After Patricia got home, she and Innocencia beginning to discuss as always. “It’s a good thing I followed your advice sister. Alfredo and Kamila are not together. They are simply just friends, that’s all. I’m really so excited. I’m sure one day, he will confess his feelings to me sooner or later “Innocencia said enthusiastically. “That’s good to know “she said with a little smile on her face as it vanished immediately. “What’s wrong Patricia? Are you okay? “she asked. “I’m just thinking of Ronato. He’s leaving the country tomorrow night “Patricia replied sadly. “But why? “asked Innocencia. “Because he thinks that I don’t love him “she replied. “But why don’t you tell him that you do “Innocencia suggested. “But it’s not as simple as that, Innocencia. Up until now, he and Liliana still meet. I don’t want to be a victim of his cunning ways “said Patricia. “I thought you said he has changed already “said Innocencia. “Yes he did. But I can’t say the same with Liliana. Up until now, she is still very much in love with Ronato “said Patricia. “So what are you going to do now? “Innocencia asked. “I don’t know sister. Honestly, I’m really confused. I don’t know what to do……….. Earlier, earlier before I left the hospital,
he gave me this last kiss. And you know what, the kiss made me feel happy. I felt so happy right in my heart. But unfortunately, he said that was going to be the last. He’ll be leaving for Morocco tomorrow “she replied. “But don’t you think you can stop that from happening? “asked Innocencia. “But how? “she asked. “Just listen to your heart and ask yourself this question. Is this really what you want? For him to leave and never return? “said Innocencia as Patricia shook her head. “Well if no, you should try and stop him from leaving “said Innocencia. “But how can I do that? His mind is already made up “asked Patricia. “No Patricia. You can still change his mind. You should tell him the truth. Tell him you’ve fallen in love with him “said Innocencia. “What! “she exclaimed. “I’m telling you sister. That is the only thing you can do to get your love back. That is the only way to stop him from leaving if you still want him. You also helped me with Alfredo. That’s why I’m helping you now with the love of your life. I hope you can do this for yourself. For the sake of your happiness. Or else, you might just lose him forever “said Innocencia as Patricia begin to think about it over and over again. Most especially Innocencia’s last statement.
