James Grayson carried her into the last cell. The space was too narrow. She can feel his heartbeat with her hands on his chest… Solid and powerful.
Suddenly, she looked up at James Grayson with some sadness in her eyes and some thoughts in her mind.
At least, he’s still alive.
She should thank God that it was his memory, not his life that he took away.
But what was itching in her eyes. Is it unwillingness, sadness, or self-pity?
Bella lowered her head and covered her eyes with long eyelashes. She cannot let him see.
“Is Mr. Grayson a noble person?” The voice of Bryan Damon fell into their ears.
“Yes, he must be. We have got the orders to listen to him.” The director replied.
“Does he have a girlfriend?” Bryan Damon asked blandly, turning on the tap to wash his hands.
“I don’t know. I don’t even know his real identity. How can I know if he has a girlfriend?” The director said with a smile.
“Mr. Grayson is a lady-killer. My assistant and Bella’s face turned red when they saw him.” Bryan Damon said in a strange way. Opened the door and went out.
Did she blush when she saw James Grayson?
Why doesn’t she know?
Bryan Damon’s observation ability was too strong. She was worried.
“You blushed after seeing me?” James Grayson asked with great interest.
“No, maybe it’s because of a little wine. Bryan Damon likes to talk nonsense.” Bella denied.
James Grayson kissed her lips.
Bella moved back.
James Grayson was not happy and pinched her chin.
Bella pushed back James Grayson’s hand and explained, “We’ve been out for a long time. If we don’t go back, they will doubt.”
She didn’t wait for James’s reply. She opened the door and ran out immediately.
She went back to the box. Except James Grayson, everyone was there.
Bryan Damon took a look at Bella and said, “Back after a long time, you were drowned in the bathroom?”
Bella was a little embarrassed.
Bryan Damon has been targeting her.
“Do you need to care about it?” Bella said in a low voice, not paying attention to her tone.
Bryan Damon looked at her and noticed Bella’s sad eyes which seemed shy.
She was shy because Bryan Damon said, that he saw Bella blushing after looking at James Grayson.
Bryan Damon’s eyes were slightly different. He held the cup of tea and took a sip.
Bella ignored her. She peeled the crabs by herself. Bryan Damon put his crab beside her.
Bella looked at him incomprehensibly.
“Peel it for me.” Bryan Damon four simple words.
What does he think of himself?
He thinks she will peel it for him? In his dreams!
“Miss, please peel it for your boss.” Bella handed the plate to his assistant.
Bryan Damon’s face was not good. “You treat the leaders like this?”
“You are not my leader,” Bella said rudely.
Bryan Damon, “…”
James Grayson came in and sat opposite to Bella.
“Does Mr. Grayson have a girlfriend?” Bryan Damon asked directly because he was in a bad mood.
James Grayson took a look at Bella.
“Yes.” He said in a deep voice.
Bella’s heartbeat became fast.
James Grayson not only had a girlfriend, but also a fiancee. Bella’s beating heart calmed down with this thought.
“That’s a pity.” Bryan Damon raised a smile and looked at Bella.
It was the first time that she saw Bryan Damon smiling. He not only smiled but also looked at her to make her feel bad.
At eleven o’clock, after meal-
The man ordered by the director brought eight mats and eight sheets of bedding.
They set out for the castle together. The castle was at a certain distance. It took more than an hour to drive from Pingyan.
Bella didn’t want to talk to Bryan Damon, so she slept as soon as she sat in the car.
She mostly lost sleep at night, and after sleeping in the daytime, she can’t sleep well again so she wasn’t in deep sleep. Suddenly, she felt a hand on her shoulder.
She didn’t know what the other party was up to.
Bryan Damon used some strength.
Bella fell on Bryan Damon’s shoulder.
She smelled the faint smell of Cologne on his body, with a feeling of bewilderment.
She was confused… should she pretend to sleep or she should open her eyes?
She didn’t open it before. Now if she opens it, she will feel embarrassed.
Red signal and the car stopped-
James Grayson’s car stopped beside Bella’s car.
He subconsciously looked into their car and saw Bella leaning on Bryan Damon’s shoulder, his pupils contracted and his eyes were about to burst out with anger.
He picked up his cell phone and called Bella.
Bella’s cell phone rang.
She was glad that someone called her to wake her up so naturally.
Bryan Damon explained, “You fell on my shoulder.”
She took out her mobile phone from her bag and saw that it was James Grayson.
All of a sudden, she was not happy. She answered James Grayson’s call.
“You didn’t get enough sleep in the day?” James Grayson asked in a deep voice.
“Huh?” At first, Bella didn’t understand what James Grayson meant. She subconsciously looked out of the window.
She guessed that James Grayson saw her leaning on Bryan Damon’s shoulder and said, “It won’t happen again.”
“Wake up.” James Grayson said directly in the tone of command.
Bella was very guilty. She seemed to have done something bad and was caught red-handed.
“I got it.” She hung up the phone.
“Your boyfriend is checking on you?” Bryan Damon asked and squinted at Bella.
“Mr. Damon is very nosy,” Bella said and leaned back on the chair.
“Didn’t you say there, you don’t have a boyfriend? I didn’t know that you lied.” Bryan Damon said coldly.
“I am not supposed to tell you anything,” Bella said rudely.
Bryan Damon kicked the seat in front of him.
In the front seat, there was Bryan Damon’s assistant. The assistant turned pale.
She knew that Mr. Damon didn’t like to be criticized. She immediately explained, “Mr. Damon never meddles. He is very responsible. Miss Bella, you are a team member, he cares a little more.”
Bella didn’t want to have a fight with Bryan Damon. After all, they had to solve the case together. After a while, she shifted the topic and asked the policeman, “How long it will take?”
“More half an hour. To be honest, you are really brave. There is another thing that our director didn’t tell you. In 2007, something creepy happened in this castle.” The officer said.
“What had happened?” Bella asked.
Bella had an instinct that this creepy thing would be the beginning of the case.
