Chapter 24

Clare's POV

Hindi makapaniwalang tumingin ako sa kanya. Narito na ako sa tapat ng apartment ngunit wala ata akong balak bumaba sa sasakyan ni Asumi.

"She was what?" naguguluhang tanong ko.

"I think she was raped." Oh my God.

She was raped by that Merell that she called? Is that why he threatened her? God.

"You don't make fun of rape, Sumi. It ain't funny." ang puso ko'y parang naniniwala ngunit ang isip ko ay hindi.

I just...can't believe.

She rolled her eyes. "Do you think I am capable of making deep jokes?" she hissed.

Bumuntong hininga ako at nagpaalam sa kanya at dali daling lumabas ng kanyang sasakyan at pumasok sa apartment ko at dumaretso sa kwarto.

But...why did she tell that my husband is the father? Why is she covering some crime? Goodness!

Does Zaire know this?

Do you think I should call him?

Do you think I should tell him?

Shems!

Kinuha ko ang telepono ko sa purse ko saka nag aalangang hinanap ang pangalan ni Zaire sa contacts.

Ahhh! Baka sabihin niya na nangengealam ako?

No! I shouldn't interfere anymore!

Pumikit ako ng mariin saka pinindot ang call button. Ilang sandali lang ang lumipas ay may narinig akong boses na sobrang namiss ko. Damn.

"Hello?" hindi na mapigilang mapatindig ang aking mga balahibo nang marinig ang kanyang malalim at pirming boses.

"Hey, hello? Who is this?" pumikit ako ng mariin ng marinig muli ang kanyang boses. Pinatay ko ang tawag saka humawak sa aking dibdib nang makaramdam ng hirap ng paghinga.

Damn!

Why the freak did I call him? Kaloka! Huhu.

Natuon ko ang atensyon ko sa aking telepono nang makitang may tumatawag.

Zairey bebe calling...

Oh my God. Will I answer it? My heart says yes and my mind says no! Ano ang paiiralin ko? Hindi ko na dapat siya ginugulo pa. On his contact name...I didn't change it, I never thought he wouldn't change his number, well, sino ba ako para siya pa yung mag adjust sa akin? I am just a woman with a desperate desire kaya nakagawa ng kagagahan sa buhay.

I declined the call and thrown myself at my bed. I can't help but to stare blankly on my ceiling. I don't really know what to do. And to Ate Dane, I don't know what to believe. I only want to believe if I had seen it myself, but how? I don't wanna interfere on someone's life now.

These past months being alone, I think I've grown up. Things thought me, and I should mark that in my mind. I should learn how to keep my promise, my promise that I won't let him see my face anymore. But how? How many more lessons to know so that I can keep that promise?

I also want to move on. I've learn from my mistake. Someone has been miserable because of me. But if you'll ask if I can move on of what I am feeling for him? I'll be  honest, I can't. Don't damn me, just damn this word...feelings.

I sighed. Kung para talaga kami sa isa't isa, gagawa at gagawa si kupido ng paraan para  pagtagpuin kaming muling dalawa. If not, then I'll genuinly accept it. You know, we can't control what will happen on the future.

Kinabukasan.

Wala akong errands na hahabulin ngayon at tanging pahinga ko lang ang araw na to dahil sa mga sumusunod na araw ay tatapusin ko ang mga projects and ramps ko dahil uuwi nga akong States sa susunod na dalawang linggo.

Tamad akong bumangon mula sa akin kama at tinignan ang fridge ngunit wala akong makita pagkain ni isa doon. Ugh. Katamad umalis e. Huhu.

Nagsuot lang ako ng short shorts saka loose shirt dahil nakakatamad talaga.

Nagpara ako ng tricycle mula sa toda sa kanto saka huminga ng malalim. Wooh. Kapagod maglakad a. Pero mas nakakatamad naman mag drive.

"Manong, sa pinakamalapit lang po na mall dito." agad tumango ang driver sa aking sinabi.

Pagkarating doon ay dumaretso ako sa supermarket at kumuha ng malaking cart. Kinuha ko lahat ng gusto ko na madadaanan ng cart.

"8050 pesos po, Ma'am." the cashier girl said.

I smiled at her and took my bag and noticed that my wallet isn't there.

Emeged! Hala! "Hala, teka ate! Naiwan ko po ata sa bahay yung wallet ko!" I panicked. Jusko daiy.

"Hala ma'am, paano po yan? Naipunch na po kasi." she said.

"I'll pay for it ate promise. Pwedeng bumalik ako saglit sa bahay? Goodness." I said.

"Ay hindi po pwede ma'am, policy po."

"I'll pay for it." napalingon ako sa kung sino yung nagsalita at nanlaki ang mga mata ko nang makita si Zaire doon.
