Mr. Chinito 16

Nasa canteen ng school ni Maya si Richard, waiting for Sylvia, the HR head of LHR. He decided na doon na lang niya hintayin ang empleyeda niya para di siya makita ni Maya just in case nasa school na ito. Sylvia said on the way na daw siya from the  flower shop na pinagbilhan ng flowers na pinapabili ni Richard. He came all the way from the airport, di na siya nagbihis pa at nagmamadaling maabutan ang event sa school ni Maya. Buti na lang at may isang passenger na nagpa-cancel ng ticket kaya heto siya ngayon, ready to surprise Maya. He is excited to see her, two days din silang di gaanong nakakapag-usap ng matagal sa phone kasi parehong pagod. He misses her so much. Since it is an important event for Maya, he decided to come and support her.

While waiting for Sylvia, he accidentally heard two students behind him talking .

“Pare ano yan? Pinabibigay na naman ni Mr. Feraris?”

“Oo eh, ewan ko ba dun..stockholder ata ng chocolate factory at araw-araw na lang nagbibigay ng chocolate. Inaayawan na nga di parin tumigil.”

“Iba din fighting spirit nitong si Mr.Feraris ano? ”

“Sinabi mo pa! Minsan nga sinabihan ko na tigilan na niya kasi parang wala namang effect kay Maya yung pachoco-chocolates niya everyday, sige parin ng sige..sus, kung maghihintay siya kung kailan siya sasagutin ni Maya di na talaga siya magkaka-asawa!”

Napalingon si Richard sa bandang likuran niya when he heard the name  Maya. Pero agad naman niyang binawi ang kanyang tingin ng maisip niyang baka hindi si Maya ang tinutukoy ng dalawa. He decided to listen intently, hindi para maki-chismis but to confirm na hindi nga si Maya na asawa niya ang pinag-uusapan nila.

“I heard madami nga daw nanliligaw.”

Boyfriend? Ang sabihin mo asawa meron na..

“Di na nakapagtataka yon, lahat naman ata tayo dito may crush sa kanya..Aminin mo, ikaw din!”

Tumawa ang dalawang lalaki.

So that Maya is like my Maya, beautiful and charming.

Richard smiles while playing with the straw of the soda that he is drinking.

“Lahat nga ng boys sa basketball varsity team crush daw siya. But unfortunately, si Bart lang ang pumasa sa kanya. Kaya tuloy ang mga  girls mas lalo naiinis sa kanya.”

Tsss.. so si Maya nga!..pero di naman totoo yon..bakit crush ko ang tawag ni Maya sa kanya sa phone?

“So sinagot na siya ni Maya?”

“Malamang! Lagi ko kasi silang nakikitang magkasama nitong mga nakaraang araw eh.

“Ay kakainggit pare noh?”

“Oo nga eh..ay teka, ihahatid mo yan sa kanya ngayon?”

“Oo, samahan mo ako sa gym..”

“Tara!”

Tumayo na ang dalawang lalaki at kinuha ang mga gamit nila sa mesa nang maisipang magtanong ni Richard.

“Excuse me.”

“Yes po, ano po yon?”

“What time daw magsisimula yung program doon sa gym?”

“In about an hour siguro .”

“Ahh okay..thanks.”

“Sige po.”

Tumalikod na ang mga lalaki at iniwan si Richard, habang siya ay naghihintay kay Sylvia di maiwasang mapaisip si Richard sa narinig niya kanina. Pero naisip niyang chismis lang naman yung sinasabi ng mga yon kasi di naman kay Maya nanggaling ang  confirmation na sinagot na ni Maya si Bart. Richard still believe na hanggang crush lang talaga ni Maya si Bart considering yon ang nakasulat dun sa cellphone nito when he accidentally saw his name flashed on Maya’s phone when he called her before.

“Sir Richard!”

Richard turn his head to the caller and saw Sylvia, carrying a bouquet of red roses in her arm.

“Sorry Sir..traffic! Late na ba tayo?”

“No, not yet.. I will just take this, mauna ka na since ikaw yung kailangan dun for the event…. By the way,  don’t tell Maya I’m here.”

“Of course Sir..Sige, I’ll go ahead. Alam mo na naman siguro kung saan pupunta di ba?”

“Yes, I know..kita na lang tayo later.”

