Will I Be Enough – Epilogue


–After 5 years–

Maya and Ricky were still both asleep when she felt something moved. Then she heard little voices. She chance upon to look on Ricky and saw that he was awake as well and waiting for what will happen next.

Their twins then came out of the blanket with the intention of surprising them. But since both are too noisy, their parents knew very well what they were up to.

“Waaaaahhhhh!!!” Both shouted making the couple laughed. Though they know they were doing their best to be inconspicuous, they were unsuccessful. But being the good parents they were, they both pretended to be surprised.

“Wow, you shocked us.” The twins were so happy with their achievement that they plopped down in between of their parents and laughed.

Maya couldn’t help herself and peppered both the twins with kisses on their faces while Ricky watched on his family.

“Mommy stop. Hahaha..stop” Sky uttered. Sunshine was laughing so hard she couldn’t speak.

“Why are you both up so early?” Ricky then asked giving the twins kiss as well.

“Mall.” Sunshine said. The twins are 3 ½ years and not too well versed.

“Is that so? You both want to go to the mall?” Sky was nodding his head while laying down on Maya. Sky is evidently a Mama’s boy while Sunshine who crawled up on their dad, is a certified Daddy’s girl.

“Mommy mall?” Sky said and looked on Maya.

“Daddy punta daw mall tong dalawa. Papayagan mo ba? Di ba masyado pang bata tong mga to?”

Ricky then laughed, the twins laughed as well though they certainly did not understand what their mom had said that made their Dad laughed.

“Only you Mrs. Lim, only you.” Ricky went near Maya and kissed her on the lips. The twins clapped their hands and both smiling.

“Daddy, parang di ko yata kaya pag nagpaalam na tong dalawa na may lakad.”

“Mommy, don’t think ahead. Let’s enjoy our time with them while they are still young. So, tumayo na tayo at mag-ayos para magsimba then pumunta sa mall as requested by these two. Okay ba yun?” Ricky has the same fear but knows that he cannot add up to Maya’s fears. Besides, it is indeed still a long way from coming and he would make sure that their kids would always want to go with them. A good quality time always with the family.

“Tsaka mommy, pwede naman tayong gumawa pa.” Ricky was waggling his eyebrows. Maya’s eyes rounded and hit him lightly.

“Ricky! Ano ka ba. Naririnig ka ng mga bata. Tara na nga.”

Maya got up from the bed with Sky on her while Ricky was slowly getting up since he was still busy laughing and with Sunshine on him.

“Mommy, later ha.”

“Ewan ko sayo Ricardo, ang aga-aga ha!” Ricky knows she is now getting pissed but he can’t help it, he was just really feeling wonderful and he can feel it. Maya may not realize it yet, but she is definitely pregnant. If ever she is not, he would make sure that there will be another baby to come or more. Is there anything more he could ask for? A happy and fulfilled life with his loved ones.

This is definitely more than what he had prayed for.

Will I Be Enough – Finale


“So Maya, you think I will be enough for you?”

“You are not enough Ricky.. because you are more than enough! I love you more than life itself and I cannot bear the thought of you without by myside from here on. You will be the only one who could complete me.”

Ricky cannot believe that this is really happening. Maya is now back in his arms and promising him forever. And he could only think of one thing.

“Maya, I know this will be a very spur of the moment but I have to ask.”

Ricky suddenly kneeled in front of her.

“Maya, the love of my life. I know now that I cannot live another day without you. I want to wake up each morning seeing your face. I want to build a world with you by my side. And I want to start a happy family now as well. I may not have a ring with me right now, but I assure you that my promise is more than forever. So Maya, sweetheart, will you do give me the biggest of honor by agreeing to be my wife? Will you marry me Miss Maya Angelica dela Rosa?”

Maya was very much overwhelmed that her tears freely fall from her eyes. She took some deep breaths and pull Ricky up.

“Ricky, I know now as well how hard it will be for me to live each day without you. I also want to wake up seeing your face first thing in the morning and at night before sleeping. I also want that world you are thinking. So yes, Mister Richard Lim, I will marry you.”

Both were grinning from ear to ear then Ricky brought her up and spin her. Both were laughing after he stopped. They were both elated and can’t seem to stop from holding each other. It was pure bliss. The promise of forever. A life to grow with each other. And a world to build together.

What more could they ask for?

Will I Be Enough – Chapter 12

[A/N: last two chapters.. Finale and Epilogue..thanks so much for reading my stories. :) ]

Chapter 12

They were now traversing to his place. Maya insisted they do so as she needs to thank Manang Fe personally.

“So sweetheart, pano na ung work mo dun? Nagresign ka na right?”

“They actually did not accept my resignation.” Maya was then startled when Ricky suddenly stepped on the brake.

“Ay kabayo!”

“What do you mean they did not accept your resignation? You said you are here for good? You’re going back there?” Ricky’s happiness was plummeting down again, when he thought that everything’s ok here she gives him another thing to think about.

“Kalma sweetheart. Pasok muna tayo at dun tayo sa loob magusap. Puntahan ko lang si Manang Fe. Okay?”

