‘i dont like that idea Tony, it sounds
childish’ Aice said as they entered Tony’s
‘thats the solution Alice. I’ve thought
about it severally. At least, by the time
she comes back, she would be more
matured and ready to accept you’
‘that wont solve anything at all dearie.
She will ony hate me more. And that she
was right afterall, i ony came into your
family to cause havoc between the both
of you. Isnt that what she thinks of me
already Tony? I want nothing more than
to clear that misunderstanding. And that
i’m here for peace not to ruin your

Tony sighed ‘i really dont get you at all
Alice. Do you want to suffer?’
‘no, i will not suffer. A small kid like
Maria can never make me suffer. Tony, i

‘you wouldnt get married to me?’
‘no Tony. But i have to try my possible

a mother. At least, like a friend’

‘Tony, why this hatred? She is your
daughter for crying out loud!’
‘and i love her! I want the best for her
and i love you too. I want the best for
you as well but since she’s finding it
difficult to accept you, she should just
leave and go somewhere far, at least, till
she becomes mature’ he sat on the bed.

trying to do now but in the nearest
