"Aww, that's so cute, Kris." pinakita ko kay Mama yung mga baby clothes na nakita ko sa internet. I can't stop browsing for clothes kahit hindi ko pa naman alam kung ano ang gender ng kapatid ko. I'm just super excited.

Nandito kaming lahat sa sala ngayon. Kakatapos lang naming kumain and we decided to look for clothes, atleast mom and I. Si daddy at Sebastian ay busy na nanonood ng football sa tv.

Tinignan ko sila. Sobrang seryoso ang mga ito sa panonood. Tsk.

"Sana talaga malaman na natin kung girl ba or boy ang baby so we could buy clothes and decorate the room already," bumuntong hininga ako, "I hope it's a girl tho, how about you ma?"

"Girl or boy, kahit ano. As long as the baby is healthy, i'll be okay with it." She said.

I smiled, "Of course, pinagdarasal ko rin na healthy yung baby. Atleast you won't have to take care of a sick child again."

"Kris..."

Minsan hindi ko rin talaga mapigilan tong bibig ko, eh. Shit. Every eyes are on me now. I sighed, "I'm serious, I want the baby healthy. No need to be all...touchy about it."

Tapos biglang sobrang tahimik. Great Kristen, you're so good at ruining the moment. Tumayo ako since hindi ko na talaga alam kung akong sasabihin ko, "I'll just go get some cookies, you guys want anything?"

"No, we're good." Dad answered.

Awkward akong tumango at tahimik na nagpunta sa kitchen. Nasipa ko yung counter ng makapasok ako ng kusina, naiinis talaga ako sa sarili ko. Bakit kailangan ko pang sabihin yun? Ugh. At shit. Ang sakit ng paa ko. Ugh. May pasipa sipa pa kasing nalalaman yan tuloy.

I groaned in frustration at yun yung nadatnan ni Sebastian. Hinimas ko yung paa ko. Gusto ko ng umiyak sa sakit. Asar. Ang arte kasi, eh. Lumapit ito saakin and as if he can my mind, niyakap niya ako. He didn't say a word, basta niyakap niya lang ako. I just need him to hold me.

A few minutes passed.

"Ayos ka na?"

Tumango ako, "Badtrip kasi. Lagi ko na lang nasisira yung mood ng lahat. Nakita mo ba yung itsura ni Mama kanina? Para siyang binuhusan ng malamig na tubig."

Hinalikan ako nito sa ulo at hinimas himas ang likod ko. Very soothing, "It was uncalled for but you sure didn't ruin anything. I'm sure naiintindihan naman ng Mama mo 'yun."

"Tss. Bakit ba lagi mong alam kung anong dapat sabihin tuwing ganito ako? You always know what to do or what to say." I mumbled.

"Because i'm Sebastian."

I chuckled, "That doesn't even make any sense."

Tumawa ito and just like that, i'm all good. It's scary how he can control me without even knowing it, "By the way, sorry about last night. Hindi ko nakalimutan na may kasalanan ako sayo. Sobrang pagod lang ako kagabi and i'm really sorry."

"For?" inosenteng tanong ko dito.

He sighed, pulling me closer, "Missing our lunch date? Alam kong nagluto ka at pinaghandaan mo yung kahapon and I ditched you. I'm really sorry. Its just that...kinailangan naming umalis ng bansa dahil meron daw lead, then it was just a mistake. Napagod kami sa wala."

"Ibang bansa?"

He nodded, "May information kaming nakuha doon tungkol sa sindikato na sinusundan namin. Obviously they're trying to put their back into life kaya kami nagpunta ng Singapore. Wala na kaming nadatnan doon dahil mali ang impormasyon na binigay."

"Sana talaga maging maayos na. Alam mo bang kinakabahan ako diyan sa trabaho mo? Lalo't mga sindikato ang mga kalaban niyo at---"

"Wala ka nang tiwala saakin? Believe it or not, i'm trained to kill, Kristen."
