MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 7 - Season 12 Episode 47
After another toast, Hayden suddenly asked, “Mr. Dunne, I heard that the Dunnes will soon become one of the eight top families of DC. Are you going to replace one of the existing ones or become the ninth?”
Roger smiled smugly. “Nothing is confirmed yet. Don’t spout nonsense about this. If anyone from the eight top families hears it, it might cause trouble.”
Although he said so, the happy expression on his face was extremely obvious.
Samuel hurriedly said, “It’s only a matter of time! We’ve all heard about the Dunnes developing well and getting stronger and stronger. You’re not inferior to the eight top families of DC at all. You will become a new force among them in no time!
“When the time comes, the Dunnes will rightfully be one of the eight top families of DC! Here’s a toast to congratulate you in advance, Mr. Dunne!”
Samuel raised his glass and downed his drink in one go.
What he said made Roger feel extremely pleased.
Unwilling to lag behind, the rest hurriedly spoke.
“The Dunnes are really impressive! Mr. Dunne, once your family officially becomes one of the eight top families of DC, you will become the future helmsman of a top family. Everyone in DC knows how powerful that is!”
“Haha, Mr. Dunne, you’re an extraordinary person, and you will definitely become the strongest helmsman in DC in the future. Let us congratulate you in advance!”
“Mr. Dunne, don’t forget us when you become a mighty helmsman in the future!”
The few of them continued flattering Roger repeatedly, and the atmosphere was extremely lively.
Relishing in this feeling, Roger laughed out loud.
But when he saw Lucas, who was sitting opposite him, and Leila beside Lucas, a trace of insuppressible anger surged in his eyes.
Samuel, Alyssa, and the rest were staring closely at Roger’s face, so they naturally noticed the hatred in his eyes toward Lucas.
Alyssa and Bethany looked at each other and suddenly put down their drinks. They walked over to Leila and pulled her up. “Leila, we’ve drunk a bit too much. Let’s go to the restroom!”
Everleigh also put down her drink and said smilingly, “Let’s go together! We’re roommates going together. It’s so childish but so interesting. Hehe!”
The three of them tried to pull Leila to the restroom. Even if she was a fool, she would definitely be able to guess the reason.
After they left, only Roger, Samuel, Hayden, and Lucas would be left in the room.
It seemed that they wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to teach Lucas a good lesson.
Leila subconsciously felt worried because she knew that Alyssa’s boyfriend, Samuel, had learned Taekwondo for two years. If they got into a fight, Lucas might be at a disadvantage.
But when she saw his calm face, she smiled quietly.
Lucas actually had a powerful status and background. With the support of the Huttons, how could he be bullied by these people?
Thinking of this, Leila stopped worrying and left the room with her roommates.
After they left, Lucas faced the glares of the other three people in the private room.
Roger’s face became gloomy almost immediately, and he glowered at Lucas hostilely, dropping all his earlier pretense.
Samuel and Hayden were also staring at Lucas with dark expressions. They walked over to Lucas and trapped him between them, seemingly wanting to prevent him from escaping.
Roger said arrogantly, “Punk, leave Leila immediately. I can spare you once and even get the Dunnes to help your business. How about that?”
Hearing this, Lucas slowly put down his cutlery and even wiped his mouth with a napkin before saying, “I don’t need the Dunnes to help my business. And you don’t have the right to say that you can spare me either.
“Besides, must the woman you like be yours? That’s ridiculous.”
Samuel immediately hollered angrily, “How dare you speak to Mr. Dunne like that?! He was kind enough to give you a chance, but you didn’t treasure it and even made rude remarks. You must be tired of living.”
Hayden rebuked Lucas in exasperation, “You’re asking for it! Mr. Dunne will naturally get the woman he wants. Who are you to vie with him? You should consider whether you’re worthy of doing it or not!
“Since Mr. Dunne has taken a fancy to Leila, you should get lost immediately. Otherwise, I’m afraid you won’t even know how you’ll end up dying!
“We don’t need Mr. Dunne to lower his status and deal with you. We’ll teach you a lesson on his behalf!”
While speaking, Hayden rolled up his sleeves to reveal the bulging muscles on his arms.
Before Roger could say anything, Samuel and Hayden shouted furiously at Lucas with obvious threat in their tone.
Lucas sneered. “Why do you guys like being someone else’s dog?
“Your master hasn’t even said anything yet, but you’re already eager to help him bite someone. Hah, I wonder if your dear Mr. Dunne will reward you with some bones!”
Lucas sneered with contempt.
Lucas was already annoyed with these two people in front of them. From the moment they first met, they had been criticizing him and finding fault with him. Now, they even wanted to help Roger deal with him.
If not for Leila’s sake, Lucas wouldn’t have bothered to pay attention to them, let alone dine at the same table with them.
Lucas’s contemptuous remark was like two loud slaps striking Samuel and Hayden hard on their faces.
Although they were indeed trying their best to curry favor with Roger and willingly wanted to be his lapdogs, Lucas stating it so bluntly made their face burn with embarrassment, which soon turned into anger.
“Punk, what the f*ck are you talking about? Do you believe I’ll beat you to death?!” Hayden roared, grabbed a bottle of wine on the table, and smashed it at Lucas’s head.
If the wine bottle hit his head, it would definitely cause his head to split open and bleed profusely!
“You have a death wish!” Lucas snorted coldly.
Before Hayden’s arm reached him, he raised his leg and kicked Hayden, making him fall backward onto the floor.
Hayden fell to the floor, and the bottle of wine in his hand hit the wall behind him and shattered into pieces. The strong smell of alcohol permeated throughout the room.
