Jonas couldn't stop thinking about the blood-stained pajamas. Although he had sent his people to the hospital to find the truth, he hadn't found anything yet.

Everything seemed to fall in place now. His mind was adding all the pieces of information together. His heart was saying one thing but his brain was denying it. In his eyes, Melinda was a greedy woman, so she wouldn't have kept her mouth shut if she was really pregnant.

Tears continued to stream out of Melinda's eyes. She had become numb, but Nelson's anger and the thought of her baby churned the emotions in her heart, making them gush out of her eyes.

She couldn't imagine how she had endured their torture all these years. She had survived but lived like a walking corpse. She had been used to humiliation and torture.

"You disgusting bastard! What have you done? Aren't you ashamed of yourself? Melinda is your wife. How could you treat her like shit?" Nelson glared at Jonas. The mere sight of Jonas was driving him crazy. "Don't worry, my child. I'm still the head of the family and I get to decide what needs to be done," he comforted Melinda.

Nelson tapped his crutch and glanced at Emily. She had always been a weakling; at least that was what Jonas thought her to be. But if Emily was as weak as she portrayed herself to be, how did she find the strength to create trouble in his family? As a seasoned old man, Nelson knew she was never as simple as she appeared.

"Grandpa, I don't need anything. Let me divorce him. I've had enough, I cannot put up with the torture anymore." The people around them felt sorry for Melinda when they saw her crying.

Jonas knitted his eyebrows and looked at Melinda as if he was seeing her for the first time. His heart was filled with doubts and questions but now wasn't the time to sort them out. Guilt was consuming him.

"Look what you've done! You failed to protect your wife! What kind of a husband are you?"

Nelson was disappointed with his grandson. He hadn't known about Melinda's pregnancy and it was too painful to find out that Melinda had lost her baby, the heir of Gu family. Anger rose from the pit of Nelson's stomach as he smacked Jonas's back with his crutch.

Everyone was equally furious. They didn't expect Jonas to do such a thing. Yulia's smirk was wiped off from her face as she began to tremble with fear.

She had always been afraid of Nelson and Jonas. Nelson's anger terrified her. She had never seen him like this before.

Melinda was touched by Nelson's gesture. She felt that it would be disrespectful to mention the divorce again.

"Jonas, I didn't push her. Trust me!" Tears fell from the corners of Emily's eyes. She was looking vulnerable. Melinda narrowed her eyes and looked at her.

"Emily, that's enough. I think it's time for you to go home." Jonas didn't want Emily to be involved in this matter. He was too confused and didn't know who to believe and who not to.

Things were messed up. It wasn't a big deal for him, but he didn't want anyone to point their finger at Nelson and his family.
