The convenient Bride novel Chapter 298

Juliet entered the study carrying the fruit. Seeing her father and Payton playing Go, she gently placed the fruit plate on the desk and walked over to sit beside Payton.


Payton turned to her and gave her a warm smile. Then, he focused on the board again.


Ebenezer looked at Juliet and asked indifferently, “Why don't you keep your mother company?”


“She wants to watch TV and asks me not to bother her." Juliet found it funny thinking of how her mother had forced her to go upstairs. She knew her mother was worried that Payton couldn't get along well with her father.


However, it seemed that her mother's worry was unnecessary.


From Juliet's perspective, they got along well with each other during the game.


Their game was diamond cut diamond. One game took an hour.


The game ended up with Ebenezer's failure.


He lost by half a point.


“Thank you, Mr. Elton." Payton looked at Ebenezer humbly and smiled slightly, his eyes full of gentleness.


Ebenezer looked up at Payton indifferently. It was hard for others to tell his emotion.


However, Payton could sense he was considering.


Payton couldn't help but frown. He didn't expect Juliet's father was so subtle that he failed to understand him.


Payton pondered when looking at Ebenezer, who lowered his head to tidy up the chess pieces.


Ebenezer's silence made Juliet feel a little uneasy. She gently pushed Payton.


Payton turned to her in puzzlement.


“Why did you win the game?" she whispered to him.


Payton was helpless and said, "I don't want to win." He would rather have lost the game.


Juliet’s confusion grew. As she was about to ask, her father interrupted in a cold voice.


"It's late. Juliet, Mr. Payton needs to go back.”


It was time for Payton to leave.


Payton raised his eyebrows and stood up. He bowed slightly to Ebenezer and said politely, "Thanks for your time. I'll come to visit you.”


Ebenezer remained silent and didn't look up at Payton.


Payton wasn't discouraged by his movement. Ebenezer had showed that he didn't like Payton since Payton entered the Elton's. It was reasonable that he ignored Payton.


"Dad, Payton is my boyfriend, can you mind your attitude?" Juliet shouted in dissatisfaction with Ebenezer's behavior.


Hearing her complaint, Ebenezer looked up at Juliet and said in anger, “Because he is your boyfriend, I didn't kick him out from the beginning."


Juliet was enraged as well, "Dad! How can you do that?"


"Why can't I do that?" Ebenezer asked.


Suddenly, the atmosphere grew tense. Both Juliet and Ebenezer were furious and didn't want to compromise.


Payton sighed, reached out to hold Juliet's hand and gently pinched her palm.


Juliet turned to look at him and saw his warm smile. He said, “Juliet, he is your father. You shouldn't scold him.”


“But....” Juliet tried to continue, but she stopped when exchanging looks with him.


She stopped talking in embarrassment and looked away from her unreasonable father.


Putting on a gentle smile, Payton looked at Ebenezer and was not upset at his words. He slowly said, "Mr. Elton, Juliet is your favorite daughter. I understand your feelings as a father. However ..."


He turned to stare at Juliet and continued in a serious tone, "Please believe me. I promise you I will let her live a happy life."


His eyes were filled with gentleness and emotions towards Juliet, as if she was indeed his beloved woman.
