The Formidable Son-In-Law: The Charismatic Lucas Gray - Chapter 412
Chapter 412: Have A Reliance
After hearing the insults Nikki hurled at Cheyenne, Kenneth frowned without saying anything.
In fact, he felt that Nikki wasn’t wrong either.
He was the scion of the Parker family and could have any woman he wanted. The fact that he was willing to stoop low and take a fancy to a married woman like Cheyenne was indeed her honor!
Besides, he merely intended to toy with Cheyenne and didn’t really love her, so he wasn’t bothered by Nikki’s scoldings.
In his opinion, Cheyenne was indeed rather ignorant and arrogant, for she had repeatedly snapped at him today. Does she still think that she’s some noble and untouchable gem?
Kenneth and Nikki initially planned to use the dinner as a ruse to chase Lucas away. If it didn’t work, Nikki would then toast Lucas with a glass of drugged wine that would ensure he would lose consciousness soon after drinking it. Once he got his hands on Cheyenne, it would be up to him to do whatever he wanted.
Unfortunately, Lucas seemed to have realized that there was something wrong with the wine and refused to drink it no matter how Nikki had tried to persuade him. As a result, their plan was foiled.
And now, both Cheyenne and Lucas were leaving after ruining Kenneth’s mood. How could he allow them to leave unscathed after they failed to please him?
So they fell out with each other and got into an altercation.
Any in case, in the opinion of Kenneth and the others, Lucas definitely wouldn’t be able to escape, especially since the bodyguards they called were arriving soon. When the time came, Lucas wouldn’t be able to escape!
Everyone looked at Lucas like he was a fish in a barrel and could already see the scene of Lucas kneeling pitifully at their feet and begging them for forgiveness. Their faces were full of smug expressions.
Lucas’s gaze was icy cold as he glared daggers at Nikki. How dare this woman insult and lash out at Cheyenne? I won’t let her off!
Perhaps because of the terrifying gaze in Lucas’s eyes, Nikki subconsciously shuddered as fear arose in her heart.
But once she thought of Kenneth and his friends, Nikki felt brave again. She mustered her courage and hollered at Lucas, “How dare you yell at me? Hmph, watch how I make you kneel down in front of Kenneth and beg him for mercy later! Don’t worry. I will never plead for you!”
Lucas glanced at her coldly before shifting his gaze onto Kenneth. “Are you planning to make the two of us stay here?”
Kenneth pretended to be a gentleman and waved his hands while saying derisively, “Nikki said that, not me. But since she was the one who specially invited you two to dinner today, she calls the shots!”
In any case, Nikki was already speaking up for him, so he was naturally willing to sit back and watch the good show.
“Don’t regret your decision then.” Lucas sneered.
The reason he agreed to Cheyenne’s suggestion to leave wasn’t that he was afraid of this bunch of good-for-nothing wealthy scions.
“Hmph, I bet you won’t be afraid until you realize you’re in deep trouble!” With a cold and menacing gaze, Kenneth suddenly exclaimed into his phone, “Come in!”
The door of the private room immediately opened from the outside, and two tall bodyguards more than 1.9 meters tall walked in with an oppressive aura. They looked around and bowed to Kenneth respectfully before standing behind him and glowering at Lucas hostilely.
Kenneth now felt extremely comfortable and pleased. He placed his legs on the dining table languidly and nonchalantly and said smugly and gloatingly, “Punk, who did you tell not to regret their decision? I didn’t hear you clearly. Repeat yourself!”
After seeing Kenneth’s powerful bodyguards entering, the scions immediately felt they had great support.
Lucas Gray merely managed to crush a cup with his bare hand. Kenneth’s bodyguards can do the same!
Let’s see how he can continue being arrogant!
“Haha, kid, you don’t even dare to say a single word now. Are you frightened out of your wits? I told you long ago that a freeloading pauper like you will never be able to imagine how powerful Kenneth really is! Weren’t you very haughty and tyrannical in front of us just now? Continue acting that way!”
“Hahahaha, he’s probably scared silly! If you kneel down now and apologize to Kenneth, he might be in a good mood and let you off!”
“That’s right! While Kenneth and we are still in a good mood, hurry up and get down on your knees to apologize! If you learn to bark a few times on the ground, we will consider sparing you!”
“Hahaha, I think learning how to bark alone isn’t enough. We should at least make this scoundrel learn how to crawl on the ground like a dog!”
Everyone laughed out loud in derision, and their remarks were getting increasingly vulgar as they kept degrading Lucas.
Lucas’s expression remained unchanged, and he didn’t even move his brow at all, much less waver because of the sudden appearance of two tall bodyguards.
But Cheyenne was extremely worried. She was clenching her fists so tightly that her nails were digging into the flesh of her palm.
As Kenneth was someone of high status, his bodyguards were naturally not ordinary elites and were definitely extremely skilled.
Although she had seen Lucas fight a few times before, the people she had seen him in a scuffle with were those with ordinary fighting skills like Bryce, security guards, and so on.
So after seeing these two tall and muscular bodyguards clad in black suits and wearing sunglasses who seemed to be terrifying figures, Cheyenne immediately became worried.
She was afraid that something untoward might happen to Lucas!
Moreover, the two of them were already being forced to stay in the room, and if something happened to Lucas, she definitely wouldn’t be able to escape. Eventually, she would end up in Kenneth’s hands and get violated by him just like Nikki had said!
At this moment, Cheyenne’s heart was full of regret.
Had she known earlier that Nikki was such a selfish and vile person with no regard for kinship and only wanted to sell Cheyenne out in exchange for favors, she would never have brought Lucas to this dinner!
Unfortunately, there was no way she could have found out prior, so even if she regretted it now, it was already too late.
“Lucas Gray, have you finally figured it out, you good-for-nothing? I’ve long said that you aren’t worthy of my cousin Cheyenne. If you get on your knees now and obediently let Kenneth have Cheyenne, I can ask him to let you off,” Nikki said smugly.
Cheyenne flew into a rage and shouted, “Nikki Heron, shut up! Stop calling me your cousin! I don’t have an inhumane cousin like you!”
“Hmph, fine, so be it. Cheyenne Carter, do you think I like calling you my cousin? A shameless bitch like you who has disgraced our family doesn’t deserve my attention at all. If not because you’re now the general manager of the Brilliance Corporation and the woman Kenneth has taken a fancy to, I wouldn’t bother with you!
“I’m telling you, don’t put on airs and throw your weight around in front of me just because you’re my cousin. You’re not qualified to reprimand me! If you speak to me so rudely again, I’ll tell Kenneth to break the legs of your good-for-nothing husband! Do you hear me?”
