IT'S been three days since the birthday party of Beatriz pero hindi pa rin mapalagay ang loob ni Cielo. She's at the gazebo of their garden with her sketchpad and pencil by her side that sunny morning. Still in her jammies and doodling. Not in the mood to paint. Beatriz called earlier, ginisa siya dahil bigla siyang nawala sa party nito. Humingi na lang siya ng tawad. She can't possibly elaborate every details that happened that night. Maaring matuwa ang kaibigan pero ang maugnay sa pangalan ng kapatid nito ay isa pang bagay.
Beside her sketchpad is her phone at the table. Naka phone book nga ang number ng lalaki at maging nasa speed dial. Everything about that man is tempting her to break her own rules and called him. Ilang beses na rin niyang sinubukan pero sadya ngang malakas ang control niya sa sarili. She's proud of it but as the days go by the temptation gets even higher. Ilang beses siyang napapatulala sa cellphone at mamamalayan na lang niyang she's waiting. Either waiting for her to have the guts to call him or him calling her telling he'd had enough.
This is really madness...
Tumayo siya at bumalik sa mansiyon. Nagtungo siya sa kusina at doon niya naaabutan ang mga katulang na mahinang nagtsitsismisan. Nasa kitchen nook sina Pippa at Leah at may kung ano na binabasa. Parehong kinikilig habang tinuturo ang kung sino sa pahina ng mag. Natigil lang ang dalawa ng lumigid siya sa pwesto ng mga ito at nakiusyoso. Naisarado ni Pippa ang kaninang bukas na mag. Napako sa title ang tingin niya, not familiar though. FHM Management... Bigkas niya sa isip.
"Ah...eh...senorita..." Si Pippa na tila naumid ang dila. Mabilis pa sa alas-cuatro na nawala sa harap niya ang dalawa at yumuko. Naiwan siyang mag-isa sa harap ng magazine. "P-Patawarin mo kami, Senorita. Huwag na sana po itong makarating kay Manang Betty. Pihong sermon na naman ang abot namin sa kanya." Siniko nito ang kasama. "Magsalita ka, uy! Gusto mo bang mabungangaan ng dragon."
"Siyempre ayoko," Leah stumbled on her feet when Pippa push her not so gently. Inasikan nito ang kaibigan ng mabilis at bumalik sa kanya ang pansin. "Oo nga naman po, senorita. Break naman po. Baka naman..." Tinaas niya ang isang kamay sa direksiyon ng mga ito para patahimikin. Tumaas ang isang kilay niya ng mapagsino ang nasa front page. It's none other than Vladimir!
Unang kita pa lang sa lalaki alam ni Cielo na papasa itong modelo. Despite his reputation to women talaga naman may itsura si Vladimir na kahuhumalingan ng mga kababaihan. Ma-PR din ito kaya no wonder many fall to his charms. But his half body picture proves that he is more than what meets the eye. He could entice anyone without a sweat. Such power from his eyes. Those magnetic blue pools can easily hypnotize you in just a snap.
But not that powerful than the eyes of that man...
"Senorita, gwapo po, ano?" Ang mabokang si Leah na inagaw ang mag at hinaplos ang front mag. "Crush ko din po ito pero alam niyo tatlo kasi silang may-ari ng FHM. Lahat gwapo talaga at wala kang pwedeng itulak-kabigin!" Eksaheradang lumungkot ang mukha nito pagkatapos. "'Yun nga lang off-limits na si Stef. Fiance niyo na po eh!"
"Uy!" Saway ni Pippa. That caught her curiosity. Binaba niya ang baso sa nook at idinantay ang balakang doon. Now she's in front of the two.
"Stef?" Tumango ito. Binulatlat nito ang mga pahina bago tumigil sa center fold ng mag. Katabi na ulit nito si Pippa at nakipagharutan na ulit. "Malandi ka, Pippa! Magtigil ka nga at nandito si Senorita!"
"Eto po si Sir Stef, senorita," pangunguna ni Pippa na itinuro ang isang lalaki sa page. "Gwapo din nitong si Sir eh! Masungit pero... Senorita, pasensiya na, yummy pa din! Bagay po kayo!" Nagtulakan muli ang dalawa.
