Jay decided against saying anything since John already knew-the man always knew what he was
He took John to a seven-star hotel, joining him in the presidential suite instead of leaving immediately.
His face fell the instant John took off his cap and mask in front of him, stunned that he was disfigured to
such an extent and almost overwhelmed.
John, however, remained calm. “Did I scare you?”
“No,” Jay promptly said. “What happened?”
“Just some unsavory encounter,” John said flatly. “But I’ve spoken to a doctor, and there’s a good
chance of recovery.”
“Yeah,” Jay replied, unsure what to say just then and only felt a pain inside.
He even wondered if John wanted to hide from Cordy because of that unseemly face.
Still, John asked, “I think I’m fine alone, but I’d like you to stay with me while I’m in surgery, since I’d be
sedated or might face a medical decision that could trouble the doctors. Are you busy lately?”
“No. I can go with you.” Jay agreed without hesitation.
In fact, nothing would matter more than John’s surgery, although…
“Is there a risk in the surgery?” Jay asked.
“None. I’m just preparing for contingencies,” John said nonchalantly.
Jay nodded in silence.
“I made an appointment with a specialist at nine in the morning tomorrow. Please go there with me
when the time comes,” John added.
“That’s all for now. You should go home, get some rest-1 need some too.”
Suddenly, Jay told him, “You don’t have to be that humble around me, Johnny.”
“I never was.” John smiled faintly in turn.
Jay pursed his lips, but he eventually left the hotel room.
John’s smile faded as he closed the door behind Jay and turned to look at his reflection in the mirror.
Fortunately, Cordy did not see this.
The next day, Jay accompanied John to the hospital.
It turned out that the surgery planned for John was not as simple as he put it, and Jay could feel his
own heart racing even as he listened.
He even had trouble differentiating if the surgery was really dangerous or if he had become more afraid
of death after becoming a father.
He actually felt the impulse to dissuade John from undertaking such a radical surgery-he could just
restore his looks without demanding perfection, after all.
However, he would stop himself whenever he was on the verge of saying it, reluctant to actually stop
John was admitted on the day of the surgery, and as this surgery was being prepped, he told Jay that
he could leave.
However, Jay wanted to stay with him as much as possible- there was no way he would be at ease if
he left John alone at the hospital.
That was why he only left when John fell asleep very late into the night, and he returned home to find
Zoe still up.
“Why aren’t you in bed?” he asked mildly. “It’s very late.”
“So you can tell that it’s late? Where have you been?” Zoe asked grumpily, finding his behavior quite
strange for the past couple days-leaving early in the morning and returning very late.
And to top it all off, he was not working.
Nonetheless, Jay lied. “Something came up at work.”
He was clearly behaving unusually, and Zoe had more to ask when Jay yawned loudly. “I’m very
sleepy, Zoe. I’m going to take a bath. You should go to bed soon.”
Zoe watched his terrible performance, speechless.
What the hell was he playing at?!
