The Formidable Son-In-Law: The Charismatic Lucas Gray - Chapter 315
Chapter 315: Forced With The Rod
Liam mocked Lucas smugly, “Lucas Gray, don’t think you’re an important person. Kyle is from a prestigious family, and he can easily crush you if he wants! You’d better obey, pay up, and leave. Otherwise, you won’t be able to leave even if you want to!”
Now, not only had Liam gotten rid of the terrifying debt of thirty million dollars with Kyle’s help, thus saving him from the foolish mistake he had made. Furthermore, he was extremely pleased and smug because he felt that he had built a friendship with Kyle. So he spoke with a huge sense of superiority.
Lucas said indifferently, “What if I just don’t want to?”
Their threats meant nothing to him.
If Lucas hadn’t thought that those beauties the Kingstons had put up for the auction were most likely related to the origin of those beauties of the Ocean Bathhouse, and he wanted to get to the bottom of the truth, he could have just destroyed the auction hall before going to destroy the Kingstons.
Anyway, the Kingstons were the dogs of the Huttons, and they had repeatedly harassed Lucas, which was already extremely annoying.
Destroying the Kingstons was easy, but Lucas still wanted to get more insider news from them, so he hadn’t done anything to them.
Seeing that both Liam and Kyle were angered by what Lucas said and sensing that things were about to go awry, Russell hurriedly stood out and yelled loudly, “Ladies and gentleman, the auction tonight has come to an end. Thank you for attending. Please leave the venue now!”
Russell signaled the surrounding staff members to escort the guests away.
In fact, the matter regarding the last auction item had yet to be settled, so they were all very curious about how it was going to be handled. But the fact that the Kingstons were asking them to leave now showed that they clearly wanted to settle it in private instead of letting everyone find out, probably because of the pride of the Kingstons.
At the thought of this, everyone could only leave reluctantly in order not to offend the Kingstons.
The large auction hall was soon empty again.
But Lena and Bruce, who chose to stay in place, stood out very starkly.
Russell frowned in displeasure. “Why aren’t you two leaving yet?”
Bruce also frowned. “Mr. Gray is my friend, so I naturally won’t let him stay here alone. Although I don’t know what exactly you want to do to him, what Mr. Kingston did just now was clearly inappropriate, wasn’t it?”
Lena nodded and expressed her support for Lucas. “Exactly, Liam Wallace clearly tried to go against Lucas by deliberately placing high bids that are way more than what he can afford. In the end, Liam Wallace ended up making a fool out of himself because he couldn’t afford to pay what he bid. Why should Lucas be the one to bear the consequences? It’s not the first time the Kingstons are holding an auction. Why would you do something like that?”
Kyle rolled his eyes in displeasure. “What does it have to do with you? The auction is organized by my family, and we’ll handle it the way I want to. You’re in no place to intervene.”
Russell also said sternly, “This is a matter between us Kingstons and Mr. Lucas Gray. I hope you won’t interfere indiscriminately, lest you get into trouble yourselves!”
Although Russell didn’t approve of Kyle’s actions, he was still working for the Kingstons, so no matter what, he couldn’t reprimand Kyle in front of outsiders.
Russell was obviously threatening them with the future of the Sawyers and the Hales and warning them not to poke their noses into others’ business.
As he expected, Lena’s face immediately became extremely sullen.
If she was alone, she would naturally go all out and continue to support Lucas without any reservations. But if the future of the Sawyers was at stake, Lena wouldn’t dare to act so presumptuously and recklessly.
After all, the last time her father, Ethan, had a talk with her, he had mentioned that the Sawyers were now only glorious on the surface and that they were actually facing many large and small crises at this point. A slight careless mistake could lead to heavy losses, which was also why her father wanted her to marry Tristan and let their families unite.
Thus, she indeed couldn’t act willfully at this juncture and cause the Sawyers to suffer severe and immeasurable losses.
Lena bit her lower lip reluctantly and stopped talking.
But Bruce shook his head, straightened his back, and said austerely, “Even if you are displeased and decide to harm the Hales, I will face all your attacks!”
He had long seen Lucas’s methods of handling things, and now that the Hales had already pledged allegiance to him, they were naturally on his side.
But Bruce also believed that as long as Lucas was around, even the Kingstons wouldn’t be able to get any advantages.
Bruce’s insistence on supporting Lucas even at the expense of getting his family harmed caught Liam and Russell by surprise. Even Lena’s eyes were full of confusion.
Liam narrowed his eyes and threatened with a gloomy expression, “Hmph, since you’re bent on protecting Lucas Gray, don’t blame us for being unkind to the Hales when the time comes!”
Bruce glanced coldly at Liam, whose family was also one of the four top families just like the Hales. After calling Liam a good-for-nothing in his head, Bruce couldn’t be bothered to pay any more attention to him.
After seeing Bruce’s behavior, Russell could tell even more that Lucas was extraordinary. He’s a young man who has the full support of the most respected family head among the top four families of Orange County. And he’s also the holder of a Black Diamond Card that’s extremely rare and precious in the world… How much more is there to him than meets the eye?
No matter what, Russell was reluctant to become enemies with Lucas.
“Mr. Kingston, since Mr. Wallace can’t afford to pay what he has bid, while Mr. Gray is not willing to buy Beauty No. 10 at the last bidded price, why don’t we just nullify this auction? Neither of you will have to pay, and Beauty No. 10 will be kept by the Kingstons. What do you think?” Russell suggested, wanting to let the matter rest.
Unfortunately, Lucas’s purpose in coming to the auction was to rescue Grace and take her away. So how could he possibly leave Grace with the Kingstons, who were just as disgusting as the Wallaces?
Kyle was also against the proposal because, in his opinion, it was too easy of a way out for Lucas and also an insult to him. “Hmph, how can an auction held by the Kingstons be nullified just like that?!”
Kyle chuckled coldly and suddenly said arrogantly while a raised voice, “Since I said that you have to pay for it, you have to obey! I initially wanted to do you a favor and let you pay only six million dollars. But now that you’ve angered me, I’ve decided that you must pay the full sum of thirty million dollars and not a single cent less! Otherwise, you will stay in this auction house forever!”
With a sinister smile, he waved his hand, and more than ten fighters dressed in black bodysuits appeared around them. They were all holding various weapons like knives, guns, batons, and so on as they began surrounding Lucas aggressively!
“Hahaha, Lucas Gray, I’ll give you two minutes to make your payment obediently! Otherwise, I can’t guarantee that you can still walk out of this hall in one piece!”
