Sophia's POV:

"Is zoning out your new hobby?"

I didn't have to turn around to know who the owner of that voice was, because based on his very familiar cologne and the erratic beats of my heart, I know it's him. Daniel Kelley.

But I didn't look at him. I just sighed and continued to watch the sunset from the veranda.

"I saw you from the gate when I parked my car. You seemed lost in your thoughts." He said as I felt him stand next to me.

I just threw him a glance from the corner of my eyes before looking back at the sky which is now the color of mixed orange, yellow and blue. And I couldn't help but heaved another sigh.

Sunrise and sunset. They were like a person's life. Sunrise is when you are born and sunset is when you are near to reach your destination. No matter what you do, there will come a time that you will reach the sunset in your life. It's just that people assigned differently in reaching it. Some people reached it early, some were victims of accidents while others are through illness, like my father.

It's been a week since Daniel bought the company and showed me the CCTV footage from seven years ago, and since then, Dad's condition has worsened as days goes by.

"Are you thinking about the case?"

I heard him ask again and this time I turned to him and shook my head.

"I wasn't thinking about it. I was thinking about Dad's health. I don't know how we can live again without him." I sighed and let out a sad smile. "Yes, we left him, but this time is different. Now it is he who will leave us, not only will he leave, but he will be gone forever."

I avoided his gaze when my tears began to flow. And I didn't protest when he took my hand and wiped my tears using his thumb.

"I'm here and I will always be here. I will help you stand and recover from it." He said cupping my cheek.

"I wish I have known before. I wish I hadn't left him alone. It's my fault----"

"No! Don'

rned to look at him but I didn't say anything. I stared at his beautiful orbs that silently hoping to hear my answer. But what would I answer him if I, myself didn't know yet how to answer that question.

"Why would you want to stay in my present?" I asked instead.

"Because I love you."

I was stunned in my post for a few seconds, not knowing what to say and my mouth hanging in mid-air.

"I love you, Sophia. I know you wouldn't believe me but I do, I love you. Be my wife, but this time it's for real. No agreement, no deal and no contract."

I took a deep breath and gave him a slight smile. This is my most awaited moment, to hear from his lips that he also feels the same and he loves me too, but I don't know what is happening to me. I should be happy, I should be jumping for excitement and I should be celebrating at this moment...

But no...

It's just that I couldn't feel any of it or I just don't know how to balance what I feel and what should I feel first. He's here standing in front of me, confessing his love, but my father is in his room, with an IV and different types of tubes connected to his weak and now pale body. He's dying in any hour of the day, any minute or in a single batt of an eyelash.

Tears began to flow again. Should I be celebrating?
