“We can trust those close to Lance, like Hudson and Tyler. I’ll go call them over in a minute. We’ll have more assurance that way!”
Wade quickly searched for the two of them after he thought about it.
“The competition is tomorrow, dear. Are you confident?”
At that moment, Jack had already finished registering for the competition. He, Selena, Ben, Elaine, and the others were taking a stroll along a pathway on a mountain.
“Don’t worry. I’ll be the champion no matter what. After all, I must take the Cryo Pearl. If I don’t get it by tomorrow, Fernando won’t stand a chance of living any longer!”
Jack clenched his fists. “I’ll help you brew the herbal pills after this competition is over,” he told Selena. “You should prepare yourself. Then you can become a true warrior when the time comes!”
Selena nodded her head after she heard that.
“Oh dear, Young Master White, we heard that you’re a live-in son-in-law? Tsk tsk. I never thought that a young master from the White family would fall this far. You’ve truly shamed our family!”
At this moment, Hudson had just returned from Lily’s residence and was walking over with a condescending expression on his face. He spoke in a sardonic voice.
When Jack heard that, he spoke with a cold smile, “I don’t think that it’s shameful to be a live-in son-in-law. Only those who despise themselves are shameful! Besides, I am capable enough, and I never thought about having my wife take care of me. I don’t eat my meals for free. Is that shameful?”
“Tsk tsk. Trying to convert your shame into glory, eh? Should I give you a prize for that? Live-in Son-in-Law of the Year. How does that sound?”
Hudson maintained the frosty smile on his face. “You want the Cryo Pearl, don’t you? I’m sorry to tell you this, but you don’t stand a chance to get it,” he said. “You probably don’t know how strong us masters from shadow families are. Our fighting prowess is far beyond the likes of those from the mortal realm, like you!”
“We’ll know the results tomorrow!”
Jack gave a wan smile. He could not be bothered by Hudson’s provoking. He took Selena’s hand and walked forward. “Don’t think that you’re a master simply because you’ve been training with the White family since a young age. True masters are born in constant battles. I’ve killed more men than you ever have!”
“You little punk. You’d better pray that you don’t run into me tomorrow. I’ll make you eat your words then!”
Hudson yelled after Jack and the others as their silhouettes became smaller.
Time passed by quickly. Plenty of people registered for the competition, since the top 50 contenders had prizes anyway.
Some did not hope to win the first place, but they still wanted to try their luck. After all, the chi congregation pills awarded to the top 50 contenders were enough to last for two months. It was worth a shot for them.
However, nobody thought of anything of Jack. They did not believe that he would be able to become the champion.
