Love beyond the mask ( Whitney ) Chapter 16

Ludwik’s Adam’s apple bobbed as Whitney leaned in closer, her soft body seeking his warmth. His breath grew heavier in response, and his cool gaze narrowed

Whitney’s cheeks flushed with embarrassment. He remained silent, multiplying her discomfort

Seeing this, Nolan could not help but feel a bit frustrated with Ludwik’s leniency. He decided to tease Whitney Anything goes, huh? Ms. Valentine, you frequent the clubs a lot, right? You must be good at dancing. How about giving him a little show to lighten the mood?” 

Whitney’s face paled as she shot Nolan a cold glare, refusing to dignify his comment with a response

Her fingers delicately traced Ludwik’s tie, pulling him closer with a humiliated downward glance. I’ll dance for you at home, Mr. L. Is that satisfactory?” 

Her scent wafted to him, stirring a mix of pity and desire

Her voice was weak, and as Ludwik scrutinized her, he remembered the near brawl she had been caught in earlier that evening. Perhaps she had been hurt

Considering the child, he thought it might be time to ease up on his lesson

His hand gripped her chin firmly, his deep eyes lifting. Are you going to let me get up now?” 

Whitney, realizing her imposition, moved back

He stood, casting a cold glance her way, and as he walked out, he took her small hand in his, leaving the people in the private room in stunned silence

After Ludwik left, Nolan remarked, Just like that, you’re letting her off the hook? She almost cheated on you,” 

What, you want her to dance for you?Ludwik’s features turned icy with annoyance, Get out, all of you!” 

Nolan and Parker exchanged a look, speechless

They watched as Whitney managed to charm Ludwik and whisk him away

Nolan clicked his tongue, That Whitney is no simple trouble, I tell you. She’s seduced the usually abstinent Ludwik in a matter of days. If his other lady finds out, there will be hell to pay” 

Parker’s expression darkened, Watch your mouth, don’t let Whitney hear you.” 

Realizing his blunder, Nolan shut up but could not resist adding, Whitney is just a contract wife, isn’t she? A year and the deal’s doneshe gives him a child, and then it’s back to the other one.” 

Parker, however, squinted thoughtfully. After tonight’s events, Ludwik’s heart was an enigma to all

Back at the mansion, Whitney got out of the car first, hiding her back pain while covertly asking the housekeeper, Taryn, for some pain relief cream

Ludwik watched her ascend the stairs, his handsome face clouding over. She had brought him home, and now she was turning cold again

His brows furrowed as he questioned Taryn, What did she tell you?” 

Madam is hurt. She asked for some ointment. Sir, you should take it to her. She’s so pale with pain!” 

Taryn sensed a rift between the couple

Ludwik paused, his thick eyebrows knitting together

Whitney lay on the bed upstairs in the bedroom, in too much pain to move. Hearing footsteps, she mistook them for Taryn and, trembling slightly, she lifted her shirt. Taryn, I can’t do this on my own. I need your help

As she lifted her clothing, the smooth expanse of her lower back was exposed to Ludwik’s view

1/2 

14.58 

His gaze darkened at the sight of a large, purplish bruise marring her skin

You said they didn’t kick you, didn’t you?His voice was stern and cold

Startled, Whitney turned to see him, her face flushing as she quickly pulled her shirt down

But Ludwik was already by her side, forcefully preventing her from moving, his annoyance apparent, Why didn’t you say you were hurt?” 

Whitney bit her lip, her eyes reddening with unshed tears, Did you give me a chance to speak? The moment you ensured the baby was fine, you walked away. I tried to explain, but you wouldn’t listen.” 

He was momentarily lost for words

His lips pressed into a thin line. He was still displeased. I told you to stay home. You ignored that, sneaking off to the club. Did you think of the consequences?” 

He was angry about that but did not know the whole story

I didn’t disobey you, Mr. L. I wasn’t at the club to misbehave. I wastricked by Preston. The bartender said he’d had a fall, and no one could pick him up. I couldn’t be heartless, so I foolishly went, only to be ambushed by him and my stepmother. Those men were hired to hurt me, to take their anger out on this child,
