Have you told SHE? ME asked HE
No. HE simply said
Why? ME probed
Me and you is SHE's business. J and me is your business. HE replied
I want to say "no." ME softly said
No to what. HE inquired
You keeping J. ME
HE stared at ME in silence.
But I know I'll lose you if I don't agree to this. ME said tearing up.
I'm hurting you that much - aren't I? HE said noticing my tears.
ME looked at him, tears now falling uncontrollably from my eyes. ME was about to say something but ME just bit my lip. ME don't think ME would be comprehensible when talking while sobbing.
HE then held my face and wiped my tears with his thumbs.
I know. I know. I'm sorry. HE
And ME just cried my heart out.
Ssshhhhhhhh. HE said softly. Don't you ever forget that you are also my business. I don't want to hurt you more than I already have. Mahal na mahal kita... HE continued.
And J? ME finally asked.
I'll do what I can. HE said.
I'm a mess - gawd!
But I know I can take more blows from HE - i'll let ME bruise and bleed 'till I'm numb...
