The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 621
Christopher was trembling with anger at Jacob Wilson’s deliberate sarcasm!
Indeed, he occasionally saw such news on virtual news portals. In fact, he admitted that he had even imagined such a scene before. He imagined that one day when he was super rich and bumped into a young and beautiful girl who told him that she didn’t want to work anymore, he would just send her an address and let her come to him…
Of course, it was nothing but a figment of his imagination. He had never had the courage nor the ability to turn it into a reality.
However, when Jacob Wilson talked about his wife like that, for some reason, a very vivid and realistic picture showed up in his mind!
In the imaginative picture, there was a young man leaning against his wife’s embrace and calling her name sweetly…
Christopher was extremely agitated, wondering how many times his wife had cheated on him. He stomped furiously and cursed, “Jacob Wilson, don’t you dare mock my wife like that! Your wife isn’t any better! You should be thankful that you are poor, otherwise, Elaine Ma would have ten toyboys under her paycheck!”
At this moment, Jacob Wilson’s bedroom door opened wide. Elaine Ma barged out rapidly, pointing to Christopher’s nose and cursing, “You b*stard! Your wife ran away, why did you come to my house and cause a scene? How dare you insult me? Just look at yourself, you pathetic old coot!”
When Elaine Ma finally revealed herself, Christopher asked sharply, “Elaine Ma! Have you seen Hannah or not?!”
“I told you that I haven’t seen her! You are so irritating! I told you that Hannah eloped with her toyboy, taking all your money with her! It’s up to you if you want to believe me or not!”
“You said she cheated on me with a toyboy, do you have any proof?”
“Huh, your wife disappeared along with the money, what proof do you want? If you want the proof so badly, just go and look for it yourself! Why do you come here?”
Christopher was so angry that his heart nearly burst out of his chest. Lady Wilson said coldly, “That’s enough, let’s go home now! Stop embarrassing yourself!”
Christopher pointed to Elaine Ma with his ghastly glare and exclaimed, “Vixen, just you wait and see! I’ll f*cking come at you!”
Elaine Ma spit on him and shouted, “Come as you please, but you’re about to go bankrupt that you can’t even afford a decent meal! You’ll starve to death sooner or later, you b*stard!”
Then, Elaine Ma slammed the door directly at them.
Christopher was extremely agitated, but he didn’t dare to confront them again for fear that Charlie Wade would slap him again, so he could only leave with Lady Wilson in a dingy manner.
When they were at the gate, Lady Wilson warned Christopher in an utterly cold voice, “Three days—find Hannah or bring me the money. If you fail, you don’t have to come home anymore!”
Then, she huffed agitatedly and left.
Christopher was devastated.
The world was so big, searching for Hannah would be like finding a needle in the haystack!
He had no other way but to go to Hannah’s family first.
After Christopher was gone, Elaine Ma’s depressed feeling was lifted slightly.
Jacob Wilson had no clue at all what happened today, he thought that the story about how Hannah ran away with the money was real, so he said in a gloating grin, “Haha! No man is wise all the time! I bet Chris never would have guessed that Hannah would do this to him! This is so funny! Hahahaha!”
Charlie Wade glanced at Elaine Ma quietly, impressed by his mother-in-law’s swift thinking. She denied seeing Hannah till the end and had even accused Hannah of eloping with a toyboy. It only took her a small effort to divert Christopher’s attention to a completely different direction.
Elaine Ma, on the other hand, glared at Charlie Wade bitterly and hoped that she could eat him up with her glare!
It was all because of this loser that Linda and Hannah had donated all her money. Now that she had lost all the family’s savings, she wondered how she was going to hide it from Jacob Wilson!
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 622
At this moment, the gleeful Jacob Wilson said, “Oh yes, dear, give me twenty grand. I want to have a get-together tomorrow.”
“A get-together?” Elaine Ma asked nervously, “Why do you need twenty grand for a get-together?! Did you invite the president?”
“I joined the Aurous Calligraphy and Painting Association, I’ve told you that, remember? Now, there’s a vacancy for the executive director of the association and I want it! So, I’d like to invite the chairman and other directors to dinner to enhance our relationship.”
