Episode 48

(Because you are idiot)

A short while after Emily had left the hospital, Sam rushed into Jacob's ward with a man.

"Sir, here is the person you wanted to meet."

"Come in." Jacob kept his usual calm and composed disposition. He set aside all the sweet feeling Emily had brought him.

All of a sudden, the air around grew cold again.

The man Sam brought in looked a little like Jacob. He walked into the ward slowly, but he didn't speak a word.

Jacob rested his back on the large sofa and raised his eyelids slightly. "What should I call you? Len or Jason?" asked Jacob.

"Jason." Jason looked straight at Jacob, and his face contorted with disgust.

"Jacob, why do you fight for our enemy?" he sneered.

"Jacob, why do you fight for our enemy?" he sneered.

"Bang!" Jacob slammed his fist on the table, and his cold fury burnt with dangerous intensity.

"Have you not been educated? How dare you utter my name?" Jacob exclaimed.

Although Jacob was just sitting there, his sharp, black eyes pierced a hole right through Jason's heart. He harbored a sense of arrogance in his eyes, as he looked down upon Jason, like he was nothing more than the dirt under his feet.

Jason gritted his teeth, refusing to admit that he was taken aback by Jacob's remark. "You are not my brother. You sold your loyalty to our enemy, for honor, glory and riches. I am ashamed of you," he sneered.

"Say that again."

"I said you are not my brother... Ahh!"

Before Jason could finish his words, Jacob stood up and kicked him in the stomach, sending him falling to his knees. He felt the weight of anger pressing him into the dirt in which he knelt.

"Jacob!" Jason cried out in pain, struggling to find his footing.

Jacob pressed on his shoulder with his foot and pinned him to the ground. "Do you know why you were caught by Mr. Gu?" he asked.

"Because you are an idiot," he added.

Jason froze. Although he had been separated from Jacob for many years and had already moved on with his own life, he still couldn't forget the death of his parents.

Jason tried everything he could to find out the truth. However, even though, he did not have substantial evidence, he had already guessed who killed his parents!

Jason deliberately endured years of humiliation just so he could find the right opportunity to approach the old man and kill him. However, Jason did not expect to get caught by Mr. Gu...

"Think about what you did carefully," said Jacob. Jacob set Jason free. He then turned around and walked out of the ward, without even looking back at him.

Sam followed Jacob, as he took one last glimpse at Jason, and caught him with his fist on the table, infuriated, with a look of disapproval on his face. Helpless, Sam sighed deeply, feeling sorry for Jacob.

'If it weren't for Mr. Jacob, would he even be standing here now? His attitude is really... childish and stupid, ' Sam thought.

Jacob, on the other hand, seemed to care too little as he simply said, "Arrange for someone to keep an eye on him. Don't let him do anything stupid."

"Yes, sir," Sam replied, respectfully. He paused for a moment and said, "Sir, the car was taken to the workshop to be checked. Someone must have sabotaged the brakes, but we still do not know who is responsible for it."

"There is no need to check it anymore," Jacob dismissed. His face as cold as ice, Jacob buttoned the top button on his shirt and continued, "There are only a handful of people who would be brave enough to do this."

Sam had also landed on the same conclusion. "Do you need more bodyguards?" he asked.

"No, just send more bodyguards to protect Emily," Jacob answered. Jacob was uncertain whether Mr. Gu had already learned who Cloris Lu really was. Just to be on the safe side, he needed to be sure.

"Is everything in the A country ready?" Jacob asked while walking outside. "Everything is ready and good to go," answered Sam.

Jacob's morbid eyes twinkled with a sharp gleam like that of a tiger staking his prey. His gaze was of bloodthirsty murderer. Mr. Gu wanted to make conflicts between Jason and Jacob so he could take advantage of Jacob, but Jacob would never let his plan be successful.

'Having planned this for so many years, let's see who will have the final laugh, ' Jacob mused.

...... .

When Emily was on her way back home, she ran into a familiar figure standing just outside her house. The man leaned against a tree, looking a bit lonely.

"Jack..." Emily said, with hesitation.

"What are you doing here?" she added. Jack gazed at Emily's face, strode over and opened his arms wide. By the looks of it, he wanted to hold her in his arms. Emily subconsciously backed away from him to avoid touching him.

Jack laughed at himself, feeling awkward as he put his hands down. He stood in front of Emily and asked, "You were with Jacob last night, right?"

"That's none of your business," she answered. Emily was shocked, when she noticed the dew on his shoulder. 'Did he wait here all night?'

Jack licked his thin lips slightly and said, "After all the things we've been through, you still chose to be with him. I thought we would have a chance."

"We are not getting back together," she said. Emily looked at his eyes calmly and added, "I have put down the past, and I hope that you will do the same. Those memories will only bring you unhappiness."

"We will not get back together?" Jack whispered her words and continued, "Because I have cheated on you, I have no right to be with you anymore. Is that it?"

Emily slowly uttered a one word answer, "Yes."

That one answer drowned Jack's heart in immense pain. All the efforts he had made was for nothing. Her heart would never be open to him again.

"Remember what you said," said Jack. At this moment, his bleeding heart was no longer capable of holding back the ruthless emotions he had hidden so perfectly. "You cheated on Jacob and then you had my child. You have no right to be with him, too," he added.

Emily was a little surprised by Jack's sudden change in attitude. However, the pain that she had also hidden in the deepest corners of her heart gradually broke out as well. After a few seconds, she responded word by word, "I know what I need to do. Don't forget that this is all your fault.

"I'm sorry," Jack pleaded, but there was no sign of remorse in his words.

Emily took a deep breath to control her emotions. "If you really feel sorry, please stay away from my life," she said to his face.

Emily's words had taken away all hope from Jack's heart. Disheartened, he gave her a wry smile and said, "I know that you hate me, but I only have one thing to ask from you."

"What do you want?"

"I hope you can ensure our daughter's safety, and allow me to visit her several times a month. After all, I am her biological father. You can't deprive the both of us of our rights.

I will do my best to meet your requirements and I would like to pay for child support," he said.

"Beryl and I don't need your money," she refused. Emily lowered her head and thought, 'As Beryl's father, if he just wants visitation rights instead of custodial rights, perhaps I should agree with his terms.

Besides, Beryl is also eager to see her birth father...'

"You can see the child, but you can't take her away without my permission," said Emily.

"Okay," he agreed. Jack's face grew slightly brighter. "I will not meddle in your life in the future, but I hope that Beryl will not call another man 'dad'. She has only one father, and that's me."

As long as Beryl was Jack's daughter, Emily could never cut him off from her life.

One step back today for two steps forward tomorrow— sometimes one had to lose some, to win some.
