Chapter 256 Relative
- Mandy had always known that Sebastian was a man with a heart of stone, who had no compassion or pity toward other people, but she had never imagined how it would feel if his unfeelingness and cruelty were directed at her. At that moment, Mandy felt like her heart was pierced with daggers. It was almost as painful as being executed by having her flesh shaved away piece by piece.
- Although she wished to say something to persuade Sebastian to not treat her like that, she found herself unable to speak up. Why should she do so when she knew no amount of begging would change Sebastian’s mind? As a person, she knew all along that she should preserve her remaining shred of dignity when the situation called for it.
- Upon reaching that conclusion, she lifted her chin defiantly, her face glowing beautifully under the rays of the sun. Unfortunately, beauty on the surface was never the defining characteristic for a person, as all it could do was add to someone’s merits.
