My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 319: His Weakness
Upon hearing what his father said, Brian was at a loss for words.
‘Why didn’t I think of this?’ The more he thought about it, the more it made sense to him.
‘Once the company regains footing and I take over its management, I can simply dump that woman” I just need to endure Grace for a while.
In the worst case scenario, I can just dismiss the whole ordeal as a test from God.He nodded slowly as he pondered.
‘Being a divorcee doesn’t mean much to a man, and as long as I’m rich, endless pretty women will want to marry me.
But if our family business goes down, I will lose everything.
All of a sudden, Brian felt enlightened.He knew what to do.
“I see it now, Dad!” he exclaimed, squaring his shoulders.
Jaylen patted him on the shoulder.
“It’s good that you’ve come to your senses.Your mom and I will talk to the C**k family and see if Grace is willing to give you another chance.” Brian nodded in earnest.
“Now that we’ve settled that, you should head to bed and think about how you can make her happy.You’ve been with other women before, haven’t you? I don’t need to teach you these things, do I?” Jaylen smiled.
“Not at all, I’ve got this!” Brian proudly knocked his fist against his chest.
“Don’t worry, Dad.I will do my best to win Grace over and get her money.”
“We are looking forward to your success!”
Brian turned and strode in the direction of his room, his head held high, his resolve renewed.He needed to devise a plan to charm Grace.His parents watched him go, both of them smiling gently at his retreating back.
The moment Brian disappeared, though, their smiles disappeared.
They spoke at the same time.
“You go ahead, Nellie.”
Nellie took a deep breath before saying, “I think we need to get Bruce back!”
A slow grin spread on Jaylen’s lips.He was thinking of the exact same thing.
At this crucial point where their company’s fate hung in the balance, it was obvious to everyone that Brian was not fit to be at the helm.
Even his own parents sometimes thought that he was not qualified to be the next CEO.
They had to spell the plan out for him to finally understand the circumstances.
If it had been Bruce, he would have assessed his options and figured things out from the first time he met Grace.
The couple shared a long sigh.
“Even so, Bruce…” Nellie frowned.
“If only Bruce was half as obedient as Brian, things would be so much easier for us.”
The Andrade family was a prominent and well-respected clan in the city.
Their roots could be traced back to the founding of the nation itself, and they had been blessed with good fortune their entire existence.
The C**k family, on the other hand, came from new money.
They were known as the nouveau riche.
To put it bluntly, the C**k family was nothing compared to the Andrade family.It was clear that Mia liked Bruce a lot, too.
If Bruce was willing to date Mia, then they wouldn’t be worrying about money like this and the company would survive.
Everything would work out in their favor.
But, as luck would have it, Bruce never listened to a word they said.
The couple sighed again, woefully this time.It took a while before they spoke again.
“You said that Mia likes Bruce,” Jaylen said.
“But what about him? Have you asked Bruce how he feels about her?”
“And? What did he say?”
Nellie closed her eyes and inhaled deeply.
“He said that he didn’t have feelings for her at all and we should stop wasting our time! He also told me that he would never do another blind date again.” Jaylen gaped, taken aback by what he had just heard.
“That bullheaded boy!” Nellie could only nod and smile bitterly.
“I’ve seen Mia before.She has a beautiful face and a perfect figure.More importantly, she has a very nice background.I just don’t see why Bruce doesn’t like her.”
Something occurred to Jaylen then, and he perked up and turned to his wife.
“Nellie! Do you think it might be because he has already fallen for someone else?”
It was Nellie’s turn to be stunned.She had never thought of that.
Since Bruce had started his career as an actor, she had seldom paid any attention to what he was doing.She found his chosen path to be shameful and not worth associating with the family name.
Nevertheless, news about her son would often reach their friends’ knowledge.
Sometimes, they would even actively seek her out just to tell her bits about Bruce, such as all the current gossip surrounding him, or which actress he was dating at the moment.
With that said, he had always had scandals with numerous women.
Now that Nellie thought about it, her friends had never spoken about any rumors regarding his love life this past year.
‘Is he really in love with someone?’ “Hang on a second, let me see if there are any tabloid articles about him!”
Nellie hurriedly took out her phone and entered Bruce’s
“Yes, that’s right! Isn’t she the girl who used to be with Brian? They had been together for several years, right? Why is she with Bruce?” Nellie said nothing.
She wanted to know the answer to that question, too.
“So Bruce is in love with her now?” Jaylen asked.
Nellie remained silent.
Indeed, it was highly possible that these two were in a relationship.It was stated right there on the news—they had spent an hour in a hotel room.
Bruce was Nellie’s son.She knew him well.
He was always cold and ruthless toward those he didn’t care for.He wouldn’t have stayed in a room with that woman if he didn’t even remotely like her.
Nellie scrolled down and saw Bruce’s response.He said they were only discussing their new script.
‘‘What a blatant lie! In the first place, why would they be discussing work matters so late at night?”
“This is absurd!” Jaylen rambled on, growing more furious by the second.
“Has he gone crazy? This Wendy, she dated Brian, got pregnant with someone else, and gave birth.What did Bruce even see in her?”
It felt as though it was just a short while ago when the city was buzzing about Wendy and Eris.
Wendy had admitted that she had given birth to a child.
‘Bruce fell in love with such a woman? Is he out of his mind?’ Jaylen shot to his feet in a rage.
“There’s no way! I’m going to call him right now.If he insists on being with this harlot, then he is no longer my son!” Nellie urgently grabbed his arm to stop him.
“Jaylen, don’t you think this is a good thing?” Jaylen frowned, visibly confused.
Nellie flashed him a smile.
“All this time, I was worried that we might never find Bruce’s weakness.But if he truly likes this woman, then I think we have a way to make him listen to us.”
