“The Tiger meets his match”

Richard was now inside Maya’s place, with eyes looking thoroughly at all corners of the Room, while Maya at his back…

“pasensya na kayo sa lugar ko at masyadong maliit…Ahm, Sir, bakit po kayo nandito, a-ano po ang sadya nyo?” she asked very meekly so as not to offend him or anything because she didn’t seem to remember any reason for Richard to come over…

Richard turned to Maya, who was quite surprise for his visit…

“Nice place you have here Maya, although masyado ngang maliit.. Well there is something I want to – “

“Naku! yung niluluto ko!!!” he was cut off when Maya sensed a burnt stench coming from her kitchen swiftly she ran towards it to switched off the stove immediately with hands fanning the smoke coming from the pan.

Richard shook his head amused at her spontaneity… He looked for a place to sit and found her sofa next to the small table where he saw pictures of him in a magazine that hanged open…  So, she’s reading an article about me... he was a bit flattered.

Maya went back to him.. “Pasensya na naka ligtaan ko yung nilulu—“

Nanlaki ang mata nya seeing Richard leafing through the magazine… she goes near him and attempted to grab it from him, but Richard was too quick to place it on his back…

He smiled enjoyably at her with his charming look…”Kung alam ko lang sana binigyan nalang kita ng kopya, hindi mo na sana kinailangang gumastos pa para lang dito, Gusto mo ba ng autograph?” he asked teasingly…

“Hindi ah, h-hindi naman akin yan eh, hiniram ko lang yan sa isang boarder dito noh..”

“Really?” he asked doubtedly..

She stood back a little farther from him, but they were facing each other, only that Richard was sitting at her sofa…

“Teka— Sir, ano po ba talaga yung dahilan at nandito kayo? Sa pagkaka alam ko, wala na po akong atraso sa inyo ah ..”

“Maya, kung atraso lang naman,  marami, pero sa lahat ng atraso mo, isa lang ang sisingilin ko.. ” while retrieving back the magazine in front without seeming to want to give it at all…

“Naku sir ah! Masyado na pong gas-gas yung “sorry” ko sa inyo, tsaka tinanggal nyo na ako sa trabaho, kaya quits na po tayo!”

“No Maya…You still have to pay for my Polo shirt, hindi mo alam pero paborito ko yung damit na yun… Mahal yun, and take note Hindi lang yun basta-bastang shirt, may sentimental value sa’kin yun”  he said with the entire conclusive look hoping that Maya will bite it this time…

Richard knew he was being absurd to even make his polo shirt an excuse to justify how guilty Maya is. Well, this was his only last resort, since she already turned him down twice when he offered her a job. This way he has more reason to see her… Funny but brilliant Richard! He thought…

“ Eh, Babayaran ko nalang po kayo pag naka ipon ako.. Promise po yan”

“ Didn’t you hear? may sentimental value sakin yun.. But… (he paused) you don’t have to pay me anything Maya, all you need to do is “agree”…”

“Agree po Saan?”

“Well, uhmm… there is a fund raising Gala event organized by some charities and I, as one of the major benefactor was invited, so basically I need to have an escort. The event will be held next week and since wala akong ibang maisip na pwede maging escort ikaw na lang… and Maya …I won’t take no for an answer..”

“Naku Sir, (shaking her head, and waved her hands in mid-air) hindi po pwede – “

Richard was puzzled at her reply… “Hindi pwede?… Why?”

“Kasi, ayaw ko po, wala po akong isusuot, tsaka di po ako bagay na escort .”

“Please Maya, Im begging you, just this one… And you don’t have to worry about what you’re going to wear, leave that to me… ako ang bahala sa lahat…  just go with me Please” He said pleadingly..

“Sorry talaga sir pero ahm—  kasi Sir, hindi po talaga ako sanay sa mga ganyan, tsaka nakaka hiya po, ayoko.. pasensya na., babayaran ko na lang po kayo..”

