“Marriage isn’t a part of my plans at all, Emily. But I do know that when I get married, that’ll be it. Umaasa akong sa oras na makasal tayo ay magiging normal ang pagsasama natin,” sabi ni Brandon.
“Iyan din ang inaasahan ko,” pagsang-ayon niya.
“As your husband, I will provide for you, give you everything you could possibly want. And in return, you will be a good wife to me; your time is mine, your heart and your soul.”
Napalunok siya nang maramdaman ang tila pag-ayon ng kanyang puso sa sinabi nito. “I… I am already yours…” she said quietly, her face down.
A satisfied smile crossed his lips. “And I’m yours as well, sweet Emily. Now and forever…”
There are no feelings involved. Alam niyang iyon ang katotohanan—for Brandon, at least.
