Ethan Carter had been miserable in the past four months. He couldn’t forget Amelia Scott at all and he thought it was funny since they just had one encounter for her to have such an effect on him. He thought everything was going well until after the company launch, Amelia asked him to leave her alone. When she pleaded with him to stay away from her, he couldn’t deny it, her words stung and the pain he felt showed on his usually expressionless face. ‘Does she hate me so much?’ He thought to himself. But knowing her bad mood was caused by himself, he just couldn’t bring himself to hold on to her, even if he needed her. For some unknown reason, he didn’t want to be the reason she was sad. He couldn’t be selfish, or so he thought. Ethan buried himself in work for four months, taking on more projects to keep him busy. He hoped he could work himself to exhaustion so that he didn’t have time to think about Amelia and mope around. Besides, he couldn’t continue to pester her as if he had a
The next day at the CT group, Ethan Carter was smiling to himself from ear to ear. He kept replaying the scene when Amelia snapped at him for adding the last condition to the contract. She was so upset that she immediately left and went to her room. Ethan thought she looked cute trying to be fierce. They had ended up signing the contract and he emphasized to her that he just wanted to marry her to make his mother happy and since Amelia needed someone to help her, she had no choice but to accept but added her own clauses to the contract to protect herself. Ethan had already helped her with the scandal after the contract was signed. The posts were taken down and he had reimbursed all the companies asking for refunds. Although he couldn’t do anything about the netizens who kept talking about the scandal online. “Sir.. sir?” Ethan’s train of thoughts were cut off by Josh who had been trying to get his attention for a while now. Upset at being interrupted, Ethan glared at his assista
Amelia watched in horror as Ethan’s face magnified in front of her agonizingly slow. She was about to push him away when he stopped just a few inches away from her face and then smirked. ‘He smirked! The nerve..’ Amelia thought before furrowing her brows. Her furious expression earned a chuckle from Ethan. He raised his hand and brushed his thumb along Amelia’s lips and raised it, acting to show her. “You had a smear of chocolate on your lips,” Ethan said and did something that completely threw Amelia off. He placed his thumb into his mouth and sucked on it. A pounding that had recently become familiar to Amelia was felt between her thighs; she squeezed her walls and thought, ‘Damn, is he seducing me?’ The chocolate on her lips was from the bars she was snacking on earlier when she felt hungry. Her situation made her depressed so she wasn’t in the mood to cook. Another chuckle made her look up at Ethan who had now stood up straight and after smirking again, he returned to cooking
“Seriously? Just kiss the girl!!” Amelia’s groan could be heard reverberating in the mansion. She was watching a romantic k-drama on the television in the sitting area. She was lying on a one-seat couch with her legs hanging over the armchair. “Oh gosh! So dumb! Why do you keep rejecting him when you like him?” Amelia complained when the female lead in the drama rejected the male lead. The way they kept fighting with each other frustrated Amelia but she was still hooked. Each ending of an episode made her want to know what would happen next so she wound up watching the series the whole day. It was a first for Amelia. Staying home with no worries and just binge watching dramas was a nice experience since she was always so busy with her demanding career. She munched on some snacks that Ethan had brought for her and looked at the clock on the wall. It was time for him to knock off from work. Days had passed since the gift incident but Ethan acted like nothing happened which Amelia was
“Ethan! Wait for me.” Amelia shouted after Ethan when she saw him walking away. “Julian, let's talk later, thank you for your help once more. I really appreciate it,” she said and ran after Ethan after cutting the call. The corner of Ethan’s lips curled into a cocky smirk and his heart tickled when Amelia cut the call to go after him. This small gesture calmed him down a little knowing Amelia put him into consideration. He believed his prey had already been caught in his trap. It was just a matter of time. It did not take long, however, for Amelia to burst Ethan’s bubble. Even though his stoic face showed no emotions, he was ecstatic that Amelia had shown a positive attitude towards him. If she didn’t have an ounce of care for him she wouldn’t have cut her friend’s call. Ethan’s mind had already gone far and envisioned how they would have a wedding when the scandal died down, how they would have mini versions of them running around the mansion in a few years. His mind had already
Ethan had a long night. No matter how much he tried, he just couldn’t fall asleep. He had messed up big time. He shouldn’t have tried to force Amelia to have sex with him, no matter how much he wanted it. Thinking his recklessness had hurt Amelia, he felt bad so before leaving for work when morning came, he prepared a surprise for her to make it up to her. A few hours after Ethan had left for work, Amelia awoke from her deep sleep. She remembered Ethan going to her room to tell her something although she was a bit groggy at that time. He had told her to not just sit in bed but take a tour around the mansion, especially the third floor. The way he said it made Amelia curious to find out what interesting things could be on the third floor. After freshening up and getting dressed in a pair of pink joggers and a white tank top, Amelia pulled her hair up into a messy bun and left the bedroom after checking herself out in the mirror. It seemed like Ethan thought all women loved pink,
“I’m going to freshen up,” Ethan said and after pecking Amelia’s forehead, he left them in the sitting area. Amelia chuckled awkwardly, feeling embarrassed. She looked up and saw Julian’s piercing gaze that looked hurt. Feeling guilty, she averted his gaze and cleared her throat. “Did you manage? Are the reporters still camping at my place?” She asked, trying to divert their attention to something else. But that was only going to happen in her dreams. “Why did you agree to marry him?” Julian asked instead of answering the question. He was so angry his jaw was ticking. He had clenched his hand tightly around the bag he was carrying. The reason he came home with Ethan was to ask Amelia in person if she had really married him but from their earlier display of affection, he already knew the answer. Amelia frowned, not liking the tone he was using on her. Her love life was her personal business, yet he sounded like a jealous boyfriend. She didn’t appreciate him interrogating her like s
Amelia groaned as she packed clothes into a bag in frustration. Ethan had really pissed her off with his undecisive attitude. Did he want her around or not? Halfway through her packing, she realized she was packing clothes that Ethan bought for her. “Argh!” She groaned and dumped the bag on the bed. She wasn’t going to leave with things he had bought. He was so rude and cold to her earlier. Walking out of the bedroom, she saw a blur and heard a creak to Ethan’s bedroom door as it closed, making her sigh. So he was spying on her after telling her to leave? She stared at his door for a few seconds then proceeded downstairs. When she walked over to Julian, he stood up with a huge grin on his face as if he had just been given his favorite candy. “Ready?” He asked her while beaming like a child. Amelia took a deep breath and looked into Julian’s brown eyes. “There’s something I want to tell you.” She said quietly. …. Ethan had regretted telling Amelia to leave. He was influenced
