After Taeyeon finish eating, Jiyong ask her to get a rest while he takes the tray into the kitchen. Inside the kitchen, he saw Mr. Kwon is there, drinking. Jiyong put the tray in the sink before he turns to look at his father.
“Will you let omma torture Taeyeon like this?” Jiyong asked angry tone.
Mr. Kwon looks at him with confused.
“I know you two didn't like her... but it doesn't mean you can torture her like that. If that happen again, I won't hesitate to leave this house and the company.” Jiyong continue firmly.
“What did omma do?” suddenly Mr. Kwon asked.
After that Jiyong tell him the situation that the maid told him before. Mr. Kwon stunned after he heard that.
“I know I can't ask her to apologies, but as her husband...you know what to do... also, I want back the ring that she took from Taeyeon. That's Taeyeon mother ring. She gave it for our wedding. I warn you, no one can harm my wife, as long I'm her husband,” Jiyong replied try to warn him.

“Yeah... I want to let her know who the real queen in the house is. How dare, she's trying to warn me...”
Afterward, Mr. Kwon went to snatch her phone from her, and he threw it on the bed.

“You tell me... what did you do to Taeyeon?” Mr. Kwon asked with angry face.
Mrs. Kwon silent after she saw her husband is angry.
“Tell me!” Mr. Kwon shouts when his wife keeps silent.

Mr. Kwon looks at her with narrow eyes.
“Jiyong already told me what just happened today... did you do that to her?” Mr. Kwon asked firm.
Mrs. Kwon starts to feel uneasy after her husband said that.
“So... she dares to tell Jiyong... that bastard!” Mrs. Kwon muttered slowly.
“I want you to go and apologies to her...now!” suddenly Mr. Kwon said with firm.
“What? No… never!” Mrs. Kwon replied with ego.
“If not... then, give back her ring. That’s belonging to her!” Mr. Kwon said.
Mrs. Kwon stares at her husband with angry after he said that.
“Is that what she asked Jiyong to say that? The ring? She wanted it back?” Mrs. Kwon asked furiously.

“You will regret for doing this to me, Taeyeon...!” Mrs. Kwon muttered with angered.
Taeyeon walk out from the bathroom while wipe her wet hair. She looks at Jiyong with confused when she saw Jiyong wearing the casual clothes.
“You are not going to the office?” Taeyeon asked while looking at him.

Taeyeon look at him with strange but Jiyong continue his smiles before he pinch her cheek softly.
“Now, go get ready... we have a place to visit...” Jiyong continue while he pushes her into the wardrobe room.
Taeyeon frown but she still listens to his words.
Jiyong smiles, and then he went to go preparing something before they go out. He takes the ring that his father gives him last night, and then he put it into the small box with care. After that, he takes the box before he put into his jacket pocket.

“Wait up…” Taeyeon replied.
Jiyong went to approach her before he hugs her from behind.
“Jiyong, did you behave like this because of me crying last night? You know I'm okay, right?” Taeyeon asked with suspicious.
