Edgar was so arrogant.
Bingley’s face was dark when he finished. May, Caitlyn, and the rest were stunned. No one had expected Edgar to say such a thing to Bingley.
Who was Bingley?
Jamie was the chief government official of the area. Jamie had the power to intervene with anything in the area-whether it was a conglomerate, a school, or a hospital.
It was no exaggeration to say he could shut down the operations of any business with just one word.
One could get mad but only swallow it when facing someone like him. Whoever met Bingley was polite and respectful, fearing to offend him with anything they said.
However, Edgar told Bingley that he was protecting the orphanage. Jamie even said he would kill anyone who laid a hand on the orphanage.
Was he threatening Bingley?
No, it was a provocation and a threat.
In Bingley’s jurisdiction, saying he looked after the place and that whoever touched it would die was definitely a provocation and a threat! If Edgar had a strong identity and background, so be it. However, he was from the orphanage too.
So what if he had some money?
Bingley’s fury rose. Jamie could not tolerate it!
“What did you say?” Bingley gritted his teeth slightly and tried to suppress his anger.
If he was not in uniform today, he would have slapped Edgar.
“Are you deaf? Do I need to repeat myself?” Edgar’s gaze was indifferent, unfazed by Bingley.
Jamie had been polite to Bingley because of Bingley’s identity. Edgar was polite due to his identity, and he was respecting Dragon Kingdom’s system. It was not because he was scared of Bingley.
However, Bingley was using that identity to collude with Ken to intentionally pick on the orphanage.
How could Edgar possibly be nice to him?
“How dare you? Do you know Mr. Hommer’s identity?” A young man behind Bingley stepped forward suddenly and yelled as he pointed at Edgar’s nose.
“I hate people pointing at me more than anything else in my life.” Edgar’s eyes moved slowly and met the young man’s.
“Haha, you have a temper! But I’ve seen plenty of people with tempers. I’m pointing at you today. What can you do?” The young man froze when he heard that, then his face was full of disdain.
Jamie even pointed his finger forward a little, almost poking Edgar’s nose bridge.
The next moment, Edgar raised his hand and slapped hard.
“I can slap you,” The cold words came from Edgar’s mouth.
The young man stumbled away from the slap, holding his face.
“You!” Bingley widened his eyes, he never expected Edgar to strike someone.
Edgar not only struck, but he also slapped him pretty hard. The slap left everyone dumbfounded.
The girl next to Caitlyn said Edgar could slap Ken, but he could do nothing when facing the government.
Edgar had shown everyone that he dared to strike with his actions. However, daring to hit people was nothing.
If one could get away with hitting someone, you were something. After all, many people were outraged that Edgar dared to lay a hand on the staff.
However, they had to apologize eventually.
“What are you doing? You’re interfering with official duties! Arrest him!”
A dozen men behind Bingley came forward immediately.
However, Bingley held out his hand and stopped the people behind him.
Though confused, the crowd stopped. Bingley sized up Edgar again.
It was how things were most of the time. The weaker you were, the more others bullied you. The more forceful you were, the more intimidated the other party was and would not act recklessly.
Bingley discovered at this point that Edgar was unusual. Jamie had arrested a lot of people, and he had met bad-tempered people, even getting into fights with his men.
However, Edgar was unlike those people.
Those people acted impulsively in a fit of anger and were out of their minds. But, the other party was calm the whole time. And, he looked confident.
What did that mean?
Edgar knew what he was doing and was not afraid of the consequences.
One could only find such a state in two types of people.
Firstly, someone with a powerful identity and background, unafraid of everything in front of them, and full of confidence.
Secondly, desperados who were willing to risk it all. They had no hope for life, so they did not care, no matter how big the sin they were committing was.
Bingley could tell Edgar was not the second type. It meant Edgar might have some scary identity.
“Who the hell are you?” Bingley asked with a frown, holding out his hand to stop the crowd.
“Wanna know who I am? Who are you to know that?” Edgar’s eyes were full of sarcasm.
“Don’t be so sure. Don’t go too far either.” Bingley was also upset with Edgar’s attitude.
“I don’t want to waste my time talking to you. Now, take your men and leave. I’ll contact Ken. If you want to interfere, think it through and see if you can handle it.” Edgar poked Bingley’s chest, the look in his eyes and tone forceful.
May and the rest were dumbfounded.
They even thought for a moment that Edgar was Bingley’s boss.
“You seem to like the hard way! Shut down the orphanage now! I’ll see what you can do!” Bingley’s patience ran out, so he roared suddenly.
“Yes!” A dozen staff members replied and stepped forward.
“I’ll see who dares to move.” Edgar stepped forward, his voice icy.
“Who dares to move? Even if it’s the emperor, I’ll move! That includes you. Someone arrest him!” Bingley took a step back and pointed at Edgar as he ordered.
“Yes!” Two young men replied and took out handcuffs to cuff Edgar.
