ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE 2

STRIKE 2

Maya woke up early she had set this day to find another job, she took an early shower then bought some pan de sal as her breakfast as and newspapers nearby. While eating she was busy marking those jobs she thinks she can handle.

Meanwhile at his condo, Richard also got up early; he is packing up all his things as he will be transferring now to his dad’s mansion, it took him a while before deciding to move there knowing that memories of his childhood along with his father will continue to visit him often. Joma arrived to help him carry his things on the way to the mansion.  But before that, he summoned Sonny to find Manang Fe (his former Nanny who also left the mansion after he left) to stay with him at the mansion just like the old days… And they were able to convince her. He also tasked Liza to find him a maid and a cook…(of course its Doris & Sabel)..

As soon as he got off his BMW he was welcomed by Doris & Sabel together with Manang Fe who arrived a day earlier. He kissed her and embraced her tightly. He was glad to see this old woman, whom he considers his second mother, whom he shared all his miseries when no one was able to. Its true he was alone, but with Manang Fe around somehow lights up all the burden he was feeling inside during those difficult moments with his father.

Manang Fe didn’t know about his father’s passing, when Sonny informed him she didn’t bother to think twice when Richard wanted her to stay with him. She love Richard like her own, and if that would make Richard happy then she will do so…

Its already 4 pm Richard  choose to stay in his room with his laptop, trying to finish some papers, but he lacks those important documents in his office…

“Kung nakuha ko lang sana yun kagabi,  ( raised his two eyebrows and na papa iling sya) that silly girl”..  he decided to go and get the files personally, so he will also see Ryan later for some drinks, this time he make sure he has his keys, although maaabutan pa naman nya si Liza.. “mas mabuti na yung sigurado” he thought…

He is on his way, but he got caught in a heavy traffic, and its almost 5  when he arrived, pumunta muna sya ng office nya, signed some papers, discussed some things to Liza and took all the papers he needed, then off to meet Ryan..

Maya felt exhausted, she spent her day searching for another side line, but today is not her lucky day..

“Nakaka pagod naman…pero kaya ko ito…inhale, exhale lang maya.. tama.. pero mukhang kailangan ko ng energy, maka pag kape na nga…”

She enters a coffee shop to buy some  when she noticed the time…

5.30! naku! Kailangan ko ng mag madali!” dali-dali nyang binayaran ang coffee nya at nag madaling pumara ng jeep papuntang LGC building.. it was exactly 5.45 when she arrived..

She presented her ID to the guard on duty then run her way inside with a coffee in her hand, when she reached the corner, she bumped onto a man, wearing an immaculate white Polo shirt while holding some folders which now got stained due to the slosh of the coffee she was holding…

Maya gasped at what just happened…

“Naku! Sorry, sorry talaga”… she instinctively wipe his polo with her hanky, as if it would help the stain disappear.. When she looked up na surprise sya to see a familiar face..

____

Richard is about to head its way out to see Ryan when a woman bumped at him spilling the coffee on his shirt, she was now wiping his shirt, then he looked straight at her…

Their eyes meet…

IKAW?!–

They said in unison..

“Ikaw na naman?”  Why do I always get in trouble with you? Richard said exasperated…

“Eh, ikaw tong di tumitingin sa dina daanan mo eh, tapos ikaw pa tong may ganang mag sungit!” maya said in defense…

“What?! Ako pa ngayon ang di tumitingin?, eh ikaw tong nag ta tatakbo eh..”

Okay..okay.. sige na, kasalanan ko na, nabangga kita… pero nabangga mo rin naman ako, eh nagka banggaan tayo so quits lang…( malas mo lang may dala akong kape…)

Richard now was getting annoyed at her lame excuses..

“Sorry na nga, di ko naman yun sinasadya eh.. okay ganito na lang… sumama ka sakin para maka pag bihis ka, may extra shirt doon sa utility station namin..”

“What?!”

“May pa what- what ka pa jan, halika na nga…”  at muli hinila na naman nya ito at di na naka palag si Richard, mabuti na lang at walang naka kita sa kanya kung hindi ay matutunaw sya sa hiya…

They entered the room, Maya opened the locker to get him an extra shirt..Then handed it to him..

“Eto yung ipapa suot mo sakin?” asked Richard a bit insulted…

“Alam mo ang arte arte mo, malinis na man to ah, kumpara jan sa suot mo, mas lalo kang pagtatawanan nyan…

Wala ng nagawa si Richard, but to wear the white shirt with a “JANITOR” printed on it…Hinubad na nya ang damit nya..

