Kwentong Maya & Ricky : Wardrobe Disagreement

Kwentong Maya & Ricky :  Wardrobe Disagreement

“You’re wearing that?” Ricky blurted out when Maya opened the door of the condo she shares with Emman. His brows were furrowed. He’s obviously in a bad mood.

Maya doesn’t want to spoil her day so she didn’t mind his mood. She even joked about it.

“Mukhang masama ang gising natin Sir Chief ko. Ang sungit mo naman. Wala man lang goodmorning ah!” She was smiling.

He didn’t smile but instead shook his head and smirked. He did greet her good morning though and also kissed her cheek.

Noticing that his mood hadn’t changed, Maya joked again, “Sir Chief masungit ka pa rin? Siguro natraffic ka no? O kaya may pasaway na driver kang naencounter. O kaya hindi nga nginitian ni Ate Guard dyan sa baba?  Huy ano?”

He just sighed in frustration that Maya didn’t realize the reason for his bad temper.

Maya continued, “Sabi ko naman kasi sa’yo wag mo na akong ihahatid. Pwede naman akong magpasundo sa shuttle ng Time Airways eh. Sina Edz nga nagpasundo rin. Gumising ka pa tuloy ng napakaaga. Dapat natutulog ka pa kasi alam kong late ka nang nakauwi kagabi at pagod ka sa daming eroplanong inayos ninyo.” She even babbled nonstop which annoyed him more.

“Maya hindi ako natraffic, wala akong pasaway na driver na naencounter, hindi ako sinungitan ng guard ninyo, hindi ako pagod at hindi ako antok, I am asking you if you’re wearing that.” He’s pointing to her cream shorts which exposed her slender, flawless legs.

Tumawa pa si Maya. “Di pa ba obvious  Sir Chief? Suot ko na nga, magtatanong ka pa.” Then she giggled pa. Parang nakakaloko.

Tiger mode na talaga siya. He’s just sharply staring at her, not saying anything.

But Maya just laughed at him, amused at his expression. “Ang sungit! Ano nga ang problema mo? Eto bang suot ko? Ayaw mo nito?”

He rolled his eyes which made Maya laugh harder. “Naku hindi bagay sa singkit mong mata ang ganyan. So eto ngang damit ko ang problema mo?”

“Yes.” He replied.

“Naku ang dami mo pang pasakalye. Sinabi mo na lang sana na ayaw mo ng suot ko. Ikaw talaga Sir Chief.”

“I don’t want to hurt your feelings.”

“Sir Chief hindi mahuhurt ang feelings ko kasi hindi ako katulad mo na pikon at matampuhin.”

“Maya!”

“Oo na. Magpapalit na.”

Then she left a relieved Sir Chief alone in their small living room to change her clothes.

======================

On the way to the Time Airways office where her  co-Fas will be waiting for her,

“Sir Chief bakit mo ako pinagbihis? Pangit ba yung damit ko?” She was curious. Di pa rin nya gets why. Or maybe she’s just pretending na di nya gets.

“Hindi.”

“Baduy ba yun hitsura ko?”

“No.”

“Pangit legs ko?”

“Of course not!”

“Eh bakit nga?”

Of course won’t admit that he didn’t want other guys admiring Maya’s legs.

He won’t admit that he’s getting jealous just imagining other guys admiring his girlfriend.

“Mainit. Baka umitim and legs mo.”

Natawa si Maya. “Ibig mong sabihin Sir Chief magsusuot ako ng pantalon kahit sa pupuntahan naming beach resort?” She stared at him incredulously.

“Yes. You better not swim. It’s not safe for your skin.”

“Huh? At bakit pa ako pupunta ng beach kung hindi lang naman ako mageenjoy sa dagat. Atsaka Sir Chief hindi naman ako katulad mo na natulog lang nung pumunta tayo ng mga bata sa Subic. Tapos nakapajama ka pa.” She was laughing as she recalled that incident where Richard had been incessantly teased by the kids and his parents for walking around the beach in his pajamas.

They were on a vacation then and Nikki and Sabel packed shorts for him and a pajama for sleeping. Since he refused to wear shorts, he just used his pajama during their entire stay.

Pikon na naman si Sir Chief. “Basta don’t wear shorts on the beach.”

“Ay hindi pwede Sir Chief! Pagtatawanan naman ako nyan nila Eds at Emman kung lalangoy ako na nakapants.”

“Wag ka ngang magswimming. You can just stay sa cottage. Mabuti kung private resort yun pupuntahan nyo.”

