“She’s what?!!!” both Luna and Dee Dee asked at the same time when Zen told them about what just happened between him and Scha to them in his office. Dee Dee actually came to asked why Scha called for a sick leave today while Luna came in just to have a chat with him since her job has completed. She’s going back to New York soon and they (Scha, Zen and Dee Dee) have planned to have farewell dinner for her together tonight.
“She found out about Mr. Anonymous. She told me to leave her alone. She felt betrayed by me,” he sighed. “I intend to tell her the truth today. This morning but I guess I was too late. She found out herself,” shaking his head regretting what had just happened.
“Well, I understand her feelings,” said Luna in a sorry tone, “I would be angry and felt betrayed too if I’m in her place. I’ve told you to tell her sooner but you are so stubborn.”
“Yeah I should have listened to you,” nodded Zen sadly sighing again.
“Stop whining and sighing Zen,” scolded Dee Dee, “Go over to her place, talk to her again.”
“I’ve tried Dee, but she shutting me down,” Zen told her with a regret tone, “She won’t even answer my calls.”
“Not even mine,” injected Luna, “I’ve tried but I think she turn off her phone,” she shrugged.
Dee Dee signed and tried to dialed Scha number but was answered by the answering machine, “She didn’t even answered her house phone,” slamming her phone on the table. “Gosh, she is so stubborn. She must be very angry.”
“Yes she is,” sigh Zen again combing his messy hair with his hand.
“So what are you going to do?” asked Luna, “You’re not going to give up just like that are you?”
“Definitely no,” Zen shook his head, “I’m giving her time to think clearly about this. Then I’m going to talk to her again. I’m not giving up on her. I thinks she knows that I really loves her but all she need right now is to convince herself that she’s really loves me too.”
“Problem is, Scha is too stubborn to admit her feelings towards you,” scoffed Dee Dee. “Just look at it, you both have been together for nearly 3 weeks now and she still hides her feelings towards you. I don’t think she even say the words, “I love you” to you,” she pointed out.
“She has,” confessed Zen happily making both Luna and Dee Dee’s eyes open widely, “Last night she confessed her feelings towards me.”
“What?” gasped Dee Dee, “She did? And you both….?” She cast a naughty look at Zen and his face turned red as a lobster immediately. She chuckled, “Why you naughty boy,” she playfully teased him. “I was wondering how she managed to read the e-mail from your phone. Ah. Now I know,” she laughed.
Zen’s face still flushed, “Shut up Dee,” he scolded her while Luna just laughed at both of them.
His phone suddenly rang making the three of them stopping laughing and looked at it. Zen immediately answered it, “Hello,” while both Luna and Dee Dee looked at him hoping that it was Scha who’s calling him.
“Oh! Hi mom,” Zen responded with a regret tone. Luna and Dee Dee sighed and looked at each other.
“What?!!” Zen suddenly gasped, “How is he?” he asked.
Few second later he replied, “I’m on my way right now.’ He turned off his phone. “I’m sorry girls,” he told them panicky and stood up immediately, “I have to go.”
“What’s wrong?” asked Luna concernedly.
“My grandpa had a heart attack and he’s in the hospital,” he explained to them and walked to his door but stopped half-way, “Oh, I need to tell Scha about this,” scratching his head, “but how? She wouldn’t answer my calls.”
“Don’t worry Zen,” assured Dee Dee, “We’ll tell her. We’ll go over to her place and tell her. Ok?” while Luna just nodded.
“Thanks Dee, Luna,” he smiled and ran towards the lift.
Luna looked at Dee Dee, “You think Scha will talk to us? She won’t even answer our calls,” she asked.
“Don’t worry I’m going to make her talked to us,” said Dee Dee confidently. “And I’m also going to make Scha forgives Zen. She’s going to run over to him and tell him how much she loves him and didn’t want to loose him.”
“You really going to do that?” asked Luna amazed, “How?”
“Well, I have an idea how,” she smirked and Luna gave her a question look.
How could he? How could he? How could he? That’s what her mind keeps asking her. He has been playing with her. She has been so stupid. He must have been laughing so hard behind her back all this while, laughing hysterically with both Dee Dee and Luna; laughing at her stupidity. She’s been crying for hours since he’s gone. She felt so betrayed, hurt and played out by him.
He said he loves her. Even before he leave just now he told her he loves her. Can’t someone loves you do such a thing? Pretend to be someone else, make her fall in love with you and then tell her you love someone else? He must be laughing so hard when she told her she’s in love with him and hard broken when he’s in love with someone else when all these while that someone else is actually her. Gosh, she is so stupid.
She sighed. She is stupid and because of her stupidity these things happen to her. She has been so stupid to realize Zen’s love to her. He told her that he loves her for as long as he could remember. He’s been trying to tell her his feeling before he went to college but she’s so stupid and blind to realize it. She has been his best friend for almost all her life but she still couldn’t understand his feelings. She still couldn’t read his mind and body language about his true feelings towards her. She didn’t even know that he could write beautiful and romantic poems. She didn’t even know or believe at first that he could even be such a romantic guy. Some best friend she is, who didn’t even know a thing about her best friend.
She shouldn’t be angry with him for pretending to be someone else. He’s doing all that because of her. Who’s to blame about his actions but she herself? It’s her fault, her own fault. He’s been trying to tell his feelings to her. He’s been trying to tell her that he’s the guy for her, the guy she’s been waiting for but she’s too blind to realize. She been too stupid to realize that the jewel she’s been looking for is actually right in front of her all this time.
She smiled, she glad he didn’t give up on her. She glad that he willing to do anything to get her. Glad that he never gives up to make her realized that he was the one for her. Well that’s really proves that he truly loves her. What more proves does she need to ask from him? He has shows how much he care and understand. He understands her more that she understands herself.
She will be really, really stupid if she ever let him go. He’s the kind of boyfriend a girl would always wish for. She chuckled, no way she ever going to let him go. No way, but she’s not going to let him know that she’s forgiven him. She’s going act as if she still angry with him and she’s going to make him beg for her forgiveness. He’s definitely are feeling miserable right now. She knows that he definitely will try his best to get her to talk to him. He will definitely try to pamper her to make her forgive him. She chuckled and bites her lips when she thinks about what he will do to pamper her and she will definitely love it.
She turned on her phone and saw almost 20 missed calls from Zen and around 10 calls from the office and a few from Dee Dee and Luna. She knows that he’s not giving up on her. She smiled happily thinking of the way Zen going to coax her.
Suddenly her door bell rang. Who could it be at this hour, she asked herself. Looking from behind the door she saw Dee Dee and Luna standing in front of it. They both looked concerned. They could see that she has been crying.
“What you both doing here?” she asked them pretend to be still angry with her hand on her hips.
“Scha, please listen to us,” pleaded Luna.
“If you both come here to talk about Zen and his pretence, you better leave. I don’t want to hear any of it,” she scoffed.
“No, we’re not going to talk about what Zen has done to you but there’s something we need to tell you about Zen,” added Dee Dee. Luna cast a weird at Dee Dee. She didn’t know what Dee Dee’s plan but she remained calm and goes ahead with whatever Dee Dee had in mind. After all Dee Dee told her that she knows how to bring Scha and Zen back together. All Luna has to do is follow her lead.
“What about Zen?” asked Scha trying hard to hide her uneasy feelings about whatever Dee Dee’s going to tell to her. She turned to look at Luna who held a panic look and back to Dee Dee.
“Zen,” Dee Dee nervously replied, “Zen in the hospital,” finished her words.
“What?!!” Scha gasped.
