Richard and Ryan were busy talking about a property they were planning to purchase when Maya and Ivy came over.
“Akala ko ba Sweetheart pumunta tayo dito para magenjoy. Hinahanap ka na ng mga bata dun sa dagat o. Sarap sarap kayang magswimming.”
The entire Lim household together with Ryan, Ivy and their son Raymond are having a weekend outing in Palawan.
“Sige na susunod na lang kami ni Ryan.”
“Ay brod, parang gusto ko na ring magswimming. Tara na dun na tayo.”
“Ah sige brod. Mauna na kayo. May kukunin lang ako sa kwarto. Sweetheart samahan mo ako.”
Maya accompanied Richard to their room.
“Anong kukunin mo Sweetheart?”
“This. Palagay ako sa likod Sweetheart.”
Naku Mr. Lim napaka vain mo. Akin na nga.”
Ricky asked Maya to put sunscreen all over his body.
“Ayan you are completely covered na.”
“Your turn naman Sweetheart. Talikod ka na.”
“Ay naku Sweetheart naglagay na ako kanina. Halika na.”
“You are scared aren’t you?”
“Scared that you won’t be able to resist my soft fingers caressing your back…”
“Aynaku Mr. Lim nagiging naughty ka na naman. Let’s go na nga.”
“Ayan ka naman Sweetheart. Ikaw ang naughty not me. There’s nothing naughty with applying lotion on your back.”
Maya threw him a sharp stare.
“You are polluting my mind Sweetheart.”
“Ricky isa pa!”
“Biro lang Sweetheart. Eto naman pikon agad. Okay ako na. Ako na yun may 101 ideas of naughtiness. You want us to try them.”
She playfully slapped Ricky’s arm.
“Puro ka talaga kalokohan. Tara na.”
The families spent their time swimming, playing beach volleyball, building sand castles
The kids enjoyed especially Abby, Sky and Sunshine who were running around with Sabel, Leah and Doris running after them.
Luke, Raymond and Joma spent their time on the jetski while Nikki was tagging along with her mom and Tita Ivy enjoying their girl talk and bonding.
Evening came and Ricky found Maya at the terrace with Ivy.
“Ang gwapo nya no?”
“Sobra Maya. Sobrang kisig, sobrang bango at nakakapanghina.”
“Siya na ang pinakagwapong nilalang sa buong mundo.”
“Oo nga eh. Ang swerte swerte natin, nakita natin siya.”
“Kelan kaya siya uuwi? Dapat mapicturan natin siya.
“Baka bukas. Halika puntahan natin.”
Ricky’s ears were alerted. He heard everything so he joined in.
“Sinong pupuntahan nyo?”
“Ah eh Sweetheart nandyan ka na pala. Asan si Ryan?”
“Magpapahinga na ata.”
“Naku Ricky ang aga pa para magpahinga. Tawagin ko na muna si Ryan. Pwede naman kayong mag tig-isang bottle of beer.” Ivy suggested.
“Oo nga Sweetheart. Doon na muna kayo sa cottage. Masarap magkwentuhan dun.”
“No. Im already tired, let’s go to bed na Sweetheart.”
“Ricky hindi pa ako inaantok. Sige na mauna ka na. Nagkukuwetuhan pa kami.”
“Sweetheart you know I can’t sleep without you.”
“Naku sige na Maya. Bukas na lang natin ituloy yun kwentuhan at stalking natin. Parang may gagawin pa kayo ni Ricky eh.”
Ivy teased her.
“Ah eh, wala naman kaming gagawin.”
Maya was still shy when being teased with things they do as couple.
“Sige na. Goodnight Ricky.”
In their bedroom, asar si Maya. She and Ivy were supposed to go somewhere that night.
They were excited kaso nangungulit si Ricky.
“Tara na Sweetheart let’s sleep na.”
With brows furrowed Maya faced her husband.
