Pagpasok ni Vic sa unit niya dumiretso ito sa kuwarto, inilapag ang mga dalang gamit sa sahid malapit sa kanyang kama saka biglang humilata.

"Hayst! Too many things are happening all at the same time. Haaaaa! Sana lang hindi ako masyadong ma-overwhelm ng lahat ng ito. The past two days were like a rollercoaster ride kind of life.

"As much as I don't want to indulge myself to that painful breakup, I can't help it. Umasa rin kasi ako e, na we can still fix things.

Muling napaiyak si Vic sa isiping ito. Iyong gabi na nakita niya si Bang sa lobby ng Sofitel Hotel that was the same day na nagpaalam si Jus sa kanya.

Vic: Did you see her?

Front Desk Staff: Ms. Galang? Sorry ipinatawag ko po sa mga staff sa lobby pero nagmamadali na daw po siya kasi may flight pa itong hinahabol. Pasensiya na po saka iniabot ang puting sobre.

Nalungkot si Vic. Umaasa siya siyempre dahil inalam ni Jus ang kinaroroonan niya ay susunod ito sa kanya para makapag quality time together. Matagal na rin since huli silang nag-usap, 3 months ago bago ito umalis papunta sa business trip niya sa Japan, sabi niya babawi ito pagbalik ... instead

"Hi Baby. By the time you read this probably I'm already gone.

I am sorry because I don't have the courage to personally do this.

The last three years that we were together were one of the best

years of my life if not the best. You came right just in time,

sabi ko nga heaven sent.

I was losing control of my sanity then and everything that time seemed so

wrong. From one failure to another. It was not a secret when we met that

I just got a divorce and I was about to lose my company.

You're a good company, sweet, full of life and a good listener.

There was never a dull moment. But I thought you were just in search of a
