160 Another Slap in the Face

Lewis waved his hand dismissively, letting the butler exit first. “Please ask them to wait.”

“Yes.”

After the butler quietly left, Lewis finally turned to Nathan, asking coldly, “On what grounds?”

“On what grounds?” Nathan exuded a sense of authority. “With her status, she’ll only bring shame to the Horton Group! Do you know that if the reporters spread the word tomorrow that your wife is an illegitimate daughter, how much our shares will plummet?!”

Oliver also said, “Lewis, since you have taken the role of CEO of the Horton Group, you must take on the corresponding responsibilities, including your

marriage! How could a woman of such status be worthy of you?!”

Seeing this, Melissa turned her gaze directly to Keira, “Miss Olsen, if you really care about Lewis, you should conscientiously divorce him!”

Keira pressed her lips together, offering no response.

She wasn’t foolish and certainly understood that these

people were just seizing the opportunity to make trouble. Even if today Lewis announced that Madeleine was his wife, they would probably criticize Madeleine for her humble origins, deeming her unworthy of

Lewis.

Yet, her own status was indeed the “issue.”

She turned her head to look at Lewis, trying to pull her hand out of his…

With a twinge of guilt indeed forming in her heart…

The “illegitimate daughter” label had imprisoned her for over twenty years, and she didn’t want the same

shackles to bind Lewis…

Lost in thought, the strong, dry hand suddenly gripped hers tightly. Lewis’s voice then resolutely rang out. “Are there any legal stipulations that a corporation’s legal person, or a chairman, cannot marry an illegitimate daughter as a wife?”

His words made everyone speechless.

Nathan retorted angrily, “Do we need rules for that?

It’s an unspoken consensus! You…”

“Since there are no stipulations…” Lewis cut him off directly. “If you wish to remove me from the

chairman’s position, then go through the proper

procedure, call a board meeting, and let everyone vote!”

“Your control of fifty-one percent of the shares makes the vote decision basically whatever you say! I think you’re just running a dictatorial regime in the company!”

An infuriated Nathan picked up a teacup and hurled it

at Lewis.

“Crash!”

The teacup smashed to pieces in front of Lewis, shards scattering everywhere.

Just as Nathan was about to speak, a walking stick suddenly struck out!

“Who allowed you to use violence?!”

Old Mrs. Horton, wielding her walking stick, struck at Nathan. “How dare you lay a hand on Lewis and his wife? You’re a disobedient son! Are you trying to kill

me?”

With a frown, Nathan looked at old Mrs. Horton,

showing a helpless expression, “Mom, I…”

“Don’t call me mom! If you don’t recognize your grandson’s wife, then I don’t recognize you as a son!”

Old Mrs. Horton lost her temper. “You even dare to hit your grandson’s wife. What kind of grandfather-in-law are you? Which family’s grandfather-in-law dares to strike their granddaughter-in-law?”

Dodging her blows, Nathan argued, “Mom, don’t talk nonsense; everything I said is for the best interest of the company. His choice of a wife is good for nothing, and bringing it up only brings disgrace upon the Horton Group! Now he’s already caused such a negative impact on the company, yet he still clings to the chairman’s seat. He’s just being selfish! Even if I let it go today, there are still so many executives in the Horton Group! With so many reporters at today’s banquet, the articles will soon come out, and the Horton family will become the biggest joke in

Oceanion. Let’s see how he’ll explain himself to those executives tomorrow!!”

At those words, Oliver had already pulled out his phone, opened the financial news channel’s feed, and heaved a silent sigh. “Dad, we don’t need tomorrow. The buzz has already started.”

Old Mrs. Horton paused her actions, while Nathan immediately turned to look at his phone.

However, he saw headlines like #CEO of Horton Group’s wife is an illegitimate daughter# and #Mistress causes a scene at Old Mrs. Horton’s birthday banquet# that were eye-catching and had topped the trending searches.

Among them, the clickbait topic #Shocking: Lewis’s wife is actually her# was ranked first!

With a sneer, Nathan said, “Lewis, look at this, this is your doing! Tonight’s trending should’ve been about your grandmother’s birthday celebration, but it turned into this! God knows how they’re mocking you inside! What’s so good about this illegitimate daughter? You must give the Horton Group an explanation today!”

Oliver also sighed. “Lewis, this matter concerns the entire company’s future operations. You can’t act on a whim, nor can you neglect the company. Even if you

don’t give us an explanation today, you’ll have to give one to those directors in the company tomorrow,

you…”

Before he could finish, Keira suddenly said, “Did you see the title of the top trending search?”

This remark made everyone pause slightly.

Nathan immediately frowned, “Such lack of manners. We are in the middle of a conversation, and there you go interrupting. What business is it of a woman’s?”

As soon as he finished speaking, the cane struck again. “I am also a woman. Are you going to tell me to shut up, too?!”

Nathan was speechless.

There was simply no reasoning with old Mrs. Horto

Oliver then said. “Of course, I saw it. The heat of the

top trending search title is so much higher than the others. Without even opening it, I know what it’s saying, what it’s criticizing…”

These trending searches had risen so quickly, naturally, because he had just paid someone to boost them!

8/9

160 Another Slap in the Face

The first trending search title gained heat the fastest, so he spent five hundred thousand on promoting its popularity!

Using the identity of Keira, the illegitimate daughter, to suppress Lewis…

But Keira smiled. “Then take a look inside…”

Oliver said with a sneer, “To see how others are

criticizing Horton Group?”

While saying that, he clicked on the title.

The next moment, he was stunned.

The content in the trending search title actually read, “Explosive! You’ll never guess who Lewis’s wife is-it turns out to be Dr. South! Yes, Dr. South, the person is at the forefront of cutting-edge technology in the new energy industry! Horton Group’s move is simply awesome, a powerful alliance! Once Horton Group’s stocks start trading tomorrow, they’re probably going to see a surge!”

Below was a row of praises.

Oliver was dumbfounded. What was happening?!

Keira’s lins curved un in a smile.

No matter what the channel’s hot search news was, she, as “Ms. S,” knew it better than anyone else. Just a while ago, she had found out about someone paying for trending searches.

Therefore, she immediately contacted “Josh Josh, asking him to post that tweet.

She had intended to retweet it herself from her

account to combat the scandal of being the illegitimate daughter using Dr. South’s reputation…

But who would have thought, after Josh Josh made his post, Oliver mistook it as derogatory and paid five hundred thousand for its popularity, shooting it up to the top spot in the trending searches!

Keira teased him. “Oliver, thanks for the heat you provided.”

Oliver was dumbfounded.

He was so angry he nearly had a heart attack.

Lewis and Keira exchanged glances, a smile forming on their lips.

Lewis said lightly, “Dad, Oliver, whether Horton

Group’s stocks will rise or fall tomorrow, let’s just wait

and see!”

He took Keira’s hand. “Mr. and Mrs. Allen are still

outside waiting for us. We bid you farewell.”

The two of them joined hands and turned around, leaving the living room together.

Once outside, they shared a smile before turning to

look at Mr. and Mrs. Allen, who had come back.
