Both Mandy’s best friends – Cecilia and Angel, were so frightened that their legs became shaky. They saw eight hundred thousand dollars in front of them. The strong impact which the scene provided was rather unimaginable.

“My good daughters, can you address me as your father now?” Harvey said while clapping his hands and smiling faintly.

At that moment, Cecilia took a deep breath. She recovered her wits from the great astonishment just now. She then sized Harvey up, and she said contemptuously, “Harvey, don’t assume that I’m unaware of it. It’s Mandy who gave you your pocket money during these three years. You’re such a useless man. How is it possible that you’re able to have eight hundred thousand dollars? I’m afraid that you didn’t get them through proper and legal means.”

Hearing that, Mandy frowned slightly too. She grabbed Harvey’s hand unconsciously and dragged him into the bedroom.

Harvey was puzzled. It was the first time Mandy grabbed his hand out of her own initiative after being married for so many years.
Mandy then closed the door properly.

She spoke softly, “Harvey, tell me the truth. Where did you get that amount of money? Don’t tell me that you went and stole it?”

“You don’t have to worry about it. Even if I wanted to, I wouldn’t be so bold as to do such a thing. I borrowed them from one of my classmates.” Harvey sighed and said.

The previous night, he claimed that he was the CEO of York Enterprise, but no one believed him. So now he did not have to say that either.
Besides, Harvey had considered that carefully.

If Mandy knew about his true identity, it might not be a good thing. The relationship between them might be much more complicated.

Harvey did not want Mandy to accept him because of his identity. He hoped that Mandy could accept the ordinary man he was one day.
“Classmate? What kind of classmate?” Mandy frowned.

“We’ve been married to each other for so long. I never saw any of your classmates give you a call. Don’t assume that I’m unaware of it. You once wanted to borrow money from your friends to go and see the doctor. You made several calls, but nobody bothered about you.”

Harvey was upset. It was true indeed. The moment he lost his identity as the heir of the Yorks, he understood the cruelty of society. Those so-called friends from his past treated him as some kind of diseased person.

After they received his call, they were even reluctant to be perfunctory to him. Some of them even blocked his social contact.

Harvey gritted his teeth and forced himself to endure the pain. He walked for a few steps. When he reached the bedroom door, he turned around and said, “It’s my university classmate, and he’s doing investment. He owned me a favor in the past. Now he lent me the money as a form of compensation. Just take the money and use it!”

“What kind of favor did he own you?” Mandy was filled with disbelief.

Harvey mocked at himself. “Don’t you know about my capabilities? When I was studying in the university, I always served the rich heir well who stayed in the same dorm as me. I served them their food, and I even helped them wash their clothes and cook for them. Certainly, those were some kind of hard work even if I didn’t take credits for that.”

When Harvey said something like that, Mandy believed him. It was because Harvey was indeed quite good at doing the house chores. If he really served the rich heir well, it was reasonable if the rich heir lent him some money.

But hearing that from Harvey, Mandy was slightly upset. After hesitating for a short while, she said, “Don’t worry. When my company is back on its feet, I ‘ll return the money to you as soon as possible.”

“Alright.” Harvey did not reject her. If he claimed that she did not have to return the money to him, Mandy would get suspicious, and he could not explain that to her.

When he came to the living room, both Angel and Cecilia had left. They might find it hard to bear it if they were to address Harvey as their father.

Xynthia played with the money and threw it here and there excitedly. She seemed to be playing with toys. Lilian had calmed herself down now. She sat down on the sofa properly and drank her tea in composure.

Noticing Harvey returned to the living room, Lilian laughed coldly and said, “Don’t think that you’re able to get the others to listen to you in our family since you got lucky and managed to borrow eight hundred thousand dollars. You lucky bastard! Let me tell you! Not by a long chalk! If it weren’t for such a useless person like you, Mandy wouldn’t be bullied in the company today!”

Harvey was stunned. ‘I’ve asked them to give my wife a signed contract. How is it possible that she’s being bullied?’

Mandy walked out of the bedroom. She said softly, “Mom, just drop it. It’s not Harvey’s fault. Grandpa was unfair.”

Lilian said coldly, “How could I not blame him? You’ re clearly the one who brought the fifty-milliondollars contract back today. But what about the consequences? When it came to your grandpa, it became that bastard-Zack’s contribution! He claimed that he endured the humiliation and went through with the hardship for it!”

“You can bear that, but I can’t!”

“Harvey, let me tell you. If it’s not because of a useless, live-in son-in-law like you, how would Senior Zimmer and Zack’s family be so bold to bully Mandy?”

“I’m warning you. If you don’t want to stay here anymore, go and get the divorce procedure done tomorrow. Without you, maybe Mandy’s business could be developed in a smoother and better way. Maybe she could even find herself a better husband.”

Harvey frowned and said, “Mom, you got Mr. Xander for Mandy before. But it seems like he’s not that good either.”

“So how is it any of your business given what kind of son-in-law I found? If you’re capable, go and get Senior Zimmer to change his mind. If you’re really that good, I’ll let you stay in our home!” Lilian sneered.

Harvey thought for a moment, ‘I still think that Zack can’t get the contract.’
