The meeting lasted a long time with the attending members not just from Insurgent Trifecta but also from Insurgent Duofecta and Insurgent Unifecta.
It showed just how seriously their superior was taking that year’s Martial Arts Cup.
What a waste that Rheasia was still at such a great disadvantage.
There were no other candidates that they could send other than Zayn, but their superior did want him registered as a contestant. If that was the case, it would be almost impossible for them to win.
However, since their superior had already made the decision, it was inappropriate for Zayn to comment further. He believed his superior had their own concerns as well.
Perhaps they would be able to find a perfect-class master fighter from elsewhere to represent the country in time.
Dick found Zayn after they walked out of the meeting room and invited him to another gathering.
“Sergeant Larson, there’s an important dinner party tomorrow. Yando City Will be sending over the officers from their side. Let’s entertain them together, what do you think?”
The entertainment mission was assigned to Dick. Zayn was made aware of it during the meeting, but since the man had extended the invitation to him, he could not bring himself to reject it either. Thus, he nodded in agreement.
Dick was overjoyed and said, “I’ll be at ease knowing that you’ll be my partner for the dinner party, Sergeant Larson.”
Zayn said in a slightly puzzled tone, “Sergeant Cheney, could it be that a rival of yours will be among the people from Yando City attending the party?”
Based on Zayn’s understanding of Dick, he would never invite him to a party like that without reason. Seeing Dick’s earlier behavior, Zayn knew that he was invited to the party to solve an issue.
Dick gave him a thumbs-up and said with admiration, “You’re as sharp as ever, Sergeant Larson. I knew I wouldn’t be able to hide it from you.”
Heaving a sigh, he said, “This particular guest from Yando City is an enemy of mine from the past… Frankly, I wouldn’t call us enemies, but there was a conflict between us when we were young. Now that we’re meeting each other, it’s inevitable…”
At this point, he let out two forced chuckles. Zayn smiled but did not inquire any further.
He was no fool, so he naturally understood what Dick meant. The guest was more powerful than Dick. If he were to attend the party by himself, he would be humiliated, but it would be a different situation with Zayn by his side.
He did not have any important matters to attend to the next day anyhow. He smiled and agreed to participate right away.
Dick was relieved that Zayn had accepted his offer.
At night the next day, Zayn showed up to the dinner party at the location provided to him by Dick.
He heard that the guest from Yando City was a big shot with a high status and a respectable position.
The top personnel from all of Insurgent Trifecta were very serious and nervous. The welcoming ceremony was so grand that even the director, Joe, was present to greet the guest personally.
Zayn had not attended the opening because he was picking up Faye after work. He headed to the party leisurely after he dropped her off.
He had just arrived at the hotel when he heard someone complaining.
“F*ck, these people from Yando City are really arrogant! They just ignored Director Pennywise! Who do they think they are?!!”
“Sigh… You don’t say? He’s a big shot and his official rank is even higher than Director Pennywise’s. Plus, he’s from Yando City. He”d definitely put on airs when he comes here, right?”
