"Ms. You have a meeting later with the Fly PH at 1 pm. Another meeting with the board at 3 pm and the rest is for signing some documents." Mayi uttered as she scanned on her papers and then glanced at me with an awkward smile.
The same, stern face that I always have every day of work has been plastered again the moment I started to work here as a head. I am working here again for about two weeks and everything felt so normal. Investors that we got after the merging with Uno's company has been decreased, although some of them stayed, some are not me and Pacifica that much without Uno's presence so they pulled it all out.
It saddened me a bit, it feels like I am not as efficient as what I am trying to be and they couldn't see my potential so they decided not to stay, but I couldn't blame them because business is a gamble. You win or you lose. In this case, I am working so hard together with my employees not to go back to the top but to lift the company from the mud.
He must be freaking kidding me. I actually thought girls are the only creatures who are hard to predict not until Uno came into my life. He was one heck of a difficult person!He was furious at me and he doesn't want me anymore. How many times should I remind myself that we are now in the process of our annulment and just waiting for the trials? We are not the married couple before, and asking me to eat with him again after two weeks of not seeing each other is just weird. It doesn't seem or sound so right."Girl this is legit, I think Uno still loves you and he wants to win you back! This is your time!" Vanessa let go of her milk tea and clapped her hands."I mean you've been waiting for this, right? And Uno is making the first moves! Grab it already!"I lazily lifted my eyes at her, then back to my laptop. I am in my Mom's house, occupying one of the rooms ever since I left Uno's penthouse. It's already 8 pm, those times where I should be hugging my pil
His words made my mind stop working. This might sound so cliché but the whole place became so silent, the backgrounds blurred and the only thing that I could see is Uno's serious face, his hand at the table, and all that I could hear is the repeated words saying that I should go home with him."Are you...out of your mind?" I asked after a couple of seconds in silence. His eyes were still glued on me, his lips were pursed in a grim line, and his arm extended at the table, giving me the duplicate keys of his penthouse that I returned when I left."You are kidding me, Uno." I nervously laughed and glanced at the keys."I mean I don't understand! We already signed the papers and the only thing we are waiting for are the trials! Why are you suddenly asking me to go back to your house when we already quit this marriage?" I added.He sighed and left the keys on the table, putting his hand back at his knees."I...tore the contract." He cocked his he
"Mom! Mom!"I opened my eyes when I heard a voice coming from a girl. I lifted myself and glanced at the whole place. I am inside the living room of our mansion, sitting on top of our maroon sofa."Mom!" I heard a small spit of laughter on the door towards our garden. I furrowed my brows as I felt the urge to step outside and search for the owner of the voice. My steps are odd. I want to walk faster, but my feet seemed heavy that I wasn't able to do what I want and instead have these dramatic steps towards the place.The harsh sun rays hit my face the moment I stepped out of our living room. The trees are high, but the gaps in between the leaves and some small branches made it possible for the rays to hit my skin. I covered my face and glanced from side-to-side, searching for the girl who woke me up from my slumber."Mom! Yoohoo! I'm here!"My heart raced. The sudden feeling of excitement and nervousness are whirling inside my system, and the next
Uno Saldivar's PoVEver since I laid my eyes on her, I knew she would be a big thing in my life. She always thought that I am weird because I stayed for too long even when she keeps on pushing me away.It was one hectic morning, I just got home from our out of the country vacation and I forgot that I need to transfer to a new school. I still have this jetlag, my head is aching that I couldn't focus on the things I need to do before this day ends, and it starts with enrolling. It was just a week before the academic year starts, and I am already hurrying because I am not sure if the University that I want is still accepting late enrollees. I don't want to use the power of my family, but if they wouldn't accept me, then I will have to ask a favor to my grandmother and let her talk to the head just so I could go to this school.My black, thick-rimmed glasses are falling. My big shirt felt so thick against my skin that sweat started to fall down my face. The line is
Farrah.That was her name.With her black hair, brownish-red lipsticks, artificial curls, and narrow nose, she got me. I know from that day that I like her. This was the first time that I felt this kind of attraction.I normally have crushes on celebrities and artists, some from my past school but with Farrah, it was different. I spent some months just watching her and occasionally approached her. May it be for a small pageant she won, a contest whom she said she doesn't like but is competitive enough to win and her birthday. I will sometimes greet her every time we will see each other, but I just found that a bit weird so I stopped myself from doing it and just smile when our eyes will meet.Until I no longer like how boys hold him. She was a boy magnet! Every boy from the hallway would always turn their heads the moment she walks in the middle like a ramp model! It was making me angry, so I tried to be close to her and asked her if I can court her.
"Are you really that damn in love with her that you will let your pride be stepped on, Uno?"Auton, my old friend from my previous school visited me after that day. I didn't mean to tell her this story, but he asked me what's going on with Farrah and me.And yes, he knows how much I adored that girl. And he somehow hates her, telling me that Farrah will only bring me pain and nothing more."You don't understand because you aren't in love yet, but you will know once you do." I defended."No, if I will fall in love I will make sure that she knows my worth. Not like that. I will never let someone hurt me just because I love her." He shook his head.I just ignored his remarks, pretending that I am deaf. Because no one can ever make me change my mind. I got hurt, I forbid myself on texting her for days and not show up myself. I just hope that she will miss me and text me. When that happens, I will come running again even when she isn't rushing at all. T
She knows I love her that much that's why she is not worried g about being left behind nor think of what I would feel.That was what I realized after spending time inside my room without having to answer her calls and texts. It may look and sound like a gay, but I really hate how she can make me cry.When I came to school and talked with the juniors, she suddenly showed herself and looks like she will talk to me so I marched as fast as I could–not wanting to talk to her. I can still remember her words. It was etched on my mind, and I will not be able to talk to her unless all those thoughts already left my mind.I was walking fast when I heard her groan, I was in the middle of thinking whether I will go back to help her or not but just decided to resist her.I heard her calling my name repeatedly. I tried so hard not to turn my back, but I ended up walking back to her to check if she's fine.A fucking in love idiot who can't even withstand he
"Dude, stop staring at her you look like a damn stalker," Auton whispered on my ear before drinking on his glass.Today is an engagement party for Aliya's Mom and Farrah's dad. Almost all their business partners are present, including the Saldivar group. Ever since I have been appointed as the new CEO of our empire, I invested in their company. I know we had a deal that we shouldn't care about each other's lives, but I just can't help it. I need to have a glimpse of her. I've been gone for years, I asked my grandfather to train me overseas just so I could avoid myself from running back to her but the moment I stepped outside the plane, I know I will never be able to do it.At first, I thought living in the same country would be easy, but I'm wrong. We have the same circle of business partners, and I heard, she is helping on managing their company. There are some days where I feel so lucky, I will meet or see her.Crossing a street, buying coffee, going towards h
