General Jenkins puffed out his chest and declared arrogantly, “I am none other than the Deputy General of the White Tiger Army, under the command of Chief General Spanner. No matter who that bastard may be, I can
take him down easily. Just wait and see!”
As soon as he finished speaking, his phone ringtone began blasting.
The first phone call came in. “Hello, General Jenkins. This is Hunter Anderson speaking. You’ve captured someone you shouldn’t have. You should let him go immediately. Maybe you can still save yourself.”
“Who the fuck do you think you are? How dare you order me around? Fuck off!” General Jenkins replied.
promptly ending the call.
“Seems like someone called to beg for Dustin’s life.” Jade said sarcastically. She’d long predicted something like it would happen.
“Hmph, they think they can get him out of my hands? It’s not going to be that easy!” General Jenkins pursed his lips. With the backing of the Grant family, only a handful of people in the entire Southern province could
At that moment, the second phone call came in. “General Jenkins, I’m calling on behalf of the Harmon family. One of my associates was captured by your subordinate. I believe there must have been some kind of misunderstanding. I kindly request that you release him, General.”
“That’s not going to happen! Dustin’s crimes are unforgivable. I’ve already turned him over to the Ministry of
Penalties. No matter who comes to beg for his life, it’s useless!”
However, things didn’t end there.
After the second call, the third one soon came, followed by the fourth, then the fifth. They just wouldn’t stop.
“Hello. General Jenkins, this is Roderick Brooks —”
“General Jenkins, I’m calling on behalf of the Glenstead Nicholson family
“Jenkins, I have a favor to ask
Calls started pouring in one after another. Not only were they increasing in numbers, but they were also
becoming more pressing.
At first, General Jenkins had been greatly irritated, but by the end, even military officers of the same rank as him were calling him to plead for mercy. Although he wasn’t scared, it was still rather troublesome.
Eventually, he turned his phone off. He couldn’t be bothered any longer.
“Punk, I didn’t think you had such a network. I underestimated you.” He slowly raised his head to reveal a cold
smile. “Unfortunately, your efforts are in vain–I can hold them off all on my own!”
“Oh, really? Then I’m looking forward to seeing you do that.” Dustin smiled lightly.
“Hmph. And I want to see what kind of tricks you have up your sleevel” General Jenkins said disdainfully.
Just as he spoke, an officer suddenly hurried over. “General, the Murray family is here!”
“The Murray family? Who is it?” General Jenkins raised an eyebrow in surprise.
“He introduced himself as Adjutant General Damon. He said he wishes to speak with you,” the officer replied.
“Adjutant General Damon? What’s he doing here?” General Jenkins face grew solemn. He clearly looked a little apprehensive.
Others might not know it, but he knew for a fact that Adjutant General Damon served as Christopher’s personal guard.
And who was Christopher?
He was the second–in–command general of the current generation!
He was the backbone of the Murray family!
Even though Christopher had been discharged, he still held a great influence within the army.
He wasn’t exaggerating when he said he would even treat Christopher’s dog with the utmost respect..
After a few seconds of silence, General Jenkins decided to go outside and welcome Adjutant General Damon. Come, let’s go take a look.”
When he–along with his men–went to the entrance of the base, he saw a casually–dressed middle–aged man in glasses standing there quietly. The elegant man looked like any average guy, but hidden behind his glasses were eyes as sharp as an eagle’s.
“Why, if it isn’t Adjutant General Damon? What brings you here? General Jenkins said, stepping forward with a grin. He was just about to offer some small talk when Adjutant General Damon raised his hand and slapped him to the floor.
