Zoey thought Ezra meant that he and Levi came out of the same prison.
“Nice to meet you too. Please, sit. Have some tea, Sylas.”
Zoey was being very hospitable.
“Thank you, but I’m good. I have to go soon. Levi told me about the wedding, which I, unfortunately, can’t attend, but I have something for you.”
Ezra then took out an army-green box, and inside it was a gold medal inscribed with the words ‘King of the West.’
It was a symbolic medal, made of pure gold, awarded to the commander-in-chief of the Nine Warzones.
Zoey could see Ezra’s utmost sincerity when he gifted her with the medal.
“You should just take it. Ol’ Williamson here really wants you to have it,” advised Levi.
Not knowing the true value of the pure gold medal, Zoey took the medal from Ezra after thanking him.
Sylas was stunned at the sight of the medal handed over to Zoey.
In a certain sense, one could command the entire army of the Western Region with that medal, so that meant Zoey had an army in the palm of her hand.
After bidding Zoey goodbye, Levi and Ezra went to the city streets and sat down at a barbecue stall before Kirin and the others soon arrived.
It was a rare moment indeed for the brothers-in-arms to have such a leisure time together.
The moment Kirin saw Ezra, he started complaining about how Ezra was going to take the Beasts away from him.
“Don’t get your panties in a bunch! I’ll return them to you once I win the war. I’ll even add in some ladies from Wheldrake. How does that sound?” asked Ezra.
“Forget the ladies! You better bring them back unharmed. Not even a single hair lost!”
Kirin was treating the Beasts like a bunch of babies.
“Whatever you say. I’ll be in the battlefield myself by then, and I’ll die before I let anything happen to your boys.”
Ezra then downed his hard liquor.
“Now that’s what I want to hear! But you better make it back alive. Otherwise, who’s going to send my boys back to me?” toasted Kirin.
Looking at how the two were bickering, Levi could not help but let out a hearty laughter.
As much as the two liked to bicker like children, Levi knew that they would both give their lives to protect each other on the battlefield.
At that moment, a group of men appeared on the street with knives and sticks in their hands.
Watching them from the darkness was both Jennie and Logan in a wheelchair who wanted to exact their vengeance on Levi.
Logan swore to break Levi’s limbs and keep any doctor from treating them in time so that he would lose them forever.
The goal was to make sure Levi stay bedridden for the rest of his life.
As for the Black family, after Levi offended and angered them just a few days before, they expected nothing less to happen to Levi.
