“Did you give back the bracelet?” Zayn asked the moment I open my eyes.
“Not yet buddy.”
“Scared?” he asked annoyingly.
“Nope. I just have a plan.”
“Plan? What is it buddy?” Louis asked. He’s really curious.
“I will close to her. I want to be friends with her before I’ll return the bracelet.” I explained.
“So? You like her?” asked Zayn.
“No.” I lied.
“Sure?” they asked in chorus.
“Harry, Zayn, Louis, come here. We have visitors.” Tita shouted because she’s on the first floor. We hurriedly went down. And to my surprise, it was Hannah and her mom.
“I called them because your Tito and I decided to have an outing.” Tita explained.
“Where are we going tita?” I asked.
“Palawan.” Tito answered.
Palawan? Where is it? Hmmmm. Maybe it’s a beach’s name or.... never mind. It’s better to be surprised.
“Pack your things. We are going there after lunch. We will stay there for three days.” Tita said.
Wow! What a vacation! I really want to explore this country- to discover and try new things. We went to our room and pack our things.
“Buddy, Hannah will come. This will be the right time.” Zayn assumed. My buddy is genius. Maybe.
“Are you in a hurry?” I asked.
“Buddy, I think you just want to keep the bracelet that’s why you make excuses not to give it back yet.”
“Just trust me buddy.” I assured.
I went to the garden after packing. It’s my way of spending my free time, and for me not to be bored while waiting for lunch. I think Hannah, her mom and tita are on the kitchen because when I’m on my way to the garden, I wasn’t able to see them. And another reason is, I smell something delicious. I sat down on the bench of my favorite tree on tita’s garden. I started plucking my guitar then sang.
‘People say we shouldn't be together
We're too young to know about forever
But I say they don't know what they're talk talk talkin about
Cause this love is only getting stronger
So I don't wanna wait any longer
I just wanna tell the world that you're mine girl
They don't know about the things we do
They don't know about the I love you's
But I bet you if they only knew(they don't know)
They would just be jealous of us
They don't know about the up all nights
They don't know I've waited all my life
Just to find a love that feels this right
Baby they don't know about
They don't know about us
“Wow! You’re a good singer.” A feminine voice spoke. I was surprised that someone’s watching me all this time around. And it’s Hannah.
“Not much.” I replied.
“Can you teach me how to play guitar?” she asked.
“Sure. At first, it will be difficult but doing your best will solve that difficulty.” I explained.
“Uhmmm. I know. But we are not even friends.” She said starting to pout. She’s so funny. Quite childish.
“Aren’t we? Oh I remember, we are lovers.” I said sarcastically.
“Nice joke.” She replied. We both laughed.
“From now on, we are friends. Mark the date. It’s April 26.” She said. We shake- hands.
“Nice meeting you again.” I joked.
“So tell me something about yourself.” She started.
“Lunch is ready!” Zayn shouted. Wrong timing buddy! Get ready, I’ll kill you! Just kidding. I love my buddy but this time, I hate him.
“Let’s go or else we will be late for our outing.” She invited.
We went to the dining room. I saw a lot of foods served. There were cupcakes; it looks delicious.
“Come and sit.” Hannah’s mom said pleasingly.
“Taste this first Harry. Hannah baked it.” Tita said while giving a piece of cupcake. I tasted it and it’s so delicious. The taste is good. I can’t believe she can bake a delicious cupcake like this in her age.
“Delicious.” I complimented. Zayn also tasted the cupcake.
“Great!” he commented. He used his favorite word again, as usual.
“You have a future.” Louis said. She smiled on us. She was flattered.
“Wow, you’re a good singer.” I complimented after Harry sang. I was really impressed.
“Not much.” He replied. He’s humble huh.
“Can you teach me how to play guitar?” I asked and he answered it’s difficult at first. But doing my best will solve that difficulty. Words of Wisdom!
“But we are not even friends.” I said starting to pout. Yes, I’m quite childish.
“Aren’t we? Oh I remember, we are lovers.” He said. My heart skipped after hearing his words although in my mind, it’s just a joke.
“Nice joke.” I replied. After that we shake-hands. This is the start of our camaraderie. April 26.
Our chat was suddenly disturbed when Zayn shoute that lunch is ready. They tasted my cupcakes and I am so flattered about their compliments. I smiled at them.
“Ready! Palawan here we come!” Tita said while we’re on our way.
“Tita, where is Palawan?” Harry asked.
“It’s a part of Luzon.” Tita answered.
“Where is Luzon?” Louis asked. I’m starting to laugh on their questions.
“Here. Luzon is one of the major islands of the Philippines.” Tito explained.
“Philippines? Where is it?” Zayn asked. I burst out of laugh. They are really good in joking. Promise. They all looked at me with what’s-funny-look.
“Nothing.” I said as I open my phone to text someone.
“Where are you pie? Come here let’s enjoy.” I texted him. Yes, it’s him.
“I ask an apology to my pie because I’m on Palawan. I can’t visit you on your house.” He replied.
“What a coincidence! We are on our way there.”
“Really? Just text me if you are already here. I’ll visit you. See you soon pie.’
“Same.” I replied and ended the conversation.
Yes! Finally, I will be able to see him again. It’s been a month that he’s not visiting us. Palawan, I’m coming!
