About: Healing a broken heart
When: October 2013
A year after the death of Lian Navarro's fiance, she met the cold heartless James Naval who came knocking in her new apartment in town; drunk. She hated his guts and he hated her for buying the apartment he used to live with the love of his life. But as days passed they found each other's company soothing and they came into an understanding. What would happen if Fate decides it's time for them to play the game so called Love? Will she ever find the guy her fiance told her about in James? Will he ever find peace in his heart and move on? In the end will they both say the three words "Finally Found You"?
Lumabas ako ng opisino niya dahil lalo lang akong naiirita sa kanya. Nakakainis talaga siya. Akala mo kung sino!
“Pagpasensyahan mo na si Sir James ah” napatingin ako sa secretary ni Sir James. "HIndi naman ganyan dati si sir eh, sa totoo nga ang bait bait niyan dati kaso naging masungit at mainitin yung ulo niya." pagdadahilan niya sa amo niya. "24 kasi ngayon kaya siguro dumoble yung init ng ulo ni sir ngayon." dagdag pa niya.
Anong meron sa 24? May dalawa ba siya katulad ng mga babae? Sus. Kung alam ko lang araw-araw may dalaw talaga yang si Sir James.
Hindi ako sumagot kaya siguro akala ni Cassie ay gusto kong ituloy niya yung pagkukwento niya tungkol kay Sir James. "Limang buwan na simula nung May 24." May 24, ang araw ng kasal dapat namin ni Troy at ang araw ng kasal ni Sir James dun kay Mary. "Siguro nga hindi parin niya kaya." sabi nito. Anong hindi pa niya kaya? "Siguro nga kung ako rin naman ang naiwan sa altar talagang magbabago rin ako." dagdag nito.
Gulat akong napatingin sa kanya, iniwan si Sir James sa altar? Pero bakit? Mukhang masayang masaya siya nung araw na iyon? Anong nangyari para iwanan siya ni Mary?
Fate's Cruel Intervention Series IV
About: Arranged Marriage
Angel Jhonson was forced to marry Jared Naval because of their parents' company. They were both young when the marriage was agreed upon the investors. She knew Jared was not in love with her but he doesn't know that she was. Two years later, they are still married but due to some circumstances they were forced to work on their marriage. But can they really save their marriage when every time they grew close together something big would make them grow apart? What if Fate got bored in the middle of the game? In this last battle between true love and fate, who would win? Will Fate finally give up in its own game?
I was going to the ladies' room, tonight was our rehearsal dinner and it was really boring. Too many people conratgulating Jared and I for the wedding tomorrow. While I was outside the ladies' room, I heard voices, I really didn't want to eavesdrop to the couple arguing inside but what could I do? I didn't want to go back to the ballroom and fake a smile to everyone.
"Red, I don't want to be the other woman! I don't want to live my life as your mistress." I knew that voice all too well. It was Alexis and she sounded like she was on the verge of crying.
I didn't need to guess who was with her inside. I knew that too. "Hindi ka naman magiging kabit Alex. Hindi mangyayari yun. Promise ko sayo." Jared said.
"How Red? Kakasal ka na bukas! Red, once na ikasal ka hindi mo na mahihiwalayan si Angel!" Alexis was right, once Jared marry me, there was no turning back now. There was so much at stake if we ever end our marriage.
"Alex, give me three years. Babalik ako sayo Alex. Tatlong taon lang at aayusin ko yung kompanya nila dad at mapapapayag ko sila na i-annul namin ni Angel yung kasal namin." Jared sounded determined and it hurt me a bit. Hurt me because he was already planning an escape while I would still be stuck.
"Jared, hindi ko kayang maghintay ng ganun katagal. Sabi mo sa akin dati pag grumaduate na tayo, magpapakasal na tayo."
"Then two years. Two years lang Alex. Pangako." It really did hurt me, I was hurting because even when I didn't want to marry Jared, I never thought of leaving him so soon. I planned on honoring my vows to him but of course, sino nga ba ako para humadlang sa kanila? Mahal nila ang isa't isa.
"Ayokong maghintay Red. Kung ako talaga ang mahal mo, wag mo siyang pakasalan." Alexis said. She was my cousin but how could she do that? How could she ask Jared not to marry me when she knew what was at stake? "Runaway with me, Red."
"I do love you Alex, you know that."
That was my cue to leave. Hindi ko namalayan na may tumulo palang mga luha kanina kaya pinunasan ko agad ito bago ako tumalikod at naglakad palayo. Jared would not be coming tomorrow. I knew that. Mahal niya si Alexis. Pumunta ako sa garden ng hotel at nagpahangin nalang muna.
This must be fate's cruel twist on all of us. Jared would leave me on the altar just like what mom did to Tito James.

“I’m going to divorce him Tyler.” I told him. It was a decision I made while I was in New York with my family, I felt envious with Will’s family. I wanted that too.
I wanted a man who would love me. A man who would share his problems with me. I wanted that kind of man. I didn’t want a man who didn’t love me anymore and showed no interest in me.
“Why? She’s dead Caro.”
I nodded. “But I can’t do this anymore Tyler. It’s been two years and it feels like I’m still waiting for my husband to come back to me Tyler. He’s been back for two years but it feels like he’s not here with me.” I let the tear fall. “I can’t do this anymore.”
“Do you know what’s his doing right now?” I asked Tyler. “He’s back in the house with someone else. I just can’t take the humiliation over and over again Tyler. It’s funny because you soldiers honor your duty but why can’t he honor the vow he made with me?”
Tyler stood up and went to my side, he hugged me and patted my shoulder. “Let it out Caro.” He said. “I’m here.”
“I wanted my husband back and I tried so hard to reach him. I accepted the rejection every time because I believed he would come back. I’m just so tired.” I cried. “In the process of saving him, I forgot about myself.”
“Are you sure you want to do this Caro?” Tyler asked me. “There’s no turning back once you decide.”
I nodded. “I am also a human. There’s a limit on how much I could endure and I have enough Tyler. He doesn’t need me but I need myself now.”
“Then leave him if you want to. I just want you happy Caroline.” Tyler told me.
“I just want to be happy too.”

