Kenneth was so pissed off right now, and Wendy was a convenient tool for him to vent his anger out so that he didn’t burn himself in the wrath of fury!
As soon as they returned to the Wilson family villa, Kenneth dragged Wendy out of the car and rushed into the house.
Christopher, Hannah, and Lady Wilson were sitting in the living room. When the parents saw Kenneth and Wendy rushing upstairs straight away without greeting them, a tinge of awkwardness hovered on their faces.
Lady Wilson cleared her throat and said, “You guys should be grateful that Kenneth is fond of Wendy. Stop overthinking it.”
Christopher nodded reluctantly and answered, “Mom, I’m not overthinking it. I just feel a little awkward.”
Lady Wilson chided disdainfully, “What’s so awkward about it? You’re getting paid for it, aren’t you? The five million dollars that Kenneth gave to Wendy, is it in your hands now?”
“Yes, mom, it’s with me.”
Lady Wilson sighed and softened her tone a bit. “See? If Wendy and Kenneth are getting more and more intimate, he may even give you fifty million dollars! The money will go into your pocket by then, right? Think about it.”
Christopher felt a sense of relief inside him upon his mother’s remark.
The sole reason why they had approved of the relationship was because of money, pure and simple.
Kenneth had invested 10 million dollars in the Wilson Group and had even given an extra five million dollars to Wendy as her pocket money. It was a lot of money, and this was just the beginning. Over time, he would have invested even more money in the Wilson family.
All the awkwardness and uneasiness dispersed from Christopher’s thought. He pulled his wife back to their room on the first floor.
As soon as he entered the room, he said anxiously, “Darling, remember the ordinary residential area that we saw at the Thompson First the other day? The down payment is five or six million, and we’ve only managed to save enough for the down payment but not the renovations and furniture. But now, with Wendy’s five million and our money, it’s more than enough for us to buy the Thompson First house!”
Hannah was thrilled at first, but very soon, she sulked in dismay. “No, I don’t want to live in the ordinary residential area. Jacob’s family and Charlie the loser will be staying in the villa area. Do you want me to live outside of them and be their guards? No way!”
“Hmm, what about this? We have nearly ten million dollars now, we’ll talk to Wendy tomorrow and ask her to persuade Kenneth while they’re having a good time and see if he can sponsor us another few million dollars. Then, we’ll have enough money for the down payment of the villa!”
Although Thompson First’s villas cost hundreds of millions of dollars per unit, the prices of other villas in Aurous Hill were not too high. A single-family villa was normally around 20 to 30 million dollars, so even after deducting the 40% down payment, they would still have enough money in hand.
However, renovations and furnishings were a huge expense that might need an additional three to five million dollars which the couple couldn’t afford. However, if they could get Kenneth to sponsor them a little, the problem would be solved!
Hannah shrieked a little excitedly and said, “Hey, do you think Kenneth will subsidize us a little more?”
Christopher chuckled. “I think he will for the sake of Wendy. He seems to be quite fond of her, don’t you think?”
Hannah nodded, a gleeful smile pasted on her face. “Actually, from the looks of it, Kenneth is a much better companion for Wendy. At least he is more generous and lavish than Gerald, that bastard. After so many years of being together, our Wendy even aborted a child for him, but he never gave Wendy any pocket money!”
Christopher nodded and sighed furiously. “Yes, you’re right! The White family are crooks, liars, and bastards!”
Hannah waved her hand in contempt. “Argh, forget about them. They’ll pay for what they did to us and our baby girl. Let’s talk about the villa instead. There are quite a lot of villas in Aurous Hill, why don’t we drive around tomorrow to take a look?”
“Okay! Let’s go to the Golden Crown Park first. I heard that their villas are pretty nice!”
As they were talking about the villas, suddenly, there were violent noises from upstairs.
