Prologue "Pwede ba? Stop stalking me. It's not funny. It's creepy." then she throw the fl owers to the trash bin. "I'll never give up. Ano pa bang kailangan kong gawin, para lang mapansin mo ko? I really love you that much." he kneeled, all of the people in the hallway is w atching them. "Tumayo ka na nga jan! Our schoolmates are watching us. I told you so, you don't have to do anything." "Bakit ba ayaw mo sakin? Please.. kahit konti lang.. nagmamakaawa ako. Hangga't hindi mo sinasabi sakin ng diretso na hindi mo ko gusto, hindi ako titigil." He leave her no choice. Even she didn't want to be harsh, even she's trying to b e nice to him, kailangan niya nang magbitaw ng masasakit na salita. "Fine.. H-hindi nga kita gusto! Ang panget panget mo! Ang yabang yabang mo! You' re too annoying! You're creepy! You're so helpless! Stup--" "S-stop i-it.." his tears suddenly falls. This is his first heartbreak. HER POV I don't want to be harsh. Actually, ayokong nakakasakit ng feelings ng iba. But he's ridiculous. "Fine.. H-hindi nga kita gusto! Ang panget panget mo! Ang yabang yabang mo! You' re too annoying! You're creepy! You're so helpless! Stup--" panget? Sinong nilok o ko? Pano magiging panget ang isang campus heartthrob? So lame. "S-stop i-it.." It torns me. I'm his first heartbreak. I know I'm stupid, every high school girls in our campus dream of him. Tapos ako? I rejected him. He stood up and wiped away his tears.

"Mark this day.. Monique.." Chapter 1: Introduction. MONIQUE's POV *BANG!!* I started to drive at full speed as I hear the signal to start the race. I'm driving as if it is driving for my life. Halos literal na lumipad ang Audi R8 ko. I shouldn't lose for this race. Hindi p wede. Hindi ako pwedeng matalo. Not by him. Not by Chuck. Kailangan kong manalo. I need to do all just to win this race. Inapakan ko pa ng maigi ang gas. I can see the finish line from here. "Woooh!!" The crowd shouted nung makarating na ko sa finish line. Gladly Chuck wasn't here already. That only means, I win. "Nique! Ang galing mo!" I just smirked on Kate. Nakita ko na ang isang Red Ferreri na paparating. Chuck's car, which is going to be mine. "Where's the car key?" bungad ko sa kanya then I held my hand for the key. In every race there is an 'At Stake'. Well, kinukuha ko ang car key niya because obviuosly, it was the 'At Stake' if he'll lose. As always. I have his Porsche C

arrera, Lamborghini, BMW and Ferrari Milechili. Lagi nalang kasing kotse niya an g 'At Stake'. "Kakaiba ka talaga 'Nique." he said showing his deep dimples. "Don't call me that. We're not even close. Just give me the damn car key, Chuck. Ang dami mo pang satsat." I exclaimed, exasperated. I admit, I'm a short tempered. "Tsk! Kailan ba kita matatalo? Here." then he gave me the car keys. Hindi ko na siya pinansin. I just turned my back. Naiirita ako ngayon kasi were the center of attraction. Almost all of the people in here, nakatuon samin ang mga mata. "Kate, drive it." hinagis ko kay Kate ang car key ng kotse ni Chuck. Then I driv e my car. CHUCK'S POV Tinignan ko lang kung pano umalis si Monique. Tss. Wala na naman akong nagawa. Stupid. MONIQUE'S POV @ my house "Nique!" "What?!!" naiinis kong sagot kay Kate. Kanina pa kasi siya katok ng katok. Pero ang mas kinaiinis ko, the door was open. "Nique, guess who's here." she excitedly said. She's even smiling ear to ear. "Don't call me that. I'm a year older than you. Have you forgot it already?" "Ah he.he. Sabi ko nga, ATE. He.he." "Good. What now?" "Ah! Nothing. Sige, baba na ko!"

Natakot na naman siguro sakin. Am I that scary? Psh. I lay on my bed. I closed my eyes. Sobrang napagod ako sa race namin ni Chuck ka nina. I was about to fell asleep when I felt someone laid beside me. I open my eyes to see whom. "Hi!" he mumbled It's Zacharry Sandoval. Zac is my bestfriend. He's the only one who can take thi s attitude of mine. "Psh. What are you doing here?" I asked. He's even topless, but I used to it. La gi naman siyang ganyan pag nandito sa bahay ko. "Cuuute!" he then pinch my cheeks. "Aww. Ishtooopp iit." I complain while he's still pinching my cheeks. "Lambingan sa tanghaling tapat? How sweet. Yuck!" it was Jase, Zac's brother and he's also topless. Magkapatid nga sila. "Andun na 'tol eh! Istorbo ka!" sabi naman ni Zac kay Jase then he throw a pillo w to him. Luckily for Jase dahil nasalo niya. "Haaayyy!!" tapos ibinagsak niya ang katawan niya sa kama. Now, I'm in the middl e of the two of them. "Hey! Jase, masikip! You're so thin then you fill almost all of the space!" siga w ko sa kanya. This two, kinukulit na naman nila ko. "Thin? Payatot? Ako? Can't you see this muscle?" he show me his biceps, wala nam ang muscle. Tsk. "Magtigil ka nga, Jason! Wala ka namang muscle!" si Zac whilst placing his arms around my waist. Nakaharap kasi ako ngayon kay Jase. So, Zac is behind me and ba ck hugging me. "Yeah, right. Ang payatot naman." I rolled my eyes.

"Ah ganon? Etong sayo!" "Hahaha! Stop it! Jase! Stop tickling me! Hahaha!" "No! Sabihin mo muna macho ko!" Jase didn't stop tickling me. Alam talaga nila ang weak point ko. *BOOGSH* "Oh?" Kundi pa nalaglag si Zac sa kama baka hindi parin tumigil si Jase sa pagkiliti s akin. Zac fell to the ground dahil siguro sa sobrang likot ko. The door suddenly opens. "Oh? Kuya Zac? What's that, planking? Sali ako!" Kate also place herself beside Zac. Bata pa talaga siya. "Tss. I'm not doing here a planking, Kate." sabi ni Zac kay Kate while rolling h is eyes heavenwards. Haha. I find it funny. "Eh? Ay, yae na nga! By the way! Kain na muna tayo! Tara, baba na tayo!" "Okay." Sabay sabay na kaming bumababa and walk towards the kitchen. I, Zac and Jase was just staring at the food that cooked by Kate. "Mukhang masarap!" unang nagsalita si Jase then he eat some of the food. I'm just waiting for his reaction. "Hmm. Sarap nitong bacon, though napasobra ng konti sa asin. Pero okay na rin." sabi niya kay Kate. "Hindi naman bacon yan eh! Porkchop yan!" she pouted her lips. My little sister inherited my charms.

