There is a guy standing behind me. He is tall, wearing a mask and a black tux. Natatakpan iyong mukha niya dahil sa laki ng maskara. Iyong mata at lips lang niya ang nakikita. Iyong kamay niya nakalahad sa akin as if he is asking me to dance. I did not take his hand. " Sorry." I went back to my phone.
But he is persistent. He held my right hand and gently pulled me out of the table.
Magwawala pa sana ako kaya lang our eyes met and I saw that he was pleading kaya sumunod na lang ako sa kanya. He led me to the dance floor and swayed with the slow dance.
At first, we're both quiet. Pero di ako matahamik. I have to know this guy.
"Are you from this school?"
"What's your name?"
Instead of answering, he gently pulled me closer.
Ang bango niya. Dahil matangkad siya ng konti sa kin, iyong chin ko ka-level ng kanyang shoulder.
"Why are you not talking? Are you mute?"
We're still dancing when he suddenly stop and look at me. I started to feel nervous. Sino ba siya talaga? Baka mamaya masamang tao ito at gusto pala akong kidnappin. I thought we're going back to the table pero nilapit niya ang mukha niya sa may tainga ko.
"Sorry... but I'm not sorry for this..." Halos pabulong na sabi niya. His voice seems familiar. I know that voice pero dahil sa sobrang hina at sa lakas pa ng music ay di ko ma-recall kung saan ko iyon narinig. Bago pa ako makapagtanong I got the biggest surprise of my life!
He kissed me on the lips. He cupped my face so that I can't move.
I was too shocked. I felt I lost my senses that moment when I felt his lips brushed mine. It was too fast. Next thing I knew, he was gone.
I was left standing in the dance floor. I should have freak out. I should have shouted.
I heard his voice and he said that he was mute!
Who is he to make a fool out of me?
Who is he to stole my first kiss?
How dare he!
Tagal kong pinangarap ang first kiss ko na magiging special. Pero ninakaw lang niya! Kailangang makilala ko siya.
