Tatlong Araw

Someday We'll Know

More like tatlong buwan... from my last update. sorry naaaaaa

 

"Win?" Pagtawag pansin ni Ryujin sa kaibigan. Nakatulala na naman kasi si Winter habang nakadungaw sila sa labas.

"Tinatanong ni Ate Irene kung ano daw gusto mong lunch"

"Ha? Uhm. Kayo na bahala. I'm not hungry"

Napabuntong hininga na naman yung isa. It's been three days since yung nangyari at hindi pa din kumakaen ng maayos si Winter. If she does, sasabihin niyang busog na siya even after just three spoonfuls.

Karina was supposed to come home the following day after what happened but got cold feet and said she needs more time to ready herself to face Winter again.

Hindi pa ulit sila nagkakaroon ng any form of communication kaya naging messenger nila sina Ryujin at Yeji. Nabalitaan din ng iba pa nilang mga kaibigan ang nangyari. Gusto man nilang kamustahin ang dalawa, pero they chose to just get updates from the messengers instead.

"Hey bruh, may bago palang bukas na restau sa may Manda. Ayos yung menu nila. Gusto mo try natin mamaya?" Tanong ni Ryujin while looking at something on her phone.

Nang hindi sumagot agad si Winter, Ryujin just shrugged her shoulders and continued scanning the menu. Lowkey na natatakam sa photos ng pagkaen na nakikita.

"Pwede na ba natin sila sunduin?" Biglang tanong nito habang nakatulala pa din sa kawalan.

Natigil sa pagtingin sa phone niya si Ryujin at napangiti as she mentally did a fist pump sa sinabi ni Winter.

"D...do you want me to ask Yeji?"

Tumango si Winter kaya agad agad namang nag.message si Ryujin sa kanyang girlfriend.





Karina and Yeji were in the middle of watching a movie when she received the message. She was hesitant at first to ask Karina since for the last three days, bigla bigla na lang itong maiiyak at the mention of Winter.

"K?"

Without taking her eyes off the screen, she responded. "Hmm?"

"Ryujin was asking... well, she was asking kung pwede na ba daw nila tayo sunduin? Babe also wanted to check out this new restaurant in Mandaluyong and she said na, she wants the four of us to go"

At nangilid na nga ulit ang luha ni Karina pero pinilit niyang pinigilan.

Was three days already enough for her to be ready?

She wasn't sure.

She does know na the more na patagalin niya ito, the more na hindi sila magkakaayos. She had been beating herself up for what she did and her regrets were through the roof.

But for Winter making the first move, albeit, asking thru Ryujin proves na, she was just waiting for her to come home on her own.

"I... I think I'm ready na" Karina finally admits to herself na the past three days were wasted time when she could have just gone home the following day and fix what needed to be fixed.

Napangiti si Yeji as she gave her response.





"Yo, tonight's a go!" Masayang balita ni Ryujin.

Tipid man but Winter smiled.

They still have a few more hours bago ang muling pagkikita nila ni Karina at kahit hindi niya ipakita, sabik na sabik na siyang makita at makasama ulit ang taong pinakamamahal niya.

She's still hurting pero she knows na magiging maayos ulit siya once kasama na niya si Karina. It was cheesy just thinking about it but for Winter she knows that she's not whole if Karina is not with her.

During lunch, she had more than three spoonfuls and she was talking more din kaya naman tuwang tuwa ang mga kasama niya.

When they were done, mabilis na nagprisintang tumulong sa pagligpit si Ryujin kay Irene. Minsan lang din naman kasi nila makasama ang dalawang nakatatanda. Nang.asar naman silently si Winter at nakita pala ni Wendy kaya pabiro din niyang binantaan ito.

"How are you?" Tanong ni Wendy paglabas nila ng balcony. Ngayon lang din kasi talaga sila nakapag.usap ng sila lang.

"I'd be lying if I said I am totally fine cause I'm not. And please, don't ever blame yourself in this mess. You had nothing to do with it" Aalma na sana si Wendy. "I heard you that night ate. May fault din talaga ako nang hayaan kong gawin ni Ae yun. I mean, sinasabihan ko naman siya pero minsan kasi she catches me off guard. And the timing was really bad sa tuwing darating si Karina. Justified naman ang galit ni Karina especially when... you know what... Hindi ko lang talaga inexpect na she was still keeping it in despite all the times I explained my side. I hope you don't think badly of my jagi. I honestly think na her reaction was just natural"

Napangiti si Wendy sa sinabi ni Winter. "You really do love her, don't you?"