Men behind FHM Management, iyon ang caption sa taas. All three looked stellar, almost unreal. Hindi magkakatulad. The three had their own character, own signature. Hindi mo maipagkakamali ang isa sa isa. Walang dudang ang itinuro ni Pippa ay si Stef. He looked serious as hell even in photos. Parang kay mahal ng ngiti nito. Typical of him but nonetheless gorgeous. Sino ang hindi mahuhulog sa karismang taglay nito? Though aloof, he got those brooding looks and the attitude just made it more appealing to the female crowd.
Yet of all the three, Cielo's attention got focused on the raven black hair gorgeous in a double-breasted cream suit. Moreno complexion, high cheekbones, strong jaws. Firmly sculpted mouth. Cross-legged, kampante itong naka-upo sa isang kulay kremang sofa. Hindi ito nakangiti, bagay na hindi nakabawas sa karismang taglay bagkus ay dumagdag pa. Might be the only one who can come out Gatsby Gatsby, suit might look stiff and old but it looks goddamn good on him. Too good, actually.
And that man is none other than Marco Antonio Fuentebella.
JOGGING at the nearby park at 5 o'clock in the morning is what Marco doing since then. Hindi na iyon nawawala sa kanyang sistema. With his phone attached to his right biceps which is connected to his Bluetooth earpiece, he's listening to some Slow Rock songs. Matapos ang ilang laps ay tumigil siya sa isang lilim ng puno at uminom ng tubig sa dalang water bottle. Halos maubos na niya ang tubig nang siya ay tumigil. He'd done a few stretchings before heading back to his condo unit.
Kakapasok pa lang niya sa pad, wiping off the sweat from his face, when the aroma of pancakes filled his nostrils. Sa amoy pa lang ay nakaramdam na siya ng gutom, remembering he only got coffee to stuff in his stomach earlier. Dinala siya ng kanyang mga paa sa kanyang kusina just to see Poleen arranging their breakfast on the small table. She's wearing his shirt that reaches her mid-thighs and that messy bun of hers. The pancakes are already on the table together with slices of bacon, eggs, and toasted bread. Tumigil siya at sumandal sa counter na naghihiwalay sa kusina at sala. She looked oblivious at all. When all is set there's a satisfied on her face. Marco can't helped but smile too. A small one.
Having Poleen on his pad feels all new but refreshing. She insisted on cooking for them instead of having food deliver by the doorstep. Masarap magluto ang dalaga and he discovered she'd learned to cook some famous filipino cuisine. Kagabi ay chicken adobo ang niluto nito and it taste absolutely delicious. With her as his wife they'll surely got wonderful time ahead. Poleen will be a great wife and mother to their kids while he provides everything to them. An ideal family Marco wanted.
He's seeing their future together but why does he have to complicate things? Bakit ba kailangan pang pumasok ni Cielo sa siya mismo ang bumuo? What he has or rather they have for each other will ruin everything. Tama ito.
But what else can they do? The past days was torture. Para siyang tanga kakaintay kung kailan ito tatawag. He doesn't know if Poleen notices how many times he grab his phone out of his pocket to check if there's a call or text coming from Cielo. Tinototo nga talaga nito ang hindi pagtawag but he's still considering a few days allowance. What he's demanding on her was not easy to give. There's a high chance she refused it but hell-bent he'll have her anyway.
Poleen noticed him and smiled sweetly. He pushed other thoughts aside and walked towards her. "I hope you don't mind if I barge in your kitchen. I cook breakfast." He kissed her forehead before grabbing a toasted bread. "You wanna eat or take a shower first? Basang-basa ka na ng pawis..."
"I'll take a quick shower then. Wait for me." Inubos niya ang tinapay bago naglakad pabalik sa kwarto. He took off his sweatpants and his dri-fit shirt and drop it in the laundry bag. Ilang saglit pa'y nasa ilalim na siya ng dutsa.
He let the cold water rundown his body as he collect his thoughts. Should this pursuit be made in the first place? It's unlikely of him to lose his thoughts especially when it comes to women. He always had that unspoken rule to never mixed business with pleasure as any rich bachelor around the globe proclaimed. Women comes by and go like days for him. He stopped living like the old days and start working his ass out for the company. And when he met Poleen the idea of setting down came to picture.
Everything else was on the right track.
He's still on the track but there's an obstruction on the way. A beautiful obstruction to be exact.
