In the end. Old Master Lewis had no choice but to severely punish Aaron and dish out a large sum of compensation as payback to Matthew. After everything had been settled, Matthew left with Billy.
The Lewis Family’s courtyard was in chaos as the Ten Greatest Families remained present.
The head of the White Family’s face was full of fury, and he slammed the table forcefully. “He’s too arrogant! He doesn‘t have an ounce for the Ten Greatest Families at all!”
The other heads of families nodded along in agreement. The events of the day did put a bad taste in their mouths.
Robert waved his hand dismissively. “He’s just a nobody, so why should you care? Anyway, the Lewis Family is still the most important issue at the moment. Old Master Lewis, we’re also deeply saddened that such a tragedy happened to the Lewis Family, but I hope you can still elect a new head as soon as possible. Matthew is closing in on us, and it seems like he is aiming for everyone in the Ten Greatest Families, so we can‘t just sit still. Electing a new head of the family as soon as possible is our priority!”
Hearing Robert’s reasoning, the other families couldn’t help but feel surprised.
Although the Ten Greatest Families were an alliance, it wasn’t any of their business to elect the head of another family, as it wasn’t their household affairs. Therefore, it was unprecedented for Robert to put his two cents into the Lewis Family’s affairs.
What on earth was he planning?
As Old Master Lewis’ injuries were not light, he was on the verge of fainting. Just when he had planned to go back and rest, Robert chose this time to bring up the matter of electing a new head of the Lewis Family. He glanced at Robert, who quietly met his gaze with a smile on his face.
Really? Now, of all times?
Old Master Lewis knew Robert wanted to intervene in the Lewis Family’s selection of a new head. Each person had their own motives, and Robert was definitely not doing this for the good of the Lewis Family. He only had one purpose for being so involved in their affairs, to help his favorite candidate ascend the throne. Once he succeeded, this person would be grateful to him and repay his kindness.
To put it bluntly, Robert only wanted to seize this opportunity to benefit from the Lewis Family.
Struggling to take a breath, Old Master Lewis mumbled, “About that… E-Everyone in the Lewis Family has to get together and discuss it in the long run.”
With a chuckle, Robert replied, “That’s what you might think, but a huge scene was caused this time. When Matthew left, he said that he wanted the Lewis Family to solve the matter immediately. Even if you don’t choose a new head now, you have to find at least one acting leader to solve these matters. This is the promise that the Ten Greatest Families made to Matthew. If we can’t do it, wouldn’t it be a disgrace to the Ten Greatest Families?“
By now, the other families had already guessed Robert’s intentions, and they each spoke out to express their agreement. The Ten Greatest Families each harbored sinister intention. Though they acted like an alliance on the surface, the truth was that they all wanted to weaken the power of the other families in order to gain more profits.
Old Master Lewis was boiling with anger. The betrayal of the other nine families was absolutely loathsome!
He inhaled a deep breath before declaring, “Thank you all for your kind reminder. Since everything happened so suddenly, we had no time to discuss this matter, so in accordance with the practice of the Ten Greatest Families, the eldest son will succeed the throne. Aaron, your father was the previous head. As his eldest son, you will be the acting head of the family!”
Hearing that, Aaron couldn’t help but feel overjoyed. Needless to say, he wanted to be the head of the family as well.
However, Robert waved his hand as a form of disagreement. “Old Master Lewis, I don’t think Aaron is a suitable candidate. The incident last night had gone too far. Although it happened for a reason, as the head of the family, one must be Imposing and commanding, not a reckless man who can only flaunt their superiority! If such a person becomes the head, they will not only drag down the Lewis Family but also the Ten Greatest Families. won’t they?”
