Cassandra was starting to get more and more anxious and uneasy as the minutes passed. She had a strong feeling that something very bad was about to happen.

Clearly, the women in front of her were here to cause trouble. 'Stupid! How stupid I was to believe that they could actually be serious about buying the place, ' Cassandra thought with regret.

"Give me the phone and get out, now!"

Cassandra demanded. She looked at the two with firm authority. The two shameless women did not scare her.

"Wow, take it easy, will you? We only came here to see the place. Is that the proper way to treat your customers, Miss Qin? By driving them away?"

Amanda scoffed. What's done is done. All she wanted to do was to intimidate Cassandra and show her what she was capable of. So what if she looked like some uncivilized tramp? Her image was the least of her concerns. Right now, she was happy for as long as Cassandra was irritated.

"You know very well why I must treat you this way. I don't have to remind you of what you just did and the real reason why you're here. I will not say this again: Get out, now!"

Cassandra raised her voice sternly with a frown. Then, she waited for Amanda and Ivy to do as they were told. However, the two only exchanged knowing looks but still did not back off.

"Or else, what? I'm curious what you'll do about it," Amanda said mockingly. "I know what you're planning. You're going to Rufus, right? You'll cry your heart out and tell him that his fiancee scratched you. But here's the thing: Do you think he'll believe you without proof?" she continued.

A sinister smile was on Amanda's face. Arrogance filled her as she was sure that there were no witnesses. It would be Cassandra's word against hers otherwise.

Just then, the door was suddenly opened. Against the light, they saw a tall, well-built man walk into the room.

"Of course I will believe her," said a cold, calm voice.

It was Rufus. With a furrowed brow, he threw a cold, judging look at Amanda and Ivy. But when he turned to Cassandra, suddenly, it turned to concern and reassurance.

"Sorry, I'm late, Cassandra,"

he said to her gently. He was informed by his men that Cassandra was going to entertain interested customers in Lyndsy's studio that afternoon. But then, he also received news that Amanda was going there with Ivy.

Unconvinced that they were really interested buyers, he hurried over without a second thought. His anger shot up overhearing what Amanda told Cassandra when he arrived; he would never have expected the Amanda he knew, with her pure and innocent front, would say those were words.

The moment he came in and saw the two women standing in front of Cassandra and the latter with scratches on her neck, everything immediately made sense.

His heart sank, partly because he worried about Cassandra, and partly because he hated himself for ever believing in Amanda.

"Seems that I have been too nice to you, Amanda,"

said Rufus as he approached her. Amanda was now very pale. She trembled as she had never heard Rufus talk to her this way.

"She started it, I swear!"

Amanda blurted, pointing at Cassandra. Naturally, the real culprit would be the first one to po

have a heart?"

She found it so difficult to accept that Rufus was leaving her for Cassandra after all that she had done for him.

"Whatever you have done, you did it for yourself and to get what you want. But for me, all you ever did for me was to lie and hurt the woman I love. What you have for me is not real love,"

Rufus answered back. By now, he had already realized how crazy Amanda was. He would not have believed it if he didn't see it with his own eyes.

"Oh...now, I get it..." Amanda said slowly. "Everything I've done...They're nothing to you because you don't love me at all. Right, Rufus?"

Tears streamed down her face. She caught herself almost screaming the last few words.

"That's right, I don't love you. You can go now,"

Rufus replied calmly. He wanted her to leave. He no longer wanted to argue. He just wanted it all to end.

Amanda made no response this time. She gave Rufus a resentful look before looking Cassandra straight in the eye.

She stared at her intently. The resentment in her eyes devoured her inch by inch.

Then, she straightened herself, raised her chin, and walked out of the room as proud as a peacock. But as soon as she got out of the door, she burst into tears like no one else was watching.

Cassandra felt overwhelmed when she heard her sob.

"You might have been a little bit too harsh, Rufus. She's just a girl..."

Cassandra somehow felt sorry for Amanda. Her conscience always got the best of her.

"He who shows mercy to an enemy denies it to himself, my dear,"

Rufus said seriously. He still showed no compassion for Amanda and no longer wanted to talk about her. Come to think of it, it was very likely that she had fooled him before. But what she did today was no longer tolerable.

Stretching out his rough hand, Rufus touched the scratches on Cassandra's neck gently. This filled him with sadness.

"Does it hurt? Let's go to the hospital and have them treated,"

he said worriedly. However, when he took her hand as they were about to leave, Cassandra stopped him.

"No, thank you. I'm waiting for someone, actually," she said in polite refusal.?
