Saphire Raven’s POV

“Saph, your Dad is on the line”, sabi ni Ruby, ang personal assistant ko and my manager at best-friend ko din.

“Okay”, sagot ko tas tumayo na sa kinalalagyan ng phone.

…..

“Hello? ^_^”, masaya kong bungad sa kanya.

“Hi my daughter, how are you?” masaya ding sabi ni Dad.

“I’m very fine Dad. Sa ngayon, nagtake po ako ng leave sa work”, masaya kong pagbabalita sa kanya. Matagal niya na din kaseng hiniling na magleave ako sa work at magbakasyon sa Pinas.

“Really? That sounds good. So, are you coming home then?”, tanong niya sa akin.

“I guess so, para magkaroon naman tayo ng more bonding time together. We haven’t hang out that much anymore, namiss ko Daddy ko”, nagpapaboses bata ako. inaasar si Dad. After my mom died kase, si dad sa akin nalang nakacenter. I’ve never heard him date a woman. Sa akin at sa businesses nalang namin siya nakatuon. Ang bait ng daddy ko no? ^___^

“So, kamusta na kayo ni Clint? Are you planning to be married? Isasama mo ba siya dito with you?” tanong ni dad. Si Clint and anak ng kasosyo ni daddy sa kompanya. Since naging kami ni Clint, walang objection si dad. Masaya pa nga daw siya eh.

“I’m afraid dad. Hindi nagwork-out ang relationship namin the way we see it through”, pagpapaalam ko sa kanya sa totoo.

“I thought na hindi na kayo maghihiwalay. You’ve been with each other for 5 years. Kahit nung naging kayo nung nag-aral ka diyan sa US, hindi ako tumutol kase alam kong kayo din ang magkakatuluyan”, may tono ng panghihinayang sa boses ni dad.

“Things sometimes never occur the way we see it through”, sabi ko kay Dad, “Anyway dad, wala na din ako balak magpakasal. Maging ina lang ako, okay na. And with my career, talagang mahirap na mag-asawa pa ako. my shoots are sometimes sensual, ayoko ng contradictions”, pagpapaliwanag ko kay dad.

“So what are you saying my child? You’ll just be with someone and be impreganated tas wala na?” nararamdaman kong medyo nagalit si dad.

“No, it’s not that dad. Syempre, hindi lang kung sinu-sinong random guy. Kikilalanin ko muna siya. Please dad, agree to it”, pagmamakaawa ko sa kanya.

“I would agree to it if Clint will be the father of your baby”, prangka niyang pagsabi.

“Da…I promise to tell you everything that you needed to know about me and Clint, but promise me also that you’ll agree to whatever decision I have for myself no matter what”, I pleaded him.

Matagal bago siya sumagot…

……

……

…….

“Dad, are you still there?” tanong ko. Nakakadisappoint naman si dad.

“I am”, maikli niyang sagot.

“Dad, I’m sure that you’ll understand why I don’t want Clint to father my child the moment I tell you every single stink of him”, sabi ko sa kanya.

“Okay then, we’ll talk about your plans when you come home”, replied dad in a cold voice.

“Okay dad…”, I exhaled in disappointment.

“Anyway, kailan ka nga ba uuwi?” tanong ni Dad sa akin.

“I’ll be there soon dad. Nagagalit ka sa akin eh”, I feel self-pity for myself.
