Chapter 1. Beginning

She grew up with her grandma. She became friendly, and studied hard. Endured poverty and worked hard so that she could fulfill her mother's wishes. Even though she didn't promise her mother before, she worked hard to achieve what her mother wanted. She grew up with her closest female cousin, Divlen. But their status is different because their parents are wealthy. Because Jester is smart, she gets a scholarship to high school. She also became a working student at the school they attended. Even when she went to college, she remained a scholar. Until they graduated from the Criminology course and entered the National Bureau of Investigation. She and her cousin were admired in the field of gun handling and martial arts. They fear nothing, so many in their department like them. But none of them dared to approach because they were afraid of the bravery of Inspector Jester Navarro and Detective Divlen Jacutin.

She was alone at her mother's grave when she spoke, “Mom, here I am now, I have fulfilled what you dreamed for me. I'm sorry if I didn't make a promise to you before. Because I want to do it in action and not just in one word, I lost you because of me because you protected me. I salute you, you are the superhero of my life. I love you so much. Furthermore, I promise no one can oppress me.” Her tears fell at the same time. 

Later, she remembered the last moment she was with her mother. 

“Listen carefully, mama loves you so much. Forgive me, I almost ruined you, my poor child. Always remember, be kind and get on with life, take care of yourself and your grandma. Promise me that you will be successful someday.” Carmen caressed her poor daughter's face.

“Mama… please, don't leave me, mom. What will I do if you're gone?” Her tears continued to flow.

 “Forgive me-----” Carmen's hand fell at the same time, and her eyes slowly closed with tears.

“Mama, wake up… Please wake up. What about me? Mama… mama.” She ran outside to ask the neighbors for help.

 “Help me…  Somebody helped my mom. Please…” she screamed.

The neighbors immediately came and asked why her hands and clothes were bloody? The three men went inside and found two dead bodies. They check for pulses, but both are lifeless. So, they stopped messing with the bodies because they might be blamed, and they immediately called the police. The authorities arrived immediately and are investigating if anyone saw the incident. But everyone denied that they knew anything about what happened. Since Jester has no other relatives in the village, she was temporarily brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development. There the policewoman questioned her and she narrated the whole incident. Because she is still a minor, she cannot be locked up, and she acted in self-defense. While taking care of the corpses, Jester first stayed in the care of the (DSWD).  And also called her grandma who is in Cebu.

“Partner, are you okay?” Her cousin approached when she saw her crying and looking into the void. 

“Yes. I'm fine. I just suddenly remembered the bitter thing that happened to me and mom,” she answered sadly, and wiped the tears from her eyes.

“I know it's hard to forget what happened to you before. But you should move on, and start seeking the man you can spend the rest of your life with,” her cousin suggested. 

“The question is, will any man like me?” Her face was serious as she spoke.  

“And why not? You're beautiful, and not only that, you're also a good law enforcement officer.” She smiled.

“Alright. I will find a man to be with me forever, but on one condition,” she said. 

“What condition is that?” she asked back seriously. 

“First you look for your future husband, and then I will also look for my future husband after you. Do we have a deal?” she asked with a smile. 

"No way! You will go first before me because you are older than me," she justified.

Their conversation went nowhere so they decided to change their topic. They both took their conversation seriously and returned to their mission. While they continued to talk, they also ate the food they brought to take-out. They also spent two hours sitting at Jester's mother's grave. She made the most of the opportunity that they were in Mindanao, because she knew that it would be a long time before she could return due to the nature of her work. Until they left her mother's grave with tears in her eyes because until now, what happened to her and her mom is still vivid in her memory.

“Partner, where are you planning to go today?” Divlen asked.

 “Let's go back to the hotel first, so we can rest. After all, our meeting is five o'clock in the afternoon," she replied.

“Alright,” she agreed.

They are currently in the car and driving down the road to the hotel where they checked in. They were about to cross the corner when the light suddenly turned red, and she immediately stepped on the brakes. While they were waiting for the signal to change, Inspector Navarro turned to the other side, and she saw the male snatcher who suddenly snatched the shoulder bag of an old woman.  

“Shit!" she exclaimed. She got down quickly, which surprised her cousin, Detective Jacutin.

“Partner…" she shouted in surprise.  

She quickly got out to move to the steering wheel because the signal had already turned green. And they have also turned their backs on many cars with their horns constantly honking. She parked the car on the side of the road and followed her cousin, who continued to chase the snatcher. Until Inspector Navarro caught the snatcher, and she made him kneel on the ground.  Divlen arrived, and she supported the elderly woman who owned the shoulder bag, she was gasping for breath. Detective Jacutin immediately called the police station to have the snatcher arrested. The police immediately responded, and they arrived in less than twenty minutes.

At four o'clock in the afternoon, they got dressed to get to their meeting. When they arrived at the NBI headquarters. They immediately went straight to Chief Gary Villanueva's office, and before entering, they knocked first.

“Come in!” And both enter at the same time.

“Good morning, Chief Villanueva,” they greeted and saluted the exalted one.

“Good morning! Please sit down."
