Tiger was at The Grand Pavilion. Since Matthew would face the Lewises that night, he wanted to be there himself to help. That was also where Minerva was locked up.
After he went into the place Minerva was imprisoned, he heard her cackling like a maniac. “It‘s been an hour. I bet he still can‘t find her. Give up! She’s probably already in pieces now. That’s what you get for fighting the Lewises. If you guys won’t give up on Matthew, soon your family will get taken away and end up dead too! That’s what you get!“
When Matthew came into the room, the first thing he saw was Minerva hanging from the ceiling with her hands tied.
Tiger was smoking on the sofa, and his most trusted lieutenants were beside him. Even Max was there. After he became Ed’s lackey, he became a part of Tiger’s gang. Therefore, whenever Tiger needed help, he would bring his team over to lend him a hand.
At the moment, Tiger looked annoyed. “Dammit! Stuff that b*tch’s mouth. God, I can’t even hear myself think!”
Max took his sock off and stuffed it in Minerva’s mouth. Then he saw Matthew coming in. Max froze up for a second, and he leaped with joy. “You’re here, Mr. Matthew!”
Tiger and the others saw him, and they stood up. “Mr. Larson!”
Matthew smiled at them and went to the living room. “Sit…“
Everyone sat down.
“Thanks for helping out tonight,” Matthew said.
Tiger replied, “It’s an honor to help you, sir.”
He smiled and turned to look at Minerva. Her mouth was stuffed with a sock, and she kept making muffled sounds. Matthew waved his hand. “Take the sock out.”
Max quickly took the sock out of her mouth.
Minerva retched for a while before she growled, ”Damn you, Larson! Kill me if you dare! I’m not scared of you! I’ll be waiting for you in the depths of hell! You’re not getting out alive either!”
Matthew pursed his lips but said nothing. He stared at her as she spewed curses at him like a crazed wench. A while later, he sneered. “You call yourself a foreign aristocrat? Well, you look more like a wench now.”
Everyone burst out laughing.
Minerva‘s face fell. She had always taken pride in being a foreign talent. Now that Matthew destroyed her pride in just one sentence, she trembled with rage. “Cut the crap, Matthew! What are you here for? Trying to get me to tell you where Helen is? Dream on! It’s been an hour! They’ve already cut her hands and legs off, and it’s all thanks to you! The Lewises won’t stop at that! They’ll hunt you down! I’m dragging you down even if it‘s the last thing i do!” she roared.
Matthew smiled at her and took out his phone. He played a video to her that showed Helen coming back home. Matthew had taken the video on purpose to show it to Minerva.
Minerva was shocked after taking just a glance at the video.
“Impossible! You’re lying! This is a trick! You couldn’t have saved her! This must be an old video! You’re trying to trick me!”
Matthew sneered. “I don’t waste my time coming up with lies to deceive the likes of you. You know the video is real. You should know the clothes she wore tonight and how badly she was beaten up. And now you say it’s fake? Are you stupid?”
Minerva was having a breakdown. She knew the video was real, and that Helen was rescued. “Impossible. You shouldn’t have been able to find her!” Minerva gritted her teeth, growling.
