Accidentally In Love 5

unspoken

———-

While in the car, Richard is all smiles knowing that he was the lucky man to have Maya’s first ever kiss…He went back to the scene last night, where his lips touched hers, though admittedly he was a “thief” for stealing her first kiss, but who can blame him? For everything about her is just irresistible, it would be a torture for him if pina lampas pa nya ang pagkaka-taong yun… He bit his lips as he imagined it…it was enticing, smooth, and enchantingly delicious – KRING… 3x

He was disturbed by the ring of his phone… it was Ryan calling…

“Ryan, napatawag ka?”

“Yes brod, nasaan ka na ba? We’re already here in the conference room with with Atty. Gie…

Ryan didn’t hear any reply from Richard…

Wait? Pare, wag mong sabihing nakalimutan mo?” “Tsk..tsk..tsk.. Sinasabi ko na nga ba eh…Pare, ngayon yung meeting natin with the DRV Foods Corporation… sige hintayin ka namin, they’re already here…

“Okay Ryan… I’ll be there in no time, don’t worry”

———

Richard arrived a little late…

“I’m sorry, medyo traffic lang…”

The guest said its okay so they went on…Ryan introduced the 3 gentlemen to Richard…

“Richard, this is Mr. Alvarez, Mr. Castillo and Mr. Ventura” then the 3 of them shake hands with Richard”

James breaks in… “Mr. Lim I know you were expecting my Father Vergilio and Tito Arturo but there are things they need to fix back in San Nicolas so kami nalang yung pinadala…”

Richard nod in agreement…

Then they started with the meeting…they were discussing about the arrangement regarding the joint venture with the DRVF Corporation, wherein they came up with a project of putting in a Resort and Restaurant in San Nicolas shoreline and since the LGC already had their subsidiary located in San Nicolas in which they acquire 1st class fresh produce from DRV Foods corp., they plan on expanding it by adding another segment, wherein it will be jointly controlled by the LGC & DRVF Company. The project was already discussed few months ago, attended personally by Arturo & Vergilio, but at that time, it was his Tito Alfonso who represented the LGC. And it is only now that they expressed their consensual agreement with the project. The deal is final and they will be signing the contract in a couple of weeks…

Then the meeting is now over and everyone is shaking hands…

“It’s a pleasure meeting you Mr. Lim” James said … while shaking Richard’s hand…

“The pleasure is all mine Mr. Ventura…”

Then Atty. Gie & Ryan escorted the guests out of the conference room…

———

After the meeting, Richard proceeds to his office…Ryan followed…

——–

“Saan ka ba galing kanina? Hindi ka naman basta-basta nakaka limot ah?”

“may pinuntahan lang ako” as they were now seated on the couch of his office.

“Pinuntahan? Ang aga naman ata, Baka naman kaka galing mo lang sa chick mo?”

Richard shook his head and smiled… She’s no chick Ryan…

“oh, Seryoso ah, Sandali nga, may hindi ka sinasabi sa’kin eh,pinag lili-himan mo na ako ha”

Richard could only laugh at Ryan, he knows hindi sya tatan-tanan nito…

“Let’s just say, may nahanap na akong pwedeng maging…solusyon sa problema ko, kaya lang mukhang mahihirapan ako eh,“

“Solusyon… You mean Wife? Temporary Wife?” Ryan asked intrigued, emphasizing the word Temporary…

“I don’t know, we’ll see…actually she used to work here as a janitress, but I just fired her”

“Ano?! Janitress? And Fi-nire mo?…wait pare, naguguluhan ako saýo! Bakit janitress? And paano papayag yun kung fi nire mo? You are Weird Pare!”

Then Richard told him everything, from the first time they’ve me to that day when he kissed her, and sa lahat-lahat ng i- kunwento ni Richard, the only thing that struck Ryan was the kiss thing…

“ Whoa! Wait pare, you kissed her?!…Ilang beses lang kayo nag usap, kiss agad, ibang klase ka rin ah!”

“Sabi ko naman diba, I didn’t mean to… well, it just happened I got frustrated, he rejected me!”

“Oh I see, Kaya ka frustrated kasi hindi ka sanay na tina tanggihan tama ba? And because of that, feeling mo inapakan nya yung pride mo…tsk..tsk..tsk…Ibang klase din yang reasoning mo ha!” Ryan said shaking his head…

“And you know what pare, it was her first…” Di maitago yung smile ni Richard while saying that, he felt proud…

Ryan again shook his head…”Bilib na ako sa’yo Brod, ang tindi mo!…So, sya na nga ba?”

