Still in Z's POV
"This is a stupid joke."
Last night after sabihin sakin ni Mr. Matthews ang agreement nila ni Dad, I barged in here at the Mansion first thing in the morning.
Mukhang hindi naman nabigla ang magaling kong ama sa pagsugod ko. He must have known it earlier kaya lalo pang nadagdagan ang inis ko.
"Listen to me---"
"No, you listen to me! I'm not going to marry anyone. You don't have anything to hold against me. I don't care about my inheritance or what I will get from you because I already built my own empire---"
"ZEUS VENSON TYRELL!!! YOU DO NOT SPEAK TO ME LIKE THAT, YOUNG MAN!"
He silenced me with that tone.
Umalingawngaw sa buong study room ang boses na 'yon ni Leonardo Tyrell. He seldom uses that thunder-like tone to me but when he does, you know that the whole talking is pretty serious.
But I don't care, and I don't care about that damned agreement with Mr. Matthews. Wala silang karapatan para itulak ako sa isang bagay na ayokong gawin, no matter how important this is to anyone.
"You have to listen to what I'm going to say before you loose that temper of yours. I already had it from your mother, I certainly do not need it from you." very firm na sabi niya habang nakaupo sa kanyang personal desk.
"How could you possibly say that? I'm the one who's being grilled here!" sagot ko habang nakatayo at palakad-lakad sa harapan niya mismo.
Hindi ko mapigilan ang pag-burst ng rage sa buong sistema ko.
"I'll explain everything to you if you just sit down." casual na sabi ni Dad
"I don't want to hear it."
"Do you think that this is just all about you? I gave my word to him and we Tyrells never smudge our palabra de honor."
Palabra de honor.
The Tyrell Clan give a great deal about keeping promises and it will give shame to the family name kung ang isang Tyrell ay hindi tumupad sa pangako ninuman.
THIS IS THE 20th CENTURY, FOR PETE'S SAKE!
Wala nang taong tumutupad sa kahit na anong usapan ngayon!
"You made an agreement, Dad. I didn't. YOU GAVE YOUR WORD TO THAT MAN, I DIDN'T GIVE MINE."
"What do you want me to do then? Send Robert back to the States? He's not an enemy, son, and I'm pretty sure that I'm not your enemy either."
I raised my brows. I respect my father pero sa pagkakataong ito, it seems like I can't spare him that right at the moment.
"Oh really? Anong tawag mo sa situation natin ngayon, Dad?"
"Why do you think that your mother and I always arrange a dinner gathering every Saturday for you to meet a girl?"
"You tell me. I'm so sick of your games!" galit paring sagot ko
Hindi naman natinag ang nakatatandang Tyrell.
"It's to prevent you from that stupid agreement, and might as well save my face in any attempt of breaking off the agreement. But to our disappointment, it never worked out for you. Hindi ko alam kung ano ang hinahanap mo but we had this idea dahil sinabi ko na noon kay Robert na kapag may nobya ka sa oras na hanapin ka niya ay kalimutan na niya ang kasunduan namin."
