Habang nag-aagahan ang buong Lim family (including Doris, Sabel, Joma, Manang Fe, and Raffi), pinag-uusapan na rin nila kung paano ang gagawin nila mamaya para sa ‘big surprise’ para kay Maya.

 

“Son, today’s the day! Are you excited?”, asked Roberto.

 

“Yes, Pa.. And also nervous.”

 

“This is it! I’m excited also. Naku, Abby. Galingan mo mamayang gabi, ha? Alam mo na ang gagawin mo.”

 

“Yes, lola. I know what to do. Tinuruan na po ako ni Ate Nikki. :)”

 

“Basta, Richard.. Mauuna na kami nila Tita Esmeralda sa venue.” Raffi said.

 

“Naku, nakaka-excite naman talaga ‘to!” (biglang maluluha)

 

“Oh, ba’t parang maluluha ka, Doris?” Joma asked.

 

“Masaya lang talaga ako para kay Maya, at syempre, para na din sa inyo, Ser Richard.”

 

“Ako din, Doris. Tignan mo naman kung nasaan si Maya ngayon, diba? :)” Sabel added.

 

“Oo, Sabel. At magiging successful din tayo balang araw. :D”

 

“..Ayan na naman kayong dalawa.”

 

“Hay naku, Joma. Tumigil ka nga!”, both said.

 

Then, everybody laughs.πŸ™‚

 

“Excuse me for a while. I have to call Liza.”

 

Lumayo muna saglit si Richard para tawagan si Liza.

 

~~

 

(sa airport..)

 

[Mr. Lim calling..]

 

“Good morning, sir. Today’s the day! :)”

 

“Yes, Liza. Is everybody there? Si Ryan ba, dumating na?”

 

“Yes, sir. Kadarating lang po. Pati si Emman.”

 

“Yung mga co-FA’s ni Maya?,”

 

“Nandito na din po. Actually, kanina ko pa nga po sila kasama eh.”

 

“Yung pinapadala ko?”

 

“Yes, sir. Nandito na din po. :)”

 

“Good. Just call me kapag nandito na kayo sa San Nicolas. Ipapasundo ko na lang kayo kila Joma at Mang Lem.”

 

“Okay, sir. See you later. :)”

 

~~

 

(dela Rosa’s residence)

 

biglang nagising si Maya dahil nagri-ring ang cellphone niya..

 

[Ser Chief❀ calling..]

 

“Good morning, Ser Chief ko. :)”

 

“Kakagising mo lang?”

 

“Ah, oo eh. Napasarap kasi yung tulog ko. :P”

 

“May gagawin ka ba mamayang gabi?”

 

“Wala naman. Bakit?”

 

“Gusto kasi ng mga bata na magdinner dito sa hotel kasama ka.”

 

“Okay. Sige. Eh sila Tita Esmeralda ba, kasama?”

 

“No. Gusto daw nilang mamasyal dito sa San Nicolas. Kasama nila Mama & Papa sila Doris, Sabel, Joma, Manang Fe, and Raffi. Sasama din sa kanila si Mang Lem. So, susunduin na lang kita diyan mamaya?”

 

“Okay, Ser Chief ko. See you later.”

 

“I love you. :)”

 

“I love you too. :)”

 

~~

 

(pagbalik ni Richard..)

 

“So, Richard. Tinawagan mo na ba si Maya?”, Raffi asked.

 

“Yes, at susunduin ko siya mamaya. Kids, dito na lang tayo sa restaurant magkita-kita.”

 

“Yes, dad.” Nikki replied.

 

“Si Liza ba, papunta na?”

 

“Siguro, Ma. Nandoon na din naman silang lahat sa airport. Baka andito na din sila in an hour or two.”

 

“Oh my geeeeeeeee! This day is going to be sooooooooo exciting! I can’t wait!”

 

“Me too, Ate Nikki. Excited na nga din po akong suotin yung dress ko mamaya eh. :)”

 

“Me too, baby. :)”

 

**

 

(after two hours..)

 

Dumating na sila Liza sa hotel bitbit ang mga kailangan nila mamayang gabi. Sinalubong naman sila ni Richard.

 

“Brad! Are you excited?”

 

“Yes, Ryan. Definitely.”

 

“So, how did you propose to her? You better tell me later, huh?”

 

“Yes. Mamaya. Ah, Liza. Yung mga pinapadala ko?”

 

“Yes, sir. Dala ko po lahat. Pati yung susuotin ng mga bata mamayang gabi.”