“I still don’t know, all I know is… I find her attractive, that’s why maybe I can… you know, invite her for a date or something like that”

“But how are you going to do that, diba nga galit sya sayo?”

Nag kibit – balikat si Richard…”I don’t know, bahala na!”

“Talagang tinamaan ka sa kanya noh, Naks! I can’t believe it, akala ko ba model yung mga type mo…yun pala sa isang janitress ka lang bibigay..”

“She’s no ordinary woman Ryan, believe me! There’s more to her and stop calling her janitress, hindi na sya ganun…”

“Okay…relax, Anyway brod, good luck sayo, sana mapapayag mo sya bago matapos ang taon…and (he whispered) pare, tumatanda ka na, baka tigang ka na… Kaya kailangan mo na ng dilig… (They both chucked),

“ sige pare aalis na ako”…

———–

Its 4.30 pm, Richard decides for an early time out, he might be caught up in a heavy traffic. He stopped by one of their famous Restaurant to take out some special dish… ”Baka sunog ulit yung kainin nya” he thought… Yes he plans on visiting her again despite how angry she must be to him…

———–

Maya hears a knock, nagtungo sa door and glances at the peephole…

“Sya na naman?” The knock continued. “Naku! Ano na naman gingawa nya dito?” She sighed heavily before slightly opening the door…

Ikaw na naman?” she asked with a furious look…

“I brought you something” he lifts up the brown paper bag, while displaying a lop sided smile.

Naku ayan na naman Maya yung mga ngiti nya…she felt giddy inside but she knew she has to make an angry facade… “Ano yan suhol? Hindi ako tumtanggap nyan…”

“Think of this as a…peace offering” then maya-maya pa he makes a peace sign…

Maya just stared at him while crossing her arms pinipigilan nya ang sarili nyang di ngumiti at kiligin…

“Maya, I just want us to talk about what happened, ayokong sumama ang loob mo sakin”

Still no reply from Maya…

“Please Maya” he pleads…

“Oh sige, kung may gusto kang sabihin, sabihin mo na… makikinig ako..”

“H-hindi mo ba ako papa pasukin muna?”

“Nanlaki ang mata ni maya, upon hearing that… HINDI! Dyan ka lang!Baka ano ulit ang gawin nito sa’kin.. Mahirap na! she thought…

“Ahm.. okay…Ehem, Ehem”…He feigned a cough while touching his neck…” Maya I think my throat parched, pwede bang maki – inom?”

Maya with a knowing look…

“Mr. Lim, bumenta na yan, kung wala kang sasabihin sige, makaka – alis ka na!”

“Alright Maya…Haay, Ang tigas talaga! He murmured… Just hear me out okay…about last night… I am very sorry, I uhm… I didn’t mean to… uhm… kiss you, and I’m sorry if your first kiss had to be that way… Na frustrate lang ako, But I promise I won’t do that again. Please believe me I’m true to my words, I won’t do that again…”unless you want me to”, he murmured…

Ano yun???” Maya asked curiously about the last sentence he just uttered…

“ Ang sabi ko…I won’t do that again.. hindi ko talaga sinasadya, Please forgive me, I promise to behave na” his eyes were twinkling…

Maya is looking at him while he is talking… Bakit ba kasi ang gwapo nitong Mamang to… But she‘s aware to what he was saying… and somehow felt his sincerity…

“Alam mo Mr. Lim kahit sabihin kong okay lang—she paused, pero hindi ibig sabihing okay lang yun… Ang ibig kong sabihin kung sasabihin ko lang naman na okay lang— pero siyempre hindi okay yun…okay?”

Ha? Ano yun?” confusion was written all over Richard’s face, wala syang naintindihan sa mga pinagsasa-sabi ni Maya…

“Hay, oo nga pala (made in china nga pala ito, palibhasa kailangan ko pang englishen para maintindihan nya)… Ang ibig kong sabihin Mr. Lim, tapos na yun..,nangyari na… at kahit na mag sorry ka pa hindi na nun maibabalik yung…” she sighed… Hindi na nya tinapos pa, because she’s a little shy to reiterate that he was indeed her 1st kiss…

She looks down to what he was carrying… “ Ano ba yang dala mo?”

