The Adventures and Misadventures of Ricky, Maya, Emman & WordPress: Fun Fan Fic
“Huy roomie why are you so sad? Parang Byernes Santo ang mukha mo.” Emman had been watching his bestfriend for a few minutes now. He arrived from his flight and he saw Maya alone at their Time Airways cafeteria. She was toying with her barely-eaten pasta, while in deep thought and seemingly spaced out.
She didn’t even hear him so Emman needed to wave his hand in front of her. “Maya dela Rosa Lim!” Emman said in a loud voice.
“Ay Maya! Ha?! Ano? Bakit?” Then when she realized that it was just Emman she even frowned. “Kainis ka naman Emman. Nakakagulat ka! Akala ko naman kung sino.”
“Aba at nagalit pa! Hoy roomie kanina pa kita pinagmamasdan. Tulala ka kaya! What’s wrong? C’mon share! Sa flights ba? With Ms. Calandra?” She didn’t react but when Emman said, “Si SerChief Ricky?” Maya heaved a deep sigh and her face again turned sad.
“Oh si Ser Chief Ricky nga!” Then Emman worriedly asked, “Nag-away kayo? Roomie normal naman yan sa mag-asawa, dapat lang eh mag-usap, magdamayan at wag….”
“Hep hep! Anong away? Excuse me Emman! Hindi kami nag-aaway ni Sweetheart Ricky ko no!” She was quick to react.
“Eh di kayo na ang mag-asawang di nag-aaway! Teka kalma ka nga! Grabe ka naman maka-react. O siya kung hindi kayo nag-aaway or nagtatampuhan, why are you sad? Look o wala kang ganang kumain ng lunch. Naku ano yan? Naglilihi ka?” Emman askd with an exaggerated expression on his face.
She blushed and shook her head. “Uy Emman hindi ah! Assumer aka rin! Ang liit pa kaya nila Sky and Sunshine para masundan.” Then she sighed again then added, “Namimiss ko lang si Ricky. Dalawang araw ko na siyang hindi nakikita.” Then her eyes automatically glistened with tears which she immediately wiped. “Pasensya na. Ang drama ko!”
Emman felt sorry for his friend pero ayaw naman nyang sabayan yun pagiging emotional ni Maya. “Naku roomie tama ka! Ang drama mo talaga. Dalawang araw pa lang naman pala kayong hindi nagkikita ng iyong dear hubby eh yun hitsura mo daig pa yun may mga asawang seaman na ilang taon na hindi nagkikita. Atsaka nasa Clark lang naman si Sir Chief Ricky, di ba?”
She sadly stared at him. “Oo nga pero iba pa rin kapag nasa tabi ko siya.”
“Ay ang oa mo roomie!”
Maya just rolled her eyes at him.
Then an idea hit Emman. He suddenly got very excited. Actually he wanted to share it with Maya weeks ago but Edz and Ruby prevented him. They were afraid that Maya might feel uneasy and awkward once she finds out. But Emman thought otherwise. He was sure that Maya would even be proud of it.
“Roomie alam ko na what you should do para malibang ka. I’m sure hindi mo masyadong mamimiss si Ser Chief Ricky. Actually secret dapat namin to ni Edz at Ruby kaso mukhang you need to know about it na rin.” Then Emman naughtily wiggled his brows.
“At ano naman yan Emman?”
Emman excitedly typed something on his phone then after a few seconds, he showed it to Maya.
“Seryoso to Emman?” Maya couldn’t believe what she’s seeing.
“Yes roomie. Si Edz ang naghanap nyan kasi one of her passengers mentioned about it. Sikat na sikat kayo ng iyong dear hubby! Maraming stories dyan roomie at kayo ni Ser Chief Ricky ang main characters. Nabasa ko na kalahati nyan and I must say nakakakilig siya. Read it roomie para malibang ka and you won’t miss your hubby that much.”
Richard Lim took a short break from what he’s doing. He wiped his forehead and drank the glass of water Lisa handed him.
