“Son! Why are you suddenly thinking of calling Dad?”
Jake instantly beamed with joy, and his tone was so cordial that it was a completely different person from Su Ri’s cold and arrogant appearance.
Joseph’s long eyelashes fluttered slightly.
In his impression, this man had never talked to him like a father and son like this. He had never even called him “son”.
It was only when he faced his big brother that he truly looked like a loving father. As expected, in this man’s heart, only Aubree was considered his lover, and his big brother was his son.
It was really ironic, but he had nothing to say.
“Dad, how have you been recently?” Eliseo’s low and magnetic voice came.
The voice of the young master Sawle family was very recognizable and resonated with a strong chest. Even though there was a few meters between them, Joseph could still hear it clearly.
“It’s good, it’s good. What about you, son? How is your recovering in Nialzuct? Is everything going well? Hve you relapsed recently?” Jake flew to Nialzuct last year to visit his eldest son. This year, he was too busy, sò he did not have time to spare.
“I am fine, please rest assured.”
Eliseo paused and asked with concern, “I heard that Joseph was injured and hospitalized. How is it? Is it serious?” Joseph frowned slightly.
It was not that he was against his eldest brother’s concern, but he did not expect that his eldest brother, who had not returned to Medo for ten years and was far away in a foreign country, would actually know about his recent situation. Jake: “Joseph just had a big operation and was unconscious for a few days. Now he woke up.”
Eliseo: “Are you visiting Joseph in the hospital?”
“Yes, your grandfather and I are in ward.”
“Please pass the phone to Joseph. I want to talk to him.”
“Your big brother wants to talk to you.” Jake answered and walked over to pass the phone to Joseph.
“Brother.” Joseph hesitantly took the phone and leaned it close to his ear.
“Joseph, I was very anxious when I heard that you were seriously injured. I even wanted to fly back to see you, but…” Eliseo sounded so concerned.
“Big brother, I’m fine. Your body isn’t suitable for a long flight, so you don’t need to do this for me.”
“I’m fine. There are no problems now. Don’t worry.” Joseph smiled and comforted him.
“Your surgery was done by Thorp family, right?”
“Yes.” The man was secretly surprised.
“I know that Miss Thorp is my sister-in-law. You two are divorced this year, but I didn’t expect her to ignore the willing to operate on you. Miss Thorp is really a generous person and has a good heart.”
Although you can’t be husband and wife, Miss Thorp has such a noble character and is kind. You should still maintain a friendly relationship with her. “Eliseo’s voice revealed a hint of regret.
Joseph pursed his thin lips tightly.
His big brother was Nialzuct, but he knew everything that happened around him like the back of his hand.
“Big brother, it’s all my fault that Chloe and I have gotten to where we are today. It’s all my fault that I have eyes but failed to see. It’s all my own fault. I owe her too much.”
“But I have already made up my mind to pursue Chloe again. Even if I have to spend the rest of my life, I will still be able to get her back.” Joseph clenched his fists tightly, his starry eyes turning red.
I, Joseph’s wife, was Chloe in the past. In the future, I can only be Chloe.
Jake was stunned!
It seemed that this son of his was determined to throw his life away and get entangled with that girl, Thorp family.
Although he could not deny that Chloe was far more outstanding than many women in this world, she was still a woman after all. Was it worth it to make his life a mess for a woman
“Good boul Good boy!” Rory was so excited that he patted Joseph on the shoulder and almost made him vomit.
The other side of the line was silent for a moment, then a chuckle was suddenly heard and encouraged, “Well, it’s good that you have such a thought. Big brother wishes you and Miss Thorp to be together again.”
“Thank you, big brother.” Joseph responded in a low voice.
But for some reason, this sentence made him feel particularly uncomfortable.
Rory took the phone and smiled brightly and affectionately. “Eliseo! How is life abroad? I heard that the golden beach is very beautiful. When will you take grandfather there for a vacation and bask in the sun?”
“Grandpa, no matter how good it is abroad, it is not as good as home.”
“Grandpa, you are old. It is a long way to come to Nialzuct. I can’t bear to see you suffer.” Eliseo smiled gently.
Maybe, it won’t be long until I am better, and we can meet in Medo?
Joseph did not reveal anything, but his heart inexplicably tightened.
“Hahaha! Good, good! It would be even better if Eliseo could come back. Our family will be perfect!”
“But don’t force yourself too much. Grandpa knows your physical condition.” Rory sighed with concern.
