MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 7 - Season 12 Episode 48
“Damn it. How dare you kick him?” Samuel hollered furiously after seeing Hayden attacked.
He moved to knee Lucas in the abdomen with the confidence he would make him keel over due to his two years of learning Taekwondo.
Samuel’s Taekwondo skills were mediocre moves that he had learned in his university’s club and utterly insignificant in the eyes of true martial artists, let alone Lucas.
Seeing Samuel’s weak and sloppy technique, Lucas didn’t bully him. He just raised his leg and kicked his abdomen like he had done earlier, immediately knocking Samuel over and making him scream loudly.
In merely ten seconds, both Hayden and Samuel had fallen to the floor, while Lucas was still standing calmly in the center of the room. Even the expression on his face remained unchanged.
When Roger saw this scene, his eyes widened in surprise.
He didn’t expect Lucas to have the guts to hit people in front of him!
Although Hayden and Samuel were not his underlings, they were indeed trying to please him and teach Lucas a lesson on his behalf. But Lucas beat them up in front of him, which was akin to insulting him.
“Punk, you have a lot of guts! How dare you offend the Dunnes in DC? You must have a death wish!” Roger sneered in a threatening tone.
Lucas smiled. “You can try.”
Frankly, the Dunnes were not even among the eight top families of DC, so it was just a matter of a few words for Lucas to wipe them out.
Lucas didn’t really take Roger’s threat seriously.
Besides, since both sides had already fallen out, Lucas couldn’t be bothered to pretend to be polite with them anymore.
The only thing he was worried about now was that he might slip up and kill these three weaklings in front of him.
Seeing Lucas standing there indifferently, Roger suddenly felt an unprecedented nervousness and fear for some reason.
This person was clearly only a young man two years younger than him, yet he felt an aura that was much stronger than his father’s.
In front of Lucas, it was as if he had become a junior, and he lacked any confidence. In fact, he felt that he had become so small that he was insecure.
This feeling made Roger pinch the palm of his hand. While staring at Lucas, he finally suppressed his fear.
Suddenly, the door of the private room was pushed open from the outside, and Alyssa and Bethany dashed in, their faces ashen. With fear all over their faces, they exclaimed nervously, “Bad news! Everleigh is in trouble!”
Roger immediately frowned and bellowed furiously, “What happened?!”
Leila also rushed back to the room at this time and said anxiously, “Everleigh just got dragged into another room!”
Roger flew into a rage. “Who has the audacity to drag my friend away?”
Although he and Everleigh had met for the first time tonight, she was obviously trying to hook up with him. In his eyes, he already regarded Everleigh as his woman. But now that she was dragged away, it was akin to cuckolding him.
Moreover, Leila, whom Roger had his eyes on, was standing right in front of him. If he couldn’t settle this matter and assert dominance, her impression of him would worsen. In that case, it would be even harder for him to win her heart.
Roger snorted coldly. “Don’t worry. I will definitely rescue Everleigh. The boss of this restaurant is my friend. As long as I say the word, no one is allowed to leave here!”
Then Roger glanced ambiguously at Lucas, his meaning obvious.
“These three girls are no match for them. Let’s go bring Everleigh back!” Roger took the lead in walking out of the private room.
Hayden and Samuel, whom Lucas had kicked to the floor, had already gotten up. After hearing what Roger said, they didn’t care that their stomachs were still hurting from Lucas’s kick and quickly followed Roger.
Since Roger had already spoken and even taken the lead to save Everleigh, they naturally had to follow him closely.
If they performed well tonight, Roger might value them. Even if they couldn’t become his followers, their life trajectories would change greatly as long as Roger gave them a little boost.
The three of them went toward the door of the private room, but Lucas pulled out his chair and sat down again without the slightest intention of going with them to save Everleigh.
“Lucas Gray, are you even a man?! We’re going to save Everleigh, but you’re sitting here. Don’t you plan to go with us?” Roger questioned in displeasure when he saw Lucas’s behavior.
Lucas said indifferently, “Mr. Dunne, you’ll definitely be able to bring her back. Does it matter if a small fry like me goes or not?”
Lucas wasn’t a saint in the first place, and the reason he appeared here today was purely because he had lost a bet and agreed to Leila’s request.
Besides, Lucas had nothing to do with Leila’s roommates and friends. As long as Leila wasn’t involved, he didn’t care at all.
If Everleigh was nice, Lucas might be willing to help her on Leila’s account.
But Everleigh was a scheming woman who had just sucked up to Roger. Her behavior had been simply unsightly. Lucas didn’t have a good impression of her and naturally couldn’t be bothered to save her.
“Hah, we’ve dined in the same room after all. Now that a girl is in trouble, you refuse to even step forward. How shameful!”
“Hmph, you’re obviously too scared to save her. You’re worthless!”
“Leila, I’m not being caustic, but look at the way he’s behaving. He’s a coward! To put it bluntly, if something happens to you in the future, he won’t even dare to stand up for you. You’re better off without such a useless boyfriend!”
After Lucas explicitly refused to go save Everleigh with them, Alyssa, Samuel, and the others instantly began mocking Lucas, seemingly having finally found a reason to criticize him.
Leila pursed her lips without saying anything.
