This is a work of fiction.

 


 

Reporter Kim : Good Morning Mr James…..Shall we begin ?

 

James : sure…

 

Reporter Kim : roll camera….. and….. here we go….

 

 

Kim cleared his throat and he looked at his list of prepared questions before looking up at me.

 

Kim : James… I understand that you run a training school….. to retrain….err…. air crew….. that lost their jobs due to the virus outbreak….

 

James : Yes… yes…. I do…

 

Kim : with so many company offering to retrain and reskill workers…. What makes your company so special… ?

 

James : hahha… there must be a reason why you are here right… ?

 

Kim : hahha… yes… but I’m sure our viewers would love to hear it from you….

 

I turned to look at the camera and I tried to remember my prepared answer.

 

James : A typical air stewardess with our national airline…. Can easily clock 5-6k a month with allowances and basic pay….and with the aviation industry in such state…. Most are making less than 1.5 – 2.2k a month now doing temp jobs…..

 

Kim : Yes… that is true….

 

James : Now…. my school is the only one that guarantees….. the trainees a job that is at least 6k in starting pay a month…. And this is excluding bonus….

 

Kim : That is the curious part for many of us James….. what kind of training do these…. Former air stewardess go through….that…allows them to command such a high price….. some people are accusing you of exploiting the financial situation of the girls and prostituting them out to clients…. Would you care to address that… ?

 

I nodded at the question before replying.

 

James : I am aware of the allegations out there… but…. It’s not true…..I train my girls in a special way… that makes sure they can satisfy the requirements of my clients….

 

Before Kim could ask another question, I added.

 

James : My clients are muti-millionaires…. Billionaires…if they wanted a sex worker…. A social escort…. Or even a movie starlet… ? it’s not a problem… they are already in that circle….. Procuring someone like that to satisfy their sexual needs…. Is difficult.

 

Kim : I see…. And the girls you train…

 

James : After their training…. They will be the personal assistant of my client…they are smart, beautiful, well spoken, confident…. And they are all equipped with skillsets that will make them always employable…..

 

Kim : Would you say the girls your trained…. Are primarily satisfying the sexual needs of your clients… ?

 

James : I disagree…. My girls will be the next best thing to having a wife….

 

I sat forward and looked at the camera.

 

James : Imagine having someone…. So aesthetically pleasing to look at when you wake up in the morning….someone that can attend to your every need…. Emotionally, mentally,… and yes of course… physically….all without a contractual obligation we call a marriage cert….. isn’t this something that everyone wants… ?

 

Kim smiled and said that there are times he wished he was born a millionaire.

 

Kim : do you think you can give us a tour….. of the training facility…. So we can see what the girls go through….?

 

James : of course… no cameras though…. There are already talks of competitors coming into the scene…. Hahah

 

Kim : hahha.. of course not….

 

I stood up and gestured to the door behind me.

 

Kim : So…. Who do you have waiting for us behind the door. ?

 

James : A 24 year old arts graduate, aircrew with the national airlines for about 1 year before she was retrenched….. young… pretty… eager to learn new things….

 

Kim : did she sign up for this training voluntarily ? …..

 

James : hahha…..

 

I paused and turned over to face Kim.

 

James : off the records…. No girls came her voluntarily….. They are all here because they can’t pay their debts to the bank…. And the bank sends them here to be….. reskilled….

 

Kim : ahhhhh…. I see…. So… we can expect to see….. a little resistance… ?

 

I smiled.

 

James : you’ll see….
