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
I felt his hands touched my legs from up to down and then wrapped it around his waist before he stood up. His lips are still on mine, sucking my lips and giving it a bite to open it. I groaned.My hands wrapped around his nape, pulling him closer as I felt him took some steps towards our room. He moved his lips away a bit and touched my cheeks using the tip of his nose as his other hand left my back to open the door. He kicked it to open it widely and put me down the bed. He parted my legs and put his in between me, his left hand at the side of my waist and the other, at the side of my head, completely locking me until I wouldn't be able to move nor escape.His dark, menacing eyes were now staring darkly at me. It has a hint of desire, excitement, and amusement. My heart hammered fast against my chest, the anticipation for everything that will happen tonight is making my heart beat wildly that it was already painful, but bearable enough to continue."You are rea
The next days were spent in traveling inside Batanes. Have a food trip in different restaurants that serves usually seafoods and argue which cooks more delicious. We also went to different beaches, take pictures, went to souvenir shops, and bought matching chains and shirts. I also bought one for Dylan and Vanessa.The only thing that I will never forget is when we went to this old Mt. Carmel Chapel. It was a small church built on top of the hill, it was made out of stones, the same as some old houses here in Batanes. Different shades of green leafy plants are hanging on its wooden gates, making it more pleasing and attractive to the eyes of the tourists. Outside it was the crashing mighty waves from the Pacific Ocean and South China Sea, the same salty breeze covering the whole place. When you enter the church, the usual long wooden chairs from. Catholic churches will welcome you. Some old sculptures of Saints are placed inside it as a design, brown lights are giving the sta
"You really are going to work today? Sure?"My voice sounded like I am bargaining. About three hours ago, we arrived in Manila. It was already two in the afternoon and Uno is busy fixing his sleeves."Yes, I need to go to work right now. I will come home early and cook your dinner, or I will just buy. What do you want?" He glanced at me and sat beside me. My shoulders were shrunk, and my lips protruding."Can't we stay here and just work tomorrow? I mean we just get off from a plane ride and it's tiring?"Earlier, when I got out of the bathroom, I heard him talking to someone on the phone and when he saw me, he ended it and immediately went inside the bathroom and his clothes were already placed on the bed. And now, I am asking him to just sleep with me and not go to work.I sighed."And you tell me that we can still stay in Batanes, huh?" I stood up and held his arms to fix his sleeve.He glanced at me and licked his lips."Sorry, I just need to do it right now. I want to go home the
"This is the girl you married, Uno? A greedy heiress with a struggling company?"Uno's grandmother plastered a smirk on her lips as she fanned herself with a big, red fabric fan."I thought you and Hazel would end up together, it's just disappointing that you decided to marry for... I am not sure if it's a hopeless love or purely business?"I was left with no words, I can't even dart my eyes at Uno to ask for some protection because it will look like I am asking for his pity. I just don't know why I am so hurt right now, she just spits out some words and she was able to make my heart squeeze and made my thoughts shower inside my mind."Lola..." Uno stood behind me and touched my waist. "Let's not talk about this, please...""What? I am just telling you that Hazel is a better choice. You are still young, I don't even get why you married already." She arched her brow and walk towards the door of their dining room–or that was what I could rememb
"What?"This is totally insane. Uno and I only got married because of this contract, telling me that he wants to get his inheritance so bad but he wasn't able because he is still not married to anyone!My hands were shaking, and my heart is beating fast. His grandfather is still sitting in front of me, his arms were crossed as he leaned his back. He has this wide smile plastered on his wrinkled face like he finds this thing funny."Uno already got his inheritance when he's twenty-one? Then why did he bother to marry me for that damn reason?" I stood up, my hands turned sharp.Obviously, my husband fooled me. He tied me up with marriage when he can get nothing.I didn't bother to wait for his grandfather's answer and strode the way towards the hall of their mansion, and there, I saw him talking to an old lady in a black and white dress. Those dresses that the maids use as their uniforms for filthy rich families."Uno," I called. I tried so ha
The unexplainable expression in Uno's face was still etched on my mind the moment we found out that we are pregnant. He bought me three kinds of pregnancy test kits and paced back and forth, he didn't even go out of the bathroom even when I am taking a pee. He just waited for me, leaning against the sink while biting his lips or playing with his fingers.Two lines appeared on both three kits and after that, he screamed like a crazy man saying "I am going to be a father!" and jumped with a wide smile plastered on his face.He was happy, that was what I know. I only watched how pleasant his laughter, how excited he looked like, and how his eyes glistened at that time, and I just stared at him...trying to remember every detail that is etched on his face and careful not to miss anything.Because moments like that are priceless and can be seen in a limited time. From that night, he didn't let me do things. He just told me that he will buy books to search for our baby
Uno is not cheating on me. Uno is not cheating again. Not when we are already married and having our firstborn.Those were the words I chanted inside my mind as I tap my fingers at my forearms. My arms were crossed, same as my legs as I leaned my back at the sofa's backrest. It was already late, about ten pm and I should be sleeping by now but the things that I saw in Uno's shirt were etched on my mind.No matter how hard I try to convince myself that it's just nothing, I know there is something going on. I can't sleep with those things running inside my mind. The thought of Uno, hugging another girl to the point that her scent transferred to his shirt makes me want to cry. But I am still having a glint of hope that Uno will not repeat the things that my parents did.I don't want to make conclusions, I don't want to be like the old Farrah who closed her ears and mind to the things that she should know. The only thing that makes it different right now is that we
