“Eavesdropping? I was just passing by. Besides, I‘m worried about my daughter‘s safety, okay?”
“Willow, I‘m telling you. Just because Sean has been shelling out a lot of money lately doesn‘t mean I‘ve given you two my blessing. You better know where to draw the line. You can‘t just hand out what‘s most precious to a woman.” Fion widened her eyes and said with a cold short, “I can‘t just let trash casually defile the daughter I‘ve raised for twenty years!”
Willow chuckled at her last sentence.
“What are you talking about, Mon? Sean isn‘t a pig.” Willow shook her head and said in resignation.
“Then I don‘t care. You don‘t have my blessing no matter what. Neither would Old Madam nor the Quinn family give it. You were the one who said he‘d leave the Quinn family when he recovered. You can‘t go back on your word.” Fion looked at Willow, his tone resolute.
Willow looked blankly at Fion for a few seconds and asked in confusion, “Mom, did someone say something to you again?”
Fion‘s attitude toward Sean had softened considerably these days. She never mentioned getting rid of Sean again. Her sudden attitude change made Willow think someone must have told Fion something.
“Never mind if anyone said anything to me. I‘m telling you the truth, the truth you have to deal with one way or another. The 9th is only a few days away. You‘d better make up your mind in advance.” Fion snorted before turning and entering the room.
Willow folded her hands and wrung her fingers slowly.
Moments later, Willow turned to glance at Sean‘s door and let out a long sigh.
The next day.
Sean wanted to take Willow to work. However, Willow rejected Sean.
Firstly, she did not want to trouble Sean. Secondly, she did not want others to look at Sean differently. After all, it was a fact that Sean was crippled.
At the same time, Fion wanted to talk to him, so Sean agreed.
In the living room, Fion folded her arms in front of her and watched the TV with a blank face. Sean sat in a wheelchair at the side.
“Sean, I‘m telling you.” Fion reached for her phone to check the time.
She was about to return to her haughty self but suddenly realized Sean paid for it. Therefore, she had no choice but to rein in the attitude a little.
“Do you think you deserve… Do you think you and Willow are a good match?” Fion wanted to ask whether he thought he deserved Willow.
However, she changed what she had to say when she saw the designer clothes she was wearing.
Sean looked at Fion as he asked in a whisper. “Aunt Fion, do you think we‘re not a good match?”
“Yes!” Fion replied in one word without hesitation.
“Firstly, I don‘t know where your money came from, but it‘s nothing compared to the Zimmer family of River City!”
“Secondly, the Zimmer family of River City is a rich family with unlimited potential. They have an abundance of connections and great power. Everyone wants to be the best, and you need both money and power for that.”
“Tell me, who would you choose if it were you, Sean? Any normal person would choose the heir of the Zimmer family!”
Fion had a point.
“Besides, at least Quill was normal, and he won‘t drag Willow down.” Fion added when Sean did not speak.
“None of these problems you mention are problems. I will recover, and money and power are at my fingertips.” Sean looked at Fion, his tone calm.
“You must be joking I know you want to say you love Willow. But how can you love without money in the real world? Sweet talk and empty promises? Speaking of which, I think Quill is a smoother talker than you are.” Fion waved her hands as she answered, she was not furious but calmly explaining a fact to Sean.
Sean shook his head slightly, trying not to explain too much.
“Don‘t blame me for being harsh. Let‘s not speak of nothing but the matter at hand. Young Master Zimmer has booked the entire Riverleaf Lakeside Hotel to confess to Willow.”
“And you… What can you do?”
“On the 9th, you could only watch Willow get picked up by a long luxurious limo. Quill and Willow are going to enjoy the limelight. And you can only stay home and do nothing.” Fion dropped her arms, turned off the TV with a thud, looked at Sean, and spoke indifferently.
Sean looked Fion in the eye for a few seconds and then said, “The confession at Riverleaf Lakeside Hotel will go ahead as scheduled on the 9th. But Quill might not be the one to confess to Willow.”
