Sasha followed behind Luke as they entered.
The closer they got, the clearer the roars of a woman could be heard. The maids were all visibly on edge as they frantically scrambled past her.
Just when she wanted to close the distance with Luke, Sasha heard a throaty shriek, “Sebastian, I dare you to f*cking call the cops on me!”
The words were extremely vulgar.
Sasha’s expression darkened in response while Luke was equally outraged.
“Is that woman crazy to threaten Mr. Hayes with that? Does she really think he’s incapable of doing it?”
With fury welling inside him, his stride turned into a sprint.
Noticing the increase in pace, Sasha followed accordingly.
Just when both of them were about to arrive, a thunderous and sharp slap rang out in their ears. Sabrina’s brazen words might have infuriated someone inside.
“Sabrina, I dare you to repeat what you said! Are you challenging me to punish you now?”
A terrifying voice of an old man could be heard, clearly infuriated. Despite the distance, one could still feel the anger emanate through every single one of his words.
Frederick had slapped Sabrina.
The sweat in Sasha’s hands intensified when she heard the commotion.
Hurrying up, she finally arrived in the hall full of tension and saw Sabrina reeling on the floor after being slapped.
Meanwhile, Frederick was holding his walking stick, standing beside her with bloodshot eyes.
Is she out of her mind?
Why does she insist on infuriating him when she knows the old man has high blood pressure? What if something undesirable happens?
Sasha staggered into the hall. “Frederick, calm… calm down. It’s not as serious as you think. As you can see, I’m fine.”
She quickly grabbed his hand, worried that his temper would flare again.
Not expecting her to appear all of a sudden, Sebastian shot Luke a fearsome glare, who averted his gaze out of guilt.
“Alright, Frederick, calm down. Let me help you to your seat.”
Sasha ignored Sebastian on purpose, who was glaring at her from the upper right-hand corner of the hall. Lowering her gaze, she helped Frederick settle down in front of the hall.
After a few minutes of rest and a cup of hot tea, Frederick finally got a grip on himself.
“Sasha, I’m sorry. It appears that our family has caused you to suffer again.” Holding Sasha, his voice was choking from guilt.
Shaking her head vehemently, she couldn’t bring herself to blame him. After all, he was like a father to her.
Sasha chose to compromise. “Don’t say that, Frederick. It was my fault that Sabrina reacted that way as I had transferred her to the psychiatric department the day before.”
“What? The psychiatric department?”
Frederick’s eyes lit up in response.
Suppressing the conflicting emotions in her heart, Sasha nodded while feigning guilt.
“Yes, the psychiatric department. I’m sorry, Frederick. When Sabrina came over then, she was ranting emotionally. Worried that it would affect the hospital, I had her sedated and sent to the psychiatric department. I planned to free her when I finished work. But somehow, she managed to let herself out.”
Just as she expected, Frederick was visibly relieved after hearing her words.
However, Sebastian’s expression darkened after hearing her explanation. Through his gritted teeth, he spat, “Idiot!”
Sasha was speechless.
Forget it. I’ll just pretend I didn’t hear him.
Still reeling on the floor, Sabrina was surprised that Sasha revealed that unrelated incident. She sneered the moment she heard it.
What an idiot. Does she think the Hayes will feel grateful to her for doing that?
At the end of the day, she is no more but a pawn of the family.
Unfortunately, Sabrina wasn’t grateful for Sasha’s actions at all.
Unexpectedly, when she felt Sebastian’s icy gaze enveloping her, a sense of dread suddenly swelled up within her.
“So that’s what happened. I had thought that scum harmed you for no good reason. Just a moment ago, I simply had the urge to beat her to death with my walking stick.”
“No, no, it’s not like that.”
Both Sasha and Frederick didn’t notice what was going on between the two other persons while they were still focused on Sabrina’s matter.
Frederick was delighted to hear Sasha’s denial. “That’s good to hear. Was everything alright when you were locked up in the police station yesterday?”
“Yea, it’s fine. I was in the questioning room the whole time. Nothing much happened inside,” Sasha continued.
She knew she had to do it given how obvious Frederick’s intentions were.
Although Frederick treated her well, she was cognizant that Sabrina was still his daughter at the end of the day. From his perspective, he would definitely want to save her and not see her suffer.
Therefore, she had no choice but to deny it and simply saw it as a means to repay Frederick for the concern he had shown her.
