After he hung up, Thomas was still thinking about the other party’s intentions.
Were they true or false?
Pisces said, “There must be a problem with Dragon Head! There’s no way he would ask for a truce. Well, then the sun will rise from the west tomorrow. As I see it, he must have set up a trap and has an ambush ready.”
Thomas laughed, “The time and venue are chosen by me. How can he set up a trap?”
“Er… ” Pisces was speechless but still insisted. “Anyway, I think Dragon Head is not a good person. He certainly has no good intentions.”
Actually, Thomas also had the same thought.
How could a man like Dragon Head choose to sue for peace?
For a while, they could not figure out his true intentions. They would not know what was on his mind until they met. Thomas decided on a safer venue and time after much deliberation and had Pisces notify Dragon Head.
Two days later, at the appointed time and venue, Thomas sat inside the octagonal pavilion in the park as he patiently waited for the arrival of Dragon Head.
This was a really rare opportunity.
After all, Thomas was usually the one who was invited to an appointment; he rarely invited others to his appointment.
A minute later, Dragon Head’s car arrived.
The car door opened. Dragon Head walked over with steady steps. This was his first official meeting with Thomas.
“Mr. Mayo, I’ve always heard about your legendary deeds, but when I see you today, you are really handsome and an extraordinary person.”
Thomas waved his hand. ”Let’s just skip the compliments.”
The two of them sat down face to face.
Thomas was the first to speak. ”I really couldn’t have imagined that a man like you would actually choose to seek peace. ”
Dragon Head laughed, “A wise man knows how to adapt to situations and retreat when difficulties arise.”
“That’s a good point.” Thomas looked at Dragon Head’s eyes. “Care to tell me how you’re going to retreat?”
Dragon Head said, “You and Iwill coexist peacefully and without interfering with one another. Celandine City will be yours from now on. I will completely step back, and Lord Vedastus’ faction will be at your disposal. How does that sound?”
It was already a very big compromise for Dragon Head.
The question was, would Thomas agree to it so readily?
He laughed lightly and said, “You’re just giving up on Celandine City?”
Dragon Head frowned and asked, “Oh? What else do you want?”
Thomas said, “As far as I know, Luck has forces distributed throughout the country, and they control more than ten cities. Celandine City is simply dispensable to you. If you are really sincere in seeking peace, then please remove all of Luck’s forces nationwide. You can go and create trouble in other countries.”
After hearing those words, Dragon Head was so mad that he nearly had a stroke.
“Thomas, don’t push your luck!”
