Jack arched his brow upon hearing Tanya’s concern. “I don’t think that’d be the case. Hector’s the head of Green Sky Hall, after all. As the head of an infamous house, how can he just go back on what he’s promised?”
Tanya, on the other hand, could not hold back from shooting Jack a sarcastic glance with her pair of big beautiful eyes. “Indeed, he’s the head of the Green Sky Hall, but their real power is not what you see on the surface. To the world, they’re all about opening spa and wellness centers, but under the surface, they make a lot of deals with dirty trades. Should we really trust such a person?”
Jack bobbed his head in agreement at Tanya’s words. “Let’s see how it goes, then. If he doesn’t learn his lesson, he’ll regret it later!”
“Alright, then. It’s pretty late now, let’s go shopping!” Tanya suggested tentatively.
Jack looked at the watch on his wrist—it was almost noon. After some contemplation, he proposed, “Okay! I have fifty thousand dollars from the Green Sky Hall. Let me treat the three of you to a nice lunch!”
“Thank you!” Tanya chortled. “Oh, right! I almost forgot! It’s payday and it’s your first time receiving your pay. The financial department will transfer your salary to you no later than this afternoon!”
Jack looked unconcerned by Tanya’s utterance. “Really? If you hadn’t said anything, I would’ve almost forgotten all about it.”
“What? It’s a salary of twenty million dollars a month! I bet this figure is the highest in the bodyguard market! How could you not look forward to it nor show any excitement at all? Worse, you almost forgot about it!”
Yvonne was tongue-tied. Even if Jack had a few million in his hand, a salary of 20 million would still be considered a huge sum of money! Yet, not even the slightest hint of excitement could be seen on his face.
It seemed that money was irrelevant to him.
“This hopeless brat. How could you forget about twenty million dollars!”
Tanya did not know whether to cry or to laugh at Jack. “Had I known you’d forget your own payday, I wouldn’t have been in such a hurry to pay you. It’s great if I could save a lot of money!”
In return, Jack flashed her the warmest smile and said, “If you don’t pay me, won’t you be afraid that one day I’d remember my salary of twenty million and spank you for not paying me?”
Jack finished his sentence with another hearty laugh before noticing that Tanya’s face had turned as red as a tomato. He then realized that he seemed to have said something wrong. Tanya was a lady, after all. Perhaps his joke was a little bit too much.
Besides, he often made fun of his apprentices this way when he was on the battlefield. Everyone in the camp was used to it, but now they were not in the camp, and Tanya was no apprentice. She was the daughter of the Drake family—the family’s most precious pearl!
Tanya’s face turned scarlet as she shot a glare towards Jack. “Hmph! You…if you dare to do so, I’ll never pay you your salary!”
“Cough, cough! Ahem! It’s just a joke. Alright, let’s go…go out to eat!”
Jack coughed awkwardly, clearly embarrassed. He then walked to his car in a serious manner in an attempt to cover up his embarrassment.
Sharon felt uneasy and uncomfortable hearing the conversation that took place between Jack and Tanya. She curled her lips, pouted, and muttered, “This idiot didn’t even look me in the eyes, and now he wants to spank Miss Tanya!”
When Tanya heard what Sharon said, she went silent. She instantly took Sharon’s hand and said, “Sharon, don’t tell me you’re jealous? He was just joking around. How could he like a little girl like me? Besides, he has a wife!”
Nonetheless, Sharon did not look satisfied with the explanation. She mumbled with a tone of disappointment, “I’m still upset! Why can’t he joke around like that with me!”
