Chapter 56 Anne’s blood ran cold as stuttered, “Wh-why are you… doing this?”
“Why? Because it’s fun! Don’t you think it’s fun? Did you really think I was going to betray my brother for you? How naive!”
Tommy shook his head and sighed.
Anne’s eyes widened in disbelief, her tears scrolling down her cheeks. She had always thought that a gentleman like Tommy could not have been related to Anthony, but it turned out she had been wrong.
They were both sick!
“Oh, my. Are you crying? How pathetic…” Tommy reached out to touch her cheek.
Anne pushed his hand away and kicked at the car door…
“Ow!” The car door slammed onto Tommy and he stumbled backward. His expression darkened viciously as he opened the car door to drag Anne out, raising his hand to slap her across the face. However, before he could land a blow, someone grabbed him by the wrist.
Tommy stilled and turned to look at the person who grabbed him. “Anthony?”
“She’s not yours to torment.” Anthony shoved him aside.
“Are you pushing me away now that I’ve served your needs? Had I not informed you about this, you wouldn’t know that she stole her passport to run away.” Tommy said in frustration.
“It wasn’t necessary!” Anthony glared coldly at Anne, who was trembling by the car door. “Get inside the car.”
Surrounded, Anne had no way to escape and she already knew that she would be tortured, the one thing that upset her most was not that she was cornered, but because she had misjudged Tommy. Had everything been fake? What part of their characters were real?
She had never imagined that Tommy would be the one to ruin her one and only chance to escape.
They went into Anthony’s Rolls Loyce and the car darted off, while Anne curled up at the corner like a broken ragdoll. She felt a hand on her jaw, forcing her to look up and meet Anthony’s brooding eyes.
“Devastated ?” He questioned huskily with a cruel tone. He studied her pale cheeks, his glare sharp enough to cut. “Tommy was right. Had he not told me about this, you would have managed to escape!”
“What makes you…think that I would want to stay by your side?” Anne asked in tears, “I’m not a masochist …
She scowled in pain when his fingers tightened around her jaw.
“You really know how to surprise me.” His voice was so terrifying that each breath he exhaled felt cold on her skin. “Well, how are you going to appease my anger this time, hm?”
Chills ran down her spine as Anne shivered uncontrollably. “I’ll tell you this, so long as I’m still alive …I will never stop running.
Never…” As she spoke , she felt as though her jaw was about to be crushed.
“When you run, have you ever considered that others might have to pay for your mistake?” Anthony threatened.
Her aunt was protected by Ron so nothing would happen to her; the only person left would be Anne’s mother…
“You’re a monster, Anthony Marwood…”
“You are only finding out now?” He stared at her ferociously. “Maybe I should get someone to bring her here and toss her into the sewage so you can see what a monster I am!” “No…” Terrified , she grabbed onto his arm with both of her hands. “Don’t do it, Anthony. She has nothing to do with this. You caught me, didn’t you? I can take any punishment!” 1
“So what if you managed to escape today? There are plenty of people out there who can pay for your mistake!”
She sobbed wordlessly, knowing that he was right. If she provoked Anthony, the people she cared most about would be hurt. She would never be at peace if her willfulness had come to hurt her aunt and her mother, Anthony could not help his urge to torment her when he saw the misery on her face.
