The living room had been cleaned up by the nanny. Brody, who had cooled down, sat face to face with Zed on the sofa. "How is the stock in Estelle's hand going?"

When he was asked about the shares, Zed lowered his head and couldn't say anything.

Seeing him like this, Brody knew that it was not done yet. He was furious. "What the hell are you doing? You can't get even a little shares. What's the use of you? "

"I just got married with Estelle. It will take some time for me to get the shares."

"You don't have to explain to me." Disappointment was written all over Brody's face. He looked at Zed, who was about to explain, and said, "if you failed, then you failed. Don't try to find excuses to cover up your incompetence."

Being judged by his father like this, Zed felt very aggrieved, but he had to admit that he did not get the shares.

"Dad, don't worry. I will get the shares from Estelle as soon as possible. I won't let you wait too long."

Brody didn't expect that Zed would make such a promise. "It's useless to make such a promise. I only want to know the result!"

Knowing Brody's temper, Zed didn't say anything more and was ready to leave.

"If you were half as capable as York, I wouldn't have bothered so much every time."

As soon as Zed stood up, he heard what Brody said. His face turned cold immediately. "Dad, no matter how capable York is, he is not your son, but the person who is against you."

Brody, who was still angry, stood up at once when he saw the sudden change of Zed's attitude. "What do you mean by that? Are you not convinced? "

"I'm not unconvinced! I just feel that you don't take me seriously at all! " Zed sneered and shouted at Brody, "every time you compare York with me, you don't care about what I have done. I, Zed, just want to know what you think of me, Brody. Am I your son? "

He had had enough of the humiliation of York and Ada in the church. Now when he came back home, he was disliked by his father and his father even compared himself with York.

At this time, Zed, who had been holding back his anger all the way, finally burst out under the again and again stimulation of Brody.

This was the first time that Zed got angry with his father, so when Zed finished shouting, it took a long time for Brody to react.

"Well, you've grown up, haven't you? Do you forget who you are because you have a position in the company? "

As he spoke, Brody picked up the ashtray on the new tea table and threw it to Zed.

Brody thought he would dodge, but Zed didn't.

Seeing the ashtray smash a hole on his forehead, Brody panicked. "Are you an idiot? Don't you know how to dodge? "

Although Brody was cursing Zed, he stopped the bleeding with a tissue in his hand.

Zed felt regretful when he saw his father panic about his injury.

he regretted that he couldn't control his temper just now and that he had misunderstood his father's true feelings for him.

"Dad, I'm fine. It's not a big deal." Zed covered his forehead with his hand and looked at Brody with guilt. "Dad, I'm sorry. I lost control of my temper just now."

Hearing Zed's apology, Brody waved his hand and said, "it's also my fault. I just..."

Brody didn't finish his sentence, but Zed nodded and said, "I know what you mean. Please give me some time. I won't let you down."

Brody didn't say anything, but patted on Zed's shoulder to encourage him.

After leaving Brody's house, Zed went to the hospital to simply deal with the wound and rushed to his home.

When he got home and saw that Estelle was lying on the bed weakly, Zed calmed himself down and personally fed her the medicine.

"How are you feeling? Are you okay? Does your belly still hurt? "

Zed's concern touched Estelle. "I'm fine. The baby is fine too. Don't worry."

At the mention of the baby, Zed's face darkened and he said angrily, "you are not allowed to do such a dangerous thing again, okay? What if you hurt the baby? He is the fruit of our love! "

Although his words were full of reproach for Estelle, on the surface, Zed was fully pampering and pitiful.

Zed's words worked. Like a child who had done something wrong, Estelle nodded and said, "I promise I won't do that again. I will protect our child well."

She wanted to touch Zed's cheek, but found the wound on his forehead. Estelle asked worriedly, "where did you get the wound on your forehead?"

Being asked about the wound, Zed deliberately said, "nothing. I just accidentally hit the wall when I went out."

For this ridiculous excuse, Estelle didn't believe it at all. She pretended to be angry and said, "didn't you say that you would trust me unconditionally? Why do you hide such a little thing from me now? "

"Honey, it's just a small wound. I didn't hide it from you." Zed gently touched her hair and said, "so, don't think too much, Estelle, okay?"

"You just took the medicine. You should have a sleep now. It will work quickly," said Zed in a childish

tone after tucking Estelle in.

Knowing that no matter how hard she asked, she couldn't get anything, so Estelle closed her eyes and fell asleep obediently.

