The Auction Chapter 14
“I’m sorry, I am so sorry.” Richard whispered.
She closed her eyes, pilit niyang kinakalimutan kung ano ang nangyari sa party. It must have been due to sheer exhaustion dahil sa mga pangyayari kaya ilang minuto lang ay nakatulog siya.
“I’m sorry, I am so sorry.”
She heard it, Richard is apologizing to her.
Maya stirs on her sleep hugging her pillow tightly. She missed him already. Naramdaman niyang may yumakap din sa kanya, mahigpit. “Maya you’re dreaming. You just miss him.” Saway niya sa sarili. Unti-unti niyang binuksan ang kanyang mga mata at nagulat siya ng makita niyang nasa tabi niya si Richard. He was asleep and it is not her pillow she’s hugging kundi si Richard. She stared at him, studying his eyes, his lips, his jaw everything about him is perfection and she has never loved a man more than she loves him.
Hindi muna siya aalis sa tabi nito. Thinking how right it feels, how natural it is to be beside him.
Soon she again closed her eyes and drifted back to sleep.
She stirs in your arms, moving deeper in the crook of your arms. You carefully kissed her forehead, gawain mo na kasi ito noon pa man. Some habits never die.
Maya soon open her eyes. Richard said nothing… natatakot siya sa mga puwedeng mangyari.
“Good morning.” Si Maya.
“G-good morning.” He replied.
Aktong tatayo si Maya but Richard pulled her in his arms again. Hugging her tightly.
“Magluluto lang ako.”
“Dito ka lang.”
“You need to eat breakfast before you go to work.”
“I already texted Liza, I told her that I’m not going to the office today.” Richard held her even more tightly.
“But I need to eat, nagugutom na ako.” Gusto man niyang makatabi pa ng matagal si Richard pero hindi niya maaaring pabayaan ang sarili na magutom lalo na ngayon na may inaalagaan na siya sa sinapupunan niya.
Labag man sa loob ni Richard ay pinakawalan niya si Maya.
Tumayo si Maya pero nakaramdam siya ng hilo kaya naman napaupo siya ulit sa gilid ng kama. Agad na tumayo si Richard at inalalayan si Maya. “What happened? Masama ba ang pakiramdam mo? Gusto mo dalhin kita sa doctor?”
“N-no, no I’m okay, nabigla lang siguro ako sa pagtayo.”
“I’ll cook for you.”
Nabigla si Maya sa sinabi ni Richard. He never cooks. Naaalala pa niya noon ng masunog nito ang popcorn na dapat ay kakainin nila habang nanonood sa condominium ni Emman. Kung tutuusin microwave na ang gamit nito kaya naman nagulat siya ng magprisinta ito na siya ang magluluto ng agahan nila. Dahil dito ay hindi niya napigilang hindi matawa.
“Why are you laughing?” he felt offended.
“W-wala, ikaw kasi.”
“Ako, bakit ako?” litong tanong ni Richard kay Maya.
“You never cook. Popcorn nga nasusunog mo pa.” Hindi na talaga niya napigilan ang pagtawa.
“Hey don’t laugh at me. What happened before is an accident. Marunong naman akong magluto yun nga lang puro prito. Is that ok with you?”
Prito??? Naiisip pa lang niya ay gusto na niyang masu–. Agad siyang tumakbo sa washroom at doon ay tuluyan ng sumuka.
Agad namang sumunod si Richard, bakas sa mukha nito ang sobrang pag-aalala. He strokes Maya’s back habang sumusuka ito. “Maya we really need to go to the doctor.”
“No I’m okay, ikaw kasi.” Ulit nito habang pinupunasan ang kanyang bibig ng tuwalya.
“What? Ako ulit? Bakit ako ulit?”
“Oo, ikaw. Bakit kasi binabanggit mo yung ganung klase ng luto? Puro mantika yuck.” Diring-diring sabi nito kay Richard.
“E yun lang ang kaya kong lutuin eh.”
“Kaya nga ako na lang ang magluluto.” Pilit niya dito.
