Episode 45

(Crisis resolved)

"Since so many people have come in and out of Director Bai's office, who knows if it was someone who deliberately put it there to set her up!"    

Having spent some time and getting to know Emily better, the project team members knew that she was only cold on the outside, but on the inside she was actually kind and generous. That was why they decided to stand up in defense for her.    

"That's right. Someone must have sneaked in and put it there." Joyce, clenching her fist, with no trace of fear to have a confrontation with Vivian, if it came to that, added, "That's actually makes a lot more sense. I don't believe it was Director Bai's intention."    

Vivian threw Emily's design draft back on her table in a condescending manner and picked up the one she had lost and rolled it up.  

Even if it was not Emily's intention, it must have been someone's. He or she must have hated that Emily gained such high status in the company in such a short amount of time. "Director Bai has a set of keys right? Even if someone wanted to come inside, they would have needed the keys first, right?"    

Emily was stunned to see her design draft scattered across the desk, with some lying on the floor like garbage. Her mind was all over the place, scrambling to understand what everyone was arguing about.    

She gasped when she saw Vivian throw her design draft casually on the desk, and her heart was afflicted with an importunate throb of pain.    

"Joyce, go and check the surveillance footage,"     

Emily said coldly, as she walked over to the desk and collected her design draft up page by page.   

 "Right! The surveillance footage! We need to go and check right now! Let's find out who was behind this!"  

Emily's order was like a new discovery for Joyce, whose eyes suddenly lit up, thinking that with the surveillance footage, they would be able to find the real perpetrator.   

 "Are you plain dumb or what, Joyce? Why bother defending her when things have become so clear? Or are you trying hard to please and flatter her because she is the president's wife?    

Are you so gullible to believe that we didn't think of that yet? We tried to check the footage from that day but the surveillance cameras in Director Bai's office was broken and couldn't be checked."    

If there was no footage, there would be no evidence to prove that Emily Bai didn't steal the design draft.    

"Who said it couldn't be checked?"    

Just when they were on the verge of giving up, Jacob Gu interjected, his stern voice as cold as ice.  

He walked slowly towards them, radiating power like the devil who had just walked out of hell, locking them into his deadly glare.    

Someone immediately recognized him and said, "It's Jacob Gu, president Gu..." 

   People of his status rarely came to their company. So his presence here at this time must be for someone very important to him. And that someone was Emily.    

Some turned their sights towards Emily, eyes brimming with jealousy.   

 In truth, Jacob was just worried about Emily going back to the company alone.

 So when she got out of the car and headed for the company, he followed her inside.    

He came in late because he had gone to bring the surveillance footage.    

"Dave, show it to them."    

"Yes, Boss." Dave looked to Vivian, his face full of disappointment, and projected the surveillance footage onto the company's big screen for everyone to watch.  

The footage showed events from the day when Emily was called into Dave's office for a meeting to discuss the project of Sky Entertainment.    

The second Emily walked out of her office, a figure sneaked in there and slipped something into her drawer which she had forgotten to lock.   

 Watching the footage reminded Emily that she was just drawing her design draft when Dave called her to his office. 

Judging by the urgency of his tone, she didn't want to keep him waiting too long for her, so she hastily put her things away and walked out in a hurry, forgetting to lock the drawer.   

 And unsuspectingly this had given someone the great opportunity to set her up.    

"I told you it was a set-up!" Everything was clear now. The members of Emily's project team were all relieved, feeling happy for her to get her innocence back.   
 Dave paused the screen at the exact moment when the culprit was about to leave Emily's office. Pointing his finger to the screen, Dave looked towards Vivian, whose face was pale as ash.  

"Vivian, this person belongs to your team. Who would care to explain the situation?"   

 Half an hour ago, Sam called Dave to go downstairs and greet Jacob in person. 

Since Jacob's arrival was unannounced, Dave assumed he had come here for an inspection, but he soon realized it was because that Vivian was publicly making things difficult for Emily. He stood behind Jacob, sweating profusely and trembling nervously.    

Jacob watched the scene silently, his cold stare making Dave shudder with fear. Thinking back to that stare, Dave felt his temples throb with pain.    

With this solid evidence, Vivian could not deny that the person on the screen was one of her team members. However, with a glow in her eyes, she looked to the screen and demanded, "Chloe, what was this? Explain it to me."    

"I...I..." Chloe lowered her head and muttered, "Sorry, Director Vivian."    

"You think just saying sorry will be enough? How could you have done such a stupid thing? We all work in the same company. Besides, Director Emily is also your superior." Spitting fire with fury, Vivian threw the design draft in Chloe's face.  

She made it look like Chloe had acted on her own and she had no idea about it at all.    

Vivian's angry accusation frightened Chloe. She cried out, "I, I did this for our team. By the way, you told me..."    

Afraid that she might spill the beans, Vivian immediately interrupted her, "Say no more, Chloe. I treated you like a sister. How could you let me down like this?"   


Jacob banged his fist on the table, bringing their pathetic drama to a halt.  

  "Dave, you know what to do."    

After saying this, Jacob strode forward, grabbed Emily's hand and led her out.    

"He just took her away like that?"    

"Ah, oh my god! President Gu is so awesome!"   

 "Yeah, Director Bai is so lucky to have such a strong husband!"  

Emily let Jacob lead her out of the suffocating office, while asking, "You knew I was being framed?"  

  He appeared at the company with the surveillance footage, so he must have known what was going on.   

 "Um." Jacob didn't know what to say.    

"Wasn't the surveillance cameras broken? How did you get this?" Emily asked, lowering her head as she spoke.  

  "It wasn't broken. Someone had deleted the surveillance records, but it's useless to only delete the ones in the company, because there are also records in the headquarters,"  he said.    

When he followed her into the company, the first thing he did was to call Sam to get him the surveillance footage.    

"Thank you." If it weren't for her knight in shining armour, there would have been nothing she could have done to clear her name today.  

Jacob stopped suddenly, turned around to look at her, and said, "What will you do to thank me?"    

This suddenly caught her off guard, and she walked directly into his arms. Tilting her timid face upwards, she saw him staring at her, with a bright smile on his face.    

His smile lifted her out of the bad mood caused by this incident. In fact, it could lift her out of most bad situations in her life. An idea flashed across her mind, as she stood on her tiptoes and gave him a quick kiss on the cheek.    

"Well, thank you."  

  Thinking of something, she quickly gave him another kiss, and said, "This was for helping me with the contract earlier"    

Just as her lips left his cheek, Jacob pulled her face with both his hands, and said, "It's not enough."   

 How could he be satisfied by two quick kisses on the cheek?  

Without a word, he brought his lips to hers. Although everyone was looking at them, he didn't care, as he was completely immersed in their passionate kiss.   

 Emily struggled at first, but soon allowed herself to sink into the moment.

    Everyone knew that they were married, so why couldn't they express their affection for each other?
