"Okay, I see. Thank you very much, doctor." Knowing that Carol was fine, Emily let out a long sigh of relief, as if a heavy weight had been lifted from her chest.

"You're welcome. You may go inside now and see how she is doing," the doctor said warmly a with a smile.

"Let's go?" Emily said to Jacob. She glanced at him and then entered the ward first.

The operation was a success, but Carol was still under the effects of the anesthesia. She lay there on the hospital bed, her face as pale as a sheet. Seeing this, tears streamed down Emily's cheeks.

Worrying that her sobbing might disturb Carol, Emily covered her mouth tightly with her hand, her chest heaving up and down.

Looking at Emily's thin, quivering figure, Jacob's heart also ached. At that moment, she looked so vulnerable. He put his arms around her shoulders, pressing his lips softly at her temples. "Don't worry, Emily. The doctor said she was fine."

Emily leaned her head on his shoulder, still sobbing uncontrollably.

"I know, I know... I'm... happy."

It was a good thing that it seemed like God was on her side, and that the people she loved were as lucky as they were.

Suddenly, something seemed to occur to her, and she wiped off her tears and looked up at Jacob.

"Jacob, there must be a lot of things in your company for you to attend to, right? If you don't have time for this, you can go back. You don't have to wait for me. I want to stay here and take care of her."

When Emily was waiting outside the operating room, she had made up her mind to look after Carol until she got better.

Carol was alone without Sean and Cloris around. Since Emily was her only adopted daughter and the reason why she was injured in the first place, it made sense for Emily to stay with her.

But the way Jacob saw it, it was not necessary for Emily to take care of Carol by herself. "Emily, we can hire the most professional nurse in Jingshi City to look after her. You don't have to stay here."

'Although Carol came to rescue Emily, she's still a member of the Lu family who used to be the collaborators of Sean Lu and his crime, ' Jacob thought.

"Why? Jacob, I'm her adopted daughter. I'm the only family she's got here. If I don't stay, who else would? T

t the name. Yet she decided to remain silent. Emily might resist her as it might remind her about what had happened before.

"Mom, why did you save me at that moment? It was so dangerous..."

asked Emily. Her hand trembled as she held on to Carol.

Since Carol put her life in danger to save her, Emily had been wondering why she would do something as drastic as that.

'Why did Carol try to save the girl who wasn't related to her and who even cut her off from her family?'

"My silly girl, you are my daughter. What else was there for me to do? Mothers can't just stand by while their own children are in danger," Carol comforted Emily with a smile.

The casual way Carol said her reason without batting an eyelash made Emily believe that she was telling the absolute truth.The more Carol looked at Emily lovingly, the more Emily's heart swelled with joy. Was it a smooth and seamless lie? Only Carol knew it!

"Emily, can you please forgive us?" Carol asked, knowing that Emily was a bit vulnerable at the moment. "Don't be mad at us, okay? It's been a long time since I ever saw Beryl."

When she finished talking, Carol winced in pain. Panicked, Emily straightened up, trying to see what was wrong.

"Mom, are you alright? Are you feeling pain? Do you need a doctor?" She was about to dart out the door to call for a nurse or doctor, when Carol held on to her hand tightly.

"No, I'm fine. It's just a little pain. Don't go, Emily. Stay here with mommy. I miss you so much..."
