Although the remaining members of the Damron Family were strong, Matthew was stronger than all of them combined.
When Harper was around, they could assist Harper. Therefore, at the time, Matthew was not much of a threat. However, Harper was now gravely injured and no longer had any ability to fight. Thus, the remaining men were no match for Matthew at all.
When Matthew made his grand escape, these people from the Damron Family did not dare to chase after him.
Still, the Damron Family had plenty of men placed around this mountain. So, these people hastily rushed to notify the others of Matthew’s location. In no time, the Damron Family’s men came from all directions and surrounded Matthew.
At this moment, Aurelius arrived at the bottom of the mountain.
Harper had long been carried down the mountain, by now, he looked slightly better.
At the sight of Aurelius, Harper struggled to sit up and grunted in a trembling voice, “A-Aurelius, Matthew is so vicious! That b*stard! He attacked me with such despicable tricks. D-Don’t let him off the hook!”
“W-When you get him, you must send him to me. I-I want to take revenge!”
Aurelius smiled faintly as he reassured the injured man, “Don’t worry!”
“Our men have surrounded the entire mountain. He won’t be able to escape from us even if he can fly!”
“Great!” Harper was overjoyed at the news and roared excitedly.
“That son of a b*tch! I will finish him off today!”
“Calm down, Harper. We have all the time in the world to play with him!”
“Since he likes to play games so much. it’s only fair that we return the favor by playing hide-and-seek with him. Our men have surrounded the whole mountain. Where else can he go? To the sky?”
“So, let’s play with him until he is so exhausted that he can’t even lift a finger. Isn’t that more interesting?”
Everyone around them cheered at Aurelius’ arrangement. However, the expressions on their faces were all full of arrogance and disdain for Matthew, who they viewed as a rat caught in a cheese trap.
Harper also joined in on the fun. “Yes! We’ll show him what will happen if he goes against us!”
“Humph! Does he really think he is so capable? We’re gonna kick his a*s!”
“Billy’s heir? Hah! He’s just a loser and a boy toy!”
“Lord of Eastshire? Sure he is! This time, We will step on the head of the so-called Lord of Eastshire right before the eyes of these prominent families! We will show these so-called great families that they are nothing to us!”
Everyone nodded profusely, and one of them even jeered, “You’re right.”
“Ten Greatest Families, my a*s! We chase the so-called Lord of Eastshire all over the mountains like we’re hunting a rabbit, but these Greatest Families aren’t even doing anything about it. And he has the cheek to call himself Lord of Eastshire! Haha! No one in Eastshire dares to help him. This is so embarrassing. Hahaha!”
The crowd burst into laughter, and their conversation was full of arrogance and smugness.
As they were enjoying themselves, a member of the Damron Family ran over in a disheveled state. The members of the Damron Family had surrounded the mountain and even sent people to guard the mountain’s entrance. They held such a chokehold of the entire mountain that no one could even get close. But now, some random nobody from the outside was barging in!
What was going on?
Harper looked at the man coldly and hissed, “What are you doing here?”
“Didn’t I tell you to guard the entrance and not let anyone in? What are you doing here?”
The man’s face was pale, and he stammered, “M-Mr. Damron, s-something happened…”
Harper glared at him fiercely. “We’re all here. What happened?”
The man trembled in fright as he forced the words out of his throat, “T-There are many people swarming us outside, and they’re demanding us to release Matthew immediately…”
