Note: Sorry for the long wait!
It's been days simula noong nagpass-out ako. I already gave my thank you to Brent dahil minessage ko siya kaagad noong pag-gising ko, I just told him na hindi ako nagdinner noong gabing iyon pati nagbreakfast. He didn't ask for further details which is I'm thankful. Josh is worried as well. He's currently in Cebu dahil bibisitahin nila yung relatives nila doon. I messaged him right away saying that I'm fine and there's nothing to worry about.
"Michelle, nakaayos na ang mga gamit mo sa van." sabi ni mommy. Lumapit naman ang younger brother ko na si Mico at binigyan ako ng hug.
"I'll miss you, Ate." he said. Mico can be the sweetest sometimes. "Ate will miss you too Mico boy. You can watch our championship game." sabi ko to lighten up his mood. He grinned at me and he look at mommy — she's asking for her permission, "Can I come mommy?" he asked and mom nods.
"Yay! Finally I can see my lodi!" Mico said at humiwalay siya sa yakap ko. "Yiiieee. Idol mo talaga si Ate," sabi ko at kinurot ang chubby niyang cheeks.
"It's not you ate."
"Huh? Sino palang lodi mo sa Lady Spikers?" I asked curiously.
"Hindi din sa Lady Spikers! Sa Green Archers!" he pouted and my forehead automatically creased.
"Si Ric—" Mico was interrupted by Dad's voice. "tara na Michelle. Traffic na later." daddy said. "Bye bye, Mico!" I bid goodbye to him and kissed his cheeks.
"Babye 'my," I said and hug her so tight.
"We'll see you on your championship game, Michelle. Please take care of yourself." Mom warned before I left.
"Baby Rookie!" Ate Kianna squeals as soon as I enter the dorm. "Good evening tito!" she added at nagmano siya kay daddy. "Oh siya maiwan ko na kayo. Kianna, pakibantayan na lang si Michelle minsan ha. Pasaway talaga 'yan." dad says at ginulo pa ang buhok ko.
"Oo naman tito! Akong bahala dito kay Mich." Ate Kianna says and I laughed, "Hahahaha. Michelle, mag-iingat ka ha. Don't starve your yourself." sabi ni daddy at umalis na siya.
"Where are they?" I asked curiously, Ate Kianna grinned at me and she suddenly pull me upstairs.
"WELCOME BACK BABY ROOKIE!" They all shouted in unison. May hawak hawak silang green na cartolina at may confetti pa.
"Hoy, namiss ka namin! Pwede ka na magtraining ulit?" Bettina asked and I nodded.
"By the way, Mich! We're all invited sa birthday ni Kib." sabi ni Ate Des. "Yes tipar na naman!" sigaw naman ni Cyd at tumawa kami.
"Kelan 'yun achi?" I asked. Di naman kasi kami close ni Kuya Kib nakakahiya!
"Later." Ate Des said and my eyes widened. "Hindi ako sasama."
"Huh? Why?" Aduke asked.
"Nakakahiya." I mumbles and they all laughed at me. "ano ba baby Rookie. We're all welcome there!" sabi naman ni Ate Kianna.
