Skinny Love: I love you 2 (4/4) Finale pt.2
One last time.
The rain began to pour on the windshield of Art’s 69 Chevy. The windshield whooshed back and forth, frantically. Dahil sa ulan nagdecide na lang kaming magmovie. Art parked the car in the spot closest to the entrance that had been like nine cars down.
“Excuse me.” He softly told me as I leaned back in his chair, and sat up straight. He reached over me to retrieve his blue umbrella from the glove compartment.
“Wait until I open the door on your side.” Sinabi niya sakin bago lumabas ng kotse.
Something in my stomach pulsated. Needless to say that I was anxious. Ang daming nangyari sa araw na ‘to, at di ko pwedeng ipagkaila na isa ito sa pinakamasayang sandali ng buhay ko. To think the day wasn’t over yet. The day where we had chosen to wear our hearts on our sleeves…. unconsciously.
When he opened the door, I looked up at him, who held his hand out. Several flames ignited in places I overlooked. My lungs malfunctioned, my brain short-circuited. Art was too handsome to take, and too gentleman not to kiss!
Art grasped onto my soft hand. He closed the door, making sure to keep the umbrella over both of us. He held me close, a smile spread across his face. I didn’t remember a time when I was this frivolous and happy.
We walked in unison until we reached the doors. He sealed up his umbrella, and shook some water off of it. He proceeded to put the handle on the crook of his arm so that he could open the door for for me. “After you.” He motioned his hand towards the door.
“Why, thank you.” I walked inside, he followed me.
After he paid for his ridiculous amount of food, we headed to the cinema. The lights were dim, slow music was playing, and a pink hue hung above the screen.
Hinawakan niya ang kamay ko habang inaalalayan patungo sa pinakadulong upuan. I sat down in a more dainty fashion, proceeding to cross my legs. I could see that his eyes were on me all the time. Pero the next thing, di ko na kinaya.
Art put two straws in the bubbly beverage. The action sucked the breath out of me. He wanted us to share a drink! It was a sweet gesture. Perhaps way too sweet.
Anong problema nito? She gave me that what the hell look after I handed her a pack of junk food.
“What’s with the face?”
“Are you trying to make me fat?” Danny asked, which made me laugh out loud.
Tumigil ako sa pagtawa nang mapansin ko na seryoso siya.
“What do you mean?”
“Baby, this has 200 calories.” She gave me a pointed look. I didn’t cared much, tawagin ba naman nya akong baby. Heaven!
Then she indicated the popcorn that was on my lap. “And that has to have at least 650 calories, 800 at most, and enough butter to put on at least 50 slices of bread!”
“Oh, c’mon, baby. It won’t kill you.”
“Narinig mo ba ang sinabi ko? Tataba ako dyan!”
“What? You have curves in the right places.” Woah. Was that too much honesty? Her reaction was priceless. Didn’t know a Danny Ricardo could afford blushing.
A deep breath escaped her inviting lips. “Are you always like this?”
“Look, Art, you’re wonderful. Surprisingly you are! But please if you aren’t your player self, stop treating me special. Pwede namang —- ”
“I wanted to make you feel special, Danny, since you’re special to me.” I cut her sentence off. I put a hand over her lap. “Please allow me to be your man, and not just your boyfriend. At sana last mo na ‘to for reminding me that what we have now is temporary.”
I noticed how her mouth parted, and how her eyes searched my sincerity. She then set the popcorn down on the floor and proceeded to lean over. My heart stopped in the most thrilling way.
She looked up to me and pressed her lips to mine. At first, it was a feather of a touch that tickled my mouth. Slowly, she pressed her lips more firmly; I smiled into the kiss.
Now, tell me, Danny, pa’no kita papakawalan?
“I think people expect too much from love today,” Bigla niya sabi while watching a couple who was making a scene four feet away from us.
“Expectation ng iba magiging perfect lahat. That every moment should be a bliss.”
“That’s TV or movies. Sooo not in reality.” I said in agreement.
