Chapter 1: Jessica Louise Mendez is Jessie
Jessie’s Point of View
“Damn it, Gina! If you can’t make it this time, you have to give my folks a better reason!” Ang galit na tinig ng isang lalaki ang bumasag sa naririnig kong kanta sa magkabilang ear pod ko. Nahinto ang ginagawa kong pagtingin sa magasin. Mabilis na nag-angat ako ng mukha kasabay nang papalakas na pintig ng puso ko sa pamilyar na tinig na iyon.
Si Rigs. He was wearing a white polo shirt branded on the left sleeve and carrying on his left shoulder a black storage tube. He angrily removed it without noticing me and put it on the bin near the door. Kasunod nito ang babae na kagaya nito ay halata sa itsura na irritable. She was wearing a white ruffled short sleeve linen and black tight fitting slacks which complemented her height and figure. Ever since, Gina De Mesa was an eye-catching celebrity in our small town in San Cristobal. Rigs and Gina were a perfect sweetheart while they were growing up. And now that Rigs was a successful architect and Gina was working as a news reporter in a prestigious TV network in the country, everyone from our hometown was expecting that a match made from heaven would have a big wedding of the year. And were both in marrying age of twenty-eight.
