Chapter 50 Cindy’s expression was nothing but arrogant, clutching onto Edward’s arm as the both of them sat down. Edward had a high and mighty air about him as well. Wilbur frowned, irritation flaring in his chest. It was clear that Cindy had brought her boyfriend along just to show off. It was a gathering, not a show- and–tell. Just then, Cindy smiled and said, “Come on, guys, stop staring! Edward might be someone of status, but he’s my boyfriend. There’s no need to act so awkwardly. The words sounded polite, but the implication was less so. Everyone was speechless. In the end, someone got up and poured everyone a gla** of wine. Those who did not drink got tea instead. After that, Ryan Swan, the previous cla** monitor, raised his gla**. “It’s a rare occasion that all of us are free enough to get together. Let’s drink to that. The night’s still young.” Everyone raised their gla**es, and so did Wilbur, Nancy and a few female cla**mates only drank tea. After the first drink, everyone picked up their cutlery and began chatting among themselves. Just then, Cindy’s gaze fell on Wilbur. She seemed a little surprised. “Wilbur, I haven’t seen you in a while! Where did you run off to for so long?” Cindy asked. Wilbur said, “I went to work abroad and just got back.” Cindy chuckled. ‘Oh! You’ve returned from abroad. I’m sure you must be some bigshot at a top company?” Wilbur frowned. “I’m unemployed right now.” Cindy shook her head at once. “That won’t do! Why don’t I get you sorted out, and you can come to work at Woods Corporate? I’m sure I can get you the position of a driver or security guard.” “That’s fine. I don’t really want to do that.” Wilbur wanted to roll his eyes at her. Who could have guessed that Cindy was just working at Woods Corporate? Cindy said at once, “Why? Are those positions not to your satisfaction? I can get Edward to help you get a part–time gig working for the government Instead. Would that look a little better for you?” Wilbur’s irritation grew stronger. “I’m not really struggling that much yet. You don’t need to worry about me. Those words made Cindy’s expression darken at once, and she slammed her fork on the table. “I was just trying to help you because we were once cla**mates and you’re jobless. What are you trying to imply here?” “I wasn’t implying anything.” Wilbur said calmly. Just then, Edward let out a chuckle. “Forget it, Cindy. No point trying to force him into doing something he doesn’t want to. Some people just don’t know how to appreciate a good gesture.” The words brought about looks of displeasure from everyone, but none said anything due to Edward’s Status. Next to Wilbur, Nancy quickly put some food on Wilbur’s plate. “Try this. It’s pretty good.” “Okay.” Wilbur looked at Nancy gratefully, knowing that she was just trying to save the situation 2/2 However, Cindy was not done yet. “Look at that, old cla**mates reigniting old flames! Nancy, I know you were once deskmates, but you should really be wary of jobless deadbeats like him.” “We’re just cla**mates. You’re overcomplicating it,” Nancy said quietly. Wilbur glanced at Cindy, then shook his head. Cindy had always used her looks to look down on others, and it was clear that she had not changed one. bit. In fact, she had only gotten worse. Yet Wilbur’s gesture angered Cindy, and she shouted, “What are you trying to say, Wilbur?” “Nothing.” Wilbur said calmly. Cindy slammed the table, turning to Edward. “He’s looking down on me.” Edward chuckled, feeding Cindy a piece of meat. “No point in getting angry at lowlives like this, sweetheart.” He then turned to Wilbur, his tone turning cold as he said, “Apologize to Cindy right now or I’ll make your life in Seechertown a living hell.” The cla**mates were abuzz at the sudden outburst. How did that just happen out of nowhere?
