“You’re wrong about that,” said Ethan. “Every single person here is qualified to talk to you. You’re just a murderer, so you’re one of the worst criminals around. Did you think you were someone of high standing?”
“How dare you!” shouted Elder Jorge furiously. “Who do you think you are? How dare you malign me like this!”
He looked like he was going to hit Ethan, but Ethan didn’t look like he was going to even take a step back. On top of that, Liam and the rest didn’t look like they were going to stop Ethan either.
Elder Jorge held his anger in and felt that there was something amiss about this situation.
The entire courtyard had been surrounded, and besides Liam, all the elders of Clearheart Sect were here, including the Senior Elder!
The members of the Disciplinary Hall had surrounded this place.
“Chief O’Clear, what do you mean by this?” Elder Jorge purposely looked like he was going to fly into a rage and said very deliberately, “What does Clearheart Sect take me as?”
“What does Clearheart Sect take the Titan Sect as?”
“Elder Jorge, does Marcel’s death have anything to do with you?” Liam went straight to the point and didn’t beat around the bush.
There was no point in beating around the bush now.
“Does it have anything to do with me?” Elder Jorge scoffed. “Someone in Clearheart Sect has died and you’re going to blame Titan Sect for it? All of us are here on our Chief’s instructions to ask for your daughter’s hand in marriage, and not to kill one of your disciples! Even if you’re the chief of this sect, you can’t simply slander me and smear our reputation like this!”
Elder Jorge was very agitated, but it was hard to tell if he was just pretending or if he was really angry.
“Cid has already admitted to everything,” said Liam calmly. “If I don’t remember wrongly, Cid is related to you, and I believe you’re his elder sister’s husband.”
Elder Jorge’s expression changed.
“Cid killed Marcel, and he was acting under your instruction.” Liam sighed. “He’s admitted to everything in front of everyone here and didn’t miss any detail.”
The atmosphere suddenly became rather solemn.
Helis gave a hand signal and all the guards increased their vigilance as they surrounded and watched the courtyard closely. They weren’t going to give Elder Jorge and the rest any chance to escape.
There was no point in Elder Jorge explaining anything now.
A murderous air emanated from Elder Jorge’s face as he saw that so many people had surrounded him.
“Chief O’Clear, if you hurt me, that’s as good as becoming enemies with Titan Sect!”
Elder Jorge had to drag Titan Sect into this because he knew that Clearheart Sect was wary of them.
Even though he was clearly in the wrong, he still looked at Liam and the rest with disdain, and didn’t bother hiding it either.
The Senior Elder and the other members of Clearheart Sect noticed this and didn’t say anything, but they all felt very uncomfortable inside.
“Chief O’Clear, don’t forget, we came here with a marriage offer, so that’s giving your sect a chance! But it seems like you’re not cherishing this chance! Worse still, you’re actually accusing me of murder and you’re trying to slander Titan Sect? You think you’re really something, huh?!” roared Elder Jorge furiously. “I can tell you very confidently that Titan Sect is not a sect that you can afford to offend!”
Liam and the rest didn’t say anything but just frowned.
Before coming over, Liam had hesitated on what to do. He had figured out who the mastermind was, but this situation was very tricky. So what if he had caught hold of Elder Jorge?
It was true that Clearheart Sect really couldn’t afford to offend Titan Sect now.
Liam glanced at the Senior Elder and there was fury in his eyes, but he still shook his head gently and sighed.
After weighing the pros and cons, the Senior Elder also knew that it wasn’t wise to offend Titan Sect now.
Elder Jorge saw their reactions and became even more complacent.
“Someone within your own sect killed one of your own disciples, so what has it got to do with me?” Elder Jorge laughed coldly. “Even if I did kill him, then are you saying that you dare to kill me in exchange for his life?”
“I dare to!”
Immediately after saying that, Ethan suddenly moved!
