After Ella spoke, all looks were then set on Janet.

... Janet choked on the piece of rib she was eating, spat it out, and then gulped a glass of juice.

'What's wrong with them these days? Why do both Daniel and mother think I'm pregnant?' thought Janet, even more puzzled by each passing moment.

She also felt very offended. How could she ever get pregnant during her period?

With a snap, Samuel put down his chopsticks on his plate.

"Jane, are you pregnant?" Sally asked. When she heard this, Sally, who was sitting opposite to Janet, was bewildered, and looked at Janet, who was starting to choke on her food.

Daniel was also eating his food, but slowed down and eventually stopped.

When she could speak again, Janet said to her mother, "Mother, I'm your daughter. How can you think that I'm pregnant? You make me feel ashamed of myself and will also ruin my reputation. Have you forgotten already that I've been to the hospital a couple of days ago because of my period?"

Both Samuel and Ella felt relieved when they heard her. 'That's right. How could she get pregnant during her period?' thought Ella.

"But what's wrong with you? Isn't the food I cooked not delicious?" In fact, Ella was good at cooking, so she was even more puzzled at her daughter's response.

Janet felt even more upset and didn't know how to explain to them that she felt ill because of what had happened in Daniel's bathroom last night.

"No. The food you made is, as always, very delicious, mom. Look, " spoke Janet.

With these words, she picked up some braised prawns with her chopsticks from a plate placed in front of her, and thought, 'I'll eat whatever I want and like.'

When they saw Janet enjoying the food, the others continued eating and soon the overall atmosphere around the dining-table was back to normal again.

Daniel, who never spoke during the meal, didn't utter a single word and finished his lunch in complete silence.

After the lunch, Janet and Sally were holding John and playing with him on the creeping mat in the living room.

"Sally, how are you and my brother getting on?" asked Janet. Since Jerry had caught Sally and had taken her back home last time, they had never talked about their wedding ceremony.

Sally blushed a little, and then whispered in Janet's ear, "Jerry said that it was all my fault and there would never be a wedding ceremony for me."

"He can't do this to you! I must get a chance to reason with him!" said Janet. A marriage was not entirely complete without a proper wedding ceremony. After all, two of the most important things in a woman's life are to find the man who truly loves her and have a happy wedding.

The two women kept whispering to each other. Samuel, when he looked at Janet, asked Daniel, who was sitting next to him, "Are you still going on the business trip with Jane this afternoon?"

Janet, while she was chatting with Sally, heard her father's words. She immediately turned around to face him, and said, "Father, I don't need to go on a business trip anymore because I've already quit my job."

"You've quit your job?" asked Samuel. He was a little surprised when he learnt of her resignation all of a sudden. Even Ella, who was helping the servant clear the table, also stopped for a moment and walked up to Janet.

Everyone started to look at Daniel and Janet.

When she saw that Daniel didn't utter a single word in reply, Janet had to take the lead, and said, "That's right, father. I'm going to find a space for my pastry shop this afternoon. I'll run my own pastry shop and pursue the life I really want."

"Father and mother*, I should go now; I need to return the company to deal with something, " said Daniel. While he was speaking, he suddenly stood up from his chair, said his goodbyes to Jerry, and then immediately left.

(*TN: Here father and mother mean sworn father and sworn mother)

Getting a little angry, Janet, who saw him just leave, put John down, and said, "Father, mother, Jerry and Sally, I'm sleepy, and I have to go to bed now! Excuse me!"

...

They saw the two of them, who were very odd, leave the room with confusion in their eyes.

The following days, Janet finally found a suitable shop all by her own.

The shop was in the pedestrian street which was not that far away from The Royal Mansion Neighborhood. In order to support his daughter and her dream, Samuel hired a famous pastry master to help Janet along with things.

As for the funding, Samuel had directly transferred ten million dollars to his daughter's bank account

before Janet even had the chance to ask him to do that.

With this kind of funding in her hands, Janet decorated the shop, purchased some essential, necessary stuff, and hired six employees.

Now Janet had become a pastry chef and the boss of her own business.

Although she was busy decorating her shop in the first few days, Janet took some time off to have a western meal with Brian.

The following day, both Janet and Brian were all over the entertainment news.

The news headlines read "Something good is going to happen with Janet Shao, Samuel Shao's daughter"

The content was speaking about Jane's dating with Brian. Also, the news of Brian's powerful family background had also reached the public. The news revealed that he was a Major, that his grandfather was a retired General, that his uncle was the current Lieutenant General, and that his father had been a prominent member of the Public Security Department before his untimely death.

And to Janet's astonishment, she also found some photos with Brian entering the hotel with her in his arms that fateful evening.

She also saw photos of them leaving the hotel together the following morning.

But Janet was morose when she read the online comments, "Mr. Han is very handsome and Miss Shao is beautiful. They are, indeed, a match made in heaven!"

"Indeed, Miss Shao is just like Mr. Si's sister. Keyboard men, your predictions were horribly accurate!"

"Their relationship grew very fast. But, with their strong family background and so much money on their hands, why did they still have to stay in that hotel room?"

"Will this end in a marriage between two rich and powerful families? Or do they just want to prove the media wrong by posting the news on Weibo?"

...

She was now wondering that, if she wasn't neither a star or a public figure, why did she have to appear in the entertainment news.

'Don't these news agencies have anything else to report on? Or do they want to be closed down?' thought Janet.

She was so angry that she immediately asked Jerry to help her write an official statement on Weibo: "I am Janet Shao, " it read, "Samuel Shao's daughter, but not a public figure. So I, hereby, appeal to the media who shot those furtive photographs to respect the privacy of ordinary people."

The statement was finally posted on Weibo with Jerry's seal stamped at the end of the text's main body.

As for Han family's response, Brian's grandfather asked someone to help delete all of the news at once.

They were coming from a military family after all and couldn't afford to let the bad news affect them in any way.

After the news had been deleted, he immediately called Brian back.

In the study

Charles Han stared at his excellent older grandson, and said, "Brian, are you in a relationship with Janet now?"

Through his troops, Brian had already learned about the news on the Internet.

"No. I'm chasing her, to be honest, but she hasn't accepted me yet, " replied Brian. Charles began to look morose.

"Is it true that they shot your photograph while entering the hotel with her?" asked Charles.

"Yes, it's true, but nothing happened between us. In order to protect her reputation, I didn't bring her to my house, but took her to the hotel instead and then directly left. The media is just stirring up trouble, not explaining that I returned to the hotel the following morning, " said Brian.

The media had just wrote some fantastic news drafts to attract people's attention, without caring about another's reputation.

After he listened to Brian's words, Charles went silent for a while, and then, with his hands behind his back, he looked out the window in the night, and said, "Janet, indeed, has superior tastes. First she turned down my younger grandson, and now she also refused my outstanding older grandson. What on earth does she want?"

He could see that Janet was a careful and considerate girl, but he still wondered why she turned down his outstanding older grandson.

"Grandfather, she, in fact, already has a crush on someone, " spoke Brian. He told Charles all about it; there was no need for him to hide.

When he heard this, Charles got curious, and turned around to ask Brian, "Who?"

'Could he be...' thought Charles.

Brian, when he glanced at his grandfather's expression, knew that his grandfather perhaps had guessed who the crush was, and replied, "Yes, grandfather, that's him; Daniel Si."

With his arms crossed over his chest, Charles sat on the sofa and seemed to be thinking about something.
