Baby sitting kids is not an easy one right?
His name is Mr Alexander Cruz….
A very young ….
The CEO of the popular company… The Cruz’s enterprises.
He’s a father of four very beautiful kids.
Though it’s really tough….
I mean taking care of the four kids.
Especially the youngest baby Kira
Baby Kira is just 7 months old.
And she finds daddy a soulmate
Isn’t that funny?
But how will a baby of just 7 months old get her daddy a soulmate?
Sandy Cruz…. whose just 15 years old.
Nicholas Cruz….whose 16 years old
Nicky Cruz…. 5 years old
And Baby Kira…. 7 months old.
And now daddy is taking the kids for a summer picnic.
In the province Cebu……
And here comes Miss Marga Dantes.
The poor gardener’s daughter.
Who lives far away in the Cebu province.
Who’s the soulmate?
What happens when Marga finds missing baby Kira?
How will the summer picnic be?
Are we ready to find out the adventures of the summer picnic?
I throw the window open as smiles escaped my lips.
“Wow….” I said as the cool breeze blow raising the dust.
I love summer…. .
It is the best I must say.
I watched Mrs Charlotte pack my clothes in a backpack.
“Don’t forget to pack my makeups Mrs Charlotte” I said as I threw my wardrobe open.
“OK… And where are you pair of new sneakers?” Mrs Charlotte asked.
“I’ll get it” I said searching in the wardrobe.
You don’t know how excited I am right now.
Am so excited…
Finally daddy is going to fulfil his promises.
And that’s a “SUMMER PICNIC”.
I’ve heard a lot about Cebu City and I can’t wait to see it.
We are going to spend some quality time together in our guesthouse there.
Uhmm… Have I introduced myself?
Oh please pardon my manners….
I was too overwhelmed with excitement that I forgot to introduce myself.
My name is Sandy Cruz.
And am really beautiful guys.
I know am not supposed to be the one telling you but I just like flaunting what I know is true.
And sad news… Mom died 7 months ago in a plane crash.
Just when my youngest sister Baby Kira was few weeks old.
We’ve been grieving all through.
So to cheer us up, dad decided to take us on a summer picnic.
And now the baby is 7 months old.
I can’t wait to explore the town.
That reminds me I haven’t told you my age right?
Am 15 years old but I look 18 though.
Cos am quite curvy and gorgeous.
And I have a boyfriend…
… I don’t want daddy to know about this.
And Mrs Charlotte… She’s my nanny.
Let’s not call it nanny cos am a big girl already.
And right now am packing my stuffs we’ll be leaving tomorrow.
I can’t wait!
I walked into the kitchen and as usual, Nicholas was there.
“Urghh… You’re so slow chef Andy am really famished” Nicholas grumbled
“Am sorry sir! It will be done in a few more minutes time” Chef Andy said.
I burst into laughter as I walked in.
Nicholas only sighed immediately he saw me.
Of course I was going to pick on him.
I opened the refrigerator and took out a can of yoghurt.
“You’re such a cry baby Nico” I teased him.
“Better stay away from me Sandy! Stop poke nosing” He said as he backed me.
I rolled my eyes and snorted.
“Yeah right… You know if you are really hungry and wants the food to be ready then you can help Chef Andy cut the carrots stop being a lazy ass” I said again
“Eish… Sandy go away!” he yelled at me.
I burst into laughter again making him feel angry.
That’s Nico and I for you!
We are best friends and siblings too but yuck! He’s a big eater and I find the slightest opportunity to pick on him.
“Fine! Suit yourself while I go pack my stuffs for tomorrow” I said
“Like you are the one packing it when your nanny is there” He said as I frowned
He knows how much I hate being told that I have a nanny.
I grunted at him.
“I am a big girl and I don’t have a nanny” I said defensively.
“Yeah right” He laughed.
“So annoying…” I said as I turned to leave.
“Hey! I packed my strolling shoes” He said as I smiled.
“I can’t wait” I said as he winked at me.
“I’ll go check on Nicky and then baby” I said as he nodded.
“Open up Nicky! You have to eat” Nanny Mia forced me.
“Oh please nanny I don’t want to…” I cried
“You have to Nicky…you don’t want daddy to get angry do you?” She asked.
“Arrghh… Nanny I want to have enough appetite to eat tomorrow when leaving for the picnic” I said childishly.
Just then, the door swing open and Sandy walked in.
I quickly sprang up.
“Sandy is it morning already?” I asked anxiously as Sandy burst into laughter.
“Morning?” Sandy laughed
Nanny also smiled.
Can’t they answer questions without laughing.
I frowned my face and folded my arms.
“What’s funny?” I asked angrily
“It’s funny because it’s just 7pm” Sandy said
I jumped on the bed.
I can’t wait to get out of here.
Baby Kira was already fast asleep in her cot.
She doesn’t even know what a picnic is.
THE NEXT MORNING…
The alarm clock rang noisily
And we all jumped up from the bed.
“IS IT MORNING?” we asked in unison.
We rushed into the bathroom….
