The Formidable Son-In-Law: The Charismatic Lucas Gray - Chapter 619
“What?!” After hearing this news, Roy was so shocked that he instantly sprung up and didn’t even notice that he had dropped the teacup next to him onto the floor.
The subordinate who called him was the very same bodyguard that he had left behind in Orange County to investigate Lucas.
He was in charge of investigating Lucas in Orange County, so he naturally saw the fight between Lucas and Eli, which had ended in less than a minute.
But he didn’t get close to the alley, and by the time he rushed over to the vicinity, Eli had already been kicked to the ground by Lucas’s leg whip.
This bodyguard was so frightened that he shivered and immediately went to hide. Only after Lucas left did he dare to go over. He then saw Eli’s serious injuries and crippled limbs.
“Mr. Smith, Master Eli’s limbs have been broken by Lucas Gray, and he’s lying beside me! I’m not very clear about the details. Should I send Master Eli back now and let him talk to you personally?!” the bodyguard said fearfully.
“Duh? What are you waiting for? Send Master Eli back immediately! Right now!” Roy hollered at the top of his voice before hanging up.
At the side, Wendy vaguely heard something and had shock written all over her face. “Roy, you just received a call? What’s the matter? Did something happen to Master Eli?”
Roy hurriedly said, “Yes, Aunt Wendy, My subordinate in Orange County called to say that Master Eli lost the fight with Lucas Gray and even had his limbs broken. We’ll only know the details of the situation after Master Eli is brought back to us!”
Wendy had disbelief all over her face.
Even Lance looked horrified, and he sprung up and blurted, “How is that possible?”
If he hadn’t witnessed Eli’s martial arts skills personally, he might have been indifferent about it.
But the incredible power that Eli had displayed earlier was enough to suppress the Kingstons’ strongest expert and beat him to the ground. Yet he ended up having his limbs broken by Lucas. That… is too terrifying.
Could Lucas Gray’s strength have really reached that terrifying degree?
“No matter what, we have to ask Master Eli to rush back so we can hear what he actually says!” Wendy gritted her teeth.
Waiting was always the most arduous thing ever. In the next half hour or so, Wendy, Roy, and Lance were all very restless.
When the Kingstons’ butler came to report that Roy’s bodyguard had returned with the injured Eli, the few of them went all out and rushed to the villa entrance without any regard for their status.
When they saw with their own eyes Eli’s crushed wrist and ankle bones, as well as his weak and wretched appearance, they couldn’t help inhaling sharply.
“Master Eli, what on earth happened? Quickly tell us. How exactly did Lucas Gray beat you up to this state?” Roy asked anxiously.
While drenched in cold sweat, Eli endured the tremendous pain coming from his body and replied, “We… underestimated Lucas Gray. He is by no means an ordinary expert. He’s so fast that even I… I didn’t see how he actually moved. He kicked me in the waist and caused me to be so severely injured that I… I can’t even get up.
“He… he isn’t easy to deal with, and he strikes ruthlessly without mercy. If you can, I suggest that you don’t mess with him. Otherwise, you will definitely get into huge trouble!” he said ashamedly while feeling extremely guilty and fearful of Lucas’s unpredictable combat skills.
Roy inhaled sharply and immediately recalled the scene of himself getting choked by Lucas and almost suffocating to death in Orange County today.
A sudden chill instantly surged from the bottom of his feet straight to the top of his head.
“Aunt Wendy, it seems Lucas Gray is indeed very difficult to deal with! Master Eli is already a top expert of our family and the strongest one around us now. Even he got beaten up into a pulp by Lucas, so wouldn’t we be… seeking death if we provoked him now? Aunt Wendy, we’d better get out of here and go back to DC! In case Lucas Gray comes over, we won’t be able to deal with him at all!” Roy was now truly terrified of Lucas.
Even Eli wasn’t a match for Lucas, and he only had two incompetent bodyguards remaining, who didn’t even dare to breathe in front of Lucas. It made him extremely insecure, for fear that Lucas would suddenly appear in the Kingston residence to choke him to death again.
Roy belonged to one of the eight top families of DC and grew up in the lap of luxury. He had almost never even suffered a minor wound in the nearly three decades of his life. But this time, he was nearly strangled to death by a man of his age. He didn’t want to ever feel the horror of a near-death experience again!
Wendy frowned and remained silent with a sullen expression on her face. The fact that she was gritting her teeth was enough to show that she was in a terrible mood at the moment.
But Roy didn’t notice it and wished he could run to her and shout into her ears, “Aunt Wendy, why are you still hesitating? We’d better leave right now while we can! In case Lucas Gray comes here, we’ll be dead meat!”
“Shut up!” Wendy was furious and raised her hand to slap Roy on the face.
The loud slap and the numbing pain coming from Roy’s face immediately made his body freeze. But at the same time, he recovered from the fear of being on the verge of collapse.
“… Aunt Wendy, what are we going to do now? We can’t continue to just stay here, can we? We don’t have enough people around us, and the Kingstons don’t have any experts who can provide protection…” Roy asked cautiously, covering his face while glowering indignantly at Lance.
Lance felt very maligned. Am I to blame for the fact that the Kingstons can’t find an expert who can rival Lucas Gray? Didn’t you Smiths praise Eli to no end? Yet he ended up having all his limbs broken, didn’t he?
At the same time, Lance was also rather worried despite the criticism.
If Lucas knew that the Kingstons and Wendy were the ones who had sent Eli, maybe he would barge into the Kingstons’ again to fight.
Among the several people present, Wendy seemed to be the most composed.
She took a deep breath and said, “Since Lucas Gray only crippled Master Eli’s limbs but didn’t kill him, I think he should just want to warn us and doesn’t intend to drive us to death.”
Eli hurriedly said, “Yes, I think so. Lucas Gray also asked me… to relay a message to you. He said… he said that Moses and Marc Kingston both died from suicide, which they brought upon themselves. If you must take revenge against him, he won’t be polite to us!”
“Hmph, as expected, Lucas Gray is warning us!” Wendy gritted her teeth.
The Smiths had always been the ones to threaten others and never the other way around. Yet they were now being threatened by a young man in his twenties. It was a blatant insult!
Lucas had even dared to say that her ex-husband and son had brought their deaths upon themselves. This was simply unforgivable!
