"Nothing happened. Zed came to take me last night, so I didn't return to the hospital. Sorry, Maranda!" Jean didn't want to continue talking about last night. And so, she ended the conversation by apologizing to Maranda.

"I think you owe John an apology instead of me, don't you?" Maranda blinked her big eyes at Jean and continued, "You disappeared with Mr. Qi last night, and you didn't even think about giving us a call. John and I were worried about you the whole night. Go find him and apologize! After all, we work together and we cannot afford to have misunderstandings between us. It's better to straighten it out."

Maranda tried to persuade Jean.

Jean knew that Maranda was right. She shouldn't have yelled at John and accused him the way that she did. She hadn't even given him a chance to explain! Jean stood up slowly and made her way to John's office.

Jean knocked on the door. After she heard a familiar voice say, "Come in, " Jean took a deep breath before she opened the door.

John was sitting in front of his computer. He was so busy typing that he didn't look up.

Jean summoned all her courage as she walked toward John. Then she spoke sincerely, "I'm sorry, John. I misunderstood you and said some awful things. Please accept my apology."

Jean then bowed to John.

As she raised her head, Jean noticed that John was still looking at his computer screen. John was more concerned about his work, which made Jean feel sad. She bit her lower lip as she continued to look at John.

When she received no reply, Jean prompted again, "John, can you forgive me?" Guilt overwhelmed Jean. She didn't know what else she could do to make up for her inappropriate behavior with John.

Although Jean didn't know John well, she hadn't thought of him as heartless. The few times they had traveled together and met during breaks, she had noticed that although distant, John was caring enough.

After hearing what Jean said, John sighed. He looked up from his computer screen and said, "You don't have to apologize, okay? Don't take all these things so seriously. Forget about it."

"Maranda told me that you were worried about my safety last night." Jean continued as she bit her lower lip, "John, why didn't you explain it to me?"

"There was no need." John said curtly as he looked at her.

Jean realized that John was reluctant to continue the conversation. She decided to change the topic.

"I overheard Sonny saying that the Lei Group invested in our company. Are they one of our important shareholders? Since Ethan is missing, will they really decide to pull the plug?" Jean had been really worried about this. And so she asked the one question that had been troubling her the most.

"It is highly possible! You should know more about E

the car swerved. Gravel flew and bounced off the windows as Zed navigated the car off-road.

Jean closed her eyes and held her breath in fear. Once the car came to an abrupt halt, Jean felt as though she couldn't breathe.

Automobiles whirred past, but Jean stared out the windscreen as she tried to calm herself.

Jean had known that Zed would be furious when she asked about Ethan. But she hadn't expected such an extreme reaction. She tried to keep a calm expression as she turned to face Zed. Her breath hitched when Jean realized that Zed was already staring at her.

"What are you implying?" Zed asked coldly with a frown.

"All this happened because of me. I have the right to know what you did to Ethan." Jean said fearlessly.

"Fine. If I tell you, then what will you do? Will you tell his family or the police where he is and have him rescued?" Zed asked. Although Zed knew that Jean had feelings for him, there had always been a doubt about whether she loved Zed more than Ethan. Zed had been there to save Jean when Ethan had tried to hurt her the night before. Earlier today, Jean had denied being concerned about Ethan. But the way she was questioning him and her attitude, unsettled Zed.

"Zed, you have never trusted me." Jean shook her head in disbelief. No matter how many times she tried to convince Zed that she loved him and that she would support him, he never seemed to believe her. And every time they fought, it was because of Ethan. "I'm your wife and you are my husband. And yet you won't give me any credit, " Jean said morosely. "You took Ethan away because of me. If I tell the Lei family or the police about this, you will suffer. Tell me, why would I do that? Do you think that I want you to suffer?" Jean turned to stare at Zed as she continued, "Why would I take Ethan's side and help him to hurt you?"