“Alam mo the trick is when things aren’t so great, you don’t junk the whole thing. It’s okay to have an argument. It’s okay that the other one nudges you a little, bothers you a little. It’s part of loving someone.”
“Couldn’t agree more!”
“But the joy and pain you get from trying to settle your argument,” I turned to him and saw his glow and smile. “from holding onto that person kasi alam mo sa kanya ka lang magiging buo at masaya… is a blessing. And people forget that.”
I carefully wiped a tear or two from my eyes as he gazed on the children playing in the street. Now, that was a revelation. Art, showing his deeper side to me, was overwhelming. May puso din pala siya.
“What?” He asked. Oopsie nag-enjoy ata ang mata ko sa kagwapuhan niya.
“Oh, tinitignan lang kita. Is there something wrong with that?”
He leaned down and touched my forehead. “No, you just looked at me strangely for some reason. May sakit ka ba?”
I removed his hand and bit his thumb. “Ouch!”
“Haha masakit ba?” I gently kissed his finger. “Yan. Pain all gone.”
“Baby, masakit din ‘to oh.” Pacute niya, pointing on his pouted lips.
As much as ayaw kong patulan kapilyuhan niya, but hey we only got few hours left so might as well gawin ko. I cupped his face gently in my hands, holding it in place. His breath hitched in my lungs as I leaned in to drop a soft kiss on his lips. I then felt my heart in my throat, beating at full speed.
“Wait.” I restrained him, raising my right arm against his chest. Art moved slightly back, staring deep into my eyes. “You’ll be the death of me. I swear it. It was supposed to be me kissing you, and a smack for that matter. Ba’t agaw eksena lips mo? Ano gutom lang?”
His reply? Was a hearty loud laugh. Sa sobrang tawa niya, his eyes had water.
“So, tatawanan mo lang ako for the last hours?”
It showed through the quick change of his mood. My last words hurt him. And so was I.
I shook my head, and looked straight into her eyes. “Stay beside me. Don’t say a thing. Nor kiss me. Just stay.”
Tinignan niya ako, with tears filling in her eyes and running down in her face. “And no crying too.”
She tried her best to smile, yet tears kept on ruining it for her. “That doesn’t look like a happy face, maybe I could cheer you up a bit.”
Her hair had somehow escaped the bun it was in and fell in his arms. “You can dance, right?”
She grabbed my hand and pulled me to the center of the park. Then, she started singing random songs which wasn’t familiar to my senses, and danced her heart out. Looking at her was breathtaking. Pinandilatan niya ako ng mata kaya wala akong nagawa kung hindi sabayan siya sa pagsayaw. Dancing with her, with the moon above us and the crowd watching us, was magical. It was pure bliss.
As the time drew closer for us to end the deal, I couldn’t help but feel more and more desperate to hold her. To keep her. Repeatedly she scanned her home, The Shots, from this safe distance. Her eyes stopped and fell deep into my eyes.
“Last two minutes.”
Alam ko. “Really? That fast?” The in denial me.
She nodded and looked at her shoes trying to hide whatever emotions she had at the moment. One last hug before this end was all I wanted to give her. It was the safest to do since I knew I couldn’t let go of her if I push a kiss between our goodbyes.
I took her hand, laying it flat on my chest. “If someday this heart will have the courage to fight its right to love you, will you promise to give it another chance? And by that time, hindi na pang one day lang?”
My heart beat firmly under her hand; her pulse was pounding so hard that I could barely think straight. “Ilang days ba? Or months?”
“And forever. A year and forever with you, Danny…. that’s what my heart will be offering to you in the coming years.”
Her lips trembled as she was trying to utter something. “Wh— why not now? Bakit di ba pwede ngayon ang offer?”
Closing my eyes, I took a deep, steadying breath, and then another as I tried to clear my mind, to absorb what she was saying. I held her hand tightly on my chest.
“This time isn’t for us. We’ll be unfair for each other if ipipilit natin ‘to. Oh, God.”
I cupped her face when tears were flowing like water down her eyes. I wipe it through my thumb. “Danny. Ssshhh. Don’t make this hard for us please.”
