Chapter 804 I’m Taking It
Andy knew that things were going awry, so he hurried forward to shield Florence.
Lucas’s aura was too aggressive and domineering, so much so that even Andy couldn’t withstand it. He felt as if Lucas was about to rip him apart, let alone Florence.
He had no doubt that Lucas would really kill Florence if she angered him!
Moreover, Andy was a martial arts practitioner who could keenly perceive the menacing and murderous aura coming from Lucas.
Generally, only people who had spent years killing people on the battlefield would possess such an aura. He was certain that Lucas must have killed countless people before!
The thought of it made Andy’s heart tremble.
Lucas looked to be less than thirty. What… what exactly had he gone through?
At the side, Pamela saw Lucas’s murderous gaze, and her heart started pounding rapidly while her face flushed red.
Just over a year ago, Lucas had the same expression as he had now when he appeared in front of Pamela at that terrifying moment when gangsters were bullying her. He was like a god descending from the sky.
His sharp and murderous gaze, tall and muscular figure, and handsome face were deeply etched in Pamela’s heart. She had never once forgotten him in the last year. Now, she had finally found this man.
Pamela was willing to do anything to win his heart!
Florence’s body was stiff, and all she felt was the cold sweat gushing out of her back. Seeing Lucas’s eyes, she felt extreme horror.
“You… No matter what, I’m your mother-in-law and your elder. Who speaks to their elders like this?” she said while trembling and bearing with the fear.
She told herself over and over again that Lucas was just her son-in-law. If she bowed down and showed fear to him, it would be difficult for her to establish her dominance as his mother-in-law in the future.
Lucas stared at her coldly. “I don’t care what your identity and seniority are. I won’t let off anyone who wants to act against my wife! You’re no exception!
“Mother-in-law and elder? Hah… Do you think you’re worthy?
“Also, no matter what kind of mission you’re on, and regardless of what you’re planning to use my wife and me for, you’d better drop your ideas immediately! Otherwise, if something happens in the future, I won’t be polite to you!”
Lucas stopped looking at the expression on Florence’s face and immediately held Chyenne’s cold hand as he led her out of the private room.
“You… you…” Florence could only helplessly watch Lucas and Cheyenne ignore her and leave the restaurant. She was so exasperated that she was about to go mad, and her face twisted into a hideous grimace.
“Outrageous! They’re both bastards! How dare he threaten me?! One day, I’ll make him pay!”
Florence was so furious that she grabbed a glass on the dining table and smashed it on the floor.
Andy’s lips moved slightly. He wanted to persuade her, but at the thought of Florence’s temper, he was afraid that she would take her anger out on him. So he wisely shut his mouth and made himself scarce.
Anyway, his duty was only to protect Florence, and he didn’t want to bother about other matters.
Seeing Florence losing her composure, Pamela crossed her arms and smiled. “Aunt Florence, you don’t look like a noblewoman now but a shrew. Even if you’ve failed the mission, you don’t have to lose your composure like this.”
“Pamela Howard!” Florence turned around and stared grimly at Pamela.
If Pamela hadn’t suddenly come and said that Florence had abandoned Cheyenne for power and status, Cheyenne would have probably already reunited with her long ago.
Things wouldn’t have ended up like this, where Cheyenne refused to acknowledge her as her mother.
It was all Pamela’s fault!
“Pamela, what’s wrong with you? Why did you suddenly come out to stop me and Cheyenne from reuniting?” Florence stared at Pamela with extreme displeasure, feeling a strong urge to give her beautiful niece two slaps on the face to make her wake up.
Pamela sneered. “Florence, you’re not going to blame me for this, are you? I’m not going to take the blame for this!”
She didn’t even bother to address Florence as her aunt now and simply called her by her name. Clearly, she intended to fall out with Florence.
“Pamela, what are you doing? I am your aunt! If you hadn’t suddenly jumped and caused trouble, my daughter would have acknowledged me long ago!” Florence said angrily.
“Besides, you’re clearly the one who said that you’re in love with someone else and refused to marry the Master of California no matter what. That’s why I tried to look for my daughter to get her to complete this mission! “But what about you? Not only did you not help me, but you kept sabotaging me and opposing me! Let me tell you. You’re entirely to blame for the failure this time! How dare you gloat in front of me? I’ll definitely tell the family the truth about what happened!”
Pamela’s face turned sullen. “Don’t try to push the blame on me! Since you want to play the blame game, I’ll make things clear with you! “From the first day you arrived in Orange County, you’ve been planning to marry your daughter to the Master of California. Yet you still pretended and deliberately provoked me. Wasn’t it just to make me admit that I don’t want to marry the Master of California, which is exactly what you wanted?
“Don’t think that I don’t know what your intentions are and what you’ve secretly done. Do I look that stupid to be at your mercy?
“I wanted to let you and Cheyenne reunite out of good intentions, but you acted up and ruined everything yourself! You made Cheyenne and the Master of California so upset that they left!
“Now, you’re still trying to blame me for the failure of the mission. How can I keep silent and take the blame?”
Pamela was exceptionally stubborn. As an heiress of the Howards, who had received elite education abroad, she wasn’t a pushover at all.
“In that case, don’t blame me for being unkind to you too! I’m telling you. I’m taking Cheyenne’s husband!” Pamela said with a look of determination, as if she was waging war.
