Chapter 139 One Obstacle After Another
After hearing this, Gwen’s disgust and revulsion towards her mother reached a new level. She also felt sorry for her father. These years, he had truly endured a lot.
Gwen asked, “Dad, do you still not know who is behind Mom?”
Adam shook his head. “The other party has concealed themselves too well and they are very cautious. So, even after more than twenty years, I still haven’t discovered who that person is
Gwen realized that this was very complicated. “So, you also don’t know who Skyler’s biological father is? In all these years, hasn’t Mom met that man again?” She continued by mentioning the antiques that Melinda had given away. “Did you investigate who she gave them to?”
At that, Adam helplessly replied, “I did investigate, but every time I found a clue, it would be cut off. She secretly meets that man, but the special department can’t track them. Her lover is very cautious and skilled. I can’t act rashly and alert the enemy, so I can only proceed step by step.”
Moreover, he was just an ordinary person, so it was easier for the other party to evade him.
Of course, besides pretending to continue their love affair and spoiling the two of them, Adam had also done some things over the years.
But he didn’t need to disclose this to his daughter. Knowing these things would only be detrimental to her.
Gwen felt a chill run down her spine. “Then you can only continue fishing for information.”
Adam nodded, “Yes,”
Suddenly, she remembered something. “Dad, did you know that Skyler and Jodie are siblings?”
Adam replied, “Yes, I noticed that your mother treated Jodie differently, even to the point of liking and caring for her very much. I felt that something was off. If it weren’t for the fact that she had never been out of my sight for more than three months. I would have suspected that Jodie was her biological child. But we managed to obtain Jodie’s hair and conducted a DNA test. We found out that they are not related, so I also did a DNA test between Jodie and Skyler. That’s when I found out that they are siblings, both children of that womanizer. Your mother’s kindness towards Jodie is just a case of loving someone’s child as her own.”
In all honesty, Adam couldn’t comprehend the thought process of that woman either.
How can she love that man so much and still care for his daughter and other women’s daughters?
Chaper No One Obstacle After Ano
Presently, Gwen said, “Mrs. Jenner brought back the so–called niece, but she is actually her own daughter, and she is also Skyler’s half–sister. Simone and I discovered this a few days ago by accident
Adam was surprised to hear about the matter with the Jenner Family.
seems that Jenner was also cheated on! But he must not know what happened, as he really likes and dotes on his wife. That woman is different from your mother, she knows how to please her husband. She has influenced his decision–making. He only became a stepfather to Harold because of her.”
She is much smarter and more cunning than my wife. But it’s also a good thing that my wife is not that smart. She is self–righteous and thinks that I cannot live without her. Otherwise, I would not have been able to put on the act for so many years and she would’ve discovered everything.
Adam clicked his tongue and said. “The Jenner’s youngest son might also be an illegitimate child.”
The Foster and Jenner families had business dealings, and Adam had a good relationship with Sebastian Jenner, the matriarch of the Jenner Family.
It is evident that Sebastian did not like Harold, the son of the original wife.
He even harbored murderous intentions towards Harold in order to compete assets from his father.
for shares and
Harold had to be smart and go abroad to accumulate strength before coming back to challenge Sebastian.
It was because of all these complications that Adam felt the Jenner Family was too complicated and Harold was not a suitable match for his daughter.
He did not oppose)
daughter’s decision to go abroad because he hoped she would see
It was also to avoid the woman’s scheming.
Adam had always known that the woman wanted to obtain what his daughter had by any
He suspected that there was someone behind her who wanted it.
Gwen couldn’t help but comment. That womanizer is probably like the arrogant men in novels.”
He could seduce all kinds of beautiful women from different backgrounds.
these women would he and die for him, not to mention sacrifice everything for him
would also sympathize with each other and love him along with his illegitimate
king about it made Gwen sick
If it weren’t for this explanation, she wouldn’t understand her mother’s mindset.
Melinda utterly disliked Gwen because she resembled her father.
To Melinda, the birth of their siblings was evidence of her betrayal of that womanizer.
Mrbe Melinda knew that Gwen would be bullied and tormented when she sent her to her maternal family.
And then using the hands of her maternal family, she destroyed this evidence. The more Gwen thought about it the colder she felt.
Adam agreed with her. I sometimes have the same suspicion.”
Now they had discovered three illegitimate children with the same father but different mothers, and they were all placed in three major wealthy families.
That man must be a force to be reckoned with.
Adam thought for a moment and said. “In that case, Simone was most likely abducted by the person behind all this”
The womanizer might not have seduced Mrs Gray, or perhaps when the plan started. Steven was already married and it was too late.
To seize the fortune of the Gray Family, they devised a plan to kidnap their biological daughter and then find a way to send an adopted daughter in her stead.
It was truly a series of interconnected events.
The more they discovered, the more unsettling and fearful it became.
Upon hearing this. Gwen thought it was indeed possible. That person is truly evil.
She then recounted what happened in Steven’s office.
Then, she asked, “Dad, can I tell Simone about what we talked about today! Those people also want to harm her.”
The only people she trusted now were her biological father and Simone.
One Obstacle After Another
Gwen hoped Simone would know more about the situation and be better prepared.
Adamn guessed that his daughter would react this way.
He nodded. Tell her, then. It seems she has long been involved in this. If she doesn’t know anything or is just an ordinary person, telling her could easily expose and harm her. But she is a geomancy master and quite capable. Now it seems that the more she knows, the better it might be for her.”
Adam had a feeling that Simone might be a breakthrough in this matter.
“Besides Simone, you can’t tell anyone else about this. This includes your brother and Harold.”
He then continued, “When you see your mother and Skyler, act as if everything is normal, and don’t display any signs of suspicion.”
Gwen nodded. “Don’t worry; I understand.”
She didn’t want to behave like the foolish Leon.
After a moment of thought, she asked, “Dad, is my grandmother alright?”
Adam nodded. “She’s fine.”
He added, “All those conflicts with your grandfather in the past were just a pretense for your
mother and them.”
Gwen breathed a sigh of relief. “That’s good!”
After they finished their meal, Adam accompanied Gwen to the mall and bought her a variety of jewelry and clothes before parting ways.
Although Melinda was in the mansion, she quickly learned about this news.
She cursed them both silently.
She was particularly displeased and unhappy that Adam accompanied Gwen for shopping.
Even though she didn’t love Adam, she considered him her personal possession.
She didn’t appreciate him being kind to other women, even if it was her own daughter.
If she hadn’t been confined to the mansion by her wicked mother–in–law, she would have definitely called Adam back to keep her company.
