Ring ring ring… Jeremy Quest’s call came in.
Xyla Quest answered his call immediately. “Hi, Daddy.”
“Xyla, I’m going to bring your sister out. My heart aches so badly when I look at her, I can’t sleep all night long. No matter what, she’s still my daughter, can you understand Daddy, Xyla?” Jeremy’s voice was a little hoarse.
Xyla could feel that he was in pain and anxiety even through the phone. Her heart wrenched badly when she heard her father’s voice. The tip of her nose, too, was sore.
“Yeah, I understand, Dad…” she closed her eyes as she let out a heavy sigh.
Cough… Cough…“Xyla, it’s great that you understand. Don’t worry, your position in the Quest family will never change even if Emily is released. I’ll give my company to you, everything I own will be yours.” Jeremy coughed as he spoke on the phone.
“Emily has lost the ability to go against you now, she’s abnormal. Xyla, no matter what grudges you bore against her, just let go of them, do that for me, can you?” He continued. He was coughing worse now.
“Dad, are you alright?” Xyla’s chest was tight.
She should have thought of this earlier. After all, Emily was his daughter, they shared the same blood, it must be so heartbreaking to see Emily end up this way.
“I’ve been running around because of your sister these two days. It’s very tiring and I’m also in a really bad mood. My body is unwell so they sent me to the hospital.” Jeremy explained and let out a heavy sigh.
“What? Why didn’t you tell me earlier?” Xyla was getting more and more anxious.
“I’m probably overworked.” Jeremy Quest added, “I’ve already made a will and handed it over to my lawyer to be notarized. If I die one day, Quest Property Group will be passed to you, Emily and May will get five percent of the share, as well as half of the cars and properties under my name, and about two hundred million.”
Xyla did not expect that what she had been waiting for all the time, was finally happening right now. Her father had her a will all of a sudden, and appointed her as his heir.
She should be overjoyed but she did not feel happy at all at this moment. There was only agony and anxiety in her heart. She was extremely worried about her father. “Daddy, which ward are you in?”
“In the same ward as your sister.” He began to cough violently again as he finished his sentence. He was breathing rapidly now.
“I’ll visit you later. ” Xyla said.
After the call ended, Xyla was burning inside, as if her heart had been torn apart by something fierce. She was more concerned about her father than Emily now. Her heart was filled with mixed feelings. She enjoyed having revenge on Emily, but looking at how Emily had deeply affected her father, she could not help but felt guilty about it.
All kinds of emotions mixed together, tearing her apart from the inside out. She felt immensely awful.
“Is Uncle sick?” Georgie Clementine was holding Xyla with concern.
“Yes… Georgie, I think we should put a stop to our revenge against Emily.” Xyla closed her eyes in despair, there was a slight red tinge under her eyes.
The current Emily, she had nothing to lose even if she is released. Her divorce with Tom Sullivan had become a fact. Even if they failed to do so now, Tom would never take her seriously anymore. It had to be done sooner or later.
Jeremy just told Xyla that all the properties of Quest belonged to her, Emily had lost her chance to compete for Quest Property Group. Their father would never make a promise that he could not keep, the will was made, and it would not be changed anymore.
Emily was suffering from severe depression right now, and she might never be able to live a normal life for the rest of her life.
