Jacob became a little annoyed. He ignored Emily's words and drove on. "What's wrong?" he asked.

Emily turned to look at him and replied seriously, "I want you to pull over. Let's take turns to drive."

At first, Jacob thought Emily wanted to get out of the car, that's why he didn't believe what she had said. "Do you mean that you want to take turns with me?" he asked doubtfully.

"Do you think you are fit to be driving in this condition? Even if you don't care about your own safety, I care about mine."

"Well, I'll take your advice then," he answered. A tiny smile escaped Jacob's mouth, thinking that Emily still cared about him. He pulled over to the side of the road and switched seats with Emily. "I trust you," he said to Emily.

Emily didn't respond. She looked straight ahead and started the car skillfully.

Jacob looked at her tenderly and found a sense of harmony they once had again. He smiled and asked, "Where are you taking me?"

A sudden rush of anger surged up within Emily. 'How stupid is Jacob! Why did he attend the cocktail party just to get himself in trouble, especially when he's injured already? He is just looking for trouble.

How could he be so childish?" she wondered.

Emily's complaints were almost at the tip of her tongue, but she held back her anger. "Hospital," she answered, with a straight face.

"I don't want to go there," he said.

"It's not up to you," she replied.

For the first time since he knew her, Jacob felt the strength and determination in her tone. She had changed a lot over the past four years. She was not the gentle, soft-spoken girl she once used to be.

Whatever! She was just who she was. That was enough for Jacob.

Jacob earnestly prayed that the road ahead would be long or even endless so that he could stay with her like this until the end of time.

"Emily," he whispered her name.

Emily heard his calling but she didn't react to him. She pressed her lips, waiting for him to continue.

"I am sorry," he said.

"Never mind," Emily answered casually, pretending not to care. In truth, she gripped the steering wheel firmly, sensing a sharp pain in her heart.

Jacob looked paler than before.

He thought that Emily would vent her anger at him or at least blame him. He would have felt better if she did. Anything was better than the dreadful silence that surrounded them. However, Emily's answer broke his heart. The words "never mind" formed a deep rift between them.

Never mind. Emily meant it literally. She h

e a full fledged man now, and still you don't have any respect for me," said Master Gu.

"Ah! I will never respect a man like you. You don't deserve it at all," Jacob answered, as he looked straight into Mr. Gu's eyes. This old man tried so hard to preserve his dignity with the support of a walking stick, but his true self was revealed by his stooped shoulders.

Mr. Gu was getting really old now.

"What exactly do you want from me? Does the power I've given to you over the years not satisfy you anymore?" Mr. Gu asked.

"Do you mean the power that you can withdraw from me at any time?" Jacob sneered. In truth, Mr. Gu has always had his guard up against Jacob.

Mr. Gu coughed and replied, "That's because you are always going against my will."

Jacob's wounds also dragged a cough up his throat, but he forced it back and said, "I am not your puppet."

"There's no point in arguing amongst ourselves any more," Mr. Gu said and coughed hard. He took a swig of tea, trying to relieve his cough, and then continued, "I want you to do me a favor. You don't need to refuse me immediately. I am quite sure that you will accept it after I tell you the details."

"Just tell me the details," Jacob set his sharp eyes on Mr. Gu.

"Do you remember that one of your brothers got lost 20 years ago?" he asked Jacob.

"Do you know where he is?" Jacob asked, wide-eyed and anxious.

"Yes," he replied. Mr. Gu liked talking with man like Jacob, sharp and straightforward. That was the characteristic every clever man should be equipped with. "As long as you help me to successfully merge A Group in A Country, I will turn him over to you immediately," Mr. Gu added.
