It was only then that Jacob realized that he hadn't had any free time in quite a while.

Despite his age and being a father to three children, Jacob was still as strong as he had used to be. Playing badminton with two energetic children was no easy task. Surprisingly, he was able to keep up with his kids even after playing for more than an hour. He didn't feel as tired as he thought he would. He even volunteered to fetch the shuttlecock after every match. At some point, Beryl hit the shuttlecock, and it landed on a tree. Jacob, strong as ever, effortlessly jumped up and took it out of the tree branch. Witnessing their father's strength, the two children couldn't help but clap their hands and cheer happily for him.

Emily was quite impressed by Jacob's stamina. After playing badminton for a few hours, Beryl and Bowen finally felt exhausted. So, their mother quickly urged them to take a shower and go to bed. Jacob knew that he could get some alone time with his wife once the kids went to sleep.

"Let's go upstairs and get some rest," he suggested to Emily as he put his arm around her shoulder. Judging from the look in his eyes, he intended to do more than just rest. He couldn't wait to make love to her.

However, Emily decided to tease a little and pretended that she had no idea about what his plans were. She wordlessly went upstairs without even looking at her husband. At the same time, a servant came out of a room upstairs and hurriedly headed downstairs.

In his haste, he didn't notice Emily coming up the stairs and accidentally bumped into her on his way down. This caused Emily to lose her balance. She staggered back and missed a step on the stairs. Jacob's eyes widened in fear when he saw his wife on the verge of falling backward.

Luckily, he was quick on his feet and rushed towards Emily. He managed to catch her just in time. He couldn't even begin to contemplate what would have happened if he hadn't reached her in time.

Furrowing his brows, he turned to the servant. "What is wrong with you? You should watch where you're going! Didn't you hear someone coming up the stairs?" Jacob yelled at him. After making sure that his wife was safe and sound, Jacob scolded the servant, "Mrs. Gu was going up the stairs. I don't mind if you had an urgent matter to attend to downstairs, but how could you fail to notice her? Are you blind or something?"

A frightened Emily lightly touched her chest; her heart was racing from what had just happened. She took a deep breath before looking up at the man in front of them. Emily squinted at the servant and noted that this was the first time that she had seen him. "Are you new here?"

Quickly, the servant nodded and muttered an apology. "I am so sorry. I didn't notice…"

How could he say that he hadn't noticed a person in front of him? Upon hearing what the servant had just said, Jacob clenched his jaw. But he paused for a second and remembered that the man had been in a hurry, and that he had looked a bit flustered when he bumped into Emily. Jacob blinked at him suspiciously and promptly made a decision. "Since your eyesight is so poor, I don't think you're suited to work here. Just go back..."

Without waiting for Jacob to finish his sentence, the servant pleaded with teary eyes, "No, please. I am really sorry." He clasped his hand together and added, "Several minutes ago, I was scolded by the housekeeper for doing something wrong, so I wasn't in the right state of mind... Please forgive me. I need this job because my parents and kids rely on me for financial support. I have to earn some money for my family. Please be kind to me and give me another chance, sir."

It looked like the servant was ready to kneel down just to beg to Jacob an

tity was immediately compromised!" Darren shouted at Harlan, his eyes were burning with rage. "I think you already know that Jacob is a man with a plan, right? Jacob is known for his remarkable intuitions. So, did you think that he was going to be easily deceived by such obvious tricks?" Harlan replied patiently.

Exasperated huffs came out of Darren's mouth as he paced around the office, waiting for Harlan to get to his point.

Darren had always regarded this plan to be his last bargaining chip. However, he hadn't expected that he would be defeated so soon. Now, he had nothing! How could he be willing to accept this shameful failure?!

Surprisingly, Harlan seemed calm as his eyes followed Darren, who was still pacing back and forth in the office. An enigmatic smile appeared on Harlan's face. He said, "I know what kind of opponent we are facing. So, think of this as a diversion. Jacob would focus on that servant and he would believe that he had gotten rid of the bad seed."

Upon hearing Harlan's explanation, Darren halted and turned to him with wide eyes. "Do you mean…"

Without waiting for Darren to finish talking, Harlan nodded. "I just wanted to make Jacob let his guard down, even just a little bit. We just need an opening. That's why I arranged for the servant to recklessly search through his study. Just take it easy, boss. Our man is still in the Tyrone Mansion. The good news is that now that they've caught the diversion we planted there, our real spy won't be suspected anymore." There was a confident look in Harlan's eyes. He was satisfied that this plan had worked out the way it was supposed to. "Mr. Xu, please trust me. We will get that key, no matter what," he added in an optimistic tone.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the city,

Bonnie's parents missed their daughter very much. It had been a long time since they had seen her.

So, her father sent a message to her cellphone, saying, "Bonnie, are you free tonight? Your mother and I haven't seen you in such a long time. We miss you a lot." Her cellphone lay quietly on the tea table. All of a sudden, the screen lit up, indicating that there was a text message.

On the other side of the room, Darren had just finished his shower. His hair was still dripping wet when he walked out of the bathroom.

The sudden ping of the cellphone caught his attention, and he immediately walked over to the table. When he saw that it was Bonnie's phone, he wiped his hand and quickly picked up the phone.