“Sige pero sabihin mo muna yun totoong reason kung bakit?”

“Di ba nag sinabi ko na. Your legs will be exposed. Iitim yan.”

“Yan talaga ang dahilan?”  Nangungulit si Maya because she knows the real reason why ayaw ni Ricky na nakashorts sya and she already feels kilig.

“Okay fine! I don’t want other guys staring at your legs.” He admitted.

Maya was so giddy. She loves seeing her Sir Chief acting possessive and jealous. “Nagseselos ka?”

“Of course not! Ayaw ko lang.”

“Sus ayaw pang aminin. Don’t worry Sir Chief ko. Hanggang tingin lang naman sila.” Then she whispered to tease him more, “Hindi naman nila pwedeng hawakan.” She giggled.

“Maya!!!!”

“Binibiro lang kita Sir Chief. Kalma ka nga. Focus ka lang sa pagdrive.”

“How could I? Ang kulit mo!”

“Eh ikaw eh, ang cute mong magselos.”

“Hindi nga ako nagseselos.” Ricky denied it.

“Oo kaya.” Maya insisted.

“Hindi nga!” Ayaw talagang umamin ni Ricky.

“Oo!” Of course Maya is Maya.

“Hindi!” Deny pa rin ni Ricky.

“Hindi.” Maya used a different tactic.

“Oo!” Nalito si Ricky.

“Sabi ko na nga ba nagseselos ang Sir Chief ko.” Tuwang tuwa siya that she won.

“Hey I’m not! You just tricked me.”

“Trick trick! Halika nga pakiss!”

Then Maya gave her jealous boyfriend a lingering kiss on his cheek which, of course, diffused his hot temper.

Nagshorts pa rin ba si Maya?

Of course hindi,  kasi hindi na siya tumuloy sa swimming.

She preferred to spend her day with the kids and her Sir Chief instead of joining her co-FAs in their short vacation.

Kuwentong Maya & Ricky : Bonding

Kuwentong Maya & Ricky : Bonding

“Naku maalat na ata to! Patikim naman nito Ser Chief.”

She frowned. She’s disappointed at the dish she cooked.

Manang Fe, Doris, Sabel and Joma were all on their vacation. Luke and Abby were also at their grandparents house since it was their semestral break.

Nikki on the other hand had an unplanned meeting with the Teatro PUS at their house because her dad didn’t allow her to join if it would be held in another venue. Since she’s the TPUS president, she offered her house to be the venue for their meeting.

Ricky suggested that they should just have meals delivered for the Nikki and her visitors but Maya insisted that it would be healthier to have home-cooked meals. She actually wanted to do this for Nikki. She was thankful to Richard’s kids who wholeheartedly welcomed her to their lives when they learned that she is already their dad’s girlfriend.

She prepared kare-kare, adobo, beefsteak, fried chicken, chopseuy, leche flan and sago’t gulaman. She’s now grilling the barbeque in Manang Fe’s smokeless indoor grill but she’s so disappointed that she couldn’t achieve the taste she wanted.

She was stressed and worried that Nikki’s visitors won’t like the dish she cooked.

Ricky saw the worry on her face and immediately went near her.

“He grabbed the half bitten piece of barbecue from her.”

“Ako nga. I will taste it.”

Then he proceeded to kiss her lips.

“Ser Chief! Sabi ko tikim ng food hindi kiss. Ano ka ba! Nakakahiya.” She was bushing and she craned her neck to see if Nikki is nearby.

“Don’t worry wala naman si Nikki.”

“Ser Chief naman. Yang barbecue ang tikman mo!”

“Yun barbecue nga.”

“Eh hindi mo naman tinikman. Humalik ka lang eh.” She gave this cute little pout.

“Oh sige tikman ko ulit.” Then he kissed her lips again which made Maya all the more giddy and made her turn beet red.

He was smiling from ear to ear. He loved to see how his kiss affected her. It affected him as well for he knows that his ears are now blushing as well.

“Ser Chief ang kulit! Yun food nga! Panay ka naman kiss eh. Sumusobra ka na!”

“Kasi nga it will taste better if it’s on you.”

She just slapped him lightly.

“Ikaw talaga!”

Then he bit the piece of barbecue.

“Okay na. Ang sarap.” It wasn’t but he didn’t want to hurt her feelings.

“What time are they arriving?” He asked her.

“Hindi ko alam eh pero sabi ni Nikki papunta na raw dito. Baka natraffic lang yung mga bata.

