Five o'clock is the end of the shift.
Ella was packing up her paperwork and was about to go home when a head popped into her room and spoke. "Ella, the boss wants to see you."
"Yes." Ella raised her head and replied. Then she mumbled to herself. 'Time is up, what does the boss want to see me for?'
Her heart was filled with uneasiness. But she still got up from her chair, grabbed her bag, and went to her boss's room Mr. John.
Ella's boss is a fat man. It is rumored that he is lustful, flirting with young girls even though he is married. Ella was among the young girls. She was repeatedly beaten by Mr. John's harassment, but the cases of harassment are mild. Working at a company whose boss is a pervert, would rather quit. But Ella desperately needs a steady job. If she quits her job, who will take care of her often sick father? Therefore, Ella gritted her teeth and endured, turning a blind eye to everything.
The clattering of clogs in the hallway. Ella thought as she walked. 'After all, what does the boss want to see me about?' She paused and reassured herself. 'It's okay. Don't think too much. It's probably about the Blue Heaven project I'm in charge of.'
Arriving at the door of Mr. John, Ella took a deep breath and then raised her hand and knocked three times on the door.
"Come in." Voices came from within the room.
Ella opened the door. "Boss, is something wrong?"
Mr. John stepped back and took Ella by the hand and went inside the room and closed the door.
Ella looked at the closed door, a little scared but still calm. "What's the matter, sir?"
"Don't call me boss when it's over. Let's sit down and talk for a while." Mr. John grins.
"If it's not important, I'll go home." Ella had just turned her back when an arm grabbed her.
"Don't rush. It's still early." Mr. John deliberately said roundabouts, buying time.
He stroked the back of Ella's hand. Feeling a little ticklish, she withdrew her hand.
"Boss, be proud."
Mr. John thought Ella was a difficult girl to convince, but he liked her even more. He is not in a hurry but slowly flirts with his prey.
"Project Green Paradise, how are you preparing? Do you need my help?" Mr. John thinks he needs to be a little nicer before his prey falls into the trap.
"No need. I'm done. I'll email you shortly after I get home." Ella said sternly.
"So I invite you to dine with me tonight, okay?" Mr. John suggested.
"Sorry, I'm busy." Ella makes excuses.
"You always say you're busy. Aren't you going to have dinner?"
"I'll eat at home with my father." Ella lost her patience. She looked at her watch, desperately wanting to get out of here.
"Just eat with me once. If you make me happy, I'll give you a raise."
Ell begins to realize the evil intentions of Mr. John, but she refused. "I will work hard and get the salary I deserve. I don't need a raise just to make people happy."
Ella said fiercely and walked towards the door. Mr. John walked over and hugged her tightly from behind. Ella struggled and struggled and screamed. But unfortunately for her, all the employees in the company have already left. Mr. John told them to leave early but didn't tell Ella. The more she resisted, Mr. John was more than pleased. His arms tightened and he tried to kiss Ella.
The door suddenly opened with great force. An angry, flashy woman entered. It was the wife of Mr. John.
Seeing someone appear to destroy their space, both Mr. John and Ella both turned their heads to look at the woman. Mr. John loosened his grip. Ella took the opportunity to push him away. She fixes her clothes and hair.
The woman slapped Ella hard on the cheek. Her mouth was bleeding.
"Slut, you dare seduce my husband?"
"I don't..." Ella didn't finish her sentence when Mr.'s wife. John grabbed his hair and dusted him.
Mr. John just watched at first, but when he saw his wife hit harder and harder, he tried to stop him.
The woman rolled her eyes at Mr. John. "Fired her immediately." Do not let Mr. John reacts, she turns to Ella, warning. "Starting tomorrow, you can't come to the company. If I see your face tomorrow, I'll kill you."
Ella hugged the side of her blood-red face and ran out. She walked down the quiet hallway, sniffling. She just wants to work in peace, is that difficult?
The phone in Ella's bag rang. She opened it and saw it was a strange number, but she answered anyway. "Hi."
"Are you a relative of Mr. Stephen?" A girl's voice came through the phone.
"Yes. That's my father. Is something wrong?" Ella asked impatiently.
