Season 4

Episode 6

(Dead or alive)

Emily had a nightmare last night.

In her dreams, Jacob had caught her. He clutched her wrist tightly, like he wouldn't let her go, no matter what. The foreboding dream followed into the next scene as it took Emily into a cold, operating room. The bright lights on the ceiling was blinding her vision.

"Listen to my words. Don't keep this baby..." Jacob's gentle voice hovered around Emily, as eerie as a magic spell.

"No!" Emily screamed frantically, and finally woke up from her abysmal nightmare. Her cheeks were wet and her body was bathed in a cold sweat. The sheets were twisted around her limbs, probably because she was thrashing in her sleep. But at least she was awake now.

"Did you have a nightmare?" Sean asked her tenderly. Sean's comforting voice put Emily's heart to ease gradually.

"Nothing. I am fine," Emily replied, However, a soft handkerchief beat Emily and reached out to wipe her forehead gently before she could do it herself.

"Thank you, but it's really nothing. I am fine," she said. But she was touched by Sean's effort.

Sean passed the handkerchief to her and said, "We'll be at the airport soon. Are you feeling okay?"

"Yeah, I am good," Emily replied. Emily wiped her face clean and took a deep breath. Finally, she was ready to take the next step.

Whatever her dreams and nightmares had shown her, none of it mattered anymore. For in this lifetime, it was time for her relationship with Jacob... to come to an end.

Meanwhile, Jacob was still turning the world upside down searching for Emily.

He had invested a large amount of manpower and resources to dig out Sean's background, but time was running out and he didn't have anything viable at the moment.

As far as Jacob knew, Sean was a skilled doctor on the surface, but deep down he was more than that. He kept himself under the radar most of the times and the information surrounding him and his activities were shrouded in mystery.

However, Jacob's instinct told him that Sean was anything but a simple man. But now, it was too late for him to go digging into Sean's background. First and foremost, he had to keep his eye on the prize: Emily.

Sam was as efficient as ever. But this time when came to report, he hesitated. "Mr. Jacob, we have found the flight number of Emily..." he said, almost under the breath.

Sam's hesitation diminished Jacob's confidence. All of a sudden, he sensed a sharp pang in his stomach, but he had to know the truth. "Keep talking" Jacob urged Sam.

"The flight took off this morning, but according to the latest news, the plane had crashed..." Sam continued, nervously.

Jacob's brain stutters for a moment upon hearing the news, and every part of him goes on pause while his thoughts caught up. "What about Emily.." he asked, dreading each moment.

Sam took a deep breath before he announced the news. He felt uneasy at the thought of what he was about to say, but he forced himself to stay calm before he slowly reported, "... All the passengers were killed in the accident. There were no survivor."

"That is impossible!" Jacob cried out. In that instant Jacob's skin became white as chalk, his mouth hung with lips slightly parted and his eyes were as wide as they could stretch. He shook his head in disbelief, desperately scrambling to make sense of it all. "That's just not possible!" he yelled.

Words had left Sam. He stared into Jacob's deep eyes burning with anger, and his heart fell silent.

"She can't be dead!" Jacob kept shouting. Unable to comprehend what he had just heard, Jacob's eyes reddened with sadness. Raving like a madman, he commanded, "Find out what happened! Keep looking for her, dead or alive!"

Jacob's eyes sent shiver down Sam's spine. "Yes... Yes, Mr. Jacob," he muttered, and then ran out of the room. At Victor's office.

When Victor heard the news of the plane crash related to Emily and Sean, his hand trembled uncontrollably, and he accidentally ended up drawing a black line where he was supposed to put his signature on in the document.

"The plane crashed?" Victor asked as he looked up at his assistant.

The assistant nodded to confirm the news. "It's true. Nobody on the plane survived," he answered.

Victor looked down blankly at the black line he had drawn on the document. "I see. Get out," he commanded.

Startled, the assistant didn't know why Victor's mood had changed all of a sudden, but he complied and soon walked out of the office.

