Chapter 1 – Maya’s Memories.

“I’m Maya Dela Rosa – Ventura. 28 years old. I’m the CEO of Time Airways…

And this is my story…”


December 2014. Maya’s House.

Maya went to the family room, she wanted to reminisce. It has been 5 years since the last time she went there.

“It has been 5 years since the last time I saw this album.” She got the album inside the cabinet. “Kaya ko na ba?”

She saw their pictures together, a happy complete family. James beside Maya smiling from ear to ear with their kids Janica and Marco who is also smiling from ear to ear…

*Bang* She closed the photo album.

“I can’t do it. Hindi ko pa kaya.” Maya said.

Tears were starting to form in her eyes. She can’t help it. She was looking up at the ceiling to stop the tears from falling but it was too late. Tears were starting to fall already.

“Ang tanga tanga mo Maya! Bakit ka pa nandito?! Sinasaktan mo lang ang sarili mo! Ano ba kasi ang pumasok sa isip mo at pumunta ka dito? WTH!” Maya shouted at herself.

With too much anger. She shouted, she cried and she threw the vases and she leaned on the wall thile holding her hair and started to cry so hard and she was shouting.

“Bakit?! Bakit ako pa?! Bakit ako? Ang dami daming masasama dyan, bakit hindi sila ang ginawan mo ng ginawa mo sakin ha?! Bakit kailangan ko pang maramdaman to? Anong kasalanan ko?! ANO?! BAKIT?!” She shouted.

She picked up the broken piece of the vase and she was about to cut her pulse.

“I want to die. I want to die. I want to die!!” Maya shouted.

Manang Tess heard her. Manang Tess ran quickly to her when Manang Tess saw her ‘alaga’…

“Nako po Maya! Ano ba ang nangyari dito? Ano ba ang nangyayari sayo?”

Manang Fe hugged her and Maya cried on her shoulders.

“I want to die Manang.” Maya said. “It has been 5 years Manang, but why do I still feel the same pain?”

Maya pushed her Manang and looked straight into her eyes.

“Manang, Am I that bad? Or maybe Am I a bad person?”

“Maya, Anak. Ano ba yang sinasabi mo, ikaw na ang pinakamabait na bata na nakilala ko. Kaya wag mong isipin na masama kang tao.”

“But why do I feel this?” Maya said. “This damn feeling!”

Maya stood up, not waiting for Manang Tess’ answer. She just can’t accept that someone was seeing her at that stage of her life. Manang Tess was her Nanny when she was still a kid and she becames her 2nd mother.

She slammed the door and leaned against it. She started to cry again.

“Gusto ko ng matapos to! Ayoko ng maramdaman to.” Maya said while pointing at her heart.

She went under her bed and pulled out the big long box under it. She opened it and she picked up a jar full of withered petals of roses. She remembered…


February 2009.  Ventura’s House (Present Time: Maya’s house)

Maya was sleeping on their bed, she was tired from her flight and she heard someone strumming a guitar as she opened her eyes, she saw her husband with their kids Janica and Marco singing ‘Valentine – Martina McBride’

If there were no words 
No way to speak
I would still hear you.

If there were no tears 
No way to feel inside
I’d still feel for you. 

And even if the sun refuse to shine 
Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart
Until the end of time
You’re all i need
My love, my valentine.

James was looking at her eye intently and he was smiling from ear to ear. Her Prince Marco started to sing his lines.

All of my life 
I have been waiting for
All you give to me
You’ve opened my eyes
And showed me how to love unselfishly.

I’ve dreamed of this a thousand times before
In my dreams i couldnt love you more
I will give you my heart
Until the end of time
You’re all i need
My love, my valentine.   

She kissed Marco and smiled at him. She was teary-eyed then her Princess Janica started to sing her lines also.

La da da 
Da da da da.

And even if the sun refuse to shine
Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart
Until the end of time
Cuz all i need
Is you, my valentine. 

She was crying now, really. She was so speechless, she didn’t know how to react. She was smiling while crying. They all sang in unison.

You’re all i need 
My love, my valentine

Janica was carrying a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates, Marco was carrying the breakfast tray for her Mommy Maya and he placed it on his Mom’s bed and James was with his guitar, strumming and smiling at Maya.

“Breakfast in Bed Mom!” Marco said.

