“I thought you’d at least help me out since we’re brothers…” Huo Yunshen said with a saddened tone.
Brothers? Huo Jingtang smirked in his head. I’ve never once thought of you as my own brother!
“You’re just too naïve!” Huo Jingtang shouted. “We were born to be rivals! It’s either you or me who’ll take over the whole family.”
Huo Jingtang walked to Huo Yunshen’s side and patted him on his shoulder.
“I’ll take good care of our family and the company,” Huo Jingtang said, as if trying to comfort Huo Yunshen. “I’ll prove to the world that you’re no better than me. And you don’t have to worry about the rest of your life, just sign this paper and I’ll make sure you get to enjoy a quiet life.”
There was another meaning behind Huo Jingtang’s final sentence. He meant that if Huo Yunshen did not sign the paper, he would make Huo Yunshen’s remaining life miserable.
Huo Jingtang would not take Huo Yunshen’s life away, but he would make sure that Huo Yunshen lived a painful life.
“Take your time to consider my offer,” Huo Jingtang said as he was not in a hurry for Huo Yunshen to sign it. “Send me the paper when you’ve signed it. I’ll take my leave.”
Huo Jingtang turned and put on his shoe.
“I’ve always wanted to ask you something,” Huo Yunshen suddenly said just as Huo Jingtang was about to step outside. “Were you involved in the accident that cost me my legs five years ago?”
Huo Jingtang could feel a chill down his spine as he turned his head back slowly and looked at Huo Yunshen in disbelief.
For just an instant, he felt like someone was choking him, making it hard to breathe.
“What are you talking about? Are you suspecting me?’ Huo Jingtang smiled unnaturally. “I would never resort to such violence! You have to believe me!”
How am I supposed to believe you? Huo Yunshen scolded in his head. You better not let me find anything that could tie you to the accident!
“I’ll give you my answer tomorrow,” Huo Yunshen said as he turned, leaving Huo Jingtang at the door looking at his lonely back.
Huo Jingtang watched until Huo Yunshen went into his room before he let out a sigh of relief.
Why would he suddenly ask about the accident? Did he find something out? Impossible, all of the evidence has been taken care of, there’s no way that he could find anything.
After Huo Yunshen heard the door closed, all of his emotions were expressed all at once.
Even a person who was strong in front of everyone else has a weak side.
He raised his head as he closed his eyes in pain.
His hands were gripping his legs as they shook wildly.
He was hurt, he was in utter despair.
He wondered why God would put him in such a challenging situation.
God had taken away his legs and his confidence, forcing him to live in pain for the rest of his life.
He’d lost the woman he loved the most, and had no courage to tell
