1st Chapter
DK || Sara || Andy || Nof || Kim

"Shut up, Sara. Hindi nga ako makakapunta sa party mo or whatsoever. So cut the
crap, will you?"
"Fine. Dyan ka na sumama sa so called "friends" mo. Sila naman yung tumulong sa
'yo nung iniwan ka ni--"

"Don't you ever dare try to mention his name."


"It's been a year, Dana."
"It's DK. Dana is so dead." I loathe my old name. Everytime na maririnig ko yun
, it brings back memories. Old memories. Memories i want to bury.
"Dana, DK o kung ano man ang tinatawag sa'yo ng mga "friends" mo, what i was tr
ying to say is move on. It's been a year. No calls, no text, no e-mail. Kinalimu
tan ka na niya."
Yeah, right. Kinalimutan ko na nga siya, di ba? Geez. Sino ba ang niloloko ko?
How can i forget that guy. That guy who gives me happiness but constantly brings
me down?
"This is going to nowhere. I better get going, male late ako sa class ko."
1 year, 365 days since he left me. Ni hindi niya ako hinayaang mag explain. Hin
di niya ako tinanong kung totoo ba lahat ng sinabi nung kaibigan niyang "hudas".
Paano ako makakapag move on kung puno ng tanong yung isip ko? Maniniwala kaya s
iya pag sinabi kong hindi ko alam yung mga nangyari, na lasing lang ako? O baka
iwan pa rin niya ako para sumama sa babaeng yun. Regret is such a cruel thing.
To: Kimmy Btch, Nof Btch
Cafeteria. Meet u later.
Just so you know, nagshift na ako ng course. From BS Accountancy to
Designing. My old folks weren't disappointed with me or whatever. My
igner kaya no wonder gusto ko ding maging designer. And in the first
i ko naman gustong maging accountant, it was ate Dannie's dream, not

BA Fashion
mom's a des
place, hind
mine.

I also changed my hairstyle and the way I dress and i must say, i like my self
better.
"Ouch! Watch where-- Oh my god. What a nice way to start my day."
"Sorry, Dana.."
"Don't bother say sorry. Wala ng magagawa eh, what's done is done. The only con
solation you gave me is that hindi tayo nagka anak. Ayokong manakit ng damdamin
ng bata pag sinabi kong si hudas ang tatay niya."
"And don't bother explain your side coz' it wouldn't change a thing. Ang pinaka
magagawa mo na lang ay layuan ako. Nakakapagod ng pumunta sa police station par
a humingi ng restraining order."
I already lost count kung ilang beses na akong nagrequest ng TRO. Lagi kasing n
ali lift dahil sa tatay niya. Iba na talaga pag madaming connections.
Pumunta na ako sa cafeteria. I will meet my girls there namelyKim Miranda and N
of Salvador. I'm pretty aware about there reputation. Btches. Most people would
call them, rather us. But little do they know that behind those "btches" are the
guys who broke their heart and made them feel that way.
Sabi ng mom ko, kung ano ang kaibigan
that. Like Kim and Nof, someone made
past kaya alam namin yung pakiramdam
nila ako sa bago kong buhay. Aral sa
bullying sa hapon.

n
e
a
n

ko, ganun din ako. And i solely believe i


me feel like a btch too. We share the sam
ng mawalan. maiwanan. masaktan. Pinakilal
umaga, bar hopping sa gabi. Not to mentio

Funny to think na galit na galit ako sa babaeng yun pero everytime na tumitingi
n ako sa salamin, nakikita ko yung sarili niya sa'kin. Heartless. Pathetic. Whor
e. Slut. Btch. Nung umalis yata siya eh nilipat niya lahat ng traits niya sa'kin
.
"Btch!" What a nice endearment, right? They call me btch and I don't really ca
re. What's the point of denying kung alam naman ng lahat ng estudyante dito sa S
t. Claire's na i screw someone behind my boyfriend.. rather ex-boyfriend's back?
"So?" Sabi ni Kim with matching taas ng kilay. Tss. I'm the queen btch. No one
dare mess with me. Kung di ko lang 'to tinuturing na kaibigan.
"Republiq tayo? Namimiss ko na yung dj dun eh." Spell hot? Yung dj sa republiq.
Half Filipino, half British= totally my target. I've been messing with him sinc
e last week pero hindi pa rin niya ako pinapansin. Gahd. Sa ganda at sexy kong '
to hindi pa rin niya ako pinapansin. I wonder kung may mali sa mata niya? Hahaha
.
"Sure! Namimiss ko na din si Margarita, si Scotch, si Rhum, si Tequilla at yung
mga hot guys." This is so Kim Miranda. Kung btch ako, siya whore. Galing kasing
America kaya liberated. Minsan nga kinukwentuhan niya kami ni Nof tungkol sa es
capades niya. Geez. Hindi ko maimagine yung mga lumalabas sa bibig niya.
"How 'bout you, Nof? Sama ka mamaya?"
"Pass muna 'ko. I have something to do. Sorry, DK. I'll make it up to you." Her
e she goes again. From the outside, she looks cold and distant, pero pag nakilal
a mo si Nof, she's fragile. Feeling ko ang sama sama ko pag kasama ko siya. Haha
. Hindi naman kasi siya "btch" katulad ng iniisip ng mga tao sa kanya eh, sadyan
g mahal niya lang talaga yung lalaki kaya may nagawa siyang masama. And i couldn
't blame her, love makes someone stupid. I should know.
"You owe me uhm... One day with your credit card." She's filthy rich naman eh.
She wouldn't mind. Haha
"Fine. One day lang ha? Ihahanda ko na yung excuse ko kay Dad. Haha." See? She'
s very nice. Actually mabait naman talaga sila eh, hindi lang makita ni Sara. La
gi niyang sinasabi na bad influence daw sila sa'kin. Pero sa tingin ko it's the
other way around. Ako yata ang nagb- b.i. sa kanila eh. Haha.
"See you around, btches. Uwi na ko sa pad ko. 7 p.m. ha, Kim? 7, hindi 8 o 9?"
Kahit laking U.S., na adopt niya yung Filipino-time trait. Tss.
I went to the parking lot to get my beloved porsche. This is my 2nd baby. Yung
una yung mercedes-benz na hindi ko na ginagamit because of-- whatever. Nagpalit
na din ako ng condo. Well, yan ang advantage pag mayaman ang parents mo, you can
get everything you ask for.
I changed my clothes and oh boy, the party is so on!

2nd Chapter

Disc Jockey || Fianc

Bump and Grind

This is life

"Btch, puntahan ko na yung target ko ha? Wish me luck." Then off i go. I didn't
bother wait for her answer coz' hello? Mapapansin pa ba niyang wala ako eh busy
siya sa *ehem* pakikipag "kiss all you want" well, according to her term, dun na
new found boy toy niya.
"Long island tea for a hot DJ." Then i flash my oh-so-famous smile. My god! Isa
ng malaking temptation sa mga babaeng katulad ko ang mga Half Filipino, half Bri
tish na lalaki.
"Thanks?"
"What? Why are you staring at me like that? Is there something wrong with giving
you a drink, darling?" I do call people names.Darling for hot guys. Btch for my
girl friends. And shithead for my fans. Oh well, i can't help it if i'm this fa
mous.
"You've been hitting on me since-- i don't know, maybe last, last week?" The Bri
tish accent. I never knew that accent can be very dangerous. Seducing. Haha
"I'm not hitting on you." Then i went closer and i stare at his blue eyes. "Do y
ou wear contacts?" Then i traced his jawline, his eyes, his nose.
"Are you seducing me?" Closer and closer and closer.
"No, i'm not. I'm just being friendly." Then i bit my lips. "On the second thoug
ht, yes, i'm seducing you." Then i went for the kill and kissed him straight on
the lips.
Passionate kiss is for boring couples so i French kissed him instead. Well, if t
here's such thing as British kiss, i'd gladly do it with him.
"You, Whore!"
"Ouch! My head!" Pakiramdam ko natanggal ang one fourth sa buhok ko. Ano bang pr
oblema ng babaeng 'to?!
I won't go down without a fight so i returned the favor. I pulled her hair and t

hen slapped her. Hard. I need to put some sense in her small brain.
"What. Is. Your. Problem?!" I calmly said. Ayokong gumawa ng eksena dito but too
late, everybody's watching us in our "live show."
"Slut! How dare you kiss MY fianc?" Ooh. Kaya naman pala hindi ako pinapansin eh,
may fianc na pala. But because i hate happy couples, i said something.
"What? Fiance? How could you be his fianc when in fact, he asked me to be his girl
awhile ago?" A little lie won't hurt, right? Kung mahal niya talaga yung lalaki
, hindi siya maniniwala sa mga sasabihin ko. Relationship needs trust in order t
o survive.
"You're lying! You whore, slut, btch, relationship wrecker! Hindi ka ba masaya s
a buhay mo kaya wala kang magawa kundi manira ng buhay ng may buhay? Ano? Iniwan
ka ba ng boyfriend mo kaya gusto mong gumanti sa iba?"
That's it. She went too far. I slapped her so hard that my hand marked red on he
r skin. Serves her right. I'm not fond of cat fights but this girl really needs
to learn her lesson.

I pulled her hair too hard that all she could do is shout.

"You, as hole! Stop hitting my hair!"

We stumbled on the floor while killing each other. Gahd, no wonder i'll have bru
ises after this nonsense fight.

"Dana, my God!" Sara appeared out of nowhere. Sinundan niya ba ako? How thoughtf
ul of my bestfriend. Kahit na hindi na kami ganung ka-close, i still consider he
r as my ultimate bestfriend. No one could ever take her place in my life.
"Ikaw, babae ka, ano bang problema mo?" Uh-uh. Here comes Sara the nagger. I pit
y this woman. Haha.
"You're seriously asking what my problem is?" Then she laughed. Is she mental?
"Wag mo kong English-in ha! Baka gusto mong kasuhan kita ng assault that lead to
grave physicalinjury?" Kailan pa siya naging concern about laws? And may ganun
bang law?

"I'll let this one pass, but i'm telling you, layuan mo ang fiance ko kung ayaw
mong balikan kita!"
Then i smirked, "Ooh, i'm scared! Hahaha."
"Fck you!"

"You have hots for me? Sorry but i don't do girls." Then she dragged her "fiance
." Poor her, ni hindi man lang siya pinagtanggol ng fiance niya. If I were her,
i'll think twice before marrying him.
"Tara na. Hahatid ka na namin ni Dave sa pad mo." Then she dragged me. Why are p
eoplenowadays so fond of dragging people?

"Seriously, kaya kong maglakad, Sara. So get your hands off of me." Then she rem
oved her hands. Aah, i can already feel the bruises. I need to buy long-sleeved
outfits.
"Right. Ano ba ang pumasok sa isip mo at nakipag away ka? Do you really need to
stoop this low to the point na mang-aagaw ka ng fiance ng may fiance?"
"Alam mo, i was about to say thanks for saving me." Then i laughed. "But i won't
bother anymore. Ni hindi mo man lang ako tinanong kung ano yung nangyari. You d
on't even trust me. Am i not that trustworthy?"

A tear fell from my eye. I start reminiscing the scenario that happened a year a
go. No one bother hear my explanation, no one cares about my side. It felt like
no one is trusting me. It made me feel worthless.

"I'm sorry. Nag aalala lang naman kasi ako sa'yo. Hindi na kita kilala. Hindi na
ikaw yung Dana na bestfriend ko.."

"Right. Kung hindi mo na ako kilala, why bother help me? Let's just put it this
way, kalimutan mo na lang na magkakilala tayo. Wala namang nangyayari eh, lagi l
ang tayong nag aaway. I think we're better-off as stranger to one another."

"'Yan ba ang gusto mo?" I nodded. "Well then, thanks for being my friend. It's f
un while it lasted." Then she hugged me. "Good bye, Dana."

I don't know but the moment she left, i started crying..

3rd Chapter

"I shouldn't have done that!"


Here I am, alone. Again. I'm used to being alone since the day he left me. True
enough, lagi akong binibisita ni Sara dati to check if i'm still breathing or no
t pero now, i feel forsaken. Masakit mawalan ng lalaki, pero mas masakit mawalan
ng kaibigan..
You'll never know the importance of someone not until you know how it feels like
not having him at all in your life. Too cliche but fckn' true. Ngayon lang nags
i sink in sa'kin yung ginawa ko kagabi. Too late para sabihin kong, "joke lang,
wag mong seryosohin." I'm not Dana, well, i used to be her. Carefree and innocen
t. I'm now DK and i can't afford to take back everything i said and say sorry. P
ride na lang ang natitira sa'kin. They already stole my dignity and virginity, i
can't afford to lose my pride. Not now.
Nof Btch calling..
"Hey. Where are you?"
"I'll ditch. Not feeling well." My eyes are puffy and my voice is hoarse, now te
ll me, should i go to school and let people see me like this?
"But i'm afarid that you can't. The class cards will be distributed later and yo
u should go here check it out." Fudge. How could I forget about that?
"Can't you just like get it for me? I'm not really feeling well today, btch."
"It's mandatory that the owner should be the one to get the card, remember?" Stu
pid rules. Now i have to go to that school. Life sucks.
"Fine. I'll be there. Wait for me, aright?" Then I threw my clothes on. Since th
en, i've been wearing my birthday suite when i'm sleeping. So, nobody should eve
r see me while i'm asleep. Well, if you know what I mean. Haha

After 30 mins., i finally arrive. As i get out of my car, as usual, students are
staring at me. Don't they know that staring is rude? Well, staring at me won't
make them pretty. At all.
"At long last, the queen btch is here." Sarcastic, huh?

"Don't act as if i made you wait for thousands of years, btch."


"Well, whatever to both of you. We better doze off, y'know?"

After that, we went and get our class cards. And lucky me, i got an average of 1
.75. Not bad, huh?
"What's your grade, Kim Miranda?" I'm pretty sure she failed this semester. Agai
n. Haha. She's always flunking her class. No wonder she'll fail.
"Fine. Go and brag about your grades, Ms. Dean's Lister." Bitter? Haha. "Before
i forgot, what's with your puffy eyes and hoarse voice? Don't tell me something
happened last night?" Uh-oh. Do i really need to answer that question? Of course
. I won't give them the chance to conclude that i cried the whole night.
"I was up all night and i was talking to--" To whom? Think. Think.
"To?" I was about to answer but Jamie appeared.
"Look who's here. Jamie Henares, my little girl."
"What do you want from me, DK?!" If you're asking who she is, well, she's one of
my favorite girls.
"I don't want anything from you, sweetheart. I just want to say i'll miss you. S
ummer vacation is finally on. If you miss me or anything, i'm just a text away,
aright?"
"I won't miss you. Ever." Pretty much like her sister, huh?
"Aah, my little Jamie's being a rebel."
"Seriously, why do you hate me this much? I've done nothing to you!" You've done
nothing but you're sister ruined my life!
"Wanna know why?" I went closer to her and grab her face
"Ouch! Let go of my face, you skunk!" I laughed. They're really siblings, they l
ike to call me names.
"I hate you because you are her sister. Simple as that." I hate her. I hate her
guts. I hate her family. I hate everything about her!
"But i'm not her! She'd done nothing with you! And you already ruined my life! R
ick broke up with me. You ruined my image. Nobody dares talk to me. And my paren
ts hate me. All because of you! Now, aren't you contented?" I never thought she
memorize all of the things i've done to her. Smart kid.
"Well, i'm contented. For now. See you next sem, little Jamie. Ate DK will miss
you. Take care, aright?" Then i kissed her forehead and let her go.
"When will you ever get tired of harrassing her?" Nof is kind-hearted. And i'm s
tone-hearted. Well, whatever.
"Don't ever get tired, btch! Making fun of her and humiliating her is pure fun!
Her reaction is priceless!" Yeah, right. Her teary-eyed face everytime we play p
ranks on her is really priceless. Haha.

"Aren't you concerned about her? She might get psychological trauma because of u
s.."
"Well, as far as i'm concerned, she's still alive and kicking. Nothing's wrong w
ith her so let's drop this topic and i think i should go."
"Yeah. Bye. See you around." Then i went to my mother. She told me that she's go
ing to discuss something with me. Wonder what's that all about?

"Mom, what's with the fuss?" I asked her with my face talking like i'm-fckin'-bo
red.
"Drop the tone, honey. I'm your mom, remember?" Yeah, right. She's my mom for al
l I care.
"You are my mom. Did i ever forget that?"
"It feels like your not my baby Dana when you're speaking like that. You know, y
our tone and accent's kind of btchy?" I rolled my eyes at her. Is she really my
mom? She's freakin' weird.
"Fine. I'll refrain from speaking in my btchy tone. Happy?" Then she nodded and
smiled a big smile. When i say big, it is. She's crazy, man.
"Before i forgot, may i see your class card, honey?" I immediately give my class
card. With a grade of 1.75, i shouldn't be ashamed, right? Haha. I know i'm con
ceited. It can't be helped.
"What's the verdict? Do i get to have DSLR? New car? iPad? Or what? A trip to Eu
rope would do." I said that with a big smile on my face. I worked hard for it, i
deserve a prize. Haha.
"Nah, you don't need any of those material things. I'm giving you something more
essential.."
"Spill it, mom. I don't like surprises."
"You'll be working here for summer. Isn't that wonderful?" She said what? Me? Wo
rking? Here? Summer?
"You're joking, right? You can't be serious!" How about beach? And partying all
night? Summer fling? Hot guys? This can't be happening!
"I'm dead serious, honey. You're a Fashion Designing student, afterall. You shou
ld be happy that i'm giving you the chance to have a taste of how it's like to b
e a designer." I know that but.. my summer flings..

"Can't you just get someone except me to work here for summer?" Say yes! I'm sti
ll hoping with my fingers crossed behind me.
"The answer is no. You will be working here whether you like it or not and my de
cision is final. Now, go to Margo and she'll be briefing you about what you will
do starting tomorrow." The next thing i knew, she's gone and i'm here and talki
ng to Margo about my "summer job." Lucky me, right?
"...... Any questions or what?" I just smiled because honestly, i wasn't paying
attention to whatever she's saying.
"None. I should go."
Then i went to Kim's place. This is my worst day. I never had the chance to expe
rience summer...
"Hey! Missed us?"
"Shut up, btch. Why are you here, Nof?" Kim's here, well, obviously because this
is her house. I'm here because i hate my mom. So, why is Nof here?
"Shouldn't I be here? I'm just visiting her, duh? You, whacha doin' here?" Did i
ever tell you that Nof has this weird alter ego? Haha. One minute, she's soo ki
nd, the other minute, she's annoying the hell out of you. Weird friends? I know.
"Visiting her, too. Duh?"
"Whatever, DK. You never visit me unless you are annoyed. Care to share?" They k
now me too well. Well, whatever.
"I'm having a summer job. I know, it sucks, right?" I'm doing a mental counting.
At the count of five, Kim will start to laugh and tease me.
Five
Four
Three
Two
One
"Hahaha! Boo-hoo. Condolence. Condolence to you summer flings. Haha!" See? She i
s really my friend.
"Yeah. Go on and tease me, you whore."
"Cheer-up, summer job's not that bad." See? Now she's Noffie nice.
"As if."
"Where will you be working?"
"At my mom's."
"See? It's not as bad as you think. Makakapag bonding kayo ng mom mo.." Then her
face went gloomy. Her mom died when she was 7 or 8 kaya siya nagkaron ng weird
alter ego. Well, that's only my opinion.

"Wait, your mom's company will be releasing summer catalog or fashion show or wh
atever, right?" What's new about that Wedding catalog for June, Christmas for De
cember and the list goes on..
"So what?"
"Duh? Summer catalog or fashion show means you get to work with hottest studs in
town because they will be modelling or doing a photoshoot for your mom's creati
on! Nakakainggit." How come i never realize that? Stupid me.
"I never thought you actually can think!"
"I hate you!"
"See? Told you it's not as bad as you think." Again, she's right.
"Fine."
After that, we watched pretty little liars and drool over Ezra Fitz. Man, if my
Professor's as hot as him? I don't mind dropping out. Haha.
Then we finally called it a night by going home. Summer fling with hot models? N
ot bad.

"Dana, get your butt up. We've got loads of work to do!" Is she really my mother
? She's killing me, for goodness' sake! I've been working for 8 hours straight w
ith no break.
"Nagugutom na ko.." There, I finally said it. I'm no robot. I get tired and exha
usted and not to mention HUNGRY!
"But we got a deadline to meet. We will release our summer collection next week
and our magazine next, next week. We can't afford to take a break." There she go
es again. Workaholic.
"With all due respect, Mrs. President of Ferrer's House of Fashion, i suggest th
at we all take a break. A 15 mins. break wouldn't hurt, right? Come on, we're al

l tired and hungry. And after that, we can continue our work." My mom's got no f
avoritism. She doesn't give me special treatment. How was that? I'm her daughter
.. Goodness!
"Fine. 15 mins. only then go back here." Then everybody went outside to eat. Wel
l, they must thank me for saving their butts. Haha.
"Dana, wait."
"What? The time is running. I should go, you know?"
"I'm sorry if i'm being hard on you. I just want to be fair to everybody."
"Yeah, right. Professionalism. I get it." I'm not mad, okay? I'm just hungreeey.
Then i went to the nearest resto and eat. And after being loaded, i went back to
our "head quarters."
We worked for 5 hours straight until we finally packed up. I was arranging my st
uffs when my mother or should i say boss called me.
"Dana, you're not yet going." I was like what the heck? I need to sleep.
"Whaat? Are you crazy? I need to go home and take a bath and change my clothes a
nd sleep!" I'm getting hysterical. I know. But, can you blame me?
"We have a problem with the magazine.."
"So? I'm no photographer and i'm not a model so i can't help you. So, can i go h
ome now?" Sheez. Why is she being hard on me?
"I know, i know. You know Ariza Domingo?" I nodded. She's insert name here's cru
sh. Boohoo. I'm boycotting all her products. Haha. "She's supposedly the model o
f our clothing line but sadly, she's sick.."
"So? Anong paki ko?" We're not even close. Tss.
"The photographer saw you and he thinks that you can replace Ariza.." Me? Replac
ement? I never dreamt of being second best. I'm DK Ferrer.
"I'm rejecting your proposal. Can i go now?"
"Can you think about it, anak?" She's using reverse-psycology on me. She called
me anak!
"As much as i want to, but i can't. I love my life and i have no intentions of e
ntering the crazy world of modelling. I like being low-profiled." Seriously, who
on earth would love being followed by annoying paparazzi and creepy stalkers?
As we we're discussing our little problem, Mr. Sy approached us and informed me
about the benefits that i will get if i grab this opportunity. As if? I'm alread
y rich. I don't need money.
"Ms. Ferrer, this photo shoot costs P3Million pesos. You will just smile and str
ike a pose and ta-dah, instant money." Not enough. As i've said, I'm already ric
h. Money can't buy me. Teehee. "You will be famous and get to mingle with high-p
rofiled people including the hottest bachelors in town." What-the? Is he trying
to bribe me with hot bachelors? Haha. But not enough. "Not only here but also in
Asia, Europe, America...."

America..
America..
America..
He's there. The guy who hurt me. The guy that I love. Is there a chance that he
will see me in magazines if I do this photo shoot and realize that he still love
s me and he misses me and he will go back to me and say sorry for hurting me? Ev
en 0.05%?

I don't know why, I don't know how. But i just found myself doing the photoshoot

"Mom! You didn't tell me that i'm going to work with that British guy! I should'
ve said no if i knew this!" Remember the guy at the club? The one with a war fre
ak fiance? The hell on earth. He's a model and i am going to work with him.
"So what? What's the problem with Josh? He's good-looking and professional..."
"But i don't want to work with him!" I cut her off. I'm not being self centered
brat or whatever, okay? I just don't want to work with him. I feel creepy. Not t
o mention guilty.
"You will work with him whether you like it or not and it's final! Just go to Ma
rgo and have your make up. Come on."
I can't just leave here, I signed a contract, for goodness' sake! I don't wanna
be sued for bridging a contract. That would be stupid. I quote, "A nineteen year
old lady, sued by her very own mother for being unprofessional." Sounds real go
od, right?
"Ms. Ferrer, the shoot will begin in five minutes.." Okay, here it is. I need to
put on my best smile.
I stare at the mirror and said, "You should see this, Cy. You should see that i'
m doing good on my own. You should see that i'm better now. You should regret wh
at you did. You should!"
I was walking when suddenly, somebody pinned me on the wall.
"What the heck! What is your problem?!"
"You owe me bigtime. You ruined my engagement." He said that with his mouth on m

y neck. Ok-ay. My knees are wobbling. This guy is scaring me.


"What do you want?" Money? What?
"I'll tell you someday. For now, let's get working." Then he flashed his deadly
glare.
My God! What have i gotten myself into? I should have never flirted with him..
"Smile. Good. Good." Smile here. Smile there. Smile everywhere. Being a model is
n't pure fun. "Now Josh come closer and put your arms around her waist." Then he
placed his arm around my waist. We're so close. I can feel the heat of his body
. Darn it. "Now Dana, look straight into Josh's eyes." He sayin' what? "Come on,
just look at his eyes.." Fine. Inhale. Exhale. I can do this. "Look at him with
love. Imagine that you're in love with him.." As he was instructing me, i'm ima
gining that i'm staring at his eyes. That he's with me. I know it's crazy but he
's the only guy i could think of when the word love is being mentioned..
*click*
"Now, for the finale, let's have a kiss from you two."
"What? Kiss? What are we doing? This is a summer collection as far as i can reme
mber. What does a kiss have to do with this, Mr. Sy?!" Ok-ay. I know that it's p
ure blessing that i get to be kissed by this gorgeous creature but then again, i
feel creepy all over my body. It's a bit scary.
"The theme of this photo shoot is Summer Love, Dana. And what's with the fuss? I
t's just a kiss. Is it your first kiss?" Now he's changing the topic. I was the
first to complain. My goodness!
"Of course not!"
"Yeah. We already shared a kiss before, right, darling?" Does he need to brag to
everyone that he already kissed me?
"So what? A kiss is just a kiss until you do it with the one that you love." Aft
er that, i pulled him and kissed him. And after i heared the camera shots. I pus
hed him. "And obviously, i don't love you." I saw him smirked and then i left.
I went straight to my unit and sleep till morn.
I woke up after my 18 hours sleep. No wonder i feel energetic today. So i'm goin
g shopping. Tralala.
I tried calling Nof because i will get her c-card. She owe me that naman eh. But
with my bad luck these past few days, her phone can't be reached. Then i tried
calling my mom, but then again, her phone is off, too. What's with my luck? Darn
it.
So i went to FHF *Ferrer's House of Fashion* with a heavy heart. Hahaha. Natatam
ad kasi ako eh, plus naaalala ko yung kiss namin ni Josh . Grabe lang.
"Margo, where's mom?" I asked her. I stared at her face. She's pretty but she lo
oks so tired. My mom. Her boss? No wonder.
"She's inside, Ms. Dana." She's too polite and i like her, so i smiled at her. "
You look so tired, why don't you take a day-off?" Don't get me wrong. I'm still
a btch. She just look awful.

"I can't.. I need to work for my family. Mababawas sa sweldo ko pag umabsent ako
. Wag na lang.." Okay. That's it. I went inside and talked to my mom.
"Mom! I demand that Margo should have a day-off or else----- i'll kick your ass!
" What the heck? Hahaha.
"Kick my ass? The hell, Dana. She can't. We have loads of work to do."
"Lagi naman eh. Mukha na siyang zombie, can't you see? Pag namatay yun, magbabay
ad ka pa sa pamilya niya kasi na overworked sya. Ikaw din..." I'm pushing my luc
k. Say yes. Say yes.
"Fine. I'll agree to your proposal.." I'm so matalino talaga. I always get what
i want. That's me. DK Ferrer.
"But you need to replace her today.."
"You say what?"
"I said you need to replace her. Nabibingi ka na ba?"
"But---" I went here to ask for her credit card.. My shopping.. Dress. Heels. Ky
aaaaa~
"No buts. Just take it or leave it." Now i believe that she's really my mom. Lik
e mother like daughter pala talaga.
"Fine. You're a manipulative mom! No wonder you're a business woman."
"I'm proud that i am. Now go and tell Margo your good news. And start working, b
aby girl." Then she smiled.
And when i'm about to leave..
"I'm so proud of you, anak." And that line made my day.

"The hell, mom! This is the 100th page that i've been encoding, for God's love!"
I irritatingly said. My hands, specifically my fingers, are fckin' tired. Imagi
ne yourself typing those goddamned reports in size 8, Arial. You could seriously
consider suicide as an option.
"Just drop the ranting and continue your work, dear. It will do no better. Trust
me, you don't want to see me pissed-off." She hissed. She's really a pain in my
ass. Really.
"Trust me too, mom, you won't want to see me cursing you."

"Yeah?"
"I'm dead serious. I do what i say."
"Trust me, you don't want to live your life without cars, credit card, condo uni
t..." There she goes again.. "I hate you! Blackmailer!"
"Whatever. By the way, you'll be doing Josh's make up. He'll be having a photo
shoot later. Break a leg!" Then she ran-off. I was left there. Shocked. With my
mouth open. Slowly processing what my mom said. After 10 secs. i muttered, "What
the heck?!"Is Margo some kind of super woman? Encoder and make up artist in one
?!
45 mins. later ~
"Don't move, will you?" This Josh guy is bringing out the beast in me! I'm doing
his make up and he keeps on moving. The heck.
"Stop dancing!" He's banging his head and murmuring some strange words. "Can you
freeze for a moment? Just let me finish what i'm doing?" But then again, i got
no response. Good. Just good.
I puched his face
"What is your problem?!" Ikaw! Ikaw ang problema ko! I badly want to shout it ou
t but i don't want to catch attention so i just breath in and out and tell him,
"Just freeze. 10 mins. Okay?"
Thank heaven, he followed what i said. Magpapa misa na ba ako? Haha. Kidding.
After 20. mins, luckily, i finished his make up without using brutal ways. "You'
re done. Just go. Shoo away." And i shooed him away. You know? Just like when yo
u're shooing dogs away? Get my point? Oh well, nevermind.
"You're not yet done, babe.." And a sly smile formed on his oh-so-kissable lips.
"W- what are you doing?! Why are you taking off your clothes?"I'm stammering. Th
e heck. It's not my first time to see a guy naked. But there's something about h
im that makes me nervous..
"Why? You need to put foundation or oil or whatever you call that in my abs. Don
't be a coward. I know how much you want to touch my abs. Go ahead. They don't b
ite." Oh my God! Just oh my God!
"Ang kapal ng mukha mo!" Srsly. I mean it. He's reaching my boiling point. I'm u
sed to bullying people but not the other way around. He? Bullying me? Fck this s
ituation.
"What did you said?"
"Hindi ka nga pala nakakaintindi ng tagalog. Mabuti naman."He seemed clueless so
i'll take this opportunity to speak out."Gwapo ka eh. Gwapong gwapo. May abs ka
. Oo. Gusto kong hawakan. Pero tangna, ang yabang mo. Sarap mong patayin. Alam m
o yun? Pasalamat ka may British accent ka!" It feels good. Saying what's on my m
ind.

"I know i'm that handsome. No need to remind me. I told you, you can touch them
if you want, i won't budge. And i'm only 22, too young to be killed. Hahaha. And
yes, i attract many girls with my accent. Kudos with that" My mouth hanged open
. He- he can understand tagalog?! "You understand what i said?" Oh my goodness.
This can't be happening. Mother earth, swallow me now! Now!
"I don't speak tagalog but i can understand tagalog. Better luck next time. I do
n't speak French, Nihonggo etc. Maybe try cursing me in that languages." He wink
ed. "By the way, see you on Thursday, babe." Then he left.
Oh God. What's with my luck?

8th Chapter

Today is Thursday. My most awaited day of the week, or should i say dreaded?
I quote, "See you on Thursday, babe. Tss." Shoot. Josh is the primary reason why
I hate this day. Ugh!
I got up and stare at the mirror, "I'm pretty, sexy and hot. But why is that i'm
not good enough for him?" Again, i cried. I breakdown everytime i remember the
night Andy took my virginity.
I once read in a book that if your boyfriend loves you, virginity should never b
e an issue. But with what i've been through? I must say that virginity is indeed
a big issue.
Life is not a fairytale, it's a reality. The veracity of life that there are peo
ple who will love you and there are those who will hate you. It's up to you if y
ou'll let them meddle with your affairs.
I took a bath and dressed up. Margo informed me that there will be a victory par
ty later at Area06, Dave's Club. If i saw Sara there, what would i do? Sheez. Sh
ould I say, "Saraaa! Kyaaa~ I missed you!" How i wish i could say that..
Time: 9 p.m.
Place: Area06
On word to describe the party: WILD
People dancing, getting wasted, making out. A typical scene in a club.
"Hey. babe." He kissed me. Smack though. "I've been waiting for you. What took y
ou so long?"
I pushed him, "Back off. You're already drunk. I won't talk to you until you're

sober." I walked past him but he pulled me. "No, i'm not. Come, drink with me, b
abe." He dragged me. Again.
"Two Hard. One for me, and one for this hot lady." Then he winked. Ugh. Is he le
ading me on? Well, obviously, it's a yes!"Cheers! For the successful release of
the magazine!"
He finished his glass but mine is still full. "Having a change of heart? Not a p
arty girl anymore? Come on, don't be a kill joy."
"If i finish this glass, would you stop talking, kissing, harrassing and bullyin
g me? In short, would you leave me alone?!" He giggled. "Yes, my babe. But in on
e condition." I waited for his response. I was thinking of a kiss or anything si
milar to that. He's a perv afterall.
"Mix this with your drink." He showed me a tablet. "Are you doing drugs?" I aske
d him. "Of course not. It's not a drug, it's herbal." To shut him up, i did what
he asked me to do.
"That's my girl. Stay there, i'll be back after a while." He left.
Minutes passed, my vision became blurry, the world started swirling, i felt hot.
I removed my cardigan. I went down and dance with some unknown guys. I let them
touch me. I don't really care.
"Dana." Someone called me.
"Dana, si Dave 'to."
"Oh, Dave! What a small world, isn't it?"
"Dude, kunin ko na. Kaibigan ko 'to. Lasing eh." Then he dragged me. "What's wit
h dragging me? I can walk." Then i started walking. Kailan pa naging zigzag ang
daan? I asked myself.
"Come on, let me help you. Lasing ka na. Tss. Bakit ba kasi umalis si Cyriel eh,
tignan mo nangyari sa'yo. Ang bitter mo kasi.."
I pushed him.
"I'm not bitter, in fact, i'm better. Don't dare mention his name. I don't like
hearing loser's name."
"In denial. Dito ka lang ha? Tatawagin ko lang si Sara.." He's about to go but i
pulled his shirt. "Don't leave me.." I went near him and caressed his face. "Yo
u know what? Between the three of you, you're the only one i didn't get the chan
ce to kiss. Kung wala si Sara, ano kaya ang nangyari?" He avoided my gaze and re
moved my hands. "Dana, lasing ka na eh.."
"No, i'm not." I placed his arms in my waist. "How about you, hindi mo ba naiisi
p kung paano ako humalik?" I traced his jawline. Now i know why Sara is in-love
with this guy.
"No need to answer, i'll show you how." Then i kissed him. I kissed him passiona
tely but he's not responding so i stopped. I'm about to speak when i heard someo
ne say..
"Oh my God!"
I saw someone, particularly a girl, crying. I can't see her face clearly, so i c

an't recognize her.


"Sara! It's not what it looked like!"
Sa-sara? Sht.
Slap. She slapped Dave. Great. Just great. Another relationship ruined by none o
ther than DK Ferrer.
"I thought you were through playing with your games. Hindi pa pala.."
"You were wrong, i didn't---"
"Sara!" I muttered. She faced me. She's angry. I can feel it. "It's not what you
think it is.."
"Yeah? Why should i believe in you? Do i even know you?" Shoot. That hurts. "Are
we close? As far as i'm concerned, we don't know each other. So don't talk as i
f you know me, relationship-wrecker!" Okay. That's it. She hit a nerve.
"You know what? Don't talk to me as if you know me. You have no fcking idea what
the sht i've been through." I took a step forward. I'm crying. Fck this. "Relat
ionship-wrecker? Oh my God. Should i thank you for giving me a title? That's so
nice of you. Clap-clap." I wiped my tears. I took another step and leaned forwar
d and whispered in her ears, "Pasalamat ka naging kaibigan mo ko, nakakilala ka
ng mayamang boyfriend. Kung hindi, malamang kasama ka pa din ng ex mo sa kangkun
gan. Mga pulubi." Serves her right. She crossed the line.
I went out and lit a cigarrete. I only smoke at times like this.
"Mind if i join you?" Josh sat beside me. "You, skunk. You drugged me!" Then he
giggled again. "I told you, it's herbal." I punched his arm. "Fine. I drugged yo
u. But it's only mild. I don't know you're a baby." Then he laughed.
"I just had a fight with my bestfriend. Well, technically my ex-bestfriend. All
thanks to you." Sarcastic tone inserted.
"That's fine. You don't need that btch. All you need is me.."
"Yeah. Whatever."
"It's still early. Let's drink?" He stood up and motioned me to follow him. "I'l
l pass. I don't want to go in there. Bad vibes." I don't want to see Sara's face
. Ugh! I hate her!
"Let's go to another club then. Come on, it's still early. It's only 11 p.m."
"Fine." Then i went inside his car and drove to another bar. Goodness. This will
be a long night.

"Underground night club?" I read the signage on the door.


"Are you kidding me? You're bringing me in there? That place is illegal!" I know
i'm a btch but not to the point that i'm doing illegal things. My criminal reco
rd is clean, at least i can be proud of that.
"Ssh. Shut up. The real fun is in there." He dragged me in. The place is wild. M
uch wilder than Area06, i must say. "What can you say?" He smirked at me.
"Wanna hear my opinion?" He nodded. "I think you're sick. You're seriously freak
ing me out. First, you're doing drugs. Now, you're bringing me in some illegal p
laces. What's for next? You're touring me in your hide-out?"
Now he's laughing real hard. "Sorry for laughing. I can't help it. Your assumpti
ons are fcking funny." Then he laughed again. Fine. I'm overreacting. Can you bl
ame me? Of course not! "Shut up or i'll leave you?!" I'm serious. I hate the fee
ling of being laughed at. Am i a clown? The heck.
"Fine. I'm sorry. I'll stop." Then he hold my hand. I raised a brow."Hands-off."
I said. "No malice involved. If you don't want trouble, just shut your mouth an
d let me hold your hand, okay?"
I stopped talking. Maybe he's right. This place is troublesome. The people are d
oing drugs. The others are doing sex. Right, sex in a pub.
"Tada! My private room." We entered a private room on the second floor. The room
was dark and spacy and with bed! "A bed? Are you bringing prostitutes in here?"
Then he laughed. Again. Tell me, is my question that funny? "I really love how
your imagination works. It's wild. And i like it." Then he kissed me. What's new
with that?
We're kissing when his hand started slipping inside my dress,"Josh, stop!"
"What? Stop spoiling the fun." Then he kissed me again. His hand is in my bra, u
nhooking it. "I said stop!" There. He stopped. Thanks God.
"What again? Don't act as if you're an innocent Virgin Dana. You'll love what we
'll do. I swear." Then he motioned to kiss me but i slapped him.
"You know what? Yes. I am no longer a virgin but i do consider sex as a sacred t
hing. Now, if you want to get laid, go and call a prostitute. Suite yourself, a
hole." I stood up but he stopped me.
"Fine. No sex. Drinking session only. Happy?"
Then we started drinking. Unlike before, my alcohol tolerance is not as low as b
efore. I can drink five bottles and i'm still normal. I think that's the effect
of having bars as your second home. You get immuned.
"Now, for the real fun.." He took his coat and showed me a small bottle. "What's
that?"
"It's herbal." Herbal yourself. I'm not stupid. "Shut up. What kind of drug?"
"I forgot. But it's mild though. Want some?" For the sake of Sara's harsh words,
"Yeah, sure."

Then we started drinking. I lost count. While drinking, we kissed. That's normal
. I think. I mean, what's wrong with kissing? I can kiss whoever i want. It's no
t like i'm doing sex with them. Like i told Josh before, 'A kiss is just a kiss
until you do it with the one that you love.' So, no malice involve.
"I wanna go home." I said. I need to go home, i don't want to sleep in here. "Ju
st sleep here. I can't drive. I'm drunk." He said with his eyes closed.
"Fine. I'll go home alone." I stood up and got my things. I'm kinda dizzy but i
really don't want to sleep here. You'll know what i mean when you see this place
.
I went out, i can't drive so i'm waiting for a cab. I was about to go to a nearb
ly bench but my head is spinning badly. Then i passed out

"Where am i?" The first question i muttered the moment i opened my eyes. I tried
to sit down but i can't. What's the matter with me?
"Don't try to stand, Dana." I tried to sit again but, "Aargh!" He tried to help
me but, "Don't you fckin' dare touch me!"
"Sorry, i was just trying to help you."
"I don't need you. Ano ba kasi ang ginagawa mo dito? Planning to rape me again?
This time in a hospital? Great. Just fcking great, Andrei Guzman." I smirked at
him. I'm trying to sound cool but truly, my head is aching. It's killing me.
"I never did rape you, Dana. Kung makikinig ka lang sana sa paliwanag ko.."
"Shut up." I stopped him. I'm tired of hearing explanations and i'm tired of for
giving those people who hurt me. I realized that people don't deserve second cha
nces. What's the point of forgiving if there's a second chance and then they'll
do the same thing again and the cycle continues. That's pure hypocrisy.
"Go out, will you?" He's just staring at me so i tried to stand to open the door
for him. "Aaargh! Fck it! My arms!"
He helped me stand up because i fell on the floor, "Let go of me, jerk!"
"Kahit ngayon lang, kalimutan mo muna yung pride mo. Aminin mo sa sarili mo na k
ailangan mo ng tulong, hindi mo kaya ng nag iisa.."
"Pride na lang natira sa'kin. Kinuha mo na yung dignidad ko, pati ba naman pride
? Ganun ka na ba ka selfish, ha?!"
"Hindi ko naman kinuha yung dignidad mo. Ilang beses ko ba uulitin? Ilang beses

ba ako hihingi ng tawad bago mo ako patawarin? Ilang beses ba ako mag eexplain b
ago mo ako pakinggan? Sabihin mo kasi sawang sawa na ako sa pagsigaw mo sa'kin.
Nahihirapan na ako tuwing pinapaalis mo ako. At nasasaktan ako kasi alam kong ak
o yung dahilan kung bakit ka nagkakaganyan.." Then a tear fell from his eyes the
n followed by another and another. The next thing i know, he's crying.
I just stare at him and let him cry. I don't know. I can't move. I feel nothing.
I-i can't explain myself.
"Andy? Why are you crying?" My mom entered and she saw him crying and me staring
at him. Great. Now, i'm the villain in my own story. Just great.
"Nothing, auntie. I just remembered something. I better go." She kissed mom on t
he cheeks then he went outside.
"Now, what happened?" She's serious.
"I slapped him. Contented? Now tell me, why the fck am i here?"
"I can't believe it. What have you done to my daughter?" She cried. "Shut the dr
ama, mom. I won't buy it. Why am i here?"
"First, you collapsed on the roadside and broke your arm and luckily, Andy helpe
d you. Ganun ka ba magpasalamat? Sasampalin mo siya?"
"What? I collapsed? Why? When?"
"Drug overdose, it's been three days since you collapsed. Alam kong may problema
ka simula nung nagbreak kaso ni Cyriel, pinabayaan kita pero hindi ko naman ala
m na aabot ka sa ganito.."
"Drugs?"
"Drugs. Ecstasy. Overdose. It could've killed you!"
Drugs? I'm doing drugs? Since when?

Josh! Oh my God! He drugged me!


"Tell me, who are you doing drugs with?"
"I-i don't know.." Why the heck am i protecting that maniac?
"Tell the truth or i'll send you to a rehab?! I'm dead serious!"
"Then send me. I don't care. My life is a mess."
"You're grounded. No car, condo, atm, credit card, no everything!"
"Why don't you just kill me? That would be better, you know?"
"I don't believe it! You'll stay in our house or help me God, i'll disown you!"
So, it's official. Dana Kathryn Ferrer is broke. No money, no car, no lover, no
friends. Lucky me, right?

"Mom! Kinuha niyo na yung phone ko, pati ba naman telephone?!" I protested. I wa
s trying to dial Kim's number and invite them to come over our house since i am
grounded and God knows, this silence is killing me!
"What? Cold treatment? How long will it last, huh? I've been here for 1 week, mo
m! One fcking week with no one to talk to. Do you have any idea how hard it is?"
I'd seriously go insane if this set up continue.
"Do you have the least idea how hard it is for me to know that my only daughter
is doing drugs? To know that she's troubled and that she didn't think of me as a
n option to help her? Do you know, Dana? It's killing me!"
"You don't know anything. Don't speak as if you're concerned. All you cared abou
t is your business. And dad? He's not around. He's always not around. All work a
nd no play makes your daughter a bad girl. Remember that, MOM." She's speechless
. She cried. Again. Then walked out. I don't know. Everytime i speak, someone cr
ies. Am i that heartless? Is being honest a crime? I was just trying to explain
myself, but everytime i do, someone is getting hurt. Maybe lying is a better op
tion.
3 days later
I was at the kitchen, pigging out for lasagna. I want it eat it badly. I'm starv
ing for foods lately. I don't know, maybe eating is my only consolation here in
our house. No internet, no phone, no television. Eating is my only way of surviv
ing.
"Yaya! Where are you?" I was looking for my yaya because i'm going to ask her to
bake lasagna for me. I'm really pigging out, and i've been gaining weight. Damn
it.
"Dana, anak, may bisita ka." Yaya told me. I immediately went outside. Hearing t
hat i have a visitor feels so good to my ears. For the first time, someone came
over. Alleluia for that.
As i go to our living room, "What the hell are you doing here?" I raised a brow.
"Is that the proper way to greet your friend, Dana?" Mom scolded me as if i am s
ome six year old girl. Old school.
"That's fine, auntie. Okay lang po." He said. Tss. Paawa effect.
"No, Andrei. Sumosobra na yang bata na yan eh. Hindi na marunong gumalang."
"Marunong akong gumalang, sa mga taong kagalang galang nga lang. And you don't b
elong to my list.. And neither are you."I glared at Andy.

"The same goes. You, too, already lost my trust. Including my respect." She told
me as if i care? Truth be told, your mother is the first villain in your dream
life. I should know.
"I'll be going, Andrei. Talk to that lady. Try to put some sense in her crooked
mind."
"Sige po, auntie." Then she went away.
"Come with me." I stood up and led him to my room. I opened the door, "Come in a

I went near him and

I gape at his eyes and started removing my shirt but, "What do you think are you
doing?" He asked. "Getting naked?" I sarcastically told him while unhooking my
bra. "Stop it!" He shouted. "What? This is what you want, right? Sex. I'm giving
it to you. Just quit playing games with me after this."
"This is not what i want, Dana. Sex is sex. And i don't want it."
"What is it that you want then?"
"You. I want you because i love you."
"Oh shut up, i'm allergic to lies."
"I-i better get going. I'll just come over tomorrow." He stood up and covered me
with blanket. "Don't do that again, alright? I respect you." He kissed me on my
forehead. "By the way, i brought lasagna. I just thought you don't want baked m

Tell me, should i feel guilty?

"Why are you here AGAIN?!" I asked for the nth time. For the past 4 days, he's h
ere. Visiting me. Bringin foods. Yada yada. Who do he think he is? My suitor? Oh
please!
"Just visiting you. I heard that you're bored in here so i asked auntie if i cou
ld bring you outside, on my expense.." What the, what the, what the? He did that
?

"You did what?!" Ok-ay. He got me.


"I told her if i she could let you go outside even for a day.. with me."
"You know what? Your plan is great, minus the fact that you'll be my chaperone."
I'm not mean. You guys always think that i'm mean, heartless, ruthless etc. But
you know what? When you get to experience all the things i've gone through? You
'll know why the heck i'm acting like this.
"Fine. Then stay here. I'll go." He stood up.
"Fine. I'll go out with you, bastard." Then i rolled my eyes.
"Then it's a date. Our very first date." Did i hear it right? Our very first dat
e?
"You said what?"
"I said that this will be our very first date, Dana. I didn't get the chance to
ask you out before so i'm doing this now."
The heck? I can't believe that this is happening. Andrei Guzman, the guy that i
loathe, will be my first date? Jarred never asked me out on a date. That jerk. A
ndy, well, he admitted that he didn't date me before. And *insert his name here*
, well, we went to an amusement park before because it's my birthday but never s
aid that it's a date. So, technically speaking, Andy will be my first date? Oh G
od! This can't be happening!
"So? What's the verdict? We'll go or you'll stay?"
"Shut up, will you? Can't you see that i'm thinking?"
If i'll say yes, that'll make this guy happy. And i don't want that. But if i sa
y no, this day will be another fcking boring day. And i hate it.
"Fine. I'll go with you but it's not a date."
"Then stay here. I'm asking you out on a date."
"What's the matter with you? Why suddenly ask me out? Are you insane?"
"Your the first girl that i asked out on a date.. Just please say yes.."
"Liar. I'm not the first."
"But you are."
"No, i'm not."
"Yes, you are."
"Lynne?"
"We never went out for a real date. I was just 15 that time."
"Sure. Continue lying, i'll listen." Then i smiled. You know? Just smile when yo
u don't want to listen.
"But i'm not lying."

Smile. Smile. My beautiful smile.


"Fine. You're not the first girl that asked out on a date. That's what you want
to hear, right? Now, go out with me, will you?"
"Sure. The pleasure is all YOURS."
Then he drove and we hit the mall. Srsly, a mall? Oh my God! I missed going here
.
"This is a first. Thanks for bringing me here. I missed hanging here." He gave m
e something. "What's this?"
"My credit card. Just go and shop, i'll be waiting here."
"Are you serious? I might reach your credit limit, you know?"
"Sky's the limit. That card is unlimited. Thank my dad for that."
"Well then, i'll better get going. See you after an hour or two."
So i shopped till i dropped. You know this feeling? It's heaven. The person who
said that money can't buy happiness doesn't know the pleasure of shopping.
I bought dresses, tops, shorts, pairs of shoes, bags, accessories, name it, i bo
ught it. Woo. This is what i call life. No problem, just pleasure. I even bought
Galaxy Tab. Hahaha. I think i spent a hundred thousand. We'll see how his fathe
r will react.
"Grabe, buhay pa ba yung card ko?"
"Yes, i think. Hindi pa naman siya nagme melt." Then i smiled.
"Thanks to my dad, i made you smile."
"Tama na nga pambobola mo. San na ba tayo pupunta?"
"Uuwi na."
"Okay."
"Joke lang. May pupuntahan pa tayo."
"Tatawa na ba ko?"
"Joke ba yun?"
"Whatever." *insert rolling eyes here*
"Pikon naman nito. Tara na nga."
Then he drove this time to a hotel. What are we doing in a hotel? Magche check i
n kami? Oh please. Hindi pa rin siya nagbabago..
"What? Bakit ganyan kang makatingin?"
"I thought you already changed. Hindi pa pala.."
"Bakit ba? Ano na naman ang ginawa ko?"

"Bakit mo ako dinala sa hotel na 'to?"


Then he burst into laughter. As in burst. Kulang na lang magpagulong gulong siya
sa sahig para makatawa.
"What? Ano bang nakakatawa sa sinabi ko?"
"Sorry. Kasi naman, ang dumi dumi ng isip mo. Hindi naman tayo magche check in e
h, may pupuntahan lang tayo. Tss. Nasosobrahan ka na yata sa panonood ng porn mo
vies eh."
"How dare you! Hindi ako nanonood ng porn. Wag mo akong itulad sa'yo."
"Okay, sabi mo eh. Tara na nga."
"Sino ba ang pupuntahan natin? Bakit kailangan sa five star hotel pa?"
"Parents ko.."
"Ano?!"

"Are you nuts? Ipapakilala mo ako sa parents mo? You've got to be kidding, Guzma
n."
"Do i look like i'm kidding? They are curious. Lagi akong wala sa bahay, tinatan
ong nila kung ba ako nagpupunta."
"Then tell them that you're going somewhere, anywhere but not on my house!" He's
insane! Oh God! Help me.
"I told you, i already quit on lying. Why are you scared, by the way? It's not a
s if they'll eat you alive." Then he chuckled. Now i know the feeling of meeting
your future parents-in-law. Not that i'm saying that they'll be my future folks
. It's creepy. No joke.
"Shut up. I don't want to go there. You should kill me first."
"Well then, you gave me no choice." Then he went near and carry me. You know? Th
e bridal-style? Eep. This is humiliating!
"Let go of me, a hole! I'm not going in there! Aaagh!" But he didn't listen to m
e. I swear, you'll pay for this.
"Shut up, nakakahiya ka oh. Pinagtitinginan na tayo."

"The hell i care? I don't even know them."


"Then shut up for me. Baka isipin nila rapist ang anak ng may ari ng hotel na 't
o. Tss. That'll be a big news."
He's what? Oh God. Bakit ang yayaman nila? I feel--- broke?
"Ikaw na. Self-centered, egoistic brat!"
"I'm not a brat. Ikaw lang naman ang pinagsabihan ko. Ang ingay mo kasi."
"Whatever. Kung alam ko lang, binili ko sana lahat ng nakita ko kanina." Yeah. I
f i just knew.. I should've bought that diamond necklace i saw. What a pity.
"There's always a next time, don't worry. Behave. Malapit na tayo." Then he stop
ped in front of a first class restaurant. I'm not a fan of fancy restos. I prefe
r fastfoods. Ang tagal kasi ng fine dining, samantalang sa fastfoods, mabilis na
, mura pa. Talk about being practical.
"You must be Dana? The girl our son is wooing?" My eyes went like this---- O.O
"Ma!"
"Oh, see? Louie must really like you. He's blushing.." Ok-aay. I'm lost. Since w
hen did he start wooing me? Tell me!
"Shut up. Ma, Pa, this is Dana, my----"
"Friend! Yes. He is my friend. He must be fooling when he told you that he's cou
rting me. You know? Andy is a silly guy. He loves fooling around...."
"Is that so?"
"Yes, madame.."
"Sayang naman. You two look good together. Am i right, darling?"
"You're right. What's your full name, iha?" A man who looks really like Andy ask
ed me. As in. I'm pretty sure Andy will look like this when he turns 40 or so.
"Dana Kathryn Ferrer, sir."
"You're too formal. Just call me tito Alberto."
"Sounds good. Let's order." Then they asked me what i want to eat, i just told t
hem that i'll have whatever they have for me. Hoo. This is awkward.
"By the way, paano kayo nagkakilala ni Louie?" This is hard. Paano ko sasabihin
na nakilala ko ang anak nila dahil iniwan ako ng boyfriend ko dahil hindi ako ma
runong humalik? I'm sure they will kick me out of this hotel in no time.
"Schoolmates. Right, Dana?"
"Yeah. Right. We met at St. Claire's."
"Then you must be from a good family. St. Claire's is an exclusive school. What'
s the business of your family, iha?"
"My dad is the businessman while my mom is a fashion designer.."

"What line?"
"Ferrer's House of Fashion, madame."
"Oh. That's why your last name sounds familiar. I'm a fan of your mother's colle
ction, tell her that. And please do call me tita Louisa."
"I would love to tell her that, tita Louisa." Then i smiled. His folks are nice.
"Do you know Lynne, iha?"
"Mom!" Andy shouted. As usual, he's sensitive whenever Lynne is being mentioned.
I guess he never really moved on.
"What? I'm just asking. Nothing's wrong with that, am in right?"
"Of course, tita." Then i looked at Andy. "I know Lynne. Andy loves telling stor
ies about her. And from what i've noticed, he's still in love with her. Right, A
ndy?" But he didn't answer, he turned pale.
"Enough with Lynne. She's already at peace. Let's not talk about her."
"We better go. Baka hinahanap na si Dana sa kanila." Then he pulled me.
"Bye, tito and tita. Hope to see you soon."
"See you soon, iha." Then we go.
"Anong problema mo? Nag eenjoy pa ako dun eh." Silence. He didn't answer me. "Ba
kit? Natameme ka na naman. Nabanggit na naman kasi si Lynne. Tss." Then he did t
he unexpected. He kissed me.
Seconds. Minutes. I really don't know. All i know is my heart went wild. Is it l
ove or is it lust? Again, i really don't know.
"I love you, okay?" Then i pulled him and kissed him again. I have no idea. Righ
t now, i just want to kiss him..
"Don't take this wrong. I just love kissing you. No more, no less.."Then we kiss
ed again. And again. And again. Mindless of the people staring at us.

"Birthday ni Dave. Wanna come?" Andy asked me. Like duh? I'm not yet insane to c

ome with him. I perfectly understand that i'm not invited. Unwanted. Simple as t
hat.
"Wanna die?"
"Why? Para namang wala kayong pinagsamahan ni Dave."
"Don't act as if you don't know anything. He hates me. Sara hates me. They hate
me. Yet you still want me to come? Do you hate me, too?" Everybody hates me. Eve
n my mother does. I'm one heck of a lucky girl, right?
"They don't hate you. You're already forgiven, if that's why you don't want to c
ome." How come? The last time i checked, they abhor me. "You don't believe me?"
I nodded. "Sht. Ang tigas talaga ng ulo mo. Pumunta ka na kasi. Once a year lang
magbirthday yung tao, hindi ka pa pupunta. Matitiis ba ng konsensya mo 'yun?"
"My conscience was burned months ago. Sorry to say."
"I'm counting one to five. Start dressing up or i'll be the one stripping off yo
ur clothes?" He said what? Pervert! Maniac!
"Five"
"You can't be serious." He smirked.
"Four"
"Sht."
"Two"
"What the fck? Where's number three?!"
"One"
O-kay. Breathe. What should i do? Should i call 911? There's a perv beside me, f
or God's sake!
"Stop right there." I gulped. Sht. I'm feeling nuts. "I'm serious, Andy." I can
feel it, he's fcking serious. With that thought, my face went pale.
I closed my eyes and waited for the next event. I started counting inside my hea
d. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. I slowly peeked and saw Andy staring at me. His
eyes look sad?
"Why?!"
"Haay. Mission failed. Akala mo gagawin ko talaga?" I nodded. "I told you, i alr
eady changed.. I changed for you.." Then he smiled. You know? The so called pain
ful smile. "Hindi ka pa rin nagtitiwala. I respect you." Then he sighed. "Pero h
indi pa rin ako susuko. I need to earn your trust. Even if it takes a lifetime.
I will. For you." Then he went near me and kissed my forehead."I'm just a text a
way if ever you change your mind."
Processing...
Processing...
I ran immediately towards Andy and said, "Available pa ba ang offer mo?" I said
that with a big smile on my face. Sht. This is weird.

"Alam mo? Para kang kanta ni Katy Perry?"


"Like what? Ang layo ng sagot mo sa tanong ko. Tss."
Bigla siyang nag ehem-ehem, "Kasi naman, 'You change your mind, like a girl chan
ges clothes." He sang. Fck. Super natawa ako. Teary eyed na ako sa katatawa.
"Don't ever do that again. I might think that you're gay! Hahaha!"
Honestly speaking, i miss this. I miss him. I miss the old me. I miss us.

Quote A/N: Sorry! For the late update. Kasi naman, i bought my laptop with me sa
dorm tapos to my luck, naiwan ko yung broadband. I was like, 'sht.' So ayun, on
e week akong lonely. Tapos may wi-fi yung katabi kong room, sht men! May passwor
d. Ang damot Hahaha. Pero anyway, nandito na ako so everybody happy na!
Ang hirap pa lang maging college student. Lalo na pag malaki ang university na p
inapasukan mo. Para akong tanga, takbo dito, takbo dun kasi male late na ako sa
klase ko. Tapos biglang walang dadating na prof? Sht. Sarap magwala. Hahaha
Kaya mga high school students, ienjoy niyo. I swear. Gusto ko ng bumalik sa HS.
Lololols. Hindi pa masyadong madami ang populasyon ng gwapo sa U.P. puro matalin
o. Wala tuloy akong vitamins for the eyes *sabi ng baby girl ko* Wohoho

15th Chapter
Should i wear a dress? Or tee and pants? Or short shorts? Or skirt? O r what?
Fck it! I don't know what to wear. I'm considering things, y'know? If i wear sex
y outfits, Sara might think that i'm seducing Dave, which is very incest! I neve
r ever dreamt of being in a romantic relationship with him. It's -- ew. Point ta
ken,Dave is a nice guy, handsome, owns a thick wallet (with thousands of cash),
and everything you would love about a guy, but then again, I only see him as my
older brother. No more, no less. So it was really stupid of me that i kissed him
. The memory disgusts me big time.
"Fifteen minutes have already passed yet you are still undecided?" He sighed. "G
irls will always be girls."
"Shut up, Andy. I'm concentrating!" Then i examine my closet again, finding a pe
rfect dress for Dave's birthday party. "Oh sht. Ano'ng klaseng party nga pala yu
n?"
He scratched his head, "Grabe, hanap ka ng hanap ng isusuot mo, hindi mo pala al
am kung anong klaseng party 'yun."

"Is it my fault that you didn't inform me?" Roll eyes here. "Oo na, oo na. Ako n
a may kasalanan."
"So, what is it?"
"Kahit ano isuot mo, hindi naman formal yun. Besides, kahit ano naman isuot mo,
maganda ka pa rin."
"Bola mo mukha mo."
"Buti alam mo." The nerve!
"Layas nga! Magbibihis na ako. Shoo!" Then he laughed, "Ang pikon mo talaga." Th
en he dozed off.
I came up with a simple dress. Knee length, no cleavage shown. I'm so conservati
ve, well, just for this night.
"So how do i look?" I turned around.
"You look the same." Fine. I'm a bit disappointed. Just a bit, alright? Fine. I
am really disappointed. I'm just a girl who wants to hear compliments once in a
while. Is saying, "You're lovely. Or you are stunning etc." that hard?
I frowned. I frowned. I frowned. I'm disappointed, in case you don't know!
"You still look the same.. Beautiful as ever."
He caught me. "Ang cute mo talaga." He said while pinching my cheek. "Ano ba! Ma
sisira yung make up ko!"
"Ayaw mo nun? Natural blush on na kasi mapula na yung pisngi mo?" Sarcastic. Bwi
set!
"Fck you!"
"Ang bastos mo!"
"Aaargh! Don't talk to me!" He's pissing me! "As you wished."Then he acted like
he's zipping his mouth."
We went to his car and drove to the venue. Still, he's not talking.
Silence
Silence
Silence
"This silence is killing me! Just please say something!"
"Something.."
"Bakit ba ang pilosopo mo?!" He then stopped the car and parked.
"I'm just doing what you said. You said shut up, i shut up. You said say somethi
ng, i said something. Now, what the hell is you're problem?!"
"My problem is---" He kissed me. With one kiss and everything went blurry. In my
world, it's just me and him. Me and him and this kiss that we're sharing. This

bittersweet story that we had. My dark past and his broken promises.. With just
a kiss, my world collided.
"I'm sorry." He said after we kissed. "I didn't mean to kiss you.."
"Just don't say sorry for kissing me. It sucks." Actually, i hurts. Hearing some
one say he's sorry for doing something that makes your heart thump wild is just
crazy. It fcking hurts.
He then nodded and we proceeded to the venue.
The venue's not as wild as i magined it to be. It's chic? Just like gathering of
friends. Y'know? Drinking beers while sharing the story of your life. That kind
of setting.
"Ayun pala si birthday boy. Tara!" Then he pulled me. Sht. Kinakabahan ako. Alam
mo yung feeling na kakausapin ka ng crush mo? Ganun yun pakiramdam. So old scho
ol.
"Tumanda ka na naman, pare." Then nag high five sila. "Ulol. Tatanda ka din." Th
en they laughed. "Dana, long time no see."Then he smiled and hugged me and i did
n't hugged him back because i saw a set of familiar eyes watching us..
"Sara!" Andy called her. Nararamdaman kong pinagpapawisan ako. Cold sweat formin
g on my forehead. Kinakabahan talaga ako.
For like 10 seconds, i was just staring at her. Waiting for her to slap me or hu
miliate me here. I mean, i know i deserve it. At least i know. But then i was sh
ocked that insted of slapping me, she pulled me in a hug and whispered, "Na miss
kita."
Hindi ko alam pero naiyak talaga ako. Alam ko naman sa sarili ko na masakit yung
mga nasabi ko sa kanya. Pero kahit ganun, pinatawad niya pa din ako.
"Wag ka ngang umiyak. Birthday kaya 'to, hindi lamay." Then we burst into laught
er. Gahd! How i miss them!
We went to the nearest couch and ordered punch. No liquor for me. We just talked
about things. Nabalitaan pala nila yung pagd drug overdose ko, and Andy told th
em the reason why i kissed Dave.
"Aaminin ko, sobrang nainis ako nung nakita kong hinalikan mo si Dave. Gusto kit
ang sabunutan." Then she laughed. "But nung nalaman ko yung tungkol sa ginawa sa
'yo nung Josh na yun? Sa kanya ko gustong ibuhos yung frustrations ko sa'yo at s
a prof kong nagbigay ng singko sakin." Then nagtawanan ulit kami. Kwentuhan magd
amag. Catching up with each one's life. Parang wala din akong namiss.
"So, see you around?"
"Definitely." I answered with a smile. We will definitely hang out soon.

16th Chapter

"Can i ask you a question?"

"Nagtatanong ka na di ba?" I rolled my eyes. We're here in our house. As usual.


Nothing's changed. Hello? I'm still grounded.
"Meron ka siguro no? Kanina mo pa ko sinusungitan eh." Yeah, right. Ikaw ba nama
n ang ma stranded kasama ang isang lalaking nagngangalang Andy Guzman sa bahay m
o, tignan ko lang kung hindi ka ma PMS.
"Shut up. What do you care about my monthly cycle?"
"Nagtatanong lang naman. May good news pa naman ako sa'yo." That rings a bell. I
love good news. I really need good vibes. With all the issues in my life? It's
a miracle i still have my sanity intact.
"Spill."
"Naah. Pilitin mo muna ko."
"Then don't. I won't buy your pa cute effect. You're overrated."
"Hindi naman kasi ako nagpapa cute. Nac cute-an ka lang talaga sa'kin. Ang lakas
talaga ng charm ko." Then he make this weird pogi sign. Grabe. Who do he hang o
ut with lately? He has this weird things going on. Last time, he sang a line fro
m Hot n' Cold, now he's doing this pogi sign. What's for next?
"Fine. You're cute. Pang aso lang naman kasi ang cute eh. Suite yourself. Sobran
g cute mo, Andy. Ang cute cute mo. Hari ka ng ka cute-an. Walang tatalo sa pagka
cute mo." I said that while pinching his cheek. I'm just returning the favor. H
e pinched my cheeks yesterday!
"Hindi ka nakaka appreciate ng beauty."
"I do. Sobrang naa appreciate ko ang God-given beauty ko."
"Conceited."
"Naah. I'm just being honest."
"Whatever."
"Wala ka lang kasing masabi. Loser ka talaga."
"Loser nga ako.. Talunan ako basta ikaw ang pag uusapan. Ang lakas mo sa'kin eh.
Hahaha."
"Kakaiba ka din eh noh? Ikaw lang ang tumatawa sa jokes mo. Tss."
"Kill joy ka kasi. Ayaw mo pang tumawa, bahala ka, sa iba lalabas yan." Then he
rolled his eyes. The heck! Ako lang ang pwedeng gumanyan dito!
"The door is wide open. You can go now," i told him while smiling. Truth be told
, konti na lang masusura na ko talaga.
"Lifted na."
"Lifted ang alin?"
"Hindi ka na grounded.."
"Ano naman---- Ano?! Totoo ba yung sinasabi mo? No joke? I'm a free man again?"

No exageration, i'm happeey!


"Yeah. Yeah. Pasalamat ka mahal kita, kahit hindi mo ako pinilit---" I cut whate
ver he's saying because i jumped unto him and whispered, "You have no idea how h
appy i am.." And i did the unexpected, i kissed him. No hatred involved, just pu
re happiness.
xXx
"Let's party!" We're here at Area19, Quezon Ave. Gahd, i missed my night life. I
t's been what? A month since i last partied?
"Tama na nga yan, nakakailang shot ka na ah.."
"Shut up, Andy. I can manage myself. You know what? Go there and find a girl. Fl
irt and have sex. And have fun while i'm enjoying myself." He's being a kill joy
. I'm just celebrating my freedom, right?
"Fine. I'll go and have sex. Suite yourself."
xXx
Andy's Point of View
Badtrip talaga si Dana pag nalalasing, kung anu ano lumalabas sa bibig. Hindi ko
malaman kung seryoso ba o nagloloko lang. Ang labo!
"Scotch, please." Nung iniinom ko na yung order ko, napansin kong may babae pala
sa tabi ko. Grabe, lahat na ba ng babae ngayon lasinggera?
"Isa pa nga!" Sabi niya sa bartender
"Kanina pa po kayo umiinom, baka hindi na po kayo makauwi, ma'am."
"Shut up and give me my order, stupid guy!" Nagkamot lang ng ulo yung bartender
tsaka umalis. Kinausap ko naman yung babae, "You shouldn't have done that. Tao d
in yun. He deserve to be respected, you know?"
"Ano bang alam mo?"
"Madami."
"Get a life, mister."
"You should, too. Don't waste your self. Ang ganda mo pa naman." She's pretty, p
ero mas maganda pa din si Dana syempre. Fair skinned, rosy cheeks, slim, may dim
ples. A hot drunkard.
"Thanks."
"I'm Andy, by the way. You are?"
"Jamie Henares."
"Jamie Henares. Your name sounds familiar. Ano nga pala problema mo? Why go to p
lace like this?" Tinanong ko, mukhang bata pa siya eh. 17?
"May nagpadala sa'kin ng video ng boyfriend ko na may ginagawang milagro. Ang ga
ling noh? Ang saya saya ng buhay. Cheers!" Ininom niya yung beer niya. Bottoms u
p. Expert na yata to eh.

"Baka naman dati pa 'yun. Alam mo na, bago pa kayo magkakilala. Kayo kasing mga
babae nagc conclude agad, hindi man lang kayo nagtatanong."
"I've seen it with my two naked eyes. He's unfaithful! And worse, bestfriend ko
pa yung napili niyang isabay sa'kin. Ang saya ng buhay ko talaga. Unfaithful boy
friend, Whore best friend, Btch bully, Broken family, ano pa ba?"
"Think positive, wag kang aayaw." Sabay ngiti at inom ng scotch. Ang gulo nga ta
laga ng buhay niya. Wala akong magagawa kundi makinig sa problema niya.
"Jamie.." Biglang napalingon si Jamie, hindi na ko lumingon. Hindi naman ako yun
g tinatawag eh. Hehe
"What do you need?"
"What are you doing here? And when did you start drinking?"
"You don't care." Sabay talikod. Eto na ba yung boyfriend niya na loko loko?"
"I care because i am your boyfriend."
"Break na tayo."
"What?! You can't be serious, Jamie."
"But i am serious. In fact, i already have a new boyfriend. Andy, meet Tim, my a
hole ex. Tim, meet Andy, my boyfriend." Ano daw?
xXx
Dana's Point of View
Where the hell is that guy? There he is, flirting with-- Jamie? What the fck?
"....Tim, meet Andy, my boyfriend." I dropped my bottle of beer.
"Dana, i can explain---" I didn't let him redeem himself. For what? To play with
my feelings again? To let him tell me that he loves me when in fact, he belongs
to someone else. And to make it worse, he is Jamie's boyfriend! Lagi na lang in
aagaw ng magkapatid na yun lahat sa'kin.
I immediately went out of the bar and find a cab but luckily, walang dumadaan.
"Dana, wait!" Papalapit na si Andy so without thinking, i cross the road-- then
somebody pulled me and all went black.

"You'll wake up soon, won't you?" I stared at Andy's sleeping face.

He has a wound on the side of his head..


A bruise on his left cheek..
His left hand is swollen..
All because of me..
Sino ba naman ako para protektahan niya?
Sino ba naman ako para mahalin niya ng sobra-sobra?
"Dana.." My thought was interrupted by Dave, "Why?"
"Uhm--" He said while pointing something using his lips.
"Huh?"
"Siya oh. Kilala mo o baka kilala ni Andy? Hindi ko siya kilala eh.."
I turned and saw, "Jamie?" Hindi niya yata ako narinig dahil pumunta siya agad k
ay Andy. "Ano'ng nangyari kay Andy?" she asked Dave, "Hit and run."
Then she turned her eyes on me, "Jinx. Wala kang ibang alam gawin kundi manakit
ng ibang tao."
"Shut the fck up, Henares. You don't know anything."
"I know something. That you are nothing but a trashy person."
"Girls, wag na kayong mag away, gising na si Andy." Lumingon kami, true enough,
Andy's finally awake. "Puntahan ko lang sila Sara at Tita." Then he went out.
I was about to approach Andy pero naunahan ako ni Jamie. Tell me, ngayon lang na
man sila nagkakilala ni Andy, pero kung maka react siya, as if she know him very
well.
"Andy? How are you? May masakit ba?"
"Sino ka? Nasan ako?" Andy asked.
"Ako si Jamie, at nandito ka sa ospital dahil naaksidente ka.."
"What? Kailan? Bakit wala akong maalala?" Sunod-sunod na tanong ni Andy. Gusto k
ong lapitan si Andy pero hindi ko magawa. Somehow, nakokonsensya talaga ako. Ako
naman talaga. Ako ang may kasalanan. I'm the one to blame..
"Kaano-ano kita? Bakit hindi kita kilala?" I was about to say hindi talaga sila
magkakilala ni Jamie pero-"I'm your girlfriend, Andy. Can't you remember? Jamie Henares? Your girlfriend?"
She said what?!
"Ano'ng sabi mo? Kailan pa?" I asked her. "Last night, remember? You were there
when i asked him to be my boyfriend, right?"
"You, btch! Ang kapal ng mukha mo!" Then we started yelling. We curse. We scream
.

But..
"Aaaaah!" Andy started yelling as if he's in pain. I immediately called the doct
or.
Minutes after..
"How was my son, doc?" Tita asked, "He's fine. Good thing walang nadamage na org
an sa kanya. Just some cuts and minor fracture."
"Thank God. Salamat, doc." And when the doctor left, pinuntahan nila si Andy. As
king questions like this and that. Andun lang ako sa tabi, tahimik lang. Guilty
kasi ako..
After nila makausap si Andy, he said something that surprised me..
"Ma, sino siya?"

"You've got to be kidding me, Andy." I told him. Of all people,bakit ako pa ang
nakalimutan niya?
"Dave, kindly call the doctor para malaman natin kung ano ang nangyari.." then n
ilapitan ako ni Tita, "Stop crying hija, everything will be fine.."
Then the doctor came. He examined Andy, then he said, "Maybe he's suffering from
Post-traumatic amnesia."
"But why, doc? I thought minor cuts and injuries lang ang nakuha ni Andy.."
"Pwede din kasing nabagok ang ulo niya. Afterall, car accident ang kinasangkutan
niya. Anything could happen. But then, Post-traumatic amnesia is transient, mea
ning, sooner or later, maaalala niya ulit ang mga nakalimutan niya."
"Kailan ang sooner or later na yun?" I finally said. Kailan nga ba?
"Only God knows.. But for the mean time, spend some time with him, then maybe, m
apabilis ang recovery niya ng memories niyo.."
Puro maybe..
Maybe..
Maybe..
Walang kasiguraduhang maybe..
"Cheer up." Sara said then she hugged me, "Maaalala ka ni Andy. Trust him, arigh

t? Alam mo namang patay na patay sa'yo yun eh.." Then i laughed. Tama. Kailangan
kong magtiwala kay Andy. Alam kong mahal niya ako..
"But may problema ako.."
"I know. Best friends tayo, remember?" Then i hugged her again,"Bakit ba ang mal
as ng mga taong Henares ang last name sa buhay mo? Nung una si Ynna, ngayon nama
n si Jamie. Tell me, may kapatid pa ba sila?" Then i laughed. Kahit kailan talag
a, napapatawa ako ni Sara.
"Baka nga may kapatid sila. Wala na silang maaagaw sakin, na kay Ynna na si Cy,
kay Jamie, si Andy. Baka si Dave naman ang puntiryahin ng Henares the Third na y
un. Kabahan ka naaaa."
"Subukan lang nila. Subukan talaga nila." Sinasabi niya yun habang nakasingkit y
ung mata niya tapos ki-nrumple niya yung fist niya. Grabee, if i were Henares th
e Third, i'll think thrice bago ko sulutin si Dave, possessive 'tong bestfriend
ko eh. Hahaha.
"Buti naman natatawa ka na. Pag pumangit ka lalo kang hindi maaalala ni Andy."
"Lol. As if naman. Kahit pumangit ako, mas maganda pa din ako sa Jamie na yan. M
ukhang anemic. Sobrang puti."
"Ang bitter? Ganyan yung type ni Andy di ba? Mga mestizang bangus? Kabahan ka na
talaga.."
"Shoopee na nga. Umuwi ka na. Ako nang bahala dito."
"Ingatan mo si Andy sa bangus na yun. Hahaha."
"Ihawin ko pa yun eh."
"Gaga. Siya, alis na kami ni Dave. Bye." Then umalis na sila Sara at Dave. Kami
na lang ni Tita, Tito, Jamie at Andy ang nasa room.
"What's your name, hija?" Tita asked Jamie, "Jamie Henares po.." She said timidl
y. I smirked. Akala mo kung sinong mabait na tupa.
"Dana and Jamie, it would be better kung umuwi na kayong dalawa. It's been a ver
y long day. Kami na ang bahala dito kay Andy.."
"Sige po, Tita." Then i went and kissed her cheeks. "Pakisabi na lang po kay And
y i'll come back tomorrow."
"Sure, matulog ka na.."
Then umalis na kami, nung nasa lounge na kami, i pulled Jamie, "Ano ba? Stop har
assing me!"
"You have no right to complain. Ano bang gusto mong palabasin?"
"Ano bang problema mo?"
"I asked first so better answer me!"
"Why would i do so?"
"Because i said so." Then i glared at her. Konti na lang, masasabunutan ko na ta
laga 'tong bangus na 'to!

"Fine. I like Andy. I think that's enough for him to be my boyfriend, right?" Wo
w. Just plain wow. No wonder isa siyang Henares.
"You have no idea what you're talking about. Andy's mine. The moment he kissed m
e and told me he love me, he's been mine."
"He's no one's property. Hindi mo siya pag mamay-ari."
"You really want war? I'll give you war."
"Bring it on, btch." Then she left.
Dang! She's pissing me off!

"Tita, si Andy po?" I kissed her cheeks and sat on the chair, "Hija, he's not he
re."
"Nasa'n po siya? Kila Dave?" I asked. Where on earth could he be? Kakagaling lan
g niya sa aksidente, he should be resting.
"No. Kasama niya si Jamie.. Kailan pa siya naging girlfriend ni Andrei ? I mean,
as far as i remember, ikaw ang nililigawan ng anak ko. Well, at least that's wh
at he said." Then she laughed, "Ang batang iyon talaga, ginamit ka pang front. P
wede namang sabihin sa amin na girlfriend na pala niya yung bunsong anak ng gove
rnor."
I want to disagree pero anong magagawa ko? Ni hindi nga ako maalala ni Andy. Paa
no ko pa ipapaliwanag na nag iimbento lang ng kwento yung bangus na 'yun?
"Uh-eh. Sige po, tita. I better go. Ngayon nga pala ako mag eenroll. Sige po.."
After that, pumunta ako sa school. Right, ngayon ako mag eenroll. Time flies. Th
ird year college na ako.
"The btch's back." Then Kim and Nof approached me. "How's life? We haven't heard
anything from you for like a month. Anything you wanna share?"
"That little Henares."
"What about that dumb girl?" Then we sat on one of the benches. Nandito kami sa
C-Park, waiting for our turn.
"You wouldn't believe it but she stole my boyfriend.." My god, since when did An
dy became my boyfriend? Oh well.
"You say what? As in for real?"

"Do i look like kidding?" Then i rolled my eyes.


"I never thought she could do such thing.. She's interesting."Then i threw a tis
sue on her face, "That's gross!"
"Gross your face. I need to get back at her. Hindi niya ako pwedeng ganituhin. I
'm DK Ferrer and she's no one."
"Yeah right. Ano'ng gagawin natin?"
"Nof, any plans? Alam kong ikaw ang magaling sa mga revenge thingy na yan."
"Ano ba yung buong nangyari?" And then i told them the full story, minus the par
t na hindi ko talaga boyfriend si Andy.
"She's a real btch. No wonder kapatid niya talaga si Ynna." The she laughed. Kim
and Ynna were friends way back then, so she knew her very well.
"What am i gonna do? I can't afford to lose." Not now.
"Maybe you better start getting up because your boyfrie-- i mean ex-boyfriend is
coming together with his new girlfriend." She said that while stressing the wor
d ex and new. She's so nice for a friend, right?
"What the eff?" Then i stood up and went near them. "Ano'ng ginagawa niyo dito?"
I asked them. "Hi, Dana."
"Naaalala mo na ako?!"
"Not much. Medyo vague, but Jamie told me that we're best friends and ikaw ang n
aging tulay para maging kami ni Jamie. Thank you for that." Then Andy smiled.
Fck! Kailan pa kami naging best friend ni Andy and my god! Kailan pa ako naging
tulay para maging sila?!
"Pardon? Ano'ng sinabi mo?" I asked with my eyes like this--- O.O
"He said that you two are bestfriends and that you're the reason why we're toget
her. Nakuha mo? Now if you'll excuse us." She tried to get pass through me but i
pulled her hand, "Where do you think you're going?"
"Mag eenroll. Bawal ba?" She said in a sarcasic tone.
"Magkaiba kayo ng department. Ako na lang ang sasama sa kanya."
"No, i don't mind." I turned my back and signaled Nof and Kim to come, "Nof and
Kim, may pupuntahan kayo ni Jamie di ba?"Then i crossed my fingers and hoped na
maiintindihan nila yung ginagawa ko.
"Ano'ng si---" Kim said but Nof interrupted, "Yeah right. Let's go."Then they pu
lled Jamie. Good thing mabilis si Nof. Kim could be slow at times. The hell.
"Now, let's go?" I smiled at Andy. "Sure," then he shrugged his shoulders.
Pumunta kami sa IEA (Institute of Engineering and Accountancy) then inayos na na
min yung mga requirements. Graduating na nga pala si Andy, Dave at Cy.. Nag aara
l kaya siya sa America? Haay.
"Salamat, Dana. I don't know what to do kung hindi mo ako sinamahan."

"Wala yun." Then i smiled, "What are friends for, right?"


"Sigurado ka bang friends lang tayo?" I was about to go but his question strucke
d me, "Wh-what do you mean?"
"Wag mong masamain ha? Para kasing there's something special about you. Hindi ba
kita ex-girlfriend or something?"
Fck. I thought...
"Nevermind na nga lang. I'm sure na hindi naman magsisinungaling si Jamie sa aki
n eh. Why would she, right?"She would, Andy! She would because she's desperate!
"Good night, Dana. See you sa St. Claire's." Then we parted ways.
Another school year will begin. I wonder what is waiting for me..

20th Chapter

"Good morning, Andy!" I told him habang nasa bahay nila ako. He looked--- surpri
sed?
"Good morning din. Bakit ka nga pala nandito?" He asked. Mukhang gulung gulo siy
a kasi nakakunot yung noo niya. Tss. Pasalamat nga siya umeeffort pa ako na saba
yan siyang pumasok.
"Sabi kasi ni Tita, ako ang magiging tour guide mo sa school since may temporary
amnesia ka ngayon." Actually, i volunteered myself na maging tour guide ni Andy
. Hehe. Napag desisyunan ko na kasi na ipaglalaban ko 'tong unggoy na 'to. Kahit
gag0 'to, wag ka, pinapasaya ako nito. Tsaka isa pa, hindi bagay ang unggoy at
bangus. Hindi sila pwedeng magkaron ng cross-breed. Mwahaha!
"Ah-okay? Pero kasi sabay kami ni Jamie tuwing break time, okay lang ba na tatlo
tayo? I mean, okay lang naman siguro since close friends kayo di ba?" Utot mo.

Mas pipiliin ko pang makipag best friends sa aso kaysa sa bangus na 'yun.
Ang dami kong side comment sa loob ng utak ko. The hell.
"Oo naman." I smiled. Sheeet. Ang plastik mo, DK. :| Well, forever naman akong p
lastic eh. Hehe.
"So, tara na? Anong oras ba ang start ng class mo ngayon?"Tanong niya habang kin
ukuha niya yung bag ko.
"9 pa naman. Ikaw ba?"
"9 din. Eh 7 pa lang, san tayo?"
"Tambay na lang tayo sa lounge. Mag gala gala tayo, okay lang sa'yo?"
"Oo naman. Teka, kumain ka na ba ng breakfast?"
"Hindi pa nga eh. Hehe. Aayain mo ba ako?" Tapos nagpuppy eyes. I know, ang gand
a ko. Lmao.
"Aray!" Bigla niya kasing pinitik yung noo ko. "Problema mo?"
"Wag ka ngang pa cute. Di kaya bagay sa'yo." Sabi niya habang tumatawa. Loko 'to
ah. "Ulol. Alam kong hindi talaga ako cute kasi maganda ako. Aminin mo."
"Oo na, oo na. Tama nga si Jamie, ang vain mo."
"Ano?!" Oo, alam kong maganda ako pero hindi ako vain noh! Tsaka ano naman kung
sabihin kong maganda ako? Mahirap ideny ang obvious. Tss. Yung bangus talaga na
'yun!
"Wala. Tara na, ang aga aga lukot na lukot na yung mukha mo. Tss."
Tapos pumunta na kami sa dining room nila tapos kumain na kami. After nun, pumun
ta na kami sa St. Claire's at tumambay sa lounge. Hehe. Pinagtitinginan kami ng
mga tao.
"Bakit ba sila tingin ng tingin?" Tanong ni Andy. Hindi ko naman masabi na kaya
sila tingin ng tingin kasi nagtataka sila kung bakit tayo magkasama kasi alam ni
la na magkagalit tayo. As in magkagalit. Nagfile pa nga ako ng TRO eh tapos bigl
ang magkasama tayo? Hindi malabong magtaka nga sila.
"Wala yun. Sikat ka kasi kaya sila tingin ng tingin."
"Ah. Kaya pala."
Habang nagkkwentuhan kami, biglang nagring yung phone ni Andy kaya umalis siya p
ara sagutin. Pagbalik niya, "Dana, pwede bang iwan na kita dito? Nagpapasundo si
Jamie eh.."
Processing..
Processing..
Processing..
Ang kapal ng babaeng yun ah! Ako nga hindi nagpapasundo nung may something kami
dati pero siya? Oh my god!

"Ah-eh, sure." Fck. Ggo. Bwisit. Leshe. Read between the lines, Andy. I don't wa
nt you to go..
"See you later." Then he left.
Wow. Ang gandang simula ng taon.
x X x
"What's with the face?" Dumating si Kim at Nof. I was about to answer but, "Ah.
I see."
"Huh?"
"There oh. PDA at its best." Then i turned around and saw Jamie and Andy.. kissi
ng like there's no tomorrow.
"Sht." I muttered to myself.
"Who's up for clubbing? My treat."
"Are you serious? Magccut ka?"
"Don't be stupid, DK. It's not like this is the end of the world. If you really
love that guy, fight for him. Walang mangyayari kung maglalasing ka."
"I'm not stupid. You know, the moment he believed in the lie that Jamie's his gi
rlfriend, he already lost me.. So yeah, who's up?"
Right, nandito kami sa club ni Dave, my second home.
We partied. We danced. We mingled. Ang daming lalaki dito, ang daming pagpipilia
n. The choice is mine. Either i'll get bitter or i'll be better. And obviously,
bitter ako. Tangina lang.
"Dana."
"Dave! Si Sara?"
"Sa school. Ikaw? Bakit ka nandito?"
"Eh bakit ka din nandito?"
"May naiwan kasi ako sa office eh. Oh, bakit ka nandito?"
"Si Andy kasi eh.."
"Tsaka yung Jamie?" Pano niya nalaman?
"Ba't ganyan ka makatingin? Tinanong kasi ako ni tita tungkol kay Andy at Jamie,
and obviously, wala akong alam tungkol sa kanila. And besides, nakita ko sila k
anina sa lobby na nagmmake out.."
"I know.. I saw them."
"Anong pakiramdam?"
"Masakit. Ano sa tingin mo? Masaya?" Sorry. Pilosopo talaga ako pag naiinis.
"Alam mo, para kayong tanga. Ganyan din kasi yung sagot ni Andy dati nung tinano

ng ko siya dati kung ano nararamdaman niya pag nakikita niya kayo ni Cy eh."
Tameme. Hindi ako maka react. Biglang napatingin ako sa box sa counter, inabot k
o and to my surprise, "Kailan to pinadala?"
"Ah-eh, kahapon? Na delay kasi yung shipment, dapat nung birthday ko pa yan eh..
"
"Ah, okay."
"Hindi ka ba magtatanong tungkol sa kanya?"
"Why would i bother? Iniwan niya ako. Tapos na kami. Good luck na lang sa kanila
ni Ynna. Leshe. Makaalis na nga. Nakaka badtrip na araw 'to!"
I, therefore, declare war against the Henares sisters! Damn you both!
####################################
21st Chapter
####################################

After that very annoying conversation with Dave, i decided to go home. Shet nama
n. Sirang-sira na ang araw ko.

1st reason: Naghahalikan si Jamie at Andy

2nd reason: Naghahalikan si Jamie at Andy

3rd reason: Naghahalikan si Jamie at Andy

4th reason: Naghahalikan si Jamie at Andy

5th reason: Naghahalikan si Jamie at Andy

6th reason: Naghahalikan si Jamie at Andy

9th reason: Naghahalikan si Jamie at Andy

10th reason: He's still not..

Aah. Fck life. Nakakaburaot.

calling..
Sara G.

"Yo."

"Yo your face. Bwisit yang boyfriend mo."

"Eh? Ano'ng ginawa sa'yo ni Dave?"

"Basta. I'll spill later. Ano tapos ng class mo ngayon?"

"2:30. Why?"

"Punta ko sa apartment mo. Geh. Bye."

Then i hit end. Fu. 1 pm pa lang pero nagdrive na ako papunta sa apartment ni Sa
ra pero nagstop muna ako sa 7 11, bumili ng beer.

Since mayroon akong duplicate ng susi nila sa bahay, pumasok na agad ako at sini
mulan ko ng mag inom.

After finishing my first bottle, nag ring yung phone ko, "Hello?"

"DK, you wouldn't believe me...."

Hindi ko maintindihan yung sinasabi niya cos she's speaking so fast, "Wait, can
you speak slowly?"

"Fine. I was saying na after you left, i accidentally heard Nof and Dave talking

.."

"So? What's wrong with them talking?"

"Just quit commenting and let me finish, alright?"

"Psh. Fine."

"Where was i? Yeah, they were talking about their past."

"Past? As in they were together?"

"Yeah. And guess what? Si Dave yung mystery guy na dahilan kung bakit nagkaganon
si Nof. Fudge. All along, nasa St. Claire's lang din pala yun."

Buffering..

Buffering..

"Are you serious?" This can't be. FU.

"Why would i joke about things like this? And besides, i care about Nof. Know wh
at? She's here with me in my unit. Knocked up. Kanina pa iyak ng iyak. I want to
ask her why but i can't."

"Sht." I uttered under my breath.

Si Dave na boyfriend ngayon ng best friend ko na si Sara ay yung ex-boyfriend ni


Nof na hanggang ngayon hindi niya makalimutan?

Oh crap. How complicated life can be?

"Yo." Si Sara. Pinatay ko na agad yung phone.

"Oy, bakit ganyan kang makatingin? Nakakatakot ka."

"Eh, sorry. Mukha ka kasing multo eh." Nice lie.

"Ggo. Ano nga pala yung sinabi sa'yo ni Dave? Yung dahilan kung bakit ka badtrip
?"

"Ah. Kasi ano eh.. Uhm.. Eh.."

"Ah okay." Ha?

"Di mo na kailangang sabihin. Yung package ba? Tss. Akala ko ba move on ka na? E
h para package lang na galing sa kanya nagkakaganyan ka na."

"Naka move on na nga ako." Di ba?

"Fool yourself. Once and for all, sino ba talaga? Si Andy o si Cyriel?"

Ang hirap naman ng tanong mo.

"Oy? Fine. Let me put it this way, what will you choose? Your past or your prese
nt? Your past symbolizing Cyriel, and your present symbolizing Andy."

"Do i really have to choose?"

"Yes. Unless gusto mong may masaktan."

"I don't want to choose, okay?"

"Ang selfish mo."

"Hindi naman masamang maging selfish minsan."

"Ewan ko sa'yo. Eh anong gagawin mo pag bumalik si Cy? Come on, alam natin na so
oner or later, babalik siya. We don't know the exact time, but it's inevitable.
He'll come back. And when that time comes, what will you do?"

Oo nga noh..

"I'll just cross the bridge when i get there.. Well, if ever i will get there. A
fterall, what assurance do we have na babalik nga siya? Nandun ang family niya,
ano pa ba ang babalikan niya dito?"

"Hmm. Bahala ka, basta pag isipan mo kung sino talaga ang gusto mo, okay?"

"Yeah."

"By the way, kalat na sa campus na si Andy at Jamie ah. Guess what? Instant cele
brity na siya ah. I guess she's loving the spotlight." Psh.

"Let her enjoy that. Sooner or later, Andy will come around."

"Naks naman. Sure na sure ka ah. Hahaha."

"Of course. Sabi ng doctor, babalik din ang memory ni Andy. And when that time c
omes, tapos na din ang panaginip ng Henares na 'yan."

"Pero pano pag nagkagusto si Andy sa Jamie na yan?"

"..."

"Come on, hindi malabong mangyari, right? Ano'ng gagawin mo pag nangyari yun? Do
n't tell me you'll cross the bridge when you get there na naman? I'm telling you
, pag nangyari 'yun, wala ka ng babalikan."

"Fine! Ano ba ang gusto mong gawin ko? Pumunta sa kanya at sabihin na ako yung m
ahal niya? Ganun?"

"Oo. Ganun nga."

"Cut it. Hinding hindi ko gagawin yan."

"Bakit? Kasi pathetic pakinggan? Bakit? Kasi ikaw si DK Ferrer? The ever famous
DK Ferrer. Once and for all, mag effort ka naman."

ASDFGHJKL!!! Naiinis na ako!

"Okay, fine. I'll try."

"Don't try, do it."

"I'll try."

"Psh. Bahala ka."

I suddenly remembered the issue about Dave and Nof.

"Sara.."

"Yep?"

"Kilala mo ba mga ex ni Dave?"

"Huh? Ang random naman ng tanong mo."

"Kanina pa love life ko pinag uusapan natin eh, sa'yo naman." Nice lie ^__^

"Uhm, alam ko nakaka 3 na siya. Yung 2 nasa abroad na, tapos yung isa, nandito p
a sa Pilipinas. Bakit mo natanong?" Sht. Si Nof yung nandito pa sa Pilipinas. Cr
ap.

"Wala lang. Masamang magtanong?.. Yung ex niya na nandito sa Pilipinas, nakwento


niya sa'yo?"

"Hindi eh. Teka, bakit ba interesado ka dun? Don't tell me, may gusto ka na sa b
oyfriend ko?" Then binato niya ako ng unan.

"Luka-luka. Asa ka naman. Ang incest nun, noh!"

"Eh bakit ka nga tanong ng tanong."

"Eh basta, gusto ko lang maging chismosa minsan. ^___^ Bibigyan kita ng situatio
n ha? Kunyari, biglang nagpakita ulit yung ex ni Dave tapos nakikipagbalikan, an
ong gagawin mo?"

Biglang tumaas yung kilay niya, "Eh bakit ako yung tinatanong mo? Ako ba may ex
dun sa babaeng yun?"

Bwisit. Ang pilosopo ng babaeng 'to =_=

"Ang gagawin ko.." bigla siyang nagseryoso, "Bahala siya, kung san siya masaya,
bahala siya sa buhay niya."

Tapos, nakatulog na siya, kanina pa kasi inom ng inom.

Note to self: Ayusin ang issue with Andy. Tanungin si Nof. Tanungin si Dave. Pas
langin si Jamie.

22nd Chapter

"What the eff?" The first phrase that i uttered. Wanna know why? Mayroon lang na
mang amusement park sa loob ng campus. What the eff talaga di ba? I hate amuseme
nt parks.

"Eh? Earth to Dana? Sem-opener kaya 'to!" Fudge. Oo nga pala. Yearly, mayroong s
em-opener. Last year, free concert. Sana concert na lang ulit or anything, wag l
ang amusement parks. It brings back memories. FU.

"Tss. Magccut na lang ako."

"Ang KJ mo. Tara na."

"San mo ba ko dadalhin?"

"Basta." Tapos biglang may tinawag siyang lalaki, then, "Sht. Ano ba?"

"Ssh. Shut it, aright? Masaya 'to. Promise." Then she smiled. A sly smile.

As of the moment, dinadala ako ngayon ng isang lalaking hindi ko kilala sa isang
lugar na hindi ko din alam. I know, i am one clueless person.

"Hey, san mo ba ko dadalin?"

No use. Hindi ako pinansin. Bwisit.

After quite some time, "Marriage booth?!" The heck? Eto ba ang plano ni Sara?!

Pumasok kami sa loob, "Oh sht." Nandun din si Andy. Si Sara, Dave, Nof, at Kim.
Wow. Kumpleto ang friends ko.

"Father, simulan na ang kasal." Sara said.

"What's the matter with you?!"

"Shut up. Mahiya ka nga sa groom mo, eskandalosang bride." Tapos biglang natawa
si Andy. "Tinatawa-tawa mo?"

"Wala. Ano? Let's get married na?" Then he smiled. Oh geez. Bakit ang gwapo niya
? =_=

"Nasan na yung girlfriend mo? Bakit hindi ka dun magpakasal?" Well, nagtatanong
lang. Pero deep inside me, ang saya saya. Alleluia.

"Hindi ko din alam eh. Sabi ni Sara, alam naman daw ni Jamie 'to. Game lang daw,
" then tinignan ko si Sara tapos nag wink siya, gaga talaga yun, "So, ano? Shall
we?"

"Fine. I'll marry you." Then nagsigawan yung mga bwisit kong kaibigan. Mga bwisi
t. =_=

Since fake marriage lang naman 'to, sandali lang. Konting vows lang, then, "You
may now kiss the bride."

Buffering..

Buffering..

"Eh?!"

"Kiss. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss." Sabi nung mga barkada ko. Eep. Seryoso ba sila?

"Andy, wag na. Baka magalit pa si Jamie." Liar.

"Ah, eh, ano---" Hindi na niya tinuloy yung sinasabi niya kasi hinalikan na niya
agad ako.

It's no passionate nor french kiss.

Just a kiss.

But it rocked my world.

"Ayiiee." Then he said, "I love you...

bestfriend." /wrist

FU. Ano'ng sabi ko sa'yo, Dana? Wag mag expect, hindi ba? Ano? Disappointed ka n
a naman?

"Oy. Ano? Reception na?" Sabi ni Sara.

"Shut up." Then naalala ko, nandito nga din pala sila Kim at Nof.

Wait. Nof. Sara. Dave. Oh fck.

Kaya pala hindi nagsasalita si Dave at Nof. How naive of me.

"Uhm. Sara and Dave, si Nof and Kim, classmates ko sa BAFD. Nof and Kim, si Dave
and Sara, close friends ko." Then nagshake hands sila. Geez. Sana hindi mapansi
n ni Sara yung tension. =_=

"Nice meeting you. Sara Gomez, and this is my boyfriend, Dave Cruz ^___^" Then b
iglang namutla si Nof, "Kim Miranda, and she's Nof Salvador. Nice meeting you, t
oo. Sorry pero alis na kami. See you around." Buti na lang nakahalata si Kim. Sh
eez. Kinabahan din ako dun ah.

"Cool friends, huh?" Sabi ni Sara.

