Minsan hanap tayo nang hanap ng "meant to be" natin. Lumingon pa tayo sa likod at sumulyap pa sa kaliwa at kanan... Yun pala, nandyan lang sya sa tabi mo...
"Hoy, Ms. Jelly Joy Joaquin! Alam na alam ko ang drama mong yan!" Someone threw a pillow at Jelly.
"Hey BF! Sorry I didn't notice you.. Kanina ka pa ba?" Jelly asked Vince as she covered her face with the pillow.
"Opo, kanina pa po kaya ako nakatayo dito di mo man lang ako napansin kase sigurado ako kung sino na naman ang nasa isip mo." Vince replied.
"Wala po akong iniisip..." Jelly denied.
"Let me try to guess... Does it start with letter J?" It sounded that he's starting to tease her.
"Yeah, of course I'm thinking about Jelly... I'm thinking about myself.." Jelly sarcastically said.
"Hoy Miss, stop fooling your bestfriend... Come here tumayo ka na dyan at mag-basketball na tayo!" Vince jumped into the bed and was about to pull Jelly's feet.
"Vince! Stop it! I'm still sleepy... " I started to kick him. "I don't want to stand up yet! I feel lazy today... Can you just ask Kuya to play with you since wala naman yata sila date ni Ate Paula today.." Jelly pleaded.
Jelly knows that he will push her to play with him since it will serve as his practice game before the University playoff next week. Vince usually wants to practice with Jelly before any game. Yes, Vince is a varsity player and Jelly always supports him with that since she also loves basketball.
"No way, you already promised me last night when I phoned you... So pag di ka tumayo dyan kikilitiin talaga kita!" Then he started tickling her.
"Stop it! Stop it!" Jelly yelled as she started to protect herself with a pillow and blanket.
They are just like little kids playing wrestling as she was kicking him while he was trying to tickle her.
"Kase naman ayaw pang tumayo e!" Vince chased Jelly so wala na itong nagawa kundi umupo na lang while leaning at the headboard.
"O ayan, stop it na nakaupo na ko!" Jelly yelled at him.
"What's the problem ba ng pinakamaganda kong bestfriend?" Sabay akbay kay Jelly.
"Pinakamaganda talaga kase wala ka naman ibang bestfriend kundi ako! Well, wala naman talaga akong problema. Ikaw problema ko now kase makulit ka!" She murmured as she hit him with her elbow.
"Ouch!" He exclaimed. "Ikaw kase e, nagpromise ka kasi sa kin.. Pero kung ayaw mo talaga mag-game ngayon okay lang sa kin basta dito na lang muna ako." He said as he touched Jelly's chin.
"Okay lang naman tayo mag-basketball today, kaya lang napuyat talaga ako kaya I still want to sleep..." She replied.
"Okay seryoso na ko.. Ano ba talagang nagyari?" He asked seriously.
"Okay, okay... It's Josh..." Jelly sighed.
"Sabi ko na nga ba e... But how about him? Nanliligaw na ba?" Curious na tanong ni Vince.
"Yun na nga e. Hindi pa... Ewan, naguguluhan na ko sa kanya..." Jelly answered.
"Baka naman naghahanap pa ng timing yun tao.." As he shrugged his shoulders.
"Timing??? What timing??? After 3 months of letting me feel special, naghahanap pa ng timing??? Hello Vince! Parang ikaw lang kase... Look at what you're doing to Alex! Umaasa yung tao malamang matagal na wala ka naman sinasabi... paasa talaga! Pare-pareho kayong mga boys talaga!" Jelly said as she's pinching his side.
"Ouch! Nakakadami ka na ha!" Kilitiin kita ulit dyan e!" He said as he's trying to tickle her knees again for he knows that Jelly is so ticklish on that part.
"O sige subukan mo isa pa!" She told him while trying to punch him but he was so fast that he just easily grabbed her hands.
Then he tried to make Jelly look at his eyes. "Miss Jelly Joy Joaquin, not all guys are like that. We probably have our own reasons why we can't tell something to someone so important to us. But it doesn't mean we don't love them." He said seriously.
"Okay, okay... " Trying now to avoid his eyes. "I get it now... Don't worry, I'm fine now. Thanks!" Then she kissed him on his forehead. "Let's play basketball now!
Then he stood up and said, "Then it's time for me to go out now! I know you still have to take a shower. Be sure you'll take a shower because you stink already! Hahaha!" He said as he pretended to cover his nose.
"Ewwwww! Of course not!!!" Jelly yelled as she threw the pillow to him. "Go out now! You bastard!"
"Hahaha! Pikon talaga! See you later stinky pooper! Bye!" Vince shouted as he ran through the door because he knows that Jelly will throw whatever she gets to him.
"I hate you!" Jelly yelled angrily.
Then Vince laughed harder.
Vince and Jelly are always like that since they were little. They keep on trying to bash each other and make each other cry in dismay. But that's what bestfriends are for. That's what makes their friendship even stronger.
