"You..."

Jean was boiling with rage, but she had no way to release it. She finally accepted that Zed's tactics had hurt her pride.

Before she could say anything to Zed, the night nurse appeared. Jean hadn't realized that it was time for her medicines. Unwilling to make a scene in front of strangers, Jean tempered her anger and frustration. Zed was lucky that the nurse had picked this very moment to arrive. Had it not been for this interruption, Jean would have grabbed the cup on the bedside table and hurled it at Zed.

"Mrs. Qi, it's time for you to take your pills!"

Jean spared one last glare at Zed before pretending as though nothing had happened between them.

The interesting thing was that the nurse was obsessed with the handsome Zed. Every time she made a round of the wards, she would try to find a reason to stay in Jean's room. In doing so, the nurse would have the opportunity to appreciate Zed's beautiful face at the pretext of inquiring after Jean's health. It was also obvious that the nurse was envious of Jean. Just before stepping out the door, the nurse would say something sarcastic to Jean.

"Mrs. Qi, you have a lovely husband! You two look so sweet together." The nurse plastered a fake smile on her face before speaking with Jean. Then she stretched her hand forward. She held a paper cup full of pills prescribed by the doctor.

"Sweet?" Jean was a little surprised by the nurse's compliment. She shook her head as she picked up the little paper cup. Then she raised her head before putting all the pills into her mouth.

The nurse handed a glass of water to Jean and then added with smile, "Yes. Everyone at the hospital has seen how your husband dotes on you and they all wish they were you. We envy you so much. Your husband is so good to you. How we wish to be as lucky as you to have a husband like yours!"

Jean didn't react to the nurse's statements. All this feigned flattery and compliments by the nurse left Jean feeling embarrassed. To hide her feelings, Jean managed to squeeze a smile. However, the smile was too stiff to fool anyone.

"The whole time that you have been at the hospital, we have witnessed how your husband has stayed by your side. He has looked after you and brought you meals. This is a very rare scene in our hospital. Plus, he is so young and capable. He is handsome and brilliant as well. There is no reason for us not to admire him. Don't you think so?" The nurse continued without noticing that Jean was uncomfortable with this conversation.

As a result, Jean became even more flustered.

Jean tried to think of a response, but she failed. After all, nothing the nurse had to say was about Jean. This was simply an opportunity to indirectly praise Zed. Jean was clear about the nurse's intentions. The nurse was actually using her compliments to satirize Jean. She ostensibly appreciated Jean's luck, however, her actual meaning was that Jean was not deserving of Zed.

Their match was a mistake by the Lord. It was the kind of affair that could only happen in fairy tales.

As Jean assumed what the nurse was thinking, she sighed to herself.

'You like him so much, don't you? Then you can have him!'

Jean spared Zed a sidelong glance. To her disappointment, Zed wa

eplied to his mother.

"Cautious about what? Don't talk about the future. If you cannot handle this situation well for your father, I am not sure whether he will allow you back home in the future, do you understand?"

"Yes!"

"Okay, then find yourself a hotel and settle down. Remember, leave me a message to let me know that you are safe."

"Okay..."

However, after ending the call, Winner was in quite a good mood. He was happy as one of his problems had been addressed. The girl he had impregnated would never bother him again. Compared to the threats from the girl's family, Jean was much easier to deal with.

'Apologizing is nothing to me. Only those who can drain the cup of humiliation are real men. I am a real man!'

Winner consoled himself. Meanwhile, he found the number of his family's private driver and then called him. After a while, the driver arrived. Winner then got into the car and instructed the driver to head to the best hotel.

...

Jean looked out the window. The tree that grew in front of her window obscured most of the sky. However, she saw a waning moon that was barely lighting up the night sky.

Another day had ended. And yet, Zed stayed and looked after Jean. Ever since Jean had been brought to the hospital, Zed had remained by her side. He hadn't left.

While Jean found that she wasn't drowsy, Zed had fallen asleep on the sofa. Whether it was because of his work or his efforts to take care of Jean, Zed was exhausted.

Since the sofa was opposite to Jean's bed, she had a clear view of Zed.

Lying in bed, Jean cupped her chin with her hands and focused her gaze on Zed.

This man... Though asleep, he was still charismatic and graceful. He was seated upright on the sofa with his head tilted sideways. He had placed a small cushion to prevent his head from rolling around while he slept. His eyes were closed and he wasn't frowning.

Beside him lay a heap of papers on which he had been working.

How scrupulous he was!

Before napping, Zed had made the effort to arrange his papers properly!

Such a scene made Jean feel a sense of adoration. She reached out and grazed Zed's lips with her fingers.
