CHAPTER Iď1, 2, 3. Okay. Nice Shot. Good Job Krissy. For sure, patok na naman ang June issue ng Fashionista.Ē
Krissy: Hehe. Thanks po.
ďOkay, pack-up na.Ē
Finally, the photo shoot is over. I can now have a rest. Iíve been doing this thing for about two years and Iím not happy about it. By the way, Iím Kristaline Angelica Valdez and Iím 17 years old. You must be wondering why I have a photo shoot. Well, Iím a model and Iíve been in the modeling world for 2 years. Krissyís Mom: Iha, is your photo shootís done?
Krissy: Yes ma
Krissyís Mom: Tomorrow, we will have a meeting with the owner of Stylistic Magazine coz they want you to be their cover girl on their magís July issue.
Krissy: Mom, but I just finished doing one for your magazineís next issue.
Yeah, you heard it right. My mom is the owner of one of the Philippines leading magazine, the Fashionista. Well, si mom talaga ang may gusto na pumasok ako sa modeling world. Ayoko talaga. Why? because I donít wanna be famous. I almost have everything. My mom is an owner of a fashion mag while my dad has a business in the US. I always get what I want. I could even live this life without working. My mom forced me to and I couldnít turn it down.Krissyís Mom: But Krissy, nakapag-set na ako ng meeting and we canít cancel it.
Krissy: Mom, you know naman that I really donít like this field.
Krissyís Mom: I know. Thatís why I forced you. Sayang ang ganda mo anak kung di mo rin papakinabangan. You have what it takes to be one of the top models and opportunities are coming to you, why donít you just grab it?
Krissy: Okay mom. Iíll do this for you.
Krissyís Mom: Good girl. Thatís why di ako nagsisisi na ikaw ang naging anak ko.
I just love my mom so much that even though I donít like it, I still continue doing it. well, you canít blame me. Siya lang mag-isa ang nagpalaki sa akin. My parents separated when I was 13 years old but I still have communication with my dad. And at times, nagpapadala siya ng something for me. Iím not mad at my dad. I understand the both of them when they decided to separate. Minsan nga, nagpupunta ako sa US just to visit my dad. May family na siya dun but theyíre nice to me naman. I donít have any problem with them.Krissyís Mom: Krissy, daan muna tayo ng bookstore. Letís see kung okay yung sales ng latest issue natin. Yung cover si Wesley Perez.
Wesley Perez. How I hate that guy. Why? Ang yabang ng lalaking yan. Akala mo siya na ang pinakagwapong tao sa mundo. I still remember what happened nung may photo shoot siya sa studio namin kasi nga siya yung cover nung mag namin for May.Flashback (2 months ago)
I went to my momís office coz we have something to talk about. Well, ako kasi ang magiging cover girl ng June issue ng magazine niya. Kahit ayoko, kailangan kong gawin for the sake of my mom.
I was walking towards my momís office when suddenly.
Wes: Anu ba? Tumingin ka nga sa dinadaanan mo.
Krissy: Sorry ha. I didnít mean to.
Wes: Wag mong sabihin na anak ka nag may-ari, I really donít care
Krissy: Hey. Wala naman akong sinasabi ah. Ang yabang mo, akala mo kung sino ka.
Wes: If I know, crush mo lang ako.
Ang kapal talaga ng mukha ng lalaking ito. Pinapainit nya ang dugo ko.
Krissy: Aba. Ang kapal mo din noh. Pasalamat ka nga kinuha ka ng mom ko para maging cover ng mag namin. Wala na kasing maisip kaya no choice, kinuha ka.
Then I walked out. I really donít like him. I thought heís nice. But I was wrong. He is super duper masungit, suplado at mayabang.
Dun na nag-start yung matindi kong inis para sa Wesley Perez na yun. My mom knew it but when i told her about it, she just laughed. Arg. Nakakainis talaga.Krissy: Mom, bakit pa? You can know it naman without going here and checking it personally. Tsaka, andaming makakakita sa akin dito.
Krissyís Mom: ayaw mo nun? It means, youíre famous.
Krissy: Mom, never in my life I dreamt of becoming famous. Okay na ako sa pagiging anak ng isang may-ari ng magazine. Being an ordinary student is much better.
Oo, mas maganda talaga kung ordinaryong student na lang ako. When I was in High School, they used to call me as Ms. Popular. I was in my 4th year when I started doing this thing. At dun nagsimula yung pagiging popular ko sa school. I used to join contests at school at syempre, panalo ako. And now na college na ako sa pasukan, I expect na ganun pa din but as much as possible, Iíll act as a normal teenager and as an ordinary student. Krissyís Mom: Fine. Pero nasa taas ka na. Gusto mo pa bang bumaba? Anak, you have lots of fans, suki ka ng mga magazine. Kapag ikaw ang cover, laging maganda ang sales. Iha, pinapaganda mo ang takbo ng company ko. You must be proud of yourself.
Proud? Why would I? Kasi maganda ang takbo ng company coz of me. I know, Iím the next president of her company. Kaya nga pati course ko siya rin ang pumili. Something related to fashion and design. Though I really want to be a Chef someday. Funny as it may seem but I really love cooking. I have passion for it. Krissy: Okay. Iím proud of myself, really proud. (in a sarcastic way)
Ayun, my mom checked everything. From the magazines on the shelf hanggang sa stocks nila and she was really happy about the result kasi out of stocks. Yeah, Wes is really famous. Everyoneís been looking up to him as the most gorgeous male model except me. I admit he has the looks and the body but attitude, NUH!!!Krissyís Mom: Krissy, iha, I think I know that guy. Look, the one who is wearing a blue shirt and Capri pants (while pointing).
Krissy: Ah yeah, you really know him coz I know him too.
Bakit siya nandito? At papalapit pa sa amin. ĒHi Tita.Ē
