Over the past few years, it had become difficult to deal with Jacob, let alone to find out what he was feeling. Sam, afraid to do anything wrong, just wanted to get away as soon as possible.

Sam only needed a green light to make up his mind. He slammed his foot on the accelerator and soon the car was speeding off.

Beryl's face disappeared in front of the car window and Jacob didn't have time to say anything else. He felt dazed because his heart was aching and he didn't know why.

What was wrong with him?

What was it with that little girl that seemed familiar and at the same time, made him ache in his heart?

Sam thought he had made a good decision and breathed a sigh of relief. Until, he realized that the atmosphere was feeling heavy and true enough, when he looked up at the rearview mirror, he saw that Jacob's face had darkened.

Sam felt his insides turning and couldn't help but wonder if he'd made the wrong call.

"Sir, should I turn around?" Sam asked in a tentative tone.

"No need, just keep driving," Jacob said blankly, rubbing his eyes with one hand and the other placed on his chest, feeling his heart beat rapidly.

This was ridiculous! What was this feeling? He thought his heart had stopped beating a long time ago. The fire that Emily had set in his heart died along with her burning everything else it left behind. Since then, his life was barren and empty. He was practically a zombie. But now he couldn't believe that his heart's beating was actually quickening.

'It's just because she has the same eyes as Emily, Jacob, stop indulging yourself. The day Emily died, you died too. You're just an empty body now.

You have no right to live happily, ' he reminded himself.

"Okay, Mr. Gu," Sam replied. He opened his mouth wanting to advise Jacob to rest but he shut it close when he saw the look on Jacob's face. All he could do now was do as he was told.

Since Emily died, Jacob was nothing but a working robot. He put all his energy and time on his work. In these four years, he'd rarely gone home.

But he was not a robot - he couldn't work day in and day out without even resting. Because if he did, his body would give up on him. Sam was at a loss as to what he should do and just hoped that someone could come and talk some sense into Jacob and perhaps, even give him some joy.

Meanwhile, in the other car, Emily was kneeling and looking for the cake box that fell. Fortunately, she was able to find it right away.

Emily recalled that Beryl was talking to someone earlier so she handed the box to Beryl and asked, "Who were you talking to?"

B

mentioned Emily to anyone, Jennifer knew very well that he missed Emily all the time. This woman was like a scar in Jacob's life but instead of healing as time passed by, it just kept decaying inside.

Jennifer abhorred Emily so much. Even in her death, she still had Jacob on her chains. She was still the woman in his heart. It wasn't fair.

Jennifer was fuming of jealousy and hatred. She had so much more to say to him but when she saw the look on Jacob's face, she bit her tongue instead. "All right, take care of yourself," she agreed.

Jennifer couldn't believe that until now, she'd lost to a dead woman. How funny and ironic that was.

Jacob didn't respond - he just kept his eyes on the document he was reading. That itself was already a message - he didn't have to say another word to make it clearer.

Jennifer squinted her eyes and turned around and left hesitantly.

It was probably the most difficult thing she ever had to do - let Jacob go. He'd lost all the life and spirit in him - it had died along with Emily.

Now that Jennifer had left, Jacob was the only one left in the office. He looked through his documents but he couldn't focus, he was feeling restless and unable to settle himself down.

Eventually, he put them back in the drawer, his hands were quivering as he took out a photo. It was taken around Christmas of that year. Emily had it with her for her keepsake and it was later found in the plane crash.

Jacob just kept his eyes on the photo - he felt the pain ringing throughout his aching body and his body was frozen at the same time as if all the blood had stopped flowing.

The seasons kept changing outside but in Jacob's heart it snowed all year round. He felt as if he was in hell.
