On the other hand, Norman’s complaint about his back pain was just an excuse

He had heard some news and immediately returned to his room, asking his secretary, Has Wesley really boarded the ship?” 

Vincent saw a figure that looked very much like him, but he wasn’t entirely sure.” 

Norman laughed bitterly

He’s even keeping a secret while attending our own family’s banquets. What’s making him so afraid to show his face? Truly, he’s been spoiled by his mother!” 

He ordered, Send someone to find him!” 

The secretary nodded. Yes.” 

Norman paused for a moment. Wait, do it discreetly, don’t alert anyone.” 

Just in case Wesley had his plans, Norman didn’t want to hold him back

The secretary replied, Understood.” 

Still feeling uneasy, Norman walked toward the room where the poker game was happening

That room was now in a brief silence

Charles claimed Emelie

William’s gaze shifted to Emelie

Behind him was a floor lamp, casting shadows that obscured his expression

No one could tell what he was thinking at that moment

Emelie’s breath caught for a moment

Everything hung on his decision. If he nodded, she would be at his mercy tonight

No, she couldn’t rely on this man. Relying on him meant having no hope

Suddenly, Emelie smiled and took a hesitant step forward

Hmm? I wonder what the bosses are talking about. I can also play poker. Why don’t you add me in?” 

Charles looked at her with a sarcastic smile. You want to join the table, too?”

His remark was clearly mocking her inability to understand her status

Emelie pretended not to understand and casually said, My poker skills are not bad. I should be qualified to be a playing partner for the bosses.” 

Charles leaned back in his chair with a relaxed demeanor and said, Well then, tell us, who do you think should give up their seat for you here?” 

Seated at the table were the capital tycoon from the Middleton family in Capebatt City, the venture capitalist from the Swanson family in Weston, the real estate tycoon from the Davis family in Calmcrest, and the technology giant from the Collins family in Placidville

As a woman who was brought here, who did she think should step down for her

William’s seat directly faced the door, and Emelie couldn’t help but look at him

She actually wanted him to step down, preferably straight off the ship and into oblivion

Before today, she didn’t think William would stoop to this level

Marriages really could turn sour quickly

What are you looking at me for?William asked calmly. Do you have something to say?” 

Secretary Hoven can take my place.Bryan stood up, buttoning his suit jacket

I’m a bit tired of playing. Patricia, accompany me for a drink.” 

Emelie was most grateful to the brothers from the Swanson family

Charles noticed her title and raised an eyebrow. Secretary?He glanced at William with interest, then nodded. Come.” 

Emelie took a seat

The game quickly started, and William was the first in turn, casually raising the chips

Emelie looked at her hand and said, I’ll call.” 

At first, everyone was just playing for fun, not really taking it seriously, with winning or losing not mattering much

But with Emelie joining, she played with great focus, winning hand after hand

A worthy opponent can spark one’s competitive drive

As they kept playing, everyone started to get serious. The poker table fell silent, with only the sound of chips clinking

Bryan stood behind Emelie with a glass of wine

William raised his bet and looked at Emelle across from him

She appeared very focused, with her eyelashes slightly lowered

Charles folded his hand

Emelie confidently declared, All in.” 

Thomas Collins chuckled. Why is Charles folding just before Ms. Hoven goes all in?” 

Charles didn’t say anything. He bit his tongue and glanced at Emelle. He then grinned and nodded

Let’s continue.” 

In the second round, Emelie played just as smoothly

William remarked, Are you counting cards?” 

Counting cards meant remembering every card played by each player, what was taken back, and figuring out what cards each player might hold in their hand and how to play to win

The great thing about poker as a pastime was that some people played it casually while others used their brains

Charles chuckled. Ms. Hoven has a good mind.” 

Emelie’s gaze flickered slightly. She had played so diligently, waiting for his acknowledgment
