CHAPTER 4

Two years ago…

“Naku Maya pupunta yata sa condo mo si Sir Richard, hindi daw dito maghahapunan eh.  Namiss ka yata Maya, ayiee.  Sabagay  isang linggo kang nawala.”  Palabas na si Maya ng airport ng tumawag sa kanya si Sabel.

“G-ganun ba Sabel, o sige ba-bye na.  Pakisabi kay Doris i-kiss naman niya ako kay Abby.  Salamat.”

Isang linggo na ang nakakalipas mula ng kausapin siya ni Donya Esmeralda.  Masama man ang loob pero alam niyang tama din naman ang ina ni Richard.  May mga pagkakataong nakakarinig siya ng masasamang bagay tungkol sa relasyon nila ni Richard pero isinasantabi lang niya ang mga ito.  Fairytale nga diba but when reality bites masyado pala talagang masakit.

Nasa ganun siyang pag-iisip ng biglang…

“Hey!”

“J-james.”

“Ang lalim ng iniisip mo, kanina pa ako sa harap mo.  Hindi ka ba susunduin ni Richard?”

“H-ha hindi, hindi.”

“Gusto mo ba ihatid na kita?”

“S-sige.”

Habang nasa sasakyan sila ni James ay may planong nabuo sa isipan ni Maya.

**********

When she felt that someone was opening the door, she immediately pulled James to her and kissed him passionately.  Naging sanhi iyon para matumba sila pareho sa sofa ni James at ang eksenang yun ang nadatnan ni Richard.

************

Present time…

Maya has been very successful with the restaurant business.  Kasama ang kanyang ina, kapatid na si Christina Rose at ang asawa nitong si Jeff ay napalago nila ang Little Pards Chibugan.  Dumami ang branches nito and now she’s busy with her new project which is a fine-dining restaurant.  After almost two years of being an FA, she decided to leave the profession.  The reason being na natatakot siyang magkita pa sila ni Richard.  She kept herself busy with work, para lang maalis sa isip niya si Richard pero sinong niloloko niya.  She still loves HIM and she wants another chance to be with HIM kahit sabihin pang dalawang araw lang.  Kaya naman ng sabihin sa kanya ni Rafi ang tungkol sa “Bachelor Auction” na gaganapin sa isa sa mga fund-raising  party nito ay hindi na siya nagdalawang-isip pa.

Yes, Rafi knows everything.  Nagkita sila minsang nagbibiyahe ito and knowing Rafi she needs to know everything, kung anong nangyari sa kanilang dalawa ni Richard.  Nung una ay gusto pang kausapin ni Rafi si Richard pero nakiusap siyang walang makakalabas sa ano mang pinag-usapan nila.

************

Maaga pa lang ay nasa hotel na si Maya, hindi na siya gaanong nakatulog sa kakaisip kung itutuloy pa niya ang plano niya.  Mabuti na lang at may maliit na kitchen ang room na nakuha niya kaya kahit papaano ay na-focus ang atensyon niya sa pagluluto.  Hindi rin siya sigurado kung pupuntahan pa siya ni Richard, she knows how angry he was to her.

“Please Richard, kahit ngayon lang…  kahit ngayon lang.” usal ni Maya.

Then she heard a knock at the door.

Maya went to open it and there he was… Richard Lim.

“Good morning Mr. Lim, akala ko hindi kana pupunta.”

“Baka bawiin mo ang pera, kawawa naman ang mga bata.” His eyes cold.

“Come in.  Kumain ka na ba?  I cook breakfast for you.” Nakangiting sabi niya dito.

“Kumain na ako.” Ang walang ganang sagot nito sabay upo sa sofa.

Maya kalma lang.  “I see.”

“Now can we go on with business and get over with it.”

“Masyado ka namang nagmamadali… diba sabi sa schedule breakfast muna.  Since kumain ka na then kakain na lang akong mag-isa.” Tinalikuran niya si Richard at pumunta ng kitchen.

