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



Pagkahigang pagkahiga ko, hindi ko mapigilan ang aking sarili na hindi mapangiti. My bestfriend really looks hot and sexy in his white under wear, pansin ko din ang mga butil ng pawis sa kanyang leeg at dibdib that adds up to his mojo. Nakaharap ito sa akin, medyo humihilik pa sa sarap ng tulog, nilapit ko ang aking mukha sa kanya and I can feel a warm breath from his slightly opened mouth, at kahit na lasing, hindi ko maamoy ang alak but instead I smell seventh heaven and sex. This is the first time that I get the chance to stare at him this way, na hindi ako nacoconscious, na hindi ako nahihiya. He has this bad boy look that really turns me on, a look that says he really doesn't care much about it, because he always looks good and doesn't even need to try. And he has, well, something about him that's just so, hmmm…hot.

Hinaplos ko ang kanyang mukha, at napangiti ako. Lagot ka sakin, jek.  "Lights, Camera, Action!" says my mind.

Humugot ako ng isang hibla ng buhok nito sa kilikili para magising at mapansin ako sa kanyang tabi . Dali dali kong pinikit ang aking mga mata. Alam kong nagising ito at napabangon sa gulat nang mapansing tulog ako, hubad sa kanyang kama. Halos mamatay ako sa kakapigil ng aking tawa, pero patay tulog pa rin.

Nag inat inat ako kunwari, na parang naalimpungatan din.

"lex..." bulong nito.

"jek.." pabulong kong sagot . Tinitigan ko ito at halatang halata ang pagkalito, mga mata'y punong puno ng katanungan. Tinakpan nito ang mukha ng kanyang dalawang kamay, na para bang takot na takot, na parang pilit na inaalala ang mga nangyari. Napangiti ako.

"ano bang nangyari?" tanong nito, mukhang galit na naiinis. Halatang hindi ito mapakali.  Hindi ako sumagot. Kunwari tulala. Dumapa ako at kunwari humihikbi hikbi.

"Pasensiya ka na lex, pero hindi ko talaga matandaan eh." dagdag nito.

"Eh gago ka pala. Pinuntahan kita 'coz I wanna check up on you, at sabi ni tita , andito ka raw, lasing na lasing. Pagkapasok na pagkapasok ko palang, you grabbed and pulled me to bed at pinaghahalikan, tinulak kita at sinubukang pigilan pero binalaan mo akong sasabihin mo ang lahat kay Mama. Gago ka. Nagpaubaya ako sa'yo para maibsan yang putang inang libog mo, binigay ko ang lahat kasi natakot ako sa'yo at sa pagkakaibigan natin, tapos ganyan sasabihin mo? na hindi mo matandaan? Halos magmakaawa akong parang bata sa'yo pero para akong basurang binaboy mo.  Hindi ka pa talaga nakuntento, at iinsultuhin mo pa akong hindi mo maalala?" pagda drama ko, I got carried away by my act,  tumulo ang luha mula sa aking mga mata . Halata ko ang pagkabigla nito sa mga sinabi ko. Napakamot siya sa kanyang ulo at napasuntok sa kama. Tumayo ako at pinulot ang mga damit kong nagkalat. Habang sinusuot ko ang aking short, hinila ako nito at niyakap.

"Alex, sorry. Sorry talaga. Hindi ko talaga alam bakit ko nagawa iyon. Hindi ko alam. Dala lang siguro ng pagkalasing pero hindi ko ginustong saktan ka ng ganito. Sorry talaga. Pasensiya na." mga bulong nito.  Napalunok ako at pigil na pigil parin ang tawa. "Effective" says my mind.

"What's done is done. I just hope you keep your words and keep it yourself. I don't want you near me, and I don't want to see your face anymore. You disgust me!" sagot ko na may conviction, taas noo.

"Alex!!!!" sigaw nito. Hindi maipinta ang kanyang mukha, magkahalong lungkot at galit. Niyakap nito ang kanyang unan at sinubsob ang ulo. Napangiti ako, magaling pala akong actor, at siguradong mahihiya ang FAMAS kung Best Supporting Actor lang ang igagawad sakin.

Tumayo ito at animo'y parang may hinahanap sa kama. Tinanggal nito ang mga unan,  at pinagpag ang kumot. Maya maya tumatawa na ito ng malakas. "Shit, nabaliw na ata siya" pangangamba ng aking isipan. He sat on the side of his bed and grabbed my hand, he pulled me closer to him.

"What the hell is wrong with you?" tanong ko.

"Kung totoo man yang sinasabi mo, at kung ayaw mong ipagkalat ko ang baho mo, gusto ko ng second round. Paligayahin mo ako." sabay tawa nito ng malakas. Halos hindi ako makapag-pigil, natatawa narin ako pero kailangan kong panindigan ang acting career ko. Sayang ang effort.

