"Good morning, Ma'am ashley"Greetings from an employee

I just smiled at them and went straight to my office.I was about to enter my office when I saw a familliar man sitting inside.

I entered the room and then the man stand up to greet me

"Oh hi,good morning miss alvarez"The man smiled at me

"Who are you?"I went straight to my desk to put my bag and to sit

"Sorry, i forgot to tell you,by the way my name is jeric lee santos"inilahad niya ang kaniyang pero di ko yon tinanggap"oh,sorry attitude ka pala"

"Excuse me,sino ka para mag sabi na ma attitude ako? Atsaka bakit ka nandito sa loob ng opisina ko?"mataray na sabi ko sa kanya habang nakaupo at siya naman ay nakatayo sa harap ko

"Well,miss ashley I just want to inform you about your father's debt to my company"He told me with a smile and I just stared him in the eye

"Oh really? Magkano?"seryoso kong sabi sa kanya

"Well,100 millionUSD,so i convert it to Philippine peso"sabi niya habang pinaglalaruan ang hawak niyang ballpen

"Tell me,pinapatagal mo pa tong usapan"Naiinis na sabi ko sa kanya ,because I still have a meeting later

"Well, it's only 5 billion"i saw him laughing

"It's only? You fucking kidding me? Or dinadaya mo lang ako para perahan ako no?"nakakainis na tong lalaking to ha.

"Uhm, actually pwede mong isearch sa google kung magkano ba yung 100 million usd sa pilipinas"mas lalo akong nainis sa kaniya nung kinindatan niya ako,

ARGGHHHHHH,I HATE THIS GUYYY

dahil wala akong tiwala sa kaniya sineach ko nga sa laptop ko..

"I told yah, its 5billion"aniya

"Uh-huh, its only 4.8 billion,ano yan tubo?"iritang sabi ko sa kaniya

"Well, of course miss Ashley Gabrielle alvarez,by the way unique name huh"lakas magbiro nitong lalaking to ha.

"You can call my secretary to pay you"I turned my attention back to my laptop

"I don't have your number miss and your secretary"i have no choice,I just gave him my number

"So you can leave i have meeting"i stand and fix my outfit,i am wearing nude Pure long sleeve round neck skater dress and a high heels with my chanel bag

"Nice outfit miss alvarez"kumindat siya sakin bago lumabas sa opisina ko,mas lalo akong naiinis sa ginagawa niya

I took my cellphone out of my bag because someone called

"Ma'am ashley,ready na po ang conference room"my secretary said

"Uhm,yeah I'm going"i ended the call and Going to the conference room

I opened the door and all the board members stood up to greet me...I went straight to my seat and just ignored them.

"So let's start"the old man said,i didn't know their names because i do not care about them

"Thankyou sir"agatha gave an old man a sweet smile,and looked at my eyes and i saw she smirked a bit

I became serious when she started the presentation,at binigyan nila ako ng copy ng presentation niya

The designs of the houses were just like mine that i show them yesterday.only enhanced a bit.maraming corners.modern ang steel roofing,at glass windows.Painted with maroon and cream,like how the RHI's built their houses.

Phase two has my design! Almost! Isang bloke ng single-detached houses in modern design.Halos tulad ng disenyo sa akin,nagka iba lang ng paint.

Phase three has the same design with both phases one and two,modern parin. Iyon nga lang, halos walang corners. Box type and attached with each other! Ito iyong plano niya, iyong nga lang, hindi ko inasahang moderno pala iton. I thought shes going for the usual type?

What happened?

"Bakit ko ginawang tatlong phases ito?"tanong ni agatha

Binagsak ko ang mga papel at tumingin na lamang sa kanyang mata.

"Una sa lahat, ayaw kong maliitin ang mga kliyente natin. For sure, not all of the poor will buy houses from here-"

I cut her off."The target is middle clas

I could see the irritation on his face but he calmly turned to the other board members...

"Still"aniya

Engineer alfred turned to me. He smiled at me. I saw how Tita Relani looked at us behind her eye glasses.

"So I've decided to design something for those who have extra budget.I know that families wanted more space. The 35-square house isn't enough for say...a family of five? Kaya mas ma appeal sa kanila ito"

Lumingon ako kay engineer alfred

"Okay lang ba yung mga brands na ginamit niya?"mahinang tanong ko kay engineer alfred

"Okay naman maam kaso medyo pricey kaysa sa idea mo"sagot ni engineer

"I heard yung simentong ginamit niya makati daw iyon?"

