Brian intensely gazed at Molly with his deep eyes. He put down the newspaper he was reading and leaned backwards slowly. Then he squinted at Eric with a long, meaningful look.

Molly just stared at his icy-cold face, which emanated a cruel aura. She was standing still, with her arms hanging on her sides. Her fists suddenly clenched so tightly that her body slightly trembled. All she felt at the moment was humiliation and rage.

"Hey, little Molly, have you had your breakfast yet?" Eric ignored Brian's inquisitive look and asked Molly abruptly. He noticed that Molly's face instantly turned pale when she saw his brother. A mysterious light gleamed in his eyes which was hard for anyone to read. But he kept smiling in a harmless but teasing manner.

Molly slowly shifted her eyes from Brian to Eric. His strange smile made her feel very cold and her heart sank. She felt like she had been dropped into an ice-box, freezing her whole body.

"Come here. Let's have breakfast together. I'll give you the cheque later!" Eric said. He kept smiling and signaled the servant with his eyes.

Brian was still silent, and his face was devoid of any expressions. He looked like he was a mere audience to these two.

"You did it on purpose!" It took quite a while for Molly to find her voice. Her eyes were fuming with rage, and she was looking at Eric with an intensity that would have burned everything in its path, trying to read the expressions on his face. She wanted to find some leads as to what was going on, but she failed.

From the very first time she had laid eyes on Eric, Molly had felt that he was a dangerous man. But she still had been ignorant enough to think that he would help her.

Now, all she could do was mock her own self.

She cast a furious glance at Brian, and, before Eric had a chance to say a word, turned around furiously and started walking towards the door with heavy steps. For some reason, her nose suddenly twitched and her eyes started turning red with tears.

"Hold on!" Eric shouted.

Molly paused as she heard these words. It had been similar words the night before, and she had hoped this man would help her. She hadn't even cared to think how he had known her name.

Eric looked at Molly's stiffened body and said slowly, "Don't you...

need the money now?"

Tears now flooded her eyes. She raised her head, and, trying terribly to hold her tears back, turned around. She squinted angrily at Eric and replied in a furious rage, "I don't need it anymore!"

She sniffed and swallowed. Now, she turned towards Brian and, with her voice trembling, shouted, "So this is the game you wealthy people enjoy playing! You are excited to see other people embarrassed and ashamed. You find it so interesting, don't you?"

Her eyelashes were fluttering, and tears had now started falling down. Her chin still quivered with agitation as she let out these words in fury.

Brian merely furrowed his eyebrows in an indifferent voice. "In my world, I am sure to get everything I want. No person, and not a thing is allowed to break into it by accident!"

He said these words imperiously, making Molly go cold from head to toe. He betrayed no signs of any emotion and simply looked at Molly's tearful face. His eyes were shining like crystals.

"I never wanted to break into your world. You went out of your way to save me last night. YOU involved yourself with me!" Molly roared. She didn't care what Brian meant. She merely let everything out, "Now, why do you blame me for breaking into your world?"

Brian slowly stood up and walked towards her. He gently stroked her cheeks and said in a calm voice, "If you want to control your life, you've got to live at the top of the world. Otherwise, you would only keep on giving in to other people's demands. Understand?"

He raised his eyebrows at his wet fingers and turned sharply towards his brother. "Eric, if you don't want me to throw you back to Dragon Island, I suggest you not play your tricks behind my back!"

"Brother..." Eric slightly frowned and said, "I don't like the word 'throw'!"

Molly's eyes suddenly widened in shock. She turned her eyes towards Brian. She had already forgotten her sorrow.

Eric had addressed this man as his brother, Which could only mean one thing- he was the man who had slept with her the night before yesterday!

Her mind was a total mess now. She could no longer think and, with continuously reddening eyes, turned towards Brian, Whose eyes looked like a black hole that would swallow up her entire existence and she wouldn't be able to escape!
