Satoshi's POV

The hurt and pain in her eyes was too much for me to bear. She pleaded him to hear her out but he walked out on her. He did not even look back.

Does this mean she really loves him? Will I still be able to win her back? Is there still a place for us in her life?

The next scenario happened so quickly.

Riya was dragged by Kyle's mom out of the restaurant hurling demeaning words at her.

Jaja and I ran after them. It was a good thing that Riya's mom was not in attendance due unforeseeable circumstances.

"I never want to see you near my son again." Kyle's mother screamed as she pushed Riya inside the elevator.

Jaja and I hurriedly got in just as Riya broke down and cried.

Jaja hugged her friend saying nothing as we descended to the ground floor. She hailed a cab and as they were getting in…

" Riya, I…" I began

" Satoshi not tonight, please." Jaja said shaking her head.

I closed the cab's door and watched it speed off.

What have I done? I thought.

This is not how I wanted to win her back. I don't want her to hate me. I want to feel her love once more.

I am not giving up. I have to win her back not just for Shin's sake but for my sanity as well.

Riya's POV

It has been almost 6 months since that fateful day. A lot has happened.

Ever since that night I have not talked to Kyle. He would not answer my calls. He has suddenly taken an indefinite leave of absence from the hospital. I tried going to his apartment only to be escorted out by the guards. It seems like his mother has ordered them not to let me in. And if that isn't bad enough, I was suddenly "dismissed" from the hospital for unknown reasons.

Well I was waiting for that to actually happen since Kyle's parents are major stock holders of the hospital.

I tried applying at different hospitals but all I get are " we do not have any vacancy as of the moment." Which is quite unbelievable since I know for a fact that there is a shortage of nurses. I guess the clout of Kyle's parents not only covers the hospital where I work but the entire state. Since no hospital was willing to hire me. I resorted to working as a cashier at a grocery store aside from my job at the Nursing home. The pay was not near to what I was earning before but I was able to get by. Jaja and my mom even suggested that I move to a different state but it was just not an option for me, not just yet.

Ever since that night Satoshi has not stopped in his attempt to talk to me. He would wait for me outside of our apartment and accompany me to work, he would wait outside until I'm done and accompany me back home. He was ok with that. I did not talk to him. He would just follow me. Jaja said he was fine with it. He just wanted to make sure I was ok.

I was not ok. I was hurt. I felt betrayed by Satoshi. I wanted top be the one to tell Kyle. I owed it to him, all the time we were together he was a good boyfriend, annoying at times but over all he was good to me. He never hurt me. I wanted to talk to him, for closure.

I do not know why but the more I see Satoshi each day, the lesser the hate I feel for him. I pity him actually, not talking to him, but I wa

s afraid. Afraid that if I talk to him, I could give in to that feeling I had buried deep down. Every time he visits the apartment, it was only Jaja who would talk to him. I could hear him talk about Shin, there were times that he would call Shin and I could hear my son ask about me. My heart felt like it was being crushed every time I hear him cry. I wanted to get him but I know that Satoshi would not allow it. I know I could fight it out in court but I do not want to expose my son to that trauma. Plus, he is way better off with his dad. Satoshi could provide for him.

One afternoon, I was having a late lunch with Jaja when out of the blue I asked.

"Ja, how come he's still here? Doesn't he have commitments in Japan?" I asked.

"Don't get excited. I was only asking because he's been here like what? More than 6 months? I know he has

Commitments." I added.

"Hmmm… you really want to know?"

"It's not that I really wanna know. I'm just curious. And who's taking care of Shin?'

"His mom is taking care of Shin. And sometimes Kenji volunteers to take care of him."

"So what about his job?"

"He… uhmmm…"

"What?"

"He quit the band." Jaja replied softly.

"WHAT?"

"He quit the band. Well all of them actually. They decided to disband. Go their separate ways and pursue what they wanted to pursue."

"Why did he do that? They've been together for more than 15 years and they are at the peak of their careers."

"Well maybe there is something more important to him than his career." She replied looking at me.

I said nothing.

"Riya, don't you think it's time to give him another chance? Maybe this time it's going to work out just fine. I think he has suffered enough."

"I don't know Ja."

"Well maybe you could start by talking to him. Or maybe by talking to Shin."

"I don't know. I don't want to make mistakes Ja. I've been making them my whole life. I just can't include my son in case I make the same mistakes again."

"You know what was his wish on his last birthday?" She asked

"He wished that his mom would not forget about him. You see Riya, your son misses you. He has been waiting all his life." She added

" I know Ja, but I'm not sure if I want to be with his dad."

"Ja…"

"What… I do not like that tone… that tone usually means you are about to do something stupid."

"I need to clear my head."

"Ok… you want to go for a massage?" She asked

"No, not that. I'm thinking of going away for a while."

"I knew it. What's going on in that head of yours Riya? The last time you went to clear your head, you literally cleared your head. You had amnesia remember? So what are you talking about going and clearing your head?"

"Ja, I need this. I need to do a lot of thinking. I want to know what I really want. What I really need to do."

"Can't you do that here? If you want to move states then we'll move but I'm not letting you go alone."

"Ja, please…"

"My answer is still no. If I have to tie you down I will. I'm not risking it. Who knows we might not be able to find you this time." She said with finality as she stood up and went inside her room.

I'm sorry Ja, but I need to do this.
