Thaddeus was filled with fury at this moment. Even though he had lowered his pride to such a great extent, Roxanne had still completely ignored him anyway.
“Jagoan, next week is my grandmother’s birthday party. Now that you are my grandfather’s disciple, you should also attend the birthday party.”
After Jagoan listened to Roxanne’s words, he nodded in agreement.
Old Mr. Bane had previously taught him the first twelve moves of the Bane Family’s mixed martial arts. Nevertheless, he could only be considered Old Mr. Bane’s disciple by verbal agreement. To put his position in simpler terms, he was nothing more than an unofficial disciple.
With the issuance of the Invitation of Apprenticeship, his status became completely different.
Once the ceremony of apprenticeship was completed in the future, he would be part of the Bane Family’s mixed martial arts practitioners. He would then receive the protection of his master, inherit the martial arts of his master, and carry forward the spirit of his master.
Needless to say, it was necessary for him to attend Old Madam Bane’s birthday party in person.
“Please wait until I finish my registration. Let me treat you to dinner later as thanks for taking this trip in person.”
Roxanne lowered her head and made a soft sound of agreement.
Meanwhile, Jagoan walked over to the registration counter.
When he took out the recommendation letter from the Martial League and handed the document to the registration staff, the other party was shocked.
Anybody who held this letter was a seeded player in the competition. Moreover, these people were bound to have a bright future in the Martial League as long as they were not overly arrogant or unlucky.
An insignificant member of the registration staff like himself could not afford to offend such a person.
I’m so glad! only showed a displeased expression earlier and did not mouth off with the rest of the b*stards.
With that thought in mind, he hastily helped Jagoan finish the registration as quickly as possible.
“Mr. Larson, this is your entry number. Please keep the number well…”
After he finished the tasks on hand, he had no plans to hang around and left with the rest of his companions. On the other hand, Thaddeus stood frozen in place and glared resentfully at the backs of Jagoan and Roxanne.
When Jagoan and his companions left the venue, Roland and Easton abandoned Jagoan outside the venue because there was not enough space in the car to accommodate everybody.
“Miss Bane, can you please send Jagoan back?”
“Yeah, we’ll be counting on you. I’m afraid we need to return to Renew Pharmaceuticals for an urgent matter, so we won’t be joining you for dinner. By the way, Jagoan, generosity is a virtue when having dinner with a woman.”
“Jagoan, dont worry about Renew Pharmaceuticals. We’ll be there on your behalf, so you can stay out as late as you want without worry. If you’re staying out overnight, don’t forget about protection.”
After they joked around, the rest of them drove away in their car.
Roxanne, who was born into an influential and wealthy family, had never experienced such frivolous jokes before. In particular, the phrase ‘Don’t forget about protection’ bothered her greatly. She seemed to understand the innuendo behind those words but also seemed ignorant of the true meaning at the same time.
When Jagoan turned to look at Roxanne, she was blushing furiously.
“Don’t pay them any mind. They’ve always been like this.”
She lowered her head until her chin was practically buried in her chest and spoke softly in a voice that resembled the buzzing of a mosquito, “Yeah, it’s fine…”
Then, she snuck a glance at him.
Just as they were about to head to the restaurant, Jagoan’s mobile phone began to ring.
“Matt, I’m in Bainbridge. I’ll give you an opportunity to pick me up from the airport. I hope you’ll make good use of the opportunity.”
The other party hung up without waiting for him to reply.
Jagoan glanced at the caller ID, and his expression changed drastically.
Why did she come to Bainbridge at this time?
“Miss Bane, I’m very sorry. But can you please give me a ride?”
Roxane nodded and told her driver about their change of plans, “Of course, it’s not a problem. Mr. Bard, please take us to Bainbridge Airport.”
Although she was secretly disappointed, she pretended to be indifferent and agreed to his request.
She had originally wanted to take advantage of their private time to obtain the answers to her doubts. Alas, considering his anxious expression, it would seem that she would not have the chance to obtain the answers to her questions today.
As soon as Jagoan turned around, a murderous aura seeped out from his eyes.
Who on Earth is trying to drag Brittany into the maelstrom that is brewing in Bainbridge?
