Seeing Jean start running quickly again, Zed said worriedly, "Jean, Jean! Listen to me... Calm down! Let's not hurry... Okay.. Calm down. Look, I know we can find Hanley sooner if we hurry, but still... what's done is done. Hurrying and rushing can't and won't change anything. Also, you're pregnant now. You can't afford to run like this. You shouldn't put so much strain on yourself." Worry was written over Zed's face.

"I'm sorry, Zed. I always seem to be a burder to you. You know what? I think you should go down to the resort village first and find Hanley without me. That way, you could find him easily and not have to worry so much about me. That would be better. And don't worry about me. I'll ask Moore to take care of me, and he will do it, you know... Trust me. I am going to be okay. You find Hanley and meet me at the resort village, okay?" A little out of breath, Jean was still rushing through her words.

Zed thought for a moment to contradict her but he couldn't think of a better idea, so he consented.

"Okay. But be careful, Jean. And listen, watch the road carefully. It is slippery and going downhill on such a road is even harder than an uphill climb. Don't rush and go back slowly, minding over step, okay?"

Zed ordered her.

"I got it, honey." Jean nodded and tried to comfort him with a warm smile. She reassured, "I promise I will do exactly as you have told me. You go and find Hanley."

"Okay." Zed gazed at her emotionally without saying anything more. A little while later, he reached out his hand and took hers and they walked to the camp together. Reaching there, they found Moore

and Zed exchanged a few words with him before he left.

Jean sighed as she gazed at his retreating back with an endearing look.

"I'm sorry, Jean!" Moore apologized to Jean with a guilty look on his face, "It's all my fault. Calvin's matter is becoming serious because of me."

"No, It's not your fault. You don't have to feel guilty. Don't worry Moore. Zed's not going to let Hanley do whatever he's planning to. Trust him." Jean reassured him as she shook her head, "Let's move and go down the mountain now! I'm really worried about Calvin. I hope Zed will be able to find Hanley as soon as possible and stop him just in time, or he will ruin Calvin's life."

"You are right, Jean." Moore nodded his consent. He had a few words to the porters before he followed Jean onto the path that led back down from the camp.

This time, the path was harder than ever before due to the slippery roads and if you weren't careful, you could have easily fallen down.

Fortunately, with the help of a trekking pole, they made it through successfully.

By the time they reached the resort village,

om behind Jean as he approached.

"I don't trust you, you bastard! You will have the right to inherit the wealth of Bai family as long as dad admits your identity," Hanely replied as he stared at Moore angrily.

"I will never forgive him for anything. Don't brother yourself. Speaking of your fortune, I have no interest in it at all," Moore retaliated.

"Then, why are you back in H city?" Hanley asked with a sniffle. He didn't believe Moore at all and immediately added, "I'm not a child. Stop treating me like a fool."

"I mean what I say and I don't care if you believe it or not," Moore remarked coldly. His face was impenetrable.

"Believe you! Do you think I'm so stupid? I..."

"You are indeed a fool," Jean snapped, "Moore says he intends to abandon the heirdom. Shouldn't you be happy about that? It's all yours now, dumb-o! What make you think he is lying to you? Why do you waste your time in suspecting Moore?"

Jean rained on him with a barrage of questions.

Hanley furrowed his eyebrows in thought as what Jean had just said in his mind registered. 'Right! She was right. At this very moment, what I should be doing is collecting evidence. Why am I so stupid? If I have evidence to show that he is giving up his right, then he doesn't stand a chance any more.'

"Do you really meant it?" Hanley raised his head and asked hesitatingly.

"I will give what you want on the condition that you fix what you have done last night. Or I..."

Moore threatened.

"Well, well! I will do exactly as you say. You will give up the fortune, if I help Calvin overcome the trouble, will you?

Hanley asked, wanting to confirm it once more.

"As you wished. You have 24 hours to handle this," Moore said curtly. Then Moore turned around and left without giving Hanley one more glance.
