Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1314
Joshua shot Adrian a cold glare and said, “You have to come with me right now.“
Adrian furrowed his brows upon hearing this. “
“Where else?“ Joshua curled his lips into a sneer. “ Granny has refused to take the antidote, and her condition is deteriorating. Your sister died many years ago, and you’re her only son now. Do you need me to teach you what you should be doing?“
Adrian froze for a moment, then suddenly realized that Joshua wanted him to pay his respects to Granny Lynch before she passed. He narrowed his eyes and said, “Joshua, I understand what you’re trying to say, and it’s not like I’m refusing to pay my respects to Mother.“
With that, he turned, plopped down on the sofa next to him, and gazed at Joshua with a triumphant look. “ But you must have something to offer me in return for helping you, don’t you?“
Joshua stared at him. “Are you asking something in return for paying respects to your own mother?“
“Of course.“ Adrian crossed his legs and said gleefully, “After all, it’s bad luck to stay by a dying person’s bedside. Am I asking too much to get something in return for this?“
Joshua continued to stare at him coldly but did not say a word.
“Actually, my requests are simple.“ Adrian let out a yawn. “The first is to release Celia immediately and let her take care of Michael. You know how Michael is doing now—he can’t survive without her.
“My second request is this.“ He curled his lips into a sneer and continued, “I remember that when you were seventeen, my mother left the Lynch family’s assets to you, but she still kept something to herself; the factories located in the south of the city. Even though they bring in only a few million dollars of revenue, it’s more than enough for me and Michael to live off of.“
Adrian narrowed his eyes. “I want ownership of these factories to be transferred to my name after she dies.“
Joshua’s expression darkened when he heard this.
Joshua had been a businessman for many years, so he had encountered all sorts of people with strange and outrageous requests. However, this was the first time he had ever come across someone as shameless and selfish as Adrian, a man who would use paying his own mother respects as leverage for monetary gain.
The most ironic part was that this man was his father.
Joshua curled his lips into a small smile and turned to glance at Adrian. “I ‘ve already told you this: I ‘m not the one who gets to dictate whether or not Celia will be released from prison. I ‘m also not the one in charge of Granny’s inheritance, so I can’t satisfy either of your requests.“
Adrian sneered. “Since you can’t satisfy my requests, how dare you even ask me to pay my respects to her?“
“You must do it.“ “In your dreams! “
As soon as he heard this, Joshua took out his phone and recited the information that Lucas had sent him, “Three years ago, Michael harassed a girl in Sea City, who retaliated against him. In response to this, he severely injured the girl but managed to escape jurisdiction for this.
“Five years ago in Merchant City, Michael harassed a girl who had a boyfriend and hit the boyfriend with his car, severely injuring him, and causing him to end up in a vegetative state…
“Six years ago…“
Joshua’s voice was cold and hard, and the atmosphere in the ward immediately turned as cold as ice.
Michael listened to all this dazedly, and the fear on his face grew more and more amplified with each word.
“Stop, stop! “ He clutched his head. “I don’t want to go to jail. I don’t want to! “
With that, he lifted his head to glare at Adrian. “He wants you to visit that old hag, so do it! If he calls the police and exposes all my crimes…“
Michael started crying and whimpered, “I don’t want to go to jail! “
Adrian narrowed his eyes, but before he could say anything, Joshua flipped a page in the PDF that Lucas had sent him and continued, “Twenty years ago, on the day that my mother died during labor in Central Hospital, Mr. Adrian Lynch met with the chief obstetrician in charge of her surgery, bringing three hundred thousand dollars along with him.”
With that, he lifted his head to stare at Adrian. “ Since you don’t want to pay your respects to Granny, Master Lynch, do you want me to track the doctor down and find out what you said to him the day you gave him the money?”
The color drained from Adrian’s face as soon as he heard this.
