“You’re quite the arrogant punk, aren’t you, Larson? Fine. Since you’re the one who chose the hard way, I’ll grant your wish!” Harper roared.
He waved his hand and barked, “Break both his f*cking legs, and knock all his teeth out while you’re at it! Let’s see if he can still run his mouth with all his teeth gone!”
The Damrons immediately rushed forward as the onlooking crowd cheered in support as if they were all on the Damrons’ side.
Matthew clenched his fists. He was determined to duke it out with the Damrons right there and then.
Just as the fight was about to start, there was a loud ruckus outside as if something major had happened.
Harper frowned. He stood up and roared, “Who’s the b*stard that has a death wish? Who dares to cause a commotion here? Doesn’t he know the Damrons of Bainbridge have booked the entire Times Hotel?”
The crowd quickly voiced their outrage. Some even began to shout right along with Harper. “Who’s the dumb fool causing a spectacle in front of the Damrons? Are they trying to get themselves killed?”
“Get out of the way, everyone. Let’s see who the dumb fool is.”
“Mr. Damron, you don’t need to do anything. We’ll sort whoever it is out for you!”
“That’s right. You and your friends needn’t bother to dirty your hands over a tiny rat like this. We can handle it.”
One by one, these people stepped out of the crowd and began to shout as if they were part of the Damron Family.
Harper had a smug smile on his face. This was exactly what he wanted to see. He loved hearing others grovel at his feet.
Over a dozen young men from Eastcliff’s wealthy families stepped out of the crowd and shouted at the top of their lungs as they walked over to the commotion. They wanted to seize this chance to make a good impression on the Damrons.
Just as these young men marched over with their chests puffed out, the crowd began to disperse as well, or rather, it would be more precise to say that the mass of people got cleared out by force.
Several dozens of men in black suits forced their way through the crowd and carved out a path by splitting the crowd in half. Behind them, over a dozen luxury cars began driving in.
The dozen or so wealthy young men were stupefied by what they saw. They initially assumed that it was no big deal, and none of them expected to encounter this instead. However, recalling that they were acting on behalf of the Damrons, the young men didn’t feel frightened at all.
The leader of the pack stood right in the middle to block the road and began to wag his finger at the car. “Stop the car.
Stop the car! Go off to the side and pull over!”
However, the driver ignored him and continued driving straight at him.
The young man began to panic as he roared once more, “I told you to stop! Didn’t you hear me? I’m telling you right now. This is an order from Mr. Harper Damron of Bainbridge! If you don‘t stop the car, you’ll have to bear the consequences!”
Even so, the car didn’t stop. In fact, the car in the lead began to speed up and rush straight at him.
The young man couldn’t react in time, and he ended up flying several feet away when the car banged into him.
Yet again, the crowd broke out in an uproar. No one expected this to happen when these wealthy young men acted in the Damron Family’s name.
By ramming into that young man with the car, didn’t it mean that whoever was behind this was going against the Damrons?
Sure enough, Harper’s face contorted with fury.
He slammed the table and snarled, “Which fool has the gall to disrespect the Damrons from Bainbridge? Stop the car and drag them out! Let me see who has the balls to go against us!”
Several of the Damrons rushed forward to stop the procession of cars. At the same time, the car in the lead came to a halt.
The door opened, and a man wearing a black suit and white gloves stepped out.
He opened the door to the back seat and bowed respectfully, “We’re here, miss!”
A beautiful woman made her way out of the car, and it turned out to be Billy Newman’s daughter, Brittany Newman!
