When she was in a daze, a knock came on the door. It was the servant of the Zhan mansion who asked her if she had got up.

In the room, she said, "I'll go downstairs now."

When she got downstairs, she saw Lucian standing in the center of the living room.

His tall and strong figure was hard to neglect.

But it was not like her usual joy. She walked slowly towards him, ill at ease.

At the sight of her, a trace of joy flitted across Lucian's face.

When did their gazes become cautious?

"Did you sleep well last night?" He waited for her to approach and asked with concern.

She scratched her head, feeling a little embarrassed. 'It's already ten o'clock. Even if I can't sleep well, I already got up late, ' she thought.

"Not bad." She looked around and avoided his eyes.

Lucian nodded and sighed, "I didn't sleep well."

Amelia was surprised. She looked up and saw Lucian's face.

However, he seldom acted unreasonably like this. Was he satirizing her for sleeping well or just a casual sigh?

"I'm not accustomed to a night without you." Then, he explained to Amelia unabashedly.

Her face flushed and she felt it burning.

Despite her shyness, she couldn't help but take it to heart when she remembered that he had driven her out of the SJ Garden, and her face returned to a calm look.

"Do you mean that you will think of me only when you feel lonely and cold?" She sneered.

Lucian shook his head and explained, "You know that's not what I mean."

"Of course I know you didn't mean that. There are so many women chasing you outside. You don't need me to warm your bed." She stared at the shining floor with a sneer.

Lucian didn't expect that Amelia would say that. However, it still made him feel bad.

"Amelia, am I that kind of man who always have an affair?" Said Lucian, looking at her with painful eyes.

Amelia looked up to make eye contact with Lucian and said coldly, "I didn't say that you have a lot of women outside. Just one or two."

She referred to Sasha. How could he feel wronged. Sasha was pregnant with his child, but he thought Amelia was making trouble out of nothing.

He noticed the disappointment in Lucian's eyes.

She pretended to take it lightly and looked away from Lucian. "If there's nothing else, I'll leave first!"

No matter she was being sarcastic or quick tongued, the anger in her heart seemed to have vanished a lot.

"So you mean that you are not going back to the SJ Garden?" He asked coldly.

At the mention of the SJ Garden, Amelia couldn't help trembling. She had never thought that she wouldn't go back there, but she couldn't help sighing when Lucian sounded out to confirm her thoughts.

"You have the right to drive me out of the SJ Garden and I have the right not to go back there, but as for Mark, he is my son, and you have no right to interfere with his seeing me!" It doesn't seem to matter as much as whether Amelia can go b

stic servant showed her the way as soon as Nicholas proposed.

The villas were large. After half an hour, they didn't even walk around the backyard.

If she was not taken by the servants, she would definitely have lost her way.

Suddenly, the phone buzzed. It was a text message from Jonny, who hadn't contacted her for a long time.

'Amelia, my beloved girl, I will give you a big gift today. Remember to watch the news.'.

After reading it, Amelia was confused.

She didn't have the habit of watching the news, but she felt uneasy after listening to Jonny's words.

It was something about Jonny, so it must have something to do with Lucian... She signed in to the news terminal.

"Go ahead with your work. I'll walk around myself." Amelia said to the servant behind her.

Sitting beside the artificial fountain, she scanned the news page over and over again.

Half an hour later, as expected, the news about Lucian was on the headlines. The eye-catching headline almost made Amelia's heart explode.

"Lucian Zhan, a talent in business, is actually an illegitimate child of unknown origin. His wife is Nicholas' biological daughter!"

She couldn't wait any longer and dialed Jonny's number. He picked up the phone as quick as usual, which surprised her.

"Is it really interesting to expose other people's privacy?" Amelia yelled and clenched her fists.

"I knew you would call me after you read the news. Well, this explosive news will make the Zhan Group a focus. You should be happy for Lucian." Jonny said with smile in his voice. He didn't think he had crossed the line.

The news hadn't been made public. How did Jonny know it?

Although Fannie didn't like her, she couldn't tell Jonny about it because it had something to do with Lucian's reputation. In fact, the maids of the Zhan family were trained and had their own positions in the house. They seldom talked about it in private, and they wouldn't tell the media...
