Cassie's words shocked Cora. 'Is Cassie out of her mind? These people aren't our friends. Why would she invite them to have some food?' she wondered.

The men dressed in black were puzzled by Cassie's reaction. Their leader scratched his head in confusion and displayed a more friendlier expression on his face. "You seem like a clever girl. I think you already know that we've been sent here to bring you with us. If you co-operate without any resistance, we will be sure to be polite to you."

Cassie immediately realized that they couldn't be persuaded to change their minds, so she needed to buy some time. All of a sudden, she pressed her hands against her belly and winced as a look of abject pain contorted her delicate features.

Cora's eyes widened in horror and she asked, "Cassie, are you feeling okay? Do you have a stomachache?"

Cassie nodded her head with great desperation. "Perhaps I ate something bad. I don't think I can eat anymore. My stomach hurts so much. I feel terrible."

"Do you want to go to the toilet?" asked Cora, expressing concern.

Cassie gave her the thumbs-up even though she knew that Cora was less likely to understand what she really meant.

"Oh my god! I can't take it anymore. Where is the toilet? Quickly, where?" Cassie looked at those men with a wide-eyed grimace.

They all froze at her critical behavior, fearing the worst.

They were hired to take her away from there even without her consent, if need be. Since she was just a delicate woman, their numbers assured them that it wouldn't take much effort on their part to catch her if she tried something fishy. With that in mind, the leader began to eye her from head to toe and finally concluded that apart from losing a bit of time, they really didn't have to worry about this woman at all.

"Okay, there's the toilet. You can go, but you have to leave your bag with us," said the man pointing his finger at her handbag.

Cassie was glad

fended.

"Don't worry about it now. It could be an isolated incident. Just keep a low profile for a few days." Cassie gave him a half-hearted smile.

Jordan, however, didn't believe her words. He stared at her deeply and said, "But I don't think that this was an isolated incident. It can't be that simple. Cassie, if you're in trouble, you can tell me. I'll help you."

His words moved Cassie. In truth, she did feel lonely and helpless and the person she needed the most wasn't even there to accompany her.

'Nick, where are you now?' she wondered.

Cassie's helpless expression aroused Jordan's desire to protect her.

"Cassie!" Jordan stretched out his arms to give her a hug without a conscious thought. Smelling the fragrance from Cassie, Jordan couldn't help but take a deep breath. As he opened his mouth to say something, Cassie pushed him away.

"You... Let me go!" Cassie was in Jordan's arms and her heartbeat increased by the second.

Cora was so shocked by his brother's actions that she didn't know how to react.

"No!" Jordan asserted and hugged her more tightly.

In truth, Cassie found comfort and warmth in Jordan's embrace. However, there was an obstacle in Cassie's heart. She was Nick's girlfriend now. How could she be with another man in the absence of Nick?
