Tatiana felt like her soul left her body. Her breathing hitched and her body stiffened, unable to move. She had blinked a couple of times. Were her ears hallucinating?
"Can't you hear me?"
His voice was as calm as the water in a lake but it made her shiver. Her mind had stopped functioning at this moment. What came into her mind when she entered this room? She never dared to enter it. But why now? What stupidity had gone into her mind?
She felt cold. She fisted her free hand. She could feel the sweat on it. Her other hand that was holding the frame could not stop from shaking. 'What now, Tati?' she thought.
"I said, face m
Coming or Not?Tatiana wanted to disappear suddenly. She could not eat well because her hands were trembling. They were currently eating and Hades was there. He did not mention anything about what happened earlier but she was still ashamed. If only the ground would open up and swallow her."Tati," Athena spoke.She raised her brows and glanced at her. "Ye-yeah?" She saw in her peripheral vision that Hades' eyes were on her. Her palm sweated."We're going shopping after Serena's check-up tomorrow. So you better list things that you wanted to buy," Athena said."But—""Na-uh. Just do what I'v
MushroomsHades drove the car to the pediatric clinic. They were all silent.Tatiana had attempted so many times to speak but there were no words that came out from her mouth whenever she opened it. She wanted to ask why Hades was the one who drove them to the clinic. She wanted to ask where Uncle Mike was. But she was too nervous to voice out her thoughts.They had a peaceful ride. And how could they have not? No words had slipped their mouths. Serena did not even make a noise because she fell into a deep slumber."We're here," Hades' baritone voice was the one to break the silence.Tatiana's mind flew high that she did not notice they were already in fr
University "Good morning, Aunt Lolita!" Tatiana greeted beamingly. "Good morning, too, Tati," the old lady, who was watering the plants in the garden, greeted her back. "Aunt Lolita, has Hades come home already?" Tatiana asked. Aunt Lolita turned off the faucet and faced Tatiana. "I haven't seen him yet. And also, his car isn't still in the garage." She dried her hands using the towel hanging on her shoulders. "Oh…" Tatiana scratched the tip of her nose. "Why? Do you need something from him?" Tatiana laughed nervously
Treasure“So, that’s all for the forms you needed to fill up for the enrollment. If you have any questions...” Ms. Malimba glanced at Hades flirtatiously. “... you can tell Hades so he can call me directly.” She eyed on Tatiana and smiled perfectly at her.Tatiana smiled back faintly. “T-thank you, Dean Malimba.”They were currently in the living room.Tatiana had finished filling up the enrollment forms so it was time for Ms. Malimba to go.Ms. Malimba offered her a handshake which Tatiana accepted with a doubt. "I hope you'll enjoy attending Malcolm." The dean immediately dropped the young girl's hand after what
KissTatiana’s shallow sleep was interrupted by Serena’s sudden cries. With sleepy eyes, she picked the tiny clock on her bedside table.It was just 4 at dawn.She lightly scratched her eyes, then she got up and went towards the crib.She grabbed on the side rails of the crib. And stared at her daughter for seconds. “Good morning, angel. Are you hungry?” she asked in a soft voice.Serena cried in response.Tatiana chuckled and bent to get Serena in the crib.“This little baby’s hungry?” She even
VisitorsHow quickly could everything change? Could somebody tell how fast things could get twisted? Where could this change take you?Tatiana was staring solemnly at her ten-year-old daughter. She had a habit of staring at Serena since she was born.Serena was sleeping on the hammock in the garden made for her. And her mother was swinging her.As usual, the little baby was in a deep sleep. Her face was serene. It was just like she had no problems other than sleeping and sipping her mother's milk.Tatiana could not help to get teary while smiling as she was staring at her child. It was already uncountable how many times she silently thanked God. She thank
Chapter 13.2The cold air was flying Tatiana's hair. It was also blowing her face, adding chills down her spine. A deafening silence passed between them. Only the sounds of the leaves flew by the wind were only to be heard.She could not remove her gaze at Hades. And the same with Hades to her.Only her rapid heartbeat was all she could hear. Here she was again. Drowning for his eyes and words.In a short span of time, she had already planted a seed of admiration for the man. And she knew that the longer they would stay by his side, the longer he would water that growing seed."Hades!"The
