I met her when she was a teenager. Although she’s trying to hide her wealth, she stood different from the crowd, she just can’t. Her eyes are observant, her face is angelic, and her name is Saint Gatchalian.
I met her during the time I was nothing.
I don’t have a name. I don’t have a family. I don’t have anything to offer.
So, I did what I thought was best for her- I declined her friendship and pushed her away.
And now, seeing her after all these years made me questioned myself if I did what was best for her. If going away without looking back was the best thing I did, then why does my heart aches when she smiles for another man?View Book
When Mindy felt that she was in love with the blind casanova, Adam, all she wanted was to run away from him and forget her idiotic principle of helping him until he gets back his vision. If she could endure before his treatment to her, its because she was guilty and had to pay her debt for what she thought she did wrong to him and to his dead fiancee.

And she fell hard.

Paano kung binigyan ka ng isa pang pagkakataon na umibig muli, pakakawalan mo pa ba kahit sinasabi ng iba na hindi na dapat? Paano kung binigyan ka ng isa pang pagkakataon na maranasan ang mga pinanghihinayangan mong hindi mo nagampanan, itatapon mo lang ba dahil sa sinasabi ng iba?
Teka, ang malaking tanong talaga, paano mo liligawan ang babaeng ayaw magpaligaw? Paano mo hahabulin ang babaeng on the run palagi? At paano… paano ba ang magmahal?View Book
“I am more disappointed by this, Ms Monteverde.”
I tried not to show any emotion when he addressed me. I wanted to ask where is Gin that I know? I wanted to smile bitterly.
Wala na pala yon.
He is gone.
A long time ago.
The man that I am looking right now is none other than Governor Eugenio Carlos De Villa. The ruthless Governor who replaced his father six years ago. He is running his second term now. And he is a stranger.
I looked at him straight to his eyes. “There is nothing that I have to hide Governor. My business is legal and I have not violate any rules or contract. I do not think it is necessary for your office to shut down my mall operation,” I said in a colder voice.
He lifted a brow matapos tingnan ako ng ilang saglit. He smiled mischievously.
“Sa tingin mo Ms Monteverde? But I can do more than damage that you could ever imagine,” nakangising sabi nito.
I hate this man that I am seeing right now.
Hindi ko siya kilala.
I know people changed.
But he changed into a different man.
A ruthless man.
“Are you threatening me Governor? Don’t ever think you could threaten me ng ganito ganito lamang. Baka nakakalimutan mo na Monteverde ang kaharap mo. And I don’t succumb easily.”
But deep inside I was in battle. Dahil ayoko ng magulo. Ayoko ng gulo. Umuwi lamang ako ng Pilipinas para asikasuhin ang negosyo ni Papa na nagkaka problema sa probinsya ni Gin. Ito lamang ang dahilan ng pag uwi niya.
I have to go back. Pati ang mommy ko ay nag aalala na sa pag uwi ko sa Pilipinas. I assured her that I will come back in no time.
He smirked. Itinutok na nito ang paningin sa ginagawang pagpirma sa papeles.
“If that’s the case, then you can go now Ms Monteverde. Hintayin mo na lamang ang demolition team na ipapadala ko sa site.”
Napatiim ang labi ko.
He is using his power and authority para matakot ako.
And I am no fool para ipakita iyon sa kanya.
Tumalikod na ako. Nasa pintuan na ako when he called me again.
“Ms Monteverde, if it matters to you that much, ang business ng daddy mo then I have a proposition.”
Malamig na nilingon ko siya.
Ang lakas ng loob na siya pa mag offer ng proposition! Kanina nananakot lamang siya, ngayon ito pa nagbibigay ng dahilan para makipag areglo.
“Whatever it is I am not interested, Governor.”
Galit na tinitigan niya ako. “You don’t understand the situation do you Ms Monteverde? Kaya kong ipa demolish ang apat na mall na nasa siyudad na nasasakupan ko and influence the 20 more branches that MGM has all over the country.”