“Alam mo nakakaasar ka. Nagkukwentuhan pa kami ni Ivy ang kulit mo.”
“Kasi nga Sweetheart matutulog na tayo.”
“Eh hindi ka naman si Sky na kailangan pang patulugin.”
Maya was really pissed at the thought that she and Ivy might not be able to do what they were supposed to do.
Ricky was curious as to why his wife and Ryan’s wife were acting strange.
Who could they be referring too.
He was annoyed but pretended that all is well.
They slept that night not even facing each other.
The following morning, Ricky woke up and Maya was no longer beside him.
It was just 6 in the morning but his wife had already left their bed.
He immediately put on his glasses and went out to search for his wife.
He couldn’t find Maya anywhere.
He went to the kids room and found them still sleeping soundly.
He saw Manang Fe who was having coffee.
“Manang nakita nyo po si Maya?”
“Kanina Ricardo. Nakita ko siyang kasama ni Ivy. May pupuntahan ata sila.”
“Saan daw Manang?”
‘Hindi ko alam eh. Baka namasyal sa beach. Alam mo na. Masayang maglakad lakad kapag maaga pa. Antayin mo na lang. Hayaan mo na lang muna at nageenjoy yun asawa mo na kasama si Ivy.”
“Ah okay lang naman po yun Manang. Nagalala lang ako kasi wala siya. Hindi ko alam na may kasama naman pala siya.”
It was already 7 in the morning when Maya and Ivy arrived with wide smiles on their faces.
Ricky and Ryan were already frowning.
Maya was the first one to greet them.
“Good morning sweetheart! Good morning Ryan! Eto may dala kaming mga local kakanin. Mainit pa. Masarap na breakfast. Gising na ba yun mga bata?”
“Hindi ko alam. Ryan, Ivy balik na muna ako sa kwarto.”
Ricky answered her in a pissed off manner then stood up to proceed to their room.
“Anong nangyari dun? Bakit nagsusungit?”
Maya asked Ryan.
“Mabuti pa kausapin mo na lang Maya. Mukhang mainit yun ulo eh.”
Maya followed her husband.
Ryan and Ivy went to the bigger cottage where breakfast was being prepared by Manang Fe and Sabel.
Ricky was lying in bed when Maya went in.
He had a pillow covering his eyes.
“Sweetheart kong masungit….”
Hindi nya pinansin si Maya.
She went near him and tried to remove the pillow but Ricky held on to it.
“Uy sweetheart bakit ang suplado mo na naman? Akala ko pa naman tapos na yung sumpong mo kagabi. Kaaga aga ang sungit pa rin!”
He just ignored her.
“Uy Ricky! Bangon na dyan. Breakfast na tayo. Uy!”
“Nothing. I’m just tired. Mauna na kayo.”
“Tired? Kakagising mo lang. Eh wala ka namang ginawa atsaka nagbabakasyon tayo di ba? Bakit ka naman tired, aber?”
He just smirked, shook his head then covered his face again.
“Ay ang arte mo sweetheart, kung ayaw mo di wag!”
Then she bolted out of their room.
Sa loob loob ni Ricky… “Aba talagang iniwan ako!”
“O Maya, asan na si Richard? Natulog uli?”
Nakasimangot si Maya.
“Ewan ko dun. Andropause!”
Humagalpak ng tawa si Ryan. Ivy sniggered and Ricky who actually followed Maya heard her.
Mas tiger mode na siya.
Nagulat si Maya. Patay siya kay Ricky.
“Wala! Sabi ko ang cute mo, ang bango mo, ang bait bait mo at hindi ka sinusumpong. Kain na sweetheart!” She said in her saccharine voice.
Ricky just looked at her. Asar siya na inaasar siya ni Maya.
But Maya just downplayed it. Patay malisya lang. She is sure na di naman siya matitiis ni sweetheart nya.
