"He is not yours!" She affirms with a confident and unwavering look. "Whose child is he, then?" I question, my eyes wandering to the boy with piercing blue eyes like mine. Celine narrows her eyes with her hands clenched. "He is mine!" "What about his father? Who is he?" I drop my hands lazily and watch her intensely. "That is none of your business." She says defensively. "It means he is mine and I am taking him", I conclude with a smile and walk past her to pick up the child who is already dozing off. "No, no, no!" Celine chants, blocking my way. "Please, don't take him. I beg you!" **** After realizing she was pregnant which was not part of the deal she made with Billionaire Bryan Martinez, Celine left his mansion before the end of the contract.

Will this reunion blossom the love between them before her departure? How sweet will Bryan's revenge be for Celine?

Bryan's POVI didn't make plans for Jason to have a nanny before he was brought into my house. I stared at him in amazement, finding it very hard to believe that the boy in my arms is my flesh and blood.

Bryan's POVThe first sound that hit my ears is the crying sound of Jason disturbing the peace of the house. I furrow my brows in confusion, wondering if he has been crying since I left for work in the morning. When I said I was going to bring his mother, I didn't mean to do that. I just said that to him to make him stop crying.Why the hell is he still crying?I hiss at intervals as I walk into my room and peel off my clothes before going into the bathroom to take a shower. I am damn tired and I want to eat and go to bed early so I can prepare for tomorrow's convention. I finish taking a shower and come out. I look up to see the wall clock and the time says it is 10 pm.I walk furiously to my briefcase and pull out the chocolate box I got for him before strolling out.

Bryan's POVI slam my fist on the large desk in front of me as anger courses through me. It jerks the files up, making my pen fall off the desk. I am not really concerned about the pen or the file that is half-open because of the effect of my slamming, my attention is on the man in front of me."What the hell!" I grit in anger."I'm sorry, sir", he apologizes firmly, bending his head down."Sorry?" I scoff. "How is your sorry going to solve this shit? If you don't look for a solution to this problem, I will have no choice but to invite the external auditors to come and check the accounts of your department as well as the Sales and Finance Department.
