    JAEVON


    Reality shows often produce loveteams. Two random people getting paired up either by natural circumstances or by producers, has become a staple in a show such as PBB. It is therefor not surprising that as soon the Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash edition began, viewers and fan group almost immediately started scrambling in search for potential pairs for their early favorites. The pairing is often called in TV language as a ship.

    This is the story of a boy and a girl, and the ship that they inspired.

    We first met the girl as a member of the Villa Housemates, the disadvantaged kids; the ones who grew up at the wrong side of the track.

    She was the Bubbly Promdi, a friendly, naive young lady with a ready smile and a generous laugh. People fell in love with her simplicity and kindness.

    When the Villa was merged with the rich Apartment teens, her fans excitedly hoped that a particular male housemate from the other group would get to know their beloved girl. He was handsome, kind and gentle and as their paths crossed, people squealed and eagerly waited for the tandem to be officially identified as a pair. "Asaness" they called themselves which in English means "hopefuls".

    But as fate would have it, a third set of housemates was introduced to the competition - the Teenternationals. That’s when the viewers were first laid eyes on the Dashing Dude from Australia. Audience members were enthralled with his striking good looks, quiet dignity and sexy accent. The addition of his team to the set of mix, changed the dynamics of the game, and to a great extent the set of pairs and loveteams.

    Strange as it may seem, even before the two groups would meet each other, several people were already saying how great it would be if the gorgeous lad from down under would meet the dusky beauty from the south.

    This would be the time that the term Jaevon would first be used to refer to the group that would ship Dashing Dude with Bubbly Promdi.

    The Jaevon ship remained at the dock, quietly, patiently awaiting for the right time to sail. And as it looked to begin its journey on the day of the backpackers’ task, the day the two were set to meet, the ship encountered its first adversity, because the brief meeting was not what the fans had hoped for.

    And even as the two houses were consolidated, it didn’t seem that the ship that a few good supporters were trying to keep afloat was bound to get anywhere at all. It appeared to be doomed even before it could sail on.

    But in what is to be a a common occurrence in this group, just as when things were looking down, something happens that turns things around. While the ship was looking to be forever docked and forgotten, fate took a strange twist; and as the season was drawing to a close, the two individuals to whom the ship was dedicated, grew closer and closer and closer.

    And this is what sets the story of the boy and the girl apart from the rest.

    While several fan groups formed and grew in large numbers after they decided who they wanted paired up with their bets; as producers prodded certain housemates to the direction of preferred "ka-loveteam" through encouragement and set up situations ; as prime time viewers were given the impression that this and that particular housemate liked each other though one of them couldn’t stand the other; while people were waiting for "kilig" moments from other housemates and looking at a different direction, boy and girl were at the background, getting to know each other without the benefit of a close up shot, without prime time exposure, without people even realizing it.

    Unbeknownst to him, two big ships were already warring against each other, trying to beat the other in the race of who would be his official loveteam after the show was over.

    Unbeknownst to her, she had gotten into a you-and-me against the world situation.

    But life moves in mysterious ways. Even when the large audience were often denied the chance to see the real stories inside the house, the forces of the universe always finds a way to reveal them.

    When the boy left due to his illness, and returned just in the nick of time, it was the lingering hugs and the girl's instinctive discovery of his return that made people take notice.

    It reminded the audience of the audition for the Big Goal concert, wherein not only did boy and girl performed as duet partners, they were also the stand outs in the dance auditions. And while most viewers were surprised at the unlikely pair, many became curious.

    So while they were continued to be denied prime time exposure, the people started searching for clues, and they soon found out that indeed cyber people had long discovered the team up and were in fact organizing themselves in the Pinoy Exchange Boards as well as different networking sites.

    The ship's thread started moving. It was three weeks before the Big Night, and more than a month after the other ships had began. The others had a good head start, but as the boy and the girl's friendship grew stronger, the Jaevon members grew in number.

    Our hearts were set aflutter as we watched the practice sessions for the Big Goal concert, the random conversations, the playful banters at the poolside, the massage sessions, and the scene that had the LS viewers and PEX people coming out of lurkdom - the unforgettable blindfold-prisoner task where the boy and the girl exchanged funny and cute conversations, kisay kisay can-I-lean-on-you-moment, hilarious scratching requests along with a little singing session.

    As far as the PBB crowd was concerned, the JAEVON ship had arrived.

    New members of the group came in droves, by this time the Jaevon, which was also knows as the Jade Gems had become the fastest growing group.

    We gathered around every night, from our respective homes, all waiting for the one thing which had become the trademark of this ship - [highlight]the power hugs.[/highlight]

    During the final stretch of the season, fans became witness to the sweet, squirm worthy embraces that accompanied every greeting of goodnights.

    In their innocent, playful, somewhat sexy but none offensive way, boy and girl provided us power hugs that became a rallying point for supporters. No two hugs were ever the same. The succeeding ones always outdoing the precedents.

    The power hug during Jenny’s last night had everyone talking the next day. And why not? Who wouldn’t talk about a hug which was followed by such lines as:

    "One more hug.
    Honestly, really kiss me.
    I’m being serious, come back!"

    People began calling that the best ever hug. We thought, “that’s prime time worthy!”

    Unfortunately we didn’t get to see that on prime time.

    But as often proven in this ship, human decisions and discretions are no match for the forces of the universe. The following day, a quick, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment happened at the Confession room. They got a minor, perhaps accidental, prime time moment. Though it was short, more and more people began appearing from everywhere, curious as to what was going on between the Teenternational boy who placed his arm around the Pinoy girl while they were all gathered in the Confession room. “What was that?” TV audience asked.

    And as other people began boarding the ship, they joined us in waiting for the hug that we thought would be hard press to beat the one that took place a couple of nights ago.

    But here comes the boy and the girl surprising us again.

    After the disastrous coffee experience of the two other female housemates, LS viewers saw the tender moment of a concerned boy laying his head on the girl’s lap and asking her over and over again,[highlight] “Are you ok?”[/highlight]


    And as the night drew to a close, and the standard goodnight hugs were given away, boy lying in bed, reached out and pulled surprised girl towards him, for a hug that had everyone of us screaming “Oh my God!” followed by posts after posts of Waaaaaaa in our PEX thread.

    It had all the elements of a power hug. It was sweet, sexy, unpredictable and even had Ivan providing a theme song:


    :note:And I don’t want the world to see me
    Coz I don’t think that they’d understand
    When everything’s made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am.:note:


    Even Kuya was caught off guard, hence the appearance of the infamous PBB Logo that made all of us scream with frustration.

    That had to be the best hug, we all agreed.

    But again we were wrong,

    The night before the final eviction day, we say boy and girl fighting again and again. Like young kids hurting each other during play, we heard boy angrily declare [highlight]“I will never ever touch you again!”[/highlight]


    We saw girl trying to reason her way out but failing, and then blurting [highlight]“I hate you!”[/highlight] before turning around and leaving.

    “Oh no!” we all said. “What about the good night hug? “

    And as we waited and waited, wondering if we will be treated to another one of their anticipated good night hugs, we got our answer. We got our hug. And not just one, but two.

    There was the intriguing back hug, which we first saw at the mirror, followed by the tight, knee weakening embrace.

    We thought we had seen it all. Surely nothing can top that. But of course, boy and girl were not to disappoint.

    During their final night as housemates, with the time fast winding down, everyone thought there were no more hugs to see, that we had seen the last one. But again we were wrong.

    Just as everyone were about to give up, we saw two figures in a tight, quiet embrace in the dark kitchen area, so intimately saying goodnight that we felt like we were intruding.

    At that point we all felt a mixture of emotions. All wondering what tomorrow would bring for the two of them and for the ship which we all had gotten attached to.

    BUt such apprehension was quickly replaced by hope and positive anticipation when we saw the greatest hug of all. Girl running towards the waiting arms of the boy, followed by a beautiful spin reminiscent of a movie slow mo scene.

    And as they hugged, we watched in awe. Joyed by the moment we were witnessing, sad by the coming end, but relieved by the hope it gave all of us.


    While they embraced for the final goodnight as housemates, questions were running through our head, uncertainties were unavoidable, but boy said something that had all of us touched and rejoicing.

    [highlight]
    “F...Forever,”[/highlight]he whispered

    We knew then that the ship’s journey was nowhere near the end...

    And so here we are .

    The Jaevon, the Jade Gems, the Jaders. Whatever name we fall under, we support the same ship. And even though the PBBTC season had come to a close, our numbers continue to rise. Our membership continue to grow. Some people are only recently discovering the the events that took place inside the house. Jaevon was PBB’s best kept secret. Their story was deprived of prime time exposure, and in the process, the viewers were deprived of the chance to know of this heartwarming story. One that was against the odds, against the tide. It was totally unexpected, but beautiful nonetheless.

    But thanks to the forces of the universe, even though we hardly ever were treated to a prime time exposure during the run of the season, we were given a parting gift. As boy was declared the Big Winner, as people rushed to the stage to congratulate and hug him, he reserved the best hug for her. Girl approached boy to greet him, and right in front of the entire crowd, right in front of all the fans and the other love team ships, boy and girl engaged in a tight embrace for all the world to see.

    We finally got the biggest prime time moment of all. And it couldn't have happened at a better time.

    People were surprised, but we weren’t. After all, if there is anything we have learned in this ship we have all grown to love as a family, we should expect the unexpected. Just as Jaevon was something that happened right when people weren’t looking, right when no one expected it.

    And that is why it is so special. It defies the script of the powers-that-be, it follows no specific formula, it is simply what it is - a tandem that grew naturally; a pairing blessed with genuine laughter and endless smiles; a partnership strengthened by an undeniable chemistry and connection; a team that is brightened not by mere sparks, but fireworks.

    And most of all, it is a ship built on a solid rock of friendship and mutual respect between the boy, Robert James Reid, and the girl, Devon May Seron.

    Ehemmm ehemmm.

    Ganito po kasi yun....



    The nice thing po about James and Devon is that although their action is screaming "MERON MERON TALAGA," what's going on between them is mostly unspoken.

    Nagkakahiyaan pa, may dhyahe factor, add to that the pressure from different ships engaged in a tug-of-war, and of course the Bagyo. (you know what I mean. ).

    But all those things only add to the exciting journey that we have to take with these two. Coz really, there's nothing more exhilarating than being constantly kept at the edge with the unexpected moments.

    Kung kelan di natin inaakala, biglang BOOM, hayan na. Kasi nga di sila scripted. Hindi showbiz ang intentions nila towards each other. THey try so hard to keep it in check, but somehow their little gestures and the way they act when around each other or when together, still reveal that the affection is strong and truly present.

    They don't do the things they do para pakiligin tayo; they do what comes naturally. And that's what make them oh so different and oh so special. We hold them close to our hearts because we feel the genuine feelings that exist between theirs.

    It is true nagholding hands po sila. And all those who witnessed it practically went ooh aahh. And it is true that they did so only after they were prodded and asked to.

    You might think na nakakabawas ng kilig kasi nirequest lang pala.

    But that's not where the story ends, kasi po long after the picture was taken. Long after the purpose was attained. The holding hands, the hawak kamay that was supposed to only be for a few seconds, lasted much more than that...


    Because you see... wala nga kasi silang script. They are not following any blueprint or gimik or whatever prepared plan. Though the HH happened because of encouragement from the people around them, what happened after was their own decision. And was therefore, a manifestation of their own feelings.

    Kasi nga, they try hard to act the way mere friends would. Nagkakahiyaan pa, kahit holding hands lang. Kasi nga naman in public. It's different when you do it naturally, somehow it's less dyahe. But when people are around, all eyes on you, syempre, naks naman, nakakahiya. ahahah

    But kasi nga yung set up holding hands, request yun, so nagkahiyaan pa. But what took place after was not part of the plan. And that's what I mean when it's natural. Di na nakaka-conscious. It feels natural. It feels like the way it's supposed to - like they are alone in their own world. Kahit may bantay, kahit may audience. Kahit HINDI NAMAN SILA.










    Her hand in his.

    A perfect fit.

    And everyone who saw them realized something.

    They felt that James and Devon didn't want it to end.















    COming up next. James:[highlight] "You have no idea how much it hurts."[/highlight]

    by PurplePirate Local Gem President

    PART ll..


    Ivan, along with Sam C., AJ, and our dear James, agreed to go to Starbucks after their meeting with the ABS CBN people. Devon was already outside talking to Lj, Naz and the other Loopies. (I'm still not comfortable with this terms. hahaha)

    Ivan invited Devon, and she did go with them. It was James who paid for her drink. (ahmm.... bumi-bf?) There were other kilig moments while they were walking towards Starbucks.

    Imagine this - they were crossing the street, walking as a group.

    Then, James grabs Devon's elbow.

    As she spun around facing him, he placed his hands on her shoulders as they talked and walked, with Devon taking steps backwards.

    What it was they talked about, we can only speculate. The Jaevons who were there wanted them to drink their coffee in peace and chose not to follow. But since we are soco in training, we think it was suyuan moment because of the selosan thingy.

    Devon didn't stay long sa loob ng Starbucks. Her Mom came and they went back to the PDA bldg where Lj, Naz et al were waiting. James and Ivan soon followed. Then the Jaevons told them of the request to have a picture of their HANDS taken. Kailangan kasi for the M&G, so nag request kung pwede kunan yung mga kamay na magka-hawak. That was the request. A picture of the hands ONLY.

    After explaining it to them, pumayag naman sila. But obviously nagkahiyaan pa. Expecially on DEvon's part. And we all know how she is when nervous. She laughs and gets all conscious.

    James was game. Of course. He is THE Mr. James Reid, master of being cool. He can handle holding hands stuff. Piece of cake. haha

    But wait.... bakit parang na-conscious din? Are you turning red, Mr. Reid?

    Ahhh, that's because when there are emotions and feelings involved, hindi ka talaga mapapa I-don't-keh. Di ba?

    Kaya heto na...

    While it was being explained to them, suddenly his mobile phone rang.

    It was Ryan Bang.

    "What do you want?!!" James growled.

    Bakit ka galit DD, disturbo ba si Ryan? Excited ka sa holding hands?


    So finally when the phone call was over, they held hands. Everyone there stared in awe. LOL

    Because you see, dapat simpleng holding hands lang. After all they only needed to take a pic of the two hands clasped together. But noooooo...

    As I have said before never underestimate James and Devon. Di lang basta hands and nagdikit. But also their arms, also their bodies.


    And though what was expected was for them to just hold hands as the picture was taken, what they did was to hold hands the way couples would. Ayieeeeeeeeee Parang mag-bf?

    Nagkakahiyaan pa sa start, but when their hands met, their arms touched, they stood there, unmindful of the people around them. Never mind that people were staring. Never mind that her mother was there.

    And never mind that the picture, the reason for the holding hands in the first place, had already been taken. Tapos na nga eh.

    Even the Jaevon people were caught off guard. It took them some time to snap out of their surprise.

    But who can blame them?

    Romance was in the air, and they all knew it.

    James and Devon, as always, were relishing such sweet, tender moment like they were alone in their own world.



    Sadly though, in the real world, there is such a thing as parental rules.

    And as the girl realized the omni presence behind her, she gently tried to remove her hand from the boy's hand.

    But no...

    He wouldn't let go.

    Her hand belonged there. Enclosed in his.

    And as she tried to pull away, he tightened the grip and acted like he didn't notice her trying to free herself. He was gonna hold it. And that was all there is to it.

    Waaahaahaahaahaaa.


    Suddenly,


    Pakkkk!!!!

    What the heck was that?

    Everyone gasped! No, she didn't! Whaaatt ???

    ("Shyeeett!!! Baliw ba siya? Sasabunutan ko siya eh. Bakit niya ginawa yun?!!!)<
    that's me on the phone, screaming at LJ.


    "Why did she ruin the moment??!!" Everyone screamed silently.

    And as everyone watched, unable to comprehend how in he world she would hit him like that, James looked at his hand that was still resting on hers.



    "Ouch." He said, his voice full of pain.

    "You have no idea how much it hurts."




    Whether he meant his heart or his hand, only he knows.






    To be continued....




    (May kasunod pa po yung kwento so don't despair.)

    Pasensiya na po if it takes a while. I'm just trying to ensure that I
    don't mess up any detail.

    This post is for all the dedicated Loop regulars. Most especially to Lj, who I love like a sister. Thank you for everything.

    PART lll....



    While everyone was shifting uncomfortably because of the "paluan ng kamay" that took place. And all the Jaevons there still recovering from shock, James and Devon stood side by side.

    His hand red. His feelings hurt.

    But like every other story, involving this one of a kind tandem, every tampuhan is very quickly forgotten matapos ang suyuan at nakakakisay na lambingan.

    Remember James' "I will never ever touch you again!" line?
    And Devon's "I hate you!" reply?

    We all know how that night ended. Two hugs! Two never before seen hugs. There was that memorable BACKHUG that seemed to go on forever. And while we sat on the edge of our seats waiting for the camera to show them, we watched their reflection on the wall mirrors, trying to contain our screams of waaaaaaaaaa. Bonus of course was how James brushed off all the other people around them.

    Not satisfied, they separated. Stood up facing the other, setting each other up for a rib cracking embrace that pawned all other embraces before it. It was magical. And it was amazing.

    Kileeegggg!!!!

    Didn't that scene leave all of us breathless?

    And then of course there was that "Usahay" practice tampuhan. She was already reeling from uncertainties, obviously realizing her growing attachment to him, made worse by the practice session that day between James and A--. And even further complicated by his request that she and her companion tone down their noise while they practice. She was in a lousy mood. And alam niyo naman ang mga girls, obvious ba na parang naje-jelly nung time na yun? Kaya hayun, sensitive. PUnta agad ng room. Humiga sa kama, sabay sabing "I hate him! Suplado!"

    Ano nga ba ang nangyari after nun? Marami, may battery changing pa. But let's cut to the chase. There was all that Cahsen talk; and the numerous rejection of a certain someone trying to touch his ears. The "Aren't you gonna punch me?" lambing. And of course the confirmation of what we all knew all along: he likes her dark skin and smile. He's been hinting about it before. Difference is, he said it flat out. Straight. He said it for everyone to hear.

    So this holding-hands-paluan moment is really no different.

    After James said "You have no idea how much it hurts." Devon immediately realizing her mistake, tried to soothe the pained hand. She held it and in between giggles and smiles, attempted to make him feel better.

    He let her do it. And for a moment, the boy was even caught by the onlookers, closing his eyes, clearly relishing her touch against his skin. awwwwww

    And as this was going on, everyone around them were squealing silently, unable to contain the saccharine moment they were witnessing. Parang naglabasan ata lahat ng langgam.

    Pero napalakas ata ang palo. And with his upper class, sensitive, manipis skin, di ata kinaya ng haplos ng pagmamahal.

    But then again, it's not a question of whether the pain in his hand actually went away. It is that which was on his heart that mattered. And as she sweetly tried to make up for her error he was back smiling again in no time.


    You see, the thing about James and Devon is everything just comes so naturally. No pretense, no sugar coating.

    For a while both of them were lost in their own world. They continued holding hands even after the picture was taken. They forgot that they were being watched. It was a beautiful moment.

    They lingered. Enjoyed having each other's hand clasped together.

    We have to understand though that ibang klase po yung bantay ni Devon. Jawo level. And after a while na conscious po siya.

    But she knew she was wrong and was not afraid to admit it.

    Completely aware that she cut short a heart melting holding hand moment, hurting him in the process, she wooed him.

    And in a show of courage, despite the presence of everyone around them, her bantay included, she did the unthinkable.

    In a very touching and awwwwww inducing act, she took the Starbucks frozen drink he bought for her, held his hand, and using the drink as a cold compress, placed it on his pained skin.




    As the night drew to a close, she left with her mother and crossed the street to flag a taxi. He, on the other hand prepared to board Ivan's van, enroute to the "date" that caused the selosan moment.

    And as he was about to board, he cast a glance at her who was already on the other side. He was shaking his head, as she repeatedly said, "Sorry naaa."

    He then raised his hand and yelled "It's bleeding!" lol

    (the hand or the heart? )

    Devon then looked at her Jaevon family. She made a sign that meant "lagot." Her expression was sad. Was it guilt? Probably.

    But knowing James and Devon, and their endless tolerance for each other, this event will be nothing but a conversation topic the next time they meet. And hopefully a source of suyuan at lambingan na naman. Ahahaha

    While the goodbyes and exchanges from the opposite side of the street were happening, the Jaevons watched the scene before them, and wondered, "What would their next meeting be like?" "What will they say and do the next time they see each other?" Ang ending ng eksena kasi ay yung tipong may karugtong pa. Yung obvious na may sequel.

    What suyuan and kunwari-masakit-pa moments will take place?

    We can't tell for sure. But knowing them, we believe it will be something worth looking forward to.

    And yes, we all can hardly wait.











    Let me end this with this LSS, both Lj's and mine.
    We think of James and Devon when we hear this.


    :note:You set it again,
    my heart's in motion
    Every word feels
    like a shooting star.
    I'm on the edge
    of my emotion
    Watching the shadows
    burn in the dark
    And I'm in love
    And I'm terrified
    For the first time
    And the last time
    In my only life...:note:




    I love you all,

    [highlight]"JAMES AND DEVON, AND THEIR JOURNEY TO FOREVER"[/highlight]


    Di ba people initially thought that James was kind of stand-offish? He wasn't exactly Mr. Congeniality. He was polite, friendly and was not at all bothersome, but he was not exactly the kind of person either who the other housemates found easy to mess and play around with.

    Perhaps it was the accent, or the kind of dignity he possessed. He spoke his mind, mabasag na ang mabasag. He was transparent, straightforward and for heaven's sake, drop dead gorgeous.

    Dyahe nga siyang lapitan. Lalo na pag dalagang Pilipina ka.;) But really, who would have thought that the Mr. Robert James Reid would come out of his shell, laugh hysterically, makikipagkilitian, sakalan at kung ano-ano pang kalokohan? Who would have thought?

    Mukhang mahirap paniwalaan. But then again, maybe all it needed was for the right person to come along. The one person who freely gave him her endless smiles, her contagious laugh.

    Sino lang ba ang kayang sumuntok, manghampas, manggulo ng buhok, at kumurot kay James? At sino lang ba ang pinag-aaksayahan niya ng time na kilitiin, suyuin, tanungin ng "are you okay?" Not once, but many times.

    Seriously, once you see the pic below, you ask yourself, who else would James joke around with like this? Who else can make him smile like this?

    Ang sagot? Alam niyo naaaaaaa.....








































    JamesandDevon4.jpg

    Pasigaw langggggg!!!!

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :bounce:

    James and Devon's story never had the benefit of Prime time exposure. Those who relied on the TV episodes are without a doubt oblivious to the blossoming romance that all the LS viewers witnessed. Of course some refused to accept it. But such refusal didn't change the fact that even those people saw it, and hence their rage and bitterness, which in essence really, is a recognition that they themselves acknowledge that James and Devon shared something beautiful while inside the PBB house.

    Nagsimula ang grupong ito because of the sweet little moments na na witness ng mga LS viewers. The number grew, as it became more and more apparent that James and Devon felt something special for each other. No, it wasn't us being delusional. It was us being observant and open minded about this unlikely pairing that happened without warning. It just came out of nowhere.

    And habang nagle-level up sila sa mga actions nila. Dumami na tayo ng dumami.

    Our numbers escalated as soon as the power hugs started happening.

    During Jenny's last night, when James refused to let Devon go, kinailangan pang hilahin siya ni Jenny to release her from James' locked arms. And it didn't end there. May pahabol pang "One more hug... Honestly, really, kiss me... Come back. I'm being serious."

    Did we not all let out a collective scream and swore, "that was the best hug ever!"

    "Nothing will beat that!"

    But we were wrong.

