"Be quick! Catch him!" A man dressed in all black, whispered to his men. As he gave the orders, a group of undercover policemen, also dressed in black, came out of the shadows and ran in Jack's direction. They had two mission objectives: rescue Beryl and apprehend Jack.

Behind him, Jack could hear faint rustling noises in the bushes. Sweat dripped from his hair, and he frowned as he realized he was in danger now. He cursed under his breath and then ran as fast as he could with Beryl in his arms.

Jack had no idea that he was being followed all the along.

"Police! Let the child go and turn yourself in! We have you surrounded." One of the policemen shouted at Jack.

Jack quickened his pace, completely disregarding the warning he had just been given. He threw himself forward with even greater speed. His lungs and heart were pumping, but the air didn't seem to be enough as he sprinted forward, panic trembling in his exhausted limbs.

"Uncle Jack, please put me down so that you can run faster. Otherwise, they will catch you!" Beryl's eyes were filled with pity. She couldn't understand why the policemen wanted to arrest Jack. After all, she was in no danger at all because he would never hurt her and if anything, he only treated her with kindness. Perhaps they were just trying to save her, if that were the case, she didn't want her uncle Jack to be arrested because of her.

"Don't worry, Beryl. I am okay." Jack assured her. He knew he could easily outrun the police if he had left Beryl, but then she would undoubtedly be taken back to Jacob by the police.

However, what if these men were not with the police?

If they were just bad men pretending to be the police, leaving Beryl to them could potentially put her in grave danger. Was he really willing to take that chance? No!

It wasn't worth the risk.

Jack was wrong, however, as the men in black were policemen indeed. They had been following Jack's trail for a while, but they didn't take action until now because they were afraid that Jack would bring harm to the hostage if he knew he was being pursued.

The police had to make sure that they wouldn't be putting any other civilians in harm's way before they decided to take action and arrest Jack.

However, they made the mistake of underestimating Jack as they did not expect him to become aware of them so quickly. Much to their chagrin, Jack was now on the run.

In spite of everything, there was no way they could allow him to escape.

Meanwhile, Jacob came to know about the news from his resources. When he found out that Jack had broken out of jail and the police were in hot pursuit, his face contorted with fiery outburst.

"I need to stop him myself," Jacob said coldly with eyes narrowed. He picked up his keys from the table before he drove to the place where Jack was supposed to be right now.

Prison break? Was there anything Jack couldn't do? Just amazing!

Jacob didn't care whether Jack broke out from the jail or not as long as he didn't intervene in the life of his family. Amidst all the chaos, he wondered what Jack was doing near his house. Did Jack end up there on purpose? Was Jack looking to attack him?

Suffice it to say, there was no way Jack could pose a threat to Jacob.

Jacob's car spe

meet the policeman here who had served as his private bodyguard once.

Jack never expected that his bodyguard would one day become a policeman and save him at this critical moment.

"I am afraid I have nothing left to reward you for your great help. Such a pity. I am sorry for that," Jack sighed.

"Mr. Jack, please don't say that to me. I am helping you for nothing in return, but only for your gratitude," the policeman said excitedly, "I would have died helplessly on the streets if you didn't offer me the job before. I am thankful that I can have this opportunity to repay for you. Mr. Jack, don't worry. I will do everything I can to help you!"

"Thank you very much," Jack said in a touching tone. Jack could tell from the policeman's face that he was sincere and was genuinely willing to offer his help.

A wave of warmth rushed over Jack as he heard the policeman's heartfelt words. Jack thought to himself that he would reward the policeman later if he had the chance to start over again.

"Mr. Jack, I am afraid you have to stay inside for a while. But I believe they will leave here soon once they fail to find you. You can get out after we leave here," the policeman suggested to Jack.

"That's fine with me," Jack nodded. He held Beryl closely in his arms and comforted her. "Everything's going to be fine," he whispered in her ears.

When the young policeman realized that his partner had returned, he pretended to check the trash inside but he made sure to hide them underneath all the trash. After making sure they were properly hidden, he walked to his partner.

"I have searched the garbage bin several times, but I couldn't find anything. What about you?" the policeman asked.

"Still no progress. I am wondering if Captain Liu has any good news." His partner yawned.

"You are right. Let's go and have a look," the policeman replied.

Before long, they had vacated the area.

The policemen found nothing after searching every corners of the alley. Needless to say, they were all frustrated.

"Jack is so cunning! I saw him run into this alley. It's so weird! How did he run away from under our noses?" Captain Liu was fuming mad.
