David's joke lit up the room like firecrackers on a festival night. Emily appreciated his effort to lighten the mood because she knew that he was doing it for her.

After all, she was the one who had gotten all of them in a tough spot. If she had been more careful, Darren wouldn't have taken the opportunity to steal her child, and they wouldn't have had to face all these troubles right now. The fact that Darren had taken away HT Group, a company both Jacob and David had worked tirelessly to build, because of her mistake was a bitter pill for her to swallow.

Emily's heart and stomach were turning on her, aching in painful pangs of guilt. Although she knew that Jacob was behind her no matter what, she still felt like she owed David an apology.

Without further hesitation, Emily stood up and bowed before David before anyone had the chance to react. The tears fell fast and hard as the sobs wracked her slim body with their force. With her face crumpling in shame, she said, "I am so sorry, David!"

David rushed to get her back up on her feet and said, "Emily, please don't apologize to me for that. You and Rita have been friends for as long as I can remember. In my heart, you are family. There's nothing more important in the world than family. Don't ever speak as if I am a stranger."

"David is right, Emily. We will get through this together. Like a family. Besides, we are all aware that you're already feeling heartbroken. So, don't blame yourself anymore," Rita added.

They sat Emily down and Jacob took her into his arms once again, patting her back to stop her from breaking down in sorrow.

He hadn't stopped Emily from apologizing to David just because he knew that if she didn't get it off her chest today, she would continue to blame herself.

The fact that everyone showed her sympathy instead of blaming her made Emily want to cry even more. There was a festering sense of regret that tormented her, but crying wasn't going to help solve that problem.

David noticed the sorrow in Emily's eyes, so he lazily leaned back on the sofa and tried to ease her mind. "Moreover, ever since Rita got pregnant, I haven't been able to focus my attention on HT Group. In fact, I should be grateful to your capable husband, because I got a lot of money from the company even though my contributions weren't significant. Knowing Jacob, there's nothing in the world he can't achieve if he puts his mind to it. I'm sure it won't be long before he builds a company far better than HT Group. I'm just ge

t this moment, his friend needed him at his side because apart from Sam, he was the only person Jacob could trust right now.

David and Jacob were like brothers. They knew each other very well. Therefore, sometimes they would know what the other needed without even having to speak a word.

Jacob was also worn out and mentally depleted from the past few days of working and worrying. After he saw David and Rita out, Jacob wanted to get some sleep upstairs, but the moment he turned around, he saw Emily at the top of the stairs.

'Wasn't she... Didn't she just go to sleep?' Jacob thought to himself.

"Why are you awake? What happened?"

Jacob asked as he walked towards Emily. But the closer he got to her, the more he sensed that there was something wrong with her.

Emily remained silent. Instead, she took another step down the stairs. When she stepped close to Jacob, he saw that her eyes were blank, focused on nothing in particular.

The horrible memories came rushing back into his head, replaying his horrors all over again. All of a sudden, he realized what was going on. Emily was sleepwalking again.

These symptoms were proof that Emily hadn't recovered from the depression she had been suffering from for a while now.

Emily hadn't shown any symptoms of depression, let alone sleepwalking, ever since she had started receiving treatment.

This had led Jacob to believe that Taylor's help had cured Emily completely, but clearly he was wrong.

He didn't try to wake Emily up again, but instead he called Taylor immediately. Jacob held Emily and kept her at his side because he was afraid that she would hurt herself once he took his eyes off her.
