It wasn't an easy decision, but he had to do it. Owen Sebastian Gonzales had undergone many dangerous missions but none of them required him to fake his death. He has no choice though, because doing it would be the only way to save Henzel Artemis Flores—his longtime girlfriend. He had to watch her mourn for his “death” before he was sent out of the country with a new identity to do overseas missions for the mean time. Years later, he comes back as Aiden Clifford Williams, the greatest spy of his generation and ready to do missions in his home country again. He gets the shock of his life when the profile of the next target given to him holds the same face with the woman, he had fooled years ago—his ex, Artemis. They’re not allowed to ask about why their target needs to be eliminated, they just have to accept what is given, build a plan and then kill. And so, with a reluctant heart, he goes to clear his mission or he’ll be the one to face the consequence—death, for a failed mission. But what happens when in the middle of many attempts, he discovers something about her? What happens when the girl he thought he knew all those years ago also holds secret as deep as his own? What happens when the target he's supposed to kill turns out to be a mother, most specifically, the mother of his child he never even knew existed?

Everything seemed to stop. For the first time in years, his breath hitched as he pointed his gun at his target. Hindi, hindi siya kinakabahan. Malayo sa kaba ang nararamdaman niya ngayon.   The living room where they are currently in is dark, ang tanging ilaw na nagbibigay ng liwanag sa kanila ay ang poste ng ilaw na direktang nakatayo malapit sa bintana ng sala ng maliit na bahay. Aiden’s eyes slowly trailed from his target’s eyes to the gun she is currently pointing back at him. Ano ang ibig sabihin nito? His eyes met her gaze once again. They are sharing the same wide-eyed look, both surprised at the turn of events. Ano ang nangyayari?   The room felt heavy. Ang tanging tunog na naririnig ni Aiden ay ang ang malakas tibok ng kanyang puso. Gulong-gulo siya. Paano nangyari ito?   Ang isip niya ay bahagyang lumipad pabalik sa planong inilatag niya sa kanyang utak. Pulido ito. Ilang ulit niya itong nirebisa upang masigura

9:32:02 p.m: Manila, PhilippinesAiden removed the sunglasses he's wearing before checking the time on his wrist watch. It's already 8 pm and he can already feel the fatigue from the 14-hour long flight seeping in his bones. Nakaupo siya ngayon sa isa sa mga café na matatagpuan sa airport. The service his agency got for him got delayed kaya naman naisipan niya munang maupo.His phone lit up from a message notification just as the barista called his name. He stood up to collect his order while opening his phone to check his message."Arriving in ten," the text said.Kinuha niya ang kanyang order mula sa counter at saka bumalik sa kanyang lamesa upang kunin ang maleta at iba pang mga gamit niya. Sampung minuto na

The first thing he registered when he finally came to his senses was the sterile scent in the room. And he immediately wanted to groan. Fuck. The second thing was when he opened his eyes and saw the familiar white walls. Too white for his liking. He has never felt the biggest urge to run away since.He is not in a hospital, he knows. Well, it is a hospital, but not a typical one. It's more of a clinic. Ang agency mismo ang nagmamay-ari nito. It's for emergency situations like this. Kapag masyadong kahina-hinala ang pinsala na tinao nila na maaaring magdulot ng suspetya sa normal na hospital.He forced his eyes to open, getting blinded by the too bright light above him. Narinig niya ang tunog ng sapatos ng kung sinumang kasama niya sa kwarto. His eyes slowly gained focus and his eyes met the face of his best friend. He had never groaned

The brown envelope made a smacking noise as it collided with the huge mahogany desk of Mr. Suarez, their Top Commander here in the Philippine headquarters. Aiden met the man’s eyes, his gaze burning with anger. “What’s this?” Aiden quite literally spat out. Ang tingin ni Mr. Suarez ay nanatiling kalmado, ang kaliwang kilay niya ay bahagyang tumaas. “Hello to you too, Mr. Williams,” the man replied sarcastically. Eyes never straying from Aiden’s.Huminga nang malalim si Aiden upang maikalma ang sarili, pinapaalalahanan na superior niya pa rin ang kanyang kaharap. He limped his way to the man’s desk. “Have you recovered yet? Hindi ba’t kahapon ka lamang nasaksak?” tanong nito habang ang mata ay nakatingin sa kanyang kanang hita na may balot na benda sa ilalim ng kanyang suot na jogging pants. Aiden disregarded his ques

