Emily's eyes snapped open to a horror she could never imagine. Small ragged gasps escaped her mouth as Jacob squeezed his hands tighter around her throat. She clawed at his hands to pry his fingers away, but she was slowly losing strength. Black filled the edges of her vision as she looked at Jacob with desperation and the only thing she could hear was her own heartbeat.

Jacob, on the other hand, looked completely unmoved by her agony. With an unfeeling glint in his eyes, Jacob looked as though he had been possessed by the Devil himself, as he tightened his fingers around her esophagus.

All he knew was that he needed to kill this woman.

He needed to kill her so that no one could ever use her against him. As far as Jacob was concerned, Emily was his weakness, making him vulnerable to pain and suffering. The sooner he got rid of her the sooner he would find peace and serenity in his heart.

Emily was slowly slipping out of consciousness. Death wasn't as beautiful or peaceful as she had once imagined, and she really believed she was going to die there any second. Tears emerged from the corner of her eyes and dropped on Jacob's hands.

All of a sudden, Jacob let go of Emily as if her tears had burned his hands. He stepped back and looked at his own two hands in disbelief, his shoulder trembling as his heart pounded in his chest.

'What have I just done?

Why was I trying to kill Emily? How is that even possible? What happened to me?'

I almost killed her. Emily...by my own hands...

Why would I do this?

I may not care about her, but that doesn't mean I want her to die either!'

Emily was finally free from Jacob's control, but she seemed to have lost the ability to breathe properly. She lay on the bed in agony, while her face turned gray and her lips as white as paper.

Every time she tried to speak or breathe there was a wheeze, like air escaping from a deflating balloon. The exertion brought on more breathlessness, as she felt like a fish out of water, squirming and writhing to survive.

Jacob finally came to his full senses when he saw Emily struggling on the bed. He rushed to her and pulled her into his arms. He tried to resuscitate her by performing CPR or anything else he thought would work.

Again and again, he tried, as beads of sweat started to form on his forehead.

Suddenly, Emily coughed. Following the first weak cough were several stronger coughs as her chest heaved for air. She slumped to her side until she felt as though her body had come back to normal.

Jacob was relieved to see Emily come back to life, but he was still worried about her condition, so he grabbed an oxy

e…what's that suppose to mean?"

"Because I…" Emily lowered down her head so that Jacob couldn't see her face, "I can't tell you…I can't say anything…"

'She still has to keep secrets from me even after everything that just happened?

Or was it just a joke? Am I taking it too seriously?' Jacob wondered in his mind.

"I got you." Emily suddenly let out a big smile and gently punched Jacob on the chest.

"You little twerp,"

said Jacob, relieved of his worries. Seeing Emily smile was comforting enough, so he didn't want to think about anything else at the moment.

'If I don't love her, she will die. How ridiculous is that! I should have known it was just a joke. She was treating me like a kindergarten kid.

With my money and the advanced technology it can afford, she will certainly be fine soon. We will both live together until we are very old. Maybe we will all live to a 100 years old.

We will always be with each other.

Nothing can stop us.'

Emily was about to fall asleep when Jacob kissed her again and asked, "You said you loved me…did you mean it?"

He would never ask her this question if Emily was in her normal state because he knew she would never tell him the truth.

"Of course I love you," Emily replied without any hesitation, "but you never believe me. You are such a fool, Jacob. Do you know that you will…you will…"

Jacob was thrilled to hear the answer, but he realized it was another weird answer. "I am going to what? Emily, go on."

"You will lose me forever someday." Emily's voice was getting weaker and weaker as if she was drifting off to sleep.

Jacob stopped her words with his gentle kiss. He pulled Emily into his chest and hugged her like it was the end of the world.

"No, I won't. Never."
