Chapter 1624 The Death Of Ryker
Ryker realized something immediately. “Then, Dragon Spring had not dried up but had been stolen by you?”
He suddenly understood why the Deragon family’s most important resource, Dragon Spring, would decrease and cease to exist. It turned out that Godrick had been secretly using it.
Godrick had always been in charge of the Dragon Spring and Ryker never suspected him. Now that he thought about it, he realized that the truth was like a stinging satire.
“You traitor! I’ll never forgive you…”
Ryker was furious. He charged toward Godrick once more. However, just as he walked two steps forward, he was controlled by a strong force of attraction. Jared moved his hand and caught Ryker easily.
“How dare you deceive me?” Jared glared at Ryker before throwing a punch at him.
Fresh blood spurted out of Ryker’s mouth as his face contorted with pain. “Jared, once you kill me, you’ll never find out where your mother is…”
Ryker gritted his teeth. “Tell me. Where have you hidden my mother?”
Jared grabbed Ryker’s collar and shook him about as he yelled. “Haha. I won’t tell you. I’ll make sure that you’ll never be able to meet her…”
Ryker laughed loudly. “Ah!”
Jared punched Ryker furiously. It was as if he had lost his mind. Each punch landed on Ryker’s flesh.
Ryker’s face was destroyed, but he still refused to speak. He was clinging to his last breath, but he did not reveal where he had hidden Jared’s mother.
“Your mother has been taken by his subordinates to the Violet Cloud Palace,” Godrick revealed.
“Violet Cloud Palace?” Jared frowned. He had heard of that place before.
Previously, people from that palace had asked for his mother’s hand in marriage, but his mother escaped and was chased by the Violet Cloud Palace’s men…
“Where is Violet Cloud Palace?” Jared asked.
Godrick shook his head and replied, “I have no idea!”
Jared looked at Ryker. “Tell me! Where is Violet Cloud Palace?”
“I’ll never tell you!”
Ryker gritted his teeth and glared at Godrick.
“You don’t have to ask him. He sent four men over. When they return, you can just ask them…” Godrick suggested.
Ryker immediately started cursing. “Godrick! You’re a traitor! You won’t die a good death!”
“I’m a traitor? You didn’t even spare your biological sister. No matter what I do, I’m still better than you, who is no better than an animal…” Godrick chuckled coldly.
Ryker’s body trembled with rage. He never imagined that he would end up in such a state.
“Since you are of no use, go to hell…”
Jared directed an indifferent glance at Ryker before stomping on him.
Ryker’s head exploded, and he stopped breathing instantly.
After killing Ryker, Jared turned to look at everyone else in the Deragon family.
Everyone lowered their heads and avoided his gaze.
“Jared, you and I have the Deragon blood running through our veins. Furthermore, they don’t know anything. I hope that you won’t kill them… As long as I become the patriarch, I’ll announce to the entire martial world that we are your allies. We’ll never become your enemy,” Godrick said to Jared sincerely.
Jared stared at Godrick. He did not know if the latter was speaking the truth. However, it was true that the Deragon family members did not know what Ryker did for he committed such sins alone.
“Okay, I’ll believe you!”
Godrick was ecstatic. With Jared’s support, he would be able to secure his position as a patriarch. No one would dare to go against him.
Godrick quickly became the Deragon family’s patriarch. Jared stayed in the Deragon residence and waited for the four men to return…
