"You! You back off! Back! Off! If you come any closer, I... I, I will jump!"

Carla panicked. Although she was so afraid of heights, she pointed to the security guard and screamed aloud. Thirty minutes earlier, she was extremely annoyed by the guard at the front gate because he wouldn't let her inside the hotel. On the verge of giving up, as she was walking outside, she found a group of janitors entering the hotel. After brainstorming a little bit and using them as a disguise, she sneaked in alongside them. But who would have thought that the floor Terence was on needed a special ID card to get in from the elevator? She certainly did not.

There was no other way but to get off the elevator a floor lower and use the staircase to get to the intended floor she ought to reach.

Having absolutely no idea that the security system was not something to be trifled with, Carla was found trespassing by the security just moments after entering the restricted floor. There was no other way to escape apart from the window so she immediately ran straight toward it without even thinking twice. Squeezing herself on the ledge, she moved slowly toward the next window, trying to find another exit.

"I suggest you not to come any closer, sir! Or else, the big news entitled 'Young Lady Forced To Jump Out Of The Most Luxurious Hotel Of The City And Killed' will be published tomorrow. Neither you nor you could bear the responsibility!" she tried to have them threatened by abruptly pointing to one of the guards and then to the other one right next to him as she moved slowly into the other window.

She was immensely agitated about the tightness of the security and complaining within that little head of hers. 'This is way out of control! How come a hotel would have guards this many? How the hell were they able to find me?' she roared in her mind.

Beforehand, she pictured how she could use the outdoor unit of the air conditioners as steps and get to the other window. But there was nothing. 'Of course, they'd be using central air!' Carla sarcastically laughed at herself for being so naive about the situation and continued thinking, 'This is absolutely nothing like what TV dramas were suggesting!'

Hearing the uproar, Terence turned his head toward the window instantly. He furrowed his brows, and his heart tightened when he recognized the woman standing outside of the window. She was trembling while arguing with the security personnel as there were three groups of guards surrounding her. One team was on the same floor with him, the second team was on the ground floor, and the last group was equipped and climbing up the building. All of them were trying to catch this bold woman who dared to intrude.

"Carla?" he murmured hastily, then hurriedly rushed toward the window.

Sliding the window open, he stepped on the edge of the window. "Carla! Oh, my God! Give me your hand now!" Terence reached out his left hand towards the trembling woman and frightenedly shouted, stretching out his arms to reach her.

Carla almost burst into tears when she heard that familiar voice. She couldn't move after a few steps as her legs had grown sore after treading carefully on the edge of the building. Eight floors might not seem to be too high, but it was more than enough to kill her if she fell straight down.

"Carla, I need you to concentrate and give me your hand! Trust me! Just a few more inches!" he softened his voice so as not to startle her.

Terence noticed that she was constantly looking down at the security guards, so he went a little bit crazy toward them, "For all of you who are trying to seize her! Listen carefully! Catch this woman if she ever falls! If anything happens to her, I will make sure this would be your last day living in this world!"

It was only a few more inches till the security guards could get to the so-called intruder. However, when they heard the stern voice screaming from afar, they paused briefly and then quickly returned to the ground, following Terrence's order.

After the well-trained guards went down from the building, they positioned in a net shape and got ready to catch the woman in case she fell from where she was standing.

Seeing the security already

had never met a single person who got treated this well by Terence, Race nodded instantly and replied, "You have my word, Mr. Terence."

Carla then waved goodbye to them, following Race outside to the hallway. Soon after stepping out of the room, she was somewhat put at ease. Heaving out a deep sigh, she uttered to Race, "Hey Race, would you please pass a message to Terence for me? Tell him that I have to leave immediately."

"Hey, Miss Carla. Wait,"

Race turned around and stopped Carla from her tracks and politely addressed, "Mr. Terence had requested me to accompany you until he finishes his conversation with Mr. Nicholas. I am in no place to disobey. So would you please be patient and wait for a minute? I believe he will be coming shortly."

"I am not lying. I really need to go! My little brother was left at home alone. He is only 10 years old. A long time has passed since I left, but I told him that I would be back very soon! I am so worried,"

Carla finished her words and made it seem like she was extremely anxious about his safety.

However, she clearly knew that with herself always being busy with work and their parents passing away at such a young age, Sean had already learned to take care of himself. She used it as an excuse anyways because it worked every single time she was trying to get out of a situation.

"Um..."

After hearing there was a child that had been left unattended, Race hesitated. 'It is indeed unsafe for a little kid to be on his own, ' he thought.

"Race, please, I have to go now. Thank you! And please don't forget to tell Terence that I am sorry for not waiting for him. Bye!"

Carla took advantage of his moment of hesitation and grasped her chance to get away. Turning around and dashing toward the elevator as she waved to Race, she made sure that no one would be able to catch up to her.

Even though she entered the elevator, she couldn't calm herself down as the image of what had just happened kept flashing in her head. A surge of profound feelings flowed through her veins like diving atop a cliff down to the deep ocean.

For her, it was best to flee from the scene right away to avoid more questioning.

On second thought, she had finally unmasked him. From the first time that they had met, she always had the impression that Terence was a member of some gangster group since he had been chased and injured. Or, much worse, he might've been a criminal who had just come out of prison, trying to get away from someone planning their revenge. Never had she ever thought that he was actually a young master of a wealthy family! It turned out he was also a reputable man.

He had been hiding in so deep that

when she managed to eventually connect all the dots, a chill went down her spine.

"Where are you planning to escape? Huh?"