"Okay! I'll call the delivery." "Yeah. Mas magandang idea yan." Zac. "Wait! Hindi niyo pa nga natitikman eh! Eto kare kare tikman niyo!" then Jase pu t some food in our plates. "Jase!" tawag ni Kate kay Jase. "What?" "Pinakbet yan eh! Ako na nga lang tatawag ng delivery!" Then Kate called the delivery. We decided na manuod muna while waiting for the delivery. *DING DONG!!* "Ako na!" Then I held my way to open the gate. I bet it's the delivery, but when I opened the gate I see him. "Chuck? What are you doing here?" Chapter 2: Defeated. MONIQUE'S POV "Chuck?! What are you doing here?!" I was in a total shocked ng makita ko si Chuck. How did he know where my house is? "Hindi mo man lang ba ko papapasukin?" "You know me Chuck. Go straight to the point. I know na hindi ka pupunta dito fo r nothing." "Kilala mo talaga ko." then he smiled again "anyway, 9 pm at Rouge."

He was talking about the car race again. Rouge is a place kung san nagtitipon-ti pon at nagkikita ang mga car racers, and also a bar at the same time. "Okay. Wanna play again huh?" "Yeah. I'm kinda boring you know." "Tss. Okay then. Let's have some fun later, 9 pm at Rouge." "Okay sweety." he was about to lean and kissed me but instead I face him my palm . "Nah-uh. Not so fast." "Psh. Kahit kailan talaga di ako maka-isa sayo. Anyways, bye. See ya!" Then he turn his back at umalis na. Hoo. I don't know but I felt some relief nung umalis na siya. @ Rouge "Nique!" sumalubong agad si Ice sakin and gave me a peck on the cheek "You're he re to race again?" "Of course. What else do you think?" "With whom?" "Chuck. By the way, where's he?" "There." then he pointed out where he is. Nasa pinaka-gitnang table with a girl on his lap. Cassanova mode na naman siya. Tsk. I said "Excuse" to Ice and make my way to Chuck. *TING!!*

My great mind have an idea. This will be fun. Kumuha ako ng drinks sa waiter na dumaan and lumapit sa kanila. "Hi, Chuck!" I said it with my sweetest tone. Parang nagulat naman siya whilst having a big question mark on his face. "Chuck, make sure that Xander wouldn't see what you're doing." "Hey, why are you flirting with my boyfriend? Who are you ba? And who's Xander?" si hipon girl, parang hipon, kain katawan tapon ulo. Mga taste talaga nito ni C huck. "Oh, Xander? He's Chuck's son." "Chuck is that true? May anak ka na?" "Aileen--*PAK!!*" Ouch. That hurts. "Aileen! Wait!" sigaw ni Chuck kay hipon girl dahil she run away habang umiiyak. Poor girl. "YOU!!" "What?" "What have you done, Monique?!" "Why? I'm just having fun here. Is that bad? Why are you so mad, anyway?" "Fun? Really?! HUH! I'm mad because the girl that I supposed to be laid with ton ight is gone. At dahil sa'yo yun!!" I'm so calm habang sinisigawan niya ko. In fact, natutuwa akong panuorin siyang galit na galit and he's turning to be a tomato. Haha. I don't care if we have an audience. "Yun lang ba? You're so mad because of that? Hahaha!" I sarcastically laugh. Thi s is so fun. Nagulat nalang ako ng hilahin niya ko at dalhin sa parking space.

"You're so mean, Monique. Did you know that?" he said through gritted teeth. Gal it na galit talaga siya? Sino ba ang babaeng yon? "Well, Monique Herrera born to be mean." "Really?" after that he smiled evilly. Uh-oh. I don't like that kind of smile. P arang may binabalak siya na masama. Nilapit niya yung mukha niya sakin. Inches to centimeter. Palapit ng palapit. "Tch. Are you trying to seduce me, Chuck Perez?" "Yeah" "And why again?" "Because you take away the woman that I supposed to be laid with tonight?" "Di maka-move on? Okay, fine. Stop this nonsense. Ganito nalang.. Let's race. If you'll win we'll spend the night together but if I'm gonna win you'll get over this." "I like that." *** *BANG!!* Nag-umpisa na ang race. Me, against Chuck. I don't know but everytime na siya ang makakalaban ko, kinakabahan ako at feelin g ko, matatalo ako. Shoot! Nalagpasan na niya ko. This is not happening. I hit the full speed. I won 't let Chuck win this race and of course win my precious body. Inapakan ko pa lalo ang gas to make it faster. *CRACK!!* "Shit! Ouch!" nabali ata yung takong ko.

Stupid! Ba't ba kasi ako nakatakong? I take off my heels and continue to drive kaso nung aapakan ko na ulit yung gas. . "Araay! Arrgh! Hindi pwede!" Halos hindi ko na makita ang kotse ni Chuck. Mas nauuna pa naman siya sakin. SOMEBODY'S POV "Pre, paparating na si Chuck!" "Oo nga. Gago talaga yun." "I heard one night stand daw at stake nila jan ah?" "Loko talaga yun. Lagi niyang sinasadyang magpatalo tapos ngayon.. Tsk! Gusto ta laga makaganti kay Monique." "Wooh!!" "Oh? Panalo nga si Chuck, pre!" MONIQUE'S POV Dahil sa masakit ang paa ko, hindi ko na nagawang manalo against Chuck. One night stand? Ugh. I loathe it. Bakit ba kasi nag-over confident ako? Nang makarating na ko sa finished line, Chuck is already there leaning on his BM W McClarren and again, showing his deep dimples. "Hey, 'Nique!" "Hey, 'Nique your face! Help me to get out of here." "Why? Anong nangyari?" Agad siyang lumapit at dahil convertible ang car ko, binuhat niya nalang ako.

"It's bleeding!!" he said after seeing my injured foot. "Duh? Obviously, Chuck." He opened his car at inupo ako sa shotgun seat. @ his condo "Wait me here." then he left. I was just sitting here at his couch. Scanning around. It didn't change even a l ittle. Pagkalabas niya galing kitchen, he's already carrying a first aid kit. "Akin na." he then kneeled and took my foot. "Teka! Marunong ka ba niyan? And by the way, why did you bring me here? Dapat sa hospital ah!" "It's a simple sprain. Hindi ka na kailangang dalhin sa ospital. And I'm a Med s tudent, remember?" Oh, hell. Medicine nga pala ang course niya. He's on his 5th year and I'm a fres h grad, fine arts is my course. "Araay! Dahan dahan naman! Argg!" "Eto na nga po oh. Malapit na 'to! ... Ayan! Done!" Tapos na niyang lagyan ng gauze yung paa ko. "Okay. Let's go back to our business." Alam ko kung anong business ang sinasabi niya. He was talking about THAT!! Before I say something he already invade my lips. I'm half laying at the couch. I never wanted this. But it's our deal. He then kissed me on my neck and so on..

