Brian was standing by the door with his hand in the pocket. His angular face betrayed no signs of any emotion, but his lips tightened into a thin smile. His eyes were narrowed and their coldness would have made the most composed men shiver.

He glanced indifferently at Molly and Steven, who were sitting on the floor and looked apprehensive and disheveled. David spoke in a husky voice, "Brian! What a nice surprise! What brings you here? We're honoured." He had put on a smile before speaking and, walking up to Brian, bowed obsequiously.

Inside, he was as worried as he was smiling outside. Although he couldn't think of any reason that would bring Brian there, he still had a feeling something had gone horribly wrong!

Brian Long had quite a reputation! Gangsters in the city knew they could mess with anyone, even the cops, as long as they didn't get in Brian's ways. Otherwise, they might get killed silently.

With a big smile on David's face, he chanced a glance at Brian who was in his twenties, wondering what had brought him here today.

With everyone's eyes turning towards Brian, Steven and Molly also gazed at him. He stood there majestically, much like a king looking at his vassals, making everyone feel inferior.

The room fell into an ominous silence. Only the heavy breathing of its occupants could be heard. David was getting more and more scared as Brian hadn't said a word yet. He swallowed, smiled, and said, "Brian, why don't you come inside and have a seat?" Then he turned towards his minions and shouted, "Get us some wine, the finest kind!"

One of his men breathed a sigh of relief and hurried out. It seemed as if he had been itching to leave.

Brian cast a cursory glance at David, and strode into the room, but towards Molly instead of the chair.

Steven was still lying on the ground, wailing in pain. Molly was trying to help him sit up, but she paused when

she noticed Brian walking towards her. Feeling a growing tension, she raised her head and looked at the man standing in front of her with clear eyes. There was blood at the corner of her mouth.

She didn't know who the man was, but she knew for sure that he was no ordinary man, since David had been scared when he saw him.

Molly surveyed Brian carefully. He had an angular face, black eyebrows, a straight nose and thin lips, which seemed to be enchanting even after his scary disposition. She felt like she had met him before.

Frowning, Molly lost herself in her thoughts. Theoretically she wouldn't have known someone like him.

Suddenly, Steven coughed.

His ragged coughs brought Molly out of her musings. The nervousness in the room rose again.

"Well..." David was rubbing his hands. Everyone could tell that David was very jumpy, since Brian refused to sit down. David managed to put on a smile again and said," Brian! What brings you here today? Is something wrong?"

"Hmm" Brian answered coldly. His eyes never left Molly. He realized that the woman in front of him hadn't recognized him.

His lips curved in a barely perceptible smile, and he seemed displeased, which one could see in his stark black eyes.

David glanced at Molly and Steven, frightened that he had done something wrong. His heart clanged like fifteen buckets in a single well. With a miserable look on his face, he said again, "Brian, just call me and tell me whatever you want to do next time. You don't need to come here in person."

"I came to pick up my woman!" Brian replied calmly, "which is something I need to do myself."

His voice was calm but decisive and his eyes had never left Molly even when he spoke. As he saw her slightly opened mouth and surprised face, a faint smile flickered across his lips. Molly noticed the smile, and seemed to feel the danger behind it. An inexplicable fear overpowered her!