Living With My Lady Boss By Blue Silver
Chapter 49 Wilbur saw that it was a call from Nancy and picked it up at once. “Wilbur, where are you? Do you need me to pick you up?” Nancy’s voice came ringing down the line. Wilbur said at once, “Oh, that’s alright, I’ll be right there. “Great! Be on time, will you?” Nancy said, hanging up after that. Wilbur chuckled. To be honest, he was pretty happy to be able to see his old cla**mates after so long. He did not have many friends, and it was hard to still be in touch with his cla**mates after so long. He got in his car and drove to Winston Entertainment. Winston Entertainment was a recreational establishment with food and entertainment services, considered to be rather popular in Seechertown. Half an hour later, Wilbur arrived at the place. He entered the hall and saw Nancy waiting on the couch as if she had been waiting just for him. Nancy saw Wilbur as well and got to her feet at once with a smile. “Come on, everyone’s here.” Wilbur nodded, following Nancy to one of the rooms. They were greeted by over ten cla**mates there, chatting joyously among themselves. Everyone greeted Wilbur, and a sense of nostalgia washed over him. He had gone overseas after finishing junior high, spending the next decade in battle. He had not experienced something like this in a long time. He greeted everyone joyously before sitting down. Just then, Nancy said, “Wilbur, you disappeared after junior high. We still kept in touch, but you were nowhere to be found. Everyone misses you, you know.” Wilbur said guiltily, “My apologies. I went abroad to make a living and lost touch with everyone. Who would have thought that a decade would just pa** by like that? Everyone chuckled before asking about Wilbur’s experiences abroad. Of course, he only said that he was working and vaguely described what happened. Just then, the waiter started bringing in the food. It was not long before the table was filled with food and drinks. It seemed like the party was about to start. However, no one seemed to be digging in. Everyone was still chatting among themselves. Just then, one of the cla**mates said, ‘Cindy sure has some nerves. It’s almost half past eight and she’s still not here.” “She was prom queen. Of course she’d be putting on airs.” “She used to be prom queen, and now she’s the events manager of Woods Corporate. That’s crazy.” “Oh, that’s nothing! We’re all cla**mates, and this is a school gathering! What’s the point in bringing that up?” The mention of Cindy Vega made everyone break out into discussions at once. Wilbur could not help but chuckle to himself. 2/2 Cindy had been the most popular girl in school back then, and it seemed like she was still just as popular. Just as everyone was talking among themselves, the door was pushed open as a lavishly–dressed woman walked in. “Cindy! You finally made it. Everyone’s been waiting for you,” one of the cla**mates said. Cindy was clad in pink office wear and exquisite makeup as she strode in gracefully while waving at everyone. “I’m so sorry for making all of you wait!” Everyone was about to respond when a man in a suit followed behind Cindy. The crowd stopped short. They did not know that guy. Cindy introduced him at once, “Oh, this is my boyfriend, Edward Channing. He’s the son of Xavier Channing, the Weston District manager.” That seemed to surprise everyone and even annoyed a few people. It was a school gathering. What was the point of inviting people that no one knew? However, he was already here, so everyone decided it was best not to say anything.
Chapter 48 Faye never brought it up because Wilbur had never mentioned it as well. Knowing what to say and not say at the right time was the best quality one could have as a subordinate, friend, or even lover. Faye smiled at Wilbur’s words. “Sealake Island’s worth at least five hundred million dollars. That’s a pretty sweet deal you got there.” “Well, it came as a surprise. I wasn’t expecting anything. Wilbur said with a smile. It was only then that Faye finally stopped worrying. The two of them chatted as they finished off the food before Faye went to do the dishes. Wilbur sat on the couch and lit a cigarette. He stared at Faye’s back in the kitchen, lost in his own thoughts. Soon, Faye finished tidying up and came to the living room. Just as she was about to sit down, she slipped and fell down in Wilbur’s direction. “Oops!” Faye cried out, falling onto Wilbur. Wilbur was startled for a moment before reaching out to pull one of Faye’s arms so that she was seated back on the couch. Faye sat down, her hands on her chest as she panted. “That was scary.” The front of her dress slipped down as she shook, showing off her cleavage. Her panting only made things worse, and Wilbur had to struggle to keep his mind from wandering. “I’m going to bed. You should get some rest too.” Wilbur fled after saying the words. Faye’s expression was one of agony as she saw Wilbur leave, mumbling to herself, “I was going to have you for dessert, you coward.” The next morning. Faye woke up and got ready before heading to the living room. Wilbur was nowhere to be seen. She sighed, then got into her car and drove to work Just as she had gotten to her office, she got a call from Timothy. The two of them talked for a long time before the call finally ended. Faye was fuming by then. It turned out that Timothy had indeed gotten to the bottom of things. Shelby was just some hostess at a bar. Who she actually was was not even worth looking into. After growing suspicious