"Are you completely out of your fucking mind?" pasigaw kong tanong. Hindi ito nagpa-pigil at pinaghahalikan ako sa leeg, sa dibdib. At habang tinutulak ko ang mukha nito palayo, lalong napalakas naman ang pagtawa. Hinila ako nito pahiga ng kama, at pinagkikiliti sa tagiliran, hindi na'ko nakapagpigil at napahalakhak narin.

"Sira ulo ka. Akala ko totoo na. "

"haha siyempre, ang isang artista'y di lang dapat itsura at katawan ang puhunan, minsan, mas tumatagal sa industriya ang mga magaling umarte" pagyayabang ko.

"pero paano nga kung nangyari?"

"i will do exactly the same thing"

"totoo?" sabay tingin at bitiw ng pilyong ngiti. Napalunok ako. He's really good at this. He knows how to turn my word against my mind.

"lahat naman nadadaan sa maayos na usapan" I grinned.

"at maayos na paki-usap, di ba?" banat nito. Hindi na ako sumagot at napailing nalang. Tumayo ito at kumuha ng damit para makapag bihis.

"How did you know?" tanong ko habang napapangiti pa rin.

"Simple lang, kung totoo ngang may nangyari sa atin, sigurado akong duduguin ka. haha, sa laki ba naman nito" sabay hawak sa kanyang pagkalalaki. Halos gusto kong himatayin sa pagdakma nito sa kanyang ari. Napatigil ako at tinakpan ang mukha ko ng unan, maya maya pa tumatawa na naman ako.

"Uy inimagine.." he added and laughed out loud.

"Gago, mayroon din ako niyan, mas malaki pa siguro" haha

"haha yabang, patingin nga."  sabay hila ng aking short pababa, hinampas ko ng unan at parang batang nagtatakbo ito palabas ng kuwarto.

Naiwan ako sa loob, topless, my short's half stripped sanhi ng paghila nito. Napailing ako. I never thought I would fall on my own sword. It's my jape against him, but I ended the victim. "Hayaan mo na, seeing him sleep and naked is abso-fucking-lately better than winning a beauty queen crown" pagmamayabang ng aking isipan.

Maya maya pa'y bumalik ito ng kuwarto at inaya akong magdinner. Dahil busog pa naman ako, sinamahan ko nalang siya sa kusina . Habang kumakain ito, I sat beside him at pinanuod itong kumain. Nakipag kwentuhan ako at naki-balita.  Nasabi ko dito ang mga nangyari sa akin maghapon and everything.  Akala ko magagalit ito dahil nakasama ko si Tyler, pero ngumiti lang na parang may itinatago, hindi rin ako nakarinig ng pagtutol o pag disapruba. "dude, I smell a freaking rat here" pagsingit ng aking isipan. "that's god damn right, something's off the chain." says the other side.

Mag aalas diyes na ng gabi ng magpaalam akong mauna na at maaga pa ang pasok namin bukas, tumango lang ito at hinatid ako hanggang sa gate ng bahay.

"sabay ako sayo bukas." aniya.

"sige sige"

Bago pa man ako makapasok sa gate, hinila ako nito paharap sabay halik sa aking pisngi. Napatigil ako. I didn't see it coming. It's just a peck on my cheek, but I can't seem to understand the reason he has to. Tinulak ko ito at tinignan ang paligid, buti nalang walang tao. "Weew! Thank God". says my mind. "Inarte, gustong gusto naman" says the other. Tinignan ko ito and he's wearing this smile again that ladies would give up their diamonds for.

"what's that for?" I asked, sabay kunot ng noo, pero pigil ang ngiti.

"wala lang, masaya lang ako" sagot nito.

"at bakit ka naman masaya?"

"basta.. basta..bakit ayaw mo ba?" tanong niya.

"who says I don't?" pabiro ko. Tawanan kami.

"oh sige pumasok ka na.. at baka di pa ako makapag-pigil..." paalam nito sabay lakad pauwi.

"sino ba nagsabing pigilan mo?" paghahamon ko. Napailing ito sabay tawa.

"Anong sabi mo ha? ha?" sabay takbo pabalik sakin. Ni-lock ko naman agad ang gate at tumakbong tumatawa papasok sa loob.

"Bumalik ka dito! Hanggang salita ka lang naman eh!" sigaw nito habang tumatawa. Hindi na ako sumagot at sinenyasan nalang ito na umuwi na. Sinunod naman nito pero napapailing parin sa tawa habang naglalakad. Pumasok ako sa loob na nakangiti, nadatnan ko si Nay Cleng na tulog sa sala at bukas ang TV. Nakatulugan ata nito ang sinusubaybayang mga programa. Napangiti ako lalo. Hinayaan ko nalang ito at umakyat na ako ng kuwarto.

