Krystal finally started to feel fear. Her father had always been strict.
Back when the siblings were young, she saw Mason stripping Linus’
Then, he had him kneel on the snow as he whipped him.
Mason tolerated her behavior repeatedly because she was a woman
and didn’t get to grow up by his side.
But the incident today was the last straw. Mason had enough.
Linus rushed over after he sent the guests away. After all, no one
would be in the mood for food after an incident like that.
As soon as he stepped into the room, he heard Tatiana and Krystal
“What’s going on?”
“Linus, you’re here just in time. You’ve always doted on me. Please
talk to Dad. He wants to disown me!”
Linus frowned. He was a little confused.
“Dad, Krystal may have been in the wrong today, but isn’t this too harsh of a punishment? How would she survive on her own?”
“If she can’t survive on her own, how was Olivia able to become a
renowned doctor? Her family went bankrupt, and both her parents are
As soon as he said that, Linus looked at him.
“Dad, how do you know all that?”
Linus’ impression of Olivia was that she was the ex-wife that Ethan.
He had only learned about Olivia’s background in the past couple of days and just found out how hard her life had been.
But Mason was able to talk about her background so casually despite
only knowing of her identity moments ago.
Naturally, Linus didn’t know that Mason saw Olivia’s face the first
time Ethan brought Olivia to the awards banquet. Mason saw her face
on the news because it was reported on a national scale.
So, he looked into Olivia in private. He only dropped it after confirming
that Jeff couldn’t possibly be related to him.
Then, Olivia disappeared for three years. She finally showed up before
him at the banquet.
In the past, he had only seen her on television.
Seeing her in person caused him to lose his composure because it
felt like he was reunited with an old acquaintance.
Everyone felt Mason’s attitude toward Olivia was weird.
“I don’t have to explain myself to you. Krystal, I’ll give you one night to pack up. I don’t want to see your dumb face in my house from
Tatiana wanted to try to talk Mason out of it.
“Mason, she’s my daughter after all
Before she could finish, Mason cut her off.
“Anyone who tries to persuade me to let her stay can pack up and go
Tatiana fell silent immediately. There was no use talking to him while
he was still in a bad mood.
Mason looked at Linus and said, “Get a car ready. I’m heading out.”
Linus wasn’t weak or emotional like his sister. He quickly composed
himself. “Yes, father.”
“Where are you going, Mason?”
Mason shook her arm away. “None of your business.”
He put on his coat and walked outside..
Krystal grabbed Tatiana’s arm with tears in her eyes and pleaded with
“What do I do, Mom? Dad is furious with me.”
“It’s because of all the things you’ve done. I can’t help you this time.
Your Dad was already on the verge of losing it last time. You’re really
Tatiana didn’t understand why her daughter could be so dumb.
“I didn’t want to do it either. It’s all Yale’s fault. He told me I could’ve
exposed that bitch. I didn’t know she was Olivia.”
“Your Dad is actually seriously angry this time. Pack your stuff and go
live with your grandma for a few days.
“Come back when your father’s in a better mood. You can also go to
the villa on the south side of the city. I’ll send some maids to take
care of you there.”
