Dick nodded strenuously and said in a deep voice, “I invited Sergeant Larson yesterday so we could watch out for Axton’s antics!”
The eyes of Joe, Liam, and others lit up. They asked eagerly, “Did Sergeant Larson agree to come?”
Dick nodded and said, “He agreed to come.”
“So, why isn’t Sergeant Larson here yet?”
Dick scratched his head. He felt rather gloomy too because Zayn had yet to show up.
Over at Axton’s side, he appeared to be running out of patience. He refused to believe that there was a skilled fighter in Insurgent Trifecta. From his point of view, it was all Dick and the others’ grand bluff.
“Hmph, I still had some respect for Insurgent Trifecta before this and assumed that your organization was open and aboveboard in handling matters. Judging by the situation now, your organization is only fishing for fame!” Axton immediately said with a sneer.
His tone heavily tainted with contempt, “I can’t help acknowledging that Insurgent Trifecta used to be respectable five years ago. Now, it’s nothing but an empty shell.”
“You claimed that we’re nothing in the presence of your Sergeant Larson and you claimed he’s so very formidable. Have him come to us if you have the guts then. I’d like to see if he’s capable of matching my iron fist!”
A burly man sniggered upon hearing Axton’s remarks and said sarcastically, “Lawrence, do you really believe them?”
“If this Larson guy is truly so great, he would’ve showed up from the start instead of cowering like a chicken, right? I think that it’s just a lie they made up.”
“Hah-hah, you don’t say? Insurgent Trifecta is nothing impressive and unable to take even a single blow. We shall return and inform the superior that Insurgent Trifecta is weak and cowardly.”
“They’re utterly incapable of bearing the great responsibility of organizing the Martial Arts Cup.”
The people from Yando City were ridiculing them without showing them the slightest respect. It made Joe and the others clenched their teeth in anger, their faces terrifyingly gloomy.
The Martial Arts Cup was a very rare opportunity that would allow them to render a meritorious service to the country if they could organize it well. If they could pull it off successfully, they could possibly return Insurgent Trifecta to its prior glory!
Nevertheless, at that moment, they were furious yet helpless when they were being ridiculed by Axton because they were not as powerful as he was!
Byleth said in a deep voice, “Call Sergeant Larson and have him come over so he can soften the edge of these lads!”
His remark got the approval of the others. They were extremely eager to have Zayn come over at once. Zayn would certainly be able to teach Axton and his goons a good lesson when he got here.
Dick nodded. He took out his phone and dialed Zayn’s number…
However, he got a busy signal. His face turned pale. “Sergeant Larson’s number can’t be reached…”
Upon hearing that, Joe and the others trembled and expressed their despair.
