The next morning, Debby and Andrew came to visit Emily in her apartment. They knocked on her door as if nothing had ever happened.

Ideally, they would have laid low for a few days, but Mark pressured them so much with fear and greed that they had to come for Emily again.

To their surprise, Emily opened the door this time without hesitation, even though she shot them an unfriendly glance, and said, "Dad, Mom, what are you doing here?"

"Emily, I'm glad to see you. We're sorry and we hope you don't blame us for what happened before. I've brought you some breakfast. Go ahead and eat it, before it gets cold," said Debby.

Puzzled, Emily looked at the warm breakfast in Debby's hand and said, "Sure. Just leave it there. Thanks."

The couple were expecting a different kind of response from Emily, so they studied the dark beads of her eyes, doubtfully suspecting whether Emily knew what happened last night in the hospital.

'Surely Jack would have told her everything.

But it seems like she had no idea whatsoever!' Debby and Andrew thought.

Debby said tentatively, "Emily, when you were at the hospital last night, your father and I went to see you, but Jack went berserk and kicked us out... Did he tell you anything about that?"

"No," answered Emily. Emily hoped that Debby would willingly explain what had happened, and as long as her explanation was coherent and reasonable, she would believe them over Jack. "What's wrong? What happened?" she asked.

Emily's uncertainty relieved Debby's worries. Unperturbed, Debby confidently continued weaving her lies, "No, we just had an argument because Jack wasn't letting us see you. In the end we decided to avoid making a scene at the hospital and left."

Debby's eyes widened with feigned concern as she said, "Emily, you need to be more mindful of your health in the future..."

Strangely enough, Debby's words raced a shiver through her instead of making her feel better. Anxious, trickles of sweat ran down the back of her neck.

"Got it. Now if you don't mind, I'd like to get some rest, please," said Emily. Impatient, Emily interrupted Debby before she could finish and shooed them away.

However, Debby stood her ground and said, "We will leave once

stead he just clenched his fists and said, "Looks like you've found out about what happened. I told you that I would never hurt you."

Emily blinked repeatedly, forcing herself to hold her tears at bay. "You must be really happy, right? You were right all along! Everything you said was right and now I have no one else in this world I can trust anymore. What else do you want to take from me?" she said.

"I don't want to take anything from you. I just don't want you to get hurt," he replied. Jack looked at her affectionately and continued, "Emily, please try to trust me one more time, okay?"

Jack's eyes were like a perfect spring sky, clear and never-ending, as if they could take away all her grief and sadness with just one glance.

"No," she refused. Emily shook her head slowly and moved away from Jack. "You are not worthy of my trust. No one is worthy of my trust," she said, assertively.

'Except Jacob.

But that's no longer an option, ' Emily contemplated. Not too long ago, Emily had reluctantly broken up with Jacob, and she hadn't heard from him since then. Perhaps that was the end of their relationship...

There was no one to accompany Emily anymore. Not even the wind as it howled and screeched past, leaving her to grieve alone.

"You are thinking of him, right?" asked Jack. Suddenly, he leaned closer to her...

Emily pushed him away immediately and stood up. "So what if I am? I never wanted to break up with him. You gave me no choice!" she said.
