Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2203
Looking at how dust free the warehouse now was, Gerald couldn’t help but chuckle as he said, “Not bad… So it can be used for cleaning up as well!”
Following that, Gerald found a sturdy box to sit on before closing his eyes… As he thought about Yearning Island, two hours quickly came and went. Gerald only snapped out of it when he heard footsteps in the distance, accompanied by someone yelling, “Unhand me! Don’t you know who I am?! I’ll call it even if you let me free and leave Japan immediately! Otherwise, you’ll be dead by morning!”
“Cut the cr*p and just get in already!”
Familiar with both of those voices, Gerald then watched as Aiden tossed Kai into the warehouse. Illuminated by moonlight, the pitiful Kai who was in pain slowly crawled to his feet before pointing at Aiden and yelling, “W-who even are you?! We’ve never met before! I’m sure you’ve kidnapped the wrong person!”
“While that’s true for him, the same can’t be said for us, can it now, Mr. Kanagawa?” replied Gerald from within the darkness.
Recognizing that voice anywhere, Kai immediately turned around, shuddering as he stuttered, “G-Gerald…?! What are you doing here…?”
“Why wouldn’t I be? After all, I was the one who sent him out to get you!” replied Gerald with a subtle smile.
Piecing together what was happening and realizing that he wasn’t going to get out of this place in one piece, Kai was prompted to ask, “W-what are you planning to do with me?”
“Nothing much, really. I just wanted to ask you a few questions. You see, a few days ago, an assassin attempted to take me out when I was still on the training grounds. You sent him after me, didn’t you?” replied Gerald as he shook his head before glaring at Kai, hoping to see his reaction.
As expected, Kai instantly went pale upon hearing that. After hesitating for a moment, he eventually replied, “That has nothing to do with me!”
“Is that so? Because as far as I’m concerned, the assassin admitted that you were the one who hired him.”
“Bullsh*t!” retorted Kai who knew for a fact that Vulture was professional enough to never expose his identity, even when he was seconds from death!
“So that’s your response? I see… I see…” replied Gerald, his tone as composed as ever.
Forcing on a calm façade, Kai then gulped before asking, “B-besides… Why would I send an assassin after you?”
“Hmm? Don’t you want me dead?” replied Gerald.
