Richard heaved a sigh as he broke their kiss and untangled his fingers from her hair. His hunger
for her unsatiated with the passionate kiss they just shared but he would have to be content
with that for now because he doesn’t want to rush Maya. He knew she’s too young for him.
He doesn’t want her to feel pressured to keep up with the way he would’ve wanted things
between them. He rested his forehead on Maya’s. He can feel her disappointment that the kiss
has ended as she drew deep breaths to calm her nerves. He can still hear the pounding of her
heart as she held on to his forearms for balance. She’s afraid her knees would give way with the
intensity of Sir Chief’s kiss.
He kissed her forehead gently, his eyes softly searching her face. “Are you okay?”
She buried her face in his neck, hiding her embarrassment. Sir Chief chuckled, caressing
her back. “You just have to get used to it.”
“Saan?” her words were mumbled from Sir Chief’s neck.
“Maya,” She felt his sudden stiffening. “Don’t do that.”
“Ang alin?” Maya didn’t remove her face from Sir Chief’s neck, instead, she teased him
by planting small kisses on the side of his neck as she spoke, “Ganito?”
Maya was unaware of her effects on Richard as he tried to muster all self-control not to sweep
her off her feet and marched to her room. He stood still and held his breath.
Maya continued to playfully nuzzle his neck, “Mmmnnn… ang bango!”
“Maya! If you don’t stop what you’re doing now, I won’t be responsible for what might
happen next.” He warned and his voice caught Maya’s attention that she suddenly froze.
She raised her head and looked at him wide-eyed with confusion. Richard gently
removed himself away from her, holding her at bay. She’s too innocent to know what I’m
talking about or what I’m capable of doing at this state. Richard thought to himself.
“Maya, just behave, okay? Please. You don’t know what you do to me.”
“Kinikilig ka rin ba, Ser Chief?” she’s still in that teasing mode.
Richard smiled sardonically, “Yes. And more. Believe me, you wouldn’t want to know.”
Napapailing na dagdag nito.
He took this time to regain his composure and focus on his next plan. When he spoke
again, his cool calculated self was back. “I have to be going.” He glanced at his watch. “Maya,
how do you feel about telling the kids about us?” he added as an afterthought.
“Ha?” she was caught off-guard with the question. She bit her lower lip, beginning to
worry. “Ano’ng sasabihin mo sa kanila?”
“Oo, na tayo na. ‘Di ba tayo na? Richard asked inquiringly.
“Oo, pero…” Maya began to panic. Biglang ang daming tanong sa isip niya. Ano ang
magiging reaksiyon ng mga bata? Matanggap kaya nila ako? Pa’no kung hindi? Handa na
Richard noticed Maya’s sudden change of mood. She was too transparent to hide her
anxiousness. He placed his hands on her shoulders to assure her, “Maya, kalma lang. Don’t get
ahead of yourself. I can give you time until you’re ready but I think it would be best to tell the
kids as early as now.”
“Ser Chief, baka hindi pa kami handa pare-pareho.”
“Sooner or later, baka mahalata rin nila. Mas mabuti na ‘yung malaman nila ng maaga
kesa malaman pa nila sa iba. If Nikki finds out that I left Brenda alone at the restaurant, she’ll
be very curious and I don’t want her finding out from anyone but us.”
“Natatakot ako.” She raised her hands to her lips, her habit when feeling agitated.
“Don’t be. I’m here for you.” Richard hugged her tightly. “I’ll tell the kids when I get
She extracted herself from his embrace so she could see his face. “Ser Chief, sasama ko
sa ‘yo. Gusto ko ring makapagpaliwanag sa kanila.”
“Maya, I think it would be best if I talk to them alone first. Magpahinga ka na muna, I’m
sure pagod ka sa biyahe.”
Maya would’ve uttered another protest but she could see from Ser Chief’s face that he’s
already made up his mind and arguing with him would not take her anywhere.
She lets out a sigh, “Tawagan mo ‘ko agad pagkatapos mo silang makausap ha?”
“Yes. I love you.” He gave her another brief hug and kissed her in the forehead. He
dared not kiss her on the lips again for fear of not making it to the door.
“I love you, too.” Richard held her hand as they walked toward the direction of the door.
“Wag mo na ‘kong ihatid sa baba.” Sir Chief told her at the doorstep, gave her a curt nod
then turned and walked away.
Maya closed the door behind her as soon as Ser Chief was out of sight. She leaned to it, closed
her eyes and whispered a prayer.
