Right after their conversation with their dad, Nikki seems bothered. She has been in deep thought since she entered her room.
Nikki to herself: How would it be a surprise kaya e Ate Maya needs to pack her clothes and her other things pa for their three day tripsa cruise. Then she would know na! Hindi na surprise! G-R-R-R! How would this plan work? I have to help dad make this a surprise for Ate Maya.
Then she remembered Maya’s roommate, Emman.
Nikki: Oh my gee! I think I know na the solution to my problem!
Then she went to her dad’s office to check if he’s there. She found her dad in his home office. Richard was busy doing something in his laptop.
Richard: Niks? Bakitgisingka pa? You have school tomorrow.
Nikki: It’s about your surprise for Ate Maya.
Richard: Hmm. What about it?
Nikki: Di ba dad, you’ll be on the cruise for three days e how would we bring Ate Maya’s clothes and other things there without her knowing? Di banga you said you want to surprise her?
Richard: Now that you said it, how will we be able to do that, Niks?
Nikki: That’s why I came to you, dad. I already have a solution for this dilemma.
Richard: Really, Niks? What is it?
Nikki: I was thinking nasiEmmannalangpoyungbahala mag-ayosng things ni Ate Maya for the trip. He can do it when Ate Maya is away. Dad, can I help Emmy arrange Ate Maya’s things? I really reallywanna help.
Richard: Okay. But let’s coordinate muna with Emman. Let’s plan this carefully. We wouldn’t want it namakahalatasa’tinsi Maya.
Nikki: Yes, dad! Oh my gee! I’m really super excited na for this! Do you have na the details of your destination, dad?
Richard: Yes, I looked it up already. Wait, I’ll show you the details on my laptop.
Richard opened a website showing the cruise and its destination. He showed it to Nikki.
Nikki: Oh my gee! Dad! Everything here is perfect! Wait lang, dad ha. Can I borrow your laptop for a while? I would just take down the details on my phone’s notes paramakahanap din kami ni Emmy ng perfect outfits for Ate Maya patinarin the things that she would need.
Richard: Take your time, Niks.
Mataposmagtake down ng notes sa phone niyasi Nikki…
Nikki: Thankie dad! I’m done na. Dad, let’s call Emmy na. I think he’s still awake at this time pa naman e. Please, daddy. I won’t be able to sleep hanggang di komasabikay Emmy ‘to.
Richard: Okay, let me talk to him too.
Nikki: Okay, dad. I’ll just put him on speaker phone (loudspeaker on some devices).
On the other hand, sa condo niEmman…
Emman to himself: Grabesi roomie, borlogsagad. Palibhasa, galingsa flight. I’ll just go to my room nangalangparamakapag beauty rest narinanglola mo.
NasakwartonasiEmman when his phone rang…
Emman to himself: Anongorasna? Bakit kaya napatawagsi Nikki girl? Is this about Mallows?
