I've Been There Before

Chapter 29 Crazy Lady

Leon turned around and Grace was pushed into a room. She opened her eyes and got stunned, “Mr. Lo, why did you bring me here?”

 

This was a similar private room with the one before.

 

Who is she? She is just a prisoner and she could never afford to get into another trouble.

 

Graces wanted to avoid everything that made her feel unsettled. She has got nothing left to pay off any debts now.

 

She quickly said, “Mr. Lo, if you don't need anything else, I shall leave now.”

 

However, her legs didn't allow her to walk fast. Her speed couldn't catch up with her desire to leave the scene and this dangerous person. Therefore, the way she walked looked funny to Leon.

 

Grace headed towards the exit with a limping leg. Leon's hand was in his pocket. The pair of brown eyes hidden under the golden frame glasses smiled while he watched her walking to the door. He did nothing to stop her as if she was a free man and it didn't matter where she'd go.

Grace reached out her hand when she finally arrived at the door. She breathed a sigh of relief when she held the doorknob, and pulled open the door in the next second. Lights came out from the gap between the door and the frame. The private room was vacant so it was very dark. When lights hit her eyes, she closed her eyes subconsciously... “Ouch!”

The moment she closed her eyes and started to feel dizzy, she felt her wrist got grabbed and someone pulled her. It wasn’t a vigorous pull but she was weak and her leg was limping. So, she fell to the floor.

Grace immediately raised her head. What she saw was a finely-sculptured face. Under the dim lights, the face wasn't as clear.

Suddenly, a hand reached out to her face.

“What...are you doing?”

She dodged.

“Stop moving,” Leon sounded gentle. He gave her a gentle command.

Grace’s face turned pale. Three years in the prison had transformed her from an arrogant lady into a pathetic and sensitive person. Leon's voice was so gentle but she could catch the coldness hidden inside of his tone... And it is very much like how Caden sounded!

Caden...Caden...Caden... They must be the same kind of person! He will hurt me! Grace panicked and tried to run away.
