Episode 66

(Stay away from her)

Sam was overwhelmed with anxiety as he stared at Jacob who sat calmly on the sofa. He looked at his wristwatch and then hesitantly asked Jacob, "Mr. Jacob, are we seriously going to wait for him here?"    

Sam was worried about Jacob's appointments. He was sure that Jacob was scheduled for an important transnational video conference soon. It would be inappropriate for Jacob to stay and wait for Ray.    

Jacob raised his head and cast a glance at Sam. He smirked and said, "You think I was just joking, huh?"    

"Of course not sir!" Sam felt nervous but he still reminded Jacob, "It's just that you are scheduled for an important meeting soon."    

"Oh, just cancel it,"  Jacob replied with an indifferent tone. He then casually dusted off his trousers. His face was remained callous as if he was only interested in Ray's arrival.  


Sam's words were interrupted by a cold voice from outside.    

"Brook, I have something to tell you. Come out here!" Ray shouted as he stood outside.   

 "Oh my God…" Brook's face became pale in panic. He was overwhelmed with dark thoughts about what was about to happen. He turned towards Jacob and became enveloped with fear.    

Jacob's face was painted with anger. He stood up with murderous eyes and strode out of the room. He was followed immediately by Sam.    

Brook couldn't help but mutter to himself, 'Ray, what kind of a fool are you? You should have come back later. This will be a disaster!' He shook his head and decided to follow them outside.    

Jacob's fist was already clenched the moment he saw Ray. He approached Ray with cold eyes and immediately swung his fist towards the young man's delicate face.  

"Ah!" The screams from shocked female employees echoed throughout the studio.   

 Ray was startled by the sudden punch to his face. He was hit so hard that he was forced to take a few steps back as he received the blow. His legs became wobbly from the punch. He tasted iron as blood leaked out from his mouth.    

"Jacob?" Ray cried out in a startled voice. He wiped the blood off his mouth and stared at the man who had a face painted with cold anger. Ray was still confused as to what had happened but he was able to calm down and recover from the hit.    

Jacob dropped his fist and looked down at Ray. He stared down with cold, scornful eyes at the young man as if to project his authority. He said with a stern, harsh voice, "Yes, it's me."    

His eyes were filled with hostility and he didn't even reflect any hint of guilt. He thought that Ray deserved to be punched. Ray then smirked as a devious idea came to his mind. He let out a meaningful laugh as he stared back at Jacob with crafty eyes.  

"Mr. Jacob, you seem to be unconcerned about the gossips as instead of suppressing the news, you've come to hit me instead. You must be very confident about your social status!" Ray mocked Jacob with a crooked smile. He straightened himself up and continued to stare back at Jacob with eyes filled with deceit as if to deliberately provoke Jacob even more.   

 "Ray, I'm only warning you once. Emily is not a woman you can covet!" Jacob warned coldly. He reverted to his confident and dignified look. He ignored Ray's provocations and instead stared back at him coldly.   

 Ray was startled by Jacob's sudden calmness and immediately dropped his stare to the floor. He knitted his eyebrows and said sarcastically, "Do you worship Emily that much? Do you believe that every man around her will just immediately fall for her and try to covet her?"   

 'Emily has already mothered two children. What the heck can I even get if I ever coveted her? Motherly love? Being the stepfather of her two children? Jacob has such ridiculous thoughts!' Ray couldn't help but snort at Jacob's stupid delusion. However, Ray remembered how Emily smiled towards Beryl that day. This made Ray hesitate and instead just stared silently at Jacob like he understood where Jacob's delusions were from.  

Jacob continued to threaten Ray, "You'd better stay away from her, or I will make your life miserable!"    

He stood straight with his hands still clenched. He cast ominous glances to the young man in front of him. Then, his eyes wandered around the studio, and with a cold tone, he asked, "How long did you struggle before you became a famous idol? A year? Two years? Or maybe even more?"    

Ray had made his first public appearance when he was just a teenager. However, he had a difficult time at the start of his acting career. He had no one who could support him financially. He remained as an inconspicuous little star in the performing-arts circles for quite some time. He only managed to improve his status when he met his agent, Brook.  

 "Listen to my advice, Ray. Stay away from Emily or I will destroy everything you've worked hard for and bankrupt you in an instant!"    

Jacob's voice was calm, but his threat was enough to make Ray shiver in fear. His serious eyes stared sharply at Ray, like a dagger to Ray's throat. Ray unconsciously swallowed as cold sweat trickled down his nape.  

