A Man Like None Other - Season 4 Episode 46
A Faraway Place
At the sight of Lizbeth suddenly growing so emotional, Josephine inquired with puzzlement on her face, “What’s wrong? Jared is really great! I know him well, and I’ve even met his parents.”
“What do you know about him? Do you know that he’s a murderer? He wiped out the Whitaker family! He’s truly ruthless!” Lizbeth blurted the truth, no longer able to hold herself back.
However, regret swamped her when she had done so. After all, it wasn’t appropriate for Josephine to know about such a thing.
She initially thought that Josephine would be shocked to learn about that. To her surprise, the latter remained calm and unruffled. Instead, she even admitted with a nod, “I know. He only did that because of me!”
“Because of you?” Mystification was written all over Lizbeth’s face.
Josephine then recounted everything she had experienced, including the incident at Yeringham.
“How despicable of that Tyrion Whitaker! Death was indeed a fitting end for him!”
After hearing the entire story, Lizbeth was so incandescent that she slammed her fist onto the table.
“Lizbeth… Don’t tell me you came to Horington this time to arrest Jared?” Josephine questioned as realization abruptly dawned upon her.
Words eluded Lizbeth for a moment, and she didn’t quite know how to answer her.
“Lizbeth, if you’re here to arrest him, don’t blame me for cutting ties with you. Besides, he was the one who saved Mr. Grange, so you can’t repay his kindness with enmity!”
Josephine’s expression turned a touch frosty.
“What? He saved Grandpa’s life?” Lizbeth exclaimed.
I never knew that!
“Of course! Go and ask Mr. Grange if you don’t believe me. However, I’m not sure about the specifics either.”
Josephine merely heard Jared mentioning it every now and then, but she had no idea what exactly happened.
Meanwhile, a myriad of emotions roiled inside Lizbeth. If he really saved Grandpa, how could I do anything to him?
She got to her feet and headed over to Walter. Seeing that, Josephine hurriedly followed behind her.
Their arrival broke the awkward atmosphere between Jared and the others.
“Why did you both come over here, Lizbeth?” Walter inquired when he spotted them.
“Grandpa, is it true that Jared once saved your life?” Lizbeth asked, cutting straight to the chase.
“Of course! Not only did Mr. Chance save me, but he even once saved Mr. Lowe and even the hundreds of thousands of citizens of Horington!”
Walter knew that Jared helped to free Glen from the control of those few businessmen and thus said as much.
“What exactly is this about, Mr. Grange?”
Shock inundated Anthony, and he felt that the man was exaggerating too much. He even saved the hundreds of thousands of citizens of Horington?
“Let’s have Mr. Lowe tell you all about this matter.” After saying that, Walter ordered someone to invite Glen over.
Upon his arrival, Glen realized Walter’s intention and so recounted the entire incident of how Jared helped him out.
That had Anthony and Lizbeth stunned and bewildered. After all, no one would easily believe such a bizarre story if they didn’t witness it with their own eyes.
Nonetheless, they had no choice but to believe it when it was Glen telling them about it since the latter couldn’t possibly be making up stories.
A long while passed before Anthony heaved a sigh and remarked, “Mr. Grange, even if we don’t arrest Jared, the Jantz family will never let him go. That aside, everyone related to him will also likely be dragged into the mess. Zachariah Jantz vowed that he’ll kill Jared’s entire family.”
The instant Anthony’s words fell, everyone went silent. The Jantz family in Summerbank was known far and wide. Everyone knew of them, and the patriarch of the Jantz family was even an internal energy Grandmaster with extraordinary capabilities. Considering the fact that Zachariah himself had spoken, this matter wasn’t going to be resolved easily.
“In that case, can we leave? We’ll go to a faraway place where the Jantz family can’t find us!” Josephine fretted.
