“Yes! This is how I show my love for her.” Old Mr. Silas spoke confidently, “I want her to marry you, have her raise your kids, and have her become the most distinguished woman in this country… What’s wrong if I do that?” “You’re obviously trying to fulfil your own dream.” Nathaniel Cooper retorted in a deep voice. “You’ve never thought about what she wants. Don’t you know what kind of life can make her happy?” “Nathaniel, what do you know?” Old Mr. Silas stomped his crutch down and said angrily. “Don’t think that you know everything just because you’re the President. Let me tell you, when I fought the war with your grandfather and the others those years, you will never know our struggles.” Nathaniel smirked and said coldly, “Since you have made it clear, I will tell you this honestly. I will save Serene, and I will never let anything happen to her.” “You will never let anything happen to her? Do you want to bet on that with your President status?” Old Mr. Silas sneered. “Would you dare to, Nathaniel?” “Old Master, the outside world has changed a long time ago… The world is far from the era when you were bossing around the country as a king.” Nathaniel calmly told him the truth. “Now, I am in charge of this country. If I can’t even save a person, then I, as the President, will not be worthy of this title anymore.” After all, Old Mr. Silas was the only relative Serene had left. Nathaniel didn’t want to confront him head-on and was willing to take a step back first. However, Old Mr. Silas didn’t want to compromise and insisted on forcing him to take action. Well, then he couldn’t blame Nathaniel for being ruthless anymore. Old Mr. Silas chuckled, “So you can do whatever you want just because you’re in charge of this country? You can disregard people’s lives?” “Before I came here, I had already sent people to compile evidence of Elijah’s crimes.” Nathaniel raised his hand and looked at the time, then he added, “If I give the order, the news about him will immediately spread all over the world, and I am afraid that it will damage the Silas family’s reputation. Old Master, please consider if your family’s reputation is more important, or someone else’s?” “Are you threatening me?” Old Mr. Silas stamped his walking stick down. He was so angry that he glared at him. “Nathaniel, I’ll put it out there first, if you won’t marry Serene, I’d rather watch her die.” “Why are you so stubborn? Since you love her so much, why don’t you let her live the life she wants with her beloved one? Isn’t that better?” Nathaniel tried to understand what Old Mr. Silas was thinking about, but he didn’t expect that he was so stubborn and wouldn’t listen to another’s advice. “Beloved one? Love?” Old Mr. Silas sneered, Nathaniel, you are the President of the country, don’t tell me that you’re that naive to believe in true love?” “Isn’t there?” Nathaniel asked. He wasn’t naive, but some people did show him that true love existed. Wasn’t Karen Joy’s parents the best example that he knew of? The two of them understood each other and cared about each other well. One could tell what the other was thinking with just one look. These small and warm details were the love that Nathaniel believed in Old Mr. Silas looked at Nathaniel thoroughly. “I’m really surprised to hear such words from a person who can even harm his own brother.” Nathaniel smiled and kept quiet. He had never said that he was a kind person. He would never show mercy when he had to deal with his enemies. Brother? Nathaniel had never thought that the person who plotted against him again and again and even almost killed him, was his own brother. They framed him and fortunately, he escaped from death. He seized the opportunity to fight back. If he didn’t kill them all at once, was he going to leave an opportunity for them to frame him again? “Anyway, I can’t live too long. I don’t want Serene to live alone in this world without any support. One day, she will understand that love means nothing. Only money and status can give her live a better life.” Old Mr. Silas suddenly commented It didn’t matter if others accused him of wanting to fulfil his dream or that he was selfish, he just wanted the best for his granddaughter. Serene was the descendant of the Silas family and the daughter of his favorite youngest son. After the unexpected death of his son and daughter-in-law, he raised her since young. His love for her was deeper than any other child in the Silas family. He could even sacrifice the life of another for her happiness. “Since you’ve made up your mind, Old Master, there’s no need for us to continue the discussion anymore.” Nathaniel nodded politely at Old Mr. Silas. “I’ll have to go.” As soon as he turned around, he saw Serene standing behind them. She was originally detained elsewhere. She looked at Old Master Silas with tears in her eyes. Nathaniel was a little surprised. “Serene, you…” Old Mr. Silas also looked back. When he saw Serene standing in front of him, his face appeared very upset. “Serene, when did you arrive here?” “Grandpa..” Serene clenched her fists and she wanted to say something. After hesitating for a long time, she asked, “Was it really you?” “Serene, what are you talking about? I don’t understand.” Old Mr. Silas was still trying to deceive her. Maybe Serene hadn’t heard their entire conversation. “Grandpa, you ordered your men to kill my child, right?” He acted like he was confused, but Serene asked clearly Serene asked in a very light tone, and her tone was still as gentle as usual. If you didn’t see the tears all over her face, you couldn’t tell from her tone that she was asking such a serious question. Seeing that the matter had been revealed, Old Mr. Silas let out a long sigh and said, “I did this for your own good.” “For my own good? To let someone kill the child in my womb for my own good? To break up the relationship between me and the person I like for my good? Hahaha.” Serene laughed crazily. “You say that it’s for my own good everyday, for my own good… But have you ever really considered my feelings?” “Serene, stop it! You should go now. You don’t have the right to speak here.” The Old Master Silas used his role as the head of the family and said harshly. “Grandpa, I’ll ask you for the last time. Have you ever thought about me? Even just a second.” Serene pursed her lips and waited for Old Master Silas’ answer. Old Master Silas didn’t say anything. His silence was like a huge hammer that completely shattered the warmth in Serene’s heart. “Grandpa, thank you for raising me all these years.” She raised her lips slightly and showed a sad yet beautiful smile. Old Master Silas was speechless. Before Old Master Silas could say say anything, Serene slammed her head against the wall next to her. She did it so quickly that when Nathaniel noticed what she wanted to do, she had already hit the wall. Warm blood flowed down her forehead like a blooming poppy.