“A-art” Her sobs were cut my heart in two. Seeing her in pain was too hard to witness.
Di ko na nakayanan, I pulled her into a hug. She held into me like a baby, crying for mercy and love. My eyes were closed, her face pressed against the warm of my chest. For a moment there was just the softness of our breathing—then all at once it washed over me in a great wave when our phones alarmed in unison.
The game was over. And neither of us won.
She opened her eyes. I was still holding her hand to my chest, watching her, her expression more serious than I’d ever seen it. Unable to speak.
Stroking her hair from her face, I kissed her forehead slowly. “See you soon, Danny.” I whispered.
She nodded, and gave out a generous smile. Danny was studying my face as if she was painting me in her mind, I could tell. Then she extended her hand out. “Till we meet again, Art.”
Instead of shaking her hand, I grabbed it and pulled her for another embrace. For the last time.
“Till we fall in love again, baby.”
Sounds of doors opening and closing, luggage carts wheeling and car sputtering woke me up in the pre-dawn hours of the morning. He was leaving. Again.
I pulled myself out of bed and moved to a different room so I could watch from a better vantage point. I always stood to watch he leave. Whether I was comforted by their departure or merely curious was anyone’s guess.
"Looking for someone?" I nearly jumped out of her skin as I turned to look at him, holding my heart from breaching its captivity.
"Hasn’t anyone ever told you not to scare a sleepy person?"
The light spilling from the hallway made him an unreadable silhouette. I had a sense he was smirking, taking the usual pleasure in her rattled composure. “Then the sleepy person should be in bed. What are you doing?”
"Watching you go." I crossed my arms and watched him approach. He waxed from the shadows, his sharp features softened by the dying moon and lamp light outside. He stopped a foot in front of me, hands moving to my shoulders then down to my elbows.
"Come with me."
My eyes blinked a few times, my bed calling me with a still soft voice. So persuasive was it that I ignored his hands on my skin for now. “Thank you, but I can’t.”
A frustrated exhale, “I don’t see why not.”
"Don’t worry about me," I held up a finger when he opened his mouth to object. "I’m sorry for snapping at you last night. Malaki na ako, dad."
He was still and quiet, withdrawing his hands to cross his arms though he drummed some fingers against his cheek. I crooked a brow, “What’s so amusing?”
"Parang di ikaw ang anak ko?"
I yawned. “You better go. Late ka na sa flight mo.”
He chuckled and dropped his hands to his pockets, “If you’re certain this is what you want.”
"I’m not certain this is what I want. I just know this is how things will happen." The room was quiet after that as I looked out the window at the car that waited for him.
What I wanted…Now that was a laughable concept. Ano ba gusto ko? Graduate na ako, I recently ended my 3 year relationship with Phil, and I put my own business, just to taste first hand freedom. Pero ngayon na malaya na ako, ba’t biglang naaalala ko siya. That one person who changed my life in one day. The man who taught me how to love.
I sighed. “Nasa’n ka na Arthur J?”
Haha totally forgot nandito pa pala si daddy. “No one, dad. Just a beautiful memory of my past.”
Ever since bumalik ako sa Pilipinas, I had been chasing our moment together round and round in my head with absolutely no end in sight. What the hell happened? That image of wretched pain over Danny’s face etched itself into my mind, and I couldn’t help the falter in my heart.
“Art, may pumunta daw dito sabi ni manang no’ng araw ng alis mo papuntang Amerika.”
“Huh? Sino daw?”
“Ano nga ba pangalan no’n, teka… hmmm ayon! Danny.”
“Danny? She went here? Ano sabi?”
“Ewan. Di na ako nagtanong kay manang kasi nagmoment din ako pagdating ko sa bahay. Iniwan mo kasi ako. Pati yong Danny iniwan mo. Ganda pa naman daw sabi ni manang.”
I had no idea she cared about me that much. The deal was over two days before I left. Bakit pa siya pumunta ng bahay? After all the pain she already had resting on her shoulders, I only added more after the stunt I tried to pull on that one day deal.