Nailapat ni Marco ang dalawang kamay sa tiled wall. As he remained still at the cold shower he thinks of all the possible outcomes of such reckless decision and it all just came to one. Naihilamos niya ang mga kamay sa mukha. Frustrated, he finished his bath on a record time. Nang lumabas siya ng kwarto ay nakasuot na siya ng worn-out jeans at isang white v-neck shirt, brown leather loafer as his footwear and his black coat on his arms.
His get-up made Poleen's brows furrowed. Eyes questioning. "Leaving so soon? Have breakfast muna..." She's seeping his cup of coffee nang maabutan niya. He put the coat at the sofa before sitting at the chair across her.
"I love your pancakes, who says I'll miss it for the world," he got a plateful of pancakes and pour some vanilla syrup. He started to eat. As expected it's delicious. He's almost done when his eyes met Poleen's. Naibaba niya ang kutsilyo at tinidor at napainom ng tubig sa baso. "Is there a problem, Poleen? Why don't you eat up?" Umiling ito. There's a small smile that made its way on her lips.
"I hope you could say the same thing to me. Anyway, saan ang punta mo? Can I come?" The change of subject made Marco remember why he's leaving that early. He continued his food.
"I received a call last night from Vladimir about an urgent matter that needed to be discuss. We have a meeting this morning at FHM," he gave away the details. "Of course you can come. I'll introduce you to the boys. You already met Vladimir. Most probably Stefano would be there..."
"On contrary, huwag na lang," Poleen walks to the sink and wash her cup. "My flight back to Hong Kong will be tonight. I'll just make myself busy pile up my things on my travel bag..."
"Come with me, Poleen. I want you to meet everyone that's special to me. They are my family and will be yours the moment we get married," he's instantly by her side, closed the sink and held her hands firmly. He held to that soapy hands of hers as his eyes held hers. "You've done the first step of meeting my sister. Though I'm truly sorry the way she behaves that night was unacceptable, still I appreciate you being here with me. I was readying myself for another decline invitation knowing you and your priorities," he look down to there hands and held it more firmly than before. "I want you to be part of me in any essence of it. You'll be my wife in the long run and I want you to get used to what I'm doing in the industry. I want to be transparent to you with everything and that means you have to tag along with me while you're still in the country."
"Wow," she looked amazed but pleased at the same time. Her eyes twinkling in delight. "That's a lot of demands coming from you, Marco. But if meeting everyone will make you happy then I'll gladly do it. Wait till I finished the dishes..."
"Ako na," saway niya dito at kinuha ang sponge. "You have at least 15 minutes to prepare. We'll leave in 6:45 sharp." That earned a gasp from her.
"15 minutes is my shower time. How could I...shoot! I need to hurry!" She run as fast as she can towards his room. He suppress a laugh. Ngayon niya nakita ang ganitong side ni Poleen, rattled and scream like a child.
Natapos siyang maghugas wala pang limang minuto ang nakalipas. He waited for Poleen at the living room while scanning the latest magazine. A series of photos was exhibit on the art section and as vast as it is, only one caught his attention. He's staring at Cielo's smiling face while presenting her work on the crowd. Nakapusod ang kulay kapeng buhok, simple lang ang gayak ng dalaga na nakasuot ng light blue tube dress na umabot lang hanggang tuhod na pinatungan ng cream coat. Kung nag-apply ito ng make-up ay very light lamang. Nevertheless, she's beautiful. Breathtakingly beautiful.
But the instant he recognized the man standing right beside her, with a hand place securely at her waist Marco felt the rage building inside him. Bakit katabi ni Cielo ang kaibigan sa picture? We're they related by any chance? And why does he have to fucking place his hand on her waist?
Napunit niya ang pahina at unti-unting nalakumos habang nagpipigil ng sarili. Nakakaramdam siya ng panibugho kay Stefano. Was he the fiance Cielo was talking 'bout? He wanted to stop entertaining thoughts but his mind was like mocking him of images of the two.
"I'm ready," Poleen excitedly announce her presence. She's feeling giddy alright, her heart can't contain the happiness she's experiencing right now. After all that she'd heard from Marco parang bulang nawala ang mga pangamba niya. He's seeing them together. How could she doubt his intentions to her.
Madali siyang nag-shower at sinuot ang binili niyang white sleeveless plaid shirt paired with maong fitted jeans. She used her favorite pumps then hurriedly come out of the room to meet Marco. He's sitting at one of the sofa. Looks like he's reading some papers that he haven't heard her. Lumigid siya sa kinauupuan nito na may malawak na ngiti.
