Levi couldn’t have cared less previously. However, when he heard that Elijah was in South City, he became angry.
How can we allow this mad warlord to wreak havoc as he pleases in Erudia? Does he have a death wish?
“What?” Mia exclaimed.
The bodyguards appeared to be astounded as well because none of them thought Levi would go with Mia.
Meanwhile, in Sapphire Villa, Elijah appeared to be beaming at the successful transfer of 100 billion to his account, but he was actually worried because Erudia was a dangerous place for mercenaries like him.
He would be in trouble if the military discovered his presence in South City.
However, he was willing to take the risk to get an extra fifty billion.
“Where are they? Bring them to me quickly!” He urged.
Soon enough, Levi, Mia, and eight other Joneses were sent to Elijah.
Michael and a few others smirked at the sight of Levi surrendering himself.
He must have come to his senses finally! He will never be able to fight our men anyway.
Lust glinted in Elijah’s eyes when he laid eyes on Mia. Once he made sure of Levi and Mia’s identity, he nodded satisfactorily.
“Good. Seize them!”
Michael and the others only dared heave a sigh of relief after Elijah and his soldiers left Sapphire Villa. “We may have lost fifty billion today, but at least we are finally free from more trouble!”
The only thing the Joneses were upset about was the money. Except for Mia’s parents, none of them cared the least about the fate of the Joneses who were taken by Elijah as captives.
Mia’s parents were the only ones weeping.
“How can you be so ruthless, dad? They’re your grandchildren!” Mia’s parents wailed at the thought of never seeing Mia again.
“Don’t be such a crybaby! They should be proud to be able to contribute to the family! It’s a glory of a lifetime!” Michael stated as if his decision of sending Levi and Mia away was an honorable one.
On the other hand, Elijah ordered his men to speed up.
Leaving Erudia immediately was the only way to avoid the possible dangers and ease his tension.
Positioning himself in front of the captives, he scoffed, “All of you belong to me from today onwards!”
Mia and the others cowered and avoided Elijah’s gaze except for Levi. He was the only one that stared right into the warlord’s eyes bravely.
Elijah was puzzled by Levi’s calmness. “You… You’re not afraid of me?” he inquired curiously.
A laugh escaped from Levi’s mouth. “Why should I be afraid of you?”
“Of course you should be! The Joneses always cower when they’re around me! Look at them!” He pointed at Mia and the others who were shivering in fright.
“Are you really not afraid of me?” Elijah asked again.
“I’m never afraid of anyone else. Instead, everyone should be afraid of me,” Levi chuckled.
“Ha! Are you saying that I should be afraid of you?” Elijah snorted.