Sylvia smiles at him, then turn to leave. Richard lay the bouquet at the table infront of him and took out his mobile phone from his pocket to call Maya. Her phone kept ringing but she wasn’t able to answer it. Thinking that maybe Maya is busy, he decided to go to the gym now and show himself to her.

Once inside the gym, he search for her and found her together with her group mates at a table located at the foot of the stage. She’s wearing the traditional chef uniform, white double-breasted jacket and white pants, on her head is a  white toque or the traditional chef hat. Her uniform fits her well and she looks neat and beautiful. She is talking to someone wearing a formal suit, looking at them from afar Richard could understand that she is discussing the menu that they have on their table. Watching her talking with so much confidence just makes him so proud of Maya. Minutes passed, Richard saw the man leaving. He was prepared to approach their table already when he  saw her leaving  after her group mate talk to her. Maya look towards the stage and smile.

 

 

 

“Where?”

“Ayun oh!”

Edselyn point towards the stage. Maya look and saw Bart, standing there, smiling with a bouquet of flowers on his arm. Maya smiles back at him.

“Sige na puntahan mo muna..dalian mo lang ha at madami ng guests na pumapasok.”

“Okay..thanks Eds.”

Nilapitan ni Maya si Bart.

“Hi Maya! Flowers for you to wish you good luck!”

Bart pass the bouquet to Maya.

“Aww thanks Bart! Sweet mo naman.”

“Welcome! Kumusta na?”

“Actually kinakabahan na kami. But so far nasasagot pa naman namin ang mga tanong nila. Sana maganda ang feedback sa group namin. We are hoping na sana kahit isa man lang sa amin may makuhang offer. ”

“Relax Maya! Kaya mo yan, ikaw pa! Oh, wait..yung hat mo ayusin natin.”

Inayos ni Bart ang toque ni Maya.

“Ayan..okay na yan?”

“Yeah, thanks Bart..balik na ako dun ha. Mamaya na tayo mag-usap.”

“Okay..no problem..good luck!”

“Thanks Bart!..and thanks din for the flowers.”

He gave her a quick hug, then pat her shoulder before he left.

Maya immediately return to their place. Hiding the bouquet of flowers below their table, she then stand beside Edselyn who is now talking to a guest.

 

 

Dahil sa nakitang yakapan between Maya and Bart, biglang nanamlay si Richard. He knows that he shouldn’t jump into conclusion without asking Maya first but jealousy consume him. After what he heard earlier, he just can’t help it. The fact that he’s been away for days tapos lagi pang magkasama sina Maya at Bart makes him crazy already. He can’t face her, not when he is not in a good mood. And since he doesn’t want to ruin her special day, he decided to leave the place instead .

 

 

 

It was almost 8 p.m when she arrive home. Pagod pero sobrang happy din. They were the highest rated group among the 10 competing groups kanina. And of course sila lahat ay may offers in different hotels and restaurants for their OJT next semester. At dahil siya ang leader ng group nila,  mas doble pa ang kasiyahan niya for leading her group mates to success. After ng activity nila, Maya and her friends went out for a little celebration. It was just a simple and quick celebration in a restaurant, pagod na din ang iba kaya pagkatapos kumain they planned to just do another celebration next time at magsi-uwian na para makapagpahinga na din. Hinatid siya ni Bart, who also went at nakipag-saya kasama nila sa restaurant.

Pagpasok sa bahay nakita siya ni Manang Fe. She greeted her.

“Kumusta naman ang activity ninyo?”

“Ayun successful naman po sa awa ng Diyos. Masaya po kami lahat Manang at may mga offers kami para sa OJT namin next sem!”

“Mabuti naman kung ganun..o ihahanda ko na ang mesa?”

“Huwag na po Manang, kumain na po ako..akyat na po ako..”

“Di na ..”

“Hindi na po! Salamat po..”

Paakyat na si Maya sa hagdanan. Pansin ni Manang na pagod ito, kaya hinayaan na lang itong umakyat.

Pagpasok ni Maya sa kwarto, inilatag nito sa mesa na nasa tabi ng kanyang higaan ang dalang mga gamit at ang bulaklak na binigay ni Bart at agad itong tinungo ang walk-in closet para kumuha ng pamalit na damit. Inilatag niya sa kama ang nakuhang damit then undress herself. If there is one thing she like of not having Richard around, its the previledge to be able to walk around the bedroom wearing only her bra and panty. Having prepared her clothes and get rid on some of her clothes, she walk towards the bathroom. She was already holding the doorknob when suddenly the door flew open and saw Richard coming out from there with only a white towel wrap around his waist. Startled to see him, she scream.

