The Peremptory Casey Davies Chapter 410 If There Was An Afterlife

Recognizing the voice on the other side of the phone, Lucas froze on the spot with complex expression for a long time, as if he was a pause puppet.

“Dad, you… you’re kidding with me, right? Our family at least are the number two in B City. How could we be all washed up ina blink?” Lucas asked again after a while.

“Do you understand the influence of Davies family and Tianyuan Chamber of Commerce? The Holmes family is just a tiny aunt in comparison with them! They wouldn’t even notice our existence even if I spooned our money to them. You are such a good son, just offended both at one time directly. From now on, no bothering coming home and you’re no son to me!”

The call was hung up as soon as the sentence finished in wrath. Lucas stared blankly ahead and didn’t pay attention to his hand, not aware of dropping the phone on the ground.

“The young lady of Tianyuan Chamber of Commerce, the member of Davies family. Isn’t here J City, A rinky-dink little place? Why people in that league would show up here?”

Lucas mumbled to himself, and then turned to look at the way of Scott and Lily, swallowed unconsciously. The man was all taken over by dread.

Crowds of onlookers didn’t surprise at Lucas’s response. For they knew, messing up with Scott was never going to end well.
Though no one knew what exactly Scott had done to Lucas, the result went back clearly.

Next second, Lucas just knelt in great regret before Scott and begging, “Brother Scott, I was wrong, please spare my family. I didn’t mean to hurt somebody, just was not that polite when talking to that lady. I was such an dumbass and please punish me instead, no need to weep my whole family out. It was not easy for the Holmes family to get the place they were at now. Please don’t let that all going down with me!”

The crowd gasped at those words from Lucas and looked towards Scott in shock and in mixed feelings.

All they saw was a call made by Scott, which people didn’t know what he had said, and the next second Lucas knelt before Scott and begging. Until then, the crowd had come to the sense that Scott had just wept out the whole the Holmes family.

“Holy crap, that was unbelievable. Just a call could do that?”

“What… what? That was no kidding ! Was this guy bragging about his ‘glorious’ family background just now? Well, one call by Scott could just destroy a family like that?”

“The Holmes family must be greater than Gray family if it was the case in J City? Scott could do that through one call? That was hot!!”

“No wander Gray family was acting that respectful in front of Scott. He must have an unusual relationship with Davies family.
One call could command Davies family to finish a upper class family in B City—could he be the successor of Davies family?”

People around were in both shock and curiosity, trying to figure out the connection between Scott and Davies family, most of whom believed it was highly possible that Scott was the successor of Davies family.

They would be jaw-dropping if they knew Scott in the flesh was the current Lord of Davies family.

“One chance had already been given to you and sadly you didn’t take it. There was no going back for that. You made your choice and you yourself must bear the responsibility.” Scott answered in cold voice.

For the first few seconds Lucas was still in confuse and couldn’t recall when he had been given the chance. But soon he remembered that he had the chance to say sorry to that girl when Scott just got here.

He felt so regret at the moment, for he realized that things wouldn’t end this way if he made his apology in time.

Lucas almost had breakdown. He admitted that he was a little bossy in his daily life, just as no difference to any other juniors from the noble family in B City. But the whole family being wept out for a few words coming out of mouth, he was the first.

He kept begging with Scott for a while but Scott didn’t pay any of his attention to him. All Scott being thinking about was how to let Lily forgive him, in no mood for Lucas’s grievances.

He walked up to Lily, figuring what to say, wanted to offer his apology appropriately.

“Lily, 1…”

Lily directly picked up a glass of wine from the table and splashed it all towards Scott’s face.
“Who is your Lily, asshole?! Do I know you?!”

Done talking, Lily just walked towards outside.

Scott’s face and clothes were all wet by that. Though it was a little awkward, he didn’t get angry with Lily. At this moment, He wouldn’t get angry no matter what Lily did to him because he deserved it.

The crowd seeing that felt they were watching a TV plot and many of them had token out their phone to record the scene.

Scott right now was like a very normal guy who was wooing Lily but Lily had no feelings for him and splashed wine on him in public.