“Even if you don’t come back, Grandpa won’t blame you. Grandpa can visit you often. It’s just a dozen hours, and there’s a private plane. It won’t be tiring.”
The grandfather and grandson chatted for a bit more before hanging up.
“Dad, Eliseo said he was coming back? Is that true?” Jake’s eyes lit up as he asked anxiously.
Rory’s eyes flashed. Before he could reply, Secretary Webb knocked on the door and entered.
“Mr. Sawle, Director Sawle, Miss Thorp, Mr. Anderson, and Fourth Miss are here.”
“Who? Annie is here too”
While Jake was surprised, Chloe and Vincent had already walked in.
And Vincent’s big hand was holding Annie’s small hand!
They walked in as if it was a public announcement.
Annie timidly dodged behind the man, her white face flushed red from shyness.
Chloe watched them walk all the way here, and she was a little angry, but she couldn’t say anything
They were in love with each other, and she couldn’t be an old witch who broke up the mandarin ducks.
“Vincent, you are…”
Jake stared at the two young and beautiful people. His fingers were clasped tightly, and the shock in his heart was not a joke.
“Uncle.” Vincent smiled with a flushed face.
Chloe did not spit out a mouthful of Soaring Cloud blood. She covered her chest and glared at Vincent.
In the past, Brother Anderson family had always addressed Jake as Director Sawle or Uncle Sawle. This uncle” was really too intimate in the past.
“Vincent, what do you mean by this?” All the holes on Jake’s body tightened.
Vincent took a deep breath and raised the hand that was intertwined with Annie. He revealed the draft that had been in his stomach for the entire night.
“Uncle! Annie and I are in love now. I can’t control my feelings for your daughter. My love for her is like the collapse of the sky and the collapse of the earth. The landslide…”
Chloe and Joseph both held their foreheads, “Who taught him such nonsense? Drag him out!”
“Brother Vincent… Don’t say anymore, it’s so embarrassing.” Annie couldn’t stand it anymore. She pinched his hand and blushed like a carrot.
“So I ask you to give Annie to mel Although I was not a good person in the past, I will work hard to be a good man in the future, Annie’s man alone!”
“I will treat her better than Joseph treats Miss Thorp. I swear on my life! I will give her happiness that will make all the women in the world envious for the rest of her life! I love Annie. Please allow me to date Annie on the premise of marriage!” Vincent was so nervous that Annie’s hands were red, and even her was trembling.
Chloe coldly glanced at Vincent, “You really have no future if yo, ice
as a reference.”
Joseph stared at him snappily, “Better than me treating Chloe? Even if you die of exhaustion, you can’t be better than me.”
Vincent said so many words in one breath. His expression was stiff and he spoke quickly, but his eyes were incomparably sincere.
It was obvious that he had been holding it in for a long time.
Rory smiled bitterly, “Alas, this child is so skilled that it makes one’s heart ache!”
“Cough cough… Vincent, I’m not doubting you. I’m just…”
Jake had been in the business world for thirty years. This was the first time that he was almost overwhelmed by a junior. He hurriedly calmed his mind and looked at him seriously. As a father, I naturally hope that my daughters can marry a man she loves and has a happy family.”
“But I also have some things to say. I have to say it first. There is no other meaning…”
“I know what you want to say.”
“You don’t have to say it. I already know everything about Annie. I know everything about her.”
“We have already been honest with each other. The person I want is her. There will be no one else.”
“What Stinking brat! Don’t tell me you…” Rory pointed at Vincent, trembling in fear.
“Grandfather! You misunderstood me! I never touched Annie from beginning to end. It’s not what you think. Don’t think too much about it!” Vincent waved his hands in panic.
At first, Annie was still confused, but when she said this, the girl blushed and hid in his arms.
Seeing that Annie was so dependent on Vincent, Chloe couldn’t help but raise her red lips slightly.
She was relieved.
If this man was destined to be the man that Annie would meet, then even if the whole world objected, she would still choose him without hesitation.
Just like how she blocked everything back then and chose Joseph.
Vincent’s sudden confession gave Jake a big shock, and now was not the time to talk about this, so he could only press the button.
Annie obediently walked to the bed of the illness with small steps, and blinked her clear eyes with concern, “Brother Vincent said that your head is injured. How is it? Does it still hurt?”
Joseph caressed his sister’s face and said gently, “It doesn’t hurt. It was your sister-in-law who saved me. Your sister-in-law took good care of me.”
