The muscles on Rufus's face tightened. His fists clenched and unclenched at his sides.

"Their happiness would bring me pain, and their pain would be my happiness."

His face remained closed off and distant, the coldness of his eyes unchanging. Cassandra could tell from the firm lines of his face that he was restraining himself and fighting against his own anger.

She was at a loss with his stubbornness.

"Are you really going to stay as an outsider and just watch your family fall down?"

Cassandra pressed again.

"This is my business, Cassandra, and the decision will be mine. Have you forgotten what they did to you?"

Rufus's eyes closed in on her as he continued.

The people she was calling as his family had treated her with nothing but disrespect. Why was she standing up for them now? Had she forgotten? If so, he would remind her of everything now. His eyes glinted with cruelty as he spoke, "Let us recount, shall we? First, there is Jill. Form the moment you stepped inside the house, she had insulted you, from head to toe, and over and over again. Then there's Horace. During the time when you almost lost the company your family worked hard to build, he sneaked in and tried to buy it behind your back instead of helping you. And of course, let's not forget Lionel. From the beginning, your marriage had been a farce. But he just had to take things further and got another woman pregnant. His lover even moved in the Tang house. Have you forgotten that embarrassment? How can you be telling me all this?"

Rufus did not bother masking his words. He knew he was rehashing old pains and reopening past wounds, but if that was what it took for Cassandra to see sense, he would go that far.

Cassandra took deep breaths to calm herself down. She knew he was intentionally wounding her, coaxing her to agree with him. It would be all too easy to give in and lash out in anger, but she knew that was not what either of them needed. "No, I haven't," she began. "I haven't forgotten any of that. But I know that holding on to my anger will do me no good. It would be so easy to choose revenge, but seeing them suffer will not give me the peace that I am looking for. It would just torment me further, just as how it is eating at you now." She stepped closer to him, holding his gaze steadily. "Listen to me, Rufus. It is easier to be angry, but the right thing to do is to forgive. I'm sure that when things have worked out, you will understand that family is the most important thing in your life. You're angry, but more than that, you are hurting. And we both know that punishing them would not give you happiness. Don't let this become a regret."

Cassandra tried her utmost to convince him, but Rufus would have none of it. His gaze was icy as he answered her, "I have already made my decision a long time ago, Cassandra. Nothing you say can persuade me. Stop wasting both of our time."

He walked to the window and looked outside before continuing, "I'll make arrangement for you soon. Just stay patient and wait for me."

With that, he jumped out of the window and disappeared into the darkness of the night.

Once he was back in his room, he sent Victor a message, instructing him to switch the camera to the original one Clark installed.

Rufus knew that Clark had insta

ife. The man she loved came back and declared his love for her. She held on to his every word, all her doubts dissipating.

They held each other for a long time. Passersby looked at them smilingly. They were the perfect picture of lovers.

None of them saw through the facade and uncovered the cruel glint in the man's eyes.

For the next few days, Cloris was beyond elated. Arthur would wait for her to finish her classes in the afternoons. They went out, had meals together, and explored every corner of the city.

Cloris trusted Arthur more and more with each passing day. He was treating her so kindly, and there was nothing more she wanted than for those days to continue.

Recently, a piece of gossip was spreading all over G City.

Rumor had it that Rufus was not Horace's son who was sent abroad when he was a child. In truth, he was nothing more than a bastard.

Horace was an ambitious man who had nothing to his name. When opportunity presented itself, he left his pregnant lover and married Jill because of her rich family background in order to take over the business. He was a heartless, selfish man and would stop at nothing to have what he wanted. Now, it seemed that he was finally being punished. He lay on a hospital bed, wasting away day by day, but he lived, long enough to be watching his company crumble before his very eyes. He was on the way to lose everything, and there was nothing he could do.

Even their allies and partners had turned away from them. There was no one who would want to offer a hand to them in such a seemingly hopeless gamble.

In the Union, some people were already taking steps to dismiss them from the position of Director. Nobody believed that the Tang family still had any ability to lead.

The Zhuang family, on the other hand, were receiving endless commendation. Instead of kicking the Tang family at their lowest, Arthur went abroad on a holiday. It was a well-favored step, and everyone believed that he was being kind to the Tang family when it was approaching its end.

But the Tang family needed no help for its ruin. With serious problems here and there and being neck-deep in debt, there was simply no way for them to survive.
