(10 months later..)

 

Richard’s in the veranda drinking his coffee waiting for his parents because he wants to tell something.

 

“Richard, son.. Why aren’t you in the office? Diba marami kang gagawin doon?”

 

“Yes, Ma. But I want to talk to you. I want to tell something.”

 

“What is it, son?”

 

“Nothing much, Pa. I know na mag-iisang taon pa lang kami ni Maya. And..”

 

“And.. What?” Esmeralda asked.

 

“..And I want to spend the rest of my life with her. I want to marry Maya.”

 

(shocked)

“Oh, Richard.. –”

 

“Alam ko na parang mabilis ang lahat. But I’m sure of this, Ma. I’m not like Maya. You know that I’m a middle-aged man. I want to be with her G single day. Everytime I see her, she makes me happy, and she makes me special. Maya accepted me wholeheartedly even though I have three kids, accepted me for who I am and what I am. She changed me the way I see things before. I can see myself living here with her and the kids. I’ve never been this much happy. Ma, Pa.. I LOVE MAYA very much, and you know that. And I want her to be my wife.”

 

(Esmeralda starts to cry)

 

“Ma, why are you crying?”

 

“I’m just so happy for you, hijo. You finally found the one. And I am happy for you and Maya.”

 

“I agree with your mother. You are very lucky to have her. I’m happy for the both of you. Don’t make her cry, hijo.”

 

“Yes, Pa. Thank you.”

 

“So, when are you going to propose to Maya?”

 

“Actually, Ma. I have a plan. But I don’t if it’ll work out..”

 

“Whatever the plan is, let us know, okay?”

 

“Sure, Ma. Ahm.. Can you do me a favor?”

 

“What is it, Richard?”, asked his dad.

 

“Can we go to San Nicolas? Just the three of us. I want you to meet Maya’s family. Gusto ko na rin po sanang mamanhikan sa pamilya niya.”

 

“Alam ba ni Maya ‘to?”

 

“No, Pa. I want all of this to be a surprise.”

 

“Okay. Kelan ang alis natin?”

 

“Maybe, tomorrow. As soon as possible. I’ll call Liza later para makapagpa-book na ko ng flight, at para makapunta tayo agad. (then, Richard hugs his parents) Ma, Pa.. Thank you.”

 

**

 

(in his home office.. Richard calls Liza.)

 

“Liza,”

 

“Yes, sir. Is there a problem?”

 

“No. Just book me a flight for three to San Nicolas as soon as possible.”

 

“Sino po ang kasama niyo, sir?”

 

“Sina Mama at Papa.”

 

“Okay, sir. I’ll just e-mail you your flight schedule once I got it.”

 

“Thanks, Liza.”

 

“Okay, sir. Bye.”

 

**

 

(San Nicolas. chibugan.)

 

Bigla na lang napangiti si Kute habang nag-aayos sa chibugan. Nakita ‘to ni Nanay Teresita kaya nagtanong ito kay Kute.

 

“Anak. Parang ang saya saya mo ngayon ah.”

 

“Naaalala ko lang po si Maya, ‘Nay. Masaya lang ako para sa kanya kasi natupad na niya yung mga pangarap niya, tapos alam mo yun, ‘Nay.. May nagmamahal sa kanya. Okay na rin si Maya sa mga magulang ni Ser Richard.”

 

“Oo nga, anak. Napakasaya siguro ng kapatid mo ngayon.”

 

“May naisip lang ako, ‘Nay. Pa’no kung magpunta dito sila Sir Richard?”

 

“Ha?”

 

“Ibig sabihin, ‘Nay. Paano kung magpunta dito sila Sir Richard para mamanhikan? Papayag kayo?”

 

(biglang napaisip si Aling Teresita sa sinabi ni Kute..)

 

**

 

(home office.)

 

..habang magkausap sina Richard at Raffi sa Skype.

 

“Raffi. Did I disturb you?”

