Chapter 4 Apologies

  • Robin looked at her disgusting face and tore the agreement as well as the check. Fragments scattered.
  • Miranda snorted and murmured, “What a stupid proud man! He will regret it soon!”
  • Just then, noises came from the entrance.
  • The crowd split and made way for Harold and Karina.
  • They walked in, led by Mark Huber.
  • Mark looked at Robin, who was in the crowd, and said quietly, “Mr. Huber, Mr. Bruce is here.”
  • Harold’s eyes lit up. He walked fast to Robin.
  • People who laughed at Robin were shocked to see Harold and Karina.
  • “Ms. Huber and Mr. Huber actually came here!”
  • The Brown family cheered up soon and greeted them.
  • Alex ran to Harold excitedly. “Ms. Huber, Mr. Huber, it’s my honor to have you here as my guests!”
  • Miranda bowed to them with a smile too. “Mr. Huber, Ms. Huber, please take a seat!”
  • Harold ignored them with a dark face, walking to Robin.
  • After finding out that Robin was at the party, Mark informed Karina and Harold at once.
  • They came here a while ago.
  • Since Miranda and Robin were talking about their engagement, they didn’t show up.
  • When Robin tore the paper and check, they were relieved.
  • And they knew Robin better.
  • The Brown family didn’t realize Harold’s anger.
  • Harold and Karina’s appearance made them so excited!
  • The Huber family invested a lot of money in a park in the city. The project would begin soon.
  • The Brown family wanted to be part of the project.
  • But the Brown family was not good enough to work with the Huber family.
  • However, Harold and Karina, who were in charge of the project, both came to the party of the Brown family.
  • It meant that the Brown family might have the chance.
  • Over these years, Harold seldom went to parties in Hallcester.
  • And the Brown family’s New Year’s party was not even a top one!
  • Of course, the Huber family wouldn’t come!
  • After all, the Huber family was the biggest family in Hallcester. They were in charge of various projects.
  • Even the mayor of Hallcester respected them.
  • The guests were also excited.
  • It was so exciting to go to the same party with Harold and Karina!
  • These people from other smaller families could brag about it for a long time.
  • “Mr. Huber, it is noisy here. We have boxes on the second floor…” Alex followed Harold and Karina respectfully.
  • Harold snorted, “You have high thresholds. No need! I just came here for someone!”
  • Alex paused, not knowing what he meant.
  • “Mr. Bruce, sorry to bother you!” Harold came to Robin and greeted him.
  • “I came to invite you to my place for a drink.”
  • Robin was surprised and said, “I have no time, and I don’t like drinking.”
  • Then he walked to the door.
  • The Brown family was puzzled.
  • Harold invited Robin to his place?
  • Impossible!
  • Except for Ethen Finley, the major of Hallcester, and Cecilia…
  • No one was treated like this.
  • Did Harold make a mistake?
  • Robin was just a common man who got rejected by the Brown family.
  • How could Harold invite such a common man to his place?
  • To people’s surprise, Robin even said no proudly!
  • They believed that Robin was afraid.
  • “Stop!” After a moment of confusion, Jacob snapped at Robin’s back.
  • “Jerk, how could you talk like that to Mr. Huber?
  • “Kneel and apologize to him! Or I will break your legs!”
  • Robin paused and turned around slowly. “Are you talking to me?”
  • “Damn! So what? Now…” Jacob was disdainful.
  • But before he could finish, Robin stretched out to grab his hair and pressed down.
  • “Bang!”
  • Jacob’s legs shook. He lost his balance and knelt before Robin.
  • His knees hit the ground hard, which made him grit his teeth in pain. His face was twisted.
  • “How dare you hit me? I…” Jacob’s eyes were red. He struggled to stand up.
  • Robin actually embarrassed him in front of the upper class in Hallcester.
  • What was worse, Karina, the woman he liked, was here too!
  • Jacob wanted to kill Robin.
  • “Bam! Bam! Bam!”
  • Before he could continue, Robin slapped him three times. Blood came out of his mouth. “Believe it or not, I can even kill you!”
  • Jacob covered his face and shut up, looking at his half-smile in fear!
  • “Robin, you went too far!” snapped Miranda.
  • “I know you are mad because the engagement was canceled. But what are you doing?
  • “To show how rude you are?
  • “This is all that you low life can do?
  • “Now kneel and apologize to Mr. Walsh!
  • “Then I can ask the Walsh family for mercy to keep you alive. Otherwise…”
  • “What? Heh! He is just a bad guy. So what if Robin hit him?” Karina stepped forward and looked at Miranda coldly.
  • Miranda was shocked. “Ms. Huber, he…he hit Mr. Walsh at our party…”
  • “You mean you took Jacob’s side?” Karina said coldly.
  • “If so, we don’t mind destroying your family too!”
  • Miranda was startled.
  • She didn’t know why Karina would defend Robin!
  • The Brown family and the guests exclaimed.
  • They were puzzled.
  • What was the Huber family doing? They took Robin’s side?
  • Alex said with doubt, “Mr. Huber, Ms. Huber, did you get tricked by this guy?
  • “We just canceled the engagement with him. He is just a low life…”
  • Harold had a dark face. “He is our honored guest! How dare you let Jacob humiliate him? You think we are pushovers?”
  • “Honored guest?” Alex was shocked. His body shook. And he almost fell.
  • Harold was the head of the biggest family in Hallcester.
  • His anger made everyone scared!
  • The guests then noticed his cold eyes.
  • So Harold and Karina didn’t come for the New Year’s party held by the Brown family?
  • Why did they get mad at the Brown family?
  • The Brown family was astonished.
  • What was going on?
  • They didn’t think they had offended the Huber family before. Why was the Huber family so hostile?
  • But Harold and Karina’s warnings made them too scared to doubt it.
  • Harold walked to Robin, pointed at Jacob, who was kneeling, and said coldly, “Mr. Bruce, if you want, I can turn the Brown family and the Walsh family into ashes!”
