Not long after listening to Jack’s story, Kylie fell asleep.
In that moment, Tanya had already arrived at the Drake family’s home. She went to see her father.
“How was it? Did you meet the guy named Jack?” James asked Tanya eagerly as soon as he saw her.
Tanya poured herself half a glass of wine. She swirled it around before taking a sip. Then she said, “Yes, I saw him. He’s quite good-looking and manly too!”
James was speechless. “Did I ask you to admire his face? I asked you to befriend him and keep in touch with him. Think of it as having another friend. Although he’s not as good as the God of War Lana, they’re very similar. The most important thing is that he and Lana are very good friends. Befriending him means we’re on our way to reaching the skills of the God of War.”
Tanya took another sip of her wine. She put her glass down on the table and said solemnly, “Dad, I don’t understand. If we want to fawn over this God of War from Eastfield, why don’t we just fawn over Lana? Even though Jack’s status is quite high, he can’t be better than the God of War, right?”
“You know nothing.” James’s eyes showed a depth of wisdom. He grabbed his own wine glass and poured some for himself. He then sat on the sofa, crossed his legs, and said, “Lana is a very cold woman. Approaching her is no easy task. She’s already giving me face by accepting the God of War mansion I gave her. Moreover, I don’t know what a woman like her desires! I can’t find out how to help her!”
After saying that, James stopped for a moment before he continued,” On the contrary, Jack is a live-in son-in-law. He had no other choice but to become a live-in son-in-law to save his mother’s life back then. He replaced Ivan in the army. Now, he came back and has a daughter. Although his wife has no thoughts of leaving him, the Taylor family still looks down on him!”
Tanya understood her father’s intention after hearing what he had to say. She nodded her head, “I know what you mean now. You mean the God of War Lana doesn’t need our help, but Jack does. As long as we keep in touch with them and help them out more, it’s equivalent to giving
Lana a helping hand!”
James smiled and took a sip from his glass as he started praising her, “You are indeed my daughter. You understand right away. Helping Jack means helping a friend of the God of War. This means that the next time we need Lana’s help, she’ll help us!” Then, he asked again, “Right, you haven’t told me how things went today?”
“Don’t worry, I gave them my name card. I was there right on time. If we were there just a little bit later, I’m afraid we would have lost a very good opportunity! So this was what happened. We went there, and…” Tanya quickly told James what had happened. Then, she said happily, “Jack isn’t an indifferent guy. He even shook my hand to express his gratitude before he left. However, something feels strange…”
“Strange?” James was stunned. “Why do you say so?”
Tanya spoke after thinking for a while. “Logically, a soldier would have calluses on their palms as they often use guns. Despite that, I realized Jack hardly has any calluses on his palms. They were very smooth. It was as though he had never been to the army!”
James was shocked. He thought about it for a moment and said, “Maybe he didn’t go onto the battlefield but worked in the logistic department. Whatever it is, help them as much as possible. Even if he asks for 10 billion dollars, give it to him, alright? I believe that there must be something special between him and Lana.”
The next morning, Ivan eagerly gathered all the Taylor family relatives as they came looking for Old Master Taylor and his father.
