Chapter 31 Silent Love

Abbott is such a great nutritionist that Zhan family's person is very extraordinary.

"Wonton and steamed stuffed buns, please." Ashley thought for a while and said.

"Got it." As Abbott spoke, he took out the wonton and steamed buns from the fridge and put steamed
buns into the steamer. Another put the wonton into a pot of boiled water.

"Abbott, do you know where the others are?"

"Bradley is out shopping. Young master is having a class. I don't know where Mr. Jasper is. He's not
home anyway."

Ashley raised her hand and took a look at her watch. It was just half past seven. She asked, "when will
Nelson get up since he has to go to school so early?"

"They both got up at six and have breakfast at seven. Young master just left."

Getting up at six o'clock...

"I will wait for you in the dining room." Ashley was embarrassed.

After having breakfast, Ashley didn't know what to do for a moment, so she wore a wide bland hat and
planned to walk and digest.

The sun in July was very poisonous even in the morning. Ashley was almost baked after she walked for
a while. There was a greenhouse about a hundred meters on the east side of the villa. Ashley planned
to go into the greenhouse and hide herself.

However, this decision was not a decision as good as one walking the grass.

The greenhouse was all transparent. And because it was summer, when all creatures grew, the
greenhouse was almost completely open, and the temperature inside was the same as the outside.
The only good thing about it was that it could be a little gloomy.

The greenhouse was full of flowers and green plants, which were different from the place she had been
to. All the plants here were on the ground, not in the flowerpots. Earth rose and fell as well. It was a
path led by earth and soil, just like walking in the mountains.

Ashley went to the end of the greenhouse and saw a huge golden sunflower which was as tall as a

Here were so many sunflowers.

"Miss. Ashley, do you also like sunflowers?"

Ashley turned around and saw a young man standing behind her. From his dressing, she guessed that
he was a gardener.

"Sunflowers are very similar to the sun. I believe the people who likes glorious also like sunflowers.

"Mr. Jasper have said the same words." The young gardener patted the soil on his body. "But the flower
language of the sunflower is not very good. I don't like them."

"The flower language of sunflower?"

"The sunflowers have been living in the sun, so they are regarded as a flower that symbolizes loyalty,
tenacity and endless love. However, it had never had a chance to express its love for her, so the flower
language was: silent love. "

Hearing the result, Ashley felt sad for no reason.

"There are so many accidents in the world. It's hard to get married with some lovers. So most people
who are going to get married are ruthless in the end. If you really want to spend the rest of your life with
someone, don't hold it back. If you let it go, you will never get it back. After all, everyone lives the rest
of his life. Does he really want to be with you in next life? "

After the gardener finished his talk, he took an iron and went to deal with the flowers. Looking at the
sea of sunflowers in front of her, Ashley was speechless for a long time.

After two beeps, Ashley unlocked the phone and it was a message from Francis.

Are you free tonight?

Ashley's heart suddenly began to beat wildly, after a long silence, she replied in a trembling voice:


See you at Crystal Palace at 8 o'clock tonight?


After putting her phone back, Ashley stroked the big leaf of the sunflower and wondered, 'is this Francis
a unfaithful man or the man I have missed accidentally?'

At half past seven, Ashley sat on the side of the pond at Crystal Palace. The waiters there already
recognized her and asked her if she needed another Longjing before the rain.

Ashley nodded.

She had an appointment and never was late. Ashley had never been late for any appointment, no
matter her girlfriend or friends. Francis was never late too, he used to coming here ten minutes early.

When it was 7:50, Francis walked to the table from the glass.

It was getting dark and the lotus on the ground couldn't be seen clearly. Ashley watched that man
walking closer and closer, but she didn't turn back.

"You came so early," Francis looked at the shadow in the glass and said.

"Well, I don't have anything else to do today, so I came earlier." Looking back at him with a smile,
Ashley poured a cup of new tea for him and said, "sit down."

A waiter came in and they ordered all kinds of food. Then Francis started to talk about business.

"I heard from Sheila that you have signed a contract with Shengshi. In fact, you should have been in
this circle long ago. You are very talented as an actress."

"Who can tell? Perhaps this is the best time?" Ashley smiled.

"You are the best philosophical. Let's drop it." "I have something important to tell you," Francis
continued with a smile.

This was how Francis used to be, gentle and modest. From his change now, she was sure that he
believed her explanation before.

