Emily's eyes were shut even when the morning sun caressed her smooth skin. She had been sleeping for fourteen hours in a row. A frown began to appear on her forehead and her eyelids moved. Jacob was engrossed in reading his book and didn't see subtle changes on Emily's face. At first, Emily opened her eyes only to see a blurred image of someone sitting beside her. She rubbed her eyes once.

It was Jacob, who seemed to be reading something much more interesting. The morning sunlight spread across his face, making his skin shine like gold. Jacob wore a full sleeve white-colored T-shirt and loose red trousers. His hair was down and this aspect made his face look delicately carved. Emily's mouth went dry at the scene in front of her, and she subconsciously licked her lips. Emily watched the elegant beauty and thought to herself about how fortunate she was to find a lover like him.

"Am I so handsome that you can't shift your gaze away from me?"

Emily was startled when she saw Jacob's lips moving. He turned toward her with a mischievous smile plastered on his face. That was when Emily came back to her senses.

She looked at him in silence.

Blood rushed to her face and the corner of her ears turned red. She lowered her eyelids. How stupid was she to stare out in the open? On second thought, this man was her husband. It was her eternal right to continuously stare at him all day long! She watched his smile from the corner of her eyes. Her eyes lit up when a thought crossed her mind. She looked at him and pouted. "If you are not handsome, how can you deserve a fairy like me?"

Jacob chuckled lightly. "You are quite confident in yourself."

To Emily, those words were a taunt rather than a sentence full of sweetness. She didn't know whether to be angry or happy after this. Emily just tilted her head and glared at him. "What? Do you think I am not beautiful?"

Her words sounded like a threat to Jacob. It was as though if Jacob's answer did not satisfy her, she would give him some severe punishment.

Unfortunately for Emily, the person in front of her was Jacob. He would always be calm and mischievous at the same time. He was not willing to turn back even after he heard the threatening voice. Instead, he cast a serious glance at her. "If it was before, my Emily would definitely be called a fairy. But now, no, I really have doubts about that..."

The statement was true in a way. It had been half a month and Emily's health had deteriorated to the extreme. She had become so skinny that even a little gush of wind would blow her away.

This thought made Jacob's heart squeeze and twist in pain. Why would she not take proper care of herself? He put his book down and rubbed her face with his palm. "When will you care about your body? It's because you have stayed depressed for so long that you

back into the warm embrace. Jacob ruffled her hair affectionately. "Why don't you think about yourself? You are not physically fit to appear at the company. Taylor told me everything about your health. Just stay at home and have a good rest today!"

It was true. Jacob had known about Emily's condition back when he was in G Country. From what Taylor had told him, her illness seemed to be dangerous.

When he returned home, Jacob had called Taylor and asked for more details about Emily. What he had heard made him feel distressed for a long time. Emily's condition had begun to deteriorate before Jacob went abroad. She hadn't wanted Jacob to be worried about her while going to a meeting and thus, she had hidden the issue about her health.

'I have been so busy with the business recently that I neglected her.' Jacob's frown deepened at this. That was why he hadn't gone to the company today. He wanted to stay at home with Emily.

Emily didn't know how to react. She was surprised that Jacob had found out on his own. But then, she should have expected this to happen. "You already know everything..." She lowered her head. Her voice was pitifully low as if she was a child who was on the verge of punishment.

Jacob's arms tightened around her. "If I hadn't asked, were you going to tell me? Huh?"

Emily knew the answer would be no, but she didn't utter a word. She just slightly rubbed her cheeks against Jacob's chest and shifted her body into a comfortable position. Just when she opened her mouth to say something, Jacob's voice cut her off. "Now that I'm back, I'll help you in taking care of your mind and body at home." Jacob paused for a while and stared at her head. "If you neglect your health again, I won't allow you to go out."

His tone was both soft and stern.

The corner of Emily's lips curved up. This man was always so overbearing, but she liked it!
