Having spoken, he hung up immediately, not wanting to listen further to her irritating words!

Sam was standing at his side, ready to prepare for the the rest of the day's meetings and social engagements. Wisely he had kept silent. He could not fathom the strange, seemingly dysfunctional relationship which Mr. Jacob and Miss Emily were immersed in.

'Is this where the fun lies?'

The mute audience to the telephonic exchange sat cringing in the boardroom, unsure what to say and terrified to object. No one even dared breathe, much less remind Jacob of all the meetings that were scheduled for today. Instead they all meekly glared at the floor, like sheep waiting for slaughter.

Feeling like he was suffocating, Jacob unceremoniously loosened his tie. He coldly regarded the waiting staff and said, "The meeting is concluded."

Like people receiving amnesty they jumped to their feet and hurried from the room. Sam followed in Jacob's slipstream as he left the room by a side entrance, "Sir, the schedule for today..."

"What do you think?" Casting him a negligent knife-laced look over one shoulder, Jacob kept walking.

Sam immediately understood and shut up.

After they left, the senior employees gathered in the common area, and gossip flew like a loosed flock of birds in the office.

"Who called Mr. Jacob just now? Who can make him so angry, yet he kept his temper?"

"Probably someone in his family?"

"Was it Vice President Jennifer?" "No!"

"Who told you it was Vice President Jennifer?" "It must be the daughter from the Lu family. It is said that she bore Mr. Jacob a daughter! If she can make Mr. Jacob leave all his work to accompany her, then she must matter greatly to Mr. Jacob."

"Then what about Vice President Jennifer? It is said that she is pregnant and Mr. Jacob has allowed her to work in the company. Will they get married..."

"It's hard to say whether Mr. Jacob is even the father. Rest assured. Mr. Jacob is not such an honorable man that he'd be willing to raise another man's child!"

"What are you all talking about?" A sarcastic female voice interrupted everyone's whispering. "Where's Mr. Jacob? Where has he gone?"

Jennifer harshly questioned everyone present, behaving like a jealous wife.

Those who had been talking behind her back had some initial qualms. These vanished at the sight of her jealous and arrogant gesturing though.

"Mr. Jacob? He canceled all work scheduled for today and has left. He probably went on a date. It's really enviable." A female senior manager said

r find Jacob, it was really hard to define whether or not he was a good man. He could shift from a gentle man to a ruthless one within a second. She felt that accepting his offered help was against her scruples, so she politely declined, "No. Thank you. I'll take a taxi."

"Taking taxis hasn't been very safe lately." Magee smiled playfully, but with a serious tone, he said, "Kidnapping, robbery, rape and murder... Don't you even watch the news? With a pretty lady such as you, the risk goes up."

Her eyebrows drew up a little at his words. Originally, she hadn't felt that there was anything to fear in taking a taxi, but now that he mentioned the safety concerns, she became slightly worried.

He added, "We are friends. At least I won't hurt you, right? Besides, I would not be foolish enough to seek Jacob's wrath."

"Thank you."


He was somewhat slow in realizing that he had convinced her, but seeing her step to the car door, his smile spread to embrace his charismatic eyes. He turned his eyes to the road and said, "You're welcome. So where to then?"

Seating herself on the backseat and fastening the seatbelt, she gave him the address.

Finding the destination in his memory he then asked, "Isn't that a kindergarten?"

Emily nodded and said, "Yes."

Magee didn't ask any further questions, but starting the soft purring of the Bentley, he drove off.

They made some small talk on the way, but Emily showed very little interest. Instead she kept an eye on the time, worrying that she would be late.

Inexplicably, Magee did not like her distant attitude towards him. But he did not show it. Instead he asked casually, "Did you have a quarrel with Jacob?"