Rikcy nods his head and assisted her inside.

“Manang Fe!” Maya hugged the elder woman who was Ricky’s nanny since his childhood. She has also been his second mother.

“Kumusta Maya? Buti at bumalik ka na.”

“Opo Manang Fe. Miss ko na si Ricky eh at kayo syempre.” Ricky smiled then left them as he went straight to the verenda.

“Manang Fe, magusap lang kami ni Ricky ng maayos. Pero ipagtimpla ko muna sya uli ng kape.”

“Sige na iha at baka mainip yan.” Manang Fe smiled. She is very happy that Maya is back. She has seen how their separation broke Ricky though she knows as well that this was not easy either on Maya’s part.

“Thank you nga po pala uli Manang Fe for looking after Ricky.”

“Wala un iha, kasiyahan ko na un.”

Maya then went to the veranda where Ricky was standing by the railing with a faraway look.

Maya went to him and hug him from the back.

“Sweetheart?” Ricky faced her and hug her.

“Upo tayo para makapagusap rin tayo ng maayos.”

“Maya, what do you mean they did not accept your resignation?”

“Oo, di nila tinanggap.” Ricky was about to interrupt when she signaled him not to.

“Yes, di nila tinanggap but I informed them I really cannot stay any longer there. I cannot bear anymore to be away from you. So what they offer was a freelance position for me. I will just need to at least provide them some of my work twice a month. So I agreed. Ok lang naman un diba?”

Ricky felt a big weight on his back has finally been released. So he stood up and hug her tight.

“Of course it is alright. It is very much all right.”

Will I Be Enough – Chapter 11

Chapter 11

–Present time–

“How did you know where to find me?” Ricky asked. They were in his car and on the way to their favorite restaurant.

Maya actually had no idea where to find him, so she called the only person who could help her. Liza.

“I called Liza. Nagulat nga ako nung sabihin nya na nagtuturo ka nga raw dito sa university. Bakit ka nga pala nagtuturo?”

“I’ll tell you once we get settled.” They are now in front of the resto.

Since it was not peak hour, they were seated immediately. They placed their orders as well.

Ricky seated himself beside Maya. Fearing that this was only a dream and that he needed a good pinch.

“So, explain to me now why are you teaching in our alma mater?”

Ricky clasped her hand in his before he explained.

“It was my way of coping. I was missing you terribly and I felt the need to reconnect with you. We started there and I felt like that the only way I could survive my everyday life is to be somewhere that would remind me of you.” Maya did not interrupt him and was just waiting for him to continue.

“It was a total hardship to face every day without you. I don’t know what had happened to us but believe me, there was never a single day that I wish I could go to you. I just keep on praying and hoping that one day you will come back to me and tell me that everything’s all right.”

Tears were falling from Maya’s eyes as she cannot believe how much Ricky is exposing himself to her. His vulnerability with her. And all she could do is hug him and cry.

“I’m sorry sweetheart. I’m really sorry. You don’t know how much I wanted to come home to you but I got scared that you wouldn’t want me back that you have moved on. I am just glad that you were feeling the same way.”

“And what made you so sure that I have not moved on?” Ricky cannot help but asked though not releasing her from their embrace.

“Eh.. I have a confession to make.” Ricky looked at her and hoping against hope that this is something that would not totally shatter him.

“I’m in constant talk with Manang Fe. And she was the one who assured me I am still your one. She just seem to forgot to tell me that you were teaching.”

Ricky smiled realizing that his fear was futile.

“Actually, only Liza knows that. It is just something to while my time. And I only spend 2-3 hours.”

Their food had arrive and they had to disengage themselves.

It was as though just yesterday, they were doing their normal routine. Ricky placing some of his food on Maya’s plate while she mix his coffee. When they realize what they were doing, they shared a good laugh.

“How was your experience in teaching? Are you a strict professor?”

“It is great. I get to see my former professors. They were actually the ones who pushed me to teach. I said that I will give it a try but then I get to enjoy it. It’s just part time nonetheless, it is fulfilling. But enough about me. You? What made you decide to come back? You’re here for good, right? ” Ricky was praying that she is indeed here for good.

Maya smiled at him before answering.

“You. And yes, I’m here for good.”

Ricky was grinning from ear to ear.

“Wait, what do you mean me?”

“I cannot bear any longer to stay there for a much longer time. You have full supported me with my dream and I have decided that it’s time to give some back to you. This is really a big step for me as I don’t know how you would react when you see me. The only thing that I could hold on to is Manang Fe’s reassurance that it is still me. I hoped and prayed that she would be right.”

Ricky smiled once more and hugged her.

“She is very much right sweetheart. I love you and have never stopped loving you. I’m sorry if you thought otherwise. I just know that our misunderstandings and petty quarrels were because we have been missing each other so much. And the reason I made no effort to call you is because I was hoping you would do so. I am afraid that you wouldn’t want to talk to me and more so I don’t want to argue with you. I don’t want us to drift apart. We may have lost communication but my love for you never ceased. It has been there and will always be there. And now that you are here, I would prove it more to you. Babawi ako sa’yo.”