 

“No, not at all. Actually, wala naman akong ginagawa. So, what’s the latest? Did I miss anything?”

 

“Hmmm.. Wala naman. Can you go here in the Philippines? Just a short vacation..”

 

“Why? Is there a problem?”

 

“I need your help,”

(then, he smiles..)

 

“I know that smile, Richard. ๐Ÿ™‚ Does this have to do with Maya?”

 

“Yes. :)”

 

“Wait, Richard. I think I know what you want to tell me. Are you going to propose to Maya?”

 

(Richard smiles..)

 

“I knew it! I’m so happy for you! ๐Ÿ™‚ So, kelan ka mamamanhikan?”

 

“Tomorrow. Kasama ko sila Mama at Papa sa San Nicolas.”

 

“Does the kids know about this?”

 

“Well, hindi pa. Pagdating mo na lang dito, then I’ll tell them.”

 

“Okay. I’ll book a flight right away.”

 

“Just let me know para mapasundo agad kita kay Joma.”

 

“Good luck tomorrow, then. See you soon! :)”

 

“Bye, Raffi. Thank you.”

 

**

 

(kinabukasan.. sa San Nicolas.)

 

Nag-uusap sila Donya Esmeralda, Don Roberto at Richard sa loob ng kotse habang papunta sila kila Nanay Teresita.

 

“..May business sila?” Esmeralda asked.

 

“Yes. Dati, souvenir shop lang po. Pero chibugan na yung business nila ngayon.”

 

“Mababait naman ba sila?”

 

“Ofcourse, Ma. In fact, sa kanila nga kami nagcelebrate ng New Year last year.”

 

“Really? Wait. Bakit doon kayo nagcelebrate ng New Year?”

 

“Ganito kasi yun, Ma. That time kasi, Maya went home dito sa San Nicolas because of me. Nasigawan ko kasi siya noong nasa Summit kami. I got jealous kasi kausap niya si James. But I didn’t know it yet na I have feelings for her. I only realized it nung nag-prom sila Nikki and Luke. Ayun, nagalit siya. So, she decided na umuwi ng San Nicolas. Then, I followed her. Kasama ko yung mga bata. But the kids didn’t know that time na nag-away kami. I just said na may ‘business trip’ kaya nagpunta kami sa San Nicolas. Then, Aling Teresita insisted na doon na lang kami mag-New Year.”

 

“What did you do para magkabati kayo?”, Roberto asked.

 

“Hinarana ko siya. Well, not actually ‘hinarana’. Si Jeff, yung tatay ni Cho, inasar si Kute. So, naisip niya na haranahin si Kute. Then, he asked me to join at kumanta.”

 

“..And you did sing, hijo?”

 

“Yes, ma. Then I said sorry. That’s it.”

 

(Esmeralda laughs)

“I can’t believe you did that, Ricki. But that’s a sweet thing.”

 

“You know, son. Baka pwede mo rin siyang haranahin when you propose to her. I’m sure, she’ll be so happy.”

 

“Hmmm.. Good suggestion, Pa. ๐Ÿ™‚ Andito na tayo.”

 

~~

 

(chibugan)

 

lumabas si Lino sa chibugan.

 

“Kute, tignan mo oh. Ang ganda ng sasakyan.”

 

“Saan? (lumabas..) Nay!!!”

 

“Bakit anak?”

 

“Mukhang may bisita tayo..”

 

~~

 

(dumating na sila Richard sa chibugan. lumabas sina Roberto at Esmeralda.)

 

“Magandang umaga po. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ano po ba’ng maitutulong ko sa inyo?”

 

“Ikaw ba si Teresita?”, Esmeralda asked.

 

“Ako nga po..”

 

“Magandang umaga po, Aling Teresita, Kute..”

 

“Richard, naparito ka.”

