In another manner of speaking, people like Lionel were just slightly more useful expendables.
In the eyes of the truly strong, people like that could be sacrificed at any moment. Working with any other warrior who stood at the peak would just be putting himself in danger.
Jagoan scoffed and said, “He’s one of those who think they’re smart. He was figuring out so much about you in front of so many people and even exposed us, yet he never even thought that you might not want to expose your identity. That goes for the two of us too…”
“He made his assumptions, thinking that he’d be able to show his worth if he did, but all he did was frustrate us. He might be smart, but he thinks too much of himself. He’ll end up causing his death one way or another.”
Jagoan nodded. Jagoan was right, Lionel was too haughty.
He was probably smarter than the average person, which earned him a lot of praise yet caused him to grow pompous and incredibly selfish. He was not someone that would go far.
Even if Jagoan needed a strategist, he would never look for someone like him. After all, their judgments would not always be right, but they would never acknowledge their blunder should it happen.
Jagoan shook his head. “Whatever! Let’s forget about him. People like him will meet their demise eventually. He’ll end up giving away his life.”
He took out a piece of purple gold from his spatial storage and held it tightly in his palm. He was afraid of anyone seeing it when he took it out, looking around everywhere. Fortunately, everyone was chatting away, and no one was looking at the corner where there were three of them.
However, to prevent any trouble, he did not place the purple gold on the table but grasped it in his hand as he showed it to Jagoan and Jagoan excitedly. His smile was so wide that it almost reached his ears.
Jagoan whispered, his excitement almost oozing out of his eyes, “I have ten million now!”
Knowing Jagoan’s personality, he would never act so giddily unless he was excited to the brink. He would often act in a slightly lofty manner typically, but at this moment, he looked like a little businessman who just made a small fortune.
Jagoan raised an eyebrow and took out a piece of purple gold as well.
Jagoan could see Jagoan’s lips twitching. He wanted to smile, but amid his struggle to quell his smirk, it made his expression look a bit twisted. The two of them were very happy.
The two of them only managed to enter Violet City because of Jagoan, and because of this, they got to see many incredibly strong warriors within. Even those strong warriors failed in Violet City’s challengers, and some of them even died.
These things greatly impacted them mentally.
They understood that they stood at the bottom of Violet City and would not be able to gain much at all, but they were surprised to find that Jagoan had not stopped the two of them from following him.
Even though they were not Jagoan’s followers and were not performing that well, he had not blamed them at all. They even managed to make quite a lot thanks to him.
In the Slaughter Hall, the two of them had taken out over a million spirit crystals and betted it on Jagoan.
