I give you a scenario; you are a 35 year old woman who is a hard-charging, beautiful PR executive who seems to have it all. You are currently running a PR company own by a real estate tycoon, an old friend Ray. You and Ray went to college together. In another word, you have known Ray for quite a long time. Ray like you very much, much more than a friend but you never give him a chance even though you know and aware that he had feelings for you.

One day, Ray offered you a vacation, a trip to let say somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico, Veracruz perhaps. Ray told you that you need a rest because you look exhausted and you deserve the much need rest. He said he has no hidden agenda. There you go a first class ticket to a resort in Mexico. How cool is that. It’s just; take it or leave it.

There’s going to be a party to celebrate Ray’s birthday and also the opening ceremony for his new sub company in a few days. Yang and Damian is supposed to be in charge of the event. Yang on the planning side and Damian will be on the technical inspections side. Yang works for Ray while Yang works for your PR Company. The person who is supposed to be in charge of the interior design is Laura, your best friend whom you might want to call your sister.

Laura is someone that is very dear to your heart. She was the one who told you not to marry Jack, your ex-fiancé for some reasons that she just can’t tell you, but in the end your decision on pulling out from the wedding prove to be a correct decision because you found out that Jack is an asshole. Laura, a single mother in her 30’s is a dedicated young woman. She’s strong, faithful and a very good friend.

You went for lunch with a one of your most trusted employee, Yang who is also your personal secretary, well, used to be until you promoted her to operations manager that usually deals with your clients and also making sure all of your events running smoothly. Yang actually pointed out that you and Ray look good together. So you were thinking that;

I’m 35 and I’m not getting any younger. If I were to wait for the right time I’ll be 40 when I have my first child. I am ready for a relationship now and there is a great guy standing in front of me but I never gave him a chance.

After a while thinking and wondering inside yourself you finally decided to give Ray a chance. You went to Ray’s apartment that night and knocked on his door, fortunate enough for you, Ray just came back from attending a business meeting over dinner. Looking a bit exhausted but you can still see his face got lit up when he saw you at the door. So you told him;

Ray, I decided to take your offer. I will go for a break, a vacation but on one condition. You will have to come with me. Maybe we could try and make things work. No promises, but let’s just try.

You have made Ray the happiest man on earth that day. That particular day not just he had concluded a multi million dollar project and a grand opening for his new sub company in a few days but to his surprised and adding to his already jumbling joy, you finally decided to give him a chance.

Let’s talk about ray a little bit. Ray, a man in his 30’s, not married and never been is a successful businessman and a “devoted to one lady” kind of guy; not very much a characteristics that you might think of for a man of his caliber. So, I’m telling does who have been generalizing us men, not all are bad. Ray is one of them, one of the good guys and so am I. (carry basket)

The next morning, Ray is supposed to have a photo shoot session for GQ magazine. Ray asked for your help on it and you recommended Steven, a professional photographer whom you’ve worked with a couple of times and currently working with you on building up the image for Ray’s new company. Steven on the other hand is a divorcee in his 40’s. Steven and you used to have this certain shades of greens between you but it was just a blow of a wind, just a one-time thing (Thanks to mar) and it’s really not a surprise that Ray didn’t know about it.

You and Steven were supposed to work together to pick the best photos to be featured on that GQ magazine. As Ray is a very important man, who is your boss and also Steven’s biggest client, the picking gets tough. So, you and Steven have to spend the whole night together to finish the assignment.
As time goes on, with every tick of the clock you found that Steven is a very interesting person, someone that you have been looking for over the years. There’s this little voices inside your head singing:

All of my life, where have you been?

Without you realizing it, you are suddenly falling in love with this guy; deep in love, mesmerized by his charm and gentle way. All of a sudden your lips were locked tight; you can feel the adrenaline rushing through your veins. It’s almost like the feeling of getting on high, full of ecstasy…

Suddenly, Steven pulled back and said;

I can’t do this. I’m with Laura, I’m seeing her…

That was news. Suddenly Laura and Ray came to mind. On another note, you’d wished that you knew about this thing between Steven and Laura, you are upset that Laura, your best friend, never told you anything about it. Why is everything trembling down now at this very moment?

What would you do? How would you react? Which one will you choose? Who will you touch, and who will touch you? Will you just go and fight for it or …

P/S : I still have to go to school tomorrow. There’s this Gotong Royong Perdana whereby every farking school in Malaysia will have a gotong royong. So, my weekened will be cut short. I’m supposed to go for The Borneo Tattoo Convention .. wahhh!!!
