If Only

[A/N: I don’t know what happened pero nakabuo ako ng isang kwento..hahaha..enjoy]

If Only..

The twins are now 4 years old and to start their schooling. Everyone are too excited that their grandparents, tatits and cousin flew to Manila to send them to school as well.

–Night before–

Maya, Ate Nikki, Ate Abby, Kute, Lola Nanay, Lola and Manang Fe were all busy fixing the twins’ things for school. The twins were also in the room busily playing.

Lola Nay: Maya, anak, ok na ba ang uniporme ng kambal?

Maya: Opo Nay. Nalabhan na po ni Doris at naplantsa na rin.

Lola: Oh, I’m really so excited to see them in school.

Abby and Nikki: Us too!

Kute: Mukha ngang excited tayong lahat. Tignan mo at nandito tayong lahat.

And everyone shared a good laugh.

Maya: Hay, ang bilis talaga ng panahon. Mag-aaral na ang kambal namin tapos mag-elementary tapos..

Kute: hep hep hep..Maya..ang OA mo..playschool pa lang.. elementary agad? Di ba pwedeng nursery muna? Prep saka ang elementary?

Everyone shared another laugh with the siblings banter.

Maya: Hay naku kute. Naiinitindihan ko na ngayon ung naramdaman mo nung unang araw ni Cho sa school. Ang hirap pala ng feeling.

Nikki: Awww, Mom. Saglit lang naman ung schooling ng kambal. A good two hours time and they will be home. You won’t be missing much.

Abby went to their mom and hugged her.

Abby: Oo nga po Mommy, saglit lang po un. Pag wala po kayong pasok, eh pwede nyo naman po sila bantayan di ba?

Maya: Hay, thank you mga ate. Pinapagaan nyo pakiramdam ko. Hug ko nga kayo pareho.

Lola Nanay: Ah, teka, sama kami dyan.

Kute: Group hug!

The twins who were busy playing saw the commotion and went running to them, not wanting to be left behind.

Sky: Mommy! Mommy! Up!

Sunshine: Up!

Maya: Ay, ang mga babies ko.

Maya went down to the twins’ level and hugged them both. She was thinking how she can carry them both at the same time when the door opened.

Ricky: Mommy, what are you doing?

Maya: Eh daddy, nagpapabuhat tong kambal..nakita kasi kaming naggroup hug, di ko naman alam pano ko bubuhatin ng sabay.

Ricky: Let me.

Ricky carried the twins like nothing.

Ricky: Buddies, don’t do that to Mommy ok? She cannot carry you both at the same time.

The twins nodded both their heads with smile since they are both happy to be carried by their dad.

Sky: Otay!!!

With matching raised hands making the adults laughed. Maya couldn’t help herself but to poke on Sky’s armpits making him laugh.

Ricky: Mommy, careful. Dalawa silang hawak ko.

Maya: Ay sorry daddy! 😀

Lola Nanay: O sya, sya.. patulugin nyo na yang kambal at may pasok na bukas. Para matulog na rin tayo at maagang makapag-ayos.

Kute: Tama!

Everyone left the couple so they could send the twins to sleep.

Maya: Sky, Sunshine, are you both excited for tomorrow?

Sky/Sunshine: Yesh!!!

The twins said at the same time then clapped both their hands.

Maya: Ay! Ang saya ng dalawa. Naku wag muna kayo magmadali lumaki ha.

Ricky: Mommy, playschool pa lang..

Then he heard a sniff.

Ricky: Hay si Mommy, senti agad.

He moved to hug her after which the twins joined too.

Sunshine: lab you mommy!

Sky: yab you!

Maya: Awww..ang sweet talaga ng babies ko

Ricky: Naku buddies, papaiyakin nyo na naman si Mommy.

Maya could only give a small smile with sniffle.

Maya: Hay, sige na sleep na po kayong dalawa at may pasok na bukas.

Sky: No!

With matching shake of his head and a mischievous smile.

Maya: Ah ganun. Oh eh di, kilitian tayo.

And so Maya did tickle Sky making him squirm and shriek with glee. Ricky and Sunshine were just watching and laughing alongside.

Maya: Ok enough now. You both really need to sleep now. Baka pumasok pa sila Lola, lagot tayong lahat.

Ricky: Good night buddies. Sleep well!

Ricky and Maya settled the twins on their bed and tucked them in. Kissing them both as well on their foreheads.

Ricky: Coffee Mommy?

Maya: Sure Daddy! Una ka na sa lanai and I’ll make the coffee.

Ricky: No, sabay na tayo.

Maya: Ok.

-at the lanai-

Ricky: So, how do you really exactly feel with the twins going to school?

Maya: Yung totoo?

Ricky nodded.

Maya: Natatakot ako. Natatakot kasi baka di nila magustuhan dun, baka may mambully sa kanila. At natatakot ako kasi lumalaki na sila.

Ricky motioned for her to move closer to him. When she did, he put his arm around her to make her comfortable on him.

Ricky: Sweetheart, what you feel is very understandable. Hindi talaga natin maiwasan ung attachment natin sa mga anak natin pero we need to put in our minds na dadating ung oras na magsisilakihan sila at hihiwalay sa atin

Maya: Alam ko naman un sweetheart, kaya lang, babies ko un eh. L Di ko pa yata kayang isipin na maglalakihan na sila. Dalawa agad un Daddy.

Ricky could only chuckle, hugged Maya and give her a kiss on her temple.

Ricky: Pwede pa naman tayong gumawa.

Maya pinched him on the side.

Ricky: Ouch sweetheart. Why? I’m serious. Malalaki na ung kambal kaya pwede na.

Ricky said while waggling his eyebrows on her.

Maya: Ewan ko sayo Ricardo. Dyan ka na nga.

Ricky: Tama, tulog na tayo sweetheart at baka mauna pang magising ung kambal sa atin

Ricky said but in a teasing tone.

Maya: Hmmmp..

Ricky’s laughter followed Maya on her way to their room. Though things do happen when they want it to happen. J

  1. I was like a fool, always on the guard as I was reading through this story. The title gave me a different insinuation. I really thought that something happened to one of the characters so the title went as it is. During the first few parts, I was already like “Oh no! Is Richard dead already that’s why “If Only” ang title? If only he was just alive?” I just later on realized it was titled that way, “If Only,” to show that if only the program is still up and running, this might already be the scenario by now! Haha! Oh well! Me and my dreadful thoughts! It was a nice read though! 😀
