CHAPTER 23: Akin ka na lang

YUE’S P.O.V.
Akin ka na lang by itchyworms now playing…

Ah-ah! Shete naman! I hate this! I hate this kind of feeling! Antae!

Bakit ako nagba-blush? Bakla ba ako? Amfooo~!

“Mama, away kayo bato?” nabigla ako ng may tyanak este batang lumapit sakin na naka-lollipop. Tinuturo nya yung bato na kanina ko pang pinagtitripang sipain.

Hindi. Ako away ni bato.” tinaasan ako ng kilay nung bata tapos sinipa nya ako sa binti ko.

“Baliw!”

”Ouch!” malditang bata tinakbuhan lang ako, habulin ko nga.

Gaganti ako. 

Isip-bata. Haha. Di ko naman sasaktan eh sasalvage-in ko lang, joke. Kukurutin ko lang sa pisngi. Kyoooot eh.

Bilis naman tumakbo ng tyanak di ko mahabol pero napatigil ako sa pagtakbo nang may dumaan sa tabi ko… di nya tinitignan ang dinadaanan nya kasi umiiyak sya… napano kaya sya, kawawa naman… teka, si Kyla ba yun? 0_0

Bumisita sya kay Sai diba? Napano yun?

Hinabol ko naman ngayon si Kyla, kinalimutan ko na yung tyanak. Ewan ko, nung makita ko syang umiiyak eh nakalimutan ko na yung dapat kong gawin at ang alam ko na lang eh ang habulin sya at yakapin.

At ng mahabol ko sya eh hinawakan ko kamay nya para mapigilan sya sa pagtakbo at hinila ko sya palapit sakin at niyakap sya mula sa likod, ”Stop running. It would not lead you to anywhere.”

Ewan ko kung nabosesan nya ako o ano pero tumigil nga sya sa pagtakbo at nag-iiyak lang at maya-maya eh humarap sya sakin at yumakap, ”Yue! I don’t understand!”

”Who? Cedric or Sairyl?”

”Both of them!” then in a sudden, with no warnings, the rain poured down so hard.

Hinila ko sya paalis pero di sya kumikibo, ”Hey! Let’s go. It’s raining!”

”Let me. Let the rain pour on me!” I have no choice, lumapit ako sa kanya at binuhat ko sya, ”H-hey!”

”For the record, rain is for happy persons! I don’t get people who cry under the rain as if it could wash away your problems wherein the truth is, it only washes away your tears! Geez.”dinala ko sya sa may pinakamalapit na waiting shed.

'di naman sa sinisiraan ko ang pangit na 'yan
'wag ka dapat sa'kin magduda
Hinding-hindi kita pababayaan! 



Pinagmasdan ko sya habang parang bata syang umiiyak sa upuan ng waiting shed.

”Here’s a hankie.” I sat beside her and handed her my handkerchief but when she was about to dry off her tears I stopped her and she looked at me with a question mark on her face, ”If you are not yet done crying, don’t dry it off yet with a hankie because it might get wet on the first cry and after that you might not  be able to use it anymore to dry your tears on the second cry. Just use it when you are sure that you are really done crying.”

She put down the handkerchief on her lap and she starts to cry again,”If you need someone to tell things, try me. I’m free to listen.”

”Why does it hurts to be fooled by the people you care for the most?”

I didn’t speak. I’m just here to listen…

”I don’t remember hurting them before but why are they hurting me?”

 Akin ka na lang (akin ka na lang)
Iingatan ko ang puso mo
Akin ka na lang (akin ka na lang)

“It’s unfair.”

“They were ex’s already! Ex’s are not supposed to fall back together! Pero bakit… bakit ganun! Nung makita ko sila sa hospital they were so happy together! Parang sila pa! and the way Cedric looked at Sairyl’s eyes… it was so sincere! Which that sincerity I never felt! Was I just a past time? A material used to cover something that went away and when that something came back, I’ll be thrown away afterwards?”



“This sucks! Why did I fall for my bestfriend’s ex?! It could have been any other guys out there, it could have been other guys from school or the guy in our neighbourhood or maybe the guy at the gym or that guy walking under the rain!” tinuro nya yung guy na naglalakad with his i-pod who's under the rain with an umbrella with him. Kyla’s having a major breakdown and total heartbreak and I can’t take this anymore….

I hug her once again, ”Heartbreaks are normal but crying endlessly for a guy who broke your heart is stupidity.”

♪ Akin ka na lang
Liligaya ka sa pag-ibig ko
Akin ka na lang
Wala nang hihigit pa sa 'yo
Wala nang hihigit pa sa 'yo 
(akin ka na lang) 


”It could have been you Yue…”

Yeah. It could have been me. I would never give you such a heartbreak.

”Ssh. Stop crying already ok?” I held her on her head and placed my hands on her cheeks, wiping her tears and I placed my forehead next to hers and our eyes were just looking at each other. She did stop crying.

”First, you told me to stop running, now stop crying. And I just did… I just hope you could also tell me to stop loving Cedric and in an instant, I’ll stop from it.”

”I wish it would be that easy..” I don’t know but there seem to be this certain connection between the two of us when we look at each other’s eyes.

I start to bent my head down going near her lips… she closes her eyes…


And when it was just  an inch away I got surprised when she opens her eyes and pulls me away. She stood up and said, ”I’m sorry.”

Then she ran away, leaving my handkerchief that fell on the floor… maybe she’s not done yet. But the handkerchief can wait… Am I really falling for my bestfriend’s suitor’s cousin who happens to be my bestfriend’s ex-boyfriend’s girlfriend?

What a flow. Sairyl, you are unknowingly sticking your nose to other’s life.

That night I went to visit Sairyl again in the hospital… I brought her some fresh fruits… I was about to knock on her room when I heard a sound of breaking glass on the floor…


And I heard sairyl spoke, ”It can’t be… I have what?!”
























“Heartvalve disease…” I heard the doctor replied, “it has been intact to you since you were born… your parents had it treated when you were little and the attacks did stop but after being stabbed near your heart, your cardiac system got damaged which lead to a very very bad effect… it brought back your disease… the attacks are back, from now on, you might suffer from some attacks and there could be a time that one of those attacks could actually….

























































end your life..."














And the basket full of fresh fruits I brought fell.
