Meanwhile, at Ryosuke’s mansion, Jagoan and Fandor were lounging in a luxurious hot spring.
Placed beside Fandor were a few bottles of fine wine, while Jagoan was accompanied by two young girls who were gently massaging him.
“Fandor, do you think Jagoan can defeat that Kawano?” Jagoan asked worriedly.
After all, Jagoan wasn’t familiar with the samurais from Jetroina, so he wasn’t sure if Jagoan could win.
“Don’t worry. If my guess is right, Kawano should be dead after enduring one strike from Jagoan. They should be back soon.” Fandor leisurely sipped on his wine.
Right after he finished saying that, Jagoan and Ryosuke returned.
“Dad…” Seeing Ryosuke, Yuri hurriedly stepped forward. “Dad, how did it go?”
“Master killed those people, including Kawano,” Ryosuke replied excitedly.
“Master?” Yuri was caught by surprise.
“That‘s right. From now on, Mr. Chance will be the Watanabe family’s master. Members of the Watanabe family must unconditionally obey his orders from now on,” Ryosuke said.
She gazed at Jagoan‘s back in astonishment.
Jagoan merely kept quiet. He wasn’t interested in becoming the Watanabe family’s master. Perhaps he would never come to Jetroina again after this time.
Jagoan strode to the backyard of the mansion. He couldn’t help but chuckle when he saw Fandor and Jagoan enjoying the time of their lives soaking in the hot spring, not to mention there were even two girls serving Jagoan.
Noticing Jagoan, Jagoan hastily got up and dismissed the two girls.
“Jagoan, how did it go? Were you able to beat Kawano?” he asked.
“One hit was all it took,” Jagoan answered nonchalantly.
“Well, what did I say? Dealing with Kawano won’t take more than one move,” Fandor chirped.
“Mr. Jagoan, you should get ready. We’re going back soon.”
Jagoan planned to return to the country. Now that Asuka was dead, he wanted to go back and think of a way to save Jagoan. After all, rescuing Jagoan took precedence over everything else.
The trip to Jetroina had allowed Jagoan to advance to the level of a Martial Arts Saint, which gave him even more confidence in liberating Jagoan.
“We’re going back so soon?” Jagoan was stunned.
“That‘s right…” Jagoan nodded.
Despite his reluctance, Jagoan had no choice but to acquiesce to Jagoan’s order. However, when Ryosuke heard Jagoan was leaving, he knelt in front of him with a thud.
“Master, please help the Watanabe family break free from Thousand Crane Shrine’s control…”
Ryosuke knew that although the other members of the Watanabe family had been eliminated and no one could threaten his position as the head of the family anymore, he reckoned the shrine would never let him go.
After Jagoan left, the shrine would undoubtedly trouble him. By then, he figured his family might suffer a worse fate.
Jagoan glanced at Ryosuke expressionlessly. “Helping you kill Kawano is my repayment for the snow lotus you gave me… I have no obligation to assist you in wiping out Thousand Crane Shrine now, nor do I have the time to spare.”
“Master, the Watanabe family is willing to be in your service forever and offer tribute to you in the form of resources every year.” Ryosuke groveled at Jagoan’s feet.
“Jagoan, I think you should stay… The resources owned by Thousand Crane Shrine are far more abundant than these martial arts families. Besides, each shrine has its own deity. I figure you should be interested in acquiring the power gathered within those deities,” Fandor persuaded Jagoan while picking up his wine glass.
Jagoan shot a quick look at Fandor and contemplated for a few moments before nodding. “All right…”
Ryosuke was overjoyed to see Jagoan agree.
That night, Jagoan lay on his bed, his mind occupied with ways he could rescue Jagoan.
At that moment, soft footsteps sounded.
Jagoan sat up at once, only to see the door being pushed open. The next second, Yuri entered, her body barely covered by clothing.
