Rain looked pale as a ghost. He was still frozen by the old man's words and sorrow hung heavily in his heart. He couldn't move from his place even after the old man had left his side.

"Rain, are you all right?" Leena reached out and gently touched his arm. There was concern in her beautiful eyes and she held his arm to comfort him. Rain seemed to have much lingering in his mind. He looked so gloomy and shocked that she was really worried about his well-being.

Rain quickly forced a smile and said, "Don't worry about me. I'm fine." He realized that his reaction to the news had caused concerns. He felt embarrassed and tried to change the subject. "How's your hand? Let me take a look," he said and took her hand. In his trance, he had grabbed her hand quite forcefully.

Leena flinched and said, "Hey, don't worry about me." She pulled her hand away gently. The last thing she wanted was for him to worry about her bruised hand right now. "Trust me, it doesn't matter," she said with a small smile.

"Shit! It's bruised. I am so sorry, Leena. I didn't mean to hurt you. I had no control over myself," Rain said, when he saw her bruised hand. He rubbed his forehead in distress. He wasn't himself at the time. He was in a state of shock and had no idea what he was doing. He had squeezed her hand to control his anger and grief, but her delicate hand was bruised because of his irrational behavior.

"Rain, there's nothing to apologize for. I can't even fathom what you are going through right now and I want you to know that we are here for you. Always." Leena leaned in closer to him and wrapped her arms around his neck in a heartwarming hug. She had been sitting by his side and listening to every word that the old man had said. The truth had shaken her, but she made peace with it. She had known that Rain's true family was somewhere in the world. However, it never occurred to her that the truth would be this painful. The old man's words made her question the meaning of family bond. After hearing the whole story, she thought that Rain was better off without his so-called family. She, along with his other friends, would be his real family; their relationship with

in her delicate condition.

Leena sighed. She knew what he was thinking. "I'm not ill, you know. I'm just pregnant. I can manage on my own," she gave him a reassuring look and continued, "I can drive back myself. And I don't want to keep you away from your work any longer." She looked at him sternly. She wasn't their little princess in distress anymore. She was perfectly capable of taking care of herself.

Edward wasn't convinced. He asked with a raised eyebrow, "Are you sure that you can manage on your own? Shall I send Luke to accompany you home? I assume he is free now. I can give him a call." Edward's gaze shifted to her pouted belly and his lips compressed into a thin line.

Leena shook her head violently. "Absolutely not! Luke is the last person I want to trouble right now. He must have gone with Michelle for her pregnancy check. They hardly get any time to spend together. I know how precious it is to finally be able to hang out with the person you love. So leave him alone, okay? We should not bother them now." Leena said, with her hands on her hips. Her warning was sweet and needless to say, Edward was amused. Leena rolled her eyes at him. She didn't understand why all of her friends treated her like a spoiled brat who needed constant attention. She was honestly tired of their overreaction towards her pregnancy. She was actually wondering what more ridiculous things they would come up with once her belly started to grow.
