"I might wanna fly like a paper plane but in the end, I'd still choose falling for you..."

Kabanata 1

Halos hindi ko maayos na napakinggan ang itinuturo ng guro dahil sa pagkaka-distract ko kay Ejercito.

I am thinking about the place where we'll go today, isa pa, bawat sulyap ko sa likuran ay parang nahihibang na ngingisi sa akin ang huli kapag nahuhuli ako kaya umiirap nalang ako.

"Mag-iingat kayo pauwi..." The professor told us before going out of the room. Sabay-sabay kaming nagsitayuan, kaagad kong hinagilap ang bag ko at taas-noong naglakad palabas pero nagulat ako nang may kumuha nito.

I shifted my gaze, only to find Ejercito holding my bag.
"What are you doing?" My forehead creased.

"Nothing," He flashed a boyish grin. "Tara kain tayo, libre kita..."

Ngumuso ako, ready to say yes but then a group of girls, that group earlier in the guidance office, walked infront of us.

"Ejercito, ayos ka lang ba?" Ani nung pinakamatangkad sa kanila. Maputi ito at balingkinitan.

She's almost the same height as Ejercito.

"Oo..." I saw Jer smiled.

"Ganun ba? Uh, gusto mo bang gamutin kita? May sugat ang labi mo..." Aniya sa malambing na tono.

My brows shot up when I saw her caressed Ejercito's arm, pretending to be worried. I don't know!

"Yeah, medyo masakit nga..." Jer answere playfully as he caressed his reddish lips and when I saw how the woman blushed and giggled, I rolled my eyes.

Mabilis kong hinila ang bag ko mula kay Ejercito, he was starled, I saw him panicking when I turned my back at him and started walking.

"Lena!" He screamed.

I did not listen, I remained staring at the center and smiling to those people greeting me.

"Harriet!" Sigaw nya pa ulit, mukhang nag-eeskandalo na.

"Uh, Lena?" I stopped on my tracks when I saw Winston infront of me.

Kaagad akong ngumiti, nakita ko naman na napakurap sya roon at pagkatapos ay nahihiyang ngumiti pabalik.

"Hello, bakit?" I asked.

"Uhm, gusto ko lang sanang tanungin kung nabasa mo na ang sulat..." Aniya.
"Uh, hindi pa..." I answered and blinked. "Pero nasa akin na, may klase kasi ako kaya hindi..."

"Ganun ba?" Nakita kong napahawak sya sa batok at ngumiti. "Uh, pasensya na, akala ko lang kasi nabasa--"

"Anong nabasa?" I almost jumped in shock when I heard Ejercito just beside me. Mabilis ko syang nilingon, nakita ko ang pagtataka sa mata nya habang tinitignan kaming dalawa.

"He gave me a letter, bakit?" My brows lifted. I saw his face darken a bit, I saw how his jaw clenched as he stared at me and shifted his gaze towards Winston.

"Bakit ka binigyan--"

"Winston, babasahin ko mamaya, huh?" Malumanay kong sabi sa huli at ngumiti.

I saw how Jer's lips formed a grim line, pinasadahan nya ang buhok nya at muling sumulyap kay Winston.

"Sige, aasahan ko 'yan..." Aniya.

"Salamat," I smiled a little, putting a small part of my hair at the back of my ear.

"Lena," I heard Jer said pero nanatili akong nakatingin kay Winston.

I smiled a little, nodded and find my may to the canteen.

Suminghap sya, I heard his hard, big footsteps at the back but I remained quiet.

"Lena..." Aniya ulit sa makulit na tono. "Kausapin mo naman ako..."

Hindi pa rin ako umiimik, hindi na rin ako nagulat nang maagaw nya muli sa akin ang bag ko at mabilis na humawak sa siko ko.

"What are you doing, Jer?" My forehead creased.

"Kausapin mo kasi ako..." He whinned like a kid.

"Hindi pa ba ako nakikipag-usap sa'yo sa lagay na 'to?" My brows shot up.

"No, I mean, talking to me, calm... Hindi 'yung nagagalit ka sakin..." Ngumuso sya.

"Am I mad? Mukha ba akong galit?" I flashed a smile at mas nangunot ang noo nya roon.

He licked his lower lip and cocked his head, ngumuso pa sya at nagulat ako nang pitikin nya ang noo ko.

"You!" I hissed quietly.

He tsk-ed and ruin my hair. "Don't give me that look, Leona, I want you smiling sincerely at me, okay?"

"E, sa ayoko nga e!" I groaned angrily and rolled my eyes. "E, bakit di ka nalang makisama sa mga babae mo roon sa itaas? They seemed to be very much attached to you!"