“Ako din sweetheart. Babawi ako ng sobra-sobra. I love you so much and thank you for giving me a chance, us a chance.”

“There is no need to thank me for that chance. For me, we are together though we had no communication. I am committed to you from the moment you told me yes and it has never ended.”

Maya could only thank the Lord for giving her Ricky. She would just make sure that he will not be sorry for loving her.

“I love you sweetheart!” Then Maya kissed him on the lips.

“I love you more sweetheart.” Ricky answered back after the kiss.

Will I Be Enough – Chapter 10

Chapter 10

It has been their routine. Ricky would her call morning of Europe time to wake her up and she would call him evening of Manila time to bid him goodnight.

They would do Skype as long as time permits.

Their communication was doing great up until when Maya was offered a permanent position in the company. Of course Ricky was happy for this another achievement of his sweetheart but the price to pay was too much. And then his Green MRO project came along.

Their talks was lessen to one hour a day that is if they would be lucky their free time would clash. They couldn’t even do their skype sessions. Both of their time are eaten up by their works and it is somehow affecting now their relationship. Misunderstandings and petty quarrels would always ensue when they talk. Both their judgment and understanding are clouded with the reality that they are just both miserable with them not seeing each other personally and not being able as well to talk the way they used to before all works swamped them up.

Then one day, their communication just ceased. No talks. No one taking the initiative to call. But both of them feeling miserable.

“Hmmp..di man lang tumawag para kumustahin ako.”

“Why is she not calling me?”

Ricky’s frown is always evident. His subordinates are feeling his misery. Who wouldn’t, he was not the same jolly person that he was before Maya left. He doesn’t even smile at all.

Maya on the other hand focused herself on her job. She was not the same bubbly person that she was before. She put on a different persona in her to cover the loneliness and heartache she feels.

It was sad.

—after 2 years—

“I think, enough is enough.”

Maya told herself with conviction.

“It’s time.”

Will I Be Enough – Chapter 9

Chapter 9

Maya calling.

“Hi sweetheart. How was your flight?”

There was some silence.

“Are you crying sweetheart?” And he heard her sobs.

“It..(sob)..was.. (sob).. ok.”

“I’m glad to hear that.” Ricky heard Maya take some deep breaths before she answers.

“Are you in the office?”

“No, I stayed home again.”

“Again (hiccup)? Sorry. What do you mean again?”

“I actually just went home yesterday because I know I won’t be able to finish any work. And just today my head is aching terribly.” Why wouldn’t it, he was thinking too much of their separation.

Maya was actually feeling relieved because she thought she was the only one having a hard time with their situation.

“Sweetheart, would you get angry if I say that I’m glad you’re having difficulty as well with our situation?”

“No sweetheart, I just really don’t want you to see me like this. Baka mahirapan ka pa lalo.”

“Umiyak ka”? Maya is actually smiling now.

Ricky smiled to himself knowing she was smiling too.

“Yeah, I did sa airport. Probably why I was having a headache.”

Maya then laughed.

“Sayang di ko nakita.”

And their conversation went on as though it has already been years that they were apart but in reality it has only been fourteen hours.

Will I Be Enough – Chapter 8

Chapter 8


Maya and Ricky are at the airport lounge, waiting for her to board.

Ricky was holding Maya’s hand too tight, seeming not wanting to let her go. Maya was just letting him as she too was having a hard time but she knows she has to do this or else she will be faced with the hard ‘What If’.

Then the call has arrived. Passengers to fly to London are now being called. Ricky heaved the biggest sigh and faced Maya to hug her. The tightest hug conveying his emotion of how hard it will be for him. The longest kiss to convey his love, expressing that he will just be here waiting for her when she comes back.

Maya, returning the hug and the kiss with as much emotion she could send back.

This is not easy for the both of them but they both know as well that they will both just be there for each other.

“Sige na sweetheart, they are calling now the first class passengers.”

Of course Ricky made sure she will be at her most convenient when she flies to Europe.

Maya was crying hard and hugging Ricky tight.

Ricky could only caress her back as he too was controlling his emotion.

“Go on sweetheart, you have to go onboard.”

Maya do some deep breaths to control herself and could just only nod. Ricky assisted her to the boarding area. Being the CEO of the company doing the maintenance of this airline made it easier for him to be on the boarding area.

Ricky kissed her on her forehead before placing his own forehead on her.

“I love you sweetheart. You take very good care of yourself there and make sure to call me once you arrive. We’ll call each other anytime you need or anytime I want to see your face. We’ll make sure our communication is open and there.”

Maya could only nod as she is keeping herself from crying more. And she hug him one last time and walk away.

Ricky swallowed hard, a big lump on his throat, but unknown to him, tears started falling from his eyes and clouding his vision as Maya gets out of his sight.

It took him some more minutes before he was able to compose himself and push himself out of the airport and drove himself home. He is sure that he won’t be able to finish any work with the turmoil on his mind.
