Lulu Writes Fiction - The CEO Series Part 4

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you
Come let me love you, come love me again.
- Annie's Song, John Denver

So sweet… the CEO IS in love. He didn't think it could happen again, but it did. He's in lurve....and he wants to get married.

But how would the public take it? How would his employees take it? Afterall, he had potrayed himself as someone madly in love with his very recently departed wife. When she passed away, the entire corporation wept with him.

And here he is now, falling head over heels over his late wife’s ex-sister-in-law, who is also the housekeeper of his mansion.

She is a good woman, a lovely lady. Not a hot babe, but a truly beautiful lady.
but …how were the masses going to take it?

As it was, some silly reporters had asked him out of the blues, if he was romantically involved with her, and if a certain date mentioned was the date set for the wedding?
“rumours, just rumuors”, he replied while menggelingkan [or is it menganggukkan] his kepala.
After all, he smirked to himself, they got the wrong date. You can’t fault this as a lie.
There was no date yet, as Noreen, the apple of his eye, was upset that he had even mentioned it.
But now that Harry has convinced Noreen to accept the impending marriage, I can go ahead with my plans.
[that harry, smart boy. Convinced Noreen that it would increase my popularity amongst the registered shareholders. Noreen has to think of Harry’s future too, and what’s good for me is good for Harry, which in turn, is good for her baby]

So how now? Big wedding would be great.
Get the Bee Gees (minus one Gibb) to sing my favourite All I have to do is Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream. Afterall, the BRUNEL group’s Chairman gets Mariah Carrey, Michael Jackson etc for this children’s concert.
Ooo…. And Jovian Mandagie his and hers, afterall, the other guy is so yesterday.
Nationwide celebration at all branches.
Maybe even declare a holiday for the employees?
Maybe even a carriage to go round the boulevard, instead of a limo.

Oh…. Beautiful, beautiful wedding…
And so, the CEO was making his plans. Needless to say, the CEO, not known for spending his own money, was planning to use the corporations $$ and park them as part of Advertising and Promotion Expenditure.
Oh… beautiful, beautiful luxurious wedding.
And I don’t have to pay a single cent.

Alas… that was not to be.
The heir apparent of kareP Corporation, a local company, but with older roots suddenly announced HIS wedding. Heir-apparent – learned, suave, humble, good looking was the #1 bachelor in the country. And he decided to get married, in as simple a manner as possible, in spite of being a part of the noble house. AND he said not to be wasteful in spending money on congratulatory messages and instead, give the money to the poor and the underpriveleged. AND as if that was not bad enough, he would foot the bill himself!

$^%$&# spoil market!
How can I now continue with my plans of a grand wedding?

And now, his plans were spoilt.
He had to play by the new benchmark.
And that meant no grand wedding
No Bee Gees
No dream-dream-dream.
No press congratulatory advertisments
No bouquets and bouquets of flowers.
No chance to let the minions do the bodek-mengampu stuff.
Beaten
Checked
Circumvented
Curbed
Dashed
Disappointed
Ditched
Foiled
Frustrated
Obstructed
Prevented
Restrained
Thwarted
UPSET
[don't you just love the thesaurus?]

And so, that was the sad story of why the otherwise known for his outlandish spending CEO had a simple wedding.

On the plus side, he gained a good wife
AND
Harry’s moved out :)

now, really... what else could the CEO ask for?

Does it get better? Does it get worse? Lulu's not telling yet.
But stay tuned to

Lulu,

Did u have a heavy dinner last night or a unusual overdose sumptuous lunch just now?

OK. Let me continue the fiction....."an ABC of the CEO even bragged that the popularity of the CEO had zoomed up and up into space. Until when groans and moans from his employees made the ABC realized his spinning had failed like a two-tonne lying elephant trying to fly.

The moral lesson: popularity don't stick because you are getting married.

The oil baron of a neighbouring state has invited the ceo and his baharu(but 2nd-hand) wife over for his daughter's wedding-do. The ceo was hoping mad when he compared his small-scale wedding party with the lavish one given by that oil baron's daughter.

The moral of the story is: It's far better to be an oil baron than to be a ceo

What A Lulu said...

terlupa ya, Brunel [aka oil baron]'s daughter is getting married sometime this month, and that would be the CEOs couple's first public function.

i guess CEO can take some consolation that he is flying there via private jet, and not courtesy of TonyF [not to be mistaken as TonyP].

Thanks for reminding Lulu, anon5:31pm!

Yet neither CEO, oil baron's daughter nor heir apparent to old money can top a village lass turned songbird, who trumped them all to wed live on national television.

get married anywhichway u want but pls girls, women just pls don't wear a tiara/crown on top of yer tudung- why is it u can't see how silly it looks, u are never going to be a queen so don't pretend even for a day - or is it just me?

A political analyst like some cohorts are making good imaginations that popularity comes with marriage. Does it? Maybe. But more like perfume, it lasts a day or two but the stinks comes back. Anyway, good try for promotions?

What kind of ceo is that--- when his own brother's nasi kandar shop went kaput in Perth, he did not lift a finger to help out. After all, his RM60 million mansion is just nearby

Well, the CEO is not that stupid u know. Instead of spending his own for money for an official honeymoon, he uses the excuse of official overseas trips, bringing along his new wife (a-but-then) and they can have their hoenymoon on the expense of the company lor.
An maybe you should also add, the 1st simple wedding is to ward off any critism...the big "money splurging" bash is coming soon...only directors and top honchos are invited.