“No! I won’t accept any payment except for that Maya! “wala ka na mang ibang gagawin kundi samahan ako eh”  He put the magazine aside as he was now getting annoyed at her flimsy excuse…

“Sir, bakit naman kailangang ako, pa?  marami na man pong iba dyan eh, tsaka diba dyan sa magazine naka sulat maraming na li- link sa inyo, bat di nyo na lang sila imbitahin! “

He was surprised at what Maya just said. True enough he can bring anyone aside from her and no one will ever refuse him surely a lot of women would vie and be honored to go with him, But  “what he wants, he gets”…And he wants Maya… not one else period!…

“Maya, ikaw yung gusto kong maging escort, just tell me, anong gusto mong kapalit para lang sumama ka… Promise, I will give it to you…” Yes he was willing to give anything to her; he perceived this as one opportunity for his Tito Alfonso who was also invited to assume that he is into dating…

“Sir Ayoko po…” she said stubbornly..

“Maya, Please”  he is restraining himself as at any minute now he might explode if she continues to reject him…

“Pero Sir, hindi po talaga ako pupunta, kahit pilitin nyo pa ako talagang hindi, nag sasayang lang kayo ng oras, iba na lang isama nyo…” she said firmly…

“That’s it!” He stood up, he couldn’t contain the annoyance anymore, no one has ever rejected him, ever…He already begged, plead, and all yet she still remain stiff! His head boiled up as she was not taking him seriously… He felt she stepped on his ego and no one has ever done that, not even his father… He looked at her fiercely without saying a word… He is now mad…

His eyes narrowed, he walks toward her, not seemingly to deflect his sight on her, when he went nearer he grab her arm with one hand and pulled her closer to him, they were only an inch apart, he moved his other hand to the back of her neck and pulled it to kiss her fervently, he felt her one hand struggled to loose from his grip, while her other hand struggled to push his chest ,but he was too strong for her, the push got weaker and weaker as the kiss went on… until he felt Maya  gasping for air.. Then he broke it, he breathes heavily, gazed at her for a second and hurriedly went out the room leaving Maya totally shocked…

Maya felt her knees weaken, hands were trembling and her chest was pounding almost as if deafening her… she hasn’t recovered yet as she still stood frozen, for the very first time in her life she felt that unusual feeling… She didn’t know what hit her, it’s as if part of her got awakened from a deep slumber, everything was just inexplicable…

———–

Richard slumped his body on the sofa near his bed, feeling exhausted, he didn’t know what has gotten into him when he kissed Maya… After he broke the kiss and saw Maya’s reaction, he can’t help but feel a little guilt… None of that would have happened if she just agreed to any of his offers… Bakit Richard? Is she, in any way obligated to accept your offer, C’mon, you are just unreasonable and to even kiss her? You only met her few times, ano na lang ang iisipan nya sayo?  He released a sigh, and shook his head… He stand up to take a shower, he thinks he needed it.

After taking the shower, he wasn’t at all sleepy so he went to the veranda for a little breathing time…

Manang Fe was about to close the glass door when she sees Richard, so she approached him…”Ricardo?”

Richard turned to face her… “Manang”

“Oh, bakit gising ka pa?”

“Di po ako makatulog eh,”

“Ano ba kasi yang iniisp mo, at di ka makatulog?”

“Ahm, wala na man po…hindi lang talaga ako makatulog…”

“Gusto mo ba ng kape, ipagtitimpla kita?”

“No its okay Manang, mag pahinga na po kayo”  he smiled at her lovingly.

Sigurado ka ba talagang ayaw mo ng kape? O sya sige… she was about to leave him when Richard halts her…

“Ah Manang sandali— uhm, kasi… he sighed, uhm Manang, what are you going to do if… (He was having a hard time explaining) you know when you do something bad to someone; I mean you’ve done it out of anger and frustrations pero hindi mo naman po sinasadya… You were just so upset kasi …kasi  that someone disappointed you”

Manang Fe was all smiles as he was having difficulty in explaining… “Ricardo, simple lang naman ang sagot dyan…”

He was waiting for her to continue…

“Humingi ka ng tawad, ganun lang ka simple yun”

“Pero paano po pag di nya tanggapin yung sorry ko dahil baka po galit sya?”

