Hindi mapigilan ni Jase ang kaniyang mga ngiti na dahan dahang mawala sa kaniyang mukha habang palakas ng palakas ang paghagikgik ni Rob sa kaniyang tabi. Kaaabot niya lang dito ng isang baso na puno ng kwekwek at tokneneng, nung una ay nagulat pa ito at tumitig sa isang basong iyon saka dahan-dahang ibinalik ang tingin kay Jase at nagsimulang humagikgik.

Nakausli ang nguso ni Jase habang nakatingin sa pwesto nila Rob at Pao. Pinigilan niya ang sarili niya na ubusin ang lahat ng beer sa bar na iyon dahil magda-drive pa siya kaya nagkasya na lamang siya sa pagngi-ngitngit sa isang sulok habang pinapanood sila Rob at Pao magbulungan, magtawanan at maglandian. Ilang beses pang sumagi sa kaniyang isip kung bakit niya nararamdaman ang inis na iyon gayong kanina lamang nang pumasok si Rob sa bar na iyon ay hindi siya magkamayaw sa pag-ngiti pero ang pagsagi na ito ng isang bagay na hindi niya maipaliwanag sa kaniyang isip ay agad ding matatabunan ng pakiramdam ng inis.

Nakasimangot na lumabas si Rob sa isa nanamang mamahaling restaurant galing sa isa nanamang date na sinet-up ni Jase. Dikit kilay at kunot noong binuksan ni Jase ang kaniyang sasakyan upang papasukin si Rob na nangingilid na ang luha. Pabalang na ibinagsak ni Rob ang kaniyang sarili sa passenger seat at tila ba gustong gusto ng sumigaw sa inis, galit o dahil sa frustration, hindi alam ni Jase. Tatanungin na sana ni Jase kung ano ang nangyari dito nang bigla itong magsalita.


It doesn't exist.”

Kunot noo na nakatitig si Rob sa kaniyang telepono. Magkikita sila ngayon ni Jase, may kailangan silang tapusin para sa business nito bago ito magbukas pero magkakalahating oras na siyang naghihintay at wala parin ni anino ni Jase, ilang beses narin niya ito tinext at isang reply lang ang natanggap niya dito na male-late daw ito dahil sa sobrang traffic.

Hey!”

Hindi alam ni Rob kung bakit doble ang kaniyang nararamdamang pangongonsensya sa sarili ngayon. Matagal na nilang ginagawa ni Ace ang kamunduhang iyon sa likod ng asawa nito pero hindi niya maintindihan kung bakit kakaiba itong pagkakataon na ito, hindi niya alam kung ito ba ay marahil sa alam niyang nasa malapit lang si Sheila at malaki ang tyansa na mahuli sila nito o may iba pang rason na hanggang ngayon ay hindi niya parin alam at naiintindihan.


Mabilis niyang inayos ang kaniyang sarili habang si Ace ay humihingal parin matapos ang kanilang ginawa at mataman siyang pinapanood. Umiiling siya at tila ba paiyak na, bagay na hindi nakaligtas sa mapanuring mata ni Ace.


Why do you look so upset?” tanong ni Ace sabay tayo ng maayos at inayos ang sarili.

Kinakabahang tinitigan ni Rob ang handle ng pinto sa may passenger seat ng sasakyan ni Jase. Tinititigan niya ito na tila ba kakainin siya nito, ang ginagawang pagtitig na ito ni Rob na nagsasabing nagaalangan itong bumaba ng sasakyan ay hindi naman nakaligtas kay Jase na hindi mapigilang mapahagikgik. Narinig ni Rob ang mahinang paghagikgik na iyon ni Jase at tinapunan niya ito ng isang nahihiyang tingin.


Will you just get out of the friggin' car?!” natatawang saad ni Jase.

