Chapter 1

City of Greencliff, International Airport.



Several dozen men in black suits rushed out of the exit, each with a serious face, as if they were about to fight a formidable enemy.

All the passengers in the airport quickly made way for them, not knowing who had caused such a ruckus.

The male lead in the suit frowned deeply, then suddenly turned and left as if he had suddenly thought of something.

Soon they hit the pavement outside the airport.

Ethan Hunt was sitting on a bench, slowly exhaling smoke from his mouth.

"Master wishes you could come back, he missed you so much" the leader respectfully spoke to Ethan as he stood about five paces behind him.

In front of other people, this leader had a high standing, and no one dared to go against him.

But in front of this young man, he felt so low!

"He missed me?"

Ethan turned around slightly and there was a grin on his face. "Does he miss my influence? Or my money?"

If someone else said something like that, this leader would hate it. How could the rich and powerful Hunt family of Makrin City ever covet someone else's power and money?

But the man in front of him was different.

He is the sole heir of the Hunt family!

What shocked this leader even more was that he was known as the Eastern God of War, with extraordinary abilities and immense wealth!

"When he kicked me out of the family and married that vixen fifteen years ago, Ethan had died."

Ethan exhaled his last smoke, "Ethan Hunt now has nothing to do with the Hunt family in Makrin City."

He got up to leave.

"Don't send people after me anymore. Otherwise, I will kill everyone you send!"

His terrifying murderous aura immediately enveloped the leader.

The leader could only loosen his clenched fists after he saw Ethan disappear into the distance.

His back was already wet with sweat.

He was actually nervous in front of Ethan.

There is a car ready in the airport parking lot.

Ethan jumped in and immediately called.

"Winston, have you arranged everything?"

A voice came from the other side.

"Give me the address."

Ethan quickly hung up. He held a wrinkled sweet wrapper in his hand and his mind drifted back to fifteen years ago.

He was fifteen years old, kicked out of the Hunt house and roaming the streets.

He was cold and hungry when a plainly dressed little girl gave his only sweet treat to Ethan.

After that he was taken away by a mysterious person.

When he first appeared, the whole world shook!

Three years later, he was given the name, God of War of the East. He was only eighteen at the time!

Now twelve years have passed. He had the powers of a god and could shock the world, but Ethan chose to return quietly.

He would never forget that little girl.

He couldn't forget those pure eyes.

He couldn't forget that kind face.

Ethan put the candy wrapper carefully away and took a deep breath.

If someone he knew saw this, they would be shocked. The great God of War can be nervous too?

"I'm back."

The car shot out of the parking lot.

Meanwhile, at the Fairmont Hotel in Greencliff!

It really lives here.

The famous Palmer family in Greencliff accept proposals from men to find the best man to marry their granddaughter DianePalmer, and this attracts a lot of attention.

Diane sat in one of the function rooms, her pink fists clenched, her eyes bloodshot and feeling completely oppressed.

His mother, April, stood to one side, her face even redder with anger.

"William, they are definitely not good! If you are still a boy, go and reject your father!"

She screamed, "You mean you're going to see them destroy your daughter's happiness?"

What is this nonsense about finding a good husband? Nonsense!

April couldn't believe they were so nice.

The Palmers started as a small shop, and within fifteen years, they had grown to become the third-tier wealthy family in Greencliff. The head of the Palmer family, Gerald, exemplifies a successful entrepreneur who started from scratch.

Gerald has three sons: Steven, Nicolas and William.

Steven has taken over most of the Palmer family business, Nicolas is responsible for expanding the business in different cities. But William had lost the use of both of his legs in an accident, so he could only rest at home and be looked down upon.

Steven and Nicolas had conspired to persuade Gerald to agree to find a husband for William's daughter, and they even guaranteed to find Diane a very good man.

And in the end?

Never mind that all the candidates are nobody. One of them was even ten years older than Diane, and had a history of mental illness!

This is not finding a good husband for Diane at all. It destroys it!

William's face was also all red. He was as angry as his wife, but he dared not go against his father's wishes.

He knew Gerald's temperament – ​​he always made the final decision. No one in the Palmer family could go against what he wanted to do.

"He's Diane's grandfather, so he wouldn't do anything bad to her."

After thinking for so long, William embarrassingly squeezed these words out of his mouth.

April is about to collapse from anger. She pointed her finger at William, crying as she shouted, "How would I marry a weakling like you!"

He knew that William was a dutiful son and had always been very obedient to Gerald. After being crippled, he became even weaker and didn't dare fight Gerald at all.

But regardless of which man she chooses for Diane as husband to marry in the family, this problem will still destroy Diane!

Their family would become Greencliff's laughing stock!

April sobbed miserably as she screamed at William, Diane wept under her breath, while William could only clutch his numb thighs, showing how much he blamed himself and how helpless he was in this situation.

"Mom, don't yell at Dad again."

Diane managed to crack a smile, but there were traces of tears on her pretty face.

"Perhaps, Grandpa might think I'm a very nice guy?"

Of course he knew this was the tactic of his two uncles.

After graduating from university, he started working for the Palmer Group and had great results within two years, easily overtaking their children.

They were worried that she might struggle to control the business, so they instigated her grandfather to find a man who would be willing to marry into the family for her. In this way, he would lose his eligibility to take over the business.

He knew this, his parents knew too, but neither of them could fight back.

In the Palmer family, no one can go against what Grandpa has decided. Nobody.

The clock chimes rang and Diane got up.

"Let's go. If we keep Grandfather waiting, he will scold us again."

William felt bitterness and helplessness when he saw Diane tremble slightly. He didn't dare look at his wife's sullen face.

He knew that it was hard for them to stay in the family, but at least they didn't have to worry about their living expenses. If they were kicked out, what would they do?

In the main hall of the hotel, the place was brightly lit and all the guests had arrived.

Gerald was sitting right in the front, wearing a dainty tang suit, holding a cane and his face shining.

"Congratulations, Mr. Palmer!"

"Congratulations, Mr. Palmer! You have a wonderful son-in-law!"

All the guests took turns congratulating Gerald.

"Father, it's time to make the announcement."

Steven was standing beside him, his large, burly frame looking imposing.

He looked at Diane who wasn't sitting too far away, and announced in a loud voice, "We have the results here, and we have selected the most promising young man among the applicants."

The most promising youth?

Pfft, he knew in his heart that the extraordinary son-in-law they had chosen was the worst among all the suitors. This one apparently has some hidden ailments!

But as long as Diane married him, then she would have nothing to do with the family business.

Gerald would definitely never let anything belonging to the Palmer family land in the hands of someone with a different surname.

"Each person!"

Gerald stood up. Everyone looked up as he spoke. "Today I want to officially announce the man we have chosen for my granddaughter Diane!"