Hindi alam ni Julie kung anong isasagot niya sa asawa niya, bakit kasi bigla nalang iyon tinanong ng anak niya? Matagal na din hindi nagtatanong si Ace tungkol sa nangyari dati pero bakit naalala niya ulit?
Akala niya nabaon na iyon sa limot, hindi pa pala. Ano nalang ang sasabihin niya?
“It’s nothing Damon. Gusto lang magkakapatid ni Ace, so sabi ko sa kanya soon.” Sagot niya dito.
“Paano siya magkakaroon ng kapatid kung ayaw naman ng ina niya.” Damon murmured pero rinig parin ni Julie iyon. Sa loob ng limang taon nilang pagsasama eto lagi ang pinagtatalunan nila. Lagi nalang siyang sinisisi ni Damon.
Julie stood up not wanting to have another argument with Damon, nasa harap sila ng hapagkainan at ni Ace pati na din ng mga kasambahay. Lumapit ito kay Ace at hinalikan sa pisngi “Aalis na si mommy. Bye bye baby.” Tumango lang si Ace dahil kumakain parin ito ng pancake niya. “Manang paki sabi kay mommy dadaan kami ni Ace mamaya.” Naglakad na siya paalis ng dining room.
Nasa may foyer na siya nang biglang tinawag siya ni Damon “Juliet.”
“What Damon?” naiinis niyang tanong dito “Magtatalo na naman ba tayo tungkol dito?”
“Bakit hindi? Limang taon na Juliet at wala parin tayong anak!” Damon said to her.
“May anak na tayo! Si Ace!” Julie said.
“He’s not your son Juliet.” Damon told her. Parang binuhusan siya ng malamig na tubig. Ou nga naman hindi siya ang ina ni Ace, hindi sa kanya lumabas yung bata pero siya naman ang nagpalaki dito diba? Siya ang nakasulat na ina, siya ang kinikilala ng bata. Pero haggang ngayon hindi parin ba tatanggpin iyon ni Damon?

“Juliet, that’s not what I meant with that. Ang ibig ko lang sabihin, I want a child with you. You promised me a family 5 years ago. Pero paano tayo magkakaroon ng anak kung dalawang taon na ang nakalipas simula nung pumayag kang hawakan kita?” Damon said. “Dalawang taon ka ng parang nandidiri sa akin Julie.” He added.
For two years, walang nangyari kay Julie at Damon dahil ayaw ni Julie, dahil para siyang nandidiri sa asawa nito. Ayaw niya at simula din nun naging malamig na din ang trato niya kay Damon.
“You should have thought of that before you slept with another woman.” Julie told him.

“Next.” I said trying hard not to sound harsh to the girl who danced so poorly, it was so boring I could take a nap. She walked out of the gym and the next came in. We all looked in disbelief as the girl walked towards us.
“I think you’re in the wrong room.” Lily said as if trying to say it without really offending the girl.
“But…. This is….” The girl started.
“This is the try out for cheerleaders, my dear.” Grace said. “And you’re no fit for a cheerleader.”
“I… I can dance…” the girl stammered.
“Dancing is not the only criteria for being a cheerleader.” I said, it was my turn. “You have to have a body like ours.” I smirked and looked at her, she was not a cheerleader material, she was fat. No offense with fat people but really? Who can lift her up with our routines? “Now, go and go to the weightlifters club and maybe lose some weight.” I grinned.

I was drying my hair when the door opened suddenly, nagulat pa ako, kaya tinignan ko kung sino yung nagbukas at si Charlie lang pala.
“Charlie may kailangan ka ba? Teka lang tata--" hindi ko na natapos ang sasabihin ko kasi hinila ako patayo ni Charlie at he pinned me down the wall and he started kissing me torridly.
Hindi ako makagalaw, I was frozen.
Nung nagkalas na ako I tried to push him pero hindi siya nagpatalo, hinawakan niya ang dalawa kong kamay.
“Cha--" I tried to stop him but I really can’t.
Why was he kissing me?
I wasn’t responding to his kisses but when he bit my lower lip I gasped and that made his tongue enter. Little by little, I don’t know what got to me but I was liking his kissing, and I found myself responding to every kiss.
He loosened the grip of his hands and now his hands were on my waist as my hands were now encircled in his neck and I pulled him closer to me.
I don't know how we ended up in the bed and now he was on top of me and he was still kissing me, our kiss were getting deeper and I am really liking the sensation.
He unbuttoned my top and he putted his hand in one of my breast and he started to squeeze it which made me moan in pleasure, he unclasped my bra and he cupped one of my breast as he kissed me. His other hand were travelling my body, he started caressing my thigh.
I slid my hands inside his shirt and started to touch his body, he on the other hand stopped caressing my thigh, and he slipped his hand inside my pajama along with my underwear.
Before he could touch me down there, I immediately pulled him up for a kiss, maybe I was still in my senses but I couldn’t stop the sensation and the pleasure. I was enjoying every bits of it.
When I felt that something down him was poking my stomach that’s where all my senses came back to me.
“Charlie…” I called him but he was too busy kissing my neck. “Charlie… stop.” I said.
He was drunk and this is wrong.
Mali dahil he’s my nephew. I am his aunt and I allowed him to kiss me and touch me.
It’s wrong because I started to like and enjoy it.
