"How did you find your way into my room?"

Shock written all over her pretty face, Cassandra sprang up. Feeling dazed, she blinked, unsure whether she was in a dream or not.

Gazing at her with lustful eyes, Rufus sauntered to her, with a mischievous half- smile on his lips as usual.

"What...are you up to, Rufus?"

As soon as he stopped beside her, he spread out his arms and wrapped her in such a tight embrace that made her blush and instinctively lower her voice.

Without uttering a word, moving or blinking, Rufus kept her in his arms. For the moment he just enjoyed the warmth with a playful smile on his lips.

The air around them began to fill with passion. Caged in his tight arms, she was forced to lean against his chest. She could hear his heartbeat, which was very steady. 'Is he distressed? Tonight, he looks restrained, unlike his usual cheerful self.'

She gave up the attempt to break free from his arms, not sure whether it was because she feared he'd blackmail her or she actually enjoyed the warmth of his hug. With an innocent look, she lifted her eyes to read his moods, but the blank look on his face gave no secrets away.

"What's wrong with you?"

unable to hold herself back, Cassandra finally asked.

Narrowing his eyes, Rufus replied, but apparently not to her question, "I like the fragrance of the perfume you're wearing."

The charm of his deep, husky voice completely disarmed her, sending a tingling of electrical current through her body. Her heartbeat raced up.

Blushing at her unintentional response, she struggled and quickly freed herself from his arms. She innocently rolled her eyes at him.

"Rufus, it is very late. Someone might find out about your coming here if you don't leave now. I just hope you're not planning to embarrass me that way,"

she muttered, well aware that deep down she was beginning to long for his affection, almost like an addiction.

In an attempt not to meet his eyes, she looked away.

With his sensual eyes, Rufus scrutinized the girl's face, a captivating smile spreading over his face.

In a low whisper, he assured her, "You don't have to fear anything. By the look in your eyes, you've fallen in love with me, and it will only be fair if we stop hiding."

At his remark, Cassandra shuddered. Involuntarily she jerked up her head, and through knitted eyebrows she wondered why she was nervous instead of angry at this moment.

It felt like

falling in love with this man, and confused because he was supposed to be her brother-in-law.

It was his unannounced appearance into her life that cost this little woman sleepless nights and highlighted her frustration with Lionel. Not sure how to best comfort the woman with her head drooping and shoulders hunched, Rufus watched her silently. He wished he could scoop her into his hands, wipe away all her tears, allay her fears and hug her forever in his loving embrace.

But he was careful not to overstep, so he simply stood there watching, until she finally spoke between her sobs, wishing him a good night.

Then, ignoring her words, he reached out his hands and cupped her chin gently between his huge palms.

After a moment, Rufus reluctantly shifted his eyes off her, and quickly walked to the window. Before Cassandra could realize, his flexible body had leaped out of the window.

Cassandra was shell shocked. She tried to scream, but all she could muster through her parched mouth was a muffled hissing. Rubbing off her tears, she called out hoarsely, "Rufus!"

Without a reply, he just gave her a smile before turning around and heading toward the gate. In the faint light, she spotted some cars which seemed to have been waiting for long.

A sense of doom suddenly crept over her.

Recalling his words, his kisses and his look earlier in her room, she realized he was bidding a farewell, only that she had failed to read his mind. 'Where is he going...' A barrage of questions began to run through her mind. Hard, nudging questions that she didn't have the slightest idea on how she was going answer.
