1240 Cleaning All Traces
It wasn’t that Edmund was timid, but the Hamiltons were a royal family branch after all. Just half an hour ago, they had just met Brett Hamilton, and they were extremely afraid of the Hamiltons.
If Lucas hadn’t been there, they would probably have really been unable to resist the pressure from the Hamiltons.
Now, the person in front of him was also from the Hamiltons. If they really killed him here, it might bring a catastrophe to Lucas.
“He deserves to die. Kill him!” Lucas said without hesitation.
Bruce and Edmund were astonished to hear the firm determination and murderous intent in Lucas’s tone.
They had just had a conflict with Brett, but they completely didn’t fall out with him, so there was still room for negotiation.
But if they really killed Angus here, they would form a deadly feud with the Hamiltons.
But thinking that Angus had offended Lucas’s wife and sister-in-law, they could understand why Lucas wanted to kill him.
At this moment, Angus could also sense that Lucas really wanted to kill him, while White Claw, the top expert by his side, had already been completely crippled. He now felt terrified.
“You… you are too audacious! Do you bumpkins know how prestigious my family is? Let me tell you. Even the eight top families of DC combined are no match for us!
“Furthermore, I’m a direct descendant of the Hamiltons, and my grandfather is the current helmsman of the family! If you dare to lay a finger on me, my grandfather will never let you off. Even if we raze all of California down to the ground, we won’t let you off!
“If you know what’s good for you, get lost immediately, and I might spare you! Do you hear me?”
Angus yelled hysterically. But at this moment, he no longer had the haughtiness he had before. Instead, he was full of fear.
Seeing that Lucas still wanted to kill him after he revealed the Hamiltons’ name, he just thought that Lucas didn’t know about them because he was a hillbilly. So he went all out to explain his family’s background to try and deter Lucas and the rest.
But Lucas didn’t want to bother with Angus at all. He just raised his hand and signaled for them to take action.
Edmund didn’t say anything else and ordered the experts behind him, “Do it!”
“Yes!” Two experts from the Coles immediately walked straight to Angus with strong killing intent.
Angus’s legs went limp, and he dropped to his knees. For the first time in his life, he felt boundless fear and the threat of death.
“No, no, no, please don’t kill me! I… I was wrong! Sir, I’m sorry. It’s my fault for being so daring. I apologize to you! I can compensate you with money!
“I… I can pay you ten million dollars! No, I’ll give you fifty million dollars. Please don’t kill me. Please let me off!” Angus begged with his face covered in fear.
He wasn’t that stupid, and he could still tell that Lucas was the one who called the shots here, so he immediately begged Lucas and even prostrated to him.
Lucas looked at him coldly, with only contempt in his eyes.
Angus wanted to exchange a mere 50 million dollars for his life. The value of his life was pathetically low!
Seeing Lucas completely unmoved, Angus panicked even more. He made up his mind and yelled, “I’ll give you two hundred million dollars! That’s all the cash I have now! If you still think it’s not enough, I can give you all the houses, cars, and stocks I own. Please just spare my life and let me go! I will never dare to offend your wife again!”
Angus was full of misery and regret but also resentment at the same time.
It was the first time in his life he had encountered such humiliation. Once he escaped, he would definitely take the Hamiltons with him and bathe Orange County in blood to make up for the shame he suffered today!
He would definitely rip Lucas into shreds to soothe his hatred!
But before Angus could finish speaking, he stopped abruptly.
A steel-like hand grabbed his neck and twisted it. Angus’s neck was broken, and he died on the spot!
Even at the moment of his death, his face was covered in disbelief, as he couldn’t believe that someone actually dared to kill him.
He didn’t even know who the person who killed him was.
At the side, the elderly man, who was on his last breath, widened his eyes in horror after watching Angus die. Then his eyes rolled backward, and his body went limp. He died on the spot as well.
Looking at the two corpses in front of him, Edmund asked carefully, “Mr. Gray, what should we do next?”
Edmund was still feeling anxious and worried about ordering people to kill the Hamilton scion.
Lucas instructed calmly, “Get rid of their corpses and make sure no one breathes a word about this. Also, clean up all the traces, including the surveillance here. Don’t let anyone find any traces of these two.”
Angus deserved to die. Although Lucas wasn’t afraid of the Hamiltons, he didn’t want them to come after him and hound him like mad dogs.
Thus, he decided to clean up the traces so that there was a chance the Hamiltons wouldn’t come looking for him.
Bruce and Edmund knew that the matter concerned their future, so they didn’t dare to be careless about it at all and quickly agreed.
“Rest assured, Mr. Gray. We’ll definitely clean up all the traces and make sure no one knows that Angus Hamilton was ever here!” The two assured Lucas.
The Hales and the Coles were now the top families in California, so Lucas believed that they were capable of handling this matter.
After handing the matter over to them, Lucas went to the hospital to check on Stanley’s condition. After hearing the doctor say that Stanley’s life wasn’t in danger, he felt relieved. Then he returned home to his villa in the middle of Pearl Lake.
As soon as he entered the villa, Charlotte and Cheyenne, who had been waiting in the living room for a long time, immediately dashed to him.
“Honey, are you alright?”
“Lucas, you’re finally home!”
The two of them carefully scrutinized Lucas and breathed a sigh of relief only after ensuring that he was unscathed.
But immediately afterward, the sisters looked a little awkward and hung their heads low, not daring to look at him at all.
If they hadn’t thrown a fit at him and gone out on their own today, they wouldn’t have met Angus and almost had an accident.
So facing Lucas, they were extremely uneasy and felt that they had made a mistake.
Charlotte, who had dragged Cheyenne out with her, especially felt regretful and guilty.
Cheyenne clearly didn’t believe the photos of Lucas and Lena in the first place, yet Charlotte had insisted that they teach Lucas a lesson. So she had pressured Cheyenne into ignoring him and even brought her out for a trip to Lotte Entertainment City. In the end, she had almost gotten them into serious trouble.
The thought of it overwhelmed Charlotte with so much guilt and self-reproach that she couldn’t bring herself to raise her head.
