When she finally made up her mind, she slowly nodded her head. "Okay, I agree."

Everything seemed to be under Chason’s control, which satisfied him. "Very good. You just stay here to nourish the fetus and prepare for marriage." Feeling content, he stood up and walked towards the door to leave. When he was about to turn the doorknob, he stopped and said, "I have always kept public and private affairs separate, so I will grant you a long leave. Don’t worry, you are still an employee of the J Group."

Soon enough, it had been the talk of the town. The whole company knew that she fainted in front of the CEO before she was granted with a long leave.

Therefore, everyone was restless. How could this humble employee get the special approval of the CEO?

How was she related to him?

"What should I do?" Claire’s team leader was suddenly anxious and uneasy. She liked to make trouble for Claire most. If Claire really had a special relationship with the CEO, and if these things reached her, then she would probably lose her job. Even if Claire didn't tell the CEO about it, the fact that she was so tired and fainted would get her punished as the leader.

Lily was the most furious among them all. She had spent a lot of time and energy trying to look beautiful, but she only managed to take a glance at the CEO.

It was beyond her imagination that Claire, who she didn't like at all, would get a special treatment from the CEO by fainting in his office.

While Lily was applying nail polish on her fingernails, she indignantly said, "If I had known it earlier, I would have pretended to faint. Maybe, with my beauty, I would be the wife of the CEO now."

Due to this, she earned a glare from Harriet. "Don't talk nonsense. Maybe it's just that the CEO cares about his employees."

Rumors had been spreading around the office without Claire’s knowledge, because she was still in the hospital, being treated as a VIP by the medical staffs. It was true that she enjoyed these privileges, but she couldn’t help but smile bitterly whenever she thought of her family.

It was the third day she had been in the hospital, which meant she hadn't been home for the past three days. However, her family, including her father, didn't even call her at all. It was like they weren’t bothered by her disappearance.

With this thought, Claire’s grip on the phone tightened and her eyes darkened as she looked at the screen. At this moment, she felt that the whole world had forgotten her, like she never existed at all.

Minutes had passed and her phone finally rang.

The moment she saw Lucas's name on the screen, her hands trembled.

Since she instantly panicked, she declined the call. But Lucas didn’t want to give up, so her ringtone echoed in the whole room again and again. After hesitating for a while, Claire took a deep breath and answered the call.

As soon as she picked up the phone, Lucas's gentle voice came through the phone. "Claire, what happened to you? You’re not answering my text messages or my calls. I went to your house, but you weren't there. I couldn't get through to you all the time."

Although she wanted to burst into tears, Claire did her best to sound normal. "Lucas, I'm fine."

For a moment, Lucas was stunned. Then he let out an exasperated sigh. "Claire, I'm almost done with my business now. Why d

on't we find an opportunity to meet?"

Tears welled up in Claire’s eyes when she heard this. God knew how much she wanted to see her boyfriend who had been separated from her for more than one year. She really wanted to ignore everything and throw herself into his arms.

But she would never have a chance, would she? After all that happened, how could she even have the guts to imagine a life with him?

"Lucas, I... Will you forgive me no matter what I have done?"

"Of course. I love you so much, and I’m willing to forgive you all the time." These words sounded so sweet, but it cut her heart deep.

His soft voice, and his words were enough reasons for her not to be selfish.

She couldn't be pregnant with someone else’s child and occupy Lucas's heart.

At the thought of this, the tears she had been holding back suddenly fell. With a heavy heart, she said, "Lucas, let's break up."

They both remained silent for a while. Lucas, who was on the other end of the line, found it hard to believe what he just heard. "Claire, what on earth happened? Why are you breaking up with me all of a sudden? If you..."

Unable to bear the pain in her heart, Claire quickly ended the call and cried out in her bed.

The people who were looking after her noticed this, and soon Larry got the news.

Since Larry had exposed Chason’s affair with Claire under the chairman’s pressure the last time, he had been extra careful these days.

As expected, when Chason heard this news, he was naturally annoyed. "Do you mean the man who called Lucas is her boyfriend?"

To confirm this, Larry nodded his head and told him everything that the nurse said.

This woman!

A pang of agitation rose in his heart. It reminded him that on the day when he was in the hotel, Claire kept asking him where Lucas was.

It seemed that this woman didn't lie.

What he was worried about now was that Claire's boyfriend might tell it to the media once he found out about her pregnancy. It would surely have a bad impact on him and the J Group.

Without raising his head, Chason ordered, "Investigate this man right away. Wait, and check what he was doing that night."

In a hurry, Larry gathered information about Lucas and handed the documents to Chason.

He was from the Xu family?

Wasn't this the family whose company was going to be listed? The more he read Lucas's profile, the more his frown deepened.

Suddenly, his eyes stopped on a blockbuster news.

That night, Lucas was indeed in the hotel, but the woman who slept with him was someone else.

The corners of Chason's mouth rose slightly. He imagined the scene when Claire was crying her eyes out, without knowing that Lucas unexpectedly had the time of his life that night.

This stupid woman probably didn't know what her beloved boyfriend had done.

'That's good. I thought Claire's boyfriend was a tough nut to crack. It turns out that this problem is easy to be solved.'

At the thought of this, an unknown emotion rose in his heart. He didn't know how the woman would feel when she knew all this.

'Forget it. It's none of my business.' The only thing he should care about now was the baby in her belly. He had no obligation or energy to care about other things. After checking all the information about Lucas, Chason ordered Larry to solve the problem as he thought.
