Gregory and his men faltered when they heard this. Even Jasper was frowning in bewilderment.
“But our men saw you walk into Times Hotel!” Gregory argued.
Matthew looked unfazed, “And your men know exactly what I look like, do they? Can they recognize me from a dozen feet away? How are they so sure that they got the right guy?”
Gregory froze, then he glowered at Matthew mutinously as he hissed, “Y-You got someone to disguise themselves as you!”
“Not just me. I also found body doubles for Mr. Arnold and Tyson. I had to make you all believe that I’d gone to Times Hotel, otherwise I’d never be able to lure you out…”
Gregory was ashen-faced as he demanded hotly, “But how could you have possibly known that we were following you?”
“I didn’t,” Matthew answered breezily. “I only made a lucky guess. This whole thing was a trap to begin with. If you truly had me followed, then it could only mean you’d fallen into the trap. My plan obviously worked out, seeing as you’re all here.”
Gregory gritted his teeth as he pondered Matthew’s words. He had been so sure that everything was in the palm of his hand.
All he needed to do was capture Sasha and Matthew’s sister and force him to give up all of the Larson Family’s secrets. Now, he realized how wrong he had been, Matthew was the one in control all along, not him.
He thought he had outsmarted Matthew, but he had been walking right into the trap Matthew had set out for him all this while. He felt so humiliated that he wanted to bury himself alive.
On the other hand, Matthew ignored Gregory and merely gave Macon a bemused look. “This trap was initially set up to lure you out of hiding, but I guess I caught some other fish along the way. You really shouldn’t have brought me such gifts, Macon.”
Macon clenched his jaw and said nothing.
At that moment, Jasper, standing at the side, interjected, “I must admit, I’m quite surprised by this turn of events. I guess I’ve underestimated you, Matthew. You’re more brilliant than I expected. But what does that matter? Even if you’d seen this coming, you’re still hopelessly outnumbered.”
Matthew’s brow furrowed. “Who might you be?”
Then, Gregory hurried over to Jasper’s side and proudly made the introductions.
A grim look passed over Matthew’s face when he heard the details.
Macon’s fear of Jasper could only mean the latter was not one to be taken lightly.
Matthew had anticipated everything, including Gregory’s schemes and Lord Voodoo’s antics. Still, he left out the possibility of the Damron Family getting involved In this dispute.
He had considered how the fight would end If they were to go head-to-head with each other. Tyson could easily take care of Macon. As for Gregory and Lord Voodoo, Matthew and Ambrose could tackle them without issue. However, with Jasper on their side, Macon and Gregory gained an advantage, and Matthew was obviously on the losing end. If a fight were to break out, he could very well lose.
A moment later, Matthew ordered over his shoulder, “Tiger, get Sasha and the others out of here.”
He had already determined that the odds were against him in this fight, so he had to get Sasha and the rest to safety.
However, Jasper guffawed when he heard this and said, “It’s too late for any of you to escape! Kill everyone except Sasha?”
He leaped and lunged at Sasha as he said this.
Meanwhile, Ambrose, standing protectively next to Sasha, immediately rushed forward with his palms out to stop Jasper’s advances.
