Episode 48

(Dina li)

"I didn't." Jacob answered, playing the role of innocence aggrieved, refusing to admit to his "crime".    

He held his chin up arrogantly for added effect, but Emily could tell with absolute certainty that he was lying.    

"I just saw you throw that into the trash bin, honey." Emily chuckled, shaking her head in disbelief as she unfolded the paper back to its former shape.    

"Maybe my charming good-looks dazzled you and now you're starting to see things that aren't actually there,"  Jacob still argued.   

 Having noticed Emily's alerted stance, Jacob looked down to catch her off guard and sprang up to take the paper away from her when she wasn't looking.    
'It is just a silly signature. I don't see why my wife insists on protecting it so carefully?' Jacob was bothered by the fact that Emily was making such a big deal out of it.  

Luckily, Emily managed to evade Jacob's sudden attempt to pilfer the paper in time, but her quick movement came at a cost, as the paper got torn into two pieces.   

 "No!" Emily cried out subconsciously, looking at the torn piece of paper in her hand with a broken heart.  

  "What are you doing, Jacob? Look at what you've done!!"    

Eyes furrowed in deep crease, Emily took the other half from Jacob, discontented and upset.  

  'If Beryl finds out that her treasured memorabilia was torn into pieces, she will be so sad.'    

Emily could picture poor Beryl crying in front of her and her sunken eyes glazed over as she crumpled on Beryl's bed.    

Jacob stood there in silence. Penitent, regretful and contrite at the sight of Emily despairing over a piece of paper.  

But as soon as he remembered the signature, Jacob's anger razed all his regret and took over his emotions.   

 "It is just an autograph. How many of it do you want? I can sign one million pieces of paper for you." Jacob raised his eyebrows, his unpractised conceit filtering into his expression.    

'Who is Ray? Ray is a nobody compared to me. What's so great about his signature anyway? It's not like his signature is worth more than mine.' Jacob's judgment was clouded by his inflated ego.    

"Who wants your signature!" Frustrated and downright infuriated, Emily opened her eyes wide, "It was hard for Beryl to get past her shyness to ask for his autograph. Now it's gone. What are we going to tell her?"   

 In spite of Ray trying to avoid his fans, Beryl swallowed her pride just so she could get his signature. If she found out that it was all for nothing, she would be utterly devastated.  

Emily's shoulders slumped with pure dejection and she put the two pieces of papers in her pocket. "Never mind. I have to go to the Sky Entertainment today. I can always ask him for another one."    

"I will not allow you to meet with him!"    Jacob found himself irritated by the fact that his wife was going to meet Ray later today and he wanted to lock her up at home.   

 "Jacob?" Emily jerked him out of his thoughts and brought him back to reality.    

Jacob put his hands over her shoulders, urging her to calm down and said, "I'll ask him for the signature."   

 It was just Ray's signature. How hard could it be to get another one? All he needed was to ask Sam to get him one over the phone.   

 Emily couldn't tell what was going on in Jacob's mind, but she could see the remorse on his face.  

Emily lowered her voice and spoke as tenderly as possible. "Fine. But remember, Beryl will be upset if she finds out that the signature is missing."    

Emily had no intentions of interacting with Ray, only that she could drop by his office to get a new autograph for Beryl, since she had to visit Sky Entertainment Group Limited.    

After a dramatic event, Emily finally acquired another signature for her daughter and went back to the company.   

 The moment she walked out of the elevator, Joyce ran to her, "Thank god, Director Emily. I was about to call you."    

Joyce looked like she was in a hurry to tell Emily something urgent.    

"What's the matter?" Joyce walked beside her, as Emily walked to her office with a cup of coffee in her hand.  

  "Dina's studio just changed the schedule of the appointment. They re-scheduled for 10:30 this morning." Joyce told Emily about the last phone call.  

They were supposed to meet Dina's studio that afternoon. However, their appointment was broken again, which was so irritating.    

Emily furrowed her brows and had a look at her watch, "It is half past nine now. We only have an hour left, but that will do. 

Tell them, I will drop by forty minutes later."    

Emily was already well-prepared for the meeting Dina, so all she need was to have a second revision.   

 "Director Emily, will you be in a hurry? I am afraid there isn't much time for you to get ready. What about the next time?"   

 It took some time to set off from their company to go to Sky Entertainment Group Limited, which made Joyce worry about Emily's schedule.    

"No need for that. You just need to follow my plan."    

It had taken them a long time before they finally managed to book an appointment with Dina's studio. There was no way Emily was going to let this opportunity slip from her fingers.  

Before long, Emily gathered all her necessities including some important files before she walked out of her office.    
About forty minutes later, Emily showed up at the Sky Entertainment building on her high heels as scheduled.    

Dressed for business in a professional, tailored suit, she twisted her hair up in a clip, turning heads everywhere she gracefully walked by.    

"Who is this woman? She seems so powerful. How come I've never seen her in our company?" One passer-by was astounded by her presence.    

"I don't know either. I've never seen her before. Doesn't she remind you of someone? I feel like I've seen her somewhere before,"  another person added.    

"Could she be the new star signed by our company?"    

When Emily overheard someone call her a star, her cheeks dimpled with a blossoming smile and her eyes shone in a way that only deep happiness could bring.  

Everyone loved to hear compliments. Emily was no different.    

Unfortunately, Emily's delight was short-lived as seconds later she heard the displeased voice of a woman.   

 "Where did she find the courage to show up in our company? Is this a joke?"    

There was no doubt that the woman was talking about Emily. She slowly turned her head around, trying to see who the person was.    

All she saw was a tall woman, wearing the most popular cap of the year, stood with her head down behind her.   

 "What are you looking at? Haven't you ever seen a star before?" The woman's voice was flat and expressionless, edged with steel and contempt for enemy.    

Sensing Emily's curious gaze, the woman looked up and glared at her, uncovering her exotic pretty face.  

'It's Dina.' Emily recognized her at the first glance.    

'What a coincidence! At least I won't have to bother going up to her studio.' Just as Emily got up to introduce herself, with the intention of breaking the ice between them, she heard someone call her name.   
 "Ms. Emily, why are you here?"    

It was Brook, Ray's manager. Dina also happened to noticed him.   

 "Brook, do you know her?" Puzzled, Dina was curious of their relation.    

"Of course. Our studio just signed a contract with Ms. Emily's company." Brook nodded at Dina.    

"Ms. Emily, are you here for another cooperation?" Brook took a wild guess, now all he needed was to confirm his hunch.    

"You have a brilliant eye. I am indeed here for a cooperation." Emily smiled, with a determined look on her face.  

"With the utmost courtesy, Emily reached out her hand to Dina, "Hello, Ms. Dina. 

This is the first time we've officially met. I am Emily, the Director of Design in SL Jewelry. I am here for our 10 a.m appointment to talk about the cooperation."    

Dina stood there thinking, focusing on Emily's hand.    

She remembered that name, Emily. Her assistant had mentioned it to her several times.   

 'So what? She is just another woman who wants to make money out of me.' Dina sneered, with an arrogant, condescending look on her face.