He looked tired and stressed. He also lacked sleep.
“Sir here is the list of Engineer Yamaguchi’s pending work. May tatlong A330s pa at isang A300 from Cebu Pacific na kailangan matapos this week.”
Richard just sighed. The list Lisa gave him meant that he needs to stay in Clark until he finished all of Engineer Yamaguchi’s work. He was still finishing the Boeing 737 of Time Airways. He had a competent group of engineers but he can’t just leave the work to them.
His reliable head engineer had an emergency and was needed by his family in Japan. Richard had no choice but to take over Engineer Yamaguchi’s work.
He missed his wife and kids. They haven’t seen each other for two days and the phone calls weren’t enough for him. After they got married, he got used to waking up with his wife every single day. Maya just simply makes every single day worth living for him. He smiled as she imagined her. Then he turned lonely again.
“Lisa please don’t accept any maintenance jobs muna. I’ll just finish the four planes then uuwi na ako. Please tell Engineer Gutierrez to take charge of the Paranaque hangar while I’m here.”
“Yes Sir. Anything else?”
“Ah yes. Please order spaghetti, pizza and ice cream for the kids. Cupcakes na rin for the twins. Atsaka flowers na rin for Maya.”
Lisa smiled at her boss’ sweet gesture. “Sir miss na miss mo na talaga sila.”
“Yes Lisa. Sobra.”
“Don’t worry Sir. I’ll take care of it. Atsaka nagorder na rin pala ako kanina ng pagkain natin dito. I ordered your favorite sandwich and salad na rin. I asked Mam Maya of your preference kaya I’m sure tama yun inorder ko.”
“Thank you Lisa.” He thanked his secretary then continued his work.
Ricky just finished taking a bath and returned to their room to find his wife still holding her laptop. She’s again giggling while her eyes were glued to what she’s reading.
“Alam kong mayaman ka, sir chief. Pero tandaan mo, nasa dayuhang lugar ka. Baka maubusan ka ng baon mo.” She says as she goes through racks to pick out clothes for him. “Eto subukan mo.” She holds out to him a checkered long sleeved polo top. He makes a face of disgust but accepts the shirt anyway.
“Uy, joke lang. Di yan bagay sa’yo. Eto ang bagay sa’yo.” She gives him a dark red short sleeved polo shirt as well as a violet long sleeved shirt. “Sukatin mo yan habang maghahanap ako ng pangtulog mo.” She announces.
“Oh don’t worry about that. I can always sleep in the buff.” He smirks. Maya’s face turning red as she abruptly turns away. (Trippin’ – by Fleetingnote)
Maya was blushing while reading.
Ricky got more curious on what Maya has been reading. She’s too engrossed in it that she even failed to notice that he’s done taking a bath.
Just this morning when he fetched her from her flight, he found her teary-eyed and with a red puffy nose while reading something. He was worried but when she saw him, she smiled and ran to hug him.
When he asked why she was crying, she giggled and said that she was just feeling what she was reading. She just read ‘Intense by Kimbelle’ and she was so affected by the misunderstanding of the two characters.
In the afternoon, while the twins were having their nap, he saw Maya again busy with her laptop. She was laughing this time. She was reading ‘Reunited by mrsacc’ where Emman said that he wants to burn her tattered and torn handbag.
He interrupted her. “Sweetheart why are you laughing?”
“Nakakatawa kasi tong binigay sa akin ni Emman na website. Ang gaganda ng stories. Ang gwapo at ganda pa ng mga bida.” She purposely omitted mentioning that it was actually them on the stories. “Ang kulit ng mga characters. Ang sweet din ng bida. ” She replied.
“Can you share it with me? Same rin ba yan ng binabasa mo since I arrived this morning? Nakakatampo na ah. I missed you so much while I was at Clark while ikaw eh busy naman pala at hindi man lang ako namiss.” Tampo mode on.
