- Chapter 864 - Seeing Is Believing
Tyson had been the Smiths’ helmsman for so many years, so he really couldn’t possibly be useless. He knew very well that there is no free lunch in this world, especially since he was now facing Lucas, someone who was the Smiths’ enemy. Lucas couldn’t possibly help him unconditionally.
Therefore, Lucas definitely had his own agenda.
Lucas didn’t hide it. “That’s right. I can return Charlie to you and make your son return to normal. I can even help you resolve some of the Smiths’ troubles so that you can take control of the Smiths with stability.
“But the condition is that from now on, the Smiths must follow my orders, be loyal to me, and serve me as your master!”
“What did you say?!” Tyson’s instantly expression changed immediately.
He hollered furiously, “You actually want my family to pledge allegiance to you? You’re way too ambitious!
“I don’t know what you will do after gaining control of the Smiths, but I definitely won’t sell out the interests of my family for my own!
“Don’t even think about it!”
Tyson rejected almost immediately.
Lucas had already guessed Tyson’s reaction, so he wasn’t the least bit angry or surprised. Instead, he said indifferently, “Don’t forget that you still have a brother, Thomas, who’s desperately trying to become the helmsman at every turn. If you’re not willing to, I can go look for him. As long as I promise to let him become the helmsman, I believe that Thomas will be very happy to agree to my condition.”
“Impossible!” Tyson sneered. He said with great certainty, “Although Thomas is indeed going against me at every turn and wants to seize the position of helmsman from me, he’s a descendant of the Smiths after all. He won’t betray us for his own benefit!”
Lucas smiled ambiguously. “What makes you so sure? That’s just your guess.
“I believe you’re aware of how badly Thomas wants to become the Smiths’ helmsman. If I promised to give him the position of helmsman, he would definitely agree to kill all the Smiths’ descendants on your side as long as I tell him to, what more pledge allegiance to me.
“Do you believe it or not?”
Hearing this, Tyson shook his head firmly. “That’s impossible! He would never agree to do that!
“Although we’ve had many fights between us, and we’re almost to the point of falling out, no matter what, we’re both members of the Smith family. We’re cousins, and we grew up together for decades. How could he possibly kill me and all the direct descendants on my side?
“It’s absolutely impossible!”
Tyson spoke loudly, as if he was trying to convince Lucas to believe him. But in Lucas’s opinion, Tyson was actually aware of the truth. He just refused to believe it himself, so he raised his voice to deny it. In fact, he was just trying to convince himself to believe it.
“Is that so? In this case, why don’t we verify it?!”
Lucas knew that Tyson was only hypnotizing himself and trying to convince himself not to believe it, but how would he react if the cruel truth was presented to him?
So after speaking, Lucas took out his phone and made a call.
Soon, the call was answered.
Lucas said directly, “Call Thomas immediately and tell him to contact me if he still wants the position of the Smiths’ helmsman!”
With that, Lucas hung up.
Next to him, Tyson was visibly upset. But Lucas was in a much stronger position than him now, so there was nothing he could do to Lucas.
But Tyson was very unimpressed with the phone call Lucas just made.
“Lucas Gray, I’m afraid you still don’t know what kind of person Thomas is, right? He’s far more arrogant and scheming than I am. He won’t be persuaded easily!
“Unless you can give him enough assurance to make him believe that you can really help him become the family helmsman, he won’t believe you or even bother paying attention to you!
“There’s no way he’d agree to what you said! The Smiths can cooperate with you now and even provide you with some conveniences in various aspects, but it’s impossible for me to pledge allegiance to you and obey your orders!
“I will not agree to this condition, and neither will Thomas!” Tyson said through gritted teeth.
But just as Tyson finished speaking, Lucas’s phone suddenly rang.
Lucas glanced at the string of unfamiliar numbers on his phone before smiling at Tyson ambiguously. “Previously, someone told me that the reason you could become the helmsman of the Smiths was that you had Charlie to support you. Now, it seems that this is indeed the case!
“It’s indeed very rare for someone as naive as you to be able to become the Smiths’ helmsman.”
He stopped observing Tyson’s reaction, picked up the phone, pressed the answer button, and turned on the speakerphone.
Soon, a voice that was extremely familiar to Tyson came from the other end.
“Mr. Gray, this is Thomas Smith. Someone called me just now and informed me that you’d like to discuss something with me. Is that right?”
Tyson’s face immediately stiffened.
The voice indeed belonged to Thomas. Having been family for decades, how could he not recognize his voice?
However, Thomas was not only extremely polite when speaking to Lucas, but he even sounded a bit deferential.
His tone of voice was extremely unfamiliar to Tyson.
Moreover, Tyson just told Lucas that Thomas was extremely scheming and would never speak with Lucas. In the end, Thomas had not only responded, but he answered the call very quickly and even spoke in a respectful and deferential tone.
This was like a slap in Tyson’s face that made him feel an intense, hot, and burning pain.
Lucas merely glanced at Tyson before saying into the phone, “Thomas, haven’t you always wanted to become the Smiths’ helmsman?
“Now, I’ll give you a chance. As long as you kill Tyson and the direct descendants in his camp, I’ll help you become the helmsman!
“But the condition is that after you become the helmsman, I want the Smiths to pledge allegiance to me!
“How are you going to choose?”
Lucas stated his intentions succinctly and gave the right of choice to Thomas.
