He wanted to refuse Henry, but on second thought, Jack agreed, but changed the place of the dinner to Henry's home.

At this moment, as Lea handed the delicate board to Rita, she raised her head to look at Henry who was sitting on the sofa, and asked in confusion, "Didn't you guys have dinner in the restaurant or club? Why do you have dinner at home? You should know that I can't let you drink at home."

Henry put down the remote control, raised his eyebrows and answered with a smile, "I haven't drunk alcohol since last time. Why can't you say that we have changed?"

"Changed?"

Lea couldn't help but burst into laughter. Rita raised her head, opened her eyes wide and looked at her mother curiously, wondering what was wrong with her?

She rubbed Rita's head and said, "It seems that you have a deep understanding of your previous behaviors. You know that those are all unacceptable dregs."

"Thanks to my wife's guidance."

"You have conscience."

When they were joking, the doorbell rang. When Henry opened the door and saw Jack standing outside, he looked behind him and asked with a frown, "Where is Rachel? Doesn't she come with you?"

Because they changed the place to Henry's home, so he also invited Rachel over the phone.

It was strange that he didn't see her.

Lea added, "Is she on night duty today?"

Jack's eyes darkened. Before he came to the hospital, the Director told him that Rachel had asked for leave for these two days.

But from the way Lea said, it seemed that she didn't know anything about what had happened to Rachel.

"In that case, let's have dinner now." Henry put his hand on Jack's shoulder and said excitedly, "Thank you for helping me with the project last time. Otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten the project even if I was drunk at the table.

Today, the man from the Yang Group in charge of negotiating with them drank so much that he suffered from gastrorrhagia and was sent to the hospital. He is really working hard!"

He talked a lot, but Jack didn't respond. He stared at Lea who was cleaning up the toys for Rita.

Henry took a look at him and said, "I'll go to change Rita's clothes. If you have anything to say, you can ask Lea."

At this time, in a shabby guesthouse, Rachel finally found Uncle Xu. Her worry and uneasiness in the past few days surged up in her heart. Her eyes were red. "Uncle Xu, how can you left like this? Do you know how worried Bill is?"

"I know, so I don't want to be a burden to Bill." Tears streamed out of his eyes. Uncle Xu wiped his eyes and begged, "Dr. Rachel, please don't tell Bill that I'm here. Just pretend that you haven't found me, okay?"

"No, I can't."

Suddenly, a voice sounded in the air. Bill walked in quickly and hugged Uncle Xu tightly. "Uncle Xu, you have never been my burden! You have been taking care of me since I was a child. How can you be my burden?"

"If you don't give me a chance to take care of you, how can I rest a

mfortable.

Two days ago, because of Uncle Xu's matter, Rachel's heart had been hanging. Now she finally relaxed, accompanied by a relaxed song, her eyelids gradually became a little heavy. When she was about to fall asleep, she suddenly heard Jack say, "There is an engagement ceremony tomorrow night. Will you go with me then?"

She slightly moved her buttocks and changed to a more comfortable sitting position. She asked, "Didn't you never go to such an engagement ceremony before?"

"It's different this time. The bride's father is the chairman of the JX Group. We have some cooperation recently and haven't reached an agreement yet. Since he has sent the invitation, we can't embarrass him, right?" Turning his head to take a look, Jack found that Rachel closed her eyes and pouted, like a little girl who couldn't get a lollipop.

He couldn't help but gently pinched her protruding mouth, "I promise you, go and have a seat, and come back early, okay?"

Shaking off his hand, Rachel said, "Okay."

The engagement ceremony was like a wolf in sheep's clothing. In fact, the people attending the ceremony didn't really wish the couple happiness. They just wanted to take this opportunity to talk about business, or just for the sake of others.

However, although Rachel was not willing to go, since Jack had asked, she would not refuse. But now, in front of him, she was more and more unable to hide the true emotions in her heart.

On the second day, Rachel knocked on the door of the Director's office with a fake note and said in a low voice, "Director, there is an engagement party in the afternoon. I have to leave two hours earlier."

The Director frowned, put down the pen, crossed his hands in front of him, and coughed slightly, "Dr. Rachel, you can be very dedicated to your work. But what's wrong with you these days? Why have you been asking for leave? As a senior in the hospital, you can't do this. It will be a negative example for others."
