“Mr. Chance, we’ll reach at daybreak. You haven’t been sleeping well for the past few days. Why don’t you sleep for a while?” asked Tommy worriedly.
Jared had not slept at all for the past two days as he had been guarding Lizbeth. He was afraid that something bad might happen to her when he was asleep.
“I’m fine. Go and rest. Also, protect Mr. Sullivan and Mr. Grange. I have a feeling that Mr. Wood is quite strange,” reminded Jared.
They were not related to Freddy in any way. In fact, they could not even be considered friends—they had merely bought most of the antiques at the auction.
If Freddy truly wanted to help them and flatter Walter, he could just send out a small boat. After all, a trip on this luxurious cruise would cost a hefty sum.
Furthermore, the round trip would take four days in total. The guests on the island would definitely kick up a huge ruckus. Plus, people who could board this luxurious cruise ship were definitely not ordinary.
Yet, despite the risk of offending all the guests, Freddy would rather send them back on this cruise ship. There was definitely something fishy about it.
All businessmen seek profit. Jared did not believe that Freddy was doing all these out of goodwill.
“Okay, I’ll take note.” Tommy nodded.
After two hours, the sky turned bright and they were nearing the dock at Southernshire. At that moment, a few speedboats approached the cruise ship secretly. Seven to eight people climbed onto the ship using ladders.
Soon, they were brought to Freddy’s room. There were four men who looked exactly the same—they were none other than the Ruthless Four, who were also quadruplets.
“They’re here, Boss…” informed a suited man as he walked into Freddy’s room.
Freddy tidied his clothes and waved his hands. “Let them in!”
Soon, the Ruthless Four entered. Freddy immediately got up to welcome them.
Although the Ruthless Four were not old, they were extremely powerful. Freddy frequently relied on their help for his illicit activities, such as killing and smuggling.
“Have a seat, please…” Freddy invited them to their seats politely.
“Mr. Wood, why did you summon the four of us here? Is there a good deal?” asked the eldest in the Ruthless Four.
“Of course! Otherwise, why would I wake you up in the middle of the night?” Freddy smirked.
“Tell us what’s the price this time and who we’re dealing with. The four of us need to plan too!” stated the eldest directly.
Freddy glanced around. The man in the suit immediately chased everyone else in the room out.
“To be honest, I’ve got a few people on this ship. They’re tourists from Horington. I’d like the four of you to kill them. As for the commission, you can quote your own price!” revealed Freddy.
“A few tourists?” The eldest was shocked. “If it’s just a few tourists, your subordinates can kill them easily. You wouldn’t need to hire the four of us, right?”
They knew Freddy well. He was willing to give up his life for money. If the opponents were easy to deal with, he would not bear to pay the Ruthless Four to help.
“There are two martial artists in the group and they seem quite strong too. To be safe, I invited the four of you,” explained Freddy.
“I see. Since there are two martial artists in the group and we don’t know how powerful they are, it’s hard to negotiate an exact price. But it won’t be below a million…”
“No problem! As long as you kill them and toss them into the ocean, I’ll give you five million.” Before the eldest finished his sentence, Freddy agreed easily.
Compared to antiques that cost tens of billions, a few million was nothing.
