Episode 54

(They couple both played tricks on others)

"Don't you want to be tired?" Jacob sweetly parted his lips to accept the strawberry that Emily fed him. The juices ruptured across his perfect teeth, and his lips curved upward into a dreamy smile.    
He smiled with a hint of malice, and Emily knew what wicked ideas he was contemplating, so she pouted and refused, "No, I don't."    

The small rabbit hadn't fallen into his trap, and a faint sense of disappointment flashed through Jacob's eyes, as he asked again, "Really? You don't want to know?"    

Emily was biting down on a spoonful of the strawberry cupcake, and she refused firmly while shaking her head, "No!"   

 "You bad little girl..."   

 Jacob's handsome face flaunted a helplessly spoiled smile, like an iceberg melting in bright sunlight.  

He stretched a hand out and tucked the lock of hair cascading from Emily's forehead behind her delicate ear. He murmured slyly then, "If you don't want to be so tired, you can do exercise with me every day. Then you will gradually get more experienced at it."    

Emily couldn't believe that Jacob had just said these words aloud! He had even emphasized the word "exercise" by stressing each syllable, which made a faint and suspicious flush color Emily's cheeks.   

 "Jacob, we are in an office!" Emily replied with a low, ambiguous voice. Her teeth were still locked on the spoon, and it sounded like the words were squeezed from between her frosting melted lips.  

  The door of her office was made of glass, so if she and Jacob did anything inappropriate in this very public space, then the people outside would definitely know it.    

Emily was a thin-skinned person, which Jacob knew full well, but he let the malicious smile linger on his face while lounging against the side of her desk.  

"Who said that she wanted to buy my time last night? I came here today so as to..."    

Before Jacob had finished, someone was knocking at the door of the office, with three loud knocks.    

"Director Emily, are you in the office?"   

 Jacob frowned heavily at being interrupted, and his expression showed his displeasure.    

Emily blinked at him several times, then she sighed, "It is Vivian."    

If there was nothing important needing Emily's attention, then Vivian would never come to her office. Now she knocked at the door of her office, which could only mean that she had already heard about Jacob coming here to find Emily, right?    

"What?" Hearing the name of the strange woman, Jacob instantly lost interest in Vivian, for he cared only about Emily. He asked, "You don't want to meet her?"    

"I didn't mean that." Emily thought for a minute with her brows knitting together, then she replied, "She is an annoying person to me."  

There was no reason that she should like someone who clearly, and without reason, didn't like her.    

However, since Vivian picked such a perfect moment to arrive, Emily looked forward to seeing her.   

 Emily pulled Jacob away from the desk, then she winked at him while replying to the person outside, "Director Vivian, I'm here. Please come in."   

 When Vivian heard Emily's reply after a lengthy pause, she released her tightly clenched fists, pulled on a blossoming smile and carefully set her poker face before entering.    

"Director Emily, I... Gee, President Gu is also here?"    

Seeing the man with threatening momentum standing beside Emily, a faintly jealous expression flashed through Vivian's eyes.    

'There are plenty of outstanding women like me. Why does Jacob love such an incompetent woman like Emily?' she thought bitterly.  

As soon as the woman entered, Jacob's business sense quickly noticed that she held some hostility towards Emily.    

Jacob eyes darkened, and the look on his face was so ambiguous that it was hard to interpret, "You are Vivian?"   

 When Vivian heard him speak her name, she mistakenly thought that he might intend to pay attention to her, so she replied in surprise, "You remember me, President Gu? Last time..."    

"Emily has mentioned you to me." He interrupted her with a cold voice, as he didn't want to hear another word from her.    

Jacob's indifference shocked Vivian, and she laughed hollowly to conceal her embarrassment, "Huh, huh. Director Emily has mentioned me to you?"    

Had Emily said something bad about her to Jacob? Vivian secretly fretted, 'That damn Emily talks so much.'    

