Seeing Victor and Rosie, the guests quickly shut up, not daring to speak freely as they had just done.
Josef’s expression did not change when he saw Rosie. The woman was friendly earlier and had spoken up for the two, but she was Victor’s daughter after all. Therefore, Josef could not confirm whether she was a friend or foe.
However, Caitlyn was excited as she yelled, “Ms. Barlowe, you’re finally here. These people are so mean. They’re talking bad about me!”
“I’m sorry we neglected you…” Rosie guiltily walked over and apologized to Caitlyn.
“It’s alright. It’s a good thing you came, Ms. Barlowe,” Caitlyn said happily.
In Caitlyn’s opinion, Rosie was her and Josef’s lifesaver.
However, Victor standing next to Rosie suddenly said, “Morten, you love running around and causing trouble! I have invited you here today because I have something to discuss with you, but you provoked all the guests as soon as you came. Are you deliberately making trouble?”
As soon as Victor said this, all the guests, including Jacob, looked smug.
Sure enough, Victor sided with the affluent families!
Rosie froze. It took her two seconds to come to her senses and ask in confusion, “Dad, didn’t you invite Mr. Lennon for me…”
“Shut up! You have no right to speak here!” Victor shouted.
Rosie’s expression froze as she shut up sheepishly.
Caitlyn’s smile, which had been on her face for less than five seconds, faded again at the sight of that scene.
Josef squeezed Caitlyn’s hand, signifying her not to be afraid.
Then he looked at Victor with a smile and said, “Mr. Barlowe, you’re the head of the Joules Town government after all. After all these years of deciding cases and trials, you’re not going to blame me for everything, do you?”
“What’s the matter? Are you going to deny it? Did you not cause the drama tonight?” Victor snorted coldly as he spoke.
His eyes were even colder as he looked at Josef. Victor was disgusted with Josef.
As soon as Josef came to Joules Town, he struck up a quarrel with Billion Trees Group and started Lennon Group. The mess snowballed, greatly shaking the town. Later, Josef was involved in Jimmy and Jane’s arrest, and Victor was a man who could not tolerate others meddling in his work.
How could he, who was narrow minded, like Josef?
However, these were not the main reasons.
The real issue was that his daughter, the apple of his eye, who had never met Morten, had a crush on him just because of what he had done.
How could he put up with that?
Looking at Josef right now, the fury in Victor’s chest was burning so hard that his eyes were almost spitting fire.
“Morten, can you stop causing trouble in Joules Town? You’re from River City, right? Why didn’t you stay in River City? Why did you come to Joules Town and make a scene?” Victor asked, clenching his teeth.
“I don’t want to, but I have no choice,” Josef said with a smile.
Seeing the smile on Josef’s face, Victor instantly became angrier.
It was the first time he had ever seen a young man so arrogant in front of him!