“Ah yes, dinalhan kita ng dinner, baka kasi sunog ulit yung kainin mo” and smiled to her so sweetly…

Ayan na naman yung mga ngiti nya! Nakaka inis… she thought…

Somehow, despite the annoyance, she was touched by his thoughtfulness, he didn’t need to do that…Knowing that he is the Richard Lim, and not everyone has been given the opportunity to mingle with him, yet he was here outside her door, asking for forgiveness…so ganun na lang yun Maya, total gwapo na man sya? Ganun lang yun? Kahit na ninakaw nya ang first kiss mo?!.”… She chuckled at her own thoughts, which didn’t go unnoticed by Richard…

“Your laughing, does that mean na okay na tayo?”

“Hindi pa, pero sayang din yang dala mo kaya… sige na nga pasok ka na…pero— kapag ginawa mo ulit yun, idedemanda kita ng…attempted Rape!”

“Huh?! Attempted rape?”… natawa na lang si Richard…

“Nag kaka intindihan ba tayo Mr. Lim?”

Richard nods and said…”Okay… Uhhm Maya… Please call me Richard, Mr. Lim is just too formal”

“Di naman tayo close ah… pero Okay, kung yan ang gusto mo…”

Sa isip ni Richard…Not yet Maya, but eventually…

Then they went inside…

———-

He put the bag on the dining table and sat down, while Maya is preparing the plates for them, they shared the food, and they talked the whole time about everything… Maya would ask and Richard would answer her every questions, but when its Richard’s turn to ask her, Maya would either decline to answer, change the topic or lie at some point… Maya didn’t want him to know everything about her…

Then it became a routine for them, every night Richard would visit her and bring food for her, Maya kept on telling him, that he doesn’t have to do that, But Richard keep on insisting. They talk almost every night, they enjoyed each other’s company…Richard was Maya’s comfort whenever she misses her father…

One time Richard gave her a phone so that they can communicate any time they want, Maya refused but Richard, brilliant as he is, found a solution to her stubbornness…

Maya was surprised to the sound of a phone ringing on her sofa…only to find out that Richard had left it there intentionally, with a note saying: You won’t win this Time!

“Hello Richard? Ang daya mo talaga!”…

“It’s not madaya Maya, it’s what you call tactic” then they both laugh…

———-

One night, Richard and Maya were at the dining table eating…

“Hindi ka ba uuwi sa inyo?” Asked Richard…

“Maya was surprised to his question”.. Lagot Alam na ba nya?

“Maya?”

“Ahm.. b-bakit mo naman nai tanong?”

“Diba sabi mo uuwi ka sa inyo, kaya nga di mo tinanggap yung alok ko sa yong trabaho diba?”

“Ah oo nga pala”…Nakalimutan ko…whew… She thought…”Kasi ano, ahm…nagbago na isip, ko, sa makalawa nlang siguro ako uuwi sa amin…”

“Okay… Alam mo bang bukas na yung Gala? And since wala naman akong escort, hindi na lang din ako pupunta”

“Eh, ang dami mo ngang pag pipilian eh, may model, may artista… oh ano pa hinahanap mo?”

“Are you referring to what you read in the magazine? They’re just our endorsers Maya…wait… Are you jealous?”

“Ako? Mag seselos?, bakit na man, diba nga hindi kita type… Moreno kaya ang gusto ko nakalimutan mo na ba?”

Of course she lied, ayaw nyang malaman ni Richard that she was falling for him, also she doesn’t want to assume things, she thinks the reason why Richard spends time with her is because he was just guilty of firing her, or any other reasons except for the reason that he likes her too…

“But Maya, I’d still want you to be my escort, Ikaw ang gusto kong kasama, wala ng iba…Pero kung ayaw mo talaga, hindi na kita pipilitin…”

Maya contemplates for a while…

“Richard, sino-sino ba yung mga imbitado sa gala?”

“I have no idea Maya, I was just invited…”

“Sa tingin mo ba imbitado yung…” she was about to say “DRVF Corp.” but she stopped.. Hindi na man siguro imbitado sila Papa, at saka hindi naman mahilig umattend si Papa sa mga ganung event…she thought…

“Sige, papayag na akong maging escort mo, pero sandali lang tayo ha…uwi din tayo kaagad.”

“Really Maya?!” Richard couldn’t believe it; he’d almost jump out of his seat… “That’s just great Maya! Thank you…

———

Richard had Maya fetched by Joma for her make over on the way to a prestigious salon that Richard had picked for her as he was also preparing himself at the mansion. After he changed, he will be taking Maya from the salon to the Venue.