"Yep. Ikaw lang naman kasi eh, jinudge mo agad sila."

"Sorry naman. Pero bakit ganun yung si Nof? Ang weird niyang makatingin?"

"Tss. OA ka lang."

"Hindi kaya, grabe siyang makatingin talaga. If looks could kill, patay na ko."

"Bawasan mo na nga yung panonood mo ng koreanovela, yang imagination mo tuloy, l


umalawak. Dave, umalis na nga kayo niyang paranoid mong girlfriend." Thank me,
Dave. I'm saving you butt. Tss.

"Sige. See you around. Pare, ikaw na bahala kay Dana." Then they left.

Biglang lumapit sa'kin si Andy, "So, Mrs. Guzman, ano'ng gagawin natin sa honeym
oon natin?" He jokingly said.

"Honeymoon your ass. Masaya ka naman."

"Tss. KJ. Bilis na, anong gagawin natin? My treat."

"Kain muna tayo, gutom na ko eh."

Then pumunta kami sa isang booth dun. Cafe siya actually, tapos naka cosplay yun
g mga waiters. Ang cute lang eh ^___^.

"Nasan na si Jamie?" I suddely asked. Don't get me wrong, masaya ako na wala siy
a pero nagtataka lang ako kung bakit wala siya.

"Ewan." Then he shrugged his shoulders. Tumayo siya tapos hinatak ako, "Don't th
ink about her, aright? For today, i'm all yours." For today, how about tomorrow?
And the other days? Tss. feeling ko talaga kabit ako. =_=

Sumakay kami ni Andy sa mga rides. Dang. Nakakahilo. Akala mo naman ngayon lang
nakapunta ng amusement park 'tong lalaking kasama ko. High na high eh. Pumunta d
in kami sa photo booth.

"1 pose."

"Eh? Bakit isa lang?"

"Isa lang naman yung gusto kong pose sa picture eh." Magsasalita sana ako pero,
he cupped my chin, and kissed me on the lips.

He went out to get the picture but i was still there, with my mouth hanging open
.

"Tara na?" Then he smiled. Hinatak na lang niya ako.

Hindi pa din ako nakaka recover.

Hinalikan niya ako.

Hinalikan niya ako?

Oh?!

"Hoy! Bakit mo ako hinalikan?!" Hinatak ko siya, "Wag mo ng isipin yun. Isipin m
o na lang, freebie yun." The he smiled.

Teka lang, parang familiar 'tong line na 'to sa'kin ah?

Flashback..

Tss. Bakit mo ako hinalikan? Hindi ko pa naman napipirmahan yung contract.

Yeah, i know.

Alam mo naman pala eh. Bakit mo pa ko hinalikan?

Gusto kitang halikan with my own will and not because of the contract.

You like me?

Hahaha. Don't think much. Isipin mo na lang, freebie yun.

Bwisit. Aaagh. Damn those memories. DK, stop reminiscing, okay? Walang mabuting
maidudulot 'yan.

Then pumunta na kami sa Wheel of Fate. Tss. Ang corny lang nung pangalan eh. FU.

"Sakay tayo?" Sabi biya sabay hila. Tell me, tinatanong niya ba talaga ako? As i
f naman may choice pa ako eh bigla na lang niya akong hinila. The eff. =_=

Bumili siya ng dalawang ticket tapos sumakay na kami, hinintay lang naming mapun
o yung ferris wheel tapos umandar na, sakto naman na nahinto kami sa tuktok. Tal
k about coincidence. Tss.

"Wheel of Fate. Tingin mo dito talaga nakadepende ang kapalaran natin?" Bigla ni
yang tanong.

"Ang random mo naman." Sabi ko, "I believe that our decisions shape our future,
and destiny only takes place when we don't know what to choose."

Huminga siya ng malalim, "Sabagay, may point ka. Eh maiba tayo tutal nasa wheel
of fate tayo, ikaw? May gusto ka bang sabihin sa'kin?" Tapos tumingin siya ng m
alalim, tinitigan niya ako for about 10 seconds, "Wa-wala, ano naman sasabihin k
o sa'yo?" Sabi ko ng nauutal. Fudge. Feeling ko high school student ako na first
time makausap ang crush niya =_=

"Sigurado ka?"

"Oo naman. Teka, ano ba ang dapat kong sabihin?"

Tumingin siya sa labas, "Ayan na pala, bababa na tayo. Sige, pupuntahan ko na si


Jamie. See you around." Tapos umalis na siya.

Problema nun? Sabi niya, "For today, I'm all yours." Bwisit talaga yun. Paasa. B
V.

Jamie's Point of View

"Hello? Andy? Ngayon na? Sure. I'll be there in 15 mins." Then i hanged up.

First of all, i'm Jamie Henares. And don't judge me because you don't know what
the hell i've been through.

"Andy." Then i went near him and kissed him.

"Nakakaalala na ko." He said. Oh my God. Why now? Kung kailan nagugustuhan na ki


ta..

"S-so, alam mo na?"

"Yeah. But i'm willing to continue our fake relationship."

"But why?"

"Tinanong ko na si Dana kanina, i gave her the chance na sabihin sa'kin kung ano
ba talaga kami. Kung ano ba talaga ako sa buhay niya, but hell, hindi niya sina
bi." Then i stared into his eyes, and i see pain. She's one lucky btch. Andy rea
lly loves her.

"I'm willing to compromise. Let's continue this relationship." He said.

"Don't you think you're being selfish? Paano pag na in love ako sa'yo? Anong man
gyayari sa'kin?!" I said, afterall, i'm starting to like him. Who wouldn't? Andy
is an ideal guy, if not perfect.

"We'll see." Then he went near me and hugged me. "Be my girlfriend, Jamie. Namim
iss ko na yung feeling ng may nag aalaga sa'kin, yung may nagmamahal.."

"I will, Andy. I will love you and take care of you." Then i hugged him back, "T
hanks for letting me enter you life.."

DK, i'm sorry but you already lost your chance. I'm going to make sure that Andy
will be mine.

"Are you fcking serious?"

"Yaah. Hindi nga din kami makapaniwala eh. And here's the catch, hindi lang sila
basta nagdate, Andy actually treated her as if she's his real girfriend. Though
hindi sila nag PDA or anything."

I just want to scream. Bakit ba? Ano ba kasi talaga ang kasalanan ko? Bakit hind
i ako sumaya saya?

"Maybe you're just hallucinating or something? Come on, Sara! You can't be serio
us! Hindi pwedeng ma in-love si Andy kay Jamie.. He just can't.."

"Tigilan mo yung pag iyak. I won't tolerate you again, Dana. This is reality. It
's either you have him or you lose him. And you chose to lose him."

I didn't..

I don't..

And i won't..

"Hi-hindi totoo yan! You know that i care about Andy! Ayokong mawala siya!"

"Yeah, you care about him pero mas may pakielam ka jan sa pride mo!"

"I didn't.."

"What? You didn't intend to lose him? Bullsht, Dana! Sa lahat ng nangyayari sa b
uhay mo, puro ibang tao ang sinisisi mo. For once, be responsible! You lost Andy
dahil ginusto mo. Lahat na ng chance binigay ni Andy sa'yo para lang sabihin mo
na mahal mo siya, pero anong ginawa mo? You just messed those chances. Ngayon,
live with the consequences."

"But--"

"Sht naman, Dana! Hindi lang ikaw ang may karapatang sumaya, may karapatan ding
sumaya si Andy. At kung si Jamie yun, wala kang magagawa, pinili mo yan eh. At h
anggang hindi mo alam kung ano ba talaga ang gusto mo, tigilan mo si Andy. Maawa
ka, nahihirapan din yung tao."

"May amnesia lang siya.. He'll come around, i know. He'll come around.."

"Sige lang, ireason-out mo lang ang pagiging duwag mo."

"Tangina lang, Sara! Nahihirapan ako! Spare me from all your words of wisdom!"

"Tangina mo din, Dana! I won't spare you cos' i care for you! Sisigawan kita han
gga't magising ka sa kagaguhang ginagawa mo!"

"Ggo na kung ggo pero hindi ko talaga kaya. I want him all for myself!" Ako lang
, walang kaagaw. Ganun ba talaga kahirap yun?

"Can't you get the whole point? Ganyan ka na ba katanga? You want him all for yo
urself? Then good kung yun lang, but the point is, hindi lang siya ang gusto mo!
May iba ka pang gusto! Gusto mo pa din si Cyriel!"

"Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!" I placed my hands on my ears. Ayokong marinig yung
sinasabi niya.

"Ano? Iiyak ka na naman? Sige lang, iyak lang! Know what? Minsan iniisip ko na k

aya napunta si Andy at Cyriel kay Jamie at Ynna kasi at least, alam nila Ynna at
Jamie ang gusto nila. At least sila, isang lalaki lang ang gusto nila. Eh ikaw?
Dalawa ang gusto mo. Sabi nga nila, you can't have the best of both worlds. Nga
yon, ano? Wala na. Wala ka ng pipiliin. You ran out of choices. Don't hate me, s
inasabi ko lang to dahil gusto kong gumising ka na."

"Just go. I want to be alone.."

"Mag isip ka, Dana. And i need to say something to you, ayaw ko sanang sabihin k
asi si Andy dapat ang magsabi na'to pero sasabihin ko na, it's been five days si
nce nakakaalala si Andy.."

"Ano?!"

"Yeah. Sige, alis na ko. Mag isip ka nga. Sinisira mo buhay mo."

Nakakaalala na si Andy? Five days ago? Si Jamie? Don't tell me..

Gusto na niya talaga si Jamie?

Oh God. Please don't let him fall for her.

----------------------

Andy's Point of View

"Andy? Andy?"

"Ha?" Kasama ko si Jamie ngayon sa caf, kumakain lang. "May sinasabi ka ba?"

"I've been talking for like forever. Hindi ka man lang nakikinig."

"Sorry. Spaced out lang, ano nga ulit yung sinasabi mo?" Then i went near her an
d hugged her. Sabi niya kasi sa'kin pag naiinis daw siya, yakapin ko lang daw si
ya. I'm just doing what a good boyfriend does.

"Wala. Akala ko ba you'll try to love me? Bakit parang hindi ka naman nag eeffor
t? Ano, Andy? Aasa na lang ba ako?"

"I'm trying, alright? Hindi naman kasi ganun kabilis 'yun."

"I know, but---" Si Dana.. "What now? Pupuntahan mo na naman siya? Aklala ko ba
gusto mo na siyang kalimutan?!"

Gusto ko, pero, "Just wait. Babalik ako." Then i stood up and went near Dana.

Pero nung lumingon ako, nakita kong umiiyak si Jamie kaya bumalik ako tapos niya
kap ko siya, "Trust me, alright? Babalik ako." Then i kissed her forehead.

-----------------------------Dana's Point of view

Dito ako ngayon sa caf, pupuntahan ko si Andy. I want to talk to him. Badly. I f
eel like i'll lose all my senses kung hindi ko pa din siya makakausap.

Pero i saw Andy hugging Jamie. That lucky btch. Ni minsan hindi ako nagawang yak
apin ni Andy out of nowhere.

Then papunta na dito si Andy tapos bigla siyang bumalik at niyakap si Jamie tapo
s he kissed her forehead. Hi-hindi niya ginawa sakin yun kahit minsan.. FU.

"Dana." He said, ni hindi siya ngumiti. It's like as if we're stranger to one an
other.

"Do you really love her?" Say no. Say no.

"What if i do love her? Ano naman sa'yo?" Then he looked straight into my eyes,
"Do you love me, Andy?"

"Bakit mo ba iniiba yung usapan?! I'm asking you. If i do love her, ano naman sa
'yo? Come on! Answer that damn question, Dana!"

"I- i don't know, alright? Naguguluhan ako, for God's sake!"

He sighed, "Then that settles this. Sasagutin ko naman yung tanong mo, I still l
ove you but I like her.. And i'm planning to love her." Then he left me.

"Hey, don't push yourself too hard, DK. Magkakasakit ka niyan." Kim told me. Sin
ce Andy walked totally out of my life, I've been doing many things. M-A-N-Y.

"Shut up. I know what I'm doing."

"Yeah. Three weeks pa lang since nagsimula ang sem pero lahat ng projects sinisi
mulan mo na." Yeah. Ginagawa ko na lahat ng projects, kahit group projects ako l
ang ang gumagawa mag isa. I need to keep myself busy. It's been two weeks since
Andy decided to forget me.

"Dean's lister, remember?"

"Yeah. Makaalis na nga. Walang matinong makausap dito. Ikaw parang robot kung ma
kapagtrabaho, si Nof missing in action. Just pure crap. Buti na lang wala akong
lovelife." Then she left.

Ano kaya ang nangyari kay Nof?

-------------------------Nof's Point of View

"Got it, dad. 7 p.m. H20 Hotel. I'll be there." Ano na naman kaya ang plano ni d
ad? Ilang beses na niya akong minatch make sa kung kani-kaninong anak ng busines
s partners niya. Frustrated match-maker yata ang dad ko. *sighs*

Nung makarating na ako sa meeting place namin, nakita ko sa dad dun sa entrance.
"Dad, bakit ganyan ang suot mo? Sabi mo semi-formal?"

"Ayoko namang sumabit sa date ng princess ko." Ayan na naman siya. Kung kani-kan
ino ako sine set-up.

"Date na naman? Dad naman! Ang kulit-kulit niyo talaga."

"Last na 'to, princess. For sure naman matutuwa ka."

"Better be sure na matutuwa ako. Lagi na lang fail ang lalaking pinapakilala niy
o sa'kin." The last time, isang manyak yung naka date ko. Dang. Inaya ba naman a
kong mag check in sa hotel after ng first meeting namin. How gross was that?!

"Remember Dave Cruz? Siya ang ka-date mo ngayon."

"What?! Dad naman!!" Then he started to laugh. "I thought you're over him? It's
been a year or two, princess. Kalimutan mo na 'yun. Start anew."

"I already moved on, dad. Besides, may girlfriend si Dave ngayon." Sara Gomez. S
he's pretty and kind.

"Then good for him." Then he sighed, "Nof, kaya ko 'to ginagawa ay para maka mov
e on ka na. Let go of the things that's hurting you or haunting you. Start being
friends again with him. Best friends kayo bago naging kayo, sayang naman ang pi
nagsamahan niyo kung masisira lang dahil hindi kayo nag work bilang romantic par
tners."

"Okay, okay. Papasok na ako." Sana nga magwork 'tong pinlano ni Dad. "Good luck,
princess."

Breath in

Breath out

Si Dave lang 'yan!

"Uhm, hello?"

"Nof." He smiled. No doubt, ang gwapo pa din ng lalaking 'to. "Take a sit."

"How's life?" Yeah. Ang boring ng tanong ko. Wala kasi akong masabi. Ang awkward
ng moment eh. "Life's good. Okay ang family business, okay ang studies, okay an
g love life."

"Good for you. Everything's doing fine." I can see it in his eyes, he's happy. B
uti pa siya naka let go na talaga.

"No. Hindi pa ako okay hanggang hindi mo pa ako napapatawad, Nof.." He just said
my name pero my hands started trembling, "Ano ka ba naman, Dave. Okay na 'yun.
Tapos na 'yun eh, kalimutan na natin.."

"Hindi natin pwedeng kalimutan 'yun," then he stared into my eyes, "Parte ka ng
buhay ko, Nof. Hindi ko kayang kalimutan 'yun."

"But you have to. Kinalimutan ko na yun, kalimutan mo na din. That's the least w
e can do."

"You're still my best friend.."

"Yeah, before you made me your girlfriend." Ako ang nakipag break sa kanya. Wala
naman siyang pakielam sa akin. Lagi siyang busy kesyo may ganito ganyan. Ang da
li lang naman kasi nun, high school student ako, college siya. Yun ang lagi niya
ng excuse.

"Pinagsisisihan ko na 'yun. I've been a jerk."

"A total jerk."

"Fine. A total jerk. Pero I already paid for that."

"Huh?"

"Nawalan ako ng best friend. That's the price for me being a jerk." Seriously, a
no ba, Dave?

"Alright, Dave. For the sake of us being friends before and for the sake of me t
otally letting go of all my hang ups, do you mind explaining why you did those t
hings to me?" Then he sighed, "Alright, but don't interrupt while i'm talking."

"Remember nung birthday mo nung fourth year ka na? Second year college ako nun a
nd i planned to surprise you since wala naman akong pasok nun. Pumunta ako sa sc
hool mo at binilan kita ng favorite cake mo." Huh? Wala naman siyang binigay na
cake sa'kin nun ah?

"Nung papunta na ako sa room niyo, nakita kita dun sa gilid. Sinundan kita and y
ou started crying. Lumapit ako para malaman kung bakit ka umiiyak. Binubully ka
pala nung mga classmates mo. Plano ko sanang lumapit para pigilan sila pero nagu
lat ako sa mga narinig ko.."

Oh shoot, narinig ni Dave yun?!

Flashback
"Ano, Nof Salvador? Loser ka talaga."

"Oo nga. In love na in love ka pa din kay Dave Cruz. Asa ka namang papatulan ka
nun." Sino ba naman ako para patulan ni Dave? Heartthrob siya nung dito pa siya
nag aaral, sophomore ako, senior siya. Maswerte na nga ako na naging best friend
s kami eh..

"Yeah, right. Hanggang bestfriends ka lang, wag ka ng umasa. Unrequited love." T

hen nagtawanan sila at nagsimula na akong umiyak.

End of flashback

"Nung una hindi ko alam ang gagawin ko. Umalis ako at tinapon ko na yung cake. G
aano ba ako katanga? In love sa'kin ang best friend ko, wala man lang akong kaal
am alam? Am i that dumb? Pero hindi ko alam kung ano ang pumasok sa isip ko at b
umalik ako. May binigay akong singsing sa'yo, remember?" Then i nodded

"Lagi 'yung nasa bulsa ko. I promised myself na ibibigay ko 'yun sa babaeng gust
o kong paksalan. I had no choice but to give it to you and ask you to be my girl
. Hindi ko kasi kaya na saktan ka. You're the sister i never had.."

I didn't notice that i started crying but i didn't say a word.

"I tried to love you. God knows i really tried. Pero hanggang kapatid lang talag
a ang turing ko sa'yo.. Kaya naman nung malapit ng umabot ng one month, sinabi k
o na kailangan ko ng tapusin 'to. Inisip ko na mang two time pero iisipin ng mga
tao na ayoko sa'yo, kaya naman i've been cold para ikaw mismo ang makipagbreak
sa akin, and in that way, wala silang masasabi sa'yo, i will be the one to blame
.."

All this time, ako lang ang iniisip ni Dave..

"Stupid! Bakit ngayon mo lang 'to sinabi?!" Then he laughed, "Ano'ng nakakatawa?
!"

"Wala. Namiss ko lang kasi yung pagsigaw mo sa'kin eh. Walang nakakasigaw ng gan
yan sa'kin, ikaw lang."

"Nakakainis ka.." Then he went near me and hugged me, "Pinilit ko ang dad mo na
makipagdate ka para makahanap ka ng lalaking para sa 'yo. Lumayo din ako kasi gu
sto kong makalimutan mo na ako. You know? Masyadong malakas ang charm ko kaya ba
ka ma in love ka ulit pag lumapit ako sa'yo."

"Ggo ka ah." Then he pinched my cheeks, "Yan. That's more like the Nof i knew."

"Payakap nga. Namiss kita eh."

He spread his arms, "Yakap na. Namiss din kita eh."

"Buti na lang okay na tayo. Nakakapagod ding magtanim ng galit sa'yo eh."

"I know. Friendship is better because relationship complicates everything." Tama


. Mas mabuting friends na lang kami. At least, friendship is forever. Walang bre
ak up, walang cool off.

"Oh." I gave the ring back to him, "Since hindi naman talaga para sa'kin yan, i'
m giving it back to you."

"Ooh. Akala ko tinapon mo na 'to eh. I'm glad na buhay pa pala 'to."

"Actually, muntik ko ng itapon talaga pero sayang kasi, diamonds eh. Hahaha. So,
this calls for a celebration. Bar tayo?"

"Ooh. Umiinom na pala ang baby best friend ko." He said that in a sarcastic way.

"Yeah, right. Baka nga mas malakas pa akong uminom sa'yo eh."

"Ano? Palakasan uminom?"

"Bring it on, best friend." Then we laughed.

-----------------------Dana's Point of View

"Huh? Ngayon sa bar ni Dave? Akala ko ba emo ka ngayon?" Tss. Nag aaya si Nof ma
g bar ngayon. Ano kaya nakain ng emo na 'yun?

"Oo na. Oo na. What?! Pati si Sara?" Ano kaya binabalak ng babaeng 'to? "Dave? A
nong? Bakit mo kasama si Nof? Oo na, oo na. Pupunta na ako dyan." Then tinapos k

o na yung gagawin ko at dinaanan ko si Sara sa room niya.

"Yo. Punta daw tayo sa bar ni Dave ngayon."

"Huh? Ano meron?"

"Malay ko sa baliw mong boyfriend." At sa emo kong kaibigan. Ano kaya meron sa d
alawa na 'yun? Malaman ko lang na may ginagawang kalokohan yung mga yun!

"Tss. Sige na nga. Wait lang, ayusin ko lang gamit ko." Then inayos niya na yung
gamit niya at umalis na kami.

BAR

Nakita namin si Dave at Nof dun sa isang table sa gilid, "Ayun pala sila, Dana.
Magkaibigan pala talaga sila?" Tanong ni Sara, "Ewan." Then i shrugged my should
ers, ayokong ako ang magsabi sa kanya, problema na nila yun.

Lumapit kami sa kanila, "Ano'ng meron?"

"Wala lang, celebration lang." Then tumingin ako sa kanila. They are smiling lik
e idiots. Seriously, anong meron?

"Teka lang. Ano ba talaga?"

"Chill ka lang, DK." Sabi ni Nof, "Inom muna tayo para masaya." Tapos umorder na
kami ng Tequila Sunrise.

"So? Mind explaining what's happening?" Then tahimik lang kami ni Sara na nakiki
nig sa kanila. Habang nagkkwento sila, tinitignan ko yung reaction ni Sara. Wala
namang negative reaction, in fact natatawa pa nga siya eh.

After ng pagkahaba haba nilang kwento, "Hahaha! Grabe kayong dalawa. Sana dati p
a kayo nagbati para masaya na tayo."

Ano daw? "What do you mean?"

"Honey babe, kung napapansin mo, paunti na tayo ng paunti. Nung una, lima tayo,
naging apat, ngayon tatlo na lang tayo. Ikaw, ako, si Dana. Buti na lang okay na
kayo ni Nof, at least, lima na ulit tayo."

Bigla akong tumawa, "My God, Sara! Iba talaga ang level of thinking mo! Hahaha.
Kung ibang babae yan, malamang nag hysterical na yan, pero ikaw, nagagawa mo pan
g bumuo ng bagong barkada. Iba ka talaga."

"Malamang. Mas nagffocus kasi ako sa bright side eh. Ano ba ang mangyayari kapag
nag emote pa ako? Wala naman di ba?"

"Oo nga. Nof, balita ko wala pa namang namamatay sa paglulok ng pride, di ba?" T
hen tumango si Nof.

"Tama ka jan, Dave. Wala pa talagang namamatay dun. Pride pride ka pa. Wala ka n
amang mapapala dun, di ba Sara?" Then tumango din si Sara.

"Ano ba ang gusto niyong palabasin na tatlo?"

"UMAMIN KA NA KASI KAY ANDY PARA ANIM NA TAYO!!" Sabay sabay nilang sabi. Pinagt
utulungan nila ako =_=

"Bakit niyo ba ako sinisigawan? Tsaka okay na tayo noh, Ako, si Sara, Nof, Kim,
at ikaw Dave. Okay na tayo noh." Di ba? Wonder friends na kami, right?

"Namimiss na namin si Andy. Come on, Dana. Sasabihin mo lang naman na mahal mo s
i Andy. I-Love-You. Three words, eight letters, say that and he's yours."

"Ang dami mong alam =_="

"Sabihin mo na sa kanya."

"Oo nga."

"Yeah."

"Ang kulit niyo."

"Hindi ka namin titigilan hangga't hindi mo inaayos ang buhay mo."

"Sara! Pinagtutulungan ako ng boyfriend mo at best friend niya!!" Then bigla sil
ang tumawa. "HINDI KA NAMIN TITIGILAN!!"

"Okay! Kakausapin ko na siya bukas. Happy?!"

Then ngumiti sila, "HAPPY ^___^"

-----------------------Andy's Point of View

Thursday. May date kami ni Jamie. Ulit. Every other day nagddate kami. Nakakasaw
a. Masyado siyang clingy. Masyadong submissive. In short, nakakasawa.

Jamie Henares
calling..

Here she goes again.. "I'll be there, okay?" Then binabaan ko siya. Paano ko nam
an siya matututunang mahalin niyan kung sinasakal niya ako?

Ayoko sa masyadong mabait na babae. Lahat na lang ng sinasabi ko sinusunod niya.


Nakakainis. Gusto ko ng independent na babae. Gusto ko ako ang sumusunod, hindi
yung ako ang sinusunod. Parang si Dana..

Dave Cruz
calling..

"What's up?" Bakit kaya 'to napatawag? "Seryoso ka? Si Dana gusto akong kausapin
? Sige, sige. Papunta na ako diyan."

To: Jamie Henares


Sorry. Can't come. May pinapagawa si Dad.

Sorry, Jamie. Kailangan kong puntahan si Dana..

25th Chapter

"Dana.." I can't believe i'll be doing this sht. Inaamin ko, gusto ko si Andy. I
like him. Bigtime. But i'm not sure if this is love. After all the complicated
things i've been through, hindi ko na alam ang pinagkaiba ng like sa love.

"Andy, can we talk?"

"Sure, sure."

Tumingin ako sa paligid, "Privately?" Then he nodded, "Yeah, let's go somewhere


private." Then we went to the rooftop of our college building. "Okay na ba dito,
Dana?"

"Yeah. So, i'll be doing this really quick, Andy." Then he nodded, "Alright."

"I like you, and i'm certain of that. Hindi ako sigurado kung mahal ba kita o an
o." Then i sighed, "Sht. I hate talking about love, it sends shiver down to my s
pine." Then he laughed, "I know you hate talking about love the most. You're emb
arrassed. You want me to turn around para hindi mo makita yung reaction ko?"

"Yeah. I think that would help." Then he turned around, "So, where was I? Yeah,
i'm not that sure kung love or like o kung anuman ang nararamdaman ko para sa'yo
. Pero naaalala ko na sinabi mo sa'kin noon na magkapareho lang naman ang love a
t like, di ba?" Then he nodded, "So i concluded na siguro nga mahal kita kasi gu
sto kita? Oh God, naguguluhan ka ba sa'kin?"

Then humarap siya, "I have three questions. Gusto mo ba akong kasama?"

"Gustung-gusto.."

Ngumiti siya, "Ano'ng naramdaman mo nung nalaman mong girlfriend ko si Jamie?"

"Honestly, i wanted to strangle her.." His smiled turned bigger.

"Pag nawala ako, ano ang gagawin mo?"

It's my turn to laugh, "Oh God! Don't tell me you're expecting me na sasabihin k
o na magpapakamatay ako pag nawala ka? Hahaha. Asa ka naman!" Then he laughed, "
No, kung 'yun ang sinagot mo, hindi ako maniniwala."

"Huh?"

"Because i know you, matalino ka. Independent. Stubborn. Self-centered. Brat. Eg


oistic. But i love you because of that. Because you can kick my ass like no one
else."

It's my turn to shut up. Then he came nearer and hugged me, "Dana Kathryn Ferrer
, hindi mo naman kailangang sagutin yung huli kong tanong eh."

"Huh?" Puro na lang huh ang nasasabi ko =_=

"Kasi hindi naman ako mawawala sa tabi mo. In whatever you do, i'll be two steps
behind.."

Teka, lyrics sa kanta yun ah! "Che! Ang corny mo. Tsaka wala kang originality."

Then tumawa na naman siya. Bakit lalo siyang gumagwapo pag tumatawa siya? =_=

"So tayo na?"

"Asa ka boy. Gagawin mo pa akong kabit?" Srsly, si Jamie legal tapos ako illegal
? Over my dead body.

"Makikipagbreak ako sa kanya tapos tayo na?"

"Nope."

"Ano?! I can't read you, Dana."

"I have better plans, Andy." Yeah. It's payback time, Little Jamie. "Ano naman '
yun?"

"Date her tonight, make her happy, and be a gentleman kahit hindi." Then i rolle
d my eyes.

"Tapos?"

"Break her heart. Make her understand that she's no one like me." I wanna see he
r crying. She decided to play with me, so this is the price she's going to pay.

"Don't you think that's a little too overboard?"

"Don't tell me may gusto ka sa kanya?"

"No. Ikaw ang mahal ko, pero naaawa ako sa kanya.."

"Andy, there's a thin line between love and pity. Are you sure that you love me?
"

"Fine. Pasalamat ka mahal kita." Then i went near him and hugged him, "Last na '
to, Andy. After this, we'll start anew.."

----------------------Jamie's Point of View

From: Andy Guzman <3


Tonight. Sofitel. Wear something formal.

We have a date tonight! At last, inaya ako ni Andy magdate. That's a starter, ri
ght? Lagi na lang ako ang nag iinitiate na magdate kami eh. At least, siya na an
g nag aaya ngayon. That's probably a good news.

"Mom, can i go out?"

"Let's have breakfast first, darling."

"But i have to go to the mall. Dun na lang ako kakain, i think?"

"No. Let's eat together like a family." Like a family? Ynna's not even here. "Si
nce when we became a family, mom?"

"Jamie, stop acting like a brat!"

"I'm not a brat, mom. I'm just saying that we can't eat like a family because Yn
na's not even here. Can you get what i'm saying?"

"Call her Ate Ynna, Jamie. For God's sake, give some respect to her.. Ate mo pa
din siya.." I shouldn't respect her. She's a btch for all i care.

"She never treated me like a sister, so why should i respect her? Bigla bigla na

lang siyang nawawala. Malalaman ko na lang na nasa States siya kasama ang isang
lalaking Cyriel ang pangalan, and i don't even know who the hell that guy is! A
nd guess what? Sa katulong ko pa 'yun nalaman, mom! Mas may alam pa yung mga kat
ulong kaysa sa akin na sarili niyang kapatid! Now tell me, should i respect her?
"

She's speechless, "I gotta go."

My life is a crap. Buti na lang nandyan si Andy. I'd die kung iiwan niya ako..

----------------------Dana's Point of View

"Everything's settled?" I called Andy. Tonight's the night.

"Yeah. But you promised me that after this, titigilan mo na si Jamie."

"Yeah, sure. O siya, break a leg, lover boy."

Then the line went dead. I think this calls for a celebration. Tatawagan ko nga
sila Sara, i'm sure she'll be overwhelmed by this news.
-----------------------

Jamie's Point of View

Nandito na ako sa Sofitel. Wala naman kasing sinabing specific place si Andy kay
a nandito muna ako sa entrance.

Biglang may lumapit na lalaki, "Ms. Jamie Henares?" Then i nodded, "Flowers for
you, madame."

Tinanggap ko yung flowers tapos binasa ko yung card, ang nakalagay:

To the prettiest lady i ever laid my eyes upon

-Andy

Si Andy talaga.. "This way madame.." Then he led me to a private room. Pagbukas
ko ng pinto, nandun si Andy. Lumapit ako the i kissed him. I really love this gu
y!

"Let's eat?" He smiled, "Hindi ko kasi alam kung ano ang gusto mong kainin eh, s
orry." Yeah. Wala siyang alam tungkol sa akin. Ako lang ang may alam tungkol sa
kanya, but still, i know we can work things out..

"That's alright. It's the thought that counts, right?" Then he smiled. Tapos kum
ain na kami. After namin kumain, tumayo si Andy at lumapit sa akin, "Can i have
this dance?"

"Sure, Mr. Guzman." Then i stood up, and went near him. Then music started playi
ng,

See how she's lookin in my eyes. Any guy would kill for that. She's a beautiful
girl and she's into me but I'm too busy still looking back. Now I'm walking her
to the door tryin' to kiss her goodnight. Something inside just don't feel right
..

"Andy, b-bakit ganyan 'yung kanta?"

"Jamie, i know you love me and i appreciate that."

My friends tell me I gotta give it up so I've been trying to move on. But my hea
rts still caught and my heads not clear of the pictures from before you were gon
e. And I never wanna hurt no one. Tryin' to forget your name. Something inside j
ust don't feel the same..

"But i still love her and you know that. You're beautiful, Jamie. I'm sure makak
ahanap ka din ng lalaking magmamahal sa'yo ng katulad ng pagmamahal ko kay Dana.
."

She's not you. And I don't know what to say. But I'll say it anyway. No matter w
hat I do. I can't believe the lie. And I just can't see it through. No, she's no
t you..

"Can't you love me, Andy? Kahit konti lang?"

"I tried, Jamie.. I really tried. Pero si Dana talaga ang gusto ko.. Kapag kasam
a kita, si Dana lang ang naiisip ko. Kung kamusta na siya, kumain na kaya siya,
nagagalit na naman kaya siya, puro na lang siya. Mababaliw na ako kapag hindi ko
siyaa nakita, Jamie. Naramdaman mo na ba 'yun?"

I didn't know it would hurt this bad..

"Nararamdaman ko 'yun, Andy! Mahal kita! Kapag hindi tayo magkasama lagi kong in
iisip kung kamusta ka na ba, kung kumain ka na, kung ano ang iniisip mo! Kahit k
apag magkasama tayo iniisip ko kung si Dana ba yang laman ng isip mo. Alam mo 'y
un? Nababaliw na ko. Nasasaktan na ako!"

Woke up in the middle of the night. Started reaching for the phone. Had to take
a breath and remind myself that you said you needed time alone. Didn't know what
I wanted then and I know I let you down. Baby I know what I gotta do now..

"I'm sorry, Jamie.."

"Ginamit mo lang ako!"

"I'm sorry.."

"I hate you!

She's not you. And I don't know what to say. But I'll say it anyway. No matter w
hat I do. I can't believe the lie. And I just can't see it through. No, she's no
t you..

"I'm really sorry.. I love Dana, and she's not you.."

----------------------Andy's Point of View

"I'm really sorry.. I love Dana, and she's not you.."

That's it. Aalis na ako. Hindi ko na kayang makitang umiiyak si Jamie.

"Sana makahanap ka ng lalaking para sa'yo, Jamie. Good luck and good bye.."

Sana naman maging maayos na ang lahat. Ang dami ng nangyari, ang dami nang nasak
tan. I hope it's all worth it. Sorry talaga, Jamie.

----------------------Dana's Point of View

"Andy? Nandito kami sa bar ni Dave. Uhuh. Sure, sunod ka na lang dito. Bye." As
i have said, nandito kami sa bar ni Dave. Celebration, baby. At long last, napat
umba na din namin si Jamie.

"Si Andy? Akala ko ba hindi siya makakarating?"

"I thought so. Eh tapos na pala yung date nila ni Jamie eh." I wonder kung ano k
aya ang nangyari? Excited na akong malaman ang details.

"What?! Pinayagan mong magdate si Andy at Jamie? Seriously, what has gotten into
you?" KIm said. Oo nga pala, wala siya dito kahapon.

"Chill, alright? Andy and I, we're good. Let's just say na farewell date yung na
ngyari. I'm being good here, can't you see? Pinapasaya ko muna si Little J bago
niya marealize na talo siya."

"Grabe, Dana. Pinagawa mo yun kay Andy? Sa ilang taon naming pagkakaibigan, hind
i pa nagpaiyak ng babae 'yan. Sabihin na nating player siya, pero hindi siya nag
papaiyak. Para sa kanya, minamahal dapat ang babae, hindi sinasaktan.." Pero oka
y lang naman yun di ba? Binabalik ko lang naman yung ginawa ni Jamie sa'kin.

"Shut up, Honey. Namumutla na si Dana oh." Biglang lumapit si Sara sa'kin, "It'l
l be alright, okay? Hindi na bata si Jamie. For sure nakadanas na ng break up 'y

an. She'll know what to do."

She's right. I don't need to feel guilty.

"Si Andy oh."

He's here. "Andy.."

He smiled, "Oh. Kumpleto pala tayo."

"Yeah. Come on, ano ang nangyari? How was Jamie?"

He sighed, "I don't wanna talk about that. Sorry. Let's just drink."

----------------------Andy's Point of View

"Guys, labas muna ako. May naiwan ako sa sasakyan eh." Lumabas muna ako ng bar.
I need some fresh air. I feel guilty and suffocated.

"Pare, i know you. Ano ba yung nangyari?" Si Dave. Sinundan niya pala ako. "I do
n't know, Dave. Nagguilty ako. Iyak ng iyak si Jamie kanina. Pakiramdam ko ang s
ama sama kong tao." Kung nakita niyo lang yung itsura niya, maaawa din kayo sa k
anya.

"Bakit mo nga ba ginawa 'yun, in the first place? I know you, Andy. Wala sa boka
bularyo mo ang magpaiyak ng babae.."

"Si Dana kasi eh. Gusto niyang gawin ko yun para maging kami. You know how much
i love Dana. Gagawin ko lahat makuha ko lang siya."

"I know. Kahit nga kaibigan natin tinalo mo eh."

Yeah. Kaibigan ko inagawan ko. Nagsinungaling pa ako.

"Ayoko ng pag usapan 'yun."

"Alright. So, ano na plano mo ngayon?"

"Liligawan ko si Dana. Tapos magiging kami. Ayun." 'Yun lang naman ang gusto ko
eh.

"Pag naging kayo tapos dumating si Cy, ano gagawin mo?"

"Sana lang dumating siya pag mahal na mahal na ako ni Dana." Yung mahal na mahal
niya ako na ako na yung pipiliin niya kapag pinapili siya sa amin ni Cyriel..
----------------------Jamie's Point of View

"Miss, ano'ng ginagawa mo dyan?! Wag kang gagalaw! Mahuhulog ka!"

"Sabihin mo sa kanila, wala silang kwentang lahat! Sa magulang ko, puro sila Ynn
a, Ynna, Ynna! Magsama-sama sila! Sabihin mo din kay Andy, kahit ginago niya ako
, mahal na mahal ko pa din siya, alagaan sana siya ni Dana.."

"Missssss!!"

26th Chapter

Sara Gomez
calling..

"Why?" Ang aga- aga tumatawag na agad, "Where the hell on earth are you?!"

"Chill. Ano bang problema mo? Ang aga aga pa eh."

"Seriously, Dana, pumunta ka na dito sa school. Ngayon na!"

"Give me a good reason kung bakit ako pupunta jan." Inaantok pa kasi talaga ako.
7 a.m. pa lang, 10 pa ang start ng klase ko.

"Jamie Henares. I think that's good enough. Now, get up and go here. A-S-A-P!" C
all ended. Seriously, kung hindi mahalaga yung sasabihin niya, magagalit talaga
ako sa kanya!

The moment i went out of my car, napansin ko agad yung mga reporter sa harap ng
Admin. building. Ano ba ang meron sa school namin ngayon? Oh well. Paano ko mala
laman eh ni hindi nga ako nanonood ng balita o nagbabasa ng dyaryo.

"What?!" I asked them. Nakatingin kasi silang lahat sa akin tapos lumapit sa aki
n si Sara at may binigay sa akin na newspaper, "This explains why, Dana.."

Manila Times

"Gov. Henares' daughter, Jamie Henares, died of committing suicde."

"Oh God." That's the headline. As i read the latter part of the report, "Si Andy
?" Hindi sila lahat sumagot.

"Fck it! Dave, nasan si Andy?!"

"Hindi ko alam. Kanina ko pa siya tinatawagan, hindi ko siya ma contact."

Sht. Ano kaya ang nangyari kay Andy?

"Where do you think you're going?" Sara asked me, "Pupunta ako sa kanila. I can'
t sit here and wait for him to come. Nag-aalala ako, Sara! Baka kung ano ang gaw
in nun!"

Baka sinisisi niya yung sarili niya..

"Relax, Dana. It's no use kung pupunta ka sa bahay nila, tumawag na si Dave dun
kanina at sinabi ni Tita na umalis siya, alright?"

"Kahit na, Nof. Hindi ko kayang maghintay dito. I'll go nuts!"

"Shut up, Dana!" Kim shouted, "Wala namang magagawa 'yang pag pa panic mo eh. Wh
at's done is done. Wala ng mangyayari."

She's right. Tapos na, wala ng rewind. Wala na si Jamie. But si Andy.. Kailangan
ako ni Andy ngayon..

"Then tell me, what should i do? Relax? Kahit nag aalala ako kung ano yung ginag
awa ni Andy? Kung baka sinisisi niya yung sarili niya sa nangyari kay Jamie? Com
e on, tell me, Kim. Tell me!"

Tumahimik silang lahat. Ngayon lang ulit ako sumigaw ng ganito.

"DK, just breathe. Everything will be fine, alright?" Nof said.

"I'm fine. I'm thinking about Andy."

"He'll be fine. Trust me. Alam mo naman yung nangyari kay Lynne di ba? He'd been
through worst. He can handle this one, Dana." Dave assured me.

Si Lynne..

Oh God! Baka nandun siya kay Lynne ngayon!

"San ka na naman pupunta?"

"Basta. I'll just call you later." Then off i go. Andy, wait for me..

--------------Andy's Point of View

"Andrei, wake up!"

"Mmm. Mom, ang aga-aga pa. I wanna sleep." Then i covered myself with my pillow.

"I'm serious, Andrei. Wake up!" Ano bang problema ng mga tao ngayon? Gusto ko la
ng namang matulog eh. Tss

"What now?" May binigay siyang dyaryo, "Mamaya ko na lang babasahin yan, mom. Le
t me sleep first." Then i gave her back the newspaper.

"Andrei, i'm not fooling around. Read the headline!"

"Alright, alright." Umupo na ako sa kama ko tapos binuksan ko yung dyaryo, "Gov.
Hena--- Sht.!"

Oh Sht!

"What now, Andrei? Ano'ng nangyari kay Jamie?"

"Andrei? San ka pupunta? Andrei?!"

"Aalis ako, mom. I'll explain later. Please. I need to go." Tapos umalis na ako.
Tangina, Andy! Tignan mo yung ginawa mo! Ang tanga tanga mo talaga!

Sumakay na ako sa sasakyan ko. Nagdrive ako. Hindi ko alam kung san ako pupunta.
Ang ggo ko talaga!

Dave Cruz
calling..

I turned off my phone. Sorry, pare. Ayoko ng may kausap ngayon.

Kanina pa ako nagddrive hanggang makarating ako dito, "Lynne.. I need you.." Hin
di ko alam umiiyak na pala ako.

"Bakit nauulit na naman yung nangyari? Talaga bang kailangan may mamatay para la
ng sumaya ako?"

--------------Dana's Point of View

"Bakit nauulit na naman yung nangyari? Talaga bang kailangan may mamatay para la
ng sumaya ako?"

Si Andy..

I went near him and hugged him from behind, "Andy.."

Hindi pa din siya nagsasalita..

Tahimik lang siya pero alam kong umiiyak siya..

"I'm sorry. Wag ka ng umiyak, please! Andy naman! Wag ka ng umiyak.."

"I'm sorry kung naging immature ako, kung naging selfish ako, kung ginamit kita
para saktan si Jamie. Andy, please wag kang maguilty. Wag mong sisihin yung sari
li mo. Ako yung may kasalanan.."

Hindi pa din siya humaharap.


"Kausapin mo naman ako.."

"Andy.."

"I love you, Andy.."

Humarap na siya.

"I love you, Dana. Pero sana wag mong sabihing mahal mo ako dahil lang nagguilty
ka.. Wag mo naman akong paglaruan."

Tapos tumayo na siya at umalis. Ano ba talaga, Andy?!

--------------Sara's Point of View

"Ano na kaya ang nangyari sa dalawa na 'yun?" Nandito kami sa caf ngayon. Hinihi
ntay namin si Dana at Andy. Buti na lang wala yung prof. ko ngayon.

"Hindi ko alam. Ano ba talaga yung nangyari kay Jamie?"

"Sabi dun sa newspaper, tumalon daw ng building. Rooftop. Cause of death: Intern
al hemorrage tsaka fracture sa skull."

"Tsk. Grabe naman pala. Ano'ng floor ba yung tinalunan niya?" Tanong ni Kim.

"Rooftop nga di ba?" Sabi naman ni Nof. Ang pilosopo talaga nito =___=

"I know! What i mean is, gaano ba kataas yung building?" Tapos inirapan niya si
Nof. Parang bata lang eh.

"38 floors yung building, bale pang 39 yung rooftop." Ang taas pala nun. No wond
er, hindi siya nakaligtas.

"Grabe! Kaya naman pala siya namatay eh. Ang taas pala nung building na 'yun!"

"Guys, tignan nyo yung TV!" Sabi ni Nof, kaya tumingin kami sa TV. May TV kasi s
a caf eh.

"...ayon sa pagsisiyasat, nagpakamatay umano ang anak ng gobernador dahil sa pag


hihiwalay nila ng kasintahan. Hindi pa din matukoy kung ito nga ba o mayroon pan
g ibang dahilan kung bakit ito nagpakamatay.."

Sht. Paano pag kumalat na si Andy yung boyfriend ni Jamie? Ano na ang mangyayari
kay Andy at Dana?

"Guys, alis na muna ako." Sabi ni honeybabes.

"San ka pupunta?"

"Uuwi. Tawag ako ni mama eh. Tawagan na lang kita. I love you." Umalis na siya.

--------------Dave's Point of View

From: Andy Guzman


Dito ko sa bahay niyo. Sa kwarto mo muna ko.

Kailangan ko ng umuwi. Baka kung ano na gawin ng lalaking yun eh.

"Guys, alis na muna ako."

"San ka pupunta?" Tanong ni Sara. Ayokong magsinungaling pero kailangan eh. Sorr
y.

"Uuwi. Tawag ako ni mama eh. Tawagan na lang kita. I love you."

Nagdrive na ako papunta sa amin. After 20 mins. nandun na ako.

Pagpasok ko sa kwarto nakita ko yung mga gamit ni Andy nasa kama ko. Wala naman
siya sa kwarto kaya lumabas ako. Nandun siya sa mini bar. Umiinom.

Inagaw ko yung baso niya, "Ang aga-aga pa eh."

"Nagguilty ako.. Akin na nga yan." Kinuha niya ulit yung baso.

"Alam mo, parang ganito din yung nangyari dati sakin eh. Bakit lagi na lang may
namamatay na babaeng napalapit sa akin? Sa tingin mo ba malas ako?"

Ayoko ng ganito si Andy eh. Nung namatay si Lynne, hindi mo siya makakausap ng m
atino. Nagsimula siyang maglasing tsaka manigarilyo. Sana hindi maulit 'yun ngay
on.

"Alam mong wala kang kasalanan, Andy.."

"Napanood ko sa TV, Dave! Nagpakamatay daw siya dahil nakipagbreak yung boyfrien
d niya. Ako yun, Dave! Ako!"

"Pero hindi mo naman talaga siya girlfriend, di ba?"

"Kahit na. Tangina naman! Nagguilty talaga ako!"

Sht. Ano ba ang sasabihin ko?

"Si Dana, Andy. Umayos ka kahit para kay Dana."

"..."

Hindi siya nagsalita, nagkita na kaya sila ni Dana?

"Tell me, sinisisi mo ba si Dana sa nangyari?" Technically, si Dana ang pumilit


kay Andy na makipagbreak.

Huminga siya ng malalim, "Hindi. Hindi ko siya sinisisi, hindi ko siya sisisihin
dahil hindi ko siya kayang sisihin." Tapos uminom ulit siya, "Ako yung may kasa
lanan eh. Kung hindi ako ggo, eh di sana nung nakaalala na ulit ako, iniwan ko s
iya. Eh ang ggo ko, pinagpatuloy ko pa din kahit alam ko na yung totoo. Kung nag
pakalalaki lang sana ako noon, eh di hindi sana siya nagpakamatay ngayon. Tangin
a talaga!"

"Ano'ng plano mo ngayon?"

"Ewan ko. Dito muna ako matutulog. Ayokong umuwi sa'min eh. Pag tinanong ka ni D
ana, sabihin mo hindi mo alam, okay?" Tapos umalis na siya at pumunta sa kwarto
ko.

Hay, Dana. Ang swerte mo talaga at mahal na mahal ka ni Andy.

---------------

Dana's Point of View

calling..
Andy Guzman

Andy naman eh! Sagutin mo nga yung tawag ko! Aish. Cannot be reached na. Bwisit
naman eh!

calling..
Dave Cruz

"Hello? Dave? Anjan ba si Andy?"

"Nandito nga siya. Pero wag kang pumunta. Bukas na lang, okay? Ayaw niyang makip
ag usap ngayon eh. Intindihin mo muna siya."

"Sige, sige. Ikaw na muna ang bahala sa kanya."

Call ended.

Aish. Ano ang gagawin ko ngayon?

Pumunta ako ng school ngayon. Pupuntahan ko na lang sila Sara. Habang naglalakad
ako, pinagcchismisan ako ng mga babae.

"Di ba siya yung laging kasama ni Andrei? Baka siya yung dahilan kaya nagbreak s
i Jamie at Andrei. Tss. Grabe.."

"Kawawa naman si Jamie.. Grabe talaga si DK.."

"Naaalala mo pa nung first year? Di ba inagawan niya din si Ynna? Yung kapatid n
i Jamie? Grabe, ang laki ng galit niya sa mga Henares noh?"

Nakakainis! Pwede bang magchismisan sila eh sana yung hindi ko naman naririnig?!

Huminto ako sa paglalakad, "Kung wala kayong magawang matino, bakit hindi na lan
g din kayo tumalon sa rooftop para magka thrill naman ang boring niyong mga buha
y?! Mga bwisit!" Tapos umalis na ako..

"Dana!" Lumapit sila sa akin tapos niyakap ako, "Ano? Okay ka lang ba?"

"Okay lang ako. Pwede bang sa unit ko muna kayo matulog tatlo?"

"Sure. Sige. Hintayin lang natin si Kim, matataapos na naman ang klase niya eh."

Hinintay namin si Kim tapos pumunta na kami sa unit ko. Haay.

"Guys, ano? Ako ba yung may kasalanan? Am i a murderer?" I asked them. Pilit kon
g pinapasok sa isip ko na wala akong kasalanan, pero kahit anong gawin ko, deep
inside, alam kong may kasalanan ako.. I contributed to her death..

"Wala kang kasalanan, alright? Wag mong sisihin ang sarili mo.."

"Oo nga. Malay mo ba na marami palang problema si Jamie."

"Right. And she's not that dumb naman siguro para magpakamatay para lang kay And
y. That's too lame.."

Sana nga tama sila. Sana nga wala kaming kasalanan ni Andy. Sana nga..

"But what will i do now? Ayaw akong kausapin ni Andy. Iniiwasan niya ako."

"Pano mo naman nalaman? Nagkita na ba kayo ngayon?" Sara asked.

"Yeah. Kanina sa cemetery, sa puntod ni Lynne."

"Lynne?" Sabay na tanong ni Kim at Nof.

"Lynne. Andy's first girlfriend." Mejo na shock sila sa narinig nila. Akala kasi
nila, ako ang unang girlfriend ni Andy..

"She's dead, right? But why?" Kinwento ko sa kanila yung nangyari kay Lynne, fro
m the start up to now. As i was telling the story, napansin ko, ang dami na pala
naming napagdaanan ni Andy. 3 years na kaming magkakilala. Ang tagal na din pal
a.

"Grabe. Tama nga si Dave, he'd been through worst. Kakayanin 'to ni Andy, DK. Re
st assured." Nof told me. Sana nga. Sana nga may assurance ako.

"Teka, teka. Alam mo ba kung nasan si Andy ngayon?"

"Kila Dave.."

"What?!" Sigaw ni Sara, "Ang lalaking yun! Hindi man lang sinabi sa'kin!!"

"Relax naman. Hindi naman siguro sinasadya ni Dave na magtago sa'yo. Afterall, b
est friends din sila ni Andy, Sara."

"Tama si Nof. Si Andy ang nakiusap na wag ipaalam sa atin na nandun siya. Wag ka
ng magalit kay Dave."

"Fine, fine. Pero bukas na bukas, pupunta tayo dun. Kailangan niyo ng mag usap.
Wag niyo na 'tong patagalin. Ayusin na ang dapat ayusin."

Pagkatapos naming magkwentuhan, natulog na kami. Mag uusap tayo bukas, Andy!

27th Chapter

"Dana, wake up."

"Mmm."

"Hey!" Someone's shaking me. Fck it =___=

"What?! Past 1 na ako nakatulog. Let me sleep, guys." I said then i went back to
bed. Hindi ako nakatulog kagabi because of Andy. I'm freakin' worried.

"Fine then. Kami na lang ang pupunta kila Dave. Suit yourself." Nof said then i
heard the door being closed.

I didn't bother running after them. Susunod na lang ako. 6 am pa lang naman eh.
But i grabbed my phone and texted Sara.

To: Sara Gomez


Be there before 8. Sorry.

Then i tried to sleep again..

"I hate you, DK!"

Si Jamie.. I thought she's dead?

"I hate you, DK!"

"I hate you, DK!"

She's coming near me..

"I hate you, DK!"

She's suffocating me! Someone help.. Andy..

"I hate you, DK!"

"Aaaagh!!" Napaupo ako sa kama. It's just a dream, Dana. Hindi totoo yun. Calm d
own. Panaginip lang yun. Jamie's dead. She's gone.. Forever. At wala kang kasala
nan. You're innocent. Hindi mo ginustong mamatay siya..

After that freaky nightmare, naligo na ako at nagbihis. Before 8, nakila Dave na
ako. I went inside their house. Kilala na naman ako ng guards dito eh, so no wo
rry.

As i entered their house, pumunta agad ako sa mini bar. I don't know, it's just
that feeling ko, nandun si Andy..

And there he is.. "Andy.." I went near him and stared at his eyes pero hindi siy
a nakatingin sa akin. His eyes are glued on the floor. But i can see the dark ci
rcles around his eyes. He's been up all night.

"We should probably go." Dave said.

"I think so, too." Kim said.

Then biglang lumapit sa akin si Sara, "Talk to him, alright? He loves you, Dana.
That's one thing we are all sure of." Then she kissed my cheeks, "Good luck. Ma

lalampasan niyo din yan.."

Kami na lang ni Andy ang nandito.

"Andy, talk to me."

No use, hindi pa din siya nagsasalita.

"Come on! Magsalita ka! Sisihin mo ako, magalit ka sa akin! Curse me all you wan
t! But don't you ever try not speak to me!" I shouted. Nahihirapan na ako. Hindi
ako sanay na hindi siya nagsasalita. Sanay ako na lagi siyang may sinasabi sa a
kin. Mas gusto ko pa na sisihin niya ako sa nangyari, that would be better. Pero
yung ganito na hindi niya ako kinakausap? It sucks. It's worst.

Hindi pa din siya nagsasalita, instead, tumayo siya fom the stool and started wa
lking away.

"Bullsht!" Binato ko yung baso. I don't care kung maubos ko lahat ng wine glass
nila dito! Naiinis na ako!

Huminto siya sa paglalakad.

"Alam ko naman na ako yung may kasalanan eh. Ang tanga tanga ko. Ang ggo ggo ko!
Ang immature ko para patulan siya. Alam ko, Andy. Alam ko. Sabihin na nilang ak
o yung may kasalanan, ako yung may mali. Wala naman akong pakielam eh."

I paused, hindi ko mapigilan, naiiyak na ako. Nanginginig na yung boses ko.

"Mahal kita eh. Alam mo yun? Alam mo yung masakit? Yung sinabi mo na pinaglalaru
an kita! Tangina naman kasi! Minsan ko na nga lang sabihin yun, hindi pa ako pan
iniwalaan. Alam mo kung gano kasakit yun? Tagos, Andy. Tagos."

Tapos tinuro ko yung puso ko.

"Sabi nila, nagpakamatay daw siya dahil iniwan mo siya. Ako yung sinisisi nila.
Tangina lang! Isa lang naman yung kasalanan ko eh.. Yung inamin kong mahal kita.

Yun lang yung kasalanan ko, Andy. Yun lang."

Pagkatapos, tumalikod na ako. Hindi ko na kaya, hindi na ako makahinga..

Maglalakad na ako papalayo pero Andy hugged me from behind, "I love you."

Yun lang yung sinabi niya pero ang saya saya ng pakiramdam ko..

"We'll figure things out.."

"Hindi ka na galit sa akin?"

"Sino ba'ng nagsabing galit ako sa'yo?"

"You were not talking to me.."

"I was thinking."

"Thinking about what?" This time, humarap na ako sa kanya, with tears on my face
.

Pinunasan niya yung luha ko habang sinasabing, "Iniisip ko kung paano ako magrre
act ng hindi mo sisisihin yung sarili mo.."

Oh God.

"I love you that much, Dana. Ayokong makaramdam ka ng guilt. I'll take all the b
lame, wag ka lang madamay dito."

Hindi ako makapagsalita.

"I'm sorry kung pinag alala kita.. I should've have talked to you.."

All these time, ako na naman ang iniisip niya. Tama nga sila Dave, ang swerte ko
kay Andy..

"I-I don't know what to say.."

Then he hugged me again, "It's alright. Ako na ang bahala.."

"Ano'ng balak mo?"

"I have no plans yet. I'll let you know when i have one."

"What about us, Andy?" Kami ba? Hindi? What?

"Maybe.. I'll stop courting you.."

Napaalis ako sa yakap, "You'll what?!"

"I said i'll stop courting you." Is he serious?

"Ano? Bakit?!"

"I don't want people blaming you pag nalaman nilang ikaw ang nililigawan ko righ
t after Jamie died.."

"But i can handle that.." I know i can. I'm used to people judging me, right?

"Alam ko."

"Alam mo naman pala eh. Bakit mo to ginagawa?"

"I honestly don't know."

"Ano tayo ngayon? Friends with benefits? Ganon?"

He looked straight into my eyes, "I love you and you have my heart. I think that
's more than enough."

So there we are, FRIENDS. Ang dami nang nangyari. Three years na nga, di ba? Ang
dami na naming pinagdaanan ni Andy eh. Pero sa dinami dami nun, we're not toget
her as a couple. We've been friends, friends with benefits, friends, enemies, fr
iends again, almost lovers, and now, back to being friends. Kailan kaya magiging
kami talaga? Yung may committment talaga. Yung masasabi ko na boyfriend ko siya
at girlfriend niya ako.

"So, are we going to Jamie's wake?" Kim asked, first day kasi ng burial ni Jamie
. I don't know if we should go or not.

"I don't know.."

Half of me says that we should go and at least pay some respect, but the other h
alf says not to go..

"Maybe tomorrow?" I said. Siguro naman bukas, okay na ako.

"Then it's settled. We'll go tomorrow." Dave said.

"So, uuwi na kami. It's been a long day."

Then we said bye. Hinatid ni Dave si Sara, Kim, at Nof. Kami na lang ni Andy ang
naiwan dito.

"I think we should go first tomorrow." Andy said.

"I think so, too."

Kinabukasan, sinabi namin sa kanila na mauna na kaming pupunta. Kailangan naming


makausap yung parents ni Jamie ng kaming dalawa lang ni Andy. We should explain
. We owe them an explanation. That's the least we can do..

Then we went to the place where Jamie's burial was taking place. 2nd day na ng l
amay niya..

Natatakot akong lumabas ng sasakyan, pero Andy held my hand, "All will be fine."
Then he kissed my forehead.

Papasok kami sa loob, ang daming tao. Mga reporters, kaibigan ni Jamie, kapamily
a niya, mga kaibigan niya from St. Claire's..

We went straight in front, kung san nandun ang parents ni Jamie..

"Our deepest condolences, Mr. and Mrs. Henares.." I said.

"I'm sorry for you loss.. And I was her boyfriend, sir.." That's what Andy said.
Tinignan siya ng daddy ni Jamie in the eyes tapos pinapunta kami sa private roo
m. Me, Andy, Jamie's mom and dad.

"I'm very sorry, sir!" Andy said while bowing his head. At nung tinaas niya yung
ulo niya..

*Punch*

Jamie's dad punched Andy kaya napasubsob siya sa sahig.

"That's for hurting my daughter, you a hole! Kung hindi mo siya kayang mahalin,
sana man lang hindi mo siya pinaglaruan! Ggo ka!" He said.

"I'm sorry." Andy said.

Naglakad na papalayo si Mr. Henares then he went out. Nandito pa si Mrs. Henares
. Nilapitan ko si Andy, may cut siya sa lips, dumudugo. Tinulungan ko siyang tum
ayo.

"Are you alright?"

"Okay lang ako.."

"I'm very sorry for my husband's attitude." Mrs. Henares said, "He's still in sh
ock.. Alam niyo namang bunso naming anak si Jamie.."

"We understand, ma'am." I said.

"Pero para sa ikagagaan ng loob niyo, sasabihin ko sa inyo ang nangyari nung gab
ing tumalon si Jamie sa rooftop ayon sa witness.."

Nagsimula siyang ikwento yung mga sinabi ni Jamie bago siya mamatay. Umiiyak siy
a habang nagsasalita. It's very painful, i know. Alam ko ang pakiramdam ng mawal
an. Nawalan ako ng kapatid eh.

"Hindi lang si Andy ang dahilan.. Kasalanan din namin ng asawa ko, masyado namin
siyang napabayaan kaya akala niya walang nagmamahal sa kanya. Puro kami trabaho
eh, akala naman namin okay na naibibigay namin lahat ng kailangan niya. But the
n, that was not enough, sinabi niya before she jumped na hindi niya naramdaman n
a mahal namin siya."

All along, hindi pala masaya si Jamie. She was unhappy all her life. Ang sama ko
. It sucks to be me.

"Sinabi niya din na mahal na mahal niya si Andy.. Hindi siya galit sa inyo.. San
a lang daw, mahalin mo siya ng kagaya ng pagmamahal ng anak ko sa kanya.. You're
one lucky guy, Andy. Mahal na mahal ka ng anak ko. Even before her death, ikaw
pa din ang iniisip niya."

And that's it. I started crying. I'm very sorry, Jamie. If i could only take bac
k time.. Kung hindi ka lang niya kapatid, maybe we'll be good friends..

Tahimik lang kaming tatlo, patuloy na tinatanggap yung mga pangyayari. Ang hirap
din kasi, masyadong mabilis..

*knock knock*

May pumasok na katulong, "Madam, nandyan na po si Senorita Ynna kasama si Sir Cy


riel.."

Oh God. Not now.

Sara's Point of View

"Yeah. On the way na kami. Uhuh. Sure, kita kita na lang tayo dun. Yeah. Bye."

Dave's looking at me, "Hey, don't look at me like that. Si Nof lang yung kausap
ko, alright?"

"Why are you even explaining?" Then he laughed. I really love Dave! I swear, "So
, shall we go?" Then he offered his arms.

"I think we shall go."

Then we went to Jamie's wake. Sabi ni Dana, mas mauuna na daw silang pumunta kay
a nagsabay na lang kami nila Nof at Kim.

"Babe, mauna ka na, may hinahanap lang ako sa purse ko." Tapos pumasok na si Dav
e. Nasan na ba yung phone ko?!

San ko ba nilagay yun?

Ah, nasa purse ko nga pala. Tss. Napakamakakalimutin ko naman.

Habang naglalakad ako, hinahanap ko pa yung phone ko sa purse but then, may naka
bunggo ako kaya nalaglag lahat ng laman ng purse ko.

Habang pinupulot ko yung mga nahulog, "Miss, i'm sorry, hindi ako tumi--- Oh my
God!"

Ynna's back!

"It's fine. No damage done." Then she started walking, "Nice seeing you again, S
ara. I didn't expect na sa lamay pa ng kapatid ko tayo magkikita.." Then she lef
t.

With Jamie's death and Ynna's return,

Oh God. What can be more complicated than this?!

----------------Dave's Point of View

"Babe, mauna ka na, may hinahanap lang ako sa purse ko." Tapos umalis na ako. An
g daming tao dito. Nasan na ba si Andy at Dana?

calling...
Andy Guzman

"Unavailable. Psh."

Habang naglalakad ako, nakita ko yung isa kong kaibigan sa St. Claire's, "Pare,
nakita mo ba si Andy sa loob?"

"Hindi ko nakita eh."

"Sige. Salamat na lang."

Nasan na ba yung lalaking yun?

Biglang may nagsalita sa likod ko, "I think i saw him talking to Jamie and Ynna'
s parents."

Nung haharap na ako para magpasalamat, "Cyriel?!"

"Surprised? I'll take that as a welcome home. See you around, pare."

See you around? Ibig sabihin, he'll be staying here for good?

What can be more complicated than this?!

----------------Nof's Point of View

"Ang bagal bagal mo kasing kumilos. Late na tuloy tayo!" Pano ba naman kasi, ang
tagal tagal magbihis ni Kim! Nakakainis.

"FYI, hindi naman party ang pupuntahan natin kaya bakit ka ba nagmamadali?!"

"FYI din, hindi nga party ang pupuntahan natin pero kung maka outfit ka, parang
party tong lamay ni Jamie." Tapos inirapan niya ako. The hell. Spoiled brat aler
t. Psh.

Habang naglalakad kami, may narinig kaming mga nagcchismisan. Haay. Hindi talaga
nabubuhay ang mga tga St. Claire's ng walang chismis.

"Narinig niyo na ba? Bumalik na daw si Cyriel!"

"OMG!! I want to see him na!"

Cyriel? Sounds familiar. San ko nga ba narinig yung pangalan na yun?

"Hey." Naputol yung pag iisip ko kung sino ba yung Cyriel na yun ng dumating si
Dave at Sara.

"What's with the face? Pareho kayong namumutla? Don't tell me nakakita kayo ng m
ulto?" Then we laughed. Nakita kaya nila si Jamie? Hahaha. Oops. Sorry, Jamie. R
est in peace.

"Yeah. We saw ghosts." Sara said.

"Ghosts from the past."

----------------Dana's Point of View

"I should go now, Andy and Dana. My daughter already arrived from New York." The
n Mrs. Henares went out.

Hindi pa rin ako makagalaw sa kinatatayuan ko. Come on, Dana! Si Cyriel lang yun
! What's with suddenly being so nervous?! He's just a part of your past! Ex mo l
ang siya. EX = TRASH. Pinaglumaan. Pinagsawaan. So just get it over with.

"Let's go." Sabi ni Andy.

"Ano? Kakadating lang natin tapos gusto mo umuwi na tayo agad?"

"Kaya lang naman tayo pumunta eh para kausapin yung parents ni Jamie di ba? Naka
usap na natin sila so i think we should go now."

"Maaga pa, Andy."

Bigla siyang tumayo, "Bakit ba ayaw mong umalis dito? Gusto mong makita si Cyrie
l?!" Sinisigawan niya ako.

"Eh bakit mo ba ko sinisigawan?!"

"Hindi kita sinisigawan!"

"Eh anong tawag mo sa ginagawa mo?!"

Shoot. Nice. Very nice. Nag aaway na agad kami.

"Sige, lumabas ka na dun. Pumunta ka na sa Cyriel mo." Tapos bigla siyang tumali
kod tsaka naglakad paalis.

Hinabol ko siya tsaka hinawakan, "Ano ba kasing problema mo ha, Andrei Guzman?!"

"Wala akong problema." Tapos tinanggal niya yung kamay ko sa braso niya, "Uuwi n
a ko. Magpahatid ka na lang sa Cyriel mo."

Oh My. Nagseselos ba siya?

"Are you jealous?" Tapos naglakad ako at pumunta sa harap niya. Shet. Nagbblush
siya. Ang cute ^___^

"Ha? Bakit naman ako magseselos? Mas gwapo naman ako dun. Tss." Tapos tinalikura
n niya ako. Asus, nahihiya pang makita kong nagbblush siya.

"Okay. Hindi ka naman pala nagseselos eh, pupuntahan ko na si Cyriel dun." Grabe
, nasasabi ko na talaga ang pangalang Cyriel!! Dati naiiyak ako pag naririnig ko
yun eh. I'm already one step ahead! Way to go, Dana

Tapos naglakad na ako papalabas.

"Wag!" Sigaw ni Andy tapos nilapitan niya ako.

"Problema mo? Akala ko ba mas gwapo ka sa kanya?"

"Oo na. Alam ko namang mas gwapo siya sakin eh!" Kailan pa nakaramdam ng insecur
ity tong lalaking to? "Wala na kong pakielam dun. Pero please, wag ka ng lumapit
sa kanya.."

"Give me a good reason kung bakit ko gagawin yun?"

"Kasi nagseselos ako."

For real? Nagseselos at naiinsecure si Andy? Eh ang ego maniac niya kaya!

"Why are you even jealous, mister?"

"Dahil ex mo siya."

"Yun nga eh, ex ko siya. Past tense."

"Pero wala pang closure yung relationship niyo. Technically speaking, kayo pa di
n.." Nakayuko siya nung sinasabi niya yun. Pero totoo nga, walang formal break u
p na nangyari. Parang poof, wala na siya, wala na kami.

"Partly correct ka. Pero para sakin, wala na kami. Ni hindi niya nga ako hinayaa
ng magpaliwanag eh.."

"But you still love him.."

"I love you, Andy. Yun na lang ang panghawakan mo." Then i kissed him.

----------------St. Claire's

It's been five days since nailibing si Jamie. Things are going as planned.

"How long are we going to eat here, DK?!" Kim complained. Wanna know where we ar
e? Dito lang naman sa old library.

"Honestly, i don't know. Anyways, you're all free to go. I can handle." I said t
o them.

"Shut up. Alam mo namang hindi ka namin iiwan eh. But Dana, hanggang kailan ka b
a magtatago dito? Hindi mo sila kayang pagtaguan habang buhay." Nof said.

"Nasa iisang school lang tayo. Ikaw, si Ynna, si Cyriel, kami. We're all studyin
g here. It's inevitable that you will bump into each other sooner or later." You
heard it right. Dito na ulit nag aaral si Ynna at Cyriel. How happy can i get,
right? My ex-boyfriend and her hideous girlfriend right here in my school.

"That's why i'm doing safety measures, my dear best friend. And don't you think
it's a nice idea to eat here? Tignan mo, nagkakaron tayo ng bonding moments." I
sarcastically said.

"Yeah right. I better go, magsisimula na ang klase ko." Then we decided to go. M
agsisimula na din pala ang class ko. Acads. Acads. Acads freak.

As i was walking, napadaan ako sa cafeteria. And lo and behold, what a nice scen
e? Sinusubuan ni Cyriel si Ynna. What a sweet couple, right?!

Someone spoke behind me, "Jealous?"

"Of course not. Why would i when i have you all for myself?" Then i kissed Andy.

At the side of my eye, i saw Cyriel smirked at me while we're kissing.

I guess things change... And so is he...

Andy Guzman
calling...

Ano na naman ba ang kailangan nito? Ang aga aga pa eh. =___=

"What?! You better have a good reason for waking me up this early." I snared. Th
e hell. 9 am pa lang eh.

"Good morning, beautiful. 9 am na."

"I know, right? Bakit ka nga tumawag."

"Wala lang." Then i heard him chuckle.

"The hell, Andy. Are you possessed?" Kinikilabutan na ako kay Andy. Simula ng du
mating sila Cyriel, sobrang sweet. Define sweet? Flowers every morning, chocolat
es every afternoon, teddy bears every evening. Mabuti na lang at napilit ko siya
na itigil na yung pag hatid sundo sa akin. Kung makikita niyo lang yung bahay n
amin, pwede na akong magtayo ng flower shop at gift shop! Pasalamat siya at natu
tuwa si mama at papa sa kanya, not to mention na gusto siya ng maids dahil sila
ang kumakain ng chocolates na binibigay sa akin. The hell talaga di ba?!

"Naah. In love lang." See what i mean?

"Whatevs. Bye na nga. Ginising mo lang ako."

And when i was about to end the call--- "Wait!"

"What?!"

"May gagawin ka ba ngayon?"

Ano nga ba ang gagawin ko ngayon? Ah, may assignment kami sa Math102. Fashion de
sign tapos may higher math subjects kami. Kamusta naman yun? =___=

"May assignment ako eh."

"Ano'ng subject?"

"Math102"

"Ako na lang gagawa."

"Seriously, Andy? Gusto mo bang bumagsak ako?"

"Ang sama mo =___= Fine, papagawa ko na lang kay Dave. Sumama ka na sa akin?"

"Si Dave?"

"Yep. Na uno siya sa subject na yan eh."

"Tss. Bakit pinapasa mo kay Dave? Palibasa repeater ka sa subject na yun eh." Th
en i laughed. Unforgettable moment eh, si Andrei Guzman, bumagsak?! Eh halimaw k
aya yan sa Engineering Sciences.

"Oo na. Wag mo ng ipaalala. Distracted kasi ako nun eh. So, sasama ka na sa akin
?"

"San ba tayo pupunta?"

"Ewan." Tignan mo to, ang lakas mag aya tapos wala naman palang plano.

"Ewan ko sa'yo."

"Basta pupuntahan kita jan. Be ready before 11. Bye. I love you!" Call ended.

Wow. Hindi PA siya nanliligaw niyan, ha? Pano kaya pag nanliligaw na siya?!

Napilitan akong bumangon at maligo at magbihis. Sana naman worth it ang mangyaya
ri ngayong araw. Supposedly, matutulog lang ako dapat, pero dahil sa napakademan
ding na hindi ko naman manliligaw na si Andy, nasira ang plano ko.

Quarter to 11 ng dumating si Andy. At kasalukuyan akong nasa dining table kumaka


in kasama si mama at papa.

"Nice timing, Andy. Alam na alam mo talaga pag kumakain na kami." Sarcastic kong
sabi.

"Syempre. Approved naman ako kila Tito at Tita eh. Pati sinasabi sakin nila Mana
ng Lucing pag kakain na kayo." Tapos kinindatan niya yung mga maids tapos lumapi
t siya at nagkiss kay mama pati kay papa. Siya ang tunay na definition ng taong
feel at home.

"Oo naman, hijo. Ikaw lang naman ang makapagpapatino dito kay Dana eh." Yeah rig
ht.

Tapos umupo na si Andy at kumain kasabay namin.

"Kamusta ang thesis, hijo? Mukhang hindi ka naman nahihirapan at lagi kang nandi
to sa bahay namin." Pabirong sabi ni papa. Pati papa ko nabili na ni Andy =___=

Tumawa si Andy, "Si Tito talaga. Nahihirapan naman po ako pero syempre mas prior
ity ko ang anak niyo."

"Pero mas unahin mo ang pag aaral mo at jan nakasalalay ang future mo."

"Pero si Dana po ang future ko.."

O___o What the hell. He really said that in front of my father!!

Bigla namang tumawa sina mama at papa, "Eto talagang batang ito, puro biro."

"Hindi po ako nagbibiro, si Dana lang ang pumapasok sa isip ko pag future ko ang
pinag uusapan."

Oh God. Kill me now. Nahihiya ako sa pinagsasabi ni Andy.

"Kaya mo na bang buhayin ang anak ko?" Seryosong tanong ni papa.

"Opo. Ayon sa family lawyer namin, kaya kong mabuhay ng maayos buong buhay ko da
hil sa insurance ko, wala pa dun ang inheritance, wala pa dun ang share ko sa co
mpany, wala pa dun ang personal savings ko, at wala pa dun ang sweldo ko in case
na magtrabaho ako."

"Well then, kung mahal ka ng anak ko, i'm here to support."

What the hell?!

"Papa! Para namang pinamimigay niyo ako niyan! Mama, gusto na akong ipakasal ni
papa! Wala ba kayong gagawin? Gusto niyo bang magpakasal ang baby niyo?! At ikaw
naman Andy! Nababaliw ka na ba?!" Sunud- sunod kong sabi.

Biglang tumawa si Andy, "Grabe ka naman. Kaya ko lang naman sinabi yun para mapa

kita kina Tito at Tita na seryoso talaga ako sa'yo."

"Whatever. Tara na nga at baka kung anu ano pa ang masabi mo kila papa." Tapos h
inatak ko siya patayo.

"Hindi pa ako tapos kumain eh."

"Sa resto ka na lang kumain."

"Tss. Sige po, alis na kami ng anak niyo. Hindi pa nga ako sinasagot, under na a
gad." Tumawa naman sila papa tapos nagbbye na kami.

Pumunta muna kami sa coffee shop at baka sakaling matauhan na si Andy sa mga pin
agsasabi niya.

"Seriously, ano ba ang nangyayari sa'yo, Andrei Louie Guzman? Masyado ka yatang
sumasama kay Sara lately kaya kung anu anong ka cheesy-han ang nagagawa mo."

"Ayaw mo ba?" Seryoso niyang sabi.

"Hindi naman sa--"

"I'm trying my best."

"I know."

"Pero bakit parang hindi mo nakikita yung effort ko? Lahat ng nakikita mo puro n
akakainis."

"Andy, Andy, Andy.. Hindi naman ikaw yun eh. Hindi ka naman talaga mahilig magbi
gay ng flowers at chocolates, at never kang nagbigay ng teddy bears.."

"And?"

"And what i mean is that you don't need to pretend to be someone else para maipa
kita mo sa akin na mahal mo ako. Just be the Andy i know. It's more than enough.
."

"Dana.."

"Hmm?"

"I love you."

"I love--"

"Naah. Hindi naman ako humihingi ng response agad eh. Sabihin mo sa'kin yan kapa
g sigurado ka na na ako ang mahal mo." Then he smiled.

"Fine. Sinabi mo yan ha. Wag kang magrereklamo kahihintay."

"Grabe! Inaabuso mo na yung feelings ko."

"Whaever. Ubusin mo na nga yang kape mo."

After namin sa coffee shop, pumunta kami sa mall specifically sa NBS.

"Ano ba yan. Date ba talaga to?" Reklamo ni Andy.

"Tumahimik ka nga, may hinahanap ako eh. Tsaka wala ka namang sinabing date to.
So, hang out lang to technically." Tapos tinignan ko yung mga bagong libro.

"Fine. Tsaka ano ba yang hinahanap mo? Nandito naman ako, kung anu ano pa ang hi
nahanap."

"Save it, Andy. I've had enough of your pick up lines."

"Fine. Ano ba kasi yung hinahanap mo nga? Baka matulungan kita."

"13 reasons why i committed suicide."

"Tss. Akala ko naman kung anong importante."

"Shut up. Hindi naman kita pinapakailaman sa porn mo sa laptop ah."

Bigla siyang natahimik, "Pano mo nakita yun?!" Tanong niya. Hahaha. Namumula si
Andy. Parang bata lang eh.

"Nakita ko. Nasa kaloob looban ng folders."

"Papa- Baki- Ano?! Pano mo nabuksan yung laptop ko? May passcode yun ah!"

"Binuksan ko. AndyDana yung code. Ano ba yan. Ang dali daling hulaan eh." Then i
laughed. Nakakatawa talaga 'to. Parang batang inagawan ng lollipop.

"Kinikilig ka naman. Masyado ka ng nafflatter sa feelings ko."

"Yeah right. Hanapin mo na nga lang yung libro ko."

Tapos tumahimik na kami. Pero hindi namin nahanap yung libro kaya nag gala pa ka
mi Sa Fully Booked and luckily, nandun siya. (^___^)V

"Kain na tayo?"

"Yep. Gutom na ako eh."

Then kumain nga kami tapos naglakad lakad lang kami sa mall. Wala ako sa mood ma
gshopping eh. Tapos nakita ko sila.. sa rink.

"Gusto mo uwi na tayo?" Tanong ni Andy. Nakita niya kasi na nakatingin ako eh.

"Ano ka ba, okay lang ako."

"Sure ka?"

"Oo nga! Bakit ba kasi pinagpipilitan niyong lahat na hindi ako okay?! Ako yung
may alam kung ano yung nararamdaman ko! And let me tell you, i've moved on. So p
lease, quit telling me that i'm still in love with him kasi baka magising ka na
lang isang araw, in love na ulit ako sa kanya."

Nakatingin lang sa akin si Andy.

"I-I'll just go to the washroom."

Sorry, Andy. Sa'yo ko nabuhos yung galit ko. Masyado lang siguro akong nadisappo
int sa nakita ko. Akala ko kasi sa akin lang yung rink eh. Okay lang sa akin kah
it dalhin niya si Ynna sa kung saan saan, wag lang sa skating rink na yun. Tangi
na lang kasi! Doon siya nagpropose sa akin eh. Alam mo yung nakakagago?

Cyriel, I-I really hate you for breaking my heart and for continuously making me
feel miserable!

----------------Andy's Point of View

SI Cyriel at Ynna yun ah.

"Sure ka?"

"Oo nga! Bakit ba kasi pinagpipilitan niyong lahat na hindi ako okay?! Ako yung
may alam kung ano yung nararamdaman ko! And let me tell you, i've moved on. So p
lease, quit telling me that i'm still in love with him kasi baka magising ka na
lang isang araw, in love na ulit ako sa kanya."

I-I can't speak..

"I-I'll just go to the washroom."

Hindi ko na maintindihan. Gusto ko lang naman siyang tulungan eh pero bakit lagi
na lang siyang nagagalit sa'kin? Ano ba yung ginagawa ko para lagi siyang maini
s sakin? Ano ba yung mali sa akin?!

"Andy." That voice.

"What?!"

"What? Lumapit lang naman ako dito dahil nakita ko kayong nakatingin samin eh. A
kala ko may kailangan kayo sa'min."

"Alam mo, mas maayos nung wala ka pa eh. Bakit ka ba bumalik dito?!"

Hindi siya sumagot. He just shrugged his shoulders.

"Bumalik na lang kayo sa pinanggalingan niyo. Ako pa ang bibili ng ticket niyo.
Business class pa."

Tumawa lang siya. "Hindi ka pa din nagbabago, Andy."

"Same to you, Cyriel. Gago ka pa din."

"I'm glad na kilala mo pa din ako. At dahil kilala mo ako, siguro naman alam mo

na i don't intend to share what's mine." Then he left.

"Andy?"

"Dana."

"Sorry sa kanina." She said pero niyakap ko lang siya.

"Hey, may problema ba?"

"I love you."

Then i kissed her.

Cyriel, wala ka ng babalikan. Sisiguraduhin ko yan.

----------------Dana's Point of View

"Hey, girlfriends! Good morning!" I said. Ang saya saya ko ngayon. Ewan ko kung
bakit.

"Ang saya saya natin ngayon ah. Care to share?" Nof said.

"Ewan ko. I'm just happy. Hindi naman siguro kailangan ng reason para maging mas
aya di ba?"

"Tss. Abnormal ka talaga. Last week todo simangot yang mukha mo dahil kay Ynna a
t Cyriel, ngayon naman halos umabot na sa tenga yung ngiti mo." Sara said. Ang s
ungit nito. Nag away siguro sila ni Dave. Hahaha!

"Whatever. Nag away siguro kayo ni Dave kaya ang sungit mo. Smile, best friend.
Magkakaayos din kayo nun." Tapos naghum ako.

"Wow. So, positive thinker ka na ngayon?" Nof said.

"Maybe." Then i smiled again. Ano ba yan. Oo nga, mukha na akong abnormal kaka n
giti, kasalanan to ni Andy! Nahawa na ako sa pagiging Mr. Sunshine niya. =___=

"Fine. Masaya ako kasi ang dami ko lang realizations kagabi." I said tapos nakat
ingin pa din silang lahat sa akin, "Una, dahil okay ang family ko. Pangalawa, ok
ay ang acads ko. At pangatlo, kumpleto ang barkada."

"Nice try, Dana. Ano nga? Spill." Sara said. Ano ba yan. Eto ang mahirap sa best
friend eh, alam na alam pag may tinatago ka.

"Fiiiine. Pumunta kasi kagabi si Andy sa amin--" Bigla namang kinilig si Kim. Mi
nsan talaga iniisip ko na may crush to kay Andy.

"Eeep! Ang sweet talaga ni Andy!!" Sigaw niya.

"Lumalabas na naman yung pagiging fangirl mo kay Andy, Kim." Sabi ni Nof. Natawa
lang kami ni Sara. Aso't pusa talaga tong dalawa.

"Gusto niyo ba talagang malaman o mag aaway na lang kayo?" I said after naming t
umawa. Tumahimik na sila kaya pinagpatuloy ko na, "As i was saying, pumunta si A
ndy sa bahay namin kahapon. Tapos nagulat ako kasi nandun din yung parents niya.
Grabe! Akala ko tototohanin niya yung sinabi niyang papakasalan niya ako. Munti
k na akong magpanic. Buti na lang magpapaalam lang pala siya sa parents ko na ma
nliligaw siya officially."

Hindi sila nagsasalita. Nakatulala lang sila.

"Girl friends, yoohoo?"

"Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah! OMG! Ang sweet ni Andy!" Kim said. The ultimate fangirl.

"Lucky girl. Seryoso talaga si Andy." Nof said.

"Pag nag emote ka pa sa Cyriel na yan at hindi mo sinagot si Andy, kakalimutan k


o na best friend kita!!" Sara said.

O-kay? So, pressured na ako, ganun?!

"Grabe. Grabe lang. Lahat kayo nagsasabi na kailangan kong sagutin si Andy." Si
mama, si papa, ngayon pati sila?!

"Dana, Dana, Dana. Andy's the perfect guy. Mayaman, matalino, gwapo, mahal na ma
hal ka, medyo manyak nga lang. Pero keri lang yun." Wow. Talagang keri lang yung
pagiging manyak niya.

"Alam mo, nag usap na kami ni Andy at sabi niya, mas gusto niya na sagutin ko si
ya pag sigurado na ako na siya talaga yung mahal ko."

"What?!" Reaction nilang lahat.

"What?! Grabe naman kayong maka react. Tsaka okay na din yun. At least---"

"Tell us, mahal mo pa ba yung gago mong ex?!" Sabat ni Sara.

"O-of course not!!" I said.

"You're stammering, Dana. So it's confirmed, you're still in love with that stup
id ex of yours.."

Wow. Lahat talaga sila siguradong sigurado na in love pa din ako dun, eh ako nga
sa sarili ko hindi ko alam..

"Stop it, Sara. Hindi na ako natutuwa." I seriously said.

"Sa tingin mo natutuwa din kami?!" Sara said.

"Look, Dana. Kaibigan ka namin pero kaibigan din namin si Andy.. Kung mahal mo p
a talaga yung ex mo, hindi ba parang pinapaasa mo lang si Andy?" Nof said.

"Ikaw, Kim, may sasabihin ka din ba?" I sarcastically said.

"..."

I stood up, "Sara, Nof, Kim, para sa ikatatahimik niyo, hindi ko pinapaasa si An
dy. Alam niya yun."

"Are you sure?" Kim said.

"Never been this sure."

"What if papunta dito yung ex mo na parang gusto ka yatang kausapin?" Kim said.

"Asa naman. As if kakausapin ako ng---"

I wasn't able to finish what i was saying because, "Let's talk."

Oh God.

----------------Sara's Point of View

"Let's talk." Wow. Tinatanong ba talaga niya si Dana o inuutusan? Grabe. Nawala
lang siya, yumabang na ng sobra. Iba talaga ang epekto ng Amerika.

"Ang kapal talaga ng---"

Hindi ko natapos yung sasabihin ko kasi, "Look, Sara. Gusto ko lang kausapin si
Dana. Don't make this a big issue."

"Look, too, Cyriel. Mukha bang gusto kang makausap ni Dana?!" I hissed. Nakatula
la lang si Dana. Kawawa naman ang best friend ko, apektado pa din sa @#$%%^ niya
ng ex!

"It's urgent. 5 mins lang to." Tapos nilagpasan niya ako at pinuntahan si Dana.

"Let's talk." Sabi lang niya tapos lumakad siya at----

"DANA!!" I shouted. "Bakit ka sumusunod sa kanya?!!!"

"I-I can handle, Sara. Mag- uusap lang naman daw kami eh.." She said tapos sinun
dan niya si @#$%^&*

Oh My God!! Ano ba yung sinasabi niyang hindi niya pinapaasa si Andy?! Joke ba y
un?!

"Ang gwapo niya pala sa malapitan.." Sabi ni Kim.

I smirked, "Yeah, right. Gwapong impakto. May he rott in hell."

Nakita kong pumunta sila sa CPark, ano kayang pinag uusapan nila??

"Ano ba yung sasabihin mo?" Tanong ko sa kanya. Nandito kami sa CPark, buti na l
ang maaga pa kaya walang pang masyadong tao. Baka kasi kung ano na naman ang sab
ihin ng mga tao. Not that i care, pero masayado nang madaming issue sa buhay ko,
ayoko ng dagdagan.

"Nothing in particular. Gusto lang kitang makausap. Kamusta na?" Then he stared
intently into my eyes. I-I feel--- Shut up, Dana! For once, use your brain!

"I'm good, i guess."

"I can see. You look different." Then he examined me.

"Are you finished checking me out?" I sarcastically said.

"Not yet." Then he examined me again, "You really look different now, Dan." Then
he paused. Naaalala pa din pala niya yung tawag niya sa'kin.. "But then, you're
still the same."

I look different at the same time, I still look the same? Mahilig pa din siya sa
riddles niya.

"I'll take that as a compliment."

"Okay."

"Yun lang ba? Aalis na ko, may gagawin pa kasi ako eh." I said. Sa totoo lang, n
aiilang kasi ako. Nahihirapan na akong magmukhang normal sa harap niya. Soon, I'
ll lose my cool. And i won't let that happen. I won't take the chance na magmukh
ang tanga sa harapan niya.

Nung papatalikod na ako, "Wait."

"What? Kung may sasabihin ka talaga sa'kin, pakisabi na please. I'm a busy perso
n." Pero nakatalikod pa din ako

"I would appreciate kung haharap ka." Pero hindi pa din ako humarap, i don't to
look at him. "Fine. As you know, malapit na ang birthday ni Ynna---"

Napaharap ako bigla, "Pardon?!"

"September 13."

"Ano'ng pakielam ko?!" I shouted. Ano ba ang nagawa ko at ayaw akong tantanan ng
mga Henares na yan?!

"Ynna requested that---"

I interrupted, "So messenger ka na niya ngayon?!"

"Look, pwede bang patapusin mo muna ako?"

I didn't answer so he continued talking, "Malapit na ang birthday niya at gusto


niyang ikaw ang gumawa ng gown niya---"

"Ano?!" I shouted. Loud. Wow. The nerve of that Henares!! "Ang kapal din naman n
g mukha mong sabihin yan!!"

"Please be considerate, for once."

"Damn you, Perez! Ako pa talaga ang kailangang umintindi?!"

"Bakit mo ba ako sinisigawan?!"

"Paanong hindi kita sisigawan eh nakakagago ka na eh!" My eyes started to water.


Naiiyak ako sa inis!

"Ano bang masama sa sinasabi ko? Fashion design student ka tapos ayaw mong gumaw
a ng damit?"

"Eh bakit ako?! Ang dami daming designer jan!"

"Ikaw ang gusto niya eh."

"Then tell her to fuck off. Wala akong pakielam sa kanya." Then i turned my back
. That ass! Ang kapal lang talaga ng mukha niyang sabihin sa'kin yun!

"Ano ba ang gusto mo? Say your price."

Napaharap ulit ako, "What?" Then i paused, "Mukha bang nangangailangan ako ng pe
ra?!"

"Then what do you want?"

Ano nga ba ang gusto ko?

"Say it."

"Mag sorry ka sa'kin."

"What?" He looked confused.

"You heard it right. Magsorry ka."

"And why would i do so? Wala akong kasalanan." May kasalanan ka! Sa akin!

"Then so be it. Maghanap ka ng designer niyo." Tumalikod ako at naglakad.

"I'm sorry." He said.

Hindi ko kayang humarap. Damn this! Bakit ba ako naiiyak?!

"O-ok." I said. Then naglakad ako palayo. Tangina naman, Dana! Stop crying!

Cyriel, mahal mo ba talaga si Ynna para lunukin mo yung pride mo at magsorry ka


sa'kin.. Ta-talaga bang wala na?

----------------Ynna's Point of View

"Mom, tapos na akong mag debut. I'm turning 20, for Christ's sake! No need to th
row a party." My god. Gustong maghanda ng parents ko.

"I know. Pero we want the best for you, Ynna. We'll do everything for you.. Ever
ything to make you happy.." Then my mom hugged me.

"Okay lang ba talaga? Kakalibing lang ni Jamie, mom.."

"I'm sure this will make your sister happy, Ynna.." This i'm not sure of. Naging
masama akong kapatid kay Jamie. I treated her really bad. I've been so immature
kaya ko nagawa yun. If only i could turn back time, gagawin ko lahat para magin
g mabuting ate sa kanya. Pero it's too late, wala na siya..

"I hope so, mom. Sana maging masaya si Jamie.. Hey, stop crying, mom. Baka isipi
n ni Dad na inaaway kita."

"You're so mature now, Ynna. I must thank Cyriel."

"You really should, mom. He's the best man i could ever ask."

"I know. He's been very patient with you." He really is. And i'm really thankful
that he stayed by my side.

"Alam ba ng parents niya na hindi kayo nag aaral habang nasa States kayo?" You h
eard it right. Hindi kami nag aral sa States.

"I don't know, mom. Hindi ko pinapakailaman ang tungkol sa family niya.."

"Alright. By the way, sinabi ko na kay Cyriel ang tungkol sa party."

"Eh?"

"Yup. Nakaplano na lahat. And guess kung sino ang gagawa ng gown mo?" Then my mo
m smiled.

"Rajo Laurel? Monique L.?"

"Nope. She's your friend."

"Sino?"

"Si Dana."

"What?!"

"Yes, baby. Kinausap na ni Cyriel si Dana and she already said yes." Nag usap si
Cyriel at Dana?

"Nasan si Cyriel?"

"I don't know. Call him."

Then i went out. Nag usap na sila. Hindi ako kinakabahan, i trust Cyriel. Alam k
ong hindi niya ako iiwan.. Hindi niya ako kayang iwanan.. That thing i'm sure of
.

-----------------

Sara's Point of View

"Kim, Nof, ang tagal ni Dana." Kanina pa sila umalis nung impakto na yun ah. Ano
na kaya ang nangyari?! Pag talaga nalaman ko na may ginawa siya kay Dana, naku!
Ilalaga ko yung impaktong yun!!

"Oo nga eh. Hanapin na kaya natin?" Sabi ni Kim.

"Okay ka lang? Magsstart na kaya yung klase mo, kami na lang ni Sara." Sabi ni N
of. Baka mag away na naman tong dalawang to. Tss.

"Eh di umabsent. Mas mahalaga naman si Dana dun eh."

"Asa naman. Ang sabihin mo, kahit umabsent o pumasok ka, wala namang pinagkaiba
kasi bumabagsak ka din naman." Grabe!! Foul na yun! Hahaha!

"Whatever, Nof."

"Shut up na nga. Tara na at hanapin na natin si Dana."

Nagpunta kami sa CPark pero wala siya dun. San kaya nagpunta yun?

"Baka nasa Old lib?" Sabi ni Kim.

"Alam mo, minsan talaga gumagana yung utak mo!" Sabi ni Nof. Grabe. Hindi matata
pos ang araw ng hindi niya iniinis si Kim. No wonder, magbest friends sila.

Then nagpunta nga kami sa library. Wala namang tao eh.

"Wala namang tao eh. Baka umuwi na yun."

Tapos naglakad na kami palabas pero, "Guys, naririnig niyo ba yun?" Sabi ni Nof.

"Wala naman kaming naririnig ah. Guni guni mo lang yun."

"Meron nga. May umiiyak kaya."

"21st Century na, hindi na uso ang multo. Tss."

"Tumahimik ka nga, Miranda." Tapos naglakad si Nof pabalik sa loob ng lib. No ch


oice, sinundan na namin siya baka kasi kung ano ang mangyari dito.

Lakad lakad lakad.

"Aha! Dito yung tunog---" Lumapit siya tapos, "Dana?!"

Napatakbo tuloy kami ni Kim.

Tama nga si Nof. Andun si Dana sa gilid ng shelf, umiiyak. Mukhang wasted. @#$%^
&* talaga yung Cyriel na yun!!

"Anong nangyari sa'yo?!"

Hindi pa din siya nagsasalita kaya, "Jan ka lang, pupuntahan ko lang yung gunggo
ng na yun!"

Tumayo na ako pero, "Wag, Sara.." Sabi ni Dana pero sobrang hina ng boses niya.
Medyo nanginginig pa nga eh..

Umupo kami sa harap niya, "Bakit ka umiiyak?"

"Mababa yung grades ko sa exam eh.."

"..." Hindi kami nagsalita. Obvious naman na nagsisinungaling siya.

"Ano ba ang lamang sa akin ni Ynna?"

"Mas bitch siya. Yun lang."

"Ano pa?"

"Mas bobo siya sa'yo. Teka lang, naiinsecure ka ba sa babaeng yun?!"

"Ka-kasi, kanina nung nag uusap kami ni Cy---" I interrupted her.

"Wag mo nga siyang tawaging Cy. Cyriel. Yun ang pangalan niya. Wag ka ngang mag
nickname basis."

"Cyriel. Tapos gusto niya ako yung gumawa ng gown ni Ynna---"

"What?!" Sigaw naming tatlo. The nerve of that guy! Sadista ba siya? Gustong gus
to niyang nakikitang nasasaktan si Dana ah!

"Tapos sabi ko ayoko.."

"Mabuti naman!"

"Pero---"

"Don't tell us na pumayag ka! Sasabunutan kita!" The hell! Tanga't kalahati tala
ga tong si Dana kung pumayag siya!

"Sabi ko sa kanya, magsorry siya sa akin para pumayag ako.."

"Tapos?"

"Nagsorry siya.." Tapos umiyak siya ulit. No. Make that hagulgol.

"Eh bakit ka umiiyak? Papayag payag ka tapos iiyak iyak ka jan. Sabi naman namin
sa'yo, wag kang makipag usap sa unggoy na yun. Nawawala yung utak mo pag siya y
ung kausap mo eh. Parang ikaw si Supergirl tapos siya yung kryptonite mo. Dapat
siyang iwasan."

"Hindi naman yun yung iniiyak ko eh.."

"Eh ano?!"

"Yung nagsorry siya sa akin.."

"Bakit?" Sabay ulit naming sabi. Baliw baliw talaga to. Manghihingi siya ng sorr
y tapos iiyak iyak.

"Eh kasi... Kilala ko si Cyriel... Hindi siya basta basta humihingi ng sorry. Mi
nsan kahit kasalanan niya hindi siya magsosorry."

"Tapos?"

"Can't you see?! Mahal na mahal niya si Ynna to the point na ibababa niya yung p
ride niya para sa kanya!" She shouted.

"Eh ano bang pakielam mo dun?"

"..." Hindi siya sumagot.

"Hindi mo ba nakikita na ibinababa din ni Andy yung pride niya para sa'yo? Hindi
mo ba talaga nakikita yun o nagbubulag bulagan ka lang? Puro pride ni Cyriel an
g nakikita mo eh."

"..." Hindi pa din siya sumagot. I'll take this opportunity para lagyan ng sense
ang utak ng babaeng to.

"Bakit nga ba iniiyakan mo yun? Kung tutuusin, halos hindi nga naging kayo eh. G
ano ba kayo nagtagal? Isang araw? Ni hindi kayo nakapag monthsary, ni hindi week
sary. Daysary lang, Dana! Isang araw lang! Sinisira mo yung buhay mo para sa isa
ng araw na yan!"

Umiiyak pa din talaga siya. Unggoy talaga yung lalaking yun. Nakakainis! Argh!

Kinuha ko yung cellphone ko tapos tinawagan ko si Dave, "Send mo sakin yung numb
er nung unggoy mong kaibigan.. Sige. Bye. Love you."

Nung natanggap ko na, idadial ko na dapat yung number niya pero pinigilan ako ni
Dana..

"Wag.. Gagawin ko yung gown."

"Ano?!" Hindi ko talaga siya maintindihan!

"I need this, Sara. For myself. Baka kung sakaling makita kong mahal niya talaga
si Ynna, i'll learn to let go."

Hay, Dana. Ikaw lang ang masokistang kilala ko. Gustung gusto mo talagang itortu
re ang sarili mo.

