Step 1

 Georgina’s

 

 

 

While on my way to work, napagdesisyunan kong dumaan sa SM Dasma para mamili. I need some sort of displays – mugs, gift wrap, picture frame and so. Sa company kasi, kailangan naming decorate-an ang aming mga tables. It is not required but we found it amusing. Company tables decorated with cute things? That’s pleasing to eye. Relaxing. Nakakawala ng stress. Trip-trip lang ‘yan ng Head of Finance Department na si Miss Leah. Actually, nagjo-joke nga lang siya. Pero hindi niya akalain, papatulan pala namin.

 

Sa mall, masyadong crowded. Ang babaan ng jeep ay sa second entrance. Since sa kabilang dulo pa ang National Book Store, kailangan ko pang maglakad. Holding my local Hermes bag, I scanned the place. Ang daming tao.

 

I saw couple everywhere kaya unti-unti nawawala na ko sa konsentrasyon. Did I ever tell that I easily get irritated whenever I am seeing er—lovers, couples, boyfried/girl friend? It’s just that, I don’t want to see such. I really don’t want. Due to mood swing, I think? Yeah. ‘Yun lang.

 

Habang naglalakad, biglang dumagsa ang tao at sumilip sa gitnang part ng mall. ‘Yung place para matanaw mo ang event center. Nagsisiksikan sila para Makita kung anong meron. Maya-maya, nagtitilian na ang mga babae. Maging ang mga lalaki, parang kinikilig? Based on the expression I saw.

 

Dahil dakila akong usisera, kahit siksikan na, pinilit ko pa ring makahanap ng magandang view para malaman kung ano ang event na pinagkakaguluhan ng mga ito. To my surprised, I saw a man proposing to her girlfriend, I guess. His one knee bent, he’s holding a ring. May malaking tarpaulin ng pictures nilang dalawa na naka-post sa stage. Suddenly, nag-play sa isang screen na video. Sweet songs are playing, slide show of their pictures are flashing, audience are giggling.

 

Walang ekpresyon ang mukha ko. Na-speechless ko. Effort much si guy! Afterwards, nagsalita na siya.

 

 

“You became my world since I met you. You became my universe since I’ve known you. You complete my life. You became my love. You suddenly became my everything. “

 

Cheesy.

 

“Thank you for giving me the honor of becoming your boyfriend. But If you’ll let me, I want to resign already. I don’t want to be your boyfriend anymore. ‘Cause it’ll be happier if you and I will move closer to our dreams. My Lindsay Agatha Cruz, are you willing to be Future Mrs. Diaz? If it’s a no, please kiss me on the cheek. If it’s a yes, kiss me on the lips.”

 

The audience started to yieeeeeeee. Lalong umingay.  Nakakainis!

 

That Lindsay is already red. Nahihiya siguro siya. But more of kinikilig. Baka humindi pa siya a?

 

 

“Come on, Babe, I’m keyed up. I want your answer.”

 

“Kiss sa lips!” Pagsigaw ng mga tagapanood.

 

Ang tagal ni ate. Kaloka! Di na ko makapghintay, nakipagsiksikan na ulit ako para makawala. Inayos ko ang damit ko na bahagyang nagusot. Bakit ba kasi naki-usisa pa ko doon.

 

“Yes! Yes!” Shouted the guy.

 

Happy ending. I sighed.

 

Tapos, naglakad na ako ng mabilis. Hindi na ko bibili. Saka na lang. Gusto ko ng umuwi.

 

 

 

I suddenly felt,

 

 

 

 

BITTER.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why those people turned to be happy?

 

Bakit ako, hindi?

 

 

Why those people found their match already?

 

‘Yung sa’kin wala pa rin?

 

 

Why those people fell in love and loved in return?

 

Ang unfair!

 

 

I supposed to be happy.

 

I deserved to be happy.

 

 

 

But when?

 

 

 

When will my love story be written?

 

 

 

I am 20 but still NBSB.

 

 

Damn it!
