Lukas Left The Sue Garden Before she could finish talking, Victor kicked her away, causing her to fall flat on the ground. Thanks to her reflexes, the maid managed to protect herself using her palms to soften the fall. But as a result, her wrist was fractured, and her face paled in an instant due to the pain. “Mr. Sullivan… Sir…” Victor‘s eyes were frigid when he glanced down at her. “You want to bear a child for me, you say? How dare you have such a pipe dream?” The maid was trembling in fear. “Mr. Sullivan, I… I just…” “**** off!” Victor commanded. “You‘re fired. From now on, you don‘t work here anymore!” By now, the maid was panicking. Completely disregarding the pain from her wrist, she knelt on the ground, and crawled to Victor‘s feet. “Mr. Sullivan, I‘m so sorry. I was wrong to suggest something like that. I was completely out of my mind,” Victor kicked her shoulder again before she could even finish talking. Bang! The maid fell heavily on the ground again. Her entire body was trembling with pain and fear. “I‘m giving you three seconds to get the **** out of my house!” Victor commanded.
This time, she didn‘t cling to any trace of hope. She immediately got up and stumbled out of the study. Lukas happened to be on his way to the study, so he saw the maid fleeing the room in embarrassment. For a moment, he was surprised by what he witnessed. Afterwards, he knocked on the open door.
“Mr. Sullivan.” Glancing at Lukas, Victor calmed himself down, though the anger on his face was still apparent. Lukas had served his grandmother in the past, and she had asked him to take care of Victor after her death. Thus, Victor regarded him with a certain degree of respect. “What‘s the matter?” Lukas pursed his lips and said, “Sir, I‘m afraid that you‘ve misjudged Miss Bennet this time. I‘ve already checked the surveillance footage. The reason Miss Bennet said those words which vexed you was because the maid had insulted her first, and.” “Lukas, remember who you work for,” Victor interrupted him in a commanding voice. Obviously, he was trying to warn him. Lukas‘ heart sank. He could tell that Victor was too angry at the moment to listen to him, so he immediately lowered his head and replied, “I remember, sir.” “Oh, you remember, huh? In that case, do not disobey my orders again and again for someone else‘s sake!”
Lukas fell silent. Victor‘s eyes darkened. He got up, and walked to the floor–to–ceiling window. After a moment of silence, he asked, “Lukas, how long have you been working for the Sullivan family?” Lukas was taken aback. He didn‘t know why Victor would suddenly ask him that, but he answered the question honestly. “In two weeks, it‘ll be my fiftieth year of working for this family. The Sullivan family took me in when I was only fifteen years old. I worked for ten years as a servant, until your grandmother noticed my loyalty and appreciated my hard work. As a result, she promoted me as the family butler.” In all honesty, Lukas had devoted his entire life to the Sullivan family. Time fleeted by, and he was now sixty-five years old. “I heard that your daughter, grandson, and granddaughter have been living abroad all this time.” Victor turned around to look at him intently. “That‘s right, sir.” “You once served my grandmother for so many years, and even after her death, you kept working here in the Sue Garden. Decades have passed, and you‘re getting old now, Lukas. I think it‘s time for you to enjoy your remaining time with your family. Since your children and grandchildren are living abroad, you should go find them and live with them. I‘ll tell Ivan to book a flight ticket for you, and arrange everything necessary for the trip. You‘re leaving tomorrow.” Upon hearing that, Lukas‘ face was overcame with shock. He immediately got on his knees. “Mr. Sullivan, are you sending me away?”
