A Man Like None Other Chapter 970 by desirenovel
Meanwhile, Skylar merely shot a glance at Jared and said nothing else. However, that was all it took for the latter to have an odd feeling about him. Skylar might look friendly and approachable, but Jared had instantly picked up on the dangerous aura the man was oozing.
He’s the very definition of a wolf in sheep’s clothing!
Before Warren could say anything, Skylar promptly handed an invitation card over to him. “Mr. Gordon, here’s my invitation.”
Warren remained silent as he looked at the invitation, his expression darkening with every second.
The sudden influx of participants to the Trial was stressful for Warren, but what worried him the most was the elderly man with Skylar.
I can tell that his powers are comparable to mine. If we were to find treasures in the ancient tomb and he becomes greedy, not even I might be able to stop him.
However, since the other party had shown their invitation, Warren couldn’t bar them from entering either. All he could do now was to take things one step at a time.
“Mr. Deragon, Mr. Deragon! You can’t go in without an invitation!” the two guards at the door suddenly shouted as Ryker frantically barged in.
Upon seeing that, Warren waved the guards off and hurried forward to welcome Ryker. “Mr. Deragon.”
“Dad, what are you doing here?” Edgar asked, looking utterly perplexed.
Alas, Ryker ignored them and glared at Jared, leaving everyone else scratching their heads in confusion.
“Mr. Chance, why is Ryker staring at you like that?” Theodore whispered.
“How should I know?” Jared replied with a smile. “Maybe he finds me handsome!”
Theodore didn’t believe a word of that, but he knew to stop probing when he sensed Jared’s reluctance in talking about it.
After staring at Jared for the longest time, Ryker finally averted his gaze and turned to Edgar. “Edgar, get over here!”
Pulling his son to one side, Ryker said grimly, “When the Trial starts, I want you to find an opportunity to cripple Jared.”
“What? Dad, why do you want me to do that? Has Jared done something to offend our family?” Edgar blurted out.
How odd. Why does Dad suddenly want to act against Jared Chance? Not only does the guy not look strong, but he also doesn’t have anything special about him.
“Stop asking questions and just do as I say,” Ryker snapped. “I don’t want you to kill him, though. Do you understand?”
Edgar gave his father a firm nod. “Yes. I got it.”
Even though he could feel the anger and hatred emanating from Ryker, he still couldn’t fathom what Jared could have possibly done to provoke the latter that much.
Having given his orders, Ryker went up to Warren and whispered, “Mr. Gordon, if anything happens to Jared during the Trial, I hope you’d leave it alone.”
“What do you mean by that, Mr. Deragon?” Warren asked with a worried frown. “Mr. Sanders has only just given his orders. If you were to kill Jared now, you’d be putting us in a tight spot.”
“Don’t worry, Mr. Gordon. I won’t kill him. All I want is to rid him of his powers,” Ryker said as he took out an emerald ring and secretly dropped it into Warren’s pocket.
Warren, who had already noticed the ring, nodded his approval. “As long as you don’t kill him, I can turn a blind eye to it.”
With that, Ryker shot another glare at Jared and left.
Of course, Jared was the only one who knew the reason for Ryker’s animosity. Ha! It looks like Ryker has found out that I killed the five guardians of Deragon.
By then, Edgar had also begun to fix Jared with a hostile stare.
After checking the time, Warren tidied his clothes and announced, “All right, it’s time to start the Trial. Once we’ve entered the area, please tread with caution. There are dangers everywhere, and I don’t want you guys wandering off or touching anything. If you accidentally trigger the traps, no one will be able to save you. Whether you live or die will have to be left up to fate.”
