CHAPTER TWENTY

Kahapon ako nakalabas ng ospital. Saturday na ngayon. Anong meron ngayon? Edi yung laban nila.

May kakaiba akong nararamdaman.Parang kaba? Bakit ako kinakabahan? May mangyayare bang masama?

Wala naman sana.

Andito ako sa veranda ngayon ng bahay namin. Jeez, hindi ako emo. Nagpapaalis lang ako ng kaba. Bakit ba kasi ako kinakabahan? Badtrip. Parang ako yung lalaban eh no? Aish!

"Shanah."

Lumingon ako at nakita ko si Top na nakangiti. Nanlaki 'yung mata ko. Nagulat lang ako kasi andito siya.

"H-hey. Anong ginagawa mo dito?"

"I'm nervous." Sabi niya pero nakangiti pa rin. Pero iba 'yung ngiti niya. Parang kinakabahan or parang guilty?

"Para mamaya? Good luck." Maikli kong sabi. Medyo nao-awkward-han kasi ako e. Bakit ganun?

"Thanks. That'll help."

"Uh."

Awkward naman kasi talaga. 'Yung huli naming pagkikita eh sabi niya he's leaving me na daw. Tapos ngayon eto siya? Mind fck. -___-

"I think you're confused.. It's just.. I can't stay away from you." Bigla niyang sabi habang nakatingin ng diretso sa'kin. Ay, mind reader lang?

"Bakit?"

"Shanah, do you love me?"

 Say what?!

"Hindi ko alam. Ano ba namang tanong 'yan!" Err?

"We didn't break up Shanah, we didn't." Seryoso niyang sabi at inemphasize pa 'yung 'we didn't.'

"Oh?"

"Did we? Diba hindi?" He said with his usual face, poker face.

"Eh bakit.."

"We just had the what they call cool-off, okay?"

"Ah. Okaaaay. Labo mo, lanya."

"I'm sorry."

He leaned closer and pulled me for a hug. Err. Ang biglaan naman nito. Bigla na lang nang-yayakap.

"I'm sorry Shanah. I'm very sorry. Hope you'll forgive me soon."

"What are you saying?"

"Nothing."

Kumalas siya sa hug then gave me a smack. What the hell?!

"Gulo mo."

"I'm leaving now."

"HAAA? Bakit ka ba pumunta dito?"

Nagsimula na siyang lumakad paalis. Tumigil siya after ilang steps pero di siya lumingon.

"I'm breaking up with you Shanah. I forgot to tell you that last time." Sobrang cold ng boses niya. He's emotionless, too. Dammit.

"Hate me Shanah. Hate me." then he left.

What the hell is that?! Hate him? Yes, I loath him now. Parang pinaglalaruan niya lang ako eh. FCK HIM!

(KESLEY'S POV)

Napanuod namin lahat. Pinapanuod namin si Top ngayon habang palabas siya ng bahay nila Kiah.

"How was it?" Tanong ko.

"It's slowly killing me."

His eyes are full of pain and hatred. Ngayon lang.. ngayon lang namin siya nakitang ganito. He is suffering very much. Usually, he's emotionless or looking arrogant pero iba ngayon e.

"Tiis lang. You need to do that." Tinapik siya ni Rence.

"I feel like being tortured. Sht."

Sumakay na kami sa motorbikes namin. Bago ako umandar, I heard Rence whispered something to Top.

"Tortured? Then be ready to feel like hell later."

What does he mean by that?
