'What Sara did was truly terrible. She ganged up with her lover just so that she could clean up from Sky International.

But she's already cashed in a lot over the years. Isn't she satisfied yet?

Was it because of Simon's illness? Did she want to rake in more money one last time before he died?'

The more Jean thought about it, the sadder she felt.

If her guess was right, the situation was truly horrible on Simon's part.

For his whole life, Simon had worked his heart and soul in order to maintain the family's reputation. He tried his best to provide a complete family for Kirk and keep Benjamin happy. However, how was this going to end for him?

Not only was he going to die so soon—he was getting cheated by his wife!

"You know what? I never believe in destiny," Zed started. "If God really takes good care of kindhearted people, he will not let Uncle Simon die at such an early age. Sara's the one who needs to be punished—not Uncle Simon."

There was a tone of indignation in Zed's voice.

Jean processed Zed's words and couldn't agree more with him. She also thought Sara should pay for all the bad things she had done.

Unfortunately for Simon, it seemed as if fate wasn't on his side.

Like the old saying goes, 'Kind people die young, but bad things live forever.'

Heaving a long sigh, Jean looked at Zed.

"Uncle Simon knows the reason why you've come back, doesn't he?" she asked.

"Yes," Zed said as he nodded his head, the corners of his mouth turning down into a frown. "Grandpa Benjamin is hiding the fact that Sara has placed her own trusted followers in the company. Originally, Uncle Simon thinks I'm the best candidate to inherit Sky International. But neither Uncle Simon nor granda knows that I'm not interested in the inheritance."

As for the inheritance, Zed had already told Jean his opinion.

Moreover, he was aware that Jean still wanted to return to H City, so all the more reason for him to say no.

However, for Jean, it was a relief for her to hear Zed say it again in person.

Wrapping her arms around Zed, Jean couldn't help but let out a sigh. "You won't take it against me that I drove you away from a large amount of fortune, will you?" she asked.

"Of course not," Zed answered, solemn and intense. "I make money by myself. You know I don't like unearned money. If grandpa hadn't analyzed the status of Sky International and Uncle Simon's illness, I wouldn't


Jean was often stunned by grandpa's aura of dignity and authority.

Anyone who knew him, even for a short time, could imagine how marvelous he had been during his prime.

If he made any enemies, rest assured that those people would no longer be able to make a living anymore.

Sara definitely knew grandpa's power, so she maintained a peaceful marriage with Uncle Simon. It was convincing enough to make it look harmonious in front of Grandpa Benjamin.

"Ok, let's stop talking about it," Zed consoled as he saw Jean's troubled expression. "Your primary task is to have fun and have a good rest. You need to take good care of yourself and our baby. We were all frightened when you disappeared."

Remorse suddenly replaced the previous expression on Jean's face. "Zed, how did you find me?" she asked.

She had planned to ask him the question yesterday, but she had thought to save it for a different time when she saw how tired he was.

Now was the best time to ask him with no one around, she thought.

"It took me a few minutes to realize that you've been kidnapped," Zed said with a sigh. "Although I cordoned off the area, I couldn't find any clues. Things didn't turn around until 2 hours later. I detected an unusual fragrance in the dressing room which made me believe firmly that you were drugged and then taken away."

After that, Zed frowned deeply.

"Yeah, that's right. The moment I opened the dressing room, I smelled something weird. I had no idea what happened after that. When I woke up, I found myself in the warehouse,"

Jean said with a wry smile as she looked up at Zed.
