Emily left the hotel by herself and took a taxi back to Tyrone Mansion. On her way back, she wept silently.

After returning to her room, she went to the bathroom and took off her clothes. Then she turned on the hot shower and stood under it. The hot water kissed her body, soon filling the bathroom with steam.

Emily slumped into a state of torpor as if nothing could cheer her up. The hot water flowed through her whole body, scouring every inch of her skin.

Emily was a traditional woman, and she had thought that she would be committed to Jacob only. However, after being tricked by Jack into believing that she had sex with him, her world came crashing down around her. She felt eternally stained, as if nothing in the world could wash away the filth off of her body.

"We both know that the thing Jacob hates the most is betrayal, be it mental or physical. If he finds out that you've slept with me, do you think he will still love you?" Jack's words reverberated in her ears. Every word was like a hammer hitting at Emily's heart.

Emily's mind scrambled, wondering when Jacob would come back, and how she would explain to him, and what she could do to deal with all of this.

Emily kept washing herself over and over until her skin turned red due to the heat of the hot water. When her body went numb, she went out of the bathroom and slowly put on her clothes.

Although she didn't want to break up with Jacob, Jack blackmailed her with a picture he had on his phone that could easily cause a misunderstanding between her and Jacob. Jack threatened to send it to Jacob if she did not comply with his demands. Moreover, since she couldn't come up with any reasonable explanation to give to Jacob, she decided to hide away in shame before he was back.

Emily knew that running away from her problems would only make things worse, but at this moment, she just wanted to lock herself away from the rest of the world. She didn't want Jacob to know about the horrendous incident she had suffered.

After taking a bath, Emily packed up her clothes and moved back to her previous apartment. While she stayed there, she did not receive any calls from Jacob, so she assumed that he must have been too angry to call her, but on the other hand, she also felt relieved.

Although Emily left Tyrone Mansion quietly and there were only a handful of people who knew this, soon Jack learned about it from an informer, as did the Tao clan and Emily's foster parents.

Andrew and Debby were the first two people who came to visit her.

After all, they had raised her. Emily could not go against her conscience to shut the door on her foster parents. She opened the door and let them in.

"Emily, what happened between you and Mr. Gu? Why did you move out of his house? Did you have a fight with him?" Debby asked anxiously. Knowing that Tina showed no inclination to take care of her and her husband, made Debby sad, but she never complained about her biological daughter. Instead, she changed her mind to focus all her attention towards Emily, showing her care and love.

As strange as it were, she didn't sincerely repent and earnestly reform herself. From the bottom of her heart, she only cared about how much

mily sank into despair. Hope. Life. Happiness. All gone. Eradicated. Once where there was light, now only the ghost of imagination remained.

Pain throbbed so violently around Emily's skull that she wondered why it didn't just crack open. At the same time, she put herself in a quandary and did not know what to do and how to come up with a solution.

This night was doomed to be a sleepless one for several people.

Emily could not go to sleep, nor could Jack.

Jack drove to Emily's apartment and parked his car downstairs. He stayed inside, smoking quietly and focused his eyes at Emily's bedroom window, still and motionless.

Jack was under the impression that he could see through the glass and concrete to find Emily's soft figure. However, it was a pathetic way of deceiving himself.

Jack knew that Emily was suffering from despair and melancholia. His heart ached for her, but he also felt somewhat delighted. Although Emily didn't want to be with him at this point, it was better than her being with Jacob.

Jack acknowledged that he had done something villainous and devious. Regardless of what his goals were, he did not achieve them through fair measures. He rationalized his actions on the basis that the ends justified the means.

'I don't regret any of it. If I had to do it all over again, I would do the same thing.

Just as long as I can tear her apart from Jacob's arm and bring her back to me, I am willing to pay the price, even if the price is my conscience.

I have sacrificed so much for Emily. I love her very much, even more than Jacob. Why have I not received anything in return yet? It's not fair, ' thought Jack.

When Jack thought of Jacob, and how he had stolen the girl of his dreams from under his nose, his eyes grew dark, thick with jealousy and hatred. But soon his thin lips slowly twisted upwards with malice.

'Jacob, do you still think you're the all-mighty bastion of the Gu clan?

I wonder how it must feel to rot away in a foreign jail, unable to return to your home, your kingdom. I am going to take your place and trample you under my foot! I swear it!' Jack vowed in his heart.
