Sean’s appearance made Melissa heave a sigh of relief.
Melissa took a step back to get out of the way.
However, her eyes held complicated emotions when she was standing behind him.
Melissa adored and admired Sean.
Yvette froze in place and looked wretched as usual. Her face was as pale as paper without a hint of color.
“Sean, what are you trying to do? If you want revenge because I dumped you back then, just kill me. Why do you want to torture me like this?”
“Torture? How is this torture? You haven’t seen real hell yet.” Sean’s tone was cold and sarcastic.
“Don’t you want to know if Lance is still alive? I’ll tell you. He was lucky and was rescued in time. But now, he has two broken ribs and he’s still unconscious.”
When Yvette heard Sean’s words, her relaxed body slowly stiffened again.
The light in her eyes flickered.
Yvette did not know whether to be sad or happy about it.
She really wanted to see Lance! Seeing the conflicting expression on her face, Sean felt inexplicably irked.
“It’s a good thing that he didn’t die. Yvette, if you don’t listen to me, I’ll make sure that he never wakes up again.”
Yvette abruptly raised her head and stared at him with angry eyes.
“What gives you the right to be so lawless?!” Sean laughed lightly.
“Well, I call the shots here, so you have to learn to adapt. Otherwise, I have plenty of ways to train disobedient women.”
Sean pinched her chin to see her angry face. It was as if he could crush her to death with just a little bit of force.
After he finished speaking, he turned around, passed by the door, and looked at Melissa expressionlessly.
“Since she’s not behaving, you don’t need to feed her tonight. Just lock the door and get some rest.” Melissa nodded with a smile.
After Sean left, Melissa’s eyes were still glued to him.
Yvette suppressed her emotions.
She knew that she should not have a mental breakdown at this moment.
As long as Lance was still alive, she had to live.
There was hope as long as she was alive. She could see Lance if she left this place.
Yvette covered her face and took a deep breath. She looked sideways at Melissa, who was closing the door.
“Are you with him?” Her voice was hoarse but calm enough.
Melissa thought this sentence had another meaning and nodded shyly.
Yvette pursed her lips and looked at her with complex eyes.
“You were still a student when you were working at the bar. Why do you want to hang around with people like him? Did you quit school?”
Since Melissa could not help her, Yvette thought she should learn more about the enemy’s situation. Sean’s patience would be exhausted if Yvette kept cursing at him all day.
What would she do if he decided not to tie her up and wanted to kill her instead? Melissa paused in her movements. Her expression was indescribably subtle.
“I can’t afford tuition. My mother took my student loan and gave it to my brother, so I had nowhere to go. Fortunately, Mr.Moore saved me.” Yvette snorted.
“Why would he be so kind? He treats you as a nanny anyway.”
Melissa shook her head, opened her mouth, and wanted to explain that she was not a nanny.
However, after some thought, Melissa had only slept with Sean that once, and he never looked for her again.
Although Sean gave her generous remuneration and a stable job, she was invisible to him.
However, Melissa thought it was enough to see him from a distance.
When Melissa was called over to take care of Ms.
Quimbey, she knew that Mr.Moore treated Ms. Quimbey differently.
“Ms.Quimbey, Mr.Moore is a very good person. He won’t be angry if you talk to him properly.” Melissa said patiently.
Yvette laughed and snorted.
“He’s a good person? You’re all deceived by him! He’s not even human!”
Sean was not there anyway, so Yvette would curse him however she liked.
Melissa pressed her lips together, looked at Yvette, and said, “Anyway, he’s a good person.Ms.Quimbey, you can’t eat tonight, but what would you like to eat tomorrow morning?”
Yvette was furious. How could she have the appetite? She turned her face away.
“I don’t want to eat.”
Melissa lowered her eyes, turned her head, and left silently.
Two tall men — one fat and one thin — came in.
A smile appeared on Melissa’s face.
The thin man happily ran over.
“Ms.Melissa, I knew you’d come back!”
When Melissa heard this address, she lowered her head shyly and remained silent.
The fat man punched the thin man’s shoulder and coughed.
“Is the boss back?” Melissa nodded.
“He went back to his room. What do you guys want to eat? I’ll cook for you?”
The thin man rubbed his hands and winked at her.
“Since the boss is back in his room, what are you still doing here? Hurry up and serve him!”
Seeing how straightforward he was, Melissa could not help but blush. She lowered her head and felt embarrassed.
“Don’t say that. Mr.Moore didn’t ask me to go over and told me to take care of Ms.Quimbey.”
The fat man glared at him.
“That’s right. Don’t make a mess. If the boss gets angry, you’re done for!”
The thin man curled his lips in dissatisfaction.
“I’m not wrong. The boss only wants Ms.Quimbey because he couldn’t get her. Ms.Quimbey is married and likes to ignore the boss, but he spent so much effort to bring her back. If it were up to me, I’d create an accident and kill their whole family to get revenge.
The boss insisted on bringing her back, so he must’ve wanted to subdue her. Look at Melissa! She’s also his woman. She’s well-mannered and obedient. Melissa, if you work hard, you’ll become our lady boss in the future. We don’t want a divorced woman to become our lady boss!”
Melissa’s face flushed red as the thin man spoke in a suggestive tone.
At this moment, heavy footsteps came from upstairs.
Everyone’s expressions changed.
“Lex, since when do you have a say in my affairs?”
No one knew when Sean appeared. How much of their conversation did he hear? As soon as Sean spoke, everyone instantly became solemn.
The shyness on Melissa’s face also disappeared. She was afraid to look up at Sean.
The thin man, Lex, suddenly raised his head and smiled stiffly.
“Boss, I was just simply saying. I don’t mean to disrespect Ms.Quimbey.”
The fat guy, Tate, nodded incessantly.
“Yes, Boss. Please don’t punish Lex because of a woman. He just likes to spout nonsense, but he has a sense of propriety.”
Sean walked down with an intimidating air around him while he fiddled with his cufflink. His action was slow and gentle, but his expression was gloomy and stern.
“It’s best to have a sense of propriety. But since you like Melissa so much, she’s yours in the future.”
As soon as Sean said those words, everyone present was stunned.
Melissa’s face turned even paler as she looked up at him in disbelief.
Sean was never stingy with offering his subordinates women around him.
In the past when they went out to have fun, other people would offer Sean some women, but Sean would just give them to his subordinates without hesitation.
Until now, the only woman who actually managed to climb onto Sean’s bed was Melissa.