Chapter 3: The Coonsequence of Being At Stake. [Restricted Chapter] http://www.facebook.com/notes/ddunoticedsgrl/chapter-3-the-consequence-of-the-at -stake/336632 Chapter 4: Pretend Nothing Happened. I was awaken by the light coming from the sun. Iniangat ko ang ulo ko and saw an angel, Chuck. Mukhang anghel naman pala siya pag-tulog. Umupo ako mula sa pagkakahiga. Sumandal ako sa headboard ng kama niya. Tinignan ko lang ang mukha niya. He's like an innocent angel. Sana lagi nalang g anito pero alam ko namang all of this will end. Tatayo na sana ko ng biglang may humawak sa risk ko. "San ka pupunta?" "It's none of your business, Chuck. Bitawan mo ko." He acted like I didn't said anything. Binalewala lang niya yung sinabi ko. "San ka muna pupunta?" "It's none of your damn business!" "It's my business, Monique. Because you are my business." I just rolled my eyes and tried to stand again "Aww!" Tsk. I forgot, I have an injured foot. "Wag mo nang pilitin. Masasaktan ka lang." As he said, hindi ko nalang pinilit. I just sitted on his bedside and rolled my eyes at him heavenwards. "About what I've said and we do last night--" I cutted him "Let's forget that. It's just a deal." "Ibig sabihin.. all that happened last night, wala lang sa'yo lahat yun?" I nodd ed "Shit! ... wala lang pala.." at ngumisi siya but you can see the disappointme nt at his face "Shit lang talaga! Forget it? Damn! I can't do that.."

"Forget it, Chuck! Don't you understand? FOR.GET.IT!!" "I SAID I CAN'T DO THAT!!" "WHY?! IT'S JUST SIMPLE. FORGET IT! CAN'T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?!" We both shouting at the top of our lungs. "WHY?! T*NGIN*!! KASE MAHAL KITA!! MAHAL NA MAHAL!! DAMN THIS!!" Napatahimik lang ako sa sinabi niya. I thought I misheard it last night. Only if you know, Chuck. "I wanna go home." I tried to stand again. I wrapped myself using the blanket. I gather all of my clothes and went to the bathroom to wear it. "Hatid na kita." "No need." "Wala kang sapatos." I have no choice, nagpahatid nalang ako sa kanya. CHUCK'S POV *DING DONG!* "Coming!" Tinignan ko lang si Monique na ngayon ay buhat buhat ko. Lalaki yung sumagot galing sa loob ng bahay niya. Kailan pa siya nagkaroon ng la laking kasama sa bahay niya? Siya at si Kate lang naman ang nakatira dito ahh. The door opens and there is a topless boy, I think ka-age lang niya si Kate.

"Oh? Ate? Anong nangyari?" tanong agad nito. "Jase! Is that Monique?" another guy came out. "Oo, Kuya." "Pre, salamat. Ako na magbubuhat sa kanya papasok." sabi niya sakin pero halata namang hindi siya sincere sa pagpapasalamat niya. How did I know? Dahil kung tit igan niya ko, kulang nalang kainin niya ko ng buhay, as if I'm scared. "Thanks, ako nalang." "Oh? Kuya Chuck! Anong nangyari kay Ate? Ay.. pasok muna.." si Kate at kakagalin g lang niya sa loob. Pumasok na rin ako. Tinignan ko ulit si Monique. She's sleeping again. "Nasan kwarto niya?" "Ahh.. tara.." Sinamahan ako ni Kate papunta sa kwarto ni Monique at umalis agad siya. I put he r on the bed. "Tch." I sat down sa gilid ng kama niya. I kissed her smoothly at her lips. "Forget it? Ha!" I laugh sarcastically. "Hindi ko kaya.. I love you so much.." I took her hand. Hayy.. "Bakit ba kita minahal? You're a mean. Your a bitch. You're a flirt. You're too tough. You're too brave. You're a control freak. You're a short tempered.. tsk! This is so gay!" Napaisip tuloy ako bigla. Naalala ko na naman yun. Itutuloy ko pa kaya? Chapter 5: The Race Between Ice and Chuck. MONIQUE'S POV

@ Rouge I'm here at Rouge. I want to race. Kapag nakikipag-race kasi ako gumagaan yung p akiramdam ko at isa pa, I'm bored. Hinanap ko agad si Ice. I went to his office, by the way he's the owner of Rouge . "Is Ice there?" I asked his secretary. "Ms. Monique, kayo pala. Opo nandyan po siya. Teka lang po tatawagan ko lang." s he said and picked the phone. "Pasok na po kayo." then she smiled. "Thanks." Pumasok na nga ako sa loob ng office ni Ice. And as I've expected, he's playing with his cards again. Tinignan niya lang ako at nginitian. Nakaupo siya sa visiting area. I sit beside him. May nakita akong picture frame sa table niya. Naalala ko na naman. How my life become this miserable. How I am become like thi s. Lahat ng pinagdaanan ko, lahat ng sakit na naranasan ko. Lahat ng luhang naiy ak ko mag-isa. "Shoot! Monique, why are you crying?" "Huh? Nothing." I wiped away my tears. "Yun ba? Tae, nakalimutan ko. Sorry." then mabilis niyang tinago yung picture fr ame sa drawer niya. Niyakap niya lang ako and the tears that I avoid to fall started to fell. I burs t out. "Kala ko nakalimutan mo na yun. That was 5 years ago. Did you miss them?" Yeah. I really miss them. I really miss our parents. Ice is my half brother. Our

parents died because of a car accident. There was some drunken bullshit driver that didn't know how to drive. A reckless driver. "Shh.. Stop crying.." he patted my head. "I want to race." "Sige. Fix yourself first." After I fixed myself, lumabas na kami. Nag-aya muna kong uminom kahit konti lang . "Your drinking too much, 'Nique. Tara na, let's race." "Mamaya na." "Stop it. Tara na." "Wag mong pilitin, dude." sabay kaming napatingin sa nagsalita. I just rolled my eyes at him. Tss. He's with a girl, clinging his arms. "Honey, ano ba? Pabayaan nalang natin sila. Instead make love with me." Geez. As in? Yung girl pa talaga yung nag-iinitiate? How cheap? "Wait lang, Babe." "What do you want?" I said para mawala na sila sa paningin ko. "Let's race?" "No. She's not gonna race with you. Leave her alone." bago pa ko magsalita, nags alita na si Ice. That is my overprotective brother. "Bro, she's my girl." Chuck said. "Tss. Talaga lang ha? Kaya pala." "Fine. Let's race. If I win, she's mine then if you win, she's yours."

