Ella:  I’m so tired. All she does is make me work. I don’t want to be here anymore. I just want to be someplace else far, far away like…Another galaxy sounds really good right now. Just anywhere else. Awesome. Shiny!

Devan:  Hey! Wake up!

Ella:  I was just finishing up this client’s page here…

Devan:  Yeah. It looked like you were.

Devan:  Look at the way she looks at me like I’m a slave driver. I just think she’s lazy. She has no work ethic. And she’s gettin’ kinda big too. Man, maybe I need to get her a bigger swimsuit.

Ella:  Excuse me! First, you make me work here all day, all night, and now you’re criticizing me for my weight. I have no time to work out thanks to you.

Devan:  How could you…I didn’t say anything. What happened to your water?

Ella is thinking about how tired she is when suddenly she opens her office door and green flows in. She walks towards it. Next thing she knows, she’s waking up at her desk. Remember, last week she fell asleep at her desk. Was the glowing green light a dream? Devan is angry with her for falling asleep. She starts thinking really mean things about Ella, and Ella hears them and reacts. Then they notice that Ella’s cup of water is green.

What happened to Ella? What was the green light? Do you think she was abducted by aliens? Why can she read Devan’s thoughts? Is she telepathic now?

Hahaha It seems that Ella had a event called "Astral Projection",It occurs when you are sleeping or in drowsiness state and you can "go out" of your body,in the other words,you project you "astral form" ;)

It's getting interesting i have to say. Now Ella is telepathic and may be they will use her nonordinary skills to make some business progress. I don't know I think I will definitely keep on watching closely what's going on there in the soap opera.

If not, so what makes ella read davan's thought. So i think she would be abducted by aliens. And may be she is the telepathic now… how poweful she is.
