Gabrielle was shocked when she was thrown backward. Startled, she immediately fastened her seat belt tightly and looked at Westley with a hint of resentment in her eyes.

Westley noticed that look in her eyes, but he didn't take it seriously. In his heart, he felt a little happy. He said those words to let her know that she should not do anything to annoy him. Otherwise, he would make her even unhappier.

Gabrielle understood his silent warning.

She felt a sharp pain in her heel, but she didn't want to speak.

"Gabrielle Song, if you really have any complaints about me, just say it. Don't act as if I have wronged you. If you don't want to ride in my car, you are free to get out now," Westley snapped. He really disliked seeing her looking restless and fidgeting.

"I... my feet hurt." Gabrielle was frightened by his fierce words, but she plucked up all her courage to tell him the reason.

She was actually a brave woman who could even watch horror movies and visit horror towns alone. But every time she was in front of him, she got so scared that she couldn't help but shiver.

Upon hearing what she said, Westley's expression softened. She was hurt because she wore a pair of shoes smaller than her size. Perhaps he was a little guilty, so he became less cold and arrogant.

His phone suddenly rang. When he saw that it was his assistant Alvin, he immediately answered it through his Bluetooth headphones.

"What's the matter?"

"Mr. Lu, the commerce minister wants to talk to you."

"Tell him that I'll call him back in twenty minutes." He then hung up the phone and parked his car at the roadside.

"I have something to deal with in the company, so take a taxi home." Westley drove Gabrielle out of the car without hesitation.

Gabrielle was a person with high self-esteem, and she never expected him to be kind to her. So she pushed the door open and got out of the car without saying anything.

She then slammed the car door as if secretly venting her dissatisfaction.

Westley just glanced at her indifferently then started the car.

He had already driven away when she realized that she was in a horrible place. He drove so fast just now that she didn't notice which road he took.

It turned out that she was in the middle of nowhere where cars and taxis seldom passed by. There was even no bus station nearby.

She tried to book a taxi using her mobile phone, but it wouldn't get through. Left with no choice, she called her friend, Sloane Su.

As soon as she hung up, the heavy rain suddenly poured down. She was completely caught off guard as she didn't expect it. Panic-stricken, she looked around to find a place to hide. Finally, she found a tree with dense leaves, so she ran towards it. But when Sloane Su arrived, she was still soaking wet.

"Gabrielle, get in the car!" Sloane Su immediately pushed the car door open when she saw Gabrielle shivering under the tree.

Gabrielle ran towards the car as fast as she could and got in.

"What happened? What are you doing in this place? Don't you know that you can't get a taxi here? Wipe yourself." Sloane Su tossed a towel at her.

"Well... It's a long story. I'll tell you everything later," Gabrielle replied while wiping her face with the towel.

"Okay. I'll take you home, so you can take a hot shower first. Look at your lips. They have turned purple. I'm afraid you will catch a cold later." Sloane Su drove at a faster speed to reach her apartment quickly.

As soon as they arrived, she immediately asked Gabrielle to take a hot shower. She looked for clothes she could lend Gabrielle. Then they sat on the sofa. Gabrielle was drying her hair with an uncomfortable expression on her face.

"Gabrielle, are you not feeling well? Here, have a cup of hot milk first." She was so worried about Gabrielle, so she prepared hot milk for her.

"Thank you," Gabrielle said after sneezing. She held the cup between her palms and unhurriedly took a sip.

"Look, you already caught a cold. What on earth were you doing in that place?" Sloane Su couldn't help but complain.

"Do you think I want this to happen to me? I would never want to go to that place!" Gabrielle told Sloane Su everything that happened today.

When she

finished, they both fell silent for a long time. Then Sloane Su smiled bitterly and said, "Gabrielle, the two of us are really good friends with similar miserable fates. We both have miserable experiences and heartless brothers."

Gabrielle suddenly realized something. "Did he come to you again?"

"I never want to see him again. Every time he comes to me, he does nothing but threatens me. Just hearing his name makes me feel angry. I will be the happiest person in the world if I won't be seeing him for the rest of my life," Sloane Su replied with a darkened expression. Obviously, she was very unhappy.

"But, Gabrielle, I still can't understand why you agree to marry Westley? It has nothing to do with you anyway. This is all Bryce's fault because he has stolen Westley's woman. Perhaps he is so bored with his life that he wants to challenge the authorities. Or maybe he wants to die faster. Doesn't he know that Westley is a living demon in this world? If Westley wants someone to die at night, that person will surely never see the next sunrise. Is Nellie really worth it? You have even sacrificed yourself for them." Sloane Su suddenly had the urge to kill Bryce.

The first person she wanted to kill was Benny Xiao. The man she had called brother for more than ten years, but now, she wanted him dead.

She also wanted Bryce to die because of the things he did to Gabrielle. For her, he did not deserve to be Gabrielle's brother.

"Nellie has always been Bryce's dream girl. He must be very happy that they're finally together now." As she spoke, Gabrielle felt a lump in her throat and her chest tightened.

Her best friends, Sloane Su and Emily Ye both knew what happened in the Song family, so she had nothing to hide.

"Bah! Nellie is a goddess in Bryce's eyes, so what? Since he has dared to take her away, he must face the consequences. Why does he choose to hide and let you take all the blame? You are suffering because of him. And that Westley is also not a man at all. How dare he leave you alone in such a desolate place! What if something bad happens to you? Doesn't he even care?" Feeling a little helpless, Sloane Su could only complain again.

Why did she and Gabrielle have to suffer so much? All the men they met were scumbags.

"What does he have to worry about? I am not his woman, and he doesn't like me at all. It has nothing to do with him even if I die." Gabrielle laughed at herself bitterly before she took another sip of milk carefully.

"Well, we'd better not worry about those scumbags anymore. After drinking the milk, have a good sleep. Don't strain yourself thinking about them. Let's just hope that Bryce will come to his senses and bring Nellie back as soon as possible. Otherwise, Westley will not let go of you but continue to torture you. I'm afraid that you will lose your life in just half a month. He is obviously venting all his anger on you." Sloane Su took the empty cup from Gabrielle's hand, turned around, and went to the kitchen.

Gabrielle's hair was not fully dry yet. But her head started to feel heavy, so she lay on the sofa and closed her eyes.

She didn't know how long she had slept. But when she opened her eyes again and looked at the window, the sun was already setting outside. A streak of orange light seeped through the window, and it looked so beautiful. She wanted to appreciate its beauty, but at the same time, her head felt heavier.

Sloane Su heard the noise outside, so she came out of the kitchen, wearing an apron and holding a spatula in her hand. Obviously, she was cooking because the whole apartment was filled with the aroma of stir-fried vegetables.

"You're awake. I'm almost done making dinner. We'll eat in a short while. If Westley doesn't look for you, don't go home tonight. You don't have to bear his maltreatment."

She was a little worried because Gabrielle was sitting on the sofa in a daze. "Gabrielle, what's wrong? Are you not feeling well?"

Gabrielle shook her head at once. As much as possible, she didn't want Sloane Su to worry about her. "I'm fine. I've just woken up, so I need some time to sober up."

Sloane Su stopped asking more questions. She turned around and went back to the kitchen to continue cooking.