Is he insane?
What is his plan? Tuluyang i shut down ang MGM?
Nagpupuyos ang kaloobang hinarap ko siya. “Ano ba ang kailangan mo sa akin Governor? Pera? How much! Magsabi ka lamang!” galit na galit na sabi ko.
He laughed mirthlessly. Na tila ba naaliw ito sa pagwawala ko. Ito naman ang gusto niya ang tuluyan akong magalit sa ginagawa niya. It makes him happy!
“I like it more. That kind of fire that I have been missing,” he said sarcastically.
I drew a deep breath. Ang makipagtalo sa kanya ay walang katuturan.
“What do you want?” I asked coldly. “What do I have to give para tigilan mo ang panggugulo sa MGM?”
He playfully roll his pen on the desk na tila ba nag iisip. Naglalaro sa labi nito ang isang ngisi.
“I am getting married three months from now.”
Alam ko na yon.
Bago pa ako umuwi ng Pilipinas.
Alam ko na ikakasal na siya.
Pero masakit pa rin pala kapag narinig mo mismo sa bibig niya.
Mas masakit pa rin kumpara sa kumpirmasyon ng isang espiya na inupahan niya na subaybayan ito sa malayo.
I tried to show na wala lamang sa akin iyon. It should be.
Pero masakit pa rin.
Gumuguhit pa rin sa buong pagkatao ko.
“And so?” taas ang noong sabi ko. I have to hold on to my little pride left.
Kahit iyon na lamang.
He looked at me.
“I want you to share my bed within that three months,” walang kakurap kurap nitong sabi.
Kailangan ko na titigan siya ng matagal.
O kurutin ang sarili ko para lamang i assure na tama ang pagkakarinig ko.
Share his bed?
Share his bed.
Share his f**king bed!
Unti unti kumakalat ang pamumula ng mukha ko.
Its like a hot liquid fire that slowly eating me up.
“Y-You must be insane,” I said, aghast. “P-Para sabihin mo sa akin yan,” sa nanginginig na tinig ay sabi ko.
Treat me this low.
As if isa akong mumurahing babae. As if…I am no more than a prostitute selling herself in every shaded and dark corner of the street.
I wanted to cry. But I will make him even more happy.
Para maipakita ko na nasasaktan ako sa sinasabi niya.
He lifted a brow. “Anong masama sa proposisyon ko Ms Monteverde? You don’t mean to deny me don’t you? After all, we shared exquisite pleasure in bed, together. And I must admit I want to see if you could still make me lose all my control,” he said sarcastically. At higit akong nasasaktan sa sinasabi niya.
Napangiti lamang ako ng mapakla. Kasabay ng hindi pagkapaniwalang tawa.
“Do you think, I will stoop that low Governor?” sarkastikong sabi ko. “You want to ruin me, then do it. I’ll see you in court,” malamig kong sabi.
Hindi ako papatalo sa kanya.
Napatiim ang bagang ni Gin.
“I know you have a son.”
Pakiramdam ko nanlamig ako ng sobra.
Awtomatikong napabalik sa kanya ang nanlalaki kong mga mata. Kasabay ng pagtahip ng dibdib.
He was glad to see that kind of reaction.
“I want you in my bed, Alexandra Monteverde. And I promise I will never lay my hand to your son and your company. Just pleasure me in bed.”
Nangingipos na napahawak na lamang ako sa seradura ng pintuan. Pakiramdam ko nanlambot ng tuluyan ang aking mga tuhod.
Pakiramdam ko mamamatay ako kapag pinakialaman ni Gin ang aking anak.
My son is my only treasure that I will never let anyone to take away from me. Kahit ako na lamang ang masaktan.
Huwag lamang ang anak namin.
Ngayon, mukhang higit kong pinagbabayaran ang aking nakaraan.View Book

Bringing Joy Through Our Stories
When I thought about it last year, I had two things in mind; provide more stories to the VIP members and open the mind of the Filipino community that Filipino writers deserved to get paid for their works. You just have to expose these writers. I have the platform and was blessed to have the opportunity, then why not open it to other Filipino writers? It’s a simple thought. You don’t have to be rich or famous to offer an opportunity. Just make it happen.
