Joe's words warmed Jean's heart to its very core and melted all the spite and anger that had existed inside. Some guilt also arose in her, for being treated so well by her little nephew, in spite of her bad behavior towards Cherry all these years. It showed that he was a nice little boy, who bore no ill-will towards anyone. She could now see that her sister had done a good job of raising him.

On the other hand, from Joe's perspective, he finally understood why his mom didn't hate Auntie Jean anymore. She had forgiven her after holding a grudge after all those years so he understood that hatred should never exist between family members. Whatever happens, family always comes first and that can happen only by maintaining good relations. Besides, after meeting his Auntie, he had come to like and know her merits during their brief liaisons. Since there was no bad blood between the sisters, he had decided to treat her nicely and change his initial behavior towards her. Yet another thing was that Joe thought Jean might know some information that his parents refused to tell him, so he had come to her to get it out of her.

After pondering on whether or not to ask the question, Joe changed the topic and asked, "By the way, Jean did you know that our former butler got into an accident? He was very close to our family."

Jean nodded, with a slight change in her facial expressions. She did not seem to have realized that her answer held great value to Joe. She replied, "I heard the news."

Trying to subtly continue his line of questioning, Joe kept asking, "Jean, did you know our butler very well? Had you met him a lot of times?"

Jean did not notice that Joe was trying to investigate the butler. She answered as if it were just small talk. "I know a little about him. He had accompanied Andrew for a long time and had watched Jackson grow up from being a little kid. However, " Jean paused for a second before she continued, "He deserves what he got, because he betrayed the Chu Family and did many awful things."

"Did he really betray the Chu Family?" asked Joe. His heart sank on hearing about the betrayal. He was s

t go? Did you learn anything new? What do we do next? Don't we need a plan of action?"

Joe answered, "Calm down. Everything is going well. I discovered some valuable information today. Apparently, the butler's death was connected to the mystery of the lost token. It seems to be precious because the person called Mond wants it badly too."

Mike nodded in approval and relayed, "Oh, yes, I've heard of Mond. I asked my Dad about him the other day and he said that Mond and your Daddy are rivals. They hated each other and he kept trying to destroy your Daddy's JS Group behind his back."

Joe didn't focus on Mond and said what he had thought, "I feel like the butler died of an accident. Is it likely what happened?"

"Joe, do you mean that..." Mike thought of something but was unsure of whether he should finish his words.

"It's possible but we'll never be able to figure it out because my Daddy is certain to have buried the truth, " said Joe, having latched onto the meaning of Mike's pause.

Mike agreed with him and said, "Indeed."

Joe did not want to dwell on this topic for too long. He instructed, "Well, you keep an eye on your father and immediately tell me if you hear anything about me or my family."

Mike asked, "Okay, I will do that. What about you?"

"I'll look around my house to check if any clues were left behind. It's unlikely though because my Daddy is a highly observational person."
