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 are you saying?! Are you crazy?! You waited this project with LHI for so long and now you are saying that?!” She said in disbelief.
“Yes I wanted it before but now I am not sure.” I softly whispered but enough for her to hear.
She raised her right eyebrow. “Is this because of Mr. Escarrer? You wanted to missed this kind of opportunity because of him. Tell me the truth, what is with you and Mr. Escarrer?”
I just avoided her gazed and remain silent.
“You really avoiding to answer my question. You know that it made me more curious to know what is with you and him.”
Then her eyes suddenly widen. “Wait Ellie! OMG! Don’t tell me he was the guy?!” She started to get hysterical again.
She was still trying to absorb the idea that came out from her. She can’t still get over it.
“He was so hot girl! OMG! You are so lucky! Did you know how hard I stop myself from drooling because of his handsomeness?! Then I will found out that he was the father of you twins! You are the luckiest girl!”
I am not sure anymore if she was still talking to me or her self because I can’t butt in.
“Girl don’t you have any reaction?” She suddenly asked after her long dialogue.
I just rolled my eyes. “Of course he was handsome! Do you think that I will choose an ugly guy and gave him my v card?! It’s already given that one of my qualification on that night was his looks. Its my child that we are talking about here! My twin has to be a good genes both from me and their father.” I explained to her.
“Wow! I can’t get over with your cockiness girl! But still you are so lucky! You don’t really want to tell him about your twins? It’s your chance to get him!”
I was stunned from what she said. I can’t believe what I am hearing from her. Is this really my friend?
“Luna I think you are forgetting something, I am Penelope Quinn Cabello, I never chased nor seduced any guy?!” I said a bit irritated.
She just rolled her eyes on me. “Oh well you never chased a guy but you got yourself pregnant.”
My eyes widen. “You and your mouth!”
She really don’t when to stop when she was overwhelmed with something. She forgot for a moment that aside from the OB it was only me and her who knew about my pregnancy.
"Sorry I was carried away."
I just shook my head.
Today is Sunday and I don’t have work, I was just in my penthouse.
If I were to asked I would like to spent my whole day here in the house and to sleep more, but my twins looks like they don’t like the idea of just staying home.
I was craving for something. I just can’t say what is it. I decided to just went to the mall and do some food hunting.
I already went to all my favorite restaurant but still I can’t find exactly what I want to eat.
It was almost 2pm. Twins what do you want us to eat? It was already past lunch.
While I was walking, I saw a Korean-Japanese buffet. This was the new trend for the millennials here today. Samgyupsal is what they call it. But this restaurant was also offering Japanese food.
I can't believe it! For just P550 you'll be able to eat as much as Korean and Japanese food you want. But since I don't have someone to eat with me, I need to pay for two person.
Fair enough. The cheapest buffet that I went was worth P1400, the rest were P2,800 to P5,000.
Good thing lunch time was almost over so I don't need to wait. I heard that in this kind of buffet the line was crazily long.
I ordered all the food in the menu. Since it was a buffet, I can taste all of it.
My table look like a feast with all the food. I can't wait to eat.
I was already enjoying my food when someone when on my table.
"Can you eat all that?" The man said.
I was pissed when I looked at the person who said that.
"It's none of your business. Kindly leave me alone!" I hissed.
Instead of following my words, he say down across my chair.
“I am just concern about you okay? You might get a stomachache from eating all these foods.” He said.
"Thanks for the concern but I can manage." I told him.
"Do you still think that it‘s all coincidence?" He then asked.
I rolled my eyes. I just wanted to eat, but why is this guy went here and start talking nonsense.
"Can you just let me eat?" I said almost in tears because I just wanted to eat in peace and I am getting frustrated thanks to him.
I saw concern in his eyes. Oh come on!
"Fine fine. But I will not let you eat all this. You were so slim, where will all this food go if you will eat all these?”
“You can just tell me that you wanted to eat free food you don’t need to told me those nonsense.” I said in an irritated voice.
"What? I can pay for this. You haven’t pay this food right?"
"Whatever?! Can I eat now?" I hissed.
I really wanted to just eat but I can’t do that because of this guy in front of me.
Twins why is your father like this?! He is getting into my nerves!
"Fine. Let's eat."
I smiled because finally I can eat. I tasted all the food that was in the table.
I was enjoying my food when this guy started to talk again and this time he made me feel nervous.
"You are gaining weight. With your moods and the way you eat, I would really think that you're pregnant with my child."
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
Ulie’s parents wanted us to live in Escarrer’s mansion, but I decline.I already prepared everything for my twin's arrival in my penthouse. I renovated one of the rooms in my penthouse three months ago and made it the twin’s nursery room.I love plain, simple, and minimalist design. I made a neutral shared nursery room with white furniture, open shelving, a crystal chandelier, and pink and blue linens and toys.I showed it to Ulie when he started to stay in my penthouse. He likes it, and we both decided to take care of the twins here in my penthouse. Ulie requested to let him stay here in my penthouse for t
