No. 1 Supreme Warrior – Chapter 0894

“Really? I don’t know what to say about Nash White… Sure, he sacrificed a lot for his family, but he’s not a responsible father!”

Selena heaved a sigh after she heard that. “Mother, did Nash at least give you money when he told you to leave?” she asked Joan. “Did he know that you were carrying Jack?”

Joan’s lips curved into a wry smile. “He never dared to tell Lily when Jack was born, but he did arrange a house for us. He’d come and visit us from time to time and give us some money, but when Jack was about five or six years old, he finally mustered up the courage to tell Lily everything… And she was absolutely livid. She, along with members of the Lagorio and White families, came and chased us away. She told us to get away as far as we could.”

Jack’s expression hardened. “But after so many years, he managed to accumulate great power for himself,” explained Joan. “He didn’t know where we went after we left, but I believe he could’ve found us very quickly if he wanted to. Sadly, he didn’t.”

A cold, bitter smile appeared on Jack’s face. “I went to the White family residence five years ago, when my mother needed one million for her surgery, but I got nothing even after kneeling before them for an entire night. Instead, a butler came out and told me that Nash White wanted me gone. They shamed me so badly. From that moment on, I told myself that I didn’t have a father anymore.”

Joan took it all in. “I hated your father for a time too, Jack,” she said earnestly, “but I cleared up some matters with the old man yesterday. Your father isn’t as heartless as you think he is.”

Jack was stunned for a moment before he asked, “What do you mean? Are you saying that he tried to look for us?”

“He didn’t, but that old man is the butler, and he said that your father always got his subordinate to give us one million dollars every year. We, on the other hand, knew nothing about it.”

Joan gave a bitter smile. “Besides, your father didn’t know anything that had happened that night,” she continued. “He didn’t mean it. I guess that Lily knew about it, so she told everyone to keep it a secret. I suspect that she’s the reason why we didn’t receive any money.”

“What a dangerous woman!”

Only then did Jack realize that it was all a series of grave misunderstandings.

“If he got someone to give you money every year, it seems like your father still loves and cares for you. He probably was helpless among his own family.”

Selena’s expression crumpled as she was overwhelmed with emotions. She never imagined that Jack’s father was still alive, that they had such a long history behind them.

“So you’re telling me that the fat woman who came out when I knelt before that entrance wasn’t a butler for the White’ family?”

Jack went silent, unable to comprehend the situation, as he pondered. “But that old man told me to go back that day,” he said, “something about monitoring the overall situation. I don’t even know what he’s talking about.”

“This is what happened: The Lagorio family got into a fight with someone from another family, and many of their men were either killed or injured. Their power weakened. Instead, the White family has grown stronger,” Joan explained. “Your father took charge in order to seize power for himself.

“Your grandparents are both dead, and your father is gravely ill. The butler said that he wouldn’t last three months, and he hoped that you’d go back to see him. He even wishes for you to inherit the White family’s business.”
