Rufus's face remained emotionless even after the maid had told him all the details.

Was Jill merely behaving this way because she thought of Horace as a grumpy, old, arrogant man? It couldn't be denied, though, that Horace's health had deteriorated day after day—he was getting old and therefore, grumpy and arrogant as many men had come to be.

Rufus had no other thought in his mind but to make sure he executed his plan right away. Horace was, after all, old enough now—he might die before experiencing what it was like to be betrayed by his own son and at the same time, lose his own company. Horace deserved no less after all he'd done to Rufus and his mother. He did not deserve to die a peaceful death.

Meanwhile, in the ward, Jill still hadn't stopped sobbing and Lionel was starting to become impatient. He kept bugging the nurse, asking what time his father was going to wake up. In fact, he did it so much that the nurse had started to avoid him.

Rufus waited outside the ward the whole night. Before dawn, Horace finally woke up.

"Horace, Horace, how are you feeling now?"

Jill rushed towards Horace the moment he opened his eyes.

Rufus was also wide awake and alert outside the ward—he was calm and so sure of what he was going to do.

The doctor came in to check all of Horace's vitals and was seemingly satisfied. He spoke in a cool tone, "Everything looks good here. He doesn't need as many people to stay with him—one is enough. The rest of you can go home and rest. Mr. Tang needs quiet too."

The ward was so crowded that the doctor advised them to leave in order to give Horace some peace and quiet.

Rufus scanned the room with his eyes before he offered to stay, "I will stay here and look after him. You can all go home first and come relieve me later."

Rufus's tone was calm and somewhat matter-of-fact. Jill glanced at him from the side and murmured, "Such a hypocrite," before yawning and leaving the room with Ivy.

"Father, I have to go and attend to a few appointments. I'll be right back after I'm done,"

Lionel said as a goodbye to his father. When he left, only Rufus and Horace were in the room.

Although he had already woken up from his coma, Horace still looked pallid and weak.

He tilted his head as he looked at Rufus with a confused look on his face, as if his mind was buzzing about something.

Rufus didn't make a sound, instead he just gazed blankly back at his father.

"Rufus, I had a dream. I dreamt of your mother,"

Horace said in a weak but yearning tone.

"She stopped talking to me. I'd lost all contact with her for years. I had no other way to find out you were my son," he continued.

Horace pressed his eye lids together as if he was deep in thought.

Rufus remained silent and stoic but inside, he was raging.

After a while, Horace fell back into a deep sleep. Rufus took this chance to

r not. I didn't even get much sleep last night because I was up late worrying about them. I have no choice but to go. I've already made up my mind,"

the girl wiped her tears away as she spoke.

Cassandra glanced at her name plate—Maggie from the Design Department. She also took part in Mr. Wang's project—she was a very valuable and hardworking employee to have.

Suddenly, Cassandra thought of something a bit crazy.

"Well, if you insist, I guess I'll have to come with you!"

Cassandra walked to Maggie and placed a hand on her arm as a gesture of support and care.

"Ma... Manager Qin..."

Maggie hadn't expected this at all. She couldn't believe her ears—her boss was going with her? Did she hear that correctly?

"I don't have much on my plate right now and I can hand over the rest of the work to others. We'll leave in the afternoon,"

Cassandra said in a resolute tone. She met with some of the department heads to hand over her work. Then she asked her assistant to gas up her car.

Cassandra never used the company car if it wasn't for work. She was a strict follower of the company rules because she wanted to set an example to her employees. In fact, she was a stickler for the rules that she would take a taxi to work everyday.

But today, she decided to use the car just so she could go with Maggie to A City and everyone was buzzing about it

"Wow, Manager Qin is such a good boss. Where else will you hear a boss accompanying her employee for a family visit?"

"Well, it's not really a family visit but more like a family search! I hope Maggie finds her aunt and uncle though. God bless her!"

Cassandra quickly dropped by the Garden Villa to pack up some clothes.

Victor updated Rufus right away.

"Miss Qin has just left the Garden Villa holding a suitcase full of clothes."

Rufus felt his heart skip a beat when he heard this. What on earth was his little woman up to?
