Emily's identity as Mr. and Mrs. Tao's daughter had set the Internet on fire, gathering the attention of all netizens.

"Wow! How can that be? The news of Emily's dating Jacob alone was enough to make me envious, and now with her parentage she'll become a hot sensation on the Internet again!"

"She is so lucky! Now the ugly duckling has transformed into a lovely swan. Soon she will marry Jacob and unite two of the most powerful families in the city!"

"Oh! How I envy her!"

"..."

As a matter of fact, Abbott was deliberately spreading the news so as to put pressure on Jacob. 'Jacob will not be able to keep Emily at his home, ' Abbott thought wisely, 'when everyone else learns that Emily is my daughter.'

To some extent, Abbott had succeeded in getting what he wanted. Although, Jacob tried hard to keep the secret from Emily, the news still found its way to Emily's ears.

The moment Emily heard the news, her mind got muddled completely.

'What does Mr. Tao mean by making that declaration? "Emily"? Is there another "Emily" in Jingshi City? No... It can't be me!'

While still in a state of both shock and doubt, Emily suddenly got a call from Bess, who at last managed to bypass Jacob.

Staring at the number, puzzled, Emily accidentally answered the call, and a female voice came from the other end of the phone, at once.

"Hello. Is that you Emily? This is...I..." The voice on the phone sounded, cautious, as if she was nervous of speaking with Emily.

"I know who you are, Mrs. Bess," Emily said, trying to make her voice sound calm, even though she was biting her lips tightly. "What can I do for you?" asked Emily.

Bess's voice paused for a while before she continued, "Have you read the news?"

"... Yes," answered Emily.

"It is true. You are my daughter. I know that we owe you an explanation for all of these years, but..." Bess said, as her voice trembled. However, as she went on, her voice turned softer and gentler like a cool breeze.

Bess's words, however, did not register on Emily's mind, because Emily was completely floored when she heard that she was Bess's daughter.

In truth, Emily, at first, was very sceptical about what was written in the news. However, when she heard Bess's words on the phone, she had no choice but to accept the truth.

But she was still confused.

Debby had told Emily that she was an orphan th

d her, but on the other hand, even if she didn't like anyone from the Tao family, she couldn't just throw away her kinship with them.

Emily just wanted to figure out what had happen more than twenty years ago.

Jacob raised his eyebrows, as if he had seen through Emily; he said, "It was just like what Debby told you, even though she didn't give you every detail. For her own benefits, she planned to exchange her daughter for the baby of Tao family. And after she succeeded, she kept the secret for more than twenty years."

"So she fooled me again," Emily murmured.

An eerie light flashed in Jacob's eyes and then vanished as he timely stopped himself from telling Emily that he also played a role in Debby's lie. After all, Jacob detested Debby so much that he did not feel guilty for making her take the fall for him.

While Emily was lost in her thoughts, her phone rang and a message showed up on the screen.

Emily took the phone to read the message, and found that the message was from Bess telling Emily the address of their meeting.

Jacob's look darkened as he threw away her phone and began to kiss Emily again. "I won't allow you to see her," he commanded.

"Oh... You are so bossy!" complained Emily.

"Whatever you say, I won't allow it. Even if you want to go," Jacob paused, with cold light glistering in his eyes, before he gave an evil smile and said, "I'm afraid that you won't be able to struggle away from my arms."

All of sudden, his words reminded Emily of the day when she failed to meet Debby. 'It's happening again!' she cried in her head.