----------------Andy's Point of View

"Nagkausap na kayo ni Cy, Andy?" Tanong sa'kin ni Dave. Nandito kami sa bahay ni
la. Tambayan na ng barkada dito eh.

"Yeah. Kahapon."

"Anong pinag usapan niyo?"

"Old stuffs."

"I see. Si Dana pa din." Then he sighed. Saming tatlo, si Dave ang pinaka mature
. Hanggang possible, ayaw niyang may nag aaway, lalo na kung babae ang dahilan.
Masyado daw mababaw.

"Look, Dave. From the start, alam niyang gusto ko si Dana pero anong ginawa niya
?"

"Tapos na yun, Andy. You already have Dana now. Can you just both forget the pas
t and start again? Sayang yung friendship, pare. 7 years, Andy. 7 years."

"Di mo naiintindihan, Dave. Sinabi niya sa'kin na babawiin niya si Dana. That as
s. Ang kapal lang talaga ng mukha niya."

"But technically, they're still together. May point siya, Andy." Alam ko. Kaya n
ga mas nahihirapan ako eh.

"Wala akong pakielam. Besides, may Ynna na siya. Magsama silang dalawa."

"Yeah. Ynna Henares. Naniniwala ka ba na sila talaga?"

I nodded, "Hindi sila nag aaral nung nasa States sila, Dave. Ano sa tingin mo yu
ng ginagawa nila dun? Nagjjack and poy?"

Pero hindi pa din kumbinsido si Dave, "You really think so? Ang alam ko kasi aya
w na ayaw niya sa babaeng yun eh. Halos ayaw niya ngang tignan dati eh."

"Things change, Dave. Mas mabuti kung sila na talaga."

Sana sila na talaga. Sana talaga.

31st Chapter

Kaya mo 'to, Dana! Si Ynna lang yan. Tss. Ang dakilang haliparot. Talagang pinan
indigan na niya yung tawag ko sa kanya.

"Baby, pwede ka namang magbackout, magpapadala na lang ako ng designer dun. Mara
mi namang magagaling na designers sa FHF, you don't need to stress yourself.." S
abi sa'kin ni mom. Alam niya kasi yung tungkol samin ni Cyriel, including the th
ing with Ynna. Worried lang siya na baka hindi ko kayanin pag nakita ko si Ynna.

"Mom, i can handle this. Besides, mas magagaling ako sa mga designers mo noh." T
hen i forced a laugh.

"You don't need to brag about that, baby. Basta, if ever you wanna change your m
ind, i'm just a call away, alright?"

"Yup." Then i went near her and gave her a peck, "Alis na ko. Be back probably b
efore lunch."

I drove to Forbes Village. Binigay ni Cyriel through Dave yung location. Ayaw ko
kasing ibigay yung number ko sa kanya kaya sabi ko, lahat ng kailangan niyang s
abihin, padaanin na lang niya through Dave. Immature? Not. Just being cautious.

It took me about 30 mins. bago makarating sa mismong bahay nila. And what i you
expect? The bitch lives in a mansion. Literal mansion. The perks of being a gove
rnor's daughter nga naman.

After kong makipag usap sa maid nila through telecom, pinagbuksan na nila ako ng
gate and then i parked my car. And soon enough, papasok na ako sa bahay ng mga
Henares. Mga Henares. The curse of my life.

"Hija, sit down." Mrs. Henares approached me. Mrs. Henares pa din ang tawag ko s
a kanya. I don't like to drop the formalities. Afterall, siya pa din ang nanay n
i Ynna at Jamie. I shouldn't be too comfortable around her.

"No, thanks, Mrs. Henares. Where's Ynna? Maybe we can already start with the fit
ting." I formally said.

"Drop the formalities, Dana. Just call me Tita." Then she smiled. If in any inst
ances hindi siya ang nanay nung dalawang yun, i would be glad to call her Tita.

"No, i insist. Besides, i'm here as a professional so i should act as one, right
?" Then i gave her a smile.

Siguro nakuha na rin niya na i'm no mood to socialize. Aish. Bad publicity to pa
ra sa business ng mom ko. Pero come what may. Naiinis ako eh.

Umalis na siya tapos pagbalik niya, "Nasa room niya sa Ynna. Second floor. 3rd r
oom to the right. I'm sure hindi ka maliligaw." Then she left.

So, pinapaakyat niya ako?! For real?!!

Naglalakad ako ngayon papunta sa room ni Ynna. Relax, Dana. As if naman papatayi
n ka niya. Baka nga ikaw pa ang pumatay sa kanya eh.

As soon na nandun ako sa harap ng kwarto niya, tama nga yung nanay niya, hindi a
ko maliligaw. Yung buong pinto niya ay painting ng sarili niya. She was wearing
pink floral dress and she looked so happy, so innocent. Pero i know better, mukh
ang lang siyang mabait. Mukha lang.

Hindi na ako kumatok kasi nakabukas naman yung pinto niya. Pagpasok ko sa loob,
nagulat ako. Puro white kasi yung loob ng kwarto niya. I was expecting na puro b
lack eh. =___=

"Dana.."

I took a step backward. Reflex. Mukhang nagulat siya sa ginawa ko.

She tried to smile, "Seems like i've been really hard on you para ganyan ang mag
ing reaction mo sa'kin." Then she bowed her head. Relax, Dana. Wag kang magpapad
ala sa paawa effect niya. Magaling lang siyang umarte.

"Glad you know." Then i smirked.

"I-I'm sorry for everything."

"Okay." I coldy said.

"Seryoso ako."

"Do i look like i'm kidding?" Then i gave her a cold stare.

"I'm really sorry." Then she took a step forward. Magkaharap na kami.

"Not as sorry as i am. Sorry for myself for meeting you." Then i turned my back
at her. Serves her right.

Bigla niyang hinawakan yung braso ko, "Look, Dana. Kung may magagawa ako para ma
wala yung galit mo, kahit mabawasan man lang, tell me. Gagawin ko."

Then i came to realize, isa lang naman ang gusto kong gawin niya. Yung umalis. L
umayo. Iwan sa'kin si Cyriel. Pero alam kong hindi niya gagawin yun. Not in this
goddamn lifetime.

"Tumayo ka lang jan and let me do my job." I said.

Kinuha ko yung mga gagamitin ko para sa pagsusukat. Medyo nanginginig pa yung ka


may ko habang ginagawa ko yun. Shet naman. Compose yourself, Dana. Wag ka ngang
paapekto sa haliparot na yan! Goodness!

"About the design, what do you want?" I asked her.

"It's up to you. I trust your taste."

"Tss." Then i smirked, "Wag kang magtaka kung all black ang isusuot mo sa party
mo." I mocked her. Come on, Ynna. Don't pretend to be all nice. I know that you
want to bitch with me. Show your true color.

"Black would be nice." Then she smiled. Again.

Aargh! Nakakainis!

Then suddenly, her phone rang.

"Excuse me, i'll just answer this."

Then she left. Pumunta siya sa balcony niya. Aish. Nakakainis naman. Curiousity
killed the cat talaga.

I roamed around her room hanggang sa nakarating ako sa side table niya. And fck,
it hurts. No, it stings.

Wanna know what i saw?

Picture ni Ynna at Cyriel. Sa Disney Land. Magkaakbay. Tumatawa. Masaya.

Oo na. Alam ko sasabihin niyo na naman sa akin na maarte ako, paasa, malandi. Pe
ro the hell! Wala kayong alam sa nararamdaman ko. You don't know how it feels. Y
ou all have now fcking right to judge me. Alam niyo ba kung gaano kahirap kumbin
sihin yung sarili mo na okay na, tapos na? Na ganyan talaga ang buhay, may dumad
ating, may nawawala. Shet lang! Kahit sabihin mo pa na naka destined talaga na m
akita ako ni Cyriel sa kama kasama ang bestfriend niya. Tangina naman! Ang saya
naman ng tadhana, ginawang mala telenobela ang buhay ko?!

Hindi ko namalayan, nagddrive na pala ako papunta kila Sara..

----------------Ynna's Point of View

Cy
calling...

"Excuse me, i'll just answer this." Then i left Dana and went to the balcony.

"Babe, where are you?" Yes. Babe is our endearment.

"Dito sa office ni Clarence. May pinapaayos lang sakin about sa business. Ikaw?
How was your day? Pumunta na ba jan si Dana?" He asked. Without any trace of-- i
don't know what to call it.

"She's here."

"I see. How's she?"

"She's cold. Alam ko naman na madami akong nagawang masama sa kanya pero i alrea
dy changed, right?"

"Yes. Nagbago ka na."

"But still, she's so aloof.. I want to be friend with everyobody.."

"She'll come around, alright? I know her, mabait yan. Soon, magiging magkaibigan
din kayo."

With that, i smiled. He really knows how to make me smile, "I know. I know you'l
l make a way para maging friends kami."

"Of course. Anything for you, Ynna." He said. Cyriel, hindi ko talaga pinagsisis
ihan lahat ng ginawa ko. With you by my side, it's all worth it.

"Sige, may pag uusapan pa kami ni Dana eh. Gotta go."

"Bye. See you later." Then i ended the call.

As i went back to my room, "Nasan na siya?"

Tinignan ko siya sa cr, sa walk in closet, where could she be?

Hanggang sa naglakad ako papunta sa kama ko, i noticed something broken..

Dana saw our picture.

I'm sorry, Dana. I know you still love him. But i need him. I need him more that
you do.

----------------Sara's Point of View

*knock knock*

Aish. Sino ba to? Kay aga aga eh.

"Ano'ng--- Holy Crap! Dana, umagang umaga may Tequila na dala?!" Sino ba naman a
ng hindi magugulat? 11 a.m. pa lang nag aaya na ng inuman?!

"I need someone to talk to." Then she smiled.

"Haay. Nakakaloka ka talaga, Dana. Pasok na." Tapos hinila ko siya papasok at si
nara yung pinto.

Umupo siya sa couch ko.

"Spill." I said.

"Inom muna tayo."

"Tumigil ka nga. Ang aga aga pa eh."

Bigla siyang tumawa, "Hindi nga? Tumatanggi ka sa alak? Ikaw ba talaga si Sara?"

"Yes. Ako si Sara. Best friend mo. Nandito para pakinggan ang drama ng buhay mo.
Besides, may abstinence ako sa alcohol ngayon so please cooperate." Then i smil
ed. Haish. Nakakaloka pag may ganito kang best friend. Mejo krung krung.

"Okay. Pero isang shot lang."

Wala akong nagawa kaya pinabayaan ko na lang.

After couple of minutes,

"..alam ko naman na wala akong karapatang magalit eh. Ni magselos hindi nga eh..
Pero *iyak* ang sakit sakit eh.. Alam mo yun? *iyak* ang tagal kong hinintay na
maging kami eh.. tapos.. wala! Tanginaa!!"

Tapos umiyak siya ulit.

"..am i making any sense?"

Tapos tumawa siya.

"..alam ko naman na naiinis ka na sa'kin. Believe me, naiinis din ako sa sarili

ko. Inis na inis.. Kung pwede lang bigyan ko ng amnesia yung sarili ko, bibigyan
ko.."

Tapos yumuko siya, pinunasan niya yung mukha niya.

"..on the second thought, i won't. Hahaha. Napaka indecisive ko ba? Hindi ko ala
m. Sara, nahihirapan na ako.. Paano niyo ako iintindihin kung mismong sarili ko
hindi ko maintindihan.. It sucks to be me."

"..pero know what? Dati galit ako kay Andy kasi siya yung may kasalanan eh.. Per
o now, i can't bring myself to hate him.. Maybe he did that out of love. He's st
upid for falling for me. So stupid.."

Uminom ulit siya, hindi ako nagsasalita. Nakikinig lang ako. Alam ko namang hind
i niya kailangan ng magsesermon sa kanya, she already had enough. Right now, she
just need someone who can listen to her..

"..alam mo dati, i dreamt of two guys fighting over me. Para kasing ang saya say
a ng feeling eh. Pakiramdam mo ang ganda ganda mo, ang haba haba ng buhok mo. Pe
ro ngayon, i'd rather not. I don't like the feeling. Hahaha! Dream on, Dana! Pin
ag aagawan? Dati yun, hindi ngayon. I had my time."

She mumble, "..siguro it's time to forget.. Help me, Sara.."

The next thing i know, tulog na siya.

Dana, i'll help you. We'll help you. But first, you need to help yourself.

----------------Dana's Point of View

September 13. Ynna's Birthday.

News Flash: It's been 2 weeks since nung Picture frame incident sa bahay ni Ynna
. And since then, i promised myself that i'll be better. I already stopped mysel

f from calling her names and guess what? Hindi ko na naiisip si Cyriel. Well, ye
s, naiisip ko siya paminsan minsan pero hindi ganun kadalas kagaya ng dati. Naka
tulong sa akin si Andy. Siya yung lagi kong kasama. Hindi siya napapagod sa akin
. And before i know it, baka kami na..

"Princess, tara na po." Then he flashed his smile.

"Princess your face. Corny mo po."

"Eh di dutchess."

"Tss. Oo na."

Then i went inside his car. I'll be seeing Cyriel again, and this time, i'm with
Andy. I know i can do this!

32nd Chapter

White dress with gold accents and flats. My outfit for Ynna's Party.

You figured it right, i'll be attending her party. Let me clear things, guys. Ye
s, i'll be there at her party but that doesn't mean na buddy buddy na kami. Let'
s just say na i'm trying my best to act decent. I mean, if Cyriel really loves h
er, i should learn to like her at least, afterall, barkada pa din naman si Cyrie
l kahit hindi namin siya nakakasama.

Siguro kung dati may 70% feelings ako para kay Cyriel, ngayon 30% na lang. Impro
ving? Yes. Thanks to Andy. And soon, sana maging 0% na yung feelings na yan at m
apalitan na ng 100% friendship. Afterall, nakakamiss din si Cyriel. Wag mag assu
me. I just want Cyriel back as a friend. I miss the old times. Yung kumpleto kam
i. Pero sana bumalik na siya, kahit pa sabihing kasama si Ynna, sige na, much as
i don't like her, i'll try. For the sake of friendship.

And another reason na pupunta ako ay dahil din kay Andy. Gusto kong ipakita sa k
anya na wala na akong feelings kay Cyriel, na kaya ko na siyang makita without f
uss. Yung parang normal na lang, no rushing of heart beat, no blushing, no malic
e. Afterall, he deserves that.

"Naks. Ganda naman ng dutches lumevel up ka na, Greek goddess na." Tukso ni Andy
. Thank God, balik na siya sa normal na Andy. Meaning, no more flowers, bears, a
nd chocolates.

"Matagal na akong mukhang goddess, kaya nga patay na patay ka sakin eh." Then i
rolled my eyes. Hahaha. Ang sarap ng feeling na walang hassle.

"Yeah right. If i know, pinakulam mo lang ako. Hindi na nga yata to normal eh, i
kaw lang lagi yung nasa isip ko. Haay, feeling ko talaga mambabarang ka eh." Tap
os mukhang seryosong seryoso siya kaya sinuntok ko siya sa braso.

"Kapal mo, kuya. Kung bastedin kaya kita?"

"Subukan mo lang.."

"Talaga.."

"Subukan mo lang.. Iiyak ako."

Then that's it, tumawa ako. "Hahaha! Ang epic mo talaga. Para kang bata." Tapos
lumapit ako tsaka niyakap siya. Wala lang, these past few days, lagi kong niyaya
kap si Andy. Ang sarap kasi ng feeling eh.

"Bata pala ha," Then he kissed me. Smack lang. "Kaya ba 'yong gawin ng bata?" Th
en he smiled.

I held his face to kiss him but, "Not so fast, Dana. Be my girl first."

"Aish. Ang pakipot naman nito." Then i tried to kiss him again. But not to my av
ail kasi umiwas ulit siya.

"Sagutin mo muna ako bago mo makukuha ang lips ko." Then he flashed his oh-so-ch
arming smile.

Natetempt ako lalo. =___=

"Andy naman eh, isang kiss lang." Then nagpaawa look ako.

Tapos kiniss niya ako. Smack ulit.

"Paasa ka naman eh. Yung matagal tagal naman." I demanded. Nakakainis kaya, para
ng tinatakam niya lang ako sa smack niya. Aish.

"Sinabi ko na di ba? Sagutin mo muna ko. Pag ginawa mo na yun, you can kiss me a
ll you want." Then he smiled seductively. Leshe ka, Andy!!

"Bwiset. Mag aabstinence na lang ako." Tapos i folded my arms then nagmaktol. Pa
rang bata? I know.

Bigla niya akong niyakap sa likod, "Touched naman ako dun. Akala ko sasabihin mo
maghahanap ka ng ibang lalaki eh."

Humarap ako sa kanya then carressed his face, "Kahit hindi kita boyfriend, loyal
ako sa'yo. And please lang, stop teasing me with your kisses. Alam mong mahina
ako jan." =___=

Then he lauhged, "At dahil natuwa ako sa sagot mo, may reward ako sa'yo.."

And when i was about to ask him about the reward, he grabbed me by my waist and
kissed me.

ASDFGHJKL. I miss this feeling.

Unconsciously, i wrapped my arms around his shoulders as he carressed my back wi

th his hands. I opened my mouth so he can deepen his kiss. And as he kissed me d
eeper, i grabbed his hair and pushed his head towards me. Oh God. I can feel And
y's tongue thusting inside---

"Ehem!" Sa sobrang gulat ko, naitulak ko si Andy kaya napaupo siya sa sahig.

"Ah-eh, Dad! Kanina pa kayo jan?" Then i forced a smile kasi medyo nauutal ako.
Shet naman. Panira ng moment si Dad. =___=

"Yes. Kanina pa." Wow. Straight forward much? Pwede namang sabihin niyang kakada
ting lang niya di ba? Spare me from humiliation, Dad!

"Ah-eh--"

Hindi ako nakapagsalita kasi, "Sir, alam ko nakapangako ako na hindi ako gagawa
ng kahit ano na sisira sa tiwala niyo. Pero kasi, your daughter seduced me." =__
_=

Buffering..

Buferring..

Buffering..

What the eff?!

"Hoy! Ano'ng i seduced you? Kapal mo oy!!" I shouted tapos pinagpapalo ko yung b
raso niya.

That ass! Sabihin daw ba yun sa harap ng tatay ko?! Sa H-A-R-A-P ng T-A-T-A-Y ko
?!

"Hahaha!" Biglang tumawa si Dad, "Kayo talagang dalawa, Dana, hija, kailan mo ba
sasagutin 'tong batang to? Gustong gusto ko ng maging anak to eh."

Tapos lumapit si Dad at inakbayan si Andy. Sige na, si Andy na ang lovable. Laha
t na lang gusto siya. =___=

"Eh di ampunin mo na lang."

"Pwede din," sagot ni Andy, "Pero magkakaroon tayo ng incest." Tapos tumawa siya
tapos tumawa din si Dad. Kfine. Talo ako. /wrist

"Fine. Dad, pupunta na kami sa party."

"Sige, take care and enjoy, kids. Walang , monkey business."

"Dad naman!" Then he laughed and i kissed my dad.

Inside the car:

"Aray, aray!" Sigaw ni Andy. Pinaghahampas ko siya.

"Walangya ka! Lagi mo na lang akong pinapahiya sa tatay ko!" Tapos pinagpapalo k
o pa din siya pero tawa lang siya ng tawa.

Nung napagod na ko, "Anong ngini ngiti ngiti mo jan?!" I asked. Mukhang tanga ka
si, nakangiti.

"Wala lang, ngayon lang kita nakitang masaya ulit eh. Welcome back, Dana." He sa
id with a big smile on his face.

"Glad to be back." I, too, said with a smile.

Ynna's Party:

"Smile!" I said. Nasa photo opt kasi kami ngayon. Nyehe. Ang saya talagang magpa
picture. ^___^

Sa bahay kasi nila ang venue, specifically sa garden. White and Gold ang motif n
ung party. Greek mythology. And hindi ko tinotoo na black ang gown niya, sumuno
d naman ako sa color code. Professionalism, guys. I earned 75K for that din nama
n. :)))

"Ayun pala sila Dave oh!" I said. Nauna na pala sila sa venue. Yep, invited din
sila. Actually, invited yata lahat ng batchmates namin sa St. Claire's. Oh well.
Rich kid naman eh.

"Sexy ng mga girls ko ah." I beamed. The hell. Ang gaganda nila. I'm so proud of
them. *Fake tears*

"As if. Naku, umupo ka na nga dito." Sara said.

"What's with the smile? Ayie, siguro may ginawa kayo sa sasakyan noh?" Kim asked
?

Natahimik naman ako. Si Kim talaga oh, napansin pa yun!

"Oo nga noh. May smudge pa ng lipstick si Andy! Hahaha" Sabi ni Nof.

Medyo nagblush pa ako kasi totoo nga. Oh God. Bakit hindi ko napansin yun??

Tapos nun, walang katapusang kwentuhan. Akala mo isang taon kaming hindi nagkita
eh noh? Hahaha. Srsly, i love them. Hihihi.

"Hoy. Spaced out ka na naman. Batukan kaya kita?" Tignan mo 'to, ang brutal tala
ga. =___=

"I pity you, Dave." Bigla namang kumunot yung noo ni Sara, "Siguro isa kang batt
ered boyfriend noh? Ibreak mo na si Sara, i'll support you." I sympathetically s
aid. Seryoso yung mukha ko while i was saying that.

Biglang tumawa si Dave, "So glad to have you back, Dana. Namiss ko yung mga bana
t mo."

Nag sulk naman si Sara, "HoneyBabes, inaaway niya ako. Hindi ka naman battered b
oyfriend di ba?"

"Kind of." Sabi ni Dave kaya tumawa kaming lahat. Ang saya lang namin noh? I kno
w. We're awesome when we're together.

After couple of minutes, nagsimula na yung party. Syempre nagstart yung sa entra
nce ni Ynna. No, let me rephrase that, sa GRAND entrance ni Ynna.

"Ang ganda niya." =___= Sabi ni KIm.

Bigla siyang binatukan ni Nof, "Tumigil ka nga jan. Wag mo ngang pagnasahan si C
yriel. Yung ganda nga ni Dana, natalbugan eh, yung sa'yo pa kaya?" Pagkasabi niy
a nun, tawanan kami. Medyo nagtinginan yung ibang guests samin. Hahaha. Si Kim k
asi eh, deads na deads kay Cyriel. Cool naman ako dun. Gwapo talaga eh, anong ma
gagawa ko, di ba? Haha.

"Ang payat niya ngayon noh?" Sabi ni Sara, medyo tinignan ko ng mabuti si Ynna,
oo nga, ang payat niya ngayon.

"Oo nga. Mas bagay sa kanya yung dati niyang katawan, mukha siyang anorexic ngay
on eh."

Syempre pinag uusapan namin yun habang naglalakad si Ynna sa grand staircase, at
nung naratiing niya yung dulo, what do you expect? Syempre nandun si Cyriel, na
ghihintay.

"Bakit ka nakasimangot?!" Medyo iritadong tanong ni Sara.

"Grabe ka naman," Sabi ko, "Parang papatayin mo naman ako sa tanong mo.

"Baka lang kasi naiinggit ka kay Ynna dahil escort niya si Cyriel eh."

"Naiinggit nga ako," tapos tinaas ko yung kamay ko kasi magsasalita na naman dap
at si Sara, "Kasi hindi ako nakapag debut.."

Kasi naman, si Cyriel yung kasama ko di ba? Yung nasa amusement park kami with m
atching couple shirts. Masaya naman ako nung mga panahon na yun kaya lang, haaaa
y, gusto ko ding mag debut =___=

Hindi ko na sasabihin yung mga nangyari sa event proper kasi mabobore lang kayo.
Dun na sa speech ni Ynna.

"First of all, i would like to thank all of you for coming here. This party woul
d not be possible if not because of all of you.. To my parents.. Mom, you're the

best. Words cannot express how thankful i am to have you as my mother. God know
s how much i regret the times i've wasted because of my insecurities. But now, i
'll do my best to make it up to you. I love you, mom! Dad, you're the world's gr
eatest father.. Please continue to be a good and loving husband to mom and a res
ponsible governor. I love you, dad!"

Tapos umiiyak na siya. Medyo naninibago talaga ako sa kanya. Yan ba talaga ang n
agagawa ng America? Bumabait? Kung pumunta din kaya ako dun??

"To my sister, Jamie, ate Ynna's sorry.. I-i love you.."

Tapos hagulgol na siya. Naiiyak din ako. Masyado kasing sensitive yung topic eh,
lahat ng tao sa venue tumahimik..

"To Cyriel, thank you.. For always being there and staying by my side.. For bein
g strong for me.. I'm so sorry for all the things you sacrificed for me.. I-I lo
ve you.."

Tapos tumingin ako kay Cyriel, ngumiti lang siya. Di ba dapat mag i love you too
din siya? Hay, Dana! Mind your own business nga!!

Medyo humina yung boses niya, "To Dana, Dave, Andy, Sara," Nagulat kami. Kasama
talaga kami?!

"..Sana tanggapin niyo ulit si Cy sa barkada niyo.. He needs all of you.. Please
.." Yun lang yung sinabi niya tapos nag thank you siya at inannounce na kakain n
a.

Tinignan namin si Cyriel pero tumalikod lang siya.

"Guys?" Tanong ni Dave.

"What?" Tanong ni Andy kay Dave.

"It's about time na tanggapin natin siya ulit, don't you think?" Tanong ni Dave.

"Oo naman!" Sagot ni Kim. What do you expect? Forever crush eh. =___=

"Ok lang.." Sabi ni Nof.

"Ah, eh, bahala kayo." Sabi naman ni Sara.

"Kung ano si Andy, ganun din ako." Sabi ko. Di ba nga i'll consider Andy pag mga
gantong situations?

"So, Andy? What's your decision?"

"Papayag ako.. Kung sasagutin na ako ni Dana."

Oh-kay? Kailangan talaga may ganon?

"What?!" Tanong ko. Nakatingin kasi silang lahat sa akin.

"Dana.." Sabi ni Dave, "Sasagutin mo din naman siya di ba? Pwedeng ngayon na? Pa
rang mas pinaaga lang naman eh.."

Aish. Ang hirap tanggihan ni Dave. Ang cute cute niya. =___=

"Fine!" Sabi ko.

"Yes!!" Sigaw ni Dave at Andy.

"Ikaw ang sinagot? Ikaw ang sinagot?" Mataray na sabi ni Sara. Hahaha. Selos na
naman si best friend.

"Girlfriend na kita!!" Sabi ni Andy with twinkling eyes.

"Opo, sir. Pwede tumahimik ka na? Nakatingin silang lahat sa'tin oh."

So it's been decided, welcome back to the gang, Cyriel.

33rd Chapter

"Baby, gising na.. Nanjan na si Andy sa baba.."

Inalis ko yung comforter sa mukha ko tapos, "Sabihin mo mauna na siya kila Nof.
Wala pa kong tulog eh.." Tapos nagtaklob ulit ako.

Narinig kong umalis na si mom kaya natulog na ulit ako. Sobrang puyat ko kasi af
ter nung party ni Ynna, dumiretso kami sa bar ni Dave. Nagyaya kasi si Andy ng c
elebration dahil kami na daw tsaka si Dave naman gustong magcelebrate dahil baba
lik na si Cy sa grupo. Inaya ni Dave si Cy na sumama samin pero tumanggi daw kas
i sasamahan niya si Ynna. Okay lang naman samin since valid yung reason, birthda
y ng girlfriend niya. Syempre mas priority yun. Tsaka okay naman yung pagkakasab
i niya, 'Next time, Dave. Sasamahan ko pa si Ynna eh.' Yun yung exact words na s
inabi niya according to Dave.

After couple of minutes, naramdaman kong may umupo sa kama ko.

"Dana ko.. Gising ka na.."

Hindi ko siya pinansin kasi inaantok pa talaga ako =___=

"Dana ko.."

Dana ko talaga yung tawag niya sakin simula kagabi. Inangkin na niya ako. Magkak
a diabetes yata ako sa lalaking to eh. Hahaha!

Kanina pa niya ako tinatawag kaya nagsalita na ako, "2 hours. Let me sleep for 2
hours."

Narinig ko siyang nag sigh tapos, "Pasalamat ka--- Ayoko na ngang sabihin, lalak
i na naman yung ulo mo eh."

Tignan mo to. Nababaliw na talaga =___=

"Dave? Yeah. Mamaya pa kami dadating. Oright. Sige. Enjoy na kayo jan." Kausap n
iya siguro si Dave.

Biglang may naramdaman akong nakahiga sa tabi ko kaya napabangon ako ng wala sa
oras!

"Andy!! Wag mo nga akong manyakin sa sarili kong kwarto!"

Nagkamot naman siya ng batok, "Aish! Bakit ba napakadumi ng utak mo? Matutulog l
ang din naman ako eh." Tapos tumayo siya at naglakad palabas.

Dana naman! Bakit ang sama sama mo kay Andy? Boyfriend mo na yun! You should at
least learn to trust him!

Kahit antok na antok pa ako, hinabol ko siya, "Andy.."

"What?" Sagot niya habang nakatalikod.

"Sorry na.."

"Bakit ka nagsosorry? Wala ka namang kasalanan eh."

"Basta sorry na.. Tulog na tayo sa kwarto.."

"Dun na lang ako sa kotse matutulog. Gisingin mo na lang ako pag aalis na tayo."
Tapos naglakad na siya palabas.

Aish! First day na first day namin, LQ na agad. Nakakainis naman.

Bumalik na ako sa kwarto pero hindi ako makatulog. Nakokonsensya kasi ako eh. Ti
nawagan ko na lang si Sara.

"Hello?"

"Sara.."

"Bakit ganyan na naman yung boses mo? May problema ka noh?" Tanong niya.

"Eh kasi.." Hindi ko masabi, siguradong papagalitan na naman ako ng babaeng to e


h.

"Eh kasi?"

"Nag away kami ni Andy.."

"What?!" Sigaw niya, "Naku, Dana! For sure ikaw ang may kasalanan!" Tignan mo to
. Hindi pa alam, ako na agad ang pinagbibintangan.

"Fine! Ako nga! Eh kasi naman, tinabihan niya ako sa kama. Nagka nostalgia yata
ako. Naalala ko yung nangyari dati.."

Natahimik naman siya.

"Hindi mo naman ako masisisi di ba? Natatakot pa din kasi ako.."

"Hindi nga kita masisisi. Pero Dana, i think sapat na lahat ng pinakita ni Andy
para pagkatiwalaan mo siya.. Gusto mo bang ipaalala ko lahat ng ginawa niya para
sa'yo?"

Natahimik ako. Tinamaan yata ako.

"Una, kahit halos ipagtabuyan mo na siya, hindi ka niya iniwan. Pangalawa, nilig
tas ka niya nung dinrugs ka nung Briton na yun. Pangatlo---"

Hindi ko na siya pinatapos kasi tumakbo na ako palabas ng bahay.

Nakita kong nakahiga siya sa likod ng sasakyan niya tapos hindi nakatuwid yung p
aa niya kasi nga masakip lang dun. Kawawa naman ang boyfriend ko..

Binuksan ko yung pinto nung sasakyan then i went on top of him.

"Dana?" Sabi niya, nagulat yata siya kasi nasa taas niya ako.

Hindi ko siya pinagsalita kasi i kissed him.

"Sorry! Sorry kung ganito ako sa'yo.. Sorry kung lagi na lang kita sinasaktan. H
indi ko naman sinasadya eh.. Siguro sobrang insensitive lang talaga ako kaya ko
yun nagagawa. Sorry din kasi i speak before i think. Sorry kung nakakasakit yung
mga nasasabi ko sa'yo.. Promise, Andy, i'll be a good girlfriend. So please pat
awarin mo na ako.." I said while sobbing. I just realized how mean i was to Andy

. He had all the reasons to leave me pero hindi niya ako iniwan. I am really luc
ky to have him.

Pinunasan niya yung luha ko, "Baliw baliw ka talaga." He said while smiling.

"Hindi ka na galit sa'kin?"

"Hindi naman ako galit sa'yo eh. Always remember, hindi ko kayang magalit sa'yo
and don't ask me why kasi hindi ko rin alam kung bakit." He said while looking i
nto my eyes. Matutunaw yata ako =___=

"Thank you.. Promise magpapakabait na ako.." I said while raising my hand.

"Hindi mo naman kailangang magbago eh. I love you. I love everything about you.
Mahal ko yung pagiging masungit mo, yung pagiging abnormal mo, yung pagiging pik
on mo, yung pagiging baliw baliw mo, yung pagiging lasinggera mo, yung pagiging
palaaway mo, yung pagiging magastos mo, yung pagiging random mo. Mahal ko yun la
hat kasi lahat yung ay ikaw."

Hindi ako makapagsalita kasi naiyak na lang ako.

"Andy.. Thank
'yo. Hindi ko
ng ako sa'yo.
l do anything

you.. Hindi ko alam yung sasabihin ko kasi ang swerte swerte ko sa


alam kung ano yung nagawa ko nung past life ko para maging deservi
Maybe i saved Jesus before kaya ganitong kaswerte ako ngayon.. I'l
to make you happy.." I said while continuously sobbing.

He wiped me tears, "Wag ka ng umiyak. And i would really appreciate kung tatayo
ka na.." He said then i felt something hard.

Nagblush ako, "Sorry." Yun na lang yung nasabi ko. Kainis naman. Bakit nga ba ak
o pumatong sa kanya? Bobo ko talaga =___=

"Ikaw talaga," then he kissed my forehead, "Maligo ka na ang baho mo na."

"Ulol. Hindi ako mabaho no!"

"Tsaka magtoothbrush ka bago ka magspeech sa harap ko." He said while laughing.


That ass!

"Ang kapal kapal mo!!"

Bigla niya akong niyakap, "Si loves naman, joke lang. Alam mo namang kahit hindi
ka magtoothbrush hahalikan pa din kita." Then he kissed my neck. =___= Andy, an
g aga aga pa, inaakit mo na agad ako.

"Back off, loverboy. Maliligo lang ako." I said then i ran back inside. Mahirap
na, natetempt din ako.

After some time, bumaba na din ako. Naka shorts at tee lang ako. Gagala lang nam
an kila Nof eh. Barbeque party lang daw. Maisipan talaga ng mga kaibigan ko eh.

Pumasok na kami since pinagbilin na pala kami ni Nof sa mga maids nila. Nasa ent
ertainment room daw sila. First time ko sa bahay nila Nof. As usual, malaki. I m
ean, lahat naman ng bahay namin malaki since lahat kami eh ano. Well, maliban na
lang kay Sara pero ehem, papakasalan naman ni Dave yung luka lukang yun eh! Hah
aha!

Pagbukas namin ng pinto, nakarinig agad kami ng ingay.

"Aish! Umalis ka na nga jan, Kim. Mukha kang palakang sumasayaw." Sabi ni Nof.

"Heh! Magboyfriend ka na nga ng tantanan mo na ako!" Sabi ni Kim habang sumasaya


w sa harap ng xBox.

No offense pero.. Mukha nga siyang palaka. Hahaha!

"xBox, pause!" Sigaw ni Andy. Biglang huminto yung music kaya napatingin sila sa
amin. Wow, grand entrance much?

"So kailangan grand entrance talaga ang magboyfriend?" Tanong ni Kim.

"Bati na kayo?" Sabi ni Sara.

"Yep." I smiled tapos tinaas ko yung magka holding hands naming kamay ^___^

"Mabuti naman." Sabi ni Dave, "Since nandito na kayo, tara na sa garden nila."

"Eh? Naglalaro pa kayo eh." Sabi ko.

"Kanina pa kami naglalaro, pagod na kami." Grabe. Hindi ba tinatablan ng hang ov


er yung mga to?!

"Seriously, alam niyo ba yung salitang hang over?" I asked. Hanep lang sa energy
ang mga tao.

"Seriously, alam mo ba ang salitang aspirin?" Gaya sa akin ni Kim. The hell. Gan
yan ba akong kaarteng magsalita?!

After nun, bumaba na kami tapos nagbarbeque sila Andy at Dave habang kaming mga
babae, nagkwentuhan. And kwentuhan means chismisan.

"So, paano kayo nagbati?" Tanong ni Sara.

"Nag away agad kayo?!" Sigaw ni Kim.

"Kailangan talaga sinisigaw?" Sabi ni Nof.

"Whatever. Nagsorry ako. Ako naman kasi yung may mali eh.." I said.

"Mabuti naman. Babatukan talaga kita pag nagbreak kayo." Sabi ni Sara. Maka Andy
to eh. Mas kinakampihan niya si Andy kaysa sa akin na best friend niya. =___=

After nun, pinag usapan naman namin sila Kim at Nof. Pinipilit namin na magboyfr
iend na para hindi na sila mag away. Hahaha!

"Hay nako, gusto ko na din ng boyfriend no. Pero naghihintay lang ako." Sabi ni
Nof.

"Naghihintay. Sabihin mo walang nanliligaw sa'yo!" Sabi ni Kim sabay tawa.

"Whatever. Eh ikaw ba? May nanliligaw ba sa'yo?"

"Walang nanliligaw sakin kasi may boyfriend na ako." Sabi ni Kim habang nakangit
i ng nakakaloko. Nga nga na lang kami.

"What?! Kailan pa?!" Sabi naming tatlo.

"Chill lang. Last week lang."

"Grabe ka! Hindi mo man lang sinabi sa amin.." Sabi namin habang kunwari nagtata
mpo.

"Eh kasi naman, hindi pa ako sure kung kamin talaga kaya hindi ko muna sinabi."

"Eh, kwento ka na."

So ayun, habang nagpapakahirap magbarbeque si Andy at Dave, kami ay nagpapakasay


a. Haay, the benefits of being a girl nga naman.

"Sino naman yung malas na lalaki?" Sabi ni Nof.

"His name is Clarence. And fyi, hindi siya malas." Sabi ni Kim sabay irap.

Clarence? Sounds familiar. San ko ba narinig yun?

"Clarence?" Tanong ko.

"Clarence Perez. Yung family nila yung may ari ng shopping malls?"

Sabi ko na nga ba eh. Familiar talaga yung name niya.

"So, paano kayo nagkakilala?" Tanong ko. Wala na akong balak sabihin yung alam k
o. Bahala na siyang malaman yun. For sure naman matutuwa siya if ever na malaman
niya eh.

"Di ba nga yung daddy ko may ari ng architectural firm? Eh nagpapa design sila s
a daddy ko, tapos pumunta ako sa office ng dad ko kasi nagka problema sa card ko
. Sabi nung secretary niya nasa meeting daw dun sa office ni Rence kaya pumunta
ako dun. Nung pagpunta ko dun, wala naman sa desk niya yung secretary kaya diret
so na akong pumasok sa office ni Rence. Wala naman dun yung daddy ko, instead, n
akita kong nag aaway si Clarence tsaka yung girlfriend niya, yung model na si Ar
iza Domingo? Then ayun, pagpasok ko, napatingin silang dalawa sa akin. Tapos nag
salita si Ariza, siya ba? Tapos bigla siyang umiyak. Medyo nagtataka pa nga ako
sa nangyari kaya napatulala na lang ako. Biglang lumapit sa akin si Rence tapos
hinalikan ako! Grabe. Hindi ako nakagalaw nun. Tapos sabi niya kay Ariza, yes, s
he's my new girlfriend so if you'll excuse us? Sabi ni Rence. Tapos umalis si Ar
iza ng umiiyak habang nakatulala pa din ako."

Napatulala na lang kaming lahat. So ganon?

"Ang easy to get mo naman.." Sabi ni Nof.

"Whatevs. Inggit ka lang."

"So, ganun na lang yun? Kayo na?"

"Ewan ko. Kaya nga hindi ko masabi di ba? Pano ba naman. after umalis ni Ariza,
bumalik siya sa upuan niya tapos nagsign ng kung anu ano tapos hindi na ako pina
nsin. The hell lang di ba?!"

"Tapos?" Tanong namin. Grabe, ang intense lang ng lovestory ng gaga na to! Hahah
a!

"Ayun, after nun, hindi ko na siya tinigilan. Sinabi niyang girlfriend niya ako

eh, panindigan niya! Hahaha! Kung makikita niyo lang yung mukha niya, epic! Alam
niyo, kamukha siya ni Cyriel. Isa pa yun sa dahilan kaya ayaw ko siyang tigilan
eh, alam niyo namang crush ko si Cy. Pati magkaugali sila. Parehong masungit."
Tapos kinilig na siya. Haay, kung alam mo lang, Kim. Hindi lang siya kamukha ng
crush mo kasi kuya siya ng crush mo. =___=

Tapos nun, kumain na kami ng barbeque tapos walang katapusang asaran. Bigla kami
ng nagulat kasi,

"Guys.." Nakita namin si Cy.

O.o

NR kaming lahat, buti na lang alerto si Dave.

"Cyriel! Anong ginagawa mo dito?" Tanong ni Dave. Tanong din namin yan..

"Galing ako sa inyo, sabi nandito daw kayo lahat." Sabi niya habang nakatingin s
a akin?

"Bakit mo naman ako hinahanap?" Tanong ni Dave.

Tumingin na siya kay Dave, mabuti naman! "Gusto kasi ni Ynna na sumama kayo.."

"Hah?"

"Post birthday celebration sa Pansol. Aalis mamaya. All expense paid. Presence n
iyo lang ang kailangan."

"Eh? Bakit biglaan?"

"Kagabi lang niya naisip eh." So ganon? Impulse lang niya?

"Bakit kailangan kasama kami? I mean, pare, hindi naman kami close ng girlfriend

mo eh." Tama, Dave! Yan din ang naiisip namin.

"...Puro kasi kaibigan ni Ynna yung kasama eh.. Naisip niya na baka ma out of pl
ace ako kaya sumama daw kayo.." Sabi niya habang nakatingin ulit sa akin?

Lumapit si Andy sa akin tapos inakbayan ako. Possessive much?

"Kung sasama kayo, text niyo na lang ako.." Tapos tumalikod siya at umalis agad.

"Ano? Sasama ba tayo?" Tanong ni Dave, "Holiday naman ng Monday eh."

Sasama ba o sasama?

"Whoa." Yun na lang yung nasabi namin pagdating namin sa location na sinabi sa a
min ni Cyriel.

"Corrupt kaya yung tatay ni Ynna?" Tanong ni Sara.

"Huh?" Tanong naming lahat.

"Eh kasi, tignan mo naman, rest house lang to pero shet, mansion. I wonder kung
may ginagawa ding under the table transactions yung tatay ni Ynna."

Bigla namang natawa si Nof, "Sara, alam mo, kahit hindi governor ang daddy ni Yn
na, mayaman talaga sila. May ari sila ng iba't ibang plantations sa Davao at Buk
idnon. Ang lolo at lola niya, maraming investments sa iba't ibang multi-national

companies kaya wag mo ng pagdudahan yung daddy niya."

Tumango tango naman si Sara, "Okay. Pasok na tayo sa loob." Tignan mo tong babae
ng 'to. May 360 degree shift of mood eh.

Pagpasok namin sa mismong villa, wala si Cy o Ynna, may isang lalaki lang na lum
apit sa amin. "You must be Cyriel's friends?"

"You are?"

"Kill Henares, Ynna's cousin. She's already asleep so i'll be accompanying you t
o your rooms." Sabi niya sabay talikod.

"Tss. Ang hangin niya." Comment ni Nof.

"I agree." Sabay naming sabi ni Sara.

"Hindi kaya. Ang pogi niya." Sabi ni Kim sabay twinkle ng mata.

"Magtigil ka nga. Akala ko ba may boyfriend ka na?" Sabi ni Nof. Oo nga pala, 'b
oyfriend' niya si Clarence. Alam kaya ni Cy yun?

"Oo nga pala. Muntik ko ng makalimutan yung busangot na lalaking yun." Tawa nama
n kaming lahat. Alam na naming lahat na si Clarence pala na kapatid ni Cy ang ti
nutukoy ni Kim na boyfriend niya. Siya na lang yata ang hindi nakakaalam. "At da
hil may boyfriend na ako, immatchmake ko na lang kayo, Nof. Malay mo pag nagka l
ove life ka, mabawas bawasan na yung pang aapi mo sa'kin."

O_o ---- Reaction ni Nof.

"Bakit speechless ka? Ayieeee. Type mo si Kill noh?!"

"H-hindi ah! Hinding- hindi kaya! Ang kapal ng mukha mo!"

"Hahahaha! A strong negative is a positive. Type mo nga siya." Sabay takbo ni Ki


m. Tapos ayun, naghabulan na sila.

"Isip bata talaga yung mga yun." Sabi ni Andy.

"Okay lang yun, at least masaya sila." Sabay yakap ko sa kanya.

"Sabagay." Tapos kiniss niya ako sa noo.

Umakyat na kami sa kanya kanyang room assignments namin. Magkasama kaming apat n
a babae sa isang room. Magkasama naman si Andy, Dave, Cy, at Kill sa isang room.
Kasama naman ni Ynna yung dalawang pinsan niyang babae sa kabilang room.

"Haaaaaay." Sabay naming sabi pagkahiga sa kama. "Nakakapagod yung byahe. Pero g
usto kong magswimming."

"Bukas na, Dana. Tulog muna tayo."

"Tulog na kayo. Swimming muna ako. Sayang yung hype ko eh."

"Sige. Akyat ka na lang pagkatapos mo."

Tapos nun, kumuha na ako ng swimsuit ko. Sumilip ako sa room ng boys pero tulog
na si Andy at Dave, si Kill naman, may kausap sa phone. Si Cyriel siguro nasa ro
om ni Ynna.

Bumaba na ako sa pool tapos nagswimming na ako. Nakakatanggal talaga ng stress.


Mga 20 minutes din akong continuous lumalangoy nung umahon ako. Umupo ako sa edg
e ng pool.

"Sht. Nakalimutan kong kumuha ng towel. Pano ako aakyat." Sabi ko sa sarili ko.
Ang lamig pa naman kasi gabi na.

Bigla akong napalingon kasi may naglagay ng towel sa akin, "Cy?"

Tinignan niya lang ako.

"S-salamat."

Tumalikod na siya. Akala ko aalis na siya pero nagulat ako kasi umupo lang siya
sa swing. Tumayo ako tapos, "Pwedeng tumabi?"

Nagshrug lang siya ng balikat.

"Long time no talk, huh?"

Hindi siya sumasagot kaya tinanong ko siya, "Hanggang ngayon tahimik ka pa din?"

Hindi siya sumagot kaya sabi ko, "Sige, akyat na ako."

Tumayo na ako pero hinawakan niya yung braso ko,

"Dito ka lang, Dana..."

I froze.

"Do you love Andy?"

"O-of course."

"Do you still love me?"

"Huh?!"

Lumapit siya sakin, "Mahal mo pa ba ako?" Tanong niya.

I can feel his breathe on my neck.

"C-cyriel."

Bigla niya akong niyakap.

"I missed you."

"Joke ka ba?"

Lalo niyang hinigpitan yung yakap niya sa'kin.

I pushed him, "Alam mo ba kung ganong kahirap bago ko natanggap na wala ka na?!
Na wala na tayo?! Tapos ngayon kung kailan maayos na, okay na ako, babalik ka ta
pos sasabihin mo yan?!"

I started to cry.

"Ang sama- sama mo.." I said while hitting him.

"Bakit mo ba ako pinapahira---"

I didn't finish my sentence because he kissed me!

At first, pinipigilan ko siya. Fck. This is wrong. May boyfriend ako, may girlfr
iend siya. Andy trusts me.

I tried to stop him pero in the end, i kissed him back. I gave in..

He pinned me on the wall and kissed me. He enveloped me inside his arms while i
pulled his head to deepen our kiss. We shared the kiss that has haunted me for a
year..

We were both gasping for air. Magkadikit yung noo namin habang nakatingin kami s
a mata ng isa't isa.

"You still love me." He said with conviction.

"I love Andy.."

"But you love me."

"You have Ynna."

"But you love me."

"Bakit mo ba to ginagawa?"

"Because you love me."

"Fck you!"

Then he kissed me again.

"Dana, i'm doing this because you love me."

What do you want from me, Cyriel?!

"You're still mine, Dana. Still mine.."

Then he left me.

After that unfortunate event, iniwanan ko siya. Hindi ko talaga maintindihan si


Cyriel. Ano ba'ng gusto niya? Hindi siya naman yung nang iwan sa aming dalawa? S
iya yung hindi nakinig sakin tapos ngayon na okay na ako, na masaya na ako, eto
na naman siya..

"I saw what happened earlier."

Napatingin ako sa nagsalita sa likod ko..

"Kill?"

"You're Cyriel's ex girlfriend, right?"

Bakit niya alam yun? Kinwento ba sa kanya ni Cyriel? Close ba sila?

"I prefer to be called Dana and not Cyriel's ex girlfriend." I said with sarcasm
. Nakakainis. Yun ba talaga ang identity ko? Ex girlfriend niya?!

He smirked, "You're the same as my cousin. I wonder why you didn't get along ver
y well."

"Excuse me but being compared to your cousin is a BIG insult." I emphasized the
word big. Aish. Bakit ba nagiging bitch na naman ako? I'm a changed woman, right
? No hard feelings na dapat eh. Bwisit naman kasi tong Cyriel na to!

"Whatever." Then he stood up. Leche. Napapa english ako sa lalaking to!

Bago siya umalis, "You know, love is about experiencing pain for other's happine
ss or choosing happiness above other's pain. And in this case, you must choose w
hat's best for everybody." And with that, he left me.

O-kay? He speaks in riddles. But then, he has a point. I must choose what's best
for everybody. I'll stay with Andy.

After nung nangyari kagabi, pinilit kong iwasan si Cyriel. Pag nakikita ko pa la
ng na magkakasalubong kami, mag iiba na ako ng way. Malaki naman ang villa kaya
madali lang umiwas. Pag kakain naman, bibilisan kong kumain tapos didiretso na a
ko sa kwarto. In short, hindi ko din na enjoy yung supposed to be 'vacation.' Ha
los buong second day namin sa Pansol, iwas Cyriel mode lang ang ginawa ko. Salam
at lang talaga at hindi napansin nila Andy.

"Dana!" Sigaw ni Sara sa'kin.

"Wey?"

"Tara dito sa labas, may bonfire!"

"Sige, dito na lang ako. Tinatamad ako eh." Nakakainis naman. Gusto ko pa namang
mag bonfire ngayon eh.

"Aish, ang dami mong arte. Tara na. Uuwi na tayo bukas eh, halos hindi lumalabas
jan sa kwarto."

Sumama na ako. Baka kasi mahalata niya na umiiwas ako eh. Mahirap na, malakas pa
naman makaramdam tong babaeng to.

Paglabas namin, nandun na sila. Si Andy, Dave, Kim, Nof, Sara, Kill, yung dalawa
ng babaeng pinsan na hindi ko alam ang pangalan, si Ynna.. at si Cyriel.

"Beb, dito!" Tawag sakin ni Andy.

Sobrang nagguilty ako kaya pumunta agad ako dun at yumakap kay Andy. Saktong pag
lingon ko, nakita ko si Cyriel na nakatingin sa amin.

"M-may smores ba?" Tanong ko kay Andy.

"Meron pero nasa loob pa, gusto mo kunin ko?"

"Hindi, ako na lang. Babalik din ako." Tumayo na ako tapos pumasok sa loob. Sht.
Bakit ba nagkakaroon ako ng ganitong reaction? Konting tingin lang niya nagkaka
ganito na ako. Siguro kailangan ko ng closure sa unfinished business namin para
matahimik na ako.

Hindi ko kayang lokohin si Andy..

He deserves to be loved.

Kinuha ko yung smores tapos bumalik na ako sa bonfire. Nakita kong magkayakap si
Cy at Ynna. Pwede naman akong magselos di ba? Ex- girlfriend pa rin naman ako k
ahit papano..

"Okay ka lang? Namumutla ka oh." Tanong sakin ni Nof.

"Okay lang noh. Kulang lang siguro sa araw. Nasa kwarto lang kasi ako maghapon e
h."

"Sabagay. Oo nga pala, naglalaro na kami ng Shot or Dare."

Shot or Dare? Di ba dapat Truth or Dare?

"Eh?" Tanong ko.

"Shot or Dare kasi nga hindi naman natin ka close lahat ng tao dito kaya hindi k
ami comfortable sa Truth. Kaya instead na Truth, Shot na lang." Paliwanag sakin
ni Nof.

Naglaro na sila. Sila lang talaga actually. Hindi ako nagpaparticipate kasi nabb
other ako pag nakikita kong ang sweet sweet ni Cyriel kay Ynna. Tuwing tumatapat

sakin yung bote, nagsshot lang ako. KJ nga daw pero anong magagawa ko? Nakakain
is lang talaga. Bakit ba kasi ako naiinis? Kainis!

"Cyriel!" Tumapat kay Cyriel yung bote.

"Shot or Dare?" Tanong nila sa kanya. Shot na lang, please. Medyo lasing na yung
mga tao, baka kung ano ang ipagawa sa kanya.

"Dare." Sagot niya.

"Dare? Kish mo si girlfriend mo." Sabi ni Kim. Lasing na halos kaming lahat pwer
a kay Cyriel, Dave, at Kill. Si Andy din lasing na.

Hindi ko alam kung mabigat na lang talaga yung mata ko dahil sa alak kaya napapi
kit ako o dahil ayoko lang talaga makitang hinahalikan ni Cyriel si Ynna.

"Oh. Tapos na ang kissing scene. Umakyat na tayong lahat kasi balik Manila na ta
yo bukas." Sabi ni Dave. Tinulungan nila yung ibang babae na umakyat pati si And
y. Nagvolunteer ako na ako na yung mag aayos ng bonfire.

Hindi ko alam pero tumayo ako at hinanap ko siya..

"Cyriel.. Tayo pa rin naman, di ba?"

Epekto ba ng alak kaya ko nasabi yun? Pero naisip ko lang.. If love is really a
bout experiencing pain for other's happiness or choosing happiness above other's
pain.. In this case, i'll be selfish. I'll choose happiness. I'll choose him.

"Tayo pa di ba?" I asked him. Bahala na. Pag sinabi niyang oo, then good. Pag si
nabi niyang hindi, sasabihin ko na lang na lasing ako to save my goddamned pride
.

I silently waited for his answer. Damn it! Bakit ba masyado akong apektado sa pa
ghalik niya kay Ynna? Ano'ng karapatan kong magselos gayong hinahalikan ko din n
aman si Andy? Naaapektuhan din kaya siya kapag nakikita niyang hinahalikan ko si
Andy?

"May girlfriend ako." He said. Fck it. Ang sakit pala talaga. Lalo na pag nangga
ling mismo sa kanya.

"Then break up with her."

"Then break up with him."

Fck it! Ano ba ang gusto mo, Cyriel?!

"I will, hiwalayan mo muna si Ynna." I said. Sinabi ko lang yun para matahimik s
iya, truth be told, hindi ko alam kung kaya ko bang gawin yung sinasabi ko. Isip
in ko lang na wala si Andy sa tabi ko, hindi ko na alam yung gagawin ko..

He smirked, "Then deal with it, i am the one that got away."

Tumalikod na siya at nagsimulang maglakad with one hand in his pocket. Damn it,
Cyriel! How arrogant can you get?!

"Tell me, ano ba ang gusto mo?!" I said with conviction. I didn't bother to shou
t kasi baka may makarinig sa amin.

"Hiwalayan mo si Andy. Don't make me say that again."

"G-give me time to think.." I uttered.

Hindi na siya sumagot, instead, tinalikuran niya ako at nagsimulang maglakad uli
t.

It's been a week simula nung Pansol trip namin. Isang linggo na din simula nung
sumasama sa amin si Cyriel. Isang linggo na akong naiinis.

"Don't tell me, affected ka pa din?" Tanong ni Sara.

"O-of course not!" Depensa ko naman, "Wala kasi si Andy eh. Wag mo na akong pans
inin." I said.

Lagi kasing wala si Andy. Graduating na kasi siya kaya busy siya sa thesis niya
pati defense. Nagccram na siya ngayon kasi nga lagi siyang nasa bahay namin dati
kaya ngayon lang siya naghahabol para sa final draft at defense ng thesis niya.
Aish. Nakakamiss din si Andy. Paano kaya pag grumaduate na siya? Ngayong end ng
first sem pa naman yun.

"Speaking of Andy, graduating na 'yun di ba? If i heard it right, si Cyriel ay d


elayed ng 2 sems?" Tanong ni Sara. Oo nga noh, ngayon ko lang naalala.

"Oo yata. Narinig ko lang kay Dave yan eh. Hindi yata sila nag aral sa States."
Sabi ko na lang. Kung hindi sila nag aral dun, ano kaya ang ginawa nila? Psh.

"Tsk. Tsk."

"Oh? Ano na naman ineemote mo jan, Sara?"

"Eh kasi ggraduate na si Andy tapos maiiwan pa dito si Cyriel. Baka mamaya may m
angyaring kakaiba na naman, Dana. Nag aalala lang ako."

"Umayos ka nga. Kung anu ano iniisip mo." Sabi ko na lang. Pero sa totoo lang, k
inakabahan ako. Ngayon ngang hindi pa graduate si Andy, may nangyayari na. Ano p
a kaya kung graduate na siya?

Pagkatapos naming mag usap ni Sara, binalik na namin yung attention namin kay Da
ve. Nagpplano kasi siya ng house party para sa aming magbbarkada lang. Kung inii
sip niyo kung bakit ako tinatanong ni Sara kung affected ba ako, kasi naman, par
ang koala na nakalambitin si Ynna kay Cyriel. Nako, kung nandito lang si Andy, m
agpapaka tarsier din ako!

"Honeybabes, inuman na naman? Lagi na lang tayong umiinom eh. Nakakasawa na." Sa
bi ni Sara kay Dave. Tama naman, nakakasawa ng uminom. Pag lagi niyong ginagawa,
nakakawala ng thrill.

"I agree, Sara. Wala na bang ibang pwedeng gawin?" Sabi naman ni Nof.

"Kayo, isip kayo ng pwedeng gawin. Basta sa bahay lang ang venue, ayoko na kasin
g lumabas. Hassle eh." Sabi naman ni Dave.

Nag isip kami ng mga pwedeng gawin sa loob ng bahay. Syempre number 1 ang inuman
pero rejected na agad yun kasi nga sobrang nakakasawa na. Nag suggest din sila
ng swimming party pero rejected dahil -ber month na. Ang lamig lamig na. Kung an
u ano ang suggestion pero nauwi din kami sa movie marathon.

"So, movie marathon it is. Ano ang papanoorin natin?" Tanong ni Dave.

"A walk to remember!" Sagot ni Kim.

"Oh, please! Hindi tayo pupunta dun para mag senti." Pangontra agad ni Nof sa be
stfriend niya. Ang cute lang nila. Hahaha!

"Ikaw, Cyriel? May suggestion ka ba?" Tanong ni Dave. Okay, napatigil sila sa pa
glalandian dahil sa tanong ni Dave.

"Kayo na lang bahala." Yun lang ang sinabi niya.

"Sige. Horror- Suspense na lang tayo sa Friday. Pahiram ng external niyo ha, Cyr
iel?"

"Sure. Dadalin ko na lang."

"Uhm, Dana, sa tingin mo ba makakarating si Andy sa Friday?" Tanong sa kin ni Da


ve. Medyo na awkward-an ako kasi nakatingin din si Cyriel at Ynna sa akin. Ang a
wkward.

"Di ako sure eh. Alam mo naman, busy sa thesis niya. Ayokong istorbohin kasi bak
a ma delay pa."

"Ayieeeee." Sabi ni Nof, Kim, at Sara.

"Naks naman, supportive girlfriend." Sabi ni Kim.

"Syempre, tanga na lang niya pagpinakawalan niya pa si Andy." Sabi ni Nof.

"Talaga naman. Ang laki na lang niyang tanga." Sabi ni Sara.

Forever Andy fans. Mukhang pag nag away kami ni Andy, siya ang kakampihan nila.
=___=

"Sino ba ang kaibigan niyo? Si Andy o ako?" Sabi ko ng parang nagtatampo.

"Whatever." Sagot nilang tatlo. Wow. Ako kasi talaga yung kaibigan niyo, guys!

"So, it's settled. Kita kita sa Friday, ha?"

Tapos naghiwa hiwalay na kami papunta sa kanya kanya naming klase. Nakita kong h

inatid ni Cyriel si Ynna dun sa room nila. Bakit ko kamo alam? Magkka college ka
mi, remember? Hindi pa naman ako umaabot sa pagiging stalker nila. Not yet.

Natapos ang araw ko ng hindi ko nakakasalubong ang dalawang yun. Haay, nakakamis
s si Andy. Walang nanggulo sa akin. Tawagan ko nga.

Beb
calling...

"Andy?"

("Dana..")

"Bakit ganyan boses mo? May sakit ka ba?"

("Hindi pa ako natutulog eh..")

"Matulog ka muna. Baka magkasakit ka.."

("Ayoko. Gusto ko ng tapusin to para makasama na kita. Halfway done na naman ako
eh.")

"Naks naman. Ang sipag talaga ah."

("Syempre naman. Para sa future natin eh.")

"Para namang sure na sure kang papakasalan kita? Hahaha."

("Alam ko lang.")

"Whatever."

("Pero iniisip ko na wag munang ipasa 'to..")

"Ha? Bakit?!"

("Eh kasi mauuna akong grumaduate. Ayokong malayo sa'yo..")

Kinikilig ako. Kinikilig ako! :">

"Tumigil ka nga, Andy. Grumaduate ka na. Tsaka 1 year na lang naman ako kasi 4 y
ears lang naman ang course ko. Tsaka baka magalit sila Tito at Tita sa akin pag
nalaman nilang naging 6 years ung originally 5 years na course mo dahil sa akin.
"

("Aish. Naiinis kasi ako tuwing iniisip ko na maiiwan pa si Cyriel jan eh.")

"Don't tell me nagseselos ka?"

Hala. Kinikilig ako lalo! Mukha na akong tangang nakangiti dito!

("Eh ex mo pa din kaya yung ggo na yun.. Tsaka mahal mo pa yata yun eh..")

"Andy!"

("Oh")

"Sino ba ang boyfriend ko?"

("Ako..")

"Sino ba ang tinatawagan ko?"

("Ako?")

"Sino ba ang namimiss ko?"

("Ako?")

"Sino ba ang pinakilala ko sa parents ko?"

("Ako?")

"Sino ba ang sinasabihan ko ng mahal ko?"

("Ako..")

"Ngayon, sa tingin mo dapat ka pa bang magselos?"

("...Hindi na. Salamat, Dana. Mahal na mahal na mahal na mahal talaga kita! Sige
, bbye na. Tatapusin ko na 'tong thesis ko para makapunta na ulit ako sa inyo. S
alamat sa pagtawag. I love you!")

"I love you, too."

Tapos tinatapos ko na yung tawag.

"Yun pala ang gustong makipagbalikan. Eh ang sweet niyo pala ni Andy eh." Nagula
t ako kasi biglang nagsalita si Cyriel sa likod ko.

"Kanina ka pa jan?" Tanong ko habang nakahawak sa dibdib ko.

"Long enough para marinig ko yung i love you, too mo." Tapos nag smirk siya.

"Eh ano bang pakielam mo, the one that got away?" Tanong ko tapos nagsmirk din a
ko.

"Wala naman."

Naiinis na ako kaya iniwan ko na siya at naglakad ako papunta sa parking lot. Si
nusundan ako ng mokong na 'to, nakakainis!

"Hoy! Bakit mo ba ako sinusundan?!" Tanong ko.

"Asa ka pa. Ikaw ba may ari ng parking lot?"

"Bwisit!" Tapos tinalikuran ko na siya at naglakad ulit papunta sa beloved baby


ko.

ASDFHJKL!!! Bakit butas yung gulong ng baby ko?!!!

"Need a lift?" Tanong niya habang nakangiti ng nakakaasar. Oh Jesus, gusto niyo
bang sinusubukan ang pasensya ko?

"You," lumapit ako sa kanya, "Tell me, binutas mo ba yung gulong ko?" I calmly s
aid pero halatang naiinis na ako.

Tinaas niya yung kamay niya, "Wala akong alam." Sabi niya. No need for further q
uestioning, binutas niya!

"You, hideous creature! Bwisit ka talaga sa buhay ko!!" There, naiinis na ako ka

ya nagsisisgaw na ako dun. Wala na akong pakielam kung may makakita man at makar
inig sa akin kasi nabbwisit na talaga ako!

"Una, dinurog mo yung pride ko. Pangalawa, lagi kayong nagppda sa harap ko. Ngay
on naman, dinamay mo pa yung sasakyan ko?! What's for next?!" Sigaw ko.

"What's for next?" Naglakad siya papalapit sa akin, "Babawiin kita kay Andy." Bu
long niya sa akin.

Tinulak ko siya, "You wish!"

"We will see."

"Asa ka pa! Bwisit ka!" Tapos pumunta ako sa sasakyan niya at sinipa ko ng sinip
a yung gulong niya, "Aray!!" Tapos tumalon talon ako kasi ang sakit. Ako pa yung
nasaktan sa ginawa ko. Bwisit talaga 'tong hayop na to!

Lumapit siya sa akin tapos binuhat ako na parang sako, "Ano ba?! Ibaba mo nga ak
o!!"

"Shut up, will you? Dadalin kita sa ospital." Sabi niya tapos pinasok niya ako s
a backseat ng lambo niya.

"Isusumbong kita kay Andy, bwisit ka!"

"Sumbong mo para magselos siya. That will benefit me, the one that got away."

"Wag mo nga akong tawagin na ganun. Nakakbwisit ka talaga!"

"The one that got away, tumahimik ka na. O baka naman gusto mong patahimikin kit
a?" Tapos tinignan niya ako tapos bumaba yung tingin niya sa lips ko. Manyak!

"Manyak ka! Napunta ka lang sa States naging mayabang at manyak ka na! Ibalik mo
na si Cyriel na tahimik at hindi bastos!!"

Bigla siyang nagpreno kaya napa tilapon ako ng konti sa unahan. Pag angat ko ng
ulo ko, o_O

Nagulat ako kasi hinalikan na niya agad ako.

Nakabukas lang yung mata ko habang nakapikit yung mata niya.

Hinalikan niya ako ng halos 10 seconds. Thank God, walang movements. =___=

"There, hinalikan na kita. Satisfied? Pwede ka na bang tumahimik?" Tapos bumaik


na siya sa pagddrive at hindi ako pinansin.

Humiga na lang ako sa likod at tahimik na minumura si Cyriel sa isip ko. Walangy
a ka!! Walangya ka!! Ang kapal kapal mong halikan ako pagkatapos mo akong basted
in. Bwisit ka!

After couple of minutes, nakarating din kami sa ospital. Binuksan niya yung pint
o ng sasakyan at binuhat ako. Hindi na ako nagreklamo kasi i perfectly understan
d na hindi mahalaga ang opinyon ko. Fine.

"Kaano ano niyo po ang pasyente?" Tanong nung nurse sa amin.

"Boyfriend." Sabi ni Cyriel.

"Ex boyfriend."

"Na magiging boyfriend ulit."

"Na magiging ex ulit."

"Na magiging boyfriend ulit."

"Na magiging ex ulit."

"Na magiging boyfriend ulit."

"Na magiging ex ulit."

Ganun lang yung paulit ulit na sinasabi namin kaya nainis na yung nurse, "Ayan,
it's complicated ang nilagay ko! Mga kabataan nga naman, ang sakit sa ulo!" Tapo
s sinamahan niya kami papunta sa doctor habang thank God, naka stretcher na ako.
Ayoko ng magpabuhat sa creature na 'to!

"Na sprain ka lang, hija. Lalagyan lang natin ng bandage at konting pahinga lang
okay ka na ulit. Mabuti na lang at nadala ka agad ng boyfriend mo, kung hindi a
y baka lumala pa iyan.."

"Ay nako, hindi ko po 'to boyfriend, doc." Sabi ko sabay hand gestures pa.

"Ay, sayang naman. Bagay pa naman kayo. O siya, maiwan ko na kayo at may ibang p
asyente pa akong aasikasuhin."

Tapos umalis na yung doctora at naiwan kami ng creature na 'to.

"Bakit mo ba pinagkakalat na boyfriend kita?!"

Nag shrug lang siya.

"Creature ka talaga!!"

"Shut up, the one that got away." Sabi niya ng nakangiting nang aasar. Alam na a
lam niya talaga kung paano pakuluin ang dugo ko.

"Magpapakasal na ako kay Andy para tigilan mo na ako!"

"Sure. Dadalin kita sa Las Vegas bago pa mangyari yun."

"Asa ka pa."

"Try me. Baka gusto mong mapalitan na yang Ferrer ng Perez. Sabihin mo lang."

"Hayop ka talaga!" Sabi ko sa kanya.

Lumapit siya sa akin tapos may binulong siya sa tenga ko, "Lalo akong natturn on
pag nagmumura ka, the one that got away.."

Oh God. San niyo po ba dinala yung totoong Cyriel?

Chapter 36

Smirk.

Yan ang unang bagay na nakita kong ginawa ni Cyriel pagkapasok na pagkapasok ko
sa entertainment room.

"Keep it to yourself, Cyriel. Wala ako sa mood makipagtalo." I said in desperate


tone.

"Wala naman akong ginagawa eh." He said.

"Then good. And please continue doing so." I said then umupo na ako sa sofa.

Flashback

Nung gabing hinatid ako ni Cyriel, pinuntahan ako ni Andy.

"Napano ka?" Sabi ni Andy pagkakita niya sa paa ko, "Okay ka na ba? Gusto mo dal
hin kita sa doctor?" He asked in his worried tone.

"No need. Kakagaling ko lang dun."

"San mo ba nakuha yan? Kasi naman eh, wag ka ng mag heels.." Sabi niya tapos umu
po siya sa tabi ko at hinilot yung sprained ankle ko, "Feeling better?"

I nodded, "San mo natutunan yan?"

"Nagseminar ako."

Bigla naman akong natawa. Nawala lahat ng stress na nakuha ko kay Cyriel kanina.

"Weh? Ikaw? Si Andrei Louie Guzman? Kumuha ng seminar sa pagmamasahe? Hahahaha!"


Then i burst into laughter. Nakakatawa kasing iimagine.

"Tss. Masama ba?"

"Hindi naman," tapos pinunasan niya yung luha ko kasi naiyak na ako sa katatawa,
"Pero bakit mo ginawa yun?"

"Lagi kasing stressed sa trabaho si Mama at Papa eh. Kaya naisipan kong mag aral
ng ganun para makatulong naman akong matanggal kahit konti yung stress nila. Hi
ndi ko pa kayang ihandle yung business, that's the least i can do."

Dumbfounded.

How can someone be THIS thoughtful?

"Aish. Feeling ko tuloy ang sama kong anak."

Ginulo niya yung buhok ko, "Buti alam mo." Tapos tumawa siya, "Teka, san mo nga
pala nakuha yan?"

"Uhm," nag iisip ako kung magsisinungaling ba ako at sasabihin kong nadulas ako
o sasabihin ko sa kanya yung totoo at sasaktan ko siya?

"Si Cyriel kasi eh.. Pero walang nangyari, promise! Sinipa ko lang yung gulong n
iya kasi inaasar niya ako kanina. Wag kang magalit, please?"

Huminga siya ng malalmin tapos, "Alright. Walang nangyari?"

I nodded.

"I trust you." Tapos tumayo siya at kinuha yung cake sa center table na dinala n
iya for me.

"Teka, bakit ka nga pala nandito? Gumagawa ka ng thesis di ba?" I asked while ea
ting.

"Break time. Kailangan ko munang makita ang girlfriend ko." He said and smiled.
Why the heck am i so lucky?

"Bola. Tapusin mo yun agad ha?"

"Oo naman. Konting revisions na lang, okay na yun."

"Teka, may gagawin ka ba sa Friday?"

"Meron. Bakit?" He asked

May icing ng chocolate cake sa gilid ng bibig niya pinunasan ko while saying, "M
ovie marathon daw kila Dave eh. May gagawin ka pala, sayang."

"Nandun ba si Cyriel?"

"Yata?"

"Pupunta ako." He said.

"Akala ko may gagawin ka."

"Icacancel ko na lang."

"Wag na, Andy. I can handle. You trust me, right?" Sabi ko sa kanya while holdin
g his hand.

Huminga siya ng malalim, "Alright. Be a good girlfriend, Dana." Then he smiled.

"I'll always be." Then i smiled back.

Pagkatapos nun, nagkwentuhan lang kami. Inabutan siya ni Mom at Dad kaya sumabay
na siya sa aming mag dinner. Buti na lang hindi na inusisa ng parents ko kung s
an ko nakuha yung sprain. Tapos umalis na siya after ng dinner.

Back to reality

"Ano bang problema mo?" He asked.

"Wala." I said in return. Buti na lang wala pa si Kim at Nof, sila Dave naman, n
agmmicrowave ng popcorn.

"Then why the hell are you ignoring me?"

"I'm not."

"Yes, you are."

Tumayo ako sa kinauupuan ko at hinarap ko si Cyriel.

"For the record, let's get things straight, Cyriel. Unang una, hindi kita boyfri
end para magdemand ka ng attention ko. We're not even friends, for God's sake! P
inakikisamahan kita kasi kaibigan ka ni Dave, at may pinagsamahan naman tayo kah
it papano. Kaya please naman, please make it easy for both of us. Set your limit
."

Naglakad na ako palabas ng pinto,

"And besides, ikaw naman na ang may sabi, may girlfriend ka na. Learn to set you
r priorities. Matanda ka na, Cyriel. Alam mo na kung ano ang tama sa mali. And l
astly, respeto na lang. Irespeto mo naman ako. Hindi mo ako girlfriend para hali
k halikan mo kung kailan mo gusto. Kung hindi mo na ako kayang irespeto dahil sa
nangyari dati, kahit yung pinagsamahan niyo na lang ni Andy. Girlfriend niya na
ako, back off."

Yun ang ginawa ko. Andy trusts me so much.

Pumunta ako sa kusina.

"Dave, alis na ako."

Napatingin sila sa akin tapos linapitan nila ako.

"Bakit ka naiiyak?" Tanong ni Sara habang hawak niya yung mukha ko. Nangingilid
na kasi yung luha ko.

"W-wala.."

Bigla niya akong niyakap, "Si Cyriel na naman ba?"

Tumango ako habang yakap yakap ako ni Sara.

"Bakit ba kasi ayaw niya akong tigilan? Okay na lahat eh.." I said while crying.

"Gumawa naman ako ng effort para ipaliwanag sa kanya di ba?"

"We know, Dana. Huwag ka ng umiyak. You've been shedding too much tears for him.
." Sara said while caressing my back.

"Ayoko na. Sawang sawa na ako sa laro niya. Talo na ako, kaya sana naman tigilan
na niya ako."

Pagkatapos nun, umalis na ako pauwi sa amin. Hindi ko na kaya. Naiinis na talaga
ako.

Sara's Point of View

Sawang sawa na akong nakikita si Dana na umiiyak kaya pinuntahan ko na si Cyriel


. Kakausapin ko na siya bago pa mawala yung respeto ko sa kanya.

"Sabihin mo nga sa'kin, ano ba talaga?" Tanong ko sa kanya.

Nakaupo siya sa sofa mag isa.

"Ano?" Sagot niya sa akin.

"Why the hell are you toying with my bestfriend's feeling?!"

"I'm not."

"Then why the hell are you pursuing her now?! May boyfriend na siya, Cyriel!" I
almost shouted.

"I'm his boyfriend, Sara. Alam mo yan." He said.

"Great. So, two timer ka na pala ngayon?" I said. Note the sarcasm.

"Hindi. Dana's my only girlfriend. Hindi kami nagbreak."

"Then what about that btch?"

"She has a name, it's Ynna. She's not my girlfriend."

"Wow. So naghahalikan kayo for no reason? Pumunta kayo sa States for no reason?
Sinaktan ko si Dana for no reason? Wow lang talaga ha!" I said.

"I have my reasons." He said tapos tumayo na siya.

"Well, i'd like to hear your reasons, Cyriel Perez."

Ynna's Point of View

I'm here at Cyriel's House. Ilang days din kaming hindi nagkita so i decided to
check up on him.

After almost an hour, narinig kong nagpark yung sasakyan niya kaya pumunta ako s
a front door para salubungin siya.

"Are you drunk?" I asked him.

"Obviously, yes." He said while walking past me.

"It's about her again." I stated. It's a statement of fact.

"Obviously again, yes." Then he sat down on the nearest stool.

"Are we going back again to this topic, Cy?" I asked him.

Bigla niyang kinuha yung basong nakapatong sa table at tinapon, "Damn it, Ynna!
You know how much i love her! And it kills me to see her with Andy!"

I looked on the ground, avoiding his gaze.

"I love her to the point that i left her.." He said then he burst into tears.

I'm used to his tears. When we were still in the States, makikita ko na lang siy
a hawak yung picture ni Dana while crying. It hurts me. It kills me. Ako yung ka
sama niya pero siya pa din yung iniisip niya..

"Please just don't say that again." I said then tumalikod ako. I always see him
crying for her pero this time, ayoko na siyang makita. It's too much.

"You're selfish." He said.

"I know."

Then he stood up and walked towards the stairs, "I'm dying, Cyriel. Always remem
ber the reason why." Then i left him.

Dave's Point of View

"Andy." Pumunta ako sa bahay nila Andy.

"Yo. Long time no see." He said.

"Alam na ni Sara." I said.

"Ha?"

"She already knows the reason why."

Biglang napatigil si Andy sa pagrrevise ng thesis niya.

"Cyriel told her."

Bigla siyang ngumiti, "I guess wala talagang sikretong hindi nabubunyag. One of
these days, malalaman na din ni Dana."

Tumayo siya at umupo sa kama niya, "What will you do by then?" I asked him.

"I honestly don't know. I've done all that i can." He said.

"Hindi kaya mababaliwala lahat ng yun pag nalaman niya?"

"I don't know, Dave. I don't know."

Chapter 37

Sara's Point of View

"..You must be kidding, Cy."

Hindi siya sumagot.

"She's that sick?"

Tumango lang siya.

"Oh God. I didn't know.."

Tapos umiyak na ako. I feel horrible. All these time, ang daming assumption na g
inawa namin, tapos, eto pala talaga?

"How's she?" I asked.

"She's fine. For now."

"May paraan pa naman di ba?"

"I don't know. Sabi ng mga doctors, mapapatagal lang yung pagkalat ng virus pero
hindi mawawala yung sakit."

"Oh God. I'm sorry.."

Yun na lang ang nasabi ko. Kung alam ko lang..

"Nasan siya?"

"Sa bahay nila."

"Pwede ko ba siyang makausap?"

"I don't know. I'll ask her."

Sht. Ynna, bakit ba kasi ang tanga tanga tanga tanga mo at ginawa mo yun?!!!

------------------Dana's Point of View

September na! Kakatapos lang ng midterms. Yeah, baby! It's time to celebrate!

"Yo. Bar tayo."

Kasama ko sila Nof at Kim ngayon. Since nagshift ako, hindi ko na classmate si S
ara. Nakakamiss din maging classmate yung bruhang yun. Anyhow, masaya din naman
kasama tong dalawang to. Parang may reality show akong pinapanood eh. Lakas maka
pag away eh. Ganon ang tunay na magkaibigan. Hahaha!

"Tara. Nakakastress yung FA107. Halos blangko yung papel ko eh." Reklamo ni Kim.

"Reality check, Kim. Ikaw lang ang may blangkong papel sa buong room. And beside
s, kailan ba napuno ang papel mo?" Tapos umarte na nag iisip si Nof, "Never pa!"

See? Eto ang reality show. Entertainment at its best. Popcorn na lang ang kulang
. Hahaha!

"Whatever. Mayaman ako." Tapos tinalikuran niya si Nof at hinarap ako, "Bar tayo
, DK! Gusto ko ng Tonic ngayon."

"Sure. Basta ba treat mo eh."

"Sure thing, DK. Ako pa, mayaman ako eh." Tapos hinatak na niya kaming dalawa ni
Nof papunta sa parking lot.

Habang nagddrive ako papunta sa bar, tinext ko si Sara. Wag niyo akong gagayahin
, masamang magtext habang nagddrive. =___=

To: SaraBesty
Bar tayo sa South. See you in a bit. Libre ni Kim. Punta ka. Sipain kita pag hin
di. Loveyou.

Sent.

Si Andy at Dave pa pala tinext ko din na sumunod. Pero nandun na pala silang dal
awa. =___=

Biglang nagreply si Sara

From: SaraBesty
Dito na ko. Daan ka daw muna sa bahay niyo sabi ng mama mo.

Oh? Pinapapunta ako ni Mama sa bahay? Bakit hindi ko alam? Hindi ba niya ako mac
ontact? Baka nga kasi walang signal sa loob ng exam room. So in the end, nag U-t
urn ako papunta sa bahay. Tinext ko na lang sila Nof at Kim na susunod na lang a
ko.

------------------Sara's Point of View

3rd Shot.

Nandito kami ngayon ni Andy sa bar sa South. Pagkatapos na pagkatapos ng midterm


exams ko, tinext ko si Andy na magkita kami dun.

"So, ginawa mo yun dahil mahal mo si Dana?!" Inis na tanong ko.

"Oo.."

"Ang selfish mo, Andy."

"Alam ko."

"Pati si Cyriel niloko mo. Kaibigan mo yun. Kaibigan." Sabi ko tapos ininom ko y
ung shot ko. Tinext ko din si Dana kanina na pumunta muna sa bahay nila pati sil
a Kim para hindi muna sila pumunta dito. Mamaya na ako magpapaliwanag kung bakit
ko ginawa yun. Ang mahalaga, magkausap kami ni Andy ngayon.

"Alam ko, Sara. Pero anong magagawa ko? Mahal ko si Dana eh." Sabi niya tapos um
inom din siya. Kasama namin si Dave pero nandun siya sa counter. Kami lang dalaw
a ang magkausap.

"Yeah. And it sucks."

"I know."

"Ano'ng gagawin mo ngayon? Sooner or later, malalaman din ni Dana yun. Hindi tan
ga si Dana."

"Hindi ko alam."

"Ang bobo mo."

"Alam ko. Pero Sara, bakit hindi ka nagagalit sa'kin? Ibang iba yung iniisip kon
g magiging reaction mo pag nalaman mo. Iniisip ko, susuntukin mo ko, mumu--"

Bigla akong tumawa, "Sa totoo lang, gusto kong gawin lahat yan, Andy. Ang sarap
mong ihulog sa dagat eh. Actually, kayong tatlo. Ikaw dahil ang selfish mo, si C
yriel kasi masyado siyang mabait, si Ynna kasi ang tanga niya." Tapos tumigil ak
o para uminom, "Pero wala namang mangyayari pag nagalit ako. Naaawa lang ako kay
Dana pag nalaman niya yung totoong dahilan. Knowing her? Siguradong sisisihin n
iya ang sarili niya.."

Biglang natahimik si Andy. Alam niya kasi na totoo. Pag nalaman ni Dana kung ano
ang sakit ni Ynna, who knows? Baka kainin siya ng konsensya niya. Nung una, si
Jamie. Ngayon naman, si Ynna. Bakit ba ang gulo ng buhay? Sumasabay pa 'tong si
Andy at Cyriel.

"Yun nga ang kinakatakot namin ni Cyriel eh. Nung una pumayag lang naman kami ka
si naaawa kami kay Ynna.. Pero things got worse, at eto na ang nangyari."

"Ano ang nangyari?"

Nagulat kami kasi nandun na si Dana sa harap namin.

"Aish! Para kang kabute!" Sabi ko.

"Kabute ka jan! Eh ikaw nga eh, hindi naman pala ako hinahanap ni Mama! Sipain k
aya kita jan?!"

"Oh? Akala ko hinahanap ka niya."

"Bwisit. At ikaw, Boyfriend! Bakit ka nandito? Pinagtataksilan mo na ba ako with


my best friend?!" Sabi niya.

Biglang naubo si Andy, "Beb naman eh. Asa ka pa. Si Sara? Alam mo namang ikaw la
ng ang mahal ko eh." Tapos niyakap niya si Dana. Sweet boyfriend? Not. Sinungali
ng pa, pwede.

"Oo nga, Dana. Si Andy? Ew. Mas gusto ko si Dave, loyal at HONEST." Sabi ko whil
e emphasizing the word honest.

"Bakit? Hindi ka ba loyal at honest, Andy?" Tanong ni Dana.

"H-honest ako. Ako pa."

Haaaaaay, Dana. Kung alam mo lang.

-------------------Ynna's Point of View

"Cyriel, please talk to me." I nodged him. It's been days pero hindi niya pa din
ako kinakausap. Simula nung gabing umuwi siya ng lasing dahil kay Dana, hindi n
iya ako masyadong kinakausap. Lagi na lang siyang nasa kwarto at nagmumukmok. Su
re, sanay na ako. Ako ang laging kasama pero si Dana ang nasa isip. Sanay na san
ay na ako. Dapat lang akong masanay, i asked for it so i should live with it.

"I went to the doctor yesterday," naramdaman kong nakikinig na siya. Tuwing tung
kol sa condition ko ang pinag uusapan, nagseseryso siya, "He said na nasa metast
asis stage na ako. Then some technical terms na hindi ko naman maintindihan. Dap
at kasi sinamahan mo ako, alam mo namang---"

Bigla siyang tumayo tapos tinignan ako, "Date tayo?"

Ngumiti naman ako, "Sure."

------------------Cyriel's Point of View

"I went to the doctor yesterday," umayos ako para pakinggan siya, "He said na na
sa metastasis stage na ako. Then some technical terms na hindi ko naman maintind
ihan. Dapat kasi sinamahan mo ako, alam mo namang---"

Tumayo ako tapos tinanong ko siya, "Date tayo?"

Ngumiti naman siya, "Sure."

Naligo muna ako tapos nagbihis. Ynna must be happy. Yan ang tinatak ko sa isip k
o. Masyado na akong madaming sinayang para lang sa kanya. Dapat maging masaya si
ya. Kahit siya na lang dahil alam ko naman na hindi na ako magiging masaya lalo
na't mas pinili ni Dana si Andy. Without Dana, happiness is the word next to imp
ossible.

Dinala ko si Ynna sa park para magpahangin. Sabi ng doctor niya wala na daw pag
asa. Mapapabagal yung sakit pero hindi pa din mawawala. Kahit eto na lang yung g
awin ko, para at least, kung malaman man ni Dana, mabawasan yung guilt niya dahi
l during Ynna's last days, she was happy.

Chapter 37.5

"Bora o Galera?"

Nag uusap kami ngayon nila Nof at Kim kung saan kami pupunta sa sembreak. Malapi
t na kaya, almost one month na lang ang pasukan. Mabuti ng magplano ng maaga.

"Galera na lang," sabi ni Kim, "May rest house kami dun para libre na lang ang a
ccomodation natin."

"Bora na lang, may rest house kami dun. Libre accomodation pati pagkain." Sabi n
aman ni Nof.

"Galera. Pati drinks libre ko."

Oh-kay? Eto na naman sila. Nagpapayamanan.

"Chill lang, girls. Wala namang competition dito, alright?" I said tapos pumagit
na ako sa dalawa.

"Hindi naman kami nag aaway eh, ganito lang talaga kaming mag usap ni Nof," pali
wanang ni Kim, "So, DK, Galera na tayo?" Then she smiled.

"Fine. Galera it is.Teka lang, nakita niyo ba si Sara?" Tinanong ko sila. Nung i
sang araw ko pa hindi nakikita si Sara eh.

"Hindi eh. Pero kahapon nakita ko siya kasama si Ynna sa mall."

Ynna?

Sara?

Mall?

What?!

"Kim, are you serious? Nag malling silang dalawa?!" I almost shouted. Si Sara, s
inamahan si Ynna sa mall? Is she nuts?!

"Yep. Si Sara yun. Ewan ko, gusto ko sana silang lapitan kaya lang nagmamadali d
in ako."

Ano'ng meron sa mga tao?

"Come to think of it, DK, nakita ko din sila the other day. Hindi ko lang sinabi
sa'yo kasi baka hindi naman sila. For all i know, wala naman sa speaking terms
si Sara at Ynna kaya inisip ko na baka nagkamali lang ako ng tingin. Pero sa sin
asabi ni Kim, baka nga sila yung nakita ko sa coffee shop nung isang araw."

Wait lang. Nung una, nakita sila sa mall, ngayon naman, sa coffee shop? Ano sa s
usunod? Sa salon naman? Ano sila? Mag best friend?!!

"Dk, san ka pupunta?" Tanong ni Nof.

"Kay Sara? Sa bahay? Ewan. Naiinis ako." I said then i stormed out the room.

Haaaay. Akala ko pa naman magiging okay na ang lahat kasi tapos na ang midterms,
tinigilan na ako ni Cy, thank God, at okay naman kami ni Andy. Then this? Nagig
ing close si Sara at Ynna? May conspiracy bang nangyayari? The hell!

------------------Sara's Point of View

"So? Ano na ang gusto mong gawin ngayon?" I asked her. Kasama ko si Ynna ngayon.
Actually, for the past few days, siya ang kasama ko halos.

"Gusto mo sa bahay muna tayo? I'll bake." She said.

"Are you sure? Baka mapagod ka."

She laughed, "Alam mo, Sara, para kang si Cy. I know that in the end, i'm dying,
so please stop reminding me. Just let me live normally."

"Pero--"

"I already accepted it. I'm just living my life to the fullest. I know i'm being
selfish but i don't give a damn. Inagaw ko si Cy, i know. But i really love him
and it sucks."

Tumahimik na lang ako. Simula ng nalaman ko yung condition niya, i've been like
Cy. I want to make her happy. Siguro kagaya lang din ng reason ni Cyriel. Para a
t least kapag nalaman ni Dana, mababawasan ang guilt dahil Ynna's happy. Ang swe
rte mo, Dana, ang daming nagmamahal sa'yo.

----------------Ynna's Point of View

"Tara sa kitchen, i'll teach you how to bake."

Pumunta kami ni Sara sa kitchen. Pinaupo ko muna siya tapos kumuha ako ng materi
als and ingredients na gagamitin namin sa pagbbake.

Ang selfish ko ba? Una, kinuha ko si Cyriel, ngayon naman, si Sara. Sa tingin ni
yo siguro oo, pero para sa akin, hindi pa. Kulang pa. Buong buhay ko yung sinira
, pati kapatid ko na wala namang kinalaman sa gulo namin, dinamay niya. Now tell
me, ako pa rin ba ang masama? Masama bang gustuhing sumaya despite the fact na
alam mong may sakit ka?

"Game na?" I asked Sara with a smile. I want her to be my friend.

"Sure."

Then we started baking. I honestly enjoy Sara's company. Isa sa mga dahilan kung
bakit galit ako kay Dana besides the fact na siya ang gusto ni Cyriel ay si Sar
a. Being a governor's daughter sure has its perks, pero may disadvantages din. F
riends. Hindi ko alam kung totoo ba lahat ng kaibigan ko o kaya lang nila ako ki
nakaibigan dahil sa influence ng parents ko. Pero si Sara? She's a good friend.
I've seen how she defended Dana nung mga panahon na inaaway ko si Dana. That's o
ne reason kung bakit naiiinggit ako kay Dana, she has Sara. And i've been yearni
ng for a friend for so long. At ngayon na binigyan ako ng chance? I won't waste
it. Kahit na alam ko na kaya niya lang ako sinasamahan ay dahil naaawa siya sa a
kin, i'll make the most out of this. I'll show her that i can be her friend. A b
etter friend.

"There you go, may chocolate cake na tayo." I cheerfully said.

"Wow. Ang dali lang palang gawin nun eh." She said while smiling.

"Oo naman, next time punta ka dito, gawa naman tayo ng chiffon."

Tapos nun, we talked about things. Getting to know you things since ngayon lang
naman talaga kami naging 'friends.'

"Talaga? Binuhusan mo ng juice yung lalaking nangbastos kay Jamie sa bar?!" Sara
said with an amused face.

"Oo. Akala niya yata hindi ko siya papatulan porke't anak siya ng business partn

er ng Dad ko."

"I thought hindi kayo close ni Jamie?"

"We're not. We didn't talk often pero kapatid ko yun eh. Pag may nang away dun,
nagagalit ako. Ako lang ang pwedeng umaway sa kapatid ko."

Bigla siyang natahimik tapos napangiti, "Senorita, tawag po kayo ni Senora."

"Punta muna ako kay Mom." I said then she nodded.

--------------------Sara's Point of View

"Talaga? Binuhusan mo ng juice yung lalaking nangbastos kay Jamie sa bar?!" I sa


id with an amused face.

"Oo. Akala niya yata hindi ko siya papatulan porke't anak siya ng business partn
er ng Dad ko."

"I thought hindi kayo close ni Jamie?"

"We're not. We didn't talk often pero kapatid ko yun eh. Pag may nang away dun,
nagagalit ako. Ako lang ang pwedeng umaway sa kapatid ko."

Bigla akong natahimik tapos napangiti. I never thought na may pakielam pala si Y
nna kay Jamie. Base sa mga naririnig ko kay Jamie dati, ang sama samang kapatid
ni Ynna. Pero ang totoo pala, hindi lang expressive si Ynna sa nararamdaman niya
. Deep inside, mahal niya si Jamie. Buhusan ba naman ng juice yung lalaking umaw
ay kay Jamie, risking the possibility na papagalitan siya ng Dad dahil anak yun
ng business partner niya.

"Senorita, tawag po kayo ni Senora."

"Punta muna ako kay Mama." Sabi niya tapos tumango na lang ako.

Naghihintay ako kay Ynna kasi kakainin pa namin yung chocolate cake. Bigla naman
g nagtext si Dana.

From: DanaBesty
San ka?

To: DanaBesty
Ynna's.

From: DanaBesty
Whatthehell?!

Hindi na ako nagreply kasi baka mag away lang kami. Ipapaliwanag ko na lang sa k
anya pag nagkita kami. Besides, i'm doing this for her. Sana malaman niya.

-----------------Cyriel's Point of View

"That's it for now. Babalik na lang ako para mag conduct ng check up ulit." Sabi
ng doctor. Kadadating ko lang dito sa Henares' residence tapos naabutan ko na n
agppacheck up si Ynna. Weekly check up. Minomonitor lang yung condition niya.

"Cy.." Sabi ni Ynna tapos lumapit siya sa akin at niyakap ako.

"Bakit?" I responded and hugged her back.

"Kain tayo ng chocolate cake? Nagbake kami ni Sara!"

Sara? Sara Gomez?

"Sino'ng Sara?"

"Si Sara Gomez.."

"Huh? Bakit siya nandito? Kailan pa kayo naging close?"

"Simula nung sinabi niya sa akin na alam na niya yung tungkol sa condition ko, n
aging mabait na siya sa akin then boom, close na yata kami."

"Aaaaah. Punta na tayo kay Sara." I said.

Biglang nagsalita si Tita, "Usap muna tayo, Ynna."

Tumango na lang si Ynna tapos umuna na ako. Pumunta na ako sa kusina tapos nakit
a kong nakaupo dun si Sara.

"Hey." I said.

"Cyriel.." She said.

"Bakit mo 'to ginagawa?" I straight-forwardly asked her.

"I don't know. Feeling ko responsibility ko siya eh. Somehow, i contributed sa n


angyayari sa kanya."

Napangiti na lang ako, "She won't die right now, Sara."

"I know. Pero gusto ko siyang maging masaya just like you. Pati para mabawasan d
in yung guilt ni Dana."

"Good to hear. Tara sa dining area. Dun na lang natin hintayin si Ynna."

---------------Dana's Point of View

"Beb, naiinis ako." Sabi ko kay Andy sabay patong ng ulo sa lamesa. Nandito kami
ngayon sa dining area ng bahay nila.

"Bakit naman?" He asked. Pinuntahan ko siya sa bahay nila after akong itext ni S
ara na nasa bahay siya ni Ynna.

"Si Sara kasi eh, kasama niya si Ynna."

Biglang tinigil ni Andy yung ginagawa niya, "Since when?"

"Ewan ko. These past few days puro si Ynna ang kasama niya. Naiinis na nga ako e
h."

Ako nga na best friend niya, hindi niya mabisita sa condo ko, tapos yung Ynna na
yun, napupuntahan niya sa bahay? Kamusta naman talaga yun di ba?! At take note,
nagmalling silang dalawa! Eh kami nga hindi pa nakakapagmalling since last mont
h eh! Aaaaah! Nakakainis talaga! Nababawasan na nga yung Ynna-allergy ko eh, bum
abalik na naman tuloy!

"Baka naman may reason si Sara," sabi ni Andy tapos niyakap ako.

"Ano namang reason?"

"I don't know. Beb, wag mo na nga silang isipin," tapos pinatong niya yung ulo n
iya sa leeg ko, "Birthday na ni Dave sa 13, tapos by that time, tapos na yung de
fense namin. Ano'ng gagawin natin?"

Tapos na ang defense nila. =___= That means ggraduate na sila. Nakakalungkot nam
an.

"Gusto mo bang magcelebrate?" I asked him habang nakastay pa din kami sa ganung
pwesto. Ang bango bango ng boyfriend ko.

"Ewan. Ikaw?"

"Ayoko. Nalulungkot ako pag naiisip ko na ggraduate ka na." I honestly said to h


im.

Naramdaman kong hinigpitan niya yung yakap niya sa'kin, "I love you. Kahit naman
grumaduate ako, hindi magbabago yun eh.."

"Eh kasi naman, magttrabaho ka na sa business ng papa mo tapos madaming babaeng


naka corporate attire. Eh alam ko namang sobrang nassexy-han ka sa mga babaeng n
aka corporate attire. Tapos syempre magpapapansin yung mga babaeng yun sa'yo tap
os--"

Hindi niya ako pinatapos kasi nagsalita siya, "Tapos, hindi ko sila papansinin k
asi mahal na mahal ko ang girlfriend ko. End of the story."

Napangiti na lang ako. Bwisit talaga 'to, alam na alam kung pano ako papangitiin
.

----------------

Kakatapos lang ng klase ko nung nakita ko si Sara kasama si Ynna sa caf.

"Sara, can we talk?" I said habang umiinom sila ng mango slur.

"Sige. Wait lang, Ynna." Sabi ni Sara sa kanya tapos tumango lang siya.

Lumabas kami ni Sara sa caf tapos umupo kami sa bench dun.

"Explain."

"Explain what?" She asked.

"Why the hell are you with Ynna?!" I almost shouted.

"Why not? Mabait naman siya ah!"

"Mabait? Saang parte?" Tapos tumawa ako.

"People change, Dana."

"But she did not, does not, and will not." I firmly said.

"Ewan ko sa'yo, Dana. Open your mind. Lahat na lang ng tao gumagawa ng mga bagay
para sa'yo. Learn to appreciate, at least."

"Really? Sino? Ikaw? Nakikipagclose sa kanya para sa akin? Wow lang talaga ha!"
I said. Note the sarcasm.

"Bahala ka sa iisipin mo. I'm your friend, Dana. I want the best for you. Sana m
aapreciate mo kahit yung effort ko lang.." She said then left me.

Ginagawa niya para sa akin? Ano?

39th Chapter

Sara's Point of View

"Honey Babes, ngiti naman jan. Birthday na birthday ko eh."

Kausap ko ngayon si Dave dito sa gilid ng pool. Nandito kami sa bahay nila since
kumpleto na naman dito. May bar, entertainment room, swimming pool, etc. San ka
pa? Wala naman yung parents niya eh. Sabagay, kailan ba sila nagstay dito?

"Aish. Tigilan mo nga ako, Dave Cruz. Alam mo namang madami akong problema eh.."
Sabi ko na lang para manahimik siya. Tss. Paano ko ba aayusin yung sa kapatid k
o? Pati si Ynna at Dana? Pati wala pa kaya akong regalo kay Dave. Ang hirap nama
n maging mahirap oh!

"Wala ka na ngang regalo, sinusungitan mo pa ako.." Sabi ni Dave tapos niyakap n


iya ako from behind. Kinikilig ako, shet!!

Kalma lang, Sara. Madami kang problema, mamaya ka na kiligin.

"Alam mo namang may financial problem ako ngayon eh tapos yung kapa--"

Hindi niya ako pinatapos kasi hinalikan niya yung leeg ko. Fck it, Dave Cruz! St
op turning me on. =___=

"Alam mo namang hindi ako materialistic eh.." He said then he continued kissing
my neck. Help me, God!

