A Man Like None Other - Season 4 Episode 63
Lizbeth was mindlessly watching the show on the television. She had also turned on her diffuser and filled the house with a pleasant fragrance. The thought of Jared staying at her place was unnerving for her.
Knock, knock, knock…
Someone knocked on the door and Lizbeth thought it was Jared. “How thoughtless of Oliver! He should have come back with you since you don’t have the keys to my place. Thank goodness I am in. Otherwise, you would have been locked out!” she grumbled as she opened the door.
Unexpectedly, it was not Jared at the door. Two men in suits were out there, and they did not look friendly.
One of them asked, “Are you Ms. Lizbeth Grange?”
“Yes, I am.” Lizbeth nodded.
“We are from the Jantz family. Mr. Jantz would like to invite you over to his place for a chat.” However, the man’s action clearly showed it wasn’t an invitation, as he had reached out to grab Lizbeth even before she could register what he had just said.
Lizbeth was shocked by his action and instinctively backed away from him before trying to close the door on them.
However, the men were quick and dashed into the house before she could close the door.
“This is trespassing! I am from the Department of Justice, so I know the laws very well. You have no right to barge in!” Lizbeth was angered and chided them.
However, her warning fell on deaf ears, and they attempted to get hold of her again.
Lizbeth swiftly avoided them and turned around to grab hold of one of the men’s wrists. Taking advantage of the momentum, she delivered a flying kick in the direction of the other man.
Unfortunately, that man was highly skilled. With a shoulder roll, he managed to avoid her kick and at the same time, reached out and got hold of her ankle. When he tugged on her leg, she was thrown off balance and fell heavily onto the ground.
The two men then grabbed her by her shoulders and lifted her off the ground.
“Let go of me, you jerks! Let go!” She made an attempt to struggle free but was no match to the two highly skilled men.
“Ms. Grange, if you do as we requested, we will not hurt you. However, if you try to fight back, then we cannot guarantee you will not be injured in the process,” one of the men coldly threatened her.
The ruthless look in his eyes told Lizbeth he meant what he said, so she resignedly shut up and ceased her struggle.
Just as the two men were walking through the door with Lizbeth in restraint, they came face to face with Jared, who had just returned from his meeting with Phoenix.
“Jared!” Lizbeth shouted out to him in distress.
The two men gave each other a knowing look as they came under Jared’s scrutiny. Without warning, one of them sent a powerful kick at Jared.
“Look out! They’re from the Jantz family!” Lizbeth screamed.
The man who was holding on to her cuffed her hard on the back of the head, knocking her out. Thereafter, he joined his partner to attack Jared.
Jared’s eyes narrowed in anger, and he stepped forward to take them on. In one swift move, he grabbed onto their wrists, one in each hand. They were instantly immobilized and stopped in their track.
The two men were stunned. Although they were not among the best in the Jantz family, they knew they were quite formidable as a team and could easily take on martial artists with decent internal energy.
They had not expected Jared to restrain them so effortlessly, leaving them with no room to fight back.
Jared exerted strength and broke both men’s wrists without any mercy.
The two men let out agonizing screams and broke into a cold sweat.
“Why are you targeting Lizbeth, and where are you taking her to?” Jared interrogated them.
“We have no idea…” they shook their head in unison and blurted out.
