Dylan was indeed a son of the Howard Family, but he was adopted. His status was not superior in Howard Family, and the annual bonus was far less than the legitimate son. Thus, the legitimate son, Tom, was the key person of the Howard Family.
Before Tom was expelled from the Howard Family, Dylan was inferior in front of Tom, and he had to treat Tom with respect and could not make any overstepping moves. Specifically, when Tom was standing, Dylan must not sit. If Tom was sitting, Dylan could not sit down. Otherwise, it was disrespectful to Tom!
Theoretically, Tom had been expelled from the Howard Family and became an ordinary person, so Dylan should no longer fear Tom anymore. But the truth was just the opposite. He now had to respect Tom even more! The most important thing was that their grandfather, Anderson, had transferred seventy percent of the family's assets to Tom before he died! It was no exaggeration to say that Tom was now the most powerful person in the Howard Family, and everyone in the Howard Family had to act according to Tom's will.
And a while ago, Howard Family ordered that anyone who met Tom is respectful to him, strive for his forgiveness, and invite him back to Howard Family and be the master.
But what he didn't understand was why Tom was here.
Brian didn't know what was going on. He was so scared in front of Dylan that he was trembling. His mind was in a mess, and he tried to control his tone without shaking. "Mr. Howard, I... Logan is not my brother-in-law. I have nothing to do with them... I don't dare to be against you, Mr. Howard."
Dylan did not answer Brian. He looked at Tom and adjusted his mood. Just as he was about to flatter Tom, Tom glared at him back with a cold and threatening look.
Dylan was a smart person. He immediately understood what Tom meant. Tom didn't want him to identify themselves.
He was very frightened by Tom's action. Was Tom angry with him?
Tom coughed twice, walked quickly to Phoebe, and said, "Dad, mom, Phoebe, is your brother okay?"
When Phoebe saw him, her face was full of disgust and contempt. She scolded him rudely, "I said you should stay in the car. Why did you come here?!"
Elizabeth frowned and cursed, "Useless thing. Who told you to come here? Get back!"
James didn't like him either.
When Dylan saw this, he was dumbfounded. What was going on? Tom was insulted by these three people and didn't dare to answer back?
"Wait a minute. What was Tom calling them just now? Dad? Mom?" Dylan thought in his heart.
Tom gave Dylan a look, and Dylan couldn't help but shiver. "Damn it." Dylan understood and thought, "It was Tom who married into this family! Then Logan was Tom's brother-in-law. Damn it. I beat Tom's brother-in-law like this. I'm going to die!"
Just as he was trembling with fear and was about to kneel to repent for Tom, he heard Phoebe say, "Mr. Howard, we really can't afford so much money. We are lowly and have no right to bargain with you, but I hope you let my brother go, okay? I'm willing to do anything for you."
Dylan was very scared. This was Tom's wife. How could he be so arrogant? Thus, he said quickly, "I was just joking with you. How could I let you pay so much money? It's still my fault. These guys are ignorant, and they struck Logan. I'm sorry."
"What was going on?"
Phoebe was confused.
Brian was dumbfounded.
James and Elizabeth also opened their eyes wide.
Not to mention them, even the rich second-generation men there with Dylan were shocked.
Only Tom's expression remained the same. He gave Dylan another look, then he went over to help Logan up and said, "Logan, let's go back."
When Logan saw that it was Tom, there was obvious disdain and disgust in his eyes. He pushed Tom away and scolded him in a low voice. Then he stood up and walked to Dylan. He bowed sincerely in front of Dylan and apologized loudly to him.
Dylan kept a smile on his face. He patted Logan on the shoulder and said, "Buddy, I'm sorry I hurt you just now."
"No, no, no..." Logan was so flattered that he couldn't speak clearly.
The others also found it incredible. Why was Dylan suddenly so polite? Could it be a trick?
Seeing this situation, Brian did not dare to stay anymore. He cupped his fists and said a respectful "thank you" to Dylan. Then he winked at Phoebe and the others and asked them to leave quickly so that Dylan would not go back on his word.
"Mr. Howard, why did you let them go? It's not your style for not breaking his legs when the beast-like Logan insult you."
"Yes, Mr. Howard! And Logan's sister is so beautiful. If I can get her on the bed..."
There was a slap on his face suddenly. Before the man could finish his sentence, Dylan slapped him on his face and stunned him.
Dylan scolded coldly, "Shut up!"
The other men were all dumbfounded and couldn't figure out why Dylan would hit him.
However, they did not dare to say anything. Although they were also rich second generation, they were still far from Dylan. After all, Howard Family was supporting Dylan.
Dylan did not care about their feelings and said, "You are not allowed to trouble Logan and his sister in the future, or you will be against me!"
They nodded hurriedly, not daring to ask more. In their hearts, they were all wondering why Mr. Howard had taken a fancy to Logan's sister.
While Tom followed Phoebe and the others out of the billiards club, he breathed a sigh of relief. Dylan was still quite smart. He understood his look and did not reveal his identity.
When he first joined the Scott Family, he was completely hiding his background from Phoebe. He didn't want Phoebe to misunderstand, and he didn't want to have anything to do with the Howard Family in his heart!
"Brian, thank you for that. If it weren't for you, we wouldn't have been able to save our brother."
After coming out, Phoebe said to Brian gratefully.
Brian was stunned, then he waved his hand and said faintly, "Hey, Phoebe, you don't need to say that. Your business is my business. What's there to thank for? Can I ignore it?"
James held Brian's hand and said excitedly, "Brian, thank you so much this time. My son would be tortured if it weren't for your assistance. Our Scott Family owes you a big favor!"
Elizabeth also quickly thanked Brian and pushed Logan to thank the savior.
Brian was inflatable in his heart. In fact, he did not know why Dylan suddenly changed his attitude and let them go. Was it really because of him? Well, it should be like this! He thought he was the mightiest person there. Dylan must have done that because of him. Could it be because of Tom, that trash? What a joke!