"Dave naman eh.."

"Dave naman eh.." He mimicked me.

"Gusto mo talaga ng birthday sex noh?" Sinabi ko tapos bigla siyang natawa.

"Sara Gomez, Sara Gomez, iba ka talaga." Tapos tumawa siya ng tumawa.

"Bwisit ka! Eh di walang birthday sex! Manigas ka jan!" I said tapos tumayo na a
ko pero hinila niya ako paupo ulit.

"Wala talagang birthday sex na magaganap, Honey Babes. Birthday love making, mer
on." Then he kissed me full on the lips.

I guess hindi ko na kailangan mag isip ng ireregalo.

--------------------Dana's Point of View

September 13: Dave's Birthday

Under normal circumstances, dapat masaya ako ngayon, kasama ang barkada ko haban
g nagccelebrate ng birthday ni Dave. Pero, isang malaking pero, wala ako sa norm
al circumstances dahil magkagalit kami ni Sara ngayon.

You heard it right, magkagalit kami. Ibang iba sa dating mga naging away namin.
Dati, akala ko yung pinakamalalang pinag awayan namin ay nung hinalikan ko si Da
ve, which i really regret doing so, but what the heck! I can't believe na si Ynn
a Henares ang pinag aawayan namin. Of all people, my God!

"Beb, ngumiti ka naman jan. Birthday na birthday ni Dave eh.." Sabi sakin ni And
y while giving me my iced tea.

"Sorry," i muttered, "Kasi naman!!"

Argh! I'm so pissed that i can't even construct a decent sentence! Kasi naman eh
, nandito si Ynna sa supposed to be 'private' birthday party ni Dave. Paano to n
aging private kung may isang unwanted guest na nakapasok? The hell!

"Let it slide, for now. Let's just enjoy the night, alright?" Andy said as he ki
ssed my forehead.

I nodded in response, "Fine. Wag lang siyang haharang harang sa daan ko or i swe
ar to--"

"No swearing, Dana." Andy warned me.

"Fine. No swearing. Teka nga, pupunta lang ako sa powder room." Then i stormed o
ut from the bar and headed straight to the powder room.

As i entered, "Oh," i said.

Nandito din pala si Skinny Btch. Yeah, i gave her name. Suits her right. She's t
oo skinny and she's a btch.

"Long time no see, Dana." She said while smiling.

I smirked, "Since when did we become friends?" I sarcastically answered.

"Since i came back?"

"Asa ka pa."

"Come on, Dana. For old times' sake, can we at least be decent to one another?"
She pleaded.

"As long as i remembered, wala tayo nung so called 'old times' sake,' Ynna."

She smiled, "Fine then. Okay na naman sa'kin si Cyriel and Sara. I don't need yo
u."

This btch! Ginagalit niya ba talaga ako o ano?!

I took a step closer, "Ikaw, Ynna Henares, hindi pa kita pinapatawad sa ginawa m
ong pang aagaw sa boyfriend ko," i said then i held her face. Tightly.

"You're hurting me," she said habang hawak hawak ko yung mukha niya.

"Sa'yo na si Cyriel, fine! Pero bakit pati si Sara?!" I shouted.

Binitawan ko na yung mukha niya pero nagmarka yung kamay ko. Suits her right.

"Dana Kathryn Ferrer, fine, inagaw ko si Cyriel. I admit. Pero it's been a year,
haven't you moved on yet?" Then she smirked, the oh-so-famous-Ynna Henares' sig
nature smirk, "But Sara? That's a different story. She befriended me, Dana. She.
Befriended. Me."

Don't believe her, Dana. She's lying. Sara would never do that to me. Alam niya
kung gaano ako kagalit sa babaeng 'to. She would never do such thing na alam niy
ang ikakagalit ko..

"You're lying."

"I'm not. Alam mo ba? Nasasakal na siya sa'yo, Dana. All these time, puro ikaw a
ng iniintindi niya. Puro issues sa buhay mo ang problema niya."

"Stop." I said.

"No, i won't. Mabuti nang malaman mo ang totoo," then she came closer, "Naiinis
na siya pero hindi niya pinapakita kasi kaibigan ka niya. Ang dami niyang proble
ma, alam mo bang natanggal sa scholarship yung kapatid niya kaya nammroblema siy
a sa pera ngayon? Hindi di ba? Kasi selfish ka, Dana. Ang selfish selfish mo. Gu
sto mo lahat ng atensyon ng tao, na sa'yo. Hindi mo napapansin na nahihirapan na
sila. Kawawa naman sila na kaibigan mo sila. Kawawa sila.."

"Stop it, Ynna!" I shouted. I tried my best to keep calm but what the hell! I'm
already crying. Could it be na totoo ang sinasabi niya? I'm selfish?

"Truth hurts, Dana. Nahihirapan sila sa'yo. Nasasakal. Who knows? Maybe next wee
k, next month, si Andy naman ang--"

I didn't let her finish because i slapped her.. then she smiled at me?

"Dana? Ynna?"

I turned only to see Sara staring with her eyes wide open.

"Sara, sabi naman sa'yo, hindi ako kayang patawarin ni Dana!" She said then walk
ed out. Crying.

What the hell did just happen?!

--------------Ynna's Point of View

There's really no point in trying to be friends with her. If soulmates really do


exist, then we're soulfighters. We were meant to fight against each other.

As i was talking to her, i saw Sara walking towards us.

"Truth hurts, Dana. Nahihirapan sila sa'yo. Nasasakal. Who knows? Maybe next wee
k, next month, si Andy naman ang--"

She didn't let me finish because she slapped me. Great. Just in time.

"Dana? Ynna?"

She turned only to see Sara staring with her eyes wide open.

If i can't be friends with Dana, then i'll just steal everything from her. Every
thing.

"Sara, sabi naman sa'yo, hindi ako kayang patawarin ni Dana!" I said then walked
out. Crying.

It's showtime.

------------Sara's Point of View

"Punta muna ako ng powder room." Sabi ko kay Dave tapos iniwan ko siya. Aish. Na
gulo tuloy yung damit ko. Ang likot likot talaga ng kamay ng lalaking yun. =___=

Sa right side yung powder room o sa left?

Habang naglalakad ako, may narinig akong nag uusap sa loob. Hindi ko makita kasi
wala akong suot na salamin or contacts ngayon kaya puro shadow lang yung nakiki
ta ko. Baka naman ibang bisita lang ni Dave kaya pumasok ako agad.

Slap.

Pagkalapit na pagkalapit ko, nakita ko agad na sinampal ni Dana si Ynna? Bakit?!

"Sara, sabi naman sa'yo, hindi ako kayang patawarin ni Dana!" Sabi ni Ynna tapos
lumabas siya na umiiyak.

Hindi pa din ako makapagsalita. Sinampal ni Dana si Ynna. Tumakbo si Ynna palaba
s. Umiiyak si Dana sa harap ko. Ano ang gagawin ko?

"Dana, ano'ng--"

Hindi niya ako pinatapos, "Tell me, am i a burden to you?" Tanong niya habang um
iiyak siya.

"Ano ba namang tanong yan? Of course not!"

"Then why didn't you tell me na may financial problems ka pala! I thought we're
friends!"

"Because," bakit nga ba? Bakit ko nga ba hindi sinabi sa kanya?

"Because you don't trust me. Simple as that."

"Shut up, Dana. Hindi ko sinabi sa'yo because you already have too much on your
plate. Ayoko ng makidagdag pa.."

Tumalikod siya tapos umiiyak ulit, "Then you admitted, i am a burden." Then she
walked out.

Great, Sara! Akala ko ba ginagawa mo yun para tulungan si Dana? Eh bakit parang
iba ang nangyayari?!

--------------Dana's Point of View

I am a burden.

I went out to get some fresh air. I've been crying tons. Baka hikain na ako nito
. I headed straight to Dave's rooftop for some alone time.

"You're all screwed up, Dana Kathryn Ferrer. You're a fcking extra baggage." I w
hispered to myself.

"Who told you that?"

"Holy Jesus," I said while placing my hand on my chest, "Why do you have to be a
ppearing everywhere, Cyriel?!"

"Nauna ako dito," he said then he sat with his back leaning against the wall.

"Fine." Then i got up and started walking.

"Are we really doing this, Dana?" He said then i stopped, "This whole chasing th
ing, it tires me. Kung ayaw mo na talaga sa'kin, then please let's be friends. I
'm begging you, please consider me as a friend.."

Am i a burden to Cyriel, too? Nahihirapan din ba siya dahil sa akin?

"Am i a burden to you?" I blurted out.

He got up and stood in front of me, "A burden?" Then he stopped thinking, "You'r
e not. I may be doing things for you, but that doesn't make you a burden, Dana.
I'm doing these things because i love you, that's different from being a burden.
."

"What things?"

He placed his hands inside his pocket, "Things. Things. Things i regret at times
."

"Then you do regret helping me." I said.

He came close then pat my head, like the old times, "Partially? I lost you becau
se of those things.. But then i want you to be happy. I can sacrifice for that.
So please, stop thinking of yourself as a burden because you're not.. So, are we
now friends?"

Cyriel Edrian Perez.

I nodded, "Friends."

------------Cyriel's Point of View

"Am i a burden to you?" Dana suddenly asked.

I got up and stood in front of her, "A burden?" Then i stopped to think, "You're
not. I may be doing things for you, but that doesn't make you a burden, Dana. I
'm doing these things because i love you, that's different from being a burden..
"

"What things?"

I then placed my hands inside my pocket, "Things. Things. Things i regret at tim
es."

Things i regret at night. Things i regret whenever i see you and Andy together.
Things i regret when i am alone.

"Then you do regret helping me." She said.

Do i regret helping her?

"Partially? I lost you because of those things.. But then i want you to be happy
. I can sacrifice for that. So please, stop thinking of yourself as a burden bec
ause you're not.. So, are we now friends?"

I lost her because of Ynna. But i never blame her for that. It's my own choice.

She nodded, "Friends."

Friends. I think i can handle that.

I offered my hand, "Hello, I am Cyriel Edrian Perez, you are?"

She took my hand and shook it, "Dana. Dana Kathryn Ferrer."

"Dana. A beautiful name for a beautiful lady. Do you mind me asking why are you
crying?"

"Naah. Just a petty fight with my best friend."

"Nag away kayo ni Sara?!" I asked.

"We just met pero kilala mo agad ang best friend ko? You must be a stalker." She
tried to crack a joke but i didn't laugh.

"Bakit kayo nag away?" I asked again.

"Yung girlfriend mo kasi eh.." She said.

"Oh? Ano'ng ginawa mo sa kanya?"

"Shut up. I mean, si Ynna kasi!" She said with full irritation.

"What did she do?"

"Ewan ko. Basta. Burden, burden, burden."

Sinabi ni Ynna na pabigat si Dana?!

----------------Ynna's Point of View

"Let's talk."

Cyriel dragged me to the dark side of the garden. This is about her. Again.

"What?!"

"Ano na naman ba ang pinagsasabi mo kay Dana?!" He snared at me.

"The truth." I replied.

"The truth? Eh di dapat sinabi mo sa kanya yung totoong dahilan. Na may sakit ka
. Na ginagawa namin to kasi may sakit ka."

1 year. Akala ko sa loob ng isang taon matututunan din akong mahalin ni Cyriel k
ahit papano. Hindi pa rin pala. Ginagawa pa rin niya to dahil dun.

"At may sakit ako dahil sa kanya. Dahil sa kanya!"

"Stop it, Ynna! Walang pumilit sa'yo na gawin yun. It was your choice."

"I did it because of her."

"Because of your selfishness."

"Because i love you." I said, looking into his eyes. Kailan mo ba ako makikita,
Cyriel?

"You don't love me. Love is not selfish, Ynna. If you really do love me, sana hi
nayaan mo na lang ako kasama si Dana dati.."

"I don't care if i'm selfish as long as i have you."

"You have me now, aren't you contented?! Please lang, spare her." He said. Almos
t begging.

"I won't. She killed my sister, she caused me this fcking illness, she stole you
r heart! I won't stop until i destroy her!"

He slapped me. For the first time, Cyriel slapped me.

"Tigilan mo na 'to, Ynna. Parang awa mo na.." He then kneeled in front of me.

Damn you, Ferrer! What is it about you para magpakababa ng ganito si Cyriel?!

"Hindi ako titigil, Cyriel. I'll crush her until she can't show her face. Ipapai
ntindi ko sa kanya na siya ang dahilan kung bakit ako mamamatay, ipapamukha ko s
a kanya na pinatay niya ang kapatid ko! Worse comes to worst, sasabihin ko sa pa
rents ko na siya ang dahilan kung bakit sila mawawalan ng dalawang anak! You hav
e no idea what they can do, Cyriel."

He stood up, "Marry me then, Ynna. I'll give you my name. Just please, tigilan m
o na siya.."

Sara's Point of View

"Are you out of your mind, Cyriel?!"

Kasama ko ngayon si Cy sa labas ng bahay nila Dave. Grabe. Hindi ko kinaya ang m
ga pangyayari sa loob. Parang, 'shet, ano nangyari?' Ang bilis eh, bigla na lang
, galit na galit na sa akin si Dana, tapos bigla bigla na lang, engaged to be ma

rried na si Cyriel kay Ynna!

"Siguro nga.." Sabi niya tapos tinakip niya yung kamay niya sa mukha niya.

"Pero kasi naman, Cyriel! Hindi ba masyado na 'yung gagawin mo? Kasal na yun eh!
Pang habang buhay na 'yun! Ibang usapan na 'yun.."

Huminga siya ng malalim, "What's done is done, Sara. Tapos na eh, nakapagpropose
na ako."

"Pwede mo pa namang bawiin, di ba? Sabihin mo nabigla ka lang o kaya joke time l
ang!" Pamimilit ko sa kanya. Hindi na 'to pwede. Oo, napatunayan ko na na mahal
na mahal talaga ni Cyriel si Dana, pero 'tong papakasalan niya si Ynna para kay
Dana? Sobra na 'to!

"Wag na.."

"Ha? Don't tell me gusto mo na talagang magpakasal sa kanya? In love ka ba kay Y


nna?" Tanong ko sa kanya. Baka naman kasi na develop na din siya, mabait na nama
n si Ynna. Nagbago na siya.

"Alam mo naman na si Dana lang ang mahal ko eh."

"Eh bakit mo siya papakasalan?"

"Napag isipan ko na din 'to, kung hindi din naman si Dana ang ihaharap ko sa alt
ar, kahit sino na lang siguro," tapos bigla siyang natawa, "eh nagkataong si Ynn
a. Bonus na siguro 'to, natulungan ko na si Dana, napasaya ko pa si Ynna. Iisipi
n ko na lang, nagccharity work ako."

Bigla naman akong natawa sa charity work niya. May pagka comedian din pala si Cy
riel. Ngayon ko lang napansin.

"Pero.. si Dana? Paano si Dana?" Tanong ko sa kanya, baka sakaling magbago yung
isip niya..

"The one that got away.." Mahina niyang sabi.

"Huh?"

"Search mo yung lyrics," tapos tumayo siya, "Alis na ako, sabihin mo na lang kay
Dave happy birthday ulit."

-----------------Dave's Point of View

"Seryoso ka nga?!" Halos maibuga ko na sa mukha ni Cyriel yung iniinom ko. Nandi
to siya sa bahay ko. Kakatapos lang ng inuman kagabi sa birthday ko, nag iinuman
na naman kami ni Cyriel. Anubayan.

"Oo nga. Ang kulet niyong dalawa ni Sara, bagay talaga kayo." Tapos ininom niya
yung San Mig light.

"Tsk. Matindi na talaga sira ng ulo mo," tapos ininom ko din yung sakin, "Sino b
a ang may sakit talaga? Si Ynna o ikaw? Ang labo mo, pare."

Bigla na lang siyang natawa, "Oo nga yata. May sira na yata ako sa ulo."

"Eh pano yan? Suko ka na kay Dana?"

"Ayoko pa pero.. Wala na, Dave. Mahal na niya si Andy." Sabi ni Cyriel tapos tum
ahimik siya. Ang tagal ko ng kaibigan 'tong lalaking to, simula pagkabata magkak
asama na kaming tatlo. Ngayon ko lang siya nakitang ganito, yung parang wala ng
buhay. Kahit siguro ano ang dumating sa kanya, tatanggapin na lang niya ng hindi
nag iisip. Malala na ang kaibigan ko.

"Pano mo naman nasabi?"

"Wala lang, nararamdaman ko lang."

"Eh baliw ka pala talaga eh! Wala naman palang sinabi, nagcconclude ka agad. Si
Dana yun, Cyriel. Alam mo namang malakas ang sapak nun sa utak kagaya ni Sara. P
ag sinabi niyang gusto niya, hindi talaga, pag hindi niya gusto, gusto niya tala
ga. Magulo kaya ang isip nun." Paliwanag ko sa kanya. Hindi naman sa kinakampiha
n ko si Cyriel, kaibigan ko din si Andy. Pero kasi, kung papakasalan lang din ni
Cyriel si Ynna, ipagtutulakan ko na lang siya kay Dana. Panghabang buhay ang ka
sal kaya, wala pa namang divorce sa Pilipinas. =___=

"Basta, hindi ko kayang ipaliwanag eh. Nung nag usap kami kagabi.. parang wala n
a eh."

"Sigurado ka? Eh ang tagal kang hinintay ni Dana! Almost two years, pare! Sa tin
gin mo ganun ganun ka na lang makakalimutan nun?"

"Ewan. Teka, bakit mo ba 'to sinasabi? Lagot ka kay Andy niyan."

Tignan mo 'tong lalaking 'to! Magpapakasal na sa babaeng hindi naman niya mahal
at lahat, si Andy pa ang naisip! Meron pa bang mas selfless sa kanya?

"Okay lang yan. What you don't know won't hurt you."

"Ulol."

Tapos biglang nagring yung phone niya, "Hello? Dito kila Dave.. Ngayon na? Sige.
" Tapos binaba na niya.

"Sino yun?"

"Si Ynna."

"Bakit daw?"

"Nandun na daw yung gagawa ng wedding cake."

Naibuga ko yung iniinom ko, "Bakit ang bilis naman yata?!"

Di ba kakapropose niya lang kahapon?!

"As soon as possible sabi ng parents niya. Eight years, pare. Eight years lang.
Kaya ko 'to."

--------------Dana's Point of View

It's been 3 days simula nung birthday ni Dave. Tatlong araw na din kaming hindi
nag uusap ni Sara. Actually, sinusubukan niya akong kausapin pero hindi ko siya
pinapansin. Magsama sila ng Ynna niya!!

"Beb, spaced out ka na naman? Problema?"

I sighed, "Same old, same old.."

Niyakap niya ako, "Kausapin mo na kasi. Ikaw din, baka maging forever ex best fr
iend mo na siya.."

Hinampas ko siya sa braso, "Don't say such things! Baka magkatotoo!" Tapos nag k
nock on wood ako.

"Tignan mo 'to, pag nandiyan si Sara, todo makaiwas, pag wala naman, namimiss. A
ng gulo mo talaga."

"Mahal mo naman." Tapos nag belat ako sa kanya.

"Mahal na mahal na mahal," tapos nagkiss kami.

"DK!!" Naputol yung kiss namin dahil kay Kim. Asar lang. =___=

"Why?!" Naiirita kong sabi. Yung kiss ko, Andyyyy.

"You won't believe it!!" She said.

"Ano nga? Cliff hanger naman masyado eh."

"Kasi---- Ano ba yan! Hindi ko masabi!!" Tapos kinuha niya yung smoothie ko at i
ninom. Talk about gross. Nainuman ko na yun eh. =___=

"Kalma lang, Kim. Ano ba yang balitang nasagap mo na halos hindi ka na makapagsa
lita?" Ano nga kasi yun? Na curious tuloy ako bigla bigla. Grabe lang kasi maka
react eh. News of the year ba ito?

"Okay, here it goes. Wag kang mabibigla ha?"

I nodded.

"Ikakasal na si Cyriel at Ynna!"

Ikakasal na si Cyriel at Ynna!

Ikakasal na si Cyriel at Ynna!

Ikakasal na si Cyriel at Ynna!

Ikakasal na si Cyriel at Ynna!

Ikakasal na si Cyriel at Ynna!

Ikakasal na si Cyriel at Ynna!?!

Ano daw?!

"Are you nuts, Kim? Ano'ng ikakasal? Eh nag aaral pa kaya tayo!" I said. Almost
shouting actually.

Bigla kong naramdaman na tinanggal ni Andy yung kamay niya sa kamay ko. Selosong
boyfriend. =___=

"Beb naman! Wag kang magselos, okay? Friends kami ni Cyriel kaya natural mag ala
la ako." Paliwanag ko.

"Friends?"

"Yup. Friends. So quit being jealous, alright?"

Then he nodded.

"So now, Kim. Start explaining. Where the hell on earth did you hear that news?!
"

Huminga siya ng malalim, "Ganito kasi yun, di ba alam niyo naman na boyfriend ko
si Clarence ngayon? Eh di pinuntahan ko siya sa bahay nila. Hindi ko naman alam
na kapatid niya si Cyriel! Mga bwisit kayo, hindi niyo man lang sinabi sa akin!
!" Tapos pinalo palo niya kami ni Andy. Baliw talaga.

"Anyways, nagulat ako kasi nandun yung parents nila. Eh kasi ang alam ko, hindi
umuuwi ng Pilipinas yun kasi sa States naka based yung main business nila, so na
gulat ako nung nandun sila. Tapos ayun, pinakilala ako ni Clarence bilang katulo
ng niya. Hayop na yun!!" Tapos nagsisigaw siya. Mukang timang lang. =___=

"Tapos yun nga, nalaman kong kaya sila umuwi dito ay para sa kasal ni Ynna at Cy
riel. What the heck di ba? Hindi to joke time kasi umuwi ang parents ni Cyriel!!
"

Okay, Dana. Breathe in, breathe out..

AAAAAAAGH! Bakit ako naiinis?!!

"Beb, san ka pupunta?"

"Magsshopping." Tapos umalis na ako agad.

---------------Andy's Point of View

calling..
Dave Cruz

Tinawagan ko si Dave pagkatapos na pagkatapos umalis ni Dana. Kailangan kong mal


aman kung totoo ba yung sinasabi ni Kim.

("Bakit?")

"Seryoso ba? Papakasalan niya talaga yun?"

("Oo eh. Ewan ko ba dun.")

So, totoo pala talaga. Ano bang nakain ni Cyriel?!

"Nasan ka ba? Puntahan kita."

("Nandito ako sa Meero's.")

Tapos binaba ko na yung tawag.

Alam ko niloko ko si Cyriel pero pakakasalan si Ynna? Wala sa usapan namin yun!
Kaibigan ko yun eh, hindi ako papayag na sirain niya yung buhay niya ng ganun ga
nun na lang. Hindi niya naman mahal si Ynna kaya bakit niya papakasalan yun?

After 20 mins, nakarating na ako sa Meero's. Nandun si Dave sa gilid kaya pinunt
ahan ko na siya. Umorder na din kami ng pagkain.

"Bakit niya daw ba gagawin yun?!" Naiinis na tanong ko kay Dave. Sino ba naman k
asi ang hindi maiinis?

"Alam mo naman yung dahilan, nagtatanong ka pa. Seriously, Andy, kailan mo ba sa


sabihin kay Dana?" Tanong sa akin ni Dave.

"Hindi ko alam. Ewan ko."

Natatakot ako. Natatakot ako na pag sinabi ko kay Dana, iiwan niya ako.. Hindi k
o alam ang gagawin ko pag iniwan niya ulit ako. Kung dati kinaya ko pa, ngayon h
indi na. Mahal na mahal ko na siya..

"So papayag ka na makasal yung kaibigan natin dun sa babaeng yun dahil sa'yo?"

"Dave naman kasi, hindi naman yun ganun kadali.."

Iniisip ko palang, natatakot na ako.

"Sasabihin mo din naman sa kanya yun eventually, why delay, Andy? Kailan mo sasa
bihin? Kapag kasal na si Cyriel sa babaeng yun? Seriously, ganyan ka na ba ka se
lfish?"

"Pero.. si Dana lang ba talaga ang makakapigil?"

Hindi ba siya pipigilan ng magulang niya? Papayag ba silang magpakasal ang anak
nila sa babaeng yun?!

"Si Dana lang. Sabi nga niya sa'kin, kung hindi din daw si Dana ang papakasalan
niya, kahit sino na lang daw. Eh kahit siguro si Nof ang ipakasal ko dun papayag
yun eh."

"Tangina naman."

"Oo, Andy. Tangina talaga kaya sabihin mo na. Maawa ka naman kay Cyriel. Papayag
ka bang makasal siya dun? Tangina! Konsensya naman!"

"Sasabihin ko na.. Sa Thursday. Wag lang bukas, Dave. Susulitin ko lang bukas ha
bang magkasama pa kami.."

---------------Ynna's Point of View

"Danielle? Where the hell? Kanina pa ako dito sa Meero's!"

I'll be meeting Danielle, our wedding planner, here at Meero's. Supposedly, kani
na pa dapat siya dito.

("I'll be late. Eat first. Sorry.")

I'm left with no option, kakain muna ako. Pasalamat siya i'm in good mood. I'll
be meeting Cyriel's parents tonight. I have no plans of ruining my day.

I ordered vegetable salad and fruit juice. I stood up and walked towards the pow
der room nung makita ko si Dave at Andy sa gilid ng restobar. Ano'ng ginagawa nu
ng dalawang yun dito?

I silently went near them to eavsdrop.

"Si Dana lang. Sabi nga niya sa'kin, kung hindi din daw si Dana ang papakasalan
niya, kahit sino na lang daw. Eh kahit siguro si Nof ang ipakasal ko dun papayag
yun eh." Dave said.

I couldn't care less. Ako ang papakasalan ni Cyriel. Wala na akong pakielam sa i
isipin nila.

"Tangina naman."

"Oo, Andy. Tangina talaga kaya sabihin mo na. Maawa ka naman kay Cyriel. Papayag
ka bang makasal siya dun? Tangina! Konsensya naman!"

"Sasabihin ko na.. Sa Thursday. Wag lang bukas, Dave. Susulitin ko lang bukas ha
bang magkasama pa kami.."

What?! Sasabihin niya kay Dana sa Thursday?!

I won't let this happen!

calling..
Mom

("Hija, may problema ba kay Danielle?")

"No, mom. Can i ask for a favor?"

("Of course. Anything for you. What is it?")

"I want a civil wedding tomorrow, Wednesday, mom."

("Civil wedding? I thought you want a church wedding?")

"Yes. But i want to be married tomorrow. Will you arrange that for me?")

("Of course, Ynna. You know i'll do anything..")

Then the line went dead.

Dana, i'll make sure na bago mo malaman, ako na si Mrs. Cyriel Edrian Perez.

Cyriel's Point of View

"Mom? Dad?" What are they doing here? Akala ko nasa States sila?

Lumapit si mom sa akin, "Cyriel, baby, why didn't you tell me that you're alread
y planning to get married?"

"Who told you that?" I asked her.

Tinignan ko si Clarence but he just shrugged his shoulders.

"Your girlfriend called me and informed me about the proposal you did few days a
go." Tss. Hindi naman talaga masyadong excited si Ynna.

Umupo ako dun sa sofa, "Aah."

"What's with the lack of reaction, baby?"

"Nothing, mom. Stressed lang," i answered.

"Well by the way, why didn't you introduce her to us when you were still in the
States?"

I just shrugged. Malay ko ba na aabot kaming dalawa sa kasalan? I was originally


planning just to help her. I didn't plan of giving her my name. The thought of
waking up every morning, seeing her face is torture.

"Anyhow, we invited her to have dinner with us tonight."

"What?!" I suddenly blurted out. Palagi na nga siyang nakabuntot sa'kin dahil sa

wedding preparations na yan, pati ba naman sa bahay namin, makikita ko siya? Ca


n't i have a break?

"We need to see if she's worthy of you, baby," if you just know how hideous she
is, mom..

"Fine then." I answered. Ano ba ang magagawa ko? Sigurado naman akong hindi papa
yag ang parents ko na hindi siya makilala. Besides, alam kong masaya si dad dahi
l future investors ang pamilya nila Ynna.

"Before i forgot," biglang tinignan ni mom si Clarence.

"Why?!" Iritadong sabi ni Clarence.

"Invite your girlfriend."

"I don't have a girlfriend, mom."

"Shut up, Clarence. Invite her tonight, makabawi ka man lang sa ginawa mo sa kan
ya the other day."

He smirked before answering, "Then invite her. I don't even know her number."

Biglang niyakap ni mom si dad, feeling talaga nila, teenager pa sila. (._.)

"Clarence! Hindi ka ba makikinig sa mommy mo?!" Patay na. Sumigaw na si Dad.

"Alright. Geez," then he mumbled something, "hindi ko naman kasi talaga girlfrie
nd yun. Bwisit," then he looked at me, "Hoy!"

"Ano?!" I answered back. Ganito talaga kami mag usap.

"Sabihin mo nga dun sa babaeng yun pumunta siya dito."

"Eh kung ayoko?"

"Eh basagin ko kaya yung windshield ng sasakyan mo?"

I smirked, "Gawin mo. May insurance yun. Tss."

Kinuha ko yung cellphone ko tapos sinend ko sa kanya yung number. Bahala na siya
.

----------------Ynna's Point of View

"Midnight blue and white it is," Danielle said.

"Do you think it's a good combination?" I asked her. We're still here in Meero's
, talking about wedding stuffs.

Even though i'm planning to have a civil wedding tomorrow, the preparations for
our church wedding is still on going.

"Of course. It looks classy," she agreed, "Well, how about the entourage?"

Entourage? Hmm. I haven't thought about that yet.

"Who'll be the bride's maid?"

Sino nga kaya?

"Dana. Dana will be my bride's maid."

Then i smiled to myself.

"Good to hear na may bride's maid ka na."

"I know. Well, i need to go. I'll be meeting my future in laws tonight," then i

stood up and took my purse with me.

--------------Kim's Point of View

"Hey, ever heard of the word smile? Geez, Dana, you're seriously scaring me!" I
said to her. What the hell lang naman kasi! Ang laki ng eye bags niya! Eye bagga
ge na nga ata!

"Sorry naman daw, Kim. Masamang magpuyat?" She said then pinatong niya ulit yung
ulo niya sa lamesa. Pasalamat siya walang masyadong tao ngayon sa caf. Walang m
akakakita sa emo moments niya. Ew lang.

"Magpuyat your ass," i told her, "If i know, bothered ka lang kasi nalaman mo na
ikakasal si Cyriel kay Ynna!!"

"Where in the hell did you get that idea?!"

I laughed, "Defensive much? Seriously, DK, get a grip of yourself. Past is past,
move on na."

"Moved on na nga eh. Past tense. Wag mong idahilan na mahina ka sa English kaya
hindi mo maintindihan, Miranda."

Argh! Nakakainis! Porke ba mahina ako sa academic, hindi na ako pwedeng maging r
ational at magbigay ng advice? Lagi na lang akong tinetake for granted dahil sa
bwisit na reason na yan. Eh sa mahina ako dun eh, anong magagawa ko? Psh.

"Whatever, DK. Word of advice lang ha," Tapos bigla siyang tumawa, "Hoy! Narinig
ko yung tawa mo!!"

"Sorry, hindi ako sanay makarinig ng ganyang phrases mula sa'yo eh. Overwhelmed
lang."

"Bwisit! Anyways, if i were you, stop being so bitchy about Cy and Ynna's wed. H

e's your ex, remember? You broke up for a reason; because something's wrong. Min
san may mga incompatibilities talaga na hindi maaayos, and in your case, hindi k
ayo ang may problema. The situation you're both in ang problema. Fate na mismo a
ng gumagawa ng paraan para hadlangan kayo ni Cy, can't you see? Just better stic
k with Andy as for now. Kasi for me, kung kayo talaga ni Cy, magiging kayo din i
n the end. Stop being non conformist, DK. Just go with the flow, malay mo naman,
maging in laws pa tayo," then i winked at her. Well, talaga! Magiging Mrs. Clar
ence Perez ako by hook or by crook!

Tinaas niya bigla yung kilay niya at tinignan ako, "Tapos ka ng mag monologue?"

"Ugh! Kainis ka talaga!! Ang haba kaya ng sinabi ko!!"

She laughed, "Fine, fine. I'll stop being bitchy, but don't expect me na magigin
g masaya for her! My god! I seriously can't! I wish all the worst for her!"

"I get it. Never na yata kayong magkakasundo ni Ynna."

"Never talaga! Bwisit! Just hearing her name makes me furious! Hindi ko pa nakak
alimutan yung frame up na ginawa niya sa'kin nung birthday ni Dave!!" Then she w
ent hysterical again. Oo nga pala, yung nangyari nung birthday ni Dave. Kawawa n
aman si DK, na set up siya nung witch na yun. Aish, nahati tuloy ang barkada. Si
Nof, sinasamahan si Sara, ako naman, si DK. Bwisit talaga yang si Ynna! Hindi l
ang lovelife ang sinisira, ngayon pati pagkakaibigan na. Haaay, kung makakasal m
an sila ni Cyriel, ayokong maging in law siya if ever na pipikutin ko si Clarenc
e. Life is so complicated. (._.)

"Hoy, nagriring yang phone mo," DK said. Ano ba yan, masyado na akong napapaisip
, so not me.

unregistered number
calling..

Sino to? Hmm. Baka prank caller na naman. Bakit ba kasi tawag sila ng tawag?

"Kanina pa kaya nagriring yan, sagutin mo na. Baka importante," sabi ni DK.

Aish. Sasagutin na nga.

"Who the hell are you?"

("Slut, be here at 7 pm. Gusto makita ng parents ko ang katulong ko. Pati yung p
ayatot pupunta din, wag kang feeling.")

Slut? Aba't ang kapal ng mukha na'to!!

"Excuse me? Baka wrong number ka!"

("I'm not.")

Wait, familiar tong boses na 'to ah!

"Boyfie?"

("Stop calling me boyfie. Nakakadiri ka.")

OMG!! Tinawagan ako ni Clarence!!

"Wait, bakit hindi yung number mo ang gamit mo?" I asked. May number niya kaya a
ko kahit wala siyang number ko!!

("Asa ka pang tatawagan kita gamit yun.")

"Eh kanino tong gamit mo?"

("Sa katulong. Katulong naman kita so okay lang na number din ng katulong ang ga
mitin ko pangtawag sa'yo.")

"Aba---- UGH!! DK! Binabaan niya ako ng phone!!"

Tawa ng tawa si DK.

"Hahaha! Epic talaga kayo! Love team of the year!!"

"Ang sama mo! Inaapi na ako ng kapatid ng ex mo, tinatawanan mo pa ako. Salamat
talaga."

Nagpahid siya ng luha, naiyak na siya katatawa, "Sorry, kasi naman, nawawala ang
problema ko sa'yo. Anyways, bakit daw siya napatawag?"

Sasasabihin ko ba sa kanya? Oo na nga, ng matigil na yung ilusyon niya kay Cyrie


l. =___=

"Family dinner ata, kasama din si Ynna. Gustong makilala ng parents nila yung gi
rlfriend ng mga anak nila."

Bigla siyang natahimik, "Aah. Ganun ba."

Tumayo siya, "Umuwi ka na kaya at magbihis? 5 na!" Tapos iniwan niya ako. Uh-oh,
someone's jealous. (._.)

------------Nof's Point of View

"Sara naman! Tumigil ka na nga kakaiyak. Nakakabanas na." I said. Haaay, hindi k
o talaga forte ang pag ccomfort. Kahit nga magkanda iyak iyak na sa inis si Kim
sa boyfriend niya hindi ko kinocomfort eh. Pero nasan ako ngayon? Sa apartment n
i Sara, taga bigay ng tissue. =___=

"Nof naman eh! Best friend ka ng boyfriend ko kaya best friend na din kita!! Ico
mfort mo naman ako!" Sara said tapos umiyak na naman siya. Haay, Ynna Henares. K
asalanan mo kung bakit ako nandito ngayon eh.

"Whatever, Sara. Kausapin mo na lang si DK. Bibigay din yun for sure."

"Hindi nga eh. Ilang araw ko na kaya siya kunikulit pero wala pa din."

"Then kulitin mo lalo. Bibigay din yun, wag ka lang sumuko."

"Haaaay. Bakit ba kasi may ganito pang issue? Puro issue! Kabanas!"

"Ikaw naman kasi, alam mo namang may hate bone na katawan yang si DK pagdating k
ay Ynna, sama ka pa din ng sama." I explained. Bigla naman siyang natahimik.

"I have my reasons, Nof."

"Then tell her your reason. Malapit ng mag sembreak, may outing pa kaya tayo sa
Galera, mag ayos na kayo, ples."

Huminga siya ng malalim, "I can't. It's not my story to tell."

"Then magtiis ka na hindi ka niya pinapansin. Ayaw pa kasing sabihin. Tss."

Haaaaaaaay, sana lang talaga may alam ako sa mga nangyayari. I feel like an idio
t. Masyadong clueless.

---------------

Kim's Point of View

Nandito na ako sa Perez estate. Kaka park ko lang ng baby ko ng makita kong pala
bas din si Ynna ng sasakyan niya. Talk about coincidences. (._.)

"Kim, i never thought i could see you here."

I just smiled, wala akong time makipag usap sa kanya. Mamaya ma brainwash niya d
in ako. Si Sara nga na best friend ni DK, na brain wash niya! Ako pa kaya na sem
i best friend pa lang? Oh noes! I won't let that happen!

"Why are you here, by the way?" She asked me again, hindi ba siya marunong ng bo
dy language?

"Clarence." I answered. Please naman, Ynna. Magets mo sana na ayaw kong makipag
usap!!

"Ooh, so you're with Cy's brother pala." Then she smiled. Creepy lang.

Thank goodness nakita ko si Clarence sa loob! Now i have reason para iwanan tong
witch na 'to!!

"I have to go, i'll just check on Clarence," aalis na sana ako pero hinawakan ni
ya yung braso ko. DK! Hindi ko sinasadya na malagyan ng skinny bitch virus ang s
kin ko!!

"We were friends before, right?"

"Were nga, Ynna. Past tense. Ibig sabihin, hindi na ngayon." I answered back. Na
gagaya na ako sa past tense statements ni DK.

"Kim, i understand na galit ka sa'kin dahil kaibigan mo si Dana, but can't you s
ee? Nilalason niya lang ang---"

"Please lang, Ynna. Don't talk behind Dana's back. She's my friend. And please,
don't try na magpaawa sa akin, hindi tatalab. I was your friend, alam ko na yang
mga spiel mo. Please lang, spare me."

Ngumiti siya, "Fine then. Let's just pretend this didn't happen."

"No need to tell me," then i smiled. Ugh!

Naglalakad na siya but, "Technically, magiging kapatid ko na si Clarence, Kim. D


o the math, be nice to me." Then she walked away. Bwisit! As if naman papakingga
n ka ng unggoy na yun kahit maging Perez ka din!!

After my encounter with Ynna, nakita ko si Clarence. Well, i won't elaborate on


this kasi maiinis lang ako. Nung nasa dining room na kami, nakita ko ulit yung p
arents nila. Thank God, alam na nila na hindi ako katulong ngayon!!

"Well, as we all know, we gathered here tonight para makilala ang partners ng an
ak ko," tapos tumingin si Tita sa amin ni Ynna. Ngiting ngiti naman ang witch. P
sh. Feeling masyado.

"Let's eat first," sabi ni tita. Haaay, bakit ba ang galing ng talent ni witch?
Para siyang may split personality. Yung isa, akala mo anghel sa bait, yung isa n
aman, bitch. Nakakainggit yung talent niya. (._.)

Habang kumakain kami, biglang nagtanong si tita kay Ynna, "So, hija, tell us abo
ut yourself."

Tapos ngiting ngiti naman si witchy! Akala mo ang bait bait habang nagsasalita.
Sinabi niya kay tito at tita na governor nga yung father niya then yung iba nila
ng business. Show off! Natutuwa naman yata ang parents nila kasi nga mayaman ang
family ni Ynna. Siyempre, investment din kaya siya! Eh bakit? Mayaman din kaya
si DK!!

"I really approve my son's taste," biglang sabi ni tito. ZOMG!! Don't tell such
things, tito! Isang malaking kasinungalingan!

"Salamat po, tito.." Sabi ni witchy na pa sweet. Yuck. Pwedeng magsuka dito? As
in like now?

Bigla namang may sumipa sa legs ko, "What the---"

Hindi ko natuloy yung sinasabi ko kasi biglang nagtinginan silang lahat sa akin.
Bwisit. Muntik na akong mag curse sa harap nila. (._.)

I then smiled, "Hehe, ano po yun, tito, tita?"

"Wala, hija." Tapos balik ulit sila sa pagkausap kay Ynna. Bwisit talaga tong un
ggoy na to! Kita ng busy ako sa paglait kay Ynna sa utak ko eh!!

Anyways, nakikinig ako sa usapan nila. Nakakabwisit makakita ng bitch na pinupur


i sa harap mo na akala mo isa siyang mabait na bata. Seriously. Disturbing scene
!

"So, bakit kayo nagmamadaling magpakasal ng anak ko?" Tita asked.

Nagsmile muna si witchy bago sumagot, "Honestly, nabigla din ako, tita. Nagpropo
se bigla si Cy.. and i just can't say no.. I love him too much." Then nagblush s
iya. Pati ba naman pagbblush, kaya niyang controlin?!

Nakita ko namang nagsmirk si Cyriel. Haha.

"Well then, wala na pala kaming magagawa. Let's just inform us kung ano ang kail
angan naming gawin for the wedding.."

"Of course, tita."

"By the way, ikaw, Clarence? Wala ka pa bang balak magpropose? Naunahan ka pa ni
Cyriel!" Sabi ni dad niya, nasamid naman ako bigla dun!

Tapos kami na yung pinag usapan nila.

-----------------Dana's Point of View

"Baby, hindi ka na naman kakain? Sabi ni yaya, kagabi ka pa hindi kumakain ah.."
Mom said as she entered my room. Ang daldal talaga ni yaya. =___=

"I'm on a diet, mom."

"You sure?"

"Yup. Tsaka may portfolio akong ginagawa kaya hindi ako bumababa masyado." I exp
lained. Hindi ako bitter sa kasal nila noh! In fact, naaawa ako kay Cy kasi ikak
asal siya sa skinny bitch na yun! Buti na lang talaga at narinig ko na may weddi
ng gown designer na silang nakuha. Akala ko ako na naman ang kukunin niya eh! Ma
kikita niya talaga! Lalagyan ko ng madaming pin sa loob yung damit niya!

Tapos bumaba na si mom. Nag iwan naman siya ng breakfast dito sa side table ko.
Hmm, ano kayang nangyari nung dinner ni Kim kagabi? Sabi ko tawagan niya ako for
details eh!

Habang nagddrawing ako para sa portfolio project ko, nakita ko nakatayo si Andy
sa gilid ng pinto ko habang nakatingin sa akin, "Ang creepy mo," i said. Nakaka
conscious kaya kung makatingin siya sa akin.

"Sorry. Kinakabisado ko lang yung itsura mo," he said.

"Shut up, Andy. Para namang mamamatay na ako niyan sa inaarte mo eh!"

Tapos lumapit siya sa akin at umupo sa gilid ng bed ko, "Date tayo?" He suddenly
asked.

Napatingin naman ako bigla, "Seriously? Impulse date?"

Humiga siya sa kama ko, "Sige na, beb. Minsan lang ako mag aya eh.."

"Pero kasi--"

"Please?"

Sasama ba ako? May project akong ginagawa eh! Eto na yung hype ko para gumawa ng
project eh..

"Please? I promise, hindi na kita kukulitin after this."

Haay, "Fine. Bihis lang ako."

Nagbihis na ako tapos nagpaalam kami kay mom. Syempre pinayagan kami, malakas si
Andy sa kanila eh. =___=

"San ba tayo pupunta?"

"Tagaytay.."

O_O

"Ano?!" I shouted. Hello, nasa Makati kaya kami! Tapos traffic pa!

"Chill lang, beb. 2 hours drive lang naman."

"Pano ako magcchill? Sabi mo ibabalik mo ako ng hapon!"

"I will, okay?"

Tapos tumahimik na ako. Nagdrive na lang siya ng nagdrive. Natulog na din ako ka
si puyat pa ako. Hinintay ko kaya yung tawag ni Kim kagabi!

Nung pag gising ko, wala na si Andy sa driver's seat. Tinignan ko yung oras sa p
hone ko, 11:30 na pala. Lumabas ako sa sasakyan, buti na lang malamig dito sa Ta
gaytay kahit magttanghali na.

Niyakap ko si Andy from behind, "Sorry sa pagsigaw sigaw ko kanina ha? Puyat lan
g. Sorry, beb." Tapos hinigpitan ko yung yakap ko.

"Okay lang. Sanay na." Tapos hinampas ko siya, "Ang sama ng ugali nito!!"

"Sinasabi ko lang naman na sanay na ako sa impulsive moments mo. Gutom ka na ba?
"

I nodded, "Tara, kain na tayo."

Tapos pumunta kami sa isang over looking resto dito. Heavy lunch yung kinain nam
in.

"San na tayo?" I asked him. Busog na busog pa din ako. Parang bibitayin na ako b
ukas sa dami ng kinain ko. Grabeng maka order si Andy.

Hindi siya nagsalita pero hinawakan niya yung kamay ko tapos naglakad lakad kami
, "Hey, may problema ka ba?" I asked him. Nakakapanibago kasi siya eh. Something
's.. wrong?

"Wala noh. Gusto lang kitang makasama ngayon."

"Sigurado ka?"

He nodded.

"Horse back riding tayo?" He asked, "Di ba hindi ka masyadong nakakapunta dito s
abi mo dati?"

I smiled, "Sure!"

Tapos sumakay na kami. Naaalala pa pala ni Andy yung sinabi ko dati. Haaay. May
mga naaalala tuloy ako.

Sa magkahiwalay na kabayo kami sumakay ni Andy. Pero magka holding hands yung is
a naming kamay habang nakasakay kami sa kabayo.

Ang sarap sa feeling. Sana ganito na lang palagi. Tahimik. Ayoko na talaga ng ca
sualties. Kung ang pagpapakasal ni Cyriel kay Ynna ang magiging paraan para mata
himik ang buhay ko at last, then.. Sige na. Let them be together.

After naming mag horse back riding, naglakad lakad kami papunta sa mga pine tree
s tapos umupo kami sa ilalim nun.

"Dana.."

"Hmm?" I answered habang nakasandal sa balikat niya.

"Let's stay like this."

"Of course, Andy." Then i smiled and gave him a peck.

Hindi ko namalayan, nakatulog na pala ako.

----------------Andy's Point of View

"Dana.."

I stared at her face. Alam ko naman na hindi ko na siya makikita ng ganitong kal
apit pag sinabi ko na sa kanya yung totoo..

"Hmm?" She answered habang nakasandal sa balikat ko.

"Let's stay like this."

Like this. Ikaw, ako. Sana mapatawad mo pa ako..

"Of course, Andy." Then she smiled and gave me a peck.

Nakatulog na siya sa balikat ko. Habang natutulog siya, tinititigan ko lang siya
. Sana lang talaga, naramdaman mo kung gano kita kamahal, Dana.

Time: 5:30 p.m.

"Hmmm," nagising na pala siya tapos nag inat inat, "What the hell! Magdidilim na
ah! Anong oras na?!"

"5:30," i answered.

"Sabi mo ibabalik mo ako sa bahay before the sun sets! Kainis ka talaga!!" Tapos
pinaghahampas niya ako. Hay, Andy. Kung hindi ka ba naman kasi gago. Ayan tuloy
, last time na tong hahampasin ako ni Dana ng ganito. Mamimiss ko to.

"Sorry.."

Bigla naman siyang tumigil, "Okay lang, eto naman, masyado kang serious."

"Dana.."

"Hmm?"

"May sasabihin ako sa'yo.."

"What is it?"

Eto na..

"About the truth.."

"Truth about what? Can't relate, Andy."

"Remember nung nagcelebrate tayo ng first day niyo ni Cyriel?" Tapos bigla siyan
g naging seryoso.

"What about that?"

Hindi ako makapagsalita. Damn, Andy! Sabihin mo na! Isipin mo si Cyriel! Ikakasa
l siya sa babaeng yun pag naduwag ka ngayon!

"Fck it, Andy! Truth about what?!"

"I'll tell you what happened. P-please don't interrupt."

She nodded pero nakita kong nanginginig yung kamay niya.

x X x Flashback x X x

"Andy, kanina ka pa umiinom jan ah? Bitter ka ba?" Nandito nga pala ako sa bar n
i Dave. Celebration daw ng first day ni Cy at Dana.

"Hindi ah. May the best man win, Dave. Si Cy eh, magagawa ko?" I said. As much a
s i love Dana, anong magagawa ko? I messed my chance nung pinagpalit ko siya kay
Lynne, kaya dapat irespeto ko na lang kung si Cyriel ang pipiliin niya. Besides
, we fought fair and square.

"Good to hear. Teka, puntahan ko lang si Sara." Tapos umalis na siya. Buti pa si
Dave, may Sara, si Cyriel, may Dana. Sana kasi talaga may isa pang kaibigan si
Dana. Eh di may kalandian din sana ako ngayon. Nyeta lang talaga! Iinom na lang
'to!

Habang iniinom ko yung beer ko, "Heart broken?"

Nung may nagsalita sa gilid ko, lumingon ako, "Ikaw? Ano nga ulit pangalan mo?"
I asked. Siya yung impaktang babaeng muntik ng magparape ka Dana ah!

"Ynna. Ynna Henares." Tapos inoffer niya yung kamay niya pero tinignan ko lang,
"Well anyway, i'm here to talk to you."

"About what?" Teka lang, bakit nandito to? Akala ko strictly for close friends l
ang ang party na 'to?!

"About Dana."

"Miss whoever you are, tigilan mo na si Dana, please. Sila na ni Cyriel, besides
, kahit hindi sila, hindi ka papatulan ng kaibigan ko. So please back off."

Tapos ininom ko na yung beer ko. Kahit kailan talaga papansin 'tong babaeng 'to!

"I'm an HIV carrier."

Nahulog ko yung bote ng beer na hawak ko, "What?!"

Bigla siyang natawa. Nagjjoke ba tong babaeng to?!

"Tigilan mo ako sa mga trip mo, Miss. Wala ako sa mood."

"I'm serious. I had my check up last week."

She's s-serious?!

"A-anong kinalaman ko jan?" I asked her, still in shocked sa mga narinig ko. HIV
yun! Not something funny!

"Dana."

"What about her?" I asked.

"She caused me this fcking virus!"

"Ano?!"

"Because of her, i now have this goddamned virus!"

"Teka lang, miss. Can you please explain why on earth Dana caused you that- that
- that virus?!"

Tapos kinwento niya sa akin na dahil kay Dana, she had an affair with one of her
professors who happened to be a carrier as well. Nung una, sinabi ko sa kanya n
a kasalanan niya yun. Walang kinalaman si Dana. Totoo naman! May pumilt ba sa ka
nya na makipagsex dun sa professor niya? Wala naman di ba?!

But she answered this, "It's her fault! I discovered that she knew that that fck
ing Grei is an HIV carrier but she didn't tell me!"

Hindi ako nakasagot, magagawa ba ni Dana yun?

"You're lying. Mabait si Dana, she won't do such things.."

"She already did, Andy."

Kahit galit na galit siya dito sa babaeng 'to, matitiis ba niya na mahawaan siya
ng sakit na ganun?

"What is your proof na alam nga niya?"

Tapos may tinawagan niya yung isa naming ka schoolmate at sinabi niya na nakausa
p niya si Dana tungkol nga dun.

"Now, Andy, tell me, hindi pa din ba niya kasalanan?"

Hindi. There must be a reason.

"What do you want?"

"Simple lang, i want Cyriel."

"You want what?! Pasensya na, Miss. Hindi ko pinagbebenta ang kaibigan ko. Besid
es, may girlfriend na siya.."

"Then make them break up. Come on, Andy. You're better than this. I know how muc
h you love Dana. I'll have Cyriel and you'll have Dana."

"A-ayoko. I respect Dana's decision. Masaya siya kay Cyriel. I can't ruin her ha
ppiness."

Tumayo siya, "Then i'll do things on my own. Alam mo bang step daughter lang si
Dana ng tatay niya?" Wait, what?! Step daughter lang siya?!

"Alam mo ba kung ano ang nangyari sa biological father ni Dana? AIDS, Andy. Afte
r magkaroon ng affair ng nanay ni Dana sa tatay niya, nagkaroon ng AIDS ang tata
y niya dahil nagkaroon 'to ng one night stand sa isang prostitute. Lately lang n
alaman ni Dana lahat yan, knowing Dana, nasaktan 'to dahil never niyang nakita a
ng tatay niya at nung nakita niya, wala na ito sa matinong condition dahil sa pa
gkalat ng virus sa katawan. Kung nakita mo lang yung reacton niya tuwing dinadal
aw niya yung tatay niya sa rehabilitation center.. Kaya naman nung nalaman niya
yung tungkol sa father niya, naging supporter na siya ng AIDS patients. In fact,
may foundation pa nga silang tinutulungan ng nanay niya."

Tapos ininom niya yung beer sa counter.

"How do you think Dana will react pag nalaman niya na she, herself, caused someo
ne to suffer the same as her father? I have a clue, Andy.. Kakainin siya ng kons
ensya niya."

Fck! Fck! Fck!

"What do you want?!" Napasigaw na ako. Buti na lang wala pang masyadong tao dahi
l hindi pa nagssimula yung party.

"Make them break up."

Tapos sinabi na niya sa akin yung plano niya. Nung nakita kong papunta siya ng C
R ng medyo lasing na, ginawa ko na yung inuutos sa akin ni Ynna. I drugged her.
Then the rest is history. Walang alam si Cyriel sa mga nangyari. He knew about w
hat really happened the morning after that incident..

to be continued..

42nd Chapter

Time: 2 pm

Cyriel's Point of View

"Yung payatot nasa baba."

Nandito ako sa kwarto at gumagawa ng plate ng biglang pumasok si Clarence para s


abihin yun. Aish. Nandito na nga siya kagabi, hanggang ngayon pupuntahan niya pa
din ako?!

Bumaba na ako tapos nakita kong kausap niya si mom. Pasalamat siya hindi alam ni
mom ang sakit niya, kung hindi, baka kahit lapitan ako hindi niya magawa.

"Ano'ng kailangan mo?" I asked her.

"Don't treat her like that, baby."

"Sorry, mom."

"Alright, baby. Oo nga, hija, san ba kayo pupunta ni Cyriel?"

"We were supposed to meet the wedding planner today during lunch but since 2 pm
na, i decided na pumunta na lang sa Manila Cathedral for church reservations."

Tapos lumapit siya sa akin at kumapit sa braso ko. Sanayin mo na ang sarili mo,
Cy. Magiging asawa mo na yung babaeng yan. Magsanay ka na.

"The wedding planner should do that, right?"

Ngumiti naman siya, "Gusto ko po kasing maging hands on sa preparations sa weddi


ng namin. I'll marry only once so i should give my best."

My mom smiled, "I really like you for my son. O siya, you better go. Traffic pa
naman ngayon. If you don't have any appointment tonight, have dinner with us aga
in."

"Sure, auntie."

"From now on, call me mom, hija."

She blushed, pati ba naman pagbblush naccontrol niya?

"Sure, mom."

------------Ynna's Point of View

"October 19 it is. Thanks," i said then i smiled. As i have said, we went here a
t the Manila Cathedral for church reservation. Even though we will have a civil
wedding later, tuloy pa din ang kasal namin sa simbahan. Save the date. October
19.

"Babe, okay lang ba kung may pupuntahan pa tayo?" I asked.

He just shrugged his shoulders, "May magagawa ba ako?"

I smiled. I drove to the Makati Municipal Hall. My mom and my private nurse is a
lready waiting for me.

I clung onto his arms and lead him to the Mayor's office. Nung nasa tapat na kam
i ng Mayor's office, he asked me, "What are we doing here?!"

"Let's go inside first then i'll tell you."

------------Time: 3:30 pm

Sara's Point of View

"Honey Babe, kanina ka pa pabalik balik. Maupo ka muna kaya?"

Kanina pa kasi ako pabalik balik dito. Di ako mapakali. Parang may mangyayaring
masama eh.

"Eh kasi naman, Honey Babe, kinakabahan ako. Hindi ko din maintindihan eh."

Hinila niya ako paupo, "Everything will be alright, Sara. At this point, malaman
g sinasabi na ni Andy yung totoo kay Dana."

"Really?!"

"Yes. Nakausap ko siya kagabi, he'll confess today. Relax ka lang."

Sasabihin talaga ni Andy yun? Kinakabahan ako!!

----------------Cyriel's Point of View

"Now, Ynna. Bakit tayo nandito? At bakit nandito ang mama mo at nurse mo?" I ask
ed her.

Sa totoo lang, parang alam ko na kung bakit kami nandito. Pero gusto kong makasi
gurado.

"We'll get married today.."

Fck. Fck. Fck.

"Hindi mo ba kayang maghintay, Ynna? In less than a month, i'll be yours. Hindi
mo ba kayang ibalato sakin yung 1 buwan na yun?" I pleaded.

Isang buwan na nga lang yung natitira sa akin, babawasan niya pa.

"What is one month, Cyriel? May balak ka bang hindi ituloy ang kasal kaya ayaw m
ong pumayag?" Sabi sa akin ng nanay ni Ynna. Sa totoo lang, nakakatakot ang mama
niya dahil napaka protective nila kay Ynna.

"Hindi naman po sa---"

"Then marry her. Make my daughter happy." She said, no, more like commanded.

----------------Time: 5:30 p.m.

Andy's Point of View

Nandito kami ngayon, walang nagsasalita. Eto na yung kinatatakot mo, Andy. Yung
hindi ka kausapin ni Andy. Gago ka kasi! Tanggapin mo yan!

"Dana.."

Kanina ko pa siya sinusubukang kausapin pero hindi niya ako pinapansin.

"Please naman, kausapin mo ako. Kahit mura murahin mo na ako.. Just please, wag
mo akong hindi pansinin.."

Hindi pa din niya ako pinapansin. Tangina. Alam ko naman na eto yung mangyayari,
yung hindi niya ako kakausapin ni titignan pag nalaman niya pero tangina lang,
hindi ko alam na ganito pala kasakit yun.

"Did Cyriel know what you did?" She asked.

She's calm pero alam ko, galit siya sa akin. Sa ginawa namin.

flashback...

"Good job, Andrei."

Tangina, Andy. Ano bang ginawa mo?! Ano bang pumasok sa kokote mo at nagawa mo y
un kay Dana at Cyriel?! Nasan na yung sinasabi mong may the best man win?! Tangi
na talaga! Tsaka bakit ba nagpasulsol ka sa babaeng 'to. Wala ka bang tiwala kay
Dana?!!

"Hey, why are you dragging me?!"

Ayoko na. Hinila ko tong babaeng to. Hindi ko kayang magalit si Dana at Cyriel s
a akin. Sasabihin ko yung totoo. Ipapaliwanag ko sa kanila yung totoong nangyari
. Kung totoo man yung sinasabi niya tungkol kay Dana, i'm sure she has her reaso
ns. Hindi si Dana yung tipo ng taong magpapahamak sa iba. I know her.

Pumunta ako kay Dave. Wala pa din siyang alam sa mga nangyari, ang alam lang niy
a, nag away kami ni Cyriel. Hindi niya alam na nakita kami ni Cyriel ni Dana na
magkatabi sa kama..

"Dave, si Cyriel?"

Tumingin muna siya sa akin na parang nagtataka kung bakit kasama ko tong babaeng
to.

"Uuwi na daw siya. Teka, ano bang nangyari? Bakit ba kayo nag away?"

"Basta. Saka ko na lang sasabihin sa'yo."

Pumunta kami sa condo ni Cyriel pero wala siya dun kaya dumiretso na lang ako sa
bahay nila. Andy!! Kailan mo ba gagamitin ang utak mo?!

Nakita ko si Clarence kaya sa kanyan ko tinanong kung nasan yung kapatid niya, "
Si Cyriel?"

"Tignan mo sa kwarto."

Umakyat na kami sa kwarto niya. Nung nasa harap na kami ng pinto, tangina, kinak
abahan ako.

Sinubukan kong kumatok pero walang sumasagot kaya pumasok na ako sa loob. Pagpas
ok ko, napakagulo ng kwarto niya. Andy, kabahan ka na. Alam mo kung paano magali
t si Cyriel.

Nakita ko siya sa may gilid, dumudugo yung kamay niya. Sinuntok niya pala yung s
alamin kaya ganun..

"Cyriel.." I said. Tinignan niya ako pero hindi siya nagsalita.

"Magpapaliwanag ako.."

Tinignan niya ako, "Ano? Ipapamukha mo pa sakin kung gaano ka kagaling? Ggo ka t
alaga! Akala ko ba irerespeto natin kung ano man ang desisyon ni Dana? Gaano ba
kahirap intindihin yun, Andy?!"

"H-hindi sa ganun.."

Binato niya yung baso sa gilid niya, "Please lang, tigilan mo na ako. Baka mapat
ay lang kita."

"Cyriel.."

Bigla siyang tumayo tapos lumapit sa akin at sinuntok ako ng sinuntok.

"Gago ka talaga!"

Sinuntok niya lang ako ng sinuntok. Hindi ako lumaban. Alam ko naman na ako ang
may kasalanan. Tanggapin mo yan, Andy. Gago ka eh.

Nung mapagod na siya, binitiwan niya na ako hanggang sa mapaupo ako sa sahig.

Pinunasan ko yung labi ko. Puro dugo.

Tinignan ko yung babaeng kasama ko. Nakatingin lang siya sa amin. Mukhang natako
t siya. Ngayon niya lang yata nakita si Cyriel na galit. Lagi kasing tahimik at
kalmado si Cy. Bihira lang magalit.

"Tapos ka na ba?" Tanong ko sa kanya, "Kung tapos ka na, sana naman pakinggan mo
na yung sasabihin ko.."

Sinubukan kong tumayo kahit ang sakit pa din ng katawan ko. Hirap din akong mags
alita dahil sa suntok niya sa akin..

"Pakinggan mo ako.. Hindi totoong may nangyari sa amin ni Dana.."

Napatingin siya sa akin.

"Wag mo akong lokohin, Andy. Wala akong pakielam kung may nangyari sa inyo. Kahi
t pa may nangyari sa inyo, tatanggapin ko pa din si Dana."

Napatigil ako. Mahal niya talaga si Dana. Ang gago ko lang talaga.

"Makinig ka muna. Walang nangyari.. Pinlano niya lang lahat ng 'to," tapos tinur
o ko yung babaeng kasama ko.

Tinignan siya ni Cy, "Magkasabwat na pala kayo ngayon." Tapos inismidan niya ako
. Tangina. Eto ang ayoko sa kanya, pag galit siya, hindi siya nakikinig sa mga s
inasabi ko.

"Tangina naman, Cyriel! Pwedeng makinig ka muna?!" Sigaw ko sa kanya.

Tinignan niya lang ako.

"Sabihin mo sa kanya lahat ng nangyari.."

Tinignan lang ako nung babae.

"Hoy! Magsalita ka nga!"

Hindi pa din siya nagsasalita.

Nilapitan ko siya tapos hinawakan ko yung magkabila niyang balikat, "Tangina nam
an! Magsalita ka!"

"I'm sorry, Andrei. Pero.. hindi ko talaga kayang magsinungaling. Alam mo sa sar
ili mo na may nangyari talaga sa inyo ni Dana. Please lang, umamin ka na lang..
Wag mo na akong piliting magsinungaling para sa'yo.."

Napaupo na lang ako sa mga sinabi niya. Tangina. Bakit ba ako nagpaloko sa babae
ng 'to?!

"Cyriel, please. Maniwala ka sa'kin. Kaibigan mo ako, kilala mo ako.."

Tinignan ako ni Cyriel, "Kilala nga kita. Alam ko yung kaya mong gawin. Please l
ang, tantanan mo na ako, Andy. Baka hindi ko na mapigilan yung sarili ko."

Lumabas na ako sa kwarto niya.

Andy, ang bobo mo!!

present...

"Dana, sinabi ko sa kanya yung totoo. Sinubukan ko naman.. Please, wag kang maga
lit sa akin.."

Madilim na, pero kahit ganun, nakita kong tumulo yung luha ni Dana. Pinaiyak mo
na naman siya, Andy. Ang galing mo lang talagang magmahal.

"Iuwi mo na ako."

Tapos tinalikuran niya ako at pumasok sa sasakyan ko.

-----------------

Time: 8:00 pm

Dana's Point of View

I went out of Andy's car without looking at him.

Damn, Dana! Ang tanga mo! Bakit ba kasi naniwala ka sa mga babaeng yun?!

flashback...

Nandito pa din ako sa cubicle. Bwisit talaga yung haliparot na yun! Talaga bang
gagawin niya yun para lang bumagsak ako?!

"Like ew? May AIDS si Prof. Grei?"

"Don't know, girl. I just heard it."

Si Prof. Grei yung nagbagsak sa akin! Totoo bang may AIDS siya? Sht! Baka mahawa
si Ynna!

Lumabas ako ng cubicle kahit namamaga na yung mata ko sa kaiiyak para tanungin k
ung totoo nga yung sinasabi nila. Pero nung paglabas ko, wala na sila. Hahabulin
ko sana sila para sabihin yun pero,

Mama
calling...

calling...

"Mama Hello? Ma, bakit po?"

Imbis na si mama ang sumagot, si papa ang narinig ko.

"Walangya kang bata ka! Ano tong grade mo? Singko? At major subject pa ang binag
sak mo? Talaga bang ginagalit mo ako?"

"Pa, magpapaliwanag po--"

"Wag ka ng magsinungaling. Malandi kang bata ka! Wala ka ng ginawa kundi magland
i! Bat hindi na lang ikaw ang namatay!"

Pagkatapos binaba na niya.

Bakit ba hindi niya ako tanungin kung ano talaga yung dahilan? 18 years. Sa 18 t
aon ng buhay ko, siya yung tinuring kong ama. Hindi niya ba ako kilala para hind
i niya malaman na ginawa ko na lahat ng makakaya ko para maging proud siya sakin
?

"Aaah. Nakakaawa ka naman. Sayang naman yung pagka blooming mo kung iiyak ka lan
g. Hahaha."

Si Ynna, siya ang may kagagawan ng lahat ng 'to.

"Once and for all, pagod na ako sa mga ginagawa mo. Ano ba ang laro mo? Blackmai
l- blackmailan?"

"Hindi pa ako napapagod eh."

"Ano ba kasi ang nagawa ko?"

"Bobo ka ba o ano? Di ba sinabi ko na sa'yo? Ibigay mo lang si Cyriel sakin, tit


igilan kita."

Si Cyriel, si Cyriel, kontrolado ko ba ang isip niya?

"Ilang beses ko ba sasabihin sa'yo? Hindi ko nga kontrolado kung ano ang gagawin
at iisipin niya!"

"Ang gusto ko lang naman, iwanan mo siya. Iyon lang. Madali lang naman, di ba?"

"Pag nilayuan ko ba siya, sigurado kang lalayuan niya ako?"

"Hah, ang kapal din ng mukha mo noh? Eto lang ang lilinawin ko, sumuko ka na han
ggang may natitira pa sa'yo, dahil pag ako nainis, lahat yan, mawawala sa'yo!"

"Ynna naman kasi, hindi ko nga kayang sundin yung gusto mo. Ang dami dami namang
lalaki dyan eh..

"Bakit? Madami din namang lalaki dyan ah, bakit si Cyriel pa ang napili mo? Ha?!
Ano?!"

"Alam mo, hindi ko na talaga alam ang gagawin ko sa'yo. Lumaban ka naman ng pata
s, huwag mong idamay ang grades ko!"

"Well then, I pity you. Hindi ako lumalaban ng patas eh. Pipiliin mo kasi ang ka
kalabanin mo. Kahit anong course, kahit anong school, kung hindi ka susunod sa g
usto ko, asahan mong hindi ka makakatapos. I won't be a governor's daughter for
nothing. I could always pull some strings."

Then she left. Balak ko pa naman sanang sabihin sa kanya yung narinig ko. Pero,
Ynna. Hindi ka lumalaban ng patas. At matalino ka naman siguro, alam mo na ang m
ga ginagawa mo.

present...

Ang tanga tanga mo, Dana! Kung sinabi mo sa kanya, eh di sana hindi nagka letse
letse yang buhay mo! Pero malay ko ba na hindi sila gumamit ng protection? Ang t
anga din niya! Bwisit!

Pagkaalis na pagkaalis ni Andy, kinuha ko yung sasakyan ko at pumunta sa bahay n


ila Cyriel. Tinignan ko yung bahay nila, ilang taon din nung huli akong nakapunt
a dito..

43rd Chapter

Time: 7 pm

Ynna's Point of View

I hugged him,

My husband.

"Shall we come in?" I asked him with a big smile plastered on my face.

It feels so good calling Cyriel my husband. Kahit na alam kong napilitan lang si
ya kanina, i don't care. All i care is that now, he's mine 'til i die.

flashback...

"Then marry her. Make my daughter happy." My mom told Cyriel.

I know for a fact na takot si Cyriel sa parents ko. Why? Because he knows what t
hey can do. I remember nung isang time na gustong umuwi ni Cy sa Pilipinas, my m
om went to the States and threatened him na guguluhin niya ang buhay nung babae
niya pag ginawa niya 'yun. My mom didn't know and still do not know na si Dana y
ung babaeng dahilan kung bakit hindi ako mahal- mahalin ni Cy. Cyriel would neve
r tell her that, and he would never allow me to.

Hindi na sumagot si Cy, instead, pumunta siya sa tabi ko.

"Let's start now?" My mom asked the Mayor, who happens to be a close friend of m
y father. Kaya naman hindi ako natatakot; my mom's here, the mayor is on my side
. I've got all that i need.

The process started. Cyriel would just nod. Ynna, just calm down. Don't you cry
now. The end justifies the means. Kahit napipilitan lang siya, in the end, he'll
still be my husband.

"We are gathered together here in the presence of these witnesses to join this m
an and this woman in matrimony, which is an honorable estate, and is not to be e
ntered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently and discreetly. If
anyone can show just cause why this man and this woman may not lawfully

be joined together, let them speak now or hereafter remain silent."

We all remained silent. No one would dare speak. Not even Cyriel..

"Ynna Henares, will you take this man to be your wedded husband,
to live together in the estate of matrimony? Will you love, honor and keep
her; in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, keep yourself only
unto her, as long as you both shall live?"

I smiled despite the fact that i was already about to cry, "Of course, your Hono
r."

Then the Mayor proceeded and this time, asked Cyriel, "Cyriel Perez, will you ta
ke this woman to be your wedded wife, to live together in the estate of matrimon
y? Will you love, honor and keep her; in sickness and in health, and forsaking a
ll others, keep yourself only unto her, as long as you both shall live?"

Cyriel just stared at the floor.

A minute had passed, still, his eyes are glued on the floor.

The moment my mom realized what Cyriel is doing, he went near him and whispered
something.

I don't know what she said to Cyriel.. I just saw Cyriel saying I do to the Mayo
r after that.

"Now, by the authority vested in me by the Republic of the Philippines, I pronou


nce you to be husband and wife and extend to you my best wishes for a successful
and happy married life together."

present...

"Shall we come in?"

We're now here inside their house. His mom told me to dine with them again. Cyri
el told me awhile ago not to tell anyone about our marriage. I just nodded but d
eep inside, i was hurt. He's ashamed of me. Who wouldn't?

---------------------Time: 8:30 pm

Dana's Point of View

Dana naman! Thirty minutes ka nang nakatayo dito! What to do?! Bakit ba naman ka
si wala kang number ni Cyriel?! Magkagalit pa kayo ni Sara, which means pati si
Dave, hindi ko din pinapansin!

Aish! Mukha na akong tanga dito, kinakausap mag isa ang sarili.

Who to ask?

Who to ask?

Who to ask?

Kim! I'll ask Kim.

calling..
Kim Miranda

("What's up?")

"Uhm.. Can i ask for a favor?"

("Sure. Wag lang acad related.")

"Hindi naman eh. Uhm.. May number ka ba ni ano.. Ni Cyriel?"

("WHAT?! Why in the world are you asking for his number, DK?!!")

"Long story, Kim. I need his number badly.. Meron ka ba?"

("Wala eh, but i have his brother's number.")

"Can you send it to me?"

("Sure. Basta kwento mo sakin next time ha?")

"I will. Thanks, Kim."

After a minute of quiet deliberation, i dialled Clarence's Number.

Ilang rings na din pero hindi sumasagot. I was about to end the call when someon
e spoke, "Who are you?"

It gave me chills. Kaboses niya si Cyriel.

"I-i'm Dana, Cyriel's friend."

"Cyriel's friend?"

Ex-girlfriend, to be exact.

"Uhm, yes. I was---"

I wasn't able to finish because i felt someone's watching me so i turned around.

It turned out that Clarence was just behind me, his back resting on his black me
rcedes.

"So, you're the great Dana," he said then he looked at me from head to toe, "Not
bad."

I raised my brow, "Excuse me?"

"Why are you looking for my brother?"

"I need to ask him about.. About something."

He just shrugged his shoulders, "Do you think that could wait?"

"Why?"

"His fiance is still inside the house."

Napayuko na lang ako. Nyeta naman talaga! Si Ynna na naman! Siya na naman! Palag
i na lang siya! Naiiyak na ako. Bwisit naman eh!

"On the second thought, let's come in?" He asked me.

I just nodded while he wiped my tears, "Wag ka ngang umiyak. Ayaw ni Cyriel ng i
yaking babae."

I now know why Kim is crazy about this guy.

-----------------Cyriel's Point of View

"So, how's the wedding preparations?"

Nag uusap lang sila tungkol sa kasal. Hindi nila alam, kasal na kami. Buhay nama
n oh! Bakit ba kasi nagkaganito?!

For the past hour, puro kasal kasal kasal. Hindi ba nila napapansin na hindi ako
masaya? Sabagay, ni hindi nga nila kami nakitang lumaki ni Clarence eh, malaman
g, hindi din nila alam kung kailan kami masaya o malungkot. Tss.

Pinaglaruan ko na lang yung pagkain ko ng...

"Clarence, why--- And who's that lady beside you?"

"Ah. Mom, this is Dana, my friend."

My mom smiled at them, "Join us, Dana?"

I stared at her. Stared. Alam ko naman na hanggang doon na lang ako ngayon eh. S
uit yourself, Cyriel.

They joined us. Magkatabi si Clarence at si Dana.

Cyriel!! Tanga ka talaga!!

flashback...

"Paano pag ikaw naman ang pinakilala ko sa parents ko? Hindi ka ba kakabahan?"

"Weh? Ipapakilala mo ko? Hindi nga? Kailan?"

"Punta tayo ng U.S.?"

"Nasa States ba sila?"

"Obviously, yes."

"Tss. Akala ko naman."

"Don't worry, pag dumating sila, ikaw ang una kong sasabihan."

"Talaga?"

"Oo naman."

present...

Aish! Sabi ko, ipapakilala ko siya sa parents ko.. bilang girlfriend ko! Nyeta n
aman. Ano nangyari? Pinakilala siya ni Clarence bilang kaibigan niya. Nyeta tala
ga!! Alam naman ni mom na ang kaibigan kay Clarence, iba ang meaning. Friends wi
th benefits. Nyeta, Cyriel!!

"So, hija, saan kayo nagkakilala ni Clarence?"

My mom smiled at her. I think she likes Dana. What's not to like about her?

In my mind, mas maganda sana kung ganito, 'So, hija, saan kayo nagkakilala ni Cy
riel?' That would be better. But dream on, Cyriel. Wala na!

"Stop interrogating her, mom," then he looked at Dana, "Go upstairs, 5th room to
the left. Wait for me there."

Tinignan lang siya ni Dana.

"Go now. Ako na ang bahala kay mom."

"I'll go now, auntie. Excuse me po." Then she went upstairs.

Fuck! Ano'ng gagawin niya sa kwarto ni Clarence?!! Di ba may girlfriend pa siya?


!

---------------------Ynna's Point of View

"Who's she, Clarence?" Mom asked Clarence again. I can call her mom now. She's n
ow my mom, technically.

"She's a friend, mom. Ang kulit niyo naman eh."

"A friend? And why is she inside your room then?"

"We'll discuss about something."

"Something?"

"Something important."

Mom just nodded, "What's her full name, by the way?"

"Dana whatever, mom. Stop asking questions. I'll go now."

Then he went upstairs also.

I looked to my left only to see Cyriel's hands trembling. He's affected. Sino ng
a ba naman ang hindi? Ang pinakamamahal mong babae, nasa loob ng kwarto kasama a
ng kapatid mong playboy.

Mom suddenly spoke, "Hmm. Clarence's taste is really good. Ariza would still be
the best for him but too sad they're not together. Kim's good but i like Dana be
tter for him."

Biglang tumalsik yung steak sa plato ni Cyriel.

"S-sorry," he mumbled, "Mom, i think Ynna better go. Pagod na ako. We need to re
st."

Then he escorted me to the door. He didn't even say a single word. Hinatid lang
niya ako at tinalikuran. What a great way to start our married life.

--------------------

Cyriel's Point of View

Pumunta na ako sa kwarto.

"Aaaaah!"

Peste. Naibato ko kung ano man yung bagay na makita ko.

Clarence, malaman ko lang talaga na may ginawa ka kay Dana, kakalimutan ko na ka


patid kita!

"Aray!"

Napatingin ako sa sumigaw. Si Clarence pala.

"Ginagawa mo dito?!"

"Chill, bro. Naliligo pa si Dana eh."

Napatayo ako tapos hinatak ko yung kwelyo niya, "Gago ka ba?!"

Bigla naman siyang tumawa, "Hahaha! Shit, Cyriel! Ganyan palang magselos ang lit
tle brother ko!"

Binitiwan ko na siya, "Ano bang kailangan mo?!"

"Relax lang. Hindi ko gagawin yung only love mo."

Tinignan ko lang siya. Paano niya nalaman yun? Hindi ko naman kinukwento si Dana
sa kanya.

"Punta ka sa kwarto ko. Mag usap nga kayo. Tss."

Nauna siya tapos sumunod na lang ako.

--------------------

Dana's Point of View

5th room to the left. Found it. Pumasok na ako sa loob at umupo sa couch.

Ang sakit sakit sakit. Akala ko dati, ako ang ipapakilala niya sa parents niya.
He promised me. Pero ano ang nakita ko? Si Ynna. Si Ynna na lang palagi.

"Hey," Clarence threw tissue on my face, "Wipe your face. Wag ka ngang umiyak."

He's really sweet in his own ways. Swerte mo, Kim.

"Thanks."

"Geez, Dana. You're way better than Payatot. Wag ka na ngang umiyak."

Natawa naman ako. Payatot, Skinny Bitch. I think we'll get along really well.

"I know. Thanks, Clarence," then i smiled.

"No prob. Hintayin mo ako, may kukunin lang ako," then he went outside.

I just sat on the couch. Tinignan ko lang yung kwarto niya, too clean for a guy.
May pile of books, coffee table, black and gray ang color ng---

"You two better talk. Wag na wag kayong lalabas ng hindi nag uusap. Nakuha mo ba
, Cyriel?"

Cyriel just nodded.

"Good."

Then Clarence closed the door.

Silence. Walang nagsasalita sa amin. Walang gustong maunang magsalita. Ang dami
dami kong gustong sabihin pero walang lumalabas sa bibig ko...

"Dana.."

Napatingin ako sa kanya. Kay Cyriel..

"I'm sorry.." He said.

Eto na naman, naluluha na naman ako. Letseng sorry yan oh!

"Cyriel.. Hindi mo na ba ako mahal?"

"I love you, Dana. Ask me again tomorrow, i still do."

"Then why don't you trust me?"

Bakit hindi ka naniwala sa akin? Bakit bigla ka na lang umalis kasama siya? Baki
t hindi mo alam na hindi kita kayang lokohin? Bakit, Cyriel?

"I trust you.."

"Tangina naman, Cy. Please, once and for all, sabihin mo sa akin. Why did you go
? Bakit mo ako iniwan? Bakit ni hindi mo man lang ako tinanong? Bakit naniwala k
a agad sa nakita mo? Hindi ka ba naniwala na mahal kita? Na ikaw lang? Na hindin
g hindi kita kayang ipagpalit sa iba? Cyriel naman! Please lang oh, sabihin mo n
aman. Pagod na pagod na akong magmukhang tanga! Lagi na lang akong walang alam s
a mga nangyayari.."

"Dana.."

"Stop calling my name! Start telling me what really happened, Cy. Parang awa mo
na.."

He took a deep breath, "Dana.. I never really went to the States with her. I wen
t there alone. Sumunod lang siya sa akin.."

I silently listened to what he has to say..

"I went there to clear my mind. Magulo pa yung isip ko. Kaibigan ko si Andy. Gal
it ako sa kanya pero ayokong mag away kami kaya umalis muna ako. I wanted to bel
ieve him nung sinabi niya na walang nangyari pero hindi ko alam. Ang gulo gulo l
ang talaga ng utak ko nung panahon na yun."

I didn't speak. I just listened..

"After two weeks, i was planning to go home but something happened. Nung papunta
na ako ng LAX, biglang may humarang sa sasakyan ko tapos dinala nila ako sa isa
ng lugar. Hindi naman nila ako sinaktan pero nagulat ako kung bakit nila ako din
ala dun."

Nakita kong nanginig yung kamay niya..

"May pinakita sila sa akin na video.. Video footage mo.. N-na may nakatutok na b
aril sa likod mo.."

Nagulat ako sa narinig ko. M-may tumutok ng baril sa akin?

"Alam mo na siguro kung sino ang may gawa nun."

Si Ynna. Siya lang naman ang may kayang gumawa nun sa akin eh.

"She's obssessed, Dana. Pumayag ako sa magstay sa States for a month para matigi
l na siya sa ginagawa niya. But not until i learned about her---"

"Illness," i cut him off, "Yes, Cyriel. Alam kong may sakit si Ynna. I'm sorry a
bout what happened to her pero.. Hindi naman yata sapat na dahilan yun para gawi
n niya sa'kin 'to.. Hindi naman yata sapat yun para kunin ka niya sa akin.."

He smiled, "Mahal kita, Dana. Hindi niya ako makukuha sa'yo kahit kailan," he lo
oked at me, "She's sick. HIV. Alam mo ba kung paano niya nakuha yun?"

"She bargained sex for my grades," I answered him. Hindi ko naman kasi talaga ka
salanan na hindi siya nag iingat!

"No, Dana. She was raped."

Andy's Point of View

Nandito ako ngayon sa bahay ni Dave. Ilang oras pa lang na galit sa akin si Dana
, nagkakaganito na ako. Paano pa kaya pag hindi niya ako pinatawad?

Nakita ako ni Dave na papasok sa bahay nila kaya sinalubong niya ako, "Kamusta?"

Nginitian ko lang siya, "Inom tayo?"

Mukhang naintindihan naman niya. Sabay na halos kami lumaki kaya malamang alam n
iya na yung dahilan kung bakit ako nagkakaganito, "Sige ba. Sa garden tayo."

Lumabas kami sa garden tapos nagpadala siya ng beer sa katulong nila.

"Galit ba?"

"Hindi nagsasalita. Mas natatakot ako," seryoso kong sabi sa kanya. Totoo naman,
mas gusto ko pa kung sinipa o sinuntok niya ako. Pero hindi niya ako kinakausap
! Mas natatakot ako.

Tumango tango lang siya, "Dave, ano'ng gagawin ko? Natatakot ako."

"Hindi ko alam."

Hindi kami nag usap, uminom lang kami, "Salamat nga pala," sabi ni Dave.

Tinignan ko lang siya, "Para san?"

"Kay Cyriel. Salamat kasi kahit alam mong magagalit si Dana sa'yo, ginawa mo pa
din," sabi niya tapos nginitian ako.

Binato ko siya nung can ng beer, "Ang bakla mo, Dave." Tapos tumawa ako. Sige la
ng, itawa mo lang yan, Andy.

Tapos inismidan niya ako, "Buti naman tumawa ka na. Nga pala, nasan si Dana?"

Natahimik naman ako, "Hinatid ko siya sa bahay nila kanina."

"Sa tingin mo ba kakausapin niya si Cyriel?"

"Malamang."

"Eh ano nang balak mo?"

"Wala. Ayoko nang magplano baka masaktan lang ako. Bahala na."

"Eh paano pag binalikan niya si Cy?"

"Ewan. Wag mo na nga akong tanungin. Leche lang," tapos uminom na ako ng beer.

"Suggestion lang, Andy. Kay Nof ka na lang," sabi ni Dave sabay buga ko ng iniin
om ko.

"Tang," nabulunan ako, "Nyeta naman, Dave. Gago ka ba?!"

Biglang tumawa, "Hahaha! Grabe ka namang magreact, Andy. Kaya nga suggestion eh.

"

"Nyetang suggestion yan."

"Bakit? Maganda naman si Nof ah!"

"Bakit? May sinabi ba akong pangit?"

"Eh bakit sobra ka namang magreact?"

Aish. Bakit ba ang kulet kulet ni Dave ngayon? Ako pa tuloy ang napag tripan.

"Kadiri kasi. Please lang, Dave. Wag mo nga akong ireto sa bestfriend mo. Tss."

"Better be prepared. Feeling ko, iiwan ka na ni," binato ko ulit siya, "Aray nam
an. As i was saying, pag nagkausap sila ni Cyriel, iiwan ka na ni Dana. Being a
good friend that i am, naghahanda lang ako ng safety precautions. Afterall, ikaw
pa din si Andrei Louie Guzman."

Napangiti naman ako sa sinabi ni Dave. Oo nga pala, nakalimutan ko na, ako nga p
ala si Andrei Louie Guzman.

"Buti naman at ngumiti ka na, kailangan pala binobola ka pa."

"Lul."

"Thanks," sabi niya, "So ano? Iddedate mo na si Nof?"

Binatukan ko siya, "Ang kulit mo."

"Eh bakit ba? Pareho naman kayong single," sabi ni Dave.

"Lul! Hindi ako single! Girlfriend ko pa din si Dana!"

"Fine. Eh di soon to be single."

"Lul. Umayos ka nga. Si Sara pa ligawan ko eh."

"Asa ka pa kay Honey Babes."

Tapos nagtawanan na kami. Buti na lang may kaibigan pa ako. Akala ko malulungkot
lang ako buong gabi eh.

--------------------------

Dana's Point of View

"No, Dana. She was raped."

Fck.

Hindi ako makapag salita.

Rape?

"A-ano?"

Hindi siya nagsalita.

Tama ba yung narinig ko? Si Ynna? Na rape?!

"Ha. Haha. Hahaha!" I forced a laugh, "Nagpapatawa ka ba, Cyriel? Of all people,
kay Ynna ka pa naniwala?"

"Dana.."

"What?!" I exclaimed, "So, yun na ang reason mo? Ang babaw mo, Cyriel!"

He looked at me, "Hindi yun mababaw, Dana. Buhay mo yung pinag uusapan. Sa tingi
n mo ba kaya kong isugal yung buhay mo?" He said.

"Bakit? Sa tingin mo ba hindi mo ako pinatay nung iniwan mo ako? It killed me, C
yriel. Only worst."

"I love you, Dana. Please believe me when i say i do."

"I love you, i love you, i love you! Bakit hindi ko maramdaman yang sinasabi mon
g i love---"

Hindi ko na natapos yung sasabihin ko because he kissed me.

I was shocked.

You shouldn't do this, Dana! Don't kiss him back!!

I can't control myself. My mind is telling me to stop, but my body didn't follow
what my mind says. I just found myself kissing him back with the same intensity
he was giving.

His hands trailed across my waist while my arms snaked its way around his neck.
Absentmindedly, i tilted my head so that he could have more access. He kissed me
tenderly and nibbled my lower lip.

"Cyriel.." I whispered as soon as he parted his lips from mine.

He looked down at me and said, "I love you," then again, he sealed my mouth with
his.

While kissing me, his hand started caressing my back while the other one held my
nape so he could deepen the kiss. I, on the other hand, let my hand roamed arou
nd his chest. His lips went down to my neck, sucking, kissing, and nibbling all
the way down.

'Oh God,' i said to myself.

He then stopped and started trailing my jawline using his lips. I leaned my head
back to help him get all the way across. After marking my neck as his territory
, he went back to my lips and kissed me fully.

My hands made its way to the hem of his shirt and i started pulling it up. 'You'
re all fucked up, Dana.' But before i completely pulled his shirt up, i felt som
ething twitched between my legs.

'Oh fudge.'

I stared at him, he stared at me.

"Do you love me?" I asked him.

"I love you," after saying that, i pushed him to his bed and kissed him.

'There'll be no turning back now.'

I am now on his top and kissing him passionately. I pulled his shirt, signalling
for him to remove it. But instead of removing it, he stopped kissing me and sto
od up.

-----------------------

Cyriel's Point of View

"Do you love me?" She asked me

"I love you," i answered her obvious question.

She then kissed me.

Tumigil ka nga! May asawa ka na, maawa ka naman kay Dana. She doesn't deserve yo
u. Ni hindi mo nga siya maipagtanggol eh.

Hinihila niya yung damit ko pero tinigil ko yung paghalik ko sa kanya.

Nakatingin lang sa akin si Dana, "This is wrong, Dana."

Tumayo siya sa kama tapos sinampal ako, "Nyeta naman, Cyriel! This is wrong?! An
o na naman yang drama mo?!"

"I-i--"

Fck. 'I am married.' Hindi ko kayang sabihin!

"I what?! Ano? Maglalaro na naman tayo ng hula hulaan?!"

"I am married."

There. I said it.

She slapped me again then walked away.

----------------------

Dana's Point of View

I am married.

I ran from him and went outside his house.

He's married?!

Married to--- Oh fck! I can't imagine!

Muntik ko ng ibigay ang sarili ko sa lalaking may asawa ng iba.

calling..
Kim Miranda

Oh God! Kung kailan kailangan ko ng kausap, tsaka pa sila cannot be reached ni N


of!

Naglalakad ako papunta sa sasakyan ko ng may mabunggo ako, "So-- sht. "

Sara's Point of View

"Chill ka lang, Honey Babes. Masyado kang kabado eh," sabi ni Dave habang yakap
yakap ako. Paano ba naman kasi! Kanina pa ako kinakabahan!! Di ba nga ngayon bal
ak sabihin ni Andy kay Dana yung totoo? Kanina pa dapat yun pero anong oras na??
10 pm na!

"Sorry naman. Kinakabahan ako kay Dana."

"Don't be. Kahit ganun yun, matapang yun. Kaya chill ka lang," tapos may nag doo
rbell, "Oh, buksan ko lang yung pinto ha? Baka yung delivery na yun."

Tapos tumayo si Dave mula sa counch katabi ko. Nandito kami ngayon sa apartment
ko kasi kanina pa ako natetensyon mula nung nagdate kami kaya nagdecide si Dave
na samahan muna ako.

"Sara!" Sigaw ni Dave mula doon sa pinto kaya napatayo at napatakbo ako, "Bakit
ka ba--- Dana?!!"

Bigla akong napayakap kay Dana kasi umiiyak siya. Kahit pa hindi niya ako pinans
in for almost a week, best friend ko pa din 'to. Nothing changed.

"Pasok muna tayo sa loob," tapos naglakad kami habang yakap yakap ko pa din siya
. Nung nakaupo na kami sa couch, "Dave, kuha mo naman siya ng tubig?" Tapos umal
is na si Dave para kumuha ng tubig.

Tinignan ko lang si Dana. Pulang pula na yung mata niya. Kanina pa siguro siya u
miiyak..

Bumalik na si Dave ng may dalang tubig, "Dana oh.." Tapos binigay ko kay Dana yu
ng tubig. Tinignan ko lang si Dave na parang pinapaalis ko na siya.

"Ah, eh, Dana, aalis na ako ha? May gagawin pa nga pala ako," tapos nagbye na di
n siya sa akin at lumabas ng pinto.

"Wala na si Dave. Mind to explain what happened?" Tanong ko sa kanya.

Kinuha niya ulit yung baso at uminom, "Alright. First of all, sorry for being a
bitch. I love you, Sara. You know i really do. Kaya nasaktan lang ako nung nalam
an kong nagiging close ka kay Ynna.. Of all people, why her?"

Huminga ako ng malalim, "She's changed, Dana. Mabait--"

"Fuck, Sara. She never changed. She's still the same Ynna you knew."

"Alam ko namang galit ka sa kanya pero sana bigyan mo siya ng chance para ipakit
a na nagbago na siya."

"I gave her the chance but she messed it up. She messed with us. Hindi mo ba nak
ikita? She's scheming! She framed me up. I slapped her because she provoked me p
ero ano yung pinakita niya? That she was trying to befriend me? Bullshit, Sara!"

"Alright. I believe you, Dana. Ikaw ang best friend ko. I'm sorry."

Then we stared at each other for a minute then smiled.

"We're quits?" tanong ko sa kanya.

"Yeah. We're even."

Ganito lang talaga pag mag best friend. Kahit ano pa yung pag awayan namin, at t
he end of the day, best friend pa din kami. Nothing will change that fact.

"Now, mind telling me what happened? Umiyak ka eh," i asked her. Though alam ko
naman na probably dahil 'to sa nalaman niya about dun sa nangyari, mas gusto ko
pa din na sa kanya.

"Ah, about that," tumigil siya tapos tumngin siya sa sahig at tinanong ako, "I k
now you know something, Sara. Ano yung alam mo?"

Nag isip ako. Sasabihin ko ba?

"Okay. Pero don't judge me. I did this for you," then she nodded.

"Sabi ni Cyriel, Ynna is sick with HIV then i confirmed it with Ynna and she sai
d that she's sick because of you. Hindi ko alam. That was too much for me to han
dle."

Dana nodded, "That was another version."

Tumngin ako sa kanya with a puzzled face, "What do you mean by that?"

"I just heard another version of her story. Hindi ko alam kung eto na ba yung to
too. I need to confirm it."

"Ano yung version na alam mo?" I asked her. Now, nalilito na talaga ako. Parang

roller coaster lang ang buhay ni Dana. Ang daming ups and downs, twists and turn
s. Nakakapagod na.

"She was raped," she said without a fuss.

"What she was raped?!!" Sigaw ko.

"I don't know. Hindi ko alam kung maniniwala ako."

"But in any case, sino naman daw?"

"Si Grei."

"Grei?"

Sino si Grei? Hmm. Familiar yung pangalan niya. San ko ba narinig-- "Fuck! Yung
professor natin?!"

"Yeah. That maniac."

"Pero paano, bakit? Ano?!"

Ngumiti lang si Dana, "I don't know either. This night's too much. Si Andy, si C
yriel, si Ynna. They all had their stories to share. Nakakalito. I don't know wh
at to believe anymore."

I hugged her. Naaawa ako kay Dana.

"Everything will be fine, Dana. Trust me."

"I know. Ang layo na ng narating ko, ngayon pa ba ako susuko?"

Then i smiled, "Yan ang bestfriend ko."

"Sige, uuwi na ako," sabi niya tapos tumayo siya.

"Sleep over ka na lang dito?"

"Nope. It's been a long night. Gusto ko na lang umuwi," tapos ngumiti siya.

"Alright. Text mo ko pag nakauwi ka na?"

"I will," tapos lumabas na siya sa pinto.

----------------------Dana's Point of View

"Alright. Text mo ko pag nakauwi ka na?"

"I will," tapos lumabas na ako sa pinto.

Sumakay na ako ng sasakyan ko. I stopped at the nearby store para bumili ng beer
. Pagkatapos, dumiretso na ako sa kwarto ko. Buti na lang tulog na ang parents k
o. Napapagod na akong sumagot sa tanong. All i want to do for now is to rest.. a
nd think. Gusto kong mag isip.

Naupo ako sa balcony ako nagbukas ng beer habang naaalala ko yung nangyari kanin
a..

flashback...

"So-- Tangina!"

Of all people na makakabangga ko, bakit si Ynna pa?!

"Sharp mouth, Dana."

"Fuck off, Ynna. I can curse all i want."

"Then go on. Hindi kita pipigilan," she said then she started walking pero hinaw
akan ko yung braso niya.

"Wag mo akong tatalikuran pag nagsasalita ako."

She faced me and smirked, "Ano bang problema mo, Dana?"

"Ikaw. Ikaw ang problema ko."

"The hell i care. Problemahin mo ako as long as you want."

"Nyeta naman, Ynna! Hanggang ngayon ba maglalaro pa din tayo?" I asked her.

"I don't know what you're talking about."

"You've been scheming, Ynna! Lahat kami niloko mo. You owe us the truth!" I scre
amed. I don't care kung marinig ako ng parents ni Cyriel. What would change kung
maririnig nila? Maaalis ba yung katotohanan na kasal na si Cyriel sa babaeng to
? Hindi naman!

"I don't owe you anything."

"You owe me that. At least the truth."

"And what would i get kung sabihin ko? Wala naman so why would i bother?"

Hinga lang, Dana. You've been angry for long enough. Wag na ngayon.

"Yun nga eh. Wala ka ng makukuha sa akin. Nasa'yo na si Cyriel. Kasal na. Hindi
ka pa ba titigil?" I asked. Desperation is obvious.

She smiled, "So you know. Buti naman at sinabi na ni Cyriel."

I looked at her while she was smiling, "Yes, he said. Masaya ka na?"

"Very happy."

"Now, tell me the truth. Ynna, just that one. Ibalato mo na sa'kin..."

She looked at me, "Bakit ba gustung gusto mong malaman? What difference will it
make? Walang mababago kahit malaman mo yun, Dana! It's all in the past."

I smiled at her, "Yeah. It's all in the past. The past that still haunts me. Par
a matahimik na ako, please lang.. Tell me what really happened.."

She stared at me, "I was raped," then she laughed.

I didn't answer. Eto na. Sana malaman ko na yung totoo.

"Siguro masaya ka? Oo nga naman kasi. Karma ko siguro to kasi ang sama sama ko s
a'yo."

"Bakit hindi mo nireport?" I asked her.

Tumawa siya, "Nagpapatawa ka ba? Gusto mo bang masira ang daddy ko? He was plann
ing to run for governor again. Masisira siya pag nalaman ng mga tao na her daugh
ter bargained grades for sex then she was raped because she backed off the last
minute," then she laughed again.

Nakatulala lang ako. Naawa ako.

"Turned out that that bastard has AIDS! And now? I share the same fate as his. M
asaya ka na?"

"O- oo. Masaya ako. We're even," i said. I didn't mean it. Hindi ako masaya... I
feel guilty. I just said those words dahil alam kong yun ang gusto niyang marin
ig. Ayaw niyang kaawaan siya.

"We're still not even. Hangga't hindi ako minamahal ni Cy, we will never be even
, Dana."

I smirked at her, "Huh. You were raped and all, yet hindi ka pa din nagbabago. W
ala ka man lang bang remorse na nararamdaman sa katawan mo?"

"Nothing. I feel nothing but hatred towards you," then we stared at each other.

"The feeling is mutual. I hate you to death." I said.

"Hate me all you want but that won't change the fact that I'm Mrs. Cyriel Perez.
Suck it up, Dana."

"I know. Pero ako ang mahal niya, suck it up, Ynna. And i will make sure na mama
matay kang asawa lang sa papel," then i left her.

45th Chapter

Tuesday. Last day of Class.

"DK! Where do you think you are going, huh?" Kim asked me as i get my things.

"Gotta go somewhere," i answered.

"Pero we already have our schedule! Bar hopping, remember?!"

Shoot! I forgot. Magbbar hopping nga pala kami ngayon. Celebration! Last day of
class, baby. Tomorrow, semestral break begins!

Just so you know, it's been three days simula nung nag usap kami ni Ynna. I real
ly wanna stranggle her that day! Pasalamat siya at sunud sunod ang exams ko the
following days!

"Sorry, Kim. Will make it up to you next time. I just need to go somewhere," the
n i went near them and hugged them.

