“Knock. Knock. Knock.”
Right then, Florence heard a slight knock on the door. This was the first response she received after yelling for such a long time.
In a surprise, she immediately asked, “Who is it? Please open the door for me. Let me out!”
“Little Miss, I’m Tammy. Please lower your voice. I came here secretly without noticing the young master.”
She heard Tammy’s deliberately lowered voice from the outside.
Florence’s mouth corners twitched. She felt so helpless. Stanford had gone too far. He didn’t only lock her up but also gave commands to the servants and maids.
“Tammy, do you have the key? Hurry up and open the door, please,” Florence lowered her voice as well and asked anxiously.
“Little Miss, I’m sorry but the key was taken away by Young Master. I don’t have any duplicates. I’m afraid I can’t help you.”
The delight in Florence’s eyes immediately faded away.
Tammy didn’t have the key, and Florence couldn’t go out. They couldn’t do anything.
Tammy continued, “Little Miss, I don’t know what has happened, but that handsome gentleman was leaving. If you go upstairs, you could see him set off.”
Was Ernest leaving?
Florence’s mind went blank. Without thinking twice, she rushed upstairs to the second floor.
The window of her second-floor was facing the front yard. When she stood in front of the window, she could see everything there.
Sure enough, she had seen Ernest walking out of the house and stepping outside.
He was truly leaving, wasn’t he?
Florence felt that her heart hopped up into her throat. She yelled anxiously, “Ernest! Ernest!”
Although she could see the front yard, it was way too far away from her bedroom. Her voice disappeared in the wind.
