“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.
“Young Master Wilson, what are you doing here?”Ivan greeted the Wilson family’s young master the moment he noticed him.“What did you say earlier, Young Master Wilson? Fifty million? You’re willing to offer a fifty million bucks lottery reward?”Overwhelmed with emotions, Fiona’s eyes lit up. “Is your word good?” she sputtered.One should know that the Wilsons and the Clarks were both second-class aristocratic families. Simply put, they were significantly wealthier than their Taylor family.“Of course, Auntie. Do we look like people who’d go back on their word? I’m still a member of the Wilson family, my word is still good!”Young Master Wilson chuckled as he spoke, yet he was simultaneously admiring the seemingly perfect appearance of Selena. He could not hold himself back as he gulped.Young Master Wilson was extremely fat; so much so that he resembled a pig. Not only was he extremely gluttonous, but he was very interested in women as well.He was instantly charmed back when
As James listened to what his staff had to say, he could not hold back his bitter chuckle. “The Gods of Wars are way above our status, and they’re not easy to butter up,” he stated. “Not to mention, this is a female God of War. We don’t even know what she likes and dislikes!”He paused when that point was brought up. He continued, “I’m afraid all of the major powerhouses wanted nothing more than to sweet-talk to the God of War upon her return. Fortunately, we went through so much to learn of her flight today, and it seems the other powerhouses knew absolutely nothing.”The middle-aged man in front of him nodded his head and said, “The gift we sent for the God of War Lana, did she accept it?”“Hehe...still ain’t bad. She accepted the hospitality we arranged for her. It’s a different story for the money, though. She was quite disinterested with it!”James chuckled and said, “Lana seems to dislike it when people try to flatter her. Not to mention, we have no idea how exactly we can ca
Selena initially thought her mother would help her carry the clothes in her hands when she snatched and tossed them into the lake.It was already too late by the time she came to her senses. Those three sets of clothes that cost nearly two hundred thousand had been audaciously tossed into the lake beside her.“What on Earth are you doing, Ma? Those were authentic! Who told you they were fake?”Selena was so agitated that she stomped. Alarmed, she rushed over as her eyes grew red and she seemed like she was about to cry. It was the first time Fane had gotten her clothes. After all the hardships she had endured for the five years they were married, she finally had a taste of luxury. This meant her endurance for the past five years was not for nothing!“Authentic? How are those even genuine? And if they truly were, can he even afford them?”The skeptical Fiona crossed her arms at her chest. She was unconvinced that Fane had that much money to have bought international branded clothes
