A/N I finally found part 2 of https://dreamytimmy.wordpress.com/2015/05/28/the-lim-family-outing/ . This is for you Ms. Marian for requesting it. Di ko na masyadong naedit.
I appreciate all your comments and even if I seldom reply, I take note of them.
Again, all the stories here are written to fill the absence of our fave couple on TV.
Good vibes lang.
Those who reacted violently, thank you for your emails too. These are just fanfictions.
Here goes part 2 (old fanfic na to)
After that very early morning swim, Maya felt as if a heavy weight had been lifted off her chest.
She realized that she can pull off wearing a swimsuit and that it’s no big deal.
She felt confident that her Ser Chief even complimented how she looked.
That was the most important part of it.
Maya, being the provincial lass that she is, is really conservative when it comes to clothes and even when it comes to her actions.
Her co-FAs would always tease her about it and advise her to change her wardrobe especially now that she is Mr. Lim’s girlfriend.
She never relented despite their prodding.
She believed that her Ser Chief loved her the way she is.
She always thought that way until yesterday when he asked her to wear that swimsuit he bought.
Maybe her co-FAs were right after all.
They were right that in order to keep Mr. Lim interested in her, she should try to change or improve herself.
This won’t mean changing her ideals but at least be brave enough to keep up with the circle of associates Richard has.
Richard always made her feel that he is proud of her and she promised herself that she would take extra effort to keep him proud of her.
She would start with her wardrobe and with her openness to new things, whatever those will be.
On the other hand, Richard is grumpy as hell.
The cold shower didn’t help at all.
He tried to go back to bed but everytime he closes his eyes, the image of Maya in that wet two piece swim wear would invade his thoughts.
This is his own doing and he wants badly to scold himself.
Oh well, he is suffering enough already anyway.
He always knew Maya was beautiful but it’s not her beauty that captivated him.
It was her personality that he loved most.
But with what he saw, he is no longer sure if her personality would top his list of the things he admires in her.
He is no longer sure for what he could only think of now is her curves, her flawless skn, her long shapely legs.
Suddenly someone knocks on his door.
Maya: Sir Chief? Sir Chief? Gising ka na? Nakahanda na yun breakfast. Sir Chief?
SC: Argh!!! Please let her leave (he silenty hopes)
Maya: Sir Chief. Ikaw na lang yun hinihintay sa mesa.
SC: (opens the door) What is it Maya?
Maya: (smiles sweetly at him) Good Morning Ser Chief. Tara breakfast na tayo.
SC: Ah eh..sige susunod ako. (he can’t look straight at Maya, he is fidgety, beads of sweat are forming in his nape and forehead.)
Maya: Uy SC, okay ka lang?
SC: Yes (he swallows hard) I am ok. Go ahead na Maya. I’ll be right there. Tell them to eat ahead.
Maya: Sure ka? Masama bang pakiramdam mo?
SC: Sige na Maya.
When Maya left, he proceeded to his bathroom to take another cold shower and prepare himself.
He wouldn’t want to spoil their vacation, just because of his manly urges, especially when his parents are around.
Besides he was always in control, he has always been in control of himself.
It is that attitude that made him the successful businessman he is now.
He convinces himself that he would get through this one.
Even he, himself was surprised at why he’s acting this way.
He just attributes it to his 5 years of being alone after Alex died.
It’s been a long time already and it’s the first time that he’s been close to a woman he loves after Alex.
All he needs is to get a grip of himself and divert his attention on something else.
He proceeds to the table where the whole family were already eating their breakfast.
Everybody greeted him and he nodded in return.
Don Roberto: Oh Ricky, napasarap ata ang tulog mo. Kaso etong mama mo nangungulit na dapat mamasyal tayo mamaya.
The kids, Joma, Doris and Sabel are now leaving the table and running towards the beach.
Dona Esmeralda: O anak, okay ka lang? Are you not feeling well? Sabi kasi ni Maya, namumula ka daw kanina tapos parang iba yun kilos mo (she proceeds to feel Richard’s forehead to check if he has fever).
SC: Ma I’m fine. Just tired I guess.
Dona Esmeralda. Who told you kasi to swim very early when you should have slept na lang. Pati si Maya ginising mo.
Richard looks at Maya.
He thought Maya told the rest of the household about their early morning swim.
When he saw Maya, as surprised as he was, he knew that his mom didn’t learn about it from her.
His mom further confirmed this.
Dona Esmeralda: Naku Ricky, matanda na ako. I usually wake up at 3 am. I heard you and Maya kanina. I wanted to join you kaso parang makakaistorbo lang ako.
Namula si Maya at si Richard. They acted like teenagers na nahuli. Manang Fe and Don Roberto were throwing knowing glances at the couple.
Maya tried to divert her embarrassment
Maya: Kunin ko muna po yun mga prutas sa kitchen. (and before anybody could say a word, umalis na siya)
Doña Esmeralda: O ano Ricky. You enjoyed ba or what? Ang ganda ng girlfriend mo at bagay na bagay yun binili mong swimsuit. I would die to have a body like that.
