The Formidable Son-In-Law: The Charismatic Lucas Gray Webnovel - Chapter 941
Chapter 941: Cold-Blooded and Heartless
Florence’s eyes widened in disbelief. She couldn’t believe those words came out of her father’s mouth.
Just now, all the Howards were accusing and blaming her. They even wished they could kick her out of the family immediately. Despite feeling sad, she didn’t have any other emotional fluctuations.
But her father actually put all the blame on her and even said that he would sever ties with her, expel her from the family, and let Hades deal with her.
What he said made Florence’s blood freeze!
Even Hades looked surprised as he asked sinisterly, “Isn’t this woman your biological daughter? Can you bear to leave her at my mercy?”
Felix nodded without hesitation. “Yes. Although she’s indeed my daughter, she’s brought disaster to the Howards. For the sake of my family, I can only expel her from the family!
“After we remove her from the family, she and her son-in-law will no longer have anything to do with the Howards. You can do whatever you want to them, but I hope that you won’t vent your anger on the rest of the Howards.”
His eyes were extremely cold, and his words were extremely indifferent and heartless.
This scene was like a dagger stabbing deep into Florence’s heart.
Tears welled up in Florence’s eyes as she asked through gritted teeth. “Father… in your heart, have you never treated me as your daughter?”
Felix stared at her coldly. “How dare you have the cheek to ask me that? If it wasn’t because of you and your son-in-law, how could the Howards be in so much trouble?
“Also, don’t think I’m unaware that you’ve hated me for a long time. You should already know about that man, and maybe you’ve been thinking about how to kill me to avenge him.
“At this point, what right do you have to say that I don’t care about our father-and-daughter relationship?”
Felix spoke mercilessly and exposed what Florence had been trying hard to hide.
Florence felt like a sharp knife suddenly stabbed in her chest, putting her in so much pain that her face turned deathly pale.
“So, you already knew…” She laughed self-deprecatingly before suddenly raising her head to glower at Felix with a burning gaze. She shouted, “You were the one who did that to me first!
“I used to look up to you and respect you as my father, but what about you?
“For the sake of the family’s interests. You kept trying to stop us from being together and insisting that I marry a man from another wealthy family. Later, you even killed him!
“And you deliberately hid this information from me, making me look like a fool for thinking that he abandoned me and my child. I even hated him for so many years! You must have been so proud to see me kneeling in front of you and begging for forgiveness while hating him. At the time, did you ever think that I was your daughter?
“Later, you still used me as a pawn and made me marry another man. Did you ever treat me as your daughter?
“Since you’ve treated me like this, am I supposed to continue treating you as a loving father and let you use me? Shouldn’t I hate you?”
Florence stopped hiding the hatred and grievances in her heart. She lashed out at Felix with her face covered in the tears she had been holding back for years.
But after Felix heard Florence’s complaints, his expression didn’t change at all. He merely said coldly, “You’re a daughter of the Howards, and the purpose of your existence is to obey the family’s arrangements obediently and contribute your value to the family! What am I raising you for if you’re useless to the family?
“As for that man, you’re the one who killed him!
“You’ve long known about the family rules, so you have known that your only choice was to marry a scion of another wealthy family for a marriage alliance. But you insisted on disobeying me and eloping with that man. In the end, the person who killed that man is you, not me!
Felix’s cold and indifferent words were like a hammer slamming into Florence’s head, causing her to be so dizzy that she could barely stand.
How… was this possible?!
Clearly, Felix was the heartless man who had ordered someone to kill Drew Cruise, yet he pushed the blame onto her!
“So… when you said that as long as I could salvage the relationship between Lucas and the Howards within ten days, you would let me become helmsman. Was that a lie too?” Florence stared intently into Felix’s eyes with clenched teeth.
With a contemptuous sneer, Felix said, “Do you think that the Howards, one of the eight top families of DC, would hand over the position of helmsman to a woman? How embarrassed would the Howards be if word about that got out?”
Florence stumbled forward and almost fell to the floor, her mind almost turning blank.
At this point, she finally realized that right from the beginning, Felix had never thought of handing over the position of helmsman to her because she was just his pawn.
Felix had only made a verbal promise to tempt her into slogging her guts out to do whatever he wanted her to.
Even if she really completed those matters, he would have a hundred reasons to demand more from her. But in the end, he would never give her the position of helmsman.
He clearly knew what she wanted the most, but he used it as bait to make use of her!
It was just like how Felix didn’t hesitate to break her and Drew Cruise up to get her to agree to a marriage alliance. He had even killed Drew.
Felix had said that he could allow her to return to the Howards on the condition that she agreed to marry into the Lambert family. Later, he even controlled her to seize all the Lamberts’ assets.
What he was doing now was also for the sake of the family’s interests.
Florence smiled self-deprecatingly, “It turns out that everything you said to me is fake!
“You said that you wanted me to find a way to resolve the conflict between Lucas and the Howards, and then you would let me become the family head. You were just using me to rope Lucas in to make him work for the Howards.
“Also, you told Lucas previously that if he brought Cheyenne back to the Howards, you would let him become the Howards’ helmsman. You must have been fooling him too, huh? Unfortunately, I took it seriously and even reprimanded him…
“In fact, Lucas has much greater awareness than me! Back then, he rejected it without hesitating at all. He must have already seen through your motive, and he never trusted you at all! Haha, despite being at this age, I’m still far more ignorant than a young man!
“Now, someone from the Peerless Martial Association came, and it’s related to Lucas. You severed ties with him because you think that he’s about to die and won’t be of any use to the family. In order to do that, you’ve even kicked me out of the family!
“Father, you’re really cold and ruthless. All you care about are interests! You try to make use of anyone who will benefit you, and you won’t hesitate to kick away anyone who has no value to you!
“Haha, you’re just a heartless person! You’re so cold-blooded it’s terrifying!”
Pamela smiled mirthlessly with a face full of tears.
I should have long realized what kind of a person my father is. Yet I keep holding onto hope for him, thinking that although he’s heartless, he should still care about me since I’m his daughter.
But the cruel truth had now hit Florence hard, causing her to sink into despair!
