Falling For My “Disabled” Wife Novel Chapter 18

Chapter 18

Sophie didn’t dwell on it for long. She quickly used her mobile phone to search for the name on Google. Soon, all the personal information of Marcus appeared on the screen. It turned out he was the chairman of the board at Brodesia Group.

Sophie was stunned. Was this a joke? How could her father be the head of the prestigious Brodesia Group in Habourland? That meant he was a billionaire.

The Nicholls family was the leader among the top ten families currently, but the Dawson family, before the rise of the top ten families, was the number one family in Habourland.

Although the Nicholls family’s rise in the past decade had overshadowed the Dawson family’s brilliance to some extent, it didn’t change the fact that the Dawson family still held the position as the top family with a long history in Habourland.

After all, twenty years ago, the heads of the top ten families were all groomed by the Dawson family’s patriarch, Clifford Dawson. It could be said that they were once followers of Clifford, including Norman, who received guidance from Clifford. That was why the Dawson family was undoubtedly an existence surpassing the top ten families in Habourland.

Sophie had occasionally heard about such a legendary family and of the prestigious Marcus when she lived with the Bourn family, but she never thought that one day she would be connected to

them.

Sophie stared blankly at the screen. She was already in a daze, forgetting even to breathe.

Sensing that something was wrong with Sophie, Roger walked out of the study and asked in a low voice, “What’s wrong? Are you not feeling well?”

Only then did Sophie come back to her senses. “No, I’m fine. I only feel a bit suffocated.” As she spoke, Sophie hurriedly put away her phone.

Roger seemed to sense that she was having trouble breathing. “Let me help you get some fresh air on the balcony.”

Sophie fell silent for a moment, then nodded. “Okay.” The news was indeed too shocking. She needed some fresh air to calm down.

Roger smiled and then bent down to help Sophie. Sophie carefully followed his guidance, putting her feet on the ground and slowly standing up.

During the day, Sophie had been undergoing rehabilitation on her own, and every step was challenging. However, with Roger supporting her, Sophie surprisingly stood quite steadily. With Roger helping her, Sophie walked slowly toward the balcony.

Roger did not hurry. With each step he took, he would pause, giving Sophie time to take the next

A

step. Sophie had never been cared for so attentively before. Feeling Roger’s meticulousness, Sophie couldn’t help but feel a warmth and dependence. In this manner, Sophie took several minutes to walk to the balcony with Roger’s aid.

Finally, without needing to hide from anyone anymore, Sophie used her ability to reach the balcony to breathe in the fresh night air. She couldn’t help but greedily take a deep breath of the night breeze. As the balcony faced the backyard, the night wind carried the sweet fragrance of flowers and grass to them.

“The flowers in the Nicholls family’s garden smell so nice,” Sophie couldn’t help but remark.

Roger smiled. “Most of the flowers in the garden are taken care of by my mother. If you like them, you can bring a few pots into the room.”

Sophie shook her head. “No need. I can smell them from the balcony. Wouldn’t that be better? I won’t be able to take care of them if they are in the room.” Sophie couldn’t take care of these things now, considering her limited mobility.

Roger said nothing but helped her sit on the white wicker chair placed on the balcony.

After Sophie sat down, Roger sat opposite her and reached out to find the jug and glasses, pouring her a glass of water.

Looking at Roger struggling, Sophie suggested, “I’ll handle pouring water in the future.” She might have trouble with her legs but not with her hands.

Roger smiled. “It’s nothing. I’m more familiar with this room than you are.”

Thinking about it, Sophie admitted he made sense. She accepted the water from Roger. Never had she enjoyed such a quiet post–meal time with anyone. Sophie couldn’t help but lean back in the chair, take a deep breath, and relax. She needed to ease the tension she had just experienced.

The Dawson family was not a group of people Sophie could easily approach. Even though Sophie now knew Marcus and his wife were her biological parents, she had no idea whether the Dawson family had looked for her or if they would acknowledge her. Before she made all those clear, Sophie would not approach them rashly. It would be better, hopefully, to have a chance to meet

them.

When Sophie did not talk, Roger spoke after a while. He asked, “Actually, since you can stand, why don’t you attend Grandpa’s birthday party?”

Sensing that Roger was particularly concerned about this, Sophie hesitated before telling him, “I want to go because I’m not good at socializing.”

Sophie had been confined by the Bourn family for several years, and she had not interacted with people for a long time. Additionally, most of the people at the party were children of prominent families, and Sophie didn’t like the demeanors of those spoiled and privileged individuals.

Roger seemed to understand her character. “Well, if you don’t like it, don’t go. However… many people will come on that day. All ten major families will be present. You are my wife. They should know who you are, at least.”

Sophie could hear that though Roger hadn’t given her a wedding due to his blindness, he still wanted to give her status as much as possible. Although slightly moved, Sophie still intended to refuse. Then, she realized something. “You say… all ten major families will be there?”

Roger put down the glass of water elegantly and nodded. “Yes.”

Sophie’s eyes lit up. “Then… What about the Dawson family?” If all the top ten families were coming, perhaps members of the Dawson family would be there too?

Sure enough, after a slight pause, Roger nodded. “The patriarch of the Dawson family, Clifford Dawson, has a deep friendship with my grandfather. Every year, Clifford brings the entire family. That includes Marcus Dawson and his wife, their sons, and only daughter.”

Upon hearing this news, Sophie couldn’t help but feel excited. It seemed that everything was falling into place effortlessly. If the Dawson’family came to Norman’s party, including Marcus’s children, that meant if Sophie went to the party, she would be able to meet all her family. Sophie’s heart couldn’t help but race. Was fate working in her favor?

However, something dawned on Sophie. “You just mentioned the only daughter of the Dawson family?”

Roger’s unfocused eyes seemed to look at her. “You didn’t know? Ronald wanted to marry the daughter of the Dawson family, which is why he ended up switching with me for the marriage alliance with the Bourn family.”

Sophie was momentarily speechless.

Although Sophie had heard something about it when she first arrived at the Nicholls family yesterday, she had no impression of the Dawson family’s heiress.

“So, it’s because of her that I was married into the Nicholls family and entered into this marriage alliance with you,” Sophie remarked with a tone of irony.

Although they had never met, the whole situation seemed like a twist of fate. Due to Ronald’s desire to marry the Dawson family heiress, the marriage alliance candidate was changed to Roger, and the Bourn family also replaced Laura with Sophie.

“You’re not wrong in saying that.” Roger’s lips curved slightly, showing his agreement. However, only Roger knew the real truth. Sophie’s marriage to him was not a coincidence.
