“Napasubo ka na ngayon, Rod,” halos mangiyakngiyak na sabi niya.
“Angela, hindi ako napasubo. Nobody can force me to marry anyone even if it’s my mother’s wish. I want you. I can’t rest until I have you. You spoiled me for other women. I’m not interested in any of them anymore,” he said, intently looking at her. “What about you, how does marrying me appeal to you?”
“There is no love between us. Paano tayo magiging maligaya?” tugon ni Angela. “And you’re willing to give up your freedom and marry me because of what your mom saw in the office tonight? Rodney, are you not making a mistake?”
Nagsalubong na ang mga kilay ng kaharap. “We will get married whether you agree or not.”
Can mutual desire be a basis for marrying anyone?