I laid my back to bed and closed my eyes. I remember Tyler, Tyler and Tyler. "Wow! How many Tyler you know, lex?" asks my mind. Napangiti ako. What should I do? I just can't help it. I just can't stop thinking about him. "holy crap, why him?" asks my mind. Napangiti ulit ako. "that's a fucking million dollar question, dude." says the other side. "Oo nga naman, bakit siya pa?" bulong ko sa aking sarili. Lalo akong napangiti. Well Okay, admit it, he can easily get into my nerves but he has this way of turning it upside down. He can be a dick sometimes but he knows exactly how to make it his boon. He may seem like he has this funny borderline personality but that's what makes him effin hot,  one day he's like this, the next day he's like that, unpredictable and hard to fucking read. Oh dear God, please don't tell me I'm falling... It's too soon. It can't be.. It's not possible.. There's definitely an explanation for this, I just have to figure it out.  No! No!

"Well dear Alex, the ball is out of our god damn court, it's not me who get to decide, it's your heart, and looking at how you curl your hair? believe me, he's getting in.. he's getting inside of your precious ufcking heart" says my mind.

"Correct!, why not we ask your heart?" sabi ng kabilang parte.  Napailing ako. Para naman akong tangang hinaplos ang dibdib and tried to listen to it.

"lab lab lab lab lab lab lab" says my heart.

"oh my shitty nightmare,  that's freaking hilarious" says my mind

"hahahaha there's nothing more I can do 'bout it, your heart says it all." says the other side. Napailing ako at napatawa. Why? Why?  Dumapa ako, and fuck the goat Mary Elizabeth, I can see his face, his smile, his lips, his body, his chest and those sweet little hair. I can smell his breath, his scent. I can feel his touch, his skin, his kiss...

"Get out of my mind, you mother-fucking-asshole!" pasigaw ko na halos pumutok ang aking litid sa lakas. Tumayo ako at kinuha ang laptop. I checked on my facebook account ,and BOOM, countless of comments posted on the picture jek tagged me in. Some asked if he's the new guy, some were confused as to why this guy's kissing me, some asked if it means I'm finally going out, some questioned my preference. Nakakastress! When I'm about to log out from the said site, I got a video call from tyler. Ugh! Bigla ako kinabahan, my heart pounds like a horse race, tinakbo ko agad ang banyo at nagsalamin, nagsuklay, naghilamos, nag toothbrush, nagpowder, nagpabango.  "NAGPABANGO? WTF, Alex? Crazy Beeyatz!" reklamo ng aking isipan.

Dumapa ako sa kama at kunwari tinatamad, nagpractice muna ako nang tamang pag-ngiti bago sagutin ang tawag nito.

"hey" pambungad niya. Shit, topless ang mokong at nakadapa din sa kama. "hey  palang yan alex, pero kung maka blush ka na, akala mo pina-kasalan ka, ang obvious mong putang hitad ka." pangontra ng aking isipan. Ngumiti ako.

"wha- what's up?" tanong ko. Hindi ako makatingin ng diretso, nadi- distract ako sa hubad nitong katawan. Juskopo! Ang hirap naman nito!

"not much. Been here in my room since you left." he grinned.

"Okay.." tipid kong sagot at pindot pindot ng keyboard kunwari madaming ginagawa. Style!

"you busy?" he asked.

"not really..."

"you sleepy?" sunod nitong tanong.

"not yet.." pakipot kong sagot.

"good.. can you help me with somethin'?" he asked.

"it depends on what THING."

"Joy says I have to get a date tonight or they're kicking me out." he grinned.

"haha that's a pretty lame excuse, ty. I'm not buying it." I chuckled. Tinitigan ko siya at birheng carmelita ng santa rosa, gusto kong maglaslas sa sobrang guwapo nito.

"hahaha thought so.. okay, do you want to go out?" sunod nitong tanong.

"now?" sabay bitiw ng kunwaring gulat na ekspresyon.  Ngumiti naman ito at tumango.

"it's already past 11 in the evening Ty, may pasok pa tayo bukas." pakipot kong tanong pero deep inside, kanina pa ako nakabihis! Hindi ito nagsalita at nakatitig lang, parang tutang nagpapa-cute para bigyan ng pagkain. Juskopo! "Paano ako makakatanggi kung ganito ang nasa harapan ko? Mas masarap pa sa adobong manok ni nanay cleng." bulong ko sa sarili. Ngumiti ako, pero wala parin itong imik, nakatitig lang at nakanguso.

"Okay, you won. Saan tayo pupunta?" tanong ko,sabay irap. (kunwari lang)

"Yey! See you in 10 minutes."

"Wait, you know my place?"

