I can't sleep.. 1:58 am na.. and si Kenji pa rin naiisip ko.. ano bang ibig niyang sabihin dun sa 'I can't breathe?' niya? he's weird. That's why I left him standing. Hinde niya alam kung anong feeling ng isang taong nagcoconfess sa taong love niya then biglang ang weird ng reply.. It was supposed to be serious because it came from my heart you wacko!

"I can't breathe.. Psh. My heart is aching, dummy."

"I... I.. I love you. "

"Ano ka ba. Bakit ba masyado kang nagiging seryoso? Ok ka lang ba?"

"Because I am serious. Seryoso ako sa mga sinabi ko..sa nafefeel ko. I love you Kenji.."

"Yung binitawan mong salita, parang katumbas sa pag sabing hinde ka makahinga. Alam mo ba yun? Sige na. umuwi ka na. Goodnight."

"Katumbas sa pag sabing hinde ka makahinga.." I got up from bed then turned on my monitor. "He's on.. message ko kaya?" I changed my status to online, para he'll be the one to message me.

5 minutes had passed. Pero wala pa rin. I guess he's asleep na or nag tatampo.. bumalik ako sa mya bed tapos humiga.

My cellphone suddenly vibrated.. someone's calling me. I checked my phone and I saw the name 'CROO CROO' flashing on the screen. It's him! He called!

I flipped my phone

"Athena.."

"Kenji yah.. mi an hae.." [mi an hae = sorry]
"Algettso..Bogoshipda.." [al get soh = I understand; bogoshipda = I miss you]
"Na do." [me too]
"Yun lang alam ko. hehe! Hinde na ako makapag construct ng sentence sa Korean. Gawa mo?" "Wala naka higa lang.. ikaw?" 'Iniisip ka.' i said to myself
"Eto.. iniisip ka. Lumilipad yung kukote ko papunta sayo.." OK.. I can't stop myself from smiling. Sweet pala siya pag madaling araw eh.
"Baka naman sa iba yan lumilipad ha.."
"Hinde ah. Sayo noh. Ay wait.. I can't breathe.."
"I love you too.."
"BUTI NAMAN AT NA-GETS MO NA!" OMG! Does he have to do the shouting part??? JESUS! "HEY! You don't have to shout!!" I heard him giggled
"Slow ka kasi eh. nakakaasar. Iniwan mo pa ako kanina dun." I giggled
"Eh nakakaasar ka kasi eh. Ang tino nung pagkasabi ko, tapos biglang sasabihin mo sakin na masyado akong seryoso.." *yawns*
"Sorry na nga diba? Wag ka na magalit, ok? Sige, matulog ka na.. baka mag bago pa isip ko at kausapin pa kita ng matagal sa phone.."
"Okay.. good night.." I was about to end the call..

"Athena, I really can't breathe.." then he hung up.
Dahil dun, nakatulog ako ng naka smile. YES, I KNOW. I AM A LOSER... IN LOVE.

I woke up around 10 am. Of course, etong si Sara, nag tanong kaagad tungkol sa nangyari samin ni Kenji yesterday. Eto naman ako, nag kwento. Siyempre masaya ako sa mga nangyayari sa amin eh.. dapat naman siguro akong maging proud dahil dun, right?

Nakapag lunch na ako pero hinde pa rin nag-paparamdam si Kenji. Baka tulog pa. grabe, couch potato. 2 pm nag check na ko ng computer, baka kasi may nag message na or whatnot.. si Kenji, as usual.. naka online. Pero BUSY siya. busy saan?
