A Man Like None Other - Season 4 Episode 61
Phoenix was furious when she heard someone was raising hell at the bar and had specifically asked for her. After all, no one, not even the prominent families of Summerbank, had the audacity to challenge her in that manner. She hurriedly gathered a few men and made her way to the bar.
In the meantime, Jared was seated comfortably on a chair and playing with his Dragon Ring while waiting for her arrival.
Tommy had reminded him previously that Dragon Sect might have a regiment in Summerbank. That was the reason why he made Orb summon the head of the Phoenix Regiment.
He was not certain if Phoenix Regiment was part of the Dragon Sect, so he wanted to find out. If they were indeed his subordinates, then he would have a much easier time in Summerbank.
After about half an hour, a lady in her thirties walked into the bar. Her hair was casually tucked into a bun and she was dressed simply in sportswear. Jared was surprised to see that Orb’s superior was a beauty, as he had expected the leader of a gang to be someone fearsome-looking. Following closely behind her were two men, and from the way they moved, it was obvious they were highly skilled fighters. Jared had no doubt they were more formidable than Orb.
“Madam…” Orb hurriedly went up to greet her.
Phoenix’s eyes swept across the messy bar, and the sight of her injured guards lying limply all over the place made her blood boil.
“Who asked to meet me, Orb?” she demanded.
“It’s me,” Jared calmly replied as he stood up.
“Who are you? What wrong have we done to you?” Although Phoenix was enraged, she had her emotions under control. She did not want to resort to violence before finding out the cause of the commotion.
“You did me no wrong.” Jared shook his head and said.
“Then why did you create trouble at my bar?” Phoenix frowned in annoyance.
Orb was breaking out in a cold sweat, worried that Jared would tell on him. He knew that if Phoenix found out what had transpired, he would definitely be punished.
Luckily for him, Jared did not say a word. He deliberately showed off his Dragon Ring to Phoenix and secretly watched her closely for any signs of recognition of the ring.
When Phoenix saw the Dragon Ring, her eyes widened in amazement, and her expression was that of surprise for a brief moment. Although she recovered her composure very quickly, that subtle change did not escape Jared’s attention. He was secretly pleased and relieved with the discovery.
All of a sudden, Phoenix shouted out an order, “I want all of you to leave the room right now! Guard all the entrances, and no one shall be allowed to enter without my permission.”
Her men were baffled, but no one would dare to question her orders. They quickly helped the injured guards out and stood guard outside the bar.
When Phoenix was left alone in the room with Jared, she went down on her knee and paid respect to him. “Greetings, My Lord! I am Phoenix from Phoenix Regiment of Dragon Sect.”
As Jared had already found out that she recognized the Dragon Ring, he was not surprised by her action. He merely smiled and said, “You may stand up.”
Phoenix respectfully stood up and waited for instructions from Jared.
“Don’t be so formal. Take a seat!” Jared pointed to a chair opposite him and poured her a drink after she took the seat.
“What brought you to Summerbank, My Lord? And what prompted your visit to Phoenix Regiment?” Phoenix asked, puzzled.
“I was forced to come to Summerbank. As for the visit to Phoenix Regiment, I was merely curious and wanted to find out if you are part of us. Do you know who our other regiments are?” Jared questioned.
