#CollisionWakas"Where have you been?" Ian asked, the tip of his cigarette was lit.Amoy ko angbahongsigarilyoatngumuso. Sabi ko nangtumigilsiya sapaninigarilyoe.Masamasa baga.Mackydoesn't allow me to smoke because my voice will be affected, and it's bad publicity. Either way, bad publicity is still publicity. There will be potential profit from the attention people will give me.I didn't answer Ian's question. All I know is that I want to see Rosie. She's been busy lately. Ang hirap na law student siya at artista ako. It's
#CollisionKab19"Austin..." I unconsciously slurred. I woke up, feeling dizzy. Medyo umaalon pa ang paningin ko."Rosie! Thank God!" sabi ni Nic. Worry filled his eyes as he held my hand. He looked at me, a flash of misery reflected on his eyes. Medyo namumula ang mga mata niya ngayon.What...what happened?Kita ko'y nakahiga ako sa isang kama, nakasuot ng hospital gown. Nasa ospital ba talaga ako? Anong nangyari? Pagtingin ko sa aking kamay, may naka-kabit na wiring of some sort. Pati sa ilong ko. I scrunched up my nose, feeling uncomfortable. There's something attached on my index finger too."What happened?" I choked out. Napapaos pa ang boses ko. Kumuha si Nic ng
#CollisionKab18Tahimik ako habang nagfi-fitting. Medyo sumikip na sa akin ang pinili kong gown. Ina-adjust ng tailor ang aking damit sa pamamagitan ng paglagay ng pins. Natutusok ako ng kaunti ngunit hindi ko madama ang sakit.Austin's words keep playing like a broken record at the back of my mind."Because the girl I love is getting married."Did Nic invite him?I decided to text our wedding planner about it.Rosie: Hi! Can you send me the list of guests for the wedding?Tumunog ang phone ko at nakitang may PDF file na sinend. Agad kong binuksan
#CollisionKab17"Ro-I mean, Atty. Mercado," Macky choked out, eyes slightly widening as my heels clicked the floor. I tried to keep my face void of any emotion.Ipakita mong matapang ka, Rosie."I suggest you make an appointment first, Mr. Andrada." sabi ko sa kanya. Sinulyapan ko si Austin na bahagyang nakatitig sa kaliwang kamay ko. That's where my engagement ring is placed. Agad siyang nag-iwas ng tingin. His jaw clenched, fists resting on his forehead while sitting on a chair. Nagtagis-bagang ako.Tanaw kong nakatayo malapit sa kanya si Johnson at Ian. Naka-krus ang braso ni Ian habang tumitig sa akin at nakapamaywang naman si Johnson habang may tinitingnan sa cellphone. Ilang beses kaming na-orient sa da
#CollisionKab16"Are you happy?"Nic wrapped his arms around me as we sat in a bench near the Eiffel Tower. He held my hands and looked at our engagement rings.It's been 4 years. I'm already 26, already a lawyer. I have a fiancé who loves me more than I love myself. I'm about to settle down. Something that Austin could never let me have.He never explained himself.He just kept on saying sorry.And I hated that.I hated him so much.We were walking around the streets of Paris, the cold weather made me shiv
#CollisionKab15Nakakunot ang noo ko habang tinitingnan ang showbiz article mula sa isang magazine site.Ausnee: The COMEBACK you've been waiting for!Yesterday, the power couple was spotted at Ayala Triangle, Public Display of Affection clearly evident!The pictures below seem to make us speechless!Source: Retromag PHParang pinipiga ang puso ko habang tiningnan ang mga litrato sa aking cellphone screen. Magkahawak ang kamay nila. They look happy.But I know this is all fake.
#CollisionKab14"Who's Renee?"I was scrolling through my phone when I remembered the article I read last time. Naisipan kong mag-Google ulit tungkol kay Renee at Austin. A few articles popped up, dating two years ago."Renee? Renee Saragosa?" his brows quirked up. Tumango ako at niliitan siya ng mata.Austin and I were waiting for our order in an Italian restaurant here in Makati. Lunch break ko at tinext ko siya upang magkita kami. Gusto sana namin sa BGC kaso malayo at baka ma-late pa si Austin sa kanyang interview. Medyo marami kasi siyang fans na nagpapapicture 'pag lumalabas kami sa dito sa Makati. Lumalayo na lang ako 'pag may lalapit sa kanya. Ayokong makaabala.
#CollisionKab13Austin and I flew back to Manila the night on our third day. We just ate and enjoyed the waters. Nag sight-seeing din kami kasama ang isang tour guide. Ayaw kong magka-misunderstanding ulit si Macky at Austin kaya pinilit ko siyang huwag magpost ng pictures. He hesitated at first, pero bumigay rin sa gusto ko. Para na rin iyon sa ikabubuti niya kasi.Napapasyahan kong dalhin siya sa bahay sa araw pagkatapos ng aming pagbalik. Gusto ko muna siyang ipakilala kay Manang bago tuluyang ipakilala kay Mom and Dad. Alam kong wala pa sila sa bahay kaya ngayong week ko siya ipapasyal doon."Are you sure?" nag-aalangang tanong ni Austin. Gamit niya ang dalawang kamay sa pagmamaneho habang diretsahang nakatingin sa daan.
