Harry’s expression changed drastically as he said, “Father, I don’t think it’s appropriate.”
Master Crestfall frowned while looking at Harry in dissatisfaction. “Andrius is the most suitable candidate. Any objections?”
Harry’s expression turned bitter. He said in a small voice, “Father, I thought both Luna and Andrius just met, and they haven’t got the chance to know each other. Isn’t this arrangement a little too reckless?”
“Register first, they have all the time in the world going forward to get to know each other.”
As the master of the house, Belarus’ words had absolute power. He added in an authoritative tone, “It is decided!”
Luna remained silent throughout the ‘negotiation’. She had a glance at Andrius, signaling him to make a move.
Andrius immediately caught on to her gaze. “Master Crest…”
Master Crestfall interrupted Andrius and said strongly, “Andrius, we are family now. You can just call me grandfather.”
Andrius did not know whether to laugh or cry at the man’s suggestion. He continued, “I think the registration of marriage is a little inappropriate. Marriage should be based on mutual affection…”
“Andrius, don’t worry. Luna is a good girl. She always listens to me. As long as you don’t reject her, she will marry you,” Master Crestfall interrupted Andrius once more.
“Father, Andrius already said it’s inappropriate. Why do you still force…”
“Shut your mouth!” Master Crestfall glared at Harry. He then turned back to Andrius with a kind look and continued, “Andrius, what are you worried about? You can just tell me.”
“I…” Andrius stammered. He quickly came up with an excuse and said, “Grandfather, registration of marriage takes time and requires a lot of procedures. I’m not prepared. It’s really inappropriate to do it now.”
“You don’t need that at all!” Master Crestfall waved his hand and said, “I can have my people get the documents for you. All you need to do is be there and sign your name.
“If you are worried that you don’t have a proper career, I can give you 5% of New Moon Corporation’s shares, but you have to marry Luna right now.”
Master Crestfall’s words shocked everyone like a bolt of lightning.
Everyone was stunned and speechless.
5% of the company’s shares!
The old man had lost his mind!
When the other family members regained their composure, they tried to talk Master Crestfall out of it.
“Father, the company shares are not something you can simply give away. It’s even more inappropriate than getting married on the spot!”
Master Crestfall has made up his mind. He said firmly, “As long as I’m still alive, I call the shots here in this family!”
Andrius was shocked by the old man’s firm attitude. What made him so eager to marry his granddaughter off?
Why did he even consider offering 5% of his company shares?
Andrius simply could not wrap his head around the situation.
Had Andrius not agreed with Luna to call off the marriage, he might have been moved by the old man’s determination and sincerity.
Just when Andrius was about to think of another way to reject the old man’s offer, Luna suddenly said, “Grandfather, whatever you say, I’ll listen.”
Andrius was surprised by Luna’s sudden change of heart.
What made her agree?
She insisted on calling off the marriage earlier!
Master Crestfall chuckled. “Look, Andrius, even Luna agrees to marry you now. You don’t have to worry about anything else.”
“I…” Andrius was stuck for words.
With that said, Andrius and Luna were officially married an hour later.
Andrius still could not believe what just happened. “I’m married?”
If the news reached the Western Frontline and got into his Lycantroops’ ears, they would be utterly astonished by how casual and frivolous their Wolf King handled his marriage.
Looking at Andrius and Luna standing side by side, Master Crestfall smiled. “Luna, now that you are officially Andrius’ wife, you can bring him back to your place. My biggest wish now is to see your children while I’m still alive. You two better work hard and make it happen. Don’t make me wait too long.”
The newlyweds left Crestfall Manor and got into Luna’s Ferrari.
Looking at Luna, Andrius asked, “Ms. Crestfall, why the sudden change of mind?”
“Well, it’s all a ruse,” Luna said coldly.
Andrius was surprised. “Did you agree because of your grandfather’s 5% of company shares?”
Luna was being honest with Andrius. “My father is the eldest son of the family. He should be next in line to inherit everything, but my second uncle has been holding him back. With the extra 5%, we will have more power on the board. That is why I need you to fake the marriage and pretend to be my husband.”
Luna looked at Andrius with her crystal-clear eyes. “My grandfather isn’t healthy anymore, so I hope you can play along and keep this a secret from him.
“In three to four months, I will find an excuse and get a divorce. I will compensate you handsomely so that you won’t have to worry for the rest of your life!”
Andrius simply smiled and shrugged at Luna’s supposedly flawless plan.
He was not overly bothered. He came here under his master’s orders anyway, so he did not mind playing along with Luna’s plan. After all, it would be over in three to four months.
Andrius nodded. “Roger.”
His compliance made Luna look at him differently. Even her frosty attitude warmed up. She stepped on the accelerator and sprinted away from Crestfall Manor.
Luna’s mansion was located at Dream’s Waterfront.
The place had some of the most expensive real estate in the entire city. Those who could afford to buy a property at Dream’s Waterfront were either powerful or rich.
There was a two-story mansion at the prime location of Dream’s Waterfront.
The fiery red Ferrari drove into the front porch steadily.
Luna slid her slender legs out of the car.
“This is my house.”
Luna went into the living room and sat down on the couch leisurely. She looked at Andrius and said, “Since you are going to stay here for a while, let’s lay down some house rules.”
