Lionel's words echoed through the large bedroom, ringing in Cassandra's ears. Cassandra looked around, irritated. 'Doesn't Lionel dislike me? Why would he come to my bedroom at such a time?' she wondered.

'Unless…Unless he saw me in Rufus' bedroom just now!' The thought made Cassandra nervous.

"Cassandra, you haven't answered my question! Where were you just now? It's late." Lionel's question broke through Cassandra's thoughts and snapped her back to attention.

Lionel gripped Cassandra's chin harder, forcing her to look into his eyes and answer him. Cassandra shifted uncomfortably, trying not to whimper from the pain. She returned Lionel's gaze, raising her chin in angry defiance, then took a deep breath.

"I had a meeting with my friend tonight,"

she spoke slowly, trying to calm herself down.

Cassandra knew that she couldn't tell Lionel the truth right now. After all, she knew that what she had done was wrong.

"Your friend? Funny...After all those years you spent in Rome, I'm surprised that you still have friends in G City."

Lionel raised his eyebrows and snorted sarcastically. Clearly, he didn't believe Cassandra. The calmer she stood before him, never breaking his gaze, the more she could see his anger rising.

Cassandra had always been good at hiding her feelings. And cunning women angered him the most.

"Can you please let go of me? You're hurting me!"

Knowing that Lionel was suspicious of her, Cassandra tried to distract him with her weakness so that she could change the topic. The truth was that she was actually overwhelmed by the pain in her chin. This infuriated her. How dare he treated her, or any woman, in this aggressive manner! She was determined to show him

d to bring the indifferent look back into her eyes, and glared at him frigidly.

"Choke me, I dare you!"

Cassandra managed to croak, adding fuel to the fire. As Lionel became more angry, his grip on Cassandra's throat tightened.

He brought his face close to hers. "Do you think I wouldn't do that? You disgust me. Even if you stripped down naked, and threw yourself at me, I wouldn't even bother to look at you. But if you think that means you can just seduce as many men as you want, I will show you how wrong you are. You had better watch what you do. You can't hide anything from me. If I find out that you are whoring yourself out to other men, then you and your entire family are finished. Do you understand me?"

After he had snarled his last words, he let go of her and turned to leave. Cassandra dropped to the ground, unable to lift her head to defy him. She lay with one side of her face on the carpet, dumb with humiliation, trying not to gasp for breath.

Lionel took one last disgusted look at her, and slammed the door shut behind him. Finally out of his sight, Cassandra let herself collapse into shuddering, gasping sobs.
