After the party ended, Joe, Liam, and a few others intentionally walked over to express their gratitude to Zayn. Zayn waved his hand dismissively to indicate that they were too courteous as it was his duty to do so.
Next, Zayn got busy because the Martial Arts Cup was taking place in a month’s time. On the other hand, he had to follow through the entire process as one of the officers in charge of this event.
Moreover, more and more foreign skilled fighters began to enter the country as the date of the Martial Arts Cup approached. Their arrival in Guineve signified that the Insurgent Trifecta had to monitor them properly.
Zayn took some time off to head to Tael City so that he could spend time with Shaelyn for a couple of days. He was very pleased to see that Shaelyn was managing the business without any hiccups.
However, he suddenly received a call from an unknown number after returning to Waltz City from Tael City.
Zayn did not pick up the call at first, but he received three consecutive missed calls from this number immediately. Finally, he shifted his attention to the phone number. He discovered that the phone number was an eye-catching combination with six 8’s.
He pondered for a moment before picking up the call. “Hello?”
Not a sound could be heard coming from the other end. Zayn furrowed his brows. “I’m going to hang up if you don’t speak.”
The line remained silent.
Zayn hung up the call right away.
It did not take long before his phone rang again. It was still the same number calling.
Zayn knitted his brows once again. Generally, very few people knew his current number, and those people were mostly his close family and friends.
Moreover, he ensured that his privacy was top-notch by not connecting this number to his other accounts, so he barely received any spam calls. There was only one possibility of who this unknown caller could be.
Furthermore, the person was aware of his identity and was coming straight for him.
He pondered for a moment, then he picked up the call once again. This time, he did not speak but waited for the other end to speak.
The silence lasted for ten seconds before the voice said, “Is this Zayn Larson?”
It was a woman’s voice that sounded rather pleasant. To be more precise, it was the angelic voice of a beautiful woman.
Zayn replied, “Who’s there?”
The voice sounded rather familiar to Zayn. He felt as if he heard that voice before somewhere but could not recall it within a short time.
“Is that really you, Zayn? I’m Sienna Hoffman and I’m in Waltz City. I’m in…a little trouble over here. Will you come and help me?”
It was apparent that the person was helpless and anxious judging by her voice.
Zayn was stunned for a moment upon hearing the voice. He remembered it soon enough. Sienna was Antony ‘Denali’ Hoffman’s granddaughter that he met in a courtyard back when he was in Yando City.
At the time, she had confronted Zayn and claimed that she would come to Waltz City to see him.
Zayn had been cautiously on his toes for a while at the time. Afterward, he discovered that she did not come looking for him, so he slowly forgot about her.
He did not expect that he would be receiving a call from Sienna today. Moreover, she sounded like she was in some sort of trouble.
“What happened to you?” he queried in a deep voice.
Sienna was Antony’s granddaughter regardless. On the other hand, he owed Antony a debt of gratitude, so if she really was in trouble, he would need to help out anyhow.
Sienna was stammering, sounding helpless and anxious as she said in a pleading tone, “C-can you come over? I’m rather in need of y-you here. Please, I’m begging you…”
Zayn considered it for a moment before agreeing.
