The other Zhio that I've never known has woken up.
And he was now angry.
"Could you take back everything that happened by hitting me?" he grasped my arm, "You're just wasting your strength. Starting today…every time you refuse to obey…just think of what I could do to your family."
He released my arm.
Did he just threaten my family?
My blood boiled at how arrogant he was but all I could do was slap him once more.
He slowly touched his cheek that I've hit and looked at me sharply.
I wanted to run but he held my hands tight again. His grip forced me to look at his smirking face.
My tears fell.
"You're angry!" his eyes narrowed but his dangerous smile remained,
"Well, I expect you to get angrier because from now on…this room will be your world! …do you understand?"
His grip hurts.
And my thumping heart hurts.
Did he mean I'd be locked here?
He let go of my arm and took one last look at me before turning away.
"Zhio!..." I tried to run after him.
"Let's talk properly! You can't keep me in here!"
He closed the door and locked it from the outside.
This can't be…
((( SYA )))
I and the other maids stayed in line below the stairs. There were yelling from upstairs but we couldn't meddle in or dare to walk away unless we were told. Zhio expected our presence at the moment.
"Let's talk!" We heard Claire's voice before the double doors closed.
Zhio stood for a minute in front of the door, holding the latch as he listened to Claire's faint sobs. He breathed heavily before securing the locks tight.
"Buy whatever she needs," he ordered when he descended to meet us.
"Because she'll be living in this mansion."
"Don't ever take her out of that room," he cut my words venomously.
I felt afraid for him. He's went across the line and I'm worried he'd suffer the consequences for it.
