Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Lucas Gray, I have to admit that you are indeed powerful, which makes it even more impossible for me to return your daughter to you! As I said just now, if I return your daughter, you will immediately attack. I won’t return her to you. Even if you don’t dare to kill me and decide to cripple me instead, how can I agree to that? Your daughter is my life-saving ace!”
Lucas’s eyes were brimming with anger, but he tried to contain it and said seriously, “Just now, you mentioned that it was Scarlet Wright’s idea to abduct my daughter and threaten Charlotte. In that case, there’s no unresolvable grudge between us. As long as you let Amelia go, I promise I won’t touch you at all!”
“Hahahaha! I don’t believe you! At least, if I were in your shoes and possessed such great power, I’d never let someone who dared to offend me like this off!” Logan guffawed without restraint.
Lucas narrowed his eyes. “Since you’re aware of how powerful I am, aren’t you afraid that I’ll pay you back in your own coin by going to the Hales and abducting them to threaten you?”
When Jordan heard this, he immediately stood at the door. He looked as though he would go and nab the Hales right away once Lucas gave the order.
But to their surprise, Logan remained unfazed. He even tilted his head and chuckled. “Go ahead and catch them. I’m still a bachelor, and my mother died a long time ago anyway. As for the rest of the Hales, you can catch them and kill them as you wish. I won’t bat an eyelid at all. In fact, if you really end up killing them, I’d still have to thank you. Hahahaha!”
Lucas frowned. He didn’t expect Logan to be such a cold and heartless person who showed no concern for his family.
Jordan couldn’t help but sneer. “No wonder you always behave like a beast. It turns out you really are one. You don’t even care about your family who raised you! Lucas, I think you shouldn’t waste your breath on talking to him anymore. Just break his legs. If he still refuses to come clean, torture him and chop off his fingers one by one. We’ll see if he confesses then!”
With some delirium in his eyes, Logan laughed loudly. “Haha, go ahead and try then! I dare to guarantee that what you will do to me, I will do to your daughter! I’m an adult and can still bear with it, but I’m afraid your delicate daughter will die the instant I chop her arms and legs off! Just you wait to collect her corpse!”
“You!” Jordan was enraged and wanted to slap Logan a few times.
However, as Logan said, Amelia was in his hands, so they indeed didn’t dare to take the risk with Amelia’s life.
Lucas’s face turned dark. “What exactly do you want? You can’t keep my daughter by your side forever, can you? You can hide her for one or two days, but can you do so forever?”
Logan spat a mouthful of smoke with a smug and detestable expression on his face. “You don’t have to worry about that. I’ve naturally arranged a reliable person to take care of her. I won’t let anything happen to her. When the day comes that I think I’m safe enough, I’ll let her go. Don’t worry. I’m not going to hold someone else’s daughter captive for the rest of my life. If she becomes my wife one day, I’d have to call you my father-in-law! That’d be a huge loss for me!”
Lucas’s eyes were instantly full of murderous intent.
Amelia was merely a five-year-old child, and yet this beast actually had the cheek to say something like that!
“When you think you’re safe? How can you confirm it?” Lucas asked coldly.
“I’ll naturally have to wait until all your subordinates disperse and your underlings die!” Logan smiled arrogantly. “Don’t worry. I will retaliate against you with all my might next and destroy you! As long as your daughter is still in my hands, you won’t be able to retaliate against me. Once I reach my agenda, I will naturally release her. Of course, if you don’t wish to comply, you can forget about your daughter.”
Logan blatantly revealed his plan to deal with Lucas because he was certain that Lucas loved his daughter dearly. Even if Lucas knew that he wanted to kill him, there was nothing he could do.
“Okay, I won’t say any more nonsense. In all, you can forget about taking your daughter home now!” Logan stood up arrogantly and walked toward the door of the private room.
“Hold it right there!” Jordan stopped Logan in his tracks.
Logan wasn’t annoyed. He simply glanced at Lucas nonchalantly with raised brows. “What? You don’t want to let me go? Do you want to fight me until we both perish? Don’t forget. If I die, your daughter won’t live either!”
Lucas waved his hand at Jordan. Despite being full of reluctance, Jordan glowered at Logan before moving to the side to let him leave.
“Remember what you said today. Take good care of my daughter and don’t let her suffer any mistreatment. If I find out that you’ve mistreated and bullied her, I definitely won’t let you off.”
Lucas’s words seemed harsh, but he was helplessly conceding to Logan’s conditions.
Logan was naturally extremely smug and chuckled. “Of course! She’s my life-saving trump card. Of course I’d treat her well. After I’ve completely trample you under my feet, I’ll naturally let you two reunite. Hahahaha!”
Logan laughed loudly as he strode away with a triumphant smile on his face.
Lucas and Jordan had never had to tolerate such defiance before. Utterly enraged by Logan’s arrogance, Jordan snapped, “Lucas, that scum is obviously using Amelia as a hostage to go against you. You can’t trust his words at all!”
Lucas let out a long sigh. “What can I do? Amelia is in his hands, so I can’t touch him. It’s a Herculean task to find Amelia! We can only obey him for now. I hope he keeps his promise!”
Jordan had an expression of great disbelief.
He did not expect that Lucas, the captain of the Falcon Regiment who persevered through hardship and made incredible achievements in the state of Calico despite the harsh circumstances he was subjected to, would concede so easily under Logan’s threat!
At this moment, Jordan noticed Lucas shooting him a glance and then turning his head. He looked in the direction of Lucas’s gaze and discovered that there was an inconspicuous black button-like object on the wall. It was a listening device!
Jordan immediately realized that Lucas had merely pretended to concede and deliberately said those words to Logan just now!