"haha Nope..." Napatawa ako. Ang yabang nito mag-aya tapos hindi pa pala niya alam kung saan ako nakatira. I gave him my address and he bid his goodbye. Napatalon ako sa kilig, SHIT! Hindi ko kinakaya ang araw na 'to.   "At hindi ko rin kinakaya ang ugali mo, you cuss him to death but your actions speak otherwise. You pretend like you don't like him, pero we both know it's the other way 'round. Be true to yourself, show what you really feel, kasi alam mo? Ako ang nagmumukhang kontrabida dito." pagtataray ng aking isipan. Napangiti ako. Tinungo ko ang banyo para magshower saglit at magbihis, mahirap na. "Mahirap na??? Sige, no comment nalang." singit at pagtatampo ng aking isipan. "mabuti naman kasi I'm not asking for your opinion, so shaddafuck up and get lost. Ako ang bida sa kuwentong ito, at hindi ikaw." bulyaw ko sa aking isipan. Napangisi ako.

Minutes later tumunog ang doorbell, bago pa man ako bumaba at lumabas ng kuwarto, kinurot ko muna ang aking pisngi para kunwari blooming. "no comment parin" -my mind. Nakangiti ako habang palabas ng bahay. Pagkabukas na pagkabukas ko nang gate, bumungad sa akin ang isang napakaguwapong nilalang. A man that can run the World just by smiling, a man that can move heaven and earth. He's wearing a plain semi fit white shirt, matched with sporty capri short and white sneaker.

"Hi.." he initiated.

"He- hello." utal kong sagot. He chucked.

"Let's go.."  sabay akbay sa aking balikat. Pinaupo ako nito beside the driver's seat. He's playing a song of Yeng Constantino, napangiti ako.


Kung hindi inaantok
Kung hindi nasisilaw
Pwede bang malaman ko
May pag-asa pa kayang matatanaw
Bakit ba ang pungay ng bintana ng iyong mundo
Isang ngiti mo lang sakin
Ay baon ko hanggang sa pag-uwi
Oh chinito
Balang araw ay malalaman mo rin

At kung ikaw ay nakatawa
Ako pa ba ay nakikita
Nalilimutan ko ang itsura ko
Kapag kausap na ikaw
Sana naman ako’y pakinggan
At nang ikaw ay malinawan
Dahil nabihag mo ang aking paningin at damdamin
Oh! Chinito... Chinito...


"Didn't know you're into OPM.." pabiro ko.

"well, am still a filipino." he said sabay tawang nakakalibog. "********" my mind.

"I know.. but you gotta admit, some filipinos appreciate or prefer foreign over local music." paghayag ko.

"this one's cute.. it talks about you.."  sagot nito while eyes are on the road, pretending like it just came out of his mouth. Hindi ako umimik but believe me, gustong tumambling ng aking dibdib sa kilig at tuwa.  Binaling ko ang aking tingin sa bintana para hindi obvious na kinikilig ako.  Tahimik.

"Saan ba tayo pupunta?" tanong ko. Umiling lang ito at ngumiti. Binuksan ko ang bintana at dumungaw, the place is not familiar and I swear we're driving off the main road. I can see trees and I can feel a warm breeze brush against my cheek. "Shit, where the hell is this guy taking me?" bulong ko sa aking sarili.

He stopped the car and parked it on a hilltop. Bumaba ito and rushed to the back of the car. I can hear him pulling something out of the trunk. Bumaba ako ng kotse and God, the place is so beautiful. I can hear water flowing from the river below the hill. I can feel cold wind running across my skin. Tumingin ako sa itaas,  and oh slutty hera, the wife and sister of the great zeus, the sky is so fucking perfect, the moon is smiling and the stars are shining bright like diamonds. The place is romantic, I can hear crickets chirping and cicadas warbling to a beautiful melody. Napalingon ako kay Ty, nakangiti ito habang nilalatag ang blanket sa harapan ng kanyang kotse. We climbed up on the hood of his car, and laid our back against the windshiled, giving us an awesome view of the night sky. I couldn't ask for more, this is such a perfect night, in a perfect place, with a perfect man. Inabot nito ang isang bote ng beer, and smiled.

"Are you okay?" he asked and looked me in the eyes. I smiled.

"I feel perfect.., this is perfect.."

"I'm glad you like it..." he said. He put his hand around my shoulder, and as I feel his warm body, I rest my head on his chest. Tahimik.

"Ty..." pabulong ko

"yes?" he asked.

"why are you doing this?" I pulled back my head from his chest, and tinitigan ito sa mata. He smiled.

"Sometimes we do things not because we have to, but because it just feels damn good." he replied.

"And this is one of them" he added at bigla nitong nilapit ang labi sa akin. Ngumiti ito, and looked me in the eyes. Iniwas ko naman ang aking mukha para hindi magtama ang aming mga labi. Napangisi lang ito.

