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
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,
I smiled. “It boosts up my self-confidence,
“Ladies here are elites and brat. Don’t be

Aware of my presence? “What do you
“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,
“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
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
“Happy celebration, Mrs. Vallo,” Ben said.
“Thank you. And who is this beautiful
“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.
“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
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
I giggled. I am becoming wild if I am
“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
“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
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 sexy, 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
“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 assure 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
“Jaja, you’re getting beautiful every time I
“Thank you, Dad. You’re getting younger
every time I see you too, along with Auntie
“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
“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-
