When Jean spoke, Zed realized that he had to control himself if he didn't want to make a scene. His brows were furrowed as he said angrily, "But she was so rude to you. I can't just let that go. I already figured that something happened when you told me you weren't coming with them anymore tomorrow. But I never would've expected that Elizabeth would treat you like that in front of Kirk! Kirk didn't even defend you..."

Zed said this with a sad look on his face.

"Alright, alright, just calm down, Zed. Do you think I'm the type of person to let other people just look down on me and bully me and do nothing about it? If that's true, then how could I be your wife? I've told you before, Zed. No matter what she does, I'll just play along and see how far she can really go. Don't you trust me? Mrs. Qi isn't a pushover!"

Jean said, trying to comfort Zed.

This was Jean's way of calming Zed down, telling him that she had a plan.

Zed stared blankly for a moment before finally understanding what Jean was saying. Zed thought, 'Maybe that's why Kirk and Elizabeth were acting so strangely when they saw me. It wasn't obvious but it also wasn't normal.

That must've been why.

Jean only took so much of Elizabeth's rudeness out of respect for Kirk. Because if not, Jean would have surely fought back.

Obviously, Elizabeth didn't get her way today.

No wonder Elizabeth was so quiet when she saw me today.

I was so caught up worrying about Jean that I barely thought about how strange Elizabeth was acting.

Jean or Kirk must have told her off. I hope she learns her lesson.'

Zed smiled out of relief. "What on earth happened this afternoon?"

Zed asked curiously.

"Well, Elizabeth wasn't bold enough to show her true colors in front of Kirk but she did use Toby. Before we left for the wedding photo gallery, she already embarrassed Toby but I didn't want to make a scene and make Kirk uncomfortable so I let it go. But when she did it again, that was when I grabbed my chance.

I mean, Toby works for you. I couldn't let him be treated by Elizabeth like that. I was so done by that time but before I could say anything, Kirk beat me to it..."

"It was Kirk..." Zed blurted out, shock written all over his face.

"Yes, it was Kirk. Very interesting, right? It was the first time that I saw Kirk get mad at Elizabeth. You know w

n hour had passed by, they decided to go back to their room.

Zed decided to step in the shower first. When he had finished, he found Jean laying on the bed looking absolutely tired and sleepy.

"Jean, if you want to sleep, you can sleep," Zed said gently when he saw Jean trying to fight the drowsiness.

"No, I can't fall asleep now. If I do, I'll wake up around midnight and I won't be able to sleep again," Jean explained as she tried to get out of bed. She went inside the bathroom with her bathrobe thrown over her shoulder, yawning.

Zed shook his head with a resigned look on his face as he watched her figure retreat inside the bathroom.

Zed thought to himself, 'This is the last time that Jean will be accompanying Elizabeth and Kirk. She's pregnant so it's difficult for her to move around and she can get tired very easily. If Jean hadn't refused them, I would've done it.'

Zed felt helpless as he thought of how exhausted Jean looked.

When Jean finished showering, she stepped out with her hair still dripping wet.

Zed got up and walked towards Jean right away.

He picked up a dry towel and helped her dry her hair out.

The warm shower helped fight Jean's drowsiness.

"What did you do this afternoon, Zed? You haven't told me yet," Jean suddenly said, sounding concerned.

Zed replied, beaming, "I went to talk with Grandpa after you left, darling. After that, I visited Sky International with Gregory and Terry."

Jean was surprised. "You went to Sky International today? Are you finally going to take over Sky International?"