of her, Timothy quickly looked up who she really was. Faced with the truth, Shelby had no choice but to admit that she had done this because her manager, Terrence Lawson, had ordered her to do so. With that, Timothy promptly arrested Terrence, who revealed that Miranda Wester of the Willow family. had been behind all of that. Just then, Miranda had already been arrested for attempting to frame someone for sexual a**ault. Timothy had called Faye to tell her that Wilbur’s charge had been dropped, and she was to come to the police station to fill out the paperwork. Faye was furious when she found out. Wilbur had been willing to go easy on the Willows, only for them to hound him after that. It really was too much. Faye had made up her mind to teach the Willows a bit of a lesson, and she wasn’t going to tell Wilbur about it. Following that, she called her secretary. “Buy up Willow Corp’s internal shares in secret. Take as much as you can.” “Got it, Miss Yves,” her secretary said Faye nodded, and said, “Pay close attention to their every move. I want to take them down completely. Willow Her secretary replied, “Alright. Willow Corp has been in hot water since what happened to them last time. A lot of banks are chasing them to pay off their debts. Faye’s eyes lit up at once. “Alright! Get me in touch with the bank reps in charge of this. I’d like a word with them.” “On it.” Evening came by quickly. Wilbur finished meditating and opened his eyes. The thought of what happened last night made him shake his head. Faye was really impossible to resist. It was making his life really hard. Had it been any other man, they would have succumbed to her charms a long time ago. Just then, Wilbur’s phone rang.
Chapter 47 However, Jeremy bowed to Wilbur deeply. “I thank you for your kindness, Senior, and I deeply regret my actions. Let me send you a gift as an apology.” “Oh?” Wilbur was a little surprised. Jeremy looked around him. “The Owens family owns this island. I’ve underestimated and offended you. I’d like to offer you this island as a gift as an apology.” “You’re giving this island to me?” Wilbur had honestly not expected this, and he looked at Jeremy in surprise. “This place must cost good money.” Jeremy bowed again. “I’m sure money is hardly a problem to you, Senior. This is just a little gift from me, I hope you’ll accept it.” Wilbur fell silent for some time before saying slowly, “Since you offered, don’t mind if I do.” “Thank you for accepting this, Senior. I’ll arrange for the transfer of the property as soon as possible. It’ll be yours very soon,” Jeremy said. Wilbur nodded, then turned to leave. Jeremy called out behind him, “From this day on, the Owens family shall take any order that you may have, Senior.” Gerard and Matt heard that and hurried to bow to Wilbur as well. *Gerard Torrent of the Torrent clan at your service, Senior.” “Matt Lilith of the Lilith clan at your service, Senior,” Wilbur nodded lightly but continued walking away. Just then, Jeremy finally straightened up as he let out a long breath. The Owens family had really met their match this time. However, Jeremy was no small fry himself. After all, he had made it as the head of his own clan. He quickly readjusted his mindset after losing to Wilbur Wilbur was practically considered a god on earth, with power that no clan could match. Since they could not beat him, they might as well join him. With someone like Wilbur on their side, the clan’s power would only grow stronger. Thus, Jeremy decided to give Sealake Island to Wilbur, It was to apologize, but also a gesture of allegiance. -if–Wilbur did not turn him down, Jeremy was sure that he would be able to gain Wilbur’s forgiveness with his own sincerity. Gerard and Matt understood at once what Jeremy was thinking as well. That was why they had shown their loyalty too, volunteering to follow Wilbur’s orders. They naturally had to cling to a force like this! Just then, the three clan leaders exchanged a glance. Jeremy said, “There is a silver lining to even the darkest cloud. This incident started out as a tragedy, but we just might have gotten some good out of it. Chapy Let’s hope this turns out good for us.” Wilbur drove home and entered the house to see Faye still at the table. She had not touched the food on the table at all, and it was still steaming. It was from being heated up over and over again, of course. Wilbur asked, ‘Why haven’t you eaten?” Faye was clearly relieved at the sight of Wilbur coming home safe, and she greeted him happily. “How was I supposed to stomach anything with you gone? Are you alright?” “I’m fine.” Wilbur smiled lightly, taking off his shoes and sitting down at the dining table with Faye. Faye filled up Wilbur’s plate, and the two of them dined in silence. “How did it go?” Faye was still a little worried. Wilbur nodded. “It went well, I’d say. I even got Sealake Island because of it.” “Sealake Island? Faye was a little confused. Wilbur said, “The Owens family gave Sealake Island to me. They said I’ll have it in the next few days.” Those words left out a lot of the dangers that he went through. – Faye knew that a lot more had happened. After all, it had resulted in the transfer of an establishment that cost billions. Wilbur must have gotten it with pure, undeniable skill. Faye knew a thing or two about what her boss was capable of. There was a rumor that he had led a group of elites into battle around the world, before finally founding Cape International. Wilbur’s power was rather terrifying, to be honest.