For the first time in three days, Winter showed a full genuine smile when she said, "More than words could ever express"





A few hours later, umuwi na din sina Wendy at Irene, Ryujin even scored a hug and kiss on the cheek from Ate Irene thanking her for being with her cousin. Kaya naman pagkasara ng pinto ay para siyang kitikiti sa kilig at hinayaan lang siya ng kaibigan.

Nagprepare na nga ang dalawa at mabilis lang nakapagbihis si Ryujin habang si Winter naman ay nakatulala lang sa harap ng closet.

"May balak ka bang magbihis? Kung g ka, pwede namang mag.pambahay ka lang" Asar ni Ryujin.

Napasimangot na naman si Winter at bumuntong hininga.

"She usually chooses what I would wear when we go out"

Lumapit si Ryujin at tinignan ang laman ng closet. Lowkey siyang nagulat sa sobrang pagka-organized nito... with matching labels. Napaisip tuloy siya ng shared closet nila ng kanyang girlfriend at kung gaano hindi ka.organize iyon.

She selected several shirts and pants and by pair niyang nilapit kay Winter.

"For now lang, hayaan mong ako na ang mamimili ng isusuot mo" sabi nito sabay abot ng isang white top and black pants kasama na din ang black and white na plaid polo. "Hindi naman kailangan formal ang get up natin dun so g na yan"

Nagsimula nang magbihis si Winter and while doing so, she realized na in just a span of three days, ang laki ng pinayat niya lalo dahil dati ay sakto ang fit ng mga damit na inabot sa kanya pero ngayon ay maluwag ng tignan sa kanya. She also had bags under her eyes and her lips were paler than usual. Kaya naman she applied some light make up to hide them.

When Ryujin received a message from Yeji na they're ready na, sinabihan na niya si Winter na mabilis naman nagtapos magayos at kinuha na ang bag.

They got to the parking lot at sumakay na kay Cruise para sunduin ang kanilang mga partners.





"Nahihilo na ako sa ginagawa mo Karina" reklamo ni Yeji sa palakad lakad niyang kaibigan.

"I'm nervous, okay!"

"I get that pero pwedeng umupo ka na lang?"

Sumunod naman si Karina. Ibinalik naman ni Yeji ang phone niya at mabilis nitong tinignan ang mga messages. Most of it were from their friends pero ang nagiisang message galing kay Winter lang ang kanyang binasa talaga.

It was short but had a big impact sa kanya. It said, "I can't wait to see you".

Lalong nabuhayan si Karina at na-excite sa muling pagkikita nila ni Winter.

 

 

 

 

 

At half past six in the evening, narinig nila ang pagkaluskos ng susi sa pinto at mabilis na tumakbo si Karina para sumalubong. Si Ryujin ang una niyang nakita na tinanguan lang siya at agad na ding pumasok para puntahan si Yeji.

"Babeeeee aymissshhhhdyoooooo" Sabi ni Ryujin habang mahigpit niyang niyakap si Yeji na hindi rin mapigilan na magpabuhat. Parehong natawa sina Karina at Winter sa itsura ng dalawa nilang kaibigan. Akala mo isang taong hindi nagkita.

While Karina was distracted, Winter let herself in and gently grabbed her fiance's face and kissed her. And as she did, she slowly put the ring back on her finger.

Short kiss lang talaga dapat ang gagawin ni Winter but then it progressed to them making out...by the open door...in front of their friends.

Nahiya na lang sina Ryujin at Yeji at parang ninjang lumabas ng sarili nilang apartment para maisara ang pinto.

Minutes later, when they both had to catch their breaths, tsaka na lang nila napansin na silang dalawa na lang ang nasa loob.

"I love you and I missed you my jagi" Sabi ni Winter while looking at Karina. "I'm really really sorry for what happened. I hope you can forgive me. You know I never meant to hurt you, right?"

Nangilid na naman ang luha ni Karina at naalala ang sinabi ni Ryujin and it proved her na mas kilala nga talaga niya si Winter.

"I...I should be the one apologizing. I overreacted. And I...I broke a lot of things. I shouldn't have left jagi. I also shouldn't thrown the ring back. I know I hurt you so much when I did that"

Winter's not going to lie. Among all the precious things that got broken that night, Karina throwing the ring back was the one that hurt her the most.

