I rarely speak with Mr. Henky anyway. I mostly dealt with Bambang and Bisera. Mr. Henky often going out of the country. Usually to Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. Sometimes accompanied by Mrs. Rini, his wife from Sampang. Mr. Henky’s wife was very georgeous, grace and pretty. She had her own business on Matraman region. As a civil engineer from Bandung Institute of Technology, she had a construction business with several of her companions. I happen to know that the construction business was named PT Inti Perkasa Delta.
Sometimes Mrs. Rini come to our company’s building. She brought dishes from the restaurant for all the employees here. Sometimes I had got it, but sometimes I missed as well. There are thirty-six employees in PT Delta Central Perkasa.
Mrs. Rini had about the same age with me. Whether she graduated from Department of Civil Engineering at the Bandung Institute of Technology, then I graduated from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Gadjah Mada. My university located on Yogyakarta. But I was not so close with Mrs. Rini. I deliberately kept our distance as well. I did not want to fall in love with her. How ridiculous if you fell in love with your boss’s wife, didn’t you?.
“Let’s go,” Bisera commanded me. She brought her beloved laptop.
“All right,” I replied, “But I’ll say goodbye to Mr. Bambang first.”
“Bambang went to Singapore.”
“Oh, for what matters?” I asked.
“Come on, let’s go, it’s none of your business anyway”
I followed behind her. Bisera walked with grace and confidence. Her chin slightly raised upwards. Having simple makeup but interesting. Her lips was so natural with a thin sweep of lip-gloss. Actually, this girl was pretty enough, I thought. But her grumpy was like a kind of devil.
We went down the stairs to get to the court office. When we got there, Mr. Sonny, one of the company’s driver who managed to fetch the staff already heat up the car. A diesel-powered Suzuki Panther. The car seemed well maintained. For a company engaged in our field, the impression on the customer was extremely important. For that reason, our performance should be kept outstanding on front of them. Including the performance of the car that drove us.
