After Franklin reached home, he immediately mixed the antidote with water and gave it to everybody. After drinking it, they all found their symptoms disappearing in an instant. This shocked everyone greatly as they all wondered where Franklin got such a miraculous elixir. Making things up, Franklin said that he knew a godly doctor who prescribed the medication for him.
Nobody suspected his words, and members of the family were extremely grateful to him instead. This made Franklin’s status rise once again in the family. Some even said out loud that he would be more suited to become the head of the family. All of this made him feel over the moon as he thought he had everything under his control! And so, the night went by peacefully.
By the afternoon of the second day, all the remaining nine great families had arrived at the Lewis Residence. The incident this time was even more severe than the last one.
Zachary, who was the last person to die, was the ex-inheritor of the Jackson Family. After being stripped of the inheritor title, one would be no more than an average person who didn’t affect proceedings. But this time, the person who died was a current family head of the Ten Greatest Families.
Not only were all ten heads present, but even their old masters were also there. Alongside them were a large number of masters. This time, the families all had a secret agreement. That was, even if Billy himself were to show up, they would still hold him accountable until the end.
After all, if they conceded this time, the prestige of the Ten Greatest Families would fall into the drain from here on out!
At the same time, at the Grand Garden, Matthew was preparing to leave after packing and eating breakfast. Although Sasha wanted to follow him, she was stopped by him. He knew this trip would involve bloodshed, and he did not want her to witness such gory scenes firsthand. After seeing Matthew off, Sasha went back inside with a gloomy face.
Comforting her, James said in a low tone, “You don’t have to worry so much, Sasha. Didn’t Matthew say that nothing would happen? Rest assured, Matthew said that he did not kill him, and he is going there to explain it to them.”
After Matthew rescued Helen last night, James had even more confidence in him. Nodding, Sasha wanted to continue when suddenly Demi and Liam came rushing in.
Wearing an ecstatic smile, Demi immediately said as she came in, “Dad, Mom, there’s something I’d like you all to see!”
Curious, Helen and James asked, “What is it?”
Taking her phone out, Demi played a video. In the video was a spectacle where everyone was fighting. The fight was the exact one at the bar which happened yesterday. The subject of the video seemed to be Matthew and Donovan, as it clearly focused on those two. James then saw clearly that Matthew hit Donovan so hard that he stumbled backward, spewing blood. Right then, James and Helen‘s expressions changed.
‘Did Matthew really hurt him?’
“See? I said it, didn’t I? There’s more than meets the eye! He’s been pulling the wool over your eyes the whole time! Only one punch? You call this one punch? He was going to pummel him to death! See, he’s even spewing blood!“ Noisily touting this, Demi was extremely excited, as if she had caught hold of Matthew’s crime.
Sasha asked worryingly, “Where did the video come from? Is this fake? How is this possible?”
Glancing at her, Demi replied, “Fake? I’ll have you know that Liam got this from a friend who got it from the police. Apparently, they had the video appraised by experts, and it was real!“
James cringed. “Was Matthew really that ruthless? There’s no way, is it?“
Immediately, Demi rebuked, “Dad, what kind of saint do you see Matthew as? He has been pretending to be all nice and polite in front of you guys! Have you forgotten how he beat my husband? Also, he smashed a beer bottle on my husband’s friend’s head! He is just a barbarian! When he goes crazy, he can do just about anything!“
