The Reborn Wife Strikes Back ( Gordon Holmes’ ) Chapter 23

Chapter 23 

I thought you were here tonight to make a scene, but it turns out you were setting a trap. Taylor, you’ve really grown a lot.” 

His voice was even lower than before, almost seeming like he was commending me

However, I was aware this was far from a compliment, especially given his usual disdain for me. How could he genuinely praise me

On another note, I came across a new script titled Alluring City that seems quite promising

Given Holmes Group’s capabilities, wouldn’t it be more strategic to focus on a project with broader appeal?I suggested, hoping to soothe his anger

You haven’t been on the job long, yet you’re surprisingly wellinformed,he retorted, eyeing me coldly

His piercing gaze seemed to scrutinize every inch of my face. It was as if he could see right through me, aiming to dissect my every cell

Haven’t you always advised me to focus on improving myself instead of hanging onto you? I’m merely taking your advice to heart,I said, deliberately tracing circles on his chest

Despite not being naturally inclined to seduction, my past life’s obsession with romance dramas had taught me a few tricks

It seemed a touch of flirtation indeed had its effects

The frost in his eyes visibly thawed as he gently inquired, Really? Had you become so compliant now?” 

Yes, my dear,I replied with a slight smile, meeting his gaze with an air of innocence

I had made an effort with my makeup today, opting for a subtle yet defining look, particularly around my 


My eyes, large and dark, had always been praised for their lively sparkle

Yet, their vibrance diminished in the past, dulled by the continuous sorrow I bore for Gordon

The sparkle in my eyes had returned after my heart was freed

In that moment of eye contact with Gordon, I could feel a flash of light in his eyes. Simultaneously, his hand tightened around my waist

My slender waist was firmly held in his embrace, our posture highly intimate

Lately, the physical closeness between us seemed to have increased

That drama is a musthave for me. You can cancel your deal with Mr. Morton, and I’ll handle the penalty,he proposed, attempting a compromise but still exuding his usual authoritative air

He had always been this way, insisting on acquiring what he desired at all costs

Chapter 23 


However, I was equally resolved to secure this drama for myself now more than ever since it was already within my reach

Why not let this project go to me? Let’s not compete over it, shall we?I reasoned

If toughness wouldn’t work, then it was time for a softer approach

To persuade him, I playfully wrapped my arm around his neck, mimicking Nora’s flirtatious tone

A coldness settled in his eyes as I reached out. The moment my hand brushed the back of his neck, a barely perceptible tremor ran through him

He looked at me with a halfsmile, and for some reason, the man who always had cold words for me was exceptionally patient tonight

*I can give you anything else with ease, but I never back down in business. And I particularly hate being manipulated,he stated, unwilling to budge from his stance

Frustration bubbled inside me

I withdrew my hand, pretending to be angry. Holmes Group has plenty of projects. Missing out on this small one won’t make a difference. You’re clearly doing this for Nora, that bitch!” 

So what if Lam? Does that make you jealous?he challenged

It’s exactly because I know your motive that I’m even less likely to hand it over. Gordon, there’s no point in discussing this further.” 

Despite reassuring myself to remain indifferent, his admission still struck me sharply, like a needle 

stabbing my heart

Anyway, I had the contract, and it was already effective. Everything was set in stone

Suddenly tired of the argument, I pushed him away and turned to leave the private room with my bag in 


As I started to pull back, his hand unexpectedly closed around mine. His voice turned noticeably colder
