The headlines read—"Jennifer begs Jacob on her knees to return to the Gu Consortium." Like wildfire, it spread all over Jingshi City, overlapping the discussion on why Jacob had left the Gu Consortium, and Jennifer herself also became the biggest joke of the year.

Suffice it to say, Jennifer was all over the Internet. People just couldn't stop talking about her. In just one day she became one of the top trending people in the city.

"Maybe there's still time to fix things and turn things around, but I just don't understand why Jennifer would do that. After everything she had done to pull Jacob down from his position, how did she go from that to begging him to come back on her knees. Was she out of her mind?"

"Look at this shameless woman. I heard that she knelt down in front of Tyrone Mansion for several days and nights, only to beg Jacob to go back to the company. That fact alone is evidence enough that nothing in the company can run smoothly without Jacob's guidance. No wonder the Gu Consortium is on the verge of bankruptcy."

"I don't understand who gave this woman the courage to ask Jacob to come back to the company."

All the bad remarks were focused on Jennifer. In the eyes of citizens, Jennifer was only a beautiful woman who lacked the proper fortitude to deal with company's affairs. She was a good-for-nothing, and her wild ambitions were bigger than what she could actually deliver.

Mr. Gu turned a deaf ear to the public opinions, allowing the gossips to spread around instead of doing anything to stop it. Jennifer fell ill after she got back from Tyrone Mansion. She was bed-ridden for several days. Although she was disappointed at Mr. Gu, she really was in no position to sever ties with him. The only thing she could do was glance over the remarks on the web page over and over again.

Although this affair had nothing to do with the entertainment circle, it still aroused the interest of citizens who enjoyed talking about the secrets of the rich and powerful families in the city.

The more attention Jennifer gave, the angrier she became. She felt as though someone was twisting a knife in her chest, and the pain of which was so excruciating that she could spit out a mouthful of blood at any time.

She recalled the day when she left Tyrone Mansion. It was drizzling slightly. Somehow she staggered to her feet. Her bloodied knees ache and her whole body had gone numb from kneeling on the ground for a long time. It even felt as if she had numerous nails stuck to her knees and every time she moved she would whimper in pain.

"Miss Jiang, Mr. Jacob said you dirtied the floor in front of the door. You'd better bring the cleaning fee to him next time." The maid, who was relaying Jacob's messages to her, on his behalf, spoke as if Jennifer were a peasant.

Feeling utterly humiliated, Jennifer gritted her teeth and said, "Got it." Before she knew it, her knees gave in and she fell straight to the floor, knees f

tly and said, "I can walk by myself..."

"But I want to hold you."

Emily was scrambling in her mind, trying to come up with a proper excuse, when the nanny walked down the stairs with Beryl, hand in hand. The little girl rubbed her drowsy eyes, but when she saw Emily in Jacob's arms, all her sleep had disappeared. She wore a mischievous smile on her face and winked at them.

"Wow! Daddy and mommy, what are you doing now? I want to a hug too!"

The nanny quickly covered Beryl's eyes to prevent her from seeing anything and said, "Miss Beryl, it's night time now. So you can't see anything."

"You liar! It's daytime now. Don't cover my eyes, aunt..." Beryl didn't look too pleased with the nanny. By the time, the nanny drew her hand back, Jacob had already carried Emily upstairs and there was nothing left for Beryl to see now.

Beryl took a step, hoping to follow her parents upstairs, but the nanny stopped her. She held the little girl in her arms and coaxed, "Miss Beryl, just now you said you wanted to feed the fishes after breakfast. Have you forgotten? If you waste any more time, the fishes will starve to death."

Her words attracted Beryl's attention. "Let's go. I'm going to have breakfast now, and then I want to feed the fishes," she said eagerly.

"Okay, Miss Beryl. I will take you to the dining room." The nanny breathed a sigh of relief and congratulated herself for succeeding in stoping Beryl from disturbing Mr. Jacob and Mrs. Emily.

Upstairs, Jacob laid Emily on the bed.

Emily wasn't suffering from any negative traumas, but her face was still a bit pale.

Jacob leaned forward and planted a sweet kiss on her forehead. For some reason, the longer he stayed with this woman, the more he found it difficult to separate himself from her.

It was an inexplicable feeling that drew him towards her. Perhaps it was mere instinct that drove him to her.

He wanted to be more intimate with her and keep her by his side at all times.
