Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2313
“Just head back first. I’ll get someone to send him home later,” replied Maddox with a wave of his hand.
Though he was clearly worried, all Lucian could do was nod as he slowly left the area. On his way out, however, he recalled what Jobson had said regarding Gerald’s strength. If the boy was strong enough to take out the elders of the three major families, then Maddox was probably nothing to him. The thought of that definitely helped Lucian relax a bit more.
Regardless, once Lucian was gone, Maddox lit a cigarette before clearing his throat as he said, “So… Any idea why I told you alone to stay back?”

“Hmm? Not the slightest idea,” replied Gerald in an indifferent tone as he lit his own cigarette before turning to look at Maddox.
“Well, not only does everyone now know that you’re staying back with me, but they’re also aware that you’re Lucian’s guest! With that said, should anything happen to me, the Grubbs will surely suffer!” scoffed Maddox as he crossed his legs, sounding like he had everything under control.
“You make a fair point,” replied Gerald.
“Of course, I do. Either way, allow me to say that I really hadn’t expected you to be daring enough to return to Yanam. Just so you know, the second we saw you out at sea, my first action was to propose to Carter to send out a fleet to end you! To think that that coward of a man would reject my idea! Had he simply listened to me, you would’ve been dead by now! You have no right to be sitting before me, got that?!” growled Maddox.
Though he said that, he couldn’t help but feel thankful that Carter had rejected his idea back then. After all, had Gerald died then, Maddox probably wasn’t going to get his chance to replace Carter as captain by claiming the glory of killing Gerald himself this soon. While he was no longer that angered by him, Maddox was still disgusted by Carter’s cowardice.
Either way, upon hearing that, Gerald simply pretended to be innocent as he said, “Come again? I don’t get what you’re saying at all!”
“Oh, cut the act. We’re the only ones here now,” replied Maddox with a wave of his hand.
Not even bothering to play along anymore, Gerald who truly felt that what Maddox was doing was meaningless simply asked, “Fine, fine… Regardless, why do you want me dead that much?”
“Glad you asked. Once news about me killing you spreads, I’ll surely be promoted to captain!” said Maddox as he got up before slowly walking around the boy.
“Do it, then,” replied Gerald as he placed his hands against his chair’s armrests while leaning back.
“While I’d love to, I’m going to be the prime suspect if I kill you here. Not to worry, you’ll definitely fall into my hands in the next few days,” said Maddox as he shook his head.
“You sound pretty sure of yourself. “
“For good reason. Regardless, know that when the time comes, you’ll surely come to me obediently,” replied Maddox.
“I look forward to it, then. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be taking my leave, deputy captain,” said Gerald as he got to his feet before tossing his cigarette butt onto the floor. The second he walked out, however, he was immediately greeted by the sight of twenty armed men, all of them aiming their sniper rifles at him.
