Wanda began to find some hope.

She was certain that there was help in that light,

albeit far in the distance. Life usually indicated one thing, and that was the modern civilization. In that sense, light also meant there were people nearby. A smile suddenly appeared on her face. Her face was lit up amidst the darkness that covered her. After a long walk,

Wanda finally met the light.

A three-storied villa stood in front of her.

The light had led her to that area.

Wanda felt the warmth spread from the bottom of her heart, and she had a sudden episode of serenity.

That night, she had learned the importance and beauty of light. That was the first time her tough demeanor actually yearned for the light during the darkest hours of the night.

The gate of the villa was ajar. The hall on the first floor was all lit up, and delicate curtains shimmered under the light.

The room felt warm and looked inviting.

Wanda had already used up all her strength in traversing the forest. She was tired, hungry, and scared.

At that moment, she felt like a wandering bird.

It felt as if she had suddenly found her way back to her nest. She gently pushed the door open and decided to walk inside.

Soon, she found herself standing by the door of the house. Wanda felt as if intrusion was her only choice. At that moment, she decided to knock the door. "Hello? Hello? Is anybody home?"

Wanda knocked incessantly at the door.

Her urgent knocks were exceptionally harsh, especially in that quiet night.

After some time, the closed door remained hinged.

It seemed like no one was in that house. 'Why would the lights be lit then?' Wanda asked herself. She turned around and looked at the dark forest behind her. Once again, the darkness crept on her.

'No, no! I won't go back to that dark place! Please, please, open the door!'

Wanda prayed silently as she knocked at the door again. Only this time, she knocked harder.

She bent down and pressed her ear against the door. She was hoping to hear people murmur inside the villa.

Suddenly, the door swung open. Before she could even think, Wanda followed the door into the house. Her impulsiveness left her stumbling to the ground.

"Ah!" Wanda screamed as she fell.

The impact was not that bad. Instead, she found the floor to be somewhat comforting.

Wanda became utterly confused.

As she opened her eyes, Wanda found herself inches from the floor.

Only then did Wanda realize that she was being held up by a pair of warm hands.

Fear had followed her wherever she went this day.

And at that time, she had already used up all her strength. In the comfort of that room, Wanda fainted before even knowing who was holding her up. She fell into a deep sleep. When she opened her eyes,

a handsome face appeared before her. She felt stunned and was unable to move.

"Well, I must say, I do appreciate the way you look at me," the handsome man said as he stared back at her with a pair of smiling eyes.

Wanda bolted straight up. She moved so fast that their heads bumped into one another.

The pain shook her head dizzy. She took a deep breath and rubbed her forehead with her hand. She looked around and found herself lying on a soft sofa. A man sat on the tea table beside her. He too looked down at her.

Wanda could tell that he was tall, though he was sitting now. He casually wor

e a robe, with its belt loosely tied on his waist. His slightly exposed neckline entailed his strong and muscular physique.

Soon after, Wanda found that her wound had been bandaged.

The man frowned when he saw the clothes Wanda was wearing.

Wanda had no time to change from her uniform. She opted to escape the No.3 Mansion in that suit. Her clothes were rugged from her trip in the woods. Beneath the uniform, Wanda wore a short skirt.

"You are from No.3 Mansion, huh?" The man's sudden words frightened Wanda. She couldn't help but pull herself away from him.

"So, you escaped?" The man smiled at her again.

"I'm really sorry to bother you this late. I'm leaving right now!"

Wanda stood up and went to the door. Then, she pulled the door with her hand, but it didn't move even a bit. The man came over, reached out his hand to keep the door closed, and looked at her with a smile. "You're already here. Where else would you go?"

"I'm going home," Wanda said with a tired long face. She regretted having the impulse to stay at that place.

"Home?" the man snorted. "Where can a person who had just escaped from No.3 Mansion possibly go?" He raised Wanda's chin, and she quickly took a step back. However, she was pulled back by the man once again. He held her waist and said, "If the kitten won't listen to me, then she will be taken away and her sharp teeth will be broken out for her."

Wanda struggled hard to get rid of his claws.

"In the whole South Sea City, only I can protect you."

His words calmed Wanda down.

At that time, she heard footsteps come from outside. The man raised his eyebrows gently and smiled. "Someone got here fast! Little kitten, if you don't want to be caught by the bad guy, go upstairs and hide."

Wanda rushed upstairs without any hesitation.

She then heard the neat voice of Quincy's subordinates, "Mr. Aaron."

Wanda was kind of surprised to find that her host was associated with Quincy.

"Where is she?"

Wanda was shocked to hear Quincy's voice.

Aaron got closer to Quincy and said in a low voice, "You want her?" Well, tough luck. I won't give her to you. You can't take her away from me."

Quincy slowly and confidently walked towards the sofa and sat down. With a sarcastic smile, he said, "You can protect her, but I need to tell you that I'm going to take her uncle's arm."

"Mr. Qin, it's rare for you to come to my place voluntarily. I didn't expect that you came here just to bully a girl. Tell me, how much did she owe you? I'll pay her debt instead!"

"I do not think you have the money to pay her debt. Girl, I'll give you three seconds to come out. Don't test my patience, woman," Quincy said for everyone to hear.

"One."

"Two."

Wanda had already run downstairs. Looking at her pale face, Quincy smiled and said, "Very good!" He then stood up and walked towards the door.

When Wanda passed by Aaron, he grabbed her hand and said softly, "I've said that only I can protect you in South Sea City. If you stay here, no one would dare to harm you!" He then turned to look at Quincy. "Brother, how much does this kitten owe you? I'll pay her debt right now!"

'Brother...' Wanda couldn't help but echo his word. She wakefully looked at Aaron who held her hand. Turning around and looking at their hands, Quincy couldn't help frowning. Quincy had just heard how Aaron addressed Wanda.
