Episode 71

(You are a twerp)

Emily had never heard such a preposterous speech in her entire life.

She conclusively refuted, "If I ever help, it will be out of my own will and not because I owe you and your husband anything. Besides, kindness should not be wasted on people like you."

"Please, let go of my husband! I cannot live without him!" begged Delores.

All of a sudden, Emily's voice went cold. "I don't have the right to let go of him. He committed a crime and he needs to bear the legal responsibilities. As for you, I don't really care whether you live or die."

Emily did not want to argue with Delores anymore, so she turned to a straight face before she said to Jacob, " Let's go."

Jacob did not care Delores at all and followed Emily to leave.

Disappointment appeared in Delores's eyes in the form of tears. As much as she tried to hold it in, the pain came out like an uproar from her throat as she could not imagine how she would go on without Kerr! Delores always held a grudge against rich people and now she had grown to hate them even more. 'Why couldn't she just forget about everything that had happened?

She did not suffer any physical harm, did she?

Why are you driving us into a tight corner?' Delores could not help yelling in her mind.

Although she was aware of the fact that Kerr had broken the law, she felt like his actions were justified and easily forgivable by Emily, if she had not been so stubborn. Somehow she managed to delude herself into thinking that Emily was to blame.

In a fit of rage, Delores pulled out a fruit knife under her pillow and rushed towards Emily!

"Why are you doing this to us? I'll kill you!" yelled Delores.

But even before she could get near Emily, Jacob kicked Delores down to the ground, disarming her of the knife in the process.

"I hate you..." Delores screamed. Lying on the ground, writhing in pain, Delores spit out a mouthful of blood and glared at Emily hatefully, the resentment in her eyes still clearly visible.

The commotion drew the attention of the medical staff who came in and found Delores on the floor, but did not dare to help her, afraid of angering Jacob.

'Delores tried to kill Jacob's girlfriend! Anyone trying to help Delores now would surely earn Jacob's displeasure. I'm not stupid enough to go up against Jacob, ' all the medical staff standing there murmured in their minds.

"Hate us?" Emily walked slowly towards Delores and bent down to stare at her gaunt face and continued, "You hate us? On what grounds? Your husband kidnapped me. He is lucky he's still alive. He deserves this ending!"

"He did not want to but he had no choice. He did it all to save me..." screamed Delores.

"Hmph." Having reached the end of her patience, Emily sneered and her eyes had turned cold as she decided to smash Delores's appalling excuses.

"Exactly! He did all of this for you. If it weren't for you, he would have never kidnapped me and broken the law, right?

You hate me? But what did I do? While I did not wrong neither you nor your husband, your husband kidnapped me and put me through hell! And now you're telling me that you hate me? How dare you? Hah! You must be living in your own deluded world!" Emily felt disgusted.

The truth hit Delores like a train. Stunned, the tears came crashing down from her eyes and she said, "You're right. It's all my fault. If it weren't for me, he would have never committed such heinous crimes. I should hate, myself..."

Delores picked up the fruit knife and murmured, "If I die, all of his problems will disappear and he won't have to carry the burden on his shoulders anymore..."

Before anybody could realize it, Delores suddenly brought the knife to her throat as soon as she finished talking.

"What are you doing! Don't do it!" yelled Emily. Without a conscious thought, Emily reached out and grabbed the blade with her bare hands!

"Emily!" Jacob screamed at Emily as he rushed to disarm Delores, "Let go of the knife!"

"Ah..." Emily was a little late in letting go and the sharp blade left a small cut on her soft palm where she had caught it. Tiny droplets of blood dripped from her hand and fell on the floor, as she stood there shaking in shock.

Jacob's mind went blank at the sight of Emily's blood. He would have killed Delores on the spot if he weren't concerned about Emily. "What are you looking at? Come and dress her wounds now!" Jacob yelled at the medical staff.

Without any hesitation, they all scrambled and rushed to treat Emily's wounds.

"Wait," Emily cast a short glance at Delores who was lying on the ground, and continued, "Please, help her too."

The medical staff were stunned by Emily's request and they all turned to look at Jacob for his permission. Having no other choice, Jacob took a deep breath and said, "Fine. Do as she told you."

Delores was immediately taken back to her ward, but she said nothing else to Emily before they took her away. Not even a word of apology or gratitude to Emily. She was lost in her own world, thinking about what was right and what was wrong.

When the doctor had finished dressing up Emily's wounds, he said to her, " Remember to apply ointment and keep your wound away from water as much as possible."

"Thank you very much, doctor," she said. Emily's tensed eyebrows finally eased up. But when she turned around, her eyes caught sight of Jacob's displeasure, floating in his eyes. Even in anger, Jacob's face still looked handsome.

Emily felt guilty knowing that Jacob would blame her for being so reckless and impulsive. However, even to her surprise, Jacob zipped his mouth shut and did not voice his disapproval.

There was no denying the fact that Jacob was seething in anger.

But for what reason?

In truth, Emily knew why he was angry. Jacob was infuriated by the fact that Emily hurt herself while trying to stop Delores from killing herself.

Moments later, Emily tried to comfort Jacob but she couldn't find the words. As a result, they both left the hospital in silence, giving each other the silent treatment, as if the first one to speak would be the loser of the game.

When they got to the car, Emily reached for the door but was unexpectedly pulled into Jacob's warm embrace. "What is it, huh?" she asked.

Before she could say anything else, Jacob gave her a deep kiss with a taste of anger on the side.

Dizzied by Jacob's kiss, Emily tried to pull herself away from Jacob when she heard footsteps.

But Jacob took off his coat without hesitation and put it over their heads to continue kissing her. He really enjoyed the taste of her lips.

After a long while, they pulled apart to take shaky, shallow breaths. Emily's lips were swollen like red plums, juicy and delicious, just the way Jacob liked them.

Emily watched breathlessly as his eyes studied hers with silent intensity. "Damn it, I was hoping that you'd apologize and try to comfort me," he said in a low voice.

Comfort him? Emily's heart skipped a beat, and she wasn't sure how to react to what he said, so she changed the topic, "What on earth do you think you're doing? Let go of me. We are in public place..."

"I want to kiss you. I don't care about anything else. I just want to kiss you, right now, right here," he said. Jacob gazed deep into Emily's eyes and then finally said, "Fine. Fine. You are such a twerp!"

Displeased by his comment, Emily scoffed, "You are a twerp! Not me!"

"How many times do I have to tell you to stop putting yourself in danger? Don't ever do something silly like that again.

This matter is not up for discussion. I am warning you, do you understand?" said Jacob.

Emily gasped, "I have the right to do as I please. Your orders have no power over me."

"If you dare to hurt yourself again, I promise you that your punishment will be delivered in bed. Keep that in mind," he said, with a cheeky smile on his face.

" You..." Emily was at a loss for words. Frustrated, she felt so embarrassed that she pulled away from his arms and said, "Behave yourself. We should not act like this in public. Do you understand?"
