"Jacob!" Emily's face flushed red, as she cursed Jacob for being rascal and herself for being spineless, in her mind.

Jacob stared at her face, trying to catch every piece of her expressions," Why didn't you ask for my help?"

Jacob had spent all these days, waiting for Emily to reach out to him for help, but it was all in vain. It seemed like she had totally forgotten him.

This annoyed him a great deal.

"Why should I ask for your help?"

Jacob's face turned gloomy at Emily's insensitivity.

Emily zipped her lips tight and looked at Jacob without saying a word.

It suddenly occurred to her that, a few days ago, Victor said the same thing---- 'why don't you ask for Jacob's help?'

In their minds, were they already expecting her to ask for Jacob's help? Just because of that one night stand? How could they be so sure.

Jacob realized that the girl had never given a thought to ask him for help, therefore, it's quite normal to assume that she did not want to keep in touch with him.

Jacob remembered how she told Jack that she had never coveted anything from Jack while they were together. 'But, no one in the world is free of desires. Then what on earth do you want?' Jacob was baffled.

"Emily." Jacob slowly released her and asked directly," You have lost your job and gained yourself a bad reputation in the industry, don't you need my help?"

Emily, still a little dizzy, leaned against the wall, and still, tried to keep her head clear," Yes, I do. Could you please lend me one hundred dollars?"

"...", Jacob was speechless.

"I don't have any cash on me, Jacob, please lend me some money so that I can take a taxi home." Emily wasn't a fool. There's no such thing as a free lunch. If Jacob reached out to her, it meant he wanted something in return. She wasn't going to fall for his trap!

Jacob chuckled in his mind, watching her struggle to keep her dizzy head clear. 'Quite a vigilant girl.'

'Now that the girl skirted the real problem, I must give her what she's expecting.'

"I don't have cash either, but I can drive you home." It was already quite late, how could he let his little bunny go home alone and drunk?

"Oh, this is too condescending..." Emily was trying to refuse him.

"If you want to walk home, forget what I've said."

"... Then, sorry to bother you."

"No bother here, as long as it's you," Jacob half smiled and held her hand casually.

Emily blankly looked at his hand holding hers, leading her to the parking lot. "This is how my Daddy held my hand to guide me home when I was young," the words just poured out of her mouth without restrictions.

Daddy, her Father was suffering from cancer, waiting for the money to save him...

"Daddy?" Was he that old?

Jacob frowned, turned around and met with her watery eyes. His heart flapped but said nothing to blame her," ... Let's go."

They walked to the parking lot, then towards the car and then finally got in. All of that took only a few minutes.

On their way, Jacob had to watch the girl through the back mirror because she was so vigilant that she would rather die than sit on the passenger's seat in the front.

Jacob felt so helpless. If he really wanted to do something to her, he would have done it earlier, not when she was defenceless.

"Been short on money lately, right?"

Emily drew her attention back from outside of the car, and replied softly," Yes."

'No wonder she sold her precious design, ' Jacob thought. "I can help you with anything, as long as you tell me that you need it."

"I don't."

Emily's shy, but determined voice reache

d Jacob. His grip on the steering wheel tightened as he started to feel frustrated.

Emily pretended not to notice anything.

She was not stupid. She just did not want to owe Jacob anything which would only complicate their relationship even more.

She promised herself to stay away from him but today their life had accidentally intertwined again, which was not a good sign for her.

The atmosphere in the car fell silent again, except for the sound of the wind blowing against the window.

Soon, they arrived at the gate of Emily's apartment. She got off with the intention of leaving quickly, but she realized it would be impolite so she came back and said to him," Thank you, Mr. Gu, I'm home."

"You're welcome." When Emily started to walk away, Jacob got off quickly and embraced her from behind with his long arms and jested," Fare."

"What?" Emily never thought that he would ask for fare. Even though it's reasonable, she cursed him in her mind and asked," How much? I'll go upstairs and fetch the money."

Jacob answered without hesitation," One hundred thousand."

"One hundred thousand?" Emily totally sobered up upon hearing that. She made sure that she was hearing him correctly. Emily looked at him incredulously and said," Why don't you go rob the bank!" How can you ask for one hundred thousand? That's so ridiculous!"

Fifty at most, in a taxi for such a distance!

"As the CEO of Gu's consortium, I drove you home myself, that alone has to be worth one hundred thousand?"

Helpless, Emily felt the frustration in her grow as she said to him," Don't make up your own logic! Even crows are not as black as your heart!"

Jacob raised his eyebrows and said," I don't mind if you use IOUs."

'Damn it! I mind whether you mind or not!'

'Ding', an idea suddenly popped into Emily's head. Squinting her eyes, she said," Just now, you kissed me without my permission! Since it's one hundred thousand for one kiss, we are even now!"

In reality, she was the one at a disadvantage. Hmm!

Jacob saw through her tricks and nodded," Okay. "

The little bunny wanted to play a game, but still she couldn't outsmart the sly fox.

Emily was ready to leave, pleased with herself and her wit. Jacob embraced her abruptly and planted an open-mouthed kiss.

Emily failed to struggle. After the long kiss, Emily, dizzy headed, heard his voice," Now I owe you one hundred thousand."

Jacob had bested her once again.

This was the last thought on Emily's mind. As soon as Jacob released her, she tumbled up the stairs to her apartment without looking back.

Jacob looked up, an orange light lit up in one room; it looked very sweet and warm.

He smiled, smoked one cigarette and then drove off, in a happy mood.

Once Emily got inside her house, she threw up into the trash can. She had been fighting the urge to vomit all along. She was glad that she didn't vomit on Jacob. She started to feel a lot better after clearing all the alcohol from her system.

The anti-alcoholic medicine was helpful. At least, she was not so drunk as she was on that day. Emily pitied herself for not able to get the commission on three bottles of expensive wine from earlier on.

After vomiting, Emily got herself cleaned up and then went to the balcony. She was relieved to see that Jacob had already left.

In truth, she was afraid of him, especially when he showed great interest in her.

But... Interestingly, Emily later remembered that she never told Jacob where her home was but he still drove her home with clockwork precision... A sudden chill went up her spine.
