A Man Like None Other - Season 4 Episode 67
On My Account
Master Iron frowned lightly, amazed to see how Jared was unaffected by his display of power. He knew the wave of energy he had just emitted was formidable, and most martial artists with good internal energy would find it hard to withstand the force. He could not believe that Jared appeared totally unfazed.
“You are indeed something, young punk! Sadly, it is me you are against today, so your fate is sealed!”
With that, he gathered all his energy, let out a roar, and threw a terrifying wave of energy toward Jared. His disciples, once again, retreated further to get out of harm’s way.
“Is that all you are capable of? If you have nothing better to offer, I’ll be taking my leave first.” Jared threw Master Iron a disdainful look and started walking away.
Master Iron was momentarily stunned and also embarrassed by Jared’s action. It was too humiliating to be looked down upon by a young punk in the face of his disciples. He could not afford to lose his reputation and their respect.
“Die, you brat!” He charged forward furiously, bringing tremors to the ground, and threw a punch at Jared.
Jared stopped in his track, and without even turning back, he let loose a frightening burst of energy which caused Master Iron to tumble backward, cracking the ground in the process.
Master Iron’s face fell as he stared at Jared in disbelief. He hadn’t expected a young man like Jared could possess such prowess.
He tried to go against Jared’s energy and move forward but failed. All he could do was root himself to the ground to avoid falling backward. He directed all his energy to his feet to stabilize himself, sinking his feet deep into the ground.
“Didn’t you like to smother your opponents with powerful energy? Let me give you a taste of your own medicine.” Jared turned around and gave Master Iron a cold stare.
Suddenly, a few cars sped toward them, and Lizbeth shouted as she alighted from one of the cars after it came to a screeching stop. “Stop! Stop it right there!”
Anthony and a big group of investigators from the Department of Justice also hurriedly alighted from their respective cars and came running toward them.
When Jared saw that it was Lizbeth, he immediately withdrew his burst of energy to avoid hurting her. Master Iron instantly felt the suffocating pressure lifted off him and stumbled backward.
“Are you all right, Jared?” Lizbeth anxiously asked.
“I’m fine. What brings you here?” he asked, puzzled.
“Well, when I woke up, I found you and the two men from the Jantz family missing. I was worried you will go stir up trouble with the Jantzs, so I contacted General Long and wanted to go to your rescue!” Lizbeth gave him a dirty look and grumbled.
Seeing how worried she looked, Jared felt apologetic. “I only sent the two men back to the Jantz family. I did not stir up any trouble. Sorry to have caused you to worry,” he said.
“It’s okay. What matters most is that you’re fine!” Lizbeth was relieved. Next, she turned to Master Iron and explained, “Master Iron, I was there when Jared killed Jason. I can vouch that Jason was the one who started it first. He even tried to attack me. Jared killed him out of self-defense, so you should not put the blame on Jared!”
Master Iron threw her a dirty look and said, “Ms. Grange, on account of your grandpa, I would not make things difficult for you. However, you need to stay out of this. I must finish him off today!” There was a crazy look of menace in his eyes as he said that.
“Master Iron, as Lizbeth had explained, it was Jason who started it first. Jared was not at fault. I know it must be painful for you to lose a disciple, and it is understandable for you to be angry. But can you do me a favor and let Jared off the hook? I will get him to apologize to you!” Anthony stepped forward and tried to appease him.
Anthony was in charge of the Department of Justice, and with his status, most people would not want to make things difficult for him.
