After saying that, Dominic and Bryce both looked over at this family member.
This Carter hurriedly said, “Think about it. They were still part of the family when they received those gifts, so the gifts can’t be considered as their family’s private assets! Besides, you were kind to have provided for them for decades, so it’s only right for them to show filial piety.”
After figuring out something, Bryce patted his thigh and exclaimed with excitement, “Yes! Those gifts should belong to us. I’ll go get them back from them now!” Please visit fr𝐞𝐞wn.𝒸o𝔪 website to read fastest update
Dominic nodded in satisfaction. “If they really become in-laws with the Sawyers, I can let them return to the family as long as they hand over those gifts.”
Bryce recalled how smug Karen looked yesterday and hesitated for a moment. “Grandpa, what if they don’t agree?”
“Hmph, if they don’t agree, we’ll make them return everything they obtained from the Carters over the years! Perhaps that box of gifts may not be enough to offset all of it. Tell them that clearly.” Dominic smirked.
“Yes, Grandpa. I know what to do.” Bryce left excitedly.
Bright early the next morning in Cheyenne’s home…

William and the others were still having breakfast when Bryce walked in with a group of people, pushed open the courtyard door, and sauntered in.
“Oh, all of you happen to be at home, huh?” Bryce smiled roguishly.
Cheyenne patted the frightened Amelia and stared at these people who barged in with disgust in her eyes.
When Karen and Charlotte saw Bryce, they were both furious as well. “What are you doing here?”
Bryce walked to the middle of the courtyard brazenly. “What am I doing here? If I remember correctly, the house that you are staying in now still belongs to the Carters. What right do you have to question me?”
“So, are you here to chase us away?” Charlotte asked.
Both Karen’s and William’s faces were sullen.
Previously, Dominic had already openly driven them out of the Carter family and even disowned them. Now that Bryce was here, they reckoned that he must be here to confiscate their house.
Bryce stared at William and Karen. “Well, Uncle, you grew up with the Carters, and I’ve been addressing you as my uncle for so many years. No matter what, I still care for you. How can I really chase you out?”
William and Karen were shocked by his words. Although kinship was ridiculous to them, Bryce seemed to be saying that he wasn’t here to chase them out.
“What do you mean?” Cheyenne asked warily. She didn’t believe that Bryce and Dominic would care about kinship.
Besides, given Bryce’s hostile attitude toward her in the past, he obviously couldn’t wait to drive her out of the Carter family. How could he come here to say this to them after disowning them?

“What I mean is, Grandpa has decided to rescind his orders on the account that you guys have lived with us for so many years. As long as you give us the gifts from the Sawyers, Grandpa will allow you back into the Carter family,” Bryce said arrogantly.
“Hmph!” Cheyenne sneered. So it’s just for the gifts.
“Don’t even think about it! How can we give the gifts to you?” Karen was instantly anxious.
Staring at her, Bryce said slowly, “Aunt Karen, isn’t that what you told me last night? You said that the Sawyers have taken a liking to Charlotte and gave you a large chest of title deeds, a car, cash, and stores. You’re going to become the Sawyers’ in-laws soon. Surely you don’t care about that petty sum of money? As long as you hand these things over, Grandpa and I will let you return to the Carter family!”
When she saw Bryce and Dominic at the banquet last night, she couldn’t help herself and showed off to them. In the end, she found out that it was a huge misunderstanding. Now, she couldn’t tell Bryce that she had made a mistake, but she wasn’t willing to give the expensive gifts to the Carters.
At this moment, Charlotte walked out. “That was a mistake. The Sawyers gave those gifts to Lucas, not us.”
Bryce burst into laughter and gibed, “Charlotte Carter, do you take me for a fool? Lucas Gray? He’s just a piece of trash. How could the Sawyers give him those gifts out of gratitude? You ought to come up with a less retarded excuse.”
“Those things really don’t belong to us. Don’t think about taking them from us. Since we’ve been disowned, you can take this house back, and we’ll move away. That’s all I have to say,” Cheyenne said coldly.
“Cheyenne, how can you say that?” Karen was displeased, as she couldn’t understand why they had to give the house to them. Since they had lived here for decades, the house should have long belonged to them.
“Hmph, do you think you can just move away? It’s not that easy!” Bryce dropped the pretense and showed his true intentions. He exclaimed fiercely, “I’m not afraid of letting you know. If you really want to leave the Carters, return us all the money we’ve spent providing for you all these years!
“I’ll do a simple calculation for you. William Carter, you have been living with us for more than forty years. We’ll take it that you spend fifteen thousand dollars a year. That means you’ve spent six hundred thousand in total.” Bryce pointed at William.
Before William could speak, he pointed at the others. “And you, Karen, Cheyenne, and Charlotte, all of you have been sponging off us for two to three decades. The three of you have spent up to one-point-four million in total. You’ve also taken away at least five million worth of dividends and benefits from us, and you’ve lived in this house for decades. Considering all the miscellaneous expenses, it won’t be much to ask you for eight million, right?”
Every word Bryce said made William’s and Karen’s faces turn even more distressed. When she heard Bryce’s last sentence, Karen could no longer hold back and screamed, “Eight million dollars?! Is this daylight robbery?! How could we have spent eight million dollars?! Besides, we only get a little more than twenty thousand in dividends!”
Bryce laughed unrestrainedly. “Don’t say I’m making this up. These things are recorded in the company’s accounts every year!
“Anyway, you either pay us eight million dollars now and leave the Carter family, or take out that box of gifts and we’ll let you back in the family. In the future, Grandpa might let Uncle William take over his position. You guys should consider carefully what you want to do!”