Manang Fe was laughing and shaking her head at the same time. The three were having a blast teasing Richard.
Dona Esmeralda: Naku tigilan mo nga ako. Alam ko yun mga ganyang gawain. At talagang ikaw pa ang bumili ng isusuot ng girlfriend mo ah! Manang mana ka sa papa mo.
SC: I don’t know what you are talking about (tries so hard to deny and look unaffected).
Doña Esmeralda, Don Roberto and Manang Fe are all laughing at Richard’s expense.
When Maya returned to the table they continued their breakfast.
Richard’s parents were amused by Maya’s stories and even Manang Fe would join in laughter.
Richard, was just silently eating his breakfast, trying his best to avoid any interaction with Maya.
DE: Oh Ricky we decided na magshopping kasama ng mga bata after our breakfast. Sa labas na rin tayo maglunch.
MF: Pinahanda ko na kay Joma yun mga sasakyan kanina pa.
SC: Hindi na muna ako sasama. I need to finish something for the office.
DR: Bakit naman? I thought this was a vacation? Why do you need to work?
DE: Definitely! We’re here for rest and recreation!
Maya: Ser Chief sama ka na. Mas masaya pag kumpleto tayo.
SC: (still avoiding Maya’s gaze) Basta kayo na lang. (he dismissed them grumpily and stood to go to his room)
DR: (surprised) What happened? He seemed to have woken up on the wrong side of the bed.
MF and DE just smiled and shook their heads.
Maya: Ah eh, sundan ko na po muna si SC.
DE: Wag na iha. Ako na lang. Mabuti pa tawagin nyo na ang mga bata pati sina Joma, Doris at Sabel para makapaghanda at makapag bihis na.
MF: Ah sige po Ma’m.
DR: Okay, since di sasama si Ricky ako na lang magmamaneho ng isang sasakyan.
Maya: Ah si Luke po, nagdridrive na rin siya. Baka po kasi mapagod kayo eh.
DR: Ah mabuti pa nga iha.
Meanwhile, DE is now knocking at Richard’s door.
SC: Ma, I’m busy.
DE: (enters the room) Busy, with what? Busy lying down and calming your nerves? (laughs)
DE: Naku Ricky, kilalang kilala kita. Instead of sulking here, join us so you could distract yourself from whatever goes on in that naughty mind of yours.
SC: Ma, I really need to have some documents done. Liza is waiting.
DE: Whatever you say. It’s up to you. O siya, I have to prepare. We’re gonna enjoy the place while we’re here. Do whatever suits you.
SC: Okay Ma. Enjoy kayo.
DE: Okay. One thing more son. (she looks at Richard teasingly) Never, start what you have no right to finish! Magkakasakit ka talaga nyan, hahaha!
DE leaves Richard red of frustration.
The whole family left Richard. Manang Fe, Sabel, Dona Esmeralda and Nikki are in the van with Joma while Don Roberto, Doris and Abby are in the bmw with Luke.
Unknown to Richard, Dona Esmeralda, requested Maya to just stay behind.
Aware that everybody had left, Richard decided to spend his day in the cottage by the beach.
At least, the sea breeze would help calm his nerves and recharge from the draining emotional turmoil or urges he had.
The weather is great, perfect for strolling since the sun is hidden beneath the clouds.
He was strolling by the shore.
Richard couldn’t help but reflect on the events that happened in his family.
He is really happy and he is very blessed.
His relationship with his kids had never been better.
Luke is like his barkada.
They can talk openly about anything ranging from school to even girls.
Nikki is a lovely young lady now.
Who would have thought that he was able to raise his kids to be the good kids they are now on his own, of course with the help of Manang Fe and of course Maya.
Abby is now talking and in fact doing great in school and talking a lot. He can’t help but shake his head and laugh at Abby’s transition to a very talkative little girl, little Maya, she indeed is.
The household are also doing well. Manang Fe, Joma, Sabel and Doris are all healthy and are still ever loyal and efficient.
They are actually his extended family and he is certain that he can trust each one of them with his family.
His parents are also healthy and enjoying themselves travelling to different parts of the world.
And of course, Maya, his Maya still never fails to make him smile, make him feel loved and taken cared of.
He again longs for her company, for intimacy, he tries so hard to shake the thought off his mind.
His own musings were interrupted.
Maya: Ser Chief! Mabuti naman lumabas ka na sa kwarto mo.
SC: (surprised) O why are you here? Di ka sumama sa kanila?
Maya: Sabi ng Mama mo samahan daw kita kaso di ka naman lumalabas ng kwarto. Ano ba kasi ang problema mo? (she is worried actually)
SC: Nothing. I just needed to finish work. Have you eaten? It’s already lunch time.
Maya: Nagluto na ako. Nandun sa cottage. Gusto mong kumain?
SC: Ah not yet. Mamaya na.Busog pa ako.
