Episode 51

(You better not cross her)

Never in her wildest dreams could Emily imagine what would happen the next day. As a result, when Dina personally called Emily the next day, she stood there dumbfounded in a startled expression.    

No one knew where or how Dina had managed to find Emily's personal number, but at this point Emily didn't care about that tiny detail.   

 A sweet voice came through the receiver, "Hello, may I speak to Designer Emily?"    

Emily replied, "Yes, Emily speaking. Is this, Miss Dina?"    

"Hello! First of all, I want to apologize for what I did to you yesterday. I have been so reckless and emotionally unbalanced these past few days. I don't know what I was thinking. Secondly, I went through your work last night and I think that your design is quite interesting. I would appreciate it if you could make some time to meet with me today to talk about your ideas in detail."  

Even as Dina's words passed through the receiver and registered in her brain, Emily couldn't believe it was real.    

The fact that Dina called her personally to talk about the cooperation was too good to be true. It was Dina's assistant responsible for keeping in touch with them for previous two times. However, Dina contacted Emily by herself today which made her feel excited. Emily clenched her fingers to her palms to restrain her excitement and calmly answered, "Sure."    

Having heard the response she was waiting to hear from Emily, Dina looked at her perfectly manicured fingernails and smiled complacently, as if she had succeeded in accomplishing what she had set out to do.   

 "Well, I will be off-site for a shooting today, so if you could come to the Emgrand Hotel in about thirty minutes that would be very convenient. I'll be waiting for you in Room 1001."    

Emily would prefer a more formal setting, like an office meeting room to talk about the cooperation, but seeing as how this was a golden opportunity for her to seal the deal with Dina, Emily agreed to see her there without further delay.  

Before long, Emily brought all her materials with her and arrived at the magnificent Emgrand Hotel.    

"Are you Miss Emily? Miss Dina asked me to give you the key-card to her room, since she hasn't come back yet. You can wait for her in the room. She asked me to tell you that she will be back soon."   

As soon as Emily entered the hotel lobby, she was about to make a phone call to Dina to inform that she had arrived, but then a man dressed as the concierge walked towards her and gave Dina's key-card to her.    

Unsuspectingly assuming that Dina must have been somewhere nearby for a shoot, Emily figured it wouldn't take her much time to come back. Emily took the elevator to Room 1001 and waited for Dina there. As it turned out, it was the presidential suite.   

 However, time passed dreadfully slowly and Emily had been waiting in the room for quite a long time now, but there was still no sign of Dina anywhere.  

When Emily finally sensed that something was off, someone opened the door of the presidential suite. "Click"    

"Excuse me, Miss Dina. You are late again!"   

 "Sweetheart, I'm coming!"   

 The unfamiliar voice of a man startled Emily and she stood up immediately, looking at the man who had just closed the door behind him with a poker face.  

  Suddenly, nothing made sense anymore and Emily froze on the spot.    

The person standing in front of her wasn't Dina, but a strange middle-aged man with a greasy appearance.    

Who was that guy? An inevitable sense of foreboding and personal betrayal seem to overshadow Emily's heart.    

Realizing that she had been lied to by Dina, Emily's face contorted in fury, then she quickly gathered her belongings with the intention to leave.  

"Mrs. Gu? What are you doing here?"    

In contrast to Emily's calm disposition, Mr. Wang was utterly shocked to see Emily there.    

Earlier, Dina had asked to meet him at her hotel room, giving him hopes that something good was going to happen tonight. However, meeting the wife of the president of the Gu Consortium in a hotel room was beyond his expectations!   

 After all, this was a woman he had no intentions of offending.    

Suddenly, Emily stopped on her tracks and asked him, "You know who I am?"   

 'I thought Dina wanted to talk to me about the cooperation personally. I didn't think she would change her plans in the last minute and send one of her subordinates.' Emily was starting to lose her patience.    

"Yes, of course. I have attended the wedding of you and President Gu with our CEO." Mr. Wang wiped away the sweat on his forehead subconsciously, respectfully nodding his head at Emily. 

 If Jacob Gu had found out that he was with his wife in a hotel room alone... The thought filled Mr. Wang with an intolerable pang in the gut.    

Damn it! He had been framed by that scheming bitch, Dina!    

Cursing at Dina a thousand of times in his heart, Mr. Wang quickly explained, "Mrs. Gu, I think you must enter this room by mistake, would you like me to show you the way out?"   

That was when Emily realized that this man wasn't sent by Dina to talk about the cooperation. All of a sudden, Emily guessed Dina's intentions and her expression turned gloomy.  

"Yeah, I must have made a mistake."
Emily feigned a smile and walked towards the door carrying her bag to her side.    

Dina had better give her a reasonable explanation, otherwise, she would have to make up for embarrassing her like this. With or without the cooperation contract.  

"Yes, that makes sense. You must have made a mistake." Mr. Wang rushed to the door and courteously opened the door for Emily while he kept bowing at her with respect.   

 "Mrs. Gu, please take care. I heard that you are working for SL Jewelry, if there is an opportunity next time, maybe we can work together on a collaboration."   

 "We can talk about it the next time."    

When Emily stepped out of the room, suddenly recalling something, she stopped and asked, "Do you know Dina?"    
"Yes, I know her." In fact, he knew her quite well. Some would say, better than others.    

Closing her eyes, Emily breathed out the turbid air and asked, "Did she ask you to come here?"   

 "Yes, that double-crossing woman told me that she was going to meet me here."  

Mr. Wang gritted his teeth in anger, wishing to tear Dina into pieces when he realized how Dina had sweet-talked and manipulated him over the phone just so she could play a dirty trick on him.    

Mr. Wang's answer made Emily ponder what Dina's intentions were. First, she asked Emily to come to her hotel room, then she asked a man to go to the same room so it would look like the both of them spent time together in one room alone.    

Dina weaved an elaborate trap and Emily fell right into it. When Emily figured out what had happened she muttered under her breath, "Well, I see what has happened here."   

Mr. Wang seemed to see Jacob's figure on Emily's, as he couldn't help shivering and said while nodding and bowing, "Mrs. Gu, please take care."    


As soon as Emily turned at the door, she saw Dina looking at her and the middle-aged man with her beautiful eyes, widened with surprise.  

"Dina! How you dare to play a trick on me!"   

 Before Emily could even finish, the man beside her, who was far more angrier than her, stepped past her and delivered a strong, tight slap across Dina's face.   


"Dina, do you know who she is? You'd better not cross her!" Mr. Wang said in a cold voice, pointing his finger at Emily!  

  Mr. Wang was clearly so afraid of Jacob's wrath that he couldn't control his emotions anymore, snarling coldly, as his chest bobbed up and down continuously.   

 "Don't think that your popularity will save you from everything! You would have never accomplished anything without our company's support!"    

Dina, utterly confused, broke down in tears, clutching at her face.   

 "What do you mean, Mr. Wang?"  

"Don't you understand what I'm saying?" Emily sneered and snickered at Dina's audacity to entrap her superior. What a bold move!    

Since, there was already a man dealing with Dina, Emily didn't see the need to get involved anymore. Emily decided it would do her no good to spend another minute there, so she left without saying anything.    

"You'd better stay here and think about what you have done! I am going to send her out."    

Mr. Wang warned Dina and then ran after Emily at once.    

Dina covered her sore cheek with her hand, watching them walk away, and gradually her eyes filled with hatred.    

A hideous expression came over Dina's face, thinking of how Emily always luckily escaped her traps. At first it was Ray who protected her and today it was Mr. Wang who stood up for her.   

 "Damn you, Emily! You won't be so lucky every time!"