“Richard kalma lang.” ang sabi ni Richard sa sarili.  Ang totoo di pa siya kumakain, sinong makakain when you know that you’re going to meet you’re ex whom you loved so much pero niloko ka lang and the thought of making love to her drives him really crazy.

“Ugh Richard it’s just S*X nothing more.” Saway niya sa sarili.

*************

“So what do you want to watch?  Marami akong dinalang DVD.” Si Maya.

“Kahit ano bahala ka na.”

“Ok, let’s watch the Notebook.”

Nailing si Richard sabay bulong ng… “Cheesy.”

“Ano yun?” tanong ni Maya.

“I said cheesy… until now you still like those kind of movies tapos mamaya iiyak ka na.”

Maya snapped back in irritation. “Palibhasa kahit noon pa naman hindi ka ganun ka-sweet kaya hindi ka mahilig sa mga ganitong pelikula.”  Pasalampak siyang umupo sa kabilang dulo ng sofa.

“What did you say?”

Hindi sumagot si Maya talagang naiinis na siya.  Ilang sandali pa ang lumipas and they finally manage to look at each other.

“Fine, if you want to watch it, then we’ll watch it.”

“Sigurado ka?”

“May magagawa ba ako?  Until now mahirap pa ring makipag-argue sa’yo.”

“Ok.” Tumayo si Maya para isalang ang pelikulang panonoorin nila.

Sa loob-loob ni Richard, mabuti na lang at nakatalikod si Maya dahil hindi na niya mapigilan ang kanyang pag-ngiti, he’s like a teenager seeing his crush after a long time.

**********

Nangangalahati na sila ng kanilang pinapanood ng maramdaman na lang ni Maya na unti-unting pinapatong ni Richard ang kaliwang kamay nito sa kanyang mga balikat.  Hindi siya umiwas, she even move closer to him and leaned her head on his shoulder.   He then took her other hand and intertwined it with his right hand.  She looked at him and he looked at her… Richard moved his mouth over hers and it enthralled her senses.  How she misses him, his touch, his kisses, everything about him.  Without words ay sabay silang gumalaw and she ended up with her legs on either side of his hips.   Maya wrapped her arms around his neck and again they started kissing.  It was a kiss of intense heat.

“Maya…”

“Ser Chief…” the endearment escaped gently on her lips.

He heard it and he can’t help but smile.  He misses the term, the endearment, HE JUST MISSES HER PERIOD.

Then Maya stopped kissing him…

“What? W-hy???”

“What is that?” hinahanap ni Maya ang kung ano man ang narinig.

“I don’t know and I don’t care.” Richard couldn’t care less.  All he wanted is to kiss Maya.

They kiss again but then the growling sound came again.  Ayaw man ni Maya ay pilit siyang kumawala sa mga halik ni Richard.

“Was that yours? Hindi ka kumain no?”

“I’m not hungry.” He attempted to kiss her again.

“No!!!” she finally managed to move off his lap.  Inayos niya ang kanyang sarili.

“Maya!!!” he is so frustrated.

“Sabi ko naman sa’yo kumain ka kanina diba.  Pagod ka na nga sa trabaho mo tapos hindi ka pa kumakain ng ayos, ano na lang mangyayari sa’yo?  Magluluto na ako ng lunch natin and this time gusto ko kumain ka ng marami okay.”

“Pero Maya, what about our schedule?”

“Kung kumain ka ng breakfast kanina e di sana nasunod ang schedule natin.” Tinalikuran niya si Richard at tuloy-tuloy siyang pumunta ng kitchen.

Richard fell back in the couch.  Though he felt frustrated at first, he can’t help but smile.  Hindi pa rin nawawala kay Maya ang pagiging maalaga nito, she always wants to take care of everything.

Kinuha niya ang throw pillow at tinakip sa kanyang mukha sabay sabing… “Ser Chief … you’re back.”
