Chapter 1099: Mother’s Secret
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The black-clothed assassin was just a hired killer, not a soldier who would risk his life to complete his mission at all costs. So after seeing the bad situation, he immediately thought of retreating. He turned around and fled.
The assassin thought, Given my speed, even if I can’t beat them, I can escape easily—
But the next second, a sharp sound of something cutting through the air charged straight toward the back of his head.
The assassin was shocked and immediately moved to dodge, but it was already too late. A sharp rock penetrated his head from the back, instantly mangling the flesh of his brain and killing him.
The assassin was still in the posture of running forward when he suddenly fell to the ground and turned motionless.
“Tsk!” Jordan sighed and said with displeasure, “Lucas, you already said that you would leave this person to me to deal with. I haven’t even put out any real moves yet!”
Lucas said, “He was a top expert from Flame Dragon and already decided to escape. Even if you could catch up with him, it’d be too troublesome. I might as well just kill him.”
Normally, Lucas would have let Jordan deal with the assassin to practice his skills. But at this moment, Lucas just wanted to catch Jace as soon as possible and find out about his mother’s secret. He didn’t want any other trouble to arise.
“Okay then.” Jordan could only nod and walk to the Mercedes-Benz, only to discover that Jace was no longer inside.
“Huh? That punk was so scared that he soiled himself. He has the guts to run away?” Jordan was slightly surprised.
But he was not the least bit worried that Jace could have run far away within such a short time.
The moment he saw Lucas looking at the pile of garbage bags nearby, Jordan immediately understood.
“Damn it. He’s actually hiding somewhere so dirty!” Jordan pursed his lips and walked toward the bags of garbage.
He threatened coldly, “Are you going to get out yourself, or do you need me to drag you out?”
No one made a sound.
Jace had buried himself in the pile of pungent garbage and hoped that no one would find him.
But he had forgotten that his entire body was trembling out of immense fear, and the plastic garbage bags around him kept rustling softly. He was probably the only one who thought that no one would be able to find him.
“Damn it! Are you pretending to be dead? If you don’t come out, I’ll kick you until you’re dead!” Jordan roared and kicked away a garbage bag blocking Jace’s head.
“Ah! Ah… d-don’t kill me! Help! Don’t kill me!” Jace was terrified out of his wits and screamed loudly with his eyes closed.
Jace had long lost the airs and arrogance of a wealthy scion. Now, he was covered in filth, and apart from the stench of his own excreta, there was also the filth from the garbage heap he had crawled into. He was dirty and disheveled as he huddled in the garbage heap while begging for mercy. He was unbearably unsightly.
Lucas glanced at him coldly and instructed Jordan, “Get him to shut up and take him somewhere clean to speak.”
“Yes, Lucas!” Without saying another word, Jordan stepped forward and kicked Jace’s neck.
Jace’s eyes immediately rolled backward as he fainted.
Ten minutes later, in an unoccupied house in DC, Lucas was sitting on the couch in the living room while Jordan shoved Jace under the showerhead in the bathroom and rinsed him thoroughly under the running cold water.
The cold water woke Jace up. As soon as he opened his eyes, he saw Jordan’s terrifying face and immediately wanted to scream.
“Shut up! If you dare to scream again, I’ll kill you right now even without Lucas’s instructions!” Jordan shouted coldly, making Jace shut up.
After Jace was mostly clean, Jordan picked him up, carried him into the living room, and threw him in front of Lucas.
Jace looked up in panic and saw Lucas sitting on the couch in front of him, looking at him with a hostile expression. Flustered, he immediately asked, “Lucas Gray, what… do you want to do?”
“You should know!” Lucas stood up and looked at Jace from above coldly. “You’d better explain honestly about my mother’s matter! If you dare to lie to me, I’ll kill you immediately!”
A formidable killing intent emerged in Lucas’s eyes.
Frightened by Lucas’s gaze, Jace huddled on the floor and stammered, “I… I actually, I actually don’t know what your mother’s secret is at all! The reason I said that last time was because I was… afraid you would kill me. That’s why I made it up!
“I… don’t know your mother well at all. How could I possibly know her secret? I really don’t know anything!
“Lucas… please just let me off this time on account that we’re born to the same father! I promise I’ll never trouble you again in the future, and I can even never appear in front of you again!
“If that’s not enough, then I… I can obey your orders and do whatever you ask me to do. Even if you tell me to kneel and lick your shoes, I’m willing!”
Then Jace even kneeled on the floor, looked at Lucas’s leather shoes, moved his head forward, and stuck out his tongue.
Jace had already decided to go all out. In order to survive, he completely abandoned his dignity as a scion of the Huttons.
But Lucas was disgusted by the thought of Jace licking his shoes!
So he kicked Jace without hesitation and hollered, “That’s disgusting! Let me ask you one last time. What do you know about my mother?
“I’m warning you. My patience is limited! If you hide anything and try to deceive me again, I will kill you immediately!
“As for us being half-brothers… Hah, you should know very well that you have never considered me your brother, and likewise, I have never considered you my brother!
“I’m giving you one last chance now. If you honestly tell me everything I want to know, I can spare your life. But if you insist on not telling me anything or lying to me, you will die here!”
Lucas’s loud voice was as cold as ice.
Jace spat out a mouthful of blood after being kicked by Lucas. He knew that Lucas wasn’t lying. Lucas really dared to kill him!
If he didn’t tell the truth now, he would really die here!
Jace gritted his teeth and finally said, “I… I’ll tell you everything I know! Just before you and your mother were kicked out of the family twenty years ago, I overheard my parents arguing. At the time, my mother said, ‘That woman’s son isn’t your child. Why do you want to keep them in the family?’
“That… that’s all I remember. I don’t know if my mother was talking about your mother when she said that woman!
“Anyway, my mother was really mad that day, and a few days later, you and your mother were kicked out of the Huttons.
“I was only ten at the time, and there are many things I don’t know. When I asked my parents about it later, they forbade me from mentioning it again or telling anyone else about it.
“That’s all I know! Really! I’m definitely not lying to you!”
Jace assured repeatedly, afraid that Lucas wouldn’t believe him.
