Sarah hadn’t expected him to mention it and lifted her head quickly in defense. “Dad, no, that’s not true…”
Mr. Thomas raised his hand to stop her. “You’re a good girl. No need to explain yourself to me. I know it’s not easy to be between them, one is my wife, and the other is my son. How could I not know? I just want to persuade you.”
Sarah looked up at him, seemingly waiting for his advice.
Mr. Thomas put his hands on the table with fingers crossed, thinking for a while. “Rather than to persuade you, I am going to beg you. My wife has a bad temper, but she has made great contributions to my family over time. Without her, my business wouldn’t be running so smoothly. Everyone knows that my wife helps me a lot, and people admire me for having such an amazing wife. What’s more, as a couple, we have a good relationship and have always gotten along well, except for the difference in opinion when it comes to Charles’s wedding.”
“Dad… I’m sorry…”
Mr. Thomas stopped her again. “It is not your fault, please just hear me out. I have been with my wife for over thirty years now, she has done many things for me. I always spoiled her and compromised with her, even when she had a bad temper. But when it comes to Charles’s marriage, I support you firmly, whereas my wife is completely against it. I won’t let her break you up, so please, if something happens in the future, be tolerant toward my wife no matter how serious it gets.”
