Falling For My “Disabled” Wife Novel Chapter 22

Chapter 22

The atmosphere at the dining table got really off.

Fortunately, Sophie seemed not to mind whatever he said. She calmly said, “You must be Ronald, right? You are quite handsome as well. Roger pales slightly in comparison.” She retorted with a teasing expression.

Ronald was momentarily left speechless. He thought, I only heard from Emily that this cousin–in- law is disabled, but I didn’t expect her to be so sharp–tongued.

However, what he said earlier was even less pleasant. He could only smile apologetically and add, “You’re right. Indeed, I’m not as handsome as Roger. It’s just that my eyes are slightly better than his.” That remark seemed to be a joke. He thought no one would mind.

But Sophie’s expression turned serious. She replied, “Not necessarily. Eyes aren’t just for seeing things. They should also be used to take one’s cue from others. But obviously, you are not very good at taking your cue from other people.”

She thought, “If I allow Ronald to develop a habit of casually teasing me the first time we meet, he will continue to do so in the future. I will no longer be a person who is easily bullied and controlled by others. Especially… when he makes fun of Roger. I’m very displeased!‘

On the side, Emily looked like she was watching a drama. She said to Ronald, “Ronald, it seems you really don’t know how to take your cue from other people.”

Ronald could not help but roll his eyes at her and said, “Just go away and stop talking about me.” He turned back to Sophie with dissatisfaction, still wanting to say something.

Norman furrowed his brows at this moment. He said, “Ronald, if you don’t want to eat, go upstairs. You are the only one who talks a lot upon returning home.”

Ronald said, “I…” He was just about to speak.

Rebecca hurriedly kicked her son and then said to Norman, “Norman, don’t be angry. Ronald just speaks without thinking–Don’t mind it. I’ll go to his room to discipline him later.”

  • It was only then that Norman stopped reprimanding Ronald. He withdrew his gaze.

Ronald was surprised, wondering why his mother wanted to discipline him. But when he turned. around, he saw Rebecca giving a meaningful look. Then he could only hold back and no longer

talk.

He thought, ‘What’s going on? Mom seems really against me having a conflict with Sophie. I merely hid outside for a few days, and now that I’m back home, this cousin–in–law who marries into the Nicholls family for her sister seems to have a higher status than me?”

Sophie ignored Ronald and sat down with Roger.

Most of the dishes had been put on the dining table. Sophie then served Roger food. The two of them whispered and laughed from time to time.

Ronald looked at Emily with astonishment, his gaze questioning what was going on. He thought, ‘In our family, we’ve always been quiet during meals and before bedtime. Previously, Grandpa would get angry whenever someone talked a lot. But Sophie and Roger are talking, yet Grandpa surprisingly doesn’t reprimand them?”

Emily gave him a gaze to let him figure it out for himself.

Ronald could not resist challenging Norman’s limits. He said, “Mom, I want that one. Serve me, please.”

As soon as he spoke, Rebecca could not help but be stunned, thinking, ‘We never talk during meals at home. Each person eats their own food. What’s gotten into this child today, asking me to serve him food?”

At this point, Norman lost his patience. He immediately yelled angrily, “Is there something wrong with your eyes too? You need someone else to serve you food, huh? Just don’t eat! Get out!”

Rebecca said, “Norman…” She was startled. She did not expect that just one sentence from Ronald would provoke such anger from Norman.

Ronald was also shocked. He immediately said angrily, “Grandpa! What did I say wrong? Doesn’t Sophie keep asking Roger what he wants to eat and serving him food too? Can I not ask my mom to serve me food?” He thought, “This is clearly playing favorites!”

“Stop talking!” Rebecca said. Frightened, she hurriedly pulled Ronald up and said, “Go back to your room. Don’t eat anymore!”

“Mom,” Ronald said. He thought, ‘What’s going on with my mom? Previously, she kept defending me. To prevent me from marrying someone from the Bourn family, she racked her brain to think of lots of ways. How come she’s now defending Sophie and Roger after I was merely away for just a few days?”

“Go quickly!” Rebecca said. Fearing her son would anger Norman again, she hurriedly scolded him, asking him to leave.

Ronald, who had been pampered since childhood, had never suffered such a humiliation. “Fine,” Ronald said. “I’ll leave! Why are the family rules only targeting us? Roger and Sophie don’t have to follow them! If I’m not allowed to have this meal, so be it!” After saying that, Ronald tossed his fork and left.

Norman was instantly furious. He shouted, “Outrageous! You rascal! You aren’t allowed to come downstairs for meals for a week.”

Ronald paused for a moment as he left, but ultimately walked away with pride.

Seeing Norman turning red with anger, Humphrey quickly persuaded him not to get angry. “Dad, that kid got used to being wild while studying abroad,” he said. “Don’t be angry with him…”

“Got used to being wild?” Norman said. “I think it’s just a lack of discipline! If you all don’t properly. educate him, I will educate him for time!”

Hearing that Norman was truly angry, Rebecca quickly reassured him, saying, “Norman, I’ll go straighten him out now! This kid is really not behaving properly!” As she spoke, she actually put down her plate and fork, wanting to leave.

Seeing the situation, Norman could not help but sigh. “Alright,” he said. “Let’s eat! Ignore him!”

It was only then that Rebecca breathed a sigh of relief and quickly sat down.

Seeing this scene, Sophie not only lifted her eyebrows but also thought, ‘Rebecca handles the situation so smoothly, understanding Norman’s mood perfectly. When it comes to being scheming. perhaps even Jasmine is not as skilled as her.”

After a while, they finally finished the meal. Then everyone dispersed. Sophie and Roger also returned to their room. However, unexpectedly, Ronald happened to leave his room and bumped

into them.

The younger generation of the Nicholls family lived on the third floor. Coincidentally, Ronald and Roger’s rooms were opposite each other. Therefore, it was inevitable for them to run into each other when they entered or left their rooms.

Sophie could not help but sigh, thinking, ‘Our rooms are so close to each other. It seems that conflicts will be inevitable in the future.

Sure enough, as soon as Ronald saw the two of them, he could not help but mock. He asked, “Weren’t you awesome when you were downstairs just now, Sophic? I see a blind one wheels a cripple to go upstairs. That’s really pitiful.”

Sophie did not expect that Ronald, being a grown man, could be so petty and speak such cutting and unpleasant remarks.

She did not back down either. She immediately mocked, “Ronald, what’s truly pitiful isn’t a physical disability, but rather a deficiency in the psychological department. A grown man like you is so petty. You don’t even know how to say nice things. Could it be that…. you can’t read the room?”

Ronald had always been frivolous. He was very sharp–tongued when dealing with others. It had always been him teasing others. No one could outwit him when it came to teasing. However, he only exchanged a few words with Sophie, and each time he ended up on the losing side. At this

point, he could not help but grit his teeth and say, “Who did you say can’t read the room?”

Sophie pretended to shake her head and sigh, saying, “Oh, well. Communication seems futile. He doesn’t understand whoever I talk about. Forget it, Roger. Let’s go back to our room quickly lest our intelligence gets contaminated.”

“Damn!” Ronald said. Not expecting Sophie to be so sharp–tongued, he instantly got furious.

But before he could come up with a retort, Roger coldly said, “Step aside.”

The sudden coldness made Ronald’s eyes turn serious. He thought, ‘When did this guy have such a strong presence?‘ Involuntarily, he actually stepped aside.

Sophie did not bother with him anymore, allowing Roger to wheel her back to their room.

It was only after the door was closed that Ronald said in a disgruntled manner, “She’s just an adopted daughter of the Bourn family. What’s so impressive about her?”
