Chapter 2 Born A Grand Noble
Just because he accomplished nothing, just because he was a good-for-nothing and a son-in-law in the family, he couldn’t even be together with his own daughter
Hearing his daughter’s weak, heart-wrenching voice, Maximilian clenched his fist and said, “I’ll try my best to get the money.”
Hearing this, Victoria’s pupils dilated and her heart trembled slightly in shock as she stared at Maximilian’s back.
It turned out he was indeed a decent man.
Maximilian turned around and glanced seriously at Victoria, who immediately turned her head away to wipe her tears, and then left the hospital amid the reprimands of his in-laws.
“Samuel, Maximilian is simply too unbridled!”
“Grandpa, how dare this good-for-nothing disobey you?”
At the moment, the Griffiths were fanning the flames.
Samuel just shook his head and didn’t say anything.
Could Maximilian raise so much money?
Oh, not easy!
Victoria watched Maximilian’s back as he left, feeling helpless.
Although she was the granddaughter of Samuel Griffith, her mother Laura was in charge of her family’s purse-strings.
This time, it was an order from her grandpa. Even if she had some personal savings, she couldn’t take it out.
At the entrance of the bank, Maximilian stood together with Gene Williams who was tall and thin. Gene put two hundred thousand dollars he had taken out into a cloth bag, and said,
“Take it now. There’s no rush for you to pay me back.”
Maximilian took the bag, his tears glistening with gratitude, and said, “Gene, I will pay you back as soon as possible!”
“Hey, what’s the rush? We are friends.”
Gene patted Maximilian’s shoulder and said with a smile.
“Gene, if you dare to lend him the money, I will cancel our wedding, and won’t marry you!”
Suddenly, a petulant chortle came from a beautifully dressed woman, who was carrying a bag and approaching aggressively.
The woman came up and gave Maximilian a slap on his face, pointing at his nose and scolding him,
“Maximilian, you’re really shameless. How many times have you asked Gene to lend you money?
If you’re not ashamed, I’m ashamed of your behaviour!”
“Emmie, what are you doing?” Gene got anxious and tugged at the fuming Emmie.
This woman Emmie was Gene’s girlfriend. She had a beautiful face, a sexy figure, but she aimed too high and was arrogant. She was kind snobbish.
“What am I doing? Gene, I’m warning you. If you dare to lend him a penny, I won’t marry you!”
Emmie shook off Gene’s hand, held her chin high, and wrapped her arms around her chest.
Naturally, a large crowd had gathered at the door. Gene desperately tried to explain.
“Emmie, Sissi is hospitalized with leukemia and needs money urgently...”
“It’s better for that girl to die! Anyway, why are you helping an enlisted good-for-nothing who can’t even acknowledge his own daughter?” Emmie spoke harshly.
Maximilian squeezed his hand holding the cloth bag, then loosened it, and stuffed the cloth bag into Gene’s hand.
“Gene, that’s okay. I’ll attend your wedding later.”
After saying that, Maximilian turned around and left the place at a quickened pace.
Behind him came Gene’s shouting over and over again, as well as the sound of his quarrel with Emmie.
Walking down the street, Maximilian felt miserable and did not know what he should do.
At that exact moment, Victoria’s phone call came, asking him to go back to the hospital.
After thinking about it, Maximilian re-entered the hospital and met Victoria who was nervous and flustered at the entrance.
She ran over and handed Maximilian a bank card, saying,
“There are over two hundred thousand dollars here. It is my personal savings. Just tell them you borrowed it.”
Maximilian took the card, looked at the exquisite beauty with delicate features in front of him, and his heart suddenly warmed up.
Victoria was kind and gentle as usual, but had suffer grievance for four years because of him.
“Victoria, I...”Maximilian was a little choked up, and never felt more defeated the way he did now.
Ever since Victoria married him, she had long lost her aura as a daughter in the Griffith family. She had become a laughing stock in the mouths of others.
Victoria sucked her nose and said with grievance, “I just don’t want Sissi to lose her dad.”
Maximilian’s lips trembled slightly as he said, “Thanks! I won’t let you and Sissi down.”
“Oh, sure enough, Grandpa is right. He knows you try to give this loser money!”
Suddenly, Franklin Griffith emerged from the side at this moment, and said with a cold smile and sneer in the corner of his eyes.
Franklin thought they were screwed.
Maximilian’s eyebrows clustered as he watched Franklin leaving, and Victoria was extremely anxious.
Then he said softly, “Don’t worry, I will get this weight on me.”
Inside the ward, Samuel sternly criticized Victoria, and the bank card naturally went to Laura, Maximilian’s mother-in-law, who scolded,
“Shame on you! How dare you ask my daughter for money? What a loser you are!”
Victoria tried to say something, but was directly stopped by Laura with a glare.
