The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 556
“Class reunion?” Elaine Ma said disdainfully, “You guys are already a bunch of dying old folks, why would you want to have a class reunion? Haven’t you heard, a class reunion is just an excuse for old lovers to go on dates!”
“Oh my God, shut up!” Jacob Wilson blurted, “There will only be guys at the reunion, we didn’t invite any of our female classmates.”
“Really?” Elaine Ma frowned in disbelief.
“Yes, honest! You should know best how our class was. There were only a handful of female students in our class, and all of them live overseas right now. So, there will only be us male students at the reunion.”
“No, I don’t believe you! You can’t go!” Elaine Ma shouted. “You must be going to see that old lover of yours! Do you think I don’t know!”
Charlie Wade was stunned. Did his father-in-law have some romantic love story in the past?
“What old lover? It’s just a bunch of male friends!”
Elaine Ma snorted disdainfully. She turned her pouty face to the other side and ignored Jacob Wilson.
Jacob Wilson anxiously tried again, “Charlie Wade has to go with me anyway. Our teacher is wheelchair-bound now, there is no elevator in the old campus, so we need a few young and strong men to lift him to the classroom on the fifth floor. Just let Charlie Wade be my witness and report everything he sees to you. If there is a female friend present, I’ll face the music!”
Elaine Ma growled, “No, I won’t let you go!”
Jacob Wilson was a little annoyed by now, and he burst out, “My old friends and I, we haven’t seen each other for years, how can I be absent?! Moreover, our teacher is eighty-something, this is perhaps the last time I’m going to see him!”
Claire Wilson Wilson looked at her parents and said, “Mom, just let Dad go. It’s not easy to organize a class reunion at his age, you don’t want him to be a laughingstock because he misses the gathering, do you?”
Elaine Ma glared at her and said, “What do you know? Your dad hooked up with a vixen in their class for a long time. If I hadn’t tackled him with a little trick, your dad would have gotten together with that vixen! You would never exist!”
Charlie Wade found the remarks a little peculiar and strange. It sounded as though Elaine Ma was the boyfriend snatcher here, but why did she act like she was being reasonable?
Jacob Wilson blushed in embarrassment and huffed at Elaine Ma, “Just stop, don’t blurt out our embarrassing past to the kids!”
Then, he turned to Claire Wilson Wilson and said anxiously, “Claire Wilson Wilson, don’t listen to your mom’s nonsense. She always blabbers nonsense from her mouth just to frame me…”
Claire Wilson Wilson blushed as well. She didn’t want to know about the love triangles between her parents, so, she said to Elaine Ma, “Mom, just let Dad go to the reunion, and you can go to play mahjong. Wouldn’t that be great?”
Jacob Wilson widened his eyes in astonishment and threatened, “Alright, if you don’t let me go to the class reunion, you can’t go play mahjong either! Let’s both stay at home and stare at each other!”
Elaine Ma became outraged and shouted, “D*mn it, I’m going to make money at the mahjong game! Summer is going to the United States soon, I must play a few more games with her before she leaves. Now, I can make at least three to five thousand per game!”
Then, she turned to Charlie Wade and urged anxiously, “Charlie Wade, go with your dad later! Call me immediately if there is a female at the reunion. I’ll tear his face off!”
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 557
Jacob Wilson was intimidated by Elaine Ma’s loud growl, but he spruced himself up and said, “A straight foot has no fear of a crooked shoe!”
Elaine Ma glared at him and uttered, “Ah, I don’t want to talk to you anymore. Okay, I’m going out to play mahjong.”
She then stood up and stretched out her hand at Jacob Wilson saying, “Give me your car key!”
“What? Why would you need a car for your mahjong game? I want to use it later!”
Elaine Ma rolled her eyes and said contemptuously, “Why? Do you want to show off to your friends? No way! Give me the car key, quick!”
Jacob Wilson sighed dejectedly and passed her the car key as he said, “Drive carefully, don’t scratch it.”
“Argh, shut up! If you provoke me again, I’ll drive your car down the drain!”
Jacob Wilson was extremely agitated, but Elaine Ma felt as though she had gotten her revenge. She put on her jacket, a triumphant smile on her face, and walked out the door.
