Blue Love Story – Episode 26
Episode 26 : SETTLE DOWN?!
JAJA’s Point Of View
I hold Ben’s hand as I emerged from the car. He let me wrap my hand on his arm and lead the way.
“Good evening, Sir and Ma’am. Can I see your invitations?”
Ben showed the invitation to the event checker. After confirming the name, they let us in.
The party is held in the mansion. The owner of the Client 560 is really rich. I’ve seen the beautiful garden that lighten up the beauty because of the lights around it. The lot size of the compound is huge. The mansion itself is very wonderful, I can say it was meticulously designed and made.
As we entered the mansion, the chandelier hangs in the ceiling had caught my attention. It was the very expensive chandelier. Next is the paintings attached on the wall, all of them are made by the great artist. The things here in the mansion are antiques yet beautiful.
People on the party are busy chitchatting. It was indeed an elite evening party. The gentlemen are wearing formally attire and the ladies are wearing luxury evening gowns and jewelries. I noticed that some of the jewelries I see that was worn by some ladies are my designs.
I became anxious when some of the ladies are looking at me, intently.
“Those ladies that wears your designs are the ladies of the owner’s family. Some of them are daughter-in-law, daughter, niece and others. They love your designs, sweetie.”
I smiled. “It boosts up my self-confidence , heart.”
“Ladies here are elites and brat. Don’t be drown of their stare, let them be aware of your presence.”
Aware of my presence? “What do you mean?”
“You are being drooled over by men. Let them be aware that their beauty could not equal yours, sweetie.”
“You’re making me bigheaded, heart.”
“What? I am only stating the truth, sweetie.”
“Hi, Mister Benjamin! I’m Quetch. I’ve seen your jewelry designs from those beautiful ladies. They are very beautiful!”
Ben smiled. “Well, thanks for this lady beside me. She’s the one who designed them all. Quetch, this is Jaja, my girlfriend.”
Quetch look at me and grabbed my hand. “Nice to meet you, Jaja. I am looking forward to work with your company.”
“Thank you, Quetch. Here’s my calling card if you are interested.” Ben handed Quetch a card.
After Quetch leaved, another one approached us again.
“Benjamin, my darling! I am very happy to see you here.” The old lady kissed Ben on the cheek.
“Happy celebration, Mrs. Vallo,” Ben said. “Thank you. And who is this beautiful lady?”
“Mrs. Vallo, this is my girlfriend Jaja. The one who designed the jewelries.” I smiled. “Hello, Mrs. Vallo,” I greet.
“Hello, dear. Nice to meet a talented lady. And oh! You’re couples? Benjamin, marry her now! Don’t let her go.”
I laughed. Ben and Mrs. Vallo looked at me. “I’m sorry.”
“It’s okay, dear, I like to hear your laugh. Have you eaten yet?”
“Not yet, Mrs. Vallo. We’ll just eat later.”
“Oh, okay. Enjoy the party, alright? I need to entertain the other visitors. Is it okay to leave you here?”
“Of course, Mrs. Vallo. Have a great night.”
“Thank you for having me here, Mrs. Vallo. And congratulations for the celebration,” I said.
Mrs. Vallo leaved us two. Ben lead me on the table of two and pulled me a chair.
“So, you want to eat now, sweetie?” Ben asked as I sit on the chair.
I shook my head. “No, heart. I’m still full. Can I drink some wine?”
“Sure. Just don’t get yourself drunk. You know what’s happening to you if you get drunk.”
I giggled. I am becoming wild if I am drunk.
“Hi, Mister Benjamin!”
We both look up at the lady in front of us. She’s smiling at Ben, in a flirty way.
“Do I know you?” Ben asked.
“We’ve met before, don’t you remember?”
Ben stared at the lady and shook his head. “I don’t. Are you one of my clients?”
“No. It was my father.”
“Well, pardon me if I don’t know you. I only know my clients.”
The lady leaved without saying anything.
“That’s rude, heart,” I said but I am smiling because of the lady’s failure to flirt with Ben.
“Rude, you may say, but she’s also rude. She can see that I am with you yet she still approach me in a flirty way. What’s the matter with that lady?” I laughed. That’s my Benjamin.
“WHY DOES a beautiful lady is alone here?”
I look up to the one who speak. He sit on the chair in front of me. I know this man. He’s Mister 13, the one that Ben had been competed back on the auction. He’s smiling, flirty smile just like the lady awhile ago.
Ben leaved me here for a moment. He said he just need to talk to a client that he need to talk to.
“Hi! I’m Frederick. You remember me?”
I nod. “You’re Mister 13.”
“Yeah. You know I like you way back on the auction. You’re beautiful and s3xy, that’s why I competed with BenBen. Unfortunately, he had won you.” I didn’t replied. I don’t like the way he look at me and talk to me.
“What do you want?” I asked in an impatient way.
“Woah! Don’t act like BenBen, you’re too beautiful and young to be stress. BenBen, he’s my brother. You know, BenBen have a mental disorder, don’t you notice it? He’s dangerous for you. Just come with me and I will a*ssure you your safety.
I smirked. “Ben is way better than you, Frederick. You’re his brother? I think you are Ginny’s brother, both of you have a mental disorder. You can’t brainwash me. You are more dangerous for me.”
Frederick laughed. “I like you. I really like you. You’re a brave lady.”
“Thank you but I don’t like you.”
Frederick was about to slap me when we heard someone cleared a throat.
“A real man never slap a woman because he was rejected. Now, leave if you don’t want to be on the circle of shame.
I smiled when I saw Dad. He’s with his new wife that is smiling at me.
“Hi, Jaja! I’m sorry for what my son have said and done to you. He’s really like that. Boastful,” Felt apologized. She’s the mother of Mister 13. “It’s okay, Auntie Fely.”
Sometimes, I wonder why does the attitude of the children is different with their parents?
“Jaja, you’re getting beautiful every time I see you.”
“Thank you, Dad. You’re getting younger every time I see you too, along with Auntie Fely.”
“Oh come on, Jaja. Don’t lie to me, I might believe it,” Auntie Fely said.
“That necklace suits you well, darling. I knew it, Ben is serious about you. That necklace is very important for our family tradition.” “Family tradition?”
“Yes. The necklace was named Lufu, an old english word for love. It symbolizes great affection and sincerity to settle down. Ben is really ready to settle down. I am happy to say that I like you as my daughter-in-law.” Settle down?!
