"Sino yan?" ang tanong sa akin ng ex-crush kong si Prince Chubby, nakaturo sa pic sa monitor ko.
"Si Emo-Boy," sagot ko naman, habang pinipisil ko ang chubby arms ni Prince Chubby. Kakagigil. Straight si Prince Chubby. Sayang. We could have had beautiful children. With his complexion and looks, combined with my, umm, my... my bubbly personality na lang...
"Ano naman ang tsismis tungkol sa kaniya?" asked Prince Chubby, shrugging away from my pinching fingers.
I smirked, "Ex-squeeze me! Hindi ito tsismis! Confirmed ito. Straight from the horse's mouth; or should I say, straight from the supervisor's ex-bestfriend, ahehehe."
Prince Chubby looked confused, in the process becoming cuter, "Supervisor si Emo-Boy?"
I wanted to poke his rotund belly pero pinigilan ko sarili ko, "Shunga! Agent si Emo-Boy. Naging dyowa niya ang isang semi-famous sup dito sa floor natin, whom we shall call Pakandong-Girl."
"Pakandong-Girl? Bakit ganun ang name niya?" he asked, laughing.
"Hay! Ang hilig kumandong ng lola mo! Kahit kanino daw! Kahit sa agent niya sa floor kumakandong sa harap ng maraming tao!" I said, "Sup pa naman siya!"
"Asus! Ang linis mo eh! Mas malala pa nga ikaw diyan eh!" Prince Chubby noted.
"Maybe. Pero I never said I was a virgin angel..." I replied, winking seductively at him.
He chose to ignore my wink, "By the way, bakit semi-famous si Pakandong-Girl?"
"Eh kasi, marami nang chismis tungkol sa girl sup na ito. The thing is, most people aren't interested in them because Pakandong-Girl just isn't that interesting a character," I explained, "She's bland, parang kape lang sa vending natin, kelangan mo pa haluan ng isang sachet para magkalasa."
"Hmmm... Anong tsismis?" he asked.
"Well, it's widely known sa floor na medyo weird ang taste niya sa guys. I mean, look at her track record," I answered, "She has a thing for geeks, methinks."
"Sila pa rin ni Emo-Boy hanggang ngayon?"
"I think Emo-boy has a new girlfriend, professional dancer daw," I said, "Si Pakandong Girl naman? She'll be sent to Cebu soon, I believe. She'll be doing some training there. Lipat na yata siya ng account eh. Siguro sa IT dep. God knows mas maraming geeks dun. Smorgasbord at buffet yun para sa kaniya."
"Sino naman ang source mo?" Prince Chubby asked, looking at me with an incredulous look on his face.
I was going to stroke his cheeks kaso umiwas siya. Shet. I said, "Di ba sabi ko nga! Yung ex-bestfriend niya. Bakit ex, you ask? Apparently, Pakandong Girl put the moves on her bestfriend's boyfriend. Geez. And people think I'm dirty."