“Ricardo, masyado kang nag iisip ng kung ano-ano, ang mahalaga naman  sa pag hingi ng tawad ay ang sinseredad mo, kung anong nandito (pointing at his chest)…nasa kanya na yun kung tatanggapin nya o hindi basta ang mahalaga humingi ka ng tawad ng may pagsisisi… Sandali nga Ricardo, Babae ba yan?”

Richard just smiled at her question, when Manang Fe noticed that, she did not bother to wait for his answer anymore…She patted his face and said… “Kaw talagang bata ka, sige na at matulog ka na” with that Richard hugged her and thanked her…

———

Meanwhile Maya was tossing and turning on her bed, like Richard she too couldn’t sleep… Every time she closes her eyes, the incident earlier came rushing back to her mind… She gets up to sit and scooped her face with both of her hands, pouted her lips then released a puff…

”Hmmm… Na kaka inis na man to oh, Maya matulog ka na kasi… wala lang yun, wag mo ng isipin yun…Okay…she inhaled & exhaled…”Maya Kalma ka lang”.. She Paused calmly, then…

“Eh First kiss ko yun eh! Paanong wala lang…”

“Arrgggghh…kasalanan nya to… humanda talaga sya sakin, bu bug-bugin ko talaga sya pag nagkita kami, wala akong paki alam kong presidente pa sya ng Pilipinas o kahit na sino pang CEO, lagot talaga sya sa’kin… Isusumbong ko sya kay Papa— natigilan sya, “Si Papa… miss na miss ko na sya”  then a sudden tears were slowly drifting down her smooth face, she lie down back to bed until sleep overtook her.

———-

Morning came; it’s almost 8 when Maya woke up she will do the laundry today, she gathers all the clothes and put it in a pail, she opened the door and when she stepped outside…

“H- Hi” a timid voice coming from Richard greeted her… Nag kukumahug papasok si Maya but Richard was quick to hold her arm…

“Maya wait—“He looked at her, Maya gaped at the hand holding her arm, then looked straight to his eyes…

Richard sensed it, she wants him to let go of her…so he gently released his hold… “Uhm.. Maya” He was waiting for her to get steady before he proceed…

“ uhmm… well, I uhm… I’m sorry about last night…” there he said it…

“Can we talk Maya?”

Maya just blinked at him, not saying anything… (Ano Maya, bugbugin na natin?.. Sandali, nag sorry na man diba?… Pero Maya, hindi na maibabalik ng sorry nya ang first kiss mo, diba nga dapat sa magiging  asawa mo lang yung kiss na yun..) Her mind was busy arguing that’s why she did not hear what Richard were saying…

“Maya?”

“Maya?” Richard now patted her shoulder…

“AY MAYA!” Ano nga ulit yung sinasabi mo?  Uttered Maya in a surprise…

“I asked you if we could talk”

“Talk?”  uhm, mag lalaba pa kasi ako… sa susunod na lang sige alis ka na”

Hey, Galit ka ba?

Maya, was not really in the mood today, after all what happened last night, he has the nerve to face her and to even ask her if she’s mad?…it’s her time to get pissed, she thought…

“Ano sa tingin mo Mr. Lim? Pagkatapos ng ginawa mo sakin, tatanungin mo ako kung galit ako? Aba Hindi porket kilalang tao ka eh may karapatan ka ng gawin sa’kin yun, wala akong paki alam kung sino ka, at pwede ba marami pa akong gagawin kaya umalis ka na!”

“But Maya… I said I was sorry”

“Kahit anong gawin mong sorry, hindi na nun maibabalik yung first kiss ko!” She paused, realizing what she had just said, she covered her mouth, and she was blushing…

Richard upon hearing that couldn’t contain his smile … “Really? That was you first kiss?”

She looked at him fiercely, and said… Hindi naka katawa Mr. Lim…

“Okay” he replied still smiling, he was enjoying the moment; she’s too cute when she’s angry, especially when she blushes… He was wetting his lips and stared at her charmingly… (She is definitely the one!) He thought, and said, “Okay Maya… I’ll go ahead”

Maya’s eyed followed him as he gets into his car and drove away…
