"Aren't you leaving? Don't you feel ashamed?" When Holley saw Black still standing in the doorway, she became impatient.

Her frown, in turn, left Black utterly frustrated.

When Black had walked in and seen his beloved woman in the arms of another man, he had felt his heart break into a million pieces. This pushed Black over the edge. Everything had been driving him crazy. Now, he had caught Holley being intimate with another man right in front of him. Black couldn't bear the pain in his chest.

Black's feelings for Holley made him want to attack the man. In mere seconds, the violent impulse was beginning to take over. Black wanted nothing more than to beat the man to death.

With a lifted fist, he rushed toward the strange man.

As Black's hand was about to meet the man's neck, Holley stretched out her hands and held Black's still-closed fist.

"What are you doing?" Holley furiously glared at Black.

Black felt defeated. All the sadness and desperation he felt showed clearly on his face.

The hurt expression on his face devastated Holley as well, but she didn't show it. She continued, "If you're a real man, you'll go now. You're just embarrassing all of us."

This sentence made Black freeze.

Slowly, he softly lowered the fist which Holley had been blocking. His arms hung at his sides in defeat.

He stopped moving toward Holley and the strange man in the hotel room, and stared at Holley mutely. For a while, she looked like a stranger, like he'd never seen her before. Black wondered if this was in fact the woman he had fallen in love with.

In the past, Holley had been so nice and so kind that Black had fallen head over heels in love with her. For some reason, everything had changed. Black had no idea how this happened. He couldn't wrap his head around the why and how of Holley's sudden change, either.

As Black thought things through, he slowly stepped back and made his way out. He didn't say another word to Holley and the man.

Holley watched Black disappear at the end of the fifth-floor corridor. Feeling drained, she slumped down on the floor.

The man in the room with her was unbothered by the exchange. In fact, he was happy now that Black had gone. He squinted at Holley, gently squeezed her chin, and said in a playful tone, "H

er face and neck. Then she made her way down to the first floor, exited the hotel, and hailed a cab. She felt some semblance of relief only when the driver started driving away from the hotel.

Her place wasn't too far, and she soon arrived home.

Holley wasted no time and took a shower right away. She wanted to get rid of that man's scent. After washing for what seemed like an hour, she could still smell him on her. The hickeys were even more difficult to remove.

She began trembling in the shower. She couldn't get rid of the marks on her skin no matter how hard she tried. Holley couldn't help but cry on the floor.

Then, her phone rang. Holley felt numb. She wanted to ignore the ringing, but the phone rang and rang. Upset, she went out of the shower, wrapped herself in a towel, and picked up the phone.

Upon seeing that it was Ferry, Holley answered and shouted, "What's the matter with you! I have behaved just like you ordered me to. I've done everything you wanted me to do! How could you do that to me?"

The moment Ferry heard Holley screaming, he held his phone away from his ear. Now that her voice sounded softer, he put the phone back against his ear and said, "Are you questioning me?"

"That man defiled me, upon your order!" Holley exclaimed as she gritted her teeth. Tears fell down her cheeks. She knew she could never win against Ferry, but she couldn't stand such an insult.

"I'm helping you. I don't expect gratitude from you, but you shouldn't…" Ferry said playfully and patiently.