Noticing the faint dark circles on Emily's lower eyelids, Vivian suddenly had a flash of wit.  

"President Gu, did you know that Emily didn't sleep well last night? I found out that she fell asleep during the company meeting this morning! I'm so worried that she was exhausted with too much work last night. So I came here to ask her whether she needs a cup of coffee to refresh herself."    

Vivian's sudden use of her first name instead of her title, raised goosebumps on Emily's arms. She wasn't used to Vivian being so familiar. It was like holding a snake up close and it made her skin crawl.    

"Really?" Being aware of Emily's loathing for the woman, Jacob tightened his lips so as to restrain the laugh that threatened to spill forth.    

"Emily, how could you sleep during a meeting? Is the bed in our home not comfortable enough for you? If it isn't, I will ask the housekeeper to change it right now,"     

Jacob laid one hand against Emily's face as he asked with mock concern, while picking up his cellphone and pretending not to see the shocked and envious expression on Vivian's face.  

Emily rolled her eyes at him immediately, then she intimately covered his hand with her own and replied, "That is not necessary. The bed in our home is quite comfortable."    

She had just wanted to play a trick on Vivian, but why was Jacob taking it so seriously?    

"Fine. Are you still sleepy now? If you are sleepy, I can take you back home to rest now."    

Emily glanced at Vivian who blushed awkwardly, then she shook her head in refusal, "After enjoying your cake, my love, I am not sleepy at all."    

Seeing the open cake box on the desk, Vivian's expression turned even worse, and her eyes filled with envy and dripped malice.    

Her original intention had been to let Jacob know that Emily was lazy at work, and had fallen asleep during a meeting. However, it never occurred to her that Jacob might care about Emily this much.  

 Damn it! How could Emily live such a good life!    

"Director Vivian, what's the matter?" Emily asked cautiously as she saw the other woman's jealousy.    

Lost in her own thoughts, Vivian's expression suddenly turned ferocious, and she ground her teeth so tightly as if she wanted to rip Emily into pieces. 

Emily, fearing that Vivian would not be able to restrain herself, gripped Jacob's arm tightly.    

Jacob held her hands immediately, then he coughed in warning to Vivian, his brows knitted in a tight frown and his eyes darkened ominously.    

"Ah, I am fine. I am just absent-minded.

 There's a lot I am thinking about." Aware of how her impetuousness might be seen, Vivian lowered her eyes and quickly donned a placid expression.    

"Well. Do you have something else to tell us? If not, I want to discuss something with Jacob, alone,"  Emily said, indicating to Vivian that it was time that she should leave.  

"Then..." Vivian bit her lower lip, looked at Jacob and said, "Then I'll leave you two alone."    

Watching the door close, Jacob turned back to hold Emily's small hands and asked, "Do you need me to fire her?"    

Jacob usually dealt with such matters by himself, but he wanted to hear Emily's suggestion, which was rare and touching.    

"Don't do that. She is a well-performing employee of the company. It will be a pity if we fire her."    

Jacob narrowed his eyes. "But she has shown no respect to you."    

He just could not bear this, because he wanted everyone to respect Emily.    

"She just thinks I'm incompetent. When I win the competition, despite her doubt, I'm sure that she will look at me differently." Emily didn't care about it at all.    

"What competition?" Jacob hadn't known that Emily was competing against others in the company.  

"Yeah. It's to see who can sign the contract with Sky Entertainment first."  

  Jacob recalled that he had seen the materials and samples for Dina on Emily's desk.   

 He knew all about Dina, because the staff of Sky Entertainment had previously tried to tempt him with this woman so that they could get an investment from him.   

 "You are in charge of both Ray and Dina's projects?" Jacob asked with brows raised.    

"How did you know that?" Emily remembered then that when she had studied the materials at home, Jacob had been with her occasionally. 

Therefore it was not surprising for him to know this, so she replied, "We have already made a deal with Ray's studio, however, the details of Dina's studio is still pending, so..."    

"Let me help you."