After Elaine Ma left, Jacob Wilson sighed again and said, “Charlie Wade, go with me to the reunion later. Some of my friends will bring some young people to help too.”
“Okay, Dad.” Charlie Wade didn’t want to go but he had to.
Claire Wilson Wilson passed her car key to Jacob Wilson and said, “Dad, drive my car then. I’ll take the taxi to work.”
“Forget it.” Jacob Wilson waved his hand. “Your car is the lousiest model of the BMW 5 Series. My friends will laugh at me if they see it.”
Claire Wilson Wilson shrugged and put the key back into her bag. She said to Charlie Wade, “You guys have to take the taxi then.”
Charlie Wade nodded and threw a sideways glance at Jacob Wilson thinking, ‘D*mn it, the old man is too vain! Do you, out of all people, find Claire Wilson Wilson’s 5 Series to be an embarrassment? Do you know that her car is actually the flagship 760?’
Meanwhile, while Elaine Ma was downstairs and heading toward her car, she heard a familiar voice calling for her.
“Hey, Elaine Ma, wait!”
Elaine Ma looked toward the direction of the voice only to realize that it was Hannah, Christopher’s wife.
She was a little surprised by her presence. She had had a great time humiliating her and her husband the other day at Summer’s villa, yet, she hadn’t expected that this woman would show up here.
She asked curiously, “Hannah, why are you here?”
The couple’s expression of resentment floated into Elaine Ma’s mind, and it made her extremely thrilled and gleeful. Elaine Ma had always worried that her pension would be thrown down the drain if the Wilson family went bankrupt, but unlike before, she had become the person who wanted to see them go bankrupt the most.
It was because she had found a greater source of pleasure—to mock Christopher and Hannah!
If the Wilson family was completely bankrupt, she could insult them daily!
Christopher and Hannah had been mocking them for as long as she remembered, so she wanted to pay back for what they did to her!
Hence, she was quite happy to see Hannah here because the loser had actually appeared before her when she felt that the previous insults weren’t enough!
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 558
Hannah donned an apologetic expression and said, “Elaine Ma, actually, I’m here to apologize to you…”
She cleared her throat and continued, “Yes, I’ve always looked down on you in the past. Not only was I rude to you, but I also often badmouthed you in front of Mother. I know my mistakes now and I have deeply repented on it. So, I’m here to offer you my sincere apology.”
Then, her face flushed as she bit her lips and bowed deeply to Elaine Ma.
Elaine Ma was taken aback. She thought the lunatic was here to pick a fight with her, but unexpectedly, she had apologized and bowed to her!
She had prepared herself for the verbal attacks, but she didn’t know what to do now that her enemy was being so humble instead of drawing a sword.
When Hannah saw that Elaine Ma had kept quiet, she put up her best dramatic disguise and knelt on the floor, crying and begging. “Oh, my dear Elaine Ma, are you still angry at me? I’m very sorry! Over the past years, I had not figured out the truth. We are both sisters-in-law and outsiders in the Wilson family. We are supposed to team up and get along!”
Then, she slapped herself on the face abruptly and cried, “Elaine Ma, I was immature and short-sighted, I hope you can forgive me. Let’s be friends again, shall we?”
Elaine Ma was extremely thrilled by the abrupt change of Hannah’s attitude!
The aloof and arrogant Hannah had actually knelt before her and slapped herself! It was such a satisfying scene!
She was never so humble and soft-spoken to her before, and today, she finally felt the refreshing feeling of stepping on someone under her foot.
Hannah got rather hot under the collar when she saw the pompous smirk on Elaine Ma’s face, but she hid it under her distressed act and sighed, “Elaine Ma, to tell you the truth, I’ve finally come to my senses.
I’ve been so rude and harsh to you over the years, and I treated you so badly, but for what? I gained nothing out of it. Right now, I feel very sorry and regretful. If only I’d treated you slightly better in the past, we would not end up like this, would we?”
Then, she continued earnestly, “It is all my fault, I only hope that you can forgive me for what I committed for the sake of our relationship over the years.”
Elaine Ma was over the moon, but she said calmly, “Oh, Hannah, you’ve truly surprised me with your changes. I’m impressed! I thought you would never learn your mistakes!”
