His Nanny Mate Chapter 261 By Eve Above Story

Chapter 261 Chapter 9 Giving Up On Dream

Ella

“I’m the son of the city’s most influential mafia boss.” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I had stepped into this city with a single purpose-to fight against the malignant tumor that was the mafia. Not with them And now, here I was, face to face with the son of the most influential mob boss in the area. And he was my client.

“Well?” he asked, his lips curling up into a smirk at the corners. “We have client-lawyer confidentiality. You know the truth now. I told you that there was more to worry about than my infidelity.”

“Oh god,” Ema said, sounding surprised. “A mafia boss? Can it get any worse?”

“At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if it does somehow get worse,” I replied. I swallowed. My mind raced. I knew how the mafia worked, at least to a certain extent. I knew, at the very least, that it was dangerous to go against them. That was why Mr. Henderson was so insistent on me taking Logan on as a client. He was afraid.

Logan did bribe my boss with that nice Rolex watch, but he also intimidated him. And now I was trapped in the middle of it all. I had a choice to make: risk my life and my job and pull out of the case, or risk those things anyway and stay working at Logan’s lawyer.

“I won’t do it, Logan,” I said firmly, drawing upon every ounce of resolve I had. “I won’t work for the mafia. I came here, to this city, because it needs good lawyers… not crooked ones. I can’t let myself be caught in your webs of deceit.”

He just leaned back, a hint of a smirk touching his lips, making the room’s ambient lighting seem a tad dimmer.

“This case, Ella,” he said slowly, “is completely legal. I’m branching out-finance, real estate, technology. My attempts to legitimize some parts of our family business.”

That explained why he had so many seemingly unrelated businesses. Money laundering, likely. I didn’t believe for a second that he wanted to ‘legitimize’ anything.

I raised a skeptical eyebrow. “And I’m supposed to believe you’ve turned over a new leaf? I’m sure you have a plethora of other illegal businesses as well.”

With a swiftness that came from years of refined instinct, I discreetly activated the recording app on my phone. If Logan gave me anything incriminating, I wanted to catch every word of it.

Logan simply smirked again, his blue eyes

flickering with a new fire within them.

“Do you mean illegal activities like drugs, murder, human trafficking, loansharking, protection rackets, and sex trafficking?” he questioned openly, his voice eerily calm.

My heart raced. This was not what I expected. He was laying everything out in the open? No euphemisms, no skirting around the topic? Just blatant admittance?

But before I could react, he reached across the table, swift as a striking snake, and snatched my phone, turning off the recording.

“There are illegal operations, yes,” he admitted. with an air of nonchalance, tossing my phone back down on the table between us. “But mostly, it’s my father and brother who are managing them these days. I’m like you, in a sense.”

I sneered, keeping my phone in my peripheral vision. “You’re nothing like me, you slimy weasel,” I hissed.

Logan simply laughed. “But you’re wrong,” he said. “I, like you, am trying to pave my own way. I could easily fall into my family’s safety net. I could turn to the illegal side of things. But I want to be different.”

I grabbed back my phone, frustration boiling over. “You think you’re being clever?” I spat, barely keeping my voice level.

Logan fixed me with a cold stare. “Don’t try to outsmart me, Ella. Right now, I’m just your client. As long as we’re still in business, you’ll answer to me. And it won’t be just once.”

He paused, the intensity of his gaze softening slightly. “Look, I just want to be upfront with you. I still hold hope for us, you know? The Moon Goddess wouldn’t have paired us otherwise.” I shot up from my seat, nearly knocking over the untouched glass of wine that sat in front of me.

“Don’t bring the Moon Goddess into this!” I growled, feeling my fangs begin to bare themselves. “It wasn’t her help-it was her misjudgment. My goal in this city was to stand against the likes of you. I refuse to be your puppet. And I reject you as my mate.”

The air between us was electric, the tension palpable. Logan, too, stood up, his tall frame casting a shadow over me.

“Dreams? You came to this city for your dreams? For justice? So, what now? You’re leaving just because things aren’t going the way you planned?”

With a sense of finality, I snatched our contract from the table, tearing it up into shreds and letting them fall onto his plate. A few shreds fluttered into his wine glass, staining them red. Red like blood.

“I won’t compromise with the mafia, Logan. Even if it means giving up my dreams. Even if it means leaving.”

His voice was menacingly low. “Tearing that contract isn’t the end, Ella. There’s a penalty-a hefty one. And trust me, battling the mafia here? We have ties deeper than you can fathom-with the police, the courts, even your precious law firms. You can’t fight here. The war has already been won, and my side was victorious.”

I took a deep breath, steadying myself.

“I’ll pay your penalty. And if it comes to it, I’ll leave this city.”

He watched as I made my way to the exit, a mixture of amusement and admiration in his eyes. But as the door swung closed behind me, I could feel my hands trembling. What had I just done?

Emerging from the restaurant, the cold night air hit my face, a stark contrast from the now- stifling atmosphere that I had just escaped. The streets were emptier now, a haunting silence save for the distant echo of footsteps and voices.

I was already paranoid. As I walked, I kept glancing over my shoulder, as though Logan. would have already sent goons after me to do his bidding. I had disobeyed a son of a mafia boss, and I had seen plenty of movies and heard plenty of stories about what happens to people who dared to do that.

“I’m worried,” Ema said. “He’s not trustworthy. Men like him…”

“I know,” I answered, shaking my head. “I’ve heard the stories.”

However, no one ever came. Not yet, at least. As I walked, a weight in my chest and a whirlwind of thoughts in my head. A few blocks away, I slipped into a small alley and leaned back against the brick wall, staring up at the crescent moon in the sky as my racing heart began to settle.

It was like a smile, a jeer from the Moon Goddess. I wanted to shake my fist at it and yell for being given the fate of such a horrible mate.

A bitter laugh escaped my lips. “Why, Moon Goddess?” I murmured, shaking my head. “Of all the people in this vast, overpopulated world… why him? Is this a cruel joke? A test of some sort?”

The night remained silent, the moon offering no answers and no comfort. The uncertain dawn of tomorrow loomed ahead. But for now, I took solace in the one thing I was sure of: my unwavering resolve.

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.
