The sight of Lesley sitting down was the first thing that entered her field of vision.

She was holding a cup of coffee, seemingly lost in thought as she looked out the window. Even Ashley's entry remained unnoticed.

Without saying a word, Ashley sat down opposite her.

It was the exact same seat that Shirley had just occupied.

Ashley's cold voice broke the silence between them. "If you have something to say, just say it. Not everyone has as much free time as you," she said, fixing her eyes on the woman across her.

Finally, Lesley turned and met her gaze with an icy glare of her own. "Why? Is Duncan keeping you busy these days?" she asked, one eyebrow arched mockingly.

"I don't know what you are talking about."

Lesley's lips curled into a malicious smile. "Really now? You've been living in his house for some time now. And we all know what happens when a man and a woman are under the same roof," she said. "What a perfect timing. Andrew is gone on a business trip and poor, lonely, Ashley seeks another man's embrace. You already have another man, so why do you keep on clinging to Andrew? Just what is it exactly that you want?

String them along and have your way with both of them? I never imagined you to be that kind of woman."

Lesley spoke in a calm, almost bored voice, but her words screamed of accusations.

Ashley's hands had tightened into fists at her sides, her knuckles white with restraint. A sudden desire to slap this woman came over her. She had crossed line.

Yet, Ashley held herself back against her impulse. "You seem to be very interested in what's going on in my life. With how much you know, it almost seems that you're involved in this situation yourself," she hissed.

Lesley did not even bother feigning denial.

"I'll answer your questions. Yes, I'm staying at Duncan's house. Because I was forced out of my house and my own company. Would that sound familiar to you, Lesley?" she said, her voice rough with contempt.

"Oh, but you weren't forced," Lesley quipped. "You went to Duncan's house willingly all by yourself. Had you grown tired of living in the same place so you tried something new?" Lesley taunted.

"Now I am curious. How is Duncan? Is he gentle with you?"

Ashley's eyes burned with rage as she looked at Lesley. Anger ran white-hot in her veins. "I am under no obligation to report my life to you," she spat.

Lesley nodded and

plans.

Almost at the same time when Ashley got out of the car, her cell phone rang.

Amaia was calling.

The moment Ashley answered, Amaia's evidently excited voice rushed to her. "Ashley, Ashley, you can come back to work tomorrow!"

She was speaking so quickly that Ashley almost didn't understand her words.

Ashley walked into the villa and answered, "Yes, I know. Didn't I tell you? Like I said, I'll be back in a few days."

"Hey, you. Tell me the truth. Are you with some rich man now? How come I don't know about it?" Amaia asked.

Ashley was speechless for a moment before a laugh came from her. "Yes, I am with you. You're my rich friend, right?"

"Stop talking nonsense. Seriously, this is all so strange. First you get fired. And now you're coming back with no reason. What is going on?"

Ashley bit her lip as she considered her answer. She knew that Amaia was genuinely worried about her, but she didn't know where to start explaining. "It's complicated," she sighed into her phone. "I can't explain it to you right now. It's going to be a long story. How about I just tell you when I go back to work?"

"Then, you must come to the office tomorrow," Amaia said.

Ashley thought for a while. There was something else she had to do tomorrow.

"I can't yet. I have something to deal with tomorrow. Can you help me ask for a leave?"

"Ashley!" Amaia's voice erupted. "Are you playing around outside these days? You must be very happy. Now you don't even want to come back to work? Who are you with and what have you done these days? You have changed a lot..." Amaia complained.
