A long sigh escaped Zuko’s lips as he felt a heavy weight in his heart.

In the stillness of the night, Jesse and Melissa’s bedroom door was tightly shut, allowing a faint light to seep through the window.

Jesse looked at his wife with a heavy heart. After much hesitation, he finally spoke with a stiff tone. “Next time… don’t show Lina’s birth certificate again.”

Melissa, who was flipping through old photos of Lina as a child, froze suddenly, her finger hovering over a particular picture of them holding Lina at the pier.

“That birth certificate is fake.” Jesse glanced around and whispered, “You shouldn’t have shown it to Zeke. He’s been jailed for forging documents before. He’s a professional! I’m sure he spotted it instantly.”