"I just don't get it, ty." I said.

"you don't have to understand, you just have to follow what your heart really feels" he grinned..

"there are a lot of questions in my mind right now.. there are a lot of things running inside..."

"let's just savor this great moment and we'll figure out those questions, soon. " he said, sabay hila sa akin at inakbay ulit ang kanyang kamay sa aking balikat. Tahimik namin pinagmasdan ang kalangitan habang nakasandal sa windshield ng kotse nito. I can't deny how happy I feel inside. This is something that I never really expected from him. I have never let myself into something that's never clear to me before, pero pagdating sa kanya, lahat nag iba, walang kasiguruhan, no definite answers, no clear understanding but I find myself enjoying his company, enjoying every single moment with him.

Tinanggal nito ang pagkakaakbay sa akin, at dali daling pumatong sa aking katawan, he lifted his head a lil to give space between our faces. He smiled, and bit his own lip. Nagulat ako sa ginawa nito. The position is quite awkward pero buti nalang nasa lugar kami kung saan walang taong makakakita. His eyes are like magical waters with dancing mermaids. And his smile is like a waterfall of hopes and dreams. He's like a lightning in the darkness, blinding, beautiful and mysterious. His look can melt solid steel.

"God, I have always been thinking about your lips since the first time I felt 'em." he said. Napangiti ako, I didn't know he's feeling the same way. I put my hands on his nape and pulled his head down and let our lips meet again. At habang magkadikit ang aming mga labi, he opened his mouth and kissed me passionately. The kiss which I call heaven lasted for minutes. Ang mga mata nami'y nakatingin sa isa't isa while our lips are like ocean waves breaking each other barriers. Ibinaba nito ang kanyang mga labi sa aking leeg, pinikit ko ang aking mga mata and let him own my soul. As his lips touch my neck, I opened my eyes and red rose petals are falling from up above, butterflies flying all over us, and thousands of fireflies lighting up the night. Moon's still smiling and stars are now shining even brighter than diamonds. This is fucking incredible. Pinikit ko ulit ang aking ang mata, I can feel his warm breath on my neck. He put his hands on mine and locked our fingers. I opened my eyes back and the magic's gone. All I can hear is the sound from the insects in one tempo. The place is dark again. I laid my eyes to Tyler, and God, his skin is glowing like the King of FairyLand. His eyes are like blazing fire.  He lifted his head, and smiled. I almost lost my breath seeing how beautiful and perfect his lips smiling. I can't believe such face like this, would waste time looking and smiling back at me. It is by now that I know, I am finally ready to die. I asked my mind "Hey, what should I do?", "this is your story ,right bitch? then please....... I wasn't born to play just a supporting role. I am a star!" pagmamayabang nito. Napailing ako.

"something wrong?" he asked while smiling.

"Nothing. Everything's perfect. "

"and you look perfect.." he said and kissed me softly.

Humiga ito sa tabi ko and we spend hours staring at the sky. Nagbukas ito ng chips at kumain kami habang nagbibilang ng mga bituin sa kalangitan. It's almost 4 in the morning nang mag-aya itong umuwi na. Tumango naman ako agad kasi nga, baka ma-late kami mamaya sa klase namin. While driving back to the main road going home, hindi ko na napigilan ang aking sariling mapaidlip.

"hey" haplos nito sa aing pisngi. Pagkamulat at pagkamulat ko ng aking mga mata, bumungad ulit ang ngiti nitong kasing tamis ng tsokolate. Napalingon ako sa bintana at nasa tapat na pala kami ng aming bahay.

"Thank you...Nag-enjoy ako.." sambit ko sabay ngiti. Niyakap ako nito at hinaplos ang aking likuran.

"I'm glad.. and thank you for making this night even better than I imagined." bulong nito sa aking tainga. Napangiti ako lalo.

"I gotta go.." paalam ko, at bago pa man mabuksan ko ang pintuan ng kanyang kotse, hinawakan nito ang aking pisngi and kissed me again on my lips.

"don't think too much, we'll know soon,  why these are happening..." bulong nito whilst our lips are half an inch away. Tumango lang ako.

Just before he drives his car back, bumusina muna ito, I waved my hand to bid my goodbye. He smiled and drove away. At nang hindi ko na maaninag ang kotse nito sa daan, pumasok na rin ako ng bahay. Pagkaakyat ko nang kuwarto, humiga ako agad sa kama. Tinignan ko ang aking relo, quarter to 5am na. Sigh. I closed my eyes, and I can feel my lips smiling again.

"I think I am falling in love with you... Tyler.."


Monday. Quarter to 8 in the morning.

