Brian's words dropped like a bombshell in the tiny room. The shock was so intense that Steven Xia forgot the pains emanating in every part of his body. David and his men were staring, their mouths agape in surprise. Then fear set in over all their hearts as they looked at Brian.

Pensive, Molly fluttered her eyes and furrowed her brows. She was staring in confusion at the cold king from hell, and thinking, 'Was he referring to me? That's impossible! It can't be me!' Although Molly felt that the man was a little bit familiar, she was sure she didn't know him at all.

"Mr.... Mr. Brian Long! Did you say... Did you... mean..." David came back to his senses and stammered. In fear, his face turned a dark shade of red. With his voice trembling, he continued, "Did you mean... Molly Xia...? She is... your woman?"

Brian looked at Molly's shocked face and grinned widely. However, the look in his eyes was still very cold, slightly complementing the cruel nature of his smile.

He shifted his eyes from Molly to David, and enquired in a dead, indifferent voice, "Why? Is there a problem?"

"No, no... of course... not!"

David hastily shook his head and waved his hands. His face went pale in his agitation.

He had already investigated Steven Xia's background. Steven didn't have any strong relations behind him, but he had a beautiful daughter. So David had carried out the plans the night before. But he had never known that Molly was Mr. Brian Long's woman.

However, the facts didn't matter! Since Mr. Brian Long had personally showed up there, it was clear that he would protect Molly. For David and his men, the situation was so desperate and unfortunate that they wished the ground would explode and swallow them this instant!

"Mr. Brian Long! I'm terribly sorry. I... didn't know she was your woman!" David tried to explain. He seemed like he was going to cry. Then, he turned to his men, glared and ordered, "Hurry up! Raise them up from the floor! NOW!"

"Yes... yes, boss!"

David's men immediately rushed to help Steven and Molly off the floor. With his wounded face, Steven curiously looked at Brian, and then shifted his eyes towards Molly. He was perplexed and couldn't understand what was going on.

Molly herself couldn't keep her eyes off Brian since he had uttered those shocking words. She wondered why this man would come to help her. But, she wasn't stupid or ignorant to think that he had come there without a very specific reason. He must have had an ulterior motive.

"Tony!" Brian looked at the confused look in Molly's pure eyes and slowly ordered. His dark eyes glimmered above his evil smile.

Tony understood what Brian wanted him to do. He took out a cheque from his pocket and said coldly to David, "According to gangland rules, we shall pay you two hundred thousand."

David looked at the cheque in Tony's hand. Stunned, he put on a baffled look and replied," Since she's Mr. Brian Long's wife, then the m

oney..." He paused, and continued with a gulp, "Please forget about the money!"

He didn't dare take the cheque. In his mind, he only prayed that Mr. Brian Long wouldn't punish him in the future. That was his only wish at the moment!

Brian slightly furrowed his brows as he heard David's words. He seemed displeased, and said slowly, "First, she is only my woman, not my wife; second, do you think I am an unreasonable person, and wouldn't obey gangland rules?"

His voice was low but so imperative that David's heart pounded with fear and his breath seemed to stop. From what Brian had said, Molly was only one of his toys. But even so, David couldn't offend her.

Looking at the cheque in Tony's hand, he was confused about his next move. Should he, or should he not take it...

Tony said with a smile," Don't make Mr. Brian Long lose his patience!"

Hearing that, David instantly reached out and took the cheque from his hand. Looking at Brian, he bowed down and thanked him in great courtesy," Mr. Brian Long, thank you! Thank you so much!"

Brian paid no attention to his gratitude and went straight towards the door. Tony gestured Molly to bring Steven with her. After they had left, Tony turned around and, looking meaningfully at David, he also left the room.

"Boss... Mr. Brian Long wasn't as horrible as the rumors had said!" one of David's men commented after a sigh of relief when they all had left. "He was so generous in giving us the money!"

David kicked the man right in his belly, spat in his face and roared, "We won't get even a chance to spend this money, dammit!"


It was already dark outside. Some stars twinkled indistinctively in the sky. Looking at them, Molly was reminded of lights in the dark. Dim, but hopeful.

"Hello... Thank you!" Molly said as she held Steven's arm and looked at Brian, who was standing and waiting in front of her.

"Why did you thank me?" An evil smile crept across Brian's face. He said slowly, "Miss Xia, do you think you won't need to repay my loan?"

"No!" Molly instantly tried to explain. "I will surely pay you back! But, please give me some time..."

"Give you some time?" Brian sneered with contempt. With a dark look in his eyes, he said, "What a pity... My time is so precious!"

Molly gnawed on her lower lip. She knew he had come to save her with a purpose, so she asked cautiously, "Then... what do you want?"

Brian slowly walked up to Molly. Squinting disdainfully at Steven, who was wearing a painful look, he shifted his eyes to Molly. The tough and strong look flickering in her eyes slightly struck a chord in his heart.

It was like the look... Becky had when she came face to face with any difficulty.

"For one month..." Brian spoke out a time, and noticed a sudden happy look in Molly's eyes. She must have thought he meant to give her one month's time to repay the loan. However, his eyes turned dark and, grinning, he continued in a firm voice, "Be my woman!"
