In My Heart 19

“Yes?”

He utter eagerly.Maya stifled a laugh. Richard look so cute as his eyes widened in surprise. He immediately move at her front, grinning as he shook her shoulder.

“Teka, teka, teka ..kalma ka muna Chard ha…ang sabi ko WHAT IF..”

She saw him pout and frown. Gusto niya talaga pag inaasar niya si Richard at nag-aasal bata nito.

“Kala ko pa naman..”

“Mr. Lim nagiging assumero ka na ha! Hmmm masama yan, pag ginawa mo yang hobby magkakasakit ka niyan sa puso..”

Maya close her laptop and put it on her nightstand. Richard goes back to the spot where he was seated earlier and lean his back at the headboard, he saw her preparing for bed already.  Looking down at her still upset about her reply.

Maya who is now lying yawns and raise her arm, watching him closely.

“Ang arte, tampo-tampuhan..tulog na tayo Mr. Lim sabi ni Doc bawal ka magpuyat.”

“Go ahead..mamaya na ako, tatapusin ko muna tong game.”

“Tssss sige naa..halika na!”

Maya is tugging his shirt forcing him to lie down.

“Okay okay..lagi na lang ikaw nasusunod..”

Maya chuckles. He turned off the television and put the remote at his nightstand before lying down beside her. They are sleeping on their side, facing each other.

“Good night Mr. Lim.”

“Good night boss!”

Maya giggles as she close her eyes. Si Richard naman ay nakatitig lang kay Maya. Napa-isip sa lahat ng nangyayari sa kanilang dalawa nitong mga nakaraang araw. Masaya siya at nagiging okay na ang relasyon nila unti-unti.

If only di ako tanga, matagal na sana natin tong naranasan Maya.  I know ini-enjoy mo pa lang lahat ng to and I won’t force you kung iiwas ka ng iiwas. Less than a week na lang, we’ll make the most of those days Maya. Susuyuin kita, pagbibigyan sa lahat ng gusto mo  if that will make you happy then yon ang gagawin ko. Pagdating sa araw na yon, kung  oo man o hindi, at least nagawa ko na ang gusto kong gawin. Napasaya kita kahit sa ilang araw lang.

“Love you Maya”

Richard whisper and kiss her forehead before he close his eyes to sleep.

 

Kinabukasan balik trabaho na silang dalawa. Hinatid muna ni Richard si Maya bago ito pumasok. An hour later pumasok si Claire, isa sa mga staff carrying a bouquet of long-stemed  roses. What caught her attention is the single red rose at the center.

“For me?”

“uhmm ikaw ha..ang sweet ni Sir James..”

“Galing kay … James?”

“I guess so..bakit may iba pa bang magpapadala ng flowers sa’yo kundi ang boyfriend mo?”

Di pa alam ng ibang mga tao sa office ang tungkol sa breakup nila ni James kaya di nakakapagtataka kung si James agad ang maisip ni Claire.

“Thanks for bringing this Claire..paki sabi kay James thank you…siya ba nagpahatid nito?”

“Actually no..nadaanan ko ang delivery boy sa baba and nag volunteer na ako na magdala sa’yo niyan. ”

“Ahh okay..thank you .”

“Your welcome. Sige mauna na ako.”

Claire left Maya’s office. As soon as she close the door, she immediately took the card inside the envelop. Contrary to what Claire said, may hinala siyang si Richard ang nagpadala ng flowers.

 

“In case you are wondering…white roses to say “I’m sorry” and that one special red rose to tell you “I love you”.

   

                                                               Love,

                                                                      (Your Sir Chief) Richard

Maya smile while reading the card.  Just as she finish reading it, her cellphone receives an incoming call from Richard.

“Hello?”

“Did you receive it?”

“Ummm yes..”

She is trying her hard to sound normal as possible but deep inside, her heart is jumping with glee.

“And did you like it?”

“Yeah, it’s nice..thank you.”

“Welcome. Are you thinking of me na?”

“Anong klaseng tanong naman yan Richard.”

“You should be.”

“At bakit?”

“Kasi kanina ka pa laman ng isip ko.”

“Richard! Ewww! Sige na..bye na ..magtrabaho na tayo. “

She heard him laught on the other line. Buti na lang mag-isa lang siya sa opisina niya or everyone would surely ask why she’s blushing right now.

“Bye Maya.. just like what is written in card, i’m sorry..”

“Sige na bye na…”

“Wait!”

“Oh ano na naman?”

“Love you!”

“Ay ewan ko sa’yo Mr. Lim.”

Maya ended the call. She knows that Richard is just teasing her pero di naman maiwasang kiligin din siya gaano man ka corny or kababaw ang ginagawa nito sa kanya. If only it happen six years ago, during her younger days pa, may permit pa sana siyang kiligin ng todo-todo.  But beyond those cheesy lines, kuha naman niya kung ano yung gusto ipahiwatig ni Richard sa kanya and she appreciates it.These are the things na hindi nila pinagdaanan ni Richard noon. Kung noon nagpakasal sila na hindi man lang dumaan sa ligawan stage, Richard is doing it all now.

After the call, Maya started working again. At dahil hindi siya pumasok the other day, tambak na naman ang trabaho niya. Setting aside thoughts about Richard Lim at nagconcentrate sa trabaho muna.

Lunchtime, magkasama sina Maya at Richard sa isang restaurant na malapit din sa workplace ni Maya. Despite how busy she is, she decided to join him para makasiguro na maiinom ni Richard ang gamot niya. And para masiguro na dadating siya, si Maya ang pinagdala ni Richard ng gamot niya.

They were about to leave the place afraid that ma-late na si Maya when suddenly may isang batang babae na kakapasok pa lang ng restaurant ang nagtatakbo papalapit kay Richard.

“Daddy!!!”

Nagulat si Richard ng biglang yumakap ang batang babae sa  kanya. And when he look down ..

“Sam? Baby ?!”

Mas lalong nagulat si Maya malaman na kilala pala ito ni Richard.

“Sam! Dahan-da…Chard?”

Napalingon si Maya at Richard sa main door at nakita ang isang matangkad na babaeng papalapit sa kanila. Nakangiti ito na ubod ng tamis kay Richard.

“Yna?”

Yna?

Habang papalapit ang babae, saka lang ito  namukhaan ni Maya.

Siya yung babaeng nakita kong kasama ni Richard noon sa kama..Siya yon, di ako nagkakamali..

Nang makalapit na si Yna ay humalik ito sa pisngi ni Richard sabay yakap ng mahigpit sa lalaki. She stood there watching them unable to move. Halo-halong bagay ang tumatakbo sa isip niya habang nakatingin sa dalawang magkayakap sa harap niya. Napatingin din si Richard sa kanya halatang nagulat din sa pangyayari.

“Daddy!! “

The little girl, who Richard called Sam earlier is tugging his sleeve, trying to get his attention. Raising her arms para magpakarga kay Richard.

“Daddy I miss you..”

Daddy…

Maya stare at the little girl. Kung di siya nagkakamali, nasa apat hanggang limang taon na ito. Maputi at singkit.

    Let me guess… pamangkin ni Richard si Sam na anak ng pinsan niyang si Yna… he just “used” Yna to hurt Maya before, so Maya will be forced to leave him…
    Hayyy…wishful thinking lang po, kasi okay na sana, nasira na naman eh…😦