"Matagal ba yang gagawin mo? Sunod ka na lang kaya?" Tanong ni Sara.

"Don't know. Maybe. I'll just text you later, alright?"

Then i went to my car.

Wanna know where i'm heading to? To a hospital. I'm going to this hospital to cl
arify things once and for all!

Pagpunta ko sa hospital somewhere in Quezon City, i immediately went to the nurs


e station and asked for his room assignment.

"Grei Benitez?" Then she scanned their records, "Room 0739."

"Thanks," then i went to the elevator.

Pagpasok ko sa elevator, kinakabahan ako. Naghalo halo na yung nararamdaman ko.


Kinakabahan dahil sa kung ano ang pwede kong malaman, nagagalit dahil isa siya s
a dahilan kung bakit nagulo yung buhay ko.. at masaya, kasi sa wakas, masasagot
na din yung mga tanong ko..

Kung nagtataka kayo kung paano ko siya nahanap, i hired a private investigator k
asi sinubukan ko ng magtanong sa administration office ng school pero hindi sila
nagbibigay ng private information ng mga nagtatrabaho dun kahit resigned na. Ye
s, matagal ng wala siya sa school namin. Totoo pala yung kumalat na balita na ma
y AIDS siya dati. Ang tanga lang talaga ni Ynna!

Naglakad lakad ako sa hall way ng hospital hanggang makarating ako sa harap ng p
into, "Room 0739," the sign says.

Nakatayo lang ako sa harap ng pinto, gathering all my courage para buksan yun..

"Kamag anak po kayo ng pasyente?" A nurse came and asked me.

"No, i'm not," i answered.

"Ah. Sayang naman po, akala ko sa wakas, may dadalaw na sa kanya. Simula kasi nu
ng na admit siya dito 1 year ago, wala pang bumibisita sa kanya," sabi nung nurs
e habang nakangiti, "pero kahit hindi kayo magkamag anak, mabuti na ding may dum
alaw sa kanya. Kawawa naman siya eh. Sige, pasok ka na," tapos binuksan niya yun
g pinto.

Biglang napatingin sa akin si Grei. Ayoko siyang tawaging Professor kasi wala na
talaga akong natitirang respeto para sa kanya.

Tinignan ko siya, puro pasa yung braso niya at ang payat niyang tignan. Ang putl
a ng kulay niya. Parang yung tatay ko lang...

Pumasok ako sa kwarto at sinara yung pinto. Nakatingin pa din siya sa akin. Sigu
ro inaaalala niya yung saan niya ako nakita dati.

"Dana Kathryn Ferrer," i said to him, "Former student. Yung ibinagsak mo for sex
?" I sarcastically said to him.

Natahimik siya. Alam kong naaalala na niya yung mga ginawa niya.

Umupo ako sa couch sa gilid ng hospital bed. Tinignan ko yung buong kwarto. Hala
tang walang bumibisita. Ni walang pagkain o bulaklak man lang. Wala ba talagang
pamilya to?

"Kamusta?" I asked him.

He gave me a weak smile, "Karma, can't you see?"

I smiled at him, "Oo nga naman. Karma strikes twice worse."

"Alam ko, and i am sorry for that. Alam ko namang malapit na akong mamatay kaya
naman sana patawarin mo ako, Dana. Nung mga panahon na yun, bago ko pa lang nala
man na infected pala ako. Hindi ako makapaniwala," tapos tumawa siya, "sa bagay,
sino ba naman ang taong gugustuhing magka AIDS? Nung mga panahon na yun, galit
ako. Galit ako sa mundo. Bakit ako pa? Ulila na ako, walang asawa, tapos ako pa
yung makakakuha nun? Ang malas ko naman ata!"

Tahimik lang ako. Alam ko yung nararamdaman niya. Yung biological father ko? Gan
ito din siya. Alam kong masakit yung pinagdadaanan niya. Maliban dun sa physical
pain? Nandun din yung emotional pain. Yung prejudice ng mga tao once na malaman
nila na may AIDS ka? Mas masakit yun..

"Tapos, lumapit sa akin si Ynna. Ibagsak daw kita kapalit nun. Ako namang si gag
o, pumayag. Alam mo kung ano yung nasa isip ko nung mga panahon na yun? Paghihig
anti. Inisip ko na hindi lang dapat ako yung magdusa ng ganito kaya pumayag ako.
Isa pa, alam kong masama si Ynna kaya pumayag ako. Masama siyang babae kaya sig
uro dapat lang na mahawa siya sa'kin. Ang gago ko talaga no? Imbes na ako na lan
g yung magdusa, nandamay pa ako ng iba.."

Tapos yumuko siya. Siguro nahihiya siya sa mga ginawa niya dati.

"Totoo bang nirape mo siya?" I asked him.

Napatingin siya sa akin, mukhang nagulat sa narinig niya.

"Did you rape her?" I repeated my question.

Tumango lang siya. Natigilan ako. So.. she was saying the truth.

"Don't worry, wala akong balak magreport. I just.. want to know what really happ
ened.."

Umayos siya ng upo, nakita ko yung pasa pati sa upper body niya, "I was drunk th
at day. Narinig kong pinag uusapan ako ng mga estudyante ng St. Claire's.. Dirin
g diri sila sa akin. Alam mo kung gaano kasakit yun? Ang sakit! Nakakagago! Kaya
nung pumasok si Ynna sa sasakyan ko, i drove somewhere far. Hindi siya nakapala
g dahil nilock ko yung sasakyan. Muntik na nga kaming maaksidente kasi gusto niy
ang bumaba eh.. Then she told me that she's backing out. But then, i was drunk..
and angry. And i.. raped her.."

Natahimik ako. Hindi ko alam yung mararamdaman ko. Guilty? Oo. Totoo nga yung si
nabi nila.. Magguilty ako once na malaman ko. At eto na nga, guilt is eating me.

Nakatingin lang ako kay Grei. Hindi ako makasagot. He raped her! Kahit gaano pa
kasama si Ynna, wala siyang karapatang gawin yun!

"Maybe you're wondering kung bakit hindi ako nakakulong?" He asked.

Hindi ako sumagot. Alam ko naman eh. Dahil sa tatay niya. Ayaw niyang mapahiya y
ung tatay niya kaya she kept it all to herself.

"She's afraid. She's afraid na ikakahiya siya ng tatay niya pag kumalat yun. One
day, she came to my house saying na manahimik ako. She said that she'll go to t
he States at manahimik ako. That day, pinagsisihan ko yung ginawa ko. Ang gago k
o! Si Ynna? She's not that bad. Siguro yung nakikita ng tao, lahat ng kasamaan n
iya, but deep inside, she's alone.. and jealous of you."

Napatingin ako sa kanya. She's jealous.. of me?

"You have the perfect life, Dana. You're intelligent, kind, you have your family
and friends. And Ynna? She has nothing. Yeah, she's rich pero wala yung attenti
on ng magulang niya sa kanya pati lahat ng kaibigan niya, pera lang ang habol. D
o you realize how lonely she is?"

"Bakit mo to sinasabi sa'kin?" I asked him.

"I don't know. I don't know why i'm saying this. Siguro para mapatawad mo siya?
I don't know. Ang gusto ko lang iparating, live in the present and don't dwell i
n the past. Mahirap magregret kaya gawin mo na lahat ng gusto mong gawin hanggan
g kaya mo. Forgive and forget. Mas masaya mabuhay pag wala kang pinoproblema," t
hen he smiled.

"I still don't forgive you."

"Alam ko. But i'm glad you came.. At least, nabawasan na yung guilt ko kasi may
nasabihan na ako."

Tumayo na ako, "Pagabi na, alis na ako."

"Ingat ka. Be happy, Dana."

-----------------Cyriel's Point of View

"Aray!"

Binato ako ng unan ni Clarence. Nung isang araw pa to ah!

"Ano bang problema mo?"

"Ikaw. Ang arte mo eh," sabi niya sabay higa sa kama ko, "sabihin mo na kasi sak

in kung bakit tumakbong umiiyak si Dana nung isang araw."

Aish. Hanggang ngayong ba, yun pa din ang itatanong niya?!

"Wag ka ngang chismoso."

"Hindi ako chismoso, concerned brother lang," tapos tumabi siya sa akin, "ano na
?"

"Fine! I told her that i was married. Masaya ka na?"

Nagulat yata siya sa narinig niya kasi natulala siya.

"What?! You're getting married, and not married, right?"

"Bingi ka na yata eh. I told you, i'm already married."

"Kanino? Kay Payatot?"

Tumango na lang ako. Ayoko na nga kasing pag usapan eh. Naiinis lang ako!

"Bakit? Tsaka wala ka namang suot na wedding ring ah?" Sabi ni sakin sabay abot
sa kamay ko.

"Bakit ko naman susuotin yun? Tss." Sabi ko sa kanya.

"Gago ka talaga! Eh bakit ka nagpakasal?!"

"None of your business, KUYA!"

"Wag mo nga akong sigawan. Oo nga pala, tumawag si Dave, bar niya daw kayo ngayo
n, di ka daw ma contact eh.. Payong kapatid lang ha, uso na ngayon ang kabit. Tr

y mo," sabay tayo at labas ng pintuan.

"Gago talaga yun!"

Kabit? Si Dana?

-----------------------------

Andy's Point of View

"Nof, hindi ba pupunta si Dana?" Tanong ko kay Nof.

Kanina pa kasi kami ni Kim, Sara, Dave, at Nof sa bar pero wala pa din si Dana..
Kailangan ko na siyang makausap. Tatlong araw na.. Hindi ko na kaya..

"Ewan. Pero baka sumunod. Bakit? May problema ba kayo?"

Oo nga pala, hindi pa alam ni Nof yung mga nangyari, "Oo eh.."

"Nako! Si DK talaga!
uminom siya ng beer.
yang susukuan, Andy,
ahit pa iniisip niya
Magulo ba? Hahaha!"

Pagpasensyahan mo na yun, medyo abnormal talaga eh," tapos


Lasinggera talaga yung apat na babaeng 'to! "Pero wag mo si
ha? Kaibigan ko si DK, alam kong ikaw ang kailangan niya. K
na si Cyriel ang mahal niya, alam ko, ikaw ang mahal niya.

Nginitian ko siya, "Thanks, Nof. I need this."

"Ulol. Drama mo! Hahaha! Anyways, basta wag kang susuko. Kung si Kim at Sara, ka
y Cyriel, ako, Team Andy all the way. Wag mo kong ipapahiya ha?" Tapos tumawa ka
mi ng sabay.

"Oo naman. Hindi kita ipapahiya."

"Teka, paano na nga pala yan, tapos na yung thesis mo ah. Eh di magttrabaho ka n
a?"

Oo nga pala. Next sem, hindi na ako mag aaral.

"Hindi pa, may board pa. Atat ka masyado," tapos ngumiti ako. Kahit nakangiti ak
o, nasasaktan ako kasi malalayo na ako. Ngayon pa nga lang, malayo na ako eh..

"Sus. Sure naman na papasa ka eh, san ka magrereview?"

"Sa labas lang ng St. Claire's, may review center naman dun eh."

"Nakanaks naman! Ayaw talagang malayo eh!"

Ngumiti lang ulit ako, "Syempre, mahirap na. Mahal ko eh."

"Oo nga eh. Uy, ayun na pala si Dana sa entrance, puntahan mo. Galingan mo!!"

Pumunta na ako sa entrance kung nasan si Dana.

"Can we talk?"

----------------------

Dana's Point of View

"Can we talk?"

Napatingin ako sa nagsalita, si Andy pala..

Tumango lang ako tapos nagpunta kami sa labas. Dun sa tahimik na lugar.

"We're still together, right?" Andy said.

Nabigla ako sa tanong niya. Oo nga, kami pa ba? Naguguluhan ako. Ang daming nang
yari, hindi ko alam kung kami pa ba talaga o ano. Parang ang gulo gulo na..

"I- i don't know, Andy.. I'm sorry.." I said to him.

He gave me a weak smile, "We're still together, Dana. We're not breaking up. Oka
y lang naman sa'kin kahit si Cyriel eh, basta, stay by my side, Dana. I love you
.. I need you.. Kahit ako lang yung nagmamahal, okay lang.. Please, wag mo kong
iwanan.. Hindi ko kaya.." Then he hugged me. He's crying. Andy's crying.. becaus
e of me..

"Andy.."

"Dana.. please.. wag ngayon.. graduate na naman ako.. you won't see me often.. k
ahit girlfriend lang kita sa label, okay lang.. basta alam kong akin ka.. pag ka
ya ko na, papakawalan naman kita eh.. wag lang ngayon, Dana.. parang awa mo na..
hindi ko kaya.. mahal na mahal kita.."

Hindi ako makasagot. Ngayon lang nagmakaawa si Andy sa akin..

"Andy..." I uttered his name.

"Please, Dana.." He answered. No, more like begged, "buong buhay ko, nakukuha ko
lahat ng gusto ko.. pero bakit yung taong mahal ko, hindi ko makuha kuha?"

Humiwalay ako sa yakap niya, "Andy, ang unfair naman kung ipagpapatuloy pa natin
'to.."

"Okay lang sa'kin, Dana. Mahal kita eh, kailangan kong tiisin 'to. Wag mong isip
ing unfair ka kasi ako ang may gusto nito.. ako yung mahina.. ako yung hindi kay
ang tumayo pag wala ka.. Dana, iniisip ko pa lang na wala ka, hindi ko na alam y
ung gagawin.."

"Andy.."

Yun na lang yung nasabi ko. Naawa ako kay Andy.. He looked so.. desperate. Fuck
naman, Dana! Alam mo kung gaano kasakit yung magmakaawa. You should know kasi gi
nawa mo din yan.. Pero ano yung ginagawa mo? Letting Andy feel the same? How pat
hetic of me!

"Kung galit ka pa din sa'kin dahil sa nangyari dati.. I'm sorry, Dana! Sorry kun
g naniwala agad ako.. sorry kung hindi kita pinagkatiwalaan.. sorry kung ginawa
ko yun.. sorry sa lahat.."

Umiiyak na naman siya. Sige lang, Dana. Forte mo na yata ang magpaiyak ng lalaki
.

"Pero alam kahit ganun, wala akong pinagsisisihan sa ginawa ko.. kung hindi nang
yari yun, wala na akong chance.. kahit magalit sa'kin si Cyriel, wala na akong p
akielam.. wala akong kasalanan, minahal lang kita.."

I went near him and held his face, "hindi ako galit. Wala nang magagawa kahit ma
galit ako. It's all in the past, Andy. Ang gusto ko lang sabihin, ano'ng magigin
g kwenta ng relasyon natin kung pareho nating alam na may mali? That our relatio
nship was built on lies? Sa tingin mo ba magiging masaya tayo?"

He took a deep breath, "as long as you're with me, magiging masaya ako. I'll be
miserable without you, Dana.."

"You'll be more miserable with me, Andy."

"Wala akong paki kahit ano pang mangyari as long as you're with me."

"Andy naman.." i said.

"Dana, please.. maawa ka naman.. mahal na mahal lang kita.. wag mo naman akong g
anituhin.."

"Andy kasi--"

Hindi ko natapos yung sasabihin ko kasi Cyriel was behind Andy!

Nagulat ako kaya napatingin din si Andy sa likod niya. Buti na lang at madilim..
Ayokong makita ni Cyriel na umiiyak si Andy because of me..

Tahimik lang kaming tatlo. Walang nagsasalita. Nakatingin lang kami sa isa't isa
.

------------------Kim's Point of View

"Hey, best friend. Pupunta daw si Cyriel sabi ni Boyfie. Have you seen him?" I a
sked her.

OMG! Tinawagan ako ni Cyriel! That's a good sign di ba??

"Don't know. Tignan mo na lang sa entrance. Oo nga pala, baka makita mo din si D
ana, pakitawag naman?"

Oo nga, where the heck is DK?? Ang dami niya nang atraso sa'kin ah!!

"Why? Hindi ba siya pumunta?? Ang daya talaga nun!!"

"Nope, kausap siya ni Andy kanina. Pakitawag naman, may itatanong lang ako. Plea
se?"

"Fine. Sige, alis na ko."

Pumunta na ako sa entrance. Hmm. Buti at private yung bar ni Dave ngayon at wala
ng masyadong tao. Mamaya kasi sabihan na naman ako ni Clarence ng slut!! Kasalan
an ko bang maganda ako at madaming nag ooffer na bilhan ako ng drinks?? Kaasar!!

Pagbukas ko ng pinto, nakita ko si Cyriel, Andy at DK na magkakaharap. Problema


ng mga 'to?

Lumapit ako tapos kinalabit ko si DK, "Hey."

"Hey," she replied. Hmm. Something's off, i just can't figure it out, "tawag ka
ni Nof. May tatanong daw?"

Bigla naman siyang hindi mapakali, "ah, okay, okay. Tara na sa loob?" Tapos bigl
a niya akong hinatak. What the hell??

----------------Dana's Point of View

Shit! Buti na lang at dumating si Kim! Ang awkward! Ngayon lang ulit kami nagkah
arap tatlo after all that happened. Matagal ko na 'tong gustong mangyari eh.. pe
ro bakit ganun yung naramdaman ko? Nasaktan ako na natakot..

"Hey! Stop draggine me, DK!" Napatingin ako sa gilid. Kasama ko nga pala si Kim.

"Sorry," i said.

"It's fine. But what the hell happened there??"

I took a deep breath, "i'll tell you. Pero pwedeng maupo muna tayo?"

Then pumunta kami sa pinaka gilid na table. Kasama ko na silang tatlo. I think t
hey deserve to know the truth.

"Let's start. Ano ba ang gusto niyong malaman?" I asked them.

"What the hell happened there?? And why the hell is Andy crying??" Sabi ni Kim.

"What?! Umiiyak si Andy?" Sabi ni Nof.

"I was trying to.. break up with him.."

Biglang natahimik sila.

"What the fucking hell, DK?! I know you're my friend pero Andy's my friend, too.
He doesn't deserve this!" Nof said.

"I know.. and i'm sorry. But don't you think it'll be more unfair kung ipagpapat
uloy namin?"

Biglang nagsalita si Sara, "Dana's right, Nof. Kahit maging sila, anong sense? T
heir relationship was build on lies. Mas mabuti nang maghiwalay sila.."

Nagsalita din si Nof, "look, Sara. Alam ko namang wala akong masyadong alam sa m
ga pinagdaanan ni Cyriel at Dana. Hindi ko alam kung bakit grabe kang magtiwala
kay Cyriel. Pero kaibigan ko si Andy and i know i've seen more than enough. I've
seen kung paano niya mahalin si DK, kung paano niya kinalimutan yung pride niya
, kung paanong kaya niyang igive up lahat para kay DK.. He did all of these pero
ano? What would he get in return? A broken heart?"

Natahimik ako. I'm.. guilty.

"I know all of that, Nof. Pero alam mo ba kung bakit ganito ako kay Cyriel? I've
seen kung paano niya mahalin si Dana from the start, kung paano niya handang ta
nggapin si Dana kahit hindi siya sigurado kung may nangyari sa kanya at sa best
friend niya, kung paanong handa siyang lumayo para lang hindi mapahamak si Dana
at kung paanong magpapakasal siya para lang matahimik si Dana. Now, bakit sa tin
gin mo ganito ako kay Cyriel?"

Natahimik lang kaming lahat. Trying to digest everything they said. I know, it's
my fault.. Dahil sa'kin, nasisira ang barkada..

Biglang nagsalita si Kim, "whoah. Chill, guys. I know that probably, ako yung pi
nakawalang alam sa atin dito. And i won't take sides kahit best friend ko si Nof
, alright?" then she took a shot, "okay, pampalakas loob. Where was i? Aaaah. Ok
ay, pero based sa narinig ko, they both love DK.. Well, in their own ways. Pleas
e, wag na lang tayong magtalo."

"Tama si Kim, please, wag na kayong magtalo, Sara and Nof. I'm breaking up with
Andy and that's final. And for Cyriel? He's with Ynna and that's final."

"DK's right. She needs some space. Kung ipagpapatuloy nila ni Andy, it's fucking
useless. Para kang nag invest sa kumpanyang alam mong mabbankrupt na. And as fo
r Cyriel, wala tayong magagawa. He chose to be with Ynna. And don't you think it
would be better pag wala silang connection sa isa't isa? They can grow as indiv
iduals."

Nagsalita si Nof, "fine. I get it. But not breaking up, cool off. You heard it,
DK? Cool off."

Nagsalita naman si Sara, "fine then, Nof. And please don't give up on Cyriel, Da
na. He loves you."

Don't give up on the both of them. What should i do?!!

---------------Andy's Point of View

Umalis si Dana kasama si Kim. Kami lang ang naiwan ni Cyriel. Tangina. Bakit sa
lahat ng makakakita sa akin umiyak, eto pa?!

"Do you really need to cry para lang hindi ka niya iwan?" Sabi niya. Gago pala t
o eh!

"Paki mo? At least, kaya kong sabihin sa kanya na mahal ko siya. Kaya kong gawin
lahat para wag niya akong iwan. Eh ikaw?"

Umupo siya sa bench, "wag mo ng tanungin kung ano ang kaya kong gawin para kay D
ana. Matatalo ka lang."

I smirked, "oo nga pala. Kaya mong magpakasal sa iba para kay Dana. Sorry, pare,
hindi ako ganun."

"Hindi ka talaga ganun kasi selfish ka."

"Hindi ako selfish, tanga ka lang talaga."

"Sorry kung tanga ako. Masyado lang kasi akong tanga para isipin yung sarili ko.
Masayado akong tanga para mas gustuhin na makasama yung babaeng mahal ko kaysa
mamatay siya. Pasensya talaga, Andy, kung tanga ako."

Tumayo ako at sinuntok siya, "Tangina mo pala eh! Ano bang problema mo?!!"

Pinunasan niya yung labi niya na sinuntok ko, "Ikaw. Alam mo, okay na sa'kin na
sa'yo si Dana dati kasi alam kong aalagaan mo naman siya. Pero ngayon? Nagdadala
wang isip na ako na iwan siya sa gago na kagaya mo!"

Dana's Point of View

"What do you want, Cyriel?!" i said to him.

He didn't respond, instead, he kept on staring at me.

"What?!" i angrily asked him, "pupunta punta ka dito tapos wala ka namang sasabi
hin!"

He took a deep breath, "i'm sorry. Hindi ko alam kung san ako magsisimula.. Ang
dami kong gustong sabihin," then he laughed a little.

"I'll give you a clue. Start with what the hell are you doing here?!"

He stared at me. I noticed the dark circles around his eyes, "i love you," he sa
id then he smiled and took a deep breath.

I just looked at him. Bewildered. What the hell?!

"I love you, Dana. I love you," then he smiled again, "sorry if i'm being weird.
Ang tagal ko na kasing gustong sabihin sa'yo yan eh. I love you. Halos isang ta
on kong tiniis na wag sabihin yan. I love you, Dana. I love you."

Hindi ako makapagsalita. Ano'ng nangyayari?!!

"What's your problem, Cyriel?! 12 days na lang bago ka ikasal then you'll come h
ere telling me that you love me? What the hell is wrong with you?!"

He looked at the floor. Then he looked at me and gave me a weak smile, "alam ko.
Kaya nga sinasabi ko hanggang kaya ko pa.. hanggang pwede pa.."

Lumapit ako sa kanya at sinampal ko siya, "Sht naman, Cyriel! Ano bang gusto mon
g gawin ko?! Magsaya kasi sinasabi mo sa'kin yan? Nahihirapan na ako! Don't you
have a heart? Please spare me from all these bullshit!"

He came near me and hugged me, "five minutes lang, Dana. Five minutes lang."

Hinayaan ko lang siyang yakapin ako.

"Mahal na mahal kita, Dana.. Kung kaya ko lang ibalik ang panahon, hindi ko na g
agawin yun.. I made the wrong choice.. nung iniwan kita.. isang taon lang naman.
. isang taon lang akong nawala.. nagtiwala ako sa kung ano'ng meron tayo.. i tho

ught that one year is not enough to destroy whatever we had.. akala ko kahit uma
lis ako, pagbalik ko, ako pa din.. pero mali ako.. kasi si Andy na.."

Tahimik lang akong nakikinig sa mga sinasabi niya. He was crying. And i don't ha
ve the slightest idea what to do..

"Sana, Dana, ako pa din.. Sana tayo pa din.."

"Sana kaya ko din magpaka selfish gaya ni Andy.. Pero ano pa ba ang silbi kahit
magpaka selfish ako? Hindi ka na naman sa'kin para ipagdamot kita," then he laug
hed.

I felt my eyes shed a tear. Ayokong umiyak. He shouldn't see me crying..

He then looked at me. Pinunasan niya yung luha ko then kneeled.

Nabigla ako kung bakit siya lumuhod, "what are you doing?!"

"Hindi kita kayang bitiwan, Dana. Pero may mahal ka nang iba..
walan mo na ako.. Itaboy mo na ako.. Hindi ko na kaya.. Iwanan
say it, Dana.. Sabihin mong ayaw mo na sa'kin.. sabihin mo na
Andy.. sabihin mong hindi mo na ako kailangan.. Kasi pag hindi
y lang akong aasa.."

Please lang, paka


mo na ko.. Please
masaya ka na kay
mo ginawa, patulo

Natahimik lang ako. Hindi ko alam ang sasabihin ko. Kaya ko bang sabihin yun? Ka
ya ko ba siyang itaboy? Kaya ko ba siyang ibigay sa iba? Kaya ko bang sabihin na
hindi ko siya mahal?

"Please, Dana.. ayaw na kitang pahirapan.. just tell me to stop.. papabayaan ko


na kayo ni Andy kahit masakit.."

"Don't stop," i said.

Nagulat din ako sa sinabi ko. Hindi ko alam kung bakit ko yun nasabi..

He looked at me, "what did you say?"

"I said don't stop."

He stood up and went near me, "why? Why shouldn't i stop, Dana?"

"Don't stop loving me, Cyriel.. Please fight for me.." i said.

He hugged me, "i will, Dana. I will."

-----------------Andy's Point of View

"Katext mo si Sara?"

"Oo, bakit?" Sagot ni Dave.

"Pakitanong naman kung kasama niya si Dana, oh. Please, pare. Ilang araw ko ng k
ino contact, hindi sumasagot eh," pakiusap ko kay Dave.

Simula kasi nung nagkaharap kami sa bar, hindi na niya ako kinakausap. Lahat ng
call ko, nirereject niya. Yung mga texts ko, hindi niya nirereplyan. Pag pupunta
han ko naman sa bahay nila, laging wala sabi ng maids nila. Alam ko naman na gal
it siya sa'kin eh.. Pero ang sakit lang kasi na isipin na kahit anong reach out
at pagpapaliwanag ang gawin ko, walang nangyayari..

"No offense, Andy, pero hindi mo ba naisip na bigyan ng space si Dana? Alam mo n
aman na ilang araw pa lang na alam ni Dana yung tungkol sa nangyari dati eh.. Bi
gyan mo muna siya ng time para mag isip. Baka masakal na yun sa'yo pag palagi mo
ng kinukulit," sabi ni Dave.

"Alam ko naman eh. Pero ayoko siyang bigyan ng space kasi.. natatakot ako. Natat
akot ako, Dave. Natatakot ako na pag binigyan ko siya ng space, pumunta siya kay
Cyriel.."

Yung magkasama nga kami, may puwang na si Cyriel sa puso niya, pano pa kaya pag
lumayo ako? Alam ko naman eh, ang selfish ko! Masisisi niyo ba ako? Minsan na ak
ong nawalan ng minamahal.. Ayoko ng maulit pa. Hindi ko na kakayanin..

"Okay, pare. I understand. Hay. Kaya ayoko ng nag aaway sa babae eh, damay pati
kaibigan. Tignan mo, hati ang barkada ngayon," sabi ni Dave.

"Sorry. Hindi ko naman gusto yun eh.."

Binato ako ng unan ni Dave, "hindi naman kita sinisisi eh. Tss. Labo ng buhay. T
ara, ice hockey tayo. Nakaka stress kayong tatlo nila Dana eh."

--------------Kim's Point of View

"Boyfie!!" I called.

Hmm. Nandito ako sa bahay nila Clarence. Wala lang, just checking up on him. Mam
aya niloloko na pala niya ako behind my back!!

Umakyat ako sa hagdan papunta sa second floor. Wala namang tao sa first floor ma
liban sa maids. Hmm, wala yung parents nila? Mabuti naman!! Their mom is scaring
the hell out of me!! I mean, fine, they don't think that i'm good enough for th
eir daughter because of that Ariza bitch Domingo!! But what the heck, can't they
at least pretend that they like me even a bit?! Hello? I am Kimberly Miranda, t
he sole heiress of Miranda Architectural Firm. Does that ring a bell? Tss!

I walked through the hallway. As i was standing in front of Clarence's room, alm
ost ready to open the door, i heard a conversation. I peeped and i saw Cyriel an
d Clarence talking seriously. Hmm. That triggered my curiousity. I mean, never k
ong nakitang nag usap ng matino yung dalawang yun, laging naggagaguhan or nag aa
saran and now? They are seriously talking for Christ's sake!!

"Ano ngayon ang plano mo?" Boyfie asked him.

Cyriel took a sip of his rhum, "ewan. Kaya nga kita kinausap eh. I need your opi
nion about this."

Natahimik silang dalawa.

"Ang hirap lusutan niyan, Cyriel. You two are married. Legally."

Huh? What are they talking about? Eh di ba sa October 19 pa yung wedding nila ni
Skinny Bitch??

"Alam ko. Do you think you could pull some strings? I'll resort to blackmailing
kung kinakailangan. Please help me, Clarence. I badly need your help," Cyriel al
most pleaded.

Fudge!! What the heck is going on?? I'm lost!!

"What if--"

Cyriel cutted him, "I don't need what ifs, Clarence."

"Tss. Nyeta naman, Cyriel. Ang hirap naman kasi ng pinasok mo! Sino bang nagsabi

na pakasalan mo yung payatot na yan? Yan tuloy, ako ang napeperwisyo!"

Nagulat ako sa narinig ko kaya napapasok ako sa kwarto ni Boyfie! Uh-oh, i'm dea
d! (._.)

"What the-- Kim?!" Boyfie shouted.

"Hi, boyfie," i said and smiled a little. I'm busted. =___=

Nakatingin sila sa aking dalawa. Tss. Magkapatid nga sila, no wonder.

"Sorry, alright? Hindi ko naman sinasadya eh.." then nakatingin pa din sila sa a
kin, "fine.. I intentionally listened to your conversation.. I'm sorry."

After saying sorry, tumingin ako sa kanila. Umiiling si Clarence while si Cyriel
, uminom ulit ng rhum niya. I entered Boyfie's room and sat on the couch.

"What did you hear?" Rence asked me. Nakakatakot si Boyfie pag seryoso!! Note to
self: wag na wag mo siyang gagalitin, Kim!!

"Uhm, about sa marriage thingy?"

Pagkatapos kong sabihin yun, tinignan ko si Cyriel for a little confirmation kun
g tama nga ba yung narinig ko pero hindi siya nagsasalita.

"Cyriel, can i ask you a question?"

He just nodded.

"Did i hear it right? You and Ynna are married? I mean, as far as we know, sa 19
pa ang wedding di ba?" I asked him. Ew. Saying that they are getting married cr
eeps me bigtime!!

He nodded again.

"But why?! How?!" I asked him. OMG!! Pano nangyari yun?!!

"Wag ka ngang sumigaw," sabi ni Boyfie. Sorry naman!! Nakakagulat kaya!!

"Pero kasi--"

"What's done is done, Kim. It'll be better kung tutulungan mo na lang kami ni Re
nce na mag isip," Cyriel said.

"Tss. As if naman may maitutulong yan.." Clarence whispered. Ang kapal lang tala
ga!! Ganun ba ako kabobo?!!

Hindi ko na lang siya pinansin. Mamaya sabihin niya guilty ako kaya ako defensiv
e!!

"Cyriel, why are you doing this? I thought you already gave Dana up. What's with
doing this all of a sudden?" I asked him. Tama naman yung tanong ko di ba? All
these time, he chose to love Dana from afar, to love her discreetly. To sacrific
e for her, and now, he's getting through all the trouble for this??

Ngumiti lang siya.

"Kasi natauhan na yang gago na yan. Tss," biglang singit ni Clarence. Epal talag
a yung boyfriend ko na yun!! Ayun na eh!! Sasagot na si Cyriel eh!! Kainis!!

"Epal ka talaga," bulong ko.

"Tss. Sinasagot na nga yung tanong mo eh," tapos inirapan ako, "na realize niya
kasi na mas masarap maging selfish."

"Ano'ng masarap maging selfish?!! Napaka bad influence mo talaga kay Cyriel!!"

Nag smirk ang boyfriend ko, "ano mas gusto mo? Maging selfless? Ipamigay yung mg
a taong mahal mo? Yung mga bagay na gusto mo? We will live only once, Kimberly M
iranda. Better live without any regrets. Yan lang ang narealize ng little bro ko
. Tsaka ayos na sila ni Dana kaya gustung gusto niyang makawala kay Ynna. Baliw
talaga. Papakasal pakasal tapos ngayon hahanap ng butas para makalusot. Tss."

Ang lalim na yun ah!! Pero may point naman si boyfie.. We only have one lives, s

o we better make the most out of it. Kaya naman pipikutin ko na siya bago pa ako
maunahan ng sluts diya sa gilid! Wahaha!!

"So, ano'ng plano niyo, Mario and Luigi?"

"Mario and Luigi? Pauso mo talaga," sabi ni Boyfie. Ang cute kaya nung Super Mar
io!! (._.)

"Bakit? Cute kaya!! Si Cyriel si Mario, ikaw si Luigi. Tutulungan mo si Mario pa


ra makuha si Princess dun sa monster. At si Andy yung monster. Hahaha! Ako yung
mushroon pero si Luigi lang yung papalakihin ko," tapos nagwink ako kay Boyfie,
"wag mong sasabihin kay Andy na siya yung monster. Baka batukan ako nun!!"

Pagkasabi ko nun, umiling iling na lang si Clarence. Tss. Kill joy! Palibasa mat
anda na siya eh! Hahaha!

"Ang weird niyong dalawa," sabi ni Cyriel. Aba!! Sino ang weird sa aming tatlo??

Nagsalita naman si boyfie, "dahil narinig mo na yung plano namin, kasama ka na d


ito. Wag kang mag iingay."

Tinaas ko yung kamay ko, "roger that!! Yes! Dati, neutral ako, pero ngayon, cert
ified Team Cyriel na ako! Hahaha!"

"Tss. Lukring talaga. Anyways, balik na nga tayo sa pinag uusapan natin, Cyriel.
"

Naupo na ulit ng maayos si Cyriel. This will be a long night of planning. Ayos!

Kim's Point of View

"Nothing. They're clean as white," boyfie said as he give Cyriel a folder.

Pinaimbestigahan ni boyfie yung mga Henares. Kung may mga illegal ba silang gina
gawa or so, but it turned out na wala. Or baka naman magaling lang silang magtag
o? Oh well.

Hmm. Nandito kami sa headquarters namin. Joke lang!! Hahaha! Nandito kami sa con
do ni Cyriel. Ang linis ng condo niya!! Nakakainggit (._.) Nalaman ko na hindi p
a pala nakakapunta si DK dito. Naunahan ko pa. Mwahaha! I'm so great!!

"Ano'ng gagawin natin?" I asked.

"I talked to one of our lawyers, sabi niya, marami daw grounds for annulment. Sa
lahat nung sinabi niya, pinaka applicable yung pinilit ka lang magpakasal," my

oh-so-yummy boyfie said.

"Oo nga, brother- in- law!! Pinilit ka lang naman talaga ni Skinny Bitch, di ba?
?"

Hihihi. Feel na feel ko na siyang tawagin na brother- in- law.

"If we would do that, gano katagal bago ma annul yung kasal?"

"A year or so?"

Natahimik si Cyriel. Haaay. Naaawa ako sa brother- in- law ko, another year na n
aman. Dalawang taon na yung nasasayang.. Kung wala lang sanang nangyaring ganito
, eh di sana dapat magcecelebrate na sila ni Dana ng second anniversary nila. Oh
well, on the brighter side, kung hindi sila nagkahiwalay, hindi kami magkakakil
ala ni DK. Kung hindi kami nagkakilala, hindi ko makikilala si boyfie!!

"Ang tagal naman nun," Cyriel said.

"Baka mapababa natin hanggang 6 months? I don't know. Depende pa kung makikipagc
ooperate si Payatot. But knowing her, sure as hell that she won't," boyfie said.

Of course Skinny Bitch won't cooperate!! Wala sa bokabularyo nun ang salitang pa
gsuko. Baka hanggang sa pagkamatay niya masama pa din ugali nun eh. =___=

"6 months then, Rence," Cyriel said as he stood up.

"San ka pupunta?" I asked him.

"Kay Dana," he said. Hmmm. Someone's happy. Kainggit!! Bakit si boyfie, walang s
weet bone sa katawan, samantalang 'tong kapatid niya, ang sweet sweet kay DK!!

"Tss," boyfie said. Inggit lang. Siguro may crush 'to kay DK!!

"Alis na ko. Wag niyong kalatan yung condo ko," he said then went out.

Nakatingin lang ako kay boyfie. Uh- oh. (._.)

------------------Dana's Point of View

"Kathryn, Cyriel's downstairs," mom said as she barged into my room.

Napatayo ako bigla sa couch. What is he doing here?? Gusto ba niyang mabuking ka
mi?? Ang alam ni mom, si Andy pa din ang boyfriend ko eh! Tss.

"Kathryn," she called.

"Hmm?" I answered, half praying that she won't push through the conversation.

"What's the matter between you and Cyriel?"

"Uh, we're friends, mom! Don't be so nosy. Iisa lang ang circle of friends namin
kaya nagkikita pa din kami minsan," i said through my teeth. Ugh. I hate lying
to my parents!

"Fine. I'm just curious. Andy rarely goes here tapos bigla kong makikita si Cyri
el. I'm just worried, Kathryn. Anyways, where's Andy?"

"Uh, busy. Kaka grad lang eh. Board exam thingy," i said. That's not exactly a l
ie, right? Totoo namang magbboard siya eh.. Except lang sa busy part kasi iniiwa
san ko talaga siya..

"Say good luck to him for me," she said, "Andy's a great guy, Kathryn."

"Of course he is," i said.

"Sige, bumaba ka na. And please do say congratulations in advance to Cyriel for
me. Their wedding is the biggest news in the ellite circle these days."

I just nodded. Ugh! No need to, mom. Kasal na sila. That scheming bitch! Planado
niya na talaga lahat ng mangyayari!

I went downstairs and i saw Cyriel sitting. Buti na lang talaga at wala si Dad!
Galit na galit pa din siya kay Cyriel dahil sa ginawa niya sa'kin dati. Hindi k
o naman pwedeng sabihin yung totoong nangyari..

"Hey," he said.

I smiled, "bakit ka nandito?"

"I missed you," he said then held my hand. Nagulat ako kaya nabawi ko yung kamay
ko. Nagulat naman siya.

"Sorry," he said then gave me a weak smile.

"No, i'm sorry, Cy. It's just that baka makita tayo ni mom.."

"Sorry, i forgot," he said.

"Okay lang. So, bakit ka nandito?"

"Kausap ko si Clarence kanina about sa annulment. I thought you want to hear abo
ut it."

"Sure. Wait lang, bihis lang ako," i said.

Umakyat ako sa taas pero pagpasok ko, nakita ko si mom na nakaupo sa kama ko.

"What's happening, Kathryn?"

"What, mom? Hindi kita maintindihan.."

She looked at me, "i know that you're a bright girl.. Ikakasal na siya, anak. Do
n't make things even more complicated."

I smiled, "i know what i'm doing, mom. Trust me."

"I trust you, Kathryn. Don't degrade yourself into some low class woman.."

-------------------------Andy's Point of View

"Isa pa ngang beer," sabi ko sa bartender.

"One martini, please," sabi nung katabi ko.

Lumingon ako sa gilid ko kasi parang pamilyar yung boses nung babae, "Nof, ikaw
pala!"

"Yup, the one and only," sabi niya sabay tawa, "drinking alone?"

"Obviously," sagot ko.

"Ano'ng meron?"

"Pre celebration," sabi ko.

"Of what?"

"Our break up."

Binatukan naman niya ako, "ew, Andy. Ang emo lang, please. Hindi bagay sa'yo."

I laughed.

"Sorry naman."

"Anyways, how's DK?"

"Itanong mo kay Cyriel," sagot ko. Tss. Tama naman, di ba? Bakit sakin niya itat
anong eh ni anino nga ni Dana hindi ko makita!

"Napaka pessimist mo talaga," she said as she sipped her martini, "so suko ka na
niyan?"

Napaisip ako. Susuko na nga ba ako? Eh ang tanong, may isusuko ba ako? I didn't
have her from the start.. Ipinipilit ko lang naman yung sarili ko sa kanya di ba
? Tangina! Ang sakit talaga pakinggan!

I just smirked at her and drink my beer.

"Eh wala ka pala eh! Tss, akala ko pa naman hindi mo ako ipapahiya. Tsk"

I just smiled at her, "eh talo eh. Walang magagawa."

Binaba niya yung iniinom niya, "really, Andy? You're giving up? My God!! This is
so not you!!"

I laughed.

"What's so funny about that, Guzman??"

"Wala lang. It just really amuse me why you're so hooked up with helping me with
Dana," i said as i drunk my beer.

"Hmm, i honestly don't know why. Maybe because i see myself in you.. You know? T
he thing with Dave? I know how fcuking hard it is to insist yourself on someone,
" she said.

"Aray naman. Lalo mo lang pinapamukha na pinipilit ko lang yung sarili ko eh," i
said then laughed.

"I didn't mean it that way!!"

"Yeah, right."

"Anyways, ano plano natin?" She asked.

"Huh?"

"About you and DK, idiot!! You can't lose!!"

I laughed. Ano ba ang tingin nila sa nangyayari sa amin nila Cyriel at Dana? Lar
o? Pustahan? Tss. Hindi ko talaga maintindihan si Nof, Kim, at Sara. Weird.

"I don't know, Salvador. Uminom ka na nga lang jan. Ang ingay mo!!"

Buti naman tumahimik na siya.

"You know," she said as she get another martini, "i think that that's a good ide
a."

"Huh?"

"I mean, you, giving up on DK. I think that's great," she said.

Ano'ng problema ng babaeng 'to? Kanina halos sigawan na ako para hindi sumuko, n
gayon naman sasabihin niya na good idea yun?

"Alam mo ba yung kasabihan na 'you won't realize what you have until it's gone'?
I mean, hypothetical lang naman, pero sa tingin ko kasi kaya ka tine take for g
ranted ni DK kasi you're always there for her. Parang ikaw yung comfort zone niy
a. She knows that whatever happens, you'll be there for her."

I answered, "but it's the truth. Whatever happens, i'm always here for her."

Hinampas niya yung braso ko, "that's exactly your fault, Guzman!! Masyado mong b
inibigyan ng assurance si DK na come heaven, come hell, nandiyan ka pa din."

I shrugged, "what can i do? Eh ganun talaga eh."

Tapos nagsalita ng nagsalita si Nof. Non sense naman yung pinagsasabi. Lasing na
ata to eh. Tss. Gawin daw ba kasing tubig yung martini? Umorder pa ng tequila.
Lasinggera talaga. =____=

"Last na 'to," tapos tumayo siya mula sa stool at lumapit sakin. Medyo gegewang
gewang na kasi siyang maglakad kaya muntik na siyang matumba, buti na lang nasal
o ko, "thanks," sabi niya sa'kin tapos tumayo na, "anyways, as i was saying, why
don't you try me, Andy?"

O________O

Hinampas niya ako, "jerk! You're not even close to my type!! I mean, pagselosin
mo si DK? Maybe she'll come to realize na ikaw ang mas gusto niya pag na threate
n siya na mawawala ka. Threatened kasi siya kay Ynna kaya ganun na lang siya kay
Cyriel. Come to think of it, di ba ganung ganun din siya sayo nung may issue ka
y Jamie?"

She said then she passed out. Binuhat ko siya papunta sa sasakyan ko. Iniwanan k
o na lang sa parking lot yung sasakyan niya, balikan niya na lang bukas.

Pagselosin si Dana? Paano pag hindi siya nagselos? Matatanggap ko ba na hindi ni


ya talaga ako mahal? Tangina lang!

Tsaka papayag ba ako? Ayoko na eh.. Ayoko nang maulit yung nangyari kay Jamie..
Masyadong masakit eh..

"Dave.."

Napatingin ako kay Nof na nakihiga sa backseat. Napa iling na lang ako. Tss. Hin
di pa din pala nakakamove on kay Dave. Sakin niya tuloy nabuhos yung frustration
niya sa nangyari sa kanila ni Dave. Palibasa alam niyang hindi na mapaghihiwala
y si Sara at Dave eh. Tss.

Nof's Point of View

Fvck! Ang sakit ng ulo ko! =___=

Tinignan ko yung orasan ko, 9 a.m. na pala. Bumaba ako sa papunta sa dining room
kasi magbbreakfast na ako.

"Manang, si dad?" I asked Manang, one of our maids.

"Nauna na po siya, Senorita Nof. May meeting daw po kasi," she replied.

Haaay. What can i do? My dad's a workaholic. Most of the time, wala siya sa baha
y. Ewan ko ba, simula nung nag divorce sila ni mom nung nasa States pa kami, nag

ing ganyan na yan. Subsob sa trabaho. Pero hindi ko naman siya masisisi kasi mah
al na mahal niya si mom. Kaya imbes na maghanap ng bagong mommy ko, dinevote niy
a na lang yung sarili niya sa trabaho.

I didn't bother eat breakfast, nakakawalang gana kasi pag mag isa ka lang na kum
akain kaya umakyat na lang ako sa kwarto ko.

calling..

Kim Bitch

"Ang tagal mo namang sumagot. Tss," i said.

("Sorry naman, pwede? Anyway, why?")

"Breakfast tayo. Where are you?"

("Hala, i can't. I'm with boyfie eh. Hehe. Minsan lang 'to topaking makipagdate
kaya i'm gonna make the most out of this!!")

"Fine. Ipagpalit mo na ako sa boyfie mo. Tss, sige na," then i hanged up the pho
ne.

Hindi pwede si Kim. Hindi din pwede si Dana kasi naiinis ako sa kanya. Hindi din
pwede si Cyriel kasi hindi naman kami close. Hindi din pwede si Sara kasi naiin
is din ako sa kanya. Mas lalong hindi pwede si Dave! Umiiwas na ako.

calling..

Andy Guzman

"Salamat naman at naisipan mong sumagot?" I said to him. Ang tagal naman kasi ba
go siya sumagot. Pangalawang tawag ko na kaya. Tss.

("I just woke up. What's up?")

Tapos narinig ko pa siyang nag yawn. Nagising ko pa yata siya. Tsk.

"Tamang- tama, kakagising mo lang kaya malamang hindi ka pa nagbbreakfast. Kain


tayo?" I asked him in my sweetest tone. Say yes, Guzman! You're my last resort!

("Psh. Kakagising ko lang eh. Si Kim?")

"May date eh. And don't ask me about Dana and Sara. Duh? We're obviously not in
good terms because of you, Guzman!! You owe me this kaya samahan mo ako!!" I pro
tested.

("Fine. San ba?")

"Sa Starbucks tayo!!" I cheerfully said. Haaay. Namimiss ko na yung Oreo cheesec
ake nila eh. =___=

("Ginising mo ako para sa starbucks? Tss.")

"Wag ka ng magulo. Bawal kang magreklamo. Bye, Guzman!" Then i ended the line.

Haaaaay. I'm stuck with Andy. Bakit ba kasi ngayon pa naisipan nung Clarence na
yun makipagdate. Asar!

-------------------

Andy's Point of View

Tss. Ang sakit na nga ng hangover ko dahil sa kagabi, mapipilitan pa akong lumab
as ngayon para lang uminom ng kape?? Ang labo talaga ng buhay. Ang sakit pa ng u
lo ko. Mamaya mabangga pa ako sa daan dahil dito eh.

Nakarating na ako sa Starbucks tapos nakita ko si Nof dun sa gilid. Tss.

Lumapit ako, "bakit hindi ka pa umoorder?"

"Good morning to you, too, Andy!"

"Psh," sabi ko tapos umupo sa harap niya, "pagkatapos nito uuwi na ko."

Tinignan niya ako, "eh? Come on, Andy! Malling tayo! For all i care, mag eemo mo

ments ka lang naman sa bahay niyo."

Pakielam ba nitong babaeng to? Tss. Masama na bang manahimik kasi nasasaktan? Ta
ngina, Guzman! Naririnig mo ba yung sarili mo?! Nasan na yung babaerong Andy na
walang pakielam sa nararamdaman ng iba??

"Wala ka ng paki dun. Pasalamat ka nga pinuntahan pa kita dito eh," sabi ko sa k
anya tapos bumili na ako ng dalawang frappe at cheesecake.

Inirapan niya ako pagbalik ko, "tss. Emo much ka talaga."

Tapos nun, kumain na lang kami. Tsk. Bakit ba lagi na lang si Nof ang kasama ko?
Si Dana ang girlfriend ko eh.. Aish!

Pagkatapos naming kumain, "hitch naman ako, Andy."

"Huh? Nasan yung sasakyan mo?"

"Wala. Nagpahatid lang ako sa driver namin dito eh. Sige na?"

------------------

Nof's Point of View

"Oo na, oo na," Andy said, half annoyed.

"Yes!!" I said while jumping, "papayag ka din pala eh. Tss."

"You're annoying as hell, Nof," he retorted.

"I always get that, Andy. Hahaha!"

After that, sumakay na ako sa sasakyan niya. Buti na lang, 20 minutes away lang
yung mall kung hindi, baka ihinulog na lang ako ni Andy sa highway. Ang sungit n
iya talaga! Hindi naman ako naging ganyan kasungit nung nagbreak kami ni Dave ah
? Tss.

"Hintayin na lang kita sa carpark," sabi ni Andy pagkatapos niyang magpark ng sa

sakyan.

"KJ mo talaga, Guzman! Sumama ka na sa'kin. Malapit ka ng magstart magreview ng


board eh. I bet hindi ka na makakagala madalas kaya sumama ka na sakin. Please?"
I said then batted my lashes.

Umarte naman si Andy na parang nasusuka.

Hinampas ko siya, "ang kapal mo!! Sa ganda kong to, nasusuka ka??"

Tumawa lang siya tapos ginulo yung buhok ko at inakbayan ako papasok ng mall.

--------------------

Dana's Point of View

"Hey, Dana, Cy," Sara said as she approach us.

"What's up? I didn't see you so often," i said then i hugged her.

She rolled her eyes, "as if naman makikita mo ako, Dana. Eh palagi kayong magkas
ama ni Cyriel eh," Sara teased us. Namumula si Cyriel. How cute!

"Shut up, Sara. Namumula na si Cyriel oh. Hahaha!" I laughed then i pinched his
cheeks, "ang cute cute talaga ng Cyriel ko," i said.

We laughed at Cyriel's reaction. He was blushing like hell! Hahaha!

"Oh, tama na ang lambingan," Sara said, "Dana, samahan mo naman ako sa Mall, ple
ase?"

I said yes kaya nagpaalam na ako kay Cyriel na aalis kami


agi naman kaming magkasama these past few days. It's only
heir wedding? Yeah, what the hell. Ano pa ba ang pakielam
hindi yung church wedding na yun? Eh for all i know, they
nded!

But i trust Cyriel.. He won't let me down..

ni Sara. Afterall, pal


what? 10 days before t
ko kung matuloy man o
are already legally bi

Nakarating kami ng mall ng past 10. Kumain muna kami ni Sara since hindi pa daw
siya nagbbreakfast.

"Hey," she said, "ano'ng plano niyo ni Cyriel?"

I raised my brow, "what do you mean?"

"I mean about sa wedding, Dana! Seriously, 10 days na lang before that dreaded d
ay! Wala ka man lang bang planong ipaglaban si Cyriel?" She asked hysterically.

I almost forgot. Hindi nga pala nila alam na kasal na si Ynna at Cyriel kahit hi
ndi pa matuloy yung Church wedding na yan. Ayoko lang sabihin kasi baka kumalat
pa.. Anyways, gumagawa na naman ng plano si Clarence at Cyriel para mapabilis an
g annullment procedure..

I shrugged, "bahala na.."

Napanganga si Sara, "really, Dana? Bahala na? That's all you got?"

I smiled, "trust me, Sara. Bahala na."

------------------

Nof's Point of View

"How about this one?" I asked Andy for the nth time.

"Too long," he commented.

Binato ko siya ng hanger, "Guzman! Formal party yung aattendan ko, hindi strip p
arty! Ano bang too long yang sinasabi mo??"

Kasi naman po, lahat ng sinusukat ko, sinasabi niyang pangit, o kaya masyadong m

ahaba o maluwag. Ang binibigay niya sakin yung mga tipong sinusuot pag nagna nig
ht out. Wow. Anyareh sa Andy na kilala ko??

He shrugged, "you're asking for my opinion, young lady. I'm just giving you what
you're asking for," sabi niya sabay balik basa dun sa magazine na hawak niya.

"Tss," i uttered tapos pumasok ulit ako sa dressing room.

Binili ko na lang lahat ng sinukat ko. Nakakahiya naman kung isusukat ko lang pe
ro hindi ko bibilin.

Naunang lumabas si Andy ng shop habang binibigay ko naman yung card ko dun sa at
tendant ng shop. Pagkatapos kong masettle yung mga binili ko, lumabas ako ng sho
p para hanapin si Andy. Magpapatulong ako. 10 shopping bags kaya yung dala ko!!
Kamusta naman, di ba??

Nakita ko siya dun sa gilid, nakasandal lang. Mukhang artista lang eh. Haaay. An
g tanga talaga ni DK! Inaayawan niya lang si Andy, samantalang ang daming babaen
g makikipagpatayan makuha lang siya! Tss. Ano bang meron yung Cyriel na yun at h
indi niya makalimut kalimutan samantalang nanjan naman si Andy na lagi siyang si
nasamahan, handang gawin lahat para sa kanya. Tss. Ang labo lang talaga ni DK!

"Oy," i said.

Tumingin siya sakin, "tapos ka na?"

Hindi ako nagsalita, instead, inabot ko sa kanya yung mga paper bags na dala ko.

Tinignan niya ako sabay sabing, "ano gagawin ko jan?"

"Titigan mo," i said. Tinitigan nga ng gago!! "Really, Andy? Nasan na ang chival
ry? My god!!"

He rolled his eyes, "hindi ka naman kasi mukhang kailangang tulungan. Tss. Kayan
g kaya mo namang bitbitin to eh," he said pero kinuha niya pa din sa kamay ko yu
ng mga dala ko.

I smirked, "dami mong alam, Guzman. Tutulong din pala eh," i teased him.

Tinignan niya ako ng masama, "ihagis ko kaya to?"

I pinched his cheeks, "eto naman, hindi mabiro. Joke lang. Ang cute cute mo---"

"Nof?! Andy?!"

Sabay kaming napatingin ni Andy kay Sara at Dana.

What the heck??

--------------

Sara's Point of View

"Besty, samahan mo naman ako. Bibili lang ako ng dress, isasama ako ni Dave sa b
irthday ng lolo niya eh," i said.

Bigla naman akong tinukso ni Dana, "naks naman! Improving! Meet the family na ba
?"

Napangiti na lang ako. Thank God! Balik na sa dati si Dana! Dati rati kasi, lagi
na lang problema yung nasa isip niya.. At least ngayon, nakukuha niya ng magbir
o.

"Shut up, Dana. Birthday lang yun," sabi ko sa kanya.

Hindi pa din ako tinigilan ni Dana katutukso. Haaay. Buti na lang talaga okay na
siya! Natatakot kasi ako na baka biglang bumigay yung utak niya sa dami ng nang
yayari sa buhay niya! Masayadong magulo.. Sana maayos na..

Habang naglalakad kami, parang kakilala ko yung dalawang taong magkausap sa gili
d tapos nung makalapit kami, "Nof?! Andy?!"

Nagulat ako! Sino ba naman kasi ang hindi magugulat sa nakita namin?! Para silan
g nagddate!

(music starts playing..)

"D-Dana," sabi ni Andy.

Nakatingin lang sa kanya si Dana.

"Ano'ng ginagawa niyo dito?" Sabi ko sa kanila. Note the sarcasm. Oo, mas gusto
ko si Cyriel para sa bestfriend ko, but that doesn't mean na payag akong lokohin
ni Andy si Dana behind her back! Sino ba ang nagmakaawa na huwag siyang hiwalay
an ni Dana? Si Andy, di ba? Tapos ano yung makikita naman ngayon?? Na nagddate s
ila ni Nof? Wow naman!

"Sinamahan ko lang si Nof," sagot ni Andy.

"Ah. Kaya pala may pahawak hawak pa sa pisngi noh, Andy?"

"It's not--"

Hindi na natapos ni Andy yung sasabihin niya kasi nagsalita si Nof, "we're on a
date, Sara. Yun ba yung gusto mong marinig?"

"Ano'ng---"

"Shut up, Guzman. Don't bother to explain yourself. Si DK pwedeng makipagdate ka


y Cyriel, tapos si Andy hindi?"

Napatigil na lang ako sa mga sinasabi ni Nof. Seriously, nasan na yung babaeng m
abait at malambing na sinasabi sa akin ni Dave??

"What do you mean, Nof?" I asked her. Naiirita na ako sa babaeng to!

"What i mean is, kung ayaw na talaga ni DK kay Andy, fine! Willing naman akong s
aluhin si Andy," she said habang nakatingin kay Dana.

----------------------

Dana's Point of View

"D-Dana," Andy said.

He's looking at me. Tinignan ko siya, mejo pumayat siya tapos humaba na yung buh
ok niya.. Nilagay niya na din ulit yung stud sa right ear niya.. Parang yung dat
ing Andy na kilala ko..

"Ano'ng ginagawa niyo dito?" Sara said.

Halata naman na naiinis na si Sara. I mean, alam ko naman na from the very begin
ning, naiinis na siya kay Nof. Siguro dahil sa closeness ni Nof at Dave. Ano ban
g magagawa niya? Magbestfriend eh.. Isama mo pa ngayon na ang kasama ni Nof ay s
i Andy.. Mas maiinis siya, considering the fact na protective si Sara pagdating
sa mga taong sobrang halaga sa kanya..

"Sinamahan ko lang si Nof," Andy said while intently looking at me.

Pinipilit kong huwag siyang tignan pero..

"Ah. Kaya pala may pahawak hawak pa sa pisngi noh, Andy?"

"It's not--"

Hindi na natapos ni Andy yung sasabihin niya kasi nagsalita si Nof, "we're on a
date, Sara. Yun ba yung gusto mong marinig?"

Date??

"Ano'ng---"

"Shut up, Guzman. Don't bother to explain yourself. Si DK pwedeng makipagdate ka


y Cyriel, tapos si Andy hindi?"

I was caught off guard. Tama yung sinasabi niya.. Pero..

"What do you mean, Nof?" Sara asked her.

"What i mean is, kung ayaw na talaga ni DK kay Andy, fine! Willing naman akong s
aluhin si Andy," she said while looking at me.

Fvck, Dana! Tell them you're fine with it!

But am i really fine with it?

------------------

Nof's Point of View

Nandito kami sa loob ng sasakyan ni Andy. Hindi kami nagpapansinan.

"Nyeta naman, Nof! Ano bang nagddate tayo?!!" Sigaw ni Andy.

Huminga ako ng malalim, "ano bang pino problema mo?! Pasalamat ka nga tinutulung
an pa kita eh!"

Sumigaw na din ako. Ano ba kasi ang gusto niyang mangyari?! Maglungkut lungkutan
habambuhay??

Hinampas niya yung manibela, "tinutulungan? Sinabi ko bang tulungan mo ako?! Lan
gya naman, Nof! Lalo mo lang pinagulo eh! Baka isipin ni Dana niloloko ko siya!"

Tinignan ko siya sa maya, "tandaan mo to, Andrei Guzman. Lokohin mo man o hindi
si Dana, walang magbabago, si Cyriel at si Cyriel pa din. Alam mo kung bakit? Ka
si nakakasawa ka, kasi nakakasakal ka, kasi binibigay mo lahat kay Dana. Subukan
mo namang magtira sa sarili mo hanggang kaya mo pa," sabi ko tapos lumabas na a
ko sa sasakyan niya.

Sana naman matauhan ka na, Andy.. Habang may pag asa pa kayo ni Dana..

------------------

Andy's Point of View

"No offense, pare, pero sa tingin ko, tama si Nof," sabi ni Dave sa akin.

Lintik naman na babae yun! Hindi mawala sa isip ko yung sinabi niya!

'tandaan mo to, Andrei Guzman. Lokohin mo man o hindi si Dana, walang magbabago,
si Cyriel at si Cyriel pa din. Alam mo kung bakit? Kasi nakakasawa ka, kasi nak
akasakal ka, kasi binibigay mo lahat kay Dana. Subukan mo namang magtira sa sari
li mo hanggang kaya mo pa.'

"Kasi Andy ano eh. Ganito na lang ang isipin mo, yung ibang babae, gusto nila yu
ng binibigay sa kanila lahat. Pero si Dana? Iba siya, Andy. Alam mo naman yun, d
i ba? Mas gusto niya yung bagay na hindi niya nakukuha. Tignan mo na lang si Cyr
iel. Gusto niya si Cyriel kasi madaming humahadlang sa kanila eh.."

Nyeta namang buhay to oh! Si Dana lang naman yung kaisa isang taong gusto ko, hi
ndi ko pa makuha.. Ano bang dapat kong gawin? Magpanggap na hindi ko na siya mah
al para magustuhan niya ako? Para maisip niya na mas mahal niya ako? Tangina! Na
kakagago lang!

Huminga ako ng malalim, "Dave naman, ano'ng gagawin ko? Ganito ko talaga kamahal
si Dana. Hindi ko alam kung kaya ko bang magpanggap na hindi ko na siya gusto p
ara lang.. Fvck! Tangina!" Nasuntok ko yung lamesa, "pano kung hindi niya na tal
aga ako gusto? Pano kung si Cyriel pala talaga? Tangina, Dave! Hindi ko alam.."

"Kung ganun talaga.. tanggapin mo na lang, Andy. Kung nagawa mo ngang kalimutan
si Lynne, magagawa mo din yun kay Dana.." sabi ni Dave sabay tapik sa balikat ko
.

------------------

Ynna's Point of View

"Mom.. 5 days na lang pero hindi ko pa din siya macontact.."

My mom went near me and embraced me, "it's alright, Baby. You're already married
, alright? Stop crying.."

I hugged her and started crying, "pero mom.. Ang sakit eh.. ang sakit sakit.. an
g sakit isipin na kahit anong gawin ko, hindi ako mamahalin ni Cyriel.. na kahit
anong gawin ko, hindi ako sapat para mahalin niya.. na kahit anong gawin ko, si
Dana pa din.. ang sakit sakit.. para akong namamatay tuwing iniisip ko na hindi
siya sasaya sakin.. alam ko naman na masama yung ginawa ko eh.. pero ano bang m
agagawa ko? Tao lang din naman ako.. marunong magmahal.."

She started caressing my back, "i know, Ynna, i know.."

"Hindi ko na alam.. Lahat na ginawa ko.. Wala na akong pride, wala na akong dign
idad.. Lahat na binigay ko pero kulang pa din.. Ang sakit sakit na.. Pakiramdam
ko, mas malapit na akong mamatay dahil sa nararamdaman ko.. Hindi ko na kaya, mo
mmy.. Nasasaktan na talaga ako.. Mahal na mahal ko lang naman si Cyriel.. Ano ba
ng masama dun?"

She kissed my forehead, "don't worry, baby.. Everything will be fine.. Trust me.

Dana's Point of View

"Mom? Yes. Papunta na ako," i said through the phone. Pinapapunta kasi niya ako
sa office niya, "alright. See you in fifteen," i said then i hung up.

Shet! Natetensyon na ako. 3 days before the wedding! Bakit parang ako pa yung na
kakaramdam ng wedding jitters? Nyeta lang, Dana. Ikaw ang ikakasal? Pero kasi..
kinakabahan ako para kay Cyriel.. Kahit alam kong mahal niya ako, hindi pa rin m
aalis sa isip ko yung kayang gawin ni Ynna.. She already did the worst, what mor
e can i expect?

Pagdating ko sa office ni Mom, wow. Ang busy ng mga tao. May ilalabas nga pala s
ila na collection ngayon kaya hectic ang schedule nila. Kung dati si Dad lang an
g halos hindi na tumira sa bahay, ngayon kahit si Mom ganun na din.

Lumapit ako sa secretary dun, "Margo, si mom?"

"Good morning, Ma'am Dana! Pasok po kayo sa loob," sabi niya sakin with full smi
le. Oo nga pala, siya nga pala yung secretary ni mom na tinulungan ko dati.

Pumasok na ako sa office ni mom, "Mom?"

Tumingin siya sa akin, busy kasi siya sa sketch na ginagawa niya, "Kathryn, just
sit for a while. I'll just finish this."

Umupo muna ako sa couch niya while waiting. Kinuha ko din yung phone ko.

Si Andy..

'Dana..'

'Dana.. Mag usap naman tayo..'

'Please. Hindi talaga kami nagddate ni Nof! Ikaw lang ang mahal ko..'

'Dana naman..'

Puro ganito ang laman ng texts ni Andy.. Simula nung makita namin sila ni Sara s
a mall, lagi niyang sinasabi na wala hindi sila nagddate ni Nof. Sinabi ko naman
sa kanya na si Cyriel ang mahal ko.. Siguro mas magiging ayos pa ang lahat kung
totoo nga yung sa kanila ni Nof.. Siguro..

Binura ko na lahat ng texts ni Andy.

Lagi mong tatandaan si Cyriel, Dana. Kaya mo yan!

"Kathryn?"

Tumingin ako kay mom, "Yes?"

"Can i ask for a favor?"

"It depends," i chuckled, "just kidding. Ano ba yun, mom?"

She straightened her sit, "as you can see, the whole office's a mess. Malapit na
kasing irelease yung collection this quarter."

"Then?"

"It seems that there's a problem with one of our botique. Can you go and check i
t out? I'm darn too busy. Everybody in here is busy. I'm counting on you, Kathry
n."

God. Yun lang pala ang problema ni Mom. Akala ko pa naman kung ano na.

"Alright," i said.

Umalis na ako sa office ni mom right after that coversation. I swear, hinding hi
ndi ako magttrabaho dun pagka graduate ko. Ang taas ng pressure. Mas gusto ko pa
ng gumawa ng sarili kong line.

Pumunta na ako sa botique namin sa isang mall sa west. Hindi naman pala masyadon
g malala yung problem, may nagreklamo lang na customer tungkol dun sa isang cust
omized dress na pinagawa niya. Nakipag usap na lang ako dun sa babae. Is it our
fault that she gained 25 pounds kaya hindi magkasya yung damit na last month niy
a pa pala pinagawa??

"Dana?"

-------------------Andy's Point of View

'Dana..'

'Dana.. Mag usap naman tayo..'

'Please. Hindi talaga kami nagddate ni Nof! Ikaw lang ang mahal ko..'

'Dana naman..'

Ilang beses ko na siyang tinatawagan at tinetext pero hindi siya nagrereply. Gus
to ko lang naman sabihin sa kanya na wala talaga yung samin ni Nof eh. Hindi ko
talaga gusto si Nof, bilang kapatid pa siguro, pwede. Pero wala na bukod dun. Wa
la talaga. Hindi ko makita si Nof bilang girlfriend ko.

Binato ko yung cellphone ko. Nyeta naman, Andy! Aish! Ang malas mo talaga sa bab
ae kahit kailan.

"Andrei?"

Napaupo ako ng maayos sa kama ko pagpasok ng nanay ko.

Pinulot niya yung phone ko sa sahig, "ayaw mo na ba sa phone mo, Andrei?" Sabi n
iya ng pabiro, "may problema ka ba?"

Umiling lang ako. Wala naman akong balak na isama pa sa gulo namin nila Cyriel a
ng mga magulang namin. Malalaki na kami, kaya na namin to.

"Are you sure?"

Tumango na lang ako.

"Well then, samahan mo naman ako sa West Mall. Balak kasing maginvest ng Daddy m
o dun, titignan lang natin kung ano ba ang lagay nung mall na yun. At the same t
ime, samahan mo naman akong magshopping," sabi niya.

"Ano pa nga ba?" Sabi ko ng pabiro. Matagal ko nang hindi nakakasama ang mommy k
o. Siguro okay na din to para kahit pano, makalimutan ko yung problema ko.

Pagdating namin sa Mall, nag ikot ikot lang kami. Okay naman yung mall. Bakit ka
ya mag eexpand na naman si Dad ng business? Halos hirap na hirap na nga siyang i
manage yung hotels eh, dadagdagan na naman niya? Tss. Ang hirap talagang intindi
hin. Bahala na nga. Si Kuya na ang bahala sa mga business ni Dad. Kaya nga siya
nag aaral pa sa Amerika para dun eh. Good luck na lang talaga.

"Shopping time, baby," sabi ni Mom na masayang masaya.

Ang hirap intindihin ng babae. Bili ng bili ng damit pero hindi naman ginagamit
lahat. Minsan kawawa din ang mga lalaki. Hirap na hirap magtrabaho para lang mab
ili nung mga asawa nila yung gusto nila. Pero kung mahal mo naman talaga ang bab
ae, walang halaga kahit gaano ka pa nahihirapan, mapasaya mo lang siya.

"FHF na pala 'to, Andrei," sabi ni mom.

Oo nga pala, kila Dana nga pala 'to.

"Dana?"

Napatingin ako kay mom nung sinabi niya yun. Totoo nga. Nandun siya. Si Dana.

"Ah, eh, Tita," sabi ni Dana sabay lapit kay mom.

"Good to see you again, Dana! I haven't seen you for a while. Nakakatampo ka.."

----------------Dana's Point of View

"Dana?"

Napatingin ako sa likod ko only to see Andy and his mom behind me.

"Ah, eh, Tita," i said.

"Good to see you again, Dana! I haven't seen you for a while. Nakakatampo ka.."

Fudge, Dana! What to do, what to do??

"Sorry, Tita. Been busy these days. Tinutulungan ko si Mom sa business niya eh,"
i lied.

Nakatingin ako kay Andy.

Sorry, Andy. Ayaw kong saktan ka pero ayaw mo din akong iwan.. Ano na lang ang g
usto mong gawin ko?

"That's alright, dear. It's good to hear na tumutulong ka sa family business. Sa


na nga ay masabihan mo tong si Andy na tumulong din at huwag ipasa lahat sa kuya
niya. Mabuti na lang talaga at ikaw ang girlfriend niya. Di ba?"

Huminga ako ng malalim, "actually, Tita, coo---"

Lumapit sakin si Andy at hinawakan yung kamay ko, "oo nga, mom. Mabuti na lang a
t si Dana ang girlfriend ko," he said then smiled at me.

Ano ba, Andy? Mas lalo mo lang ginagawang komplikado ang sitwasyon natin..

"That thing i'm sure of. O siya, titingin muna ako ng mga bagong designs niyo, i
ha," his mom said then left us.

----------------------Andy's Point of View

Hindi ko din alam kung bakit ko sinabi yun. Natatakot ako. Natatakot ako.

"Why did you say that, Andy?"

Nakatingin lang ako kay Dana.

Wala na ba talaga tayong pag asa?

"Sorry, Dana. Hindi ko pa kayang sabihin," i said.

"Naiintindihan kita, Andy. Pero kasi.. mas magiging komplikado pa yung lahat pag
pinatagal mo pa to.. Alam mo naman na simula pa lang, si Cyriel na talaga.."

Yun na nga. Umaasa ako na sana kahit minsan, mas naging lamang ako kay Cyriel, D
ana..

Ngumiti lang ako, "hindi ko alam, Dana. Wag mo naman akong hiwalayan ng ganito..
Wag mo naman sanang ipamukha na wala akong halaga, Dana.. Sana naman ipakita mo
sakin na nasasaktan ka sa paghihiwalay natin. Kahit yun lang."

---------------Dana's Point of View

"...sana naman ipakita mo sakin na nasasaktan ka sa paghihiwalay natin. Kahit yu


n lang."

Andy left after that.

Guilt stings inside me.

I didn't mean to hurt you, Andy. It's just that...

My thoughts were interrupted by Andy's mom, "is everything okay, Dana?"

I plastered a smile on my face, "of course, Tita. Everything is fine."

She smiled at me, "good to hear that. I really like you for my son, iha. After L
ynne died, ikaw pa lang ang babaeng nakapagpasaya sa anak ko. I really wish na s
ana kayo ang magkatuluyan."

I just smiled, not wanting to put their hopes even higher.

----------------------

Cyriel's Point of View

"Pano ba yan, lil' bro? May mga nakabantay na guards sa labas ng bahay," sabi ni
Clarence.

Napatingin ako mula sa balcony. May mga itim na kotse na naman sa labas ng gate
namin.

"Tss," napahawak na lang ako sa batok ko.

Umupo si Clarence sa kama ko, "mukhang natunugan nila na tatakas ka eh. Hirap ta
lagang kalabanin ng mga Henares."

Simula nung isang araw, may mga nakabantay na na sasakyan sa gate namin. Kahit p
ag aalis ako, may mga nakasunod na sasakyan sa akin. Kahit san ako magpunta, may
nakasunod sa akin.

"Tsk."

"Back up plan, Cy?" Tanong ni Clarence.

Hindi ako nakasagot. Baka kasi pag nagpumilit akong tumakas, si Dana ang balinga
n nila.

"Wala ka?" sabi ni Clarence, "ako, meron. Gusto mong marinig?"

-----------------

The day after.

Dana's Point of View

calling..

"Hello? Ano?! Sang ospital?!!"

51st Chapter

Cyriel's Point of View

"..ganito yan ha? Ibubunggo natin yung sasakyan mo sa puno tapos kunwari, malala
yung tama mo. Kuha mo ba?" sabi ni Clarence.

Tumango na lang ako. Tss. Akala ko naman kung ano na yung plano niya.

"Pero shet naman! Ako ang papagalitan nito nila mom eh. Tsk," reklamo niya.

Ang daming reklamo pero siya naman ang pasimuno. Baliw.

Pagkatapos nun, tinawagan niya na yung binayaran niya na sasakay at magbubunggo


nung sasakyan ko. Hindi ko alam kung saan niya nakuha yung tao na yun. Basta per
a, kahit ano pinapatulan ng mga tao eh. =___=

After 20 minutes, nakadikit na sa harap ng puno yung sasakyan ko. Good job, kuya
.

"Oh? Sakay na at ng makatawag na ako ng ambulansya," sabi niya sabay tulak sa'ki
n papasok ng sasakyan.

"Eto na nga," sabi ko habang papunta dun sa driver's seat.

Sasakay na sana ako pero napansin kong may bumubusina sa harap namin.

"Tangina, Cyriel! Walang preno yan! Tumabi ka!!"

----------------Andy's Point of View

Nyeta! Bakit ako pa yung napaalis sa sarili kong bahay?? Bakit ba kasi nandun si
Nof?? Ang kulit ng lahi ng babaeng yun eh!

Nasa autoshop yung sasakyan ko kaya kinuha ko muna yung sasakyan ni kuya. Wala n
aman siya dito eh.

Dumaan ako sa backdoor para hindi ako makita ni Nof. Nyetang babae, nakakairita
na din minsan =___= Pasalamat siya bestfriend siya ni Dave.

Nagdrive ako papunta sa hindi ko alam kung saan. Basta makalayo sa bahay, okay n
a ako. Punta muna siguro ako sa cementeryo. Puntahan ko muna si Lynne. Tama.

Nag U-turn ako papunta sa cementeryo. Pagkatapos kong makalagpas ng highway, put
angina!! Bakit wala akong brake??

Bumusina ako ng bumusina kasi may nakita akong dalawang lalaki na nakatayo. Baka
masagasaan sila kaya bumusina ako. Hindi ko na alam kung saan ako mababangga ku
ng itutuloy ko pa yung pagmamaneho ko kaya ibinangga ko na lang din yung sasakya
n ko sa puno.

----------------Cyriel's Point of View

Nakatulala lang kami ni Rence.

Kung kanina, nagpplano kami ng aksidente, ngayon, nangyari na nga.

"Tangina!" Biglang sigaw ni Clarence, "tangina, Cyriel! Si Andy 'to!"

Nagulat ako sa sinabi niya kaya hindi agad ako nakagalaw.

Si Andy?

Si Andy ang sakay ng sasakyan na halos mahati na sa dalawa sa lakas ng pagkakaba


ngga??

"Tangina, Cyriel! Tulungan mo ako dito!"

Nyeta, Cyriel! Gumalaw ka! Si Andy yan, kaibigan mo!

Dali dali akong pumunta malapit sa driver's seat. Nakita ko dun si Andy, walang
malay. May mga galos siya sa mukha at braso pero mukhang wala namang major injur
ies pero naipit yung kaliwang paa niya sa loob ng sasakyan.

"Fuck," sabi ni Clarence, "pumasok ka sa passenger's seat."

"Ha?"

"Pumasok ka na, Cyriel! Nyeta, bilis!"

Pumasok na agad ako sa sasakyan gaya ng sabi ni Clarence. Maayos naman yung kabi
lang parte nung sasakyan kaya nakapasok pa din ako.

Hindi ko matignan si Andy.

Fuck.

Pumikit na lang ako.

"Tumawag na ako ng ambulansya," sabi ni Clarence na medyo nangangatog yung boses


, "alis lang ako, pero dun lang ako sa malapit. Yung seatbelt mo?"

Sinuot ko yung seatbelt ko.

"Ano'ng gagawin ko?"

Tinignan niya ako, "gaya nung plano. Naaksidente kayo ni Andy. Punyeta! Ang taga
l naman ng ambulansya! Tangina! Si Andy!! Fuck!"

Pumikit na lang ulit ako, "sige na, ako nang bahala dito."

Pagkatapos ng ilang minuto, dumating na yung ambulansya. Ako ang unang nilagay s
a stretcher. Si Andy naman, dahan dahan pang kinuha dahil unconscious pa din siy
a at naipit yung paa niya sa napiping side ng sasakyan.

Habang nasa loob ako ng ambulance, hindi ko alam kung paano ko sasabihin kila Ti
ta na naaksidente si Andy kaya si Dave na lang ang tinawagan ko.

Sinabi ko sa kanya na naaksidente kami pati na kung saang ospital kami dadalhin.

Tangina, Andy. Umayos ka!

--------------------

Dana's Point of View

"Are you kidding me?"

Pinipigilan ko yung sarili kong tumawa nung mareceive ko yung package mula kay Y
nna.

Tinignan ko yung laman ng box.

Gown.

Maid of honor's gown to be exact.

What the fuck is her problem?!

Sa tingin niya ba talaga pupunta ako sa kasal niya? Not in my wildest dreams! No
t a fucking chance in hell!

Kumuha ako ng gunting para gupitin sana yung gown ng biglang magring yung phone
ko.

Dave Cruz
calling...

"Hello? What?!! Saang ospital?!"

Pagkatapos kong marinig yun, dali dali akong pumunta sa ospital na sabi ni Dave.

Fuck! This can't happen.. Hindi pa maayos ang lahat.. Wag muna ngayon..

Pagdating ko sa ospital, pumunta agad ako sa nurse's station.

"Nasan si Cyriel Perez?" I asked her.

Tinignan nung nurse sa files nila yung name. After what it felt like forever, "r
oom 9102."

"How about Andrei Guzman?" i asked.

Nagscan ulit siya ng files, "emergency room."

Pumunta agad ako ng elevator at pinindot ang 9th floor. I need to see Cyriel saf
e first then i'll go to Andy.

-------------------Cyriel's Point of View

"San na si Andy?" I asked Rence.

"E.R.," sabi niya.

"Bakit? May problema ba??" Tanong ko. Shet naman, Andy! Wag ka ngayon mawala!

Huminga siya ng malalim, "fracture daw yata or dislocation. Don't ask me further
. I hate science."

Fuck. Fuck. Andy! What the hell is your problem?? Magpapakamatay ka dahil ano? D
ahil ako yung pinili ni Dana? Shit! You're better than this!

Tahimik kami ni Clarence na naghihintay ng balita kay Andy ng bumukas ang pinto.

Lumapit agad sa akin si Dana at niyakap ako, "Cyriel? Are you okay? Does it hurt
?"

Hinawakan ko yung kamay niya at nginitian siya, "i'm fine. Really."

She looked at me, "really?"

"Really really," i smiled again.

"But what happened? Bakit kayo magkasama ni Andy na naaksidente?" She asked.

Hindi ako makapagsalita. I don't know what to say. I don't want to lie in her fa
ce.

"Walang brake," singit ni Clarence.

"Oh God! Thank God walang serious injuries," she said tapos niyakap niya ulit ak

o. I hugged her back.

"Punta muna ako kay Andy," sabi ni Clarence.

Tumango lang ako at tinignan si Dana, "aren't you gonna see him?"

She smiled, "maybe later. I need to be with you first."

I smiled and kissed her knuckles.

-------------Dana's Point of View

I almost run papunta sa kwarto niya. Sht, Cyriel Perez! You better be okay!

Pagdating ko sa kwarto, binuksan ko agad yung pinto at nakita ko si Cyriel na na


kahiga sa hospital bed, si Clarence naman, nakatayo lang malapit sa window.

Lumapit agad ako sa kanya and hugged him, "Cyriel? Are you okay? Does it hurt?"

He held my hand and smiled to assure me that he's fine, "i'm fine. Really."

I looked at him, "really?"

"Really really," he smiled again.

"But what happened? Bakit kayo magkasama ni Andy na naaksidente?" i asked.

I was half praying na wag niyang sabihin na it was because of me. Hindi ko talag
a mapapatawad ang sarili ko pag nalaman kong naaksidente sila dahil na naman sa
akin! I don't deserve it!

"Walang brake," Clarence interrupted.

"Oh God! Thank God walang serious injuries," i said then hugged him.

"Punta muna ako kay Andy," Clarence said then went out the door.

"Aren't you gonna see him?" Cyriel asked me.

I honestly want to go and see Andy right now. But Cyriel needs me here. Ayokong
iwanan siya mag isa.

I smiled instead, "maybe later. I need to be with you first."

He smiled and kissed my knuckles.

-----------------Ynna's Point of View

"Good," i said to Danielle. Naipadala niya na daw kay Dana yung gown.

It's our wedding tomorrow. I hope everything will turn out fine. Since a few day
s ago, pinapabantayan na ni mom si Cyriel. I was scared na tatakbuhan niya ako s
o to give me assurance, pinabantayan niya si Cyriel.

I rode in my car and drove to Cyriel's home. I need to check up on him. I don't
care if he's with Dana so long as he's by my side.

Pagdating ko sa bahay nila, walang tao so i asked one of their maids.

"Where's Cy?"

"Ma'am Ynna, nasa ospital daw po," she said.

"What?!!"

"Naaksidente daw po. Pinapadala nga po ni Sir Clarence ang mga gamit ni Sir Cyri
el eh," she said and showed me a duffel bag.

Kinuha ko yung bag and said, "i'll take it from here."

-----------------Andy's Point of View

Fuck.

My head hurts.

Pagtingin ko sa paligid, bakit puro white? Where am i?

"Andrei? Oh God! Thank God you're finally awake!" mom said.

Tinignan ko yung paligid ko, nandito si Nof? Clarence? Dave? Sara? Kim? Ano ba a
ng nangyari?

With my head still dizzy, i asked them, "what happened?"

My mom suddenly burst into tears, "may amnesia ka na naman?"

I waved my hand and said, "no, mom. I just can't remember why i am here."

"You got into an accident with Cyriel. Good thing you two are safe," she said.

With Cyriel? Kasama ko ba siya?

Shit!

Nabangga ko ba siya?? Siya ba yung lalaki na binubusinahan ko??

"Where is he??" I asked. Nyeta! Nasagasaan ko nga ba si Cy??

"Calm down, Andrei. He's just in the room beside this, and he's doing fine so no
worries," mom said.

Pagkatapos kong marinig yun, natahimik na ako. Nag alok si mom na bumili ng pagk
ain kaya naiwan kami dito.

"Si Dana?" I asked them. Sa lahat ng tao na gusto kong makita ngayon, si Dana yu
n..

Hindi sila makatingin sa'kin.

"Na kay Cyriel," Dave said.

I smiled.

"Pero binisita na naman niya ako kanina nung tulog ako, di ba?"

Lumapit sa'kin si Nof at niyakap ako, "stop hurting yourself, Andy. Stop asking
stupid questions."

Hindi ka pa nasanay, Andy. Kailan ka ba naging priority?

------------------Ynna's Point of View

Room 9102

I was about to open the door when i heared them talking.

"I love you, Dana. More and more everyday."

"I know."

"Don't give up on me."

"Of course, Cyriel. I'll never give up on you. Never."

I closed the door again and left the bag on the floor instead and left.

I'm really good at torturing myself, aren't i?

52nd Chapter

Andy's Point of View

"You sure?" Tanong sa'kin ni Nof habang sinusubukan kong tumayo.

Tumango na lang ako tsaka sinubukang igalaw yung kaliwang paa ko. Inalalayan niy
a ako habang nakahawak ako sa isa sa mga hawakan, "sht," nasabi ko na lang nung
natumba ako.

Bigla bigla namang lumapit sa'kin sila Nof at Dave nung napaupo ako, "pare, daha
n dahan lang. Wag mong biglain yung paa mo, baka lalong mapatagal yung recovery
mo eh."

Ilang araw na ba mula nung maaksidente ako? 9 days? Ang bilis lang ng araw, ang
dami na ding nangyari. Hindi natuloy yung kasal ni Ynna at Cyriel. Masaya ako pa
ra sa kanya kasi alam ko naman na hindi niya mahal si Ynna kaya parang nakakalok
o lang kung matutuloy pa din yung kasal. Pero para sa sarili ko? Nalulungkot ako
. Nalulungkot ako kasi alam ko sa sarili ko na sa mga nangyayari, mas malabo na
maging kami ulit ni Dana.. Lalo na ngayon na hindi natuloy yung kasal. Ewan ko,
hindi ko na talaga maintindihan yung sarili ko. T@ngina lang eh.

Umiling ako, "pare naman, birthday ko na bukas hindi pa din ako makalakad. Paran
g tanga lang," sabi ko sabay subok ulit na tumayo at maglakad.

Binatukan ako ni Nof, "para ka ngang tanga. Magpumilit ka pa jan ng mas lalong t
umagal ang recovery mo. Tss."

"Ilayo mo nga yang bestfriend mo, Dave. Inaatake na naman ng pagka abnoy eh," sa
bi ko kay Nof.

Inirapan ako ni Nof. Pikon talaga yun. Pero kahit ganyan yan, malaki yung utang
na loob ko kasi isa siya sa mga nagbantay sa'kin simula nung ma confine ako dito
. Kahit pa puro pang aasar at pangbabara lang yung naririnog ko minsan sa kanya,
ayos lang. Hindi ko nga maintindihan kung bakit iniisip nila Dave na may kung a
numan sa'min ni Nof kasi wala talaga. Para lang siyang kapatid eh. Wala kasi ako
ng kapatid na babae kaya siguro ganun ako sa kanya, pwera na lang pag minsan kin
ukulit niya ako tungkol kay Dana kasi naaasar talaga ako. Pero bukod dun? Cool k
ami ni Nof. Balak ko ngang ipakilala yung kapatid ko kay Nof eh. Malapit na nama
ng umuwi yata si Kuya Andrew eh, sa States kasi siya nag aaral ng Business Admin
istration since siya yung papalit kay Dad. Tutal magbestfriend naman sila ni Kim
, boyfriend-in niya na din yung kuya ko. Haha!

Ginulo ni Dave yung buhok ni Nof, "tara na nga. Baka mas lalong hindi makalakad
si Andy sa pangungulit mo eh."

Dinilaan ko siya.

"Mukhang tanga, Andy," sabi niya sabay irap.

"Baboy," sabi ko.

"Bwisit!!" Sabi niya sabay labas ng pinto. Hahaha! Pikon kasi. Siya kasi yung ku
makain ng pagkain ko dito eh. Ang takaw lang eh.

Bago sundan ng Dave si Nof sa labas, lumapit muna siya sakin tapos may inabot, "
bigay niya. Hindi pa din siya makapunta eh. Sorry, pare."

Tumango na lang ako, "sige. Ingat kayo pauwi."

"Punta kami bukas sa birthday mo."

Lumabas na si Dave, naiwan na naman ako mag isa. Sa buong 10 araw na pagsstay ko
dito sa ospital, isang beses pa lang ako dinalaw ni Dana. Ang nakakainis pa dun
, yun pa yung panahon na tulog ako. Pero okay na din siguro yun kaysa wala. Kont
i na lang naman eh.. Nararamdaman ko na malapit na akong sumuko..

Tinignan ko yung bigay niya. Libro. Ngumiti na lang ako. Kung anu ano yung binib
igay niya, libro, cds, dvds, pero sana magpakita siya sa'kin. Mas gusto ko yun e
h, lalo na na birthday ko bukas. Sa totoo lang, hindi talaga ako mahilig mag wis
h pag birthday ko pero susubukan kong humiling ngayon.. Sana malaman ko na yung
dapat kong gawin. Nahihirapan na din kasi ako..

-------------------Cyriel's Point of View

"Senorito Cyriel, nandyan po ulit si Miss Ynna sa baba," sabi nung isa sa mga ka
tulong namin.

Sumagot si Clarence, "sabihin mo namatay na at byuda na siya. Tss."

Binato ko siya ng unan, "g@go. Buhay na buhay pa ko pinapatay mo na."

Simula nung araw na naaksidente ako, laging pumupunta si Ynna mula nung nasa osp
ital ako hanggang ngayon na nasa bahay na ako. Naawa na din ako sa kanya kasi ka
hit papano naging magkaibigan na din kami ni Ynna nung nasa States kami..

Lumapit sa'kin si Clarence, "sabihin mo nga sa'kin. Ano ba talaga yung payatot n
a yun sa'yo?"

Tinulak ko siya, "kaibigan?"

Tumawa siya ng malakas, "t@ngina, Clarence! Kaibigan? Sigurado ka? Hahaha!"

"Mabait naman kasi si Ynna eh.. Siguro nagkamali lang siya ng taong minahal kaya
siya ganun. Mabait yun, Clarence. Sa loob ng halos isang taon na magkasama kami
, ni minsan hindi yun magalit sa'kin. Kahit puro si Dana yung sinasabi ko, tahim
ik lang siya tapos iiyak pag mag isa na lang siya.."

Nagsalita siya, "sigurado kang kaibigan lang?"

"Para kang tanga," sagot ko. Ano ba kasi yung gusto niyang sabihin? May gusto ak
o kay Ynna? Parang timang nga lang talaga!

"Eh kasi naman, dati pa kita kinukulit na sabihin na lang natin kila mom at dad
yung tungkol sa sakit niya tapos ayaw mo namang pumayag. Minsan tuloy napapaisip
ako na may gusto ka na dun," sabi niya.

"Sasabihin ko ulit, mukha kang tanga. Kaibigan lang, hanggang kaibigan lang ang
kaya kong ibigay sa kanya. Saka isa pa, mahirap na yung pinagdadaanan ni Ynna. W
ag na nating dagdagan. Alam mo naman kung gano kahirap kapag nalaman ng mga tao
na may sakit ka na ganun.."

Ang alam ko, isa sa mga dahilan niya kaya ayaw niyang bumalik dati sa Pilipinas
ay dahil sa tatay niya.. Alam niya na ikakahiya siya ng tatay niya pag nalaman n
a may sakit siya, lalo na at tatakbo pa yung tatay niya sa pagka Senador. Ayaw n
iyang maging dahilan kung matatalo man ang tatay niya. Kung hindi lang namatay y
ung kapatid niya, dun na siya titira talaga at uuwi naman ako. Kung hindi lang t
alaga namatay yung kapatid niya, eh di sana hindi ganito kagulo yung mga bagay n
gayon.

"Oo na. Tss. Bakit ba ang bait mo? Kapatid ba talaga kita? Pambihira," sabi niya
sabay tayo, "pasok na nga ako. Ang dami ko pa palang aasikasuhin eh."

Lumabas na siya ng kwarto habang naiwan naman ako mag isa. Sana talaga maging ma
ayos na lahat. Nakakapagod na din kasi..

--------------------

Ynna's point of view

I went to their house to try to see Cyriel. I had to cancel the wedding last wee
k. Everything has been set, but still, Cyriel is way more important than the wed
ding. I don't care about the wedding as long as Cyriel is safe and sound.

I was waiting and sitting on their couch when i saw Clarence going out.I took th
e opportunity to visit Cyriel. I haven't got the chance to visit him because he
keeps on giving reasons.

I entered his room then he looked my way, "hey," i said.

He just stared at me.

I took the liberty and sat on the stool beside his bed, "i cancelled the wedding
," i casually said. I know from the bottom of my heart that that's what he wante
d from the very start. He didn't want to be with me, i know, so when he proposed
to me by impulse, i grabbed the chance.

He sighed, "Ynna--"

I cut him, "but it will still resume once you're fine. That's fine with you, rig
ht?" I asked him.

"Ynna, just please--"

I interrupted again, "i will still wear the same wedding gown, though. I love th
e texture and how it hugged my body. I look great in that, Cy," i said.

He grabbed me by the shoulders and looked into my eye, "look, Ynna. We both know
that it won't work. Please let me go," he pleaded.

I shook my head, pretending not to hear a thing, "how about Dana? Did she receiv
e the gown i sent her last week?"

He didn't answer.

"Well, anyways, she will look great in that. She's my bride's maid afterall," i
said while forcing a smile on my face.

*BLAG*

I was shocked when he threw the vase across the wall.

"C-cy," i stuttered.

"Ynna, just please tigilan mo na ako.. I will help you.. I'll be there for you a
s a friend.. Sasamahan kita sa lahat ng theraphy mo at check ups.. But please do
me a favor.. Tigilan mo na ako.. I love Dana.. You perfectly know that.." he sa
id.

I stood up and started to walk to the door. I wiped the tear that fell on my che
ek.

"The annullment paper will arrive next week," he said.

I pretended not to hear anything and continued walking.

-------------------Dana's Point of View

'Sht.'

I threw another paper in the trash bin. I've been trying my best to squeeze the
creative juices of my brain. I volunteered to help in the designs for the new co
llection of FHF to divert my attention. Yeah, i know i sound desperate. I just c
an't help but feel guilty.

The following day after the accident, i visited Andy. Good thing he was asleep.
I don't know what to do if he was awake. I don't know how to explain that i didn
't even take a glance at him yesterday, even though Cyriel's room is just next t
o his. I feel fvcking guilty i don't want to show my face to him.

After i saw him, i feel even guiltier. He has scratches and cast on his left leg
. He looked terrible unlike Cyriel. Fvck it, Dana! Andy's the one who was in the
emergancy room and not Cyriel! But still, i prioritized Cyriel so i really feel
guilty..

flashback..

"Dana?" I turned to see Nof, "can we talk?"

I nodded, "sure."

She went out first. I went near Andy and placed the fruits i bought for him on t
he side table. I caressed his face, 'get well soon, Andy.'

I went out to see Nof standing near the window where you can see the view of the

garden of the hospital, "took you long enough, Dana."

I didn't answer because of the tone of her voice. She's quite angry with me, and
i can't blame her. I am upset with myself as well. Do you think it is easy for
me? Let me tell you that it's not. Andy is my friend and it hurts to see him bei
ng like that because of me.. He didn't deserve that.. I don't deserve that kind
of love.. It's just too much..

"Ano'ng balak mo kay Andy?"

"We're done and you know it, Nof. Ilang beses ko nang sinabi sa kanya," i defend
ed myself.

"Alam ko, but the point is, it's not enough, Dana," she said. I felt myself stif
fened. She never call me Dana, she calls me DK, "tell him you mean it. Don't lea
d him on. You should've seen his face yesterday. It's priceless," she said.

"I'm sorry, okay," i said.

She smiled at me, "wag mo sa'kin yang sabihin, kay Andy. Pagka sorry mo, sabihin
mo na din na ayaw mo na, na wala na talaga. T@ngina, Dana. Hindi na uso ang bre
ak it to me gently, wag kang sadista! Sabihin mo ng isang bagsakan para tapos na
. Hindi yung nagmumukha siyang tanga."

I smiled back at her, "i will. Believe me, i plan to do that," i said, "but tell
me, do you like him?"

I honestly don't know if she likes Andy because i know that she still have feeli

ngs for Dave. But judging from what she was doing these past few days? Belive me
, it's not that hard to conclude that she has special feeling for Andy.

She laughed, "Hahaha! Fvck, DK! That was hillarious. Andy and me? That is mindfv
ck. Seriously, i don't like him in a romantic way. Brother figure pa siguro, oo.
I mean, yeah, i said that i like him before but that was just to test you. I re
alized that you like what you can't have so i did that. I thought that maybe you
'll feel threatened and realize that it's Andy all along pero hindi ata eh. Ewan
. Fail yung plan."

I don't know what to feel. I really thought she likes Andy..

"So, we're good?" I asked her.

She hugged me, "naman! Just fix things between you and Andy, DK. I just see myse
lf in Andy, kaya much as possible, ayokong maranasan niya yung naranasan ko kay
Dave dati. Being second best sucks."

I smiled at her, "i know, Nof. I'll talk to him soon."

present..

"Argh!"

I stood up. This is it. I'll talk to Andy to remove all these excess baggage of
guilty feelings inside me.

I went first to buy something for Andy. I've been buying things for him since i
didn't have the guts to visit him. After buying, i drove immediately to the hosp
tal to see Andy.

I took a glance to check if Andy's there, and he is. He's sitting on the edge of
his bed, trying to stand. I just watched him trying his best to stand and being
frustrated at the same time, and the mement he stumbled, i impulsively went nea
r him and helped him to stand.

"D-dana," he uttered.

I forced a smile, "sorry. Took me long enough to show my face," i said as i was
helping him to sit back on his bed,

"Wala yun, buti na lang nandito ka na. Kumain ka na ba? May pagkain dito pero ba
ka--"

I interrupted him, "i'm still full. Anyways, i came here to say something, Andy,
" i said then took a deep breath, "i'm sorry, Andy," i said.

He smiled, "wala 'yun. Nabisita mo na naman ako ngayon eh. Tsaka binibigyan mo n
aman ako nung books and cds kaya okay na yun, wag ka nang magsorry, " he said wi
th a forced smile on his face.

I shook my head, "i'm really sorry about that one but that's not what i meant..
I'm very sorry about us, Andy. I just can't do this anymore.." i explained to hi
m. Alam ko naman na mahihirapan akong sabihin sa kanya to pero when i am actuall
y in the situation, it's just thrice harder. And it's getting even harder seeing
that look on his face.

He forced a laugh and wipe the tear on his cheek, "sorry. Naiiyak lang kasi tala
ga ako," he said.

I can't stand to see him like this. He isn' the same Andy i knew.. Wala na yung
Andy na carefree and full of confidence.. I destroyed him.. I made him who he is
right now.. Weak.

"I'm sorry, Andy.." i said again. That's all i got to say. I am sorry. I am sorr
y for hurting him.

He's still crying, "stop telling you are sorry, Dana. Loving you is one of the g
reatest thing i ever did," he said.

No matter how hard i tried, i cannot stop my tears. We are now both crying.

He smiled, "thank you for everything, Dana."

I smiled back and hugged him.

"Thank you for this break up. Thank you for showing me that you're sad about thi
s. Kahit totoo man o hindi, thank you," he said then kissed the side of my head.

-----------------Andy's Point of View

Pagkatapos umalis ni Dana, napatingin na lang ako sa wall clock.

October 29, 12:08 a.m.

"Happy Birthday, Andy. Happy birthday," sabi ko sa sarili ko.

----------------Nof's Point of View

I know that it's wrong to listen to someone else's conversation. But i just can'
t help it, i unconsciously listened to Andy and Dana's conversation. And i feel
fvcking horrible for Andy.

The moment Dana left, i didn't come in first. I gave him first the time and spac
e he needs.

