Robert fell silent for a moment before he demanded, “Aaron, you were the one who brought up this matter just now. Now, you should be the one to apologize to Matthew as well!”
As soon as he uttered those wards, the expressions of everyone in the Lewis Family turned sour. Even the other families were looking at Robert with dissatisfied gazes. Robert was outrageous for demanding someone else to apologize. As the leader of the Ten Greatest Families, it was simply disdainful to watch him push the blame on a younger person at the most critical moment.
Billy smiled without saying a word. This was the outcome he had wanted, to weaken Robert’s influence in the Ten Greatest Families. That way, it would make it even easier for Matthew to gain control of the Ten Greatest Families in the future. On the contrary, Aaron’s expression was sullen as he was truly unwilling to apologize to Matthew.
At that moment, Felix walked out and cajoled In a soft voice, “Mr. Larson, how about I apologize to you on Aaron’s behalf? He had just lost his father and is still grieving his death, so he might’ve spoken out of line. I hope you understand, Mr. Larson.”
Felix’s words once again made the Lewis Family look at him with admiration. After experiencing such a big event, Old Master Lewis was almost at his limit, and the Lewis Family was lacking someone who could lead them. At that moment, Felix emerged and saved Old Master Lewis, and now he was taking responsibility and apologizing on Aaron’s behalf. His actions made the Lewis Family look at him differently.
Matthew replied, “Felix, it’s not crucial to apologize to me. As Aaron said, my wife was not injured in any way, and Dickson died. For me, this matter has already been written off. However, what will happen to the people that Dickson had hurt before?”
Felix was silent for a moment before he responded solemnly, “Today,. I‘ll pledge a vow. Although Dickson is not from the Lewis Family, he still has our blood, so we are willing to bear what he has done. As for those victims, I will personally apologize to each of them and compensate them fairly at the same time!”
With those words, the other members of Ten Greatest Families became impressed with Felix as well. Now that Donovan was dead, the Lewis Family couldn’t wait to cut all their remaining ties with Dickson. Only Felix was willing to apologize and make amends for this incident. This was what it truly meant to take responsibility!
Upon seeing everyone’s expressions, Matthew gloated inwardly. What he had to do now was to help Felix rise to power. He wanted Felix to become the patriarch of the Lewis Family and let him have absolute control over them! In fact, Felix’s current words and actions were all instructed by Matthew beforehand.
Hearing that, Matthew nodded in satisfaction. ‘Okay, then the issue about Dickson will end here. Next, let’s talk about why I hurt Donovan. I wanted to teach Dickson a lesson, but Donovan stopped me. Wasn’t I supposed to fight back? Since he had thrown the first punch, things got out of control. and one of us was naturally bound to get hurt, so what does it have to do with me?”
Everyone in the Lewis Family fell into deathly silence, and even Aaron couldn’t say anything to refute Matthew’s words.
With a sneer, Matthew continued, “It seems that everyone has no objection to my statement. Good. Let’s continue.”
At that moment, Matthew suddenly pointed at Aaron and shouted, “Aaron, now it’s time to settle matters between us!”
Aaron was taken aback by the sudden declaration. “W-What matters are there between us to settle? I didn’t take Helen last night, and you know that! Franklin was framing me, so what will come out of you coming after me?”
Unfazed, Matthew replied icily, “I’m not talking about Helen. I’m talking about the fact that you sent someone to capture my family last night! You injured many of Tiger’s men. How are you going to pay for this?”
