"What? He's still not answering? Diane? How is it?"
"He's still not answering, Cass."
"Goodness! I am already so damn worried to that kid. Where the hell did he go?
"We don't know. I even saw Abby earlier at the living room and she keeps on calling him but his phone is off."
I can hear people talking but I cannot determine who are they. I don't know what they're talking about. They just whispering and I cannit barely understand.
I tried to move my fingers and slowly, I opened my eyes. I almost close it again when I am dazzled by the light.
"Abby? Hija, thank God, you're awake!" Said by the frantic voice, I think it was probably coming from my...mom.
I roam my eyes around and I figured out I am lying in my bed inside of our room.
"W-Where is Cloud?" I weakly uttered when I
Abby has no choice but to wait, pray and hope that Cloud is fine. She keep on calling all the saints she knew to help Cloud whereever he is.She can't help but to think why the world was so cruel when it comes to her and Cloud. Since day one, they were always suffering from the problems that keeps on pouring onto them.She wiped the lone tear that escape from her eyes. I wouldn't know why the world condemn us so much. We keep being resilient but fighting with the world wasn't easy.I could feel myself walking in a dark empty road that is no ending. I may not see any light and I feel my heart being struck many times. The only strength I have right now is the truth that I will be a mother soon. The baby in my womb is my last piece and without it, I will be close to quitting."Abby"She look back to see the owner of the voice that called her.It was Nanny who is standing and looking at her.I could see the emphaty on th
Abby's POV:"Wake up sleepyhead"I smiled when I opened my eyes and I was greeted by the handsome face of my husband."Hi" I hoarsely uttered.I shifted my position and stretched my arms. I could feel the pain on my back. My body also feels weak."Good Morning, Mommy." He said and kissed my lips. "And Good Morning to my baby." He lowered down and kissed my tummy.I pouted."I thought, I was just your only baby?" my lips rose up when I saw him stilled."Yes! Of course. You're my first baby and here is my second baby." He winked at me while caressing my tummy making my heart jumped a little."Hmp. Really?!" I throw him a look and pretend I was angry to hide my burning cheeks."Damn, baby. You're mom is cute when she's jealous." He lowered his face and whispere
ABBY'S POV:The night that we celebrated my pregnancy, Arc and Erika had their fight that it surprised us. She was also pregnant. That explains all sudden changes of her that I noticed.I woke up feeling hungry. My stomach was making sounds like they are so eager to eat something. I brushed my eyes and look at Cloud sleeping soundly beside me.He was facing me and his face looks so at peace. He was maybe too tired because it was almost 12 AM when we leave the party.Erika was sleeping in one of the guest rooms because mom did not allow her to drive home. Maybe I should talk to her tomorrow. I stop myself from asking her last night about the things she revealed because I saw that she was in her hardest and I don't want to pressure her.I once again stared at the face of Cloud---those eyes, perfect nose, and gorgeous lips that I always adore. He was so handsome e
I was damn worried with my best friend but I can not do anything but to give her space. I know it was not easy for her but I couldn't help but to be worried.I can sense also that Cloud is always busy and he was doing something I don't know. Cloud was always like that. He seems pre-occupied everyday. He'a always busy with phone calls and sometimes I heard him cussed and acted so annoyed. If I asked him about what happened, he would always tell me it was nothing or he will try to change the topic.I know that he was doing something behind me and that is the reason why I always overthink. I feel like he didn't trust me enough to tell me what was he doing or if there's any problem. I feel betrayed when it was obvious that he was keeping a secret to me.I don't know, it's just that...I feel a little scared about something I can't name.It also added to my stress when I have found out that the employee I suspected was really doing shits insid
Cloud's POV:I know Abby is doubting me. I could notice her indifference. She was always acted unterested and quiet whenever I go suddenly. I know she was hurting by how I acted but I need to keep it from her until I am so sure.Those times that I got missing for a few days, and the time that they discovered that Abby is pregnant, we went to the address of the car that has been seen on the CCTV footage that leave the package in the Zegura's gate. We discovered that it was an abandoned house and when we arrive, we didn't saw someone there but we saw some pictures of a young boy and girl. We can't able to see the face of the kids in the pictures since it is tarnished and very old.There was also some pictures of me and Abby but it was her picture that's been many. I felt scared when I saw that most of her pictures was stolen shots. There was a picture of her entering her car, entering her office and ther
I am frying some hotdogs in the kitchen when I feel someone hug me from behind. I jump a little because of shock which added to my irritation.Even if I don't turn back to look at the person behind me, I really know who ít is. I already memorize the scent of his perfume."Le me go." I seriously uttered while focus my attention to the hotdogs I am cooking."I'm sorry." He huskily said."Just eat." I calmly said to him. He let go of me and prepare the table. I keep my silence and I know he notice it."I'm sorry." He said again. I choose not to say anything and just sat on the chair before looking at him."What are you keeping from me, Cloud?" I slowly asked but there was the eagerness in my voice. His eyes become unfocus and I know how he became fidgeted."Are we going to be like this always, Cloud? You will kill m
Cloud's POV:I pressed my knuckles on my forehead before directly drinking the remaining drink in my glass."What have I done again this time..?" I frustratedly whispered.I was looking at nowhere for a minute before glancing back at my phone. Abby did not call again and when I did dial her number, she's out of reach.I look at the wall clock and my forehead creased when I saw that it was already pass 8 PM. My mind clouded with worry thinking why did Abby called and why she's not yet home."I'm sure by now, she's crying. Damn you, Cloud!" I cussed myself before grabbibf my keys and hurriedly went out of the house.I tried to call her again while I'm on my way to her office but she was still out of coverage."Damn!..." I punch the steering wheel when I stop because of traffic. "Answer your phone, baby." I silently prayed. After some time, I started driving again.I tried to call her mom
Abby's POV:The silence was making me crazy. The atmosphere became so heavy while I am sitting inside of Cloud's car. We were heading home and I can't recognize if he was mad or what because he was so serious.I keep on glancing him while he was focus on driving. I later on choose to stya silent and focus my attention outside.Earlier, he called Arc and after some time, he arrive. He didn't even bother to enter their because it was late and just waited me outside. He didn't talk to me since earlier and I am on close on thinking that he forgot that I am here.I fake a cough and slightly look at him. "You should not bother fetching me, I can call dad, you know." I silently uttered but he remained silent like he did not heard anything. I sigh and shifted my body to sit properly."You are my responsibility." He said after a couple of minutes. I arched a brow
