~~Everything I know about love, I learned from you and everything I know about pain, I learned from you.   But the most important thing you ever gave me was the one that hurt the most. So thank you for the broken heart and thank you for the permanent scar, 'cause if it wasn't from you, I might forget how it feels to let go and how it feels to get a brand new start...~~~

"Good morning, mommy."

I opened my eyes only to see my daughter who had the brightest smile on her face.

"Good morning." I got up and kissed her on the cheeks. I also checked the time from the mango-shaped wall clock that's hanging above the television set and I couldn't help but sigh and smile at the same time. It's only 7:30 am... San Francisco time.

My mom told Jack and me to stay and sleep in the house last night and she'll just ask the driver to get our things from Jack's apartment. And as usual, Jack initially refused as she thought of seeing my brother would lose her insanity... but when mom told her that he no longer stays in the mansion, she excitedly agreed. She used the guest room which was right next to my room while Cali slept with me.

"Breakfast is ready, mom and we're all just waiting for you."

"Ohh... yeah."

I slapped my forehead. I almost forgot that in this house, we should all get up by 7:00 and eat breakfast before 8:00.

"Uhm... why don't you go first and I'll follow you when I'm done changing my sleepwear?"

"Okay." She nodded. And I noticed her hair was already wet.

"Honey, have you already bathed?"

"Yes, mommy." Her smile almost reached her ears as she tried to curl up her hair using her tiny fingers. "And daddy helped me find this dress earlier."

That made me frown.

"W-What? Who helped you to find that dress?" I asked her again as I wasn't sure what I had heard.

"Daddy." She shrugged. "He does it every day before going to work and sometimes he let me go with him to his office and play games on his computer." She beamed upon mentioning the word 'games'.

But that's not what made me stop.

"If your daddy helped you find your dress, does that mean he came here early?"

"Nope, he just woke up early."

"But that's the same."

"No, mommy, because he slept here. He used the other room next to Uncle Dale's room."

I didn't pay much attention to what my daughter said. Luke is Cali's father and he still has good communication with our family, well, of course, apart from the fact that our parents were now business partners, he and Dale were best friends.

I took almost 15 minutes to do my morning routine and changed my clothes into something comfortable. And when I say 'comfortab

d loves you."

"Yeah, I heard him, baby." I couldn't help but chuckle at her, even my mom. "Hi, babe, I miss you too."

I don't know but I kinda said it out loud.

"Ohh, my goodness, I miss your sweet voice, babe. How was your sleep?" I smiled at his question and when I look up, I saw Jack with her thumbs up.

"Well, I got a good sleep despite my light jetlag, maybe because Cali hugged me to sleep."

"Haist, I wish I was there to hug you."

"Yeah---huh!" I stiffened on my seat when I felt that Luke's hand brushed my bare knees. I looked at him with wide eyes only to be more shocked at the things he was going to do next.

"I'm sorry, but my towel has fallen near your feet so I have to get it."

I was just about to open my mouth, but he has already lowered his head in exactly levelled of my thigh and slowly picked up the white towel.

Slowly... that I can feel his hot breath fanning against my skin... and he's doing on purpose.

"Okay, I got it." He smirked, waving the towel in front of me.

I couldn't help forming my fists. This damned man was lucky that we were surrounded by my family otherwise I would have slapped his face so I could also wipe irritating smirk on his lips.

"Babe, are you still there?"

I took a deep breath and smiled at my daughter who seemed confused about what's going on between her parents.

"Yes, I'm still here, " I said, picking up the phone and brought it to my ear after turning off the speaker.

And since I'm done eating, I excused myself to talk to my boyfriend in a somewhere private... emphasizing the word 'boyfriend'.

"I just have to talk to my 'boyfriend. I love you, babe."

And with one last hard look to the suddenly became serious Luke, I left the kitchen and ran outside until my feet reached the pool area.
