The Time Airways was having their annual party for their employees and their families. They have also invited their colleagues in the aviation industry. It was an annual event to also award their top Flight Attendants and Pilots.
Maya dela Rosa -Lim , was as usual the top awardee of the airlines. She had been receiving the award for three consecutive years already. But this year was extra special for she is now married to Engineer Richard Lim. She was proud of her accomplishments but mostly proud to be the wife of Mr. Lim. As she always used to say, para siyang nakajackpot sa lotto.
Maya arrived at the venue with Joma.
Richard’s flight was delayed so she had no choice but ask Joma to accompany her to the venue before fetching Richard at the airport.
The event where the Time Airways was holding the party was near the airport anyway.
She was sure that Ricky would join her as soon as he arrives.
She badly wanted him to be with her at this event.
After an hour, Ricky arrived with Captain Ventura who was the pilot of his flight. She immediately met her husband to give him a hug and kiss.
“Sorry sweetheart late ako. Tapos na ang awarding?”
“Oo sweetheart yun akin tapos na pero okay lang. Ang importante nandito ka.” She giddily replied.
“Where will I sit ba?”
“Ay naku sweetheart dun ka na muna sa table ng LAS tapos mamaya lilipat ako dun. May group awards pa kasi at mas malapit dito ang stage. Hindi ako mahihirapan maglakad. Medyo masakit pa kasi sa paa yun sapatos na nabili ko.”
“It’s okay sweetheart. Dun na muna ako kina Liza.”
“I’m so proud of you. I love you!” Ricky said then winked at her before he left to join the LAS table.
Kilig na kilig na naman si Maya.
She is now bored while waiting for their group to be called. If di lang masakit yun paa nya, she would have chosen to stay with her husband whom she missed so badly.
They haven’t seen each other for five days because Ricky was in Singapore for an international conference.
Hindi na mapakali si Maya. She saw Ricky texting so she decided to text him na din.
It is took him about five minutes before he replied.
“Hindi naman. Why?”
“How do I look? Maganda ba yung damit ko?”👗😊
“You look stunning as always.”😊
“Pero mas maganda yun nabili ko na pang-ilalim nyan.” 😝👙
“Namiss kita. Did you miss me?” 😍
“Ang gwapo mo ngayon!” 😍
“Ngayon lang?” 😒
“Siyempre palagi pero extra gwapo ngayon.” 😝😍
“Well thank you.” ☺
“Kumusta yun flight?” 😃
“Delayed kasi may turbulence.” 😐
“Pero okay ka naman? Nahilo ka ba?”
“I’m fine Maya. Okay lang ako. Thanks for asking.” ☺
“Gutom ka? Gusto mong kumain?” 😊
“I’m bored here. Ang tagal ng awarding.”😒
“Sige ka baka bawiin award mo.”😁
“But you are my one and only award!” 😍
“Naks ang cheesy!” 😂
“Hindi ka bored?” 😞
“Hindi naman. I’m amused with the messages you send me.” 😁😉
“Nakakaasar ka!” 😡
“Oh bakit naman?”😮
“Para kasing hindi ka man lang excited sa mga reply mo.” 😕
“And how should I reply ba? Ano naman ang mga expected mong reply ko?”😝
“Alam mo na… yung mga parati mong sinasabi….” 🙊🙊🙊
“Sa personal ko na lang sasabihin. Not here.”🙊
“Ewan ko sa’yo. Hindi ka man lang sweet ngayon. Late ka na nga.”😏
“Hindi ko kasalanan na late ako. Kasalanan ng eroplano.” 😁
“Kahit na… Nakakatampo ka!” 😞😒
“Pagod lang ako. Sorry na.” 😊
She felt that James was staring at her pati na rin si Emman.
“Oh ano naman ang problema ninyong dalawa? Bakit ganyan kayo makatingin?”
“Wala naman roomie. Nakakaaliw lang kasi facial expressions mo. Siguro katxt mo si serchief Ricky mo ano?”
“Eh sino yan? Bakit di mo mabitawan ang phone mo? Tapos si Serchief Ricky busy din sa phone nya. Oh my God roomie…. nagpapalitan kayo ng SPG messages ano?”
“Excuse me Emman! Hindi kami ganun ha! Wholesome kaya kami!”
“At ano naman yan Captain Ventura na tinatawa-tawa mo dyan?” Maya glared at James.
“Wala naman Mayabels. Naalala ko lang kasi ng maging txtmate kami ni Sweetheart Superman, este Richard mo.” He grinned.
“James ha! Sabi ng kalimutan at wag ng babanggitin yun!” Asar talo na si Maya.
“O siya at baka magalit at top employee natin. Baka hindi tayo iblowout nyan Emman. Behave na nga tayo.”
“Buti alam nyo. Wag nyo na nga akong istorbohin.”
Her two friends just laughed at her.
Maya resumed texting. She saw Ricky glanced and winked at her. Mas lalo siyang kinilig.