 

“Aling Teresita, Kute.. This is my parents. Ma, Pa.. This is Aling Teresita, nanay po ni Maya. And si Kute, yung kapatid niya.”

 

“Ay, magandang umaga po. Kayo po pala ang mga magulang ni Sir Richard.” Kute said.

 

“Aling Teresita, can we talk to you?”

 

“Sige, Richard. Doon po tayo sa bahay namin. Tara po sa itaas. Kute, magtimpla ka ng juice tapos sumunod ka agad sa taas.”

 

“Opo, ‘Nay.”

 

Inalalayan ni Nanay Teresita sila Donya Esmeralda, Don Roberto at Richard sa bahay nila. Agad din namang nakasunod si Kute.

 

“Upo na po tayo. Juice po. Ahh, Richard.. Ano ba yung gusto mong pag-usapan? May problema ba kayo ni Maya?”

 

“Wala naman po. But it’s about Maya kaya po nandito kami.”

 

(nagkatinginan sina Kute at Nanay Teresita)

 

“Ano yung tungkol kay Maya, Richard?”

 

(natahimik saglit si Richard. tapos..)

 

“Aling Teresita, it’s.. (natahimik saglit..) Pwede ko po ba’ng hingin ang kamay ni Maya sa inyo? I want to marry your daughter.”

 

(biglang naiyak si Nanay Teresita..)

“Richard,”

 

“I know this seems fast. It’s been almost a year, but I really want to marry your daughter. I want to spend the rest of my life with her. Will you let me, Aling Teresita?”

 

“Teresita.. Nakita din namin kung gaano kabuti si Maya sa kanya, sa mga anak niya, pati na din sa amin.” Esmeralda added.

 

“I know that I’m rude to Maya before because I don’t know her that much yet, and that’s my mistake. She proved me wrong. Now that I must say that they really love each other.” Roberto said.

 

Nanay Teresita hugged Richard while crying, then she said..

 

“Oo naman, Richard! Payag ako. Napakasaya ko ngayon.. At masayang masaya ako para sa inyo ng anak ko. Masasabi ko talagang mahal na mahal mo si Maya.”

 

“Thank you, Aling Teresita. I promise that I’ll love her forever.”

 

“Ah, Sir Richard.. Yung bilin ko po. :D”

 

“Of course, Kute. Hindi ko nakakalimutan yun.”

 

“Finally! Balae.. :D”, Esmeralda said, then hugged Nanay Teresita.

 

“And I must say.. Maganda ang pagpapalaki mo kay Maya,” Roberto added.

 

“Salamat po. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ah, Richard.. Nagpropose ka na ba kay Maya?”

 

“Hindi pa po,”

 

“May naisip na po ba kayo, Sir Richard?”

 

“Meron na, Kute. But I need all of your help. I’ll tell you soon. Babalik naman kami dito sa San Nicolas with the whole family..”

 

**

 

(after 2 days, dumating na si Raffi galing States. Kasama niyang kumain ng hapunan ang mga bata, pati na rin sila Richard, Donya Esmeralda at Don Roberto.ย  Patapos na silang kumain ng may dumating na bisita..)

 

“Manang Fe, can you see who’s outside?”

 

“O sige, Ricardo. Teka — ”

 

“Manang, kami na lang ho ni Doris ang titingin kung sino po yung nasa labas. :)”

 

(..at dali-dali naman silang lumabas.)

 

“Sabel, sa tingin mo, sino kaya yung bisita ni Ser?”

 

“Bakit kasi ‘di na lang natin buksan ung pinto?”

 

“Tao po!..”

 

“Teka, Sabel. Parang alam ko kung kaninong boses yun ah.. Si..”

 

Pagbukas ng pinto..

 

“Si Emman! :D” sigaw ng dalawa, sabay yakap dito.

 

“Hi!! Namiss ko kayo! :)”

 

“Kami din, noh. Eh, teka. Ba’t napadalaw ka?”

