Michael was livid with rage when he heard Westley’s comment.
“Michael, I’m afraid you really made a grave mistake by handling the matter this way. Yes, Emma was wrong to give birth to him back then but still, he is your grandson! How can you let him live on his own outside and be labelled as a bastard by everyone else?”
Michael was left stumped in the face of Westley who was glib-tongued.
At the same time, he knew the Joneses in Chillshire had gained an upper hand by discovering Levi’s existence.
“I reckon you will let the kid attend the coming anniversary dinner? Alternatively, you can kill him before that and I will pretend I know nothing about him.”
Westley deliberately said so to provoke him.
Michael had no other choice but acknowledge Levi’s identity. “As he’s my grandson, of course he will attend the anniversary dinner. In fact, I wanted him to live on his own outside so that he could become tougher and more independent.”
He understood that if he refused to admit to the fact that Levi was his grandson, Westley would immediately reveal it to the public through the media.
By the time it happened, his family would suffer great embarrassment.
“Very well, I will look forward to seeing the kid there.”
Westley ended the phone call feeling satisfied.
Immediately after the phone call, Michael smashed his phone on the floor and broke it into pieces.
“Levi, oh Levi. What a troublemaker you are! You’re going to destroy my family!” Michael cursed angrily.
The rest of his family were incensed to learn about Westley’s phone call.
“Levi has always been a ticking time bomb for our family. Now, he’s about to blow up any minute and bring us down with him!”
“I’m sure the other branches will seize the chance to humiliate us at the anniversary dinner because of him. Are we able to bear with such a degrading moment at that time?”
“Exactly! Our family is going to be ruined for good just because of him. Now, not even the God of War can come to our rescue and he might even give us a piece of his mind because of the scandal!”
The face of all of them flushed with anger as an overwhelming desire to slaughter Levi immediately grew in their minds.
They could already picture what would take place during the anniversary dinner.
Everything was going to be destroyed by the bastard and the Jones Family in South Hampton would be turned into a laughing stock.
Michael fumed, “I really can’t figure out how those in Chillshire found out about Levi’s identity.”
“Grandpa, I was told by one of my men that Levi had a secret meeting with Travis from Chillshire earlier today! I bet they’ve been in touch all along!” Tyler said.
He added, “Things are becoming very clear to me now. I’m sure Levi must have contacted those in Chillshire to ask for their help so that his identity as your grandson could be properly acknowledged! How cunning he is!”
Every one of the family looked enraged because of Levi.
“I told y’all not to underestimate Levi long before this! In this way, not only will he be properly recognized as the heir of our family, but he can also make sure we treat him nicely instead of bullying him with the protection of those from Chillshire.”
Michael got breathless with anger after pointing that out.
“Grandpa, what should we do now then?”
A deep crease emerged on Wales’ forehead.
