Date Night

When Maya went out of the airport, she was surprised to see her husband waiting.

” Sweetheart! Anong ginagawa mo dito?” Ricky kissed her first on the lips as his greeting before answering her.

” It’s our date night.” He simply stated.

” huh? May napagusapan ba tayo?”

” Wala. Masama bang idate ko ang asawa ko?”

But Maya was just actually trying her hardest to keep to herself her kilig of the idea that they will ve having a date tonight.

He really is the best husband in town, Maya mused.

” I love you!” Maya simply answered.

” I love you more Mrs. Lim!” Ricky hugged her before helping her to get inside the car.

And off they go wherever that is. 😊

Because We Were Meant to Be – Epilogue

Epilogue

“Luke, pakigising na ang mga kapatid mo, para makapagready na for the church. Mag-ayos ka na rin.” Maya sweetly asked their eldest. She could only shake her head feeling so blissful. Luke, who is now 14 years old, is certainly a carbon copy of his dad. Thinking of her husband of 15 years, still give her the ‘kilig’ that she felt the very first time.

“Hi sweetheart.” Maya was startled when Ricky hugged her from behind then kissed her on her cheek.

“Mukhang ang lalim ng iniisip mo ah. Nandito lang naman ako.” Ricky said while chuckling, reminding her how he love to tease her.

“Ang aga-aga sweetheart ha!” Maya said monotonously but her eyes were twinkling.

Then suddenly somebody bumped on them, surprising them both.

“Sky!” Nikki, who’s 12 years of age, was trying to run after her younger brother while holding Sunshine, Sky’s twin sister.

Maya scooped up their youngest.

“Hmmm! Bakit mo tinatakbuhan si Ate Nikki, ha Sky?”

“No..bath..no” Sky said while shaking his head. Sky and Sunshine were just two, explaining why they are a bit struggling with words. But Sunshine is the well behaved one. Sky is the epitome of definite kakulitan. Sky hide on his mother’s neck and was smiling mischievously. Richard was trying his hardest to hide his smile.

Luke came out Nikki’s and Abby’s room, holding Abby’s hand. Abby, the third child, will turn 9 that day, that’s why the family will go to church.

“Hi Abby, happy birthday baby.” Maya kissed Abby on the cheek and directed Sky to do the same. The rest did as well.

“Thank you po Mommy. But please don’t call me baby anymore, I’m a big girl na po.”

Ricky and Maya looked at each other.

“Really Abby?” Ricky asked. “Sayang naman ung dollhouse na binili namin ni Mommy, di na pala pwede sayo.”

Abby’s eyes went big, knowing what dollhouse her Dad was talking about. It was her request a few months ago.

“Uhmm, Mom, Dad. Pwede pa naman po siguro sa akin un.” Abby smiled.

Ricky, Maya, Luke and Nikki laughed at Abby’s response. Sky and Sunshine who doesn’t understand laughed along with the rest.

They are indeed a picture of one big happy family.

Late at night.. coffee time.

“Sweetheart, are you happy?”

Ricky was sipping on his coffee when Maya asked, he put down his cup and looked straight into her eyes.

“I am not happy.. I am contented. You are the one great answered prayer for me. The kids are the great bonuses.”

Maya felt tears pricking on her eyes as her emotion was overwhelming her. She couldn’t have asked for a better partner. Ricky has certainly proved he was more than worth of anyone. She is indeed happy and more so, contented in her life. She was blessed with a very beautiful family but she still have one more question on her mind.

“Sweetheart, why do you think we ended up together?”

“Because we were meant to be.” Ricky simply stated then captured Maya’s lips “No more reasons to explain. You and I were destined to be together. Even if the universe conspire to take you away from me, I will do everything to make sure that you and I will be together forever. I love you and will only love you. Any more questions Mrs. Lim?”

Maya shook her head no.