But what else was I supposed to do? It wasn’t as if I could confess my true feelings to Danny. Sa kanya na mismo nanggaling, bawal siyang mahalin.
Sighing, I dropped my pencil and leaned back in my chair, completely fed up with having to sit through this thoughts. I hadn’t been able to focus simula ng dumating ako dito. Suddenly, my phone gave a sharp buzz in my pocket, and I fished it out to silent it without looking who was calling.
mS. G’s POV
While trying my best to decline calls from creepy strangers, I overheard someone cleared his throat. Deadma.
He cleared his throat again, this time it had that listen-to-me factor. So, I looked up at him and he was staring to the beautiful lady beside me on the bar. Eh bingi ‘to minsan si Danny kaya I didn’t bother to call her attention. What I did was turned her stool to his direction. Ta-da! Now, they were facing each other.
"Can I buy you a drink?"
"If you insist. One bottle of gin under that denim shirt please."
He leaned in closer and made his voice sexy as ever. “Sorry to disappoint you gorgeous,” he unbuttoned his shirt, revealing a teasing sight of his chiseled chest, “but no gin tonight.”
She gave her a confused look, pero tumawa naman ‘to. Hala baliw lang? O kinikilig?
"Impressive. Enticing. Mouth watering. And I can give as much adjectives for that act playa’, but I’m a smarter ass now. So, no skin till he come back."
Oh! She winked at him and he loved it. How did I know? Well, sakin na lang yon. Haha
Mas lumapit pa siya kay Danny. How lapit is lapit? Itanong natin sa pinky length of distance between him and her. That close. That intimate. That nakaka-OP position of them!
His fingers slowly traced her equally tempting face, down to her neck, stopping to her sexy collarbone. “Are you seeing anyone romantically?” He inquired.
"No, I’m not." She replied.
"Good because…" his other hand traced a careless line down her sides to her waist, his eyes never left hers. “I intend to ask you to….”
He then traced the outline of her full nude lips. “To be your girlfriend?” She asked against his long fingers.
"To marry me.” He corrected her.
Oh, kasalan na. New client!
Salamat sa lahat, friends. :) Farewell.
- mS. G
Skinny Love’s Finale pt.2 will be up lateeeer. Tara! Let’s jam first before I bid farewell. :)
Skinny Love: I love you 2 (4/4) FINALE pt.1
“I love you, boyfriend.”
“You love me?” He asked me in a heartbeat.
“You’re not that lucky as you think. So please.” I rolled my eyes while he smirked. More lies to come, Danny.
“So, what’s your plan? Ano una natin gagawin as a couple?”
Arthur studied his watch, “1:16 am,” he murmured, “Let’s sleep.”
Ano daw? No freaking way! “Okay. My place or yours?”
A sexy smirk slowly showed on his face. “My pad.”
The weird thing about silence was how cutting it can actually be. Slicing through the atmosphere like a scream in the dead of night, silence pierced the mind until your ears ring and the world becomes topsy-turvy. Time was non-existent as she observe our surroundings, and suddenly everything rang with a certain sense of clarity.
“Hoy!” Tapik ko sa balik niya. “Anything wrong?”
“Really?” I gave her that sardonic look.
“Yeah. I’m just checking out your place, and surprisingly it’s neat.” Her lie number two.
I crossed my arms across his chest, entire body language screaming I didn’t believe one word that left her mouth. “You’re standing outside that door for the past 20 minutes. Ako ba pinagloloko mo, Danika?”
She ignored my point, paninindigan pa ata niya. “My eyes have x-ray vision. It can tell even from afar.”
What was she thinking? Parang alam ko na. Naglakad siya palapit kay Danny sa may pinto.
“You don’t always have to be so brave. If natatakot ka, pwede mong sabihin.” I whispered, warm breath brushing a caress across her cheeks.
Ducking her head down in an attempt to get her hair to hide her embarrassment, a sob strangled out of her in a shudder that shook her entire body.
Before I knew what happened, niyakap ko na siya, took a seat on the couch, then plopped her down on my lap. She didn’t even question it; she allowed my arms to secure themselves around me. In that moment, I knew she needed so badly to be able to clutch onto someone.
