It was a traditional church with wooden pews on each side of the aisle but because of this special occasion. They covered the entrance and down the aisle with vines and festive candles lighting the way to their future. Their chosen flower arrangement group elegantly designed the inside of a church. They created an arc at the entrance with mixed chrysanthemums and pink and white roses. People and media groups who got invited to the wedding of the century gathered inside the church.The media groups were busy preparing their camera at the back, following the other guests invited to the wedding. The wedding coordinator talked to the entourage about their position as they walked down the aisle later. Jacob fell asleep in the chair while Geneva took care of him. Next to Geneva were Anastacia and David. David was constantly blowing his breath while rubbing his hands on his knees. The groom must have been feeling anxious because of his wedding.“Are you all right?” Anastasia asked.“I don’t
‘Where am I?’ She wondered.After a while, his stomach suddenly started to boil. Only then did he remember that he had not eaten lunch and had only eaten biscuits in the morning. His throat was also parched with thirst. In addition to that, Mariane is no longer comfortable in the gown she is wearing because apart from being heavy, she is also starting to itch and the fabric is sagging around her chest.Mariane tried to feel the surroundings while she tapped her foot to figure out if the floor was cement, wood, or on a road. Mariane tried to turn around the post but then she suddenly felt nervous as her heart stops from breathing when she tapped her foot and could feel nothing.‘Why is there no floor? Did they hang me up?” she wondered.Trembling Mariane, makes Stacey chuckle. Mariane becomes alert upon hearing the voice of a laughing woman. Just seeing her rival struggling makes Stacey happy.“Hmm!!! (Who are you?!)” Mariane hummed as she couldn’t speak properly.From giggling, Stacey
If you wish to find your beloved lover alive, you better look for her now. Finder’s keepers, baby.“Who the hell send this message to you?!” Kim asked exasperatingly.After David received those cryptic messages from an unknown number, he immediately contacted Anastacia, Geneva, Kim, and John. But since Anastacia needs to take care of her husband, Diego, Anastacia needs to stay with him. So, to get her involved in the conversation, David called her and put the phone into a speaker phone.“I don’t know yet. But I have my investigator investigate the photo. Let’s wait for his call.”“Do you know where to find her now, son?” Geneva asked worriedly. “If you do so, don’t worry about Jacob. I will take good care of him,” she added.“I’m still waiting for the investigator’s report. Once we find out her location, we will immediately rescue her.”“I want to come!” Kim volunteered.“Are you nuts? What if something happened to you? Dr. Smith will kill me.” Mark butted in, which made Kim roll her
‘She’s pregnant,’ David kept on thinking about what the doctor had just said. And he couldn’t help but worry about Mariane’s condition as well.‘I should have known in the beginning. So, I could protect them.’ Suddenly, he remembered what Stacey did to Mariane.‘Stacey, you will pay for what you did.’ he thought.His grip on the steering wheel tightened as images of Stacey smirking at him appeared in his thoughts. David stepped on the gas to accelerate his speed. He was on his way to the abandoned building where they found Mariane. As soon as he arrived at the building, John immediately welcomed him.He remembered after knowing that Mariane was pregnant, he immediately called John to stop torturing Stacey. Because he wanted to do the punishment by himself.“Where is she?” David asked.“She’s on the top floor, Sir. Like what you said, we did what she does to Madam.” John informed him.“That’s good. You can have your rest. I can take it from here.”“But, Sir.-”“It’s alright. I’m okay.
“Am I pregnant?!”David frowned at Mariane’s reaction.“Why do you look surprised? Didn’t you know?”David looked at her in the eye trying to figure out if Mariane was telling the truth about her not knowing their pregnant. But Mariane couldn’t stand to lie to him. She bit her lower lip and winced.“I was about to tell you after our wedding as my wedding gift, but it seems like you knew about it now.” Mariane pouted disappointedly.David sighed. “Love, you don’t have to be disappointed. Don’t worry. I will act like I never knew about your pregnancy.” David smiled while trying to comfort his wife.“By the way, who else knew about this matter?” she asked, alarmed.“I haven’t told anyone yet, except for Stacey.”“Oh,” Mariane suddenly felt sad and frightened upon mentioning the name of the person who cause her wounds in the cheek.David held her hand. “Don’t worry about her. She said sorry and will turn herself in at the police station. I also called some reporters to clear out your name
It was dark and pouring outside when Marianne arrived at the street near their house, and she was soaking wet. Mariane noticed from the outside that they didn’t have light. At first, she thought it was just a blackout, but as she went through other houses, only theirs had no lights, which made her sigh exasperatingly.‘Oh, God. Our electricity has been cut out again. Maybe mom did not pay the bills.’ Mariane slowly opened the door entrance, afraid she might wake them up. Mariane got surprised when she saw her mother, Anastacia Ramos, holding a cupcake she bought from the mini grocery in front of their house. She chuckled when she saw the candle they always use when they don't have electricity. Anastacia put the candle on top of the cupcake and almost smashed it because it was huge enough for the cupcake.“Oh, alright… I’ll just hold it.” Anastacia chuckled. “Come here, baby. Make a wish and blow your candle.” Her mom smiled at her.She closed her eyes to make a wish. “I wish to have
“W-what are you talking about?” Anastacia butted in. Tears pooled down on her face as she grabbed the knife from Mariane, who was still stunned. She went forward and pulled her daughter into her back. “M-my daughter… she’s not a thing that you’ll just get whenever you want. My daughter is not her father’s collateral!!! Do you understand that?!” Anastacia exclaimed, as her breathing became heavy with anger. Her hands were shaking, but she still pointed the knife toward the uninvited visitor. “You better go now before I stab this knife directly in your heart.” Gritting her teeth, Anastacia warned them. David raised his hands, surrendering. “Look here, Mrs. Ramos… I came here to inform you just for formality. But this agreement has been sealed. If you want to argue with this matter, you can talk to my lawyer. This agreement is legal and with the consent of both parties.” David explained calmly. “Parties? That’s nonsense! But what about my daughter? She should include in this agreemen
‘In my 21 years living in this world... I never thought that my life was like a movie. There are so many unexpected plot twists. And there are untold truths, and it gradually revealing.’ Mariane snorted at her thought.‘I should have written my story. Maybe there’s a chance that directors will notice it, and probably they will film my life.’ She wiped her face out of her frustration and groaned.After hearing the truth about her identity from Anastacia, Mariane ran away from their house and went to the convenience store. She bought a soju and stayed outside the convenience store where there was a table with an umbrella where you could sit and eat.Mariane needed some time to process the things she found out today. And now she completely understood why Diego didn’t look her in the eyes. And he was treating her coldly. Now Mariane was confused about what she should feel for Diego. Will she despise him? Or grateful? Or will she pity him? But maybe she'll feel the latter. It wasn't easy t
