Anything For Her Chapter 242
Chapter 242 Threatening With Death
“Dad, I really don’t know what happened! Please believe me this time!”
At that, Josiah became so angry he almost passed out.
Morgan hastily supported the elderly man as he thought, Yale is really a fool!
“In that case, there isn’t anything we can talk about anymore. Leave. I’ll pretend that I never had you as
my son and take it that you’re dead.”
Josiah did not wish to waste any more of his breath on Yale. There was nothing they could discuss
Sophie then took out a bottle and shook out a pill for Josiah.
“Grandpa, take this.”
“Soph, I’m fine. I don’t need to take the pill,” Josiah reassured her as disappointment and despair
crashed into him. It was only at his elderly age did he feel that he was a failure. That feeling was
horrible, but there was nothing he could do about it. He was the one who did not teach his son well, so
who could he blame but himself?
“Dad, I’m sorry! I know I’ve done wrong now! I only ask the secretary to take you out, but I just wanted
to scare Sophie. I really didn’t plan to do anything to you. Please trust me!”
“Leave now,” Josiah repeated, looking away from his son.
“Morgan, you’ve always been by my father’s side, and in a way, you’ve watched over me since young.
Please talk to him on my behalf!” Yale uttered in a helpless tone. He did not want to be kicked out of
“Morgan, ask some men to kick him out. From now on, no one’s allowed to let him in without my
permission. Whoever lets him in will be kicked out just like him!” Josiah had finally made up his mind to
teach his son a stern lesson.
“Mr. Yale, you heard him. Please leave,” Morgan said as he walked over to Yale.
Morgan had no idea why Yale was still spouting pointless words there when Josiah was evidently still
At that, Yale turned to look at Sophie before turning to look at Charmaine. Both women were standing
near him, but they never said a single word the entire time.
“Charmaine, are you not going to say anything at all?” Yale did not know what benefit she could
possibly have if he, her husband, was kicked out of the house.
“I have nothing to say.” Perhaps Charmaine could have put in a good word for him for something else,
but this matter was not something she could bring herself to plead for mercy on his behalf. It was
simply too shameful. How can he do such a thing?
In response to that, Yale shoved the others away and rushed to the third floor.
Josiah could not help but furrow his brows at his son’s action. What else is he trying to do now?
“Old Mr. Tanner, Mr. Yale’s about to jump off the building!” one of the housekeepers cried out in a
trembling voice when she saw Yale on the rooftop.
Why does this rich family have so many troubles? I can’t believe he’ wants to jump off the building!
When Josiah took a few steps back, he finally saw Yale on the rooftop.
The moment he saw his son, he became even more disappointed.
He could not understand how he had an irresponsible son like Yale.
“Don’t worry, Old Mr. Tanner. I’ll be heading upstairs to get Mr. Yale down.” Morgan knew that Josiah’s
blood pressure could spike, so he was genuinely worried about the elderly man at that moment.
However, Josiah shook his head.
“I’ve never regretted anything I’ve done, but today, I…” he mumbled, not knowing how to express his
feelings at that moment.
It was simply too complicated to be described by words alone.
Charmaine was dumbfounded by the sight as well.
She never thought her husband would be someone like that.
“Yale, what are you doing? Can you grow a spine? So what if you’re kicked out of the Tanner family?
Are you telling me that there’s no way for you to survive without the Tanner family? How can you be like
Yale could not feel any emotions other than despair at that moment.
He yelled, “You make it sound so nice, don’t you? People are going to ignore me once I’m out of the
Tanner family. I don’t see why I shouldn’t jump if even my own father won’t believe me!” Yale truly never
thought of hurting his father.
“Y-You useless man!” Charmaine shouted. It was the first time she ever said something like that to him,
for he used to be the head of the family. However, his earlier actions had let her down.
Sophie gave the pill to Josiah and said, “Grandpa, you should rest first. I’ll take care of things here.”
She knew that Yale did not have the guts to go through with his threats. People like him were the most
He could kidnap Josiah to threaten her, but he would definitely not have the courage to jump off the
Death, after all, needed immense courage that Josiah did not have.
“All right, I’ll go in then. Soph, I’ll leave this to you. You don’t need to stop him if he insists on dying.”
With that said, Josiah went into the house with Morgan.
Morgan was right—Josiah’s blood pressure was spiking a little.
Meanwhile, Yale had threatened to jump off the building to scare his father into relenting, but alas,
Josiah did not even want to stick around to find out what would happen to him.
Furthermore, Charmaine remained quiet, and Sophie continued to stand at the side, eager to watch the
scene pan out.
Only the housekeepers seemed anxious as they looked at him.
Hence, Yale could not bring himself to keep up with the act anymore.
“Mr. Yale, come down quickly! Let’s have a proper talk with Old Mr. Tanner instead. Family members
should be able to talk to each other and come to a compromise!” one of the housekeepers said, trying
to convince him to get down.
“Sophie, you must be dying for me to jump. If I jump, I’m sure you’ll be the happiest person here.
There’s no way I’m going to grant your wish!”
With that said, Yale moved away from the ledge and went back downstairs.
He did not want to die. If he really had the courage to die, he would not have wanted so many things for
Charmaine pursed her lips and narrowed her eyes at that.
After Yale came down from the rooftop, he hastily scurried away.
Sophie then went back into the house to keep Josiah company again.
“Is he gone?”
Despite the fact that Josiah had entered the house earlier, he was actually worried about Yale. He
never thought that his son would do something as childish as that.
“Don’t worry, Grandpa. He doesn’t actually have the guts to kill himself.” There’s no way someone as
selfish as Yale would actually want to die.
Sophie did not comment on Josiah’s curt response.
“Grandpa, I have another mansion in Jipsdale if you don’t want to stay here. Why don’t you move there
instead?” she suggested, realizing that the place seemed terrible for her grandfather’s mental well-
“It’s fine, Soph. I’m old, and I don’t like running all over the place. All you need to do is to come back
more often to visit me.”
“All right, Grandpa. I’ll always be by your side.”
At that, Josiah held her hands.
“Soph, you don’t need to do anything special for me. I know you’re a smart kid. Isn’t International
Medical Association hoping that you’ll join them? Go on. Do what you want to do. There’s no need for
you to care about what others think. There’s also no need for you to spend so much effort on Tanner
Josiah knew that he had to let nature run its course instead of forcing things to work according to his
“I understand, Grandpa.” Indeed, Sophie knew all that—she just wanted to spend more time and stay
by her grandfather’s side.
He was old, and she knew he did not have that much time left to spend with her.
“Okay, run along now. I’m tired, and I’m going to rest now,” Josiah said, having felt tired the moment he
found out that Yale had come down from the rooftop.
“Mm. Got it.”
Sophie only left the Tanner residence after sending Josiah to rest. Just as she stepped out of the
compound, she noticed Tristan’s car was still around. Has he been here the whole time?
In fact, he never even once called and disturbed her.
