Power or Money

The lady took her niece's hand and ushered her to sit next to her. She was in her late fifties. Her hair was gray and there were some wrinkles under her eyelids,  despite all that, she looked firm and commanding. She was rich, famous and powerful. Her husband died ten years ago leaving her no kids but a great fortune. She has been managing this for a long time. The companies that deal with the petrol were more than five major ones. Two in America, one was in Britain. For the  other two companies, one was in the gulf area and another one was  in Venezuela. There were also the branches for those companies scattered  all over the world. she wanted to train her niece to take care of this huge responsibility.

 Her niece was seventeen and she wanted her to understand how to manage such huge companies after her death. She was telling her about power. The girl was thinking that money was the power. Her aunt told her that money was only a mean to get you somewhere. Power is the target.  If you own the power, money can come easily. The aunt was hoping for the head of the parliament. She was elected as a member six years ago, and she was trying to get to that post since then. That is why she wanted her niece to think about power. But her niece is absolutely different from her. She thinks money is power. You can buy voters to elect you and vote for you. Or you can pay to get whatever you desire, as long as you have the ability to pay for it.

The girl came and sat beside her aunt. It is useless to discuss the matter with her. Each party is convinced with his own ideas. The aunt started to tell her niece to think about power seriously. There is something which cannot enter the little head of that girl. She thought to herself, we have more than fourteen companies all over the world. Our monthly net profit is nearly more than one seventy million dollars a month. My aunt is driving me crazy. What does she need? What is there to be put into consideration?

  • Bakit mahal kong kaibigan? Risty, hindi mo nais na maging mayaman? Pero kahit anong sabihin mo. Whatever you say, I agree with you. When lovely ladies talk, we must listen and obey. Being rich is something nice. we all need or rather, all of us want that, don't we people? Thanks, Risty for your nice and polite comment in the most critical situations.

  • Cinta, cinta, Ya tuhan, apa yang saya lakukan, Rebeka? Seluruh duniya katakan dengan cinta. Katakan padaku. Tell me what to do Rebeka. The whole world is talking about love. So, you want to have them all. Can't you think of anyone to bring the other two with it? Thanks, Rebeka for your nice idea!

  • Sir Dara, if I were the niece of that rich Aunt, I will not choose anything… because for me, both are negative…kidding! Well, if the person has an evil heart both choices could be a disaster, but if both possession will be use for greater good, all will end well.

    Thanks for sharing; I don’t like to be as rich as the Aunt in real life… maybe in my wildest dream.
