PERV’S POV

 

“Really? How’s Perv doing as a boyfriend and a father naman?” curious na tanong ni grandmom kay hon. She never takes her grin all the way from office ‘til here. Gaya ng ginawa ni granddad, grandmom also welcomed us greatly. Pero nung malaman niyyang buntis si hon at ako ang ama, hindi niya na tinantanan ng tanong si hon.

We’re here sa may Quintessence Cuisine, the finest of all, except perhaps after Blue Generations Restau. Nakakagulat ng ang table nila dito kase triangle na malaki eh. Since tatlong couples kami nandito, okay talaga na sa may triangular table kami. Kanina pa din kami nagsimulang kumain. Kwentuhan dito, kwentuhan doon, pero gaya ng sinabi ko. Hindi nilubayan ng tanong ni grandmom si hon.

“He’s doing great. He has always the ability to take all things in a manner which is unfamiliar but then, it’s also exemplary”, sagot ni hon. I look at her smiling and she smiles back at me. Right now, with this smile, I want to kiss her and make love with her but how? Nandito sila mom at granddad, kaya naman, I try to hide my disappointment.

Hon grinned at me affectionately at hindi ko na talaga kinaya, mabilis ko siyang hinalikan sa pisngi niya, when I pull myself together, napalaki ko ang mga mata ko, jeez! Naandito nga pala sila granddad at grandmom. Kaya naman, dahan dahan ko silang hinarap at nagulat ako sa nakita ko. Nakangiti lang silang dalwa pati na din sila mom at dad.

Si grandmom nakapanghalumbaba habang nagsasmile sa amin. Nilingon ko si hon, nakatungo lang siya and she smiles along with her embarrassment perhaps, namblush din siya eh. Ngumiti nalang din ako kela dad, mom, granddad and grandmom.

“He’s always like that to Saphire even in the house”, pangasar ni mom sabay wink sa akin. I  don’t know, I feel like beheaded, feel like my head pops away in front of them. Jeez! I know there’s nothing wrong with this family but, ba’t ba nila ako palaging binababy? Argh! Like what it always seems, every single thing has advantages and disadvantages, no wonder na hindi rin pala magandang ikaw lang ang anak, nasa ‘yo lahat ng attention eh -__-

I glance at dad again, he and granddad is talking about something through telepathy, and they are not breaking their eye-to-eye contact. Maya-maya, ngumiti din sa akin si dad, tinakpan niya ang bibig niya sa side para hindi makita nila grandmom at mom tas nag-utter siya ng words na walang  salita, alam ko lang ang mga sinasabi niya kase binabasa kio ang lips niya. Sabi niya: Dad says you’re like him when he’s yet at college. It’s in the blood. Kiss stealer. I chuckled after reading his lips, I look at granddad again and his trying to clench his teeth trying to hide his amusement.

“Well then, it must and will always be with the blood”, sabi ko and i grinned at them all.

We finish eating our main course, mga desserts and beverages nalang ang nasa table namin. We eat those while sharing with each other a story. Unang nagshare ng lovestory sila granddad and grandmom, sunod naman sila mom and dad. Natawa ko kase, granddad and dad, pra lang silang magbest-friend. Kahit mga matatanda na, para pa din silang mga teenagers, kaya pala, si dad din, tinatry ang ganong kalseng relationship with me.
