Chapter 192: The Absurd James Family
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Before Yvette Larson’s family set off for San Diego, she received a call from her cousin—Karine James. “Yvette, make sure to bring Finn Taylor along for Grandma’s birthday celebrations. Although he’s a piece of trash, he’s still your husband. We must celebrate as a family. Oh right, I got myself a new boyfriend. His name is Nathan Yeats; he’s an entrepreneur and earns about half a million a year. Yvette, you must help me evaluate him and see if he’s suitable for marriage.”
Karine James acted as though she cared a lot for her cousin and went on a long monologue. However, Yvette Larson could tell that the other had only said so much simply because she wanted to boast that she’d found herself a rich boyfriend.
“Alright, alright. I won’t talk to you any longer, Yvette. I’m going out shopping with Nathan. Remember to bring Finn Taylor along.. Maybe I’ll get Nathan to recommend a good job to him.” With that, she ended the call.
Yvette Larson felt especially pleased every time she received a call from Karine James. ‘Without fail, the latter will always boast about herself. She is always trying to one-up me, but I can understand why she would do so. After all, I’ve always done better than my cousin in every way while growing up. From our heights to our looks and even our studies, I’ve always beaten Karine James.’
Of course, Yvette Larson hadn’t done so on purpose. She was simply a natural at everything, but that had evoked jealousy in Karine James, who was now looking to show off her superiority.
Upon hanging up the call, Yvette Larson immediately told her mother about it.
Linda James was slightly annoyed once she heard what had happened. “I treated Karine James so well when she was younger. I didn’t expect her to be such an ingrate!”
Just then, Francis Larson spoke up. “Isn’t everyone from your family an ingrate?”
Linda James knew exactly who her husband was talking about—it was none other than Karen James’s family.
When Karen James had visited with her family previously, she had even borrowed 30,000 dollars! Yet, they hadn’t even made so much as a call after returning home.
It seemed as though nothing had even happened. Such relatives were truly absurd.
Of course, Karen James’s husband and son were equally absurd.
Her husband—Larry Shaw—was an alcoholic. He was sure to get drunk and kick up a huge fuss at every family gathering.
As for her son—Weston Shaw—he was a grown man, yet he was still a mommy’s boy. Forget that he was incapable of doing anything on his own, but he could never go three sentences without mentioning his mom. It was bizarre!
“Mom, let’s not talk about that. Pack up your things, and we’ll leave in the afternoon. Finn will join us in a few days’ time.”
The moment Linda James heard that her son-in-law wouldn’t be joining them right away, she panicked. “No, how could Finn Taylor not go with us? Isn’t your grandma his grandma too? It makes no sense that he’s not going to celebrate her birthday!”
Yvette Larson and her father looked at her with strange gazes. It seemed as though pigs could fly.
In the past, Linda James had always refused to bring Finn Taylor along to San Diego even when he had asked. But now, she had taken the initiative to invite him!
“Why are you looking at me like that? I think of Finn Taylor as part of our family now. Do you have any problems with that?”
Yvette Larson would be a fool if she believed her mom. It was obvious that it wasn’t because the latter now thought of Finn Taylor as her family.
It was only because her husband now had an extraordinary status that her mom wanted to show him off, but that wasn’t a bad thing either.
The James family had always looked down on Finn Taylor, thinking of him as a piece of trash. This time, it’d be good to show those arrogant people just how outstanding and brilliant Finn Taylor truly was.
“Mom, don’t overthink it. It’s not that Finn isn’t going, but he’s just a little busy. He’ll join us in a bit.”
Even though her daughter had said so, Linda James still felt uneasy. As such, she approached her son-in-law and asked, “Finn Taylor, are you really going to San Diego?”
“Of course. What’s the matter?” Finn Taylor was confused. ‘In the past, Linda James had never allowed me to tag along even when I asked. But this year, she had come to look for me when I’m simply going to join them a few days later.’
“Oh, that’s a promise. You have to turn up.”
“Alright, I promise you.”
Only after getting a promise from her son-in-law did Linda James leave in satisfaction.
That afternoon, Yvette Larson’s family left for San Diego. As for Finn Taylor, he headed to Logan Yeats’s residence.
He was going to acquire the Larson Corporation under Logan Yeats’s name this time.
Hunter Sullivan had ended his collaboration with the Larson family, while Alexander Scott’s relationship with Eleanor Larson had ended on a bad note.
As for Zachary Kennedy, his forte lay in technology. As such, it seemed like Logan Yeats was the best man for the job.
“Acquire the Larson family’s company within a month. Get someone to head the company and then hire Yvette Larson. Let her handle all of the company’s projects; don’t expose yourself.”
Logan Yeats took every word to heart.
At that very moment, Quince Larson was at the entrance of Xander Corporation. Because the Sullivan family had ended their collaboration with them, the Larson family was on the brink of bankruptcy.
He had seen a glimpse of hope because of Eleanor Larson, but he had never expected his cousin to do such a shameless thing. Left with no other choice, he could only try his luck at Xander Corporation in hopes that he could salvage their collaboration.
The moment Hunter Sullivan walked out of the office building, Quince Larson fell on his knees. Even so, the former didn’t pay him any heed and simply walked off.
As he watched Hunter Sullivan walking off into the distance, Quince Larson felt indignant. ‘What’s so good about Yvette Larson? Why does Hunter Sullivan insist on terminating the contract without her around?’
Quince Larson thought of a possibility. ‘It seems very likely that Yvette has already crawled into Hunter Sullivan’s bed. To be honest, my cousin is beautiful. Someone like Hunter Sullivan has no lack for anything, but men like that usually have wives at home that are usually old and haggard. That’s why he would be tempted by women like Yvette. However, Yvette isn’t the only woman on this planet. Eleanor isn’t much worse off than Yvette.’
As such, Quince Larson came up with a crazy idea.
He drove all the way to Eleanor Larson’s house and then dumped some things in front of his cousin.
As the latter looked through them, she was dumbfounded.