“Good. I think I may need to prove something more.” Maya was confused when Ricky suddenly scoop her up and headed directly to their room. Realization dawn on her and she could only laugh. This is indeed a happy life.

[A/N: Thank you all for reading my story. It really warms my heart how everyone seemed to enjoy reading my story. Pwede na pala akong writer..hahaha..thank you all! #kapitbisigkaadiks ]

Because We Were Meant to Be – Finale

[A/N: as promised.. :) Happy Morning everyone!]

Finale.

There was a small get together of their families. Everyone were basking with happiness. Who wouldn’t? After the very long wait, the main characters of their love story has finally realized their feelings for one another. It was indeed something to celebrate.

“Happy?”

Maya nodded her head before saying, “Very happy.”

She clung her arms on his biceps feeling so satisfied in her life. She is with the love of her life, her and his family are both happy for them. She couldn’t ask for more.

“Hon, I’ll just go to the loo.”

“Ok.”

Ricky kissed her on the lips before extricating himself away from her. Maya heave a thankful sigh. Then suddenly the lights went off. Maya was a bit shocked that she has not moved from where Ricky left her.

One by one candles were lit. Maya was so confused, she doesn’t know what was happening. Then she saw her sister, Nanay Tere, Ricky’s parents, Mama Esmeralda and Papa Roberto. Her friends, Eds with her husband Simon, John, her bff, Emman, Ryan and his wife, Alex and other people who were important to her and Ricky. And there at the end of the aisle was her man. Ricky was looking straight at her, holding a mic on one hand and a box on the other. And then he spoke.

“Hon, our love story was no extraordinary but because it was you and me, it is certainly beyond extraordinary. I may have cared for you in a pretense of being your cousin but know this one thing, you were more than to me the moment I laid my eyes on you. The day you spoke to me was the last time I call my heart my own. Because it had been yours from that day on. You are my sole owner, from then, today until forever. You are my life and my light. I will be nothing without you, so I ask you, my dear love. Will you do me the extraordinary honor by marrying me?”

Ricky was walking towards her while saying those words and was kneeling now in front of her asking the inevitable question.

Tears were streaming down Maya’s face. She cannot control it. She thought there was nothing she could ask for but here is Ricky, giving more.

Ricky was looking straight at her and patiently waiting for her to respond. She inhaled and exhale to compose herself and to give answer.

Maya looked into Ricky’s eyes and only see forever with him.

“Yes! Yes! Yes! I will marry you!”

Everyone expelled their breath as Maya gave her answer. Most of the women were shedding a tear or two, including Emman. It was indeed a beautiful ending of the love story they all have silently waited to happen. And now it is more than what they expected.

Ricky finally stood up, put the ring on Maya’s ring finger and kissed her. Kissed her with all the love in the world. Everyone around them were all smiles, clapping, cheering and some hooting for them.

While hugging Maya, Ricky spoke once again, “Thank you everyone for sharing this momentous day with us. I cannot thank you all for the support, understanding and love you shared with us. Nay Tere, Kris, I cannot promise that I won’t hurt Maya, but it will never be intentional. But I promise that she will be the only woman I will love or three..” Maya glared at him.. Ricky kissed her and continued “more, with daughters in mind.” Maya could only slap him with his playfulness but loving him more nonetheless.

It was indeed a future to look forward to. Kids of their own. A little him and a little her. Their family.

Now definitely, there is nothing more she could ask for.

Finale.

Because We Were Meant to Be – Chapter 11

Chapter 11

Maya was surprised once again upon seeing another bouquet of Sunflower on her desk. She looked for the card and read the message.

Message: Hi Maya! Wishing you a wonderful day ahead. Coffee later? –R

Maya was suppressing a smile. Emman who was beside her suddenly spoke up surprising her.

“So, pupunta na ba tayo sa parlor?”

Maya had a confused look on her face.

“Sobrang haba na po kasi ng hair nyo baka gusto mo pa-trim.”

