Chapter 1529 Identity
At the Gunderson residence, Jared gradually opened his eyes. His rapid recovery ability, combined with the pill Fernando gave him, had enabled all his wounds to close.
Staring at the luxurious room and the fluffy bed he was lying in, he knitted his brows slightly.
The last thing he remembered was losing consciousness in the martial arts arena. Thus, he had no idea what happened after that and naturally didn’t know where he was.
Upon getting up, he realized he was stark naked. However, he quickly noticed the set of new clothes laid by the bed.
After putting them on, he wanted to find out where he was. Just then, Astrid opened the door and entered, carrying a bowl of hot soup.
The sight of the awakened Jared took her by surprise. “You’re awake!”
Eyes almost popping out of their sockets, Astrid’s face had disbelief written all over it.
It blew her mind that Jared could recover and regain consciousness within two days after the debilitating injuries he suffered. “Ms. Gunderson?”
Jared, too, was taken aback by the sight of Astrid. “What is this place?”
“The Gunderson residence, of course. Where else do you think you are?” Astrid replied as she placed the soup on the table.
“The Gunderson residence? Why am I here?”
Jared was puzzled by the situation because he had no relationship or anything to do with the Gunderson family. How did I end up here?
Thereafter, Astrid related to him everything that happened after he fainted.
The thought that he could’ve died back then if not for Fernando sent a chill down Jared’s spine.
“Ms. Gunderson, thank you for the care your family has given me,” Jared replied with a grateful expression.
“No thanks are needed. The actions of the Warriors Alliance are just too despicable. Why don’t you drink that nutritious soup while I inform my father that you’re awake.”
With that, Astrid hurried out of the room.
After giving the soup a look, Jared downed it in one go and instantly felt a warm sensation course through his entire body.
He could tell that the soup was prepared with ginseng that was more than a millennium old and had plenty of other treasured medicinal herbs added. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have such a potent effect.
Consequently, Jared felt deeply indebted to the Gunderson family. Regardless of their intentions, he owed them his life and endeavored to repay his debt of gratitude.
Soon, Fernando walked into the room and was quickly greeted by Jared. “Mr. Gunderson, thank you for saving my life.”
“You’re making too much of it. It wasn’t a big deal at all. Besides, I’ve been annoyed at the Warriors Alliance for a very long time,” Fernando flatly replied.
“Mr. Gunderson, if you ever you need my help, I’ll definitely lay down my life for you,” Jared declared in a grateful tone.
“Jared, I don’t really need anything from you, but there’s something I’m curious about which I hope you can shed some light on,” Fernando replied.
“Mr. Gunderson, please ask away. I’ll tell you everything I know,” Jared agreed with a nod.
“In that case, I’ll speak candidly. Given how tough your body is, it’s clear that you’re no ordinary spiritual energy cultivator. What are you?” Fernando asked.
The question caught Jared by surprise. He knew that as a fellow spiritual energy cultivator, Fernando would definitely recognize his identity.
However, when asked what he really was, Jared was bereft of words, for he, too, was clueless about the answer.
In fact, he didn’t even know who his father was.
Assuming that Jared’s silence was because he had put the former in a spot, Fernando added, “If you can’t say, just pretend I didn’t ask. I was just curious—”
“Mr. Gunderson, it’s not that. I have no idea who I really am because I was abandoned as a child. It wasn’t until recently that I discovered my mother is the eldest daughter of the Deragons. As to my father, I have no idea who he is. That’s the reason why I can’t answer you,” Jared explained.
