Chapter 219 Lest Things Change
Although Josephine had never agreed to marry Jared and was naturally not his wife, her emotions went all over the place after he uttered those words earlier. That very moment, he was Prince Charming in her eyes, tall and handsome.
If he were to propose to her then, she would say yes without the slightest hesitation.
“No! I can’t die! You can’t kill me! Dorieus is my grandmaster, and he’ll avenge me if you kill me!”
Abject panic was written all over Falcon’s face, and there was a puddle on the floor beneath him. It turned out that he had peed his pants.
“I’ll be waiting!”
With a detached smile on his face, Jared brought his leg down right away.
Like a ripe watermelon, Falcon’s head exploded.
Horrified, Josephine jumped into Jared’s arms.
As William watched the scene unfolding before him, a riot of feelings brewed within him. At the side, Walter and Tommy cast him envious glances.
According to status and position, William was still some distance away from Walter and Tommy. While he was the wealthiest man in Horington, the standing of a family that only did business wasn’t all that high in this age of martial arts.
Only when the family had a martial artist or an ancient martial artist among its ranks would its status be elevated.
Since William suddenly had a son-in-law like Jared, the standing of the Sullivan family was indisputable. Even Walter and Tommy would have to be courteous to him when they met him in the future.
“Congratulations, Mr. Sullivan!” Walter whispered to William.
In response, William flashed him a modest smile. “It’s still too early, Mr. Grange. It’s uncertain yet with young people nowadays.”
“Since you know that, Mr. Sullivan, you should pair them up as soon as possible, lest things change!”
Walter grinned at him, and William immediately understood the man’s meaning.
Subsequently, Erasmus had someone clean the room. Only when that was done did Josephine move away from Jared’s embrace.
“W-Was that deliberate? Did you do that intentionally to take advantage of me?” she questioned Jared.
“Who took advantage of you? You were the one who threw yourself into my arms,” Jared countered with bewilderment written all over his face.
“That’s not what I’m referring to! I mean, why did you say that I was your wife earlier? Wasn’t that taking advantage of me?” Josephine huffed in feigned anger.
“Oh, I thought you were willing to be my wife, but it turned out to be wishful thinking on my part! In that case, I won’t say that anymore!” Jared replied calmly.
After saying that, he whirled around and walked out of the room. As he turned around, the corners of his mouth lifted, and he furtively snickered.
Meanwhile, Josephine was stunned as bafflement swamped her. I was merely joking with him. Why couldn’t he tell?
William was likewise stumped then. He hastened forward and pinched Josephine. “Why did you make such a remark? If it weren’t for him, we would’ve all perished. Look, he’s crestfallen now. Go and mollify him, quick!”
Verily, Josephine was a touch embarrassed to do so. But still, she gritted her teeth and rushed out in the end.
“Mr. Grange, I’ll go get the spiritual brush and cinnabar rosary Mr. Chance wants right away!”
As soon as Erasmus had said that, he pivoted and headed toward a room at the side. Shortly after, he returned with the items and handed them to Walter.
“Mr. Grange, I’d also like to ask you to convey a query on my behalf. Although the frosty energy in my daughter has all been absorbed, Mr. Chance said that a frosty constituent would automatically absorb frosty energy. Then, will she not suffer from the cold again in no time?” he proceeded to say to the man with a beseeching expression.
“Okay, I’ll go and put this question to Mr. Chance at once,” Walter promised with a nod as he took the spiritual brush and cinnabar rosary from the man.
Just as he was about to go out and ask Jared that, Josephine’s bellow abruptly rang out from outside. “How dare you dupe me, Jared? I’m going to kill you!”
In the next moment, Jared darted into the room while grinning from ear to ear. Josephine chased after him from behind, but William stopped her.
