MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 6 - Season 9 Episode 89
“Congratulations!” Lucas congratulated her with a smile.
In fact, Lucas knew about this matter way before Alexis. She had indeed succeeded in applying for a job, but Lucas wouldn’t tell her that her position wasn’t an ordinary role. She would be the assistant of the general manager of the Stardust Corporation.
Alexis was the granddaughter of Edmund Cole, and Lucas had always been close to the Coles, whom he trusted very much.
Moreover, although Alexis was still young, having just turned twenty, and only a senior student in college, she was very intelligent and had grown up beside Edmund, who influenced her greatly with his business acumen. Thus, Lucas thought it would be a waste of talent if she was a junior employee.
Besides, if Alexis became the general manager’s assistant, she would not only be able to help Flynn greatly, but she would also be able to gain a lot of experience. If she was trained well, she would be of great help to Lucas in the future.
It was just like Charlotte, who, despite being young, became competent in speaking and handling matters at the Stardust Corporation’s Orange County branch after a few months of experience.
Alexis asked Lucas out for a meal together, and Lucas naturally agreed. The restaurant she chose was near the university she went to.
The two of them hadn’t seen each other for a long time, so they chatted merrily. Of course, most of the time, it was Alexis telling Lucas joyfully about the matters happening in DC while Lucas listened patiently with a smile.
After they finished eating, the sky was completely dark.
Lucas walked Alexis to the entrance of her university and waved goodbye to her.
Suddenly, a change occurred!
A strong and violent breeze suddenly blew toward them.
Lucas’s expression changed as he immediately held Alexis’s waist without hesitation. He tapped his foot against the ground, and they immediately vanished from where they were standing.
A series of soft collision sounds sounded from where they had been standing.
The flat and clean stone ground was suddenly covered with more than ten steel nails that were over five centimeters long. Who knew from which contraption they were shot out. They hit the ground with so much force that they almost penetrated the stone ground!
Under the light, the steel nails had a faint blue glow to them. They had obviously been soaked in poison.
If Lucas hadn’t reacted quickly enough, he and Alexis would have been shot by these nails!
“Hah, you escaped fast enough!” A cold and sinister voice sounded as a lean and muscular figure gradually walked out of the shadows near the school gate.
He glared at Lucas with a sinister gaze containing endless murderous intent.
“Who are you?” Lucas frowned.
He let go of Alexis and gestured for her to stand in a safe position farther away to avoid being affected.
Alexis was so frightened by the sudden action and the terrifying steel nails that her hands and feet were a little weak.
But she also knew that she would only be in the way if she stayed beside Lucas, so she hurriedly hid under a large tree nearby.
“Hah, you don’t need to know who I am. You only need to know that I’m here to take your life!” The person who came sneered. He clenched fists and suddenly charged toward Lucas!
This man wasn’t slow at all, and the massive murderous intent he was exuding was extremely shocking.
He was much stronger than Julian York, one of the top ten experts of the Peerless Martial Association, and Invincible Phantom Hands, the expert of the Smiths!
A grim look appeared in Lucas’s eyes as he analyzed which enemy had sent this powerful man.
The only forces in DC that had a grudge against him were the Huttons and the Peerless Martial Association, as well as the Smiths and the Howards.
But Tyson had just pledged allegiance to him, so there was no way he would have turned against him so quickly. The Howards and Lucas had reached a cooperation of sorts, so they wouldn’t suddenly attack him at this point.
As for the Peerless Martial Association, they were extremely high profile. Their members all had the association’s logo embroidered on the back of their black suits, which made them distinguishable at a glance.
The powerful man was wearing a black compression suit.
Based on the process of elimination, this man was very likely to be an assassin the Huttons sent.
When Lucas thought of the enormous loss Jace had suffered in the afternoon, it wasn’t strange that he would send someone to assassinate him!
Lucas’s analysis was only momentary.
At this moment, the lean man arrived in front of Lucas and swung his large fist at him.
“You’re overestimating yourself!” Lucas sneered, raised his fist, and punched him.
His fists suddenly collided with a violent explosion.
Lucas’s hair was lifted up by the air stirred up from the collision between their fists, but he remained standing firmly on the spot.
On the other hand, the lean man was immediately sent flying by Lucas’s punch. After he landed, he retreated more than ten steps before barely stabilizing himself and reducing the massive force from Lucas’s punch.
This scene made Alexis, who was hiding far behind the tree, widen her eyes in shock.
The difference in strength was too terrifying!
The lean man managed to stand steady, but he felt excruciating pain in his chest.
In particular, the bones of his right hand had been broken, and his hand was still trembling violently. It was clearly impossible for him to throw another punch.
His eyes were full of shock and disbelief.
The burly man was none other than Bones of Steel, who followed Jace and had offered to kill Lucas!
As a top expert who protected the future successor of the Huttons, Bones of Steel was naturally competent.
Even in DC, he was considered one of the top ten or even top five experts!
Furthermore, apart from his martial arts skills, Bones of Steel also had a unique secret contraption installed on his forearm. He could use it to shoot steel needles, which often resulted in a favorable effect.
Due to the powerful mechanism that the steel nails were shot out of, they were extremely fast, comparable to bullets. The steel nails were even coated in poison, making them even harder to guard against. Countless experts had died under this move of Bones of Steel.
This was why Bones of Steel was so confident as to take the initiative to help Jace kill Lucas. He firmly believed that he could do it.
But Lucas dodging the hidden weapon attack at the beginning with his lightning-fast speed and his punch made Bones of Steel astonished.
Only now did he feel that both he and Jace had underestimated Lucas’s true strength!
Lucas looked at Bones of Steel coldly. “Go back and tell Jace Hutton that if he dares to provoke me again, I will kill him regardless of his identity!”