The bestfriends laughed together then her phone beeped, indicating a message was received.

Message: Hope you liked the flowers. Coffee?

Maya’s smile was automatic that Emman had to look on her phone to know what was causing it or rather who was the reason behind it. Then he smiled upon reading Ricky’s name.

“Ganda talaga ng friend ko. Suklayan kita you like?” Maya laughed once more before she replied to Ricky.

Reply: Sure, later after work. And thanks a lot for the flowers. And why sign it as R?

Message: I’ll explain later. See you!

Emman stepped out of the room, seeing his friend has already zoned out to Ricky’s world.

“Sana lang talaga magtapat na kayong dalawa ng nararamdaman for one another. Di na kaya ng pink powers ko ang pagkamanhid nyo guys.”

-After work.

“Hi!” Ricky greeted Maya.

“Hello!”

“Shall we go?” Maya nodded in agreement.

-café

“So, will you explain why you signed it R?”

Ricky explained what had transpired between him and his cousin. And the conversation they had. Maya was speechless.

“You like me?” Maya unsurely asked.

Ricky answered, “I believe we have established that. But I will say it, Yes, I like you. No scratch that. I. Love. You. I think from the very start that I laid my eyes on you, you owned my heart. Now, the question is, do you feel the same way for me?”

Maya timidly nod but Ricky was unsatisfied.

“What was that Maya?” He asked, teasing Maya.

“Yes! I love you too.”

“YES!!!” Ricky thundered making other patrons looked in their direction. Maya placed her hand on Ricky’s mouth but was smiling.

“Thank you Maya. You don’t know how happy you made me.”

“Eh teka, hindi ba masyadong mabilis?”

“Mabilis? Ang tagal nga eh. Ung wedding naiready na ata ng pamilya natin tayo na lang inaantay.”

They both laughed. Looking at each other with all love in the world on their eyes.

-The End.

[A/N: may finale at epilogue pa po..working on those. Salamat sa pagtiyaga sa story na to.back to work muna me.sana may masimulan uli bukas]

Because We Were Meant to Be – Chapter 10

Chapter 10

“Pare, kumusta ang date?”

“Ok naman brod.”

“Oh, ok naman pala eh bakit ganyan ang mukha mo? Meron bang nangyari na di nyo napagkasunduan?”

“Wala naman. Nababagabag lang kasi ako. May karibal ata ako pare.”

“Huh? Pano mo naman nasabi?” Ryan’s thought: “sabi ni Emman wala naman naaligid kay Maya..”

“Eh pare, pagdating ko sa office nya may flowers sya. Hindi daw nya alam kanino galing. Akala nga daw nila Emman sa kin galing. Eh ung flowers na ibibigay ko nasa kotse ko pa nun. Mas gusto ko kasi ako ang personal na magbigay.”

Then something dawned on Ryan. Then he laughed out loud. Ricky was surprised with Ryan.

“Anong nakakatawa dun pare?”

Ryan did a hand gesture to Ricky telling him to wait so he could get his bearing back.

“Pare sorry..”

“Sorry san?”

“Wait lang, patapusin mo lang ako. Akala ko kasi mabagal ka eh.”

Ricky who got a confused face waited patiently for Ryan to tell what he got to say.

“Pare, ako nagpadala nung flowers..”

Upon hearing those words, Ricky stood up from his seat and grabbed Ryan on his lapels.

“ANONG SABI MO!?!” Ricky gave his cousin a murderous look.

“Woah! Insan kalma! Let me explain.”

Though Ricky was fuming with anger, he sat down and waited for his cousin explain himself.

“Siguraduhin mong matutuwa ako sa paliwanag mo.”

“Ok. Ganito kasi. Matagal ko nang alam, actually lahat ng nasa paligid nyo, kayong dalawa lang ata hindi, na may pagitngin kayo sa isa’t isa.” Ryan looked at Ricky gauging his reaction. Seeing that he was mulling on what he had said, he continued.

