Meanwhile, many special agents immediately got out from the convoy of cars behind them. They swiftly began engaging in a counterattack while some made their way to their location.
“Your Highness, are all of you alright?”
A middle-aged special agent rapidly made his way to Prince William. His expression was filled with unswerving determination without any panic and displayed his utmost professionalism.
Prince William felt so much calmer in the man’s presence. He asked, “We’re fine, Peter. What happened?”
Peter said in a deep voice, “Your Highness, we regret to inform you that we’ve been ambushed by assassins. However, please don’t worry because we’ll fight them off!”
Upon hearing Peter’s assurance, Prince William was put at ease. He immediately said, “Thank you for your effort, Peter. You must capture the assassins. I’d like to see who’s bold enough to target me!”
He made the remark in a rather aggressive tone with just an ounce of a prince’s dominance.
What a waste that they had underestimated the capabilities of the assassins.
Prince William noticed that Josua was shaking his head and assumed that he was scared. He said in contempt, “Are you scared, Rheasian? Don’t worry, you won’t get hurt while my royal bodyguards are here.”
Alice had the same thought as well. She nodded and said to Richard, “That’s right, Edgar. Don’t be scared. You’re a guest in our country, so we won’t let you get hurt.”
Josua could not be bothered to comment further on their confidence. He merely nodded and was about to leave the Rolls Royce.
The sight of him doing that immediately startled Alice. She hastily said, “What are you doing, Josua?”
Prince William looked at Josua in astonishment. He was confused by Josua’s action as well.
Josua said nonchalantly, “These assassins are extremely powerful and Prince William’s royal bodyguards are no match for them. I’m going to handle them myself.”
He said it so nonchalantly, it was as if he was saying that there was a colony of ants outside and he was going to crush them to death under his foot.
His statement sounded like a joke to Prince William and it made him burst out laughing. “Hah-hah-hah-ha!”
“I haven’t misheard you, right? What did you say again? Did you say you’re going to head outside to handle these assassins? Alice, how did you get acquainted with this idiot? Hah-hah-hah.”
Alice was astounded upon hearing that as well. She found Josua to be so pretentious that she was already starting to get revolted.
Alice pulled a long face upon hearing that and said to him, “Richard, your joke is not funny at all! We’re being ambushed by assassins and they’re extremely ferocious scoundrels.”
“They’re capable of killing you and going outside now will only make things worse.”
Josua was visibly touched by Alice’s protectiveness, but he felt even more frustrated.
He said, “Alice, I’m not joking with you. The truth is, I didn’t tell you that besides being an academic, I’m one of the world’s strongest fighters. Only I can protect you and Prince William now.”
Upon saying that, he was about to loosen his grip on Alice’s hand and open the door to head outside.
