Finnley greatly admired his audacity, giving him a pat on the shoulder.
“You’re truly the backbone of the Cox family, capable of shouldering the responsibility of being the head of the household. We’ll do as you say.”
Avery gave a slight nod. “All right. Everyone take a short break. We’ll move out in fifteen minutes.”
Immediately, he dispatched two teams, dividing his forces in two. They were to scout the situation around the power base of the Jagger family, to understand the extent of their tight security, and then choose where to enter.
Soon, the two teams returned and relayed the information.
After the most concise and rigorous planning, everyone moved out under the moonlight, closing in on the power base of the Jagger family.
Just then, every door of the Jagger family’s residence flung open. Countless people surged out from within, charging toward them.
Avery’s eyes flashed coldly, his expression serious.
He had anticipated this possibility long ago, so he wasn’t surprised at the moment. However, the present danger still made his heart sink.
He quickly regained his composure, raising his voice as he said, “Don’t panic. Proceed as we discussed earlier!”
As the large group of people charged toward them, they quickly devised a counter-strategy. They split into several groups to hold these people back.
Avery strode forward without changing his expression, heading straight for the power base-the Jagger family’s main residence.
Throughout their journey, many tried to stop them, but he and Violet easily handled them all.
For Avery, these people were nothing significant.
And what he needed to do was to capture the head of the Jagger family-Nelson Jagger.
As the saying goes, to catch the thieves, first catch the ringleader. It was pointless to eliminate countless minions.
He preferred to handle issues in a straightforward and blunt manner. He believed that resolving conflicts swiftly and decisively was the best strategy.
The other party clearly didn’t expect him to charge in directly, let alone with just a young lady in tow. They couldn’t help but be somewhat surprised.
What was even more surprising was his and the young lady’s agility.
Avery came from an ancient martial arts family. From a young age, he had received the strictest training, and his skills were undoubtedly top-notch in Phison.
The most astonishing of all, undoubtedly, was Violet.
In the eyes of others, she was just a young girl, seemingly not yet of age. Her sweet appearance and adorable attire made her look like a little princess no matter how one looked at her.
11:14 Mon, 20 Nov
But at this very moment, her actions were far from those of a little princess.
She was holding a small dagger shaped like a curved knife, dealing with her enemies head-on. The blade went in white, and came out red, all without her batting an eyelid. With every rise and fall of her hand, she struck without the slightest hesitation, let alone fear.
Splatters of fresh blood stained her face, a horrifying red that contrasted with her delicate features, It presented a strangely heart-stopping beauty to all who beheld her.
In the living room, Nelson, watching the scene unfold through the surveillance cameras covering every corner of the courtyard, swirled his wine glass with keen interest.
“This young lady is quite interesting. I didn’t expect Avery to have such a fascinating person by his side.”
The red liquid swirled around the cup’s interior, and he quickly drained it in a single gulp.
Beside him, his assistant Maverick Jagger took the empty wine glass and asked, “Sir, do you want me to send more people to deal with them directly?”
Nelson raised an eyebrow. “Mav, our Jagger family isn’t so impolite. Since they’ve come all the way to our doorstep, we can’t just ignore them. That’s not the Jagger family’s way of treating guests.”
“So, what you’re saying is…”
Nelson sat up straight, a playful look on his face, “Let others fight and kill as they please, but for these two, let them in.”
Even though Maverick didn’t understand what Nelson was planning, he immediately set out to do it.
Outside, less than a hundred meters from the brightly lit house, ten men appeared before Avery.
These ten individuals, like specters, descended from the heavens.
Everyone’s face was covered, their expressions unreadable. Yet, from their indifferent eyes, a hint of murderous intent could be discerned.
Clearly, these people are the last line of defense for the Jagger family.
Avery wiped the corner of his mouth, then turned to Violet beside him. “How do you feel? Can you still hold on?”
Violet wiped the dagger in her hand, flashed a sweet smile, and said, “Sure, sure.”
Avery raised an eyebrow, looking at her pale face. Suddenly, he patted her on the head.
“If you can’t hold on any longer, don’t try to be tough. Stay here and wait for me. Once I’ve sorted everything out, I’ll take you home.”
Violet was momentarily stunned. She stared at him with her clear, large eyes.
A peculiar sensation began to stir within her. She hadn’t felt such familial affection in a long time.
She lowered her eyes and suddenly said, “No.”
“Hmm?” Avery’s lips twitched slightly. “Acting cute won’t work.”
But Violet didn’t care. She tilted her head back, avoiding his hand, and then resolutely stood in front
eyes became sharp as she stared intently ahead.
In truth, after so many days, her body had reached its limit.
But she would never stop here.
From the moment Avery brought her home, she had made up her mind. In this lifetime, she would do everything in her power to protect this man even if it meant sacrificing her own life.
“What are you waiting for? Come at me!” she shouted at the ten of them without a trace of fear.
Just then, a round of applause rang out.
