Chapter 8

Sebastian was also stunned as he looked at the woman in front of him.

Sabrina’s body was not covered, and her skin flushed a little red after the bath. Her short wet hair was messily scattered, and her palm-sized face was covered with water droplets and steam.

Standing shivering before Sabastian in this way made her look helpless.

Sebastian was not wearing much as well.

He had a tall and strong figure with well-defined muscles, bronzed skin, broad shoulders, and narrow hips. His solid and steel-like right arm had two frightening scars, but it fully highlighted his masculine dominance and overbearing force.

When Sabrina saw his scars, her whole heart contracted as she was frightened.

However, she was also embarrassed as he completely saw her whole body.

She covered her front in panic, but no matter how she tried to cover it, some parts could still be seen. She stretched her trembling arm to reach for the bathrobe as she wanted to put it on, but her hand was shaking like crazy.

“I… I thought you were not coming back. Why…Why did you come back?” Her teeth were chattering, and her whole face flushed like the branding iron.

She got the bathrobe, but she could not put it on properly.

After she wore the robe with great difficulty, she realized the robe was so long that the edges dragged to the ground.

Sabrina then realized that it was a men’s bathrobe. It was wide, big, and long.

She simply wrapped herself with the bathrobe and walked out, but the more nervous she was, more trouble followed her. She stepped on the bottom of the bathrobe, and her whole body fell over.

“Ah…!” Sabrina let out another scream.

Sebastian raised an arm and pulled her in so that she did not fall.

The man smelled a familiar scent as if he had smelled it before from somewhere. He gently closed his eyes and lowered his head onto the back of her neck.

Sabrina cried out in fear. “Let go of me…”

Sebastian was suddenly awoken.

“D*mn,” he cursed. He picked up a bath towel and wrapped Sabrina up. He carried her to the second bedroom and threw her onto the big bed before turning around to leave.

Bang! The room door was shut.

He walked into the bathroom, turned on the cold shower, and sprayed himself furiously.

Sabrina was curled up on the bed in the second bedroom, hugging her legs and blaming herself deeply. Why did she not resent his hug at all?

‘Sabrina Scott, do you really want to marry into a wealthy family?’

‘You are too shameless!’

‘Sebastian was so disgusted by you. How could he possibly be interested in you, a woman who just came out of prison and is now pregnant with a child?’

‘Do not let Sebastian despise you from the bottom of his heart.’

She spent a restless night in the second bedroom. She woke up early the following day and saw no one in the living room. Hence, she picked up a notepad and left a note.

Her penmanship was as strong, neat, and sharp as the last time. ‘Please excuse me, Mr. Ford, I thought you wouldn’t come back here to rest, and I offended you by using your bathroom yesterday. As it was in the past, I would pretend that nothing has happened, and I hope you would also do the same.’

After leaving the note, Sabrina went to the hospital to visit Grace.

She did not meet the housekeeper that morning, so she understood that it was Grace who had painstakingly made the arrangement. She wanted Sebastian and Sabrina to spend the night together.

When Sabrina arrived at the ward, Grace’s eyes began to survey her body. “Sabbie, why are you here so early? You should not be out of bed today. You should rest more.”

Sabrina was embarrassed and said, “Mom…don’t talk about it.”

“Tell me. Were you happy last night?” Grace asked with a smile.

“Yes.” Sabrina vaguely nodded, then she flung herself into Grace’s arms.

Grace hugged her and said, “Do you know how well you and Sebastian are suited for each other? I was not mistaken about you two. I would definitely give you a splendid wedding…”

“Thank you, Mom.” Although this was just an act, Sabrina still felt appreciative of Grace.

For Grace, this was not an act.

She truly wanted to give Sabrina a privileged life.

Sabrina spent the whole morning sitting in Grace’s ward to keep her company. She joked and laughed with Grace. As Grace was still a sick person, she needed to close her eyes to rest for a while after a moment of chatting and laughing.

Sabrina left when Grace fell asleep.

She had to hurry up and find a job.

As she walked on the road, she inadvertently saw an advertisement posted on a corner of a billboard at the bus stop. [Recruiting Architectural Assistant]

Sabrina studied architectural engineering in college, but her studies were interrupted by her arrest during her sophomore year. Also, Sabrina had a good relationship with Grace in prison, partly because Grace was also an Architecture Designer with high professional standards.

The two often studied architecture together when they had nothing else to do in prison.

It was such a pity that Sabrina had no university degree, was just released from prison, and was pregnant. Companies that offered positions like this would not want her.

However, she still held the mindset to just try her luck.

Sabrina drew a few structural diagrams that were more practical with a pen and paper. She went to the printing company and paid to have them photographed. After receiving it in her inbox, she hit the send button.

As she finished the matters at hand, she received a call from an unknown number. “Hello?”

“Sabrina.” Selene’s incredibly smug voice could be heard on the other end of the call.

“How did you know my phone number?” Sabrina asked suspiciously.

“Hah!” Selene laughed, “I was able to find out where you lived. Wouldn’t it be too easy for me to know your number?”

“What’s the matter?!” Sabrina asked.

“It was my fault yesterday. I was in a bad mood. You could come around four or five o’clock in the afternoon to collect your mother’s pictures.” Selene’s tone was unusually friendly.

Sabrina was speechless.

She did not contemplate Selene’s drastic change between yesterday and today. She only wanted to get her mother’s pictures out of there quickly.

At around four or five o’clock in the afternoon, Sabrina went to the Lynn Residence again.

She entered the door and gazed blankly at the lady of the house, Jade. “Where are my mother’s pictures? Please hand it to me, and I would leave immediately.”

“Why are you in a hurry, Sabrina?” Jade smiled in an unusually nice manner. “Since you are here, come have a seat.”

“Sorry, not interested!” Sabrina said calmly.

“Wow!” Jade said in an enigmatic tone, “Somebody’s highly conceited. Not even willing to visit the house where you were raised for eight years? It looked like you don’t need the Lynn family’s financial support now? Are you going to marry above your station soon?”

“That’s right! I have found a husband that is a hundred times wealthier than the Lynn family. Perhaps I will be charitable to your family in return in the future.” Sabrina lifted her chin and arrogantly looked at Jade.

Jade was speechless, but her teeth almost broke as she gnashed them in rage.

“Sabrina, you dared to make such a boastful claim? Then bring your rich husband here, and we could all get to know each other.” Selene’s voice came from the door.

Sabrina turned around and saw a man and a woman walked in. The woman was Selene.

The man, to her surprise, was Sebastian.
