Chapter 17 Do You Think This Is Honorable 

Calliope had a terrible time at the meeting that morning

She constantly felt Jonah’s somewhat salacious gaze on her body. Meanwhile, she also felt Melissa staring daggers at her. The latter acted as if she wanted to shred Calliope to pieces

Hence, Calliope immediately made up an excuse to leave the conference room the moment the meeting ended. She did not wait for Jonah to approach her

Not long after she ran off, she heard Melissa’s voice from behind her. What’s the matter with you? Well, aren’t you quite the seductress? I guess I should have expected that the leopard cannot change its spots.” 

Calliope’s heart lurched

She had just told Serena about the incident in the afternoon, and the latter had been startled too. Surely it could not be a coincidence. How did I manage to run into the two of them in such a huge company

You should handle them with care if you happen to run into them,Serena advised in a low voice. Cally, I’m currently not part of the sales department, so it’s difficult for me to speak up for you. Melissa’s uncle is a major shareholder in the company, so she’s used to having her way most of the time. Anyway, you’ll probably encounter some difficulties in the future. You must tread carefully!” 

Okay! Don’t worry.” Calliope smiled softly. As long as I don’t make any mistakes, Melissa can’t do anything to me.” 

That very afternoon, Melissa had specially given her a task

Here’s the list of attendees for the coffee break later. They’re all major clients of our company, so 

you 

should prepare adequately.” 

Calliope nodded in response

The coffee break was small in scale, as there were only about ten people on the list. However, she would have to strive for excellence in order to please the clients

Melissa smirked. By the way, you must pay extra attention to the food given to Sarah Dawson, the CEO of Dawn Group. She’s a tough woman, but she has a peanut allergy. Make sure her food doesn’t contain anything with peanuts in them.” 

All right. Lunderstand.” 

Calliope took the list and walked away

Although it was her first day at work, she did everything methodically and took care of everything in an orderly fashion. Soon, the venue for the coffee break was properly set up

Everything was in order when the participants filed in

Sighing in relief, Calliope stood by the side as she surveyed the scene. However, someone suddenly shrieked

Ms. Dawson has pa**ed out!” 

Stunned, Calliope hurriedly ran over to check on the situation. Sure enough, Sarah was on the ground. Her eyes bulged as she struggled to breathe

What’s going on?someone shouted. We made sure to inform you Ms. Dawson is allergic to peanuts! Why is there peanut butter in this cupcake?” 

Melissa came over, demanding sharply, Who is the person who prepared the cupcakes? I made sure to emphasize Ms. Dawson’s peanut allergy! How can such a mistake happen?

Calliope felt her breath choke as she met Melissa’s hatredfilled eyes

It was only then she managed to grasp the situation. I’m being framed

Calliope, I entrusted the task to you! How could you make such a colossal mistake?” 

Calliope bit her lip and kept quiet

Now’s not the time to argue about that!Sarah’s a**istant was frantic. Please call an ambulance! If this continues, she may actually die!” 

The scene descended into chaos

Composing herself, Calliope weaved through the crowd and came to a stop next to Sarah. She observed the woman for a moment before producing a small vial from her bag

Hurry, feed her this!” 

WWhat’s this?” 

My brother also has a peanut allergy. I make sure to always carry this around in my bag.” 

Calliope took a capsule from the vial, stuffed it into the other woman’s mouth, and forced her to 

swallow it. 

Before the ambulance had even arrived, Sarah was no longer gasping for breath, and her breathing gradually stabilized. The rash on her body was also no longer as severe

Slowly, Sarah opened her eyes and glanced at Calliope. With some difficulty, she managed to 

utter a few words. TThank you.” 

Don’t mention it.” Feeling relieved, Calliope mopped the sweat on her forehead

When the ambulance finally arrived, the crowd was a flurry of hands and feet as everyone tried to get Sarah into the vehicle. Eventually, everything calmed down

With a dark expression, the super visor then called Calliope and Melissa to the office

Calliope kept silent as Melissa recounted the whole incident animatedly

Calliope.” Melissa stood with her arms crossed around her chest and a triumphant expression on her face. I reminded you repeatedly, but you refused to take my words seriously. You were the one who prepared the food. Were you trying to kill Ms. Dawson?” 

