The Auction Chapter 15

“I love you.” Both whispered.

****************

Nagising si Richard dahil sa liwanag na dala ng papasikat na araw. He slowly opened his eyes and saw Maya on her side curled around him.

He smiled.

He thought that it was all just a dream but it wasn’t. She was really there.

He kissed her then starts nuzzling at her neck. Maya unconsciously arched to accommodate him and she couldn’t help but moan.

He moved on top of her and she felt him.

“R-Richard…”

“Ssshhh.” Richard kissed her full on the lips asking her without words to open up for him which she did. Their tongue dueled, tasting each other. He then went down and gently took one nipple on his mouth. Then he travel way down kissing every inch of her body. Gustong ipadama ni Richard kay Maya how he worship every inch of her. He parted her legs and nuzzle “it” gently with his lips.

Parang mababaliw si Maya sa ginagawa ni Richard. She couldn’t stop her hands from moving on to the back of his head, not knowing if she wanted to push him off or pull him closer to her.

Richard went up to kiss her again while stroking her.

He felt her hands seductively encircling his, gently stroking it.

“M-Maya.”

And when Richard can’t take it anymore, he straddle her and gently lowers himself to her. Holding her hips, he moved in and out of her until she finally matched his rhythm. She match every thrust, arousing him even further.

Once again he kissed her full on the lips and with one last thrust of passion Richard collapse on top of her.

They both felt each other’s heart beat.

Nanatili silang magkayakap, walang gustong bumitiw sa isa’t-isa.

“Marry me.” He suddenly asked.

Maya opened her eyes. Tama ba ang narinig niya? Tiningnan niya si Richard, gusto niyang makita sa mga mata nito kung totoo ang mga sinasabi nito.

“Marry me.” Ulit nito. Richard gently turned her on her back, took her hands and kissed it. “I know I don’t have any ring but please Maya say yes. Marry me.” He asked pleadingly.

Naramdaman na lang ni Maya ang pagtulo ng luha niya. Yes iyakin siya pero bakit hindi. Ito ngayon ang isang Richard Lim, na mula umpisa pa lang ay pinangarap at minahal niya, proposing to her. Wala siyang naisagot kundi tungo lang, yes. For the first time she was speechless.

“Is that a yes? Baby I want to hear it.” Seryosong sabi ni Richard.

“Yes, yes.” Hinawakan niya ang magkabilang pisngi ni Richard at hinalikan ito. “I’ll marry you.”

“Thank you, thank you Maya.” He breathed a sigh of relief. In his heart, he is really thankful. He really thought that Maya will never want to marry him after what he did to her, what his mom did to her.

Richard placed his head on Maya’s chest while she runs her fingers into his hair. Breathing each other’s scent, they were contented.

Ilang sandali pa…

“Richard?”

“Hmmm?”

She thinks it’s time. He needs to know.

Maya took his hand and gently placed it in her tummy. Wanting him to feel the life that is growing inside her.

Richard looked up to her… confused. Pilit niyang inuunawa ang gustong sabihin sa kanya ni Maya when finally he felt the bulge on her stomach.

“Maya???”

Tungo lang ang naisagot ni Maya kay Richard. Hindi niya alam kung ano ang magiging reaksyon nito kaya nagulat na lang siya when he rain kisses on her face and forehead. Pagkatapos nun ay unti-unti itong bumaba sa kanyang tiyan kung saan naroroon ang magiging anak nila. He gently kissed her stomach. “I love you little one.” He said.

And when he looked up to her, she saw his eyes glisten with tears. He buried his face to her hair and whispered to her ear. “I love you so much.”

She held him tightly, “I love you too… so much.” She said.

***************

Sabado ng umaga ng sunduin siya ni Richard para isama sa mansiyon. Ang totoo gustong-gusto na siyang isama ni Richard sa bahay nito Biyernes pa lang pero nanghingi siya ng isang araw para makapaghanda hindi para sa kanyang mga gamit pero para ihanda ang sarili sa muli nilang pagkikita ng mga anak nito.

