Anne was taken aback by the coldness in Victor's eyes. Her eyes shifted to the side and became glazed with a glassy layer of tears. As she blinked, they dripped from her eyelids and slid down her cheeks.

"Anne..." Flustered, Victor murmured, seeing the tears on her face. The usual coldness on his expression was replaced by a sense of helplessness so quickly as if Anne had unknowingly flicked a switch in Victor's heart.

"You're very mean," said Anne, feeling wronged. Her eyes and the tip of her nose reddened with shame as she lowered her head and continued crying, like a weak little kid that had been bullied at school.

"I'm sorry," Victor apologized immediately. The sight of Anne breaking down into tears broke Victor's icy heart to pieces. It didn't matter to him whether he was right or wrong anymore. The next second he pulled her into his arms and said,"I shouldn't have said that. I am sorry. It was my fault. Please, don't cry."

'How could I forget that she's not strong enough to handle harsh words? And she's not strong enough to bear such behavior from me, ' he thought.

Resting her head on his chest, Anne grasped this opportunity and said,"I want some strawberry cakes."

Victor's attitude softened as he said,"Okay, I'll get you some, later."

"I want two," she insisted.

"No..." answered Victor.

Anne sniffled into his sleeves and began crying again at Victor's words.

"Well, all right, as you wish," agreed Victor. He thought it was more important to calm her down first, so he promised without delay.

Having achieved her goals, Anne wiped the tears off her face at once. Her tear smudged face made her look like a tender kitten.

"..." Meanwhile, Emily watched and listened to the two of them compassionately, as they argued and then made up within minutes.

Finally, turning his attention to Emily, Victor sneered and said,"Emily, you've tried countless times to escape, but you've failed every time. I think you should give up on trying."

Emily frowned, and asked gloomily,"Did you install a signal jammer on me?"

"Yes. I won't let you escape. The whole region is under my control, so I suggest you stop wasting efforts on trying to contact Jacob. Guards, take her away,"

said Victor, as he picked Anne up in his arms and walked away without looking back at Emily.

Escorted by several men, Emily bit her lip and followed Victor silently, desperate and powerless.

After they walked back into the hospital, Victor quickly sent Anne to doctors for a complete check-up. When a doctor told Victor that Anne was in good health, he finally put his worries

ected, David heard Jacob's anxious and nervous voice. He had intended to humiliate Jacob again, but considering Jacob's disheartened voice, David suddenly changed his mind. "Call me 'dear brother', and I will tell you the news," he said to Jacob.

"Dear brother," Jacob said, without any hesitation. When it came to Emily, even if David would ask Jacob to call him "dear grandpa", Jacob would have done it in a heartbeat.

Jacob believed that his dignity was nothing compared to Emily's safety.

When David heard Jacob's answer, he was so astonished that he almost dropped the phone to the floor. David never expected that Jacob would do such a ridiculous thing, considering what a smug person he was.

"Where is Emily? Did you hide her in your place?" Jacob suddenly directed the question at David, when he remembered how he and Emily helped Rita leave David before. He thought maybe David hated him for that and took away Emily as revenge.

David quickly denied the accusation; he said,"You have a very imaginative mind, but I have no reason to kidnap Emily. After all, Rita won't come back to me even if I kidnap Emily."

David raised his voice when he thought of Rita, without even knowing.

"Stop your nonsense. Do you have any clue about Emily or not?" asked Jacob.

"I am not sure but some of my men spotted her in M Country once. I know you have searched all around Z Country. Have you ever thought of the possibility that she might have been in a foreign country?" Without further ado, David told all he knew about Emily's whereabouts to Jacob.

It was truly a coincidence since David got the news about Emily while he was actually trying to locate Rita. Prior to that, he wasn't even aware that Emily had gone missing.
