Keira woke up early the next morning, and a big smile curved on her evenly and naturally plump lips as she looked at the clock on the wall.
"Finally!" She blurted out happily. It was the first time she had woken up early, without the help of their maid or an alarm clock.
She was trying to get used to waking up early by herself. It had already been a few days, and she succeeded.
Then, she quickly rose up and did some stretchings.
"Ouch… Geez, I should have done this before," she murmured when she still felt pain in some parts of her body.
It was a big adjustment since she was lazy most of the time. Her body was not used to various activities, even to simple exercises.
It was a little strange, because, although she was having a hard time, she was actually enjoying the physical activities she was doing right now...
She went out of her room and greeted her parents at the dining table.
The meaningful look between her parents did not escape her eyes, and she laughed.
"Are you proud of me? I wake up on my own for the first time and I should celebrate after breakfast. Dad, let me shop for the outfits I should bring inside the Military School," she said, grinning.
She did not need to ask for permission since she had many black cards and her parents did not mind how much and for what she was spending.
It's just, she was like that… She wanted to tell them what she was going to do, especially, her plans for the day.
Today was her day off from the deadly exercises and training from the coaches.
She was going to take her time, going through the shops and buying the things she would take with her to the Military School.
She lacked sportswear since she was not that athletic, and to be honest, she did not like to wear those tights and rubber shoes. Anyway, she would just have some of it customized, so she could pick her own style and color.
The only sport she went in for was tennis, because she liked the skirt outfit and she found it cute and sexy. But she rarely played it, most of the time she just displayed her good taste in fashion and beauty.
"Alright, just make sure you buy appropriate ones, and I mean it… Do not show too much skin…" her father said with a warning tone.
Keira blinked an eye and said, "Noted, Daddy."
Then, her eyes widened when she realized something. "Oh, you think I can pass the test."
Her father shrugged his shoulder as he said, "NO...but we'll never know if you get lucky or not. Besides, it's good if you buy more conservative outfits. It will surely be better, than always wearing revealing clothes."
Keira's mouth twitched. "Dad, that's what you call F-A-S-H-I-O-N..."
Mrs. Chan rolled her eyes. That father and daughter tandem always did that to her, like she was not included in the circle. She felt like an outcast when the two start bantering around.
Kaira called her friends, asking to meet at one o'clock at the mall, which was recently opened in their area.
As usual, she was with her two bodyguards, Jim and John. Her father was not strict with her. She could actually go wherever she liked, as long as her bodyguards were around her.
"Hello John, dear," Drey blinked his eyes several times at John, and the latter remained expressionless and immediately shifted his gaze to Keira.
Keira laughed at John's expression. He was asking for help, to restrain Drey from taking advantage of him. But then, she playfully shook her head and moved her lips for him to read as, 'Sorry, let my friend enjoy this day with you for a while.'
John's shoulders dropped after reading Keira's lips...
He was startled when Drey pinched his arm and said, "Don't worry, dear John. You're still my first love, even if I meet more hot young men inside the Military School. And I'm sure you will miss me… By that time I hope you will realize how much you like me..."
May laughed out hard. "Oh, God forbid… I'm sure John wants to punch you right now and he just can't do that, because Keira instructed him to be nice with you." May mocked Drey.
Drey pouted his lips, looking at John he asked instead, "Is that true, my love?"
May laughed once more, "Oh please Drey, let John go. Look at the red face of the poor man. He looks so embarrassed."
"I'm good… As long as I can see May laugh like that." John murmured, but Jim nudged him on the ribs.
Jim was older than him. He was like an uncle. His stare scolded him, saying, 'Stop hitting on Madam's friend.'
"I heard you… But I'll pretend to be deaf in order to not get hurt." Drey murmured and smiled at him.
Keira walked inside the shopping mall with her friends, it was the new shopping mall from Liu Group.
"Wow, Liu's are really rocking and nailing it. I've heard they now have around 72 malls, 2,303 stores nationwide." May gasped in astonishment.
"Moreover, their only heir is also under Keira's father's commanding," Lana mentioned.
Keira creased her forehead and stopped walking to look at Lana with questioning face.
Lana rolled her eyes.
"For goodness sake Keira, you're really one of a kind. Can you, at least, remember the people you are attending to a party with?" Lana complained.
Keira was the only heiress she knew, who did not care about socializing with others around their circle much. Well, she often socialized, but mostly she did not remember people inside their circle.
"Jeru Liu, like your precious Zach, he's also a young general, with four ranks and got the promotion earlier, than Zach actually. He's also handsome, you know. I've heard he was out of the country during the ceremony, that's why you haven't seen him." Lana explained.
Keira knew that Liu Group was one of the largest conglomerates in their country, with interests in shopping mall development and management, retail, real estate development, banking, and tourism. She had also heard that Liu Group had only one heir.
"Oh, I see. But I'm sure my Zach is more handsome than him…" Keira said proudly.
Lana just scratched her head. She hadn't met with both of them in person yet, so she couldn't say otherwise… But obviously, Keira was too blinded by that Zacharias Lim, so she couldn't wait to meet that man herself and see if Keira would be in good hands in the future…
