Chapter 249: Betrayal
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Finn Taylor, what right do you have to be speaking here? You’re just a matrilocal son-in-law of the Larson family—a piece of trash! Do you really think you managed to win the competition because of your own skills? It’s only because of our grace and our teachings that you managed to win. Just think about what you’ve done over the past three years—nothing!”
“I’m going to make myself clear today—I’m going to strip your family of all projects in three days’ time. If you’re willing to submit to me, kneel for two whole hours at the peak of Pacific Heights. I’ll let the Larson family off then. Otherwise, I’m going to make sure that the entire Larson family dies a horrible death!”
Kevin Jones had made himself clear—he wasn’t going to back down until he killed off the entire Larson family.
“Yvette Larson, you’re impressive. You’ve just humiliated the family at Grandpa’s funeral. Do you think you’re still worthy of being the family head?” There were two people standing at the gate of the Larson family’s residence.
Nobody was surprised to see one of them—Eleanor Larson. Although she hadn’t been around, she had rushed back the moment her father informed her that her grandpa had passed on.
Yet, almost everyone was stunned to see the other—it was Quince Larson!
‘Isn’t he dead?’ This was the first thought that came to everyone’s mind. ‘Did Finn Taylor choose to let him off? That can’t be. That’s impossible!’
“Quince, you’re still alive?” Franklin Larson stood up and rushed forward.
Quince Larson was his son. He had thought that Finn Taylor had killed his son, and that was why he’d concealed a dagger under his clothes today.
He had thought it through—he was going to find a way to end Finn Taylor’s life today.
“Don’t worry, Dad. Not only did I not die, but I even met a benefactor! He saved me and even gave me ten billion dollars to rebuild the Larson family!”
Who would’ve thought that Quince Larson would have such good luck? Not only had he not been killed, but he had even gotten such a windfall!
“What happened?” Yvette Larson—who was standing next to her husband—felt that something was amiss. ‘Given my understanding of him, he’d never do so. He’d never let an enemy off just like that.’
“Someone powerful gifted my younger brother a dog to bite me.”
Yvette Larson knew that the dog he was speaking of was Quince Larson. “And he agreed to it?”
The word ‘dog’ was like a stab to Quince Larson’s heart.
He’d painted a glorious image of himself in front of everyone. After all, he had ten billion dollars in his bank account now. Yet, he knew full well that he was no more than a dog to that elder, who had even told him that he had an owner—Donovan Taylor.
That was utter humiliation.
“Finn Taylor, don’t try to be smart with your words. I’m sure you must be feeling unwell now.”
Yvette Larson had noticed that too—her spouse would frown from time to time and press on his abdomen as well.
She had been wondering what was going on, and it seemed like her husband had gotten injured. “Are you alright?”
Gremlin was the second strongest in the whole of Peregrine Hall—the first being Maximus Brugel.
It would be a lie if Finn Taylor said that he was fine after enduring a kick from him, but it wouldn’t be so easy to crush him just like that. He just needed some time to recuperate.
“Ms. Larson, Grandpa handed the position of family head to you, so I won’t try to snatch it from you. But now that the family is in such grave danger, I’m obliged to help the family out of this rut as the Larson family’s eldest grandson. I’ve decided to rebuild the Larson family. Anyone who doesn’t believe in Yvette Larson and wants to follow me is welcome.”
Quince Larson’s words were obviously targeted at Yvette Larson. ‘Do you think you’re so good just because you became the family head on the account that I hurt Grandpa? So what? Do you think I’m going to be struck down so easily? I’m going to establish a new Larson family today and let you see that you’re nothing to the Larson family. You were nothing in the past, now, and in the future!’
“Quince, Grandpa trusted you the most. We believe in you.”
“Yes, Quince. You’re our greatest hope.”
“Quince’s future child will be a Larson. Who knows what surname Yvette Larson’s child will have? Perhaps the child will be a Taylor or even have another surname.”
Their words were getting more vicious by the minute, and it didn’t even matter to them that Quince Larson had killed the Old Master. On account of the ten billion dollars, they had all chosen to stand on Quince Larson’s side.
Just like that, ninety percent of the Larson family had left. The remaining ten percent were either too old to bother or bore grudges with Quince Larson and wouldn’t benefit from siding with him.
Given such circumstances, it didn’t mean much even if Yvette Larson was the so-called ‘family head’ anymore.
The only evidence that they had against Quince Larson was their grandpa’s own words. But now that he was dead, there was no longer the need to bring that up anymore.
“How do you feel, Yvette Larson? Everyone has betrayed you.”
Yvette Larson remained silent. ‘Since they have chosen to leave me, there’s no need to try to keep them. All I need to do is bring the Larson family to greater heights and make them regret this decision.’
Quince Larson seemed disappointed by her lack of response. He glanced at the Larson Corporation employees who had come to attend his grandfather’s funeral.
Joseph Larson had been the chairman of the company, so it was only natural for the employees to attend his funeral.
“The Larson Corporation is in grave danger now that someone has provoked important men. This boat could capsize at any time, and you guys are the paddlers on this boat. Will you choose to die with Yvette Larson or come aboard my ship? What’s your choice?”
Quince Larson’s words caused a flurry of activity amongst the employees. To tell the truth, not a single one of them thought well of Yvette Larson.
The Larson Corporation had already been on the verge of collapsing and going bankrupt because of the Sullivan family terminating their contract. Now, they were even being targeted by so many other prominent families in the city.
It would be hard for them to overcome this, so it was an obvious choice for them. Besides, the one offering them a job was no stranger to them.
They turned to Yvette Larson, not knowing what to say..
