Galit na galit ako sa tatay ko ngayon. He’s so selfish. Naiinis ako. Bakit ganon. Mas pinapahalagahan niya pa yung tang inang sasakyan na yan kesa sa buhay ng nanay ko at kapatid ko. Ngayon lang ako nagalit sa tatay ko ng ganito. Nakakainis. Hindi ko malaman kung ano ba tong nararamdaman ko sa dibdib ko ngayon pero nang hihina ako. Ang sakit ng ulo ko sa galit. Ngayon ko lang hindi natiis galit ko. Nakasapak tuloy ako ng ibang tao ng wala sa oras. Tang inang buhay to. Badtrip.

Hi ate. Pano mo nakaya lahat? Ako kasi parang susuko na ako. Galit parents ko sakin dahil buntis ako ngayon. Tapos ayaw pa nila ako makipagkita sa tatay ng magiging anak ko. Tapos parang feeling ko nagiisa ako dahil feeling ko wala akong kaibigan. PANO PAAAAANO :( ayoko magpakilala madami mapanghusga sa mundong ibabaw

Helloooo. Pinilit ko lang lahat kayanin para kay Drake. Nako, kung alam mo lang pinagdaanan ko anon. Hay! Anyway.. Sa una talagang magagalit parents natin. Kasi masakit para sakanila na hindi natupad ang pangarap o gusto nila para sakanilang anak. Kaya hayaan mo nalang muna sila. Mahirap, oo. Pero you need to face the consequences. Pero diba, it’s never too late to make things right. Kaya chin up girl! Soon, matatanggap din ng parents mo magiging anak mo. You just need to wait for the perfect time. Pusta ko, sila pa mangungunang tuwang tuwa sa baby mo. Ganyan ako noon. Ang believe me, mapapangiti ka nalang pag natapos na lahat.

Sa tatay naman ng magiging anak mo, kung hindi pa siya tanggap ng parents mo ngayon, payo ko lang na wag siyang sumuko sa pagpapakita sa parents mo kung gano ka niya kamahal at kayang panindigan. Ipakita niya na worth it siya na hindi totoo lahat ng sinasabi ng parents mo.

You’ll get through it, promise. I know how hard it is pero kailangan mo lakasan loob mo. Isipin mo muna anak mo sa loob. Dapat lumabas siyang healthy. Okay? Wag mo munang isipin friends mo kung di mo mahagilap ngayon. Basta ang importante safe kayo ng baby mo. Alagaan mo sarili mo. Ha! Mwa!!

Thinking about it, maswerte pa pala ako kasi bata pa ako nung naghiwalay parents ko. Hindi ko pa alam yung sakit. Hindi ko pa alam kung gaano ako kalapit sa papa ko. Wala akong nare-reminisce na good memories na dapat kong paglamayan. Pero ang malas ko kasi di ko naranasan or naramdaman yung mga bagay na yon. Na minsan hinihiling ko, sana naramdaman ko rin. Sana naaalala ko kung gaano kami kasaya nung buo pa kami. Sana naaalala ko kung gaano niya kami minahal. Sana naaalala ko yung pagiging tatay niya. Kaso hindi. Wala akong ibang alam. Kaya galit na galit ako sa kanya.

anonymous asked:

Lalaki sya. Nilalandi nya ko before tapos nung tnry ko iclarify ang mga bagay. Sabi lang nya. "Hindi pa ako ready sa relationship. Naglaro lang kami ng ex ko." "Gusto kita pero hindi kita kayang alagaan. Kaya friends nalang tayo." "I care about you. Ayaw kitang masaktan." Then, i just stopped talking to him. Bat ganun manlalandi sila tapos biglang ganyan?

Galit na galit ako sa guy na yun as in poot. Frinendzone nya ko after landiin at paasahin. Bnlock ko syang fb, tas after 2weeks nag text sya bat ko daw yun gnwa (Uhmm duuh tinanong mo pa?). Tas sabe ko nalang, nafafall ako and i know you dont feel the same way kaya lumalayo ako. Tas sabi nya, sana talaga pwede tayong maging magkaibigan. Tapos hnd ko na pinansin hanggang sa mga susunod pang pagttext nya. Gusto ko syang gantihan, gusto ko syang magdusa. Kaso hindi ko alam kung paano?

