Chapter 138 A Huge Misunderstanding
Adam had always held a favorable opinion of Simone. However, he didn’t want to interfere with his son’s emotions.
He had previously reminded his son, but it seemed like his words hadn’t been taken to heart.
Moreover, he didn’t want to involve an innocent girl in any matters, so he chose not to
Now it appeared that just because Simone wasn’t with his son, it didn’t mean she wouldn’t be affected.
Gwen disagreed, saying. “There’s nothing to regret.”
After all, why should Simone endure the grievances of Leon, just as Gwen had endured Harold?
“If you have Leon but don’t cherish him, there’s no one to blame.”
Adam smiled. “I don’t understand the love affairs of you young people.”
His son had been secretly seeing Jodie while still in a relationship, and only distanced himself after they broke up, hoping for a reconciliation. So why did he engage in such behavior in the first place?
Gwen raised an eyebrow. “I also don’t understand the love affair between you and Mom.”
Adam was speechless. “You didn’t just want to have a meal with me today, did you? If you have something to say, just say it. If I can help you understand, I will.”
Gwen didn’t beat around the bush. “Dad, do you know that Skyler is not your biological son?”
Adam’s expression changed slightly when he heard this. “How did you find out?”
Gwen only now realized that she had misunderstood her biological father before.
Is he really not led by his heart?
“Simone figured it out from the resemblance.” Gwen also mentioned the fact that Jodie and Skyler were half–siblings.
Adam didn’t show any surprise. “It seems that Simone is quite perceptive.”
Gwen proudly said, “Of course, Simone is amazing!” She then curiously asked, “Dad, when
i out about this?”
Chapter 138 A Huge Misunderstanding
Adam hadn’t wanted to reveal these things to his daughter before, but now he realized she knew quite a bit. Since it was already involved, there was no point in keeping it a secret
He said. “I found out when he was just born, right after I did a DNA test.”
Gwen was stunned. “So. you suspected that he wasn’t your son?”
Adam nodded. “Yes, when she was pregnant. I noticed something was off. I had doubts, so I decided to verify it.”
Gwen didn’t understand. “If that’s the case, why didn’t you reveal the truth and get a divorce? Not only did you raise Skyler, but you also made him an important figure in the Foster Family. What’s even more bewildering is that you had more children with Mom, which is us siblings.”
She would feel disgusted if she found out that she was being deceived, and there would be no way for them to continue their relationship.
With a sympathetic look, she said. “You really are a fool. Before, I thought I had misunderstood, but it seems that you are still infatuated!”
As for Adam, he felt helpless when his daughter accused him of being infatuated.
He replied angrily. “If I were truly infatuated, you and your siblings wouldn’t even be alive right now. I was very angry when I found out the truth at that time. I originally wanted to be
meone was using your open about it and divorce your mother, but I discovered that mother and this child to plot against our family. I can’t be selfish. Otherwise, the Foster Family would be in great trouble.”
Gwen thought for a moment and asked again. Then why did you marry Mom, the troublemaker? Did you really like her before?”
Adam replied, “I was deceived. It was because of me that I met her and inexplicably fell in love with her.” He continued tactfully, I can only be interested in her and feel nothing for
In other words, he felt nothing when it came to other women. “Then one night, I don’t know why, but I ended up being with her. And then she became pregnant with Skyler, and that’s why I married her. Marrying her was also an impulsive decision.”
It was precisely because of this that he felt something was off. After all, he had always been calm and rational, not someone driven by emotions.
He was certain he didn’t truly love that woman, but he couldn’t help but get closer to her, feeling as if he genuinely liked her.
He paused and continued. Then, I discovered that the people behind her were not ordinary.
Chapter 1 A Huge Mhinalong
and the Foster Family was in a disadvantageous positioit The reason your grandfather left Ale capital and went to that small town was also because of this. Before he left, he told me
the only way to break the situation was to endure. We have to lure out the people behind her and autke them down decisively. Otherwise, the Foster Family will be finished.
Odense, how could Adam pretend to be deeply in love and always indulge that woman wird her thegitimate chikt?
“Having all of you was indeed an unexpected turn of events.”
Since that woman became pregnant and entered the family, he had never slept with her.
“After she found out about the pregnancy, she didn’t want any of you and planned to have an abortion. I was deceived, and I thought I wouldn’t have any descendants. I felt disgusted and suspected that it was the work of the people behind her. But with all of you, I am hopeful and happy. Concidentally, she had some health issues, so I had the doctor tell her that having an abortion would be harmful to her body. She couldn’t bear to harm her own body, so she had no choice but to give birth to all of you. Indeed, she didn’t like any of you at all. Especially after you started to look more and more like me, she liked you even less.”
Originally, Adam had been prepared to live a life without having children.
When this unexpected situation arose, even though he despised that woman, he didn’t direct his anger towards his two biological children.
Instead, he genuinely cared for them. The children were innocent, so since the accident happened, he would welcome them with open arms.
They carried his blood, and he would fulfill his duty as a father to care for them and protect them as they grew up safely.
Gwen didn’t expect there to be such a hidden story.
Her sympathy for her biological father deepened and she murmured, “Dad, you’ve really suffered and endured so much over the years.”
Adam sighed upon hearing that. ‘Indeed.
No one could understand the feeling of suppressing disgust and pretending to love those two people.
Gwen sighed again. “And you’re so good at enduring.”
Adam had become an expert in it, enduring the disgust of sleeping with that woman and the issue of the illegitimate child.
In the end, he still had to pretend to love them.
If it were Gwen, she probably couldn’t do it.
So, this may be the limit of his tolerance.
In order to protect the Foster Family and consider the bigger picture, Adam willingly made
“Dad, if you were to join the entertainm award.”
industry, you would definitely win the Best Actor
Adam smiled bitterly. “Do you think I want to be in this situation? I have no choice but to endure for the sake of the Foster Family, for you, and myself.”
A hint of coldness flickered in his eyes. “When the time comes for the truth to come to light, I won’t let them get away easily.”
Gwen, however, was a bit confused. “Dad, why are those people targeting the Foster Family? They have put so much effort into this game, so there must be a purpose. Do they want something from the Foster Family?”
Adam had already revealed so much and didn’t hide anything anymore.
“Your grandfather speculated that they want to steal the accumulated luck of the Foster Family over so many generations.”
Gwen widened her eyes. “They want to steal our luck? But isn’t witchcraft prohibited by the special department?”
Adam nodded. “It is, which is why they have been secretly deploying and patiently waiting. The special department still hasn’t uncovered the person behind all of this. When the time comes, they will reveal themselves and we can catch them.”
Otherwise, why would he endure the disgust for so many years?
