Emily bent over quickly and picked Beryl up with haste. Emily turned to Jack and calmly stated, "You can't expect kids to keep remembering things."

"I guess you're right, plus I haven't been able to see her these days," said Jack. Jack nodded in agreement, but he soon changed the topic, "You just came back from seeing Jacob, haven't you?"

"Yeah." Emily didn't see any reason to deny this.

Jack clicked his tongue in disappointment, averted his gaze and said, "I knew it."

Emily looked straight into Jack's eyes and asked seriously, "Jack, why did you lie about being Beryl's father?"

"Wait, you know?" Jack was surprised when he heard this, but settled down soon after. He continued, "Of course you do. Was it ever possible that Jacob would choose not to tell you the truth?"

His answer was a shock to Emily. She was just bluffing when she asked that, not really sure if Jack was going to bite. He did. "So, you mean that four years ago, you and I didn't.."

"Yes. I regret that we didn't," said Jack, morose.

Jack thought that if he took advantage of Emily that time, Beryl could've been his real daughter. But now, Jacob had it all.

Emily, on the other hand, was emotionally in turmoil. She doubted this even before that Beryl was his daughter, but she didn't dare voice it out. She was unconsciously trying to escape reality.

Escaping from what exactly? She had no idea.

When she learned of the truth at this very moment, Emily didn't experience the relief she thought would wash over her. Because of deliberate misinformation and misunderstanding, Jacob and her had missed four years of bringing up Beryl.

And time was fickle.

"Do you hate me then?" asked Jack intently. He sounded weary but insisted on an answer.

Emily wordlessly looked at him. She just looked down, and shook her head slowly looking sorrowful. She then answered, "I did before, but now I just don't feel anything."

Jack laughed at this. His face was showed a bitter expression and his eyes hinted a moment of madness. He yelled straight at Emily's face, "That's because you don't care about me now, so much that you don't even have the feelings to invest to hate me! I knew it all this time. But I refuse to accept it."

How could he possibly accept it?

Emily was his girlfriend from the start.

But along came Jacob ruining everything and stole her away from him.

Even now when everyone was calli

daily activities. Even if Emily didn't see Jacob these days, it was extremely hard to get him out of her mind because of Sam's updates.

Even though every text was harmless and trivial, they all upset Emily when she read them.

Every time she was tempted to add Sam into her blacklist of contacts, Emily somehow kept giving up after a long time internal struggle. She just decided to let it be.

About a ten minutes or so, Emily got another update from Sam.

"Mr. Jacob is in trouble."

The moment she read the message, Emily's eyes widened and her heart felt like it skipped a beat.

What happened with Jacob?

Before she was about to reply, her phone suddenly rang. It was a phone call from Sam. Emily answered the phone immediately and heard Sam's anxious voice.

"Miss E... Cloris! Mr. Jacob got in trouble! You'd better come and have a look. Please be quick!"

"What's up with him?" Emily accidentally knocked the coffee mug on the table, but she didn't care about saving the important documents. She only thought of Jacob. "You should call Jennifer instead of me. She is Jacob's fiancee."

Sam paused and wondered, 'Fiancee?'

He had never heard that Jennifer was Mr. Jacob's fiancee. Even this was true, their engagement was like a million years ago.

Before he was about to clarify things, a beep sounded. Emily had already hung up. He tried calling again, but she kept rejecting it. Sam had no other choice but an ultimatum. He clenched his teeth tightly and started texting her a message.

"Miss Cloris, if you don't come now and I mean now, you will never see Mr. Jacob again."
