He refused to show the violet and murderous side of him in front of his mother. Otherwise, these people would’ve been long dead.
Emma stared intently at her son, and a pang of terror washed over her once she caught a glimpse of brutality in him.
Levi’s words briefly stunned Edward and his men.
“How arrogant! You actually think you can kill Mr. Edward? That’s ridiculous!”
“How dare a bastard like you be so boastful? You’re digging your own grave!” Edward’s men retorted in anger.
Unexpectedly, Edward grinned instead of growing mad. “That’s the difference between Mr. Damien and this bastard. Mr. Damien proves himself with his ability, but this bastard is all bark and no bite. The two of them are worlds apart.”
Right then, Michael warned him coldly, “Mind your language, Edward! You despicable old coot.”
Edward and his men could not believe what they had just heard from the head of the Joneses.
“What? Michael, how dare you talk back to us? You sure have got a lot of nerve.”
All this while, a mere servant like Caleb was sufficient to oppress the entire Jones family. Michael used to be too timid to utter a word in the presence of the Garrison clan.
But he had the guts to shout at Edward today.
His behavior was totally unacceptable in their eyes; they didn’t know that the man was completely unafraid of them now.
Michael smirked. Why should I be afraid when Levi is here?
“Damn you, Michael! How dare you speak to me that way! Believe it or not, I can get rid of the entire Jones family with only a few words!” Edward shrieked in rage.
Michael’s heart skipped a beat at the man’s threat.
Caleb alone – not to mention Edward – had the capability to wipe out the Jones family.
Such a feat was a piece of cake for them; they were way too powerful.
“I don’t believe you! The Garrison clan has always been haughty in Oakland City, and now you’re behaving atrociously everywhere else! Do you really think no one is able to stand against you?” Michael refuted.
“Are you really going to side with the bastard and his mom against our family?”
Edward shot daggers at him.
“Yes! So what if we go against you? We’re not afraid at all!” Mia, the head of the Joneses, suddenly declared.
“Yes! No one can touch my daughter and grandson as long as I’m around. Not only will I protect them, but I’ll reinstate them. She’s my daughter and a part of the Jones family!” Michael bellowed firmly.
Edward was enraged by his words. Wherever he went, everyone had revered; no one had dared to oppose the Garrison clan.
The Joneses were the first. They had actually outrightly challenged the majestic Garrison clan.
According to the rules set by the Garrison clan in Oakland City, all the Joneses had to be slaughtered for this act alone.
“Fine! You and your family are out of your minds for wishing to go against the Garrison clan. You lot indeed have balls of steel!” Edward growled.
He then sneered, “Do you really want to protect the mother-and-son duo? How are you going to do that? Or does the Jones family have what it takes to save them? What a joke!”
The man waved his hand, and dozens of fighters showed up instantly.
He had brought these highly skilled fighters from the Garrison clan along with him. Every one of them was comparable to Caleb.
There was no way out for the Joneses today.
“I’ll protect them even if it costs my life!”
Michael went all out, not just for his family’s sake, but also for Levi to see his determination.
“You can’t protect the Jones family!”
Edward was merciless.
“What if we join him?” A voice suddenly rang out.
At the next second, countless figures emerged from the woods on both sides of the road.
About a thousand of them appeared on each side – a large crowd forming behind and in front of them.
The men surrounded the place in no time.
