RUBY LANE HAD taken us to her family home. Gusto pa sanang sumama ni Ross sa amin pero pinagbawalan na siya ni Ruby Lane. To make him really stay, she told him to take good care of Miracle while we were away. Hindi naman na umangal pa si Ross at pumayag na lamang na manatili roon. Hindi na rin kami nagpahatid pa sa drayber niya dahil iyong sasakyan na nirentahan na lamang namin ni Deon ang ginamit namin papunta kina Ruby Lane.
When we reached her place, we found her abode to be simple yet seemingly bright and alive. There were different sorts of plants in their yards which ran a gamut from flowering to non-flowering and from big to small. The plants beautifully matched and ornamented their house’s white wall with brown outlines for doors and windows that were made from wood. It gave a certain type of peace and familiarity. Iyon bang kahit na hindi magara ay naroroon iyong tunay na kayamanan sa loob, sa bawat miyembro ng pamilya nila.
OUR TALK WENT on where we found out more about the past of the Acosta Family that can be traced back to us and also to what happened to Deon’s pack.“I-I am sorry…” pausal na paghingi ng paumanhin ni Tupe sa akin habang nakayuko pa rin ang ulo niya.Thinking about the things that happened in the past, I suddenly realized that Tupe scared the hell out of me and yet… he never hurt me. Looking at him now, I understood why. He might look terrifying but he was never the type who will hurt anyone. Nakayuko lang iyong ulo niya na para bang nahihiya akong tingnan sa mga mata ko kahit na hindi naman niya ako talagang nakikita. Tama nga si Tita Dimples. She did not raise her children to become violent and evil. Tupe seemed more like a gentle giant to me. Mukhang napilitan lang talaga siya noon…Tinanguan ko siya at sinabihang, “Naiintindihan ko na ang lahat ngayon. You have my forgiveness.”Dahan-d
WE WENT IMMEDIATELY to the Cavendish Palace. Pagdating namin ay agad kaming iginiya ni Ruby Lane sa parang meeting hall ng lugar. Ross was still attending to the kids kaya hindi agad namin siya nakita o nakausap man lang. Dumiretso lang kaming lahat dito. Inihiga ni Deon ang wala pa ring malay na si Tito Leon sa upholstered couch na nasa tabi.“Manang, pwede pong pakitawag si mama rito?” magalang na utos ni Ruby Lane sa katulong na umalalay sa amin papasok dito. “Pakisabi na rin po sa kanyang dalhin po iyong mga niluto niya kasi kailangan na po namin dito.”Naalala kong kaya palang magpagaling ng mga pagkaing nagagawa ni Tita Dimples. Hindi ko tuloy maiwasang mapapatitig sa kalmadong si Ruby Lane habang nagbibigay ng iba pang mga panuto sa empleyado. She was calm and really… smart. Pulidong-pulido iyong plano niya and not a slightest sight of panic can be observed from her. Sobrang talino ni Chadleen but she would sometim
DUMATING NA SINA Chadleen at Felix dito sa dating bahay namin sa Sidero. I called them to enlist their help in freeing Deon’s whole pack from Igor and Vicenzo. “Natawagan mo na ba sina tito?” nag-aalalang tanong niya agad sa akin pagkatapos niya akong yakapin. “Oo, natawagan ko na sila. We need their help, too. Nagulat sila at nagalit but then when I told them na balak gamitin ng mga Nodram mula sa South Region ang pack nina Tito Leon upang sakupin ang buong Abseiles ay pumayag naman sila agad. Actually, they’re already on their way here.” “Sinong kasama nila?” “Mommy said it will only be daddy, Kuya Will, and Tito Khalil.” “Si Miracle?” she asked after looking around. “Did you make sure that they are in a safe place?” Tumango naman ako upang siguraduhin iyon sa kanya. “Nasa kina Ross sila kasama nina Tita Dimples at Kidlat.” Sunod ko namang binalingan ang kapatid niyang si Ruby Lane na tahimik lang habang mata
Hello, Charmings! 🤗 This will be the end of a guide called the back matter, or simply the epilogue. I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude that you have come with me this far. I will forever treasure all the gems, reviews, comments, and coins that you have shared with me. Writing Witchita’s Guide to Successful Parenting has always been one of my greatest dreams – a witch’s story that would undertone a deeper theme which was about sex and gender roles. Now, I am glad to announce that the story of this Witchita Family will not end here. We will still have 3 or more tales under the Witchita Series. We will have Ross and Ruby Lane’s story, Chadleen and Felix, and Mignonette and her ringmaster love interest (yes, a carnival theme story). Without your support, I would not have also reached this far. I certainly owe you a lot, and I will promise to make more and improve in each st

Warning: This chapter may contain scenes not suitable for readers aged eighteen and below. Reader discretion is advised. TODAY WAS MIRACLE’S second birthday and mine and Deon’s first wedding anniversary. Sinadya talaga naming isabay sa birthday ni Miracle ang kasal namin noon para mangyari ito – isang double celebration. However, Deon and I felt really exhausted with our daily routine, papasok kami sa kolehiyo nang salit-salitan tapos aalagaan namin si Miracle at gagawa pa ng mga gawaig-bahay. Ayaw niya pa rin kasing kumuha ng makakatulong sa amin sa pag-aalaga kay Miracle dahil gusto niyang maging hands-on kami sa pagpapalaki sa anak namin. I let him because I feel like he was doing this to project the things he wa

His bigger problem arrived in the human form of his best friend, Ruby Lane Acosta, with who he had fallen deeply in love since they were seven years old. The thing was, Ruby Lane did not seem to heed his feelings even after all the years. Instead, she kept pushing him away. His biggest problem happened when he got pregnant with her and foun
