Kabanata 21 Together “Sayang, hindi ka nanalo,” sabi ko kay Cresia nang nakabalik na ito sa upuan pagkatapos ng mga laro. Nagkibit siya ng balikat. “No big deal. Wala naman akong kahit sinong gusto sa mga sumaling lalaking guests. Sayang hindi ka sumali.” Napasulyap ako kay Prince na maraming kausap sa malayo. Uminom na lamang

Kabanata 22 Mature Titig na titig si Cresia sa akin pagkadating ko. She even walked backwards just to look at my face properly. Kinunot ko lamang ang noo ko sa kanya, nagpatuloy parin sa paglalakad. “Did you put on your drugstore lip thing?” she asked. Tumango ako at nag-iwas ng tingin. Kahit simple iyon, hindi

Kabanata 23 Missed Ngayon ko lang natanto, na sa ilang taon kong pagtira rito sa Iloilo, hindi ko kailanman naramdaman ang ganitong klaseng gaan ng loob. Even with the safety, family, and shelter the Ledesmas gave me, I never felt this comfortable. Ngayon lang. “How are you?” Prince asked over the phone. Ngayon lang siya

Kabanata 24 Assume Nasa driver’s seat na ako. Nilapag ni Raoul ang mga gamit ko sa aking kandungan. I feel so small in his seat and the space in between it and the steering wheel. Nakatayo lang si Raoul sa bukana ng pintuan sa driver’s seat. The car door was opened just enough for him.

Kabanata 25 Easy Kahit anong gawin ko, hindi ko parin kayang isipin na wala lang iyon. Nakauwi na ako sa bahay at nakapagpaalam na kay Raoul na matutulog na pero tanging iyon parin ang laman ng aking isipan. I did not sleep. I cannot. Ang ginawa ko habang nakahiga sa malambot na kama, sa ilalim

Kabanata 26 Kiss “Where’s your bracelet?” he asked gently, stroking my wrist. Ngumuso ako. Totoo naman ang dahilan ko kanina kay Cresia. Muntik na nga akong ma late sa school at mahirap iyong isuot kaya hindi na ako nag-abala. But partly, sinadya ko rin iyon dahil… nagtatampo ako. “Muntik na akong ma-late kanina…” may pag-aalinlangan

Kabanata 27 Congratulations Raj promised to be spend some of his Christmas vacation days in Iloilo. Sinabi ko sa kanyang hindi na naman kailangan dahil nagkita na kami noong nakaraan. No matter how much I want to be with him, I know that he needs to be with his family on the holidays. “Huwag na!”

Kabanata 28 Love “Masayang masaya ako para sa’yo, Leil…” mangiyak-ngiyak na sambit ni Ma’am Avila. They were allowed to stay in the Ledesmas house for the weekend. Linggo ngayon at aalis na sila mamayang gabi patungong Costa Leona. “Nakapagtapos ka sa wakas. Sa dami ng pinagdaanan mo…” I smiled. “Utang ko po ang lahat ng

Kabanata 29 Present The Ledesmas were worried about me. Kahit anong gawin kong normal at kahit anong kumbinsi ko na ayos lang ako, Prince never believed me. At walang makakapagpaamin sa akin sa tunay kong nararamdaman. They wanted me to take a vacation. They gave me money for it pero sinoli ko iyon. I am

Kabanata 30 Jerk “This place is so small!” Cresia said. Pinasadahan ko ng tingin ang higit twenty thousand pesos studio condo unit na nakuha ko para sa aking sarili. I arranged my clothes in a nice and sleek closet while Lucresia Lopez was sitting on my single bed. Kaninang umaga, hinatid ako ng mga Ledesma