"But you have it back now jagi. Right where it belongs" sagot ni Winter sabay halik sa singsing. "And a week and a few more days from now, we'll be adding another one and I, get to call you my wife"

Naisip na naman ni Karina kung gaano siya kaswerte kay Winter.

"I'm sorry jagi. I'm really really really sorry"

Winter hugged Karina and felt her tears falling on her shoulders. She's a lot better now that she's with her and she knows that Karina feels the same.

"Okay na ba kayo jan?" Tanong ni Ryujin na sumilip sa pinto. "Mamaya na kayo mag-momol ulit. Nagugutom na kami" Sabay ngiti at sarado ulit ng pinto.

They bot let go of the hug and smiled at each other. Pinunasan muna ni Winter ang mga mata ni Karina at umisa pa ulit ng halik. Kinuha nadin niya ang luggage na dinala nito at lumabas na ng pinto.

"On behalf of my hungry girlfriend, we are sorry for ruining your moment earlier" Bungad ni Yeji pagpasok ng dalawa sa kotse. Inabot agad ni Winter ang seatbelt ni Karina at ni-lock bago gawin din sa sarili.

"No worries Yeji' Nakangiting sagot naman ni Winter.

 

 

 

 

They got to the restaurant on time at nakakuha din sila ng decent spot. They were given the menu and the four of them decided to order different options para naman daw masulit ang pag-try nila.

The other couple, Ryujin and Yeji can't help but watch silently as Winter and Karina stared at each other, both with smiles on their faces. As if they were talking through their minds as they nodded simultaneously. It wasn't until their food arrived that they stopped what they were doing.

"Yep we're still here" Ryujin joked earning her a nudge from Yeji.

"I gotta ask though. How do you tolerate this monkey?" Pang-asar na tanong ni Winter kay Yeji.

"Pag mahal mo, pagtitiisan mo" Mabilis na sagot nito.

Natigil sa pagpunas ng mga utensils ang pinaguusapan. "So pinagtitiisan mo lang talaga ako? Babe? Babe?"

Masyadong expressive ang mukha ni Ryujin na sa unang tingin ka lang maawa pero pag tumagal alam mong medyo o.a na ang reaction niya.

Hinawakan ni Yeji ang mukha ni Ryujin. "But no matter, I love you" sabay halik sa labi. Lumabas naman ang whisker dimples ni Ryujin pag-ngiti niya.

Nagsimula na silang kumaen at tinikman ang order ng bawat isa. Sulit naman din talaga ang lasa sa price nito. They stayed there for an hour before deciding to go to another impromptu road trip paakyat ng Tagaytay.





On the way ay minessage nila ang iba pang mga kaibigan kung gusto nilang sumama. Giselle and Ningning confirmed agad dahil nasa Tagaytay narin naman talaga sila while Lia and Yuna said na susunod din sila. Chaeryeong declined dahil out of town sila ng family niya.

Pagdating nila sa rest house ng mga Kim's ay nagsettle muna sila sa sala. Matagal tagal na ding hindi ito nagagamit dahil busy na din ang mga kapamilya ni Winter sa kani-kanilang buhay pero well maintained pa din dahil may naglilinis nito every two weeks.

"Tagal na nating hindi nagpunta dito bruh. Huli pa ata nung debut ni Ate Yeri" sabi ni Ryujin na kinuha agad ang remote ng tv at umupo na sa couch.

"We actually stayed here last year nung umuwi sina Ate Lisa and Ate Rosé with their baby from Australia" sagot naman ni Winter.

"Yun yung pinsan ni Karina na parehas mukhang model di ba?" Tanong ulit ni Ryujin. May halong excitement sa tono.

"Ano yun babe?" Tanong naman ni Yeji.

Natawa naman ang mga kasama.

"Strike 2 for Shin" bulong naman ni Karina.

Maya maya lang ay may narinig silang sasakyan at sinalubong na nila ang dalawa nilang kaibigan.

"Besssssssss!" Malakas na sabi ni Ningning nang makita si Karina.

Hindi rin nagtagal ay dumating naman sina Lia at Yuna.





Magkakape lang talaga ang balak nila pag dating ng iba kaso ang kape ay naging alak nang wala silang mapuntahan na walang waiting time since Saturday night na din yun.

Kaya nakapalibot na sila sa table sa back garden at nagbubukas na ng whiskey si Ryujin.

