Notes From The Heart- Chapter 32: When God Made You

Chapter 32: When God Made You

Richard pulled her out of the spa early in the morning. The customers and even the employees were looking at them. Maya can’t help but to feel uncomfortable with the stares that they’re getting. It’s been a week since they were back to each others arms and Richard had been very sweet to her since then. He wouldn’t mind being sweet to her in public.

“Ricky! Saan ba tayo pupunta?” She asked her as they continued to run hand in hand

“Just wait.” He answered her with his lips still curved up in a smile since they left the spa.

“Ikaw ha, hindi pa nga tapos yung trabaho ko sa office aya ka ng aya pumunta kung saan-saan!” She said, although she is not complaining, she also doesn’t want to be unfair to her co-employees that are working all day yet they are receiving the same salary as hers.

“It’s all right, Maya. I’m the boss remember?” He said, still not looking at her. He is focused on running, avoiding those people that are blocking their way.

“Ricky naman. Ang unfair kaya non. Mamaya sabihin pa nila porke’t boyfriend kita pwede na akong lumabas kahit working hours.”

“Okay, sabihin mo sa’kin kung sino ang magsasabi nyan and I’ll fire him or her.”

“Ricky!!!” She half shouted

He chuckled. “Alright, I’m just kidding. Promise. After this, hindi na po mauulit.” He assured her

Maya doesn’t know where they are heading. Usually, Richard would take her out for a date even though it’s office hours just to make up with their lost time so today is not really new to her and she got tired of asking where they are going.

They hailed a cab and sat closely together on the backseat. Richard’s arm is on her shoulder while Maya is leaning close to him. She is beyond happy now. Her decision of giving him a second chance is right. She cannot imagine living her life without this man.

He kissed her forehead and breathed in her scent. He smiled contentedly. Today is the day. He will never ever let her leave him again. “Ti amo” he uttered.

She looked up at him and smiled. “I love you, too.”

The cab halted in Venice near the grand canal. Richard helped her out of the cab and pulled her near the canal afterwards. “Anong gagawin natin dito?” She asked him. Lovers are sailing on the canal and she got a hunch that they will do the same. Especially that Richard did bought one, as far as she can remember.

“Hm.. What do you think?”

“We’ll go sailing!” She said. Sure that they will.

“Uh..” He crossed his arms and spoke. “Actually, not only that.”

“Huh?” She said, confused.

“Basta, you’ll see. Let’s go.” He pulled her near their boat as a gondolier awaits them.

“Aba! Hindi ikaw ang magddrive ng boat?” She teased.

“Of course not! I will be beside you all throughout the ride. Kiss you, hug you everytime I wanted!” He said excitedly.

She pinches his nose and gave him a quick kiss before riding the boat. “Sobrang clingy mo na, sweetheart!” She said, amused by her boyfriend

“Well, ayaw mo ba?” He asked her as he sits beside her and wrapped his arms around her.

“May sinabi ba akong nagrereklamo ako?” They laughed.

When Maya and Richard’s gondola is far from the busy streets, the boat stopped. Maya didn’t notice this at first since she was busy sightseeing. Yes, this is not her first time to ride this, but it felt like it is because she’s with her love. After a few moments, she noticed that the gondolier has stopped working with his oar.

“Ricky, napagod ba yung driver natin?” She whispered near his ears.

Richard shrugged “I don’t know. Hayaan mo na just enjoy the view.” He said and intertwined his fingers with hers.

Maya saw couples around the canal enjoying the ride. She smiled. She’s happy that love can be seen everywhere. Maybe it’s because she, herself is in love. There is this one couple where in the girl is holding a fresh bouquet of flowers. Hay, ang sweet!, she thought. But after a few, the gondola of the couple were approaching their boat. She wondered why.

When the couple’s and Richard’s gondola were beside each other, the girl smiled at Maya and handed her the bouquet. “Huh?” Was all she can say.

“You’re loved.” The girl said to her.

“Wait, why are you giving me this?” She asked the girl but the latter just smiled and their boat started moving.

“Sweetheart, nakita mo yon?” She looked at him and asked.

