I was still feeling rather cross that he left me on my own to face my parents --  he had previously promised that he'd be there for me, every step of the way. Though I knew that he isn't turning his back on me, it's just that I don't want to be alone when I break to my parents The News.

I can clearly recall the roller coaster of emotions that was the weekend. It was Papa's 51st birthday, the very first excuse that I get to treat him because I have received my first ever paycheck from my first ever job. But it's The News that I have been at a loss for on how to break it to them, especially to Papa, the birthday boy... What a birthday gift my announcement would be! Haha. :P

I don't want to delve anymore into the nitty-gritty stuff. But boy, was I glad that everything went well! None of the scenes reminiscent of primetime telenovelas that I have conjured up in mind happened. So I came back to work, the following Monday with an unburdened heart. Just a little sad that he wasn't there with me, to show my father that he is man enough to face him and his possible wrath. (Okay, enough of the melodramas!)
