Chapter 1510 Virginity
Suddenly, over ten slashes of sword energy vanished in a split second.
“Who is it?” Astrid’s expression changed drastically as she looked around frantically.
Lachlan was confused as well because he could feel that the person who shot out the golden beam just now was extraordinarily skillful.
“Ms. Gunderson, you’re a lady. Shouldn’t you be less violent?”
Just then, a figure could be seen walking toward them slowly.
After seeing who the figure was, they were immediately dumbfounded.
“Jared, y-you’re still alive?” Howard regained his senses and dashed toward Jared, giving the latter a tight hug.
“M-Mr. Chance, you…” Lachlan was too excited to utter any words after seeing Jared.
Only Astrid was staring at Jared with a complicated expression.
After Jared chatted for a short while with Howard, he looked at Astrid and asked, “What’s wrong, Ms. Gunderson? Why do you want Howard dead?”
Astrid retorted furiously, “That animal drugged me and took advantage of me! Do you still think I shouldn’t kill him?”
“I didn’t do that, Jared! I really didn’t! There’s no way I would do something like that!” Howard explained desperately.
Jared raised his hand slightly to stop Howard’s explanation. “Ms. Gunderson, you’re still a virgin now. How can you accuse Howard of taking advantage of you?”
“How is that possible?” Astrid was stunned. I was clearly naked when I woke up. How can I still be a virgin?
“Do you think I’m lying to you? If so, you can just look at your left arm!” With that, Jared channeled a cloud of spiritual energy into Astrid’s body. Soon, a red mark appeared on her left arm.
Seeing that mark, Astrid became emotional. “I-Is this the red mark of virginity?”
“That’s right. Since your red mark of virginity is still intact, how can you not be a virgin?” Jared asked.
Astrid was at a loss for words. Yet, she still stated in anger, “Howard tricked me into going to a hotel with him, then he drugged me and removed my clothes. These are all undeniable facts.”
“Ms. Gunderson, this must be a misunderstanding. When did I go to a hotel with you? It really wasn’t me…” Howard defended himself with an aggrieved look.
“A misunderstanding? I did go to the hotel with you. How can I be wrong about that?” Astrid also spoke with conviction, showing she was telling the truth.
Jared frowned slightly. He studied Howard’s expression and thought the latter wasn’t lying. Yet, the look on Astrid’s face didn’t make her seem like she was lying either.
There must be a misunderstanding.
Suddenly, a thought occurred to Jared. Hence, he asked Astrid, “Ms. Gunderson, do you know there is a skill called the disguise technique in this world?”
“What do you mean?” Astrid was confused.
“I think there must be a misunderstanding. Perhaps someone disguised themself as Howard and tricked you into going to the hotel. Maybe they did this to instigate a fight between Howard’s family and yours,” Jared analyzed the situation.
Astrid fell into a deep silence. After a while, she said, “I will look into this matter. If it really was Howard’s doing, I will not spare his life.”
“Ms. Gunderson, I will end my own life to pay for my sins if I am the culprit,” Howard declared with determination.
Astrid didn’t know what to do next, so she had no choice but to leave. Everything could wait until she had investigated the matter thoroughly.
“Thank you so much, Jared. Please come in and tell me what you’ve been up to recently.” As soon as Astrid had left, Howard dragged Jared to his room impatiently.
Jared told Howard everything he had been through, hiding nothing.
After hearing that Jared was the one who eliminated over ten sects and prestigious families in Jadeborough, Howard was too stunned to speak.
