Seeing Moore's face full of anxiety, Jean felt sorry.

Still, the secret was solely hers. She couldn't tell him how she was almost strangled by Joy in the hospital. That day, Joy had thought that Jean would certainly die. The anger she had stoked in her still glowered inside. Jean was on a mission now. She now knew that there was a hidden reason behind her mother's death and she was determined to find out.

Obviously, Joy was her enemy and had every intention to murder her. If Jean returned to the Wen Group, it was certain that Joy would harm her.

Looking into the distance, Jean swallowed these hard truths. Despite knowing the risk involved and the danger she was putting herself in, there was only one question on Jean's mind. 'Why did my mother die?'

It wouldn't do to involve others in her quest, which is why she thought it is best to keep this to herself.

She couldn't even tell Zed or Moore.

But Jean inadvertently blurted out this matter just now.

Now, she was worried that she had compromised Moore's safety too. After all, they spent a lot of time together.

"No, don't worry. I'm just joking." A sunny smile played on Jean's lips though worries clouded her heart. She emphatically said,"It's because you were so cold to me. I just said this to make you worry about me. That's all."

"Jean… Do not lie to me…" Moore stared at Jean, saying words full of concern and fear with an ashen face.

"I will not lie to you. I promise. You know that I have reconciled with Zed then how could I be in danger? He will protect me. Rather, he will protect me very well," As Jean made her case to allay the worst of Moore's fears, her delicate features broke into a smile.

Though she cheered up and looked all sunny and bright, Moore did not know why he still felt uneasy in his heart.

Now that Jean looked all gay, Moore had to stop asking more about it.

She had a point. Zed was her husband and would no doubt protect the beautiful Jean.

Moore's tense body let go of the worries and relaxed as he looked into his friend's warm face. In his last bid to convince her, he said with seriousness,"Jean, never do anything stupid. Since you have made up your mind to return to the Wen Group, promise me, you'll protect yourself well."

"Hmm," Nodding to him, Jean looked at Moore intently.

'I will definitely protect myself well to find out the

an said words that filled her heart with pride.

"Okay, alright. You always talk about having dinner. It makes me feel as if I'm the bad guy when I don't agree." Moore sported a toothy grin at her.

"Really? So we will go eat?" Incredulous at Moore having accepted her invitation after much persuasion, she immediately replied with happiness,"Now, I better select a good place. What would you like to eat? Do you like spicy food? Or what about that's high on acidic? Umm…or should we go for sweet food?"

Bombarded by her flurry of questions, Moore laughed. He shook his head and said,"It is quite simple. Pick what you like. I have no preferences or favourites. It all depends on you."

"Oh my…do you get satisfied this easily?" Jean cast a doubtful glance at him. She giggled at his simplicity and shook her head. "That is good then. I get to decide by myself," she said.

Taking out her smartphone from her pocket, Jean began browsing the many options available.

"What are you searching for?" Moore asked with a puzzled face.

"I am looking for the top recommendations in the H City. We can go to a restaurant that has been recommended by the majority," Jean replied, with her eyes fixed on the mobile phone.

"You showed so much generosity today. I thought you would take me out to a five-star restaurant or one of the most famous restaurants in the H City," Moore smirked at her.

"The food in such places are delicious but expensive. As for many local snacks, they are both delicious and affordable," Jean looked for long at Moore before explaining her mind.