Then, he added with a smug look, “If I’m elected as one of the executive directors, I’ll be popular in the antique social group in the city!”
Elaine Ma shouted angrily, “Are you crazy? Why do you need twenty grand for dinner? Do you really think we own a money printer at home? No, I don’t allow you to!”
Jacob Wilson hurriedly said, “Oh, dear, I just want to climb the ladder one step at a time! Once I become the director, I will have more opportunities to get in touch with the rare and precious antiques and there will be chances for me to grab treasures at bargain prices! You’ve seen how good I am at this, I’ve made hundreds of thousands with the same tactic!”
Elaine Ma was feeling guilty about the money, but she pretended an enraged tone and said, “But still, you can’t spend twenty grand on a dinner banquet! Do you think our money grows on trees?”
Jacob Wilson was annoyed. “With every penny I spend, I’ll earn it back in the future! Or you just consider this as a loan, huh? Is that okay?”
Elaine Ma condemned contemptuously, “Hah, do you think I don’t know how lousy you actually are? So what if you become a director, you still can’t earn peanuts! I think you’re becoming more and more like Charlie Wade—you’re also turning into a big liar who deceives people all day long!”
“Argh, why do you look down on me so much?”
“Yeah, I look down on you, so what? You want money, don’t you? Look at my lips. No!”
Then, she turned and barged into her room, pretending to be angry.
Jacob Wilson was utterly confused and irritated.
What was wrong with that woman? Why couldn’t she give him the money? Part of the money was his too!
He was about to go to the room to begin another argument when Charlie Wade stopped him and said with a smile, “Dad, if Mom doesn’t want to give you the money, you know whatever you do would be useless.”
Jacob Wilson huffed, annoyed, “But I’ve already told them that I want to invite them for a get-together! I only have a thousand plus in my pocket, it isn’t enough!”
Then, he added, “The president said that there is a great chance I’ll be appointed as the director. It all depends on my performance!”
Charlie Wade sighed quietly.
He was fully aware of how miserable his father-in-law was in terms of verifying antiquities. He was the purest idiot of them all who had been scammed so many times and lost a lot of money. The only time he had earned money from trading antiques was from Zachary.
He heard that Zachary was avoiding Jacob Wilson at all costs, ignoring his phone calls and messages. He would even ditch his shop and escape when he bumped into Jacob Wilson in Antique Street.
Jacob Wilson was in the association with a sole purpose—to make up the number.
But of course, he wouldn’t say such things out loud. Instead, he said, “Dad, I still have some pocket money, I’ll transfer twenty grand to you right away.”
Jacob Wilson was delighted. “Oh, my dear son-in-law, you’re the best! Thank you! You’ve done me a great favor!”
Charlie Wade sighed as he transferred the money and said, “Alright, Claire Wilson Wilson is coming back soon, I’ll start making dinner.”
Jacob Wilson smiled gleefully when he received the money and said in a coy tone, “My dear son-in-law, let me help you!”
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 623
As Charlie Wade was preparing dinner, Donald and his son, Sean, also left the Moore family mansion and drove to The Heaven Springs.
Donald has invited some of the more powerful and prestigious people in Aurouss Hilll to attend the banquet dinner that he would be hosting at The Heaven Springs tonight. On one hand, he wanted to find more clues relating to his youngest son, Kian’s sudden illness, and on the other hand, he wanted to lay down a little foundation for the Webb family in Aurouss Hilll.
Although the Webb family was the top family in the South Region, this did not mean that they had sufficient control and power over the entire South Region.
The Webb family’s base camp was in Sudbury, and this meant that they had extraordinary control and power in the Sudbury area. However, since the Moore family’s base camp was in Aurouss Hilll, this meant that the Webb family’s influence and power in Aurouss Hilll were relatively worse than the Moore family.
As these wealthy and powerful families in the South Region each had their own spheres of influence, each and every one of them maintained a tacit understanding and respect for each other. No one would try to expand their own strength or power within the sphere of influence of another prestigious family.
