August retorted as he glared at the hand that was holding on to Gwenda's arm.
The air was filled with an ominous aura that caused the room to feel cold.
Realising that something was amiss, Gwenda looked up at the two men and quickly stepped forward. "August, please don't get the wrong idea. He's my friend, Olivier Petit. Mr. Petit, this is my cousin, August Reed."
The two men looked at Gwenda in surprise.

August grunted in confirmation and asked, "What were you two doing just now?"
"N-nothing! Since it's over, we can go now."
Gwenda went up to her cousin and grabbed his hand, dragging him away as she said, "Mr. Petit, we'll be leaving first."
"Gwenda, let go of me..."
August roared angrily, "Don't try to fool me!"
"Let's talk as we go..."
Gwenda forcibly pulled him away.
