Alexia Mendoza instantly knew Richard was within the area. For some reason, her senses would go overdrive, aware of his presence. She didn’t know why. The first time she learned about Lucas Reyes’ nephew, she took all the information she could get about the drug lord’s most trusted relative. She had to cover all bases to know how she would act in front of Lucas’s favorite nephew. If he were smart, she would know when to be careful not to blow her cover.Continue reading Undercover
Warning: Suggested violence.
It was dark. She almost could not see anything. The closed-door of the closet where she was hiding was blocking her from everything was the only safe haven she could have at this moment. She was shaking. She was scared. Another loud shot rang outside, and her hands immediately flew to her mouth, avoiding so much as not letting any sound to come out of her lips. She was void with the ability to speak since she was born, but being deaf would not stop her. She could not scream, but maybe her wails could get anyone’s attention. She could not do it yet, however. Not while the assailant was still outside, roaming the hall.
Hands in her mouth, she felt the cold metal on her finger. Angrily, she slipped it off, regretting the day that someone put it on her. Salty tears streamed down her face, wetting her hands as she continued to cry quietly. Sweat trickled down her face, as well. It touched the hands, covering her mouth. She has been hiding inside for so long. Nobody expected it. They didn’t see it coming. He was the kindest man she met, whom she thought have accepted her despite her disabilities. She loved him, but she has been wrong after all. He was an opportunist who wanted nothing but power and wealth. And he would get it, even if it takes him to murder her entire family, including her.Continue reading Muted Darkness
The pandemic is still here, and we haven’t seen the light at the end of the tunnel yet. Some countries are still in quarantine. Some have finished the government-imposed lockdown (like here in France). But most of all, every one of us is adapting to the new normal.Continue reading How to Keep your Sanity while in Quarantine?
It’s the last Sunday of September and it’s cold already. I haven’t gone out yet but from what I heard, there was already snow somewhere in the Alps.
Another week has come and gone and October is coming soon. Winter will soon upon us, and then, Christmas! 🙂 Things have been busy at work but I haven’t been physically back in the office. For six months now, I’ve been working from home. Other than that, I keep myself busy with some other things.Continue reading The Sunday Currently
Oscar almost stumbled as he rushed towards the study room where his friends converged for a weekly meeting. Everyone turned when he burst into the door.
One of them, Julian, the Marquess of Willsbur, walked up to him. “Is there anything wrong?”
“I bet you didn’t hear yet about the palace statement today.” Phones were strictly not allowed every time they would meet. For that matter, they were able to finish their discussion on the charity foundations they were supporting and other plans they have as a group of friends.
But today, upon saying that, and noting the urgency in Oscar’s tone, the other five gentlemen in that room took their phones out to check.Continue reading Lost and Found
It was the proverbial fight of good versus evil. Everybody saw it coming. Ever since the self-installed Prime Minister Fran Hurgeb announced martial law and ordered for cleansing , eradicating the half-blooded Doans, Cyphrus and Odessa knew that this called for another challenge. It would be an adventure where they would fight with all their might to defend human rights that has been abused by the evil PM. It would be a fight to take back the kingdom from Hurgeb. It would be a fight that would test their relationship as well.Continue reading Glory of Love
One of the painful thing to see was the obituary of your own parent in the dailies, and knowing at the same time that the mystery on why he was killed still remain. According to the autopsy, he was found poisoned in the dining room. The employees in the mansion were investigated but nobody was found guilty of the crime. Kiara mourned and she was more than glad that her husband never left her side. She and Olivier just got married and the honeymoon was cut upon knowing the tragic demise of her father.Continue reading The Obituary
It was an unconventional meeting, Andrea thought. She tried to piece the puzzle together to form a coherent reason on why Richard came up to her in the bar that evening weeks ago. She was scheduled to deliver a classified information to her boss. But this man was keeping her from leaving the restaurant.
They only knew each other for a few weeks, while she worked in the IT company in Boston that manufactured state-of-the-art computer chips that could trigger a weapon. Being a corporate spy, she was tasked to find out the secret codes that comprised the new chip. This chip would be entrusted to the Homeland Security Department. This was no ordinary chip. If her group would obtain the information before the government does, it would mean a control towards the Nebula Satellite, which was created to get the instruction to aim a high-powered missile towards a programmed destination. The information cost money. She needed that money.
But she had to get rid of this man first.Continue reading Fortune Cookie
“Tell me something about her.”
“Huh?” Keira turned to the yellow Labrador beside her. She knew him as Max, the newcomer in this place who brought along his human… she looked at the man, and then to her own human. She smiled. “What’s on your mind?
“Just tell me something about her. Geez!”Continue reading In the Dog’s Point of View
I don’t know if I will be able to continue with this series of The Sunday Currently. Depending on how you look at it, Sunday is either the start or end of the week. For me, it’s the end of a week/weekend, and today, I started my morning by attending the online streaming of the Catholic mass officiated by H.E. Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle in Rome.
I planned to go to Nice to explore the shops but I feel lazy going out in the hot weather, plus some of the shops that I want to go are closed today. So I decided to focus more on my blog by posting some travel stuff and scheduling some short stories that I wrote a few years ago.Continue reading The Sunday Currently
