Mikey's POV (Mage's mom)
*Ring* *Ring* I looked at my phone and it's Elsa, my secretary, so I answered it..
"Ma'am, there are tons of clients that has been calling since last last week. What should I do with them?" She asked worriedly.
"Just tell them that I am on a leave. They'll understand it, don't worry." I said to her assuringly.
"Wait Ma'am, hold on, someone's calling." She said nervously.
"Hello, Silver's company. How may I help you?" "No Ma'am, this is her secretary, she's on her leave." "What? No Ma'am please." "But-" That's the things that I heard.
"Ma'am, are you still there?" She asked worriedly.
"Yes, I am here. Who's that?" I asked nervously.
"It's Ms. Salazar, Ma'am." She said.
"Oh, what did she said?" I asked.
"She said that she's backing out." She said a little bit worried.
"What? Why?" I asked in confusion. No, she can't..
"She said that you do not cooperate with her well and if you didn't call her any minute, she'll back out, I tried to tell her that you'll be back in just a few days but she hanged up on me." She explained.
"Okay, thank you. I'll hang up so I can call her." I said then I hanged up. I'm very stressed right now..
"Hello Ms. Salazar, this is Mrs. Silvers." I said sweetly.
"Oh, hello." She answered.
"I'm sorry for interrupting you from what are you doing, but can we talk about our partnership?" I asked.
"What do you want to do now? You didn't show up yesterday and the other night." She said.
"I'm sorry for not showing up but can you give us another chance?" I pleaded. Oh, please..
"Okay, I'll give your company a chance only because grandma is friends with your grandma. 8 pm sharp. If you're late then goodbye." She said bluntly. W H A T ? !
"Thank you but, 8 pm? I'm sorry but my daughter just got home yesterday and I promised that we'll have a little get together today." I explained nervously.
"Then choose. Remember Mikey, we don't really need you, you need us." She said then hanged up.
What would I choose?
"Jack." I said while knocking on his door. "Jack." No answer.. So I just opened the door. I am about to put Jack's clothes on his bed when I heard his bathroom door opened. I turned around and 'Oh my g-' His half body is just covered in a towel, I could see his eight packed abs. No no no, I hurriedly put the clothes on the bed, turned away and said, "There's your clothes."
"You may look." He said teasingly.
"Heh." I said and then headed to the door. My my my my.
"Thank you Mage." He said and I nodded. I walked out of the room and closed the door.
I headed to my room and took a bath and prepared for our little get together. I am excited for later..
"Hey Mage." I said, trying to start a conversation. We are here in their living room, waiting for her parents to come down. She looked very beautiful tonight by the way.
"Hey Jack." She said.
"So...." I said, not knowing what to say or how to start.
"So what?" She asked.
"What's your favourite food?" I asked weirdly. Stupid question.
"What's my favourite food? Are you high?" She asked while chuckling and I rolled my eyes.
"I'm trying to start a conversation you know." I said and she smiled.
"And asking what is my favourite food is how you start a conversation?" She asked teasingly and I just rolled my eyes.
"Sorry we're late, just had some business to fix." Mage's mom said.
"Business huh? What kind of business?" Mage asked teasingly while giving her a knowing look.
"Anyway, let's go now. We're running late." Mage's dad interrupted while heading out.
Mage and I looked at each other and then laughed. They're obvious.
Then we headed to Uncle Harry's car. Uncle is on the driver seat, course he will be the one that'll drive, Auntie is on the shotgun and Mage and I are in the backseat. Uncle Harry started the engine and then he started to drive. We still don't know where we are heading.
It has been 20 minutes and I still don't know where are we going.
"Jack." I whispered quietly.
"Yeah?" He whispered back.
"Do you know where are we heading?" I whispered-asked.
"No." He said while shaking his head and I shrugged.
I don't have any options, I have to ask mom and dad.
"Mom, dad, where are we going?" I asked and dad shrugged.
"You'll find out later." Mom said while smiling.
Where would it be?
