《Billionaire Insatiable Desires》[Billionaire Insatiable Desires] - The Hasty Decision
I saw Edward approaching where I stood, pulling my arm, and taking me to our table.
”Hey Marco Fernando, what are you doing? People are looking at you. Behave my friend okay? ”
I only nodded and started to pour a shot of tequila, with salt and sliced lemon, and three slices of beef steak. Then, I ate the kinilaw and gulped a bowl of soup. I was satisfied and contented that I asked Edward to order more.
”What? Slowly, Marco, Im not rich enough to order for more… ”
”Hey…hey Edward my best friend…next week, Im rich…a rich man!! We will paint the town red!! Well go shopping, swimming, drinking…until the end of the world!!!…and…and..well buy everything…as in anything!!! I shouted.
”Hey, Marco!! Stop it…stop!! Whats your problem, my friend? ” Edward angrily asked. ”What happened to you? Are you crazy? You don have money in your pocket… Okay, lets go! ”
” Joel, bill please…how much? ”
”One thousand and five hundred pesos sir, ” Joel answered.
”Here, two thousand pesos, keep the change, ” Edward said.
”Thank you, sir! ”
We left the disco house and headed to Edwards boarding house. I sprang my body on a sofa to sleep when we arrived. Edward brought me to the bathroom, pulled my clothes off, and opened the shower. The cold water began to absorb my drenched flesh and soul, felt the freshness of the morning regaining the normality of my being. I dried myself on the sofa without toweling the excess water on my body.
Edward appeared in my view coming from the kitchen, holding a bowl of hot water, a hand towel, and a brief. ”Marco, here, put on your brief…who are you, Pinoy Tarzan? ”
I silently immersed the hand towel in a bowl, squeezed it, and rubbed it all over my body; starting from my face down to my toes. I felt relieved. Edward gave me food to eat while he seated himself in front of me.
”Are you alright now? Whats your problem? Tell me. If you
e acting like this, I knew you have. What is it? Tell me…so that I could give you…solutions. Come on tell me? ”
”You know what? Yesterday morning, Governor Gustilo met me at the Sugarlandia Hotel, offered a bag of money to marry his daughter Danielle…and I can decide who, what, or why! With my battered situation right now…I think…I have to accept the money…but…. ”
”You didn accept the money? Why? ” Edward bolted from his seat and held me on both shoulders. ”Marco, thats a blessing from heaven! I mean, thats your opportunity…grab it, Marco Fernando! Oh…friend…my best friend…!!! ” Edward exclaimed. ”So, when will that be? Next week? ”
I only nodded looking at him expressionless. With that huge sum of money, I could help my friend and family, but how? That sum of money too was the payment of my freedom, payment of my soul, and marriage to Danielle Gustilo. Marrying her means comfortable life? Wheres she right now?
The next day, its raining outside, alone in my room which Edward provided for me. He asked me to transfer to his boarding house, to save from the house rent, food, and daily consumables. And, a temporary shelter for me, while I was waiting for my next meeting with the Governor. That day, Edwards on duty. The more I stayed inside the boarding house, the more I wanted to release my energy. Without much fussed, I took off all my clothes, carried the dumbbell, and began the basic way of exercising muscles. The rigorous exertion took off those energies that lived within me for the past two days. Still, the thoughts of Danielle and Ayah Isabel still lingered.
I reminisced the time with Danielle; that lovely and silky skin, which made her, captured my insanity. Shes beautiful, modesty aside, the kind with a strong disposition. The world will stop when her loveliness exudes no boundaries, a woman with the power to capture a mans imagination into the world of ecstasy. How I missed that first night with her!
Switching my mind to Ayah Isabel gave me another dimension of my soul. She was inside of me, I felt it. Never had I felt so beautiful when I imagined her. The charisma in her being bewitched my whole being. A kindhearted Ayah Isabel, meek, and had the power to intertwine our souls together. A majestic beauty folded unto my wings slowly proffered unto my heart and gradually exploded onto my imagination. She had the magic