“Oh sige you better go to Nikki. Naghihintay yun sa may gate. Ako na ang bahala dito.”

Then she proceeded to accompany Nikki while she’s waiting for the members of the Teatro PUS.

Richard spent time fixing all the dishes she cooked which were either matabang or maalat.

She may not be a wonderful cook but her effort to do something very special for his daughter overweighs her lack of skills in the cooking department.

==============================

Nikki’s schoolmates have left and Nikki had been thanking her Tita Maya nonstop for preparing the dishes which, even to Maya’s surprise, the kids appreciated.

After helping in washing the dishes they used, Nikki excused herself to go to her room.

Maya and Ricky were left at the large sofa at the living room. Ricky requested for her to stay a little longer before he brings her home to the condo she’s sharing with Emman.

“Thank you for doing this for Nikki.”

“Ser Chief masaya ako at may nagawa ako para kay Nikki. Kulang pa yan sa pagpapasalamat ko sa kanya.”

“Pasalamat saan?”

“Sa pagtanggap at hindi pagpapahirap sa akin.”

“And why do you think papahirapan ka ng mga bata?”

“Eh kasi ganun naman sa mga teleserye di ba?”

He chuckled. “You’re silly. On quality shows, there may be slight resentment but it could be resolved in a peaceful manner. Maybe sa non-quality seryes ganun ang nangyayari sa iniisip mo. That won’t happen to us. Iba tayo eh.”

“Kaya nga sobrang saya ko Ser Chief.”

“Me too I am very happy. Things like this make me very happy.”

“Anong things?”

“You cooking for the kids. It is very special Maya. It makes me love you even more.”

“Ser Chief naman eh. Tutunawin mo na naman ako sa mga pakilig na yan.”

“Uy Maya I’m not merely nagpapakilig. That’s what I really feel. You just don’t know how happy I was seeing you cooking there in the kitchen. It makes me want to see more of that very soon.”

“Ser Chief…”

“I know. I promise not to be a hindrance to your dreams. Okay na ako sa ganito for the meantime.”

“Salamat sa pag-unawa ha.”

“Anything for you Maya. I’ll wait until you have reached all your dreams, until matapos ka sa training mo, maging flight attendant ka na and until you have travelled the whole world.”

She looked at him incredulously. “Aantayin mo hanggang matapos kong lahat yun?”

“Yes.”

“Naku ang tagal naman nun Ser Chief! Hindi ba pwedeng hanggang matapos ko lang yun training. O sige tawad pa ng konti, hanggang sa makaumpisa lang ako sa trabaho bilang FA. Kung hihintayin mo pang maikot ko yun buong mundo, aba baka kapag nagkaanak tayo eh hindi mo na sila malalaro.” Then her eyes turned wide at the realization of what she just said. She got embarrassed and covered her face.

He was laughing at her but was very happy with what he heard. Now he knows that he’s already included in Maya’s future.

He embraced the very embarrassed Maya and kissed the top of her head.

“Hey tumingin ka nga!”

“Ayoko nakakahiya yung mga pinagsasabi ko!”

“Don’t be. You made me very happy with it.”

“Ikaw masaya. Ako sobrang nakakahiya!” Then she hugged him tighter and hid her face on his chest.

“Huy!” He was laughing harder.

“Ser Chief naman eh!” She’s still hiding her face.

“Sige ka. If you keep on hugging me like that baka hindi mo na matapos yun training mo.” He naughtily warned her.

Maya immediately disengaged from the embrace. “Kainis to!”

He continued to laugh at her but she’s now getting pikon so change topic si Ricky.

“Ang sarap ng mga niluto mo. Naubos ng mga bata.”

“Uhm… I’m sure inayos mo yun kanina.”

“Of course not.”

“Peksman mamatay man ang mga langgam?”

He laughed at her silliness. “Halika nga ulit dito. Payakap ulit.”

“Ayoko na Ser Chief baka magkatotoo yun sinabi mo.”

“Ang alin?”

“Yun hindi ako matapos sa training.” Oh Maya is so innocently cute.

“Hindi yan. Kung ako, I could control myself, ewan ko na lang sa’yo.”

“Oy Ser Chief ha! Overconfident ka ha! Of course kaya ko rin yan!”

“Talaga?”

“Oo naman!”

“Patunayan mo nga.”

“Oo ba!” Then she proceeded to cuddle with him again at the Lim sofa.

A smiling and very contented Ricky possessively encircled his arms around her while they both listed to each other’s heartbeat, which were definitely meant for each other.
