Nobody noticed the unusual look on Sean's face, however, neither did anybody understand the kind of violent mood swings he was suffering from. Luckily, their time together at the table passed without any further incidents.

In the following days, Sean became more busy since he had to help Jacob regain his memories.

During that period, Emily didn't meet Jacob even once, as Sean said it would have an adverse effect on the treatment.

Time passed slowly and dreadfully for Beryl and Emily. It had been almost half a month since Jacob's treatment began.

Soon, the treatment reached its final stages, and Sean's workload seemed to have reduced in time. But even so, neither Emily nor Beryl were allowed to see Jacob.

"You have been waiting for half a month. Can't you wait for a few more days? Take it easy. This is the last stage. He will regain his memories of the past soon. The best thing you can do for him now is to wait patiently and let him complete the treatment."

Sean urged them to hold on for just a few more days.

As intolerable as it was for Emily and Beryl, they both kept faith with Sean. Why wouldn't they believe the man standing in front of them? After all, he was closer to them than their own families ever were. As far as they knew, they had every reason to believe what he was saying.

Having swayed both Emily and Beryl, Sean's lips stretched into a smile, almost reaching his dark eyes. "Sorry to keep you waiting for such a long time. You must be exhausted. Let me take you out to get some fresh air. A change of scenery would do us all some good."

Emily would have refused Sean, but she felt bad about the fact that lately he hadn't been able to do anything else because of Jacob's treatment. She felt like she owed him so she gave him a nod in response.

Since there wasn't much she could do to help, to show her gratitude, she compensated him by agreeing to go out with him.

Needless to say, Beryl was the happiest to hear his proposition. However, the thought of her father not being there with her to have a good time left a huge hole in her heart.

Beryl was still too young to hide her emotions, which was clearly visible on her face. When Sean noticed her disappointment, his eyes twitched involuntarily.

"Beryl, aren't you happy that I will be going with you?" asked Sean, seemingly disappointed.

"Yeah, I am happy!" She nodded seriously. "If only daddy could come with us!"

Sean gazed mildly at her small face and said, "Then you can consider me to be your daddy."

Emily thought that it was highly inappropriate of Sean t

hat he wanted.

He preferred doing injustice to others to them doing injustice to him.

"You'd better repent, Sean," Emily said as she bit her lips tightly and her eyelashes quivered. Even after all those years, she never really knew who he was deep inside.

As soon as she started to live in the Lu family residence, she figured out that Sean was doing something wrong. She tried to stop him, but unfortunately, she didn't know how.

"Forget about it! There's no need to ruin the mood," said Sean. It seemed as though he didn't hear a single thing Emily had said. He wore what he clearly thought was a winning smile and said, "Let's go. I'll take you two to that nice restaurant Beryl likes so much."

Sean stooped down to pick up Beryl and kissed her tender face. "I have checked Beryl over. She is doing much better now. There's hardly any difference between her and other children. That's great!"

Emily clamped her lips as if she wanted to say something, but gave up. Instead she simply replied, "Yeah."

"Beryl's health has always been your sore point. Now it is slowly healing."

"Yeah, my sore point is healing, and yours?" asked Emily.

The smile on Sean's face froze up for a moment. "Maybe it will never be healed," he said, helplessly but firmly.

Cloris was the one obsession in his life he could never let go of.

She deserved all his love and his madness.

Somehow he firmly believed that she would come back to him again.

As Sean gazed into the face of Emily, which bore a striking resemblance to Cloris, a blot of darkness glimmered in his eyes but was then suppressed by him in no time.

It seemed that his plan could soon be carried out.

And this time, no one could stop him.
