The Alpha and His Contract Luna (Lauren) novel Chapter 6

“That’s not gonna work” I tell the man in front of me authoritatively.

“It’s the best we can offer you Miss Smith” he replies immediately. Almost arrogantly.

I’ve been in this meeting room for about two hours. We weren’t getting anywhere. I was beginning to get impatient.

I stare at William, the vice-president of Majestic ltd. It was a textile company that Claire wanted us to partner with.

‘He’s trying to rip us off’ Blue mumbles, irritated.

It was something I had already figured out. There was just something about the way he looked at me. As if he saw me as someone beneath him.

Someone unworthy of leading a successful company. Like I was dumb somehow and he saw no problem with over pricing us.

My guess is that he was the type of man raised to believe women should worship the ground they walked on.

That women couldn’t lead. Women couldn’t become successful on their own. That a woman’s sole purpose is to do men’s bidding and raise kids. That they were to be seen and not heard.

I hated that type of stereotype. I hated men who looked down on women. I have no idea why the hell Claire chose him, but I was done with his bullshit.

I stand up from my seat. “Then we’re done here”

I wasn’t going to waste my time anymore. I could find some other better company. Plus I saw no problem with the textile company we were currently dealing with.

“Wait, Miss Smith. I’m sure we can negotiate a better deal” he says with a slimy smile.

He truly thought I was stupid. I could see through his fucking smile. What was hidden behind it. I didn’t like it one bit.

“You’ve already wasted enough of my time”

I don’t spare him another look when I leave. I hear him calling my name but I ignore him.

I get into the elevator. Within minutes I’m getting out. I leave the building and head towards my car.

I reach it and was about to unlock it. I don’t get the chance though. A handkerchief covers my nose and within minutes I’m out.

I wake up to the sound of a car engine. I’m a bit disoriented but I get what just happened. I have been fucking kidnapped.

“You’re awake” a deep voice says.

I freeze because I know that voice. My suspicion is confirmed when I look up to find green eyes staring at me.

There isn’t a hint of emotion in them. Just a blank emotionless stare. A stare I hate because I can’t tell what he’s thinking.

“I don’t like being made a fool of Red. When I tell you to meet at Rosevelt I expect you to be there”

There is a hint of something dangerous in his tone. Something I should be afraid of. For some reason though, I was not.

“That’s exactly it, you told me instead of asking” I reply defiantly. “I’m not good at being told what to do”

As you’ve probably guessed. I didn’t go to meet Sebastian. That was about two days ago. I had decided that it would have been more trouble than it was worth. Getting involved with a powerhouse such as Sebastian doesn’t spell out good things for me.

I was skeptical and rightfully so. I had gotten myself involved with one alpha. Look how disastrous that ended for me. I had no idea what his proposal would be, but I was sure I didn’t want to know about it.

“And I’m not good at letting such defiance go, you should know that about me. You push me and I’ll push right back and trust me when I say, you won’t like it when I retaliate.” His says his eyes are cold and voice silky smooth.

He is calm but I know it a fucking façade. He’s a beast underneath all that suit. Blue perks up for some odd reason. I ignore her though. She is enchanted by him, but I know he’s a dangerous man.

“Where are you taking me? You do realize this is considered kidnapping right?” I ask, changing the subject.

I was treading on unfamiliar dangerous waters. One wrong move and I would probably end up in a situation I couldn’t get myself out of.
