"Uno what are you saying? You're just...drunk." I gulped. His head is still on my stomach, and his arms wrapped around my waist.
I know this is just the effect of alcohol, and it means nothing. But something in my heart felt so happy that he said something like that. To know that my meetups with Dylan made him upset made my heart flutter in joy and I don't know but...I kind of want to meet Dylan again and again just to hear him beg. I want to hear it several times that it would never leave my mind.
But this whole thing is fake. We are doing this for money. Nothing more and nothing less. I touched his arms and tried to remove it from my waist but he just groaned and hugged me tighter.
"Come on, let's sleep. The clock is about to hit midnight and we still have to work," I touched his hair and played with it.
"No...you will just meet that idiot again!" His muffled voice and his position right now made me chuckle. Why acting like a baby when he's drunk?<
I groaned when I felt the sun rays hitting my face. It was great, alright. They said the sun rays from 6 am to 8 am is healthy for the skin but right now, when I feel so tired and sleepy, I am not sure."What the fuck Uno, aren't you tired?!" I ranted as I hid my face under the pillow and whirl around to face the wall, resulting for my back to be hit by the annoying sun rays.I heard some steps walking closer to where I was and started to pull the thick blanket off my body. I groaned more."The heck, if you want to wake up then do it alone! I still want to sleep! I'm dead tired!"I slept late last night, and even though I slept soundly, I still need a lot of hours to gain my energy back. And this idiot has the guts to disturb me when he is the reason why I can't pull myself off this freaking bed?"Why are you tired, sis?" The other side of the bed sank as I heard a familiar stagy voice. I opened my eyes and immediately pulls myself and glanced at h
The moment I stepped inside Dylan's nightclub, I know everything would be hype. The flicking mixture of red, blue, green, and yellow lights usually makes my eyes get hurt but tonight, the dark, crowded room complimented it that it looks otherwise. It was enticing, like they want you to feel the excitement and make you want to drink your ass out, get all drunk, and dance with the great mixture of an expert Dj.The smell of vape smoke, cigars, and different kinds of alcohol invaded my nose as I step inside the room. It's still 7 pm but the crowd is already wild. Makes me remember my good old days, huh?Some of my former college classmates are here, some from the business world, and some are afams.If you wanna pick a rich man, attending Dylan's party is a privilege. This year is different. For the past years, we celebrated his birthday either on a trip to somewhere outside or inside our country, or just close the bar with the three of us getting drunk at his big c
The most important thing that I did today? I asked our family lawyer about the annulment papers and told him to get me one. Months from now, Uno will probably get everything that he wants and Pacifica will gain enough investors. He also said that he already wired the Million dollars in my bank and the only thing that I need to do is to sell my properties and expensive bags to finally pay my Dad's debts and brought him out of the dirty cage.He had been imprisoned for...I think about nine months? And I couldn't afford to let him spend more months there. I know he is a bad husband but he isn't a bad Dad. He didn't let me get hungry nor sleep in a cold, uncomfortable bed and I believe, he deserves the best life he could have even after all the stupidity he did.My original doesn't include Uno. Remembering last night's fight is a pain in the ass. I can't continue living with him if this is the case, and everyone knows I like how freedom can be so entertaining that it
He puts the tickets in my palm and covered it with his hand, trapping it in the middle of our palms as he stared at me with his nervous eyes."I just thought that we didn't do a honeymoon and your birthday is approaching, this would be my gift." He uttered.Right now, I am confused. My mouth was left open as I gape at him, bewildered with his actions. I licked my lips."What? Why? I don't need this, and honeymoons aren't required, we are both busy."This man's action is shocking. One minute he will act all annoyed and then later, he will act like someone so gentle and kind. And he still remembers my birthday, huh? I didn't even realize that my day is approaching."Just go with me, all things are covered. I am really sorry, I swear I will try to be more understanding. Just...this one. Have a vacation with me.""Why would I even go? You can ask someone to be with you–""Someone who isn't you? No thanks." He shook his head and removed his hand from mine, bringing the tickets with him as h
I have been thinking about Uno's words since last night. Those words only made my heart hammer hard and made me stay so late that I just woke up in a room with scattered clothes.I tell you, it's a mess. Three black big luggages are placed on our carpeted floor with crumpled shirts inside it. Shoes and sandals are beside it, about three pairs for me and for him. Two bags of mine are also placed on one of the luggage and some of my essentials.I furrowed my brows when Uno slams the door hard and enter with a slice of toasted bread in his mouth."What the?"And as if I didn't say how the room looks like, I roamed my eyes around it."What the fuck are you doing, Uno?!" I yelled and jump out of the bed to reach for the scattered clothes and put them on top of our bed."The whole room is a mess! Why did you encroach my closet?" My cheeks burned as I glared at him. He pulls the bread out of his mouth and started munching, then showed me a small, awkward smile."Ah...that is...uh." He bit his
"Ate! Ate! Mommy! Ate Farrah is here!" The little girl yelled as she pointed her index finger at me. She walked closer and stretched her arms upwards until it reached my waist, indirectly telling me to carry her through actions.I furrowed my brows."Ate! Can you please carry me? I want to hug you," she whined. Her lips protruding, and her pigtailed hair hanging at her shoulders down to her chest. Her face is a bit dirty, and so as her clothes.She's wearing a baby pink flowy dress and a pair of pink shoes, pink earrings, and pink ribbon ponytails. I sighed.The woman behind her walk towards her and tries to pull her away from me but she hugged my waist."No, I just saw my Ate. She doesn't visit me anymore, I don't want to go away!"Fierra, my five-year-old sister is still hugging my waist tightly. I held her shoulders and tries to gently pull her away from me but she only shook her head until I felt her shoulders shake.I felt a pang in my
"Good morning Ate! Did you sleep well?" Fierra's wide smile welcomed me the moment she stepped behind Uno. She is still sporting her pigtails, but now, she is wearing a navy blue flowy dress ending above her knees, brown flat strappy sandals, and red ribbons whirled around her black, naturally curled hair.My lips parted as I stood a step back and glance at Uno. He is holding Fierra's small hand, with the same wide grin plastered in his face."What are you doing here, Fierra? Where is your Mom?" I asked and shifted my gaze to her."Kuya Uno promised me that I will have bonding with you!" The cheerful voice and the claps of the little girl sounded like a sudden stressor. It made me want to just cut off my ears just so I wouldn't be able to hear it or to just vanish in front of them.I bit the insides of my cheeks and darted my gaze at Uno. He has this triumphant, proud smirk in his lips that made me want to just peel it off or punch him until I can no long
Uno reached for the doorknob of our room in this rest house. The sky is already dark, and the cold night breeze is making our white curtains dance in the air. He carefully opened the door and moved his position sidewards, his left arm placed in Fierra's shoulders, and his right arm behind her knees.I sighed and followed them inside the room. He gently puts Fierra in the middle of the bed and removed her shoes. He reached for a small bag on top of our bedside table and get some clothes for Fierra, while I busied myself on getting myself a pair of maroon pajamas before going inside the bathroom to take a cold shower.And then I remembered Fierra's eyes. Earlier, even when I can hear her tummy making noises, a sign that she is already hungry, she didn't complain. Uno is already telling her that we need to eat but she insists that she needs to complete all night rocks for her wish to come true. That is to make me like her and to forgive my mother.She tried and tried, even when her rocks
