I am younger daughter of one of the biggest farm owner in the province. We are the huge supplier of fresh farm eggs in the province as well as in the city. Being always busy in the farm I left in the care of my brothers and sister.
I grew on a care of my older brother's and my sister Kyla, since Mom and Dad busy working in the farm. From primary to junior high school I’m always top off the class. I never miss any activities in school which my Mom and Dad so proud of me. I remember when I was on grade school there where times that my parents can't come on my recognition day. I’m upset and envy to other kids because their parents didn't miss any activities on the school. But my sister Kyla never misses a chance to explain everything to me, my parents hard work It's because for our own sake. My parents sacrifices makes me more eager to achieve my dreams and make them proud of me.
On the summer of 2001, Me and my siblings pay a visit on our Mom and dad since we live in the city. We surprised them and totally they are. At night my Mum cook a nice meal for us, her specialty which is Paella Tortilla Española and Gambia’s. She even grilled a turkey for us. We had a very nice dinner that night. A night full of happiness!. While doing a bone fire my brother Samuel pickup his guitar and do the string for us while me and Kyla singing my mum and dad favorite song. "Te Amo" That song make my Mum and Dad reminisce their younger days, the day they met and made the promised to be together until they get old. Seeing them being this happy made me wish someday I will find that kind of love too.
The next day
My father has a big investor's meeting and we had to make sure everything was okay. We had to make a nice and good impression to him. He is one of the Multi Millionaire in the City as well as in the country. Getting his approval our farm will get enough fund to supplies more farm products not just in the city as well as in the whole province. So this meeting is really important to us. Since our farm has already 50% bankrupt due to mild infestation on our poultry section. During their meeting me and my brother Samuel was milking the goat. I noticed a not so familiar face luring around the Turkey's area. My eyes rolled up when I saw him being attacked by the Turkey's. I shouted and one of our helpers came and help to distract the angry Turkey. Me and my brother Samuel ran and saw the boy had mild scratches on his legs. But the he didn't cry he is strong as a bull.
"Are you okay?" asking him sincerely worryingly
"Yeah I’m okay, just got a little scratches but It's fine, No worries" he smiled like there is nothing happen
Samuel help him to stand up and told him. "Are you sure you're okay? I can bring you on the clinic to clean your wounds and put some medicine on it?!?"
No it's okay, It's not a big deal!!"
"Justin!" a big and loud voice suddenly appeared it was Mr. Andreas our future investor.
"Dad" he walk briskly toward Mr. Andreas seeing him a little bit nervous.
What happen to you? Why is your clothes dirty???!!" confused
Our dad is talking us in the eye and whispering what happen. As my brother was about to speak
"I just fell down Dad!, I didn't notice there where rocks. My fault! I slipped and got scratches but it's fine, not a big problem!" and he looked us and blink his eyes.
My brother Samuel was surprised and just smiled at him.
"Okay let's go!, I need to be in the city in an hour!" his father started to walk while he said to my father that he's going to send all the papers tomorrow. I was starring at them when all of the sudden the boy whom Mr. Andreas son is waving to me.
"I’m Justin!!! nice to meet you!!" he smiled and blink his eyes. I got surprised and I didn't notice my cheeks was turning red. I felt akward why he do that? Asking in the back of my head.
I turn back taking a deep breath. My father was shacking my hair and at smiled at me.
"Your cheeks is red as an apple!" I felt shy and run. I never understood what is this I’m feeling I was just 13 but I felt a magic but somehow irritated.
"Shah!!!! Ah!. That boy!! I’m pissed because of him they're teasing me!!" I’m totally unaware that my sister Kyla was behind me listening to me "Bettina ?!, whose that boy your talking about??" asking curiously
“Ah!?, no!.. nothing Kyla!, It's not important!” trying to cover my cheeks, she might noticed that I was lying Kyla has a best instinct in everything
"Are you sure?? I heard you!?!" trying to convince me to tell what was it is
"Yes! I’m sure!" Kyla just nod his head and asking me to come inside.
"I cooked your favorite food, I know you like it!" she smile at me knowing this way my mood will change. She is a best sister ever!!. Kyla always make sure that I’m always happy and comfortable. She is one of the selfless person I ever know.
"C'mon!! What are you waiting?! You don't like to eat?? I’m starving!" I hurriedly came and hold her hands and went inside.
I sat down and she gave me Churros with hot chocolate sauce and Apple pie empanadas and my mood changed all the way. For this is all my favorite food. I really enjoy eating while talking to Kyla. She is always the best.
The next morning, I saw a familiar face and it made me feel irritated. "It's him again!" Argh! "What he is doing here again?!" talking myself while hiding in livery stable. "He can't see me! They will teased me again!!" "I need to leave now!" I take a deep breath and about to make a step when I heard a familiar voice.
"Bettina!!" my eyes rolled "Oh no! What should I do" My head tells me to run, but apart of me saying I have to act modestly. So I take a deep breath again and face him I smiled politely.
"Hi, nice to see you again" he smiled charmingly
"Hello, nice to see you too" smiled strainedly
"Oh I’m sorry about yesterday I didn't had a chance to introduce myself in a nice way!" I'm Justin" he held out his hand and me being polite I held my hand too. We both smile to each other. Suddenly we made a magic connection. A minute had passed but Justin was holding my hands.
