“Uhumm, can I remove my arms around you now?” suddenly the man who prevented her from falling stated in a mocking tone. Atty. Ninia Salamera’s face grew red with embarrassment. “Oh my, of course, thank you, Sir.” She immediately made herself stand firmly. “Be careful next time; do not use your phone while walking.” He then turned his back and walked in the direction of the CEO’s office. Atty. Ninia was not able to say a word. His face is familiar. “Oh my God!” the woman covers her mouth with her left hand, she knows the man; he was the one who beat her in the recent bar exam. He topped the bar and she only placed second! “What are you doing here Atty. Wilgreg Monaro”, she whispered.
Chapter 1 - Abandoned and Neglected Son
“Look Damian, your bastard, top the bar!” Lucia, with tremors, threw the newspaper to the man she prided herself on calling her husband but could not actually be hers. They are not married. Lucia has been married to someone else. She has two sons from her real husband.
“What is there to be surprised about? He is my son; of course, he will inherit his father’s intelligence.” Damian looked at the newspaper and saw the face of Wilgreg; his abandoned and neglected son. Deep in his heart, he regretted neglecting himself and his mother. But he was a jerk during his younger years; a jerk in choosing Lucia, who is a married woman with two children, who are not even his. His action was out of necessity, selfishness, and irresponsibility, and most probably out of fear of what Lucia’s crazy mind could do. One thing he is sure of is, he was an idiot and a coward and, still an idiot and a coward until now. He had no courage to face his son and his mother, Carolina. He is shrewd and brave when it comes to business, and well respected, but in meeting his only son and his Mom, he is the most cowardly, to say the least.
“Hah, so you are proud of your bastard now, wow!” Lucia’s sarcasm was overflowing. The birth of this bastard, Wilgreg, made her life uncomfortable. She swore to make his life and his mother like a living hell, which she did and will do if needed again.
Damian narrowed his eyes at Lucia with full disgust, “Stop it, Lucia! He is my son, my only son, my flesh and my blood, and my only heir!”
Lucia’s mouth was hung open in total surprise at what Damian had just fully uttered. With confusion and hate, she asked, “What do you mean?”
“Lucia, you know for a fact, Wilgreg is my sole heir. Your children are not my children. I did not even adopt them. We are not married and you know why you are married to somebody else until now.” Damian replied with a hint of a little insult. He regretted being with this woman, who manipulated him at the onset; but it is too late to regret it. He is old and he is sure, his son and his mother, Carolina, might have been cursing him and hating him for a long time already.
Lucia toned down as she came near and tried to embrace the man from his back. “Damian, you know why I cannot annul my first husband. It would be a great scandal, especially since I am at fault. It was because of you that we separated, remember?”
“Yes, and I was aghast at that time because I did not mean to ruin a family. You seduced me and then you blamed me and hit my conscience; worse, you tried to commit suicide in order to wrap your fingers around me. You even threatened to kill my son and his mother. Satisfied now Lucia? You have me until now and I neglected my son!” Damian stood up and left the stunned woman, who could not mutter a single word.
Lucia’s heart bled. All throughout those years that they were together and up until now, did Damian ever love her? She lost herself loving and adoring him like a God while he, on the other hand, was just being forced to be with her because of everything that she did. Did she really win over Carolina? Did she really get the happiness she wanted? Lucia’s heart answered yes because Damian is with her, but her mind knew better. She lost! She lost her family, she lost herself, she lost her dignity and she actually lost her mind. For what? Up until now, she couldn't even say frankly enough that Damian was hers.
“Congratulations my Unico Hijo, you never fail to make me proud of you!” Carolina Monaro embraced her son with so much happiness. She would never regret standing firm to raise him, even alone. Yes, Carolina Monaro is a single mom. A fierce yet loving Mom as her son Wilgreg would always describe her.
“Because you never fail to make me admire you Mom; my fierce yet loving Mom.” Wilgreg embraced back her Mom and, with much endearment, kissed her forehead and the top of her nose. Since childhood, that was already been his endearing act towards his Mom. His actions would always take away his Mom’s anger and even sadness.
“You top the bar Wil, what’s next?” Carolina asked her son with a smile on her refined aura.
Wilgred winked at his Mother, “Secret Mom, you’ll see.”
“Wil!, there you are!” A woman's loud voice made the mother and son turn their heads to check who was calling Wil like there was an emergency.
Wil’s eyes rolled when he saw who was calling him. “Lulu, what’s up?”
“Congratulations Attorney Wilgreg Monaro!” Her voice is full of energy.
Wilgred rolled his eyes again and shook his head. Lulu is a woman who seems to never run out of energy when it comes to him. “Thank you Lulu; same to you, you did it too.”
“I was inspired, you know hahaha. Hi, pretty Tita Carol you are such a wonderful woman to be able to raise a top-notch son.” Lulu then gently got Carolina’s right hand and kissed the same as a sign of full respect.
Carolina laughed at the jolly woman’s joke. “Congratulations Lulu, your parents must be so proud of you too. They have their lawyer in the family now.”
“Small thing Tita compared to what you have achieved.” The young new Attorney even made a gesture, making her thumb and next finger touch each other, like demonstrating the word small.
“Where are your parents, by the way?” Carolina made her eyes wander around the premises, trying to search for Lulu’s parents.
A moment of sadness passed through Lulu’s face but she immediately lightened up, “Ahh they are outside the country Tita, you know, checking our hotel’s problem in Indonesia.”
Carolina saw the sudden sadness on Lulu’s face, which the latter immediately covered up with a smile. “I see, would you want to come with us? We will have dinner after this oath-taking ceremony.”
“Yeah, come with us Lulu, only me and Mom anyway.” Wilgreg also saw Lulu’s sudden expression of sadness and in his intention to lighten up what she felt, he invited her. Lulu is a good friend to him and nothing more, although he knows very well that the woman has loved him since their first year of law school.
“No thank you Wil and Tita, I have a flight booked for this evening. Daddy called this morning, saying he needs my legal expertise there.” Lulu smiled apologetically. She was sad deep inside because when her father called, he did not even congratulate her or say he was proud of her. He just said that his secretary booked her a flight tonight going to Indonesia to help him with some legal issues in their Hotel.
“I see, that’s great Lulu, your practice of law is now starting.” Wilgreg winked at Lulu with the hope of lightening up her mood.
Lulu’s mother is the youngest daughter of a wealthy Indonesian hotelier. His father, a Filipino, once worked as a hotel Supervisor in one of the hotels of his mother’s family. It must have been fate that Lulu’s mother saw him and fell in love with him at the onset. That’s why Lulu always believed in love and first sight. It happened to her also, with Wilgreg Monaro.
Chapter 2 - The Offer
Damian Lincuja, remembers the time that he first held in his arms his only son. He was only two years old at that time. As many said, his son was his little replica. They were actually happy way back then. Caroline did not force him to marry yet, even if they had a son. He was still struggling then with his small engineering firm and getting married was not yet in his plans. Until he met Lucia. For him, it was just a play, a momentary sexual urge, no strings attached. Lucia is a married woman, so what the heck? She cannot demand anything from him. She offered herself to him, so why not give her the pleasure she wanted? But that was his greatest mistake. Lucia was not the woman he thought she was. She never accepted rejections or defeats. She is one hell of a crazy, desperate woman. She clung to him and left her husband; brought her children to her parents and asked them to take care of them temporarily. She said it was him that she deeply loved and she could never live a hap
