Chapter 26,A Man Like None Other
“Jared, she’s such a nice lady. I could sense that she came from a well-off family. Despite that, she never once acted arrogantly. You have to work harder so that you can have a relationship with her!” Hannah advised after Josephine had left. “Mom, stop it! We’re just friends!” Jared answered helplessly. “Indeed, Jared. I think she’s nice, too! Listen to your mom. Work harder to please Josephine. You know I’m always right when it comes to these things!”
Gary added. It was incredibly rare for Gary to talk casually with Jared. So, it meant that he was very sure of how he felt toward Josephine. “All right, you two. Stay out of it!” Jared went into his bedroom after that. After he had gotten into his bedroom, Jared didn’t go to bed. Instead, he sat down on the floor with his legs crossed. He then calmed himself down and shut his eyes before initiating the Focus Technique. Suddenly, waves and waves of spiritual energy rushed toward him. Throughout the past three years, Jared had never skipped a day of his training.
Although it was an instruction from Draco, Jared insisted that he would continue refining his spiritual energy even after getting out of jail. Not long after that, all the spiritual energy on the mountain top had gathered around Jared and formed a whirlpool. Gradually, Jared breathed in the spiritual energy. Due to Jared still being in the early stages of the process, the amount of spiritual energy that he could absorb was still considered to be little.
However, slowly but surely, he could improve himself over time. By the time Jared opened his eyes, it was already sunrise. After letting out a long breath, Jared realized that he had never felt better in his life. It was because the spiritual energy at the mountaintop was way purer than in prison. Instead of tiredness, he felt rather energetic after the cultivation.“Jared, it’s time for breakfast!” Jared stretched his body and got out of his bedroom upon hearing Hannah’s voice. Gary had prepared a sumptuous breakfast for everyone. Not only that, his attitude toward Jared had changed. He was gentler toward him, and he even smiled at him. Perhaps it was due to Josephine’s visit the day before. After breakfast, Gary brought Hannah out of the mansion for a stroll. On the other hand, Jared planned to head out to visit an antique market.
He was hoping to find a calligraphy brush and cinnabar rosary imbued with spirituality. Jared was eager to heal his mom and restore her eyesight. Meanwhile, Sandy, Juliette, and Warrick had spent the previous night at Sandy’s mansion. The moment Sandy thought about how Jared had ruined her wedding the day before, she was bristling with anger. Even worse, Jared had just moved into a mansion more luxurious than hers.
“Warrick, what time did you say those friends of yours would arrive?” Sandy asked. “They’ll be here soon! As they’re all martial arts experts, Jared would be torn into pieces! Besides, these tough and ruthless friends of mine are from the triads.” Warrick knew that Sandy wouldn’t do anything to Jared.
Hence, he made a few phone calls to his friends. He wanted revenge for what Jared did to him as well. “That’s good, then. Jared has to come out of the mansion at some point. The Sullivan family can’t keep him safe at all times!” Sandy was fuming as she clenched her teeth. “That piece of trash!
Not only did he break Ley’s arm, but he also ruined my wedding. He deserves to die!” After she was done raging, Sandy looked at Warrick and said, “I have to go to the hospital to see Ley now. You take care of Jared. After it’s done, you can expect a handsome reward!” “No problem. Wait for my good news!” Warrick nodded.
