The Formidable Son-In-Law: The Charismatic Lucas Gray - Chapter 456
Chapter 456: Murderer
If not for the fact that the Turners were considered his relatives, Lucas wouldn’t have bothered to lower himself and attend this wedding, where he was subjected to the gossipy and snide comments of the people here. But Alex made Lucas out to be such a terrible and shameless man, as if Lucas had insisted on attending Dylan’s wedding!
This wasn’t the case at all!
Cheyenne stood up and was about to say something when Eddie, next to Alex, interjected, “Alex is right. If we had known this would happen, we would have just kicked you out and prevented you from embarrassing the Turners here! Karen, look at this good-for-nothing son-in-law you picked. Apart from constantly causing trouble for us, what else can he do? A loser like him should have been kicked out of your family a long time ago!”
Eddie had resentment written all over his face.
He had learned from Robert and Sam yesterday afternoon that the box of tea leaves Lucas had given to him wasn’t any inferior tea but a top-grade tea that could be auctioned for millions. He was incredibly chagrined, so he had silently made up his mind that he had to try to ease the tension and strain in his relationship with Lucas today. He at least also had to find out how much money Lucas had and whether or not Lucas would give him another gift worth a few million dollars.
So when he saw Gretchen in a conflict with Lucas and Charlotte at the entrance of the hotel earlier, he had merely rebuked Gretchen without reprimanding Charlotte for being disrespectful to her elders. He had also saved Lucas from a scolding then.
But he never expected that Lucas would be such a troublemaker and end up causing two big wigs to show up here today to settle scores with him, completely ruining his precious grandson’s wedding.
He absolutely hated Lucas to the core and detested him much more than before!
Besides, by doing so, Eddie was trying his best to paint a good image of the Turners in front of the helmsmen of the Parkers and the Bensons.
As long as these two big shots were willing to give the Turners a hand, it would be a godsend opportunity to them. They would be able to break away from the identity of a farmer family and rise to become the subject of envy!
Eddie didn’t expect much. He would be satisfied as long as the Turners could become a top-tier family in LA. A second-tier one would be fine with him too.
Eddie immersed himself in his fantasies gleefully.
Karen had always been afraid of getting berated by Eddie. So as soon as she heard his rebuke, she immediately felt that it was all Lucas’s fault. She immediately rushed toward him and raised her hand to slap his face.
“You damn good-for-nothing! I’ve wanted you to divorce my daughter for a long time, but you’ve been shamelessly staying in our place and refusing to leave. Great, now you’ve created trouble for me. Why didn’t you die out there before? Hurry up and get lost. Get on your knees to apologize to Mr. Parker and Mr. Benson!”
Of course, Karen’s slap didn’t land on Lucas’s face, as one of Flynn’s bodyguards stopped her.
Karen was about to lose her temper. But when she saw the tall and burly bodyguard and felt the excruciating pain coming from her wrist being squeezed, she didn’t dare to say a single word.
Bullying the weak and fearing the strong had always been Karen’s style.
Thus, although the Turners didn’t dare to make a direct move against Lucas, they all hurled insults at him.
All of them were blaming Lucas for causing trouble for the Turners by offending big shots that they absolutely couldn’t afford to offend. One by one, they all wanted to bring Lucas to Matthew and Damon with their own hands and make him get on his knees to apologize.
Cheyenne looked at her relatives and turned pale as she heard their callous and hurtful remarks.
Deep down, she was extremely disappointed with these so-called relatives.
Charlotte’s delicate face was tensed up sullenly with anger written all over it as she clenched her fists.
She gritted her teeth with all her might while bearing in mind the faces of these people in front of her humiliating Lucas. What bullshit relatives? They’re all a bunch of garbage!
At this moment, Nikki, who had been cowering in the crowd and hadn’t spoken for a long time, suddenly squeezed through the crowd to step forward and say something to Damon loudly.
Her words immediately made all the people in the ballroom look at her with great astonishment.
She said, “Mr. Parker, I know who killed your grandson!”
Damon’s gaze immediately darted over like the blade as he stared at Nikki. “What did you say?”
Justin’s heart skipped, and he hurriedly chided, “Nikki, you shut up!”
He never expected that his daughter, who had always been well-behaved, understanding, and presentable, would suddenly speak up at this juncture about the very issue that the helmsman of the Parkers was most concerned about.
Nikki wasn’t even at Caldo Mountain when Tristan and his scion friends had gathered for a race last night, so how could she know who the real murderer was?
Moreover, as far as he knew, even the Parkers hadn’t been able to find any evidence at the scene of the car crash, so how could Nikki know? The only possibility was that she was just making a wild guess!
It would be fine if she made the right guess. But if she was wrong, Damon, whose grandson was the victim, definitely wouldn’t spare her.
She might even get the Herons involved too!
Nikki is so reckless, and she’s acting presumptuously without discussing this with me beforehand. She really needs to be disciplined properly!
Damon narrowed his eyes.
He remembered meeting Nikki at the Lion Restaurant last night and knew that she had a deep hatred for Lucas. According to Kenneth’s account last night, she had sowed discord and tried to create trouble several times last night, which caused him to suffer in Lucas’s hands. She had even caused Tyron to offend Lucas, who ended up breaking his arm.
Thus, Matthew flew into a rage and wanted to let his bodyguards toy with her.
In the end, she only managed to escape from the fate of getting violated and marred by his bodyguards all because of Lucas.
Yet Damon saw extreme resentment for Lucas in her eyes, and she seemed to hate Lucas even more now than she did last night, which Damon found interesting.
This woman is indeed a vicious and shameless bitch!
But it doesn’t matter. As long as she resents Lucas, she can be considered to be on my side, so I might as well use her to my benefit.
“If you’re intending to tell me that my grandson’s death is related to Lucas Gray, you can save it,” Damon deliberately said coldly.
In fact, even though they hadn’t found any solid evidence to prove that Lucas had murdered Tristan, they were certain that he was the culprit and needed that conjecture to pin the crime on Lucas.
Otherwise, it would be too embarrassing if the esteemed Parker family couldn’t even find out who the murderer of their descendant was.
No one actually cared if Lucas was really the murderer or not.
Even if he was wrongly accused, they could just kill the real murderer when they found him. That would be enough to avenge Tristan!
So Damon was a little curious as to what Nikki had to say now.
Nikki pointed at Lucas and said loudly in a righteous manner, “The person who killed Tristan is none other than Lucas Gray! I witnessed it with my own eyes!”
