Even Elijah’s generals and men kneeled down in front of them.
The Jones family was stunned by the sight and stared at them in shock. What’s going on? What’s up with Elijah?
“Please don’t do this, my lord. The Jones family isn’t worthy of it!” Michael exclaimed. He nearly fell onto his knees at the sight of this.
What on earth does Elijah mean by this? Is this… another trap?
“Mr. Jones, I was in the wrong. This is the greatest mistake of my life! I came here to apologize and return the hostages!”
Elijah then raised a hand and his men released Mia and the others.
Mia and the other captives were stunned. They had been in the car this entire time, unaware of what was going on outside.
The moment they got out, they realized that they had been sent back to the Jones family! What’s going on? Where’s Levi? Where did he go after he got off the car? Is he in danger?
Mia was worried for his safety. What’s going on?
“My lord, can you please explain all of this? I’m afraid I don’t understand what’s going on,” Michael asked.
The rest of the Jones family were equally perplexed. What is going on? Elijah has not only returned the hostages, but also kneeled down to apologize to us. They were bewildered by the sudden change in events.
“Ah! I was too arrogant and got punished by someone while lording all over Erudia!” Elijah sighed.
“In the future, I won’t restrict the Jones family from doing business in my turf. In fact, if there’s anything you need help with, feel free to look for me! Please put in a good word with that man so that I can survive…” Elijah pleaded while he was on his knees.
Even if Levi let me off this time, he won’t go easy if I offend him another time. I need to get his grandfather to put in a good word for me.
“Huh? Who? I’m afraid you lost me here,” Michael queried.
The others were equally confused. Who would Elijah be so scared of? Does such a person even exist?
“Mr. Jones, you don’t have to keep this a secret from me. This time, it was the God of War who stepped forward to help the Jones family. Several hundreds of my men died and I was nearly crippled as well! Please forgive me, Mr. Jones. I didn’t know that the Jones family was related so closely to the God of War! Otherwise, I’d never have dared to lay hands on the Jones family!” Elijah cried.
He had never expected that Michael was the God of War’s grandfather!
“God of War? You mean the highly revered man in Erudia, the God of War?” Michael questioned.
“That’s right! Everyone fears the God of War across the lands!”
“My lord, are you saying that the Jones family has connections to the God of War?” Michael repeated his question.
“That’s right! The God of War came down personally and even mobilized the Five Great Wars Regiment and the Cavalry Regiment! I got the fright of my life!” Elijah explained.
“Why don’t we know about it then?”
The Jones family stared at each other in shock. Since when have we known anyone related to the God of War?
“Alright, Mr. Jones, I’ll be leaving now that I’ve returned the hostages. He might be coming for me at any moment!” Elijah brought his men and prepared to leave.
“Hold on a moment, my lord. Could you tell us how the God of War is related to us?” Michael queried.
“That’s right! Tell us, my lord!”
