Cedar was rendered speechless by Isabelle's actionss. There was no way for him to deal with her.…While Cedar’s room was full of warmth, it felt so cold on the balcony up there. Raphael stared at the man who was sunbathing with a bit of fear.Raphael made a mistake and caused the company to make a significant loss. He even got himself injured in the process.“Father, I’m sorry.”Zachary remained cold and silent. His attitude towards Raphael was the complete opposite of how he treated Isabelle.To the sons of the Schick family, their father had always been a cold and strict man.Raphael was actually very envious of Isabelle. However, he was not the only one to receive such treatment from his father. His father treated Cedar the same way too.Zachary had never treated his sons gently or warmly. Instead, he had raised them with strictness and discipline.“It’s your mistake. Let’s just think of it as a lesson. Since you made a mistake, it won’t do if you’re not punished. You’ll g
After Raphael left, Zachary pondered on what Raphael told him earlier.Zachary did not expect to have a grandchild so soon. Did that mean he would become a grandfather within a year?Zachary touched his face. He still looked as young as Cedar, but he was becoming a grandfather already.How interesting.That child Raphael was really quick to act.Whereas, Lil Lion…Zachary felt that Lil Lion was not suitable to be a mother yet. After all, she was still a child herself.Zachary hoped that Raphael’s child would be a girl. Then, he would have a granddaughter soon. After all, he had always been strict with the boys.…It was a rare occasion where all the children were at home. Caroline was so happy that Raphael, Isabelle, and Cedar were around. She prepared a lot of food and even brought them to some parties for rich wives.Caroline’s children were handsome and beautiful, and she still looked young even as their mother. She made the other wealthy ladies jealous of her. However,
Raymond was surprised when Isabelle contacted him. He did not expect the young Miss of the Schick family to look for him.Isabelle frankly said, “Since Sis Bambi puts a lot of effort into you, and she’s constantly thinking of you, that means she does like you. However, she’s the kind of person that…”Isabelle explained, “I’ve heard about this from my mother. Sis Bambi’s late parents couldn’t let each other know their love before their passing. They didn’t know they loved each other, even until their death. That’s why she isn’t willing to believe in love!“Raymond, since she really wants you to be her lover, that means she does yearn for you. If you really like her, you shouldn’t avoid her. Instead, try to come up with ways to make her face her real feelings.”Raymond fell silent. He carefully considered what Isabelle said with his books in his arms. The students that passed by energetically greeted him.“Hi, Mr. Swift! Bye, Mr. Swift!”Raymond nodded at his students. Then, he ask
When Lucas arrived in Ireland, Cedar was not around as he had returned to Norway to get his identification documents. He could have let his assistant get them for him instead, but he did not.For Cedar, he could let others help in anything else except for the matters relating to his marriage registration. Even if it was troublesome, he still insisted on making a trip just to collect his documents.Isabelle hugged Lucas’s arm and explained, “We’re just signing the papers. I didn’t want to trouble you at first, but I still think that I want you to be our witness! Brother Lucas, you’re very important to me. That’s why I really want you to be my marriage registration’s witness.”During her actual wedding, only Zachary could be the formal witness of their marriage. There was no alternative.Lucas understood Isabelle’s thoughts.“Well, this is already more than enough,” said Lucas.Isabelle suddenly mentioned Caroline.“Brother Lucas, you must really love Mother, right?”Lucas could
After learning about Raymond and Bambi’s story, Caroline enthusiastically helped Raymond to trick Bambi. She also got Leo involved in her plan.Leo was already married to Emmi by then, and he was no longer working as Caroline’s bodyguard. Even so, whenever Caroline requested for him, he would help her immediately. For that, Emmi still disliked Caroline.By the time Leo and Emmi got married, Leo was already a presentable businessman in the Schick Corporation. Tucker trained him well. Gradually, Leo earned his own career and wealth.He was finally at the same status as Emmi, and he could propose to her. At last, they got married.Leo’s dreams came true.Although Emmi did not say anything, she was certainly grateful to Caroline for training Leo well.Five years ago, Caroline told Leo to ‘kidnap’ Raymond. Once they were certain of Bambi’s feelings for Raymond, they injured Raymond severely.Bambi was deeply in love with Raymond.While Raymond was on the verge of dying, Bambi finall
I was born into a simple family. My ordinary family was so poor that my grandfather could not even afford to visit the doctor when he fell sick. He could only endure his sickness and burn his life away like a candle. Gradually, grandfather’s sickness worsened.I was still very young back then. I could not help to reduce his suffering at all, nor could I bring him to the hospital…Since I was young, I knew that I came from a poor family. I knew I would be left all alone after my grandfather was gone. I was afraid for that day to come. I feared the day where I would be left alone in the world.Grandfather knew that no one would take care of me after his passing, so he brought me to visit one of his old comrades-in-arms.That man had no heir, so he wanted someone to be his heir. He had his eyes on me, but he wanted me to change my family name.I was the only child left in the Moore family. If I were to change my name…Although I was still young, I would have never agreed to that.
I returned to the orphanage, but I was still ‘lucky’. An Arbacian couple adopted me, but they were also abusive.The previous couple abused me for two years. Although I had just arrived in a new place, I was not scared at all. Whenever they beat me or scolded me, I remained silent. Fortunately, they were not extremely abusive. They only used me as an outlet to vent whenever they were in a bad mood. Most of the time, they were a pretty sane couple.They sent me to school.Since then, I studied psychology without their knowledge. I even used their money to look for a psychology teacher.I was still a nobody at that time. I had no wealth, but I knew the ability to read someone’s mind and control them. It made the road to my success much easier. The path of learning was challenging and lonely. However, the girl remained as my only mental support and kept me going.I promised her that we would meet again. However, I was sure that she might not be able to recognize me at all. Even
