They had been stuck in the alley for what seemed like hours. The alley was definitely a dead-end and their eyes could detect no possible way in which Jack could have escaped!

But they'd checked the cul-de-sac inside and out, and found nothing, not even his shadow.

"Captain Liu, there's nothing more that we can do to find Jack. Shall we pull back now?" A young policeman suggested from the far corner.

Captain Liu was suddenly pissed off, and he shouted out, "Are you the captain now? Don't you know that he has an innocent child with him? For the sake of the child, we can't pull back the team! Even if we don't catch him, we must at least save the child from him!"

The young man lowered his head to hide his annoyance. He explained carefully, "I don't think he would hurt the child. Maybe this child is very important to him, since he has been carrying her around."

Even in the dark, he had sensed Jack's caring attitude towards the child, when he had opened the trash bin and seen them. It was something in Jack's eyes. He showed such care and consideration for the child.

It was as if she were his own daughter.

"What do you know? It is always difficult to guess what motivates criminals. That's why we need to plan for the worst situation!" Captain Liu scolded him.

The young man spoke again, carefully trying to get the team to move on, "Captain Liu, we have turned this place upside down, and found no sign of the criminal. What if he has escaped long ago? That means we have lost the best moment..."

"Find him! Search again!" Captain Liu didn't want to believe that he had been eluded, and he was not willing to give up like this!

He was so close to catch the criminal! The former master of the Gu clan, also the ex-CEO of the Gu Consortium!

It would mean a promotion for him!

How could he yield to the reality and watch Jack slide away? No, he couldn't, and he would not give up on it!

"Yes, Captain Liu," his order was obeyed.

The young officer again went to the trash can, while others searched for the fugitive. No trace of him was found. Making a show of searching the bin, he thoughtfully added some extra trash from the ground to cover Jack who looked up at him with trusting eyes. 'It must be agony to be folded up into that small space, ' the young man wondered.

Suspicious now, Captain Liu furrowed his eyebrows tightly, and stared at the green trash bin that had just been checked, "Are you sure you have examined the trash bin?"

The young man shrugged, "I have checked there several times. There's nothing in t

moving at a speed he didn't even know he was capable of. He was an arrow leaving the bow!

Horns roared and brake screamed, almost deafening the bystanders.

Reaching her, Jack pushed Beryl out of harms way with all his might. All that mattered was that she not be harmed. How would he explain that to Emily? He loved them, even though Beryl was not his daughter and Emily never loved him. The car hit him with bone crunching force.

Flung from the road by the great force of the accident, she rolled several times before coming to rest on the curb. Ignoring her own pain, she looked at Jack helplessly as he was struck with a loud bang and somersaulted through the air to land like a rag-doll on the ground!

"Uncle Jack!" She shrieked, but no sound left her lips. Beryl began trembling, and felt weak to the stomach.

'No! This is not real! It can't happen!

What I saw is not real!

How could Uncle Jack...'

She looked at the broken man lying on the road, not far from her. His chest was still heaving in great shudders, struggling for breath, but blood was leaking from his nose and mouth. He choked then, spewing forth bright red bubbles as his lungs convulsed.

Jack was like a dying fish stranded on a beach.

Sensing her eyes on him, he tried to tell her to look away, but no words would pass his lips. Silently, he mouthed, "Don't...look..."

He feared that the trauma of seeing him like this would prove too much for her young mind. She had already been through so much!

'I must be a frightful sight for her to behold.

Sorry, Emily.

I couldn't save you. I can't even protect your daughter either.

I am such a useless rubbish!' Jack thought, his heart aching with remorse.
