Natatawang napailing si Vance. “Why would I want you off my back if I like you in the first place?”
“That’s what I want to find out.” Lumapit si Saskia; hindi sumusuko sa pakikipagtitigan sa kanya.
“You really wanna know the reason?” pikon nang sabi ni Vance. “You don’t interest me. You are what you show you are—a selfish, promiscuous girl who have no morals. You may have a pretty face but that is all that you have. Forgive me for wanting something more… and it’s simply not you.”
Matagal na blangko ang ekspresyon ng kaharap. “Very well said,” mayamaya ay saad nito. “Forgive me for wasting your time.”
Tumalikod si Saskia at ang tanging nagawa ni Vance ay ang sundan ng tingin ang dalaga. Sa kung anong dahilan, hindi siya masaya. If anything, he felt cold and empty… and like a first-class jerk.
