I was tired and exhausted when I got into the office the next day. I had tossed and turned all night, and as a result, walked into work with a huge Starbucks latte in my hand. That, however, didn't deter my bestfriend Meg Toledo from practically pouncing on me the moment I plopped down in my seat.
"Hoy Nina!" a hand waved right in front of my face
"Anak ng Tukneneng naman oh? kanina pa ako dada ng dada eh.. 'di ka pala nakikinig plus your mind is anywhere else but here."
She has this natural volume on her hair that reaches below her shoulders, she also has this long lashes that would highlight her big expressive eyes. Skinny but has the curves on the right places. on the contrary, she isn't really that tall.
"Ah, wala" The dullest and shortest answer I gave her out of her nagging
Nasa Starbucks kami ngayon when I texted her to meet me up for an 'S.O.S' . She need not to be told twice or thrice for she already knew what's my 'S.O.S' is all about
"Definitely, It's Gerard."
I bit my lower lip while I was trying to find words inside my head that would definitely give justice to what I feel.
"Hah! I knew it! I didn't even sound like I was asking but Im sure, it was a bull's eyes huh?" She added and took a sip on her Frappuccino
Meg beamed, looking ready to gush about it some more, when her eyes landed on the coffee on the table. She frowned and peered at my face, and then her own expression fell. "He didn't show up, did he?"
I sighed and turned on her. "No he didn't."
"Did he give an excuse at least?"
I shook my head.
Meg let out an angry growl and perched herself on desk, forcing me to look at her. "How many times has it been? Twice? Three times?" She asked.
"Just twice," I mumbled.
"Just twice?" Meg let out an angry scoff and made a rude gesture that made me look around surreptitiously. "For God's sake, Nina. I don't know how you stand this. This guy is not good for you, can't you see that?"
"Need I say more? Sige, Ikaw na ang next Madam Auring" I said
I dont want to admit to her pero talagang wala akong takas pag dating kay Meg. She knows every little thing there is to know about me.
"EWWW!" She gave me a disgust look and rolled her eyes
"Dont you dare compare me with that old hag who puts a spikey chocker on her neck! I am far far more prettier, see the exaggeration?? Kahit wrong grammar, FAR MORE PRETTIER than who ever you compared me with"
I just sighed and darted my gazes at my Blackberry
Bakit kaya hindi pa siya nagtetext?
Meg seem to notice what I was thinking so I flinch when she suddenly slammed her fist on the table
"Hindi talaga mag tetext yang boyfriend mong ulol, Nina. Taas na lang ng pride nun!"
She stood up and then gestured her other hand on top from the other, slowly making a huge distance between her two palms
"Mga.. Ganto lang naman kalaki ang pride ng Gerard Enriquez na yan. see? see?"
Then she sat once again to where she was supposed to and then crossed her leg from the other
"Naku, Nina! Loving someone should give you a glimpse of heaven. Pag impyerno na, baka naman gusto mo nang magising ha? Nagmumukha ka na ngang tanga, habol parin ka ng habol. At wow ha? akalain mong .. nakalimutan ba naman ang 4th anniversary niyo! gosh!"
"Masyado lang talaga siyang busy, Meg .. but his willing to make it up for me naman tomorrow"
I reasoned out, glancing at my Blackberry from time to time
