“However, I reckon that the people in our circle will notice that something bad has happened to me if I don’t show up over a long time. I’m certain that they will attempt to strike at the Larson Group.”
“By then, you must sell off the shares at a discounted rate in advance and give my portion to my family members. You must also look for somewhere to hide so that you can stay out of the limelight temporarily.”
Zayn’s expression was very serious, he did not appear to be joking at all.
Yet, the three of them felt a chill in their hearts and were overwhelmed with melancholy after hearing that.
One should know that Zayn had never briefed them on subsequent affairs like this when he was planning on seizing the ambrosia fruit on Mount Leo previously.
On the other hand, he chose to brief them this time, so they could imagine the extent of the danger he would be facing this time. They knew that Zayn would only have a slim chance of survival and that it was far more dangerous than the previous time!
Still, they could not figure out why Zayn would look for trouble when he was already in his current position?
Was he doing that because he had nothing else to do?
Noticing their silence, Zayn did not interrupt them and allowed them to digest the knowledge slowly.
After a long while, Luke said, “Mr. Larson, is it so important that you must go to the Sicut In Caelo’s headquarters this time?”
“Is there a chance that you’ll come back alive?”
Luke nodded strenuously and said in determination. “Well, I will wait for your return, Mr. Larson!”
Sean and Gordon understood that Zayn had already made up his mind and simply had to go.
Even though their hearts were filled with confusion and recalcitrance, they did not comment further either. Instead, they prayed for Zayn to return alive.
The news came so unexpectedly to them. They were utterly unprepared for this, so they were still in shock when they walked out of the office.
They exchanged glances with one another before heaving a long sigh. They were always on tenterhooks when they worked for an employer like this.
However, Zayn had always treated them well. Since he had already made up his mind, they would execute his command like loyal soldiers because they were his subordinates.
Next, Zayn called up Shaelyn and told her about the situation similarly.
When he was done, the other end of the call was quiet for a long time.
About two minutes passed and Zayn had not spoken either, but he continued listening,
“I’m still going to tell you the same thing: I’m yours and I’ll always be yours, in life or in death.”
“If you’re not coming back for real, don’t leave so soon and wait for me to meet you at the end of life,” Shaelyn spoke in a tone that sounded very determined yet was also sentimental.
Zayn’s breathing quickened for a moment, but he did not waste time making small talk either.
He answered in all seriousness, “Alright.”
Before he hung up the call, Zayn apologized softly. The last task for him was to tell Faye about this, but he found it the hardest to speak to her.
In truth, he could almost figure out Faye’s reaction…
No matter how hard it was to bring himself to speak, he had to do it anyhow.
Just as he was about to call Faye, she coincidentally called him a few seconds before he did so.
He picked up the call and immediately heard Faye’s pleasant, sweet voice. “Hello, Zayn. I bought two tickets to the movies. Will you join me?”