Donald was not trying to gain more influence in Aurouss Hilll, but the point was that his eldest son, Sean, really wanted to marry Jasmine from the Moore family. In order to achieve this goal, Sean would have to remain in Aurouss Hilll for a long time in the near future. Therefore, Donald wanted to lay the foundation for his son in Aurouss Hilll. He planned to greet all the big families in Aurouss Hilll in advance so that it would be more convenient for Sean to stay around in Aurouss Hilll in the future.
Sean had felt a little more irritated than usual over the past two days. First of all, it was because Lord Mooore had directly refused and turned down the marriage proposal offered by Donald the last time he had brought it up. This made Sean feel very awkward and embarrassed.
Also, Sean felt even more troubled because of Jasmine’s attitude.
Both Sean and his father had been living in the Moore family mansion for the past few days. However, during their stay here, Sean felt as though Jasmine would always leave the house early in the morning, and she would only come back home late at night, every single day!
Sean had heard Reuben saying that Jasmine used to eat breakfast at home before she left the house in the morning, and she would then try to come home early in the evening to accompany her grandfather for dinner.
However, for the past few days, Jasmine did not even have breakfast at home before she left the house. She would always head toward her car and drive out of the house as soon as she left her bedroom in the morning.
Jasmine would even have dinner outside nowadays before coming home very late at night. After that, she would go back directly into her own bedroom as soon as she came home. She basically did not give Sean a chance to meet her at all.
This made Sean feel very depressed.
He really did not expect Jasmine to somehow look down on him. Moreover, he felt as though Jasmine was very unwilling to marry him. Why?!
When they were in the car, Donald could immediately tell that his son was not in the right mood and condition. Therefore, he said, “Son, you have to have more patience no matter what you do. You might not be able to find another girl like Jasmine in the entire South Region. If you really want to win her over so you can marry her, you have to be willing to put in some energy and effort.”
Sean started to lose his temper as he said, “Dad, you know that there will not be a second young man in the whole of the South Region who would be better than me, right? Why can’t she just feel blessed and appreciate her good fortune since I am interested in her and want to marry her?”
Donald replied lightly, “You probably do not understand this, but girls from prestigious families are always more popular compared to young men from any prestigious family.”
After that, Donald continued speaking. “A woman like Jasmine would definitely be sought after, even by many of the young men from the most prestigious and powerful families in Eastcliff. All of them would be vying to marry her. This is because Jasmine is not only very beautiful and capable, but her family’s strength and power are also very admirable. She is very all-rounded and would be able to save her future husband a lot of face when they get married in the future. Jasmine would not only be able to play a very important role in the family that she marries into, but she could also bring a very generous dowry with her.”
“However, it would be extremely difficult if you want to marry a girl from the most powerful and prestigious family in Eastcliff. This is because they are not only looking and judging your individual personality and abilities, but they would also be judging the entire strength and wealth of the entire Webb family.”
“In a layman’s term, in the upper-class society, if a woman has a comprehensive strength of seventy points, she would be able to marry a man that has a comprehensive strength of eighty points. However, a man with the comprehensive strength of seventy points would hardly be able to marry a woman with the comprehensive strength of seventy points.”
Sean was a little agitated and blurted out immediately, “Do you mean to say that I am the one who will be climbing up the social ladder if I have the benefit of marrying Jasmine?”
Donald replied, “Even though you might not want to hear this, it is nothing more than the truth. Jasmine will definitely be able to find a better man than you, but it will be much more difficult for you to ever find a better woman than Jasmine.”
Sean was stunned for a moment, feeling a little unconvinced. However, after putting some thought into it, he felt that his father was right.
Out of all the women he had ever met, Jasmine was indeed the woman with the highest score.
As for the daughters of those prestigious and top families in Eastcliff, even if they would be relatively wealthier compared to the Moore family, it would be very difficult for him to find anyone with Jasmine’s appearance and temperament.
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 624
Besides that, even if the girls admired him or were interested in him, their family might not necessarily be able to accept him into their families.
Donald sighed before he said, “I received news from home that your younger brother’s condition is not very optimistic now.”
“What’s wrong?” Sean hurriedly asked. “Did his condition deteriorate any further?”
