“What?” Rat exclaimed in surprise as clarity washed over him. No wonder
he’s so skilled at fighting. I can’t believe I just messed with someone out of
my league. Damn you Mr. Webber for not informing me earlier. I even gave
you a beer bottle.
“Manny, I’m sorry. It was just a friendly fire. I apologize to you on behalf of
Rat.” Samuel bowed slightly, regarding Emmanuel with the utmost
“Apologize to her if that’s what you want to do.” Emmanuel pointed at
Xylie. “Forgive my bluntness, but all of you are only capable of bullying
women. You’re not up to the mark to lay even a finger on me.”
The crowd around them gasped in surprise.
Those words weren’t particularly hurtful, but they were extremely
–humiliating, and yet Rat and his party didn’t dare to utter a word.
Samuel even bowed and laughed. “You’re right. Thank you for showing
Taking in that scene, Xylie admired Emmanuel even more. This man is so
“Come. Since we’re all here, let’s have a few more drinks tonight. Out of
blows, our friendship grows. Haha!” Samuel pulled Emmanuel to sit down
and enjoy alcohol together.
Emmanuel was a man who valued loyalty. Since Samuel had shown him
respect earlier, he had to reciprocate.
After a few drinks, Samuel learned the entire story. It turned out Emmanuel
and Rat had a big fight over a bargirl.
“Haha! Manny, you have good taste!” Samuel immediately pushed Xylie
next to Emmanuel, causing her tender body to press tightly against him.
“Serve Manny well, and I’ll reward you with ten thousand!”
“I-” Xylie hesitated and didn’t refuse at once.
“Mr. Webber, you’ve misunderstood. I-” Emmanuel wanted to decline, but
Samuel and the other men started clamoring.
“Misunderstood? Don’t tell me you’re not satisfied with just one girl? Haha!
In that case, let’s have two girls to accompany him! Manager, make the
Worried they would complicate things, Emmanuel quickly waved his hand
and stood up.
As he got to his feet, Xylie subconsciously followed suit.
The manager was also a competent and tactful person. If it hadn’t been
for Emmanuel, their bar would have surely been thrashed.
Moreover, seeing how Emmanuel was able to be on such good terms with
Samuel at such a young age, the manager figured Emmanuel must be
influential and needed to be treated well.
“Mr. Lowe, the private room is ready for you.” The manager swiftly
approached Emmanuel and Xylie.
Xylie kept her head down, blushing but not refusing.
Milani, standing at one side, mocked Yoel, “Ha! Your goddess is gone. How
should I describe this? It’s like sending the girl you like to a lion’s den!”
Yoel was brokenhearted and deeply upset.
Nevertheless, he wasn’t someone as foolish as Milani. He could tell
Emmanuel wasn’t a lecher.
Besides, since Xylie didn’t rebuff Emmanuel, that implied she felt safer with
Emmanuel. That was certainly better than her being bullied by those
“Haha!” Samuel hurriedly shoved Emmanuel and Xylie into the private
room. “Manny, enjoy yourself tonight! Consider this a return of the favor for
the time you helped me earn three million!”
“Hey-” Emmanuel still wanted to resist, but Samuel closed the door and
locked it from outside.
The door was shut, leaving Emmanuel and Xylie alone inside the room.
The atmosphere instantly turned ambiguous.
Xylie instinctively clutched her chest as her clothes had been torn earlier.
“Are you all right?” Although Emmanuel had a lot of alcohol, he was
actually more composed than Xylie because he had never harbored any
improper thoughts toward women.
“Yes, I’m fine. Thank you for saving me!” she replied shyly.
“I’m glad to hear that.” Emmanuel smiled. “Let me introduce a friend to
you. In fact, he’s the one who asked me to help you…”
He took out his phone as he spoke, wanting to contact Yoel to come in.
However, when he looked at the screen, Emmanuel realized his phone had
run out of battery.