    After the coffee fiasco, after James tenderly asked Devon so many times if she was okay. After he put down his guitar and gently laid his head on her lap telling her that "he can sense" that she was not okay. After he proudly boasted to his friend Bret that Devon's massage felt like she had "God-like hands". After all that... and after we all held our breath and waited for the hugging moment. The very same thing we do night after night. Hoping against hope na hinde maging KJ si Kuya. At sana ipakita ang HUG.

    And we were not disappointed. As she complained that he was too lazy to get up for a hug, he reached out, oh so sensously, and pulled her to him, for a super tight hug that even had Ivan singing

    :note:
    And I don't want the world to see me
    Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am :note:


    And after she kissed him repeatedly on the cheeks, said good night and tried to get up, he tightened the hug. Locked his arms. And James laid there, his eyes closed. Devon in his arms.

    We all watched. Shocked. Even we, the power hug watchers, could not believe what we were seeing. And obviously Kuya felt the same way, coz that beautiful moment was cut short by the infamous PBB logo, that had all of us screaming "Waaaaaaaaa KJ!!!!!!"

    Kaya pa kayang higitan yun? We wondered. Pero paano pa ba yun mahihigitan?

    We got our answer.

    Who can forget the petty LQ?
    The "I will never touch you again" "I hate you" bickering?

    The one which had all of us worried whether we were ever gonna see the anticipated power hug that night.

    But James and Devon were not to disappoint. May pagkatagal-tagal na "back hug" na. May round two pa na super mega higpit na buhat hug. Ayaw talaga pakawalan. Walang pake-alam sa iba. Basta magha-hug sila.

    Kileeeeegggg!!!! kahit sa mirror pa lang nagtitili na tayo!


    The best hug? We said so at that time.

    And once again, we were wrong.

    During the last night of the LS, we witnessed a tender moment in the darkness of a little corner of the house. An intimate, private moment of tight embrace. And as we all watched, we all realized, this was the last night we were ever gonna witnessed the power hugs. The power hugs that became a bonding material for all of us. We all gathered at night, from our respective homes, nag-aabang, waiting, anticipating, not wanting to miss the kilig and super cute hugs. It was a bitter sweet moment not only for them whose journey was coming to a close, but also for us. We loved watching that beautiful hug in the dark, but at the back of our minds, iniisip natin, "what comes after this? is this the last?"

    But again, as proven previously, we really should never under estimate James and Devon.

    The hugs of all power hugs happened. Devon running towards the waiting arms of James. The beautiful spin, that looked like a slow mo from the movies. And the heart tugging embrace, with her telling him "no more massage after this." Obviously trying to lighten up the somber mood.

    Admit it, lahat tayo nag wonder, what's gonna happen after?
    We all had high hopes but let's be honest, lahat tayo may konting fear. Iba ang loob ng PBB House. Iba ang labas.

    We were all hoping, may massage pa ba after? May hug pa ba? Will they go out of the house and continue the beautiful thing they've started inside the house?

    Pero of course, wala naman guarantee di ba? We knew how Devon felt. But James? We were all guessing. We assured ourselves we knew what he felt about her, but none of us were really certain.

    But what he said that night made us believe, that the fairy tale was gonna have a happy ending. Even in the presence of Bret who was watching them. Even while she tried to make the situation humorous. James Reid, the prince charming himself, said the one line that had all of us cheering.


    Softly, gently he whispered "F....forever."

    :love:



    But then, ngayon nasa labas na ng bahay. Naniniwala tayo that they would let the special thing they shared inside the house grow into something even deeper. Our fingers are crossed. Pero ang tanong.... wala na nga bang hugs? Ang hugs na bumubuhay sa thread natin? Ang hugs na nagpapatili sa atin. The hugs that had all of us squeeing collectively, in unison.


    Pero di na tayo natuto. Mali na naman tayo. We thought it was the enclosed environment and the somewhat freedom from parental rules that had them freely hugging each other. We thought kasi nasa labas na, baka di na natin makitang mag-hug. Even if maging sila, baka di na nila gawin sa kung saan makikita sila. WRONG. And I'm happy to be wrong.























































    Kasi nga MERON. Kaya kahit sa harap ng maraming tao. Kahit sa public pa. A goodnight is not complete without a goodnight hug.


    Ganito pala mag-hug ang friends LANG?:glee:

    Let us celebrate friendship. Let us celebrate love. :love:


    JamesandDevon5.jpg

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. :love:


    I wanted to think this over kasi last na. I didn't want to mess it up kasi baka maging anti climactic at ma-ruin yung moment. Hahah


    Anyway, I've been wondering, how come no pictures from the double date at Shangri-La ever floated? But why was the tiniest detail on James' trip to Glorietta documented?

    He wants to go out with Devon. He ALWAYS invites her to the barkadahan na lakad. But other than that, he has also asked her out to a date, where he requested that no one follow them around like paparazzis. Why does he want to take her out, but away from the lunacy of the crowd?

    Has he ever asked any other housemate out on a private date?

    Unlikely.


    Why is it that when James goes malling with Ann, he does not mind the extra company? How come he does not mind all the set up photo shoots, all the picture taking?

    Only James knows the answer.

    But we can analyze. Or at least we can try.

    When we go out with friends, don't we usually take out our cameras and picture away? We pose for candid shots, excitedly have our pictures taken together. But when out on a date with someone special, who the heck wants to have photographers following around? Don't we usually seek privacy? Don't we all want a nice, quiet moment where we can just enjoy each other's company?

    Realize the difference?

    Tanong: Sino ang gf diyan, sino ang kaibigan?


    Oh well....


    Sabi nga nila, sila daw ang pinili di ba?

    "Who is closest your heart?"
    "Honestly.... its Ehnn."


    Ah ok.


    I didn't get to see the Buzz interview. Thank God for the black out which happened right during Devon's turn.

    And when I was informed of what happened through the blow by blow account of Mareng Edz, I sat in my room sadly. And I'm sure everyone of you were just as devastated.

    Bu I did not want to throw in the towel. No way was I going to wave the white flag.

    James Reid was going to redeem himself, I knew.

    Why James answered the way he did that day, we can only speculate.

    Maybe it was the freakin theory that did it. Merong siyang alinlangan kung ano ang nararamdaman ni Devon. And then he found out she was one of those who voted to have him force evicted for being sick.

    And then of course there was the Jamli factor. Them with their giant letters during the Big Night.

    I'm glad I didn't see the interview. I honestly believe my angel spared me. Corny, but true.

    How much did we all invest in this tandem? Not in monetary value, but in emotions. How many felt betrayed? How many felt anger?

    But did he really owe us anything? Did he owe us any explanation? Wasn't it his choice to make?

    Totoo.

    But was it really? His real choice?

    As things unravel. As time passes by. We see the Robert James Reid, as we knew him inside the house. The honest, genuine, king of basagan James Reid, the one with the I-don't-keh with a laugh, to the I-dunno with a shrug lines.

    He who does not keh about clothes, or skin color, or language barriers, or social class disparity. He who would hug Devon unmindful of the cameras. He who would hang out with her despite the questioning look from the others. He who would hold her in his arms, in such a manner that belie what he said in the Buzz.

    Dahil kung totoo yun, bakit sinabi niya sa presscon the following day na ang gusto niya ay dark skinned Filipina? Bakit iba ang ngiti niya when they finally spent a moment alone together during the mystery girl-with-red-bonnet date? Why did he wear the hair tie to the Buzz interview and until the day that someone (annoyingly) removed it from his wrist? Why did he go from saying that he liked the other girl to liking both her and Devon at ELive a few days later? And then saying it with a shy smile reminiscent of that time when he tried to explain why he chose her as the second big winner? Why did he sit there beside Ehnnn during the ASAP chat, looking like he would rather be somewhere else? And of course, why did he do all the things he did, and say all the words he said during the Big 6 Chat?

    Really, why?


    And most of all, why would he hug her in public? With such intimacy that would make all the spectators blush?


    Their goodnight hug wasn't quick. Hindi lang basta hug at bitaw yun. You saw the first pic, there were people walking around them. Nawala na yung mga tao. Naka-hug pa rin.


    It does not take a scientist to figure it out. It is simple really.

    When you feel something special for someone, often times you do not mind the time, you do not mind where you are. You often forget the rest of the world, and only the two of you would matter.

    May sariling mundo sila. Ilang beses na natin yan sinabi. It is a moment like this that make us weak on the knees and turn our hearts into marshmallows. Our collective shriek is replaced by mushy awwwwwwww.

    Coz in a world full of craziness and bitterness and hatred, love is a blessing. And even when it is unspoken, it is hard to deny. It is difficult to ignore.

    Inside the house, the production crew had control on what to show and what not to show. All they had to do was pan the camera somewhere else. Or flash that infamous PBB logo to cut the scenes they didn't want us to see.


    But in the real world, di pwede ang editing. We capture precious moments that speak a thousand words.














































    This is the real world. And we are seeing the real thing.

    Thank God wala ng PBB logo.






    Oooopppps James, huli kayo.


    Bakit ang sweet niyo, di ba di naman kayo?

    by KaRaSan Chapter 1-17

    [crouching-tiger-disappearing-spoiler]

    CHAPTER 1

    Its so easy to spot her, the odd girl out. While everyone in the room were busy chit chatting with one another, there she was sitting all alone, with an open book in front of her. Despite the loud noise her classmates were making, her concentration on the book she's reading never faltered. Until...

    "EEEEEEEEKKKK.. somebody tweeted me. Its official. sila na talaga! They had a press con earlier for their new show and Ann said that she and James Reid are finally together!"

    "TALAGA? well it was bound to happen, I mean they look good together, they're the perfect pair!!!"

    And more comments came after that. There were quite a lot who were very happy with the reel and real pairing of the new IT couple, though there were also others who voiced out their negativity.
    "AS IN? paano nangyari? I mean they're not bagay ha! di ba their movie was a flop. Kasi naman the girl, she's not that pretty.. and di magaling umakting"

    "hay Inggit ka lang. You're just jealous that you can never have JAMES REID!"

    Everyone were so busy that no one even heard the sound of a book being dropped, and no one noticed the pained expression of the girl on the other side of the room.

    Well nobody cares! No one knows! And no one will every know. The girl opened her bag, took out her hanky and dabbed it on the tears that are starting to form. Then she heard her cellphone beeping.

    She took out her phone and saw 3 new messages.

    Bret: Are you OK? This is very unexpected.Do you want to talk?

    Ivan: have you heard? Call me when you get this.

    Yours: You still in class? I need to see you. Pick you up same place same time.

    She read the messages and felt a pang of sadness engulfing her being. Where is that darned professor anyway! She needs him to come in and start teaching them about theorems and algorithms! She needs him here! Needs him to put a stop on all the commotion.
    To tell her classmates to stop talking about THEM!

    But luck was not on her side, minutes passed by and no professor came. Her classmates were still very much engrossed with the lates topic. The women were shrieking with glee some with disbelief.
    She had to leave! She can't bear to hear anymore of this hurtful news. She stood up and got her bag.

    "Guys, una na ako ha. parang di naman kasi papasok si sir eh. 30 mins late na.. Im so hungry punta muna akong canteen"

    "Cge Devon, we will try to follow you in a while. enjoy pa kasi kwentuhan dito!" said Jessica, one of her kaclose sa batch nila.

    She hurriedly left the room and at the back of her mind she's wishedthat no one would find her. She needs to be alone. She needs to find a place of solitude. She has to go somewhere wherein she can cry, and she can shout, and express the unfairness of it all!
    She decided to go to the ladies room on the far end of the building, hoping at this time most students are still attending their classes.
    Pumasok siya sa loob ng isang cubicle. She sat on the toilet bowl then placed her bag down on the floor. She then allowed the tears to flow. She wanted to let it all out but she knows this isnt the right place. So letting go of the tears would have to be enough for now.

    Then her phone started to ring. It was him. She doesnt know what to do. She desperately wants to talk to him. To hear his voice. To be told that everything's not true. But she's also frigging scared. All along, she knew that they're living in two different worlds. Ito na ba ang araw na kinakatakutan niya? The day when he would finally realize that he was better off with someone other than her?
    Her phone kept ringing and ringing and with great reluctance she decided to answer him.

    "Yes?" Sadness was very evident in her voice.

    He was not used to this tone on her voice. He knows her. She's always perky. Her voice is always playful. Its actually one of the things he like about her. And then and there he knew. She already heard the news. He paused and can't seem to think straigt. Can't seem to find the right words to say.

    "Yes?" she said it again exactly the same way.

    " I need to talk to you." He said those words the way he usually says things. Curt and direct to the point.

    "Is it true?"

    "Its complicated."

    "Is it true?"

    "Let's talk. I'll wait for you at my place. Take a cab, I'll leave money with the guard. Im leaving for Australia tomorrow. There's no other time. "Then he ended the call. He knew she would come. He just don't know what and how to tell her.

    I leave the gas on
    Walk the alleys in the dark
    Sleep with candles burning
    I leave the door unlocked
    I'm weaving a rope and
    Running all the red lights
    Did I get your attention
    Cause I'm sending
    All the signs
    That the clock is ticking
    And I'll be giving
    My two weeks

    Pick your favorite
    Shade of black
    You'd best
    Prepare a speech
    Say something funny
    Say something sweet
    But don't say
    That you loved me

    [Chorus:]
    Cause I'm still breathing
    Though we've been
    Dead for awhile
    This sickness has no cure
    We're goin down for sure
    Already lost a grip
    Best abandoned ship oh...

    Maybe I was too pale
    Maybe I was too fat
    Maybe you wanted better
    Better luck in the sack
    No formal education
    And I swore way too much
    But I swear
    You didn't ****ing care
    Cause we were in love

    So as I write this letter
    And shed my last tear
    It's all for the better
    That we end this year
    Let's close this chapter say one last prayer
    But don't say that you loved me

    Cuz I'm still breathing
    Though we've been dead for awhile
    This sickness has no cure
    We're going down for sure
    Already been diagnosed
    So let's give up the ghost

    [Chorus]

    oh... I'm still breathing
    I'm still breathing

    CHAPTER 3

    It was the longest elevator ride of her life. He's up on the 40th floor. A floor away from the Penthouse. Well what do you expect? He always had a priviledge life. His dad made sure of it. Even before he went inside the famous house where they first met, he already have a place of his own, his own car, and other things that most people would only dream about.
    He went inside the house mainly for the experience, and to meet friends, he left with much much more!

    She was glad that the elavator is taking its time. She's not ready to face him yet. Not ready to hear the bad news. And the worst thing of all the real reason why she's taking all the time in the world is because She is not ready to lose him! She is not ready to let him go! She looked on and saw that she's already on the 30th floor and each floor going up brings her closer to what she dreads the most!
    A life without him.

    Thinking about the past made her smile, who would have thought that the Bubbly girl from Cebu, a girl that came from such modest upbringing would catch the eye of the Australian hunk. She didnt know when it started. She was just there minding her business. Trying to enjoy the company of the housemates.

    She noticed him of course. Who wouldnt? With his boyish good looks, his fun loving ways, and the accent to boot! But whatever attraction she felt for James, she kept to herself. What's the point? There are far more pretty girls in the house. Attractive girls like Tricia, and Ann whom he can clearly communicate with. Girls who have the same background as he does.

    Looking back, she can still remember that at that time she tried to stay away from the teenternationals except for maybe Bret and Ryan. Bret because he can speak her dialect, and Ryan with his funny antics is so hard to ignore. There was a language barrier, not because she doesnt really understand what their saying. But mainly because she cant relate to what they're talking about.

    Everyone knows she came from a poor family. What little money her parents get are used for their basic needs and education. So when her housemates would talk about malling and clubbing and shopping and all those restaurants they've been with, she would just smile and nod and feign interest. But she can never take part with such conversations.

    She stopped reminiscing about the house on the 37th floor. Three more floors, and then she would see him again. Dub dub dub her heart is saying. This meeting would be different. Different from the past meetings that they had. It won't be like those sweet and happy moments theyve shared na malayu sa mapanuring mga mata ng tao.

    Chapter 4

    He was in his room, staring into space, waiting for the bell to ring. She's on her way up, she said. In a couple more minutes he'd finally see her again. Last they saw each other was a week ago. During his birthday. Technically, it was the night before his birthday. He didnt expect that she's made a gesture as big as that.
    He knew she was busy with her school work. And she knows that he was busy taping for a new show. They never made plans. He didnt make any plans. All he wanted for his birthday was to spend it with her. But he knew he can't do that.
    He knew there will be hell to pay if people would know that he, Robert James Reid, the one part of the phenomenal JAMLI spent his 19th birthday not with his "better half".

    How his life had changed. Two years ago when he decided to join the big brother house, he never wanted fame. He was bored with his life. Being home schooled was lonesome. All he did back then was to go out, have fun. Then that fateful day came when someone saw him walking around GLORIETTA, his manager now.
    What happened?He was a plain guy back in Australia, but when he moved to the Philippines, how his life have changed. People see him as extra ordinarily good looking. People look back when they see him. Girls clamor for his attention.

    Even inside the house, with good looking men like Jack, Bret, Ivan, Patrick and the rest. he still feels that a lot of women housemates liked him. Except her.
    She was different. She tries so hard to be at the sidelines, except when there are tasks given to them, then you can really see how she shines. He didnt really notice her at first. What with Tricia being there. All eyes were on Tricia! She was pretty and tall and always teh center of attention. She was always around to talk to him. Then there was ANN, the girl whose life mirrored his own.
    Ann was fun to talk to. They have a lot of things in common. They've been to the same places, done the same things. It was easier to talk to Ann because she understands. Understands how it is to grow up with one parent. How lonely life could be.

    The day he notice Devon though was the day his life changed forever. It was the day she and Tricia had to celebrate their birthdays. He never took notice of Devon, didnt really know she existed. She's the girl with the great voice. Thats all he knows.

    Funny and perverted as it sounds, she got his attention when he accidentally saw her changing in the girl's bedroom. And then the ball started rolling after that.
    Where is she? She supposed to be here by now? James doesnt know what to do with the mess he's in right now. Even his dad, the person whose opinions he respects the most, can't seem to give him any advise.

    He knows that everything is his fault. It couldve been so easy! He knows what he wants, He knows who he wants to be with. So why be in this mess? Three more years and she'll be done with school. He could still catch up. Leave the lime lights! He doesnt need the money, He sure as hell doesnt need the fame.
    Like everyone else, he was also surprised when he became the big winner. Still can't get it even up until now.

    He was very reluctant to join show business. At 17, he feels he doesnt really have the heart for it. He didnt really care about performing. It's embarrassing to be singing and dancing in national television. And what made it worst are the fans. They are everywhere. He knows he should be happy to have adoring fans swarming over him, but sometimes it could be crazy as hell.

    Then the management told them that they will have their own show. A teen show featuring if not all but most of the Pbb teens. He wasn't too sure about it but a contract is a contract.

    And then came the first shooting day. He was the last one to be shot that day. He was busy observing all his friends playing their own characters. It was so funny and nerve wrecking at the same time.

    Then it was his time to deliver his lines. When the lights came on and the camera started to roll, he heard Direk Lauren said Action. And the rest is history. Because in acting he found his niche, he found his passion. For James Reid, whom at 17, doesnt have clear direction in life , finding happiness in acting in front of the camera, was as surprising and as unexpected as falling for the Bubbly Girl from Cebu


    Chapter 5

    With a heavy heart she stepped out of the elevator. She turned left and saw the door to his pad. Is his dad around? Would someone else witness how her world would tumble down? She walked and stood staring at his door. Tawagan ko ba sya? Itxt? should I ring the bell? These and other thoughts are running through her mind.

    Last week when she came here her mood was different. She was so excited to spend that day with him. It was his 19th birthday. She knows that they can't go out. So what she did was plan a surprise party for the special man whom she owes so much.

    It was their first. First time to spend a special occasion together. Last year on his 18th birthday, he had to spend it with HER and their fans. They had a shooting on location and their fans were with them. James had to stay there for 3 days. Gusto nya talagang pumunta. But she knows, if a single fan would see kahit shadow lang nya. Things will fall down. Babalik sa dati. And the life of anonymity that she is living now would crumble into pieces. So nagparaya ***. But next year would be different, she vowed.

    So four months before Nov 11 2012 she asked him for a special day for them to spend together. She asked him to give her his birth day. He said yes and promised her, but like any other promises, he called 2 weeks ago. Hindi na rin pwede. His mom and her family asked him to spend his birthday with them. He had no reason to say no. So they compromised. A couple of hours on the eve of his birthday.

    She planned every single detail. May flowers ba o wala, his favorite food that she will cook, pati gift na ibibigay. She invited the three people who knows the truth about them. It was a very special affair. Bret and Fretzie came so did Ivan. That night was the best. It was a reunion of sorts. Full of laughter, reminiscing about the past, and the best of it all, they can be as sweet as they want to without a care in the world.

    Walang mapanghusgang tao. No one snickered at her just because James was touching her shoulders. No one would post hurtful comments just because they are smiling together. The three special people with them knew the real score and they never judged them.

    Her thoughts came to abrupt halt when the door suddenly open, then she saw him. Saw the man who stole her heart almost two years ago. The man who changed her life for the better. The man with whom she vowed to love forever. The man who, in probably less than a minute, would break her heart and world to pieces.
    Chapter 6

    "Why didn't you ring the bell?"
    "How did you know Im already here?"
    "Come in!"

    With great reluctance she slowly stepped inside. Her head was down and can't seem to look at him. Deep inside her nerves are in shambles. She desperately wants to hug him, to look at him, look at his eyes and be able to read his thoughts.
    She needs him to hug her, to look at her, look at her eyes and be able to read her thoughts.

    "Sit down, dyo want anything?"

    The dread that she was feeling earlier came back. He was never this formal to her. He was her DD, always sweet and funny. Heck, he had always been very playful with her. He was serious with everyone, but with her he's different. He's not afraid of opening up. Of showing his wacky side. Yes, he is serious at times, If the situation calls for it. But never this tone, So formal, so lacking of emotion.

    She slowly look at him. " Tell me its not true!"
    "Please settle down."
    "How could you James? You promised me it wouldnt come to this?"" Ann still doesnt know right?" ANSWER ME!!!"
    "You dont understand. Things are very complicated right now. This is just for show!"
    She stared at him in disbelief.. "For show? If this is only gimmick. then how come she still doesnt know about us? Ba't di mo o pa masabi sa manager mo? or sa family mo?" I know her, if she knows that Im still in the picture she wouldnt allow for this to happen."
    "Then that's your answer." he said trying to stay calm." I cant tell her yet because if I do then things will change. I havent proven anything yet Devon! My career is still rocky. I have made a mark mainly because of the team up.""Its whats keeping me afloat in the business."
    "That's Bull and you know it!"" So now what's your plan?" String the both of us along?"" I don't know if I can accept that James." When you told me your plan, I went along with it, because i know how much you love what you're doing. But do you honestly think I'm happy to be always sneaking around?" AND now this?"
    "Look, can you see it my way?"
    " SEE IT YOUR WAY? Ive been trying to see it your way for the longest time!""When you said you had to tobe sweet her, my heart broke but I accepted it, because of YOU!!!" But now, you honestly courted her and she said yes and your now together and everyone knows.. and AKO! ME, Im still the same 3rd class citizen!!""I'm still the same plain Devon who has no right to stand beside you!!!"
    "MM dont say that! Stop your hysterics."" Please to reason, PLEASE!!!".
    "James, Ive worked so hard and is still working hard so I can be deserving of you." For the past year and a half, all i did was to improve myself so that when the time comes that you're ready to tell the world about us, I can be .""But it seems all these are for nothing." And with a resigned fate she sat down. With tears streaming from her eyes.


    He looked at her, Looked at the girl he was in love with, a girl he vowed to protect. But he can't protect her now. He can't shield her from the pain she was feeling. The pain he inflicted on her. Because he made a choice.

    When his manager told him that he's losing a lot of supporters because of the new up and coming love team, He panicked. His manager said that people's interest on JAMLI are waning because their sweetness is not enough. He decided then and there to save the career he has worked hard to build.

