(Do you really cheat on jacob)
Rita angrily stared at David who had broken into her home! She screamed, "David, what the hell are you doing? You can't just break into my home like this.
Are you crazy? Don't you remember your promise from before? Get the hell out of here!"
David already promised her before that he wouldn't break into her home again but this was an emergency. He pleaded, "Can we talk about this later? I'm already here anyway. Listen to me. I'm here to..."
Before he finished his sentence, he noticed Emily was right there standing next to Rita. "Emily? What are you doing here?" David cried out.
Rita showed her obvious distaste for his question, "Well, Who else do you expect to see?"
"Listen, I can explain. I mean..." David begged. David found himself misunderstanding Rita, so he eagerly explained, "You know, I just care about you so much. That's why I make such a mistake, otherwise I would not..."
"Out! Go out and go back where you came from," Rita screamed.
"Listen to me, honey!" David implored, his eyes glinting. He somehow looked pathetic but he just continued, "Please! This is the third floor! imagine if I fell to my death?"
Rita sneered at him, and said, "How so? Well, personally, that would be so much better for me then you can get out of my way and I can finally replace you!"
It hurt David to hear Rita saying all of these things but he kept his emotions to himself. He tried hard to hold back all his frustration and disappointment. "Rita, are you really not aware? I mean..." he asked, flustered.
Emily felt guilty as she watched the fight break out. "I'm sorry, this is my fault. I shouldn't have come here. I'm sorry for bothering you..." she muttered apologetically.
"What are you saying sorry for? You're my friend. You're welcome here any time," Rita assured her. Rita didn't look at David but she squeezed Emily's hand to comfort her.
David stared at Rita, biting his lower lip. Then he turned to Emily and said, "Emily, what are you doing here? Didn't you know that Jacob's looking everywhere for you?"
Emily paled at this. "You... you know?" she stuttered.
Since David knew Jacob was looking for her then soon enough Jacob would find out that Emily was at Rita's. All of her efforts to protect her baby would be for nothing.
"Let me take you back. Jacob's a complete mess," David said. All his anger had subsided when he found out that Emily was just the person Rita was hiding all along.
What he couldn't understand was why Rita had to hide her in the first place.
"Can you please not tell him that I'm here?" Emily pleaded. Emily looked anxious and she was almost begging David, "I, I can't let him find me..."
"Why? Did you and Jacob have a fight?" David asked. David couldn't understand why Emily was asking him to do this.
Rita didn't understand either. Emily was pregnant. Even if she did fight with Jacob, it didn't make sense that she was running away. What if something happened to her?
Rita had a different conjecture. "Is Jacob cheating on you? Does he have another woman?" she pressed.
Before Emily could even answer, David piped in. "That's impossible. Jacob would never cheat," he asserted.
David knew how much Jacob loved Emily. He would never believe it if anyone said Jacob had cheated on Emily.
Rita refuted him as usual, "Why would it be impossible? You men only think with your dicks instead of your brains!
Besides, Jacob and Emily aren't even good for one another."
"No, he didn't. He didn't do anything wrong," Emily explained because she didn't want anyone to misunderstand Jacob. She gathered all her courage to speak, "It's... it's my fault actually. I'm the one who should be sorry. It's just my fault, okay? I just can't... I can't be with him anymore..."
Rita and David stiffened at this. Did they have it wrong all this time? Because they knew how uncharacteristic it was of Emily to act like this.
In fact, to David, he would find it more believable if Jacob cheated on Emily than the other way around. Maybe it was because Emily acted so innocent and angelic all the time. How could she do that?
"What the hell is going on here? Emily, you know you can tell me anything. I will help you no matter what happens," Rita promised, concern filling her eyes.
Rita's words warmed Emily in heart. After Emily took a deep breath, she finally said, "This child is... is not Jacob's..."
And they finally understood.
Rita and David were taken aback - they couldn't believe this.
Emily was the perfect little angel to them. She was so well-behaved and sensible. She was so innocent! How could she do this!
Rita gathered herself and asked hesitantly, "Emily, did you really, I mean, cheat on Jacob?"
Emily wore a crooked smile on her face and she didn't want to talk about this anymore so she just answered simply, "It's a long story but this child isn't his. I didn't mean for it to happen but I mean... it was... it was an accident."
Rita's mind was racing but she didn't press further so she just asked, "What are you going to do now?"
"I want to keep the baby but Jacob doesn't," Emily answered flatly.
David was feeling a wave of emotions. 'And why would Jacob agree to that? There wasn't a man in the world who would agree to that!' David thought to himself. He asked angrily, "Do you know Jacob's still out there looking for you? He just called me last night asking me to help look for you. He wanted me to tell him immediately if I find out anything."
"David, don't! Please don't tell him," Emily begged. Emily was already panicking, "I just want to keep my baby.
This baby is the only family I have now. Both my parents have died, remember? I have no family now... but this baby...
I have nothing else. This baby is all I have. I can't lose this baby..." Emily said weakly.
David just looked blankly at Emily, "Don't think of it that way. I know it may be difficult to move on from losing your parents but you still have Jacob. You're not alone. You should know that he loves you so much. He's the one who loves you the most, okay? Maybe even better than your so-called parents. You're not alone, okay?" he comforted her.
"I don't deserve him anymore. I don't know how to be with him anymore and there's no way I'm ever going back to him," Emily answered.
"But you still love him, don't you? Because he does. He loves you so much. I don't know what's going on, but Jacob's going crazy right now looking for you.
And I couldn't even image what would happen to him if he doesn't ever find you. Just come back to him, Emily. If you gave up this child and went back to him, I bet he would forgive you," David said.
Every word he said was like a stone dropping on Emily's heart. She suddenly couldn't breathe. "You don't understand..." she managed to choke out.
No one in this world understood her. No one knew what she was feeling in her heart and how much she hated herself for it. It had cost her everything to even decide to leave him.
"Emily, you're just making this hard for both of you," David said. He didn't know what Emily was thinking but he continued, "If you really love him, you wouldn't let him suffer like this."
This made Emily's heart ache.
Suffer? 'What Jacob was suffering from was because of me? Me?' Emily thought.