 

“Kasi, Sabel, tinawagan ako ni Mr. Lim.”

 

“Doris, Sabel, si Emman na ba yan?” tanong ni Manang Fe.

 

“Opo,” sagot ng dalawa.

 

Agad na silang pumasok sa bahay at dumiretso sa dining room.

 

“Hi Mr. Lim, Luke, Nikki girl, Abby, Manang Fe, at.. Kuya Joma. :)”

 

“Have a seat, Emman.” Richard said.

 

“Have you eaten na ba, Kuya Emman?”

 

“Hindi pa, Nikki girl eh.”

 

“Perfect! Join us. :)”

 

“Thanks, Nikki.. Ah, Sir Richard, bakit niyo po pala ako pinapunta dito?”

 

“Can we finish our food first? Then I’ll tell everything.”

 

“Kasama din po ba kami diyan, dad?”

 

“Yes, Luke. Pati kayong lahat. I need all of your help.”

 

Pagkatapos, napatingin ang lahat kay Richard.

 

(after eating dinner, everybody went to the sala.)

 

“..So, dad. Is there something na gusto niyo pong sabihin?”

 

“Yes, Luke.”

 

“What’s that, dad?”, Nikki asked.

 

“I’m going to propose to Maya.”

 

(everybody smiles)

 

“Really, daddy? YEHEY! :D” Abby said.

 

“Wow, dad! Congrats po.” Luke added.

 

“Oh my pink gosh! Naku, Sir Richard. Siguradong matutuwa si Maya nito.”

 

“But Emman, don’t tell this to Maya. I want to surprise her.”

 

“Opo, sir.”

 

“Saan mo po balak magpropose, dad?”

 

“Since you asked that, Luke. Gusto ko sana na sa San Nicolas magpropose. Kung kakayanin, gusto ko din sana na doon gawin yung kasal.”

 

“Kasama kami, dad?”

 

“Yes, baby. All of us. :)”

 

“Ser Richard, kami din po ba nila Manang Fe, kasama?”

 

“Yes, Doris. Lahat.”

 

“Sabel! Narinig mo yun? Kasama daw tayo. Makakapunta na din tayo sa San Nicolas!”

 

“Oo nga, Doris! :D”

 

“But dad, what are you going to do to propose to Ate Maya?”, Nikki asked.

 

“That’s why I need your help, guys.”

 

“Son, remember what I suggested last time? Haranahin mo si Maya.”

 

“That’s a great idea, Tito Roberto. :)” Raffi said.

 

“Oo nga, dad. Tama si Lolo. At may naisip na akong kanta na pwede mong ipang-harana.”

 

“Right, kuya! And I have an idea. :)”

 

“What’s that, Nikki?”

 

“Sabi mo diba, dad, na you want to propose and get married sa San Nicolas? Here’s my suggestion..”

 

**

 

(kinabukasan..)

 

Nagpunta si Richard sa Time Airways Office, just in time to see Mr. Ventura.

 

“Mr. Lim, good morning. What can I do for you?”

 

“Good morning, Mr. Ventura. Actually, it’s about Maya and her co-FA’s.”

 

“Let’s talk inside, Mr. Lim.”

 

(inside the office..)

 

“Is there a problem, Mr. Lim?”

 

“Nothing. It’s just.. Can we keep this as a secret?”

 

“Okay, what is it? Tell me.”

 

(after 30 minutes of conversation..)

 

“That’s quite a plan, Mr. Lim. Actually, I was supposed to give Maya a vacation leave. Good thing, you asked me. Ako na lang din ang magsasabi sa mga co-FA’s niya about this.”

 

“Thank you, Mr. Ventura.”

 

“No problem, Mr. Lim. It’s the least I can do.”

 

**

 

(mall)

 

Nagpunta sina Richard, Raffi at ang mga bata sa mall pagkatapos nilang bumili ng gown na isusuot ni Maya. Nakapili na rin ng engagement and wedding rings si Richard. Habang nasa mall sila, tinawagan ni Richard si Maya.