    He started being extra sweet to ANN. He told her he has feelings for her. And thats the opening that she has been waiting for. When he told Ann about liking her ann immediately said she liked him back. And that's how they became "officially" an Item.

    "M, look at me, please you know I can't bear to see you cry." He went to her, knelt in front of her and touched her arm,
    " James, when will I ever be good enough for you? When will I ever be good enough for your fans? What else do I have to do?"

    Chapter 7

    " James, when will I ever be good enough for you? When will I ever be good enough for your fans? What else do I have to do?"
    He looked at her with deep regret in his eyes. He heard the question, and dont know what to say. He has no answer for her. He;s frustrated. Life is never fair. Why can he never be completely happy?
    Devon is now crying silently. Tears are flowing so hard and all she wants was to lay down and sob. Gusto nyang maglupasay sa sagit dahil sa sakit. But she tried to control herself. He is seeing her cry but she wiont give him the satisfaction of witnessing how her world is crumbling down.

    "M, please, you know how much I love you."
    "Do you really love me James? Di ba love is making someone happy? Eh with what you're doing parang you despise me so much!""So ano? Ganito na lang ako forever?"" Your closet Girlfriend? And then 10 years from now? Ill be your closet mistress?"
    Let's face it girlfriend mo na siya ngayon, It might be pretend on your part but not on hers. When youre alone she expects for you to kiss her, to hug her, and then what? You'll sleep with her next. You'll get married then because that's what the fans and everyone expects from you!"

    "Devon your imagination is getting the best of you."

    "If I accept this situation, and sit back and let you do your thing. Can you promise me that you will neer touch her? that you won't kiss her? that you won' hold her?"

    His silence was the death of her. She knows that his answer would be. They both know. But how can she accept the situation? Kahit nga before na the set up was for him to be a sweet and to date her, ang sakit na. Eh ngayon pa na sila na. And maybe it was for publicity on his sake, pero how about her? Devon and the rest of the world knows that Ann has been in love with James even when they were still inside kuya's house. And when they got out, even if she knew that James liked Devon, hindi *** bumitaw. Never lost hope that someday James would shift her feelings towards her.

    And its seems luck was on her side. When James got out of the house there were a lot of JAMLI fans who are desperate to get them together. The Jamli's are said to be the main reason why James became big winner. The Jamli's were everywhere!!
    They befriendly his family, his friends, sent him gifts, the fan base spent a lot of money, just to ensure that James and Ann would be paired sa mga shows.

    "So ayaw mo na?" He asked. He completely want' to fight for her. But how can he, when he has not proven to his fans, his manager, and most especially his Dad, that he is something. When he started acting and realize this is what he wants to do in life, he thought everything else will follow. But it didnt.

    A year and a half after joining the biz, he still has nothing to be proud of. He is still one half of a pair. What more, giving up right now is not an option. He promised his dad that he will be something! He can't give up on that promise.

    But would chasing his dream means giving up the one person who makes him complete?

    Looking at her, he feels so guilty. He knew he wasnt fair to her, he never was. She had given up too much for him. She had let go of a lot of things and a lot of people for him. She chose him. And it seems that now, when the tide has turned, when its his time to decide, He can't choose her.

    Chapter 8

    How it all began. People would probably think that their love story started inside the PBB house and they are partly right. That's where they met, its where those singing and guitar lessons starter. Its where they did their first massages. They grew close there.
    But their closeness went to an abrupt halt when they left BB's house. They didnt have the chance to see each other aside from the guestings and shows they had to attend. The closest to a hanging out that they had was when he went with her, Ivan and Fretzie watch Toy Story 3.
    Blame it on her mom who's overprotective, or the fact that she's not really that comfortable hanging out with her well off housemates that seems to be with him all the time.
    Nag effort rin naman si James to invite her during the get together, even to a point of offering to pick her up. But she was so busy spending time with her family that she haventt seen in almost 4 months. So she would always refuse.
    She invited him once, one Sunday to go out with her and their followers, but he was busy at that time. She never invited him again. She heard nga that he was always spotted with Ann. they were always together. Pictures and videos of them are all over the internet.
    So Devon tried to let go of her feelings. Well its better this way. She can concentrate on what she really needs to do. For herself. For her family.
    Then came that fateful day. Two weeks after their Wowowee guesting. She received a message from her handler asking her to go to ABS. She knows this is about the teen show that she auditioned together with Pbb friends last week.
    Her friends, Fretzie and Tricia got the same message. Devon knew that she got really lucky. This is the big break she had been waiting for. If this works out, she can finally help her family. She can put her sisters back to school.
    This is the reason why she joined PBB in the first place. To have a shot, maybe not at stardom, but the chance to earn enough money to provide her family especially her sisters better opportunities in life.
    She was so excited that night. Tomorrow she will go to ABS, will meet Tricia and Fretzie and the rest. And tomorrow might be the start of something great!
    She was right yet so wrong!!

    Chapter 9

    They were ushered inside the conference room. Devon came early, Fretzie and Tricia picked her up. Ang ingay ingay nila sa Taxi. They were all excited about the meeting today. They all know, that today would be a start of of a long and hard journey. The journey to achieve their dreams.
    "Hala, ba't tayo pa lang tatlo? Excited much? Tricia quipped. They decided to stay on one side of the huge conference room. There were some sets of sofas all around and they picked the one farthest from the door.
    Fretzie :Buti naman yung una tayo. At least we can see who would come in next.
    Tricia: Ui..excited to see Bret!
    Fretzie: Dili man! We talk baya all the time so why should i be excited.
    Devon: HALA!! SAKPAN KA! hahahah.. pero imagine ha.. Bret's is now a certified VJ..Is it true that hsi contract got extended.
    Fretzie: yeah he was so happy about it gani. Extended for year. He's doing good man. Kita mo outside. And early ng mga fans noh?
    Tricia: Bitaw, mura mag buang mga JAMLI ui.. hahaha.. Gisnub jud mi ni Devon! HAHAHA.
    Devon: Hayaan mo na sila. Basta Im so happy today. Hindi ako nakatulog masyado kagabi.
    Tricia: Hoi you lost a lot of weight lagi.. MAKASUYA! HALA INLOVE! hahahahaha..
    Devon: WHAT? NGANO KA?
    Tricia: Di na makakain. Di na makatulog. Sa kakaisip kay JAMES! hahahahhahaha
    Fretzie: HALA!!! TRUE!! hahahaha. Selos ka masyado kaya ka namayat noh?
    Devon: waaaaaah.. Wag ganyan ui! Crazy man mo duha. Wala Ui. Friends ra man mi ni James. Sila siguro ni Ann. Kamo ni manman Trish mustah? uiiiiiiiiiii!
    Tricia: hahaha.. Funny.. you know what we have is purely business. You all know the whole story! Hehehe. Pero is James and Ann and Item na? Sige man sila together.
    Devon: Asked them ui. Basta ako I dont care!
    Fretzie and Tricia: Bitter!! HAHAHAHAHA
    Their laughter was suddenly cut off when the door opened and all the other teens who will be part of the show came in.
    Devon looked up to see who were there. And then her eyes met his, the dark haired Dashing dude from Australia, and her world seemed to stop, and so did his!

    CHAPTER 10

    He wasnt really that excited about the meeting today. He's tired. He had a late night with his friends from Australia. And waking up early was his least favorite thing to do. The fun and excitement of being in the limelight is starting to wane off.
    People notices him everywhere. They take his pictures all the time. A lot are gutsy enough to approach him and ask for a kiss or a hug. It was fun at first. But its getting irritating as days pass by.
    He misses the anonymity. He misses going to malls and being left alone. When he moved to the Philippines, people do stare at him. But thats all they did.
    Waking up so early was a drag but he's hoping it would all be worth the sacrfice. Then he realized that she would be there. And his face lit up.
    He cant wait to see her. Can't wait to talk to her. Hell. he even misses her hitting him.
    When he arrived in ABS, the fans were already there. It was a big puzzle to him how the fans knew their day to day events. He looked at the mirror yawned and then practiced his usual smile.
    He saw Ann with the a group of Jamli's on their way to his car. He got out and then looked around, trying to find out if she has arrived. He saw a group of Jaevon fans seated in one corner of The Loop, they looked at him and smiled. He waved at them and then smiled back. He saw the banner that they brought and his smile grew bigger.
    "JAMES JAMES ANN ANN!! JAMLI JAMLI! JAMLI!" And then all the commotion started.
    Ann went to him and smiled." Let's go inside." He knew she would be touching his hands so he turned around and started walking towards the entrance.
    "Jamessssssssss.. JAMESSSSSSSSS. ANNNNNNNN.. PICTURE NAMAN!!! PICTURE PLEASE..." AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.. JAMESSSS> JAMLI!!!!!!!!!" He forced a smile and posed for their cameras.
    EEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!! KILIG!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!! Their voices are too loud he wants to turn around and leave!!! but he knows he can't. He owes these people a lot. They are the major reason why he is here.
    His sister Lauren told him when he got out of the house that JAMLI's spent a lot so he can become big winner!
    Then he saw Bret and Ryan and the rest.
    Ryan: James! there you are. Sorry I didnt make it last night. I had a lot of school work to finish.
    Bret: Man, were finally here, have you seen Fretzie?
    James: haha.. You're completely smitten man! You still into Fretzie despite all the girls youve met at all the MyX parties that you went to?
    Bret: haha.. Crazy! That will never change!
    Ryan: Jenny, Ann, where are the girls?
    Ann: I don't know. I heard Tricia is already inside, with fretzie and Devon.
    Aside from the big 8, James also saw, Jack, Patrick, Joe and Kazel. They moved towards them with a gleeful smile on their faces.
    They were chit chatting all the way to the 5th floor where the conference room is. James can't stop anticipating. He cant really wait to see her again. The door opened and when he walked inside he saw the three girls sitting together on the far end of the room. With smiles on their faces they looked up. And for James the world stopped. There she was. The one person who made him feel. The girl whom he knows can rock his world. Devon May Seron, the Bubbly girl from Cebu.

    Chapter 11

    James followed Bret and Ryan to where the girls were. He can't seem to stop looking at her. She lost a lot of weight, he noticed. She was wearing this blue flowery dress that accentuates her dark skin. That's one of the things he liked so much about her.
    " Hey, how are you guys? Kanina pa mo?" Bret was asking them.
    James went to her side, touched her arms and looked at her.
    James: Devon, where have you been hiding?
    Devon: Here and there.. hahaha.. UI im just home all the time. Ikaw! you're always out!hahaha
    Bret: Hala Devon Selos!! hahaha.. Kung sumasama ka naman kay James pag iniinvite ka!
    She can't think of any smart retort to reply to that. So she just laughed at dahil sa sobrang tense niya nahampas niya si James.
    James: WHoooW.. I missed that! hahahaha
    Everyone started laughing and nobody noticed that James already took Devon's arm, he looked at her and smiled then led her to where they were sitting earlier.
    James: What have you been up tp?
    It was a simple question but she cant seem to answer.
    Devon: Wala lang. Stay at home all the time. Ikaw, youre everywhere!
    James: Why won't you go out with me? Why dyo always refuse when I invite you out.
    Devon: I wanna go but my place is too far and my parents they don't want me going out that much.
    James: Youre such a spoil sports. Were eating out later, join us please! Ill be the one to ask permission from your mom.
    Devon: My GOD nooo!! hahaha.. Ill ask her.
    James: I miss your massages.
    He said it almost in a whispery voice it was a miracle that she actually heard it. She wanted to smack him but dont want people to notice them that she looked at him and smiled.
    Devon: I miss massaging you too.. hehehe
    There were a lot of people in that room, but for the two of them, parang sila lang ang tao, di lang sa room na yon, bat sa buong mundo.


    CHAPTER 12

    James cant sleep. He knows he had an early fight tomorrow. He can't wait to go to Australia. Its been a year since he last saw his sister Lauren. He badly needs her now. He needs to talk to someone who can help him see light of the mess that he's in.
    Is it really over? He can't accept that everything will end this way. He still cant get it to his head that she left just like that. Everything is too hazy. He knows he is at fault. He cant blame her. No one can!
    Devon has sacrificed too much for him. Gave up a lot so she can be with him, secret it may be.
    HE then looked back that time three months after leaving Pbb house, they were given the chance to do a teen show together with the other housemates. It was about several teens whose lives were intertwined because of a band. It was a sweet and simple story that launched all their careers.
    The teen show brought them far more recognition than they already have. They were all over. TV guestings, Mall Shows, Magazine Covers, they almost had it all.
    Devon gained more supporters and those fans who hated her started to grew soft on her. They noticed her talent and attitude, so as days went by there were less and less fans who were bashing her online.
    It helped that James was paired with Ann. Although they had to work really hard to finally get the much needed onscreen chemistry that they lacked at first. The JAMLI's who were very vocal at disliking Devon were now starting to see her with a different light.
    The Jaevon's are growing stronger, getting more and more fan base. The same name but different personalities. Because Jaevon is no longer James and Devon but Jack and Devon.
    They were the love team on the show. Their pairing was surprisingly effective. And the love story of a rebelious probinisyana and a straight laced rich korean hunk was highly anticipated.
    And then out of the blue, without any reason, something happened. An event that still puzzles everyone up until now. Devon, the rising star suddenly quit. No explanations. She just said she has had enough. She left the limelight. Left her fans. Left the life that she has always wanted.
    James knew why. Aside from her, he was the only one who knew why she left if all. He asked her to. Begged her. So they can be together. And she chose him!


    CHAPTER 13

    She can't stop crying. It was past midnight last she checked. Things are completely hanging by a thread. She left not knowing what's ahead. No reassurance, not even closure.
    She left crying because she doesnt wanna say things she might regret. She badly wanted to hurt him the way he is hurting her. Pero when she looked at him, with his head bowed down and eyes closed, she realized that he was in pain too. So she left.
    Leaving was probably the best and worst thing that she did. Pero she was scared. Scared of what will happen if she stayed. Eto na ba talaga? Would this mark the end of her happy days?
    True, being in a secret relationship with one of the most popular teen star was not an easy ride, they had more problems than most normal couples have. They had to adjust more, and the biggest downside, was that they had to always sneak around.
    But she has promised him her love, promised him that she will hold on. At least it wasnt a one way street, because James made her feel that she truly is special.What he lacks in time,he more than made up for it when they were together. He has given her far too much. And aside from his love he gave her the best thing she couldve hoped for. He may not be able to tell the world about them, but to the one person who mattered most he did, He introduced Devon to his Dad as his girlfriend.

    Pero was everything really worth it? The pain she is in now encompasses all the physical pain in the world. How did it come to be? She left kuya's house full of hope, now two years later, she had none.


    The meeting with the ABS executives was a happy affair. Everyone in that room were ecstatic because they were all part of the new teen show that would change the filipino teens viewing habit.

    Devon, though a bit disappointed was still feeling extremely lucky. Yeah she was not paired with James, he got Ann, but she would be part of the show which is what she completely wanted. Fretzie got paired with Bret, Ivan with Tricia and yung iba were left without any .

    Those like her who were not given pairs had to join a series of workshop that would determine their roles and their partners.

    She was completely taken aback when she was paired with Jack. Yeah, he was her first chin kiss, and she think he is nice in an older brotherly kinda way. But the other people saw something she couldnt.

    Then came the first shooting day for their teen show, and she was very excited, they all were. She read the script a week ago and was glad to get a very nice role. Still a bit disappointed that she was not paired with James, but her main focus now is to work and work for her family. ANd Jack was not a bad second. After they were paired together they grew a little bit closer. He would always joke with her, sometimes compliments her and though they dont really have that much things to talk about, she still enjoys his company.

    Tricia : Ui Devon, I heard the good news. Haha.. Partner jud mu ni Jack! BAGAY!!!
    Devon: Haha.. Lagi, I read the script last week nice man noh?Pero still cant get over that I will be paired with Jack!
    Tricia: Yeah, Its like Im playing myself ra jud! Wont requie too much effort on my end. Fretzie: Yeah bitaw, My role too. it hits clsoe to hom!. Im a goody goody girl. Devon, SUS if I know you wanted to be paired with DD!
    Devon: hahaha.. NOOOOOOOOOOOO.. Im sure he's happy with Ann.
    Tricia: Unya are you happy???
    Devon: HAHAHA.. CHISMOSA!!!Ako shock jud ko. Im playing a rebel probinsyana.. Weird..then me and fretzie are cousins.. hahaha.. can you imagine?

    They were so into their conversation that they didnt notice the three guys looking at them.

    Jack: Man we missed you last week. I didnt really thought I would want to join showbiz but the experience last week was a blast. I didnt know Devon could be so cool. And man ang ganda niya!
    Bret: Oh jumaJavon!!! Heard youre being paired up with her.. Well at least the Jaevon's wont have to change their names di ba James?
    Jack: Yeah I am so glad. You all know I really wanted to be paired with Yen, but I dont know what happened. Oh yeah I do know. Devon happened.
    Bret : Im just glad Im being paired up with Fretzie, and James you and Ann.. JAMLI's are going crazy.
    James didnt bother to offer a reply. He just gave his curt smile and looked at the girls. Devon was so pretty that time. He was still mad why they were not paired together. Ann was ok. But Devon wouldve been a better choice. Then there's this thing with Jack.
    Of all people to be paired up with, why Jack. He looked at him and saw him looking at the girls, looking at Devon. He saw the interest in his eyes. And that made him want to punch him out. He knows he has no right to her. But he cant help it. He Robert James Reid is jealous!

    Chapter 14

    He did not sleep a wink. He looked extremely tired and his dad noticed it. But now is not the right time to tell him what's bothering him. He has a flight to Australia to catch. He took the earliest flight hoping that the fans wouldnt be there to bother him for once.
    His dad drove him to the airport. He checked in first and though it was not boarding time yet, the flight attendants were so nice to allow him to get into the plane first. His wish was not granted. Outside there were probably 50 fans shouting his name.
    He went inside the plane walked to the first class wing and sat then he took out his Ipad, turned it on, put in his password and saw her. He saw them. It was that time in Tagaytay. The picture, his wallpaper, was taken that fateful night, a year and a half ago. That was the night he promised to love her, to be with her, to hold on to her no matter what, and to make her happy.
    Yet last night, seemed to be a night of broken promises.
    Is this really the end? She just left lastnight tears in her eyes without any goodbyes. Would it be the last time he would see her? Would last night be the end of their bittersweet journey?

    It was a month after the launching of "Meant to Be", everyone were deliriously happy. They are number 1 for 3 straight weeks. Everyone was crazy about them. They were all invited everywhere. They had more guestings than their time could permit them to.

    The best thing was that they were all friends, having fun and earning big bucks at the same time. Its was just like being inside Kuya's house except that at the end of the day they would have to go their own beds, their own homes. Their exposures may not be equal, but who cares. Everyone were on tv. And even the likes of Joe and Eslove have followers of their own who were crazy about them.

    JAMLI, TRIVAN, BRETZIE and JAEVON's now have their own solid followers. The fans have now accepted each pairings and forums like PinoyExchange and sites like Facebook and twitter are somewhat peaceful. No more fan wars. No more bashings. Everyone was living a peaceful existence supporting the love team of their choice.

    James finished his shot first and saw Bret, Ryan and Jack in one corner. He saw Jack took something out from his bag and showed it to Bret.

    James cant seemed to stop himself from disliking Jack. For James, Jack is always acting so full of himself. He was always with Devon, bringing her stuff, laughing with her, sometimes touching her, and that James new is the main reason why he doesnt like Jack.

    He looked at Devon and saw that she was alone, he really wanted to talk to her. He misses her smile, her laughter, even they way she hits him. It seemed like these days all those are meant for Jack. He checked around and saw that Ann and the girls were nowhere, and looked at her again. She looked up and saw him staring and smiled. This was his chance!

    James: Hey, Im done with my shoot. Where's everyone.
    Devon: Didnt they tell you? They had to shoot in another studio. You want to sit?
    James: No I like to stand here and just stare at you. I missed you. You're always with Jack!!!
    Devon: Hahaha.. Well, Uhmmm, Were friends.
    James: Devon I want a massage.
    Devon: hahaha.. No massage! or me first then Ill massage you.
    James: Ok let's go to my Van, the driver is there
    Devon: hahaha.. NOOOOOO.. (with hampas sa arms ni DD) haha.. Ill sit you stand then massage my back.
    James: Are you gonna have your operation soon?
    Devon: My savings are not yet enough. But Im hoping I could do it soon.
    James: How about school? Hey remember when I said we'll go to the same college together. Any college of your choice. That's still on ok?
    Devon: Haha. Pass your Aussie exam first, then pass the UPCAT, I told you right I deferred my enrollment there for a year.

    James was busy touching her back, massaging her if you call it. He really misses this! Then he saw Jack approach them.

    James: You're boyfriend is coming.
    Devon: (Hampas ulit) Don't be stupid. Hehe

    James didnt like the way she smiled. It was like the smile she gives out when Bret, Ryan and Ivan would tease the two of them. The smile of secret mystery. His heart was thumping and he doesnt like what he is seeing.

    Jack: James stop touching her.. hahahha.. let me do it.
    Devon: NOO ui im ok. Done done done.
    Then she looked at James, touched his arm, smiled and then said I owe you a massage!


    Chapter 15

    James, Bret,Ryan and James were at Starbucks waiting for the coaster that will bring them to Cavite. The girls were still inside getting their hair done. First time that they will shoot on location. Everyone will be there. And the best thing is that they just got their first paychecks yesterday.
    When James saw how much he earned for the month. He could'nt believe it. One of the perks of being part of showbiz. People probably wondered if he got his prize already. He hasnt. But he will. In a month's time, the management promised. The Big6 will finally get their monetary prize in a month!
    He's excited for the Asian Tour. He knows who he wanted to bring, but he doesnt want to have high hopes. Knowing how the fans would react. How her mom would probably react. So he asked his dad to come along. It would be the first time in months that he will have a week long break. He cant wait.
    Jack entered with a big smile on his face. He approached them and said.
    Jack: Man dyo know what I did for my first paycheck? I spent it all!! hahaha..
    Bret: Oh really? I asked my mom to put mine in the bank. I really want to save man.
    Jack: Well, I saw this really great gift which is quite expensive, and I cant help myself. I bought it then and there.
    Ryan: oh prechent? Is it for me?
    Jack: hahaha.. Here look.
    Jack took out a small box and opened it. There inside is a neclace made of gold with a butterfly pendant. Jack asked them to look closely. And James saw what he wanted them to see. On each side of the butterfly wings, there engraved are the Letters J and D.
    Bret: WOW!!!!!! NICE.. Is this what I think It means? J&D? Level up ka na ha!
    Jack: Guys I tell you, she is perfect. She's cool. Beautiful, Nice. Im so into her.
    Ivan. Oh man, that looks expensive.
    Jack: She's worth every penny! Ive been thinking things through and I'll propose to her. Tomorrow. I want her to be my girfriend man. I cant wait. I can feel that she likes me too. She's liking me more and more everyday.

    They were busy talking about Jack's plan nobody noticed that there was one guy in the group who kept still and was deadly quiet. James Reid is losing time, and he needs to make a plan.

    The shoot was over and everyone was tired. They had a long travel back to the loop because of the heavy traffic. Bret noticed that James have been quiet since morning but didnt voice out his observation since he was tired himself.
    The boys were sitting in the first two rows, napping, The girls though tired are still chitchatting.
    Tricia: Three month na pala tayo next month! we will be renewing contracts di bah?
    Devon: Yeah, bitaw noh! time flies so fast when youre having fun jud. Hay I hope marenew jud ako contract. Second sem is coming and my sisters are all going to school.
    Ann: Yeah sure ko ui that out contracts will be renewed. Nice baya ang reviews. And number 1 pa jud!
    James was just sitting there listening, thinking, what to do. what to do? If Jack would propose tomorrow, would Devon say yes? Most likely not. But he can never be too sure.

