"Grabe ang kaba ko kanina. Pakiramdam ko maiihi ako sa salawal, bes! Bakit naman kasi sumakay ka sa elevator at hinila mo pa ako!" Rayne ranted habang papalabas kami ng building.

"What's wrong with riding an elevator?"

"Wala! Walang masamang sumakay ng elevator pero masamang sumakay ng elevator kasama si sir!"

"Huh?"

"Alam mo ba, kapag siya ang sakay ng elevator, bawal sumabay ang kahit na sinong empleyado sa kanya. Buti hindi tayo kinain ng buhay non! Pero nagtataka rin ako kung bakit hindi tayo pinagalitan nang makapasok tayo sa elevator eh. Omg! Hindi kaya, bukas ang hatol sa atin? Jusko. Huwag naman sana."

"Ganoon ba?"

"Oo! Ganon na ganon, bes!"

"Kakausapin ko na lang si boss sa Lunes para humingi ng tawad. Sasabihin kong hindi ko naman alam at hinila pa kita."

"Wish you luck sa gagawin mo, Avi." Tila ba'y nag-aalala nyang sabi.

Yeah, wish me luck. Baka sungitan na naman ako ng magaling na Gray na 'yon.

We reached our house and did our routines.

"Mommy!" Bungad sa akin ng prinsesa ko over the phone.

"Hello, princess. Nakapag-ayos na ba kayo?"

"Yes, mommy. We finished our homeworks na rin po. Alam mo po ba? Kuya said sorry to my friend na inaway nya kanina that's why I gave him a very good kiss on his cheeks po."

I smiled. I noticed that my son is a proud boy pero when it comes to his sister, he'll do anything, even forgetting his pride for her. He really cherishes his sister that much. I'm thankful that my kids grew up that way kahit na hindi ko maibigay sa kanila ang lahat at alam naming pare pareho na may kulang.

"Mommy, I miss your face." Ungot ni Leigh.

"You'll see mommy's face soon through the screen, baby. I'll buy a tablet for the both of you and tito bossing will give it to you when he gets there."

"Really, mommy?!" I heard the excitement in her voice.

"Yes. Really, baby." Narinig ko pa ang pag-yehey niya at parang tumatalon talon pa siya sa kama. I laughed dahil hindi ko na sya makausap ng matino dahil doon.

"Mom? Why does Leigh keep on shouting yehey and jumping on the bed?" Narinig ko pang nagreklamo ang anak kong babae kung bakit daw kinuha ng kuya nya ang phone.

"I'll buy you a tablet so we could do facetime. Para makita ko ang mga faces ng mga anak kong miss na miss ko na."

"Is it expensive, mom?"

"Don't worry. It's not, baby."

"Ok po, mom." He replied.

"Are you doing fine there? Are you eating regularly? Sleeping on time?" Maya maya pa ay tanong niya.

"Yes, daddy. I know that you'll get mad if I don't."

"Mom!"

"Opo nga po, kuya. Don't you miss mommy's face?" Lambing ko.

"I do! Pero baka po kasi you'll sacrifice something in exchange for the tablet, mom."

"Don't worry, your Tita Rayne will lend me some tomorrow and I promise that I'll buy a cheap one."

"Ok, mom. Sinabi mo po 'yan ha!"

"Yes, kuya. It's late na pala. You should sleep early kasi masama ang magpuyat."