"I called from hospital xxx, Mr. Stephen was in a traffic accident, the situation is very critical. He is being treated at our hospital..."
The nurse didn't finish her sentence, Ella saw her legs running like flying to the hospital xxx. Moments later she showed up in the emergency department.
She asked the nurse at the counter about the room number her father was staying in.
The nurse said Ella's father was in room 222, she immediately went there. Ella stood outside the door of room 222 and looked inside. Mr. Stephen was lying on the bed, his face covered with wounds, his shirt bloody, the situation seemed serious. The mouth, nose, and hands are covered with tubes of oxygen. Ella burst into tears, she prayed to God for her father's peace. Ella's high-pitched cry caught the attention of a man dressed in patient clothes. He was standing next to Ella calling someone but Ella didn't notice him.
The emergency room door opened. A female doctor asked Ella. "Are you the patient's family member?"
"Yes." Ella replied. "How is my father? Is the injury serious?"
The female doctor hesitated. Her face wrinkled slightly. Seeing that expression, Ella had a premonition that something bad had happened to her father.
"There is a blood clot in Mr. Stephen's brain, we need to perform surgery or it will endanger his life. Given your father's age, delaying surgery will be very dangerous. , possibly... death." The female doctor answered after a few seconds of hesitation.
"So how much does the surgery cost?" Ella asked, voice nervous.
"Thirty thousand dollars."
Ella was stunned to hear the cost of Mr. Stephen. What does she do with such a large amount of money?
"How long is the deadline?" Ella asked shivering."From now until tomorrow morning but you should have the money as soon as possible."In such a short time, where did she make thirty thousand dollars? She was recently fired by Mr.'s wife. John, so she couldn't get a salary.The female doctor looked at Ella's expression, she showed sympathy. "I'm sorry I can't help you. You can borrow money from a friend or a bank."Ella nodded to the female doctor and walked out of the hospital campus, sitting down on a stone bench, thinking.Loan?Ella doesn't have many friends. Most of them are social network friends, she doesn't have a trusted friend who can lend her money.Wait, Ella suddenly remembered she had a best friend named Suzy. But Suzy's family is not well off. She also has to work hard to earn money. She doesn't have enough money to lend Ella.As for the bank, they will ask what Ella does. If she says she's quit her job and is unemployed, will the bank give her a loan?Ella feels tired.
Seeing Ella hesitate, David continued. "If you keep thinking about it, I'm afraid your father's life will not last.""But... we're going to sleep together? And... you know... how could I... I haven't even held hands..." Ella stammered. Her face turned red when she thought about it.David understood what Ella meant, he reassured him. "Don't worry. We won't overdo it. But we need to be a little bit intimate in public after that, you can do whatever you want as long as you don't let the reporters see. about sleeping together, we're in the same room but we'll sleep in two different places. I promise I won't do anything to you."Ella was relieved to hear David say the last sentence. And then..."But if you want, I'm ready." David grinned."You dare?" Ella rolled her eyes at David."I was just joking. So you agree?" David asked firmly.Ella hesitated for a moment. Apart from David's scheme, she couldn't think of a better way. Just acting a fake husband and wife play, no loss, no one harms a
A few minutes later, the car stopped in front of a large mansion. The entrance is cobblestone. Colorful flowers surround the walls. While David pulled the car into the garage, Ella stood watching the mansion. She had never seen a house as beautiful as David's. To the right is the swimming pool. On the left is a long road, planted with many trees. A feeling of suspense welled up in her heart. After a while, they asked, and she knew how to answer.David stepped forward and grabbed Ella's hand, startling her. "Hey, friend. How dare you?" She was angry, she said."You forget we're acting as husband and wife. It's normal for a husband to hold his wife's hand."Ella reluctantly rested her hand in David's large palm. Her face seemed stiff.David raised his voice. "You should be relaxed, natural, comfortable. Your expression will make people suspicious."Hearing his explanation, Ella took a deep breath, changing her expression. She smiled lovingly at David. Then the two of them entered the co
