Ashley sent Francis away to get ice creams for them. Finally, she had some alone time with Ellie.

She felt guilty that she had even tried to help Francis win her best friend's heart in the past.

Looking at Ellie, Ashley decided to ask her how she felt about Francis. "Ellie, what do you think of Francis?"

Ashley's hesitation drew a smile on Ellie's face. She replied, "Why do you ask that?"

Not getting a direct answer, Ashley decided to get to the point. She asked, "Do you have feelings for him?"

Her question almost made Ellie choke on her coffee. She didn't understand what made Ashley think that. She gave her a quizzical look.

However, Ashley misunderstood her. She assumed that Ellie had feelings for him.

She didn't pause to think, and just blurted out, "Ellie, please hear me out! Francis is a playboy! So, you should stay away from him!" Ashley was shaking her head frantically.

Ellie responded, "I don't have feelings for him. You are being so weird. You tried to hook us up not long ago. What made you change your mind?"

"Okay, it's a good thing that you don't like him!" Ashley said, feeling a little relieved.

She made a face and stuck out her tongue at Ellie before continuing, "I'm not weird! I just didn't know what kind of a person he was in the past. And now, I do! He is the worst kind!"

Ellie smiled and didn't respond.

Deep down, she knew she would never fall in love with any man.

Taking a deep breath, she changed the topic. "All right, is there anything else you want to tell me?"

Ashley suddenly remembered why she had asked Ellie out.

"Thank God you reminded me. I almost forgot to tell you! I took up a job in Andrew's company. I might not have enough time to come to the bakery. I'm afraid you have to take on some of my work there," Ashley said.

Ellie was surprised to hear of this sudden development, but her gut told her it was long coming. "Why did you suddenly decide to work at his company?"

From what Ellie knew about Andrew, he was a man who liked to be in control of everything. It was obvious that he would definitely persuade Ashley to work in his company sooner or later, but she didn't think it would happen so soon.

Ashley was leaning on the table, thinking how to respond.

'Hmm... Should I tell her the truth? Should I tell her that I was worried about his health and his business,

this was the best deal she could get. So, she agreed.

Edmund suddenly realized how much his daughter liked Ellie.

Thinking about what Ellie had said to her, his eyes lit up. He had to admit that he wanted to see Ellie almost as much as his daughter did.

They heard the sound of heels clicking on the floor.

As she approached her apartment, Ellie took her key out. When she looked up, she saw Edmund and Elain standing in front of her door.

Ellie didn't recognize them at first.

Hearing the sound, Elain immediately spun around. Seeing Ellie, she ran to her right away.

"Ellie! You are finally home!" she yelled gleefully.

Her voice was sweet and innocent. No one could resist a cutie like her.

Fortunately, the little girl didn't weigh much. Ellie lost her balance a bit, but they didn't fall.

Holding Elain in her arms, Ellie asked, "How come you are here?"

Edmund had tried to stop Elain when she ran to Ellie, but the feisty little girl was faster than her father. All he could do was watch the scene sheepishly.

Seeing Ellie almost losing her balance, he couldn't help but worry about the both of them.

Elain, who had her little arms around Ellie's neck, answered, "Because I miss you! So, I asked daddy to take me to see you. Where were you, Ellie? I called you, but you didn't answer my phone."

Ellie took her phone out. It was on silent. She must have put it on silent while she was shopping with Ashley.

Ellie rubbed Elain's head playfully and apologized, "I am sorry, baby girl. My phone was on silent, so I didn't hear your call."
