“Just relax. You’ll get your project soon enough. However, you should suggest to the Black family that even though the project will land in their laps, you should still be the one who’s in charge,” stated Levi.
Zoey found herself unable to look away from Levi. It was as if he had some superpower. Each time he stated something or made a claim, her problems would always just resolve magically on their own. If she didn’t know better, she’d think that he was the one taking care of things for her.
However, this time she couldn’t bring herself to believe him, especially when the boss of Morris Group wasn’t going to help him out. Thus, she was very curious to see just what Levi would do.
Levi noticed the doubt in her eyes, but he didn’t say anything more on the matter. He decided he would just go ahead and delegate a project to her during the investment conference.
Recently, there were two major events that were keeping South City abuzz. The first was the investment conference, and the second was the arrival of Ezra Williamson from the Western Region.
When Ezra made a big show of his upcoming arrival to South City, Levi immediately knew what he was up to.
Soon enough, Levi received a call from Ezra.
“Ezra, you rascal. You’re trying to pull one over on your enemies by being so high-profile, aren’t you?”
Ezra chuckled. “I really can’t get anything past you, boss! Our Warzone had been battling Wheldrake, and it has been particularly difficult to break through their defense line. So I’m being intentionally loud with my whereabouts to attract their attention. Once the Beasts join us, I can then circle back and catch them by surprise,” grinned Ezra sheepishly.
This was the main reason why Ezra wanted everyone to know that he was going to return to South City.
“Looks like you’ve learned well from me.”
“Aww, shucks, boss! I still have a lot more to learn from you,” said Ezra humbly.
“I’ll see you soon then!” Levi was quite eager to see Ezra too. He was not only one of his soldiers, but was like a brother to him too.
“Hehe! By the way, I have a present for you, boss. I’ve gotten quite a few goodies from Wheldrake,” grinned Ezra.
“Oh? As long as it’s not women from Wheldrake!”
“Haha! Then what kind of women do you want, boss? Just say the word and I’ll grab you a dozen!”
If Sylas ever found out that the Chief she revered so much was actually such a person, she’d probably be shocked speechless.
At the end of the day, once Levi, Ezra, and the rest of these ruthless warriors removed their armor, they were still just ordinary people. They were someone else’s son, and some were even a father to others.
But they donned their military uniforms and braved the frontlines just to protect this land. It was because of heroic people like them that others had the chance to lead a peaceful life.
Speaking of Sylas, she had gone off to join a veterans’ gathering. Unexpectedly, Levi had also received an invitation as a guest. It was mainly the comrades from when he first joined the military.
But they lost touch once Levi was reassigned to another squad, so none of them knew of his real identity.
