My Beloved Has Risen from Death’s Embrace Chapter 490

Chapter 490

The office fell into an awkward silence, the Instigator Leonard adjusted his clothes, cleared his throatand then turned and ran 

Xan, he thought to himself, “that’s your husband. I’m outta here, cover for me!”

HeyLeonard.”

Xannie, what are you doing here?” 

Boss, I just saw Mr. Marlowe and Mrs. Lockwood.”

Cedric was about to expose Xanthea and Leonard for eavesdropping outside, but Xanthea cut him off.

She pushed Onion away, her slender, beautiful fingers pressed against his chest, taking the offensive, “You have the nerve to ask me why 

I’m here? If I hadn’t come, how would I have discovered you, a married man, flirting with some siren out here?!

Orion’s gaze faltered, confusion knitting between his pretty brows.

“Siren?” 

Mm–hmm.”

“Aren’t you the siren?”

“Stop playing dumb. I’m talking about that woman who ran off super fast! I heard her whole love confession to you!”

“Confession?”

The confusion in Orion’s eyes deepened.

“Still pretending!”

I have no idea. I was on call.”

Orion picked up a tiny Bluetooth earpiece from the desk. Xanthea was stunned at that, “On call? But I didn’t hear you talking?”

“I can vouch for that!” Beside themCedric quietly raised his phone.

“The boss was listening to me report last quarto

sales figures for the company. The call ended just a minute ago.”

Xanthea saw on his call logindeed, a call that lasted for quite a while and had just ended; she was speechless.

So, someone poured their heart out to himand he didn’t hear a word? No wonder his last response was something completely unrelated like “You’re blocking the sunlight.”

Pfft.

Xanthea wanted to laugh but then remembered what Seb had told her. Many socialites had visited Willowdale hoping to catch his

ร confession, he asked who they were. attention. Just when they thought the moment was ripe for 

was just too obtuse

It was hard to say whether they were pitiful or if he

Even though she knew he wouldn’t care even if he heard the confessionhow could she let go of such an opportunity so easily

Usuallyit was him, cunning and petty, catching her in traps and then punishing her severely. Now, it was finally her turn to have the upper hand

“Hmph!” Xanthea snortedtapping her finger on his chestcommanding, “Even though you didn’t hear it, I did. If it weren’t for you always attracting those butterflies. Ah!”

Before she could finish, he pulled her tightly into his arms.

Orion gently rubbed his cheek against hers, which carried a faint chill, his laughter clear and charming, Getting jealous, darling?”

“Yeah, are you proud of yourself?” 

Orion didn’t respond, his chest trembling with silent laughter, his brows lightly raised, enjoying her jealousy.

?! Xanthea exclaimed, “You’re really proud? Feeling great because someone so outstanding confessed to you, huh?” 

Yes, but not because of the confession, but because his little siren was jealous

“Not at all.”

“Stop pretending, you’re thrilled! I heard it all, she has advantages I don’t have, something about being the heiress of MR Group, the current vice president? She can assist you in business, even help you solve problems you encounter and whatnot.”

“I don’t need anyone else to solve business problems for me.” Orion chuckled softly, his warm breath caressing her sensitive ear, “just need you, my dear, to help me solve physical needs.”

Xanthea’s face flushed with embarrassment, pinching his solid abscalling him dirty old man in her mind!