"I'm only attached to you," Parang wala lang na sabi nya.

My throat went dry, mabilis akong umayos ng tayo. I fixed my skirt and before he saw my blushing cheeks ay kaagad akong tumalikod sa kanya.

"Harriet..." He whinned.

Kinagat ko ang labi, dumiretso ako sa canteen at tahimik na naupo sa isang upuan roon.

Kaagad na sumalampak ng upo ang huli sa harapan ko. I saw him unbuttoning his suit kaya sinimangutan ko sya.

"Jer, bawal 'yan!" I whispered.

"What? It's hot..." He groaned and when he attempted removing it ay kaagad ko syang sinipa sa ilalim ng lamesa.

"Ouch!" Ngumiwi sya at tinignan ako. "Bakit nanaman?" Nguso nya.

"If the guidance saw you with that, ipapatawag ka nanaman! Kagagaling mo palang roon, Ejercito! Ano, balak mo na bang tumira doon?"

"Balak ko tumira sa bahay natin..." He said cooly.

Napaubo ako bigla, my eyes widen. I saw how his eyes screamed amusement kaya inirapan ko sya.

"H-H'wag mo akong igaya sa mga babae mo d'yan, Jer. Hindi tatalab sa akin 'yan..."

"Iba ka naman talaga..." Aniya. Napalingon ako sa kanya, I saw how he blinked at what he said and swiftly stood on his seat like he did not say anything.

"Anong kakainin mo? Bibilhan kita..." His blue eyes stared at me.

"Kahit ano... Uhm, h'wag na pala... I have to stay fit because my competition is coming..." I said, doing my best just to stare back at his intense gaze.

"Okay, 'yung manok lang gusto mo?" Pagbabalewala nya. "I'll also buy you cake and juice..."

"Ejercito!" I called.

"Sige, libre na kita..." Aniya at nakapamulsang naglakad roon sa gitna.

Nakamot ko ang ulo ko, sumulyap ako sa katawan ko at napailing.

Kaya ayoko minsan kasama ang lalaking 'to! He spoils me too much when it comes to food! Hindi kami namamasyal dalawa ng walang pagkain!

I saw him staring at the list of foods available, seryoso syang nakatitig roon habang nakapamulsa.

His lips lifted nang mukhang nakapili ng kakainin perp nagdalawang-isip pa.

Honestly, he looks handsome as he stood there in the middle. With just his hands on his pocket, the open buttons of his suit and slightly disheveled hair, he's an attention seeker without even knowing it.

Bulungan kaagad ang napansin ko habang nakatingin sa kanya ang mga estudyante sa canteen.
I know they adore him but sorry, mas malapit ako sa kanya so there's  no way!

Naglakad sya patungong counter, nakita kong kinausap nya ang babae roon na namula pa habang nakatitig sa asul nyang mga mata.

Pumahalumbaba ako, kung hindi ko ito kaibigan ay baka nabighani na rin ako pero kaibigan e, kaya ang panget nya...

I saw him get the tray from the counter, his strong arms held the tray gently yet he looks... I don't know, uhm, hot?

Napailing ako bigla nang mawala sa sarili at tinampal ang pisngi ko.

"Sshh, stop that..." Natigil ako sa istriktong boses nya at naupo sya sa harapan ko.

Halos manlaki naman ang mata ko nang makita ang in-order nyang mga pagkain.

"What, Jer? Hindi pa fiesta ngayon!" I exclaimed in horror.

"Edi magpi-pyesta tayong dalawa..." Ngumisi sya.

"No, I won't eat that! You know I have a shoot tomorrow!" I said.

"No, you will it whether you like it or not..." He said in finality.

"Pano nga kung ayaw ko? Jer, you see--"

"I see that you're really skinny so you gotta eat food, Leona Harriet." Mariing sabi nya at natikom ko ang bibig ko.

"But..."

"Ayaw mo? Sige, hindi na kita ililibre mamaya..." He said cooly and I sat properly in instant and get the spoon.

"Ito na, kakain na..." I answered and started eating.

He remained serious, I saw him watched me eat only a little at first at tumaas ang kilay nya. Mas nilakihan ko ang subo ko habang nakatingin sa kanya at nagsalita.

"Now, happy?"

He smiled cutely, his white teeth showed and licked his lower lip.

"Hmm, I like that... Aanhin mo ang pagmomodel ko kung magkakasakit ka?" Aniya at inabot sa akin ang juice at maliit na platito ng cake.

"There, eat more..." Aniya at pinunasan ang gilid ng labi ko.

We sneaked and skipped class, nasa may gilid kami ngayon nang pader at nag-aantay kung may daraan o wala.

"The guards are there, Lena..." Aniya. Bahagya akong sumilip sa may balikat nya at nagsalita.

