Edwin patted Joline’s hand. “To me, these are just unimportant people and things. They’re not worth your sadness and disappointment.”
To Edwin, his heart was very small. There were only a few people in there, and as long as they were happy, he would do anything for them.
How could Joline not understand the meaning behind her grandson’s words?
However, Edwin had been carrying too much on his shoulders all this time. He had never complained a single word, and they could only watch helplessly, unable to help him.
The reason why Joline liked and valued Caroline so much was because she could make Edwin reveal his other side and make him relax. So even if Caroline was a demon, she would still ask this demon to stay by Edwin’s side.
Fortunately, Edwin had good taste, and Caroline was also a good girl.
Thinking of Caroline, Joline’s spirits were lifted. “Have you discussed this with
Caroline? When are you planning to hold the wedding?”
Edwin pursed his lips and shook his head. “There’s no rush.”
Joline disagreed. “Caroline is such a good girl. You have to hurry up and marry her.”
Something flashed across Edwin’s eyes, but he didn’t relent. “We’ve only been together for a short time, and we’re still getting used to each other, so there’s no need to rush.”
What Edwin didn’t say was that he was also anxious, but Caroline, who had more things on her shoulders than him, obviously didn’t have the mood to be immersed in marriage.
Furthermore, his relationship with Caroline had not reached the stage where she could entrust herself with him for the rest of her life. No matter how willing he was, he could not ignore Caroline’s feelings. He could use the marriage contract to tie her to his side, which was the biggest breakthrough he could make at the moment.
When Edwin rejected her again, Joline knew that things had gone south. She sighed regretfully. “I thought something exciting was going to happen at home.”
Edwin didn’t comment and casually suggested, “If you want to have a good time, it’s your birthday next month. You can celebrate it then.”
Joline glared at him. “How is that the same?”
Was she looking forward to the wedding? She was clearly hoping that the
Anderson family would have a steady stream of new members joining them.
“Then you can make arrangements for George in advance. After all, he’s already 15 years old this year. I think he should be very obedient to you.” Even if he didn’t listen, she could still trick him into going on the right track.
Joline sighed. “You’d better not harm your brother. Let him live a few more years of happiness.”
Her meaning was obvious. It was not that she would not harm George anymore, but that she would be merciful and drag on for a few more years before she would harm him.
It could only be said that they were all members of the Anderson family. When it came to harming George, they were all from the same line.
Of course, he didn’t need to repeat this to Caroline.
Caroline stared at him for two seconds before she hugged him and pulled his head into her arms. “Actually, you can show your sadness and disappointment.” “I’m not sad or disappointed.” Edwin was obviously confused by her words.
As he grew up and gained more power in the Anderson family, many hidden things were revealed to him. Edwin admitted that he was depressed for a while at that time, but he quickly saw through these people and stopped worrying about them.
Therefore, even if the current Edwin knew everything that Joseph had done behind his back, even if Joseph died in front of him, he didn’t think there was a need for him to be sad and disappointed.
Caroline shook her head. “This is not necessary or unnecessary.” She didn’t know how to explain it to him, but since Edwin didn’t think it was necessary, she couldn’t cross the line and say or do anything.
“Speaking of which, Robert mentioned your illness the other day. What’s going on?” This question had been on her mind for the past few days, but she had not found a chance to say it.
Hearing the disgusting name Robert’ from Caroline’s mouth obviously made Edwin a little unhappy. However, he would never vent his negative emotions on Caroline, so he could only suppress this subtle unhappiness..