“Wala akong masamang gagawin sa’yo, Danny. Don’t pressure yourself.”
She needed someone who was willing to smack idiotic thoughts of sex out of her head and tell her it was going to be okay.
“Sorry kung natakot kita. Dinala lang kita dito kasi we need a place to sleep. Sleep, baby, that’s all we’re gonna do.”
“Ssshhh…” She didn’t fight back. Good girl naman pala ‘to. I was stroking my head with steady hands whispering reassurances against her worried thoughts.
Gusto kong sabihin sa kanya lahat.. na ayaw ko siyang saktan… that I won’t take advantage of the situation, believe it or not!.. that I wasn’t the Arthur J she thought I was. Pero hindi eh dahil baka ‘pag binuksan ko ang sarili ko sa kanya, baka di ko na siya kayang pakawalan bukas.
After a while, she found herself speaking before she could clamp her mouth shut.
“I hate myself,” she choked out in between sobs, “I really, really hate myself.”
Suddenly, something scalding hot and wet was dripping down on the top of my head; Art had begun to cry with me.
“Me too.” At alam kong totoo yun, lahat naman ata kaming player ganun. He hated himself with every ounce of his being —- I could tell just by the raw sincerity filling out his voice and emptying out through his tears.
At 2:34 am: Two confessions, two mutilated hearts, and the echo of our cries ringing through the ghostly of his condo unit.
In the aftermath of our pouring confessions, on Art’s lap, I curled into his chest. His deft hands were buried in the waves of my hair, head resting against my own. As I concentrated on the pulsing vein of his – the soft brush of his breath against the nape of my neck—I felt as though some missing piece of the puzzle was clicking in place. His arms were ropes around me, tying me to this world when all I wanted was to float away.
Reluctantly, I pulled back from Art then to meet steady gazes with him. I released a dry laugh and wiped my make-up smeared face with the back of trembling hands.
"I’m sorry," I apologized, averting my eyes. "I know I look horrible."
Frowning, Art snatched up my hands, using his own gentle touch to wipe away the remnants of tears streaking my face. “You look beautiful. I love you, baby.”
My head drooped, heart faltering painfully as I remembered the reason why we were here in the first place. With a cringe, I said: “Don’t—don’t say that. It’s not right when you and Tanya….”
He rippled with tension beneath me. “What?”
"It’s no secret with the way you two act around each other," I replied almost bitterly. "Not to mention all the bragging Tanya does."
Binitawan niya ang kamay ko, at tinignan ako na para bang may kalokohan akong nasabi. Standing from his lap, I fixed my rumpled clothes while muttering, “Whatever. It doesn’t matter anyhow. Thanks for comforting me.”
My fingers reached for the lock, but strong, firm hands grappled around my waist and turned me back around. Sighing deeply, Art tugged me over so that I was straddling his lap. My fingers twitched to wind around his neck and feel the burn of his skin beneath my touch, but I resisted. As my hands curled into stiff fists, Art pressed me closer to him yet. His eyes were smoky with desire as they grazed the outline of my collarbone up to my neck. Almost trembling hands traced an ascent from my hips to rest gingerly in the curve of my waist, holding me as if I was ancient glass.
Quietly, we lay together for a long time – I had no idea how long, but it felt like a good half-hour or so passed – with him mounted atop me in a very intimate position. Yet, he made no move to take advantage of our awkward arrangement, except to get the strength in his elbows back to take some of the pressure off of my chest.
"Hindi mo naman siguro ‘to plinano?"
His sigh was deep, and when it blew across my shoulder, it caused goosebumps to travel up and down my skin. “Not consciously, no.”
With a flexing of his biceps and shoulders, he was able to lift himself up until we were nose-to-nose again.
He licked his lips and swallowed heavily. “I swear to you, Danny, wala akong gagawing masamang intensyon. Matutulog lang tayo. Promise.”
