Read Punished by His Love by Suzie Chapter 52
She was in desperate need of money at the moment. Nigel seemed to have seen right through her and said with a cavalier attitude, “What I had given you couldn’t be over $3,000 USD. What’s wrong? Were you afraid that I was trying to buy a night of your time with that? Relax! I’m not interested in you! I only thought that a country girl like you was too pathetic. Consider this as charity work. If you really couldn’t accept it as it is, you could pay me back in installments in the future every time you received your pay.”
“Thank you,” Sabrina blushed with her hands on the money.
“Also! My time is far too precious. Stop wasting my time. The next time I say I’m going to give you a ride, you should get in the car immediately,” Nigel said mischievously as he stared at the reflection of a blushing Sabrina from the rear-view mirror of his car.
“Okay,” Sabrina nodded obediently and turned to look outside the window calmly without another word. However, she was trying to keep the butterflies she felt in her stomach at bay.
There were adversities wherever she was ever since she came out of prison. The Lynn family despised her and plotted for her doom; Sebastian Ford forced her into doing what she did not want to with power; even Marcus Shaw, who once offered her his business card along with his help, was all talk.
However, Nigel was different. He acted as if he didn’t have a care in the world and had never been thoughtful in his words. Every conversation he shared with Sabrina was somehow slightly insulting when he called her the nickname ‘country girl’.
Nonetheless, he was the man who helped Sabrina in securing her job and the one that drove her to the city from the Ford Residence at the mountainside. He had yet again extended a helping hand by giving her thousands of dollars to pay the compensation for the lost camera.
Sabrina felt something warm ignited within her as she realized that though Nigel might not look like it, he had a kind soul. After allowing herself to sink into thoughts, she suddenly discovered that Nigel was heading in the wrong direction. He seemed to be sending her to where Sebastian lived when she wanted to head towards the hospital Grace was admitted into.
“Um…Master Nigel,” Sabrina raised her voice and smiled shyly, “I’m sorry, but I…I wanted to go to the hospital.”
“Paying a visit to my aunt?” Nigel asked.
“Yes. I’m sorry for the trouble, Master Nigel. Could you please turn around and send me to the hospital?” Sabrina replied with a smile.
“That’s right, keep it up with that sweet tone whenever you speak to me from now on,” Nigel teased before making a dramatic turn and drove towards the hospital where Grace was treated.
As soon as they reached and the car stopped, Sabrina opened the car door and got out of the car. There was another car parked not far away from them. She stood by the door with a coy grin as she looked at Nigel who was in the car. Then she said, “Master Nigel, thank you so much. Rest assured, I would pay you back as soon as I get my pay. I’d love to treat you to dinner sometimes too, if that’s okay with you.” “Remember your promise, I expect one glorious meal for my charity! I would come for you if you dared to break your promise,” Nigel casted a playful grin her way.
“Yes, of course,” Sabrina nodded frantically. Her expression was filled with admiration like a fan in front of their celebrity.
Nigel snorted in response before driving away. The moment the car was out of sight, he turned around to Zayn and said, “What about that, Zayn? That country girl is mine, and she would fall head over toes for me, offering her heart willingly when I’m done with her! You would lose that bet with me.”
“She was only a stubborn and uneducated country girl. Why did you have interest in her?” Zayn asked.
“I have a unique taste!” Nigel retorted while shrugging his shoulders.
“You ought to be more careful. Your Sebastian might skin you alive if he found out,” said Zayn.
“I bet both of my eyes that Sebastian would never take an interest in that country girl! Did you think I would have made a move on his woman if it was otherwise? Quit joking around!” Nigel pouted. Little did he knew that right after he had driven off, Sebastian stepped out of a car that was parked nearby.
