The view outside the window was horrifying. The sky seemed enraged right now. The rain was pouring violently. A brilliant flash of lightning lit the sky, followed by a thunder explosion. The shrill sound of branches broken by the lightning resounded through the darkness.

The two wall lamps were on. The window was swaying violently with the wind, giving the room an eerie ambiance.

"Why are you doing this to me? I don't even know you." Kathryn An's back was against the cold wall. Tears were streaming down her face, and her voice was trembling with fear. She was on her way to the shopping mall when she was kidnapped. She was knocked unconscious, and when she opened her eyes, she was already in this strange room.

Patrick Ye stared at her. With a faint smile, he asked in a low voice, "Why don't you take a guess?"

She was bewildered. She didn't understand what he meant. The complicated emotions in his eyes were also difficult to read. Was this a kind of a joke? But there seemed to be a trace of pain and hatred in his voice.

Her heart was overwhelmed by misgivings. The gloomy atmosphere outside added up to her grief. She felt like she was trapped in an ice cave.

All of a sudden, Patrick Ye tore her dress violently, exposing her skin to the cold air.

"No!" Kathryn An pleaded. She stretched out her hands to stop him, but he held her hands and pressed them against the wall above her head. When the wind blew hard, the window opened wide, and the rain splashed onto her body. It was freezing cold. She wanted to hide, but she couldn't escape from his grip.

He took out a piece of paper from his pocket and unfolded it in front of her. He then said, "If you don't want to play with me, I don't mind venting my anger on David An. What do you think?"

She stared at the piece of paper in front of her with her big eyes. The handwriting and the signature were very familiar to her. She was sure that it was written by her brother, David An. Shocked, she stammered, "He owes you ten million?" Her face turned pale in an instant, and beads of sweat formed on her forehead. "Are you taking me as his payment?"

His eyes narrowed when he saw the fear and panic on Kathryn An's face. "You think too highly of yourself. You're not that valuable. David owes me a huge amount of gambling debts and hurts one of my men. If I go through the legal process, I'm sure he will have prison meals for a couple of years."

David An, her half-brother, was the son of her father and his ex-wife. He had always been rebellious since he was a child. His bad character had always caused trouble for their family.

Seeing that she was still struggling to escape, Patrick Ye kissed her trembling lips overbearingly. She felt she couldn't breathe.

With his ruthless kiss, he never intended to give her a chance to make a choice. He used this method to tear up her dignity and let pain crush her soul.

When she was already gradually losing her strength, he threw her away to the floor. Another flash of lightning lit the sky, followed by thunder. The white light shone on her pale face.

He looked at her with his bloodthirsty and gloomy eyes. Complex emotions were written all over his face. Only he who knew that real reason why he was treating her like this. The truth was, it had nothing to do with the gambling debts.

After staring at her for quite a while, he turned around and left her alone, half-conscious. Left alone, she felt more anxious. She prayed that he would not involve her parents in this mess or let them know about it.

Since D City was a coastal city, the summer weather was changeable. The changes were even faster than tearing a book.

As the night deepened, the rainstorm attacked the city again.

Since Patrick Ye left, Kathryn An stayed in the room alone. Two servants came in to clean the room, but they just ignored her as if she wasn't there.

But while the servants were cleaning, she overheard their conversation. She found out that he was the CEO of Ye Group. Although she didn't know much about him, he was nothing to her but a devil.

Flashes of lightning and thunder explosions shook the room like hell. She threw away the quilt in her hand and rolled down from the bed. She curled up in the corner of the room and trembled.

As soon as the lightning and thunder stopped, the room became dark again. Since it was so quiet, the raindrops on the window could be heard clearly. It was still raining heavily outside. Once again, the inexplicable fear overwhelmed her.

At this time, the door was pushed open from the outside. She stared at the door with her fearful eyes. She held her breath as she waited for Patrick Ye to appear at the door.

But with the light coming from the corridor, she saw a middle-aged woman standing at the door. She heaved a sigh of relief.

"Miss An." The woman called her name while turning on the lights. Kathryn An had a clear view of the woman. She was wearing decent clothes and had a stern expression on her face. There were also two maids standing behind her.

"Who are you?" Kathryn An asked as she looked up at the woman.

"I'm Mr. Ye's butler. Everyone calls me Lily." Lily wore an expressionless face just like Patrick Ye's. After introducing herself, she waved her hand slightly, and the maids behind her walked towards Kathryn An.

"What are you doing?" Kathryn An felt scared at once. She tried to move back, but her back was already against the cold wall.

"Mr. Ye wants to see you," Lily replied.

When she heard that she w

as going to see Patrick Ye again, Kathryn An felt like she was running out of breath. Facing a beast like him was indeed terrifying.

