'Wow, it is so ridiculous that Toby is willing to tell me such stupid lies to cover up for Zed. I have to give in to Zed for having such loyal employees.'

Jean wondered and rolled her eyes, looking at Toby and not bothering to hide her disdain.

Seeing the look on Jean's face, Toby's eyes widened and immediately read what she was thinking. "Mrs. Jean, what I just told you isn't a lie." With a bitter smile, he spoke once more, trying to convince Jean. "Believe or not, I am telling the truth."

Jean narrowed her eyes at Toby. She crossed her arms on her chest and said," How could you know such private information about Zed? It is impossible, you see. I don't even know about those things, so tell me again, can you still say that you are not lying?" She sneered at him, rolling her eyes once more.

"Mrs. Jean…" Unable to find his words, Toby paused and gave Jean a weak and bitter smile. After a long while, before Jean could turn and walk away impatiently, he explained," There are some confidential information that I shouldn't have told you about, but seeing that Mr. Zed has been misunderstood, I don't think I have any other choice but to tell you. Needless to say, even though I am not excellent in my job, Mr. Zed has been treating me well ever since I met him, so I try my very best to return his generosity by being loyal and helping him more than I should in every possible way that I can. In the past, I have to stay close to him to protect him without leaving."

Jean couldn't help but suddenly feel a hint of sorrow in his voice.

'He's not happy about Zed for sending him to protect me, right?' she thought, trying to put the pieces together.

She instantly looked at Toby, still narrowing her eyes towards him. She contemplated the si

she wanted him to do. All he knew was that he had asked her information, and now that he had given, he regretted again about speaking more than he should.

"What are you waiting for? Come in!" Jean interrupted Toby's train of thoughts, waving him over.

"Mrs. Jean, please enter first, and I will follow behind you." He replied hastily and gestured his hand towards the door, not wanting to make her temper even worse.

Jean looked at him and without a word, she entered the house and walked straight to the living room. She sat on the sofa, taking comfort after a tiring walk, and said,"Toby, come. We're not done talking yet."

He quickly moved towards her and stood in front of her with respect.

Jean rolled her eyes and sighed. She couldn't help but frown at how stiff a wood Toby was. She gestured the sofa across her and said,"You don't have to be so formal in front of me. Sit down, and please, relax. I'm not going to bite you."

"Rules cannot be broken," he said firmly and stayed on his spot without any intention to move. Before she could insist any further, he looked at Jean seriously and asked,"What would you like to talk with me about, Mrs. Jean?"