Alam niyang maraming tanong ang dapat niyang sagutin pero pababayaan niyang si Richard ang makipag-usap sa mga ito. Ang tanging hiling lang niya kay Richard ay huwag ng malaman ng mga ito ang tungkol sa pakikipag-usap ng ina nito sa kanya dalawang taon na ang nakakaraan. Ayaw niyang masira ang relasyon ni Donya Esmeralda sa mga anak ni Richard.

Nasa harap na sila ng mansiyon, puno ng kaba ang dibdib ni Maya. Naramdaman ito ni Richard at agad namang hinawakan ang kamay niya at saka pinisil.

“We can handle this Maya, hinding-hindi kita pababayaan.”

Pilit na ngiti at tungo lang ang naisagot ni Maya.

Pinabayaan niyang igiya siya niya Richard papasok sa loob ng mansiyon.

“Maaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaa!!!” Sila Sabel at Doris. Agad itong lumapit kay Maya para yakapin ito. “Kamusta ka na? Anong nangyari sa’yo? Bakit ngayon ka lang ulit nagpakita?” sunod-sunod na tanong ng dalawang naging matalik na kaibigan na rin naman ni Maya. Tumigil lang ang mga ito ng mapansin si Richard na nasa tabi lang ni Maya.

“S-sorry po Sir.” Si Sabel.

“Na-miss lang po namin si Maya Sir, pasensiya na po.” Si Doris.

“It’s ok. Si Manang Fe?”

“Tinatawag po ang mga bata para sa pananghalian.” Si Sabel ulit.

“Can you please tell her to bring the kids to the office first. Dun na lang namin sila hihintayin ni Maya.” Utos ni Richard sa huli.

“S-sige po Sir Richard.”

“Let’s go Maya.” Richard took Maya’s hand and guided her to the office where they will be waiting for the kids.

****************

“Tita Mayaaa!!!” Si Abby. Ang bunsong anak ni Richard na dati niyang alaga ang unang bumati sa kanya.

“Abby.” Sinalubong ni Maya ng mahigpit na yakap ang pagbati ni Abby. Miss na miss na niya ito.

“Tita Maya, I miss you po. Bakit ngayon lang kayo ulit pumunta dito?” Hindi alam ni Maya kung ano ang isasagot kay Abby. Lalong naumid ang dila niya ng makitang parang naghihintay rin ng sagot niya ang dalawa pang anak ni Richard na sila Luke at Nikki.

“Abby, baby your Tita Maya has to go somewhere kasi and she’s been very busy kaya di siya nakadalaw ulit sa inyo.” Si Richard.

“How convenient. Nawala siya ng two years tapos ngayon babalik siya ng ganun na lang.” si Nikki.

“Nikki!!!” si Luke.

“What Kuya? Don’t tell me maniniwala ka na naman sa babaing yan.”

“Nikki please.” Ulit ni Luke.

Nakita ni Luke kung panong nagpipigil lamang ang ama na huwag magalit sa kapatid niya.

“I won’t eat na. Nawalan na ako ng gana. I’ll go to my room.” Agad na umalis si Nikki at patakbong umakyat papunta sa kuwarto nito.

Aktong susundan ito ni Richard pero maagap na napigilan ni Maya ang huli.

“Luke, Abby aalis na ako…” si Maya.

“You’re not going anywhere Maya. Dito ka lang.” pinal na sabi ni Richard.

“But Richard…”

“Dito ka lang.” ulit nito. “Manang Fe pakihanda na lang po muna ang guest room. Maya will stay here for good.” Hindi lang para kay Manang Fe ang huling sinabi ni Richard pero para na rin sa mga anak na sila Luke at Abby. Maya-maya pa ay hindi na rin napigilan ni Maya ang pagpunta nito sa kuwarto ni Nikki.

“Abby, Luke… sorry.” Hiyang-hiyang sabi ni Maya sa dalawang anak ni Richard.