Hannah smiled bashfully and said, “Huh, see? I am and feel very sorry about it!”
For the last two decades, Elaine Ma had always dreamed that her pompous sister-in-law would be so humble to her, and her dreams had come true today!
Elaine Ma couldn’t help feeling proud and said with a smile, “Well, I’m not so petty anyway. Since you’ve realized your mistakes, I forgive you. Let’s let bygones be bygones.”
Hannah said in gratitude, “Oh, thank you! Elaine Ma, you have such a forgiving heart. Let us be best friends from now!”
Although she was saying this, inside her, she cursed the worst profanities at Elaine Ma!
‘Oh my f*cking god, Elaine Ma, you disgust me! How could I not know how you are after all those years of getting along? I’ll compliment you first, let you float on your so-called cloud nine, and then I’ll squeeze you dry!’
Elaine Ma took the BMW car key from her pocket and said, “Hannah, since we have dismissed our misunderstandings, I have to go now. I’m meeting some friends for mahjong. See ya!”
Hannah had been wondering how to invite Elaine Ma for mahjong, so when the latter said that, Hannah immediately stopped her and blurted, “Huh, are you going to play mahjong now?”
Elaine Ma nodded. “Why, yes! Why?”
“Oh, this is such a coincidence! I have a friend who is very wealthy and loves to play mahjong, but her skills are not on par. But, you know, a rich lady like her doesn’t even care about money, she purely enjoys the fun the game brings her, so she doesn’t even blink every time she loses tens of thousands of dollars.”
Then, Hannah lowered her voice and said cautiously, “It just so happens that she’s looking for a few friends to play mahjong with her every day, I wonder if you are interested. We can join forces and win big cash from her!”
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 559
A flash of light sparked through Elaine Ma’s eyes!
She had been worried that she wouldn’t be able to find an easy mark after Summer left the country, so she was thankful that Hannah had found one for her!
Besides, she assumed that the easy mark was richer than Summer because she could only win several thousand from Summer, but this lady lost ten times the money in a day!
She loved playing mahjong with people who had deep pockets but poor skills. She could make a mini fortune from the game!
If she joined forces with Hannah and agreed on some secret codes, they could win for sure!
With this thought in mind, she was overjoyed and excited!
Money meant everything to her to the point she would definitely replace her parents with money!
She was on the edge of her seat when she heard Hannah’s proposal!
Seeing the excitement in Elaine Ma’s eyes, Hannah hurriedly said in a low voice, “Let’s rehearse our little secret codes first. While we are at the table, we’ll look at each other’s gestures. We touch our nose when we want dots; we point our fingers when we want bamboo; we purse our lips when we want characters. We can work together and win big!”
Elaine Ma immediately agreed happily and said, “Okay, then. Let’s play with your friends and see!”
Hannah pasted a wide smile and said, “Deal! She is very rich though. She lives in a Thompson First villa. When can we go?”
“Let’s go right now! Take a ride in my BMW!”
When they got in the car, Hannah couldn’t help but smirk coldly as she looked at Elaine Ma’s eager expression.
In order to create a trap for Elaine Ma, she had hired two con women and spent a bit lavishly to rent the Thompson First villa. Her goal was simple. She wanted to win all of Elaine Ma’s money and property, leaving her with nothing!
Of course, Elaine Ma didn’t know that she was walking right into the trap. She was in the midst of the excitement to bully the so-called easy mark.
While Elaine Ma and Hannah were on their way to Thompson First, Charlie Wade and Jacob Wilson arrived at Jacob Wilson’s alma mater, Bell Height University.
Charlie Wade was a little surprised as he looked at the majestic gate tower carved in white marble at the entrance and the arch with the name of the school written on it—National Bell Height University.
He never imagined that his father-in-law, who always looked so useless and inept, graduated from an ivy league!
In fact, during his era, a university student was scarce compared to now, let alone one from a famous university…
Jacob Wilson sighed at Charlie Wade’s surprised gaze and asked, “Why? You don’t think that I look like someone who has gone to college, do you?”
Charlie Wade nodded blankly. “Dad, you honestly don’t look like you’ve graduated college…”
Jacob Wilson sighed again, but this time, there was a proud light on his face. “Back then, I was quite popular in school, and my academic tracks were excellent. I would have furthered my studies up north, but I didn’t want to be too far away from home.”
