Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 1429
Zachary replied nonchalantly, “Actually, you don’t need to tire yourself out since others are around to prepare our meal.”
“What? Are you telling me to stay away from the kitchen because of my subpar culinary skills?” Charlotte brought up something else for a change of mood.
“You know what? Just cook whenever you feel like it. I’ll finish everything you make.”
Zachary was no longer the arrogant and indifferent man—he had no intention to spend the last moments of his life arguing with the ones he held dear in life.
It’s fine as long as she’s around to keep me company. As awful as it might taste, I’ll finish everything she cooks.
“Speaking of which, you’re not really against the idea of them getting into a relationship with one another, are you?” Shortly after she directed the question at him, she took a peek at Lupine and Ben as well as Morgan and Marino.
Zachary rolled his eyes and asked rhetorically, “Do I really have a say when you’re the one in charge of Northridge, Southridge, and the family?”
“You’re right, but are you against the idea of them getting into a relationship?” Charlotte guffawed in a mischievous manner.
Halfway through their conversation, Zachary mentioned something in a suggestive tone, “Well, you need to show your sincerity if you want me to agree to it.”
Unaware of the filthy thoughts he had in mind, she asked, “What do you want?”
“What do you think?” Zachary leaned over in an intimate manner and started running his fingers across her arms.
Once she returned to her senses, she stuttered, “Y-You! There’s no way I’m allowing it since you’re not fully recovered yet!”
“Go ahead and see for yourself if I have fully recovered or not!”
He pressed her hands against his pecs, allowing her to feel his heartbeat.
“Cut it out! Aren’t you aware we’re in the middle of a banquet with a lot of people around us?” Charlotte reprimanded the man with reddened cheeks.
“I’m going to teach you a lesson to behave yourself once we’re back in the room.”
Zachary pinched her face before turning around to savor his meal.
It was a great night for everyone. As the adults continued drinking after the meal, the children gathered around for some fun in the courtyard.
Marino and Morgan, who had tagged along to keep an eye on the children, couldn’t stop themselves from flirting around with one another.
On the other hand, Ben was next to Lupine throughout the banquet. Occasionally, he would turn around to check on Zachary.
Zachary thought it was too much of a hassle for Ben to tend to him and his significant half at the same time. Thus, he said, “Just take good care of our guests and leave me alone.”
“Thank you so much, Mr. Nacht!” Ben was thrilled and thought Zachary was also a caring employer at times.
“Lupine, how are you feeling?” Charlotte asked concernedly.
“I’m doing fine, Ms. Lindberg. You’re the one who seems to have lost quite some weight.”
“Are you serious?” Charlotte started examining her face when she heard the remark.
Zachary interrupted the duo’s conversation and said, “It might have something to do with her exhausting herself for my sake over the past few weeks. She hadn’t been eating properly since oatmeal was the only thing available for us.”
“Shall we forget about it since you no longer have to consume those on a daily basis? With that being said, you’re not really supposed to have too much greasy food. Most importantly, you’re not allowed to drink,” Charlotte warned.
“See? She’s going to nag on me over something trivial again! How have you guys been dealing with her all this while? Is she different in front of you?” Zachary directed the question at Lupine.
Lupine defended Charlotte, “I’m sure she’s merely trying to remind you to take good care of yourself. She’s one of the most caring employers out there.”
“Mr. Nacht is a pretty great employer as well,” Ben remarked when it had nothing to do with him. As a result, Lupine turned around and shot daggers at him.
What’s wrong with him? Is he trying to prove he has a better employer than me? Is it even necessary?
Aware he was the one at fault, Ben turned around and looked elsewhere to avoid the confrontation awaiting him.
Charlotte couldn’t resist the urge to laugh because of the duo’s interaction. Similarly, Zachary played along with Charlotte and remarked, “At the end of the day, it’s doesn’t really matter since we’re a family.”
“What are you talking about?” Charlotte asked in a sarcastic manner, but she was all smiles.
Instead of answering her question, Zachary held her firmly in his arms and kissed her in front of others.