“..so bilang pinsan mo at gusto kong maging masaya ka rin tulad ko, nagplano ako to play cupid for you and Maya. Kaso nakapagsimula ka na pala. Ung flowers was supposed to be from you. Eh dahil naexcite ako nung ikwento mo na magkasama kayo nung weekend, nakalimutan ko na may naka-sked nga palang flowers for Maya. Sasabihin ko sana sayo kahapon kaso nasa alapaap ka at nawala na rin sa isip ko.”

“What was ‘my message’ there?” Ricky monotonously asked.

Ryan cleared his throat before answering, “To the most beautiful girl to grace the earth. Good morning. –R”

Then and only then did a smile formed on Ricky’s face. And then he laughed. He laughed so hard that Ryan was really worried if his cousin was ok.

“I didn’t know you had it in you. That was really something but nonetheless, thank you! I do appreciate the effort but you really shouldn’t play cupid. It doesn’t suit you. And next time, do warn me. I was jealous of myself.”

Only then Ryan laughed and nodded his head. He was really too shocked to utter a word. He promise not to make his cousin angry ever. He was like an angry bear, he thought.

“Anyway, how are we to explain those flowers with Maya? At pano mo napapasok sa loob ng office nya un?”

“Uhmm.. I had a help.”

Someone pop on his mind.

“Si Emman?” Ryan nodded.

“Kayo pala ang mga number one sa fans club namin.”

“I think second lang kami.”

“What? Sino number 1?”

“Mga parents at kapatid nyo. Naiplano na nga ata wedding nyo eh. Kayo na lang talaga inaantay.”

Ryan chuckled while Ricky shook his head feeling amused. He feels like the world is conspiring in his favor. He just need to convince Maya.

Because We Were Meant to Be – Chapter 9

Chapter 9

Ricky arrived early in school since his mind was really not on his work, so Ryan just told him to go already.

“Ricky!” Emman gushed upon seeing him.

“Uy, Emman! Kumusta? Dito ka rin pala.”

“Yes! Hindi talaga kami mapaghihiwalay ni Mayabels. Papunta ka ba sa kanya?”

“Ah, oo sana. Kaso hindi ko alam san classroom nya.”

Emman could only laugh.

“Anong classroom. Baka office.”

“Ah, sa faculty office?”

“Hindi. Sa office nya. Guidance counselor sya dito.”

Ricky was surprised.

“Wow! Talaga?” Ricky was feeling proud for her.

“Yup! At ang room nya ay ung room na yun sa dulo.” Pointing on the last room in the hallway.

“Thanks Emman and nice seeing you again.”

“Walang anuman. At sana sa susunod may maganda ng development.”

“Development? Ng ano?”

Emman just smiled at him.

“Bye.”

Ricky could only shake his head not understanding what Emman was pointing out.

-knock-

“Pasok.”

Ricky comes in.

“Good afternoon po Miss Guidance Counselor.”

“Hahaha Ricky! Patawa ka.”

“Nagulat kasi ko. Di ko akalain. Pero it suits you.”

Maya just smiled. The Ricky noticed the bouquet of flowers.

“Wow! Kanino galing?”

Maya felt her heart plummeted down upon hearing what Ricky said. She was hoping that it was from him.

“Actually, hindi ko alam eh. Pagdating ko nandyan na. Sabi ni Emman baka sayo daw galing, baka daw pagpapasalamat mo sa pagsama ko sayo nung isang araw. R kasi ung nasa signature.”

Ricky’s mind was in turmoil, thinking that he has a competition at hand.

Ricky cleared his throat. “Actually, ung flowers na ibibigay ko nasa kotse, may nauna na pala sa kin.”

Maya’s head shoot back up looking at him. Mouth agape. “Did he just say what I think I heard him say?”

Ricky who was oblivious of her reaction just uttered: “Are you ready to go?”

