Chapter 751 Matt Became Veronica’s Bodyguard
“It’s not his fault.” Veronica stepped forward. “I’m responsible as well.”
She got a headache when she heard Mateo and Liam quarrel in the private room. Without giving it much thought, she left the two to work it out amongst themselves.
Now that she thought about it, it did seem like her method of handling it was inadequate.
“It’s got nothing to do with you. You didn’t even understand what we were talking about.”
Mateo was the type of person who owned up to his actions. He would never push all the responsibility on Veronica.
Now that he had said that, she couldn’t explain even if she wanted to.
As he said, she ‘didn’t understand’ what they were saying. And if she argued about how she had a translator and could understand their conversation, she would only be in trouble.
She remained silent at that. You’re on your own then.
“Oh, Mateo. You were too reckless.” Destiny also shook her head.
With that, she turned her head to look at Crayson. “Mr. Crayson, I’m afraid it’ll be inappropriate for Mateo to show up these days. Veronica also needs someone to protect and translate for her. What should we do?”
They already knew about Tanya approaching Veronica, but they didn’t ask much.
Of course, since they didn’t ask, Veronica would never take the initiative to talk about it.
Crayson raised his hand to touch the short white hair on his head and his worry only grew as he let out a long sigh.
Veronica’s eyes dropped slightly as a flash of light appeared in her eyes. “Or we can let Iron Pillar follow me. I can protect myself and I don’t need anyone to protect me. Besides, he is the only one who is not a member of the hidden clan.”
She intentionally dragged her last sentence. “Um…”
Destiny was slightly surprised to hear that. She turned her head to look in the direction of the kitchen and happened to see Iron Pillar walking over with the food.
Then, she withdrew her gaze and exchanged a glance with Crayson as if asking for his opinion.
“No!” Mateo was the first person to stand up and object. “Iron Pillar is an ordinary person who doesn’t understand anything. He doesn’t know the rest of the hidden clan. How can we let him follow Veronica?”
“And you think you are capable of doing it? Just look at your handiwork!” Crayson angrily huffed, his hand heavily hitting the table.
“What? What did I do?” Matthew gaped at them with a ‘bewildered’ look, his obedient and honest appearance making him look silly. He was putting on the perfect act now.
Seeing this, Veronica quietly sighed to herself. What a good actor. I’m surprised I never noticed. Tsk tsk. It’s a pity he isn’t an actor.
“You…” Crayson’s eyebrows were tightly pulled together as he pondered. He finally had no choice but to agree with Veronica’s suggestion. “Fine. Let Iron Pillar stay with you these two days. I’ll find someone new who can protect you within these few days.”
“Mm, that’s what I have in mind as well,” Destiny pressed her hands together and echoed.
Mateo’s face turned dark immediately. “We agreed on letting me protect Roni. What’s the meaning of this? It’s only Liam. I can just avoid him in the future.”
Hearing that, Crayson glared at him and boomed, “Shut your mouth! Go and reflect on your actions in your room. No dinner for you tonight.”
The grandfather and grandson continued to look at each other until Mateo lost the battle and stomped back to the room angrily, slamming the door shut behind him.
“Brat, what are you doing standing there zoning out? Hurry up and come have dinner.” Crayson waved Veronica over to the dining room after the living room regained its peace.
During the meal, Matthew stayed by himself in the kitchen.
To avoid revealing his identity, he didn’t want to appear too much in front of Crayson. Veronica, however, was disheartened by the fact that Matthew could only eat in the kitchen. Every bite of the food that she chewed tasted like wax.
Crayson put food on her plate at the dinner table while he murmured in a comforting tone, “Don’t mind it too much. Mateo is reckless because he is still young. Let Iron Pillar accompany you these few days. He might not be as skilled as you are, but he has worked for Destiny for many years. He can be trusted.”
