Chapter 605 Kill Him
Walter had initially headed over to try and find some treasures. Since things had unfolded in such a manner, he needed to know when they could go back. After all, they had come in the same car, so they would have to follow Jared’s arrangement.
“Mr. Grange, please take Josephine and Lizbeth back with you first. I’ll be staying in Jadeborough for a few more days. There’s something I need to do.”
Jared did not elaborate further because he did not want to worry Josephine.
The moment Josephine heard him, she requested to stay as well. “What for? I want to stay back with you too.”
“Me too. I can go sightseeing with Josephine. There are quite a number of famous historical sites here,” Lizbeth chimed in.
“No, both of you must go back today.”
Jared turned them down without any hesitation.
Once he learned that Jadeborough was a dangerous place with many hidden forces lurking around, he dared not allow Josephine to stay there any longer. If any of the Coopers decided to hurt her, it would be too late for him to regret it.
Josephine looked at Jared with displeasure, but she did not dare to throw a tantrum.
Instead, she pouted her mouth and said, “Let me warn you first. You better not fool around if you stay in Jadeborough. If I find out about it, I won’t forgive you.”
“Relax. Jadeborough may be a large city, but I won’t be able to find another woman who is as beautiful, gentle, and virtuous as you,” said Jared with a smile.
His sentence made her blush. “Hmph! You sound so insincere!”
Despite her words, she was on cloud nine.
An indescribable emotion welled up in Lizbeth’s heart when she saw Jared flirting with Josephine.
When Walter saw his granddaughter biting her lip tightly, he shook his head with a sigh. Naturally, he knew about her feelings.
However, Jared was no ordinary man. If he did not mind having a few more intimates, Walter would allow Lizbeth to stay by Jared’s side.
Later on, Walter left with Josephine and Lizbeth. Samuel wanted to invite Jared to stay at the Bailey residence, but the latter did not want to trouble anyone. Instead, he got Theodore to find him a hotel.
“Mr. Chance, please rest in the hotel in the meantime. Once I have news of the Mapletons, I’ll inform you.”
There was no need for Jared to get involved with the search since he was unfamiliar with the place or the people. Theodore would deal with the matter himself, and once he located them, they would need Jared’s help to have them detained.
Jared nodded. “Sure. Once you have an update, just give me a call.”
After Theodore left, Jared wanted to cultivate in the hotel room. However, there was barely any spiritual energy in a bustling city like Jadeborough. Without the resource, it would only be a waste of time to cultivate.
Seeing that it was getting late, Samuel phoned Jared to invite him to dinner. However, the latter turned him down because it was no longer necessary for him to consume food or drinks when in the Transcendence Phase. In fact, Jared could go for days without eating and drinking in the current phase, and he still would not feel hungry. Besides, he did not like to be in situations where he would be the center of attraction and people would try to fawn over him.
The streetlights came on gradually, and they lit up the entire city, making Jadeborough look picturesque. Jared went downstairs, planning to take a walk on the streets.
Meanwhile, in the dining room of the Cooper residence, no one was eating even though there was a table full of food. Sean had a grim expression on his face, and the atmosphere in the room was suffocating.
“Dad, since you know that this guy, Jared, is in Jadeborough, why don’t you just send someone to kill him and avenge Franco?” asked a young man in his twenties sitting next to Sean.