Lumaki ang mata ni Maya upon seeing his built..Maya conservative as she is, turned her back on him..

“Uhmm… sige, ah, labas muna ako… bilisan mo kasi magbibihis pa din ako””

With that she went out.

“whew”, na pa buntong hinga si Maya, she hold onto her chest, calming herself as she was feeling a little giddy, she hasn’t experience being like this before..

______

Richard now got out so it’s her turn to change into her uniform…

A minute later, his phone rang.. it was Ryan calling him..

He hears the door open, Maya by that time was finish changing..

He raised his voice a little louder so that Maya can hear,  Something happened, and I doubt if I can make it tonight, pasensya na, but i think (he now turn to look at Maya’s reaction)  I’ll just meet you tomorrow…then he ended the call..

Maya stood by the door, biting her lips… She felt guilty, he approached Richard..

“Sorry…”

Richard put his hands on his pocket avoiding Maya’s gaze..

“Oi sorry na nga…” still no reaction from Richard..

So she poked him on the side that jolted Richard… Then she made a “peace” sign…

He looked at her, forcing himself not to smile at her cuteness…Richard at times like this, he would now be a growling tiger to a point where he abruptly fire someone for being so irresponsible or fallible when it comes to work…But now, with all the trouble he encountered with her, he seemed to be a tamed Tiger..

“Your name is Maya right?”

She nods..

“Well, it seems we got off to a bad start, I’m Richard” then stretch out his hand to Maya… Maya smiled and reached for his hand…

“nice to meet you—Naku!” Maya paused…

He was anticipating that Maya had recognized him after telling her his name…

–          “ Kailangan ko na palang mag trabaho.. sige ha, maiwan na muna kita dito, buh-bye” and hurriedly grab some cleaning tools..and left him there…

(Toinks!)

Few people was heading to the utility room, probably its Maya’s workmates…he thought, and by this time  employees were also now heading to the exit for the time off… as much as he wanted to go out, he couldn’t and he wouldn’t..

He think he would just stay at the room, but other Janitors & Janitress will go in and out of the room, he was looking at the wet papers he was carrying, he decided to go back to his office instead … he luckily  found a cap, hanging near the locker so he wear it so that no one would notice him..then headed its way to the elevator…

He was pressing the elevator buttons and when it opened…

(Boom!)

His eyes widened seeing Liza along with the other employees, staring straight at him.. (Rather at his shirt) He stood frozen…

Sir Richard? Liza uttered in a stun (she was looking at his shirt)… ahhm.. Sir uwi na po kami.. Goodnight po.. with that, everyone move to go out of the elevator…(patay malisya yung iba)

He watched them walking out of the elevator, he even hears an employee murmuring to the other…

“Ang GWAPO na man nung Janitor”

“Oo nga” ayieeee (kilig)

Hearing that somehow lessen his embarrassment…

When the elevator was clear, pumasok na sya…

He was on his way to his office, he wanted Joma to send him some clothes, but he realized there’s no need for that as at any moment, pauwi na rin na man sya…

He was trailing at what happened, for him sobrang bilis ng pangyayari that he couldn’t believe everything… he’s never been embarrassed, nagyon lang…

 “This was all her fault!“ (his eyes narrowed at the source of all this ludicrousness)

Maya was now on her assigned floor, (where Richard’s office was located) as usual, she began mopping the floor, when she hears a footstep towards her, then stop.. She turns to know kung sino…

A man is standing in front of her, with narrowed eyes…

“Oh ikaw pala! anong ginagawa mo dito-  uhhmm ano nga ulit yung pangalan mo?”

“Its Richard” he said coldly…

Wow! Kapangalan mo pala yung Presidente…ang galing na man…

“Well, Sabi nila di ko lang yun kapangalan, ka mukha ko pa raw…”

“Weh? Di nga..Sabi nila gwapo daw yun, maputi, chinito at malaki yung pangangatawan at andaming nag kaka gusto (Hearing all those praises flattered him).. sandali!  –   oo nga noh? Maputi ka, hmmm.. chinito, maganda naman yung pangangatawan mo.. gwapo??? Pwede na rin…”

Pwede? He asked dissatisfied but was enjoying the moment.

