If Only – A Trip to Remember
“Sweetheart? Seryoso ka ba dito?”
“Yes, everything has already been booked.”
“Pero, may pasok ako.”
“Already been taken care of.”
“Ha?” She scratched her head. “Okay. Pero, pano ung mga bata? Ang hirap naman iwanan lalo na sina Sky, Sunshine at Sean. Tapos may pasok ang mga ate at kuya.”
Ricky sat down beside his wife and hugged her before kissing her on the temple.
“Sweetheart, wala ka nang dapat isipin. Your wonderful husband has thought of everything.” As he playfully raised his eyebrows up and down.
She was still unconvinced when they heard their van come in to their garage. Then shouts were heard from their children. They went out of their room. And Maya was more than surprised.
“Nay? Tay? Papa? Mama?” Then she looked at her husband who was smiling down at her.
“Sweetheart! Grabe ka talaga. Ikaw na talaga ang the Best Husband in the Universe.”
“I know.” He responded.
“Conceited.” And they both laughed before they greeted their respective parents.
“Nay, Ma, pano po kayo kinausap ni Ricky?”
“Naku Maya, matagal na rin namin gustong lumuwas ng tatay mo kaso parang di kami makatyempo. Eh nung isang linggo, tumawag nga si Richard, ayun ang tatay mo, tuwang-tuwa. Makakahindi pa ba ako eh miss na miss ko na rin ang mga apo ko.”
“When Ricky called me, I didn’t ask your papa if he’s free. I just told him that we need to be in the Philippines the following week and that we need to stay at least for two weeks. Alam nyo naman si Roberto, balae, Maya, pag di ka nag-demand, naku! Malabong makaalis kami.”
“Salamat po talaga, nay, Ma. Hindi ko talaga kayang iwanan ung mga bata.”
“Oh, no worries dear. It will be our pleasure to look after the kids. Kami naman ang susulit sa kanila.”
“Tama ka balae.”
“Tay, Pa, thanks for coming. Alam ko kasing hindi papayag si Maya kung walang maiiwan sa mga bata.”
“Naku, Richard, ako pa ang magpapasalamat sa’yo kasi miss ko na talaga ang mga apo ko. Makakapag-bonding kami.”
“I can’t agree more with you, Arturo. Kaya son, don’t worry about a thing.”
It was indeed one well planned trip by Ricky, as they were able to explore the city of Toronto. And what made it more memorable for Maya was, they have VIP access for the ASAP Live in Toronto show.
“Sweetheart!!! Ang gwapo-gwapo ni Richard Yap lalo ni papa P!!! aaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!”
Yes, a very annoyed Mr. Richard Lim was all frown at his wife.
“I can only blame myself for bringing you here.” He mumbled.
“Hahaha. Naku, sweetheart, kalma ka lang dyan. Masaya lang talaga ako na dito pa sa Canada natin sila nakita. Thank you, sweetheart! I love you.” Maya was sweetly talking her husband, who somehow got appeased. He placed an arm around her, which she didn’t mind, since she knows he was really pissed off due to his cute jealousy.
After the event,
“Sweetheart, ang swerte natin. Akalain mong makakuha tayo ng teddy bear. Matutuwa sigurado si Sunshine.”
“Buti kay Mr. Avelino ang nakuha mo. Baka binalik ko sa nagbato kung galing kina Mr. Pascual at Mr. Yap yan.”
And Maya couldn’t hold it anymore as she laughed out loud at her husband’s outburst. When she calmed down,
“Naku, sweetheart! Ang cute-cute mo talaga. Hahaha. At kuhang-kuha ni Sky yang pagiging grumpy.” She told him as she held his cheeks before kissing him on the lips, which he returned at once.
“Let’s go.” He pulled her to walk fast.
“O, san naman tayo pupunta?”
“Ako naman ang pakiligin mo.”
And off they went back to their hotel room.
To play with the teddy bear. Hahaha
Whatever that is, let’s leave it to them. 😀
