Seeing Emily getting dragged away by Jacob, made Rita laugh out so loud, her eyes sparkled with tears of joy. Her laughter dazzled David. In fact, she had never seen her laugh so whole-heartedly.

"Do you like chicken soup? I can ask someone to make it for you," David asked softly.

Rita kept a smile on her face as she stared at him, with a flicker of amusement in her cold eyes. "Don't bother. You can go about your business. I will take care of myself," she said.

David was already accustomed to being treated like a lackey by Rita after so many days of looking after her. However, since she wasn't giving him any attention, he felt redundant and unwanted. Was he a masochist?

"I'm not busy. I can stay here with you," said David.

Rita slightly curled her lips and said nothing.

Outside the ward, Emily struggled hard to escape from Jacob's hold, but it was in vain. "Jacob, what do you want? Don't beat around the bush and just tell me. And let me go right now..." demanded Emily.

Just as the words fell from her lips, Jacob let go of her. His face turned sour as if someone had poured mud all over his body.

"What's the matter with you? Why are you so upset?" asked Emily curiously, as she had no idea why Jacob was throwing a hissy fit.

Jacob slowly forced Emily into the corner, with a face like thunder. She sensed something was wrong with him, so she tried to slip away, but Jacob pulled her hands and pressed them against the wall, trapping her in the corner.

"Eh…… What do you want?"

"Emily, you made chicken soup for Rita! Why?"

Emily finally understood why Jacob was angry with her. Nevertheless, she didn't think she had done anything wrong. She made soup for Rita because Rita was her closest friend. Emily did nothing wrong; why would Jacob treat her like that?

Emily tried to calm him down, so she explained," Rita is weak right now and needs to be nourished with a proper home-made chicken soup, so…"

Jacob sneered, and mocked her with a childish tone," I don't want to listen to your excuses."

Emily was baffled. 'Is this guy nuts?' thought Emily.

"You never cooked that chicken soup for me!" he said.

Jacob gazed deeply into Emily's eyes, as his pupils dilated slowly. Emily was touched by his aggrieved expression. She found it somehow cute and adorable... Emily's heart melted and her voice turned soft.

"I'll make some nice chicken soup for you when I back home…" she said. Emily capitulated under his expectant gaze.

"Now!" demanded Jacob. Having achieved his goal, Jacob blurted out arrogantly in a non-negotiable tone.

"I have to get back

women young. All women love to eat pig's feet."

Impressed, Jacob raised his eyebrows and said," Well, I'll take some of those too."

After collecting the payment from Jacob, the vendor's face lit up like a Christmas tree. Seeing how easy it was to sell to Jacob, the other vendors started to walk up to him.

"Hello, young man, spareribs stew with wax gourd would be extremely delicious. Would you like to buy some?"

"Or you can buy some corns. They are sweet!"

"I think you should buy some soybeans or peanuts to stew with pig's feet!"


Jacob was like the god of wealth in their eyes, as he generously bought whatever they were selling to him. Soon both of his hands were full of groceries he had bought from all the vendors.

An old lady, who was packing the fish she had killed for him, asked him," Lad, are you here by yourself? What about your wife? Did she come with you?"

The sweet old lady didn't have the heart to tell him that he had been fooled into buying a lot of things he might not need. It was quite obvious that he was a rich man who had never been to a vegetable market.

Jacob had no idea that he had been fooled. As far as he was concerned, he had no idea of the rules of the vegetable market, so justifiably, he could be forgiven. "Eh, she is around here somewhere, shopping for something else," he said.

After he paid the old lady, Jacob was walking back to find his "wife" when he saw Emily, who, coincidentally, was also looking for him. "Emily, I am here," said Jacob.

Emily turned around, and was surprised to see the amount of bags Jacob was carrying in his hands.

'Why did he buy so many things? I just asked him to buy some mushrooms and red dates!' thought Emily with confusion.
