Still in her MPV, Zoe was scrolling through the news on her phone distractedly.
More articles were appearing online, almost snuffing out the scandal between Kyle and Noel.
She eventually reached Levine Manor, and she alighted to find Jay standing by the front door,
seemingly waiting for her.
Zoe simply strode past him, pretending not to see him.
“Zoe,” he called out, but she ignored that too.
“Zoe,” he called out again, reaching out to grab her wrist.
She promptly raised her hand, avoiding his touch while wheeling on him with a cool look. “Don’t touch
me. You’ll get your filth on me.”
Jay’s fingers clenched as he lowered his hand, asking, “Have you considered what you’re going to do
about the scandal?”
“My management company is on it. Don’t worry, it won’t affect the TV series.”
“It’s Johnny in that photo, right? At my father’s seventieth birthday.”
Jay sounded positive, but Zoe did not respond even as he continued, “I can talk to him on your behalf,
see if he could enforce a media blackout.”
Although John did not agree with Zoe’s involvement in showbiz and would never help her whatever
happened, he was very close with Jay. And since Jay was also John’s uncle, John would usually have
to listen to him to some extent.
But Zoe did not need that.
“Could you just stay away from me, Jay Parker?” she snapped.
He gulped, but he otherwise stayed silent.
“I’ve been doing what I can to avoid you and wouldn’t be staying here if John didn’t force me, let alone
take a role in your project. Can’t you just spare me when I’m totally incapable of fighting back?!” Zoe
continued, snarling every word.
Her eyes were welling with tears despite her calm expression!
She had kept trying to forget and restrain herself for eight years.
But to be honest, it was grilling and agonizing!
And yet, here he was, flaunting his sympathy and causing more misunderstandings.
“I’m sorry,” he apologized.
Yet another apology.
It was the only thing that she ever got from him.
“I thought we-”
“You thought I don’t love you any more?”Zoe suggested directly.
Jay pursed his lips. “I’m not worth it.”
“Absolutely. Even I find myself foolish.” Zoe smiled. “But it doesn’t matter-I’m used to it now, after so
many years have passed. Just don’t bother me, and I can pretend I never loved you.”
As Jay remained silent, she strode past him. “Go to bed soon, Uncle Jay.”
She left so nonchalantly, without grief or misery-as if she was not the one who had been rejected.
She never noticed that Jay was doing all he could to restrain himself, even clenching his knuckles until
they were white.
At the same time, the paparazzi lurking in the darkness quietly left after taking some satisfactory
