CHAPTER 86: STRANGERS
Nandito ako ngayon sa unit ko. We just got home last night and the trip was very tiring. Actually, kanina pa ako gising. Halos 1 hour na akong nakamulat but still, I can’t get myself out from this bed. Namiss ko lang siguro na solo ako sa kama since these past 2 nights ay may katabi akong matulog when we were in Palawan, it’s Charmaine.
Hayy. Why am I having this strange feeling? I really don’t understand myself. Honestly, I felt so bad when Kurt said that we have to treat each other as strangers.
Yeah, I already got over him but doesn’t he think that it’s really wrong? Well, yes, I suggested that we better start anew but not definitely this way. We can still be friends though I admit that we can’t be a good one. Arrgh! It’s really frustrating. We cannot stay like this forever like duh!? We belong to a same circle of friends and I just can’t…ugh!
This is wrong. He’s the future husband of my bestfriend slash cousin, Kaye Anne, so it means that he will be a part of our family. Eh bakit kasi kailangang strangers pa?
Bago pa ako masiraan ng bait dito sa kwarto ko, I decided to get up from bed and do my thing on the bathroom. In 20 minutes, I’m perfectly done. Kinuha ko muna yung purse and netbook bag ko before storming out of my condo unit. Makiki-wifi ako sa Starbucks ngayon.
After kong i-lock ang unit ko, napatingin ako sa left side ko. Sakto naman na kakalabas din ni Kurt at ni-lolock din ang unit niya. Geez~ strangers..
He glanced at me so I looked away. Bigla siyang naglakad papunta sa elevator pati na rin ako. Pipindutin ko na sana ang down arrow kaso naunahan niya ako. I glanced at him but he doesn’t really care about my existence. Aisst!
Bumukas ang elevator kaya pumasok na kami. Walang tao sa loob kundi kaming dalawa lang.
“What floor, miss?” tanong niya. Miss? Ako nga, kami lang naman ang tao dito ee. Unless, may white lady with us. Uwaaaaaaaaa~ Why am I scaring myself?
“1st floor,” I answered quietly and looked down. Alam niyo ba yung feeling ko ngayon? I’m now sweating cold. It’s really awkward and the situation is really frustrating. Ugh! Pwede naman kasing friends. Ang gusto pa, strangers? Ang arte.
Ang tahimik lang. The only sound I can hear is the elevator and my own heartbeat. Kinakabahan kasi ako eh. Amp naman oh! I tightened my grip on the netbook bag. Ayoko ng ganito. I really feel bad of what is happening.
“K-Kurt, I think------“
Tsk. Ang ganda ng timing ng elevator, grabe! Pagkabukas na pagkabukas nito ay parang ninja lang siya na lumabas. What I meant is he quickly walked away and didn’t even take a single glance on me.
Stranger. Yeah, strangers. Just great -__-
Supposedly, dito ang floor ko kaso I’ve changed my mind, I’ll use my car anyway. So, sa basement nalang ako.
Nawala ako sa mood na mag-lakad papunta sa pinakamalapit na Starbucks kaya ginamit ko nalang ang kotse ko na si Baby Porsche. It’s just a 10-minute walk away from my condo but if I use my car, 3 minutes drive lang.
I’ve ordered Sausage & Cheddar Classic Breakfast Sandwich and Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate for my breakfast obviously. It’s almost 9 in the morning pa lang naman eh. So, what I have to do right here right now is to check my mails online, my private facebook, oh, naka-tag na yung pictures namin nung nag-travel kami sa Thailand and Singapore, and I’m gonna read a little on wattpad. At wow! Marielicious has reached 50k plus reads already. Classmate ko yan nung highschool eh. (A/N: Minention ko sarili ko ahahaha :D)
Update here, update there, confirm here, confirm there, comment and like there and everywhere, post here and post everywhere. Habang nagpipindot ako sa netbook ko, kumakain naman ako ng sandwich ko. Ang sarap promise!
“Mind if I sit here?”
Napaangat ang ulo ko sa nagsalita at nanglaki ang mata ko at napanganga nang makita kung sino ang lalaki sa harapan ko.
“Wala na kasing ibang bakanteng upuan eh.” Tumingin siya sa paligid pati na rin ako. Wala na ngang vacant pero bakit sa akin tatabi itong si stranger? Yeah, si stranger po siya.
“A-aah, I don’t mind but I’m not comfortable eating when somebody----“