"Chillnuman ba ito?" Tanong ni Lia na nakatingin sa mga bote na nakalinya sa table.

"Hindi naman required lahat buksan tonight. Pwede naman next time" sagot naman ni Giselle.

Nang mabigyan na lahat ng baso ay nagsimula na ang proper inuman.

Nasabihan na din nila Yeji ang iba na as much as possible huwag sisimulan ang topic about sa nangyari unless sila Winter at Karina mismo ang nag-open up about it. At since ngayon lang sila ulit nagkita-kita ay nagkwentuhan na lang about sa mga ganap sa life nila.





"So when we got out of the airport, I was really set on practicing my Korean while riding the cab and going around the city. Little did we know na aside sa pagsstay sa house nila Winter eh may kasama pang chauffeur who actually speaks English!" Kwento ni Ryujin two whiskey bottles in.

"Why do you make it sound like it's a bad thing?" Tanong naman ni Yuna sa pinsan.

"Oo nga" dagdag naman ni Lia.

"My point is, I wanted to experience kasi yung mga nasa korean drama na mag.eexplore and such"

"But we did go to a lot of places babe" entry naman ni Yeji na hindi rin magets yung pinupunto ng girlfriend.

"Ewan ko sa inyo!" Ryujin finally said, giving up on what she was trying to say.

"A thank you would be a good start Ryu. Dami mong pang sinasabi jan" sabi naman ni Giselle.

They took a break before opening the third bottle. Lia and Ningning cleaned up their trash while Yeji and Karina cooked some pulutan. The Shin cousins vaped in the corner while Winter and Giselle stayed seated.

"You guys good?"

"Yes we are. I mean, we plan to still have a deep conversation about it but we're good."

"Personally, I was shocked to know about what happened and we were told not to ask anything but you know me. I'm just glad now that you guys are okay"

"This is just something we had to experience Gi. There is nothing that would stop us from being together."

"You're my best friend Winter and I know you would not intentionally hurt Karina by being with another girl. I would even help her hunt you down if you ever do that. And you know as well that I ain't joking."

"Chill Gi. That's not going to happen"

Pabiro pang minasamaan ng tingin ni Giselle si Winter bago tumango.

Bumalik na sa table ang iba nang lumabas na from the kitchen sina Yeji and Karina with the food at sinimulan na nga ang pangatlong bote.





"Oo nga pala guys... may sasabihin ako... well…"

Biglang sabi ni Yuna in the middle of their tawanan cause of something Ningning said. Lahat napatingin sa direksyon ng nagsalita.

"Ano na? Sasabihin mo lang na kayo na ni Lia pa-suspense pa" sabi naman ni Ryujin sabay kindat sa ex crush niya.

Nanlaki ang mata ng lahat miski yung may dapat sasabihin sa revelation.

"What the? Paano mo nalaman?" Tanong ni Lia.

"Secrettttt" asar pa nito.

So napakwento na nga ang dalawa kung paano naging sila.





Fake news ang chillnuman dahil naubos din nila ang anim na boteng nakalinya kanina. Lumipat na kasi sila sa sala at nakatulog na nga sa couch ang iba. Winter and Karina were still up along with Ryujin and Yuna na nagbukas pa nga ng isa pang bote na binili nila sa malapit na convenience store.

"When do we leave for New York pala?" Tanong ni Ryujin na halata namang pinipilit nalang buksan ang mata.

"Next Sunday pa bruh" sagot naman ni Winter.

"So we definitely need a bachelorette party, right?"

"Yes. I hope nakapag-file na kayo ng mga leaves niyo"

"We work for the family business bruh. Siyempre walang problema kina dad yun"

May sasabihin pa sana si Ryujin kaso nakatulog na din ito sa upuan kaya naman nagtulungan silang tatlo para maihiga ng maayos ito sa couch. Nagpaalam na din si Yuna at hinanap na siya ni Lia.

Nang maiwan sina Winter at Karina, nagayos na muna sila ng mga kalat, freshened up before climbing to bed.





When they got back to their condo later that day, Karina immediately looked around and started to feel guilty again as she noticed that it was a bit different from how she left it. Different in a way that there were certain things not there anymore.

But before she was consumed by what she was feeling it was immediately replaced by calmness as Winter was already back-hugging her.

"I know what you're thinking jagi"

Humarap si Karina para mas mayakap niya ng maayos si Winter. Naghahalo man ang nararamdaman niya pero mas higit pa din dito ang kasiyahan now that she is with Winter, her home.