"Oh Excuse me! You can let go my hands!!" I felt shy but still composed. I have to hide this awkwardness. My mum always taught us to act modest and formal when infront of people.
"As soon as he let my hands go! I put it right away in my back trying to cover my shyness.
Since then Me and Justin started our path as a friend. Once in a while he visited me when I am in the farm. Even if I am in the city we became a best of friend. And that's where our story as a couple started. A summer of 2001!
When was I was in Junior high I met my bestfriend Rosa. She was approachable and easy to get along with. I'm introvert while Rosa is Extrovert. I'm outdated while she is fashionable. But our differences make our friendship stronger. I treated Rosa as my little sister. I treated her as my family. We both dreamt to became a Doctor so we decided to went on the same Medical School. We loved to stick together. During Internship we assign on the same hospital. And this was crazy we reaching our dreams together. We are really best buddies. After so many years of hardwork we finally became a residence doctor. I am became a Surgeon and She became a Anesthesiologist. Our friendship started to get bitter when It happen to run on my old acquaintance. It's my first love "Justin" a guy who always put butterflies on my stomach, a guy with a blue eyes blonde hair and one of the Top player o
I used not to believe in a long-distance relationship a.k.a Ldr. It is a really challenging situation to the both parties. Several trust issue might come along the way. Why would anyone choose to be with someone who can't be there. Suddenly, I understood no one wants to be with a long-distance relationship. But when you already on that situation you will embrace it will all your heart. You will able to accept all the challenges might come, people stay because of one irrevocable reason- Love. A love that worth everything. Our time difference is one of the major problem we encounter. Being separated from someone you love takes emotional, psychological, physical stress. There where times you want to be with him on your dark days but he wasn't able to do that. During night time I make sure to give him a time so we can catch up on what was happening to us. Yes most of the time I'
Working fulltime as a student doctor was quite intimidating. There where times Senior doctors treat as so badly some other inspired us and motivate. The first day was exactly the antithesis of theglorious vision I had of saving lives; the attending physician had already left for the OR as he had multiple surgeries lined up for the day and, ‘we could go home if we wanted or hang around’. I remember during our internship days me and Rosa was always my buddy. Doing SOP in checking the patient. The hard part is when me and Rosa was assigned to E.R. “This is going to be hell!!” Rosa whisper me nervously “Are you ready for the real battle Sis?!?” question her in intimidating way “Haha!! Of course are you ready to rumble?!?” hahah! “Hey! Ladies! Here in trauma 2 faster!” we immediately run a
Rosa stay on my apartment after all of the commotion happen in the bar last night. I woke up when as soon as I noticed the sunlight is right on my face. It’s already 7:30 in the morning. I stretch my arms and stand up. “Good Morning world! Thank you for another day heavenly father!" this is my daily routine every morning since I was young. My mom taught us to be thankful and grateful for a chance to wake up every day. It’s heavenly father endless gift to everyone. As soon as I finished my bed, I went straight to the bathroom and brush my teeth. I also do my morning regimen. My favorite skin routine which is “Perfectly Skin" It is one of the highly recommended brand since it’s mild and safe even to a pregnant woman. That is why recently many people noticed my fair and younger looking skin. After I finished my beauty regimen. I made our breakfast. I cooke
Travis Pov I am now ready to confess my feelings to her. I will not let this opportunity to past. I've already earned Bettina's trust. After her last relationship It's hard for her to trust and have a mutual feelings to anyone. But I prove her wrong. "Hello! Gorgeous!" that's what I called her when I'm trying to please her "Oh hello Mr. Travis. Why are you calling me?" "I just want to remind you I made a reservation in "La Pueblos" at 8:00 in the evening. Dont forget okay!" I felt excited and hype that time. I really feel a positive outcome for my proposal "Oh yeah! I won't forget it okay. I already arranged my schedule. I will be out anytime soon!" "Okay! See you later Bettina!" "See you later Travis!"
I felt a cold wind touching my skin. Autum is not approaching. The smell of the wind started to change it is more cooler and begin to dry. Morning dew starting to grow everywhere. I was in my Veranda seized the opportunity to relax for a while. I was a little bit stress lately. Suddenly I felt a warm hands touching my skin from behind. I felt warmer! I felt secured now. "Good Morning Love!" I heard a gentle voice whispering behind my ears. I started to feel a tinkling sensation when he started to kiss me on my neck. I lean my back on his chest as he still holding my hands while emabracing me. It's been a year since me and Travis decided to live together. After a few months of relationships he asked me to move and start a life with him. We talked about getting married but still I am not ready for it. And he respect me with that. "Good Morning to Love!

I called Rosa right away after me and Justin finished talking. I asked her if she can come to me on the parking lot. "Oh my Gad Sis! What happen?!" She was bewildered as she seeing me in a distraught situation. She hop in my car and start brushing my back and trying to calm me down. "Sis tell me what happen? Did Justin hurt you?" as she continued brushing my back. I take and deep breath and sigh before I speak. "No he didn't Sis! We just talked about what happen on the day he decided to split up with me. I am not supposed to get affected but I am!" my tears are now starting to burst. I can hold back anymore what I am feeling. "Sis you must control that feeling, because of that you're going to be hurt again. See! yourself look at you!? It'
