Chapter 516 Ready For Another Round
By the time Nathaniel returned to Scenic Garden Manor, it was already nine at night.
The first thing he did was visit his sleeping children before heading to his bedroom to change his clothes.
He didn’t spot Christina in the bedroom, so he assumed she was in the study.
As expected, Christina was embroidering flowers onto Madison’s gown in the study.
The longer Nathaniel stared at her, the more he found her to be alluring, so much so his heart skipped a beat. She’s likea delicate flower waiting to be picked.
However, Christina tended to be absorbed in her work, so she didn’t notice Nathaniel approaching her.
It wasn’t until he coughed that she returned to her senses.
When Christina raised her head and saw Nathaniel’s handsome face, she beamed. “You’re back?”
“Mhm.” He nodded and eyed the gown in front of Christina. “It’s late. You should leave it be. It’s not good for your eyes if you keep working on it. As much as I support her work, I don’t want to see her ruining her eyes.
“I’ll stop after completing this section. Oh yeah, have you eaten yet?”
Nathaniel was very disciplined in many aspects, but he always had trouble maintaining a healthy meal
While his stomach had recovered greatly, and he didn’t suffer any pain, that didn’t mean he should be careless with it.
Upon meeting Christina’s sparkly eyes, he pursed his lips guiltily. “No… I forgot.”
She frowned immediately, ready to lecture an adult less sensible than a child. However, she swallowed her criticism when she noticed his brand-new stubble. Fine. I guess he has been incredibly busy lately, considering he doesn’t even have time to maintain his image.
In a voice filled with heartache, she inquired, “What do you want to eat, then? I’ll prepare it for you.”
Nathaniel wasn’t in a hurry to answer as he stretched his slender arm toward Christina and wrapped it around her waist, pulling her into his embrace,
Then, he lowered his head and pressed his thin lips to Christina’s fair earlobe. “I want… to eat you…”
The warm breath he expelled on Christina’s car made her blush red as an apple, tempting him to take a bite of her.
Giving in to his impulse, he lowered his head and kissed her deeply.
When Christina opened her eyes again, it was the next morning. She was still lying on the bed while Nathaniel was already eating breakfast with the children downstairs like usual.
When she recalled how much Nathaniel exhausted her without delay last night, she felt pissed and resigned.
However, as she still had many tasks she needed to perform later, she didn’t have the time to “admonish” Nathaniel.
After breakfast, Nathaniel asked the butler and bodyguard to send the kids to the kindergarten instead of doing it himself.
He then went upstairs to rouse Christina but saw she had already awoken and was picking a suitable gown in the closet after freshening up.
“Which one do you think suits me the best? The one on my left or the one on my right?” Christina was holding two gowns, one with a lighter color, which complemented her skin tone, and another with a better design.
However, Nathaniel didn’t care about the design or color. His primary focus was on the fact that both covered too little of her skin.
With a solemn expression, Nathaniel shook his head and said, “Both aren’t good.”
“Eh?” The anticipation in Christina’s eyes turned into shock. She almost questioned her taste until she saw him removing a long dress with long sleeves from a pile of clothing. Then, she understood what he was thinking.
“Forget it. I’ll pick this one. At least I can take a photo at the beach this way.” In the end, she chose the gown with the lighter color.
While the gown appeared normal from the front, it had a big v-shaped opening on the back.
If she stood before the blue ocean in that gown for a photo shoot, she would undoubtedly be exceptionally beautiful and sexy. In that scenario, Rayne would be overjoyed because it meant there would be new material she could use to update their account.
“No!” objected Nathaniel because he didn’t want other men to lay their eyes on Christina’s seductive back.
However, Christina wasn’t accepting any of his opinions anymore. Hence, she changed into the gown of her choice without delay and applied makeup while sitting at the dressing table. Additionally, she wore a few accessories.
With that, the lovely Christina was ready to stand before a camera.
“What do you think? Do I look beautiful?” Christina struck a pose in front of Nathaniel by touching her shoulder while standing sideways.
Nathaniel couldn’t help but gulp. “Yeah.” I think I’m ready for another round.
Upon noticing the lustful look in his eyes, Christina panicked and said, “I need to deliver the gowns to Madison.”
As she ended her sentence, she was ready to step past Nathaniel.
“I’ll drive you there.” Swiftly, Nathaniel grabbed her wrist.
Confused, Christina frowned. Didn’t he say he’s busy today?
However, no one could easily sway Nathaniel’s mind when he had made a decision.
Ready For Another Round
If he said he was going to drive Christina to her destination, he would do it.
After entering his vehicle with Madison’s gowns, he stepped on the gas pedal.
The expensive Lincoln flew down the highway. However, Nathaniel wasn’t driving them to the Taggart residence. Instead, he brought them to the suburban bay resort.
That day was the day of Madison’s engagement banquet, which was held at a bay resort.
The latest marriage partner that the Taggart family engaged Madison to was from the Lesley family, an industry giant. Hence, all prominent figures in Jadeborough were invited, except for Nathaniel.
Back then, Christina was perplexed to learn that Madison had delivered an invitation to the Hadley residence but not Nathaniel.
Has Madison truly fallen out of love with Nathaniel? With that question in mind, Christina arrived at her destination.
When she descended from the vehicle, Madison’s housekeepers immediately welcomed her. They helped carry the gowns in her hand and dragged her forward.
Before Christina could bid Nathaniel farewell, she was already brought to Madison.
Madison was wearing a bathrobe as she sat with her legs crossed on the couch, reading a magazine. Her hair was loose around her shoulders.
“Ms. Steele has arrived, Ms. Taggart,” the housekeeper informed.
Upon hearing that, Madison peeled her attention away from the magazine and glanced at Christina.
Shock flashed past her eyes when she noticed Christina’s outfit.
“I’m here to deliver your gowns, Ms. Taggart. Do you want to give them a try?” As a professional designer, Christina didn’t leave immediately after handing over the gown. As there was still time, she wanted to see if her work was a good fit for Madison..
If it wasn’t, she could make adjustments on the spot.
“Okay.” Instead of troubling Christina, Madison rose cooperatively.
Just as Christina thought Madison’s attitude had improved, her assumption was immediately proven
That was because Madison removed her bathrobe in front of Christina.
Madison’s attractive figure was exposed to Christina when the robe landed on the ground.
Like a proud peacock, Madison raised her chin. “What do you think? Mine are bigger than yours, wouldn’t you say?”
