The photos were taken under dark light. In the night shadow, the two figures seemed to be standing close and gazing at each other with affection in their eyes. Cassandra bent down to pick up the evidence of her offense. She tried to act composed in front of Lionel.

"These photos were taken on the same day you graduated from Sapienza University in Rome. Didn't you tell me you didn't know Rufus before? Then how is it possible that you and he showed up on the same cruise?"

Lionel's lips twisted in disdain, his anger barely restrained. He had gotten hold of these photos by accident. Apparently, on the day of Cassandra's graduation, Rufus had been with her.

They had known each other for a long time, and his wife lied to him about it!

However, Cassandra knew nothing about when these photos were clicked. She had been drunk that night and could not remember what she had done until she became sober.

She had no idea Rufus was on the cruise that night. As for the photos, she didn't know how they were taken and by whom. She wasn't even aware they existed till now.

"Cassandra, you better explain this to me!"

At her prolonged silence, Lionel grew more and more furious. His sharp, cold eyes were locked on Cassandra's face as he forced her to answer his question.

"There were a lot of guests on the cruise. I didn't know that Rufus was there. As you can see, these photos were taken from that angle on purpose. And even if he was on the same cruise, I swear I didn't meet him that night,"

Cassandra said unemotionally. She wasn't nervous or flurried at Lionel's harsh voice. He couldn't intimidate her. She slowly lifted up her chin and looked at Lionel defiantly, adding, "If you don't believe me, just wait for Rufus and ask him face to face. Or you can make this a bigger issue and tell your father that Rufus and I are having an affair. You'd like that, wouldn't you?"

The expression on Lionel's face turned inscrutable at the sarcasm in her words. Cassandra was clearly threatening him. She didn't believe that he had the courage to do just as she said.

"Cassandra, do you really think I will believe your words?"

Lionel wasn't a fool. He knew that whoever was behind the camera took these pictures on purpose. However, it didn't change the fact that Cassandra and Rufus had met each other in Rome.

"You've never believed me though, have you? No matter what I say, it is all futile because you never listen to me. I have nothing to say abo

assed and he did nothing. Cassandra opened her eyes at last. Lionel let go of her and dropped his hands to his side.

He didn't touch her again.

"I don't hit women. But Cassandra, you will regret what you said to me today. That's not a threat. It's a promise. Now get out of my office!"

Lionel regained his breath even as his eyes burned with anger. He pointed to the door to make her leave.

Without another glance at Lionel, Cassandra spun around and walked out of his office.

As she made her exit, she realized that her legs were shaking. She had thought Lionel would actually hit her. Cassandra inhaled slowly, trying to make up for her guilty conscience.

After all, Rufus and she…

The thought made her face lose all color. With her hands on the handrail next to her, Cassandra tried to catch her breath.

She didn't think Lionel could be so single-minded in his zeal for power. Rufus just left, and Lionel had already devised a plan to kick his brother out of his position.

Lionel and Rufus were brothers. They shared the same father. Did that mean nothing to Lionel?

"Cassandra?"

Suddenly, she heard a young woman call out her name and it snapped her back to reality. Her thoughts skittered away from Lionel and Rufus. Cassandra turned around. She saw a woman in a black and white dress standing not far away from her, a sweet smile on her face.

Confused, Cassandra furrowed her brows in an attempt to identify who she was.

Before she could do so, however, the woman had run up to her and enveloped her in a cozy hug. She sounded elated when she said, "Oh my gosh! Cassandra, it is you! I can't believe my eyes!"
