She panicked. Her heart was racing. However, it's proven that men do like this kind of things, just like how it is in TV shows.

With just a little romantic atmosphere, the plan was already half succeeded.

He ignored what Jean said and lifted her up, all the way from the living room to the bedroom. He placed her down gently on the big soft bed.

"Wait for what?"

His breathing was heavy and his gaze at her was full of burning passion.

"When...When are you going to divorce me?"

She was only trying to mimic the TV shows to see if Zed would have any respond. Much to her surprise, he reacted so intensely with such haste.

It worked on Zed, but it should have been Eva, not her!

The burning flames in Zed's eyes were put out almost instantly by her words. His face gloomed. He looked at her coldly," Do you think this is a good time to talk about it? Are you that desperate to leave me?"

Jean nodded rapidly," It's already been decided long ago. We'll divorce once the time is right but you've confiscated my residence booklet and denied the divorce. Further more, the Wen Group is in a total mess, I have no further use for you anymore. Why don't you just keep your promise and divorce me, go back to your life as an eligible bachelor?"

Their marriage was only for business benefits. Since the deal has come to an end, it only makes sense that the marriage should as well. Even more so now that everyone has already gotten their profits respectively. Most importantly, she was afraid that she would become obsessed with him if they stayed together any longer.

It is Zed she is talking about. He's rich and handsome. He was being gentle and considerate too recently, which has made her heart skipped.

"An eligible bachelor? Heh, I believe it's you who is eager to become single again."

He got up suddenly and left the bedroom in rage. The sound of a departed car was heard not long after the door slammed. Zed had left the villa.

Jean was left alone in this huge house. She dazed for a while because she didn't understand why Zed got angry. She felt lost.

"Never mind. At least I found out he likes those kind of romantic ambiance. I have to tell Eva later!"

Comforting herself, Jean walked to the dining room and finished up the steak that she had cooked painstakingly.


Zed drank up three shots the moment he arrived at the club. He showed no signs of intoxication. Having to accompany his father to entertain their clients since a very young age, his body was already used to the huge intake of alcohol. He was already numb at this point, this amount was nothing to him.

"Mr. Qi, bad night?" Zack Xing, the CEO of this club came over and inquired. He proceeded to call the bartender to open his reserved wine.

Zed gave a faint smile when he caught a whiff of the fragrance from the wine. "Zack, you're finally willing to open it?"

"I only opened it because I saw you in such a bad mood. I will take it away if you don't want it."

"Hey, it's already opened. Wouldn't it be such a waste if we don't drink it?"

"I think you're just pretending to be moody so you'll make me serve you the wine."

They were drinking, talking and laughing. They used to be classmates when they studied abroad. After they came back, they each took over their family business. They remained good friends.

"Let me ask you a lame question. Don't laugh at me, alright." Zed hesitated a little but still ended up asking Zack anyway. He wanted to see if Zack could help him with his uncertainty.

After Zack nodded, he continued," Is it possible for you to fall

in love with a woman in a short time?"

After hearing his question, Zack was stunned for a moment, he reached out and patted Zed on the shoulder as he laughed. "What a surprise! Who would have thought someone as ice-cold as you would be touched? Is there any photo of her? I am curious which goddess is capable of melting your heart."

"Look at you!"

Zed frowned. Zack promised not to laugh at him but he did.

"All right. I'll stop teasing you. Look at my place, even though all the girls here are thick in makeup, they are all above average, yet, none of them made you bat an eye. A girl who catches your attention must be really special! As for falling in love with someone in a short time, it is possible. I experienced love at first sight once. Ahem... though I won't bring up the past."

Zed finished half the glass of wine. Zack's answer was useless as his uncertainty remained.

It was already midnight when Zed returned home. He walked into the bedroom reek of alcohol. Looking at the woman who was asleep on the bed, he frowned his brows as he lay down beside her. She turned around to embrace him out of habit.

Next morning, Jean's cellphone won't stop ringing. It woke Zed up, too.

"If it rings again, I will smash it."

In fear of his threat, Jean sat up rubbing her eyes and picked up her phone.

Her father was calling her. She frowned and hung up. He called again. This repeated a few times until she got annoyed. On the fifth time, Jean answered the call angrily.

"What!" She hissed at the phone impatiently.

"Is everything okay? Why are you so angry?" It was not from her father.

She checked the screen of her cellphone immediately and found that it was her classmate, Michelle Li.

"I'm so sorry. I got a prank call just now. What's up?"

She felt a little embarrassed. She could see Zed was glaring at her at the corner of her eyes. She got out of the bed quickly and stepped out to the balcony to resume her talk.

"I heard that you're married to Zed, the CEO of Qi Group. Congratulations! I actually joined the Qi Group not long ago. Since we are classmates, I am wondering if you can put in a few good words about me to Zed so my probation period can be shortened. I understand that it is not appropriate but please understand that I have a family issue at the moment. My dad has a debt. I..."

Michelle's voice choked up with tears.

"Michelle, please don't cry... This is just a business marriage between Zed and me. Besides, we are getting divorced soon. As much as I like to help you..."

"Huh? No way. Then forget it. I will talk to you later."

Beep beep beep...

It took Jean several seconds to realize that the call has ended. She was going to say that she could give it a try and talk to Zed about it but Michelle hung up so fast that she didn't even get the chance to tell her.

Her attitude changed almost instantly the moment she heard about the divorce.

When Jean turned around to head back into the bedroom, Zed was already standing behind her, leaning against the glass door lazily in his cozy pajama.

"Were you eavesdropping?"

He shrugged and threw up his hands," This is my house. I have the right to listen."

Jean was already annoyed by Michelle's treatment. Now she was even more irritated after hearing Zed's statement. She strode past him and deliberately hit him with her shoulder.

All of a sudden, her arm was caught by his hands. He pulled her hard towards him and she fell into his embrace. Jean looked up and stared at him wide eyed," What do you want?"

"Nothing. What about you?" His lips curled to a smirk.