"Ay, oo, nandun..." I pointed the guards.

Napalakas ang sabi ko kaya natigilan ang mga guards. My eyes widen, mabilis kong nilingon si Jer at napasinghap ako nang mabilis syang humawak sa balikat ko at tinulak ako ng bahagya sa pader.

"Jer!" I hissed.

"Sshh," Bulong nya. I stilled, marahang tinulak nya ako sa loob ng siksikang storage room at nagdikit ang katawan namin nang itago nya ako.

"What are you doing!" I hissed.

"Sshh," He hushed and pulled me closer.

"May mga bata dito e, tingnan mo nga roon at mapapagalitan tayo kapag may nakalusot..." My eyes widen when I heard voices.

Nanahimik kaming dalawa, I cal almost hear the sounds of our deep breaths and the quick pace of our hearts.

I smelled his familiar perfume, his arms are placed just above my head as he towered me.

Napalunok ako, bahagyang nag-angat ako ng tingin at nakitang nakaawang ang mapulang labi nya habang bahagyang nakatingala at nakikinig sa mga tao roon sa labas na pinaghahanap kami.

Suddenly, he lowered his head and my breathe hitched. Halos magwala ang puso ko sa kaba nang masalubong ko ang kanyang asul na mga mata.

I bit my lip, lumunok ako at nakita kung paano sumeryoso ang kanyang mukha at umigting ang panga habang nakatingin sa akin.

We stared at each other for no reason at all, me with my head tilted and him with his lowered gaze at me.

"Hindi na ako magugulat kung magustuhan mo na ako..." He blurted out.

I gasped. Napaayos ako ng tayo at mabilis na tinampal ang bibig nya at bigla syang napatawa roon at lumayo sa akin.

"That's disgusting!" I hissed. "N-Napatitig lang ako kasi ang panget mo!"

"Oh?" His eyes screams amusement and he brushed his hair with his fingers. "Is my Lena falling inlove with the handsome--"

"Oh, shut up, Sandejas!" I groaned frustatedly and blushed profusely.

He laughed, nang napalakas ang tawa nya ay tinakpan ko ang bibig nya at pinanlakihan sya ng mata.

"Mahuhuli tayo! Stop being childish!"

Mas natuwa sya, pilit nyang tinanggal ang kamay ko sa labi nya bago nangingising hinuli ang daliri ko at hinawakan.

"Hindi na, I was just kidding..." He chuckled and shook his head.

Ngumuso ako at sinamaan sya ng tingin at hinawi nya lang ang buhok sa noo ko at inilagay ang hibla sa likod ng tenga ko.

"Tara na, let's escape..." He said and grasped my hand. Wala sa sariling tinignan ko sya at nakitang nakasilip sya sa pintuan.

"Wala na, let's go..." He pulled my hand softly and we went out. Halos takbuhin na namin ang tagong lugar sa may unibersidad para makatakas at habang ginagawa namin iyon ay hindi ko pa rin maiwasang kabahan.

"Jer, I'm nervous..." I muttered.

"Hmm, trust me, we won't get caught..." Bulong nya at mas hinila ang kamay ko palapit sa kanya.

I saw him scanning the barrier and lets go of my hand. Sinundan ko sya roon at nakitang umakyat sya sa may upuan roon.

"Leona, I'll go at the other side first and you follow, alright? Sasagipin kita kapag nalaglag ka 'dun..." Aniya.

"Okay, but how can I go up there?" Turo ko sa itaas na bahagi.

"I'll help you, come here, Lena..." Aniya. I lifted my hand, kaagad naman nyang inalalayan ako paakyat roon at hinawakan ang baywang ko para makaupo sa itaas.

Pinagmasdan ko syang umakyat rin at tumabi sa akin at sabay kami sumulyap sa labas.

"Ang taas..." I murmured, scared.

"It's alright, ako mauuna..." Aniya sa akin.

Kadalasan kasi kapag tumatakas kami ay sa gate kami dumaraan kapag nasasaktuhang wala ang mga guard pero ngayon, bantay sarado so we have no choice.

"Kapag nakababa ako d'yan tapos hindi ako nakatay, edi safe ka din..." Aniya. I hissed, hinampas ko ang braso nya at napasigaw nang akmang malalaglag sya.

"Damn..."

"Jer!" I screamed.

Bigla syang umayos ng upo at tumawa. "Joke lang..."

"I hate you!" I groaned.

"Love you," Asar nya pa sa akin at kumindat at hinila ko ang buhok nya at sinabunutan sya habang tatawa-tawa sya roon.

"Hindi na!" He chuckled.

"Don't give the moves you're doing with your women, Sandejas!" Inis kong sigaw.

