The Formidable Son-In-Law: The Charismatic Lucas Gray - Chapter 625
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Vince’s cold words, coupled with the piercing and distorted killing intent on his face, immediately made both Wendy and Lance subconsciously shudder.
In particular, Lance wasn’t as vicious and scheming as Wendy, so his heart was pounding wildly at the moment.
If Vince knew that his son Roy hadn’t been killed by Lucas but had died in the Kingston residence, he probably wouldn’t spare the Kingstons even if they weren’t the ones who killed Roy.
He carefully looked at Wendy, who was still as calm as usual, before secretly gulping and forcing himself to calm down.
No matter what, since things had already developed to this point, he and Wendy were already on the same boat. Even if the truth came to light, he would have Wendy to take the blame. As long as he controlled his facial expressions well and avoided arousing suspicion, Roy’s incident would probably remain a secret forever.
At this moment, Wendy was secretly sizing up the two bodyguards behind Vince, whom she had previously met at the Smith residence. They were elite experts that were in no way inferior to Master Eli.
After all, Wendy was already married, while Vince was a rightful successor who held true power and authority in the Smith family. The experts he brought were naturally the elites of the elites.
“Vince, since you’ve brought your people here, should we head to Orange County immediately to capture that punk Lucas Gray to avenge Roy?” Wendy asked.
Vince didn’t answer her directly and instead confirmed again, “You said that Master Eli escorted Roy to Orange County, but they both ended up being killed by Lucas Gray, right?”
“Yes!” Wendy nodded and pretended to be angry and grief-stricken. She said slowly, “Master Eli has been with me for so many years, and he was my most skilled bodyguard. That’s why I sent him to protect Roy so that he wouldn’t be bullied by others, But I never thought that Lucas Gray would be so powerful. Even Master Eli was no match for him and instead even died in his hands…”
She raised her hand to wipe her tears, seemingly extremely miserable about this matter.
Lance also hurriedly took the opportunity to say, “Mr. Smith, Lucas Gray is indeed quite evil, and his martial arts skills are incredible. Moreover, he isn’t alone and has other experts following him. In short, he’s very difficult to deal with!
“Moreover, although he was abandoned by the Huttons, for some reason, they handed the Orange County branch of the Stardust Corporation to him to manage. So he does hold some power. Apart from a few top wealthy families in LA and Orange County, even the Coles, who are on par with us in the state, have gathered around Lucas Gray. He’s really very difficult to deal with!
“Previously, the Kingstons also suffered heavy losses and lost several top experts in order to deal with him. Even my son and grandson were both killed by Lucas Gray!”
Toward the end, Lance gnashed his teeth and did his best to show that his desire to take revenge against Lucas was as strong as Vince’s in hopes that they could become closer.
Indeed, after hearing Lance’s words, Vince looked at him, an old man of nearly seventy years old, for the first time. He asked with raised brows, “You are?”
Previously, Lance had greeted him, but Vince didn’t notice him at all.
Wendy quickly introduced, “Vince, this is Lance Kingston, the head of the Kingstons, one of the top three wealthiest families in California.”
Lance hurriedly bowed and said respectfully, “Mr. Smith, you can just address me as Lance!”
“The three top families in California…” Vince glanced at Lance and suddenly smiled. “It seems that it’s quite coincidental. I’m here in San Francisco this time to avenge my son and also to do something important.”
Hearing this, Lance immediately understood that the matter Vince wanted to do was probably related to him. Overjoyed, he frantically said, “Mr. Smith, our family has been in San Francisco for nearly three decades, and we have a significant status here. Please feel free to tell me any requests you may have! We will definitely try our best to help you fulfill them!”
“Something important?” Wendy pondered. As far as she knew, she had never heard of the Smiths having anything to do in California. Otherwise, the Smiths might have long found out about the matters between her and Moses. It seems that this matter was likely decided by the Smiths or Vince recently.
Vince didn’t keep him in suspense. He said straightforwardly, “I want to make all of California become the Smiths’ turf!”
His words were decisive and full of a domineering aura.
Wendy widened her eyes in surprise, but she soon calmed down.
Although this matter was beyond her expectation, it wasn’t that shocking.
After all, the Smiths had already become one of the eight most powerful families in DC many years ago and had been expanding their power in recent years. Although their goal of taking over all of California did sound a little too ambitious, it was still possible to achieve it if they did their best.
Moreover, as long as Vince could successfully take over California, he would probably become the next successor.
But what Vince said made Lance immediately widen his eyes in shock!
The Smiths didn’t only want to dominate San Francisco but all of California!
It was a terrifying goal!
Although he had always known that the Smiths were one of the eight most powerful families in DC, the Smiths’ scope of influence had always only been in DC and the surrounding areas. But now, they wanted to take over all of the economically prosperous California. Their ambition was far beyond Lance’s imagination!
Of course, Lance’s family was only one of the three great families of San Francisco, and he hadn’t been able to unify the city, let alone the state.
In this instant, he strongly felt the great difference between him and a main member of the Smith family.
At the same time, a wave of excitement and exhilaration surged in his heart.
Since Vince could reveal his plan directly in front of him, he clearly wanted to use the power of the Kingstons.
After all, in order to take control of all the forces in California, the Smiths couldn’t possibly send people to take over everything everywhere. The easiest method with the least hassle was to select a few large families in California and make them the Smiths’ representatives to control all of California.
And as one of the top three top families in California, getting an opportunity to work with the Smiths was simply a godsend opportunity!
As long as he could seize the opportunity and obtain the trust of the Smiths to become a representative, the Kingstons would have a powerful backer to rely on and soar to greater heights soon!
The thought of that scene made Lance look incredibly excited.
After thinking about it, he smiled fawningly at Vince. “Mr.. Smith, since you want to take revenge and take over all of California, I have a good plan to help you quickly achieve both goals at the same time!”
