Chapter 7: The Punishment (Part 1)

I hate mornings. I hate waking up early. Which, I think almost all teenagers share the same feelings with me. Pero mukhang ito na ang pinakakumportableng pag-gising na ginawa ko. I definitely love the warm and sweet breath that falls at the back of my neck, smelling like mint and berries. And the arm that's wrapped tightly and protectively around my waist keeps me at the center of the soft black velvet bed of the dark prince--- WHAT??? Breath on my neck? Arms? I turned around and--- HOLY MOTHER OF CHEESECAKE!

Bago pa ako nakapag-isip ng logical reasonings at rumehistro sa utak ko ang flashback and problem solving techniques, lumanding na ang kamao ko sa gwapong mukha ni Van.

"MOTHER-FATHER! WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME?!!" Galit na sigaw ko sa mukha niya at umupo sa kama.

"What the f*ck, bitch! Can't you just do 'good mornings'?" Inis na sagot niya habang hawak-hawak ang pisngi. I checked myself... okay. I'm still on my black dress. And I'm just over-reacting. Note! Wag bibiruin ang sarili pag bagong gising 'cause I definitely lose all the humor. Pareho kaming napalingon sa pagbukas ng pinto. Makki is still on his dream state so definitely, it's not him. And I blushed like hell (See? Blushing like hell? That's extreme!) when I saw Ethan on the door way--- pale as a chalk with wide, shocked eyes. And then... anger? And he quickly shifted on his blank face.

"Not that I have to explain something but it's not what you think," wika ko. Tsk! Bakit ba pakiramdam ko ay may ginawa akong masama? Bukod sa I trespassed on his room to get my phone--- oh, may ginawa nga yata akong masama.

"She sneaked in here last night by climbing the tree at naabutan siya ng curfew. Get her! She's a trespasser," inis pa rin na sabi ni Van.

"Your fault, Devil! Kung hindi mo kinuha ang phone ko---!" Uh, ayoko nang ulit-ulitin sa taong makitid ang utak na kasalanan niya ito. Er!

"Shhhh! Sleeping person here," Makki murmured with eyes still closed. Pareho namin siyang sinamaan ng tingin. Buhay pa pala siya. I forgot to sleep-walk last night to kill him. Kinuha ni Ethan ang magkahiwalay kong sapatos sa carpeted floor at pumunta sa kamang kinaroroonan namin. His face is still blank nang hawakan niya ako sa waist at halos buhatin paalis ng kama.
