Alison’s Identity of Romance ( Brayden Cornell ) Chapter 17

Chapter 17 Are You Sure You Want a Divorce? 

Brayden was dressed in a set of sleepwear that looked similar to Alison’s. His collar gaped slightly open, and his hair was rather messy. There was a tousled sort of beauty that made him look less cold and solemn than usual. 

At that moment, it felt like they had been transported back to the starting days of their marriage. 

Seeing the lost look in her eyes, he took the time to scan her appearance. Her face was tear- stained with the remnants of her tears still lingering on her eyelashes. 

Upon seeing that, he gulped hard. He frowned and asked, “Why were you crying?” 

“Who?” she asked in confusion. As she had woken up in the middle of the night, her mind was not fully working. Her response made her seem like she was hiding her emotions and pretending to be strong. 

He a**umed she was upset over the divorce. “Since we’re both awake, come sit with me.” 

“No.” She was exhausted. She was only awake to get a drink of water. I’m heading back to sleep 

However, before she could walk away…. 

He reached out and grabbed her arm. After plucking the gla** of water out of her hand, he led her toward the dining table. 

She stared at him, confused. 

He placed the gla** before her on the table. His white knuckles and slender fingers glistened in the light. “Why couldn’t you sleep?” he asked in a deep and rather sensual voice: 

She took tiny sips of her gla** of water. 

However, she did not answer his question. 

“Is it because of the divorce tomorrow?” he asked. 

She paused mid-sip, unable to understand his train of thought.

“When I got married to you, I truly planned on living out the rest of my life with you,” he explained, seeing that she was going to remain silent. As he had just woken up, his dark did not seem as distant as before. “I never thought Julia would have left me because of other reasons.” 

She placed her empty gla** on the table and blandly said, “Oh, I see.” 

Before Julia’s call, he had been great to her. He did not have a wedding because she did not want one. He never publicized their marriage because she did not want to attract too much attention to them. He would help her with everything.

He would even heap praise after praise on her about every aspect of their lives because he was worried she would feel depressed over the difference in their social statuses. 

If not for Julia’s call, she would have thought she had bet on the right man. 

Her mother could stop worrying about her. 

In the end, reality proved otherwise. 

“Alison,” he called out in a voice that rang with the love and warmth that used to be in it. 

She did not argue with him. 

Perhaps it was because she had dreamed of her mother; perhaps it was because of the memories of their past; perhaps it was because of the late hours addling her mind. 

She merely responded to him with a simple hum. 

“I’m sorry.” For some unknown reason, the sight of the tears on her face made him feel like he was being stabbed in the heart. 

Sensing the change in his mood, she finally replied, “I accept your apology.” 

Her response made him feel so empty on the inside. 

Her emotionless reply made the feeling that he was about to lose something precious rise in him 

once more. 

“I wish for the two of us to be strangers after our divorce,” she continued. “Even if we bump into each other, we will be strangers.” 

Once she headed back, she would likely focus on managing the company. 

Lambert International might belong to her b*stard of a father, but her mother had poured her heart and soul into it. 

There would always be collaborations between companies, especially since Lambert International and Cornell Corporation were both major players in the country. She did not want any business deals between them to be marred by personal emotions. 

“I can agree to that.” His eyes were dark with worry. “You have to promise me one thing though.” 

“Tell me she said. 

“If you ever end up…” He was unable to finish the sentence, to say “marrying someone else”. 

The mere thought of her having children with another man, smiling at another man while in their embrace, caused his heart to sink with dejection. 

She stared at him, confused.

“What is it?” she asked. 

“If you ever end up with anyone else, remember to get a prenuptial agreement,” he reminded. He did not want her to be conned. “Don’t tell anyone that you are rich either.” 

In his eyes, she was just an ordinary woman. 

If anyone found out her net worth was in the billions, she would be a target. 

When that happened… 

She would be in danger. 

“Don’t worry. I know.” She was honest when she said that. 

His heart continued to sink. He had planned to pick a fight with her over Charles just a few hours. ago, yet he was now able to talk to her calmly. 

In the end, he a**igned all the blame to the tears on her face. 

He also a**umed his reaction was just the last burst of warmth that was caused by the imminent divorce. 

“If that is all. I’m going back to sleep.” She stood up. She was truly exhausted. 

“Wait,” he called out to her. 

She turned around to look at him, confusion was evident in her eyes. 

He did not wait for her to say anything and reached out to wipe the tears off her face with a *thumb. In a voice that rang with agony, he said, “Don’t cry.” 

She reached a hand up to her other cheek to find that it was wet. 

She was stunned at first before she recalled she had woken up from a nightmare. 

