Cynthia was stunned.
As Yue Lao, she urgently hoped that Isla and Alex would be able to achieve their aim. It was one of the necessary steps for Alex to propose marriage to the Sullivan family. However, no matter how anxious he was, he had to be careful when he spoke and did things. Before Xena allowed them to interact, Alex had made it clear. It was typical to alert the enemy, and it would be strange if they did not touch the wall.
Isla was also confused. She reached out and grabbed Alex’s waist and said in a low voice, “Do you want to die? What nonsense are you talking about? Who has fallen in love with you?”
Relatively speaking, Xena was the calmest of the three.
Xena just frowned and then sneered. “Alex, I knew that you didn’t give up on Lala. Since you transferred Gold Stone to Lala and ran to Gold Stone almost every day, I have basically confirmed this.”
Alex was not surprised by Xena’s calm response. He replied in the same calm tone, “I know what you’re thinking. People with discerning eyes can see the relationship between me and Isla, and sooner or later, I will make it public. So I don’t think it’s necessary to pretend that you don’t know it. To be honest, I transferred Gold Stone to Isla, and I don’t intend to take it back, because that is our love token, and it can also be said to be one of the betrothal gifts. Vice President Xena, as long as you can accept me as your son-in-law, I will also send the villa as a betrothal gift.”
Before Xena said anything, Isla became anxious. She pinched Alex’s waist again and said eagerly, “It’s not over yet, is it? You’re still a big boss. Don’t you know that you should pay attention to the occasion when you talk? If you dare to talk nonsense again, I’m really angry!”
Cynthia also hurried to the front of Alex and reminded him softly, “I admire your courage, but courage and recklessness are not the same concept! You are usually very smart and know what to do. What’s wrong with you today? Are you too happy because you have become the big boss?”
Alex waved his hand, gave Isla and Cynthia an affirmative look, and continued to say to Xena, “Vice president Xena, you may not know me very well. Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am the second largest shareholder of Hengkang Pharmaceutical Company, occupying 45% of the shares. I am still the legal representative of Qingyun Media, taking 51 percent of the shares. There are still some small industries, I will not say. Anyway, my total value is about 60 billion. In the last year, the richest person in the city, the boss of Hengkang Pharmaceutical Company, the total value of my uncle-in-law, is 530 billion. Of course, there is a possibility that he has a secret deposit that outsiders don’t know…”
“You…” Xena was extremely shocked. “You have so much money? Is it true?”
“I admit that I have a lot of shortcomings, but I can’t boast. Vice President Xena, I have found my biological parents, and I’m not short of money. It’s impossible for me to be your live-in son-in-law. But as long as I get married to Isla, the two of our family will be inseparable… Do you understand what I mean?”
Xena fell into deep thought with a sullen face.
Isla thought that Xena was angry and she was very disappointed with Alex’s performance today. She got up and was about to leave.
Cynthia also felt that Alex had lost his composure today, but she still persuaded Isla earnestly.
Just as Cynthia failed to dissuade her and was about to leave with Isla, Xena finally raised her head and said to Alex with a poker face, “Do you think that I’m in charge of Lala’s marriage purely for money? Do you think that I want to take back Gold Stone and the villa just for myself?”
Alex was a little dumbfounded. “Vice President Xena, what do you want to say? I don’t understand what you mean.”
“I’ve already figured it out. Lala’s father is right. Lala has grown up, and she can make her own decisions for her lifetime. Alex, don’t think that you can buy everything just because you have money. At the very least, you can forget about buying love. Even if you give all your assets to me, don’t think about forcing me to marry Lala to you. I won’t interfere in her marriage again.”
“Vice President Xena, are… are you serious?”
When Alex heard the first half of the words, he thought that Xena had taken the wrong medicine today.
It was not until he heard the latter that he suddenly realized that there was such a shameless person in the world!
It was no exaggeration to say that Xena’s thick skin refreshed Alex’s cognition.
In addition to being shocked, Alex couldn’t help but think of a part. Someone asked, “A young and beautiful girl who is a poor girl and an old rich divorced woman, which one are you willing to marry?” The person who was asked answered seriously, “It doesn’t matter if you have money or not, mainly I like older people.”
When Alex accidentally saw this joke, he was amused.
Now the joke had become a living reality, but Alex couldn’t laugh. On the contrary, he felt very sad. He felt sad for Xena, who was so vain that she had no bottom line. Fortunately, although Isla was the flesh that fell from Xena’s body, it was mainly inherited from Victor’s character.
Like Alex, Cynthia was speechless about Xena and did not know what to say.
Isla was used to this, and her focus was different. She approached Xena in a daze and asked expectantly, “Mom, is what you just said true? You really don’t be interfere my marriage?”
Xena nodded. “Lala, I’ve thought it through since your father passed away, but I haven’t told you.”
“Thank you, Mom! Even if you don’t interfere anymore, I will think about it carefully. I won’t joke about my happiness.”
“Yes, I believe in your judgment and respect your choice.”
“Mom, if…” Isla pursed her lips and looked at Alex. After hesitating for a few seconds, she gathered up her courage and continued, “I mean if, if I really get together with Alex, can you accept him as your son-in-law with your current relationship?”
“Silly child, isn’t what Mom said straightforward?”
Xena was a little anxious. The reason why she deliberately turned a corner just now to hand over the choice to Isla and accepted Alex’s proposal tactfully was that she wanted to save some face for herself. She was really embarrassed to admit that she was willing to accept Alex’s son-in-law for the sake of money.
But Isla was too excited and thought that she had heard it wrong, so she wanted to confirm it again.
Hearing this, Cynthia became anxious and said to Isla, “What’s going on? Why do I feel that you and Alex are weird today? Auntie means that no matter who you like, she won’t object, including Alex. In other words, Auntie has agreed to your marriage.”
“I see. Thank you, Mom!” Isla finally felt at ease. She grabbed Xena’s hand and said excitedly, “Mom, don’t worry. I will discipline him well in the future and ask him to be filial to you with me. If he doesn’t listen to me, I… I will separate from him!”
Xena nodded repeatedly. “Okay, okay, okay. Mom knows that my Lala is the most filial…”
Cynthia found it incredible that Isla and Xena were snuggling together.
Who would have thought that this mother-daughter pair, who had a deep understanding of each other and were deeply touched, had once severed their mother-and-daughter relationship?
It was really a vast world!
Feeling Cynthia who had opened her eyes, she secretly sighed with emotion. She stood up in a daze, called Alex to the balcony, and gave him a thumbs-up without hesitation. “I thought you were crazy today. You talked big and talked nonsense. But now, I am convinced of your magical operation today…”
Alex smiled awkwardly. “At the beginning, I was indeed a little impulsive because I was angry. Fortunately, Vice President Xena is not an ordinary person and was not angered by me. Otherwise, when I woke up, I would definitely regret it. Let’s not talk about anything else; I think you and Isla will be disappointed with me.”
“I’m very curious. Why didn’t you change your mind and continue to propose after you woke up?”
“Because it’s hard to change people’s nature. In the past, I didn’t think Vice President Xena was easy to deal with, because I didn’t find the right way to deal with her. Since I found her seven inches, I’ve been grabbing her by the hand every time and holding her tightly…”
