Chapter 8 - CEO’s Surrender: With You, I Can Never Win

Chapter 8

Dumbfounded at being mistaken for the new maid, Finley did not react for a moment.

Meanwhile, the housekeeper, Kate Jones, was getting annoyed with the strange newcomer who seemed a little slow.

Not once did Kate think that the strange girl in the living room was a guest. After all, no other women had been allowed to visit Turner Mansion.

Especially with that ugly face and cheap clothes…

“Are you deaf, Girl? What are you still standing there for? Chop chop! Get to work.”

Finley was about to explain who she was when the housekeeper started grumbling under her breath about dumb and lazy maids.

Tired and hungry, Finley decided to ignore the housekeeper.

She wasn’t stupid. After waiting for half an hour, that husband of hers hadn’t shown up yet. He must be lurking somewhere, waiting to see what she would do.

Finley tossed the uniform to the side and sat on the sofa.

Kate’s face turned red with anger, “How dare you! Get up! How can a maid relax on the sofa like this?”

Finley raised a brow at the housekeeper’s attitude.

Then she coldly said, “I never said I was the new maid.”

If she couldn’t even deal with the staff, how would she have the gall to take on the role of Mrs. Turner?

Kate blinked in surprise when the strange young lady said casually, “Sorry but I’m a friend of Mr. Turner.”

“You? How can you be Mr. Turner’s friend? I’ve never seen the boss have a friend like you before.” Finley chuckled dryly, “I’m one of a kind. Though if we were specific about it, I’m a new friend… and his new doctor.”

A sea of black greeted her.


Despite the simple designs, Finley knew that one piece of clothing cost several times more than what she had on.

Casually reaching out a hand, she grabbed a random long-sleeved shirt and went to the bathroom to shower.

The whole time, the silent man on the couch did not stop her.

When she came out of the bathroom, Bryan was still in the same spot, reading a book.

Finley stopped to admire the view.

The more she looked at him, the more satisfied she was.

“I’ve got good taste,” Finley silently praised herself.

Smiling seductively, Finley approached the man and called out sweetly, “Hubby…”

Bryan felt the word like a phantom sensation down his spine.

He looked up at the freshly showered and unblemished face of his new wife.

That innocent and fair face contrasted greatly with the black silk shirt that she had on.

There was a slight blush on her face, perfectly completing the charming image.

Bryan watched as Finley flashed a shy smile at him.

She walked to the bed and lifted a knee to climb onto the bed.

The view of those long legs from behind…

Bryan’s eyes darkened and he immediately put the book down. Then he stood up and walked to the bed.
