My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 23

23 Dr. South

Jalen was taken aback, “Can you understand it?”

Just as Keira was about to reply, the introverted male colleague jumped in. “Jalen, I think she’s telling the truth.”

Jalen glared at him, “Do you two know each other?”

The colleague gave a shy smile, “I was a graduate student under Professor Miller at Oceanion University.

I was still a student last year when she joined us to work on a research project led by Professor Miller….”

Keira studied his face, trying to recall. “Luca Barker?”

Luca blushed and nodded, explaining to Jalen, “She’s the only undergraduate student that Professor Miller recruited for the project. She’s a fast reader, and she has experience with these fundamental frameworks.”

But Jalen still looked at her disapprovingly. “It’s just the basics. There’s no need to be so proud just because you understand it! If you’re so capable, solve the core technology issues then!”

Luca immediately chimed in, “Boss, you are asking too much of her.”

Jalen sneered, “If you don’t have what it takes, just do as you’re told. Go to the resource library and look up the most basic things. You should be ashamed of yourself!”

With that, he left.

Luca sighed, and explained to Keira, “We’ve been stuck on the core technology issues for a while. Jalen hasn’t been sleeping well for a few days, so he’s a bit grumpy. But he’s not a bad person. Don’t take his words to

heart.”

Keira wasn’t bothered.

She didn’t come to the Horton Group to make

enemies. She asked for the location of the resource

library and headed straight there.

The Horton Group’s resource library was located on the 60th floor. It was essentially a large private library, only accessible to employees of the group.

The books here covered knowledge from various

industries, including scientific research materials that weren’t accessible outside.

Keira was slightly excited. Her intuition told her that she would find what she was looking for here.

Top floor.

Lewis was dealing with several backlog files when his phone rang. It was a WhatsApp message from Old Mrs. Horton, whose ID was “Blooming Prosperity”.

“Brat, you need to have lunch with your wife today. Remember to send me a photo of you two dining

together.”

Lewis frowned.

Just as he was about to make an excuse about having a meeting, he saw Grandma’s WhatsApp nickname changed from “Blooming Prosperity” to “Fragile

Grandma Do Not Agitate”. ”

Lewis was speechless.

After staring at the nickname for a while, he ultimately

sighed in resignation and pressed the call bell on his desk.

Tom quickly stepped in. “Boss, what can I do for you?”

“Prepare two lunch sets and bring them here.”

“Sure.”

Lewis then sent a message to “Need Iron”, telling her to join him for lunch on the penthouse floor.

However, by the time the lunch was set up on the nearby table, Keira still hadn’t responded to his

message.

Lewis stood up. “Where is she?”

Tom said, “Miss Olsen? She’s in the resource library.”

Lewis made his way to the 60th floor and began to search for her amidst the rows of bookshelves.

He soon saw her and Jake, who was staring at her.

Keira was engrossed in looking through books and didn’t feel her phone vibrating.

The library had the most advanced technological resources, and she was captivated by it.

She was so engrossed in the books that she accidentally backed into someone.

“Sorry.”

When Keira turned around, she saw a familiar face.

Jake was glaring at her with mixed emotions. “Keira, you’ve been going out of your way to please Great-Grandma. Is it to get close to my uncle?”

Keira’s face darkened instantly. “It’s none of your

business.”

But Jake continued. “My uncle has steered clear of women all these years. Don’t think that by relying on your looks, you can get to him. He’s not that

superficial! Right now, he’s just getting you out of his way by giving you a redundant job!”

Keira scoffed. “So, you’re saying that you courted me for so long because you were superficial?”

Jake was taken aback!

Keira looked at the man in front of her.

He was her only friend in college.

She had seriously considered becoming his girlfriend and even wondered if she should accept his advances when he hinted that he had a surprise for her at the

graduation ceremony.

She didn’t expect things to turn out like this.

She sighed, “Jake, can’t we part on good terms?”

“No!”

Jake was suddenly agitated. I know you hate me for proposing to Isla, but I had no choice. There are many aspects to consider in an alliance between wealthy families! I have fought for you before. My mother even agreed to let me be with an ordinary person, but your status…No matter what happens, I can’t marry an illegitimate daughter! Otherwise, how can I face the Horton family in the future? I’ll become the laughingstock of Oceanion!”

Keira looked at him.

As a child she felt she couldn’t hold her head in high

because of her status.

But since she left the Olsen’s, she understood that self-respect mattered more.

She looked away. “Thank you for not marrying me.”

As she tried to leave, Jake blocked her path. “I heard that you were given a hard time by Jalen in Group One. I can arrange for you to join Group Two. I’m in charge there, and I can get capable people to guide you. I know you’re a competitive person, and you’re so clever that you’ll learn quickly. Soon, you’ll be able to stand on your own and won’t have to take on odd jobs again…”

Keira interrupted his babbling. “What’s your term?”

“Divorce your husband and be my woman.”

Jake couldn’t stand the idea of sharing her with

another man!

Every time he thought about it, he felt like he was going insane!

Keira coldly retorted, “You’re not worthy!”

“Why? Do you love your hooligan husband that much?

believe me if I told you that I could let him abandon you with just some money or a threat? How can he be better than me?”

Burning with rage, Jake grabbed Keira’s wrist and slammed her against the bookshelf.

His eyes turned red. “Or is it that you women are just like that? You slept with him, and you can’t leave him now. Is that it? If that’s the case, then let’s see who’s better, me or him!”

With that, he suddenly leaned forward and kissed her forcefully.

At the far end of the bookshelf, Lewis stood there. He had heard everything.

As he saw Jake’s inappropriate advances, his face turned livid, and he was about to step forward.

However, the petite woman suddenly kneed Jake hard between his legs!❤

As he stepped back from the pain, she slapped him

without hesitation!

“Smack!”

After slapping him, Keira was still angry, and she looked at him coldly.

“I didn’t want to hurt your pride, but since you insist on delving into it, let me tell you something. My husband is taller than you, more handsome than you, and has much better stamina than you, unlike you, who can’t even withstand me pushing you away. You should exercise more when you have the time!”

After saying this, she turned to leave, only to see Lewis in the corner ahead.

Keira was dumbfounded.

Lewis remained silent.

At that moment, Jake, doubled over in pain, shouted out angrily, “What use is his stamina? I can toy with you as I please in the company, but your husband can’t do anything!”

At his words, a male voice came in. “Who said he can’t do anything?”
