Emily felt restless. She tried to eat as slowly as possible, but she was itching to rush and be done with it. It felt like such a long time, but they were finally done eating.

"Brother, can you please tell me now? I just want to know how Seventh is. Please tell me how he is."

"Cloris, you need to be mentally prepared to take my response. So before I tell you, you have to be sure that you're ready to find out."

Sean looked and sounded composed and indifferent, but Emily still felt uneasy. She had a bad intuition about this.

"What do you mean? What are you talking about? Does it mean you found Seventh? You know where he is?"

"Yes, we did find him." Sean started to loosen his necktie and sighed, but he didn't elaborate further.

Emily was burning to know what happened and where Sean found Seventh. She took Sean's hand and pleaded. She desperately wanted to know the answer, but at the same time, she was really worried it could be bad news. "Brother, please..."

Sean held the temples of his nose and sighed once more. "He must have gotten trapped in the swamp. That was where we found his belongings."

"What?" Emily's eyes widened at the thought. She tried to make sense of what Sean was saying, "No. How could that be? That's impossible! I don't believe it. It can't be! I refuse to believe this. Yes, he tends to be foolish at times, but he wouldn't go to such a dangerous place for no reason!"

A bit of anger and annoyance flashed through Sean's eyes, but it was gone as quickly as it appeared. "He's very child-like. Plus he has a very strong sense of curiosity. It is not strange or impossible for him to go and explore. Don't worry, Cloris. I've already assigned people to look around in the swamp. They would find out soon enough."

"No! I refuse to believe! This is absolutely impossible!" Emily's bloodshot red eyes started to fill with tears as she continued to shake her head. She did not want to believe what Sean was saying. Her heart shattered and she felt devastated. "No! He will not die! He cannot die! He said he would always be with me. He said we'd be together!"

"Cloris." Seeing how crestfallen Emily was, Sean felt distressed. He never wanted to see her like this. He leaned close to her and held out his arms to console and hold her close, but Emily pushed him away.

"I want to look for him! I want to go! Let me go to the swamp!"

Emily wriggled out of Sean's reach. Without any hesitation, she knew she needed to leave the house to find the man herself. This was how it felt when you lose your most precious treasure.

Sean was shocked with Emily's strength. He staggered backwards for a bit, before he was able to recover. He composed himself a

pain Jacob had endured, but her heart ached for him and with him all the same. "You shouldn't be running around. It's dangerous outside. You might seriously get hurt. You know, you can't protect yourself. You have to be careful and not risk your life."

As the exchange between Emily and Jacob went on, Sean stayed beside them. They did not seem to realize that he was there. This turned Sean furious.

"Let's all go back inside the castle first."

With a dirty Emily on one side and a muddy Jacob on the other, Sean was fuming as he turned and walked back towards the castle.

Famished, Jacob immediately ate upon entering the castle. He took a hot bath afterwards. Emily did not stop until Sean gave in and gave Jacob a physical examination. After a while, Emily was finally convinced that nothing was wrong with Jacob. She breathed a very heavy sigh of relief and coaxed Jacob to rest and go to sleep.

But Jacob kept insisting that he couldn't fall asleep. He was like a very fickle-minded child. He kept saying, "I am worried that once I close my eyes and fall asleep, my sister would go and leave. While I was in the mud, it was very dark. I felt scared and alone. I thought that was the end. I thought I was going to die."

"Sshh... Don't say that. You are not alone now." Emily covered his mouth with her hand. She refused to let him say another word. "How about I stay here with you? Would you want that? I'll stay beside you as you sleep."

"Yes, I would love that." Jacob's voice was sullen and quiet. He held Emily's hand close to his mouth.

Emily felt a little uneasy. She was about to take her hand back when Jacob held on tighter and kissed her palm.

Emily stopped moving and fell silent.

Sean saw and heard everything.

Oh how he wanted to blow that jerk's head off!
