Gustuhin ko man baguhin ang reality ko para makagawa ng isang love story, I can only try but it will only end up somewhere closer to bed but not quite close to home.

Few months ago, wala kami masyado communication ni Nathan. I was busy, he was busy. On top of that, I ended our friendship (na nauwi din sa friendship ulit, kasi kailangan ko yong internet access sa isang urgent work). Last June, he told me he is coming to Saigon and informed me of the itinerary but I am not sure if he will push through.

Kung sakaling dumating sya, I want to be prepared. I want to smell good and just be pretty. Although work is very toxic lately, I want to look well rested and relaxed. So lie low muna sa nakakapuyat na activities. On the day of the travel date, di ko na kaya yong suspense. I left my desk and went out to get some drinks at 3pm, habang humuhugot ako ng lakas ng loob na tanungin si Nathan. I need the courage na matanggap ko kung sakaling hindi sya dadating and to be brave once and for all to forget him.

"Nathan, dadating ka ba?" There I sent the message.

"Yup." Huh! Deym mas na prepare ko na yong mind ko na hindi sya dadating. Tapos heto dadating sya. It is panic time!

"Sunduin mo po ako sa airport?" tanong nya sa akin.

"Yes Nathan, nandun lang ako sa may gate pagdating mo."

One hour before his arrival, nasa airport na ako. Palalakad- lakad. Antok na ako. Tagal daman ng flight nya. Grabe. How would I know kung anong plane na yong nakarating? Hindi na nagchange yong information after dumating yong Seoul flight, wala ng updates. Iba ibang hugis ng mukha at mata yong mga pasahero, i overhear some passengers speaking in Tagalog, galing Pinas to malamang! I was busy scanning faces when I sensed someone looking at me.

Even without lifting my head, alam ko nakita na nya ako.

"Hi Antoinette"
"Hi Nathan"

"Parang Pilipinas din pala dito?" sabi ni Nathan habang tumingin sa paligid.

"Yes a little bit like Makati and and meron din distinctly Viet Nam. O paano, let's go na." I smiled at him. The least that I can do is make him feel welcome after he travelled all this way.
He arrived at 1am plus, it is not a right time for sight-seeing.

I lived in a luxurious condo in HCMC courtesy of my client. The place is really clean and well maintained. I bought one extra dinner for him earlier, in case he is hungry. I just showed him where to put his stuffs. Then dumiretso na ako kama, which is a king size bed, antok na kasi ako.

Kaya kumain muna sya, then after a while naligo at tumabi na sa akin. Pagtabi ni Nathan nawala antok ko.

"Antoinette, paano ka nakakatulog dito?'
"Bakit Nathan? May problema ba?"

"Nalulula ako sa glass window. Sobrang taas. Nakakatakot."

Ito pinili ko kasi gusto ko mataas at maganda talaga yong view. Kita yong saigon river sa left side tapos yong business district sa front. But since it is in 22nd floor, napakaganda ng skyline.

Nakalimutan ko may fear of heights si Nathan. I really thought hindi sya tutuloy dito kasi takot yata sya sumakay ng plane at madaming nag-crash na planes lately.

"Teka, i will adjust the blinds... Hayan perfect or we can switch places para ako yong mas malapit sa bintana." Dinaganan ko sya habang inaabot yong string ng blinds, tinatamad ko na kasi tumayo.

"Okay na Antoinette."

"Good.. sge nyt na Nathan. Sleep well." We were facing the opposite site of the bed. Ako naman nahihirapan ng makatulog pampatulog ko na yong selfie twice at night before sleeping and once (or twice) in the morning.

I'm not comfortable rubbing myself down there na may lalaki akong katabi.

Also, wala ako karapatang maginitiate ng sex with Nathan, considering that I ended our FUBU arrangement. As far as we are concerned we are just friends who happen to share a bed. Deym! What a predicament! I twisted and twisted till 4 am. Hanggang sa, the next thing I know it is already 7 am and I am in his arms.

