"No, don't sign that thing." Austin stormed in. Mas lalong bumilis ang paghampas ng puso ko sa aking dibdib.
"Austin...the PR! Your collab is coming up. We need this. You need this!" Macky gritted his teeth.
"I don't need a fucking collab!" Austin shouted. Natahimik ang lahat. Ako, hindi ako makatingin sa kanila. Nararamdaman ko ang maiinit na mga mata sa akin at kay Austin.
"Renee needs it! Help out a fellow artist of yours! And delete that post for goodness sake!" Macky almost shouted and massaged his temple.
"No." iling ni Austin at napasinghap.
"Austin..." I started. The tension in t
#CollisionKab8"Good morning ladies and gentlemen, this is Philippine Airlines flight PR822 bound for New York," the chief flight attendant said. "Now we request for your full attention as the flight attendants demonstrate the safety features of this aircraft."A flight attendant was speaking, directing us about the safety measures of the flight. I put my phone on airplane mode and listened to music as we took off. I listened to some of Austin's songs, which was a bit weird. He wrote these songs before I came to his life..."So take a piece of my heart,And make it all your own...So when we are apart,You'll never be alone..."Who the hell is this song about?
#CollisionKab9"Hi Rosie!" nagulat ako sa bati ng nanay ni Austin.How?...Bakit niya ang alam ang pangalan ko? Palayaw ko pa. Nonetheless, I greeted her too."Good afternoon po!" nakipagkamay ako sa magulang ni Austin.Ewan ko ba kung bakit ako kinakabahan! Nginitian ko na lang sila. "Fake it until you make it" naalala ko ang sinabi ni Austin.Damn...His mom looked very pretty. Maputi ang balat, katulad ni Austin. Her hair's cut mid-length and they're also curly. She looked like a model from a magazine! It seemed like she doesn't look a day old over 30!
#CollisionKab10"How did you know?" tanong ko kay Reese.Nakaupo ako sa higaan niya, nakatingin sa kisame. Miss ko na ang Canada, and one specific person who's there right now."Hey," I tried calling Reese's attention. He knows a lot of stuff, even things he doesn't even bother to stick his nose in. Basta't nalalaman niya na lang. I don't know how he even does that.Tinignan ako ni Reese at ngumiti ng mapang-asar. Yep, he's that kind of brother. Masungit, mapang-asar, andcaringat the same time."I have my ways." he just shrugged me off, like he always does. Nakaupo siya sa vanity ng hotel room at may kinakalikot sa laptop.
#CollisionKab11Austin let me inside his condo. It has a large living room, but more like an open space since a small studio occupied the area. May set-up ng microphone, electric guitar, keyboard at ibang instruments at equipment na hindi ko alam ang pangalan. Nakalahati na niya ang album na ginagawa nila. Isa na sa mga kantang nasa album ay 'yung kinanta ni Austin nung nasa balcony nila kami.Nakahiga na kami ngayon sa sofa niya. He was holding me close and I can't help but reach for his hair! Miss ko na 'yung mahaba niyang buhok! Ayan tuloy, hindi na nagagamit 'yung headband niya...Nagpagupit kasi si Austin nung isang araw. Mas maikli na ang mga kulot niya ngayon. Mas gusto kong mahaba! Ang ganda lang kasing suklayin gamit ang daliri.
#CollisionKab12Warning: R-18 - Mature Content"Did you know, love..." Austin lazily trailed off while analyzing the chess board.We were playing chess in a couch near a pool. The beach is just right in front us, waves slowly retreating from the sand. So far, maganda naman ang laro namin. I always play chess with Anthony when we were younger. Sobra niyang galing dito eh, lagi akong talo. Pero nahawa naman siguro ako sa kagalingan niya. King at bishop na lang ang natira kay Austin, habang queen, king, isang rook at pawn ang sa akin."...A queen is much stronger than his king." pagpapatuloy niya. He licked his lips and looked at me. I smirked. Na-trap ang bishop niya sa rook at pawn ko. I moved
#CollisionKab13Austin and I flew back to Manila the night on our third day. We just ate and enjoyed the waters. Nag sight-seeing din kami kasama ang isang tour guide. Ayaw kong magka-misunderstanding ulit si Macky at Austin kaya pinilit ko siyang huwag magpost ng pictures. He hesitated at first, pero bumigay rin sa gusto ko. Para na rin iyon sa ikabubuti niya kasi.Napapasyahan kong dalhin siya sa bahay sa araw pagkatapos ng aming pagbalik. Gusto ko muna siyang ipakilala kay Manang bago tuluyang ipakilala kay Mom and Dad. Alam kong wala pa sila sa bahay kaya ngayong week ko siya ipapasyal doon."Are you sure?" nag-aalangang tanong ni Austin. Gamit niya ang dalawang kamay sa pagmamaneho habang diretsahang nakatingin sa daan.
#CollisionKab14"Who's Renee?"I was scrolling through my phone when I remembered the article I read last time. Naisipan kong mag-Google ulit tungkol kay Renee at Austin. A few articles popped up, dating two years ago."Renee? Renee Saragosa?" his brows quirked up. Tumango ako at niliitan siya ng mata.Austin and I were waiting for our order in an Italian restaurant here in Makati. Lunch break ko at tinext ko siya upang magkita kami. Gusto sana namin sa BGC kaso malayo at baka ma-late pa si Austin sa kanyang interview. Medyo marami kasi siyang fans na nagpapapicture 'pag lumalabas kami sa dito sa Makati. Lumalayo na lang ako 'pag may lalapit sa kanya. Ayokong makaabala.
#CollisionKab15Nakakunot ang noo ko habang tinitingnan ang showbiz article mula sa isang magazine site.Ausnee: The COMEBACK you've been waiting for!Yesterday, the power couple was spotted at Ayala Triangle, Public Display of Affection clearly evident!The pictures below seem to make us speechless!Source: Retromag PHParang pinipiga ang puso ko habang tiningnan ang mga litrato sa aking cellphone screen.
