“I’m sorry for making you worry about me Grandpa,” muttered Vivian.
Although the elder Mr. Norton spent most of his time at home, he still paid close attention to Mark and Finnick’s movements. Vivian felt like she had embarrassed the entire Norton family. Although it was all a misunderstanding, it had caused Mr. Norton great distress.
Indeed, he was rather anxious about this matter.
He said, “The fact that Finnick undertook such a high-profile exposé to expose both of your identities shows that he still loves you. However, it also caused great commotion and bad publicity for the Norton family.”
Vivian felt extremely guilt-ridden after hearing what he said.
Mr. Norton had no intention of blaming her but wanted to remind both her and Finnick to act appropriately in order to secure their jobs and prevent others from exploiting them.
Then, he suddenly remembered something and exclaimed, “Why isn’t there any news from your side yet given the fact that Ashley is pregnant?”
“I’m… Not sure,” stammered Vivian in embarrassment.
Although they had been married for quite some time, still, Vivian had yet to conceive.
“Sigh. If the both of you don’t put in more effort, I will have to keep waiting,” whined the elder Mr. Norton.
He is rather endearing sometimes.
The elder Mr. Norton thought of something again and enquired secretly, “Is it because… Finnick isn’t good in bed?”
“What?” Vivian asked in shock.
“Well… I…” Vivian was deeply perturbed by what he said. “How can you be so foolish!” He exclaimed.
Vivian suddenly understood what he was trying to say. She felt extremely awkward that her whole face turned bright red.
Finnick is more than capable. She woke up with an aching back every single day from making love with Finnick. He is more than capable.
Grandpa is too obsessed with having a grandkid. How can he ask me such a question?
The elder Mr. Norton noticed her blushing face and gathered that she had finally understood what he meant. She is such an introvert. I shouldn’t ask so many questions.
“Anyway, you should put in more effort. You can’t let Mark and his son get all the attention,” he stated.
“I will work hard Grandpa,” she replied. I just have to agree with him for the time being. However, she felt like she should have been more reserved and not make such a remark.
Mr. Norton did not think too much of it as Vivian was a polite, caring and dutiful granddaughter-in-law.
Mr. Norton had instructed his servants to prepare many tonics for Vivian.
“Grandpa, I don’t think I can finish all these,” she exclaimed as she looked at the huge bag of tonics. If I finished all these tonics, I think I will not survive when making love to Finnick!
Mr. Norton replied, “Bring of all this home and remember to consume them everyday!” He then instructed his servants, “Bring all of this to her room and to the car when they leave.”
Vivian wanted to wail out loud. I can’t believe how traditional and conservative wealthy families are in terms of carrying on the family line.
Vivian walked out of his study room and wanted to head to her room upstairs. At that moment, Mark suddenly appeared.
“What a coincidence, Mark,” she said cautiously.
Mark inched closer to her and whispered, “I was waiting for you.”
“What do you mean by that?” she asked.
“You heard it right. I’m here to see you.” He grinned. “Come to my study. I want to have a chat with you.”
Vivian furrowed her brows. She was unwilling to follow him. However, Mark was her elder brother and she could not turn him down. As a result, she had no choice but to follow him into his study room.
His study room was well-designed and was filled with books regarding the commercial world. His study table was well-organized and neat—not a speck of dust could be seen. Two large desktops were placed on the table. He likes surfing the Internet.
