Ella was pretty sure that if Jason wouldn't even let her drive with Lyla to go shopping, that riding on the back of Will's bike wasn't going to go over well either. She was right, as Jason confirmed that she wasn't allowed to do go with him. It bothered her for a second, as she imagined how cool it would be to be able to act as if he was her boyfriend who was taking her shopping, but then remembered that the helmet would probably give her horrible hat hair. She was not about to deal with that.

Luckily for her though, Lyla insisted on taking her despite Jason already rejecting the idea. Her sister turned and left, going upstairs to get ready, just as Sarah scolded her and commented on how she was acting like Lyla. Ella didn't mind that comment - in fact, she appreciated it. She didn't mind being disrespectful to Sarah, or even Jason (although she wasn't as confident doing it to him yet, knowing that he actually would punish her), if it meant that she was becoming as cool and rebellious and Lyla was.

Ella was too excited about the idea of going shopping with Lyla to think of another comment to use against Sarah, so she left the kitchen and headed towards the front door. She had left a pair of sandals there after getting them covered in sand the day before at the beach. They had dried off now and she shook off the sand, waiting for Lyla to return to leave as she slipped them on.

The gate buzzer rang, signaling that someone was at the front gates but Ella didn't react to it. At home, she had been banned from answering the intercom after she let in several solicitors and Jehovah's Witnesses. Her parents had warned her that she was only allowed to answer it if she was expecting someone but Ella was too impulsive to not push the button when it rang. After being yelled at for doing it multiple times over the past year, she knew better than to do it again. It wasn't a problem though because only a moment later, Jason approached and did it himself. It didn't even click in Ella's mind that it was the nannies until she decided that she'd wait for Lyla by the car and pulled the door open, only to find two girls standing in the doorway, both only appearing to be only a few years older than Jason. They were a lot younger and prettier than she expected them to be and for a moment, Ella forgot about going shopping with Lyla. She looked the girls up and down before turning back towards Jason, unsure of what she was supposed to say to the girls.

"Me and my sister are going shopping," she said. It came out a bit awkwardly, considering that Ella skipped introducing herself and jumped right to the point, but when she glanced at their bags and remembered that the girls would be staying with them all summer, it started bothering her again. She didn't want them bossing her around in place of her parents, even if her mother had assured her that she would have fun with the nannies. Ella doubted that Lyla would like them and as long as she didn't, Ella wasn't going to either.