Brook was also overwhelmed with uneasiness. He spent a lot of time and money to develop Ray and even regarded the young man as his masterpiece. He was afraid to lose his investments, so he rushed towards them and tried to be a peacemaker.    

"Mr. Jacob... Mr. Jacob, don't be angry. Ray is still young. If he did something wrong to you, it must be a mistake. He doesn't mean to offend you. Please find it in your heart to forgive him."    

Brook stood in the middle of Ray and Jacob to prevent any further physical confrontation between the two. However, he was enveloped with terror as Jacob stared coldly at him. He suddenly felt like chills in his spine because of Jacob's dagger-like gaze.    

"He is still young?" Jacob sneered. He believed that it didn't matter what age the man was. He would treat any man around Emily as a possible rival in love and would be cautious nonetheless.    

Brook adjusted his spectacles and said with no guilt in his voice, "Yes. He is still immature and prone to make mistakes. 

There might be a misunderstanding between you two. I don't think Ray would intentionally offend you."  

Jacob was not annoyed by his affirmation, instead, he put on a meaningful smile and said, "Can you tell me what the misunderstanding between him and me is?"    


Brook was bewildered by Jacob's calm response. He racked his brains to provide an answer that would not further offend Jacob. He was finally about to speak when he saw Sam approached Jacob and whispered something in Jacob's ear. Suddenly, Jacob's expression changed.   

 "Ray, you better heed my words. If you cherish your status, stay away from Emily."    

Jacob uttered his final threat and walked out. He didn't even look back as he walked away from the Sky Entertainment Group Limited.    

Half an hour ago, Emily sat in her office. She browsed through dozens of documents and commented on them.    She was startled when Joyce pushed the door and rushed towards her.  

"Director Emily, the police are here!" Joyce's voice was filled with panic.  

 "The police?" Emily's eyebrows were knitted as her worry was displayed on her face. She stood up and walked out of her office as she asked Joyce, "Why are they here?"    

Joyce shook her head in denial. She followed Emily out of the office with haste. "I don't know. However, they said that they wanted to take Director Vivian with them for investigation."    

Emily walked out of her office and became immediately concerned about the employees gathered at the door of Vivian's office.    

"Ahem, it is still office hours. Have all of you finished all of your work?" Emily asked in a cold tone. The crowd immediately scattered quietly and returned to their seats.    

Emily entered Vivian's office and turned towards a police officer. "Sir, can I ask what are you doing here at our company?"  

Her voice was polite and she even nodded to the officer in a friendly fashion.   

 "Hello, Miss. Are you in charge of this company? Ms. Vivian is suspected to be involved in an information theft case. We are ordered to take her back with us to the police station for investigation."    

Emily was about to open her mouth and say something, but Vivian immediately replied, "An information theft case? 

That's impossible! I'm in the company all day. You can even ask my colleagues and they can vouch for me."    

"She is telling the truth, sir. It might be just a misunderstanding. She is at the company all day long." Emily immediately vouched for Vivian's alibi. 

Emily hated Vivian but she decided to help her this time for the company's interests.    

"Ms. Vivian, you had hired hackers to steal videos from the Sky Entertainment Group Limited. We have enough evidence to name you as the prime suspect. Please obediently follow us to the police station."  

'Vivian hired hackers to steal videos from Sky Entertainment Group Limited?' Emily's mind was shocked by the sudden news. A sudden thought flashed across her mind. She stood silently and astonished as she watched how the story would develop.    

Vivian was overwhelmed with fear as she realized that her crime was exposed. She looked at the two uniformed officers in front of her, as she felt terrified that they would take her away and ruin her life. She then rushed over to Emily and held Emily's arm.   

 "Emily, I didn't do that! It might be just a misunderstanding. Please help me! 

Jacob is a powerful man. He can definitely save me,"  Vivian pleaded as tears run down her cheeks.   

 "I'm sorry, Vivian. I can't help you. I'm sure that if you had nothing to do with the allegations, the investigation would prove that you are innocent,"  Emily replied with a callous tone. She pulled back her arm and took a few paces backward. She stared at Vivian with an indifferent expression.  

She now suspected Vivian to be the culprit about the rumors of her love affair.    

"No! Please! Emily, help me! If I go to the police station, I'll be ruined! My whole life would be a disaster! Please! Help me! I don't want to go there!" Vivian cried with desperation.    

Vivian stretched out her arms as she tried to reach for Emily. She realized that she would be found guilty if an investigation would happen. Her life would definitely be devastated if they found out the truth. She continued to beg for Emily's sympathy.  

  Emily remained callous towards Vivian. She sidestepped her, but unfortunately, she hit the cabinet and knocked it down.
