Six years ago, she was framed by her wicked sister and was abandoned by her then husband while she was pregnant. Six years later, she started anew with a different identity. Oddly, the same man who abandoned her in the past had not stopped pestering her at her front door. “Miss Gibson, what’s your relationship with Mister Lynch?” She smiled and answered nonchalantly, “I don’t know him.” “But sources say that you were once married.” She answered as she tucked her hair, “Those are rumors. I’m not blind, you see.” That day, she was pinned on the wall the moment she stepped in her door. Her three babies cheered, “Daddy said mommy’s eyes are bad! Daddy says he’ll fix it for mommy!” She wailed, “Please let me go, darling!”View More
That was why at that moment, even after Rianna had passed for almost 30 years, Adrian could barely remember what she looked like. He had almost forgotten everything about her, too.Thus, after being silent for a while, in the end, he could only say once more, "She truly was a great person. It's a pity that she had such a short life."Joshua sneered listening to Adrian talking. His heart turned cold. "I have other things to do, so I'm going to end this call."Joshua took a deep breath and calmly added, "I'll get Lucas to transfer fifteen thousand to you.""Fifteen thousand?!" Adrian was instantly infuriated. "How is fifteen thousand enough for anyone? Are you joking, Joshua? You have assets worth billions, yet you're only giving your father fifteen thousand? Don't you think other people would laugh at you when they hear that?"Joshua sneered. "Mr. Adrian Lynch, if I remember correctly, the family gave you at least three million after Granny passed away. It's enough for you to live.
"Joshua, I know that you don't like me. You even hate me, but if I had any other choice, I wouldn't have looked for you."Adrian began to complain, "Some time back, a group called Orming Tech came to Banyan City to do business. They were looking for a partner and found me."You know how careful I am. Initially, I never thought of working with them, but I had no choice. They were great at brainwashing people. After your aunt was brainwashed, she forced me to invest with her."I had a momentary lapse of judgment, so I agreed to it and even invested all of my money in it."I initially thought I could earn from that and have a good life with your aunt, but…"Hearing Adrian's words, Joshua narrowed his gaze. He swiftly typed in his computer to search for Banyan City's recent news.He had not paid attention to things in Banyan City for a long time, but his home base was still in Banyan City, which was why anything that happened to the malls in Banyan City, someone would compile a docum
It was until the door to the study door closed that Joshua finally let out a sigh. He slumped to the chair by the side as if his energy was depleted.He closed his eyes. Luna's words to him kept ringing in his ears.'Thomas always had a prejudice toward you. The truth is, it's because of your mother.''Joshua, your mother didn't die in childbirth. She was killed by your father.''As for the things that happened when you were five…it's not your fault. You don't need to blame yourself.'Joshua smiled self-deprecatingly.How was that not his fault? How was he not to be blamed?Although he could not clearly remember his memories when he was five, he did remember a crazy woman rushing toward him, asking him to call her his mother.Back then, he was mature for a five-year-old. He also knew that his mother had passed away and would never return. However, everyone in the Lynch family has never shown him his mother's photo.His father said that it was unnecessary. His grandmother said
Luna was taken aback as she stared at Joshua in disbelief. "Y—You…brought Thomas back?""Mhm. He was drunk at a bar, and I bumped into him."Joshua held Luna tighter to his form as he placed his chin on her head and gently kissed her fragrant hair. "He's downstairs right now. Yannie is taking care of him."Luna paused for a while before remembering that Yannie initially wanted to leave but Nellie kept holding her back, wanting her to look at her designs.Did that mean…Yannie stumbled upon Joshua bringing Thomas back? That was too much of a coincidence."This isn't a coincidence." Joshua seemed to have guessed what Luna was thinking and could not help but smile. He gently reached his hand out and ruffled Luna's hair. "I got Nellie to make Yannie stay."Joshua's deep voice came from the top of Luna's head. "If Yannie was telling you the truth, Thomas' misunderstanding toward me might be more than I imagined. If Yannie isn't there, even if Thomas comes around, he wouldn't be willing
Luna did not know whether to laugh or cry.She immediately got out of Joshua's arms. "Nigel…""You two continue." He opened the door to the study. "My siblings will care for me."He thought for a while before saying, "Aunt Yannie will take care of me too."Then, he shut the door and left.Luna blushed a little. Before she could say anything, Joshua hugged her waist from behind. "The boy is very understanding. We can't disappoint him now, can we?"Then, he gently kissed her cheeks.Feeling his warmth, Luna's heart constricted tightly. She turned to look at his angular face. "Joshua.""Hmm?""We've found Riley's parents." Luna sniffled. In the end, she still could not help but bring up this topic. "When… When will we be able to find our daughter?"She only dared to bring up this topic when she was alone with Joshua at that moment.That day, when she saw Thomas and Yannie appearing together at the hospital, she felt inexplicably sad although she looked calm outwardly.She knew
Joshua returned home and headed to the study. When he pushed the door to enter, he spotted Luna reading the information Nigel searched for her.Yannie had told everything Thomas told her, including the truth about Joshua's mother's death, to Luna. The first thing Luna did after listening was to tell it to Joshua. Secondly, she had Nigel help search for any records.She understood Joshua too well. If she did not ask Nigel to help with the investigation, he would get Lucas to do it. She rather did it on her own and got Nigel to help rather than waiting for him to investigate and doing nothing about it.Nigel was having his summer break, too. He did not have to go to school and had much spare time in his hands."What are you reading?"After entering the study, Joshua took off his tie and walked over. He put a hand on the table and another one on Luna's waist while looking at the laptop screen in front of Nigel.It was the information Nigel found in the mental asylum in Banyan City.
Not many people knew Wendy had been detained. If Joshua decided to tell everyone she was detained because she had exposed other people's privacy in a live stream…she would never have the chance to work in the entertainment industry anymore!Wendy took a deep breath and looked back at her assistants. "Let's go."At this moment, she did not have the power and courage to go against Joshua. She needed to be able to work in the entertainment industry.After taking a few steps, still bitter, she turned around and looked at Joshua. "If I remember correctly, your business in Merchant City got disrupted and interfered with by someone more than a month ago. Why did you come out now?"Wendy's true question was obvious. Thomas had been meddling with Joshua's business, so why did Joshua want to help Thomas repeatedly?Joshua knew what she was asking about. He curled up his lips and smiled. "Because I have a cousin. His family name is Howard."Wendy fell silent at this response. She bit her li
"Let go of me…" Even though Thomas was outright intoxicated, he could tell the woman in front of him was not Yannie. He pushed Wendy away and stumbled his way back to his seat. "I want to drink more… I'm not drunk! I don't need to rest!"After that, he took out some cash and slammed it on the bar. "Serve me my drinks!"The bartender did not dare to take his money as he looked at how drunk Thomas was. He looked at Wendy sheepishly before he glanced at Thomas. "Mr. Howard," he feebly replied, "you can't drink anymore."Thomas sneered, "Why not? I have money!"He took out a black card from his pocket and slammed it on the table, much to Wendy's sheer surprise as her eyes bugged out of their sockets.She recognized that black card. It was a limited black card issued by the world's largest bank 30 years ago!There were only two cards in this world. One was possessed by the Howard family, and the other was in the custody of the famous and reputable family from Saigen City, the Lemingto