Victor's eyes gradually turned gloomy at the thought of Emily. 'What a pity!' he thought.

Considering her unique talent in designing jewelry, she should not have wasted her time at Jacob's side, nor should she have passed away so quickly.

'What a shame, ' Victor said to himself.

"Anne," Victor said, under the breath, while looking at the picture on his table.

He smiled back at the girl smiling happily in the picture. "You see, now he'll know what I feel like," he continued, as he ridiculed Jacob in his mind.

Victor shouldn't be the only one to experience the loss of a loved one.

Victor grinned from ear to ear, but there was no happiness behind his smile. 'Jacob, he deserves to suffer, ' he mused.

It had been over a week since the plane crash, but Jacob was not willing to leave M country just yet. He hired a rescue team and sent them to the crash site to launch a thorough search.

As long as he didn't see the body of Emily with his own eyes, Jacob wasn't going to believe the news. He was already suspecting whether she was ever on the plane or not!

Unfortunately, his delusions were shattered by the harshness of reality!

"Mr. Jacob, we found Miss Emily's belongings in the area where the plane crashed. However, since this area faces the sea, the police believe that Miss Emily's body was washed out to sea...

Even if they do find her, there's a good chance that her body won't be intact..."

But before the member of the rescue team could finish his report, Jacob's fist slammed into his face like a freight train, out of nowhere. "Shut your mouth! How do you know that she's dead? You don't know anything for sure! I don't believe you!" Jacob shouted at him.

"Mr. Jacob, calm down please. We will try our best to rescue Miss Emily!" the rescuer assured Jacob. The rescuer, however, did not get agitated by Jacob's ranting, maybe because he had dealt with the grieving families of the victims before and he understood how they felt.

He slowly handed over a file to Jacob.

"This is the only thing we found in Miss Emily's... luggage," said the rescuer, as he almost spoke the last word under the breath.

When Jacob opened the file to see what was inside, he was left motionless and speechless by what was inside. It was a photo.

Although, it was burned and barely held together, it took back Jacob to a very happy moment in his life. It was a photo of the two of them from last Christmas, when they were kissing in front of the huge, jewel-encrusted Christmas tree, as the people passing by watched them with awe and blessed them.

It was the only photo Emily was carrying with her.

And now, the photo in his hands was the only thing he had left of Emily.

Much to everyone's surprise, he didn't lash out again. Instead he calmly put the photo away and then turned to look at the rescuer. The unexpected calmness in his disposition was even more eerie.

"Get back to work," Jacob ordered with his hoarse voice.

Puzzled, the rescuer looked at Jacob with concern, but he eventually left him alone.

Jacob fixated his eyes on the photo, while he focused at Emily's face on it. He sat there, dominated by a profound sadness, fatigue engraved on his worn face. The grief surged with every expelled breath, always reaching higher peaks, never sufficiently soothed by his long intakes of breath.

In despair, he clenched his fist, while the blood in his body went cold. Determined, he said with all his strength, "Emily, I don't believe it what they're saying.

How dare you leave me?"

Although Jacob did not admit to Emily's death, but the news of the plane crash eventually reached everyone's ears.

Some were sad about it, but some were rather happy.

Jennifer was one of them, along with Tina, who was detained in the mental institution.

For a brief period of time, Jacob had cast all the company affairs aside. He no longer had the strength to keep up with everything. This gave the Tao clan the opportunity to recover and even fight back.

Without Jacob's influence, Mark managed to arrange Tina's release from the mental institution. However, the other members of the Tao clan could do nothing about it, since Tina was both mentally and physically ill. Surprisingly, she was not willing to leave the mental institution.

Having suffered ill treatment in the mental institution for a long time, Tina had grown accustomed to it, as it became a part of her daily life. Mark couldn't bear to see her rot away in such a horrid place. But what hurt him the most, was the fact that Tina had fallen in love with a male doctor who had given her electroshock therapy.

Without hesitation, Mark made the man disappear from Tina's life, so that he could no longer appear in front of Tina.
