Three months later...

Nakapag-adjust na ng tuluyan ang mga bata. Nailipat at naipasok na namin sila sa eskwelahan dati nila Gray bilang mga preschool students. Of course, with connections.

And here I am, preparing their breakfast. We moved to this house three days after naming makarating dito sa Manila. Ang bahay namin na ito ay nakatayo sa loob rin ng village kung saan nakatayo ang bahay ng mga magulang ni Gray.

That night, everything changed. As if bumalik kami sa dating kami. Gray became much sweeter than before.

The only problem that I'm thinking about right now is our no label relationship. I mean, I don't know. We said that we will start things all over again but I never heard of our status right now. Should I ask?

"Hey." Gray hugged me from behind habang nagluluto ako ng pancakes for them.

"Hey." I smiled. "Do you want something?" I added.

"Nothing much. Gusto mo ba ako na ang magpatuloy dyan so you could prepare yourself?"

"I'm already done. Just put these on the table and I'll go get the kids." I said. And before I could go out, he chuckled and said,

"Already done na rin po ang mga bata, beautiful." may kasama pang pagkindat na aniya.

"Sus, binola mo pa ako." kunwari'y pagtataray ko pero ang totoo, kinilig yan si bakla.

"Hey, that's not pambobola!"

"Oo na lang." at dumiretso na ako sa kwarto namin. We share the same room. We act like real wife and husband, we do what they do. Label na lang talaga ang kulang.

Should I initiate? Should I be the one to ask first?

I was taking a bath when the bathroom's door opened.

"Can I join?"

"Gray! Mamaya ka na pagtapos ko." pagsaway ko. Tsaka ko lang na-realize na kaya siguro nya ako pinauna rito para makasunod sya. Napailing na lang ako sa kapilyohang taglay ng lalaking to.

"You know, beautiful, we should conserve water. So let me join you." hindi ko na sya napigilan nang maghubad sya at sumalo sa akin sa shower.

At hindi ko alam kung gaano kami katagal sa loob dahil mayroon pa kaming ibang klaseng pinagsaluhan.

-

"What took so long, mommy and daddy?" yamot ni Leigh nang makababa kami.

"We already ate breakfast na po kasi ang tagal nyo. Leigh is starving na so we decided to eat. Alam nyo naman po na hindi mapipigilan ang Leigh na gutom."

"Kuya! That's not true. Hmp!" pag-iirap nya sa kuya nya sabay tingin ulit sa amin, "You took so long po. What did you do?" inosenteng tanong nya.

"Just took a bath, baby." I said but Gray being Gray,

"Hoping that you'll have a sibling." kinurot ko sya sa tagiliran kaya napa-aray sya.

"Manahimik ka dyan." bulong ko.

"Oh! I want a sister po, daddy ha?" napa-facepalm na lang ako dahil sinakyan nga ni Leigh ang sinabi ng tatay nya.

"I want a brother so we could all join forces to scare those boys that will hurt our princess." paglapit naman ni Van kay Gray para bumulong.

"We will all be late for school and work so let's go?" I interrupted para mawala ang ganoong klase ng diskusyon. Jusko, kung ano ano kasi ang sinasabi nitong si Gray eh.
