(Are you silly)
Tina was lying on bed, pale as a ghost, waiting for the blood transfusion. No one noticed a doctor sneaked into her ward.
Perhaps because the person looked like a doctor, everyone just assumed he was a doctor. With a syringe in his hand, he was just about to stab one of Tina's veins...
"What are you doing? " Mark shouted in confusion. He had just walked out of the ward for some air, and when he was walking back, he noticed this doctor sneaking in.
However, when Mark tried to stop him, several people came in and grabbed Mark from behind. When Mark turned around he found Jacob standing there, staring at him coldly.
"Jacob, stop him right now!" Mark shouted angrily, "Anyone there? Where are you guys?"
'Where are those bodyguards? Crap! I won't let Jacob hurt Tina!'
"How much blood did you draw from Emily? I'll take twice the amount of that from Tina!" Jacob said coldly and fiercely.
"No! No way! She'll die!" Mark struggled fiercely and got away from the people who were holding him back. He rushed to Tina's bed and pushed the fake doctor away.
"Get out of my way," Jacob sneered, "I must take her blood today!"
"No way!" Mark cried out in refusal.
"Mr. Tao, we're ready to proceed with the the blood transfusion..." A nurse said, as she just walked into the room with a bag of blood in her hands. But when she walked in and saw what was happening here, she was stunned. She exclaimed, "What... what's going on here?"
Jacob noticed the blood bag and asked, "Is this Emily's blood? Give it to me."
Mark screamed at the nurse, "Do not give it to him!"
The nurse hid the blood bag behind her back and shook her head at Jacob.
Jacob glanced at her coldly, and threatened, "If you don't give it to me willingly, we'll snatch it from you. But I can't promise whether you'll get hurt or not."
When all of Jacob's bodyguards stared at the nurse coldly, she got frightened and surrendered the bag of blood to Jacob. "... If you don't use it any time soon, remember to keep it frozen..." she murmured. Jacob, held the blood bag in his hand and smiled victoriously. "Okay, you can leave now," he said.
The nurse wasted no time, as she scampered out of the room as if she were being chased away by a wild animal.
Feeling the weight of the blood bag, Jacob's face became gloomy. He said, "You drew so much blood from Emily. How dare you!"
Defeated, Mark stared at Jacob silently with a gloomy expression on his face.
"I don't have time to deal with you today," Jacob sneered. He turned around to leave, but before he rushed out of the room in a hurry, he added, "If you pull something like this again, I won't think twice about killing you then and there."
"Bang!" Mark punched the wall with his bare fist, as hatred filled his eyes slowly.
'He took the blood away. How do I save Tina now?
Jacob that jerk!'
Not so far away from Tina' ward, Debby who was hiding behind a wall, watched as the whole thing unfolded. Her heart pounded fiercely in fear and anxiousness over Tina's health.
'What should I do? Jacob cares about Emily so much! If he finds out that I was the one who asked her to give her blood to Tina, what would he do to me? And Tina doesn't have blood for the transfusion anymore. What should I do? '
Jacob took the blood back to the hospital where Emily was, and handed it to the dean.
"How did you manage to find the blood so quickly? I'll ask to prepare for the transfusion right away," the dean said. Then he asked nurses and doctors to begin the process of transfusion.
Having had blood transferred into her system, the color on Emily's face gradually started to return, as she woke up after a few hours of sleep.
"Where am I? What's wrong with me?" Emily asked. She looked confused and startled at the sight of all the nurses around her.
The next moment, a slender finger poked her forehead.
"Emily, are you that silly? Do you know how much blood they took from you? And you didn't even think to refuse? Damn it!" Jacob said. He sounded disappointed and furious.
Emily was stunned by Jacob's sudden bombardment of accusations. She looked at the man standing in front of her angrily, as tears suddenly replaced the puzzlement in her eyes.
"Why are you being to rude to me?" Emily murmured, as tears trickled down her face one drop at a time.
"What... what are you crying for?" he asked. Jacob became nervous upon seeing Emily's tears. He quickly pulled Emily into his arms and comforted her. "No, I'm not being rude to you. I'm just angry that you let them take so much blood from you. I got really worried, you know..."
Emily wept in his arms for a while. After a while she wiped the tears from her face and raised her head.
When she saw the blood bag hanging from above, she asked, "This blood.."
"It's your own blood," Jacob answered.
"What?" Surprised, Emily opened her eyes wide and asked, "How come it is mine? I gave my blood to..."
"I snatched it back from Tina," he said, with a displeased expression on his face.
Baffled, Emily didn't know what to believe. She stammered, "Snatched... snatched it from... from Tina?"
"Yes. Where else could I find your blood? You silly girl! Do you even know how much blood they tried to take from you? 800CC! If they had drawn a little more than 800CC, you would have been dead!" Jacob said.
She had no idea how much blood was drawn from her. The doctor only told me that they would only take 400CC of blood!
They lied to me! 'I don't have to think hard enough to know that it must have been the people from the Tao family who asked the doctor to take that much blood from me!'
Jacob pinched her cheek and asked, "Tell me. What happened?"
Emily decided to keep the truth from Jacob that Debby was the one who had asked her to give blood to Tina, because she didn't want to make him angry again. "Actually, I decided to give my blood. But I didn't know that they would draw so much blood from me..." she murmured.
Discontented, Jacob became angrier, and he shouted, "Emily, why are you so stupid! Whether Tina lives or dies, is none of your concern! You almost lose your own life!"
"I'm sorry, Jacob; please forgive me..." Emily raised her head and pleaded. She added, "I don't know what I was thinking, but I promise that it will never happen again..."
"There better not be a next time!" he asserted
"No, no, there won't!" she answered. Emily hugged Jacob tightly, as she rested her face on his firm chest.
She drew warmth from his body, as the love from his embrace slowly brought her back to life.
'You see, there is a person who loves me selflessly, sincerely and unconditionally.'
Although the cold winter wind was blowing outside, here inside Emily's heart, the summer sun was shining bright as ever.
Jacob knew that Emily was lying to him. But since she didn't want to tell him, he decided not to force her. In any case, he was more than capable of finding out the truth by himself.
Jacob hugged Emily tightly. He rested his chin on her head and said, "I forbid you to do such things anymore. You belong to me, in all your entirety, including your blood, hair and even your fingernails, understand?"
Jacob said assertively and then he squeezed Emily's rosy cheeks as punishment.
Emily winked at him and asked, "So I can't cut my hair or fingernails?" "Only I can cut them for you," Jacob declared.
Although it was not a conventional way of expressing love, Emily still blushed red and felt the warmth of his love inside her heart, "... I'm not a puppy. I can do it myself... Hahaha,"
Emily said and then burst out laughing.
