Chapter – 10
Come to My Room
The cruise ship was set to dock the following day, as the birthday party would last all night.
Gabe, being the host, couldn’t stay with Athena for long. He arranged a guest room for her to rest.
Athena finally had a moment to herself and took the opportunity to call Evie and report her work.
After that, she laid down on the bed, placing her hands gently on her belly.
“Baby, I haven’t been able to take care of you much these days, but I promise I will once I’m done with this job.”
Just then, her phone rang. It was the exclusive ringtone she had set for Byron.
Athena got up immediately and answered the call out of habit.
“Come to Room 1899,” Byron commanded, his tone chilly even over the phone.
“I have a headache,” Byron replied. He had a chronic issue of headaches, said to be an after-effect of the car accident.
“Is Miss Holland there? Please put her on the phone, and I can…” Athena started to suggest.
“Come here and teach her,” Byron interrupted. Athena couldn’t say anything else.
It was indeed part of her responsibilities to hand over her duties to Ruby.
She reassured herself, thinking that since Ruby was present, Byron wouldn’t do anything too over the line.
“Byron, is Athena really dating Mr. Chambers? I heard many people talking about it tonight. She’s quite impressive to find another wealthy man so soon after leaving you… Unlike me, so clumsy, I can’t even help you feel comfortable…” Byron had loosened his tie and undone two buttons of his shirt. He was half lying on the sofa, his face pale.
Listening to Ruby’s words, he felt his headache worsening.
“Did I not tell you to leave her alone?” Byron asked coldly.
Ruby was taken aback. “Wha-… I didn’t do anything, I… Did I say something wrong?”
“Don’t try to play games with me, Ruby.” Byron opened his eyes and stared at her, giving a cold warning. “Or you can be replaced as well.”
Ruby shivered slightly, not daring to argue. “I understand…”
Byron closed his eyes again. Shortly after, the doorbell rang, and Ruby went to open the door.
She felt a surge of disgust upon seeing Athena, but in Byron’s presence, she held back from causing any trouble.
“Athena, you’re finally here!” Ruby greeted.
Ignoring her, Athena walked straight in. Observing Byron’s pale face, she frowned.
“Come here,” Byron demanded.
Athena approached him. “Didn’t you bring your medication,
“No. Give me a massage,” Byron’s voice was weaker than Athena sighed, and Byron naturally rested his head on her lap. They appeared so intimate, sparking anger in Ruby’s eyes.
“Miss Holland, Mr. Crawford has a chronic issue with headaches. You must always carry medicine with you when you’re out with him,” Athena said, massaging Byron’s head with her slender fingers. “If the medicine doesn’t work, you’ll
“Shut up! I want some quiet,” Byron interrupted irritably.
Athena remained patient, “Mr. Crawford, you asked me to come here and teach Miss Holland.”
Byron opened his eyes, but Athena didn’t look at him, continuing to gently massage his temples.
In the next instant, Byron grabbed Athena’s wrist and sat up, pushing her down on the sofa.
“You just can’t wait to finish this handover, huh? Found the next man already? The mine boss? Or Gabe? Or Brad?”
“Byron, stop it! What nonsense are you talking about? Let go!” Athena struggled. your single, but he’s much younger than you. And his family will surely arrange a business marriage for him! So I can’t get married, but you’re happy to become another man’s sidepiece, huh?”
“Byron!” Athena was furious, feeling insulted and hurt by his accusations.
Byron grabbed her wrists and pinned them above her head, pressing his knees against her legs.
“That’s how you see me?” Athena’s eyes welled up with tears, her voice trembling. “I sold myself to you to save my grandma, but I’m not cheap!”
The word ‘cheap’ struck Byron like a hammer to the heart.
“I saw you receiving the mine boss’s card. I also saw you and Gabe…”
In a fit of rage, Byron lowered his head and kissed Athena forcefully, as if punishing her.
The kiss was intense and rough. Athena felt overwhelmed and her mind going crazy.
Ruby was still in the room! Did Byron even realize what he was doing?!
