Meanwhile, Fernando left right after sending Jagoan to the Department of Justice. It seemed like Fernando wasn’t keen on meeting Arthur.
Jagoan entered the Department of Justice and bumped into Theodore. It had been a long time since they met each other in person.
“Mr. Chance!” Theodore was rather excited to see Jagoan appearing in the Department of Justice.
“It’s been a while, General Jackson.” Jagoan smiled.
“It really has. I heard that the Warriors Alliance has been causing you trouble non-stop, even sending people out to hunt you down several times. Why are you still in Jadeborough?” Theodore asked in confusion.
Although Theodore heard about Jagoan all the time, he didn’t know much about what was going on behind the scene.
In fact, there were a lot of things that he, the general of the Department of Justice, couldn’t intervene in. Besides, with Arthur leading the Department of Justice, Xavier would be the one attending to matters regarding Jagoan. Hence, Theodore couldn’t do anything to help him.
“I came to look for Mr. Sanders,” Jagoan said.
“Oh, I see. Mr. Sanders is waiting for you in the main hall. I’ll bring you there.”
With that, Theodore led Jagoan toward the main hall.
Jagoan was frowning because he was baffled.
What? Mr. Sanders is waiting for me?
How did he know I was coming?
Upon arriving in the main hall, Theodore excused himself tactfully.
Arthur was sitting at the head of the table and sipping his coffee while Xavier was standing nearby.
Seeing that Jagoan had arrived, Arthur uttered, “Have a seat.”
Jagoan took a seat without hesitation.
Before he could utter a word, Arthur said, “If you’ve come here to ask for help, save it. I’m not going to step in and rescue your mother and your girlfriend. You ought to rely upon yourself if you wish to save them. If you aren’t capable of protecting them, perhaps having them locked up is the wiser option.”
Jagoan was flabbergasted.
I haven’t even said anything yet. How did Mr. Sanders know what was on my mind?
Indeed, Jagoan was there to ask Arthur if the latter could get the Warriors Alliance to set his girlfriend free and also convince the Deragon family to let his mother go.
However, Jagoan was feeling a little awkward now because Arthur had rejected him even before he could say anything.
“Mr. Sanders, since you’re not going to help me, could you please tell me how strong the Warriors Alliance is exactly? What should I do to beat them and rescue my girlfriend?” Jagoan had just realized that he knew too little about the Warriors Alliance.
After so many confrontations, I understand that I’ve been underestimating them. The men they deployed were all nothing but powerful.
Arthur kept silent and suddenly looked out the window. At that moment, his gaze looked inexplicably lost.
Jagoan felt a sense of despair wash over him when he saw Arthur’s expression.
Prior to that, Arthur had always appeared calm and unfathomable. At that precise moment, however, it was as if Jagoan could tell what was on Arthur’s mind. Mr. Sanders looks helpless too.
After a long while, Arthur regained his composure and took a sip of his coffee. “You shouldn’t only focus on the Warriors Alliance. Your true enemy is way scarier than them…”
With that, Arthur stood up and left the main hall. Meanwhile, Jagoan was left perplexed as he watched Arthur leave.
Jagoan had no idea what Arthur meant.
Why is my true enemy scarier than the Warriors Alliance? Who’s my true enemy?
While Jagoan was still in a daze, Xavier walked up to him and took out a charm. The writings on the charm were written with a cinnabar rosary. However, Jagoan had no idea what they meant.
