Chapter 224

It was at that moment that Phineas felt pure terror.

Who would have thought that the plain old man in front of him was the Executioner?

Why had the Executioner visited them personally?

“How dare you hit me!” His head spinning, Matt pulled himself up and roared“You’re dead! It’s over for all of you! Men, finish them off!”

“Stop!” Phineas yelled before falling to his knees before the old man. He frantically begged. “Sir Albert, we don’t know what we’ve done to incur your wrath, but please forgive us.”

“Have you gone crazy, Dad? Why are you groveling?” Matt was in disbelief. He didn’t understand why his dad was begging the old man for forgiveness when they were on the winning side.

“What do you know, you moron! We can’t afford to mess with them, so hurry up and kneel!” Phineas frantically

signaled Matt.

“I’m not kneeling!” Matt looked around maniacally. “What do you mean we can’t afford to mess with them? There are only three of them. We’ll be able to drown them with just the piss of our men alone!”

“Y–y–you dumbass! Do you have any idea what you’re saying? This is the Executioner we’re talking about!” Phineas‘ face was ashen. In front of the Executioner, they were merely ants waiting to be squashed.

“What executioner? I’ve never even heard of him! He’ll still die today even if he’s God!‘ Matt shouted arrogantly.

Alfred chuckled when he heard that. “InterestingI almost don’t wish to kill you now.”

“You think losers like you can kill me? Arrogant bastards!” Matt sniggered. Last night’s events had twisted him inside, and he yearned to let that hatred out.

“It’s over. Everything’s over.” Phineas collapsed onto the floor, his face pale. Why did he have to have such a stupid son? How could Matt hurl insults at the Executioner?

“You’re trying to compete in numbers? Alright, then. Let’s see who has more men!” The large man waved his arm, and synchronized footsteps were heard immediately.

Soon, armed men charged into the place from all directions, surrounding everyone instantly.

The guards were fully geared up and donned black masks. Their gazes were sharp, and they gave off at murderous aura that made people turn their heads away instinctively from fear.

The Laney family guards were nothing compared to these men.

No words or threats were exchanged, but clangs rang out as the Laney family’s guards, who were terrified by

the new arrivals, threw their weapons down and stood aside.

Matt froze at the sight of the geared men, his haughtiness vanishing rapidly, and terror took its place.

What happened? Where did all those men come from

“Aren’t we competing by numbers? Who has more men now?” The bulky man waved again, and the men drew

their swords in unison, overwhelming everyone with their presence.

Matt felt the strength leave his legs, and he collapsed to the ground.

“Sir Alfred, please go easy on us!” Phineas crawled toward Alfred and begged. “My son has lost his mind and

doesn’t know what he’s doing. Please spare his life!”

“Then, you’ll have to die in his stead.” Alfred drew a sword from the burly man’s back and threw it to the floor.

Calmly, he said. “Only one of you can live. Make your decision.”