—————–
Alam mo, Anon. Kesa mag-isip ka ng ways to avenge your feelings para sa guy na lumandi sayo, wag mo nalang kausapin at iblock mo yung number niya sa phone mo kase it will just be a waste of your time at wala ka ding mapapala kahit makaganti ka. Kaya may mga taong ganyan, kase gusto nilang maging confident sa sarili nila sa ways na unfair. Alam mo yun? Gusto nilang pumogi sa sarili nilang pagtingin. Kaya gumagamit sila ng tao to make them look good and cool. Ang gawin mo, disiplinahin mo yung sarili mo na wag nang mag reply sakanya kase clearly, naglalaro lang siya. Hindi mo na dapat ginagantihan yung mga kagaya niya, okay? Ingat!

THAT THING CALLED “PAASA”

Noong bata pa ako galit na galit ako sa mama ko kapag sinabihan n’ya ‘yung saleslady sa isang mall na babalikan na lang n’ya yung laruan na gusto ko tapos wala naman pala talaga s’yang balak balikan. Uuwi nanaman akong luhaan. Isang malaking PAASA nanaman.

Grabe pala ano? bata palang tayo na meet na natin si Paasa. Simula noon hindi na s’ya nawala sa tabi natin. Tulad noong: 

  • Akala mo aalis kayong pamilya para mamasyal, yun pala hindi na tuloy
  • Kapag naman natuloy, nagbihis ka pa ng maganda ‘yun pala hindi ka kasama
  • Kapag dumating na sila galing mall at madami silang dala akala mo may pasalubong ka, ‘yun pala wala naman talaga.
  • Kapag may pasalubong ka naman, pagtingin mo hindi ito ‘yung binilin mo o kaya hindi ito ‘yung gusto mo.
  • Kahit sa loob ng ref makikita mo s’ya e, yung akala mo ice cream pag bukas mo isda pala.
  • O kaya pagbukas mo ng ref, puro tubig lang naman pala.
  • Nag text ‘yung kaibigan mo otw na daw s’ya, ‘yun pala kagigising pa lang n’ya.
  • Nag text ‘yung crush mo, crush ka rin daw n’ya, teka, wrong send lang daw pala.

Puro heartaches at disappointments na lang nakukuha natin kapag nag e-expect tayo sa isang bagay na gusto nating mangyari pero hindi ito naabot ng satisfaction mong maarte sa katawan. Bakit ‘yung mga inaasahan natin ‘yun pa yung hindi nangyayari? Dahil lagi na na lang nating pinapangunahan ang lahat kaya ang resulta nasasaktan tayo. Hindi natin maiiwasang mag expect sa mga bagay na makakapagpasaya sa’tin. Tapos sa huli masasabi mo na lang. Tangina paasa nanaman. 

Midnight Memories

(Note: This one shot has nothing to do with One Direction’s song. Please.)

In sixty minutes, the year would end and another one would begin. It meant a new and fresh start for everyone as well as for Elmo.

His family decided to welcome the new year in his condo unit since it was more convenient for them because of their job requirements than to celebrate in Antipolo. As his siblings started the countdown together, he preferred to go to the rooftop of the building and do his own countdown. It was the best place to watch the fireworks, anyway. But when he finally got there, he realized it was the last place he wanted to be. The place just held a painful memory to him.

“Oh, Elmo. Nandito ka pala..” He heard a voice he knew by heart spoke from his side. He glanced at his left and saw the girl that was once the love of his life. She was sitting on the floor where she laid a blanket to lie on.

“Hi, Julie,” he greeted her. “Dito kaya maganda manood ng fireworks mamaya,” he said by a way of explanation for his presence.

She smiled at him but he noticed it didn’t reach her beautiful eyes. “I know. We were here together exactly a year ago when…” She trailed.

He didn’t want to dwell on the memory so he just ignored it. “Ang bilis ng panahon. New Year na naman. Ang daming nangyari ‘no?”

She patted the space next to hers, gesturing him to sit beside her. They were still friends after all. They remained good friends even after what happened last year.

“I know! 2013 has been a roller coaster ride for me,” she answered, lying her back on the blanket and staring at the night sky. “For us…” She added.

“It’s been a year,” he suddenly blurted out before he could even stop himself. He realized that it couldn’t be helped to bring the topic up since it was only the two of them and they were on the same spot where their sudden break up happened. Before she could even react, he spoke again. “Namiss kita ah, ngayon lang ata tayo nagkasama ng tayong dalawa lang.”

“Ikaw kasi eh. Kasalanan mo—”

“Ako na naman? Inaaway mo na naman ako ah,” he teased. And just like that, the tension between them was lifted and they were back to being JUST friends. It had always been like that between them. And it was one of the things he loved about her.

She pouted in a way he had always found irresistable. He would’ve kissed her right there at that moment, but things were different now with them. “Hindi naman eh, sorry na,” she said.

