“Maya, will you marry me? Again?” Nagulat si Maya sa sinabi ni Richard.
“Ha, bakit hindi ba kasal na tayo?” sabi ni Maya.
“Hindi ba wala ka parin maalala, gusto ko na kahit wala ka ng maalala, maranasan mo na ikasal” Sabi ni Richard.
“I love you Ricky!” It means yes.
“I love you too Maya” Sabi ni Richard
“Eto ayos naman ako, I’ve heard you got married once again” James said with a smile
“Oo nga eh, ang sarap pala sa pakiramdam” Maya replied
“Sobra, I’m happy that you are happy Maya” James said, mapapansin mo sa tono nito na totoong masaya siya para kay Maya
“kinasal ka na rin ba?” She asked.
“Oo, 2 years ago na” James answered. He married Infinity, kapatid ng asawa ni Daryll(friend niya)
“Wow, that’s great” Maya answered , masayang masaya
“Sa America kasi kami nagpakasal kaya hindi ko na kayo nainvite” James said.
“as long as you are happy, wala naman problema doon diba” Maya replied, there was a moment of silence happened when James decided to talk first.
“ah Maya” James said with his soft voice that is soothing.
“Bakit” Maya answered, waiting for what James about to say.
“Thank you” This made Maya think but her heart was jumping with joy.
“For what?” She asked.
“For giving me the chance to start again and to be happy, kung hindi mo ako pinatawad, hindi ko mapapatawad ang sarili ko, hindi ako makaka move on” Niyakap ni Maya si James pagkasabi nito, masaya si Maya dahil pareho na silang nakapagmove on at mayroon ng sariling buhay.
“We all deserve to be happy, lahat naman may rason diba at maganda naman ang naging resulta” Maya said.
“Tama ka” James replied.
“I’ve better be going inaantay na ito ng mga bata” Maya said goodbye to James with a wave.
“Talaga, anong occasion?”He asked.
“Anniversary namin ni Richard” She answered.
“Wow, Stay strong ah”
“Ikaw ano occasion?”
“Birthday ni Misis”
“Wow send my greetings to her ha”
Everything happens for a reason, that’s the thing that I’ve learned, we have learned. Even though it takes time to realize it, it happens still. This is the story of second chances, forgiveness and true love. Walang bagay sa mundo na mananatiling bangungot dahil darating pa rin ang isang araw na magiging maayos ang lahat, kahit na maraming pagkukulang, pagkakamali, darating pa rin ang taong magtatama at magpupuno nito. But one’s thing for sure, When I was his man, I should have given her what she deserves and by letting her go, I saw that she has now what she deserves. I’m happy for that. This is our story. I’m sharing this to all of you, for us to value what we have and cherish every minute of it because life is shorter than we think it is, let’s live our life to the fullest. Hindi lahat ng nasa mundo ay permanente. Kaya wag natin itong sayangin.
By the way this is James speaking. I wish you all and happy life.
“Hon, nandyan kana pala” Richard said and give Maya a kiss.
“Cake oh, pababain mo na ang mga bata” Sabi ni Maya
“Ayaw nga eh, naglalaro kasi ng video games” Sabi ni Richard na parang nagsususumbong kay Maya
“Luke Andrew Lim!” Tawag ni Maya na parang teacher na nagcecheck ng attendance.
“Present Ma!” Sabi ni Luke at may saludo pa. natawa si Maya at Richard.
“Nikki Grace Lim”
“Oh my Gee Ma, I’m here!” Sabi ni Nikki na nagaayos pa ng buhok.
“ Abigail Ruth Lim”
“Always present ma!” Ang little lady naging lady na, marunong ng magayos.
“Mavin Dayle Lim!”
“Mama I’m here” 7 years old na anak nila Maya. Matatas narin sumagot at parang 10 years old na.
“Nasaan ang kambal?” Sabi ni Richard, yes may anak silang kambal.
“Samilane Belle, Alejandre Kyle Lim!”
“ Mama, si Kyle oh madaya tinago yung doll ko!” Sabi ni Sam, they are 5 years old.
“Mama I didn’t” Pilyo naman ang anak nilang lalaki na ito.
“Kayo talaga tama na yan, bukas aalis na si Kuya Luke, babalik na siya ng Singapore, Si Ate Nikki niyo babalik na ng Canada, si Ate Abby niyo babalik na sa Condo dahil may school na siya, kayong tatlo na lang ang matitira ditto hindi pa kayo nagkakasundo” Sabi ni Maya na may lambing sa mga anak.
“Sorry Dad, sorry Ma” Sabi ng kambal
“Okay go and eat now” Richard said and when they left, Richard hugged Maya from her back. Maya turned to him.
“Hon, napapansin ko wala ka ng time sa akin” Sabi ni Richard na parang bata.
“Nako po, nagdrama ang mahal na hari, walang time pano nangyari yun eh gabi gabi tayong magkatabi ah” Maya said, natatawa at nacucutan sa asawa.
“Hindi naman iyon eh” Richard gave her a eye contact and she knows what he means.
“Mr.Lim, ang dami na nating anak, tama na” sabi ni Maya na tila natatawa at nakikiliti sa yakap ng asawa.
“Kiss mo na lang ako” Parang bata na sinabi ni Maya, parang mayroon pa siyang bunso.
“Haha, Ricky!” Sabi ni Maya at natatawa pa rin
“Sige na nga wag na” , yumuko si Richard at bumitaw sa yakap na parang bata pero hinila siya ni Maya.
“I love you” Sabi ni Maya at hinalikan si Richard sa labi, it was a passionate kiss.
“I love you too” He replied.
“Tara na” Maya grabbed his hand and headed to the dining. All you can hear is laugh and the stories na hindi matutumbasan.

Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don’t sound the same
When our friends talk about you, all that it does is just tear me down
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name
It all just sounds like oooooh.
Mmmm… Too young, too dumb to realize
That I should ‘ve bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should ‘ve gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man
