“We’ll let them pass the message on and just wait.” Leroy just stood there and turned his nose up without saying anymore.
The disciples with him also had arrogant expressions on their faces as they waited for the sect leader, Liam, to come out personally to receive them.
The feeling of being in a lofty position was really wonderful.
Liam sat inside the main hall and the Senior Elder and everyone else had also gathered.
Representatives from Titan Sect had arrived, so they didn’t dare to dilly dally. After all, Elder Jorge was still imprisoned in the prison of the Disciplinary Hall. If they got into a fight now, it wouldn’t be good news for Clearheart Sect at all.
“Leroy didn’t come straight in, so I’m afraid he’s waiting outside for us to go out and receive him! Who does he think he is?” remarked one of the elders angrily. “They are the ones in the wrong and they expect us to surrender?”
No matter how indignant he felt, he could only talk about it but couldn’t do anything about it.
“Chief O’Clear, why don’t we just release them? Then this matter won’t blow up,” said another elder as he sighed and shook his head.
Titan Sect’s message was very clear now. If this matter wasn’t settled properly, Titan Sect wasn’t going to hold back anymore.
Liam didn’t say anything and looked at the Senior Elder.
Ever since he stepped in, the Senior Elder hadn’t said a single word. His face was all scrunched up like an old tree root and all his frown lines were visible.
His hands had never moved from the armrest.
“What do you think we should do?” After a short period of silence, the Senior Elder turned to look at Ethan who had been silently drinking his own tea very calmly.
Actually, many of the other elders were unhappy that Ethan got to sit in this hall. They didn’t think that Ethan was qualified to sit here.
But to their surprise, Ethan had taken a seat and wasn’t the least awkward about it!
This man was simply too thick-skinned. He was nothing but a man who was marrying into the sect, so how could he be this arrogant?
And at the end of the day, Ethan was the one who caused this mess. But none of them had been able to stop it.
Everyone looked over but the look in their eyes differed.
“What do you mean by what we should do?” Ethan poured himself another cup of tea. “Since they like waiting, then we can let them wait.
“They’re here to apologize for what they’ve done but they didn’t even bring any gifts. At least they ought to bring some fruit, right?”
“They don’t have any manners at all. Does nobody in Titan Sect teach them any manners? Since they like to stand at the gate and wait while feeding the mosquitoes, then they can go ahead and keep waiting,” said Ethan flippantly.
The faces of the elders immediately darkened.
What nonsense was this!
Instead of settling this matter, things were going to get worse at this rate.
“Ethan, I’ve tolerated you for a long time now, but you really can’t behave immaturely like this. If you do this…”
“The Senior Elder was the one who asked me this question. If you’re not happy about it, go and look for him,” Ethan cut him off. “Also, there’s no need to tolerate me. If you want to hit me, go ahead. I won’t hold myself back either.”
“Why, you!” That elder was so angry that his beard was shaking. He pointed a finger at Ethan but couldn’t get a single word out.
Ethan was crazy enough to even hit Elder Jorge, and more importantly, nobody knew how powerful he really was. Even the elders weren’t confident of taking Ethan down.
Where did this logic defying monster come from?!
“They’ve already come all the way to your doorstep to bully you, and you’re still thinking about how to apologize to them? Don’t you find yourselves laughable?” Ethan raised an eyebrow. “I can tell you very confidently that if you give in to them now, they’ll trample all over you immediately!”
“And after they’ve trampled on you, they’d also take a piss on you to help you guys to wake up!”
Everyone’s expression looked even nastier.
It wasn’t because Ethan had said anything they didn’t like, but because they all knew that was the truth.
