Jacob had said that those letters seemed to have been written by a woman. Thus, Emily suspected that the threatening postcard had been sent by Nora.

After she took Rita home, Emily didn't go back to her company immediately. Instead, she went to Jacob's company to tell him about her suspicion.

"Madam, Mr. Gu is in a meeting. Shall I go to inform him now?" Seeing that Emily was here, Sam quickly came forward to assist her. Yet in his mind, he knew that the meeting might have to stop.

If Jacob knew that Emily was here, he would dismiss any meeting for her. Sam had no doubt about this as Jacob always put Emily first.

"No need to bother him. It's not urgent. I'll stay here and wait for him."

Emily shook her head and chose to walk to Jacob's office.

Sitting on the couch, Emily unintentionally fell asleep.

When she woke up, she didn't know how long she had been asleep.

Then, she seemed to think of something. She yelled and bounced upright to sit on the couch before looking around, bewildered.

When Emily saw Jacob working intently at his desk, she let out a sigh and felt quite relieved.

Realizing that she was awake, Jacob put aside what he was doing and walked to Emily with a smile. "You're up? That's quite a long nap, you sleepy cat." He leaned over and kissed her brow tenderly.

"How long was I sleeping? And when did you come back?" Emily asked sleepily. Feeling heavy in her head because of the lengthy sleep, Emily rubbed her temple and lay down again.

She had been working overtime recently due to the new project at her company. What's more, she had gone to the mall with Rita for nearly a whole day, which was why she was so tired that she had fallen asleep on the couch.

"Not too long. I've only waited for two or three hours." Jacob smiled tolerantly.

He sat beside her, lifted her legs onto his lap, took off her high heels, and massaged her feet.

He knew that Emily had walked around all day with Rita, and that she must be very exhausted.

Feeling a tingling sensation in her legs, Emily let out a sigh of pleasure. "Why didn't you wake me up when you came back from the meeting?"

"How can I wake you up when you're having some well-deserved rest, you little fool?" Jacob said dotingly.

"Well, that makes sense. Because if you wake me up while I'm sleeping, I'll be

do that? In fact, from what I know, if Darren wants to take over the company, he only needs to ask and David will just let him have it."

Emily knew that David, as the young master of a wealthy family, secretly yearned for freedom. He wouldn't have taken the position of the CEO if there had been anyone else in the Xu Family who was capable of taking charge of the company.

"Well, I don't know. Maybe we'll see what he is up to as things unfold." Jacob put down Emily's legs and drew her closer, letting her lay her head on his lap.

Darren hadn't done anything harmful to the Xu company yet, so Jacob and David had to remain calm and still. Time would tell them what Darren's hidden agenda was.

"Yeah," Emily replied in low spirits. She lifted her hand and caressed Jacob's perfectly-sculpted chin, then said, "Rita doesn't know anything about it at all. I hope that maybe we're just overthinking it."

"There is no need to worry about Rita. She has David around to take good care of her. What you need to be careful of is that postcard you received. Let's check who wrote it, shall we?" Jacob smiled as he traced the outline of her delicate nose with his slender finger.

Then, Jacob sent Sam to find a sample of Nora's handwriting.

Sam worked fast. Within half a day, a letter in Nora's handwriting was brought to Emily's office.

However, after Emily carefully compared Nora's handwriting with the words on the postcard, she realized that Nora wasn't the one who had written the postcard, because the letters looked totally different.
