I wore a baby pink dress. It fits to my body and I ponytailed my hair.
After I got dressed I went downstairs. When I came down I saw papa at a table with another respected friends, Investors and his high end friends. They all knew about mama's death then. Daddy said, She died because of a car accident when I was two years old.
I only saw my mom in the pictures. It's just her. She's beautiful.
Her almond eyes, that's puffy. She has a soft aura. Dad's too. Where did I inherit my face? Just one look at me you can't see well just because on my face the malice.
I tried, I was looking at where my mom and I looked like but nothing .. Maybe. I got my aunties or uncles looks?
"Here hija." Papa pointed to his seat next to him. There I sat. In my right, is papa, on the left is Sav.
My heart thumb so fast.There were those with us at the table who were familiar faces to me, others were not. They look at me in pure attraction.
The foods and wine serve to us.
I immediately ate the ‘food on my plate. There's a desert too.
"So hija, How old are you?" I smiled.
"Sixteen ." I answered politely.
"Really? Sixteen?" She laugh."In St. Dominic you're studying right?"
"I knew it! Did you know my son Caleb?"
My lips parted.
Caleb is one of my suitor! Like Simon, He's a playboy too!
"Yes ! We're friends!" I said cheerfully. That's why they're so familiar.
She turned to Dad.
"God, Henry I really like your daughter. Maybe we could do something about it."
The other woman gasped.
"Martha! Don't be like that! I still want to introduce her to my young man!"
They all laughed.
My face heated.What the hell!
"I think Roxxette is too young to commit herself. Study first.." I am shocked of Sav butt in coldly.
He is shameless!
"Yeah. She's young." Then their topic went about the company and business.
To Sav's left is his girlfriend. In front of them were strangers but I knew one of their colleagues.
Dad and Sav busy talking. As I secretly peered to my side. I saw his girlfriend massage his legs down there.
Apparently Sav just doesn't have that. He remained serious talking with a man on his front.
My blood boiled of some reasons.
My eyes narrowed as I looked back there.
I saw Sav held the hand of his girlfriend. I dont know her name. But I think it's also an architect like Sav and papa.
She chuckled,she whispered something to Sav, and Sav smirked.
Hell .I lost my appetite.
I cleared my throat.
"Uh dad, I'm not feeling well. I'm going upstairs."
His forehead creased.
"What?" His hand landed on my neck and forehead.
"Okay." I kissed his cheeks.
Going up the stairs makes my heart ache. I know it's weird.
And I'm not ignorant that it doesn't know what. This is what I afraid of.
I'm afraid of my own feelings towards Sav.So while it was still early I tried to stop it. I try to comfort myself with something else.I called it before a simple crush. But it went deeper.
I love him . I love my uncle.
Every time I see him I can hardly breathe because of my heartbeat. Every time he was with a woman my heart ached. It's okay. I'm the only one who knows. It will fade. I wish.
Down the hallway to the bedroom I went straight to the end where the comfort room is. There is a small hallway leading to the wide veranda.
I went into the comfort room and washed there. My eyeliner messed up. I took a tissue and wiped it. I untied the ponytail with my long hair and let it fall out.
This way I looked like twenty years old. My brows were on fleek, I am slender, my skin is white but red, my lips are thin and red.I inspection my own reflection. Maybe I only inherited mama's white skin?
I had a spoiled attitude. I'm a brat. I don't care if I get someone hurt by being straightforward. Our family is powerful.Everything about me was perfect. I have only one weakness. My uncle Sav.
I was not aware of the tears that flowed from my eyes.
It hurts so much. My heart is so unfair.
I sobbed silenly.I stayed in front of the sink for a few minutes and then I came out.When I got out I went straight to the Veranda. In my horror, Sav is there. He seems think deeply and he's smoking. He sat on the couch there staring at the glowing stars.He shifted when he feel my presence. I am stunned. I cannot take another step.
The light here were dimmed.
"Uh .. Wrong timing.." I said.
I would have turned my back when he spoke.
"Always avoiding me, huh?" He said. immediately threw the cigarette under the railings.
I closed my eyes and looked at him.
"Avoiding who?" I mocked. I crossed my arms on my chest.
That's it Rox. Face your feelings!
He Smirked. He stood up and stepped closer to me .. My heart pounded.
My knees were shaking and I couldn't speak.
He no longer has a coat. His polo folded to his elbow. His first three buttons are open. His presence screaming of power. He's really handsome match with his adonis body. He's twenty three. And A Eligible Bachelor of the Philippines.
My type of man. But we're Incest.
My heart pounded without realizing he was close to me. I backed away until I felt the cold railing behind me. I am cornered by his body.
"Who do you think huh?" He crouched a bit to reach my ear. I shivered.
"I-I dont know what a-are you talking about. Sav!" I hissed. I pushed him but he didn't budge.
He licked his lips .. I immediately looked there. Damn lips.
"Sav?" He mocked cockily
"What about Uncle Sav?" He grinned.
“Call yourself that! Fuck off!" I tried to pushed him again.
Hell .I'm so nervous. What if daddy will see us? In this position?
He chuckled and cursed. "Damn..I think I can commit a sin now." He whispered huskily.
The closeness of his face made me nervous.
"Fuck it. " He cursed and I almost died when his face came over and kissed the side of my lip. His lips slightly touch my lips.
My eyes widened . Because of that I pushed him hard and slapped him.
He didn't react. His jaw just tightened his face turned red.
"Why -Why did you do that ?!" I hissed. Tears rolled down.
His eyes narrowed as he looked at my tears.
"What do you think? Why did I do that huh?"
I was shocked by what he said.
I pushed him again.
"I hate you!"
I left there immediately .I turned to him once and saw that he is frustrated.
I ran to my bedroom and cursed at my bed. There I cried.
I am not crying because I am hurt. I am crying because, I just loved him even more!
