Now that his mother’s life was in danger, there was only one path ahead that he could take. No matter how difficult it was, he would brace it.
If something bad were to happen to his mother, he would spend the rest of his life in regret.
Lil Hyde fell silent. He could feel Zayn’s emotions. Moreover, he had a mother too, so he could fully comprehend Zayn’s feelings.
“Alright, I’ll tell you…” said Lil Hyde softly with a slightly sorrowful and helpless gaze in his eyes. He looked at Zayn as if he was looking at a man already hanging by a thread.
However, there was nothing he could do to stop Zayn and he could not reject Zayn either.
Zayn cracked a smile.
In truth, he was well aware that his trip would be filled with so much danger that it was equivalent to him having the slimmest chance of survival.
However, he had to do it even if that was the case, he had no other choice.
Since that was the case, he could only accept the circumstances.
He was relieved to finally learn the address of Sicut In Caelo’s address from Lil Hyde.
Noticing how dejected Lil Hyde looked, he smiled and said, “Why do you look so dejected, man? Don’t you have any confidence in me? I’m a perfect-class master fighter at the very least. Even your Southern Highlord is not my match.”
Lil Hyde looked at Zayn, shook his head, and said, “Sir, you don’t understand. You have no idea how powerful Caelum is. It’s fine if you hadn’t killed Raiden, but now that you have, Caelum bears a deep grudge against you that can’t be resolved.”
“Since you have yet to become an unbeatable fighter yet, you’re bound to die if you choose to fight Caelum now!”
Lil Hyde’s expression was solemn beyond comparison. There was fear and respect in his gaze even when he mentioned Caelum as if he was describing an extremely terrifying monster.
Zayn patted Lil Hyde’s shoulder and reassured carefreely, “Don’t worry, I’ll be fine.”
Lil Hyde’s lips moved. He was about to say something but could not bring himself to say so in the end. It was useless for him to say anything more at this point, thus he forced a smile. “I hope so too.”
Zayn understood Lil Hyde’s thinking, but he did not comment further anymore.
He was confident in himself not because he was swelled up with pride or because he was going to fight against Caelum by force, but due to what Caelum told him on Mount Roi in the end.
He had a feeling that perhaps The Saint was not hostile against him. In fact, he even felt an ineffable intimacy with The Saint.
He had never seen The Saint’s true self, of course, but he only speculated this. However, it was worthy for him to give this a try as long as he was not condemned to die.
After leaving the cafe, Zayn returned to his home. If he was determined to do this, he would not hide it from Faye, as well as Shaelyn anymore.
They had a right to know about this matter and they should also take this as Zayn’s way of briefing them on subsequent affairs.
However, Zayn did not announce to them at once. He called Sean, Gordon, and Luke for a meeting first.
As he looked at his three experienced subordinates’ confused expressions, he went straight to the point and said, “I’m going to pay a visit to the Sicut In Caelo headquarters. It’s possible that there will be danger, and if I don’t come back, I shall leave Larson Group to all of you.”
When Zayn’s voice faded away, they were astounded at once, feeling at a loss for words.
In the end, it was Luke who responded first by giving a forced chuckle. “Mr. Larson, you must be kidding, right? Why would you pay a visit to the headquarters of Sicut In Caelo for no reason?”
Sean echoed, “That’s right, that’s right. We’re not on good terms with Caelum now, so it would be inappropriate for you to visit the headquarters of Sicut In Caelo.”
Gordon said, “Pfft, you must be fooling with us, Mr. Larson.”
However, Zayn’s speech sent a shiver down their spines. “I’m notjoking. I’m telling the truth. The three of you have been working for me the longest, and you are my most trusted people. If I don’t contact you within a week, I believe that I won’t be coming back anymore.”
“By then, the Larson Group will depend on your leadership… Don’t interrupt me when I’m talking. Let me finish first.”
Upon hearing Zayn’s remark, Sean, who was planning on interrupting him originally, could only hold his tongue and listen to Zayn first.
