Wayne slapped Julia straight across her face. He was always patient and gentle with women. But a woman like Julia, who didn't appreciate what was good for her, deserved to be punished.

"If you behave yourself and serve me well, I shall treat you well. But if you disobey me..."

Wayne sneered, trailing off.

A slap to the face was enough to sober up Julia. She was not stupid enough to be sassy when she was clearly at a disadvantage. It would be silly.

Julia slightly frowned but thought better of it. She softened her tone, trying to negotiate with Wayne again. "How about this? If you let me go today, I will repay you for your kindness. How much do you want? Name your price and I will do my best to satisfy you."

People had now gathered around them. Their eyes were filled with curiosity as they stared at the man and woman fighting. Although she was pretty much concealed, Julia was afraid that she would be recognized. She had no intention of stirring up any unnecessary trouble.

She thought Wayne would consider her offer since she had asked with such sincerity. But he did not waver.

He looked Julia straight in the eyes. She could see that they were filled with lust. "I have plenty of money. I have been able to save a lot after entertaining those old women for the past two years. I am looking for something more now. I want to taste beautiful women like you," he said, smirking. "Don't worry, I will not treat you unfairly."

Julia was infuriated, and a little nauseous because she was drunk. Before she knew it, she puked all over Wayne. Her eyes widened in horror as his shirt was drenched in dirty vomit.

Wayne screamed and gripped her hand hard. "Bitch! You did it on purpose. I'll teach you a lesson today."

He let go of Julia and raised his hand to slap her. She closed her eyes waiting for his large hand to smack against the already sore skin of her cheek. But nothing happened.

She opened her eyes and saw a familiar figure standing in front of her.

Her nose twitched and tears welled up in her eyes.

"Who the hell are you? How dare you meddle in my affairs!" Wayne hung around in the bar all year round, he was familiar with all the influential people who frequented it.

Usually, he was very careful when he met such characters. He did not want to offend them and put himself in harm's way. But Terence did not come here often. Therefore, Wayne did not know him at all.

He was being spiteful and arrogant.

Wayne glowered at Terence. "I advise you to mind your own business, or you'll pay for it!"

"But what if I want to interfere?" Terence could not understand what was wrong with him. He had promised himself that he would not take pity on Julia, but he was unable to stop himself.

"Then don't blame me for being rude!" Wayne swung his fist at Terence, but he blocked it. All he needed to do was give Wayne a little push, and the latter was on the ground.

Although the movements seemed simple enough to an onlooker, Julia knew Terence had practiced self-defense. He knew tricks that Wayne was no match for.

Terence gave Wayne an icy look. "Get out of here!"

"Who the hell are you? How dare you poke your

nose in my business! You are looking for death!" Wayne stood up, bypassed Terence and tried to grab Julia. She was so scared that she clutched the hem of Terence's suit tightly.

Terence felt her grip and his heart throbbed loudly.

He clutched Wayne's wrist before he could touch Julia. The sound of something snapping could be heard and Wayne cried out in pain.

"Stop! It hurts!" Wayne screamed.

Hearing the commotion, Nelson and a couple of his peers rushed out. Caleb noticed the cold expression on Terence's face and was immediately curious. "What's wrong with Terence? Does he have a crush on this woman or what? This just doesn't seem like him."

"Nonsense. You don't know what you are talking about." Nelson frowned. He knew Terence had feelings for Julia. Even though he would throw insults her way all the time, he only repeated her name when he was drunk.

"Don't you recognize her? That is Terence's wife," Nelson explained.

"Damn it!" Caleb said, slapping his head. Realization suddenly dawned on him. He recognized Julia now. She and Terence had been married for several years. But Terence rarely brought her along when he came to attend parties. That was why Caleb hadn't recognized her right away. Rolling up his sleeves, he walked towards Wayne. Seconds later, his fist met with Wayne's face. "How dare you touch Terence's woman? Do you have a death wish?"

Caleb grabbed his hair and slapped Wayne across the face.

The latter did not utter a word. Where he had been mouthy and arrogant in front of Terence, he dared not say anything in front of Caleb.

"Caleb? Caleb, what did I do wrong? Why are you so angry?" Wayne asked, respectfully. He was still in shock by Caleb's anger.

Caleb took a hold of Wayne's face and turned it in Terence's direction. "Open your eyes and look at this man! This is my buddy. If you see him the next time, you will turn around and walk in the opposite direction. Do you understand?"

"I understand. I should not have offended them. Please forgive me and don't be angry at me." Wayne was terrified of Caleb's temper. He smacked himself in the face to show his sincerity.

It was not until then that he realized he had offended a great man, and he had to accept all the consequences.

"Get out of here!" Caleb said crossly. "If I see you in this bar again, I will beat you up."

"Okay, okay, okay..." Wayne fled without looking up.

After driving Wayne away, Caleb turned to look at Julia. His curious eyes wandered towards her face trying to see what she looked like. However, Terence covered her. He looked at Caleb and smiled, "Caleb, thank you."

"You and I are like brothers. Don't mention it." Caleb waved his hand. "Why don't you introduce her to me?"

"No. That is not going to happen." Nelson took this as his cue to speak. "Let's go, Caleb. We decided we would not go home unless we were drunk. Let's go drink."

Nelson glanced at Terence before guiding Caleb away.

Terence saw them walk away. He turned around to face Julia, but saw that she had quietly walked away while he had been talking to Caleb. He caught up with her and grabbed her arm. "Come with me, I will drive you home."
