Read Punished by His Love by Suzie Chapter 6
When they came out of city hall, Sabrina said goodbye to Sebastian. “Mr. Ford, the doctors do not allow visitation in the afternoon, so I would not go back with you. I will visit Aunt Grace tomorrow morning.”
She was a person who knew boundaries of propriety.
When she was not in front of Aunt Grace, she would take the initiative to distance herself from Sebastian.
“Up to you,” Sebastian said coldly.
Sabrina left the place alone.
In the car, Kingston asked, “Young Master Sebastian, aren’t you afraid that she would escape?”
Sebastian sneered contemptuously. “Escape? If she truly wanted to escape, why would she work as a waitress at the restaurant I visit often? Why would she also come to my mother for a loan? She only made the first two escapes to raise her price.”
Kingston said, “Who would say otherwise…”
“Drive,” said Sebastian.
The car drove past Sabrina, but Sebastian did not even take a look at her.
Sabrina dragged her tired body back to her place.
She was stopped by somebody as she reached her door. “Sabrina! You’re really hiding in this area.”
It was Selene!
Two years ago, due to her chaotic private life, Selene was taken advantage of by an old, ugly, and vulgar man. When the man had his guard down─halfway through the intercourse─Selene used her heels and smashed through the man’s head, killing him instantly.
To help Selene get away with the crime, the Lynn family got Sabrina drunk and secretly sent her into the meticulously faked crime scene.
As a result, Sabrina had received a ten-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter.
Selene, on the other hand, dodged a bullet and was not imprisoned.
Whenever she thought of that, Sabrina wanted to strangle Selene to death.
She looked at Selene indifferently. “How did you find me?”
Selene became more complacent. “Sabrina, do you know what this type of place is called? Urban village. It is the only urban village in South City. The residents here are mostly streetwalkers. You can have a night with a streetwalker for only five dollars here. One busy night can make a hundred dollars, tsk, what a good amount of money.”
“So, you came all the way to show off to me that you made a hundred dollars in one night?” Sabrina asked coldly.
“You!” Selene raised her hand and wanted to hit Sabrina, but she stopped her hand mid-air.
She smiled and said, “I almost lost my composure. Let me tell you, I would be getting married soon and the house needs to be renovated. The maids found a few pictures of you and your mother when clearing the trash…”
Sabrina asked eagerly, “My mother’s pictures? Don’t throw it, I would come and collect it.”
Her mother had passed away, so the pictures that were left behind were extremely precious to her.
Selene asked nonchalantly, “When would you collect them?”
“Tomorrow afternoon it is. Otherwise, all that trash would be pollutants if they spend one more day in my house!” After saying that, Selene, surrounded with an air of pride, walked off in her heels.
Not long after Selene left, Sabrina went to bed.
She was now in her first trimester and had an extraordinarily tiring day of rushing around, so she wanted to rest early and get up earlier tomorrow to go to the hospital for a pregnancy check-up.
The next day, Sabrina came early to queue at the ultrasound room in the hospital. When there was just one person left before her turn, she received a call from Sebastian and picked up the call. “What is it, Mr. Ford?”
Sebastian’s usual cold tone could be heard at the other end of the call. “My mother misses you.”
Sabrina saw that there was only one person before her, so she estimated the duration and said, “I would be at the hospital in about one and a half hour.”
“Sure.” Sebastian’s reply was short and brief.
Sabrina cleared her throat and said, “Uh… I would do my best to cheer Aunt Grace up. Could you give me some more allowance? Could you deduct it from the divorce settlement fee?”
“We’ll talk when you’re here.” Sebastian immediately hung up the phone.
He hated people who bargain with him the most!
Sabrina continued to wait in line.
As she was about to enter, an emergency patient was suddenly rushed in to do an ultrasound, which took more than half an hour. When it was finally Sabrina’s turn, only then did she realize that she needed to start a medical record because it was her first check-up. Her ultrasound was delayed for another half an hour.
When she arrived at Grace’s ward, she heard her crying inside. “You unfilial son, are you lying to me? I asked you where Sabrina is!”
“Mom, we already got our marriage certificate yesterday.” Sebastian handed the certificate to his mother.
“I want you to get Sabrina back here now!” The elderly woman relentlessly pushed her son.
“I’ll go find her now.” Sebastian stood up and came out.
At the door, Sabrina met Sebastian’s cold, sharp gaze.
She hung her head, walked to the front of Grace’s bed with a bag in her hand, and said warmly, “Aunt Grace, I’m the one who came late. I remembered you often said that you liked cream puffs when we were in prison, so I bought a box for you.”
Grace stopped crying and smiled, “Sabbie, you still remembered that I love cream puffs?”
“Of course.” Sabrina handed a cream puff to Grace and said, “Have one, Aunt Grace.”
Grace looked eagerly at Sabrina. “Sabbie, you should change the way you address me to ‘Mom’.”
Sabrina said, “… Mom.”
“Yes,” Grace said with a sense of gratification, “With you by Sebastian’s side, I’ll be at ease when I cross over to the other side.”
Sabrina suddenly teared up. “Mom, you’re not allowed to say that. You can live a long life…”
After she managed to coax Grace to sleep, Sabrina came to Sebastian again and bit her lips. “Mr. Ford, could I have some allowance?”
Sebastian’s expression remained unchanged, he only said calmly, “You promised me to reach in one and a half hours, and you only came after three hours. If you let me catch you leaving my mother hanging again, then it wouldn’t only be a matter of money.”
Sabrina suddenly shivered. She could sense the calm murderous aura from his calm speaking tone.
She knew he was not just saying that.
She smiled self-deprecatingly. “It’s not easy to earn rich people’s money. I understand! I won’t ask you again─ I want to confirm with you, you would set up an account in a big city for me, right?”
Sebastian replied, “You won’t receive anything less than the conditions written on the contract.”
“Thank you. I have plans in the afternoon, so I would take my leave now.” Sabrina left in a desolate state.
“Sebastian…,” Grace called out from her room.
Sebastian immediately went into the room. “Mom?”
“I know you dislike Sabrina, but son, a lot of troubles and sufferings that I could not handle in prison were taken care of by Sabrina. I knew her better than anyone else. She is a righteous person who values her family and friends more than anything. With the number of times the Ford family had plotted against the two of us, wasn’t it enough? I want to find you a partner that would never leave you. Do you understand my efforts?”
“I understand, Mom.” Sebastian nodded.
Grace wanted to get out of the bed as she spoke, “I want to personally call Aunt Quinton to ask if Sabrina is staying at your house. I could only be truly at ease if both of you are a proper, married couple.”
Sebastian was speechless.
Right at that moment, his phone rang. He immediately picked up the phone and coldly asked, “What?”
At the other end of the phone, Selene acted in a cute and delicate voice. “Darling Sebastian, I want to invite you to my house to discuss our marriage, could you come? Pretty please?”
“I’m not free today!” Sebastian refused decisively.
