Status Update : The Wedding Prep.

Days passed (talagang days passed kasi matagal na yung last post ko ng S.U hek! ) natuloy na din ang pamamanhikan ng pamilya ni Richard sa San Nicholas. The Dela Rosa’s welcome the whole Lim household with Don Roberto and Donya Esmeralda in their humble home. Everything went well thus the wedding plan commences thereafter. Maya and Richard planned their wedding together, though, with the aid of the hired wedding planner, every details of the wedding are carefully planned hand in hand with the couple.

Struggling between their work and the wedding preparation, finally bukas ikakasal na sila! Everyone’s excited, pero kinakabahan si  Maya. She is in her hotel room now, naka check-in kasi siya doon in preparation till tomorrow sa wedding day nila. Nasa kabilang suite lang din ang kanyang pamilya at ang pamilya ni Richard. Sa sobrang kaba ni Maya di siya nakatulog ng maaga. Nasa couch siya nanonood ng tv, palipat-lipat ng channel, naubos na siguro niya lahat ng channel di parin siya dinadalaw ni antok. Maya-maya narinig niya ang cellphone niya may tumatawag.

Sir Chief!

“Hello?”

“As usual di ka pa tulog..”

“Ikaw din naman ah!”

“Excited?”

“Kinakabahan..”

“Why?”

“Kasi bukas wala ng urungan..ikaw?”

“Can’t wait..gusto ko hilain ang oras ..”

She heard him chuckle.

“Have you written your vow?”

“mmm hindi pa.”

“Why?”

“Kasi ayoko..”

“And what does that suppose to mean?”

“Ayoko kasi, alam kong mangungulit kang pakinggan ngayon yung vow ko.”

“Silly..I’d still prefer to hear that tomorrow para kiligin naman ako.”

That’s was unexpected. She giggles.

“Ang saya mo marinig yon ha!”

“Sorry..Sir Chief, paano kaya itsura mo pag kiligin ka!”

“Ewan ko, kahit ako di ko alam ano itsura ko. .Pakiligin mo ako bukas ha.”

He said again, this time they are both laughing. Nang mahimasmasan they suddenly turn quiet. Then she  heard him sigh on the other line.

“Oh, bakit?”

“Because I just can’t believe this will happen again..you know, finding someone new to love after Alex left.I thought …”

“Shhhh tama na..nasabi mo na yan noon di ba. Bukas magsisimula tayo ng panibagong buhay together..tayo with the kids..Yon na lang isipin natin okay?”

“Yeah, you’re right.. so.. bukas ha. Huwag kang malate..at lalong-lalo huwag mo akong indyanin!”

“At kung gagawin ko  yung mga  sinabi mo, as if naman may magagawa ka”

“Try me, Maya..wait, may plano ka bang ..”

“Sira! Matulog ka na nga!”

“Lipat na lang kaya ako diyan?”

“Saan? Dito sa room ko? At bakit?”

“Para mabantayan kita!”

“ummm mabantayan ako? Eh bantay salakay ka eh..bukas ka na magbantay sa akin.”

She said in her usual joke-like tone whenever he tries convincing her about “it”. Habang papalapit na ang kasal nila, nagiging komportable na si Maya sa usapang “mahalay”. Lagi na lang kasi siyang binibiro nina Doris at Sabel kaya medyo nakasanayan na niya at nakikipagbiruan na din kay Richard tungkol sa usapang yon. Though naiilang si Richard at first pero lately napapansin ni Maya di na din ito nagpapahuli kina Doris at Sabel. He’s been giving her hints lately na di niya gustong i-entertain at baka mawala siya sa sarili at madala siya sa tukso.

 

 

At seven in the morning, busy ang lahat. All except the bride. Kasalukuyang natutulog pa ito..peacefully..puyat. ..and unfortunately lasing..

“What?!”

Richard said in a loud voice, napahinto sa pagkain ang mga anak niya ng marinig siya at sabay sabay na napatingin sa kanya.. They are gathered together in his room eating breakfast when Cristina Rose called.

“Richard nag-away ba kayo ni Maya?”

“Hindi! We talked last night before I went to sleep. Okay lang naman ang usapan namin, wala naman kaming problema. Though I remember her telling me that she can’t sleep.”

“Baka kaya uminom dahil dun, para makatulog.”

“Madami ba siyang nainom?”

“Medyo po, mga kalahating bote po ng wine.”

