If Only – Twin’s Fight
“Ish mine!” Sky angrily say. Joma was carrying him.
“Borrow.” Sunshine calmly say. Doris holding her hand.
Sabel heard the commotion.
“BFF, anong meron sa mga alaga mo?”
“Naku BFF, kanina pa sa kotse yang dalawa. Pinabuhat ko na nga papasok kay Joma si boy dahil medyo naghihilahan na sa kotse.”
“Naku lagot tayo nyan kay Mrs. Chief. Ano ba nangyari?”
“Di ko alam bff, alam mo namang limited ang English speaking skills ko.”
Joma and Sabel laughed at that.
“Shineshine! Ish mine!” “Borrow.”
“Naku, paglayuin nyo muna.”
“Sige na, akin na muna si Sky pero bigyan mo na rin ako ng pamalit na damit.” Joma told Doris.
“Salamat Joma ah.”
“Wala yun, sinu-sino pa ba magtutulungan.”
“Ako ipaghahanda ko na ng snacks yang dalawa, baka sakaling kumalma.”
“Thank you bff.”
“Wala yun bff. Mabuti at behave ang bunso, ayun tulog after dumede.”
“Maraming salamat talaga bff.”
The three went on their mission.
Joma was with Sky in the lanai where the little boy was eating his favorite snack, cupcakes. Good thing his ate Nikki had baked the night before. Sunshine was in the dining area eating hers, spaghetti cooked by ate Sabel, her favorite. Sabel with her since Doris is with Sean who is now awake would need some changing. Then mommy Maya came home.
“Mommy!” She kissed her.
“Wow, eating your favorite dish. Did you say thank you to ate Sabel.”
“Naku Mrs. Chief, panay thank you na po kanina.”
“hahaha. Teka nasaan si Sky?”
“Ah, nasa lanai po kasama ni Joma.”
Maya was wondering, mother’s instinct.
“Sabel, may dahilan ba bakit magkahiwalay ang kambal.”
“Eh Mrs. Chief, medyo lq ung kambal.”
Maya chuckled at that.
“Sabel!hahaha. Teka ano bang nangyari?”
“Eh Mrs. Chief, pagdating po nila Doris, buhat-buhat ni Joma papasok si Sky. Si Sky po galit ito pong si Sunshine kalmado.”
“Anong pinagaawayan nila?”
“Basta po ang linya nilang dalawa, si Sky- ish mine. Si Sunshine- borrow.”
Mommy Maya is now assessing what could be the cause of this petty fight of the twins.
“Sunshine? Why are you and Sky fighting?”
“Mommy, I just want to borrow his crayons.”
“Sunshine, you have your own crayons, why are you borrowing Sky’s crayons?”
“I can’t find my crayons mommy.” Then tears fall from her eyes.
“Ha? Paanong di makita eh inayos ko un kagabi at kumpleto ang gamit nila pareho.” Maya was asking herself but looked at Sabel.
“Mommy!!!” Sky coming from lanai, Joma in tow.
“Sky.” She kissed him as he neared her then he blurted.
“Mommy, Shineshine get my crayons.”
“Okay, wait Sky, Sunshine. Stop. I don’t like you two fighting. It’s not good.”
Sky’s brows furrowed, Sunshine poker face.
“Let’s go to the room. Sabel, pakiayos na lang muna dito ha at kakausapin ko lang tong dalawa.”
“Walang problema Mrs. Chief.”
-in the couple’s room-
“Sky, Sunshine, mommy is not happy that you two are fighting. It is not good. You two should be helping each other. Sky, you should lend things to your sister. It’s not good to be selfish. Do you want Sunshine not to lend things to you?”
Sky shook his head. The twins were both crying now. They are not used to their mommy scolding them.
“Sunshine, why are you borrowing Sky’s crayons? You have your own.”
“Mommy, I really can’t find my crayons in my bag.” Sunshine said in between cries.
“Okay, we will buy you a new one but you have to be careful okay? After you use it, place it back in your bag? Understand Sunshine? You too Sky?” Both nodded their heads.
“Okay, give mommy a hug.”
Both scrambled to her and give her a hug, kissing her as well. Then the door opened revealing Ricky.
“You have a meeting I was informed of?” Ricky’s greeting then noticed that there were tears on their eyes. “Okay, what happened here?” He was raising his eyebrow in inquiry.
“Hay daddy. Sabi nga ni Sabel, LQ ung kambal.”
His frowned still not understanding.
“Medyo nag-away dahil sa gamit. Nanghihiram ung isa, ayaw naman nung isa.”
“Bakit walang gamit ung isa?”
“Un nga daddy, pupunta ako sa school bukas para itanong kay teacher. Baka na-misplace sa room nila.”
“Okay, mukhang crisis averted na. well, aren’t you two going to give daddy a kiss?”
The twins run to him giving him kisses and hug as well.
“You listen to mommy okay? No more fighting?”
“Yesh dahdi!” “Yes daddy!” The twins simultaneously uttered.
“Okay, you can go out now. Sabel?”
“Pakitignan muna ung kambal.”
“Ay, areglado po. ako po muna bahala sa kanila.”
“So, how are you sweetheart?”
She was crying now. Ricky knew her really well. He embraced her and kissed her on the temple.
“That’s normal sweetheart. Minsan kailangan din natin na pagalitan sila kahit mahirap para sa atin kasi para sa ikakabuti nila yun.”
“Alam ko naman yun sweetheart, kaya lang syempre babies pa rin sila.”
Ricky just chuckled as he doesn’t want to contradict his wife.
“You’ll have to get used to it. Kesa maging spoiled brat ang mga yan, mas mahirap yun.”
“Oo nga sweetheart. Hayy, ang hirap. Pero tama ka sweetheart, mabait naman mga anak natin kaya minsan lang yan. Pero sana wag mangyari uli. Ang bigat sa dibdib sweetheart.”
He chuckled again. Feeling wonderful. Drama may not be an everyday scene in their home but from time to time, it is still welcome.
