Chapter 3

434 33 17

Sa totoo lang nawalan ako ng inspirasyon na ipagpatuloy pa to. As a Kissward shipper, masakit sa akin na hindi sila na push ng management as loveteam but all great things comes to those who wait. Kaya abang lang tayo. Fighting!

There are changes from chapter one so i advised you to read from the start.

It was not yet done, our paths keep on crossing. Twice it happened, and i have this premonition that i'll see him again.

I smirked.

Nanginginig ako hindi dahil sa excitement pero sa lamig ng panahon, it is already December 23 and Christmas is fast approaching.

"Kisses, uuwi ako ng Probinsya sa makalawa, okay ka lang ba dito mag-isa?" She was packing her things, i don't want her to leave pero it's been awhile i think na di siya nakakauwi.

Sumobra na sa isang buwan na hindi nag-uusap si Ate May at Kuya. I can see her dying everyday. And it pains me also to see her like that.

I nodded, I am still chewing the bite of cheeseburger na pina-drive thru ko pa rito. I can't sleep with an empty stomach.

We had dinner, pero kung ano ikina-bokya ko sa pag-ibig ay ganun naman ang sinuwerte ko sa pagkain. I can eat anything i want without restrictions.

"Bunso, tumataba ka na."

I pouted, "Ate naman eh..."

She just smiled, pero bakit ganun. Kahit ngumingiti ito dama at nakikita ko pa rin na problemado pa rin siya. Nilapitan ko ito at yinakap.

I squeezed her hand and smiled at her, "Ate, magkakaayos kayo ni Kuya." She smiled bago umalis na.

Sana magkaayos na sila.

I admit na hindi ako morning person, as much as i want not to sleep past 12mn, i really hate waking up early.

Kahit di ko man gusto na bumangon i have to, nagrereklamo na ang tiyan ko dahil sa gutom. It's already past 11 am and Ate May left a note sa door ko ng note.

She left early. Mabuti nalang talaga at mahal na mahal ako ni Ate May, she left some foods for me. Nagluto ito ng Pancakes, Sinigang na Hipon, At Chicken Joy.

I devoured everything sa isang upuan lang na kainan. I was so full that i was able to sleep again, im pretty much like a panda now.

I hibernate anywhere and anytime.

But a sudden disturbance ang gumising sa akin, my phone kept on ringing. I first ignored it pero ring lang ito ng ring.

"Hello."

It was a voice of a man, "urm..." I was still too lazy to talk.

And to even move.

"Is this Kristen Danielle Delavin's number?"

"Hrm.."

"I'm now asking you of your debt to me."

Para akong binuhusan ng tubig na sobrang lamig, the only person that i'm in debt with is that not-so-stranger-guy, because our paths always cross.

Especially if i'm in hopeless situations.

Umubo ako. "Excuse me." Napaupo ako sa kama dahil sa napakagandang wake up call na natanggap ko sa buong buhay ko.

"Hmm. Let's meet later, At The Boulevard at 3pm sharp." He said and ended the call.

Anong kasalanan ba ang nagawa ko sa past life ko para matamo ang nararanasan ko ngayon?

It's already 2pm in the afternoon, i'm still undecided kung pupunta ba ako o magpapalit nalang ng sim card.

"Bahala na nga." I muttered. Nagbihis na ako at prep myself bago umalis. Not that i want to look pretty. Ah basta, im in the mood na magpaganda.

I heaved a deep long sigh, third time we met and i forgot again to ask his name.

He asked me a favor, pero tumanggi ako.

Nag-aayos ako ng sarili dahil pupunta kami sa bahay ni Lola Mama sa Bulacan, doon na rin kami siguro sasalubong sa pasko.

And somewhat is a reunion for my mother's family.

Mahigit apat na oras ang naging biyahe dahil sa traffic, Christmas Eve traffic.

I felt my brother's discomfort. Kanina pa ito patingin-tingin sa phone nito at lakad ng lakad. I admit, it was also making me uncomfortable.

"Kuya, walang himala. Bring down your ego just this once." I said and walked out on him.

"Phew." I said. That was gutsy, so gutsy of me to say that to him. That was a first for me.

Pumunta ako sa Veranda ng bahay nila Lola, and from up there, i saw
Vivoree and her family together with Marco.

Of course...

Merry Christmas to me then, a very happy one.

This was so uncalled for, i only went down when my father called me for dinner. Kaya i was obliged to go down, my feet are so heavy. Parang ayaw mag function ng utak ko. Nakaka-tanga.

"Hey K!" Marco greeted me, and Vivoree kissed both of my cheeks. I shyly smiled. I abhor nothing between the two.

How i could face this, i dont know. Oo alam ko, im still not over it.

And it pains me, to see them. But what could i do. She makes him happy, i tried but it was not enough... No... Never will i make him truly happy.

Kuya not being present the whole night was expected, sinundan nito si Ate May sa probinsiya nito. And i really hope na maging maayos na sa dati ang kung ano ang meron sila.

Pero jusko po, paano ko naman haharapin ang problema na nasa harapan ko?

Should i just go home now? But... That would be rude in my part. Hindi naman nila kasalanan.

Pumunta ako sa pinakamalapit na convenience store.

I feel so alone right now, wala rin akong makausap. I just don't want this day to be mellow, ayoko mangdamay ng lungkot. But so as it seems hindi lang naman ako ang may kargo na problema.

Napatingin ako sa mga street children sa labas ng store at sa ibang tao na katulad ko ay mag-isa rin na nakatambay. Our eyes looks different, magkakatulad man kami na may pinagdadaanan.

Our eyes differ, our views differ in life. May mga tao na umaasa...that there's always hope. But some given up hoping and just deal with what's at their plate.

At ako? What have i learned.

We can love but not to be loved back, We can fall but no one will be there to catch us and we can cry but no one will wipe our tears.

There is all sorts of love in this world, and i'm dealing with the most painful one.

The unrequited love.
