Jean closed her eyes again. She wondered what would Zed's reactions be if he found out that she was kidnapped and had jumped out of a moving car to get away.

"Mr. Qi, her injuries are not serious, however she is a little weak and needs to stay in the hospital so that we can make sure she'll have a full recovery. After that, she can be discharged."

'A woman's voice, sounds like a doctor of this hospital.'

"What about her wounds? Are you sure everything is alright?"

"Yes, the car wasn't moving too fast when she jumped out of the car, and besides, she landed on the lawn, which cushioned the impact for her. In addition to her previously healed injury, all she has is just some bruises."

Jean, who was pretending to sleep, was shocked. Did Zed know she jumped out of the car?

For Zed, he naturally knew what the previous injury the doctor was talking about was. After a few seconds of silence, Zed replied, "Alright, I understand!"

"Then I will be leaving, if anything happens please call me anytime."

This time, Zed didn't make a sound. His gloomy eyes had been fixated on the person in bed the whole time.

The doctor tactfully left the patient's room.

The room returned to silence once again. The silence made Jean nervous for some reason.

At the same time, her heartbeat rose rapidly. Jean could even hear her own heartbeat loudly.

And the approaching footsteps.

One, two, three, four......

Suddenly the footsteps stopped, and Zed's breathing got heavier.

So awkward!

Jean suddenly didn't know what to do next. Should she continue pretending to be asleep, or should she wake up now?

Right when Jean had no idea of what to do, in this room, where there was only the two of them, the vibrating sound of a cellphone suddenly sounded.

Zed reached for his phone in his coat pocket. It was from his secretary. A mixed feeling came to him.

Zed had asked his secretary to get the surveillance video, he must have gotten it!

Zed glanced at Jean subconsciously, before he clenched his phone and left the room.

Hearing the door close, Jean let out a breath of relief.

Luckily, he didn't notice!

Just, it was unknown if Zed would find out that it was Winner that was behind all of this.

Whatever, forget it! Anyways, now that whatever Winner was planning had turned into failure, no further movements should be made. Jean felt that she should come up with a way to give Zed back to Eva, instead of thinking about the Wens.

Right, Eva! Right now, Zed was at the hospital. Eva sure wouldn't let go of this chance to have an encounter with Zed.

Just do it!

Jean sent Eva a message without hesitation telling her that Zed was at the hospital.

Just as Jean had expected, Eva first showed her worries and when she learned that it was Jean who was in hospital, her worries swiftly changed to nothing.

She hung up the phone after a few words.

Jean started to picture Eva hugging and kissing Zed.


As the crack in the door pulled open wider, Shirley Wen's face gradually approached Winner.

"Spit it out, what do you want? Or did you just come to make fun of me?"

"What nonsense are you saying, why would I want to make fun of you? I just think that y

ou've been acting weird recently, it's not your style. You used to disappear for days, and everyday you would go out before sunrise and don't return home until it's very late. Tsk tsk, I wonder what has changed you? Staying at home every day, aren't you feeling dull?"

There was a sense of mockery in these teasing words.

Shirley knew it herself that Winner was in big trouble this time.

"I've had enough fun out there. I suddenly want to stay at home and nicely rest for some time, so what? Not allowed?"

Winner shrugged his shoulders and acted as if it was none of his business.

Instead of getting agitated, Shirley laughed.

"No, of course not. Yesterday I heard mom say that you really became mature. You stay at home and keep mom and dad company. You also go work at dad's company and share his burden. Our mother is really happy about your changes, just out of curiosity, how would she react if she finds out the truth?"

Winner's heart skipped a beat, and he began shivering, exuding helplessness and fear.

"Do you still remember our deal? If you get rid of Jean, I will give you some money to help you get out of your dilemma."

Naturally Winner remembered what Shirley had said.

It was her words that made him irrational......

"Okay, you can tell me now. What have you done recently? Why are you staying at home everyday, not daring to go out?"

Winner feigned an innocent look and glanced at Shirley. Staring blankly for a moment, then suddenly as if he'd remembered something important, irrelevantly replied, "I didn't do anything though. What can I do? Last time, I agreed to help you rough up Jean Wen, but then after thinking about it, she's also my big sister after all, so I gave up. After all, I've spent too much time fooling around, how could I grow up if I continue doing so?"

It sounded quite reasonable.

Shirley had already experienced her brother's eloquence. Even when the evidence was presented before him, he could still convince the police officers to give it up, let alone just tell a blank lie without even blinking.

It seemed she would have to attend to this matter personally if she wanted to teach Jean a lesson. It was a mistake to rely on Winner.

"Shirley, what do you think our father has been up to recently?"

Getting no response from Shirley, Winner got closer subconciously and asked with caution.

Shirley was busy thinking about how to deal with Jean. After all, the last time she was humiliated by Jean, was still vivid in her mind. She must find a way to take revenge on Jean for such an embarrassment.

Suddenly Winner's oily face came up to her. Startled, she cursed, "Do you want to die? Don't you know how to speak properly? Why are you so close?"

A flattering smile appeared on Winner's face, and he said, "I just saw that you were distracted and was afraid that you didn't hear me clearly, so I came up closer to ask you what dad has been up to lately?"

Shirley rolled her eyes at Winner and said, "Didn't I tell you last time? Zed is suing dad, and dad doesn't know what to do. You confidently swore you would take care of this matter, I thought that you'd really come up with some brilliant plan, but it turns out that I was wrong."
