Chapter 1238 The Denial
The Grant family had been a top-tier aristocratic family for a hundred years due to their accumulated strength, particularly the previous family head, Thaddeus, who was a brilliant strategist.
In his younger years, he had been shrewd in choosing his master in the struggle for imperial power, supporting the right side, and then continuously assisting in their rise, becoming the main pillar of the Grant family and finally being personally granted the title of “Loyal and Brave Count” by the emperor.
His power and status, as well as his personal bravery, were no weaker than General Murray’s. In some aspects, he even surpassed him.
The only difference was that General Murray had earned his reputation on the battlefield, while Thaddeus had achieved his through political maneuvering.
Although their paths were different, both were top-tier figures in their own right.
“Hahaha… This is great! The old family head has finally appeared!”
“With the old family head here, who dares to be presumptuous in the Grant family?”
Seeing Thaddeus, the Grant family’s members were filled with joy. It was as if they had found their backbone, dispelling the previous gloomy atmosphere.
“Daughter! We’re saved! We’re saved!”
Trent felt as if he had been granted a reprieve and was overjoyed. He had been worried about how to resolve the situation, but Thaddeus’s appearance gave him hope.
“Great! I knew I made the right choice!”
Kate was also overjoyed. Tyler not only had a promising future but also had a high-ranking grandfather.
The title of “Loyal and Brave Count” might not have real power, but it represented immense honor and an incomprehensible network of connections. In critical moments, they could even directly meet the emperor.
With such a big figure presiding, who could threaten the Grant family?
“Dustin, oh, Dustin, even if you have Lord Xenos backing you, what can you do? Even if you have General Murray as a backer, so what? In the end, you still can’t save Natasha, and you still can’t change the situation. You will always only be fit to be trampled under our feet!”
Kate muttered to herself, a cold smile on her face. She admitted that Dustin had some abilities, but unfortunately, he couldn’t stir up any big waves.
“General Murray, you and I are both significant figures. But now, you’re publicly bullying my grandson. Do you think that the Grant family is powerless?”
Thaddeus stood with his hands behind his back, his expression indifferent. He didn’t need to be polite since they had already come to cause trouble.
“Thaddeus, let’s be clear that your grandson started this trouble. We’re just seeking justice. Is there a problem with that?” General Murray calmly responded.
“If you want justice, you should speak directly to me. What kind of ability is it to bully a junior?” Thaddeus retorted arrogantly.
“You’ve been hiding and not coming out. Who knows where you are?” General Murray sneered.
“Now that I’m here, what do you want to say?” Thaddeus’s gaze was unwavering.
“If you want justice, either hand over the person voluntarily or we’ll search for her. Your choice.” General Murray got straight to the point.
“Bind someone? I heard there is no such thing from my grandson. What do you say?” Thaddeus asked, turning to his grandson.
“No, there isn’t,” Tyler shook his head.
“Well, did you hear that? My grandson says there isn’t. You can leave now.” Thaddeus waved his hand dismissively, as if he was chasing away flies.
“One word of denial, and you want to send us away? Do you think we’re idiots?” General Murray’s face turned cold.
“If you don’t like it, you can talk to me directly. Bullying the younger generation, what kind of ability is that?” Thaddeus replied with an air of dominance.
“If you want justice, either hand over the person voluntarily or we’ll search for her. Your choice.” General Murray was not one to mince words.
“Hand over the person voluntarily? Impossible. Searching for her? Even more impossible. The Grant family is not a place where you can act recklessly!” Thaddeus said sternly.
“Heh! You old man! Are you refusing to cooperate? Do you think that I can’t dismantle you today?” General Murray said angrily.
