ACTING LIKE GINNY
JAJA’s Point Of View
“You are really my granddaughter!”
exclaimed by Mrs. Colleen.
All of us in the room look at her, shocked
“Mum, yes she look like Jane and she also
don’t eat chicken but we need to make
sure that she is really Jane’s daughter,” said
by the man who was surprised when I
“She is my granddaughter, I know it, I can
feel it,” Mrs. Colleen said, determined. “By
the way, this is Attorney Gux and this is my
youngest son, Jojo.”
We shake hands.
I look at Mrs. Colleen. “But Mrs. Colleen, you
have no daughter. How can I be your
Mrs. Colleen smiled and look at Jojo who
was quiet. She took her wallet and took a
picture in it. She showed it to me. It was
Mum’s picture, the younger Mum.
“Do you know who’s on the picture?”
I nod as I stare at Mum. “It’s Mum.”
I haven’t saved any family photo to keep.
Not even a single one. I can only see them
through my memory.
“We have kept the truth for almost a
century. I have one daughter, she’s Jane. I
denied her because she chose her lover
than her profession. We treated her a black
sheep of the family that’s why we denied
her. She’s the princess of family but she
chose her poor lover than the better life. I
know it’s lame but to protect Colleen’s
rising image before, we have done it. After
that, we haven’t received any informations
about her since then. Until you show up.”
I sighed. Ben hold my hand to ease the
sadness I feel. They denied Mum because
she chose my poor Dad. But what else can I
do? They are only human, they make
“Where’s Jane? Where’s your Mum? I want
to meet your family and ask for
forgiveness,” Mrs. Colleen said.
I smiled, sadly. “They’re gone.”
Silence filled the whole room. Surprise is
visible on their face.
“How?” Sadness. Pain. Guilt. I can sense
those in her voice.
“We met an accident. I’m the only one who
“Oh my God! My Jane! My Jane is gone?!”
Mrs. Colleen almost fainted out. She’s
crying in pain inside her. I know the
feeling, I’ve been there. The pain inside
almost killed me too but I still survived.
Jojo give his Mum a water and sooth her. I
look up to restrain my tears.
“Move on with your Grandmother, sweetie.
You both need each other.”
We’ve waited for Mrs. Colleen to calm
down after the painful revelation about her
“We need to undergo to the DNA test to
make sure that you are really Jane’s
daughter. Don’t be offended but this is the
only way to confirm everything,” Jojo said.
Mrs. Colleen couldn’t talk, she’s still
I nod. “Okay. I’m willing to do it.”
BEN THROW his self on the bed. He looks
“Are you okay, heart?” I sit beside him and
massaged his back. I noticed that he’s not
paying attention to what I am saying a
“Just a bit tired, sweetie,” he answered.
“You should get a rest, heart. I’ll prepare
Ben didn’t answered. I look at him, his eyes
were closed. He fell asleep that easily. He
must be really tired.
I come out the room and went to the
kitchen. I prepared the ingredients that I
After the short conversation on the
restaurant with Mrs. Colleen and Jojo, we
went straight to the hospital to do the DNA
test. The doctor who did the test said the
result will be receive by us after 3-5 days.
After we parted, Mrs. Colleen gave their
address and her calling number. We
haven’t confirmed the test yet but she’s
treating me as her real granddaughter.
“You leaved me in the room, sweetie,” Ben
said. He hug me from behind, he placed his
chin on my shoulder.
“You’re asleep, heart.” I covered the pot
and turned to face Ben. I wrap my arm
behind his nape.
“Of course not. I just close my eyes but I
I shrugged. “Don’t mind it. I cooked your
favorite food, the spicy beef.”
“My favorite doesn’t need to be cook. God
already cooked it for me to eat easily.”
I giggled and pinch his hip. “Naughty.”
“You know what, I just realized that I
haven’t taken back my rules.”
I laughed. “Yes. You had broken your own
He kissed me on my lips. “Well, I would
love to be a rule breaker if it was for you.
Even if it is my own strict rule.”
“Are you now going to remove the rules,
He laughed. “Of course. You are not my
slave anymore. I am now your slave of
He placed his face between my neck and
shoulder. “Hmmm. Where did you put the
medicine? My head is aching severely.”
“Wait. I’ll go get it.” I quickly get the
medicine kit and return to the kitchen just
to be surprised. Ben’s head is on the table.
“Hey, heart, what’s happening to you?”
“I’m feeling sick, sweetie. My head is really
“I’m going to take you on the hospital.”
“No,” he said as he shake his head. “I’ll be
alright. Just a medicine and kiss from you is
I smiled. “Are you really in pain?”
He laugh and pull me to sit on his lap. He
kissed me torridly but I stop. He’s biting
my lips just like he bite it on our first night.
“WHAT HAPPENED to you?” I asked when I
saw Ben’s secretary, crying.
“Jaja, Sir Benjamin is acting strange lately. I
don’t know what’s happening to him.”
“What do you mean?” I stopped working
on their company after the party and I am
busy having a bonding with Mrs. Colleen as
we wait for the result. It’s been three days
since we did the DNA test. I came here in
the JewelCore company because Ben’s
secretary called me.
“Sir Benjamin became worse, Jaja. Before,
he is just yelling at me but now he’s
changed. He even did this to me.” She
showed me the mark on her neck, she was
Shocked. “Oh my God! I’m sorry!”
“I-it’s okay. I know Sir Benjamin is up to
something and he needs help. I will let this
pass because I know Sir Benjamin very
“Did he hurt someone else in this
“None. And I hope I would be the last. I
know Sir Benjamin have a problem.”
“Is he inside?”
“Jaja, be careful.”
I smiled and nod. I entered the office.
Surprised. Ben looks miserable.
“Heart, what’s happening to you? Are you
okay?” I asked as I fix his hair and his suit.
“What are you doing here, sweetie?” His
face had lighten up when he saw me.
“I’m visiting you. What happened to you?
You hurt your secretary.”
“I haven’t controlled my anger. She forgot
to inform me that I have a meeting with
one of the great client.”
I sighed. “People do make mistakes, heart.”
“BUT THAT CLIENT IS VERY IMPORTANT!”
I step back as he shout at me. This is the
first time he shout at me. I gulped. He was
just calm a while ago and then he became a
He was stunned as he look at me. “Oh, God.
I’m sorry, sweetie. I didn’t mean it. I’m
“You…you’re acting like Ginny, Ben.”
