His Nanny Mate Chapter 260 By Eve Above Story

Chapter 260 Chapter 8: Least Of Worries


The frosted glass door to Mr. Henderson’s office opened, revealing the man himself. Upon seeing Logan, I felt Ema’s restlessness inside of me. His scent overwhelmed the both of us, instinct urging us to overreact and move closer to him. But I felt her suppress it. She was just as displeased with him as I was.

Mr. Henderson looked jovial and appeared to be in the midst of a spirited discussion with Logan. However, as I stood in the doorway and looked back and forth between the two men, I could sense a shift in the dynamic. Behind Mr. Henderson’s pleasant exterior, his eyebrows were knit tightly together and his eyes flashed with anxiety.

“Ella,” he began, his voice tight. “Can I have al word?” Logan reclined comfortably on the plush couch, looking surprisingly unperturbed by the tension in the room. “Should I leave?” he asked.

“No, no, you stay here,” Mr. Henderson replied, flashing a bright smile.

Mr. Henderson ushered me into a smaller adjacent conference room, closing the door. behind us. The thick glass muffled Logan’s voice as he chatted on the phone. It was a stark contrast to the high-pitched tone that Mr. Henderson now adopted, now that we were alone. “Ella,” he whispered frantically. “What the hell is wrong with you?”

I was a bit taken aback. “Pardon, sir?” I murmured, raising my eyebrows.

Mr. Henderson shot me an angry glare. “Don’t play coy with me, Ella,” he hissed. “I’ve been kinder to you than I should be, all because of who your father is. You have to take this case, which, might I add, just fell into your ungrateful little lap. Do you understand the gravity of this situation?”

“And if I don’t take it?” I asked, choosing to ignore Mr. Henderson’s angry remarks.

“If you don’t, you can find another firm to work for. You’re embarrassing not just yourself, but all of us. My partners are already foaming at the mouth over this client being handed to you on a silver platter. I’ll be on the platter next, served up like a fat pig with an apple in my mouth, if you don’t take it.”

My pulse quickened, still taken aback by my boss’s change in attitude. He had never been. this cruel to me before. “I didn’t know that choosing not to work on this case would lead to an ultimatum, sir.”

His face turned an alarming shade of red. “It’s not about Logan. It’s about the influence he and his… associates hold. If you don’t cooperate, I really will have to ask you to leave the company.”

I felt like I had been punched in the gut. “Are you threatening to fire me?”

He pinched the bridge of his nose, inhaling deeply. “I wish it didn’t have to come to this,” he murmured, his face overtaken now by sympathy. “But he’s too important, Ella. And frankly, I’m out of options.”

Before I could respond, Mr. Henderson placed his hand on the doorknob. “It’s your choice,” he hissed, narrowing his eyes. “Your choice and your consequences.”

As Mr. Henderson opened the door, Logan’s firm gaze instantly met mine. There was a new depth to his eyes, one that I hadn’t noticed before – a mix of understanding and something more profound, darker.

“Mr. Henderson,” he interjected smoothly, rising. from his seat. “I really need Ella’s expertise. Trust me, you want her on this case.”

“I’m well aware, Mr. Barrett,” Mr. Henderson replied, putting on another jovial smile. “We’re very lucky to have your business at all. But, alas, youngsters…”

Logan chuckled. “I know,” he said. “Ella is full of fire, I’ll give her that. That’s why I really need her on my team.”

I took a deep breath and tried to quell the fury that was beginning to bubble up inside of me. These two men were talking about me as though I wasn’t even standing right there in front of them, like I was a prize horse at auction.

In my eyes, Logan was nothing but an arrogant bastard who saw women as transactions, and nothing more. He was a jerk, a chauvinist, an elitist… The list could have gone on and on.

But my dream job was slipping through my fingers. I had come to the city to make a name for myself, without my family’s influence. Losing this position would set me back significantly. I didn’t want to go crawling back to my parents. I didn’t want to become the next CEO of WereCorp.

“Well, I’ll leave you two to discuss your options,” Mr. Henderson said, checking his watch. It was then that I noticed that his watch was new, a Rolex. He never wore stuff like that. I glanced over to the floor near his desk, and felt my heart sink upon seeing the little bag with tissue paper sticking out of it. Was Logan bribing him? For me?

Mr. Henderson left. The room was silent, filled by a heavy tension that hung in the air.

“Well?” Logan asked, standing to his full height, towering over me. The room suddenly felt all too cramped. “What do you say, Miss Morgan?”

After what felt like an eternity, I managed a response.

“Fine,” I whispered, letting out an exasperated sigh. “I’ll take your case. But once this is over, you and I, Mr. Barrett, are done professionally.” Logan nodded, the corner of his mouth lifting slightly, hinting at a smirk. “Understood.”

