Sophia was a real piece of work, wasn’t she? She knew full well that she was friends with Ellinor, yet she deliberately brought up how Theo hadn’t been mentioning Ellinor lately right in front of her. It was as if she was trying to seize power or something.
Couldn’t take the power directly, huh?
Why go through Ellinor’s friend? Because she was betting her bottom dollar that her friend would tell everything to Ellinor right?
This pair were both sly as foxes!
“If Mr. Blanchet doesn’t want to spill, why do you think I would? Ms. Sophia, it’s a real treat to dine with you, but let’s not pretend we’re actual friends, okay?”
Sophia didn’t even bat an eye at the pushback, her nerves were made of steel. She was still smiling and saying, ‘Ms. Gipson, I’m just curious, there’s no need to be on high alert. Do you happen to know where Ellinor is right now?!
This caught the usually emotionless Theo’s attention, causing him to shoot a look at Ira
Ida nearly jumped out of her skin. She should never underestimate Sophia.
She adjusted her glasses nonchalantly I wish I knew where she was! It’s been ages since we last saw her, and we’re all worried sick, but she just won’t show up, probably because of someone she’d rather avoid! So, we don’t want to add to her misery”
Sophia feigned confusion: “Someone Ellinor doesn’t want to see? Ms. Gipson, you’re not implying Then, are you? Why wouldn t Ellinor want to see Theo? As far as know, he’s always been good to her”
ida smiled and replied “And what’s your standard for good? Just sweet talking? Ms. Sophia, if that’s what you consider good, cherish it by all means! Ellinor doesn’t care for empty words”
Sophia frowned. “See, I knew it. Ms. Gipson, you must know why Ellinor left Theo, night? Otherwise, you wouldn’t be saying things like that, you’re speaking up for your good friend!”
At this point, Sophia turned to Theo. Theo, did you hear that? Ellinor’s good friend is not happy with you! It must be because Ellinor’s been complaining about you!” Ida’s heart skipped a beat, this woman really knew how to stir the pot.
But she didn’t care about being manipulated anymore. She didn’t care what Theo thought of her, and she couldn’t care less about whatever Sophia said
But Thed’s intense gaze did make Ida feel a bit uneasy. She forced a smile. “Mr. Blanchet, why are you staring at me like that?”
Theo looked at her with a serious expression. “Do you know where Ellinor is or not?]
Ida’s heart was racing, this man’s gaze was so intense that it felt like he could see right through her.
She couldn’t let her emotions affect Ellinor and ruin all her efforts Ida gathered herself and was now all smiles. ‘Like I said, I don’t know, and neither does Chase. We’re looking for her, but we have no leads. How about you, Mr. Blanchet? Have you heard anything about Ellinor recently?”
Theo’s gaze darkened as he shook his head coldly. “No”
Ida sneered mockingly. ‘Seems like Ellinor really doesn’t want to be found by a certain someone. Because of this person, even Chase and I cant see her anymore! What a shame!”
Theo’s brow furrowed even more.
Sophia’s eyes flickered “Ms. Gipson, did Ellinor ever badmouth Theo to you before?”,
