Pagpasok ni Jessie ay tahimik ang office. Wala namang siyang alam na meeting. Pero nabigla siya ng maglabasan ang mga ka-trabaho sa conference room. Tinanong niya ito pero sinabihan lang siya na confidential daw yun.
"Confidential? Since when?" Takang tanong ni Jessie. Hindi pumasok si Franchesca. Naisip niya baka nagtanan na yung dalawa. Natawa lang siya. Pinasa niya ang type na report kay Mr. Brooks. Pagkatapos ay sinigawan siya nitong bumalik sa desk niya.
"GO BACK TO YOUR DESK!"
"Sige ho." Nalilito na si Jessie. Ayaw pang sabihin sa kanya ang meeting kanina. Tinapos niya ang kanyang trabaho that day at pagkatapos ay sinamahan niya si Josh sa Botanical Garden.
"Josh, may itatanong ako saiyo. What was the meeting about this morning?"
"I wasn't even there."
"Yup kase na-flat ang tire ko. Late na akong nakapasok. Mas late pa saiyo."
"Ah I see."
That afternoon ay marami silang napicturan. They have it develope same day too. They were so impress abou the pic. Tinawagan niya si Franchesca pero hindi pa rin ito sumasagot. Nagtataka siya dahil lagi naman nitong sinasagot ang tawag niya. Nag-leave siya ng message.
At that time ay pianghahandaan ang plano ni william para sa kanya. It will be a surprise of the year for Jessie. Tumulong din si Gary at nireserve ang buong ballroom para sa plano. Habang si William ay dumayo sa mga magulang ni Jessie kasama ang kanyang mga magulang. It was not easy talking with her father pero bumigay na din dahil nakita naman na seryoso talaga ito sa kanilang anak. So ready na ang lahat para bukas.
Inhatid ulit ni Josh si Jessie and again William is across the street watching them.
"Okay, nakakailan ka na.?" Reklamo ni William. This time he stayed fifteen minutes sa loob ng apartment ni Jessie at Nagseselos na siya talaga.
Nang nakita niyang lumabas si Josh ay bumaba siya ng sasakyan at hinila si Josh sa kanto away from Jessie's apartment para hindi siya makita nito.
"Last night you left after seven minutes. Now fifteen minutes?" Galit na tanong nito kay Josh.
"Yes me again."
"I just needed her help with something."
"Ito po." Ipinakita sa kanya ni Josh kung ano man iyon. Nagulat si William sa mga kuha ni Jessie. They were fantastic. Pinakiusapan niya rin si Josh tungkol sa plano at nag-promise naman itong hindi mag-iingay.
Pagod na pagod si Jessie at maaga itong natulog. Napuna iyon ni William at umuwi na ito para bukas ay gising na gising siya sa harap ni Jessie.
Nanaginip naman ng masama si Jessie tungkol sa demanda na isinampa ni william sa kanya. She really cried that night and afraid to go back to sleep. Kaya kinabukasan ay antok na antok ito. Pumasok siya ng building at hindi man lang niya napupuna na maraming reporter ang kumukuha ng pictures niya. Sa sobrang antok ay hindi rin niya nakikita si Franchesca. Sumesenyas si Franchesca kay William.
Biglang may nagpatugtog ng Katy Perry sa intercom "If We Ever Meet Again." Nagulat naman si Jessie dahil paborito niya si Katy Perry. Never siyang kadinig ng dance music sa intercom. Biglang may nagsayaw mag-isa sa harap niya, and then sunod sunod after. She was really surprise to see her office mates dancing. There were balloons everywhere. It was fusha and lilac color with hanging hearts. Then some few banners of William and her taken before from the Baltazar. Finally, she had an idea what's coming. William started to show up along with Franchesca and Gary dancing to the tune. She was laughing so bad and crying at the same time. She couldn't believe her eyes. William came to her side and the photographers went crazy with pictures. They handed a mic to William and there he started to kneel down infront of Jessie. A lot of the woman started to scream in happiness. Some are just touch by how he makes her feel right now. Some are jealous.
"Ms. Jessie Houston." He was kind a out of breath from dancing but he kept his composure. He promised that he will not make a mistake this time. So he continued on... "Since the day I laid my eyes on you, I did not know what to say and how to deal with you. I know we had lots of arguements, but when those things happened. I know it was you. I was I, and I'm still the same with you. I love you, the only different is that I can't live without you. I'm nothing without you. I'm so sorry for everything and I want you to know that both of our parents are here and they gave me yes. I'm only waiting for yours." William was panting infront of Jessie.
Jessie grab the mic and then said. "I'm just a woman in love with you..." More screams and Awes were heard.
"Ms. Jessie Williams, I would like to ask my question now... Can you play this pls." Suddenly a band started to play Bruno Mars and William sing some part of the song to Jessie.
"YES!" She shouted to William. William then grab the ring from Gary and slide it to Jessie's finger. He kiss Jessie for the first time and it was worth waiting for.
The whole half of the morning was a celebration at The Daily Magazines. The engagement was celebrated at the Wilson's Hotel. It made Jessie very happy. William was so proud of her Jessie. Everyone congratulated them. Jessie wore her black dress made by William's mother.
