The next day, before dawn, Jacob was awakened by a phone call from his father. He changed his clothes and left in a hurry.

His father David Gu's one right-hand man who was addicted to gambling, had owed a great deal of debts. And he was forced to pay off his gambling debts. What's more, he also leaked many of the Gu family's business secrets and economic trends, which brought a lot of losses to the Gu family. However, David was not a mediocre person and he soon found something wrong, so he asked people to take back the man who was about to escape by ship.

When Jacob arrived, the man whose hands were tied behind his back was kneeling in front of David's mahogany desk, apologizing.

"You've been with me for so many years. You should know that the people I hate most in my life are those who betray me."

The bodyguard around David stepped forward and removed his arms.


His scream echoed in the large study, which made Jacob frown.

"You just got up?" There was no sign of anger on David's face, instead, he looked at Jacob casually.

Jacob knew his father well. The man kneeling on the floor would have a bad ending.

But what he didn't understand was why his father suddenly asked him to come over?

This kind of thing had happened before, but David, who was a strong man, had never let Jacob see such a bloody scene.

"Yes." Jacob walked over and stood beside David.

"Did you go for a drink last night?" David sniffed and asked again.

However, Jacob didn't show his surprise on his face. Instead, he nodded and said naturally, "Frank invited me, I've been drinking several glasses of wine."

"Although you are still young, you should pay attention to your health."


As Jacob was listening to his father's advice, he glanced at the man kneeling on the ground. The man was so painful that his throat became hoarse. His face was deathly pale, and cold sweat kept falling down.

David also saw that and he winked at the bodyguard.

The bodyguard walked over and stepped on the man's ankle. With a slight crack, the man screamed again.

"I was wrong, Mr. David. I know I was wrong. Please give me a chance. I will take the money back and make up for this mistake. Please, please, Mr. David."

The man began to kowtow madly on the ground, with his blood splashing on the marble floor.

"Do you think what I care about is the money?" The corners of David's eyes were full of disgust when he spoke.

The man who kowtowed to David suddenly stopped, looking at him in despair.

"How about you tell me what will happen to the person who betrayed me?" David reached out his body towards him, as if he was really asking.

The man on the ground began to tremble, and his shivering lips moved word by word out.

"Is... Worse... Than... Death."

David nodded with a smile. Then he turned to Jacob and asked as if he had gotten an advice, "what do you think we should do?"

Jacob was stunned by his father's question. He gave his father a deep look and knew that David wasn't really asking him.

"Young master, please let me go. As long as you let me go, I will do anything you ask me to

do." The men on their knees made a kowtow to Jacob in a distorted posture, and their bodies were already shaking like a sieve.

Jacob looked at him indifferently. There was no sympathy or blame on his face. A moment later, he said in a deep voice.

"Take him out and just do as usual."

The man who was kowtowing to Jacob trembled with fear. He glared at Jacob like a dead fish, trembling.

The bodyguards didn't move. They all looked at David.

Obviously, they were waiting for the instruction from David.

With a smile, David waved his hand and said, "Okay, just do as Jacob said."

"Yes, my Lord."

Quickly, the bodyguards dragged that man out of the study. There were only Jacob and his father left in a moment.

"Why did you ask them to take him out? Are you afraid of blood?" David squinted at his son, who was cultivated by him.

Jacob poured a cup of tea for his father and answered indifferently, "I just think his dirty blood will stain the floor."

David smiled.

He wore a light but complicated smile. Although Jacob was his son, he still felt scared when he looked at his father.

He stared at Jacob for a while and said slowly, "we, the Gu family, will never allow anyone to betray us. You got it?"

Jacob raised his head and looked into David's eyes. He had heard it from David many times before, but this time, he realized something different.

His eyes grew cold slowly and he nodded quietly.

"Yes, father."

That day, Jacob worked until the midnight. David had told him to deal with the mess left by the traitors. The mess was much more important than his previous projects. Determined to take it seriously, Jacob immediately worked with his people and make strategies, minimize the loss and strike back at the same time.

After everything was done, Jacob felt a little relieved.

He went downstairs tiredly. Then he thought of Nicole when he saw the car parked in front of his company.

The sudden incident was so serious that he had temporarily forgotten Nicole.

"Go to the apartment on the PS Road." Jacob got in the car and said to the driver.

'A whole day has passed. That woman must have left. It seemed that she was pretty mad last night, ' he thought.

Why did she get angry so easily? Well, compared with what I had experienced before, how could she get angry so easily?'

Jacob leaned against the seat and closed his eyes, lost in thought.

It was even more messy than the difficult accounts that his father had given him.

Jacob even had the urge to go back to work, leaving all these thoughts behind.

But before he could change his mind, the driver had already driven the car to the door of the villa.

"Go to rest." Jacob cast a glance at the villa, got out of the car and walked inside quickly.

He knew that Nicole was gone. He could not see her even if he came back.

But he didn't even notice that he was looking forward to someone waiting for him here.

After entering the room, Jacob looked at the empty room and was stunned. He threw his suit jacket on the sofa casually and walked upstairs step by step.

With every step he took, his face darkened.