    Then were already in the loop and everyone was so tired they all wanted to go home.
    James:I brought my car guys. Im off to Caloocan, Im really tired but Im meeting my mom there. She's at some relatives. Who's on my way?
    Joe: Kami pare on the way. Sama na lang kami ni Eslove sa yo. Tsaka Devon. Kunin ka ba ng Mama mo?
    Devon: OO. sabi ko txan ko *** pag pauwi na kaso bat empty tayo lahat. ano ba naman? Sama na lang ako sa inyo. Caloocan naman sa amin.
    Ann: Can I come too? Then we can both go home to Makati.
    Tricia: Ann di ba you promised to ride with me. Malapit lang tayo and you know I get so bored riding in the car alone.
    Fretzie: Guys uwi na kami ha. Nandyan na Dad ni Bret, they'll drop me off sa bahay. See you monday!
    Jack: Devon, I really wanted na ihatid ka kaso my dad wanted me home immediately. My driver is there na nga.
    Devon: Ok lang. sama na lang ako kina Papa Bear. Ill see you tomorrow.

    And so they each left in separate groups. Ann, Tricia Ryan, Kazel and Ivan together,and then James, Joe, Eslove and Devon.

    James went inside the drivers seat. Joe entered the passenger side. Eslove and Devon at the back. James smiled. He made a plan and acted on it. Thirty minutes later, with Joe and Eslove gone, James maneuvered the car around with a surprised Devon. Tagaytay here we come!

    CHAPTER 16

    James slumped on the plane seat. Still holding his IPAD. Still gazing at their picture. He remembered that night. That epic night in the highlands of Tagaytay. The night he professed, they both did, their feelings for one another.

    "Hoy saan tayo pupunta? Ba't ka lumiko?" Devon asked him when he maneuvered the car around.
    He looked at her and smiled.
    James: You owe me this. When we were inside you told me we'd go malling and go to Bora but we never did.
    Devon: James bah. my mom will kill me. Where are you bringing me man?
    James: Devooooon, please.. I just need to talk to someone right now. Im confused.
    Devon: Sana sina Joe na lang sinama mo!
    James: I need to talk to a girl. So I can get a woman's perspective. Devon I think I like someone.
    Devon with total disbelief said " SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?"
    James: Please, be a friend to me!!! Besides remember you owe me this trip.
    Devon: What will I do with my mom? She'll go crazy with worry. Basin atakin yun sa puso.
    James: Dont worry about your mom.. She probably thinks were still in location. You told her we will be super late right? I heard you talk to Fretzie!
    Devon: HUH?? Buang!!!Asa ta ui? AYY Where are we going?
    James: Sit tight and enjoy the ride.

    Then with a resigned sigh she looked at him and then smiled.

    The drive to Tagaytay seemed so quick. They were talking and laughing and all the worries seemed far gone.

    James looked at his passenger and smiled. Tonight is the night. When Jack told them what his plan was, James realized something. He was completely jealous of Jack. Because of Devon. Because Jack was not scared to admit what he feels. And James admitted it then and there, that he is crazy in love. with her. Devon. he's caught, hook line and stinker. And hell would break loose before he'd let anyone have her.

    It was already dusk when they arrived and the sun was setting. They got out of the car.
    James: You hungry?
    Devon: No. James this is the first time Ive been here. Amazing!! Thank you ha.. even if you just brought me here to tell me about your love issues.
    James: There's a gazebo there oh. lets go take a seat.
    Devon: Drama ka talaga. Gusto mu lang makipagchikahan then you had to drive all the way here.
    They went to one of the gazebo's and sat. Then James looked at her and smiled.

    James: Liked it? Isnt this worth all the fuzz you will get from your parents later?
    Devon just smiled. All thoughts of the punishments she'll prolly get are far from her mind.
    When James told her they are coming to Tagaytay, she was both excited and scared. Kinilig siya because she has heard stories of how romantic the place is. Scared because she doesnt know what his intention was, and what her reaction would be.
    Would he really be telling her about the girl he likes? At the back of her mind she is hoping that the girl is her. But with how things are. And considering that for the past couple of months they've been a bit distant she really doesnt know.
    Devon: Oh ano na? who do you like ba?
    James: uii.. you fishing?
    Devon: HUH?? you said were coming here to talk about the girl you like di ba?
    James looked at her and gave her another one of his smiles. Yung parang nakakaloko. The smile that had so many girls go crazy about.
    "Isn't it obvious?"


    Chapter 17

    "Isn't it obvious?"
    Devon was so surprised by the reply that she looked away from him. Did she hear him right? But the statement was so vague she doesnt want to assume things.
    So intead of answering his question, she pretended not to hear.
    Devon: huh? what did you say?
    James: hahaha.You didn't hear me? Why are you pretending that you didnt hear what I said.
    Devon looked so uncomfortable James can't stop laughing.
    Devon: Your crazy.
    James: Why am I crazy?
    Devon: I dont know. You just are!
    James: So what did I say?
    Devon: I dont know!
    James: You do! I know you do.. hahahahaha
    Devon: Hayyyyy AMbot nimo! Let's go home na" Then she started to stand up. James grabbed her arms.
    James: SIT! So now you know.
    Devon: I dont know nga!
    A hint of a smile is now slowly forming on her mount.
    James sat beside her, then slowly, he took both her hands on his.
    James: Let's stop playing jokes. I brought you here to tell you something. The first time I saw you, I knew you'd be a great friend. Then we grew close and something in me changed.
    Devon: James, stop.
    James: Devon, you changed me, I knew you did. When we were inside Kuya's house, you were the one who transformed me. Bret noticed that. I think everyone did. So please listen to me and believe me. I dont know when it happened or how it happened. All i Know is that Im crazy about you!! I know things are crazy but all I want is to be with you!
    The smile that she was suppose to let out turned into a frown. Then James saw the tears slowly coming out.
    She looked down and started crying. She then looked up at him. Removed one of her hands from his. Then slowly, she touched his face and said. "James, as much as I would want to, I dont think we will every work out.!"

    ABANGAN ang nakaka-excite na fanfic--- “Si Jessie at si Mitch”

    Si Jessie At si Mitch

    Part 1 – Si Jessie

    Sa isang maliit na dampa sa Tondo----isa lang doon sa libu-libong pamilya----na wari mo’y may sarili silang mundo. Yung mga taong nangangarap minsang makakain ng “spaghetti”, “hamburger” o “pizza”. Yung bawat gabi, ang mga bata ay naghihintay sa ama na galing sa pagdedelihensiya at bitbit-bitbit ang hapunan ng buong pamilya. Minsan o mahigit sa madalas ay umuwing nakayuko ang ama at walang dala sabay sabing umutang na lang muna ng sardinas sa tindahan sa kanto. Ang ibig sabihin ay hahaba na naman ang lista ng utang nila. Kahapon lang ay inimbargo na na ng tindera ang natitira nilang transistor radio.
    Nang gabing yun, umuwi si Mang Mando na matamlay dahil alam niya matutulog na naman ang mga anak na walang laman ang sikmura. Buong araw siya tumambay sa pier para magkarga ng bagahe pero walang dumating na barko dahil sa nagbabadyang bagyo.



    CARMEN (C): Wala na tayong magagawa, Armando. May naluto naman akong konting hapunan diyan. May kanin at saka kanina pumunta kami sa bahay kung saan namamasukang labandera si Pacita kaya tumulong ako kasi may sakit daw yong kusinera nila kaya yun nadala ko yong tira nila at humingi ako ng kangkong sa kapitbahay nila.
    MANDO(Ma): O sige na….(patingin –tingin sa paligid na ari may hinahanap)….maghain ka na at kumain na tayo. O saan na ba si Jessie?
    C: Nasa kapitbahay lang yata yun ay nakikinood ng TV. ( habang naghahanda ng mesa)
    (Nagtinginan lang ang tatlo nilang anak--- Joseph (15), Jasmin (10) at Jesebell (8)---alam nila talaga kung saan si Jessie.)
    MA: Tawagin nyo nga siya. Hay naku gabing-gabi.
    JO: Ah eh….sss…sige po. (papalabas na sana nang dumating si Jessie na parang ayos na ayos at may dalang bag at supot.)

    JA at JE: Si ate, si ate andito na….
    MA: Saan ka galing, akala ko ba nasa kabilang bahay ka at nakikinood ng TV
    C: Saan ka naman galing?
    J: Pasensya na , Nay di ako nagpaalam sa inyo. E kasi…..sumama po ako kina Kate at Boboy. Piesta pos a kabilang barangay at sumali po kami sa contest. Nanalo po kami…(may dinukot sa loob ng bulsa at binigay sa ina)..ito po..konti lang yan…at ito bumili ako ng pansit at saka tinapay po. Wag na po kayong magalit, tay, nay. Hilig ko naman talagang sumayaw, bonus lang po na nananalo kami.
    MA: Wag kang mag-alala , anak basta nga ba di lang sagabal sa pag-aaral mo.
    J: Hay hindi po talaga. Sa halip po na maglakwatsa kami, nagpa-praktis po kami palagi.
    C: Hay naku, sa susunod magpaalam ka. Akala naman tuloy nasa kina Gloria ka at nanonood ng TV. At naku, hanggang diyan lang yan sa piyesta ha…
    (Lahat sila ay umupo na sa harap ng mesa upang kumain.)

    MA: anong ibig mong sabihin, Carmen?
    C: Nabalitaan mo yong anak ni Neneng diyan sa kanto. Kumakalat ang tsismis na yong anak….yung dati mong kababata na si Agnes…yung palagi ding sumasayaw-sayaw kasama niyo. Ayun sumasayaw ng walang saplot sa isang bar sa may Pasay. Mas matanda lang sa yo yun, Jessica ng dalawang taon. Di pa yun nakapagtapos ng high school.
    MA: Pinalaki nating mabuti si Jessie, Carmen. Kahit hirap tayo sa buhay,di siya gagawa non.
    C: Malay mo.
    JE: Sumasayaw po ng walang saplot? Anong ibig sabihin non, tay?
    C: Ayan itigil nyo nya yan, nakikinig si Jessebel.
    MA: Ikaw lang naman ang nagsabi non. Hindi kami.
    JO: Ang ibig sabihin sumasayaw na walang sapatos.
    JE: Ay ganon po? Buti na lang di nasugatan ang paa niya.
    J: Oo nga no, Joseph…buti na lang malinis yong sahig ng stage.
    C: O siya bukas may pasok pa kayo ha kaya pagkatapos nito diretso ng tulog.
    ***************************************************************
    Madilim ang buong bahay at tulog na ang lahat maliban kay Jessie. Pinagmasdan lang ang mga kapatid na katabi sa isang banig at ang magulang sa isang gilid ng bahay. Silang anim sa isang silid na bahay. Lumaki siya ng ganito
    wala yatang sekreto ang isa’t isa dahil lahat sila nagkikita-kita sa isang bubong ng kanilang bahay.
    Tumayo siya at binuksan ang munting bintana sa may kusina. Tahimik ang paligid para sa kanya kahit na may maririnig siyang mga taong nagtatawanan at mga tunog habang pinaghahalo yong madyong sa kapitbahay. Meron ding nag-aaaway sa kabila at may umiiyak na bata. Ito ang mundo na kinakigisnan niya. Para sa kanya, musika sa tenga pero nang nakita niya ang mga tala sa langit, nakaramdam siya ng katahimikan at kapayapaan ng loob na kasama niya ang mga mahal niya sa buhay at buo sila. May maliit na ngiti sa labi dahil sa simpleng kaligayahan. Maya-maya may nakita siyang shooting star, nilagay ang kamay sa dibdib at pumikit sabay hiling sa isang pangarap----para sa kanyang pamilya.************************************************

    [crouching-tiger-disappearing-spoiler]

    CHAPTER 1

    Its so easy to spot her, the odd girl out. While everyone in the room were busy chit chatting with one another, there she was sitting all alone, with an open book in front of her. Despite the loud noise her classmates were making, her concentration on the book she's reading never faltered. Until...

    "EEEEEEEEKKKK.. somebody tweeted me. Its official. sila na talaga! They had a press con earlier for their new show and Ann said that she and James Reid are finally together!"

    "TALAGA? well it was bound to happen, I mean they look good together, they're the perfect pair!!!"

    And more comments came after that. There were quite a lot who were very happy with the reel and real pairing of the new IT couple, though there were also others who voiced out their negativity.
    "AS IN? paano nangyari? I mean they're not bagay ha! di ba their movie was a flop. Kasi naman the girl, she's not that pretty.. and di magaling umakting"

    "hay Inggit ka lang. You're just jealous that you can never have JAMES REID!"

    Everyone were so busy that no one even heard the sound of a book being dropped, and no one noticed the pained expression of the girl on the other side of the room.

    Well nobody cares! No one knows! And no one will every know. The girl opened her bag, took out her hanky and dabbed it on the tears that are starting to form. Then she heard her cellphone beeping.

    She took out her phone and saw 3 new messages.

    Bret: Are you OK? This is very unexpected.Do you want to talk?

    Ivan: have you heard? Call me when you get this.

    Yours: You still in class? I need to see you. Pick you up same place same time.

    She read the messages and felt a pang of sadness engulfing her being. Where is that darned professor anyway! She needs him to come in and start teaching them about theorems and algorithms! She needs him here! Needs him to put a stop on all the commotion.
    To tell her classmates to stop talking about THEM!

    But luck was not on her side, minutes passed by and no professor came. Her classmates were still very much engrossed with the lates topic. The women were shrieking with glee some with disbelief.
    She had to leave! She can't bear to hear anymore of this hurtful news. She stood up and got her bag.

    "Guys, una na ako ha. parang di naman kasi papasok si sir eh. 30 mins late na.. Im so hungry punta muna akong canteen"

    "Cge Devon, we will try to follow you in a while. enjoy pa kasi kwentuhan dito!" said Jessica, one of her kaclose sa batch nila.

    She hurriedly left the room and at the back of her mind she's wishedthat no one would find her. She needs to be alone. She needs to find a place of solitude. She has to go somewhere wherein she can cry, and she can shout, and express the unfairness of it all!
    She decided to go to the ladies room on the far end of the building, hoping at this time most students are still attending their classes.
    Pumasok siya sa loob ng isang cubicle. She sat on the toilet bowl then placed her bag down on the floor. She then allowed the tears to flow. She wanted to let it all out but she knows this isnt the right place. So letting go of the tears would have to be enough for now.

    Then her phone started to ring. It was him. She doesnt know what to do. She desperately wants to talk to him. To hear his voice. To be told that everything's not true. But she's also frigging scared. All along, she knew that they're living in two different worlds. Ito na ba ang araw na kinakatakutan niya? The day when he would finally realize that he was better off with someone other than her?
    Her phone kept ringing and ringing and with great reluctance she decided to answer him.

    "Yes?" Sadness was very evident in her voice.

    He was not used to this tone on her voice. He knows her. She's always perky. Her voice is always playful. Its actually one of the things he like about her. And then and there he knew. She already heard the news. He paused and can't seem to think straigt. Can't seem to find the right words to say.

    "Yes?" she said it again exactly the same way.

    " I need to talk to you." He said those words the way he usually says things. Curt and direct to the point.

    "Is it true?"

    "Its complicated."

    "Is it true?"

    "Let's talk. I'll wait for you at my place. Take a cab, I'll leave money with the guard. Im leaving for Australia tomorrow. There's no other time. "Then he ended the call. He knew she would come. He just don't know what and how to tell her.

    I leave the gas on
    Walk the alleys in the dark
    Sleep with candles burning
    I leave the door unlocked
    I'm weaving a rope and
    Running all the red lights
    Did I get your attention
    Cause I'm sending
    All the signs
    That the clock is ticking
    And I'll be giving
    My two weeks

    Pick your favorite
    Shade of black
    You'd best
    Prepare a speech
    Say something funny
    Say something sweet
    But don't say
    That you loved me

    [Chorus:]
    Cause I'm still breathing
    Though we've been
    Dead for awhile
    This sickness has no cure
    We're goin down for sure
    Already lost a grip
    Best abandoned ship oh...

    Maybe I was too pale
    Maybe I was too fat
    Maybe you wanted better
    Better luck in the sack
    No formal education
    And I swore way too much
    But I swear
    You didn't ****ing care
    Cause we were in love

    So as I write this letter
    And shed my last tear
    It's all for the better
    That we end this year
    Let's close this chapter say one last prayer
    But don't say that you loved me

    Cuz I'm still breathing
    Though we've been dead for awhile
    This sickness has no cure
    We're going down for sure
    Already been diagnosed
    So let's give up the ghost

    [Chorus]

    oh... I'm still breathing
    I'm still breathing

    CHAPTER 3

    It was the longest elevator ride of her life. He's up on the 40th floor. A floor away from the Penthouse. Well what do you expect? He always had a priviledge life. His dad made sure of it. Even before he went inside the famous house where they first met, he already have a place of his own, his own car, and other things that most people would only dream about.
    He went inside the house mainly for the experience, and to meet friends, he left with much much more!

    She was glad that the elavator is taking its time. She's not ready to face him yet. Not ready to hear the bad news. And the worst thing of all the real reason why she's taking all the time in the world is because She is not ready to lose him! She is not ready to let him go! She looked on and saw that she's already on the 30th floor and each floor going up brings her closer to what she dreads the most!
    A life without him.

    Thinking about the past made her smile, who would have thought that the Bubbly girl from Cebu, a girl that came from such modest upbringing would catch the eye of the Australian hunk. She didnt know when it started. She was just there minding her business. Trying to enjoy the company of the housemates.

    She noticed him of course. Who wouldnt? With his boyish good looks, his fun loving ways, and the accent to boot! But whatever attraction she felt for James, she kept to herself. What's the point? There are far more pretty girls in the house. Attractive girls like Tricia, and Ann whom he can clearly communicate with. Girls who have the same background as he does.

    Looking back, she can still remember that at that time she tried to stay away from the teenternationals except for maybe Bret and Ryan. Bret because he can speak her dialect, and Ryan with his funny antics is so hard to ignore. There was a language barrier, not because she doesnt really understand what their saying. But mainly because she cant relate to what they're talking about.

    Everyone knows she came from a poor family. What little money her parents get are used for their basic needs and education. So when her housemates would talk about malling and clubbing and shopping and all those restaurants they've been with, she would just smile and nod and feign interest. But she can never take part with such conversations.

    She stopped reminiscing about the house on the 37th floor. Three more floors, and then she would see him again. Dub dub dub her heart is saying. This meeting would be different. Different from the past meetings that they had. It won't be like those sweet and happy moments theyve shared na malayu sa mapanuring mga mata ng tao.

    Chapter 4

    He was in his room, staring into space, waiting for the bell to ring. She's on her way up, she said. In a couple more minutes he'd finally see her again. Last they saw each other was a week ago. During his birthday. Technically, it was the night before his birthday. He didnt expect that she's made a gesture as big as that.
    He knew she was busy with her school work. And she knows that he was busy taping for a new show. They never made plans. He didnt make any plans. All he wanted for his birthday was to spend it with her. But he knew he can't do that.
    He knew there will be hell to pay if people would know that he, Robert James Reid, the one part of the phenomenal JAMLI spent his 19th birthday not with his "better half".

    How his life had changed. Two years ago when he decided to join the big brother house, he never wanted fame. He was bored with his life. Being home schooled was lonesome. All he did back then was to go out, have fun. Then that fateful day came when someone saw him walking around GLORIETTA, his manager now.
    What happened?He was a plain guy back in Australia, but when he moved to the Philippines, how his life have changed. People see him as extra ordinarily good looking. People look back when they see him. Girls clamor for his attention.

    Even inside the house, with good looking men like Jack, Bret, Ivan, Patrick and the rest. he still feels that a lot of women housemates liked him. Except her.
    She was different. She tries so hard to be at the sidelines, except when there are tasks given to them, then you can really see how she shines. He didnt really notice her at first. What with Tricia being there. All eyes were on Tricia! She was pretty and tall and always teh center of attention. She was always around to talk to him. Then there was ANN, the girl whose life mirrored his own.
    Ann was fun to talk to. They have a lot of things in common. They've been to the same places, done the same things. It was easier to talk to Ann because she understands. Understands how it is to grow up with one parent. How lonely life could be.

    The day he notice Devon though was the day his life changed forever. It was the day she and Tricia had to celebrate their birthdays. He never took notice of Devon, didnt really know she existed. She's the girl with the great voice. Thats all he knows.

    Funny and perverted as it sounds, she got his attention when he accidentally saw her changing in the girl's bedroom. And then the ball started rolling after that.
    Where is she? She supposed to be here by now? James doesnt know what to do with the mess he's in right now. Even his dad, the person whose opinions he respects the most, can't seem to give him any advise.

    He knows that everything is his fault. It couldve been so easy! He knows what he wants, He knows who he wants to be with. So why be in this mess? Three more years and she'll be done with school. He could still catch up. Leave the lime lights! He doesnt need the money, He sure as hell doesnt need the fame.
    Like everyone else, he was also surprised when he became the big winner. Still can't get it even up until now.

    He was very reluctant to join show business. At 17, he feels he doesnt really have the heart for it. He didnt really care about performing. It's embarrassing to be singing and dancing in national television. And what made it worst are the fans. They are everywhere. He knows he should be happy to have adoring fans swarming over him, but sometimes it could be crazy as hell.

    Then the management told them that they will have their own show. A teen show featuring if not all but most of the Pbb teens. He wasn't too sure about it but a contract is a contract.

    And then came the first shooting day. He was the last one to be shot that day. He was busy observing all his friends playing their own characters. It was so funny and nerve wrecking at the same time.

    Then it was his time to deliver his lines. When the lights came on and the camera started to roll, he heard Direk Lauren said Action. And the rest is history. Because in acting he found his niche, he found his passion. For James Reid, whom at 17, doesnt have clear direction in life , finding happiness in acting in front of the camera, was as surprising and as unexpected as falling for the Bubbly Girl from Cebu


    Chapter 5

    With a heavy heart she stepped out of the elevator. She turned left and saw the door to his pad. Is his dad around? Would someone else witness how her world would tumble down? She walked and stood staring at his door. Tawagan ko ba sya? Itxt? should I ring the bell? These and other thoughts are running through her mind.

    Last week when she came here her mood was different. She was so excited to spend that day with him. It was his 19th birthday. She knows that they can't go out. So what she did was plan a surprise party for the special man whom she owes so much.

    It was their first. First time to spend a special occasion together. Last year on his 18th birthday, he had to spend it with HER and their fans. They had a shooting on location and their fans were with them. James had to stay there for 3 days. Gusto nya talagang pumunta. But she knows, if a single fan would see kahit shadow lang nya. Things will fall down. Babalik sa dati. And the life of anonymity that she is living now would crumble into pieces. So nagparaya ***. But next year would be different, she vowed.

    So four months before Nov 11 2012 she asked him for a special day for them to spend together. She asked him to give her his birth day. He said yes and promised her, but like any other promises, he called 2 weeks ago. Hindi na rin pwede. His mom and her family asked him to spend his birthday with them. He had no reason to say no. So they compromised. A couple of hours on the eve of his birthday.

    She planned every single detail. May flowers ba o wala, his favorite food that she will cook, pati gift na ibibigay. She invited the three people who knows the truth about them. It was a very special affair. Bret and Fretzie came so did Ivan. That night was the best. It was a reunion of sorts. Full of laughter, reminiscing about the past, and the best of it all, they can be as sweet as they want to without a care in the world.

    Walang mapanghusgang tao. No one snickered at her just because James was touching her shoulders. No one would post hurtful comments just because they are smiling together. The three special people with them knew the real score and they never judged them.

    Her thoughts came to abrupt halt when the door suddenly open, then she saw him. Saw the man who stole her heart almost two years ago. The man who changed her life for the better. The man with whom she vowed to love forever. The man who, in probably less than a minute, would break her heart and world to pieces.
    Chapter 6

    "Why didn't you ring the bell?"
    "How did you know Im already here?"
    "Come in!"

