I’m too excited to post this tomorrow.
My Prince was very busy yesterday. We missed him a lot, especially Mikey although he called us when he was available. First things first and the best at the end.
He had business meeting with a major, thanks to Antonio who is the member of the same political party as a major. Antonio knew my Prince is apolitical, but he thought he would change his mind if he will meet with the major in person. Namely, if you are highly positioned person in some organization or company who joined one of leading political party in our country (city), it increases the party rating and opens many other business opportunities, benefits and powerful influence in various domains for you. Antonio thought that if my Prince join their political party, it would be good for him personally and for the Hotel business. Antonio is not involved into politics but have business deals with major, his cabinet and his political party. They met in major’s office together with my *b.g. (Silvano – fake name). Well, the meeting wasn’t productive as both, the major and Antonio wanted and expected. The major said to my Prince how he heard many good things about him from many sides and Antonio. He promised him many benefits, Hotel prosperity and progress if he join them. He even offered him some position in his political party. My Prince thanked him and reject it. On major’s question: “May I know why?” he said:
- No offense, mister major, but I do not like politics and I do not trust politicians.
The major: I see. Does it mean you do not trust me too, mister Prince?
Prince: No, sir, I don’t trust you.
The major: Why? What do you think of me, mister Prince?
Prince: I think of you as of every other politician in this country. I learned not to trust politicians at all because I see a lot of lying, cheating, corruption, stealing, dirty games and similar dishonest deeds. Honest man and politics doesn’t go together. Are you involved in any of this, you know yourself, mister major.
The major chuckled, thanked him for honesty and said that he misses great opportunity, but his offer is still on the table.
My Prince told us that Antonio was disappointed, but he respected my Prince’s standpoint. If he is strongly convinced in something, he will never withdraw or compromise no matter how much it will cost him or how much he loses. Honestly? I don’t know how many people would dare to say such things directly to major’s face except him and my Ivy. I wouldn’t dare.
The second meeting was with mister Valter and high level business “players” in “XXX” city. Not just as his body guard, but as the one who can detect false motives and trickery. He was very well paid for the job. My Prince told us that the meeting went well, smooth and easy. Everyone plaid fair. Some of them are our business partners too. Anyhow, he didn’t want to stay on business lunch saying to mister Valter he has some private business to do. He treated Silvano with pizza and visited *Davor’s mother (his cousin’s mother). When they arrived she offered them beverages and she told him that he came in the right time to collect the gifts which Davor wanted her to send him. She was trying to send it for two weeks but had no time for she leaves home at 6:30 and return at 18.00. Anyhow, she gave him PlayStation 4, Xbox, games for both consoles and his computer. All of it was functional and in very good condition. She said she is happy he will take that garbage out of her house because she hates it. My Prince thanked her and when he came home, he donated it to the orphanage after today’s e.b. meeting. The kids were very happy.
Now, the “cherry on the top”. The last on his “list” was visiting humanitarian organization his father established at the beginning of civil war in the city he visited yesterday. He googled it and find the their headquarter address. He and Silvano drove there and when they arrived they met the secretary. When my Prince told her who he is and who was his father, she called the director who arrived within 15 minutes. He was very thrilled to meet the son of the man who started all (My Prince wasn’t born in that time). The director praised his father telling him how hard he worked on collecting food, clothes and medicine all over the Europe and that he provided shelter for hundreds of refugees. He even took 5 members family in his home for six months. After the civil war, the humanitarian organization opened 3 seniors houses, two in this city and one in “XXX” city. They care for old and homeless who can’t afford senior house. The main income are foundations and charities. The government gives them very minimal financial support that barely covers expenses. They have minimal number of stuff and only few volunteers because people mostly volunteer in dog shelters no matter how often they appeal for help. Hearing it my Prince was very angry and he became much bigger hater of “dog mania” that extremely expanded in our country turning people into fanatical dog lovers. The director gave him a short tour in both houses and brochures. My Prince told us he cried when he saw how many old people were abandoned or without families whose existence depends upon our good hearts and empathy. He said to director that he will talk to our e.b. and ask for the help. If they agree, he will send a team who will explore those facilities more for he want to make sure they are doing the right thing. So, he gathered e.b. members on urgent meeting this morning. I was involved via video conference. He told them about those houses, showed them brochures and ask them if they agree to financially help them after getting more intel. Everyone agreed. Each house will get a 2000 Euros monthly during one year period after which we will evaluate our support. If we can, we’ll support them more, if can’t, we’ll support them less depending about our profit. After talking to the director and informing him about good news, he told him that he’s sending his associates, our lawyer and Vinko right after the meeting who will collect more intel and see that everything is correct and fair in those facilities. He also told him that he wants to stay anonymous, but if he wants to give a public credit, he should give it to the Hotel. So, my Prince received positive report from them this afternoon. Our lawyer and Fran will meet with director in Monday and sign agreement about one year financial support for now.
My Prince has golden heart. What impresses me is that he didn’t even think to sell consoles, games and computer or keep it to himself, but he had in mind to donate it to the orphanage from the start. I’m deeply convinced too that if e.b. rejected his proposal to support senior houses, he will do it from his own pocket. The sum will be much lesser, but he’ll do his best. Yes, my dear readers, that’s my Prince; He might not like animals, but he certainly loves people and he’ll do everything in his power to help them. When he sees the need, he act fast. He knows not about empty promises. Now you know why people likes him and why my Ivy and I crazy about him.
