"Have dinner with you? May I know why I have the honor?" Leena stopped, turned to look at Dorothy in bewilderment, and wondered what on earth this woman was up to.

Dorothy burst into laughter at Leena's uncertainty. "It's just a meal, and a welcome opportunity for conversation. I hold nothing against you, I promise. There's no need to worry, I'm not an enemy. I'm working for the FX International Group now, remember? I heard that you and our boss are good friends, so it's only natural that we connect. I have hoped that having a meal and a chat, might start our friendship." Dorothy assured her. Her carefully chosen words were aimed at making refusal impossible, and she watched Leena enquiringly.

"Seems that you know a lot about me, Miss Lu. Let me guess: You are aware that I am Kevin's wife?" Dorothy nodded, and Leena continued, "In that case, I should get to know you too." Leena's reply was laced with an ironic smile. It was a cunning woman who stood in front of her, she thought to herself. Strategically, Dorothy had mentioned the FX International Group to cotton up to Leena. If Leena declined her offer, she would seem most ungracious.

"I see that I can hide nothing from you. I know that Major General Gu is your husband, but only became aware of this fact after I signed with the FX International Group. Someone mentioned it, and then I understood why you had been so hostile to me. Please don't misunderstand, there's nothing between Major General Gu and I. I visited him that day to express my gratitude, and that was all. I never expected that the paparazzi would snap a shot of us together, and cook up a story which could provoke so much discussion." Dorothy explained with fake innocence. She would never confess that she was behind all of this, or that it had been she who had leaked their whereabouts to the press. Hungry for stories, they had helped her start the rumor. Gossip had been her goal after all.

"I'm afraid that you have misunderstood me. I have never believed the press lies, nor did I ever hold hostility towards you. It's just that ... I'm introverted and not very good at socializing. If I happened to offend you

steady. Kevin's discovery that she had been taking medicine, left her a bit flustered. She tried not to stare at the medicine bag in Kevin's hand, her face turning pale. Feigning composure, she turned to look at him.

"Yeah. I finished work early today, so I came home early. Now, what is this?" Kevin insisted, as he examined the bag carefully. He couldn't figure out what was inside, and his brows knitted together as he puzzled over the thing.

"Well... it's nothing. Tom said that my physique is poorly, and he suggested that I take some medicine to improve my general health," Leena answered with a bright smile. Luckily, she had not been in very good physique recently, and Kevin knew that. Hopefully Kevin would find that reason enough for her to take medicine.

"When did he suggest this? Why didn't you, or he tell me about it?" Kevin demanded, still frowning. From his point of view, Leena's condition was quite a big deal. Tom should have discussed it with him beforehand. He was Leena's husband after all.

Leena giggled lightly upon hearing his words. "Take it easy, dear. Honestly, I've only taken it for a few days now. I just didn't have a chance to tell you about it. You've been so busy recently." Leena shrugged off his concerns. She would not admit that she had in fact, taken this medicine for nearly a month! The medicine made her horribly sick every time, but she forced herself to drink it, for Kevin's sake.
