Chapter 71

  • ~Christopher’s POV~
  • I can no longer deny the chemistry that exists between my wife and me. It’s just too obvious. Although she may give the impression that she doesn’t care, I take great pleasure in the impact that I have on her. I could feel her body quivering as I kissed her cheeks, which was very cute to witness. I could tell by the way her body responded to my touch how weak she had become. Since I am being completely honest, I know that I shouldn’t be seen with her; yet, at the moment, my wife is a target for a number of different things. I entered the launch with her, and once we were inside, Luke, her assistant, approached her with a glass of champagne and congratulated her. The venue was packed to capacity, and I couldn’t be more pleased with how well she did. She is still young but already possesses a lot of wisdom. I searched around for my Grandfather when my eyes landed on him. I stared at him for some time and the old man smirked. I walked up to him and found a seat near him. I have many questions, but I will save them for later. As I sat and waited for the launch to start, I spotted both my mother and my grandmother walking up to Camila. They were supposed to be angry that our legacy was being run by my wife, but 'Nope' they didn't seem to care one bit. This can only mean one thing: the two women do not care who runs my company or the business that belongs to our family. I can only be relieved that they have not taken their frustration out on Camille. I watched them interact with one another till Grandma took out something from her clutch bag. I witnessed my mom nodding and smiling signaling Camille to bend down a bit since she was a little taller. My eyes went wide when I saw what grandma had just given Camille. That necklace is from my great-great-grandmother. It has been passed down through generations. It cost a fortune. I remember all my brothers' wives wanting that piece of treasure but none of them were fit to receive it. That necklace holds a special place in her heart. I sit and observe my wife, refusing to let anything flood my thoughts. Trying to find some reassurance, I looked at the way she was clutching Liam’s hand. I knew she was nervous. I am supposed to be holding her hand, but not now. My dramatic entrance with her was enough. I can't afford to be seen with her, otherwise, the entire plan will fail.
  • I walked up to her and secretly gave her hand and gave it a light squeeze. She gave me a glance but remained silent. I leaned closer to her but not too close, "You've got this, Princess." I took a peek in every direction, making sure that no one noticed anything. I squeezed her hand again and massaged it a bit to ease her nerves and walked away. She didn't seem surprised. As I went back to my seat, I watched as she looked at me and smiled for a second, and continued with her interactions. I find it hard to comprehend that I have been oblivious to what I have always felt for my wife for such a long time that I have held back from giving in to those feelings. She may be young, but she definitely has some wisdom under her belt. I turned my attention to the opposite side of the room, where I noticed Claudia. She was wearing a lilac dress of considerable length. She appeared to be gazing around, and eventually, her gaze came to rest on me.
