Read Punished by His Love by Suzie Chapter 39
Marcus was stunned by her openness to borrowing money.
After a moment, he only said, “I don’t have any cash on me. Could you leave your phone number with me? After the banquet ends, I would go get it for you.”
Sabrina nodded. “Mm, thank you.”
She then gave her number to a stranger she just met and only had a brief exchange. “Marcus!” A man nearby called out to Marcus.
Marcus turned his head and saw Nigel.
Marcus held a glass of wine and came to Nigel, “Master Nigel, what have you been up to lately?”
Nigel gave Marcus a friendly punch. “Master Shaw, this is a banquet held by my grandpa to select a fiancée for my cousin, Sebastian. All the girls who attended the banquet today are socialites from South City and Kidon City. Why don’t you take the opportunity to pick one among them for yourself?”
Marcus shook his head with a smile.
Nigel smiled again. “Your cousin, Mindy, was also interested in Sebastian?”
Marcus sighed and smiled. “Since Sebastian successfully took over the whole Ford group, how many women in South City would not want to marry him?”
Nigel laughed. “That’s true.”
The two of them walked away with their wine glasses in hand. They chatted while they walked further, and found a place to sit when they arrived at the edge of the hall. Nigel pretended to be casual as he searched for Sabrina’s figure.
However, there was no sign of Sabrina among the guests.
Sabrina was blocked by three socialites in the bathroom at that moment.
The three women locked the bathroom door. One of them yanked on Sabrina’s hair while the other two poked at her nose and cursed.
“Who did you think you were? You dared to initiate a conversation with Master Sebastian?”
“Did you think you could be the Young Mistress to Young Master Sebastian after he forcibly kissed you in broad daylight? You were truly having a foolish dream and asking for the moon!”
“You wished to marry into a wealthy family only because you had some good looks? Do you believe that I would cut your face up now with a knife?” One of the women was going to pull out the eyebrow razor that she always carried with her.
“Forget it. This is the Ford Residence. Don’t cause any trouble or else we wouldn’t be able to bear the consequences when the time comes. Hey! Server! You listen up. Forget that Young Master Sebastian forcibly kissed you in public for a moment, even if he stripped your clothes and had his way with you in public, he would not take another look at you! Do you understand?”
Sabrina looked blankly at the three women and asked, “When are you going to let me return?”
“Get lost!” The woman who was grabbing her hair suddenly released her grip.
Sabrina escaped from the bathroom in a hurry.
When she arrived at the back-kitchen, the few servers were washing up the wine glasses that the guests used. The head server could not help but continuously scold her after seeing Sabrina was late.
“Sabrina, what’s the matter with you? We were paid by the headcount today! You had been running away from your responsibilities and had not done any work. You only had your heart in picking up a rich guy. Don’t tell me you wanted us to share your workload? Girls, stop washing. Let Sabrina finish washing all the remaining glasses and the used utensils by herself!” The servers were all jealous of Sabrina.
“How could she be the one that Sebastian kissed?”
“That was too d*mn lucky!”
“So what if you were kissed? After he kissed you, did he not just forget about you on the spot?”
“You, on the other hand, still had to wash the dishes in the back- kitchen!”
All the female servers watched Sabrina as she worked alone.
Sabrina was busy until all the guests dispersed. It was after ten o’clock at night and she placed all the utensils in order and handed them to the housekeeper of the Ford family. She dragged her tired body on and left the Ford residence.
The moment she walked out the door, a car came up behind her. When the car drove past her, the person in the car continued to drive on without taking a look at her.
Sabrina recognized that it was Sebastian’s license plate.
When Sebastian’s car left, another car stopped beside Sabrina, and Nigel poked his head out of the car window. “Miss, you had lost everything and gained nothing in return today, right?”