"Deal!" And that's it. Chuck and Ice will race. Tch. Para akong laruan. They'll race and the stake is me? What the heck? *BANG!!* They started to race. I'm just standing here near at the finished line, waiting for the winner. Who'll gonna win? Chuck or Ice? Then after several minutes of waiting a BMW M1 Hommage came.. it's Ice's.. SOMEONE'S POV "Wow. Natalo si Chuck. So that means he'll go away from her?" "Well, yeah." "Tuloy ba yung plano?" "I really don't know. Maybe we should call him." "Okay. I'll call him." Chapter 6: My new neighbor. MONIQUE'S POV @ my house "Kate! Wala nang laman yung fridge. I'll go to the grocery." "Sige, Ate." then I took my carkey. And went to the door. "Sama ko!" habol ni Zac. "Wear your shirt first!" I shouted at him. Pa'no ba naman lalabas ng topless. Ts s.

"Eto na nga po oh." then he put on his shirt. "Good." I closed the door and started to walk to the gate. "Alam mo ang selfish mo." Zac blurted out. I frown "Why?" "kase.." Ugh. Cliff hanger. "Gusto mo ikaw lang nakakakita ng abs ko. You don't want others to see it." I throw him my famous death glare at him. Feelingero. "Woah. Kidding." I froze when I see a car outside our neighbor's house. No it's not his. Then a g uy carrying two bags came out the car. It's been two weeks since the last time I saw him. But.. what is he doing here? "Uy! Mag-drive ka na nga!" I just compose myself when I heard Zac's voice. *** "Zac! Help me with this." I called Zac. Kinuha niya yung groceries na mga pinami li namin. My head hurts. Nahilo ata sa kakaikot sa supermarket. Huminto muna ko saglit. "Oh? Nangyari sayo?" tanong sakin ni Zac after niyang mapasok yung mga grocery s a loob ng bahay. I'm still at the garage. "Nothing. Nahilo lang konti." I just ignored the pain and walk towards our house . "'Nique, I gotta go. May pinapagawa saken si Dad e." "Sige, Zac. Thanks." "Sige. Bye. Love you!!" tss. Baliw. Umalis na si Zac. I hurriedly stormed into my room. Ang sakit talaga ng ulo ko. But still.. I can resist it.

"Ate!" Kate called me. I'm laying on my bed. "What?" "May new neighbor tayo!" she excitedly exclaimed. "Okay." "Okay? Nyee? Okay lang? Hindi mo man lang ba itatanong kung sino?" "Fine. Fine. Sino?" "Psh. Find it out yourself!! Baboosh!" She left my room. Hayy. I think I need a rest. Nagising ako nang may narinig akong maingay sa baba. 5 pm palang. "Oh? Talaga? Grabe pala. Hihi." "Yeah. And you know nung hig--" Natigilan sila nang makita nila ko and so do I. "What--" I supposedly ask him kung anong ginagawa niya dito but in an instant pu munta ko sa bathroom to err.. puke. "Ate, okay ka lang?" "Y-yes." Pagkatapos kong sumuka I brushed my teeth. Pagkalabas ko ng bathroom nakita ko si Kate at siya na inaantay ang paglabas ko. "What are you doing here?" tanong ko agad sa kanya. "Ate, siya yung bago nating kapitbahay." Oh damnit. Bagong kapitbahay? How? What the hell.

"Teka. Ate, may sakit ka ba? Bakit ka nga pala nagsuka?" "A-ah.. Masakit lang ulo ko." "Sure?" "Yeah." I just glared at Chuck. Umakyat na ko sa kwarto ko. I can't believe this. Of all places na pwedeng lipatan? Bakit dito pa sa village namin? Bakit sa katapat na bahay pa namin? Tsk. Nakahiga na ko nang biglang bumukas yung pinto. Tinignan ko lang siya kung pano pumasok sa loob ng kwarto ko. "Hey." he started. "Why?" "I just want to check you. Namumutla ka." "Okay lang ako." "Nagpa-check up ka na ba?" "Hindi pa. But I'll surely do it." Why is it so awkward? Nagsukatan lang kami ng tingin. Ugh. I loathe this. "Monique.." His face was inches from me. I can also smell his breathe. I felt his lips into mine. It was a passionate and smooth kissed. We were kissing as if there's no tommorow. *TOK TOK!!*

We parted our lips. Shit?! What I've just done?? "Guys, dinner is ready. Kuya Chuck, dito ka na mag-dinner." "Sure. Sunod nalang kami." "Sige!" The door closed. "Sorry." he apologized. "O-okay. Ugh." Nagtitigan ulit kami for 10 seconds then sabay na nag-smile. Wierd, right? "Tara na?" After we ate umuwi narin naman na siya. Hoo. Atlast. *** I'm here at the hospital to have a check up. Kahit kaninang umaga nagsusuka and nahihilo parin ako. "Ms. Herrera" the doctor said while giving a genuine smile on me. "Yes, Doc? What's the result? Am I sick?" "Congratulations! You're 3 weeks pregnant!" Chapter 7: Result (Part One) MONIQUE's POV "Congratulations! You're 3 weeks pregnant!" This. Is. Not. Happening. After several tests na ginawa sakin, umuwi na agad ako. Until now, I don't know what to react. This is not according to my plans. This is so unexpected.

I've decided to not tell to anyone that I'm pregnant, well, except Kate, Zac, Ic e and Jase. *** I'm 5 weeks pregnant now. Supposedly I'll going to enroll for my masteral degree but in my case, I think I couldn't do it . So, sinamahan ko nalang mag-enroll s i Kate. She's 3rd year college. "Ate! Bilisan natin!" pagmamadali ni Kate. We're still here at the parking lot. "Can't you just wait?" Nasa labas na kasi siya ng kotse and nasa loob pa ko. "Let's go." Naglalakad na kami sa loob ng university. "Hi, Ms. Monique!" "Good morning, Ms. Monique!" "Ms. Monique, hello!" Ang daming bumabati sakin. I've known here because I'm an alumnus. Dire-diretso lang kami sa paglalakad ni Kate nang may mahagip ang mga mata ko. A guy and a girl, making out. I just walked passed through them. Chin up and full of confidence. He and I even made an eye contact for a while. Then suddenly, tears runs down my face. It brokes me. It made me feel the pain. Shit. I thought were okay. Even we're not official. You're so stupid, Monique. Y ou assumed. What to expect from a manwhore. Playboy. Cassanova? You should've think about it wisely. Chuck will always be Chuck. This is the reason why I don't trust anyone . I felt betrayed now. It really hurts. Who the hell he think he is, to make me feel this way. I wiped away my tears. Monique Herrera is not like this. This is not so me. "Ahh!" I stop walking. Nahihilo ako. My legs became weaker. Nagdadalawa na ang t ingin ko sa paligid. Then everything went black. Chapter 7: Result (Part Two) KATE'S POV "Ate! Ate! Tulong! Nahimatay Ate ko!" "Kate! What happened to her?" "Kuya Chuck! Hindi ko alam basta nahimatay nalang siya bigla."