Richard only nodded and said “Hayaan mo na, nagandahan siguro sa’yo.” He kissed her on her cheeks.

Although confused, she managed to say. “Thank you!” She shouted at the girl and waved.

She’s still busy staring at her flowers when she heard a musical instrument playing near her. And when she shifted her eyes, she saw another boat beside theirs. Another couple, the lady with a guitar and the guy with his violin. This is so romantic.

“Sweetheart, ang sweet naman ng bonding nila oh!” She said and pointed at them

Richard nodded and smiled at her. The music started playing afterwards. A beautiful melody that makes Maya’s heart melt.

“Awwwwh!” Maya giddily reacted and covered her face with her hands.

The next thing she knew, the man seated beside him started singing with the music.

Its always been a mystery to me,
How two hearts can come together,
And love can last forever.
But now that I have found you I believe,
That a miracle has come when God sends the perfect one.
So gone are all my questions about why,
And i’ve never been so sure of anything in my life

Maya was surprised to hear him singing. Richard reached for her hands and kissed it. Maya’s eyes were starting to well up. “Ricky, ano ba ‘to? Monthsary ba natin?” She asked. She remembered him being this sweet during their monthsary. She cannot think of anymore occasion for him to exert such effort. She knew that the flower and now, this couple with instruments is all his idea.

“No. We’ll celebrate more than that later.” He said and continued to sing.

Oh I wonder what God was thinking,when he created you.
I wonder if He knew everything I would need,
Because he made all my dreams come true.
When God made you, He must have been thinking about me.

She embraced him. How she love this man. No matter how hard they’ve been through, she still loves him very much.

Ooo ooo,I promise that wherever you may go, wherever life may lead you,
With all my heart I’ll be there too.
And from this moment on I want you to know,
I’ll let nothing come between us, and I will love the ones you love.
So gone are all my questions about why
And I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life..

He moved away from her hug and fished something inside his pocket. Something that he’s been taking good care of since last week. This is it. He is so sure about this.

The couple on the other boat continued to sing the song where Richard left it. Both are gazing lovingly at each other. Maya was confused on what’s happening. While Richard’s eyes mirrors love and hope for what he wanted to hear.

Oh I wonder what God was thinking when he created you,
I wonder if He knew everythin I would need,
Because He made all my dreams come true.
When God made you He must’ve been thinking about me

He looked straight into her eyes. Held her hand and gave her a heart melting smile.

He heaved a deep breath. “Maya…will you..”

She waited. Her heart already knew what he’s about to ask. She is slowly dying inside. “Ricky..”

He kissed her forehead and breathed heavily. “Baby, will you.. Marry.. Me?”

Maya couldn’t help her tears from falling. Is this true? Isn’t she dreaming? Is he sure about this?

“Si-sigurado ka ba?”She asked

“As the song says, I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life, Maya.” He answered.

He made the sun He made the moon,
To harmonize a perfect tune,
One can’t do without the other they just have to be together.
And that is how I know it’s true,
Your for me and i’m for you and my world
Just can’t be right without you in my life

Oh I wonder what God was thinking,when he created you.
I wonder if He knew everything I would need,
Because he made all my dreams come true.
When God made you, He must have been thinking about me.

Maya nodded as she sobs. “Yes. I will marry you.” She answered. She, too is so sure.

Richard is so happy, he engulfed her in a hug and planted a kiss on her head. He slipped in the ring on her finger and embraced her once more.

“I love you, Mrs. Maya Lim”

He must have heard every prayer I’ve been praying. He must’ve knew everything I would need

When God made you, He must’ve been thinking about me.

“I love you more, Ricky.”

The rain would’ve completed that perfect engagement scene, but instead, the exuberant dancing of the sun robs that scene in which reminded them that no matter how grim their journey had been, the sun would always reveal how love can turn things beautifully.

They sealed their forever with a long lingering kiss. Both knew that it won’t be that easy. Things will come their way, but as long as they are together, there will be no mountains so high that they couldn’t climb. They can overcome anything as long as they stay beside each other forever.
