Crystal’s Summer Romance Chapter 9

Chapter 9 Precious Gift as Compensation
Henry was quite gentlemanly as he reached out and adjusted her skirt, then moved to button it up.
“I can do it myself,” Crystal said in a shaky voice.
She gripped the grain-sized button, but it was so slippery that she couldn’t quite do it. In the end, Henry buttoned it for her.
He apologized to her again.
To compensate, he called up Jake Murray and explained the situation with Crystal’s father to him.
Jake was quite approving of Henry, so he immediately agreed to the man’s request. Then, he scheduled a time to meet up with Crystal.
Henry chatted with Jake for a bit before hanging up.
He sat down at the desk and lit a cigarette, then said to Crystal, “Other than the lawsuit, do let me know if there’s anything else you want.”
Crystal knew that this must be their last meeting.
If it were before, Henry might fondly recall her body on occasion, but things were different now. He must have made a firm decision to set a clear boundary between them.
After all, Crystal knew her worth.
She pretended to be indifferent as she said, “We’re just a couple of adults having fun. I didn’t lose anything, anyway. I even have to thank you for your help, Mr. Miller.”
When she finished speaking, she felt her nose tingling, but she refused to cry in his presence. She wasn’t even friends with him, so there was no point in showing weakness in front of him.
She said goodbye to Henry and told him that she would hail a ride home.
Henry didn’t say anything. He sat there and continued smoking with an ambiguous look in his eyes.
Crystal left.
She didn’t go home right away, though. She didn’t want to meet Anna’s disappointed gaze so soon.
As night fell, Crystal walked alone on the streets. The Ferris wheel in the plaza at the city center was illuminated with colorful lights, and a couple could be seen hugging and kissing each other under the blinking lights.
Crystal paused in her tracks.
She watched everything silently. As the night breeze picked up, the corners of her eyes moistened.
When a golden Bentley Continental passed by Crystal’s side, Henry caught sight of her.
She was standing under the Ferris wheel, looking up at the stars in the sky. There was a deep longing in her eyes, and Henry wasn’t so delusional as to assume she was thinking of him.
Deep down, he knew who she was thinking of.
Henry stepped on the gas pedal, and the Bentley Continental sped away.

The next day, Crystal went to work at the music center, which offered the best music training in Barnwood. Crystal’s colleagues knew that something had happened to her at home, so they gave her a few words of comfort.
Crystal didn’t want anyone to be affected, so she smiled lightly and said that she was fine.
At 10.00AM, a package was delivered to her, and the sender was a certain Mr. Miller.
Crystal opened the package to find an exquisite velvet box that contained a diamond necklace.
The necklace was brilliant and eye-catching, and it looked very expensive.
A colleague whispered to Crystal, “Judging from the brand and the number of carats, this necklace probably costs 150,000 at the very least.”
Crystal didn’t want it.
However, Henry hadn’t left his contact information on the package, so she knew that he didn’t want to see her.
After work, Crystal went to Justice Law Firm. She handed the velvet box to the receptionist, requesting that it be passed to Mr. Miller.
The receptionist was bewildered, but she still agreed nonetheless.
Crystal was about to leave when she saw Henry walking out with a young lady. She had seen the lady in a magazine before.
The lady was Melora Miller, the apple of the Millers’ eyes, as well as Henry’s only younger sister.
Melora returned from studying abroad six months ago, and she quickly fell in love with Robert.
At that moment, Melora was holding her brother’s arm as she said, “Henry, I’ve asked you so many times to meet Robert just this once!”
Henry dismissed the notion absent-mindedly.
Melora pretended to be mad as she argued with him, but anyone could see that the siblings were close.
Crystal watched them quietly.
She didn’t hate Melora, but she did mock herself a little.
The siblings looked close, so why did she assume that Henry would defend her in court?
Crystal left discreetly, but Henry caught sight of her. He quickly dismissed Melora, then walked toward the receptionist.
The receptionist immediately passed the jewelry box to him. “Mr. Miller, that lady just now left this for you.”
Henry took it and gave her a reserved nod.
When he returned to his office, he tossed the box into the drawer. Soon, he forgot about Crystal, only somewhat remembering her existence when his body needed relief.
She had a slender waist, and her legs were long and straight…

Book Synopsis:

Chapter 1 Stirring up Trouble With a Big Shot

On the night of Robert Sloan's engagement, Crystal Winters got drunk at a bar. She mistook someone, hugged an incredibly handsome guy in a dark alley, and passionately kissed him. Both of them felt satisfied with the kiss. The handsome guy looked at the woman in his arms and purred in a sensual and husky voice, "Are you serious?" Crystal sobered up a bit and recognized the man in front of her. Belonging naturally to the metropolitan elite with a plethora of properties registered to his name, Henry Miller was the preeminent attorney in the country. Nevertheless, he also assumed an additional role—Robert's forthcoming brother-in-law. Crystal hesitated momentarily, but then she mused, If Robert can cheat on me, why can't I indulge and enjoy myself too? Instead of pushing Henry away, she held onto him even tighter as she was beautiful and had an attractive figure. Despite his general disposition toward restraint, Henry found himself willing to indulge in a fleeting romantic encounter with her.
Crystal's Summer Romance

Review by Alison’s:

4.5 out of 5

This story gets a 4.5 out of 5.
In this beautiful novel from the internationally bestselling author of Crystal's Summer Romance Robert Sloan explores another little-known slice of history seen through women’s eyes. I read this trying to push myself out of my “Billionaire” comfort zone, I tend to stick to genres I like, billionaire has never been one of those genres. However, I really enjoyed this book, Crystal's Summer Romance ( Crystal & Robert Sloan ). it was exciting, there was a lot of action and drama and it wasn’t as predictable as most billionaire, romance stories. The scenes were hot, but if you’re not a massive fan of smut, they’re not too heavy, so this book is perfect for you. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because I felt the story could have continued a little longer, the ending felt a little rushed. That might have just been me wanting more. I did guess the ending, but this is the case with most books (I actively try to work out how it’s going to end). Overall a great read, I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.“ Perfect for adults (16+) who enjoy:
  • Billionaire
  • Mythology: Greek mythology and mythological characters (Billionaire, Love, Romance, vampires)
  • Learning from reading
  • Getting lost in a complex storyline.
