“Heyyy! Kamusta Kuya Honey? Oo, nga tagal na natin hindi nagkita “ sabay tawa….hahaha
We were joking at each other bilang we don’t want other people to suspect that it was our first time to see each other in person. But although we were doing that, I was still shy to look at him — nevertheless, we walked together towards the exit as he pushes his baggage cart. I was looking at the floor as we walked and I can see him doing that as well.
We were obviously feeling awkward about the whole thing but the smile on our faces just can’t be denied. I can feel that he is happy as I was. We were both glowing and blushing all at the same time.
Suddenly it hit me —- I am not the same person I used to be! I broke my rules… my boundaries! And craziest part is, I’m going with this man I just met. I must be insane doing this! Para akong nagpanic bigla!
“Paloma, wui, Paloma! San tayo? “ … Bigla naman akong natauhan, “Ahhhh sige straight ahead lang…. “
As we walk, my mind was like teleported into this warp zone of thoughts. Dami kong naiisip, Ano ba ito! I have to stay focus. I kept telling myself, this is what I want and I am going all out for this! NO REGRETS! So just as I said that, I was like teleported back into reality. I looked at Kuya Honey and smiled.
“We’re here! Just put your bags at the back po”.
After he put his bags, we both hopped in the car. I started the engine and opened my phone to start navigating to the place where he booked us. Just before I hit the gas, he said to me — “Hon, “. Without saying any word, I looked back at him. He was staring at me — alam mo yung parang hindi siya makapaniwala. Ganon yung mukha niya.
After few seconds of dead air, he said, “Can I have a kiss? “ . “Ha? Wow ha, ang kulet mo din… hahaha” that made me blush bigtime! I don’t know if I would give in or not. But what the hell right? Kwarenta nako tapos pavirgin pa.
“Ayaw mo ba? Ok lang naman kung hindi, I respect you.” after he said that, I rushed to kiss him by his lips at yun, parang biglang tumigil ang mundo….Ako na si Dong Shan Cai at siya na si Dao Ming Si. Parang teleserye! Alam mo yun, yung parang may something pa na nagspasparkle habang nagkikiss ang mga bida! Kulang na lang ng background music. Hayyyyyyyy….. kilig!
It was a quick but a passionate kiss. —- “Ok I’ll drive na ha…” sabay *wink kay Kuya Honey. His face was like beaming. Ang saya ni Kuya Honey. And even if hindi kami nag uusap masayado while on the road, the smile on his face never fades.
Finally we arrived at the hotel. I parked the car as he unload the bags, “Hon, where are your bags?”. “Ha? Ah eh, I really haven’t packed my stuff, but my assistant packed some of my clothes from my dorm. I think she put it there at the back. Let’s just get it later. Yung gamit mo nalang muna.” “Ok”.
As we enter the hotel, I still feel uneasy. Siguro hindi lang talaga ako sanay sumama sa taong ngayon ko palang nakita talaga. Iba pa rin pala kapag nagkasama kayo ng matagal. Kase kami ni Kuya Honey, lagi man kaming magkasama pero sa phone lang. Alam mo yun iba talaga.
We got into the elevator….14, 15…. 24 — *Ding! The elevator door opened. We got off and looked for our room. Ayun na! Nakita na rin namin. Goossshhh, ano ba ito? I was feeling nervous as we walked inside the room.
The room he got was big. He put down his bags at the corner of the bed and joined me as I inspect the room. I opened the curtain to see the view outside. It was a beautiful sight! The city skyline and cars passing-by were like beautiful display of lights. Ang ganda nya tingnan! And just as I was enjoying the view, he held my hand and kissed it. He looked at me and said, ” Can I have another kiss? ” I looked back at him and said, “Oi ha! Nakakarami kana! “, and then he laughed so loud! So natawa na rin ako at ayun tawanan nalang kami ng tawanan. Mayamaya pa, nagyaya si Kuya Honey na magjollibee daw kami bilang matagal na siyang di nakakain non. Syempre pa, game ako! As we went out, Kuya Honey got my other hand and he was holding it until we reached the nearest Jollibee. Sarap naman ng feeling! Ang saya saya lang. I feel that I have finally adjusted. Wala na yung awkwardness. Para akong bata na binigyan ng lollipop sa saya! Ang nakakatuwa pa, yung inorder nya na food for me was exactly my favorite meal in Jollibee! DOUBLE BURGER STEAK! Woahhhhh parang jollibee commercial lang ahhh. Omgee, I love it.
