"Hi. Uhm... I'm sorry I was such a dick."
"Ms. Alonzo, will you forgive me?"
What was that? A wedding proposal? Tzk.
"Uhm... Im sorry, I was wrong----damn!"
Konting-konti na lang, I'm gonna lose it! I've been stupidly staring at this stupid mirror, rehearsing my stupid lines stupidly! This is fuckin stupid!
There's no way Im going to apologize to her. She won't even talk to me!
I will not stoop down just to woo her.
"I am King Alejandro dela Rosa Montereal, and i will not kneel down to her! Do you understand, mirror?"
Im even talking to a mirror now. Great! Now Im crazy!
What is she doing to me?
She haven't talk to me all day. Just "Yes sir." and "Ok sir." and "No sir." and just all casual.
Why am I even expecting something from her now? I mean, ganoon naman lagi ang scenario dati. I even snapped at her when she tried to touch me just in the forehead.
It was so normal before... Pero mula noong nakita ko siyang takot na takot, I wanted to protect her from that day onwards. And since I went knocking at her door, she let me in and I felt like...she let me inside her little world. I never thought that I would ever fall in love again.
Oh boy... This is really a serious case.
Malapit na ang time-out.
Nope. Im not going to talk to her.
Ilang oras ang nakalipas, I decided to make her see me. Pinindot ko ang intercom.
Walang sumagot. I waited for the coffee instead. 15 mins na ang nakalipas pero wala pa ring pumapasok na secretary.
Pinindot ko ulit ang intercom.
"Ms. Alonzo, where's my coffee?"
Ilang minuto ulit ang lumipas pero walang kape na dumating. Hinarap ko ulit ang intercom.
"Ms. Alonzo, are you there?"
Wala pa rin talaga.
Tumayo ako at pumunta sa office niya.
Nakita kong bakante na 'yon at maayos na nakahilera ang mga folders sa table niya. Wala rin ang bag niya.
Tzk. She's gone?
Dali-dali akong bumalik sa office ko para kunin ang mga gamit ko pauwi.
"Shit! This is not happening."
Maaga akong umuwi dahil masakit ang ulo ko at saka talagang inagahan ko para maliwanag pa ang dadaanan ko pauwi. Ayoko namang maulit ang nangyari noon---sa lalaking lasing, not the hero.
Nakainom na ako ng gamot at medyo humupa na ang sakit. Basta na lang ako nagtime-out, gustung-gusto na ng katawan ko ang mahiga sa kama.
Kasalukuyan akong nasa kusina at nagtitimpla ng gatas, pampasarap ng tulog. Walang anu-ano ay...
