“Thank you, Matt.”
“No thanks are needed. We’re brothers, after all. Stopping Daddy’s marriage to that woman is our objective. We must get rid of her and bring Mommy back!”
With lan hugging him, Matteo swore with his fist clenched tightly.
lan’s resolve was just as strong as his brother’s.
In truth, Matteo’s fall wasn’t an accident. It was part of their plan to stop Sebastian from registering his marriage with Roxanne.
Despite succeeding this time at great cost, they were already concerned about the next step in their plan.
As long as the core issue wasn’t resolved, the scenario would just repeat itself.
Consequently, the brothers frowned at their prospects.
“Our current priority is to stop them from getting registered.”
“What are you proposing?”
“We have to destroy the household register!”
Given his ruthless disposition, Matteo’s suggestions were always extreme.
However, lan knitted his eyebrows instead.
Although it was possible, it wasn’t a permanent solution because a new household register could be easily applied for. Hence, it wasn’t the best option.
“I think we better get Mommy to come back.” After much consideration, lan put forth his opinion.
With his eyes still moist from tears, Matteo looked at lan with anticipation.
lan’s right. Mommy’s return will solve everything.
“However, she doesn’t intend on coming back now. So, what are we going to do? Although Vivi says Mommy is going to buy Grandpa’s house and may return, I don’t think there’s a high chance of that happening.”
“Mmm-hmm. Therefore, we have to set things in motion on our own.”
At the crucial time, lan, who resembled their father more in terms of intelligence and disposition, racked his brains for a solution.
Since lan had gotten involved, Matteo naturally went along with his brother’s plan.
At Wall Street, Moranta.
Within a short period of time, Lance got in contact with Bryan, who agreed to sell the house after a quick negotiation.
“Is it true? Did he agree? That’s wonderful. In that case, you should go back and complete the ownership transfer.” Much to his surprise, Sasha wanted Lance to close the deal at once.
I’m not really familiar with the place. What am I to do if something goes wrong?
Lance wanted to persuade Sasha to go instead.
To his dismay, she rejected his suggestion.
Her excuse was that she was too busy with work and couldn’t take time off.
Is she really busy, or does she not want to go? Perhaps, she just wants to avoid the place.
Left without a choice, Lance booked a flight ticket for himself.
Unexpectedly, Sasha received a call from Jackson that very night.
“Sasha, what are you doing? Are you abandoning everything for the sake of money? Do you not want your family or your children anymore?”
The moment the call connected, Jackson admonished Sasha harshly.
The woman was initially delighted to answer Jackson’s call. After all, this was the first time he had called her since she left.
However, she was stunned by the scolding she received.
“Uncle Jackson, wh-what did I do? Am I not doing that right now?” She was referring to how she was taking care of the Blackwood and the Wand family. That included her father, who was about to be released from prison soon.
However, Jackson continued with his tirade. “Are you? What did you even do? Do you know what happened to your son? Let me tell you, if you don’t do anything, he will probably end up losing his life.”
Jackson’s words were harsh, given that the boys were still so young.
Sasha turned pale at once.
“Uncle Jackson, who do you mean? Wh-what happened to them?”
“What happened? See for yourself.” With that, Jackson ended the call angrily. A few moments later, Sasha received a photo that she frantically opened.
Little did she expect to see a child whose face was swollen all over on her screen.
What was even more terrifying was the fact that there was a hole in his front teeth; it looked as though it had been punched out of him. Her eyes flashed with rage at the sight.
Sasha’s hands began trembling violently.
“Who did this? Tell me. Who did this to my child?”
Losing her mind, she screamed into the phone. The next moment, she was overwhelmed by both panic and murderous intent.
Meanwhile, Lance happened to be standing behind her. When he saw her lose control, he took a peek at the phone and was shocked by what he saw.
“Is that… Matteo? What happened to him? Did he get beaten up? Why does he look terrible? Who hit him? Didn’t Sebastian do anything?”
Just when she was on the verge of fully losing her mind, Sasha received another message from Jackson: Matt said his stepmother did this to him. Given how violent she is right now, what’s going to happen to the brothers in the future? Especially when she has her own kids?
Sasha’s body trembled furiously.
When she heard that her children had been harmed by their stepmother, she was both devastated and filled with hatred at the same time.
