My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 320: Threatening
“That’ll be great if he really likes Wendy,” said Nellie.
Nellie looked at him with a knowing smile.
Jaylen looked down and pursed his lips.
‘Indeed.It’s a good thing, ‘ he thought.
Bruce had always been stubborn.He was never the type to submit to anyone, and he rarely did what he was told.
Besides, he had signed a contract with Glory Media, a company under the umbrella of Oliver Group.
Even if Jaylen and Nellie wanted to force him to quit the entertainment industry, it was impossible.
They really couldn’t do anything to him.
Bruce didn’t have a weakness they could exploit.He didn’t care about the company or his parents.
If there was someone he cared about, then things would be different.
Jaylen sat down on the sofa.
“Nellie, maybe it’s just gossip.They might even use the gossip to make people talk about them.In fact, now that I think about it, maybe the crew arranged to spread that rumor.It would hype up the play.”
“Well, Bruce has made so many movies and TV series, and I’ve never seen any crew who tried to make use of him like this,” said Nellie.
Bruce was revered in the entertainment circle.
Still, Jaylen shook his head.
“How could Bruce fall in love with Wendy?” Nellie narrowed her eyes.
“Whether it’s true or not, let’s give it a try.What have you got to lose anyway?”
The next day Jaylen and Brian went out early in the morning.
They went to visit the C**k family to apologize, and they also planned to discuss the marriage between Grace and Brian.
Only Nellie was left in the villa.She originally planned to go shopping with Mia today, but she changed her mind after chatting with Jaylen last night.
After breakfast, she called Jeffrey.Her calls were dismissed, but she didn’t give up.She remained patient and kept on dialing.
Finally, someone answered the phone.
“Good morning, Mrs.Oliver.I’m Ransom, Jeffrey’s agent.He’s currently working and can’t answer your call right now.If there’s anything you need to tell him, just tell me so I can pass it on to him after he’s done with his work.”After the rain stopped, the temperature in the city suddenly dropped.
Nellie shivered.She didn’t know if it was because of the cold weather or the cold shoulder she was given.
Her son was avoiding her.Nellie closed her eyes and sighed.
“Ransom, right? Ask him to answer the phone.”
“I know he doesn’t have work today and he’s probably sitting right next to you!” Ransom paused.
After a moment of silence, he said, “Well, Mrs.Oliver, if you have anything, please tell me.”
Nellie clutched the phone, her knuckles white.
‘Does Bruce hate me this much? She was shaking with anger, and she spoke through clenched teeth.”Tell him to come home before ten o’clock in the morning.
Otherwise, he shouldn’t blame me for being rude to the person he likes.”
Nellie didn’t wait for a response and hung up the phone.She turned off her phone and laid it face down on the table.
“Bring me a cup of coffee.”
The servant bowed slightly and left.
Nellie calmed down.She massaged her nape and sipped her coffee.
The weather turned sunny, and the rays peeked through the glass.
Sunshine touched her body, making her feel warm and comfortable.She looked at her watch while drinking coffee.
Nellie grew impatient as time went by.
‘Did I guess it was wrong?’ she wondered.
Did Bruce not like Wendy? If he did, why hadn’t he shown up yet? Just then, a tall figure appeared on the cobblestone path outside the garden.
Nellie saw the figure and smiled.He was here! ‘Good! This serves as a confirmation, Bruce.’ She guessed it right.
Bruce liked Wendy! Five minutes later, Jeffrey stood in front of Nellie, and his face contorted with rage.
“Mom, tell me.”
Jeffrey rested his hands on the table.His face was only inches away from hers, and he glared at her furiously.
“What the hell are you planning?”
The angrier he became, the calmer Nellie was.His anger basically proved how much he cared about Wendy.He wouldn’t react like this if he didn’t feel anything for the woman.
‘My chances of success have just increased exponentially.The thought filled Nellie with great pleasure.She had to resist the urge to giggle.She put down the coffee cup gracefully.
“Bruce, you already have someone you like.Why don’t you just tell me?”
Suspicion clouded Jeffrey’s face.It was true that he liked Wendy, but few people knew it.It wasn’t as if he went around telling everyone about his feelings.
He wondered how his mother knew.He was in a hurry just now and couldn’t think clearly.
But looking at Nellie, he gradually came back to his senses.
‘D**n it.Is she trying to draw me out?’ Jeffrey smoothed his hair back and pulled out the chair.
He sat down and crossed his legs, pretending to be calm.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“I’m talking about Wendy.”
The expression on Jeffrey’s face suddenly changed.
Seeing his reaction, Nellie smiled again.
“Bruce, I didn’t expect you to fall in love with Wendy.Do you know what happened between her and your brother?”
“That was all in the past.” Nellie raised her eyebrows and gave him an assessing look.
“So you knew that.”
‘He already knows that Wendy is Brian’s ex-girlfriend, but he is still madly in love with her.He really loves her so much.’
She knew she had better chances at succeeding.
Nellie took out a file and pushed it in front of Jeffrey.
His forehead creased with suspicion, and he refused to touch the folder.
“Open it and find out for yourself.”
With a frown, Jeffrey thought for a while opened the file.
When he saw the document, he froze.He could hear the pounding in his ears.
Inside was Wendy’s recent schedule.
According to the file, she stayed in Room 2233 of Ariosea Hotel.
She got up at half-past six every morning and went to the crew to work at seven o’clock.She would often finish working at ten o’clock in the evening.
There was also her route from the hotel to the set every day.
Jeffrey’s face turned livid.He pushed the file aside and stared at Nellie.
“Mom, what do you want?” Nellie grabbed his hand from across the table.
She sighed and spoke sincerely.
“If I hadn’t been desperate, I wouldn’t have resorted to schemes like this.Bruce, listen to me and date Mia.Okay?”
Despite her relaxed demeanor, her tone barely concealed her underlying threat.
Jeffrey felt cold all over.It never crossed his mind that his own mother would one day threaten him.
“Mom…Are you threatening me?”
“Bruce, you left me with no choice.You know that.” Jeffrey sneered and huffed.
Who was this woman in front of him? He felt like he didn’t know her..He reached out and pried Nellie’s fingers from his hand.
“What if I don’t agree? What are you going to do then?”
“Bruce, trust me.Even if your father and I were broke, it would not be difficult for us to deal with a single mother with a child!”