All the Griffiths followed to spew curses and criticize Maximilian to the hilt.
Suddenly, a weak shout caused the crowd to freeze!
“Daddy! Don’t scold my daddy......”
On the hospital bed, Sissi whimpered, her big eyes were filled with crystal teardrops.
Maximilian’s heart almost melted by the word “Daddy” that was barely audible.
Ever since Sissi was born, the Griffiths did not allow him to see Sissi for three years, and the longest time he had spent with Sissi was probably today. But Sissi never called him daddy...
This was the first time!
Victoria was so excited when she heard Sissi calling Maximilian daddy that tears were rolling down her face.
“It’s over! This little girl must be burnt out. How can such a wimp be her father?”
Someone at the side muttered. Samuel also looked pale and turned to sit down, holding Sissi’s tiny hand, and said.
“Sissi, have you forgotten what Grandpa has told you? He is not your father!”
This reprimand with a cold rebuke scared the lovely little Sissi. She held her month and her eyes were full of tears.
She looked at Maximilian and summoned all her courage to stretch out her small white hand amid the angry stares of the crowd around her and said.
“He’s my dad, and I want him to stay with me...”
“Stop it! He is not your father! It’s good to have great grandpa with you.”
Samuel responded directly with his chilled face, and he said to Maximilian without looking back,
“You only have two days to consider it, and I am sure you know what you should do for Sissi.”
Maximilian was in extreme pain at the moment looking at his daughter in the hospital bed, and for the first time in three years, she called him daddy.
He, no matter what, would cure Sissi! She was his little angel, his future!
“No, I’ll treat Sissi myself! She must use my bone marrow. She is my daughter!”
At this moment, Maximilian said with unprecedented seriousness.
For his daughter, Maximilian would do anything!
This cry also sent a shiver down the spines of the Griffiths in the ward.
At that moment, they felt a depressing aura from Maximilian!
After saying that, Maximilian directly turned around and left the hospital.
Victoria looked at Maximilian’s departing back incredulously. She was shocked and wondered whether he was finally responsible.
However, she was also worried about Maximilian in her heart.
He was a poor guy who was useless. How could he treat his daughter?
In front of the hospital, he dialed a number he hadn’t dialed for four years.
The call came through.
“Have you considered it, young master?”
The voice on the other end of the phone tinged with excitement.
Maximilian sighed helplessly and said, “Wilfred, I’ve decided to inherit the Dragon Sect.”
Maximilian thought secretly, “Okay, it's time for a showdown. I am a top second-generation rich! Dragon Sect has trillions of dollars in assets all over the world!”
“Even top consortia like the Morgan, the Rothschild, and others in the world had to show respects to Dragon Sect!”
“Young master, it’s great. You’ve finally made your decision. Where are you? I’ll be right over with the papers.”
On the other end of the phone, Wilfred was excited and his eyes were filled with tears.
The Dragon Sect would finally be saved.
“Put those aside for now. I need some money urgently now, two hundred thousand dollars.” Maximilian said.
“Young master, let alone two hundred thousand, two billion dollars is not a problem!”
Wilfred was excited and said.
“I’ll have someone send it to you now.”
Maximilian pondered slightly and said, “No, I don’t want to cause any misunderstanding. I’ll come over to you.”
“Okay, I’ll be waiting for you at the Royal Court Club in H City.” Wilfred said.
The Royal Court Club was originally a chain property of Dragon Sect.
Maximilian hung up the phone, sighed, and looked up at the sky.
Poverty is the original sin!
Without money, it was hard to move an inch, and Maximilian couldn’t even recognize her biological daughter.
Maximilian and his mother finally could return to the Dragon Sect after being kicked out for four years.
To be the puppet they put out in the nick of time?
Soon, Maximilian arrived at the Royal Court Club on his electric bike.
This was the most extravagant and prosperous private club in the entire H City, Chuzhou, and the standard for entry was ten million dollars at minimum!
And, anyone must be referred by an insider member to gain access.
So, the Royal Court Club was not the place anyone could get into just because he/she had money.
Anyone who could come here to spend money was a big shot with power and connections in H City!
Just as he walked into the hall, Maximilian was stopped by a petulant scolding voice!
“Hey hey hey! Who are you? Who let you in? Hurry up and get out. How dare you enter the Royal Court Club in rags?”
A beautiful woman in a red cheongsam stopped Maximilian and reprimanded him. She looked at him with contempt.
This woman was good-looking. She had a slender waist, a beautiful buttock, and an incredible figure.
Both sides of her cheongsam were open and her pair of ivory white thighs hidden aroused reverie. Every man who saw this would not stand still.
“Get out of here! This is not a place for a dirt-bag like you!”
Penny glared at Maximilian with disgust.
She had seen this kind of poor loser who wanted to enter the Royal Court Club so often.
Why didn’t he look at himself in the mirror?
