Chapter 382: Punishment!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Was the DNA report real?
Didn’t that mean that… Nora was really Uncle Ian’s daughter?
It was not that she was not their cousin or related to them by blood if she was indeed Uncle Ryan’s daughter. It was just that Uncle Ian was different to them.
To Joel and Quentin, Ian was more like a teacher and a father than an uncle.
Especially Joel, who protected him from the bottom of his heart.
Yvette and Uncle Ryan had eloped and hurt Uncle Ian’s heart. To the two of them, this matter was unforgivable. Therefore, in the beginning, their feelings for Nora were a little complicated.
Even someone as strong as Ian would push a woman away when she clearly wanted to get close, let alone Joel and Quentin.
But if Nora was Ian’s daughter… then it would be completely different!
Joel could still maintain his composure. Although he was surprised, he could still maintain his calm.
Quentin was stunned. “That’s impossible. I pulled your hair last time and tested your DNA. Is that hair not yours? We have a cousin?”
This was a novel way of thinking.
She grimaced and answered, “It’s mine.”
She was silent for a moment, then decided not to bring up the question Lily had discovered, because she had sensitively caught that it might have involved something.
She said confidently, “The result was wrong.”
There was a small chance that the DNA test report would go wrong, and the probability was about 0.01%. How could they encounter such a thing?
Quentin did not think much about it and asked, “Then, your mom didn’t betray Uncle Ian?”
“…I don’t think so,” Nora said slowly. “Now that I think about it, she might have only given me the surname Smith after marrying Henry Smith. Also…”
There was also the pharmaceutical company her mother had left behind, Idealian Pharmaceuticals. The name Idealian had the name ‘Ian’ in it!
Quentin believed her again. He nodded and approached Nora directly. He patted her shoulder. “Alright, Nora. Since you’re Uncle Ian’s biological daughter, you’re my biological sister. I’ll protect you in the future! Don’t be afraid. As long as I’m here, I won’t let anyone bully you! Also, I won’t nag anymore when I’m protecting you! You don’t have to feel burdened, I’ll protect you personally. I’m also responsible for Uncle Ian.”
Joel glanced at Quentin and then at Nora. His dark eyes were filled with thoughts.
Nora only pretended not to notice his probing gaze.
Yvonne was sent back to the villa in the suburbs, and Granduncle followed suit.
He paced back and forth in the living room and looked at Yvonne angrily. “Didn’t you say that she was Ryan’s daughter? How did she become Ian’s legitimate daughter again?!”
Yvonne was like an ant on a hot pan, not knowing what to do. She anxiously said, “Granduncle, what’s the point of talking about this now? You should think of a way to get me out of this!”
Granduncle glanced at her and sneered. “I’ll think of a way for you? Anyway, when your father wakes up, you’re the one he wants to settle the score with, not me! This has nothing to do with me!”
With that, he walked out quickly.
Yvonne wanted to chase after him, but the old man had already slipped away as if he wanted to get rid of her.
She clenched her fists in anger.
This sinister and cunning old man!
Previously, he hated Ian so much that he gritted his teeth. After all, no elder in charge of guarding the old residence would be looked down upon like this. However, Ian was too domineering and did not take him seriously at all.
This old man would never miss any opportunity to bully Ian.
Yet, he could not bear the responsibility!
Yvonne’s chest rose and fell as she sat on the sofa.
She clenched her fists and stared ahead.
Nora had become her father’s biological daughter. Then, her father would look down on her even more!
After all, all these years, she only had a nominal relationship with Ian. Ian had never taken her out for a day.
Furthermore, Ian was someone who abhorred evil. After knowing what she had done, even if they had no evidence, they might still chase her out of the Smiths!
She could not leave the Smiths.
She was used to living in luxury since she was young. She could not live without money!
Yvonne lowered her head, her eyes turning red.
Why did everyone look down on her? Wasn’t it because she was an adopted daughter? It was because she was an adopted daughter that she was afraid of being chased away and cared about her status…
She covered her face and cried gloomily.
But as she cried, she suddenly looked up again!
She could not cry. She had not reached the end!
She could still be saved!
She stood up and walked around the room.
Yes, the only person who wanted to chase her out of the Smiths was her father. If her father died now, even if the Smiths acknowledged Nora, she would still have a share of her father’s assets!
What a pity. Why did Nora save her father?!
Yvonne’s eyes flashed with ruthlessness.
After understanding something, she looked out the door and saw that there was no one outside.
Joel was really silly.
After sending her here yesterday, he had not left anyone behind to keep an eye on her, letting her go out and find Granduncle.
It was the same today.
But it was good too.
She walked back and forth in her room, anxious to wait until it was dark. Then, she went out, took out her diamond ring, and found a black car.
The driver took her to the hospital.
The sky had already turned completely dark.
After Yvonne got out of the black car, she entered the hospital with an uneasy expression.
The more she walked, the calmer she became.
When she arrived at the floor of Ian’s ward, she had already calmed down.
She slipped into the changing room at the side and changed into a nurse’s uniform before leaving with a mask on.
She pushed the cart toward Ian’s ward. When she reached the door, she was stopped. “Who is it?”
Yvonne was very calm as she said impatiently, “I’m here to change the dressing! Open the door!”
The bodyguard was stunned before opening the door.
Yvonne rushed to the bed and looked at Ian.
Nora had said that he would wake up tomorrow.
Therefore, she only had tonight.
She took out a syringe and looked out. Then, her fingers trembled as she held Ian’s IV bottle and pushed the medicine in the syringe.
With a fierce look in her eyes, she said, “Daddy, don’t blame me. If you want to blame someone, blame your biological daughter and my big brother for forcing me too hard!”
However, just as she said this, a hand suddenly reached out from the side and held her hand tightly!
Yvonne was stunned. She turned around stiffly and met Joel’s face!
