“That seems to be it!” After Xena analyzed everything, Ben nodded. “It doesn’t matter. Although brother-in-law seems to be a little useless, he still knows how to save his dignity. He closed the door, nobody saw anything so there’s nothing to be shameful about. Anyways, it’s a good thing that our house doesn’t need to be demolished!”
“Yes. It’s a good thing that it does not need to be demolished. Two months from now, when your sister gets her salary, let’s buy a house!” Fiona smiled and nodded. After she thought about it, she said, “By the way, your sister is going to work tomorrow. Let’s go buy some food and do some shopping. I want to buy some better clothes!”
“Yes, mum, you have money now. Don’t you still have eight hundred thousand from the money Jack gave you? You have to buy some nice clothes. You have been so tired these few years! You should buy something good and treat yourself well!” Ben happily suggested.
Soon, Fiona, Ben, Andrew, and Xena went out on a shopping trip.
In the courtyard, Selena was accompanying Kylie, who was playing not far from her. After a while, Jack came out from the shower and had already changed into a set of fresh clothes. Although the clothes seemed to be a little old, it still felt refreshing.
“Husband, what did you talk about with Mister Howard inside? Did you really kneel and plead?” Selena was silent for a while before asking Jack.
Jack was embarrassed, smiled bitterly and then said, “Honey, do you think I’m such a person? We only talked about some things on the battlefield, he regrets that we did not meet earlier. It so happens that we have a mutual friend in the camp, so he gave me face and helped us!”
“You know such a powerful character like the marshal? You’re really amazing!” She obviously believed Jack’s words and said excitedly.
“Of course, Mister Howard is great. He is a marshal and I admire him!” Jack smiled lightly and then said.
“I had no idea that he is a marshal and is so powerful. No wonder Ken acted so ruthlessly when he came just now! However, he had no choice but to leave when the marshal asked him to!” Selena laughed gently. Her laugh was full of life like the spring breeze. Jack was almost dumbfounded by her gentleness and beauty.
“Honey, your smile is captivating. The only thing I can think of right now is kissing you!” Jack looked at the beauty in front of him. He could not help but say, “No wonder so many rich men like my wife. You being the number-one beauty in Eastfield is really not an overstatement. I must have done something good in my previous life to have you as my wife!”
Selena felt shy and at the same time thought Jack was really sweet after hearing his affectionate words.
“Sometimes I think you’re a little dumb, so I didn’t expect you to say such sweet words!” Selena glanced at Jack and pursed her sexy red lips.
“Bad news. Young Master Hugo is coming with a bunch of people!” She gasped as soon as she finished speaking. A group of people was at the door and many of them were carrying watermelon knives in their hands.
