Billionaire God of War Chapter 2041

Chapter 2041

Marcel didn’t retaliate. He was trembling in terror.

They were right. The wine had been poisoned.

He stared at the spilled wine on the floor. The poison had been fatal.

He couldn’t believe how vicious Cid was.

“Who are you?” The captain of the guards thundered. He could tell that Marcel wasn’t a guard at all. He pulled his sword out and held it against Marcel’s neck.

That had been a close shave.

Every one of them could have died just now.

He didn’t care if they died. But Third Miss could have died. Ethan could have died.

This bastard. How dare he poison the wine!

Someone pulled Marcel’s helmet off him, revealing his face. Lacey shot to her feet instantly.

“Marcel? That can’t be true.” She was gradually sobering up. She glanced at the poisoned wine. That woke her up instantly. “Were you the one who poisoned the wine?”

Lacey’s eyes turned red.

This was Clearheart Sect.

She was the sect leader’s daughter. She couldn’t believe that someone had the audacity to poison her!

She couldn’t believe that person was the most powerful disciple in the Inner Court, Marcel. How dare he?

The air was taut with tension. A dozen guards surrounded Marcel and bound his wrists.

Marcel dared not fight back.

How could he?

Even if he were to kill these guards, he wouldn’t be able to escape out of the sect’s compounds. Killing them would simply earn him another sentence. It would mean a more painful death.

He looked up and stared right at Ethan. The man was looking at him with indifference. His heart skipped a beat.

“You knew it was me all along, didn’t you?” Realization dawned upon Marcel then.

“That’s right,” Ethan admitted. “So I thought I’d have some fun with you.”

“You!” Marcel snarled. He could taste blood in his mouth.

Ethan had seen through his disguise before he had made his move. In fact, he had stepped right into Ethan’s trap and exposed himself!

“If I’d wanted to…all of you would have been dead!” Marcel snarled softly. His body shook violently. He knew that he was finished.

This was the end of him.

“Do you really think we’re idiots? Maybe you’re the idiot.” Ethan shook his head. “Why would you let them drink the wine if you knew that it’s poisoned? You should thank your lucky stars that you made the right decision. Otherwise, that’d really be the end for you.”

Marcel had stopped in the nick of time. He had saved himself. Otherwise…

Marcel’s jaw dropped at that thought. He couldn’t utter a single word.

Had Ethan just saved his life?

“How dare you make an attempt on your fellow Inner Court disciple’s life! Men!” The captain of the guards roared. “Seize him and hand him to Helis!”

Marcel went without a fight.

He knew that this was the end for him. His future was ruined. But at least, he was going to get out of this alive.

He was struck by a sudden revelation of how terrifying Ethan was. There was nowhere Marcel could hide as long as Ethan was around. He had overestimated himself. He had never stood a chance against Ethan.

And now, Ethan had saved him. He was beginning to regret his actions.

Lacey had been reluctant to let Marcel go. She wanted to chop his head off right there and then.

That bastard had tried to poison her!

“We’re letting him off too easily,” she said as she clenched her jaw. “He was going to kill us!”

“I was the only one he wanted dead,” said Ethan. “Luckily, he’s not rotten to the core. There’s still some good in him.”

He looked at Lacey. She resembled a tiny angry leopard right now.

“Alright, we’re done drinking. Head back to your room and have some rest.”


“Don’t worry about him. No one’s going to harm you. You’re all the rage now and everyone needs you alive,” said Ethan. “Someone tried to kill me though. I’m going to find out who that person is.”

A murderous glint flashed across his eyes.

The temperature around them plummeted suddenly.

Ethan was convinced that Marcel hadn’t come up with the idea to disguise himself as a guard and slip poison into his wine. It had been a clumsy ploy. He wouldn’t have dared to attempt something like that if he didn’t have someone’s backing.

Marcel had also looked petrified, so someone must have instigated him to poison the wine.
