Nicole looked at the door instinctively and her heart beat faster when she heard the familiar voice.

And she was right.

She gawked at Jacob as he walked into the door. Her wet eyes reddened.

She didn't want to be seen like this by Jacob.

"You... Who are you?"

Sabina stared at the man who had suddenly appeared. She didn't realize what had happened until he walked up to her.

The man in front of her was dressed in a black, well-tailored suit, which was expensive to any sensible person. Moreover, the tailored suit accentuated his broad shoulders, long legs. He looked noble and handsome.

It was her first time to see such a gentleman in her real life.

Sabina was stunned and her arrogance was dejected at what she said.

But she didn't receive any response from Jacob.

Jacob stared at Nicole, who was squatting on the ground and raising her head. He cracked a smile and said, "Go now."

Nicole was stunned. She couldn't believe that Jacob, who hated her so much, would help her.

Was it her illusion?

When she was wondering if she was dreaming, she was pulled up by Jacob and forcefully pulled out of the room.

"Wait!"

But Sabina soon regained her composure and followed them out.

Jacob, who was standing in front of the elevator, turned around and looked at Sabina impatiently.

Although he didn't say anything, it was apparent that there was full of impatience in his eyes.

"She can't go. She stole something from my house."

Sabina was afraid of Jacob's eyes, so she aimed at Nicole.

Nicole didn't expect that Sabina would slander her like that. And she immediately retorted for herself in front of Jacob, "I didn't!"

"You sneaked out to check the drawers and boxes when Austin wasn't at home. Then you were caught by me. How dare you claim that you didn't do that? You are a thief!"

Nicole was trembling, "You, you are talking nonsense. I just came to get my own things back!"

She looked at Jacob in a hurry, fearing that he would believe what Sabina said.

Noticing Nicole's concern, Sabina turned to look at Jacob.

"Handsome, you should be careful. Don't be cheated by Nicole. The face is no index to the heart. She is pretending to be innocent. In fact, she loves money very much. Perhaps she is just a recidivist."

"No... I am not..."

Nicole wanted to refute, but she suddenly remembered what happened five years ago. She looked at Jacob with a fragile expression in her eyes.

Jacob heaved a sigh.

He looked back at Nicole and said disappointedly, "After all these years, I didn't expect that you are still like this."

"No, I'm not."

Just one simple sentence from Jacob made Nicole feel like falling into an ice cave.

She didn't expect that Jacob would trust Sabina instead of her.

Maybe she should have expected the result when she promised to Jacob's mother to leave Jacob five years ago.

Nicole turned her head, not trying to defend herself anymore.

"Hey, let me tell you the truth. She's really a liar. Hey, buddy, my Austin..."

"This is my assistant's business card. You can call me

if she has stolen anything. I will pay for it."

With the sound of "Ding", the elevator door opened. Jacob interrupted Sabina's nonsense ruthlessly and pulled Nicole into the elevator.

When the elevator door was closed in front of Sabina, she looked at the gold-plated business card in her hand, dumbfounded.

She thought that an assistant could have such a good business card.

This man must have power.

Sabina grinned. She had planned to play hooky from work to sleep, but didn't expect to see this.

This man was far more handsome and outstanding than Austin.

In normal times, Sabina didn't dare to imagine a future husband like Jacob. But when she saw Nicole and Jacob together, she became confident.

She believed that since she could take Austin away from Nicole, she would definitely take Jacob as well.

Besides, it seemed that this handsome man didn't have a crush on Nicole.

Satisfied, Sabina carefully put the card into her bag and came up with a new plan.

Nicole stumbled out of the community, hand in hand, until she was put into the car.

"What the hell do you want?" Nicole said without any expression.

Jacob fixed his clothes and let his eyes settle upon Nicole. After a while, he said slowly, "You lied to me again."

With her lips tightly closed and her fingernails pinching the paper bag in her arms, Nicole looked away and said to Jacob, "I didn't steal anything."

"And you didn't divorce?"

Jacob pinched her chin and forced her to face him.

"Your husband had an affair with your bestie, and you're divorced, aren't you?"

Nicole turned pale in an instant. She was forced to look at Jacob. From his eyes, she could see clearly her own awkwardness.

She was a complete loser.

"Aren't you good at deceiving men? Why did you fail this time?"

Jacob's words cut right to the heart.

Nicole closed her eyes and tears rolled down her cheeks. She asked Jacob with a bitter smile, "Since you hate me so much, why did you help me just now?"

She had rather be framed by Sabina than be trampled like this.

At least, she wouldn't feel hurt!

Jacob was stunned. Then he snorted, "Now that you know I helped you, shouldn't you express your gratitude?"

"You..."

Nicole's mouth was shut as soon as she said one word.

Nicole's mind went blank at that moment.

Until the tip of her tongue was bit.

Nicole suddenly came back to her senses. All her blood rushed to her face, and she forcefully pushed the person pressing on her away.

"Let me go... Let..."

She was kissed more deeply. Nicole pushed him away with all her strength.

Gasping, the two looked at each other.

They could both see the affection in each other's eyes.

This kiss was not as pure as it was several years ago.

Jacob seemed to be unhappy.

"Be my woman."

Nicole's chest heaved up and down. Jacob's kiss was so imperious that she was lost in it for a moment.

She stared at Jacob, and as if she had seen the man who use to be.

Unfortunately, the next second, Jacob brutally broke her fantasy.

"Nicole, name your price."
