Eunice catched the attention of Brent Paraiso when she bumped with Ricci. Tila naka-hanap na naman ng bagong pang tukso si Brent kay Ricci kaya hinila niya ang kaibigan at binigyan ng nakaka-lokong ngiti.

"I know what you're thinking, Brent." Ricci warned at humalakhak naman ang singkit na pango, "ikaw talaga napaka-defensive! Kasalanan ko bang mukhang may sparks kayo ni ate girl?" Brent nudged Ricci's elbow and started arching his eyebrows up and down.

"Ano daw pangalan pre?" Brent asked curiously. "aba malay ko." matamlay na sagot ni Ricci sa kaibigan. He didn't bother to remember the girl's name dahil hindi siya interesado dito.

"Ano ba 'yan pre ang hina! Tsk. Tsk." Brent shook his head while tapping Ricci's back. "feeling ko siya na ang icing sa ibabaw ng cupcake mo." pagbibiro ni Brent. Walang pasubalu na binigyan ni Ricci ang kanyang kaibigan ng suntok. Kumunot ang noo ni Brent at tumawa muli.

"What was that for?!" Brent hissed to Ricci.

"Gago ka."

The two of them walked around th University, they're quiet famous now dahil sa exposure na nakuha nila noong nakaraang season kaya naman hindi maiiwasan ang so-called fangirls ng mga binata, they also named the both of them as BrenCci tandem.

"Pero pre alam mo namang loyal Micci fan ako, kaya kahit sumingit sa storyline niyo si ate girl. I will always be under Michelle's side." sabi naman ni Brent. Hindi sumagot si Ricci sa sinabi ng kaibigan. Minsan napapaisip nalang si Ricci kung bakit niya nga ba naging kaibigan ang lalaking ito.


Umupo ang dalawa sa pavilion at hindi pa rin tumitigil si Brent sa kakasalita. Parang gusto na nga pasakan ng isang malaking dictionary ni Ricci ang kaibigan para tumigil ito. Ricci just sat peacefully and he kept himself busy with his phone.

"Speaking of, hi Michelle!" Brent said at hindi naiwasan ni Ricci tumingin sa harap niya.

Right infront of her is the girl who ditched her last day at hindi man lang nagawang mag-explain.

"hi Brent. Can I borrow Ricci for awhile?" Michelle asked. Of course, Brent being Brent Paraiso pumayag siya kahit alam niyang labag sa loob ni Ricci dahil may galit ito kay Michelle.

"Yes sure! Kahit hindi mo na ibalik." Brent said with full of enthusiasm. Tumayo si Brent sa kinauupuan at iniwan ang dalawa para makapag-usap.

"kapal talaga ng libag mo, Isaac." Ricci's subconscious muttered.

"Ricci. Sorry." Michelle's voice warm lingered through his ears. Parang gusto niyang i-record ang moment na ito para paulit-ulit pakinggan ang boses ng dalaga.

"Sorry if I didn't bother showing up last day. M-may inasikaso kasi ako." she reasoned out. Hindi maiwasan na hindi umigting ang panga ni Ricci dahil sa dalaga.

"If I know, kasama niya lang yung boyfriend niyang hilaw." again, Ricci's subconscious said.

"Promise, I'll make it up to you... Lahat ng sasabihin mo gagawin ko." walang prenong sabi ng dalaga kaya napa-kunot ang noo ni Ricci.

"Really? Then, if I say you should break up with your boyfriend gagawin mo ba?" Ricci's firm voice made Michelle stop for awhile.

"N-no... I-I am not yet ready. You know that, Ricci." Michelle's voice cracked.

Ricci's lips plastered into a smirk at napa-iling siya sa sinabi ni Michelle.

"You're such a coward, Michelle. I am so done with you, hindi na kita tutulungan. I guess, you don't need my help anymore." Ricci said with finality. Nanlamig naman ang sistema ni Michelle sa sinabi ni Ricci.
