Cassandra was in bed brainstorming about how she could talk Rufus out of his revenge plan when she heard a knock on her window.

She sat up nervously and hurried to open the window. As expected, outside was Rufus.

Looking up at Cassandra, Rufus wore an enchanting smile.

Then, as if it were the most natural thing to do, he stepped over the windowsill and into her bedroom, stretched out his hands and embraced her tightly.

"Cassandra, it doesn't look good for Horace. We might see the end of him soon. I'm just taking my time but I'll attend to business again soon."

Recently, he had received information from the banks about the Tang Group's loan status. Lawsuits were arriving here and there. It won't be long before they go bankrupt. This made Rufus feel very pleased.

What Rufus said made Cassandra feel sad. She understood what he meant. The Tang Group was in grave danger and someone needed to save it fast. Rufus was the only one who could do that, but instead of finding ways to keep it alive, he was trying to think of ways on how to kill it faster.

"Rufus, are you really going to watch the Tang Group go down without even trying to help?"

Cassandra asked, looking up at him in his arms.

"I know where this is going, Cassandra. You've already tried talking me out of my plan to destroy the Tang family out of hatred. I told you once and I'll tell you again: I'm not going to change my mind. I will not do anything to stop what's happening to the Tang Group. Okay? This is what I want so please don't try to convince me to do otherwise,"

Rufus replied as he stroked her back with his hands gently.

"Everything you hate about your father can be resolved. If your mother were alive, she would hate to see you do this,"

Cassandra sighed softly, recalling the photos she saw of his mother in his seaside castle. She seemed to be a reserved and quiet woman. At a glance, it was clear that she had a very kind heart.

"I don't care what she would think. She had her own opinions, but she was wrong. She lived a miserable life. Moreover, she got ill at such a young age and spent ten years in bed as a vegetable before she finally died. She did everything she could do for a man who didn't even visit her on her deathbed," he said.

Talking about his mother filled Rufus's heart with more pain and resentment. He blamed all of her suffering to Horace.

"Rufus, you are wrong,"

Cassandra said as she pushed against his chest and looked at him intently with her black eyes.

"You should know the man your mother sacrificed everything for was not Horace. It was you," Cassandra said.

This hit home being a huge realization for Rufus.

"She had been working hard all those years in order to provide you with a good environment for growth. The reason why she kept you from your father must have been because she wanted you two to live a peaceful life. She would be very sad if she knew that you are now a man full of hatred,"

she continued as she looked at him with great sadness in her eyes.

"If she did what I was doing now, the man who made her suffer would not be alive in his worthless existence in the first place,"

Rufus replied as he let go of her, trying to suppr

Lionel," she shared.

Thinking about her past made Cassandra very sad. It was as if she was going through it all again. Still, if this was what it took to persuade Rufus, she was willing to do it.

"I was miserable and frustrated then. I disobeyed what my father asked me to do and I saw the Qin family as my worst enemy," she continued.

Cassandra could still see herself during those years, vengeful eyes and a crooked bitter smile on her face.

"Later on, my mother cried in front of me with desperation. She begged me to do it for she did not want to see everything that my father worked for be destroyed, and she didn't want our stable life to be threatened. To do as she wishes, I agreed to the marriage even if it meant giving up my freedom."

Cassandra remembered her mother's tears. She bit her lips and closed her eyes for it was difficult to see the memory.

But soon, she opened her eyes again and continued to look at him.

"I had no choice but to agree with what my mother wanted in the end, so I married Lionel. You have no idea how embarrassed I was, especially at the beginning; how much I wanted to escape this marriage and how much I hated my father."

Cassandra shook her head gently, thinking of herself at that time. She avoided her family. She did not even stay in contact with them. It was all to protect herself from more pain.

"Then, I saw the news that the Tang Group started a cooperative project with the Qin Group, so the Qin Group could continue to run. Suddenly, I felt that my heart was not as heavy."

Cassandra relaxed slightly. The memory clearly made her a little bit happier.

"Only then did I realize how much I have helped my family. My hatred for my father and the rest of my family disappeared. I found purpose,"

Cassandra said as she looked solemnly at Rufus with sincere and unshakable eyes.

"Rufus, I'm telling you this even if you don't realize it now. Nothing inspires forgiveness quite like revenge. They are your family whether you like it or not. You have the same blood and you're all connected. Their pain will become your pain and their joy will likewise be your joy."
