If Only – Luke-Aira Brewing
“Wow! Ang aga mo Luke ah.”
“Nagulat naman ako sa’yo.hahaha. May naiwan kasi akong trabaho kahapon kaya inagahan ko na ang pasok.”
“Ah. Nagbreakfast ka na?”
“Oo, alam mo naman si mommy hindi pwedeng hindi kami kakain ng breakfast.”
“Ah yeah, nakakamiss din sila tita. Tapos ung kambal di ko na nakikita and may new baby pa.”
“Pwede ka naman pumasyal.”
“Ha? Nakakahiya naman.”
“Okay lang yun. Matutuwa pa ung kambal. Nagsasawa na kasi sila sa amin eh.”
They both laughed.
“Ikaw talaga Luke, palabiro. Sige, yayayain ko si Niccolo this weekend.”
“Okay, sige sabihin ko kay mommy.”
“Pero sabihan mo rin ako agad baka mamaya may lakad kayo.”
“Sige, later na lang.”
Aira went to her cubicle. Luke took his phone and send an sms to his mom.
Message: My, may lakad po ba tayo this weekend?
Reply: Wala naman Luke.. bakit?
Message: Ah my, gusto daw po kasi kayo dalawin ni Aira lalo na ung kambal at si baby Sean
Reply: Ah talaga? Kami? Hindi ikaw? Hahaha.. joke lang anak.. Sige sabihin mo, walang problema. Matutuwa rin ung kambal at may bisita.
Message: Mommy talaga. Thanks po! Yan din po sinabi ko sa kanya. Sige po, inform ko siya.
“Yes!” Then he covered his mouth, looked around if anyone heard him but there were still few people in the office.
Luke’s mood was at best throughout the day. He and Aira had their lunch together as well.
Luke was up very early. His parents were in the dining area having coffee.
“Luke, are you going to the office?”
“Ah, hindi po dad.”
“Then why are you up so early? Quite unusual for you.”
Luke was scratching his head, his mom laughing.
“Am I missing something here?”
Luke doesn’t know how to answer, so his mom did.
“Sweetheart, may parating kasing bisita. Baka maghahanda ang binata mo.”
Ricky raised his eyebrow at his son and smirk. Luke is now full red. He’s not used to his dad teasing him. Maya laughed.
“Sige na anak, gawin mo na gagawin mo. Gusto mo ng hot choco?”
“Sige po mommy. Thank you po.”
Ricky smiled and drank his coffee.
At 9 o’clock the doorbell rang. They all were in the lanai where the twins are playing with their older siblings. Upon hearing the doorbell, Luke stood up and was contemplating whether to open the door or not. His parents were just observing him. Ricky was crowding Maya as she feeds baby Sean.
“Tignan mo yang binata mo aligaga.”
“Mana lang sa’yo mommy.”
“Tinalo ako sweetheart.” And they shared a laugh.
“Hello po tita, sir. Good morning po.” Aira greeted them.
“Hello po tita, tito. Good morning din po.” Niccolo seconded.
“Hi Aira, hi Niccolo.”
“Aira, we’re not in the office. Tito will do. Good morning din sa inyo.”
Aira just smiled.
“Hi kuya Nikow.”
“Hello Sky. Hi Sunshine.”
“Sweetheart, nagpapacute baby girl mo oh.”
“Stop it sweetheart.”
Maya looked at her husband and saw him being serious. She just smiled to herself.
“Hello, Sean. Are you enjoying?”
Baby Sean was looking at her as though trying to talk back.
“Pass him to me mommy, baka nangangalay ka na.”
“Gusto mo lang ikaw magbuhat kay Sean.”
“But of course. Sinosolo mo lagi eh.”
“hahaha. Ang seloso mo talaga. Manag-mana sa’yo si Sky.”
Sky upon hearing his name.
“Nothing sweetie. I love you.”
“hahaha. Ang bulol pa rin.”
“Mommy, I love you.”
“I love you too Sunshine.”
“How about daddy?”
“Yabyu dahdi!” “I love you daddy.” The twins answered at the same time.
“Hay napakaseloso talaga. Hahaha”
“Nakakatuwa talaga parents nyo. Super sweet.” Aira comented.
“We know right.” Nikki answered.
They were settled on the table where foods were served.
“Oo nga Niknik, sana..”
“Sana ano?” Luke interrupted.
“Sana hindi magbago. Ano naman nasa isip mo bestfriend?”
“Gusto ko lang malinaw.”
“Hindi pa rin talaga kayo nagbabago.” Aira commented.
“Ganun talaga Aira pag tunay na pagkakaibigan.”
“Ewe, corny mo Niccolo.” Aira answered back. And they all laughed.
“Aira, Niccolo, kain lang kayo dyan ha. Luke, Nikki, magpasuyo na lang kayo kay Sabel kung may gusto pa kayo.”
“Yes po mommy, thank you.” Luke answered.
“Thank you po tita.” Niccolo seconded.
Luke had been so solicitous to Aira, something that didn’t go unnoticed from Nikki. Niccolo was the same with her but that was a given. Nikki throw a look at her mom who was watching them. And when their eyes connect, understanding befall her. She smiled.
She had been wondering why her kuya seem to be not too affected with his break-up with Joni but since she had been quite busy, she was not able to pester him on the details. And now she knows why. She just wish this will be for good. Her kuya is a very good man and deserves the best partner like his dad who got their mom. But of course, she still plans to pester him with this new development. She needs some scoop. Her mom seem to know a lot.
“Girl bonding time.” She mused.
“I don’t like that look from Nikki.”
“hahaha. Grabe ka sweetheart. Sa tingin lang ni Nikki nabasa mo na yun?”
“You’ll owe me something if I’m right.”
Maya just laughed at him.
“Luke, Nikki, kayo muna bahala kina Aira at Niccolo. Ipapasok lang namin si Sean at ang kambal.”
“Sige po my.” Luke answered.
“Ok po my.” Nikki’s answer.
“Niccolo, Aira, iwan muna namin kayo ha? Papaliguan lang tong mga to.”
“Sige po tita, tito. Okay lang po kami dito. Thank you po.” Aira replied.
“Sky, Sunshine, let’s get inside now.”
The twins went to their parents but Mr. Sky has something to appeal.
“Dahdi, can we play after bath?”
“After your nap time. Okay?”
Maya chuckled, Ricky smiled. And they head inside.
Another one fulfilled day spent by the family.
