"Annulment papers..." I whispered. The papers fell on the floor, my hands are shaking as I darted my confused eyes at him.
"I already signed it. Yours is the only thing that is needed to pass that. You can also review the terms if you want." His eyes were blank, he was just there, standing without showing any expression on his face.
A lump in my throat built up as I sit and pick the papers one by one. A tear fell from my eye. This thing hurts. I just thought that we could still make all of this work but he was so fast. I am still hoping for a chance to make us whole again but he already broke my heart for the nth time.
I stood up and throw the envelope on the sofa.
"W-why are you doing this? Do you not love me anymore?" I asked in a tremulous voice. My lips quivered. I walk towards him, closing the gap between us. "Is this so easy for you that you will just throw me out of your life? Am I some garbage that can be disposed when you no longer want to use, U
After all these years, I realized that my dream was too much. It was almost unreachable. Only a few people would be able to achieve and get a hold of it and they are so lucky.When I was a child, I thought, happiness is one of the easiest things you could get every day of your life. Whenever your Mom gets out and will go home with a barbie, whenever your father will carry in his arms while you are pretending to be Darna or superman, whenever one of your classmates will greet you a happy birthday. Those were the simplest things which can make your mood so good and brings you happiness.But as I grow up, I noticed that I am losing my grip. I couldn't get a hold of it longer than I used to. The contentment that I got was already shortlived and I couldn't accept how it slowly vanished on my hand. Happiness is not some kind of a normal dream which you can get after you graduated nor get married.It's not something you can hold onto for the rest of your life. I alread
Uno's hands move fast as he removes all my clothes off the luggage and put it on top of the bed. He was crumpling it and will only stop when he sees that the folded clothes were in a mess.My lips parted. I entered the room and marched towards the bed."What are you doing?" I snatched the clothes from his hand and glared at him. My heart was beating fast, confused as to why he is acting like this."Why are you ruining my clothes? I already folded it and was about to leave but you will–""Why did you sign the papers?" He cut my words off.I frowned. "Are you nuts? You told me to sign it, so I signed it."He glanced at my clothes, then his hands reached for another luggage and opened it, picking my stuff one by one."What the hell are you doing, Uno? I told you I already fixed it!" I whirled around and kneeled in front of him, trying to remove the luggage from his hold."Why are you doing this–stop!" I yelled and went
"Ms. You have a meeting later with the Fly PH at 1 pm. Another meeting with the board at 3 pm and the rest is for signing some documents." Mayi uttered as she scanned on her papers and then glanced at me with an awkward smile.The same, stern face that I always have every day of work has been plastered again the moment I started to work here as a head. I am working here again for about two weeks and everything felt so normal. Investors that we got after the merging with Uno's company has been decreased, although some of them stayed, some are not me and Pacifica that much without Uno's presence so they pulled it all out.It saddened me a bit, it feels like I am not as efficient as what I am trying to be and they couldn't see my potential so they decided not to stay, but I couldn't blame them because business is a gamble. You win or you lose. In this case, I am working so hard together with my employees not to go back to the top but to lift the company from the mud.
He must be freaking kidding me. I actually thought girls are the only creatures who are hard to predict not until Uno came into my life. He was one heck of a difficult person!He was furious at me and he doesn't want me anymore. How many times should I remind myself that we are now in the process of our annulment and just waiting for the trials? We are not the married couple before, and asking me to eat with him again after two weeks of not seeing each other is just weird. It doesn't seem or sound so right."Girl this is legit, I think Uno still loves you and he wants to win you back! This is your time!" Vanessa let go of her milk tea and clapped her hands."I mean you've been waiting for this, right? And Uno is making the first moves! Grab it already!"I lazily lifted my eyes at her, then back to my laptop. I am in my Mom's house, occupying one of the rooms ever since I left Uno's penthouse. It's already 8 pm, those times where I should be hugging my pil
His words made my mind stop working. This might sound so cliché but the whole place became so silent, the backgrounds blurred and the only thing that I could see is Uno's serious face, his hand at the table, and all that I could hear is the repeated words saying that I should go home with him."Are you...out of your mind?" I asked after a couple of seconds in silence. His eyes were still glued on me, his lips were pursed in a grim line, and his arm extended at the table, giving me the duplicate keys of his penthouse that I returned when I left."You are kidding me, Uno." I nervously laughed and glanced at the keys."I mean I don't understand! We already signed the papers and the only thing we are waiting for are the trials! Why are you suddenly asking me to go back to your house when we already quit this marriage?" I added.He sighed and left the keys on the table, putting his hand back at his knees."I...tore the contract." He cocked his he
"Mom! Mom!"I opened my eyes when I heard a voice coming from a girl. I lifted myself and glanced at the whole place. I am inside the living room of our mansion, sitting on top of our maroon sofa."Mom!" I heard a small spit of laughter on the door towards our garden. I furrowed my brows as I felt the urge to step outside and search for the owner of the voice. My steps are odd. I want to walk faster, but my feet seemed heavy that I wasn't able to do what I want and instead have these dramatic steps towards the place.The harsh sun rays hit my face the moment I stepped out of our living room. The trees are high, but the gaps in between the leaves and some small branches made it possible for the rays to hit my skin. I covered my face and glanced from side-to-side, searching for the girl who woke me up from my slumber."Mom! Yoohoo! I'm here!"My heart raced. The sudden feeling of excitement and nervousness are whirling inside my system, and the next
Uno Saldivar's PoVEver since I laid my eyes on her, I knew she would be a big thing in my life. She always thought that I am weird because I stayed for too long even when she keeps on pushing me away.It was one hectic morning, I just got home from our out of the country vacation and I forgot that I need to transfer to a new school. I still have this jetlag, my head is aching that I couldn't focus on the things I need to do before this day ends, and it starts with enrolling. It was just a week before the academic year starts, and I am already hurrying because I am not sure if the University that I want is still accepting late enrollees. I don't want to use the power of my family, but if they wouldn't accept me, then I will have to ask a favor to my grandmother and let her talk to the head just so I could go to this school.My black, thick-rimmed glasses are falling. My big shirt felt so thick against my skin that sweat started to fall down my face. The line is
Farrah.That was her name.With her black hair, brownish-red lipsticks, artificial curls, and narrow nose, she got me. I know from that day that I like her. This was the first time that I felt this kind of attraction.I normally have crushes on celebrities and artists, some from my past school but with Farrah, it was different. I spent some months just watching her and occasionally approached her. May it be for a small pageant she won, a contest whom she said she doesn't like but is competitive enough to win and her birthday. I will sometimes greet her every time we will see each other, but I just found that a bit weird so I stopped myself from doing it and just smile when our eyes will meet.Until I no longer like how boys hold him. She was a boy magnet! Every boy from the hallway would always turn their heads the moment she walks in the middle like a ramp model! It was making me angry, so I tried to be close to her and asked her if I can court her.