Her eyes twinkled then she laughed at him. “Ay ang drama ng asawa ko. Halika na nga dito. Paakap at pakiss.”
“Maya hindi mo ako madadala sa yakap at kiss lang.” Tampo pa rin.
“Walang problema Ricky! Eh di halika na sa room for more.”
Ricky’s eyes grew in anticipation, “Sure ka sweetheart? Hug, kiss and more?”
“Yup more… hug, kiss at ititimpla kita ng kape at ireready ko yun dvd para wag mo akong iistorbohin sa binabasa ko.” Then she giggled again.
“You’re so mean Mrs. Lim.”
“I know.” She bantered.
When his wife fell asleep, Ricky quietly left their bedroom to proceed to his home office.
He got curious of what Maya had been reading that he called Emman to ask about it. The gullible Emman divulged that it was actually a fanfiction site made by people who knew them and got inspired by their love story.
Though he was thankful that it did take Maya’s mind from missing him, he can’t help but be upset and jealous of the ‘Richard Lim’ the writers depicted him to be. He was also offended when Maya mentioned that the Ricky in the stories is sweeter than him. That couldn’t be. Maya shouldn’t find any other guy better than him, even the Richard Lim character in the stories who was a mere product of some writer’s creative mind. He shook his head and smiled at what he was thinking and what he was about to do. It was so ‘un-Richard Lim-like’ but then again he was already very curious so he proceeded to his home office and opened his laptop.
He remembered Emman saying that the website Maya had been reading could be searched online. He even said to just type Sir Chief and Maya fanfics and the website will appear.
He did that and true enough he found it.
He couldn’t believe that it indeed had many stories, okay, fiction about him and his wife. He tried reading one and he found himself laughing at what was written. No wonder Maya got so engrossed in it. He read a few more and found that the Richard Lim in the stories was a responsible, a perfect husband and father. It warmed his heart. He was like that, he was sure of it. Maya never failed to mention that to him. He read some more and found that the character in the stories was sweeter and more demonstrative than him. So this is what Maya had been saying. He needs to address it soon or else this Maya might prefer the Richard character in the fanfics than him. He read some more and he felt himself get uneasy and he was sure that even his ears turned red at how ‘naughty’ and ‘adventurous’ Richard Lim was. He stopped reading. He might not be able to sleep anymore and might be forced to wake his wife to put into action what he read. He can’t do that.
After calming himself, he made a quick decision. He would show his wife that he was better than what she had been reading.
He dialed Lisa’s number.
“Sweetheart excited na ako!”
They were on their way to Baguio for a week-long vacation. They will be staying at a rented villa by themselves for the whole week.
Ricky told her that he would do everything that the Richard Lim in the stories did. They decided to reenact it the real Mr and Mrs. Lim way.
Her husband gave her a tentative smile. “Are you nervous sweetheart?” The question was actually for him for he was indeed nervous and also very pressured that he may not be able to meet his wife’s expectations.
She shook her head. But she noticed that he was fidgety and anxious
“O bakit namumutla ka Sweetheart? Ikaw ang kinakabahan no?” She was even teasing him. She knows that Ricky isn’t the showy type and what he will be doing is totally out of his character. It made her giddy. Kilig na kilig na siya at mas na inlove sa asawa.
“Of course not. Bakit naman ako kakabahan?” He denied it. “Baka naman ikaw?”
“Huh ako? Hindi no! Masyado na nga akong excited Sweetheart! Eeeehhhh!!! Kinikilig ako kapag naiimagine ko yun mga ginagawa mo sa stories.” She was blushing. She was really very excited kasi super sweet naman talaga ni Ricky sa stories. And Ricky promised that he will let her experience all those during their vacation.
Ricky just swallowed hard. Pinagpawisan ng slight.
She smiled sweetly at him. She really appreciated that Ricky will go out of his way to do the things which she considers as super kilig. She could imagine him dancing with her to the music of ‘So Close’ like what Richard Lim did in the story ‘The Beginning’ which she had been reading many times at the website. She was so sure that her husband would be doing that as well because it was the very first story that one would be reading at the website. Then she also imagined Ricky serenading her while playing a guitar. She also imagined him teaching her to swim on of the stories she read.
