The truth is, I wanted now to back out from this project but I know I can’t. First of all, LHI was not a simple client. Second, I knew what Luna had went through just to get this meeting. Third, I don’t want to give them a wrong impression about my company, CIC. And lastly, this project has nothing to do with what happened between me and their CEO.
I shook my head. My twins were very good in choosing their father.
Jace guided us in a conference type of room. We went straight to the door behind the office table. I already noticed this door awhile ago. I thought it was a room especially prepared for their CEO, in case he will bring girls and have sex with them. He looks naughty and have many hookups. I really thought that having a one night stand was already his hobby.
I was really shocked when I saw the room behind his office table. As I said, it was a conference type of room. It has a long table, seven office chairs, and a 70” flat screen TV for presentation. I also notice that in the left side of the room, the glass wall were frosted type where you can use as a white board.
I was so amazed with this idea! It really maximize the space of the office. I think I can also do this in my office with some twist of course. I feel so excited with my office sudden makeover.
LHI was truly an amazing one, from the looks of their hotel to their offices, I was very speechless on how they work. The impression that I got about them made me more eager to get this project. I have worries though, if we got this deal, it may complicate things in my personal life.
Though, I was a bit worried about this project, I was still able to present well to them.
We don’t have yet the design for them because LHI has yet to give details for this project. All we know was that they were now planning to open up a resort here in the Philippines. They did not release anymore details about the project. We don’t have any idea where they are planning to put up the resort.
What I present to them were things about my company, sample works of our company that were related to hotels and resorts.
I actually have a design idea for this project. LHI has been one of my dream clients to have, I did some research about them long ago that is why I have an idea on the core or signature design of LHI. Despite that, it will be very hard for me to present something when I had no idea about the project or even just the size of the location of the resort.
In all fairness he seem serious while listening to my presentation. There's no hint of any funny business.
Our discussion regarding this project were serious and professional. And with the flow of our discussion, there's a high chance for us to get this project. I’m not even sure if I wanted to win this.
"I think we've heard enough. You have a high chance of getting this project. But I can't still guarantee that because I still have few companies to meet." He said in a formal tone.
I am not really used with his formal tone and business aura. This side of him was very far from his playfulness and naughtiness when I met him in the bar and mall. I really find him not bad to be the father of my twins.
"We understand Mr. Escarrer. I guess we just have to wait for your decision. It will be a great honor to have this project with us." I said to end this meeting.
When the meeting ended, we both offer a handshake. When I offer a handshake to Mr. Escarrer, he held my hand more tightly.
My forehead furrowed. Then I saw him smirk, His face went closer to mine.
"I'm glad that you are this good. I think it‘s fate that keeps on binding us. Don't you think?" He whispered.
"So you mean we'll get this project?" I asked him in a whispered.
"There's a high chance." He told me with the same low voice.
"Well, I hope not." I said.
He barely moved away. "What do you mean?"
It’s my turn to went closer to his face to whispered.
"To prove to you that it was not fate but just a mere coincidence."
I removed my hand from his.
"Bye Mr. Escarrer." I said then smirk.
I felt Luna’s soft punch on my shoulder when we went inside the car.“Care to explain what happen after our meeting? What is with you and Mr. Escarrer? Do you guys know each other” Luna asked me.It was very obvious that she was very curious about me and Mr. Escarrer.I actually asked myself if I will tell her the truth or not. As much as possible I wanted to keep this a secret."I don't want this project anymore!" I said instead of answering her.Her eyes widen and I got a soft punch again from her.‘“What
I rolled my eyes to make him think that I am not affected by what he said. "Can you stop with your absurd idea?! If you want a baby, then go and find someone else to carry your child.”“I don’t want to have a child yet okay? But if it happened then I don’t have a choice but to accept the responsibility. And also, I just said that because from your action right now, you look like a pregnant woman.” “It may also be because I was so stress.” I said trying to defend myself and stop him from thinking that I might be pregnant.His forehead creased. "You're stress because of th
A month after our meeting with LHI, Luna gave me the good news.We got the project!I can't believe we got this project! Many companies applied for this project, and I can’t think that among all the companies, we got chosen!I can’t stop myself from thinking about the things that Ulie said to me while we were eating in the Korean-Japanese restaurant a few weeks ago.I grabbed my phone and started to call him. I need to ask him for my peace of mind."Have you heard of the good news?" He said upon picking up my call."Yes. But
I gave Ulie my penthouse address. This is the safest place to talk. I need to be careful, especially now that my pregnancy is the hottest issue now. The media are eager to get some scoop.If the media found out about my meeting with Ulie, they will surely assume that he is the father of my child. Though it's true, I want to keep it a secret as long as I could.Everything is a mess. I was planning to go to the US, but because of the LHI project, that plan of mine has slipped my mind.I initially plan to stay in the US until I gave birth to my twins so that it will not be an issue.When I’m done giving birth, I will go back to the Philippines and let the media assume that my twins are ado
Ulie’s parents will be here in the Philippines next month. He decided to tell them about my condition by then.The idea of meeting his parents makes me nervous.I don’t have any idea about Ulie’s fiance. I don't even know her name. I will be considered a rich person but compare to Ulie’s wealth. I am nothing. I am not sure if his parents will accept me.I don't have any plan to marry their son. I think that's enough for me not to worry about his parents. I should be okay whether they will like me or not because no matter what they think of me or my situation, I will keep my twins.Two weeks have passed when Ulie found out about my pregnancy.<
Ulie asked me to come with him to the airport to fetch his parents. Today is the scheduled arrival of his parents.I was hesitant because I want them to settle down first before we started to reveal to them about the twins, but Ulie keeps on insisting that I should go with him. I had no choice but to oblige. I chose to wear a straight-cut long sleeve dress with a busy pattern to camouflage my nearly six-month bump. I partnered it with black Balenciaga slingback ballerinas flat shoes.I wanted to hide my pregnancy first from his parents. I don't want to shock them the moment they saw me having a baby bump with Ulie.We've arrived at the airport. I told them I gave him
I don't think it's right to eavesdrop on their conversation. I decided to went back to Jace’s table. “What happened, Ms. Cabello? Why did you come back here?” Jace asked.“Ulie has a visitor, and I don't think it's right I disturb them. Also, you guys are supposed to come with me to this meeting, right?” I said instead.It's true, though. They suppose to come with me to the meeting. But this two are here busy talking with each other.I saw them blushed. I lift my right brow. Something is fishy between this two.I just shook my head. It's not
Time flies so fast. I'm in the last month of my pregnancy. I might see my twins anytime soon.Luna and Kaela (Ulie’s sister) organize a baby shower for me. Though my pregnancy got exposed, Ulie being the father of my twins, was able to hide from the media.I know that we can’t hide the twins’ father forever, but as much as possible, I want to have a safe delivery first before I face the potential crisis that I need to deal with.I formally met Ulie’s sister, Kaela Ulyssa Escarrer, a week after I met their parents. Ulie and Kaela were the ones in charge of their hotels in Asia. She had a meeting in Dubai last week, so she was not there when Uli