“Okay lang, sanay naman ako na lagi kang galit sa akin,” he answered, shaking his head as he tried to make her feel guilty.

She just laughed at him. “Yung totoo, wala ka man lang happy memories sa akin ‘no?” Julie asked. “Puro bad lang ata eh.”

“Hindi ah. Siyempre merong happy memories yan!”

“Sige nga, give me five?” She said, challenging him.

“Ikaw muna.”

“Ang daya..” She said, pouting again. “Pero sige,” she conceded. He chuckled at her reaction.

She sat up and looked around as she started recalling their happy times, after a few seconds she returned her gaze to him then spoke, “First, it was those nights when you would call me then magssoundtrip lang tayo over the phone. Hanggang makatulog ako.” She smiled fondly at the memory.

Elmo snorted. “May nakahanda akong different playlists nun palagi eh! Effort ko kaya.”

She smiled softly at him and he suddenly remembered the old times. It made his heart ache a bit at the memory. “I know. And I really loved those times. Next, those times when would just stay up all night to play Would-You-Rather and 20 Questions. Those were really fun to play with you!” She exclaimed as she started to laugh.

“I sucked at those games..” He said, sulking like a child.

“Yep,” she agreed, winking at him. “Napaamin nga kita na crush mo ako since day 1 di ba?” She giggled as she teased him.

This kind of conversation would have been awkward for most of the ex couples but they were not most of them. Their relationship had been different and far more special from the beginning. Even if it didn’t really work out so well and things had been different now, they still managed to save the special part of their relationship: the friendship.

He just rolled his eyes at her. “Yeah right, whatever. Go on.”

“You enjoy this, huh?”

“Yes. Next please?” He was eager to know her happiest memories of him so he didn’t want to waste another minute.

“Third… Hmm, well that one night when you drunk called me,” she said, trying to stifle a smile but failed.

Elmo groaned and buried his face in his hands. “Oh, please! I don’t want to talk about it…” He complained, shaking his head.

“But it was a happy memory!” Julie protested, giggling. “If you didn’t drunk call me, hindi sana naging tayo for four years. You professed your love to me on the freaking phone! And you made me admit it to myself that I loved you, too,” she added.

“Nagbreak pa din naman tayo,” he joked but he realized there was nothing funny about his own joke. He suddenly wanted to punch himself.

Her giggles faded and she smiled sadly, refusing to look at him. “Sad but true,” she let out sigh and went on. “Okay, fourth! It would be every night of our monthsary when you would sing a song to me, kahit sinasabi mong ang pangit ng boses mo at sintunado kang kumanta. Kinakantahan mo pa din ako.”

He laughed when he remembered those nights. At first, he didn’t really want to do it but it was one of those things that would really make her happy. So he was more than willing to do sing. Just for her. “Those were the days—err, I mean, nights.”

“I’d fallen deeper in love with you because of that, you know,” she whispered, smiling as she looked in his eyes. She looked like she was just thinking exactly what was on his mind.

“I know,” he smiled back at her. He then cocked an eyebrow and asked, “So ano yung last?”

Her smile broke into a wide grin like she was really feeling giddy and answered without thinking. “Those random nights when you would sneak in my bedroom window just to kiss me on the forehead while I sleep.”

“Oh.” That was all he could let out from his mouth.

Her answer caught him off guard. He never knew she was aware of those times. It was those nights when he would suddenly miss her terribly. So he would drive from his home to hers in the middle of those nights and would sneak in her bedroom window since he knew she always left it open. She knew that all along?

“Yep,” she answered his unspoken thoughts. She was still smiling and gazing at him like the way she used to. Like she was in love with him, still. “So, your turn!”

He took a deep breath, stared at her then spoke. “Fine. First, it was the day when I met you.”

“Ang cheesy—”

“Second, when we became friends and got close to each other,” he said quickly, cutting her off.

“Ano ba yan—”

Before she could even further react, “Shut up. Third, when I realized I’m in love with you,” he said in a low voice.

“Moe..” She whispered, speechless. Though her eyes told him everything that words can never tell. They were reflecting his own emotions.

He continued as he gazed at her longingly. “Fourth, when you told me you loved me, too.”

Just when she looked like she already found her voice and the words to say, he spoke again, not letting her speak. “You know what’s fifth?” She shook her head.

He let out a sigh and shifted his gaze to the sky. “It was every moment I’m with you. Even the bad ones were still happy ones for me because they were with you.”

“Elmo..” He heard her whisper. She reached for his hand and he let her take it. In fact, he’d been dying to hold her hand since he got there.