Ginising ako ni Nay Cleng, laking pasasalamat ko naman dahil kung sakali male-late sana ako sa una kong klase. My eyes are burning like hell. I can feel my body beseeching for a few more hours in bed. I can hear two metals screeching against each other inside my head. My muscles are still snoring, my blood's still dreaming. The fuck, I am still sleepy. Ugh!

I got out of my bed and walked like a zombie. I can hear Nay Cleng laughing at me habang inaayos nito ang kama. 

"saan ka ba kasi nagpupu-punta kanina at anong oras ka na nakauwi?" tanong nito habang tumatawa parin na para bang lalong nang-iinis.

"diyan lang po sa tabi tabi.." sagot ko, then I remember Ty. Napangiti ako. Para naman akong isang laruan na pinalitan ng baterya at biglang nagka-energy. Pumasok na ako ng banyo para makaligo, tinignan ko muna ang aking sarili sa salamin at walang hiya, ayaw magbukas ng mga mata ko, parang nilagyan ng pandikit ang mga 'to at ang mga eye bags ko nama'y higit pa sa tig-iisang kilo. "At least, guwapo parin." bulong ko. "Wait, di ba dapat sa mga oras na'to, sumisingit na ang aking kontrabidang isipan? Mukhang nagtampo na nga.." pabulong ko ulit.

"hijo, alas nuebe ng umaga ang pasok mo, hindi alas nuebe ng gabi. Sino ba ang kinakausap mo diyan? Dalian mo para maka-almusal ka pa." si nay cleng sa pintuan.

"sinusubukan ko lang nay kung marunong pang magsalita ang dila ko." pasigaw kong sagot. Dinig na dinig ko naman ang mga tawa nito bago lumabas ng kuwarto. 

After kong maligo at magbihis, lumabas na ako ng kuwarto at nag-almusal kasama si Nay Cleng.  Habang kumakain ako, I remember Ty again and the hill, somewhere near heaven. Napangiti ako.

"Umamin ka nga hijo, nagda-drugs ka na ba?" pabirong tanong ni Nay.

"Aamin ako Nay kung aamin ka ring pinagpa-pantasyahan mo si Coco Martin." natatawang sagot ko.

"ay loko kang bata ka, sa edad ko ba namang 'to at saka napapanuod ko lang siya sa TV."

"pero pag nakikita mo siya sa TV halos mabasa yung upuan nay sa laway niyo. haha"

"hahaha ikaw talagang bata ka, puro kalokohan ang alam mo, at bakit ba napunta sa akin ang usapan. Ikaw nga diyan, may mga oras na tulala ka, may oras na nakangiti, tapos nagsasalita mag-isa. Nagda-drugs ka no? Naku, naku. Isusumbong talaga kita sa Mommy mo." mahabang sagot nito.

"sige nay, pag sinumbong mo ako. Susumbong din kita ikaw ang supplier ko."  Lalo naman itong napatawa. After namin kumain, nagpa alam na akong papasok na. 

Pagkabukas ni Nay ng gate, bumungad sa harapan ko itong matalik kong kaibigan, si jek, nakangiti. Sumakay naman ito agad sa kotse at nagpaalam na kami kay Nay Cleng.

"Anong mayroon at mukhang maganda ang gising natin?" tanong ko habang nagda-drive.

"uuwi si Joyce at kasama niya baby ko.." nakangiti nitong sagot.

"wow! talaga? kailan?"

"sa sabado na.."

"ang saya naman.. makikita ko na ang inaanak ko." sagot ko. 

"oo nga, bawi ka sa inaanak mo, madami ka na utang sa kanya." pabiro nito. Nagtawanan kami.

"Hindi ba dapat nalulungkot ako kasi hindi na sa akin ang buong atensyon ng bespren ko? Pero bakit ganito? I feel happy for him." mga tanong ko sa aking sarili. Napangisi ako. Tahimik.

"jek, got somethin' to tell you.." eyes are on the road, at kinakabahan baka ano maging reaksyon nito.

"ano yun?" tanong nito habang nakangiti.

"Tyler and I... hmmm, we went out last night.." hindi parin ako lumilingon sa kanya..

"tapos?"

"he took me somewhere, hindi ko alam yung place, you know a hill nearby, tapos may ilog sa baba?" tanong ko.

"sa dolores?" patanong nitong sagot

"I guess..."

" oh tapos?"

"wala naman, tumambay lang, umupo.. then.. then he kissed me.."

"tapos?"

"tapos... tapos na, umuwi na kami, hinatid na niya ako."

"yun lang? hahalikan ka lang pala dadalhin ka pa sa liblib na lugar, pwede naman diyan lang sa kanto." sagot nito na lalo pang lumakas ang tawa.

"gago, anong akala mo sa akin aso na pwede kung saan saan lang?"

"haha hindi naman.. umamin ka nga? gusto mo ba siya?"

