"Look at you! Living your best life in H City. Does that mean you don't plan to stay in Imperial Capital for long? Are you really going to go back to H City with Jean, Zed?" Zack asked with concern. "Your Grandpa is planning to let you take over the Sky International, right?"

"It's Uncle Simon who wants me to take over the company," Zed corrected him. "Kirk wants to become a doctor. Our family business isn't part of his plans. Besides I love living in H City. Why would I come back to live in Imperial Capital?"

"I heard that Kirk's fiancee, Elizabeth can be quite vivacious. You really are popular among the women, Zed! Unfortunately for her, you're married! And you're not the kind of person who's going to cheat on your wife, are you?"

Zack teased, beaming.

"Do you think I will? My life is complete with Jean," Zed retorted, a bit angry at Zack.

"That's really admirable, Zed. So many beautiful women come knocking on your door and you don't even so much as blink an eye because you have Jean," Zack praised Zed.

It was difficult to tell what exactly he was admiring—whether it was for Zed and Jean's love, or Zed's loyalty to Jean, or both.

Zed didn't notice the shift on Zack's face. He snidely commented, "If you have time to dig through my personal life, why don't you focus your energy on trying to figure out the kidnapping? You know... find out who was involved and what their purpose was, perhaps?"

"Well, it's much easier to focus on your personal life than find out who was involved in the kidnapping. If I wanted to find out something about you, I can always ask Jade," Zack said with a sly smile. "On the other hand, if we want to find out more about the kidnapping, we would have to dig a lot deeper. It's been days since it happened, and trying to piece together everything won't be easy."

"I see. So it was why you went out with Jade? To ask about my personal life?" Zed teased. "Why didn't you just ask me yourself?"

"And why shouldn't I ask Jade? I mean, Jade's wiser than you, isn't she? She is older and more experienced than you are," Zack explained. "And, on top of that, do you think it's a good idea that we talk about Elizabeth's crush on you in front of Jean? I didn't want to put Jean in that situation."

"Wait, wait..." Zack interjected, shaking his head in confusion. "You said you went out looking for her. What do you mean by that? Jean's father gave her to you as a gift in exchange for a piece of land, right? He sent her daughter to sleep with you, didn't he?"

"I've met her five years prior to that. Do you think I went to H City for you? No, I went there for her," Zed said with a smirk on his face.

"I'm confused. You knew her even before?" asked Zack, getting even more confused, and turned to look at Zed.

Zed beamed as he saw the curiosity on Zack's face.

'Except Jean and some of the old pals, no one else knows the whole story, ' Zed thought to himself.

And so, Zed told Zack what had happened between Jean and him. He told him he met Jean when he got injured and he was moved by Jean's kindness. After that, he had been looking for her for five years, until, finally, he found her.

On hearing Zed's explanation, Zack was stunned. Seeing his shocked look, Zed teased, beaming, "What's on your mind now? Don't you think I would look for a girl for five years? Or you've been moved by my love to her, haven't you?"

"No, no, not exactly. I was shocked by what happened between you two. I thought Jean was just a gift from Henry. At that moment, I just felt a bit weird that you accepted Jean that Henry forced you to take and didn't fight back. It was totally not you. I never thought that the whole story would turn out so... different,"

sighing, Zack shook his head in disbelief.
