"Mom…" Beryl was overwhelmed when she saw the sad look on Emily's face. She reached out her small hands to wipe off the tears streaming down Emily's face. "Mommy, please don't cry. I'll be a good girl from now on," she promised.

This just made Emily cry harder. As she held Beryl's tiny body against hers, she felt worse because she felt like she wasn't a good enough mother to her.

"Mom, I'm sorry. Please don't be sad."

"Beryl, it's not your fault. It's mine." Emily wiped off her tears,"I promise I'll spend more time with you from now on. All right?"

Beryl nodded her head and tears welling up in her eyes,"Okay."

They went to bed, but Emily, with Beryl in her arms, couldn't sleep. She didn't fall asleep until it was almost dawn because she had a lot on her mind.

So the next morning, Emily didn't wake up in time so she had to hurry going to the office.

Beryl stood at the door, still half awake. "Mom, be careful. Don't run!"

Emily's heart melted at this that she almost wanted to bring her to work today. But she realized that now that Jack knew where she worked, he might ambush her in her office and thus, see Beryl.

"Okay, just wait mom here at home. The tutor will be here soon. Be a good girl for mommy?"

"Okay," she said smiling.

Emily bent down and kissed Beryl's cheek. It was still difficult for Emily to leave Beryl even though it was for work. She found it hard to be apart from Beryl even if it was just for a minute. Maybe, she'd feel better later on.

As expected, another bouquet was waiting for her when she arrived at the office. The roses were pink today instead of red and they looked like they were freshly picked.

She didn't even give it a second glance as she dumped it into the trash bin.

Her colleagues started to notice this and couldn't help but come up with their assumptions - they started to gossip about her.

"She just got here and someone's already sending her flowers?"

"What's her deal? Why is she rejecting him?" Her flowers are always so be

y that he recognized from before. He was just doing how he'd won her over before but it wasn't working anymore.

"Thank you."

Even though they barely said anything, Jack was still able to get some use out of it.

One of them suddenly asked,"Jack, don't you think that Miss Lu looks like someone? She seems familiar to me."

Jack felt his heart pounding and pretended to act casual,"Really? Who?"

Did she know something?

"Emily..." The woman blurted out but when she saw the look on Jack's face,"Jack... Are you pursuing her as a replacement for Emily? Because if that's true then I won't help you anymore."

To her, Emily was completely different from Miss Lu. They may have looked like one another but they were definitely two different people.

So if Jack was just pursuing Miss Lu as a replacement for Emily then it would be completely unfair.

Jack immediately loosened up. "Don't worry, I like her for who she is not as anyone else,"

he said in a serious tone. When it came to Emily, Jack's eyes always softened and he was always sincere.

There were so many people who looked like Emily. But he wouldn't even so much as look at them because they weren't Emily. He liked Emily because she was who she was. He would always love her even though she went by a different name and identity now.

He would love her forever.
