Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2332
“I’ve heard rumors that the island can’t be located unless auctions are held here. Is that true?” asked Gerald as he looked at Yaacob.
“I… can’t really answer that since this is the first I’m hearing about the rumor myself! In case you doubt me, know that though we’re in charge of maintaining order here, we aren’t usually allowed to be on the island unless we’re ordered to. With that said, we come here about the same time as all of you do.” Replied Yaacob as he shook his head.
Sensing that Yaacob wasn’t lying, Gerald then sighed as he replied, “Alright. Then tell me what else you know about this place…”

“Well, there’s a lot of good food here! Allow me to lead you to them!” exclaimed Yaacob with a glint of excitement in his eyes.
Upon hearing that, Gerald didn’t really know whether to feel happy or sad. While it was true that he now knew that the organizer wasn’t planning on making a move on him just yet, thus ensuring Aiden and Lucian’s safety, he still had no idea what Yaacob meant by ‘he’d learn more in time’.
Regardless, even though Yaacob was talking to Gerald in a way that almost suggested that he was family, despite being complete strangers, in the end, the young man was still a disciple of the organizer, and it wasn’t easy getting to know one. With that in mind, Gerald made up his mind that he’d get information from him no matter what.
With that, he was prompted to say, “Forget it, I’d rather return to get some rest. Before that, however, do you know of a strong, old woman?”
“Who are you calling an old woman? She’s…” replied Yaacob before quickly covering his mouth.
“She’s…?” said Gerald.
“She’s probably just someone who’s here for the auction,” replied Yaacob as he shook his head.
“I see,” said Gerald with a shrug, knowing full well that the old woman had connections with the organizer’s family. Why else would the old man in gray choose not to pursue him even though this was his territory? After all, Gerald believed that the old man was capable enough to easily sense his presence with his essential qi.
Either way, Yaacob then added, “So… are you heading back to rest now?”
“If I am, are you going to continue following me?” asked Gerald with a slightly helpless sigh.
“But of course! It’s my mission to do so, after all. Don’t worry, I won’t harm you! ” replied Yaacob in an honest tone.
“Then can you at least tell me why you’re doing all this…?” muttered Gerald, thinking that everything that had happened on this island was equally as baffling.
“I can’t tell you yet, but…”
“I’ll find out later. I get it… Whatever the case is, even if you do follow me around, just make sure not to get in my way,” said Gerald, already knowing what Yaacob was going to say.
“I definitely won’t!” declared Yaacob as he shook his head, prompting Gerald who already knew that the street stalls had nothing that he needed to begin heading back to rest.
