The atmosphere in the room was friendly and pleasant. But not for Jennifer. She had been throwing disgusted glances at the couple in front of her.

After the meal, Jacob paid for the bill. "It was great meeting you both!" Emily smiled, shaking hands with them. Finally, Jacob wrapped an arm around her waist and led her away from them.

Jennifer wanted to go after them but Magee grabbed her shoulder, stopping her tracks.

"Do you really have to embarrass yourself like that?" His eyes were full of concern for Jennifer.

Jennifer got shrugged off his hand and spoke in annoyance, "Aw, shut up! Have you ever understood how I feel?"

Magee sighed deeply in defeat. He couldn't say anything to comfort her.

The rain was pouring down hard while they had dinner. The couple wondered why the rain stopped the moment they went out of the restaurant. The smell of rain was still fresh in their noses.

Unfortunately, there was a flood which reached until the ankles.

Emily wondered how she would be able to walk through the water. She might be sick and her baby would too. She began taking off her shoes when Jacob suddenly crouched in front of her.

"Hop on!" Jacob spoke.

Emily gasped at his actions, "But the water reaches until your ankles! Are you sure on what you're going to do?"

Her words sounded silly to Jacob, so he smiled, "Of course. That's why I am doing this.

If you step on cold water, you might get sick. And from what I know, pregnant women are more exposed to diseases."

Emily was touched at his gesture. She obliged, hopping on his broad back and wrapped her arms around his neck. "Jacob, You are such a sweet person."

Jacob managed to stand up with Emily on his back. An amused smile grew on his lips, "You just knew about that now?"

"Well, I know you are a sweet person but I just feel like saying it out loud right now, you know. Don't be so cocky." She rested her chin on his shoulder. "I feel like I am a princess riding on a white horse."

"Then I am your noble steed, Princess," Jacob chuckled.

Emily couldn't help but bend down and give his cheek a small peck.

Jacob felt giddy inside but still managed to hold Emily steadily on his back. He said, "Hey, cut it out or else we'll fall down!" He let out a hearty laugh.

She was just so charming that he couldn't resist her!

Emily followed what Jacob said. She quietly lay on his back and looked down at ground.

The water indeed reached his ankles. The hem of his pants got w

t.

Jacob became a laughing stock and was turned into a meme in Jingshi City. On the other hand, Emily was labeled in many ways such as "cock sucker", "slut", "mythic bitch".

There was even a meme like... "This is Emily. Emily cheated on Jacob. Don't be a bitch like Emily"

The public backlash and humiliation was too extreme for Emily.

Fortunately, Emily wasn't aware of such words being used to label her. Jacob forbade her from using any electronics. Besides, Emily didn't like reading any newspapers. Jacob wanted to hide these slanderous words away from her but sadly, it was already out of his reach.

She was bound to find it out sooner or later.

Recently, Emily felt eyes were all on her. They would avoid her like some sort of a plague and whisper something to their selves.

She was curious on what was happening. She wanted to ask what happened. Sadly, other people would quicken their pace so they wouldn't have to talk to her.

Strange.

Then she noticed a torn newspaper in the dustbin near the Gu Consortium. It also occurred to her that there weren't any newspaper being sent into the office recently.

It was none of her business anyways.

When she glanced at the newspaper, Jacob's name in bold print caught her attention. And her name was also there too!

When she read the whole sentence, her face grew pale and her hands clutched the newspaper tightly, trembling.

Who could have written this? Who? And why?

Emily even began to regret that she picked up the newspaper. She felt that the world threw a large burden upon her shoulders.

"Jacob..." she sadly muttered, "He must have known it for a while..."
