Chapter 9 Good Acting

  • "Surprised?"
  • Joaquin slowly lit a cigarette, and a light mist blew over Katherine's pretty face.
  • That night, he was in such a hurry that he did not take a good look at her face.
  • When they met again, she had already let her hair down and was uncharacteristically not wearing glasses. She had a delicate face, long eyelashes trembling slightly like the wings of a butterfly, bright eyes, and white teeth.
  • Katherine took a step back. "Sir, I don't know what you are talking about."
  • This man must not have any respectable intentions to be able to find her in such a short period of time and block her way.
  • He looked down at the woman in front of him condescendingly and said with a meaningful tone, "How dare you take what belongs to me? You have guts, I'll give you that."
  • "I didn't."
  • She immediately denied it while noticing that there were no less than five bodyguards around her.
  • Seemingly understanding her thoughts, Joaquin took a step forward. "Don't think about leaving before you hand it to me."
  • "I really don't know—Ah!"
  • The man did not let her speak further. He grabbed her wrist and pushed her into the car, and then he got in after.
  • The lock immediately clicked and the driver started the engine.
  • "What are you trying to do?" Her voice trembled; she was like a frightened rabbit.
  • Joaquin sneered while the dangerous aura overwhelmed the interior of the car. "I must say, your acting is quite good; are you sure you want to continue with the act?"
  • "Sir, I really don't know what you're talking about."
  • Joaquin sneered, then stretched out his hand to grab her chin. His voice was filled with murderous intent. "Still acting? It looks like you don't plan to return the thing, so do you mean to pay me with your body?"
  • Katherine was speechless.
  • At this moment, Katherine finally realized that this man was really not one to be messed with.
  • Suddenly, she thought of something and raised her head to look at Joaquin. Her clear eyes were filled with coldness as she said, "You dare to touch me? Do you know who I am? I am the eldest daughter of the Cornells and the future Mrs. Levisay. If you dare to touch me, neither the Cornells nor the Levisays will let you go."
  • "The future… Mrs. Levisay?" Joaquin narrowed his eyes. Looking at the girl's arrogant face, he slowly smiled.
  • "What? Are you afraid? If you are afraid, just let me go. Otherwise, you will face the consequences." Seeing him like this, Katherine became even more arrogant.
  • Joaquin sneered and said meaningfully, "Yup, I'm really scared."
  • However, there was only a playful smile on his face and no expression of fear at all.
  • Katherine pursed her lips, and her perpetually indifferent expression finally changed a little.
  • The man who dared to kidnap her like this in broad daylight did not seem to be afraid of the Cornells and the Levisays.
