“Shannon, you’re not Coco. You’re my dear Shannon.”Sean stopped by her side to kiss away the tears at the corner of her eye. “Shannon, please do a blood test with John, will you? The results can never lie. You’ll know that what I said is true. I didn’t lie to you.”Her heart throbbed when he kissed her, so, in a blind panic, she pushed him away.She put her hand on her chest and felt her heart pounding. “Sean, what’s your problem? Why should I carry out a blood test with your son?” Crossly, she said to him.His heart ached to know that she did not believe anything he said. Just like him, he was deeply skeptical at first. Again and again, she pleaded with him to conduct the paternity test with John, but he kept turning her down with all sorts of unbelievable reasons that were unpleasant to hear.He told her the truth, but it was simply regarded with suspicion. It was the worst feeling ever, and he finally understood it.Eagerly, he clasped her hands in an attempt to explain himse
There was a grey car that stopped around the corner not far from the house. Quinn was in the car, waiting patiently for her prey to fall into the trap. Gently, she stroked her baby bump, but even in a gesture of motherly love, the menacing look on her face was hard to miss.She was told about Shannon’s return and had been monitoring her whereabouts ever since.Shannon seemed to have lost her memory, but Sean had no intention of moving on.Sean, do you really love Shannon that much?Oh, well, your love will be the death of her.Also, Julio, too.Quinn and Julio were childhood friends. He behaved like a gentleman throughout the time that they were together, but with a calm disposition - courteous, but faintly aloof. In fact, she found him strangely distant every time they talked. Whenever he was with Shannon, however, he behaved quite differently. There was always a gentle smile on his face when they were together.Two outstanding men were both attracted to Shannon at the same tim
“Seth, hold on a minute, the camera’s not fixed. Let’s fix the angle first.”Eli had prepared a few camcorders and a camera just for tonight.Shannon looked at the gears in disbelief, which made her wonder what they actually wanted. What was the point of setting up the recorder as well?Eli noticed her bewilderment, so he answered her question with a wicked smile, “Bitch, someone wants you dead, but before that, all your standing and reputation must be ruined. Your cooperation tonight is very much needed so that we can get good pictures to bargain for good money!”Shannon trembled in fear at what she had heard.Not long ago, she had just returned to Linn City. She could not remember if she had ever offended anyone, so much so that person wanted her dead.Could the person be Sean?The possibility was dismissed almost immediately. Despite the bitter experience they had, she still believed that he would not do such dirty things to a woman. Who else could it be, if not him?Forcefu
No! She refused to fall into the hands of these two disgusting men. With persistence, she must fight until the end.She bit her lips so hard that her teeth sank into her flesh, causing the wound to bleed steadily. Pain brought her clarity, so she could finally think straight. She shot a glance at the bedside table and saw a glass. Promptly she grabbed the glass and aimed for Eli Jenk’s head.“Bitch, I’m going to make you suffer so much tonight!”On the spur of the moment, Eli cut her off and took away the glass from her hand. He then slapped her face, rather forcefully and loudly, which caused her pretty face to swell up badly.Clearly, he did not mean to show her any mercy. The slap was so hard that she began to suffer dizzy spells.To make matters worse, he did not give her any time to recover before tearing her clothes off.“Don’t touch me! Don’t touch me! Get your hands off me! Don’t you touch me!” She fought on. “Help!”The disparity of physical strength between Shannon and
Eli thought that Sean would at least show them some leniency if he blamed Shannon, but to his dismay, Sean looked even more intimidating after listening to his explanation.“Are you saying that my wife is interested in you?”Does Sean have a wife?Both Eli and Seth looked pretty shaken.They looked dumbfounded and were keenly aware of it. The two men were completely insignificant as compared to Sean, the rich man with looks and wealth.No woman in their right mind would choose them over Sean.They stared at each other in consternation, not knowing what to say.“How dare you touch my wife!? Damn it! Sam, take them down. Remember, don’t let them die so easily!”“Mr. Ford, please, show us mercy!” It was no surprise. Many were known to have suffered hideous torments under Sean’s confinement. They would suffer the same wherever Sam was taking them.In desperation, they made kowtows to him. “Mr. Ford, it’s our fault. Please, I beg you, please forgive us! It’s Ms. Quinn! She’s the on
Sean took Shannon all the way back to his mansion.She had been fed with the most powerful pill of its kind. When they finally got home, her body temperature was abnormally high.Eagerly, she tried to break away. Instinct told her not to get entangled with her brother-in-law.Repeatedly, she told herself that Julio was the man she loved and that they would be getting married very soon. However, there was only one name that kept coming to her mind.Sean. Sean...Why? Why did his name keep coming back to haunt her?Is it because of the immense hatred?Or could it be…She did not want to go there.What she desperately needed was a cold shower to calm herself down. Falteringly, she tried to walk to the bathroom, but he clasped her in his arms to stop her from leaving.His sweet lips were attached to hers, and soon, their tongues were intertwined. Lost in the kiss, she could feel her mind drift. With one last effort, she regained her strength and gave him a hard slap in the face.
She was told about Eli and Seth’s failure last night.Her men came back with news, saying that Shannon was taken away by Sean, who showed up out of the blue.From her view in the car, she could see love bites on Shannon’s neck, which confirmed her speculation. The thought of them having sex last night drove her crazy. Without a doubt, anger and bitterness had preyed on her. She clenched her fists so hard that she cut her skin with her own nails, causing blood to drip.Shannon! Shannon!You should be long dead! I should’ve killed you right away last night!But it is not too late. Shannon, go to hell!Quinn stepped on the accelerator pedal and drove the car out at full speed. It was Shannon that she was aiming for.When Shannon finally noticed the danger, it was already too late. The van seemed to be coming at lightning speed; she knew that she was unable to escape.“Shannon!”It seemed hopeless for her to think that she could survive the crash. She anticipated the accident, but
To Quinn’s surprise, Sean rushed out to save Shannon’s life at the critical moment without a second thought.Unknowingly, Quinn’s eyes were flooded with tears, for she could not understand how Sean loved Shannon so much!She reversed the car and slowly accelerated as she attempted to hit Shannon again. She would not be satisfied as long as Shannon was alive.However, Sam managed to arrive just in time with a group of people before Quinn succeeded. She was worried that Sam would catch her, so she quickly changed her direction and drove toward the southern outskirts.Sam did not go after Quinn by himself as he was worried about Sean’s injuries. Instead, he summoned his subordinates to tail Quinn’s car.Anxiously, Quinn accelerated and drove away recklessly. She was in an extreme panic as she did not want to be caught by Sean’s men. She heaved a sigh of relief when she noticed that she managed to escape from their clasp. However, when she was driving toward a junction, all of a sudden,