 

“Sir Richard, thank you po ha.” Emman said.

 

“Oo nga po, sir. Salamat po. :)” Edselyn added.

 

“No problem. Let’s go upstairs.”

 

(pagdating nila sa labas ng hotel room, sinalubong sila nila Nikki.)

 

“Oh my gee! They’re here! Hi, Emmie! :)”

 

“Hello, Nikki girl! Hi, Abby.”

 

“Hello, kuya Emman. Hello din po sa inyo.πŸ™‚

So, you must be Ate Maya’s workmates. Am I right?”

 

“Oo, Abby. Kami nga. :)”

 

“You know what? I want to be a flight stewardess, just like Ate Maya. :)”

 

(all smiles ang mga co-FA’s ni Maya.)

 

“Ah, Tita Liza. Can we see na our dress?”

 

“Mine, too! :)” Abby added.

 

“Here.”

 

(inabot ni Joma kila Nikki at Abby yung mga dress nila. Pagkatapos, nakita ni Raffi sila Liza.)

 

“Hi, Liza! Where’s Maya’s gown?”

 

“Ma’am Raffi, eto po.” Joma gave Raffi Maya’s gown, then she said..

 

“Great! So, everything’s set? Punta na kayo sa mga kwarto niyo para makapagpahinga na rin kayo. :)”

 

**

 

(kinagabihan..)

 

Nagpunta si Richard sa bahay nila Maya dahil susunduin niya ito at magdi-dinner silang dalawa kasama ng mga bata sa hotel.

 

Pagpasok ni Richard sa loob, agad siyang nakita ni Nanay Teresita.

 

“Magandang gabi po, Aling Teresita. Sila Kute po? Nakaready na po ba kayo?”

 

“Oo, Richard. Excited na excited na kami.πŸ™‚

Richard, masayang masaya ako para sa inyong dalawa.”

 

“Salamat po, Aling Teresita.”

(yayakapin si Nanay Teresita)

 

“..At isa pa, Richard.”

 

“Ano po ‘yun?”

 

“‘Wag mo na akong tawaging ‘Aling’ Teresita. ‘Nanay’ Teresita na ang itatawag mo sa’kin ngayon, ha?”

 

“Opo, Nanay Teresita. :)”

 

“Mabuti kung ganun. Sandali lang at tatawagin ko lang si Maya.”

 

Nasa loob ng kwarto si Maya ng tinawag siya ni Nanay Teresita.

 

“Maya, andito na si Richard.”

 

“Sige po, ‘Nay. Lalabas na po ako.”

 

Paglabas ni Maya..

 

“Hi, Ser Chief. Happy anniversary! :)”

 

“Happy anniversary.πŸ™‚ Ready to go?”

 

“Oo, Ser Chief. Tara na?”

 

“Wait. You’re forgetting something..”

 

“Ano yun, Ser Chief?”

 

“Hindi mo ba isusuot yung earrings na regalo ko sa’yo nung 1st monthsary natin?”

 

(kinapa ang tenga..)

 

“Ay, ‘di ko pala nasuot. Teka, babalik lang ako saglit sa kwarto.”

 

Pagbalik ni Maya sa kwarto, kinuha niya agad ang earrings. Habang sinusuot niya ito sa harap ng salamin, nasabi niya ‘to sa kanyang sarili..

 

“Maya. Eto na.. Pagkatapos ng lahat ng pagsubok na dinaanan niyo ni Ser Chief.. 1 year na kayo! Ang perfect na ng lahat.πŸ™‚ Naku, Maya, ‘wag kang iiyak. Masaya ang gabing ito kaya walang dahilan para umiyak ka.”

 

Paglabas ni Maya sa kwarto, nagpaalam na sila ni Richard kay Nanay Teresita. Pagkatapos ay dumiretso na sila sa restaurant (sa loob ng hotel) kung saan naghihintay ang mga bata.

 

Habang kumakain sila, napansin ni Maya na matamlay kumain si Abby.

 

“Baby, ok ka lang?”

 

“Ate Maya. My head hurts.😦

Bigla pong sumakit yung ulo ko.”

 

“Gusto mo, samahan na kita sa taas?”

 

“No, Maya. Stay here. Luke, Nikki, kayo na lang ang bahala kay Abby. Iakyat niyo na lang siya sa kwarto.”

 

“Yes, dad. Ate Maya, mauna na po kami. Let’s go?,” Luke said.

 

“Sige, Luke. Alalayan mong mabuti si Abby.”

