“Alright.” Sia nodded.
“Go to bed early. I’ll head back to my room now.”
“Do you have anything else to do?”
“Umm, can you… wait for me here for a few minutes?” Sia did not dare to meet his gaze, she stared at her toes instead.
When Sebastian agreed, Sia closed the door and ran into the bathroom to change into one of the items Bella had bought for her.
A few minutes later, Sia still hasn’t come out. Sebastian was about to open the door and check for her when door was opened slightly.
“Are you hiding something from me?”
“Of course not.” She opened the door wider.
“What do you think of my outfit?”
Sia was dressed in a pink and black bunny cosplay costume with pink fluffy bunny ears. She have no idea what Bella was thinking when she picked this out. She said Sebastian was a mature adult and wouldn’t be turned on by childish nightwear, yet she bought something like this! Sia decided to play. along since the costume is very revealing, perhaps it might work.
But for over a minute now, Sebastian was silent for a while. The only change in his appearance was
eyes which seemed to get darker by the second. His Adam’s apple rolled slightly.
“Come here.” He finally said, voice low and husky.
Sia inched closer obediently, placing herself in front of Sebastian.
Now that she’s closer, Sia realized his eyes glowed like molten magma. Maybe it was just the light, her body heat up and she felt a little bit embarrassed at how his eyes raked over her body. She reached out to cover her body, but was stopped by Sebastian’s big hand.
“You suddenly decided to feel scared now?”
An unfamiliar aura surrounded Sebastian, dark and dangerous. Sia felt light headed, she had somehow managed to anger him rather than seduce him.
Sebastian moved suddenly, pulling her into his arms. Her body fell flush against his hard one, and raising one hand, Sebastian sp**ked her hard across her butt.
“Oww, that hurts Seb!” Sia cried at the unexpected turn ot event.
“Next time you dare to dress like this, I guarantee you you’d be in a whole world of pain than this.” Sebastian gritted. He turned around and stalked back to his room in angry long strides.
“Wait.” Sia called but he was long gone.
It was just as she thought. Sebastian is angry, she shouldn’t have listened to Bella’s advice. He must.
have thought that her outfit is immature.
Sia was a already tired from all shopping during the day, she returned to her room and fall asleep as soon as her head touched the pillow.
But that wasn’t the case on Sebastian’s part. Even after standing under the cold shower for an hour, he still tossed around in bed without a wink of sleep throughout the night.
The next morning, the two of them ate breakfast together. Sia was shy and nervous the whole time due to the dark aura Sebastian was emitting. Sia could only imagine how angry he was last night.
“You don’t have classes today, stay at home.” Sebastian broke the silence. “I’ll pick you up in the evening for the dinner at the Sterlings mansion.”
Sebastian got up when he was done, but Sia called his attention before he could leave.
“Wait a minute, Sebastian.”
“Is there anything else you have to say?”
“Yes… I have a surprise for you tonight.”
A s*y Sia in her bunny outfit flashed through his brain. The image that tortured him throughout the night. His expression hardened. “You’ve become naughty, kitten.”
Lord knows he was reaching his limit these days. He have no idea how long he can withhold himself, still, he found himself looking forward to the little surprise later tonight.
“I’ll be taking my leave now. Save the surprise for the evening.”
Sebastian left after that, the house was empty and with nothing to do, Sia went to inquire about the Sterling family from Mr. Greg.
“How long have you been working for the Sterlings, Mr. Greg?”
“Over twenty years, Ms Blackwood. Is there anything you want to know?”
“Anything really. We’ve been invited to a dinner tonight, I don’t know anything about Sebastian’s family.”
“It’s a highly private family, the Sterlings. Even I don’t know much after all these years. Mr. Sterling, Sebastian’s father has married a total of four wives in his life. Having a total of ten children.”
“That’s a lot. How many siblings does Sebastian have from his mother?”
“Sebastian’s mother passed away at an early age. He is her only child.”
“Ah… I see. Thank you for the information Mr. Greg.”
No wonder he became an outcast in the family. He grew up basically alone.
Sia’s phone rang at that moment. Checking the ID, Nathan’s name flashed across her screen. She ended it without a second thought, but he was insistent and kept calling until she picked up.
“Why are you treating me like this Sia?”
“Why do you keep calling? Do you want to be blocked?”
“We need to meet.”
“No we don’t.” Sia was about to hang up when Nathan exclaimed.
“Don’t you want to get back of your grandfather’s crystal pendant?”
