Dex groaned at the sight of his cousin and his friend kissing each other after exchanging I love yous. “I’ll die of cheesiness here,”
Jennafei put on a smile before the camera held by the photographer she came in with. After taking the picture, she asked to be excused from the well-known socialites she was talking with to mingle with another group of elite people.
During that time, she was at the second engagement party from two of both from old rich families, Blue Madrigal and Kimberly Romero. The wedding is all set and planned but for formality sake and to erase the scandal from the first engagement party, they held another one at the Madrigal residence.
(T/N: I have the book but I did not read the book yet as I have too many books and dramas on my plate yet to read and watch, so I don’t have a clue what that scandal was all about.)
Jennafei was chosen to attend the gathering. She first thought of declining but she knew that she didn’t have the right to decline a job due to personal reason. It’s because there was a high chance that Dex will be present because he was Kimberly’s cousin. She did not want to see him. She did not see him n person again since he graduated from college and she didn’t plan on seeing him again. She declined the assignment given by Mr. Agustin and request from Pete to try convincing the guy to guest in their show.
In their private conversation, Pete was puzzled when she pleaded him not to insist the assignment to her. She confessed that he made a big offense towards her in the past and she didn’t want to have anything to do with him. The producer understood and promised to keep the information he learned from her.
But she was there and she knew that anytime, she would see him. Before she got there, she prepared herself on what to don n case she saw him. She going to ignore and won’t even take a picture of him. She will just consider him as a complete stranger.
In few moments, the engagement party had started. She finished taking a brief interview from the celebrants who appeared happy with each other. She found out that they got back together in Capetown, South Africa. She noticed that Blue and Kimberly were so in love with each other. She can’t help thinking when will Red settle down like his older brother.
(T/N: Red and Blue are brothers)
“Allan, have you seen Red Madrigal? I haven’t seen him yet,” Jenna asked her photographer.
“Nope. I think he hasn’t arrived yet.”
There was news that he will stop his modeling career to will focus on the one of the company of the Madrigal Group. She wants to get an update from Red. The last time they saw each other was a month ao during a fashion show,
“Hey, beautiful. Will you not take an interview from me?”
She looked around and slowly smiled. “Red Madrigal, the international playboy,” she teased.
He moved near and hissed hem on her cheek. “Hey, that’s not true.”
Then he shook hands with Allan.
“Sure,” Red agreed and but his arm on around her shoulder. Allan took them a shot. Afterwards, Allan went away to take some drinks.
“How is the famous?”
“You are the famous one. Your controversies and lined up. And I’m pissed with you for not taking your first interview with us about your latest controversy.”
“Well, first come, first served.”
“So, what’s up now? Hat are you doing now before you enter the corporate world?”
Red’s face soured. Obviously, he did not really like entering the business world. He smiled right after when his eyes landed on her red pumps.
“Right now, I’m searchng for my Cinderella,” he meaningfully said.
She raised her brow. “Cinderella?” His eyes seemed to glow.
“Hey, what’s up?”
Both of them looked at the speaker.
“Hey, Jude!” Red joyfully greeted. He hugged the guy with the same height. “It’s good that you came with your parents.”
“I was not suppose to come ‘cause I know no one here my parents said that your father and brother wanted to meet me.”
“Hi, Jenna. It’s good to see you again.” Jude smilingly said.
“Jude?” Jenna can’t believe it’s him after confirming her guess who he was.
Jude nodded and kissed her on the cheek. What she knew was he did not finish studying at the university because he migrated to the States with his family.
“Did you just arrive from the States?
“Yeah. Just yesterday.”
“Jude here is a multimillionaire now,” Red said while teasing.
“Shut up, man.”
“It’s true. Their business is in the States. He became a millionaire in his own effort. In fact, he’s a future client of Blue in Linkage Telecom.”
“Wow. Congratulations, Jude,” Jennafei gladly said.
“Thanks. Congratulations to you, too. I heard that you’re already a well-known TV personality and journalist.”
