Nagising si Maya dahil sa ingay ng mga tao sa bahay nila, bumangon sya at bumaba para tignan kung ano ang nangyayari sa salas nila. She saw her Lolo, Tito Roberto and Richard.

‘Aga aga naninira ng araw. Badtrip.’ Maya thought.

Nung napansin nya na hindi naman sa kanya nakatingin ang mga bisita, napagdesisyunan nyang bumalik na lamang sa kwarto nya pero huli na para gawin yun dahil napansin na sya ng kanyang Lolo.

“Maya, magmano ka sa future father-in-law mo and tumabi ka sa future husband mo.” Her Lolo said. Nagkatinginan lang sila ni Richard pero agad din syang umiwas.

Maya did what her Lolo said. “Lolo, mamaya na lang ako lalapit ulit. Kakagising ko lang eh. I’ll just take a bath first. Please excuse me.” Maya said.

“Oh sige Hija. Magbihis ka ng maayos at may pupuntahan kayo ni Richard.”

“What? Where? I’m going to rest Lolo. I’m not feeling well.” Maya pouted her lips. It’s her Lolo’s weakness.

“Should I call the doctor now?” Her Lolo said.

“No need Lo, I just need rest. That’s all. Maybe yung lakad namin ni Mr. Lim next time na lang.” Maya said.

“Okay okay, you go rest na Hija.”

Habang nasa kwarto si Maya, bigla na lamang syang humiga sa kama nya at nakatalikod sya sa pinto ng madinig nyang bumukas ito…

“Maya? Are you sleeping?” Richard said. She faced him now.

“I’m resting and why are you here inside my room? Alam mo ba ang salitang ‘PRIVACY’?”

“Your Lolo forced me.” Richard said. “I should take care of you daw kasi minsan ka lang daw magkasakit at nagaalala sya.”

“Please tell him, I don’t need someone who will take care of me. I can take care of myself.” After she said that, she closed her eyes and tried to sleep.

“Maya, I’m so sorry for what I did last night.” Richard said and Maya remained silent. “I know it’s my fault. I shouldn’t blame you. You’re a victim here also. We’re both victims. I’m really sorry.”

“Stop saying sorry. I should be the one who tells you I’m sorry. It’s my fault. Nadamay ka pa. Don’t worry gagawa ako ng paraan at magmamakaawa ako kay Lolo or gagawin ko na lang ang plano ko.”

“Anong plano mo?” Richard asked.

“Lalayas na lang ako dito at mamumuhay magisa.” Maya said. “Bumalik ka na sa girlfriend mo. I know meron kang girlfriend na maiiwanan just because of me.”

Tumayo si Maya mula sa pagkakahiga at nagpunta sa banyo para hindi makita ni Richard na naiiyak sya.  She left Richard dumbfounded.

Hindi alam ni Maya bakit parang may kurot sa puso nya ang ginawa nya. Hindi din malaman ni Richard kung bakit parang nasaktan sya sa sinabi ni Maya na aatras na lamang sya sa kasal.

Bumaba na si Richard at nakisali sa kanyang ama at Maya’s Lolo sa veranda. Malamig ang hangin pero summer na sa America.

“Richard, pwede mo ba akyatin muli si Maya? We need to talk.” Lolo Rico said.

“Sure Lolo.”

“Sir, handa na po ang lamesa.” Maid said.

“Okay, thank you.” Maya’s Lolo said. “Pakisabi din na kakain na tayo ng hapunan.”

“Sige po Lolo.”

Umakyat si Richard para tawagin si Maya para maghapunan. Tama nga ang Lolo nito, hindi pa nga nya nakikita si Maya na bumaba para magbreakfast at maglunch.

‘Masama ba talaga pakiramdam nya? o Iniiwasan nya ko?’ Richard thought.

Knock… Knock… Knock…

“Maya?” Richard opened the door. She saw Maya’ laying down on her bed. Maya’s back facing him.