“No, after mong mahilo at sumuka sa tingin mo I’ll let you cook pa. Just tell me what you want then I’ll order it for you.” Pinal na sabi ni Richard kay Maya. “So what do you want?”
Medyo matagal itong nag-isip bago sumagot. “Hmmm gusto ko ng pansit, then cake pero gusto ko chocolate cake or cheesecake na lang kaya. Gusto ko rin ng siomai and…” parang batang nagsabi si Maya ng mga gusto niyang kainin kay Richard.
Dahil sa dami ng gustong kainin ni Maya at dahil sa talagang gutom na raw ito, Richard ended up going to the restaurants himself para mas mapabilis ang pagbili sa mga gusto nito. Parang may handaan ng i-prepare na ni Richard ang mga pagkain.
Pagkatapos kumain ay magkatabi silang nagpahinga sa sala.
Nakapikit ang mga mata ni Maya habang si Richard naman ay nagkakape.
“Thank you.” Si Richard.
“For what?” Maya opened her eyes at tiningnan si Richard.
“For giving me a chance to be with you after what happened last night.”
Tahimik lang si Maya, hindi niya alam kung ano ang isasagot kay Richard.
Richard tried to asses his chances, lumapit siya kay Maya. Sa harap nito habang nakaupo ito sa sofa and picked up her hands. She did’nt pull away and he breathed a little easier.
“I’m sorry… sa lahat. For my mother, for what she did to you. Sa lahat ng mga masasakit na sinabi ko sa iyo noon. Sa lahat ng mga maling ginawa ko sa iyo. I’m sorry. Maiintindihan ko kung…”
“Shhh. It was not your fault. Partly it was my fault dahil hindi kita pinaglaban sa mama mo. Kasi at that time akala ko tama yung ginagawa ko. Ginamit ko pa si James para pasakitin ka at hiwalayan ako. Wala kang kasalanan dahil wala ka namang alam.” Paliwanag ni Maya.
“No, it was also my fault ni hindi kita hinanap para kausapin. I just assume na niloloko mo ako. I am so stupid but please Maya please don’t send me away again.”
How can she send him away now? May isang buhay na magagalit sa kanya kapag hindi niya pinaglaban ang ama nito.
“Please.” Ulit ni Richard. He took one of her hands to his chest and let her feel the truth behind his words.
Maya couldn’t help it. She removed her hands from under his and placed them on either side of his face and raised it up so their eyes could meet.
She looks at him tenderly and bends down to give him a gentle kiss.
He closed his eyes in relief and held her tightly. “I love you.” He whispered.
“I love you too.” Si Maya.
Richard kissed her, teasing her lips and soon she opened her mouth to accommodate the kiss. In a matter of seconds they were engaged in a much more passionate kiss. Moaning, Maya lets her head fall back and let Richard trail kisses on her neck, chin and to her shoulder.
“Make love to me… please.” It was Maya.
Upon hearing Maya, Richard opened his eyes at tinitigan niya ito. Gusto niyang masigurado na ito ang gusto ni Maya. This time he wants everything to be perfect, this time gusto niyang klaro ang lahat.
At ng tumungo si Maya, he knows that he never loved any woman in his life more than he loves Maya. Richard scooped her in his arms and went to her room. He laid her on her bed and without words, they understood what to do. In synchrony they both quickly took each other’s clothes off and unceremoniously throws them away.
Then they were kissing again, a kiss of intense heat. Slowly he found her breasts and started massaging it and then covers it with his mouth. She gasped at the touch of his lips and tongue and she couldn’t help but rake his fingernails on his back.
Then he seductively runs his hands up on her thigh and then parts them to stroke between her legs.
She put her trembling hands on his cheeks and gaze into his eyes. “Now..”
Tumungo si Richard and he kissed her again before he positioned himself on top of her.
She met him, thrust by thrust.
This time, no pretentions.
And when they both met their climax, alam nilang wala ng makapaghihiwalay pa sa kanilang dalawa.
He buried his face in her hair while she held him tightly.
“I love you.” Both whispered.
