"Emily!" Panic overwhelmed Jacob. In his desperation, he shook Emily and said, "Emily, can you hear me?"

Jacob put her down gently and hung his head helplessly looking at Emily's blood-drained face and her pale lips in despair. Her eyes had frozen over like the surface of a winter puddle, robbing them of their usual warmth.

With his trembling hand, Jacob felt the breath under Emily's nose. It was extremely faint, like a tiny flicker against the wind. He put her on his back again, and ran quickly in the direction of the village.

On the way, withered thorn bushes and sharp stones cut his feet, but Jacob kept running in spite of the pain, as if his life was on the line.

Soon, the villagers momentarily caught sight of a figure flash by in the pouring rain. They wondered who would be stupid enough to run in the heavy rain on such a cold winter day. Was there something wrong with his brain?

The same road that once felt short now seemed extremely long, as if he would never run to the end of it. Jacob was so worried that he wished he had a pair of wings on his back to fly him home.

Not knowing how long he had been running, Jacob finally reached home.

He kicked open the door to Mr. Barefoot's room and strode in with Emily on his back. His breath came in short gasps and he managed to squeeze out a few words from his mouth. "Old man! Old man, are you in? Come and save my wife!"

"What are you doing? You almost kicked my door down!" Mr. Barefoot walked in from outside, seemingly distressed by Jacob's impatience.

Jacob yanked Mr. Barefoot over, allowing him no room for resistance. "Save her quickly!" said Jacob.

"What's the matter? You are so troublesome," said Mr. Barefoot. Mr. Barefoot was excessively casual, but when he saw Emily's lifeless body, he immediately realized the severity of the situation. With a curious stare, he asked Jacob, "What's wrong with her? Don't you know she shouldn't be out in the rain in her condition? She could die!"

Jacob's face changed when he heard the last sentence. He knelt down in front of Mr. Barefoot without hesitation and begged him, "Old man, please save her! I will do whatever you want! As long as you save her!"

Mr. Barefoot looked at Jacob coldly for a few seconds, and noticed a flash of panic in his eyes. "If you're not careful, this girl is going to die in your hands!"

"Please, save her!" Jacob didn't have time to explain everything and he wasn't even thinking clearly

iss Beauty. I've heard that she's fallen ill." Donny still cared about Emily even after everything that had happened. When he found out that Emily was seriously ill, he could hardly keep himself from running to her.

However, how could Mrs. Yang let him go to her? "No, Donny. I can't let you go anywhere near her. Who knows what kind of life-threatening diseases she's contracted. What if you get infected?"

Donny shook his head and insisted, "No, I am not afraid of that."

Mrs. Yang stroked herself on the chest and cried, "Ah, my son! Even if you are not afraid of that, I will still worry about you. And if anything happens to you, how will I go on without you?"

No matter how hard Donny begged her, Mrs. Yang did not allow him to visit Emily. She locked Donny in the room, so that he couldn't sneak out to see Emily.

Mrs. Yang had her own reasons for acting the way she did. First of all, she had a hand in attempting to murder Emily. For all she knew, she was partially responsible for Emily's current predicament. Secondly, she wanted her son to forget about Emily, because she felt that her son deserved to be with someone better. Apart from a beautiful face, what else did Emily have to offer?

Emily was so frail that it was a miracle she hadn't been blown off her feet by a strong wind yet. As what the villagers had said, Emily was incapable of getting pregnant let alone give birth to a son to carry on their family name.

Moreover, she was worried that Bear would physically assault her dear son if he went over to see Emily. 'It's too dangerous for you to go there!'

Mrs. Yang refused outright and stood her ground.