"hindi ko nga alam eh, basta I feel different pagkasama ko siya..hindi ko alam." pagsisinungaling ko samantalang alam ko sa sarili kong nahuhulog na ako.

"enjoy mo lang muna.. masiyado pang maaga.." payo nito. Tumango lang ako. Hindi ko ito kinakitaan ng pagkainis, galit, pagtatampo, but a smile all through out. Parang may-alam itong isang bagay na itinatago sa akin. Hindi ko nalang pinansin at binaling nalang ang tingin sa daan. 

Narating namin ang school, pagkasarang pagkasara ko nang pintuan,  someone tap on my shoulder. I looked around and saw Tyler and his friends. Hindi rin nakaligtas sa aking paningin ang pag-apir ni ty kay jek na parang close na close ang dalawa. Binati kami ng mga 'to at si Joy nama'y niyakap ako. Sabay sabay kaming naglakad papuntang classroom at hindi inalis ni Ty ang kanyang kamay sa aking balikat. People are staring at us and shit, ang lalaki ng mga question marks sa kani kanilang ulo. May nakangiti, nakakunot ang noo, may parang nagseselos at nakataas ang kilay, may nagbubulungan, may tumatawa, may parang nanalo sa lotto at kinikilig. Sinubukan kong tanggalin ang kamay nito sa aking balikat pero wala man isang segundo, nakaakbay ulit. Napalingon ako kay jek, and damn, pati ito'y nakangiti na parang kinikilig at nang-aasar. 

Pagkapasok namin ng classroom, himalang umupo si jek sa harapan katabi ng mga kaibigan ni Ty. Umupo ako sa dati kong puwesto at maya maya pa'y tumabi sa akin si Ty, at sa dating upuan siya ni jek pumwesto. Napakunot noo ako.

"get used to it.." he grinned.

Hindi ko ito pinansin na siya namang lalong ikinatuwa nito. "Mahal kong isipan, kailangan ko ang opinyon mo, please kausapin mo na ako." bulong ko. 

"ni nanu ka murit?" says my mind. 

"ay shit, hindi ako nakakaintindi ng kapampangan" bulong ko. 

"Gago, iisa lang tayo! at saka pwede ba, huwag kang istorbo, busy ako." sagit ng aking isipan.

"huwag ka na magtampo.."  pakiusap ko. Napatingin ako kay Ty, and damn, bakit siya kahit puyat he looks better and better and better. "tanong mo anong sabon niya sa mukha." singit ng aking isipan. 

"Thank God andiyan ka na ulit. I miss you." pabulong ko.

"I'm sorry but the feeling is not mutual, huwag kang impokreto, I can still remember kung paano mo ako pinagtabuyan habang nakikipaglandian ka sa kanya. and besides, patapos na ang chapter na 'to, hindi ako papayag na konti lang ang exposure ko, mas madami pa ngang nag aabang sa akin kaysa sa'yo!" pagmamayabang ng aking isipan. Hindi na ako bumanat pa at napangiti nalang.

The class started, at gaya ng dati, hindi naiwasan ang pagbabangayan namin ni Ty over certain topics. Others find it amuzing, but I see it irritating, especially katabi ko lang ito. There are times when he agrees to my point, but will suggest better things na magmumukhang talo pa rin ako. He's good at this, and he knows how to turn everything to his favor. Lahat natutulala when Ty speaks. He's smart, I can't deny that, but there are times when he uses his advantage to make one thing into something, and I consider that selfish and hard.  "pero admit mo, you like it when it's HARD." says my mind. "you demented pervert, I'm not talking about how hard it is or what, I'm not not even talking to you right now, please learn to know where and when to say your part, just read your script, dumbass!" sagot ko dito.

"the good thing about being your mind is that, I get to know how you think but the worst part is? I know exactly how you undress at pagpantasyahan ang mga lalaking nasa paligid mo. So please, for mary's sake, spare me the word PERVERT, because we both know kung sino talaga sa atin ang putang inang hitad." mataray na sagot nito.

Napailing ako. "iisa lang tayo, so when I think of something, damay ka doon." pagtatama ko.

"Whatever, chinky faggot. I'm Out, see you again guys sa next chapter." pamamaalam nito. Napangisi nalang ako. Eksena.

After matapos ang unang klase, lahat sila'y may susunod pang subject. Tumayo ako para makalabas na sana ng classroom when Ty held my hand. 

"where yo goin'?" he asked.

"pantry, I need something to drink.."

"i know why you thirsty..."

"tell me.."

"coz yo right next to me, and I'm too hot for you.." he grinned.

"NO, that's not true.."

"and why's that?"

"coz I feel like I'm in Hell, sitting next to you.." I grinned.

