Episode 26

(I just love you more)

Jacob said in a voice filled with concern, "But I'm worried about you..."    

Emily asked, "And what about Beryl? If something were to happen to her, I would not have the courage to continue living..."   

 "I have already asked someone to go find her. They will certainly protect her from any harm..." Before Jacob could finish, he saw Emily's tears begin falling like beads from a broken string.    

Verging on panic at the sight of her distress, he quickly comforted her, "Don't cry. Please don't cry. What do you want me to do? I'll do whatever you want, okay?"  

  "Don't you love Beryl?" Emily asked, while she wiped away her tears. Then she looked at Jacob with red rabbit eyes, seeking his assurance.  

Jacob replied in a hurry, "How could that even be possible? She is your daughter, and also my daughter. How could I not love her? I just..."    

'I just love you more, ' he finished the sentence with an unspoken thought.   

 He couldn't say it out loud, because of concern for Emily's emotional state. She had clearly blamed him for not going after Beryl, when she had run away from home, and if he said that now, Emily might be greatly vexed or suffer a breakdown.   

 Emily licked her lips, then she inquired with anxiety filled eyes, "Then you should go out to find Beryl and bring her back to me. You should make sure she is safe and sound. Hurry up..."    

"Okay. I will do it." Jacob had no other options but to tell his subordinate to strengthen security measures around the recovery room where Emily was recuperating, and then he went out to bring his daughter back himself.  

To be honest, his actions didn't mean that he didn't care about his daughter.   

 It was just that Beryl was so emotional at that time, and he thought it would be better for her to cool off by herself for a while. However, he had almost forgotten about another person in the equation-Ancho.   

 There must be some strange agenda with that woman.    

Jacob made a call to the subordinate who was responsible for finding Beryl. Once Jacob knew where they were, he quickly drove there and picked them up, before returning to the hospital.   

 "I hope you don't need me to remind you what you should and what you shouldn't say when you get there." Jacob said to Ancho in the car as he drove, his eyes were suspicious and remained locked on to her face in the rear view mirror. He didn't want this scheming woman to affect Emily's mood, or health.  

After Ancho heard this, she lowered her head and obediently replied, "Yes, sir."  

  From Beryl's point of view, it seemed that Ancho was frightened of Jacob which was why she didn't speak much. 

Angered, Beryl expressed her discontent with a heavy snort.    

Jacob had no reply to that, but he could feel a headache forming because of his demanding daughter. He couldn't do anything else but comfort her, "Beryl, sweetheart, daddy never doubted you. 

You'd better not think too much along those lines."    

"Although you didn't say that you doubted me, your attitude showed everything." Beryl still had some complaints about Jacob, and she felt so aggrieved that her eyes turned red and she was about to cry.   

 "Okay, okay! It's Dad's fault." Jacob had no other way out but to give in and apologize. He gently touched Beryl's head and placing a soft kiss on her forehead, and he softly said, "You'd better quickly wipe away your tears and snot. Otherwise, you mommy will feel sad to see that. I have already been blamed for upsetting you by your mom just now."  

"I don't have any snot!" Beryl retorted, but she still took out a handkerchief to clean her face. Then she sneaked a peek of Jacob and ask with uncertainty, "Are you telling the truth?"    

What she referred to was that Emily had blamed Jacob for her running off.  

Jacob laughed out loud and replied, "Why should I lie to you? You will find out the truth when you see her. Beryl, you should remember that mom and dad both love you very much. You are our darling child. If we don't love you, who should we love?"   

 Beryl planned to ask a question regarding the new baby.   

 If they had a second child, would they still love her the same as before?  

However, in the end she didn't ask this question.    

It turned out that she was also afraid of being disappointed, and wanted to escape that possibility.   

 Then they arrived at the hospital, but Ancho didn't qualify as family, so she had to wait outside the ward.    

When Emily saw Beryl was safe and sound, she felt greatly relieved. However, she noticed that Beryl's eyes were reddened, so she blamed Jacob again.

    After that, Beryl's mood lightened considerably as she felt somewhat assured of her mother's love.   

 Emily stayed in hospital for a few days, but since there were no complications, Jacob took her back to the Tyrone Mansion to further recuperate.    

By this time, Jacob had eventually began to settle accounts with Ancho.  

He chose a time when Emily was resting, then he called Beryl and Ancho aside, where a group of servants were waiting with bowed heads.    

When Beryl saw this, she was full of confusion and asked, "Dad, what are you going to do?"    

"Beryl, you just need to stand aside and watch,"  Jacob replied, then he turned to Ancho with cold eyes. As soon as he raised his chin, his subordinate pulled her out from the row of servants.    

Ancho was so nervous that her hands became soaked with cold sweat, because she didn't know whether Jacob had discovered the truth. 

Subconsciously she looked to Beryl for help before pleading, "Sir, what do you mean? Could you tell me what mistake I have made?"    

Beryl hurried forward and cried, "Don't you touch Anhco! You guys let her go!"  

Jacob pulled Beryl back and said, "Take it easy. Let the servants tell you just what on earth this woman has done."    

As soon as he finished, two of the servants stepped forward with panic stricken faces.    

The first servant started to tell the story after receiving permission from Jacob, "We are going to say something that relates to why Mrs. Emily fell over in the kitchen. It was because someone spilled some oil on the kitchen floor. Someone wanted to do harm to Mrs. Emily on purpose..."    

"You are talking nonsense!" Beryl and Ancho almost spoke in unison. The only difference was that Beryl felt angry, while Ancho tried to cover up her anxiety and guilt.   

 The servant looked at Ancho, but continued guiltily, "I'm not talking nonsense. It is you who told Miss Beryl that being cold is good for her. That if she cannot be cruel enough, then she will suffer a lot in the future. Thus, you wanted to give her a hand..."  

"No, it wan't me! How could I say something like that...? Hmm!" Ancho hadn't finished speaking yet, when Jacob asked someone to cover her mouth. 

Thus, it was much quieter all of a sudden.  

  Although Beryl still wanted to say something, Jacob whispered at her ear, "Beryl, don't you want to know the truth? Or do you think these servants are just slandering Ancho? Even then, would it matter to listen and let the servant finish?"  

  Beryl glared at the servant fiercely, but she eventually kept silent and closed her mouth.    

She would see what lies the servant could invent!    

The servant continued, "For this reason, she asked me to call someone to spill some oil on the floor. And not only in the kitchen, but also elsewhere that Mrs. Emily usually walked."  

Right after that, the second servant began to speak with a trembling voice, "Sir, I am new here, and I really don't know anything about it! They asked me to brush the floor with oil. They said it was for maintenance. I didn't know whether it's true or not, because I'm from the countryside. If only I had known that it would harm someone, I would never have done it! No matter how much money they gave me!"    

The first servant then continued, "After the accident happened, Ancho asked us to say that it was Miss Beryl that did it. 

She said because Miss Beryl was your daughter, sir, and you would not blame her so harshly. But if you knew it was us who had done this, then we were doomed to be finished."    

When the servants had finished speaking, the truth finally lay bared.    

Actually, Jacob had already known the truth, but he cared more about Emily's physical condition, so he hadn't mentioned it before.  

"Beryl, did you hear it clearly?" Jacob asked.    

Beryl stood rooted to the spot with a numb expression. It took quite a long time for her to react, but then she shouted loudly, "I don't believe it! You must all have conspired to cheat me! Ancho could never be that evil!"
