Chapter 220 I Will Support You
“This is a sacred place! Stop messing around!”
After chiding Josephine, William turned to Walter and Erasmus, flashing them a sheepish smile.
The few others smiled as well, envy shining brightly in their eyes.
“Mr. Chance, while all the frosty energy in Abbot Erasmus’ daughter has been absorbed, you said that she has a frosty constituent and will still absorb frosty energy perpetually. As such, frosty energy will likely infiltrate her body again before long. Therefore-”
Before Walter could finish speaking, Jared waved a hand and cut him off.
“Abbot Erasmus, your daughter will be fine for the time being. Her frosty constituent is exceedingly rare. Considering my current capabilities, I can free her wholly from the frosty energy. However, I rather hope that she can embark on the path of cultivation. To that end, I’ll naturally transform her constituent when my capabilities go up a notch. Let’s just leave it as such for now. She’ll be fine, and I’ll come over regularly to absorb the frosty energy within her,” he said to Erasmus.
With his capabilities at present, he had no problem helping to free Erasmus’ daughter from the frosty energy completely and even keep her young forever. But then, she wouldn’t be able to cultivate anymore, and that would be a total waste of her frosty constituent.
For that reason, he planned to wait until he had improved further before helping her to embark on the path to cultivation. Nevertheless, he actually had his own interests in doing so. The frosty energy was very much beneficial to his cultivation, so he could use the frosty energy he absorbed from her in his cultivation to boost his capabilities.
“Thank you, Mr. Chance! I owe you much!”
While saying that, Erasmus even wanted to fall to his knees before Jared.
Seeing that, Jared hastily held him up with both hands. “You don’t need to stand on courtesy, Abbot Erasmus. I’m here for the spiritual brush and cinnabar rosary, so this is just considered an exchange.”
“The fact that you saved my daughter can never compare to the spiritual brush and cinnabar rosary! Just say the word if you need my help in anything in the future, Mr. Chance!” Erasmus gushed with gratefulness etched on his face.
“Mr. Chance, I’m really sorry about offending you earlier with my ignorance. Please don’t take offense at me!”
Right then, Leonidas came over and apologized to Jared in mortification.
After all, the capabilities exhibited by the man had long since impressed him greatly.
“Don’t worry about it. Since the matter has been resolved, I’ll be taking my leave.”
Jared was eager to return home and restore his mother’s sight as he had the spiritual brush and cinnabar rosary in his possession then.
When they came down from Lagrange Mountain, the sky had already gone dark. Yet, Luca was still waiting at the foot of the mountain.
Josephine volunteered to drive Jared back to Dragon Bay, so Walter and the others could only cram into a single car.
“Why did you insist on driving me back at this hour instead of going home yourself when you’re a girl?” Jared inquired, sitting in the passenger seat.
“I’m your wife, so who’s going to drive you home if not me?”
Without anyone else there, Josephine no longer filtered her words.
“Huh?” Jared was rendered speechless for a while, only retorting after a brief pause, “We’re neither engaged nor married, so how did you become my wife? Besides, I don’t have the money to marry you right now!”
“You might not have money, but I do. I’ll support you in the future. Anyway, I’ve decided on you!” Josephine proclaimed challengingly, staring straight at the man and quirking a brow.
At the sight of that, Jared chuckled. In truth, he had long since taken a fancy to her.
Regardless of whether it was her countenance, figure, family background, or personality, she was his cup of tea.
However, he had yet made up his mind to get together with her then. Ever since he embarked on the path to immortality, his mentality had changed. With the elevation of his capabilities, his lifespan could possibly be extended indefinitely. Conversely, Josephine was merely an ordinary girl.
