Faye’s heart was racing and she was terrified by Howard’s behavior. “Howard! You must be mad! I’m your cousin! How could you try to harm me?”
“Hahaha… I’m only taking you to meet someone. How is that considered harming you? Firstly, I don’t want your money, and secondly, I don’t want to take your life,” said Howard in a bantering manner.
Faye panicked even more upon hearing that. In other words, Howard coveted her body!
She was instantly infuriated, “Howard, are you still a man? I’m your cousin. Your actions make you less than a beast!”
Howard was stunned for a moment. Soon afterward, he came to a realization and grunted ‘bah’. “You must be sick in the head. Would I do something so disgusting, huh? I told you that I’m taking you to meet someone!”
Before his voice died away, a car drove in from the alley and stopped. Next, a handsome, graceful man got out of the car. It was none other than William Brown. He had a wide smile while he ogled Faye’s body with greedy eyes that glistened with wretchedness. The sight of him could send a chill down one’s spine.
“Tsk tsk, not bad, not bad. Good job, Howard!” William clapped while he strode over. The smile on his face grew wild and maliciously charming.
Howard received a notification on his phone informing him of a successful Venmo transfer of 460 thousand dollars. Howard hastily took out his phone and glanced at it. He beamed brightly when he saw the series of zeros in his internet bank account. He felt unusually excited and happy. “Mr. Brown, that’s what I’m here for. The pleasure is mine.”
William grinned and replied, “It’s been a pleasure working with you.”
Faye was anxious and furious upon seeing both of them colluding with each other. She wanted to shout abuse at them, but she resisted the urge to do so because she knew that it was meaningless at that point.
‘Calm down, calm down. You must stay calm under the circumstances!’
“William, this is my advice to you. It’s best for you not to act rashly. We’re living in a society governed by laws and there are surveillance cameras everywhere. You won’t be able to run if you commit a crime!” Faye said coldly.
William burst out laughing at once. “Oh, dear! Are you trying to intimidate me? Faye, I can see you’re not that young anymore. Why are you still pretending to be naive, huh? Even if there is a surveillance camera, so what? At most, the camera will only show that you came here with Howard. How will it be related to me? In addition, I will be recording the entire process so I can capture your debauchery. You may file a police report if you wish to live the rest of your life in humiliation. I promise that I won’t stop you.”
“William, you are shameless!” Faye gritted her teeth, furious beyond comparison.
“Shameless? I haven’t even shown you how shameless I can be yet,” William declared as he walked toward her.
Faye had just managed to calm herself with great effort, yet she became panicked again immediately. She fell back a few steps while picking up a tiny branch from the ground. She held it upright in front of her chest and struggled to speak with her shaky voice, “Get away, William! Or else, I’ll fight you!”
William became even more excited upon seeing Faye’s reaction.
He neared Faye and seized the branch from her with ease. He snapped it in two and then grabbed her wrist while leering at her like she was prey. “Faye, you’re in my hands now.”
Faye attempted to resist, yet she was just a slight woman who did not have the strength to fight. She was no match for William, so he quickly pinned her against the wall.
“William! What are you doing?! Stop it now! My husband knows Violet Vision’s chairman. If you molest me, I can assure you that he won’t let you off!” Faye shouted aloud.
“Violet Vision’s chairman?” A wisp of fear appeared in William’s eyes, but it vanished soon enough. He grunted heavily and said, “You’re still trying to scare me at this point? If that deadbeat Zayn is acquainted with Violet Vision’s chairman, or even if he is the chairman, why would I need to fear him?”
Meanwhile, Faye was thoroughly flustered. She resisted with all her might, yet her efforts were futile because William was much stronger than she was. She regretted it so much now. Tears streamed down her face and she watched helplessly as William’s lips got closer and closer. She was in total despair, wishing for someone to come and save her.
In the meantime, there was a sound…