With that settled, we moved on to sign a confidentiality agreement. Every clause and term weighed heavily on my heart, but I put pen to paper, locking myself into this strange, high-stakes alliance with a man who I had only met a few days ago but already despised with every fiber of my being.

Hours later, my phone vibrated, breaking me out of a trance. Logan’s number flashed on the screen. “Ella, join me for dinner? There’s a small place I want to show you.”

I hesitated before typing back, “Why should I?”

A moment later, he replied, “Because it’s not like last night. Trust me. Besides, I want to get started on my case. Let’s discuss.”

Still skeptical, I arrived at the venue he had mentioned a little while later. The restaurant was inconspicuous, nestled between two bigger establishments. The exterior was humble, but the aroma wafting out hinted at delicious possibilities inside.

It was, indeed, much different from the restaurant from last night. This one seemed family-owned.

When I walked in, I was immediately hit with a wall of garlic and rosemary. It smelled delectable. Huge pizzas on wooden boards were carried out to waiting families. Soft Italian music played in the background, their notes punctuated by the sweet sound of trilling voices and mandolins. I could hear what sounded like two people arguing in the kitchen in thick accents.

Logan sat at a red leather booth in the corner, waiting. There were two glasses of red wine in front of him, one for him and one for me. “You made it,” he commented with a hint of surprise as I walked up to him.

I raised an eyebrow and slid into the seat across from him. “I want to get this case over with just as much as you do,” I said, glancing around. “This place seems nice. Nicer than yesterday.”

He chuckled. “I haven’t brought anyone here before. Not even family.” I scoffed. “Let me guess, you usually prefer those showy, overpriced places that offer style over substance?”

Logan shook his head, looking almost. vulnerable. “I never learned to share. Not my secrets, not my vulnerabilities. Not even places like this.”

I tilted my head, considering him. “Why?”

He looked down at me, his blue eyes piercing into mine. “Remember when I said there’s something worse than my infidelity you should be worried about?”

A cold shiver ran down my spine. “Yes… and?”

He took a deep breath, his face serious.

“I’m the son of the city’s most influential mafia boss.”

His Nanny Mate (Moana and Edrick Morgan)

I’m a new grad human in huge debt, and cheated by my Omega boyfriend. When I got wasted in a bar, I didn’t expect to have the best sex ever. And the very next morning, I also didn’t expect to wake up and find my One-Night-Stand hookup was my ex-boyfriend's Alpha billionaire BOSS…. How things are going to turn out after I accidentally became his 5-year-old daughter's live-in nanny? ____________   How did this happen? How did I wind up finally becoming employed, only for it to turn out that my new employer was the same person who I had a one night stand with just two nights ago? “I didn’t know that you would be the employer. If I had known, I wouldn’t have applied….” “It’s alright. I knew it was you when I hired you. I did it on purpose.” I scrunched my eyebrows together. “What do you mean?”      