She gave his hand a squeeze as he looked back at her. “You want a sixth?” She shook her head again like she couldn’t take any more revelations but he ignored her. “Sixth is you.”

He noticed that they were now sitting closer to each other than earlier. Her eyes were glassy and he realized that she was in the verge if crying. He suddenly felt the need to hold her in his arms. So he gave in to his need and pulled her into his lap, wrapping his arms tightly around her.

She hugged her back and silently sobbed on the crook of his neck. She didn’t even try to speak and just waited for him to continue. “I can’t seem to get you off my mind… Everything about you makes me happy.”

She pulled back and they stared at each other. Just savoring that moment as they were finally back into each other’s arms. “Even in the last twelve months that we weren’t together anymore, you still made me happy. Because of those memories,” he confessed, his voice full of emotions.

They say that if two past lovers can remain just friends, it’s either they are still in love, or never were.

In his case, his feelings for her never changed. He was still deeply, madly and crazily in love with her. Maybe she still was too, he was not sure though, until she spoke.

“We never really strayed far from each other, huh?” She whispered, closing her eyes as she touched her forehead to his.

Then the sky began to light up with different and bright colors. They looked up and watched the fireworks welcome the new year. And in that moment, they knew it was time to leave behind the past but they would bring those midnight memories—including that midnight—with them as they start their new beginning.

PS. This one’s dedicated to bauistik! Advance Happy New Year! ♥

THE EMOTICON TRAGEDY

Mahilig akong maglagay ng emoticon kapag nagchachat ako. Para damang-dama ng kausap ko yung presensya ko at para kita niya yung reaksyon ko sa mga kinekwento niya ganun. Pero ang hindi ko lang maintindihan ay kung bakit sa dinami-dami ng characters sa keyboard, talagang pinagdikit pa ang “(” at “)”. Pwede namang sa magkabilang dulo ng keyboard. Pero bakit pinagdikit? Lagi na lang kasi akong nagkakamali ng pindot.

In example,

Siya: Wag ka ng magpapakita o magttxt o magpaparamdam sa'kin kahit kelan! Galit na galit ako sa'yo!

Me: Okay. :)

Siya: Nang-aasar ka ba?! 

Friend: Pre, nabalitaan mo na ba? Ninakawan pala si Pareng Bogart kagabi.

Me: Tsk. Kalungkot naman yun pre. :)

Friend: Alam mo, napakainsensitive mo!

Friend: Uyy pare. Kami na! Sinagot na niya ako! <3

Me: Ayos yan pre. :(

Friend: Tangina?? May feelings ka para sa'ken pre?!

Friend: Bakit ngayon mo lang sinabi. 

Friend. Minahal din kita pre. </3

Friend: Pre, di ko na kaya. Papakamatay na ako!!!

Me: Wag! :)

Friend: Ok. Paalam…

Me: Ay puta. Mali!

Me: Huuuy!!

Me: Pre!

Me: Pre??? 

End of story.

SI ALENG KASING LIIT NG IPIS

Nakakainis yung batang kapitbahay namin. Siguro nasa mga edad 3 years old yun. Batang babae na kung umasta ay parang 46 years old Kasing liit siya ng ipis, seriously. At yun ang tingin ko sa kanya. At kagaya ng ipis, siya ang kontrabida ng buhay ko.

Kapag lumalabas ako sa gate ng bahay namin, malayo pa lang nakikita ko siyang nakaupo in a pa-sexy position na kala mo ang haba-haba ng legs. At saktong pag tumatapat ako sa bahay nila, bigla na lang yung sumisigaw ng “Suplado!!!!” na para talagang tunog ng kulisap.

Anlaki kaya ng atraso nun saken. Kabilin-bilinan kase ng inay ko, wag daw akong aalis ng bahay kapag wala siya. Pero hindi ko mapigilan na palihim na umalis ng bahay sa dahilang gusto kong ipalaganap ang pagmamahalan sa buong daigdig. Pero palagi pa ring nalalaman ng inay na umaalis ako ng bahay dahil sinusumbong pala ako ng batang yun. Hinaharang niya ang inay para lang sabihin na “Umalis na naman yung napakagaling niyong anak.” At siyempre, in a boses kulisap way na naman. Kaya galit na galit ako sa batang yun. Gusto ko siyang tirisin ng pinong-pino sa Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Kahapon, 2 days after ng Pasko, sabi ko sa sarili ko magiging mabait na ako dun at kalilimutan ko na yung mga masasamang ginawa niya saken.

