MY UNKNOWN HUSBAND, VOLUME 2 - Season 4 Episode 89
Stopping to look at Jessica, Maya saw the burning jealousy and resentment in her eyes.
Turning to face Jason, Maya looked at him as if asking for help. “Professor Fu…”
“Maya, it’s okay,” Jason said gently with a smile. “You can go now.”
But just as Maya pushed the door open, she came across Richard who had brought the chessboard. Stepping aside quickly, she made way for him to pass.
At this moment, Jessica grabbed Maya’s wrist and gripped it tightly. Maya’s face turned pale from the pain. “We have something to talk about. Come with me.”
“What is it?” Maya asked nervously. Meanwhile, John looked at Richard and instructed him, “Richard, send Jessica back home.”
John’s voice was deep and firm. There was a certain seriousness in it that prevented other people from questioning him.
Jessica tried to speak but eventually held her tongue. In the end, she didn’t resist, and Richard escorted her back to Stone Road.
While playing chess with Sam, Jason’s mind was elsewhere, so he lost the game for no reason.
“What are you thinking about?” Sam asked. He knew what was on Jason’s mind, but he still asked.
“Nothing,” Jason replied passively. “Your chess skills have improved a lot.”
When John told him about the divorce just now, Sam was not surprised at all. It seemed that the whole Shi family had already known about it, so Jason didn’t need to call him Dad anymore.
Sam didn’t seem to care. He just quietly rearranged the white chess pieces in neat rows.
After the second round, Jason chuckled, “Oh. I lost again.”
The first time he lost because he was naive. He had known that Jessica’s love for him was not pure. Despite this, he still decided to marry her. But in the end, their divorce was no surprise.
The second time he lost because he still loved her. Jason had thought about how to greet Jessica politely when they met. He didn’t want to show much how sad and affected he was by their divorce. But when he saw Jessica, his words felt like a lump stuck in his throat. He could not look her in the eye.
Every time he glanced at her face, he couldn’t help but want to come back to her.
Jason had liked her since childhood. Even at a young age, he knew that he had a lot of work to do to be enough for her. Despite all that happened, he still felt that he couldn’t give up now. It wasn’t because of how much love and dedication he had given her that he couldn’t move on. It was simply because he still loved her.
No one forgets their first love. Jessica was Jason’s first and only love.
“No one will lose all the time. Let’s switch sides. This time, I will play the white.”
Without waiting for his answer, Sam replaced Jason’s chess pieces with the black ones, and he took the white pieces to his side of the board.
In the third round, Jason won.
Sam smiled at him, but Jason just looked at him in confusion.
“Well, this chess game is over. That piece you hold in your hand is my gift to you.” Raising his hand, Sam signaled to the butler to push him back to the bed.
Sam needed to rest. Only the three family members would stay in the ward to take care of him. The others would go back to their homes to get some rest and then change shifts.
Even though John and Jason couldn’t be a family, they were good friends who grew up together.
When the two of them were just about to find someplace quiet to talk, Lena suddenly came over. “Mr. Shi, something came up. Amy wants to talk to you.”
Since Amy was in Spring City, she must have something urgent about Nina to tell him. John quickly picked up the phone.
“Mr. Shi, Ms. Shi is missing. Please come to Spring City as soon as possible.”
With a nervous look on his face, John snapped, “Missing? What do you mean by missing? When did she disappear?”
Trembling with fear, Amy mumbled, “I couldn’t find her since last night.”
“Last night?” John raised his voice. “Why didn’t you say it until now?”
It wasn’t actually a question. John was scolding her for the delay.
“Mr. Shi, I couldn’t get in touch with anyone yesterday.” Amy wiped the cold sweat from her forehead. No matter who she tried to contact last night, nobody answered. She sent texts to everyone, but she didn’t get a single reply.
The night before, Sam was in the operating room. Everyone was in the hospital waiting anxiously, so no one paid attention to their phones.
It wasn’t until John stuck his hands in his pockets that he realized that he must have dropped his phone somewhere on the beach in Spring City. By now, the rain or the waves must have washed it away.
“I’ll be right there.” Hanging up the phone, John left in a hurry without saying goodbye to Jason.
All that he could think of at the moment was what could have happened to Nina.
What did Amy mean by missing?
Was Nina simply missing? Or did something happen?
John tried his best to stay calm while thinking about what to do.
James had received a call from his little girl. Nina must have known that he lied to her, so she deliberately hid herself from Amy.
John took a private plane to Spring City. The whole time, his right eye kept twitching. He felt as if something was about to happen.
There was a saying that if one’s left eye twitched, they would make a fortune. But if one’s right eye twitched, they would be in bad luck.
John didn’t really believe in this until he couldn’t find Nina in Spring City.
The more his right eye twitched, the more worried he became.
They managed to get possession of a folder of sealed documents. Amy opened the folder and took out a certificate. When Amy read the words on the paper, her eyes widened in horror.
Her hands trembled.
The folder fell to the floor.
All the documents in it slid out, and one of them slid dropped beside John’s feet.
It read “Resident Medical Death Certificate” in bold capital letters.
The words pierced John’s heart like a sharp blade.
He froze. He couldn’t move his body. The air in the room seemed to have frozen.
“Mr….Mr. Shi…” Amy was about to bend down and pick up the documents on the floor.
When she was about to get the death certificate beside John’s feet, he raised his hand to stop her. He then bent down and picked it up himself.
John picked up all of the documents on the floor one by one and held them tightly in his hands. His eyes swept over the death certificate and cremation certificate again and again.
His fingers trembled slightly.
His little girl was now so bold that she even dared to make a joke like that. John didn’t say a word. With tears in her eyes, Amy tried to comfort him even though she was in shock as well.
“Mr. Shi, I’m very sorry for your loss.”
“She’s not dead.” With a calm expression in his eyes, John tore up all the documents and threw them into the trash can.
How could his little girl drown to death so easily?
The only possibility was that she disappeared deliberately. As for where she would go, John couldn’t tell.
No matter where she went, he would find her even if he had to search the whole world.
After a thorough investigation, John found that Nina’s residence had been canceled and she disappeared without a trace.
According to the investigation, a luxury cruise ship appeared near the coast of Spring City and left not long after it arrived.
The cruise ship was heading to C Island.
John heaved a sigh of relief.
His little girl was fine, but her family took her away.
How could he find her across the vast sea?