“Tita Maya pagpasensiyahan mo na si Nikki, nabigla lang yun. You know her naman diba?” paliwanag ni Luke habang niyakap naman siya ulit ni Abby.

Hindi na napigilan ni Maya ang pag-iyak. Mababait talaga ang mga anak ni Richard kahit pa si Nikki. Tama rin naman ang huli, bigla na lang siyang sumulpot after two years kaya hindi na siya nagtataka sa naging reaksyon nito.

Lumapit si Abby at Luke kay Maya para aluin ito. Sa isip ni Luke kung ano man ang nangyari, kung bakit nawala at ngayon ay narito na ang kanyang Tita Maya ay hindi na mahalaga sa kanya. Ang mahalaga ay magiging masaya na ulit ang daddy niya. Nikki will surely understands once his dad explains everything.

At si Manang Fe… tahimik lang na naiiyak na nangingiti habang tinitingnan ang tatlo. Alam man niya ang naging dahilan ni Maya pero wala siya sa posisyon para sabihin ito sa mga bata. Ibibigay na niya kanila Richard at Maya ang desisyong ito. Talagang napakabait ni Maya kaya hindi na siya nagtataka kung bakit ganun na lang kamahal ni Richard ang huli.

*******************

“What is she doing here?” si Nikki.

“She’s going to stay here… for good.”

“What? But dad.”

“Nikki please, no arguments. I love her and I’m going to marry her.”

“No arguments? You’re going to marry her? Lagi na lang ganun, hindi puwedeng magtanong. I know that she did something wrong to you before kaya ka naging cold ulit. Niloko ka ba niya? Nanlalaki ba siya?”

“Nikki!!!” Richard almost slap her daughter dahil sa mga sinasabi nito tungkol kay Maya.

“We accept her pero anong ginawa niya niloko ka lang niya and then now she’s here, bumabalik siya and we need to accept her again.” Tuluyan na itong umiyak at umupo sa gilid ng kama nito.

Lumapit si Richard sa anak para aluin ito.

“Yes Nikki you accepted her but your lola never did.” Alam niyang nangako siya kay Maya but Nikki needs to know. “Your lola talked to her two years ago na layuan ako. Hindi matanggap ng lola mo na dating yaya ni Abby si Maya. Alam ni Mayang hindi ko siya basta-basta lalayuan unless may isang malaking dahilan so she made it appear na pinagsasabay niya kami ni James. After nun lumayo na siya and I am so stupid na hindi ko man lang siya hinanap para kausapin.”

“Dad.” Nikki look stunned. Hindi niya alam kung ano ang iisipin sa mga sinasabi ng ama.

“I am so sorry kung naging cold ako ulit as your father pero walang kasalanan si Maya she just wanted to protect me at ang relasyon namin ng lola mo.” Tumayo si Richard. “If you cannot accept her this time then wala kaming magagawa. I will let her stay in another house but I will still marry her.”

“Dad…”

“I love her Nikki. She always wants what’s best for us na minsan nakakalimutan na niya ang sarili niya.” A tremble on his voice.

“Dad…”

Tumayo si Richard at aktong lalabas na ng kuwarto ni Nikki.

“Dad, sorry.” Nikki hugged his dad from behind. “Bakit ba lagi na lang akong kontrabida when it comes to your happiness?”

Hinarap ni Richard ang anak at ngumiti. “Dahil nagmana ka sa akin. You only want what’s good for me.” And then again he hugs his daughter.

“Dad I need to say sorry to Tita Maya as in big time.” Ilang saglit pa ay sabi ni Nikki.

“Thank you Niks pero she needs to rest muna baka mapano ang magiging kapatid ninyo.”

“Whaaat!!! Is she? OMG… is she???”

“Yes she’s pregnant so kung mag-sosorry ka sa kanya you can do it later because she needs to eat and rest first ok.”

