“That’s right. However, our Taylor family’s old master came up with an idea. He asked Miss Selena and that young man, Jack to get into a fake marriage. Once they were wed, that son-in-law who married into our family went to the battlefield as Young Master Ivan’s replacement, but no one expected him to safely return!
“Jack was a low-profile person. If he hadn’t reorganized a wedding ceremony for Miss Selena, we wouldn’t have known that he was so good that the Nine Great Gods of War attended his wedding!” The middle-aged man from the Taylor family immediately explained to them.
“How can someone be so strong after spending five years on the battlefield? You have to understand that the person who had killed my son and the rest had to be on par with some Kings of War—those with many stars. It seems like this young man named Jack is quite talented,” surmised Tao.
“Jack White! We can let the others go but Jack, his wife, and his family must’ve escaped together. We have to find him and kill them all. Only then would I have avenged my daughter! I don’t care if he’s friends with the Nine Great Gods of War. Those people attended his wedding ceremony as a sign of respect, but it’s possible that they won’t avenge a mere doctor like him!” The Freeman family master was extremely angry at that moment, wanting nothing more than to shred Jack into pieces.
“Where are they? Where did they go? Tell us now, or we’ll kill you!” Tao aimed the tip of his sword at the middle-aged man’s neck and forced him to answer.
“I—I don’t know! Jack was very cunning! They told us to go to him privately if we don’t want to leave with him. He’d give each family some money and asked us to find a hiding place. How would I know where they run off to? For all I know, they’re probably somewhere far away!” The middle-aged man was so frightened that he stumbled in his words as cold sweat appeared on his forehead.
A thought then occurred to Louis as he ordered the middle-aged man, “Phone number! You guys must have his phone number. Call him and try to probe for the location they’re at right now, ask which city they’re hiding in, and make sure you don’t slip up about being captured when you make the call. Do you understand me?”
“Yes! Act like it’s a normal call, got it?” said Tao firmly with a nod of his head.
“Yes, w—we have their contact!” The middle-aged man took his phone out with trembling hands and made the call.
It did not take long for them to realize the phone number was no longer in use.
“It looks like they’ve canceled this number and gotten a new one.” The middle-aged man looked at the people in front of him with a frown on his face.
Tao gritted his teeth. “These people are sneaky, but they seem to be quite afraid of us. They wouldn’t have acted so carefully otherwise.”
“Nonsense. It’s natural for them to be afraid. How can they not be afraid when they’ve offended powerful families from Gin City?” Louis’s face darkened. Although they managed to capture several people, they failed to obtain any useful information. They only know that the opponent’s name was Jack and had a wife named Selena.
Of course, they could easily get their hands on their photos from some propaganda or posters.
