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 couldn't help but feel nervous and stressed.
As David and Ella entered the main hall, reporters rushed in, pointed cameras at the two of them, and asked a series of questions.
I don't know who spread the news, information about David's marriage spread, creating a huge wave, even on social networking forums, there were articles on this topic. That created a shock in the whole city X. However, they did not know this marriage was just a contract.
To David, this was nothing new. He's used to being surrounded by reporters. But with Ella it was different, she was just an ordinary and overshadowed girl. She was a little scared when dozens of cameras were pointed at her. David squeezed her hand, which calmed her down a bit.
"I heard you registered your marriage, so this girl is your wife?"
"When are you holding the wedding ceremony?"
"I thought you'd marry the rich lady Jenny or the movie actress Sita. This girl... we've never met."
"Is this... is this the type of person you want to marry?"
David was serious. "If you already know, why ask me? Who am I married to, rich or poor, beautiful or ugly, that's my business? It has nothing to do with you."
Only a brief answer from David quelled reporters' questions. They could only stare blankly at him and Ella walking away. But they still don't give up easily, because this is their job. They make a living selling celebrity news to newsrooms. David is one of the most influential celebrities in the business world. The fact that he is married is a piece of valuable news. Although they did not know the authenticity of the story, they still wrote the article, in their mind.
As David and Ella stepped out of the elevator, they heard a male voice. "Hello, David. You got married quietly without telling me."
David and Ella turned their heads. A neatly dressed man approached them.
"Because it was too urgent, I didn't tell you." David smiled wryly.
The man looked at Ella passionately, reaching out his hand to shake hands with her. "Hi, I'm Raymond, director of human resources. Nice to meet you."
Ella shook his hand, speaking in a polite voice. "Hello. My name is Ella."
Raymon looked at Ella longingly. She was slightly annoyed and wanted to pull her hand away but couldn't.
David covered his mouth with his hand and coughed a few times.
Raymond woke up, letting go of Ella's hand. He said in an apologetic voice. "Sorry. If you need my help, I'm happy."
Ella just nodded, avoiding Raymond's gaze. Although Ella is a poor girl, she is also beautiful and cute. Raymond couldn't help but feel his heart flutter. With such a young and beautiful girl, it would be a waste to ignore it. He planned to flirt with Ella, no matter whether she was already a married woman.
But Raymond didn't get a chance to approach Ella because she was always with David.
More than half of the female employees in the company look at Ella with half their eyes, just because she is their boss's wife.
Ella's peaceful life is disturbed and she suddenly becomes famous thanks to the status of the billionaire's wife.
The news that David married an ordinary girl was published all over the newspapers and magazines. Of course, there are many conflicting opinions. Some people think it's David's private business, they shouldn't interfere. Others said that he was blind, so he chose a girl dressed in sleazy, country clothes. Others say Ella wants to be the daughter-in-law of Anthony's family with the purpose of taking over the fortune. Whatever the opinion, those comments affected Ella. She didn't know how to respond.
David encourages her. "Never mind what they say. After a while, things will sink in."
Sophie found out about Ella and told Mr. Emma knows. "Ella initially lived with her father in a run-down motel, but then they moved into a luxury apartment."
"What?" Mrs. Emma shouted. "How did she get the money to buy the apartment?"
"It's… Young Master David bought it for her." Sophie hesitated for a moment, then spoke.
Mrs. Emma went mad, her tone angry. "What a shame. Anthony's family is a prestigious family in the city X, yet David married a poor girl and even bought her an apartment. How could this happen?"
"I think... that's love." Sophie said sternly.
"David needs to marry a girl of social status."
"Okay, Emma." Mr. Harry suddenly spoke up. "They're married anyway, you should accept that instead of getting angry."
"Our family will lose face, father."
"It doesn't matter, as long as David and Ella truly love each other."
Mrs. Emma didn't say any more, but the look on her face showed that she was still displeased.
After dinner, the family went to the living room to eat dessert and chat. David and his father are discussing business matters. Mrs. Emma and Sophie talk about fashion between two women. Ella sat in a corner on the sofa, looking lonely. Rika came from behind. "Hi, I'm Rika. Since I was little, I've wanted an older sister, but my mother gave me an older brother."