When Vincent saw that his woman had been touched, even if they were siblings, his heart felt like it was going to explode. His face was sour.
“That’s good… that’s good…”
Annie suddenly grabbed Chloe’s hand, shook it lightly, and asked eagerly, “Sister-in-law, can you promise me to stay by his side forever? Can you always take care of him until he is discharged from the hospital?”.
“With you by his side, he will definitely be very happy, and he will be very good soon.”
Chloe’s heart trembled and she pursed her red lips.
Joseph stared at her with anticipation. Her eyes were watery, like a lonely stray dog.
The brother and sister would be miserable one by one.
“Your second brother was injured for me, so I naturally have to be responsible to the end.”
“I will always take care of him until he recovers,” Chloe said with a gentle smile.
“Wow… that’s great!” Annie clapped her little hands.
Joseph’s hanging heart slowly fell.
“Chloe, thank you.” He thanked her softly, his throat choking with sobs.
Chloe seemed indifferent, but her heart was inevitably moved.
Sawle Group had an important meeting, so Jake left first.
Ever since Chloe’s “God Lewis” vest was exposed, she had naturally become Joseph’s attending physician. Now, the heavy responsibility of Joseph’s follow-up treatment fell on her shoulders.
After she asked Joseph about some things, she sent him to the wheelchair and asked Vincent and Hospital Chief Corbet to personally take him for an examination.
Only Chloe, grandfather, and Secretary Webb were left in ward.
“Raya, your face has always been heavy. Are you hiding something in your heart?” Rory took advantage of the fact that there was no one else around to question him.
“No, it’s fine, grandpa,” Chloe said in a twinkling voice.
“Raya, you can hide it from others, but you can still hide it from grandpa?”
“Is there something wrong with Joseph’s injury?” Rory asked worriedly.
“Don’t hide it from me. You know Grandfather’s personality. Tell me the truth, even if the sky collapses, Grandfather will be able to withstand it.”
“But if you don’t tell Grandfather the truth, Grandfather won’t be able to eat or sleep well. It’s really bad for the entire person!”
Chloe’s heart was conflicted, hesitating. After hesitating for a while, she looked at Secretary Webb, “Uncle Webb, please go
out for a while.”
Secretary Webb understood and left the door.
“Child, are you saying that… Joseph has trauma?” Rory asked in a trembling voice, his heart squeezed into a ball.
“Yes, it’s all my fault, it’s all my fault grandfather.”
“I’m still not good enough, or things wouldn’t have turned out like this.” Chloe lowered his head in guilt.
“Raya, don’t blame yourself. If not for you, Joseph and I might have separated forever.”
Grandpa’s dry and rough hand covered the back of her hand as he looked at her with a serious expression, “But there is one thing that I need you to promise me.”
“You must bury the secret of Joseph’s side effects forever in my heart. The fewer people who know about this matter, the better.”
“At present, only Hospital Chief Corbet and I know about Mr. Sawle’s situation. Grandfather, don’t worry. Hospital Chief Corbet and Thave a close relationship. He is someone who can be trusted. He will never tell anyone.”
Chloe furrowed her brows and asked in a low voice, “However, grandfather, when Mr. Sawle’s side effects flared up, no one else has any solutions except for taking a calming medicine. I also don’t know when he will suddenly act up.”
Paper can’t wrap fire, what if…
“No matter how long we hide it, it’s better. At the very least… we have to wait for the overall situation to be decided. We have to wait until Joseph officially becomes the heir and inherits most of Sawle Group’s shares and assets.”
“Sawle Group’s future heir can only be Joseph, not someone else.” Rory clenched his fists.
“If his illness was pinched by someone with evil intentions, not to mention the heir, his position as the president might not be guaranteed!”
Chloe was greatly confused. After pondering for a while, she asked tentatively, “Grandfather, logically speaking, if there is no accident, the eldest son should inherit the family business. In other words, Sawle Group’s heir should be Mr. Sawle’s eldest brother.”
“But I heard that Elder Master is in a poor health and has been recuperating abroad. I thought that you chose Mr. Sawle as the heir because his brother is not in good health.
“But I just heard what you said… It doesn’t seem to be the case. What is the reason that you have to let Mr. Sawle be the heir?”
Rory’s pupils trembled and his Adam’s apple rolled with difficulty. He closed his mouth and said nothing.
