Pagpasok na pagpasok ko sa school ay agad akong pinasukan ng kaba sa damdamin. First period na klase ko kasi si Professor Willa, at kinakabahan ako na magpakita sa kanya lalo na sa kung ano man yung nangyari nung Sabado. Kapag kaya nag explain ako sa kanya ay maiintindihan naman niya ako?

Habang naglalakad ako papasok sa room si Professor Willa na walang kasabay dahil hindi kami nagsabay sabay na pumasok nina Jane, nakarinig naman ako ng mga bulung bulungan sa paligid. What's worse is that they are talking about Dreamcatchers at hindi ko makalimutan kung ano yung nangyari kagabi. Kung paano nila ako napainom ng marami kasama nila. Kahit sweet little innocent Hana was drinking, kaya naman ay napasubo na rin ako.

Kagabi kasi, sabi nila ay ang hindi malalasing ang siyang magbabayad kaya tinodo ko talaga yung inom ko dahil ayaw ko naman na gastusin yung pera ko sa bagay na ganito lang. I can spend my money on educational purposes din. So, long story short, ang nangyari ay nalasing din ako at nag iyakan kaming anim sa private booth na nirent namin. But that shall remain buried deep inside our brains.

"Wow, if it isn't Chienne Kim, I don't know who? Sino ka naman sa tingin mo para paghintayin kami nina Professor Willa nung Saturday?" sabi ng boses na pinakakinaririndihan ko. Of course, Michael Chang. Mabuti sana kung high school palang kami at ganyan siya umakto, maiintindihan ko pa, e. Kaso we are in our last year of college, at asal high school bully pa din naman siya.

At hindi pa siya nakuntento. Nagsama pa siya ng alipores niya ngayon. Earl yata yung pangalan? Ewan ko, at wala ma rin akong pakialam.

"If it's not me, bulag ka na, Chang. So bugger off, dahil magkaklase na ako," sabi ko sa kanya, and he chuckled.

"I'm really sorry, but kayong mga ordinary students ay walang pasok sa klase niya ngayon. Kaming mga pili lang na magagaling ang pwedeng makapasok ngayon because we will be able to discuss about our case properly in that way. By the way, this is Earl, yung mas deserving sa spot na dapat sayo, kaya siya ang natanggap," sabi ni Chang, and I gaped at him.

"Hindi ako nakikipag away, Michael Chang, hindi ko lang talaga alam. And Earl, congratulations. Aalis na ako," sabi ko at sabay na tumalikod, kaso nga lang ay nakasalubong naman namin si Professor Willa so nagbow kami sa kanyang tatlo and she nodded.

"Oh, Chienne Kim. Nag explain sa akin yung kapatid mo kaninang umagang umaga. You were in Osaka last Saturday at may inaasikaso sa business ng family mo?" sabi ni Professor Willa, and nanlaki ang mga mata ko,

"Yes, ma'am. And Chisae went here?" I asked, placing my hand on my lips to cover my shocked face.

"Yes. I didn't know Chisae Kim of Dreamcatchers was your little sister. But I must say, I'm impressed about your priorities. Others before yourself. I like that in a person. So, don't worry, all will be well and you're still in my team. But you should check in to me first before something like that happens again or I will be forced to take you out of the team even if you are one of my greatest students," said Professor, and I grinned then bowed at her multiple times as I gave her my thanks.

I heard Michael Chang and Earl scoff, at nilagpasan na ako papasok sa room ni Professor Willa. I happily went inside as well, dahil hindi ako makapaniwala na kahit na hindi ako nakaratingnung Sabado ay nakuha ko pa din yu opportunity na makatrabaho si Professor Willa.

Pagkapasok na pagkapasok namin ay napansin ko na aapat lang kami nina Earl, Michael, yung babae na hindi namin kasabay sa class but I heard na magaling rin, at ako. Agad naman na ipinatong ni Professor Willa yung mga books na dala niya sa desk niya at naglakad papunta sa amin.

