NANG malaman niyang isinugod sa pagamutan si Samantha ay kaagad siyang nagbihis upang puntahan ito. Hindi naman iyon tinutulan ni Michael pero hindi siya nito hinayaang umalis ng nag–iisa lalo na at hindi siya nito kasama. Ang dahilan pa nito ay baka makamasama sa kanyang pagbubuntis ang bumiyahe ng mag–isa. Michael, in fact, does not want her to leave the mansion alone or with her bodyguards until the police department has investigated the threats she received previously. She couldn't stop her heart from racing as they were driving to see Samantha. She was so worried about the woman, even though she didn't know her personally, and didn't even get a chance to speak with her when she paid her a visit over a month ago. Thalia was feeling distraught for Petterson as well because she knew how much his sister meant to him. Not to mention the fact that he was blaming Michael for what had
Thalia was horrified when she viewed the image that the sender had provided her. It was, without a doubt, a picture of Vanessa. Her twin sister. She was tied up with a rope against the single chair, as her eyes and mouth were covered. She looked so vulnerable, and it was her entirely fault. Thalia helplessly sat down on the bed with quivering and shaky legs, tears streaming down her cheeks. There was no one to blame but herself.It happened because she chose to be with Michael and ignored the treats. Oh god! What have she done? Vanessa was now in danger because of her. If something bad happen to her sister, she will never forgive herself.Nakaramdam siya ng pagpa–panic. Ito na nga ang kinatatakutan niya. Ang madamay ang kakambal niya sa galit sa kanya ng taong may pakana sa pagdukot sa kapatid niya. Magkahalong kaba at matinding takot ang nararamdaman ni Thalia para sa kapatid niya. Ano ang gagawin niya ngayon? With her trembling hands Thalia tr
ABOT–ABOT ang kaba sa dibdib niya habang lulan ng sasakyan. Sari–saring emosyon ang naglalaro sa diwa niya ng mga sandaling iyon. Batid niyang pagpapatiwakal ang gagawin niyang ito. Pero nungkang magbabago ang isip niya. Kung ito lang ang paraan para maisalba ang buhay ng kapatid niya ay walang pag–iimbot na gagawin niya at hindi na mag–iiba ang isip niya. Mahal na mahal niya ang kapatid at hindi maaatim ng kunsensiya niya kung may mangyayaring masama rito. Kasalanan din naman niya. Ilang beses siyang binalaan ng taong nasa likod nito pero hindi siya nakinig. Hindi siya nadala sa halip ay binaliwala niya ang mga threats sa kanya dahil inuna pa niya ang sariling kaligayahan. And now her identical twin sister is facing the consequences. Damn her! There was no one to blame but herself. It was all her fault! Paulit-ulit niyang senisermunan ang sarili sa loob ng sasakyan.
“BITAWAN MO AKO!”Malakas na hiyaw niya sa malaking lalaking hawak–hawak ang braso niya. Halos kaladkarin na rin siya ng mga tauhan ni Kristina papasok sa isang silid. Walang pakialam ang mga ito kahit babae siyao kungnasasaktanman siya. Kung sabagay ano nga ba ang dapat niyang asahan mula sa mga halang ang sikmurang katulad ng mga ito?“Thalia?”Natigil siya sa pagwawala nang maulingan ang boses ni Vanessa. She felt a wave of guilt wash over her as she saw her sister inside the room. Both of her hands and feet were tied up against the chair as her eyes were blindfolded. Hindi rin nakaligtas sa paningin niya ang napunit na bahagi ng pang–itaas nitong damit.Oh, God! Nanlumo siya at natuptop niya ang sariling bibignang makita ang kalagayan ni Vanessa. Anong ginawa nila sa kapatid niya? Hindi niya napigilan ang kusang pagma
THE GOVERNMENT entrusted the case of the most wanted criminal to the agency owned by Enrique. Because of its credentials, experience, and expertise in handling tough cases such as Victor Pangilinan’s. Knowing that the bastard was behind the abduction of Vanessa and that Kristina Montalban was part of it, Michael was outraged beyond belief. He would make sure to put the asshole in the right place. Son of a bitch!Michael didn't seem to be able to wait any longer. He was so enraged as his face turned into crimson red, he couldn't keep his composure any longer. Not anymore, and certainly not for another fucking minute! He tightened his teeth and clenched his fists in rage. With the wrath storming inside his chest, Michael could probably be capable of killing them all with his bare hands.When they get back from visiting Samantha from the hospital. He lied to Thalia that he had an important thing to sort out in the office. But the truth was he had a mee
KUMALAT na ang dilim sa buong kapaligiran. It was an excellent opportunity for them to strike and rescue Thalia and Vanessa from the criminals. Never again would he allow someone else to harm them both. That was something Michael would make certain about. He would not hesitate to slay anyone who would dare to stop him. Buhat sa madilim at masukal na bahagi ng kasukalan ay maingat at patingkayad na lumapit si Michael mula sa likuran ng armadong lalaki. Walang kahirap–hirap niya itong pinatumba gamit ang kaliksihan ng katawan at ng sariling lakas. Naging madali lang para sa kanya na patumbahin ang lima pang mga tauhan ni Victor nang hindi gumagamit ng armas. Hanggat maaari ay hindi niya gustong makalikha ng anumang ingay na makakatawag pansin sa lahat ng mga tauhan ng talipandas na lalaki. Besides, he was enjoying himself slaying these bastards using his martial art skills. Matagal na panahon din naman niyang hindi nagagamit ang kaalaman niyang ito.Papasok na sana
IT WAS excruciatingly painful for him to accept the truth that Thalia was no longer alive. It was hurting him from the deepest part of his chest. This couldn’t be happening to him. Thalia was not dead. She couldn’t be gone just like that. He didn't want to believe it, and he didn't want to accept it. Oh, for god’s sake! He wasn't going to be able to take it. No! He would not concede the fact that she had died. It's not possible!Hindi siya maaaring iwan ni Thalia. Hindi puwedeng mawala si Thalia at ng anak niya. Hindi maaaring mawala sa buhay niya ang nag–iisa at natatanging babaeng iniibig ng niya ng buong puso. Hindi puwedeng mawala ang mag–ina niya. Hindi siya makakapayag. Hindi!“Bonita… please don’t leave me, baby. Please don’t die on me. I need you, mi amor, I can’t leave without you by my side, mahal ko. Please I’m begging you, don’t go,” sa unang pagkakataon ay humagulhol siya sa iya
PINAGALA NIYA ang mga mata sa kabuuan ng silid. The room was spacious enough for one patient and did not appear to be a hospital room in the least. It has its own living space on the right side of the room, and on the left side, it has a set of tables with different kinds of flowers and fruits of baskets in the middle of it. There was also a small kitchenette next to the dining area. And colossal television hung against the wall. And the bed in which she was sleeping was really comfy.She had never been confined to any kind of luxurious hospital room in her entire existence, and she had no idea that such a facility existed. She could still remember the first and the last time she got hospitalized when she was at a young age, but she was most likely in a wardroom in a public hospital.And she was also damn so sure that the room cost a lot of money. Kung sabagay ubod nga pala ng yaman ang lalaking mapapangasawa niya. Subalit magpakagano’n pa man ay nahihirapa
