Jacob immediately stopped the news from spreading out, but there was nothing he could do to stop the heated discussion on the Internet. Almost every person in the city had found out about Beryl.

Emily, worried and desperate, called Jacob and asked him how to deal with the news about Beryl.

When faced with a difficult situation, Emily would still subconsciously turn to Jacob for help. In any case, the exposure of Beryl's existence to the public was something Jacob did not want, especially since she was said to have such a special relationship with Jacob.

Good or bad, everything was exposed to the public.

Although, Jacob was also distressed about the problem, he didn't show any signs of weakness in his tone. "I promise I will not let this hurt you or Beryl. Don't worry. I am going to fix this," he assured.

When Jacob went out that day, he particularly ordered his people to pay close attention to those who followed him around and took photos, so that they could intercept and destroy the photos once the followers were found out. Unexpectedly, no one thought that there should be someone escaped.

This meant that Mr. Gu was also aware of the news.

Jacob's words gave Emily strength, as she finally settled down and said, "Thank you, Jacob."

"Beryl is my daughter, and it is my responsibility as her father."

"You..." It seemed like Emily was trying to say something, but before she could finish, she fell to the floor. All Jacob heard was a loud thudding sound, followed by the sound of the phone falling to the ground.

"Emily?" Jacob gasped.

"Manager Lu, what's the matter with you..." Jacob heard another person shrieking on the other side of the line.

In an instant, Jacob's heart sank and he rushed out of the office with the phone in his hand.

The hospital was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop.

Emily's eyes fluttered open and the first thing she laid eyes on was the familiar face of a handsome man. Dazed and muddled, she said, "Jacob? What are you doing here? I... What happened to me?"

Emily tried to sit up, but Jacob gently insisted, "Don't move. You need to get some rest."

"Why am I in the hospital right now?" she asked. The last thing Emily remembered was being on the phone with Jacob, and then suddenly feeling overwhelmed by nausea, before she hit the floor.

Jacob's face was drained w

savored the felicity that fizzled in his heart.

"I want you to be my dad," she said. Beryl rubbed her eyes, then complained to Jacob, "But mommy doesn't want me to call you Daddy."

Jacob lowered his head, gave her a soft kiss on the forehead, and then gently whispered, "Then we don't need to tell her. It will be our little secret, okay?"

"Okay!" Beryl was over the moon with excitement.

"Your mommy asked me to pick you up. Let's go and meet her."

"Okay. But how about Zoe?"

"She had an emergency, so she had to go home first."

Jacob hid the bitter truth from Beryl. He wanted to preserve her innocence and keep her away from the bad things.

Outside, the two policemen handcuffed Zoe and were about to take her away.

As expected, Zoe refused, and screamed out, "What on earth are you doing? I did nothing wrong! You can't take me away like this! I have a child at home to look after..."

"Miss Zoe, we are placing you under arrest under suspicions of attempting to poison Miss Lu. We need you to come to the station to help us in our investigation. If you are found innocent, you will be discharged."

"I didn't do anything, I don't even know what you're talking about..." she pleaded.

"Miss Zoe, you can say whatever you want to say back at the police station."

Suddenly, Zoe started to panic, because she knew that she wasn't innocent. She was afraid that she wouldn't be able to get out once she got taken into police custody! The two policemen followed Jacob here. Perhaps he knew something?

Zoe yelled, "No! I want to see Mr. Gu!"
