“Ma, no matter what you say, he’s still Kylie’s father and your son-in-law. Don’t ridicule him like that anymore!”“Those matters from the past are far behind us now. You should stop talking about it too!”Selena was just as kind and understanding as before.“Bullsh*t! We’ve never recognized him as our son-in-law. This doesn’t count!” Fiona retorted.“That’s right. If not for him, my leg wouldn’t be in this state!” Andrew was similarly holding his grudge.“But what mistake did he commit? Back then, I slept with him out of spite. I didn’t expect myself to be pregnant from that!”Selena felt helpless. It was indeed her own brazen action that caused this. However, she really could not bear aborting the child.The situations they face up to that point were considered compensations for the mistake she made back then.“But you didn’t have to carry the child. You...you’re really trying to give me a heart attack!”Fiona stomped her foot in frustration.“Nevermind. It is what it is. He’s back f
“That’s right. These bums are talking about war and bringing glory to the country. What a joke!”The other youngster snickered along.Bang, bang!However, the very next instant, both youngsters only saw a blur then was sent flying away and slammed into the wall behind them, causing it to crash.“Pfft!”Both of them spat out a mouthful of fresh blood. Their legs stiffened, then stopped moving.“Ah! Murder!”Both the girls shrieked as though they had just seen a ghost, running away immediately.“Oh no, Fane, you’ve killed someone. What if they’re some important people or belong to some organization? What’re we going to do?”Seeing the two of them lying there motionless, Joan went pale. “Y-y-you’re just too hot-headed. This is not the battlefield. There are some people that we can’t afford to offend. Do you think you’re still on the battlefield where killing your opponent was fine?”“Why can’t you hold your temper? They’ve only said a few words!”Selena was extremely frustrated as well, u
“Are these three people sane? They look so dirty. Look at that woman wearing a street cleaner’s uniform and a straw hat. Good heavens, isn’t this an exclusive store for that famous international brand?”A rich woman sneered coldly as she looked over whilst picking her clothes. She was holding onto a branded bag.“I’m sorry, madam. I’ll have them leave immediately!”The beautiful saleswoman beside her immediately responded with a customary smile, then turned around to instruct the other saleswoman, “Go, send them out of here. Don’t let them lower our store’s class!”The saleswoman quickly strutted over in her high heels and approached Fane’s group of three. “Hello. Are you here to buy clothes? We’re a branded store. Our products are from overseas and of high quality…”That saleswoman was an experienced employee. She was sure that when put that way, those poor people would naturally realize that they came to the wrong place and quietly take their leave. However, she had obviously made a
“All three dresses suit you well, honey. Do you like it? We’ll get them if you like it!”The two saleswomen no longer dared to look down on Fane. They merely stood there pitifully.Hearing Fane’s words, Selena blushed. She was still a little unused to the term ‘Honey’.“I still think it’s too expensive!”By then, Selena had already changed back into her clothes. She took a look at the three dresses, then replied with a smile. “It’s the thought that counts. One dress will do, no need for that many!”“Hehe, just admit that you’re poor and drop the act. Don’t even think of leaving the store if you can’t pay up today!” Sister Karen, the rich woman, started sneering at them.When the saleswomen heard those words, they felt delighted. ‘These three poor blokes are acting so insolent even though they’re poor. Let’s see how you deal with it now that you met a stronger figure.’However, out of their expectations, Fane passed the three dresses to the saleswoman that he slapped earlier. “Just thes
“Settle the matter? How do you plan to settle this? For that matter, I’m at fault too. Furthermore, Old Master Taylor is still my grandfather. Are you planning to beat him up?”Selena smiled bitterly, then said, “This time, you come with us and just stay quiet in a corner. After so many years, Grandpa’s temper should have improved. Maybe a few good words will stop them from pursuing this matter.”“Alright, I’ll try my best to follow your instructions and avoid acting. Otherwise, you’ll complain that I’m being too violent!”Fane laughed bitterly. He wanted to see for himself how the people from the Taylor family would treat him without knowing his identity. Furthermore, the reason he came back this time was not to be the Supreme Warrior. He only wished to peacefully accompany his woman and care for his mother, living life comfortably.Taking a taxi, the group of three quickly arrived at the gates of Taylor Residence. “That brat is really brazen to actually hit Young Master Taylor. Did
“Honorable? Hehe, if you’re not wearing such clothing, I might just believe it!”Cecilia sneered, then added, “There should be a few dresses in there. From the looks of it, some were bought for Selena, right? I’m guessing the total should be some tens of thousand bucks!”Cecilia commented as she looked through the content. She suddenly saw a dress and took it out of the bag. “It can’t be. T-t-this is a limited edition worldwide! This dress is over a hundred thousand bucks! It’s the newest model from this brand!”Hearing those words, several people from the Taylor family had a shocked expression.It was not that they could not afford that dress, but it was weird that Fane’s group could afford it.Moreover, it was not some high-end watch or jade pieces, but just a dress. Even those from the Taylor family would think twice before spending hundreds and thousands of bucks.“Put the dress back. I don’t want your hand dirtying Selena’s dress!”Upon seeing her taking the dress out, Fane’s expr
Old Master Taylor was having mixed feelings. Fane’s guess was almost spot on.The Old Master was a person that cared greatly about his reputation. Back then, he had Fane marry into the Taylor family to prevent Ivan from being enlisted. That itself was already something that affected the Taylor family’s reputation.He never expected an even greater shame to come later on. Fane was only married to Selena for a day when he got enlisted the very next day. However, Selena became pregnant soon after.He was aware that Selena had gotten drunk that night. He even suspected that it could have been Fane that forced himself on Selena.Never did he expect Selena to claim that it was voluntary. That matter almost gave him a heart attack.That was why, in a fit of rage, he kicked Selena, her parents, and her 14 years old brother out of the Taylor Residence.As for Selena’s inability to be employed and the restrictions placed on her, that was the work of Ivan.“Are you sure I can write any amount?”F
“This can’t be. Grandpa is acknowledging Fane’s identity as the son-in-law of the Taylor family?”Upon hearing the Old Master’s words, some of the Taylor family members had a shocked expression on their faces.‘Grandpa used to pamper Selena. It’d seem that Grandpa’s anger had subsided after all these years. Within Selena’s body still flows the blood of our Taylor family, after all.’ A member of the Taylor family speculated quietly in his mind.“Grandpa!”Selena pursed her red lips and felt her tears surfacing. She knew her grandfather had been keeping tabs on her in secret. The old man was only unable to lower himself all this while.For Zeus Taylor, his reputation was more important than anything else.“However?” Fane scowled. He knew that it would not be that simple.“However, the matter of you injuring Ivan’s arm can’t be settled just like that!”The old man’s tone changed once more as he continued, “You need to pay compensation!”“That’s right. Grandpa’s right. My arm is fractured.
