"Now that Zed asked you to protect me, my asking you back will just make you fall into an embarrassing situation. So I think it is much better for me to accept the fact of your existence willingly," Jean said in a casual tone. After waiting for a moment, she continued," Do you know why I decided to accept you?"

Toby shook his head heavily. Puzzlement crossed all over his face.

"Toby, I don't know your real relationship with Zed. But I want to warn you that you are sent to protect me hence this is my business. You are invading my privacy. So you should know what kind of thing you can report to Zed and what you can't," said Jean with a serious look.

"I don't understand what you are trying to say. What do you mean? Are you saying I shouldn't report things to Mr. Zed?" Toby asked with an honest look of confusion.

"For example, I will go to the Wen Group today which you shouldn't report to Zed. In short, I don't want you to report to Zed unimportant details."

Jean stared at Toby while she ordered.

Toby was immediately taken aback. Seconds later, he came to his senses and said," My duty is just to ensure your safety and it doesn't include gossiping. So if it doesn't threaten your safety, I will not report and interfere."

"Great." A big smile crept onto Jean's face when she heard Toby's words. In truth, she expected him to defy her. Now she looked at him and said," I admire smart people and you are among them. Toby, you also know that the relationship between me and the people from the Wen family is quite terrible. And it is more than dangerous for me to go to the Wen Group. So I am going to keep you by my side because I really need your protection."

Actually, Jean hadn't found the truth about her mother's death. So she didn't want to fall into trouble again and risk her life before finding out the real cause of that tragedy.

Now that Zed had already sent Toby to protect her, she decided to make good use of him.

"I can understand your meaning. So I will try my best to keep you safe," said Toby respectfully.

Jean nodded to show her contentment for his reply. "Then that's our deal. My safety relies on your protection from now on. It is too late now so I am going to my room and have a good rest. There are a lot of spare rooms and you can choose whichever you like to sleep."

As she finished her words, she yawned while walking toward her room.

The look on her face was totally different from the serious look she had worn a couple of seconds ago.

Toby, on the other hand, remained still with puzzlement on his face. He watched Jean walk into her room and then quickly took out his phone to call Zed.

Quickly, he filled Zed in with what Jean had asked him to do. He also told Zed that she said she needed his protection.

After disconnecting the

uietly in her heart, 'The reason grandpa is in a hurry to leave must have something to do with my conflict with Zed.

However, Jesse is to be blamed for all of this.

Now that grandpa is leaving for the Imperial City, it means that Grandpa Dan and Jesse will also leave with him.

So...

Grandpa hopes that I can make up with Zed as soon as possible.

However, grandpa, you don't know that the problem between us is not that simple. Jesse won't give up on Zed so easily and I have no idea of Zed's feeling towards her.'

Jean looked rather upset and sighed heavily inside her heart. "You should tell grandpa that I will come to see him," she replied trying to keep a straight face.

Zed heard Jean's reply and immediately got relieved. He smiled and said," This news is going to make him really happy. He is looking forward to seeing you."

"No, I actually feel responsible. I didn't accompany him to have fun and most of the times the trips were cut short because of me. I feel quite guilty and sorry for that," said Jean as she sighed heavily.

Zed noticed the sadness on her face and couldn't help but comfort her. "Jean, if you don't want grandpa to leave, you can go to persuade him. I believe that he will listen to you."

"Although I feel reluctant to let grandpa leave, why should I go to persuade him? After all, he is not my grandpa," Jean said unpleasantly.

"Jean..." When Zed heard Jean say that his grandpa was not her grandpa, he was immediately infuriated and anger made its way to his face. "My grandpa is also your grandpa. Although you don't want to talk to me now, you have no right to be angry with him because of me..."

"Well, that's not what I mean. You are taking the wrong meaning of my words." Now Jean frowned a little and realized her mistake. "So are you done with your speech?" Jean asked looking straight into Zed's eyes.
