Mr. Sanderson's Life At The Top
Chapter 3 Suddenly Became Rich
Trevor went back to his dorm room in dejection. "Money, money, money . All they think about is money!. Sylvia, I'll make you regret what you've done to me. Trevor's eyes were red and brimmed with tears. At that moment, he gave vent to her anger and sadness. All of a sudden, his phone rang, interrupting his cries. Without thinking, Trevor answered it at once. "Trevor, listen carefully. Your nineteenth birthday is only a few days away. I can't hide the truth from you anymore. The truth is, our family isn't as poor as it seems. We're actually wealthy and powerful. We didn't tell you the truth as there's a rule in our family that children must live a poor life before they reach nineteen. But actually, our family is involved in different kinds of industries all around the globe. As a matter of fact, we have gold mines in Africa and oil wells in the Middle East. On the other end of the line was a familiar voice that Trevor had heard all his life. Trevor smiled self-mockingly. "Dad, are you awake?. Stop fantasizing about being rich, will you?. When I was a child, you said that you bought a helicopter in the United States and a yacht in Venice. Look at me. I have to fend for myself and earn my tuition fees. Don't you thi nk you're bein g ridiculous?"
The man on the other en d paused for a second a nd heaved a heavy sigh. "Trevor, I u nderstand wh at you feel. I know you won't be able to acce pt it right away. When your grandfather said som ething like that to me, I also thought he was merely joking. But, Trevor , I'm tellin g the truth. I'll transfer one hund red million dollars to you as your allowance. At first, Trevor thought that the m an was his father. But the more he liste ned to it, the more i ncredulous he became. H e . looked at his phone’s screen, and found that it was a foreign number. He believe d it must be a scam! . "Liar ! Fuck off!" . Trevor roare d at the top of his lungs. He then hung up the call as soon as he finished speaking. He was drunk, and his mind was befud dled at the moment. He had vented a ll the bitterne ss in his heart. And now, he was e xhausted. Trevor closed his ey es and fell asleep at the foot of the bed. The next morning, he felt as though his head was being split. He kneaded his thr obbing temples and then slowly got up. Last night, he dreamt that his father called and confessed that their family was actually rich. "I must've lost my mind. I'm jus t a poor college student. How co uld I even dream of being rich?"
Trevor could not help but smile moc kingly at himself. And until now, his eyes were still f ull of bitterness. He picked up his pho ne and saw that he h ad an unread message. "The balance of your bank ac count with the ending number 666 is 100000003. 56 dollars. Trevor was stunned when he found one hundred million d ollars in his bank account. All of a sudde n, his eyes wi dened in shock. It w as r eal. There was indeed one hundred million dollar s in his bank account! . Trevor hurr iedly diale d a number. "D ad ?" . he cautiously aske d the instant the call was answered. "Son, ar e you so ber now? . I called you last night and noticed that somet hing was wrong with you. Anyway, I'm going to the M iddle East to inspect the mining of the new oil well. We can talk a bout it when I disembark. "Dad, are you for real? Te ll me. How did you get one hundred million dollars?" . He was at a loss that he could not process what his father had just said. He grew up in an environment that was poor.
