Crystal quickly looked toward the commotion.
The crowd was rowdy as a car drove into the hotel’s entrance. There were too many people gathered at the entrance, so they ended up blocking the car’s path. Crystal recognized the car. it belonged to Matthew.
Everyone started making a ruckus again, and most of them were jeering.
Some of them immediately stood in the car’s way and wagged their fingers at Matthew as they roared, “Get your butt out here, Larson! Who do you think you are that you have the right to drive into Times Hotel? Why don’t you stop putting on your stinking airs at a time like this? Do you still think you’re the Lord of Eastshire, huh?”
The crowd broke out into raucous laughter as they started mocking Matthew.
Crystal was fuming. “W-Why are they ganging up on him like that? Matthew has done nothing to them. Why are they trying to kick a man when he’s down?”
Joseph sighed. “That is the nature of people. They fear the strong and bully the weak. The Damrons are upstairs watching right now. They’re just trying to make a good impression so the Damrons would think favorably of them. What they don’t know is that to the Damrons, they’re nothing but a bunch of clowns. Why would the Damrons waste any time on them?”
Thanks to that young man’s shouts, many people came over to crowd around the car and screamed for Matthew to get down.
They acted as if they owned the Times Hotel.
Although the rest of the crowd kept quiet, most of them were here to have a laugh. They wanted to see what Matthew could do in this situation.
Meanwhile, on the top floor of the Times Hotel, a few men gathered by the window to watch what was occurring outside.
These were members of the Damron Family, and they were all sneering at the sight.
One of them started gloating, “I told you so. As long as we appear in Eastcliff, we don’t even need to get our hands dirty. Once all these f*ckers hear our name, they’ll help us sort Larson out at once! Look. He can’t even enter the Times Hotel right now. The Lord of Eastshire, huh? Hah! What a joke!”
The others began to laugh and jeer as well with smug looks on their faces.
Meanwhile, Matthew was sitting in the car with Tiger acting as his driver. He had intended to come over to the hotel by himself.
He wanted Tiger to leave Eastcliff first. However, Tiger refused to go. He insisted on staying with Matthew, and Matthew was touched.
Tiger seethed with rage at the sight of the jeering crowd outside the car.
“F*cking hell! These b*stards have gone too far! Do they think they can lord over us just because they’re doing it in the name of the Damron Family? Just wait, Matthew. I’ll call some guys over to get rid of them!”
Matthew was resting in the back seat with his eyes half-closed.
When he heard what Tiger said, he replied, “Why bother calling anyone? Just run them over.”
Tiger was startled, but his eyes brightened at once. “You’re right! Why didn’t I think of that? F*ck them! These b*stards asked for it!”
He smashed his foot against the accelerator right away. The car rumbled like a sleeping dragon that had been awakened as it charged into the crowd.
Over a dozen people had been standing in front of the car as they roared at the top of their lungs for Matthew to get out of the car.
When they saw the car was hurtling straight at them, they suddenly realized things weren’t turning out the way they had expected them to. They immediately tried to escape, but it was too late.
Tiger rammed the car straight into the first few people and knocked them to the ground. Even then, he didn’t slow down. He dragged those people, who had been mocking the loudest, under the wheels as he continued rushing forward.
The remaining men who were further behind saw what was happening and started screaming for their lives as they fled. However, Tiger didn’t care anymore. He drove at top speed and charged into the crowd again.
The ground was littered with people who had been knocked down, and they were all howling in agony.
