1 Big boss
Hilong hilo si Shanika na binuksan ang kanyang mga mata mula sa pagkakatulog. She can hear the water drops from the Bathroom and the shower is opened, sounds like someone is taking a bath.
Kinusot kusot nya ang kanyang mga mata in desperation to clearly see her surroundings. "The smell doesn't seem familiar." Namutawi sa isip nya. It took her a minute to completely open her eyes.
Tumambad sa kanyang mata ang kanyang sarili na nakahiga at tila walang saplot, covered by a white sheet, kumabog ang kanyang dibdib na kala mo sasabog!!! WTF DID I DO!!!???
Dali dali nyang sinilip ang ilalim ng kanyang kumot. CONFIRMED!! WALA SYANG SAPLOT! She started to panic, dali dali syang tumayo, tried to find her clothes that are scattered on the floor. Gusto nyang makaalis before she finds out kung sino ang nasa loob ng banyo. Mixed emotions. Her heart is beating so fast she can't even breathe. Gaga ka Nika what did you do to yourself! Isa kang maduming babae. Ano nalang sasabihin ng pamilya mo pag nalaman nila to! Teka, I really can not remember kung nag proteksyon ako! Pagalit nya sa kanyang sarili while nagmamadali sya sa pag suot ng mga dinampot nyang damit.
The water from the shower stopped. The door lock clicked. Napatigil sya at nang laki ang kanyang mga mata. She slowed down and kunwari di sya nagmamadali. Seconds later ng tumambad na sa kanyang harapan ang taong nasa banyo kani kanina lang. Natatakpan ng tuwalya ang mukha habang pinupunasan nito ang buhok na nakatingin sa kanya. This man looks familiar though. Ung biseps at saka ung abs grabe! Napalunok si Nika and she stop breathing. Suddenly, ibinaba na ng lalaki ang kanyang tuwalya para suklayan ang buhok nito. Lalong namilog at nang laki ang kanyang mga mata ng makita ang lalaki. BOSS? Tanging nasabi nya sa kanyang sarili.
The man suddenly walked to her. Lumapit ito sakanya and gave her $30,000 worth of check.
What the f***? 'Yun lang ang nasabi nya sa kanyang sarili. Shocked. She looked at the check eyes wide. What is she going to do with that? Para saan un? The last time she check she is a secretary not a prostitute. Then the silence breaks by her Boss while he is wearing his pants.
"Don't be insulted. It's for your silence. No one should know, no strings attached. This is the first and the last."
Lee Saunders. The youngest Korean-American businessman in the US Perfume Empire. The one and only founder of LeeMaz ScentSation Corp., and the prestigious president of The Saunders Holdings. Their company has 105 franchise in the US, 2 headquarters and more than 50 factories. This huge corporation doesn't want a lot of business partners, pero lahat ng mga taong naka link sa kanilang pangalan at kompanya ay paniguradong kilala sa buong bansa at sa lahat ng panig ng mundo. That is how powerful and known his Boss is.
Also, he has other businesses in China, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Europe, India, and the Philippines. He is known as one of the hottest males not just in the United States but all over the world, his masculine body and domineering facial expression is where he became famous. Emotionless. Heartless and Rude is how he is being defined by his employees. He is 36 yrs old yet he is not married nor never been in a relationship because for him, all women are going to rip off his bank account and waste his money for cosmetics and beauty products. So, he settles for a Fling when he needs to release the heat.
"Ms. Reyes are we on the same page here or should I hire a replacement tomorrow and ask you to go back from where you came from?" Inis na tanong ni Lee kay Nica while he is wearing his shoes.
Alarmed and startled, parang binuhusan ng Ice cold water and bumbunan ni Nica. "I understand Boss." naka yukong sagot niya. Kung hindi lang para sa pamilya ko at sa nanay kong may sakit mag reresign talaga ako at di mo na ako kailangang pag bantaan na papalitan. Impaktong two! Sambit ni Shanica sa loob loob nya.
"Great! I don't want you to be attached. Don't call me, nor txt me if it is not business related. What happened to us last night is something we both agreed with. What happened in this hotel room, stays in this hotel room. Understood?" sabay lunok ni Lee at tila nag aalinlangan sa susunod nyang sasabihin. "Plus you did not tell me I am your first."
Namula ng husto ang mga pisngi ni Nica, which secretly made Lee smile a little.
Ina mo di ko nga alam na may nagyari satin. Ni pangalan ko nga di ko na matandaan kagabi sa kalasingan ko. Ikukuwento ko pa sayo virginity ko? Bulong ni Nica sa kanyang sarili habang nakayuko.
"Miss Reyes take a leave. I'll give you 5days. Report back on monday. That would hurt a lot. Buy medicines. I'll get going." Sabi ng binata habang palabas ng pintuan.
