"I don't know." He clenched his slender fingers, and a touch of worry flashed through his handsome eyes. "Need to get there first."

A hint of surprise flashed on Amber's face. 'It must have something to do with Rachel, ' she thought.

Rachel and Jack arrived ahead of time, and Dr. Austin, Executive Fang followed.

Dr. Austin was like being tortured. His skin was dry and his lips cracked. Under his dark circles, he looked haggard.

Rachel was shocked by his appearance, "Dr. Austin... Are you okay?"

He tried to make a smile and said to Rachel, "I'm okay. Nothing."

However, he looked like being in a trance. He insisted that he was okay, but no one believed him.

Executive Fang was not in a good mood either. He glanced at his nephew, said nothing to him, and greeted to Rachel and Jack. When he turned around, he also had a serious look on his face.

She guessed that something must have happened, so she exchanged a glance with Jack, with a tacit understanding between them.

Chief Ren came in alone. After greeting them politely, he began to get down to business.

Perhaps he had known something and he was not as nervous as last night when he met with Jack.

The opening was boring, and he just made an apology as a routine. But this apology was only aimed at Jack and Rachel.

"I'm sorry for what happened yesterday," he said. As if he were in a meeting and reporting to his superior.

Jack crossed his slender hands over his stomach, and looked blankly at him as he spoke.

He was a little curious that Chief Ren's attitude was not as guilty and panic as yesterday.

Maybe Jack saved Ren's face before or Ren had something he could turn over.

After the opening remarks, Chief Ren shifted his attention to the uncle and nephew.

"After checking out what happened yesterday, I found that somebody reported to the police indeed. However, we made a mistake to arrest the people in the hospital without enough evidence... I apologize for what I have done to you!"

There was no expression on Dr. Austin's pale face. His back was straight and his eyes fell on the table, motionless.

Executive Fang was much calmer than him. He bent his index finger and knocked gently on the table. "Chief Ren, it's better to thoroughly investigate this matter from beginning."

Chief Ren said with an amiable smile, "That's necessary. You can rest assured that if it's not the responsibility of a doctor of the hospital we will guarantee your safety."

On the other hand, if it was the doctor's responsibility, it would not be so simple.

After the initial panic, he calmed down, thinking that he could not compromise so easily.

His son used the police station's resources and went straight to the hospital to arrest people without going through the formal procedure.

If it was caught by someone, especially the politicians, it would be a big news to fix him.

Chief Ren didn't want to get involve

ello," Amber greeted, smiling unnaturally.

But Rachel was surprised. She couldn't help but think, 'Miss Ying, wasn't she the one who went on a blind date that day?'

He could tell what she was thinking from her expression. Lucas explained immediately, "Don't think too much. We are just ordinary friends."

Lucas had been close to Amber these days, but there were reasons. He knew clearly that she's not his cup of tea.

He was just explaining to her and told her not to think too much.

However, Amber's feeling was different. In her opinion, Lucas was worried that Rachel would misunderstand their relationship which made her unhappy.

Seeing them look at each other in silence, Amber was so angry that she even felt a slight pain in her chest.

'We are just friends?' She had asked him out so many times. They hugged and kissed, why he still told others that they were just friends?

Ignoring other reasons, Amber intentionally stepped forward and held Lucas's hand. "Didn't you come here in a hurry? Why don't you ask what happened?"

She looked at Lucas, but out of the corner of her eyes, she kept noticing at Rachel.

She saw Rachel's face slightly changed when she put hand on Lucas's.

She had to make Rachel know that who's more important to Lucas.

Lucas didn't notice this tiny detail. Upon hearing Amber's words, he asked Rachel anxiously.

Rachel didn't hide anything from him. She briefly told him what had happened.

After listening to it, his whole eyebrows were tightly locked, and his eyebrows were filled with a thin layer of anger.

"Why didn't you tell me about it?"

He was worried about her, but his words sounded a little bit strange, as if he were blaming her.

Lucas hastily explained, "I will be worried if anything happens. Do you know that?"

Rachel didn't think too much. Instead, she tried to comfort him, "It's all right. Don't worry too much. Didn't Jack go inside to solve the problem?"