    With great reluctance she slowly stepped inside. Her head was down and can't seem to look at him. Deep inside her nerves are in shambles. She desperately wants to hug him, to look at him, look at his eyes and be able to read his thoughts.
    She needs him to hug her, to look at her, look at her eyes and be able to read her thoughts.

    "Sit down, dyo want anything?"

    The dread that she was feeling earlier came back. He was never this formal to her. He was her DD, always sweet and funny. Heck, he had always been very playful with her. He was serious with everyone, but with her he's different. He's not afraid of opening up. Of showing his wacky side. Yes, he is serious at times, If the situation calls for it. But never this tone, So formal, so lacking of emotion.

    She slowly look at him. " Tell me its not true!"
    "Please settle down."
    "How could you James? You promised me it wouldnt come to this?"" Ann still doesnt know right?" ANSWER ME!!!"
    "You dont understand. Things are very complicated right now. This is just for show!"
    She stared at him in disbelief.. "For show? If this is only gimmick. then how come she still doesnt know about us? Ba't di mo o pa masabi sa manager mo? or sa family mo?" I know her, if she knows that Im still in the picture she wouldnt allow for this to happen."
    "Then that's your answer." he said trying to stay calm." I cant tell her yet because if I do then things will change. I havent proven anything yet Devon! My career is still rocky. I have made a mark mainly because of the team up.""Its whats keeping me afloat in the business."
    "That's Bull and you know it!"" So now what's your plan?" String the both of us along?"" I don't know if I can accept that James." When you told me your plan, I went along with it, because i know how much you love what you're doing. But do you honestly think I'm happy to be always sneaking around?" AND now this?"
    "Look, can you see it my way?"
    " SEE IT YOUR WAY? Ive been trying to see it your way for the longest time!""When you said you had to tobe sweet her, my heart broke but I accepted it, because of YOU!!!" But now, you honestly courted her and she said yes and your now together and everyone knows.. and AKO! ME, Im still the same 3rd class citizen!!""I'm still the same plain Devon who has no right to stand beside you!!!"
    "MM dont say that! Stop your hysterics."" Please to reason, PLEASE!!!".
    "James, Ive worked so hard and is still working hard so I can be deserving of you." For the past year and a half, all i did was to improve myself so that when the time comes that you're ready to tell the world about us, I can be .""But it seems all these are for nothing." And with a resigned fate she sat down. With tears streaming from her eyes.


    He looked at her, Looked at the girl he was in love with, a girl he vowed to protect. But he can't protect her now. He can't shield her from the pain she was feeling. The pain he inflicted on her. Because he made a choice.

    When his manager told him that he's losing a lot of supporters because of the new up and coming love team, He panicked. His manager said that people's interest on JAMLI are waning because their sweetness is not enough. He decided then and there to save the career he has worked hard to build.

    He started being extra sweet to ANN. He told her he has feelings for her. And thats the opening that she has been waiting for. When he told Ann about liking her ann immediately said she liked him back. And that's how they became "officially" an Item.

    "M, look at me, please you know I can't bear to see you cry." He went to her, knelt in front of her and touched her arm,
    " James, when will I ever be good enough for you? When will I ever be good enough for your fans? What else do I have to do?"

    Chapter 7

    " James, when will I ever be good enough for you? When will I ever be good enough for your fans? What else do I have to do?"
    He looked at her with deep regret in his eyes. He heard the question, and dont know what to say. He has no answer for her. He;s frustrated. Life is never fair. Why can he never be completely happy?
    Devon is now crying silently. Tears are flowing so hard and all she wants was to lay down and sob. Gusto nyang maglupasay sa sagit dahil sa sakit. But she tried to control herself. He is seeing her cry but she wiont give him the satisfaction of witnessing how her world is crumbling down.

    "M, please, you know how much I love you."
    "Do you really love me James? Di ba love is making someone happy? Eh with what you're doing parang you despise me so much!""So ano? Ganito na lang ako forever?"" Your closet Girlfriend? And then 10 years from now? Ill be your closet mistress?"
    Let's face it girlfriend mo na siya ngayon, It might be pretend on your part but not on hers. When youre alone she expects for you to kiss her, to hug her, and then what? You'll sleep with her next. You'll get married then because that's what the fans and everyone expects from you!"

    "Devon your imagination is getting the best of you."

    "If I accept this situation, and sit back and let you do your thing. Can you promise me that you will neer touch her? that you won't kiss her? that you won' hold her?"

    His silence was the death of her. She knows that his answer would be. They both know. But how can she accept the situation? Kahit nga before na the set up was for him to be a sweet and to date her, ang sakit na. Eh ngayon pa na sila na. And maybe it was for publicity on his sake, pero how about her? Devon and the rest of the world knows that Ann has been in love with James even when they were still inside kuya's house. And when they got out, even if she knew that James liked Devon, hindi *** bumitaw. Never lost hope that someday James would shift her feelings towards her.

    And its seems luck was on her side. When James got out of the house there were a lot of JAMLI fans who are desperate to get them together. The Jamli's are said to be the main reason why James became big winner. The Jamli's were everywhere!!
    They befriendly his family, his friends, sent him gifts, the fan base spent a lot of money, just to ensure that James and Ann would be paired sa mga shows.

    "So ayaw mo na?" He asked. He completely want' to fight for her. But how can he, when he has not proven to his fans, his manager, and most especially his Dad, that he is something. When he started acting and realize this is what he wants to do in life, he thought everything else will follow. But it didnt.

    A year and a half after joining the biz, he still has nothing to be proud of. He is still one half of a pair. What more, giving up right now is not an option. He promised his dad that he will be something! He can't give up on that promise.

    But would chasing his dream means giving up the one person who makes him complete?

    Looking at her, he feels so guilty. He knew he wasnt fair to her, he never was. She had given up too much for him. She had let go of a lot of things and a lot of people for him. She chose him. And it seems that now, when the tide has turned, when its his time to decide, He can't choose her.

    Chapter 8

    How it all began. People would probably think that their love story started inside the PBB house and they are partly right. That's where they met, its where those singing and guitar lessons starter. Its where they did their first massages. They grew close there.
    But their closeness went to an abrupt halt when they left BB's house. They didnt have the chance to see each other aside from the guestings and shows they had to attend. The closest to a hanging out that they had was when he went with her, Ivan and Fretzie watch Toy Story 3.
    Blame it on her mom who's overprotective, or the fact that she's not really that comfortable hanging out with her well off housemates that seems to be with him all the time.
    Nag effort rin naman si James to invite her during the get together, even to a point of offering to pick her up. But she was so busy spending time with her family that she haventt seen in almost 4 months. So she would always refuse.
    She invited him once, one Sunday to go out with her and their followers, but he was busy at that time. She never invited him again. She heard nga that he was always spotted with Ann. they were always together. Pictures and videos of them are all over the internet.
    So Devon tried to let go of her feelings. Well its better this way. She can concentrate on what she really needs to do. For herself. For her family.
    Then came that fateful day. Two weeks after their Wowowee guesting. She received a message from her handler asking her to go to ABS. She knows this is about the teen show that she auditioned together with Pbb friends last week.
    Her friends, Fretzie and Tricia got the same message. Devon knew that she got really lucky. This is the big break she had been waiting for. If this works out, she can finally help her family. She can put her sisters back to school.
    This is the reason why she joined PBB in the first place. To have a shot, maybe not at stardom, but the chance to earn enough money to provide her family especially her sisters better opportunities in life.
    She was so excited that night. Tomorrow she will go to ABS, will meet Tricia and Fretzie and the rest. And tomorrow might be the start of something great!
    She was right yet so wrong!!

    Chapter 9

    They were ushered inside the conference room. Devon came early, Fretzie and Tricia picked her up. Ang ingay ingay nila sa Taxi. They were all excited about the meeting today. They all know, that today would be a start of of a long and hard journey. The journey to achieve their dreams.
    "Hala, ba't tayo pa lang tatlo? Excited much? Tricia quipped. They decided to stay on one side of the huge conference room. There were some sets of sofas all around and they picked the one farthest from the door.
    Fretzie :Buti naman yung una tayo. At least we can see who would come in next.
    Tricia: Ui..excited to see Bret!
    Fretzie: Dili man! We talk baya all the time so why should i be excited.
    Devon: HALA!! SAKPAN KA! hahahah.. pero imagine ha.. Bret's is now a certified VJ..Is it true that hsi contract got extended.
    Fretzie: yeah he was so happy about it gani. Extended for year. He's doing good man. Kita mo outside. And early ng mga fans noh?
    Tricia: Bitaw, mura mag buang mga JAMLI ui.. hahaha.. Gisnub jud mi ni Devon! HAHAHA.
    Devon: Hayaan mo na sila. Basta Im so happy today. Hindi ako nakatulog masyado kagabi.
    Tricia: Hoi you lost a lot of weight lagi.. MAKASUYA! HALA INLOVE! hahahahaha..
    Devon: WHAT? NGANO KA?
    Tricia: Di na makakain. Di na makatulog. Sa kakaisip kay JAMES! hahahahhahaha
    Fretzie: HALA!!! TRUE!! hahahaha. Selos ka masyado kaya ka namayat noh?
    Devon: waaaaaah.. Wag ganyan ui! Crazy man mo duha. Wala Ui. Friends ra man mi ni James. Sila siguro ni Ann. Kamo ni manman Trish mustah? uiiiiiiiiiii!
    Tricia: hahaha.. Funny.. you know what we have is purely business. You all know the whole story! Hehehe. Pero is James and Ann and Item na? Sige man sila together.
    Devon: Asked them ui. Basta ako I dont care!
    Fretzie and Tricia: Bitter!! HAHAHAHAHA
    Their laughter was suddenly cut off when the door opened and all the other teens who will be part of the show came in.
    Devon looked up to see who were there. And then her eyes met his, the dark haired Dashing dude from Australia, and her world seemed to stop, and so did his!

    CHAPTER 10

    He wasnt really that excited about the meeting today. He's tired. He had a late night with his friends from Australia. And waking up early was his least favorite thing to do. The fun and excitement of being in the limelight is starting to wane off.
    People notices him everywhere. They take his pictures all the time. A lot are gutsy enough to approach him and ask for a kiss or a hug. It was fun at first. But its getting irritating as days pass by.
    He misses the anonymity. He misses going to malls and being left alone. When he moved to the Philippines, people do stare at him. But thats all they did.
    Waking up so early was a drag but he's hoping it would all be worth the sacrfice. Then he realized that she would be there. And his face lit up.
    He cant wait to see her. Can't wait to talk to her. Hell. he even misses her hitting him.
    When he arrived in ABS, the fans were already there. It was a big puzzle to him how the fans knew their day to day events. He looked at the mirror yawned and then practiced his usual smile.
    He saw Ann with the a group of Jamli's on their way to his car. He got out and then looked around, trying to find out if she has arrived. He saw a group of Jaevon fans seated in one corner of The Loop, they looked at him and smiled. He waved at them and then smiled back. He saw the banner that they brought and his smile grew bigger.
    "JAMES JAMES ANN ANN!! JAMLI JAMLI! JAMLI!" And then all the commotion started.
    Ann went to him and smiled." Let's go inside." He knew she would be touching his hands so he turned around and started walking towards the entrance.
    "Jamessssssssss.. JAMESSSSSSSSS. ANNNNNNNN.. PICTURE NAMAN!!! PICTURE PLEASE..." AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.. JAMESSSS> JAMLI!!!!!!!!!" He forced a smile and posed for their cameras.
    EEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!! KILIG!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!! Their voices are too loud he wants to turn around and leave!!! but he knows he can't. He owes these people a lot. They are the major reason why he is here.
    His sister Lauren told him when he got out of the house that JAMLI's spent a lot so he can become big winner!
    Then he saw Bret and Ryan and the rest.
    Ryan: James! there you are. Sorry I didnt make it last night. I had a lot of school work to finish.
    Bret: Man, were finally here, have you seen Fretzie?
    James: haha.. You're completely smitten man! You still into Fretzie despite all the girls youve met at all the MyX parties that you went to?
    Bret: haha.. Crazy! That will never change!
    Ryan: Jenny, Ann, where are the girls?
    Ann: I don't know. I heard Tricia is already inside, with fretzie and Devon.
    Aside from the big 8, James also saw, Jack, Patrick, Joe and Kazel. They moved towards them with a gleeful smile on their faces.
    They were chit chatting all the way to the 5th floor where the conference room is. James can't stop anticipating. He cant really wait to see her again. The door opened and when he walked inside he saw the three girls sitting together on the far end of the room. With smiles on their faces they looked up. And for James the world stopped. There she was. The one person who made him feel. The girl whom he knows can rock his world. Devon May Seron, the Bubbly girl from Cebu.

    Chapter 11

    James followed Bret and Ryan to where the girls were. He can't seem to stop looking at her. She lost a lot of weight, he noticed. She was wearing this blue flowery dress that accentuates her dark skin. That's one of the things he liked so much about her.
    " Hey, how are you guys? Kanina pa mo?" Bret was asking them.
    James went to her side, touched her arms and looked at her.
    James: Devon, where have you been hiding?
    Devon: Here and there.. hahaha.. UI im just home all the time. Ikaw! you're always out!hahaha
    Bret: Hala Devon Selos!! hahaha.. Kung sumasama ka naman kay James pag iniinvite ka!
    She can't think of any smart retort to reply to that. So she just laughed at dahil sa sobrang tense niya nahampas niya si James.
    James: WHoooW.. I missed that! hahahaha
    Everyone started laughing and nobody noticed that James already took Devon's arm, he looked at her and smiled then led her to where they were sitting earlier.
    James: What have you been up tp?
    It was a simple question but she cant seem to answer.
    Devon: Wala lang. Stay at home all the time. Ikaw, youre everywhere!
    James: Why won't you go out with me? Why dyo always refuse when I invite you out.
    Devon: I wanna go but my place is too far and my parents they don't want me going out that much.
    James: Youre such a spoil sports. Were eating out later, join us please! Ill be the one to ask permission from your mom.
    Devon: My GOD nooo!! hahaha.. Ill ask her.
    James: I miss your massages.
    He said it almost in a whispery voice it was a miracle that she actually heard it. She wanted to smack him but dont want people to notice them that she looked at him and smiled.
    Devon: I miss massaging you too.. hehehe
    There were a lot of people in that room, but for the two of them, parang sila lang ang tao, di lang sa room na yon, bat sa buong mundo.


    CHAPTER 12

    James cant sleep. He knows he had an early fight tomorrow. He can't wait to go to Australia. Its been a year since he last saw his sister Lauren. He badly needs her now. He needs to talk to someone who can help him see light of the mess that he's in.
    Is it really over? He can't accept that everything will end this way. He still cant get it to his head that she left just like that. Everything is too hazy. He knows he is at fault. He cant blame her. No one can!
    Devon has sacrificed too much for him. Gave up a lot so she can be with him, secret it may be.
    HE then looked back that time three months after leaving Pbb house, they were given the chance to do a teen show together with the other housemates. It was about several teens whose lives were intertwined because of a band. It was a sweet and simple story that launched all their careers.
    The teen show brought them far more recognition than they already have. They were all over. TV guestings, Mall Shows, Magazine Covers, they almost had it all.
    Devon gained more supporters and those fans who hated her started to grew soft on her. They noticed her talent and attitude, so as days went by there were less and less fans who were bashing her online.
    It helped that James was paired with Ann. Although they had to work really hard to finally get the much needed onscreen chemistry that they lacked at first. The JAMLI's who were very vocal at disliking Devon were now starting to see her with a different light.
    The Jaevon's are growing stronger, getting more and more fan base. The same name but different personalities. Because Jaevon is no longer James and Devon but Jack and Devon.
    They were the love team on the show. Their pairing was surprisingly effective. And the love story of a rebelious probinisyana and a straight laced rich korean hunk was highly anticipated.
    And then out of the blue, without any reason, something happened. An event that still puzzles everyone up until now. Devon, the rising star suddenly quit. No explanations. She just said she has had enough. She left the limelight. Left her fans. Left the life that she has always wanted.
    James knew why. Aside from her, he was the only one who knew why she left if all. He asked her to. Begged her. So they can be together. And she chose him!


    CHAPTER 13

    She can't stop crying. It was past midnight last she checked. Things are completely hanging by a thread. She left not knowing what's ahead. No reassurance, not even closure.
    She left crying because she doesnt wanna say things she might regret. She badly wanted to hurt him the way he is hurting her. Pero when she looked at him, with his head bowed down and eyes closed, she realized that he was in pain too. So she left.
    Leaving was probably the best and worst thing that she did. Pero she was scared. Scared of what will happen if she stayed. Eto na ba talaga? Would this mark the end of her happy days?
    True, being in a secret relationship with one of the most popular teen star was not an easy ride, they had more problems than most normal couples have. They had to adjust more, and the biggest downside, was that they had to always sneak around.
    But she has promised him her love, promised him that she will hold on. At least it wasnt a one way street, because James made her feel that she truly is special.What he lacks in time,he more than made up for it when they were together. He has given her far too much. And aside from his love he gave her the best thing she couldve hoped for. He may not be able to tell the world about them, but to the one person who mattered most he did, He introduced Devon to his Dad as his girlfriend.

    Pero was everything really worth it? The pain she is in now encompasses all the physical pain in the world. How did it come to be? She left kuya's house full of hope, now two years later, she had none.


    The meeting with the ABS executives was a happy affair. Everyone in that room were ecstatic because they were all part of the new teen show that would change the filipino teens viewing habit.

    Devon, though a bit disappointed was still feeling extremely lucky. Yeah she was not paired with James, he got Ann, but she would be part of the show which is what she completely wanted. Fretzie got paired with Bret, Ivan with Tricia and yung iba were left without any .

    Those like her who were not given pairs had to join a series of workshop that would determine their roles and their partners.

    She was completely taken aback when she was paired with Jack. Yeah, he was her first chin kiss, and she think he is nice in an older brotherly kinda way. But the other people saw something she couldnt.

    Then came the first shooting day for their teen show, and she was very excited, they all were. She read the script a week ago and was glad to get a very nice role. Still a bit disappointed that she was not paired with James, but her main focus now is to work and work for her family. ANd Jack was not a bad second. After they were paired together they grew a little bit closer. He would always joke with her, sometimes compliments her and though they dont really have that much things to talk about, she still enjoys his company.

    Tricia : Ui Devon, I heard the good news. Haha.. Partner jud mu ni Jack! BAGAY!!!
    Devon: Haha.. Lagi, I read the script last week nice man noh?Pero still cant get over that I will be paired with Jack!
    Tricia: Yeah, Its like Im playing myself ra jud! Wont requie too much effort on my end. Fretzie: Yeah bitaw, My role too. it hits clsoe to hom!. Im a goody goody girl. Devon, SUS if I know you wanted to be paired with DD!
    Devon: hahaha.. NOOOOOOOOOOOO.. Im sure he's happy with Ann.
    Tricia: Unya are you happy???
    Devon: HAHAHA.. CHISMOSA!!!Ako shock jud ko. Im playing a rebel probinsyana.. Weird..then me and fretzie are cousins.. hahaha.. can you imagine?

    They were so into their conversation that they didnt notice the three guys looking at them.

    Jack: Man we missed you last week. I didnt really thought I would want to join showbiz but the experience last week was a blast. I didnt know Devon could be so cool. And man ang ganda niya!
    Bret: Oh jumaJavon!!! Heard youre being paired up with her.. Well at least the Jaevon's wont have to change their names di ba James?
    Jack: Yeah I am so glad. You all know I really wanted to be paired with Yen, but I dont know what happened. Oh yeah I do know. Devon happened.
    Bret : Im just glad Im being paired up with Fretzie, and James you and Ann.. JAMLI's are going crazy.
    James didnt bother to offer a reply. He just gave his curt smile and looked at the girls. Devon was so pretty that time. He was still mad why they were not paired together. Ann was ok. But Devon wouldve been a better choice. Then there's this thing with Jack.
    Of all people to be paired up with, why Jack. He looked at him and saw him looking at the girls, looking at Devon. He saw the interest in his eyes. And that made him want to punch him out. He knows he has no right to her. But he cant help it. He Robert James Reid is jealous!

    Chapter 14

    He did not sleep a wink. He looked extremely tired and his dad noticed it. But now is not the right time to tell him what's bothering him. He has a flight to Australia to catch. He took the earliest flight hoping that the fans wouldnt be there to bother him for once.
    His dad drove him to the airport. He checked in first and though it was not boarding time yet, the flight attendants were so nice to allow him to get into the plane first. His wish was not granted. Outside there were probably 50 fans shouting his name.
    He went inside the plane walked to the first class wing and sat then he took out his Ipad, turned it on, put in his password and saw her. He saw them. It was that time in Tagaytay. The picture, his wallpaper, was taken that fateful night, a year and a half ago. That was the night he promised to love her, to be with her, to hold on to her no matter what, and to make her happy.
    Yet last night, seemed to be a night of broken promises.
    Is this really the end? She just left lastnight tears in her eyes without any goodbyes. Would it be the last time he would see her? Would last night be the end of their bittersweet journey?

    It was a month after the launching of "Meant to Be", everyone were deliriously happy. They are number 1 for 3 straight weeks. Everyone was crazy about them. They were all invited everywhere. They had more guestings than their time could permit them to.

    The best thing was that they were all friends, having fun and earning big bucks at the same time. Its was just like being inside Kuya's house except that at the end of the day they would have to go their own beds, their own homes. Their exposures may not be equal, but who cares. Everyone were on tv. And even the likes of Joe and Eslove have followers of their own who were crazy about them.

    JAMLI, TRIVAN, BRETZIE and JAEVON's now have their own solid followers. The fans have now accepted each pairings and forums like PinoyExchange and sites like Facebook and twitter are somewhat peaceful. No more fan wars. No more bashings. Everyone was living a peaceful existence supporting the love team of their choice.

    James finished his shot first and saw Bret, Ryan and Jack in one corner. He saw Jack took something out from his bag and showed it to Bret.

    James cant seemed to stop himself from disliking Jack. For James, Jack is always acting so full of himself. He was always with Devon, bringing her stuff, laughing with her, sometimes touching her, and that James new is the main reason why he doesnt like Jack.

    He looked at Devon and saw that she was alone, he really wanted to talk to her. He misses her smile, her laughter, even they way she hits him. It seemed like these days all those are meant for Jack. He checked around and saw that Ann and the girls were nowhere, and looked at her again. She looked up and saw him staring and smiled. This was his chance!

    James: Hey, Im done with my shoot. Where's everyone.
    Devon: Didnt they tell you? They had to shoot in another studio. You want to sit?
    James: No I like to stand here and just stare at you. I missed you. You're always with Jack!!!
    Devon: Hahaha.. Well, Uhmmm, Were friends.
    James: Devon I want a massage.
    Devon: hahaha.. No massage! or me first then Ill massage you.
    James: Ok let's go to my Van, the driver is there
    Devon: hahaha.. NOOOOOO.. (with hampas sa arms ni DD) haha.. Ill sit you stand then massage my back.
    James: Are you gonna have your operation soon?
    Devon: My savings are not yet enough. But Im hoping I could do it soon.
    James: How about school? Hey remember when I said we'll go to the same college together. Any college of your choice. That's still on ok?
    Devon: Haha. Pass your Aussie exam first, then pass the UPCAT, I told you right I deferred my enrollment there for a year.

    James was busy touching her back, massaging her if you call it. He really misses this! Then he saw Jack approach them.

    James: You're boyfriend is coming.
    Devon: (Hampas ulit) Don't be stupid. Hehe

    James didnt like the way she smiled. It was like the smile she gives out when Bret, Ryan and Ivan would tease the two of them. The smile of secret mystery. His heart was thumping and he doesnt like what he is seeing.

    Jack: James stop touching her.. hahahha.. let me do it.
    Devon: NOO ui im ok. Done done done.
    Then she looked at James, touched his arm, smiled and then said I owe you a massage!


