Tina's conviction got quashed very quickly after the courts declared that she was not guilty by reason of insanity. Therefore, she was only liable for civil compensation and not criminal liability. The judges sent her to a famed mental institution in Jingshi City.

The prosecution charged Mark as an 'accessory after the fact' for covering up and dumping the bodies for Tina. However, after Mark's shrewd attorney managed to disprove the prosecution's half-hearted evidence, Mark was acquitted of all charges.

This wouldn't be the first time in legal history that something like this had happened. A few years ago, the same attorney represented a murderer in court and managed to turn the conviction and restore his client's reputation. Compared to that, since the evidence against Mark wasn't competent enough, this case was going to be a walk in park for him.

Since most of the clients this attorney represented were morally questionable, his actions had been the subject to some controversy and criticism from fellow attorneys. While this earned him a bad reputation amongst his peers, it also gained him notoriety in the press.

With his help, Mark Tao was acquitted of all charges. However, by then it was already too late for the Tao family, as they had lost public trust within the people of the city and their stock values suffered the steepest fall in their company's illustrious history. Mark's arrest damaged the Tao company's reputation so severely that it would difficult for them to recover in such a short amount time.

Emily was furious when she heard the news. 'What?! No criminal liability because of the mental illness?! Then who is going to take the responsibility for my parents' death?! Is that it? Who wants Tina's compensation?

I am never going to get my parents back!'

Honestly, Emily could have killed Tina for a thousand times. Emily wanted to know if Tina had a heart. 'Is she even human? If she really is human, then how could she be so cruel?' she wondered.

The news of the Tao's trial did not satisfy Jacob either. Discontented, he said, "Trying to escape judgment by hiding in a mental institution? Wretched woman! Tina, I will make you regret living in this world"

The worst kind of punishment was the kind which made the victims beg for death.

After Mr. and Mrs. Bai's funeral was over...

Jacob

she said. Emily's voice was emotionless, as if she were a robot reading out of some manuscript. "I had told you this before. I can't be with you anymore," she added.

'I knew it!' he thought to himself.

Frustrated, Jacob was furious, but he stopped himself from losing his temper. "Do you know what you're talking about? I understand that the loss of your parents is hard for you to take in, so I will forget about what you've said, but you need to stop talking like that again," he said.

"Jacob, I want a break-up," she confessed.

Jacob now realized that she meant every word she had said before. Panic-stricken, he asked, "What did you just say?"

Intimidated by Jacob's eyes, Emily bit her lips. Just as she opened her mouth to speak up, Jacob pushed her against the wall. From the force her back hit the wall, she could tell that he had used all his strength.

"You better have a good excuse for me," Jacob said, and his teeth slowly gritted with anger.

Daunted, Emily couldn't breathe smoothly. She dared not to look him in the eyes, but she repeated, "I... I can't be with you anymore."

"Look at me," Jacob held her by chin, and forced her to look at him. "Why?" he asked.

His tone became stern.

"... I like you, but I just feel like it's not working out between us," she answered.

"Bullshit!" Jacob cursed. Having lost his temper, he added, "Not working out? How? Appearance? Personality? Background? Or sex? Everything was working out just perfectly.

Don't you see that we are perfect for each other? Break-up? Hah! No way!"
