Matthew nodded. “I’m really fine, Dad.”
Reassured by Matthew’s words, James stared at him for a while. Then, he finally nodded. “I believe you, Matthew!“
“It’s fine now, Sasha. Don’t cry… Matthew has returned. isn’t that great? Come here quickly. Let’s head Inside.”
Upon seeing this, Demi immediately panicked. “Dad… W-Why did you let him in? It’s as clear as day that he escaped! If people from the Ten Greatest Families of Eastcliff come looking for him, what should we do? Do you want our family to get into trouble too because of him?”
Hearing that, James glared at Demi angrily, “If you are that fearful, you know where the door is!”
At once, Demi’s facial complexion changed after she was yelled at by James. ‘Dad’s siding with Matthew?! In an instant,
Demi had lost someone whom she could count on!’
Looking at Helen, Demi tried asking for help. However, Helen merely waved her off. “Demi, can you stop looking for trouble?”
Regardless of Demi’s plea, this matter occurred because of Helen’s sister, Heidi. Furthermore, Matthew had rescued Helen when she was taken away prior to this. Thus, deep down, Helen was more grateful to Matthew.
Hence. Demi was at her wit’s end, even her own mom and dad refused to help her. What else could she do?
Standing by the door, Demi watched as Matthew entered the house. At that moment, she was feeling extremely embarrassed as she didn’t know whether to leave or stay.
All of a sudden, a group of people barged into the courtyard.
“Excuse me, miss. l‘m looking for Matthew Larson. Does he live here?” questioned the man who appeared to be the head of the group.
Instead of answering him, Demi merely glanced at the group of people. “Who are you?”
Then, the man smiled and replied, “Oh, allow me to introduce myself. I’m from the Lewis Family. The name’s Freddy Lewis…”
Upon hearing that, Demi immediately jumped with joy.
“Mom! Dad! The members of the Lewis Family are here, and they’re looking for Matthew! Just as I’ve said! He must have escaped. The three of you wouldn’t listen to me when I told you to not let him enter the house. I shall see what’s your next move now that trouble has come to our doorstep!”
Immediately, there was a change in both James’ and Helen’s facial expressions. ‘Is this really the case?’
Yet, no sign of anxiety could be seen on Matthew’s face. In fact, he was rather calm. “Let them in!“
Hearing that, Demi laughed. ”Oh. Matthew. Of course I’ll let them In! They’re from the Ten Greatest Families of Eastcliff. What’s the matter? Are you afraid to let them in? However, I advise you to surrender. Oh, and please don’t break any furniture In this house. They‘re still In good condition. I don’t wish to splurge extra money on buying new furniture once Liam and I move in here in the future.”
Agreeing with Demi, Liam smiled and nodded. As long as Matthew was no longer alive, they would be able to move in and live here for good. Besides. they could annex all the properties belonging to the Cunningham Family in the future.
At once, Freddy and the rest of the group walked in after hearing Matthew’s words.
Frightened, James’ and Helen’s faces were as white as sheets. Their bodies were even trembling like a leaflet. Meanwhile, Liam and Demi grinned from ear to ear, revealing complacent smiles.
At that instant, Freddy said in a respectful manner, “I‘m sorry for disturbing you, Mr. Larson. As mentioned by the Lewis Family before, we will give you 300 million worth of compensation regarding the incident that took place this time! A moment ago, we had already transferred the money into this card on behalf of the substitute head of the Lewis Family, Felix. I came all the way over here to pass you this card, and I would also wish to apologize to you personally. Normally, this matter should be carried out by the head of the Lewis Family. However, something came up, and I’m afraid his current urgency is elsewhere. Therefore, he
couldn’t come over in person. Please pardon us of any offense made toward you personally, Mr. Larson.”
Having said that, Freddy held the bank card in both hands and handed it to Matthew humbly.
The sight of this stunned everyone in the house.
James and Helen, who were still sweating a bucket, remained frozen in their spots. For almost a minute, they couldn’t even begin to react.
‘What’s happening here? The members of the Lewis Family aren’t here to look for trouble. instead they’re here to apologize and to compensate? So what Matthew had said was true after all. He’s really fine? Not only is he in one piece, but the Lewis Family also gave him 300 million worth of compensation. That’s such a large sum of money.’
As for Demi and Liam, they felt as if their eyeballs were about to pop out.
‘What on earth is going on?’
