Translator:Atlas StudiosEditor:Atlas Studios
In fact, Chris was thinking the same thing. He decided that he couldnt let this man leave easily!
But he now had lots of doubts within him.
In order to keep his affair with Sharon a secret, he had chosen to stay in this private villa away from the Douglases main residence. Not only were there a couple of bodyguards guarding the entrance, but there were also some of his personal bodyguards guarding the door to this room.
Yet this stranger actually managed to kick the heavy door of the room off its hinges and barge right in, while his bodyguards outside did nothing to stop him. Perhaps they were caught off guard. But now that Lucas was already standing in front of him and had said so many things to him, those bodyguards were still nowhere in sight.
That could only mean that his bodyguards had been incapacitated!
At this point, Chris was frightened.
His personal bodyguards were not weaklings but professional bodyguards that he had hired at great cost! If even they were incapacitated, it just went to show that the strength of this young man in front of him was not to be underestimated!
Countless thoughts crossed Chriss mind, and he tried to be as calm as possible. Who exactly are you? What do you want by suddenly barging into my villa?
Lucas raised his eyebrows and smiled faintly. Chris Douglas, now that youve become the helmsman of your family, have you forgotten that you personally brought that brother of yours, Gordon, to apologize to me not long ago?
Hearing Lucas mention Gordon and the matter of the apology, Chris finally remembered who Lucas was. Oh, its you! Youre the live-in son-in-law of the Carters, arent you? Whats your name again? I cant recall your name now.
With a much more relaxed expression, Chris picked up a bath towel that had fallen under the bedside table and wrapped it around his waist.
After learning that Lucas was just someone he thought was far inferior to him, a sense of superiority surged within Chriss heart.
Sharon finally recognized Lucas too, and she hurriedly exclaimed, Hes Lucas Gray, the good-for-nothing who got kicked out by the Carters!
She absolutely abhorred Lucas to the core, and she merely failed to recognize him just now because she was overwhelmed with panic and nervousness.
During their first encounter at the kindergarten, Lucas had humiliated her in public and stopped her from hitting Charlotte. Following this incident was an altercation at the hotel restaurant, where Lucas had slapped her mercilessly and snatched away the top-quality bracelet that she had painstakingly obtained. She was even forced to swallow her pride and apologize to Karen, that uncouth shrew. In the end, her husband, James, even gave her several stern warnings.
These incidents were a huge insult to the snobbish and arrogant Sharon, and the cause of it all was the man in front of her!
Although James had previously warned her not to mess with Lucas or confront him, Sharon obviously couldnt take it lying down.
Her husband had yet to gain complete control of the Wilson family, so he didnt have enough authority or power at the moment. Others nitpicked on him all the time, but he had to bear with it. But Chris, who was beside her, was much different. He was already the rightful helmsman of the Douglas family, whom no one could disobey.
Sharon wanted to take advantage of Chriss power today to get rid of Lucas completely!
Chris looked at Lucas and suddenly said with a grin, So its you. I remember that my nephew, Brad, was severely injured by you and ended up dying during his hospitalization.
That younger brother of mine, Gordon, also had his legs broken by my father because of you. Later on, he was grief-stricken by the death of his beloved son, and his injuries relapsed, so he passed away too.
And my father, the former head of my family, also fell into shock and infuriation after hearing of the consecutive deaths of my nephew and brother. He accidentally had a fall at home and suffered a hemorrhage in his brain, causing him to pass away too.
Within two days, three of my family members died, and you are the reason for it. Lucas Gray, I was planning to do justice to my family, but I didnt expect you to come looking for me before I went to you.
Chris spoke gloomily while staring at Lucas with a sinister gaze, as if Lucas was the one who caused those deaths.
Of course, if others heard Chriss one-sided claim, it might really seem that he was telling the truth.
But Lucas had already thoroughly investigated Chris a long time ago. In fact, he also had evidence of Chris secretly sending someone to kill Gordon and Brad during their hospitalization.
So after hearing Chriss accusation, Lucas couldnt help bursting into laughter. Mr. Douglas, have you been brainwashing yourself for too long and forgotten exactly how they died?
Chriss expression abruptly changed, and he narrowed his eyes while staring at Lucas in shock and apprehension.
Hearing what Lucas said, he wondered,Does Lucas Gray know my secret?
I dont understand what you mean, Chris said after calming down, feigning ignorance. But he slowly reached his right hand under the pillow.
Hah, you must be joking, Mr. Douglas. Youve already done everything, and now youre telling me you dont understand? With Hugo, Gordon, and Brad Douglas dead, you would become the next successor in line. After their deaths, didnt you, an illegitimate son with no blood ties to the Douglas family, succeed as the helmsman? Lucas said nonchalantly with a derisive smirk.
He had long since asked Jordan to investigate everything thoroughly. Hugo had two sons, namely Chris and Gordon, but actually only Gordon was related to him by blood.
As for Chris, he was the child that Hugos wife had with her illicit lover.
After learning the truth, Hugo had been infuriated, and he had even thought of killing Chris, this bastard. But later on, he had no choice but to suppress those thoughts for the sake of maintaining the pride of the family and satisfying his desire for revenge. Not only did he not disclose Chriss marred birth status, but he had even sung praises about Chris and told everyone that he would make Chris his successor.
Hugos decision to do that was just to promote Chris to a higher position and make him think that he would become the next successor of the Douglas family before ruthlessly shattering his beautiful dream.
But he didnt expect that Chris had learned the truth a long time ago and had just been enduring it while making use of what Hugo said to kill him, his son, and his grandson to gain control of the family.
Hugo had been outwitted by Chris, who was ruthless, merciless, and vicious.
When Chris heard Lucas say the words illegitimate son, his facial muscles twitched fiercely, and the gaze in his eyes became sinister and dangerous.
Chriss lowly birth status would forever be a thorn in his heart!
But not many people knew about this matter, especially since the three Douglas family members had died. So how did Lucas, a live-in son-in-law of the Carters, find out about it?
Lucas Gray, who exactly are you? Chris questioned domineeringly with a menacing expression as his hand reached out to grab something under the pillow.