Agad na binuhat ni Kuya Chuck si Ate at sinakay sa kotse niya. Meron pa ngang is ang girl na hinahabol si Kuya Chuck, kaso hindi niya na pinapansin. Shet. Kinikilg ako! Pano kase I can see sa mukha ni Kuya Chuck na nag-aalala siy a ng sobra kay Ate. Tarantang taranta! Mas grabe pa yung pag-aalala niya kaysa s akin. Pagdating namin sa hospital inasikaso agad si Ate ng mga nurses at doctor. Hindi ako masyadong kinakabahan kasi as far as I know na kasama sa pagbubuntis ang mg a ganung bagay. Siguro na-stress lang si Ate. Sana naman okay si baby. Paglabas ng doctor agad siyang tinanong ni Kuya Chuck kung anong lagay ni Ate. P arang kahit sino handang awayin ni Kuya Chuck kapag nalaman niyang hindi okay si Ate. "She's okay now, as well as the baby." Crap. Hindi nga pala alam ni Kuya Chuck na buntis si Ate. Halata sa mukha niya y ung pagkagulat. Pano ko ba 'to sasabihin? "B-buntis ang Ate mo?" "Ahh.. ehh.. ano kasi.." I lost my words. "For christ's sake! For how long?" Wow. He's mad but he's calm. "5 weeks." I breathlessly answer. "Is it mine?" "....." hindi ako makasagot, lagot ako kay Ate nito e. "KATE! IS IT MINE?!" hinawakan niya ko sa both arms ko. Nakakatakot siya! "Y-YES!!" nakapikit ko pang sagot. Natatakot na kasi talaga ko. "F*ck!" Binitiwan niya na ko. Napa-face palm siya. Shocked sa narinig niya. MONIQUE's POV I woke up in a hospital bed. Wearing a hospital gown. Shit. What happened to me. I look around the room. There was Kate, Zac and Jase, they're sleeping. The clock says 1:45am. Tatayo na sana ko nang biglang bumukas ang pinto. "You're awake!" agad nitong nilagay sa side table yung dala niyang plastic bag. "Anong nangyari?" "Ahh.. you passed out." Oo nga pala. Nasa university ako para samahang mag-enroll si Kate nang.. "Thanks for the visit. You can go now." bigla namang natigilan si Chuck. Nagtaka siya sa sinabi ko. "Okay lang. Wala naman akong gagawin. And besides, I want to be sure that our ba by is fine." My eyes bulged. My goodness. How did he know that?! "How--MY baby is surely fine now. No need to worry about." I make sure to emphas ize the word 'my'. "Wala sa plano mong sabihin sakin na magiging tatay na ko noh? Wala kang balak s abihin na magkaka-baby na tayo, na buntis ka and I'm the father." "Obviously, Chuck. Obviously. Ano naman kasing mapapala ko kung sasabihin ko pa sa'yo? 'Chuck, I'm pregnant and you're the father'. Then what you'll gonna do af ter that? Well, as far as I know you, you'll do NOTHING." "Ass. I'll marry you if you told me that." Woah. I was taken aback by that. He'll marry me? Is this joke time? Bullshit. "There was no fun with that, if you're kidding." "I'm darn serious here." "Fine. You'll marry me if I told you that. But luckily, I didn't." I smirked to hide my unwelcome feelings. "Shit. Monique. You didn't failed to hurt me." he's hurt? And with that he walked out. Hurt him? As if! Bakit ba ko nag-passed out? Eh dib a, that was because of him!. Because I saw him making out with a nonetheless bit ch. And I'm hurt because of that! All this time, I'm trying to be like numb. I'm trying to ignore all this hard fe elings. But in the end, I can't. Lagi nalang ako ang nasasaktan. Chapter 8: Contractions. 3rd PERSON'S POV

