“He’s not going to let off anybody who’s a threat to him! Are you really not afraid?”
Ethan just laughed. “Then don’t you think you’re the one in the most dangerous position? I’m not interested in a fight and he knows that. But you…do you really think he doesn’t know you intend to betray him? You want to make use of me, then pick up the spoils left behind. You really make me think that the folks in the Underworld are seriously backward. This ruse of yours is really pathetic. Worse than an elementary school student.”
Darius’s face and ears turned red. He didn’t expect to be insulted by Ethan.
He opened his mouth to speak but didn’t know what to say. That was indeed his aim, and Ethan had indeed seen right through it.
“Alright, I understand what you mean.” He didn’t say anything anymore and got up. “Sorry for disturbing you.”
When he reached the door, Darius turned around and looked at Ethan. “You will come and look for me,” said Darius, then he walked out.
Ethan glanced at Darius’s back and didn’t say anything.
Darius’s sudden appearance only proved that the Underworld had existed all this time. But it never revealed any traces all these years until Greedy Wolf had appeared and returned to the Underworld.
Ethan had inherited the memories from the Dragon Throne, so Greedy Wolf had probably inherited something from the Demon King of the Underworld.
Greedy Wolf was now not only a powerful martial artist, but with the backing of something as huge as the Underworld.
If he wanted to create trouble for Ethan, then Ethan was indeed in trouble.
But Darius’s appearance had also exposed another matter. The hearts of everyone in the Underworld were not united!
“Trying to make use of someone else to get rid of your enemy is really a pathetic thing to do,” said Ethan. “Also, it’s very boring.”
Darius hadn’t revealed too much information because he had been trying to use these incomplete and useless pieces of information to trick Ethan, but Ethan didn’t fall for it.
He wasn’t going away until he saw some results. That was the least he could do.
“Do you want to send someone to follow him?” Ivan walked in. “This fellow seems to come from some mysterious background, and I’m afraid he’s trouble.”
He had an uneasy feeling in his heart.
“No need,” Ethan shook his head.
Darius said that Ethan would look for him, but he was definitely wrong.
“This fellow will come to look for me again for sure.” He narrowed his eyes. “This fellow doesn’t understand Greedy Wolf at all.”
Greedy Wolf was a very scheming and sly man who was very greedy, but he was also an extremely careful and intelligent man. He would not do anything he was not confident of.
Nobody knew each other well enough at this stage, so Greedy Wolf would not do anything rashly.
The thing he needed to do right now was to clean up the Underworld. After he found out why Darius was here, Ethan knew that the Underworld was definitely in a mess. Greedy Wolf needed time to sort the mess out, and this time he was taking was very precious to Ethan as well.
“I’m going to shut myself in for three days. Nobody is allowed to disrupt me!” said Ethan suddenly.
Ivan was a little alarmed. He could sense the urgency in Ethan’s eyes. Had something already happened?
Ethan and Darius had only spent a few minutes talking, and Darius would not have revealed any useful information. But Ethan still managed to capture a few details.
Even Darius himself would not have realized that his appearance was a signal in itself. All those tiny bits of information he revealed were meaningless to Ethan.
His biggest significance was to tell Ethan that he still had time to make preparations, but he didn’t have a lot of time left.
“Got it,” Ivan nodded. “Don’t worry, I’ll arrange for this!”
He ran out after that.
Ethan took a deep breath and sat down cross legged to look at the water in the bottle.
“Our hope is in this bottle.”
He didn’t care what Greedy Wolf was looking for or what those people from the Underworld wanted to do. The most important thing now was to be able to defend themselves. He wanted to tell Greedy Wolf that it was best that they both stay out of each other’s affairs. In order to do that, he had to become powerful enough.
Ethan himself was powerful enough. But he alone wasn’t enough to fight Greedy Wolf and all of the Underworld.
The Heavenly Palace…
Was it possible to use anything from there?