That was my deepest 3 hours sleep, sulit na rin in a way. I slowly lifted my face to look at him. Tulog pa siya. Nilapit ko yong mukha ko sa mukha nya, nakalimutan ko kung gaano ka gwapo si Nathan at gaano ka ganda yong katawan nya. Nathan has brown eyes. Di ko alam bakit light brown yong mata nya.

I inhaled at his scent. Grabe it is not perfume but his natural scent drives me crazy. Gusto ko ibaon yong mukha ko sa leeg at dibdib ni Nathan. Nagsettle na lang ako na e nudge yong nose ko sa pisngi nya.

"Good morning" aniya at bigla nya hinalikan yong nose ko and the top of my head.

"Good morning Nathan. Hope you had a good sleep."

"Okay lang. Ang likot-likot mo pala matulog. Hmmm" Sabi ni Nathan habang nakayakap ng mahigpit sa akin.

"Sorry hindi kasi ako nakatulog kagad. Nathan, gusto mo ng Vietnamese food for breakfast? Tara lets go to the market, madami pagkain doon." Excited akong hilahin si Nathan.

"Tara, lets go Antoinette." mabilis lang kaming naghanda para pumunta sa palengke, which is just behind the building where i am staying.

Magkahawak kamay kami ni Nathan habang naghahanap kung saan pwede kumain. Ang lokal na kainan nila ay nasa tabi tabi lang tapos maliit na table at chair, then pag madami kumakain masarap doon. Beef noodle for breaksfast pinili nya at duck rice noodle naman sa akin. Medyo maputi at makinis si Nathan. Dami girls napapatingin sa kanya but what i like about him is that I have his full attention.

Bumalik kami sa unit to prepare for work. Gusto nya ako ihatid sa office at sya naman ay mamamasyal while I'm working. Sinabihan ko syang balikan ako during lunchbreak para sabay na kami kumain at ng maipakilala ko sya sa isang Vietnamese girl na kaibigan ko.

"Hien, this is Nathan."
"Nathan, this si Hien." Hien, is taller than me and slim, secretary sya ng big boss. She for me is classy, beautiful and kind.

One time sa office meron isang guy who said in a loud voice "Antoinette, come here. Hien, come here (thinking na work related, lumapit kaming dalawa ni Hien). Somebody asked me who I think is the prettiest girl on the floor. I told him these two are the prettiest." Akala ko talaga ano sasabihin ng lalaking yon. Napangiti na lang ako at si Hien naman, she smiled shyly. To be compared with her is really a biggie she is 10 years younger! Dami girls sa office pero wala talagang drop-dead gorgeous.

I told Hien kung ano yong order namin ni Nathan.

Naghanap na kami ng table ni Nathan. Hinawakan niya yong dalawang palad ko gusto nya akong yakapin at halikan. Nakontento na lang sya sa paglapit ng lips nya sa noo ko. Konting daplis lang. Gusto ko rin syang yakapin.

"Lam mo Nathan, si Hien, is no ordinary Vietnamese girl. She is well travelled and highly educated (may MBA sa top 100 business schools in the world). Her bloodline is from ruling class in Viet Nam before it became a communist country. Kinuha ng government yong ari-arian ng family nya at inilagay sa prison yong mga lolo at lola nya. Yong mga kapatid ng lolo at lola nya tumakbo at nanirahan na sa Australia yong iba sa France, pero yong sa kanya ayaw umalis sa Viet Nam. Grabe no? The story of her ancestry is book worthy. Sabi ko kanya na gumawa sya ang book. Ang ganda nya no… stand out talaga yong ganda nya compared to other Vietnamese women."

"Okay lang sya. Mas maganda ka pa sa kanya, Antoinette."
"Hala! Thanks (nagkwento lang naman ako)" Lagi talaga bias sa akin si Nathan. I am beginning to worry na magiging matandang binata sya. Pag tinatanong ko kung may prospect na sya, lagi ang sagot 'Wala. Mas maganda ka pa. Hindi mo lang alam kung gaano ka kaganda or ka sexy."

