The Invitation of Apprenticeship was similar to the Apprenticeship Application. The only difference was that the Invitation of Apprenticeship indicated an elder’s interest in a particular junior. It was an invitation Ietter to express their interest in accepting the junior in question as their disciple.
Jagoan never imagined that Old Mr. Bane would send him an Invitation of Apprenticeship.
With Old Mr. Bane’s status and influence, the slightest hint that he was looking for a disciple would be enough for thousands of young martial arts practitioners from Bainbridge alone to rush forward in a frenzy.
The moment Old Mr. Bane sent Jagoan an Invitation of Apprenticeship, he was indirectly using his own reputation to promote and elevate Jagoan’s status in society. His actions were a symbol of his attitude toward Jagoan and a sign of his sincerity.
After Jagoan finished performing the ceremony of apprenticeship in the direction of the Invitation of Apprenticeship, he respectfully took the Invitation of Apprenticeship from Roxanne.
At this moment, Thaddeus’ followers began mocking Jagoan again.
“Wow, you can find all kinds of people everywhere nowadays. I can’t believe somebody wants trash who can’t even achieve 660 pounds with a single punch. Is he so desperate for a disciple?”
“Unbelievable. How can a person with such a poor eye for people become a master? Aren’t they afraid of misleading their disciples?”
“One who dares to accept as a disciple, and one who dares to worship as a master. Who among them has any shred of reason and common sense?”
As soon as those words rang out, the crowd roared with laughter.
Roxanne had always been sickly as a child, so she rarely appeared in public. Therefore, most people could not recognize her identity at a glance.
So, her expression turned extremely dark and gloomy upon listening to such unbearable insults.
“Shut up! Since when have the affairs of the Bane Family been any of your business?”
“How dare a member of the mere Bane Family be so arrogant? Even if you came from the Bane…”
At that point, their voices trailed off.
The Bane Family?
The most influential family in Cathay?
After a moment of consideration, they couldn’t help shuddering in fear. Their expressions immediately turned pale in horror.
This is a disaster!
Thaddeus, who had originally planned to watch his followers from behind, instantly came to his senses at this moment. No wonder her back seemed so familiar to me.
With that thought in mind, he hastily walked over and kicked his followers in the rear.
When he caught sight of Roxanne, his eyes brightened with interest.
l can’t believe it!
Only a few years had passed since we last met, but she has gotten so lovely and gorgeous during that time!
Unfortunately, now was not the time for such nonsensical thoughts. He dispelled the distracting thoughts in his head and began scolding his followers.
“Are you blind? How dare you slander the Bane Family?” Then, he quickly made his way to the front. “Miss Bane, I’m extremely sorry. These foolish idiots have offended you. Hey, hurry up and apologize to Miss Bane!”
This woman was the direct descendant of the Bane Family. The elders of the Lullaby Family would never forgive him if they were implicated by the actions of his followers and offended the other party.
As soon as the followers behind him heard those words, they were so frightened that they practically crawled over to Roxanne and began apologizing desperately with terrified expressions.
“Miss Bane, we were blind and foolish. Please think of us as mere dogs barking and spare our lives…”
Their eyes were filled with pleading looks.
Yet, the angry Roxanne ignored these small fries and focused her attention on Thaddeus instead.
“Hmph! Thaddeus, these people are your followers, aren’t they? I will be telling my grandfather about everything that happened today. I dare say you are the only ones in Bainbridge who dares to insult my grandfather.”
As soon as Thaddeus heard those words, his expression became bitter.
He wanted to explain and defend himself, but she turned away and completely ignored him.
When the crowd saw the change in Thaddeus’ attitude, they finally understood this beautiful woman’s identity. Thus, they quickly scattered in all directions lest she took notice of them. At the same time, the looks they gave Jagoan were now filled with fear and trepidation.
Old Mr. Bane was an influential figure who could shake the entire Bainbridge with a shake of his leg. If Jagoan were to worship Old Mr. Bane as his master, then his status and identity would rise as a result.
The crowd couldn’t help moving faster when they recalled the insults they hurled earlier.
As for Thaddeus’ followers, they wanted to flee too. It was unfortunate that they could not do so under Roxanne’s contemptuous gaze.