“Hi!”, sabi ko.

Pero bigla niyang tinataas yung damit niya at ipinakita yung panty niya saken. Pinakyuhan niya lang ako. Kamusta naman yun di ba? 

A Scene from the Agham Road demolition, Photo credits sa Yahoo.

Ok, layo muna tayo sa Vhong Issue dahil nakaka umay na makita sa balita at siguradong panalo na siya sa kaso ayon sa CCTV.

What can I say about this Demolition Thingy~?

Nung bata pa ako. Kapag nakikita ko ang mga pulis na sinisira ang bahay ng kapitbahay namin ( dahil nakatira kami sa squatters area dati. swerte lang kami dahil yung lupa na natayuan ng bahay namin eh sa Lola namin pero hindi naiiba ang bahay namin sa kanila ). Eh awang awa ako sa mga kapitbahay namin at galit na galit ako sa mga Pulis. Kasi nakikita ko na bahay nila yun eh. Bakit sinisira nung mga Pulis? Isang tanong ng bata na walang kamalay malay sa paligid niya. Pati nung nagka-isip ako. Kapag may nakikita akong balita sa TV. Galit na galit ako sa mga pulis. Kasi nakikita kong binabatuta, pinapalo, sinasakal, at ginagamitan ng dahas ang mga tao.

Edi syempre nag bibirthday din ako. So tumanda na naman ako. So nagka isip na naman ako. Na realize ko na kaya siguro nagagawa ng pulis yun eh may ginawa sigurado yung mga Informal Settler na masama. Na may mga protocol ang pulis na kapag nadaan sa magandang usapan eh walang mangyayari na masama. 

Then hindi ko akalain na ma-eexperience namin to. At kami na mismo yung may ari ng lupa na tinirhan na din ng squatters area. Hindi ko akalain na dadating sa point kailangan na namin pumunta sa mga Hearing at may mga abogado pa kami. Ano pinag lalaban namin? Yung lupa. Nasa amin yung titulo at binili namin yung lupa. Pero ayaw maniwala nung mga tao dun. So nanalo kami sa kaso laban sa lupa.

For me, once na andun ka na. Dun mo palang maiintindihan. Parang ang hirap nga naman sa may-ari ng lupa na makikita mong binili mo yun at pinaghirapan mo yung perang pinambili mo dun eh titirhan lang ng mga squatter. Wala eh, mayayabang yung ibang mga nasa squatter at akala mo kanila talaga ang lupa. Ang problem din kasi eh hindi sila gumagawa ng paraan para magka pera o makahanap man lang ng trabaho. Naging squatter din ang Pamilya namin. At naranasan ko maging Squatter. Tumira sa hindi mo sariling lupa. Akala ko dati ok lang yun. Pero dahil nagsikap ang mga magulang ko. Andito na kami sa buhay ngayon na masasabi nating hindi na magugutom. Makakakain kung kailan gusto. At nagawa ng magulang ko yun na hindi umaasa sa Gobyerno.

Feel ko yun ang problema ng Pilipinas sa mga informal settlers ngayon. Sinukuan na nila ang buhay at kinakalaban na lagi ang Gobyerno. Na akala nila once na nag elect sila ng Presidente eh magiging okay yung presidente na yun once na pinayaman sila o binigyan sila ng Pera. Nope, hindi ganun yun mga kababayan. Kailangan mag sikap talaga at maging madiskarte sa buhay. Nakita kong ginawa ng magulang ko yun. Yung pagmamahal nila sa anak nila at disiplina ang nagdala sa amin kung nasaan kami ngayon. Sinamahan pa namin ng pagtitiwala sa Diyos kaya nagkaroon parents ko ng lakas para lumaban nang lumaban. Hindi pwedeng iaabot sayo ng Gobyerno ang pera at gagastusin mo. Ang role ng Gobyerno eh pagandahin ang Pilipinas at hindi ang buhay niyo. Sabi nga eh, pare parehas lang tayo nagtatrabaho. Pero hindi naman maikakaila na corrupt talaga ang Gobyerno natin sa Pilipinas. Pero hindi ibig sabihin nun eh wala ka ng magagawa. Meron. Kahit sino pa ang presidente dyan. Ikaw ang gagawa ng sarili mong buhay. Kahit sino pa mahalal dyan. Wala silang maitutulong sayo kundi yung benefits nung program nila. 

Hindi Gobyerno ang tutulong sayo. Sarili mo.

Grounded!