“Alam mo mas gusto kitang katabi kesa sa dalawang asungot na to sa tabi ko.” 😠
“Ay grabe! Asungot talaga?”😁
“Yes kasi iniistorbo nila yun pagtext natin.”
“Be attentive Maya. Mapagalitan ka nyan.”
“Hindi yan. Si James rin nga panay text.”
“But he’s your boss.”
“He’s my friend din kaya okay lang yan.”
“Pagod ka? Matutulog ka agad tonight?”
“Ha? Why do you ask?”
“Alam mo na…”😝
“Ipa spell pa daw. Ang slow mo naman.”
“Ano nga sabi?”
“Eh safe ako tonight.” 😉😊
“At ano naman pakialam ko kung safe ka?!?!?”🙉😱😱😱
Napikon si Maya. Not only was Ricky’s last reply uncalled for, but his previous messages were also ‘walang lambing.’ She was pissed.
She turned off her phone. Nakita nya na panay pa rin kalikot ni Ricky sa phone nya.
Mas lalo siyang naasar.
Her friends noticed it.
“O ano yan? LQ sa text?”
“Tumigil ka nga Emman. Napipikon ako!”
James just laughed at her while shaking his head in amusement.
After the awarding, Maya was still sulking. Di na siya lumapit sa upuan ni Ricky. He approached her.
“Sweetheart akala ko you will join me.”
She just stared at him. Nagtatampo.
“Oh what have I done? Bakit ganyan ka makatingin?”
“Nagtanong ka pa!”
“Hindi nga sweetheart. Why are you mad at me? Atsaka bakit nakaoff yun phone mo? I was trying to call you kanina para patabihin na sa akin.”
“Nakakaasar ka! Parang wala lang sa’yo!”
Ricky was totally clueless pero ayaw nyang kulitin si Maya. They were still in the middle of many people. Besides he finds his wife adorably cute. Baka nagtatampo si Maya kasi nga late siya.
He just sat beside her on her Time Airways table. All her co FAs were dancing and she was left alone with Ricky.
“Let’s dance sweetheart.”
“Ayoko. Dito na lang ako. Hanap ka na lang ng ibang kasayaw.”
He sighed deeply. Here they go again.
“Sweetheart alam mo your mood swings are getting worse. Bigla ka na lang nagagalit when wala namang reason.”
“Walang reason? So wala lang yun? Naglalambing na nga, ganun pa ang mga sagot mo!”
“Ha? What are you talking about?”
Maya was already agitated. Si Ricky naman clueless talaga.
“Tawagan ko na nga si Kuya Joma. Umuwi na tayo.”
Pagod na rin si Ricky at asar na din sa mood swings ni Maya.
“Fine! Uwi na tayo!”
When she turned on her phone, she saw two more messages from Ricky.
Tiningnan muna nya ng masama si Ricky bago basahin ang messages nito. Alam nya na he’s probably saying sorry in his messages.
“Maya, next time you and your sweetheart Ricky should have a separate phone for each other. Pasalamat ka na ako lang to.📱”
“Maya wag kayong magpupuyat tonight kahit ‘safe’ ka. Maaga ang flight natin huy! 😂”
Maya was beet red. Hiyang hiya siya. She could only cover her face.
Ricky saw her. Nagtaka naman siya kung bakit.
“What’s wrong this time? Bakit ganyan ang hitsura mo?”
She just shook her head then pulled her chair closer to Ricky and hid her face in his chest.
“Bakit nga? What’s wrong?”
She just handed him her phone.
Binasa ni Ricky. He couldn’t stop laughing.
On their way home, tawa ng tawa si Ricky while kinukurot siya ni Maya. Di naman nila mapagusapan in detail kasi Joma was with them.
Pagdating sa bahay…
“Bakit naman kasi pangalan ko yun nilagay mo sa number ni James?”
“Eh kasi di ba bawal kang kausapin kasi may conference ka tapos si Emman inaasar ako na di kita nakakausap kaya ayun nilagay ko yun name mo sa number ni James kasi siya yun kausap ko nung isang araw. Akala ko napalit ko na. Nakakahiya sweetheart!”
“That makes the two of us. Compatible talaga tayo sweetheart!” Ricky teased her.
“Sira! Kahit sa kapalpakan compatible tayo.”
“Yes. Don’t worry its just James. I admit I’m beginning to like your friend. He’s not that bad at all.”
“Sinasabi mo lang yan kasi ako ang napahiya.”
“Kaasar ka Ricky.”
“Let’s stop talking about James na. So safe ka nga ba talaga tonight?”
Nangiti si Maya, pademure, kilig…
“So what are we waiting for? I missed you so much! Tara na sa first stop.”
“First stop sa bathroom! Let’s take a shower muna together.”
Then before Maya could react, he carried her towards their bathroom.
A/N Ano naman ang ginagawa ni Ricky sa cellphone nya? Ano pa nga ba eh di nagsosolitaire. 😁
