Chapter 24,A Man Like None Other
As Jared was bringing them around, he could feel the spiritual energy the place had. It was essential to Jared because he needed that for his cultivation. “What a perfect location this is for training!” “What did you say?” Hannah asked. “Oh, it’s nothing. I said this is a perfect place for retirement!” Jared laughed awkwardly. When they were walking around, they arrived at the entrance gate. That was where Sandy’s car was stopped.
Apparently, Sandy and the others were still there, and they saw Jared walking by. Jared smiled coldly at them as they stood on each side of the gate. Behind that smile, contempt was written all over his face. Sandy was clenching her teeth so forcefully it could be heard from miles away! She couldn’t accept the fact that Jared had become the owner of the most sought-after mansion. “What a friend you got there, Jared!
He’s so generous that he’s willing to lend you his mansion! Would you ask him out for a meal with us?” Hannah had no idea they were standing right in front of Sandy and the others. “Sure!” Jared nodded. Oh! So the mansion isn’t his after all! Sandy was somewhat satisfied when she heard Hannah’s words. “I’ve asked my friend. This mansion belongs to the Sullivan family. It seems like Jared is just showing off something that isn’t his!”
Warrick exclaimed while seemingly reading a text on his phone. “Just because he saved William’s life, he plans to leech off of him for life! What a shameless guy!” Juliette mocked. All thanks to Hannah, Sandy and the others no longer feel inferior. “Even if I’ve only borrowed the mansion, it’s still far better than yours! Come on over then, if you could.” Upon hearing their mockeries, Jared beckoned them by waggling his finger.
“Don’t get ahead of yourself, Jared. I don’t believe that the Sullivan family is going to stand by you forever!” Sandy blurted before she turned and left. Due to the structure of the road, the side of the gate Jared was standing on was higher. Hence, it was hard for Sandy not to feel as though Jared had one over her. “Jared, just stay away from Sandy from now on. She’s a vicious lady!” Hannah advised after hearing the way she was speaking to Jared.
“Got it, Mom. Let’s continue our tour!” Jared held onto Hannah as they continued walking. Gary was following them from behind. After a while, they went back to the mansion to get some rest. That was when a red Porsche suddenly appeared at their doorstep. Jared glanced outside and noticed that Josephine had arrived. “Ms. Sullivan, what are you doing here?” Jared was surprised by her visit. “Please stop calling me Ms. Sullivan!
Josephine will do. I received a call from the security guards saying that you might’ve stolen the key to the mansion! I came here to clear up the confusion.” After knowing that Josephine had gone all the way there just to help him, Jared felt grateful. “It’s okay. Everything’s fine now. But I do have a favor to ask of you!”
“Go ahead!” Josephine nodded. “I told my parents that a friend of mine lent me this mansion. Could you just play along? There are a lot of things I’d rather keep from them at this moment,” Jared whispered. “Sure, no problem!” Josephine smiled before heading into the mansion.
But suddenly, she turned back toward Jared. “So, does this suffice to me asking for their blessings for our relationship?” she teased. “Umm…” Jared was stunned.
