Tao roared with all his might as he rushed toward Jack with a large sword in his hands. Alas, he did not even come close when Ethan slew him with a sword aura.
Just like that, about 1000 masters were killed in just 10 minutes. As for Jack and his people, they achieved total success by only sacrificing several people and a dozen people being hurt.
“Haha! That felt so good! It’s been such a long time since I had a huge battle!” One of the old men from a first-class aristocratic family in the City of Martial Arts burst into laughter.
Jack looked at the time and said, “It’s late now. These people must have many trophies on them. The weapons and other things seem nice! Everybody should calculate the trophies and divide the items between us, and then we’ll go out for lunch!”
That was music to everyone’s ears. After all, their opponents were distinguished people of powerful families. The money and weapons on them were eye-catching, and such trophies were enough to make others jealous.
They then drove to the seven-star hotel after they got rid of the bodies and cleaned the area.
At that moment, where the White family was… The Ninth Patronum, Brenton White once again appeared before Madam Lily.
“How’s everything going? It’s been a couple of days, yet you still haven’t found Jack and the others? You still don’t have a way to kill them?”
Lily was constantly on edge at the lack of news on Joan and Jack. They could not even find her son, Lance, and they knew not whether he was alive or dead. If nothing was done and Joan truly returned with Jack, the heir of the master’s position would truly fall into Jack’s hands.
Apart from that, Nash’s condition only grew worse. The request for an heir to the master’s position in the family was gradually increasing.
Brenton sighed in front of Lily. “I know that Jack and the others have left Middle Province, so we immediately sent people to guard the only path that leads to the White family. I asked my people to kill them upon sight.” Brenton paused before he added, “However, it’s been several days. They would’ve appeared long ago if they truly were headed here, yet there’s still no sign of them.”
“Didn’t you say that Jack offended some powerful people from Gin City, and that made him leave with his family?” Lily frowned and started thinking. “If Jack and the others offended the other party but have no intention of seeking refuge under the White family, then there’s only one possibility left… They’ve gone into hiding. They’ve found an inhabited place to hide!”
Brenton nodded at his Madam’s words; that seemed plausible. “That’s a good thing for us if that’s the case. This means that Jack misunderstood Nash and still hated him because of what happened years ago, and that meant he never thought of returning to inherit the White family properties. If that’s the case, then it’s good news for us!”
It was not long before Brenton’s frown resurfaced. “But what should we do if Jack doesn’t inherit the position and we still can’t find Young Master Lance, worse still if he’s dead? Seems like Nash’s days are running out as well.”
“Nash won’t die, and my son is still alive—I know it!” Lily shook her head and continued, “Even if we can’t find my son, we can’t allow Jack to be the inheritor, even if that meant a son of another White family’s elder becomes the inheritor. Jack should never rise to the position!”
Brenton nodded. He finally looked at Lily and said, “Madam, it’s been so many days, and Jack is still not here. I believe he won’t be coming, so why don’t I withdraw my people? They’ve been complaining about eating and sleeping in the wild for so many days, with no Jack in sight!”
Lily was quiet for some time before she replied, “Alright, ask them to return tomorrow morning, but you still need to send people outside and get news about Jack’s whereabouts. Is that clear?”
