At the same time, Hendric, who was on a business trip, took a flight back to the country and made a da

When he saw that Xavier and Melissa were fine in the VIP patient room, a wave of relief washed over h
“D–Dad, you‘re f–
finally here.” When she saw her father, Melissa burst into tears as her fragile heart was crushed after h
aving her lege injured.
At the sight of her tear–
stained face, his heart throbbed in pain. The family had always treated her as the apple of their eyes, y
et she was now injured.
Placing his briefcase aside, he strode over and lifted the quilt to take a look at her condition. “How do y
ou feel? What did the doctor say?”
“Sobs. I–I have to rest for at least three months. It hurts, Dad,” whined the pale–
faced girl whose voice was
choked up. The sheer sight of her forlorn state would have caused anyone to feel sorry for her.
Attempting to comfort her, Hendric patted her shoulder. “As long as you‘re alright. Don‘t worry about it.
You‘ll recover soon. Speaking about it, the Kings Family have gone overboard this time!”
Having said that, he glanced
at Xavier with an icy gaze before making his way toward his bed. Ever since Hendric had entered the r
oom, Xavier had been phubbing with his head low in a languid manner. In truth, he actually listened
attentively to the conversation just now.
They were all Hendric‘s children, yet he only had his eyes on a few of them and there would never be r
oom for Xavier.
Such thoughts fleeted across Xavier‘s mind before a slap landed on his face
at the very next second. Feeling the stinging pain on his cheek, he looked sideways.
last night‘s incident, not a part of his body was free of blemishes. He was badly bruised; even his face
was beaten black and blue.
Despite that, neither did Hendric comfort him nor did he ask for the cause. Instead, he straight up lande
d a slap on Xavier‘s face.
“Dad, what are you doing? He had nothing to do with this.” Even Melissa was taken
aback by the sudden hit that she voiced our her brother‘s innocence
“Hmphille is your incompetent brother who can‘t take good care of yout” Hendric‘s chest heaved heavily
Hearing that, Xavier snorted in ridicule. Though his check hurt, he did not lift a finger to massage it; he
poked it with his tongue instead. As he flashed a contemptuous smile, his face was glaring with disgust.
What a ‘good‘ father I have here.
“Dad, it‘s not Xavier‘s fault. It‘s all because of that b*tch, Veronica Murphy!”
She and Veronica got along well at the beginning, but the relationship took a turn after she had witness
ed Veronica‘s ruthless side with her own eyes. The seedling of hostility sprouted in her overnight.
“It‘s her! It‘s all because of her! She took the gun and hurt us! D–
Dad, Xavier is innocent!” Melissa explained while tears were wetting her cheeks.
“Innocent, my foot. It‘s not like you don‘t know that your silly brother likes Veronica. Now look at himself

dare they touch my daughter! They‘re not getting away from this!” Hendric slammed the table in a fit of
The silent Xavier finally piped up, “Why don‘t you ask your filial daughter what she has done?”
Even if he cared for his sister, he knew well that he shouldn‘t lose his sense
of right and wrong. This time, Melissa was the one in the wrong.
“I don‘t give a fig about the truth! Anyone who dares to lay a finger on my daughter deserves to die!” As
the seething ire got the best of him, Hendric pointed at Xavier. “Stay away from that b*tch. I will make s
ure to tear her into pieces!”
At that moment, Xavier could feel the murderous resentment bearing in Hendric to his bones. He didn‘t
stop the man, though. Whether it was the disappointment directed at Melissa or Hendric–
or it could‘ve been both–he remained silent until the end.
Beneath its deceptive tranquility, there was an insidious storm raging in Bloomstead.
Veronica had the liberty to wander anywhere she fancied without bumping into the reporters, she had a
strong feeling that something was yoing to happen.
Her biggest worry would be her adoptive parents, who were currently residing
in the countryside. Someone might hurt them. She promised herself that she would leave Matthew and
stay out of the struggle between the rich and powerful. However, she
couldn‘t sever the complicated ties with the Kings Family, though she seemed to have had nothing to d

The distressed couple tried to provide solace to Tiffany, yet those words were like a thrusting knife that p
