Dominic stopped in his tracks, his tall and aloof figure facing away.
He suddenly turned around and fixed his gaze on Miranda, a faint mocking expression forming at the corner of his lips. His icy eyes revealed a hint of sarcasm.
“Miss Yeager, when did we ever have an engagement?”
Miranda’s heart ski pped a beat, and she widened her eyes.
“In my understanding, an engagement should be based on mutual willingness. Unfortunately, I don’t think we both possess such conditions!”
“Call me Mr. Campbell from now on.” Dominic sneered, “Miss Yeager, we are not familiar enough for you to address me casually.”
With that, he turned away crisply, leaving Miranda standing alone, stunned in place.
His figure gradually disappeared from her sight.
Miranda clenched her fists tightly, feeling like a heavy stone was lodged in her heart.
She took a deep breath, calming herself down, and then entered the study.
Grandfather Campbell’s face didn’t look good either.
Miranda noticed the shattered tea set on the floor and the toppled dragon-headed cane.
Just by looking at these, she knew that there had been a heated argument between the grandfather and grandson.
In such a situation, Miranda didn’t want to get involved. She politely offered some comforting words and was about to leave when she suddenly heard the vibration of a mobile phone on the tea table.
Grandfather Campbell glanced at it and said, “It’s probably something Dominic forgot here. Miranda, could you bring it to him?”
Miranda gladly took this opportunity and quickly agreed with a smile.
“Give him some advice when you see him,” Grandfather Campbell added, raising an eyebrow at her. “Miranda, I know you’re a magnanimous person and won’t bother with him, right?”
Miranda was taken aback.
Just now, she vaguely heard a few words at the door, something about another woman…
Could it be that Grandfather Campbell was suggesting that even if they got married, Dominic would
still have a woman on the side?
Miranda bit her lip and forced a smile. “Grandpa, you understand me. I’m not one to meddle in other people’s affairs. As long as Dominic is happy, I can accept everything about him.”
“You’ve raised Dominic so well, it’s impossible for him not to have admirers! Grandpa, if Dominic really likes someone in the future, it wouldn’t hurt for her to stay by his side. Wealthy young men are all philanderers, right? It’s better for him to be with a proper lady than being pursued by some unscrupulous female stars!”
“Besides, a marriage is a matter between two families.” Miranda poured him another cup of tea. “Grandpa, for the sake of the family’s interests, I won’t make a big deal out of it.”
Grandfather Campbell nodded approvingly, “I didn’t misjudge you; you are indeed suitable for
“Grandpa, you flatter me.”
A fire burned in Miranda’s heart, but she maintained her radiant smile on her face.
Soon, she took Dominic’s phone and hurried out.
The call that had stopped earlier suddenly came in again.
Miranda slowed her pace, and on the screen was just a phone number, no name. However, her intuition told her that this number was extraordinary.
What kind of relationship did this number have with Dominic that he didn’t even need to save it in his contacts?
A surge of hatred filled Miranda’s heart, and she was about to answer the call when a deep voice. came from behind her!
“What are you doing?”
Miranda was scared out of her wits, letting out a scream.
She turned around and faced Dominic’s cold and stern gaze, his sharp features looking exceptionally indifferent in the darkness.
“Dominic, didn’t you just…”
Dominic didn’t waste time on her and directly sn atched the phone from her hand.
Miranda stood frozen in place, not even daring to breathe.
Without bothering with her, Dominic called back the number. Soon, the call connected, and the surroundings fell silent. Miranda clearly heard a sweet voice from the other end of the line.
Miranda tightly clenched her clothes.
Dominic spoke tenderly to the person on the other end, with a smile in his eyes and at the corners of his lips.
“Are you back home?”
“Of course! I’m very well-behaved when you’re not around; I closed early and came back,” the sweet voice replied.
“What did you have for dinner tonight?”
“Tomato braised noodles.”
“Why eat that?” Dominic’s voice turned soft and affectionate, “That’s my signature dish!”
Jane coquettishly replied, “Well, you weren’t here, and I only wanted to eat that…”
Dominic lightly curved his lips.
“Hubby,” Jane paused for a moment and then asked, “When are you coming back?”
She denied it firmly, “No!”
But he only smiled without saying a word.
My Husband Is A Secret Billionaire
After a while, Jane couldn’t hold back and said softly, “Just a little bit…”
Dominic’s heart melted.
“As soon as things are settled here, I’ll be back immediately.”
“How long will it take?” Jane asked in a low voice. “Also, don’t forget our agreement: no going all out during the competition, no getting injured, and no… letting other women touch your muscles!”
He answered preemptively, “No letting other women touch my muscles!”
Jane giggled on the other end of the line.
“Janey, be careful at home in everything.” Dominic said, feeling worried.
Although he knew that Henry Finn’s arrangements wouldn’t go wrong, he couldn’t relax his guard when Jane was away from him.
“I’ll remember to check the water, electricity, and gas before going to bed. I’ll make sure to turn off the main switch before going out,” he advised, “and lock the doors and windows. Hang my clothes on the balcony, and put my shoes at the door. That way, people will know there’s a man in the
“Okay, I know!” Jane said, “Do you think I’m a three year old?”
Dominic chuckled. Actually, some of the practical knowledge was taught by her.
“By the way, hubby, tomorrow I’ll be picking up my mother from the hospital. After she’s back, I’ll be going to take care of her often.”
“I know, hon” he replied in a low voice, “Don’t worry, I’ll take care of mom with you in the future.”
Although he had never met his mother-in-law, Dominic always referred to her as “mom.”
Jane felt warm in her heart and softly said. “It’s getting late; you should rest early.”
“Okay,” Dominic hated to end this call. “You should also get some rest.”
He licked his lips, his voice deep and h oa rse, “Say goodnight to me.”
Hmm? Jane was stunned for a moment, then said, “Goodnight.”
Dominic smiled contentedly, “Do you know the meaning of ‘goodnight?”
“It means I love you.”