"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
Ella to the largest luxury shopping center in the city. She walked around the mall. Her eyes blinked when she saw a price list at a clothing stall. Most of the items here cost more than five hundred dollars. She looked regretfully. She's not a fancy dress girl, so she just buys some cheap clothes. She just wears what she can afford and is comfortable with. Style doesn't matter to her. She did not forget to buy apple pie for Mr. Harry.At checkout, Ella had no change. She struggled to find change in her wallet. The people behind her urging her on made her even more confused.Suddenly, a hand landed on the counter at the cashier with a change of bills accompanied by a voice. "I pay for her."Ella turned her head to look. The one who helps her is Raymond.Leaving the counter, Ella said in an appreciative voice. "Thank you. It's too embarrassing to let you help me.""Nothing. We're colleagues after all." Raymond said with a smile on his lips."Yes."A reporter saw them and took a picture
After having dinner with the whole family, David and Ella asked permission to go back to their room.She sat on the sofa watching him do his work at the table. Then she opened the phone and made a schedule. Although she is David's secretary, her work is not much, she has a lot of free time, so she wants to do something to be active, such as learning to cook, learning the piano, practicing yoga or aerobics…David raised his head, his eyebrows raised when he saw Ella seem very focused on the phone. he asked softly. “What are you going to do, Ella?”Ella put the phone down on the table. “I need to do something for tomorrow. I need to exercise, my brain will go numb if I don't do anything every day." She spoke nonchalantly and reached for a document on David's desk.“Um.” David continues to work, he focuses on computers. Ella walked over and sat across from him.“Stop worrying. I will make a good wife who can be your support in the future.” Ella opened the document, going through the page
“Missing lady, you shouldn't do this kind of work. If Mr. Harry, I'll be in trouble." A maid said as she saw Ella stirring eggs in a bowl."It's okay, I can do it." Ella said, while the maid arranged the dishes and decorated the plates with salad.Ella made egg-fried rice for her and David. She garnished the rice with chili, carrots, sausage, and onions. She arranged it beautifully.With the other members, she makes hot dog toast with a recipe she made up herself. She put all the dishes on the table, just as everyone entered the dining room one by one.All the maids bowed in unison to them.As usual, Mr. Harry sat in the middle of the table. A maid who was also his close servant whispered something in his ear. After listening, Mr. Harry nodded, smiling at Ella. “Is it because you cooked breakfast?”“I only cooked a few dishes for me and David, because I don't know your tastes.” Ella politely replied.“Today I want to try the food you made.” Mr. Harry took a piece of hot dog and popped
At David's corporate building, he is busy with files and documents that need his signature.The phone screen suddenly lit up with a beep sound. He glanced over and picked it up. He reached out and stroked a straight line. Message from Maria. 'I'll be back tomorrow, nine in the morning. You remember to pick me up at the airport.'He exhaled and replied. 'Ok.'David continues to work but he is not focused. He thought of Ella and called her, but she didn't pick up. Because Ella's phone was in her bag while she was learning Samba dancing.So, David texted Ella. 'What are you doing?'Ella didn't know the phone was ringing and there was a message. She practiced hard. At five o'clock in the afternoon, she and Rika stopped practicing. They took a taxi back to the villa before dinner time at six o'clock.When she took her phone out of her bag, Ella realized that there were two missed calls and a text message from David.She dialed David's number.With just one ring, David answered the phone an
The next morning, when Ella woke up, David had already left the room. Maybe he's exercising or jogging around, as usual, she thought, taking her clothes to the bathroom.Today she made spaghetti and lemon tart for dessert. She learns from manuals and youtube clips.When Mr. Harry eats Spaghetti, his eyes light up. "It's delicious. Who did you make this from?”“I studied by myself, no one taught me. Once I made a living selling Spaghetti.” Ella replied in a nonchalant voice."Good. Hard-working. You are such a great role model for a wife.” Mr. Harry commented.“Now you don't sell these things anymore because you are married into a rich family. You must be very happy, aren't you?" Mrs. Emma said sarcastically while buttering the bread.Ella lowered her head, her hand stopped in midair.David, sitting next to him, spoke up. “She never took money from her husband, she always used the money she earned to shop. I hope you don't say things like that."“How do you know if she will use you in
Key stopped the car in front of the airport's entrance. There was a group of people screaming at the door, mostly teenagers. They took their phone to take pictures, and one of them took a video of what was happening inside the airport.Key pushed his way through the crowd to take a look. A girl in a pink off-the-shoulder dress with polka dots. Curly hair falls down her back. Her beautiful face and charming smile melt the hearts of many passionate boys. Her smooth, gentle movements make everyone fall in love.She is Maria. She walked in a leisurely manner. Her head held high, smug.Key stood in a corner to watch and shook his head. He had never felt fond of this girl. If David hadn't asked him to pick up Maria, he would probably be on a date with someone he likes by now. The more Key looked at Maria's arrogant attitude, the more depressed Key became, sighing.But this girl was the one his master ordered to pick up, he couldn't refuse. Although David never shows any loving feelings towa
