1786 it’s indeed the bloodline of the faires family
“what do you mean? you mean … my mother had an affair? this was absolutely impossible! my mother isn’t that kind of person!”
cyril suddenly felt a little cold.
the patriarch shook his head. ” i’m not saying that joanna cheated on me. after she signed the contract with me, she has fulfilled her duty as the wife of the patriarch. i’m very grateful to her for that. however, she was pregnant with you before we got married. she agreed to sign the contract with me because she wanted to find a father for her child as soon as possible, and i’m the most suitable person. ”
“okay, let’s say what you said is true. my mother really got pregnant before marriage. then why did you agree to marry her? the patriarch of the faires family likes to raise other people’s children that much?” cyril sneered.
” that’s because … ” faires paused for two seconds before he said in a deep voice, ” “your biological father is none other than my elder brother who died young! although you’re not my son, you’re indeed my nephew, and you have the blood of the faires family!”
cyril’s eyes widened in shock. ” what did you say?! i’m … i’m …”
patriarch fields organized his thoughts and continued.
“you should know that i wasn’t the first heir of the family back then. i still had an elder brother above me. big brother was born to be a leader, and he was better than others in everything he did. i’ve always admired big brother since i was young, and i felt that as long as big brother was around, i would just follow him to eat and wait for death. i never thought that i would become the clan leader one day.”
” however, when i was twenty-five years old, bad news suddenly came. big brother passed away in a plane crash, and even his bones were not found … ”
at this point, the patriarch suddenly stopped, as if he had recalled some painful memories, and his brows furrowed.
a strange feeling also welled up in cyril’s heart, but he didn’t urge her to hurry up.
the clan leader took a deep breath and continued, ” ” because of my big brother’s sudden death, i, a second-generation heir who usually muddled along, was suddenly pushed to the position of the family’s successor. those who had experienced that period of time all knew how chaotic the situation in the family was at that time. ”
” just when i was in a terrible fix and didn’t know where to start, joanna suddenly came to me one day and told me that she wanted to get married to me. after the marriage, her family would fully support me and help me secure my position as the patriarch. ”
“at that time, i also felt that it was incredible. it was like a big meat pie that fell from the sky and just happened to hit me. however, joanna told me that she … was pregnant with my big brother’s child, but her father and big brother kept forcing her to go on blind dates and get married. if they knew that she was pregnant, they would probably make her abort the child!”
“the best possibility is to give the child to the faires family to raise after giving birth. however, she might not be able to see her child more than a few times in her life, let alone grow up with the love crystal of her beloved man. ”
“she couldn’t accept either of the two situations, so she thought of me. as the uncle of her child, i am the best person for this deal. besides, i do need joanna’s help. this is a win-win situation for us.”
” of course i won’t reject you. so, we’ll get married in a month … ”
patriarch fields ‘tone became more and more solemn as he recalled the past. finally, he sighed deeply.