Hindi makapaniwala si Jase sa kaniyang natanggap na Email. Inaprobahan na ang kaniyang nire-request na loan para sa page-expand ng Gustav's, kahapon lang ay isang malutong at tila ba nangiinis na “I'm sorry I can't approve your loan---” ang kaniyang natanggap mula sa representative ng bangko na siyang kaniyang pinag-apply-an, ngayon naman ay taliwas sa sinabi nito kahapon ang kaniyang natanggap sa email.


Ilang saglit pang tinitigan ni Jase ang email bago pa sumagi sa isip niya ang posibilidad na baka may kinalaman ang kaniyang bagong kaibigang si Rob sa biglaang pagiiba ng ihip ng hangin na iyon. Agad na naningkit ang kaniyang mga mata at napailing nang maalala ang biglaang pagkakaroon ng katext-mate ni Rob nung gabing kinuwento niya ang tungkol sa hindi pagaapruba ng kaniyang loan.

Hindi alam ng dalawa kung pano kikilos sa tabi ng isa't-isa. Hindi maintindihan ni Rob kung bakit bigla siyang nahiya kay Jase gayong nuong mga panahon namang nagluluksa ito sa pagkamatay ni Aaron ay kayang kaya at mayabang pa nga siyang nagbibigay ng advices dito habang si Jase naman ay hindi inaasahan ang biglaang pagkahiya ni Rob dahil inaasahan niyang ito ang siyang unang magsasalita at magbubukas ng usapan.

Hindi makuwang lapitan ni Rob si Jase habang pinapanood itong nakatitig sa kawalan. Nakita niya itong lumabas ng simbahan matapos itong tawagin ng ina ni Aaron upang ito naman ang mag bigay ng kaniyang eulogy. Nung una ay akala ng lahat na lalapit na ito sa pulpito at kukuwanin sa matandang babae ang mikropono pero laking gulat nilang lahat ng sa kalagitnaan ng paglalakad nito ay bigla itong tumalikod at naglakad palabas ng simbahan.


Hindi nakayanan ni Rob ang bulung-bululngan ng mga tao at ang paghagulgol lalo ng mga taong malapit kay Aaron, hindi nakayanan ni Rob na isiping nahihirapan ngayon si Jase tanggapin ang lahat lalong lalo pa ngayon na kung saan ang seremonyang ito sa loob ng simbahan ang tutuldok at mawe-mwersa sa kanilang lahat na tangapin na wala na talaga si Aaron kaya naman sinundan niya si Jase palabas din ng simbahan.


Akmang tatayo narin sana ang ina ni Jase at susundan ito sa labas ng marahan itong pigilan ni Cha sa pagtayo at tinignan ang naglalakad na si Rob palabas ng simbahan. Nakuwa naman ng ina ni Jase ang ibig sabihin ni Cha kaya marahan na lang itong tumango at nagpatuloy na lang sa paglalakad papunta sa pulpito upang siya na lang ang magbigay ng mga magagandang salita kapalit ng kaniyang anak.

Madilim na nang makarating si Rob sa lugar kung saan nakaburol si Aaron. Nasa isa itong magandang side chapel ng isang malaking simbahan. Base sa nakikita niyang mga sasakyan na nakaparada sa paligid ng simbahan ay alam niyang puno ang side chapel na iyon ng mga taong nagmamahal at nagpapahalaga kay Aaron, isang bagay na kinaiinggitan niya mula sa namayapang kaibigan.


Pagpapahalaga ng ibang tao kay Aaron, yan ang kinaiinggitan ni Rob, yun ang bagay na siyang dati niya pa minimithi kaya naman sa tuwing nagpapakita ng kahit kaonting importansya sa kaniya si Ace ay pinapatulan niya ito. Hindi pangit si Ace, sa katunayan ay pangartista ang mukha at katawan nito at sa katunayan din ay minsan ng nahulog ang loob ni Rob dito pero alam niyang hindi sila para sa isa't isa.


Ramdam niyang hindi sila para sa isa't isa.