“Um, yeah. Tara.”

-In the car.

“Here Maya. These are for you.”

Ricky presented her a much beautiful bouquet of flowers. Bouquet of Sunflower to be specific.

“Wow! Ricky, thank you! This is my favorite flower. How did you know?”

“I just know this befits you, more than roses or any other flowers on earth.”

Both smiled at another, sending some message to each other that hopefully each one understood.

Because We Were Meant to Be – Chapter 8

Chapter 8

Maya was surprised upon arriving to her office. There was a beautiful bouquet of flowers awaiting her. She checked on it and looked for the card.

Message: To the most beautiful girl to grace the earth. Good morning. –R

A knock was heard on her door, and Emman got in.

“Oh my pink gosh! Who is it from?” Emman was smiling, his eyes were twinkling though. He seem to know something.

“Ah, hindi ko alam eh. R lang nakalagay.” Maya then showed the card to him.

“Hmmm..hindi kaya kay Ricky galing?”

“Huh? Bakit naman?”

“Baka nagpapasalamat. Di ba sinamahan mo siyang magunwind?” Maya confided to Emman last night since sleep has evaded her, with her mind floating due to what transpired the whole afternoon with Ricky.

“Kung siya nga, pano ko magpapasalamat? Baka mamaya hindi pala sa kanya galing, ang assuming ko naman nun. Tsaka malay ba natin, baka gusto lang talaga magunwind nung tao.”

“Ewan ko sayo Mayabels. Kung gusto nyang magunwind, pwede naman nyang ayain ung pinsan nya, si Ryan. Bakit ikaw?

“Kasi may asawa na si Ryan. Syempre baka nahiya si Ricky.”

“At sayo hindi?”

Maya had nothing to reply.

Emman had long been gone to attend to his class. Maya still got time to mull on what to do. Since she has finished all pending works last week.

“Ah, bahala na nga.” Maya told herself.

Message: Hi Ricky!

Ricky was busy reading the documents Ryan had presented to him when his phone beeped.

A smile formed on his face upon reading who the message sender was.

Reply: Hi Maya! How was your day so far? Hope it’s better than mine. J

Message: Why? Full load ba uli?

Reply: Oo eh. Natambakan ng mga kailangan basahin at pirmahan. May lakad ka ba mamaya? Ayain sana kita magmeryenda after work or dinner kung anong oras ka uuwi.

Maya did a double check upon reading the message Ricky sent.

“Is he really inviting me out???”

Reply: Uhmm..sige meryenda na lang kung maaga labas mo. 4:30 kasi labas ko.

Message: Ok, sunduin na lang kita dyan.

Emman burst into her room. Maya who was busily reading the last message from Ricky felt so shocked with her friend.

“Oh anong meron at ang lapad ng ngiti. Mapupunit na naman ang mukha?”

“Emman talaga. Wala, natutuwa lang ako.”

“At bakit nga?”

“Inaya kasi ako ni Ricky magmeryenda mamayang uwian.”

“Oh my pink gosh! Umamin ba na sya ang nagpadala nung flowers?”

“Ha, eh di ko naitanong. Nahihiya ako eh.”

Emman can only roll his eyes.

On the other hand.

“Pinsan, baka gusto mo kong pansinin?” Ryan poked Ricky who seem got lost.

“Sorry Ry. Katext ko kasi si Maya.”

“Oh. So ano na?”

“Niyaya ko magmeryenda, pumayag naman!”

“Ayun naman. Nice brod!”

“Grabe ka naman Ry. Meryenda lang.”

“Oh. Eh di ba nung isang araw magkasama rin kayo? Ano na ba? Umamin ka na ba?”

“Hindi pa. Pero napatigil ko na siya sa pagtawag ng kuya sa kin.” Ricky said all smiles.

Ryan laughed and was feeling happy with what’s happening forgetting something he has done.