There was no lie in his eyes. “I… believe you,” I murmured, suddenly entranced by the lips that were only a breath away from hers. They were such nicely shaped lips, pillow soft and more than ample for kissing…
Ano naman ba naiisip ko? “Your charm is pouring over me? Pwede paki patay muna?” I asked politely, trying to keep it civil so long as he lay atop me in so dominating a position.
His brows lowered and his gaze shot to the side as he seemed to be internally considering something. Then he shook his head and looked back at me. “In born yan. A gift.”
As if realizing just then how intimate a position we were in, Art’s breathing slowed. We watched each other warily.
"Walang halong bola, Danny, ikaw na ang pinakamagandang naging girlfriend ko," he murmured distractedly, his fingers moving, twirling through my hair softly. "God, you are beautiful." He gave me a wry smile. "I’m excited to spend the entire day with you later."
He put two fingers over my lips as I made to protest. “I’d like to make this relationship to be as memorable as possible.” Quicker than I could track, he was off her and on his feet again, staring down at her. “As you are aware, one day deal lang ‘to.”
My anger returning at the implied threat, Danny sat up stiffly, not liking the vulnerability of being on her back before this man. “You’re threatening to rape me.”
Art didn’t move, forcing me to slip past to regain my feet.
“Bahala ka nga diyan. Tulog na ako.”
He turned in my direction laughing, tracking me, his hands shoved into his jeans pockets, as if he were trying to contain them from inappropriate action.
The sun was shining on my face, warmth spreading along my forehead, nose and cheeks. The color orange was all pervasive, and I decided that sunshine through closed lids while I basked in its warmth was my favorite color in the world.
The morning’s awakening brought with it a sense of strange quietness. Our bodies were still tied by the sensual intertwining of our legs. My head rested on his chest. The slow rhythmic beating of his heart played in my ears. Napangiti ako, kahit halos di ako nakatulog, still I didn’t feel exhausted. Siguro dahil excited na din ako what this day would bring.
I moved my head up at tinignan ko siya. It was him, my boyfriend for the day, Arthur J. Peaceful, his lips lightly curled by what was quite certainly a nice dream; whether sweet or of another kind, I couldn’t tell. Ano kaya panaginip nito? Kasama kaya ako?
I resisted the urge to kiss him, careful not to wake him up. Ngayon lang ata ako natuwa while watching someone sleep.
A smile touched the corners of his mouth in full, and those vibrant eyes roved over my face. “Good morning, baby.” And a peck on my lips.
“Are you ready?”
I held his face and bit his lower lip. “More than ready, handsome.”
"Admit it, that was fun," I argued as we walked along the eastern, lesser populated sandy beach, side by side. I brought her here after we had gone a safe distance from the restaurant. Ang boring kasi ng first choice ko. Dami pang matang nakatingin.
We both had our shoes in our hands, and the white, still-warm sand bunched between our toes as they slowly meandered down the shoreline. Pushing strands of wind-blown hair off her face, Danny laughed.
"Okay, I admit, but you were still a rotten fink to use your charm. The poor woman with the business card just stood there, waiting for you to notice her!”
I sneakily grabbed a hold of her hand and laced my fingers with hers. “Only had eyes for you, baby.”
"It’s the dress."
I shook my head at her claim. “It’s you.”
"I think, Danny, it’s always been you."
She sniffed in denial. “Art, how many women have you slept with? Seriously?”
Between one step and the next, I stopped. Tumigil ang mundo ko. “What kind of question is that?”
Removing her hand from mine, she continued forward without me, her bitter voice carrying back on the wind. “There have been dozens of women in your life. Alam naman ng buong daigdig yon. What’s the point of not answering it? Is it because you want me, or is it just the player in you wants me that bad? Laro lang ‘to, always remember that.”
I dropped my shoes, lunged forward and grabbed her, turning her to face me. “That’s not true! I…” I took her shoes from her hand and tossed them away, too, stepping into her private space in the same action.