"I'm ready!" Just as how sunny her disposition is ganoon naman ka-gloomy ang awra nito. Bumaba ang tingin niya sa pahina ng magazine na mariin nitong hawak. It was crumpled. She looked up to his face and held it. His face was emotionless. Lips are set in a tight manner. Ni hindi nito itinago sa kanya iyon. "What's wrong?" He shook his head. Bagkus na sagutin ay hinalikan nito ang kanyang palad.
"I see you're done. Let's go. They're waiting for us." Ibinaba nito ang magazine kasama ng nilakumos na papel. He took her hand and stood up. Don't know what got to her but she immediately gets the crumpled paper and hid it behind her back. Mabuti at hindi nakita ni Marco na mabilis siyang iginiya palabas ng pad.
Isinuksok ni Poleen ang papel sa likurang bulsa ng pantalon. She made a mental note to check it later.
FHM stands for the surnames of its fore founder namely Marco Antonio Fuentebella, Stefano Ezekiel Hernandez, and Vladimir Marinov. It all started when Vladimir came back to the Philippines from his Caribbean vacation. Silang tatlong magkakaibigan ay lahat nagsimula sa pagmomodelo at na-miss daw nito ang runway. Vladimir at that time was managing their vast number of casinos and clubs in Europe. He suggested they put up their own modeling agency. Investment. That's how his good friend sales talk them. With their connections to the industry and their humble beginnings as models, madaling nakilala ang FHM Management sa mundo ng fashion as one of the top caliber modeling agency for aspiring models.
Five years and still counting. FHM set the bars high as they've become in demand all over the globe. The head office building reside at the heart of BGC, may dalawa pang satellite offices ang FHM sa ibang bansa, ang isa ay sa New York at ang isa ay sa Madrid.
"We're here," itinigil ni Marco ang sasakyan nang makapag-park sa harap ng building. Tinanggal niya ang seatbelt at lumabas ng sasakyan. Lumigid siya sa kabilang panig at pinagbuksan si Poleen ng pinto. "Let's get you inside. I'll tour you around." Bumaba na ang dalaga at pinagsalikop ang dalawa nilang palad. She's in awe to see a 10th storey building cover up with glass panels in front.
They walk hand in hand inside the FHM building. As planned, Marco toured her around, showing all the amenities the management have to train the models. Aside from the replica of runway on the auditorium at the ground floor where they can practice their walk, they have state of the art gym at the 2nd to those who wanted to be fit. Different workshops are being conducted on every floor and there's a whole lot of wardrobe to choose from on the 6th for the models to try on and experiment. Pinakilala rin niya ang dalaga sa mga nakakasalamuhang trainers. Some thought Poleen should pursue modeling. With that height of hers that reach 5'8 ft and that slender physique combined with her strong European features, she's the typical girl that always grace the runway. She's humble enough to decline such offers telling modelling was not her thing.
A few more detours and they've finally reach the executive floor. Si Nina na siyang secretary ni Vlad ang una nilang nabungaran pagkalabas ng elevator. She smiled sweetly before she ushered them towards the board room. What he didn't expect was to see Vladimir holding Stefano by the lapel of his shirt. Vlad looks ready to beat the shit out of Stefano anytime. Instinctively agad pumagitna sa dalawa si Marco. Nang akmang susugod pa si Vlad ay tinulak na niya ito. Stefano fixed his suit back before sitting at the end of the table. He looked unmoved, bagay na mas lalong ikinagalit ni Vlad.
"Nina, take Poleen to the nearby cafe. Now." Utos niya sa sekretarya na madali naman siyang sinunod. Poleen wanted to protest but he eyed her as he tried to calm Vladimir. Mukhang nakuha naman ito sa tingin at nagpatangay kay Nina. "The hell, Vladimir! Cool down. Ano ba ang problema?" Sinuklay nito ang may kahabaang buhok. Vlad always wear his undercut hair but he could rock a few inches more. Marco looked back at Stefano, searching for answers. "Ano, Stef?"
Frustration was written on Vladimir's face. "Gago ka talaga kahit kailan, Hernandez! Kasal ka na, what the actual fuck were you thinking?" His phasing stop to face Stefano and point a finger on him, his other hand place hard on the table.