"Andy?" I said as i approached him. He wiped his tears as if he can hide the fac
t that he's been crying since Dana walked out the door.

"Hey," he said with a smile plastered on his face.

He made room for me and i sat on the side of his bed, "apples?" I asked him.

He nodded. I gave him apples and he started eating it but i can still see his li
ps trembling from his effort to refrain from crying.

"Idiot," i said, "umiyak ka kung gusto mo. Don't hold it in."

He smiled, "i'll look gay if i cry," he tried to joke.

'Yeah right. But you don't mind crying in front of DK,' i said to myself.

I smirked, "dami mong alam. What happened earlier? I think i saw DK coming out o
f this room?" I said as if i didn't eavesdrop.

"We broke up," he casually said.

"Then?"

"We broke up. Wala na. Tapos na," he replied.

I clapped my hands and said, "way to go, Guzman. Akala ko pa naman magpapakamata
y ka pag nawala si DK. Seeing you still alive and breathing is a good sign," i s
aid with sarcasm.

He smirked at me, "yeah right," then he patted my head, "take care of yourself,
Nof. Wag ka ng magselos kay Sara and Dave, wala ka ng magagawa. They're hooked w
ith each other. Si Kim tignan mo once in a while, gago pa naman si Clarence. Pat
i si Dana, look after her for me," he said.

I looked at him in daze, "what the hell, Guzman?? What was that? Your last testa
ment??"

He chuckled, "baliw. I'll be flying to States tomorrow."

"What?!!"

He spoke, "for recovery purposes? Pupuntahan namin yung kuya ko dun, haven't see
n him for so long. You should meet him," then he winked at me, "look, Nof. I'm d
oing this for my self, and for Dana and Cy as well. I'll be gone just for months
. Dun na din ako magrereview for the board exam and to forget as well. Bestfrien
d ko si Cyriel kaya ayoko na may sama kami ng loob, and as well as Dana. Birthda
y gift ko na din sa sarili ko. New beginning perhaps? Ewan ko."

I hugged him, "babalik ka ha?"

He chuckled, "oo nga. Para ka talagang bata."

I smacked his arms, "mas bata naman kasi talaga ako sa'yo! Gurang ka na kasi," i
teased.

"Ipapakilala talaga kita sa kuya ko. Andrew Guzman, remember that name, Nof," he
winked at me.

53rd Chapter

Dana's Point of View

"Another glass of martini, please," i asked for another order.

After the talk i had with Andy, i went straight to some random bar. I need to cl
ear my mind. I had plenty of drinks but i'm still sober. Fvck. Kaya nga ako pumu
nta dito para makalimot tapos pati yun hindi ko pa magawa?! I'm doomed. And mess
ed up.

After i finished drinking, i called our driver to drive me to my condo. I know m


yself that i can still drive but i won't take the risk. I won't take the risk o
f dying because of some petty reason: driving under the influence of alcohol. Wh
at a lame excuse. After all that i have been through, i will just die because of
that pathetic reason? The heck!

When i got to the condo, i went to the convinient store in our building first to
buy something to drink. Yeah, i know i'm a drunkard. I went straight to my unit
after that. I don't want to go home because i'm pretty sure mom will ask me hun
dreds of questions and i absolutely have no patience for that as of now. I will
drink 'till i can barely think straight, 'till i already lost track of time.

I can't understand myself.. I did the right thing, right? Tama naman na tinigil
ko na, di ba? I don't want to continue things na alam ko naman na walang patutun
guhan.. I care for Andy. We've been friends for almost three years..

I should've have done this before pero hindi ko ginawa kasi natatakot ako.. Nata
takot akong saktan si Andy. Pero nung ginawa ko na kanina? Fvck! I can't even lo
ok at him.. Everytime i see him cry, it hurts me. It kills me. I know Andy, hind

i siya umiiyak basta basta. Ako lang naman ang iniiyakan niya. I should be proud
but i can't.. Why would i be proud kung alam ko na sa tuwing umiiyak siya, ako
yung dahilan?!

I looked at the picture beside my bed, Cy and me, smiling.

"You're worth the fight, right? Hindi mo ako sasaktan, di ba Cy? Iniwan ko na si
Andy.. Sinaktan ko na siya.. Sana naman maging masaya na tayo.. Ang dami nang n
asaktan eh.."

--------------------

Nof's Point of View

"Nof?"

Ugh! Kainis talaga yang Guzman na yan! Aalis na nga siya bukas tapos hindi pa ni
ya sinasabi sa kanila. Ano ba gusto niya? Ako pa magsabi?? Ano ako? Spokesperson
nya?? Kapal lang, please!

"Nof!!!"

"What?" Kainis naman 'tong si Kim, nag iisip ako tapos bigla na lang akong itutu
lak.

She pouted, "kasi naman, ngayon na nga lang tayo ulit magbobonding tapos spaced

out ka pa. Kainis."

I rolled my eyes, "daming alam. Besides, ikaw nga jan ang busy lagi jan sa Clare
nce mo tapos ako pa sinisisi mo. Tss."

"Eeeh! Boyfriend ko naman kasi yun eh. Hehe," tapos kumuha na ulit siya ng black
pumps, "anyways, ano ba kasi yung iniisip mo? Share naman," sabi niya habang ti
na try yung pumps.

Sasabihin ko ba kay Kim? Ugh! Kainis talaga! Bakit ko ba kasi pino problema yun?
As if naman hindi babalik yun. Babalik daw siya di ba?? Tsaka uso pa ba ang des
pedida?

"Ah-eh, aalis kasi si Andy bukas.."

Tumingin tingin pa din siya sa mga sapatos sa rack, shoppaholic talaga 'to, "ooh
. San naman magpupunta yun? Bakasyon ba? Patapos na kaya yung sembreak.."

"Sa States," i said while fidgetting.

"Wow. 5 days na lang ah before-- right. Graduate na nga pala siya. Figures. Pero
akala ko ba sa review center siya sa labas ng St. Claire's magrereview?"

"Change of plans. Sa States na niya itutuloy," i said.

"But why??!"

I shrugged, "ganun eh. Besides, break na sila ni Dana."

"What?!!" sabi niya with wide eyes, "for real??"

I shook my head, "pwedeng wag masyadong obvious na masaya ka? Ang lungkot na nga
ng tao eh.. What a friend you are.."

She smiled sheepishly, "sorry naman! Daniel shipper kasi ako!"

Napailing na lang ako. Ayan na naman siya sa Daniel at Dandy niya. Ano ba sila D
ana, Andy, at Cyriel, artista? Bakit gumawa pa siya ng couple name? Weird bestfr
iend.

"So break na sila for real tapos aalis ngayon si Andy sa States. Sana naman maay
os na din yung sa annulment para okay na ang lahat," sabi niya ng tuloy tuloy.

Annulment? Sino ang kinasal? Kinasal ba si Andy at Dana??

"Annulment??"

Bigla namang naging uneasy si Kim, "ah-eh," sabi niya while shifting her weight
from one foot to the other.

"Kim?"

She inhaled, "ang daldal ko naman!! Ugh!"

"Spill," i said.

"Fine. Pero don't tell anybody ha?"

I nodded. Kinwento niya sakin yung about kay Cyriel at Ynna. Wow. I never though
t na kinasal na pala sila. At kung kasal na pala sila, ibig sabihin mistress si
DK? Great. Never did i imagine na papayag si DK sa ganung set up.. I look up to
DK so much and i'm disappointed. But who am i? She's all grown up, alam niya na
ang ginagawa niya. Andy is a great guy, sana lang worth it yung ginawa niyang pa
gbitaw kay Andy.

"How's the annulment process?" I asked Kim.

She shrugged, "wala akong alam. Si boyfie ang umaasikaso eh. But by the looks of
it, mejo malabo since ayaw talagang makipag cooperate ni Ynna and ayaw din ni C
yriel na ipasabi sa parents nila yung sakit ni Ynna. Haay. Ang complicated ng bu
hay nila.."

I smiled, "they chose that, Kim. Lahat ng nangyayari, pinili mo. And since yun a
ng pinili nila, they must live with the consequences."

Tumaas yung kilay niya, "uhhm, basta don't tell Andy, ha? Baka kasi magbago pa y
ung isip niya pag nalaman niya yung sa kasal ni Ynna at Cy.."

I smiled again, "don't worry, ako ang huling tao na magsasabi kay Andy niyan.."

"Huh?"

"It's all up to Dana now, Kim. It's her call. Hindi ko sasabihin yun kay Andy be
cause i don't want him to go around again chasing Dana," i said.

She looked at me with curious eyes, "ikaw ha, do you like Andy??"

I rolled my eyes, "pati ba naman ikaw?? Wala nga akong gusto dun. Please lang, K
im. We're bestfriends and you know me, Andy's not my type of guy."

"Fine, fine," sabi niya.

After shopping, we called others and went to Andy's house para sa 'rushed' sendoff party kay Andy. Ugh! Guzman talaga na yan oh!

--------------------

Ynna's Point of View

I watched the annulment paper being burned into ashes.

"I'm sorry, Cy.. I just can't let you go.. I'm sorry.."

I went to the doctor yesterday for my check up. The medicines aren't working any
more, and the virus in my blood just keeps on spreading in my system. The painki
llers don't help me at all.. It hurts..

"Seorita Ynna?" I turned around to the maid who called me, "may naghahanap po sa i
nyo.."

"Sino daw?"

"Clarence Perez daw po.."

I smiled to myself, "sabihin mo bababa na ako.."

Ganun na ba ako ka ayaw makita ni Cyriel para papuntahin niya pa yung kuya niya
dito? Sabagay, who would want to see me? I look so thin and pale.. and i have ma
ny bruises. I don't look like Ynna Henares anymore.. I am not Ynna Henares. The
Ynna i knew isn't like this. The Ynna i knew is confident and beautiful, and me?
I already lost that. I am a good for nothing, dying person.

I went down and saw Clarence standing near the door, he turned around and saw me
, "do you have a minute?"

I nodded.

We went to the garden to talk. Good thing my parents isn't around. They are both
busy for Dad's campaign for Senatorial elections.

"What brings you here?" I straight-forwardly asked. I don't know Clarence that m
uch. He won't talk to me and i don't have the guts to talk to him because of the
smug look he always wears.

"Annulment," he said.

I smiled at him, "i burned it."

He smirked.

"Let's stop fooling around, Clarence. I won't sign the annulment paper kahit ano
pa ang gawin niyo. Ang dami ko ng ginawa to get this far, sa tingin mo basta ba
sta ko na lang itatapon yung pinaghirapan ko?"

He took a deep breath, "i don't want to this but you leave me with no choice.."

I can feel my palms getting sweaty. Clarence isn't like Cy.. When he wants somet
hing, he'll get it by hook or by crook.. whatever means he must use.

"Black propaganda for your father. Ayaw mo naman siguro ng negative publicity pa
ra sa tatay mo?"

I smiled at him, "you won't do that."

"What makes you think i can't do that?"

I said, "magagalit sa'yo si Cyriel pag ginawa mo yun, Clarence. And believe me,
you don't want that. You're really not in good terms with Cyriel; lately lang ka
yo naging close ulit. Lahat ng babaeng gusto niyang ligawan sa'yo napupunta, wel
l, Dana is the only exception since Kim's your girlfriend."

He shook his head, "seems like i've underestimated you, Henares. But like i've s
aid, i can do that."

"You won't. Cyriel won't allow you," i calmly said.

He stood up, "we'll see."

--------------------

Andy's Point of View

Dadalin ko pa ba yung mga damit ko? Psh. Bumili na lang kaya ako dun? Nyeta nama
n! Bakit ba kasi bukas na agad yung alis ko?? Minsan talaga hindi ko ginagamit y
ung utak ko eh. Tsaka magdadala pa ba ako ng baggage eh ni hindi nga ako makalak
ad ng maayos. Psh.

May kumatok sa pinto, "sir, nanjan po yung mga kaibigan niyo sa baba."

Tumango na lang ako tsaka tinignan yung maletang nakabukas sa kama ko.

'Tss. Bagong status, bagong buhay, bagong graduate. Bibili na lang din ako ng da
mit dun para bago. Sayang naman yung kinikita ng tatay ko kung si kuya Andrew la
ng ang makikinabang.'

Bumaba ng dahan dahan ako sa first floor ng makita ko si Dave, Sara, Kim, Nof, a
t si Cyriel?

Umakyat si Dave at tinulungan akong bumaba.

"Uh, bakit kayo nandito?"

Sa loob loob ko, nagdadasal ako na sana hindi sinabi nung baboy na yun sa kanila
na aalis ako. Tss. Ayoko ng drama. Sawang sawa na ako. Tsaka babalik naman ako
bago mag April? May board exam pa ako eh.

Tinignan ko si Nof, "despedida party?"

Bumuntong hininga ako, "seriously, wag na. Parang tanga lang."

Lumapit sa'kin si Dave, "talagang wala kang balak sabihin samin na aalis ka?"

Napakamot na lang ako sa batok, "para kang bakla, pare. States lang yun eh."

"Tss. States lang daw," side comment ni Nof.

"Madaldal na baboy," sabi ko.

"Para walang gulo, tutulungan ka na lang namin mag empake?"

Bumuntong hininga na lang ako, "oo na."

Nauna na sialng umakyat sa kwarto ko para ayusin yung gamit ko. Alam na siguro n
i Dave yung mga kailangan kong dalin since palagi naman siyang bumabyahe.

"Bakit ka aalis?" Biglang sabi ni Cyriel nung makaalis na sila Dave.

"Bitter ako sa'yo eh," sabi ko ng pabiro. Ayoko na kasing mag away kami. Oo, mah
al ko si Dana, mahal na mahal, pero mahalaga din sa'kin yung pagkakaibigan namin
ni Cyriel. Nawala na sa'kin si Dana, hindi na ko papayag na pati yung pinagsama
han at pagsasamahan pa namin ay mawala.

Biglang sumeryoso yung mukha niya, "kung dahil 'to kay Dana, wag ka --"

Hindi ko siya pinatuloy magsalita, "pare, suko na ako kay Dana. Totoo na 'to."

"Pero bakit ka pa din aalis?"

"Uh, dun ako magrereview? Tsaka siguro sasamahan ko na dun si kuya. Dun din kasi
titira si mama hanggang Christmas eh," sabi ko sa kanya. Pero parang hindi pa d
in siya naniniwala, "oo na. Magmomove on ako dun. Pare naman, hindi ako masokist
a. Sawang sawa na din akong saktan yung sarili ko. Baka siguro dun makalimutan k
o si Dana? Hay ewan. Basta, dun muna ako."

Seryoso pa din yung mukha niya, "galit ka sa'kin?"

Umismid ako, "siguro?"

Sinabi ko na yung totoo. Siguro kahit naman sabihin kong hindi, mahahalata niya
din. Hindi na kami gaya nung dati. Iba na talaga. Oo, ayos kaming nag uusap ngay
on pero mapapansin mo talaga na may nagbago.

Tinuloy ko yung sinasabi ko, "pero sabi nga nila, 'time heals almost all wounds.
.' Siguro kasama na dun sa almost na yun yung pinagsamahan natin," ngumiti ako,
"ang dami kong sinasabi. Akyat na tayo?"

"Babalik ka?"

Tumango ako, "oo nga. Para kayong bading, kung namimiss niyo yung ka gwapuhan ko
, dalawin niyo ko dun. Para namang wala kayong pambili ng ticket. Tss."

Ngumiti siya, "hihintayin ka namin."

"Malamang oo! Pag ako kinalimutan niyo.. saka pare, alagaan mo si Dana, ha?"

Ngumiti siya, "oo naman."

Tapos nun, tinulungan niya akong umakyat.

Nawala man si Dana, nandito pa naman si Cyriel at mga kaibigan ko. Kaya ko 'to.

--------------------

Nof's Point of View

Nauna na kaming umakyat. Tss. Walang kwentang host talaga yang si Guzman, pabaya
an daw ba kami sa kwarto niya?? Paano kung may cleptomaniac pala sa'min? Eh di
nawalan siya ng gamit ng wala sa oras??

"OMG!! Who's this hottie?"

Napatingin kami nila Sara kay Kim, pinapakailaman niya kasi yung photoalbums ni
Andy.

Lumapit si Dave sa kanya, "uh, si Andrew, kuya ni Andy."

"Hmp. Sayang naman at may boyfriend na ako. He's a major hottie!!"

Nyeta naman. Nakaka curious yang Andrew Guzman na yan!!

"Kaibigan ni Clarence yan, Kim. Wala kang pag asa," sabi ni Dave.

Dumila naman si Kim, "as if. Lahat ng lalaking gusto ko, nakukuha ko. Proven and
tested!!"

Nagpatuloy lang kami sa pag aayos ng gamit niya. Dadalhin ba niya lahat ng gamit
niya? Eh may bahay naman yata sila dun. Besides, hindi niya din kailangan ng da
mit. Bumili na lang siya dun.

"Uh, hindi ko ma contact si Dana.." sabi ni Sara.

Kanina pa namin siya tinatawagan since wala siya sa bahay nila. Well, kung ako a
ng tatanungin, mas gusto ko na nandito siya para makita niyang aalis si Andy. Sa
dista ako, i know. Gusto kong makitang nasasaktan si DK.. or at least makonsensy
a man lang.

I shrugged, "it's fine. Maybe she doesn't want to be here anyways," i said.

Sumama naman yung tingin ni Sara.

Magsasalita sana ako nung dumating sila Andy, "kain tayo? Umorder kami ng pizza,
" sabi niya ng nakangiti habang nakaakbay kay Cyriel para makatayo since ayaw ni
yang gamitin yung clutch niya.

Hinga, Nof. Kung si Cyriel at Andy nagkakaintindihan, iintindihin ko na lang din


si Sara at DK.

Dana's Point of View

'Shit,' i muttered to myself. My head hurts like hell!

Where the hell am i?

Tumingin ako sa paligid ko only to find out na nandito pala ako sa condo ko. Nic
e. It's been a year simula nung huli kong punta dito. I moved out simula nung um
alis si Cyriel papuntang States. I went back home because i don't think i can li
ve alone during those times. I was hurt, no, that's a shitty understatement, i w
as devastated. Devastated beyond repair.

I originally thought na wala na akong pag asa. I felt like a robot. I was doing
the things i need to do. I need to study for my parents, and i bully Jamie becau
se that's the only way i found consolation for what her sister did to me. Yeah,
i've been a good girl gone bad. I already accepted that. Sanay na ako eh. What d
id i do for these to happen to me? Laging kong tanong sa sarili ko dati. Ganun n
a ba kasamang maging masaya? Ang gusto ko lang naman ay sumaya pero parang ang h
irap gawin. What the hell is wrong with me para lagi na lang akong lokohin? At f
irst, si Jarred, then si Andy, tapos ngayon si Cyriel din? God! Am i not that wo
rthy to be loved or is it that i am just too damn naive because i am always bein

g played at?

I smiled to myself after reminiscing, 'i've really come too far.'

I arranged myself first then i went to the nearest convinience store to buy aspi
rin then i went to a cafe and ordered three shot espresso, just what i needed.

I sat there for quite some time. Medyo masama pa din yung pakiramdam ko kaya nan
dun muna ako. I don't want to hear my mom's sermon pag nakita niya yung itsura k
o. My eyes look blood shot. I look like i cried the whole night. Yeah, i think i
kinda did.

I feel horrible. Fcking horrible!

News flash: I just broke up with Andy during his birthday. During his birthday.
And i just realized it after i said the word i can't do this anymore.

Looks like i really lived up to my title, i really am a bad girl.

I checked my phone after drinking my coffee.

20 messages.
30 missed calls.

I immediately opened the messages. Most of it came from Sara.

From: BestySara
Where are you, Dana???? Aalis na si Andy ngayon papuntang States!! Hindi ka man
lang ba magpapakita??

'Fck," i almost dropped my phone.

I immediately hailed a cab pagkatapos kong mabasa yung mga texts nila. Damn, Dan
a! Bakit naman kasi kagabi mo pa napiling uminom?? Of all the dates, bakit Octob
er 29 pa?! Fck!

Pagdating ko sa kanila, nakita ko agad yung guards nila. I went out and approach
ed them, "uhm, si Andy po?"

They knew me since i frequently came here for almost everyday for more than a mo
nth. Nakakatuwang isipin na tumagal din pala kami ni Andy ng ganung katagal. Per
o kung iisipin? Sandali lang. A month? Not enough for all the things we've been
through. It felt like a year.

"Ay naku, ma'am Dana, nakaalis na po kagabi. Dun po daw siya hanggang April. Ewa
n ko lang po kung uuwi siya ng pasko..," i didn't respond. No, i cannot speak.

"Ma'am Dana? Hindi niyo po ba alam?"

I just said thanks and went back inside the cab.

"District 5," i said to the driver.

I cannot process what i just heared. Si Andy. States. April. I-i just can't.. I
can't even understand myself!

When i arrived at District 5, i immediately ordered absinthe. Fck. I just drank


yesternight then here i am again, drinking myslef to death early in the morning.

------------------Nof's Point of View

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

Nagstretching muna ako. Nakakapagod naman kasi yung ginawa namin kagabi. Since b
irthday slash despedida party ni Andy kagabi, nag movie marathon kami at kumain
ng pizza. Define pizza! 10 boxes para sa aming 6?? Hayop kasi yang Guzman na yan
, libre na niya daw hanggang April. Kuripot! Birthday na birthday eh. Tss.

Nag ayos nga din kami ng gamit niya, at since pilay naman siya (yeah, tinutukso
namin siya ni Kim ng pilay. Hahaha!) hindi na masyadong mabigat yung hand carry
niya. Ipapaship na lang yung iba niyang gamit. Sus! Para naman kasing hindi na s
iya babalik. Daming alam eh!!

After kong magbreakfast, lumabas na ako para pumunta ng school. Enrollment again

. Second semester na. Next year, graduating na kami. Ang bilis lang.

Sumakay na ako sa sasakyan ko since magkikita na lang kami ni Kim dun sa St. Cla
ire's para parehas ulit kami ng schedule. Si DK? Bahala siya. I don't care as of
now. Honestly. Hindi pa din ako maka move on sa nalaman ko na mas pinili niyang
maging kabit kaysa kay Andy. Pathetic choice. But then again, who am i to judge
eh ni hindi ko nga alam kung ano ang pinagdaanan nila ni Cyriel. And i have no
intentions of knowing. I support Andy at kuntento na ako na yun ang alam ko.

Papunta na sana ako ng St. Claire's ng parang makita ko si DK sa loob ng taxi ta


pos lumiko papasok sa subdivision nila Andy. Seriously? Nasan siya kagabi?? Halo
s hindi na maipinta yung mukha ni Andy tapos may angst pa siyang pumunta sa baha
y nila. Psh.

Instead of going straight to St. Claire's, i followed here. District 5. Nice cho
ice, DK. Looks like we're going to have a drunken talk.

------------------Dana's Point of View

"Where were you?" napatingin ako sa gilid ko only to see Nof sitting on the stoo
l beside me.

"Condo," i replied shortly. I don't want to argue with her right now. I have too
much on my plate. Ynna, Cyriel, then Andy. I cannot handle another issue with h
er. It's just too much.

She sipped the martini she ordered, "hmm, i see. Do you know the date yesterday?
"

"October 29," i answered.

"Then?"

Good Lord, please help me help myself. She's my friend even if she's bitching wi
th me right now. I don't want to lose her. I cannot afford to lose someone again
.

I didn't answer, "grabe, DK. You've been friends for how long? 2 years? Tapos hi
ndi mo man lang alam na birthday niya kagabi. A simple happy birthday would do,"
she said.

I still didn't respond.

"Sabagay, you must thought that a happy birthday wouldn't do so you opted for a
better idea, breaking up with him on his birthday. Epic," she said.

I cannot contain myself anymore. She's been mocking me!!

I looked at her and slapped her, "Nof Salvador, listen to me! You are not me. Yo
u have no fcking idea how fcked up my life is. Ano ba talagang gusto mo? Sabi mo
makipagbreak na ako kay Andy, and i did! Then ngayon pupunta ka dito and tell m
e na ang sama sama kong tao? Give me a break, please! Tao lang din ako. Hindi ba
pwedeng dahilan yun??"

She looked at me as well then smiled, "i don't deserve that slap," she said then
she slapped me, "we're quits."

Buti na lang wala pang masyadong tao sa bar kaya hindi kami nakakaagaw ng eksena
.

"I told you to break up with him.. but not on his birthday. October 28 or 30. I
don't fcking care. Bakit 29?? You've been toying around since when? Since Septem
ber? Halos isang buwan yun, Dana Kathryn Ferrer! Sa loob ng 30 days na yun, tala
gang Octiber 29 pa yung napili mo? Come on, that's bullsht! I knew you're a bitc
h but hell.."

I tried to hold back my tears, i don't know why i'm crying, "bakit ka ba nagagal
it sa'kin? Kasalanan ko ba? Sorry na! Hindi na ba pwedeng magsorry? Look, Nof, t
ao lang din ako. Nagkakamali. My life is so messed up. Sorry kung nakipagbreak a
ko sa birthday niya, sorry kung hindi ko naalala na birthday niya. Sorry!!"

She didn't answer. Nakatingin lang siya sa'kin while i was crying.

"What? Hindi mo ko sisigawan? Come on, shout at me! Masama ako, di ba? Lagi ko l
ang sinasaktan si Andy, di ba? Selfish ako, di ba? Fck! Oo na! Ako na lahat yun!
"

I got my things and stood up.

"Sorry," she whispered.

I looked back at her, "you thought i'm a bitch? Well then, news flash: I'm a bit
ch. Sorry for that."

------------------Nof's Point of View

"bakit ka ba nagagalit sa'kin? Kasalanan ko ba? Sorry na! Hindi na ba pwedeng ma


gsorry? Look, Nof, tao lang din ako. Nagkakamali. My life is so messed up. Sorry
kung nakipagbreak ako sa birthday niya, sorry kung hindi ko naalala na birthday
niya. Sorry!!"

I was left alone. Sht, Nof! You just ruined everything! My stupid impulses!

I honestly don't know what to say to DK. I was just dumbfounded. I thought she d
idn't care that's why i kind of hated her.. But heck!

I followed DK outside and saw her hail a cab. She's still crying.

'Stupid mouth!!!'

-------------------Cyriel's Point of View

"Ginagawa mo?"

Nandito ako sa office ni Clarence sa bahay. Yeah, may office siya sa bahay. Work
aholic di lang halata.

"Business stuffs, wag ka ngang magulo," he said then pinagpatuloy lang niya yung
pagbabasa.

I sat on the chair adjacent to him. Kinuha ko yung ilang files tapos sinubukan k
ong basahin. In less than 2 years, tutulungan ko na din si Clarence magmanage ng
business namin. Good thing na siya ang tagapagmana talaga. I don't want to foll
ow their footsteps. I want to become an engineer, and Dana's husband. I have no
intentions of being the next CEO. But i still need to work there. Good thing ako
ang magiging head ng paggawa ng infrastructures and some matters. I need to wor
k for our future. Though my trust fund would be enough, mas maganda pa din na en
sured ang future ni Dana with me.

After scanning through some files, i saw something.

"Ano 'to?" I scowled at him.

"Ha?"

I crumpled the paper on my hands. Kumuha pa siya ng private investigator para ka


y Ynna at sa campaign ng tatay nito, "i thought we're clear on this, Clarence?!"

"Whoa, chill lang, Cyriel," sabi niya sa'kin.

"Sabi ko na nga na wag mong pakielamanan si Ynna. Just please don't. Annulment l
ang ang hinihingi ko, Clarence. Don't intrude with other things," i said. No, i
pleaded. I know my brother. Gagawin niya pag gusto niya that is why ayokong humi
ngi ng tulong sa kanya nung una. He'll destroy Ynna. That is just his nature, la
hat ng kumakalaban sa kanya, natatalo.

He sighed, "you're too good for your sake, lil bro."

"Alam ko," i replied.

"Ayaw mong ipasabi na may sakit siya, di ba?"

I nodded.

"Kalimutan mo na din yung annulment," sabi niya sabay tayo at labas ng office.

------------------Clarence's Point of View

Psh.

Lintek na payatot na yan. Tama nga siya sa sinabi niya kay Cyriel. Nyeta!

Lumabas muna ako at baka magkasubukan pa kami ni Cyriel. Mahirap na.

Nagsigarilyo muna ako. Occasional smoker lang naman.

Tignan lang natin, Henares. Game on.

--------------------Andy's Point of View

Jetlagged. Ang sakit sa ulo. Natulog muna ako pagdating na pagdating ko sa Miami
. Actually, sa California talaga dapat ang punta ko dahil andun sila kuya at mom
pero nagpa change flight ako at dito pumunta since may rest house naman kami di
to.

Ang ganda ng view. Iba din ang time zone. Kakapanibago. Pero it's just what i ne
eded. A new start.

Binuksan ko yung laptop ko para sana magreview. Kailangan kong magtop sa board e
xam! I need to redeem myself!

Napatigil ako sa nakita ko. Picture nga pala namin ni Dana yung desktop backgrou
nd ko.

I smiled to myself, "chicks talaga si Amanda Seyfried."

Oo, pinalitan ko na yung background. First step to moving on? Acceptance.

55th Chapter

A week after.

Dana's Point of View

Inhale. Exhale.

I'm here at Nof's house. Agenda? To make amends. I know i've been melodramatic l
ast week. Last week was.. hell. It probably could be considered as one of the wo
rst weeks of my life. Seriously. It was just a week. Seven days but it friggin'
felt like a month.

Just as i was about to walk towards their gate, i saw Nof. She went out to jog,
apparently.

"Uh, hi?" I sheepishly said. Come on, she slapped me last week pero ako pa yung
nahihiya sa kanya! Something must be really wrong about me!

She seemed taken aback by my greeting because her jaw almost fell, "uh, DK.."

I again took a deep breath, gathering all my guts, "look, Nof. I'm here to say s
orry," i said, "it's been a week and.." i hesitated to continue. It's hard to ad
mit that i kinda missed her, "i miss you. The whole cold war really sucks. We be
long to the same group but we avoid each other.. so yeah.. can we just go back t
o normal? I mean, it's been a week. Long excruciating week. Siguro naman, you al
ready forgave me for what i did? I already explained, right?" I asked, taking my
chances.

Smile slowly crossed her face, "thought you'd never ask," then she pulled me for
a hug, "i was about to go to your house. Really. Sorry, DK. Just my stupid, imp
ulsive self. Sorry," she said.

I smiled, "i hope you don't mind pero.. take a bath, will you? Kaka jog mo lang
eh."

"Yeah right," she rolled her eyes.

We went inside her house. Apparently, may party mamaya sa school. Sem starter st
uffs. Remember last sem? Yung carnival. Yeah. Jamie stuffs.. I can't believe it
was just a sem. So many things had happened in a very short span of time! Jamie
died, Ynna has HIV, Andy left.. and i became a mistress. Yeah. It was damn hard
to admit at first but i can't change the fact that i am just like that. A mistr
ess. Never once in my life i thought i'll become one. But who can ever tell, rig
ht? Because here i am, a living proof.

Since there's a party, a date is kinda required. Not required by the school but
required by the society. And since Cyriel is going with Ynna, i'll go solo. I wa
s really upset at first. Really upset. But then, ano bang magagawa ko kung maiin
is ako? Wala naman di ba? Will it change the fact na hindi ako ang priority ni C
yriel? Hindi naman di ba? I'm already 19, turning 20 this December. I'm old enou
gh to be rational over things.

"You ready?" tanong ni Nof after taking a bath.

I nodded, "Kila Kim daw tayo. She said her make up artists will come this aftern
oon. Dun na lang din daw tayo."

She nodded, "okay. Kunin ko lang yung dress ko."

Umakyat ulit siya sa kwarto niya. I don't know if i'm just selfish or what pero
i'm kind of happy na single si Nof. I mean, yeah, i have Cyriel but he's not exc
lusive. In some ways, i feel lonely. Kim is with Clarence and Sara is with Dave,
good thing Nof is single so i won't feel left alone.

"Ready to go?" I nodded then we drove to Kim's.

------------------Andy's Point of View

Boring.

Good thing about Miami? The beaches. Bad thing about it? Pilay ako!!

Nandito lang ako sa loob ng resthouse. Konti na lang talaga, makakabisado ko na


yung reviewer ko. Isang linggo ko na talaga siyang binabasa. Nakaka bwisit din p
ala. I still have five months to review pero isang linggo pa lang, tinatamad na

ako. Good to go, Guzman. Magiging top notcher ka kasi talaga sa lagay na 'yan!

Lumabas ako sa balcony. Apparently, over looking sa beach yung resthouse namin.
Magkano kaya ang bili nila dito? Oh well, paki ko ba? Hahaha!

"Chicks," sabi ko. Eto talaga ang maganda sa Miami, girls in bikinis.

Nakita ko na ba si Dana na naka bikini?

Erase. Erase.

Walang Dana ngayong bakasyon.

Amanda Seyfried. Anne Curtis. Anne Hathaway. Dana Ferr--

Wala ka ng pag asa, Andy. (-_-)

Papasok na sana ako sa loob ng may tumama sa akin, "sorry!" Narinig kong may sum
igaw.

Napatingin ako. Ang lakas naman pumalo nun, umabot pa dito.

Hinagis ko pabalik yung bola ng volleyball, "no problem."

Bumalik na lang ako sa sala tapos nanood ng movies. Tangna. Ang boring talaga di
to!! Wala man lang ako makausap. Tch. Bumili kaya ako ng aso? Tangna, malala na
ko. Kahit aso papatulan ko na, may makausap lang.

*door bell*

'Sht naman.'

Naglakad ako papunta sa pinto. Ang hirap pa din maglakad. Hindi ko kasi ginagami
t yung crutches para mas mapadali yung recovery. Come on! Kailangan ko ng makala
kad! Second step to moving on? Explore your choices. Araw araw na makakita ng ba
baeng naka bikini? Tangna, dude! Kailangan ko ng makalakad as soon as possible!!

"Uhm, hello?" sabi nung babae sa harap ko. Brunette.

Tinignan ko lang siya. Delikado. Kamukha na naman ni Dana. Bakit parang lahat ng
babae nagiging kamukha ni Dana??

"Just want to say sorry for what happened--" hindi ko na siya pinatapos kasi pin
agsaraduhan ko siya ng pinto. Right on her face. I had enough. Delikado yung mga
ganung mukha.

Bumalik na lang ako sa sala at kumuha ng ice cream sa fridge. Kayo na lang ang k
asama ko habang hindi pa ako nakakalakad.. Tinignan ko din yung supplies ko, kai

langan ko na din mag grocery. Langya! Hirap mabuhay mag isa.

Natapos yung buong araw na wala akong ginagawa. Walangyang buhay 'to oh!! Naghah
anap ako ng katahimikan nung nasa Pilipinas ako pero nung nandito ako, nakakagag
o yung katahimikan!

Nagpadeliver na lang ako ng pizza nung gabi. Tangna. Ang boring ng buhay ko. Ang
boring ng araw ko. Konti na ang, magiging boring na din ako.

-kinabukasan-

"Morning," sabi ko. Tumawag si mom sa phone, "yeah. Ayos lang ako.. Hah?.. Yup,
maggrocery ako mamaya.. Alright.. Punta ko jan next week, okay na siguro yung pa
a ko by that time?.. I'll see.. Bye, mom."

Tumawag na naman siya. Paranoid mom. Ever since nung sinabi ko sa kanya last wee
k na break na kami ni Dana (ang hirap pa ding sabihin) akala niya suicidal ako.
Para akong nasa suicidal watch. Honestly, ganun pa ako naging ka dependent kay D
ana? Na sobrang hindi ko kakayanin na mawala siya to the point na mag suicide ak
o?? Halos lumipad siya papunta dito nung sinabi ko sa kanya. Tch. Parang bata pa
ako. 21 na kaya ako. (._.) Ang tanda ko na. Hahaha!

Lumabas ako at sumakay sa sasakyan, "here goes nothing."

Nagagalaw ko naman yung paa ko kaya sa tingin ko wala namang problema kung magdd
rive ako. Kaysa naman sa mamatay ako sa gutom, magddrive na lang ako papunta sa
Wal-Mart. Tch.

Tangna!! Kaya ko pa lang magdrive! Hahaha! Mukha akong tanga dito sa harap ng Wa
l-Mart.

Pumasok ako sa loob at nagsimula ng maggrocery. Siguro pang isang buwan na yung
bibilin ko. Ayoko ng naggrocery. Parang bading lang eh. Psh.

Puro canned goods, junk foods, soda, frozen pizza, beer lang yung binili ko. Ano
'ng magagawa ko? Living like a bachelor ako ngayon. Hindi ako magluluto. Asa. Pa
ra san pa ang takeouts at microwave? Haha! Iikot nga din ako mamaya para kumuha
ng menus ng mga may takeout para hassle free na ako.

Nung papalabas na ako, "tanga!!" nasabi ko na lang sa sarili ko.

Hayop talaga!! Pano ko pupulutin yung mga canned goods na gumulong eh may cast p
a yung paa ko?? Mamaya ako pa yung gumulong jan eh!! Langya talaga! Bakit ba kas
i paper bags yung gamit dito? Bwisit!!

Nilagay ko muna sa trunk ng sasakyan yung ibang paper bags tapos dahan dahan ako
ng naglakad para pulutin yung mga canned goods.

"Looks like we meet again, Mr. Grumpy?" napatingin ako sa nagsalita.

'Tangna,' Nabitawan ko yung hawak ko. Hanggang sa Miami ba naman, susundan ako n
i Dana??

Hindi ko na pinulot yung ibang nalaglag tangna wag ng pansinin yun! Aalis na ko
dito! Delikado na naman ako!!

------------------Kim's Point of View

"Boyfie?" I asked boyfie. Hmp! Hindi na naman niya ako pinapansin!!

He told me last week yung kay Cyriel. I honestly can't understand him!! He loves
DK but he proritizes Ynna. What's the matter with him?? Naaawa na ako minsan ka
y DK. She still feels guilty about sa biglaang pag alis ni Andy tapos hindi pa s
ila in good terms ni Nof tapos biglang maddisappoint siya na hindi siya sasamaha
n ni Cyriel sa Sem starter? It really sucks to be her. Really.

Niyakap ko si boyfie, "hindi mo na talaga itutuloy yung sa annulment?"

He nodded, "bahala siya. Tss. Basta hindi muna ngayon. Payatot talaga 'yun."

Naiinis pa rin pala siya kay Ynna. Hahaha! First time kong makitang naiinis si b
oyfie. Lagi yang composed eh, pero nung nakausap niya si Ynna, lagi siyang agit.
Ano kaya pinag usapan nilang dalawa?

He also told me na yung sakit ni Ynna yung pinakamagandang gawing reason para ma
pabilis yung annulment. Medyo mahina daw kasi na ground yung pinilit lang siya.
Eh since ayaw pumayag ni Cyriel, nainis na lang si boyfie. I can totally underst
and him naman. Nakaka frustrate kasi siya talaga minsan. Nag give way na nga si
Andy tapos parang nasasayang lang..

I kissed him, "gotta go. Sem starter later," i said then went out of his office.

I went back to our house kasi nandun si DK. She told me last time na makikipag a
yos na siya kay Nof, and Nof also told me na gusto na niyang magsorry! Naghihint
ayan lang pala sila. Pero thank God. It was friggin' awkward last week!! Hindi s
ila nagpapansinan and all!! It almost drove me insane!

Nandun na sila sa sofa nung pagdating ko, "ready to play dress up game?"

"Hell yeah."

--------------------Ynna's Point of View

"Do i look fine, mom?" I asked for the nth time.

"You look pretty, honey. Quit worrying, alright?" She said.

I can't help but feel worried. I know i don't look fine. The disease's starting
to make me look horrible. The bruises on my arms were already very visible so i
opted to wear dress with cardigan on top to cover those.

When the clock striked 7, i received a text.

From: Cyriel
Can't pick you up. See you there.

What did i tell you, Ynna? Don't get your hopes up.

-------------------Dana's Point of View

"We're all set?" asked Kim.

We nodded. We look great. Really.

"Let's go?"

We were about to enter in her car when i remembered something, "fudge. I forgot
my id."

"What?! Of all things, DK.."

We have this no id, no entry policy in St. Claire's. You really can't enter with
out your id. Swear.

"Daan muna tayo sa bahay niyo?" Nof offered.

I declined, "nope. You go there first. Susunod na lang ako," i said.

"You sure?"

I nodded, "yup. I'll be the one in red."

They went first to the party while i went home to get my id. Nung malapit na ako
sa gate namin, i saw Cyriel. In tux. He looked.. amazing.

"What are you doing--" he didn't let me finish because he hugged me.

"Sorry for disappointing you again and again, Dana.." he whispered in my ears.

"What are you talking about?" i asked.

"Yung dito sa party. I'm sorry, Dan. I really want to take you there pero Ynna b
egged me. I'm sorry.." he said and kissed my temple.

I looked into his eyes, "wala lang yun, Cy. I can totally understand. She's sick

so she's the priority. Okay lang talaga."

He shook his head, "you don't understand, Dana. She's not my priority. Ikaw lang
. It's always you.. May sakit lang talaga siya kaya.. ganito. Look, i'm really,
really sorry."

I smiled, "i already gave Andy up for us, Cy. What made you think na susuko ako
just because of this party?"

I told him to reassure him that i'm fine, but instead of seeing him smile, i saw
a hint of sadness on his face..

Dana's Point of View

Tch. Boring na Sem starter. Wala man lang hard drinks or whatsoever. Really, St.
Claire's?? This is all you got? Ano kami, high schoolers??

I went to the powder room first. Hindi ko pa din nakikita sila Nof, probably bec
ause ang daming tao dito sa venue. Tch. Crowded na talaga sa school. I need to g
raduate already. Nakaka stress ang mga tao. Really. If you know what i mean.

Papalabas na sana ako ng powder room ng makita ko ang best friend ko, si Ynna. P
lease feel the overflowing sarcasm, guys. Best friend, taong ka-share mo sa halo
s lahat ng bagay. And since gustung gusto ni Ynna na maki- share sa buhay ko, eh
di siya na ang best friend ko. Tch.

"Enjoying the party?" i asked.

She nodded.

"Walang nasty comebacks?? Come on! You're boring me," i retorted.

"Sorry to bore you then, Dana. I'm just too happy tonight," she said.

"*smirk* Sure thing. Thank me though, mahilig akong tumulong sa charity chases."

She faced me, "stop the sarcasm, Dana. You can never beat me at that," she said
and she started to walk, "ang just so you know, aminin mo man o hindi, ako pa di
n ang pipiliin ni Cyriel. First things first, Dana. And i am the priority. Suck
it up.. again."

Fck! Fck! Fck!

Hingang malalim, Dana! Don't be affected by that btch! She's not the priority, a

lright?! Kakasabi lang sa'yo ni Cyriel kanina na ikaw ang pririty niya! She just
begged! She fckin' begged Cyriel para samahan siya dito. Yeah. It just happened
na masyadong mabait si Cy kaya ganito ang nangyari.

Tumingin ako sa salamin then i smiled, "i'm the one he loves. She can't compete.
She never can."

Lumabas ako sa powder room. I tried to find Kim's table. Shoot. It took me 10 lo
ng minutes bago ko sila mahanap. Seriously, ang daming tao! I am starting to fee
l suffocated!

"San ka galing?" Kim asked.

I told her that i went to the powder room. I didn't tell them about the little i
ncident. I won't let her ruin my night. Tch. Skinny btch.

"What's up? Bakit may mga tao sa taas?" i asked. Para kasing nagkakagulo yung mg
a tao, girls specifically. Kaya hindi din ako makadaan kanina kasi parang may ri
ot. Swear.

"Human bidding, DK. It looks fun!!" Kim squeeled.

Nof looked at her, "tawagan ko si Clarence eh. Fun fun ka jan."

Kim glared at her, "kill joy!!"

Nanuod lang kami ng human bidding. Nakakatuwa pala 'yun! Hahaha! Parang constipa
ted yung mukha nung mga lalaki kasi well.. hindi nabiyayaan ng face value yung m
ga babaeng nagbbid sa kanila. Tapos eh ang pogi pa nung mga lalaki! Varsity guys
= hot guys. And ginrab naman ng groupies nila yung chance na makadate sila for
a day. Wise girls.

Since medyo nabbore na ako sa panonood, nag iPad muna ako. (Plus ayoko ding istr
essed out ang sarili ko kay Ynna. Not worth it, please lang). Nagfacebook muna a
ko. (-.-)

Seriously??

Danna Robles: Alam mo bang tayong dalawa ang AUBURN? Kasi, you're the apple to m
y pie, you're the straw of my berry, you're the smoke to my high and you're the

O______________O

Bakit puro pick up lines ng babae ang wall ni Andy??

God! Hindi ba tinuruan ng proper decorum ng magulang nila ang mga babae na 'to??
At sila pa talaga ang nagpost sa wall ni Andy!! Pambihira! Mahaharot na bata!!
Si Andy naman, napunta lang sa States, bumalik na naman ang kalandian! Tch. At h
indi ko hinanap ang wall ni Andy. At hindi din ako defensive. Nakita ko lang siy
a sa news feed ko, nagkataon. Wag assuming, guys.

*poke poke* "DK!"

"What??" i glared at her. Nagbabasa pa ako ng comments eh!

Pinoint out niya using her lips yung mga tao sa paligid ko. O-kay? Bakit sila na
katingin sa 'kin?? Bawal na ba gumamit ng free wi-fi sa school??

"What did i do??" I asked with a hint of panic in my voice.

"Tawag ka sa taas," Nof said.

"Huh?" Ano daw? Bakit ako tawag sa taas?

"Human bidding, DK. It's gonna be fun!!!" Kim squeeled again.

O____________O "Come again? Human bidding??"

Are they fckin' kidding me?? Ako, ipapabid nila? Ano ko, laruan?? Tsaka afford b
a nila ako?? Photoshoot nga umaabot ng million ang range, date pa kaya?!?!

Pinagtulakan ako ni Kim, "come on, DK. It's fun!! Go and make them want you!!"

No choice, pumunta ako sa stage. Puro sigawan ng guys ang naririnig ko. Sikat ba
ako sa school? Never knew. Hindi ko naman kasi sila pinapansin. Konti lang din
friends ko. (-_-)

Nagsalita yung host, "Dana Kathryn Ferrer. 19 years old. BA Fashion Designing st
udent," sabi niya. Binasa niya yung hawak niyang cue card. So kasali pala talaga
ako dito?! Sana pala hindi na lang ako umattend. Puro kamalasan na gabi.

"You want to add something?" tanong nung host sa akin.

"I am feisty," bored kong sagot, "and i fckin' bite."

Sigawan naman yung mga lalaki. Seriously, girls deprived ba ang mga lalaki sa St
. Claire's?? Tsaka sinabi ko yung para magdalawang isip silang magbid. Tss. Guys
. I can never really decipher how they use their minds.

Nagsimula na ang bidding. Hindi ako nakikinig actually. Tss. One date, that's al
l. Hindi naman mahirap gawin yun lalo pa't isa akong neglected mistress. Ironic,
huh? Hindi ba dapat mas nabibigyan ng attention ang mistress? Ganun sa movies d
i ba? Pero bakit ako yung neglected one?!!

"Ooh. 20, 000. Going up?" Host.

"23, 000," sabi nung isang guy.

O___________O 23, 000? For a date? Are they nuts?!!

"Looks like Ms. Ferrer is one hell of a girl," comment nung host, "so, 23, 000.
Going up?"

"50, 000," sabi ni.. Cyriel? Boses ni Cyriel yun ah!!

Tahimik lahat ng tao. Sino ba naman ang hindi magugulat? 50, 000?? Alam kong may
aman lahat ng tao dito but come on! 50, 000? Really??

I looked into his eyes.. and smiled. Same old Cyriel. He always saves me.

The host shook his head in disbelief, "you really are one feisty girl, Ms. Ferre
r. You got all the boys go wild.. So, 50, 000, going up?"

Tahimik lahat. Sino ba naman kasi ang idiot enough to throw money for a date?? O
nly Cyriel. But he loves me so that's fine.

"So it's sett--" hindi natapos magsalita yung host kasi may humabol.

"100, 000?"

*literal jawdrop*

I searched for the guy who spoke but i can't see him.

Sigawan naman yung mga tao. What the hell was that?? A hundred bucks for a date?
!?!

"Whoa. A hundred thousand. So, going up once again?"

Tumingin ulit ako kay Cyriel. He looked shocked.. and angry? I smiled to myself.
Selos. Tch. But then, napatingin ako sa katabi niya.. si Ynna. And she looked..
hurt.

I saw Cyriel was about to speak. Tataasan pa ang bid perhaps.

Lumapit ako sa host and whispered something, "look. A hundred thousand is enough
, i believe. Just tell them the bidding's over. I will go on a date with whoever
that creep is," i said then bumaba ako ng stage.

I don't know what i just did. But i saw Ynna and.. i felt that i needed to do so
mething. She looked really pained that i almost felt her pain. Baliw na yata ako
.

The night continued. Napasama din si Kim sa bidding but she


Clarence. (-_-) Si Nof? Asa pa. No one dared to talk to her
ooks could kill, patay na sana lahat dito. She really looks
a if you don't know her, you won't take the risk to talk to

declined. Takot kay


maliban sa'min. If l
snob. Literally. Kay
her.

The party officially started. Apparently, some guys sneaked in some alcohol and
mixed it with the beverage. Kaya pala medyo mainit sa pakiramdam kanina.

Pupunta sana ulit ako sa cr pero biglang may humatak sa akin ang pushed me gentl
y against the wall.

"Cy, not now. I'm not feeling very well," i said. I know it's Cy. I know if it's
him.

He hugged me, "bakit mo ginawa yun?"

I know that he's pertaining to what happened earlier.

"Doing you a favor. Ynna looked upset kaya ko ginawa yun, Cy. It's no big deal.
I could date you anytime if you want. Just tell me," i said stating the obvious.

He sighed, "why do i feel like you're drifting away?" He silently asked.

"I'm not drifting away, Cy. You're just not holding me tight enough," i said the
n kumalas ako sa yakap niya.

I went to the garden. I feel.. relieved. Actually, matagal ko ng gustong sabihin


sa kanya yun.. I feel lonely and neglected. I know he loves me pero sapat ba yu
n? Sometimes, love is not enough. I want attention. He loves me but i can't feel
it. Ano pa't sinasabi niyang mahal niya ako pero si Ynna ang kasama niya??

I tried to reason it out at first.. He's just too damn kind, di ba? Pero the hel
l! Hindi naman ako ganun ka tanga! No matter how hard i tried to ignore it, stil
l, a part of me thinks that he loves Ynna. Somehow. Hindi naman niya gagawin yun
kung hindi, di ba? I used to remember someone who told me that there's a thin l
ine between love and pity. Nasan ka dun, Cy? Do you just pity her.. or do you lo
ve her?

I already texted Kim and Nof and told them that i'm going home. I don't feel wel
l at all. I'm not angry at Cy.. I just wish that he'll choose me. Kahit minsan?
Ang sakit din kasi ng lagi kang second option.. Now i know what Andy felt.. And
it honestly sucks.

Just as i was about to get in my car..

"Long time no see, huh?"

-------------------Andy's Point of View

"Hey!"

Ano ba naman 'tong babaeng 'to?? Hindi ba niya masense na ayaw ko siyang kausap?
O kahit makita man lang?? Hindi pa ba obvious eh iniwan ko na nga yung canned g
oods ko dun!! Ilang dollars din kaya yun! Leche!

Naabutan niya ako kasi nga.. PILAY AKO!! Leche! Ngayon talaga ako nagsisisi na n
apilay ako!!

"What's your problem, mister? I was just trying to be friendly here.." sabi niya
na may pout pa. Tch. Kadiri.

"I don't need friends," sabi ko.

"But it's boring here if you don't have friends! I'm Glorie, by the way. You?" s
abi niya sa'kin with a smile. Tch. Kala mo model ng toothpaste kung maka ngiti.

"I'm your nightmare."

Tumawa naman siya. Baliw na babae! Bipolar!

"You really are Mr. Grumpy," sabi niya, "here, let me help you with that," tapos
pinulot niya isa isa yung canned goods.

"Hey!!!"

Tch. Wais 'to, tol. Iniwan ko siya dun tapos nagdrive na. Bahala siya sa buhay n
iya. Hindi ako papakatanga para sa de lata! Hahaha!

Bumalik na ako ng bahay. As usual, boring. Sige na. Bibili na ako ng aso. Baka b
igla na lang akong mabaliw dito eh!! Ano kaya'ng magandang breed??

Hmm. Nagsearch muna ako sa google..

Ano nga kaya?

Teacup kaya? Baka naman maapakan ko, maging dog killer pa ako ng wala sa oras!
Afghan Hound? Naaah. Masyadong mabuhok. Mahirap imaintain.
Bulldog? Shet!! Baka hindi na ako makabalik sa Pilipinas niyan!! Nanlalapa ba yu
n??
Akita na nga lang. Matino pa yung itsura.

Tama. Makapunta nga sa pet shop bukas. Tsaka para makapag exercise na din ako sa
hapon.. Ilalakad ko sa shore yung aso. Leche. Nauwi lang ako sa aso. Ang gwapo
ko pero.. sa aso lang ako mauuwi???

Haay. Natulog muna ako. Pakiramdam ko tataba ako dito eh. Tss. Sayang naman ang
abs, biceps, at pecs ko kung matutunaw lang dito. Ilang taon ko din tong pinaghi
rapan sa gym!

Pumunta ako sa balcony at dun natulog. Tinatamad na akong umakyat. Lately timata
mad na talaga ako sa buhay ko.

After ilang hours siguro, nagising na din ako. Gabi na. Nyeta! Punta muna ako ng
kitchen para mag microwave ng kung anumang pagkain. Hmmm. Lasagna for tonight?
Oo na lang.

Pagkatapos kong kumain, nanood muna ako ng movie. Tch. Ang boring talaga!!!! Mag
partime job kaya ako?? Sige nga subukan ko. Kailangan ng gumaling pilay ko talag
a!

Habang kumakain ako, may umistorbo na naman sa katahimikan ko. Akala ko ba hindi
uso ang pakielamanan sa neighborhood sa States? Tch

Pagbukas na pagbukas ko ng pinto--

O_____________O

Holy Sht!!!

"Skinny dipping?"

Anon'g problema ng babae na 'to???

Dana's Point of View

1 message received

From: Cy Perez
Let's talk?

I sighed. I haven't seen my friends since the sem starter, i'm quite busy with m
y little job. Remember that i volunteered myself to help mom for some designs? T
hat's what keeps me busy this whole time. Actually this is just my scapegoat, ay
oko din muna kasing makita si Cy. The last conversation we had was.. a bit tacky
. We're drifting apart, obvious naman di ba? I gave too much effort para intindi
hin na may sakit si Ynna, pero kasi kahit anong pagdiinan ang gawin ko sa utak k
o, there's still this selfish part inside me na nagsasabi na gusto kong ako lang
. Is that too much to ask for? They've been together for a year sa States! Silan
g dalawa lang, di pa ba sapat yun? Eh ako? Gaano kami nagkasama? Vaguely three m
onths.

But.. i cannot really understand myself. I feel frigging irritated pag naiisip k
o na si Ynna ang priority ni Cy pero pag nakikita ko si Ynna? Ako pa mismo ang g
umagawa ng paraan para sumama sa kanya si Cy. Abnormal ko noh? I may be a bitch
pero may puso naman ako. At hindi ko maatim na makiagaw pa kay Cy. She's sick an
d i'm not. She needs him and i need him as well but.. Hindi ko kayang makiagaw.
Hindi kaya ng konsensya ko. I feel awful at the mere thought. I CANNOT REALLY UN
DERSTAND ANYTHING AT ALL. Ynna got me under her sleeves as well.

I got my things and prepared to go to mom's office. Halos tapos ko na yung isang
portfolio ng designs, bahala na kung may magustuhan si mom. Tutal, my only conc
ern is to keep myself busy, and i figure that i'm doing good so far.

After minutes of driving, nakarating na din ako. I went to mom's office and as u
sual, busy lahat ng tao. If i heard it right, may fashion show yatang ioorganize
kaya busy lahat. Well, as if naman may bago dun, di ba?

"Knock knock?" i said as i entered her office. Wala si mom sa harap ng mesa niya
. Wonder where she is?

I was about to go out when someone spoke behind me, "hey, D."

Stupid son of a prick!!

flashback (the sem starter night)

"Long time no see, huh?"

I turned back only to see.. "Josh?!" I almost exclaimed!

He smirked, "what a way to greet your old friend, Dana."

"I don't believe that you deserve a warm nice-to-see-you-again act, jerk," i ret
orted. What does he want me to do? To feel all giddy and worked up kasi nasa har
ap ko siya ngayon? Well dream on! The last time i saw him was when he drugged me
! Sa tingin niya ano ang mararamdaman ko??

"Ooh, feisty," he said.

Bwisit! Kapal ng mukha! Pasalamat siya hindi ko siya pinakulong dati!

"Why are you here? Drug deal?" i asked. What can i do? Drug addict na ang tingin
ko sa kanya simula ng ioverdose niya ako! Stupid prick!

"Nah. Just lurking around. I'm planning to study again," he said and light up a
cigar, "you want?"

"Asa. I don't believe you. You're a jerk since birth kaya alam kong you're up to
something," i honestly said. After what he did to me? I couldn't trust him at a
ll!

"Try to put your guards down, D. I'm completely harmless," he said tapos tinaas
niya yung kamay niya, "i even went to rehab for you."

"What do you want??" i irritatedly asked. I don't want him near me. Nakakailang
na nakakainis na nakakagalit na ewan! Plus nagguilty pa din ako kasi hindi natul
oy yung engagement niya dahil sa akin..

"Paying back," he smiled, "see you around, D. I'm taking my masterals this sem,"
tapos umalis na siya. Leche. How messed up is my life??

present...

"Why are you here??" i asked. Sinusundan ba ako ng British na bwisit na 'to??

He raised his brow and gave me this are-you-stupid look, "i'm a model, D."

Right. He's a model. Ang tanga ko talaga.

"Oo nga pala," i uttered to myself, "don't call me D, please. Creepy."

He laughed, "but why? It's cute, right?"

"It's creepy, Josh. Plus i have a boyfriend and i'm pretty sure he won't like it
," i stated.

He nodded, "right. Andrei Guzman? I asked your mom about that.. and he's not aro

und. He's in America."

I cursed at myself. Hindi ko pa nga pala nasasabi kay mom na wala na kami ni And
y.. Natatakot kasi ako sa sasabihin niya. She likes Andy bigtime! And dad as wel
l. Baka madisappoint sila na hindi na kami ni Andy.. and i don't think na matutu
wa sila pag nalaman nila na kabit ako. Sino ba nga naman ang matutuwa di ba? Stu
pid me.

"So?"

He took a step forward, "so that means that i can date you. A hundred thousand f
or a date. You are really expensive, D," he said then caressed my face.

"Fck off, Josh. You won't get anything from me i swear," i hissed.

"Not so fast, D. We had a deal, remember? I paid to date you so you must oblige.
"

Stupid human bidding! Sana pala pumayag na ako na si Cy ang manalo eh di sana i
don't have to deal with this.. addict!!

Good thing dumating si mom, "Kathryn? Oh, you're here as well, Josh. Anyways, wh
at brings you here, Kath?"

I gave her my portfolio, "there. Yan palang ang nagagawa ko. I'll just give you
the others after i finish."

I gave her
focating..
clubs, and
a galit pa

a quick peck and got out of that building! Having Josh near me is suf
and creepy! He's really creepy! He uses drugs, goes to illegal night
who knows what else he can do?? Plus i'm not sure what he wants.. bak
din siya sakin because of his engagement..

-St. Claire's-

"Finally, nagpakita ka din!!" Kim said as i approached their table.

"Sorry, busy days. Kamusta?"

"Same old," Nof said. Wala si Sara. Nasan kaya yun?

"Bakit kayo lang? Si Sara?" I asked.

Kim shrugged, "ewan. Di ko din masyadong nakikita eh. Oh well, baka busy. Alam m
o naman, ngarag si Sara, midterms yata sa Accountancy ngayon eh. Katakot!"

Wala nga din pala si Dave. Graduate na din. Si Cyriel na lang pala ang naiwan sa
kanilang tatlo.. Speaking of him, nasan na kaya yun? Hindi na niya ako kinontac
t since the last text he sent me..

I immediately went to the library para magresearch. I have a presentation to do


later and i didn't even start a bit. As in wala! I'll do this from scratch! Ugh!
This is the main reason why don't like cramming. The pressure is overwhelming a

nd my brain can't function fully.

I went inside the main lib and got some books and opened my mac book pro. Okay.
Kalma lang, Dana. You can do this!

I was doing my presentation religiously when someone poked me from behind.

"What the heck, Josh?!" i hissed, mindful of the accusing stare from the librari
an.

"What, D? I told you that i'll be studying for my masterals again, right?" he sa
id and sat on the chair next to me, "need some help?"

"No, i can manage," i said.

"You sure? That's a lot of books," he stated. Actually, there's thre pile of boo
ks on my table. This is a lot of work to do, i know.

"Just shut up, Josh. This is due later. I need all the concentration i can get,"
i said but he's not listening. What the?

"That's Management Economics, right?" he said as he continued scanning my presen


tation, "i can help you. I mean, i'm a business economics major, D," he said bec
ause i glared at him.

"Oh, i thought you're a drug dealing major?" i sarcastically said.

He showed his loopsided grin, "yup, cum laude for that one," the he winked, "but
i'm serious though, i'm good with economics, swear! I can help you.. some of yo
ur inputs in the presentation are misleading. Why do you have that subject, by t
he way? You're a designing major, right?"

I nodded, "minor subjects. Fine then, help me."

He grinned and got his own laptop. Whoa. I've never seen Josh so.. serious. He's
like this happy go lucky man and now he's all serious and worked-up with my pre
sentation.. but it's still creepy. Period.

After few hours, my presentation is done!! Thank, heavens!

I was arranging my things when i noticed a paper on the floor. I got it and.. "w
hat the, Josh??"

He looked at me with a strange expression, "whoa, D. Why are you angry?"

"Jerk. Why are you even here?? You have a class!!" i said as i ran through his n
ewly acquired schedule.

I hissed. Letche! May klase siya ngayon eh tapos nandito siya at tinutulungan ak
o?? Gusto niya bang lumubog na ako sa utang na loob sa kanya??

He got his things, "no fuss, D. It's alright. I don't want to study, if i even h
ave a choice. It's just my dad pushing me to study so relax," he said, "i'll go
now. Good luck to your presentation," he winked and got out of the lib.

-later that day-

Tapos na din!! Yes! My professor even praised me for the presentation, mas magan
da pa daw yung sa'kin kaysa sa econ majors. Huh! Beat that! I'm not a dean's lis
ter for nothing, Prof. Bragging right is mine.

I went home and took a shower. Wala naman si mom eh, si dad naman nasa kwarto, n
atutulog na. Workaholic parents.

I texted Sara and others para magbar. Today was exhausting kaya kailangang magre
lax minsan. Pumunta ako sa nearest club sa St. Claire's. 8 p.m pa lang naman kay
a wala pa masyadong tao. 11 pa kasi nagsisimulang dumating ang mga tao.

I sat on the stool on the counter and ordered the regular. Duh. Close na nga kam
i ng bartender dito eh. Dito kasi ako madalas pag ayaw kong makita si Dave. Haha
ha! I don't know, minsan ayokong makita si Dave. Ang cute cute niya kasi, nanggi
gigil ako.

Tonic for tonight. Ang aga pa eh, tagal naman nila Sara.

I checked my phone.

From: SaraBesty
can't come. EXAMS. hehehe. loveyouuuuu

From: Kim Miranda


busy with boyfie. hihihi. next time, DK!!!

Ugh! I'm all alone pala. Si Nof kaya? Asan na naman yung babaeng yun? Tch. Ako n
a nga lang. Uuwi na lang din ako before 11 since all alone ang drama ko.

I was having my 4th shot when Josh arrived. Seriously, siguro hinahanap niya ako
sa GPS! Too much for a coincidence naman kung hindi sinasadya di ba??

"Again, Josh. Stop pestering me, you won't get laid if you're around me everytim
e," i said.

He laughed, "you're drunk, D. I won't get laid with you, i know that. Besides, i
came here with some friends and i just saw you. Purely coincidental."

I rolled my eyes, "yeah, right. Then go, i can manage."

He went back to his friends, model friends to be exact. Narerecognize ko kasi yu


ng iba nakasama ko na sa shows. Tch. Show off ba sila? Ang daming high end clubs
dito pero dito pa talaga nila napili. Tch.

As i was enjoying my drink, may mga lalaki na lumapit sa'kin. Fudge! Kaya ayoko

ng nag iisa eh, boys will hit on me!

"You alone, miss?"-guy 1

"No, i'm with someone. Nag cr lang," i lied. Douchebags.

"Then come with us since wala pa pala yung kasama mo," -guy 2

I shook my head, "no, really. I'll stay here," i said. Konti na lang maiinis na
ko!

"Come on, miss. Wag ka ng pakipot,"-guy 1

I was about to kick these jerks' ass when someone spoke, "she's with me, man. Ba
ck the fucking off," Josh said using his dangerous (with that sexy British accen
t) tone. Naintindihan naman yata nung mga lalaki kaya umalis na sila.

"Are you alright?" he asked.

"Yeah, but thanks for helping," i admitted.

"You wanna come with me? I'll introduce you to my friends," he offered.

I declined. I don't want to mingle with those models. Lesson learned. Last, last
summer, i tried to be friends with them. Tch. They're no goods. Useless girls.
They befriended me because of my mom, gusto pala nilang maging model ng line ng
FHF. Bunch of users.

He went back to his friends then after a minute, he's back. O-kay?

"I'll stay with you," he said, "one rhum."

"Huh? Come on, Josh. What do you want from me? I'll date you next week if that's
what you want. Just stop bugging me," i said.

He smiled, "D, i'm a changed man. I don't want anything from you so put your gua
rds down, alright?"

I rolled my eyes, "talk to the hand, Josh. If this is about your ruined engageme
nt, i'm so sorry about that! I really am! I was just drunk that night, i am real
ly, really sorry!"

He sighed, "yeah, about that. Remember what i said during the night i won the bi
dding?" i nodded, " i said that i'm here to pay back. And that's what i'm doing.
I'm paying you back for saving me. Liana's a btch. He's doing my best friend be
hind my back. Thanks to you our engagement was cancelled," he said.

Whoa. Never thought Josh has a complicated life.

"I'm also friends with Clarence Perez and he mentioned about your problem with C
yriel so i helped you during the bidding. I can't understand Rence, though. He t
old me to stay near you always. He wants to make his brother jealous. Tss. Rence
is a wicked man by heart."

I continued drinking, processing what Josh told me when somebody grabbed me from
behind, "Cy?"

He looks furious, "let's talk."

Let's talk. The phrase i always dread to hear.

Andy's Point of View

"Skinny dipping?"

O____________O

Isasara ko na sana yung pinto pero hinarang niya yung kamay niya. Hindi naman ak
o sadista, baka maipit siya. (-_-)

"What?" i asked. Napaka dense na babae. Kahit mag two piece siya sa harap ko.. b
asta! Sht! Dry spell ako ng two years.. layuan mo ako, tukso!!

"We're going on skinny dipping with my friends, wanna come, Mr. Grumpy?" she ask
ed.

Tingin sa mata, Andy! Wala sa dibdib niya yung mata! Leche!!

"Nah. I'm eating," sabi ko. Seryosong boses. Tangna! Nakaka one minute na siya s
a doorsteps ko. Leche! Hanggang five minutes na lang ang self control ko!! Leche
!!

"Come on. We have foods there and bonfire. I'll show you around. Miami's best du
ring night time," she said. Lecheng puppy eyes yan, bakit ba nauso ka pa?!!

"Look, miss. My foot is on cast so even if i want to, i can't come," sabi ko tap
os tinuro ko yung paa ko. Pag angat ko ng tingin, nahinto na naman sa dibdib niy
a, malala na ako!

"Oh, that's fine. I'll help you," sabi niya tapos inalalayan niya ako.

Kinuha niya yung isang braso ko tapos ipinatong niya sa balikat niya. Tangina, A
ndy! Yung dulo ng daliri ko, halos nakadikit na sa boobs niya!! Matagal ko ng in
iwasang maging manyak pero kusang lumalapit sa'kin eh! Leche!

Halos nalunok ko na lahat ng laway ko bago kami makarating sa shore. Hindi kaya
niya napansin na nanginginig yung daliri ko kanina pa???

"Hey, what's your name again?" tanong niya sa akin.

Tignan mo 'tong babaeng 'to, kanina pa ako kinukulit pero hindi naman pala alam
ang pangalan ko (-_-)

"Louie," sabi ko.

Naks, Andy! Maganda yan! Tuloy tuloy na new life!

"Louie, nice name," sabi niya tapos humarap sa mga kaibigan niya, "guys, this is
Louie, he's new to the neighborhood."

Inalalayan niya akong umupo dun sa malapit sa bonfire. Puta. Chicks lahat ng kai
bigan niya. Bakit puro babae yung nandito? Iniisip niya kaya na bading ako? Ay p
uta talaga! Gusto ba niyang patunayan ko na lalaki ako? Leche! Subukan niya lang
isipin na bading ako!!

"This is Angel, Shaira, Ruan, Jeanlei, Bernadette, Jem Mateo, Mhael, Leira Gene,
Danna, Eunice, Ana Marie," tapos tinignan ko isa isa. Tares. Chicks talaga. Dal
in ko kaya si Clarence dito? Matutuwa yun sigurado! Hahaha! Magagalit naman si K
im sa'kin. Wag na nga lang.

Nag inuman lang sila. Hindi ako. Nako. Mahirap na, yung ibang kaibigan ko napiko
t dahil sa ganito eh, lasing lasing tapos pag nabuntis yung babae sa kanila ipap
aako kahit wala naman talagang nangyari. Matalino yata ako.

Mababait naman sila, medyo wild nga lang nung nakaka ilang bote na ng beer. Nag
strip tease sa harap ko (-_-) Pero okay na din, at least hindi nila iniisip na b

ading ako. O baka naman sinusubukan nila kung bading ako?!! Kung hindi ko sila p
apansinin, bading ako, kung papansinin ko sila, lalaki ako. Hindi ko sila pinans
in eh, iniisip kaya nila na bading ako???

Nag skinny dipping na yung iba.

Andy (--,)-------------------- dagat

Hindi ako nakatingin. Prevention is better than cure.

"Hey," nakatabi na naman yung makulet na babae sa akin. Ano nga ba pangalan nito
? Kamukha ni Dana eh. Dana wannabe kaya? Aish! Get a life, Andy! Kasama na niya
si Cy ngayon, wag kang bitter. Leche.

"Smores?" tanong niya.

Kinuha ko na lang para wala ng usap usap.

"So, how's my friends. They're nice, right?"

"Sexy," sabi ko.

Bigla naman siya tumawa. Nauubos na talaga pagkalalaki ko sa wannabe na to!

"Sorry for laughing, Louie. That was just epic. Anyways, you're a Filipino?"

"No, Japanese."

She looked confused, "really? You don't look like one."

Leche. Ganda sana eh, medyo tanga lang. Hindi nga ako singkit eh pano ako naging
hapon.

"No, i'm a Filipino. Idiot," sabi ko.

Nagpout na naman siya, "why are you so grumpy, Louie? I just want to be friends.
"

Tinignan ko siya, "look, miss. I know when a girl is flirting with me," sabi ko.

Tumawa na naman siya. 3/4 na lang yung pagkalalaki ko. (-_-)

"I'm Glorie, Louie. G L O R I E," she said. Emphasizing every letters. Tch.

"Fine, Glorie. As i was saying, it's given, you're flirting with me. And i can't
entertain you, sorry. I just had a very horrible break up."

She nodded, "oh. That girl is stupid."

Nice. Bumalik na sa 1 whole ang pagkalalaki ko.

"She's not."

"So tell me about her," sabi niya.

Leche. Wala ngang Dana dapat eh.

"She's amazing. Period. I don't want to talk about that, if you don't mind," i s
aid.

She smiled, "okay. I'm beat, Louie. You want to go home already?"

Tumango ako tapos inalalayan niya ako. Nagpaalam muna kami sa friends niya. Chic
ks talaga. Leche.

"See you tomorrow," sabi niya tapos tumakbo na siya pabalik ng beach.

Napailing na lang ako, ang kulit na babae.

Bonus Chapter
Andy's Point of View

"Berdy, come here, baby girl," tawag ko sa girlfriend ko. Huh! Akala niyo tambay
lang ako sa bahay namin? Productive din naman ako kahit papano! Nakabili na ako
ng baby ko.

Kasama ko siya ngayon sa front porch ng bahay. Napatanggal ko na nga din pala yu
ng cast. Tch. Halos isang buwan ko din yung tiniis ah! Hindi tuloy pantay yung k
ulay ng paa at binti ko. Pucha! Kailan pa ako naging vain???

Medyo nagcclutch na lang ako. Ewan. Dyahe kasi. Para akong disabled eh kaya hind
i ko din ginagamit. Hindi na lang ako gumagalaw para walang hassle! Hahaha! Tang
na ang tamad ko talaga!

Pinakain ko yung girlfriend ko. At least hindi ako single ngayon. (-_-) Meet Be
rdy, my four months old girlfriend. Parang pedophile lang ako. Tss.

"Gusto mong maglakad?"

Dinilaan niya yung kamay ko kaya siguro oo na yun. Kailangan kong intindihin ang
girlfriend ko. Baka iwanan din ako nito. (-_-) Ang sakit lang sa ego, kahit aso
kaya akong idump.

Naglalakad ako papuntang shore ng makita ko na naman 'tong babae na 'to.

"Hi, Louie!" sabi niya, "what's his name?" sabi niya nung nilalaro niya si Berdy
. Kinagat siya niya Berdy. Good girlfriend! Possessive! Hahaha!

"Her. Berdy's a girl," sabi ko. Leche! Napapractice talaga ang English speaking
skills ko sa brunette na 'to!

She pouted, "sorry. Berdy doesn't seem to like me," sabi niya ng naka pout pa di
n. Lintek bakit ba nauso pa yung pout???

I smirked, "i know. She doesn't like ugly people."

Hinampas niya ako ng mahina, yung ginagawa ng mga pa cute na babae, "you're mean
."

"I know. That's why you called me Mr. Grumpy, right?"

She stucked her tongue out, "whatever, Louie. Want to come with me?"

"Huh?"

She beamed, "i'm going to my part time job. There's an opening there, wanna try?
In case you got bored. Just to kill some time," offer niya.

Hmm. Part time job? Pwede din. Medyo okay na ako sa nirereview ko eh. Basahin ko
daw ba kasi gabi gabi? Tapos naka post pa sa dingding. Halos mapanaginipan ko n
a nga yung formulas eh. (-_-)

"Can i bring Berdy together with me?"

She pouted, "i'm afraid not, Louie. Angel's a little strict with animals. But yo
u can give her to Lawrence, my brother. He likes dogs!"

Tumahol naman si Berdy, nagalit yata, "she's not a dog. She's my girlfriend."

Tumawa naman 'tong babae na 'to. Ano ba kasing nakakatawa sa sinabi ko????

"Hahaha! I thought you're single, turned out you're out of the market. Berdy see
ms to be a tough competitor," sabi niya habang sinusubukang hawakan si Berdy, pa
nay iwas naman ng girlfriend ko. Tch. Suplada. Ilang araw pa lang kaming naglliv
e in, possessive na agad sa'kin. Lakas talaga ng ka gwapuhan ko.

Naglakad lakad kami papunta sa pinagttrabahuhan niya. Buti na lang at medyo mala
pit, nahihirapan pa din kasi akong maglakad. Nakirot pa din ng konti. (-_-) Kasa
lanan 'to ni Nof kaya ako naaksidente. Ano na kayang nangyari sa baboy na yun?

"Girls, this is Louie once again. The one i introduced to you before?" sabi niya
nung makapunta kami sa parang abandoned warehouse.

Ngumiti naman sila. Tukso. Tukso. Tukso. Bakit mo ako nilalapitan?? (_ _")

"This is Angel, my boss. Don't hit on her, she's got a boyfriend, Daniel John is
his name." sabi ni ano nga ba pangalan nito? Gloria ba? Ah basta! Ni Gloria dun
sa babae na maganda (lahat naman sila maganda, tanga ko talaga minsan) na nagpp
aint nung canvass. Blonde tapos gray yung mata. Chicks sana eh.. kaso taken. Wag
na.

Tinuro niya naman yung babae na nagssort out nung papers sa gilid, mukhang seryo
so eh, "That one is Ruan, a good friend of mine. She's kinda serious at times es
pecially when she does her accounting works." Tch. Sayang, ganda pa naman, mukha
ng masungit lang. Pero yan ang gusto ko, yung fierce! Hahaha!

"That one is Shaira, the one in-charged with technical stuffs. She's a great pro
grammer!!" tinignan ko naman yung tinuro niya. Ganda eh! Kaso may kausap sa phon
e, "she's taken already. Too bad. Ashton is a great guy though! You should meet
him sometime," sabi niya. Tss. May boyfriend pala eh. Wag ng lapitan. Problema p
a pag nagkataon. (-_-) Ano ba, Andrei Louie Guzman! May Berdy ka na!! Mamaya haw
aan ako ng rabis na yun pag nalaman niya nagtwo time ako eh!!

Tapos lumapit kami sa mga babae na nakaupo sa gilid, mukhang busy eh! Mas sume s
exy pa naman ang babae pag busy!! "Guys, remember Louie? Louie, this is Jeanlei,
our other technician, Jem and Mhae, our visual artists, Leira and Eunice, our s
tage designers, Ana Marie, our production assistant, and Danna, our production h
ead." Tinignan ko sila isa isa. Delikado talaga dito. Puro babae. Teka lang, bak
it ako nandito??? Eh puro babae sila halos lahat ah!! Wag mong sabihin na babali
k na naman sa issue na bading ako??? Eh kung halikan ko kaya sila isa isa?!!

Medyo hindi ko nilapitan sila, lalo na yung Danna! Hahaha! Basta alam niyo na..
Tsaka may Berdy na ako! Possessive masyado eh. Tsk! Gwapo ko talaga!

"What are you doing?" tanong ko kay Gloria. Mukhang busy sila eh. Ano bang ginag
awa namin dito?

"There's this event in January, fashion event to be precise. We're organizing th


is warehouse because this is the perfect place since it's near the city proper o
f Miami and its a bit spacious since they will launch their line here officially
. I don't know who the designer is by the way. I just heared they are big in the
Philippines," sabi niya. Ah. Akala ko naman kung anong kababalaghan ang ginagaw
a nila dito ng kaibigan niya. (-_-)

Tinignan ko muna yung mga ginagawa nila. Bakit ba sila puro babae dito?? Halos d
alawa lang yung lalaki na nakikita ko. Ano sila? Superwoman?? Akala naman nila k
aya nilang buhatin yung mabibigat na gamit dito. Tss. Pasalamat sila sa abs, tri
ceps, at biceps ko at matutulungan ko sila. Tsk.

Medyo may naitulong naman ako. Magkano ba bayad dito?? Halos maligo na ako sa pa
wis ko eh!! Sana naman umabot ng pambili ng dog food. Ubos na pagkain ni Berdy e
h. Takaw ng girlfriend ko. Kailangan ko ng isecure ang trustfund ko. Tsk.

By 6 pm, natapos na din kami. Nagpaalam naman sila isa isa. Pero nag enjoy talag
a ako! Isipin mo naman habang nagttrabaho kami, nakasuot sila ng micromini short
s at hanging blouse o kaya racerback shirts. Ganito yata talaga sila manamit dit
o kasi kahit si Gloria kung magsuot sa harap ko akala mo inaakit ako palagi eh.
Pero kahit na! Sulit ang pagod ko!! Hahaha!

TEASER for Chapter 58, 59, 60 (I know you want it *winks*)
####################################

Dedicated to her since tagal ko na siyang nakakausap sa watty/fb. Pati sa ANDREI


LOUIE GUZMAN na tula niya! :>>>

Play the song on the side! :>

TEASERS!

**

He spoke, "sorry, Dana. Sorry kasi wala akong kwentang lalaki kasi lagi kang nas
asaktan dahil sa'kin," lumapit siya sa akin tapos hinawakan niya yung kamay ko,
"pero wag mo akong sukuan, Dana. Ikaw lang yung dahilan kaya kinakaya ko pa laha
t ng nangyayari sa buhay ko."

"Napapagod din ako, Cy. Ako yung dahilan kaya hindi ka sumusuko.. pero hindi mo
man lang ba naisip na baka ikaw naman yung dahilan kaya gusto ko nang sumuko?"

Pagkatapos kong sabihin yun, unti unting napaluhod si Cyriel sa harap ko. Sinubu
kan ko siyang itayo pero.. "wag mo namang sabihin yan, Dana.. Ang sakit eh.. Tin
itiis ko na laging wala sa tabi mo kasi alam kong baka mas masaktan ka pag nakit
a mong kasama ko si Ynna. Alam mo ba kung gano kasakit na wala ka na naman sa ta
bi ko?? Palagi na lang ganito, lagi na lang may dahilan para hindi kita makasama
. Pero wala akong pakielam sa lahat ng dahilan na yun, Dana. Alam mo kung bakit?

Kasi mahal kita."

**

I tried to laugh but he hugged me, "wag kang ganyan, Ynna. Niloloko mo lang ako
eh! Si Dana pa din ang mahal ko kahit magka cancer, tuberculosis, o leukemia ka
pa! Wag mo naman akong lokohin!"

I silently shed a tear, "sana nga nagloloko lang ako, Cyriel. Sana nga wala akon
g sakit, sana nga hindi ako nahihirapan ng ganito. Sana nga may lakas ako para i
paglaban ka kay Dana, na agawin ka sa kanya. Pero hindi eh.. I got these, all of
these," i said then i burst into tears.

**

"Cy, Cy," sabi ko habang tinatapik tapik ko siya.

"Hmm?" sabi niya, half asleep. Nakapikit pa kasi yung mata niya, "wake up, kain
tayo?" i said.

Dinilat niya yung mata niya tapos ngumiti.

Na self conscious naman ako sa ngiti niya! May dumi ba yung mukha ko? Titig na t
itig siya eh!

"Uh, may mali ba sa mukha ko?" i asked.

He smiled tapos inayos niya yung upo siya, "nah. I just realized how happy i wou
ld be kung mukha mo ang makikita ko pag gising ko araw araw."

**

Ang ingay talaga ng Glorie na 'to, oh! Akala ko pa naman magkaka silence and sol
itude na ako dito eh!

"I want you out of my sight," sabi ko. Kinuha ko yung laptop ko tapos binuksan.
Hmm.

Pinalo niya yung braso ko. Sus. Chansing.

"Louie, you're being Mr. Grumpy again!!" she whined.

Ang ingay ng babae na 'to!!


"Give me carbonara, French toast, and uhm, silen
ce," sabi ko tapos sinarado ko yung menu.

**

Nag nod siya tapos kinuha ko yung extra shirt ko at nagpalit.

Pagbalik ko sa table, "nice. Goodbye, Dana ka na pala, Andy. Sino yung brunette?
" sabi ni Nof.

"Ah yun ba? Si Glorie," sabi ko.

"New girl?"

Natawa naman ako, "hahaha! Seryoso ka, piggy? Nakita mo ba kung gaano ka clumsy
yun?? Mamaya mamatay ako agad sa pagka careless nun eh. Tsk."

Nag shrug siya, "a strong negative is a positive."

"Dami mong alam, piggy."

"You'll never know, Guzman. You might see yourself falling hard," sabi niya.

**

I smiled at him, "don't tell me i got you whipped that early? Hindi pa nga tayo
close nun eh!"

Hindi nga kami halos nag uusap nun eh! Hindi ba? Kaya nga siya si Mr. Sungit eh!

"One look and you got me," he said, "hindi ka pa nagsasalita, nakuha mo na ako.
That's how whipped i am, Dana. I'm fatally whipped."

**

Aish! Bakit ba kasi gumaganda ang mga babae pag umiiyak? Hirap tuloy tanggihan!
Tsk!

"Do you really need a job?"

Tumango siya.

"Will you work for me?"

**

"Sabi ko, ilagay mo sa kamay ko."

Mukhang naguguluhan siya pero nilagay niya pa din sa daliri ko, "now, Cyriel Edr
ian Perez, fiance mo na ako. Pagkatapos ng lahat ng 'to, pag okay na ang lahat,
pag wala na tayong problema, ako ang pakakasalan mo. Ako lang, hindi si Ynna Isa
bel Henares. Tandaan mo, si Dana Kathryn Ferrer lang ang pakakasalan mo. Akin la
ng yang puso mo.. kasi wala akong balak na ibalik yan."

Ngumiti siya, "i love you, Dana."

"Nasabi ko na ba 'to?" i kissed him, "i love you, Cyriel Edrian Perez."

58th Chapter

"Let's talk," sabi niya habang nakatingin sa aming dalawa ni Josh.

"About?"

"About us," sabi niya.

I sipped my drink, "dito na lang tayo. Ano ba yung sasabihin mo?"

He held my hand, "sa labas tayo, please? Dana?"

I inhaled, "bakit ba kasi kailangang sa labas pa? Ganun ba yung kaimportante?"

He stared into my eyes, "it's about us, Dana. Hindi na ba importante sa'yo yun?"
he said with a pleading voice.

Tumingin ako kay Josh, "excuse us for a while," i said tapos naglakad ako palaba
s ng bar.

Tahimik lang kami habang naglalakad. I don't know how to start a conversation wi
th him. Naninibago ako.. ewan ko. Everything weren't the same as before.

It took me a minute bago ako nakapagsalita, "what about us, Cyriel?"

Nakatingin lang siya sa'kin, "okay pa ba tayo, Dana?"

Natawa ako sa tanong niya, "of course we're not okay! Hindi ba halata? Ganun ka
na ba ka focused kay Ynna para hindi mo mapansin na hindi tayo okay?" sarcastic
kong sabi sa kanya. I don't want to argue tonight kung pwede lang. Ang dami ng c
omplications eh, wag na sanang dagdagan pa.

Lumapit siya sa'kin, "Dana naman.. Napag usapan na natin 'to, di ba?"

"Napag usapan na natin, oo. Pero nasasaktan ako, Cyriel! Hindi ako sanay na lagi
na lang second priority, na lagi na lang option. Na ako ang kasama mo pag okay
si Ynna, pero pag biglang nagka problema kay Ynna, bigla ka na lang mawawala sa
tabi ko. Hindi ako sanay sa rejection, Cyriel. Pero dahil sa'yo, nasasanay na ak
o.. At ayokong masanay. Hindi ko gustong masanay."

He spoke, "sorry, Dana. Sorry kasi wala akong kwentang lalaki kasi lagi kang nas
asaktan dahil sa'kin," lumapit siya sa akin tapos hinawakan niya yung kamay ko,
"pero wag mo akong sukuan, Dana. Ikaw lang yung dahilan kaya kinakaya ko pa laha
t ng nangyayari sa buhay ko."

"Napapagod din ako, Cy. Ako yung dahilan kaya hindi ka sumusuko.. pero hindi mo
man lang ba naisip na baka ikaw naman yung dahilan kaya gusto ko nang sumuko?"

Pagkatapos kong sabihin yun, unti unting napaluhod si Cyriel sa harap ko. Sinubu
kan ko siyang itayo pero.. "wag mo namang sabihin yan, Dana.. Ang sakit eh.. Tin
itiis ko na laging wala sa tabi mo kasi alam kong baka mas masaktan ka pag nakit
a mong kasama ko si Ynna. Alam mo ba kung gano kasakit na wala ka na naman sa ta
bi ko?? Palagi na lang ganito, lagi na lang may dahilan para hindi kita makasama
. Pero wala akong pakielam sa lahat ng dahilan na yun, Dana. Alam mo kung bakit?

Kasi mahal kita."

Nakaluhod pa din siya sa harap ko habang sinasabi yun, "mahal din naman kita. Pe
ro parang palaging may mali.."

Tinignan niya ako, "mahal kita, mahal mo ako. Walang mali dun.."

Nagsalita ako, "pero ako? Sa tingin mo ba ayos lang ako dun, ha, Cyriel? Naisip
mo ba yung nararamdaman ko??"

Hinawakan niya yung kamay ko, "sandali na lang, Dana. Hintayin mo ako.. Sandali
na lang.."

"Nakapaghintay ako ng halos dalawang taon, Cyriel. Sa tingin mo hindi ko kayang


maghintay ng ilang buwan? Of course i can! Pero hindi yun ang tanong.. Ang tanon
g, kung hindi pa ba ako napapagod.. because frankly speaking, i'm getting tired.
"

Akala ko nagkamali lang ako ng tingin na may pumatak na luha galing sa mata ni C
yriel.. Pero mali pala ako.. Totoo nga.. Umiiyak siya dahil sa'kin.. Unang beses
ko siyang nakitang umiyak.. at ako pa ang dahilan. Tama pa ba yung ginagawa nam
in? Palagi na lang may nasasaktan, may umiiyak.

Nagsalita siya, "Dana, mahal kita. Hindi ko alam kung alam mo pero, ikaw lang an
g sinabihan ko niyan. Ni hindi ang mama ko, ni hindi si Ariza, o kahit sino mang
babaeng makikilala ko. Ikaw lang, Dana. Nung sinabi ko sa'yo na mahal kita, ser
yoso ako. Nung sinabi ko sa'yo na mahal kita, binigay ko na sa'yo yung karapatan
para pasayahin o saktan ako. Nung sinabi ko sa'yo na mahal kita, umasa ako na m
agiging masaya ako. Pero kahit ganito yung nangyayari ngayon, wala akong pakiela
m. Wala akong pakielam kahit saktan mo ako.. kasi alam ko na kahit gaano mo ako
saktan, ikaw lang din naman yung makakapagpasaya sa akin.."

Hindi ako makapagsalita. Hindi ko alam yung sasabihin ko.. Ngayon ko lang nakita
si Cyriel na ganito.. Na parang ang hina hina niya.. Totoo nga siguro yung sina
bi niya na kaya ko siyang saktan kasi sa nakikita ko ngayon? Sobrang nasasaktan
na siya.. dahil sa akin..

Lumuhod din ako para magpantay kami, "kung nasasaktan ka na, nasasaktan din ako.
. Siguro dapat na tayong tumigil. Hindi mo ba napapansin? Walang sumasaya sa gin
agawa natin, Cy. Nasasaktan tayo, nagsisinungaling tayo sa parents natin, kahit
na.. kahit na si Ynna nasasaktan din. Siguro eto na yung sinasabi nilang sign..
yung pahiwatig na dapat na tayong tumigil kasi--"

Hindi ako kasi hinalikan


hree days para patunayan
na mahal natin ang isa't
agkatapos nito, i'll let

niya ako, "one last chance, Dana. Three days. Give me t


sa'yo na hindi mali yung ginagawa natin, na hindi mali
isa. Just these three days, Dana. Kung ayaw mo pa din p
you go. Kahit mahirap, papakawalan kita.."

-three days after-

"Where are you going, young lady?" mom said as she opened the door.

Nagkalat kasi yung damit ko sa kama. Inaayos ko yung gamit ko for my trip, a tri
p with Cyriel. I have no slightest idea where we are going pero i still said yes
. Why? Because i am hoping, hoping na maayos namin 'to. What we have is precious
to me kaya kung kayang ayusin, pilit kong aayusin..

"Holiday, mom. Hectic schedule, i need a break," i lied.

"In the middle of the semester? Can't you postpone that trip, Dana? Graduating k
a na next sem!" She exclaimed.

Yeah. Graduating na ako next sem. I took advance courses kaya 3.5 years na lang
ang course ko. Since third year na ako, kailangan ko na lang ng on the job train

ing, portfolio and manuscript to graduate.

"Naka schedule na po. Besides, three days lang. Just three short days, mom. Afte
r this, i'll be back to normal," i said.

Normal as in ayos na ulit kami ni Cyriel or normal as in ako na lang mag isa, li
ke how i was nung iniwan niya ako. Either way, sana lahat maging masaya.. becaus
e we all deserve it. We all do.

"Alright, if that's what you want. Where are you going?"

"Somewhere South perhaps? Basta, i'll text you the location," i replied.

She sighed, "looks like everything has been planned. Just take care of yourself.
"

Umalis na si mom and naiwan ako sa room. Haay. Kaya natin 'to, Cy. I hope that w
hatever happens, it's for the best.

-St. Claire's-

I went to our school to pass a project. Since 3 p.m. pa naman ako susunduin ni C
y, i decided na hanapin muna either si Sara, Kim, or Nof.

"Hey, D," naramdaman kong may tumabi sa'kin. Si Josh pala, "what happened last t
ime? Never saw you come back."

I smiled apologetically, "sorry for that. I totally forgot."

"That's cool, no need to apologize. Anyhow, was that Clarence's brother? The one
who approached you last time?"

I nodded, "yup. He's his brother, Cyriel."

"I see. He's familiar, i think we have met somewhere," he said.

I replied, "you're sure? Well maybe you saw him with Clarence."

He shrugged, "maybe you're right. Either way, i think i'll get going. I'll be la
te for my class," he gathered his things, "i'll collect later, D."

I smiled. Josh talaga. Ayaw kalimutan yung date. Sabagay, one hundred thousand d
in yun!

"Bakit ka nakangiti?" bigla na lang dumating si Kim at Nof sa harap ko.

"Kasalanang ngumiti?" i retorted, "nasan na ulit si Sara? Don't tell me exams pa


din niya? Grabe naman yun!"

Ito talaga yung times na masaya akong nagshift ako. Accountancy was hell. I reme
mber my sleepless nights nung freshman pa ako. I would trade that for anything i
n this world!

"Nope," Nof said, popping the 'p', "ni snatch ni Dave. Kasama namin siya kanina
eh, then dumating si Dave. And the rest is history."

Ooh. She's with Dave pala. Buti pa ang besty ko, tahimik na tahimik lang ang lov
elife. Kailan kaya ako magkakaroon ng ganun? Sana soon. Gusto ko na ng katahimik
an, i'm turning 20 this December. Gusto ko na ng tahimik at seryoso na relations
hip. Ayoko na sa complications.

"Speaking of Dave, ano nangyari dun?" i asked. Umorder si Kim since nasa caf kam
i ngayon.

She shrugged, "the usual. Pero napilitan siyang magtrain sa company nila. Alam m
o na, tagapagmana eh. Hahaha!"

Oo nga pala. We all share the same fate. Puro kami tagapagmana ng businesses ng
parents namin. Hindi naman sa nagrereklamo ako, ang taas lang kasi ng pressure a
ng expectations. Hindi lang mula sa parents mo pero pati na din sa mga tao na na
gttrabaho sa inyo. Hindi madali yun. Kaya naiinis ako sa mga tao na binabalewala
lang yung ganung bagay. Ang tanga kasi nila, selfish pa. Hindi lang sila ang na
hihirapan, pati yung mga tao na nakaasa sa company nila.

"Yeah, right. Pero okay lang naman kay Dave di ba?"

She nodded, "of course. Alam mo naman yun, the good son. Plus nagpromise si Tito
na papayag na siyang magpropose si Dave kay Sara once na maging stable ang comp
any under Dave's management. Ang galing noh?"

Napatingin ako kay Nof. She has a genuine smile. Naka move on na nga siya kay Da
ve. Good for her. Ang hirap kasi ng madami kang hang ups sa past mo, nakakabaliw
.

"That's great! Ang ganda talaga ng best friend ko!"

"Oo nga eh. Pero wag kang maingay kay Sara, ha? Secret lang yun sabi ni Dave."

I nodded, "alright. Grabe talaga yang si Dave! Pag nakita ko yan. Naku!"

"Anong meron?" tanong ni Kim nung umupo siya.

"Wala. Panget mo, pinapaalala ko lang kay DK," sabi ni Nof habang kinuha niya yu
ng frapp niya kay Kim.

"Akin na nga yan! Nilibre ka na't lahat inaaway mo pa din ako!!"

Natawa ako. Best friends nga naman.

"Anyways, kamusta kayo ni Clarence, Kim?" i asked. Halata ba na clueless ako? Hi

ndi ako nakapagparamdam for two weeks sa kanila. Pure acads mode ako last, last
week.

She blushed, "kami pa din ni boyfie!" she chirped.

"Ew. Disgusting. Buti hindi ka pa iniiwan ni Clarence. Kakairita yang boses mo,"
sabi ni Nof.

Habang nag aaway sila, nagvibrate naman yung phone ko.

From: Cy Edrian Perez


San ka? I'm here at the parking lot.

I stood up, "una na ko."

"San ka pupunta?"

I smiled, "may aayusin lang."

Aayusin ko ang sa amin ni Cyriel.

Ynna's Point of View

"How are you feeling, honey?" mom asked me while i was lying on my bed.

"I-i'm fine, mom. I had tons of painkiller," i lied.

It hurts. It actually hurts too much. It has been more than two years since i kn
ew about my condition. I already prepared myself for whatever is going for me..
But i never thought it would hurt this much. This is too much for me..

"Are you sure? You look pale," mom said. She's worried for me. She's been receiv
ing a lot of stress from dad's campaign, yet here i am, giving her more problems
than she could handle.

"I am okay, mom. Really. It's part for the illness. The pale skin, the bruises,
the lost of weight, everything. You should not worry about me, mom. I accepted t
his long time ago," i lied again.

I can't ever accept the fact that i am dying. All my dreams have been shattered
the moment i knew about this..

She's crying again, "i'll just get something to eat."

She went out. She doesn't want me to see her cry. It pains her, but it devastate

s me. She's my mom..

"Ynna?" i looked at the one who spoke and saw Cyriel.

"Cyriel," i said his name weakly.

"Kamusta ka?" he said as he sat on the couch near my bed.

"Same old, dying," i cracked a joke.

He frowned. I don't know if i will blame him for making me this way.. this pathe
tic. He's been there through everything. I know that i just forced him to stay w
ith me. But he never let me feel that i gave him no option, he just stayed by my
side. He's been my strength through all the mysery i encountered. I thought i a
lready love him.. But i was wrong.. because i fell in love even more.

"Painkillers?"

I nodded, "know what, Cy? I have something amazing to tell you!"

"What?"

I smiled, "i have cancer as well! Stage 2. Amazing, right? Instead of having to
stay with me for eight years, siguro kahit two years na lang. Two years na lang,

Cy. Kaya mo naman sigurong ibigay sa'kin yun, di ba?"

I tried to laugh but he hugged me, "wag kang ganyan, Ynna. Niloloko mo lang ako
eh! Si Dana pa din ang mahal ko kahit magka cancer, tuberculosis, o leukemia ka
pa! Wag mo naman akong lokohin!"

I silently shed a tear, "sana nga nagloloko lang ako, Cyriel. Sana nga wala akon
g sakit, sana nga hindi ako nahihirapan ng ganito. Sana nga may lakas ako para i
paglaban ka kay Dana, na agawin ka sa kanya. Pero hindi eh.. I got these, all of
these," i said then i burst into tears.

I let myself cry everything out. I cannot cry in front of my mother. I just cann
ot risk giving her another pain. She's all i got, she's the person i know who wi
ll not let me down even if the whole world turned their backs against me.

"Ssh," he said while caressing my back. Now, can you blame me for loving him thi
s much?!

"Cyriel.. please don't leave me.. I can't live through all these without you.. p
lease.. kahit naaawa ka lang sa'kin, don't leave me.. I'm begging you.." i said,
forgetting my pride, forgetting my dignity. Cyriel is all i need.

"I'm sorry, Ynna. Si Dana talaga ang mahal ko.. I made a lot of wrong decisions
before and i lost her because of that.. Hindi ko na kakayanin pag nawala pa siya
sa'kin. I can't lose her again.. Not now, not ever.."

I forced myself to stop crying, "you can't leave me just yet, Cy! Is two years t
hat much?! I'm dying! Siguro nga hindi na ako aabot ng two years! Kahit yun hind
i mo kayang pagbigyan?!"

