Chapter 464

With Hector and Jacob’s arrangements, all the guests in attendance at the Harmon family gathering gradually

left, and the annual event came to a jarring end.

In order to prevent any other parties from taking advantage of the situation, Hector gave everyone firm

instructions to keep what happened a secret and that under no circumstances was any information to be


When all the guests had left, about 100 of the Harmons stayed back. As part of the Harmon family, they understood that if anything were to happen to the family, they would be similarly implicated, so they were all

in it together.

“We really appreciate your help in finding the culprit, Dustin. Had it not been for you, the Harmon family would have suffered a tremendous loss.” Hector patted Dustin on the shoulder with admiration in his eyesIt was

rare to come by such a fine young man.

“Dad, Dustin saved our entire family. Surely you’re not just thanking him verbally?” Natasha prompted.

“Of course not.” Hector smiled. “Dustin, if there’s anything that you need, just name it. I’ll try my best to fulfill

your wish,”

“If you really mean it, Mr. Harmon, I’d like to request that you annul Natasha’s marriage alliance and let her

have her freedom,” Dustin said earnestly


Hector frowned. A moment later, he shook his head. “I’m really grateful to you for saving my family.

but this is one thing cannot promise you.”

“Why? Is it only because the Grants are able to help you defeat the Dark Lord?” Dustin questioned.

“It’s one thing to defeat the Dark Lord.” Hector sighed and continued helplessly“The marriage alliance had been agreed upon a long time ago. If we suddenly decide to annul it, it would be akin to publicly disgracing the Grant family, and its repercussions would be beyond our imagination!”

There were three prominent families in South City. The Murrays had a military background, and with General Christopher Murray as head of the household, they were highly respected and had the military behind them. The Hill family, on the other hand, had their connections in the martial world. As someone who had been a master of the Balerno martial arts, Paul Hill had a myriad of disciples across the nation. His prestige in the martial world was unrivaled. As for the Grants, they had both military power and connections in the martial world. Their multifaceted development made them the family who thrived and flourished the most out of the three influential families. Their wealth of knowledge, experience, and resources, and how extremely well- informed they were about current affairs because of all their connections made them more formidable than the Dark Lord himself. He amounted to nothing when compared to the powers that the Grant family possessed.

Harmons stood a chance against the Dark Lord, but they were utterly helpless against the Grants. And that just was how things stood with the Harmons now. Annulling the marriage alliance was simply out of the question. They dared not even think about it.

“Say, Mr. Harmon, would it change things if it wasn’t the Harmons who decided to cancel the marriage but the

Grants instead?” Dustin asked cautiously.


“I know you’re holding out hope for that, but chances of that ever happening is about as close to zero.” Hector shook his head. “The reason why the Grants agreed to the marriage alliance was because they were Interested in our family’s potential in the business world so that they can bring their family’s status up to a whole new level with our support in the industry.”

“But would you agree to it if the Grants decided to annul the arrangement?” Dustin probed.

“If it really comes to that, I guess I’ll be forced to agree.” Hector chuckled.

“Dad! Mark your words!” Natasha broke out into a grin when she heard his words. “As long as Tyler Grant decides to annul the marriage arrangement, you must never force me into a marriage again!”

“What do you have in mind?” Hector felt uneasiness coming over him. This daughter of his always had the wildest ideas.

“Don’t you worry about that. All you’ve got to do is remember what you just said.” Natasha did not explain any further

“You” Just as Hector was about to say something, Mrs. Davys came over.

“Mr. Harmon, the Grants are here to visit.” she reported.

“Hurry up and welcome them!” Without wasting any time, he personally went out to welcome them with the rest of the Harmons in tow.

Outside the gates, a large throng of smartly dressed people awaited.
