After hearing what Lucas said, Jordan felt extremely touched because he felt valued by him.
But since Lucas suddenly brought up this matter, it probably wasn’t only because he needed Jordan to be in DC. “Lucas, if you’re just trying to help me, you don’t actually have to do this…”
Before he could finish speaking, Lucas immediately interrupted, “I’m not saying this just to help you either. I’ve already had plans for this matter beforehand. You should know how important the Stardust Corporation is to me. I’m very determined to get my hands on it!
“I’ve only just returned to Orange County four months ago, and the development of my power is mainly concentrated in Orange County and LA. I’ve only sent Flynn and Stanley to DC, so my manpower there is indeed a little weak. A careless mistake might cause both of them to die in DC.
“Besides, you’re my best friend whom I value the most. You’re much stronger than Stanley, and your ability to gather intelligence and analyze is superb. If you go to DC, you’ll be of great help to Flynn and Stanley. To be honest, I really can’t find a better candidate than you.”
Lucas said to him seriously, “Of course, I do hope that you and Maddy can spend more time together and solve your issues as soon as possible. Once you go to DC, you’ll be the first to know regardless of what happens to the Stones. That way, we can all be at ease. This can be considered a selfish reason of mine. You are all my brothers and friends, and I want all of you to have happy lives too!”
Jordan was touched for a while because he knew that Lucas really treated him as his brother, which was why he would say so much to him and create such an opportunity for him.
“Lucas, I’ll go. I promise I will complete all the missions and help you get back the Stardust Corporation so that you can have peace of mind!” Jordan stood up straight and said loudly with the arrogance and confidence restored within him.
Lucas smiled, patted him on his shoulder, and laughed. “You have to hurry home to pack up and then catch a flight to DC, right?”
“Hehe, that’s right! That’s right!” Jordan laughed out loud while touching his hair.
At about the same time, a silver-white plane crossed the sky at daybreak before landing slowly at San Francisco International Airport.
Soon, a middle-aged man wearing a pair of sunglasses slowly walked out of the exit with a cold and stern aura. Two extraordinarily tall and burly bodyguards were following behind him.
The three of them had an intimidating and unapproachable aura. Everyone in their path seemed to avoid them consciously because they knew that they were not to be trifled with. No one wanted to get into trouble.
Only Wendy, who had been waiting for a long time, immediately greeted the three of them with glistening eyes. “Vince, you’re finally here!”
She quickly walked up to the cold and solemn middle-aged man in front and complained with tears in her eyes, “Vince, it’s all my fault for failing to take care of Roy well. It’s all my fault that… something happened to him!”
The middle-aged man was none other than Wendy’s cousin, Vince, Roy’s father.
Although Wendy’s father was now the helmsman of the Smith family, Vince’s father was his biological brother. Thus, Vince commanded great power in the family, and he was even a strong contender for the next family helmsman.
Even Wendy, who could kill her biological nephew without even blinking, didn’t dare to be perfunctory with the stern Vince.
Since Wendy was already like this, Lance, who had gone to the airport with her, didn’t dare to show any disrespect to him at all.
Although Vince was one generation younger than him and only about the same age as his own son, Lance nevertheless greeted Vince respectfully, “Greetings, Mr. Smith.”
On the way to the airport, Wendy had already told him about the person she would be picking up today and the status he had. So Lance didn’t dare to offend this powerful big shot of the Smith family.
Vince took off his sunglasses, revealing his falcon-like eyes. Without even looking at Lance, he questioned Wendy coldly, “I just want to know how my son Roy died and where his corpse is. How did Master Eli die?”
After receiving the news of his son’s death from Wendy on the phone last night, he flew into a rage right on the spot.
Afterward, Wendy started telling him the general story of the matter while crying, but Vince was livid while they were speaking on the phone, so he hadn’t accurately grasped every detail of her story.
Thus, he immediately asked these questions as soon as he saw Wendy.
Looking at the murderous look on his face, Wendy felt a little guilty and scared.
But she soon adjusted her emotions and hurriedly told him the story that she and Lance had fabricated together.
“Roy and I just arrived in San Francisco yesterday, and I met an old friend, the helmsman of the Kingston family. We were chatting, and Roy became bored, so he went out. We found out later that Roy’s fiancée was in Orange County, so he headed there with Master Eli.
“At the time, I teased him and said that he was too childish. But I didn’t expect him never to be able to return again!
“The one who killed Roy is a young man named Lucas Gray from Orange County. As far as I know, Lucas Gray isn’t an ordinary person but an illegitimate son of the Huttons from DC. He was expelled from the family two decades ago and left to his own devices in Orange County.
“But there are indeed a few strange things about him. The people I sent last night informed me that he had indeed been living properly in Orange County, but life had been tough for him. Six years ago, his mother died, and he became the live-in son-in-law of a mediocre family in Orange County.
“But he suddenly left without saying goodbye and disappeared from Orange County until about four months ago, when he suddenly returned. He’s now very different from before.
“No one knows where he actually went during these six years and what he experienced, especially from where he learned his martial arts, but his skills are superb. So… so Roy and Master Eli weren’t able to escape his clutches!”
After speaking, Wendy raised her hand again and wiped her reddened and swollen eyes. “If I had known that Lucas Gray was so difficult to deal with, I would have kept an eye on Roy and not let him go look for him!”
Vince sneered, his voice as cold and harsh as the cold wind blowing in through the glass. “Hah, a Hutton? If he was a direct descendant of the Huttons, I might show him some respect. But he’s just an illegitimate son. Who gave him the guts to kill my son?!
“Since he has the guts to kill my son, I won’t let him off regardless of how difficult he is to deal with!”
