Read Punished by His Love by Suzie Chapter 2
Sebastian did not look at Sabrina. “You heard me.”
Sabrina fiddled with the edges of her filthy clothes and said in a soft voice, “Sir, this joke is not funny at all.”
Sebastian sneered and said sharply, “Wasn’t it your plan to be married to me all along?”
Sebastian’s gaze cut through Sabrina’s thin sunken face like a sharp razor and stared into her eyes. Sabrina shuddered and turned her head away, but Sebastian squeezed her chin and forced her to look at him.
Sabrina then realized that the features under the shades had a cool and beautiful outline. God definitely favored him because he looked so handsome. Moreover, that black stubble on his jawline exuded incomparable rugged masculinity.
His suit was well-tailored and looked luxurious.
Sabrina could tell this man was a very distinguished person.
In contrast, she was wearing worn out clothes covered in mold, with disheveled hair and dirty face. Moreover, her body was smelly because she had not showered for days.
The two of them were going to get a marriage certificate?
Sabrina lowered her gaze and said softly, “Sir, do you think because I have been in jail for two years and had not seen any man, I would simply marry any random ugly man, even if I had not met him before?”
Sebastian could not help but took another look at her.
She was quite young, but had a sharp tongue, and was extraordinarily calm. His disgust towards her inevitably increased. “Are you deliberately using this method to anger me and to arouse my interest in you?”
As soon as he finished, he did not wait for Sabrina to answer but immediately ordered the driver, “To the city hall!”
“Let me go! I don’t even know you!” Sabrina was horrified and wanted to get out of the car.
With a backhand motion, Sebastian pinned her against the seat with his elbow, glared at her with a sinister gaze, and said in a cold voice, “Woman, listen up! You will be dead if you dare to get off the car.”
Sabrina was scared. She had tears tumbling in her eyes, and she said in a weak voice, “I…don’t want to die.”
“To the city hall!” The man ordered again.
“Young Master Sebastian, do we go straight to the city hall?” asked the assistant in the front passenger seat.
Sebastian looked puzzled.
The assistant looked at Sabrina and said bluntly, “Young Mistress’ clothes are worn and old, and she looked dirty…”
“Return to the Ford Residence!” The man gave another order.
“Yes, Master Sebastian.” The driver started the engine.
One and half hours later, the car stopped.
Sabrina got out of the car and saw the grand mansion that was the Ford Residence. It was located halfway up the mountain.
There was a world of difference compared to the mansion located halfway up another mountain that she had seen three days ago. This looked like a palace, whereas the mansion from three days ago was like a dilapidated prison. The man that took her innocence would probably be a death row inmate.
She was still lost in her thoughts when Sebastian grabbed her wrist.
When he pulled her along and strode forward, she had to jog behind like a stray puppy because she was much shorter than him.
The maids in the mansion bowed politely upon seeing the man. “Welcome back, Young Master Sebastian.”
The man led Sabrina through the main house towards the low-levelled rooms in the yard. He handed Sabrina to a few maids and said, “Find some clean clothes for her, and let her take a bath.”
“Yes, Master Sebastian.” The maids answered and brought Sabrina to the bathroom.
She must escape from here.
She could not be with a man that wished to have her killed but still wanted to get the marriage certificate with her right after she came out from prison.
Sabrina was so deep in her thoughts that she did not realize the maids had already taken most of her clothes off.
The maids sighed together.
“Those bruises on her neck seemed to be love bites?”
When Sabrina had regained her focus, she frantically bit her lips and said, “I’m not used to others bathing me. Please leave, and I will bathe myself.”
One of the maids asked, “You are Young Master Sebastian’s…”
Sabrina quickly interjected and said, “Maid.”
“Bathe yourself then.” The maids turned around and left impolitely.
When they went out, one of the maids let out a cold snort in a sarcastic way, “I thought she was Young Master Sebastian’s woman. She turned out to be only a maid. She looked like a promiscuous thing. Who did she think she was to let us bath her?”
When the maid looked up, she saw Sebastian standing right outside the bathroom. The maid immediately shut her mouth in fear.
In the bathroom, Sabrina looked at herself in the mirror with her face flushed red.
Her most precious first time was taken by a man whom she had never even met. In addition, she would never know what he looked like forever.
She shut her eyes, and tears glided from her cheeks to her neck.
“You really are a filthy woman!” said a harsh male voice.
Sabrina opened her eyes in a panic.
Sebastian was looking at her neck with disgust.
Sabrina frantically covered herself with her clothes. The tears of anger and shame came sliding down her face. “I was just released from prison, and you kidnapped me here. I don’t know you. No matter how filthy I am, it has nothing to do with you, right? Please get out!”
Sebastian’s disgusted gaze landed on Sabrina’s face, but he could not identify her tell that showed that she was acting.
This woman truly was a skilled swindler.
“Follow me to get our marriage certificate once you’re done washing up. Three months later, I would divorce you, then pay you a certain amount of money. When that time comes, if you wished to stay beside me for even one more second, it would not be possible!” Once he finished his sentence, he closed the door and left.
The maids in the yard dared not breathe too loudly because Sebastian was present.
Four days ago, at this house, all the maids had witnessed how vicious and domineering this newly appointed head of the Ford family can be.
Sebastian was the fourth son of his father, and his father was the eldest son of the Ford family. His three brothers and him were not born by the same mother. He was an illegitimate son. Although the Ford family was a century-old noble family, a b*stard like Sebastian would not have the eligibility to inherit even a tiny portion of the Ford family’s fortune.
In the Ford family, the collateral descendants even had priority over him for inheritance.
When he was a teenager, he had been driven into exile. However, he finally fought his way back one day and managed to return to his country, but his mother was framed and imprisoned.
Since then, Sebastian had been calculating every step meticulously and executing his plan in secret.
Finally, he faked his death three days ago and engaged a counterattack.
As a result, he drove his opponents to an end and had successfully gained control over the whole Ford family.
In the current Ford family, Sebastian has the final say.
Sebastian could only feel coldness in his gut whenever he recalled his past.
His mother did not willingly become the third person in his father’s marriage. It was a trick used by his father’s wife to keep his father in their marriage.
When Sebastian’s mother found out that his father had a family, she was already nine months pregnant.
In order to let her son grow up in the company of parents, his mother had no choice but to stay by his father’s side and suffered humiliation in silence. She was even framed and imprisoned when she was in her middle age. When Sebastian finally gained control of the Ford family and got his mother out of prison, she only had three months to live.
His mother only had one wish. She wanted him to take her cellmate, Sabrina Scott, as his bride.
Sebastian could only obey her wish, seeing that his mother did not have much time left.
The night before he decided to take Sabrina out of prison, he had done a thorough investigation on her.
His investigation showed that this woman had an ulterior motive for getting close to his mother.
“Something’s wrong, Young Master Sebastian!” The maid’s frightened exclamation interrupted his thoughts.
Sebastian’s gaze instantly turned serious. “What are you panicking about?”
“That woman… escaped by jumping out of the window,” the maid said in fear.
