Clarence's POV

When I arrived into dad's office hindi lang si dad ang tao dito sa office niya. I don't know why, but there are people here that are so close to me.

Dad's voice is not alright a while ago, pero ayoko ng sabihin 'yon kay Kath. Alam kong may hindi magandang sasabihin si dad, and I'd never expect that, this is what he called for. I thought this is just for business, hindi pala.

"C-Clarence..."

As she said my name, I just realize that I have no feelings left for her. Bakit siya andito? Anong kailangan niya? I know making trouble is not her thing, and I know she is happy now with her husband.

"Patrick, you are a father now."

When dad said that, halos manlaki ang mga mata ko. What the f*ck anong father?! Kailan pa ako naging ama?! Last time I checked the women I had sex with, they were all in pills or I used condom in having sex with them.

"Aian is your child Clarence."

Aian is my c-child?

What? Diba anak niya 'yon kay Chester? Paanong ako yung magiging tatay nun?!

Ayaw magsink-in sa utak ko ang sinasabi ni Mika. She can't lie alam ko, kilalang-kilala ko siya. Hindi siya yung taong makakapagsinungaling, pero this time sana nagsisinungaling siya. Di ko matanggap yung sinasabi niya.

"It can't be."

Napaupo ako sa couch na katapat nila dad. Nanghihina yung tuhod ko, paano kasi nangyari 'yon?!

"How did it happen?! Diba, you are living with Chester?! Then why are you here, and worse you are telling me this f*ck*ng lies!"

Tumingin sa'kin si dad, at si tita(mother ni Mika).

"Mika told us everything. When Aian needs a blood donor, she and Chester didn't match. They tried to repeat, but they end up on having the same answer. We had a DNA test, and he is your son."

Sabi ni dad.

Sh*t. No! I want a DNA test again.

"I want a DNA test again! Gusto kong makita mismo kung anong magiging resulta."

Nagpatawag ng ilang laboratory personnel, at kinuhaan kami pareho ng dugo nung bata.

Mika is just looking at me. F*ck, ano bang mangyayari kung anak ko nga siya?! Pwede naman silang mabuhay ng tahimik! I will still support him.

"Tito, may I have a word with Clarence."

Dad just nod. Tumayo si Mika, at hinila ako palabas ng office ni dad.

"Wala kaming habol sa'yo ni Aian. I just want him to know who is his father! T*ng *n* kasi Clarence, hindi ko alam sa sarili ko kung bakit ngayon ko lang sinabi na ikaw ang ama ni Aian. Chester didn't know it too, pero nung malaman niya, he had filed a divorce. Kung alam ko lang na mangayayari 'to edi sana I'd never been inlove with you!"

Kung ganoon lang. Then it's fine with me, wala naman palang habol sa akin eh.

"Then, there is no problem with that. I will live my life, and you will live yours with my child kung akin nga. Mika, I am going to marry Kath, and I love her. Sana naman wag na niya 'tong malaman, and sana wala ng makaalam na ibang tao."

*PAAAAAAAAAAAK!*

"ANG G*G* MO CLARENCE! YOU ARE SO SELFISH! Aian needs a father. I and Chester are divorced now. Alam mo kung bakit kami naghiwalay? Kasi gusto namin pareho na makilala ni Aian yung totoo niyang tatay, gusto namin pareho na maging masaya na kami, at gusto namin pareho na kumawala na sa kasinungalingan na hindi naman talaga kami nagmamahalan!"

"She had heard enough."-She almost whispered this phrase, kaya di ko naintindihan.

Umiiyak na si Mika ngayon. Naaalala ko yung mga panahong iiwan niya na ako, ganoon din yung iyak niya ngayon. Ayokong makita kasi feeling ko nasasaktan din ako.

Selfish na ba akong tao? Ang gusto ko lang maikasal kami ni Kathleen, magkaroon ng pamilya, at maging masaya habambuhay.

"Is this being selfish? Mika, sabihin mo 'yan sa sarili mo! D*mn it! Si Aian ba talaga ang dahilan ng pagbalik mo at pakikipaghiwalay kay Chester?! Tell me!"

