A few days went sa pamamagitan ng as the same routine. Ariel takes Melody to school, runs errands for Eric, picks up Melody from school, feeds Melody dinner, and tucks her in bed, while Eric comes tahanan from work. On her first day-off on Sunday before leaving with Andrina for church, Eric had ibingiay Ariel her first salary. Ariel had thanked him very generously for her reward. She blushed as she remembered hugging him tenderly that day. Was she allowed to hug her boss? Maybe a handshake would have been proper? Gee, she hoped her boss wasn't mad? Was he?
Today's Thursday and Ariel was trying to find the neighboring...
Later at 8pm, when Eric walked out the office, he only wondered one thing. How am I going to tell Melody? I don't want to disappoint her. But I don't want to disappoint my boss, either! Despite Roy's answer, he thought of asking Walt anyway. No, it would not make much a difference. Eric know how loyal Walt is to the Red Rabbit Company-after all, he was the one who built it. Walt would say the same answer. He sighed dejectedly, got inside his jeep, and drove away. Little did he know, two pairs of yellow eyes were watching him, behind from a silver Saturn.
Despite Ariel's assurance, Melody still hated the idea of not having a mother. Why doesn't she have a mother? How come other kids have two parents while she has one? Mind you, not that she doesn't like her dad-no she loves him! Melody still yearns for someone who will read stories to her and halik daddy when he comes home.
"You don't know what happened to your mother?" Ariel asked.
Melody shook her head. "No, I don't know what happened to her."
Ariel didn't press anymore to the subject. Melody must have a been a baby when a tragedy struck her mother. Silence filled the whole room, only...
The school Principal, who was about to pack his papers for the day, was surprised to see Ariel and three children walking up to his desk. Seeing that they have to tell him something important, he kindly allowed them seats (and lollipops for the children). When Ariel and the kids detailed him about many episodes of bullies mocking Melody, his face was filled with compassion and sympathy. The kids gave him the names of the bullies he requested so he can call their parents.
"Don't worry, I'll make sure that you won't shed another tear," he sinabi to Melody.
When Ariel and Andrina came home, the family tuned up their ears on Ariel's story. Ariel glowed as she told them her tale. She made sure to skip a few events that mentioned anything happening between her and Eric such as how warm and soft his hand felt when they shook hands. When she came to the part about the job offer, her sisters felt happy for her,but her father raised an eyebrow, and dapa frowned.
"Wow! That's great, Ariel!" sinabi Arista. The other sisters nodded in agreement.
"Thanks," Ariel smiled. Nobody noticed dapa looking down at the ground with his arms crossed.
You will enjoy this chapter a lot since it will feature Eric, Ariel and Melody. Enjoy! :)
The sun rays flew in the windowsill as Eric groggily rose from his bed. He groaned, stretched and rubbed his eyes. Today was Sunday which was another good araw for Eric because he had off. He wouldn't have to worry about driving Melody to school, being late to work, and being late to pick her up. The only thing he wanted to focus on right now was cleaning his house a bit since Ariel was coming over. Eric got dressed in a white shirt, blue jeans, and black shoes. He combed his hair, brushed his teeth and went...
Warning: This is when the tagahanga fic becomes high PG.
Like Eric, everybody else went to sleep. However, there is one person that did not go to bed.
"AAAAAAAARRRRRRGH! I can't believe this!" A deep female voice screeched. Ursula came tahanan late at midnight, stomping inside her house.
"What is, Ursula?" A young whispery male voice asked. His name is Flotsam. He was a lanky man around 29 with dark blonde hair, and dressed up in all green. Another guy, standing susunod to him, is his brother, Jetsam, who is also tall and lanky and dressed up in green clothing, only with dark brown hair.
After Ariel waved goodbye to Eric and Melody, she carefully crossed the kalye to meet up with her brother. Her sandy-colored haired brothers was holding a carton of gatas that he bought from the Deli.
"Ariel, what was going on? Who was that man you were talking to?" dapa asked.
"I was trying to save his daughter," Ariel explained.
"Really?" dapa asked.
"It's a long story," sinabi Ariel. As they walk away from the Deli, Ariel told dapa the details of the story such as saving Melody, standing up to Eric, and a hapunan with them. When she finished, dapa was amazed. That was a...
Normally, Eric would be in his office, working on countless papers for his boss. But last night, after he put the nanny advertisement on the newspaper, he had requested a araw off on Saturday from his boss thus he could find a nanny for Melody. His boss agreed and hoped to have him back at work soon. Now Saturday came and everybody read Eric's advertisement. Many nanny candidates showed up at Eric's house. The Interviews took place in the living room. While Eric was sure to hire a nanny, Melody was not thrilled.
I don't know why Daddy is doing this! I don't want...