"Wohoo.. hoo.. hoo.." walang ginawa si Monique kundi ang mag-inhale-exhale haban g sakay siya ng kotse ni Kate patungo sa ospital. "Sandali nalang, Ate! Malapit na tayo! Konting tiis!" natatarantang nagmamadali sa pagddrive si Kate papuntang hospital. Tama. Papunta sila ng ospital dahil manganganak na si Monique. Pumutok na kasi a ng water bag niya. Almost eight months narin mula nang nangyari sa kanila ni Chuck. Pagdating nila sa ospital agad na inasikaso si Monique ng mga doctor at nurse. T inawagan naman ni Kate sina Zac, Jase at Ice. "Oh kamusta na? Anong sabi ng doctor?" hinihingal pa si Ice nang dumating ito sa ospital. "Kuya, nagle-labor pa daw eh." Medyo awkward pa si Kate kay Ice. Hindi pa nasasabi ni Monique pero adopted lang si Kate. At hindi sila ganon ka-close ni Ice. Maya maya pa dumating na ang magkapatid na Sandoval. Sina Jase at Zac. "Nasa loob parin?" agad na tanong ni Zac kay Kate. "Oo, Kuya Zac." After few minutes lumabas ang doctor at sinabing kailangang i-ceasarian si Moniq ue dahil masyadong malaki ang baby. "NO!" ayaw pumayag ni Kate sa gustong mangyari ng doctor, bilang babae alam niya ang magiging consequence nun. Magkakaron ng mark 'yon. Ayaw na ayaw pa man din ng Ate niya ang ni magalusan tapos ganung kalaking scar? No way! "We have no time for arguements, Kateleen." nasa warning tone na ang Kuya Ice ni ya kaya naman wala na siyang nagawa kundi sundin ito. *** Naipanganak ng maayos ni Monique ang isang bouncing baby boy. Nate Herrera, ang pangalan ng baby. Monique is a big fan of gossip girls, kung h indi niyo pa alam. "Wow. Ang cute cute naman ni baby Nate! Manang mana sa Tita!" kinukurot pa ni Ka te sa pisngi si baby Nate. Tuwang tuwa siya na buhat buhat ito sa isang private room sa ospital. Nailipat n a kasi si Monique dun. "Ay, baby wag kang maniniwala sa Tita Kate mo, okay?" tila nang-aasar naman si J ase na kinurit din si baby Nate sa pisngi. "Stop doing that! Nilalamog niyo naman ang anak ko eh!" Monique protest dahil ka nina pa nga trip na trip nina Jase at Kate ang baby niya. "Seriously, Ate. Hindi mo siya kamukha." biglang seryoso naman ni Kate. "Kamukha niya si.." ayaw pang ituloy ni Kate ang sasabihin. Tinapunan lang siya ni Monique ng kanyang famous death glare. Bumukas ang pinto at pumasok si Zac. Bumili kasi ito ng makakain nila. "Oh, kain na tayo!" "Kailangan kong bumalik sa Rouge. Madami pa kong gagawin" tumayo si Ice sa pagka kaupo sa sofa at nilapitan si Monique na nakahiga sa kama "Congrats, sis. Take c are. Alagaan mong mabuti si baby Nate, okay? Babalik nalang ako mamaya." and he kissed her in the forehead. She just gave him a smile. Ang totoo, hindi naman talaga babalik si Ice sa Rouge at wala din siyang kailang ang dun. The truth is pupunta siya sa bahay ni Chuck. Yes, kakausapin niya si Ch uck. Naawa kasi siya sa magiging future ni baby Nate, kahit na sabihin ng kapatid niy a na kaya niyang palakihin nang mag-isa ang bata, alam niyang kailangan parin ni to ng isang tatay, lalo na't lalaki pa man din si baby. Pagdating niya dun, bukas ang gate kaya naman without any render pumasok na siya sa loob. Bukas rin ang pinto ng bahay nito and what else he could do? Pumasok na rin siya . Wala naman siyang gagawing masama eh. May narinig siyang nagtatawanan sa may bandang kitchen. Tinungo niya ang kitchen para malaman kung sino ang mga yun. Few steps away, naririnig na niya ang usapan ng mga ito. May isang nagsalita at napahinto siya nang dahil do'n. "Monique will get my revenge.. "

Chapter 9: Need A Babysitter (Part one) 3rd PERSON'S POV "Monique will get my revenge.. " At sabay sabay pang nagtawanan ang mga ito. Ice's fists clenched. Biglang nagdil im ang paningin niya at agad na sinugod ng suntok ang mga ito. Gulat na gulat ang mga ito ng makita siya. Lalo na't may dala itong itim na aura . "What the fuck!" yun na lang ang nasabi ng lalaking napaupo sa sahig at duguan a ng gilid ng labi dahil sa malakas na suntok ni Ice. Hindi nagsalita si Ice at patuloy na pinagsusuntok ito hanggang sa mapuno ng dug o ang mukha nito. It doesn't matter kung anong mangyayari after this. Basta ang alam ni Ice, makak apatay siya ng isang lalaki, named Chuck Perez. Galit na galit siya dito. Pumunt a siya dun hindi para bugbugin ito kundi para ibalita na nanganak na si Monique at kausapin na rin tungkol sa pagpapalaki ng bata. Pero ito ang nadatnan niya. Long time ago Chuck and Ice we're close friends but not until Chuck did to Moniq ue. Alam niyang cassanova si Chuck. Kaya naman hindi sila nagkasundo nang si Mon ique naman ang biktimahin nito. Pilit na inaawat ng mga kaibigan ni Chuck si Ice, pero hindi parin ito tumitigil . Samantalang si Chuck ay hindi lumalaban. Tinigilan lang ni Ice si Chuck nang mawalan na ito ng malay. Pagkatapos nun, wal ang sabi sabi ay umalis siya. *** Nagising si Chuck sa isang hospital room. Pinilit niyang gumalaw. "Ahh!" Ngunit hindi niya nagawa dahil sa sakit na nadarama ng buong katawan niya. He looked ar ound to see nothing. Walang ibang nandoon kundi siya lang. MONIQUE'S POV "Ready ka na?" Zac asked me. I'm discharge today. Atlast! I don't like the smell of the hospitals. It sucks. "Yep. Where's my baby?" "Kasama ni Kate. Nauna na sa kotse." I'm very very happy because I have my baby now! He's so cute! I'm not regretting having him. I really not into kids, but hey! This is my own child! MY OWN! Unti l now, I can't believe that I have an angel like my baby. It's feels really good . Ganito pala ang feeling ng isang ina. I can say it's one of the fulfillments as a woman. We were in the lobby when we saw Kate. Cheerfully chatting on a guy sitting on a wheeled chair. Who's that guy? My mouth drops when I knew who the guy is. Arggh . And he's even carrying my baby. "Uhh.. una na ko sa kotse, 'Nique." I just nodded at Zac. I hastily walked towards Kate and Chuck, whose I think is having fun with my bab y. But.. why Chuck is wearing a hospital gown and sitting on a wheeled chair? Ps h. No time for my thoughts. "Kate, let's go." "Oh? Nandyan ka na pala Ate! Pinapakilala ko lang si baby Nate sa Daddy niya." I gave Kate my death glare for doing that. "Don't blame Kate, Monique. I insisted to see our baby. Besides, may karapatan d in naman siguro ako sa anak natin. Monique, kahit pagbali-baliktarin mo pa ang m undo I'm still the father of this child and he's still my child. Sana naman wag mong ipagdamot sakin si baby Nate. Anak ko rin siya. And please let our child ca ll me and known me as his dad. I offered you a marriage but you refuse to it, so , I'll support our baby, in every aspect, financially or even taking care of him whether you like it or not." Uggh. Nakakainis! Tama lahat ng sinabi niya. Darn. Knowing Chuck he'll do what h e says. I smiled roughly at him. "Very well said and fair pointed. Now, can I have my ba by? We're going home. And I think we'll talk about that matter after you dischar ge from this hospital." He kissed baby Nate on the head before giving to me. Wait. Tama ba ko ng nakita

