If Only – Girls’ Talk
“Mom, do you still feel kilig with dad even if mag-asawa na kayo?”
“Oo Nikki. Hindi na ata mawawala yun, ang sweet kasi ng daddy nyo.”
“Yihiii, si mommy.”
“Ikaw talaga Abby.”
“Sana ako din makahanap tulad ni dad.”
“Abby!” Maya and Nikki said in chorus.
“Baby, wag ganyan. Naku, baka di na pumayag si daddy nyo sa ganitong girl talk.” Maya said while smiling.
“Alam ko po yun mommy and ate. Nasasabi ko lang naman po…”
“Okay na Abby, but better na you don’t think of it.”
“Tama si ate.”
“Okay, back to my questioning. Mom, do you ever feel to be the luckiest woman in the world for having your dream guy?”
Maya smiled at her daughter before answering, “Syempre naman Nikki. Iba ang stature ng dad nyo nung makilala ko. At di ko man lang naisip na mamahalin nya ako gaya ng pagmamahal ko sa kanya. Tingin ko nga minsan, higit pa.”
“Wow mom, haba ng hair.”
“hahaha, ikaw talaga Abby.”
“Mom, do you think it would go away?”
“Ang alin Nikki?”
“Yung kilig? Yung love?”
Maya knew there was more than what her daughter is talking about, and more so with this requested girl talk.
“Alam mo anak, ung kilig at love pwedeng mawala.”
“Oo. Pero, kapag magkatuwang nyong pinayabong ng kapareha mo, mas lalago at mas magiging matatag at matibay ito.”
“Awwww, mom!” Then she sobbed as she hugged her mom.
“Nikki? May problem ba?”
“Mom, I’m scared.”
“Takot? San ka natatakot?”
“Mom, Niccolo is so sweet. Baka maubos.”
Maya chuckled at her, “Anak, ang haba talaga ng mga buhok natin.”
“Mommm.” Nikki protested.
“Alam mo anak, hanggat sinusuklian mo rin ng pagmamahal ang binibigay sayo ni Niccolo, hindi mauubos yun. At hindi ako naniniwalang nawawala ang pagmamahal ng isang tao lalo na kung tunay ito.”
“I missed this mom.”
“Anak, kahit busy ako, wag mong isiping hindi mo ako pwedeng kausapin lalo kung merong bumabagabag sayo. Ikaw din Abby. Okay?”
“Sama ka na dito Abby.” Maya motioned for Abby to join them since Nikki has not let go of her.
Then they heard a knock.
“Pasok.” Maya called out. And was surprised when the twins went in while Ricky has Sean on his arms.
“O, sweetheart, bakit nagising tong mga to?”
“I checked on Sean sweetheart, because he was crying. Then these two got up from their bed and was looking for you. I told them you were having some girls’ talk with Nikki and Abby.”
“Mommy, why am I not here? I’m a girl too.” Sunshine complained making her mom and sisters laugh.
“Come here baby. Of course, you can join this girls’ talk but not for now because you are still a baby and need to sleep early, okay?”
“Okay mommy, but when I’m a big girl, I will join you, ate Nikki and ate Abby, okay?”
“Okay baby, but please don’t wish to grow up fast.”
“Yeah, and don’t think of girls’ talk princess.” Of course, daddy is very allergic with it. Maya made a pointed look at Abby who smiled back.
“Mommy, let’s go. I want sleep.” And the ever-grumpy kiddo piped in.
“Okay kuya Sky. Kiss your ates good night now.” She stood up beside her husband after kissing Nikki and Abby.
He frowned and pouted but followed his mom, nonetheless. Nikki had another thing on her mind as she hugged her cute little bro tight making him squirm.
“Ate!” Their parents chuckled as Abby and Sunshine joined in.
[a/n: gusto ko rin sana ng ganyang girl talk sa nanay ko, kaso hindi naman akin si Richard Lim. 😁]
Happy Weekend everyone! ☺️
