Chapter 7 - The Adorable Twins and Their CEO Daddy

Excellent Acting Skills

Panic-stricken, Eliana stood frozen to her spot.

The strong man in the lead had pulled out a gun to confront his cheating wife!

‘Oh, my God! The male prostitute is doomed for sure!’

In a trance, Eliana thought about her twins. They had taken after that man. He was, after all, the father of her children.

Even if she despised him for all the suffering he had caused her, she couldn’t just stand by and watch him get killed!

No way! She wasn’t going to just let this happen!

“Eliana? Eliana! I’m talking to you!”

The harsh voice from the phone drew Eliana back to reality. Without responding, she hung up the phone and rushed inside the cafe ahead of the strong man.

She threw herself into Maurice’s arms and started wailing, “I love you so much! How dare you date another woman?”

Maurice was obviously taken aback. Bewildered, he looked at Eliana, who had tears in her eyes. Squinting at her, he asked coldly, “What the hell do you think you’re doing?”

Lowering her head, Eliana touched her belly dramatically and said, “I’m here to tell you that I’m pregnant with your child.”

All of a sudden, all eyes were on them.

“He got a woman pregnant, yet he has the audacity to date another woman. What a jerk!” one of the customers in the cafe commented with disdain.

Another one chimed in, “You know what they say about how a handsome man can’t be trusted.”

Maurice looked around at the pairs of eyes staring at him and was speechless.

What was this crazy woman up to? Their affair happened five years ago. How on earth could she have possibly gotten pregnant only now?

His face turned gloomy but his tone remained bone-chillingly cold. “Get away from me.”

“Never! Honey, I’m not feeling well. Can you take me home?” Eliana looked at him pleadingly, slipping her arms around his waist.

Maurice suddenly felt the warmth of her arms around him. He lowered his head to look at her and found that there were tears in her eyes, which made his heart skip a beat.

The woman sitting opposite Maurice was also stunned.

She had worked for Maurice for years, but this was her first time to see someone treat him like this. Moreover, this was her first time to see Maurice suppress his anger over something so ridiculous.


As soon as the woman started to speak, Maurice shot her a warning look.

The woman immediately understood and stood up to leave.

Eliana watched the woman walk out of the cafe and heaved a sigh of relief. As she turned her head to face Maurice, the tip of her nose brushed against his soft cheek.

Flustered, she immediately stepped back, trying to distance herself from him.

Maurice pinched her waist meaningfully and held her in his arms. With a faint smile, he parted his thin lips and asked, “Honey, where are you

going? Don’t be shy.”

Her eyes fell on his sexy lips. She was at a loss for words. “Shy? What…what’re you talking about? I was just…”

Maurice calmly raised his eyebrows, waiting for her to explain.

But for whatever reason, Eliana couldn’t conjure up an excuse. She just wanted to turn around and escape, but when she did turn around, she suddenly gasped in fear.

The three brawny men had entered the cafe regardless of the woman leaving. They stood side by side, blocking the path to the main door like a brick wall.


Trembling with fear, she mustered all of her strength and yanked Maurice out of his chair. Together, they ran out the back exit of the cafe.

As Eliana was dragging him away, Maurice looked at the back of her head in confusion. “Why are we running?”

However, before Eliana could answer, she saw Antwan storming towards her.

“You! How dare you come here!” Antwan raised his double chin and sneered at her with disdain.

It was definitely too late to apologize to him now!

However, maybe if she was willing to throw herself at him, he could forgive her and the project could move forward!

Sure enough, Antwan’s lustful eyes were already sweeping over her body. ‘Tsk tsk! This woman must be good in bed,’ he thought to himself.
