Austin nodded and asked, "So Mrs. Fu will come to take care of you every day?"

Jack did not even bother to roll his eyes at Austin. 'He's too obtuse to take the hint.'

"Alright, I'll come clean. She will come here to take care of me. I just don't want others to think that she comes here to be my nanny. I don't want to hear that kind of chatter around. Do you understand me, Austin?"

Austin was trying his best not to burst out in laughter. "I understand, sir," he nodded.

'Is he afraid that people might think he has Rachel beside him just because she's a doctor?' he wondered.

Jack wasn't the kind of person that would flaunt anything to others, but when he decided to be with Rachel, he wanted the people around him to know.

When he was together with Celine, he had tried to hide the fact that he was married, so a lot of people believed that he was never married.

But now, he didn't want anyone to misunderstand Rachel.

He was the one who did something wrong. When word got out that he had been married five years ago, it also meant that he had an affair with Celine for the past few years.

Only people in the business circle knew this.

He never wanted Rachel to be the subject of rumors and issues.

Rachel shouldn't have to suffer the consequences of his actions and be involved in pointless chatters. Jack had never involved her in his social circle before, but now it seemed like it was inevitable. He knew well that he had to prepare for anything that might arise.

Jack had been worrying about his wife the whole day. Earlier this morning, he sent her two messages, and all he got were words that barely held any affection.

One was "The housekeeper's coming."

The other one was "What do you want to eat for dinner?"

It was just her style of texting. Jack, on the other hand, seemed to have become a totally different person.

It looked like he was the one who got fucked the whole night and was waiting for the other person to be responsible for him.

Jack forced himself to stop staring at his phone. Rachel didn't bother to text or call him after the last two messages she had sent.

Jack tried to focus on working, but he couldn't stop thinking about Rachel.

'What has she been doing all day?'

Little did he know that after he left, Rachel stayed in bed for another hour. She was surprised how difficult it was to maintain good habits, and how easy it was to pick up the bad ones.

Her habit of sleeping early and getting up early in the morning had been lost.

It wasn't really because she didn't want to get up early anymore. It was because she was too sore to move after what had happened last night. She ended up staying in bed falling asleep again.

Rachel was deep in her sleep until the door abruptly opened from outside.

The housekeeper who was holding a bucket and a sponge bolted out of the room after apologizing several times.

Now that the housekeeper had arrived, Rachel had no choice but to get up.

After Rachel decided to move in with Jack, he immediately told the housekeeper. But it still came as a shock that they had to meet like this for the first time. She didn't expect that someone was still in the bedroom at this time of the day.

When Rachel finished cleaning up herself, she went out of the room. Albeit hesitant, the housekeeper bowed her head and greeted Rachel. "It

ed behind him shortly after putting on a more suitable pair of shoes. She didn't want to embarrass Jack after all.

When Rachel got out of the lounge, Jack put his arm around her waist and said "Everyone, this is my wife, Rachel."

All of them were too shocked to say a word.

Frankly, changing girlfriends was not that big of a deal for them. But this was new, he just introduced her as his wife.

She was obviously much more important to Jack than his previous affair.

After a long pause, someone finally had the courage to say what everyone was thinking. "Mr. Fu, have you registered your marriage?"

They guessed that they had registered their marriage but they had not conducted a ceremony yet.

And they were right on the money. It was true that Jack and Rachel had gotten married without a celebration. At the time, they only invited some of their relatives and held the marriage abroad.

Not even their closest friends could attend the wedding.

"It was registered five years ago," Jack responded flatly, holding her hand under the table.

They were even more shocked than before.

Rachel acted like nothing unusual had been said, as if she wasn't staring at a bunch of astound people.

Out of everyone, Austin was the calmest. He had known about this all along after all.

Seeing that his colleagues were all too dumbfounded to say another word. Jack pressed his fist against his lips and cleared his throat. "Let's go have lunch."

It was an uneasy lunch. The managers present were all the right-hand assistants of Jack. They knew that Jack would give them what for if they kept acting like idiots.

They have to stay calm no matter what they were thinking right now.

They introduced themselves to Rachel one after the other. They were glad that she responded so kindly to them.

While they were seated together, everyone thought that they looked like a lovely couple.

It was just a private gathering. Jack wanted the people around him to get familiar with her first.

It was his own way of showing Rachel a glimpse of his work life and social circle little by little. He didn't really want her to blend into his social circle, but he at least wanted her to be familiar with the people he sat down with.
