"If you didn't tease me intentionally, I wouldn't have retorted back. My time is too precious for that but you gave me no choice." During fights like these, Edward was as cunning as a fox. No wonder he could make managing a grand company look so effortless.

"Oh, never mind. I'm going downstairs now. Please, you guys enjoy bickering after I'm gone." With that, Daisy turned around, leaving them alone. Out of sight, out of mind. She decided not to waste any more of her time trying to get them to act civil around each other.

It was a fancy dinner that consisted of various dishes which Justin and Daisy liked. Although he wasn't sure if he'd make it, Leo did everything in his power to gain their favor. Otherwise, he wouldn't have known their preferences.

"I'd like to make a toast. It's an amazing opportunity for us to be together, and I thank everyone for coming. I wish for all of us, a healthy body, and happy life. Cheers!" Leo's voice trembled as he spoke in front of a lot of people. It was the first time in a long while since so many people gathered together like today.

Everyone, except Daisy, raised their glasses. And although Leo noticed it, as much as he felt sad and awkward, he couldn't help but think that he deserved it. It was his own fault.

"Mommy," Justin implored with desperate eyes. He was feeling sorry for his grandfather.

"I'm sorry! I'm just not feeling too well right now. Alcohol is just too much for me." By being there alone, Daisy had already compromised so much. But drinking? She just couldn't make herself do it.

"I'll drink in her place," offered Edward, coming to her rescue. "She went to the sea yesterday, and doesn't feel too well." Aware of the great compromise that Daisy did to appease his request, Edward understood why she'd rather not drink with Leo.

"I suppose we can't force you then, Daisy. Be careful," Leo said, forcing out an awkward smile.

Secretly, Brian was upset too. He knew who was responsible for this. It was his mother, and knowing that it was her, he felt so much more ashamed.

Despite the fact that dinner seemed peaceful on the outside, the depressing atmosphere made them feel suffocated. In the end, it wasn't an enjoyable

eight, and an even bigger fear, that their husband would resent them because of it. Leena was no exception. And so, any chance she got, she would ask Kevin for validation to put those worries to rest.

"Really? But I just feel like I'm so clumsy now." Frustrated, she also worried that her baby might not be getting enough nutrition. So even when she didn't feel like it, she forced herself to eat a lot of nutrient-rich food. But upon looking at herself lately, she wondered whether she overdid it as her body grew thicker with each passing day.

"You're not clumsy, darling. That's just your imagination. I mean, you have a baby in your belly, all right? It's normal to feel off balance sometimes," Kevin reasoned with the pregnant woman. "Come on then." He helped her up. "I'll walk you to the toilet." Secretly worried that she might fall down again, he offered to walk her there just in case. 'Better to be safe than sorry,' he thought.

"Oh no!" said Leena, shaking her head. "You don't have to. I'll be fine by myself." Her face turned red immediately after he offered to bring her to the bathroom. Despite being married for a long time, she still wasn't used to Kevin being openly intimate with her.

"Okay. You be careful, okay?" Kevin said uneasily. In three months, a new baby was going to join them, and bring so much joy into their lives. For a man like Kevin, he couldn't ask for more, as having a healthy baby with Leena had always been everything he dreamed of.