    Chapter 15

    James, Bret,Ryan and James were at Starbucks waiting for the coaster that will bring them to Cavite. The girls were still inside getting their hair done. First time that they will shoot on location. Everyone will be there. And the best thing is that they just got their first paychecks yesterday.
    When James saw how much he earned for the month. He could'nt believe it. One of the perks of being part of showbiz. People probably wondered if he got his prize already. He hasnt. But he will. In a month's time, the management promised. The Big6 will finally get their monetary prize in a month!
    He's excited for the Asian Tour. He knows who he wanted to bring, but he doesnt want to have high hopes. Knowing how the fans would react. How her mom would probably react. So he asked his dad to come along. It would be the first time in months that he will have a week long break. He cant wait.
    Jack entered with a big smile on his face. He approached them and said.
    Jack: Man dyo know what I did for my first paycheck? I spent it all!! hahaha..
    Bret: Oh really? I asked my mom to put mine in the bank. I really want to save man.
    Jack: Well, I saw this really great gift which is quite expensive, and I cant help myself. I bought it then and there.
    Ryan: oh prechent? Is it for me?
    Jack: hahaha.. Here look.
    Jack took out a small box and opened it. There inside is a neclace made of gold with a butterfly pendant. Jack asked them to look closely. And James saw what he wanted them to see. On each side of the butterfly wings, there engraved are the Letters J and D.
    Bret: WOW!!!!!! NICE.. Is this what I think It means? J&D? Level up ka na ha!
    Jack: Guys I tell you, she is perfect. She's cool. Beautiful, Nice. Im so into her.
    Ivan. Oh man, that looks expensive.
    Jack: She's worth every penny! Ive been thinking things through and I'll propose to her. Tomorrow. I want her to be my girfriend man. I cant wait. I can feel that she likes me too. She's liking me more and more everyday.

    They were busy talking about Jack's plan nobody noticed that there was one guy in the group who kept still and was deadly quiet. James Reid is losing time, and he needs to make a plan.

    The shoot was over and everyone was tired. They had a long travel back to the loop because of the heavy traffic. Bret noticed that James have been quiet since morning but didnt voice out his observation since he was tired himself.
    The boys were sitting in the first two rows, napping, The girls though tired are still chitchatting.
    Tricia: Three month na pala tayo next month! we will be renewing contracts di bah?
    Devon: Yeah, bitaw noh! time flies so fast when youre having fun jud. Hay I hope marenew jud ako contract. Second sem is coming and my sisters are all going to school.
    Ann: Yeah sure ko ui that out contracts will be renewed. Nice baya ang reviews. And number 1 pa jud!
    James was just sitting there listening, thinking, what to do. what to do? If Jack would propose tomorrow, would Devon say yes? Most likely not. But he can never be too sure.

    Then were already in the loop and everyone was so tired they all wanted to go home.
    James:I brought my car guys. Im off to Caloocan, Im really tired but Im meeting my mom there. She's at some relatives. Who's on my way?
    Joe: Kami pare on the way. Sama na lang kami ni Eslove sa yo. Tsaka Devon. Kunin ka ba ng Mama mo?
    Devon: OO. sabi ko txan ko *** pag pauwi na kaso bat empty tayo lahat. ano ba naman? Sama na lang ako sa inyo. Caloocan naman sa amin.
    Ann: Can I come too? Then we can both go home to Makati.
    Tricia: Ann di ba you promised to ride with me. Malapit lang tayo and you know I get so bored riding in the car alone.
    Fretzie: Guys uwi na kami ha. Nandyan na Dad ni Bret, they'll drop me off sa bahay. See you monday!
    Jack: Devon, I really wanted na ihatid ka kaso my dad wanted me home immediately. My driver is there na nga.
    Devon: Ok lang. sama na lang ako kina Papa Bear. Ill see you tomorrow.

    And so they each left in separate groups. Ann, Tricia Ryan, Kazel and Ivan together,and then James, Joe, Eslove and Devon.

    James went inside the drivers seat. Joe entered the passenger side. Eslove and Devon at the back. James smiled. He made a plan and acted on it. Thirty minutes later, with Joe and Eslove gone, James maneuvered the car around with a surprised Devon. Tagaytay here we come!

    CHAPTER 16

    James slumped on the plane seat. Still holding his IPAD. Still gazing at their picture. He remembered that night. That epic night in the highlands of Tagaytay. The night he professed, they both did, their feelings for one another.

    "Hoy saan tayo pupunta? Ba't ka lumiko?" Devon asked him when he maneuvered the car around.
    He looked at her and smiled.
    James: You owe me this. When we were inside you told me we'd go malling and go to Bora but we never did.
    Devon: James bah. my mom will kill me. Where are you bringing me man?
    James: Devooooon, please.. I just need to talk to someone right now. Im confused.
    Devon: Sana sina Joe na lang sinama mo!
    James: I need to talk to a girl. So I can get a woman's perspective. Devon I think I like someone.
    Devon with total disbelief said " SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?"
    James: Please, be a friend to me!!! Besides remember you owe me this trip.
    Devon: What will I do with my mom? She'll go crazy with worry. Basin atakin yun sa puso.
    James: Dont worry about your mom.. She probably thinks were still in location. You told her we will be super late right? I heard you talk to Fretzie!
    Devon: HUH?? Buang!!!Asa ta ui? AYY Where are we going?
    James: Sit tight and enjoy the ride.

    Then with a resigned sigh she looked at him and then smiled.

    The drive to Tagaytay seemed so quick. They were talking and laughing and all the worries seemed far gone.

    James looked at his passenger and smiled. Tonight is the night. When Jack told them what his plan was, James realized something. He was completely jealous of Jack. Because of Devon. Because Jack was not scared to admit what he feels. And James admitted it then and there, that he is crazy in love. with her. Devon. he's caught, hook line and stinker. And hell would break loose before he'd let anyone have her.

    It was already dusk when they arrived and the sun was setting. They got out of the car.
    James: You hungry?
    Devon: No. James this is the first time Ive been here. Amazing!! Thank you ha.. even if you just brought me here to tell me about your love issues.
    James: There's a gazebo there oh. lets go take a seat.
    Devon: Drama ka talaga. Gusto mu lang makipagchikahan then you had to drive all the way here.
    They went to one of the gazebo's and sat. Then James looked at her and smiled.

    James: Liked it? Isnt this worth all the fuzz you will get from your parents later?
    Devon just smiled. All thoughts of the punishments she'll prolly get are far from her mind.
    When James told her they are coming to Tagaytay, she was both excited and scared. Kinilig siya because she has heard stories of how romantic the place is. Scared because she doesnt know what his intention was, and what her reaction would be.
    Would he really be telling her about the girl he likes? At the back of her mind she is hoping that the girl is her. But with how things are. And considering that for the past couple of months they've been a bit distant she really doesnt know.
    Devon: Oh ano na? who do you like ba?
    James: uii.. you fishing?
    Devon: HUH?? you said were coming here to talk about the girl you like di ba?
    James looked at her and gave her another one of his smiles. Yung parang nakakaloko. The smile that had so many girls go crazy about.
    "Isn't it obvious?"


    Chapter 17

    "Isn't it obvious?"
    Devon was so surprised by the reply that she looked away from him. Did she hear him right? But the statement was so vague she doesnt want to assume things.
    So intead of answering his question, she pretended not to hear.
    Devon: huh? what did you say?
    James: hahaha.You didn't hear me? Why are you pretending that you didnt hear what I said.
    Devon looked so uncomfortable James can't stop laughing.
    Devon: Your crazy.
    James: Why am I crazy?
    Devon: I dont know. You just are!
    James: So what did I say?
    Devon: I dont know!
    James: You do! I know you do.. hahahahaha
    Devon: Hayyyyy AMbot nimo! Let's go home na" Then she started to stand up. James grabbed her arms.
    James: SIT! So now you know.
    Devon: I dont know nga!
    A hint of a smile is now slowly forming on her mount.
    James sat beside her, then slowly, he took both her hands on his.
    James: Let's stop playing jokes. I brought you here to tell you something. The first time I saw you, I knew you'd be a great friend. Then we grew close and something in me changed.
    Devon: James, stop.
    James: Devon, you changed me, I knew you did. When we were inside Kuya's house, you were the one who transformed me. Bret noticed that. I think everyone did. So please listen to me and believe me. I dont know when it happened or how it happened. All i Know is that Im crazy about you!! I know things are crazy but all I want is to be with you!
    The smile that she was suppose to let out turned into a frown. Then James saw the tears slowly coming out.
    She looked down and started crying. She then looked up at him. Removed one of her hands from his. Then slowly, she touched his face and said. "James, as much as I would want to, I dont think we will every work out.!"

    Si Mitch….
    ….may gustong patunayan sa sarili
    ….wari may hinahanap siya na di niya alam
    ….gusto maging malaya kesa sa maranya niyang buhay
    ….naghahanap ng tunay na kaligayahan
    ….nangangarap ng kalinga ng isang buong pamilya
    ….at ang lahat na luho sa mundo sa kanya ay abot-kamay lang.

    Kung ikaw ba ay nakatira sa isang maliit na dampa na nakatirik sa isa malapad na lupain ng mga akala mo’y sinumpa ng Diyos na bahagi ng Maynila, ni minsan na nasagi sa panaginip mo na makakaahon ka sa klase ng pamumuhay na meron kayo?
    Paano kung ilang henerasyon na ganon talaga ang buhay niyo? May mga nangarap din pero nabigo at merong nagtagumpay pero di man lang lumingon sa pinaggalingan? At lalo na mas marami na ang pangarap ay nananatiling pangarap lamang.


    Paano naman kung “everything good in life is just within your reach”? Wala sa bukabularyo mo ang salitang “magtiis”, “pagpasensyahan” at “things happen”? Nakukuha mo lahat ng luho at wala kang gusto na di mo nakuha? Your life is just the way what you want it to be ang drama mo.

    Pero sa lahat na to, there’s still some missing puzzles sa buhay mo. Masaya ka naman sa mga kaya mong bilhin at kamtin, pero hindi ka maligaya. At dahil dun mas gusto mong hanapin yun pero ang tanong, “saan at papano”?


    ABANGAN ang nakaka-excite na fanfic--- “Si Jessie at si Mitch”

    Si Jessie At si Mitch

    Part 1 – Si Jessie

    Sa isang maliit na dampa sa Tondo----isa lang doon sa libu-libong pamilya----na wari mo’y may sarili silang mundo. Yung mga taong nangangarap minsang makakain ng “spaghetti”, “hamburger” o “pizza”. Yung bawat gabi, ang mga bata ay naghihintay sa ama na galing sa pagdedelihensiya at bitbit-bitbit ang hapunan ng buong pamilya. Minsan o mahigit sa madalas ay umuwing nakayuko ang ama at walang dala sabay sabing umutang na lang muna ng sardinas sa tindahan sa kanto. Ang ibig sabihin ay hahaba na naman ang lista ng utang nila. Kahapon lang ay inimbargo na na ng tindera ang natitira nilang transistor radio.
    Nang gabing yun, umuwi si Mang Mando na matamlay dahil alam niya matutulog na naman ang mga anak na walang laman ang sikmura. Buong araw siya tumambay sa pier para magkarga ng bagahe pero walang dumating na barko dahil sa nagbabadyang bagyo.



    CARMEN (C): Wala na tayong magagawa, Armando. May naluto naman akong konting hapunan diyan. May kanin at saka kanina pumunta kami sa bahay kung saan namamasukang labandera si Pacita kaya tumulong ako kasi may sakit daw yong kusinera nila kaya yun nadala ko yong tira nila at humingi ako ng kangkong sa kapitbahay nila.
    MANDO(Ma): O sige na….(patingin –tingin sa paligid na ari may hinahanap)….maghain ka na at kumain na tayo. O saan na ba si Jessie?
    C: Nasa kapitbahay lang yata yun ay nakikinood ng TV. ( habang naghahanda ng mesa)
    (Nagtinginan lang ang tatlo nilang anak--- Joseph (15), Jasmin (10) at Jesebell (8)---alam nila talaga kung saan si Jessie.)
    MA: Tawagin nyo nga siya. Hay naku gabing-gabi.
    JO: Ah eh….sss…sige po. (papalabas na sana nang dumating si Jessie na parang ayos na ayos at may dalang bag at supot.)

    JA at JE: Si ate, si ate andito na….
    MA: Saan ka galing, akala ko ba nasa kabilang bahay ka at nakikinood ng TV
    C: Saan ka naman galing?
    J: Pasensya na , Nay di ako nagpaalam sa inyo. E kasi…..sumama po ako kina Kate at Boboy. Piesta pos a kabilang barangay at sumali po kami sa contest. Nanalo po kami…(may dinukot sa loob ng bulsa at binigay sa ina)..ito po..konti lang yan…at ito bumili ako ng pansit at saka tinapay po. Wag na po kayong magalit, tay, nay. Hilig ko naman talagang sumayaw, bonus lang po na nananalo kami.
    MA: Wag kang mag-alala , anak basta nga ba di lang sagabal sa pag-aaral mo.
    J: Hay hindi po talaga. Sa halip po na maglakwatsa kami, nagpa-praktis po kami palagi.
    C: Hay naku, sa susunod magpaalam ka. Akala naman tuloy nasa kina Gloria ka at nanonood ng TV. At naku, hanggang diyan lang yan sa piyesta ha…
    (Lahat sila ay umupo na sa harap ng mesa upang kumain.)

    MA: anong ibig mong sabihin, Carmen?
    C: Nabalitaan mo yong anak ni Neneng diyan sa kanto. Kumakalat ang tsismis na yong anak….yung dati mong kababata na si Agnes…yung palagi ding sumasayaw-sayaw kasama niyo. Ayun sumasayaw ng walang saplot sa isang bar sa may Pasay. Mas matanda lang sa yo yun, Jessica ng dalawang taon. Di pa yun nakapagtapos ng high school.
    MA: Pinalaki nating mabuti si Jessie, Carmen. Kahit hirap tayo sa buhay,di siya gagawa non.
    C: Malay mo.
    JE: Sumasayaw po ng walang saplot? Anong ibig sabihin non, tay?
    C: Ayan itigil nyo nya yan, nakikinig si Jessebel.
    MA: Ikaw lang naman ang nagsabi non. Hindi kami.
    JO: Ang ibig sabihin sumasayaw na walang sapatos.
    JE: Ay ganon po? Buti na lang di nasugatan ang paa niya.
    J: Oo nga no, Joseph…buti na lang malinis yong sahig ng stage.
    C: O siya bukas may pasok pa kayo ha kaya pagkatapos nito diretso ng tulog.
    ***************************************************************
    Madilim ang buong bahay at tulog na ang lahat maliban kay Jessie. Pinagmasdan lang ang mga kapatid na katabi sa isang banig at ang magulang sa isang gilid ng bahay. Silang anim sa isang silid na bahay. Lumaki siya ng ganito
    wala yatang sekreto ang isa’t isa dahil lahat sila nagkikita-kita sa isang bubong ng kanilang bahay.
    Tumayo siya at binuksan ang munting bintana sa may kusina. Tahimik ang paligid para sa kanya kahit na may maririnig siyang mga taong nagtatawanan at mga tunog habang pinaghahalo yong madyong sa kapitbahay. Meron ding nag-aaaway sa kabila at may umiiyak na bata. Ito ang mundo na kinakigisnan niya. Para sa kanya, musika sa tenga pero nang nakita niya ang mga tala sa langit, nakaramdam siya ng katahimikan at kapayapaan ng loob na kasama niya ang mga mahal niya sa buhay at buo sila. May maliit na ngiti sa labi dahil sa simpleng kaligayahan. Maya-maya may nakita siyang shooting star, nilagay ang kamay sa dibdib at pumikit sabay hiling sa isang pangarap----para sa kanyang pamilya.************************************************

    [crouching-tiger-disappearing-spoiler]

    HE ACTUALLY REALLY CARES
    As time passes by, we clearly are leading to different paths. I chose to be on the limelight. She chose to do things slowly. She wants to finish her studies while taking every opportunity that came her way in showbiz. Because of that, I rarely see her these days.
    Sometimes, I wish that we never left the PBB House. It was more fun there than in the outside world. At that house, we are all equal. I am just James. She was just Devon. Though, as she has always emphasized, we are opposites, in that house, we can freely show how we care for each other. Yes, there were times that she’ll avoid me for a reason I didn’t know, I can always chase her. Chase her until she would have no choice but to notice me. But now, it is different.
    The outside world is so damn big that she can hide from me and I won’t have freakin time to find her. She’s avoiding me again. And it is damn frustrating! I wanna talk to her. Really talk to her. Ask her questions that have been in my mind when I think of her. But even that simple wish cannot be granted because of the status that I have.
    I am Robert James Reid. The big winner. The man that is chased by thousands of fan girls who claim to love him. The man who owes so much to his fans so he would do anything to make them happy. And sadly, Devon is out of the picture. They didn’t want us to be together for some reasons I find it hard to accept.
    But I am not losing hope. One day, when this whole charade ends, I will chase her again and settle things with her. Then I will ask her to be my girl. If I am lucky enough to be chosen to be by her side on that day, I swear to God not to make her cry.
    I will patiently wait for that day.


    BEHIND THE SMILES
    It was another though day. Today is finals week so I, together with my college friends have been stressful these days. Aside from that, I have to consider my rehearsals in ASAP. Unlike my PBB friends, I am not so seen in TV since I chose to have a full load in school. I have to do it for my family. Showbiz is not permanent. Aside from that, a lot of people didn’t like me when I was in PBB.
    It hurts, I admit. I can’t understand their reasons for hating me so much. Up until now, they still brag the issues I have with Tricia when it’s now over. Tricia and I are not close, but we became friends. In fact, there were times that she stood up for me. There’s also the issue with James. I can’t believe that I am branded as a flirt because I became too close to him.
    But I am Devon. I am bubbly. I am cheerful. I can’t allow someone to see that I am weak. Especially my family. If they see me breakdown, they will surely worry about me. And that is the least thing that I want to happen. So for them, I have to smile.


    HAIRTIE

    “Hi, Devon!” Ivan greeted me. I waved him as a sign of my greeting. I knew I looked like a mess. I literally ran my way here on the rehearsal area for the tough ten dance number in ASAP.
    “Stuck at traffic again?” Tricia teasingly asked me and I nodded, still catching my breath. It still amazed me how I like Tricia now. She is such a sweet girl.
    “Where are the others?” I asked. I noticed that aside from the three of us, the room was empty.
    “Well, they said they’re hungry so they grab something to eat,” Ivan answered. I just shrugged and bring out my laptop. I have many things to accomplish. I am so occupied with school now. In fact, dance rehearsals and ASAP appearances are the only bonding moments I have with these guys.
    “Hey, Devon’s now here.” Bret said after their not so quiet entrance. I just looked up at him at nod boyishly. I really have to finish this crap so I can join these people.
    “And she’s not with us again.” I heard someone commented. It was Ivan.
    “Sorry guys! I’ll join you later!” I assured them, but my eyes are still in the screen of my laptop. Then I fixed my hair. It is irritating me. I am a TV personality so if I can’t look good, I have to be at least presentable. But I know I look like Sadako now.
    Then I saw a hand holding a hair tie. I look at him and I saw James smiling at me.
    “I think you need this,” he said smiling that I can’t help but smile back. I miss this dude smiling at me like that. We rarely see each other these days. He is busy with his TV program.
    “Thanks.”
    “But you have to give it back to me later.”
    “Well, as far as I remember, it was mine,” I said to him. I knew that was the hair tie I gave him months ago.
    “It was yours. But now, it is mine.”
    I was stunned by the possessiveness in his voice. Then I looked at him intently. The smile is gone and there is something in his eyes that made my heart skip a beat.
    “Guys! Can we now practice?” That voice made me not focus on James. That was our choreographer. We gave an enthusiastic “yeah!” and went to the positions given to us.


    PIGGY BACK RIDES
    She is the reason why my life has found its new meaning.

    She is the sunshine that gives light to the darkness in my heart.. the angel that led me back to where I should start and where I am supposed to go. She is my greatest treasure. She has this impact in my life yet she didn't have the slightest clue. As of now, she is my life. I will do everything to make her happy. My angel...

    Unfortunately, I am not the man who can do this for her. I am just one of her friends that has the honor to tease her, to see her smile, to make her laugh... I can only watch. Watch her laugh hard to Lyan jokes, frown when Tatay Bret tease her, blush when I tease her to DD, cry silently when DD is with Toot...

    Just like now...

    "Momay," I called her name softly that she looked up abruptly. I was stunned to see her have tears in her lovely face though I expected it. She was always like this when she sees DD with her girlfriend...but when no one is around...

    I can't bear the pain and confusion in her eyes so I pulled her closer and hold her tight.

    "It's okay, kiddo," I said with so much agony. I can't stand it when she cries. I kissed her hair and she cried harder. It seems that the pain is too much for her to handle. Why does it have to be this angel? She doesn't deserve to experience pain...any pain for that matter. But I let her. I can only do this much. Sadly.

    "I made your shirt wet, I'm sorry."

    "No problem, Momay."

    I can still see pain through her forced smile. If only she can transfer her agony to me, I will gladly accept it...

    "Hey, Momay, wanna let me piggy back ride you?"

    "Sure!" She smiled brightly I can't help but smile back.

    "Aww, you're heavy!" I jokingly complained. She pulled my hair. "And you're getting violent again!"

    She just laughed.

    They say piggy back rides symbolize the willingness of the guy carrying the girl to pass the burdens and sufferings of the one he is carrying... If only piggy back rides can do that, I am willing to do it every moment she silently cries...

    .obsession, compulsion.
    a lovely dance of hope

    chapter 1.

    Carnivals. Fairs. Festivals.

    There didn’t seem to be much of a difference on any of the three, and DD doubted if there really is any. In his cynical mind, the invention of words is simply a phenomenon where human beings wish to satiate their cravings for a more extensive vocabulary.

    Anyway, it’s none of his business.

    But then again, none ever is.

    Or that’s what he believed he thought.

    The sun fading in the west marked the last traces of the spring sunshine, leaving behind an afternoon that evoked summer and its warm, cloudless weather. Its light’s rays and breeze offered an aura of life to the myriad of colors encompassing the full essence of the carnival they were in. Yes, it was summer once again, and with it comes another break from the chaotic schedules they were so used to have. It was time to relax and enjoy life to the fullest. It was time to exhaust all the energies of youth anyone could still extend to their hearts’ content.

    None of that mattered to a certain dark-haired Aussie, though, who, in his cynicism, had never seen the difference of the seasons except for what they have to represent. Neither season gave him the rest and the solitude he wished, noting that he was always an in-demand model/actor/singer in any time of the year.

    Like what he is exactly experiencing this very second. Not that he took pleasure in experiencing every part of it.

    For with every touch and hug they snatched from him, he was only coaxed to silently command that he be granted the privacy he needed right now. With every question they throw at him, he was only reminded of the redundancy of his life as he answered each one of them for the—he lost count—time. With every girlish shriek he encountered, he was only personifying Heartlessness more and more. And with every flash they stun him with, he was only escalating his belief that every picture they took from him is as flat as a body without a soul.

    Yet all of them seep into nothingness—as trifling as thin air itself—as he calmly took in the view that was laid bare before him…across miles of cameras, ambush interviews, shrieks, stolen pecks-on-the cheeks and hugs.

    MM. Not his anymore.

    Compared to her, he is as trifling as thin air itself.
    It is how you drown right after she has captured you that sets her apart from all the rest, drowning in the abysmal depths of her eyes. Her aura will surround the whole atmosphere, and after you see her, you’ll fall under her spell and into her very own world. And what a wonderful world she has. Time and space mold into nothingness when you are around her as if the two entities both stopped in their venture, just waiting for her next word to move again. Everything is so wonderfully simple and beautiful with her that you could never ask for more.

