He knew he had been seen it before, those teary eyes. Then, he saw Taeyeon wipe her eyes before she says
“I shouldn't involve myself with you at first...”
“No!” suddenly Jiyong said to stop her.
Taeyeon look at him with stunned.
“I know, what you are telling me... I understand what you are saying...” Jiyong continue while looking at Taeyeon eyes.
“What did you understand?” Taeyeon asked curious.
“…You felt strange inside you... so do I. You keep thinking of me... I also keep thinking about you... when we're not talking and see each other, I felt empty...” Jiyong replied to explain the truth.
Taeyeon keep looking at him without saying anything.
For the first time, she got this confession. Even though, she's had been in a relationship before, but that man never talked to her like this. Jiyong words make her heart beat rapidly.
“So… please, don't ignore me... can you?” Jiyong asked softly.
She looks at him for a while, and then Taeyeon nodded slowly to answer him.
“I won't do that...” Taeyeon replied slowly.
Then, Jiyong smiles widely before he says

“Unnie…!” Hayeon shouts toward them.
Both of them startled with the sudden voice.
“What?” Taeyeon asked while looks at her.
“Did you two arguing again? Omma, ask me to stop it...” Hayeon said while approaching them.
Jiyong and Taeyeon are laughing after Hayeon said that.
“Nope, we're not arguing... we decided to get peace...” Jiyong said jokingly.
Hayeon look at both of them with suspicious eyes.
“Should I trust it?” Hayeon asked with doubt.
Taeyeon rolling her eyes before she grab Hayeon shoulder and then drag her out from there. Jiyong continue his smiling while looking at them. Before she left, Taeyeon once again turn to look at Jiyong and smiles widely at him.
“So it's truth both of you already making a peace...” Hayeon said after she saw her sister smiling.
“Shut up…” Taeyeon said try to cover her shyness.

“Did you find him there?” his assistant asked.
“No… he’s not in China… and he's also not with Grace.” Hyuk replied.
“So, what next? You think he’s going somewhere?” the assistant asked curious.
“I don’t think so… I can feel he’s not gonna leave the country... did you find out where his father trying to locate him?” Hyuk asked curious.

Kwon Hyuk silent for a while before he says

“Yes, sir…” the assistant replied.

“Appa! That’s hurt…” Hyuk said while hold his head.
“Tell me… where have you been?” his father asked furious.
“Arasso…” Hyuk replied with gloomy face.
His father keeps standing while waiting for him to explain.

“Why you want to find him? Just let him be... you know it's give you more benefit when he's not here... halabeoji will adore you more... and give this company to you...” his father said try to explain.
“No appa... I ask my assistant to investigate halabeoji will. You know what I find out? Halabeoji give his shared holder to Jiyong fully! If Jiyong get that share... don't you think he's the one will get the company? That's why I want him here... and make him my black sheep...” Hyuk said try to explain his plan.

“Did you keep the ledger? You know if halabeoji find that ledger, we're doom.” His father said with uneasy.
“Don't worry... I know the good place to hide it...” Hyuk replied with smiles.
