Alvin stared intently at Jonathan, his eyes flashing with deep hatred.

This can't be possible! No way! Jonathan's nothing but a loser!

When Alvin first set his eyes on Josephine, he had sent someone to investigate her ex-husband and realized the latter was merely a live-in son-in-law who married into the Smith family because he was hunted down. If Josephine had not saved his life, Jonathan would have been killed by his enemy ages ago.

There's no way this loser is a commander! Even if all the men in this world are dead, Jonathan would still be too useless to be one.

“Who the hell are you, Jonathan Goldstein?” Alvin demanded, his jaw tightly clenched.

As the only son of the chairman of Langford Group, it was humiliating for him to be forced to a corner by a useless live-in son-in-law. What will others think of me if this gets out?

“I'm someone you can't afford to trifle with!” Jonathan scoffed. “Remember, if I ever find you pester Josephine again, Langford Group shall cease to exist!”

It was an explicit threat.

Infuriated by his blatant intimidation, Alvin glared at him viciously. If looks could kill, Jonathan would have been ripped into pieces by then.

Alas, his glare did not even faze Jonathan, who turned to Josephine and said, “Josephine, I don't know what trouble your family has gotten into, but no matter what it is, I can deal with it. You don't have to marry someone you have no feelings for just because of a trivial matter!”

A trivial matter?

Upon hearing his words, those around him raised their brows skeptically.

It was common knowledge that the Smith family had offended the most influential family in Jadeborough—the Blackwood family. In fact, when the Blackwood family sneezed, Jadeborough would catch a cold.

Seeing how determined she was to leave, he immediately went after her.

Once he left, the tense atmosphere in the room promptly lightened up.

Grabbing the chair for support, Alvin finally got to his feet and stared at Jonathan's retreating figure with a hateful gaze.

Being the only son of the chairman of Langford Group, he had never received such humiliating treatment in his lifetime. The fact that Jonathan had trampled over his pride enraged him, and he refused to let the matter slide.

“Mr. Langford, you must teach him a lesson. He was so arrogant!”

“Yes! Did you hear how he claimed to be the most influential person in the world? He must be out of his mind!”

“Oh, perhaps he has just escaped from an asylum!”

Once Jonathan was gone, all the fear the group of people had toward him fled their minds, and they started mocking him one after another.

“Nonsense! Didn't you hear what Josephine said? He must've gotten lucky to get recognized by a big shot. Otherwise, why would Andrew Morsley treat him with the utmost respect?”

“Perhaps he sold himself to a big shot. Don't forget that some influential people have certain fetishes!” someone jeered, and the rest shared knowing looks.

“Enough. Can't you just shut the f*ck up?” Just when they were ridiculing Jonathan, Alvin slammed his palm on the table heatedly.

“Jonathan, no matter what big shot you're currying favor with, don't forget that we're in Jadeborough! This is my family's territory. No matter who you are, you're no match for us! In less than three days, I'll make sure you grovel at my feet for forgiveness! When that happens, you shall know who calls the shots in Jadeborough,” he declared indignantly.

Right then, Alvin had only one thought in his mind—he wanted Jonathan dead.

Besides Jonathan, he also wanted the entire Smith family to pay the price.
