Calmly. Matthew took over the bank card and handed it to Sasha, who was standing beside him.
“I must say… I didn’t expect the Lewis Family to do things so promptly. Seeing as you all had come to apologize personally, I’ll let this matter slide. Alright, you all may go back now!”
Freddy was overjoyed at Matthew’s words. Once again, he said, in a respectful manner. ”Thank you, Mr. Larson! Thank you. Well then, I shall bid my farewell first. Sorry for disturbing you.”
With that, Freddy, alongside the rest of the members of the Lewis Family, left The Grand Garden.
Meanwhile, the atmosphere inside the house was as silent as the dead. Apart from Matthew. the rest of the Cunningham Family were too shocked to utter a word.
After a long while, James finally regained his senses. “Matthew, is… Is the matter truly solved?”
Understanding James’ worry, Matthew smiled and said, “Dad, of course it’s true! Look, the members of the Lewis Family even came over here to apologize.“
Overwhelmed with joy, James patted Matthew’s shoulder frantically. ”Good job, Matthew! As expected, you didn’t disappoint me! I… I told them you‘d be fine! This is really wonderful! Everyone. come… Helen, go open a bottle of wine! Let’s celebrate!”
Just like James, Helen was also delighted. And thus, she ran over to the alcohol cabinet and grabbed a bottle of wine. Deep down, Matthew was quite relieved after seeing James’ and Helen‘s reactions.
‘James and Helen had always been prejudiced against me in the past. I guess… After encountering so many incidents, their attitudes toward me finally changed.’
“Sasha. deposit 30 million out of these 300 million into Master Tiger’s account. He and his men had helped us a lot last night. So, I’m sure many of his men must have sustained injuries after the commotion with the Lewis Family last night. The least that we can do for them is to defray the cost of their medical expenses,” Matthew said.
Agreeing with Matthew, Sasha immediately nodded. “Sure thing!”
Displeased, Demi hurriedly approached Matthew and Sasha.
“It’s just medical expenses! Is it necessary for you to give them such a large sum of money!? We’re not talking about 3,000 nor 30 thousand here. It’s freaking 30 million! Matthew, just exactly how many of them were Injured? I speculate, at most, a dozen or so were injured last night. So, are you saying each of them gets a few million? How can you simply spend the money like that?”
Besides Demi, James and Helen were also reluctant to part with the money. After all, 30 million was not exactly a penny or two.
Upon hearing that. Sasha frowned. ”What would you know? Do you even know the number of people the Lewis Family sent over last night? If I was to describe it, it was like an earnest battle! The cost of the medical expenses didn’t matter much. What matters is that Master Tiger and his men fought hard for us. We can‘t disappoint them, can we? Besides, Master Tiger dispatched at least a few hundred men over to help us out last night. Do you think these men would carry out the work without hoping for some sort of bounty in return? What‘s more, if it weren’t for these men, I couldn’t imagine the tragedy which would fall upon us last night. So, I don‘t see any wrong in giving them some money.”
Hearing that, James acknowledged the truth in Sasha’s words.
Constantly nodding his head, James added, “Sasha’s right! Your mother almost died when she was taken away last night. In other words, these 300 million can also be considered as their contributions for lending us a hand last night. So, giving them 30 million is the least we can do!”
Seeing that James agreed with Sasha, Demi felt all the more anxious. “B-But… It’s 30 million that we’re talking about! Is it necessary to give such a large sum of money?”
Again, Sasha glared at Demi. ”Oh, why do you care? The Lewis Family paid this money to Matthew. not to you. So, you have no say in this matter. Besides, did you not express your intention to leave earlier? You can leave now! No one’s asking you to stay.”
At once, Demi’s face turned red with anger. Seeing James and Helen ignoring her, she turned around and said, ”Forget it! I’m too tired to continue arguing on this matter with all of you! I’m going to hit the hay for the night. All of you are down to your own fate.”
‘Tch… ‘Donating’ such a large sum of money as if it’s mere pieces of coins. What a prodigal!’ Demi grumbled to herself while heading to the bedroom.
Trailing behind her, Liam quietly sneaked into the bedroom. Then, he quickly closed the door behind him, hiding both him and Demi away from the outside.
Sasha’s face was livid with anger at the sight of this. ‘Demi and Liam are truly shameless. Do they have no sense of honor? Why are they still residing here? Don’t tell me they’re planning to stay here with no intention of ever leaving!’