“OMG Kuya and Abby needs to know… everybody needs to know.” Ang tuwang-tuwang sabi ni Nikki sa ama.

***********************

Nagulat na lang sila Luke at Abby ng bigla na lang parang nag-iba ang hangin pagkatapos kausapin ng kanilang ama si Nikki. Hindi nag-aksaya ng panahon si Nikki para ipaalam sa lahat ang kalagayan ni Maya. Nangako din ito sa ama na hangga’t maaari ay huwag ng sabihin sa dalawa pa nitong kapatid ang dahilan ng paglayo ni Maya two years ago.

Matapos kumain ng tanghalian ay agad nag-bake ng cookies si Nikki kasama ang kapatid na si Abby. She went to the guest room dala ang kanyang baked cookies. Puno ng kabang kumatok ito sa pintuan ng kuwarto kung nasaan si Maya.

Maya-maya pa ay bumukas ang pinto at bumungad ang kanyang Tita Maya.

“T-tita Maya… s-sorry.” Hawak ang baked cookies ay naiiyak niyang sabi sa kanyang Tita Maya.

Wala siyang narinig ng kung ano man kay Maya. Ngumiti ito at agad siyang niyakap.

Immediately she knows why her dad love this woman… why her daddy loves her Tita Maya.

**********************

One month later…

“Dad, kalma lang po.” Si Luke.

It was Richard’s second time pero parang una pa rin, andun pa rin ang kaba. Ni hindi niya masunod ang sinasabi ng anak na kumalma siya.

Bakit hindi, ang araw na pinakahihintay nila pareho ay dumating na. Finally, it is their wedding day.

Katabi ni Richard ang kanyang ama at ina.

Si Donya Esmeralda na kusang pumunta ng mansiyon ng malamang andun si Maya upang humingi ng tawad sa huli at pati na rin kay Richard. Inamin nitong nagkamali ito at sising-sisi sa mga nagawa sa dalawa. Nung una ay ayaw pang kausapin ni Richard ang ina, masyado pang masama ang loob niya sa nagawa nito kay Maya. But Maya insisted that he should forgive his mother. Sinabi nitong hindi magiging tama ang isang bagay kung ang isang mali ay gagawan pa ng isang mali. You really cannot argue with Maya.

Ngayon nga ay kasama nila ang kanilang pamilya at mga kaibigan para sa napaka-importanteng araw na ito.

Richard is waiting patiently for his bride.

And then there she is… so beautiful and elegant with her lace and satin wedding-gown.

Richard smiled but at the same time pinipigilan din niya ang luha niya. Maya is already showing.

As soon as Maya reached the end of the aisle, Richard reached out for her and held her hand. He thanked her parents for entrusting her to him.

They proceed to the altar. With entwined hands, they said their vows.

It was a very solemn wedding.

And when it was finally over…

They kissed.

Richard whispered to her. “Forever Maya.”

“Forever Richard, forever Ser Chief.” Maya smiled.

And then they kiss again.

The End

Author’s Note….

To my dear readers,

Thank you so much for accompanying me on this journey. Pasensiya na po kung madalas ay matagal masundan ang bawat chapter dahil tulad ng kuwentong ito may mga twist and turn din po ang realidad ko. But because of your patience nagawa kong tapusin ang naumpisahan ko and I am so proud of myself. Masasabi kong may isang parte ng buhay ko na hindi ako naging intro-girl (meaning mahilig mag-umpisa ng isang bagay pero hindi tinatapos).

Thank you for all the comments and messages, hindi n’yo lang po alam kung gaano ako kasaya kapag nakikita kong may comments from the readers kahit sabihin pang isang simpleng katagang “BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNN” ang laman ng mensahe.🙂

My love for JOCHARD made me want to write again kumbaga para silang gasolina pinapaikot nila ang makinarya ng imahinasyon ko (hmmm lalim).

Again, maraming-maraming salamat po.

Lovelots,

-roxygirl5-

Cold as Ice-cream but STILL as Sweet🙂
