They were always an obstacle to Camino, let alone in urgent times. Shouldn’t they be hitting them when they were down at a time like this?
“Commander-in-Chief Leng, I am indeed Sanji. If you don’t believe me, you can ask Leader Chi Yang when he gets back. He boarded the ship an hour ago and should arrive at Jiang District’s port in about an hour.”
Sanji had already said this, so there was no reason for Leng Jinpeng to not believe him.
“Then I shall thank you, General Sanji. I, Leng Jinpeng, owe you for this. If you’re in any trouble in the future, as long as it’s not illegal, I’ll do my absolute best to help you.”
Leng Jinpeng knew Chi Yang must have helped Sanji too, so that was why he was conceding. Even so, Leng Jinpeng was willing to thank Sanji.
Because Sanji kept this in the dark, the head of state of Mustapha would not ask for an explanation from Camino. Hence, the general would not punish him.
Thus, he was willing to owe Sanji a favor.
Under any normal circumstances, the other party would accept this.
However, Sanji rejected this graciously, “No, no, no! Commander-in-chief Leng, I accept your kindness, but you don’t owe me anything, so you don’t have to thank me. If there’s anything you need help with in the future, we’ll talk about it. I inadvertently saved Leader Chi this time, so I can only say I did it because it was convenient for me to do so. You don’t have to be grateful to me, Commander-in-chief Leng.”
On the contrary, if Chi Yang was not there and if Chi Yang did not come to Mustapha, his employer would not have appeared. If his employer did not go to save Chi Yang, he would still be Venato’s dog.
Venator might even have killed him if he found out that he had overheard his secret.
He did not do anything and he became the star of Mustapha; He became rich because of his employer. If this was the case, how could he go and reap any goodies from the man his employer likes?
He wanted to get some form of reward, but he was afraid that if he did, his employer would be upset and she would have him experience the same fate that befell Lieutenant General Nelson and Major General Venato. That would be the worst thing that could happen.
Sanji’s mindset was orthodox. Since he got such a big piece of the pie, he would not try to ask for more. If he pushed his luck, it would be a tragedy if his pie was taken away from him.
He was sure that the day his employer stopped supplying him with pie would be the day he was destroyed.
Leng Jinpeng and Sanji exchanged courtesies for a long while. Leng Jinpeng felt that General Sanji was a straightforward and honest man, so he insisted that he owed Sanji a favor, or else he would feel uneasy. On the other hand, Sanji kept on rejecting over the phone, causing him to sweat from frustration.
In the end, Leng Jinpeng could not win against this honest and just general. Thus, he hung up the phone after thanking him profusely.
After he hung up the phone, he got Chi Yang’s call.
“Chi Yang? How are you? Are you on your way back?” Leng Jinpeng asked emotionally.
“Yeah, we’re in the sea of Camino now. We have three critically injured men on our side. There were no casualties.”
When he got Chi Yang’s answer, Leng Jinpeng collapsed on the chair weakly.
His restless heart finally settled down.
“Alright, I’ll get someone to provide support at the port.”
Chi Yang stood at the bow of the ship and put back his phone. His long and lean body was facing the wind as the moonlight shone on his firm and muscular body, casting a long and clear shadow on the splint.
