Eddie understood immediately.
He deliberately slowed down and unbuttoned the cuffs of his shirt one by one. Then he rolled up his sleeves.
When the Smith family members walked over, Eddie grabbed Jane’s arm and gave her a tight slap.
Jane was sent staggering to the ground by the hard slap.
The people around her could not help but exclaim. The relatives of the Smith family were even more worried that they would be implicated. They quickly dispersed in fear, leaving Jane who had fallen onto the ground.
Louis‘ second aunt, who was hiding furthest from the commotion, secretly sized up Eddie Brook.
Eddie looked gentlemanly. When the members of the Smith family passed by him, none of them were vigilant. Who would have thought that he would suddenly hit Jane?
Moreover, the impact of the slap was very strong. Otherwise, Jane would not have fallen onto the ground.
As Jane lay on the ground, everyone could see that her cheek became swollen almost immediately. There was blood in her mouth.
Half of her face felt numb, and there were ringing sounds in her ears. For a moment, Jane could not hear what people were saying.
“Jane!” Mrs. Smith hurriedly rushed forward and knelt on the ground. She wrapped her arms around Jane and stroked Jane’s head with her palm. “Jane, how are you feeling?”
The moment Jane was in Mrs. Smith’s arms, she finally could not help but cry out loud.
Her unseemly cries were so heartwrenching that Mrs. Smith felt an extremely tight feeling in her heart.
Mrs. Smith gave birth to Jane when she was 35 years old. Naturally, she doted on Jane, and Jane grew up being pampered by everyone.
As a result, Jane became a spoilt and domineering woman.
However, even if her personality was not pleasant, Jane would always be Mrs. Smith’s precious baby as she was her flesh and blood.
“Don’t cry, my baby! Mom is here.” As Mrs. Smith spoke, She suddenly raised her head and looked at Eddie angrily. “Mister, there’s no enmity between us. What right do you have to hit my daughter?”
“Who says there is no enmity between us?” Eddie lowered his eyes and looked at Mrs. Smith indifferently.
Then, his cold gaze moved from Mrs. Smith to Jane’s face. His cold voice sounded. “Miss Smith used unpleasant words to humiliate our young mistress. To give her just one slap is already a light punishment. Her tongue should be pulled out.”
Hearing that, Jane shuddered and snuggled into Mrs. Smith’s arms.
Perhaps because Eddie had been by David’s side for a long time, his tone was exactly as cold and emotionless as David’s.
Eddie knew better than anyone else how important Miss Grey was to David.
Rachel was the number one person in David’s heart. Eddie knew that because David rushed back overnight when he found out what had happened despite being on a business trip in Odrax.
The Smith family members still had the cheek to make slanderous remarks about Rachel in front of David. They really deserved a good beating!
“This is intimidation, and it is against the law!” Mrs. Smith sensed the hidden hostility from Eddie, and she felt fear in her heart.
However, she did not dare to do anything else except criticize him with a
“Then let’s call the police. Your daughter can admit to her offense of slandering others,” Eddie said casually.
Mrs. Smith was speechless.
“Remember, Rachel Grey is not someone you would want to offend!”
Eddie’s tone was indifferent and slow, and his voice seemed so cold that it made people shiver.
In an instant, everyone fell silent.
Mrs. Smith’s eyebrows twitched intensely. She looked up at David standing in the distance and narrowed her eyes. A cold glint flashed across her eyes. “This man is really arrogant!“
