The whole world turned upside down after the kiss that I shared with Grant. It's like everything shifted after what happened that night. Hindi ko alam kung may nagbago ba talaga o pakiramdam ko lang iyon.

It has been two days and I still haven't move on until now. I keep on reliving that... that moment with Grant every chance that I get. Sa tuwing mag-isa ako ay hindi ko maiwasan isipin iyon. Kahit bago matulog ay bumabalik sa akin ang mga nangyari.

I could still remember how his lips felt against mine, how sweet and addicting his kisses were, how he took my breath when he slipped his tongue inside my mouth... I remember it all. I don't think I can ever forget.

Even before my mother died, all I could ever think about was flying. She instilled that dream inside my head. To fly. I wanted to feel what my mother felt. The rush and happiness that she told me about when she was still alive.

Before him, I've done almost all of the craziest things that a girl like me could do. All because doing crazy things was the closest thing to what mommy's stories were like. I did every reckless stunts to make me breathless. I needed the adrenaline rush to hear my wings flutter. I did anything just to feel my heart wildly race against my chest. But now... All I ever need is him. Just him.

Just hearing his voice takes my breath away, having him near me makes my wings spread behind my back, seeing him is enough to make my heart go wild. He made me fly and he did it so effortlessly. 

One kiss, damn it, all it took was one kiss and he's got me completely wrapped around his fingers. I'm flying and endlessly falling at the same time. I don't know if I can stop and I don't wanna. 

"I've been dying to do that." Grant whispered, his lips only an inch away from mine and our nose were touching. Nakapikit ako at hindi ko alam kung nakapikit din siya tulad ko. Naninikip ang dibdib ko, parang sasabog iyon sa sobrang bilis ng tibok ng puso ko at hindi ako makahinga.

"Really?" my voice was drunk and lazy. Parang hindi ako ang nagsalita. I sounded like I'm in some kind of a trance!

"Hmmm..." nakakaakit na huni nito. Hindi pa kumakalma ang puso ko ay nagwala ulit ito nang ilapat niya ulit ang labi sa akin ng ilang segundo. 

My knees weakened. Grant immediately tightened his hold around my waist, like he knew I was in the verge of falling down. He knew his effect on me and it's so embarrassing but I don't care right now because I'm still in a haze from his kisses.

Natigil ang mga iniisip ko nang biglang may pumalakpak ng isang beses malapit sa mukha ko. Napapikit-pikit ako dahil doon. Umuwang ang labi ko nang makita si Logan na nakakunot ang noo habang nakatingin sa akin.

"Did you even hear what I just said, Fallon?" my cousin frowned, his irritation was obvious.

"Huh? What's it again?" I asked him, it's my turn to crease my forehead this time. That earned me a groan from him.

"What's up with you?" he squinted his eyes at me. "Still hangover from your road trip?"

Hindi ako sumagot at napanguso na lang. Hindi ko alam kung paano sagutin iyon nang hindi nababanggit ang pangalan ni Grant. Baka kasi madulas ako. Sa oras na mabanggit ko si Grant, paniguradong tatanungin ako ng tatanungin ni Logan. I know how much he badly wants to know the guy that I'm 'seeing'. Nung araw na inihatid ko sila sa airport ni Daddy ay tinanong niya ako tungkol doon. 

I'm not yet ready to introduce Grant to Logan yet. Lalo na ngayon at hindi ako sigurado kung ano ba talaga ang namamagitan sa amin. Yes, we kissed, but does that make us official? I don't think so.

Logan invited me for lunch today since etong araw ang vacant ko kung saan hindi ko kasabay sila Noelle. Ipinaalam ko na rin kay Grant tungkol dito para hindi siya mag-abalang pumunta ng campus. He just shortly agreed and reminded me that he's going to be picking me up for my Saturday gig later.