However, she had no other choice but to follow Lily to the dining room. While walking, she got a chance to look around. The house was huge. The corridor was like a maze, but the panoramic glass provided a good visual effect.

"Mr. Ye, Miss An is here." Lily moved slightly to give way for Kathryn An to walk in.

Patrick Ye sat at the table, reading a document in his hand. Without raising his head, he said to Lily, "Okay. You can go now."

"Yes, Mr. Ye." Lily then turned around and left.

Kathryn An stood still and stared at him blankly. She couldn't help but notice the gloom and sadness on his handsome face. He didn't want to be disturbed when he was eating, so he was always alone in the dining room.

She noticed that the decorations inside the house were simple and modern. The dining room was on the first floor, facing the swimming pool in the courtyard. Since the walls were glasses, the view outside was clear. The lights were dim, giving the house a harmonious atmosphere.

Only then did she realize that the room she was in just now was right above the dining room. Anyway, she was not in the mood to memorize the rooms in her enemy's house.

"Sit down." He raised his head and look at her, locking all her embarrassment in his eyes.

Without any hesitation, she walked to a seat a little far away from him and sat down.

"Why are you sitting so far away from me? Are you afraid that I will eat you?" he commented. He then put the document aside and wiped his hands with a wet tissue. Without saying anything, he picked up the knife and the fork and began to eat.

She swallowed hard. Her stomach was grumbling, but she didn't move until she saw that he had already started eating.

The sumptuous dinner prepared on the table could feed even a dozen of people. If it was an ordinary day in her life, she would definitely enjoy the meal. But with her situation right now, she didn't have any appetite. Although the food was delicious, she felt like she couldn't swallow it.

"Block 12, Manning Lane. Can you still remember? We've met there before," he said after a moment of silence between them.

"Block 12, Manning Lane? We've met there before?" Obviously, she was stunned. They had met before? She was lost in thought, trying to remember when and how it happened.

He put down his knife and fork, picked up the napkin, and wiped the corners of his mouth. He stared at her coldly and said, "Don't you want to know why I treated you like that a while ago? Don't you want to know the real reason?"

"The real reason?" Kathryn kept on repeating his words. She was totally confused. "Is it not because of David's gambling debts?"

"Stupid." He didn't hide his contempt for her at all.

"What do you mean?" All of a sudden, her expression froze, and the fork in her hand fell on the plate. She remembered it now.

Seeing that the expression on her face changed, his eyes darkened.

That was three months ago.

The winter vacation was over, and it was the first week of the new semester. Kathryn An went shopping with her friend.

The snow had melted, so the road went back to its original appearance.

With her bag in her hand, Kathryn An ran after her friend. Her cheeks flushed as she yelled with a smile, "Lucy, stop running. I will definitely punish you once I catch you."

"Come and chase me. I'm sure you can't catch me with my speed. I'll tell everyone in the class that you have a crush on the school hunk. I know that they will all believe in me," Lucy Xu teased. Lucy Xu was Kathryn An's roommate and best friend.

Kathryn An's face turned even redder upon hearing what Lucy Xu said. "You asked me to write that love letter for you. How could you use it against me?"

"Well, I haven't signed it yet. So if I put your name on it, I'm sure they will believe it's really yours." Lucy laughed happily. She was used to teasing Kathryn An like this.

"Lucy! Just wait until I catch you!" Kathryn An made a detour to attack Lucy Xu from the other side. But she didn't expect that she would suddenly bump into a man.

She staggered two steps back and almost fell down. Luckily, Lucy Xu was quick enough to hold her. "Are you okay?" Lucy Xu then turned to the man and yelled, "Hey! What's wrong with you? Are you blind?"

Kathryn An held her hand and said, "Lucy, that's enough. It was me who hit him." She then looked at the man apologetically. But to her surprise, the man just straightened up his shirt and walked forward with a deadpan expression.

"What? Hey, what's wrong with you?" Lucy Xu got angrier with the man's reaction. She caught up with him. "Excuse me. Even if it was my friend's fault, do you really have to be that rude? She already admitted that she was the one who bumped into you. Why do you have such a long face?"

Kathryn An pulled Lucy Xu quickly to stop her. "Lucy, stop it. Let's go." If she didn't stop Lucy Xu, the latter would probably fight with the man.

Actually, she was not happy with the man's reaction either. But she didn't want to make a fuss over it anymore.

All of a sudden, they heard a harsh sound not too far away behind them.

"Someone was hit by a car!" Kathryn An exclaimed. She turned around and was about to have a look.

However, Lucy Xu stopped her. "Don't go there. You don't want to have a nightmare later, do you?"

Kathryn An suddenly felt scared. "You're right. Let's go."