Chapter 46 Just then, Jeremy’s face was white as a sheet. He could not stop coughing up blood, his expression one of disbelief and shock. A second later, Gerard and Matt could finally raise their heads. They saw Wilbur completely unharmed, and their chests lurched in shock. How could this be? Wilbur was standing right there, and there was nothing for them to believe otherwise. Just then, the scroll Jeremy was holding burst into flames all of a sudden. It disintegrated to ashes in no time, disappearing from sight. Jeremy was in shock, before yelling, ‘Ancient ancestor Ancient ancestor Wilbur frowned. “Stop yelling. That burst of energy was the last of your ancestor, but you insisted on exhausting it. This outcome is inevitable.” Jeremy gritted his teeth as he glowered at Wilbur. “You destroyed my clan jewel.” Wilbur’s expression grew cold. He took a big stride, stepping right up to Jeremy. Wilbur grabbed him by the neck and lifted him into the air. The Owens family was in shock, and all of them crowded forward. They wanted to save Jeremy, but none of them dared to do anything. Jeremy’s life was currently in the palm of Wilbur’s hands. Wilbur said coldly. “You provoked me 1 me and time again, and I was willing to let it go. Even now, you’re still trying to blame me for what happened to you. Well, you can pay for your own actions then.” As he spoke, Wilbur’s grip on Jeremy’s neck tightened. Jeremy gagged, feeling like he was about to die from suffocation at any moment. It was only then that he realized how ternfying an existence Wilbur was. Not only did he beat Jeremy, but he had also taken out the ultimate sword image that Jeremy’s ancient ancestor had left behind. Someone capable of doing that was practically a god. Jeremy’s expression finally flashed with terror, and he began to beg. Nevertheless, he could not speak anymore, only wheezing like a feral beast. The crowd was all the more terrified. They could tell that Wilbur was going to kill him at any moment, yet the murderous aura that was coming off him made it near impossible for anyone to dare to stop him. Seeing his father at the brink of death, lan fell to the ground in the distance on his knees as he shouted with all his might, “Please spare my father, Great Master! The Owens family surrenders to you.” Wilbur glanced at fan. He sneered coldly, then threw Jeremy to the ground. Jeremy’s chest heaved as he took in large gulps of air, finally regaining a little color on his face. Following that, he cursed himself before bowing deeply to Wilbur. “I, Jeremy Owens, officially surrender. Thank you for sparing my life, Senior,” The jaw–dropping contrast in strength was undeniable. Jeremy and the rest could only surrender to Wilbur. Chapter 45 12 Jeremy had truly admitted defeat. Wilbur cast a glance at the crowd. Jeremy, as well as his clan, bowed to him. Gerard and Mark were bowing with their respective clans as well. Seeing this, Wilbur said coldly. “I’m not one to go too far, so I’ll spare you this time. You’d better behave after this.” Upon speaking. Wilbur turned and headed for the bridge. Yet Jeremy stared at Wilbur’s retreating back for all but two seconds, before hurrying up to him. “Please wait, Senior.” The Owens family was confused at the gesture. Was Jeremy really going to challenge Wilbur again at a time like this? Their clan would be done for. Gerard and Matt were shocked as well, trying to look meaningfully at Jeremy so he would stop asking for trouble and possibly drag their clans into this.
