Elijah was stunned.
He had assumed that Michael and the others knew Levi’s identity and were playing dumb, but their actions showed otherwise.
That’s right! His identity is a state secret. It won’t be surprising if his family doesn’t know about it! I can’t be the one to let them know either.
“I’ll just put it this way — the God of War has a close relationship with the Jones family and will continue protecting you as long as you are willing to accept him!”
Elijah then left Sapphire Villa with his men.
He fled Erudia, worried that Levi would change his mind.
“Is it really true that the God of War who defeated eighteen nations and triumphed over every battle is related to the Jones family?”
Michael remained doubtful of this.
“It has to be! Look at how frightened Elijah was! Who else could it be?”
“I heard that the God of War has retired and is currently in North Hampton.”
“But how is the God of War related to us though?” Michael frowned.
“Grandpa, you forgot about Uncle Anson!” Tyler reminded him.
Michael had seven children, and his youngest son, Anson, had joined the armed forces at a young age.
It was said that he was part of the special forces and his role was shrouded in secrecy. He had not returned home for five years. He was only allowed to call his family once a year, mostly to reassure them that he was still alive.
The rest of the family had given up on Anson and had not expected him to contribute much to the family. However, they did not expect him to be related to the God of War!
This was indeed a great surprise to the Jones family!
“That’s right! Anson told us last year that he was a part of the God of War’s Iron Brigade! I didn’t tell you guys this because it was a state secret. Being part of the Iron Brigade means that he reports directly to the God of War. He might be a general for all we know! The God of War must have stepped in for Anson’s sake!”
If the God of War himself helped Anson out, this must mean that he’s holding a very high rank!
Michael was overjoyed when he thought of that.
“The Jones family has the God of War as our backer! It’s finally time for the Jones family to rise now!”
The rest of the Jones family were thrilled as well. They had not expected the God of War of Erudia to help the Joneses.
“Anson is the pride and joy of the Jones family! We could all stand to learn from him!” everyone cheered.
On the other hand, Mia remained skeptical.
Something’s wrong. It feels like this has something to do with Levi.
“Where’s Levi?” Michael asked.
“He has probably escaped in the chaos!” someone suggested.
Wales scorned, “Mia, after how you’ve treated him as a relative, he’s fled in the face of danger and abandoned you!”
“No, you don’t understand…” Mia tried to explain.
“You’re no longer allowed to interact with Levi anymore! Otherwise, I won’t let you off!” Michael warned.
He then instructed Wallace, “Inform Levi that he’s now disowned! I, Michael Jones, do not acknowledge him as my grandson and he’s no longer allowed to call himself a part of the Jones family!”
Wallace and the others nodded, “That’s right! Now that the matter with Elijah is settled, he’s no longer of use to us! We won’t let him make use of the name of the Jones family any further!”