Linapitan pa nya si Ricky na kasalukuyang nakaupo na to have breakfast, she back-hugged him and kissed his cheek from behind.
Nahiya si Ricky.
“Sweetheart we’re in front of Ivy and Ryan.”
“Sus nahiya ka pa eh kung ikaw nga ang gumagawa, okay lang kahit sa harap pa ng maraming tao. Ang cute mo talaga!”
Then she tickled his tummy. She knows that he is very ticklish in that area.
Napatawa nya si Ricky.
“Yehey tumawa na siya. Bati na tayo sweetheart!” Then she hugged him again sabay sabi..
“Tara na Ivy, puntahan na natin kasi uuwi na sila ngayon. Hindi pa tayo nakakapagpapicture.”
Then without waiting for their husbands approval or objection , the two ladies hurriedly left. They even brought Nikki with them.
Ryan and Ricky were left dumbfounded.
“Where will they go?” Ricky said in his higher-than-usual voice.
“Hayaan mo na brod. Minsan lang naman magbonding yun dalawa. Atsaka kasama naman nila yun anak nyo.”
“Pero why are they so excited?”
“Naku brod, may nakita atang artista. Si Ivy panay ang kwento kagabi. Si Maya ba hindi?”
“So yun pala yun pinaguusapan nila kagabi.”
“So alam mo pala brod?”
“Ah no. I just overheard them. Sino daw ba?”
“Ewan ko. Masyadong excited si Misis eh. Nagbihis pa yun at dala yun camera. Magpapapicture daw sila.”
“What? No! I won’t allow Maya to do that with an actor. It’s embarrassing.”
“Hayan mo na brod atsaka bata pa naman si Maya. Okay lang yan. Si misis nga di ko naman pinagbawalan.”
“You allowed Ivy?”
“Oo naman. Para naman kiligin at matuwa siya.”
“What! I won’t allow my wife na kiligin sa iba.”
“Brod artista yun, paghanga lang, fan lang sila. It’s not like they will pursue him.”
“Kahit na. I won’t allow them to join the crowd of shrieking people begging to have their picture taken with an actor.”
“Naku brod, normal yan. Ang kj mo naman. Mamaya maaasar talaga sayo ang misis mo pati si Nikki. Atsaka wag mong itutulad sa edad mo yun edad ni Maya. She’s fun-loving, free-spirited. You can’t curtail her from acting her age just like when doesn’t complain if your being your grumpy old self.”
“I am not!”
“Yes you are. Kaya ka napagkakamalang….”
Then Ryan laughed.
Ricky just shook his head.
He was annoyed at the thought of his wife feeling giddy, kilig over someone other than him.
Siguro he is jealous too.
Ryan could easily read the mind of his friend.
“O sige brod para lang makampante ka, halika sundan natin sila.”
“Okay. Para makita ko rin yun siguradong pangit na artistang yun.”
“Wow ang gwapo natin brod!”
“Yes we are! Tayo lang ang dapat gwapo sa paningin nila. I can’t even believe that you’re cool with it.”
“Kasi brod you are overreacting. Atsaka are you doubting Maya’s taste of who’s gwapo or not? Kasi if oo, e di alanganin yun hitsura mo? Hindi ka rin sure if you are kasi baka nagkamali lang ng taste si Maya.”
“Stop being her lawyer brod. Tara na puntahan natin.”
In the beach, a shooting for a show was being held. The camera is rolling.
The fans who were watching the shoot were all giddy and excited to see their favorite actors.
Nikki was so kilig with the teenage actor while Maya and Ivy was eyeing the mature actor.
The actor was still inside the cottage. Maya and Ivy overheard that he will go out of his cottage to join his family in swimming.
Everyone was excited. Cameras were ready for the shoot.
Even the fans who were watching had their own cameras not wanting to miss the opportunity to take pictures of the actor.
Maya was so kilig. She was squeezing Ivy’s arm.