Why would I do such a thing? There’s no bad blood between us,Calliope replied as she looked at Melissa calmly. I don’t know why someone would swap out the cupcakes I had prepared.” 

What’s the meaning of this?” 

Look,” Calliope said as she produced the remnants of the cupcake Sarah had eaten earlier. The casing is made of paper. These were not the cupcakes I prepared.” 

The supervisor frowned. What do you mean?” 

I bought the food for the coffee break from the bakery opposite the company. In order to differentiate the ones with and without peanut butter, I made sure to tell them to use an aluminum foil casing for the ones without. However, the one Ms. Dawson ate had a paper casing. Moreover, I did not find any cupcakes in aluminum foil casing when I surveyed the venue earlier. Someone must’ve swapped out the peanutfree cupcakes!” 

Melissa’s expression darkened. She shouted angrily, Are you trying to frame me?” 

Frame you?Calliope smiled. Ms. Muller, I only said that someone had swapped the food. I did not accuse you of being the culprit. Why are you so agitated?” 

YYouMelissa glared at Calliope hatefully as she clenched her fists tightly

I made sure to differentiate between the cupcakes, Calliope declared firmly. If you don’t believe my words, you can check with the bakery staff or even the surveillance footage. Although I’m new here, I can’t stand by idly when I’m being wrongly accused. I request a thorough investigation into this matter!” 

Since it had come to this, it was obvious who was the guilty party

The supervisor’s expression turned gloomy. Melissa was obviously the culprit, but since Sarah ended up being fine, there was no need to get on the shareholder’s niece’s bad side for some 

newbie

Calliope, I’ll handle this,he declared authoritatively. You may leave. I need to speak with Ms. Muller.” 

Calliope nodded in acknowledgment and stepped out

Before Melissa could utter another word, the supervisor ordered sternly, That’s enough.” 

Huh? What-” 

Do you think you did an honorable thing? If it weren’t for Calliope’s medicine earlier, something terrible would have occurred. Do you think you could have dealt with the subsequent repercussions?” 

Melissa turned pale as a sheet

Don’t think you can do whatever you want in the company just because your uncle is a shareholder. There’s a limit to my tolerance. If you go too far, I’m afraid I will no longer turn a blind eye to your antics. You’d better behave yourself.” 

Furious at being unable to gain the upper hand and ending up reprimanded by the supervisor, Melissa grew even angrier at Calliope, the cause of all her troubles

Thanks to Melissa’s efforts, Calliope was unable to secure any sales in the entire month she was here. Naturally, she became a bad example at their meetings.

Novel Marrying The Undercover Magnate

Chapter 1 Wedding Night

“It's getting late. Let's go to bed.” The man's deep voice pulled Calliope Gingrich out of her reverie. She raised her eyes to meet his dark gaze, which seemed to be overflowing with a multitude of feelings that she could not comprehend. Calliope gripped the hem of her dress as her heart started to race in anticipation. After entering the room, she carefully lowered herself onto the edge of the bed and stayed there, her body rigid. As time ticked by, she made no movement to take off her wedding dress, instead choosing to keep it on. It wasn't until the man stepped out of the shower that it finally dawned on her that they would be spending their wedding night together. Calliope was at a loss when it came to interacting with her new husband. After all, she had been thrust into the role of his wife, taking the place of someone else. As the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy family, she had to marry a poor man in place of her sister, Penelope Gingrich, in order to fulfill the marriage arrangement that had been made by the previous generation. In exchange for her acquiescence, she was promised a considerable sum as her dowry. With the money, she could cover both her mother's medical expenses and her younger brother's school fees. This was the only feasible way for their family to make ends meet. Calliope took a deep breath and made her way to the bathroom timidly. “I-I'll go take a shower.” The man's gaze turned dark at her words.

Review by Marrying The Undercover Magnate:

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.
