“Shocking news! Tonight is the engagement party of The Blackwood’s youngest daughter, Ms. Anastasia Blackwood, and the famous billionaire, Mr. Nathaniel Sinclair, but guess what? Ms. Anastasia cheated! And the best part? We don’t even know who this mysterious lover is!”
“Can you believe it? This is the juiciest scandal this city has witnessed in the past decade!”
Bang! Bang!! Bang!!!
Heavy knocks banged against the door, mixed with reporters’ voices woke Sia up, she slowly opened her eyes.
Her head felt fuzzy, and she was sore all over as if she had been run over by a truck.
What’s wrong with me? She thought, cracking her eyes open to assess her body. The moment she saw her body made she became sober instantly.
Deep and shallow marks littered her arms. And under a thin quilt was her naked body!
Then the sounds of steady breathing into her ears; slowly, Sia turned her stiff neck around. Seeing the face of the people around her clearly, her pupils constricted instantly as anxiety and fear gripped her heart.
“Ahhhh!” She let out an ear-piercing scream like the scaredy cat she was.
Why is Sebastian Sterling sleeping in her bed??!
Sebastian is the most unfavored and despised illegitimate child of the Sterling Family. It is rumored that when he was ten years old, he was caught in a fire, half of his face was burnt horribly, and he looked like a devil crawling up from hell.
Sia racked her brain as she tried to remember what happened last night that led to this. She clearly remembered that last night was her bachelor party, her sister Rosalind Blackwood came to toast her, after drinking the wine her sister handed over, she became delirious, was sent to the hotel in a daze. When she woke up, she was covered with hickey marks on Sebastian’s bed!
Nathan, her boyfriend was also at the party last night. Why did this still happen?
Sia immediately picked up the phone on the bedside table, dialed Nathan’s number. She really want to ask him, did this how he protects his girlfriend?
In no more than a few seconds, the call was answered.
“I’m trying to sleep, honey. Can’t you answer the phone later?” Rosalind’s voice came from the phone.
It was as if a bucket of ice-cold water was dumped over Sia’s head, her face turning pale.
While she was with Sebastian last night, Nathan slept with Rose.
“Sia?” Nathan’s voice called her name.
“Nathan? What the heck is happening!? Why is Rosalind sleeping in your bed early in the morning? Are we still hold an engagement reception today?”
Nathan was speechless when he heard her words.
“Of course not. The engagement still holds. But my fiancée is not you anymore, but is Rosalind.”
“I’m sorry, Sia. I realized that Rose was the person I liked all along.”
Nathan’s voice was cold and indifferent. His tone might be apologetic, but there wasn’t any trace of guilt in it.
Sia understood the whole situation now. It’s obvious that Nathan also played a part that Rosalind drvgging her and sending her to Sebastian’s bed..
“Unbelievable, huh? I never thought that you are a such kind of disgusting man!”
Sia hung up the phone without waiting for his reply. Her fingernails were stuck in her flesh. No amount of pain in her palm could compare to the pain in her heart at this moment. Then Sia turned her gaze to Sebastian’s face.
At the same time, Sebastian, has already been awakened by Sia’s startled scream, heard all the conversation between her and her boyfriend. He stared at the moon-shaped birthmark on Sia’s collarbone, making it unclear what he was thinking.
“We slept tougether last night, didn’t we?” She asked.
“You must be responsibility for me! Today will be our engagement!” Sia gritted her teeth and glared
to the man.
The man seems didn’t predict her reaction would be like that.
He smirked in amusement, surprised by her bold outburst and then nodded without any hesitation,
“No problem, my dear fiancée.”
His thin lips parted lightly as he spoke, half of his perfect face seems have been carved by gods.
The knocking on the door continued to come in, and the reporters outside the door all wanted to get first-hand information about the wealthy family’s scandal.
“I’ll have my guards chase the reporters away,” Sebastian said coldly as he sat up from the bed.
The reporters had come prepared. If his memories served him right, Sia should have just turned 18. She is too young to handle the questions that would be fired at her by the reporters the moment she stepped out.
But instead, the girl shook her head in defiance, rejecting his offer.
Rosalind and Nathan – the disgusting man and his shamelless lover, are at fault, not them. Why should they be forced into hiding like rats when they were the victims? Sia thought.
She propped up her aching body off the bed and threw on her clothes with her back to Sebastian. When she was decent again, she walked to the door and unlocked it with her chin jutted up in mock confidence.
The reporters were astonished by how easily Sia appeared, and then the spotlight kept shining on Sia’s face. Her neck and collarbone were covered with h*ck*y marks, which showed that last night’s process was very fierce.
“Ms. Blackwood, is it true that you’ve betraied your boyfriend?”
“Ms. Blackwood, what happened between you and Mr. Sinclair? Aren’t you afraid of Sinclair’s revenge?”
Sia was bombarded with question after question in an instant. Just at that time, Sebastian strode forward in long powerful strides and stood beside Sia with a protective stance.
She shot him a grateful glance; although half of his face was disfigured and he didn’t hold a powerful status, he would stand up byu your side when you need someone the most.
After the reporters saw Sebastian, they began to more excited because they know the betrayal was real.
“I know you have many questions regarding last night. I came out prepared to address that and clear your doubts.” Her small hand searched Sebastian’s big one and intertwined their fingers.
“I didn’t betray anyone. I broke up with Nathan last night. We have nothing together anymore, and I’ve moved on. Rest assured, our engagement party will be held as promised. Sebastian Sterling is my present boyfriend. And of course, he will be my fiancé from tomorrow.”