    DD should know. She always was the only one who could drown him with her eyes, her personality, her smile. And she always will be the only one who could drown him still.

    But seeing her there without him, knowing with a pang that he is here watching her from afar with the miles keeping them apart, he had never felt so vulnerable and lonely as today.

    Because all he could think of now is the fact that all he truly needed is her--or he’d rather not have any of what he is being forced with now at all.

    But then, he remembered his promise, and though it seems so hard to keep, he’ll still keep it.

    He tried to escape the bitterness he felt by looking away from his sudden memory of MM by widening his gaze to a bigger part of the carnival while impassively veering away from the crowd that had ruthlessly choked him. In one corner he got a clearer view of Bretzie at one booth. He also saw his sister with her boyfriend kissing over two ice cream cones they held with their arms entwined, while Jenny was trying to push Ryan into the House of Mirrors, apparently wanting to spend more time with her boyfriend as the latter was also experiencing the same fate as his with the smaller crowd around him.

    He observed them as they made their own worlds, which in turn made them look so happy and so carefree. He observed, his heart twitching, that everyone had a real partner…except him. It hadn’t unnerved him that much before (how glad was he to be relieved of a love team, even for this one slight moment), but now he felt the bitterness consume him with its deadly grip.

    Because all he could STILL think of now is the fact that all he truly, really needed is her--or he’d rather not have anyone or anything at all.

    But then again, he still remembered his promise, and though it seems so hard to keep, he’ll still keep it.

    So he again tried moving away, looking away, do anything that would distract him from her. But just like the picture from the wall of his room, and just like the sleepless nights he encountered these days, and just like the thoughts that would unconsciously scald his mind with burned ashes of regret, he realized that he could never get enough of her as his mind clearly projected her image, sitting in that bench, just as alone as he is though she’s smiling contentedly and sweetly at the views before her…

    With hesitation, he silently turned his way towards her again…only to find himself catching the painful shock that rose up in his throat. His white shirt paled in comparison to his deathly complexion, the regret and the pain and the anger and the jealousy killing him, consuming him, tearing him to pieces, destroying him and his spirit, grabbing him by his heart…

    And they wouldn’t let go.

    He never should’ve just looked the other way. He never should’ve just looked her way again.

    He never should’ve just seen Ayven with his camera as he took pictures of her in every angle. He never should’ve just seen MM glare playfully as she tried to take the camera away from him. He never should’ve just seen him take her hand then and whisper something in her ear, making her nudge him in the process as she tried to control her laughter. He never should’ve just seen take her and her bag as they started walking the other way, Ayven softly tapping her shoulder as he whispered in her ear again, while this time she didn’t even bother to control the soft laugh she had let out. And he never should’ve just seen her take his hand while she gently led him to a store where she had pointed to a guitar on display, smiling at him solemnly.

    By then he never would have regretted being in this place. He never would’ve grieved over the fact that he is here, occupied with all that nonsense while she is over there…happy without him but with somebody else. He never would’ve just wished for that year to pass too quickly. He never would’ve wished to turn back time and have her again and make it all right. He never would’ve wished to just scream his lungs out.

    He never would’ve wished for the unjustifiable resentment to just go away and leave him to wither and die.

    But, oh, by Gods, she had never looked this happy, so intense, so relaxed and so free with him--not even once. And this simple fact had the inimitable manner to hurt him powerfully so...

    “Daydreaming again, DD?”

    That voice. It had saved him again from his anguish, while her arm brazenly snaked around his figure and found his forearm. Then the voice was coupled with a pair of black eyes that looked up at him candidly. The other hand was coyly pointing at a booth where a teddy bear was resting, along with other toys.

    He had blinked his eyes disinterestedly, making Lauren laugh that sparkling laugh of hers which held no traces of sarcasm. Her voice must’ve been loud enough for it had caught each of their attention. All of their eyes had been trained on him for a long moment of seconds. At the corner of his eye he could sense Ayven, Lyan and Bret tense uncertainly, while Fretzie was looking at him with wary eyes. Jenny looked worried as she looked at him then at MM and then at him again.

    Only Lauren’s BF and MM were oblivious.

    And their own worlds had all dissipated and had diffused as one. Solely on him.

    How does a caged bird feel when he’d see those eyes engulfing him, trapping him, enslaving him…?

    “Oh…you know, Lauren, don’t mind him when he’s in that mood…actually, DD is just always like that—”

    “—that’s right, Lauren!! Bret is telling you the truth. Just like MM, DD never really liked—” and Jenny had caught her tongue before Ayven’s glare could reach her, but not without giving him a stronger glare in return, surprising Ayven—and eventually souring his once happy mood in the process, while she instantly turned to her boyfriend for support. “Lyan, look!! Have you seen that—?”

    After that, all tried to act as if nothing ever happened at all, as they all tried to resume to their former businesses.

    And since he is DD…and since being the DD, he doesn’t judge, question, object or care…and since he supposedly hated women like MM…and since he didn’t give a damn to MM at all…and since it is Toot he truly loved, he was trying to occupy himself with the clear view of the sky and be truly out of it…

    Only to realize that he’s only fuelling the fire of his tormented soul as he gazed at the sky that so reminded him of cloud gazing days he never thought he could remember again. Only to realize that wherever he’d go, wherever he’d look, all he could think of is her…

    A tap on his hand had softly roused him. That simple touch, though quite careful and fleeting, was enough to dissuade his unfocused attention and turn to…her.

    He actually knew it was her.

    Nobody’s touch was that gentle, yet firm.

    Nobody’s touch—ever—had this effect on him.

    Their eyes met.

    She was smiling comfortingly, trying to tell him that everything will be alright. Just like their time together at the PBB house before. Just like that night…

    Kami, if only she knew.

    Hell, he needed to scream.

    But she smiled up at him again, her touch tightening a little, and this time he couldn’t stop his heart from hammering rapidly, squeezing itself out. He tried ignoring it, reminding himself again that this is not her girlfriend. He dispensed that moment completely, smiling that small smirk of his as he looked away impassively…

    Nobody noticed how her face fell. And nobody noticed the sudden darkening of Ayven’s eyes when he saw DD and MM’s nearness. For the others, it was purely natural—and therefore, negligible—that Ayven took hold of her hand once again and led her unobtrusively away from him.

    But MM noticed it. And so did DD.

    Especially DD.

    And for that split second, for that briefest of interlude, he just realized why he felt so cold, upset, uncomfortable, irritated and uptight. He hated this ignoring, dispensing and pretending and was tired of it all. For that sudden strike of the hand, he wanted nothing more than for the truth to be out, no matter what.

    So he could really be selfishly happy, for once. So he could finally be with her, because he had been foolishly denying himself this for so long.

    He knew it was foolish to feel it, but juices brought by jealousy are just so powerful, just so contagious and just so addictive that he felt it nonetheless. It was his possessiveness then which made him hate Ayven the moment he knew the man was trying to get MM. And it is his possessiveness now which made him hate Ayven still.

    But just like before, he still didn’t do anything about it.

    Because now it is still Ayven who’s already taking the lead, with MM’s hand holding on to him. And even if her eyes were questioning in confusion, it only took Ayven to softly look at her and whisper in her ear as he efficiently led her to another far away booth for the uncertainty to dissipate.

    MM looked around her, but nobody met her gaze. Nobody noticed so they could meet her gaze.

    She looked back at DD again. Smiling reassuringly again for his sake. He felt his insides tremble, that scream in him getting louder and louder and more vicious it would be so blissful if it were granted release…

    It was only a matter of seconds before DD casually and coldly looked away.

    Again.

    And all along, Lauren looked on, thinking.

    .

    ...

    .

    chapter 2.

    What is the color of frustration?

    Would it differ according to how much you bear? Would it make a kaleidoscope or a rainbow in your heart that—in effect—you could overcome it with its vibrance and beauty? Would it even choose the color it would like to be bathed with? Would it heighten its intensity in ranges and ranges of invisible light if it is all the more confusing? Would it shift in monochromes, hues and tints if the bearer also harbors conflicts within herself?

    MM had to know. For she may both be loved and hated with her no-nonsense attitude and naïveté, she at least should have also been commended for her inquisitiveness and wit.

    She is an honor student, after all. And she had fared more than very well in her classes. Even if her scoliosis inhibited her from stressful activities sometimes, she still managed to be on the tops’ list. She loved music, and she especially had already mastered using the guitar and the piano. Surely you couldn’t have that much of an achievement if you do not at least have a critical and analyzing mind?

    Yes, her brain may be a little off-balance as of the moment, but it was not lazy. One thing she loved about her brain is that it more than fought for her. It never stops learning, and it never fails to give her moments of reminiscing, wondering, analyzing, studying and questioning, like what all normal brains would do.

    Therefore, she is neither blind nor dumb nor idiotic. And if there is one thing she could be sure of, it is the fact that she is uncomfortable being treated as such.

    The reason she may be internally blabbering right now could be accounted for something—rather, someone—that triggered her to do so.

    A set of inconsistencies. A case of heavily veiled slip-ups. And they all unsettle her. Confuse her.

    She had been so out of touch of reality—her own reality—for far too long already that she wanted to instantly forget everything and just leave out those that make her happy.

    But she wanted all the trimmings. And even if this pretension had gone for a year, she still wanted closure.

    Good friends are supposed to be honest to each other, right?

    It was obvious DD hadn’t done quite an exemplary job on doing such.

    She needed to think. And so she continued to sit on the bench, refused her friends’ invitation to go somewhere else as she tried to get her thoughts into some kind of order before her emotions could take over.

    And even after all that happened, she still remembered that night, a year ago…

    --

    BORA, 1 year ago

    If only she just stayed at her home, took care of her family and studied. If only she refused this invitation in the first place. Then she wouldn’t have the burden of trying to ignore him, avoid him and control the urge to cry so that she couldn’t destroy the happy mood of her friends. While silently she was pining for him that he at least try to approach her, to make an effort to walk beside her, to look at her, to ask her what’s wrong, and at the same time slowly stab herself to death as she watch the two of them getting closer every minute as his feats became bolder and more patent.

    She’s disgusted with herself thinking about her stupidity.

    Perhaps she really is foolish. The man obviously is already in love with somebody else, and here she is, still pining for his attention—for God’s sake. She tried controlling the self-mocking laugh that rose in her throat. Maybe she really is mentally challenged after all. Maybe even sicker than what she seems.

    Really, didn’t she just love hurting herself?

    Or maybe the saner part of her knew better. Maybe it was the saner part of her which motivated her to come here so that she could see the truth for herself. So that it could finally open her eyes and make her accept that she’d lost the fight rather than burden herself in self-denial and leave it alone until it becomes more than what her heart could handle.

    You cannot continue on mooning over a man who is clearly not interested in you even the slightest bit.

    He likes somebody else. And that somebody else was someone she could never hate (even if she was the one who took DD away from her) no matter how much she tried. For that somebody else is simply one of her friends, simply the one who helped her become what she is right now.

    So in a way, she really couldn’t blame their fans. She really couldn’t blame him for blurting that out when he was interviewed in The Buzz. She really couldn’t blame DD for falling in love with a certain Toot. Especially a sweet and diligent person like Toot.

    But that also didn’t mean that letting go is much easier and less painful. Why can’t she just have him all for herself, didn’t she love him enough?

    But as soon as the questions rose in her mind, she already knew the answer.

    A cold sensation seized her at that. How more awful could it get the next time, to get to see him and her again in another event while you still harbor a certain thought, a certain hope in your heart, that next time it will be different and everything you see after all is nothing, nothing to be afraid of at all—only to find out that it had actually gone all the more clearer with his advancing gestures?

    DD had never been a man of words. With the few moments she had with him, she had come to realize that. He may be coldly arrogant and cruel with his actions and with the words he would actually blurt out, but she knew that at least, it was never his intention to directly hurt her.

    She knew because he never took advantage of her after she had given him all the opportunities that she could spin—like those massages. Yes, most of the times, she had more than literally thrown herself at him (something she was never proud of doing, thus again marking her stupidity), but he never even took those openings to foist on her. And because of that, he only made her love him more.

    He was nice to her, in a way. Really patient, though somewhat coldly. And very straightforward. He’d tell her what he didn’t like about her without a second thought. Even told her what she could never expect from him. And because of that, she had come to love him for his honesty.

    And even if he didn’t say that what’s between them is something to be thought about, he’d still join her as if giving her a chance with him, while he seemed to test the waters himself. And she had loved him because he still gave her hope for that day when he will come to love her, too.

    So she waited. And waited. Waited while she hanged on for that little piece of hope, of love.

    But the day never came.

    That day was too late in coming. It wasn’t able to catch up before he had found the one who had finally caught his heart without even trying. And even if he tried to be silent about it, she knew.

    She always knew. She knew before he did that it was finally over. She just couldn’t accept it.

    Because she’s both stupid and insane. Because she’s too selfish to only think about herself. Because she still wondered if he at least, had that something for her. Wondered if his patience with her boring presence was at least because he found her a little interesting. Wondered if he was only going out with her because Toot—she is not blind not to know that—was nowhere to be found. Wondered if his actions towards her were fuelled by hormones. Or pity.

    Unintentional it may be to him, but he had done the most awful thing he could ever do to her: making her favors because he pitied her.

    And it must have been the same pity he felt when he had finally found his love but couldn’t bluntly tell that to her face so he had to convey it in another way. But his actions only made her fervently wish that he could just say it to her, so it could give them the closure they both wanted.

    She didn’t know how to describe her feelings after knowing that. A mix of pain, self-resentment, hate, too much love…too much insanity…the thought that she must have appeared so disgusting that people had to take pity on her before they could do things for her.

    A tear trickled down her cheek, and she immediately swiped it with her arm before a lot more could fall to the ground. She had grown tired of all her masks and pretenses, so she’d come up to escape for a while, hoping to get back refreshed. Instead, her heart was even more shattered than before.

    She wouldn’t wait anymore. Why hope for something you already knew could never be yours? Why make him suffer when you could suffer alone? Why hold on to a love that had never existed?

    A dreadful loneliness came over her by just considering the thought. She stood up. Thinking got you nowhere—it only made things worse. Shaking a bit, she forcibly collected her bearings. Soon she will be trudging towards their place and give them her ‘best bubbly MM smile’ pretense, patiently reassuring them all with that voice of hers that she was finally worn out and could now sleep just fine. Then she’d get inside her room and at least try to look asleep before her friends could further ask her for questions.

    And in the morning, she will be refreshed once again and take on with her life—without trying to pester him or ask for his attention; he’ll get the hunch that she’s no longer his responsibility and that she’s letting him go already. Then she’ll hopefully move on years later as if nothing happened. She’ll take the chance to be on the dean’s list so she could give it all back to her parents. Yes, her parents. She’d pool all of her energy on her studies and on making her parents proud. She’ll study hard. Harder. She’ll make a name for herself; maybe even consider that modeling offer an agency had given her. And maybe after knowing that she’s ready—really ready—she’d search him out on her own and finally talk to him.

    She smiled slowly at her plans she had already laid out in front of her. They at least gave her a sense of direction, of normalcy. Reassuring herself that she was ready enough, she whirled around to return to the warmth and comfort of her friends.

    She was definitely not prepared for this. Definitely not expecting to find him standing only a few feet away from where she is. He was just standing there, not moving. Most of the features of his face were hidden in the shadows. His eyes were unreadable but she knew they were directed at her…were watching her.

    He seemed to be waiting for her.

    At any other given time, this simple act might have easily made her blush. At any other given time, her heart might have fluttered for this quite romantic moment.

    You cannot continue on mooning over a man who is clearly not interested in you even the slightest bit.

    And she knew that it was surely their friends again who looked for her. Undoubtedly spurned from concern and from their matchmaking tendencies. That was enough to stop any romantic musings she must have been tempted to cling to. She composed herself for the final time before she walked up towards the more lighted part of the beach, towards him, towards their friends. Her steps were steady; her eyes were unwavering, only focused on that lighted place where their friends would be.

    She moved past him at his side without stopping. She will not—will not—even give him one glance.

    His hand had easily seized her arm before she could continue moving on without him.

    In a few seconds, nobody dared to move. Nobody dared to break the tensed silence yet.

    She calmly snatched her arm back, not even bothering to look at her side to where he surely is. She knew it would be the end of her if she’d look at him and his beautiful eyes right now. But what do you expect from her really? When it comes to this man, all the resolve she had so painstakingly built would always seem to easily disintegrate.

    So she turned and looked at him, her mask falling into place. She did it so with a boyish, tough and reassuring smile and with an apologetic expression, the kind she was very known for. Her expression was enough to put him to a moment of confusion.

    “Thank you for the concern, DD, but I can return by myself. Good night.”

    He blinked, then narrowed his eyes. Whether it was because she spoke straight English or because she somewhat denied him, she will never know.

    She didn’t want to know anymore.

    And with a little wave, she gave him one last smile and proceeded on her way without him. She felt him still staring at her retreating form.

    There were no more words after that. She found out with that one encounter that she really hadn’t found the courage to say the words that were needed yet. But she also knew, at the back of her mind, that there really was no need for words anymore. DD is, after all, a very intelligent man. And a man of deep silence, someone who understood it better than anybody else.

    It might be painful for now, but she knew that in due time, she will heal.

    She will heal, she will get better, and she will live on.

    She just hoped it would come fast.

    chapter 3.

    MANILA, ten months ago

    She realized that even in school, she still had nowhere to escape.

    And that the rumors had a way of spreading rapidly, even in one of the most isolated places.

    Oh, my, that really is juicy.
    But…are you sure?
    Haven’t you read the tabloids recently? I swore I just saw one with a picture of the two of them together! Talk about the growing paparazzi in Makati but they really looked cute!
    Hey, I also saw the two of them get out from the ABS studio!! Some of their friends were also there, but they were close to each other!
    Oh, then it must also have been them I saw somewhat arguing playfully on that square—
    That must mean something! Ah, I guess DD’s not mine anymore.
    You are no match for Toot, Rina. So better drop it if I were y—
    What did I just hear? Are you telling me that Toot and DD are dating?
    Not only that, I also spotted them kissing—
    Why don’t you just shut up and make a fan club already?
    They already have one, idiot! It’s called JamToot—

    One of the good things about it is that it has started to sound so familiar she wouldn’t flinch that much anymore. This kind of occurrence also helped her a lot to remember where she is positioned in this wicked situation only the hearts could design; rumors helped her strengthen her resolve…albeit painfully.

    And besides, and perhaps the most important of all is that, she is not somebody’s friend for nothing. She definitely knew her place with Toot. And she more definitely knew her new place with DD. And she most definitely knew that her new place with DD must not change her standing with Toot, whatever may happen.

    It would be somehow offensive to her intellect if they even assumed she’d forget she’s one of Toot’s friends and throw that all away just because of some unrequited teenage fantasy.

    “MM! THERE YOU ARE!”

    The voice was loud enough to make her turn around and be suddenly shoved into arms that she only knew too well. Still surprised by what happened, she tried entangling herself away from the now strangling arms, flushing furiously.

    “T-Tricia…m-my b-back…”

    And the arms instantly let loose. “Oh…sorry! Guess I got carried away. Did I hurt y—?”

    But MM simply waved at her with her good arm dismissively. “Don’t worry, I still live.”

    “Now tell me what the nurse told you before your best friend would get crazier with worry here! So, is it bad? Will your arm be all right?”

    “Oh, Tricia. I’m fine, really—”

    It’s quite a surprise, even for her, how Tricia turned from her “rival” to best friend.

    Right after she left the PBB house, Fretzie was very immersed with her other friends and her other love interests that they barely got time to bond again. Then in one time, during rehearsal, Tricia sat beside her and talked to her. Really talked to her. And ever since then, they continued their ritual of communicating until Tricia blurted something out of the blue:

    “You are the best ate I never had.”

    It was the greatest thing Tricia had told her, and in that instant, they became very close friends.

    She really was a sweet person, maybe too young for such, and Devon has never felt so guilty at how she had behaved towards the girl inside the house before. She was only very happy that she was able to make it up to her now and still be close.

    Even despite how rich Tricia is.

    For some reason only Tricia knows, she transferred schools from Davao to Manila. MM was luckier how she got to change schools and still retain the scholarship she had. They belong to the same school now, and even if MM is years older than her, they make it a point to have similar schedules so they still have time to meet and bond.

    “Tricia has all the right to be concerned!!” came a booming voice which both knew too well.

    They silently signaled each other as they both turned to meet Jenny who had just appeared and was still breathing rather raggedly.

    And before any of them could say another word, they heard someone—quite similar to their teacher—shouting at the farthest corner of the building: “Jenny Kim! You still haven’t cleaned the locker rooms yet!”

    Tricia and MM looked at their friend, who was obviously escaping again.

    “Jenny?”

    “Ssshhh! Quick! Move! Run! Run!”

    And before anyone could say any word of protest, Jenny had moved so easily on MM’s side and unceremoniously clamped her arm—unfortunately for MM, the one which was exactly injured—and hastily scampered off to another side of the school, ruthlessly running away. It was only minutes later when the three of them were already hanging out in a food store close to their school, still wearing their gym uniforms and still breathing hard.

    “That was close!!” Jenny had managed at last with her bated breath.

    “Y-you…do not need to drag us into your mess, too, you know,” MM reprimanded, still breathing hard. She felt that her heart was about to explode from all that running.

    “Well, since we are already here,” Jenny continued on, now relaxed as she lounged on her chair as if she hadn’t heard anything at all, “we better make ourselves comfortable for I do not plan to go back to those locker rooms!!”

    Then Jenny had that suddenly excited look in her eyes whenever a spontaneous thought entered her mind. “Hey, why don’t we call up our PBB friends now so we could all meet? We haven’t seen them for decades!!”

    For a moment, nobody talked. Tricia and MM looked at each other until both had silently decided that Tricia should point it out for the two of them. Apparently, their other friend was still oblivious, as always. “You did realize, did you, Jenny, that it’s still before school dismissal hours?”

    And of course they were right. Jenny was still oblivious about it as she easily reached up a menu book to fan herself. “So what? We are here.”

    “What I mean is, the others are still in their classes, Jenny. We just happen to be here because you hauled us out to join your little escapade. Or have you forgotten about that?” Tricia added.

    The fanning stopped abruptly. “Oh.”

    “Yes. Oh.”

    The fanning resumed. Faster this time. “Doesn’t matter now. I’m still not going back to those locker rooms!!”

    That was when they knew Jenny got infected by the Ryan Bang disease. Silence again.

    “I really won’t!!”

    Silence once more.

    “W-well, if you two don’t mind, I have to go back—”

    “Of course!!” And, as if remembering, Jenny had easily discarded the menu book/fan and snatched MM’s injured arm as if inspecting it. “This.” She looked at MM questioningly.

    “Oh, that?” MM started, wincing.

    “Yes, this. So…what did the nurse say about this?”

    MM couldn’t help but wave at her other friend dismissively for the second time. They just get too worried when it comes to her sometimes (but she couldn’t help but resent it at times because it’s like they’re treating her as if she’s weak).

    “Jenny, it’s just a sprain.”

    “Oh? Then why isn’t this placed in a swing?”

    “It’s a sling, Jenny,” Tricia injected gently.

    “Sling. Whatever. Well?” Jenny’s face suddenly zoomed in on MM’s, effectively closing her vision.

    “I was just going to have it placed in a sling…but…”

    “But?”

    “The two of you came and dragged me in here before I could proceed to the station the nurse had told me to go for the supplies,” MM supplied.

    “I didn’t drag you in here,” Tricia defended in a half-pout, her eyes half-glaring at Jenny. “She did.”

    “Now, now, enough for that. What has passed has passed. What we need to focus on now is our friend here.” Even with her steady voice, they both knew that Jenny was hiding her slight humiliation.

    “M-me?” MM sputtered incredulously while looking suspiciously at Jenny. “Why me?”

