"Miss Xia, Mr. Long wants to see you," said Tony.

Molly's stomach dropped right away upon hearing what Tony had said. She turned her head a little and looked at the villa, wondering why he wanted to see her all of a sudden. She bit her lips and then answered without arguing, "Okay, I see." Then she took a deep breath, went back to the villa, and ran quickly towards Brian's study. She wouldn't want to be late and annoy Brian as she was afraid of being punished.

Brian stood by the window of his study while keenly looking at Molly running back to the villa. A hint of anger flashed through his eyes as he watched.

His mouth was slightly turned down at its corners that made him look so strangely cool yet wicked. A dead silence enveloped his study while he stood there without uttering a word.

In a minute, the silence was broken by a knock at the door. "Come in!" Brian said as he turned around slowly to face the door.

Hearing this, Molly opened the door and saw Brian intently looking at her. She felt a bit disturbed when she saw him staring at her condescendingly with hands in his pockets. Still catching her breath from running and feeling so conscious, Molly stammered the words, "I.... heard.... from..."

She paused as she suddenly realized that she didn't even know the name of the man who had just talked to her. So, she just asked embarrassingly, "You want to see me?"

"Are you busy?"Brian quickly responded by asking her with a complete poker face while he looked at Molly wryly standing at the door.

Molly smacked her lips and murmured, "Yeah.... I have to work at night...."

She didn't like working in the casino but the high pay and considerable tips could support her family. It paid her mother's medication and Daniel's tuition. So though she wouldn't want to work there, she knew that she couldn't afford to lose it.

Brian looked at her with piercing eyes which sharply squinted after hearing her words. A tension developed in the air right away and Molly feeling it, went short of breath.

Molly knew that he was mad and tried to scheme something to punish her, so she had to explain right away to avoid the punishment. She was afraid of facing him directly but knew that she had to. Taking several steps back, she swallowed in fear and bit her lips while staring at Brian silently. Then after a while, she finally found her voice and said, "You.... said whatever...."

Brian looked calmly while staring at Molly maliciously. He frowned when he realized how afraid she was as he caught her looking panic-stricken and her hands grabbing her own clothes tightly. He answered in a low and cold voice, "Yes."

Molly sighed, sounding relieved. She hadn't expected him to agree. Her eyes shined with a trace of happy light. She grinned with pleasure and said in a sweet voice, "Thank you. I promise to be back soon!"

She then beamed at Brian before retreating outside.

It was quite a walk from the villa to the casino. Molly had to hurry, or she would be late for her shift.

Brian snickered haughtily as he said to Molly's retreating figure, "Yes, you will be back.... very soon! "

A few minutes later, Molly stood woefully at the gate of the villa. The icy wind in the night pierced her to the bones but she just stood there, biting her lips tightly and staring at the closed gate. She looked so desolate that anyone who saw her would take pity on her and help her. She looked entirely different from the girl who had looked so happy a moment before.

Apparently, Molly had been fired by Jason, her manager, when she arrived at the casino. Dumbfounded, Molly freaked out at the unexpected news.

"Why?!" she asked in disbelief. She knew that she hadn't done anything to deserve it. Jason responded vaguely, "No reason.... It's the decision of the higher authority! I can't do anything about it. Sorry."

She was no fool. The decision of the higher authority was absolutely bullshit. Jason was the manager of Grand Night Casino. So the higher authority meant the big boss of Grand Night Casino.

How could a negligible waitress draw enough attention of the big boss for him to make a decision about her?

It was just how the rich played their games. They were devilishly fond of playing such shameless and stupid games.

They would pretend to treat you graciously and benevolently until you fell for their tricks. Then after a while, they would amuse themselves by watching you get caught in a dilemma that they had schemed all along.

Molly's teeth chattered because of the cold or maybe because of the rage that she felt. It was hard to say. Tears of self-pity and self-mockery streamed down her face as she cried silently under the night light.

"Clang" the gate was suddenly opened from the inside. Lisa was stunned to see Molly standing frigidly outside. Curious and worried at the same time, she said with an affable smile: "Miss Xia, why are you standing outside? Come in please.... It's freezing cold, "Lisa said with a sense of urgency to convince Molly.

But Molly didn't say a word. She just stood there and looked at Lisa, thinking that Lisa must have been used to women like her.

Molly nodded her head a bit, and then followed Lisa into the villa. Even though she lived a humble and hard life, she wanted to keep her dignity. Despite the rage that she was feeling, she would still keep her head held high, no matter what. She wouldn't let herself lose it. She was determined to do her best to pull herself together. She had to look indifferent so as to give others no chance to laugh at her.

When she entered the study, Molly saw Brian reading a book on the sofa. Beside him was a table on which a British style tea set, with elegant prints on a white background, was steaming.

Two cups of tea!

But, he was alone in the study... He must have been waiting for her!

Molly thought and smiled ironically.

Brian had been fooling her around all along. It was as warm as spring in the study, but when Molly figured out the truth, she felt colder than standing outside in the snow.

Brian took a quick glance at Molly when she came in and then turned his eyes back to the book again. Keeping his eyes fixed on the page, he said to Molly indifferently, "Come and read with me."

Brian's voice was low but magnetic, he sounded lazily but with a strong tone of authority that nobody would dare to say "No".

Molly stared at Brian with fire in her eyes. She gnashed her teeth and walked towards Brian. Molly fired a question in a huff, "Did you order Jason to fire me?"

"Yeah." Brian admitted without hesitation. He didn't even move or raise his head and just kept on reading the book calmly. He didn't feel guilty about it at all.

"You said I could work as I like..." Molly clenched her fists, shivering with rage.

"Yes, you can work if you like, but...." Brian raised his head slowly and then leaned his back against the sofa. Staring at Molly with his sharp eyes, he said in a deep and slow voice, "It depends on me whether you could find a job or not. You got it? "

Molly's face turned white abruptly. With eyes wide open, she stared at Brian's face which looked indifferent and innocent as if he had done nothing wrong. Trying her best not to lose control of her emotions, Molly took a deep breath and tightened her lips in anguish.

Suddenly she realized that she had lost her job not only today but also tomorrow or any other day in this month. She wouldn't be able to find another job anywhere as long as she stayed in the villa.

Her nose twitched and finally, the tears that she had been trying to keep from falling, rolled down her eyes. She lost all hope as if the heavens had cursed her. Molly wept and muttered in a trembling voice, "Why? Why did you do this to me? I have compromised…. Ah…."

Before Molly could even finish her words, Brian suddenly pulled her arms, setting her on the sofa next to him. The next thing she knew, she was confined in his strong arms and he was kissing her wildly. With nowhere to run, and nothing she could do, Molly had no choice but to accept what was happening to her.