 

~~

 

(Time Airways Office)

 

[Ser Chief โค calling..]

 

“Hi, Ser Chief ko. :)”

 

“Where are you?”

 

“Nasa Time Airways Office ako.. May aasikasuhin lang..”

 

“Can we go out tonight? Just the two of us.”

 

“Sige. Wala naman akong gagawin mamayang gabi eh.”

 

“Susunduin na lang kita sa condo mamaya.”

 

(narinig ni Maya na nag-uusap sina Raffi at ang mga bata)

“Kasama mo yung mga bata?”

 

“Yes. Kasama rin si Raffi. She’s here for a short vacation.”

 

“Okay. Sige. Ingat kayo. I love you!”

 

“I love you more! See you later.”

 

**

 

(Time Airways Office..)

Nagkita sina Mr. Ventura at Maya.

 

“Ms. dela Rosa, good thing you’re here. I was about to call you..”

 

“Bakit po, Mr. Ventura?”

 

“Let’s go to my office first.”

 

“Sige po,”

 

(pagpasok sa office ni Mr. Ventura..)

 

“Have a seat, Ms. dela Rosa. So, what brings you here?”

 

“Ah, sir. Gusto ko po sanang magrequest ng leave kahit mga two weeks lang po. Gusto ko lang po sanang bumisita sa amin sa San Nicolas.”

 

“Speaking of leave.. Kaya sana ipapatawag kita dahil gusto ko na bigyan ka sana ng two week vacation leave. And besides, I heard na sunud-sunod ang mga flights mo recently, that’s why I’ve decided na bigyan ka ng vacation leave.”

 

“Eh sir, sino po muna yung papalit sa’kin?”

 

“Marami tayong mga available FA’s ngayon. So, there’s no need to worry about. Just enjoy your vacation. :)”

 

“Naku, sir. Matutuwa sina Nanay nito! Maraming salamat po. :)”

 

**

 

(restaurant..)

 

Pagkatapos sunduin ni Richard si Maya sa condo, nagpunta agad sila sa restaurant para kumain. Habang kumakain..

 

“..You know, I was thinking na dalhin sina Mama at Papa sa San Nicolas, pati na rin yung mga bata.. Kahit mga two weeks lang bago bumalik sila Mama at Papa sa China. And para makilala rin nila sila Aling Teresita.”

 

“Tamang tama, Ser Chief! Magle-leave ako ng two weeks eh. Balak ko nga din sanang umuwi sa San Nicolas.”

 

“Perfect! Then, we can all go together.”

 

“Kasama din ba sila Manang Fe, Doris, Sabel at Kuya Joma?”

 

“Yes. I’ll tell Liza first thing tomorrow morning para makapag-book na agad ng flight. Para makapunta tayong lahat agad sa San Nicolas.”

 

“Okay, Ser Chief. :)”

 

**

 

(kinabukasan.. Lim Aviation Office.)

 

“Liza?”

 

“Yes, sir? Pinatawag niyo daw po ako.”

 

“Book me flights to San Nicolas immediately.”

 

“Kayo lang po mag-isa, sir?”

 

“No, kasama ko si Maya, yung mga bata, sila Mama and Papa, and also Doris, Sabel, Manang Fe, Joma and Raffi. And book also flights for Emman and Maya’s co-FA’s. Pero I’ll tell you soon.”

 

“Oh, you’re going on a vacation with the whole family? For how long, sir?”

 

“For two weeks. And it’s not just a vacation..”

 

“I sense something, sir. Are you going to propose to Maya? (Richard smiles) I’m right. Congratulations. I’m happy for you, sir. I’ll do it right away. :)”

 

“Thanks, Liza.”

 

“Okay, sir. Excuse me..”

 

**

 

Everybody’s excited to go to San Nicolas. While the others are sleeping, Richard and Luke are talking..

