"Who do you think it is?" Jonas asked. Finding out that Emily had an idea about who was behind all this gave him hope.

Until now, he had thought that he had been targeted by kidnappers. However, Emily's words piqued his interest.

He also wanted to know whom he had pissed off so much that they would want to have him killed.

"I suspect that it's Jacob who's behind this. Now, there's nothing I can do except to apologize on his behalf. I know you're hurt, but I hope you don't take this matter too seriously." Emily stood up and moved as if she was about to take a deep bow.

Jonas wanted to stop her, but he couldn't move because of his injuries. He could only watch her as she began this gesture of remorse.

She was about to bend forward when she felt a pair of thick hands stopping her and pulling her back up.

Before she could turn around to see who the person was, she heard Jacob's familiar voice.

"Wow! What an amazing actor you are, Dr. Lin. And I admire not only your acting but your endurance as well. You're really something." A knowing smile formed on Jacob's face.

"What are you talking about, Mr. Gu? I don't understand," Jonas replied. Although he lay on the bed unable to move, he did not give in to the other man's provocation.

Jacob sneered as he watched Jonas. 'This man is doing a great job of disguising his true feelings. It's amazing how calm he still is!' he thought.

"What a fraud! To gain Emily's sympathy, you even used your own body as bait. Just brilliant!" Jacob continued.

"Mr. Gu, I really don't know what you're talking about. I think this must be some sort of misunderstanding," Jonas said with an innocent expression on his face.

'Huh. Now, look who's playing dumb? Is this all that Jonas has?

He doesn't even have the balls to admit what he has done. What kind of a person is he?' Jacob thought to himself. He was growing anxious about Jonas's performance. No matter what he said, Jonas would not fess up to anything. Naturally, this upset Jacob all the more.

He had a lot more to say, but Emily stopped him.

"Jacob, don't you feel ashamed at all? What are yo

she busied herself with work, but inevitably, it was time to go home. When she arrived, it was already dark out.

Jacob got home a short while after she did. When he arrived, she was helping the servants bring hot dishes and warm rice to the table. She could also be heard instructing the children to wash their hands and have dinner. Emily was so preoccupied that she didn't even look in his direction.

Embarrassed, he took off his coat and handed it to a servant who was waiting patiently nearby. Then, he cleared his throat to indicate his presence.

Upon realizing that he had come, the kids ran to him and hugged him. The word "dad" sounded so sweet coming from their lips. He felt a little better.

No one spoke as they had dinner. Jacob couldn't say anything in front of the children. He couldn't wait until he could talk to Emily in private.

After dinner, Emily cleaned up after the children and asked a servant to watch over them as they played. Then, she sat down on a nearby chair to rest.

Jacob poured some water into a glass and placed it on the table in front of her. He began to speak. "I'm a little..."

She interrupted him. "We need to help Beryl finish her homework later. Please spare some time for that."

Jacob had wanted to say something gentle to placate Emily, but she had put a stop to his attempt. At that moment, he felt a little helpless, but there was no anger in his heart.