Ayun! Haaaays! Umiyak pa si mama ng konti habang pinapagalitan ako kasi di ako nagrereply kasi tinatanong ako kung nasan na daw ako, eh ang gagawin ko magrereply ako pag malapit na ako sa bahay. Ayun, iyak din ako kasi once in a blue moon lang din magmura si papa eh nakakatakot. Kasalanan ko naman eh, di ako nagpaalam, pero kasi di ako papayagan eh organizer ako. Basta! Medyo magaan na loob ko ngayon. Kanina talaga, galit galit mga tao dito sa bahay. Haaays! Para sa ikakasaya nyo, ganun ko kamahal taemu. Taemu nyong lahat! Haha!

MY PRINCE-SS CHARMING

Chapter 15

Kung nakakamatay lang ang selos, siguro ay nakalibing at inaagnas na siya ngayon dahil sa nakikita niya.

“Oh.” Maqui said sabay abot ng bottled water sa kanya.

Nasa beach sila early in the morning dahil sa pagyayaya ni Julie na manuod ng beach volleyball match daw ni Toffer. Ayaw sanang sumama ni Elmo but then, he worries that Julie would again wear another skimpy swimsuit at paniguradong magpipiyesta nanaman ang mga mata ng mga kalalakihan doon.

“Does she have to sit at the very front of the bleachers?” he asked, annoyed.

“Haha. Bakit ba? Eh she wants to support her friend.” Maqui replied.

“Yeah. Ikaw ha? Superdupermajorbigtime higpit mo kay bff ha. Bawat galaw kailangan knows mo?” natatawang tanong ni Sef.

“Ts. Friends my ass. Friends ba yung kung makakapit akala mo in just a snap mawawala yung guy?! Hindi naman siya ganyan sa akin ah!” he said.

“Hahaha. Eh bakit naman siya gaganitey sayo eh diba nga beki ka?” mataray na sagot ni Sef. “Wag ka nga mareklamo over there. Eh kung di mo ginalit yan, may chance siguro na kayong dalawa lang always and forever clingy to each other!” dagdag pa nito.

“Oh please.” he said and rolled his eyes.

Nagsimula na ang volleyball game at naghiyawan na ang mga tao. Cheering and yelling for their chosen players.

“Go Toffer!!!” sigaw nina Maqui at Sef.

“Toffee, you can do it!” rinig naman niyang sigaw ni Julie. Ngumiti si Toffer sa kanila and even waved at Julie bago siya nagserve ng bola.

Badtrip na badtrip na si Elmo dahil ang tingin niya ay OA na ang ginagawa ni Julie.

“Ts. I’m going to eat breakfast at the shack. Sama kayo?” he asked nang makitang tumatalon-talon si Julie at nagchicheer pa.

“Naah. Sasabay na kami kay Julie and Toffer kumain.” Sef answered.

“Suit yourselves.” he said saka na umalis sa maingay na part ng beach na iyon. Naglakad na siya papunta sa breakfast shack just a few meters away from the crowded part of the beach.

“Good morning sir!” bati nung cook na nasa likod ng counter.

“Hi. I’ll have waffles with bacon and egg. Then I’ll have the freshly squeezed orange juice.” sabi niya. Tumango na ang cook at saka na niya hinanda ang pagkain ni Elmo.

“Here you go sir.” sabi ng cook after 15 minutes. “Mukhang bago kayo dito sir ah.” the cook said to him.

“Ha? Ah yeah. Vacation lang for 3 or 4 days.” he replied.

“Sabi na eh. Ngayon ko lang kasi kayo nakita sir eh.”

“Haha. Yeah. Ngayon lang nagkatime eh.” he said.

“Ah. Enjoy kayo sir. Madaming party sa beach na to. Party goer kasi yung may-ari eh.”

“Really? Kaya pala. Sino ba may-ari nito?” he asked.

“Ayun po oh. Yung naglalaro ng volleyball. Si Sir Toffer.”

*****

Sobrang pagod na pagod si Julie kakacheer kay Toffer. Ang galing kasi nitong maglaro ng volleyball and because of that ay panalo sila ng partner niya.

“Wow!! You’re so great, Toffee!” Julie said to him after the game.

“Thanks Julie. Uy, thank you sa friends mo ha. They cheered for us.” sabi naman nito.

“You’re welcome. Sayang di nagstay yung cousin ko. Nagutom eh. Haha.” Maqui said.

“Ay sayang. Anyway. You guys want to have brunch? Our treat.” sabi ni Toffer sabay tango sa gawi ng kaibigan nito. “Oh yeah. By the way this is Zig. My brother.” sabi niya.

“Hi! I’m Maqui.” pakilala naman ni Maqui.

