06~ My pet

Damian squinted his eyes at Evelyn’s uncle in silent warning. He didn’t like seeing the little kitten upset. It was evident that she was just learning of her family’s true nature at the moment. 

The tears in her eyes irked him. 

Evelyn clenched her hand into a tight fist. She couldn’t believe what was happening. Was her uncle about to say they used her money and didn’t inform her for no reason?

‘I thought they were sincere, yet they only cared about my parent’s money.’ 

“There’s no money so how will we pay for the debt?” 

She asked as she looked at her relatives. Her heart was aching from their betrayal but she couldn’t forget the fact that they were still in the mafia’s territory and they still had to pay back his money. 

Seeing that they didn’t answer, Evelyn sighed in disappointment. They caused the problem but yet they offered no solution.

“I put up the house as collateral. You can get the title deeds while we look for money to pay back the debt.”

She said, now turning to face Damian timidly with her face lowered. 

However, she did not notice how her relative's faces paled when she made that statement but Damian did. He smiled knowingly. 

It seemed there was something wrong with the house. 

Damian tapped his fingers on the table. “I will, but is the house worth 3 million dollars? Remember I have to get something that will give me back my money.”

Evelyn was quick to answer. Now looking up at him. He promised to let it go with the collateral repayment, why was he making excuses now? Was he trying to go back on his words?

“Yes… it’s a decent house. It can pay the debt.”

Damian nodded. “Very well then–”

“We sold the house! We are paying rent for it now.” 

Evelyn’s uncle dropped another bomb. Shocking her to the core. She turned to face her family, anger rippling through her chest. 

‘Not only had they spent my inheritance, but they also sold the house too? How could they do this?’

“You have to find the money for your cousin. We helped you leave the orphanage.” 

“That’s right. Take it as you paying back for how we raised you.”

“Yes. Learn to be grateful, Evelyn.”

They used the morality card on her. She couldn’t fathom how she had lived with these people without knowing their true faces. 

Her uncle who had been trembling under Damian’s gaze gave her a nasty look. Secretly urging her to take the debt repayment upon herself. 

Evelyn felt speechless at their shamelessness. 

Meanwhile, Damian observed their interaction with interest. He could see that Evelyn’s family was trying to dump the responsibility of the loan on her. 

His eyes met Evelyn’s sad ones. Even though she was aggrieved, her beauty was beyond compare. Her strawberry blonde hair suited her fair skin perfectly. He thought she was exceptionally beautiful. 

“We had a deal. Now that there’s no house, how are you going to pay for the debt?” He asked calmly.

Evelyn gulped, shifting uncomfortably where she stood. Her heart beat erratically in her chest. She had lost the bet and there was no way of paying the money back. 

‘What do I do?’ 

She timidly glanced at Damian and said, “I - I will… I’ll find a job. I just graduated from school. I can work part-time while I go to college.” 

Damian scoffed in response. “Work? What work can earn you 3 million dollars in a short time? Won’t I grow old waiting to get my money back?”

Evelyn had no words to counter what he said. It was true that it would take her many years of working to finish paying off that amount. She would have to spend the rest of her life working her ass off. But did she have a choice?

‘I’ll probably have to put on hold my plans of becoming a lawyer.’

She bit her lip, a look of dismay plastering her face. 

Seeing her saddened look, Damian felt a weird sensation in his chest. His expression softened. She was too kind. Why would she take the responsibility to pay a debt that she knew nothing of?

“I… I’ll get multiple jobs and pay you back. I promise.”

Damian nodded. Looking at her, suddenly becoming serious. “Do you think the mafia is a joke?”

Evelyn’s heart skipped a beat at his sudden change in attitude. His deep dark gaze was making her nervous.

‘Are they going to beat us up now that we can’t pay the debt?’

“Jack… break Mark’s leg and continue to collect the debt.”

Evelyn trembled in fear when she heard Damian’s order. She couldn’t understand him. At first, he saved her and looked like he was kind to her and now he’s ordering ruthlessly for her cousin’s leg to be broken. 

“No please… don’t hurt my son!” 

Evelyn’s aunt began to scream hysterically after hearing the order. She crawled towards Damian’s desk, ignoring her husband’s attempts to stop her. There’s no way she would let them do that to her son. 

Damian squinted his eyes, not liking the noise. He swept his gaze over Evelyn. She looked frightened at the mention of breaking her cousin's legs.

He wondered if she was willing to do anything to save her family which doesn't seem to care about her. 

“I have an offer.” He said quietly but everyone heard. “Evelyn should be my slave pet. She can delay the repayment of the debt for one day if she acts as a pet for the day.”

“E-Excuse me?!”

Evelyn yelled at Damian. ‘What did he say? His pet?’

“Why would I be your pet?” She questioned angrily. Didn’t she mention that she would do her best to work and earn money?

Damian massaged his chin while looking at Evelyn with a small smirk on his lips. 

“What do you think?” He asked her in amusement. “Don’t you know what a pet is used for in this context? You’re an adult, aren’t you?”

Anger surged within Evelyn as her cheeks puffed up and her face flushed red.

“I told you. I’M NOT A WHORE.” She said through gritted teeth. 

Damian chuckled. Her angry face tickled his heart. She looked so adorable. He couldn’t help but want to tease her more. 

“Of course… I didn’t say you were. I just said I’ll keep you as my pet. I’ll cancel the debt.”

“What do you say?” Damian directed the question to Evelyn’s uncle, “I can give you as much time as you need to come up with the money as long as Evelyn becomes my sex slave.”

He was about to answer when Evelyn cut him off, glaring daggers at Damian. “You’re a horrible person! How can you even suggest such a thing? I’ll never be your pet!”

She yelled, her chest heaving in anger. What did he take her for?

“Fine. How about a vote from a family of four?” Damian said calmly. “The majority wins. Those in favor of giving Evelyn to me as payment for the debt, raise your hand.”