Kalahati?  Richard sigh while holding his neck.

“Do you need any help? Pupunta ako diyan.”

“Huwag na Richard, gigisingin ko na lang to..kami na po bahala dito. Pasensiya po sa abala.”

“Okay, sige..thank you for informing me..”

Richard’s worried voice didn’t slip unnotice . Cristina Rose assured him and convince him na magiging okay din ang lahat.

“Huwag ka mag-aalala..may oras pa naman. Gagawin namin ang lahat para maayos to. Makakarating si Maya sa simbahan, kahit ba kaladkarin namin siya or ipasakay sa wheel chair para lang makapunta, gagawin namin yan”

Richard couldn’t help but smile when he heard that. Somehow it  made him relax a little knowing that meron siyang back-up from Maya’s side just in case.

The hours came by so quickly, naging busy na din sina Richard preparing themselves for the wedding. Wala na rin  siyang narinig from Cristina Rose but he is hoping na okay na ang lahat.  Di rin siya pwedeng magtanong kina Nikki at Abby since both are on the other room para magpa-make up. Richard has Luke but just like him di rin alam nito ano ang nangyayari sa kabila kasi off limits daw kahit sino to see the bride, except for her immediate family.

“Don’t worry dad, i’m sure she will make it..”

Richard nodded and smile.

“Dad, can i just say this? … Alam ko di tayo mahilig sa drama kasi di tayo  kapareho ni Nikki but i just want you to know how happy i am that finally you will have her by your side, this time forever na. After mom left..and our family went through those hard time,  ni minsan di ko inakala this day would come. Yung makikita kitang ikakasal ka ulit. It was always mom that you had in your heart and that makes you really sad for the longest time. Now, that you found someone to share the rest of your life with. I am truly grateful to her for bringing you back to life…to us. I’m even grateful at si ate, este mama Maya yon..When the time comes na mag-aasawa ako,  ikaw ang magiging guide ko on how to be a perfect father to my kids and a loving husband to my wife. Di ko man madalas sabihin to pero for everything, thank you, dad.. and i love you…kami nina Niks and baby, we love you both, please know that.”

“Thank you son.. (Richard hugs Luke tightly, then slowly release him from his embrace but continue holding Luke’s shoulder) and remember that kahit nagpakasal na ako di ko kayo pababayaan. Now, dalawa na kaming mag-aalaga sa inyo, magmamahal sa inyo.. I would also want to thank you for letting me love her, for accepting her to be part of my life, and most especially for welcoming her in our family. I love you and will always be a proud father to you and to your sisters hanggang sa lumaki na kayo at mag-asawa na din.”

Richard and Luke hug each other again. Medyo naluluha pa sila pareho and when they realized that, napatawa na lang sila while wiping the tears. Pagkatapos nilang mag-usap lumabas na sila para sa photo and video session before going to the church.

 

“Maya, okay ka na ‘nak?’

Tanong ni nanay Teresita paglabas ni Maya sa shower room. Mabuti na lang at nakahanap ng lunas si Kute sa hang-over niya kundi walang kasalang magaganap. Kagabi nang di makatulog, naisipan niyang inumin ang natirang wine na dala ni Edselyn noong nagkaroon sila ng mini bachelorette party sa hotel na tinutuluyan ni Maya. Di naman niya alam ganun pala ka tindi ang tama ng wine na yon kasi di naman siya uminom that night party nila. It was never her intention na maglasing but just to help her sleep last night.

“Okay na nay..huwag kang mag-aalala..asan na ba yung make-up artist at nang masimulan na?”

Nakapag make-up na sina nanay Teresita at Mamang, nakaproma narin si Kute pero si Maya na ikakasal hindi pa. Dalawang oras na lang bago ang itinakdang oras ng kasal nila ni Richard kaya nag-aalala na silang lahat.

“Kakayanin to..di ba Mama Franz?”

Tanong ni Maya sa make-up artist niya. Tumango naman ito sabay ngiti.

“Kute, kapit-bisig tayo ha..kapit bisig sa pagdadasal na di tayo ma-trapik mamaya!”

Kundi lagot ako kay Sir Chief, baka pati sa honeymoon namin principal’s office pa din ako..

Maya is dead worried..naalala niya ang boses ni Richard last night when she joked about not coming on time.

“Try me Maya..”

Mas lalo siya kinabahan..at di niya mapaliwanag kung bakit.