“Shit!” gasped Red. He was suddenly at behind Jude like he was hiding. “What is that crazy girl doing here? Who the hell invited her?”
She followed where Red was looking at. She found a familiar beautiful woman walking by herself in the crowd. She was looking around like she was looking for someone.
“Hazel Legaspi?” She silently uttered. The woman was a model. “Is she one of your girls?” she teased.
“Hell, no. She’s Dex’s.”
Hearing the name, her smile was erased. Jenafei noticed that Jude was looking at her so she forced the smile back. She was about to ask Red why she was hiding from someone he’s not associated with in the first place when the guy spoke again.
“I have to go now. I will leave both of behind. Enjoy the party.” Red went away right after.
She shook her head. “Playboys…”
“Dex. Weren’t you together? He kicked me out of the school because of you. You must be really special to him.”
Jennafei was astounded. “What? He kic…kicked to out?” So ergo, it was not true that he dropped out of school because their family migrated to the States.
“B-because of me? How did–?
“Well, it’s an old issue. I don’t want to recall. My life turned into better when I was kicked out of school. So I don’t want to recall anymore.
She stared at Jude.
Finally done! Yey! The keyboard of my laptop is busted, asdgim letters are sometimes working, most of the times are not. I don’t really feel like buying a new one or just a usb keyboard since I almost never use computers anyway. But typing sentences on a laptop with inarticulate message after can be so frustrating. I finished the last chapter by typing it all on my small cellphone. Yay!
One part release a day. Hoping I get to edit each one of them before the release. My apologies for the delay of almost a year. Yikes. I hope you still get to enjoy the story despite it all. And I just realized I wasn’t able to post the last part of chapter 14. I will post it and the start of chapter 15 on the same day.
“I talked to Dex Peralta,” Pete discussed to Jennafei and Donald. They were in the set and the taping of the episode will start at any time.
One more chapter to go, I tried to finish it all in one go but I just can’t sit in front of the computer more than 2 hours. I’m just too slow. (╥_╥) Give me few more time and I will eventually finish it, won’t I? p(´⌒｀｡q)
Happy weekend everyone!
I bet you’re all tired of me apologizing, so I won’t even try, I’ll just make it up next month.
I will be having a long break this February and hopefully I would be able to finish working on the last 2 chapters of 20 total chapters. Right after I finish the last sentence then I might post one part each day, it will most likely be ending before the end of Feb. Fingers crossed.
Thank you for the new subscribers who still subscribed knowing that the site is on hiatus and those who stayed and still waiting. Thank you for the kind understanding. (Of how lazy I am to finish very few chapters left and take several months even) See you then!
Just finished translating the next chapter but ending the post this way feels wrong, specially when i know i will be going through numerous overtime this month in order to achieve a goal. So in any case I leave it this way, it will feel like a cliffy and i will feel more guilty than i already am for not posting for so long.
So let me inform you guys that I decided to finish the book first altogether, just 6 chapters left before the ending, 5 left technically before I will release them daily. Give me 2 to 3 months. I promise it wont reach until next year.
Im sorry for announcing and deciding this selfishly. I hope you guys wont be upset or mind it too much. Stay healthy, be blessed and be a blessing to others.
Without further ado.
No more apologies. This is the long due release. The weekly update will be back, for now. Atleast until further notice. 😛 I’m sure there are loads of mistakes because I was too lazy to edit, please feel free to point them out in the comment section have you had any time. ^_^
Sorry for not updating for a long time my dear readers. I feel that I should give you some update that I have not abandoned the blog yet. Aside from being busy with work and life, I just cant find time and motivation to sit in a part of my room to translate. I think it’s more than a month now since I last used my laptop.
Rest assured that I will still continue this novel, just not at this period of time. Not when I spend almost all of my days off going to work anyway (while enjoying it, thanks God), and the rest of it outside of socializing , I spend snoring off.
Enough of me. I promise that the next chapter will be out by next month. Most probably by the second week. Though that seems so far away. Thank you for all the readers who are still patiently waiting. See you all next month and always take care. May overwhelming joy and peace be with you all.
