Of course, Joe would help the Hopp family as much as he could. After all, his relationship with Carl was not bad. They were friends. Moreover, Gerard was the mayor of Mimar City. So it would be more convenient for him to do something in Mimar City.
Winfrid was looking for Angelina for business, and Gerard was also looking for Angelina for business, which made Joe feel a little funny. It seemed that what happened last time made the two feel ashamed to face him.
Seeing Joe’s strange expression, Angelina couldn’t help but hurriedly say, ”It wasn’t my father who asked me to find you, but because I was worried, so I came to you.”
Joe couldn’t help being surprised, and said, “Didn’t he ask you to come to me? What’s the matter?”
“My dad made a major contribution before he became the mayor. He solved a case involving a very powerful person. This powerful person left Hechland directly before the incident happened, and went overseas… Moreover, this case has also been classified as a top secret and sealed up. But recently, this case has been leaked…”
Angelina narrated this incident to Stefan.
It was before Gerard became the mayor.
Joe didn’t think it was surprising that a case classified as a high-level secret was leaked. Gerard was in a high position, so he must have enemies.
In order to deal with him, his enemies deliberately leaked the events of the past, using others to attack him, and they didn’t need to do anything else.
Angelina said, “After this powerful person learned about the situation, he has already let out rumors that he wants to seek revenge.”
Joe said, “That’s easy. Your father is the mayor, so why don’t you just seek the protection of Homeland Security or the War Department?”
Angelina smiled and said, “It would be great if the matter were really that simple… Back then, my father didn’t dare to investigate this case to the end, because there were too many important people involved. This can be regarded as a scandal. In order not to make things bigger, they blocked the files…”
“So, it is impossible for my dad to seek help from them at all. We can only find a way to solve it in a more secret way. Although Homeland Security sent a master to protect my dad, I was worried that something might happen.”
Joe couldn’t help but nod.
He was born into a high-ranking family. So naturally, he knew very well that some things were much dirtier than they looked.
For example, some special policies seemed to benefit people, but they were actually just to facilitate money laundering by certain privileged classes.
Joe asked, “So, who is this powerful person?”
Angelina pursed her lips, and said in a low voice, “I also overheard the conversation between my dad and my uncle, so don’t tell anyone about it.”
Joe shrugged, which meant he didn’t care if she told him. Angelina couldn’t help being a little angry when she saw Joe’s appearance.
When this guy was annoying, she really wanted to chop him with a knife!
“This person’s name is Henry Parker, and you should have heard of him,” Angelina said.
After Joe heard the name, he couldn’t help but frowned, and said, “The main protagonist of the treason incident back then, the famous boss of Homeland Security, Henry, right?”
After saying this, he couldn’t help pouring, and said, “Then your father is really in trouble. The Floody Gang…”
The Floody Gang had established hundreds of years ago. It had a strong background. Although there were not as many people as Dracodise, it could be said that there were thousands of them.
The people in this organization, some of them were nobody, some of them were famous and in high positions, some of them were astonishingly powerful, some of them were rich.
Henry was a disciple of the Hong Gang. After joining Homeland Security, relying on his outstanding personal ability and the blessing of the Floody Gang’s background, he was promoted to a higher rank just when everyone thought that he would achieve greater achievements in the future, a piece of news appeared, Henry betrayed the country.
Now, Joe finally understood, it turned out that Henry left the country because of this matter!
No wonder Angelina didn’t feel at ease after Homeland Security sent an expert to protect Gerard and felt that something would happen. It was because there was such a person watching over him.
“That’s why I found you. I have no choice.” Angelina said helplessly.
“To be honest, I don’t want to get involved in this matter. After all, the person involved is Henry, and maybe even the Bloody Gang will be offended,” Joe answered with a helpless smile.
He was not a fool. Gerard’s favor was not worth his life.
Angelina turned cold and said, “Are you so unreasonable? If you can help me, I will agree to any conditions.”
Joe shook his head and said, “Let’s talk about it later. I will think about it…”
He said he would think about it, but he actually rejected it in his heart. It was not because he was cowardly, but because he felt that it was unnecessary to do so. And the gain outweighed the loss!
Angelina was disappointed. But she didn’t press too hard.
She just said, “Then you should think about it seriously… I have lost my mother, so I can’t lose my father anymore.”
She tried hard to get out of the pain. If she suffered it again, she would really be devastated from then on.
Joe only politely responded, but did not agree.
Angelina smiled helplessly, “Forget it, let’s not talk about these things. Let’s have fun today. I invite you to archery. If you are better than me, I will pay for the dinner!”
Joe chuckled and said, “I’m not good at it. I guess I don’t have the fortune to eat the dinner you invited.”
His words seemed to be telling Moana that he could not play badminton. Of course, he did not say this to do something else back then, but to distance himself from Angelina a little. Otherwise, he might find it hard to refuse her.
At the archery area, Lucian was drawing his bow. With a snap, the target was hit by an arrow in the middle!
“Mr. Lucian is amazing. Your archery skill is really incredible!”
“I think Mr. Lucian should go to participate in some amateur competitions, and it is easy to win two championships.”
“Yes, Mr. Lucian is really perfect. He is the youngest senior prosecutor in Mimar City, and he has such excellent archery skills!”
Lucian was obviously the head of this group of people. After all, he was young, had a background and strength, and was worth pleasing.
Lucian couldn’t help showing a smug look.
He happened to see Angelina and Joe coming over, and said, “Angelina, let your friend participate in our competition today.”
He wanted to take this opportunity to humiliate his opponent.
Joe just shook his head and said, “I’m sorry, I’m a country bumpkin. I don’t know how to play aristocratic sports like archery. I don’t deserve it.”
Everyone couldn’t help being taken aback, but Angelina was amused by his self-joking and glanced at him.
Why did he say all the words we were going to scold him?
Several of Lucian’s followers couldn’t help muttering in their hearts. Those sarcastic words were not good to say at this time.
