After three years of living with my wife’s family, everyone thought they could treat me like a pushover. Me? I’m just waiting for her to hold my hand before I can give her the world.
“Young Master, you must head home with us. The Hannigan family needs you to preside over the general situation.”
“Your father is critically ill and your brother is in jail. You’re the only one who can support the Hannigan family.”
“Your grandma said that we have to bring you back with us.”
In Cloud City’s Olive Street, Samuel Hannigan—who held a gift box and was dressed in clothes bought from a roadside stall—had an indifferent expression.
“I’ve never been one to wheedle with flowery speech ever since I was a child. I can never win her over. My big brother was adored greatly, and my grandmother kicked me out of the Hannigan family because she was afraid that I’d take my brother’s position as heir.
“I’ve been living with the Sue family for three years and suffered so much humiliation. When has the Hannigan family ever shown me care? She was the one who forced me to leave the family, and now she says she wants me to go back? What does she take me for? A dog?
“All I want is to be left alone so I can be a spineless coward in peace. Y’all motherf*ckers should stop bothering me.”
Samuel took big strides and left, leaving the group of people exchanging glances at each other.
The Sue family was a second-rate influential family in Cloud City. When Samuel was in down and out like a dog three years ago, it was Grandfather Sue who personally set up the engagement. At that time, the wedding shocked the entire Cloud City. However, the hubbub was because Yvonne Sue married an unknown piece of trash, thereby inviting ridicule from the entire Cloud City.
Samuel’s true identity was known only by Grandfather Sue, but he passed away due to illness two months after the wedding. From then onward, no one else knew of Samuel’s identity and he went on to adopt the identity of a ‘useless son-in-law’.
During the past three years, Samuel had been ridiculed and treated coldly, but if it was compared to being kicked out of the Hannigan family, the latter scenario was far more ruthless.
He accepted it and had become used to all the back-biting.
It was Grandmother Sue’s birthday that day, and Samuel had selected a gift with much care. The value of the gift was not much and it would surely be laughed at, but there were no two ways about it. That was all he could afford.
As for the incident that happened earlier, Samuel felt calm, almost to the point where he wanted to laugh.
His brother had a way with words, and despite being able to please his grandmother, he was arrogant, domineering, and had a debauched private life. Accidents were bound to happen sooner or later.
Perhaps God was trying to destroy the Hannigan family.
‘What does it have to do with me? I’m nothing more than the Sue family’s spurned son-in-law who lives with his wife’s family.’
Back at the Sue villa, a beautiful figure stood restlessly at the door.
