Shooting a glance at the head of the Sandel Family, Matthew knew he was out to get him. Due to Leanna’s incident, the Sandels kept thinking that Matthew had caught feelings for her. Yet as the family could not control Leanna, they could only harbor this hatred toward him inside. As they thought the perfect opportunity had presented itself, they started to aim for Matthew.
“I don’t know if there is anyone here capable enough to match up against me. But, what I do know is if every member of the Ten Great Families were as stupid as you, then I would have wasted my trip here,“ Matthew said t nonchalantly.
The blatant insult made Robert burst out with anger. “How dare you still be so arrogant at this trial set up by the Ten Greatest Families! Such impudence even after murdering the Lewis Family’s head! Men, break his legs first! Let him speak while kneeling!” Sandel’s head ordered furiously.
Immediately, men came rushing from the side, with all of them being masters hired by the Sandel Family. They knew the fact that Matthew was not a weak opponent by any means, so in turn, the dispatched people were all peak masters.
Seeing the situation quickly unravel, some of the families also sent out their people to surround Matthew.
Franklin, who witnessed the whole episode, was grinning ear to ear inside. This was what he wanted all along, to use the Ten Greatest Families to kill Matthew for him. Indirectly, it would equate to him avenging his brother. Hence, in doing so, he would naturally be able to ascend to the position of the family head!
Just then, Matthew sneered, which only served to enrage them further.
The command of the White‘s family head, which worked like a bomb, set off the masters, who dashed toward Matthew.
At that moment, a powerful voice came from the entrance. “Watch them closely, Ken! Kill whoever touches Mr. Larson!”
All their expressions changed at once as they followed the source of the voice, only to see Billy walking loftily toward them, accompanied by a group of his subordinates. His right-hand man, Ken, who was beside him, ran inside with a group of people, fiercely looking at the masters of the Ten Greatest Families.
Seeing this situation shocked Robert. ‘Billy personally came? Well, this is unexpected!’
In their eyes, the evidence that Matthew killed Donovan was so definitive that even Billy would not be able to deny that fact.
So, why did he come? Was he going to ignore the rules and immorally protect Matthew?
Drawing a deep breath, Robert spoke in a low voice. “I would never have thought that today’s Incident would alert even Master Newman! Do you still remember that you said you would not break the rules set by the Ten Greatest Families? Are you going to go back on your own words now?“
Walking to the courtyard, Billy sat down and said coldly, “Robert, I‘ll have you know that I never go back on what I’ve said.”
Robert Sandel, the one leading the Sandels, frowned, as no one had addressed him with his first name for a good number of years. But, as it was from Billy, he could only accept this fact quietly.
“If so, then what are your actions implying right now?“ Robert asked in a low voice.
Billy simply replied, “Mr. Larson is a friend of mine. If you want to trial him, I’m fine with it! But if you want to torture him to get him to agree to crimes that he never committed, then I’m afraid you’ll have to answer to me first!”
His statement made the Ten Greatest Families’ members buzz noisily.
Rebuking him, Robert said with a severe tone, “Nobody is torturing him, nor are we framing him, Master Newman! The fact that he killed Donovan is a fact! Is it wrong that we are out to seek revenge after he broke the rules set by us?”
Glancing at him, Billy questioned, “He killed Donovan? Do you have any evidence?“
Immediately, Robert answered confidently, “Of course we do! We have video evidence that Matthew hit Donovan that day, together with his autopsy report. According to it, he died due to hemorrhaging in his organs which was caused by heavy blows! There was only one person who fought with Donovan that day. If it was not Matthew who did it, then who was it?”
