for his looks or power.”

“And?” Alexander prodded, his gaze in the rearview mirror deep and meaningful, making Sebastian’s mouth twitch slightly.

“endearing” from Mr. Windsor was a

rarity indeed.

Alexander’s gaze remained fixed on Isabella, who looked as vulnerable as a kitten while squatting down.

Once she had finished peeling the potatoes, Isabella struggled to stand up, her legs numb from crouching too long, nearly causing her to stumble.

A pair of strong hands steadied her, and turning around, she saw a young man wearing a baseball cap standing behind her.

“The family mansion called, asking you to return tonight.”

“It must be grandfather’s health again.” Alexander’s irritation grew. Through the glass, he glared fiercely in Isabella’s direction, ordering Sebastian to drive

away.

“By the way, about the investigation into Isabella I asked for last time, what did you find?”

Rumors swirled, predicting her doom, yet she effortlessly transformed into the cherished wife he seemingly couldn’t bear to part with for even a moment, as if wishing to keep her in his pocket or tethered to his side at all times. Isabella Sterling quirked a l*p, “A mere two billion, I shall return it then…” The man leaned in, his charm palpable, “And how do you propose to repay? With your heart, or something more tangible?” Since taking residence at The Windsor, Mr. Alexander’s incurable condition miraculously improved. He ate well, worked tirelessly, his demeanor blooming like spring peaches, heart swelling with joy, capable of sleeping soundly for three days straight without a care. Until one day, someone unwittingly stumbled upon the lady’s secrets. The top hacker shaking the core of Caloria was her! The financial tycoon whose name echoed around the globe was her! The prodigious healer with the golden touch was her, her, and again her… The elite ladies of high society wept, their makeup smeared, as they faced a fearsome rival. “You go first, I’ll retreat!” In Riverdale, where a mere stomp of Mr. Alexander’s foot could cause a tremor, he famously said, “A king does not live off his wife, unless she is overwhelmingly beautiful!”