Charlie Wade chuckled and asked curiously, “What happened later? Why did you become a househusband after graduating from a prestigious university?”
Charlie Wade looked at Jacob Wilson and felt that it was rather interesting that he, a dignified university graduate and the second son of a wealthy family, had eventually turned into a useless man who was scolded by his wife every day.
Jacob Wilson choked for a bit and mumbled bashfully, “Later… Sigh, I don’t want to talk about it, it’s nothing but bitter tears…”
In the middle of their conversation, a man about the same age as Jacob Wilson walked out from behind the gate and rushed toward them when he saw them.
“Hey, Jacob Wilson, long time no see! Wow, look at you, so smart and charming…”
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 560
Jacob Wilson stared at the man standing in front of him for a while before he laughed and said in surprise, “Oh my God, is that you, Eric? Eric Shaw? Wow, we haven’t seen each other for about 30 years! Look at you, so smart and handsome! You must be doing very well, huh!”
Eric shook his head. “Nah, I’m nothing compared to you, Jacob Wilson. You are, what the youngsters nowadays say, the rich kid on the block…”
The Wilson family had been a noble family name back in the days.
At that moment, Lord Wilson had been in his prime, earning his first pot of gold when he plunged into the business arena for the first time, subsequently earning himself an honored reputation too. Hence, Jacob Wilson was living a good life thanks to his father. His pocket money alone might be more than half of his classmates combined.
Because of this, he had attracted the attention of Elaine Ma from another class.
Jacob Wilson chuckled bashfully at his friend’s remark, but before he could say anything, another middle-aged man and a young man walked toward them.
The middle-aged man approached them and snorted, “Huh, rich kid my *ss! You guys don’t even know his current situation because you are not staying here… Let me tell you, the so-called Wilson family is done, and our Jacob Wilson here is not doing so well himself…”
Jacob Wilson’s expression turned a little gloomy. “Hey, Aaron, what’s your point? I live my life, you don’t have to poke your nose into my business.”
Eric cleared his throat and tried to ease the mood. “Hey, you guys, look at yourselves, white hair and all. It’s been such a long time, why are you two still behaving like Tom and Jerry? You always got on each other’s nerves back in college. Why, couldn’t any of you forget about the robbing girlfriend agenda?”
Jacob Wilson sneered and said with a proud look, “Huh, why do I have to get on his nerves? He is nothing but my defeated opponent. At that time, when she was dating me, Aaron was so jealous that he drank like there was no tomorrow in the dorm every day, crying when he was drunk. I know that he was so jealous of me to the point he wanted to kill me so badly! Hahaha!”
At this moment, a lot of elderly people surrounded them. They laughed upon Jacob Wilson’s remarks and added, “Yes, that’s right! Aaron was truly infatuated back then. I still remember how he cried every day, his eyes were so swollen that he could barely see.”
“Yes! Haha! Everyone was saying what a hopeless romantic he was!”
As Charlie Wade listened to the men’s conversations, he couldn’t help feeling astonished.
Had his father-in-law and this Aaron been rivals in love?
Did this Aaron also like Elaine Ma?
Elaine Ma was clearly a fire pit, how could she possibly have attracted so many people to jump in?
Were they that blind and dumb?
Aaron was agitated by the mocking and teasing. He glared at Jacob Wilson and growled, “Hey, Jacob Wilson, don’t simply brand me with names before verification! Did you just say that I’m your defeated opponent? What a joke! Did you win? Did Matilda stay with you in the end? No, right? She dumped you and went to The States!”
Charlie Wade finally realized that they were not talking about Elaine Ma…
The group of friends laughed.
Someone patted Jacob Wilson on the shoulder and asked curiously, “Jacob Wilson, why did Matilda break up with you anyway?”
“Yes! We have been so curious about this for decades! Tell us, what happened?”
Jacob Wilson didn’t expect that his friends would turn their focus back to him. He waved his hand and said awkwardly, “Sigh, let’s not talk about the past…”
Charlie Wade caught a glimpse of heartbreak and pain in Jacob Wilson’s awkward expression.
Was there any hidden agenda in the past between his parents-in-law?
