Jack slowly took his foot off of Andrew's hands, reluctantly, while he gritted his teeth in disbelief and anger. His glare sucked the life out of Debby. Almost spitting in disgust, he said to her, "Father? Do you think this man deserves to be anyone's father?

Do you think any child deserves to have parents like you?"

This wasn't the first time someone had asked Debby and Andrew this question, but as shameless as they were, the couple never took such comments seriously enough to reflect on it. They arrogantly assumed that they were great parents. After all, they provided Emily with a home and proper education. Was that not enough?

Blinded by their ignorance, they prided themselves in being great parents to Emily! Though their conjecture was far from the reaches of truth and reality. The fact that they wanted to cut ties with Emily, was incredibly ironic, because it was Emily who should have cut ties with them a long time ago. She did not deserve such preposterous parents!

The doctor rushed into the ward, as soon as he heard the bell ring. "What's wrong? Is there something wrong with the patient?" he asked and looked at Jack with concern.

"She was injected with some kind of unknown liquid!" answered Jack. Jack took his eyes off Andrew and rushed towards Emily. He picked up the perfusion tube from the floor and pointed it to the doctor, "I'm not sure whether the liquid has been pumped into her system or not, but there might be some residue in this tube. Please have it checked now!"

The doctor took the tube and arranged for a full physical examination for Emily at once.

Meanwhile, Debby and Andrew took this opportunity to abscond with the needle and disappear from the crime scene.

Concerned for Emily's safety, Jack decided not to go after them, and stay back just to make sure that Emily was not in danger. Catching the Bai perpetrators wasn't his priority, Emily was... As for Debby and Andrew, Jack decided to tell Emily the whole truth once she had regained consciousness.

After a few dreadful hours, the doctor approached Jack with Emily's test results.

"Good news! There is nothing wrong with the patient. Maybe it's because you pulled out the tube just in time, so the toxic liquid was not successfully injected into her bloodstream. We tested the residue we found in the tube, and it showed traces of highly addictive drugs that may have been fatal due to the patient's already weakened state," the doctor laid it all out to Jack.

Jack was relieved to hear that Emily was not in any danger, but he was baffled by the doctors reports. His eyes were wide and skittish, as he looked at the doctor and said, "Got it. Thank you and please keep monitoring her status."

Why did Mr. and Mrs. Bai want to inject

promises, because he knew he had no intentions of keeping. After all, he loved her so much, so how was he to tolerate not seeing her again?

Jack walked out of the ward, but stayed close by, vigilant and alarmed. Once he left, Emily, casually asked the nurse who had come to check up on her, "Miss, did you see my parents? They are a couple in their forties."

Although, the nurse didn't see Emily's parents, she had heard about what happened from her colleagues. However, gossiping in the workplace was strictly prohibited, so she only told Emily what she thought was safe to disclose.

"Yes, I heard that they were in a heated conversation with Mr. Jack," said the nurse.

"Really? They were here? Why did they quarrel with Mr. Jack?" she asked. Puzzled, Emily steadied her breathing, trying to clear her mind. Her gut was telling her not to believe what Jack had said.

'They are my real parents. They've been there for me ever since I was a child. I may not be their biological daughter, but they would not hurt me. Right?' Emily thought. She was bothered by the uncertainty of her thoughts.

"I'm not really sure what happened, but the other nurses said that the doctor had found something bad in your perfusion tube, which may have led to the quarrel between Mr. Jack and your parents. You can ask your attending doctor about this. He is in charge of your care," said the nurse.

Soon after, Emily went to the doctor's office, but she wasn't able to see him even though she waited for him there for a long time. She decided to return home with her medication, but she couldn't stop thinking about what Jack had said to her.

'Jack must be lying to me again! I shouldn't trust a single word that comes out of his mouth! Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Never again, Jack!' Emily said to herself.