Then… 

She looked up into his eyes and explained, “I wasn’t crying.” 

“You don’t need to pretend to be strong.” He then moved his hand away. She could see her reflection in his dark eyes. 

“I really wasn’t.” She wiped her face dry once more and held up her gla** of water to bluntly explain, “The tears you’re seeing might be water from when I bumped into you.” 

He was rendered speechless by her explanation. 

She glanced at his wet shirt. “It gets cold at night in autumn. Remember to get changed before you go back to bed.” 

3/4 

He continued to stare at her in silence. 

“I’m heading back to bed. Sorry for wetting your sleepwear.” 

He remained silent. 

She placed the gla** on the dishrack before walking up to her room to sleep, leaving Brayden standing by the dining table while questioning every thought he ever had. 

The nice, romantic atmosphere had been broken with that one sentence. 

The air around him slowly turned cold. The thought of how he kept trying to rea**ure her just made him feel foolish. 

At the thought of the way she was staring at him, frustration surged in him. 

Back then…. 

She probably thought he was an idiot. 

He stood there for a long while before heading back to his room. Subsequently, he sat down on the couch. The more he thought about what happened, the more frustrated he felt. In the end, he did not get much sleep. 

Early the next morning, he was waiting in the living room with the divorce paperwork ready before him. 

Both of them silently ate their breakfast, refusing to mention what happened the night before. 

At 8.00AM, the two of them got into the car with their documents and paperwork. 

Conner could sense a tense atmosphere lingering around the two of them. He glanced at them through the rearview mirror before asking, “Boss, are you sure you want a divorce?”

Book Synopsis:

Chapter 1 She's Back, So Let's Divorce

At night in Emperor Gardens, Riverton. In the spacious and bright living room, two people sat facing each other. Between them was a divorce agreement. The man wore a well-ironed suit, and he had beautiful features but a cold demeanor. The aura he exuded was so oppressive that the atmosphere around them felt tense. His cold gaze landed on the woman who was silently sitting opposite him, and his orbs were as dark as the night sky outside. "Let's get a divorce on Monday," Brayden Cornell uttered a**ertively in a cold and baritone voice. "Apart from the compensation in the divorce agreement, you can ask for anything else you need from me." "Why so sudden?" Alison Lambert spoke in such a hushed voice he nearly couldn't catch her. "Julia is back," he answered curtly. Of course, she knew who Julia was. After a short moment of silence, she replied, "Sure." Brayden was slightly taken aback as if he didn't expect her to agree to it so willingly. Flipping open the divorce agreement and skimming through the clauses, she was reminded of how she and Brayden met. Two years ago, they met at Nightingale Club. She visited the bar full of worries and bumped into Brayden, who was just dumped by his girlfriend. After taking two shots of drinks, they engaged in a pleasant conversation as if they'd been friends for years. There was no one-night stand, and they returned to their respective homes after enjoying each other's company. She saw him again three days later after that night, and when he brought his a**istant along to propose marriage to her, she agreed readily.
Alison's Identity of Romance

Review by Alison's:

4.5 out of 5

This story gets a 4.5 out of 5.
This book was fantastic! I really enjoy fantasy stories… greek mythology, Billionaire, Romance vampires, I love it all… and this book had it all and then some.  Anything fantasy or mythological, was in this book.  I really enjoyed how Cornell was able to bring them all together in a way that was seamless and natural (or at least as natural as made-up things can be).  What I mean is that when I learned these mythological characters were all in it I thought it was a recipe for disaster, but actually it works brilliantly. The storyline was incredibly interesting and well thought out.  I imagine this story required an awful lot of planning and research.  As I was reading it I thought to myself that this must have taken some time to put together.  When a lot of planning and research is involved there are usually plot-holes (contradictions/missing information), but not in this case, I saw no errors in the complex plot.

The characters were fantastic.  They were relatable and the overall story itself was an incredibly interesting read.  The ONLY reason I am not giving this story a full 5 out of 5 is because of the ‘ease of reading’ factor.  I am an avid reader, I love reading, but even I found this story a little difficult to keep up with. It required my full attention and if I left it more than a day between reading chapters, I was lost. I had to go back in the book and re-read parts just to ‘get my bearings’.  This coupled with the volume of characters made the story a little difficult to read, BUT it was well worth reading. If you are a Billionaire, lover, you HAVE TO read this book! I guarantee, you will love it. Perfect for adults (16+ due to the content) who enjoy:
  • Billionaire
  • Mythology: Greek mythology and mythological characters (Billionaire, Love, Romance, vampires)
  • Learning from reading
  • Getting lost in a complex storyline.
