It had been three days since the funeral ceremony of Director Kim Kyung Hwan, the only son and successor of Goryo Group.

Amidst the piercing gazes of the family members who were all still dressed in neat black clothes, the company lawyer was signaled by President Kim to read out the contents of the will left behind by the deceased.

President Kim, who had just lost his son nodded slowly, and Lawyer Han, who had long been his right-hand man cleared his throat lightly and began to speak.

“As you all know, the late Kim Kyung Hwan always tried and worked hard for the company even until the last moment of his life. You must also recognize how much the deceased loved the Goryo Group.”

Hearing Lawyer Hans words, everyone in the meeting room seemed to nod their heads, except for one person who pouted his lips and smiled sarcastically.

That person was Director Kim Kyung Hwans biological son, Kim Geon Hyeong, who was now 20 years old.

Love the company? What nonsense. Even dogs would probably laugh at that. His father loves many things, except one. Making money.

It seemed that everyone in the room, especially those who were interested in his fathers legacy, knew that his father was a playboy who liked to play women with his handsome face and charisma.

Of course, right now the peoples attention was not on the mistakes and bad actions of the deceased, but on the names written on the six pieces of paper in the will and what would be their inheritance.

Such people were people who didnt mind forgetting and forgiving the deceaseds bad behavior, as long as they could get a share of the inheritance.

Inside the silent reading room, President Kim could see the silent laughter on Geon Hyeongs face. One of the deceaseds other sons, Jae Hyun, also looked at his adopted brother. Jae Hyun looked at him angrily and was annoyed at his disrespectful attitude. Meanwhile, Geon Hyeong stared back at him sharply, as if challenging him while putting a strange smile on his face until Jae Hyun finally averted his eyes first.

Lawyer Han again cleared his throat quietly as if asking for attention from the people in the room and slowly opened the will on the table.

“The house located in the Pyeongchang area and all shares of the company will be bequeathed to the deceaseds eldest son, Kim Geon Hyeong. Then, the shares in Kyung Hwan University will be given to Mrs. Oh Yeon Hee and her second son, Kim Jae Hyun…”

“What? Seriously.”

“Why even an out-of-wedlock child with no clear blood relationship…”

Before Lawyer Han could finish his sentence, exclamations of shock rang out from all corners of the room.

The contents of the will were completely unexpected especially for Jae Hyuns mother, Mrs. Oh, who had been patiently taking care of Geon Hyeong who was born out of wedlock.

Her gaze was full of anger and hatred. She couldnt believe that her husband would bequeath all the companys shares to Geon Hyeong.

For a woman who had been holding on to her dignity as her husbands lawful wife, the contents of the will were an unbearable humiliation for her. She felt cheated by her husband even after he passed away.

“Dad, was this all your idea?”

“Do you really want to know?”

Hearing the question of his son-in-law who looked so shocked that he forgot the various rules and manners he had been maintaining, President Kim just asked back with a flat face. Meanwhile, Mrs. Oh immediately turned her face away.

“Im sorry.”

That womans husband was a very stubborn person. He wouldnt listen to anyone, including President Kim who could usually make others tremble with fear just by looking at him. Her husband had only ever obeyed President Kim, her father, once, and that was when he married her.

By marrying the daughter of his fathers business partner, President Kims company would become stronger, her husband would gain freedom, and the woman herself… she would gain Jae Hyun.

Thats all. Just one time in his entire life. Insolent. Asshole. So this is how he got back at me?

“How dare he put Jae Hyun, who is his first son…”

Mrs. Oh who was looking at Geon Hyeong with a hateful gaze finally exerted all her patience and with great difficulty refrained from finishing her sentence.

She must have wanted to saychild born out of wedlock.

A child born out of wedlock. The status attached to Geon Hyeong was not a foreign word to him, either when he lived in America or in Korea now.

The marriage between the wealthy businessmans son and the up-and-coming actress ended in divorce before they even had a chance to legally register their marriage. Because of their playing with fire, Geon Hyeong has had to suffer the consequences since he was born.

“You must be happy that everything went your way, right?”

Geon Hyeongs face did not look happy with the surprising contents of the will.

His face looked calm, as if he had expected this or just like a person who wanted even more inheritance.

Sometimes, his face looked like a dissatisfied person.

“Not bad.”

Geon Hyeong even continued to answer Mrs. Ohs question who was looking at him sharply. Questions that didnt really need an answer from her.

Unable to contain her emotions, Mrs. Oh clenched her fists furiously. She then slapped Geon Hyeong on the cheek.

There were shocked gasps from all over the room, until finally President Kims voice was heard clearing his throat loudly to attract the attention of everyone in the room.

Before the people in the room could break it up, Mrs. Oh slowly retreated and the situation in the room seemed to calm down again.

However, Geon Hyeong did not want to just retreat.

“I guess youre not satisfied with just slapping me. But this is the last time because I wont just let you do this to me again.”

“You, how dare you threaten me!”

“Seriously. Ive never threatened anyone. Thats Moms specialty.”

Hearing Geon Hyeongs flat warning that showed no emotion and emphasized the wordMom with sarcasm, Mrs. Ohs body s
