I don’t know if I am still sane or what, but I really couldn’t understand myself. I watched him clean the table after I take a drink of the water after the medicine. Silence is the only thing I can hear between us. After what happened earlier no words escapes our mouth. I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what to do.
I wanted to leave earlier but now why does my body wants to stay?
“I’ll just wash this in the sink,” he said seriously and left the room. I wanna say something before he left but my lips aren’t responding with what I want.
I lay down on the bed and stared at the ceiling. He clearly told me that he was frustrated of seeing me with Fin, Gray and Rael but why? I want a clear explanation. I want to know what does he feel about me? What does he think about me? Why was he frustrated? Was he jealous just like how I was when I saw him with Lexis or Janice?
CHAPTER 30I woke up in the morning feeling fine. I don’t have any headaches anymore. I heard the birds chirping from outside the window and saw how the sunlight hits the glass window of Ronald’s room. I sighed heavily as soon as I heard the doorknob clinging.I saw Ronald entered the room with his already damp hair. He looks perfect in the morning. He looks different from what I used to see him. He’s not wearing his eyeglasses now that makes him really looks a bit new.“Did you sleep well?” he asked and walked towards me. I panicked a bit when he reached my forehead to check my temperature.“I-I’m fine…” I said and held his wrist to put down his hand on my forehead. I saw him smirked.“Of course, you’re fine, you’re frowning now,” he said and shook his head. I rolled my eyes. If you just know that I am now broken hearted because of you, you won’t smi
CHAPTER 31“Is this all you get?” I asked Ronald after checking the information he got from his father’s clinic. I read the whole information, but it only contains his name, address, age, and some simple information about her. Her name is Felicia Guevarra, 54 years old and currently living here in San Isidro province.“That’s all I can get. That is her resume that she submitted when she was still applying with dad,” Ronald said.“So…we are not sure if her address here is still up to date,” I said while staring at her information. I looked at her familiar picture attached on the paper. She looks younger here than the last time I saw her.“We should visit her address,” I said and stood up. We’re still here in the Madrigal’s house after we finished breakfast. Of course, I asked him the information he got before we proceed on finding her. Ronald nodded and took someth
CHAPTER 32The car stopped in front of a small old house. It was a rotten old house, actually.“Are you sure, is this it?” I asked while staring at the house. One blew of the wind here it will surely be going to get wash out.“I’m sure it is, Cristine.” Ronald said. We both went out of the car while our eyes are on the house. We quietly walked near the house and checked the whole surrounding.“I think there’s no one here, Ronald.” I said based on the whole ambiance. Ronald didn’t talk and just knock on the door.“Is there anybody here?” Ronald called out. I looked around. I have a bad feeling about this. Based on the whole surrounding something happened here. The rock on the ground has cracks and not on their rightful places, like there’s a trouble happened here. And also, the house…I feel like it was abandoned for days.“Mrs. Felicia Guevarra?
CHAPTER 33Without thinking twice, I run towards them and pushed Carlos away from Ronald. I felt Fin, Gray and Rael followed me and went to Carlos back, in case he’ll do something bad. I felt Ronald’s got shock by my sudden arrival.“What are you doing, Carlos?” I grittily asked. But he just smirked that made me annoyed. I don’t know why he suddenly talk with Ronald, and I really don’t have a good feeling about this. Carlos is with Herman, and everything they do is all evil. So, seeing him with Ronald made me feel shit.“I was just talking to him. I was very nice to him, Cristine.” He said with an obvious evil grin plastered on his lips. I baled my fist and glared at him. He raised a brow like he’s not afraid of what possible things I can do to him.“Leave him alone before I kicked your ass out of here, Carlos.” I said warningly. He laughed like an evil. Damn it! Just hearing
CHAPTER 34Ronald is sporting a frowning face as he drives back to Mrs. Felicia’s abandoned house. I told him to drive back to her house because these three men with us we’ll help us. I have a feeling that he doesn’t like the idea of it. He doesn’t like these three men sitting in the back seat.But aside from having a frown face he didn’t say anything and just quietly drove the car. But then…I am bothered. He’s been quiet since we talked, and I am worried. What is he thinking? Is he mad? Why? I don’t know. I heaved a deep sigh and just looked at the window to watch the establishments we’re passing by.“Cristine…” I heard Fin called me from the back. It’s funny how these three fit-in the back seat. They are so huge that I can’t imagine how they fit-in themselves inside.I looked at Fin who was also staring at me. I stared at the bottled water he’s offe
CHAPTER 35“What the hell happened?” I asked horrified with Mrs. Felicia’s body covered with blood. I looked at Ronald who’s already checking her pulse.“Let’s get her in the hospital,” Ronald said and carried the nurse towards his car. Gray and I followed him.“Cristine, hold down her wound with this cloth to stop her bleeding. I’ll drive,” Ronald instructed. I nodded and immediately went beside Mrs. Felicia and hold down the cloth to stop her wound for bleeding.“What do you think happened to her, Ronald?” I asked with the fast beating of my heart. I hoped too much that it wouldn’t turn this way, but it still did. Mrs. Felicia is badly hurt.“It’s a wound came from a claw.” Ronald said that made me stiffened. Gray looked at me, and in that look, I know what he’s thinking. Could that be? Carlos is the reason for all of this?W
CHAPTER 36I don’t know what to say now that I am fucking nervous. I feel like my whole body is frozing, I can’t move a single part of my body because Ronald is here cornering me and I am here in front of him, chickening inside. I am not like this. I’ve never been like this. There’s no man had made me like this, except this man in front of me!“I-I don’t know what you’re talking about…” I nervously said. I don’t know why I am acting like this. All my life I am the one who intimidated others but now…I don’t know anymore.“Tss…” he hissed. I heaved a deep sigh when he finally stops nearing me. He took a tissue and wiped off his hands. Damn it! What was that?“Let’s go,” he said snobbishly. My brows furrowed and watched his back opening the door, but he stopped when I cleared my throat in purpose.“Are you really sure we&r
CHAPTER 37I looked at my reflection in the mirror. It fits and look good on me but why am I still not satisfied? Is it because it was too pricey? I heaved a deep sigh and come out of the dressing room. I looked around to see if Ronald is already done but I couldn’t see him, I guess he’s still not.I was about to sit on the chair in the corner when I saw who entered the store. My brows furrowed when I saw that it was Janice. A girl who always with Ronald if Lexis is not there. I wanna rolled my eyes but I don’t want to be look rude for her. I am blunt but I am also kind, if necessary.Janice looked at me with an obvious recognition in her eyes. She knows me. It’s obvious. Well, I am always with Ronald, and I am also seen with Lexis sometimes. She didn’t talk and choose to near in the dresses rack to choose. I stood up when I saw Ronald went out of the dressing room.I was about to go to him when Janice’ ey
