My Bossy CEO Husband Chapter 14 by I. MALCOM. Wendy stayed in the hospital for three days after making a call to Carter Williams to ask for a leave. The director was a little unhappy about it, but after learning that it had been her who had saved the little girl during the incident onsite, he had immediately changed his tune and told her to get a proper rest. As it turned out, the horse that had gone out of control that day belonged to the crew of The Story of Concubine lvanka. The animal had almost trampled the child to death, and the whole situation had caused extreme distress to everyone involved in the project. Such news would be disadvantageous to the show’s publicity. Worst of all was that the child happened to be the CEO of Oliver International Group’s daughter. To say that Carter had been terrified of the implications would be an understatement. It was the little princess of the Oliver family! Everyone in the industry was aware that the girl was the apple of the eye of the conglomerate, especially among the elders of the family. If even a single hair on her head had been damaged, Ryan’s parents would definitely raze the whole site until it turned to dust. How much more if she had actually died that day? : Wendy Finch had practically saved the crew and the show itself. With that in mind, Carter had decided to give her the whole week off, as well as a big, fat red envelope, telling her to buy some tonics to strengthen her body. And so it was that three days passed. Ryan and Precious had never shown up to the hospital again. Wendy was relieved by that, but she noticed that Ray was a little disappointed. Whenever the door to the ward opened, her son would immediately look up to see who had come. And every time he found that it was just the doctor or the nurses, his face would immediately fall. She could tell that the little boy was waiting for Precious, even though Ray did not express himself with words. He had always been a quiet child. He was used to being by himself and was never comfortable with making friends. Which was why Wendy had never expected him to take a liking to the little girl. Meanwhile, in the Ensfield…. The place had been built by Oliver Group, and it was considered as the most luxurious villa district in Ywood. There were only eighteen villas in total within the area, and each one cost an astronomical amount of money. Of course, Ryan’s residence was the most expensive of all. At this moment, his villa was in a turmoil. Precious was at the landing of the second floor, smashing everything she could get her hands on, including a few antiques porcelain. Pieces of broken china were littered all over the floor, and the servants were running back and forth in alarm. “Young Lady, be careful not to hurt yourself!”. “Don’t come closer, all of you!”. The staff had no choice but to remain downstairs, helpless with their anxiety. “Precious, won’t you come down first?”. “No”. “How about grabbing a bite to eat? I asked the kitchen staff to prepare your favorite braised pork, some braised spareribs, and your favorite scallop. They even made your favorite porridge. Precious stomach growled at his words, but she stubbornly held her ground. “I don’t want to eat!”. “Don’t be like this. You haven’t eaten for the entire day!”. “I won’t eat!”. Luke had no ch oice but to ca ll his brother. “Ryan, come back quickly. There’s really nothing I can do! Precious has been throwing a tant rum ever since you left, and it’s different from all those times in the past

She’s not joki ng this time around. She’s practically destroying the house! You need to get here right now!” . Ryan did just that, and h e returned to a house tha t was indeed in shambles. “Preci ous Ol iver!” . He yelled w ith a formi dable frown. The girl w as not faz ed at all. The moment she saw her father, she clung to the second floor bannister and cried even lo uder, pointing at him and stamping her feet. “You are a tyrant! Daddy, you are a tyrant! I promised Beautiful Aunt ie that I will go to the hospital to see her, and I also promised Ray mond Finch that I will play with him! How can you not let me go out?” . She bawled as th e words slipped out of her mouth. “Why are you such a bully?! I even praised you in front o f Beautiful Auntie! And I have human rights! You may be m y guardian, but you can’t restrict my freedom like this!” . Ryan’s ex pression t urned icy. “Get down here!” . “ N o” . “Precious Oliver!” Precious trembled at his command, but she still refused to give in. She took off her s hoes and climbed o ver the bannister. “Precious! That’s dangerous! Jus t use the stairs, the stairs!” L uke’s head was swirling in panic. “No” The girl closed her eye s dramatically. “If you don’t allow me to see Beautiful Auntie, I will jump down from here!” . Her declaration was met with silence. Luke had go ne pale. The second floor was so high up, and the re were shards of glass and porcelain everywhere. He knew that his niece was terrified of pain, and a p art of him was anticipating the possibility that she m ight relinquish her hold on the bannister out of fear. His heart was caught in h is throat and he turned to look at Ryan desperately. “Brother! Bro ther, please do something!” . Ryan’s expressio n remained cold and unrelenting. “For the last time, Precious Oliver, co me down from there!” . “ No !” . Ryan snee red at his daughter. “Then keep crying and th reatening us. It’s not li ke you can do much else. “I can ju mp off fr om here!” . Her fath er said nothing. The father and th e daughter were n ow in a stalemate. A minute passed i n quiet tension, b efore Ryan sighed. He loosened his tie with irritation and looked u p at the trembling girl. He then looked at his brother and order ed, “Give Leo a call and asked if Wendy has been discharged from the hospital. Me ani ng… . Precious’s threats worke d! Wendy had, in fact, already been discharged. Roger had come to pick her and R aymond up, but they did not driv e back to the apartment building. Instead, the car took a turn and stopped at a s mall park near the area. “Eh? Rog er, where are we?” . “Just some park. ” He killed the engine and produced two grocery bags from the trunk. “What’s thi s?” Roger j ust smiled

“You’ve been in the hospital for three days, and I’m sure it hasn’t b een easy. Now that you’re out, of course we have to celebrate. Don’t yo u like barbecue the most? Let’s have an open-air barbeque right here. “Ah, is that okay t hough? This is a pub lic park after all. Roger took out a grill and settle d it on the lawn. “The park is on the early stages of renovation, so this should be fine. Besides, I’ve seen many people c oming here and doing the exact same thing recently. “Oh, that’s great then. I’m quite fed up with all the hospital food I’ve had to consume lat ely. I can finally eat something scrumptious!” . They happily u npacked all th e ingredients. Roger had it all tak en care of. Not only had he brought food for cooking, but he had also made sure to bring all the supplies they might need, including two barrels of fresh water. They were just starting to lig ht up the grill when two figur es approached from a distance. Ryan was still in his black business s uit, but the little girl in his arms w as holding a bunch of colorful flowers. They painted such a contra sting sight that Wendy fou nd herself staring at them. What was goi ng on? She w as confused. Roger ru shed to explain. “Ryan sent me a message a few minutes ago, saying that Precious wanted to see you, but he didn’t find you in the hospital or back in your home. He ask ed where you were and I just told him without thinking…Wendy, do you mind?” . She was a t a loss for words. Regardless of whether she minded or not, it was pre tty useless at this point. She didn’t know if she shoul d cry in frustration or laug h at the absurdity of it all. She had thought she w ould never see Ryan o r his daughter again. “I heard Precious has been bawling and was adamant to see you. “Well, I g uess it’s fine then. “Beaut iful A untie!” . Precious wriggled her way out of h er father’s arms and trotted over to Wendy, offering her the flowers. “Beautiful Auntie, congratulations on getting discharged from the hospital! I miss you so much. Didn’t you miss me?” . Wendy took the flow ers and ruffled the little girl’s hair. “Yes , I did. Precious grinned brightly. The truth was that Wendy had truly gro wn fond of the girl. But that greeting was the extent of their conversation, and it was followed by an aw kward silence as they looked at each other. Fortunately, i t was time to prepare dinner. Wendy proceed ed to skewer t he vegetables. “Mr. Oliver, “ she said in a polite tone. “Have you and your daughter had dinner yet? We’re about to make some barbecue. How about having some together with us?” . “Okay,” Ryan r eplied
