"What should I do with my time then? How about taking me out to dinner with you?" Daisy teased, smiling broadly. She had developed beyond the aloof military officer and could now relax with the people she cared about.

"No. Leena and I are going out on a date." Edward raised his head, acting proud and offended.

"Daisy, I'd rather go out on a date with you. Let's go and leave him behind." Leena winked at Daisy and hugged her dear friend. She pulled a face at Edward and stuck out her tongue.

"Yeah, sure, why not?" Daisy pinched Leena's chubby cheek softly, and cast a challenging glance at Edward.

"Never mind! Women are way too fickle to ever understand. Alright, my two beloved princesses, where would you like to eat? It's my treat," Edward said feigning a hurt expression as he raised his wallet.

"Leena, where would you like to go for dinner? You're pregnant, so you decide." Daisy asked Leena to select a restaurant. When Daisy had received the news of Leena's pregnancy, she had breathed a long sigh of relief. She immediately called Leena up to relate her joy and her own experiences with pregnancy.

"Uh... Anywhere is fine with me. You don't have to specially cater for me." Leena thought, 'They are all overreacting, and they are even more nervous than me.'

"Let's go to the Westin. I'll ask them to prepare some delicious soup for Leena," Edward suggested seeing the two women's indecisiveness.

"Sure. Leena, let's go there." Daisy held Leena's hand and they walked slowly towards the elevator. She was a caring maternal figure.

The three entered the elevator, joking and chatting at ease. When the elevator stopped at the first floor, an unexpected figure was waiting for them outside — Rain. He was leaning against a pillar in the lobby, hands resting in his pockets. His face still bore the ever present cynical scowl.

"Rain, what are you doing here?" Leena asked in surprise, walking up to Rain.

"I was waiting for you." Rain reached out and embraced Leena with genuine warmth. He had also heard the news and was extremely happy for her.

"How did you know we were going out?" Edward asked with a frown. This time, he was not as sharp witted as normal.

"I saw Mark in the lobby, and the elevator was going down. No one could

could tell from Rain's reaction that he knew this old man somehow. Otherwise, Rain wouldn't have acted this way.

"I know that you still hate me, even after all these years." Sanford Ke's frail body trembled like a candle flame flickering in the wind.

"I don't even know you. Why would I hate you?" Rain asked coldly. His face was twisted in a cold rage and he looked very frightening at this moment.

"Rain," Leena called out to him, worried now.

"Mr. Ke, why don't you join us in our private lounge?" Edward suggested. The lobby was too public to talk.

"Sure!" Sanford Ke answered, happy for the opportunity to speak privately.

"I don't think that's necessary," Rain interrupted angrily. He really had nothing to say to the old man.

"Rain. Come now, this is not the place for this conversation." Edward patted Rain's shoulder in appeasement. He knew Rain hated his father, but he also believed Rain needed to talk with him.

Rain pursed his lips and rushed to their private room, still holding Leena's hand and dragging her away.

Daisy momentarily stared at the old man in confusion. He and Rain shared some resemblance; then she realized that the old man must be Rain's biological father. She sighed with resignation.

"Let's go, Mr. Ke," Edward said to the old man. Yes, Sanford Ke had mistreated Rain when he was young. But now he was old, and possibly did not have many more years to live. Edward was afraid Rain would feel regret for not talking with his father now if the old man died.
