The Legendary Man
“Hello?” A burly man’s voice came from the other end of the line.
“It’s me, Jonathan Goldstein,” said Jonathan calmly.
The tone from the other end of the line changed drastically after Jonathan introduced himself.
“Hey Randall, is Cranur under your jurisdiction?” asked Jonathan nonchalantly.
“Yes, it is. Are you there now?” asked Randall nervously.
“Yes, I am, and the police officers here are trying to arrest me,” shared Jonathan calmly.
“What?” shouted Randall. He was on the other end of the line, but when he learned about what was
happening, he got so shaken that his legs trembled.
The police officers in Cranur almost took Jonathan away? What the hell? Who would dare to do
something like that?
“W-Where are you now, Mr. Goldstein?” asked Randall immediately. He was quick to strategize and
deal with the matter. “I will call their mayor now and have him go to you right away.”
“I am in Heart’s Hospital. He has ten minutes to travel over. If he’s late… Well, tell him not to bother to
clock in tomorrow,” replied Jonathan.
“Understood, Mr. Goldstein.”
Randall didn’t dare to waste any time after receiving Jonathan’s orders.
Click! The call ended, and Jonathan turned around to stroke Alice’s head. He promised, “Don’t worry,
the mayor will be here soon to apologize to you.”
“Really?” asked Alice as her big, round eyes stared at Jonathan. She would believe in Jonathan, even
if no one else did.
She thought that it was ridiculous as well, but that didn’t stop her from having faith in Jonathan.
He’s talking about the mayor, who is a very powerful political figure. In fact, the mayor is the most
powerful being here, so getting him over to apologize to me… It’s borderline impossible. Actually, it’d
be a miracle if the mayor simply helps by stopping the police from arresting us.
“Of course. When have I ever lied to you?” said Jonathan. He was still stroking her head at the time
and looked as though he was cooing a kid. To everyone else, however, those words and that gesture
were all lies.
He is such a terrible actor.
“You may be young, and you may be worthless, but you can definitely put on an act,” commented
Jared. He couldn’t help sneering at that point. “Getting the mayor over so he can apologize to the two
of you? Who do you think you are?
“You know, I’d like to see that for myself. How, oh, how will you get the mayor to do that?”
Jared waved his hands after he finished speaking. He ordered, “You boys can hold off for a minute. Let
him keep his charade on. I’d like to see how long he can keep it up.”
The police officers turned to their leader after hearing Jared’s request. Their inquiring gaze prompted
the leader to scold, “What the hell are you looking at me for? Didn’t you hear what the good doctor
said? Why are you so eager to take them away? Move aside already!”
The police officers were about to make their moves, but their leader’s commands made it so that they
had to back away.
Time tickled by.
Everyone was mocking Jonathan with their blatant stares. The worst among them was Jared, who did
not bother to hide his sneers.
He looked at Jonathan as though the latter was a clown.
Alice, who had been hiding behind Jonathan, was starting to worry as well. She wasn’t worried about
their safety, though. Instead, she wondered what would happen if the mayor never showed up.
Would those people let Jonathan off the hook easily?
“Ten minutes is almost up, so where is the mayor? I don’t see him anywhere,” taunted Jared after he
checked his watch and grinned evilly at Jonathan.
Jared had wasted ten precious minutes for that single moment.
He was going to humiliate Jonathan and make a fool out of the latter.
“Why are you so excited? I told him to be here in ten minutes, and that was it. He’s dead if he is late by
even a second,” replied Jonathan calmly upon hearing what Jared said.
“Okay, if that is how you want to play it, then I’ll play along. There are ten more seconds left,” said
Jared while checking his watch.
The countdown stopped there because a series of hushed footsteps suddenly came from the corridor.
Before long, a middle-aged man in a black suit rushed into the ICU.
As he made his way over, he demanded, “Move aside. I’m about to be late!”
“Mr. Lautner?” said Jared. He recognized the middle-aged man as soon as the latter showed up.
Hearing the mayor’s name prompted the leader of the police to gasp as his heart thumped fast.
His expression stiffened right away.
“Make way!” demanded the mayor as he pushed the stunned police officer away. The former rushed
into the ICU and asked, “Who’s Mr. Goldstein?”
“That’s me,” replied Jonathan calmly.
“Mr. Goldstein,” greeted the mayor, Robert Lautner, whose eyes shone with a hint of surprise upon
seeing Jonathan. Despite that surprise, the good mayor still lowered his stance and bowed down to
Jonathan. “I am so sorry, Mr. Goldstein. I was late.”
“Not at all. You still have a few seconds to spare,” replied Jonathan while staring calmly over. “So,
you’re the mayor, huh?”
“Yes, that’s me. I hurried over as soon as I received Mr. Swindell’s call,” replied Robert while nodding
nervously. “What happened, Mr. Goldstein? Which idiot was trying to throw you in jail?”
Jonathan didn’t bother saying anything. He simply shifted his gaze to the leader of the police.
The leader’s heartbeat instantly became more rapid. In fact, sweat was dripping from his back as soon
as Jonathan looked over.
“Shut up!” interrupted Robert before the leader could say anything. “Which division are you from? Get
the police chief over right away!”
“Mr. Lautner, I…” said the leader, who was sweating bullets when he heard how Robert was going to
involve the police chief. That got the leader to tremble a little and to look at Jared to ask for help.
That gaze made it impossible for Jared, who wanted to slip away while everyone was distracted, to
escape. Hence, Jared had no choice but to bite down and said, “Hello, Mr. Lautner.”
“Jared? What are you doing here?” asked Robert. He had only just realized that Jared was there.
That was understandable since Robert was preoccupied with the ten-minute deadline he was given.
There was no way he could spare the time to look around.
“Mr. Lautner, may I know how you know this guy?” asked Jared cautiously.
The proud stance Jared had earlier had since faded.
“He is our VIP!” answered Robert. His expression turned evil immediately because he did not know
who Jonathan was, either.
All Robert knew was that Jonathan was someone in close contact with Randall.
As for Randall… Well, he was the mayor’s boss!
Randall practically owned the whole of Jadeborough, so Robert would likely be fired if he stepped on