“Sef.” sabi naman ni Sef while shaking Zig’s hand.

“Bro, this is Julie. Siya yung may-ari nung largest villa sa Oceana St.” Toffer said.

“Hi. Nice meeting you guys.” sabi ni Zig sabay kaway sa mga ito.

“Tara? Let’s go to the breakfast shack.” pagyaya nito sa kanila. They went to the shack and ordered food.

“Psst. Julieta!” Sef whispered as he called Julie.

“Bakit?” tanong niya pagtingin kay Sef.

“Look over there oh!” pagnguso nito sa isang nakaupo sa bar counter.

Paglingon ni Julie ay nakita niya si Elmo na mag-isang nakaupo sa bar stool habang abala sa pagbabasa ng newspaper.

“Kanina pa siya dun?” Julie whispered to Sef.

“Yup. Before the first set was done, umalis na siya. So feeling ko he’s been there for like what? 3 or 4 hours?” sagot naman ni Maqui na nasa kabilang gilid niya.

“Really? Eh bakit hindi siya nanuod ng game?” Julie asked. Nagkibit-balikat lang naman si Maqui at Sef. “Uhm. Excuse me lang ha.” she said sabay tayo.

Naglakad siya palapit kay Elmo and sat next to him.

“Hey.” she said. Tiningnan siya saglit nito tsaka nagbalik ng tingin sa newspaper na binabasa. “Uhm.”

“I’m not interested in joining you guys.” he said.

“Ah. Uhm. Swimming tayo later?” she asked.

“Is Tofu coming?” he asked. Julie rolled her eyes bago tumingin kay Elmo.

“It’s Toffer and yes he’s coming. Niyayaya niya tayo mag-island hopping.” she said.

“Ts.”

“Dali na Moe. Sama ka na sa amin. You haven’t enjoyed our stay here.” she said.

“I’ll think about it. Ayoko makasama ang lalaking yun.” matabang na sabi ni Elmo.

“Why? Are you jealous?” she asked na kinikilig sa iniisip niya.

“No. I just don’t like the way he looks at you. Para kang gagahasain.” he said sabay tupi sa dyaryo at tumayo. “Kapag sinipag akong sumama sa inyo, sasama ako. Pero I doubt that I’ll come with you as long as he is with you guys. Excuse me.” he said saka na umalis sa breakfast shack.

*****

Nakaupo si Elmo sa beach chair na dala niya while he reads a book. Paminsan-minsan ay sumusulyap siya kanila Maqui, Julie at Sef na nagkakatuwaan sa paliligo sa dagat. They’re calling him to come and swim with them pero umiiling siya.

“Elmo!!! Tara na dito! Ang KJ mo forever!” sigaw ni Maqui sa kanya.

“You guys just enjoy!” he yelled back. Binalik na niya ang tingin sa libro niya.

Maya-maya ay nagulat siya when he felt water droplets on his face and maging sa libro niya. Pag-angat niya ng tingin ay nakatayo si Julie sa harap niya, dripping wet.

“Aren’t you gonna swim?” she asked. Hindi pa man siya nakakasagot ay hinatak na siya ni Julie papunta sa dagat.

“Julie ano ba!” he yelled.

“Bawal KJ dito, Elmo. Kaya magswimming ka!” she yelled back habang tatawa-tawa pa.

Nang makarating sila sa dagat ay agad na binasa nila Maqui at Sef si Elmo. Tawa naman nang tawa si Julie.

“Ano ba! Stop!” he yelled.

“Hindi! Enjoy tayo ditey!” Sef laughed. Julie joined in getting him wet habang tawa sila nang tawa na tatlo.

“STOOOOOP!!” Elmo shouted. Tumigil naman ang tatlo sa pambabasa sa kanya.

“KJ ano ba yan.” iritang sabi ni Julie tsaka na naglakad palayo.

“Bff! Wherelaloo ka?” Sef asked.

“I’m going to look for Toffer. Baka pwede na niya kong isakay sa jetski niya. I don’t want to stay here with that KJ person.” iritang sabi niya saka na nagpatuloy sa paglalakad.

Elmo looked at Maqui and Sef na masama ang tingin sa kanya.

“What?”

“A little fun won’t hurt Elmo. Psh. Let’s go, Sef.” Maqui said sabay irap sa kanya at naglakad na sila para sundan si Julie.

*****

“Oh. Bakit nakasimangot ka?” Toffer asked her nang makalapit ito sa kanya.

“Wala.” tipid niyang sagot.

