“Lisha, I’m sad to see you locked up, unable to go anywhere and even see the people you want to see!”
“Do you know I’ve gone to see Jagoan, the commander-in-chief of Dorodo’s city defense army? He’s very hospitable. He not only made tea for me but also said he would be my bodyguard in the future. He was so eager that I was embarrassed to refuse. But he’s from Dorodo after all. He can’t remain in Crosac forever, so I rejected him. Lisha, are you upset? Do you want to cry?
“Cry if you want. I won’t laugh at you… No, I might laugh at you a bit and save your face.” With that said, Aria snickered, utterly smug.
However, Lisha remained unfazed as if she had not heard Aria’s words.
After a long time, Lisha finally said flatly, “Doesn’t it feel good to boast?”
Lisha would not believe Aria had met Jagoan. She knew what Jagoan was like.
Jagoan was straightforward to all women as if they owed him five million dollars.
The impressive statement, “Women only affect how fast I can draw my sword.” was said by him in front of Shirley and herself.
How could such a proud and indifferent man make tea for Aria himself and also offer to become her bodyguard?
Aria was even bad at boasting!
Seeing that Lisha easily saw through her lie, Aria did not panic.
She snorted coldly and said, “Lisha, you asked Jagoan to assassinate me and injured Lowich, and that’s the truth. I know you want to deny it, but deny it all you want…”
“Dad won’t believe you. I can predict that you’ll be locked up in this room forever and imprisoned for the rest of your life. Even if I became mayor, I wouldn’t let you out!”
“Lisha, surrender and give in to me if you want to continue living in Crosac. You’re my sister after all. I won’t make it too bad for you. All I want is the position of the mayor of Crosac. I’m not interested in anything else.”
Hearing Aria’s words, Lisha remained unfazed.
After waiting for a long time, Aria said with a dark expression, “You’re still as stubborn as ever, so hold on then. I’ll see how long you can hold on!”
With that said, Aria strode off.
When she left, she slammed the door shut with a loud bang.
Fortunately, Lisha’s room door was sturdy. Otherwise, she might have broken it.
The captain of the mayor’s personal guards was reporting to Claremento in the mayor’s office.
Most people might not know about Aria’s meeting with Lisha, but it could not hide from Claremento, the mayor of Crosac. However, the main point was not about Aria meeting the mayor but about what was going on outside the city.
“Sir, I’ve received word that Dorodo seems to be up to something. Chiliarch Gregory of Dorodo’s city defense army has left Dorodo with 1,500 men. They disappeared after leaving the city, and there is no trace of their whereabouts.”
“What?” Claremento frowned.
He looked back in a certain direction, it was where Jagoan’s room was.
“I didn’t expect the kid to react so strongly. Young people are impulsive, including the commander-in-chief of the city defense army,” Claremento said slowly as he exhaled gently.
The personal guards of the mayor’s residence surrounded the room where Jagoan was.
It had been that way since Lisha and Aria’s fight broke out, and Aria bit back.
Jagoan was under house arrest. He had no freedom and could not leave at will. He was followed by the personal guards of the mayor’s residence even when going to the bathroom. However, it did not bother Jagoan.
He was prepared. Even if the worst happened, he had a way of leaving Crosac and safely returning to Dorodo with Jagoan and Shania, so Jagoan was not worried.
Jagoan was playing chess with Jagoan in the room.
He often played chess with Jagoan. However, considering recent events, it had been a long time since they had casually played chess for fun.
