In House of Vistaria, Dragon Head and Dragon Scale drank tea as they listened to their subordinate’s report on the latest information. After Dragon Head listened to it, he subconsciously broke into a meaningful, faint smile.
Meanwhile, Dragon Scale became furious and yelled, “Kazuo Yamamoto is such a huge piece of trash! Four of his subordinates were killed. Dragon Head, you spent $500,000,000 to invite such trash over here to help us. Is he really reliable?”
Dragon Head did not mind her question.
He replied, “Before I invited Kazuo, I already conducted a detailed investigation on him. Honestly, I didn’t put any hope on his four subordinates killing Thomas.”
“Huh?” Dragon Scale was confused as she asked, “But why did you still spend so much money to invite him here?”
Dragon Head explained, “The truth is, I invited him here because I have my eye on his last subordinate, Sky Dog! He’s a genius teen who’s absolutely capable and even better than Kazuo. Getting Sky Dog to take Thomas down is my real purpose.”
Dragon Scale nodded. “I see. But what if Sky Dog fails too? Kazuo would completely fail. Even if he takes matters into his own hands, he’ll die as well.”
Dragon Head shrugged and did not seem to care about it at all.
He said, “It doesn’t matter if all of them die or fail. At least I’ll get more information about Thomas. Besides, if all of them die, I don’t have to pay them, right? It will save me $500,000,000.”
He was really shameless. He recruited people to take Thomas down just because he wanted to sacrifice them to test Thomas’ abilities. He was letting Kazuo march toward his own death.
If Kazuo died, Dragon Head would not have to pay a single cent…
Dragon Scale chuckled and asked, “Are you willing to pay even if Kazuo completes his mission?”
After all, she understood Dragon Head. Even if Kazuo completed the mission, he would not receive any money.
Not only would Kazuo not receive any money, Dragon Head would also kill Kazuo to maintain his good reputation.
In other words, from the moment Dragon Head invited Kazuo to Celandine City, he never thought of paying him. Kazuo was destined to die.
There were only two endings for Kazuo, he would either be killed by Thomas or Dragon Head. That sly man who only cared about money would not be able to outsmart the intelligent Dragon Head.
While Kazuo was thinking of setting Thomas up for money, someone else was also setting him up. His life was already in Dragon Head’s hand!
Dragon Scale drank a cup of tea and let out a long sigh before she said, “But I didn’t expect Thomas to be so strong. Kazuo’s four subordinates were quite capable, yet Thomas killed them just like that.”
“I’m actually puzzled about that too…” Dragon Head stared at the sky outside the window and said, “Theoretically, ninja skills are pretty much uncharted territory, and it also happens to be a field that Thomas has no exposure to. Even if he can kill those four subordinates, he should also be injured…”
“The problem is, he’s totally fine. Is Thomas too strong or are those subordinates too weak?”
What they did not know was that there was also a ninja expert on Thomas’ side!
That was not Dragon Head’s fault.
He never would have thought that Ryosuke would come to Celandine City. Plus, it never would have occurred to him that Ryosuke would be saved by Thomas either, which subsequently led to him cooperating with Thomas.
This was an example of what people meant by, “Sometimes, plans would go astray.”
The sky slowly turned dark, and the moon gradually climbed up the sky.
Thomas, Pisces, and Ryosuke sat in a VIP resting lounge, eating some snacks while discussing their subsequent plan.
Logically speaking, Iga would only send out Sky Dog or Kazuo at this point.