“Naku lalabas na siya. Makikita natin yun abs nya? Mag swimming trunks kaya or shorts?”, she told Ivy.
“Kahit ano Maya basta lumusong siya sa tubig at makita ang abs nya okay na sakin.”
The two were so kilig.
“Okay take. Lights camera action!”, the director shouted.
Everyone waited with bated breath.
Then the actor came out in his pajamas and proceeded near the shore to assist his onscreen wife.
“Cut! Good take!”
Murmurs of disappointment were heard.
“Pajama sa beach? Naku naman!” Maya was complaining as if nalugi siya.”
“Tapos hindi man lang nabasa yun paa!” Ivy added.
Natapos yun shoot.
The fans were given the chance to mingle with the cast.
The lead actress and actor was so indulgent with the fans who wanted their signatures and pictures.
Hindi napigilan ni Maya yun sarili nya.
“Ms Jodi bakit nakapajama si Sir Richard sa eksena?”
The actress laughed. She mischievously glanced at her onscreen husband then burst into laughter again.
She patted his back while saying..
“Dadami kasi yan si partner kapag nababasa ng tubig. Ipinaglihi kasi sa gremlins.”
Her partner added.
“Oo at pag dumami ako baka magkaproblema sina Direk.”
The two joked which made their fans very happy and Maya and Ivy less disappointed even if they didn’t see what they expected to see.
After taking pictures and giving signatures, the cast were called by the crew to prepare to leave.
Yes the show being shot at the same beach where Richard Lim and his family together with Ryan Molina and his family were staying was ABS-CBN’s top show Be Careful With My Heart and the actors were Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria.
Maya, Ivy and Nikki were on their way back to their own cottage when they met Ricky and Ryan.
“O akala ko ba magtatagal kayo dun. May shooting daw sabi ng staff ng resort?” Ryan asked.
“Tapos na.” Ivy answered.
“O why do you look disappointed?” Ricky asked as well.
“Kasi dad, yun crush ni mom na actor, hindi man lang nag proper beach attire. He’s in pajamas dad.”
“Anong tinatawa tawa mo dyan?”
“Sweetheart ikaw kasi nandito naman ako pupunta punta ka pa dun. I bet his body and legs needed to be covered. Baka mataba, baka may peklat yun legs. Tama ako brod pangit yun.” Ricky confidently said.
“Oy hindi ha! Gwapo kaya siya. Kamukhang kamuha mo nga.”
Then Maya showed them the pictures she took.
“Brod kamukha mo nga!”
“Aba oo at gwapo pala talaga.” Ricky agreed.
Pero feeling lugi pa rin si Maya so she dragged her husband.
“Tara na sweetheart swimming tayo at mag beach attire ka ha!”
“Hey hey wag mo akong idadamay sweetheart. I don’t wanna swim now. Mamaya na.”
A look of disappointment was seen on Maya’s face. Ricky was quick to notice it.
He hugged her. Sabay bulong….
“If you want me to do that dahil lang hindi ginawa ng actor na yun, I’ll give you a better alternative.”
She also answered in a whisper.
“At anong alternative yan sweetheart?”
“Siyempre a better place to swim at hindi tayo mangingitim kahit wala swimming attire.”
He naughtily smiled at her.
“Puro ka talaga kalokohan!” She slapped him.
“Oy brod, Maya bakit panay ang bulungan nyo?”
“Nothing brod. Pasok muna kami ni Maya sa kwarto. I’ll pacify her muna.” He grinned.
Nagblush si Maya at she lightly slapped him.
Then the couple proceeded to their room.
Ryan shook his head and placed the “don’t disturb” sign at his favorite couple’s door.
A/N. Mashed up story kasi di gumagana braincells ko for a serious story. Pasensya po. Pero yes, kamukhang kamukha ni Ricky ni Maya si onscreen hubby Richard ni Jodi. And si Nikki? Si niccolo yun fave naman nya. Magulo ba? ✌😊
