Previously…

Nagpunta na sa kwarto sina Maya at Richard. Pagpasok ni Maya at Richard hinalikan sya agad ni Richard.

“I missed you.” Richard said.

“I missed you too.” Maya said. “Thank you.”

“For what?”

“For accepting the baby.”

“We will continue your Chemo. After you give birth to our angel.”

“Ofcourse Chard.” Maya said. “Tulog na tayo, antok na antok na ko.”

“Wait! Anong sabi ng doctor kanina?”

“Eto oh.” Nilabas ni Maya ang picture ng ultrasound nya.

“Hello Little Angel! Daddy loves you so much.” Richard said while holding the picture.

“Ang sweet naman ng mag’ama ko.” Maya said. “Chard, matulog na tayo.”

“Sige Mommy, goodnight Little Angel.” Richard kissed her forehead and her tummy.

“Goodnight Daddy!”

Chapter 10

Maaga na naman nagising si Maya, nakita nya si Richard sa tabi nya na mahimbing pa ang tulog. Tinitigan nya lang ito. Hinawakan ni Maya ang mga pilikmata ni Richard.

“Ang haba talaga ng pilikmata mo. Sana mamana ng anak natin yan.” Maya said.

“Oo naman, lahat naman ng pilikmaya ng anak natin, sa akin nagmana.” Richard said.

“Ano ka ba naman Chard! Nakakagulat ka!”

“Kanina pa ako gising, alam kong nakatitig ka sa akin.” Richard said. “Mrs. Lim, you’re blushing.”

“Charddd! Bahala ka dyan. Bababa na ako.” Maya stood up.

“I was just joking Maya!”

“Bala ka!” Maya left the room.

Richard laughed. “Nakakatawa ka talaga Maya.”

After 5months…

“Nako Day! Malapit ka na manganak!” Sabel said.

“Ano ka ba Sabel! 6 months pa lang ako. 3 months pa.”

“Kahti na Day! Malapit na yun.”

__________________________________________

Nagalmusal na sila Maya. Habang kumakain, ang saya saya nila. Nakakaramdam lang si Maya ng konting sakit ng ulo pero hindi naman na ganoon kagrabe. Lagi syang nagpapacheck up sa doctor nya. Para mabantayan ang health nung baby nya at pati sya.

“Maya, pupunta tayo doctor mo later.” Richard said.

“I know Hon. I’m so excited.” Maya said.

“Oh my gee Mommy! Hindi ba ngayon nyo na malalaman ang gender ng baby?”

“Yes, Nikki. Kaya nga ako excited.”

“Can we come?” Luke asked. “Excited na din kasi kami.”

“Dito na lang kayo. Babalik kami tas pupunta tayo ng mall.”

“Oh my gee! I’m sure na girl yan!”

“Nikki! Boy yan.”

They all laughed.

Habang naghihintay sila ng turn nila, si Richard kinakabahan at parang first time nya ito.

“Richard! Parang first time. Kung kabahan ka naman.”

“Eh Maya, syempre excited din ako.”

“Ano mas gusto mo? Girl o Boy?”

“Kahit ano Maya, basta healthy.” Richard kissed her forehead.

“Mr. and Mrs. Lim. Kayo na po.”

“Goodmorning Mr. and Mrs. Lim!” Dra. Sanchez said. “Higa ka na dito Mrs. Lim. Para masimulan na natin ang ultrasound.”

“Sige po Dra.” Maya said.

“Excited na ba kayo Mr. and Mrs. Lim?”

“Oo naman Dra. Lalo na tong si Chard. Kanina pa yan.”

“Dra, Hindi lang ako. Pati ang mga bata.” Richard said.

Richard held Maya’s hand. “I love you.”

“I love you too Chard.”

“Mr. and Mrs. Lim. Congrats! It’s a baby girl!”

“Thank you po Doc.” Richard and Maya said in unison.

Umuwi na sina Maya at Richard sa bahay. Pagkapasok nila ng bahay,  sinalubong agad sila ng mga bata.

“Oh my gee Mommy! Girl or Boy?” Nikki said.

“Nikki, I’m confident enough na it’s a boy.” Luke said.

“I’m more confident Kuya. It’s a girl.”

“Luke, tama si Nikki. It’s a girl.” Maya said.

“See?! Kuya! I won!” Nikki said.

