(Jacks death)

Although, Jacob knew that he was being a neurotic person who was playing fast and loose, he was never going to admit his jealousy. He just peered deep into Emily's eyes trying to see through her emotions.    

To his disappointment, however, her calm eyes gave him nothing.    

He was the only person who cared about her, in his own deranged way.   

 This thought made Jacob feel a little embarrassed, as though he was being the immature child who was incapable of listening to reason. He dropped his eyelids, feeling ashamed at his own shortcomings.    

Suddenly, Emily's cell phone rang while the two were in a standstill, and she answered it without looking at the screen. In the next second she heard the whirring wind ring through the line.  

While Jack's eternally sad, hoarse voice, vaguely graced her ears. "Emily, this is probably the last time I am going to call you. I was really happy to see you yesterday, because you remembered me in your heart. Emily, I hope that someday you can find it in your heart to forgive me..."   

 Emily tightened her lips and kept silent.    Jacob standing right next to her heard Jack's voice too. His face clouded over in disappointment.    

"Please say something, Emily. Please, I want to hear your voice..."   

 Emily took a deep breath and looked at Jacob, who was standing next to her with an unpleasant expression on his face, as if he was going to seize the phone in her hands and smashed it to pieces at any time. "No,"  she replied in a calm and cold tone.    

Jack paused for a moment, and asked again, "Will you never forgive me?"  

"Yes, I will never forgive you. Jack, it doesn't make any sense for us to bring up the past. You hurt my feelings and you killed my child. All of that happened and you can't fix that. So we should never go back to the past."    

While listening to Emily, Jacob recalled what he had done to Emily and could not help feeling ashamed and panic-stricken. Jacob wondered if he had hurt her the same way as Jack did and whether she had taken any of it to heart or not.    

"All of that happened and you can't fix that. So we should never go back to the past". Emily's words rang in his ears again and again.    

But why was he showing remorse? Wasn't it his original intention to torture her? It was absolutely ridiculous for him to have feelings of regret and self-reproach.    

On the other end of the line, Jack burst into laughter. Not out of joy but out of sadness and desperation. "What if I die? Would you forgive me then?" he whispered.  

Emily shook her head with disappointment and said, "Are you threatening me? Are you resorting to emotional blackmail now?"    

Jacob was amazed by his own ability to patiently sit through all the nonsense Jack was spewing at this foolish woman. The fact that he hadn't smashed her phone yet came as a surprise to him.    

There really was no limit to how low Jack could stoop to. If he really wanted to end his life, he could have just jumped off a building. Why did he have to call Emily and beg for her sympathy with such pointless words? No wonder he never tasted success in his life before.    

Although his legs were broken, he still managed weave lies and draw up plans for his future. What Jacob had given him was sufficient enough for him to make a comeback. Unfortunately, Jack had lost his motivation to recover from his failures.  

Such a weak cowardly man had no right to taste the sweetness of success in his life.    

Jacob ridiculed and despised Jack for his cowardice. His lily-livered nephew didn't even have the courage to avenge his dignity.    

Jacob felt deeply insulted to have such a coward as his opponent in the past.    Jack, on the other hand, was now driven to the extreme by his desperation. "I know that I don't have anything to threaten you with now. And as for death... It's just my atonement for all the bad things I brought upon you."    

Jack continued, "I've reached the end of my life. I don't have anything left to give to you. So I've decided to sacrifice my life to your hatred and make up for all the misfortunes you've had to endure because of me. Will is be enough to please you?"    

Emily grabbed the phone tightly and yelled, "Jack, are you sick? I don't care what you do or say, and I will never forgive you. I want you to get out of my life and never come back!"  

Jack laughed ruefully and his shaky voice echoed from the other end of the line. "Emily, do you know what I am thinking right now? I wonder if you will keep me in your mind forever if I died today?"    

"Lunatic! Have you lost your mind?" Emily yelled at the top of her lungs and her hands shook uncontrollably.    

