Chapter Seventeen

Its Saturday today at wala kaming pasok sa office. kaya nagmomovie marathon kaming dalawa. and right now.

maya maya naman inantok ako. pag gising ko madilim na sa paligid tas wala na din si Lance sa tabi ko. bumangon na ko para sana bumaba kaso biglang may yumakap sa bewang ko saka kiniss ako sa pisngi.

"Hello Sleepyhead." napangiti naman ako sa kanya.

"Hi Love." i kissed his cheeks and faced him. nakangiti sya pero sobra naman ata. nakakapagduda yung ngiti nya eh.

"Anu nanaman yun?" i asked. suspicious.

"what?" he said. tumatawa.

"there's something in your smile. nakakapagduda na." napangiti sya saka nag maang maangan. hala ka.

"wala ah!" sabi nya pa.

"Yung totoo?" i said. nagdududa na. ngumiti tuloy sya saka niyakap ako.

"i'm taking you out to dinner Love." i smiled and kissed his cheeks.

"wait. magbibihis lang ako." aalis na sana ako sa yakap nya pero di naman nya ko binitawan.

"Ganyan ka na." may kinuha sya sa bulsa nya saka tinakip sa mata ko.

"Hala. Love. anu ba to?" i asked. tinawanan lang ako.

"pupunta tayo sa dinner place natin." i can sense he's smilling. parang baliw lang naman to.

binuhat nya ko nung nasa stairs kami pababa. then naglakad ulit kami.

"Love naman. baka madapa ako." i pouted. na tinawanan lang nya saka kiniss ako bigla.

"i wont let that happen. trust me." i just nodded. he guided me again hanggang sa huminto kami. he held my hand and put my thumb somewhere tas biglang mag nag click. naglakad ulit kami hanggang sa huminto kami tas tinanggal nya yung nakalagay sa mata ko.

i blinked a lot of times para mag adjust yung mata ko sa paligid. only to be stunned and my jaw literally dropped.

its was a little paradise. there's a man made lake. a little gazebo. a hammock. and roses and flowers everywhere. may candlelit dinner din dun. everything ia jus0

"like our dinner place?" he asked. smilling. niyakap ko nalang sya.

"bat ba ang swerte ko sayo?" i asked. naiiyak nanaman ako. ang effort nya talaga.

"i dont know? maybe kasi gwapo lang talaga ako?" natatawang sabi nya pa. i kissed his cheeks and keep on hugging him. tumatawa lang sya.

"halika na nga. kain muna tayo." tumango nalang ako. inakbayan nya ko papunta sa dinner namin. pagkakain namin dinala naman nya ko sa isang sulok nung garden. may nakalatag dun na inflatable foam. humiga kami dun saka nag star gazing.

"Know what Love?" mayamaya sabi nya. napatingin ako sa kanya.

"What?" i asked.

"I never thought i'll be happy like this. sa tabi mo lang pala naipon ang happiness." he said smilling. i touched his face and smiled at him.

"i'm the luckiest Lady because i have you." he smiled and kissed my forehead.

"And Love. you know what? i've been dreaming." he said softly.

"Dreaming of what?" i asked.

"Doing this with you." i smiled and hugged him.

"and love. i've been dreaming too." i smiled while burying my face in his neck.

"Dreaming of what?" he asked.

"making love under the moonlight?" i said shyly. he laughed loudly. i pouted.

"now you're making fun of me." i said while pouting. he chuck'ed and kissed my lips before putting me under him.

"are you sure your ready for this?" he asked seriously. i smiled and nodded.

"its long overdue Love. i'm ready. be careful okay? its my first." i said shyly. he smiled and kissed my lips.

"i know. thank you for giving it to me. I love you Love."

"I love you too."

when i woke up. its already 6 in the morning. i'm still naked and we have a blanket covering us. Lance is also naked under and he's sleeping beside me. his arms around my waist.

i cant help but smile when i remember what happened last night. its was so magical. i cant believe it'll happen.

i smiled and touched his cheeks. i traced his facial features with my pointing finger.

biglang hinuli ni Lance yung kamay. he intertwined his fingers to mine before pulling me closer.

"ready for round 2?" he asked smilling before he opened his eyes.

i blushed and hid my face in his chest. he just chuckled.

"nahihiya ka pa rin Love?" he asked while laughing. di na ko sumagot. i just pinched his waist. lalo tuloy tumawa.

then he started kissing my shoulders and up to my neck.

sabi ko nga round two eh.

Since nung incident na yun lagi na kaming nasa secret garden pag day off or walang pasok. katulad ngayon. nandito ko sa secret garden kasi tulog si Lance sa taas. ako naman mas gusto kong magbasa dito.

siguro mga 10mins na kong nagbabasa nung tumabi saken si Lance sa duyan. pinabayaan ko lang.

"Love." he called. lumingon ako sa kanya.

"I love you." he said sincerely. napangiti nalang ako.

"i love you." i kissed his lips and lay on his chest. his arms around my neck and waist and my arms around his waist.

"you're the best past of my life, Love." i whispered. i can feel he smiled before he kisses my forehead.

its always like this.

we were happy.
