"Where have you been, Aries?" Mama exclaimed. I bowed my head in humiliation. They were all angry and unhappy with me. I can tell by the way they look at me. Grandma remained silent the entire time, shaking her head, while Grandpa Benji stared at me. Papa was just staring at me, concerned. Mama was simply pacing back and forth.They all came here after learning that I had returned. "Where is Nola? Is she okay?" Mama inquired. I was supposed to ask the same question!He didn't say farewell to my parents? "I was about to ask you that," I explained. That enraged my mother."What?! You don't know where your wife is?! What the hel
We've returned to Manila.I immediately informed Aunt Hen that I would be returning to Manila as soon as Aries and I reconciled. I also apologized for the unexpected news. I've only been with them for about a month, so it's embarrassing for me to be leaving so soon. Aunt Hen, of course, said it was fine. She simply asked me to stay another month so that they could find a replacement for me. I agreed right away. Aries and I discussed it as well, and he agreed.But he traveled back and forth between Manila and Tacloban because of me. When I was leaving, I told him to come back, but my dear husband did not listen.Aunt Hen hugged me and said, "Come back here to Leyte, okay?""Thank you very much, Aunt Hen..." I mumbled. I smiled as I let go of her hug. He returned my smile and wiped away my tears. "I promise I'll pay you a visit!" I exclaimed. He promised to take me to Limasawa Island if I
"Aries..." I finally managed to say his name after a full minute of staring at each other. There are some changes in his face. His eyes were swollen with dark circles. He doesn't appear to be getting any restful sleep. He also lost some weight. What happened to him while I was away?"Can we talk?" he requested. Someone coughed behind me, and I turned around.It was our boss. "Can it be later? The line is long, and we're running low on employees," she asked, raising an eyebrow. I peered around Aries' back and saw about five students waiting patiently. When I noticed one of them secretly photographing Aries' back, I frowned. Others simply show their phone, which has the name from their Facebook account on it.My head shook."M-maybe later? We're busy right now," and I even stuttered. That's downright embarrassing!He nodded and went in search of a table.
"It's already lunchtime; let's take a break and return in an hour," I said. They all stood up and made their way to the exit. It was already 12:30 p.m., so I let them eat first before moving on to the next item on the agenda."Come on, Aries! Let's have lunch at your hotel! I heard your restaurant's desserts are delicious!" Keegan exclaimed."Yeah, dude! Come on!" Ynigo even helped me to my feet. I sighed and began to gather my belongings. I looked at Beatrice, who was both my cousin and my secretary. She was also about to leave when I called."Do you want to come with us?" I queried.Her only response was a sigh and a roll of eyes. "With these kids? No way in hell! My ears can't stand the noise they make! I might not be able to digest my food properly based on the looks on their faces!" she hissed, glaring at the two men behind me. She is, however, correct. These two are
"Are you really sure you want to do this?" Gio asked me. We've arrived at the airport. Malcolm and Aries' friends drove us. Caleb, on the other hand, promised to pay a visit once a month.I bid my housemates farewell last night. We were all sobbing in the kitchen, where we used to get together and talk. "Ma'am, are you coming back?" Rosa asked, her voice breaking.My head shook. "I don't know ..." I replied while sobbing. It also hurts so much that I have to leave them here. I learned to love them. They treated me as if I were a member of their family."Will you be happy when you leave?" Tess wondered aloud.I gave a nod. She wiped her tears away before nodding. "If that's what makes you happy, I'll be there too; just don't hurt yourself again, don't do this again," she said as she stroked my injured hand."Yes... Thank you for everything... For taking

"Rosa, has Aries called yet?" I wondered out loud when I awoke.The maid simply shook her head and began preparing food for me. I have no appetite because I just feel sick. My head is slightly spinning so I closed my eyes for a while."Ma'am, are you okay?" she inquired as he placed the glass of milk on the table. I just nodded and closed my eyes. Before entering the kitchen, I heard her sigh.I closed my eyes as I heard Gio's footsteps behind me. "Good morning, Gov," I said as I closed my eyes."Are you okay?" The familiar baritone voice jolted me awake. It wasn't Gio! It was Aries!I sat up and began eating. I moved a little when I noticed him sitting next to me. Gio's footsteps entered the kitchen. "Good morning, Mrs. Higgins," he said. He was taken aback to see Aries standing next to me."Are you also here, Mr. Higgins? I thoug
He drew me into his room as I was about to enter the guest room. "You can't stay in my room, Angel," he said to me as he dragged me inside. He slammed the door shut, not allowing her to say anything. Then he turned to face me.I turned away from him and went to bed. I ignored him, but he simply sighed and walked to his table near the window, where he began typing. I sighed and fell asleep. I was simply exhausted after being entertained by ninja turtles.From now on, I'll refer to Keegan, Ynigo, Gio, and Link as Ninja Turtles.I was surprised to see five of them at the dinner table the next day. "Oh, don't you have houses?" I wondered aloud.There was a heaviness in the air that pervaded the entire dining room. When we heard a voice, they all grunted. It was so piercing that even I frowned.Who's that?A woman in a nightgown walked in. I remember
"What have you been up to?" When I walked into the chapel, Aries was concerned. He appeared worried, but not because I was lost. I can sense it. He was simply checking to make sure I didn't go to the garden.However, he was unlucky. I went to the garden and looked around. She's back, isn't she? What is he going to do? Will he terminate the contract? Will he take the child away from me?Unknown fear began to infiltrate my being... If he ever did that to me, I would despise him. "Answer me, Nola? Where have you been? Did you see anything?" He asked a series of questions, and I confirmed it there. He wasn't just concerned about me; he was also concerned about what I might see outside.Although my mind was in disarray, I maintained a calm demeanor. "No, I just went for a walk there," I said, pointing to the opposite side of the chapel. The garden's opposite side. I could hear him sigh with relief.
