Chapter – 25

You’ve Been Deceptive with Me!

“Get inside!”

Byron forcefully pushed Athena on the shoulder.

Athena stumbled back, taking a couple of steps.

Just as she was about to move forward to intervene, Byron had already entered the room and forcefully shut the door.

The sound of the door closing reverberated, making Athena’s heart race.

“Mr. Crawford, if you have something to say, let’s step outside and discuss it,” Athena spoke in a low voice, trying to keep her composure.

Memories of Byron’s troublesome behavior on the cruise ship came flooding back to her.

“Step out?” Byron advanced toward Athena, each step deliberate.

Athena’s brows furrowed, and she instinctively retreated.

“If I step out now, are you not afraid of your new lover catching sight of me?” Byron’s words sent a shiver down Athena’s spine. “When did you and that guy from the Chambers family get acquainted? When did you both arrive here together behind my back? What have you been up to?”

“Byron, can you please stop this nonsense?” Athena’s irritation was evident. “There’s nothing between Gabe and me. I’m here on a business trip to Salin City!”

At this point, Athena found herself backed against the wall, unable to retreat further.

In the next moment, Byron’s frigid hand tightened around her neck.

“All those intimate photos of you were sent to me. Are you still denying it?”

Athena felt his grip tightening and instinctively tried to break free from his hold.

“I didn’t—”

“You’ve been lying to me. For five years, you’ve been wearing a mask around me. You’ve been deceiving me!”

“Mr. Crawford, wasn’t that mask something you desired?” Athena managed to grip onto Byron’s fingers firmly. “You asked me to play the role of Miss. Bates, and I did my best to make you happy. Now you’re blaming me for it?”

Byron’s pupils dilated suddenly.

She was right…

Hadn’t he fallen for her while she wore that mask?

“Byron, you’re hurting my hand. Let go…”

Athena felt a sharp, tearing pain in her left hand.

Byron snapped back to reality.

He instinctively loosened his grip a bit.

Blood was seeping through the bandage on Athena’s left hand.

“Why did you struggle?”

Byron took her hand and guided her to the sofa.

“Did you bring any medicine?”

Athena tried to retrieve her hand, but Byron resisted.

Struggling against his grip, Athena winced in pain.

“I told you not to struggle!” Byron commanded domineeringly.

“I need some medicine. My hand is nearly healed,” Athena retorted with frustration.

Byron looked at her, traces of anger still lingering in his gaze.

“Intimate photos? What’s that about?” Athena’s voice grew deeper.

Byron’s hostility surged again.

He unlocked his phone and opened the photo albums. “Take a look. I’m not mistaken, am I?”

Athena’s expression grew somber. She examined the photos one by one. The more she looked, the angrier she became.

“Did you have someone tailing me?” Athena stared at Byron.

“I don’t have time for that. Someone sent these to me.” Byron angrily tossed his phone aside and fixed Athena with a fierce gaze.

“These are all misinterpreted pictures. There are surveillance cameras everywhere in the airport parking lot. Mr. Crawford, with your influence, why don’t you just check the surveillance footage?” Athena spoke in a deep voice.

“Misinterpreted?” Byron hadn’t even considered this possibility.

Athena sighed in exasperation. “There are multiple angles. Which photo actually shows Gabe and me kissing?”

Byron pondered for a moment; none of the photos captured that scene.

“Go check. I’m going to rest.” Athena tried to get up.

Byron forcefully pushed her back.

“What do you think you’re doing?” Athena’s anger flared up as well.

“Who authorized your business trip? Why didn’t you inform me?” Byron demanded.

Athena looked at him squarely. “There’s an issue with the project I’m overseeing, so I’m here to handle it. Why didn’t I inform you? Why would I? Mr. Crawford, I’m not your secretary anymore.”
