~~~ And should they tell you, you'll never pull through, don't hesitate, stand tall and say; 'I can make it through the rain. I can stand up once again, on my own and I know that I'm strong enough to mend. And every time I feel afraid, I hold tighter to my faith and I live one more day, and I can make it through the rain. As I live once again, and I live one more day, I can make it through the rain' ~~~

-R. Ann Go-


I spent three days and three nights in Jack's apartment without telling our maids and even my driver where I was staying. I only came home when I had to get some clothes as I used Jack's dress and sleep wears while I was staying with her.

I checked the time from my wristwatch... it's 10:30 pm. I got out of the car and swung my sling bag as I headed towards the entrance. But I didn't know Luke was furiously waiting for me in the living room. I also had no idea he was calling me the whole day as I put my phone in silent.

"Where have you been?"

I gasped in shock and I accidentally closed the door with a loud 'bang'. I had to blink twice and thrice to make sure that it was really him

"Where the hell have you been all day and these fucking three days, Samantha?" He shouted again that pulled me back to my senses.

'So he's already here. He finally came from his week-long vacation.'

It was only then that I noticed the bottle of beers on the table. Whoa! What the hell was his problem? I have lived in this house for five months and I think it's only the second time I've seen him face the bottle of alcohol.

I stared at him for a few seconds before shaking my head and went towards the stairs. He's drunk and I don't have plans on talking to him.

"Where are you going?" His voice rang through my ears but I kept walking.


I pretended to be deaf and ignored him until I felt a strong hand grab my wrist.

"Ouch! What the---"

"Fucking answer me, woman! Where have you been these past three days?" He asked, his eyes showed the anger he has.

But I pulled my hand from his grip and looked at him with narrowed eyes.

"Why? What is it to you if I was gone for three days?" I asked, raising my eyebrow.

"Don't answer my question with another question, Samantha Soriano!"

"Correction--- Williams! Samantha Soriano Williams! And why do you care? I thought you said 'I shouldn't ask anything about your whereabouts and your personal life as you won't ask anything about mine', huh?"

I noticed how he clenched his jaws and tightened his grip on the bottle... but I just smirked.

"So now you know how it feels when you ask so

until Paul, Elaine and Rory came rushing to where I was.

"Ma'am, please let me help you to the car." I looked at Paul and nodded unconsciously.

He carried me and almost ran to the garage while Rory and Elaine were both on the phone as they ran behind us. Rory opened the door to the back seat so Paul could put me inside. I felt nothing except the slight dizziness I still had since this morning.

There were lots of questions in my head as I heard the loud screeching of the car as soon as we reached the main road.

"What is happening, Elaine? Can you please call Luke?" The nervousness was eating me as I forgot that I have my own phone.

"I've been calling him since we left the house, Sam but he's out of range and I've already called your best friend. She said she'll meet us at the hospital." Rory was the one who answered. She's in front while Elaine was sitting next to me.

"Thanks, Rory--- ahh!" I didn't have the chance to continue what I had to say when I felt pain in my belly.

"Oh, my God! Paul, please hurry up!" Elaine held my shoulders to keep me still.

"E-Elaine... am I going to lose my baby?" I asked, tears streaming down my face.

"Shhh! Stop thinking those things, ma'am Samantha, that's not going to happen, so please calm down."

Calm down. I think that's the last thing I wanted to do as I couldn't explain the fear I have at that moment. Honestly, I wasn't scared for myself but for my baby. I don't know what to do if I lose her.

"Ahh!" I screamed as I felt the pain again. Then I felt my blood drained from my body when I touched something sticky in my legs. I gulped, slowly looking down my knees... "E-Elaine..."

And that's the last thing I could remember since I've already lost my consciousness.