"Ikakasal pa lang, Vlad," pagtatama ni Stef. "I've got myself a fiance. Now sit your ass down and let's talk about the business." Vlad unlocked some buttons of his shirt before sitting on the chair nearest to him. He did the same. But the idea that Stefano was married puzzled him?
Married or not it got his curiosity. He held his jaw, thinking all the instances that Stefano break his silence but none. Figured out he had a lot to know about his friend. Vladimir was anxious. He definitely knows something that Stefano hides.
"You probably heard that Tosca has gone missing for days. 3 days to be exact. Hindi na siya ma-contact ng mga agent natin." Vladimir showed the images of a brunette girl with obvious latina features on his tablet. All in bikinis and sexy lingerie that enhance her assets. Marco raises his hand in question.
"Isn't she supposed the model for RedLine." Tumango ang kaibigan. "As far as I know that's 2 days from now. RedLine was one of our valued clients. It'll tarnish our reputation if this Tosca won't show on that day. We value professionalism more than anything."
Stefano but in. "Was there any leads to her whereabouts? Imposible naman na bigla na lang itong naglahong parang bula? Cases like this usually leads to scandals. Are we hiring models without thorough background investigation?"
"You are literally questioning my capabilities, Stefano. I will not entertain such vandal coming from the one who commit one." Patama rito ni Vladimir. Nagiba ang timplada ni Stef, sumeryoso pang lalo ang mukha. Halatang may nasaling si Vlad na isang forbidden subject dito. "Cat got your tongue, mi amigo? Baka gusto mo pang i-kwento ko kay Marco ang ginawa mo 10 years ago? Tutal duda ka sa kakayahan ko, bakit di natin simulan sa'yo?" Prenteng sumandal si Vlad sa likod ng upuan. May nakaguhit na mapanghamong ngiti sa mga labi.
"You don't wanna mess with my temper."
"I'm sure I do. Matagal na rin akong di nakakapag-sparring. My hand itch to punch you at the face---"
"This has to stop. Both of you...just stop." Ngayon para siyang referee ng dalawa. The tension was high between the two and that's not helping solve the problem. "Wala naman tayong matatapos kung palagi niyo uunahin ang init ng ulo. Let's solve the issue first with Tosca before fixing the dispute between the two of you. This is new. Hindi ako makapaniwalang makikita ko kayong mag-away."
"Really the answer here is no brainer." Hearing Stef like that makes his brows furrowed. Vladimir also became interested though. "Replace Tosca then. We have a lot on our turf. Actually I got one for this particular subject."
"Go ahead. We're listening..."
Tatlong sunud-sunod na katok ang nagpatigil sa disgussion nila at pumasok muli si Nina. She's directly eyeing Stefano. "A certain Ms. Cielo Sta. Maria was waiting for you outside. Should I let her in?" Umiling ang kaibigan bago tumayo. He excused himself begore going out of the room.
Marco felt the room temperature shift. He stretched then unstretched his knuckles trying to control the rising emotion inside him. Hearing her name associated with Stefano is another thing. Nakadagdag pa ang larawang nakita niya kanina sa magazine. It couldn't be...
But hell break loose when Stefano came back to the room with Cielo in his arms and introduce her as his fiance. Their eyes met and may God forgive him for he wanted to punish this innocent-looking woman for making him wanted to strangle someone that happens to be his friend. How could the fates entangle their lives together? This is shit!
"I wanted Cielo to model the RedLine Maxi Collections..." Cielo was appalled same with Vladimir. The three argue then afterwards Cielo walked out of the room. Dapat susundan ito ni Stefano nang pigilan ni Vladimir. Now the two resumed the heated argument before. That leaves him no choice but to follow her.
With long, powerful stride naabutan ni Marco si Cielo na papuntang restroom. She's fuming mad so was he that when he grabbed her arms to face him, Marco forcefully claimed her lips, bruising it till he tasted blood. That earned him a slap from her. Hindi agad siya nakahuma. Nabitawan niya ito at hinawakan ang nasaktang pisngi.
Her eyes shot daggers at him. Chest rise and fall due to anger. "I want to strangle you! All of you in general for making me feel inadequate! What am I? Isang bata na walang alam kung hindi ang sumunod sa utos ng iba? Have you influenced him because the way I see things you're the despicable guy of the three."
"Me? Despicable? Maybe I am and you know what the bad wolf do to little, innocent girls like you." Marco turned to her. His eyes lit of immense anger and lust over the same woman. A very dangerous combination."He devoured it wholly." Cielo walked backward, fear replace the frustration on her face. Ang lakad nito'y naging takbo pero maagap si Marco.
