For the early part of my internship, I was assigned to work as a compliance analyst that placed me in the finance department. There I met a lot of different people, most of whice were from the accounting department.
The setup of the company is that it was enclosed in a compound and the different offices and departments were lumped together in one floor. This might not be so accurate since this happened sometime in 2012. The point is, since the departments were lumped together, I was exposed to the different employees from different departments.
Even though I was only an intern, the company I worked for was big enough to give me my own table that was next to the other employees. Because the departments were lumped together, I got to meet employees from other departments, and one employee really got my attention.
She was an accountant who was in her mid 30’s. At the time, I was only 19, so the age gap was quite big.
What really caught my attention was how long her legs were. It was as if they never ended. She stands about 5’5″, so she’s a bit total compared to the average Filipina.
My first impression of her was that she was snobbish and looked mataray. She kept a tight circle and would usually have lunch at the cafeteria with her two close friends.
At first, still learning the ropes, I focused on what was assigned to me since the internship was graded and the company is one of those multinational companies aspired for by a lot of students.
As days passed, I became close to one of her friends who would always tease me. They treated me as that you younger brother you always teased and that brought me closer to them. During one of our workdays, they invited me to have dinner and watch a movie with them.
At the time, I had a girlfriend so I had to make up some excuse since I was going out with 3 girls. Cut the story short, it was at this time that I really got to know her.
Dinner was uneventful but at the movies, for some reason, I ended up sitting next to her. I forgot what movie this was but all I could remember was that we grew comfortable and I discovered that she had a long time boyfriend who was based out of town and would only get to go home once in a while. Fast forward, I got her number and started texting her.
At first she wasn’t as responsive but through time, I was able to breakdown her walls and really got to know her.
I remember this one time, Valentines was approching and considering that her boyfriend was out of town and will not be able to come home, she felt lonely and invited me to her place.
Since she was staying somewhere in Makati while I was staying in Paranaque, I drove to her place not knowing what to expe…