 

“Dad,”

 

“What is it, son? Hinaan mo yung boses mo. Baka magising sila.”

 

“I know the perfect song na pangharana mo kay Ate Maya.”

 

“Can I hear it? (pagkatapos marinig yung kanta..) Luke. It’s the perfect song. I like it. Pero pa’no ko kakantahin yun? Eh babae yung kumanta..”

 

“Ako’ng bahala, Dad. Magpractice tayo pagdating natin sa hotel. Eh teka, Dad. Kelan ka ba magpropose kay Ate Maya?”

 

“I was thinking tomorrow night..”

 

“Sige, Dad. :)”

 

**

 

Marami silang ginawa pagdating nila sa San Nicolas. Magkakakilala na ang bawat pamilya. Namasyal, kumain sa labas, at kung anu-ano pa. Masayang nakapag-bonding ang isa’t-isa. Kinabukasan, naisip ng mga bata na pumunta sa bahay nila Maya.

 

(hotel room)

 

“Daddy, I’m excited. :)”

 

“Me too, baby.”

 

“Kabisado mo na po ba yung kanta, Dad?”

 

“Yes, Luke. Thank you for helping me.”

 

“Oh my geeee! I’m excited na rin. I can’t wait! This is going to be soooo sweet. I better get my camera na. I don’t wanna miss any moment! And Dad,”

 

“What’s that, Nikki?”

 

“We’re really happy for you and Ate Maya. Atleast, may mag-aalaga na po sa inyo. Actually, excited na nga po kami kasi magiging ‘mommy’ na din namin siya soon.. :)”

 

“It’s true, Daddy. :)”, Abby added.

 

“Thank you Luke, Nikki and Abby. I love you.” (then hugs his children)

 

“Ready to go, Dad?”

 

“Yes son.”

 

**

 

(kinagabihan..)

 

Sinalubong nila Maya ang Lim family, pati na rin sila Manang Fe, Doris, Sabel, Joma at Raffi sa chibugan. Palihim na tinawag ni Richard si Kute at sinabi ang plano nito. Pagkatapos, tinawag naman ni Kute si Cho.

 

“Cho! ‘Nak,”

 

“Po?”

 

(bumulong)

“Ganito gagawin mo, Cho. Uutusan kita na kuhanin yung gitara sa kwarto natin. Eto yung cellphone ko. Itago mo. Ilagay mo sa may cabinet. Bumaba ka kaagad ha? Kuha mo?”

 

“Opo, Nanay!”

 

Nagkatinginan ang bawat isa na para bang handa nilang gawin ang surprise nila para kay Maya..

 

“Ate Cris, pwede ko po bang mahiram yung gitara mo?”

 

“Sige, Luke. Ah.. Cho! Anak.”

 

“Po?”

 

“Anak, kuhanin mo nga yung gitara sa kwarto natin. Gustong hiramin ni Luke,”

 

“Sige po. Wait lang po, Kuya Luke. Kuhanin ko lang po.”

 

Agad namang sinunod ni Cho ang utos ng kanyang nanay. Pagbaba ni Cho..

 

“Kuya Luke, eto oh.”

 

“Salamat, Cho.”

 

“Ay, Cho. Nakalimutan ko yung cellphone ko. Pakikuha naman.”

 

“Sige po, Na–”

 

“Cho, ‘wag na. Ako na lang. May kukuhanin din naman ako sa taas eh. Saan ba nakalagay yung cellphone mo?”

 

“Nasa cabinet, bunso. Salamat.”

 

Habang nakaakyat na si Maya sa bahay nila, pumwesto na ang lahat sa may harapan ng hagdan (ng bahay nila Nanay Teresita). Nagulat si Maya pagdating niya sa hagdan. Lahat ay nakatingin sa kanya, habang si Maya naman, nakatingin kina Luke at Richard.

