Chapter 1558 Romantic Rival Appears
Stardom Corporation was a multinational conglomerate. Its net worth was at least ten times what the Constantines’ business was worth. Stardom used to be a small entertainment company, but thanks to Louie, it was now developed into a big and successful company.
Lucy had just returned home. She came to the living room and saw her father looking distressed as he sat on the couch. She took a seat beside him and promised, “Don’t worry, Dad. I’ll marry him, I promise. Then, we won’t have to worry about the business anymore.” “You have to do whatever you can. They say he’s dating one of his female artists.”
“Bah, she’s merely his plaything, I’m sure. Anyway, I ain’t worried much about that. I’ll just have to make sure he won’t sleep around once we’re married.” She was a broad-minded woman. She didn’t expect Louie to keep his chastity since she had also slept around. All she wanted was to be his wife, as he was the man she loved.
“I’ll talk to them tomorrow.” She wasn’t planning on talking to Louie. Instead, she wanted to see Eva, for she was the one standing between her and Louie.
When Eva woke up the next morning, Louie was already gone, but there was a slip of paper with a message written on it lying before her bed. The message read, ‘Don’t forget to have your breakfast.’
She got out of bed and went to the dining room. A smile crept on her face when she noticed a set of breakfast was already placed on the table. All her life, she was used to living by herself, but now that she had someone taking care of her, it surprisingly felt nice. Just when she was about to have breakfast, her phone rang.
She picked it up. “Who’s this?” “Miss Duncan, I would like to talk to you,” a woman said imperiously. Oh, it’s Lucy. Eva then replied, “Sorry, I don’t have time.”
“It won’t take long, Miss Duncan. It’ll only be half an hour. I’ll be waiting for you in the coffee shop right outside your neighborhood.” With that, Lucy hung up.
Eva stared at the breakfast on the table, sighing. Why does she want to talk to me? Reluctantly, she went to meet up with Lucy. Eva saw her in the coffee shop and figured she must have dressed herself up for the occasion. Lucy was quite a beauty, but not as beautiful as Eva. Everyone knew Eva as the most beautiful woman in the community. She looked just like a goddess, and most people didn’t have looks of her level.
Lucy stared at her with envy hidden deep in her eyes. “Miss Duncan, I heard you’re living with Louie. Do you wish to marry him?” She cut to the chase.
Eva mused for a moment and nodded. “I do have that idea, yes.”
“I would advise you to give it up. Our marriage arrangement is bound by law. You’re the homewrecker in our relationship. Should your fans know you seduced my fiancé, that’ll be it for your career.”
The look on Eva’s face changed slightly. “Mind your tongue. You two haven’t even married yet, so I’m not a home-wrecker.”
“We will be married soon, though. What will you do when that happens, Miss Duncan?”
“What are you trying to say?” Fury was starting to boil within Eva.
“I’m telling you to leave him.”
“What makes you think you can do that?” Eva narrowed her eyes. Lucy had been bossy from the moment they met. Eva might be a patient woman, but this was a bit too much, even for her.
“Do you have any idea what Louie has to sacrifice just to date you? Twenty percent of his company’s shares. That’s astronomical. Unless he marries me, my family reserves the right to claim our shares in the company.”
Silence took Eva.
“Do you really think you’re worth that much? If his company runs into trouble, all his love for you will turn into resentment. Men like Louie love nothing more than their work,” Lucy sneered. “He doesn’t love you as much as he loves his work.”
