However, Michelle shook her head and waved her hand at Emily, feeling a little shy. "I would have done the same thing even if it were someone else in your place."

Emily had begun to see Michelle in a new light after what had happened earlier. In fact, she couldn't stop smiling because she was happy to see that even Rita was getting along so nicely with her sister.

Even just a year ago, if someone had told her that Michelle would save her life, Emily would never have believed it. Although a single act of kindness would not absolve Michelle of her past sins, it was certainly a right step in the path of redemption.

The incident had drastically changed how they both saw each other. The experience had changed them both for the better.

"Nonetheless, I appreciate what you did for me today. Thank you very much for your help!" Emily humbly bowed to Michelle with folded hands, which was a polite gesture, even though it looked a little funny.

Almost immediately, Michelle's face turned red with embarrassment.

After they left the hospital later on, Jacob finally asked Emily about what had happened today.

Although, deep down, Emily was terrified, she responded with a gentle smile so that Jacob wouldn't worry about her. "I'm all right now. Don't worry about me anymore." After she noticed the strained expression on Jacob's face, she continued, "I was planning on visiting you at the office today, but I accidentally hit a minibus on my way there. When I got out of the car, a group of people dragged me into the minibus. I was so afraid that I grabbed the dagger from the gangster's hand, but I ended up getting hurt myself."

Emily downplayed the seriousness of the matter like it was nothing, which angered Jacob even more. He pulled Emily into his arms, feeling disappointed at his own inability to keep her safe. 'How dare they lay a hand on my girl?' Jacob gritted his teeth in anger.

After driving Emily home, Jacob went straight to the study. A sense of coldness emanated from his body, as he placed his mobile phone beside his ear.

Although he knew that only Darren would be foolish enough to try and hurt Emily, when his name popped into his mind, Jacob failed to stifle his anger and kicked over a vase.

"Yes. I'd like you to double the security around Emily and the children. Don't let anything go wrong again," Jacob said.

"Jacob, you..."

"I know what to do. Don't worry about me. I won't allow myself to act out of line!

and took a step back. "You can leave now. I'll meet with Darren tomorrow."

Nora gracefully bowed her head one last time before she left.

When she got out of the hotel, a cold, unforgiving breeze touched her face and sent shivers through her body.

After sending a text message to Darren, Nora disappeared into the moonlight.

The next evening, Darren took Nora to a private room in the bar he had reserved in advance.

Carlos was already waiting for them inside. After taking a look at him, Darren couldn't help smiling.

He pushed Nora to Carlos.

"Mr. Li, long time no see!"

Darren reached out to shake his hand. After briefly glancing at Nora, Carlos slowly reached his hand out and shook Darren's hand, out of politeness.

Then he quickly retracted his hand, as if he had touched something unclean.

Darren, on the other hand, poured a glass of wine and raised his glass to Carlos with a smile, even though his eyes were glaring with malice.

"Mr. Li, we haven't seen each other in so many years. I know you've traveled far to be here. It's my honor to have you here as my distinguished guest."

With a contemptuous smile that settled on his face, Carlos decided to cut to the chase. "Mr. Xu, what do you want from me? Let's just get straight to the point. It's not like our relationship is on good terms. You don't have to treat me so specially. I'm a very straightforward person and I don't say anything that I don't mean."

Darren's face darkened and the fake smile on his face disappeared in an instant. "Mr. Li, every dog has its day. How can you be so sure that you won't have to come to me for help one day?"
