Nandito na ako sa may restau sa tapat ng ospital, sa St. John’s Hospital. Hindi na ako nagpahatid kay Jims, pumunta ako dito mag-isa. I have to deal with her alone. Ayokong may kalaalam na iba maiban sa aming tatlo nila Rex at Sophia. Sasabihin ko din kay jims ang totoo. But not until I have a word with her and I settle this thing around. She must agree with my conditions, or she’ll have my wrath.
Paadabog kong tinungo ang restau. I wear black shades, black shirt na open and first two buttons, and a solid white slacks. I hate doing this but, I walk through the restau with an angry and furious face. Diretso lang ang lakad ko, buti pumayag si hon na magpaiwan nalang, saka, bibisita din naman daw si Ruby kaya ayun, hindi na siya sumama.
Pinabantayan ko nalang siya kay Jims. I’ve given Jims some things to work on. Gusto kong hindi na kailanman magkikita sila Saphire at Eurika. Who knows what would happen? Who knows what would Eurika say? Ayokong magkagulo. I wouldn’t live with it because I know, that if ever that happens, it’ll be our end—me and Saphire.
Eurika must have to keep her mouth shut. I must guarantee it before I leave. I maust have her word.
Nung nasa may porch na ako sa entrance ng restau, agad akong pumasok ng hindi mana lng inaayos ang sarili. At nung nasa loob na ako, pansin ko agad si Eurika sa may bandang dulo, kumakaway at masayang-masayang nakita ako. I pity her, cause the feeling’s not mutual. Tell me? Matutuwa ba dapat akong makita ang taong maaring manggulo at sumira ng relasyon namin ng mahal ko? I’ll be a fool if I’ll be happy right now. I should remain partly impassive, magsasalita lang ako kung kailangan.
I headed straight to her across the aisle. My brows are up, may jaw’s clenched and I can feel my head heat up just by seeing her face. Right now, if only this is a different situation, I might have smiled back at her and kiss her on her cheek. But the situation is different, and I’m afraid it’s serious this time. The issue comes in the trio of me, my love and her. I put my hands which are forming a fist inside my slacks pocket on each side of my thighs. This way, I can restrain, this way, I might not hurt her. This way, I can be as reasonable as it is.
“Hi Perv”, she raised from her seat and supposed to kiss my cheek but then I hold out my palm in front of her, signaling her to stop. She stopped, and then her expressions changed from being happy and pleasured and amused to puzzled and partly intimidated by me. But I’m not in the same mood; I’m way too deep and beyond that. It’s good to know that she’s intimidated by me. She must.
I sat down and looked at her without removing my shades. I crossed both my arms and remained silent.
“Hi Perv, ba’t di mo sinama si Ms. Saphire?”, tanong niya. Dahil sa sinabi niyang yun, parang may dumambang bakal sa kampana ng kanang tenga ko kaya tumunog ito ng malakas. I raised one of my brows and leaned my elbows on the table and hissed at her.