“No, that did not happen.” Donald continued speaking, “His illness is the same as it was before. He still has to eat shit every hour. However, it seems as though your brother’s emotional and mental condition is in very bad shape. In the past, he would feel like committing suicide if he did not get to eat shit every hour. However, now, whenever he has finished eating shit and regained his consciousness, he would feel like committing suicide. He said that it is too painful and pointless for him to continue living like this.”
Donald could only sigh after he was done speaking. He really did not know who Kian had offended and why he would end up the way he was now.
Sean gritted his teeth as he said, “If I were to catch the man who harmed my brother and made him this way, I will definitely take his life!”
Even though Sean was saying this, what he desired the most was not to avenge or look for a cure for his younger brother. What Sean wanted the most at this time was to win Jasmine over.
In fact, Sean did not really care about his younger brother’s situation.
On the contrary, he felt as though it would be best for him if his brother continued to remain in this condition and state of mind.
This was because he would not need to worry about having an absolute competitor to inherit the family fortune in the future.
If Kian continued to remain this way and no cure was found, Kian would never be able to inherit any family assets or property in his life. He would only end up getting locked up in the house by his family just so they could sustain and keep him alive.
That way, Sean would have the opportunity to inherit the Webb family fortune all by himself.
Donald sighed again as he said, “Sean, you don’t have to worry about your brother’s affairs. I will investigate and look into this matter myself. You should focus on pursuing Jasmine with all your heart and might. You have to make sure that you win Jasmine over. Do you understand?”
Sean hurriedly nodded. “I understand, Dad!”
Donald hummed before he said, “I set something up in The Heaven Springs today. The people I have invited to attend the banquet dinner tonight are the head of the White family, the Quinton family, the Lloyd family, the Zimmerman family, and the Kline family. These families have been rooted in Aurouss Hilll for many years, and each of these families has their own merits, strengths, connections, and resources.”
“I also invited the owner of The Heaven Springs, Don Albertt, to join us for dinner tonight. He is the mobster boss of the underground world in Aurouss Hilll. Even though he may appear scary and not have a prestigious identity, he knows about almost everything that is going on in Aurouss Hilll. Most of the things in Aurouss Hilll will not be able to escape his eyes. Therefore, I believe that as long as you form a close connection to these people tonight, it will definitely be of great use to you in your pursuit of Jasmine in the future.”
Sean only knew about the White family and the Quinton family, and he knew that the head of these two households was none other than Zeke White and Graham Quinton. He knew of their families’ wealth and power, but he did not know much about the other families that his father had just mentioned. Therefore, he quickly asked, “Dad, aside from the White family and the Quinton family, what are the origins of the Lloyd, Zimmerman, and Kline family?”
Donald laughed before he replied, “The Zimmerman family and the Kline family are ordinary families who gained their wealth and influence through real estate development. There is nothing extraordinary about them, but the Lloyd family is a little more interesting. Their family runs a financial company, and most of what they are doing is actually illegal. In fact, they could be categorized as a form of a loan shark. They have just emerged over the past two years and have also supported a large number of gangsters and thugs who are in the debt collection field.”
Sean was very surprised and asked, “Does that mean that he is similar in nature to Don Albertt then?”
“Yes, they are similar in nature.” Donald nodded before he continued speaking, “However, the Lloyd family’s strength cannot be compared to Don Albertt. Don Albertt has many men under his control in the whole of Aurouss Hilll. The number of men working for Don Albertt is dozens of times more than Cain Lloyd’s collection team. Therefore, even though Cain hates Don Albertt to the core, he does not dare to do anything to him at all.”
“Cain hates Don Albertt?” Sean asked in surprise. “Did something happen between both of them?”
Donald smiled before he said, “It seems as though there was a big conflict between them. Cain has an only child named Marcus. It seems that some time ago, Marcus seriously offended Don Albertt. In order to punish Marcus for his actions, Don Albertt carved two words directly onto Marcus’s forehead.”
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 625
”Oh, my God!”
Sean could not stop himself from exclaiming out loud when he heard this. “Don Albertt actually used a knife to carve the words ‘pathetic jerk’ on Cain’s son’s forehead?! You would not be exaggerating if you said that there was a deep hatred between them!”
“Yes.” Donald smiled slightly before he said, “I guess Cain and his son can only dream of killing Don Albertt and getting rid of him in their dreams!”