"If he wants to kill himself, just let him do it! You don't need to entertain his lies anymore!" Jacob noticed the unease in Emily's face, and his eye-brows furrowed. He was about to seize her cell phone to cut the call when he saw her face turn pale.    

Emily opened her mouth to say something to sooth Jack, but it was too late.    

The next thing she heard was the sound of her phone falling to the ground, followed by a loud noise which hit her heart like a cold wild shocking her entire body.  

Although she could not imagine what pain Jack was going through, a strong sense of panic emerged in her heart, as if she was also being pushed down from the roof of a high-rise building.    

Jack seemed to have jump off the building.    

Jack was no longer a part of this world. 

   Life was like a flower, beautiful when it bloomed but at the same time fragile when it began to wither. Much like a man, going from being alive to dying within mere seconds.    

Jacob kicked the cell phone away and pulled Emily into his arms. At this moment, he deeply regretted allowing Emily to answer Jack's call.  

  He shouldn't have let her talk to that trash on the phone.  

Emily opened her eyes wide, tears spilling down her face, as if the walls that held her up had collapsed. She sobbed into Jacob's chest unceasingly, hands clutching at his jacket.    

"Did he die because of me? Should I have said something to stop him?" Her voice trembled.    

"No! You know he was mentally unstable. There isn't anything you could have done that would bring different results. He killed himself. No one should blame themselves for his death!" Jacob looked at Emily's guilt-ridden face and soothed her. He could sense that she was on the verge of a mental breakdown. Although there was a hint of jealousy in his heart, he also felt deeply concerned about Emily.    

His words, however, didn't relieve Emily as she turned pale and became breathless. Jacob's pupils dilated and his face changed. "Doctor! Doctor! Get over here right now!" He called out to all the hospital staff members present there.  

The hospital corridor descended into an uproar.    

Before long the medical staff rushed over and brought Emily into the emergency room where they immediately began to work on her.    

A few hours later, when Emily finally got out of harm's way the doctor came out with a relieved expression on his face.  

  "Miss Bai suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. It was all because her body was too weak to bear the load of her intense emotions. I am happy to say that she is no longer in any danger, but please see to it that she doesn't stress herself anymore,"  the doctor suggested.    

After hearing what the doctor had to say, Jacob slammed his fist into the wall so hard that blood dripped down from his knuckles and left bloodstains on the white wall.  

Jacob's previous worries had dissipated. Jealous had now replaced his worries filling his mind with poison.    

Jack! It was all because of Jack!    

Did she really care so much about that coward?   

 Did she suffer from a cardiac arrest because Jack died? Was she so distressed by his death that she had given up the will to live?  

  'So why did she show affection towards me before? She said that she only loved me, but she went to meet Jack behind my back. Her loving words were nothing but lies. I can't trust her anymore. She's an unfaithful woman, ' Jacob's mind brewed all sorts of negativity.    

Soon, Emily was transferred to the general ward. Jacob stood at her bedside, looking at the unconscious woman with a disgusted look on his face. He was overwhelmed with doubt, anger and jealousy which slowly ate at his insides.  

Since she had been disloyal to him and devoted to Jack, why was he still standing by her side? His thoughts did nothing but drag him into manic mood swings. Suffice it to say, the situation for him would worsen if he insisted on staying with her.   

 Perhaps the only way for him to find peace was to end her life...    

Jacob's eyes were clouded by rage, and his heart seemed to be filled with hatred. He was as close as a person could come to being Devil incarnate.   

 A voice kept echoing in his mind.   

 'Kill her, Jacob. Kill her and you will be free.    

As long as she is dead, she can never go to another man, and she won't care about another man too. As long as you kill her, she can't fool you with those damn sweet lies. As long as you kill her, she'll never be able to leave you, and she will be eternally obedient to you...'  

An evil had manifested in Jacob's heart, and he slowly lost control over himself. He stretched out his slender fingers and wrapped them around Emily's delicate neck, tightening his grip with every breath he took...
