Eugene seemed to have had enough of this fiasco. His eyes were filled with annoyance. He came over to them but stopped in front of Melanie. He looked down at her from above. “What are you crying for?”
Melanie’s eyes were red, and she was biting her lip to stop herself from crying.
She did not look at Eugene, nor did she say anything.
The look in Eugene’s eyes turned even colder. He looked away from Melanie’s face and turned his gaze to George instead.
George was not afraid because Tyrone had been calling him every day to ask for his money.
He was a man in a desperate situation now. He looked at Eugene with a wide smile. “Mr. Scott, You’re a big boss. Ten million is nothing to you, am I right?
“If you could pay me all those years ago, you can pay me now too.
“Just give me ten million and my daughter is yours. Sleep with her however much you want for free after that. How does that sound? It’s a pretty good deal, right?”
The look in Eugene’s eyes turned even colder. He ignored George and said to the security guards, “Do you need me to teach you how to call the police?”
This startled the security guards. They glanced at Melanie and later called the police.
George did not seem to know how much trouble he was in. He got even crazier. “Go ahead and call the police. Those loan sharks already have Melanie’s information. I can go to jail, but anything those people do to her has nothing to do with me.”
A chill ran down Melanie’s spine as she was reminded of what happened that night when she heard people banging on her house. Her voice trembled as she asked, “Are you making me pay your debts?”
“Who else is going to pay when I have no money?” There was a look of hate in George’s eyes. He glared at Melanie.
“You refused to give me money when I asked for it. All they wanted was 500 grand, but now they’re asking for 1.5 million. Hahahaha! Pay up, you dumb wretch! You deserve it!”
Melanie could hardly stand even with Yana’s help. She fell back a few steps and almost fell.
Loan sharks could not be so easily dealt with.
No one would believe her even if she told them that she was not related to George.
If they did, they would not have caused such a disturbance that night.
Fear suddenly enveloped Melanie. The knocking at midnight, her window being crashed, the insults and curses thrown at her by those people, and the words written in red paint at her front door…
She had night blindness, and her fear was heightened a few more times than normal people in the
It was painful, and the feeling suffocated her.
Melanie could no longer hear what George was shouting about. She could not even react.
Why was her life so miserable? m
A cold, deep voice spoke up, pulling her out of her despondent thoughts. “You’re coming to me for money when she refuses to give you any?”
George spat out the words, ‘Aren’t you supposed to pay when she can’t?”
Melanie shut her eyes when she heard how indignant he sounded.
The look in Eugene’s eyes was cold, and he looked domineering. He stared at George like he was garbage. “Who gave you that confidence?”
A sharp look flashed in George’s eyes. “Don’t you like her? I’m giving her to you. Don’t you want her?”
He made it sound so casual as if Melanie was an object.
“It’s fine if you don’t want her. It’s the same if I give her to those people.” George did not seem to fear anything. “I wanted to sell that useless daughter of mine too, but this bitch stopped it. Looks like they can accompany each other when they become mistresses of
George got even more vulgar as he spoke. The look on Melanie became increasingly terrible. She was about to push Yana aside when she heard Eugene’s nonchalant voice.
