Lord Moore nodded before he said, “Yes, the wealthy and powerful families believe in Feng Shui and the eight characters. This is the essence of our ancestry. As for the dregs in Southeast Asia, I really do not have any respect for them whatsoever.”
Donald said, “From this point of view, it seems as though we really cannot find any clues leading to this matter at all. In this case, it is not easy for us to find the culprit behind this incident!”
After that, Donald clasped his fists together before he said, “Uncle Moore, Sean and I will be staying in Aurous Hill for a few more days. We want to stay here to investigate and look for any relevant clues about my son’s sudden illness. Uncle Moore, if it is not inconvenient for you, can we stay at your house for a few days?”
At this time, Lord Moore smiled before he said, “The Moore family has always had a good friendship with the Webb family. Why are you being so polite with me over this small matter? Since you are already here, I will naturally do my best to host both of you. I will ask the servants to clean up two of the guest rooms for you later.”
The Moore family mansion was huge, and there were more than a dozen rooms on the first floor itself. There were also plenty of guest rooms in the mansion. Therefore, it was not too much trouble for Lord Moore to allow Donald and Sean to stay at their house temporarily for a few days.
Donald was overjoyed when he heard this and quickly thanked him. “Thank you for your kindness, Uncle Moore!”
After that, Donald pulled Sean who had been silent all this while to his side before he smiled and said, “Uncle Moore, I haven’t officially introduced my son to you. This is Sean, the next generation heir to the Webb family in the future.”
Sean hurriedly bowed as he said respectfully, “Junior Sean would like to show my respect to you, Grandpa Moore!”
Lord Moore smiled and nodded slightly before he said, “It seems as though your eldest son and the grandson of the Webb family is indeed very talented and smart!”
Donald laughed before he said, “Uncle Moore, you are too polite. In fact, both your grandchildren are also giants amongst men!”
Then, Donald sighed before he said, “Especially Jasmine. I have not seen her in so many years and I almost could not recognize her when she visited us at the hospital yesterday! She is truly becoming more beautiful and mature by the day.”
Lord Moore smiled and said, “Jasmine might look very mature and capable, but she is still just a little girl at heart.”
Donald nodded before he deliberately asked, “Uncle Moore, Jasmine is already of marriageable age. I wonder if you have already found a good husband for her?”
At this time, Lord Moore suddenly thought of Charlie. Unfortunately, Charlie was already the son-in-law of the Wilson family and the husband of Claire. Moreover, it seemed as though his granddaughter had not made any substantial progress. Therefore, he could only say, “I have not found a husband for Jasmine yet. I am not in a hurry to marry her off because she is still young anyway.”
Donald hurriedly replied, “Uncle Moore, truthfully, you should be anxious about this matter. After all, time flies by very quickly. If you don’t worry about it this year, you will worry about it next year and the year after that. One day, you will realize that it is already too late, and then you will rush to look for a son-in-law, wait for them to fall in love, talk about marriage, get married, and when she should conceive a baby! Jasmine might already be thirty years old by then!”
Lord Moore nodded in agreement before he said, “Well, what you said does make sense. I will take it to heart and keep it in mind. I will also sit down with Jasmine and persuade her to start planning for her marriage earlier.”
In truth, Lord Moore was thinking that he would use this set of rhetoric theories to try and persuade Jasmine to take the initiative to pursue and attack Charlie as soon as possible instead of wasting any more precious time.
On the other hand, Donald thought that he had already set the groundwork for himself and could go straight to the topic now.
Therefore, he said confidently, “Uncle Moore, since Jasmine and Sean are both about the same age and can be regarded as good friends who are of marriageable age, I wonder if you would like to become in-laws with the Webb family?”
After that, Donald smiled because he was confident that he had already won Lord Moore over.
He felt that after listening to his persuasion, Lord Moore would definitely agree to his marriage proposal without any hesitation.
At this time, Sean was also staring at Lord Moore nervously as he waited for Lord Moore to agree to the marriage proposal.
Unexpectedly, as soon as Lord Moore heard Donald’s words, he blurted out his answer immediately.
“No!” Then, he emphasized once again, “Absolutely not!”
