Here it is!

White and gray.

Narating ko rin ang vacation house and I've been staring at it for over an hour.

It looked nice and cozy. Mataas ang gate at kalahati lang ng bahay ang makikita. I can see a small garden sa balcony.

She must have been taking care of those for the past few days.

I knew she's really good at many things.

And where was I when she needed me the most?

Wait a minute!

Now what's my next step?

What if ayaw niya akong makita?

What if ipagtabuyan niya ako sa oras na makita niya ako?

What if she hates me now?

What if...

Crap!

Ngayon pa ba ako maduduwag? Ngayon pa bang nandito na ako at ilang hakbang na lang ang agwat naming dalawa?

She's all alone... She must have felt all alone... Especially at that time na sinaktan ko siya.

Damn!

Nauntog ko ang ulo ko sa manibela.

It made a loud honk.

All I could think about is to strangle myself until I choke and die and then come back to life and make it up to her.

Should I knock? Should I appear infront of her? Baka mabigla lang siya... I should do something... Something...

tok. tok. tok.

Nagulat ako nang may narinig akong katok sa bintana ng kotse ko.

It was a man in shirt, suncap, pants at may hawak itong mahabang walis na sa palagay ko ay taga-linis ng sidewalk.

I rolled down the window.

"Mr. Montereal?" tanong ng lalaki.

Nagtaka ako kung bakit niya ako kilala.

"Yes...?" nagtatakang sagot ko.

"Kami po ang team na ipinadala under Ms. Andres' request."

Oh...yeah...

I get it.

Naka-disguise ang lalaki para hindi kahina-hinala ang mga kilos nila. I have to say I'm impressed.

"Ah...yes. Thank you pare, you're doing it perfectly good." inabot ko ang kamay ko at kinamayan ko siya.

Ngumiti ang lalaki at tinanggap ang kamay ko.

"We're done for today, Sir. We've been instructed na bumalik na sa base dahil nahuli na ang threat sa subject, which here is Ms. Alonzo, and we are authorized to leave by the time ng arrival niyo, Sir. You are earlier than we expected so...ii-inform ko na ang team."

Lumabas ako ng kotse para makaharap ang lalaki.

"Thank you, Sir for your good service. You've done well. Please send your companions my gratitude, Mr. ?"

"Sales. Dave Sales, Sir. I'm with Mr. Jerez and Mr. Gamboa. So...kailangan ko nang umalis, Sir. Mag-iingat po kayo. Ms. Alonzo is doing great. I'm sure matutuwa po siya kapag nagkita kayo. Sige po, Sir!" kumaway na siya at naglakad paalis.