    “Why, do you really think we wouldn’t be worried nuts after knowing that you have this?” Unfortunately again, Jenny was wriggling MM’s injured arm much to the injured lady’s painful discomfort.

    “But, Jenny, that’s only a—”
    “Jenny, you’re hurting MM’s—”

    “It’s not only a sprain!! You had this because I hit the volley ball too hard!!”

    “It was my foolishness that I wasn’t able to toss it well, Jenny. Really, I’ll live—this is nothing.”

    “Jenny, you’re still holding MM’s arm rather tightly.”

    “Hmm…”

    Tricia tried again. “And MM is in pain.”

    “I told her so!! But she wouldn’t listen—!!”

    “So I believe that it’s much better if you release her arm right now.”

    Jenny looked at her hand, then at her friend’s face. MM weakly smiled. She instantly released it.

    “Oh.”

    “Yes, Jenny. Oh.”

    Silence, until, Jenny had broken it again. From her expression, she was already discarding what happened and was now shifting to another topic to dwell on. “Then…what will we do with this situation now that our MM’s arm is injured?”

    “Allow me to return to school so I’d have it placed in a sling?” MM offered, until Jenny glared at her.

    “You didn’t…no, you just didn’t…DON’T TELL ME NOBODY REALIZES IT??”

    Since most of the people in the café are already used to Jenny’s outbursts like this, some of them merely glanced at her curiously, wondering what had gotten her to do it this time.

    “OH NO!! This is our demise!! Now that MM’s arm is injured we are all surely doomed!!”

    “Jenny, you’re just exaggerating.”

    “No, MM, I’m not!! It’s the fact that the sprain is in your right arm which makes it all worse!!”

    “It’s nothing—”

    “I bet you haven’t really realized the implications yet!!”

    MM just looked at her, obviously confused. And in an instant, MM’s hairs stood on end as Jenny had one of her legs already stomping the floor. One of her hands was on her hips while the other was just pointing and hovering under MM’s nose.

    “I knew it!! MM, haven’t you just realized that if your right arm is injured…you couldn’t…you just couldn’t—HOW COULD YOU EVEN WRITE? You write with your right arm, don’t you?”

    For a moment, nobody talked. Nobody had really seen the situation that way.

    “How will we deal with that especially now that it’s near our taping week and the much horrifying final exams? How could MM catch up with her honors if she couldn’t even write?”

    Still, the other two were just silent with their own thoughts to accompany them. It didn’t matter to Jenny, though.

    “And more importantly, HOW COULD SHE HELP ME WITH MY ASSIGNMENTS IF SHE COULDN’T WR—?” Tricia had hit her with the menu book warningly before the lady could ramble more.

    “You’re making MM upset,” she whispered. They both looked at MM. Who was only smiling. Calmly smiling. Something which does not go very well with an over-concerned, over-worried-for-her-assignment Jenny at all.

    “MM, WE OBVIOUSLY HAD A SITUATION HERE AND YOU’RE JUST SMILING???”

    But MM remained unperturbed. “You really don’t need to worry, Jenny. But now that you mention it…I’m sure I’ll get along just fine.”

    “HOW WILL Y—??”

    “Don’t worry. I’ll live,” MM pressed more firmly, her eyes closed. She was nodding to herself. Then she opened her eyes and smiled at them again.

    “But how?”

    “There’s only one way to find out, right?” MM finally retorted, slowly smiling. And that was when she stood up.

    “Hey, where are y—?”

    “I’m going back to school.”

    For a moment, they were thinking that it was a sly look which MM had on her eyes.

    “But, MM, you can’t!!”

    But MM only winked at them. “Relax. I won’t tell your teacher—or any soul at all—where you are hiding, Jenny. Besides, I need to talk to the dean about my writing situation.”

    “B-but—”

    “Also, my arm badly needed a sling.” She gestured for her arm. “And you two badly needed someone who’d bring the bags and uniforms back for you.”

    It was obvious in their dawning looks that they have forgotten about their things. MM smiled at that.

    “Well…are you sure you don’t want to…?”

    “Yes, I’m sure. I’ll catch up on you later.” She then added with a smile. “With your bags and clothes.”

    “Oh, thank you very much, MM!! You are always very kind!!”

    “And we will be waiting here? You don’t want me to go with y—?”

    “Assessing the situation, Tricia, who do you think badly needed the company?”

    “HEY!!! What’s that supposed to mean?” Jenny chirped, her fist hanging in the air good-naturedly.

    “Oh, nothing, Jenny. Absolutely nothing,” MM said with the sweetest and shyest voice she could muster.

    They were sure it was a sly look in her eyes this time. It was still slightly sly, but sly, nonetheless. If you get what I—er, they—mean.

    “Oh, nothing really, huh?” Jenny decided to play along, happy that at least MM now had the enthusiasm to be this mischievous. Especially after noticing that MM had become a little off lately.

    “Okay, then, we’ll wait for you here. And we’ll make sure that DD and the rest of the HMs will be here as well before you arrive,” Jenny added with a wink.

    Tricia nodded, phone already in her hands. If there is one thing they knew about Tricia after being together for such a long time, it is the fact that she’d always bring her cell phone with her all the time.

    But they didn’t see the sudden change of MM’s expression right after Jenny mumbled his name.

    Neither did the two know the implications—nor the results—of those words as MM silently went out the cafeteria.

    Paalala lang po lalo na sa mga lurkers.... ITO'Y BUNGA NG AKING MGA IMAHINASYON AT KATHANG ISIP LAMANG! Walang DAPAT masaktan at maapektuhan sa kwentong ito lalo pag kayo'y di namin katribo!

    Jaders/Jaevoners/Gemsters... Bonus ko sa inyo... full 10 chapters of my first ever fanpic! Have fun reading it.... :-)

    Chapter 1:

    8 years after the big night…

    Excerpts from the video message by Ryan to all the PBB 2010 Teenclash housemates:

    Ryan: Hey Housemates! Chuvachuchu! Hey, I have something to ter you! I’m lily excitered! Lily! Ahhh, me and Jinny… lily… ahhh Evelybody should come! I want evelybody to come home and come hele. We wir have a palty! Lily! Oh! I armost forgot… lily! Me and Jinny, my gawd… we getting marrid! Come evelybody ok! (Then came Jenny in the video message and both made the chuvachuchu sign.)

    The video message continues with Ryan and Jenny telling everyone on the details of the wedding and who are part of the entourage.

    James can’t help but smile when he saw the video message and yes when both Jenny and Ryan made the Chuvachuchu sign, he can’t stop himself from doing it too. He wondered if the rest of the housemate did the same thing. Ahhhh it brings back memories.

    His experienced in the PBB house never ceased to make him smile especially on the latter part of their stay. He misses all of his housemates especially the big 6 and most especially someone who’s closest to his heart. His Devon. But is she still his Devon? Is he still the JA of Jade or it’s now Jack?

    James reviewed the most guarded folder of his laptop and it is labeled GV (Good Vibes, and he takes credit to the JADE/JAEVON fans for this word, who are very active in updating the PEX thread). Although it made him smile sometimes when he reads the entries on JADE Noon at JADE Ngayon but at times also it made him furious especially if he sees photos of JADE Ngayon.

    He is JADE Noon and Jack is JADE Ngayon. The fans are constantly comparing them. If given a choice, he would have wanted to be Devon’s screen partner but it was management’s decision to pair him with Ann Li since their followers are quite aggressive especially in supporting their loveteam. And for their loveteam to flourish, management decided to keep him and Devon far from each other and developed the JADE (Jack-Devon) tandem.

    He wanted to make a protest before but his manager talked him through it and advised him to go with the flow and let management do what they want so that he can get the exposure he needed.

    Not that he doesn’t like working with Ann, in fairness to her, she’s a good screen partner. Her acting is improving and thanks to the many workshops given by ABS. His tagalong skills are getting better each day as well. He’s growing with her in terms of career but then again he missed working and being with someone who never fails to make him smile by just the thought of her.

    James started browsing thru the youtubes MV and scenes of him and Devon that he saved in his well guarded folder. He does this often if he misses her. They haven’t been communicating for quite sometime due to Management’s order and both decided to concentrate on their careers.

    Actually it was Devon who decided that because she needs it for her family and her manager advised her to stay away from James because the fans of JAMLI are bashing and attacking Devon below the belt.

    He felt sad and sorry for how the JAMLI fans are treating Devon. If only they knew what a nice girl she is. At one point, he had a heated argument with some of the JAMLI fans who are constant bashers of Devon and he told them that if they won’t stop what their doing, he’s no longer making an appearance in all JAMLI activities. James sigh… some sacrifices has to be made. A big sacrifice that until now he’s the one who’s suffering!

    His reminiscing was cut when he heard his phone beep. 5 text messages.

    Bret: Hey Dude, where are you? Coming home soon? I’ve seen the video message of Ryan! This is crazy! Come home! Hahaha…. Text back asap!

    Ann: James, where are you? I’ve been texting you but you’re not answering. I’m worried.

    Sis: Bro, don’t forget to take out the trash before you leave. And don’t forget to eat! Luv yah!

    Ryan: (voice mail) Jems, you have to come home. Want me fetch you? Lily! I lily lily need you here? Oke?

    Manager: James, you need to end your vacation fast. Management has something new coming up. It will be in connection with Ryan and Jenny’s wedding. I have booked you a flight 2 days from now. You have to be back in the Philippines in time for the story conference for the new show. Some of your ex-housemates will be part of the show. Call me.

    James made a sly smile. Deep inside him, he’s really excited. Will Devon be part of the show? If it’s gonna be a reality show then it’s his time to claim back what was his from the start. James started answering the text messages he received.

    Chapter 2:

    Story conference with the producers and writers of PBB.

    Some of the housemates were there already. Ivan was first to come then came Tricia with Fretzie and Bret. Patrick, Yen, Joe, April and the other housemates were there. Not all were included since some of them transferred to the rival network already and have signed exclusive contract. Then came James and Ann. The room was filled with laughter and kumustahan. James was busy looking around and looking for someone he wanted or desperately wanted to see.

    Bret: Hey Dude, looking for someone in particular?
    James: What? Yeah, where’s the soon-to-be wed?
    Bret: And?
    James: And what? (gets a little annoyed)
    Bret: Whoa! Cool lang! Come on, admit it. You’re looking for her.
    James: So?
    Bret: Dude, don’t worry, she’s coming. She’s just late. She texted me that she’s on her way here. Got stucked in traffic. She came from Batangas pa.
    James: Ayt. Is she with….

    Before he could even finished his sentence, the soon-to-be wed came. Ryan brought the house down with his usually funny antics. Everyone in the room are all chanting the chuvachuchu...

    Again please! Sama ako! (A shout coming from the door)

    Fretzie, Bret, Tricia and Ivan went rushing to the door to welcome Devon and the rest followed. It was like a slow motion for James to see Devon walking and hugging his ex-housemates. She’s still her old self. Pretty, bubbly and lovable. He wanted to go there and hug her.

    He started approaching towards her but suddenly stopped and gazed at Devon left hand… she’s holding somebody’s hand and he looked up… Damn! It’s Jack! And it breaks his heart to see them both very happy.

    James said to himself… Dude, bring-out the best actor mode! Bring it on! Acting makes it work! He composed himself and joined the group for another round of chuvachuchu and the group hug.

    And suddenly everything frozed! Both their eyes meet….

    Chapter 3:

    Devon frozed too! Oh my gawd! Kagwapo gihapon niya oi! Devon! Devon! Devon! Compose yourself. Hold on tight kay Jack!

    Jack: Ouch! MM!!! Ang lakas mo talaga!

    James can’t help it but his ears went red and his eyebrows raised to the nth level. MM? Why is Jack calling her MM? MM is for DD and who is Jack? JJ? WTF!!!!!!

    Devon: Ay sori naman. Naeexcite lang ako to see everyone. This does not happen all the time. (Sabay pa sweet kay Jack, but still gets a glimpse of James)

    Sa loob-loob ni Devon, oh my God! What have I done. That was so close ah! Whew! Buti na lang medyo manhid tong isa. Whew. Devon, Devon… go back to earth! Now na!

    She noticed that James ears turned red and just as she was about to say hi to him…. came Ann Li from James back. She just finished the phone call she was taking when Devon and Jack arrived.

    Ann Li: Devon!!!! Jack!!! (She excitedly hugged both of them. One big hug!)

    Jack: Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Ann Li!!! You get too excited girl! (Namula din si Jack kasi his ear was pressed at Devon’s head)

    Ann Li: Sorry! Sorry! Hehehe…. Hey James, what’s wrong? Why are you ears red? Are you ok? (She reached out to touch James ears but James brushed off her hand)

    James: It’s nothing. Maybe it’s something that I ate.

    Ann Li looked so worried and tried reaching out to check on James’ ears but James still did the same thing. He doesn’t want to be touched. Ann Li became worried and tried checking on James again. Devon on the other hand knew why it happened. It happens if James gets angry. She let out a cute smile to James.

    James: I said I’m ok! Enough already! Hey Devon and Jack, nice to see you two here. How are you guys doin?

    Jack: We’re good Dude. (Jack and Ann Li’s phones rang) Excuse us.

    That leaves Devon and James alone. Without a word, both just flashed their usual smile and are back to each others arms in a very tight hug!

    James: Somebody’s calling you MM ah (the sound of his voice was sad)

    Devon let go of James’ hug but James didn’t let go of her completely. They were talking face to face just like old times.

    Devon: Maybe someone’s calling you DD as well.

    They both laughed at their statements and give one big tight hug again and this time, Devon finally raised her legs like she used to do at the PBB House and James in return swirl her around. And then came Bret…

    Bret: Ehem, I think I’ve seen this before. What was that again? The F word… Forever!

    Devon let go of James and give a big slap on Bret’s arm! And gave him a bear hug!

    Bret: Aray kasakit gyud! You’re still you! But I’m glad I’ve seen it again! Hahahaha!

    Fretzie: BFF!!!!! I missed you so much!!! (And the BFFs hugged each other tightly)

    Ivan came rushing and without a word hugged the girls. Bret and James were looking at each other and nodded and joined the big hug!

    Ryan: Hey! Whatchadoin huh? Hugging each other with out me! I am hart! Why not include me! I am also your friend right?

    But Ryan was not angry but was laughing so hard and he came rushing to group and hug them all. The 2 girls are sandwiched by the 4 boys and they were drawing attention to the rest of the housemates who rushed to them and joined the hug!

    Jenny: Hey, why me hugging outside! I want to be inside like Devon and Fritzie! Excuse me! Excuse me! Lyan, you big mammal, get out of my way! I want to be inside also!

    Ryan: No! You stay outside… Come on, now you… you hug me from my butt! Hahahaha!

    Everyone was laughing and cameras were flashing non-stop. And since Jenny was positioned with the 2 girls in the center, Devon was by coincidence position at the front of James and James took the opportunity to hug her from the back and he whispered something to her ear…

    James: I miss you Baby….. (that’s how James secretly calls Devon if they’re alone)

    Devon went still and smiled. And to confirm that the feeling is mutual, Devon leaned to her side to give James access to her long neck that James loves to smell (their secret lambingan and intimate gestures).

    The sweet gestures didn’t escape Bret’s radar. He whispered, that’s 3 points and counting! Hahaha!

    And that’s when Ann Li and Jack went back to the meeting room after the phone call and hugged the group as well.

    Ryan: Oke, oke! Enough already. Jinny, you’re hugging my butt too tightly! Stop! Oh! Stop! You’re killing me! (And Jenny slaps and pinch Ryan all over!)

    Ryan: Oke! Oke! Guys, let’s do a big chupachuchu! Leady! Lily! Leady! Go! Chupachuchu! Chupachuchu!!!!! (And everyone is chanting the signature Chuvachuchu!)

    ABS Management: Ok Housemates, settle down now. Let’s start our meeting.

    And James made one quick back hug to Devon before dispersing in the area where they are standing. Devon smiled and proceeded to sit next to Fretzie and Jack. While James sits next to Bret and Ann Li to his right.

    Chapter 4:

    It was decided that a PBB Special will be done to highlight the wedding of Ryan and Jenny. All the present housemates will be doing the planning and the team to handle the logistics. Everyone will be staying at the PBB house and thru out the course of the planning, the cameras will again be rolling. The housemates will still be following the house rules of Kuya but with some adjustments. The tasks that they will be completing are the actual deliverables of the wedding. The wedding will take place in Boracay. All the wedding details were discussed and everyone was given their respective assignments. Halfway thru the discussion, someone opened the door and flashed a big big smile…

    It’s Cahsen!!!!

    Joe: You made it pal!

    Cahsen: Traffic! And I had another meeting prior. (Cahsen is working in an IT company and will have to take a leave of absence to join the special coverage. So as some of the former housemates).

    Yong: Iba na talaga ang big time! (And everyone end up laughing!)

    And the story conference continues. All throughout the discussion, two individual who are 2 seats apart are not 100% concentrating on the meeting. Secret glances were exchanged. Some secret hand signs were made. Just like how they use to do it when they were secretly keeping their relationship from the public eye.

    James covers his mouth with his left hand, which means I miss you.

    Devon touch the back of her neck means I miss you too.

    James raised his leg up to stretch means I wanna hug you

    Devon touched her nose signifies I wanna hug you too

    There were other hand gestures and as James was about to put his hand under his chin which means I love you but was stopped by Ann before he could do it. And got James’ hand and hold it.

    Devon that same time was feeling uneasy because she knows that she’s threading a difficult situation. She forgot completely and got carried away. She made a promised to herself already to let go. She thought she’s over it but she guessed not. Coming back to her senses, she composed herself and stopped taking simple glimpses to James.

    Jack: Are you alright? (Touching Devon’s trembling hands) Why are your hands trembling?

    Devon: I’m alright. It’s cold kasi. Lamig lamig. (Devon was making excuses and she even pretended that it’s really cold).

    Jack wasted no time and put his left arm on Devon’s shoulder drawn her near him to give body heat so that she will feel alright.

    James’ ears become red again and he can’t take it anymore and abruptly stood up and decided to go to the comfort room. Ann who was leaning at James’ shoulder was caught off guard. After James apologizes, he hurriedly went to the comfort room to calm himself.

    Devon frozed again but refused to follow James. It’s not right. I should know my place. She tried to concentrate on the story conference but half her mind is still occupied with what could have happened to James now especially when she saw how red his ears were.

    Bret knew something’s wrong with his best bud. He excused himself to Fretzie to follow James.

    Bret: Bun, adtuon lang nako James ha.

    Fretzie: Ha? Naunsa diay?

    Bret: I’ll explain later but naay biktima gyud sa gugmang giatay (Interpretation: May nabiktima sa hinayupak na pag-ibig).

    Fretzie nodded and pa simple na tiningnan si Devon. Only the 3 of them knew the real score. Bret, Fretz and ofcourse Ivan. Ivan was doing the same thing as well. Devon knew that her two friends are aware of what’s happening made a hand gesture saying, I’m alright guys.

    Chapter 5:

    Bret caught James in the comfort room. James was looking down at the sink and was breathing heavily and didn’t even notice that Bret was coming.

    Bret: Dude, are you alright?

    James looked up and his eyes were red. Bret knew that his friend was trying to control his tears from falling and his friend surely failed 100%.

    Bret: Dude…

    James: Why can’t we be ourselves? I can’t take this anymore.

    Bret: Hey calm down. Just go with the flow. Have you talked to your manager already? I thought you’re gonna discuss with him on what you want?

    James: Damn! I tried! But he said it’s not yet the right time. Especially now! My gawd! I felt so suffocated already. It’s not fair to Ann. I simply cannot reciprocate what she’s giving me.

    Bret: Dude calm down. Please be logical. It’s not just you who will be affected by all these but so as Devon.

    James: Sh**, I thought that 2 months vacation will stop this all but damn it didn’t.

    Bret: Sige na, calm yourself na. We need to go back there and finish this all. Who knows, remember we are all going back to the house. Maybe this is your chance.

    James can only sigh. He calmed himself and the best buds went back to the meeting room.

    Before going back to the room, James stopped Bret.

    James: Thank a lot Dude. (Sabay tapik sa balikat ni Bret)

    Bret: Anytime bro.

    Both went back to their seats. Devon could sense that something went wrong but had to stopd herself from asking for it will just worsen the situation. She composed herself and sat back straight but still managed to get simple glimpses to James.

    Ann again was worried of James.

    Ann: James, are you ok? I saw your ears turned red again. You want me to take you to the doctor?

    James: I’m ok. Don’t worry about me.

    Ann: But your ears are red and your eyes too. Maybe you’re having allergies. Let’s go to the hospital now. Please. (Ann is really trying so hard to convince James to see a doctor.)

    James: I said I’m fine. Stop it! (Tinabig ang kamay ni Ann at tumaas na ang boses ni James. Nabigla si Ann at natigilan.)

    This is the first time that James raised his voice. She’s accustomed to his mood swings but this is way beyond the usual. She noticed that things are different after his vacation to Australia. She knew something was wrong… something went wrong.

    Chapter 6

    Ann went numb! She sat straight and faced front. She’s holding her tears from falling. She sniffed to control it from falling. Look up! Sniff!

    James noticed Ann and realized what he just did.

    James: Hey, I’m sorry. I’m just tired and haven’t got a good sleep. I’m so sorry.

    Ann can’t utter a word so she just nodded and pretended to concentrate on the meeting. James took Ann’s hand and gripped it tightly. It’s his way of telling Ann he was sorry. Ann leaned on James’ shoulder.

    And someone who’s seated a few seats away witnessed it all. It breaks her heart to see how Ann was brushed off yet it also breaks her heart to witness the reconciliation. But she has to compose herself and pretend again that she’s not part of James’ dilemma.

    Fretzie: Bun, ok ra si James?

    Bret: Di gyud!

    Fretzie: Hala oi. Is there anything we can help?

    Bret: Just let them be. They’ll find ways to fix this.

    Fretzie received a text message.

    Ivan: F, is James alright?

    Fretzie: Sabi Bun ko di daw.

    Ivan: Anything we can help?

    Fretzie: Pabayaan lang daw.

    Ivan: Ok. Hey, were you guys heading later?

    Fretzie turned to Bret. Bun, where are we going later? Ivan is asking.

    Bret: I’m sure we will have dinner with the gang later. Let’s wait what the others will say.

    Fretzie: I, discuss tayo with housemates later after the meeting.

    PBB Writer: Guys, saan kaya maganda mag pre-nuptial pictorial for Ryan and Jenny.

    Everyone was trying to make a suggestion and then out of the blue, Cahsen shouted… TAGAYTAY!

    All housemates and even the handlers were shouting in unison….NO WAY!

    Cahsen: Why? I have a house there that we can use. It’s in Tagaytay Highlands. Com’mon you guys…

    Joe: Ha! Di bale na Bro. Di bale na!

    Cahsen is still clueless on the reason why Tagaytay is not an option.

    Cahsen: But I don’t get it!

    Eslove: Pare, no Tagaytay! Bad tsismis! Die! Patay! Bad! Beri bad!

    Everyone end up laughing and remembered the incident when a bad news got everyone worried since several of the big 6 were reported to have met an accident on their way to Tagaytay allegedly and some of them died apparently. Napa sign of the cross ang mga housemates especially those who were involved so to speak! It was a nice way to end the 1st meeting for

    [highlight]
    I've got an angel
    She doesn?t wear any wings
    She wears a heart that could melt my own
    She wears a smile that could make me want to sing

    She gives me presents
    With her presence alone
    She gives me everything i could wish for
    She gives me kisses on the lips just for coming home

    She can make angels
    I?ve seen it with my own eyes
    You got to be careful when you you've got good love
    'cause them angels will just keep on multiplying

    But you're so busy changing the world
    Just one smile and you could change all of mine
    We share the same soul
    Oh oh oh ohh

    We share the same soul
    Oh oh oh ohh
    We share the same soul
    Oh oh oh ohh
    Oh oh oh ohh
    Mmm mmm mmm mmm:note:[/highlight]
