"I've already told Yanni that. But she told me that ever since Kenneth passed away, she couldn't help but reject every other man that came into her life. That's why I want to be there for her to encourage her," said Zed.

"Oh, I see," Jean said with a smile. "If that's the case, I don't see how it would be a problem if I tagged along. Just so that you won't feel embarrassed."

Upon hearing Jean's words, Zed fell silent.

He turned around to look at Jean intently. Finally, he gave a resigned sigh. "You still don't trust her, do you?"

"No, it's not that," she assured, giving a small pout. "I am really worried that you would be embarrassed," she said. "Don't you think it's better if I go with you? Besides, I'm curious about the man Yanni's allegedly dating. Zed, please... I want to go with you. If I stay here all by myself, all there's left for me to do is watch boring soap operas."

As Jean said this, she put on her most pitiful expression, her eyes big and twinkling like a begging puppy.

Zed couldn't help but sigh.

'It's odd that Jean is this flirty towards me. On top of that, she's so determined to get her way.

I know for a fact that Jean has no interest on Yanni's personal life. She just wants to tag along because she doesn't trust Yanni... or in me for that matter.

What else can I say for her to believe me?

Does she really have to see it with her own eyes?'

As the silence between them prolonged, Jean looked at him helplessly. Because of this, Zed couldn't help but finally give nod.

'Yanni and I are just friends.

If Jean doesn't believe me, is it really such a big deal to let Jean come along with me?

After all, she is my wife. It's the right thing to do—that we meet Yanni's boyfriend together.'

Zed's hesitation made Jean feel upset.

But she still forced a smile, pretending to be happy.

'Zed, don't you love me? Why did you feel uncomfortable when I asked to come with you?

Did you really have to think about it that long?

Although you agreed to it, you have no idea how sad I felt when you had to really think it through.

Everyone knows that you treat me so well.

I've always thought so, too.

On the other hand, when other people from your past come into the picture, you always hesi

tention of leaving, Yanni started to feel uncomfortable once again.

'Did Zed tell Jean that we're going to meet with Wesley today?'

Is that why she got up early, so she could stop Zed from accompanying me?'

Thinking of this possibility, Yanni couldn't help but narrow her eyes with concern.

'If my guess is right, this is bad.

No, I have to find a way to make Jean do something else, and then I can leave with Zed alone.

But I feel like Jean's on to me. What can I do to stop her from interfering?'

With a frown, she played around with the leftover eggs on her plate.

All the while, Jean had been paying close attention to Yanni. She understood what Yanni was thinking as she saw the expression on her face.

'She must have guessed what I'm up to and is coming up of a plan to deal with me!

It doesn't matter. I've expected this, and I'm already one step ahead.'

Jean looked at Yanni and said slowly with a bright smile, "Yanni, Zed told me that you came to China to meet your boyfriend. It seems that we have misunderstood each other before. You made such a joke the other day, but it's a pity that I'm not that good at playing jokes. I can only assume this is why we didn't get along so well at first. Because of our... misunderstanding. I have to apologize to you. I'm Zed's wife and you are Zed's friend. I am so sorry that I haven't entertained you well."

Upon hearing this, Zed looked at Jean. He finally understood why Jean didn't want him to tell Yanni about her plans beforehand.
