"Okay, ask Leena to call Kevin. He is really worried about her." Belinda knew that Kevin was concerned for Leena. Kevin had never called Belinda personally before. Had it not been for his worry for his wife, he would not have called Belinda several times in such a short span.

"Fine. I'll ask her later. You are busy. We'll talk later. I have to get Leena some food." Duke glanced at the blackened porridge made by Gerard. He didn't dare give it to Leena to eat, fearing that she might get diarrhea before she even recovered from the cold.

"Okay. Keep in touch. Goodbye!" Belinda hung up and walked out of the office with her documents. Duke pursed his lips, turning to stare at Leena.

"Duke, why are you looking at me like that? It's scaring me." Leena frowned, wondering why Duke was acting so strangely.

"Take a look at your cell phone." Although Belinda had asked Duke to tell Leena to call Kevin, Duke was reluctant to swallow his pride. He let Leena find out herself that Kevin had called her.

"What's wrong with my phone?" Leena looked around for her cell phone. She finally found it lying under the quilt. She picked it up, finding that it was turned off. Perhaps she had accidentally pressed the shutdown button.

Duke thought, 'I figured she didn't hear the ring because of the fever. It turns out her phone was turned off. No wonder Kevin is anxious. If I were Kevin, I would be anxious too.' Duke turned to the kitchen without answering Leena.

Watching Duke go toward the kitchen, Leena turned on the phone. Just like she guessed, Kevin had made hundreds of calls to her. Leena smiled, remembering what she had said last night. At the moment, she didn't know if she should call him back.

'It must be afternoon there. Kevin would be at the army base. I would be interrupting his work if I call him now. Should I call him when he's free?' Leena wondered. Before Leena could decide whether or not she should call Kevin, her phone rang, startling her.

Kevin had been worrying about Leena for more than ten hours now. He had been unable to reach her. Although he knew that Duke had flown to Paris, he wasn't sure if he had arrived yet. What if something happened to her before then? 'Who is taking care of her?' Kevin kept wondering, trying to call L

Duke there yet?" Kevin was still worried that no one was there to take care of her.

"Yeah, he is. Don't worry. He'll take care of me." Leena looked up at Duke. He raised his eyebrows at her, urging her to eat.

"Eat! Or the food will get cold. Whom are you talking to?" Duke asked loudly, making sure that Kevin heard him. His mouth was set in a grim line. It didn't matter that he no longer hated Kevin as much as he used to.

"Leena, you gotta eat something now. I'm ending the call. Rest well. I'll call you after work." Kevin heard Duke, so he stopped bothering Leena so she could eat. He didn't want her to go hungry.

"Okay. Bye." Leena was relieved that he hadn't mentioned the words 'I miss you' she said last night. She was feeling so fragile when she had said that to him. She didn't actually want to confess to it.

Kevin put the phone aside. He wondered why his heart ached. Did he love her? He could not help but step on the brakes as the question popped into his head, but soon drove off. 'After all, she is my wife. I should take care of her when she is sick, ' he thought.

It was sultry in the afternoon at the military base. It was estimated that it was going to rain. A few dragonflies flew over the military base yard, making the vast region seem a little lonely. No sooner had Kevin returned to the office that Daisy knocked on his door, promptly walking in.

"Major General, are you free tonight?" Daisy asked with a faint smile on her face, sitting down before Kevin could speak.
