Makalipas ang 3 araw ay nagpaalam na si Taylor sa kanila dahil gusto na nyang sumilang ayusin ang relasyon nya kay Chi.

"Taylor. Thank you sa lahat ng tulong mo sa amin."

"Ano ka ba. Wala yon, saka malaki ang binayad sakin ni Attorney. Masaya ako para sa inyo at ngayon, babalik na ako para ayusin ang sa amin ni Chi."

"Thanks, Taylor. Till next time." Paalam ni Dallas sa kanya.

Nang makapasok na sa airport si Dallas ay umalis na sila Mazee at si Dallas ang nag drive.

"Dallas, there's something I should tell you before we visit my family." Seryoso si Mazee at kinakabahan sa posibleng maging reaksyon ni Dallas.

"Alright. Let's stop on that cafe." Sabi ni Dallas at pinark ang kotse. Umorder lang sila ng kape at naupo na.

"I dont know how to start but.. I think it is best that you would know one of the reasons I don't want to go back and visit my family." Panimula ni Mazee.

"Let me ask you first, Babe. Have you forgiven them?"

"I think I did.." mahina nyang sagot. "I may not forget, but the resentment had vanished when my dad tried to get that bullet. I guess, he still loves me and regrets everything."

"Your father was just desperate. I was also at fault for running away. I was immature by that time as well.."

"What do you mean?" Takang tanong ni Mazee.

"It was about that guy named, Matthias."

Nanlaki ang mata ni Mazee sa narinig.

"You knew?"

"Your father told me when we were working about the hearing. He regrets eveything. Just like us, he was im agony. If only I was strong enough that time.. if only I did not run.." hinawakan ni Mazee ang kamay ni Dallas.

"It was not your fault. No one wants all of these at all. I will make it up to you as well. "

"It should be me, babe." Ngiting sagot ni Dallas. "By the way, that guy is in jail for fraud. I know you wouldn't want to open against attempted rape, but I took care of everything. They messed with the wrong people. And, that woman too, Claire. She is also in jail."

Nagulat si Mazee dahil di sya makapaniwala na nagawa ni Dallas mapakulong ang mga taonb muntik na syang magahasa. Hindi pumayag si Dallas na di mabigyan ng hustisya ang nangyari kay Mazee.

" You always amaze me. " bulalas ni Mazee at para din syang nabunutan ng tinik dahil sa dalawang nangyari na yon ay nabigyan sya ng hustisya.

"You ready yo visit your family now?" Tanong ni Dallas.

"Yes." Nakangiti nyang sagot.

Sumakay na sila ngkotse at si Dallas na uli ang nag drive. Nang pumarada na sila ss gilid ng kalsada ay napansin nila ni Mazee ang isang kasiyahan sa bahay nila. Ngumiti si Dallas sa kanya.

"We are here." Bumaba sila ng sasakyan at agad silang sinalubong ng kuya ni Mazee at ng kanyabg ate Merlana.

"Atty. I am glad you made it." Masayang sabi ng kuya Philip ni Mazee. "Namiss kita, zee." At niyakap sya ng kuya nya. "Salamat sa tulong nyong dalawa ni bayaw."

"Huh?" Takang tanong ni Mazee sa kuya pero ngumiti lang ito.

"Tara pasok na tayo." Aya naman ng ate Merlana ni Mazee. Hinawakan ni Dallas ang kamay ni Mazee at sumunod sila sa kuya at ate ni Mazee.

"Andito na pala ang anak at gwapo kong manugang na abogado." Masayang salubong ng tatay ni Mazee.

"Thanks, Sir. Im happy that you look better now." Sagot ni Dallas na kinataka ni Mazee. "I brough your daugther with me this time." Marahang hinila ni Dallas si Mazee papunta sa harap.
