Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2316
“What else can we do? We wait for news to come, of course! Do you really think it’s that easy to expose Maddox? Do you take him as a fool?” replied Gerald as he ruffled Aiden’s hair.
Brushing Gerald’s hand off, Aiden then said, “… So… We really can’ t do anything…?”
“Precisely. Look, it’s pretty much confirmed that Maddox has Lindsay with him now, so all that’s left to do is to wait for his news. It probably won’t be a long wait anyway since he wants to kill me so much,” replied Gerald with a chuckle as he took another sip of water.

“Then let’s prepare ourselves in the meantime,” said Aiden as he relaxed slightly.
“There’s nothing to prepare. After all, you won’t be helping out much in the first place,” replied Gerald.
“Huh..? Why would you say that?” asked Aiden, rightfully confused.
“Aiden, you only have a single army dagger. Maddox had twenty snipers and at least a hundred soldiers under his command earlier. Tell me again how you’re planning to help?”
“That…” muttered Aiden as he looked at his only dagger before falling silent…
“Still, I’d rather not expose the fact that I’m a cultivator if possible. With that said, I’ll still be bringing you along. Go ask Lucian tomorrow to see if he can get you better equipment,” replied Gerald with a shrug.
“Expose? Gerald, I’m pretty sure everyone in Yanam already knows you’re a cultivator!” said Aiden with a laugh.
“The fewer people who know, the better. Regardless, now that I think about it, just let me ask Lucian about the equipment. Hopefully I can get some good ones for us,” replied Gerald with a sigh.
“Got it,” said Aiden as he nodded in response.
Fast forward to the next day, Gerald went off to look for Lucian the second he got up.
Upon hearing what Gerald had to say, the surprised Lucian couldn’t help but reply, “You… need equipment…?”
“It’s fine if you don’t have any, though I just thought I’d ask,” said Gerald, who was well aware that guns couldn’t be legally obtained in Yanam, which meant that even families with high statuses like the Grubbs had trouble getting their hands on them. With that in mind, apart from the guns owned by the military, all other guns in the country were most probably smuggled in.
“Well, I can get some, but I’ll need some time… Regardless, why are you requesting for them out of the blue?” asked Lucian.
“Let’s just say I don’t want too many more people learning that I’m a cultivator while I’m saving Lindsay. With that said, having guns will surely help with keeping that a secret,” replied Gerald.
“I see… How about this? I’ll make some arrangements later to see if I can get some supplies from the war department. It’ll probably still take a few days, though,” said Lucian, who was eager to help as long as it contributed to saving Lindsay.
“I appreciate the help,” replied Gerald.
“Now, now, remember, you’re the one doing a big favor for me! I should be the one thanking you for going all out just to save my niece!” said Lucian in a sheepish tone.
Before Gerald could reply, Lucian’s butler showed up and said, “Oh? So you’re here as well, Mr. Gerald! How convenient!”
“Is something the matter?” asked Lucian as he watched his butler jog over.