Aiden was quick to school the expression of shock on his face into a blank one. “Hey, you still there?” tanong ni Klyden mula sa kabilang linya. Aiden averted his gaze from Artemis. Kumuha siya ng ilan pang sitsirya at inilagay ito sa cart niya bago ito muling itinulak. He fixed his hold on his phone. He can feel his hands shaking for some reason. Is he nervous? Embarrassed? Flustered? Guilty? As he pushed his cart past her, their eyes met once again. Nanikip ang kanyang dibdib sa ekspresyon ni Artemis. She looks so confused. He willed himself to keep it cool. Aiden gave her a small smile, her eyes widened for a fraction before giving a small smile too, immediately averting her gaze after. He reached the next aisle still feeling dazed. Ang maliit na interaksyon ay paulit-ulit na naglalaro sa kanyang utak. Sa maikling sandali ay tumatak agad sa kanya ang lahat. Her dark brown hair, she used to have it long, no

His eyes burned holes at the envelope on top of his work desk. Halos isang oras niya na itong tinititigan, hindi malaman ang kaniyang gagawin dito. He sighed for the nth time in the past hour, mabilis siyang kumurap nang maramdaman ang panunuyo ng kanyang mata. He raised his hands to rub his eyes, groaning as he did so.   This has been his routine for almost a week now. As if staring at the envelope would suddenly answer his questions. He really wants to know why, ano ba ang ginawa ni Artemis sa mga nagdaang taon upang masama sa ganitong business ang kanyang pangalan. Artemis, despite being a really sweet girl is firm and opinionated. Alam niyang ipaglaban ang sarili niya. Did she accidentally anger someone with her opinionated nature again? He suddenly remembers that one time they had a date and intended to watch a movie but ended up in the mall security office.   - Aiden reached out to put his hands on Artemis’ tense shoulders.

The third time they met, believe it or not, was purely on accident. Apat na araw na ang nakakaraan mula nang magkita sila sa hospital, pinadalhan siyang muli ng kanyang agency ng lokasyon, as expected, but after hours of waiting, she didn’t show up. He went home feeling a mixture of disappointment and relief that day. Disappointed that it delayed the progress of his mission, at the same time relieved for the same reason. He was jogging around the small village, a habit he formed every time he’s injured so he would heal faster, when he accidentally saw her walking out of her house. They were both shocked at the sight of each other. “Oh,” ani nito.“Ikaw ulit.” Huminto siya sa labas ng bahay nito, eyes focused on her. “I didn’t know you live here,” he said. That’s partly a lie, he kind of deduced she lived somewhere near the area if his a

He stood behind the cash register, preparing for the rush hour. Sa gilid niya nakatayo si Evelyn, ang in-charge sa counter, aalalayan siya nito ngayon na mag-asikaso. Ikatlong araw na ng pormal na pagtatrabaho niya rito at maayos naman ang nagiging takbo nito. He is yet to make a move, kailangan niya munang masiguro na hindi magiging kahina-hinala ang bawa’t galaw niya. Artemis is currently cleaning tables; it seems to be her duty around the café. He tracked her every move, eyes following every movement. “Magkakilala po kayo?” he heard Evelyn ask, it’s the first time she directly talked to him since his first duty. Naputol ang pagtingin niya kay Artemis nang bumaling siya rito. Bahagya niya lamang itong nilingon. She’s a petite girl, pretty eyes hidden behind big glasses, small nose and thin lips. Her head is the same level as his shoulders, kaya naman kinailangan niya pang yumuko nang bahagya.&nb

Sa tagal ng taon na iginugol ni Aiden sa pag-eensayo at pagtatrabaho bilang isang agent, ito na yata ang pinakamaraming beses na nadala siya sa ospital o kahit clinic man lang, sa loob ng isang buwan. He works quietly, was trained for even the most extreme of extreme situations. Kaya naman talagang nakakagulat na sa loob lamang ng isang buwan ay dalawang beses na agad siyang nadadala sa ospital. Kahit sa pinakamahirap na mga misyon niya ay hindi inaabot ng ganito. Makakatamo siya ng mga sugat, ngunit hindi sapat para umabot pa rito.   The next time he opened his eyes, he saw the white ceiling and his first thought was the agency, and he immediately closed them again. He internally groaned. His senses slowly came back, with a massive throbbing at the back of his head at that. He’s hearing hushed whispers from somewhere in the room, at kahit na alam niyang mahina ang kanilang boses, nakadagdag pa rin ito sa sakit ng kaniyang ulo. He groaned loudly this time.
