"Are you done reminiscing now?" Kuya Rage is now being sarcastic that made me brought into my reality. Nakangisi pa rin sa'kin si Kuya Isaiah na ikinabuntong-hininga ko naman.
"Him being in a relationship with Tatiana is probably none of my business, Kuya. So don't you try bringing up his name here. What happened between Alejandro and me is nothing to do with him," malamig na sambit ko at matapos no'n ay nag[paalam nang umakyat para pumasok sa aking kwarto nang maalala kung paano niya ako pagbintangan sa ginawa ko kay Tatiana nung isang linggo lang.
I don't know where all those madness is coming from. But as time passes by, maybe things are really meant to change. That nothing is permanent and maybe he was just really playing that time at hindi ko matanggap iyon.
He never told me that he likes me. All he did was to give me mixed signals and knowing the fact that he was really a flirt back then, it just strengthen my assumptions that maybe he was just playing.
Tulala pa rin ako nang makauwi noong nakaraan. I don't think I could even face Kreventius the next day after what happened because of too much humiliation I've got lately, but I have left no choice.
"Alam mo bang galit na galit ang parents ni Ms. Villatore sa ginawa mo, Ms. Albrecht? They don't just want us to file you a suspension but rather an expulsion for what you did since you nearly killed her," The principal remarked while I'm still processing what happened.
"But she didn't do it, ma'am!"
"May ebidensya ka ba para patunayan 'yon, Ms. Sovran?" tanong nito kay Fleur ngunit hindi siya nakapagsalita.
Nilingon ako ng principal at mabilis na umiling.
"We've known you for being an academic achiever and not just an Albrecht, Ms. Elianna. Pero baka maapektuhan pati ang pag-aaral mo dahil sa ginawa mo." Nangatal ang labi ko.
"But I didn't do it. She purposely did it," pagod na sambit ko.
"How about your cheating issue that just happened lately, Ms. Albrecht? How will you justify that?"
"I was... framed up po." Mariin akong pumikit sa nangyari kanina. "They only did that because they are Tatiana's friends and probably they are mad at me for the thing that they thought I did to their friend. I... I never cheated!"
Gusto kong sumabog sa galit. Right after what happened lately, saktong may exam kami sa philosophy. But I didn't know na may kaklase akong kaibigan pala ni Tatiana na galit sa'kin at nakuhang ilagay yung answer key sa bag ko when our teacher found out that it was missing on her table as she did an inspection.
Nang dahil lang do'n, it feels like my whole life revolves around humiliation.
"Isn't she the one who cheated? Akala ko matalino, cheater pala."
"Obviously. Nahuli daw ng isa sa mga kaklase. Di'ba Albrecht yan?"
I tightly the strap of my bag when I felt how my cheeks burned as shame spiraled through mine upon hearing them eavesdropped regarding the issue.
Saktong bumaling ang tingin ko sa lalaking malamig na nakatingin lang sa'kin at mas lalo akong namula sa kahihiyan.
What is he looking at, huh? Don't tell me that he also believed them?
I'm so done with these gossips of other people and I don't think I have to explain myself to them since they don't even know what happened. Though, I want to tear up because of embarrassment but I won't let them witness me in that state!
Now that he's here? No way.
Walang lingon lingon at iritado ko silang nilampasan nang salubungin ang mga kaibigan. They are even gazing at me with their eyes full of malice as I reached on their table but Hailey blocked my way.
