Novel When His Eyes Opened Chapter 2979 By verygoodnovel-On the other side of the phone, Joanna’s mother immediately laughed: “I played poker with your mother! I didn’t expect you and Joanna to meet here! How nice!”
After listening to her mother’s words, the relationship between Joanna and Ellis suddenly became much closer.
The two went to the restaurant Ellis mentioned.
Ellis took the initiative to order a few signature dishes from the menu, and then handed the menu to Joanna: “You can order whatever you want, my salary is quite high, you don’t have to save money for me.”
Joanna saw that the dishes he ordered were enough for two people, so she didn’t order any more.
“Even if the salary is high, you have to save some money. Do you still want to go back to that small county and settle down?” Joanna hoped that he would get better and better in the future, “I don’t want to go back anyway. My goal now is to make money and settle here.”
“You are amazing! You opened your own shop and became your own boss at such a young age. And you also developed my boss into your client, which is amazing.” Ellis praised sincerely.
Joanna: “Ellis, don’t make fun of me. I’m just lucky. My friend invested money in that dessert shop and asked me to take care of it.”
Ellis: “Then you are also very good. Really, sometimes when I am tired from working overtime, I envy the kind of people who are their own bosses.”
“Then you didn’t see me working overtime in the dessert shop. If you want to do things well, whether it’s a part-time job or a boss, it will be very tiring.” Joanna said here,” For example, your boss Hayden, he must not going anywhere easily.”
“That’s right. But at his level, I basically never meet him. I don’t know what he’s busy with every day.” Ellis felt powerless when he said this.
In this life, he would never be as good as Hayden.
“Joanna, as you can see, I don’t have a girlfriend, and neither do you. Since we both from the same village, why don’t we try dating?” Ellis cut to the chase, “Your mother and I know each other; you can ask your mother about the situation in my family. My parents own a small business in the county, and we have a good family life. I also have a married older sister. My situation is even more straightforward. When I was in college, I had a girlfriend. We later split up due to graduation. I’ve never been in a loving relationship. I’m of marriageable age now, but I’ve never met someone who’s right for me.
The main reason is that my hometown is a small place, and women who are a little better don’t look down on me.”
Ellis was very sincere.
Joanna was so embarrassed to refuse directly.
“Ellis, why don’t you wait? You have good looks, a good job, and a good salary. Finding a compatible partner will be simple once you purchase a home here.” Joanna suggested to him .
“Are you looking down on me? Is it because my conditions are not good enough for you?” Ellis was a little bit shocked.
“No, no. My situation is more complicated. I don’t know how to tell you. You are not unworthy of me. You are really good. Don’t feel inferior.” Joanna explained with a blushing face.
“Your situation is very complicated?” Ellis didn’t know what this sentence meant, “What’s your situation? You should have graduated from university not long ago, right?”
“Well… Ellis, we are fellow villagers, so I won’t hide it from you, but I hope you don’t tell others about it.” Joanna wanted to reject Ellis without hurting him, so she could only say her own reasons, “Ellis, I have given birth to a child.”
Seeing that Ellis was stunned, Joanna took a teapot and poured Ellis a glass of water.
Ellis quickly came to his senses.
Ellis: “You never married, did you?”
“Oh, that’s okay.” Ellis breathed a sigh of relief, “You broke up with the man?”
“Forget it!” Joanna said, “I don’t think about getting married for the time being, I just want to do a good job in the dessert shop business.”
“I understand. You are emotionally hurt, so you definitely don’t trust men anymore.” Ellis looked at Joanna’s pretty face, “Joanna, I don’t really mind your past.”