 

(habang papalabas sila Luke, Nikki at Abby sa hotel, sinalubong na sila ni Raffi.)

 

“Good one, Abby. Ang galing mo umacting! :)”

 

“Ofcourse, Tita Raffi. I teached her. :)” said Nikki.

 

“Nikki talaga.. Ay, Tita Raffi. Tawagan niyo na po si Ate Maya. :)”

 

“Yes, Luke. Mauna na kayo sa kotse. Susunod na lang ako.”

 

“Sige, Tita Raffi.”

 

~~

 

Tapos ng kumain sila Richard at Maya ng tumawag si Raffi.

 

[Raffi calling]

 

“Raffi. Napatawag ka. May kailangan ka?”

 

“Can you do me a favor?”

 

“O, sige. Ano yun?”

 

“I’m here sa ‘romantic place’ niyo ni Richard. And I left something in my room. Pwede mo bang dalhin dito? It’s in my bed. Para naman makapunta ulit kayo ni Richard dito. :)”

 

“Talaga? Sige, Raffi. Papunta na kami. :)”

 

“Thanks, Maya. Bye.”

 

~~

 

(sa labas ng hotel)

 

Pumasok na ng kotse si Raffi para pumunta sa ‘romantic place’.

 

“Ok na po ba, Tita Raffi?”, tanong ni Luke.

 

“Yes. Alam na ni Richard ang gagawin. So, don’t worry. Everything’s going to be so perfect. :)”

 

“I’m excited! She’s going to be our mom soon. I can’t wait na, Ate Nikki.”

 

“Kami din, baby. :)”

 

“Kuya Joma, ok na ba sila Manang Fe sa kabilang sasakyan?”

 

“Opo, Ma’am Raffi.”

 

“Okay, then. Let’s go! :)”

 

~~

 

Pagpasok nila sa kwarto ni Raffi, bumungad sa kanila ang isang malaki at maliit na box na kulay puti.

 

“Sa tingin mo, Ser Chief. Ano kaya ung laman nung box?”

 

“I don’t know. Ako na lang magbibitbit.”

 

**

 

Pagdating nila Richard at Maya sa ‘romantic place’, napangiti si Maya habang naglalakad sila papunta sa (may) tent at sinabing..

 

“Ser Chief.. Andito na ulit tayo. Biruin mo, isang taon na ang nakakaraan nung huling punta natin dito.”

 

“..At dito naging ‘tayo’. :)”

 

“Oo nga, Ser Chief. At ‘tayo’ pa din hanggang ngayon.”

 

“Yes, I know. I love you, Maya.”

 

“At mahal kita, Ser Chief ko.”

 

Pagdating nila sa tent..

 

“Hi, Maya! :)”, Raffi said.

 

“Maya, excuse me. I have to call Luke. I’ll just check kung ok na si Abby. Raffi, ikaw na muna bahala kay Maya.”

 

“Yes, Richard. I WILL.πŸ™‚

(then, Richard left.)

Let’s go, Maya!”

 

“Ano’ng gagawin natin?”

 

“Just sit there and relax.”

 

“Ha? Bakit?”

 

“Because you are my model for tonight. Actually, kaya sa’yo ko ipinadala yung mga boxes na yun kasi gusto ko ikaw ang magsuot nun.”

 

“Ano ba yung laman nung box, Raffi?”

 

“See for yourself. :)”

 

Pagbukas ni Maya ng mga box..

 

“Wedding gown at sapatos?”

 

“Yes. I’m trying to start a new business. Events organizing, and such.. I’m planning kasi na ipakita yan sa mga friends ko sa States. Since ayoko namang maghire ng model, kaya ikaw na lang. Can you do this for me please? Sandali lang naman ‘to eh.”

 

“Makakatanggi ba ko sa’yo, Raffi? Sige na nga. :)”

 

“Good. And when you’re finished shooting sa may banda dun, pumunta ka na lang doon sa may venue. Kita mo?” (sabay turo sa open field)

 

“Yung may maraming ilaw?”

 

“Yep. Doon muna ako, ha? I need to fix something. See you!”

 

Then Raffi left with a big smile on her face. She quickly went to the venue.

 

“Ok, guys. Suot na niya yung wedding dress niya! She’s so beautiful. Ready, Richard?”

 

Don Roberto saw na kinakabahan si Richard. Agad niya itong tinapik sa balikat at sinabing..

 

“Everything’s going to be fine, son. Don’t worry.”