“AHHHHHHH!!!”

The voice of Maya screaming loudly startled Richard.

“Shhhh !!!”

Richard said to silence her. Pressing his index finger on his lips while his hand is holding her shoulder.

“AHHHHHH!”

Maya, with one hand covering her eyes and the other trying to cover her body, keeps screaming loudly out of embarrassment.

“Shhhh!! Ako to..keep your voice down.”

“Ikaw nga! Ikaw nga!”

“Oo nga ako nga..stop screaming! Baka magtaka ang mga tao sa baba kung bakit ka sumisigaw.”

Kakatapos lang sabihin ni Richard ang mga salitang yon, narinig na nina Maya at Richard si Manang Fe na kumakatok sa pintuan.

“Maya! Maya! Ano ang nangyayari sa’yo diyan at sumisigaw ka?”

Nataranta si Richard ng marinig si Manang Fe, afraid that the older woman will open the door with her duplicate key he decided to answer her while pulling the blanket and wrap it around Maya before opening the door himself.

“Manang! …”

“Bakit sumisigaw si Maya?”

Manang Fe, push the door wider to see Maya. Maya, covered with the comforter with only the head showing, smile at the old woman nervously.

“Wala po Manang..ano lang..uhmmm..ano kasi…”

Nang makita ni Manang Fe si  Maya, di nito maiwasang ngumiti, lalo pa ng makita niyang kinabahan din si Richard at nakatapis lang ng towel.

“Ano ka ba naman Ricardo..alam kong matagal kayong di nagkita pero hinay-hinay naman..”

“Manang! Hindi po..”

Lumapit si Maya sa may pintuan pero hinarangan siya ni Richard nang makita nitong  napasugod na din ang ibang kasama sa bahay.

“Sige po Manang..sorry po sa abala..”

Tumango lang si Manang Fe at  ngumiti. Sinarado na kaagad ni Richard ang pinto bago pa tuluyang makasilip ang iba sa loob. Pagharap ni Richard, Maya is already frowning.

“Ikaw kasi!”

She bark at him.

“Why me? You were the one screaming!”

Defending himself  helplessly.

“Bakit kasi…teka anong ginagawa mo dito?”

“Bakit ba, eh bahay ko din to..”

Richard is trying not to laugh. Napansin kasi niyang namumula pa din si Maya because of embarrassment.

“Sige na Maya, magsho-shower ka di ba?..sige na pumasok ka na at magbibihis na din ako.”

Tumalikod na si Maya at naglakad patungong shower room nang muli siyang tawagin ni Richard kaya lumingon siya ulit dito.

“Magsho-shower kang naka-blanket? Hubarin mo na yan..nakita ko na naman eh!”

“Grrrrr! Kakainis ka!”

Tumawa ng malakas si Richard habang si Maya naman ay pumasok sa loob ng bathroom na nakabalot parin ng kumot.

Habang naliligo di mawala sa isip ni Maya ang nangyari kanina. Sinisisi ang sarili niya kung bakit pa siya naging kampante at naghubad ng damit kanina. Di na niya alam kung paano niya haharapin si Richard. Tinitingnan ni Maya ang sarili niya sa salamin, pilit kinukumbinsi na di siya dapat mahiya at sexy naman ang katawan niya.

 

 

Nagbabasa ng magazine si Richard sa may veranda nang lumapit si Maya sa kanya. Umupo ito sa harap niya pero ayaw siyang tingnan nito.

“Sabi ni Doris pinapatawag mo daw ako?”

“Oo..Bakit ayaw mo akong tingnan?”

“Heh!”

Richard giggle, kaya mas lalong nainis si Maya. Aalis na sana si Maya nang pigilan siya ni Richard.

“Sorry na..okay change topic na tayo. How was the event kanina sa school?”

Kasabay ng pag-change topic ni Richard, nag-iba narin ang mood ni Maya. Her smile clearly shows the positive result of the event. Ikinuwento ni Maya ang nangyari at kung ano ang results.

“That’s great! Congrats!”

He smile broadly. Too happy for her achievement. Gusto niya sana itong yakapin nang biglang naalala ang nakita kanina.

