Chapter 200 How Dare He Treat Her Like This?
Leon suddenly had a realization and asked, “Mom, do you really believe that?”
His mother confidently replied, “It’s not just my belief; it’s the truth. You’re still too naive. That’s why Simone is able to manipulate you so easily. She was so malicious and aggressive towards Jo during the live broadcast, and it was really unpleasant. She doesn’t even know how to respect me when she sees me. She even encouraged your sister to deliberately go against me. It’s a good thing you broke up with someone like her who stirs up trouble. Otherwise, if she entered our family, I don’t know what kind of chaos she would cause. When choosing a wife, one should choose a virtuous one to bring prosperity to the family.”
Whenever Simone was mentioned, Melinda’s disgust was evident.
She couldn’t hold back her insults. “Someone like her-
But before she could finish, Leon couldn’t help but interrupt, “Enough! Mom, I just want to ask: is Jodie your daughter, or am I your son? It’s too much for you to twist the truth and slander Simone for the sake of Jodie.”
He felt like he had been doused with cold water as his heart turned icy cold.
He felt incredibly foolish for obeying his mother’s arrangements and taking care of Jodie for the sake of this false motherly love, just as his sister had said.
Because of these two women with the same distorted values, he lost the girl he loved.
Melinda didn’t expect Leon to interrupt her.
She was furious, “Is this how you talk to your mother? I’m your mother. Can I harm you?” She believed that Simone was a disaster.
Indeed, whenever that seductive woman was involved, her son would drift away from her.
As for her daughter, she was even worse. All because of that seductive woman, she constantly confronted her own mother.
Leon’s voice turned cold. “Only you know the answer to that. If Jodie is so good, why don’t you bring her home and make her your daughter? You’ve already caused me to lose the person I truly love. What more do you want? Are you happy only if you drive me to death?” He had truly lost his mind before as he sought this kind of motherly love.
His sister was right; his mother wanted to control his life completely.
Melinda couldn’t believe that Leon would dare to defy her for Simone.
What did he mean when he said I would be happy by trying to drive him to death? Is this something a son should say to his own mother?
She sternly rebuked, “Leon, you are out
When he heard this reprimand, Leon suddenly felt incredibly sober.
He no longer wanted this ridiculous motherly love.
“Mom, as Gwen said, it’s no longer the feudal era. Why do you always have to treat yourself like an empress dowager? You don’t allow us siblings to argue back, and you don’t allow us to break free from your control. You have no idea, and you act as if there’s a throne in this household waiting to be inherited. But have you ever considered what kind of family you come from? A sparrow cannot become a phoenix, so you can never truly be an empress dowager.”
He couldn’t help but add, “Don’t bother telling me that you’re my mother and, therefore, the superior one. But you never raised me for a single day; I was raised by my grandfather. The money I spend is given by my father and earned by myself. You haven’t contributed anything, so why do you think you have the right to control my life and arrange everything for me? You should reflect on yourself. Are you even fit to be a mother? From now on, please refrain from meddling and interfering in my affairs. Even if you meddle, I won’t listen to you. anymore,
“Otherwise, my life will truly be ruined by you, my own mother. Since you cherish and adore. Jodie so much, why don’t you fly to Slovance yourself to take care of her? If you really want to display your motherly love, you can matchmake Skyler and Jodie!”
He finally vented the frustration that had been building up inside him.
Suddenly, he realized something.
His mother loved Jodie so much, as if she wanted him to marry her and shower her with affection, but why make him marry her? Wouldn’t it be better for her beloved eldest son to marry her instead? Her favorite son and daughter–in–law could form the most harmonious and beautiful family.
For the first time, Leon defied and mocked his mother, which left Melinda furious.
“Y–You wicked child. Are you trying to anger me?”
Leon retorted, “I dare not anger you. Otherwise, I’m afraid my father will break my legs. Mom, don’t think you can continue to pretend and bestow me with your fake motherly love. Don’t expect me to obey your every command. I can see through it all; I don’t want this kind. of motherly love anymore. You’ve caused me to lose the person I loved the most and now I don’t want to care about anything or want anything. And don’t even think about bringing my father out to suppress me; I’m not afraid.”
He threatened again, “If you continue to control me like this, blaming me for the sake of an outsider and forcing me to cater to a woman I dislike, I’ll go find Grandma and let her have a good talk with you. What about your cousins from your mother’s side? Haven’t they already entered the entertainment industry? Believe it or not, I can immediately kick them out of the entertainment industry as long as I speak up.”
Melinda was so angry that her whole body trembled. How dare Leon treat her like this?
“That’s it. Let’s not contact each other anymore.” Leon didn’t want to say anything more, Otherwise, he would feel that his past self was too foolish.
So, he decisively hung up the phone and blocked his mother’s phone number.
Melinda felt stunned when she heard the busy tone coming from her phone.
It was really hard to believe that ever since her son was brought back home from high school, he had been longing for his mother’s love. Yet, he would treat her like this now.
Was he rebelling? She felt uncomfortable and wanted to call and scold him, but she couldn’t get through and realized she had been blocked.
Melinda felt so wronged that she couldn’t help but call Mr. Foster to complain.
After listening to Melinda’s complaints, Mr. Foster was somewhat surprised.
It was rare; his youngest son finally saw through his mother’s true intentions.
The so–called motherly love was all fake; it was just a strong desire for control, but he couldn’t be straightforward with his son before, in case his son exposed him.
Without experiencing it firsthand, he wouldn’t understand the true meaning of pain and the lessons it brings.
Now was a perfect opportunity to start.
Mr. Foster pretended to join in and scolded Leon angrily for his ignorance.
Then he reassured Melinda and explained that he was currently on a business trip. He would address the issue with Leon upon his return.
He discreetly signaled to his secretary with a glance as he pretended that he was being summoned for a meeting and used this as an excuse to end the phone call.
The more Melinda pondered over it, the more her anger grew, and she felt a deep sense of unease as if she had been wounded.
Her son was willing to forsake everything for a woman she despised in defiance of her
How could she allow this to happen?
However, she was unable to take any action against Leon at the moment,
She could only hope that her husband would return and teach Leon a lesson.
She wanted her disobedient child to realize his mistake and come to her with an apology.
As for Leon’s suggestion of having their eldest son marry Jodie, it was completely absurd,
They were siblings who shared the same father, so how could they possibly be together?
But it did trigger a thought in her mind, so she decided to call Skyler.
