(No one loved Emily more than he did)
Jacob squinted at Emily, the fire glowing in his eyes, like an olympic torch. The next minute he grabbed Emily's hands and pressed his lips on her mouth and then her chin.
With Emily's collar being tugged aside by Jacob, he kissed everywhere, from her exposed snowy neck down to her collarbone, to her shoulders...
"No... Stop...I have to go..." Emily complained, trying to push Jacob away. However, soon she had to give up because she was being kissed by him so hard that she
could not struggle any more.
She could only feel the wardrobe shaking and swaying, back and forth, before it finally stopped after nearly an hour.
When Jacob carried Emily from the wardrobe to the bed, she felt completely exhausted, like she was going to have a breakdown.
She wobled up and murmured, "You jerk. My mom's waiting for me. Did you do that on purpose? Huh?" Before she finished whining, Jacob turned her over, pressed his entire body on her again and said, "One more time."
"No... No more... Get off."
Emily tried to refuse Jacob, but then her voice turned into murmurs as Jacob continued to invade her without heeding her refusal.
When everything was over, Emily was too exhausted to think of anything else. Soon she drifted off to sleep, leaving everything behind.
After kissing Emily's forehead softly, Jacob walked out of the bedroom.
Just a few minutes before he left, he coaxed Emily into taking a shower to wash the sweat off of her body before he got her into the bed and covered her with a quilt.
"Stay outside the room. When she wakes up, bring her some warm food," Jacob told his butler.
"I will, Mr. Jacob."
After speaking with the butler, Jacob left his mansion and drove to the address Debby had given Emily.
Several minutes later, Jacob arrived at the destination. The moment he walked toward the room and pushed open the door, he saw Abbott and his wife sitting inside. Almost immediately his face darkened.
'Just as I expected, they are controlling everything behind the stage, ' thought Jacob.
Abbott and Bess were distraught waiting for Emily. When the door was pushed open, they had their hearts in their mouth. However, they were surprised and disappointed to find that the person who walked in was Jacob.
"Well. It seems like you are disappointed to see me here," Jacob said, walking towards the couple. With no emotion in his eyes, he first stared at the couple; then when he noticed Debby, who was cowering in the corner, silently, he chuckled.
Abbott and Bess were beyond disappointed, as they had expected to see their daughter, but now Jacob was standing in front of them, all by himself.
Thinking of what Jacob had done to stop them from seeing Emily, Abbott showed a disgusted look at Jacob and asked, "Mr. Jacob, what are you doing here?"
Bess kept looking behind Jacob, in hopes of seeing Emily. "Where is Emily? We want to see Emily, not you," she said.
"Emily? You have no right to call her name like that," Jacob said, standing still looking down at all three of them, and then he continued, "Emily is my girl. If you want to see her, you need to get permission from me first. How dare you secretly call her and ask her to meet you without asking for my approval?"
"What do you mean by 'my girl'?" Abbott blew up all of a sudden, and he added, "Emily is not yours. We are her birth parents. She is a daughter of our family!"
"Don't you feel ashamed to say that? Where were you when she was a little girl? Have you ever taken care of her? No. You just gave everything she should have had to that spoiled brat you like to call your daughter. You are not qualified to be her parents. If you want to have a daughter without putting in the effort, you'd better get rid of you pie-in-the-sky fantasies, then you might actually get somewhere in life!"
Jacob sneered, as his mouth curled up.
Disgruntled by Jacob's words, Abbott retorted, "After we bring her back home, we will give anything she wants to make up for what we had done to her!"
"What can you give her? Money? Houses? Social status? Do you think that is what she wants?" he scoffed.
"Jacob, do you think you are entitled to interfere with Emily's choices just because she loves you?" Bess suddenly interrupted them. Since, she was Emily's mother, she regarded Jacob as her son-in-law and she felt like she was not at all satisfied with this son-in-law.
"Then I will disappoint you. I will interfere with everything about Emily, even if you don't like it. To tell you the truth, you are nothing in my eyes," he answered, indifferently.
"You...You..." Bess was so angry with Jacob's arrogance and rude words that she could hardly come up anything else apart from "you".
"You are totally different from those great parents. You don't love Emily at all. You just want to use her to fill the void in your life. In truth, you don't have any love for her!" he explained.
No one loved Emily more than Jacob did!
Biting into her lips, Bess wept as her voice shivered and asked, "How do you know that we don't love her? She is our daughter. It is natural that we love her more than anything in the world!"
"Oh. Really?" asked Jacob. Although, he smiled up to his ears, his eyes frightened Bess. "So why did you take her blood to save Tina who has nothing to do with you?" he asked.
"It was an emergency. Tina is not an irrelevant person to us and her life was at stake at that time. Besides, you took back the bag of blood later..." Bess said. She did not realize how possessive Jacob was until now. Jacob wouldn't even allow Emily's blood to be transfused to anyone else, even if that person's life was at stake.
'I can't stand this man! When we get Emily home, I will urge her to break up with Jacob!' thought Bess.
"Tina has nothing to do with me or Emily. As a matter of fact, Tina hates Emily. You need to know the truth. How about this? If you kick Tina out of your family, I will believe that you love Emily. Isn't that fair?" said Jacob.
"You are such a glib-tongued person!" Abbot screamed. With obvious anger on his face, he slammed his fist on the table and roared, "Emily is my daughter, and so is Tina! They will be sisters. Nothing will change that!"
Jacob sneered coldly, "'Sisters'? Come on. It would be a misfortune for Emily to have such a wicked sister. I guess she would have to be alert all the time in case of being killed by her sister."
"You..." said Bess, having lost her patience.
"Since you still love Tina, you can just treat her as your only daughter. Anyway, you have already been her parents for more than twenty years. You can continue to do so," said Jacob.
"Emily is also our daughter!" Abbott asserted.
"Do you want to have both Tina and Emily? How greedy you are! You will never have the chance to fulfil your daydreams," Jacob replied. He darkened his face, making all the other people in the room feel uneasy. "You can't take Emily back as long as I am with her.
Emily... SHE IS MINE," Jacob added, enunciating every syllable distinctly.
'I will not allow anyone to take her away from me!' he told himself.
Jacob's voice pierced the mind of Abbott and Bess. When they raised their heads and saw the coldness in Jacob's eyes, they felt the hair on their skin rise up.
'Jacob really is a tough nut to crack, ' thought Abbott.
The Tao couple wondered whether it was good or bad for Emily to be loved by Jacob. It seemed that Emily lived an enviable life with Jacob, but, if she ever displeased him accidentally, they feared she might be thrown into the abyss.
Nevertheless, Abbott would not give up the idea of taking Emily back home. Furthermore, he would do everything in his power to break up the relationship between Emily and Jacob!
At this moment, it was evident that the negotiations between him and Jacob had broken down.
Jacob had no intentions of staying in the room for another minute. He glared at Debby, who was still cowering with fear in the corner, as if he wanted to tear her to pieces with his cold gaze.
"And you," he said to Debby, and added, "You raised Emily. If not for that reason, I wouldn't have spared your life so easily!"
Immediately, Debby understood the real meaning of Jacob's words.
"I didn't mean to do it. Please forgive me," Debby pleaded, lowering her head as she was afraid that Jacob would kill her if she looked at him directly.
Having lost all his patience with Debby, Jacob said, "Get lost now. By the way, if you admire the Tao family so much, I suggest you beg them to adopt you. After all, they are eager to have another daughter."