Nahinto na pag uusap namin kasi nag-join na si Hien sa table. Na amuse sya sa amin ni Nathan kasi yong mga ibang parts ng food I gave to Nathan, while he give me some parts of his food.

That night nagdinner kaming dalawa in Saigon River Cruise. Para sa akin, to be in a boat is most romantic. I imagine my one true love wrapping his arms around me na parang Titanic tapos we are looking at the glistening water wrapped by serene peaceful night, that would be a dream come true.

"Antoinette, mukhang bagay sayo yong damit ng mga Vietnamese",
"Hmmm, pwede". I answered with a big amused smile.
Yong mga babae sa boat are wearing their traditional clothing. Yong hat na lang yong kulang and they would look like some water benders in the river (like Avatar anime.)

Tahimik lang si Nathan. He was just relaxing. While, I want to freeze the moment and capture it in my memory.

Di mahilig magsalita si Nathan. He reminded me sa bida ng UP movie. Yong guy doon hindi nagsasalita. I think we can make many memories together. Like ko yong kanta doon na 'remember when'.

Well madami na rin naman pala kami memories.

The night was still young kaya naglalakad- lakad pa kami ni Nathan sa riverside papuntang Opera House. Madaming hotels sa district1 and the city looks majestic. We are quite a pair.

"Sinasadya mo bang banggain ng suso mo yong braso ko?"
"Huh? Hindi ah… yong kamay mo yata yong sumi-simpleng manghipo ." Hmm na bump ko nga ng konti kamay nya. Nathan is a boobs man. He did not let those subtle moments pass. He pressed his arms on my chest some more.

"Sandali kailangan ko bumili ng condom."
"Huwa!! Ui! Aanhin mo yon Nathan?" As if naman magse-sex kami.

"Wala lang just in case. Baka bumigay din ako sa charms mo eventually."

"Hoy ako pa ang tukso! Anong kala mo sakin. Napakawholesome ko nga. Di nga ako nagpakita ng motibo or anything. Diba ayaw mo rin may sex at gusto mo lang naman mamasyal dito." paalala ko sa kanya.

"Oo nga kaya wag ka na rin umasa" pagsang-ayon ni Nathan. "Kaya lang just in case. Mainam na yong handa."

"Sge ikaw bahala. Dito lang ako sa labas ng Circle K Mart".

Tahimik lang kaming umuwi ni Nathan pagkatapos mga 10 pm na kasi kagad. Kanya kanyang kaming bukas ng FB habang magkatabi sa kama. Tapos pinatay ko na yong ilaw and gaya noong inakaraang gabi, di na naman ako makatulog.

"Di ka makatulog no?" tanong niya.
"Hmmm.. nahihirapan kasi ako. Dami ko suot ang init." (may aircon naman)

"Oo nga, just be yourself." Pareho kasi kami, medyo naked kung matulog. So I removed everything except for the panty, and covered myself with the blanket.

Kaya lang may kulang pa… yong 2 selfies ko. Pasimple kong binuksan ulit yong tablet ko to watch some BDMS porn. Gusto ko kasi yong sinasaktan yong girl. Ewan bagong fantasy ko yong ganito.

"Nathan, okay lang ba sayo mag masturbate ako dito? Di kasi ako makatulog pag wala yon." There I am being myself.

"Okay lang. Ako rin eh… kailangan ko rin gawin o sge kanya-kanya na tayo." sagot naman ni Nathan at hinubad na nya shorts at brief nya.

Hubad na si Nathan at ako naman topless lang but still inside the blanket.
"Pasilip naman." ngek gagawin pa yata akong apetizer sa selfie nya. Inilihis nya ng konti yong kumot ko. My traitor body parts are now standing proud,as us...

Lovers for a night, lovers for tonight
Stay here with me, love, tonight