Chapter 45 Just as Jeremy’s words rang through the air, lan was seen walking up to him holding a wooden box. Ian got on his knees, pa**ing the box to Jeremy above his head. Jeremy opened the box with a wave of his hand. He took out a scroll and flicked it open in one swift move. – The scroll contained a painting of an elder clad in long robes. There was a sword on the elder’s back as his robes billowed in the wind, looking extremely ethereal At the same time, a powerful pressure surged out from the painting. It enveloped the air, filling it with an unspeakable pressure. Just then, Gerard got to his feet in shock. “Legend has it that the Owens family owns a portrait of an ancient ancestor who holds the power of an elite cultivator! It’s said to be the clan jewel. Is this it?” Gerard himself had lost a little composure. It was hardly his fault, after all. The painting was a legendary treasure, and to witness it filled Gerard’s chest with awe. Matt was in shock as well, shaking as he stood up. He stroked his beard, exclaiming, “What a treasure! Tha power this painting hold is not something I deserve to own for sure! The Owens family sure is the most powerful clan.” Jeremy smirked coldly, then looked at Wilbur. “Young man. You’re about to find out today what it means to be a clan with real power. You’ll finally understand that it’s not something that a young brat like you can screw with.‘ Wilbur shook his head. “Oh my. Is that it? Come on. Just pack it up already. Don’t hurt yourself.” Jeremy shouted, “How dare you! To be in the presence of my ancient ancestor is to be in the presence of a god! Ancient ancestor, please take out the enemy for me.” As he spoke, Jeremy channeled a good amount of his energy into the painting. It lit up at once, and a terrifying force enveloped the entire island. All at once, the winds whipped recklessly as the sky lost all light. “Go to hell!” Jeremy shouted the words as an image of a sword appeared in the painting. It soared into the air, lighting up the night sky. Following that, the sword image came charging downward in Wilbur’s direction with an impossible force. The sword shadow constricted the air wherever it pa**ed, causing the wind to whip through the crowd’s clothes and making it hard for them to open their eyes. The crowd was in awe of the sword image, a strange blend of fear and respect arising in their chests. Of course the Owens family was not to be trifled with Everyone was certain then that Wilbur was dead for sure. He might have been able to trump Jeremy earlier, but that was because both of them were mortal. The sword Image from such a sacred painting was not something a human being was able to take. Wilbur was done for. The doubt that Gerard and Matt had from before was quickly stamped out by the sight of the sword image. 2/2 Just then, Wilbur shook his head. He raised his right hand, pointing at the sky. In the blink of an eye, an oppressive force surged out of Wilbur and hit the crowd all at once. There was a blinding light coming from the tip of his finger as well. In the blink of an eye, the light grew to the size of almost a hundred meters. It emanated a terrifying sword aura, swinging in the direction of the painting’s sword image. Both terrifying forces collided in mid–air. A deafening sound rang through the air as both attacks exploded into a shower of brilliant sparks. It was as if it was raining shooting stars. Both forces collided and exploded again and again, hurtling around in the air before slowly fading. Sealake Island resumed its peace and quiet. The three clans were trembling, curled in on themselves on the ground. The collision had scared the wits out of them, and they could hardly even stand. Wilbur was the only person standing, with his hands behind his back as he stared at the crowd expressionlessly.
