It's weird how I feel like my heart finally calmed down and I feel like I'm now safe from the cruel world. I feel comfort like the kind of comfort Ivan gives me when he's around. What is happening?
It's the Izeiah day and the Headmaster told me that the family should be not too busy. So I asked if I could talk to them about something and the Headmaster didn't even blink when he agreed. I'm not sure why he easily allowed me to meet them but oh well. Lucky I guess?
Kumatok na ako at pinagbuksan naman ako ng babaeng naubusan ata ng tela ng damit dahil sa wala naman kwenta ang mga parte na meron takip. Tinaasan niya ako ng kilay. Umiling nalang ako at tinanggal ang glasses ko and ran my fingers through my hair after I took off my ponytail.
Itinapon ko ang glasses sa basurahan at ngumiti sa babaeng nasa harapan ko ngayon. Mukha naman siyang nagulat.
"Facy?" Lumapit sakanya si Alexis at hinapit ito sa beywang. What the actual what? If you don't remember Facy, Facy Williams, ate Hina's step sister.
"Well, hello there, Ms. Swift." They sure are smart. They got it right even though my face is bare. Dahil sa sinabi niya napatingin naman saakin itong Facy na ito at sinuri ako. I winked at her.
"Now you certainly look like a copy of my Mother" sabi ni Alexis.
"Alexis? Papasukin mo na ang bisita." Narinig kong sabi ng babae. Pumasok na kami at pakiramdam ko parang hindi nagbago ang bahay na ito. I don't know. Hindi talaga ng bago sa paningin ko eh.
"What name do you prefer us to call you?" Tanong ni Alexis.
"I think she would prefer her real name, which is Izeiah" Sabi ni Elexis na bumababa ng napakalaking hagdanan.
"Is it true? Your name is Izeiah?" I awkwardly nod. Well, this is awkward. They seemed like something they've hoped for, for a long time have finally come true.
"Can I hug you, sweetheart?" Nanginginig na sabi ng Mama nila. Nagulat naman ako dahil I was not expecting this kind of welcome, people. They are overdoing it.
I was about to refuse when the Mom allowed herself to come near me and take me in her arms. Well, this is weird.
"Mama, nawe-weirduhan na siya dahil sa inaakto mo, oh." Sabi ni Alexis na nakapagbitaw sakanya saakin. Nakahinga naman ako ng maluwag.
"So....." pagsisimula ko habang iniiwasan ang mga mata ng Mama nila. She's strange but oddly comforting.
"You can call us Kuya and Tita and Tito is good enough for them." Itinuro ni Elexis ang parents nila.
"Right, Tita and Tito, I'm here to ask for cookies--- I mean the lunacies, I'm here to ask something regarding to the lunacies." Tumango naman sila.
"Uhmm, can we atleast sit? It might take a while." I said and pointed at the sofas. Nagmadali naman si Tita na pauupuin ako at meron pang ibinilin sa maid.
"What about our lunacies?" Tanong ni Alexis. I glanced at Facy who in return raised her eyebrows.
"It would be reassuring if that lady hurry along." Itinuro ko si Facy. Sabay sabay naman silang tumingin sakanya at mukhang nahiya si Facy.
