Chapter 1126: “The Unfolding Rebellion”
A sound of flesh tearing echoed in the air.
Harrison’s sudden attack was swift and unannounced. He plunged the knife into Max’s chest, piercing through his body.
Blood trickled down from the blade, drop by drop, as Max stood there in shock, staring at the knife that had impaled him. His face was filled with disbelief.
He couldn’t have imagined that his own beloved younger brother, his own flesh and blood, would suddenly turn against him and stab him so ruthlessly.
In an instant, everyone in the room fell into stunned silence.
No one had expected that Harrison, who had appeared calm and composed just moments ago, would suddenly attack his own brother.
If his actions could have been attributed to drunkenness before, the situation had now taken a completely different turn.
“You… How dare you…”
Max’s eyes widened, and he tried to speak, but blood gushed from his mouth before he could utter another word.
His body swayed for a moment, then he collapsed to the ground, lifeless.
“Big Brother, don’t worry too much. I aimed slightly off from your heart, so it won’t kill you immediately. Just lie there quietly for now, and don’t get in the way,” Harrison said calmly.
As he spoke, he casually discarded a handkerchief, wiping the blood off his fingertips.
His demeanor remained calm, as if he had merely completed a trivial task.
“You bastard! How dare you!”
Seeing this, General Murray was furious. “You attacked your own brother when he was offering you advice. You’re completely insane! Guards, seize this traitor!”
In response to his command, a group of armed soldiers rushed into the room.
However, Harrison remained unfazed. He simply tossed the handkerchief onto the ground.
The next moment, the two rows of bodyguards who had been standing against the wall made their move.
Like ferocious tigers pouncing on their prey, they launched coordinated attacks.
These bodyguards were powerful, exceptionally fast, and had been well-prepared. As soon as they joined the fray, they overwhelmed the soldiers, who were caught off guard, leaving them with no chance to resist.
The situation in the room shifted dramatically.
The sudden turn of events left General Murray furrowing his brows.
He hadn’t expected so many intruders to infiltrate his birthday celebration.
In other words, some of the guests present had been bought off.
“Harrison! Do you even realize what you’re doing? Are you rebelling?” Caden angrily shouted.
“Harrison! You’re playing with fire!” Caden warned. “I advise you to drop your weapons, surrender with your followers, or you’ll regret it!”
Caden believed that his younger brother was making a grave mistake by opposing the Murray family within the walls of the General’s Mansion.
“Harrison! You’re being reckless!”
Caden’s voice was filled with anger and frustration. “Today, I will teach you a lesson!”
Despite the chaotic scene and the tense atmosphere, Harrison maintained his composure. He knew that the situation had changed, and now, he held the upper hand.
“Take a moment to consider your actions,” Harrison said calmly. “I control the situation here now. Everything will be as I say.”
“Humph! Do you think you can control the entire General’s Mansion with just these people? You’re delusional!”
Caden retorted, undeterred. “Guards, capture these intruders!”
The General’s Mansion was not a place where just anyone could cause chaos.
“You’re making a grave mistake! You’re going too far!” The members of the Murray family were furious and disappointed with Harrison’s actions.
What had once been a united family gathering had now turned into a life-and-death struggle. Brother was turning against brother, and the situation seemed irreparable.
“Please take a good look. I am the one in control of the situation now,” Harrison replied calmly.
“Capture these intruders! Capture these intruders!”
