“My darling, why are you calling me? Do you miss me?” Ivan Taylor was on the other end of the line, teasing her.
“Of course, I missed you. I haven’t seen you in just a day but it feels like three autumns have passed. I’m afraid of being discovered by Ben. I have to make excuses every time just to secretly meet you!”
Xena flirted with Ivan and said, “Hey, Ivan, did you know I was really scared to death today? You could’ve never seen me ever again. Fiona and I were out for a stroll and we were suddenly kidnapped!”
“What!” Ivan was shocked to hear this. He probed, “What happened? Who was the culprit? Are you okay?”
Knowing that Ivan cared for her, Xena felt happy. She said, “Don’t worry, we’re both safe now. The important part of the story is that damn Jack. I don’t know what’s going on. He’s offended the young master of the Xenos family from Sky City…”
Xena quickly relayed the entire story to Ivan.
Ivan heard it and exclaimed with joy, “F*ck, this is great!”
Xena momentarily got angry. “What? How dare you say it’s a great thing? If it weren’t for Jack who rushed over in time and his mastery of martial arts, I’m afraid I would’ve been raped and killed if we only relied on the marshal that we were connected to! How dare you say it’s a great thing? Ivan Taylor, do you not love me? Are you just using me?”
Xena discovered at this moment that she did quite like Ivan Taylor. Even though Ivan was a sweet talker, he at least knew how to make people happy. Although she loved money, she was not a loose woman. She had already slept with Ivan Taylor so many times that she naturally wanted to marry him and become his woman—his enviable, precious lady of the house.
She did not expect Ivan to react this way to a scenario where she had been kidnapped and almost lost her life. She thought, ‘Damn this Ivan Taylor, how dare he say it’s a great thing.’
“No, that’s not what I meant, baby. Don’t be angry!” Ivan hurriedly comforted her and said, “I didn’t mean you. I meant it’s great news that Jack offended the Xenos family. Don’t you know that Sky City was huge back in the day? It’s probably twice the size of Eastfield. There are many forces there, and there are many masters, and there are a lot of veterans going back this time. The Xenos family is a relatively large force in Sky City!”
“You mean the Xenos family will take revenge on behalf of the Xenos young master?”
Xena frowned after thinking for a while.
On the other side of the phone, Ivan said, “Yes. Jack, this rascal, killed the young master of the Xenos family. It’d be surprising if he didn’t invite any trouble to himself. For such a large force, even if their clan or people aren’t good, they can use Jack’s own tactics to kill him off!”
“That makes sense!” Xena finally understood and nodded. She said, “However, I’m afraid the Xenos family aren’t aware that their young master died. Even if they did, how would they know it was Jack? What if the Xenos young master failed to tell his family about his hatred for Jack?”