"Hindi naman ako ganun sa kanila..." He said seriously.

Edi, sa akin lang?

"J-Just..." I gulped. "Let's go..." I said.

Tumango sya, pinasadahan nya ng daliri ang buhok and I almost screamed when he jumped but faded when I saw how he smoothly landed on the ground.

Kaagad nya akong tiningala, nanlaki ang mata ko at umiling.

"How did you that?!" I exclaimed.

"May magic ako, tara, jump, Leona, I'll catch you..."

"H-Huh? But... Pano kapag hindi mo ako nasalo?" I started getting nervous. It's really high!

"I'll catch you no matter what it takes..." He said. "So, jump, Lena, come on... I promise you won't get hurt..."

I gulped, muli akong sumulyap sa ibaba sa kanya at kinagat ang labi ko.

"P-Promise?"

"Hmm," He smiled gently. "I promise..."

I took a deep breathe, inilaylay ko ang paa ko para makatalon at tumingala sya sa akin.

I saw how his eyes widen, napaiwas sya ng tingin at nakita kong namula sya at napaubo.

"Oh my God!" Umayos ako ng upo at sumigaw. "H'wag mo kong silipan!" I screamed.

"I'm not!" He coughed. "N-Nakita ko lang bigla..."

"Naninilip ka lang e! You...you..." I stuttered and blushed.

"Nandun sa itaas!" My eyes widen, napasinghap ako nang makitang tumatakbo palapit ang mga guard at bago pa man nila ako mahuli ay nagpatihulog ako.

I screamed, readying myself to fall flat on the ground but a strong pair of arms catched me.

Napamulat ako, ayun nalang ang pagkabog ng dibdib ko nang makitang halos magkalapit na ang mukha namin.

My heart flinched, my stomach started clenching and I saw how his eyes darken as he stare at me.

Tinampal ko ang mukha nya, mukha naman syang nagising roon at umayos ng tayo habang buhat ako.

"Ayun, may nakatakas!" I heard screams. I panicked, nilingon ko ang mga guard at 'yun nalang ang panlalaki ng mga mata ko nang tumakbo sila palapit.

I was in the verge of pushing Jer and run but he carried me, natulala ako nang iayos nya ako sa bisig nya bago kumaripas ng takbo habang buhat ako.

"Ejercito!" I screamed at the top of my lungs at napahagalpak sya ng tawa at mas inayos ako sa kanyang braso.

"Hold on to me, Lena! Mahuhulog ka!" Tawa nya at napayakap ako sa leeg nya sa takot at sumulyap sa mga guard na humahabol samin.

"Faster, Jer!" I screamed in panicked.

Mas bumilis ang takbo nya, pinagtitinginan kami pero wala akong pakialam at gusto lang na makatakas.

"Bumalik kayo dito!" The guard screamed.

Bigla na akong nasiyahan 'dun, I wrapped my arms more on his neck before looking at the guards and stucked my tongue out.

"Hulihin nyo muna kami!" I screamed.

"Bumalik kayo!"

I gasped when we fell, napamura ako nang malaglag ako sa lapag at napasapo nang noo nang makitang nadapa si Ejercito!

"What?!" I groaned and hissed.

"Oh, damn, I'm sorry!" He said in embarassment, his cheeks blushing profusely and caressed his hair frustatedly.

"Ayan na! Hulihin mo!"

Mabilis akong tumayo, pinagpag ko ang palda ko at mabilis na hinatak si Ejercito mula sa pagkakasalampak roon sa lapag.

"Are you gay? Let's run!" I hissed.

Mabilis syang tumayo at wala sa sariling tumakbo nang mabilis palayo.

"Ejercito!" I called him but he was running past me.

He left me! This man!

Hinihingal na ako, naririnig ko rin ang takbo ng dalawang guards roon at ang lalaking iyon na kaibigan ko raw na iniwanan ako!

"Jer! I will kill you when I get you!" Sigaw ko at mukhang natauhan sya na hindi nya ako kasabay at biglang napalingon at natigilan.

"Lena!" He panicked, bigla syang tumakbo pabalik sa akin habang hinihingal pa at tumalikod at bahagyang lumuhod roon, he offered me his back.

"Why did you left me--Ejercito, what do you think you're doing?!" I hissed when he pulled my hand towards his back.

"Ride me!" He exclaimed, I blinked.

"H-Huh?"

"Let's do piggyback!" Aniya at nang hindi ako gumalaw ay mas hinila nya ako kaya sumalampak ako sa likod nya at mabilis akong napahawak sa balikat nya nang hawakan nya ang hita ko bago tumakbo habang nakasampa ako sa likuran nya.
