Jeff lost his composure once he realized that Ann was gone. As soon as he got into the car, he told Ronald to drive.
But Ronald just sat there without moving. While Jeff was busy making calls, without looking, he asked Ronald, "Do you have a death wish or something? Didn't you hear me say drive to the airport?"
"But, boss...which airport? There are three within the area. Please tell me, which one?" Ronald was looking at Jeff in the mirror while praying inward at the same time.
'God, please!!!! Make a miracle! Let him choose the right one or I'll be dead for sure.' Ronald thought while waiting for Jeff's reply.
Ronald had never seen his boss act like this before. 'Jeff's the type of person who is always calm and collected, but for some reason, if it has anything to do with the lady boss, he loses his temper and makes wrong decisions.'
He continued praying. 'Please!!! God, just this once, make a miracle.'
When Jeff was about to tell him which airport to go, his phone started ringing.
'Saved by the bell. Whoever that person is, I'm grateful to them for saving my life.' Ronald thought.
"Hello Jeff, it's Ann. I just wanted to inform you that I'm on my way to Asia to take care of some business. Once I take care of this matter, I will then follow alright!" Ann told Jeff apologetically.
"Where are you right now?" Ann told him the name of the airport. "Stay there and don't you dare move until I get there, you hear me!" Jeff hung up the phone without waiting for Ann to reply.
He quickly got out of the back seat and ordered Ronald to get out of the car and get into the back seat.
Jeff took over the driver's seat and stepped on the gas, speeding up to 100 miles per hour.
Poor Ronald who had not had a chance to buckle up yet was bouncing and being thrown left and right in the back seat.
The whole time this was happening, Ronald was praying 'God!!! Please have mercy on me, mercy... mercy.' [AN: Just like the song.]
Within ten minutes, they arrived at their destination. Jeff got out of the car as if a demon was chasing him. He threw the keys to Ronald, who was still throwing up on the side of the vehicle. "Follow me once you settle the car issue."
Jeff only slowed down once he caught sight of Ann. He felt like he was alive again, and he could finally breathe. The view of his wife was like the air that he breathed.
The relief was visible on Jeff's face. His feelings were indescribable at that moment. One thing was for sure; he will follow Ann wherever she went, even if it was to the ends of the earth.
Ann saw Jeff, and she was speechless. She didn't know what to do. She knew she was in trouble now for some reason.
She was planning on calling him the night before, but she was afraid that he would not allow her to leave, so she decided to wait until the morning right before she was about to depart. Now it was too late.
The devil had arrived, with smoke coming out of his nose and ears.
"Let's go! You're coming with me. There are too many people out here, and they might recognize you." Jeff told Ann as soon as he arrived.
He grabbed her and guided her through a private entrance and into a waiting room. He then asked what her destination was. She told him, and he seemed satisfied with her response.
Jeff took out his phone and called Ronald to make the necessary arrangements.
While Jeff was on the phone with Ronald, Ann remembered her manager Lea was still trying to book them a flight.
"You don't need to worry about getting a seat; we already have one. I'm with Jeff right now. I'll wait for you here." She told Lea, with joy and happiness in her voice.
Soon, they boarded a private jet that belonged to Mega International Group, not knowing that there was a big surprise awaiting them when they arrived at their destination.
The Mega International Group's private jet was not a joke. It was luxurious. Lea couldn't believe that they were flying high-class, not the usual economy or first class.
It was High-class with a capital [H]. 'A couple of hours ago I was arguing with the counter lady, trying to fight for a seat. Thanks to this person I'm now flying in complete comfort, and I'm enjoying every minute of it.'
Lea couldn't help wondering how rich this Jeff was, to be able to afford all these benefits.
'Ann did the right thing by staying married to this person.' Lea thought to herself.
The private jet had a separate private cabin. Ann made herself comfortable in Jeff embrace and fell into a sweet slumber without a care in the world. She laid in comfort the whole trip to Asia.
A car was already waiting for them when they arrived — a black limousine, fully equipped with a wine bar and a variety of drinks and snacks. It could comfortably seat ten people.
Lea was in heaven as soon as they went inside. "Whoa! Is this an apartment or what? My whole bedroom can easily fit in this limo." She exaggerated a little for fun.
Ronald was eying her the whole time, not saying a word. He had been watching her ever since he saw her at the club the night before, but he couldn't find the courage to approach her.
While inside the car on the way to their destination, Ann was in deep thought. 'There was something wrong with this picture. How come Jeff is not asking more questions? Another thing is why is he in such a good mood? There's something he is not telling me. I need to find out.' Ann thought and prepared herself to ask a question.
"Jeff, can I ask you something?"
"What is it that you want to know?" Jeff replied without taking his eyes off of what he was doing.
"Where are we going?" She asked, trying to get his attention.
Jeff smiled and looked Ann straight in the eyes then said, "We're going home!"
The butler and maids were all lined up at the front door waiting for them. As soon as they stepped out of the car, they bowed and greeted them.
"Welcome home young master! Welcome home, young miss."
Lea was speechless. 'This is surreal; Jeff is super rich.' She couldn't hold her excitement anymore, so she nudged Jeff and whispered, "How rich are you, boss?"
Jeff didn't reply; he just kept holding his wife's hand and started introducing her to the house staff.
"Everyone listen. From now on she will be your boss. You will answer to her like it's me you're answering to, understand?"
"Yes! Young master!" Everyone replied in unison.
The whole time, Ann was just quiet and trying to comprehend what was going on.
She was not surprised at all at how rich her husband was. She had an idea already when they boarded the private jet.
What worried her the most was the way they were treating her. She was not ready for this kind of treatment; it was too overwhelming.
Ann thought to herself, 'You know what they say: when in Rome, do as the Romans.' [AN: something like that]
For Ann not to seem awkward, she unleashed her most prominent and sweetest smile at everyone and thanked them.
"Please take care of us!" Then she looked at Jeff and whispered to him, "I need to go meet with someone. Can you come with me?"
"Sure! When...Now?" Ann nodded, "Alright! Give me a couple of minutes to take care of some business; then I'll be ready. In the meantime, why don't you and Lea get familiar with the house? I'll call you when I finish." Jeff gave her a peck on her lips then turned and slowly made his way towards the study.
Lea was like a little child who found herself at 'Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.' She couldn't get enough of it.
The butler showed them to their rooms. Lea was downstairs while Ann, of course, was upstairs.
The butler bade them goodbye after seeing them to their rooms.
They took their time familiarizing themselves with the place, then rested for a little while, waiting for Jeff to finish his business. Finally, it was time to go.