Richard looked dashingly handsome wearing a classic tux, ( 2 button side vented coat) and a flat front pants that suits him really well. He would seemingly to entice each and every woman na makaka halo-bilo nya… He is now going to the Salon to fetch Maya. He didn’t know why but he was eager to see her…

Manang Fe approached him…

“Ricardo…aalis ka na ba para sunduin ang escort mo?”

“Yes Manang, her name is Maya, Don’t worry Manang, Ipapa kilala ko po sya sa inyo one of these days…”

“Mabuti na man kung ganoon, ngayon pa lang sabik na akong makilala sya… Ricardo….Masaya ako at Maligaya ka ngayon…Kung si Maya man ang dahilan nyan, ngayon pa lang nag papasalamat na ako sa kanya…”

“Thank You Manang” with that He hugs Manang Fe and kissed her forehead…

While at the corner….

“Pssst…Doris, halika… Tingnan mo oh.. Ang gwapo gwapo ni Ser… Nakaka loka!”

“Oo nga Day, pakiramdam ko matatanggal yung bra ko sa kagwapohan nya…”

“Bra talaga Doris? Sa dinami- dami ng pwedeng matanggal sayo yung bra pa talaga?!”

“Eh, Alangan naman yung panty…”

“Hoy Doris! Yung bibig mo…nakaka loka ka… May pa bra-bra at panty ka pang nalalaman dyan… hinaan mo yung boses mo kung ayaw mong ma tanggal yung Bangs mo!”

“Bakit na man mata- tanggal yung bangs ko? Ano yun tipus? “

“Sandali, nga Doris… Tingnan mo oh, ang swerte naman ni Manang Fe, sana ako rin i- hug at i kiss ni Ser…”

“Oo nga day, parang mag ina lang sila oh…na kaka touch naman…Awww”

————

Richard arrived at the salon and settled himself in a couch as he waits for Maya…a minute later, the stylist now went out to meet him with Maya next to her…

“Good evening Sir, Your date is ready” She smiled as she presented Maya to him…

Richard’s eyes glued on her, he stared at her for a moment and travelled his eyes from her face down to her neck and her bare shoulders. She looks so gorgeous and elegant in a black classy sleeveless form fitting gown, exposing some of her smooth skin in front and her back, while a slit also showed her flawless legs.

“Wow”… Richard was trying to conjure the right words to come out but it was all he could say…

———–

They were at the venue and as they entered, all eyes were looking at them, of course everyone recognized Richard, no wonder why…which made Maya feel uneasy, as someone’s eyes might also recognize her. She is conscious to the guests in the area…

They were now seated in a reserved table for them. Joined in the table is Richard’s Tito Alfonso, Atty. Ryan Molina with his partner, and 4 other VIP’s. Richard introduced Maya to them as his special friend. And Maya greeted them back warmly.

Maya was observing the place for any familiar faces, and so far wala pa naman syang nakikita. Which is a good thing, she can now breathe easily.

A lot of people keep on approaching Richard and shake hands with him, he even introduce Maya to them, which somehow makes her feel flattered.

They were now indulging their food and drinks but everyone seems quite serious so Ryan breaks in…

“Alam mo ba Maya that Richard intends to get marry within this year, sabi ko kasi tigang na sya kaya kailangan na nyang mag asawa”

Everyone laughs at Ryan except for Maya & Richard who looked awkwardly at each other, Gustong batukan ni Richard si Ryan if only he’s nearer, pero tinawanan na lang nila ito…His Tito Alfonso joined in…

“You don’t have to worry Maya, Masipag naman yang si Richard; I’m sure he still has a lot to offer” then winked at her… and everyone continued with the laughter…

Richard felt embarrassed, so is Maya who is already blushing, actually they are both blushing…

“Ay hindi naman po ka—“Maya didn’t finish what she’s about to say because Richard interrupted her…

“Of course Tito, Marami pa naman akong nakatagong…bala…” Then looks at Maya shyly, indicating her to just go with the flow…

Then Alfonso went serious with the conversation…

“Richard, I heard that you closed the deal with the DRVF Corporation?”

Natigilan si Maya upon hearing about Company’s name..

“Yes, Tito we have finalized the arrangement, and by next week or so, we will be signing the contract, but for now we’re still coordinating with the schedule, as one of the officers daw po kasi is not in full health and since he’s is the one who approved of this project on their part, we need him to be present along with his other partners at the contract signing kaya medyo tentative pa yung date.”