"Ah oo maam yun nga lang pag nadikitan mo iyon mangagati yung balat m-"

Natigil ang paguusap namin dahil umepal si agatha

"Excuse me ashley alvarez and engineer alfred bat kayo nag uusap? Kita niyong may sinasabi ako,its so rude for me, please give me a respect"sigaw ni agatha mula sa harap at alam kong lahat ay narinig iyon

"Fyi,its so rude for you That we are not listening to your presentation? Yesterday I complained that you are constantly complaining about my idea?"pagbawi ko sa sinabi niya

"You had a different idea yesterday ashley than me "she smirked and continue what she says

At hanggang sa natapos ang reporting niya ay di nalang ako sumabat..the others clapping their hands but mine is on my desk

"Great idea agatha"Tita relani and her mom smiled at her

"Thanks tita and mommy"para siyang proud na proud sa sarili niya

"Ashley any comments?"mayabang na sabi ni agatha

"Of course i have,baka kasi nakakabastos sayo kung nagsalita ako kanina"lahat ng board members ay tumingin sa akin at sila tita relani at ang nanay niya"first How much will the buyer pay for the house? Kita mo naman sa lahat ng brands na ginamit mo masyadong mahal"i asked her while looking at her eyes

"Of course ashley only for rich people can buy the house, that is imported"Agatha laughed at what he said

I nooded but that is a worst idea"second,I heard people working on the site say that the cement you used is itchy,ceo ka pero di mo alam yung mga nakakasama sa mga tao,tsk"Agatha was surprised by what I said

I heard the board members whispering to each other .

"I agree with miss ashley,masyadong delikado yung simentong sinasabi mo" a male board member said

Agatha shouted"The report is over"everyone stand

I took my things and went out of the conference room...When I came out of the door, someone pulled my arm and slap my face

"How dare you,ang kapal ng mukha mong ipahiya ako sa harap ng maraming tao?"tinignan ko ang mukha ng taong nasa harapan ko at tinignan ang mukha niya na naluluha...ginaya ko ang aking tingin sa buong room at nakita ko doon ang nanay niya at si tita relani

"Stop that,agatha"saway ni tita relani at lumapit sa gawi namin

"No she deserves that slap relani"komento ng nanay ni agatha

Hindi ako makalaban sa kanila dahil andyan si tita relani ayaw kong ma-dissapoint ulit siya sakin

"Kaya namatay yung nanay mo at tatay mo dahil sa makitid mong utak"hinili ni agatha ang buhok ko at hinila ko din yung buhok niya

Inaawat na kami ni tita relani at ng mommy niya

"How dare you say that, you do not know what happened,so do not act like you knows"sigaw ko sa kanya habang nasa gitna namin si tita relani at nanay niya at tumatawag ng guard

Pinapakalma si agatha ng kaniyang nanay pero di siya nakikinig at sumusugod sakin...Maya maya ay may pumasok na mga security sa conference room.

"Ang kapal ng mukha mong ipamukha sakin na wala akong alam sa mga bagay"sigaw niya sakin at pinipilit na kumawala sa kamay ng mha security

"Ha!pinamukha sayong wala kang alam? Bobo ka pala eh"kalmadong sigaw ko sa kanya at pinipilit niya pading kumawala para sumugod sakin

"Rumespeto ka sakin kayang kaya kitang pabagsakin"she said threateningly

"Ako rerespeto sayo? Kahit kailan di ko kayo rerespituhin,for your information kaya mo lang akong pabagsakin,if i snapped my finger kayo ang mawawalan at ako ang aahon,malalaman mo yan pag tinry ko sa inyo, kaya wag kayong magkakamaling banggain ako tandaan niyo yan"sigaw ko at tinatanggal ang kamay ng mga security sakin para makaalis na ko

When I came out of the conference room. I saw everyone looking at me ... And suddenly

"Miss where's relani zykhon?"I looked at the man who asked me and I suddenly stiffened in my position

My chest throbbed so fast that I could not understand ...

"Miss where's relani zykhon?"the man asked again

"Uhm sorry, she is in the conference room"awkward na sabi ko sa kaniya

"Thankyou"tumalikod siya at bigla ulit siyang humarap sakin"you've changed a lot,see you again"at tuluyan na siyang lumakad paalis habang ako ay nanigas sa kinatatayuan...
