Chapter 6 - My Dee

Magsimula sa umpisa

"Well.... actually, nung tinext kita nandito na ako." sabe niya.

"Tara, upo muna tayo. Ah, kids? Mamaya nalang tayo maglaro ha? Nandito na kasi ang hinihintay ko e." nakangiti niyang sabe dun sa mga bata. Umupo na din kami sa may bench.

"Kuya, girlfriend niyo po ba si ate?" tanung nung batang babae.

"Oo. Ganda niya noh?" I blushed. Kahit ba laruan ko lang si Kevin e di parin naman masamang kiligin.

Atsaka iba si Kevin sa mga dati kong flings.

"Opo!" sabay sabay nilang sabe.

I smiled.

"Thank you." sabe ko.

"O sige na kids, later nalang ha? " sabe ni Kevin at tumango naman yung mga bata at nagpaalam na samin.

"So.... may gusto ka bang puntahan?" tanong niya sakin. I shook my head.

"Dito nalang. Mas gusto ko dito e. Mas gusto ko panuorin yung mga bata habang naglalaro." sabe ko habang nakatingin sa mga bata.

"Candy, I know our relationship is just for fun for you. But.... I'm.... I'm actually starting to like you.... for real." nagulat naman ako sa sinabe niya.

"What? Are you serious, Kevin?" tanong ko sa kanya. He nodded.

"I know it happened so fast. But... its not that hard to fall for you. You're charming, cute, fun to be with, humble, and kind. I just can't stop myself from falling for you." nakatingin lang ako sa mga mata niya. He's sincere, I know it. Pero...

"Sorry, Kevin. I..... I can't return the love you have for me. I.... Its just that...." I bit my lower lip.

"I understand. I already know. You still love him don't you?" tanong niya. I shrugged.

"I don't know." simple kong sagot.

He sighed. "No worries. I'm just glad I have finally got the courage to tell you how I feel." I can see sadness in his eyes.

"Sorry, Kevin." mahina kong sabe. He smiled at me. He cupped my face.

"I said, its okay. Don't worry. I'm fine. " and he kissed my forehead. And then he hugged me, I hugged him back.

Ang bait niya talaga. Actually, we've been dating for 3 weeks already. Di lang alam nung dalawa. He knows my story. And I know his.

Actually, we're schoolmates since highschool. Di ko lang siya napapansin noon. Kasi nga, na kay Lucas ang atensyon ko noon.

Inamin niya sakin na may crush daw siya sakin nung highschool kami. But then, he didn't got the courage to tell me.

Nakalipas ang ilang taon e nakahanap siya ng babaeng mamahalin niya, but then, niloko lang din pala siya.

Kaya ayun, nung magkita kami sa isang coffee shop, dun na kami nagkausap.

He told me what happened. And I actually asked him to be my boyfriend. A fling only. He knows that. I explained it to him clearly.

Pumayag naman siya. Para bang.... pampalipas oras lang namin ang isa't isa hanggang sa makalimutan niya ang ex niya. Well.... not just his ex.... mine too.

We pulled away. He smiled, I smiled back. "So.... what happens next?" tanong niya. I shrugged.

"Well.... maybe we could still be friends and look for our true lovers?" sabe niya. Natawa naman ako dun. For a guy who believes in true love, thats very... rare.

"Maybe, we should." nakangiti kong sabe. Inabot niya ang kamay niya sakin.

"friends?
