The gentle sunbeam from the window touches my bare skin and the gossamer black curtain flutters in the morning breeze, it’s early in the morning and yet Klare is already here, she lie down to my bed and looked at the ceiling while I’m sitting here at the sofa that mom bought for me months ago, it placed near the window.
Her long and thick blonde hair covers almost the whole pillow where her head is laying.
“How was it? How’s your first check up?” she asked.
Mom’s still mad at me, she’s not talking to me while we were in the car heading to the OB Gyne, she just talked when she asked some questions about my pregnancy. I feel so guilty.
“I’m now 3 weeks pregnant, I experienced my first ever morning sickness when I woke up this morning,” I said.
I’m craving for something sour, so I asked Simon to buy me some pineapple. Yes, Simon is not mad anymore, he’s just disappointed but not to the point that he’ll let me buy on my own my cravings.
“Omg! I can’t believe that you’re now pregnant, sissy!” She said as if she never cursed me when she learned that I’m pregnant, lol.
“I’m a bit nervous, I don’t know if I can handle morning sickness, mood swings or cramps during my pregnancy,” I said.
I opened my phone and browsed my social media accounts. I checked my friend request list to find out that one of my close friends from high school added me, I checked his profile and timeline for me to make sure that it’s really him.
“Do you still remember Axel Lazaro?” I asked Klare.
She looked at me with her eyes widened. She looks surprised. She used to like him back then, that’s why. I can't blame her, I can't blame those girls, Axel is a good looking man.
“Yeah, why? I remember I had a huge crush on him when we’re still in high school,” she said while laughing.
“He added me on my social media account,” I said.
Axel is one of the heartthrobs on our batch back when we’re high school, lots of girls, including Klare, got a crush on him, but he never paid so much attention to it, maybe because he has a girlfriend or someone he likes.
After our graduation, I heard that they migrated to Canada for good, I also heard his high-end restaurant has branches all over the world. I must say that he’s a successful business man now. Good for him.
“Can I see his profile picture? I think he looks more handsome and stunning,” Klare said while giggling.
I showed him my phone while Axel’s timeline was on it for her to be able to see his profile picture.
“Omg! He looks more mature but he’s still handsome and charismatic, I doubt if he’s still single or not, what do you think?” she asked again. She’s so nosy, when it comes to boys, lol.
Axel messaged me as soon as I confirmed him, I told Klare and she looked so cute when she learned that Axel we’ll be here soon.
We just stayed in my room and talked about lots of things, Klare is so nosy.
Time flies so fast, it’s already June and it’s now my second trimester.
It’s really not easy to be a mother, I can say that. First trimester is difficult, especially to someone that’s no one helping her out, I didn’t imagine that I could get through it, even though I have mom, dad, Simon and Klare by my side. Having someone that can look after you even in the middle of the night is another thing. But, It’s okay, I really need to take responsibility for every action and decision I make.
It’s my choice to be in this situation, so I should stand it.
“Aemee, this crib looks so cute, look,” Klare excitedly grabbed me in the crib section.
We’re here at the mall buying clothes for this little one inside my womb. Mom and dad are in the kitchenware section.
“This one, too,” I said while pointing at the black and white simple crib.
We just got the ultrasound result last week, and we learned that it’s a baby girl.
“Black and white? Seriously? Your baby is a girl!” She said while rolling her eyes and still checking the details of the crib she showed me.
I laughed when I saw her reaction, I love black and white, that’s why.
“It’s a neutral color, Klare, girls can use black and white too,” I explained.
“Whatever- oh! Axel, here!” I looked in the direction Klare was looking at.
Axel is walking towards us, he’s just wearing a simple white t-shirt with brown maong shorts. He has this charisma that will make every woman drool. He’s holding a bunch of fresh flowers that I don’t know where he gets.
3 months ago he went to the Philippines, to manage one of his restaurants here.
“Hey!” He greeted us.
Klare giggled when he saw Axel gave me a flower. I accepted it and smiled at him.
“Where’s tita and tito?” he asked.
“They’re in the kitchenware section,” I answered.
Axel has been courting me for almost 1 month, but I told him that I don’t have time for things like that. I told him that I just want to focus on my child, so I told him to stop, but he insisted, he told me that he wants to pursue me and to prove his intention to me.
He even confessed to me that he never paid attention to those girls that had a huge crush on him because he liked me back when we’re still in high school, but when he learned that Josiah is courting me he just kept it to himself and tried to move on.
“I see, where’s Simon By the way?” He asked again, when he noticed that Simon was not around.
“He has a meeting with the new investors,” I answered. While looking at the baby clothes.
I’m mesmerized by the pink romper for a new born baby, it'll look good on her.
“It’s cute,” Axel said while looking at the romper that I am holding.
I placed it in the mini cart that I am holding. Actually dad and mom already bought lots of baby clothes yesterday, they’re so excited. They even bought strollers, I told them that it’s too early to buy some stuff like that but they just laughed.
Weeks after mom and dad learned that I am pregnant they asked me to resign from my job, they just want me to stay at home while I’m still pregnant, because we discovered that I have a sensitive pregnancy.They even hired a personal nurse for me! Omg!I just laughed when they informed me about them looking for a private nurse for me.I told them that when I gave birth I would go back to my work, I want to personally provide all the needs of my child, they told me that I should still stay at home, that they can provide everything for us, but I insisted, they did so many things for me and my child.“Do you want something to eat or are you craving for something?” I looked at Axel while pushing the cart.“No, I’m good Axel, thank you,” I said while smiling.He’s always like that, he always makes sure that I get to ea
Minutes after Axel arrived, he had three boxes of pizza, burger and fries with him. He does know that I love eating those, don't he?“How are you?” he sat beside me and rubbed my tummy gently.Manang Flor is busy arranging Axel brought.“We’re good, Axel, thank you, how’s your mom?”I said out of concern.He told me that his mom rushed to the hospital due to severe pain she felt on her abdomen. She has been diagnosed with gallbladder inflammation, and she needs to undergo surgery as soon as possible before it may get worse.“She’s okay, it just that we need to monitor her every other minutes, we hired a private nurse to look after her specially when we are not around,”His dad decided to bring tita Emily here to do her treatment here in the Philippines.“I see, how ‘bo
"Clifford Dien Samonte, Chief executive officer."I whispered while I was holding wooden desk name plates. I put it back at the table and roam around the black and white painted room which serves as my office, the CEO office. I can see from here the buildings and structures. Natural light and these stunning large windows bring this office to life.Aemee keeps her distance from me, she's really good at hiding. I massaged my forehead and thought of ways on how I could talk to her.I just learned that she’s one of our flight Attendants, and I thought that it’ll be a good start for me getting close to her but I’m wrong! She’s still hiding from me as if it can help her that way, tss.Today is the start of her two days off, of course I know! I asked my secretary to give me the schedule of our flight attendants for me to be able to know her schedule, damn, this is so not me. That wom
It's nearly 5 in the afternoon and I'm about to leave because I don't have anything here to do, and I'm a mom of a 2-year-old baby girl and I needed to feed her, lol. Supposedly this day is just for her but since that man is such a baby, my time for her is compromised. I just called Axel to fetch me, he never allowed me to drive on my own, since I don't want to create commotions or arguments, I just obeyed him. I was just standing here waiting for Axel, when I felt someone was standing beside me. I gave it a glance to find out that it was Clifford again, giving me a wide smile, I just gave him a puzzled look, what is he doing here again? "Mind if I drive you home?" I looked at him and acted like I didn't hear anything. I heard him laugh a bit, I can still feel his glance. I told him that I'm waiting for someone, he still insists on driving me home, I even told him to le
