MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 3 - Season 5 Episode 25
Everyone subconsciously moved away.
They all initially thought that the reason Lucas stepped on Tyron’s face was undoubtedly to force Matthew into making a deal with him so that he could leave.
But who knew that Lucas would break Tyron’s arm right in front of Matthew?
By doing so, he was showing his blatant disrespect for the helmsman of the Benson family.
Is he so fearless because he’s really the son of a prestigious family?
Matthew leaped over to hug his son. When he saw the ghastly sight of his son’s distorted arm, he was fuming, but he could only stare at Lucas’s figure as he left. He didn’t instruct the bodyguards to stop Lucas either.
He had to find out Lucas’s identity clearly before making further plans.
Seeing Lucas about to leave with Cheyenne, Nikki, who was hiding at the back, began to get extremely anxious.
If they let Lucas leave now, she would get much less credit.
Nikki gritted her teeth and stepped forward to point at Lucas while saying loudly, “Mr. Benson, Mr. Parker, don’t be fooled by this man! He’s not the son of a prestigious family but just an incompetent and useless good-for-nothing! He’s been married to my cousin as a live-in husband for six years, and I know everything about him! Don’t let him deceive you with his pretentious front!”
Lucas suddenly stared at Nikki with a wisp of intense murderous intent in his eyes.
He had already spared her once and let her go on account that Cheyenne had pleaded for mercy on her behalf.
But she was completely unrepentant and repeatedly caused trouble to make Matthew, Damon, and the others deal with Lucas.
Indeed, she was an ingrate who would never learn her lesson!
Cheyenne’s expression changed drastically, and she looked extremely sullen.
Just now, she had begged Lucas to let Nikki off on account that they were cousins when Nikki was bawling in misery.
But Nikki once again tried to cause trouble and stopped these bigwigs from sparing Lucas and Cheyenne. Just how much of a grudge did she have against them?!
Cheyenne flew into a rage and shouted, “Nikki Heron, if you continue spouting nonsense again, don’t blame me for ignoring familial ties!”
Nikki was exactly the type who would never learn their lesson until they were on the brink of death. She had pleaded with Cheyenne desperately just now only because she was in a dangerous situation. She had already found it to be humiliating, and now that she was still alive and well, she didn’t take Cheyenne’s words seriously at all.
Ignoring the hostile expression on Cheyenne’s face, Nikki continued to yell, “I’m telling the truth! Lucas Gray is just good at fighting. That’s all. He’s actually a penniless man who has nothing to his name. He can’t even compare to ordinary affluent families, let alone prestigious families like you guys! Mr. Benson, if you let him intimidate you into letting him leave scot-free even after breaking Tyron’s arm, who will respect the Bensons once word about this gets out?”
Nikki was full of righteous indignation, as if she was entirely thinking for the Bensons.
Although her words sounded somewhat disrespectful, and she seemed to be inciting them, Nikki didn’t have any other choice.
She had to make Matthew feel that what she said was right so that her purpose of trying to get connected to the Bensons could be achieved to the very best.
Nikki’s words made all the bigwigs present doubtful and apprehensive.
They wondered, Could this extremely powerful-looking young man really be just a live-in husband at the bottom of society?
But judging from his aura and demeanor, he doesn’t seem to be a live-in husband who’s just a good-for-nothing!
Besides, even Stanley, the former top expert of LA, was being subservient toward Lucas. If he was really just a good-for-nothing, how could he have made Stanley treat him with such respect?
Nikki didn’t believe that Lucas was some big shot because of her preconceived prejudices against him that had existed for years. But the bigwigs present were all sly old foxes who were extremely careful and scheming.
So they remained skeptical about Nikki’s words and didn’t believe it at all.
Various thoughts flashed through Matthew’s mind, and he clenched his fists tightly, torn between issuing orders to grab Lucas and letting him go.
But his cautiousness overruled everything else.
This was a matter of grave importance, and the slightest carelessness could cause the Bensons to end up provoking a powerful expert.
Besides, he had already made up his mind long ago that he would send people to investigate Lucas’s identity and background properly. Anyway, Nikki already said that Cheyenne and Lucas were her cousin and cousin-in-law. If they dared to lie to him, he would still be able to grab Lucas sooner or later!
Matthew’s expression changed rapidly, while Lucas remained composed and waited for him to make a decision.
At this moment, Matthew finally raised his head. But instead of looking at Lucas, he looked at Nikki and said in a gloomy tone, “Did you just say that no one will respect the Bensons or take us seriously if word about this matter gets out?”
Nikki hurriedly said, “Yes, the esteemed scion of the Benson family had his arm broken by a good-for-nothing, but the helmsman didn’t dare to take responsibility for it. If others hear about this, the reputation of the Bensons will definitely be affected. When the time comes, who will be wary and fearful of the Bensons like before?”
Matthew narrowed his eyes. “Try repeating yourself again.”
Nikki was slightly puzzled, but she nevertheless bit the bullet and continued, “Well… Although I won’t think so, I can’t guarantee that other people won’t after hearing about this matter! After all, this matter is a great shame for a powerful and domineering family like the Bensons, isn’t it?”
“Haha!” Matthew suddenly sneered twice as his expression became menacing. Immediately afterward, he slapped Nikki’s face!
“Shameless woman, who do you think you are? How dare you speak to me in such a manner?!”
Nikki was caught off guard by the slap to her face, which immediately turned red and swollen on one side. A trace of blood dripped from the corner of her mouth, and two of her teeth were knocked loose by the slap.
She looked up at Matthew with shock and horror written all over her face, filled with bewilderment, as she couldn’t figure out how she had angered him. “I… I… Ah!”
Matthew grabbed Nikki’s hair, dragged her body over with great force, and yelled at her menacingly, “Quit playing those lowly and scheming tricks in front of me! You’re just trying to use me to deal with him, aren’t you? Do you think I’m as stupid as you are?!”
He yanked at Nikki’s hair and flung her to the ground. “How dare you try to make me your pawn? Lowly wench, you’re not fit to do that!”
“Arrghhh!” Nikki let out an ear-piercing shriek as she was thrown onto the ground ruthlessly.
“M-Mr. Benson, I-I didn’t have such intentions at all! I was just stating facts, and I really said it for the sake of the Bensons. You must believe me!”
Her cheeks were red and swollen, and a large bunch of her hair had been pulled out by Matthew. She looked to be in an extremely miserable state.
But no one sympathized with her.
Everyone could see clearly that she had suddenly stepped forward to interject with ill intentions. Besides, it was also obvious that she had intended for Matthew to grab Lucas for the sake of the so-called reputation of the Benson family.
Even a fool wouldn’t believe that she wasn’t deliberately making use of Matthew for her own interests and selfish intentions!
“Hmph, how dare you try arguing with me?!” Matthew kicked Nikki twice more and instructed the bodyguards behind him coldly, “I’ll leave this bitch for you guys to enjoy. Do whatever you want with her. You can kill her too!”
