Turning livid with rage, Caspar glared at Jenny. "Tell me the truth. Were you with another man last night?" he asked, his voice as cold as ice.

Jenny was frightened at how Caspar was treating her right now. Although she knew that he loved her as his daughter, she knew that it was only up to some extent. Caspar only loved Jenny because he had high expectations for her -- Jenny was supposed to marry into a rich and powerful family so that it would benefit the JH Group.

Jenny was well aware of this. That was the reason why she was not allowed to go on dates or be in love with just anyone.

"Tell me!" Caspar shouted again, shaking Jenny's shoulders.

"I don't have a boyfriend," Jenny mumbled a little tearfully.

Sophia squinted her eyes. 'Looks like she's going to keep denying it. But since she chose to do this, she should have seen what was coming for her!'

"No boyfriend? Hmm... Then what's your relationship with Peter? If he is not your boyfriend, why were you naked in his bed earlier?"

As if Caspar and Stellar couldn't get even more shocked, Sophia dropped the bomb that had totally ruined their image of Jenny! Jenny's mouth opened, but no words came out. For a long time, she was at a loss for words.

"You bitch... you... I can't... What are you talking about?! Stop talking nonsense!"

Sophia glanced at Jenny calmly with an obvious triumph in her eyes. It was obvious to everyone at this point -- Sophia was no longer the same woman who could be easily bullied and pushed around.

Jenny's loud voice suddenly made Caspar and Stellar snap back to reality. "Is this true, Jenny? How can you do this to me? I have poured in so much time and effort to raise you into an honorable woman. And for what? So that you can run off with a poor country boy like Peter? You've let me down!"

Jenny bit her lip and didn't dare to make a sound.

Anger surged up in Caspar's heart when Jenny was no longer able to lie her way out of this situation. He pointed at Jenny angrily with his fingers trembling. "You really disappointed me! I've told you countless times to behave yourself! We've told you to find a man with wealth and power, and yet you chose Peter who has neither! Shame on you!"

"There's nothing more we can do, Caspar. What's done is done," Stellar said as she put her arm in front of Jenny protectively.

"So what! What's the big deal if I slept with Peter?" Jenny retorted angrily at Caspar.

All that Jenny desired was to have what Sophia had.

"You...!" In a fit of anger, Caspar raised his hand and was about to slap Jenny across the face.

Seeing this, Jenny's heart beat nervously in her chest as she instinctively shrunk back.

At a crucial moment, Stellar fully stepped in, putting herself in between Caspar and Jenny. "What do you want to do, Caspar? Do you really want to hurt your own daughter?! If you want to hit her

, then you have to hit me first!"

Caspar hesitated, his hand trembling in the air. With a defeated sigh, he lowered his arm, not having the heart to hit Stellar or Jenny. "From now on, you keep her at home at all times," Caspar said through gritted teeth. "She is not allowed to step out of the house without my permission!"

Meanwhile, Sophia quietly watched in the background. She lowered her eyes, not expecting that the situation would take a turn. There was a bitterness growing in her heart.

Caspar was her father. And yet, he was so heartless towards her. Now here he was, showing compassion towards Jenny and Stellar!

'Isn't this ironic...' Sophia thought bitterly.

'What else am I staying around here for?'

"I am going back to my room," Sophia said in an indifferent tone as she headed upstairs. Holding the business card in his hand, Caspar turned around to look at her. "You... You really don't know Victor?"

In fact, Caspar was looking forward to it. It would be a great thing for him to get acquainted with Victor through Sophia. If they could get close to him, the JH Group could be saved.

However, Sophia just shrugged her shoulders.

"No. I don't know him."

"Ah, I see." Caspar was a little disappointed and looked down at the card, lost in thought.

…… Jenny was grounded by Caspar and Stellar, and she could not easily leave home anymore. The next morning, Caspar went straight to find where Peter lived.

After hearing a quick, loud knock on the door, Peter came out of his apartment. "Do whatever you want, you scum. Just leave Jenny alone!" Caspar yelled at him bluntly.

Peter casually leaned on the door frame, and raised his eyebrows. It looked as if he was expecting that Caspar was going to come after him. The laidback expression on Peter's face kind of surprised Caspar.

"I know you look down upon me since you think you're some sort of big shot. But you are in no position to tell me to break up with Jenny. I'm not going anywhere unless Jenny personally tells me that she doesn't want to be with me anymore," Peter said calmly. There was a hint of pretentiousness in Peter's tone, as if he didn't just cheat on his previous girlfriend with her sister.

"In case you're not aware, I am Jenny's father. If you so much try as lay a finger on my daughter again, I can promise you that I will make your life a living hell!" Caspar threatened.

Anyone else would have been frightened by Caspar at this point. But Peter was surprisingly an exception. There was no fear on his face as he shrugged his shoulders and smiled faintly. "You're a big talker, aren't you? Well, I'm not surprised that you would take my relationship with Jenny so seriously, especially when it concerns the fate of your company. I heard things aren't going so well for the JH Group..."

Peter trailed off, his eyes glistening coldly with apprehension.
