Sasha was standing beside her father. When her father said he would take Matthew’s side, she felt like crying. It had been three years, and she had tried everything she could so her family could accept Matthew. She didn’t mind that they didn’t like him, since all she wanted was for them not to be prejudiced against him. She never expected this day would come when her father would start to take Matthew’s side.
She teared up, thinking that all her sacrifices finally paid off.
Liam was standing at a corner. He had a sense of impending doom, knowing that trouble was coming his way. If James and Helen took Matthew’s side, he would lose out on the family’s inheritance. However, he didn‘t dare say anything. James was just yelling at Demi for now, and Liam didn’t want to draw any attention to him.
A short while later, Matthew arrived at the villa with Helen. Matthew drove the car into the yard, and James quickly came over to take a close look at her, worried about her condition. Sasha, on the other hand, held Matthew’s hand gratefully.
“Thank you, Matthew,” James thanked him sincerely.
Matthew was surprised as he didn‘t think James would thank him.
Sasha held his arm tightly and whispered, “Matthew, Dad is grateful for you, and he said he’ll take your side no matter what happens.”
That surprised Matthew even more. ‘James actually said that?’
James nodded slowly. “Yes. I’ll back you up this time, Matthew, and I know you didn’t kill them! So what if it‘s the Lewises? We‘ll fight them until the very last breath.”
Matthew was touched, and he nodded back. ”I’ll handle this, Dad. We’ll be fine, so don‘t worry.”
James nodded again. ”Alright then, Matthew. I believe you won’t let me down.”
Matthew nodded again and left the house. After leaving a few guys standing sentry around the yard, he left The Grand Garden. it would be a sleepless night, for he had a lot of matters to deal with.
The first thing he did was make a call to Billy and ask him to send a few fighters to protect The Grand Garden. With how things were progressing, he knew things would get tense between him and the Lewises. They had a lot of thugs working for them. and some were professionally trained.
Tiger and his lackeys could handle normal thugs, but they would be hard pressed to hold back the professionals. Matthew had to keep his wife and her family safe before he could go up against the Lewises.
As for Natalie, well, he had no reason to worry. She lived in Lakeside Garden, and that place was Billy’s best guarded estates, or at least one of them. Every time he went there, he could feel a lot of powerful fighters hiding in the shadows. Nobody, not even the Ten Greatest Families of Eastshire, would dare make a ruckus in there.
On top of that, Matthew had asked Jinny to keep an eye on Natalie. Jinny couldn’t fight, but she could command countless poisonous animals that could take out any ambushers before they knew what hit them.
Billy obliged. He had actually sent a few of his men over a while back, and they were already hiding in the shadows, making it impossible for anyone to sneak in.
With Billy’s men protecting his family, Matthew didn’t have to hold back anymore. After that, he went to Tiger so he could see Minerva. Tonight, Matthew wanted to settle things with her once and for all.