“Osige na Kids, magprepare na kayo at pupunta tayo ng mall.” Richard said.

___________________________________

Nagpunta na sila Mall, para mamili ng gamit ng baby. Habang naglalakad sila sa mall, nakaramdam ng matinding sakit ng ulo si Maya pero  hindi nya pinansin ito.

“Maya, are you okay? You look pale.”  Richard said.

“I’m okay Chard. Don’t need to worry.” Maya said.

“Are you done Kids? Umuwi na tayo.” Richard said.

“Yes, Dad!” The kids said in unison.

___________________________________

Nakauwi na sila Maya. Tumitindi ang sakit ng ulo ni Maya na para bang binibiyak ang sakit ng ulo nya. Gusto na nya uminom ng gamot, pero bawal. Papasok na dapat sya sa kwarto nila, kumapit sya sa door knob.

“Richard…”

Buti na lang mabilis si Richard at nasalo nya agad si Maya.

“Maya! Wake up!” Richard said. “Joma! Yung sasakyan!”

“Oh my gee Mommy!!” Nikki said.

______________________________________

Nasa hospital si Luke at Richard. Palakad lakad ang Daddy nya.

“Ano na kayang nangyari kay Maya?” Richard said.

“Dad, magiging okay lang si Mommy.” Luke said.

Ring.. Ring.. Ring.. Nikki was calling.

“Hello Niks.” Luke said.

“Kuya! Kamusta si Mommy?”

“Wala pa, hindi pa lumalabas ang doctor.”

“Ano na kayang nangyari? Kuya…” Nikki cried.

“Niks, wag ka ngang ganyan. Patulugin mo na muna sila Mayumi.”

“Yes, Kuya. Call me agad kung ano sabi ng Doctor. Please Kuya.”

“Yes, Niks. I will do that.”

Lumabas na si Dr. Francisco mula sa emergency room. Lumapit agad sina Richard at Luke.

“Doc, how’s my wife?” Richard said.

“Mr. Lim, Lumalala na ang sakit ni Mrs. Lim. Kinukuha na kasi ng baby ang nutrition na para kay Maya. Uulit at uulit ang ganitong pangyayari Mr. Lim.”

“Ano ba pwedeng gawin Doc?”

“Wala tayong gagawin Mr. Lim. Wala akong pwedeng ipainom kay Maya kasi makakaapekto ito sa bata. Kailangan lang natin bantayan si Maya palagi. Hanggang sa manganak sya.”

“Sige Doc, thankyou.”

_____________________________________________

Nakauwi na sila Maya at Richard sa bahay.

“Maya, you need to rest. Sabi ni Dr.”

“Yes, I will.”

“Papasok lang ako sa office and please kung may kailangan ka, wag ka ng bumaba. Tumawag ka na lang sa phone sa baba.”

“Sige po Mr. Lim. Pumasok ka na. I love you.”

“I love you too Mrs. Lim.”

____________________________________________

After 3months…

Hindi naman na gaano nakakaramdam si Maya ng sakit ng ulo. Pa’minsan minsan na lang. Kabuwanan na nya kaya excited na silang lahat pero si Richard, hindi. Kasi anytime pwedeng mawala sa kanya si Maya. Hindi nya kaya.

Habang natutulog sila, biglang sumakit ang tyan ni Maya. Ginising ni Maya si Richard.

“Chard!”

“Hmm?”

“Manganganak na ako.” Maya said. “Masakit na!”

“5 more minutes Maya.”

“5 more minutes?! 5 minutes na lang manganganak na ako!!” Maya said. “Ricardoooooo!!!”

“What?” Richard said.

“Manganganak na ako!!!!!” Maya shouted.

“Ano?!” Richard said and he stood up.

“Manganganak na ako!” Maya said. “Ahhhhhhhhhh!!” Maya shouted.

___________________________________

Nasa labor room na sila Maya at Richard. Kasama ni Richard sina Luke at Nikki.

“Mr. Lim, I don’t  think kakayanin ni Mrs. Lim ang sakit ng panganganak. Baka bigla syang sumuko.”

“What?! Gawin nyo ang lahat! Para parehas silang maligtas! Damn Doc!”

“Dad, Kalma ka lang.” Luke said.

“Mr. Lim. Tina’try po namin ang lahat. Pero you need to choose. Si Mrs. Lim o ang bata?”
