"If Emily has disappeared, Jacob will definitely be anxious and look for her. Aren't we going to do something?"

Dina tried to feel Darren out as if she were really concerned about him. "If Jacob finds out the truth, we will probably be involved in serious trouble!"

"So what are your thoughts about this?"

Darren narrowed his eyes at her while slowly putting down his newspaper. A scary coldness was spreading from within his smile. Then, he said in a provocative manner, "Are you implying that I have kidnapped Emily?"

'Isn't it the truth?'

Dina thought to herself secretly, afraid of being noticed by him.

Instead, she blinked her pretty eyes vacantly and cocked her little head as if she was totally ignorant of the whole thing. Then she said innocently, "Aren't you involved in the crime? I thought it was you who orchestrated the whole thing."

"How could I do that?"

Darren carefully stared at her, noting each and every change in her facial expressions. Then, his eyes grew more and more gloomy.

Only when he got nothing from Dina's facial expression did he assume his normal posture. Then, he forced a smile and casually waved his hand. "I really wish that Emily was under my control so that I could threaten Jacob, but unfortunately, I know nothing about her disappearance."

His words were like the blows from a sledgehammer on Dina's heart.

Darren was now denying the truth.

For a moment, she quickly lowered her head and took the cup of coffee from the table to cover up the complexity of her emotions reflecting on her face for a second. Then, she slightly tightened her lips, ready to pout as usual. "So you really have nothing to do with this?"

"Of course not! You'd better stay away from this too."

Although Darren saw nothing in her countenance, he felt that he couldn't trust her now. Inadvertently impatient, he waved his hands. "I am going to be pretty busy for the next few days, so I will have no time to take care of you. You'd better stay in that villa on the outskirts of the city and avoid people. But don't worry, because I will send someone to take care of you."

What he meant by "take care" was that he was putting her under house arrest.

Dina's eyes flicked for a moment. Her heart almost missed a beat. She looked at Darren with disbelief in her eyes. "You don't have to do that, because I'm preparing for Heroine's campaign. I should..."

"Put

r Darren but couldn't find him. Darren hadn't received his phone calls and couldn't be found at his company or home. Jacob knew that Darren was trying to hide, so he had been left with no alternative but to wait for Darren to show up, even though he was greatly worried about Emily.

Luckily, Darren had made contact today.

"You get straight to the point, don't you?"

Darren laughed with his voice rising. He continued in a good mood, "Mr. Jacob, you really are a good partner for cooperation."

One couldn't find even the slightest bit of sinister calculation in his voice, and if one didn't know any better, they would have thought that the two were simply talking about business cooperation.

But his voice was so wretched that it made Jacob fly into a blind rage again.

"What do you want exactly?!" he yelled.

"It's very simple. I want ownership of the HT Group."

Darren wasn't at all concerned about the impact of his words. He continued like it was a kind reminder, "Of course, it also includes all the shares of the HT Group!"

"How dare you!"

Jacob was so annoyed by Darren's words that his pupils constricted, and a fierce anger suddenly rose from his sullen eyes. He said in a dangerous tone, "You want the entire HT Group? Aren't you worried that you won't be qualified to own it?"

With all the shares as well as the entire group's executive and management power given to Darren, he would lose complete control of the HT Group. As a result, he would lose the backbone to support himself, which would be an unfathomable disaster.

"You have no need to worry about that."