“Y-yes? D-do you need anything Richard?” She didn’t turn her back to look at Richard. She didn’t want Richard to see her crying.

“Your Lolo said, the dinner is ready. Please come and join us.”

“I don’t have an appetite. Please tell Lolo I’m not feeling well.”

“But your Lolo said, you’re not yet eating. You might get sick.”

“I already ate. Hindi nyo lang napansin kanina.” She lied.

“Are you sure?”

“Yes, I’m sure.”

“But you need to eat. Magagalit ang Lolo mo.”

“Fine!!” Maya stood up. Naiirita na sya sa pakikialam ni Richard.

Nasa hapagkainan na sila Maya, Richard, Lolo Rico at Papa Roberto. Defeaning silence ang nararamdaman nila.

“Later, Richard and Maya follow me at my office. We need to talk.” Lolo Rico said in a demanding tone.

“Why Lolo? I’m not feeling well. Pwede bang next time na lang?” Maya said.

“No, we need to talk now.”

Pagkatapos nilang kumain. Wala ng nagawa sila Maya at sumunod na sila sa Lolo nya. Nakaupo sila sa harap ng table ng kanyang Lolo, magkatabi sila ni Richard.

“Kaya ko kayo pinatawag dito, para pagusapan ang nalalapit nyong kasal.” Lolo Rico said.

“What?!” Maya said. “Hindi pa ko naga’agree dyan Lolo.”

“Whether you like it or not. Magpapakasal ka Maya. Wag mo kong suwayin!”
Lolo Rico shouted.

“Bakit ba lagi na lang akong pinagpapasa pasahan? Ha? Una, sila Mama Teresita! Pangalawa, sila Mommy! and now, Ikaw Lolo?” Maya said calmly but she’s crying already. “Mahal nyo ba talaga ako?”

“Maya… I’m doing this for you.” Lolo Rico said. “Di mo sya maiintindihan ngayon, pero eventually matatanggap mo.”

“But Lolo, did you ever ask for Richard’s opinion here?” Maya said. “Alam nyo ba na may masisira kayong buhay because of your selfishness?!”

“Actually, Maya. I agreed already.” Richard said.

“What?!” Maya said. “Hindi mo man lang sinasabi sa akin? Kaya pala nandito ka?”

“Maya, stop it. Magpapakasal na kayo ni Richard sa makalawa.” Lolo Rico said.

“Sobra na kayo. Sobra na talaga.” Maya stood up. She’s still crying.

Wedding day… 

Maya was in her hotel room with Emman and some makeup artists. It’s a simple church wedding. Family, some close friends  and of course Businessmen.

Tapos ng make’upan si Maya at umalis na ang mga makeup-artist nya. Emman approached her.

“Ang ganda mo Girl! Ikaw na ang prettiest bride!” Emman smiled at her. “Are you ready Maya? Ngumiti ka naman!” Emman asked her.

“Hindi naman ako magiging ready dito kahit kelan Emman.” Maya said as she faked a smile.

At the church… 

The wedding entourage started already. She was waiting for her turn in front of a closed Church’s door and the door opened…

Ten.. Ten.. Tenen… Ten.. Ten.. Tenen…

She met her Lolo at the center of aisle.

“Maya, smile.” Lolo Rico said.

“I’m smiling Lolo.” Maya said.

They met Richard already and Lolo Rico gave Maya’s hand. “Goodluck My Grand daughter. I love you. Richard, please take care of my apo.”

“Sure Lolo.”

Wedding Ceremony…

“Richard Lim, do you take Maya Alvarez to be your wife? Do you promise to be true to her in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love her and honor her all the days of your life?”

“Yes, I do Father.”

“Maya Alvarez, do you take Richard Lim to be your husband? Do you promise to be true to him in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and honor him all the days of your life?”

“Yes, I do Father.”

“Ladies and Gentlemen, I am now presenting you. The newlyweds Mr. Richard Lim and Mrs. Maya Lim.”

*Claps… Claps… Claps…*
