Emily Quest’s heart leaped hearing the good news. “So what you’re saying is that the Stanley Batton you found out yesterday is a different person from the Stanley Batton we saw?”
“Yes… Previously, I’d searched all the household registration databases around the world but I couldn’t find Stanley’s name at all. However, after Country Z updated the registry databases yesterday, I discovered that the name ‘Stanley Batton’ had been added inside. Coincidentally, he’s the same age as Xyla Quest’s husband.”
“This guy is extremely ugly and he’s married. Unfortunately, there isn’t any information about his other half in the databases and this guy was engaged in Country Y…”
The man continued, “There’s also another important piece of information from my investigation. I’ve been following your request to get my friend in Country Y to look into Dr. Batton’s grandson. Recently, my friend managed to get acquainted with a friend of Dr. Batton’s. He told my friend that…”
“Dr Batton’s grandson looked horrible. My friend showed him a picture of Xyla’s husband and he insisted that he didn’t look like that. Then, my friend showed him another picture of the ugly man in the registry databases. Without hesitation, he said that this man was Dr. Batton’s real grandson.”
“Furthermore, that person told my friend that his actual grandson married a woman two years ago. Apparently the two of them were not on speaking terms anymore due to frequent domestic violence by his grandson against his wife.”
Upon hearing that, she felt a surge of happiness grow inside her again. It seemed that all her previous speculations were accurate so far.
When Xyla got married, she tried to hide her marriage from her family until it was exposed. So the main reason behind it was because her husband was a huge embarrassment and humiliation. All those explanations she gave to her father later on were merely lies.
She must have thought that the others could not find out the truth so she decided to make up some lies. After that, she found a good-looking man, who knew a little bit of Chinese medicine, to act as his husband in order to complete her story.
Did Xyla actually suffer from frequent domestic violence?
It was truly a tragedy to be married to such an ugly man and to be abused by him every day. Nevertheless, why did she feel so relieved to hear that?
That ugly duckling was a good match for Xyla indeed.
“You’ve done a great job this time. I’ll transfer seventy five thousand to you right away.” Emily snorted.
“Thank you. Thank you, Miss. As the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining. It’s impossible for a normal human being like me to get in touch with Dr. Batton. If it wasn’t for the fact that my friend happened to meet a friend of Dr. Batton’s recently, the investigation wouldn’t have proceeded without a hitch, and the truth wouldn’t have come to the wash so quickly.” The man sounded particularly merry on the other end of the phone.
“That means that little b*tch, Xyla has used up all of her luck for the rest of her life.” Eeriness grew inside her eyes like a tumor, her hands on her thighs gradually clenched into fists.
No one on the earth was going to be that smug all the time!
‘Just wait and see, Xyla.’ She thought.
‘You’re screwed this time!’
“Yes, you’re right,” The man responded.
“By the way, since your friend’s friend knows Dr. Batton… Can your friend ask him to take you to Dr. Batton so you can tell him that someone was posing as his grandson?”
“I’m afraid not. Dr. Batton refuses to meet any random strangers even if they’re introduced by his friends.”
“I’m afraid not. Dr. Batton refuses to meet any random strangers even if they’re introduced by his friends.” The man answered truthfully.
Emily simply nodded. “I get it. I’ll contact you again if I need your help. Keep in touch.”
Then, she hung up the phone. Casually tossing her phone to the bed, Emily could hardly contain her joy and her hopes soared. She let out a sigh of relief before plopping into her bed. She felt extremely refreshed and invigorated at the moment. Having the truth on hand, she could definitely trip up Xyla.
If their father found out that Xyla had simply married a n ugly, violent man and invited some handsome guy home to trick her parents in order to maintain her good reputation, he would be so shocked and furious.
By that time, Xyla would not only lose her throne as the heir of Quest Property Group but she would also be kicked out of the house by their father.
What would happen to a woman, who had long been subjected to domestic violence by a hideous man, if she was kicked out of the house? :
It was either she returned to her abusive husband and got beaten up, or she ended up living a miserable life alone out there. No matter what she chose, she would lose everything in the end!