Looking at David's stern face, Ella believed he was telling the truth. A man who does not casually go to bed with anyone does not have sex unless he is married. Ella thought that if any girl became David's wife, she would be very lucky."Tomorrow I'll drive you to the hospital so you can visit your father, then go home to get some clothes. I'll ask Key to deliver your luggage to my house." Wherever David said, Ella nodded. Suddenly remembering something, she asked. "What about you telling me that I'm an employee in your company. You lied like that, what should I do?"David calmly said. "Make the lie true. I need a secretary, please be my secretary.""Really? Will I get a job?""I don't say two words."Ella changed the subject. "Your mother is a bit difficult, she doesn't seem to like me. But Rika is very cute.""Be patient. After a while, she will accept you, as long as you do everything you can." David looked at her with a serious face."I can walk around the house freely, okay?" El
Ella opened the door of Mr. Stephen and gently entered. Still, the sound of her footsteps woke him up."Ella, you're here." Mr. Stephen said, sitting up."Dad, how are you?" Ella walked over and sat on the edge of the bed."I'm fine. I'm sorry to make you worry.""Dad don't say that, taking care of you is my duty."“I am your burden, right?” Mr. Stephen patted Ella's hand, his voice a little sad."No. I am lucky to be your daughter.”Ella's phone rang. She took out her phone and looked at it softly. "I'm out on the phone for a while, I'll be back soon." She said and walked out of the room."Wazzup? We just said goodbye for a few minutes.” Ella said politely. Although she is not the daughter of a noble family, she was raised from a young age to be polite when talking to others."I just wanted to say if you need anything, just tell me, I'm here to help." David said, he just arrived at the company."Thank. But the money you gave me was enough for me to take care of everything.” Ella said
David didn't care about the eyes around him, he took Ella's hand and led him to a quiet, luxury room. Ella was overwhelmed when she saw the menu. The food is very expensive, even more, expensive than the salary she gets for a month.Looking at her expression, David understood what she was worried about. He lowered his voice. "Never mind the price. I'll be the one to pay."Ella chooses the cheapest item on the menu. Wait for the waiter to leave, she said. "This is not a matter of who pays, but a matter of savings. Just a breakfast for a few hundred thousand, I feel a bit wasteful. Next time I will take you to a popular restaurant with reasonable prices. The quality is not inferior to the dishes in the restaurant." "You intrigued me. I'd love to know where that is." David smiled as he spoke."I will lead you to the future." Ella said.The waiters bring the food. They ate and talked.After eating, they went to the company. Today is Ella's first day working at D&A corporation. She could
"Hi, nice to meet you." Ella tries to act like a friendly person. She doesn't have many friends except for Suzy, she lives a closed life so she communicates badly while talking."Ella, how did you meet my brother?" Rika asked, blinking excitedly."We ran into each other in the hospital. After that, we kept in touch until we decided to get married later." This is true, Ella didn't lie.Rika was dumbfounded when she heard what Ella said. The story of Ella and David's meeting was too bland. How did they decide to get married when there was no romance between them?"It's strange. My brother is dry and rigid, what is attractive about him? Handsome or rich?" Rika asked and looked at Ella's reaction."He's very good, knows how to help others." Ella said what she had in mind. Even though the two of them are just contracted husband and wife, she is still grateful to David for saving her father. This is a partnership where both sides benefit. Even though he's in the same room, he doesn't touch
The next morning, Ella woke up to a bright ray of sunlight from the balcony shining into her eyes.She turned her head to look to the left, the pillow was empty. She suddenly remembered that today was Sunday, the staff was off, but David had an important client meeting so he went to work early in the morning.Ella got out of bed and went to the bathroom. Naughty in the water, she brought her hand to her lips. David's kiss was still lingering around her lips.After showering, Ella sat on the bed texting David. 'Today is off, what should I do?'After a while, the phone screen lit up. David sent a reply message. 'Please do what you want.'She replied immediately. “Okay.”She picked up her bag and walked out of the room. She had just left, Sophie opened the door and removed the camera, and went to Mrs. Emma. She opened it and with Mrs. Emma pinched her head to watch.After watching the video, Mrs. Emma and Sophie looked at each other.“They actually slept together. That means they truly l
