"Mrs. Jean," Toby said urgently.

"Don't call me Mrs. Jean when we're outside. We have to be discreet," Jean said. "Just call me Jean."

"I'm sorry I can't do that," Tony disagreed.

"Why? You're supposed to do as I say, didn't Zed tell you that?" Jean said, purposely raising her voice a bit.

Tony nodded his head helplessly, "Fine."

Jean was relieved to hear Toby finally give in. She asked him, "Did Zed tell you what kind of people we should look out for?"

"Anyone who harms you, Mrs. Jean,"

Tony said without hesitation.

Jean frowned when Tony still referred to her as Mrs. Jean. "Toby..."

Toby cast a glance at Jean, feeling a little embarrassed. He stammered, "J... Jean..."

Jean smoothened her face when she heard this. "Which people? Can you name one?"

Toby looked at Jean, a complicated look pasted on his face. When he spoke, his voice was soft, "Elizabeth."

Jean wasn't surprised at all. She leaned towards him. "Aren't you wondering why Zed's asking you to keep an eye on Elizabeth?"

Toby shook his head as he looked at Jean from the rearview mirror.

Jean heaved a sigh.

She wanted to find out what Zed told Toby.

But it was impossible. What Zed did was simply tell them what to do. He never gave an explanation.

Even then, Toby never questioned Zed—he just merely followed his orders.

"Do you want to know why?" Jean asked.

Toby opened his mouth then closed it again. Finally, he shook his head.

'This isn't funny anymore! If Toby doesn't cooperate with me, I won't be able to do anything, ' Jean complained to herself.

She frowned and glared at Toby as he drove the car.

Toby could tell that Jean was unhappy so he broke the silence. "Actually, Mrs. Jean, even if you and Mr. Zed don't tell me, I still know why."

"Really? You know why?" Jean was so excited that she decided to let the Mrs. Jean thing go.

"Yes. Ever since Elizabeth arrived, the family's been a mess which stressed out Mr. Zed," Tony observed.

"How can you tell that Zed was stressed? If you give me a good answer, you can just call me Mrs. Jean

you,"

Jean switched her face to a happy one as she turned to Kirk to greet him.

Elizabeth glared at Jean.

She thought Jean was just a tiny, frail girl—not too smart, making her easy to handle.

She never expected that Jean would be on to her so soon and even threatening her.

'Damn it!

The only reason I chose to marry Kirk is so I can see Zed everyday. If Kirk leaves me, I won't be able to see Zed anymore.

Screw it! So what if she knows my plan?

I just need to find a way to convince the Qi family that they need me to stay, ' Elizabeth though to herself.

She broke into a wry smile.

'If I don't marry Kirk, it'll be Simon to be affected and it'll wreck the entire family.

So even if they find out that I really don't love Kirk, they'll have no choice because they have to preserve their image and public reputation. They can't be humiliated like that.

Jean knows but what can she do?

As long as the rest of the family accept me, I can do what I want, ' Elizabeth thought.

"Come on. Let's go inside." Kirk stopped in front of them, and smiled at Elizabeth.

Elizabeth eyed Jean as she looped her arm into Kirk's and followed him inside.

"Welcome,"

a girl greeted them with a huge smile and bowing at once.

Jean felt uneasy as she stared Elizabeth down.

"Mrs. Jean," Toby called.

"Let's go!" Jean said to him, snapping out of her trance.
