"I literally just arrived at home when Huey called me," Rain replied curtly. He kept his eyes on Joyce, not meeting Annie's gaze.

"Thank you for taking us here. I didn't know what I'd do if you weren't here." Then, Rain looked at Annie. She panicked all of a sudden -- what if he knew that another man had confessed his love to her?

"Thank you? Are you kidding me? Joyce is my daughter. Don't thank me as if I'm just some random guy who was kind enough to lend a helping hand," Rain snapped back at Annie.

"No, please don't get me wrong. I didn't mean it that way." she defended.

"Okay. Why don't you tell me what you meant? And what happened to Joyce? Where did you go?" Rain held his stare on Annie, expecting a decent explanation. 'Why is she like this? The way she talks... it's like I'm not even the father of her children!' he thought to himself.

Annie looked away, unable to handle his burning glare. "I... well... Fred said it was nice in the countryside, so we took the children for a picnic today." She stole a quick glance towards Rain. "It was all my fault, and had nothing to do with Fred." The last sentence had Rain infuriated. 'Really? I was just asking where you went. You couldn't wait to defend that brat. You really love him, huh?' he thought.

"Ha-ha! Really? If you wanted to go out on a date with that man, just go with him by yourself. Why did you have to bring my children there? What were you thinking? Do you want my children to call him dad and have a happy family dinner?" Rain spat sarcastically. "Did you even have any idea that it's winter now and how much colder it is in the countryside?" Rain fired one question after another, his eyes glistening with anger.

Annie looked down, her hands balling up to fists at her sides. "Rain Xia," she said, her voice trembling. "Why are you so mean to me? I was so scared just moments ago that I might lose Joyce. I'm in this strange city, with no one to turn to. I don't know where the nearest hospital is. Eve

that he was on the verge of tears. Annie turned to him, suddenly full of worry.

"Hey, Rain. Are you okay?" Annie bit her lower lip. 'Did he really get hurt from what I said?'

Rain convincingly acted like he was sad, but in reality, he was thrilled. He had just found out that Annie still loved him, and that was the best news he had ever heard in a long time.

"Rain?" Annie called out as her hand reached to touch his back. 'Did he really believe what I said?' she thought.

"Shh!" Rain suddenly looked up at her. "Don't talk. Let me take a close look at you." He cupped her face and gazed at her affectionately. All this time, he had thought that she didn't love him anymore. But now, things were different. He didn't know what he needed to do. Right now, all he wanted to do was to kiss her right then and there. His face inched closer to hers, his breath hot on her face. Annie was surprised, but she didn't resist.

Just when their lips were about to meet, Joyce groaned, waking up from her sleep. Annie and Rain straightened up right away.

"Uh, I'm going check on Joyce." Annie stood and walked up to Joyce.

Rain was a little disappointed, but a strong raging fire was starting to burn inside him. This was the chance he had waited so many years for. It was just a matter of time for them to get back together.
