pagdating sa bahay inunahan ko sya ng baba. dumiretso ako papasok ng bahay. paakyat na sana ko when Lance grabbed my arms.
the hell! muntik pa kong matumba.
"di pa tayo tapos mag usap wife."he said firmly
"pagod ako Lance. kung ano man yang kinagagalit mo. we can talk about that tomorrow. dont wanna talk tonight" i said calmly.
"hinde! ngayon tayo mag uusap!"
hinarap ko sya at tinanggal yung kamay nya sa braso ko.
"anu bang problema mo ha Lance?! why dont you just stay from me?! di kita kailangan!"
"ikaw! ikaw yung problema ko! anung kalokohan ang pumasok sa isip mo nung sumayaw ka ng ganun? muntik ka na dun ah!" galit na sabi pa niya.
"anu bang pakialam mo Lance?"
"Malaki! from now on. wala ka na ring credit cards. kung may kailangan ka. hihingi ka saken. maliwanag?"
"i dont need your money dear. i have my own."
"and i have your passbooks and your atm. credit cards. debit cards. name it. nasakin lahat yun. nandito sa loob nito" sabay taas ng clutch bag ko. damnit!
"Damn you Lance! damn you to hell! stop meddling with my life. mind your own business!" i hissed at him. he's really getting into my nerves. i mean really.
"Damn right! i'm minding my business. you are my business!" Lance said with the same intensity.
"damn you! you dont have any right to tell me what to do!"Anu bang pakialam nya sa buhay ko pa? lagi nalang kinocontrol yung bahay ko.
biglang nag bago ang expression nya. naging malumanay.
"no Love, of course i can tell you what to do. you can try turning the world upside down. but the fact still remains. i'm still your husband."then he smirked.
Love? damn it!
he used to call me Love.
and i hate it!
i hate hearing it!
"yeah. technically yes. but this marriage ended five years ago Honey. five years ago. kaya wala kang pakialam kung landiin ko man lahat ng lalaki sa Mundo."
napatiim bagang sya.
"you're such a flirt!" he said harshly
i slapped him really hard. i know it hurts.
but that was nothing.
nothing compared to what i am feeling right now.
nagbago bigla yung expression nya. he tried reaching out to me. pero nilagay ko yung kamay ko sa harap namin. signalling him to stop
i can feel anytime na iiyak na ko.
how dare him call me a flirt?!
i showed him my emotionless face. as i said what i need to say in a cold voice.
"coming from a guy who broke his marriage for another woman huh?" i gave him my coldest stare and continued
"what is it to you Lance? what is it to you if i go on a date with every Man in town?"
"wala kang pakialam kahit anung gawin ko sa buhay ko Lance. i can be a flirt. i can go anywhere. i can be anywhere i want to be. and i can be with anyone i want to be. at wala kang pakialam dun. i'm not gonna do anything to make this stupid marriage work. not now. not in this lifetime. not anymore. you can work on this alone. coz i already gave you more than my fair share of everything. i've been a good wife. a good friend. a good partner. a good everything. and that was the end of it. you'll get none of that from me from now on. never again" tumalikod na ko and said my last piece.
