Lance immediately pulled out a wad of cash and threw it into the driver’s lap. “Hurry up!”
The car immediately revved up its engine and drove off. The men couldn’t catch up by running after them, so they quickly got into their cars to continue giving chase.
“They…they’re probably not going to survive.” Lance grit his teeth and his face was pale.
He looked at Lana. “Are you happy now?”
If Lana hadn’t gone back on her word, they would be with Ethan and all those loyal bodyguards wouldn’t need to die.
But she had made the wrong decision, so all of them ended up dying in Tokyo.
Lana didn’t say anything. She pursed her lips and her face was pale.
She had never gone through anything so harrowing before. Who were those intruders just now? She had no idea.
Were they from the Masamune Syndicate? Or the royal family members supporting the Prince?
“They’re catching up!” Lance looked back and felt his heart nearly leap out of his mouth. There were several cars behind them now.
“Hurry! Drive us to the Masamune Syndicate’s main shrine! Hurry!”
He was extremely frantic now. If they landed in those men’s hands, they were definitely going to die.
The car sped on towards the main shrine, while the cars behind them continued to give chase and refused to give up.
Lance soon saw the symbol of the shrine up ahead and his heart became even more anxious.
“Hurry up! Hurry up!”
It felt like that was heaven ahead! It was a place that could ensure their survival!
A car suddenly crashed into theirs from the side, nearly causing the cab to flip.
Lance and Lana screamed in horror.
The cab skidded several meters out before it stopped and thick black smoke emerged from the car.
Lance struggled to get out of the car and managed to pull Lana out as well. The two of them held onto each other and they were only 20 meters from the shrine.
“And where do you think you’re going?” Several men in suits looked at Lance and Lana from behind.
“Did you think you would be able to survive once you reached this shrine?”
They looked up at the shrine’s gate and laughed coldly.
“Who…who are you?!” roared Lance angrily as he kept an eye on these men in suits and continued to retreat towards the shrine.
“Who we are isn’t important. Who you are is,” said one of them calmly. “Your value depends on what you two are able to do, and as of now, your lives belong to us.”
“Nonsense!” Lance shook his head and shouted loudly as he looked at the gate behind him. “Ethan! Ethan! Save me! Save me!!”
He yelled loudly but the gate remained shut and there was no reaction from inside.
Lana’s face was pale and she was injured, so she could barely stand properly.
“The Salos have already sold both of you,” said the man in a suit as he looked at the two siblings. “Everything that both of you have belongs to us now, do you understand? Nobody can save you now.”
Lana’s eyes widened.
Lance couldn’t believe that the family would literally sell them out like this!
“Who? Who did this?!” shouted Lana angrily.
But the man didn’t reply to him and just waved his hand. The men behind him started walking towards the siblings, and Lance and Lana felt more and more despair as they approached.
“Ethan! Ethan! I’ll give you whatever you want! Save us!” Lana suddenly started shouting loudly.
But the gate remained shut fast, and it didn’t look like it was going to open.
Behind the door right now.
Ethan was standing there, but he didn’t look like he was going to open the door.
“Aren’t you going to save them?” asked Diane.
“Tsk, these two deserve it if they die. They were given a chance but they went back on their word. Don’t they have to pay the price for doing that?” scoffed Caleb with a displeased expression on his face.
Did they think that Ethan was so easygoing? Did they think they could just agree or take their words back anytime? They were already lucky enough that Ethan didn’t just kill them on the spot!
They deserved it!
