Jacob and Emily left the venue together, and neither of them spoke one word along the way.

When they got to the parking lot, Jacob suddenly grabbed Emily's hand and took her into his car. "Let me drive you back," he said.

"I have a car, and I can drive home by myself," Emily refused, as she still had some misgivings about Jacob's intentions.

Jacob was a dominating man and he could not tolerate being refused by his woman. He fastened the safety belt for her and said, "The road is a little rough. Sit still and don't move."

As soon the words had left his mouth, he locked the car doors.

"You..." Emily said angrily, as she struggled but could not open the car door. She slapped at the window with rage, demanding him to open the door.

Jacob sat in the driver's seat and fastened his seat belt. He looked into her eyes with tenderness and said, "I just want to spend some time with you, Emily."

Suddenly, Emily fell silent. She looked away from Jacob's eyes and wondered what to do next. She couldn't let Jacob drive her home.

For some reason, Emily didn't want him to meet Beryl. Perhaps it was because she thought that since Beryl was Jack's daughter it would be best if Jacob did not find out about her.

Beryl's safety was all that mattered and that was why Emily was afraid of Jacob seeing her.

Emily wasn't willing to leave anything to chance.

All the while, Emily did not know that Jacob, had already seen Beryl with her the other night, and figured out that Beryl was their daughter. More importantly, she did not know that Jacob was happy and excited to know that their child was still alive. If Jack had not meddled and prevented Jacob from finding out about Beryl's real identity, he would have known that Beryl was Emily's daughter a lot sooner.

When Jacob saw Beryl's picture, he remembered that she was the special, little girl he had already met twice just recently. Once, in his heart, where there was only darkness and despair, now was the light of love and hope burning bright as ever.

Nothing in the world could stop him from seeing Beryl. Regardless of whether he knew that she was his daughter or not, their paths were destined to intertwine.

Silence befell the car and made the air unbearable between them. Emily scrambled in her head, trying to come up with a suitable excuse to get away from Jacob, but her mind was all over the place. Stressed, a sudden fit of dizziness overwhelmed her. "Jacob, please slow down. Don't drive so fast, " she insisted.

"Okay," Jacob replied, and cast a short glance at her. "Are you hungry?" he asked.

Emily sensed an oddity in Jacob's facial expression. Perhaps, it was the short flashes of light on his face from the cars that passed by. "What's wrong, are you feeling okay?" she asked, sounding concerned.

"It's nothing," Jacob replied eagerly, as he raised his lips and smiled. But before long, his smile faded away and was replaced by a serious expression.

Emily realized that something was wrong, and her face contorted with confusion. "Jacob, why are you still speeding up?" she

e braking system suddenly returned to normal. By some miracle, the car stopped just in time in front of the railings. Under the bridge, was a cold, deep river, its current deceptively swift and strong. If they had fallen into the river, no one would have been able to find their bodies from their watery grave.

Overwhelmed with fear, she was knocked unconscious. She buried her face in Jacob's arms, hiding away from the world, unable to see or hear anything. She leaned on Jacob, motionlessly, like a statue.

Jacob squinted one eye open and then fluttered both eyes wide open, shaking in utter disbelief. Stunned, he sat there in awe, unable to understand just how they had managed to narrowly escape with their lives. Soon, he pulled himself together and carried Emily out of the car. When he laid her down on a safe spot, he patted Emily on the face.

"Emily, open your eyes. We are safe now..." he said.

Emily did not respond. She stayed nestled in his loving arms, eyelids sewn shut. It was as if the color had disappeared from her face, and something had sucked the life out of her.

Jacob pressed his lips to hers, and quickly administered CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. A few minutes later, Emily began to cough violently, gasping for air. Eventually, her breathing stabilized and she calmed herself down, but she was still suffering from shock and PTSD.

"We... We..." she stammered.

"We've made it alive. There's no need to be afraid anymore..." Jacob comforted.

"Jacob…"

"I'm here," Jacob replied gently. He wrapped his loving arms around her shaking body, giving her a sense of security within his embrace.

Emily finally came back to her senses as the tears started materializing in her eyes. A few minutes ago, she was sure that she was going to die, even though she didn't want to die at all. She hadn't settled old scores yet, and most importantly, she had a daughter and the family members of the Lu clan she didn't want to leave behind...

She didn't want... Jacob to die.

Fortunately, they were both alive.
