Chapter 375: I Don't Love Her
"Unfair?" Old Master Shen looked at him in puzzlement, "Why?"
Maddox pondered for a moment and then said slowly, "I don't love her. I can't bring her happiness.”
Old Master Shen laughed. "Love can be nurtured. If you love Miss Yayoi, you can also love Wendy.”
“Impossible.” Maddox said confidently, "I only love Yayoi. I only want to marry her in my life.”
The smile on Old Master Shen's face gradually subsided. He seemed more serious and his gaze
became sharper. He asked in a deep voice, "Maddox, are you pissing me off?"
Maddox curled up his lips slightly, "Grandpa, I don't want to make you angry. I am just showing my
"But your attitude pisses me off." Old Master Shen said coldly. "Now that you have showed your
attitude, then I will also show mine. As long as I am still alive, I will definitely not let that woman be a
member of the Shen family”
Old Master Shen had said this before, so Maddox was very calm. He only laughed softly, "Grandpa, we
both have showed our attitudes clearly. By the way, Yayoi and I truly love each other. If you can't accept
her, I have no choice but to leave home.”
Old Master Shen narrowed his eyes, revealing a sharp light. “Young man, are you threatening me?"
Maddox smiled. "No, Grandpa, I'm not threatening you. I'm just expressing my determination to you”
*"You...." Old Master Shen was annoyed by Maddox's attitude. His chest suddenly hurt, and Old Master
Shen quickly covered his chest with hands.
Maddox panicked at first, but he quickly calmed down. Looking at Old Master Shen's face that twisted
out of pain, Maddox said with a mocking smile. "Grandpa, you don't have to pretend illness. I know that
you're pretending to be sick to force me to compromise.’
Old Master Shen looked up at him with pain and disappointment.
At that moment, Wendy walked in. Seeing Old Master Shen clutching his chest in pain, she hurriedly
rushed over, and opened the drawer of the bedside table to take out a bottle of pills. She untied the lid,
poured several pills on Old Master Shen's palm, and then poured a glass of water for him. After Old
Master Shen took the pills, she quickly fed him some water, and then patted his chest to make him feel
Noticing Wendy's behaviors, Maddox frowned and subconsciously asked, "What are the pills for?"
Wendy looked up at him and answered truthfully, "For angina pectoris."
“Angina pectoris?” Maddox frowned and turned to look at Old Master Shen, who had already felt better.
"Grandpa, when did you develop angina pectoris?”
Old Master Shen coldly glanced at him and snorted, “I develop angina pectoris because of you!"
Maddox shut his mouth and stopped talking.
Wendy hesitated for a moment and then said, “Maddox, I heard what you said just now outside the
door. If you don't want to marry me, I won't force you...”
Maddox looked at her in surprise, while Old Master Shen stopped her excitedly, "Wendy, what are you
Wendy smiled at Old Master Shen and pleaded, "Grandpa, calm down please. Let me explain, okay?"
Looking at her pleading expression, Old Master Shen helplessly sighed, “Alright, go ahead.”
"Thank you, Grandpa." Wendy smiled and then looked at Maddox. She did not conceal her love for him
in her eyes. She smiled bitterly and said, "Maddox, I know you don't love me and probably will never
fall in love with me. Therefore, I don't want to force you to marry me. If we get married, not only you
and I, but also grandpa and the entire Shen Family will live in great pain. I am not a legitimate member
of Shen family. My grandfather saved grandpa Old Master Shen's life. Grandpa Old Master Shen pitied
me and brought me home. In fact, Grandpa Old Master Shen has repaid my grandfather by raising me
Wendy looked at Old Master Shen with tears in her eyes. She pursed her lips and continued with a
smile, "I owe the Shen family a debt of gratitude. I'll pay it back. I can break the engagement between
us and give you freedom.”
“Wendy, you don't owe the Shen family anything." After Old Master Shen heard her words, he felt more
pitiful for her, because she was so sensible.
Maddox did not expect such a reversal of her attitude. He did not know what to do and could only stare
at her in shock.
The faint sadness in her eyes actually made him somewhat guilty. When they were young, they got on
well with each other. She always called him "Maddox" and followed him anywhere. After she went
abroad, they contacted less and less.
After she returned home, they had alienated a lot. And because of the engagement, he didn't even
treat her politely.
It seemed that he was too unkind.
“Wendy, are you serious?" Maddox asked doubtfully.
Wendy replied with a smile, "Maddox, I mean it.”
Maddox had a mixed feeling when he heard she called him Maddox in the same way as before. He
stared at her deeply for a long time before he said, “Thank you, Wendy.”
Wendy raised her lips and smiled. Then, she lowered her head to hide the sadness in her eyes.
Only in this way will he be nice to her. She was very sad.
They reached an agreement, but Old Master Shen didn't agree with them at all. "Wendy, you don't have
to do so. In my heart, you are my granddaughter-in-law, the only one.”
"Grandpa...." Wendy looked at Old Master Shen helplessly, then at Shen Maddox.
Maddox smiled helplessly and patiently persuaded him, "Grandpa, now Wendy is willing to do this, why
are you so stubborn? Do you really want us to live unhappily together?”
Old Master Shen glared at him coldly. He was as stubborn as ever. "I told you love can be nurtured. As
long as you marry Wendy, you will know what a good girl she is. You will find that she is much better
“Grandpa, how can I make it clear to you? No matter how good Wendy is, I don't love her. I only love
Yayoi. Yayoi is the only one I love in the world.”
Before they got angry again, Wendy hurriedly said, "Maddox, go back to your work now. I'll persuade
She made Maddox a sign to leave.
Maddox looked at Old Master Shen angrily, and then quickly walked out of that suffocating room.
