Episode 59

(I love you, I love you)

'Why would you compare yourself with a little boy like Ray?' Emily couldn't understand Jacob's reason for feeling insecure.    

"Of course not! You are much better than him. You're mine,"  Emily answered.    

Disregarding his anger, Emily reached out and wrapped her hands around his neck like a koala bear.    

"When I say 'different', I mean that if you help me the people in our company will blame me for relying on you to do everything. But if Ray helps me, it means that I'm being resourceful. If I'm not resourceful, what is the point of me being the director?"   

All Emily wanted was to demonstrate that everything she had was achieved through her hard work and diligence and not handed to her on a plate by Jacob. 

 Emily's composed and well-structured answer registered in Jacob's brain and he realized that she wasn't the young naive girl she once was, and she was a grown-up, who was capable of handling things on her own.    

Jacob fell silent.   

 "Honey, you could not keep me hidden under your wings forever, right?"  

  Emily gently caressed his chest urging him to understand what she was trying to say.   

 Emily knew that Jacob loved her and also loved to spoil her. But that was also why she wanted to become a self-sufficient person who deserved to be with someone like him.    

"You little twerp. You know what? Sometimes I wish I could..."    

Jacob heaved a deep sigh and shifted his body to bury his head in Emily's shoulder.   

 "Emily, sometimes I wish I could just shrink you so that I could carry you with me wherever I went,"  he said slowly.  

'Or hide you somewhere so that no one could see your beauty or steal you away from me...' he spoke the rest in his mind.    
'Wait! Is he trying to restrict my freedom and personal space again?' Emily's brows furrowed with frustration at the thought that Jacob even knew her daily schedule.    

"Jacob, are you... having difficulties, like dealing with the closing of the company?" Emily asked hesitantly, but out of concern.    

'Lately, Jacob's been worrying a lot about losing me as if I were going to disappear into thin air, but I'm very happy and healthy. There's no reason for him to worry. I wonder what's wrong with him?'    
"No, the company runs very well under my charge." Jacob seemed a bit startled by her question, but he shook his head and smiled confidently.   

 'Emily, I'm quite good at business. Don't you remember that? Our company will never go bankrupt as long as I'm in charge of it. Why would you ask such a ridiculous question, my love?' Jacob pondered.  

Emily bit her lower lip and said, "So... don't behave like this, okay? Sometimes you make me worry about you."    

Emily had a good reason to be skeptical because it wasn't healthy for a person to spend his time constantly worrying about things that weren't really problems.    

Thinking that Jacob's medicine to cure mental disease was once changed by others, Emily asked tentatively, "Jacob, did you... have a recurrence of your old illness?"    

Jacob froze for a second and quickly denied Emily's suspicion.    

"Don't think too much, darling. I will always be fine as long as you are with me."    

Letting go of Emily, Jacob fixed her hair and pushed her bangs behind her ear. "Have you forgotten? You are my cure, always."    

'My mental illness can only be cured mentally. And you, my dear, are the only cure I will ever need...'  

However, Jacob also wondered why he was suffering from so many mood swings lately. As he thought more of it, he drifted off into deep contemplation.   

 "Well... then promise me that you will talk to me directly about anything and everything you want to know from me. 

And do not behave like you did today, okay?   One more thing, please don't send people to spy on me anymore, okay?" Emily held Jacob's hand and looked at him with big, watery eyes, tilting her head towards him.    

The thought of someone spying on her, watching her every step from behind, made Emily feel very uncomfortable. Somehow it made her feel violated.    

'If things keep going like this, will there be any difference between me and a prisoner?' Emily complained in mind.   

 "Okay, I promise."   

 The entreaty in Emily's eyes really hurt Jacob as he had never thought that his care would bother her so much.  

"I'm sorry,"  he continued.    

Emily smiled at Jacob, with full satisfaction, for being so understanding. She knew it was hard for him to make that sacrifice, but he did it for her, nonetheless.  

  "It's okay. I love you so I know that you are just worried about me,"  she said happily.    

'I love you'— just what Jacob needed to hear. He could feel his heartbeat accelerate as soon as he heard those three words from her.  

  "Emily, say that again." Jacob peered into her eyes.   

 "I love you, I love you, I... hmm..."    

Jacob pulled her face and pressed his lips to hers as the two shared a steamy and passionate moment.    

Meanwhile, Sam, being the thoughtful driver that he was, drove around the city again when he saw the gates of the Tyrone Mansion, just to give them more time with each other.  

By the time they got back, it was already quite late and Jacob carried her inside in his arms.   

 Emily thought that Beryl and Bowen must have finished their meals and were fast asleep in their own rooms. 

Therefore, she did not ask Jacob to put her down.    

However, the moment they stepped through the door, Beryl ran towards them and yelled, "Daddy, Daddy, what is your signature doing in my bag?"   

 In truth, Jacob had replaced Ray's signature with his and put it in Beryl's bag earlier because he was jealous.    

When the little girl saw her mother being carried by her father, she started to worry, "Mommy, what happened? Why is daddy carrying you? Are you okay?"   

 Not knowing how to answer Beryl's question, Emily's face turned red as she buried her face into Jacob's chest and pretended to be asleep.    

Having realized that Emily was pretending, Jacob whispered to Beryl, "Hush, my angel. Mommy had a long day at work today. She was so tired, and she fell asleep in the car. Daddy needs to carry her to bed."  

Beryl quickly covered her mouth with her hands and gestured at him to take her to bed quickly.    

Jacob held back his laughter and nodded his head at Beryl to assure her that everything was going to be fine, before he carried Emily upstairs.   

 Back in their room, Emily opened her eyes as soon as Jacob put her in the bed. She pinched Jacob hard again, her face still red from embarrassment.    

"It's all your fault,"  she complained.    

'If he hadn't made out with me in the car, I wouldn't have to feel so embarrassed in front of Beryl.'   

 Although Emily was blaming Jacob, he could still feel her gentleness and he held her into his arms then left a soft kiss on her forehead.   

 "Yeah, it's my fault, all my fault,"  he admitted it quite honestly.  

For a good five minutes, they laughed, snickered, giggled, and chuckled their tension away.   

 She laid in his arms and asked, "Wait, what did Beryl mean by your signature? And did you get Ray's signature back for Beryl?"    

Last night, he tore the paper which had Ray's signature on it for Beryl by accident, so he promised he would get another one for Beryl. However, Emily did not know that Jacob left his signature on piece of paper for Beryl in her bag.    

"Yes, I've already told Sam to get Ray's signature and bring it back to Beryl." Jacob omitted the first question on purpose, as he closed his eyes, pretending to fall asleep.    

Emily decided not to let go of him so easily as she turned to face Jacob persistently, "Then what about your signature?"    

"Maybe... one of the maid who likes me stole mine from somewhere and then left it in Beryl's bag by mistake." Jacob was shaking, trying his best not to burst out laughing, Emily opened her eyes wide and could not believe that Jacob would find such a ridiculous excuse.  

Jacob lowered his head to cover Emily's lips with his, seeing that she still insisted on the truth.