 

“Yes, Pa. :)”

 

“Congratulations, hijo. We’re happy for you and Maya.”

 

“Ma, Pa, thank you for doing this.”

 

“It’s the least we can do, son. Good luck. Doon na kami sa upuan pupunta,” Don Roberto said. Then Richard hugged his parents.

 

Everybody’s set for the big event. Richard’s infront with his best man, Luke. Abby, Nikki, Manang Fe, Doris, Sabel, Joma, Don Roberto and Donya Esmeralda is in the right side. Also, Liza and Ryan with them. On the other side, Maya’s whole family is present. Kute, Cho, Mamang, Jeff (yes, Jeff.. He flew from Dubai to be here in this special occasion), also Maya’s co-FA’s is also here. Even Emman. Nanay Teresita is in the far part of the place waiting for the bride, Maya.

 

“Ok, places everybody! Malapit na siya. :)”

 

~~

 

Maya thought that what she’s doing is just a ‘simple shoot’.. Ang hindi niya alam, kanina pa nagsisimula ang ‘big surprise’ para sa kanya.πŸ™‚

 

Habang papalapit siya ng papalapit sa venue, nakita siya ni Nanay Teresita.

 

“Maya, anak!”

 

“O, ‘Nay. Ba’t po nandito kayo? Bakit nakabihis po kayo? Aa-ano po’ng ginagawa niyo dito? Kasama din ba kayo sa shoot?”

 

“Basta, ‘nak. Halika na.”

 

While she’s holding the bouquet of flowers on her left, and Nanay Teresita’s hand on her right hand, the violins are starting to play beautiful music (BCWMH intro) as they enter the venue.

 

All is set. The WEDDING is starting.

 

Maya saw her one true love in the altar with his best man, smiling at her. As they start to walk down the isle, Maya cried.

 

“Nanay.. Totoo ba talaga lahat ng ‘to?”

 

“Oo, Maya. Hindi ka nananaginip.”

 

“Para naman kasing ‘di kapani-paniwala eh.”

 

“Anak, kalma ka lang. Dapat masaya ka nga ngayon.”

 

Maya’s still crying with tears of joy when they reached the altar. Nanay Teresita kissed Maya in the cheeks. Then, Richard thanked Nanay Teresita. Richard held Maya’s hand with full of joy and love.

 

“Are you surprised?”

 

“Oo naman! Ikaw talaga, Ser Chief.”

 

(Richard wiped her tears by his hand.)

“Stop crying. It’s our wedding..”

 

Maya replied him with the sweetest smile she can give.

 

~~

 

(wedding proper.. last part.)

 

“Is there anything that you want to say to each other?”, the priest asked. They looked at each other with full of happiness. Richard held Maya’s hand, then he said..

 

“Maya, here we are.. Look at where we’re standing. I know it’s been a year.. A year full of surprises. There were happy and sad moments. And of those problems that we faced together, alam kong hindi mo ko iniwan. You accepted me for who I am and what I am. You loved me endlessly, my kids, and my family.. Alam ko na minsan, hindi ko natutumbasan yung pagmamahal na ibinibigay mo. But still, you keep on loving me.. Sobra sobra pa. That’s why I’m very happy and lucky to have you. Thank you for coming into my life. I promise that I will love you endlessly. And that no one will break us apart. We’ll face our problems together. I’ll be here by your side for as long as I live. I love you, Maya. And that will never change.”

 

“Ser Chief ko.. Hindi mo alam kung gaano mo ako pinasaya ngayon. Sobra sobra mo akong napasaya. Hindi ko alam na eto pala yung gagawin mo sa anniversary natin. Maraming salamat sa pag-uunawa, sa pag-aaruga at sa pagmamahal. Wala na akong ibang masabi. Basta, lagi mong tatandaan ‘to.. Na hinding-hindi ako mawawala sa tabi mo, at lagi kang nandito sa puso ko. I love you, Ser Chief ko!”

 

after their vows, both Richard and Maya looked in other’s face with their sweetest smile while the preacher is saying this..

 

“We heard their vows. Richard and Maya, may the Lord bless you with your new life together as husband and wife. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Lim. Richard, you may now kiss your bride.”

 

They looked at each other very sweetly. They face are getting closer and closer. Then, they kissed. A kiss full of happiness and love for each other. Everyone’s clapping, cheering and smiling to the newly weds.

 

“Maya dela Rosa-Lim, I LOVE YOU. :)”

 

“..And I LOVE YOU, Richard Lim. :)”
