[Aela Herrera's POV]

Nangunot ang noo ko ng makita kong niyakap ni Declan si Dia. What was that?

"Ako ang kasama mo pero sa iba ka nakatingin." Napatigil ako ng magsalita si Hanz. Ayan nanaman siya sa pagsasalita ng mga bagay-bagay na hindi ko alam kung aasahan ko ba. I'm a playgirl and I know how to use those words too.

Paano ako maniniwala sa mga salita niya kung alam ko namang hindi yun totoo.

"What was that, Prince?" Tanong niya kay Declan na lumapit saamin. Nangunot ang noo ko. Sino?

"Who's Prince?" Sumingit ako sa usapan nila. I feel something weird about the name. Ewan.

"Si Declan. Prince Declan Pangilinan. Why did you asked?" Hanz answered and I just dismissed it. Tch.

Bakit ko itinanong? Wala lang. Peste. Ang ganda ko kasi.

...

"So..." He trailed off. Naiwan kaming dalawa dito sa Auditorium. Umalis agad yung dalawa pagkatapos ng punishment. I sighed. There's something about Dia that I can't figure out.

"You are bothered, yes?" He continued. I just nod at him and smile. He stood frozen for a moment and I don't know why. He's eyes showed emotions I won't name. Ayoko.

"You're starting to like me." The words slipped out of my mouth. I expect him to deny it but instead he stepped closer, and closer, and closer.

"Yeah, so what? Masama ba? Its not like may batas na nagbabawal sakin para mahalin ka." He breathed. I can almost smell his breath and manly perfume. Mahirap gumalaw, one move and our lips would meet.

My heartbeat doubled. My face started to heat up. "W-what are you saying? Forget about y-your feelings. Pinsan ka ni D-Drey, I know your kind. You don't do commitments and so do I. Hindi tayo p-pwede."

His eyes flared anger. "I don't give a fuck about the brat. Ano naman kung pinsan ako ni Drey? We can be real, Aela. We can be perfect." My breathing hitched. Except the fact ba crush ko siya, Mali to. In every effin way Mali to.

"H-hindi pwede. It's not you, Hanz. Its about me. Ayoko." Utal-utal na sabi ko. Ayoko. Natatakot ako. Natatakot na akong maiwan.

Natatakot ako. I'm selfish because I don't want to see people leaving me. 'Yun ang dahilan kung bakit ako naging playgirl. Ayoko ng iniiwan.

"You're just hesitant about the idea of falling in love? Bakit? Bakit ka takot?" He asked and I closed my eyes in frustration. Shit.

"H-hindi ko alam, okay?!" In front of him I bursted. Agad akong tumakbo papunta ng HQ pero natigilan ako ng tawagin ako ng students sa field. I stop midair. Nakahilera sila at may hawak na tig-iisang illustration board.

Isa-isa nila yong binaligtad kaya napanganga ako sa nabasa ko.

Prinsesa ko payagan mo sana akong ligawan ka. Baby, take a chance on me.

Isa-isa silang lumapit saakin at binigyan ako ng rainbow tainted white rose. My mouth twitched into a smile. Mabilis akong nahabol ni Hanz at humarap siya saakin. Nagsimula nang maghiyawan at magtilian ang mga estudyante.

"Did I prove my worth, swear. I'm willing to do a lot more cheesy things to prove my pure intentions to you." He said still catching his breath from a long run.

Tell me, how can I ignore this man? I can't, really.

"You really want to be my lover, eh? Sige. I'll have 10 wishes from you, and if ever matupad mo yun. I'll let you court me." I challengingly smiled at him. He smirked and cock his eyebrows at me.

"Bring it on, babe. Your wish is my command." He winked and the students went gaga. I shook my head and my smile turn into a chuckle, my chuckle turn into a velvety laugh.

"Is that you, Mr. Hanzel Yvo Pangilinan?" I teasingly asked and he pouted.

"I'm being a gentleman to you, didn't I impressed the royalty?" He murmured in a low chuckle. God. He sounded so sexy.

"How about a talk to my Leader first?" I asked and he just smirked at me.

"Lana loves me. She would be easy to talk with." A loud thud was created in my heart. Gah! I'm starting to enjoy this!

"Let's see?"

"Para sayo. Ikaw pa ba? Mahal kaya kita. Kung pwede ka lang ibulsa ginawa ko na. I don't like the stairs those bastards are giving you, Aela. Akin ka lang. Akin."

Its gonna be exciting.