"Because you four are my chosen, you should pay more attention to class and do more reading exercises than the others. You should act like real lawyers, study like a real lawyer, and speak to others like a real lawyer because as we go to the first hearing session, I believe that acting professionally is very necessary even if you four are still students. Let's start with this one," sabi ni Professor, at kinuha naman niya yung remote niya and then pointed it at the projector.




"Hindi ako makapaniwala! Kung totoo ngang may paboritong estudyante si  Professor Willa, naniniwala na ako na ikaw yun! But girl, you deserve it, kaso nga lang ay masosobrahan ka nanaman sa pagod nyan, lagi ka na nga lang nag aaral, kailangan mo pang mas advanced na reading ngayon," sabi ni Sydney, and I chuckled at what she said.

Nasa cafeteria naman kasi kami ngayon at kumakain na ng lunch. Sina Mariel at Jane, magkasama daw sila ngayon sa cafe at hindi makakasama sa aming dalawa. Ewan ko lang kung bakit, pero hinayaan na lang namin sila ni Sydney.

"It's really nothing. Walang favouritism si Professor Willa. Isa pa, I can't believe that a lot of people are looking at me right now as if they are reporters. I can't focus-"

Hindi ko pa naman natatapos yung sinasabi ko ay may biglang dumating sa table namin na may hawak na poster. I looked at the poster at nakita na poster yon ng Dreamcatchers at may apat na pirma na.

He was a guy, at probably ay second year na niya dito. Pero ang hindi ko lang magets ay kung bakit kailangan na sa akin pa siya magpunta e pwede namang kay Chisae nalang. Mula kanina pa may mga nakikisipsip sa akin para lang makalapit kay Chichi, nararamdaman ko naman na yun yung gusto nila, e.

"What  is it?" I asked, and the guy smiled softly at me and then shoved the poster on my hands making me look at him as if he was kidding me.

"Please let Chisae sign this, pati na rin po kiss niya, thank you!" sabi nung lalaki at iniwan sa akin yung poster niya but sumigaw ako.

"Hindi ako tulay, ha? May sarili akong buhay at hindi yun nagrerevolve kay Chisae kaya salamat sa pagsupport sa kanya but I have to focus on my life too at mag aral ng mabuti. Walang extra time na pwede kong ilaan para maibigay to sa kanya," sabi ko dun sa lalaki and he groaned, tapos ay binawi yung poster niya.

"Aish, ang damot mo, noona. Isang poster lang naman," sabi niya, and I raised a brow at him.

"We live so many kilometers away from each other. I don't do this for fun," sabi ko, at tumango naman siya at umalis na.

God, I can't believe that it has been exposed. Paano na kaya ako mananahimik sa buhay niyan kung lahat na sila makikisipsip sa akin para lang makapunta sa point na maging friends din sila ni Chisae? This is so frustrating.

Bigla ko naman na naalala si Joon, para ibalita sa kanya yung kung anong nangyari kaninang umaga. Kahit na naansin ko na hindi siya online ngayon, sinabi ko pa din dahil kapag naman nagchat ako kahit na hindi siya online ay bigla naman siyang nag oonline.

ayen
it was cowardly of
me.

ayen
have some time?
i miss you.

ayen
are you there?

I sighed, realizing that he won't be replying soon. Maybe because he was busy doing something else.

But why am I expecting something? Why do I expect him to come and tell me to come back and that he wanted to talk to me for hours? Damn, hindi naman ako dapat nagkakaganito.

"Wow, hindi mo pa gusto si Joon, nyan, ha?" Sabi bigla ni Sydney, causing me to flinch.

"No, Syd. Hindi ko siya gusto sa ganung paraan. Kaibigan ko lang talaga siya. He just makes me happy, that's all. He relieves my stress from school. He's literally just like my happy pill-"

"Bitch! You're crushing on him!" Said Sydney, at tinakpan ko naman yung bibig niya.

"Ano ka ba? Ang ingay mo ha? Pero hindi ko nga siya gusto, e." Sabi ko, and she shrugged.

Hindi naman kasi talaga.
