It was such a sunny Monday morning, a nice day to start the week. Chrissie had her BMW M3 convertible's top down as she was driving to ABAC.

Reina kept squirming in her seat trying to find a comfortable position. She turned to her friend and asked, "Does it always hurt like this?"

"Who told you to overdo it anyway?" Chrissie's delicate eyebrow shot up, casting a sideway glance to her friend. "Damn! Did you actually take time to rest & eat, girl?"

She saw the blush on Reina's cheeks and squealed, "Omigod!"

"Well… We did take time to eat but we always ended up doing so much more." Reina replied sheepishly

"You naughty little sex maniac!" was all Chrissie could say and they both laughed.

They had just entered ABAC and were nearing the car park when all of a sudden, Reina ducked, and grimaced at the pain.

Chrissie was confused at her friend's behavior. Just then, she saw Sherwin waiting for them. Her mouth opened as if to say "Ah!" and her head nodded in silent understanding. Pretending not to see Sherwin, she turned left and parked a few feet away from their usual parking place.

"What has gotten into you?!" Chrissie inquired as she got out of the car. "I would have expected a lot from you than just hide," she added, closing the door and crossing her arms.

Reina got out of the car, fixed herself, shrugged her shoulders and said, "I'm just not ready to face him yet."

Chrissie locked her car, rolled her eyes, shook her head and said, "Yang, sex has made you awfully weird!"

She went ahead, leaving Reina to run after her, shouting, "Chris! Wait up!"


Sherwin had been waiting for Reina at the car park for an hour now. He saw Chrissie coming in half an hour ago but Reina's not with her. Although, it's quite strange for Chrissie not to park at her usual parking space. He shrugged it off and just walked away. He never bothered to wait for Chrissie to get out of the car.

"Maybe Reina's just too tired," he tried to convince himself, again. For the nth time, he called her…

"Hi! The Bitch is quite occupied with more exciting matters, please leave your message after the beep & CALL ME LATER!" came the same reply.

This time he left a message, his patience wearing thin. "Hey Reina, it's me Sherwin. I've been trying to reach you since last night. Are you alright? I'm just a bit worried. Call me, okay?"


Sometime after lunch, Chrissie & Reina were passing by the school's garden near the lagoon to go to their respective classes. Reina spotted Sherwin a few feet away, talking to his friends. She panicked and looked around for somewhere to hide and decided to head for the bushes.

"Yang! We've been doing this for days now! I don't dress up everyday just to crawl & hide behind bushes, trees, in supply rooms… Argh! I could go on & on!" Chrissie hissed through clenched teeth.

"Shhhh… Quiet!" Reina reprimanded her friend. "He'll hear you!" she whispered.

"I don't care!" Chrissie stopped crawling and waved her hands in exasperation. "My Manolos are ruined! I just bought these yesterday!"

"Who told you to wear Manolos to school anyway?!" Reina shot back. "Sometimes you are just so ridiculous!"

"Hah! Look who's talking!" Chrissie looked at her friend in annoyance. "And who, may I remind you, just dragged me to run for cover on all fours? I really can't believe you!"

"I know… I just can't face him yet!" a defensive angry Reina replied.

"Hah! If a word of you dodging Delectable Dorky here gets out, you will no longer be known as the Bitch! Shall I now christen you as Reina the sex CHICKEN?" Chrissie said mockingly as she moved to resume her crawling. But she wasn't fast enough to elude Reina's slap

"Ouch!" she cried out in pain.

"Ssssshhhhhhhh…" Reina hushed.

"Okay… okay…" answered Chrissie, wriggling her nose which gained her a sharp look from Reina.


Sherwin was talking to his friends when he noticed a slight movement in the bushes. It was rather odd because there's no wind, so it couldn't be the wind making those movements. And it was only in that particular spot. The rest of the bushes were still. He was about to check it out when a classmate called him.

"Coming!" Sherwin shouted back, shrugged his shoulders, and walked away.


Reina was standing in front of the elevator, on her way to the library at the 3rd floor of the building. The door opened and she went in and she pressed 3.

"Note to self… Do not take any class under Dr. Hua Mak ever again! Damn! I should have learned my lesson the last semester!" cursing herself out loud. Luckily, there was no one with her inside.

"He can't seem to grasp the concept of the information super highway! Ugh! Library work! Chrissie will have hysterics if she finds out! Ugh!" she continued to complain and grumble in irritation.

She was leaning her back on the wall, when the door opened on her floor. She was about to step out when she saw someone she doesn't want to see in a million years: SHERWIN! She hurriedly closed the door and proceeded to the 5th floor!

Without her knowledge, Sherwin saw her and discretely followed her using the stairs, hoping to catch her when she gets out. He was not able to do that but he caught a glimpse of her, going to the Ramayana room.


"Damn! I can't very well hide behind the Rama mural!" Reina muttered as she quickly surveyed the large room, looking for a place to hide.

Her back stiffened when she heard the door open and clicked lock.

"You've been avoiding me," Sherwin said flatly.

"Busted!" Reina thought in defeat but doesn't turn and acknowledge his presence.

Sherwin walked toward her, "So we're back to her Highness, Reina Yang, huh?"

He stopped beside her and continued, "Such a pity. I'm really not expecting anything from THE Reina Yang but I'm expectin...
