Chapter 801 Why Did You Abandon Me?
Cheyenne blinked and didn’t react for two seconds. “What… what did you just say?”
Lucas didn’t say anything and merely looked at Cheyenne with heartache and sympathy.
After being stunned for several seconds, Cheyenne finally understood what Lucas meant. She was so shocked that her jaw dropped, and she looked as if she had been struck by lightning, causing her mind to go blank for a long time.
This news was too shocking!
Cheyenne naturally knew who the woman who called her was.
But she didn’t expect her to be her biological mother!
The expression on Cheyenne’s face was bizarre, and she seemed to be caught between tears and laughter.
“It turns out… she’s my biological mother!
“No wonder she looks at me so strangely… “No wonder she wanted to invest so much money in the Brilliance Corporation…”
Cheyenne lowered her head and muttered to herself with an extremely complicated expression.
But Cheyenne didn’t get extremely emotional because of this and instead tried her best to remain composed and restrained, making Lucas admire her strength even more and feel more sympathy for her.
He didn’t say anything more but silently started his car and drove toward Amelia’s kindergarten.
He knew that Cheyenne must be in a complicated mood now, so he was willing to give her enough time to think through this matter properly. But regardless of what choice she made in the end, he would face it together with her.
If Florence could put aside her schemes and genuinely treat Cheyenne as her daughter, Lucas would be willing to cut her some slack on Cheyenne’s behalf and even give the Howards some help.
But if Florence only treated Cheyenne as a pawn and tried to make use of her with kinship as an excuse, Lucas would never let her off!
On the way to pick up Amelia and on the way home, Cheyenne kept frowning while pondering over this matter.
But when they were about to arrive home, Cheyenne finally made up her mind and said, “Honey, I’ve decided. I want to see her!”
Lucas didn’t say anything and nodded calmly. “Okay, I’ll go with you.”
Since Cheyenne had made up her mind to meet Florence, he had no reason to oppose.
It was Cheyenne’s right to make this decision, and even though he was her husband, he wouldn’t meddle with the reason that he was doing it for her own good.
This was the greatest difference between him and Florence.
“Honey, you’re so kind!” Cheyenne grabbed Lucas’s left hand gently. With William and Charlotte at home, as well as Jordan and Stanley, whom Lucas had sent to be their guards, Amelia would definitely be well protected. Thus, Lucas sent Amelia back home and then drove Cheyenne away.
Florence and Cheyenne had arranged to meet at the Lion Restaurant in Orange County.
Half an hour later, Lucas and Cheyenne arrived outside the Lion Restaurant and entered the private room that Florence had booked.
Florence and her bodyguard Andy had been waiting in the private room for a long time, fidgety and anxious that Cheyenne wouldn’t show up or Lucas wouldn’t let her come.
Upon seeing the door of the private room opening, followed by Cheyenne’s beautiful face, Florence finally heaved a sigh of relief. “Miss Carter, you’re finally here.”
At this moment, Florence still didn’t know that Lucas had already revealed her identity to Cheyenne.
Florence planned to first get close to Cheyenne at the dinner table, then mention that she was her biological mother and explain to her that she had abandoned her back then because she had had no choice. She would finally tell her how sad she was at the time.
She expected that they would have a touching reunion scene with the two of them hugging each other, and Cheyenne would naturally stand on her side because of how touched she
The moment she saw Lucas enter after Cheyenne, her face stiffened for a moment before greeting him warmly. “Mr. Gray, you’re here too. Quickly have a seat!” It was as if she had already forgotten about the conflict she had with Lucas at the entrance of the Stardust Corporation building.
In Florence’s opinion, she and Cheyenne were blood-related, and there was nothing Lucas could do to sow discord. His obstructions would only push Cheyenne toward her.
Lucas knew full well what Florence was thinking, but he didn’t expose her and instead raised his brows and stood beside Cheyenne.
But Cheyenne didn’t take a seat and instead stared at Florence. “Since you’re my biological mother, why did you abandon me back then?”
Her question immediately made Florence, who was smiling pretentiously, freeze right on the spot.
She never thought that Cheyenne had already found out that she was her biological mother, disrupting her plans.
“You… you already know!” Florence smiled unnaturally and raised her hand to brush the hair at the corner of her forehead.
Looking at Cheyenne standing in front of her and questioning her, Florence suddenly burst into tears and felt miserable.
No matter what, the woman standing in front of her was indeed her daughter, to whom she had carried in her womb for nine months and given birth.
Seeing the tears in Florence’s eyes, Cheyenne couldn’t help breaking down into tears too.
Ever since she learned from Karen that she had been abandoned by the roadside as a child, she had been feeling a sharp thorn in her chest.
Although Cheyenne didn’t show anything in front of William, Charlotte, and Lucas, who showed her great concern, she couldn’t help herself and start wondering who her biological parents were and why they had abandoned her.
Cheyenne had imagined countless reasons why. Perhaps her parents had left her by the roadside because they were too poor to raise her, or maybe they had gotten into an accident and had to give her up.
But she now knew that her biological mother was Florence Howard, a member of the Howard family, one of the eight top families of DC. It meant that she held great power and wealth.
Besides, even if she had accidentally lost Cheyenne, given the abilities of the Howards, she could have easily found her.
But in the past two decades or so, Florence had never once appeared in her life. Even when she showed up in front of her, she had never acknowledged her either.
Cheyenne just wanted to ask her why she had abandoned her in the first place and why she didn’t want her.
Cheyenne’s questioning left Florence speechless.
After a long time, she finally said, “It has been years since it happened. All you need to know now is that you are the daughter of Florence Howard, and you’re the future successor of my company, the Flor Group. You only need to know that I love you very much. That’s all!”
She didn’t answer Cheyenne’s question.
A trace of disappointment appeared in Cheyenne’s eyes. She didn’t care about being the successor of Flor Group or whatever. All she wanted to know was why Florence had abandoned her back then.
“Answer me. What happened back then? Why did you abandon me?” Cheyenne questioned once more, tears staining her face.
Florence turned her face away and gritted her teeth without answering.
“For the sake of power and status!”
At this moment, the door of the private room was suddenly pushed open from outside, and a gorgeous young woman entered.
