Mason looked gently at Olivia. “Your temperament matches mine quite well, and your eyes…”
“My eyes?” Olivia looked at Mason with a curious gaze.
“Nothing. I hope you do a good job, child. I won’t mistreat you.” In the
end, Mason didn’t continue his sentence.
Only her eyes looked like that person. Olivia Fordham should be the one who looked the most similar to that person.
Back then, Ethan had gotten married on his own, and Mason had no
idea who the bride was.
Later on, when Ethan attended the award ceremony with Olivia,
Mason was shocked to see Olivia’s face.
Mason even asked someone to investigate in private. Olivia’s father
was Jeff Fordham, and the Fordhams were Aldenvine locals. Mason
was sure that they had nothing to do with that woman.
Olivia felt that Mason had many things he didn’t mention. She
wondered what it was that Mason chose not to say.
It was snowing heavily outside. Olivia accompanied Mason as she
made nutritious food for him. She made tea and cakes for him as
At first, she had approached Mason for Jack’s and Ethan’s sake. She was looking for a chance to finish him off.
There was no better chance to do it than to stay by his side and do it
without him realizing it.
But later on, she was sincerely taking care of him.
Perhaps it was because she had only ever received love from Jeff in
her youth; she was more caring toward old men.
She felt some sort of natural intimacy between them. If not, she
wouldn’t have stayed behind even after Krystal had challenged her
time and again.
At night, Linus prepared a room for Olivia in the inner yard. The
was quite close to both Linus’ and Mason’s rooms.
It wasn’t just spacious, but it was also quite clean as well.
Olivia was about to fall asleep when she heard Krystal making a fuss.
“Dad, why did you get someone to turn off the heating in my room?”
Olivia thought that Mason didn’t mean what he said just now, but
unexpectedly, he did what he said he would do.
Mason said with a cold voice, “Since you two think that turning off the
heating system for a night is nothing, you two can experience it for
“What’s wrong? If other people are allowed to sleep without heating,
why can’t you?”
Krystal immediately retorted, “Who does she think she is? How can
she compare to us?”
“Krystal!” Mason’s voice grew even lower. It was obvious that he was
truly mad now.
Olivia closed the door. It no longer mattered to her whether Krystal
managed to get the heating system running or not.
Krystal should bear the consequences of her actions.
Meanwhile, in Mason’s room, Tatiana patted Krystal on the shoulder.”
Krystal, I’ll talk to him. You should go back to your room.”
Krystal turned around, wiping her tears as she left the room.
When Tatiana closed the door, the gentle look on her face was gone. Mason, are you seriously telling me to sleep in my daughter’s room? And you won’t allow them to turn on the heating?”
“Yes. Do you seriously think that I can’t figure out who planned the incident today?
“Alfred has been working here for so long, so how would he dare to be so disrespectful to our guests?
“Would you dare say that this has nothing to do with you? I’m being nice to you by not exposing you in front of other people, but who do
you think you are?
“If people hear that you’re causing trouble for a young lady, what will they think of you?”
Titans raised her voice. “Then tell me. She’s just a young lady, so why are you being so nice to her? Don’t tell me you’re thinking of getting her to marry Linus!”
Mason frowned. “Why would you think that?”
“I can’t think of any position for her other than your daughter-in-law.
She saved your life, after all. But I’m telling you, I only have those two
“Their spouses will have to be the best people in the world, not some
random woman who came from the wild!
“My son is a commander, so only the most noble woman in the world
is worthy of him!”