“Oo, pwede na…may hitsura ka na man eh…”

Again, Richard felt defeated, talagang she never recognized him he doesn’t know whether to get insulted or amazed at her… so he tries to just go with it na lang…

“So malamang mag ka gusto ka rin dun sa presidente?” he was waiting for her answer, expecting that she would…

“Ay naku! Malabo.. kasi ang gusto ko yung Moreno, matangkad, tama ang pangangatawan hindi na man kailangan gwapo basta mabait lang.. “

“What?!”  He asked disappointed…

“Oh bakit? Eh sa yun ang type ko eh..” sandali nga, saan ka ba pupunta? Late na at diba sabi ko bawal ka dito.. she said in a calm and friendly way…

“Maya! The reason I’m here is because, nandito ang office ko and i need to print another copies of this papers na binasa mo…and (he dangles his keys so that Maya would see it) may dala akong susi” He smiled at her scornfully…

Maya was looking at him intently…

“Why?” Richard asked curiously…

“Ano ba ang posisyon mo dito? Kasi sa pag kakaalam ko dito yung office ng mga executives…

at saka-“

They were interrupted by Manong Guard who was surveying the place; he stopped when he saw Maya in front of a man with a cap holding some folders in his hand…

Maya? Sino yang kausap mo? Both Maya and Richard turned to look at manong guard..

When the Guard went nearer, he paused..

“Sir Richard?  Maya? ..Naku! Maya, hindi mo na naman ba pinapasok si yung Presidente?

It was now Maya’s turn to get shock..

P-president? She turn to look at Richard.. I-ikaw? She gasped, then covered her mouth…

Upon seeing Maya’s reaction Manong Guard bit his lips as he now remembers what Richard told him last night, when a same scenario took place… that they would just keep Richard’s identity unknown to her. But Manong slipped this time…

Richard breaks in…

“Its alright Manong, uhmm.. ako ng bahala dito”

S-sige po Sir, pasensya na po, sige po alis na po ako… with that Manong left, scratching his head…

Maya was now turning red; she wanted to faint immediately so that she can escape the embarrassment engulfing her…

Naku..s-sir.. Uhmm…ano p-pasensya na…eh, ano kasi…. She couldn’t find the right words to say at the moment..

Richard couldn’t hide the smile seeing Maya stammering..

“Maya…” he said calmly..

“Sorry Richard, este Sir Richard pala.. hindi ko kasi al-“

“Maya!”  Richard raised his voice higher  then puts his right hand on Maya’s shoulder to steady her.. Relax Maya…

Sir…

“Shhhh…not a word Maya” He shushed her, “follow me..”

“Po?”

“Uulit-ulitin ko pa ba? I said follow me…”

“o-okay sir”.. (sabi ko nga follow you)…she murmured..

They were at his office; Richard sat down on his chair… He leaned and observing Maya who was standing in front of his table, he could sense that she was nervous as she was busy biting her lips, pressing her fingers and bowing down her head…

“Sit down Maya”

Maya did as she was told… She was quiet… she couldn’t even look at him…She was like a child being Reprimanded by a Principal in the Principals office…

Sweet Revenge.. Richard thought, with a smirk all over his face…Might as well practice the power given…

“So, uhm.. your new here?”

She nod, “dito po ako inassign ng agency namin”… still not looking at him..

“So who will I blame for not recognizing me?” Si Manong Guard, Your Agency?”

( Maya Kaya mo yan) Maya sighed “Sir Richard, pasensya na po talaga.. di ko naman po sinasadya eh, aksidente lang po talaga yung kanina..”

“Aksidente?” Then how about last night?

“Sir, janitress po ako, natural naglilinis po ako  di ko po kasalanan kung.. kung… nadulas kayo…”  (naku Maya, Lagot na) she put both her hands on her head..

Pati yung pag hila-hila mo sa akin? Aksidente?

Nanlaki ang mga mata ni Maya… “ss-Sir, eh, hindi naman kayo nag pakilala eh…”

“Bakit? Maniniwala ka ba if nag paki lala ako? I doubt it! Tapos pina suot mo pa ako nito, (pointing at his shirt)…My employees will now make fun of me, don’t you realize that?

“Eh, sir naman eh… Nag sorry na po ako diba? At saka—

your FIRED!” a sudden reply coming from Richard cut her…

To be continued……

__________

it’s as if part of her got awakened from a deep slumber… “Maya kalma ka lang”