"Guantang Group are going to work with Hanfu Films together to shoot a drama. I have talked to Dylan
from Hanfu Films yesterday. You can have a try on the heroine."

"Dylan mentioned the general plan to me yesterday. I think we can have a try. I'll find an opportunity to
talk to the upper leaders of Shengshi."

"That's right. Dylan is chasing you. No wonder he agreed so quickly yesterday."

Ashley really wanted to clarify her relationship with Dylan. She opened her mouth but didn't know how
to say. In the end, she could only deny in pale, "he didn't chase me."

"No matter what, Dylan is not reliable. He completely takes love as a drama, and likes to see others
make a fool of themselves most. You'd better not get too close to him."

Later, they chatted while eating. They told each other what had happened in these years, Francis said
his job and Ashely said her career as a graduate. Since their divorce, it was the first time that they had
a meal and talked to each other in such a harmonious manner.

At ten o'clock in the evening, the two of them left Crystal Palace together.

The heat in the day was slightly lighter by the night wind, and it was easier to say something in the
dark. Before leaving, standing next to Francis, Ashley said, "I hope I can see you often in the future."

Francis's heart skipped a beat. "Of course we will," he replied.

That was the limit of what Ashley said. She thought Francis would understand her. No matter to make
up the plan of compound Sheila or to prove whether Francis was her Mr. right. She must try her best to
take the next step.

As for the future, whether she would really get Francis back or not, it depended on her heart, where
would she go in the future.

Francis offered to drive Ashley back home in a gentle manner, but Ashley refused his invitation
because she didn't want him to know that she lived at Zhan family's house.

After Francis drove away, she took a taxi back to the villa.

When she came back, it was already past eleven o'clock. The bodyguards at the gate saw that she
was back. One of them sent her back to the villa.

The lights in the villa were all off except for the lights on both sides of the stairs and the rest of the
buildings were all buried in darkness.

In the light of the stairs, Ashley went to the kitchen and poured herself a glass of water.

When she came out of the kitchen, she seemed to hear the breathing of the dining room. Maybe it was
because of the silence around her.

Ashley was scared to death!

That was the human nature. Even if one was frightened, she still wanted to look back at the frightening
thing and see what it was. After calming down, Ashley slowly turned around and saw a light bulb on the
end of the dining table.

A cigarette?

Who could even sit here smoking at this time? Ashely couldn't think of anyone else who could do this.

"Jasper?" She called tentatively.

The cigarette in the end of the table moved. "It's me."

Ashley was relieved.

"Why are you still up so late?" Didn't he get up at six o'clock? Then he must go to sleep at 11 o'clock at
the latest to get enough sleep.

Jasper did not reply.

With a glass of water in her hand, Ashley walked over and sat on the table next to Jasper. Now she had
adapted to the light and could see the outline of Jasper indistinctly. She noticed that there were several
cigarette butts in the ashtray on the dining table.

"Do you have anything on your mind?"

"No, I'm just bored." The man's voice sounded somewhat lazy.

"Boring?" He was so busy every day that he still felt bored.

"Yes." Not wanting to say anything more, Jasper asked, "why do you come back so late?"

"I had dinner with a friend."

Jasper took another drag on his cigarette. "Now you can do whatever you want. It's good for you to
hang out with your friends. Once you become famous, it's impossible for you to go shopping at your
free will."

Although the big boss said Ashely would be famous, she couldn't help asking him, "how do you know I
will be famous?"

With a cigarette in his hand, Jasper turned his head to look at her. "If you're in my hand, you can do it."

Although it was very dark, his gaze fell on her body, which made Ashley's heart beat faster. She
changed the topic, "do you like sunflowers very much? I saw the greenhouse was planted two or three
acres. "

"Yes, I do."


"No reason." As Jasper took a drag on his cigarette, he didn't want to dwell on this subject.

Ashley sensed that Jasper wasn't in a good mood. 'It's not happy or unhappy, perhaps just like he said
he was boring, he don't want to talk much, ' Ashley analyzed.

Ashley stood up obediently and said, "it's getting late. I'm going upstairs to sleep."

"Yes." Jasper nodded.

When she walked to the stairs with the glass of water in her hand, Ashley turned around again to see
the men who was sitting at the end of the table with the cigarette in his hand.

'Is it so boring? He has so many secrets, ' Ashely thought.