Scott took a deep breath, didn’t stay behind for long and hurried up to Lily. She was very drunk for the time and it was not safe walking alone on the street.

Conor darted a look at Lucas, who was still kneeling on the ground, and followed with Scott soon.
On the street outside the bar, Lily wobbled along and could fall over at any time.
Scott worried she might get hurt and hurried up to hold her.

Lily pushed him right away and yelled, “Go away! Leave me alone!”

“You may hurt yourself like this.” Scott replied.

“And that is none of your business. Otherwise you would think I was playing weak again. Who cares to play weak in front of you!” Lily shouted.

Scott didn’t know what to say with that for he knew what he said the other day did hurt the feeling of Lily.

‘let me send you home. It is dangerous for you being outside alone. Besides, you’re drunk now and could get sick in the night air.” Scott persuaded.

“Are you my friend? How me getting sick have things to do with you?!” Lily kept walking ahead.

‘Lily, stop. What happened earlier was my fault and I’m sorry. Just let me send you home to get some rest. I promise I’ll make up for you.” Scott stepped forward, grabbed Lily’s clothes and tried to stop a taxi afterwards.

“Making up for me? Okay. If you could come back home with me and holding me in your arm in bed tonight, I’ll forgive you. I promise you I’ll never be mad at you, I’ll never go out alone for drinking, listening to everything you say and love you and only you for the rest of my life.” Lily lifted up her head with tears in both eyes, answered in a sincere voice. It could tell that she really meat it with Scott.

Scott paused, letting go of Lily. Yes, he felt sorry about Lily and wanted to make up for her, but it never would be in that way, for doing so would be like cheating on Edith.

Lily saw the response of Scott and understood his meaning instantly, a trace of disappointment flipped in her eyes, or more specifically, a trace of desperation.

She nodded at Scott but tears in eyes then could no longer be held back. Lily turned around and kept going ahead with two hands holding herself, lonely and frail.

Not going far from the spot, Lily’s body began to lean to one side and then fell on the the way ahead.
Watching that, Scott moved quickly, supported Lily up from the ground and found she had been passed out.

Scott turned to Conor following behind and said, “Get me a taxi.”

Conor soon got a taxi by the side of road. Scott carried Lily to the car and told the driver the address of Lily’s place.
Before long, they arrived at the apartment and Scott carried Lily upstairs, putting her on the bed of her bedroom inside.
Though Lily being faint, her tears wouldn’t stop running and her mouth was also quivering lightly.

“Scott, please don’t leave me. Without you, there is no meaning for me living in this world. I want to be with you. Let me be with you, okay?”

Lily mumbled in her dream. Scott let out a resigned sigh when he realized that was her sleep talking.

“If there was an afterlife, I wish we could meet earlier and I promised I would do so. But in this life, all I could say was I’m sorry.” Scott looking at Lily, said.

In this life, so many things had been settled down with no way to change it. Edith had been all over Scott’s mind and heart.
Things he could do for Lily was only regarding her as his little sister.

After lying in bed for a long time, Lily’ furrowed eyebrows began to unfold, falling into deep sleep.

Knowing Lily was fine by herself, Scott put a glass of water by the bedside and then turned off the light, retreated himself out of the room and left the apartment.

Getting out of the apartment, Scott had Conor arrange someone to keep an eye on the situation and kept him informed once something strange happened to Lily.

With all things covered, Scott went back to his home in CZ Community.
Edith heard the sound of Scott coming back, came out quickly and asked where he had been all day long out home.

Scott permitted himself a wry smile, just said he had ran into some trouble. He didn’t tell Edith the things about Lily as he didn’t want that kind of stuff affected her mood.

Edith didn’t go further with that answer, nodded at Scott and then went to fetch his slippers.

At the moment she turned, Edith showed a flash of disappointment for she had smelt a delicate fragrance on him. That kind of smell only belonged to women but Scott didn’t explain anything.

She knew Scott wouldn’t do anything betrayed themselves, but Scott not mentioning it reflected something was on his mind.

By the night they both went to bed, lying in bed together. Light was out but they both were still awake, staring at the ceiling with different things on mind.

After a while, they both called each other’s name at the same time.
“Scott.”

“Edith.”
