Chapter 212

Roderick stood there frozen, his face was pale.

He’d experienced all kinds of hardships all his life, but at that moment, he didn’t know what to do.

He thought it was bad enough that he’d gotten cheated on.

He didn’t expect that there’d be a bigger “surprise” that followed.

His son wasn’t actually biologically his?

This revelation was even more severe than finding out he was being cheated on!

“Mr. Rhysare… you sure?” Roderick’s eye twitched. He was clinging to the very last glimmer of hope.

“Mr. Brooks, it’s a hard pill to swallow, but based on your body’s current condition, you lost your ability to have

children a long time ago. If you don’t believe me, you can go get tested yourself,” Dustin said firmly.

To be honest, he was starting to pity Roderick.

Although he was swamped with riches, his wife had an affair, and his son wasn’t his.

This double whammy would have driven any ordinary person insane.

“Alright. Thank you, Mr. Rhys. There are too many people here. Shall we find another place to talk?” Roderick

asked, his face completely neutral.

“Of course.” Dustin caught Natasha’s eye and immediately agreed.

“Alright. Dan, take Ms. Harmon and Mr. Rhys to the Brooks Manor. I’ll be there after a while,” Roderick

instructed his driver.

Dan hummed in response. Then, he led Dustin and Natasha to the Rolls Royce outside.

After the two left. Roderick’s expression finally turned gloomy.

Whether his son was his or not, he would find out with a paternity test.

He could forgive his wife for her affair, but he couldn’t handle raising someone else’s child.

Dustin and Natasha walked around the garden at the Brooks Manor, gazing at the beautiful scenery

surrounding them.

A few housekeepers trailed behind them, carrying trays of pastries and tea, ready to be called upon anytime.

After taking a stroll through the garden, they found a cool area to rest their feet.

“Ms. Harmon, do you think Mr. Brooks can handle this shocking truth?” Dustin asked out of the blue.

Il Chloe hadn’t done something so demeaning, he actually wouldn’t have stuck his nose where it didn’t belong.

Mr. Brooks has gone through all sorts of trials and tribulations. He should be fine. Of course, that’s if you can

cure his secret illness.” Natasha smiled faintly.

For a man, the ability to produce children was very important.

“As long as Mr. Brooks believes me,” Dustin responded.

As he spoke, a large shadow suddenly fell over them.

It was Roderick!

“Hello, you two. Sorry for making you wait so long.” Roderick wiped the sweat from his forehead, forcing a


“Mr. Brooks, has the matter been settled?” Dustin asked cautiously.

“Yes, it’s settled.” Roderick nodded.

Thanks to the power of money, the results of the paternity test were out in less than an hour.

As Dustin said, his son was indeed not his.

When he learned of the outcome, he was furious.

He even had the urge to kill.

However, after so many years, he had developed some attachments to them.

In the end, he let the mother and son live.

But from today on, they were not to appear before him ever again.


fate truly dealt me a rotten hand! All my life, I did only good deeds, so who would have thought that not

only would I lose my ability to have children, but I would also end up parting ways with my wife and child.”

Roderick heaved a long sigh.
