Season 5

Episode 16

(We both enjoyed it)

"No! That's impossible!" Emily was dumbfounded and just couldn't believe what Jacob did. She looked at him for a few moments, trying to discern his real intentions. When she finally understood, "You're really determined to keep me from seeing Beryl, aren't you?"

Jacob nodded slowly, his eyes closed for the duration. "Yes."

"But why? I am her mother and you sent her away without so much as a notice, let alone a proper discussion with me!"

"Speak for yourself." Jacob, poker-faced, looked straight at her with a stern gaze and calmly continued, "I seem to recall that you decided not to consult me when you went to the clinic to get the baby aborted, the baby which I am the father of. Seems to me that we just did the same thing, right?"

Emily was speechless, "…."

"This is my way of punishing you."

A punishment? He knew exactly how much she cared about and loved Beryl, so he did this exactly to spite her?

"Just, rest easy tonight. I'll be back early." Jacob pecked Emily's forehead, clearly trying to clear the air of what just happened.

Emily studied his handsome face and found it an unreadable mask. As if there was a thick mist that clouded his mind. What the hell was he planning?

An answer quickly started to form on her mind.

Everytime Jacob leaves, Emily becomes a prisoner in the grand villa—a gilded cage. She's even prohibited from stepping on the garden just outside the place.

Jacob was making a treasure of her, a hidden treasure locked in a vault.

In someway, Emily realized her assumptions were correct.

From that point onwards, Jacob came home early and took some time to spend with Emily. He was unfazed and even looked satisfied even when Emily outright ignored him.

He just wanted to hide Emily in his gilded cage forever.

So she wouldn't dare leave.

Jacob, for the first time, felt peace and security wash over him. A great void in his heart was gradually being filled. Turned out, Emily was his greatest, deepest desire.

Predictably, Emily refused to be some sort of canary for Jacob and tried to contact the outside world, but Jacob cut off all means of communication. All things considered, people outside weren't even curious as to her disappearance.

Desperate, Emily went on a hunger strike. This prompted Jacob to come back home extra early that afternoon, personally cooked, and carried the food to Emily.

When he set down the tray on her bedside table, Emily just stared at him indifferently, and was wordless the whole time.

She has never, in her life, thought that Jacob would treat her this way. Imprisoning her and betraying her trust? Jacob? Impossible.

Jacob didn't mind her icy disposition, or was he just used to it, it didn't matter. He smiled warmly, "You don't have an appetite, today?"

He reached towards the bowl of porridge on the table, careful not to drop the fragile china and scooped a spoonful of the flavorful dish. He blew the heat off gently, and lifted it to her lips when he thought it was cool enough.

Emily turned her face away like a child. "When will you let me see Beryl?"

"It depends on my mood." Jacob casually spoke as if he was just talking about the weather today. Of course, it infuriated Emily anyway.

Bang! The crash of the bowl shattering on the marble floor reverberated in the spacious room. She had swiped the hand that was holding the bowl.

"Jacob, I am a living, breathing person! I am not some pet of yours!" Emily had a desperate look on her face.

Jacob rarely saw her so angry like this, he tried comforting her by caressing her long, soft hair like how one would soothe a cat, he then asked, "so your plan is to go on hunger strike? That is extremely childish."

Emily recoiled at his touch. "As long as it gets the message across."

"Well, it did." Jacob said in response. He was still smiling when he said this, it made Emily feel more hopeless, "however, I don't like the way you starved yourself, so I still won't give you what you want."

"How dare you…."

"I'll have the doctor come over and see about injecting you with some nutritious fluid, okay?"

"Jacob!" Emily couldn't take it anymore. She felt icy cold from the rage that was boiling inside her. She was breathless when she asked, "what on earth do you want me to do? I just want to see my daughter!"

Jacob slightly parted his lips, "Of course you can see Beryl, but what will you offer in exchange for seeing her?"

These past few weeks, he often went to see Beryl and she was doing so much better. He thought that it might be good for Emily's recovery to see Beryl since she was always worried about her.

"Exchange? For seeing Beryl? You want to make a fucking deal?" Emily's eyes widened at this, she studied his face unsure if it was really Jacob. It was Jacob alright.

He just changed a lot these days.

He became exceedingly overwhelming, overbearing and extremely possessive. His deep black eyes, which seemed to trap all light that shone on them, left her breathless.

For the first time in forever, she strongly felt that he wanted to completely control her, but Emily was never anyone's pet! She was a living, breathing person with a will of her own!

She would never bow down to anyone, even Jacob!

"Then what do you want from me?" Emily closed her eyes, defeated and waiting for his answer.

Jacob just chuckled, "I want you to please me like you mean it."

Emily's long lashes, trembled. She opened her eyes and looked at the handsome man in front of her, unable to believe what he just said. She wanted to be sure, "what did you say?"

"Come on, don't be like this." Jacob said with a cold smile, "We are a couple, and it's not like I'm the only one who'll enjoy this."

"Do you know the word 'insult'? You're insulting me by locking me up here to rot!"

"So, you're saying you won't?...." Jacob's eyes darkened and he slowly approached Emily to the point that Emily could feel his hot breath on her face. "I can certainly be more… active."

Emily's lips were suddenly occupied by the man before she could even say anything, all the words she was about to say were being sucked in into his void, "hmmmm…"

She resisted and flailed at his chest, trying to push him away.

But her hits were soft and felt gentle, it only served to fuel the desire burning deep within him.

Jacob didn't pull away until Emily was almost suffocating. She opened her mouth, gasping for breath, her pale face flushed like a peach. This only served as an invitation to Jacob.

Jacob said in his magnetic voice, "I know you'll never offer to give me what I want, so I'll just ask for it from you, and I want everything about you, You, your care and your love….

I want everything. I will love you until the day of my death."

Trapping her like this worked so much better than his previous tenderness and compromises, at least Emily was here.

Jacob forcefully kissed her again and trapped her on the bed with ease, like a predator holding down his prey.

Emily tried to resist, but she was totally held down by Jacob, who seemed to have torn off his mask of gentleness and has shown his true colors, his claws all over her.

He wasn't Jacob… Or is this the true Jacob all this time?

Emily drifted away in her choatic thought.
