“Hey, what’s going on? What’s with the noise?”
Mr. Hicks shuddered in shock when he heard the voice. He turned around and said respectfully, “Don Albert, are you done with your hot springs? How is it?”
“Good,” Albert answered indifferently and then asked, “What are you doing there?”
Albert said this while walking towards the parking with his men.
“Oh, it’s just some pathetic jerk hitting Mr. Lloyd. I was about to avenge him. The kid isn’t very capable but is very skittish.”
Clutching his stomach, Marcus greeted, “Hi, Uncle Rhodes, long time no see.”
Albert looked at him and laughed. “Oh, it’s you, Marcus! Hey, what’s wrong with your charisma? How can you be beaten in Aurous Hill? You put your father’s reputation to shame!”
Albert and Marcus’s father were quite close, so Marcus could be considered his nephew. He spoke rather directly and in an elderly manner.
Marcus didn’t dare to talk back to Albert, so he said sheepishly, “Uncle Rhodes, I bumped into some miserable jerk. I’ll let him know the price of hitting me later!”
Albert snorted. “Haha! I’m curious to see who’s bold enough to hit you.”
Albert walked forward, pushed aside the guards, and looked at the crowd. He stumbled upon Charlie, who was looking emotionless.
Charlie looked back at Albert and said with a coy smile, “Albert, you’re quite nosy, huh?”
Cold sweat immediately appeared on Albert’s forehead!
Never did he expect that it was Master Wade who was being surrounded by the guards!
At this crucial moment, he secretly rejoiced that he didn’t say anything excessive earlier. If he were to accidentally anger Master Wade, he would be dragged into the misery as well!
Last time, he was gifted the magical elixir thanks to Master Wade’s generosity. Then, he had already expressed his utmost loyalty to Master Wade. He would forever be his servant till the day he died! He nearly screwed himself this time! It was so close!
Albert bowed respectfully and said, “Master Wade, I didn’t know you were here…”
Everyone was dumbstruck upon the shocking scene…
The infamous Don Albert was so respectful and gracious to a pathetic jerk! What was happening?!
It was so f*cking weird!
Charlie pointed at the young man and asked faintly, “Do you know this kid?”
Albert was not a fool. He knew that Marcus must have offended Master Wade. Regardless of his friendship with his father, Albert marched forward, slapped Marcus hard on his face, then sent him to collapse to the floor. Then, Albert grabbed his hair and slammed his head against the concrete floor!
With a loud thump, Marcus heard ringing in his ear. He was dizzy and disoriented.
Resisting the severe pain, Marcus asked, “Uncle Rhodes…why…why did you hit me?!”
Albert glared at him, and slammed directly onto Marcus’s head!
“How dare you offend Master Wade! You have a death wish, don’t you?!”
