Chapter 278 What Are You Talking About
Reginald’s warning wasn’t slow.
However, Bryn, influenced by the silver needle hidden weapon, lost focus for three seconds. When he regained his senses, he was still sluggish. He only managed to react when Finnegan approached by trying to fire his gun.
However, it was already too late.
As the sword swung across the air, Bryn screamed in agony. His right hand was severed from the wrist by Finnegan, and along with the gun, it dropped to the ground.
In the next moment, Finnegan’s blade turned, abruptly ending Bryn’s screams.
A bloodstain slowly appeared at his throat. His eyes bulged as he toppled backward, dead with his eyes
Reginald and the elite members led by Bryn exclaimed simultaneously.
Over a dozen Sable family elites left Doom Star behind and rushed toward Finnegan, ready to avenge Bryn.
Finnegan turned and said, “Go help Bennett.”
Hearing this, Doom Star halted his charge and moved to assist Bennett in dealing with the remaining Sable family elites.
A dozen individuals approached Finnegan, launching a coordinated attack as if attempting to dismember him and scatter his remains.
Finnegan merely lifted his gaze.
With a wild roar, he swung his long sword.
The continuous clanging sounds echoed as Finnegan severed more than a dozen attacking blades. He also slit their hands, causing them to involuntarily release their weapons and clutch their hands in pain.
With a flash of ruthlessness in his eyes, Finnegan raised the coiled long sword to continue the fight, mercilessly harvesting the lives of the Sable family elites who had lost their weapons.
Watching them fall one by one, Reginald, who had cultivated a steady mindset for over seventy years, finally couldn’t maintain his composure.
Trembling, he shook his head incessantly. “No, this can’t be it. This can’t happen.”
Something occurred to him as he caught hold of Mike’s hand. “Didn’t you have a good relationship with Tyrone? Quickly call him for help. As long as we survive this crisis, I’ll give him ten billion… no, fifty billion!”
With a mournful face, Mike responded, “Dad, have you forgotten that the signal is blocked? Besides, Mr. Calandrino is affiliated with the Wahlstrom family. How could he possibly assist us against Finnegan who has the Wahlstrom family’s support?”
Reginald was plunged into deeper despair.
His legs gave way, and he sat down on the ground. “Why is this happening? Why?”
He couldn’t accept that the Sable family was being oppressed to this extent by Finnegan, who came from a humble background.
He couldn’t accept the ingratitude of Bennett, who had turned against them.
Above all, he couldn’t accept that the Sable family, facing Finnegan’s overwhelming pressure, was utterly powerless to resist.
Mike, equally powerless, sat down beside his father. “It’s all because of Liam’s mistake. If he hadn’t coveted Bernice, our family wouldn’t be in this situation.”.
“Are you suggesting that you are innocent?”
At this point, Finnegan had finished off the group of elites who had approached him, and the others dared not intervene.
Reginald raised his head, his gaze dejected, “Isn’t that the case?”
Finnegan discarded the already broken long knife, saying, “Spare the rod, spoil the child! While Liam is indeed the root cause of everything, without your indulgence and tacit approval, how could he repeatedly, target me, deepening the conflict between me and the Sable family? So, you are not innocent; you bear responsibility for everything that has befallen the Sable family today! And it was you and your son who conspired with Bishop to frame Bernice using A Thousand Dreams. At that time, Liam was unaware, right?”
Mike suddenly looked up. “How do you know?”
It was Reginald who looked at Bennett still fighting the others and asked, “Did he tell you that I once asked him for A Thousand Dreams?”
“I’m the one who told Mr. Larkin!”
Before Finnegan could respond, Hailey, who had just fainted briefly due to lack of oxygen, walked out. She no longer hid herself and stood beside Finnegan.
Startled, Mike roared, “Hailey, are you with Finnegan?”
Reginald, however, seemed to figure something out and sighed sadly, “I was curious from the beginning. When Liam dealt with you, it seemed like he turned a blind eye, unable to find many things that could be found. It turns out you had already bought off Hailey! If I’m not mistaken, you just had her deliberately pass information, making me concentrate the elite forces of the Sable family to be wiped out, right?”
Finnegan gave Hailey a somewhat frustrated glance.
How is this woman still alive?
With a sigh of regret, Finnegan said, “It’s no surprise that you’re the one who established Regi Group and made it the leading company in Nuthana’s medical industry. Your mind is sharp!”
Reginald smiled bitterly “But I realized it too late. Otherwise, would I let her ruin the Sable family step by step?”
Hailey snorted, “Blame Liam and yourselves for being heartless and ruthless, sacrificing anyone for your profits!”
Speaking of which, she cast a scornful glance at the now naked and unrecognizable Mike.
Finnegan motioned for Hailey to step aside as he didn’t want to waste time. “Where is the sniper? Tell me, and the males under ten years old in the Sable family can survive. Otherwise, all thirty-six members of the Sable family, including your daughter-in-law and granddaughter overseas, will be wiped out!”
Without the Great Monad Stone, he would be dead by now.
So, Finnegan not only wanted to annihilate the entire Sable family but also to eliminate the sniper, as that person was the one who truly killed him!
But upon hearing this, Reginald was taken aback. “What did you say?”
Finnegan’s expression turned slightly cold. “Are you still playing dumb with me at this point? Or are you trying to bring about the destruction of the entire Sable family?”
The ongoing battle was nearing its end. Bennett withdrew from the fight and walked over, “Old Mr. Sable, just reveal the identity of the sniper. At least, your descendants will get to survive.”
Reginald looked bewildered as he said, “What sniper? I really don’t know what you’re talking about!”
Finnegan frowned. “You don’t know?”
At this point, it seemed unnecessary for Reginald to pretend to be confused.
Bennett also sensed something off. “Old Mr. Sable, didn’t you secretly arrange a sniper? If I could kill Finnegan, he’d kill me to silence me. If I couldn’t kill Finnegan, he’d kill both Finnegan and me.”
Reginald finally caught on. “So, there was a sniper hidden when you killed Finnegan?”
Bennett nodded. “Exactly. That sniper almost killed Finnegan and even fired a shot at me.”
A lump formed in Reginald’s throat, causing him to cough up fresh blood once again. His aged face was filled with bitterness as he said, “The reason you repay kindness with enmity and led Finnegan along with hundreds of people to kill me is because of that sniper?”
Seeing Reginald spitting blood, Bennett felt something was terribly wrong. “Old Mr. Sable, are you saying you didn’t arrange for that sniper?”
Reginald opened his mouth, but as soon as he did, a mouthful of fresh blood spurted out. His eyes rolled back and he fainted.
It was evident that he was knocked out by anger.
Bennett’s eyebrows twitched. Looking at Finnegan, he asked, “Could someone have planted the sniper?
Should we stop for now?”
Taking a deep breath, Finnegan was also uncertain at this moment.
However, his killing intent remained. “Hailey, gather all the Sable family members living here. Vixen, accelerate the pace to eliminate everyone and clean up the scene. Mike, get your father inside and wake him up!”
