“Forgive me. I talked too much,” apologized Shadow, who was actually trying to hint at Michael.
Unfortunately, Michael thought too little of Levi to ever expect him to be anyone important.
To show their new status, the Joneses returned to South Hampton with the two banners held high and flapping in the wind.
For the time being, the Black family was afraid to go after Levi while Zoey got busy with work.
Besides working on a fifty-billion project, Oriental Star Group had recently released a big-budget movie that starred Helena.
The movie became a legend in the industry for breaking the record when it made more than one billion in just three days.
Iris entered Zoey’s office when Zoey was still busy at work.
“Huh? What’s this?” Iris could not help but pick up the dark green box she saw on the desk.
“Can I take a look?”
After opening the box, Iris was curious to see a gold medal inside.
“What does ‘King of the West’ mean? Could it be referring to the king of the Western Region?”
“He led the attack that defeated Wheldrake, and it was all over the news,” stated Iris casually, but Sylas, who was just beside them, was shocked to see Iris figuring it out so quickly.
Does that mean we’re exposed?
Zoey raised her head and chuckled in response, “This is a wedding gift from a good friend of Levi’s. I don’t even know what ‘King of the West’ means.”
She had also heard the news, but there was no way she could have known that Ezra was the King of the West.
He was drinking with Levi the night the battle happened. How could it be him on the battlefield?
It’s not like Ezra can teleport!
“A friend of Levi’s, you said? Must be my mistake then,” responded Iris naturally.
There’s no way that any friend of Levi’s could’ve been in the Western Region battle. Unless he’s a prisoner there.
Zoey continued to joke, “Like you, Sylas almost mistook Levi’s friend to be some Chief.”
“I know, right? I almost thought this piece of gold is a symbol of the King of the West!” exclaimed Iris before putting the medal back onto the desk.
Seeing how Iris was convinced, Sylas breathed a sigh of relief.
That’s not just any piece of gold but a mark of the King of War, who commands the millions of troops in the Western Region!
With that medal, Zoey can summon the army of the Western Region to protect herself any time she wants.
Sylas could not help reminding Zoey, “Ms. Lopez, I think you better put that box away before you lose it.”
Her words quickly attracted both Zoey’s and Iris’ attention.
“What do you mean, Sylas? Is the box special in any way?” asked Zoey.
Suddenly reminded of how strange Sylas acted the day they met Ezra, Zoey could not help but notice something off about Sylas.
