Theo sat in the chair, his weathered and wrinkled hands delicately grasping the cup of coffee as he took a sip. He slowly lifted his gaze and turned to his grandson Trevon, who was seated across the table. “You’ve spent half a month together. What are your thoughts on Natalie now? Is she a calculating girl that you think?”
Theo had also served in the army during his youth, and he could keenly discern the change in his grandson’s eyes.

Theo wished to advise Trevon, so he devised an excuse to have the butler take Natalie around the Wilson’s old residence.
Trevon pursed his lips, choosing not to answer the question.
But Theo couldn’t let him off so quickly. He glanced at his grandson and said, “Don’t think I don’t know that you coerced Natalie into signing a three-month agreement.
“You don’t need to look at me like that. Neither Natalie nor Jim informed. me about that. I have my own ways of finding out. As your grandfather, I fear your inherent suspicion may make you regret it later. Natalie is truly a good girl. Even those ladies born into wealth can’t match her.”

Before the Wilson family rose, the Foster family occupied a position of influence back then. It was all after Barron’s son took over the Foster family, and the Foster family gradually declined. After being saved by Barron, he and his wife visited us occasionally and even helped me as a middleman between business transactions. With Barron’s assistance, our path grew smoother slowly. He initially provided me with the necessary funds without asking for any returns. I expressed heartfelt gratitude and made him