Chapter 44 Compared to John, Jeremy was a lot stronger and more skilled than his son. His aura alone was something that John was not capable of. The sight of Jeremy’s powers led the three clans to burst into cheers once again. Wilbur’s expression remained unchanged as he silently looked at Jeremy. Jeremy’s eyes were bloodshot with rage. He leaped into the air, pouncing at Wilbur like a hawk. As he landed, countless afterimages of his punches appeared in the air, raining down on Wilbur, All at once, the air began to whip and grow misty with smoke and sand. Wilbur kept one hand behind his back, the other making a series of patterns in the air as he countered Jeremy’s every attack, disintegrating each blow into nothing. Jeremy was furious. He landed on the ground, launching attack after attack at Wilbur. His punches barreled toward Wilbur from all directions, but Wilbur still managed to neutralize them with only one hand. Jeremy’s fierce attacks had not sent Wilbur a single step backward. In fact, he did not even use his other hand once. Jeremy continued to attack Wilbur for over a minute, his fury growing as he realized that not a single blow was landing. He cried out loud all of a sudden, his right fist lighting up with a power flame as he hurled it toward Wilbur’s head. His internal energy had materialized into the flames around him. It was a powerful blow, one that required far more skill than the aura blow. The crowd, sensing the power of his attack, burst into endless cheers and praise. Jeremy’s gaze flashed with a cold glint. Since he could not defeat Wilbur in combat, he would just have to beat him with brute force. He did not think that some young guy would be able to beat him in terms of energy. Nevertheless, just then, Wilbur let out a soft cry as well. He formed a fist with his right hand, then punched in Jeremy’s direction. The counter–attack seemed like nothing, colliding with Jeremy’s fist from earlier. A thump could be heard as both attacks collided in the air, followed by a surge of terrifying energy entering Jeremy’s body. “Argh!” Jeremy cried out in agony, spitting out blood. He was sent flying backward for over ten meters before he was able to regain his balance. He clutched his chest and stared at Wilbur in disbelief, The Owens family surrounded him at once, coming to Jeremy’s protection. They turned to stare at Wilbur warily. Gerard and Matt were in shock as well, exchanging a glance as their minds were in complete shock. That was a turnout that neither of them had expected. They both knew just how powerful Jeremy was. It could be said that he was second to none in 2/2 Seechertown. Regardless, he had lost just like that this time. It seemed like there was a new top dog in Seechertown. However, Jeremy gulped hard, sending away the men who came to his aid as he faced Wilbur. “Il admit that I’ve underestimated you.” “That’s fine. It’s not too late for you to back down,” Wilbur said. Jeremy replied with a cold sneer, “The Owens family will not have our pride questioned. Did you really think I’ve lost?” “Are you actually trying to die here? Wilbur was a little confused. This guy seemed to not know who he was dealing with. Jeremy said coldly, “You have no idea what our clan is capable of. We’re strong enough to take just about anyone down. Don’t even think for a second that you’ve won.” Wilbur frowned. ‘Is that so? Come on, cut it out already. You could really die.” However, Wilbur’s words clearly did not feel like a threat to Jeremy. Jeremy roared angrily, “Bring out the clan jewel!”
Chapter 43 Wilbur looked around him. All that could be seen was the crowd staring back at him, clearly unimpressed. It was as if they were certain he was destined to die. His gaze then landed on John. “That was a pretty decent aura blow. I suppose it’s a little impressive.” Gerard stood up at once, pointing at Wilbur. “How cocky! You’re saying that an aura blow is only a little Impressive? And what level would you happen to be at, hm?” “Me?” Wilbur shook his head. “I’m not too sure about that myself.” Matt spoke up then. “That’s quite a boast you just made. John, don’t waste your time. Send him straight to hell.” John smirked, slowly walking towards Wilbur. Wilbur frowned. “John, don’t ruin your future like this.” “You’re out of your mind,” John retorted angrily, and everyone else flared up in anger as well. It was clear that Wilbur had no respect for the three clans at all, daring to say something like that in such a dire situation. All at once, the air was filled with various curses thrown toward Wilbur. John stood right in front of Wilbur and spoke in a low voice, “I’m sure you’ve got a trick or two up your sleeve, seeing as you were able to kill Lightning Hank. Come on, now. Show me what you’ve got.” “I’m afraid you might not have the chance to attack after me, though,” Wilbur replied calmly. John burst out laughing at the words before shouting. “Young man, no one in all of Seechertown, and even the Kardon Province, has dared to speak to me like that before.” “Well, someone’s doing that now.” Wilbur’s expression did not budge. John could not take it any longer. He cried out, “Go to hell, you rude bastard!” John launched a blow as he shouted. His attack let out a sound like whipping wind and thunder, barreling in Wilbur’s direction. From John’s aura blow earlier, it was clear to see just how powerful that blow was. No one believed that Wilbur would be able to take it. Everyone was certain that he would be dead in the next second. Wilbur sighed as the attack got closer and closer to him. He lifted a finger at the very last second, tapping at the air in front of him. Wilbur’s tap seemned devoid of any strength or power, landing softly on John’s attack. However, the powerful attack that John had just launched seemed to be stopped just like that, unable to move another inch. John was aghast, and so were the three clans. No one knew what had just happened. Just then, an Impossibly strong force burst out of Wilbur’s finger before making a beeline for John through the punch he just threw. John let out a loud howl, spitting out a mouthful of blood as he was sent flying by the enormous force. 