Simon Zimmer and Lilian Yates were both terrified of the top family in South Light, the Yorks.Simon had been beaten up previously in a gambling den, cold sweats were dripping down his body when he recalled about the situation.Then, he kneeled and scolded Harvey York, “Harvey, you filth! Are you trying to kill us all?!“You hurry up and kneel too! Maybe Lord Wayne is a generous man and he’ll forget about it and maybe forgive you…“Lord Wayne, everything is the filth’s fault. You can do whatever you want with him. Please don’t look for me for any trouble!”Lilian had barely woken up in Mandy Zimmer’s arms at that moment. She looked at Harvey while her face was as pale as a ghost.“Bastard, apologize to Lord York right now! We cannot pay for the consequences!“The family is so unfortunate! How did we the Zimmers even get a live-in son-in-law like you?!”Lilian was on the verge of tears.In the next moment, a silhouette covered in bandages while holding a cane barely managed to
“So that’s what’s really going on!“I’ve already heard that the real big characters are all civilized and polite people!”“Yonathan York was already the leader of the Yorks. I heard that he’s regained control of the family yesterday!“A big shot like this wouldn’t care about some speck in his eye!”“His son should come and apologize when he does something wrong!”Simon Zimmer let out a sigh of relief and felt impressed by Yonathan York’s generosity and manners.He then nodded his head and replied, “With this good of a family upbringing. Wayne York will definitely have a promising future!”“Right! It’ll be nice if he could be our son-in-law!” both Simon and Lilian Yates exclaimed.They were already greedy from money and glory. They also loved privileged people with a high status like this.Even though Wayne had done things like that, they still hoped to get closer to him.Mandy Zimmer frowned. She felt that things were not all that simple, but she could not pinpoint the proble
Lilian Yates pointed her finger right at Harvey York’s nose. “Do you even know what being a third-in-command of the province means?”“It means that if he desires it, then the Yates would be the next top class family of South Light!”“A live-in son-in-law like you doesn’t know anything, yet you keep on babbling nonsense!”“I’m warning you, you better watch your mouth when we’re over at the Yates’! If you don’t, I won’t let you off that easily for sure!”Despite the furious look on Lilian’s face, Harvey’s expression didn’t change.Whenever Harvey was with South Light’s first-in-command, the latter would bow to Harvey as Harvey sat before him. On the other hand, South Lights’ second-in-command didn’t even have the courage to face Harvey.How could a mere third-in-command have any worth? At that moment, Xynthia Zimmer appeared to smooth things over and said, “Dad, mom. Brother-in-law may have made a verbal slip-up just now, but he still respects the Yates very much. Right?”Harv
At the same time.Xynthia Zimmer arrived at a well-known antique market in Buckwood.When it comes to the Yates preparing a gift for Grandma Yates, naturally the gift couldn’t be anything ordinary.Xynthia held the card given to her by Mandy, all set to find something meaningful in the market. Not long after, she set her eyes on a pair of porcelain bowls on the cashier desk. She scrutinized them carefully, about to pose a few questions regarding the bowls.Right then, two men walked up from the side.One of them pressed the porcelain bowl Xynthia was scrutinizing. The other said to the front desk worker, “We want these porcelain bowls.”“Hey! Don’t you know the rule of ‘first come first serve’ in a business? Can’t you see that I wanted these first?”Xynthia instantly yelled.The two men turned their heads. They had facial features similar to Americans, but with sleek hair and powdered faces.One of them sized Xynthia up. He spoke English with a foreign accent, “Young lady, t
“You rude girl! You actually slapped me!”The two Country J men became enraged in an instant.They were already used to being arrogant in their own country. No one would dare fight back even if they harassed women. Not once in their life had they ever been slapped by a woman.Slap!In the next moment, one of them retaliated and sent a heavy slap right across Xynthia Zimmer’s face!“You dared to slap me! Do you have a death wish?”“We’re going to file a police report! You’ll have to compensate for our losses!”The other smashed the porcelain bowls into pieces on the floor.Then blamed it all on Xynthia.By now, the situation had worsened. The workers in the antique market came out.A middle-aged man in the lead frowned. “I’m the antique market’s manager, Wallace Shawn. If there’s anything, you can report to me.”Everyone immediately spoke up, “Manager! These men jumped in line and hit the young girl. They even smashed the product and blamed everything on her!”To everyone’
“You’re shameless!”Xynthia Zimmer couldn’t believe her ears. How could this man say such a thing in front of so many people?“It was obvious they harassed me first! I got angry, so I had to defend myself!”“Not only did they hit me and destroy the product, but you’re also asking me to pay it back? You even wanted me to accompany them for a drink! How unreasonable can you be?!”“Ho, ho! You admitted that you hit them first!”“I’ve already asked someone to save the video of you hitting them!”“If you don’t accept our way of mediating the situation, we’ll report everything to the police right away!”“Losing a million dollars is enough to get you jailed for a long time!” Wallace threatened intimidatingly.Xynthia was dumbfounded.Although she could be a bit savage at times, she was still a student. When had she ever faced a situation like this all by herself?She couldn’t believe that this man, Wallace Shawn, would act so harshly towards his own fellow citizens.Was it all ju
When Xynthia Zimmer recited the whole story to Harvey York, his face instantly darkened by a few shades.Before Harvey could speak, however, Wallace Shawn cut him with a sneer. “Yo, you’re calling your parents over now?”“I’m telling you! Don’t even think about ending this matter today like this!”“Tell those two Country J men to get their asses out of here!”Harvey spat coldly.“Your kid doesn’t know how to respect people and you don’t, too?”“They’re honourable guests from another country!” Wallace yelled furiously. “What are you trying to pull by calling them something like the Country J men?” Harvey replied coolly, “They could only be referred to as foreign guests if they visit here with kindness. I’m already giving them face by merely calling trash like them that.”“I’m giving you three seconds. Make them crawl out here and apologize!”“Are you insane?! You want our honourable guests to crawl over here and apologize? Do you have any idea where you are?”Wallace howled.
Harvey York casually pushed Wallace Shawn away. He then kicked open the door of the VIP lounge. His eyes fell on the two preening Country J men, and he said coldly, “Were you the ones who hit her and smashed the bowls? Not only that, you even asked Xynthia to accompany you drinking?”The two Country J men stood up abruptly at seeing Harvey.“Yeah, that’s us. So what? Does scum like you want payback?”These two Country J men did not speak fluent English, but they glared at Harvey with eyes that were full of disdain.Apparently, they felt superior.“Kneel and apologize.” Harvey ordered. “I can spare you only once.” “Apologize? Impossible!”“We are distinguished guests. How can we apologize to the inferior?”“But you, you can kneel and apologize to us instead!”These two Country J men were very arrogant. They certainly didn’t have Harvey and Xynthia in their sights at the moment.In their opinion, these two inferiors were not qualified to talk to them.“Where’s the security? W
