Chapter 4 - CEO’s Surrender: With You, I Can Never Win

Chapter 4

Less than an hour later, Finley Keith and Bryan Turner were officially husband and wife.

Before they signed their names on the marriage certificate, Finley had looked up at the tall, slightly grumpy man and said comfortingly, “Don’t worry, you won’t regret this.”

Bryan snorted and grumbled under his breath, “I’m already starting to.”

“I swear, you won’t. I’m so powerful that you won’t need to worry about me. Ha! As your wife, I would even protect you from the wolves in your family.”

As with many other rich and powerful families, the Turner family had some snakes lurking among them.

Bryan dismissed her confident words with a shake of his head and wordlessly signed his name.

After they collected their marriage certificate, Bryan led the way out of the

Understanding her mother’s cue, Tricia said, “Dad. Have you heard anything from the Turners? Alton Turner is actively searching for someone to become his granddaughter-in-law. Since Rita already has a boyfriend, the position of Mrs. Turner should be mine, right?”

After that, she sent Rita a smug smile.

Rita rolled her eyes and retorted, “It’s just a casual fling. Who knows? The old man may prefer someone younger to marry his precious grandson.”

Tina chuckled, “Whoever Alton picks from among you two will be the envy of everyone in the city. With either one of you as the wife of Bryan Turner, no one will dare to look down on us. Then once a child is born, the Keith family’s inheritance will be ours.”

Tricia and Rita exchange glances, both confident in their ability to win.

Dirk was already celebrating his success. After all, the Turners owed him a favor. He was looking forward to becoming in-laws with one of Capital City’s most powerful families.

“Tina, bring the girls out shopping tomorrow, let’s pay a visit to Alton-”

A loud bang interrupted Dirk’s words and he snapped at the maid that ran in, “What the hell is that? Can’t you see that we’re having dinner?”

“S-sir, it’s… Miss Finley…” Her face white as a sheet, the maid gasped as she tried to catch her breath. to explain.

“Who cares about the b*tch?” Tina shouted. “Her matters have nothing to do with us anymore.” Suddenly, a loud squeaking noise sounded and a large coffin was wheeled into the dining room by a veiled figure dressed from head to toe in black.

“Oh, really? And here I thought this celebratory dinner was for me.”

The figure spoke in a low clear voice, shocking everyone in the room. Tina blanched and thought, “Ghost!”
