Jack did not expect Selena would say such a thing at that timing. Looking at their daughter who was already fast asleep on the bed, Jack nodded, “Of course, I would love to kiss you!”
Selena blushed as she walked toward Jack. Then, she said, “I’ll let you kiss me if you tell me the truth!”
“Are you sure? You’ll let me kiss you if I tell you the truth?” Jack frowned. He felt that things were much more complicated than it looked.
“Of course! I never go back on my words!” Selena swore.
“Alright, I’ll tell you the truth!” Jack raised his hand and swore.
“Then tell me honestly, is that girl in the mask really the Goddess of War?” Selena asked.
Jack nodded his head, “Of course. She is Lana, the only Goddess of War. It’s real!”
“Is she really your friend? Don’t lie to me!” Selena stared at Jack as though she wanted to see through everything.
Jack smiled bitterly and said, “Alright, I was actually lying previously. She’s actually not my friend!”
Selena’s face darkened as she heard his words. She was not his friend and she was rich; did Jack really become a toyboy to earn forty million dollars?
“I knew it. You’re a liar!” Selena’s eyes turned red as she felt hurt.
“I’m sorry, I just wanted to live in peace. She’s not my friend, she’s actually my apprentice!”
Jack said helplessly, “You’re the only person who knows this. I don’t want to lie to you because you’re my woman. Don’t tell mother and the rest!”
“Apprentice?” Selena was shocked. She doubted what she heard, “You’re getting more ridiculous! I didn’t believe you when you said she’s your friend, but now you say she’s your apprentice…”
“What’s so ridiculous about this? She really is my apprentice!” Jack shrugged, “You’re the one who kept pestering me to tell you. Now that I have told you, you don’t believe me!”
“Why don’t you say all nine Gods of War are your apprentice? This is ridiculous!” Selena rolled her eyes at Jack.
“Actually, what you said is true. All of them are my apprentices.” Jack did not know whether to laugh or cry, “I didn’t think you would notice. My wife, you’re incredible!”
Selena almost fainted. That guy was really shameless. When did he get the nerve to say all nine of them were his apprentice? Who did he think he was?
“I’m sick of your lies, you liar. You’re such a big fool! Oh my, why did I believe that you can bring happiness to our family? You only know how to brag!” Selena looked at Jack, turned around, and was prepared to go to bed.
“Wait!” Jack pulled her back and cornered her against the wall with one hand above her head. He stepped forward and stood closer to her body.
“You, what are you trying to do?” Flustered, Selena’s heart raced uncontrollably. Her beautiful eyes were wide open.
“You said that I can kiss you if I tell you the truth earlier. You can’t just go back on your words, can you?” Jack smirked and stared at the person in front of him.
“But…you didn’t tell me the truth. You’re still lying to me…” Selena lifted her head angrily.
