I kept blinking as I stared at the ceiling. I could not believe Valjerome is lying next to me now, most of all I never thought I would wake up in his arms.
He's freakin 'hugging me.
I have held my breath as I felt Valjerome's arm tightened and drew me even closer to his body.
"You wake up early," he said hoarsely as he pressed his face against my neck.
I feel like my heart will move out of my chest with the force of its beating. I cleared my throat and tried to speak with my quivering lips.
"It’s morning already, Val," I softly said.
He just hummed and nodded against my neck. I could even feel him sniffing.
"Are you still sore?" he asked.
My face automatically heated up as I remembered what we did last night.
"Val!" I shouted when his hand cupped my womanhood.
"Good morning, Señior," Valjerome's staff politely greeted him as soon as we entered the company.I saw how their eyes analyze my being when they looked at me, examining my presence with their boss as if it is like seemingly strange. There are also others who simply murmured perhaps they saw the issue about us in the news.Valjerome didn't bother to greet back. He just continued walking like he heard nothing from everyone. I quietly followed while Jaime and some of his staff were behind us.I faked a smile and looked at where I am walking to. I was hoping in a few seconds. I was hoping that he would officially introduce me here in the company as his wife.Who am I fooling with?I am about to think that he was just jealous yesterday that’s why he announced our relationship. But I knew I would only make myself expect for nothing, he only did that to annoy Chao
"M-Mr. Montevardo, can you please...center Ms. Zamora?" hesitantly and apprehensively said by the photographer."Mrs.," Valjerome whispered emphatically and did the other way around.He pulled me closer to his body. I unconsciously sighed for him to look at me."Val, this is a triple shoot. Our pose for this is I should be in between you and Chaos, not only by your side," I simply murmured.I felt Valjerome's grip tightened on my hip. He slightly bent over to my ear to whisper."I will kill him before he touches you," he grinned.I shrove unbelievably. I don’t know if I should be afraid of what he does or rejoice to the attention he is giving me. And because I’m totally stupid, I prefer to do the second.Maybe it's not wrong to expect, right?"This shoot won't end, Val. Only just for now.
It was already twelve o'clock midnight but Valjerome hasn’t returned home yet. He left after the commotion earlier in the living room. He always gets angry but this was the first time he acted like this so I couldn't help but worry for him.For countless times, I can’t be comfortable with my position on the bed. I sighed as I stared at the ceiling, not knowing if it was because I was worried that I couldn't sleep or because I got too used to being next to him.For more than a month that the two of us have been close, he has been sleeping in my room. Even though I wanted to ask him, I just ignored it and be happy with what he was doing.Maybe he's trying to fix our marriage, but he doesn't have the guts to tell me.When I can’t fall asleep, I decided to get up and go to the kitchen for a drink."Hmmm…what do we have here?" I whispered as I looked
"It's just so unfair," Azy murmured behind my back as the stylist straightened my hair.I looked at him and raised an eyebrow from the reflection of the mirror."When we're stressed, our faces look ugly. But if it is as beautiful as you, just with a smear of foundation, boom! You are a goddess again," he stated.I just rolled my eyes and ignored him. This will be one of those days where he will just notice and criticize my every action."Are you okay?" he inquired, there was concern and seriousness in his tone as he stared at me from the mirror.I forced a smile. Am I okay?"Yeah," I sparingly answered.It's been two weeks since that argument.He didn't seem to believe it, but he never tried to ask for more."Ahmm. Will he...pick you up?" he asked afterward.
"Just chill, Jazzie," I talked to myself.I sighed numerous times while staring at the square pregnancy test. I am currently in the bathroom and waiting for the result to come out from the tester.I bit my lower lip when the red mark appeared. I unconsciously held the sink and stared at my reflection in the mirror.What should I do?I don’t know what I should feel at these times. I was confused¾overwhelmed and nervous."Aren't you done there yet?" I heard Valjerome's talking from the outside.I firmly held the pregnancy test and then walked towards the door. I slowly turned the doorknob until our eyes met as soon as I opened it. He's sitting on my bed¾arm crossed and emotionlessly stared at me.I felt pain in my chest because I didn’t even see him as happy as I read in books. But what would I ex
I woke up from a gentle caress on my cheek. Even though I kept my eyes closed, I knew that Valjerome's presence was on my side based on the mixed scent of wine and his perfume.He didn't speak. He just kept stroking my face as if he's memorizing every part of it.Even though I want to be angry with him, I'm more consumed by weakness. What can my anger do?I stiffened when I felt him crouched on my belly. He laid his head on it and then gently caressed my stomach. I simply bit my tongue and tried to hold back my tears.I want to believe that he is feeling guilty. I want to believe in what he is currently showing.But I know I was only fooling myself.Valjerome remained in his position for more minutes until he slowly moved away from me. I felt him stood up then carefully carried me. He then started walking.I had
"Jazzie," our supervisor called.I quickly put down the towel I was holding and approached her."Yes, ma'am?" I spoke politely while bowing a little."The guest has already checked out at suite six. Go there and clean the room for the coming guest," she commanded calmly and handed me the keycard for the room she was referring to."Alright," I replied sparingly and hurried away with the tools I would need for cleaning."Jazzie, let me help you," Ken offered as he greeted me in the hallway.Ken is one of my co-workers, I am currently a housekeeper at a five star hotel. This has been my job for almost five years.I smiled sparingly and let him support me with the cleaning tools. "Thank you," I said."No, it’s fine! It's just a simple thing," he said.I just smiled and walked along with him. A f
"Why don't you just work for my company?" Chaos uttered.I stared at him and then continued to caress the hair of my son who was sleeping soundly on my thigh."I am okay with my job, Chaos," I replied.We are currently in my condo now. I took my son home after I picked him up from his house earlier."Why don't you just accept your former manager's offer? You are pushing yourself too hard on that job, Jazzie," he said.My lips twisted. I turned my gaze to the other side of the sofa.“I already have a child, Chaos,” I remind her."And?"I sighed and shook my head. "Being a model is also like being an actress. Many will get curious to look deeper in your personal life. If I come back, they will definitely ask why I suddenly disappeared then," I explained.“What now if they find out