Seeing her husband’s anxious face, she playfully retorted “Sweetheart don’t worry I will guide you.” Then she giggled.
Nanlaki eyes ni Ricky. Then he just shook his head then engulfed her in his arms. Kabado na.
Ten minutes later, “Sweetheart are you disappointed?” he asked the question that has been bothering him.
“Huh? Disappointed saan?”
“Sa akin. Kasi I’m not the like the guy in those stories.”
“Uy hindi Sweetheart ha! Alam ko na naman na hindi ka sanay. Hindi ka adventurous” Then she giggled again as she imagined the Richard Lim in the story ‘His Present and His Future’ playing basketball with Jeff, Cho and Kute. Maybe she could also ask him to try it and be sweaty playing the game with her. Surely they could find a basketball court where they could play.
He gently cupped her face wanting her to look at him. “Be honest sweetheart, kahit konti ba hindi ka disappointed that I don’t do those things?”
She answered truthfully, “O sige na nga. Hindi naman disappointed pero yun gusto ko lang na maging ‘game’ ka kung minsan. Minsan lang naman Sweetheart. Para naman kapag nagkukuwento si Eds at Ruby ng ginagawa ng mga boyfriends nila for them may maikwento naman ako. Pero naiiintindihan ko naman kasi nga iba ka di ba? Iba tayo.”
He had a shocked expression, “Maya you shouldn’t share those kind of stories. That should be kept private.
Then he added, “Yun boyfriends nina Eds at Ruby they are like that?” He asked again.
“Oo Sweetheart pero expected naman yun kasi athletic yung mga boyfriends nila. Ikaw hindi pwede kasi baka sumakit mga buto mo.” Then she giggled again as she snaked her arms around his waist.
In a whisper, “God they do that? They do what my character do in those stories?”
Maya smiled sweetly at him then said sweetly “Yes sweetheart ganun sila. Ang sweet di ba?”
Edz, Ruby and their boyfriends are fond of hiking, swimming and extreme sports and those were their usual dates. Of course Maya doesn’t expect Ricky to be like that.
He sighed again then said, “Sweetheart we better sleep. We need all the energy for the activities I’ve planned.”
Knowing that his wife is not at all inhibited of what she knows would happen but rather excited, Richard began to relax. His anxiety is now replaced with anticipation.
“Oo sweetheart tulog muna tayo para may energy tayo pagdating dun. Atsaka wag ka ng masyadong kabahan. No pressure sweetheart. Dahan dahanin mo lang mga activities natin. Baka rayumahin ka.” She was pertaining to those harana, dancing, playing outdoor games in the stories. She giggled again. Then she even settled her head on his chest while her hands encircled his waist.
Ricky hugged her tight. He will be fine. He had brought all the props for their ‘activities’. He also brought different kinds of liniment and pain reliever medicines with him. He smiled as many naughty ideas entered his mind.
They were both comforted being in each other’s arms.
Both of them excited with what would happen.
Everything’s settled and from Maya’s reaction, she seems ready for anything.
Richard is now relaxed. He is now focused on how to beat the ‘Richard Lim’ character in those stories he have read. It would definitely be a wearisome task but definitely enjoyable week-long vacation.
Oh well may konting problema lang.
Maya had been reading the ‘medyo conservative’ na http://excessbaggageuniverse.wordpress.com while her husband had been reading ‘the naughty fanfic site’ http://csizoe.wordpress.com
Kaya naman pala kabado si Mr. Lim.
At kaya rin naman pala relax na relax lang si Mrs. Lim.
Si Emman naman kasi hindi nilinaw.
Lagot siya pagbalik ng mag-asawa.
Teka lagot nga ba?
A/N : CWSOA na susunod. Sorry for the delay.
