CHAPTER 77: THE COMEBACK
“I missed both of you!”
Hindi ko na napansin na nakapasok na siya. Nabigla ako nang iabot sa akin ni Kaye Anne si Baby Axel. She then kissed her bestfriends on both sides of their cheeks. God! How I missed that smile.
I can’t help not to stare at her from head to heel. She looks so stunning with her long wavy hair. She really changed a lot. She looks so mature yet so gorgeous.
“Hi, Dustin!” Crystal greeted and kissed Dustin’s cheeks.
“Hello, you look so fabulous,” Dustin complimented.
“Should I take that as a compliment or are you just being sarcastic? Hahaha! You’re still cold as ever.”
“That’s true.” =___=
Napatingin sa akin si Crystal at pati na rin kay Axel at balik na naman sa akin. She smiled. What the fvck! She looks so angelic when she smiles like that.
They all suspiciously looked at us, as if they’re intrigue at the both of us; me and Crystal.
“Hi, Kurt. Kamusta ka na?”
My body stiffened on what she did. She kissed my left cheek. Nag-fake cough silang tatlo.
“What? That’s the European way of greeting friends,” Crystal genuinely smiled, confusion marks on her face.
“Oo nga. HOY, KURT! Kamusta ka na daw? Natulala ka na dyan ah. Hahaha!” Chloe snapped her fingers on my face.
“Ah, sh*t. S-sorry. Nagugutom lang ako. “
They all chuckled. Even Baby Axel giggled in my arms. Fvck! Pati pagtawa ni Crystal, ang sexy.
“Hahaha! Can I carry him? He’s so cutie patootie,” Crystal said in a baby-talk way.
“I’m f-fine.” Sh*t, stop stammering Kurt.
Inabot ko na kay Crystal si Baby Axel. Parang nakuryente ako nang iabot ko siya sa kanya. Nagkadikit ang balat namin. Dammit.
“Awww! Look! His smile is so cute. Anong pangalan ng pamangkin kong gwapo?” Crystal asked in astonishment while spinning him around slowly.
“He’s Axel…” Kaye Anne answered with her both hands on her own cheeks. Bakas sa mukha niya na natutuwa siya sa pagdating ng pinsan niya.
“Wow, gut aussehend Kleine, Axel. (Wow, good-looking little one)” She pinched and kissed him on both sides of his cheeks. “How old is he?” Tanong ni Crystal.
“He’s 1 year and 4 months,” Kaye Anne answered.
“Kurt, baka matunaw. Sexy, isn’t she?” Dustin whispered to me. Hindi ko na siya pinansin, basta nakatitig lang ako kay Crystal. Dammit, why am I having this strange feeling? Sumisikip ang dibdib ko?
“Tara na, kain na tayo. Gutom na si Kurt eh. Hahaha!” Chloe teased. Parang umuurong ang dila ko, hindi ako makasagot.
Umupo na kaming lahat. Inilagay ni Kaye Anne si Axel sa stroller niya. I sat between Kaye Anne and Dustin, next to him is Chloe. Nai-serve na rin ang foods but my focus is out.
“Ang tagal naman ni Nathan,” Gail suddenly blurted out.
“Oo nga pala, kasama mo ba siya ngayon??” Chloe asked.
“Ah oo----- Ay! There he is!”
Napalingon kaming lahat sa pinto.