They stayed in that position until a call interrupted their moment. Sabay pa silang kumuha ng phones sa back pockets nila.

"Hello?" Winter said as she answered.

Hindi naman kumalas sa pagkakayakap si Winter at ni.loud speaker pa nga niya ito.

"Hey. I just wanted to call to say I'm sorry"

Slight na nag loosen ang paghawak ni Karina when she heard the voice. Pero mas hinigpitan lang ni Winter ang kapit niya.

"Can we meet?"

"There's nothing to talk about Ae. I think it's best for you to talk to Producer Wendy" saad ni Winter bago niya tinapos ang tawag. Tumingin siya kay Karina at humalik.

Dinala na nila sa room ang gamit ni Karina at sabay silang nag.shower. For pagtitipid purposes daw.





Make up is one of the best daw kaya eto silang dalawa at hingal na hingal sa activities nila in and out of the shower.

"Jagi, nagugutom na ako" sabi ni Winter.

Natawa naman si Karina. "Kanina ka pa kaya kumakaen"

Nagiba na naman ang tingin ni Winter kay Karina at pumatong ulit.

"I thought you were hungry?" Pangasar ni Karina.

"I changed my mind. I want more of you" Winter said with a very dominating voice at sino ba naman si Karina to not submit.





A few days later, they're on their way sa private hangar ng tito ni Winter dahil siya ang maghahatid sa kanila papuntang New York.

Sa isang gilid, may ginagawang video sila Giselle at Ningning. May nakita kasi silang tiktok video kung saan ichecheck nila kung what time darating ang mga friends nila. Call time daw kasi ay 10PM.

Exempted siyempre ang engaged couple kahit sila ang pinaka.huling nagpakita. Well, in reality, sila ang pinaka.unang dumating pero may kababalaghan munang nangyari sa loob ni Cruise.

Hindi na lang nila pinansin ang mga marka sa leeg ni Karina.

"Are we all set?" Tanong ni Tito Marcus paglabas ng office niya.

"Yes po tito"

At pumasok na nga sila sa private jet ng tito ni Winter while the staff placed their luggages sa lower deck ng plane.

The jet was definitely big enough for them kaya naman after take off at natanggal na ang seatbelt sign ay gumala na sila sa loob ng jet.

There were a few stewardess na nag.assist sa kanila at nilubos lubos naman nila ang food at drinks na sineserve sa kanila.

Hinayaan na lang nila ang mga kaibigan na magenjoy sa mini party na nagaganap at tumakas na ang dalawa sa loob ng master's bedroom at ni.lock ang pinto. Naglagay pa nga ng 'Do Not Disturb' sign si Winter.

"Are we not going to join our friends?" tanong ni Karina paglapit niya sa bed.

Nagtatanggal na ng damit si Winter at natigilan siya. "Do you want to join them... or would you rather join me instead?"

Malagkit ang tingin ni Winter kay Karina and this time ayaw niya magpatalo. She stood up and ped her dress bago hinila si Winter palapit sa kanya at tinulak sa kama. She slowly removed Winter's pants bago siya pumatong dito.

"Come to think of it, we haven't done it inside a plane" saad ni Karina bago niya sinimulang halikan si Winter.





Two bottles of champagne in nang mapansin nilang wala ang dalawang kaibigan kaya naman pasuray suray na naglakad si Ningning papunta sa room. When she saw the sign on the door ay bumalik siya sa ibang kaibigan.

"Napaka naman talaga nung dalawang iyon. May pa do not disturb pang nalalaman. Alam naman natin ginagawa nila"

"Hayaan mo na sila babe. After tomorrow, hindi naman sila makakapagkita until their wedding" sagot naman sa kanya ni Giselle.

Nakaisip naman ng ideya si Ryujin kaya kinuntsyaba niya ang isang stewardess gamit ang kanyang charms at nakuha ang susi ng kwarto.

Nakasunod naman sa kanya ang mga kaibigan at dahan dahan niyang isinuksok ang susi.

Malakas din kasi ang music na pinapatugtog nila kaya hindi nila marinig ang nasa loob kaya naman instead na dahan dahan niyang bubuksan as planned eh binigla niya ito at lahat napasinghap sa kanilang nakita.





"Ay tulog? Corny naman" biglang sabi ni Lia.

In front of them were Winter spooning Karina who were both covered with a blanket, sleeping peacefully.