Maya couldn’t help but to smile to her kids and to her husband. James gave a sign to Janica and Janica immediately gave the flowers and chocolates to her Dad. James knelt down and handed Maya the flowers and the chocolates.

“Happy Valentine’s Day Honey! I love you so much!” James said and he kissed her passionately.

“Yieee! Mommy and Daddy! You’re the sweetest couple ever!” Janica said.

And they all started to laugh.

Present time…

December 2014. Maya’s Room.

Maya remembered everything. She was crying so hard, she couldn’t help it then Maya picked up the big card and a paperbag. She remembered…


May 2009. Master’s Bedroom.

It was her leave, she was in the arms of her husband James. She woke up and went downstairs, she was about to prepare a breakfast when she heard her kids laughing and teasing each other. When she looked at the veranda, she surprised her kids.

“Boo! What are you doing Kids?” Maya said.

“Mommy!! You can’t see these! Close your eyes please.” Her kids pleaded.

“Okay okay.. I’m going to close my eyes.”

She turned her back and she put her hands to cover her eyes and she felt someone embraced her. She removed the cover on her eyes.

“James!” Maya said. “Akala ko kung sino Honey.”

“Honey, ang daya mo! Pikit lang kasi.”

“Why? I didn’t see anything. Wala akong alam na may surprise kayo sakin.” Maya started to laugh.

“Just wait for us there Honey.” James said.

She was about to go to the kitched when James grabbed her hand.

“What?” Maya smiled.

“Wag kang magluto, ako magluluto.”

“Are you serious?” Maya said. “Okay lang kahit ako na ang magluto.”

“Maya, ako na. Para special.”


“Shhhh! No more arguments.”

“Okay, ikaw na! Chef James!” Maya smiled at him and kissed him.

She waited at the entertainment room.

“Honey! Matagal pa ba? Gutom na ko.” Maya said.

“5 more minutes Honey.” James said. “Kids! Dalian nyo, magiging monster na ang Mommy nyo dahil sa gutom.” He laughed.


“Mommy, we’re done na!!” Marco went to the entertainment room. “Let me cover your eyes first.”

“Okay, cover my eyes my Prince.” Maya said.

They went downstairs at the veranda.

“Surprise!!” Her husband and kids said in unison. “Happy Mother’s Day Mommy! You’re the best mommy in the whole universe! We love you so much!”

At the background, she saw a big cartolina with some designs and a big letterings of…

‘Happy Mom’s Day! We love you! Love, James, Janica and Marco.’

She was teary eyed.

“Hep hep! Wag muna iiyak, di pa yan tapos. Meron pa!” James said and he brought out a huge card.

“Wow! Ang laki naman nyan.”

“Meron pa Mommy!” Janica got something from Marco’s back. A paperbag.

“Let’s see. What’s inside…” Maya said while he reached for the thing inside the paperbag. “Wow, a shirt!”

“You’re the best Mommy Maya in the whole universe!” Maya read the lines printed on the shirt. “You’re the sweetest kids and the sweetest husband ever! I love you so much.” She kissed them one by one.


Present time…

December 2014. Maya’s Room.

It was past midnight but Maya was still awake. She was still reminiscing her memories with them then she brought out a scrapbook or a mini album.



June 2009. Kitchen.

Maya was celebrating her  23rd birthday. Her husband James and her kids slept late. So, it was 9am and they were still sleeping.

“Sobrang tanghali naman nitong mga ito. I already cooked breakfast and I also prepared their clothes already for our dinner later tapos tulog pa din.” Maya said.

While Maya was having her coffee at the veranda, someone covered her eyes.

“James?” Maya said.

“Honey, Kids! Come on!” James said. “Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you!!!” They sang it in unison while James carrying her cake.

“Blow the candles now Mom!” Janica said.

“Wait!” Marco protested. “Wish first!”

So, Maya closed her eyes and said a little a wish..

‘I wish to be with them forever. With my Family. That’s all. Thank you for giving me a wonderful family.’ Maya wished silently and she blew the candles.

“Yehey!! Happy Birthday Mom! We love you!” The kids said in unison.


Present time…

December 2014. Maya’s Room.

That was the best birthday ever for Maya. Every birthday she celebrated with them was the best birthday. She put down the things she brought out from the box and she went to her bed,she hid under the blanket while hugging a pillow and she started to cry again…

“I miss you Guys…” Maya said.

Her eyes were too tired. She was quickly brought to the Dreamland.
