"I have kwento," a voice beside me whispered.
I was sitting alone awhile ago in my station in the trainers area, when this girl approached me.
I call her K.
K and I are close friends. Mahilig kasi kami pareho magbasa ng horror and fantasy books (madalas naming pag-awayan at pag-tawanan ang kalandian ni Bella sa Twilight).
"You have kwento?" I asked her as she pulled up a seat next to me.
K nodded, "Birthday ko na next week di ba?"
"And you know naman na I'm technically a virgin," she whispered, brushing back her hair behind her ear.
I nodded, na may kasamang ngiwi.
When K mentioned to me the first time na she was "technically" a virgin, I had asked her to expound.
Sabi niya, never pa raw siya nakatikim ng actual sex. Pero sabi rin niya, hindi ibig sabihin noon na hindi pa siya "nakakatikim" ng lalake.
One more clue: Starts with the letter "O", ends with the word "sex"?
Yun palang ang nagagawa niya. Well, at least yung ang sabi niya sa akin. I didn't ask her for the details since the thought of heterosexual sex hurts my stomach.
Anyways, lagi na lang nirereklamo sa akin ni K na since she is an adult (biologically, anyway. Mentally? She's a bit of a child), dapat mawala na ang kaniyang partial virginity.
Now don't get me wrong, hindi malandi o pakawalang babae si K. She's just a normal, hot-blooded, Pinay. Lahat naman tayo may sarili nating kulo sa loob, di ba? May kilala nga ako sa Sales department na babae na mahilig daw makipag-sex sa kotse eh. At least si K, gusto niya sa motel maganap ang dapat maganap.
So yun na nga.
Mabalik tayo sa nalilitongh si K.
"Bookie, I think I'm going to lose my virginity before I turn 26," K said to me, with a dead-serious face.
I sighed, "Sigurado ka na ba diyan? Remember, pag nawala ang hymen mo, hindi na maibabalik yan. Parang failed customer survey yan, hindi disputable."
She shook her pretty head, "Sure na ako, girl. This is really is it. Siya na."
"Siya na? Sinong siya?" I asked.
"Si D," she said, blushing.
Ito si D:
D is, in one word, ma-el.
What's more, he's kinda good-looking, medyo sungki lang ang ngipin. Pero definitely cute.
K is medyo mahiyain. D is medyo maangas.
Baligtad sila. At ngayon, magbabaligtaran sila sa kama.
"Kelan?" I asked.
"Next week, the day before my birthday," she smiled.
I laughed, "Grabe ka rin mag-regalo sa sarili mo ha. Some people get tattoos on their birthdays, pero ikaw, iba ka, you get rid of your hymen."
"Sigurado ka ba diyan?" I asked her, seriously.
Pero bago pa siya nakasagot, sumulpot na si D sa likod niya, na ikinagulat namin pareho.
"You ready?" he asked, smiling his crooked, yet cute, smile.