 

“Ano ‘to?”, tanong ni Maya.

 

Then, Luke is starting to play the guitar.

 

~~

 

(the song I was talking about is Can’t Help Myself by Toni Gonzaga. just imagine na kinakanta yan ni Richard. :))

 

Can’t sleep tonight

‘Cause you’re on my mind

I guess I’m in love once again

Gaze at a star

‘Cause that’s what you are

You light up my life once again

 

I’ll take this chance for another romance in my life

‘Cause you’re all that I need

 

I can’t help myself from falling in love

With somebody like you

‘Cause your feelings are true

Can’t help myself from falling in love

For I can’t help myself from falling for you

 

All day I pray that forever you’ll stay

And won’t let our love fade away

Hear what I say whatever comes away

We’ll be together come what may

 

I’ll take this chance for another romance in my life

‘Cause you’re all that I need

 

I can’t help myself from falling in love

With somebody like you

‘Cause your feelings are true

Can’t help myself from falling in love

For I can’t help myself from falling for you

 

I’ve never felt this love

Until you came in my life

 

I can’t help myself from falling in love

With somebody like you

‘Cause your feelings are true

Can’t help myself from falling in love

For I can’t help myself from falling for you

 

~~

 

Natuwa ang lahat sa ginawa nila Luke at Richard. Ngumingiti si Maya habang pababaย  ng hagdan.

 

“Ser Chief, ano ‘to? Bakit — ”

 

“Natataranta ka na naman, Maya. (Richard holds Maya’s hands) ..I don’t know where to start. I want to thank you for everything that you’ve done for me, my kids, and my family. Alam kong nahirapan ka sa umpisa. But you keep on going. Nagtiyaga ka. You didn’t give up that easily. Akala ko noong una, susuko ka na lang agad kay Abby, lalo na sa condition niya before. At habang tumatagal, napamahal ka na sa mga bata.. Sa akin. Your bubbly personality, your positive attitude, everything about you made me love you even more. Thank you for loving me eventhough na ganito ako. Still, you accepted me, my imperfections.. And you loved me even more. I couldn’t ask anything for more. Maya, always remember that I will always love you no matter what..”

 

“Ser Chief..”

 

(Richard kneels down)

“Maya, I want to grow old with you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.. Only if you’ll let me. So, Maya dela Rosa.. (shows the ring) ..WILL YOU MARRY ME?”

 

(nakangiti at nakatinin ang lahat sa kanilang dalawa)

 

“Ser Chief.. Makakatanggi pa ba ako? Eh hindi naman ako mananalo sa’yo.. OO na! OO! :)”

 

Sinuot agad ni Richard ang singsing sa kamay ni Maya. Then, they hugged each other. Everybody’s celebrating ng biglang..

 

“..Umuulan!”, sigaw ni Maya.

 

(sumilong ang lahat)

 

“Daddy! Can we play in the rain? Please?”, Abby asked.

 

“Sige na, Dad. Please?” Luke and Nikki added.

 

“Okay. Fine.”, Richard answered.

 

“Nanay. Sali din po ako!”

 

“Sige, Cho. :)”

 

“Ay teka.. May kulang..”

 

“Sino naman, Maya?” Richard asked.

 

“Edi IKAW! :D”

 

(hinila ni Maya si Richard sa labas. Lumabas na din sa silong sina Luke, Nikki, Abby, Doris, Sabel, Joma, and Raffi. ‘Di naman lumabas sa silong sina Manang Fe, Don Roberto, Donya Esmeralda, Kute, Nanay Teresita at Mamang. Nakangiti ang lahat. Masayang masaya.. Naglalaro ang mga bata sa ulan, pati na rin ang mga ‘young-at-heart’. Nagkatinginan naman sina Maya at Richard ng matagal..)

 

“I love you, Maya. :)”

 

“I love you too, Ser Chief ko. :)”

 

And then, they hugged each other under the rain.