“Ay ano yan..masaya ka ba talaga para sa akin o hindi..nakakatampo na ha. Uuwi ka pala di ka man lang sumilip dun sa event. Buti pa si lolo tumawag at nag good luck sa akin.”

Tiningnan ni Richard si Maya, na-conscious tuloy siya at napaisip kung may nasabi ba siyang mali. Kaya naisipan nitong bawiin ang sinabi.

“So-sorry..ang ibig kong sabihin..alam ko namang di mo kailangang gawin yon kasi alam mo na..di naman talaga tayo..”

“I was there..”

Richard said in a very low voice.

“Ano yon?

“I was there..kanina..”

“Talaga? Eh bakit si Ms.Sylvia Cruz yung nakausap ko? Di naman niya binanggit na andun ka.”

“Because I told her not to tell you na andun ako.”

“Ganun? Nakita mo ako dun?”

“Of course I saw you..and you were..were..basta I saw you.”

Tumayo na si Richard at iniwan siya sa veranda, nakita ni Maya na papasok na ito sa kwarto nila.

Anong drama nun? Kakausapin daw ako tapos biglang mang-iiwan.

Susundan na sana ni Maya si Richard nang bigla lumitaw si Manang Fe, may dala-dalang bulaklak at binigay ito sa kanya.

“Ano to Manang Fe?”

“Nakita ni Joma dun sa likod ng kotse, kasama ng maleta ni Richard. Nakalimutan sigurong dalhin. Mukhang para naman sa’yo yan”

“Thanks Manang.”

Tumalikod na si Manang Fe at iniwan siya.

Bouquet..di kaya para kay Catherine to kaya di niya inakyat?  Haist ka-swerteng babae!

Sinundan na ni Maya si Richard sa kwarto nila para ibigay ang bulaklak. Pagpasok ni Maya ay nasa harap ng tv na ito, naka-upo sa may sofa. Di man lang siya nito pinansin pagpasok niya.

“Bulaklak mo binigay ni Manang Fe sa akin, kunin mo na..Bakit di mo yan binigay kay Catherine pagdating mo kanina..bukas malalanta na yan.”

Nang marinig siya ay bigla siya nitong tiningnan nag masama.

“Damn Maya! Di yan para sa kanya, para sa’yo yan!”

Inis na sagot ni Richard sabay patay ng tv at tayo para pumunta sa kama nila.

Na-sorpresa man sa narinig, ayaw magpahalata ni Maya na masaya siya at binigyan siya nito ng bulaklak. Mas nanaig ang curiousity kung bakit siya binigyan ng bulaklak.

Pero bakit di mo binigay kanina eh pumunta ka naman dun di ba..

“Para sa akin to?”

“Yes, its for you!”

“Bakit?”

“To wish you good luck sana kanina..”

“Kanina? Eh di ba sabi mo nakita mo ako dun, bakit di ka lumapit para ibigay to sa akin?”

Umiwas si Richard na sagutin ang tanong ni Maya, hihiga na sana siya ng biglang hatakin ni Maya ang t-shirt niya.

“Bakit nga?”

“Forget it.”

“Bakit nga?..”

“Because I saw you smiling and hugging someone habang hawak-hawak mo ang bouquet na binigay niya!”

“So?”

“So umuwi na lang ako..”

“Ganun? Eh bakit ka nagagalit sa akin di ko naman kasalanan na umuwi ka kanina..ikaw lang naman yung maarteng di lumapit?”

“Di ako galit…nagtatampo, baka..”

“Kahit na ba tampo lang yan, wala parin akong kasalanan noh..”

“Sino bang di magtatampo kung yung taong pinuntahan ko..lumipad pa ako all the way from Cebu just to see her and support her on her is hugging someone… Okay..sige na..aaminin ko na..nagseselos na ako..happy ka na at  umamin ako?”

“Nagse-selos ..ka ??? Bakit?”

“Bakit bakit bakit!! Wala na bang katapusang bakit yan Maya?”

“Bakit nga?”

“Isang bakit pa hahalikan na kita!”

“Ba–..”

He give her a quick kiss on her lips.

“Bakit mo ako hinalikan?”

Naiiyak na sabi ni Maya while covering her mouth . Richard took off her hand  and hold both side of her head. He  tilted his head and press his lips to hers for a kiss. Maya’s eyes widen with shock but Richard didn’t let her go, when she move her mouth to speak, she only allowed Richard to deepen his kiss.
