Chapter 1226 Trent’s Deadline
Looking across the entire Balermo Region, among the younger generation, there was no one who could compare to him.
Everyone believed that under Tyler’s leadership, the Grant family would become even more illustrious and eventually dominate the entire Balermo Region.
Therefore, when news of Tyler’s engagement was announced, not only Millsburg but also the prominent figures, wealthy merchants, and officials from major cities in Balermo came to pay their respects.
Early in the morning, the Grant family was already bustling with guests, and the scene was grand.
At this moment, in the meeting hall.
Tyler sat in the center with an indifferent expression, unmoved by the external extravagance.
On his left and right sides, various important members of the Grant family sat, including uncles, aunts, cousins, and more distant relatives. They all sat submissively, not daring to breathe heavily.
Ever since he had been promoted to the position of Dark Panther Cavalry General, Tyler had taken over the position of family head from his grandfather.
At first, some of the older generations expressed dissatisfaction, believing that Tyler’s generation lacked seniority and qualifications.
The result was that within three days, those opposing elders either died or were seriously injured, with none having a good ending.
Under such ruthless methods, in less than half a month, Tyler had completely taken control of the entire family.
This perfectly illustrated the saying, “Those who follow me will prosper, those who oppose me will perish.”
Over the past few years, Tyler’s authority had even surpassed that of his grandfather, becoming a figure to be feared and respected by all.
“Trent, the time is up. Where is what I want?” After a long pause, Tyler finally spoke.
In an instant, everyone’s gaze focused on the end of the seats.
Sitting there were members of the Harmon family.
“Well…,” Trent’s face stiffened, unsure of how to respond.
They had promised to deliver the treasure map before daybreak, and now they couldn’t produce the treasure, which was quite embarrassing.
“What’s the matter? Did you all take my words as if they were just blowing in the wind?” Tyler’s expression gradually turned cold.
“We dare not, we dare not!” Trent waved his hands repeatedly and said with a forced smile, “Young Lord Tyler, please give us a little more time. We will definitely deliver the treasure before nightfall today!”
“I don’t like to haggle. If you don’t have the treasure map, then today’s engagement banquet doesn’t need to take place. I will publicly announce your cancelled engagement, and you will have to bear the consequences!” Tyler’s tone became more severe.
His words were now tinged with a threat.
Trent was so scared that he shivered, and cold sweat broke out all over his body.
He knew very well about Tyler’s ruthless methods. If they couldn’t produce the treasure map, the entire Harmon family would be in trouble!
At this moment, Kate, dressed in a red bridal gown, hurriedly entered the meeting hall.
“Kate, do we have any news?” Trent’s eyes lit up as if he had seen a savior.
Kate nodded and looked at Tyler with a smile, “Tyler, please be patient. The treasure map is already on its way. It will definitely be in your hands within half an hour!”
“Oh? Is that so?”
Tyler raised an eyebrow, and his cold expression finally eased slightly. “That’s the best. Otherwise, I’ll be very angry.”
“Tyler, the treasure map should be fine, but there might be a little trouble later. I hope you won’t mind,” Kate gave a preemptive warning.
Although she had a hostage in her hands, she couldn’t guarantee that Dustin wouldn’t cause trouble.
“As long as there’s a treasure map, even if the sky falls, I’ll bear it for you,” Tyler said calmly, his words full of dominance.
“That’s not a problem then,” Kate breathed a sigh of relief.
As they were talking, a thunderous voice suddenly rang out in the sky, deafening.
“Tyler! Get the hell out here!!”
