When the elevator's door opened, I immediately asked the receptionist kung nasaan ang canteen. Ayokong magsayang ng oras dahil baka malate pa ako mamaya at masungitan na naman ng magaling kong boss.

I reached the canteen in no time and saw Rayne seated at a two seater table while waving at me.

Lumapit ako sa kaniya at sabay kaming umorder ng lunch namin.

While eating my lunch, I called my kids.

"Hello, mommy!" I heard Van's voice.

"Hi, my prince. Kumusta kayo? I didn't have the chance to talk to you earlier. Did you eat lunch na?"

"Yes po, mommy. I was taking a bath earlier when you called po."

"Where's you sister, Van?"

"She's still eating, mommy. You know her, she's so matakaw!"

We both laughed and I heard Leigh's annoyed voice.

"Ok, ok. If mommy can go home early, we will talk about our days. Mommy needs to finish her food agad, my prince eh. Her boss might get angry if she's late." He said ok and I love you. I also heard my princess's I love you and the line went dead.

"I can saw the glint of happiness in your eyes." Puna ni Rayne nang maibaba ko ang tawag.

"I love my children so much." I just said and continued eating.

Pinakita ko rin kay Rayne ang pictures ng mga anak ko ay hayun, hindi na tinigilan ang pagtitig nito. She said that they're so pretty and handsome, tama raw siya. She said that if ever we could have our leave, sasama siya sa akin sa probinsya to meet my children.

Kaya hanggang sa pagsakay namin ulit ng elevator para bumalik sa mga trabaho namin ay bukambibig niya pa rin ang mga ito.

"Hindi ko mapigilan ang sarili ko, Avi. they are sooo cute talaga! I want to pinch their cheeks kapag nameet ko sila in person. Hindi kaya sila mawirduhan sa akin? Pero di bale na! Just introduce me agad para kapag kinurot ko na mga cheeks nila sa panggigigil hindi sila ganon matakot kasi I'm their mommy's best friend naman."

Then we reached her floor kaya I waved my hand and the door closed.

-

I reached the 30th floor kaya dumiretso na ako sa aking upuan. It's still 5 minutes early before the meeting kaya nagfreshen up muna ako sa comfort room located at this floor.

Actually, this whole floor is the CEO's office. Kaya hindi rin ako ganon nagwoworry iwanan ang cellphone ko on my desk kasi from every corner of the floor, maririnig mo kung tutunog ang elevator which indicated that there is a visitor.

Bumalik na ulit ako sa desk ko at saktong tumunog nga ang elevator. I told you. Sa sobrang tahimik pa naman ng floor na 'to, baka pati lipad ng ipis, yun ay kung meron man, maririnig mo.

"Good afternoon, sir." I politely stood up and bowed my head a little to show some respect.

"Good afternoon, too." He replied.

"I'll just notify my boss that you're already here so you can go inside." I pressed the intercom and said, "Boss, nandito na po ang kameeting nyo."

"Let him in." His cold voice made me chill. Siguro, kailangan ko nang masanay sa boses niyang 'yon.

I smiled at the visitor and walked with him until we reached the door. I knocked thrice and opened the door for him, he said thanks.

Bago ko maisara ang pinto ay nakita ko pa ang blangkong tingin ng boss ko.
