C3 Chapter 3

***Stella's POV***

"Mommy, why I can't go with you?" Jason asked from my bed as I was getting ready.

"Because only adults will be there." I said and he frowned.

"Then why aren't you going with daddy?" He asked and I sighed putting the curling iron down.

"I don't know if he is going to be there." I smiled at him. "And you know that I always go to that kind of parties with uncle Matt." I said curling the last piece of my hair.

"Daddy is not going to be happy." He said shaking his head and got off the bed and walked up me as I unplugged the curling iron.

"Well your father doesn't decide for me." I said as he stood in front of me laying his head on my thighs. I picked him up and sat him on my laps. "Are you sleepy baby?" I said and he shook his head looking up at me.

"Are you gonna stay long?" He asked playing with the curls on my hair.

"No." I said. "But if you need anything just ask Laura and call me." I smiled kissing his forehead and he nodded.

"Jason, time to take a bath". Laura said walking in the room. Jason pouted and shook his head resting it back on my chest.

"Baby. Go take a bath." I smiled and he pouted.

"I already took one in the morning." He whined.

"Go Jason. Plus I have to finish getting ready." I said nodding at his nanny.

She walked up to us and tried to grab his hand but he didn't want to, and just pulled his hand back.

"Jason." I said sternly and he groaned while getting off my lap. I sighed looking at him as Laura followed behind him.

I retouched my makeup then went to my closet to put my dress on. Matt invited me to an event tonight. He briefly told me what it was about, but I'm just going because he gets nervous in events like those.

Just as I put my shoes on, I heard the doorbell ring. I just dropped my shoes and went to open it.

I walked out of the room and down the stairs. I opened and Matt standing in front of me, with a smile on his face

"Hello hottie." I smiled wiggling my eyebrows and he chuckled hugging me.

"You look beautiful". He said as we pulled away. I smiled and thanked him.

"You look really handsome. What a shame for all those women who will be checking you out." I smiled walking back in. He chuckled closing the door behind him. "I'll be right back."

I walked back upstairs to put my shoes on. I then took my purse and went to Jason's room. Laura was helping him with his pyjamas shirt when I walked in.

When he saw me, he pushed her hands away and came up to me as I sat on his bed. I chuckled and started buttoning his shirt.

"You're going now?" He asked as I nodded.

"Yes. And don't wait for me like the last time." I said and he nodded. "I love you." I said softly.

"I love you too." He said.

I watched with a smile as he walked back to the bathroom to brush his teeth.

I walked back downstairs and left with Matt.


"Come". He whispered grabbing my waist as we walked toward a group of people as soon as we walked in the place. "There's someone I want you to meet." He said and I nodded.

He introduced me to his boss and his wife and we started talking. Well lucky him, he has a nice boss. He started making jobs that weren't too bad for an old man. Because I remember my dad used to make terrible jobs.

I looked around a little and my heart almost stopped when I saw Hunter, on the other side of the room with a woman, glaring at Matt and I.

His eyes met mine and hardened. I looked at him too and looked back at the old man but I could still feel his eyes on me.

Just my luck.

After some time, Matt's boss and his wife left and Matt sighed in relief making me chuckle.

"He never stops talking. That's probably why he always win in trials". He said and I laughed even more.

"Shut up. He is nice. You ungrateful brat." I said and he shook his head. "He is a nice boss". I said.

"Whatever you said. Come on. Let's join our table." He whispered in my ear and I nodded.

I looked over at Hunter again to see his jaw clenched and he balled his fist staring at me. The woman he was with was obviously trying to get his attention and failing miserably.


During the dinner, I couldn't just relax and listen to the person on the stage and the auction because I could feel Hunter's burning gaze on me the whole time. I sighed rubbing my hands against each other. I need some air.

"I'll be right back." I said in Matt's ear and he looked at me.

"Are you okay?" He asked looking worried. I nodded.

"Yes. Just need to use the restroom." I said and he nodded smiling.

I got up and walked out of the room. I sighed in relief when I couldn't feel Hunter's gaze on me anymore. He knows I hate it when people stares at me. He knows it.

"Hey!" I gasped when I felt a firm grip in my arm as I was dragged me.

"Hunter." I whispered harshly. "Let go of me. What are you doing?" I said but he ignored me and kept walking.

He opened a door and shoved me inside. I saw it was an office. He walked in too locking the door behind him. I looked at him with wide eyes starting to get angry.

"Wha....". He cut me off by grabbing my waist and crashing his lips on mine.

He kissed me hungrily and his grip tightened around my waist making me gasp. He shoved his tongue in my mouth grabbing the back of my neck deepening the kiss. I pushed on his chest but he just held me tighter. He kissed me possessively with a groan.

When I was feeling out of breath, I whimpered and he pulled away attacking my neck. He started kissing and biting in my neck as I bite my lower lips hard to keep myself from moaning.

"Hunter." I moaned as I felt my butt against the desk. "Hunter. Stop". I said but he didn't stop. "Get off me." I said louder this time.

He pulled away and looked at me as his eyes darkened.

I pushed him off me and slapped him hard. "Don't do that again!"

He clenched his teeth but didn't seem affected by it. I glared at him and started walking away but he grabbed my hand pulling me back.

"Stop it." I said getting angry.

"I don't fucking like your relationship with your lawyer!" He snapped. "What the fuck are you doing here with him?" He asked harshly.

"He invited me". I snapped. "And I can so whatever I want". I glared at him.

"YOU ARE MINE!" He snapped louder as my eyes widened.

"Fuck you!" I said trying to walk again but he pulled me back grabbing my waist tight this time.

"When I ask you to have dinner with me, you say no. But you come to events with him." He said harshly. "Who is this guy Ella?"

"THIS GUY IS MY FRIEND!" I said getting angry by his behaviour. "You have a date. Why are you bothering me?" I snapped.

"She is nothing to me. I just used to bed her." He snapped making my eyes widen.

I looked at him and he groaned probably realising what he just said.

"Well then, it's good to know." I said and he looked at me. "Let go of me." I said trying my best to hold my tears of frustration back and keep my voice strong.

"No." He snapped. "I don't want you to go back there with him."

"I don't care what you want." I said pushing him off. "Leave me alone". I snapped. "We have a son. But there's nothing more between us." I said and He looked at me raising an eyebrow.

"Are you sure?" He said pulling me closer to him.

"Stop." I groaned pushing him off again.

"I can't. I want you back." He said and I rolled my eyes.

Well you're doing a wonderful job, I thought.

"And you're not getting back there with him." He snapped and my eyes widened.

He pulled his phone out and dialed a number. "Bring the car on the back door." He said and hung up.

"What are you doing? Let go of me." I snapped.

He just grabbed my waist and threw me over his shoulder as I gasp.

"Hunter. Stop." I said loudly but he didn't answer.

Oh my god. This man is crazy.

He opened the back door and walked to a waiting black car. He put me down and pushed me inside and got in. The car started moving.

"Stop! Matt is still inside, you idiot!" I yelled slapping his chest. "Stop the car please." I said to the driver, but no answer came.

He looked at me clenching his jaw and pulled me to his lap making me gasp in surprise.

"Don't fucking say his name in front of me." He snapped. "Did something happened between you too?" He asked harshly.

"He's gay, idiot!" I yelled again wanting nothing more but to slap him. "Not that it is any of your business anyways."

He relaxed a little and his grip loosened around me.

He smirked looking at me.

"Good for him. But we're not going back."
