"Because I don't have money," Caleb answered promptly as he gazed at Jean. "Do you think everyone was born with wealth and luck like you?" he continued. "How can someone like you ever imagine how hard we work just to have rice on our plates day in and day out? You don't know how many hardships we had to go through just to get power and respect. Those two things come very naturally for someone like you. We've often been bullied, humiliated, tortured and exploited. No one cares about us. No one..."

Caleb's voice quivered at the end, his tone thick with emotion.

"Frankly speaking," Jean started, "I don't think your experience deserves others' sympathy. If poverty is the reason why you commit crime, how do you ever expect to make things right? The poorer you are, the more crimes you commit—it's an endless circle that won't take you out of the dark. If you think society and the rich owe you, you will never get the respect that you want. It's a tough but fair world. No pain, no gain. If you want money and respect, you have to earn it with hard work and kindness.

Earning without doing any work is just the makings of a fool. It's not true that people like me were born with wealth. You have no idea what I've gone through—the hardships and humiliation I've suffered are just as many as you have had. For God's sake, I know you're a good guy. I want to help.

Stop doing wrong! Persuade your pals to stop now, and nothing else more terrible would happen. You have my word that you'll leave the city alive. Otherwise... Well, I think you're smart enough to foresee the consequences. You're smarter than they are. I can say that you've already gotten to know who I am. If not, you wouldn't save me at the cost of being misunderstood. Am I right?"

Upon hearing this, Caleb looked at Jean in amazement, for he didn't realize she could see through with great insight. It hurt him when he saw Jean smiling at him at that moment.

He stared at Jean in disbelief. "You would let us go... despite the fact that we've kidnapped you? That Cliff did horrible things to you?"

Caleb asked, doubting whether or not he misheard.

Meanwhile, Zed decided to dismiss th

e was pressing and she wasn't sure when the others would come in, so she had to ask the most important questions first.

"What we said before is true. The employer showed us a photo of yours. There was a large amount of money offered so long as we kidnapped you,"

Caleb said with a wry smile.

"That's all? Do you know who the employer is?" Jean was a little disappointed, but she continued, "Don't tell me you don't know the employer, because I can tell that you're their backbone and the strategist. Any plan they've made must get your permission..."

Smiling wryly at her, Caleb heaved a sigh of powerlessness and said, "I swear to God, I really don't know the employer, because Cody didn't ask me to participate in the plan."

"It seems that you don't want to cooperate with me..."

Jean pressed.

She had thought highly of Caleb, but she didn't expect that he refused to tell the truth.

"I'm telling you everything I know," Caleb said carefully as he looked at Jean. "I did take part all the actions and planning. But everything has changed since 3 months ago. Someone who is much powerful wanted me to leave Cody and join him, but I refused. However, they began to push me away since then.

If Cody had listened to me, I would have never let the kidnapping happen. But everything is beyond retrieval. I should have stopped Cody. I'm the one who sent my buddies to their deathbeds..."

Caleb couldn't help blaming himself.
