As Christina descended from the bed, she saw someone staring at her.
Holding her breath, she staggered backward, shocked. “Nathaniel?”
With a frown, Nathaniel dried his hair with a towel. “Why do you seem so disappointed to
Christina didn’t expect him to be the one who saved her. While she was touched, his words. immediately extinguished that feeling.
“I don’t feel anything when I saw you,” she spat.
In response, Nathaniel tossed the towel away and pushed her back to the bed.
His towering figure exuded an overwhelming pressure as he glared at Christina frigidly. “You’ve gotten bolder, Christina. You’ve some nerve to drink and socialize with men. If not for me, you would’ve been ravaged by that man!”
A storm brewed in his eyes when he thought about other men attacking her.
It’s his fault for driving me into this corner, yet he has the gall to admonish me! She blushed.
“We’re about to divorce each other. How I spend my time has nothing to do with you, Nathaniel!” barked Christina in a slightly hoarse voice.
At that moment, she was a like a lamb with its neck bitten, whimpering.
Nathaniel didn’t expect her to talk back to him. Hence, he grabbed her chin and kissed her.
His hot breath was mixed with the scent of sandalwood. It immediately sobered her
However, Nathaniel had just gotten a taste of her, so he wasn’t willing to release her continued to deepen his kiss, preventing her from speaking.
A determined look flashed past Christina’s eyes as she bit his lip, causing blood to spill into her mouth.
He grunted. Using the opportunity, she pushed him away and confronted him. “You’re disgusting, you know that? Even though you attended a banquet with Madison and took pictures with her, you brought me here and kissed me.”
“Are you jealous?” scoffed Nathaniel.
She snorted as though she had heard a joke and left the bed. “Why would I? In fact, I’d rather
you two get together so you’ll sign the divorce papers soon.” I can’t wait to leave him with the children and never see him again.
With gritted teeth, Nathaniel roared, “Christina!” I can’t believe she’s this cold-hearted! I saved her last night, yet she can’t wait to bring up the divorce!
Christina glanced at her dirty clothes lying on the ground. As she couldn’t wear it anymore. she was prepared to leave the room in her bathrobe. “If you have anything more to say, do it on the phone. Send me the divorce papers once you’ve drafted them.”
Just as she arrived at the door, Nathaniel shouted, “You’re just going to leave like that?”
Christina glanced at her bathrobe, which was made for men. It was ugly, but it covered her private parts.
Of course, she’d feel embarrassed running around in a bathrobe, but she had to act stubbornly in front of Nathaniel. “So what?”
While Nathaniel was p*ssed off by her, he couldn’t bear to watch her leave in a bathrobe. He knew nothing was underneath it because he changed her clothes last night.
Therefore, he pulled her back. “Stay here. I’ll leave.”
Without delay, he exited the room.
As Christina witnessed his departure, she felt upset. After snapping back to her senses, she was going to call her assistant to deliver her clothes. However, the doorbell rang before she could do that.
A female hotel employee stood in front of the entrance and delivered her a bag. “Mr. Hadley asked me to hand this to you, Ms. Steele.”
“Thanks,” replied Christina as she took it and closed the door.
In addition to a dress, a set of undergarments of her size was in the bag.
I can’t believe he still remembers my measurements… Christina couldn’t help but blush as she returned to the bathroom. After changing into the dress, which was a perfect fit for her, she returned to Gibson Corporation.
At the office, Anya learned about Christina signing the contract successfully last night on the phone. “Remember to send me the proof that she gave you the rebate.”
“No problem, Ms. Gibson,” replied Pablo.
They were actually cooperating to drag Christina down.
After ending the call, Anya grinned smugly. I’m curious how much longer you can stay as CEO, Christina.
Inside the CEO’s office, Christina was reading Anya’s accounting statements. There were so many numbers and conversions involved that it almost overloaded Christina’s brain.
“Bring me a cup of coffee, will you, Lina?” requested Christina without lifting her eyes
When Lina saw Christina’s empty cup, she suggested, “You’ve had two cups of coffee today, Ms. Steele. You should let the finance department handle something as draining as this.”
Christina paused for a moment as a dark glint flashed past her eyes. I’ve only been in Gibson Corporation for a while. How many employees here are actually loyal to me? I don’t want Anya to learn that I’m looking through the accounts and be alerted.
“It’s all right. I can handle this.” Upon finishing her sentence, she returned to her calculations.
Her major was design, so she was sensitive to numbers because her work also required precise calculations.
A while later, Lina placed a cup of coffee on Christina’s table. “We have a meeting with Hadley Corporation in the afternoon, Ms. Steele.”
“Got it.” Christina was still focused on the numbers.
The morning passed in a blink of an eye. While Anya’s accounting statements were clean, Christina still spotted a few loopholes.
She transferred all her findings to a flash drive and locked it up..
Just as she left the office with Lina to attend the meeting, she encountered Anya, who said, “I’ve decided to join you to prevent you from ruining this collaboration.”
Christina lifted her eyebrow. Is she genuinely worried or just interested in watching me fail?
The trio arrived at the meeting location swiftly.
Inside the room, Nathaniel wore an elegant suit with a delicate diamond brooch on his chest, slick hair, and an expensive wristwatch. His natural-born noble vibe was impossible to ignore.
He didn’t look like he was there for a business meeting but… more for a date.
The first to enter the room was Anya, who grew envious when she saw the table full of