Meanwhile, at Jack‘s house. Jack returned home, infuriated. Caroline and Alice had been waiting for him in the living room. When they heard the door open, they immediately stood up to greet him. “Dad, what did Rachel say? Did she agree to help me?” Alice asked anxiously. Jack glanced at Alice. It looked like he was about to say something, but in the end, he just let out a sigh. Upon seeing him sigh, Alice frowned and turned to Caroline, indicating her to do something Caroline immediately took the hint. She took Alice‘s hand to calm her down. Afterwards, she said to the housekeeper, “Viola, bring me the herbal tea I made today. People are prone to getting anxious during autumn. Drinking some tea can help calm down.” She then turned to Jack and said, “I know that what you did was difficult, considering Rachel has a problem with me and Alice—”
“She agreed,” Jack interrupted her. Alice‘s eyes lit up. She immediately ran to hold Jack‘s arm. “Dad, I knew you could do it!” There was strange look on his face when Jack drew his hand back, and went to the living room to sit down. After a moment of silence, he said, “She agreed to help us in exchange for three conditions.” Hearing that, Alice and Caroline exchanged confused glances. Afterwards, they looked at Jack together. “Conditions, seriously? How dare that Rachel bargain with her own father?!” Alice gritted her teeth; her eyes were brimming with anger. Compared to her, Caroline was calmer. She comforted Alice, and then sat next to Jack. “If there are conditions, it‘s fine. But I‘d like to know what those conditions are.” Jack looked at his wife, and guilt flashed through his eyes. It had been a while, but he still hadn‘t said a word. Unable to wait any longer, Alice urged him to speak. “Dad, just tell us! What are the conditions you‘re talking about?” “Rachel asked me to renounce her, and demanded me to transfer my shares of the Bennet Group back to her,” Jack said in a barely audible voice. The smile on Caroline‘s face disappeared. Alice, on the other hand, clenched her fists and shouted, “She asked you to transfer your shares to her? That Rachel is so greedy and shameless!” Jack fell silent. Caroline frowned and pretended to scold Alice. “Alice, mind your words. She‘s still your sister! The Bennet Group originally belonged to her. Now that she wants it, we should just give it to her.”
Ignoring Alice, Caroline turned to Jack and held his hand. It seemed that she was blaming herself. “I didn‘t expect that Rachel hated Alice and I so much that she would sever her ties with you.” Jack snorted, “That girl is nothing but an ungrateful daughter. Your kindness is wasted on her. If she wants to cut ties with me, then so be it! It‘s not your fault.” Alice pursed her lips as she exchanged glances with Caroline again. They really didn‘t care if Jack renounced Rachel or transferred his Bennet Group shares to her. After all, their equity in that company was insignificant, and the company was already on the verge of bankruptcy. Giving Rachel those shares was no big deal. “Dad, didn‘t you say that Rachel demanded three things from you? You‘ve only mentioned two of those conditions. What‘s the third one?” Alice asked. Jack wanted to speak up, but then he bit it back. It took him a long time before he managed to tell them the third condition. When Alice and Caroline heard it, their faces were laden with shock. “Wait a minute. Are you saying that Rachel wants us to kneel in front of Elisa‘s tomb and beg for her forgiveness?” Alice‘s eyes widened in disbelief. Then, in a shrill voice, she cried,
“No way! Are you serious? Why should I bow to Elisa‘s grave and beg for her forgiveness? There’s no way I‘m going to do that!” Caroline didn‘t expect to hear the third condition. Her face turned pale, and her hands clenched subconsciously. At this time, Jack lowered his head in silence. “Dad, did you… agree to her demands?” Alice came to her senses when she saw the look on Jack‘s face. Upon hearing her inquisitive tone, he was displeased. Talking to Rachel had already ****** her off, but he dared not lose his temper during their conversation. Now that he was back home, he was being interrogated like a criminal, and it made him lose his patience. He was so angry that he sprang to his feet and shouted, “So what if I agreed? If you hadn‘t insisted on going back to the Sullivan Group, I wouldn‘t have yielded to Rachel’s conditions in the first place! Besides, we just need to bow before Elisa‘s tomb. What‘s the big deal? If you don‘t want to do it, then don‘t!” Having said that, Jack went upstairs looking angry.