"Danny, gusto na kita noon pa! You were my fi—-" I stopped that line of through and cleared his throat. "But you’d made it abundantly clear during that night that you’d never want me that way, so I gave up the idea." Very cautiously, I reached up and touched her chin, forcing her to meet my eyes. "This deal has given me a second chance though. Sure kahibangan lang natin ‘to, but… it’s not like I never wanted this anyway. This is just the kick in the bum I needed to move on that desire."
I leaned my face closer, angling to her lips. “Maniwala ka, baby, I need you…. and I want you at the same time.”
She closed her eyes. “I… have trouble believing you. My instincts scream at me not to trust you.” She nervously wet her lips, preparing for the kiss that she felt was to be forced upon her. “I know I made a bargain with you, but… the truth is you scare me. This day scares me.”
Slowly I moved those last inches to close the gap between us, pressing our foreheads together. “I want you above anything in this world, Danny. I have since the first moment I saw you. It’s always, only been you.” I kissed her very chastely on the corner of her lips, not quite a real kiss. “I can’t help my nature. I can’t help these feelings I have for you. And I can’t undo the past or the mistakes that any of us made. But I can love you now, my pretty baby, if you’ll let me.” I rubbed my nose against hers. “God, I ache for you, woman.”
Her quickened breaths against my face signified her heightened fear. “But I don’t ache for you,” she stubbornly denied.
The flash of hopelessness that accompanied her words was intense as my despaired. I pushed forward during this moment of weakness. “Baby, just kiss me.”
Her lashes fluttered to half-mast. “Art?”
I nodded. “Do you want to kiss me?”
Her attention dipped to my lips. “Ye—yes. But remember the deal.”
Pinaalala na naman niya. Bawal kang mahalin, oo Danny tanda ko.
I nodded. “I know,” ako na ata ang pinakasinungaling tao sa mundo, “may isang salita ako.”
She licked her lips again. “Okay.” she finally capitulated and let her lids float back down to await my kiss.
Our lips met, melted, and his heart beat into his throat, pulsing along the heated shared air between us. My hands roamed up his torso to wrap around his neck as I pressed my curves into his. We both moaned at the sensation of that kiss as we pulled apart and were persuasively drawn back together by an animal need for skin on skin, to delve deeper, to sip and lick and savor.
In mere moments, the greed became a consuming. He needed more… and more… and fuck all, more! Boldly, he slipped his tongue over my bottom lip, parted my mouth and tentatively stroked against my tongue.
Passion blazed out of control between us, dapat itigil na namin ‘to. “Oh, gods!” I whispered around kisses as we ravenously ate at each other’s mouths.
Somehow, we ended up on our knees in the sand, and then I was on my back and he was looming over me, lying atop me. Our lips never parted long enough to speak as we kissed away the years of misunderstandings. Clearly, we wanted each other. At alam ko di niya tanggap yon.
When the sea water coldly splashed against his toes, Arthur was jolted out of our romantic embrace. “We should go,” he murmured and shivered, bucking against my thigh when my fingers ran through his hair. “Danny, the tide’s coming in.”
He pulled away just long enough for my senses to return, and the desire to cool. I searched his features again. “Ba’t ka huminto?”
“We need to go.”
“Are you lying?” Again?
Then there was silence.
I seemed to carefully consider that. “Fine. Tara!”
"Did you enjoy it?"
Bigla akong nanlamig. Si Arthur J na talaga! “Thank you for that,” I murmured. “Yes, it was good.”
Turning into my hand, he placed a kiss upon my palm, and stared at me with a mischievous gaze. “Then, pwede natin ulitin? Like, now?”
I huffed in a laugh and lightly tapped him on the side of his dimpled face. “You’re a regular Casanova.” I shook her head, smiling. “No, pigilan mo kalandian mo. Get off of me before we end up underwater.”
"You’re no fun, baby!”
We both laughed as he helped me up from the sand. With that done, we collected our footwear, he held onto me and this time I was certain that I’d be lying for the entire day of not loving him… dahil sa totoo lang mahal ko na siya.
And it’s only 1:48 pm.
Finale. Not yet. I’ll talk longer on the second half of this chapter to be posted on Friday. Salamat! P.S. More waiting. More fun. Haha - mS. G