Lumuhod siya sa harap ko, "please, Ynna. Please let me go.. kailangan mo ako per
o kailangan ko si Dana.. I just can't watch her slip away from me, it kills me t
o see her drift away! Sabi nga nila palagi na lang akong nagbibigay.. Hindi ba p
wedeng kahit ngayon ako naman? Hindi ba pwedeng sundin ko naman yung gusto ko? H
indi ba pwedeng kami muna na ni Dana?"

I threw the vase across the wall, "lagi na lang Dana, Dana, Dana!! What does she
have na wala ako?! Ano bang meron siya para magkaganyan ka, Cyriel?!! Nandito a
ko! Nandito ako sa harap mo pero hindi mo ako makita kita! Just for once, can't
you see me, Cy? Kahit isang beses lang??"

"I-i'm sorry, Ynna.. I can't be the guy you need. Sorry kung hindi ko maibigay y
ung gusto mo. God knows how much i tried to forget her para lang matutunan kang
mahalin para lang sumaya ka! But.. i just can't. I love her too much. I gave her
my heart, at wala akong planong bawiin yun.."

I can't take it anymore.

It hurts.. it fcking hurts like hell..

"Just leave me alone."

**

Dana's Point of View

"Cy!" i called out to get his attention. Para spaced out siya eh.

Napatingin siya sa direction ko, "kanina ka pa?"

I shook my head, "kakadating ko lang. Where are we going?"

I tried my best to forget all our problems. Gusto ko ngayong trip namin, siya la
ng at ako. Kami lang. Walang Ynna, walang problema. Si Dana at Cyriel bago nagul
o ang lahat. Siguro naman madali lang yun, di ba?

"Batangas? Nagpareserve ako sa resort dun. Ayos lang?" he said and showed me his
boyish smile.

I smiled back at him, "Batangas sounds good. Anyways, nasan ang sasakyan mo?" i
asked. Tinignan ko na yung parking lot for any sign of his red ferrari.

He shook his head, "we don't need that. Commute tayo."

"WHAT??" i said in hysterics.

Napatawa naman siya sa reaction ko. And what is wrong with him?? Commute?? I kno
w i used to use public transportation before pero.. the moment i got my license,
i never had the chance to commute. And i won't ever do that again if i could! I
always get chills pag naaalala ko yung kwento sa akin nung blocmate ko about sa
magboyfriend na magkayakap sa jeepney and turned out na sinaksak pala nung guy
yung girl. It's just.. way too creepy. Ayoko nang sumakay ng jeepney or any othe
r form of public transpo since then. I won't take the risk.

"Ayaw mo nun, may libreng yakap ka sa'kin pag inaantok ka?" he said with that fa
miliar smug look on his face. Nagiging kamukha niya si Clarence pag ganun.

I sighed, "ano pa nga ba ang magagawa ko?"

He held my hand, "promise i will make this memorable, Dana."

It better be, Cyriel. I'll hold onto that.

Andy's Point of View

"Aw! Aw! Aw!"

Aish. Bakit ba tahol ng tahol si Berdy ngayon? Kita ng pagod na pagod ako sa tra
baho ko. Ginawa akong errand boy nung sila Glorie! Hanep na mga babae yun! Amazo
na!! Pasalamat sila at gwapo ako, kundi.. aish! Gwapo ako walang may karapatang
umangal!

Lumapit ako kay Berdy at kinausap ko siya, "Berdy naman, pagod na nga si Andylic
ious mo sa trabaho dahil dun sa kaaway mo na si Glorie tapos aawayin mo pa ako p
agdating sa bahay. Napaka inconsiderate mo naman na girlfriend.. Akala ko iba ka
kay Dana.."

Aish! Bakit ba nasali si Dana sa usapan?? Bura bura! Nakaka 20% na nga ako sa mo
ving on eh. Punyemas! Bakit may move on move on pa akong nalalaman ngayon?? Naba
bading na yata ako sa pagsama sama dun kila Glorie!! Buti na lang at nandun si L
awrence at may nakakausap ako na lalaki kahit papano!

"Aw, aw, aw.."

Naglalambing na si Berdy. Nako, Andy! Baka naman may sakit si Berdy?? Aish!

Lumapit ako kay Berdy at umupo sa harap niya, "o siya, o siya, dadalhin na kita
sa doctor. Spoiled ka talaga."

Nagpalit lang ako ng damit at nagready na na umalis. Ang lamig na dito! Sabagay,
magpapasko na kasi. Ibig sabihin, malapit na din ang birthday ni Dana.. Andy, u
mayos ka! Sapakin kaya kita?! Tsk. Nababaliw na ako. Delikado 'to.

Sumakay na ako sa sasakyan ko. Huh! Mahal talaga ako ng nanay ko kasi nakuha ko
ang pinakamamahal na BMW ni kuya Andrew! Ni hindi pa nga niya 'to nagagamit eh.
Iba na talaga ang bunsong anak.. idagdag mo pa ang ka gwapuhan ko.

"Eto na siguro 'yun," sabi ko nung tumigil ako sa isang veterinary clinic. Tama
naman siguro since sinunod ko lang naman yung GPS eh.

-Dandy Veterinary Clinic-

Pumasok ako sa loob, "is the doctor there?"

"Yes, she's inside." sabi nung nurse tapos nagpacute siya. Hmm, nurse Em Em. Sor
ry, kasama ko girlfriend ko. Possessive to eh. Haha!

Pumasok ako sa loob, "good afternoon. I am Dr. Emione Herrera, what can i do for
you?"

Nakanang! Pati ba naman doctora dito, chicks?! Kung matagal ko nang nalaman 'to
eh di sana dito na ako nag high school at college!

"Ah-eh, my dog's sick," bigla namang tumahol si Berdy. Sensitive talaga, ayaw ng
natawag na aso, gusto girlfriend.

"Where's your dog?"

Binuhat ko naman si Berdy at ipinatong sa lamesa, "uh, can i got out for a while
?"

Ngumiti yung Dra. Emione. Leche! Tukso, stalker ba kita?? Lagi mo akong sinusund
an!

"Sure, go ahead, Mr..?"

"Louie, Louie Guzman," sabi ko tapos inextend ko yung kamay ko para makipagshake
hands.

Ngumiti lang siya, "sure then, Louie."

Lumabas na ako ng clinic bago pa kami maging apat dun. Ay, potek! Nagiging lumot
na naman ang utak ko! Pumunta nga muna ako sa kainan. Hmm. Nagugutom na ako. La
gi na lang pizza o kung anuman na microwavable ang kinakain ko. Gusto ko ng kani
n!!

Pumasok ako sa Daniel's. Nice. Puro pasta pala ang sineserve dito. Okay na din k
aysa frozen pizza. Tangina. Isang buwan akong hindi kakain ng pizza! Masuka suka
na ako kahit maisip ko lang yun!!

Umupo ako sa table katabi ng window para wala lang. Para makita ako ng mga dadaa
n para sumaya naman ang araw nila dahil nakakita sila ng gwapo. Ang bait ko tala
ga kahit kailan!

"Can i get your--- Louie?? Oh my God! You're here!!"

(-_-)

Inalog alog niya pa ako, "i can't believe it!!" tumingin siya sa paligid ko, "yo
u're not with Berdy?? Finally!! Some lone time with Louie," she chirped.

Nakakairita. Kailan ba ako tatantanan ng babaeng to??

59th Chapter (1 of 3)

Dana's Point of View

Whoa. Paradise on earth.

"Paano mo 'to nalaman, Cy?" I asked him. Na mesmerize kasi ako sa ganda ng lugar
! It's so breathe taking!

He spoke habang binababa niya yung gamit ko. Pinagbuhat ko siya ng gamit ko! Chi
valry at its finest, "nung nagsscout si Papa ng pag iinvest-an na resort, we fou
nd this. Ang ganda, noh?"

I nodded, "so, share-holder kayo dito?"

"I think so. Ewan ko kung tinuloy ni Papa. Pero member kami dito, by membership
lang kasi ang nakakapunta dito," sabi niya.

Tinignan ko naman 'yung lugar. Karamihan foreigner. Siguro winter na sa kanila k

aya nagpunta na sila sa Pilipinas? First class resort! Hindi ko naman akalain na
dito kami pupunta! Wala akong dalang bikini! Tsk!

Pumasok kami sa parang hotel. Ewan. Naghahanap pa kaya sila ng investors? Pipili
tin ko si dad na mag invest dito! Or kahit membership na lang!

Pinakita ni Cyriel yung membership card niya, "this way, sir," sabi nung recepti
onist.

Lumapit sa amin yung isang bellboy at kinuha yung gamit ko from Cy. Mabigat din
yun since ilang damit, sapatos, and toiletries ang nakalagay dun! After kunin ng
bellboy yung gamit, hinawakan ni Cy yung kamay ko. Nagulat ako kasi hindi na ak
o sanay.. pero napatingin ako sa kanya tapos nginitian niya ako. Nginitian ko na
din siya.

'We can do this, Cy.'

Akala ko papasok kami ng elevator since nasa taas ang rooms pero papalabas na ka
mi ng hotel eh?

"Uh, excuse me, san tayo papunta?" i asked the bellboy.

Hindi naman kasi naimik si Cy kahit palabas na kami. Busy kasi siya na paglaruan
yung kamay ko. Binibilang pa niya, as if naman magkukulang yung daliri ko? Samp
u yan kahit anong bilang ang gawin niya. (-_-)

"Sa VIP place po," sabi niya. Parang hiyang hiya naman sa akin ang bellboy na 't
o!

Tumahimik na ako at nakisunod na lang sa nilalakaran namin. Nakarating kami sa p


arang secluded place from the resort. Tahimik lang dito since puro bars and rest
o yung sa main part ng resort. Iba't ibang cabins yung nandito, siguro about twe
nty lang?

Lumapit siya sa parang isang cabin tapos inabot sa amin yung keycard, "enjoy you
r stay here, ma'am and sir!"

Binigyan siya ng tip ni Cy after niyang ipasok sa cabin yung gamit namin. This i
s.. too much! Ang ganda sa loob! Pumunta ako sa round sofa and lie down.

"Enjoy?" tanong ni Cy.

I beamed, "asa ka. It's just the beginning. Show me what you got, Perez," then i
winked.

Umiling iling siya habang pinipigilang tumawa.

Nagpahinga muna kami since napagod ako sa byahe! Almost three hours siguro kamin
g nasa bus since traffic pa sa Ortigas! Tapos nag taxi pa kami papunta dito sa r
esort. I'm really beat. I'll sleep.

**

Cyriel's Point of View

Nakatulog na pala siya. Lumapit ako tapos binuhat ko siya papunta sa kwarto niya
. Ibinaba ko siya ng dahan dahan tapos tinanggal ko yung mga buhok na nakahawi s
a mukha niya.

"Mahal na mahal kita, Dana. Sana maniwala ka na ngayon," sabi ko as i kissed her
temple.

Iniwan ko si Ynna kahit na nagmamakaawa siya sa akin. May sakit siya pero nagawa
ko pa din siyang saktan.. She's a good friend pero pag si Dana na yung mawawala
sa'kin, kahit sino ipagpapalit ko.

Inayos ko yung pagkakahiga sa kanya tapos nilagyan ko siya ng comforter at tinan


ggal ko yung sapatos niya. Naupo muna ako sa bedside niya since ang tagal ko nan
g pangarap na makasama ulit siya ng ganito. Yung ganito lang, walang problema o
kahit ano pa man.

Tinignan ko siya, yung mata niya na mas lalo akong nahuhulog pag tinitignan niya
ako. Na mas nasasaktan ako pag umiiyak siya, na nababaliw ako pag tumitingin si
ya sa iba. Yung buhok niya na namiss kong hawakan at amuyin tuwing nakatabi siya
sa'kin. Yung kamay niya na gusto kong ako lang ang hahawak, yung mukha niya na
hinding hindi ako magsasawa tignan kahit kailan. Hindi ko akalain na yung mga ga
nitong bagay na hindi ko napapansin dati ay mamimiss ko ng sobra sobra.

Tumayo na ako at pumunta sa kusina. Nagpareserve na ako nung isang linggo pa kay
a maayos na lahat dito sa cabin. Nagsabi din ako na punuin nila ng groceries yun
g fridge kaya walang problema.

Nagluto ako tutal hindi ko pa yata napagluluto si Dana kahit nung dati pa. Ang d
ami kong hindi nagawa na gustung gusto kong gawin ngayon. Kaya ngayon na may pag

kakataon ako, susulitin ko na. Gagawin ko lahat at ipapakita ko kung gaano ko si


ya kamahal.

**

Dana's Point of View

Haaaaaaaaay. Ang sarap ng tulog ko.

Nagstretching muna ako tapos napatingin ako sa wallclock, "11:30 na??"

Napatayo naman ako ng wala sa oras! Napansin ko na nasa kwarto na ako. Binuhat s
iguro ako ni Cy? Bakit naman gabi na agad! 6:30 lang kanina nung natulog ako eh!
Sayang naman! Tatlong araw lang kami tapos natulog pa ako nung unang araw!

Lumabas ako ng room para hanapin si Cy. Nakita ko siyang natutulog sa sofa haban
g nakaupo.

"Tss," lumapit ako tapos inayos ko siya ng higa. Baka magka stiff neck pa kasi s
iya sa posisyon niya!

Hinanap ko naman yung kitchen since nagugutom na ako. Siguro naman may stock na
kahit junkies o chips man lang dun! Nagugutom na kasi ako since yung kinain pa n
amin nila Kim yung last na kain ko!

Nung nakarating ako sa kitchen, "Cyriel naman eh.." Hindi ko napigilang ma touch
sa ginawa niya. May nakahanda kasi na dinner para sa aming dalawa. Sobrang nag
eeffort talaga siya para sa amin!

Kanina pa niya siguro 'to niluto since mukhang malamig na yung buttered chicken.
Kahit hindi kami magkasama dati, alam niya pa din yung gusto ko..

Nilagay ko sa microwave lahat ng niluto niya. Hindi kasi ako marunong magluto. D
apat ba pag babae marunong agad magluto? Hindi naman! Sexist lang eh!

Inayos ko ulit yung table at naglagay ako ng bagong plate and utensils pati grav
y and orange juice. Nung natapos na ako, binalikan ko si Cyriel sa living room.

"Cy, Cy," sabi ko habang tinatapik tapik ko siya.

"Hmm?" sabi niya, half asleep. Nakapikit pa kasi yung mata niya, "wake up, kain
tayo?" i said.

Dinilat niya yung mata niya tapos ngumiti.

Na self conscious naman ako sa ngiti niya! May dumi ba yung mukha ko? Titig na t
itig siya eh!

"Uh, may mali ba sa mukha ko?" i asked.

He smiled tapos inayos niya yung upo siya, "nah. I just realized how happy i wou
ld be kung mukha mo ang makikita ko pag gising ko araw araw."

Napaubo naman ako. Geez, Dana! Get a grip of yourself! Wag kang obvious kiligin,
please!

I smiled awkwardly at him, "of course, ang ganda ko kaya," tapos inoffer ko yung
kamay ko, "kain tayo?"

He gladly held my hand tapos sabay kaming pumunta sa dining table.

"Favorite mo 'to, di ba?" he asked while we're eating.

I nodded, "yup. Anything chicken related," then i chew a spoonful of rice.

Ngumiti siya sa akin, "ang dumi mong kumain," tapos nag lean forward siya at pin
unasan yung side ng lips ko tapos kiniss niya.

O-kay! What's with him? Hindi ako sanay na showy siya!

"Cyriel.."

"Hmm?"

"Can i ask you something?"

He smiled, "ano yun?"

I was fidgetting to ask but, "...are you dying?"

Nabulunan naman siya sa narinig niya sa akin.

"Oh!"

Binigyan ko siya ng orange juice. May mali ba sa tanong ko? Kasi.. naninibago ta
laga ako sa kanya! Naging showy ba si Cyriel dati? I mean siguro? I can't rememb
er. Vague memories are all i remember. Or ako lang talaga yung may kasalanan kas
i naiilang ako?

I was taken back to reality nung binaba ni Cyriel yung baso niya table, "okay ka
na?" i worriedly asked. Nawala halos yung kulay sa mukha niya. Ganun ba ka grab
e yung tanong ko?

"O-okay lang," sabi niya, still catching his breathe, "bakit mo nga pala nasabi
yun? Do i look like dying?"

Nahihiya naman ako sa sasabihin ko, "ah-eh, naninibago lang kasi ako. Entirely m
y fault.. sorry, Cy."

Ngumiti lang siya sa akin, "let's just forget about it. From now on, masanay ka
na kasi i'll prove to you my love. Our forever will start today," he said then k
issed my knuckles.

Kumain na kami after nun. Ang sarap talaga magluto ni Cy! Prospect husband? Afte
r naming kumain, nilagay na namin sa dishwasher yung pinagkainan namin.

I yawned. Past 12 a.m. na pala?

"Inaantok ka na?" he asked.

I shook my head, "hindi pa eh, besides kakakain lang natin. Do you mind strollin
g around?"

He shrugged, "not if you'll hold my hand while walking."

I smirked, "ganon na ba ako kaganda para maging ganyan ka showy ang isang Cyriel
Edrian Perez?"

He shrugged again, "hindi eh.. Ganun lang talaga kita kamahal kaya ganito ako."

O-kay. Sabi ko nga hindi na ako magsasalita eh.

Naglakad kami sa shore while holding hands. Tahimik lang kami, sharing silence b
etween us. After quite sometime, bumalik na din kami sa cabin, "good night, Cy."

"Good night, Dana. See you later."

And with that, i slept with a smile on my face and contented heart.

Andy's Point of View

"What do you want, Louie?" tapos binigay niya yung menu.

(-_-)

Ang ingay talaga ng Glorie na 'to, oh! Akala ko pa naman magkaka silence and sol
itude na ako dito eh!

"I want you out of my sight," sabi ko. Kinuha ko yung laptop ko tapos binuksan.
Hmm.

Pinalo niya yung braso ko. Sus. Chansing.

"Louie, you're being Mr. Grumpy again!!" she whined.

Ang ingay ng babae na 'to!!

"Give me carbonara, French toast, and uhm, silence," sabi ko tapos sinarado ko y
ung menu.

Nagpout naman siya. Tss! Akala mo cute hindi naman!

Nag log in muna ako sa FB. Ang dami namang nag aadd sa akin ngayon. Mga babae ta
laga oh, nakita lang na single na ang relationship status ko, grabe na kung maka
add as friend at comment. Pati lahat ng status ko nillike. Haaay. Dahil ba sing
le ako o gwapo lang talaga ako?

Nag sign in din ako sa skype. Hmm. Di naman online si mommy o kuya Andrew. -_-

Mag ssign out sana ako nung nakita kong ininvite ako ni Nof sa video call. 'Tong
baboy na 'to ngayon lang nagparamdam. Tsk.

Inaccept ko yung invitation niya tapos, "Guzman!!"

Aish. Napatingin naman yung mga tao sa resto sa akin. Eskandalosa talaga 'tong b
aboy na 'to! Nagsuot nga ako ng earplugs. Kahiya eh. -_-

"Ingay mo, kahiya ka talaga."

Dinilaan niya ako, "ilang buwan ka ng hindi nagparamdam tapos ang panget mo pa d
in."

"Tss. Magddalawang buwan pa lang namiss mo na ang ka gwapuhan ko," sabi ko.

"Kapal mo. Kay Dave at Cyriel pa lang okay na ko eh," sabi niya.

Cyriel nga pala. Kamusta na sila ni Dana? Haaay. Hindi pa din talaga ako nakakal
imot. Si Lynne kasi iniwan ako kaya kung anu ano nangyari sa buhay ko. Kung hind
i kaya 'yun nangyari masaya kaya kami ngayon? Pamilya kaya kami ni baby AJ ngayo
n? Tsk. Dami mong alam, Guzman! Tapos na eh, wala nang magagawa. Enjoy na lang s
a chickas dito sa Miami!

"Iba pa din ang kagwapuhan ni Andrei Louie Guzman," sabi ko tapos uminom ng tubi
g. Ang tagal naman ng inorder ko. Bagal talaga ng Glorie na 'yun. -_-

"Oo na, oo na. Pilay ka pa din ba?" sabi niya.

Inayos ko yung laptop tapos tumayo ako para ipakita sana na nakakalakad na ulit

ako pero---

"I'm so sorry, Louie!!" tapos pinunasan niya ako.

-_-'

"Aish. Clumsy as always," sabi ko sa kanya. Itapon daw ba sa damit ko yung carbo
nara??

Nagpout siya tapos nangingilid yung luha niya, "i-i'm really sorry, Louie," tapo
s yumuko siya, "i didn't mean it.. it was an accident.. i'm sorry.."

Aish! Bakit naiiyak 'to??

Lumapit ako tapos, "it's fine. As if i'm not yet used to you being clumsy," tapo
s tinignan niya ako. Tsk. Naiiyak pala talaga siya. Pinunasan ko yung luha niya,
"it's fine. I have extra shirt in my car. Just get me another order, alright?"

Nag nod siya tapos kinuha ko yung extra shirt ko at nagpalit. Pagbalik ko sa tab
le, "nice. Goodbye, Dana ka na pala, Andy. Sino yung brunette?" sabi ni Nof.

"Ah yun ba? Si Glorie," sabi ko.

"New girl?"

Natawa naman ako, "hahaha! Seryoso ka, piggy? Nakita mo ba kung gaano ka clumsy
yun?? Mamaya mamatay ako agad sa pagka careless nun eh. Tsk."

Nag shrug siya, "a strong negative is a positive."

"Dami mong alam, piggy."

"You'll never know, Guzman. You might see yourself falling hard," sabi niya.

Pwe! Hindi nga? Andy and Glorie? Haha! Ano 'yun, joke??

Nagseryoso ako kunwari, "hindi din. May girlfriend na ako eh."

Halos mabulunan naman si Nof sa narinig niya. Kumakain kasi siya. Baboy talaga.
-_-

"TALAGA??"

"Tsk. Bawal ba akong magka girlfriend?" sabi ko.

Kinalma niya yung sarili niya, "hindi nga? Sino? Ano'ng pangalan? Kailan pa kayo
??"

Hmm, "si Berdy. Ano, wala pa kaming one week eh."

Tinaas niya yung kilay niya, "berdy? Weird naman ng pangalan niya."

"Hindi din. Possessive yun eh, mahal na mahal ako." totoo naman. Halos nakatabi
na nga sa akin matulog si berdy. Buti hindi ko nadadaganan yun.

Tinitigan niya ako, "seryoso ka sa kanya?" tumango ako, "oh? Asan siya ngayon? P
wede kong makita?"

"Nasa doctor eh," sabi ko. Kamusta na kaya si berdy? Okay naman siguro. Mukha ma
bait naman si Dr. Emione eh tsaka sexy pa! Oha! Hahaha!

"Bakit?"

"Ah-eh," hindi ko naman pwedeng sabihin na aso si berdy kasi baka pagtawanan ako
nito, "masama pakiramdam. Nahihilo at nagsusuka."

"Oh my God, Andy!! Oh my God!!"

Ha? Ano bang mali sa sinabi ko???

"Hoy, piggy. Anong oh my god ka jan? May mali ba sa---"

OH BAKIT NAWALA??? Black out ba sa Pilipinas??

**

Dana's Point of View

"Dana.."

"Hmm.."

"Dana.."

Sino ba 'to? Inaantok pa ako eh..

"Dana Kathryn Ferrer- Perez, gising ka na.." tapos naramdaman ko na may naglalar
o sa buhok ko.

I tried to open my eyes but to no avail since i am still sleepy. What time is it
anyways?

"I'm still sleepy, Cy.." i whined.

Hinapalos niya naman yung mukha ko, "gising ka na, please? Nood tayo ng sunrise.
Tulog ulit after nun? Please, Dana Kathryn Ferrer- Perez?"

Kahit na nakapikit ako, na iimagine ko yung mukha ni Cy habang sinasabi niya yun
g pangalan ko with his last name attached to it. I can't help but smile, he's re
ally adorable!

"Fine, Cyriel Edrian Perez. Pasalamat ka.."

He asked me, "pasalamat ako, ano?"

"Pasalamat ka gwapo ka," then i stuck out my tongue.

Natawa naman siya sa akin. Pumasok ako sa cr at nag ayos. Grabe naman! 4:30 pa l
ang pala. No wonder inaantok pa din ako. Nag ayos ako ng sarili ko. Nakakahiya n
aman kasi, ang gwapo ng kasama ko tapos mukha akong basura? No effin way!

After couple of minutes, lumabas na ako sa cr, "here."

Tumayo siya at sinuot sa akin yung jacket, "thanks. You don't have to do this, C
y. Hindi ka naman ganito eh," i said.

"Hindi talaga ako ganito pero i want to be. I want to be the man who deserves yo
u. And you deserve only the best, Dana. Kaya gagawin ko ang lahat para maging th
e best.. because i want to be the guy you deserve," he said with a smile on his
face.

I smiled back at him, not saying anything.

Konti na lang.. i will fall in love again.. this time, harder.

59th Chapter (2 of 3)

I woke up around 9 a.m. since halos 6 a.m. na yata kami nakabalik ni Cy sa cabin
. Three hours lang halos ang tulog ko.

-flasback-

Napipikit ako habang naglalakad papunta sa kung saan man kami pupunta ng mapansi
n ni Cy, "bakit?" i asked. Tumigil kasi siya sa harap ko.

Tumalikod siya then said, "sakay ka?"

"For real?" i asked. Never once did i imagine na mag ooffer siya ng piggy back r
ide sa akin! I mean, si Cyriel na kulang na lang bigyan ng title na ice prince s
a sobrang katahimikan at pagiging suplado mag ooffer na sumakay ako sa likod niy
a?

He chuckled, "yes, for real."

Without a doubt, sumakay ako sa likod niya. It feels so.. right. I rested my hea
d on the side of his neck, familiarizing myself with his smell.

Naglakad siya papunta sa parang cliff where you can see the overview of the reso
rt. Ang ganda! Parang yung haven lang ni Cy sa Makati!

May nakahanda na na gamit dun, complete with cloth na inuupuan namin at konting
food.

I yawned.

"Inaantok ka?" he asked.

I nodded. Pinat niya yung lap niya tapos pinahiga niya ako dun. I smiled at him

habang nakatingin ako sa kanya while lying on his lap.

"Will you sing for me?" i asked.

"Nakantahan na kita dati," he replied.

"Oh? Kailan?" i asked. Nakantahan niya na ba ako dati? Imposible namang nakalimu
tan ko kung totoo nga! So malamang hindi pa.

"Nung nag away kayo ni Andy," he said.

Andy? Naalala ko na naman yun. Kamusta na kaya yun sa Cali? Siguro nambababae yu
n! Knowing Andy? Sure as hell na oo!

Napansin niya yata na hindi ko maalala, "hindi mo na pala maalala. Let me help y
ou," sabi niya tapos nginitian niya ako. And started singing.

-Would you look at her she looks at me, she's got me thinking about her constant
ly but she don't know how i feel.. As she carries on without a doubt, i wonder i
f she's figured it out. I'm crazy for this girl.. Yeah i'm crazy for this girl..
-

I smiled at him, "don't tell me i got you whipped that early? Hindi pa nga tayo
close nun eh!"

Hindi nga kami halos nag uusap nun eh! Hindi ba? Kaya nga siya si Mr. Sungit eh!

"One look and you got me," he said, "hindi ka pa nagsasalita, nakuha mo na ako.
That's how whipped i am, Dana. I'm fatally whipped."

I blushed. I just blushed in front of him!

He leaned closer since nakahiga ako sa lap niya and kissed my cheeks, "you make
me happy just by blushing. I love you."

I smiled back at him, "likewise, Cy."

Natulog muna ako then ginising niya ako nung magssunrise na, "Dana?"

"Hmm?"

"Gising na, sunrise na," he said.

I opened my eyes and looked over the horizon with him. Yung puyat? It's all wort
h it! Ang ganda ng sunrise!

Busy ako sa pag admire sa ganda ng sunrise ng mapansin ko na nakatingin sa'kin s


i Cy, "Dana.."

"Hmm?"

"Let's be together forever," he said, "sabi nila kung sino daw yung unang taong
makakasama mo sa pagnood sa pagsikat ng araw, yun daw ang makakasama mo habang b
uhay."

I looked at him and pinched his nose, "superstitious ka na pala eh!" i teased hi
m, "but kidding aside, if things are meant to be, it will be. Magtiwala lang tay
o, Cy. Always keep the faith."

-present-

"Cy?" i called out. Lumabas kasi ako sa kwarto at hinanap ko siya. He's nowhere
to be found. Nasan kaya 'yun?

Nagpunta ako ng kitchen para kumain since nagugutom na din naman ako. May nakita
akong note sa cupboard, "be back before 11 a.m. AKTF -Cy"

I get his note and kept it, minsan lang magbibigay ng note yan
Tinignan ko yung fridge, may nakalagay na na pagkain, nilagay
rowave. Kumain lang ako ng mabilis since balak kong pumunta sa
yon! Hindi naman siguro kami dumayo ng Batangas para magkulong

kaya dapat itago.


ko na lang sa mic
resort proper nga
sa cabin, di ba?

I wore my short shorts and a hanging blouse which hangs just above my belly butt
on. Since wala nga akong dalang bikini, I should buy later.

Nag ikot ikot ako sa resort! It was awesome! Too bad hindi ko dala ang SLR ko, s
ayang ang view! But that's fine, okay na siguro ang BB ko.

I sat on the of the stools since halos 11 a.m. na din. Kanina pa pala ako nag ii
kot ikot. Bumili din ako ng pasalubong kila Kim, Nof, Sara, Dave, at kila mom an
d dad. Bakit nga ba ako bumili? Hindi ko din naman pala sinabi sa kanila na magb
abakasyon ako. Tsk. Stupid me.

Sayang hindi ako nakapag banana boat ride o kahit anuman since wala si Cy. Ayoko
naman sumakay mag isa. Wag na lang. Bumalik ako ng cabin before 11 since sabi n
i Cy babalik siya. San kaya galing yun?

Pagpasok ko sa room, nandun na siya.

"Hey," nasabi ko na lang. Bigla niya kasi akong niyakap, "bakit?"

"Wala. Wala ka kasi pagdating ko, akala ko iniwan mo na ako. Wag mo na akong pan
sinin," he said habang nakayakap pa din sa akin.

I smiled to myself, "sus. Pumunta lang ako sa labas. I bought these," tapos tinu
ro ko yung hawak hawak ko na paperbags, "where were you, anyways? Wala ka nung p
ag gising ko eh," i said.

"May inayos lang. Kumain ka na?"

I nodded, "yup. Nag lunch na ako. Ikaw?"

"Hindi pa eh, samahan mo ako?"

So, bumalik lang din kami sa resort. Sinamahan kong kumain si Cy. After nun, nag
ikot ikot kami at nag banana boat ride! Hahaha! Ang saya! Tapos nag boating din
kami at zip line. Hindi nga lang nakapag scuba diving since ang daming naka lin
e up na din nung naisip namin. Bumalik kami sa cabin by 2.

"Alis tayo," sabi ni Cy.

"Where to?"

"Basta," he said and assured me with a smile.

Nagbihis ako ng sunday dress since ewan. Gusto ko lang. I wore a floras dress an
d flats. San kaya ako dadalin ni Cy? Nung makalabas kami ng resort, nakita ko yu
ng ferrari niya, "akala ko hindi mo dala?" i asked him.

"Hindi nga, pinasunod ko lang," he said tapos pinagbuksan niya ako ng pinto.

"San tayo pupunta?" i asked again. Naccurious kasi ako.

"Basta," sabi niya na naman. Better be sure na magugustuhan ko yung pupuntahan n

amin.

Natulog pala ako since nagising ako ay nakatigil na yung sasakyan, "nandito na t
ayo?"

He nodded, "yes. Shall we?"

Naglakad kami sa.. san nga ba 'to? Hindi ko din alam eh! Basta ang alam ko, para
siyang malaking garden na punung puno ng flowers. Malayo din siguro 'to since a
ng tahimik, "nasan tayo, Cy?"

"Caleruega."

I just nodded. Busy pa din kasi ako sa pag admire sa bulaklak na nakita ko sa da
an. Naglalakad kasi kami ngayon papunta sa hindi ko alam kung saan.

"Dito na tayo," he said.

"Sure ka, Cy?" i asked. Ang dami kasing tao sa chapel. May chapel pala dito sa g
arden! Ang ganda lang talaga, may ikakasal pa. Kailan kaya ako ikakasal? Sana yu
ng ganito din, yung dito gaganapin tapos ang invited lang ay yung mga tao na kil
ala ko talaga. Solemn wedding is all i ask for.

I was busy admiring the wedding when i saw Cy dropped on his knees, "marry me?"

**

Andy's Point of View

Pupuntahan ko na nga si Berdy. Halos isang oras ko na pala siyang iniwan dun. Ts
k. Tatahulan na naman ako nun mamaya! Nagger pa naman yun. Tsk.

Papunta na sana ako sa BMW ko nung may napansin ako sa gutter ng kalsada. Pamily
ar 'to ah?

Lumapit ako para tignan kung sino yun, mukha umiiyak kasi tapos.. si Glorie pala
yun! Pano ko nalaman? Eh kakaiba kasi yung itsura niya.. may Glorie vibes. Ay l
etche! Nababading na yata ako!

"Hey," sabi ko tapos naupo din ako sa gutter ng kalsada, "why are you crying?"

Nag sniff siya bago magsalita, "nothing, Louie. Sorry again for what happened.."

I smiled at her, baka nagguilty na naman 'to! Para isang carbonara at tshirt lan
g eh! "I told you it's fine. Don't worry," pag aassure ko sa kanya.

"Sorry again.."

"Why are you crying?" tanong ko sa kanya. Imposible namang iniyakan niya yung ka
nina? Eh hindi naman ako nagalit ah?? Di ba??

"I-it's nothing," sabi niya.

"Come on, nothing? You hardly can breath because of that then you say nothing?"

Tapos nag iiyak na siya, "i was fired. My boss said i am clumsy and i always cau
se trouble that's why he fired me," tapos umiyak siya ulit. Sus, nawalan lang ng
trabaho iyak na agad? Napakaiyakin naman nito!

"Why do you cry so much? It's just a job," sabi ko.

"It's not like that," sabi niya, "i'm not like you. I'm not rich and i need this
job. I'm all alone, Louie. I need to work to live, i don't have parents who wil
l support me.."

Aish! Bakit ba kasi gumaganda ang mga babae pag umiiyak? Hirap tuloy tanggihan!
Tsk!

"Do you really need a job?"

Tumango siya.

"Will you work for me?"

Dana's Point of View

"I, Dana Kathyrn Ferrer, promise to take Cyriel Edrian Perez as my lawfully wedd
ed husband, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, in thick and th
in, in happiness and sorrow, 'til death do us part."

I, then, looked at him.

"I, Cyriel Edrian Perez, promise to take Dana Kathyrn Ferrer as my lawfully wedd
ed wife, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, in thick and thin,
in happiness and sorrow, 'til death do us part."

We stared at each other's eyes and both smiled.

We heard applauses from the people who attended the wedding, "let's go?" tanong
ni Cyriel sa'kin.

I nodded, "let's go, husband."

Lumabas na kami sa Caleruega chapel ng magkahawak ang kamay, "san tayo?"

"Honeymoon?" he teased.

"Can you handle me?" i challenged him.

He chuckled tapos pinitik niya yung noo ko, "wag kang ganyan, Mrs. Perez. I'm st
ill a man."

Tumawa na lang kami tapos naglakad papunta sa ferrari niya, "gusto ko sa susunod
tayo na yung ikakasal talaga," sabi niya habang hawak yung kamay ko at yung isa
nakalagay sa manibela.

"It depends.. sa proposal mo. I'm not easy to please, Mr. Perez," i teased.

He laughed, "alam ko. Kaya nga nag iisip na ako eh."

"Bakit? Magppropose ka na ba anytime soon?"

He shrugged, "baka. Brace yourself, Dana."

Umalis na nga kami sa Caleruega. Nakakatuwang isipin na kahit hindi totoo, kahit
na sumabay lang kami sa mga kinasal dun habang nagpapalitan sila ng sumpa sa is
a't isa.. kinasal kami ni Cyriel. Kahit hindi pa yun legal, the fact na hinarap
niya ako sa simbahan, it was more than enough. It was more than enough to make m
e fall over again.

Nakarating kami sa isang restaurant, "dito tayo maghhoneymoon?"

He smirked, "hindi ka na ba makapaghintay sa katawan ko, Dana? Katawan ko lang a


ng habol mo?"

I punched him, "baka ikaw. Sexy ko kaya. Akala mo hindi ko napansin na titig na
titig ka sa'kin kanina nung naka hanging blouse ako noh??"

He blushed.

"Okay lang yan, husband. Makikita mo din naman 'to eh," then i bit my lip, "kaya
bilis bilisan mo na sa proposal mo."

Kumain kami. Ito pala yung inayos niya kanina. Cyriel talaga, yung mga ganitong
bagay na ginagawa niya yung dahilan kaya mas lalo akong nahuhulog. Slowly but de
finitely.. i'm definitely falling hard.

Nakadating kami pabalik sa resort by 7 p.m. Nakaupo kami pareho sa couch while o
ur hands are intertwined.

"Cy?" i called his name.

"Hmm?"

"Can i call you mine?" i asked randomly.

Nakita kong nagblush siya. Hahaha! Lagi ko na 'tong gagawin para makita ko siyan
g nagbblush!

He kissed my cheek, "of course. I'm all yours to begin with, wife. Kuha lang ako
ng tubig," tapos tumayo siya.

Nung tumayo siya, may narinig akong parang nalaglag. Napatingin kami pareho dun
sa.. singsing.

Walang nagsalita sa amin.

P-para ba sa'kin yun?

Nilagay ni Cyriel yung kamay niya sa batok niya tapos pinulot niya yung singsing
.

"Sa'kin ba yan?"

Tumango siya.

Binigay ko yung kamay ko, "suot mo."

"Ha?"

"Sabi ko, ilagay mo sa kamay ko."

Mukhang naguguluhan siya pero nilagay niya pa din sa daliri ko, "now, Cyriel Edr
ian Perez, fiance mo na ako. Pagkatapos ng lahat ng 'to, pag okay na ang lahat,
pag wala na tayong problema, ako ang pakakasalan mo. Ako lang, hindi si Ynna Isa
bel Henares. Tandaan mo, si Dana Kathryn Ferrer lang ang pakakasalan mo. Akin la
ng yang puso mo.. kasi wala akong balak na ibalik yan."

Ngumiti siya, "i love you, Dana."

"Nasabi ko na ba 'to?" i kissed him, "i love you, Cyriel Edrian Perez."

I spoke, "i want to be your girl, not your friend, not your other woman, not you
r second choice. I want to be the one you love, held, and gets phone calls at ni
ght, surprises, the kisses on forehead, the i miss you's, the i love you's, i wa
nt it all. Can you give it to me?"

"Would always comply. Always and forever, Dana," he said as he kissed my knuckle

s.

I pulled him closer and kissed him. I kissed him with everything i have, with ev
erything i could offer.

I nibbled his lower lip while smiling, having my arms snake its way around his n
eck. I played with the strands of his hair, pulling him closer to me. I want him
closer, dangerously closer.

I never thought how much i missed him. All along, i kept on dismissing the fact
that i need him.. that i need him here with me. Right beside me.

He pinned me on the wall and held me by my waist. I found my hands fumbling over
the buttons of his shirt, unbuttoning it one by one.

He looked into my eyes and said, "Dana?"

I pulled him again and said, "just shut up and kiss me."

Andy's Point of View

"Your house's so big, Louie!"

Ano ba naman 'tong Glorie na 'to? Parang ngayon lang nakakita ng bahay. (-_-) Hi
ndi ba uso ang malaking bahay sa Miami?

"Just place your things there," sabi ko tapos naupo muna ako sa couch. Naiwan ko
pa si Berdy sa clinic ni Dr. Emione. Bakit ba kasi ngayon pa nagkasakit si Berd
y? Naiwan tuloy akong mag isa kasama 'tong Glorie na 'to. Di bale, at least maki
kita ko si Dr. Sexy bukas. Hahaha!

"Do you live here alone, Louie?"

"Do you see anyone else here aside from us?"

Nagpout na naman siya, letse! "Why are you always angry with me?"

"It's just-- i was just stating the obvious. It's been a rough day. Just let thi
s one pass," sabi ko.

Kailangan pang naaalala ko si Dana sa kanya? Hindi naman sila magkamukha pag tin
itigan mo pero.. ay, tangina malala na ako!

"Alright," she chirped. Buti na lang talaga madaling maka move on 'tong babaeng
'to. Kahit yata sigawan ko ngayon, mamaya lang okay na ulit 'to eh. Iwas hassle
din! "What would i cook, Louie?"

"Whatever," sabi ko.

"Whatever it is then," sabi niya. Bakit ba napakamasayahin ng babaeng 'to? Nagmu


mukha tuloy akong grumpy sa tabi niya. Leche.

Nagbukas ako ng laptop. Gagawa din ng design sa bagong investment ni papa na res
ort. Engineer Andrei Louie Guzman. Tangina, sarap pakinggan! Hahaha! 5 months na
lang, April na, balik Pinas.

"What is that?"

"Fck!" napasigaw ako, "why do you always pop out of nowhere? Jeez!" Mamamatay ya
ta ako sa sakit sa puso sa babaeng 'to eh!

Nagpout na naman siya. Babaeng pout.

"Sorry, Louie. You just seemed so.. relax and i couldn't bring myself to bother
you," paliwanag niya.

"That's fine. Just don't do that again."

Naupo siya sa tabi ko, "anyway, what's that?"

"Designs."

Nagpout na naman, "i know that! I'm not stupid."

"Not so sure about that one, pouty."

"And since when did you start calling me names?" tapos nag cross arms siya. Isip
bata. Pouty talaga.

"Since i gave you a job. I am your employer," sabi ko habang nirreview yung loca
tion na email nung secretary ni Dad. Hmm.

"Tch. Here is your whatever, sir."

"BACONS AND PANCAKES??"

Sumasakit ang ulo ko sa babaeng 'to!

"What's wrong with that?"

Hingang malalim, Andrei.

"I'm gonna pay you 20 bucks a day for bacons and pancakes?? Are you nuts?" Aba!
Halos 1000 na sa Pinas ang 20 bucks! 350 lang ang minimum wage tapos etong babae
na 'to pagluluto lang naman ang gagawin. Ang sakit sa ulo!

Pouty again, "but you don't have anything in your fridge, Louie. What can i make
out of beers and frozen pizza? Good thing there's eggs and some flour."

"Aish. Fine," sabi ko tapos tumayo ako at kinuha yung jacket ko at beanie, "let'
s go."

"Where?"

"Groceries so you would stop whining and showing me your pouty face."

Pumunta ako sa garage at sumakay sa BMW. Eto na namang babaeng 'to akala mo ngay
on lang nakakita ng sasakyan. -_- Pumasok siya sa loob tapos nakatingin sa akin
at nakangiti.

"What?"

Ngumiti na naman siya, "nothing."

"Creeper."

"I am not!"

"Shut up."

Magsasalita pa sana siya kaya lang binuksan ko yung radio.

-My friends tell me I gotta give it up so I've been trying to move on But my hea
rts still caught and my heads not clear of the pictures from before you were gon
e And I never wanna hurt no one Tryin' to forget your name Something inside just
don't feel the same Noo She's not you
And I don't know what to say But I'll say it anyway No matter what I do I can't
believe the lie And I just can't see it through No, she's not you-

Ay leche! Ano'ng taon na yun pa din ang pinatutugtog dito sa Miami?? Lintek na D
avid Archuleta naman oh!

"Why did you turn that radio off? The song's good," sabi ni pouty.

Bakit ba hanggang dito siya pa din naiisip ko. Halos isang buwan na.. December n
a pala sa susunod na araw. Sana makalimot na ako. Gusto ko na din bumalik sa Pin
as, nandun yung buhay ko, nandun yung mga kaibigan ko, dun ako masaya. Pero mas
sasaya ako kung pagbalik ko dun, wala na akong nararamdaman para kay Dana. Ay sh
t! Sino bang niloko ko? Syempre mahal ko pa din yun! Hindi naman ganun kadaling
kalimutan yun. Halos tatlong taon kong minahal yung babaeng yun eh.. Pero sana m
abawasan naman. Kahit konti lang. Para hindi na sobrang sakit.

"You're idling," sabi nung nasa tabi ko.

"We're here," sabi ko tapos lumabas na ako tapos naupo sa hood ng sasakyan, "her
e." Inabot ko sa kanya yung credit card ko, "buy-- whatever. I'll wait for you h
ere."

Umalis na siya. Kahit naman siguro Ms. Sunshine maiintindihan na gusto kong mapa
g isa ngayon.

calling..
She-who-must-not-be-named

"Hello?"

Sht.

Mahal ko pa din talaga.

**

Dana's Point of View

"Yes, sir. Will call you after class," sabi ko kay Cy then i ended his call.

Last week was.. blissful. After the long years of pain and hurting, i can say th
at i am now happy. And i hope that this will last.

I'm here at a cafe near St. Claire's, gumagawa ng bagong designs para sa final p
ortfolio ko since kailangan ko ng matapos before December.

I was listening to some music when i felt my phone vibrate.

private number
calling..

Private number?? Sino ba 'to? I don't usually entertain stray calls pero.. i fee
l like i need to answer it.

"Hello?" i said through the line.

"Hello?"

Wala namang nagsasalita. Pocket dial?

I was about to end the call when i heard someone from the other line said 'Louie
.'

"Andy?" i asked. Si Andy ba yung tumawag? "Andy?" then the line went dead.

I stared at my phone. Did Andy just call me? Bakit? All these time hindi siya tu
mawag sa'kin, not even a hi or hello or even to tell me that he arrived safely i
n California. I thought we're friends.. Or so i thought. Of course he wouldn't c
ontact me! After all i did to him.. sana mapatawad niya ako. I want him back. I
want Andy back. I want my hot and cold back.

"Hey."

"Hey yourself, Josh. Your stalking skill is becoming.. creepy. How did you know
i'm here?" i asked.

He smiled, "i just know. And don't flatter yourself, Ms. Ferrer, i'm not a stalk
er. I'm seeing someone."

"Of course you're seeing someone. You always does, Josh. Hard habit to break," i
commented as i continue to draw.

If i am to graduate next sem, ibibigay ba sa'kin ni mom yung boutique niya? Pero
ayoko pa.. besides, she can still manage the boutiques. Mom's just in her early
40's. Maybe i'll just ask to manage the new line she's planning to start.

But then, papayag kaya si Cy? Would he marry me after graduation? Geez! Way to g
o, Dana. You just returned from a rather blissful vacation tapos pupunuin mo na
naman yung isip mo ng what if's. I really know how to torture myself.

"Who's the unlucky girl?" i asked.

"Nof Salvador," he grins, "gotcha."

My jaw just fell. Literally.

"Nof? As in Nof my friend? No, you won't! You're a sore player, Josh! You'll hur
t her!" i objected. God! Could the start of this week get even more frustrating?
First, Andy's unexpected call (?), then this? Nof and Josh? Really??

"Now that's below the belt, D. I won't hurt her. Besides, she's the one who's hu
rting me. She's been inflicting great damage to my already bruised ego since i m
et her," sabi niya. Typical of Nof. Sadist at heart.

"Well deserved, Josh. For all the hearts you broke," i honestly commented.

"Whatever, D. By the way, i saw your boyfriend last week," he said.

"Where?" i asked nonchalantly. Sheez. Graduation jitters right through my feet.


Ganito ba talaga ang feeling ng ggraduate? Kinakabahan ako kahit next sem pa yun
! Am i ready to conquer the world of professionals? Of course i am!

"In my cousin's house. Yeah. There. I see him there often," he said.

I raised a brow, "your cousin? I thought you're from England?"

He shrugged, "i am. My dad's a Filipino but i'm using my mom's name since i am q
uite of the illegitimate child," he said as if its an old news, "don't give me t
hat face, D. I'm seriously over it. Besides, my old guy provides me money. No fu
ss."

"Still, sorry to hear that, Josh."

"No, prob. Glad that i don't carry my father's name. My ex fiance wanted to marr
y me beause of that. Never thought the name Henares could be so influencial here
," he said.

I gawked at him, "Fck."

"What, D?"

"Don't fcking tell me you're Ynna's cousin?"

He nodded.

Fcking fck. Why is everything connected with her??

**

Ynna's Point of View

"Senorita, nasa labas po si Sir Cyriel," one of the maids told me.

"Make him leave," i told her off.

Last week
anna kill
now, he's
it. She's

was.. hell. Cyriel left me. I have no reason to live. I wanna die. I w
Dana! She took everything away from me! Cyriel is my everything.. and
with her.. Everything i want to be, everything i desire, she all gets
the reason i am this pathetic!

"Ynna." I know that voice.

"Just go, Perez. I don't want to have any connections with you," i said dryly.

It's better off this way. I'm weak and dying. I better make myself used to the f
act that he'll never be mine.. as long as Dana lives. I better be counting my dy
ing days instead of degrading myself even more by begging him to stay.

He sat by tha stool near me and placed a basket of fruits on my bedside table, "
brought this for you."

I smirked at him, "last time i checked, my family's richer than yours, Perez. I
could buy fruits for all you care."

He smiled to himself, "of course, Ynna. Kamusta ka na?"

"Dying."

"Did you take your meds?"

"Don't care."

"Will you stop being monosyllabic, Ynna?"

I spoke, "don't you Ynna me, Perez! The moment you walked out that door, i want
nothing from you. I would die someday and i tell you, it's because of you. You k
illed me, Cyriel! I died a thousand deaths because of you! Far more excruciating
than my diseases."

He sat still, "i don't care about what you think. Dito ako sa tabi mo. That's wh
at a good friend does."

I slapped him, "stop this, Cyriel! I love you, can't you see that? Stop giving m
e hope that you would love me back and just leave me alone! Just leave me and le
t me die hating Dana."

He held his freshly slapped cheek, "gusto mo ng apples, Ynna? Sorry kung wala ak
o last week, may inasikaso lang ako. Nakausap mo na ba yung doctor mo?"

**

Andy's Point of View

"Here," binigay ko sa kanya yung bayad.

"Thank you, boss. Nice working with you," sabi niya.

"You sure you can go home alone?" tanong ko. Gabi na kaya. Alas siete na eh. Mam
aya ma rape pa 'tong pouty na 'to.

"Been going home alone since i turned 15, Louie. See you tomorrow!"

Umalis na siya. Pero dahil nagppractice ako ng gentleman skills, sinundan ko siy
a. Baka marape pa 'to, konsensya ko pa. Eh sa katawan pa lang ni pouty malabong
makasuntok 'to ng rapist eh! Ang liit tapos sexy pa. Leche. Oo na, sexy si pouty
. Na aappreciate ko naman yun. Hehe.

Sinusundan ko siya tapos pumasok siya sa isang club? Dito ba siya nakatira?

Pumasok din ako sa loob tapos hindi ko na siya nakita. Naupo muna ako sa stool s
a counter habang hinahanap ko siya.

Umorder muna ako ng margarita. Tangina. Nakakamiss din pala yung bar ni Dave, ak
alain mo? Halos ayoko na ngang pumunta dun dati kasi araw araw akong nandun.

Napatingin naman ako sa mga sipol ng lalaki sa likod.

Tangina.

"Come with me," hinatak ko siya palabas. "What the fck, Glorie Evans?!" sigaw ko
sa kanya. Fck tangina leche! "What?! You're gonna cry again?!"

"S-sorry, Louie. Why are you mad at me? D-did i do something wrong?" she said wh
ile sobbing.

Inabot ko sa kanya yung panyo ko at nalagay ko na lang yung kamay ko sa ulo out
of frustration, "what are you doing there?" tanong ko, trying to keep my voice l
ow. Kasi tangina, malapit na akong sumigaw!

Inilagay ko sa kanya yung jacket ko. Leche! Ang sakit sa ulo!

"I-it's my job."

"It's your job! Wow, Glorie Evans. How many jobs do you have? Do you seriously n
eed money to get into that kind of.. job?"

Ngumiti siya sa'kin pero alam kong hindi totoo. Tangina, Glorie Evans. Ano bang
ginagawa mo sa'kin?!

"I need it, Louie. I need money. I need it so much that i would stoop this low a
nd wear these," sabi niya sabay turo sa damit niyang hindi ko alam kung damit pa
ba ang tawag, "and entertain people who would degrade me and treat me as sex ob
jects. Yes, Louie. I need money that much."

Kinuha ko yung wallet ko, "there. Quit that fcking job for fck's sake, Glorie!"

"I can't accept this," tapos binalik niya sakin yung pera, "if you would excuse
me."

Babalik na sana siya papasok sa bar pero hinatak ko siya pabalik, "don't turn yo
ur back on me while i'm still talking, Glorie Evans," binigay ko sa kanya lahat
ng laman ng wallet ko, "i'm buying your whole week. Quit your job."

Naglakad ako palayo pero hinabol niya ako, "i can't accept these!"

"Fck. You're one frustrating woman."

Binalik niya sa bulsa ko, "here. I can't have that, Louie. It's your money."

"It's my parent's, if that's what you worry about." sabi ko.

"I don't want it even more if it is your parent's."

Hingang malalim, "what should i do to make you quit your job?"

"Why do you care so much, Louie?"

Kasi.. kasi nakikita ko si Dana sa'yo. Kasi hindi ko kayang makita si Dana na ga
nyan ang ginagawa. Kasi hindi ko mapprotektahan si Dana kasi may Cyriel na siya
kaya ikaw na lang siguro hanggang si Dana pa din.

"Because i can."

"And why do you always give me money?"

I sighed, "because i have. I can afford, Ms. Evans. That money i'm giving you is
nothing, i swear. Don't worry too much."

"O-okay, Louie. I'll just get my things inside.."

Naglakad na siya pero sumunod ako. Bakit ba kasi dito siya nagttrabaho? Sobrang
hirap ba ng buhay niya para mapilitan siyang pumasok sa club? Ilan ba ang trabah
o niya? Yung kay Angel, sa akin, dun sa Daniel's, tapos dito din? Tsk. Ang sakit
sa ulo ng Glorie na 'to!

"Thanks, Louie," sabi niya nung kinuha ko yung gamit niya.

Naglakad lang kami papunta sa bahay nila. Malayo din mula sa bahay ko pero kaya
namang lakarin. Tsk. Bakit ba hindi ko na lang dinala yung sasakyan ko? Minsan t
alaga iniisip ko na naiwan ko yung utak ko sa Pilipinas eh!

Nginitian niya na naman ako. Ms. Sunshine talaga 'to, "thanks, Louie."

O__________O

"See you tomorrow, Mr. Grumpy."

Napahawak ako sa pisngi ko. Tsk. Tignan mo, Dana. Kahit si Glorie naiinlove na y
ata sa'kin, ikaw lang talaga ang hindi.

Dana's Point of View

"Sara.."

"Oh, Dana!"

I hugged her tight, "i missed you. Gaga ka! Hindi ka man lang nagparamdam sa aki
n."

She laughed, "accountancy student, Dana. Gets mo na yun."

I laughed as well, "yeah. Accountancy explains it all. Sorry, namiss ko lang kas
i ang best friend ko."

"Tch. Problema mo? Spill the beans, Dana. Best friend kaya kita. I should know n
a may problema ka."

I sat down on her bed, "kasi kausap ko si Josh kanina.."

"Huh? Josh?"

I nodded, "yeah. Josh. The British guy."

"What the fcking hell, Dana?? Are you nuts? Di ba yun yung nagbigay sa'yo ng dru
gs??"

I laughed.

"This is no laughing matter, Dana Kathryn. Bakit ka sumasama dun??"

"Chill, Sara. He's sober. Nagpa rehab na yung tao. Wag nang judgemental. Everybo
dy deserves a second chance.. and so is he," i explained. Everybody deserves tha
t, right? Kaya lang, sana naman pahalagahan nila yung second chance. Hindi kasi
madaling ibigay yun.

Pero kasi si Cyriel.. I gave him a second chance pero bakit parang walang nangya
yari. I am his fiance for Christ's sake! Bakit ganito? Bakit kung kailan binigay
ko na tsaka pa siya natutong magsinungaling? Ganun ba talaga lahat ng lalaki? Y
un lang ba talaga yung gusto nila?

"Fine. Sorry. Naiinis lang ako kasi di ba siya yung dahilan kaya mo nahalikan si
Dave. Kainis!!"

"Sorry, Sara. Hindi ko talaga sinasadya. Dave is like a brother to me. I don't k
now what--"

"Chill, Dana. Everybody deserves a second chance. And so are you," sabi niya tap
os natawa ako, "right back at you," tapos nagwink siya. This is why i miss my be
st friend!

"Buti naman tumawa ka na, Dana. Now, why are you here?"

Take a deep breath, Dana.

"As i was saying, i saw Josh yesterday.. sabi niya lagi niyang nakikita si Cyrie
l sa bahay nila Ynna."

"Wait, Josh then Ynna then Cyriel? How are they connected?"

I explained to her na pinsan nga ni Josh si Ynna and i am still dazed by the ide
a! Who would have thought na magpinsan pala yung dalawa na yun??

"They're cousins.. Don't you think it's bizzare, Dana? Di ba si Josh yung dahila
n kaya muntik ka nang ma hit and run dati tapos siya din yung sa bidding na nag
away daw kayo ni Cyriel according to Kim. And to think na pinsan pala siya ni Yn
na.. it's weird.."

I shrugged, "i don't know anything anymore, Sara. Naguguluhan ako. I asked Cyrie
l kung saan siya nagpupunta these days pero sabi niya wala daw. But Josh said th
at he saw Cyriel visiting Ynna! It's-- it's complicated. Akala ko naman okay na.
. I gave him my everything.."

"You- you gave him your everything?? Dana??"

I burst into tears.

She hugged me, "it's okay, Dana. Wag ka nang umiyak. Everything will be alright.
. Siguro may dahilan si Cyriel kung bakit hindi siya nagsasabi ng totoo. Trust h
im, alright? Ganito naman talaga eh. Kung gusto niyong magtagal, you have to lea
rn to trust him and give him the benefit of the doubt. Every relationship needs
that, Dana.. Besides, ang layo na ng narating niyo ni Cyriel.. Ynna is old news,
just get over it. Ikaw ang mahal, napatunayan mo na naman siguro yun, di ba? Ju
st.. just trust him and everything will fall into right places."

"Pero kasi--"

"Walang pero, buts, what ifs, Dana. Life is a piece of shit. Kung lagi ka na lan
g magpapaapekto sa naririnig mo, sa nakikita mo, walang mangyayari. Sometimes, y
ung mga bagay na ganun dapat hindi na natin pinakakailaman. We just need to live
with it. Acceptance, Dana. Ganun talaga. We don't always get what we want but w
e always get what we need."

"Thank you, Sara. This is exactly what i need," i uttered.

"Sure ba. Tulungan mo naman ako sa exer ko. Hehehe."

I laughed, "gaga ka ba? Nagshift ako di ba."

**
Color pens. Mags. Ano pa ba ang bibilin ko? Tch. Bakit ba kasi nasa mall ako nga
yon? Geez!

calling..
Cyriel Edrian Perez

"Hello?" i said.

("Fiance.")

"Nasan ka?"

("Nasa office ni Clarence. May pinapagawa siya eh, alam mo naman yun kung mag ut
os.")

"Ah. I thought you could accompany me. See you later, Cy."

("See you tonight, fiance. I love you.")

"I love-- i'll call you later," i said then i ended the call, "Clarence. Long ti
me no talk, kasama mo si Cyriel?"

Nakasalubong ko si Clarence. Nandito kasi ako sa mall nila, may bibilin lang san
a ako para sa portfolio ko.

"Lil brother? Nah. Ewan ko dun di ko naman nakikita. Laters, Dana. Daming ginaga
wa sa office eh."

Benefit of the doubt, Dana. Benefit of the doubt.

61st Chapter

"Oh? Nandito din kayo?" i said as i sat on one of the couch.

Kim nodded, "yup, DK! Ewan ko kay Nof, she texted me awhile ago na pumunta dito
sa bar ni Dave eh," she said as she sipped her martini.

Nandito din si Kim eh sa Area06. Ano 'to? Girl's night out?

"Ano daw agenda?" i said as i ordered rhum on the rocks. Kim and Sara just shrug
ged. Ano bang pakana na naman ni Nof? Ano bang meron ngayon? Oh God!! Don't tell
me iaannounce niya sa amin na sila na ni Josh? Like what the heck? Agad agad? G
aano na ba sila katagal magkakilala? Less than a month? Besides, who knows what
that British guy is planning? Afterall, he's her cousin for all i care.

Finally, Nof arrived.

"What's up?" Sara asked. Buti talaga okay na si Sara at Nof. It was really way,
way awkward nung hindi sila nag uusap! Bakit ba kasi sobrang cute ni Dave na dal
awa sa kaibigan ko ang nag aaway para sa kanya? -_-

Nof just smiled, "i'll tell you later. Order muna tayo?"

"Kill joy ka talaga!!" Kim whined, "sabihin mo na!!"

We laughed. Kim talaga, isip bata. Buti hindi pa siya iniiwan ni Clarence eh mas
maigsi pa sa posporo ang pasensya nun!

"Aish, excited? Later nga. Kainis," she said to Kim then bumaling siya sa amin,
"ano sa inyo? My treat," then she beamed.

It's really getting the best of my curiosity. Ano ba yung sasabihin niya para ng
umiti siya ng ganito?? News of the year??

"Kuripot!" Kim commented, "lilibre na lang, sa bar pa ni Dave. Hindi man lang sa
fine dining."

Nof stucked out her tongue, "eh di wag ka. Daming alam."

"Che!"

We ordered the usual drinks. Margarita for Kim, Absinthe for me, Tonic for Nof,
and Bloody Mary for Sara.

After couple of time, dumating na yung order namin. Yeah, nasa second floor kasi
kami ng bar ni Dave. VIP. Libre 'to. Nuxx. Syempre, kasama namin ang girlfriend
niya eh! Ibuko ko pa kay Sara yung proposal niya eh. Hahaha!

"So, ano nga'ng meron?" Kim asked for God only knows how many times.

"Aish, hindi makapaghintay?" Nof said.

"Eh kasi eh!! Nabitin ako!!" Kim answered.

"Mamaya na yun. Save the best for last nga eh," tapos tumingin siya kay Sara, "i
kaw. Kamusta? Buhay pa ba?"

We laughed. Ang haggard lang kasi ni Sara! Parang hindi pinatulog ng ilang araw!
Pasalamat siya mahal talaga siya ni Dave kaya natitiis yung deranged look niya.

She let out a sigh, "kaya pa. Shet! Nauubos na yung dugo ko sa accountancy! Buti
na lang OJT na next sem. God, gustung gusto ko nang grumaduate!!"

We all laughed kasi with matching pagyuko pa siya sa mesa. Hahaha! One of the be

st decisions na nagawa ko talaga ang pagsshift!

After naming pag usapan yung acads, nalipat naman kami kay Kim. She raised a bro
w, "bakit kayo nakatingin lahat sa akin???"

"How's married life, Kim?"

O//////o

"Blushing bride! Hahaha!"

Hindi nakapagsalita si Kim! Gagang babae yan! Wala talagang balak sabihin sa ami
n. -_- Buti talaga narinig ko silang nag uusap ni Nof! Akalain mo, sisters-in-la
w na pala sila ni Ynna! Great life, isn't it??

"Shut up, guys!! Kinikilig ako!! Hihihi," Kim said.

I smiled. Good thing she's happy. I want all of my friends to be happy. Kahit na
paka kumplikado ng buhay ko, sana kahit sila na lang yung magkaroon ng simple na
buhay. It's really a pain in the neck. All these complications!

Our attentions were diverted to Nof, "Nof.."

"Hmm?" she said.

"Are you seeing someone?" i blurted out. Mamaya niloloko lang pala ako ni Josh!!

She shrugged, "sure. I'm seeing couple of guys. Why d'you ask?"

I grinned. Josh just met his match. He's just one of her boys. Hahaha! He's righ
t. She's inflicting a great damage to his already bruised ego. Way to go, Nof! B
eat him at his own game!

"Wala lang. Anything serious?"

She shrugged again, "ewan. Just playing around."

Then we talked a bit more. I miss these days. Yung nag uusap lang kayo ng friend
s mo about anything under the sun. Parang walang kwenta lang yung pinag uusapan
namin pero ang saya saya. Dati parang tine take for granted ko yung mga ganitong
moment, pero ngayon, isa na to sa treasured moments ko.

Past 11 na nung naubos yung drinks namin, "wait, kukuha pa ako," Nof said, "pagb
alik ko, i have something to tell you."

Oh well. Ano ba yung something na yun?

While waiting for Nof, i went to the comfort room since madami dami na din kamin

g nainom. I also checked my phone. Hindi naman importante yung ibang texts kaya
binura ko na din yung ibang message threads. While erasing those, nakita ko yung
isang text ni Cy.

From: Cyriel Edrian Perez


Call me.

Call him? Ano bang meron? I checked his message, it was sent just ten minutes ag
o. Siguro naman gising pa siya, di ba?

calling..
Cyriel Edrian Perez

After few rings, he picked up his phone.

("Dana..")

"Cy, bakit mo ko pinatawag?" i asked. Something important? Hindi naman niya sigu
ro ako papatawagin out of the blue lang, di ba?

("Nasa airport ako..")

"Huh?"

("I'll be gone for 2 weeks..")

"Bakit?" i asked. Bakit siya aalis? Biglaan naman yata? Kalagitnaan ng sem ah! D
i ba dapat naghahabol pa siya since delayed na nga siya ng 2 sem?

("Business matters. I will miss you..")

I smiled, "i'll miss you, too. San ka ba pupunta?"

("Sa Davao lang.")

"Davao lang pala eh. I could visit you, if you want," i offered. Davao lang. Aka
la ko naman out of the country.

("Wag na. Hindi din kita maaasikaso.. I'm sorry, Dana..")

"Sus. Nasa airport ka pa ba? Ihahatid kita, gusto mo?"

("Hindi. Nasa Davao na ako. Sige, tawagan kita bukas. Gabi na din, matulog ka na
.")

I chuckled, "hindi na po ako bata. Ikaw nga jan, pahinga ka na."

("i will. Nasan ka ba? Parang ang ingay jan ah.")

Nilock ko pa yung pinto ng cr. Ang ingay naman kasi! Weekday na weekday, puno 't
ong bar! Napaghahalataan talaga na party people mga tiga St. Claire's eh!

"Ah, sa bar ni Dave. Girl's night out," i explained to him. Hala, natatagalan na
yata ako. Nakabalik na kaya si Nof? May sasabihin pa siya, di ba??

("Ikaw magddrive pauwi? Tsk. Magpasundo ka na lang.")

"Ay, daddy, ikaw ba yan? Sige, sige, aalis na ako. Bye, fiance. Pahinga ka na ja
n," i said then i ended the call.

Ano ba kasi yung ginagawa niya sa Davao? Importante ba yun?

**
Ynna's Point of View

"Ynna.."

He's here again. What do you want, Cyriel? I've been pushing you away but you ju
st keep on returning. I'm really tired.. Tired of hurting and hoping. You alread

y made it clear that it will never be me. That Dana is the only girl you will ev
er love. I get it. Pero bakit ayaw mo pa din akong tigilan? I said it.. i can't
be friends with you.. I can't be just friends with you..

"Sabi ni Tita ayaw mo pa magpa therapy?"

I felt that he sat on the edge of my bed.

"Bakit ayaw mo? Gusto mo na ba talagang mamatay?"

I wanted to nod and say that i f.cking want to die right now. Everything just hu
rts for me. Nothing is easy, even breathing is f.cking hard right now.

"Akala ko ba gusto mo kong makasama?"

I wanted to say yes, i want to be with you, Cy. I want to be with you until all
our hairs turn white. I want to be your wife until i die that's why there's no c
hance that i will sign the annulment paper. Konti na lang.. i will die soon.. Hi
ndi ba pwedeng ibigay sa akin yun?

"Ayaw mo bang magpagamot, Ynna? Kahit para sa akin?"

I don't want to, Cy.. I love you too much. I love you so much that it kills me.
I want to fight my feelings but i just can't. I feel weak. All the medicines are
taking its toll on my body.. I feel helpless. I don't want to prolong my life.
I don't want to prolong my agony.

"You begged me, Ynna. You begged me to marry you. I hurt my life, Ynna. Sinaktan
ko si Dana, Ynna.. I did my part. Sana naman gawin mo yung sa'yo.. Please help
yourself. Don't give up."

I felt him move.. then i felt his lips on my forehead, "don't give up, Ynna. You
're my wife. You asked for it. Lumaban ka."

Cyriel, why do you care? It hurts even more..

**
Cyriel's Point of View

"Cyriel.."

Tumalikod ako at nakita ko yung mama ni Ynna, "tita."

"Can we talk?"

Tumango ako at sumunod sa office sa bahay nila. Naupo siya sa harap nung working
table ni Tito. Buti na lang wala si Tito. Hindi ako sanay na makita siya. Lagi
niyang pinapamukha sa akin na kung wala sila, wala din kami. Bakit ba kasi nag i
nvest sila nung nalaman nila na ikakasal kami ni Ynna?! Sila pa yung major inves
tor! Bakit din ba kasi pumayag si Clarence?!

"Ano pong pag uusapan?" sabi ko. Kaya lang naman ako pumupunta dito para kay Ynn
a. Kaibigan ko si Ynna. Nahihirapan ako pag nasasaktan siya. Nag iisa na lang si
ya ngayon, wala na siyang kaibigan. Ako na lang. Ako na lang yung meron siya kay
a hindi ko siya kayang iwan. Mahal ko si Dana pero mas kailangan ako ni Ynna nga
yon..

"As you can see, my daughter's condition is getting worse," she said then her vo
ice broke, "don't leave her, Cyriel.. She needs you now more than ever.."

Tumango ako. Alam ko. Hindi ko naman siya iiwan eh. Kailangan niya ako ngayon. K
aya nga ako nandito eh. Kaya nga nagsisinungaling ako kay Dana.. Ayaw kong mag a
way kami pag nalaman niyang nandito ako.. Kakaayos lang namin eh..

"She doesn't want any therapy, Cyriel.. She gave up. She doesn't want any treatm
ent.." tapos umiyak siya. Naawa ako sa kanya. Kakamatay lang nung isa niyang ana
k, tapos ngayon si Ynna naman. Hindi ko alam kung ano ba yung dapat kong gawin.

"Will you convince her, Cyriel? Will you convince her to go to her grandparents'
place? Will you accompany her?"

Hindi ko alam. Ayokong sumama dahil ayokong lumayo kay Dana.. Pero si Ynna..

"Will you come, Cyriel?"

Hindi pa din ako nagsasalita. Hindi ko alam yung gagawin ko.

"What do you want me to do? To pull out all our shares and let your family have
a taste of bankruptcy? Or do you want me to ruin Dana's life? I'm giving you thr

ee choices here, Cyriel. You just have to choose."

Hindi ko na talaga alam yung gagawin ko. Wala naman ako pakielam kahit mawala yu
ng pera eh. Pero hindi naman ako ganun ka selfish para hindi isipin yung pamilya
ko. Mahal ko ang pamilya ko, mahal ko si mama, si papa, si Clarence. Iniisip ko
din lahat ng nagttrabaho sa amin.. At mas lalong mahal ko si Dana.

Pumayag na ako. Wala din naman akong magagawa. Ako ang nagsimula ng gulo na 'to,
ako dapat ang tumapos. Kung sana naniwala ako sa sinabi ni Andy dati, eh di san
a wala yung gulo na 'to ngayon. Pero wala na eh. Nandito na. Gagawan ko na lang
ng paraan na walang masasaktan.

Sinubukan kong tawagan si Dana pero hindi ko siya macontact.

Dana Kathryn Perez


calling..

"Dana.." i called out her name. Bakit ba sobrang mahal kita?

("Cy, bakit mo ko pinatawag?") she asked.

"Nasa airport ako.."

("Huh?")

"I'll be gone for 2 weeks.." mamimiss kita..

("Bakit?")

"Business matters. I will miss you.." ayokong magsinungaling pero ayaw din naman
kitang saktan. F.ck! Hindi ko na alam! Ayaw kong magsinungaling pero.. patawadi
n mo ako, Dana..

("I'll miss you, too. San ka ba pupunta?")

"Sa Davao lang."

("Davao lang pala eh. I could visit you, if you want,")

"Wag na. Hindi din kita maaasikaso.. I'm sorry, Dana.." ayokong makita mo ako na
ganito, na hindi ka maipaglaban kasi natatakot ako. Natatakot akong mapahamak y
ung pamilya ko at natatakot akong masaktan ka. Patawarin mo ako kung hindi ako k
agaya ni Andy na kayang kalimutan lahat para sa'yo.. Pero masaya ako na kahit hi
ndi ako kagaya ni Andy, ako pa din yung pinili mo..

("Sus. Nasa airport ka pa ba? Ihahatid kita, gusto mo?") wag na.. baka hindi ako
makaalis pag nandito ka..

"Hindi. Nasa Davao na ako. Sige, tawagan kita bukas. Gabi na din, matulog ka na.
"

She chuckled, ("hindi na po ako bata. Ikaw nga jan, pahinga ka na.")

"I will. Nasan ka ba? Parang ang ingay jan ah."

("Ah, sa bar ni Dave. Girl's night out.")

"Ikaw magddrive pauwi? Tsk. Magpasundo ka na lang."

("Ay, daddy, ikaw ba yan? Sige, sige, aalis na ako. Bye, fiance. Pahinga ka na j
an,") she said then she ended the call.

2 weeks lang, Dana. Kailangan lang ako ni Ynna.. Para na din 'to sa'yo.. Ikaw an
g sinisisi nila sa nangyari sa mga anak nila.. Ako na lang ang masaktan wag lang
ikaw..

Andy's Point of View

-dingdong-

Aish! Kaaga aga eh!

\(-o-)/

Nag inat inat pa ako habang naglalakad papunta sa pinto. Sino ba 'to??

"Good morning, boss!!"

(-_-)

Si Glorie pala. Anubayan. Bakit ba kasi binigyan ko pa ng trabaho 'to? Nakikita


ko tuloy araw araw. Tsk.

Tuloy tuloy lang siyang pumasok. Wow, feel at home??

"What will i cook?"

"Whatever."

"Hmm. You really like whatever, don't you, Louie?" sabi niya tapos nagsuot ng ap
ron.

"Whatever," sabi ko tapos umupo ako sa couch at nanuod ng vampire diaries. Taena

! Bakit ba ako nanunuod nito?? Ay, deny pa, Andy?! Kasi lagi niyong pinapanuod y
an ni Dana dati! Taena. Palala na ako ng palala. -_-

Natapos ng magluto si pouty tapos umupo na ako sa lamesa. Akalain mong marunong
magluto ng eggs benedict and pouty na 'to??

Nakatingin lang siya sa kinakain ko. -_- Bibigyan ko ba siya? -_- Ayoko nga. Nag
ugutom ako eh. Hehehe.

"Louie.."

"Oh?" tsk! Baka humingi pa 'tong si pouty! Bilisan ko na nga ang kain!!

"Where's your berdy?"

O___________O

"Aaaack!!" nabulunan ako. Tubig!!!

Nataranta yata si pouty kaya kumuha siya agad ng tubig, "here, Louie. Why are yo
u eating so fast? It's not as if someone's gonna grab your food. Geez. Eat slowl
y." she said while patting my back.

Langya!! Eh sino ba naman kasi ang hindi mabubulunan sa tanong niya??? Where's m

y berdy?? Ano ba namang klaseng tanong yun?? Malamang nasa loob ng boxers ko!! A
y taena! Nilulumot talaga yung utak ko sa pouty na 'to eh!

"Whatever."

Nagpouty face na naman siya, "whatever, Louie. Anyways, i can't come this aftern
oon. Is it okay with you?"

I just nodded. Hahaha! No pouty this afternoong! Ayos to!

"Geez. No need to show me how happy you are that i'll be gone, Louie. I'll be ba
ck in the evening!"

Tsk. Masyado bang halata na nakakairita yung matinis niyang boses? Tsaka mauubus
an na ako ng English dito eh!! Sakit sa ilong!

"Won't you ask me where i'll be going?"

Nilipat ko yung channel. Leche. Bakit kasi chicks si Nina Dobrev? Leche!

"I don't care."

"Mr. Grumpy!"

"Whatever."

Nagpout siya, "one whatever again, Louie. Just say that word again and i'll kiss
you."

O___O

She laughed. Abnormal ba 'to?? Taena! Takas yata sa mental si pouty. -_-

"Don't worry, Louie. I kiss good. I'm a good kisser," sabi niya tapos nagwink si
ya sa akin.

"I'm a better kisser."

"I am!!"

Aish! Isip batang brunette na clumsy na pasaway na sexy-- ay, teka. Bakit naging
compliment??

Lumapit siya sa akin, "will you prove that you're a better kisser, Louie?"

O___O

Layo layo ng konti.

"I'm expensive, pouty. 50, 000 pesos. Or in your case, 1, 000 dollars."

Ay shet! Naalala ko na naman yung GKI. Nababakla na naman ako! Namimiss ko sila
Dave! Taena, Pilipinas. Bakit ang layo mo??

Nagpout naman siya, "it's so expensive. Tsk. I'll just wait for you to say whate
ver then i'll get to kiss you. Bye, Louie! Chew your food!"

-_-

Andy, tanggalin sa bokabularyo ang whatever. Delikado. Kiss starts a hellhole of


what ifs.

**
Dana's Point of View

Bakit nagkakagulo sila?

"Really, Nof??"

Tumango tango lang si Nof. Anyareh ba dito? Nawala lang ako saglit sa cr, nagkag
ulo na dito. Ano ba yung binalita niya?

"Anong meron?" i asked.

"Sorry, DK. Kulit kulit kasi ni Kim kaya sinabi ko na.."

I just nodded. Ano ba yun at kung makapag react naman sila??

"Ano ba kasi yun?"

Sara shot a glance at me then Nof spoke, "i don't know if it's a good news or ba
d new for you but.. Andy's girlfriend is pregnant, DK!! We're gonna be godparent
s!!"

What??

Dana's Point of View

"Are you okay, honey?"

I turned and saw my father standing by the door frame, "dad.."

He slowly walked towards me and sat by the edge of my bed, "everything alright?"

I gave him a weak smile, "of course. Everything's alright, dad."

He moved closer to me and placed his arms around my shoulders, "Dana, alam ko na
man na may tampo ka pa din sa akin dahil sa mga nangyari dati," he said, "pero s
ana naman kalimutan mo na yun.."

I looked at him in the eye and said, "it's all in the past, dad.. Nakalimutan ko
na yun.."

He smiled at me, "but i still wonder when did you stop telling me things.."

"Dad naman.."

He smiled and patted my head, "dalaga na talaga ang baby ko.. Boy problems?"

I blushed. Boy problem nga ba?

"Ano ba yan? Baka naman kailangan mo ng fatherly advice?"

I rested my head on his shoulders, "dad.."

"Hmm?"

I took a deep breathe. Siguro eto na yung tamang oras para sabihin na break na k
ami ni Andy. It's been a month simula nung umalis siya.. It's been a month simul
a nung nagkaayos kami ni Cyriel.. It's been a month na..

"Dad?" i called out his name again, uncertain if i would tell that. He likes And
y! Bigtime. Natatakot lang ako na makakita ng disappointment sa mukha niya once
na sabihin ko yun..

"What is it, Dana? Come on, sabihin mo na.."

I sighed, "wala na po kami ni Andy.." there, i said it.

I closed my eyes in anticipation for his reaction. Instead, i received yet anoth
er pat from him, "i know."

I opened my eyes, "how??"

He gave my shocked look a warm smile in return, "Andy told me."

Ano daw? Andy told him? But how? Why? Akala ko ba ayaw niyang makipagbreak sa ak
in? Pero bakit siya pa yung nagsabi??

"He told me before he left for the States. He's really a great guy, Dana. He lov
es you too much. Sabi niya sa akin na alam niyang mahihirapan kang sabihin sa ak
in yun kaya siya na lang ang magsasabi. He also told me that he's the one who ca
used the problem kaya kayo nagkaproblema. He told me not to blame you for ruinin
g whatever you guys had."

I smiled, bitterly. Si Andy talaga..

"You know how much i like Andy for you, right?"

I nodded.

"And he will still be the best guy for you. But i am your dad above everything e
lse and your happiness is still my first priority.. And if you're happy with wh
oever that is, i'll support you, hija," he said then he stood up, "just be happy
and we will always be there for you."

I smiled as he went out of my room. Tama si Dad. Happiness.

Andy's Point of View

NO GLORIE FOR TODAY!!

Yes naman! Nakawala din ako sa pouty na 'yun! Tsk! Puntahan ko na nga si Berdy k
o dun. Mamaya isipin nun inabandona ko siya. Hindi kaya ako nang iiwan, si Dana
lang yun. Hehe. De, joke lang.

-Dandy Veterinary Clinic-

"Good morning, Sir," bati sa akin nung nurse.

"Good morning, nurse Em," bati ko sa kanya. Nabasa ko sa name plate eh. Hehe. Na
gblush naman yung nurse. Gwapo mo talaga, Andy. Walang kupas.

Nginitian niya ako tapos hinawi niya yung buhok niya. Tsk. Isa na namang biktima
ng kagwapuhan ko.

Nginitian ko na lang, "is Dr. Emione inside?" tanong ko.

Sumimangot naman si Nurse Em. Grabe! Isang ngiti lang yun ah? Na in love na agad
siya? Tsk!

"Yeah," sabi niya tapos nagtype na ulit siya sa computer. Tsk. Hindi na ako pina
nsin. Bayaan na nga.

Pumasok ako sa loob at nakita kong natutulog pa si Berdy. Mabuti naman at tulog,
masamang gising, nanunuklaw ay este nangangagat pala. Tsk.

"Good morning, Dr. Emione," bati ko kay Dr. Sexy.

"Good morning, Louie. I though you already forgot your dog," sabi niya.

Oo nga eh. Halos nakalimutan ko na si Berdy. Ang dami ko ding iniisip, lalo na s
i Dana. Haaay. December na pala. Ilang araw na lang, pasko na, tapos birthday di
n niya. Umuwi kaya ako sa Pilipinas? Pwede naman di ba? Tsaka bakit nga ba ako n
agtitiis hanggang April dito eh pwede naman akong umuwi pag gusto ko? Tsk! Ang l
abo ng buhay, kasing labo ng lovelife ko! Tapos dumadagdag pa yang si Glorie pat
i yung whatever niya! Sakit sa ulo eh.

Nginitian ko na lang si doc, "hehe. So, how's my dog?"

Nilapitan niya si Berdy at hinawakan yung balahibo. Ay potek! Bakit napaatras ak


o! Hindi naman ako yung hinawakan niya, yung Berdy ko!! Ay potek talaga! Ano ban
g nangyayari sa imagination ko?? Dahil ba 'to sa pinanood ko na Shrek the movie
sa HBO kagabi??

"Louie? What's wrong? You look pale. Are you fine?"

*gulp*

"I-im fine. I just need some fresh air," sabi ko tapos tumakbo ako palabas ng Da
ndy's. Lecheng buhay! Bakit bumabalik na naman ako sa dati?!! 2 years ago na yun
ah!! Lintek oh!!

Hingang malalim, Andy. Linisin ang utak. Walang masamang sinasabi si Dr. Emione.
Wag madumi ang utak. Cool ka lang.

Alright!

Pumasok agad ako sa clinic ng cool lang. Yan, tama lang. Chill ka lang.

"So, doc, what's wrong again with my pet?" my pet na lang para sure. Naiilang di
n ako pag my berdy yung sinasabi ko. Kasalanan talaga 'to!

Nginitian ako ni Dr. Emione, "nothing. Your pet's fine. She just needs some qual
ity time with you."

Aaaah. Nagtatampo lang pala. Akala ko naman dinapuan na ng rabis. Grabe talaga y
ang si Berdy oh! Daig pa girlfriend kung pag alalahanin ako! Tsk.

Kinuha ko na si Berdy tapos nagbayad na din ako ng babayaran. Tsk. Ang gastos si
Berdy. Bayaan na nga, mayaman naman si papa eh. Haha!

"Berdy?" tawag ko sa kanya. Humarap naman sa akin. Good girlfriend, "wanna walk?
"

"Aw! Aw!"

Kinuha ko yung leash niya at naglakad kami. Hmmm. Saan kaya kami pupunta?

Ynna's Point of View

"Apo!"

"Lola.." i uttered, weakly. We're here at my grandparent's house in Davao. The d


octor said that i need fresh air and i need to get away from the things that giv
e me stress. So that's why we're here because i need to get away from Dana. She'
s my sheer stress giver.

She hugged me soon as my wheelchair landed on the floor of her mansion, "ang sab
i ng mama mo ayaw mo daw magpa therapy! Ang batang ito! Nawala na nga ang kapati
d mo, gusto mo pang sumunod! Balak mo ba kaming patayin sa sama ng loob??"

I smiled at her, "i'm fine, lola.. I don't want to give you false hope. I'm dyin
g so please just accept that fact.."

She hugged me even tighter and caressed my cheeks, "my sweet apo.. Sino ba ang m
ay gawa sa iyo niyan?"

I shook my head. I don't want to mention names. I don't want to say Grei's name.
He's suffering enough. Tama lang sa kanya yun! After raping me and causing me t
his-- virus, that's the least he can get! And Dana? I have Cyriel. I will not me
ss with her as long as Cyriel will stay by my side.

"Lola, he's Cyriel," i said as i motioned my hands towards him.

"Good evening po," Cyriel greeted her.

"Good evening din, Cyriel. Ikaw ba ang asawa ng apo ko?" she asked.

I braced myself. I don't know. I just feel like doing it since i have no idea wh
ether Cyriel will deny me or not. It kinda lessen the pain when he denies me..

He nodded, timidly.

"Nice to finally meet you. Tara at pumasok sa loob. Ynna, hija, nagpahanda ako n
g mga paborito mo.. Kumain na tayo ng hapunan.."

I shot him a look and said, "you still can go. I can manage myself."

I said that to him. This is the last chance, Cy. The last chance to turn you bac
k on me and be with Dana. Abandon me now kasi hindi ko alam kung kakayanin ko pa
na wala ka kung magtatagal ka pa sa tabi ko..

He smiled and started pushing my wheelchair, "i won't even if i can. Dito lang a
ko. 2 weeks."

Yeah. 2 weeks. 2 weeks then what? I'll be back to being the pathetic Ynna again.

Sara's Point of View

"What about baby crib??" sabi ni Kim.

Nandito kami sa cafeteria ng school. Ewan ko ba, masaya naman ako para kay Andy.
Sino bang hindi magiging masaya eh magiging tatay na pala yung isa sa barkada n
amin, di ba? Pero kasi.. nag aalala ako para kay Dana.

Best friend ko yan, syempre. Kilala ko yan. Simula first year ako na kasama niya
kaya alam ko na may gumugulo sa isip niya.

"Crib?? That's a good idea, Kim! For sure matutuwa si Andy! Dakilang kuripot yun

eh!" sabi naman ni Nof.

Wonder what they are doing? Nag uusap sila sa ireregalo sa baby ni Andy! Baliw t
alaga! Eh ni hindi nga namin alam kung ilang buwan ng buntis yung girlfriend eh!
Tsaka kung babae ba o lalaki. Tch. Baliw na kaibigan talaga.

Naglabas ng phone si Kim, "so, baby crib, baby dresses, bottles, diapers? Ano pa
?"

I stood up, "labas muna ako."

"Ok," sabi naman ni Kim. Busy kasi sa pagpplano ng ibibigay.

"Sama ka, Dana?"

She nodded and stood up. Naglakad kami palabas ng cafeteria. Crowded din kasi si
nce lunch time na.

"So.." pagsisimula ko.

"Hmm?"

"Ano'ng masasabi mo sa balita ni Nof?" i asked her since hindi kami nakapag usap
ng matino last time nung nasa Area06 kami.. Everything went.. so fast. Si Andy

magiging tatay? Wow.

She shrugged, "good news."

I raised a brow, "talaga?"

She looked at me and said, "best friend kita, di ba? You should know what i feel
."

I gave her a weak smile, "oo nga eh. Ang hirap din eh. Best friend kita kaya nas
asaktan din ako, Dana. Alam kong ako yung isa sa tumulong para magkaayos kayo ni
Cyriel pero.."

Hindi ko natapos yung sinasabi ko. Papaano ko ba sisimulan.

"But what?" tanong ni Dana.

Huminga ako ng malalim, "pero.. alam kong nahihirapan ka ngayon dahil dun.. Sorr
y, Dana.. Alam naman natin na ikaw ang mahal niya pero hindi niya talaga kayang
iwan si Ynna eh.. Sorry, Dana.. Sorry kung nahihirapan kang makihati dahil sa ka
nya.. Sorry kasi hindi kita matulungan.."

She gave me a reassuring smile, "ano ba, sabi niyo nga, i asked for this so i sh
ould live with this. Besides, past is past. Move on move on din."

"Sure ka?"

She chuckled, "haay, best friend talaga kita. I'll be honest with you, i'm not o
kay. I certainly am not. I'm hurt."

Nginitian ko siya, "obvious naman eh."

Tumingin siya sa akin, "talaga? Obvious ba talaga?" i nodded, "eh bakit parang h
indi sila nakakahalata? Bakit parang ang saya saya pa din nila?" she said, perta
ining to Kim and Nof na masayang nag uusap sa mga ibibigay nila sa anak ni Andy.

I sat on one of the benches sa labas ng cafeteria, "magiging honest din ako sa'y
o ha?"

Tumango siya.

"Kahit na nasasaktan ka pa, aaminin ko na masaya pa rin ako para kay Andy."

Nagsalita siya, "Sara naman eh.. Parang ang sama sama ko naman na hindi ako masa
ya.. Gusto kong maging masaya para sa kanya but i just can't! Alam mo yun? I lef
t him to be happy with Cyriel but what happened? Am i happy? I don't know, maybe
yes, maybe no! I am uncertain of everything kasi wala na naman siya sa tabi ko.
Yes, i got to be with him for three goddamned day pero after that? Wala na nama
n. Pero si Andy? He got to be happy with someone.. And now, he's gonna have a ch
ild.. I left him to be happy but in the end, siya pa yung naging masaya. Ang sam
a ko no?"

I shrugged, "normal lang yan. Bitter ka eh."

Tumingin siya sa akin, "bitter?"

Tumango ako, "oo, bitter. You loved him, Dana. Normal lang yan. Ewan ko, pati ak
o naguguluhan na sa'yo eh. Ayoko nang may kampihan kasi nahihirapan din ako. Si
Cyriel naman din kasi ang daming ibang priorities, ikaw naman ayaw mo ng taken f
or granted ka. Alam mo, Dana. Bagay ka pala kay Andy, ngayon ko lang napansin. K
asi kay Andy, lagi kang papansinin. Di ba nga sabi ko sa'yo nun na patay na pata
y sa'yo yun? Kaya perfect match kayong dalawa. Pero anong magagawa eh si Cyriel
pa din talaga eh."

She smiled at me. Haay, Dana. Hanggang kailan kaya magiging rollercoaster ride a
ng buhay mo?

**
Nof's Point of View

Lumabas sila DK.

"Psst," napatingin si Kim sa akin.

"Bakit?" she asked me.

"Bitter si DK! Hahaha!" tapos tumawa ako ng tumawa.

"Ay, di ka naman masyadong masaya niyan?" she said, with overflowing sarcasm.

She rolled her eyes, the bratinella way, "ay, pwedeng kalimutan mo muna yung sar
castic side mo? Kahit ngayon lang? Nakakatuwang makitang bitter si DK!! Lalo na
pag namumula yung tenga niya! It's just so priceless!!" i said.

"Ang sama mo, alam mo yun?" she said to me.

I stucked out my tongue, "as if ako lang ang masama. If i know, tuwang tuwa ka h
abang nakikita ang bitter na mukha ni DK!"

She smiled at me, "gaga ka talaga! Sadista at heart ka!"

I smiled as i slowly sipped my smoothie, "born that way. Anyways, paano natin ip
apadala yung regalo natin?" i asked her.

Ewan ko ba pero nahahawa ako sa excitement ni Kim! Nung una naman, gusto ko lang
inisin si DK, pero ngayon, excited na talaga ako!! Sana babae ang baby ni Andy
para may gagawin kaming barbie ni Kim!! Yosh! Nakaka excite talaga!

"Hmmm. Gusto mo dun na lang natin iorder then ipadala na lang nila sa bahay nila
Andy. Do you know where he lives?" she asked me.

Oo nga noh. Hindi ko pa pala alam yung address ni Guzman! Aish! Pati nga pala nu
mber niya hindi ko din alam!

"Ay, hindi ko alam eh. Tanungin ko na lang pag nakausap ko siya," i said.

"Pero Nof, sure ka na buntis yung girlfriend ni Andy?"

I smiled at her. Hindi din ako sure eh. Haha! Bayaan na. Basta para sa amin, lal
o na kay Dana, masaya na si Andy. It's up to her kung magiging masaya siya or wh
at. Playing cupid pa din pala ako. Tsk.

Andy's Point of View

~My Berdy is my best friend~

Lakad lakad lang sa shore. Hmmm. Silence and solitude at its finest. Buti na lan
g at Glorie free ang umaga at hapon ko. Ayos to!

"Napapagod ka na ba, Berdy?"

"Aw! Aw!"

"Hmmm. Pagod na nga ang girlfriend ko. Sige, upo muna tayo," sabi ko tapos nagla
kad kami papunta sa bench dun sa park sa malapit.

"Uy, Berdy! Wag kang tumakbo!"

Aish! Akala ko makakapagpahinga na ako. Takbo ng takbo naman si Berdy eh!

O_______O

"Louie??"

"Glorie? And---"

"Hello! Are you a friend of my mom?" sabi nung batang lalaki na blue eyes at blo
ndie.

O_________O

Tumingin ako kay Glorie, "uhm, Louie.. this is Andrei, my son.. Andrei, this is
Louie, my boss.."

Ay anak naman ng meant to be oh! Talagang kapangalan ko pa ang anak niya?? At ma


y anak na talaga si Glorie???

63rd Chapter

"Hey, what's up?"

"Nothing. Why are you here?" i asked Josh.

Nandito ako sa CPark. Wala lang, boring kasi. Wala si Sara kasi busy sa exams ha
nggang ngayon! Come to think of it, three weeks na siyang busy sa exam ah? Ano y
un, death wish? Tapos si Kim ayun, busy kay Clarence! Si Nof? Ewan ko sa babaeng
yun, may ka date na naman. Si Dave naman sa training sa company nila. And si Cy
riel? MIA lang sa Davao. Haaay, nakakamiss! Punta kaya akong Davao?

"Nothing, just collecting," sabi niya then he winked at me.

"Collecting? Hmmm," i said, playing innocent. I've dated many guys during my dar
k age and Josh is just like them, half British, pure flirt. I don't know but i'v
e got fettish for British accent. Kahit yata curse ang sabihin nila, ang sexy pa
din ng dating. I'm a sucker for British accent.

He chuckled and said, "ooh, innocent D. I'm turned on."

I shook my head, "flirty jerk. Come on, i'm bored as hell. So yeah, you can coll
ect your hundred thousand date."

We stood up and walked towards his car. Hmm. Impressive yellow Lamborghini. But
what can i expect? Henares eh, wealth runs in the blood.

"So, where are we going?" i asked him.

He winked at me. Again. What's with Josh and his winks?

"You'll see," he murmured.

I just sat comfortably in his car and waited. Better make it worth it, Josh. Hun
dred thousand ang sinayang mo dito.

Andy's Point of View

*___*

Blue eyes, blonde hair, cute na cute na bata. Anak ba talaga ni pouty 'to? Ang c
ute nung bata eh! Ang layo kay pouty! Baka naman ampon niya 'to??

"What, Louie? You're scaring me with your stares!!" she then pouted. Tsk. Pouty
forever talaga.

Tinitigan ko siya at sinabi, "he's is your child?" sabi ko sa kanya sabay turo d
un sa batang masayang nakikipaglaro kay Berdy.

She pouted, "yes, Louie! He's my child!!"

"Tss."

"Hey, you're offending me now, Louie!!"

I rolled my eyes. Leche! Nababading na ako sa kasasama sa Glorie na ito ha! "I o
ffended you? In what way, mommy Glorie??"

She sighed. Aba bago 'to! Nagbuntong hininga si Ms. Sunshine! Improvement!!

"What's with the big sigh?" tanong ko sa kanya.

Ngumiti siya, "nothing. I'm just tired."

Tapos naging masaya na ulit yung mukha niya. Tignan mo 'to! Psychotic yata 'tong
lagi kong kasama! Mamaya pagbalik ko ng Pinas, psychotic na din ako! Type ba ni

Dana yung mga psycho? Hehe. De, joke lang po.

"Freak show," sabi ko sa kanya.

"Now, that's really offending me, Louie! You did not call me a freak show in fro
nt of my son!!" sabi niya. Hahaha! Nakakatawa talaga tong magalit, nanliliit yun
g mata niya!

I shrugged, "yeah, i think i just did. So, who's the father?" tanong ko sa kanya
. Sino kaya ang tatay ni Andrei? Leche! Nalilito ako! Ako si Andrei, di ba? Tapo
s si Andrei din siya? Eh di si Andrei kaming dalawa? Ay, labo!

Natahimik siya.

Shit. Na offend ko ba siya??

"Sorry, i didn't mean to be so nosy," paliwanag ko. Ang insensitive ko din minsa
n. Bwisit!

Ngumiti siya. Sus. Praktisado niya na talaga yung pagngiti. Pero halata namang f
ake, sa isang buwan na magkasama kami, alam ko na yung fake sa totoo. Talino ko
yata, gwapo pa! Lethal combination! Hahaha!

"That's fine, Louie. You're not Mr. Grumpy for nothing," sabi niya.

I gasped, leche parang bading lang, "now that's really offending, Glorie. You di
d not insult me in front of my girlfriend!" sabi ko. Hehehe. Ginaya ko lang yung
sinabi niya. Hindi na ako makaisip ng matinong one liner. Hindi pa din masyadon
g na process ng utak ko na may anak na pala si pouty. Sabagay, isang buwan pa la
ng naman kaming magkakilala.

Tumawa siya. Eto totoong tawa. Ay, teka nga, Andy? Hobby nang pansinin ang kilos
ni pouty?? Ano ko? In like sa kanya? Leche lang oh! Hindi pwede! One month pa l
ang kaming break ni Dana. Naniniwala yata ako sa three month rule! Si Dana lang
hindi. One day pa lang eh. Hehe. De, joke lang, Dana. Mahal kaya kita, tignan mo
lagi kitang naiisip.

Ayoko pa talaga. Three months muna. Para naman kasing hindi ko minahal si Dana k
ung papalitan ko siya agad agad. Respeto lang. Pero iba naman yung kay Dana kasi
alam naman namin na si Cyriel talaga. Kumabaga, subsititute lang ako. Hotter su
bsitute nga lang. Hehe.

"It's a long story, Louie."

"I have all the time," sabi ko tapos kinain ko yung ice cream. Nandito kasi kami
sa park sa tabi ng beach. Nag uusap lang kami ni pouty habang nakikipaglaro si
Andrei. Leche. Ang cute na bata! Gusto ko din gumawa ng anak-- este, gusto ko ng
anak. Ang shrek na talaga oh!

She shrugged tapos naupo, "it's you know.. teeanage love affair gone wrong," sab
i niya tapos ngumiti siya.

Tahimik lang ako. Ano bang sasabihin ko? Malay ko ba sa gone wrong eh taga supor
ta kaya ako ng RH Bill. Protektado ako.. dati. Hehehe.

"I met him at one of the places i used to worked. He's the son of the owner. He'

s nice and charming and good looking. The typical guy any girl would fall for,"
sabi niya. Teka, ako yata yung dinedescribe niya. Hehe. Ano bang nangyayari sa'k
in??

"Then?" sabi ko. Nakapa cliff hanger naman kasi. Ayaw pang ituloy sa kung kailan
ginawa si Andrei!!

