Henry Wen did not expect that Winner would say such rebellious words to him.

He meant to let the matter settle once Winner had admitted to his mistake and promised to fix all this. He had even considered forcing Winner to ask Jean for forgiveness. Considering how soft-hearted she was, the apology might have settled Jean.

What kind of man was Winner...

"Get out of here. Get out. Don't call me father from now on."

Henry Wen screamed hysterically. His wrinkled face turned red from the exertion.

Shirley who had been standing right beside them all this time, did not dare to make a sound. She didn't even move! She was afraid that their father would take his anger out on her. So she only watched them without saying a word.

It seemed that she could not do anything except wait for their father to calm down and their mother to return home, so that Henry and Joy could speak and decide how to deal with the situation caused by Winner.

"Fine. I will just leave. Do you think I am proud to be your son?"

Winner said with a sneer before turning and leaving the house.

The room suddenly got quiet.

It was so silent that Shirley could hear her father's heavy breathing.

After a while, Shirley finally summoned the courage to step forward. She gently took the broom out of her father's hand and whispered," Dad."

Lost in his thoughts, Henry did not seem to have heard her.

...

At the hospital, Jean whined," When can I be discharged from the hospital?"

Jean got bored of fiddling with her cellphone. All of a sudden, she seemed to realize something very important and looked at the man beside her with a big smile.

During Jean's stay in the hospital, Zed Qi kept her company. Even when there were extremely urgent issues at the company for him to take care of in person, he would ask his secretary to send the important documents to the hospital.

Hence, whenever Jean Wen was lying in bed and getting bored, she would turn and speak with Zed. No matter what time of the day or night, he would sit beside her and quietly process files.

She had to admit that she was attracted to men who were truly devoted to their work.

On several occasions, Jean watched Zed slyly and found that she was entranced.

At this moment, his long, slender eyes had narrowed to a slit. To her, the expression seemed to add depth and charm to his face. He was wearing a slight smile on his lips, a sly one.

She was indeed fascinated.

Jean Wen could not stop her mind from its naughty thoughts.

Of course, it was just for a moment.

"Hey, when can I be discharged?" she asked again when Zed didn't reply.

"The doctor says you are still too weak to leave the hospital." Zed replied in a cold tone.

"But I feel that I'm well enough already. See, I am fine." Jean continued to whine when she didn't get a proper response.

"Are you?"

Zed lifted his eyebrows and glanced at Jean. He had been through this argument with her so many times that he no longer took her questions seriously.

"It's my body after all. Wouldn't I be the best judge of how I feel?" Jean muttered.

To convince Zed, Jean smiled like a blossomed flower. When she received no reaction, she spoke with Zed Qi in a pretty flattering tone," I am fine. Really! Nothing to worry about. If you don't believe me, you can check. I just got a small scrape on my leg. Everything else is a superficial wound. Besides, I have been in the hospital for so long. Even if anything serious had happened, it should have healed by now, right?"

On hearing this, Zed fell into a thoughtful silence.

Jean's heart soared as she took his silence as an indicator that he was considering whether or not to believe her. Her face instantly turned radiant with joy and expectation.

If Zed agreed with her about leaving the hospital, she could find herself a job and then look for a house...

Thus, she could completely get rid of her family and... Zed Qi!

Zed lifted the corners of his lips. The smile he wore now conveyed where his thoughts were headed. Zed slowly put down the file in his hand, stood, and walked to her bedside. He leaned over and stopped right before her face.

Jane's breath hitched when she realized w

hat Zed was about to do. As he neared her bedside, she found herself struggling to breathe.

Damn it!

"What... What are you doing!"

Jean sputtered when Zed came close to her. She tried to calm herself but found that his proximity was making it very challenging to settle her heart beat.

Zed Qi raised his eyebrows again and said in a hoarse voice. The low rumble made him more attractive.

"What do you think I am doing?"

"I..."

What a shame! So overwhelmed was Jean that she could not even speak a word!

Jean Wen forced herself to calm down, however, her heart continued to beat faster and faster. Her pale cheeks also blushed crimson at once.

"You what?" Zed murmured with his eyes half closed.

"I... Nothing! I am leaving the hospital! I... I am all right now and I don't like the hospital. It's full of the disgusting smell of medicine."

Jean Wen randomly found an excuse. The excuse suited her purpose as she knew that the sooner she left the hospital, the sooner she could get rid of these troubles.

What's more, Eva Xu was still in need of her help.

Zed Qi remained silent as he studied Jean's face. His eyes were full of tenderness. So sincere and fervent.

"Is that so?" he mumbled as his eyes locked on to her soft lips. "I am not going to let you leave the hospital until the doctor says you are well enough."

His voice was so magnetic that Jean Wen could not help feeling entranced.

She believed that she would die of shock if she kept talking to him.

"But..." Jean's mind was so consumed with what Zed was going to do that she took his statement to mean that he would agree with her. Jean felt a glimmer of hope and she gave up struggling.

"But what?"

Zed looked at Jean flirtatiously, daring her to explain herself.

Jean blushed as she knew what thoughts were running through Zed's mind. This was all a big game to him. He was using his close proximity and seductive charm to keep her from thinking clearly. And it was working!

Indeed it was. The smile on his face grew," But if you can prove to me that you are truly all right, then I will trust that you have healed completely."

Jean looked at him sheepishly. A look of disbelief crossed her face. This is not what she had intended when she had asked him to check.

"Really?"

Zed slowly inched closer till there was barely any distance between their lips. "Mm-hmm," he moaned.

"How... how do you want me to prove it to you?" Jean breathed out.

"I have an idea," Zed murmured.

At that moment, Jean Wen thought her heart was going to jump out of her chest.

Before she could process what he had said, Zed reached out and carefully grabbed her arms. Then he pushed Jean down on the bed. With her restrained, he grinned and said, "What do you think?"

The sudden movement scared Jean. She was already on edge considering his flirtatious words. His warm breath sent shivers up and down her spine. All of this stirred Jean's heart.

"That is enough, Mr. Qi!"

Jean tried to speak forcefully with Zed. She knew that Zed was dangerously close to kissing her. With whatever sense still remained, Jean knew she needed to stop him.

However, Zed suddenly laughed out and said sardonically," What were you thinking I was going to do? Are you blushing? Are you embarrassed?"

"I am not.... blushing!"

Despite Jean's protest, Zed knew that she was lying. He knew exactly what kind of effect he had on Jean. But Zed did not expose her lie. He just sat up and then said blandly," Actually, I was going to say that once you don't look pale, I will agree to your request. However, just before you blushed, you still looked pale. As the doctor said, you are too weak. So you need to stay in the hospital to recover."

Weak? Zed had often mentioned to Jean that she hadn't recovered completely. However, given how she was feeling, Jean believed otherwise. So, no matter how many times Zed said that she was weak, Jean remained unconvinced. Thus, Zed needed to try a different approach, one that would convince Jean.

'Wait! Was he trying to show me how weak I am? Is that all this teasing was supposed to accomplish? He wasn't actually going to try and kiss me?

So I was overthinking just now?'
