Chapter 539 The Role Of Parents

Had Lysander not been sitting next to him, Maverick would surely have slammed the table in anger by then.

However, Maverick restrained himself, saying, “This b*stard is a cheater, always wanting what he can’t have. He caused so much pain for Lysa in the past, and now he has the audacity to come back and bother her. As Lysa’s biological father, are you just going to stand by and let him harass her?”

Josiah was well aware that any further explanation at this point would only make matters worse. He remained silent, his head bowed in resignation, sighing softly.

Caught in the middle, Howard truly found himself in a bit of a bind. “Maverick, please calm down first. I’m aware of some of the past events. The situation with Josiah was indeed handled poorly, causing Lysa to suffer. However, Josiah didn’t intend for this to happen. He simply misunderstood-”

Maverick raised his voice and interrupted, “He didn’t intend for this to happen? What do you mean? Everything I’ve said is what I’ve seen with my own eyes and heard with my own ears. If you don’t believe me, go back and ask your adopted daughter! Ask her what she’s been up to!”

Because of Lysanne, Maverick had a prejudice against the Thorne family, and inevitably, he also held resentment toward Howard.

Howard tactfully assessed the situation and said, “I’ve watched Josiah grow up, and I understand his character. We can’t deny him the chance to better himself, can we?”

“Character? His character is nothing but a cheap knock–off!” Maverick was so infuriated he could barely breathe.

He then proceeded to criticize Josiah by roaring, “This man once deceived Lysa, forcing her to divorce and make way for another woman. Now he regrets it, but it’s too late!”

Howard knew the woman he was referring to was Lysanne, his expression shifting through a myriad of emotions.

Maverick couldn’t stand his dilly–dallying on such a crucial matter and asked again, “Can you just tell me if you can agree to these three conditions or not?”
