~~~Lately I see the clouds of sorrow in your eyes. Some deep sadness you can never quite disguise. Now I'm scared to ask what it's leading to, but I'm more afraid of not asking you. You've got secrets you've been keeping for too long and I'm going crazy acting like there's nothing wrong. Is there something that you want to tell me? Are we something that's still worth fighting for or should I simply let you go?

SEVEN YEARS AGO...

"Mom, where is daddy? The program's gonna start, teacher Angie told me."

I bit my lip when I heard my daughter's question. I took a breath before lowering my height into her level. A mix of hope and sadness was evident in her innocent eyes.

"Uhm, maybe daddy is already on his way, baby. Don't worry, I'm going to call him again, huh?"

Cali is three and a half years old, currently enrolled in preschool and today they have a school event... a family day. It's been a week since I informed Luke about this and he said yes, he agreed. He promised Cali he would come with her like he did the last time, but we've been waiting for him for almost half an hour, but so far I can't see any sign of him that he would attend.

This morning, he told me he has an important meeting by 8:00 o'clock and I let him attend it because he said it will only last 30 to 40 minutes and Cali's school event will begin at 10:15 am. I checked the time from my wristwatch and there are only 15 minutes left and the program will start, but until now he hasn't answered my calls yet.

"But that's also what you said earlier when I asked you." Her voice trembled so I had to hug her and tried to comfort her again.

"Don't worry, baby, mommy is here. Am I not enough? You know, I can also perform as your mom and dad at the same time."

She let go from my embrace at looked at me with the cutest pout in her lips.

"I know, mommy. You are my super mom and I know you can do that like most of the t

cause 'your dad' is quite busy with his work." Jack replied.

She wasn't looking at me but I didn't miss the way she emphasized the words 'your dad'.

"Yehey! Can I tell my friends now?"

"Oh, yes, sweet munchkin, you can now tell your friends. Go, go, go!"

And Cali excitedly ran back to her friends while I was left shocked and confused in front of my best friend.

"Jack, what are you doing here and how did you know we were here?"

"Well, as I said earlier, I'm here to be your partner because I know your 'most loving husband' is busy--- and will always be busy in his work!"

"Jack!"

"Why? Isn't it true? And to answer your second question, I went to your house to see my favourite person in the world, but your maid told me that you were at school because it's Cali's family day event today. And of course, since I know that 'your loving husband' couldn't come, I decided to drive here to support my baby Cali." and she ended her speech, rolling her eyes.

"How many times do you have to emphasize the word 'your loving husband'?"

"Until I became satisfied and until you realized that you're just hoping for nothing!"

"Haist! Jackeline!"

I didn't know what to say, so I chose to keep my mouth shut after that. I'm sure she won't stop if I go against her, so it's better to stay quiet.
