Hindi ko alam kung tama ba 'yung ginawa kong pag-alis nung nakatulog na si Donny. Hindi ko alam kung tama ba na nilayo ko si Elijah sa tatay niya.
Pero hangga't nakikita at nakakasama ko si Donny mananatili 'yung sugat na naidulot nila ni Sharlene sa akin. At alam ko na magiging paulit ulit lang ang pagtatalo namin kapag nagsama pa kami.
I deactivated all of my social media accounts and even deleted my viber. I changed my number too. Yes, apparently, I am hiding to people close to us. Ayoko munang malaman nila kung nasaan kami ni Elijah.
But, when I thought everything was going okay something's gonna happen. He showed up one fine day at our front door.
"D-donny..." I trailed off. "H-how....?"
Galit at nasasaktan siya. Alam ko 'yun, kasi 'yun 'yung pinapakita ng mga mata niya. Gusto kong maiyak kasi ang laki ng pinayat niya at mukha siyang pagod.
"I told you not to leave me!" Sigaw niya at hinila ako papasok ng apartment. "How dare you leave me that night when you made me believe were okay?!"
"I begged that night, Kisses! I even kneeled, asking for another chance! Asking for you to let me fix it, but what did you do?!" Alam kong pinipilit pa rin niyang kumalma. "I begged, Kisses.."
I saw how hurt he was. But, what should I do? I was hurt too.
"Hindi ko kayang makita ka, Donny." Sabi ko. "Masakit. Sobra. I needed to save myself."
"Akala mo ba ikaw lang nasaktan?" Tanong niya. "While saving yourself, did you ever thought that I was falling apart?"
Napahinga ako ng malalim, "We can't fix everything kung pareho tayong nasasaktan, Donny."
"Sabi ko sayo, kahit nasaan ka pa, hahanapin kita." Aniya. "I won't last a month without knowing where were you. Lalo na't kasama mo ang anak natin."
"Of course I would know." Sabi niya at tinaasan ako ng isang kilay. "I gave you a month to move on and accept everything, can I have my wife and my son back?"

"I found you. I swear not to let you go. No, not ever."
