Chapter 125 Sean glanced at Willow when he heard those words.
Willow was a little embarrassed and lowered her head.
After all, this matter was indeed one she had told Fion about. It seemed like she had quite a loose tongue. “I‘m asking you a question. Why are you looking at Willow?
“Do you really have six million?” Fion frowned slightly and asked again in an unkind tone.
Sean nodded gently.
Fion was taken aback when she heard that. She had not been expecting Sean to actually answer yes.
“Where is it? Take the money out and let me have a look.”
Fion still did not believe that Sean, a cripple, had six million.
She thought he would never be able to earn six million in his entire lifetime.
“Mom, I‘ve seen the text message about a transaction of six million being transferred to Sean’s card.
“Why don‘t you believe me? Besides, Sean owns the money, so there’s no need to show it to us, right?”
Willow frowned and stopped her mom with a soft tone.
“I didn‘t ask you to speak! Shut up.”
Fion snorted coldly and stretched out her palm to Sean. She said, “Take the money out.”
She had a tough attitude as if she was giving him an order.
However, even in the face of Fion‘s attitude, Sean merely glanced at her and moved his wheelchair straight toward his room.
He ignored Fion as if he was disdainful of talking to her. “Willow, look at him! Look at the attitude he has! “Well, this is still our home!
“He lives in our house, yet he doesn’t know how to be grateful.
“He doesn’t know that beggars shouldn‘t be choosers!”
Fion was furious and vented her anger at Willow after Sean left.
“Mom! Why do you keep saying things like that?” Willow frowned and lowered her voice, fearing that Sean would overhear them.
“What? Am I wrong?
“Isn’t he a freeloader residing in my home who never contributes to the family?”
Fion snorted coldly. Her words were full of anger.
“But he’s a human! A living, breathing human!
“The way you speak about him makes him feel ashamed, you know that?
“Also, it’s not like he stays at our house and willfully refuses to leave. It’s because grandpa asked him to.
“Perhaps because at the time he was very prestigious, so grandpa thought he would find a way out for us Quinns.”
Fion sneered when Willow said this.
“He was once capable, but that was in the past.
“I only look at the present! No matter what his identity used to be, he’s just a cripple now. A cripple with no money and power!”
Fion leaned back against the sofa cushions as she spoke coldly, her arms still folded in front of her.
“Mom, how can we rush to beg others for help when they’re in a successful season of their life…
“Yet turn around and kick them while they’re already down when their life takes a bad turn later on?
Willow was interrupted by Fion’s slap on the table before she could finish her words.
“Don’t tell me that! This is a society that despises the poor and not prostitutes.
“You have nothing, absolutely nothing, without money!
“Ask him about money, he has no money.
“Ask him about his connections, he has no connections.
“Even if you’re bullied, how can he defend your honor as a cripple?
“I’ll never allow you to be held back by him for the rest of your entire life. As long as he’s still staying in the Quinn Residence, I won’t tolerate him!
“Even if you keep telling me how great he is, I’ll still shame him!
“Unless he leaves the Quinn Residence, he and I will never be at peace with each other,” Fion sat up straight and said in a serious and firm tone.
Willow and Fion looked at each other for nearly half a minute. She knew very well how stubborn Fion could be.
“…I didn’t say I had to marry him.
“I want to talk about those things after he recovers and regains the ability to take care of himself.
“Why do you have to drive him away now?
“Just give him some time. Can’t you do that?”
There was a trace of desperate pleading in Willow’s eyes.
“Of course not!
“If I give him time, who will give me that time back?
“If I wait, what about Young Master Zimmer?
“You’re asking me why I want to drive him away now? It’s obviously because if he doesn’t leave now, how could you still have a chance with Young Master Zimmer?”
Fion summed up her true feelings in just a few words.
Willow was stunned for over ten seconds before she slowly sighed.
Fion was right. Beggars could not be choosers.
Since Sean was reluctant to submit to Fion, Willow would have to capitulate for his sake.
“Okay, I promise you!”
A second later, Willow suddenly declared those four words.
“Huh? What did you just say?”
Fion was shocked, and she looked at Willow incredulously.
“I said I promised you I’d get in touch with Quill.”
A trace of despair emerged in Willow’s eyes.
At this moment, it felt like she was dead inside.
Fion stood up and looked at Willow with excitement.
“But I have a condition.
“Sean can’t leave the Quinn Residence now.
“Even if you want him to leave, you have to wait until he recovers and regains the ability to take care of himself.
“If you agree, wait for him to leave the Quinn Residence once he recovers. And I’ll listen to you and get in touch with Quill.
“But if you don’t agree, even if you drive away Sean right now, I won’t ever contact Quill ever again!”
Willow looked at Fion with her beautiful eyes as she spoke in an extremely firm tone.
