Season 3

Episode 54

(Sooner or later justice will prevail)

Mark stared at Tina quietly and the disappointment was evident on his face.    

Tina was disoriented by Mark's slap, but when she slowly came to her senses. She began to laugh hysterically. "Mark, don't you think you're being too dramatic? Love? What's that?" she taunted.    

Repulsed, Mark pursed his lips, as he did not bother to give her an answer.    

Suddenly, Tina's face transformed, as if she had finally discarded all her masks and disguises. "Do you really believe that you can control me? Give me what I want, or else, get out of my sight!" Tina yelled.  

"I am not going anywhere,"  Mark said calmly, "Try to calm down, Tina."    

"How can I calm down? My inside is going crazy right now! You and everyone else are driving me mad!" 

she cried out. Suddenly, a bolt of white hot lightning crackled against the black sky, illuminating Tina's wide-eyed, ugly face, as she appeared like a terrifying beast emerging from the half-light of the encroaching night.    

Mark turned around to pick up a box of withdrawal pills and said, "Here, take this! This will help with the pain for now."  

Tina knocked down the box and screamed, "Get out!"    

Disheartened, Mark bent down silently and picked up the box. He opened the lid, took out one pill and put it in his mouth.    

Before Tina knew it, Mark pulled her face close and kissed her with raw intensity. The first moan escaped Tina's lips. Their tongues entwined, and he sent the bitter pill into her mouth.    

By the time Mark pulled away, Tina was breathless, gasping for air. The pill was long gone, swallowed by Tina.  

However, the withdrawal pill was not strong enough to suppress Tina's pain, as she began to curse Jacob and Emily like a madwoman.    
However, she never mentioned Mark, as he had never been important enough to her. She did not even want to hate him...    

This was going to be another sleepless night.    


In the meantime, when Jacob came back to the Gu Consortium, he found that Jack had made many changes right under his nose. 

However, since Jacob had a solid foundation within the company, Jack wasn't able to cause much trouble for him.  

The most important one was Mr. Gu.    

Jacob used to constantly test Mr. Gu's patience just to see how much Mr. Gu could tolerate. Unfortunately, from the looks of it, Mr. Gu had lost all his patience with Jacob now.    

Mr. Gu wanted to control Jacob by stripping away his influence within the company. However, much to everyone's surprise, Jacob was a majority shareholder in the Gu Consortium. One should never forget that the climax always came in the end.    

Jacob couldn't not hide the malice in his eyes, when he looked back at the past ten years. Eventually, everyone had to pay the piper someday. No matter who he was, Mr. Gu, or anyone else in the Gu family.  

But right now, Jacob had more pressing matters to attend to. The killer of Emily's parents was still out there and if he wanted to prove Emily's innocence, he would have to find out the truth behind their deaths. Only then would Emily be safe.    

However, as Jacob began his investigation, the media outlets in Jingshi City began to report the news of Emily's arrest. The headlines read—" The Girlfriend of Gu Consortium Is Suspected of Murdering Her Foster Parents."  

Soon, Emily was cast aside by everyone in Jingshi City.    

Jacob tried his best to cover up most of fake news, but he could not cover everyone's mouth.    

"The Tao family are so petty that they did not even mind exposing themselves to insult Emily!" Jacob snapped. Driven mad with anger, Jacob slammed his fist on the table!    

Sam, who was standing next to him, gingerly, said, "Mr. Jacob we must find the murderer quickly and soon the rumors will disappear on its own."    

Jacob answered coldly, "I know that. Let's begin our investigation with the Tao family."  

"Yes, sir,"  said Sam.    

Jacob would visit Emily at the detention house every night to make sure that she wasn't treated wrongly by anyone. Jacob had his men in the station and he came over every night like it was his second home in the city. His very presence pressured the chief of police and everybody else also made sure not to cross Emily, fearing Jacob's wrath.    

Even then, Emily's heart was at unease as she hated being locked up in a small room, like a helpless animal.    

She wondered who would hate her parents enough to kill them? Before long, she started to imagine killing them in the same heartless way!  

killing them in the same heartless way!    

Even in her dreams, Emily would see her parents scolding her with their white pale faces. "Why haven't you avenged our death? You must find the murderer! Find the murderer!" they would say.    

When Emily woke up from a restless sleep, it was already dawn. 

Dazed, she rubbed her tired eyes, unable to tell dream from reality.    

"Emily, the charges against you have been settled,"  A policewoman said, in a cold voice, which grabbed Emily's undying attention. "Just leave your fingerprint here,"  she added.    

Puzzled, Emily looked at the her and the paper in front of her for a while, before she finally understood what the policewoman was talking about. 

Emily widened her eyes in disbelief, and said, "That's impossible. The investigation isn't over yet. I am not going to admit to a crime I did not commit!"  

"It's not for you to decide whether you've committed the crime or not!" the policewoman hummed coldly. She reached out and caught Emily's finger to dip it in the ink paste.    

At that moment, Emily realized that Jacob's followers were all gone and she was not in the same detention house as before.  

"I will not leave my fingerprint! I did not kill anyone! I'm not the murderer!" yelled Emily.    

"If you refuse a toast, you must drink a forfeit!" said the policewoman. The policewoman's disposition had changed. She was no longer swayed by Jacob's threats. There was only malice for Emily in her eyes.    

"I want to see Jacob! Let go of me!" Emily cried out.    

"Mr. Jacob will not see you! Do you know what he is doing now? He is busy trying to cover up the scandal of your murders in Jingshi City!" said the policewoman.    

In truth, Jacob was being pressured by several people, and so his reach was not as great as it once used to be.  

Therefore, under the pressure of Mr. Gu and Mark, Emily's crime was directly settled.    

"Even though my crime is going to be settled, it must through the court! And not so randomly like what you did! This isn't over yet. My life is on the line here. This is a criminal case!" yelled Emily.    

"We're just following orders!" she said to Emily. The policewoman was so strong that she yanked Emily's hand and forced her to leave a fingerprint on the document!    

"You..." Emily mumbled, finding herself at a loss for words. 

Shocked, Emily widened her eyes in utter disbelief and suddenly, darkness had surrounded her mind once again.  

The policewoman took away the document and then left Emily to her despair.    

Emily slowly clenched her fist and bit her lip tightly, thinking, '"We're just following orders"? Whose orders was she following?    

Who on earth wants me dead so badly? That person must be related to the murder! Sooner or later, justice will prevail!'    


Jack hadn't seen Emily in days, but he was busy trying to find evidence that could prove Emily's innocence. Unfortunately, he couldn't find anything credible yet.  

Jack was certain that Emily was not the kind of person who would kill another human being, let alone her foster parents. Emily couldn't even hurt a fly. How could she kill her own parents?    

However, if someone had told Jack that the murderer was Tina Tao, he would have believed it in a heartbeat.    

Tina? Jack seemed to have come up with a thought, as his eyes glimmered with hope, thinking about all the things that had happened between the Bai family and the Tao family. Without delay, he decided to investigate Tina Tao.  

However, Jacob had already beaten jack to the punch.
