From cordyceps and sea cucumbers, to bird’s nest and quality tea leaves, and even expensive red wine, everything was there.
Dressed in a crisp white shirt, paired with a black, double-breasted long woolen coat with vertical lines, his coordination made his features look divine. With his lush black hair combed into a natural 3:7 hairstyle, he looked clean-cut.
The maids immediately became fans of his face when they saw him. Having completely been entranced by Stanley’s looks, they couldn’t take their eyes off him. Each one started gabbling in hushed voices, praising Stanley’s good looks.
“Ahhh! Our young master is really handsome. I can’t breathe.”
“Miss has really good taste.”
Xyla and Jeremy were drinking tea in the living room when they heard the commotion at the door. Both of them looked over at the same time. Stanley gave Xyla a faint glance before nodding respectfully at Jeremy.
Then, he brought the gifts over to the older man. Putting the gifts gently down on the table, he lowered his head and said, “Hi Dad, I heard from Xyla that you’re fond of these, so this is just a little token of my regard.”
“Hello, Stan. Thank you so much. You shouldn’t have. You don’t have your own business at the moment, so it’s good enough that you just show up. There’s no need to spend so much on this old man.”
Jeremy was just as friendly as before, his eyes filled with admiration.
Why didn’t he realize before that Stanley had what the youngsters nowadays called an ‘appearance complex’?
Besides appearance, he was also extremely caring for Jeremy’s daughter and had exceptional medical skills. Most importantly, he had the steadfast aura of a powerful man.
Having met so many people in his life, Jeremy knew that this son-in-law of his would definitely be a great figure in the future.
“Dad, you’re too kind. As someone younger, it’s only natural for me to show filial piety. When I earn more money in the future, I’ll definitely honor you even more,” Stanley replied cordially, showing decency.
Smiling in satisfaction, Xyla got up and affectionately latched onto Stanley’s arm. “Honey, come and sit down.”
Mildly curling his lips, he sat down with her. His smile made him look even more handsome. Xyla even felt that this was the best scenery she had seen in her entire life. Ever since she got acquainted with him, she finally understood the saying of ‘a smile that can destroy cities’.
“Stan, I heard from Xyla that your grandfather is the reputable Dr. Batton from Country Y. He’s truly a remarkable man,” said Jeremy.
“Dad, you’re too kind.”
“What do your parents do?” asked Jeremy.
“My mother is a housewife and my dad has done many types of work.”
Due to his mother’s superior family background and wonderful marriage, she had never really done anything. Before she got married, she was a pampered wealthy young lady. After she got married, she was a well-loved rich madam. As for his father, Dragon Group was involved in too many industries so, sure enough, they did just about everything. Hence, what he said was the truth.
Jeremy nodded. “Oh, oh, I understand…”
His father’s career must be really unstable, and his mother had always been a housewife so she never worked. But that didn’t matter. Even if his family background was below average, it was enough that the boy was excellent.
With his exceptional medical skills, it would be a cinch for him to grow exponentially if he started his own traditional hospital. Although this son-in-law was quite different from the standard he had anticipated previously, all in all, Jeremy was still satisfied.
“I heard from Xyla that you’ve returned to the country because you want to start your own hospital. So, you won’t be leaving anymore, right? When do you plan to start?” asked Jeremy.
