Episode 62

(Having been signed)

Upon hearing her name being called by Jacob, Emily, who had been waiting on the side for their conversation to end, twitched her mouth into a smile and walked to them.   

 Before Emily had even reached them, Jacob did not hesitate to embrace her in his arms. He asked with an unquestionable tyranny, "Are you satisfied with my answer? Mrs. Gu?"    

As she could feel the murderous stare from Dina, Emily shrank a little and stayed obediently in the safety of Jacob's arms.    

"I am satisfied, Mr. Gu."    

Despite their formal address of calling each other Mrs. Gu and Mr. Gu, the intimate relationship between them was laid bare. Jacob meant to show off that they were husband and wife.  

Dina was trembling violently all over. Pointing at the two who were still holding each other in a firm embrace, her eyes filled with incredulity. She said, "You are... You two!"   

 She hadn't expected that Emily was Jacob's wife, and she was even more surprised that Emily, who looked so ordinary, had actually managed to marry Jacob!    

It was as if the Lord had played a great big joke on her. Dina stayed where she was for a long time, without coming to her senses. Whereas Jacob had already left her sight with his arm around Emily. 

   Walking hand in hand under the silver moonlight with Jacob, Emily asked, "Jacob, is it too much for us to do this to Dina?"    

Just now Dina had looked as if it was the end of the world, and they would still have to cooperate with her. Emily was afraid that if this was the case, their future cooperation would be affected.  

"Is it too much? In my eyes, you are not jealous enough at all." He stopped and turned, and then firmly took Emily's delicate chin between a thumb and forefinger.    

Besides Emily, no woman had ever been able to approach Jacob, not even a little. The only reason why Dina had been allowed to approach him just now, and even leave a print on his shirt, was because he had deliberately given her the opportunity.    

In doing so, Jacob wanted to see how Emily, who was in the shadows, would respond.    

Tonight, Emily was wearing a figure hugging evening gown with a white feather hemline, and half of her shoulders were left bare. When she lifted her jaw, her white neck would draw into a beautiful arc. She resembled a noble swan from a distance.    

But his breath lingered over Emily's face, which made her feel sick. She frowned slightly and said, "I am jealous. But Jacob, you are drunk."  

She didn't know how much Jacob had drunk while he was not in her sight, but now every single breath of his was like a glass of mellow red wine.    

"Hum." After hearing the satisfactory answer, Jacob suddenly let lose her jaw and embraced her tightly with a barely contained passion.    

His head leaned against Emily's shoulder while breathing into her ear, his eyes half closed. He admitted then that tonight he was indeed quite drunken. The calm composure in front of Dina was all pretend, as he would only show his fragile side of inebriated drunkenness in front of Emily.    

Emily felt as if all Jacob's weight was leaning on her, so she adjusted her posture and embraced him with support.    

She muttered in disapproval, "Why did you drink so much? Did you think that it was water?"   

 In a daze, Jacob heard Emily's motherly style nagging. His mouth curled up and he said, "Yes."  

"..." Emily was speechless. Held tightly in Emily's arms, Jacob then fell asleep. 

Fortunately, Sam found them at last. 

With his help, Emily moved Jacob to their car and they drove back to their home. At last, Dina, having been blown about in the cold wind for a long time outside, was finally found by her agent. "Dina, why are you hiding out here? We've been looking all over for you for a long time."

 Later that evening, it was the business association meeting of Dina's studio. 

Dina, as the public face of the studio, was naturally expected to meet with the many partners, and it had taken the concerned agent a long time to find her. 

Dina was emotionless, and her eyes were hollow. She said in a toneless voice to the agent, "Emily is Jacob's wife." 

Although the agent did not know why Dina would suddenly mention this, she nodded, "Yes, almost everybody in Jingshi City knows it."  

When Jacob and Emily had gotten married, all the commercial stations in the country had broadcast the news. Naturally, everybody knew about it.  

  "It's just that you were filming abroad at that time, so it's not surprising that you didn't know about it."    

Yeah, just because she didn't know about it, she had been played like a monkey by the two. A trace of hatred flashed in Dina's beautiful eyes, and her red nails dug into her own arms, leaving red gouge marks.    

But it was okay. If this was the case, Emily, as a married woman, could not take Ray from her!    

At the thought of this, Dina suddenly gave a wild laugh, and a smile of success spread over her face.    

The agent was frightened by Dina's uncertain mood swings. She frowned and asked, "Dina, are you alright? If you are alright, we should hurry back inside." 

 "Am I alright? I am fine! Actually, I've never been better!" Dina turned and glanced at her, then she shook out her long hair and said, "Come on, let's meet with those stinky old men."    

Her three-inch silver high-heel shoes beat a rapid staccato on the marble floor. Every step of hers seemed to declare that she, Dina, was the victor of what had just happened.    

However, the next day she was not as happy.   

 "What did you say?" asked Dina. She moved her manicuring set aside, sat up straight and looked at the broker who had just handed her the contract.    

The broker set the signed contract on the table. She cleared her throat, and said with a trace of guilt, "The board asked us to work with SL Jewelry, and the contract had to be signed today. I've signed it. Please look it over, Miss Dina."   

 This news hit Dina like a thunderbolt from a clear blue sky. Dina, who had hoped to meet with Emily later, turned gloomy. She asked in a sullen voice, "Did you sign the contract with Emily this morning? Is that why you were not in the studio?"  

The broker wiped the sweat of her palm, but when she thought of the boss's instructions to her, she straightened up and said, "Yes, this contract brings hundreds of advantages rather than disadvantages to our studio. I think it's good."    

"God damn it! Why didn't you ask for my opinion?" Dina was like an angry roaring lioness, and she grabbed the nail clippers beside her and threw it at the broker's face.   

 Emily and Jacob had played tricks on her like that, and she hadn't even had the chance to make Emily suffer for it. How could she possibly be expected to cooperate with Emily without her authorization?    

The broker quickly avoided the nail clippers' attack by dodging the flying weapon. Covering her palpitating heart, she looked at the angry diva like she was a lioness. She said in a carefully neutral voice, "Dina, listen to me, please. I know that I acted without your say-so this time, but there's pressure on me from the company. We must cooperate with SL." 

 "Besides, isn't Ray cooperating with them too? You can also take this opportunity to communicate more with him." Knowing that Dina was angry and would not listen to reason, the broker had cleverly mentioned Ray.    

"You!" Dina pointed at the broker, who was wearing a flattering smile, unable to speak for a long time.    

Staring at the contract on the table, she knew that the cooperation had already been decided and she could not change it. So she drew her hand back angrily and sank down heavily on the sofa.   

 "I don't care. I can cooperate with SL, on the condition that the designer be Emily."    

The broker saw that Dina had finally compromised, and she gladly wiped her sweaty palms again. "Sure, the project team of Director Emily is the one which we are associating with this time."