"We dated. We dated for about three months when he.. got me well, into an accide
nt. That's the term he used. Andrei was an accident," sabi niya tapos namumula y
ung mata niya.

Inabot ko sa kanya yung panyo ko, "here."

Inabot niya naman, "thanks, Louie."

Pinanood ko lang siya habang nagpupunas ng panyo. Tignan mo nga naman, may ganit
o pala sa buhay ni pouty. Akala ko plain vanilla lang ang buhay niya. Hindi pala
. Tatalunin pa yata yung kumplikado naming buhay nila Dana eh. Tsk.

Hindi ko na siya tinanong. Bahala na siya kung gusto niyang ituloy. Naiintindiha
n ko naman na hindi madaling ikwento yung mga ganun na bagay..

"He left me after he found out i was pregnant.. It hurts, Louie. It hurts that h
e didn't want to be with me after he found out about that.. But it killed me tha
t he didn't take Andrei as his own," sabi niya tapos umiyak na siya ng umiyak.

Lumapit ako sa kanya at niyakap siya, "ssh. Stop crying, Glorie.."

Iyak pa din siya ng iyak.

Haaay, ayoko ng babaeng umiiyak. Naiinis ako. Nakakainis na yung ibang lalaki wa
lang ginawa kundi paiyakin sila. Nabbwisit ako sa ganun!

"It's his child, Louie.. It's his blood.. How could he not be his child? They lo
ok alike.. He's his perfect resemblance!"

"Ssssh," sabi ko as i caressed her back. Iyak ng iyak. Hindi na makahinga eh. Ts
k! Mamaya kailanganin pa nito ng CPR eh! Eh di nakahalik siya sa akin ng libre.
Tsk. Di pwede. 50,000 'to oy.

After a minute, natigil na din siya, "i'm sorry, Louie. I don't usually talk abo
ut him like that.."

Ngumiti na lang ako, "it's fine. I know you're crazy. Nothing new."

Hinampas niya ako. Ang sakit!

Tumawa na lang ako. Baliw talaga eh. Tsk.

Pero ngayon alam ko na kung bakit kahit binu bwisit niya ako araw araw, natutuwa
pa din akong kasama siya. Si Lynne pala. Akalain mo, hindi lang siya kahawig ng
first love ko, pareho pa sila ng buhay. Anak ng meant to be talaga!

Dana's Point of View

"Josh? Bar? Seriously? A hundred thousand all down the drain for a night out?" i
asked him. We're her inside some high end club. Ewan ko ba sa Josh na 'to. Weir
do.

He hushed me, "sshh, D. It's great in here. Let's get drunk and dance. My dad's
been getting on my nerves and i need to take it out."

I sighed, "fine. All drink's on you."

He shook his head, "sometimes i really want to ask your mom if she gives you mon
ey."

"Huh?"

"Because you're always making me libre you," he said.

I laughed. Really, really hard! You should have heard how he said libre! Hahaha!
Trying hard masyado! Katuwa!

"There, there. You're really friends with Nof. You both like to laugh at me."

"Sorry," sabi ko habang sinusubukang pigilin yung tawa. Hahaha! Cute cute kasi n
g salita niyang Tagalog na pilit!

"It's fine. Let's get you a drink?"

"Tonic," i said.

He rolled his eyes, "come on. Harder?"

"Fine, fine. Whatever you want."

He went to the bartender and ordered. I went and sat down and got my phone.

Hindi nagtetext si Cyriel. Busy siguro talaga? Hmmm. Sabagay, ang laki naman kas
i ng business nila. Nagtaka pa ako. Sheez. Si Dave at Cyriel nagttrabaho na. Kam
i na nila Kim ang next. Nakakakaba!

"Here," sabi niya habang nilapag niya sa table yung mga kinuha niya mula dun sa
bartender.

"What's that?"

He acted like he was thinking, "hmmm. Let me think.. It's Bourbon with a twist,"
he said then he gave me a glass where he poured some of his Bourbon "with a twi
st".

"So, cheers?" i asked him.

I was about to drink what he gave me when i stopped, halfway, "you didn't put an
y of your herbal stuffs in here, right?" i asked him. The last thing i want in m
y life right now is a totally uncalled for accident.

He smirked, "you know me too well, D.. But no, i didn't put any herbal in there.
I've been sober for months. Give this man some credit," he said.

"Fine. Credit it is," i said then i drank what he gave me.

"To something better," he said.

"To something better," i said then we clanked our glasses.

We're drinking casually. I mean, we're friends. Pero yung ibang tao naman kasi d
ito, grabe makatingin! Fine, fine. I get it, model si Josh kaya kung makatingin
lalo na yung mga babae! Kainis! Parang wala ako sa high end club ah. Cheap ng mg
a babae dito eh.

I tried my best to ignore them and started a chitchat with Josh.

"So.." i said. Paano ko ba siya tatanungin tungkol kay Ynna? I mean, gustung gus
to ko nang mawala siya sa buhay ko. For good. But i don't wish her harm. I think
malaki naman ang Pilipinas para hindi kami magtagpo ng landas, right? "how's Yn
na?"

Tinignan niya ako na parang nagulat sa sinabi ko, "where's that coming from?"

"Come on, Josh. Just want to hear some news," i replied.

"Well, for starter, i don't know where she is. I mean, we're not close, D. We're
bloodrelated, there's where it ends."

I nodded, "i see. So, how about Cyriel? Do you still see him visiting? I mean, a
week ago?" i said, fishing for information.

He shook his head, "no, i don't think so. Ynna's missing in action, and as for t
hat boyfriend of yours, i have no freaking idea where he is."

I rolled my eyes, "just when i thought you have an amazing stalker skills," i jo
ked. Lagi niya kasing alam kung saan ako hahanapin, malay ko ba kung talent niya
yun?

"That only works on girls, D. I don't stalk boys. That's for you to do," he said
, chuckling. I think alcohol is going in his system.

"Fine, fine."

He stood up.

"Why?" i asked.

"Come, i don't like it in here anymore. So many eyes on us," he said and started
walking. I get him. Yung babae talaga nakatingin sa amin. Well, not that i can
blame them. Josh is such a looker. Kung girlfriend lang ako nito, kanina pa ako
na offend sa tingin nung mga babae. Eye rape at its finest.

We reached his yello Lamborghini and said, "you drive," then hinagis niya yung k
eys niya towards me.

"You sure?" i asked. Yosh! First time kong makakadrive nito!

"Yeah. Just don't put any scratch on it, D. I'm obsessed with my cars."

I started the ignition. Fast and sleek. I want this car!!

"So, where are we going?" i asked him.

Nakasandal siya sa sasakyan, hilo na yata tong kasama ko. Tsk. "can you drive me
to my hotel? I forgot something."

Hotel?

"Why?" i asked.

"I'm staying there. I told you, dad's getting in my nerves so i opted to stay in
a hotel. He's so bothersome, D. He'll kill me with his words."

Haay. I see myself in Josh. Ganyan din kami ng dad ko dati. Good thing we're on
the right track now.

"Sure."

Then we drove towards his hotel.

Ynna's Point of View

"Ang ganda dito noh?" i slowly said as we were staring at the field of plantatio
n in front of us.

He nodded, "yes. It's good for your recovery."

I shrugged. I still feel weak from all the drugs i've been taking.

He kneeled in front of me because i'm on my wheelchair. Yes, i can't walk. That'


s how weak i am. I feel pain most of the time. It's agonizing and it's slowly ki
lling me.

"Bakit ayaw mong magpagamot?" he asked me for the nth time. Fort the past week n
a nandito kami, he's been bugging me about this. I gave up. Hindi ba nila mainti
ndihan yun? Ano bang labas ko sa sakit ko? HIV and cancer? Sa tingin ba nila may
pag asa pang mabuhay ako? I don't think so. There's no chance in hell that i'll
survive.

"I'm a hopeless case."

He held my hand like he's been doing everytime, "kasi gusto mong maging ganyan.
Come on, Ynna. You're better than this. Nagawa mo nga akong ilayo kay Dana ng is
ang taon! Nasan na yung mga diabolical plans na sinasabi mo? Wala na? Ganun na l
ang? Hihintayin mo na lang na mamatay ka??"

I smiled weakly and summoned all my strength to speak, "yes, Cyriel. I gave up.
You asked for this, and i'm giving it to you. You're free."

I really meant it this time. I give up. Matagal na. The moment he walked out of
my door, he already lost me for good. I know he wants this. He always wanted me
gone and now has has it. I'll be gone soon. All i'm asking is for him to give th
is to me and let me die hating Dana. It's the only piece of consolation i could
ever have. The liberty of hating her.

Why i hate her? She took everything away from me. How could i possibly not hate
her for that?? Then i'm dying.. and my parents. I love them and i know how it wo
uld pain them to have both their children gone all because of her. Directly or i
ndirectly, she caused all of this. She made my life a living hell so i made hers
as well. She killed my sister. She killed her.

He smiled, "reverse psychology?"

I smiled, "perhaps."

He sat beside me, "no need, Ynna. I promised you i won't leave you. I don't brea
k any promises."

"You broke one," i told him.

He looked puzzled.

"You promised you'll never love me but look, i think you did."

Fun Facts:

Hello! Dahil special day ko ngayon, i'll share some interesting facts about FHAD
GK!

Simulan natin sa story.. (mamaya sa characters and their portrayer! I know you w
ant it *winks*)

Actually, nagstart ang story na 'to nung nagbabasa ako ng Practicing my first re
al kiss ni @seeyara. Hehehe. Fan ako nung stories niya. I think way back nung fo
urth year pa ako 'to. Then pinilit ako ni Ynna na magsulat ng story then boom..
nagawa ang FHADGK.

Pansin niyo naman parang related yung title kasi about sa kiss. May mga nagsabi
na. Sheet. Nasabihan pa nga ako ng plagiarizer!! Kaloka! Hahaha! But i proved th
em wrong kasi magkaiba naman talaga. Duh! Nagbabasa ako nung PMFRK noh!! Fangirl
ako ni Mark Villareal kaya hindi ko kokopyahin yun. Di ako ganun. Ibang story y

65th Chapter

"Cyriel!!"

I ran towards him and plunged myself and gave him a rib breaking hug.

"I missed you bad," i uttered.

He hugged me back, "i missed you, too," then he looked at me, "pumayat ka ah. Hi
ndi ka ba kumakain?" he asked me.

I shook my head, "no. You weren't checking up on me. You've been a bad fiance, C
y. You neglected me for two weeks," i said, kidding. But i was partly serious, h
e didn't call me for the last week. Well, i've understand that. He's busy with w
hatever he's doing. No harm done. All work.

"About that, sorry. But, can we talk?" he said.

I don't know pero i don't want to hear phrases such as can we talk. Everytime i
hear that, something wrong's bound to happen.

"Yeah, sure," i said then we headed to some isolated place in our campus.

We sat under one of the trees. It feels calming.

"How's school?" he asked.

I shrugged, "same old. Ganun pa din though puro internship na lang naman kami th
is sem. Prerogative na lang kung papasok pa," i said as a matter of fact. Truth
be told, hindi ko na nga kailangan pumasok eh. I've earned my units and internsh
ip and final portfolio na lang ang kailangan ko para grumaduate. The courses i h
ave now are just extra courses.The things thats been holding me here are my frie
nds. Hindi ko naman kasabay sila ggraduate eh. Sara's course is obviously five
years while Kim and Nof, next, next sem pa sila. I'll graduate alone but whateve
r.

He nodded, "san ka mag iintern?" he asked.

"I don't know yet. Baka kay mom? I'm still weighing the options," i told him.

There's some offer na internship sa Paris and stuffs since fashion's big there.
There's also offer from renowed designers here in the country. Pero ang pinakapi
nag iisipan ko ay yung kay mom. Sabi niya kasi kung gusto ko daw bang mag person
al manage ng bagong bukas niyang branch sa Miami. I don't know yet since malayo
siya. Pero baka pumayag din ako since it's a big opportunity, right? Tsaka nasa
Cali naman si Andy eh.. I think Miami's far enough para hindi muna kami magkita.
I mean, the wound's still fresh. In the right time, magkikita din kami.

"How about you?" i asked him, "what are your plans?"

"Company stuff. The usual," he said.

I feel something's off. Something's wrong with Cyriel.

"Hey," i said then held his face, "what's bothering you?" i asked him.

I'm trying to have an open communication with him. Eto yung paraan para maging o
kay kami, di ba? Talking about everything. Ayoko na kasi ng secrets. Lies are st
ill lies even though you did them for a greater cause.

He took a deep breath, "it's Ynna."

Just then, my breathing hitched. It's her. Again.

I calmed myself. She's old news. Kahit anong sabihin ni Cyriel, paniniwalaan ko,
iintindihin ko. That's what a good girlfriend does, right? I'll keep my mind op
en for every possibilities. She's just sick and pathetic.

I tried to smile, "what about her, Cy?"

He held my hand, "she's really sick."

I nodded, "alam ko. Ano'ng bago dun?"

"She's worse, Dana."

I nodded, "oo nga. It's given, Cy. Alam ko na yun. Ano ba yung gusto mong sabihi
n?"

He seemed to be gathering all his strength to tell me what he's trying to tell m
e. And.. i felt scared. For the nth time, i feel scared and insecure of Ynna. Sh
e holds Cyriel. Kahit hindi ko aminin, she has something na hindi siya kayang iw
an niya.

"I was with her.."

He lied.

"I was with her for the past two weeks, Dana."

I smiled weakly, "so you lied.."

He nodded.

"It's fine. You just did that to protect me," i said.

Umiling siya, "you don't get it, Dana. I lied. I lied to you because i'm scared
that--"

I cut him off, "because you're scared that you will hurt me. I get it, Cy. It's
okay, really," i said, trying to keep my composure.

He held my hands, "it's not what i meant. Dana.. i don't want to be unfair to yo
u.. let's take a break."

Sht.

I just felt my world crashing.

Let's take a break.

Let's take a fcking break!

I laughed, "what the fck, Cyriel? Niloloko mo ba ako?"

He looked me in the eyes, "hindi kita niloloko, Dana. I'm asking for a break. Hi
ndi ako nakikipag hiwalay sa'yo. Just keep things slow. Yun lang."

I sobbed quietly, "bakit? Am i pressuring you? Hindi naman! I've been understand
ing you, Cyriel! Hindi ako malawak mag isip pero dahil sa'yo, pinipilit kong pal
awakin yung isip ko! Hindi na nga ako nagagalit kay Ynna, di ba? I've been reall
y understanding, Cyriel.. And this is what i get after waiting for you for two w
eeks? A fcking break?"

He chased my hands, "i'm doing this for you, Dana. We both need a break. Alam ko
nalilito ka kay Andy.."

I slapped him, "don't you dare turn this against me! Hindi ako ang nagsinungalin
g sa ating dalawa, Cyriel! Ikaw yun, hindi ako."

He motioned his hands towards me but i slapped it away, "no, no, Dana. God! Inti
ndihin mo ako. Please."

I sighed in defeat. I sat down and listen to whatever he's got to say. Tama nama
n ako, nothing good will follow the phrase 'let's talk.'

"For once, let's clear everything, Cyriel," i said.

He nodded.

"You lied to me. That's fine. Just don't use that as a reason for us to take a b
reak.. Please.. I sacrificed too much.. I don't deserve that.." i said.

"Dana.. i lied to you. I don't deserve you," he said.

"You don't get to decide who deserves me, Cy. That's for me to decide."

He sighed, "i lied to you a thousand times. Yung dati, oo, i lied for you. I lie
d kasi ayokong masaktan ka.. And you know what? That's the thing i regret the mo
st. Yun yung simula ng pagkawala mo sa akin. I let you drift from me, Dana. I le
t us fall apart. I chose for that to happen."

I held his hand, "then let's start over again."

I don't want us to end like this. I won't give up just like this. No, i won't.

"Hindi mo ba maintindihan? Iba na ngayon, Dana! Everything changed."

"Wala namang nagbago, Cy."

"But something changed, Dana.."

"Then tell me! What changed?"

He inhaled, "i. I changed. I've been denying this all the time. I love you, Dana
. God knows i do. But my reasons for hurting you changed. I lied to you kasi nat
atakot ako.. Natatakot ako na baka pigilan mo ako.. Baka pigilan mo ako na makas
ama si Ynna.."

There.

He said it.

He wants to be with Ynna.

Is this what i get for hurting Andy? Is this what he felt when i broke his heart
? If yes, i feel sorry. Because it hurts. It really hurts. I feel crushed.

I looked at him with tears flowing. Bakit ko pa itatago na naiiyak ako? What dif
ference would it make? I feel hurt. I feel wronged. I feel fcked and played with
.

"Since when?" i asked him nonchalantly.

"Hindi ko alam," he replied.

I looked up, in attempt to slow down the tears, "sigurado ka?"

He nodded. And again, he broke me.

"Cyriel, there's a thin line between pity and love. Do you know where you stand?
"

He looked at me.

I continued, "answer me when you're sure. Because if you'll say yes, you'll gonn
a lose me for good."

Andy's Point of View

"Let's go shopping, Louie!" sabi ni Glorie.

Haaayst. Paskong pasko na ah! Ang lamig na dito eh!

"Why? Do you have money?" i said to her. Tsk. Tong pouty na 'to! Lakas loob maka
aya ng shopping eh wala namang pera!

She pouted, as usual, "you have lots."

I rolled my eyes, "tsk. I thought so. You want to work for me for my money.. an
d my body. Very bad pouty!"

She laughed. Baliw na babae!

"Yeah, right, Louie. As if i would want you for your body," she said tapos tinig
nan niya yung katawan ko. Ay leche! Eye rape!!

"Pervert!"

"Your personal perv," sabi niya.

=____=

"Momma!!"

>.>

Napatingin ako.

"Andrei, baby," sabi ni Glorie tapos binuhat niya si Andrei. Oh, bakit nandito y
ung kakambal ko??

"Louie?"

>.>

"Can Andrei stay here with me? Lawrence has some matters to deal with.. He can't
take care of Andrei. I promise he'll behave. Right, Andrei?"

"Yes, momma!"

*O*

Ang cute ni Andrei! Gusto kong gumawa ng bata!!

"Sure. Sure," nasabi ko. Leche! Hirap tanggihan ng batang cute. =___=

"Yey!" sabi ni pouty sabay talon. Baliw. Mamaya malaglag pa si Andrei, magkaron
pa ng hemorrhage sa utak kagaya ng nanay niyang baliw. "I'll just cook, Louie. L
ook after Andrei."

Ano pa nga ba?

65th Chapter

"Nakakainis!" Kim complained.

"Okay lang yan, Kim. I'll instagram our escapades para hindi ka huli sa balita,"
Nof teased. Bakit naman ba kasi gustung gusto nilang sumama sa akin? Hindi nama
n ako magbabakasyon dun, internship ang gagawin ko.

"So mean, Nof!! DK naman kasi!! Can't you postpone your trip? Gusto kong sumama
eh!" Kim whined.

"We're not going on a vacation, Kim. Internship, work, experience. You'll just g
et bored there," i assured her.

"I know i won't get bored!" she said with conviction.

"Bakit parang sure na sure ka naman yatang hindi ka mabobore dun?" i asked her w
hile continuing to arrange some of the things that i will bring.

She smiled, a creepy one though, "basta. I know things will get interesting."

**
Nof's Point of View

Si Kim talaga oh! Ang obvious naman eh.

=___=

Baka makahalata si DK niyan sa mga binabalak ko. Hehehe. Playing cupids lang ako
. Alam ko na kasi ang life's mission ko, ang guluhin ang utak ni DK. Habang nand
un kami, ibubugaw ko si Andy para malito siya pero at the same time, ipapaalala
ko sa kanya na may girlfriend na si Andy. Yung Berdy? Tsk. Weird name pero who c
ares?

"Syempre," i butted in, "things never get boring as long as i'm there," i said.
Sana mabasa ni DK yung underlying message dun sa sinabi ko. Kumbaga sa buhay niy
a, ako ang game player. I assure DK na hindi magiging boring ang stay namin dun.
Not even one second boring.

"Yeah, right," DK said. Busy siya kasi nag aayos siya ng gamit niya. Tss. Bibili
na lang ako dun. Hmmm. Great idea, Nof. Isasama ko na lang magshopping yung gir
lfriend ni Andy para naman makilala ko kung ano ba ang gusto nun. Who knows? Bak
a maging close pa kami.

"So, bukas na ang alis natin?" i asked again.

She nodded, "yup. 7 p.m. flight. Three countries stopovers leg then Miami bound.
"

I smiled, "okay. See you tomorrow, DK."

"Bye din, DK," Kim said.

We walked past through her doors. Nandito kasi kami sa bahay nila. Just spying a
nd whatevers. You know, our life's mission is to make DK's life thrilling.

"So, hindi mo talaga ako isasama dun??" Kim complained again. Ang kulit ng babae
ng to!!

I faced her, "Kimberly Joyce, ikaw ang may gagawin kaya hindi ka makakasama. Don
't pester me. It's not my fault na madami kang hahabuling exams due.. to your st
upid grades."

"Kainis ka!!"

"The feeling is mutual, dear."

We went to her convertible and went to the mall. Pupuntahan lang namin yung boyf
riend or husband niya dahil miss na miss niya na daw. Ew.

"Punta lang ako sa office ni boyfie. Dito ka lang or what?" she asked me.

I waved my hand in a dismissing manner, "no, go ahead. Ayokong masuka sa harap n


iyo," i said.

"Bwisit!!" she said and then stomped away. Kasi naman, ayoko silang makita ni Cl
arence. Hindi naman sa dahil single ako or what. But really, para kang nanonood
ng live show pag magkasama sila. They don't even care kahit nandun ako. =___= Ma
ke out at its best.

I went window shopping habang wala pa si Kim. She told me to wait for her since
pupunta daw siya sa bahay namin for strategic planning. Hindi na din ako bibili
since i'll be going to Miami tomorrow. Yosh!

calling..
Kim

"Why?"

("Where are you? Wala si Boyfie sa office eh.")

"Forever 21. Punta ka ba dito?"

("Yup. Wait for me.")

I waited for her. Tss. Ang bagal talaga maglakad ni Kim. 10 minutes na ko dito a
h.

"Nof," she said while panting, "sorry. Nasa fourth floor pa kasi yung office ni
boyfie. Puno lahat ng lifts."

I rolled my eyes, "nako. Don't explain. Uwi na tayo."

"Wait lang!! Magkasama daw si boyfie at Cyriel eh. Let's find them. Pretty pleas
e?? With cherry on top??"

Ew. Nagpretty eyes pa si Kim. Yuck.

"Fine."

**
Andy's Point of View

"No, Louie. I promise i didn't buy those things!!" sabi ni Pouty sabay taas pa n
g kanang kamay.

=___=

Sino naman bumili nito?? Wala namang bata sa bahay ko. Tsaka naka address sa aki
n eh. Di ba ako si Andrei Louie Guzman?? Tsaka ay leche! Ano namang gagawin ko s
a napakadaming laruan na yun?? Hindi naman ako magtatayo ng playground dito!!

"Yey!! So many toys!!"

=___=

Si Andrei lang ang natutuwa sa mga nangyayari.

"Baby, it's not yours. Don't touch them," sabi ni pouty tapos nilayo niya si And
rei sa mga laruan.

"Uwaaaaa!! You're so mean, momma!!"

=___=

Bakit pakiramdam ko masama akong tao pag pinatapon ko lang lahat ng laruan??

Lumapit ako kay Andrei.

"Hoy," sabi ko.

"Why?" sabi niya habang nagpupunas ng luha.

"Do you want those toys?"

Tumango siya, "yes!! I want those toys!!"

"Okay. You can have them."

"Really??"

Bakit kumikislap pa yung mata niya?? Ganun niya kagusto yung mga laruan??

"In one condition," sabi ko.

"What, daddy?"

O_____O

"Daddy??"

Tumango siya, "yes. You are my daddy, right??"

Tumakbo si Pouty papunta kay Andrei, "he's not your dad, Andrei. I told you he's
already dead."

"Uwaaaaa!! But i want him to be my dad!! He's handsome like me!! I want him, mom
ma!!"

O____O

"I'm so sorry, Louie. I'll make it clear to him that you're not his dad," sabi n
iya tapos binuhat niya si Louie palabas sa porch.

Daddy??

Hininto ko sila, "wait, pouty."

"Huh?"

"It's fine," sabi ko.

"Fine with what, Louie?"

Tinignan ko si Andrei na namumula kaka iyak, "he can call me dad."

Nagpumiglas si Andrei kay Pouty kaya nakababa siya tapos tumakbo siya papunta sa
akin tapos niyakap yung binti ko, "daddy? Yey!! My dad is handsome like me!!"

Haha. Anak ko yata talaga si Andrei. Pareho kaming gwapo.

**
Clarence's Point of View

"What brings you here, brother?"

Nandito si Cyriel. Himala. Tagal kong di nakita 'to eh.

"Pwede kang makausap?"

Tumango ako, "sandali lang. Tatapusin ko lang 'to."

Ang daming paperworks. Tss. Lalong lumaki yung family business namin simula nung
nag invest yung mga Henares. Kahit nakkbwisit si Payatot, hindi ko naman maitat
anggi na malaki talaga yung naitutulong ng pamilya nila.

Nung natapos ko na lahat ng kailangan pirmahan, "Ayu, please cancel my lunch mee
ting with Ms. Cha Ochoa Tobias," sabi ko sa secretary ko na si Ayu.

"Yes, sir."

Pumunta ako kay Cyriel, "ano bang pag uusapan natin?"

Ngumiti siya. Tss. Weird. "Wala lang. Kumain ka na ba?"

"Hindi pa," sabi ko. Ano ba to? Nagpunta lang para ayain akong kumain?? Nabakla
na ba ang kapatid ko??

"Tara, kain muna tayo."

Naglakad kami papunta sa resto. Ewan ko ba sa kapatid ko na 'to. Nasa iisang bah
ay lang naman kami pero hindi kami nagkikita. =___= Two weeks din yun ah. Buti h
indi siya tinatanong ni mom kung hindi papagalitan na naman ako.

Nung dumating na yung order namin, "ano nga, Cyriel? Hindi ka naman pupunta dito
para lang ayain akong kumain."

Binaba niya yung chopsticks, "kasi.."

"Kasi?"

"Nagbreak na kami ni Dana o nagcool off? Ewan."

Tss. Expected.

"About time," sabi ko. Matagal ko nang naisip na sa ganto din sila dadating ni D
ana. Ewan ko. Kahit kapatid ko si Cyriel, hindi niya deserve si Dana. Masyadong
mabait eh. Mas bagay siya kay payatot. Opposites attract. Isang mabait, isang ma
sama.

Nangiti na lang siya, "so, expected mo na talaga?"

Tumango ako. Hmm. Tagal ko na ding hindi nakakain ng tempura, "oo. Dati pa kita

tinatanong tungkol kay Ynna, di ba? About time na din na maamin mo sa sarili mo.
"

"Bakit hindi mo sinabi sa akin dati pa?"

Tinignan ko siya, "na alin? Na mahal mo si Ynna higit pa sa kaibigan? Ulol. Ano
ko, si papa Jack? Problema mo yan, idadamay mo pa ko."

Umiling iling siya, "hindi naman eh. Nakipaghiwalay ako kay Dana pero hindi ibig
sabihin nun na mahal ko si Ynna. Basta, ang gulo lang kasi. Lahat kami nagugulu
han."

"Alam mo, Cyriel. Gumugulo lang naman lahat dahil sa'yo. Makinig ka, ha? Naghiwa
lay si Dana at Andy para sa'yo. Umalis si Andy papunta kung saan man para sa'yo.
Nagtiis si Dana para sa'yo. Ikaw naman ang gagawin mo lang ay ipakita kay Dana
na deserve mo lahat ng ginawa niya. Yun lang naman eh. Ano bang mahirap dun, di
ba? Eh ang problema, hindi mo magawa yung nag iisang bagay na dapat mong gawin d
ahil kay payatot. In short, si Payatot ang priority mo."

Sumingit siya, "kasi nga may sakit siya."

"Sino ba niloloko mo? Ako o ikaw? Kasi hindi ako tanga kagaya mo," sabi ko.

"Bakit ba kasi siguradong sigurado ka na mahal ko nga si Ynna?"

Tinignan ko siya ng diretso, "isa lang, Cyriel. Kasi nakikita ko kung paano mo s
iya tratuhin. Hindi mo nakikita yun."

Nof's Point of View

"Kim naman!! Kanina pa tayo paikot ikot eh. Uwi na tayo, please," i said.

We've been walking for minutes. Nakakapagod kaya!

She pouted, "kasi naman ang laki laki ng mall nila!! Nakakainis!!"

In the end, pumayag din siya na umuwi na kami.

Pumunta kami sa bahay then i called DK via skype since hinihintay ko ding mag on
line si Andy.

"Hey, DK."

("Hey. Ano'ng meron?")

"Nothing. Bakit ka nga pala online?" i asked her. Bihira lang kasing mag skype s
i DK eh.

("Just talking to Angel, yung nag aayos nung venue para sa launching ng FHF sa M
iami.")

"Ah. By the way, may titirahan na ba tayo dun?" i asked her. Say no, DK!! I have
brilliant plans. Really brilliant.

She paused, ("about that.. wala pang na aarange si mom eh. For the mean time, sa
hotel muna tayo mag check in.")

I shook my head really hard, "No, DK! I know a place. Dun na lang tayo magstay,
okay? Basta dun tayo. Okay, okay? Bye, DK!!"

End call.

Yosh.

Online na si Andy boy.

"ANDY!!!"

("What? Istorbo ka. Nagtext ka pang mag online ako. Ano bang meron?") sabi niya
tapos naghikab pa. Bakit ba naka boxer shorts lang 'tong isang 'to?? Hindi ba ma
lamig dun?? Sabagay. Hehehe. Mas maganada kung ganyan ang attire niya pag nandun
kami ni DK.

"Ilan ang kwarto diyan sa bahay mo?" i asked. Based from what i am seeing from t
he webcam, malaki yung bahay ni Guzman. Sabagay.

("'Tong piggy na 'to. Ginising mo ako para jan??")

"Basta wag kang magulo."

("Lima tapos dalawang guest room. Bakit ba??")

"Hehehe. Bye, Andy."

Great plan, Nof.

Nof's Point of View

"Nof, it's cold!" DK complained.

Sheez! Akala niya ba siya lang ang nilalamig? Hindi ko na nga maramdaman yung da
liri ko eh!

"I know, i know!" i hissed habang hinahanap ko sa hand carry ko yung leather glo
ves ko. Jusko, Guzman. Bakit sa dinami dami ng araw na maglalaboy ka, ngayon mo
pa napili kung kailan dadating kami ni DK sa Miami??

"Oh," i said then hinagis ko yung scarf ko at coat kay DK. Kawawa naman kasi, mu
khang mamamatay na siya sa lamig. =___= Masyado namang malalamigin 'tong babaeng
'to. Ang balak ko, grand entrance ang pagkikita nila ni Andy. Baka naman masobr
ahan sa grand pag malamig na na bangkay 'tong kasama ko.

"T-thanks," sabi niya tapos sinuot ng mabilis yung coat at scarf.

Hooo! Buti na lang at sanay na ako sa lamig kahit papano. Sa Paris kasi ako for
2 years nung nawala ang mom. Kaya nga nahilig ako sa fashion design eh, center k
asi dun.

I sat on the steps on the porch. Kanina ko pa dina dial yung number niya pero un
attended. Leche! Nasan ba kasi yung lalaking yun???

**
Andy's Point of View

"Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!"

=___=

Niyugyog pa ako. Aish. Puyat ako. Puyat akoooo!!

"Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!!!"

-o-

"Why, baby?" sabi ko. Napakakulit ni Andrei. Tsk. Manang mana sa nanay niyang au
tistic eh.

"Let's go out! The snow's falling!"

Umupo ako sa kama tapos tumingin sa labas ng bintana. Oo nga noh? Nagssnow na pa
la. Akalain mo?

"It's too cold outside, baby," sabi ko.

"But i want!!! Daddy!! Please???"

=____=

Haaaay. Ano ba naman ang magagawa ko pag nagpacute na ang batang ito??

Binuhat ko siya tapos inupo sa gilid ko tapos pinat ko yung ulo niya, "alright.
Daddy will just take a bath, alright?"

"But it's too cold, daddy! You will freeze inside the bathroom!!"

^_____^

Ang sarap talaga sa feeling pag may nag aalala sa'yo. Haaaaaaaaay. Gusto ko na d
in talagang gumawa ng bata.

Hinalikan ko siya sa noo, "it's fine, baby. I'll use heater, okay? Just play wit
h berdy while waiting for me."

Pumasok na ako sa cr para maligo. Wala kasi si Glorie ngayon. Ewan ko sa babaeng
yun. May pinuntahan sa kabilang State kaya iniwan sa akin si Andrei. Ako pa ang
ginawang katulong. =___= Nabaligtad pa ang sitwasyon.

Nakatapos na ako. Leche!! Ang lamig pa din ng tubig! Parang nagyeyelo!! Tsk. Nai
intidihan ko na kung bakit hindi mahilig maligo mga tao dito. Nakakabaliw naman
kasi yung kalamigan eh!

Nagsuot na ako ng madaming damit. Tsk. Nag drop na daw yung temperature eh, deli
kado na.

"Wow. You're so stuffed, daddy!!"

=____=

Ginawa pa akong stuffed toy nitong batang 'to? Tsk. Kundi ko lang 'to mahal eh.

"Did your momma give you extra clothes?" tanong ko sa kanya. Naka pants, sweater
, hand gloves, beanie, at ear muffin kasi siya. Hehehe. Pati nakaboots kami pare
ho. Like father, like son.

Umiling siya, "no, this is everything momma gave me. She said i'll be fine since
you'll take care of me *O*"

=___=

Kukutusan ko yang si Glorie pag nakita ko eh. Pabayaan daw ba si Andrei sa akin?
? Porke gwapo mapagkakatiwalaan na agad?? Eh pano kung member pala ako ng wakwak
gang?? Eh di naibenta pa ng di oras yung internal organs ni Andrei. Tsk.

"Fine, let's go," sabi ko tapos hinawakan ko yung kamay niya.

"Can we take Berdy with us, daddy?"

"No. It's non negotiable, Andrei. Do you want Berdy to freeze to death?"

"Uwaaaa!! I love my berdy! I don't want her to freeze to death!! I don't want my
berdy to freeze to death."

O________O

My berdy to freeze to death???

Anak ko yata talaga si Andrei eh?? Hindi kaya naanakan ko si pouty dati?? Nakapu
nta ba ako sa Miami last, last, last year?? Hmmm. Tignan ko nga sa passport ko m
amaya.

Pinat ko yung ulo niya, "silly. We'll go with berdy when the weather's nice, oka
y?"

Umalis na kami tapos naglakad papunta sa park. May ice skating rink daw kasi dun
sabi ni pouty tuwing winter season. Eh nung isang araw pa ako kinukulit ni Andr
ei. Ganito pala ang feeling ng may anak. Tsk.

Nag ice skate lang si Andrei. Ang tapang eh. Nakikipagsabayan pa sa mga bata dun
eh mas matanda naman sa kanya yung mga yun.

After ng ilang minuto, napagod din. Jusko. Ang taas ng energy eh. Isang oras siy
ang nagsskate dun ah!

"Daddy, i'm tired. Buy me hotdogs."

=____=

"Okay. Wait for me."

Hahaha! Natatawa ako minsan kasi nakakalimutan ko na


si Andrei. Minsan kasi pakiramdam ko ako talaga yung
ayon pag inuutusan niya ako. Parang ako kasi talaga.

days. Hehehe. Namiss ako ni mom eh. Ang gwapo ko kaya. =_

Pinakilala ko nga si Andrei na anak ni pouty eh tapos nung sinabi ko na hindi ko


naman anak si Andrei, umiyak si Andrei. Kesyo ayaw ko daw sa kanya. Jusko. Bata
bata pa, nagddrama na. =___= Kaya ayun, pinakilala ko bilang anak ko. Ang sensi
tive masyado. Pero naiintindihan ko din naman kasi ngayon lang siya nagka father
figure. Ang sinasabi kasi ni pouty palagi sa kanya na patay na yung tatay niya
kaya siguro masaya din siya na ako yung tinuturing niyang tatay ngayon.

Konti lang binili ko kasi wala naman akong dalang sasakyan. Para lang sa kakaini
n namin ngayong gabi. Sa'kin kasi matutulog si Andrei eh. Alam niyo na, nagffeel
ing dalaga yung nanay niya. =___=

"Guzman!!!"

O___________________O

"Daddy, our food!!"

Nabitawan ko yung hawak ko.

Hindi ba ako nananaginip??

Si Dana???

**
Dana's Point of View

"Daddy! Our food!!"

D-daddy?

Napatingin ako kay Andy, mukha siyang nagulat.. Pero hindi ba dapat ako ang magu
lat? Daddy? Akala ko ba buntis pa lang yung girfriend niya? Bakit mukhang malaki
na yung anak niya? Baka naman pangalawang anak na nila yung ipinagbubuntis?

"Omg!" narinig kong sabi ni Nof.

Hindi ako makapagreact. Nakatingin lang ako sa bata sa harap ko. Siguro dalawang
taon na. Blue ang kulay ng mata niya at blondie ang buhok. Ibig sabihin ba nito
.. na blondie ang bagong girlfriend ni Andy?

"You stupid, inconsiderate jerk! Ang tagal tagal mong dumating! Muntik na kaming
maging snow man ni DK ah!"

Hindi pa din makapagsalita si Andy.. siguro dahil nalaman na namin na matagal na


pala siyang may tinatago..

"Excuse me?" nagsalita yung bata na kasama niya samantalang nakatulala pa din sa
Andy sa amin..

"Are you my daddy's friends?"

Daddy.. talaga?

**
Nof's Point of View

^____________^

"No, i am your daddy's prettiest friend. And she is.." tapos tinuro ko si Dana,
"your dad's ex- girlfriend."

Ang cute cute na bata! Nako si Guzman talaga! Tsk. Ang batang ama lang pala ang
gusto niyang title. Tsk. Kaya pala nagmamadaling umalis ng Pilipinas dati, may b
abalikan pala sa Miami. Tsk. Matinik talaga ang lalaking 'to eh.

"Really??" parang hindi makapaniwalang tanong nung batang blue eyes.

"What's your name, by the way?" nagtanong na ako dahil hindi naman yata siya mai
papakilala ni Guzman dahil ayun at nakatitig pa din kay DK. Akala yata nananagin
ip lang siya.

"I'm Andrei," sabi nung bata tapos nagsmile at bow. Sheet! Ang cute cute niya! *
O*

"A-andrei?" sabi ni DK na nag stummer. Hehehe. Selos yan, pustahan.

"Yes, my dad's ex girlfriend," sabi niya.

Wahaha! Sige lang, ipagdiinan mo pa yung my dad's ex girlfriend! Panalong panalo


'to! Matawagan nga si Kim mamaya. For sure maiinggit yun sa mga nangyayari dito
. Hahaha!

Lumapit ako kay Andrei, "where's the comfort room?" i asked. Kanina pa din kasi
ako nilalamig dito. Jusko!

"Third door after the hallway," sabi niya.

Hinatak ko na din siya. Kailangan yatang magmoment nung dalawa.

**
Andy's Point of View

"D-dana.." nakapagsalita na din ako sa wakas. Totoo pala ang nakikita ko. Si Dan
a nga yung nasa harap ko.

Ngumiti lang siya, "long time no see," sabi niya.

Ngumiti lang din ako. Grabe! Namiss ko 'to. Namiss ko siya. Gustung gusto ko siy
ang yakapin ngayon pero wala naman akong karapatan kasi hiwalay na kami.

"Oo nga eh. Busy din eh.. Kamusta? Kayo ni Cyriel?"

Medyo natigilan siya sa tanong ko, "ayun, masaya. Ikaw ha, may anak ka na pala.
Hindi ka man lang nagsabi!"

Masaya naman pala sila ni Cyriel. Mabuti naman. Hindi nila alam kung ilang gabi
akong parang bading na umiyak dati. Sayang naman yung emo moments ko kung hindi
sila magiging msaya.

"Ah, oo nga eh.. Ngayon ko lang din nalaman eh," sabi ko na lang. Mas mabuti na
din na isipin nila yun para hindi naman ako mukhang kawawang heart broken sa pan
ingin niya.. Okay na din na isipin niyang naka move on na ako para hindi na din
siya maguilty.

"Tara, pasok tayo?" pag aaya ko.

Pumasok kami sa loob at tinulungan ko siya sa gamit niya. Teka, bakit nga ba sil
a nandito?? Kaya ba tinanong ni piggy yung kwarto sa bahay ko??? Yung baboy tala
ga na yun oh!!

Umupo siya sa recliner. Ako naman, kumuha ng towel since natunaw na yung snow sa
coat ni Dana kaya basa siya. Baka magkasakit, magalit pa si Cyriel sa'kin. Tsk.

"Hot chocolate o coffee o tea?" tanong ko sa kanya. Nanginginig kasi siya. Tsk.
Kung girlfriend ko pa din 'to, malamang hindi towel binigay ko. Yayakapin ko yan
hanggang hindi na siya lamigin.

Ngumiti siya, "chocolate would be nice."

Pumunta ako sa kusina at naghanap ng instant hot chocolate at marshmallows. Buti


na lang talaga at nandito si pouty. Kung hindi nakakahiya kay Dana dahil puro b
eer at frozen pizza ang aabutan niya. =___=

Nasan na nga ba si Nof at Andrei??

**
Dana's Point of View

"D-dana.."

I looked at him. I don't know how to react. It's been more than a month that we
haven't seen each other.. That last time was when i broke his heart. I would und
erstand if the chain is still on his door.

I tired to smile, "long time no see."

He smiled in return. I missed this. I know i sound so selfish pero kasi.. Andy w
as a part of my life, is a part of my life, and will be a part of my life. Maybe
even as a friend..

"Oo nga eh. Busy din eh.. Kamusta? Kayo ni Cyriel?" he asked.

I was taken aback by his question. What would i say? That we're on the rocks and
that what i am feeling is exactly the opposite of what i thought i would feel?
That i am feeling so hurt instead of feeling happy..

"Ayun, masaya. Ikaw ha, may anak ka na pala. Hindi ka man lang nagsabi!" i lied.
I broke his heart, hoping that Cyriel would mke me happy. But what happened?

"Ah, oo nga eh.. Ngayon ko lang din nalaman eh," he said. So.. he's really his s
on. Kung hindi ko siya hiniwalayan, hindi niya malalaman na may anak siya?

"Tara, pasok tayo?" he said.

We walked inside his house. Bakit nga ba kami nandito? And why is he here? I tho
ught he's in California? Di ba nga kaya ako pumayag sa offer ni mom kasi malayo
sa kanya? Pero bakit ganun? Kahit anong iwas ko, napapalapit pa din ako?

I sat on his recliner and he gave me a towel. I rememer those times when i'm col
d, he would hug me until i feel warm. But that'a all in the past. Pinakawalan ko
siya. I must live with it. He's got responsibility.

"Hot chocolate o coffee o tea?" he offered.

I smiled, "chocolate would be nice."

But being your friend once again would probably be nicer.

**
Nof's Point of View

"Can i ask your name?" sabi nung miniature ni Andy na American version.

Nandito ako sa isang kwarto sa bahay ni Guzman. Nagpalit ako ng damit. Feeling b
ahay ko na din 'to, bakit ba?

"Sure, call me auntie Noff" sabi ko kay mini me habang nagsusuklay. Leche. Puro
snow buhok ko ah!

"Auntie Nof, is she the one who broke daddy's heart??"

O_______O

Aba't! Ang daming alam ng batang 'to ah! Kinu kwentuhan kaya ni Guzman 'to??

Tumango tango ako, "yes. The one and only Dana Kathryn Ferrer."

Nagpout siya. Omo! Ang cute!!

"I don't like her then. She broke daddy's heart."

^______^

Mukhang magkakasundo kami ng batang ito!

-Philippines-

Cyriel's Point of View

"Hello, brother."

"Tss," sabi ko. Si Clarence lang pala.

"San ka galing?" sabi niya tapos inabutan ako ng baso ng whisky. Kakagaling lang
siguro sa trabaho kasi naka longsleeves at tie pa.

"Kila Ynna," sabi ko tapos kinuha ko yung baso at naupo.

"Naks. Nagiging open ka na talaga sa relasyon niyo ni Ynna ah."

"Siraulo."

Umikot siya at tumayo sa likod ng counter ng mini bar namin.

"Uuwi ulit sila mom next week. Ano sasabihin mo pag hinanap nila si Ynna?" sabi
niya.

Matagal ko na ding pinag isipan 'to. Wala talaga akong balak na sabihin sa kanil
a yung totoong kalagayan ni Ynna. Wala na eh. Wala na si Dana.. Nawawala na siya
. Si Ynna na lang yung hindi umalis sa tabi ko.

"Eh di yung totoo.. cancer."

Natawa si Clarence, "gago ka talaga. Sabagay, totoo naman. Kulang lang."

"Wag kang manggugulo. Akin 'to. Diskarte ko," sabi ko.

Ngumiti siya, "alam ko. Tss. Feeling mo naman tutulungan kita? Mas kampi ako kay
Dana, noh. Pakielam ko naman sa'yo kahit kapatid kita?"

Ngumiti din ako, "eh di nagkakaintindihan tayo."

May kinuha siya mula sa drawer ng counter, "oh. Pinapabigay ni Dana. Wala ka kas
i kahapon eh, hindi mo siya naabutan. Si Ynna ang pinili mo. Maging masayang byu
do ka sana."

Umalis na siya at iniwan niya ako. Sulat ni Dana..

Cyriel,

I don't know but i remember reminding you about my flight later. But.. you're no
where to be found.. Siguro kasama mo siya ngayon.. I was hoping na makapag usap
tayo bago man lang ako umalis. Yes, i'm going to Miami in few hours time. I was
hoping to clear things up before going. Ayoko namang umalis na ang labo labo nat
ing dalawa. I said i'll be waiting for your answer, right? And i'll be. I will g
ive you enough time.. and enough space. Enough na ba ang Miami para ma miss mo a
ko? Hahaha. Sorry, i feel really awful for myself. Kasi umaasa pa din ako kahit
alam kong hindi naman na yata pwede. Ang hirap naman kasi ng kalaban ko.. Kamata
yan naman kasi. Sino ba naman ako para piliin mo, di ba? Ako naman walang sakit.
Siguro mabubuhay pa ako ng matagal unlike her. Ewan.

Pero Cyriel, would you choose me if i'm dying just like her?

Because i feel dying.. my heart feels really painful..

After mong sabihin sa akin na natatakot kang pigilan kitang makasama siya, i was
really scared. Ano bang meron talaga kayo? Mas gusto mo na ba siya kaysa sakin?
You promised me you don't love her.. But i think your promises are meant to hur
t me.

I will be back, Cyriel. Sana pagbalik ko, maging maayos na tayong dalawa. Kung w

ala na talaga, what could i do but to accept it? At least magkaka closure na tay
ong dalawa.. But we can't be friends.. for the time being. It would probably sti
ng. Really sting. But time would come na tatawanan na lang nating kung ano yung
nangyari.. But i was really hoping for the former. We really came far enough. Sa
yang, Cyriel. Sayang na sayang.

I love you. Take care of Ynna.. i know you want to do that. I will forever love
you.. as my man or as a friend. Take care.

'Til we meet again.

-Dana

67th Chapter

Dana's Point of View

"Come on, Nof. Let's get to work!" I nodged Nof. She's been lying for hours and
we need to get started. The clock's ticking.

She mumbled, "DK naman.." then she rolled over to the other side of the bed, "we
traveled for 18 hours via plane. 1 hour via car. Wala ka man lang bang tinatawa

g na jetlag?"

I rolled my eyes inside my head. Jeez. Bakit ko nga ba sinama pa si Nof? I knew
she wouldn't be of any help. At all. A nuisance, maybe. Tignan mo nga, the momen
t i arrived here, si Andy agad ang nakita ko. Just when i thought na makakaalis
na ako sa Pilipinas, ang lugar ng mga problema ko. And here, it's basically the
same.

"Fine, fine," i said then went out of the door.

I grabbed my things and checked my phone. Margo, mom's assistant, just sent me t
he location. I'll just follow the GPS. Nakakhiya naman kasi kung magpapasama pa
ako kay Andy. Malay ko ba kung ihahatid niya si Andrei sa nursery or something.

"Good morning, Dana," Andy greeted me.

I smiled at him and greeted him as well.

"Breakfast?" he offered.

"Nope, but thanks for the offer. I'll just grab a to- go," i declined. I don't k
now. I feel awkward. I know i don't have the slightest right to feel awkward. I
was the who who broke up with him. But still, with little Andrei running around
the house, who wouldn't? And plus, i am still wondering who the kid's mom is.

He bounced from his seat and stood beside me, with a good twelve inches distant,
"san ka ba? Hatid na kita?" he offered again.

I shook my head and showed him my phone, "GPS."

He nodded, "how about borrow my car?"

I smiled at his persistence, "nope. I can manage, Andy. Mom rented a car before
hand. I'll just beep you up if i'm lost."

He shrugged, "baliw. Sige, alis na din ako."

I know i have no right to pry as well but i can't help but to ask, "san ka pupun
ta?"

He got his keys and grabbed two sweaters, "i'll go get Andrei then work. Alam mo
na, head of the family," then he playfully winked at me.

I sighed inside my head. Of course, Dana. He's got a family.

**
Andy's Point of View

Tss. Talaga, Andy? Head of the family? Baliw!!

San ba kasi pupunta si Dana at ayaw pang magpasama? Mamaya mawala pa sa Miami yu
n eh! Ang dami pa namang masasamang tao dito. Tsk. Lagot ako kay Tita pag nagkat
aon. Teka, alam ba niyang sa akin nakatira si Nof at Dana? Hmmm. Tawagan ko nga
mamaya.

Pumunta ako sa school ni Andrei. Ang bata bata pa nag aaral na. Three years old
pa lang eh. Kaya madaming alam eh. Tsk.

"Daddy!!" sumigaw si Andrei liit papunta sa akin. Eskandalosong bata. Tsk.

"Hey, baby," sabi ko habang nakayakap siya sa akin. Sinoot ko na din yung sweate
r niya para doble. Ang lamig ngayon eh!

"Thank you, daddy. Are we going to mommy??" sabi niya. Si Glorie kasi hindi pa n
akakauwi. Gala talagang babae. Feel na feel ang pagka dalaga, nakalimutan na yat
ang iniwan niya yung anak sa akin.

I messed with his blonde hair, "yes. She's with Auntie Angel, Auntie Shai, Aunti
e Jem, Auntie Aemie and Lawrence," i said. Nagdiretso na pala sa trabaho eh.Tama
ng tama at makatulong nga dun. Baka namiss na din nila ang ka gwapuhan ko. Heheh
e.

"Ok," sabi niya tapos sinuot yung seatbelt niya. Matalinong bata talaga. Hahaha!
Manang mana sa daddy niyang gwapo.

Mga after 20 minutes, nakarating na din kami. Traffic din kasi dahil sa snow sa
daan. Problema talaga ang snow. Tsk. Bakit ba gustung gusto sa Pilipinas yun, eh
puro perwisyo lang dala nung dito. Basag na windshield, makalat na front porch,
madulas na daan, at makapal na damit palagi. Tsk.

Pumasok na kami sa loob. Himala, busy ang mga tao.

"Momma!!" sabi ni Andrei habang nagtatatakbo doon papunta sa nanay niyang feelin
g teenager.

Niyakap din siya ni pouty, "hey, baby. Momma missed you so much. Did you miss me
?"

Kiniss siya ni Andrei liit sa cheeks, "no, momma. Daddy was with me the whole ti
me so i didn't miss you."

Pouty faked a hurt, "so, you love Mr. Grumpy more?"

Nag nod si Andrei liit. Hehehe. Syempre naman, eh halos matabunan na siya sa bin
ili kong robot kahapon. Pag naman ako eh hindi pa niya minahal. Wahaha!

"Don't be sad, momma. I still love you. Andrei loves you," sabi niya.

Andrei loves you? Parang maling pakinggan? Andrei loves Dana dapat. Hehehe.

Kiniss siya ni pouty tapos lumabas sila. Ano bang gagawin nung dalawang yun? Tss
. Mapuntahan na nga lang yung mga sexy dito.

"Hey, Angel," bati ko dun sa boss.

"Hi, Louie," sabi niya pero hindi niya tinignan yung gwapo kong mukha.

"What's up?" sabi ko. Para kasing sobrang busy nilang lahat. Anong nangyayare??

"The owner's daughter is coming any minute so we're working our butts," sabi niy
a. Ooh, kaya naman pala. Ganyan din kami eh, gagawin lang namin yung exer nila D
ave pag nakatingin yung prof. Hehehe. Yung isang prof nga namin nung college, ma
y crush kay Cyriel (ewan ko ba kung bakit si Cyriel eh di hamak na mas pogi nama
n ako dun) tapos halos ibagsak na kami kasi sinabihan ni Cyriel ng 'wag mo nga a
kong hawakan' o basta ganun ata. Hahaha! Buti na lang gumana yung pagpapa cute n
i Dave at nakapasa naman kami.

"Need any help?" sabi ko. Kawawa naman sila eh, mukhang haggard. Eh ang fresh ko
pa namang tignan. Tsk.

Pumunta ako dun sa stage at tumulong. Finishing touches na lang pala yung kulang
. Wala naman din kasi akong ginagawa kasi natapos ko na yung proposed design sa
resort na gustong ipagawa ni dad. Bagong business na naman. Ayos!

"Daddy, coffee from momma," sabi ni Andrei sabay abot sa akin nung tray mula sta
rbucks.

"Thanks, baby," sabay inom ng kape.

O___________O

Naibuga ko pa yung inumin ko.

At bakit magkasama si Dana at Pouty????

**
Dana's Point of View

Good gracious. I'm lost. Ugh! Bakit ba kasi hindi pa ako nagpahatid kay Andy? Pr
ide will really get you nowhere.

"Miss, need help?"

May lumapit sa akin na babae. Brunette.

"Yes," sabi ko na, "do you know this place?" sabi ko sabay pakita nung address.

She nodded, "it's just across the street. I'm going there as well."

"Really?" i said out of desperation. Baka kasi kahit across the street lang eh m
awala pa ako. I really suck with directions.. even with GPS. Goodness!

I offered a ride. She doesn't seem to be a bad person naman eh.

"Here it is. Who are you, by the way?" she asked habang naglalakad kami papasok
nung paggaganapan nung launching ng FHF.

"Dana Ferrer," i said then offered my hand.

"No way," she said.

Ha?

"Pardon?" i asked.

"You're Dana Ferrer? As in the daughter of the great Adalia Ferrer?" she said, s
hocked written all over her face.

I nodded.

She held my hands and said, "i am a fan of your mom. I am Chelsea Juliart, by th
e way."

I smiled at her. Weird. It feels weird. I feel like i've been mobbed.

We reached our destination then pinakilala niya ako kila Angel, Aemie, Shaira, a
nd other people whose names i can't remember. I don't commit people's name into
memory if i won't be interacting with them for long.

"Oh, and here's Glorie," sabi niya dun sa babaeng kakarating lang.

"Hi, Glorie," i offered my hand with a smile.

She smiled back at me, "hello. And you are?"

"Dana. Dana Kathryn Ferrer," i said.

She raised a brow, "your name sounds familiar."

Tumingin siya sa likod niya tapos may tinawag, "Louie!"

O________O

What is he doing here??

**
Andy's Point of View

Tsk! Si Pouty talaga oh! Aalis na sana ako eh. Pahamak na babae talaga.

"Louie?" sabi ni Dana.

Ngiti na lang, Andy. Tsk. Pahamak na pouty.

"Ah, second name ko?" tanga tangahan pa. Leche! Lagi na lang akong nagkakaganito
sa harap ni Dana. Ano ko, teenager?? 22 na ako eh! Langya!

"Right," sabi niya. Hala, napikon ba siya?? Kainis naman!!

"Wait, do you know each other?" singit ni pouty.

Ano bang sasabihin ko? Yes, siya yung babaeng kinu kwento ko dati na nang iwan s
a akin? Ang pangit namang pakinggan!

"Yes," si Dana na lang yung sumagot, "we're friends."

Amputspa na we're.

We're as in we are

We were??

"Oh," sabi ni Glorie, "anyways, this is Louie once again and this is my son, And
rei. Say hi to Dana, baby."

"I don't want, momma. She's a bad girl! She broke daddy's heart!!"

O______________O

Sino'ng nagturo kay Andrei nun??

**
Nof's Point of View

Guzman
calling..

"Hello?"

("Hoy, piggy! Ano'ng mga sinasabi mo kay Andrei??")

"Tss. Wag ka na, kakain ako."

("Nako! Wag ka ng lalapit kay Andrei, napaka B.I. mong piggy ka!")

"Bwisit! Ubusin ko pagkain sa ref mo eh!"

Lecheng Guzman yun! Gigisingin ako para sigawan??

**
Dana's Point of View

I better just work. Andrei doesn't really like me. He's still a kid. What does h
e know about what happened between me and Andy? Or is it the other way around? S
obrang mahal niya si Glorie at Andrei na lahat ng bagay sa nakaraan niya ay sina
bi niya?

I should stop thinking about this. Launching always comes first.

I started arranging the stage. The models will arrive tomorrow morning. I will s
tay here for good 2 weeks then back to Manila for Christmas.. and to talk to Cyr
iel. Did he get my letter? If yes, why isn't he calling? Maybe he's busy.. takin
g care of Ynna. I asked him to, afterall.

"Ms. Ferrer, are you okay?"

"I'm oka---"

**
Cyriel's Point of View

"Sir, package for you daw po," sabi nung maid.

Inabot ko yung envelope. Ano ba 'to?

"Kanino daw galing?"

Umiling yung maid, "wala pong nakalagay eh. Iniwan lang po sa harap ng gate. Par
a sa inyo daw po."

**
Dana's Point of View

"Where am i?"

I slowly opened my eyes only to see an IV connected in my arm and i, lying on a


hospital bed. What the hell happened??

I glanced at Andy who's pacing back and forth the hospital room.

"Andy?" i called his name.

He looked at me with a frightened expression.

"You need to go back to the Philippines, Dana," sabi niya.

What is happening? Am i sick? Like Ynna? Did i get what i asked? Magkasakit so i
'll be like her? So i will have the right to be pathetic and beg him to stay wit
h me?

"Why?" i asked with my head still pounding.

He took a long, deep breath and gathered all his courage.

"You're pregnant."

68th Chapter

"W-wait, Andy," i said, stopping him from gathering my things.

We went back to his house from the hospital. And.. it was confirmed. I am pregna
nt. Six weeks pregnant.

"You're going back to Manila, Dana," he said.

I stopped from my track, "what?"

He continued packing my things, "narinig mo ko, babalik ka sa Pilipinas," he sai


d in a dismissing tone.

I sat on the edge of my bed. Everything was a blur. Was still a blur.

He stopped packing my things and sat in front of me, "hey, Dana," he said, enclo
sing both of my hands inside his.

I looked at him, "Andy," i said his name, "i don't think i can do this," i said,
finally admitting that i am scared. I am scared about what the future holds for
me.

He pressed both of my hands and gave me an encouraging smile, "you can do this,
Dana. You're far better than this."

A tear escaped form my eyes, "i don't think i can. It's.. difficult," i said. St
ill, i cannot find the courage to admit that Cyriel and i aren't really.. togeth
er.

He let go of my hands and caressed my cheeks, "look at me. I know you better tha
n anyone, Dana. Kaya mo yan. You'll be a great.. mom," he said. All i see in And
y's eyes are pain.. and defeat.

When he said those words to me, it feels like he's giving up on me. I suddenly f
elt it all over again, what i felt when i learned that he left for the States. I
feel it again. Those.. emotions in his eyes.

"Pero, Andy.."

He smiled at me, "you'll go home and tell Cyriel about this. Best friend ko yun,
Dana. He'll take responsibility. Don't doubt him."

I smiled at him. I don't know, i'll just hold onto Andy's words.. I won't doubt
him.

"Can you go with me?" i said.

He looked at me.. not saying anything.

I tried to cover my disappointment by smiling instead. Of course, he wouldn't co


me. He has a family here. Who am i, anyways? An ex- girlfriend compared to his f
amily. A pregnant one for this matter.

"Sorry for asking," i said.

He smiled, "gusto mong sumama ako?"

I nodded. I want him to come. I know this is already too much to ask. I am not a
sadist, i don't want to torment him by asking him to come with me when i break
this news to Cyriel. But i need Andy. I need him by my side in case Cyriel decid
es to.. be with Ynna instead.

I may be pregnant but i am not pathetic. I will not force him to marry me becaus
e i am carrying his child. I wouldn't do that for anything in this world!

I want us to be married out of love.. and not out of responsibility.

"Then i'll go with you," he said, "maybe this is what i need."

I looked at him with a questioning eyes.

"What i need to finally forget you."

Nof's Point of View

Haaaaay. Ang boring sa bahay, wala kasi si Guzman. Tinext ko si Glorie at tinano
ng kung nasan siya.

Buddy na kami ni Glorie. Cool kaya niya! At tandem pa kami sa panloloko kay Andy
. Hahaha! The best din si Andrei liit. Ang cute cute na bata! Lalo siyang nagigi
ng cute pag tinatawag niyang 'daddy's cruel ex- girlfriend' si DK!

Nandito kami sa shopping district sa Miami. Winter season eh, syempre kailangang
bumili ako ng outfits kung ayaw kong maging yelo.

I also learned from Andy na working mom si Glorie. I'm an enthusiast of single p
arents. Ang galing kaya nila! Their are working their butts out for a living and
at the same time tumatayo din silang both parents sa anak nila. Aren't they ama
zing?

"Are you sure this is all on you?" she asked for the nth time.

I gave a wink, "yup. Just go and shop for yourself and Andrei. Consider it as a
gift," i said as i examined those rack of awesome boots.

We're here at Nine West. Si Andrei liit? Nandun sa tito Lawrence niya or whateve
r. Ninakaw ko lang si Glorie for some girl moments.

She needs to dress to impress Andy! Ang simple kasi ni Glorie eh, too plain for
Andy's liking. Eh si DK.. jusko. Araw araw maganda! Well, who can blame her? She
has the body and the money.

After Nine West, we walked to our next destination, YSL! Money can really buy me
happiness.

As we were walking, tried to fish for some information from Glorie. I knew few d
ays back that she wasn't really Andy's girlfriend. That Andy! Aso pala si Berdy!
A very cute puppy for that one.

"So.. what's the catch?" i said, trying to keep my cool. Baka maging defensive s
iya pag nahalata niyang humahanap ako ng chismis eh!

"About?"

"Duh, you and Andy, of course!" i said.

She showed a playful smile, "why? Why are you all curious about that?"

I rolled my eyes, "because.. just because. Well, just answer my question, little
wench." I said. Well, we call each other like that. No harm done. Glorie is rea
lly a fun girl, swear!

She let out an exasperated sigh, "we're.. friends, alright? What's the big deal
out of that?"

Again, i rolled my eyes, "the big deal? Because you two are acting more than wha
t you are saying," i said in my most sarcastic tone.

During my stay here in Miami, swear to all the saints i know, if DK weren't my f
riend, i would totally vote for Glorie! She's really fun and everything. And she
's a great mom, mind you.

When i see her and Andy playing around, they seem happy and contented. I don't k
now, that is just what i see. But when i see DK's jealous face, i continue my di
abolical plan. I even got Andy to strip off his shirt to seduce DK.. even though
it's freezing cold. Don't ask me how i did it because i did it Nof's way.

"Because he's fun to be with, Nof. We're friends, just friends."

"Did you guys kiss?"

"What? No!"

I laughed, "why are you so defensive? Geez, Glorie. It's just a kiss."

She smiled, "well, sorry. But.. we didn't kiss. Swear."

"But would you like to kiss him?"

She showed a mischievous smile, "i would be lying if i said i don't.. but the an
swer would still be no. I don't do complicated man. Louie's still hang ups on Da
na. They really need to resolve their issues."

"But if he's not complicated?" i said, trying my best not to look too nosy.

She let out a sigh, "fine, i would love to date Louie if that's the case."

I beamed.

As we reached our next stop, Glorie literally stopped.

"You, bitch! Where's my son?!"

**
Dana's Point of View

"Everything packed?" i asked Andy.

Today, we would be flying back to the Philippines. I am nervous, really nervous.

He nodded, "okay ka na?" he asked.

"I'm good."

"Your meds?"

"Already inside the bag," i answered.

He got both of our luggage and placed it inside the cab he hailed. Nof's not aro
und and she left her phone so i just left a note explaining the gist of what hap
pened.

Andy opened the door for me and led me inside the cab. Just when he was getting
inside as well, Nof arrived.. with Glorie who was crying really hard.

**
Nof's Point of View

"Come on, Glorie, stop crying," i consoled her.

That son of a wench! Ang sama sama ng ugali niya! Geez! How dare he say those th
ings to Glorie?! Even just by hearing what he said, i feel so degraded!

Glorie wouldn't stop crying. I mean, who wouldn't? He's just.. too much of a man
. That Hans! May his soul rot in hell together with Cyriel!

We eventually reached Andy's house. Heavenly thanks to international driver's li


cense.

As we were walking, we saw Andy loading some luggage into the trunk of a cab. We
went there to get a better view of what the hell is happening.

"What's happening?" i asked.

Glorie's still crying fervently behind me and Dana looked.. pale? I don't know.

What the hell happened when i was not around?

Andy didn't hear my question or just didn't answer it. Instead, he went to Glori
e and asked her.

I butted in, "she won't talk. I tried."

He sighed, "ano'ng nangyari?"

I sat on the bench kahit na may snow. DK is still inside the cab and Glorie went
to the front porch and sat there.

"Well, what happened? Oh yes, we accidentally bumped into Glorie stupid, stupid,
stupid ex- boyfriend who also happened to be the father of Andrei!"

Ugh! Just by reminiscing about what happened earlier, it makes my blood boil! He
's the ultimate antagonist to my feministic view in life!

"Then he accused Glorie of some horrible things and for the best part.. he's gon
na sue her. And demand for full custody of Andrei," i said as a matter of factly
, "now, what happened here?"

Andy let out a heavy sigh, "Dana's... pregnant."

My breathing literally stopped.

"What the hell?!"

Binaling ni Andy yung tingin niya kay DK na nakaupo sa loob ng cab, waiting prob
ably.

"She's heading home. Kailangang malaman ni Cyriel," he said.

I raised a brow, "kailangan kasama ka?" i said. I don't really get DK. Sadista s
iya, one thing i know for sure. I mean, siguro nga gusto kong magkabalikan si An
dy and Dana for the sake of it.. but the setting is entirely different now. She'
s going to be a mom. I cannot bear to destroy a family. Cyriel is the father. I
know. Something happened during their three days trip.. But i didn't see this on
e coming.

"Just this last time, Nof. Magiging nanay na siya eh. I will probably give up, i
mean yung talagang sumuko na once na makita ko yung bata. I may love her too mu
ch pero hindi ko kayang sirain yung magiging pamilya nila. That's just way out o
f line."

I shrugged. I can't say anything this time.. my diabolical plan wouldn't work.

"So.." i trailed off, "DK needs you.. Glorie needs you.. kanino ka sasama?"

-Philippines-

"Si Cyriel?" I asked Clarence who was then reading a portion of the broadsheet.

He turned around and seemed so surprised to see me, "Dana," he stood up and moti
oned me to sit on the chair adjacent to him, "back too soon," he commented.

I just arrived here in Manila few hours ago.. with Nof.

Andy didn't come with me because of some issues. I would admit that i am disappo
inted and at the same time jealous of the attention Glorie is getting. When I sa
w Andy consoling Glorie, i kind of felt like i should be the one he's attending
to. I know it is f.ucking wrong to feel that way since i know.. i really know th
at i am the one who broke him and Glorie was the one who was there for him when
he needed someone the most. But i wouldn't be a hypocrite by saying that i am re
ally cool with it because the hell i am not!

With all the things going on, i feel like i don't know myself at all. One moment
i love Cyriel, then the next one, i am jealous of Glorie. I cannot understand m
yself at all!

Is it possible to love two people at a time? Before, i thought that that is f.uc
king ridiculous. How could that happen, right? Loving two persons simultaneously

? What a piece of bullsh.it. But with what's happening to my crazed world right
now? I believe that crap. I love two persons.. but not equally. I love the other
person more.. But i don't know who.. And i need to find out before it's too lat
e.

"Yeah, need to arrange some things," i said, "si Cyriel?" i said, repeating the
question.

He eyed me, "what do you want? Honest answer or flattering answer?"

I sighed, "honest answer, Clarence."

He, then, showed a crooked smile, "Payatot, check up, do the math," he said.

I nodded. So, he's in the hospital.

"Thanks, Clarence," i said.

But before walking out of their door, "please talk to Kim. Just hear her out," i
said. My love life is a mess right now, pati ba naman kila Kim? I said those th
ings to Clarence para naman makapag usap sila. They really need to fix whatever
issues they have. Tho, i believe that it's just a misunderstanding. Communicatin
g would really help.

-Sara's Apt-

"Dana!!" she said then ran to me and hugged me tight, "bakit nandito ka na?"

I placed my things on the table and sat on her couch, "may gagawin ako eh," i sa
id.

"Ano naman yun? Importante?" she asked.

I nodded, "yup. A life changing matter," i answered. I looked around her condo u
nit and l didn't see Kim. I thought she was here.

"I texted Kim."

"She's not here. She's with Bryle, you know, the f1 racer guy," she said as thou
gh she wants me to remember that guy.

"Ah, yeah," i said, "with Bryle? Eh di mas lalong nagalit si Clarence?"

She shrugged, "no comment about that one, Dana. You missed a lot of things while
you weren't here!"

She fed me with the things i missed while i was not around. Apparently, Kim went
to Canada just days after i left for Miami. And there's a new b.itch around nam
ed Sage. I would really like to see that Sage for myself and b.itch with her but
i don't have the luxury of time. Time is ticking and i need to make a decision.

After all those things, she asked me, "playtime's over, why are you back too soo
n?"

I tried to smile but i guess that didn't work. Sara knows me too much that she k
nows whenever i am hiding something.

"I'll ask you one thing," i said.

"Spill."

I took a deep breath, "what would be the reason why two people should marry?"

She questioned me with her eyes, but nonetheless answered my question, "for love
, of course. I know, gasgas na. But what else would be the reason why two people
will commit to a lifetime obligation if not for love?"

"But if love is too complicated, ano pang pwedeng dahilan?"

"Friendship," she, then, shrugged, "well, if love is too complicated. I don't kn


ow. Your question is too trivial. Friendship will be the next best thing after l
ove. But why would you marry for the sake of friendship? Ewan, ang gulo. Pero si
guro mas okay na yung friends kayo kasi i believe that love would someday, well,
not fade, but the intensity would lessen. Inevitable naman yan. But siguro kahi
t na nalessen na yung intense feeling niyo para sa isa't isa, as long as friends
hip is there, you two would surpass whatever marriage life would offer."

I smiled.

"Gulo ko, noh? But i don't know. If things are really complicated, why marry? Aa
yos ba yung buhay mo pag nagpakasal ka? Hindi naman ata. Some say that being sin
gle is a curse, but really, it is not. In fact, it is a blessing. You are given
the rare opportunity to enjoy life without any restrictions," she continued.

Sara's now a matured woman. Her insights are.. deep and considerate. Dave is rea
lly good for her.

"Nasagot ko na yung tanong mo," she said, "now answer me, bakit bumalik ka agad?
Problems?"

I shook my head, "i'll tell you pag okay na."

She smiled and held my hands, "you know that i'm always here. It will be over so
on, Dana. Problems won't last forever. You'll soon have your blissful ending.."

"How i wish," i silently uttered.

**
Andy's Point of View

"Glorie, will you stop crying and talk to me?" i said and shook her shoulders.

Kanina pa kami dito sa labas ng office ng attorney para alamin kung ano bang dap
at gawin dun sa kaso ni Andrei liit kaya lang ayaw namang magsalita ni pouty!

Hindi pa din siya nagsalita. Ano ba kasing sinabi nung lalaking yun at ganito na
lang kung makaiyak 'to??

"Sorry, Louie. You should've been with Dana instead of watching me cry," sabi ni
ya. Hindi na lang ako nagsalita. Ano ba naman kasi yung sasabihin ko? Na hindi k
o siya maiwan kasi naawa ako nung nakita ko siyang umiyak? Naging malapit na din
sa akin si pouty. Lagpas isang buwan akong nagstay dito tapos sa buong pagsstay
ko dito, siya na yung kasama ko. Siguro kung hindi niya ako kinulit dati, nagmu
mukmok pa din ako sa bahay ko.

Kahit na sabihin na si Dana yung mahal ko, hindi ko kayang iwan basta si Pouty.
Siya yung nandun nung iniwan ako ni Dana. Ngayong kailangan niya ako, sino ba na
man ako para iwan siya?

"Stop with the Dana thing, pouty. I'll take care of that matter after this."

Nginitian niya ako, "thanks a lot, Louie. I don't know what to do without you.."

Pinat ko yung ulo niya, "of course. You're dumb and you can't do anything right
without my guidance and providence."

Buti naman tumawa na 'to! "Of course. Conceited jerk as ever."

Pagkatapos nun, pumasok na kami sa lawyer's office. Tsk. Buti na lang mabait ako
ngayon. Ewan ko ba, ako pa nagbayad sa professional fee nung lawyer. =___= Baya
an na nga, pasko naman.

Paglabas namin nung office, "so, can you contact whoever that jerk is?"

Nagnod siya. Tignan mo nga naman. May number si pouty! Stalker na stalker ang da
ting eh! Hahaha!

Hinanap niya sa pocket nung bag niya yung contact list niya.

"Here, Hans Peterson."

Ay anak ng!

**
Dana's Point of View

"Sino pong hinahanap niyo?" a certain someone asked me while i was trying to dec
ide whether i would ring the bell or not.

I decided to push through, "is Ynna around?"

Nginitian ako nung kasambahay, "ay, si senorita Ynna po? Pasok po kayo.."

She led me inside the mansion of the Henares Family.

"Pupuntahan ko po muna si senorita. Ano nga pong pangalan niyo?"

"Dana. Dana Kathryn Ferrer," i said.

She went upstairs then someone gave me refreshment while waiting.

"Punta na daw po kayo," sabi nung maid, "sa second floor po.."

I nodded, "i know."

I went upstairs, taking the familiar steps towards her room. As i stepped in fro
nt of her room, i summoned all the courage i have left and knocked.

Nobody acknowledged my presence so i took the liberty to get inside her room sin
ce i know that she's there.

"Hi," i silently uttered.

I gazed towards her direction and i can't help but feel pity towards her. She..
doesn't look very good. She doesn't look like the same person who made my life h
ell years ago.. But nevertheless, whatever she may look, she will never lose the
capacity to ruin my life, that thing i know for sure.

She looked at me and smiled, "back so soon, Dana. I was still enjoying Cyriel's
attention all for myself," she said though she looked like she's really having a
hard time composing sentence.

I sat on the couch adjacent to her bed, "i'm here to break some news."

She took a deep breath, "and what do i have do to with that?"

I shrugged, "nothing, actually. I just want to see you right now, looking misera
ble. Can i take a picture for memories' sake?"

She smirked at me, "do as you please, Ferrer."

After that, a long silence enveloped both of us. And when i decided to break it,
i said, "i am pregnant."

She turned her gaze towards me and said, "with Cy's child? I'll be a good stepmo
ther."

I laughed. Really hard.

"Have you lost your mind? What the f.uck?"

She shrugged, "stating possibilities."

"I'm pregant, Ynna. Cyriel is the father.. Can you not give up?"

She looked at me with a straight face, "you're just as pathetic as i am, Dana. Y
ou're asking me to give up? Why? Are you not that confident that Cyriel will cho
ose you over me?"

I nodded. There's no use to deny that fact. I am scared. Scared of what she is f
or Cyriel.

"Ynna, we both know for a fact that you can never give Cyriel a family of his ow
n.. You will leave him.. eventually."

She smirked, "we can have your baby."

I smirked as well, "as if that will ever happen."

She tried to sit down but failed, "never thought this day would come.. But i'm t

elling you, i don't care if you're pregnant or what. I love him. I wouldn't get
this far for nothing. I won't back down. Not now, not ever."

I sighed an exasperated sigh, "aren't you getting tired of these?"

"Don't i look tired? Of course i am. But i won't give up just because of that. H
e's the only thing that keeps me intact. I can't give him up."

I gave up. This is the last straw. Pagod na din ako..

"Let's make a truce.." she looked at me, "if he wants to be with you, i will giv
e up. I won't bother him with anything. At all.. But if he wants to be with me i
nstead, please let us live in peace, Ynna. Napapagod na ako."

She gave me a sly smile, "if i say yes, would you trust my word?"

I nodded, "i would. Do i have another choice?"

She shrugged, "let's see," then she gave me a smile that made me think twice abo
ut trusting her, "but you know i never played fair."

**
After talking to Ynna, i went home.

"Dana!" my mom called.

I went near her and hugged her, "mom," i called out her name.

She smiled at me and hugged me back, "what happened to my baby? Did Miami do you
good?"

I stopped. What has Miami done to me? It made me realize things. I can't have th
em both, it's either i get one of them, or lose both of them.

Whenever the memory of Andy fooling around with Glorie plays in the back of my h
ead, it just rubs on my face how lonely my life is. Whenever i see Ynna lying on
her bed helpless, it makes me feel really pathetic knowing that she's the bette
r choice for someone out there.

"Mom.." i trailed off.

She held my face and stared at me, "Dana, is something wrong? Tell me, kinakabah
an ako sa'yo eh.."

I shook my head. I can't tell her, not until i confront Cyriel.

Instead, i smiled at her, "i love you, mom."

She pressed both of my hands, "i you, you know that."

My dad arrived afterwards. We ate dinner altogether, just like what a family doe
s.

Andy's Point of View

"F.uck! What's wrong with you?" sigaw nung t.anginang Hans na yun.

"You're a piece of shi.t! A good for nothing jerk who likes to ruin woman's life
!" tapos sinapak ko ulit siya.

F.uck! Pagkatapos ng ilang taon kong paghahanap sa Hans na 'to, dito lang pala s
a Miami ko makikita 'to? Shet talaga!

"What the f.uck is wrong with you man?!"

Tinulak ko siya, "you. I f.ucking want to kill you and burn you and escort you t
o hell , you f.ucking bastartd"

"Louie!"

Napatingin ako kay Glorie, tumatakbo siya papunta sa amin.

"Louie, what did you do?!" sigaw niya sakin tapos nilapitan niya yung Hans na yu
n.

"Just doing you a favor," sabi ko habang tinitignan yung Hans na g.agong yun.

"What is wrong with you, Louie? You said you will talk to him, not beat the crap
out of him!" tapos pinunasan niya yung duguang mukha nung Hans na yun.

Hindi ko na alam yung nagawa ko eh. Nung


yari nung 16 years old ako, nung namatay
Nagdilim na yung paningin ko. Idagdag mo
kay Glorie at Andrei. Ano ba yung hobby
g mawala? Eh g.ago pala siya eh!

nakita ko siya, bumalik lahat nung nang


si Lynne, nung namatay yung anak niya.
pa na siya pala yung g.ago na nang iwan
niya? Mang buntis ng babae tapos biglan

"He's an ass, Glorie."

Sinampal niya ako, "he's an ass but he's the father of my baby!"

Natawa ako, "seriously, Glorie? After all the f.uck you went through, you will s
till stand with that ass?"

"Yes, Louie. I would stand with him no matter what the f.uck i would have to go
through. That's what love means, Louie. It means suffering without asking for an
ything in return. I love him because he's the father of my child."

I smirked, "you will be miserable with him."

"You don't get to talk, Louie. What do you think you're doing with Dana? Don't y
ou think that we're standing on the same page? You'll be miserable with her but
what? You just keep on being with her, on understanding her. Why? Because you f.
ucking love her! You love her, Louie! That is why even though she is pregnant wi
th your best friend's child, there's still a part of you that wishes she'll be w
ith you, that offers yourself to be the father of that child," tuloy tuloy niyan
g sabi.

Tinaas ko yung kamay ko para tumigil na siya, "stop, Glorie."

"No, i won't stop, Louie. You need to hear me out. The reason you chose to be wi
th me instead of being with Dana? You wanna know? Because you are an ass! During
the brief period i got to spend with you, i know you well enough. You don't wan
t to be there when it happens because you know that when you see her cry, everyt
hing will go black. You will do anything for her to the point that you will be y
our pathetic self again. You will offer to father her child. You're scared, righ
t? Scared of what might happen."

Natahimik ako. Ano ba, Glorie?!

"Don't talk as if you know me," sabi ko.

"Oh, yes i f.ucking know you, Louie. Just get the hell out of Miami and finish y
our issues!"

Hindi ako nagsalita. Ano bang gagawin ko?

"You love her but you are scared, Louie. Be there. Tell her how you feel and whe
n she finally made her decision, i'll be here. Come heaven, come hell, i'll be h
ere. If she wants to be with you, i will be the happiest person for you. And if
she didn't choose you, i will be here and help you forget her."

Lumapit siya sa akin, "i kind of love you, Louie. But i am not selfish to want t
o have you for myself. You want to be with her, then go for it. If she doesn't w
ant to, come back to me. I don't mind catching you," tapos hinalikan niya ako sa
pisngi.

Niyakap ko siya, "thank you, Glorie."

"You owe me, Guzman," sabi niya. Natawa naman ako. Nagaya na kay Nof eh! "I'll b
e waiting," sabi niya.

Ngumiti ako bago nagsimulang tumakbo pabalik sa sasakyan ko, "i'll be with her w
hen i see you."

**
Dana's Point of View

"Cyriel," i called out.

I went to Dave's bar.

I went near him and the smell of alcohol welcomed me.

"You're back," sabi niya.

I sat on the stool near him, "bakit ka umiinom?"

Ngumiti siya, "you tell me. Why would i drink?"

"Ano bang sinasabi mo, Cyriel? May problema ba tayo na hindi ko alam?"

He shrugged, "i don't know. I don't even know why i am drinking. Wala na tayo, d
i ba? Wala naman akong karapatang magselos. Di ba?"

"What are you saying? Ano bang pinag uusapan natin?" i asked him.

"I'm jealous, Dana! No, f.uck, i am furious!"

Natakot ako. For the first time, ngayon ko lang nakita si Cyriel na ganito.. Gal
it ba siya dahil nagkita kami ni Andy at tumira sa iisang bahay?

"I-i didn't mean to, Cyriel.. I didn't know that would happen," i reasoned out.

I really didn't know na dun kami pupunta ni Nof! I was surprised as well.

Natawa siya, "no need to explain, Dana. Wala naman akong karapatan eh.."

"Cyriel naman! Don't talk to me like this.." lalo pa't magkakaanak na tayo.

"How to talk to you, Dana? Tell me. Hindi ko na din kasi alam.."

"I am pregnant, Cyriel."

There. I said it.

"Are you really trying to kill me here, Dana?"

Ano?

"W-what, Cyriel? I said i am pregnant! You're gonna be a father!" i almost shout


ed. What the hell is wrong with him? Why is he acting like this?

Natawa siya, "really? Is it me?"

Sinampal ko siya, "how dare you! I may have lived with Andy but the hell, Cyriel
! I am not that kind of person!"

Natigilan siya, "you lived with Andy?"

"Yes, that's the reason why you're angry!"

Ininom niya yung scotch sa harap niya, "more the reason it's hard to believe, Da
na."

Tumayo siya. Hinabol ko siya, "so, ganon na lang yun, Cyriel? I tell you i am pr
egnant then you will act like some jerk with commitment issues?!"

He stopped from his tracks, "you tell me what to believe," tapos inabot niya sa
akin yung isang envelope.

F.uck.

What is this?

"Hindi 'to totoo!" i shouted.

"I don't know what to believe anymore, Dana. I love you but you just keep on giv

ing me reason not to.."

I slapped him again, "it's your child, Cyriel! You know you're my first! How dar
e you doubt me?!"

He smirked, "first, second, third, does it really matter? Hindi naman eh. I told
you i don't care about virginity shts, Dana! Kahit may nangyari sa inyo ni Andy
, what did i tell you? I would still have you! I would accept that child but tel
l me, who's the father?"

I punched him, slapped him, cursed him.

"Cyriel Edrian Perez, you are the father of my child and i hate you!"

I left him standing there and cried myself out. How could he? How could he think
like that?!

I called Josh.

"Josh.."

("D.")

"Where are you?"

("Area 06. Why?")

I didn't answer and ended the call instead. I went there and the moment i saw hi
m, i gave him the hardest slap i could muster.

"I trusted you.." i said and cried.

The envelope Cyriel gave me contains pictures of me and Josh when we went to his
hotel room. When you see the picture, it looks like we went in there together.

"I- i'm sorry, D. But you deserve it," he said.

I looked at him with disbelief in my eyes, "what did you say? I deserve to be do
ubted by the father of my child?"

"You deserve it, D. For what you did to Jamie. She did nothing to you but you ki
lled her."

I snapped, "i didn't kill her, Josh! You know that! How many times did i tell yo
u how sorry i am for what had happened to her?! You know the remorse that haunts
me every single day!"

"Tat for a tat, D. You killed her, you deserve that. At least."

I stared at him. Is this really Josh that i am talking to?

"You're unbelievable, Josh."

"D.. Just.. blood is always thicker than water.."

I just forced a laugh, "the f.uck with you people! You planned this, didn't you?
! You and your cousin!"

You know i never fight fair.

"From the very beginning, you've been toying with me! You made me doubt Cyriel,
you made him believe that he's not the father of my child. Everything has been p
lanned out. You.." i broke down and cried.

Josh tried to console me, "i'm sorry, D. But i need to do that. For Jamie. She's
the only family i have here but you killed her.. You can't blame me for doing t
his.."

I looked at him while crying, "you think this will make her happy?"

He shook his head, "i don't know. But at least she got her revenge."

I stood up, "well, you got your revenge.. and you lost a friend, Josh. Don't you
ever show your face infront of me again."

Cyriel's Point of View

"What?!" sabi ko dun sa pinsan ni Ynna na kasama ni Dana sa picture.

"That.. that picture.. it was my fault. Nothing happened between the two of us.
Look, tell her i am sorry. She's a friend."

Napailing na lang ako. Ano bang nangyayari sa buhay ko? Pinagdudahan ko si Dana.

"Why are you doing this?" tanong ko sa kanya.

"Because she's a friend. And i feel sorry. I'm just trying to fix things," paliw
anag niya.

Pagkatapos niyang ipaliwanag sa akin lahat ng nangyari, pumunta agad ako kay Dan
a.

Hintayin mo ako, Dana.

Dana's Point of View

"Senorita Dana, may naghahanap po sa inyo.."

I stood up even though i am feeling really dizzy.

"Sino daw po?"

"Si Andy po.."

I immediately went down upon hearing Andy's name. What is he doing here? I thoug
ht..

As soon as he laid his eyes on me, he hugged me and said those words..

"I love you, Dana. I'll father your child, just be with me.." he said

"Dana," i turned and saw Cyriel standing behind us, "i'm sorry. Please take me b
ack."

70th Chapter (Epilogue)

Dana's Point of View

"Cyriel, it's a girl.." i said to him with a smile on my face.

After carrying her for nine months, after enduring all those morning sickness, a
fter the excruciating hours of labor, and after going through all the prejudices
thrown at me by the society for being pregnant at an early age, she's finally h
ere..

"Can i look at her?" he asked.

"Of course," i said and gave him a look at our baby.

"She's an angel," he said with adoration in his eyes. He adores her.

"Of course, she is," i said and caressed her small face carefully. She really is
god sent.. All the efforts i exerted just to have her? It is all worth it. Inde
ed it is true that the very moment you see your baby, all the pain you went thro
ugh to have her will mean nothing.

"What will you name her?" he asked.

I gave him a smile and said, "Alys, Alys Zyril Perez."

He gave me a smile in return, "thank you, Dana," he said.

I raised a brow, "for what?"

"For naming her after me.. I mean, after all that i did, i would totally underst
and if you will follow her after your name."

I smiled again. At this moment, i don't want to remember what happened months ag
o. I am happy and i intend to stay that way.

"You are her father, Cyriel. Nothing would change that fact.."

"Pero--"

I cut him, "you just need to be a good father to her, Cyriel. And i assure you,
everything would be fine."

He nodded in approval, "sure we will, Dana. Go now and rest, you've been through
hell," he commented.

I couldn't agree more. The labor was a torture! I don't think i would be pregnan
t for the next five years.

"Hell is the right term, Cy," i said then yawned.

"Go to sleep now," he commanded.

I tucked myself inside the comforter Andy brought for me, "yeah, i think i would
. How about you? Tulog ka na, you've been waiting for like hours."

"That's the least i could do," he said with that sad look on his face.

"Hey, don't be sad, Cy. I totally understand your situation.."

"But still--"

"No buts, no still. She needs you and i'm fine by myself here. Andy's with me. D
on't sweat," i said.

He sighed, "yeah, of course. Andy's there. Say hi to him for me. Sige, good nigh
t, Dana."

I yawned again, "good morning, Cyriel."

And with that, i dozed off.

**
Ynna's Point of View

"Who were you talking to?" i said while still lying on my death bed. The medicin
e the doctor gave me is kicking in my system, and so i feel weak and limp.

He sat on the side of my bed, "Dana. She just gave birth."

I smiled, "just when i thought she would die while giving birth," i sarcasticall
y said.

Cyriel didn't comment on what i said. I would take it as if he's used to me spea
king that way about Dana. It's just how it is, we will never be friends.

"So, is it a bouncing baby boy or an adorable baby girl?"

He smiled, probably thinking about his baby, "the latter. She's really cute."

I held his hand and pressed it, "bet she is, she's your daughter afterall."

"I want to hold her and sing her lullabies," he said with that longing in his ey
es.

Weeks after Dana made her decision, Cyriel flew with me here in Canada. Most of
my relatives are here so i have decided to live my remaining days here. And the
best doctors for my illness are here. My parents are still hoping to prolong my
life, rather my agony.

"Then go home," i said.

He shook his head, "i didn't mean it that way. I'll stay here with you."

"You've done enough, Cyriel. I took you from Dana and made her hate you yet you
are still here with me," i said.

I confessed to him months ago about what i did about the pictures. It's my doing
, i wouldn't deny that. But i am not sorry for what i did, i got him because of
that afterall. But i am sorry for Cyriel.. That look on his face when he told me
that he would go with me? I don't think i could ever forget that.. The pain and
agony were so evident and he was on the brink of crying..

He shrugged, "what could i do? You're all i have."

I shook my head, "you still have your family, and your daughter. You will be fin
e, Cy."

He gave me a weak smile, "my parents hate me."

"They don't.. they're just disappointed. You can tell them you marry me out of p
ity. I wouldn't hold it against you. And have yourself examined. You're HIV free
, Cy. Nothing happened between the two of us, we both know that," i said.

"Sana nga ganun lang kadali yun. They hated me even more nung malaman nila yung
kay Dana. God knows how much i want to marry her.. but she just won't let me," h
e said, and right then and there, i saw again that pain in his eyes. He's still
hurting..

I muster all the strength i have and enveloped him inside my arms, "and you know
that she will be happy. That's what you want, right? Her happiness. Andy would
provide her all the happiness she needs."

"Kaya ko din naman yun eh.."

I smiled, "i know. You can make her happy but that's not the question anymore, C
yriel. The question is who she wants to make her happy. And she made up her mind
. She wants Andy to make her happy."

"You're right, and now i'm stucked with you, i guess," he said with a hint of sm
ile on his face.

I shook my head, "you're still a love sick puppy when it comes to Dana, Cy. You
haven't changed a bit."

He showed me that smile that captivated my heart the very first time i saw it, "
i would forever love her. Alam mo yan."

I nodded, "i know, and i know that you love me as well. Not the same as how much
you love her, but nevertheless, you still love me. I could cope up with that."

He lied down beside me, "i still want to see my baby. I saw her through skype an
d that made me want to go back to the Philippines even more."

I tried to sit, "i said you can go back if you want."

He shook his head, "i promised i'll be with you until whenever. Hindi ko man nat
upad yung pangako ko kay Dana na papasayahin ko siya, tutuparin ko na lang yung
pangako ko na hindi kita iiwan," then he gave me a heartwarming smile.

I sighed. How could i die in peace if i know that when i die, Cyriel would be al
one?

I gave him the folder that i've been hiding for days.

"Ano 'to?" he asked.

"See it for yourself."

He opened the envelope and scanned its contents, "who are these girls? Members o
f your hate list?" He said and showed me the biodata of the most sought after wo
men in the Philippines.

"Ha-ha. Very funny, Cyriel," i said and scattered the pictures and biodata of th
e girls, "some of them are my friends, and rest assured they came from well know
n clan. Philippine's finest."

Cyriel laughed, a thing that he don't do very often. That's why most people thin
ks he is cold, but when in reality, he is one of the most selfless person i know
, "what are you now, a pimp?"

I smiled, "you could think that way. But really, dear husband, how could i die i
n peace when i know that you will be alone?"

He gave out a heavy sigh, "hindi ka pa patay, Ynna. Ano ba yang pinagsasasabi mo
?"

"But i would die soon, husband. Isipin mo na lang na huling habilin ko 'to. Thes
e girls? Date them. If it happens that you like some of them, then go for anothe
r date. This is my way of saying sorry for ruining your supposed to be happy end
ing with Dana, Cyriel."

He hugged me and played with what's left with my hair, "baliw ka talaga. Are you
sure i would date these girls? Baka magselos ka," he joked, "kay Dana pa lang,
sobra ka nang magselos. Pano pa sa mga 'to? It's quite a list."

He, then, scanned the names of the girls.

"I would probably get jealous, but i'll endure," then i hugged him tighter and l
et myself get intoxicated with his personal musk.

He placed the envelope aside and looked into my eyes, "you are really something,
Ynna Isabel Henares. You make me hate and like you at the same time."

I smiled, "i'm one of a kind, Cyriel Edrian Perez. Sino'ng nagsabi na laging tal
unan ang kontrabida? Look at me, i got you."

"But you will never hear me say i love you," he said.

I nodded, "and that's the price i need to pay. But at least i know that you love
me, i'm good with that."

Sara's Point of View

"Babe naman! Nanganak na daw si Dana! We should rush to the hospital!" sigaw ko.
Si Dave naman kasi, kung anu ano pa yung ginagawa. Nandito kasi kami sa restaur
ant. Date date lang since hindi na kami nagkikita these past few days. Busy din
kasi siya sa pagttrain sa company nila habang nagpapakamatay naman ako sa accoun
tancy!

May inaayos siya sa gilid nung table habang naghihintay na ako sa pinto. Nasa gi
lid kasi kami para kita yung view ng city lights.

"Wait lang, babe," sabi niya.

"Ano ba kasi yang ginagawa mo, Dave Albert Cruz?? Nako, siguraduhin mong may kat
uturan yan ha! Dahil jan hindi ko pa nakikita yung inaanak ko!!" sabi ko nang pa
sigaw na. Kasi naman 'tong si Dana, sinend-an pa ako ng picture ni Alys, ayan tu
loy, lalo akong na excite! Sabi kasi nung doctor niya, bukas pa manganganak ang
besty ko pero ayan, ngayon pa nanganak! Ayan tuloy, wala kami dun. Kawawa naman
si Andy dun, mamatay matay siguro sa kaba yun.

Habang may inaayos pa siya na kung anu ano dun, tinawagan ko muna si Dana.

"Besty!"

("I'm finally a mother!") sabi niya. Ang lakas ng energy ni Dana, akala mo hindi
nanganak eh.

"I know, i know. Gusto ko nang pumunta jan. Si Dave kasi, kung anu- ano ang---"

-Say it's true, there's nothing like me and you. Not alone, tell me you feel it,
too. And i would runaway, i would runaway. I would runaway, i would runaway wit
h you..-

"Babe!" sabi niya.

Halos mabitawan ko na yung phone ko sa nakita ko.

Naglakad siya palapit sa akin habang may kagat kagat na rose? Hindi ko mapigilan
g mangiti sa ginawa niya. Si babe talaga!

"Care for a dance?" tanong niya habang nakayuko at nakalakad ang kamay.

"May choice pa ba ako?" sabi ko tapos kinuha ko yung kamay niya.

-Cause i have fallen in love with you, no never have i'm gonna stop falling in l
ove with you. Close the door, lay down upon the floor. And by candlelight, make
love to me through the night. Cause i have runaway, i have runaway. I have runaw
ay, runaway. I have runaway with you-

"Ano bang pakulo 'to?" sabi ko sa kanya, "hindi naman natin monthsary di ba?"

Umiling siya tapos ngumiti ng nakakaloko.

"Nako, Dave Cruz ha! Wag mo kong daanin sa ngiti mo," sabi ko. Kasi naman eh, al
am niya namang lalo akong naiinlove pag nakangiti siya eh. Akalain mo yun? Posib
le pa pala na mas mahulog ako sa kanya? Akala ko mahal na mahal ko na siya, pero
pwede pa pala na mas mahalin ko siya.

Hinalikan niya ako ng mabilis lang, "ang ingay mo talaga. Sayaw muna tayo, babe.
Mamaya mo na ilabas yang mga sasabihin mo."

Dahil natuwa talaga ako sa ginawa niya, nagsayaw lang kami. Nag effort pa talaga
si Dave, may orchestra pa siyang kinuha! Kaya pala kanina pa siya hindi mapakal
i eh!

"Ano nga kasi yung meron?" tanong ko habang naririnig ko pa din yung tunog ng Ru
naway habang tinutugtog ng violin. Grabe, ang tagal na din pala? Halos magdadala
wang taon na kami ni Dave. Parang kahapon lang nung pinasundo niya ako sa limo a
t sinabing mahal niya ako. Parang kahapon lang nung sobrang nag away kami nung h
inalikan siya ni Dana. Parang kahapon lang nung halos hatakin niya na ako para i
pakilala sa buong angkan nila. At parang kahapon lang nung ipagtulakan niya yung
sarili niya sa bahay namin para kilalanin yung pamilya ko. Ang dami na pala nam
ing pinagdaanan.

-Cause i have fallen in love with you, no never have i'm gonna stop falling in l
ove with you.

Itinaas niya yung kamay niya tapos tumigil yung pagtugtog. Tapos--

"Don't tell me magppropose ka??" sabi ko pagkatapos niyang lumuhod.

Nangiti siya, "grabe naman, babe. Hindi ba pwedeng magpanggap ka na hindi ka mak
apagsalita sa sobrang pagka gulat?"

Nangiti na lang ako. Dave Cruz, what have you done to me and what did i do to ha
ve a guy like you?

"Okay, okay. Kunwari surprised ako," sabi ko tapos nilagay yung dalawa kong kama
y sa bibig ko at tinignan siya na parang maiiyak, "w-what are you doing?"

Natawa siya lalo, "kaya mahal na mahal kita eh, kayang kaya mong sakyan yung mga
trip ko," sabi niya sabay naglabas ng velvet na box at binuksan sa harap ko hab
ang nakaluhod siya, "alam mo, balak ko sanang ilagay 'to sa kanin nung main cour
se natin kaya lang sabi ni Dana, baka daw malulon mo yun," sabi niya habang nata
tawa.

"So, alam ni Dana 'to??"

Tumango siya, "yup, babe. Actually, alam na nilang lahat. Ikaw ang huling makaka
alam," sabi niya, "so, as i was saying, i would just do it the traditional way b
y dropping down on one knee. Ayoko yatang mawalan ng future wife dahil lang nabi
laukan ka sa engagement ring."

Hindi ko na mapigilan. Naiiyak na ako. Why do you love me so much, Dave Cruz?

Nginitian niya ako habang nakaluhod at sinabi yung mga salita na hindi ko akalai
n na sasabihin niya, "will you give me the honor of being your husband?"

Dati, akala ko magiging isa lang ako sa mga naging girlfriend ni Dave. Sino ba n
aman ako? Si Sara Gomez, isang normal na babae na nangangarap maging accountant
balang araw. Hindi ako mayaman, hindi din naman sobrang ganda. Eh si Dave? Ang y<