Zed sat on the edge of the bed for a while and left when he felt that Estelle had really fallen asleep.

As soon as Zed closed the door, Estelle, who had been sleeping with her eyes closed, immediately opened her eyes. She picked up the phone on the side and called Zed's driver.

Zed stood at the door and didn't leave until he heard the conversation in the room.

In the room, seeing the driver standing there respectfully, Estelle said coldly, "tell me the truth. Where did the injury on Zed's forehead come from?"

Being asked this question, the driver Jerry Chen's face was obviously full of panic. He faltered, "Miss, the injury on Young Master's forehead was caused by his carelessness when he walked and hit the wall."

Seeing that Jerry Chen and Zed gave the same answer, Estelle said coldly, "Jerry, I'll give you the last chance. If you don't tell the truth, I can fire you!"

When Jerry heard the two words "fire you", he was frightened and immediately said, "Miss, don't fire me! My family lives on my job! "

"In that case, why don't you tell me the truth as soon as possible?"

Being threatened by Estelle, Jerry told the truth at once, "Mr. Brody smashed on Young Master's forehead with an ashtray. I don't know the specific situation. I vaguely heard in the distance that there seemed to be something wrong with the company. Mr. Brody thought that Young Master didn't deal with it well. "

After knowing the reason, Estelle asked Jerry to leave. Sitting on the bed, she was worried and thought whether she needed to help Zed.

After leaving Estelle's room, Jerry Chen went straight to the study of Zed.

Zed, who was working in the study, saw him and asked anxiously, "have you done as I said?"

"Young Master, don't worry. I've told Miss everything you said. She has no doubt about it. "

Upon hearing this, Zed was in a good mood. He patted Jerry on the shoulder and said, "well done!"

"Young Master, how about the matter you promise me?" Jerry Chen made a gesture to Zed with an obscene look.

Seeing Jerry Chen's expression, Zed turned around and opened the drawer beside him. He handed Jerry a thick paper bag and said, "well, this is my promise. It's a lot."

Taking the paper bag from Zed, Jerry couldn't wait to open it and have a look. Seeing the money in front of his eyes, Jerry Chen nodded and bowed to Zed happily. "Then Young Master, you can go on with your work. I won't disturb you anymore."

After Jerry Chen left the study, Zed took a look at his watch and found that it was almost time for dinner. He also left the study.

Now that he had used the self injury trick, it was his turn to fight in person.

Hearing the crackling sound downstairs, Estelle, who was worried about Zed in the room, stood up and went downstairs in confusion.

"Zed, what are you doing?"

When she came downstairs, Estelle saw that Zed was cooking in the kitchen in a hurry with an apron on him.

Seeing Estelle come over, Zed felt a little embarrassed and asked, "well, why did you come downstairs?"

Instead of answering Zed's question, Estelle continued to ask, "what are you doing now?"

"The doctor said that you are very weak now. Some soup is good for your recovery. I just wanted to make a bowl of soup for you myself, but I didn't expect it to be messed up. "

Hearing what Zed said and seeing his clumsy look, Estelle was moved with tears in her eyes. "Why are you so silly? Just leave it to the nanny. Why do you have to do it yourself? "

Seeing the tears on her face, Zed was secretly happy, but he pretended to be distressed and pulled Estelle into his arms. "Well, don't cry. My heart hurts when you cry. "

"I'm not crying. I just feel sorry for you."

Wiping the tears from the corner of her eyes, Estelle touched Zed's face lovingly and said, "can you stop being so good to me? I'm afraid I'll cling to you. What if I can't live without you if you don't want me anymore? "

"Silly girl, how could I abandon you? Don't think too much about those impossible things, okay? "

Zed gently rubbed Estelle's hair and took off his apron. "I wanted to make a bowl of soup for you, but I failed. I had to ask the nanny to do it."

Zed carried Estelle to the sofa and put her down. Then he turned around and went to the kitchen to clean up the mess he had made.

Half lying on the sofa, looking at the busy back of Zed, Estelle felt that she was the happiest woman in the world at the moment.

"Zed, why don't you let me know that you are not good enough since you have given me all your good?"

When Zed, who was in the kitchen, heard such words from behind, he smiled proudly. When he turned around, he quickly changed to his gentle face and said to Estelle, "I'm fine."

"Don't lie to me anymore. I know what happened to your forehead."
