Chapter One

*blag*

basag ang Iphone na kabibili ko lang kaninang umaga. padabog akong umupo sa sofa ng bahay ko sa New York.

they are starting to manipulate my life again! stupid paparazzis wete everywhere and i cant get out of the house without being ambush! Just Damn it! two days na kong di nakakalabas sa bahay.

napahilamos ako sa muka ko sa sobrang inis sa kanila! sa Kanilang lahat lalong lalo na kay Lance!

bwisit talaga!

at mas nabwibwisit ako kapag naaalala ko yung pag uusap namin ni Lolo kanina!

i received a phone call from the high and mighty Don Enrico and it didnt went very well.

"you've been playing long enough my dear nieta." Don Enrico's voice was cold and sarcastic.

"like duh! new york is not a playground. I'm not just playing around here Old man. i'm working my ass off just to survive." matabang na sabi ko saka umirap sa kawalan.

nagmumura ako sa isip sa sobrang bwisit sa pamilya ko. after five years ngayon lang may tawag na galing sa kanila ganyan pa ibubungad.

damn the old man and his stupid standards!

modelling and walking on the runway is not a Job for the Great Don Enrico Fortalejo. same with the Business Shark Ricardo Fortalejo, my dad. as to why Don Enrico refers modelling as a game. 

but not for me. coz i've been working for five years without using their stupid name and their connection. so definitely. i'm not playing around.

"You've been roaming around like a single woman. Flirting around in all corners of New York. you're no longer single my dear let me remind you that." the old man's voice was calm but i should know better. that tone is very dangerous.

"how can i ever forget thanks to you and your stupid empire, i'm trapped in a loveless marriage.." i said sarcastically. banas eh! dahil sanay na sanay sila na ang bawat salita nila ay batas. ganyan na sila! bwisit talaga.

"you've gone to far" mariing sabi niya. nainis na siguro.

"And i dont care!" i answered with the same intensity.

"well. sorry dear. i do care. you're carrying my name. at hindi ko papayagan na dungisan mo ang pangalan ko. no more scandals dear. no more."

"what are you gonna do? use your connections? i have my own money now old man. i am a billionaire. freeze my account?! you cant do that. coz i opened that account." take that you Old Hag! maybe he thought i'll go begging on my knees when i lose all my money. i wont. mayaman man o.mahirap hindi ako uuwi.

 
"on the contrary dear. i am dragging you home."

huh? WHAAAAAAAT?!

"you cant do that. i'm in a legal age now." mariing sabi ko pero nagdadalawang isip na ko. i know him. i know my family. they'll do everything just to get what they want.

"wanna take a bet, Nieta? well maybe its about time we tell everybody your Full name and your civil status eh?" i gritted my teeth angrily. ramdam ko yung panginginig ng kalamnan ko sa sobrang galit. i dont want anyone to know how i am related to the fortalejos or the cervantes. i hate those forsaken names!

"you cant do that!" pasigaw na sabi ko.

"of course i can. i can and i will." tumawa sya ng mahina.
