Michael’s heart was racing in excitement, but he tried his best to contain his emotion.
We’ll soon be one of the wealthiest family in Erudia!
The other Joneses were almost just as excited as Michael was.
What they did not know was that it was all because of Levi. Otherwise, they would not even have made it past the gate.
Hearing that Alfie was the leader of the Iron Brigade, Michael had to ask, “Mr. Steele, how’s Anson doing in the Iron Brigade?”
Alfie hesitated with his answer, for even though Anson was but a regular soldier, he was the uncle of the God of War.
“He’s excellent! You can say he’s one of Iron Brigade’s most important members,” answered Alfie awkwardly.
The scene was similar to when the Black family asked him about Russell.
“Great! That’s wonderful to hear!” Michael was laughing out loud with satisfaction while those at the South City Warzone looked perplexed.
What a strange reaction. His grandson is the God of War!
Michael and the other Joneses were taken to the reception room, where they received the highest level of hospitality.
Throughout their stay, they were accompanied by Mike personally.
Michael was overjoyed to see how well they were taken care of because that spoke to Anson’s level of importance.
“That boy should’ve told us how important he is in the army!” mumbled Michael to himself.
“Mr. Jones, the South City Warzone would like to present a banner to the Jones family.” notified Mike before ordering his man, “Bring the banner!”
Soon, someone came into the room with a banner, and on it was ‘The pillar of the nation.’
When The Joneses saw it, they were so excited that they could no longer remain seated.
“This is for us?” asked Michael in delight as he did not expect to receive a banner after giving one to Ezra.
“On my command. Salute!” ordered Mike to his man on the scene.
“The son of the Jones family has served well to protect our nation!”
“Thank you! I’m very proud of him!” responded Michael with a burst of hearty laughter.
The other Joneses were just as exhilarated to receive such an honor.
We have a pillar of the nation in our family!
The Jones family will never be the same again because we can now rival the top family in South Hampton.
The only problem was that Michael and Mike were not referring to the same person.
Mike was presenting the banner because of Levi while Michael thought it was because of Anson.
Nonetheless, both sides were happy with the outcome.
On top of that, Mike made them a promise, “From now on, if the Jones family needs anything, all you have to do is ask.”
