Spoiled By Mr. Russell By Luminous Night Chapter 513
lt;pgt;Chapter 513 Arianna came home after shopping and noticed that only her mother was there. Arianna
knew she was explicitly waiting for her.
lt;pgt;“Hi, mom!” She called out smilingly, walked over quickly, and put down the bag in her hand. “I bought
two new scarves for Dad, and seeing that the new style looked nice, I bought two for you too. You can
try them on to see if you like them. “Arianna opened the bag and reached in to remove the scarves.
lt;pgt;“No need for now. Let it go,” Eloise said, “Arianna, come here.”
lt;pgt;She motioned for Arianna to sit beside her and ordered the housekeeper to bring over a black truffle
cake. Then Eloise waved her hand to signal the other housekeepers to step back. Only she and
Arianna remained in the living room.
lt;pgt;Looking around, Arianna said smilingly, “Do you have something to tell me, mom?”
lt;pgt;Eloise nodded. Her gentle eyes wandered on Arianna‘s face. She raised her hand and gently stroked
Arianna‘s hair, “My dear, time flies so fast. You‘ve grown so much.”
lt;pgt;“Well, don‘t put it that way, mom. I didn‘t grow so big overnight. You were there watching me grow up,”
Arianna giggled and bent over to pick up the cake.
lt;pgt;“Yeah!” Eloise said with emotion, “I birthed you and watched you grow. You are brilliant, but what a
pity.” She said nothing after that but looked sad instead.
lt;pgt;Arianna naturally knew what her mother wanted to say. Unfortunately, she was a girl and could not
inherit their family‘s property.
lt;pgt;It did not matter how society was now because the Tanner family was still old fashioned. Only men
could inherit the family business. However, they lacked males, and one of their family members hadlt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;only one son, but he was not focused on business. Joseph and Eloise, on the other hand, had only one
lt;pgt;But wait, Arianna‘s father also had an illegitimate son. He was a brat, so he could not join the line of
descendants. Even if he was born a leader, he could not inherit the Tanner family‘s property openly and
lt;pgt;That was the reason behind Joseph and Eloise‘s argument. It was because Joseph wanted to take in
his illegitimate son and wanted Eloise to accept the brat into their family tree, meaning the illegitimate
son could inherit the business.
lt;pgt;Of course, that was ridiculous to Eloise. How could Joseph expect his wife to accept a child born from
another woman and give him everything? Why did he think Eloise would agree? There must be
something wrong with Joseph.
lt;pgt;“Mom, this cake is delicious!” Arianna changed the topic smilingly, always avoiding embarrassing
questions in time to make the atmosphere less awkward.
lt;pgt;Eloise naturally knew her daughter‘s intentions, so she felt even more guilty.” You‘re a grown–up now,
and I don‘t want to hide these things from you anymore, my dear. I know you‘re aware of the situation
and what‘s been going on at home. I want to ask you how you feel about it.”
lt;pgt;Arianna held the cake, paused, then smiled softly. “How do I feel about it? What do you mean, mom?
How do you think I should feel?”lt;/pgt;
