Part 3 "Tres"

Izeiah's pov

For the love of... why did they set the alarm clock so early. It hasn't even been an hour since I slept.

Kinuha ko na ang uniform ko at pumunta sa banyo. Bago pa ako makapasok merong humawak bigla sa doorknob. Hinigpitan ko ang hawak ko at hindi ko binitawan ito at liningon ko ang taong sumisira ng umaga ko.

"I was first, you let go. Funeral will be held if you refuse."

"I was first, you let go. I'm going to buy you chocolates if you let me shower first."

Tiningnan ko ang orasan at nakitang marami pang oras pero mataas ang pride, hindi ako bibitaw. I pushed my way in but he just pull the door more.

"Do you even know the phrase, ladies first? Be a gentleman will you." Ipinilit kong ipasok ang katawan ko sa maliit na space.

"Let go and let me in. I'm literally dying here." I told him.

"Chocolates are in my bag." Mabilis akong lumabas sa banyo at pumunta sa bed niya. Nakita ko sa gilid ng mata ko ang ngiting tagumpay ni Ivan.

Hinaluglog ko ang bag at nakita ang isang supot ng hersheys. Ibinuhos ko ito sa bed ni Ivan at doon nagsimulang lantakan ito. Kain lang ako ng kain. Isang chocolate pumasok sa bibig isang chocolate ang natatanggalan ng wrapper. Feel kong para na akong machine dito dahil walang tigil ang paggalaw ng kamay ko.

Tapos na si Ivan at lumabas na naka tshirt na puti at pants ng uniform namin. Lumapit na ito saakin pero napatigil.

"God, Izeiah. The mess you've done in less done an hour is incomparable to the mess a kid can do in a day." He exclaimed. I stopped eating and looked at him.

"That was fast? I still have 23-- no 26 left." I told him.

"That was just a hundred ago. How in the universe did you even eat more than half of it?"

"Oh-- that I can't answer." I resumed eating.

"Mas malinis pang kumain ang isang bata kaysa sayo. Huwag mo ngang pagpunasan ang bedsheet ko. Mukha ng tae dito."

I didn't let him bother me with his Ate Hina-like statements.

"You might as well wash your hand first. Did you even eat any breakfast?" Umiling ako sakanya at pinagpatuloy. Ivan grabbed my hand and dragged me to the bathroom. I manage to grab about 5 chocolates.

Iniupo niya ako sa parang counter with sink ng banyo. Hinugasan niya ang kamay ko habang abala ako sa pagpupunit ng wrapper ng pesteng chocolate na ito. Narealize kong mahirap pala kung iisang kamay lang ang ginagamit mo.

"Ivan, can you open this for me?" I said to him and hold the hershey up to him. He stared at me and gave me the seriously-that's-your-priority?-look. Tumango tango ako sakanya, padabog niya itong hinablot saakin at binuksan. Ibinigay niya na saakin. Bumitaw siya sa paghuhugas sa aking kamay at nakita kong binuksan niya na ang tubig ng bathtub. Bumalik ulit siya sa paghuhugas.

"Why do I feel like I'm taking care of a kid?" He said and looked at me. I stared at him.

"I shouldn't have given you the chocolates."

"Is it suppose to be for someone else?"

He grinned and shook his head. He grabbed something from his back and wet it with water. Napatigil ako ng naramdaman ko ang pagdampi ng isang basang panyo sa mukha ko. Napatitig ako kay Ivan pero busy siya sa pagpunas ng chocolate sa bibig ko. Napansin ata ni Ivan ito at napatigil din.
