"Are you sure? So that's why he came to my office so fast that day when your grandmother came with that girl. Hmmm? Investigate carefully and find out what those two relationships really are. This is great... There's a possibility that I can use it against him at the next board meeting." President Hanada happily told Kai while Koji was just listening quietly to the two...
When the father and son's meeting was over, Koji quickly left and went to his room to think. He didn't join the conversation of his father and younger brother. The only reason he stuck around and participated because he found out that the topic was Miss Gusman.
He was not surprised to know that she's Tanaga's mistress. The only thing that bothers him is for Ashley because, for him, she deserves better than to be a toy for a billionaire like his cousin.
However, he did not know what to do, and how can he convince Ashley to leave his cousin?
He needed to think hard, make a plan, and implements accordingly. First, he would be friends Ashley without letting her know that he's also interested in her. Once he obtains Ashley's trust, and they become close to each other as a friend, he will then encourage her to leave Tanaga.
He smiled to himself as he imagined Ashley had left Tanaga, and in turn, they become an item... "Don't worry, Miss Gusman ... I will rescue you from my monster cousin. I'm not going to let him play and used you. You deserve to be respected and love... That's what I'll give to you when you choose me. "Koji promised to himself before shutting his eyes to dream of Ashley Gusman.
Meanwhile, Ashley was so tired from running around THJ Headquarters all day, therefore, when she and Tiny arrived at the condo, she went straight to the master bedroom and took a shower so she could feel better.
While she was taking a shower, Butler Ruffy and Inday arrived. Inday already knows what to do; therefore, butler Ruffy didn't need to tell her anything. She quickly prepares the food and put it in a tray to take it to the room.
Butler Ruffy knocked on the room to give Ashley the suit he had brought for her. But when she didn't reply, Ruffy thought that she might already be asleep. He decided just to put the clothes on the couch and just text Ashley to let her know.
"Inday, I think ma'am Ashley is asleep, instead of taking that to the room, you can put it in the dining room. I'll leave you here in case she wakes up and needs something. You better do a good job in taken care of her," Ruffy muttered as he prepared to leave to return to the mansion.
" Yes, Butler Ruffy! Please do not worry, I'm not abandoning ma'am and will make sure she's taken care of! " Inday proudly promised to the old man. She's happy because she was hand-selected by butler Ruffy to be Ashley's personal maid.
As soon as butler Ruffy walked out of the condo, Tiny came out from his room. He was stunned to see Inday without butler Ruffy.
"Are you alone? Where's butler Ruffy? "He asked indignantly as Inday just stared at him with his hair still wet since he just took a shower.
" Sir, Tiny! How are you?"Inday excitedly greeted, as her cheeks were reddened and could not look at him straight up.
Tiny shook his head when he realized that Inday's face reddened, and couldn't look him straight in his eyes. He decided to tease her in return.
"I'm fine, Inday, especially now that I saw your beautiful face. Hahaha!" He then crumpled her hair as he passed her by.
The poor girl was stumped and stood still as her gaze follows Tiny, who entered the kitchen to find something to eat.
When Inday heard the sound of pots and pans, she quickly went to the kitchen to see what she could do to help Tiny. She found him getting ready to fry some egg. With that, she immediately ran towards him and stopped him from what he's about to do.
"Sir, Tiny! Let me do it!" She quickly offered to Tiny, who was ready to break the egg in the bowl.
" Are you sure? You don't need to serve me. You only need to take care of ma'am Ashley. I'm not included." Tiny said, hesitating if he should let her or not while scratching the back of his neck.
Inday took the egg from Tiny's hand. " This is nothing, what so hard about frying an egg. I can do it!"
There was nothing Tiny could do but give the egg and stand up to wait for it to be cooked. The only problem was Inday doesn't feel comfortable when someone is watching.
So..."Sir, Tiny ... Could you wait at the dining table, and I'll bring it there when it's cooked." Inday pleaded with nervousness as Tiny continued to watch her.
Tiny listened and walked out of the kitchen. He turned the television on while he's waiting for his food. Just in time for Ashley to come out of the room, with her hair still wet since she just took a shower.
" Brother Tiny, is there someone else with us? What is it that I'm smelling. Is someone cooking dinner?" She was curious as to who could it be? It is not Tiny for he's right in front of her trying to find a show to watch on the television.
Tiny quickly got up when he heard Ashley's voice." Sorry, ma'am Ashley! I thought you were already asleep, so I decided I would watch tv. I'm sorry!" Said Tiny as he feels embarrassed that Ashley caught him sitting on the sofa and planning on watching tv.
" Hahaha! Hahaha! Brother Tiny! Why are you apologizing? Is it because you are in the living room and using the tv? Come on! What do you think of me! Keep doing what you're doing, and don't worry about me. Ok! "Ashley turned around and went to the kitchen to see who was there...
Ashley slowly opened the kitchen door and peeked in. When Ashley saw Inday humming a beautiful tune while preparing food, she happily greeted her.
"Hi! Inday, what are you doing here? How did you know I was here? Who brought you here?" Ashley bombarded her with the question as she entered the kitchen.
" Ma'am, Ashley! Good evening! Hahaha! Butler Ruffy brought me here. He told me to stay here and to take care of you. Are you hungry? Your meal is already ready at the table, and this is for Sir Tiny." Inday said as a beautiful smile plastered on his face.
" Ah, is that so? Why did you have to cook food for brother Tiny? Is the food you brought with you not enough? Nevermind! You don't even have to answer." Ashley went out and went to the dining room to look at the food Inday had brought.
Ashley's eyes widened when she saw the food at the table. It could feed at least five people. on the volume. Ashley just shakes her head, before ... "Brother Tiny! Brother Tiny! Let's eat! "Ashley called the same way when she calls any of her brothers in the Philippines.
Tiny was shocked to hear Ashley's shouting from the dining room. He quickly turned off the television and went to see what she wanted.
"Ma'am, you called for me? " Tiny asked curiously.
