Silence hung over the study when Eloise sent him another text. Exclusive © content by N(ô)ve/l/Drama.Org.

"If you want the painting, then you'll meetin Whispering Pines Barista at 5 p.m." His grip on his phone tightened when he read the text. His face grew grim as well.

Floyd saw the changes in his boss's expression. He couldn't resist and asked, "What's the matter, Mr. Ivor?" "See for yourself." Ivor tossed the phone to him. "Eloise sent these texts to me." Floyd lowered his head and read a couple of messages. He then furrowed his brow.

"Something's off. This stinks to high heaven, Mr. Ivor. Your painting was just damaged not long ago, and yet she got wind of it in no time.

Then he thought to himself. 'In fact, I half-expected Eloise to state explicitly that she wants to meet with Ivor.

"Understood, Mr. Ivor. My lips are sealed. I never let Ms. Bonnie finchout about this frThat's a frommenie promise.

With that, he made the gesture of zipping his lips. S "Okay." Ivor responded faintly. Then he lowered his head and continued to go through sdocuments.

It was still early. So, he'd finish up his work before meeting Eloise.

Later, he showed up at Whispering Pines Barista at 5 p.m., as promised.

Eloise was sitting by the window. She saw Ivor, who was as stunning as he was enchanting. She couldn't help but look mesmerized. 'This is the man I fell in love with. He's just so handsand incredible.
