He could no longer afford to let Levi roam free because everyone in South Hampton knew Levi was a bastard by now. As long as he was free to move around, he would remain a disgrace to the Jones family which they wanted to avoid. Their only plan was to imprison Levi permanently in the Jones residence and prevent him from ever stepping out.
Although people knew he had arrived at the Jones Residence, they would forget about his existence as long as he didn’t venture out. Therefore, the damage and impact he would cause the Joneses would be greatly reduced.
Michael had learned this tactic from someone else.
Levi’s mother, Emma Jones, was permanently imprisoned and wasn’t allowed to leave that place. Until now, they had kept her in captivity for almost thirty years. She was locked up since the day Levi was born.
Prior to this, Mia would definitely worry for him.
Not anymore. She found out about Levi’s identity when the prominent Goel family acknowledged him as their master. She knew the Joneses were powerless against him. If there was any conflict, he would definitely not be at the losing end. In fact, she hoped Levi could teach the Jones family a lesson.
Levi laughed. “I can move anywhere that the sun shines and river flows. No one can stop me. Furthermore, there’s no cage that can stop me.”
“Just wait and see if we manage to keep you locked up.” Michael was dismissive of Levi’s boast.
He wanted to wait till after the anniversary meeting to torture him properly.
Michael had another idea. If he failed to imprison Levi, he would get Anson to take the bastard back to the military to be trained.
That way, it would be good for the Jones’ reputation and also remove Levi the troublemaker.
If the ten thousand warriors of the Iron Brigade knew about it, they would laugh until they dropped. To have a deserter bring the God of War back to camp to be trained was going to be a terrible joke.
At night, Levi gave Zoey a call. However, she was still angry and hung up on him.
Hmm? Why is Zoey behaving like that?
Levi realized the reason very quickly.
She must think that I have compromised with the Jones family for the sake of attending the anniversary meeting.
Zoey, you are mistaken! I don’t need to depend on the Joneses. At my command, the hundred prominent families in South Hampton would bow at my feet.
Levi smiled wryly.
They didn’t talk the whole night.
The next day, the Jones family anniversary meeting which was held once every decade began.
Levi and the Joneses arrived early at the Jones family’s ancestral home. Family members from all over Erudia and even those from overseas were present. The anniversary meeting was finally about to begin.
