After that, I heard footsteps approaching me before feeling myself being carried off the ground and laid on the bed.
“You're here, Mr. Adler.” I glanced at the time and was surprised to learn that he had stayed here at this hour despite being a busy person.
Augustus pursed his lips, looking dismayed. “You've been getting into a lot of trouble while I wasn't here.”
Despite his expression, he sounded calm, so I knew he was not about to scold me. Even so, the memory of being in the same room with Tiger and the others still haunted me. I didn't have any clue as to how long I had been asleep, but from the looks of my body, I knew I wasn't in the best condition.
“Are you still thinking of that night?” His expression softened, but his tone had gotten colder.
Strings of tears escaped my eyes. He had no idea how afraid I had been. If he had not arrived in the nick of time... I didn't dare imagine what would have happened to me. Tiger was a monster. Someone like him would not follow the rules of a meaningless game. Heck, he had probably already made up his mind not to let me go, to begin with.
