“The victor is Larson!” the emcee announced loudly to confirm Larson’s triumph.
As the champion of the event, Larson had the right to marry Hydralerna, the eldest daughter of Osiris. The crowd was very envious of him!
All at once, Jagoan could immediately feel that everyone at the scene looked toward him with jealousy…
In truth, he could not refrain himself from feeling excited for just a brief moment. He could finally marry Faye in the public eye.
He owed her a grand marriage, and he did not expect that he would be fulfilling it there by lucky coincidence. It was a pleasant surprise for him.
He could not stop himself from looking toward Faye, but he did not have the courage to express his love, only his admiration and excitement. His performance was flawless.
Faye met his gaze. She was supposed to be repulsed by Larson initially, but for some reason, she did not find him repulsive or disgusting when she met his eyes. On the contrary, there was an ineffable sense of familiarity.
Faye shook her head in haste and looked away.
She felt rather guilty and ashamed of herself because she was Jagoan’s wife, yet she had actually fallen for another man under such circumstances. She would never forgive herself for doing that!
Larson had also looked away and waited for what happened next.
Under the watchful eyes of the crowd, Osiris got down from the stage with Faye. They made their way to Jagoan, and Osiris said smilingly, “Larson.”
Larson hastily greeted Osiris by saying respectfully, “Mr. President!”
Osiris was very pleased with Jagoan’s manners, neither haughty nor humble. He found him to be graceful and dignified, which was the sign of a good man.
“Will you marry my daughter, Hydralerna?” Osiris asked.
Everyone watched Larson closely.
Larson took a deep breath with excitement and nervousness. He clenched his fists tightly and said loudly, “I will! It’s my honor to marry Ms. Hydralerna!”
“Great! Very well!” Osiris was extremely pleased to hear his answer. He patted Larson’s shoulder strenuously and said, “Good lad. You’re the victor today and you’ll be my son-in-law from now on.”
Faye bit her lip tightly and could not refrain herself from saying, “I object!”
Her remark immediately caused the entire scene to go silent.
Osiris’ face turned somber instantly. He let out a grunt before he cracked a smile once again and disregarded Faye.
He continued to speak to Larson, “It’s better to do it sooner than later. We shall have the wedding tonight and my daughter Hydralerna will be yours after it’s done. I won’t let you off if you mistreat her.”
Larson became even more excited upon hearing that. He got down on one knee and swore, “I swear that I won’t let Ms. Hydralerna down!”
Faye wanted to speak, but Osiris had immobilized her. She was like a puppet that did not even have the ability to move her body anymore.
She teared up in agony, but there was nothing she could do except watch herself being married off helplessly.
Jagoan could see her reaction, and frankly, he was overwhelmed with emotions in his heart.
Faye’s reaction signified that she still loved him deeply.
