"Yeah, I noticed too," Zed nodded his head. "Maybe she already had a feeling that we'd be suspicious of her, so she's trying to be nice to you to clear her name."

"It was a 360 degree turn, Zed. Didn't she think that we'd just notice that more?" Jean furrowed a brow and asked. "She doesn't have to go out of her way just to be nice to me if she's really innocent. To be honest, I'm not used to her being so nice to me."

Jean was rubbing the hand that Jesse had just held as she spoke.

Zed couldn't help but sigh.

He thought that Jesse being nice to Jean would cheer her up but much to his dismay, it made her even more uncomfortable.

"Jean, I don't know how better to say this. When you disappeared last night, both Kirk and Jesse were very worried about you. They went out looking for you till dawn. When we found out where you were, they both wanted to come with me but I didn't let them. I told them to go home to rest. I think they really do sincerely care for you,"

Zed sighed as he glanced at Jean.

Jean looked up at him. When she saw the strange expression on Zed's face, she couldn't help laughing. "Zed, I know you're trying to defend Jesse. I understand. You know why I'm iffy about her. So don't bother trying to change my mind about her. I don't think I'll ever be friends with the woman who's in love with my husband."

Zed was at a loss for words.

He and Jean had just fixed things. He didn't want to start another fight, more so that it was about Jesse.

At that moment, Jade was just coming in. The minute she stepped inside the room she felt the tension between Jean and Zed. She smiled, "Time for dinner. Everyone's waiting."

"Mom," Jean greeted her and walked towards her, "I know you were worried last night."

"Not just me. We all were. Your grandfather, father, and uncle Simon too. We all couldn't sleep well. We didn't leave the night market until we were sure where

don't have to worry about it. I'll take care of it." Zed was looking into Jean's eyes as he walked up to them.

"Zed, it's not that I don't trust you. It's just that it's been so many years since you left. Imperial Capital has changed a lot," Benjamin replied. Then he looked at Zed and sighed, "This time, I am the one who has gotten you into this mess. So I should also be the one to clean it up."

'What? It's grandpa's fault?' Jean thought.

Jean and Zed exchanged glances—they had new information from Benjamin.

Benjamin caught the exchange so he politely asked the other people in the room to give them three some privacy. When everyone had left, he spoke slowly, "Well, I'm pretty sure they kidnapped Jean because of me."

Zed had a sour expression on his face.

"I hated evil people with passion in the past. I angered a lot of people and made a lot of enemies. Zed is barely here and the moment you arrived, Jean got kidnapped? It only makes sense that it's because of me."

Grandpa sighed.

Zed and Jean finally understood what grandpa meant.

But then again Benjamin was just guessing.

Benjamin asking for some privacy made Zed and Jean consider that maybe he really did have evidence.

Jean thought to herself, 'Maybe he's just feeling guilty.'
