Ethan glanced at Caleb.
“There’s always someone more powerful than you,” he said calmly. “Don’t become complacent.”
The second sentence was targeted at the wolves, even though he knew that it was impossible for the wolves to become arrogant.
The higher one went, the colder one would feel, and the more pressure one would feel with the clearer and clearer realization that there were just way too many strong fighters out there.
Even the man that Ethan got to protect Diane in secret, Cillian, was at a level that the wolves couldn’t surpass within the next few years.
Someone ran in from outside and whispered something to Caleb.
“I’m not going,” he shook his head. “I’m drinking with my brothers, so I’m not free to drink with him. Tell him that.”
The Chief wanted to drink with him?
Caleb wasn’t interested.
Caleb had only pretended to be in his camp. Couldn’t Jaken tell?
Now that he saw photos of the Prince kneeling, he was asking Caleb to drink with him? Caleb couldn’t be bothered.
“The Chief’s personal bodyguards came to pass this message, so if you don’t go, it’s not very nice.”
Caleb frowned. “How many of them are out there?”
“More than ten!”
Caleb slammed the table and clenched his teeth. “He’s really aggressive!”
He was about to go out and reprimand all of them but Ethan held him back.
“Since he’s invited you for a drink, then go ahead.”
Caleb didn’t want to go not because he was afraid, but the wolves had come today and he ought to take care of them. He shouldn’t leave halfway.
“They won’t let themselves go hungry,” said Ethan. “I’ll go with you.”
When he heard that, Caleb’s gaze instantly changed.
He could tell what Ethan was driving at.
“My brothers, I’m really sorry but I have to attend to other matters and I don’t have a choice. I’ll have a drink with you guys next time! We’ll drink till we drop!” Caleb bowed, then straightened himself out.
Ethan got up. “Wifey, didn’t you want updates on what’s happening in the Middle East? You can just ask Geoff and the rest, they’ll tell you all about it.”
Diane was really curious and had asked him all night.
“Sure, I’ll do that,” Diane smiled. “No need to worry about me.”
With the wolves around here, Diane was definitely safe.
Ethan walked out with Caleb, and Jaken’s bodyguards were waiting.
They were relieved that Caleb had come out and was only accompanied by one person.
“Mr Caleb, this way please.”
Caleb scoffed to express his displeasure, then got into the car with Ethan and headed for the headquarters.
He didn’t know why Jaken was calling over at this hour, but he had sent more than ten of his best bodyguards to fetch him, and this was really very unpleasant.
He could smell a threat.
But of course, Caleb knew that he was nothing but a valuable tool in the eyes of the Prince and the Chief.
Even if they were polite to him, that was all fake.
In times of crisis, they would definitely abandon him!
“The more I think about it, the unhappier I become,” grumbled Caleb as he turned to look at Ethan. “I think it’s better to strike out on my own.”
Right now, he really felt that it was best to strike out on his own. Nobody would be able to control him nor threaten him, so he wouldn’t be disrupted like this anymore.
Ethan didn’t say anything.
The car drove right into the headquarters and Caleb and Ethan followed the bodyguards.
Ethan could sense that there were even more Warriors guarding the place than before.
Caleb had noticed it too, and his expression looked even nastier now.
Were these guards targeted at him?
Did Jaken intend to kill him tonight? Tsk!
“These people aren’t targeted at you.” Ethan seemed to know what Caleb was thinking about. “There’s no need to use so many people on you.”
It was the truth, but Caleb felt a little sad when he heard this, as if he wasn’t worth much.
“You mean all this is for you?”