She wiped away her tears.

"Tama ka. You are so smart. Si Aian nga ba ang dahilan ng lahat, o dahilan ko lang siya para bumalik ka sa'kin? Clarence...wala ka pa ring pinagbabago. You still amaze me."

Hindi siya si Mika. N-no, it can't be. Anong nangyari kay Mika?! Hindi 'to pwede.

Ibang-iba yung tono ng pagsasalita niya, and Mika can't do that!

"Y-you are not Mika..."

She caressed my face.

"You know, when the DNA test result is positive, we'll be married. Sinabi 'yon ng dad mo. Hahahahaha. I am so excited baby."

Pumasok siya sa loob ng office ni dad, at saka ako naiwan sa labas. What if akin nga si Aian? What am I going to do? We are getting married? How's that?!

I don't want to hear anything about it. Gusto ko na lang umuwi, at makita si Kathleen.

Lumabas ako ng building, at sumakay agad sa kotse ko. Hindi ko napigilan ang inis ko habang nasa loob ako.

This is so f*ck*ng irritating! P*t*! Bobo kasi ako. Anong sasabihin ko kay Kathleen ngayon?

Nagmadali akong pumasok sa unit, pero nang dumating ako she had already packed her things.

"Teka, saan ka pupunta? May photoshoot ka?"

Nagkunwari akong maganda ang tono ko. Hindi ko talaga alam kung saan siya pupunta, minsan naman kasi may photoshoot siya sa beaches or resorts.

"Be a good father to him."

P-paano niya nalaman?!

"A-ano bang sinasabi mo Kath. Saka saan ka ba pupunta? I will cook some dinner for us, put down your things."

Hinawakan ko yung gamit niya, pero bigla siyang nagpumiglas.

"She called me a while ago, and I just hear your voices. Clarence, I grew up without a father and mother by my side. Tita ko lang ang nag-alaga sa'kin, and that's so hard. When I was a kid, lagi akong tinutukso ng mga kalaro ko na wala raw akong mama at papa, and I don't want your child to experience that."

This time lumuhod ako sa harapan niya, pero yung pagluhod ko ngayon hindi kagaya nung pagluhod ko kanina nung nagpropose ako sa kanya.

Pareho na ring tumutulo ang mga luha namin, pero yung mga luhang hindi dahil sa saya.

"No, Kath! Diba, magpapakasal pa tayo? Diba, magkakaroon pa tayo ng pamilya?! I CAN BE HIS FATHER, AND I CAN BE YOUR HUSBAND AT THE SAME TIME! YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU!"

Sumasakit yung dibdib ko sa mga nangyayari, kanina ansaya-saya naming dalawa pero pagkatapos noon, ganito naman?

She is about to walk ng yakapin ko yung legs niya. No! Hindi pwede!

"CLARENCE! TAMA NA, WAG NA NATING IPAGPILITAN...TANGGAPIN NA NATIN NA HINDI TAYO PARA SA ISA'T-ISA. WALA NA TAYONG MAGAGAWA CLARENCE! MAS MASASAKTAN LANG TAYO, AT MAKAKASAKIT NG IBANG TAO!"

Mas lalo kong hinigpitan ang pagkakayakap sa binti niya. We are crying so hard.

"You said you love me! AT DAHIL LANG SA MAY ANAK AKO, YOU WILL LEAVE ME ALREADY?! MAHAL NA MAHAL KITA KATH! PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME...Please..."

Pinilit niyang tanggalin ang mga kamay ko, parang nanghina ako kasi siya na yung mismong bumibitaw sa'kin. Ako na lang yung nakakapit eh.

"This ring give it to Mika, she deserves it. Mas kailangan ka ng anak mo...kesa sa'kin."

She left the ring.

Bigla siyang lumabas ng unit ko. Pagkasara niya nung pinto, I bursted out. I heard her sobs, kahit may pintong pagitan sa aming dalawa. Hearing her sobs made me cry like a river.
