"Wh-what d-did you say?" KJ asked, eyebrows raised. Nanlalaki ang mga mata nito. Napahawak ito sa manibela ng wala sa oras at napaharap sa akin ng biglaan. Halos malaglag pa rin ang panga nito. To say that he was flabbergasted was an understatement.

 

I avoided his gaze. I swear, I could feel my face turned red. What the fudge did I say? 

 

You just confessed, idiot, a small voice in my head said.

 

Omaygad. Omaygad. Omaygad.

 

I can't take it back now, can I? Oh dear God. 

 

I swallowed hard, but a small shocked sound still managed to escape. I felt as though I'd taken a punch to the solar plexus.

 

"Will you say it again?" He almost said those words in a whisper.

 

I looked at him. His eyes were full of emotions that I couldn't interpret.

 

"It's your fault. You're deaf," I said, my mind whirling as I struggled with my conflicting emotions. I switched my gaze to the car window. Gosh.

 

Hinawakan niya ang mukha ko at iniharap ulit sa kanya.

 

"Please." His eyes were pleading.

 

Now, how can I say no to that look?

 

"I...I...s-said I...I..."

 

Mukhang naghihintay pa rin si KJ ng sasabihin ko.

 

"I...I...said..."

 

"Yes?" I swear I could see a smile forming on his lips. This freak!

 

"I said you're ugly!"

 

Bigla itong tumawa ng sobrang lakas. Halos mabingi ako kasi sarado pa naman ang kotse.

 

"You just told me you love me!" He shouted! Pumapalakpak pa ito. He looked so...so happy.

 

"Narinig mo naman pala e. Tinatanong mo pa," bulong ko.

 

"Come on. Say it again."

 

"No."

 

"Oh, please."

 

"No."

 

"Say it again."

 

"No."

 

"Oleya Astrid!"

 

"No."

 

"Fine then. Hindi tayo lalabas sa kotse na ito hangga't hindi mo sinasabi ulit." Humalukipkip lang ito, nagniningning ang mga mata. I know he's enjoying this. 

 

"You're kidding." Halos masamid ako sa sinabi niya.

 

"I'm not."

 

"Yes, you are."

 

"I'm not."

 

"Fine." I muttered with ill grace, angry for allowing myself to be maneuvered into something that I didn't want to do. Darn.

 

"Yes?" He smiled.

 

My heart skipped a beat. 

 

"Ikaw muna." Pakipot muna ang peg ko. Mahirap na. Baka nagkamali lang ako ng rinig sa kanya. At saka wala lang, I just want an assurance that the feeling is mutual.

 

"I said I love you, but you're a fool." He grinned.

 

"I said I love you, too, but you're a fool as well." I grinned.

 

We just sat there, staring at each other, smiling widely. Err...Yeah. We looked stupid, I know.

 

Parang kanina lang, nagsisigawan kami. Ngayon naman, para kaming tangang nakangiti. What's happening in the universe? 

 

After a minute or so....

 

"Yes!" Napasuntok ito sa hangin.

 

Pero ang mas kinagulat ko ay bigla niya akong niyakap. Hindi naman agad ako nakagalaw dahil sa pagkabigla.

 

Pero napangiti na rin ako. Woah. Hindi ito ang ineexpect ko. Akala ko magkakahiyaan kami. Hindi naman pala.

 

Kumalas na siya sa pagkakayap, pero malapit pa rin ang mukha niya sa mukha ko.

 

"So..." Binitin pa nito sa ere ang sasabihin. "Tayo na? Asawa na kita? Wife? Misis?" Excited na tanong nito, parang bata. Bumabalik na naman ang dating KJ, makulit at isip bata. Kanina nakakatakot siya, ngayon naman, nakakatuwa. Ang cute cute niya. Bakit ba siya ganyan? He's so irresistible. Pero isa lang ang sigurado ko. KJ is bipolar; bipolar is KJ. Yes, KJ is the epitome of a bipolar.

 

Pero teka, ano raw? Kung kami na? Ano siya? Sinuswerte?

 

"Ang daya mo naman e. Hindi noh. Manligaw ka muna." Kunwa'y seryosong sabi ko. Pero deep inside, halos mamatay na ako sa kilig. Peste.