2/2 The crowd cried out in shock. Jeremy’s expression changed as well. He rushed to his son, trying to catch him. This caused him to be sent stumbling backward a few steps from Wilbur’s blow as well before he was able to find his balance. John’s face was pale, and it seemed like he had fallen unconscious. Jeremy was enraged, glowering at Wilbur as he roared, “How dare you hurt my son!” The Lilith and Torrent clan exchanged glances as well, not daring to say a word. John’s failed attack was a great humiliation to the Owens family. There was no way Jeremy was going to let this slide. Yet all Wilbur said was, “What? Was he supposed to be the only person allowed to attack? How funny.” Just then, lan ran over. Jeremy handed John to him before walking toward Wilbur, then said, “Well, I’d like to see just what you’re capable of.” The crowd took several steps back at the sight of Jeremy entering the battle himself, making space for him. Jeremy could also sense that Wilbur was no ordinary fighter and was preparing for a big fight. Jeremy’s body began to glow with his aura as he walked toward Wilbur, an invincible pressure began emanating from his body.
Chapter 42 Wilbur smiled at her in response before driving off. Faye turned to look at the table full of food. She was starving just a second ago but had somehow lost her appetite. Wilbur drove for a short while and arrived at Sealake Island. Sealake Island was a resort villa that the Owens family had spent a few hundred million dollars on building. An island was built in the middle of a lake, equipped with hotels and entertainment spots. It was quite popular tourist destination in Seechertown. Wilbur parked his car outside, then walked along the bridge. Just then, there were around a dozen people sitting in the square in the middle of Sealake Island. There was one chair in the middle, occupied by a man in his sixties. His eyes were bright, flickering with traces of spirit energy.. He was the head of the Owens family, Jeremy Owens. Standing behind him were his two sons, lan and John. On his left and right were the other two major clans of Seechertown, the Torrent clan, and the Lilith clan. These two clans were historical family names of Seechertown. They were both incredibly powerful, second only to the Owens family. It was eight o’clock then, and Jeremy looked around him. “I’m sure you know why I called both your clans here. The pride and reputation of our clans shall not stand to be tainted, and someone must be responsible for something happening to one of our people. Gerard Torrent and Matt Lilith, both the heads of the other two clans, nodded in agreement. Jeremy smiled after seeing the two clans‘ obedience. As the top dog of the Seechertown clans, it was important for him to show his authority once in a while to keep everyone else in their place. Just then, Wilbur’s figure appeared on the bridge. He crossed the lake, stepping onto the island. He was immediately surrounded by the clans‘ men. They blocked out all paths around Wilbur as if worried that he might run off any moment. Wilbur chuckled, continuing to walk until he reached the middle of the square where he looked around him. “You brought quite a crowd with you.” The three clans had around 40 to 50 people with them. Wilbur showing up alone did, admittedly, look a little Jame in comparison. Jeremy glanced at Wilbur, hardly paying him any mind. “Are you the one who killed Lightning Hank?” “Indeed,” Wilbur answered without hesitation. Jeremy smirked coldly. “Very well. You’ve got some nerves. Very well. I’ll get straight to the point. John, you go. It’s about time you let your Uncle Matt and Uncle Gerard see how far you’ve gotten with your fighting skills.” John nodded, striding towards Wilbur. Gerard smiled. “This nephew of mine is highly skilled. I don’t think I’m quite deserving to comment on him. “Yes. The kids are growing up fine! We’re all getting old now,” Matt said politely as well. Jeremy said nothing, smiling as well. Just then, John had already walked up to Wilbur. It was clear that he did not acknowledge him. John looked Wilbur up and down, shaking his head. “You’re so weak. I honestly don’t understand how Hank managed to die by your hands.” “Maybe he just deserved it,” Wilbur said lightly. John’s gaze narrowed, and he let out a scoff before walking up to a large rock a few meters away. The rock was around three meters wide and five meters tall. John let out a loud cry as he clenched his fists, and they began to glow faintly. Following that, he breathed out before throwing a punch onto the TOCK. A crack sounded through the air, and the rock shattered into pieces at once. “Good job!” The men from the three clans could not help but erupt into cheers. Just then, John put his hands behind his back and looked at Wilbur. “Do you think you can take one punch of mine?” Spin to Claim Your Surprise Reward!
