They arrived at the house. It's a two-story modern bungalow house having the same design with other houses in that subdivision. The only difference was the exterior and lawn landscaping style on every house in that place.
It's just a thirty minutes drive from the infinity Jade Tower, very convenient for Catherine if she wanted to visit her sister and family right away.
When Caroline saw the car in the garage, her face broke into a wide smile, her second baby...hooray! her very own car! She runs her hand on the shiny surface of the car, she loves to learn how to drive one of these days.
Ramon began bringing in the baggage into the living room, then he was instructed by John to bring the luggage into the second floor so that the women don't have to carry the heavy baggage on their own.
John, Clara, and the infant remained in the living room, while Caroline and Catherine toured the house starting from the ground floor to the second floor.
"Wow, I love the three bedrooms! They are spacious and comfy! Everything in this house is sparkly clean and brand new!" Caroline was grinning from ear to ear. She never owned such a stunning and lavish property in her entire life.
Catherine watched the happiness in her sister's eyes. Caroline loves everything expensive and new! For all that is worth, this house was the late Joseph's gift to the woman he sexually abused and almost killed, and most importantly a gift to his unborn baby that he will never have a chance to hug and kiss. She wondered, if her twin didn't demand all these, would John's family offered all this luxury to Caroline? Maybe yes and maybe not. But they did offer Caroline five million pesos for the damaged their son had inflicted on her when it comes to the physical, emotional and psychological aspect of her being.
Her sister, smart as the fox was never satisfied and demanded more, in her twin's mind, the more the better.
Then she had to remind herself that the late Joseph stated in his suicide later that just in case Caroline will get pregnant with his child they had to support her financially, all the way.
And that what happened today, the Queen has finally arrived to claim her rewards.
Caroline entered the master's bedroom, the biggest room among the three rooms on the second floor. "Ah, this will be my room!" she murmured. Then she saw the crib in the corner. "Wow, sis, you bought this one for my daughter—?"
"Yeah, I'm sure you will choose this room for your bedroom, I know you like bigger rooms, you have always been dreaming of one..." Catherine smiled.
Caroline jumped into the bed joyfully. "Wow! I love this room! It has all the things I wanted in a room. The bed is super soft, I feel like I'm sleeping and floating in heaven!" she shrieked in delight. A moment later, she rose from the bed and went to the small terrace connected to the master's bedroom. She looked outside. It feels good to own a house like this! It boosted her confidence and self-worth, she is rich now, amazing! she murmured to herself. She felt a bit down earlier, but now she finally owned something she can be proud of. Owning a brand new house and lot, a brand new car registered under her name and with money allotment of one hundred thousand pesos monthly, and to top it all, she also has ten million pesos cash in her bank account ready to spend. Her life is getting better!
She's already rich beyond her imagination!
And suddenly her world becoming much brighter and rosy every second that passes by.
"I'm a rich lady now, sis! We are both rich girls now! Can you believe it? I never expected this!" Caroline gushes.
"Yes. I know my sister is already rich," Catherine replied in amusement.
Caroline's smile never leaves her face.
"You should see your bathroom dear sister," Catherine said.
Caroline flew to the bathroom door and opened it widely. "Oh boy! This is awesome, I have a bathtub and shower and the tiles are super cool!" she exclaimed in jubilation.
After a few minutes of appreciating and admiring her lavish bathroom, they exited the master bedroom and checked the rest of the rooms, they weren't as grand as the master's bedroom but still impressive none the less, the room here is much bigger and nicer than the rooms in her cousin Grace's house.
Done on the second floor.
They went down the stairway and went to the kitchen. It has a two-door refrigerator, the cabinets and marble countertop was super nice. There were an oven and sandwich maker, electric kettle, dish cabinet, and black gas burner stove, the appliances were top notch. It's every homemaker's dream...owning such a magnificent kitchen is every woman's desire.
"I haven't bought much when it comes to glasses, plates and other kitchen utensils because you might want to shop for your own, I only bought a few so that you can have something to use right away," Catherine explained.
"It's okay, sis! I will go shopping with you after a few days, would you accompany me? pretty please..." she asked with puppy dogs eyes.
"Of course, I will!" Catherine nods her head.
"Now that's settled, let's go to the garage area and inspect my first ever car!" Caroline grinned from ear to ear, there was a smug smile on her face as if she just won a major jackpot in the lottery draw.
They walked towards the garage area exiting through the main door that was situated near the living room.
Catherine passed by on John and Clara watching a singing show on the flat-screen TV, she winked at her husband who winked back at her.
She handed the car keys to her sister.
They walked past the manicured lawn and went to the garage beside the house, there the shiny car...color red Ford Fiesta was waiting for them.
Catherine saw Ramon outside the gate of the house. "Ramon, can you please give us a ride just around the neighborhood?" she said.
"Sure," Ramon responded. He opened the iron gate wide.
Caroline gave the car keys to Ramon and they slid in the passenger seat.
After putting the key in the ignition and turn the key to start the engine, Ramon steered the vehicle away from the garage, he parked the car outside the gate, then he exited the car and closed the gate before resuming driving the car.
They were just passing along the streets, getting to know the subdivision's layout, there's a basketball court, mini-park, children's playground and a swimming pool in the clubhouse. It's a nice neighborhood and Caroline feels at home right away. This is just the place she would love to live, it's a clean, posh and peaceful neighborhood.
"What do you think of the place?" Catherine asked.
"Lovely, I like living here! Just my type of neighborhood!" Caroline responded in glee.
"Good to know that you like it," Catherine smiled. "Ramon, let's go back to the house now. I think my mother in law is already tired and ready to rest for the night," she said.
"Yes, Ma'am," Ramon answered.
A few minutes later they were back to the house.
Ramon parked the car in the garage and gave the car keys back to Caroline.
The twins entered the main door and sat down on the sofa.
John put a brown envelope in the center table. "Caroline, here's the brown envelope containing the ATM card with your name, it already has one hundred thousand cash reserve. You can withdraw cash from that card anytime you want. I will replenish the card with the same amount every first day of the month," he said.
"Thank you so much, brother-in-law," Caroline said without looking at his face, her eyes were drawn to the brown card. That would be one hundred thousand cash every month, holy cow! She will be getting richer every month. And she hasn't touched yet the ten million pesos in her bank account, and there's already cash waiting at her disposal in the ATM card in front of her.
Wow, she's very lucky! It's raining money above her head and she was able to siphon it.
Catherine stood up and kissed her mother in law's cheek. "We're going now, Mom," she said. She looked at her sister. "Bye sis, see you tomorrow," she said.
"Bye Mom, bye sister-in-law," John said.
Clara nodded at them and smiled. "You take care, guys!"
The couple exited the main door and boarded the car waiting outside the gate of the house. Ramon turns the key and the engine comes alive...he navigated the vehicle outside the subdivision.