"hahaha okay okay, just go out, I'll see you later." sabay tulak sakin habang tumatawa ito. Lumingon ako kay jek at sumenyas na lalabas muna ako, ngumiti lang ito at tumango. Bago pa man ako makalabas ng pintuan, Ty called my name, napalingon ako sa kanya, he smiled and winked. Napakunot naman ako ng noo, "ginawa pa ako nitong pokpok sa kanto" bulong ko sabay irap sa kanya.

After nang next class nila, pinuntahan ako ni jek sa library at inayang maglunch na muna. Pagkalabas namin, laking gulat ko nang nag-aantay din pala sina tyler at mga kaibigan nito sa akin. Sabay sabay kaming nag-lunch.
Hindi rin maitatanggi ang mainit na pagtanggap ng mga ito sa amin ni jek. Masaya silang kasama at makukulit. 

Habang tumatagal na kasama namin ni jek ang kilalang Elite Group sa campus, lalo rin namin nakikilala kung gaano kabait at ka-down to earth ng mga 'to. Lahat may kanya kanyang personalidad na di matatawaran. Lahat may kanya kanyang kuwento. 

At gaya kaninang umaga, sabay sabay kaming naglakad palabas ng school after ng mga classes namin. Lahat nagtatawanan, at nagkukulitan. Hindi parin maikukubli ang mga matang nakamasid, mga tanong sa kanilang isipan, mga bulungan at pagdududa. Yumuko ako habang naglalakad, animo'y parang naramdaman naman ni Tyler ang aking pagkailang at inakbayan ako nito. Tinabihan din ako ni jek na parang gustong iparating ang kanyang suporta. Napangiti ako.

"Hi babe..." sigaw nang isang lalaki. Pamilyar sa akin ang boses, hindi ako pwedeng magkamali. kinabahan ako. Lumingon ako sa kaliwa at bumungad sa akin ang taong una kong minahal, si JM.

  5. Ang daming "self-talk" ng bida. Minsan nakakairita. Ok lng nman kung magsasalita si "conscience", pero wag nman sanang halos kalahati ng chapter ang nae-spend by doing so. Halata tuloy na para mapahaba lng ang chapter. Newiyz, the story's essence is still there, w/c compensates the occational "by-lines". Just sayin'.

    1. those lines you were referring to, were added by author's discretion. If it iritates you or If you find it boring, I appreciate the honesty, but still, it is the author's discretion. You have the options to skip those lines, or stop it right there. It is not the author's responsibility to explain why such lines were added, wether to lengthen the chapter (like you were claimin), or anything else. Again, I appreciate the honesty and thank you for reading.

    3. Oo nga naman kuya mike.. Pinapakita ng "self talk" ang kalagayan at kung ano ang sitwaayon ng bida. It is just being realistic na kausapin ka ng sarili mong pagiisip. Maski naman ako dumaan sa ganung sitwasyon na naghaahanap na na lohikang pananaw sa sarili mo. Na punto na nagmumukha ka ng baliw dahil pilit mo binibigyang timbang ang bawat sitwasyon. At pilit mong ginigiit sa isipmo na kung ano ang nararapat. Basta enjoy mo lang yung story.. Masaya at kilig naman eh di ba. Mwuah.. - red orange.

  13. The only thing that's on my mind even right before writing this chapter is to put a smile on everyone's face.
    I did everything that I could to make this chapter worth-reading and not to waste anyone's time.

    Okay i get it, people are entitled with the will to express whatever they feel, be it in actions or words.
    But come on, would it hurt you that much if you consider others and be a lil sensitive sometimes?

    I take full responsibility of this story, so please, please, if you find it boring, if it hurts you, offends you or irritates you, skip the lines or stop it right there. I am not forcing you to continue reading if it'll just piss you off, coz again, all I ever wanted is to put a smile on your face.

    Honesty's the best policy, I salute you for that, but it'll make you a lil more human to think about it first before saying so.

    Relax lang po tayo, at mag-enjoy.


    Salamat and God bless.

    By the way, JM being on the scene makes it more exciting. Sana magkasamasama silang apat sa iisang sitwasyon. Sigurado magpapahusayan niyan si Ty at JM. Sana laging maungosan si Ty para mas lalong exciting. haha. I wonder how patient Ty will be.

    Alex is the man. Siya na. Siyang siya na. LOL

  26. This is now one of my only 3 MSOB faves and Alex Chua as one of my only 2 MSOB fave contributors. I like the perfect blend of maturity and cheesiness of this story. The author is also an impeccable storyteller, peppering the story with some words not familiar to me prompting me to widen my vocabulary. Though I find the main characters to be too good to be true, I agree with the author that everyone deserves their fairytale. I hope this story will live to the impression it already made so far 'til the end. Keep it up.This fan is also hoping you have a Twitter account :) - Kris