When he heard his father’s words, Sean could not help but ask, “Dad, since you know that there is an enmity between Cain and Don Albertt, why did you still invite Cain to come for the banquet dinner tonight?”
Donald smiled again as he said, “Don’t you think that this is an opportunity for us to make use of Cain? He is nothing but a stray dog who wants to bite but does not dare to open his mouth. What he is currently lacking is a host that will back him up and support him so that he can open his mouth and bite with confidence in the future.”
At this time, Sean replied, “Dad, if you want to take advantage of this situation and make use of Cain, why did you still arrange for the banquet dinner to be held at The Heaven Springs? Since Cain and Don Albertt cannot get along at all, wouldn’t that be making things difficult for yourself?”
Donald looked at Sean with a deep expression in his eyes as he said, “Cain and Don Albertt are both dogs. The only difference is that Cain is just a stray dog without an owner, but Don Albertt is a dog with the backup and support of the Moore family.”
Sean nodded before he asked, “What, then? What are you trying to get out of this, dad?”
Donald replied, “If you intend to marry Jasmine in the future, you have to show your power and influence in Aurouss Hilll. Even though these prestigious and powerful families in Aurouss Hilll are all very polite and respectful toward us, they do not regard us as masters. On the other hand, they regard the Moore family as the master in Aurouss Hilll. Therefore, we will have to develop our own forces and power in Aurouss Hilll.”
After that, Donald continued speaking. “There are two kinds of forces in this world. First is the public force, and secondly, the underground forces. The public forces are those prestigious families who do serious and decent business with the exception of the Lloyd family and Don Albertt who are part of the underground forces. If we cannot subdue Don Albertt, then, we should train and raise a dog who will be able to challenge and fight against Don Albertt instead. In my opinion, the Lloyd family is best suited to take on that role.”
Donald looked at Sean before he gave him a serious warning. “If you want to inherit and take over the Webb family in the future, you have to be skilled in planning your strategies. Do you know the reason why I invited Cain to come for the banquet dinner at The Heaven Springs tonight?”
“First of all, I want Cain to feel pleasantly surprised. He is nothing but a stray dog with no backup or owner, but he was actually given the opportunity to have dinner with someone as powerful as me.”
“On the other hand, I also want to make Cain feel very humiliated. How? As a stray dog without an owner, Cain would have to suffer and endure the humiliation of swallowing his anger when facing his mortal enemy, Don Albertt. His desire for revenge will only be doubled when he suffers even more humiliation. At that time, I will be merciful and offer Cain an opportunity to become my dog. That will give him a chance to exact revenge on Don Albertt. He will definitely be very grateful toward me, and he will go all out and give everything he has to take Don Albertt down.”
“As Don Albertt is the mobster boss of the underground world, the underground world will eventually be dominated by the Webb family when he falls from his throne. Do you understand what I am planning to do now?”
Sean came to a sudden realization when he heard his father’s explanation!
He could not help but say in excitement, “Dad, I think that your plan is absolutely wonderful! In that case, Cain will surely treat you and the Webb family as his savior and benefactor! That way, the Lloyd family can become the vanguard that will pave the way for the Webb family when we want to enter Aurouss Hilll in the future.”
Donald replied, “That’s right. This is the only way for Aurouss Hilll to become an indestructible hinterland for the Webb family.”
Sean truly admired his father’s strategy and could only sigh as he said, “I do not know when I can ever have at least one-tenth of your ability, Dad…”
Donald smiled slightly before he said, “Your current behavior and personality are already very similar to how I was during my younger days. All you have to do now is to accumulate more experience, precipitate more, think everything through slowly, and be patient and not impulsive when figuring things out!”
After listening to his father’s words, Sean said, “Dad, I understand now!”
“Okay.” Donald nodded in satisfaction before he said, “Let’s get back to the topic about Jasmine. You have to be steady and patient, like an eagle that is keeping watch on its prey. Make sure that you win Jasmine over and bring her into the Webb family!”
Sean replied respectfully, “I got it, Dad! I will definitely live up to your expectations!”
As soon as his voice fell, both of them had already arrived at the entrance of The Heaven Springs.
