The peacefulness of the dawn was broken by a loud scream of a child. People in the household woke up and scrambled up to find out what happened.

Never had Jacob thought that a terrible accident would happen. He just dawdled around the room while he let Emily go alone downstairs in the kitchen. The moment he heard Beryl's scream, his heartbeat thumped so wildly. He rushed to the kitchen and picked Emily up immediately.

Anxiety attacked as he saw his wife lying on the floor. While carrying Emily, he shouted, "Someone call the doctor to accompany us to the hospital. And hurry up!"

He wanted the doctor to be with them on their way to the hospital for he was afraid that something worse might happen to Emily along the way. He didn't want to take any risk when it came to Emily's welfare.

The scene was a mess. There was a puddle of blood. It was a good thing Beryl was able to shout. She was so frightened that she wasn't able to move even after her father left for the hospital.

Then, Beryl stood still for a long while after her ordeal. As the shock subsided, she began to worry. 'What should I do? Will the baby be all right?'

Beryl couldn't stop thinking about what happened. Her edginess showed by the way her brows frowned. In the end, she couldn't bear to stay at home any longer.

"Beryl, it's time for school." Because she was preoccupied with thoughts of the baby, Beryl didn't notice Ancho coming inside the kitchen until she spoke. On the other hand, Ancho purposely arrived just at the moment because she wanted everyone to notice her absence in the midst of the unfortunate incident.

Opening her mouth and then closing it again, Beryl hesitated a little bit. Then, she shook her head and made a decision, "I'm going to the hospital to check on them."

"Why? What help can you provide? You don't know anything about medicine, do you? That's the reason why there is no need for you to go there. You may make things worse." In a gentlest voice Ancho could muster, she persuaded Beryl not to go anymore. She also paused at the right moment to show the little girl that she was being considerate of her.

"But I'm so worried..." Beryl pursed her lips. A second after, she decided, "No, I want to go to the hospital. I want to see and make sure that the baby will be all right!"

Before Beryl could leave the room, Ancho pulled her back and swung her to face her. Then, she looked out the kitchen to see if there was anyone else around. When she saw there was no one, she whispered, "Beryl, don't go. Aren't you happy with this? If the baby is gone, you will have all your parents' attention. You will not be deprived of the love you deserve..."

The expression in Beryl's eyes changed slowly as realization hit her. Then, she gave Ancho an incredulous look. She couldn't believe what she had just heard. Though it took her a long time to understand what Ancho's words meant, she heard and understood every word.

"Ancho, what's the matter with you? It seems that you have changed..."

Shocked, Ancho suddenly schooled her expression to show d

won't it be?'

Having those thoughts relieved Beryl. But, slowly, her feelings of worry turned to distress. She whispered a prayer in her heart, "Mom, please be better as soon as possible."

At the same time, Ancho was looking at the three of them just by the door of the ward. She felt an outsider, a third wheel in a relationship!

'Emily was indeed lucky! Everyone knew she has poor health. How is it possible for her to be all right after suffering from such a fall? Why is the baby so strong?!'

While these thoughts were running in her mind, Ancho's expression turned gloomy, her hands clenched tightly. She couldn't believe how lucky Emily was every time bad things happened to her. She recovered not only once or twice, but thrice... Hmm... How about a million times?

Ancho also couldn't believe that she failed to make the child disappear! So unbelievable! But it didn't matter, because she would definitely tried it again and again, until she finally succeeded.

After ensuring that Emily was all right and she was just under the effects of medicine, Jacob finally decided to investigate what happened. He made a call. Not long after, the persons arrived and gathered outside the ward.

The investigator interviewed all the people in the household. Eventually, a conclusion was made.

The investigator started to fill Jacob in with the results of his inquiry. "Sir, they all said that only Miss Beryl and Mrs. Emily were the only ones who had entered the kitchen."

But before Jacob could say anything, Ancho suddenly screamed. She faced the investigator and pointed at him on his face, "What do you mean by that?! Are you implying that Miss Beryl did something to harm Mrs. Emily?! That is slander! What will you get in exchange of that accusation?! Who the hell ordered you to do this?!"

The investigator was so confused! He was so stunned that he wasn't able to react right away! Even Jacob was speechless!

Finally, the investigator recovered and said, "I haven't said anything definite yet. Why are you so defensive?"