His Nanny Mate (Moana and Edrick Morgan) Chapter 1 Betrayal

Moana It was a hot summer evening, and I had just spent the entire day job hunting. Finding work as a human in a world dominated by werewolves, especially in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city, wasn’t easy. Even though I had a degree in Early Childhood Education, no schools wanted to hire me because I was a human. Werewolf parents were outraged at the thought of a “worthless human” teaching their children, as if my skills, drive, and education meant nothing. So, I was now limited to service jobs, which were also unfortunately hard to come by because the job market was oversaturated with other humans who were also desperate to pay their bills. If I didn’t find a job soon, though, I would lose my apartment. My landlord had already given me a thirty-day notice. If I didn’t pay my rent -- and the three months of rent that I already owed -- by the end of the thirty days, he was going to evict me. At least I still had my boyfriend, Sam. He wasn’t extraordinarily well-off either despite being a werewolf, but at least he had a job and could pay his rent. We had been together for three years now and had known each other for five, so maybe it was time to talk about moving in together soon. As I was walking down the packed city street, a thin layer of sweat caked to my forehead from spending the day running from business to business as I tried to find someone who would hire me, I started to realize how hungry I was. I couldn’t afford to eat out, but the delicious smells coming from the restaurants I passed began to make my mouth water. One particular restaurant across the street caught my eye, but not because of the smell of food. I stopped in my tracks, my eyes widening. Inside the restaurant, right in the window, was Sam. He wasn’t alone; he was with another woman, and they were… Kissing. “You’ve gotta be fucking kidding me,” I said out loud, causing a few passersby to turn their heads and give me weird looks. Sam had told me that he was busy recently, that he had a lot of work… Was this what he was really doing? Cheating on me with some other woman? The fury bubbled up inside of me, and without thinking, I stormed across the street and toward the restaurant window. My stomach turned as I came closer. This woman was gorgeous -- basically a supermodel -- and that didn’t make me feel any better about the situation. Not only was Sam cheating on me, but he was cheating on me with someone who looked like that. She was thin, blonde, and tan with long legs, wearing a skimpy evening dress and high heels. I do get compliments on my face, body and long red hair, but in that moment, I felt so worthless as I stood there looking at Sam and his mistress. How could he do this to me? I stopped in front of the window. Neither of them even saw me standing there, they were so absorbed in their makeout session. So, I banged on the window. Sam and the mystery woman both jumped, their eyes widening when they saw me. I stormed over to the entrance and ran inside, ignoring the strange looks from the restaurant staff and customers, and ran up to where Sam and the woman sat. “How fucking dare you?!” I yelled, my hands curled up into fists at my sides. “We’ve been together for three years and you’re cheating on me?” The woman looked back and forth between Sam and I with an embarrassed expression on her face as the restaurant fell silent, but Sam’s face showed only anger and resentment. Without saying a word, Sam stood and grabbed me by the arm, dragging me out of the restaurant. He was too strong for me to resist, so I stumbled after him and back out into the busy street with tears streaming down my cheeks. “You’re making a fool of both of us, Moana,” he growled once we were outside. “I’m making a fool of us?” I replied, my voice still raised. “You’re making out with another woman in public!” Sam merely rolled his eyes and pulled me further away from the door. His werewolf eyes burned a bright orange color and his face was wrought with anger. “Control your temper,” he whispered, pushing me roughly up against the side of the building. “You’re just an ordinary human. You should feel lucky that I even entertained you for three years.” His words stung, and my vision became clouded with tears. “Why her?” I croaked as a sob caught in my throat. Sam, the man who had told me he loved me for three years, merely chuckled. “You’re useless to me,” he snarled. “She’s a Beta. Her family is incredibly wealthy and powerful, and thanks to her, I’ll be starting a new job at WereCorp next week.” WereCorp was the biggest corporation in the world. Not only did they control all of the banks, but they also developed the newest and most widely-used cryptocurrency of the 21st Century: WCoin. I never used it -- humans weren’t allowed to -- but it made a lot of werewolves extremely rich when it first came out. He continued, “What have you done for me aside from mooching off of me because you can’t even get a job of your own? You’re nothing compared to her. How dare you even question my decision to move on.” There was nothing else I could say; nothing else that could come to mind aside from getting the hell away from him. I shoved Sam away finally, pushing myself away from the wall. “Fuck you,” I growled, my rage taking over as I raised my hand and slapped him hard across the face. Passersby were looking at us now, but I didn’t care. Without another word, I turned on my heel and stormed away without looking back. As I walked numbly down the street and wiped the tears from my eyes, I thought about what Sam was like when we first met; he had been nothing more than a bullied Omega in high school with no confidence, no prospects, and no friends. I had helped him gain confidence with my love and support, and this was how he repaid me? By leaving me for some blonde, all for a job at WereCorp? Nothing angered me more than knowing that my boyfriend of three years, and best friend for five years, had left me so easily over money and power. I was still fuming when I stepped out into the intersection, too numb to look properly before crossing. Just then, I heard the sound of a car honking and looked up to see a luxury car driving straight for me. Cursing to myself, I stumbled backwards and fell into a puddle just before the car hit me. The car came to a screeching halt next to me, which was surprising since I assumed that they would just drive away after nearly hitting me, but what surprised me even more was the person who sat inside the car when the window rolled down. Edrick Morgan, CEO of WereCorp. Edrick was known not only for being the youngest CEO in the history of the company and the heir to the largest fortune in the world, but also for his stunning appearance -- and although I was incredibly hurt and angry about everything that had happened today, I couldn’t help but notice his strong jawline, his muscular shoulders and arms, and his incredibly handsome face. I opened my mouth to say something about how he had nearly hit me, but before I could, he looked me up and down and tossed a wad of cash out the window, driving away with a rev of his engine. Edrick Morgan, the CEO of WereCorp, had nearly hit me with his car… and tossed me money like I was some beggar. All werewolves really were arrogant assholes. I threw the cash on the ground and stood, cursing under my breath as I realized how soaked and dirty my clothes were. I’d have to go home and see if I could scrounge up some change to take them to the laundromat so I could continue job hunting tomorrow, but admittedly for now I just wanted to drown my sorrows. I walked for a few blocks, finally spotting a bar that seemed nice and quiet.Taking a deep breath and smoothing down my stained shirt, I walked through the doors and approached the bouncer. The bouncer narrowed his eyes at me and looked me up and down, taking in my dirty appearance sniffing the air in front of me. “No humans allowed without a member escort,” he growled, folding his arms. I frowned. “Member?” I asked. “I’m a paying customer. Just let me buy a drink.” The bouncer shook his head and began to usher me toward the door like I was some sort of nuisance. “Is this even legal?” I said, raising my voice. “You can’t just discriminate against humans like this! Is my money worthless here just because of--” “She’s with me,” a stern and clear voice suddenly said from behind. The bouncer and I both looked up and turned to see a man in a suit standing on the stairs. Edrick Morgan.
