Chapter 1142 The Wavering Of Your Mind
Helma lost all sense of rationality after getting slapped by Geert. Father? Is he my father? I hate Natalie so much that it is engraved in my bones, but he still lusts after her and slapped me just because I tore her photo! After stealing my beloved, is Natalie going to steal my father away from me too?
“Father, did you just slap me because of that stupid photo?” “It has nothing to do with the photo.” Geert pointed at her and snapped, “You know nothing, so you have no right to question me! Remember, no matter how capable you are, I’m still your father. You have to comply with my orders!”
Helma covered her swollen cheek and snorted out loud. She then spun on her heels and stormed out of Geert’s study. Geert watched as his daughter left in a haste. Instead of going after her, he crouched down and furrowed his brows.
Patiently, he picked up the remains of the photo and pieced them together. He managed to piece the shreds into a somewhat complete photo.
There were a thousand different emotions flashing across his face, some of which were greed, adoration, and hatred. At the Bowers residence, Emma was taking care of the kids who were having dinner.
Samuel was talking to Steven, who was in Chanaea, on a video call in his study.
After talking about work, they started chatting about daily life. Steven was worried about Samuel’s health. “Sam, are you sure you’ve recovered completely?”
“Yeah.” Samuel pursed his lips and chuckled. “You’re just like Natalie. Why do you think I’d lie to you?”
“Well, you did that before. You rarely lie but came up with that previously. That traumatized me for life,” Steven complained.
He couldn’t help but grow emotional whenever he recalled Samuel putting on a show.
“Natalie is really forgiving. If I were in her shoes, I would definitely pursue the matter even after treating your condition.”
“Of course. No one can be as generous as Nat,” came Samuel’s reply. He was belittling Steven and bragging about Natalie at the same time.
Knowing Samuel was showing off, Steven played along and nodded. “Yes, you’re right. No one is as generous as Natalie!”
“Then when are you going to get me a sister-in-law?”
Suddenly, Steven’s face froze on the screen.
It took him a while to regain his composure. He pretended to be oblivious as he asked, “Sister-in-law? What are you talking about?”
“Steven, you know who I’m talking about.”
“Sam, how would you know when I don’t?” Steven chuckled dryly and turned away from the computer screen.
Samuel knew Steven was trying to avoid the topic, but he wasn’t about to give up this soon. “I’m talking about Luna, Luna Garcia. Previously, I asked her to act with me, so it was natural for you to hesitate. Now that you know the truth, what are you resisting?”
Samuel was right. Steven was resisting.
He had thought that Luna had destroyed the relationship between Samuel and Natalie and had spoken harshly against her.
Upon learning the truth, he recalled how ungentlemanly he had been toward Luna and blamed himself for not acting like a man.
“Man up, will you?” Samuel snapped. “Why are you hesitating? I don’t care whether you love her or not, but please be more decisive. Luna and I were only putting on an act, and our act ended the moment the lie was exposed. Steven, Luna is a great person. If you want to pursue her, hurry up. She can’t handle the wavering of your mind.”
