Alam niyo ba, kausap ko kanina yung crush ko na si Clover Chips. I invited him to this little get-together I was having for my 27th birthday next week.
"Kelan siya uli?" Clover asked.
"My birthday's on the twelfth, pero sa 16th ang party," I answered, not looking him in the eye, kasi naiilang ako. Crush ko talaga tong hayop nato.
"Sunday? May shift ako, tsong," he answered, scratching his head, simultaneously looking dumb and irresistibly cute.
I scoffed, "Eh di sunod ka na lang after shift! Ito naman oh, minsan na nga lang ako mang-imbita eh..."
"I'll try pero no guarantees..." Clover Chips told me, looking shyly at me through his bangs.
Nagpa-cute naman ako. May pout effect pa ako na drama ako sa kaniya. He wasn't affected, though.
"Buquir naman, para namang ganoon ka-importante na andun ako sa party mo," he said, exasperated.
"Heller! Alam mo bang sobrang kaunti lang ininvite ko! Tapos iitsupwera mo pa yung invitation ko!" I said, "Tsaka gusto ko nandun ka talaga!"
Clover Chips looked incredulously at me, "At bakit naman kelangang nanduon ako?"
"Ha? Wala! Kasi friends tayo..." I replied, blushing.
He just looked at me, brushing back his hair with his hand, smiling that little smile he has, na parang pinipigilan niyang tumawa. Haaaaay...
This is it. Nahuhulog na naman ang loob ko sa isang straight guy. Oh Buquir, when will you ever learn?
