“You will be a part of my family soon, carrying the respect and pride of the Addison name. There are certain rules you must follow.”
She surprisingly offers a sweet, gentle smile, suddenly changing her composure from being a cold stone statue to a charming woman. She leans closer until my hot breath fans over her face.
I frown, confused at her sudden change.
“Please, do tell.” Even her voice oozes with politeness.
“You will behave like an ideal wife. Be polite and respectful to each and everyone. Attend every function I will go to. You can even meet the other captains’ wives for their usual lunch meetings.”
She nods at every order I list out, listening to each word.
Good thing she is learning already, otherwise she won’t be able to cope on the first day. I have no idea how things are within her family, but it surely is different than in mine.
“Anything else?” she asks with a seductive yet sweet voice. She licks her lips and the sight stirs a hint of desire within me.
“After we get married you will hand over your position. I will take care of the Liverpool territory and The Firm.”
The smile instantly disappears and before I can speak furthermore, she slaps me right across my face with a viper speed. Her whole demeanor changes.
