“Tsk, Mrs. Kent, you are quite bold and vigorous to deal with Noah!” Jagoan exclaimed with a click of his tongue.
He found the young man disgusting, so he was pleased to see Noah taken down.
Seeney remarked, “Why keep a wild card like him around if he’s unmanageable? Are we supposed to wait for him to cause trouble again?”
Jagoan added, “You have a sense of humor…”
After speaking, he stood up and said calmly, “Even if Taekwonryu comes looking for trouble, I won’t lift a finger against Johne. Because I hate being manipulated by others. Even if Jagoan plotted against me, she would have to apologize to me. If you scheme against me and then act like nothing happened, that’s not going to fly!”
Noticing that Jagoan seemed genuinely angry, Seeney frowned and said, “Mr. Evans, the plaque means a lot to me. It was something my late husband never forgot.”
Jagoan replied coldly, “You keep switching between talking about your late husband and late father. It’s annoying to listen to all this talk about dead people.”
Seeney was taken aback and then became enraged. “Do you think I want to do this? I’m a woman, living in the midst of so many vultures. Is that easy?”
Jagoan turned to her and said, “Everything you have now belongs to the Jones family, not you. If it’s so difficult to keep possession, why not let go?”
Seeney sneered, “It’s easy for Mr. Evans to talk like that. Have you ever thought about what would happen to me if I let go of my power?”
Jagoan shook his head and said, “Obtaining enlightenment helps, loses to get little support. Mrs. Kent, I don’t like your character. You’re too skilled at scheming. In the future, let’s keep our interactions to a minimum. Your life has nothing to do with me.”
Upon hearing Jagoan’s words, Seeney’s face turned pale. After all, Jagoan had saved her life twice and even resolved the huge trouble brought by Kerr Jones. Seeney thought that they could at least be considered friends, but she never expected Jagoan to speak so heartlessly.
“There are countless people in this world who want to be friends with me, and I won’t miss you if you’re gone!” Seeney retorted.
“Do you even have any friends with your sneaky nature?” Jagoan turned back and sneered.
“Real friends stick together through thick and thin, through life and death. Jagoan is also a capitalist, but I can be friends with her. As for you… Well, forget it!”
Seeney felt the sharpness of Jagoan’s words pierce her heart, making it skip a beat. Tears were almost streaming down her face.
“How would it hurt to just help me a little? I’ve sincerely and politely asked for your help. Do you think I want to use these methods?” Seeney said through gritted teeth.
“Because you were never honest from the start,” Jagoan laughed as he walked towards the door.
Seeney felt the pain of his words, but she couldn’t refute him.
After Seeney left, he felt a sense of relief. Putting this arrogant woman in her place was definitely satisfying!
However, Seeney was sure to be upset for a while.
But what did that matter to him?
After all, she was the one who had tried to deceive him from the beginning!
Jagoan went to see Jagoan and Jade happened to be there too, so they made plans to have dinner together. Jagoan invited Jagoan as well, so there were three women at the table, all with stunning looks and figures, which made Jagoan feel full just looking at them.
If this were before, Jagoan would have been uncomfortable and unsure around people like Jade and Jagoan. But after training in martial arts, she became much braver and more outgoing. Now, she could talk and laugh with them, and even express her opinions.
“Mr. Evans, will you sell your secretary to me? Name your price, I’ll take her back to Manskarta with me!” Jagoan said greedily, her eyes occasionally glancing at Jagoan’s chest.
“Sell her? One hundred billion dollars,” Jagoan replied with a grin.
Jagoan knew it was a joke, but she couldn’t help feeling unhappy.
Wasn’t she supposed to be a treasure?
Shouldn’t treasures be priceless?
Jagoan shushed and shook her head. “Never mind, it’s too expensive. I can’t afford it.”
During dinner, Jagoan took the initiative to talk to Jade and asked her about her martial arts training. This was a topic that martial artists usually didn’t discuss with each other unless they had a particularly close relationship. But Jagoan asked openly, and Jade didn’t mind.
After a moment of surprise, Jade started chatting with Jagoan.
“You’ve only been training in martial arts for a few months?” Jade was amazed to hear this.
“Yes, really. Do you know Shane Liam? He’s a young man from the Lach family in Emperia City who’s really good at Dragon-style Kung Fu, but Jagoan kicked him in the balls,” Jagoan boasted.
Jade was even more surprised as she looked Jagoan up and down, finding it hard to believe.
Jade knew Shane Liam. He was the grandson of Saron Liam and had trained hard in Dragon-style Kung Fu. However, he was surprisingly defeated by Jagoan, who had only been training for a few months.
“I’m not as good as you think… I was also seriously injured and haven’t fully recovered yet. I have high intracranial pressure and my heart occasionally hurts,” Jagoan said somewhat embarrassedly.
Jade said, “You were able to seize the opportunity and burst out with your physical abilities at a critical moment, kicking Shane half to death with one kick. That’s also a remarkable achievement. If you had met Jagoan a few years earlier, you might be able to stand on your own now, even establish your own faction…”
Hearing this, Jagoan just smiled.
A few years ago, she was still studying abroad in Nordime. Her personality was also extremely timid. She seemed quite arrogant and aloof, but whenever something happened, she was always the first to back down. If life could really be foreseen, she would have been willing to return to her country earlier and meet Jagoan sooner.
“To be able to do a good job, fight well, and even sleep together… Oh, I want a secretary like that too. I’m so envious!” Jagoan said in a pitiful tone.
“I can do it!” Jagoan said seriously.
“I also work very diligently. Look at how well Giradia Group has been doing since I came! I’m also a top fighter. After self-study, I’ve hardly ever lost a match. If you don’t believe me, ask General Perkins. As for sleeping, anyone can do it,” Jagoan said.
Jagoan couldn’t help but laugh and said, “Can you go die?”
Jagoan nodded in agreement.
Jade also said coldly, “I think so too…”
Jagoan felt like he couldn’t eat with them anymore in the future. He was too easy to target.
Jagoan looked at the phone suddenly, then turned to Jagoan and said, “Mr. Evans, trouble is coming. Taekwonryu has sent a request to our company.”
“Hmm?” Jagoan couldn’t help but be surprised.
“Johne wants to arrange a time to fight you,” Jagoan said solemnly.
Jagoan laughed and said, “See, I told you to have less contact with Seeney. She’s full of evil intentions and wants to destroy you!”
Jagoan said, “I’ve already told her that I ended our friendship. Jagoan, please reply and reject the request.”
