You bought a house so you won’t have to see me anymore? Are you sure I’m not adopted because why will you keep pushing me away for a reason I don’t know?” daniella said showing the anger and sadness in her voice. “ what? Why do you have to talk to your mother like that? I only bought the house for you since you like water” arie try to lie. “ thank you mom for ruining my birthday really thanks” Daniella end the call. “ so today is her birthday? How can I forget that? Oh my Arie you are stupid” Arie hit herself stupidly. “ what happened? ” Mr smith asked. “ today is daniella’s birthday, I forgot again” arie breaks into tears. “ don’t worry I will talk to her” Mr smith hug his wife.
Daniella sang all night thinking about Daniel and her ruined birthday ,Daniel on his own regret his decisions greatly but there is nothing he can do, he need the money to pay for his brother’s surgery not knowing daniella actually save the money and was about to give him when he broke with her.
