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
I woke up when I heard a loud thud made by someone behind a door. I hastily pulled myself up to glance at the person behind the noise when I saw Fierra's built with a wide smile plastered in her face.Her hair is down at her shoulders, and a pink flower clip is pinned on her hair. She is wearing a pink spaghetti strap flowy dress and pink block heeled shoes."Good morning Ate Farrah!" She yelled, repeating what she said Yesterday when she went here, only with a lower energy and smaller smile.Someone walks towards the door and revealed Uno. He is holding a big tray in his hands with foods on top of it."Breakfast in bed!" Uno smiled widely after he put the tray on the bed. He is still wearing the same black sweatpants and white shirt from last night, he didn't take a bath and cooked first?Despite being surprised by these two, I still don't know what to react. This is a small thing, I know. But something inside me feels so happy. Not until I saw Fi
Uno's words will really make you think whether it is true or not. Days before our marriage, he acts like a brute and treats me arrogantly but now, he is pursuing me and convince me to make the marriage real and try if we can fall in love with each other again. His deep-set of eyes and his flowery words were stuck on my head as I sat on the yellowish sand, my feet touching the waters a bit when they go up.I hugged my knees and put my chin on top of it. I know I am starting to like Uno, but this marriage is making me anxious. Is he worth to love again? Not that I completely lost it, I know my love is probably hiding somewhere inside my heart and my mind only commands me not to show it. Maybe because I am still afraid to show affection towards others. The betrayal that I witnessed made a great impact for me not to show the love that I have towards the people I cherished the most.I still cannot admit to myself that I want to hold them for I know when that time comes, whe
I know what I did was wrong, alright. Pretending that your life is at stake and that you are drowning will never be a good joke so I understand why Uno is furious right now, but I just want him to come with me and he wouldn't do it just because I insisted to wear my bikini.I picked the blanket and wear my romper even when my body is still wet before strutting the way to our rented car. I sighed as I harshly opened it and jump on the passenger seat, throw the blanket at the back seat, and glance at Uno's scornful face."Hey, I'm sorry...I know I was wrong and–" my words were cut off when he started the engine and drove fast, making me hold at the side of the window.What the hell I didn't even put my seat exalts on! That's too harsh!"Uno! Slow down!" I uttered in an annoyed voice but he didn't listen and continued with his speed, but when we reached Basco, he slowed down.All the time that we spent inside that car feels eerie. Uno's hands we
