My Baby’s Daddy Chapter 1709

Ellen knew that it was the latter, but she felt like she was dreaming and couldn’t believe it was real. “Did I scare you today?” Jared asked as he was done putting ointment on her wound.

Lost in thought, Ellen met his gaze and her heart skipped a beat. She wanted to shake her head but nodded instead. “A little bit.”

Jared stood up and caressed her head. “I got angry at them, not you. Why were you so nervous?”

Ellen didn’t dare say that he looked really scary when he got angry! “Don’t wander around and rest well in the office.” Jared finished his sentence and took the medicine box with him as he left.

Shortly after, Ellen’s phone rang. It was Connor, so she answered, “Hello! Uncle Connor!” “Ellie, it’s my birthday this Saturday and I want to have a big party. You have to come.”

“Okay, I will be there.” Ellen couldn’t refuse because her uncle was the closest person to her in the world.

The following week, Ellen went to work every morning and attended driving school every afternoon. She felt fulfilled, especially during her thrilling driving lessons that had her nerves stretched tight. She could see that Jared was also busy, he was either attending meetings or en route to one.

Occasionally, she saw him talking in the corridor with the company’s high-level executives as if they were solving a big problem. So, she tried not to disturb him.

Early Thursday morning, Ellen’s bank account was credited with her salary from last month, which totaled around 82,000. She was puzzled when she saw the amount on her company card. Why was the amount so high? It was her first month’s salary, and there were even decimals. This meant that the finance department had calculated her salary accurately!

Ellen suddenly began to wonder what the purpose of her job was. What she had done was to make a few cups of coffee for Jared, goof off, read books, and study for her driver’s license. Yet, he still paid her such a high salary. To be honest, she felt a little guilty for accepting the salary.

Soon, it was Friday and the week was about to end. When Ellen left work, she intentionally left late. At that time, Jared was still in a meeting. Even though her heart ached for him, she didn’t know how to cheer him up. She thought for a moment and wrote a note. After completing it, she sneaked into his office and stuck the note on the corner of his computer screen.

After sticking the note, she left. At 7.30PM, Jared, who was a bit tired, left the meeting room and returned to his office. He was in a bad mood, but when he sat down on his chair, he suddenly noticed a heart-shaped note.

In his solemn office, it was rare to see something so girly. He took it down and read the words written on it. His furrowed brows finally relaxed, and a smile appeared on his lips.

President Presgrave, I wanted to check on you these past few days, but I didn’t want to disturb you. So, I can only offer you words of encouragement. I wish you happiness and good health. Remember to take a break! Your assistant, Ellen.’

Jared also realized with regret that he had neglected her lately, so he picked up his phone and dialed her number.

At that moment, Ellen was on her way home in a cab. When she heard her phone ringing, she picked it up and her heart skipped a beat. It was from Jared. Did he see the note I left?

Ellen regretted her actions and felt that it was too childish. “Hello, President Presgrave! Have you finished your meeting?”

“Rather than writing me a note to show your concern, it’s better if you accompany me for a meal.”

“Ah! But I’ve already taken a cab home.” “Then wait for me at your doorstep. I’ll be right there.” The man on the other end of the line sounded bossy.

Nevertheless, Ellen’s heart felt sweet as she replied, “I haven’t gone far. I’ll wait for you at the mall.” “Okay,” the man said.

Soon, Ellen got off the cab and waited for him in a conspicuous location. Sure enough, in less than 10 minutes, the man’s sports car came into view. It was very eye-catching among the other cars.

Then, Ellen opened the car door and got in. Inside, the man wore a simple white shirt, looking both charming and enigmatic. This man made her think of a phrase, ‘The simpler, the more luxurious’.
