Married to a Secret Billionaire novel Chapter 10

Chapter 10 Pledging Your Treasure

When Liam pushed open the door of his house, he saw Stella coming out of the kitchen with two plates of dishes.

Her initially sad face immediately transformed into a smile upon seeing him, although the smile appeared somewhat forced.

Liam washed his hands and sat at the table. After a day of training, he was hungry, and the steaming food looked quite appetizing.

He picked up his bowl and started eating while Stella sat quietly across from him, not moving.

"What's wrong?" he asked, looking at her.

Stella paused and shook her head gently.

"Then eat," Liam said as he put a piece of meat on her plate. "Can you get full just by looking at it?"

Stella lowered her head and pursed her lips, but she really didn't have an appetite. Just then, her phone dinged with a message from her brother, Samuel Wright. "Sis, when are you coming with the money? The doctor claims that he's going to stop giving Mom medicine."

Her heart tightened as she subconsciously looked at the low cabinet drawer in the bedroom.

The jewelry Liam had given her was lying inside. The bracelet, in particular, should be worth a lot of money.

"What are you thinking about?" Suddenly, a deep voice interrupted her thoughts.

Stella snapped back and trembled at the sight of the man's deep-set eyes. There was something about Liam's aura that set him apart from ordinary people. It always left her with a strong sense of oppression whenever she looked at him.

"Nothing," she whispered.

Liam put down his bowl and looked at her meaningfully. "Is there something you want to talk to me about?"

Stella shook her head in panic.

Unperturbed, Liam looked at her for a moment before chuckling and continuing to eat.

Since she didn't want to tell him, he would not press. Sooner or later, she would reach her limits.

That night, Stella's heart was in turmoil. She read Samuel's message back and forth several times and thought of countless ways to earn money. But none of them could solve the urgent problem.

Going back to the Taylor family to ask for money was impossible. Now the only way was...

She quietly closed the door to her room, pulled open the cabinet drawer, and took out the carved wooden box. The jewelry inside glistened in the moonlight. She took out the bracelet and hesitated for a long time before finally wrapping it carefully and putting it in her pocket.


"Well, it's really nice," the staff member at the jewelry house said as she nodded and smiled. "Miss, although this bracelet of yours is outdated, it's a classic model with superior texture. Nowadays, it's rare to see something of such good quality in either gold or jade."

"How much can I get for it?" Stella asked expectantly.

"You want to pledge it, right?" The staff member smiled and took her to a cabin inside.

There were several professional instruments on the table. The staff member asked Stella to wait there for a moment before leaving.

Stella sat there, looking around. The jewelry store was more luxurious than she had imagined.

In fact, she hadn't held out much hope before coming. After all, the bracelet looked old, and given Liam's condition, he couldn't have given her anything too valuable.
