Jonathan’s sharp gaze was fixed on Nolan, mixed with a touch of complexity.Top-Sky House in the past was full of talented people.A person with a lame leg like Swara could be ranked among the top seven generals, his prowess not inferior to Roderick’s.If it came to a contest of strength, perhaps only Roderick and Jacob could defeat Nolan!Originally, Top-Sky House, with such an abundance of talent, should have flourished.However, everything changed after Wolfgang went to prison.Like a snake without a head, everyone pursued different things.The seven strongest generals who once protected Top-Sky House each went their separate ways for their own interests.The three kings of the Southwest, Phelim, Roderick, and Jacob, all rose to prominence thanks to the foundation of Top-Sky House.The eldest among the seven generals passed away due to old age, while another lost hope and vanished, likely never to return.As for Nolan, he was the most peculiar.Despite his lame leg, he still held a
Tears welled in her eyes when Esther woke up the next day, thinking of the previous night.Ultimately, she couldn't escape... but her body was still clean and intact, showing no signs of violation. Esther's cold heart suddenly flickered with a glimmer of light. Did Clinton spare her last night?But suddenly, a voice rang out:"If my people had arrived just one step later, Clinton might have humiliated you. Esther, don't you have my phone number? Didn't you think to call me when you encountered such a situation?"It was Jonathan's voice. So, it was Jonathan who saved her."I, I didn't want to bother you! Oh, right. Did Clinton give you any trouble?"Esther now understood the situation. As Jonathan had said, he had helped her escape the jaws of a tiger last night.This would undoubtedly lead to conflicts.Would Jonathan confront Clinton?"Clinton won't be a problem for me. Alright, eat your porridge. It'll help sober you up. Once you've finished, I'll have someone take you back to your
Jonathan immediately revealed a deep and mysterious smile.He sighed and said: "Mr. Johnson, I honestly don't understand why you're so keen on being the owner of Top-Sky House. It's to be a hot potato. In less than two months, Augustus will head south, and the leader of Top-Sky House will face a crisis. I want to step down, but you seem to want that position. Is it that great?"Roderick laughed, saying: "You can't feel the back pain when standing and talking. How would I know if it's good or not if I haven't tried it? It's like women – looking at their beauty isn't enough. You must try them out to see if they're a good match. I want to try."The atmosphere in the room seemed harmonious, but in reality, it was tense and full of gunpowder.Roderick's attitude was firm. If he didn't return to Top-Sky House, he would cut off all ties and become a king in his empire.On the contrary, he would only return triumphantly if allowed to be the leader.In truth, this wasn't the issue.Jonathan st
If he were to cause trouble at the Clarke family party, he wouldn't be able to bear the consequences."Investigate a man named Jonathan Wang for me. Also, temporarily suspend all promotion channels for 'Big City.' If Win'X Cultural Company has any complaints, tell them to come to find me! I want Esther to kneel and beg me!"It took a while before Clinton made a phone call.It had rained during the day, making the evening temperature relatively low.There was a cold wind, and not many people were outside.Esther slightly huddled, feeling the chill, but her heart felt even colder."I also witnessed dirty things in the entertainment industry when I was young. At eighteen, people began to have ulterior motives toward me. That was when my contract with the company expired, and I decided to listen to my father, withdraw from the industry and become an ordinary person. But unexpectedly, I couldn't leave this world. Jonathan, you must be laughing at me."Disappointment filled Esther's words.
Jonathan and Roger were unfamiliar faces here, so no one came to greet them. Thus, they casually found a spot and enjoyed a glass of champagne.“Judging by the scale of this event, Isaac dotes on his granddaughter.” Jonathan observed the brightly lit room and casually commented.The higher one’s position, the more one hates exposing family affairs. Isaac wouldn’t have organized such a grand birthday party if he didn’t truly love his granddaughter.“That’s right. Her grandfather must dearly love Grace!” Roger replied.The two briefly discussed the party before quickly changing the subject.They were here for Isaac, not Grace, so there was no need for extensive commentary about a twenty-year-old girl.“Jonathan!”Not long after, someone suddenly called Jonathan’s name.Surprised, Jonathan glanced over and saw an excited person approaching.Unexpectedly, he encountered Esther here today.Today, Esther wore a black evening gown that looked very elegant.Her face lit up upon seeing Jonatha
Soon, only a few people remained in the meeting room.Jonathan, Roger, and a man named Christopher. He was a man in his mid-thirties and the head of the Combat Department."I originally thought that only Zachary from the Assault Department wouldn't welcome me, but I didn't expect Isaac to be displeased with my return as well. Luckily, you didn't follow their lead and tried to humiliate me. Otherwise, I would have lost all my dignity." Jonathan said with a smile, looking at Christopher.Given the complex situation, he knew that his return to the Top-Sky House was not warmly greeted.What he didn't expect was that so many people would disrespect him.Although those who appeared today were the top leaders of Top-Sky House, they could only represent themselves.Only Zachary, Isaac, and Christopher could represent the power of the three factions within the Top-Sky House."What about you? How do you perceive me?" Jonathan asked with a smile. If Christopher were unwilling to submit to him at
San Francisco was immersed in a sea of people tonight.Fortunately, they went out early tonight, leaving the house at around seven-thirty, or it would have been challenging to find an ideal spot to watch the fireworks by the river.Due to the large number of people passing by, the outdoor bars by the river were closed. To protect the fireworks, one could only find a place to stand.Because of the crowd, Jonathan held Curtis in his arms, not daring to let her down. Adela walked closely beside him.They genuinely looked like a family of three.“In the kitchen earlier, I saw Aunt Sienna talking with you. What were you two talking about?” Jonathan initiated a conversation while waiting for the fireworks to begin.“Does it have anything to do with you?” Adela asked back, but her cheeks flushed pink.It certainly did.Tonight’s conversation topics between her mother and her revolved around Jonathan.But how could she let Jonathan know about this?“Fair enough!”Seeing that Adela did not wan
Handing over San Diego and all its industries?Knox's mouth dropped open, unable to comprehend the situation.The most crucial aspect was that Knox recognized Jonathan's status could make Mr. Lewis - who was incredibly influential, force him to be deferential.He had also heard of the organization called Top-Sky House.Damn, it!To retaliate against someone with such a terrifying background was a challenge. Knox should consider himself lucky if he wasn't targeted for revenge!Jonathan glanced at Jacob and slowly lit a cigarette. Holding it between his fingers, he spoke harmlessly: "Jacob, don't forget. If you lose, you must return everything you took from Top-Sky House, and I will also take your legs. Is kneeling really that important compared to spending the rest of your life in a wheelchair?"Bang!Suddenly remembering the price of losing included his legs, Jacob's face involuntarily turned extremely grim."You...you shouldn't bully others too much!"Jonathan's smile deepened as he
