The Formidable Son-In-Law: The Charismatic Lucas Gray-Chapter 1199 - 1199 Not Saving His Pride
1199 Not Saving His Pride
Seeing the people in the private room besieging Lucas overbearingly, Ashley was almost panicking to the point of tears.
She knew that if not for the sake of helping her, Lucas wouldn’t have gotten involved in this matter at all, let alone be besieged by these people to force him to apologize.
Besides, Lucas was right. Why should he apologize to Peter?
At this moment, almost everyone in the private room was on Peter and Vanessa’s side. Only Allie, Ashley’s close friend, seemed anxious as she looked at Ashley and Lucas worriedly.
In fact, she had always wanted to help Ashley on account that they used to be close friends.
While Lucas and Ashley were being verbally mobbed, Allie gritted her teeth and said, “Okay, everyone, let’s stop. Ashley is already miserable enough. We were classmates after all. Do you don’t have to be so ruthless to her?”
Then Allie persuaded Ashley again, “Ashley, don’t let this bother you anymore. No matter who was at fault, don’t bring up the past again. After all, you two have already started new lives. Just let it go, okay?”
Ashley glanced at Allie. Now, the only person still willing to speak to her was Allie.
“Okay, I can take it that nothing has happened before and that I’ve never come to this private room or heard those things they’ve said. But what about them? Are they willing to let us off?”
Ashley glanced at the faces of her former classmates one by one.
Actually, some of them had been quite close to Ashley, while others were only casual acquaintances with her.
But now, Ashley felt that these people were strangers and their expressions were revolting.
Ashley believed that once she left this private room, she would never have any contact with these people again.
It was only human instinct to gravitate toward profits and avoid trouble, but Ashley was amazed by how ruthless and snobbish they were.
Hearing Ashley’s tone become mellower, Allie persuaded the others in the room, “Okay, we all used to be classmates. You don’t have to be so fierce to Ashley. ƒ𝘳𝗲𝑒𝒘𝐞𝚋𝚗𝐨v𝘦l.𝒄o𝐦
“Maybe there was indeed some misunderstanding in between. But the matters between Ashley and Peter are all in the past, and it has nothing to do with us. So why don’t we let Ashley and Lucas leave while we stay here and catch up?”
Allie smiled and spoke as gently as possible to try her best to mediate the conflict.
Unfortunately, her efforts were futile.
Vanessa glanced at her, rolled her eyes in disdain, and snapped angrily, “Who do you think you are? Do you think you’re qualified to get us to let them off?
“As far as I know, you’re just from an ordinary family. If it wasn’t because you and Peter were classmates, you wouldn’t even be qualified to be here and speak to me! You’d better wake up and consider what you’re worth before thinking of interfering in this matter!”
The smile on Allie’s face instantly stiffened.
“Haha!” Zoey glanced at Allie contemptuously. “Allie, I know you used to be close to Ashley. That’s why you’ve been speaking up for her, but so what? Even Ashley isn’t qualified to interfere now, let alone you! You’d better be more self-aware!”
Carrie also gave Allie a disdainful look. “Hah, some people are probably still living in the past, thinking that they’re best friends with a wealthy heiress. Why don’t you consider the situation now? Who are you to spout nonsense here?
“There’s barely any difference between you and that shameless bitch Ashley. Stop treating yourself as important!”
The unrestrained mockery of her former classmates made Allie turn pale and stunned speechless.
She never thought that she would face such hostile ridicule for trying to be the peacemaker and stop them from targeting Ashley and Lucas.
Their mean comments made Ashley almost burst into tears.
Not wanting to bother with Allie, Silas immediately pointed his finger at Lucas and smiled smugly. “Punk, you don’t want to apologize, huh? I’m telling you. This is Club Aurora, and the big shot behind it is my father’s close friend!
“If you don’t apologize to Peter immediately, I won’t let you off! Do you believe that as long as I say the word, I can make sure you can’t step out of Club Aurora?”
Lucas glanced at Silas’s conceited face and sneered. “Are you sure the big shot behind Club Aurora is your father’s close friend?” 𝒇𝔯e𝚎𝘄𝑒𝑏𝙣𝑜𝚟𝗲𝑙.c𝘰𝚖
Silas immediately felt a little diffident because he knew best whether he had made it up or not.
But since he had already said it, he couldn’t back down now. Looking offended, he put on a stern face and hollered furiously, “What nonsense are you saying? The manager of Club Aurora personally invited me to the one and only King’s Room here. He also gave us two bottles of expensive red wine on my father’s account. Are you blind? Didn’t you see it?
“Hmph, a loser like you has no right to question the identity of my father’s friend.”
Lucas said coldly, “Just now, people here said that someone overestimated their importance, but when it comes to overestimating their importance, I’m afraid no one here can compare to you.”
“The manager said Mr. Gray. Other than you, don’t forget that my last name is Gray too!”
As soon as Lucas said this, everyone in the room was stunned, but they soon realized what he meant.
Many people started laughing outright.
Silas raised his head and guffawed endlessly. “Hahaha! What a joke. Are you saying the Mr. Gray that Mr. Frey addressed earlier wasn’t me but you, a penniless loser?
“Haha, this is hilarious! Mr. Frey said that the King’s Room of Club Aurora is reserved for the most distinguished guests of the club. You’re far from that.
“Your outfit is probably worth less than a hundred dollars. You can’t even afford the cheapest dish here. How dare you say that you’re the most distinguished guest Mr. Frey addressed? I’ve never heard anything more ridiculous than this!”
Seeing Silas laugh hysterically, Lucas looked at him like he was looking at an idiot.
Lucas said coldly, “Yeah, Mr. Frey was indeed addressing me. You just assumed my identity, but I couldn’t be bothered to correct you. I just didn’t expect that you wouldn’t know when enough is enough. Instead, you pushed your limits even further. In that case, there’s no need for me to save your pride!”
