Meanwhile, at the hospital, Joseph did not expect to meet his elder brother in this state and felt overwhelmed with emotions. He did not even know what to say. “Derrick. I…”
Having discovered what had happened over the past two days, Joseph went from shock to acceptance to slowly understanding the truth.
It was only a couple of months, but he felt like he had finally woken up from an endless nightmare. Joseph thought he had everything under control but now realized he was just a pawn in someone else’s plans.
In the end, all he had gotten was this.
Derrick pulled a chair over and sat in front of his younger brother, asking warmly, “How are you feeling now?”
“How else would I be feeling? I’ll have to live like this for the rest of my life.” Joseph sighed, looking older than even Derrick.
“Derrick, I only have a favor to ask. I know I’ve done you wrong, but I hope you can promise me something since we’re brothers, and I’ve ended up like this.”
“Is it about your son?” Derrick thought about it and asked.
Joseph nodded. “He’s my only son. I have always wanted to give him the best and leave everything to him, but I didn’t think all my efforts would be in vain. After so many years, I couldn’t give him and his mother what they deserved, and he had grown up without a father. Now…”
Damian had gotten arrested for making a false report and perjury. Joseph’s two children were in jail, and Eloise had given him the cold shoulder for quite some time. Meanwhile, Elizabeth visited him twice just to kick up a storm and left in tears.
Joseph had been in nurses’ care. He would have been more miserable if he was not rich or a member of the Tanner family.
“Joseph!” Derrick sighed. “Have you ever thought about Arianna?”
“Huh?” Joseph looked confused.
“I understand your concern for your son, but Arianna is your daughter. Have you ever worried about her?”
Joseph frowned, not quite getting what he was trying to say. “I surely have. I’ve given her the best since she was young and treated her like a princess.’
“Really? Still, all you cared about was what you could do for your son. Have you done the same for her?”
Stunned, Joseph answered after a pause, “After what she had done, I’ve already been fatherly enough not to hold a grudge against her.”
