“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
“Master, Master! I’ve made several phone calls, and I finally found something about the whole situation with Fane. It’s very peculiar!”Spectre Face called out to James as he rushed in frantically.“Peculiar?”James was somewhat startled when he heard what Spectre Face had to say. He never thought he would describe Fane as ‘peculiar’.“Have a look. This is the information I got from people I tasked in the military to look into Fane.”“There’s only his name, his ID number, and his past job as a takeout delivery boy. After that, he became the son-in-law of the Taylor family. He got enlisted on the second day of his marriage, and what happens after that is something we can’t find. Suddenly, five years later, he returned to the Middle Province!”Spectre Face frowned and said, “Isn’t such a casefile peculiar? Not only was information during his enlistment a mystery, but the department he was enlisted in was unknown as well. All we could find was that his mother’s name is Joan Xavier,
“Yay, yay! We can go for a meal now!”Kylie was dressed in a beautiful mini princess dress while she pranced delightfully in the courtyard.“Madam, I won’t be joining you guys. I still have some matters to attend to, so I’ll take my leave now.”Jenny smiled at Selena.“A date with your boyfriend again? Oh, you. Hurry up and go!” Selena spoke with a compassionate smile.Joan had already finished her shower at that moment. She changed into the new clothes Fane had bought for her; she looked younger at a short glance. Although she was already in her forties, she looked younger and more elegant.Joan looked effortlessly beautiful, and she had her natural elegance as well. Although she was usually dressed in her cleaner’s uniform to work, she still emanated a personal grace that only belonged to her and no one else.It was also this reason that Fane's father fell in love with her back then.Unfortunately…“Ma, you look pretty in that dress!”Selena smiled as she took a look at Joa
In the restaurant, Fiona Lewis was so angry that her complexion turned red and her chest heaved.She would not be mocked and looked down on in these past five years if it was not because of Fane Woods. Fane Woods was the reason for everything. Everything happened because of this useless son-in-law.Instantly, the atmosphere became very tense!Fiona thought of Young Master Clark and Young Master Wilson, who were young masters of second-class aristocratic families and were richer than the Taylor family. When she thought about the 50 million that Young Master Wilson was willing to pay as a betrothal gift, all she wished was to immediately chase away this veteran brat in front of her.She hated how this brat had taken advantage of her drunk daughter at the night of the wedding and would never forgive him.With so many eyes on him, she wanted to see how Fane would conclude the matter.It was rumored that veterans who came back from war would get a generous amount of bonus, but it w
“Oh my, I am so full. It’s so delicious. I haven’t eaten good food like this for such a long time!”Fiona ate to her heart’s content. She had suffered a lot for these past five years. It was all because of that bastard, Fane Woods. He did not only cause her daughter to be driven out of the Taylor family, even both of them old folks suffered together.It had been five years, she had not eaten luxury meals like this for five years!She did not care if Fane had the money to pay the bill. After all, the person who would suffer from the embarrassment was not her. After all, nobody asked Fane to act rich and offer to pay.“Wow, I’m so jealous! I estimate that this table’s bill must be around 200 thousand! That is the most expensive red wine available here!”Most of the people at the tables around them had not left, quite a number of people looked at the delicious dishes on the table and were extremely envious.“It really is a lot. Especially the 20 bottles of red wine that they only dr
