Emily crumpled the newspaper into a ball due to confusion and frustration. Her heart was beating fast. She felt her breath quickening. She decided to sit down on a bench for a while to regain her composure.

The feeling of having people disgusted at her made her feel so down and ashamed.

Despite the strange looks being thrown at her, she mustered all her strength to go to Jacob's office. When she finally reached the door, suddenly all that courage faded away. She only put her hand on the doorknob, feeling anxious.

How could she face Jacob now?

She stood in front of the office door until her legs went numb. Then she raised her head as the door was opened from the inside.

"Emily? What brings you here?" Jacob asked. He became concerned when he saw how pale she looked. He knew something was wrong.

"Jacob..." Emily spoke hoarsely, trying to stop her tears. But she couldn't help it. She let out a loud sob and tears rained down on her face. "I-I'm sorry..."

Jacob felt his heart clutch as he saw her tears. He pulled her into his arms and hugged her tightly. "Emily, you silly girl. You don't need to apologize," he said, pulling her inside his office.

"I-I'm so sorry. I already found out about it. N-Now all of Jingshi City knows I-I am pregnant and y-you're not the father... I-I'm so sorry. I dragged you into this," Emily sobbed guiltily, looking like a broken doll.

"Shh...It's not your fault," Jacob comforted her, caressing her back. "It's all the reporter's fault. They chose the wrong man to mess with. Don't think of it anymore. I'll take care of it, alright?"

Emily buried her face in his chest, and apologized again, "I'm sorry, Jacob. I'm really sorry..."

She knew that Jacob felt even worse.

"Shh... Trust me. I will find a way." Jacob kept comforting her, holding her tighter. His mind was racing with so many questions.

He couldn't help but wonder. Who were the journalists that decide to have this rumor released to the public? Reports wouldn't be able to write a detailed article about it unless they got a tip from a reliable source or probably paid a hefty sum of money to do so.

Who could be the root cause of this?

Jacob smirked as he thought of a plan. Maybe there was a way he could fix this, and probably trap the journalist who wrote the article. "Don't worry. I know what to do," he said confidently. Emily looked at Jacob questioningly as he took out his cellphone, "Sam, tell the press that we're going to hold a press conference tomorrow. 2PM." "Yes, sir," Sam replied and wasted no time contacting media outlets regarding the press conference.

The next day, the city's major journalists hurried to get their way in the office building. The press conference

killed in exchange of a large sum of money.

Now that the press conference was over, the journalists decided to leave one by one. It was time for them to go back to their offices and publish about today's conference in newspapers and media portals.

Suddenly Jacob stood up and said, "Wait a minute."

The journalists stopped at once. Then they found that the place of the press conference was completely blocked. Without Jacob's permission, they couldn't get out.

They got anxious and wondered what Jacob was going to do.

Was he going to take out his anger on them? No one knew.

What he said next surprised them.

"Since all of you came all the way, kindly for a few more minutes. I want to make an announcement," Jacob said with a satisfied smile.

What? What was he going to announce?

Whispers and murmurs filled the room. All were wondering what was next.

As they were anxious to hear the announcement, he spoke, "Miss Emily Bai, come out. I know you're there."

His eyes fell at the woman by the corner of the room. She anxiously walked towards the podium, with armed bodyguards surrounding her.

Emily Bai was here!

All the journalists felt surprised, as they had thought that Emily was a cowardly person and dared not come here. They watched her every footstep in awe.

Emily didn't expect to be recognized. She just wanted to take a peek at what was happening. With Jacob clearing up the rumors about them, she couldn't help but feel touched by his gesture.

He could have turned her away, cast her out but she was still standing by his side!

He even admitted that the child was his. How he had sacrificed so many things just for her sake. Why did her heart throb so painfully? Was it because she felt so undeserving of his endless love? Maybe that was true. She did not deserve him.
