"Do you know what I wanted to be when I was young?"

I furrowed my eyebrows as he suddenly brought up such question. His eyes were filled with unreadable emotions that I had never seen before.

"I wanted to be an engineer. I wanted to build houses, buildings, tall and huge buildings, schools, bridges and every structure you see around you. That was really my dream then." He sighed and gave me a sad smile.

"If so, why didn't you pursue your dream?"

"Because I took business."

He stopped and looked at the buildings located near the beach. They had lights that seemed to dance and glimmer in the vast, noisy and non-sleeping city of Los Angeles. And as if showing and reminding him of his childhood dream.

"I am the eldest child, and although I have become the youngest, I am sure that I will still take care of the company, since I am the man between us."

"Does your sister knows about it?" I asked, also looking at the huge buildings he was looking at, which seemed to talk and compete which of them is the highest and which is not.

"I think so." He shrugged. "So even though I wanted to be an engineer back then, I had no choice but to take a business course because that was what my parents wanted for me."

A sad smile crept on my lips as I heard the word 'parents.

"But you're still lucky because you have parents while growing up. You also have Nanay Emily and Tatay Berto." I sighed and uttered the next words silently... -'Unlike me.'-

"Well, you had a point there." He smiled. "Let's go."

"Where are you taking me?"

"Relax, we will get there."

We continued to walk until we reached a small cabin. At first, I thought it was just an ordinary cabin with one room and a small sitting area inside, but my mouth hung open the moment he turned on the lights.

It was a fully furnished modern house inside, with a complete set of furniture, a mini kitchen, two bedrooms, and a secret underground room.

"Whoa! This place is nice and cosy."

"I have something to show you." Then he took my hand again as he pulled me towards the kitchen.

"Where are we going?"

He suddenly stopped and to my surprise, he gave me a peck on my lips.

"From now on, I will also kiss you when you ask me again that question." He said grinning and opened the small door we found in the back of the house.

"Are you sure you're not sick?" I asked rolling my eyes.

"I'm not sick, sweetheart, because you were my best nurse."

"Really? Then what happened to Daniel Kelley I met a few months ago?"

"Don't worry, he's still here and I'm going to show you the real Daniel later."

Why do I feel like he meant something else?


"This is my favorite place when I was in college, when I wanted to be alone and when I was stressed thinking about how I will manage the company. And there's only one person who knew about this, and that is Rian."

"How about your parents?"

"No, they didn't know about this."

"Until now?"

He nodded.

"Then why did you bring me here? Why do you want to show me your secret room?"

"Because you're part of my life now, you're my wife."

I gulped upon hearing those words. And thank God, he didn't

ugged and I chuckled.

"What do you mean, you don't know what I did to you?" I raised my eyebrow and stood in front of him. "Why, Mr. Kelley, are you now falling in love with me?"

He looked at me and sneered. "I really like how you repeatedly mentioned my name, sweetheart."

My eyes widened and I gasped as he neared a step but I immediately took a step back.

"I was just distracted, that shouldn't be counted!"

"No, what did I tell you while we're still travelling here? I will just count them and ask you to pay when we get here. And as I remembered, you mentioned my name more than 10 times, oh no, it's fifteen!"

"Huh! You're exaggerated! I only mentioned it twice!" I said, my eyes double its size.

"Well, I'm sorry to say that it has interest, sweetheart." He continued to chase me and I just walked around the mini table.

"Interest? Are you crazy? Mentioning your name was not a kind of loan!"

He just laughed at me. "Whatever you call it, sweetheart. It's now paying time!"

And that's what we did for almost five minutes, I was running away from him but he continued to chase me.

And when I thought he already stopped, I was surprised when he suddenly grabbed me from behind.


I screamed in shock and he immediately put me down, turning me to face him.



My breath hitched when he put his index finger on my lips.

"You really wanted me to kiss you, huh?" He smirked.

"Of course, not-----." And that's it!

My words died in my throat when he cupped my face and kissed me. I felt my stomach churning because of the sudden sensation he brought me through his kiss.

At first, it was a soft kiss, not a demanding one, it's like he was testing if I am going to stop him, but when I didn't, he deepened it slowly. And it took me a few seconds to realize that I am now returning his kiss.

I close my eyes and feel the intensity of his kiss. I felt his hand around my waist and he pulled me closer to him. I don't understand exactly how I feel, it's hard to explain. But there is one thing I'm sure of at this moment...

I am falling in love with him.
