Chapter 86 Apologize

I looked at Camille dumbfounded. I could not believe that even after five years, I still had not learned my lesson. I fell into her trap again.

She began acting all goody two shoes. While holding my arm, she started persuading Dominic, “Dom, don’t misunderstand Liliana. I’m sure she didn’t mean any of that. S-she must’ve been too excited. After all, we haven’t met for five years, haven’t we?”

Like hell I’m excited!

I shrugged off her hands before turning to meet Dominic’s frosty stare. Although I had said those words out of spite, was he really in any position to be angry at me? He was the one who left me back then.

“Ahh!” Meanwhile, Camille staggered a few steps back before collapsing to the floor. Dominic reacted quickly and managed to let her fall into him.

“Are you ok?” He was visibly concerned.

“I’m fine. Don’t worry about it.” She did not forget to play the victim while in his arms.

Finding her act repulsive, I tried to squeeze my way out. But before I could walk any further, I felt a sharp jerk on my arm.

“Where do you think you’re going?” Dominic was grabbing me tightly.

Where? Does he expect me to continue watching them?

Not turning back, I answered, “Let go. Where I go is none of your business. Besides, don’t you have more important things to do now?”

“Apologize before you go.”

What a ridiculous command! I turned around and glared at him. “Why should I?”

“Shouldn’t you apologize for your rude behavior? Camille was just greeting you nicely.” His grip tightened, sending a throbbing pain up my arm. He then let go of Camille and pushed me firmly against the wall.

“Enough is enough! I’m not going to apologize to her. Not even in your dreams!”

“Really? Then let’s settle all our scores once and for all. Both old and new.”

I averted my gaze. Despite our close proximity, I could sense how distant we were.

“Dom, forget about it. I’m fine. We’re all friends so there’s no need for an apology.” Faking a concerned look, Camille tugged at his sleeves gently. I could not help but laugh in disbelief.

Dominic was furious. “Why are you laughing?” I felt my arm going numb from his sheer force.

“Nothing. Mr. Hartnell, consider me blind. I shouldn’t go around messing with people I can’t afford to. I’ll stay far away and never appear in front of both of you again.”

Just as the last word escaped my mouth, I felt his fingers dig deep into my arms. Any harder and my bones would dislocate. Yet, my pride got the better of me. I could not let him win. I held back the pain and flashed him a look of triumph.

“I dare you!” Immediately after, he turned toward Camille. “Let’s cancel dinner. I’ll make it up to you another day.”

With that said, he dragged me out. I could not believe how unreasonable he was. How ridiculous it was to leave his fiancée there alone just to settle scores with me!

I glanced back and saw the color having drained off Camille’s face. I could tell she was holding back her anger but she still managed to force a smile before proclaiming, “Don’t worry. I’m sure you two have lots of catching up to do after five long years.”

Ugh. How generous. But wait, what does she mean by five years? Is she unaware that Dominic and I have been in contact with each other?

Just as I was being dragged across the floor, Dominic came to an abrupt halt, causing me to bump into his back.

I looked up to see Nicholas blocking the path. He tilted his head and smiled at me.

“Let’s go back. The dishes have been served.” He walked around us, held my free hand, and led me back to his private room.

Instantly, I felt an even greater force from my other arm. Dominic commanded, “Let go.” I could sense bloodthirst from his voice.
