Arriving at the resort, Mrs. Gomez immediately brought them to the Country Club Garden. This open area is the venue of the Class 2015 Grand Reunion soon.
Mrs. Gomez was assigned to oversee the preparation, and the reason she brought her students is to observe the work of organizing a huge event.
The organizer — who will work with Mrs. Gomez, is also her student years back and now is a famous Event Organizer in the city.
Kirk Lopez showed the students the theme he prepared for the event. He made quick explanations of the settings.
Now Kirk divided the students into three groups. The freshmen, sophomore, and junior HRM students are combining into a group to work together.
Mrs. Gomez wanted to see what the older students learned from recent years and what the new students could do.
She believes that it's not a matter if the older students learn it from her course or the new student will be more creative during their Senior High years.
It was how Mrs. Gomez gets to know her new students of what capability they have already. In that way, she already has an eye for those showing early talents.
Now that the students are divided. Hailey and Nadia end up in the same group. Kirk announced that they should make a theme of a backdrop for a red carpet photoshoot.
All the materials they needed, such as; balloons, flowers, some art materials, curtains, etc. that they can use for an event, are all ready.
But first, the group leaders have to pick a rolled paper in a glass bowl with the theme written on it.
Mrs. Gomez and Kirk will judge the creation and possibly use the idea as decorations for the Class Reunion on Friday night.
Hailey's group picked up the flower theme. She enjoyed herself helping to decorate a flower stand to put up on the corner of the backdrop.
She keenly observes the other groups of how they work on their themes. One group is doing a backdrop using curtains, and the other group is ballons.
And it impressed Hailey how everyone was this creative. It was the talents she needed for her Life Project.
After forty-five minutes, the time for them to finish the backdrop, Mrs. Gomez and Kirk smiled at each other. It satisfied them with the creations the students came up with.
Next is Mrs. Gomez brought the junior students in the kitchen to help the chefs bake pastries while the freshmen remained in the garden with the sophomores to show how to create Fruit decorations.
They started from pineapples, watermelons, apples, kiwis, bananas, oranges mixed with other fruits. When it was done, Mrs. Gomez led them to another kitchen to make a few dishes. They are happy that the food they prepare is for themselves.
During lunch, the students gathered back in the garden, seated on the grass, and having lunch.
Hailey and her friends choose a little isolated place from the others to gossip about sensitive topics.
Hazel made a stolen photo of herself with her friends in the background and posted it on her Instagram.

At lunch break, Hailey excuses herself from her friends to make a call. She sat on a bench under an Araucaria pine tree.
Browsing her Instagram contacts, Hailey presses a call. She waited for a moment, but the other line wasn't picking up her call.
Hailey was about to hang up when a nervous voice echoed from the other line.
"President Davies, I'm very sorry, ma'am, if I haven't answered right away! Your father is talking to me just now. I have to take a distance from him." Explain by the person on the other line.
Hailey instructed the manager not to tell her father whenever she'll contact him. So then, she understood if Manager Brown didn't answer her call right away. However, the manager made another mistake.
"Ahem. You forget something, Manager Brown."
The other person on the line was silent for a moment while he tried to process her words. "Oh, I'm sorry, Miss Hailey! I forgot about it."
"Hm..." Hailey told her employees not to address her by her real name every time she was out of the country. Everyone only knew her as simply Hailey Hillson.
"What report do you want to hear, Ma'am?" asked John Brown, manager of the HR Department.
"I just wanted to ask regarding the hiring process, Manager Brown. How many applicants meet the qualities I am looking for?"
"So far, President... I mean, Miss Hailey, I have more or less 500 applicants to approve, ma'am."
"Only 500 so far?"
"Yes, Miss Hailey. We received a lot of applications online, but they didn't meet the required qualities we needed."
"Hmm... For at least 5000 service crew, I needed only this number we got so far? As I expected, I am kind of perceiving this matter already. Alright! Let me solve this myself."
"Miss Hailey, are you going to fire me?"
Creasing her forehead, Hailey mused. Did something happen? So then, she asked the manager. "Why should I do that?"
"Because I am incompetent, ma'am. But I promised that the HR department would work harder from today onwards!"
"I would be glad then. And don't worry, I'm not firing anyone. Anyway, there will be changes in our hiring process. I want the announcement to be open in P Country for now. I want you to negotiate with P Country's Consulate to introduce us to the best agency who will handle the hiring matters."
"Miss Hailey, did I hear correctly? We will only hire from P Country."
"Yes! You heard me right! I will revise the information about our hiring requirements. I will redo the Requirements we look for and information to the application they can fill up online until physical interviews."
"Okay, Miss Hailey. So then, should I stop the ongoing online hiring?"
"Yes! I will contact you once I complete the new data."
"Understood, Miss Hailey."
"Anyway, how was everyone? Did dad already have final choices among the builder's companies that submitted their proposals?"
"In what I heard, Miss, they haven't yet. Your father was firing the H Company because of the fault in the East Sector."
"Come again? What happens in the East Sector?"
Manager Brown swallowed the lump in his throat before he replied. "The Third Tower was built poorly that led to an accident, ma'am."
"What!?" She freaked out. "How does that happen!? Did anyone get hurt?"
Stuttering, Manager Brown replied, "Yes, ma'am. They took the workers that got hurt to Dream City Hospital to confine. Chairman Davies, your father, was furious about the matter. It was the reason he was talking to me. He was asking for new workers to hire for the meantime."
"So it was that bad. But I'm surprised that dad who personally talks to you. Where is Bryan, who was assigned to oversee in construction of the luxurious condominiums?"
"Um. The vice president made a trip to California, Miss Hailey."
"Bryan went to America? How many days did he already have been in California?"
"Almost a week now, Miss Hailey. But I heard he is on his way back to take care of the problem."
"He better be!" 'Bryan, are you with Eva? I need to contact Pit to run a quick investigation!' Hailey thought inwardly.
'Bryan, what are you doing!? You are supposed to focus on our projects!'
"At the moment, it was Director Wilson who helped the Chairman to solve this matter." Manager Brown added. "The Planning Department was in chaos, Miss Hailey."
"Hm. Then I better call Geoffrey. Thank you, Manager Brown."
"You are welcome, ma'am."
After the call ended, Hailey was cursing inwardly. Bryan was out of the country, and now an accident occurred to condominiums they were constructing at present.
She was desperate to finish Dream City in the next two years. She is supposed to open it next year, but too much work. Besides, all proposals she got these passing years are trash ideas.
She badly needed to find the best person who could work in her dream city and then hired all the workers she needed to fill the Exclusive Metropolis.
The employees she needed are workers for the hotels and resorts around the city. Including doctors, nurses, and entertainers to high in bars in her city. She also needs hospitable and patient mall clerks, on-call housekeeping, and chefs...
All decent works; she needed all!
Within the following year, everything should finish preparing for the city's opening in the next year.
But how could she do that when problem after another occur?
Hailey heaves a helpless sigh. She needs to go back to Australia. But first, Vince should find Eva to end their contract. She needs Pitt to hurry to catch Eva.
And above all, the SHEN GROUP!
"Vince, please send a proposal to my company," she prayed.
How was your weekend?
