enough money to rent a better house.

early to look for a part time job. Just stay here and wait until I came back. Okay.

Paulo: okay mom, I understand.

hiring sign while walking she bumped into a man.)

(the man was texting in his old keypad phone)

Belle: oh no! I’m sorry sir, I didn’t mean it. I didn’t see you coming.

Miguel: ( still looking at his phone and texting) It’s okay miss, it’s my fault I was texting that’s why I
wasn’t able to avoid you. ( then he raised his head up to look at the person he bumped up, he was
surprised when he saw the person infront of him.)

Belle: (surprised expression) Oh, Miguel its you!

Miguel: Belle? Yes its me, long time no see!

Belle: Yes, its been how many years, are you busy?

Miguel: No not necessary, is it okay if we talk for a while? It’s been a long time.

Belle: Yes, sure, there’s a park over their maybe we can sit first.

(they walked towards the park and sit on the bench)

Miguel: (started the conversation) so how are you? How’s your life in America last time I heard you
marry an American?

Belle: yes that’s true, but now his dead, that’s also the reason why I came back here in the Philippines,

can pay for our expenses. My husband didn’t left anything when he died, and my son has an illness so I
have to work for us to live.

Miguel: ( in deap thought) Belle, I have something to tell you, I hope you didn’t get mad.

Belle: Say it Miguel, I will try to understand.

Miguel: what if you stay with me, together with your son. I am willing to provide for your needs even if
I’m not rich.

Belle: But, Miguel Is it really okay? Don’t you remember what I did to you?

Miguel: I still remember it, but that’s not what important to me. I’ve been waiting for this time to come.
I really love you until now Belle I don’t want to lose you again.

Belle: I don’t want you to suffer because of us Miguel, my son is sick he has a monthly maintenance. I
don’t think you can afford it.

Miguel: Don’t worry about that Belle I am willing to sacrifice my life just to proved to you that even if I
am not rich I can still support your needs. I will work harder, just give me a chance Belle, please.

Belle: Give me time to think Miguel, it’s hard to decide immediately. I also need to talk to my son about

(When Belle got home )

Paulo: Hi mom, how are you? How is it, were you able to look for a job?
Belle: ( hug her son) hi son, hmm, mom has something to tell you.

Paulo: what is it mom?

Belle: This morning while im looking for a job, I bumped into someone. Surprisingly it was Miguel my
suitor when I was younger.

Paulo: and then, what about him mom?

Belle: when he heard that your dad died, and I was living with you here without nothing, he asked me if
its okay for us to live with him.

Paulo: What? Is he serious? Mom did you tell him about my condition? About our situation?

Belle: yes my son, and he said it’s okay for him, his willing to work in order to support our needs.

Paulo: if that’s the case, for me its okay, but the last say would be coming from you mom. You should
decide about about it.

Belle: I know son, I just want to know your opinion about this.

( Belle can’t sleep the whole night, thinking about miguel’s offer. In the morning she decided to go out
to look for a job again.)

Belle: (while walking) its almost 5 pm, I’ve been walking around, why there is no hiring in all
establishments, I really need to get a job. ( she take a deep breath) maybe I should accept Miguel’s offer,
maybe this is the way of God for us to be united again.

bench where they sit yesterday.)

Miguel: Hi im glad you’re here,
