Beauty and Madness – part 14

This is a continuation to Beauty and Madness – part 13

Love will always find its way to your heart.

Richard and Rafi left. Maya stayed outside a bit.  Recalling of what had had happened that night. She couldn’t still believe that she and Richard are officially in a relationship and eventually her fiancé. She didn’t realized that she’s just smiling the whole while NAnay was staring at her,  until her nanay called her.

NT: Maya, anak.

Maya: Ay! Nay akala ko po matutulog nap o kayo?

NT: Hindi ako makatulog e! Naexcite ata ako sa ibinalita mo.

Maya: Hindi po kayo galit?

NT: Bakit naman ako magagalit? Masaya ako para sa’yo. Para sa inyong dalawa ni Richard. Siguro nabigla lang ako kasi umalis ka ng bahay na wala ka pang kasintahan tapos pagbalik mo may magpapaalam na nang pamanhikan.

With a bit of shyness, Maya covered her face.

Maya: Nay naman.

Nanay Teresita held Maya’s hand as she talked to her daughter heart-to-heart.

NT: Anak para sa akin naman nasa tamang edad ka na. Alam mo kung ano nag tama at ang mali. Walang mali sa pagmamahal. Ang ligawan naman pwedeng maikli o pwede din namang tumagal. Depende kasi yun. Yung iba pagkaengage kasal agad. Yung iba naman engaged tapos matagal-tagal bago pa sila magpakasal.

Maya: PArang yung sa amin po ni James?

NT: Maraming pwedeng mangyari na hindi natin inaasahan. Tanging Diyos ang may alam kung anong mangyayari sa atin bukas. Yung sa inyo ni Richard alam ng Panginoon na darating ang araw na magiging kayo.

Maya: Nay sa tingin nyo po ba magiging ok kami?

NT: Oo naman. Mahal mo sya di ba? Mahal ka din naman nya.

Maya: Sapat po ba ang pagmamahal lang?

NT: Kung ako ang tatanungin, Oo. Kasi di ba sa pagmamahal nandun na yung respeto, paggalang, lahat-lahat na. yung mga bagay na higit pa sa kaya mong ibigay.

Maya: PEro bakit po si James hindi sapat na minahalko sya.

NT: Iba si Richard, iba si James. Di ba nga nabanggit mo sa akin na hindi pa nagkagirlfriend si Richard. So ikaw yung una nya. Maswerte ka anak.

Maya: Sa tingin nyo po?

NT: OO. At sige na pumasok ka na sa loob at magayos ka na ng gamit mo. MAaga ka nilang susunduin.

Maya: Ay! Oo nga pala. Sige po nay. Good night po.

She turned her back and about to go to her room. She paused for a while and ran back to her nanay and hugged her tight.

Maya: Nay, thank you po. Mahal na mahal ko po kayo.

Nanay Teresita answered with a sweetsmile and teary eyes.

Maya: Nay wag tayong  magmoment ngayon. Baka mamaga mata ko bukas. E tiyak na tatanungin ako ni Richard.

NT: Sige na, sige na. Mag-ayos ka na ng gamit mo.

Maya went to her room. She took out her luggage from her closet and pick up some clothes. She placed those on her bed. Then she went to her bathroom and gathered some toiletries. Her favorite perfume, Cabotine Rose, of course is on the list.

Maya: Ano pa ba mga kailangan ko? Hmmmm…

She thinks of what to bring. She needs only a week of change clothes, her personal things. And as she packing things, her phone rang. She picked up the phone…

Ricahrd: I’m missing you already.

Maya: Ano ka ba? Kaaalis mo lang dito sa bahay.

Richard: Anong kaalis lang? 3 hours ago nung umalis ako sa inyo.

Maya: 3 hours nab a yun?

Richard: So ready to go?

Maya: Yap. I’ll just put my things in the bag and ready na. San ba tayo pupunta?

Richard: Surprise nga.

Maya: ang daya naman. Sige na I’ll just try to get some sleep.

Richard: Matutulog ka pa? Sa eroplano na lang.

Maya: Sasakay tayo ng eroplano?

Richard smiled on the other line. No words came out from him.

Maya: hello. Andyan ka pa ba? Magsalita ka nga.

Richard: Take some sleep. But be sure to put your alarm on. Bye sweety.

Maya: Uy! TEka lang.

Richard hang up the phone.

Maya: Hay naku! Talaga naman. Sarap batukan. Hay! Hirap naman ng madaliang biyahe. Buti na lang ikaw Richard Lim ang kasama ko.

She laid down on her bed, put the alarm on at 4 am so she could prepare herself.

After an hour, her alarm kept on buzzing…

Maya:  What? 4 am na agad! I have to take a shower para mawala ang antok.

She took her quick shower, got dress and went down with her luggage. She noticed that the lights are open in the living room.

Richard: Good morning.

Maya: Ay! Kabayo!

Maya got surprised by Richard that morning.

Maya: Anong ginagawa mo dito?

Richard: Sinusundo nag fiancée ko.

Maya: I mean bakit ang aga mo?

Richard: Hindi ako maaga, late ka na.

Maya: Weh?

Richard: Seriously, akala ko kasi maabutan kita ng may muta pa.

Maya: Ang sama mo. Paano ka nga pala nakapasok?

Richard: I took your keys.

HE showed the keys to her.

Maya: hA? Paano mo nakuha yan?

Richard: Well, you know me?

Maya: ang bilis  mo pala talaga.

Richard: I’m sorry for stealing your keys. Ikaw nga hindi ka pa nagsosorry sa akin.

Maya got confused.

Maya: Para saan?

Richard: For stealing my heart.

Maya: Corny mo.

Richard: MAdali ka pala mapikon pag bagong gising.

Maya: Hmmmp. Eton a ang bag ko magpapaalam lang ako kay nanay.

Maya went to nanay TEresita’s room and bid goodbye. She will be leaving for a week with Richard and Rafi. And Maya promised that she will call her nanay from time to time but her nanay insisted that she don’t have to worry about her. She can manage herself. She got out and met Richard and Rafi in the car.

Rafi: Hi! Ate Maya. Did you sleep ba?

Maya: feeling ko hindi.

Rafi: Excited?

Maya nodded. Then the 3 headed to the airport. Maya still doesn’t have any idea where they were going.

Richard: MAgcheck-in muna tayo saka tayo magbreakfast.

Rafi: Tara Ate Maya.

Maya is looking at the screen. Now, she has the idea where they’re going. A smile flashed on her face.

Richard: You like it?

Maya: MAganda daw dun?

Maya: first time ko. Ikaw ba?

Richard: Actually, me and Rafi this is our second time. Nagustuhan naming kaya when I asked her kung san kami naming dadalhin sya ang nagsuggest nyan. So? Halika na.

Maya smiled at him. She clinged onto his arm where Richard savoring that moment.

Rafi: Nakakainis naman. Bakit ang sweet nyong dalawa?

Ricahrd: MAinggit ka.

Rafi: Kuya ha! Isusumbong kita kay mommy.
