Chapter 40 

The scream was from the patient in the next bed

She shrunk into a corner, her voice trembling as she spoke. MaMa’am, don’t do it!” 

Mrs. Hardy knelt on the ground, right in the middle of the spilled hot water

In her hands was a silver shard from the shattered inner lining of the thermos, its sharpest end pointed toward her own neck

If you don’t come with me to see Travis, I will die right here! Right in front of you! I’ll let you feel that guilt for your entire life!Her bloodshot eyes glared at Larissa, a resolute expression on her face

Larissa had to admit, at that moment, she was truly afraid

She had been so afraid that for a brief instant, she forgot how much Mrs. Hardy feared death, how truly manipulative and shameless she was. In her panic, she agreed to the woman’s request

Travis had already pa**ed the critical period and was transferred from the intensive care unit back to a regular ward in the spinal surgery department

Each ward had three patients in one room, but the room Travis was in only had two 


When Larissa entered the room, Mr. Hardy was sleeping on the empty bed, his loud snores filling the room

As soon as he heard a noise, he moved his neck to glance at the entrance

Then, he froze

Travisappearance at that moment was completely beyond her expectations. He was bald, his head wrapped in bandages, and his thin face crisscrossed with similar bandages. His complexion was pallid, and his eyes bloodshot

It was obvious that he wasn’t doing well at all

As soon as he saw her, Traviseyes filled with tears, and Larissa’s slender figure reflected within those clear irises. His lips trembled and his throat was constricted but he forced out two syllables after staring at her for a long while. Lari—” 

His voice was incredibly hoarse, as if his throat had been scorched by fire and polished with sandpaper

Larissa stood at the entrance and gazed at him distantly. The pa**ion in his eyes strengthened her impulse to turn away and run

He is so gross,she thought to herself

She would’ve long sprinted out of the room if it hadn’t been for Mrs. Hardy who was right behind her, blocking her sole exit

Seeing as she stood there, unmoving, for a long time, Mrs. Hardy gave her a push, forcing her into the ward

As soon as she entered, Mrs. Hardy followed closely and locked the door behind her

Are you thirsty?she asked Travis

Yeah,he replied, his eyes still pinned on Larissa

Larissa avoided his gaze. She clutched her backpack and stood against the wall without saying a word

Mrs. Hardy’s expression shifted. With long strides, she approached the sleeping Mr. Hardy and smacked his head, hard

I told you to take good care of your son, but here you are, sleeping so comfortably!” 

Mr. Hardy jolted awake, dodging her fists instinctively. In doing so, he fell off the bed and onto the floor with a loud thump

Even so, Mrs. Hardy’s fit of rage was far from over. She rounded the bed and kicked him viciously while he was down

Do you want our son to die of thirst? What’s the use of you being here? I go out every day in the rain, and I even got sent to the hospital today because of a fever, and yet you can’t even understand how hard I work? You didn’t even do any of the tasks. you had today! You stupid bastard, you should’ve died instead! Why aren’t you the one on this bed? Why aren’t you the one hit by the car instead, you useless piece of shit!She yelled furiously, not even stopping to catch her breath. She looked completely unlike a patient who was currently burning up

Mr. Hardy had initially felt guilty, and he allowed her to hit and scold him without fighting back

Later, when she’d gone too far and hit him with too much force, he finally snapped. Supporting himself up along the bed, he grabbed her hair in his fistsand slammed her head repeatedly against the wall

Again and again, her head banged against the wall, the sound of it particularly frightening

Novel Synopsis 

Chapter 1

Larissa Seymour only realized that Travis Hardy may have cheated on her after seeing the pile of pregnancy supplies in his Amazon shopping cart. Back when Travis was wooing her, Larissa had told him frankly that she had no desire to have children. Travis was the one who said, "That’s fine. It’s even better if it’s just the two of us." Only then did Larissa agree to be with him, and they got married. So, the pregnancy supplies were definitely not for her. Larissa thought for a moment. Of all the relatives and friends Travis had, the only one who had recently gotten pregnant was a female subordinate of his, Amber Fox. The last time their department had hosted a team gathering, she'd forgotten her keys and gone to Travis for his. She saw Amber rubbing the tiny bump on her stomach while sitting next to Travis. Their postures were definitely more intimate compared to their other colleagues.Larissa had not felt comfortable with it then, but when Amber greeted her graciously, she thought that she was reading into it too much. But now… Sweet Subterfuge By Trina Duo

Review by Larissa Seymour:

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. "Sweet Subterfuge By Trina Duo" 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. "Sweet Subterfuge By Trina Duo" 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.
