Aurelius had a smile on his face this whole time, but his eyes were filled with a murderous glint.
Brittany was dumbstruck. She never expected the Damrons to threaten her with this.
Those around here were people that Billy had left to her. They had worked for Billy for decades. In other words, these were people whom she had known ever since she was a child, and they showered her with love.
After Billy’s passing, they remained loyal to Brittany. They were like family to her.
Now that Aurelius was using their lives to threaten her, she didn’t know what to do.
Matthew came over and murmured, “Go home, Brittany. I can handle this. Don’t worry. I’ll be fine!”
Brittany’s eyes turned red. She glanced at Matthew before glaring at Aurelius and warning through gritted teeth, “Aurelius, if anything happens to Matthew, l… I won’t let the Damrons get away with it!”
Aurelius smirked. He didn’t care about Brittany’s threat. In his eyes, she was just an immature little girl.
While she did have powerful people behind her, it only meant that no one would dare to offend her. As long as he didn’t do anything to her, she couldn’t do anything to him either.
Gabriel and Gianna wouldn’t stand against the Damrons over someone like Matthew who had nothing to do with them!
Brittany looked at Matthew and muttered, “Matthew, if anything happens, look for me at my place!”
Matthew smiled. He could tell that Brittany was giving him a way out of this. However, he didn’t plan on using it.
No matter what happened, he refused to let Brittany get dragged into this!
Brittany was about to leave when she recalled something. She walked over to Jasper’s memorial plaque. All of a sudden, she grabbed it and threw it to the ground. It smashed into pieces right away.
Every single Damron present reacted at once. That was Jasper’s memorial plaque!
Even Aurelius had to take a deep breath, but in the end, he didn’t dare to say anything.
Brittany looked around at all the Damrons and snarled, “I don’t want your 15 million! However, this memorial plaque has sullied my establishment, so it must be destroyed! Someone, take it away and set it on fire!”
A few people behind Brittany stepped forward immediately and started collecting the pieces.
The Damrons were boiling with rage. A few of them wanted to stop them, but Aurelius silenced them with a look.
Aurelius smiled faintly. “It was a lapse ofjudgment on our part. It’s only right that we make it up to Miss Newman.”
Although the Damrons were fuming, none of them had the guts to say anything. However, that wasn’t the end of it.
Brittany walked over to the man who had berated her earlier and slapped his face.
“You were dissatisfied earlier, weren’t you?” Brittany asked.
The man had been slapped by Aurelius earlier, so now that he had received another slap from Brittany, he was unsurprisingly on the verge of exploding in anger. Even then, he could only clench his jaw and swallow his anger.
However, Brittany ignored all of this. She slapped him once again.
The Damrons were enraged. Many of them had tightened their fists and were itching to rush forward for a fight.
Aurelius leveled them a warning glare that signified they were not to act on their emotions. He could tell that Brittany was riling them up on purpose so that they would attack her.
If any of the Damrons made a move, it would spell doom for them. Attacking Brittany gave her the perfect excuse to get involved and take things further.
If that happened, Gabriel and Gianna would get involved as well, and the Damrons would be in a lot of trouble!
Seeing that no one made a move, Brittany continued to slap the man over and over again.
“I’m asking you a question! Can’t you hear me? Why aren’t you saying anything? Are you dissatisfied?” Brittany questioned as she slapped him.
