While his facial expression was mistaken as being scared, Han Jingru was actually puzzled at the man's claims as he thought to himself, If that guy truly worked for Ling Heng and was his right-hand man, he should have frequented Mojo. Which meant, I should have seen him before...
The only explanation he could think of was that the guy was blowing his own horn. Perhaps he did have connections with Ling Heng, but he was definitely not as close to him as he claimed.
“Wow! What an honor to be speaking to Ling Heng's subordinate,” Han Jingru said as he put on a wide grin.
Hearing his flattery, the guy looked even more smug. He haughtily declared, “Now that you know my identity, get on your knees and apologize!”
However, Han Jingru shook his head and said, “Even if Ling Heng himself came, he wouldn't have the guts to ask for my apology. Who are you to do so?”
“How dare you disrespect Mr. Heng?” the man hissed through his clenched teeth. He didn't expect Ling Heng's name would mean nothing to him as this tactic would work all the time.
