Thank you for reading His Secret Wife!
I quickly turned my head and Shannen's lips ended up landing on my cheek.
"You're important and special to me because of what we had before, but it's long gone now, Shannen." sabi ko at naramdaman ko ang unti-unting paglayo niya sa aking mukha. "I can still be your reliable friend pero hanggang doon nalang yon."
"Is there someone else now?" she suddenly asked at napatingin ako sa kaniya na ngayo'y nakayuko.
"I'm actually married now, Shannen, and we're going to have a child soon." pag-amin ko sa kaniya.
With her eyes widened from my sudden revelation, Shanne lifted her gaze at me. It was pretty obvious that she doesn't believe what I've just said.
"I'm not bluffing just to make myself less of a jerk because I really am married." sabi ko.
"How come I didn't know about it? I should've known, Sean! I still have contacts with our mutual friends while I'm away." pilit niyang hindi paniniwala.
"It was a very intimate and secretive wedding. Only our closest relatives were invited. That's what I want because it was only an arranged marriage." I told her.
"But it's clearly different now?" she asked.
I nodded. "It's clearly different now." I conceded.
"Can I ask another question, Sean?" sunod niyang sabi. "Before I finally let you go..."
"Of course." I simply said.
"Is the girl you're married to... her?" she carefully asked.
She didn't have to tell me who's the girl that she's talking about. I don't have to ask her who is she pertaining to.
We both know.
Once again, I nodded and smiled. "Yes." I answered. "It's her."
Shannen forced herself to laugh even though her tears won't stop from falling. She just kept on wiping her endless tears as she laugh off what I said.
"I can't believe that I'm pushing myself to be a mistress." I heard her whisper to herself before she raised her gaze at me. "Just go now, Sean. Go now."
"Shan..." umakto sana akong tutuluyan siya sa pagtayo ngunit hinawi niya lang ang aking kamay.
"Go!" she raised her voice at me like she really wanted me to leave her.
I want to console her more but I need to catch up on my wife.
Dala-dala lang ang aking pag-iisip na makausap ngayon si Sandra at maipaliwanag ang lahat, wala sa sarili akong pumasok sa restroom ng mga babae upang hanapin siya roon ngunit bumungad sa akin ang tili ng isang babaeng hindi pamilyar sa akin.
Noong una'y natakot at nabigla siya sa akin dahil sa bigla kong pagpasok ngunit kalaunan ay naging banayad ang kaniyang tingin na nanatili sa akin.
"Are the cubicles all vacant?" tanong ko naman sa kaniya.
Fixing her gaze at me, she nodded.
"Fuck." I cursed before I immediately went out of the restroom.
Patakbo akong bumalik sa aming table at nakitang wala na roon si Sandra at Brendt. That fucking dog took her. I'm sure!
