Rachel Ruan kept silent, and Mandy Wang pulled Rachel's sleeve and begged her with her eyes filled with tears. "Rachel, we will be in one family, and you will become my elder sister soon. Please help me get through this trouble. Please."

Rachel felt very baffled. If she was living alone as she did in the past, she could've helped her without hesitating.

But she was living now in Hiram's villa. She couldn't absolutely bring another woman into his house.

Or else, he would surely throw both Mandy and Rachel out of his house.

"Well, I have an idea. You'll have your salary after two days, right? Maybe you can get a room in a hotel and stay there for two days. I will pay for it. Besides, it's safer in the hotel. Then you can rent a house and move there."

Rachel suggested.

She thought that it was the best way to solve her problem.

But Mandy felt curious after what Rachel suggested. She looked at Rachel in suspicion. She figured that maybe Rachel had a boyfriend. No man ever dared to be Rachel's boyfriend, she recalled. Then, Mandy immediately replied,"Rachel, I think it's better if we live together so we can take care of each other. Or... Don't tell me you already have a boyfriend?"

Mandy remembered that Fannie Ruan secretly asked her father to introduce some men to Rachel, because no man dared to be on a blind date with her.

Mandy admitted that Rachel indeed had gotten more beautiful than her. Moreover, Rachel also was more capable than her in work. However, Rachel was far less attractive to men than Mandy.

"Yes...I do. So, I think we can't live together now." Rachel confessed honestly. No matter what she did, she couldn't take Mandy to Hiram's house.

She also didn't want to let someone else know about their marriage.

The marriage would only last for a month, so Rachel thought that she'd better keep it as a secret to most people.

"Really? Are you kidding me?" Mandy was so shocked as she heard Rachel's answer. She was astonished, looked at Rachel and thought, 'She always brings bad luck to men. Who dares to be her boyfriend?

And now, he is living with Rachel. Unbelievable!'

"If that is the case, you should, at least, take me to your house and let me see your boyfriend. You know that I have met all kinds of men more than you have. Though I always have bad boyfriends, I still could help you check your boyfriend to see if he is good for you," Mandy said.

Mandy was so eager to see Rachel's boyfriend. She was so curious about the man who dared to live with Rachel.

Mandy hadn't heard anything about this man from auntie Fannie. She assumed that the man probably was not good enough.

It might even be a very old man. No one else would want Rachel.

"Mandy, don't let me repeat my words! Go and look for a hotel now. If you continue to waste one more second, I won't pay for your accomodation in the hotel. You will pay for it yourself!" Rachel lost her patience. She stared at the road after she finished her words.

After she saw Rachel get angry, Mandy immediately grabbed her hand and said,"Okay, okay. My bad. I am just worried about you. There is a hotel ahead that seems to be good. I will check in there."

Mandy was well-aware of Rachel's temper. Rachel was always nice to her, but if she got angry, Rachel could be very rude to her.

Mandy remembered that she had once said something that hurt Auntie Fannie. Rachel got furious and pulled her hair violently. Her look really frightened Mandy that time.

Rachel heaved a sigh of relief after she helped Mandy with her problem.

If it weren't for her mother's sake, Rachel wouldn't have any interest in helping Mandy. Rachel didn't even want Mandy to be her younger sister.

After that, Rachel took a taxi going to the Tulip Palace. When the taxi arrived, she got out and started to walk into Hiram's villa. Rachel consciously turned around to look behind her after she walked a few steps. She felt that someone was stalking her.

She wasn't sure about it though. But it couldn't be Mandy, because Rachel helped Mandy check in to the hotel. She had also seen Mandy go into the bathroom.

Rachel shook her head. She wondered maybe she was just worrying too much after she was wounded last time.

It was already dark when she came back to the villa. She quickly took a shower and cooked for her dinner.

Before she could finish

eating her dinner, she received a phone call from Hiram.

"What did you say? Hiram Rong! You...". Rachel said angrily.

"I am taking some friends with me to my house. You can just go outside and walk around. I will call you when my friends leave so you can come back," Hiram tried to be patient and repeated his words.

Same as Rachel, Hiram also didn't let anyone know about their marriage.

Rachel put her chopsticks down and looked outside the window. It was completely dark. "How about I stay at my bedroom? I swear I won't come out. Your house is so huge, no one will find me. Please?" Rachel suggested.

"Rachel Ruan, don't make me say it again! We have a term on our marriage contract saying that if there is a special case, the wife should cooperate and leave the house. Don't you remember that?" Hiram said decisively. He was losing his patience.

His house was huge and had all the facilities that were perfect for any gatherings. His friends and his long-term clients would come to visit him and have fun in his house.

"" Rachel was frustrated and took a deep breath. She suddenly lost her appetite because of what happened.

Rachel angrily hung the phone up, cleared the table and went to the bedroom to change her clothes. Before she left, she locked her bedroom's door.

Rachel walked out of Hiram's villa with a bad mood. She felt so distressed. This one-month marriage was so unfair to her.

It was almost ten o'clock in the evening. How could he ask a girl to go out all by herself? Besides that, where should she go?

Hiram never considered Rachel's feelings because she wasn't important to him at all.

Rachel slowly walked outside of the villa. When she saw some luxurious cars driving closer to her, she consciously moved away and avoided to be noticed by them.

She went straight to the gates of the Tulip Palace. She didn't want to stay anywhere she could see Hiram. She would rather go and spend one night at Celine's house.

After Rachel left the Tulip Palace, she felt that someone was stalking her again. Rachel vigilantly looked around. There were no passersby in the street. She started to feel very scared.

There were usually taxi cabs passing by even if it was late. But unfortunately, she couldn't see any taxi.

Then suddenly…

Something blocked her sight; she couldn't see anything.

Rachel was wrapped in a sack. Someone immediately lifted and carried her into a minivan that was on the roadside.

"Hurry up! Start the engine and leave now!"

The man threw Rachel to the back seat. While catching his breath, he instructed the driver to drive away as soon as possible.

Rachel was astounded by what was happening.

This was her first time to experience such horrible event. It took her some moments to come back to her senses. Then she realized that she might have been kidnapped by someone.

"Who are you? Why are you getting me?" Rachel shouted. She couldn't understand what was happening.

The man who sat next to her pushed her to the other side and said,"Who do you think are we?"

"Are you... kidnappers?" Rachel stammered. Her heart was rapidly beating. It was so unbelievable.

'Why are they kidnapping me?

I am definitely not

A rich woman!

And I didn't come from

A rich and powerful family.

So what's their intention?

Are they trying to make fun of me?' Rachel thought to herself in confusion.

"Yes, you guessed it right! We are kidnappers. And we are kidnapping you!" said the man next to her. He laughed wickedly while touching her body.

"What are you doing?! Don't touch me!", Rachel yelled.

Rachel was very frightened. She trembled in fear and tried her best to cringe. She was in a sack. She could only see a little light through the tiny gap of the sack.

The kidnapper groped her body. When he touched something, he took out a dagger and cut through the sack. Rachel was startled and moved away.

The kidnapper took out the phone from her pocket.

Then, he handed the phone to the man who was sitting in front and said,"Boss, here is her phone."

The man in front took the phone and switched it on. He checked her contacts and dialed one number.

"Hello, is that Mr. Rong?" the kidnapper said.

Rachel didn't know why she was kidnapped. But she finally understood the reason after she heard what the kidnapper said on the phone.