? His eyes sparked. Or is it just me? "Kate." I motioned Kate to follow me and we go out of the hospital. Chapter 9: Need a babysitter (Part Two) 3RD PERSON'S POV 3 weeks later.. Namumroblema si Monique. Tumanggap kasi siya ng modelling job at hindi niya alam kung kanino iiwan si baby Nate upang mag-alaga dito. Kahit na nanganak si Moniq ue ay hindi iyon halata sa kanya. Parang hindi nga siya nanganak eh. Walang pina gbago ang sexy body niya. Wala si Kate dahil busy sa school. Tinanggap niya 'yun g trabaho dahil kailangan niya ng income lalo na at meron na siyang baby Nate. A nd she have to give all his needs. Actually nagbigay ng pera si Chuck, financial support daw for their baby kaya lang umiral na naman ang 'pride' niya at hindi iyon tinanggap. Bigla namang napaisip si Monique. 'what if I called Chuck for this?' sabi kasi n ito na anytime pwede siyang tumawag dito in case may lakad siya at walang mag-aa laga sa baby. Kaso inunahan na naman siya ng pride niya. Darn that pride of hers . But not until she realized that she'll be late and that leave her no choice bu t to call Chuck, so as did she. In just a snap Chuck is standing in front her house. Yeah, right. Neighbors. "His milk was on the refrigerator, 2 bottles lang 'yun, I kinda' having hard tim e producing milk. If he looks for more milk give him the formulated one, but don 't spoil him. And also, always check his diapers." He's carrying the sleeping baby Nate on his arms while she was saying those thin gs. "Yes, boss." he said grinning. Monique kissed Nate on the forehead before sh e off to go to the photoshoot. *** Monique was so exhausted. Pagod na pagod siya sa photoshoot na inabot na ng mada ling araw. It's already 1 am nang makauwi siya sa bahay. Sinalubong agad siya ni Chuck ng makita siya nito at tinulungan na magbit-bit ng mga gamit. "Why are you still awake?" tanong niya kay Chuck habang umupo siya sa sofa at mi namasahe ang masakit niyang balikat. "I'm a nocturnal. Night life.. I guess." umupo siya sa tabi ni Monique at minasa he ang balikat nito "Feeling better?" "Hmm.. Thanks." Naiilang man hindi na nagawang tumutol pa sa ginagawa ng binata si Monique dahil sobrang pagod na siya at wala na siyang lakas para awayin pa ito. "Sabi ko naman sa'yo, I'll support you both. You don't have to work." "It's okay. Besides, I can still manage." "You can still manage? Eh tignan mo nga ngayon, you're exhausted. Alam mo namang you don't need to do this. Kung pinapabayaan mo lang sana ako sa gusto kong man gyari, diba?" "Chuck? Do we really have to discuss this crap now? I'm tired." "Okay, fine. But promise me you'll think again about my proposal." "Yeah.. I will." um-oo nalang si Monique kay Chuck dahil ang gusto nalang siguro niyang gawin ngayon e ang magpahinga. "Want some thai massage?" "Eh? Marunong ka?" "Sort of." "Sure. Thanks." "Monique, let's race." Chuck blurted out after a long silence. "Huh? I told you I'm tired." "Hindi.. Not now.. maybe tomorrow night?" "Ah-huh? And for sure there's an at stake?" "Well.. yeah." "What is it?" "Let's have a truce." Sandaling napahinto si Chuck sa pagmamasahe sa kanya dahil humarap si Monique at tinitigan ng mabuti sa mukha ang lalaki. "A truce? Hmm.. Sounds pretty good. Okay. I agree." "Really?"

"Hell yeah." she rolled her eyes. "Wow. Thanks." 'yung na lang ang nasabi niya dahil hindi na pala kailangan pang sila ay mag-race para magkaroon ng truce. Chapter 10: Final Chapter. MONIQUE'S POV Kinabukasan.. I was awakened by Nate's cry. Uggh. Kung meron mang bad advantages ang pagiging Mommy, this is totally one of them. Umiiyak pala siya dahil nagugutom. I gave hi m my breast milk kaya lang konti lang kasi nahihirapan akong mag-produce ng milk . I don't also know why. Nung tumigil na si Baby Nate sa pag-iyak, I went to the kitchen habang buhat siy a. May nagluluto, maybe it's Kate. "Kate, what are you cooking--Oh.. What are you doing at.. my kitchen.. Chuck?" I cock my left eyebrow. He's cooking. "Monique! I'm cooking our breakfast. Malapit narin 'to maluto. Umalis nang maaga si Kate." "O-kay.." this guy knows how to cook? Wow. Ako nga hindi marunong magluto. "Here it is. Done!" he prepared the table and served the foods. And in all fairn ess, ang sarap niya magluto. Wala sa looks niya. *KRINGG KRINGG* I stand up and answered the phone. "Hello?" [ Hello, is this Monique Herrera? ] "Who's this?" [ I'm the agent from the modelling company. We need a model. And if you want to- ] "Alright! I'll take it!" [ Okay. So, ang photoshoot mo is 6 pm today sa Zambales. ] "Okay." Ibaba ko na sana kaya lang.. [ And I forgot that's a 3 day shoot--toot toot ] "What?!?" My god! A 3 day shoot?!? How am I supposed to do that?! Walang magbaba ntay kay baby Nate! "What's that?" lumapit si Chuck sakin. "I have a 3 day shoot.. at Zambales.." "Go for it. Ako nang magbabantay kay baby Nate." I glared at him. "Can you produce breastmilk?" "What?! Of course not! I'm a guy!" "See? That's the point. Naka-oo na ko. What am I going to do?" For several seconds nagtitigan lang kami. Bigla siyang nag-smile. Uh-oh. I hate that smile. "We'll go with you!" "WHAT?!?" *** At yun nga ang nangyari. Sumama siya with baby Nate sa photoshoot ko. We stayed in a hotel. One room lang kami BUT two bedrooms. Siya daw mag-aalaga kay baby Na te pag nagshoo-shoot ako. 15 minutes before 6 pm nasa hotel na kami. Pinatawag n a kami before the sunset. Ayun daw 'yung kailangan nilang background because it' s a magazine cover for summer edition. "No way, Monique!" "Yes way, Chuck!" "No!" "Yes!" "No! You wouldn't" "Yes! I would!" "No. You couldn't do that!" "Yes. I could do that." "No, Monique. NO!" "What's the problem with that? It's part of my job!" "Even if it's part of your job or not you.wouldn't.do.that! Pano nalang kung pag laki ni baby Nate makita niya 'yun? What he'll gonna say?"