Chapter 41 Miranda felt a little guilty but refused to budge. “What? He broke the law and got arrested. How is that anyone else’s fault?” Yvonne looked at her mother and shook her head. “You still don’t understand just how powerful he truly is. If it really was you, you’d better apologize right now and clear things up. That way, the Willow family might still be able to survive this.” “I did nothing. I had nothing to do with this!” Miranda said hurriedly, turning to leave at once Regardless, Yvonne was certain that her mother had been the one to arrange for this to happen. She knew what her mother was like, and it was going to be almost impossible to get her to admit to her faults. Yvonne let out a long sigh, falling back in her seat limply. The Willow family was going to be done for. Wilbur put all these worries and troubles at the back of his head and drove to the morning market a few kilometers from the house. It was barely nine in the morning, and the market was still open. The groceries there were fresher than those in the supermarket, and there were more options as well. Faye had barely gotten any rest over what had happened with Wilbur, and he felt a little guilty about that. He planned to make her dinner at night as a gesture of appreciation. Just as he was in the middle of grocery shopping, he heard a voice call out to him. “Wilbur Penn?” Wilbur turned around and saw a pretty girl in her twenties wearing jeans smiling at him. He paused for a moment before realizing who the girl was. “Nancy Brand?” Wilbur smiled earnestly. Nancy smiled back sweetly, revealing two little dimples. “I knew it was you! I almost didn’t say hi. I’m glad I did! How’s it going, old pal? It’s been a while. Are you well?” “I’m pretty good.” Wilbur was feeling a little emotional. He had left school after junior high, and Nancy was one of the few cla**mates he had. The two of them had even been deskmates and had a pretty good friendship. Over ten years had pa**ed since then. Honestly speaking, he would not have said hi to Nancy if she had not done so first. The pair chatted for a while, then Nancy said, “Wilbur, this isn’t a good place to talk! There’s a gathering happening tomorrow night. Would you like to come?” “Oh, I really shouldn’t,” Wilbur turned her down. Nancy said, “It’s all old friends from school and no one elsel I’m sure it’s been a while since you’ve seen everyone. Don’t you miss them?” Wilbur knew that he couldn’t turn her down this time and thus agreed. Nancy was all smiles as the two of them exchanged numbers. She reminded him several times of where the gathering was going to happen the next day, before finally parting ways. Wilbur could not help but let out a sigh at the sight of Nancy’s figure fading into the distance, feeling as if he could see his lost youth in her. 2/2 After buying everything be needed, Wilbur drove home to find an invitation on his doorstep. He opened it to see the following message. 8:00 PM., Scalake Island. It was signed by a “Mister Owens“. Wilbur smiled. He opened the door and headed inside, putting the groceries in the fridge before beginning to meditate. Around six in the evening, Wilbur opened his eyes before beginning to cook in the kitchen. A little over an hour later, a five–course meal was ready. Faye got home just as he was setting the table. She took in the sight of the meal he had made for her, feeling touched. Wilbur smiled, “Come eat.” Faye nodded at once. She got changed and sat at the table. Yet just then, Wilbur told Faye that he was heading out. Faye was dumbfounded. A moment later, she asked, “The Owens sent you an invite?” “Yup.” Wilbur nodded. Faye could not help but grow a little nervous. “I’m going with you.” “That’s alright. You aren’t a part of this. It’s best that you don’t get involved.” Wilbur turned her down at 1 Faye knew that she wouldn’t be of much help with that and could only watch quietly as Wilbur left.
