The Enticing CEO's Chosen Bride novel Chapter 1300

"Sure, if you end up not backing us, it's cool. Damon and I won't exactly be starving."

Presley was so pissed off that his eyes were practically bulging out of his head, huffing, and puffing at Chloe. "You really are one stubborn piece of work."

Chloe grinned. "I think 'stubborn' might be a better fit for you."

"If you're hell-bent on this, don't blame me for not showing any mercy to Damon!"

Chloe sighed. "That's a shame, Presley. Our chat today was a total waste of time. I did my best to try and salvage things, but if that's how it is, I'll get out of your hair. Take care of yourself."

With that, she turned, heading for the study door.

But before she could even reach the door, there was a knock, and Marina's voice echoed from the other side. "Presley, Ms. Wendy is here."

Chloe raised an eyebrow, talk about perfect timing.

"Let her in!" Presley grumbled. He needed someone to blow off some steam on.

As soon as he finished speaking, the study door was flung open, and Wendy's slender figure appeared in the doorway, a faint smile on her face. "Presley...Chloe? You're here too."

Chloe smiled at her. "What a coincidence."

Wendy's gaze involuntarily landed on Chloe's stomach.

Chloe took a few steps forward, her outfit making her look both sophisticated and stylish, but something seemed off. Wendy frowned, her gaze finally landing on the flats on Chloe's feet. Her heart shot up to her throat, the pain making it hard to breathe.

Wendy looked up at Chloe, her heart filled with anxiety. She bit her lip. "Chloe, your outfit today...it's very pretty."

Chloe looked at her quietly for a moment. "Really?" she looked down and adjusted her coat belt. "I think my shoes are prettier."

Wendy's gaze returned to the flats on Chloe's feet. "Indeed...they are beautiful."

Chloe didn't say anything further. Her hands were tucked in her coat pockets, and she walked past Wendy.

Her departure made Wendy even more anxious. On the way here, she had asked Addie a few questions, but Addie's reaction made her feel like Addie was clueless. If Addie knew, there would be no reason to keep it from her.

Her mood was slightly relaxed at first, but seeing Chloe, she couldn't help but want to confirm, especially seeing Chloe wearing flats today, which made her more nervous.

She knew that Chloe had been taken away by Yasmine and hadn't returned to the Harper family for days, but why would she suddenly return today? Was it to report good news to Presley?
