Deep down, it was just an excuse to comfort James. Even Jacob was taken aback and thrown into a loss. He didn't know what to do at that moment.
Various thoughts and scenes flashed through his mind all at once. He calculated every possibility and recalled everyone's face when suddenly, an idea popped into his head.
Without wasting any more time, he called his assistant Cindy.
"I'm in the meeting room. I need to see you right now." Although Jacob's tone was calm, his words still sounded like a threat.

However, before she could even finish her words, Jacob interrupted her with a gesture.