“Si Elmo no?” he asked. Tumingin lang naman si Julie sa kanya tsaka napabuntung-hininga.

“Eh kasi naman eh. Ang KJ masyado. Parang magsswimming lang eh. Buti nga niyayaya ko pa siya. Ako na gumagawa ng move para ipaalam sa kanya na hindi na ko galit. Ako na nagpapahiwatig na okay na uli kami na pwede na uli kami maging sweet sa isa’t isa. Tapos siya tong nag-iinarte na parang tanga diyan. Hay! Badtrip!” reklamo niya. Tumawa lang naman si Toffer. “Why are you laughing?” she asked, annoyed.

“Haha. Eh ang cute mo kasi. Alam mo, feeling ko kaya ganyan siya kasi he’s jealous sa ating dalawa. Ayaw mo ba nun? Effective yung gusto mong mangyari?”

“Toffee, ang OA niya. Ang OA niya!!!”

“Hahaha. Julie, ganyan magselos ang mga lalaki. We tend to get mad kapag ganun ang situation. It only means na namamatay na siya sa selos. Ayaw mo ba yun?” he asked.

“Gusto. Kasi atleast alam kong seryoso siya sa akin.” kalmadong sabi ni Julie.

“Yun pala. So just keep going with your act and I’m still willing to help naman eh. Alam mo, aamin din siyang nagseselos siya. Hintay ka lang. Okay?” Toffer said and winked at her sabay gulo sa buhok niya.

“Haha. Thanks, Toffee.”

“You’re welcome. Oh magbihis ka na. Let’s go island hopping.” he winked again. Ngumiti si Julie tsaka na tumayo para kunin ang shirt niya sa pwesto nila.

*****

“Sasama ka ba sa amin?” Maqui asked him.

“San?” tipid na tanong niya.

“Island hopping.”

Tumango na lang siya tsaka na sumunod sa pinsan maglakad papunta sa bangka na sasakyan nila.

“Oh. Buti napilit mo yang sumama?” Sef asked Maqui.

“Di naman nagpapilit eh.” sagot nito. Halata ni Elmo na medyo bwiset pa rin sa kanya ang tatlo kaya tahimik na lang siyang umupo sa dulo ng bangka.

“Uhm. Hindi pa to yung sasakyan natin. Ihahatid lang tayo ni Mang Kiko sa yacht sa gitna ng dagat and that’s what we’ll be using sa island hopping.” Toffer said.

“Alright!” masayang tugon ng tatlo.

Umalis na sila sa pampang and masayang nagkkwentuhan ang apat while Elmo sat quietly at the back of the boat. Ayaw muna niya makisalamuha sa kanila dahil alam niyang mainit ang dugo ng mga ito sa kanya.

“3 islands ang pupuntahan natin. Yung isa, maliit lang siya. Actually lumulubog yun kapag high tide. Nasakto lang na low tide ngayon kaya mapupuntahan natin. Madaming starfish dun, Jules.” Toffer said. “Then yung sunod naman, it’s an island na medyo malaki dun sa isa. White sand dun and the water is bluegreen. And lastly, yung largest island. Yun yung pinakamagandang island. May sand formations dun. And may makikita ka din na mga jellyfish.” he added.

“Awesome!” sabi ni Julie.

Nang makarating sila sa yacht ni Toffer ay binigyan sila nito ng ice-cold beer.

“Dude oh.” sabi ni Toffer sabay abot ng beer kay Elmo.

“Thanks. Asan sila?” he asked.

“Nasa loob.”

“Okay.” tsaka na tumalikod si Elmo.

Maglalakad na sana siya papunta sa kabilang parte ng yacht nang marinig niyang nagsalita si Toffer.

“I like Julie.” Toffer said. Napahinto siya sa paglalakad at saka napatingin dito.

“What did you say?” he asked.

“I said, I like Julie. Gusto ko siya.” sagot nito. “I can feel that you two have something for each other pero I’m telling you dude. Kung hindi mo pahahalagahan si Julie, I’d be more than willing to take her away from you.”

“Hah! You just met her yesterday. Napakabilis mo naman atang magkagusto sa kanya?”

“She’s very likeable.” he answered simply.

“Yeah she is. Pero Julie is mine.” Elmo said.

“Haha. Dude, diba nililigawan mo pa lang siya? Ang girlfriend at asawa nga naaagaw eh. Nililigawan pa lang kaya?”

“Don’t you dare…” banta ni Elmo sa kanya. Nag-iinit na ang ulo niya dahil sa kayabangan ni Toffer.

“Try me Elmo. Because I’m telling you. I always get what I want.”
