The cellphone fell from Jeremy’s hand to the table.
It bounced off and fell to the ground soon after. The screen of his new cellphone instantly cracked.
Lucy and her family, who were in the private room, were all dumbfounded.
Jeremy had intentionally turned on the phone’s speakers to let them hear the news of his promotion.
Therefore, they had also clearly heard what Clara had said just now.
Right now, they were all shellshocked.
Guarding the entrance?
Jeremy needed to guard the entrance?
Jeremy had carefully selected the position of guard dog for Sean.
Now the position had become his?
“No, no, no…”
Jeremy slumped on the chair, his face pale and bloodless.
He used to have a bright future. He had been supposed to be promoted to be in charge of managing a district soon.
In the future, maybe he could have even gone one step further.
However, all his hope had instantly shattered.
He had fallen so far he had to guard the entrance now!
No matter who was doing such a job, it was not a respected position!
“Jeremy, what’s… What’s going on?
“What exactly is going on?”
Lucy slapped the table, her eyes full of puzzlement.
This rich son-in-law in front of her had not only failed to get promoted, but he was also even worse off than before now!
If someone learned that her son-in-law worked as a security guard…
This was absolutely unacceptable to Lucy who desperately sought after status and fame!
“I, Mom, I don’t know….” Jeremy looked flustered and muttered to himself.
“Don’t call me Mom! You two aren’t married yet! Hmph!”
Lucy changed her expression faster than you could turn the page of a book as she said that with a cold snort.
The others also frowned and looked at Jeremy.
They had thought Jeremy would definitely be able to give them a lot of help once he was in the government office.
Things were undoubtedly easier if you had connections there.
However, right now, what could Jeremy do as a security guard?
“Why, why did things have to take such a sudden turn?”
Jeremy’s face was pale, and his eyes were full of shock.
“Could it be something to do with Sean?” Lucy’s second daughter suddenly murmured.
Everyone’s gazes suddenly landed on her.
Immediately afterward, the private room fell into deathly silence.
They all remembered Sean’s previous words and the confidence he had when saying
“It’s him! It has to be him!” Jeremy gritted his teeth and said after snapping out of his daze.
Upon hearing that, Lucy wanted to immediately refute it.
She did not want to admit that Sean had the power to decide Jeremy’s future.
However, she had to admit it.
Originally, Jeremy was going to be promoted and his future had been bright.
However, after happening to run into a conflict with Sean, he was swiftly removed from his current position and demoted to janitor.
Could it just be a coincidence?
“That cripple! I must make him pay the price for his actions!”
Jeremy gritted his teeth, his eyes filled with scalding animosity.
“But whether you can get a promotion now is up to him.”
Lucy sat down slowly. She was an elderly person, after all, so she always considered things more holistically than Jeremy.
Whoever started the trouble should end it too!
At present, Sean was the only one who could change this situation!
Jeremy suddenly raised his head. He understood what Lucy meant.
“No! I’ll never bow to a cripple!”
Jeremy pondered it for a couple of seconds and still felt extremely disgusted by the idea.
“Hmph! Then never contact my daughter ever again.”
Lucy snorted coldly as she spoke in a merciless tone.
Jeremy fell silent immediately.
If he did not apologize and ask Sean for forgiveness on this matter… Not only would he lose his relationship, but his great future too! “Okay, I’ll go!”
Jeremy had to compromise in the end.
At the Quinn Residence.
Once Sean and the others arrived home, Willow prepared some warm water for Sean to help him wash up. “Willow?
Sean suddenly could not help but call out after seeing Willow squeezing out some toothpaste with a serious expression.
Willow turned slightly and glanced at Sean suspiciously. “These little things, I can do them myself now…” Sean felt his heart grow warmer as he said softly.
Willow was taken aback for a moment before she reacted.
“I’m used to it…”
Willow did not say much. She continued to squeeze the toothpaste and put it in Sean’s hands.
She had been looking after him day and night for two years, and many things had become instinct for ler.
Sean did not say much either, but he silently remembered her care over all this time in his heart.
His emotions fluctuated as he held his toothbrush.
He suddenly remembered that on the day he had just woken up, Willow had quietly
whispered something to herself when she thought he had not woken up yet.
She envied other people being in pairs and envied others who were loved and protected.
‘If you’re willing to marry me, I’ll definitely give you the grandest wedding ever.
‘Let all the girls envy you.
‘Let everyone in this world not dare to bully you,’ Sean swore silently in his heart as he looked at Willow’s back.
The silver needles in his left hand could cure all kinds of intractable diseases.
With his right hand holding a sword to protect the country, it could slash the enemy’s commander in battle, and that one sword could reach a million divisions!
However, right now, he just wanted to use these two hands to protect the lady who had taken care of him for two years.
