The man’s face was red. He nearly foamed at the mouth in rage. It was abject humiliation to be slapped in front of all these people!
Even so, Brittany showed no sign of stopping, and this drove him further up the wall.
All Aurelius did was warn him to not react in anger.
Still, how was it possible for someone to not get mad at a time like this?
When the man realized that Brittany wasn’t about to stop anytime soon, he couldn’t take it anymore. He balled his fists and his eyes flashed coldly as he prepared to retaliate.
At the same time, Aurelius made his move. He punched the man in the chest so hard that he broke several of the man’s bones.
The man crumpled to the ground and coughed up a mouthful of blood. He couldn’t even get up from the ground.
Aurelius didn’t spare him a glance. He turned to Brittany and bowed. “He offended you earlier, Miss Newman, and it’s our fault for not educating him. Don’t worry, Miss Newman. I will ensure that he learns his lesson when we get home!”
Brittany withdrew her hand in a huff. She wanted to rile him up so that a fight would start, and she was on the verge of succeeding when Aurelius put a stop to everything.
Now that the man was lying on the ground, she couldn’t continue hitting him anymore. She didn’t have any excuse to stick around anymore, so she could only leave in discontent.
However, before leaving, she left a few of her men behind, both for the sake of protecting Matthew and keeping an eye on things here.
Times Hotel was her territory. If the Damrons attacked Matthew here, she would have the chance to step in and stop them. This was the only thing she could do for Matthew now.
After seeing Brittany off, the Damrons finally exhaled in relief.
She had only been here for a short while, but they were almost raving mad because of her.
A piercing look flashed in Aurelius’ eyes. He glanced at the people that Brittany left behind and gritted his teeth. Naturally, he knew what Brittany was up to, so he had to be on guard as well.
Aurelius eyed Matthew. Words could not begin to describe how much he hated them right now. “Shall we head upstairs to talk, Dr. Larson?”
Matthew didn’t waste any more time and followed Aurelius upstairs.
There were still a lot of people hanging around downstairs. All of a sudden, there was a loud commotion. A group of men in black came over, they turned out to be the men Brittany had brought over.
They started chasing off all the people that were present.
Brittany was furious that these people had mocked Matthew, so she wasn‘t going to let them remain on the hotel grounds.
Meanwhile, the crowd had just witnessed Brittany’s dominance, so none of them had the courage to go against her. Thus, the men in black soon cleared the place.
The Damrons had seen it all from the top floor and while they were furious, no one dared to do anything.
Aurelius sat on the couch and observed Matthew, who was opposite him.
Matthew came up alone, but he didn’t show any sign of fear, which surprised Aurelius.
“No wonder Billy Newman chose you as his successor. You’re not a coward by any means,” Aurelius chuckled.
Matthew’s expression remained neutral. “You’re too kind, Master Damron. Let’s not waste any more time on these pleasantries.”
Aurelius smirked. “You’re a straight-shooter, Dr. Larson. In that case, let’s not beat around the bush then. Dr. Larson, regarding the matter of my brother’s death, how are you going to explain yourself?”
Matthew eyed him and responded coolly, “Master Damron, everyone knows that Macon, Gregory, and Lord Voodoo teamed up to kill Jasper. Why are you asking me for an explanation? Aren’t you asking the wrong person?”
“Do you have evidence to prove that those three people are the ones who killed my brother?”
Matthew frowned and questioned Aurelius right back. “And do you have evidence to prove that I killed your brother?”
