The next day

It was almost afternoon when Jacob finally woke up. Much to his disappointment, when Jacob opened his eyes, he found that Emily was not in bed.

Immediately, the beating of his heart surged up. Jacob jumped out of bed at once and called out her name, "Emily? Emily?"

But there was no answer. There was only absolute stillness. Not a sound could be heard either close at hand or in the far off distance. After Jacob looked around every nook and cranny, he did not find Emily, but instead his eyes lay upon a note she had left on the table.

In a row of handsome fonts, it read: Sorry, but I can't stay. You do not have to look for me. Goodbye, Jacob!

A presentiment of unease enveloped Jacob. He thought something bad must have happened. He scrambled to look for his phone, only to find that it had been turned off. When he finally turned it back on, he was showered with countless missed call notifications popping up on the screen.

Jacob ignored all the calls and hastily called Sam's number. "Check all outbound flights for today. Buses, ships, and all the vehicles that are leaving the city. Do it now!" Jacob ordered.

Sam, however, was startled by Jacob's rambling at fist. After a few seconds of processing all the information that Jacob had poured on him, Sam asked, "Sir, what's wrong? what happened..."

Jacob's breath came in short gasps as he tried to calm down. He somehow managed to squeeze out a few words from mouth, "Emily is gone."

Technically, she ran away from him.

Jacob's answer froze Sam's nerves for a second, then he answered, "Yes, Mr. Jacob! I'll get on it now"

The moment Jacob hung up the phone, his anger started to fade away. Instead, what appeared on his face was the expression of a man utterly disappointed and disheartened.

'That explains so much. She already had her own plans.

That's why she suddenly showed her indifference to the baby and even agreed to abort it. She cares about the baby so much. I should have know something was definitely wrong. No wonder she was so needy and docile for all these days. And last night, she seemed more kind and loving. Turns out she has been planning on this the whole time, ' Jacob concluded in his mind.

Emily must have put something in the meal last night to induce Jacob to sleep so deeply that he didn't even notice her leaving in the middle of the night.

None of the servants and bodyguards in the house noticed Emily leave last night, but she wouldn't have been able to pull off something like that on her own. She must have been helped by someone!

Jacob then called Emily's phone, but there was no answer. For some reason, Jacob was not surprised by this. He quickly put on whatever clothes he could find in front of him and grabbed his keys before walking out of the door.

Jacob had to bring her back!

Needless to say, Mr. Gu had already learned about this after Jacob had put out a city wide search for Emily. However, Mr.

n his eye-brows and closed his eyes to cover the anxiety. "If you've come over here just to say these words, then you can go," he said.

Jennifer bit her lips and replied, "I thought you would need my help. After all, two hands are better than one. Don't you think so?"

However, there was no change in Jacob's facial expression. Jennifer couldn't tell whether he had heard what she had said or not.

Jennifer looked at his handsome, rugged face and said, "What if I told you that I know where to find Miss Bai?"

Suddenly, Jacob's face lit up with a glimmer of hope, taking away all the gloom and misery. "What did you just say?" he asked.

"But first, you need to get some sleep and give your body some rest..." said Jennifer. She deliberately softened her voice and continued, "I promise I'll tell you, okay?"

Jacob turned around to look her straight in the eye. "Jennifer, don't play tricks with me," he said.

"I just want you to take care of yourself!" asserted Jennifer.

"Tell me what you know!" screamed Jacob.

"If you keep this up, you will get sick very soon! How are we going to find Miss Bai then? Can you at least try and be a little more sensible and rational?" asked Jennifer.

"This is the last time I'm going to say this. Tell me what you know, now!" insisted Jacob.

There was a darkness in his eyes that seemed like it could devour all the light from the world. The depths of his eyes were like a dark and endless black hole, so intense that no matter or human could escape. With those coal-black eyes, Jacob drilled into Jennifer's head, forcing her to confess.

Intimidated, Jennifer felt a little breathless. After a few seconds, she couldn't bear Jacob's glare anymore and answered, "My people saw Miss Bai yesterday, but they did not approach her. She was in the east suburb."

As was expected, everything Jennifer said was fabricated. Moreover, even if she knew where to find Emily, she would never tell Jacob the truth.
