Chapter 127: Cursed Piece of Jade
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Walter Larson was agile, and it seemed like he was trained in martial arts too. Before the Larson family members could react, he had already made his way to Yvette Larson.
He raised his hand and was about to land a slap on her face.
That evoked horror in everyone there. ‘Who would’ve expected Walter Larson to be so emotional? He’s going to slap Yvette Larson in the face, in front of Joseph Larson no less! If he really slaps her, he won’t be slapping Yvette Larson alone. She represents Joseph Larson’s branch of the family. Recently, there have even been rumors that Yvette Larson will inherit the position of family head.’
It was clear that Walter Larson was trying to provoke Joseph Larson and put him on the spot by slapping the next family head.
Everyone stood there dazedly, feeling as though a revolution was about to take place in the Larson family.
Walter Larson was struck down, and so was a photo on the ancestral shrine.
As they looked over, everyone was stunned when they realized that it was Finn Taylor who had struck both down.
Finn Taylor strolled up quickly and stepped on Walter Larson’s face. “I told you that I wouldn’t let it go if you dared to do something to Yvette again. It seems like you didn’t take my words to heart. What, will you remember them now?”
Walter Larson was the head of the branch families. All three side-branches of the Larson family basically took instructions from Walter Larson alone.
But now, Finn Taylor was trampling all over him!
“Finn Taylor, let Walter Larson go!”
“Finn Taylor, Walter Larson is your elder. What are you trying to do?”
“Sir, are all your descendants this disrespectful?”
All three branch families’ members turned toward Joseph Larson and lashed out at him.
Even the Old Master didn’t know what to do.
“If you say that I’m being disrespectful, do you mean that you guys are being respectful while shouting at Grandpa, who’s the family head?”
“Finn Taylor, don’t make excuses. We only went that far because you forced us. Do you think we would’ve gone so far otherwise?”
“Oh, I was the one who forced all of you? Tell me then; have you done nothing to wrong your ancestors?”
The branch families’ members turned to glance at each other. They had no clue what Finn Taylor was talking about. ‘Has someone done anything wrong?’
“Let my father go!” Just then, they heard a voice from outside.
Everyone turned in shock. It was the only Larson that had been absent—Heather Larson.
They couldn’t help but wonder if Finn Taylor was talking about Heather Larson. ‘But that’s impossible. Heather Larson hasn’t been back home for years. What could she probably do to harm the family?’
Finn Taylor shook his leg and finally retracted it.
“Finn Taylor, what are you doing?” Heather Larson rushed up to help her father up. Witnessing this, she had already guessed that her father had lied to her to get her home. However, she still didn’t understand why her father had done so. “Dad, what’s going on?”
Walter Larson then told his daughter about everything that had happened.
Heather Larson supported her father to a chair before walking up to Finn Taylor. She raised her arm, trying to slap him.
However, she hadn’t expected Finn Taylor to reach out and grab her wrist.
“You… How dare you stop me?”
“Don’t they all say that you allow everyone in the Larson family to hit and scold you without fighting back?”
Finn Taylor shoved her away, and she fell back several meters away.
“Rumors aren’t always the truth, just like how the rumors say that you’re the most outstanding person in the Larson branch families. They even say that you haven’t been back to the Larson family for years, but is that really the case?” Finn Taylor turned to Quince Larson. “Have you really not met Heather Larson in three years?”
Quince Larson was stunned, never expecting Finn Taylor to target him. “No…”
Quince Larson hadn’t finished his sentence before the latter’s gaze shut him up. He felt that the other probably knew something.
As such, he didn’t try to hide it any further. “Alright, it’s true that Heather Larson has been back all this time. We’ve been secretly meeting her, and the last time we met was just last month.”
“We? Who else?”
Eleanor Larson took a step forward. “Me and your wife. Are you trying to drag us down? I bet you never thought that your wife would be involved too. What are you trying to do?”
Finn Taylor ignored Eleanor Larson, drawing laughter. “Alright, Heather Larson. What do you have to say?”
Heather Larson shrugged and said coldly, “I don’t have anything to say. It’s true that I was back, but is that a crime?”
The three branch families’ members agreed. “That’s right. Our Heather is so brilliant. She’s busy and only has time to meet a few people every time she’s back. Do you mean that she’s guilty just because she didn’t meet the head of our family?”
These people were fools and had been completely side-tracked.
“That’s right. She’s guilty, but it’s not because she didn’t meet the family head. Rather, it’s because she was plotting someone’s death.”
Finn Taylor’s words dumbfounded the entire family.
“Finn Taylor, don’t spout nonsense!”
“That’s right. What evidence do you have? How could you accuse Heather Larson?”
“If you don’t show us evidence, we’ll rip your mouth apart.” Everyone in the branch families was overwhelmed with emotions.
They had already thought of taking over the family a long time ago, and the only one capable of leading them was Heather Larson.
From the way they saw it, Finn Taylor was trying to suppress all three of their families by maligning Heather Larson.
Finn Taylor reached out and revealed a piece of jade. “Heather Larson, I’m sure you’re familiar with this piece of jade. There are a total of three such pieces. Quince Larson and Eleanor Larson probably have the other two.”
Quince Larson and Eleanor Larson were still in a daze at that moment, but they took out their pieces of jade in unison.
“Quince Larson, where did you get that piece of jade?”
“You’re right; it was a gift from Heather Larson. What are you trying to say?”
‘Which family is Quince Larson from? Is he stupid? Why is he speaking up for Heather Larson?’
“Heather Larson, I checked on your immigration records. Three months ago, you made a trip to Thailand. These three pieces of jade were from a temple there, and all three of these jade pieces are cursed. Whoever wears one of these jade pieces will have their energy sucked out of them until they die.”
