I woke up with a huge grin on my face. Goddamnit! Ilang gabi na simula nung hinatid ako ni Chance pero 'yung epekto, ganoon pa rin. I just can't erase this freaking smile on my face! Para siyang permanently etched. Ang hirap alisin. Nakakaloko. Pero ang sarap sa pakiramdam. Ugh! I was being poetic again!
"Good morning, Mon! Ang saya pa rin natin, ah? Di pa ubos ang happy pill?" Trisha asked me habang naglalakad siya sa kitchen with a bowl of scrambled egg in her arms. Dumiretso siya sa stove and poured the contents in the pan.
Naupo naman ako sa stool on the kitchen island. Ang saya ng umaga lalo na kapag isang Chance Lucas ang magtetext sa'yo.
Isang simpleng 'Good morning' lang naman ang text niya pero goodness! Gumulong ako sa kama sa sobrang kilig. Ano bang ginawa mo sa akin, Chance?! You got me bewitched!
Hindi pa ako nagrereply kay Chance. I didn't want for him to think that I'm some overly-attached and obsessed girl. I mean, obsession is a negative term, both in connotation and denotation. It's still a wonder why some people are so proud to say that they're obsessed. I mean, do you have even half an idea of what that word really means? Some people are too dumb and ignorant and pathetic for words.
I watched as Trisha murdered the egg. Well, she's not that bad of a cook naman but I would prefer if she gave the idea of being a cook up. The taste was tolerable but I deserve better food.
Anyhow, pinanood ko siyang lutuin 'yung egg at i-oven 'yung hotdog. Five minutes later, I composed my text reply. Good morning lang din naman 'yung nakalagay. Walang emoticons or whatever. Ugh! Hindi ko pa rin kasi talaga alam kung paano ko papakisamahan si Chance. He's freaking cryptic. Natatakot ako na kapag may magawa akong isang maling bagay, lumayo siya.
He wasn't there yet so I was afraid to push him away.
"Kain na," Trisha said. I snapped out of my reverie. "Can you please let go of your phone? It won't run, you know," she commented as she placed a plate in front of me.
Nilayo ko na 'yung phone ko sa akin. Ayokong mag expect kay Chance. Expectations lead to disappointments. And I hate being disappointed. It freaking hurts because you put your hopes up...
We ate and talked. Malapit na kasi 'yung data collection namin sa isang course and we were planning kung sasama kami sa Ilocos tour. Ang hassle naman kasi, e. Ang layo ng Ilocos and 3 days kami doon without internet or anything or even a decent phone coverage! Paano kami mabubuhay dun?
"Kailan ba 'yun?" I asked her.
"Next week, I think. May kasama daw tayong ibang class, e."
I didn't tell her na kasama namin 'yung class nila Lourd kasi for sure magpupumilit sumama si Trisha. Knowing her, she'll bug the hell out of me para lang sumama kami!
Why did I know? Nakwento kasi sa akin ni Lourd. That guy's so freaking talkative. Hindi siya nawawalan ng sasabihin, I swear! Ang dami niyang kwento, ang dami niyang alam. Bakit kaya siya nagugustuhan ng mga babae? Daig niya pa ako sa kaingayan niya, e.
Trisha pointed at my phone. "It's ringing, oh. Won't you answer it ba?"
I looked at the phone and my mouth went hanging wide open.
Oh, my goodness!
Okay, puso, kalma ka lang! It's just a freaking phone call! Bakit ka ba nagpapanic?!
