Finn Taylor glanced at Ava Duncan. ‘It’s obvious that this young girl would fall into anyone’s trap with a little coaxing.’
To be honest, Finn Taylor took a fancy to such people. In today’s society, everyone tried to take advantage of others and deceived others without any care.
Few were like Ava Duncan.
“Stop it. Grandpa still has some important matters to discuss with our guests, so let’s go out.”
It didn’t matter if he had to address her as ‘Auntie’ normally, but Michael Sinclair couldn’t put his pride down and do so in front of so many other people.
“Humph! I’m staying here with Master. You can leave alone.”
Michael Sinclair knew that there was no way of convincing this young girl. “Grandpa, the guests are still waiting for me. I’ll go downstairs first.”
With that, he apologized to Finn Taylor and the best friends. “Mr. Taylor. I’m sorry. Please forgive me for not hosting you well; I’m just too busy.”
Finn Taylor waved him off, and Michael Sinclair finally left.
Now, only five of them were left in the room.
Finn Taylor picked up the empty teacup and said to Ava Duncan, “Please refill my cup.”
Ava Duncan huffed. “You’re drinking it too quickly.”
Although she said that, she left to pour him more tea.
Only after she left did Finn Taylor finally speak up. “Old Master, we’re here to congratulate you sincerely, but I wonder whether the Sinclair family thinks the same. Or is this a feast of vengeance?”
The Old Master’s eyes glinted. “What do you mean?”
“There’s no need to beat around the bush and pretend that you don’t know anything. Didn’t Michael Sinclair tell you about what happened a few days ago? I’m telling you again that we’re here to congratulate you sincerely. If the Sinclair family has any sinister plans up their sleeves, it’s still not too late to pull back.”
As soon as Finn Taylor finished his sentence, Ava Duncan returned.
He stood up and took the teacup from her. Then, he rubbed his head and placed the teacup down without taking a sip.
After that, he left.
Yvette Larson and Clarine Landon followed closely behind without any hesitation.
Louis Sinclair stared at the trio’s departing figures and then at the teacup. There was a meaningful look in his eyes. ‘Did he distract Ava Duncan on purpose? Who is he, and why do I feel so oppressed now? It somehow feels like something is going to go wrong with our mission today.’
But no matter how Louis Sinclair felt, he had no way of stopping the mission.
It was the Terre family and Walker family who had gotten in touch with him. They had forced him to agree to it in return for a collaboration with the Walker family.
If he were to go back on his words now, he would offend both the Terre family and the Walker family. Then, the Sinclair family would have no way to eke out a living.
Louis Sinclair rubbed his temples. ‘He’s just a young man who brought two women here. How powerful can one man be? Once the people from the Terre family and Walker family arrive, that young man will surely be dead.’
After walking out of the room, Michael Sinclair headed to the gate.
He was waiting for the men from the Terre family and the Walker family. Then, it would be time for them to act.
He had been utterly humiliated at the party that day. He had thought that he’d never be able to get his revenge. Who would’ve expected the Terre family to get in touch with them?
The Terre family made it clear that they had severed all ties with Connor Miller a long time ago.
Finn Taylor had simply been putting on an act.
Thinking about how a useless matrilocal son-in-law had thrown him into such a frenzy using such intimidation methods, Michael Sinclair was outraged. In fact, he felt like killing someone.
Today was the day of his revenge.
Finn Taylor brought his wife and her best friend to the Sinclair family’s garden, where there was a pavilion.
The pavilion was next to an artificial lake, which was home to several Koi fish.
“Finn Taylor, will the Sinclair family really do something to us?” It was Clarine Landon asking this question. Now, she was regretting her decision to follow Finn Taylor here.
She was even more regretful that she hadn’t persuaded them out of this. She couldn’t help but feel that something terrible was going to happen if they were to stay here any longer.
Just then, more than ten ATVs stopped at the gate of the Sinclair family’s residence.
Charles Sinclair and Michael Sinclair rushed up to welcome them.
The atmosphere was getting stranger, and everyone couldn’t help but feel uneasy. ‘We’re here for a celebration, but this doesn’t seem much like a celebration. Could something really be wrong?’
When they spotted dozens of men in suits and sunglasses getting out of the ATVs with metal rods in their hands, everyone finally flew into a panic.
Feeling the danger, everyone wanted nothing more than to leave. If they were to stay any longer, they would probably die.
But just as they attempted to leave, two men in black flashed their passes.
“The Terre family of New York.”
“The Walker family of New York.”
“Everyone, stay where you are. If you dare to move, we’ll kill you.”
Words from the Terre family were like the law, and everyone dared not do anything that went against them.
At that moment, there were over 100 people in the residence. They were all prominent figures in New York, yet not a single one of them dared to move.
“Bring us there,” ordered the men in black, and Michael Sinclair quickly led the way.
With Michael Sinclair at the head of the group, dozens of men walked into the compound.
Although everyone had questions in their hearts, nobody dared to speak up. After all, this concerned the Terre family and the Walker family.
If they were to say anything, they might very well lose their lives.
At the same time, Finn Taylor and the two ladies were still enjoying the gentle breeze in the pavilion.
But just then, Finn Taylor’s ears fluttered. He heard a series of footsteps—a very orderly series of footsteps.
From their footsteps, there were probably more than 50 people headed in their direction.
“They’re here.” Finn Taylor spat those words out and turned to his wife and Clarine Landon. “When they come over later, shut your eyes. Don’t open them until I tell you to. Do you understand?”
It was Yvette Larson and Clarine Landon’s first time seeing Finn Taylor so stern—they were both dumbfounded. They could only nod dazedly, not daring to say anything else.
“Oh, so you’re hiding here. We’ve finally found you.” Michael Sinclair was delighted when he caught sight of the trio.
“Michael Sinclair, it seems like I was too benevolent. I should’ve just killed you that day. Then, none of this would’ve happened.”
Michael Sinclair sneered. “You’re right. Unfortunately, you let me off the other day. But I’m not going to let you off today.”
Finn Taylor pointed at the men in black. “None of them are from the Sinclair family, right? Tell me who sent them, and I’ll kill only you. I won’t involve the rest of the Sinclair family.”
Michael Sinclair couldn’t help but chuckle. “You’re at death’s door, yet you’re still so stubborn.”