Maya listened intently to the conversation, and when she heard something about someone being sick, she felt nervous, it could be his father…Paano kung si Papa nga? Baka nag kasakit sya sa sobrang pag aalala sa akin… she thought…

“Really? I didn’t know about that…” said Alfonso.

“Actually Tito, it was James Ventura who informed me during the meeting, he is Mr. Vergilio’s son, according to him, he will be taking over the company’s affairs for the mean time.”

“Well, I know some of the officers in that company, before you, ako yung nag a-asekaso ng deal na yan sa kanila, pero sino daw yung nag kasakit?”

“I’m not really sure Tito but as far as I remember, James mentioned “Dela Rosa”… Yes, I remember it now kasi parehas sila ng surname ni Maya… Right Maya?”

Tuala si Maya…hindi sya naka pag react sa sinabi ni Richard…

“Maya?”

“ah oo, nag..nagka taong parehas kami…”

“ Oh That’s sad, I really hope he gets well soon…”

Hindi alam ni Maya kung ano ang mararamdaman nya hearing all that, she couldn’t take it any longer and she’s now on the brink of crying, pero bago pa man sya maiyak, she excused herself and hurriedly went to the Ladies’Room.

———-

While in the rest room, Maya couldn’t fight the tears anymore, she was guilty and galit sya sa sarili nya, she thinks it’s her fault kung totoo mang nagkasakit ang papa nya. She has to go back… kailangan ako ni Papa..

————

The emcee acknowledged the major benefactors in the event, one of them is Richard and they are requested to come up on the podium for a picture taking, Richard keeps on refusing but everyone urged him to go…

Maya now got out of the Rest room and back to their table, her eyes are searching for Richard, she found him shaking his hand and talking to a guy of about Richard’s height, and who is also good looking…

When they’re finish, Richard went back to her…

“Hey” He approached Maya sweetly…

“You know what, that’s the guy we’ve had made a deal with, that’s JAMES VENTURA, the one we were talking about earlier—“

Richard stopped when he sees Maya’s reaction, she was a bit frail, and she’s getting pale…

“Maya are you okay?”

With all the things she heard, she doesn’t know what to feel anymore, the beating of her heart was raising, deafening her that she didn’t hear the rest of what Richard was saying, she is sweating already.

“R-Richard, pwede mo na ba akong ihatid pauwi?”

Richard didn’t know why Maya looked frail all of a sudden…

“Okay Maya, mag paalam muna tayo kina Tito bago kita iuwi…”

———-

They were in the car, Maya was quiet the whole time and Richard didn’t know how to approach her, but he’s constantly glancing at her…until they arrived at the boarding house.

It was almost midnight, and Richard walks her inside…

Richard turns to her so that they could face each other… He put his hands on her shoulders…

“Maya, what’s happening to you? May masakit ba sayo? Or did I say something wrong? Tell me?”

Maya is just silent, she’s already weeping…

“Why are you crying?” still no reply from Maya… Instead Maya leaned her head forward to his chest as she continues to weep…Although confused, Richard thought she needs comfort, so he embraced her, patting her back gently… their body were pressed up against each other for a minute and slowly Maya breaks away from the hug, she looks up to Richard who is staring at her…

With stillness reigning all over, they could only hear their own heart beats, and their restraint breathing…

“Maya” He said softly…

Richard wiped her tears with his thumb and gently caressed her smooth face, then gently lowered down his hand to her neck. He slowly moved his other hand to her back with eyes still locked up at each other. Then slowly his eyes travelled to her lips… He gulped, and then looks back at her eyes as if asking for a permission…then Maya closed her eyes… He leans down to kiss her cheeks, and then finally claim her lips…

To be continued…

———–

Sneak peek…

“Si Maya ang Anak ni Mr. Arturo Dela Rosa?”

——–

“All these time Maya, pina pa ikot mo lang ako!”

“Richard hindi yun ganun”

“Then what? Tell me…alin doon ang totoo Maya… because honestly, I don’t believe you anymore!”

——-

“James is a nice guy Maya, and I’d still want him for you…”

——-

“So you are marrying James… “

“Great!”

“Pinatunayan mo lang that you’re just one immature runaway brat na mag so-swoon kaagad sa kahit na sinong lalaking lalapit sa kanya!”

——–

“I’m sorry Sir, pero hindi pwedeng makasal si Maya sa iba!?”

“And why not?”

“Dahil may nangyari sa amin!

——-

“Ang lakas ng loob mong sabihin yun sa’kin ng harapan”

——-

Boom boom boom! Bitin ba?
