[CHAPTER 10]

Lumapit sya sakin.. Felling ko sasaktan nya ko dahil sa ginawa ko dun sa girlfriend nya.

Napapikit ako pero agad din napamulat ng bigla nalang nya kong niyakap. Agad ko syang tinulak palayo sakin.

Ayoko na. Lumayo kana sakin. Ayoko ng mapalapit yung feelings ko sayo..

“Hey, don’t do that again okay? Your girlfriend.. She’s watching..” saad ko

Halata ang pagkagulat sa mukha nya

“But--“

“No buts.. It’s over Elmer. Game over.. You played my feelings right? Then you won.”

Agad akong umalis sa harapan nya. Hindi ako makapaniwalang sinabi ko ang mga iyon. I'm a loser.

****

[Elmer]

She pushed me after I hugged her. Did she really say that?

 

“And one more thing honey, how can Elmer play my feelings if I don’t feel anything for him? Kuha mo ba?”

 

I thought she likes me.. TOO. I feel  so upset. Yes I like her but... I’m just playing with her.

Agad na lumapit sakin si Abby. We don’t have any relationship. I don’t hate her, but I don’t like her either. I just treat her as my little sister but she misunderstood the way I show my care for her.

“I saw it. You hugged her! How dare you!” sigaw nya at saka ako sinampal

Bakit ba gustong gusto nyang manampal? Hindi naman sya ganyan eh. Napa-iling na lang ako at nagsimulang lumakad pabalik sa classroom.

I stop when somebody grabbed my arm. I looked back and saw Abby. Is she crying again?!

How many times does she has to cry because of me? When will be the time for her to realize that I am not worthy of her love?

“Is that what you call playing with her? Tell me!” she asked crying

“Let’s talk to other place. They’re all watching.”

She didn’t answer. She just continued crying. What I’m going to do with this girl? Bakit ba lagi nalang syang umiiyak? Baka madehydrate na sya sa ginagawa nya.

I grabbed her and brought her in a vacant room where we talked this morning.

“Is that what you call playing with her huh?!” she asked again
