Chapter Twenty two

"oh my gosh!" tili ni Anton. i rolled my eyes. oa kasi si Anton. para sinabi ko lang naman na natulog kaming magkatabi eh.

"omo! kakabati lang tabi na matulog agad?" sabi ni sammy sabay ngisi. ugh.

"bubuo daw kasi sila ng baby. para happy family." natatawang sabi ni Tiffany.

nagtawanan sila. -____-

ngumiti lang si Alex saka inakbayan ako.

"wag nyo ngang asarin si Venice. ayan nanaman kayo eh." pananaway nya saka umakbay saken.

"si mother theresa naman. napaka kj." Anton said and pouted..

"Are you sure about this Ven?" Andrea said seriously.

"Andrea-"

"Andi. Ven. call me Andi, Venice." she cutted me immediately.

and the guys shot me with an i-told-you-so-Look and alexis just shook his head.

"Andrea. andrea is my friend not Andi." i said softly.

"right. we dont know Andi. sis" Alexis added.

"but Andrea is dead and gone." she said coldly.

"whatever. then we'll just call you girl. but i dont wanna call you Andi." i said firmly. nagkibit balikat lang sya.

"and to answer your question. girl. napagisipan ko yun. i think giving this another chance is fine." i said softly. nagkibit balikat lang sya saka kinuha yung magazine sa table at nagbasa.

"whatever it is. sana di ka mag sisi." she added. napailing nalang sila Anton.

Lance's POV

"Anak. asawa mo yan. pwede mong lapitan yan. wag mo lang tanaw tanawin dito." Sabi ni nanay Linda

"Nay!" napatingin tuloy ako bigla sa likod ko. nandun nga sya at nakita nya kong nakatingin kay Venice..

"kako. pwede mo namang lapitan yung asawa mo. kesa naman tanaw tanaw ka lang jan Anak." sabi pa nyang nakangiti.

"Nay Naman."

"Aysus! ibigay mo na yan." pang aasar pa nya sabay turo ng flowers na nasa likod ko. napakamot nalang ako sa ulo ko.

"hala sige! wag kang puro ligaw tingin! lumakad ka! kelan ka pa naging torpe?" nakangiting sabi ni Nanay saka tinulak ako. wala na kong nagawa kasi nakita na ko ni Venice. nakatingin na sya sakin eh. saka ngumiti.

UGH! my heart just Melted.

alanganin akong lumapit sa kanya.

"why?" she asked smilling. mas maganda na yung aura nya ngayon. di katulad nung kadadating nya lang at puro kami away.

"Uhm...Ahh..hmm...Ehhh.." awkward na sabi ko na ikinatawa nya lang.

"Ano yun?" she said while chuckling.

i look stupid already. argh.

"Here. i bought you flowers!" i gave it to her immediately then turned my back. tumawa sya ng malakas kaya mabilis akong naglakad papunta sa hagdan pero bigla naman nya kong hinila paharap.

nakangiti sya saken habang hawak yung stargazers na binili ko.

"para saan to?" she said playfully. nang aasar nanaman.

"wala." i hissed and turned my back again. nahihiya na nga kaso ako mang aasar pa sya. hinila nya ulit ako paharap. nakapatong na yung stargazer's sa mesa.

hinawakan nya yung mukha ko saka kiniss ako sa ilong bago niyakap.

"thank you Love." she whispred. i just hugged her and kissed her shoulders.

"Anything for you." i whispered..

*****

"Love, kakain na." i said when i entered our room. bumalik na kami sa kwarto namin since nagkabati kami eh.

"i'm not hungry Love. kain ka na!" she shouted nasa banyo kasi sya.

syempre di ako papayag nun.

lumapit ako sa intercom saka tumawag sa baba.

"yes sir?" the maid who picked it up said.

"pakiakyat na nga lang yung dinner.namin ni Ven dito. thanks" binaba ko na yung intercom.

nung nandito na yung pagkain. pinaayos ko sa mesa. nag iwan ako ng post it sa flowers vase bago lumabas sa terrace.

'di pwedeng di ka kakain. sabay tayo. i'll be at the terrace.

Lance'

umupo lang ako sa upuan don habang hinihintay matapos si Ven.

nagulat nalang ako nung biglang may yumakap saken sa leeg saka kiniss ako sa pisngi.

"kain na tayo Love." she said smilling.

napangiti ako sa tumayo. naglakad kami papasok habang akbay ko sya.

pagkakain namin pinaayos lang namin to saka humiga na.

"Did i ever tell you how much i love you?" i whispered softly before i could even stop myself. she smiled tenderly and sat. she opened her arms.

"Lika nga dito." she said softly.

lumapit naman ako sa kanya. niyakap nya ko.

"you're so sweet." she cupped my face and kissed every part of it. she kissed my nose twice. then she hugged me again

"you never told me how much. but you showed me. lets take one step at a time love. we can do this. we will do this." she said softly.

i hugged her waist and kissed her shoulder.

"I love you Love." i whispered.

she cupped my face and smiled at me.

"I love you too." then she kissed my lips.

I'm a lucky boy! ;))

******

"Ang gulo mo naman eh." Venice said laughing. i just smiled and pulled her closer. nakahiga na kami ulit kasi matutulog na kami. pero kinikiliti ko kasi sya.

"what?" i asked innocently. she pouted and laid on her stomach above me.

"wag ka kasing makulit. dadaganan kita eh." she said while pouting. natawa nalang ako saka niyakap sya.

"eh hindi na." i said laughing.

"Eh bitawan mo na ko. hihiga na ko" sabi naman nya. nakapalumbaba sya ng dalawang kamay sa dibdib ko while pouting.

she looks so adorable right now.

"Jan ka na matulog." i said smilling. she grunted.

"ang kulit mo!" sabi nya.

i chuckled and cupped her face before giving her a smack on the lips. kahit moonlight lang liwanag namin. i can see na namula sya. natawa tuloy ako ulit.

"Ugh! mauubos dugo ko sayo." she said exasperated saka humiga sa dibdib ko. i laughed then kissed her hair

"Dream of me Love." i whispered before i drifted to sleep.