Maya is seated in the middle of a large beach towel by the shore.
She was reading a book when she saw him walking.
Richard is just standing in front of her.
Maya: Dito ka na Ser Chief. Malaki pa naman ang space. Upo kana sa tabi ko. Tingnan mo ang ganda ng dagat.
SC:(napalunok, sits beside Maya) Why are you here? (he is trying his best to sound normal).
Maya: Wala naman kasi akong magawa sa loob. Hindi ka naman maistorbo (tampo nya)
SC: I’m sorry. Di ko kasi alam na nagpaiwan ka pala. Sorry ha, baby.. (he reaches for her and hugs her)
Maya is leaning in Richard’s chest while their fingers are intertwined.
Maya: Sus. Di ka naman kailangan magsorry.
She stares lovingly at SC who in return plants a kiss on her forehead and hugs her tightly.
SC: Kahit na. You were here all alone while nandun lang ako sa room. Dapat sinasamahan kita.
Maya: Eh hindi mo naman alam na nandito ako.
SC: Kahit na.
He holds her tighter.
SC: How do you find Mama and Papa?
Maya: (looks at him tenderly) Ang babait nila Ser Chief. At ang saya nilang kausap.
Maya: Oo SC. Atsaka yun daddy nyo magaling mag joke. Hindi corny kagaya mo (she was laughing at him)
SC: (raising his eyebrows) So you mean mas nakakatawa si Papa mag joke sakin?
Maya: Oo naman Ser Chief. Atsaka hindi mahilig mag tiger mode ang Papa mo, hahaha!
SC: (smirks now) Tara na nga. Let’s eat lunch na.
Maya: Oy pikon.
SC: Of course not. Gutom lang.
Maya: Eh Ser Chief matanong ko lang. Bakit mo ba ako iniiwasan kanina?
SC: Di kita iniiwasan. Why would you say that.
Maya: Oo kaya. Alam ko naman yun Ser Chief. Ramdam ko kaya. At napaka obvious mo.
SC: No. I’m not. In the first place why would I hug you like this if iniiwasan kita? (hugs her tightly) or kiss you like this (he now plants a kiss on her lips).
Without deepening the kiss, he slowly breaks away and stares at Maya with a smile on his face.
He was cautious that he might end up doing what he shouldn’t be doing that’s why he stood up and told Maya that they should eat lunch now.
Maya prepared her own version of adobo, sweet and sour fish, various fruits, and buco juice for their lunch.
They appreciated this alone time together. He’s thankful that his mom allowed them to be together.
After enjoying the sumptuous lunch and cleaning up afterwards, the couple decided to return to the beach.
Walking hand in hand by the beach, they enjoyed the feel of the sand and the cool breeze of the sea.
This is perfect, he thought.
She is perfect.
SC: Well, you know I’m not getting any younger. Luke is now in college and Nikki will be soon too. Si Abby naman is now in big school.
Maya looks at him wondering where the conversation is leading to.
SC: Then ikaw naman, you’re beginning to realize your dreams. Okay naman sina Nanay Teresita, Mamang, Kute and Cho. Even your chibugan is doing well.
Maya: Oo nga Ser Chief Ang saya ng mga pangyayari. Di ko inakala na dadating ako sa ganito. At thank you dahil kung hindi sa’yo hindi ko maaabot ang nga pangarap ko.
SC: There you go again. How many times should I tell you that you reached your dreams on your own. Your determination, your hardwork brought you close to the realization of your dreams.
Maya: Kasama yun pero ikaw yun unang tumulong sakin.
Natawa si Richard remembering how Maya bargained for him to finance her schooling.
Nahiya rin siya.
SC: Oh stop it. I feel bad tuloy. Remember yun deal natin na maging yaya kanni Abby para pagaralin kita. Parang ang sama ko tuloy.
Maya: (natawa) Uy hindi naman. Tinulungan mo pa rin ako at may bonus pa!
Maya: Kasi kahit noong una parang di nyo ako feel, ng tumagal, naging pamilya ko kayo at trinato nyo akong pamilya nyo, lahat kayo- yun mga bata at sina Manang Fe. Ang laking pasalamat ko dun Ser Chief. Ambait ninyong lahat sakin.
SC: We’re all smitten by you.
Maya couldn’t stand Ser Chief’s intense gaze anymore.
She stood frozen in front of him.
Unable to control himself anymore, he slowly descended his lips on Maya’s soft ones.
She closed her eyes feeling the sensation brought about by his kiss.
Though inexperienced she tried to return it.
He made sure to be gentle, not to rush things for he knows that Maya might feel uncomfortable.
They will get there.
But for now, he will be the supportive boyfriend to Maya until she reaches her dreams.
When that happens he will fulfill another dream of hers – to have a loving husband and plenty of kids.
But that would be in the future.
Now, he could settle for a kiss and a hug and lots of cold showers.
(Wag nang humirit please!😆)
A/N di kaya pulmunyahin si Ricky sa lots of cold showers na yan?