"Nate is almost a month old, Chuck. Matagal pa 'yun! And he'll not see it. Ano b a talagang problema dun?" "Monique! Kahit anong sabihin mo hindi ka magpo-pose ng half naked dun. I'll cal l their company to cancel the shoot or better yet you'll back out." "No. I'll do that job. May body paint naman eh." bubuksan ko na sana yung pinto para lumabas pero.. he slammed the door close. "CHUCK!" now I'm really mad at him. "Kahit magalit ka pa, hindi ka lalabas ng pinto na yan para gawin yung shoot na yun." "Huwaaah!!" nagkatinginan kami at nag-unahan kay baby Nate na nakahiga at umiiya k sa kama. Kanina lang tulog siya. "See? Even baby Nate didn't want you to do that photoshoot." then binuhat niya s i baby Nate at hinele. "He cried because you shouted at the top of your lungs. Stupidiot." I rolled my eyes. "Don't you dare call me that." he glared at me. "What? Pati ba naman 'yun big deal?" "Of course." "Whatever, Chuck. Whatever." Tinitigan ko lang siya habang hinehele at bine-baby talk pa si baby Nate. At nak aisip ako ng way kung pano tatakas. I hastily run to the door, I even take off m y stilettos. "MONIQUEEE!!!" Hoo. And it worked. I hurriedly walk to the elevator and went to the set. Grabe. I've never run that fast ever since. On time naman dumating ako sa set. They've started to paint my upper half body, buti nalang babae 'yung painter and 'yung photographer ay gay. And I'm thankful dahil nasa isa kaming private resort which is konti lang ang tao. All was set. Ako nalang ang hinihintay para makapag-shoot na. Pumunta na ko kung saan ako magpo-pose. Huhubarin ko na sana 'yung suot kong robe.. "MONIQUE!!!" Epilogue "MONIQUE!!" automatic akong napalingon sa tumawag sakin. Isang lalaki ang papala pit. He's actually running towards me. And.. I don't know him. "Monique.." he said nang makarating siya sa harap ko. "Excuse me? Do I know you--Oh. Nevermind. But, can't you see? We have a shoot. S o, can you please.. set aside? Baka magalit kasi yung photographer eh." "That's alright. Hindi siya magagalit." "Seriously? Ano ba talagang kailangan mo?" I crossed my arms. Sino ba talaga 'tong lalaking 'to? Panggulo. Hindi kami makapag-umpisa ng shoot. Buti nalang busy pa 'yung photographer sa pagkalikot sa cam niya. Tinignan niya lang ako. I don't even got an answer from him. The next na ginawa niya.. TINALIKURAN AKO?!? Yeah, he turned his back and clapped a couple of times that caughts the attention of all the people here. "Everybody, listen! She's not doing it. Better pack up now." What?! What did he just said? I'm not doing it? Nakita ko nalang na aligaga sa p agliligpit ng mga gamit lahat ng crew and staffs. Hinawakan ko siya sa balikat niya to face me "Hey, hey.. What do you think you'r e doing?" He just shrugged "Let's go." then he drag me to somewhere. "Wear this." may ibinigay siyang paper bag sakin. Andito kami sa isang cottage. Malapit lang din sa beach. And.. I don't really understand why I'm obeying him. Lahat ng pinapagawa niya, ginagawa ko naman. Para kasing if you don't obey him, you're dead. Nawala nga yung pagkamaldita ko eh. So do I as I'm told. Pumunta ko sa katabing restroom ng cottage at doon nagbihis . I found a dress and flat shoes inside the paper bag. "Done?" "Yes, but--" he cutted me off by dragging me.. again. After a few minutes I see myself sitting at his passenger's seat for no reason. Huminto ang kotse niya infront of a restaurant. Pinagbuksan niya ko ng pinto. I'

m a little pissed because I don't know what's really happening. He guided me inside the restaurant. Then I saw Chuck and my baby sitting in a ta ble We walked to them. Humila itong guy na kasama ko kanina ng isang chair kaharap s i Chuck. Tinignan ko si Chuck habang umuupo ako and he's staring at me too. Tapo s.. bigla ba namang nang-irap? Wow. Just wow. I just rolled my eyes too. Parang ewan lang. I saw the guy and Chuck nodded at each other. O-kay. What's really happening? Th ey know each other? Umalis na 'yung guy kami nalang ni Chuck ang naiwan. Baby Na te is also there. He's in a stroller beside his father. "What--" "Waiter!" magsasalita na sana ko nang biglang tinawag naman ni Chuck 'yung waite r? Seriously? Ayaw niya kong pagsalitain? Nag-order siya ng food for us. He didn't even bother to ask me what I want! Uggh . Nang makaalis na 'yung waiter.. "Chuck--" "What baby? Are you hungry? Why?" now, he's talking at Baby Nate, ignoring me as if I wasn't here. Tell me, am I invisible?! Really?! Arrggh. "Listen--" "Baby, tell your Mom don't talk to me because I'm mad at her. Hmm.. 'Kay?" Woah. Okay, he's mad. Now I know. "Hey, you're mad because of earlier? Kasi tinakasan kita?" tumingin siya ulit sa kin tapos.. inirapan ulit ako. And I have to admit it, he's cute when doing that . "Hey.. Chuck.." I called his name so many times to catch his attention but it's no used. "Baby Nate, I just wish you'll don't inherit your Mom's attitude. I said don't t alk to me but she's keep on talking." My googness! For crist sake! What am I gon na do with this man infront of me? He's still and kept ignoring me. And..it's ki lling me to hell. "Alright, if you're mad because of--" "Baby, tell your Mom she's annoying. Even though I really really love her, I can 't imagine what I can do to her, if she'll kept on talking." And because of that, I zipped my mouth. I thought I wouldn't be able to hear tho se words from him again. He said again that he loves me. Dumating ang order namin. We both eat in silence. I'm just thinking some things. "Baby Nate, please tell you Dad.. I love him too." he was taken aback by that. Haha. Nakakatawa 'yung facial expression niya. Shocked is trace a ll over his face. He even froze for a while. "What did you say?!" tumayo siya at lumapit sa tabi ko. "What?! I didn't say anything.." "You said it!" "Said what?!" "You said you loves me too!" his dimples is shown, he has a very wide smile. "Did I said that?!" "C'mon, Monique! You said it! Say it again, please? Please?" what in the world? He's pouting! Gosh! "Nah-uh. I won't." "Please? Please please? Say it again please? Say you love me!" "Fine.." I stand up to level my self to him, though he's taller than me. I wrap my hands around his neck and gave him my sweetest smile I place my mouth near hi s ear "I love you too, Chuck Perez." I whispered that to him. "God! I love you, Monique! You don't how happy I am! Thank you, sweetie. Thanks. " and our lips met and we kissed with all passion. End of Season 1 May mga bagay na talaga na kailangang isugal, we have to be brave to faced those . At gaya ni Monique, naging matapang siya. Pinili niyang palakihin ang baby niy a ng mag-isa. Pero hindi kailangan lagi mong haharapin ng mag-isa ang mga pagsub ok dahil minsan kahit gaano ka pa katapang, susuko at suko ka parin. Kakailangan
