Read Punished by His Love by Suzie Chapter 51
There was another man in Nigel’s car.
Sabrina shook her head, “Thank you, Master Nigel, but I think I would take the bus.”
“We don’t bite. This is my best friend Zayn! Get in already!” Nigel’s tone did not offer any room for negotiation and sounded more like an order, “I know that you had a lot of work to do each day, that happens for all new employees, it would get better. Get on, I’ll give you a ride!”
Sabrina bit her lip hesitantly and finally caved. The other man in the car that was called Zayn seemed modest and courteous. He regarded Sabrina with respect and greeted, “Young Mistress Ford, I’ve heard all about you.”
Sabrina smiled gently and bowed her head. The two men sitting before her came from wealthy backgrounds, the type of person that she had never once dealt with before. She was clueless about how to interact with them, not to mention how to please them. She had therefore decided it was best for her to remain silent.
“Back to my cousin’s place?” Nigel asked.
Her phone rang before she could answer and when she picked it up, it was shown that the call was from an unknown number. She didn’t think much of it and said, “Hello, who is this?”
A voice of a middle-aged man came through and responded, “Hello, am I speaking to Miss Scott? I am calling from the Koda Leasing Company…”
Sabrina tensed up immediately and interrupted the man before he could finish, “Um, I’m so sorry, Master Tong. I think I would need the camera for a while longer, I wanted to keep it until…” Sabrina abruptly had covered the speaker on her phone and turned to ask Nigel, “Excuse me, Master Nigel. I wanted to confirm with you, when…would we receive our salary?”
“On the 15th of every month, you would have to wait for another 17 days before the 15th of next month,” Nigel replied after running a quick calculation in his head.
“Oh…Master Tong,” Sabrina went back to the phone and said, “I am going to need the camera for another seventeen days. You could charge me the daily rental like before. I’m fine with being charged a higher rate too if that is necessary. Regardless, I would return the camera in 17 days. Thank you, Master Tong.”
She hung up as soon as she was finished without waiting for a response in fear of being rejected.
The two men in the front seats turned their heads to look at Sabrina.
“What happened? Did you lose the camera you rented from them?” Nigel asked. “Mm-hmm.”
Zayn smiled softly and asked, “It’s the modern years now. Who would still be renting cameras these days? Why didn’t you use your phone?”
“No,” Sabrina shook her head and refrained from explaining further. Her phone had been broken when she first got into prison, and the camera function on it hadn’t worked since then. Zayn took the hint and did not ask any further questions after seeing that she had no intention of explaining.
Nigel, who was driving, did not hold back at mocking Sabrina, “How unlucky could you be, country girl? The rental cameras in Koda Leasing Company were all professional ones, even the simplest single-lens costs up to over tens of thousands. It’s not even on the same level with your salary.”
“I…the one I rented was a digital camera. It cost $1,500 USD.”
“…” Nigel was speechless for a few seconds, before he abruptly pulled open a drawer and took a pile of money bills out of it. He looked at it briefly and tossed it over his head to Sabrina.
“…I don’t want it,” Sabrina paused for a while before responding with a smile. If she had to be honest, every cell in her body screamed at her to take the money.