Naisandal niya ang dalaga sa pader at agad na naikalso ang dalawang kamay sa taas ng ulo nito. Alarmed, Cielo tried to escape away from him just like before and what else to do but to shut the woman with kisses. Fierce, passionate kisses. Mixed heavy emotions worsen the already messy situation.
Their mouths tried to overruled one another. Her lips are addicting, a kind of drug you'd take over and over again. She'd give you the sweetest taste far more from rich honeysuckles and ripe strawberries it'll leave you wanting more. A mere taste will never be enough. He wanted more.
Hinawakan niya ang panga nito at pinaling sa kaliwa. He buried his head deep in the hollow of her beautiful neck. Both of them are chasing their breaths from their exchange kisses but the thing is, the heat, the lust, the anger is still there. Hindi pa iyon humuhupa at alam ni Marco kung saan papunta ang tagpong iyon. Binitawan na ng isa niyang kamay ang mga kamay nito at kinabig payakap si Cielo. He felt her tremble in his arms. Mas lalong humigpit ang yakap niya sa malambot nitong katawan. It's as if he's afraid to let her go. Afraid of what he might become if he let her go again this time.
"The way I feel about you, I've never felt with anyone else." He confesses in husky voice while savoring the sweet aroma her body emanates. The familiar aroma of gardenias and woman's musk. "Akala mo ba ikaw lang ang nahihirapan? Do you think I've wanted this? I never...ever wanted such complications till you came..." He removed his head from his neck and planted soft kisses on her jaw, cheeks then finally her lips. Ipinagdikit niya ang kanilang mga noo. Cielo closed her eyes so was he. "Everything about you intoxicates me. It fucking drives me crazy just thinking about you and your damn kisses. So tell me what else can I do to mitigate this attraction to you coz you don't have damn thought of how I tried to fight this feeling for you. Nababaliw ako, Cielo at mas lalo akong nababaliw dahil nalaman kong fiance mo pa si Stef!"
"The more reason for you to avoid me," umiling siya. "Look...this whole thing you're doing means nothing in the end. Your lust for me will fade sooner than you expected. Believe me. Focus on what's more important..." He silence her with kisses. Long, torrid kisses. She protested but eventually gave in. He always knew from the very start he had that power over her.
"The wait is over," he said as his body leave the comfort of hers to make a point. Marco touched the swollen lips before reaching her cheeks. He held it with no intention to hurt. She's adamant about the gesture. Inhibitions swirl over her eyes. He put a finger on her lips as she tried to humor him. "I'll pick you up tomorrow and teach everything I know about modeling. I'll guide you throughout the session..."
"That...wil be a bad idea," he kissed her again. He'll not be tired of kissing that delectable lips. "The whole fiasco is bad from the start at...at hindi ako p-pumapayag!" Umiling siya saka ito sinabunutan ng magaan. That tilted her head, her eyes met hers. "I-I don't want to do this..." There's pleading in her voice. He bit his lower lip before refusing her.
"Of course you don't but you have to. You don't have a choice. It's either will have it discreetly or let everyone knows our little drama," umiling ito bago siya tinulak. His heart constricted as he saw tears run down on her face. Gusto niyang aluin ito pero matigas si Cielo. Mabilis na pinunasan nito ang mga luha sa mukha.
"Fine. If that will satisfy you. Fine. If this body will satiate you but after that, you'll leave me. Hindi ka na magpapakita sa akin kahit kailan...dahil ayokong magulo ang buhay ko. It's already messed up and you came along making it more complicated. Just do what you have to do...I really don't care anymore." She walked away for real this time. Hindi na niya ito hinabol at nagkasya na lang sa pagtingin sa papalayo nitong bulto.
He just blackmailed her. How horrible was that? It make him sick inside but...
Napasandig si Marco sa pader at nasuklay ang buhok. He looked up at the ceiling, thinking was he still sane. He already got Poleen but here he is forcing himself to a woman he's not supposed to touch. Nasabunutan niya ang sarili, hard enough to put some sense in his head that this whole things is madness. A madness that won't be satisfied with just one encounter.
I'm so fucked up! Marco hissed under his breath before returning to the room. So much happening in just a span of hours.
This will be a long, tiring day
